• Make Meat Great Again! Don’t Let The Globalists Pull This Off
    Corey Lynn

    It’s 2023, and most people are scurrying about their days making plans for the Holidays and figuring out whether to serve up a roast, a turkey or a ham. Meanwhile, over 70,000 clowns are toasting champagne at their 5 star hotels in Dubai while thinking they can tell people whether or not a roast, a turkey, or a ham is allowed. While flying around in their private jets, they giggle as they cook up their conspiracy theory on “climate change” to convince people to eat less meat. While they’re dancing with politicians and coercing nations to set new policies and regulations to harm the productivity of farmers and ranchers – our food source – people should be supporting them and stand together in defiance of this nonsense.

    The funny thing is, while these clowns conspire and celebrate their narrative to save the planet, in part by the absurdity of reducing meat consumption, many of these same clowns are supporters of Merck and were pushing for a vote at Codex to inject cattle, pigs, and poultry with Merck’s toxic steroid-like drug zilpaterol hydrochloride to produce more muscle and less fat. This of course brings a fortune to Merck, while benefiting the bottom line for ranchers who are ok with poisoning their livestock and humans. How’s that for an oxymoron? That’s right, on November 28th, while the clowns sipped champagne on their private jets headed to the COP28 in Dubai to “save the world from climate change” and instruct nations to reduce meat consumption, their counterparts were at FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy, voting to approve this poison.

    So the question is – do they want to reduce meat consumption or do they want to muscle up the meat and make it more desirable to eat so people devour toxins? Perhaps it’s both. Who can keep track anymore? The cocktails are endless, from GMOs to hormones, antibiotics, DNA and mRNA, or growing meat in a petri dish or 3D printing it. These globalists want to make it so inedible, no one will want to consume meat.

    According to Scott Tips, President of The National Health Federation, who attends these Codex meetings to fight for the safety of consumers, this is all about money, and by adopting the Codex standard zilpaterol can “flood the world markets unobstructed.” This would allow Merck to force all of the countries who voted against it to open their markets to zilpaterol-tainted meat as well. Most of the western hemisphere has already been using zilpaterol despite the fact that there has never been a risk assessment done, it’s banned from use in horses because it’s not safe, and Merck actually withdrew it from the market in 2015 before working its way back in. At that time, under Merck’s brand name “Zilmax,” even Cargill and Tyson suspended their purchases of Zilmax-fed cattle in North America.

    The many-years-long battle against the toxic vet drug came to an end when the Commission voted 88-49 with 11 abstentions to approve zilpaterol MRLs (maximum residue levels). Scott Tips reported that those “speaking against the standard were the European Union, Switzerland, Norway, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkey, China, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iran, Iraq, UAE, Algeria, Belarus, Syria, Tunisia, North Macedonia, and Cameroon. Those pushing the standard were the United States, Canada, New Zealand, many African states, and every single one of the Western-hemisphere countries. The UK remained strangely aloof, as if wishing to avoid offending anyone.”

    Back in the U.S., Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has been trying to get the PRIME Act passed for nearly 6 years, but feels he is beginning to make headway now. If passed, the PRIME Act will make it much easier for local farms to compete with the handful of big meat companies, by allowing safe, local processing options rather than a farmer having to travel for hours to a USDA-inspected processing facility.

    According to Rep. Massie, “Current law exempts custom slaughter of animals from federal inspection regulations, but only if the meat is slaughtered for personal, household, guest, and employee use (21 U.S.C. § 623(a)). This means that in order to sell individual cuts of locally raised meats to consumers, farmers and ranchers must first send their animals to one of a limited number of USDA-inspected slaughterhouses. These USDA-inspected slaughterhouses are sometimes hundreds of miles away from farms and ranches, adding substantial transportation costs and increasing the chances of locally raised meat co-mingling with industrially-produced meat. The PRIME Act would expand the current custom exemption and allow small farms, ranches, and slaughterhouses to thrive.”

    While the battle on meat continues, it’s important for everyone to do their due diligence when it comes to shopping for and purchasing meat. According to the USDA, in March they released a proposed rule with new regulatory requirements on those voluntary “Product of USA” labels, whereby the claim can only be used on meat, poultry and egg products if they are derived from animals that are born, raised, slaughtered and processed in the USA. So pay attention to the labels – on all food for that matter. There are some small farms that offer co-ops whereby several people can go in on the ownership of cattle and split the beef. There are also a handful of companies who ship bundles of beef. In either case, it’s always important to confirm how the cattle are raised and processed, and if they are given zilpaterol, antibiotics, hormones, or mRNA. Always support your local farmers, whether it be for meat, vegetables, fruit, raw milk, or other items. They are quite literally our key to survival, unless of course you are able to grow enough food and raise livestock to support your entire family on an annual basis. They deserve our support and respect.

    Corey’s Digs has done extensive research on an incredible, fully vertically integrated large ranching operation in the U.S. who controls their entire supply chain. It’s quite impressive. The cattle are all pasture raised on over 290,000 combined acres by their own mothers. This is a premium lineage of all Prime and High Choice, with the processing facility being right on the ranch, and the beef is aged for 21 days before shipping. Never ever zilpaterol, antibiotics, hormones, mRNA, or vaccines. They ship a variety of bundles monthly or every other month, along with individual added cuts, straight from the ranch to a customer’s home. The biggest difference is the taste – it’s amazing how delicious Prime beef is without all those toxins. The beef is exclusive to members through Shopping Club Freedom, which boasts hundreds of non toxic products that everyone uses in their daily lives, all of which are patented and produced by this same company right here in the U.S. It’s one heck of a solution to ensure access to healthy products and beef while sticking it to the globalists who want to rule everyone’s life, which is why Corey’s Digs has partnered with them and has been shopping there for over two years now.

    No one should let these madmen make choices for them or their families. Everyone should support U.S. farmers and ranchers, get behind Rep. Massie’s PRIME Act, and don’t buy the poison these globalists are selling.

  • Rostec State Corporation Makes Yaroslavl International Family Film Capital

    The world's largest festival of family cinema “Within the Family” gathered more than 10 000 viewers and turned Yaroslavl into the family film capital of the world. The festival was held with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, the Government of the Yaroslavl Region, the Mayor's Office of Yaroslavl, the Rostec State Corporation and personally Sergey Chemezov, Director General of the Rostec State Corporation, co-chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Nationwide Program Within the Family.

  • 6 Viral Misconceptions and Clickbait
    Corey Lynn

    Repetition doesn’t make it true. Facts do matter when trying to assess the big picture. There are countless psychological campaigns rolling out simultaneously, most of which are done to induce fear and cognitive dissonance while other goals are achieved. Alongside those are hyped up clickbait posts on social media that are meant to create a false sense of hope, fear, anger, confusion, or generate ad revenue. The problem is, a lot of people tend to react from emotion and share the information without even taking a closer look or doing a little bit of research. Some of the most annoying clickbait has been circulating the internet for years, even decades, and this article is intended to end those misconceptions once and for all.

    Download this report in PDF for FREE in the Bookshop >

    1) “Wikileaks Just Released A Massive Dump Of Files!”


    No, they really didn’t.

    Wikileaks did not “just” release a massive dump of files, so when you see a hyped up post on social media claiming “OMG! Wikileaks just released a massive data dump on Clintons and…..,” it’s untrue. The link people are sharing is Wikileaks main index file page to all links on their site, which has always been there, and there is a mountain of information to sift through.

    For added confirmation, simply pull up the index file page archived from 2014 (ten years ago) and a character count, excluding spaces, will show 92,797 characters. In comparison, the current index page shows 93,252 characters. The difference? Over the course of ten years, 455 characters have been added, which wouldn’t account for more than a small handful of files added since 2014. Furthermore, all of their leaks show the release date on their site.

    2) “Deagel Is A Deep State Military Site Claiming The U.S. Population Will Be At 99 Million In 2025!”

    Totally false.

    Deagel is not the same as Deagle, as in Edwin Deagle. The posts, articles, and videos that have been circulating for over a decade are drawing people’s focus to a man that has absolutely nothing to do with Deagel.com. Nor is the site run by deep state. A quick glance through the website itself is a good indicator of that.

    Though it is currently set to private, a search through the archives shows that the website was registered on August 31, 2003 from an address in Spain by “Gas Deagel.”

    The website posts updates on various military related projects and equipment with links to the source sites they found the info on. They also post a chart of each country’s population. At one time the site was posting projected populations into the future, such as their 2007 forecast about 2017, or their 2019 forecast about 2025. This is why the viral posts began in the first place, because the site suggested the U.S. population would drop significantly as the years ticked by, and even had 2025 at a population of 99 million.

    They had a short disclaimer at the top of the page stating, “There are 179 countries listed with a forecast for 2025. Click on the icons to sort the list. This website is non-profit, built on spare time and we provide our information and services AS IS without further explanations and/or guarantees. We are not linked to any government. Take into account that the forecast is nothing more than a game of numbers whether flawed or correct based upon some speculative assumptions.” They also had a more lengthy disclaimer at the bottom in pink which comes with type errors and no affiliation to military. It’s a whole lot of nonsense, which is probably why they removed it from their site, not to mention the fact that they’ve been way off with their “forecasts.”

    This site is nothing but an aggregator of military news from other sites, that published an absurd “population forecast” based on a whole lot of nothing. After reviewing this and digging into it, I came across James Corbett’s report on it and gave it a quick listen. He drew the same conclusions.

    There are numerous articles, social media threads, videos, and even claims in books that have been telling folks for years that Edwin Deagle is behind this website, all because of the spelling of his name – which is incorrect from the domain name and registrar. There are no other data points linking him to this website.

    3) “China Is Buying Up All The Farmland In The U.S.!”


    That’s quite an exaggeration.

    Though China has indeed purchased U.S. farmland, and even schemed with lawmakers to purchase acreage in Missouri (more on this below), Canada owns over 14 million acres, whereas China owns less than a half million acres of U.S. farmland.

    There are 880 million acres of farmland in the U.S. Investment firms and individuals of Canada own more U.S. farmland than any other foreign country. In total, 43.4 million acres of U.S. forest and farmland, or 3.4% of ag land, is foreign owned as of Dec. 31, 2022.

    Of the 43.4 million acres that are foreign owned, here are some of the top ones:

    Canada = 32%
    Netherlands = 12%
    Italy = 6%
    UK = 6%
    Germany = 5%
    China owns less than 1%

    According to the USDA, Brazos Highland and Murphy Brown LLC, a subsidiary of Smithfield Foods, are the two biggest Chinese-owned companies that own land in the U.S. Brazos Highland accounts for 102,345 acres, and Smithfield owns 97,975 as of December, 2022.

    The top five states with the biggest Chinese holdings are Texas, North Carolina, Missouri, Utah and Virginia.

    For perspective, from 2021 to 2022, there was an increase in 2.58 million U.S. ag acres acquired by foreign countries. These charts provide a good visual for all U.S.-owned ag land as of 2021.


    None of this dismisses concerns over Chinese-owned companies or citizens acquiring U.S. farmland. Quite the contrary. In fact, in a 2020 report by Corey Lynn, there is a section specifically on Smithfield Foods, the largest pork producer in the world. What’s most concerning is the fact that it was acquired by the Chinese company WH Group back in 2013, which included Premium Standard Farms in Princeton, Missouri, yet at that time Missouri law banned all foreign ownership of land. Curiously, just one week prior to this acquisition Missouri legislature amended the law to allow for 1% of Missouri farmland to be owned by foreign investors (roughly 289,000 acres), clearing the way for WH Group to acquire 40,000 acres. Before WH Group took on its new name, it was called CDH, founded by Wu Shangzhi, former senior investment officer at the World Bank Group’s IFC, and boy is it a twisted tale of connections that people must read. WH Group is also the majority shareholder in Henan Shuanghui Investment & Development Co. which is China’s top meat producer.

    Hence, is this case, it would seem the food supply – specifically pork – may just be more of a concern than U.S. land holdings itself.

    On another note, a lot of people believe Bill Gates owns more U.S. farmland than any other U.S. citizen, but his 260,000 acres of U.S. farmland doesn’t even put him close to the top 20. According to the Land Report’s top 100 U.S. landowners, Bill Gates falls in 42nd place, while Jeff Bezos sits in 25th place. This doesn’t negate the fact that no one is happy about Bill Gates owning so much farmland in the U.S. because he’s always up to something nefarious.

    4) “China Owns TikTok! We Need To Ban It Now!”

    China does in fact own a stake in TikTok, but it’s American private equity and venture capital firms that hold the cards.

    Catherine Austin Fitts explained in a Solari Report titled Netanyahus Mass Atrocity Machinery: What Will You Do?, as follows:

    “The real stories of mass atrocity in Gaza keep sneaking out on TikTok. American private equity and venture capital firms, including KKR, own approximately 60% of ByteDance, the company that owns the TikTok app. The Congress—filled with legislators alleged to be dual-passport citizens—is now trying to make sure that the criminal syndicate can assert control over ByteDance, which will allow them to squeeze out the Chinese founders and investors by picking up their much smaller 20% equity position for cheap.

    The criminal syndicates love to use the Chinese foreign bogeyman as a stalking horse. They love to use politicians to lower the price at which they can buy—and raise the price at which they can sell. Those capital gains fund political contributions and kickbacks.”

    5) “China Owns The U.S.! They Hold All Of Our Debt!”

    Sure, China holds a lot of U.S. debt – $770.7 billion in Treasury holdings as of April 2024, but why doesn’t anyone ever mention the fact that Japan holds far more U.S. debt than China, to the tune of $1.15 trillion in Treasury securities? Or, why doesn’t anyone mention the fact that the United Kingdom is trailing just behind China at $710.2 billion? Luxembourg and Canada hold the 4th and 5th largest U.S. debt. Don’t people want all the facts, or do they just like to scream “China, China, China!”?

    Who is actually the largest owner of U.S. debt? That would be the U.S. government. They hold Treasury securities in government accounts and pension funds.

    As of June 28, 2024, the U.S. national debt was at $34.83 trillion. That is an increase of nearly $12 trillion since 2019, just before the Covid plandemic hit. In fact, between 2019 and 2020, it jumped $4.7 trillion.

    But who’s counting? Certainly not the Pentagon who has failed six consecutive internal audits. Over $21 trillion has gone missing from U.S. federal accounts at HUD and the Department of Defense.

    Be sure to read “Who Are THEY?” by Corey Lynn, to understand the depths and complexities of just how deep this corruption is and who is behind it all.

    6) “Tom Hanks, Bill Gates, And Hillary Clinton Were Executed!” (And if not, they must be in GITMO!) And, “JFK Jr. And Jeffrey Epstein Are Still Alive!”

    This is an all time favorite clickbait because it’s just amazing how many people concur and share it with the world as though it is 100% fact, and will spend hours debating people on it. The information was assuredly passed through a high-up military insider that leaked it to a friend and they passed it on to another, and another, and another. It doesn’t matter if any of them are seen in person or on television because those would be immediately dismissed as either clones or deep fakes.

    The reality is, a lot of people will believe what they want to believe if it induces a specific emotion they wish to feel, or if it gives them a sense of hope or “winning” as many like to put it. Yet, they have no solid proof and state it as fact. They expend time and energy on pondering it, fantasizing about it, debating people over it, and sharing it with others. What does this accomplish? What does it achieve? If they are in fact dead – has anything changed for the better because of those outcomes? No. So why the big debate and distraction?

    The same goes for JFK Jr. and Jeffrey Epstein being alive. Despite all of the evidence pointing to their deaths, some people are adamant that they are alive, without a shred of proof. It’s one thing to discuss such things, it’s another to declare it as fact. Sure, there are plenty of bot farms that fuel these tales, but there are plenty of regular folks who have jumped on the bandwagon to give it more life – or death.

    Tips And Tactics

    How do you want to spend your time? Do you want to feed the enemy instead of feeding your soul? Human beings have 24 hours a day, 8,760 hours a year to enjoy life, minus 2,920 hours required for sleep alone. According to a Datareportal Global Overview Report in January, worldwide internet users between the ages of 16 to 64 spend an average of nearly 7 hours a day online, across all devices. The U.S. is even worse, exceeding 7 hours per day. The report states that “Scientists have measured the amount of data that enter the brain and found that an average person living today processes as much as 74 GB in information a day (that is as much as watching 16 movies), through TV, computers, cell phones, tablets, billboards, and many other gadgets. Every year it is about 5% more than the previous year.”

    In Corey Lynn’s 2021 report titled Covid-19 Pt. 5: Psychologists, Scientists and The CIA Tell Us Fear is The Real Killer, the report goes in depth on the following topics:

    • Capitalizing on Fear
    • Fear’s Effect on The Brain and Health
    • CIA Documents on Brainwashing and “Learned Helplessness”
    • Expert in Deception, Psychological Operations & National Security Speaks to Cadets at West Point

    This is an incredibly important read to understand the psychological games, how the brain works, and more importantly – how brainwashing works. Once people have reached a point of exhaustion, which most have at this point, the mind becomes far more suggestive and it’s easy to fall into clickbait traps.

    A few quotes from a CIA document covered in this report:

    “When reduced to extreme dependency and confusion, the individual is ready to react favorably to any person or idea which promises to end his painfully confused state. At this point, the re-education begins.”

    “The process of brainwashing is essentially one in which two paths are being followed. One is the demoralizing process, the result of which is to reduce the victim’s critical faculties to the point where he no longer discriminates clearly between true and false, logical and illogical. The other is the reorganizing process, in which he is required to construct his confessions, elaborate it, defend it, and believe it.”

    “Communist control of the individual and the masses is little different from controls exercised by virtually all absolute forms of government, past and present.”

    Here are two helpful articles Corey Lynn wrote to assist people with discerning truth from lies:

    • 10 Fake News Tactics

    • Confused? How to Compartmentalize Fact from Fiction and Plausibility

    Corey’s Digs hosts an extensive list of resources for fact checking and deep research. There are well over 100 free resources to explore and get to the bottom of things.

    Perhaps the best way to stay on top of things is to narrow time spent online, narrow the focus to the important things, and then narrow those things down by researching the facts before drawing conclusions based on emotional reactions. All industries are taking a hit or a twist from food supply to financial, technology, surveillance, housing, farming, and many others. Maybe selecting two or three of those that seem to have the most impact in one’s life, is a simpler approach to wading through the gigabytes of information one’s brain is downloading on a daily basis.

    6 Viral Misconceptions and Clickbait Corey Lynn Repetition doesn’t make it true. Facts do matter when trying to assess the big picture. There are countless psychological campaigns rolling out simultaneously, most of which are done to induce fear and cognitive dissonance while other goals are achieved. Alongside those are hyped up clickbait posts on social media that are meant to create a false sense of hope, fear, anger, confusion, or generate ad revenue. The problem is, a lot of people tend to react from emotion and share the information without even taking a closer look or doing a little bit of research. Some of the most annoying clickbait has been circulating the internet for years, even decades, and this article is intended to end those misconceptions once and for all. Download this report in PDF for FREE in the Bookshop > 1) “Wikileaks Just Released A Massive Dump Of Files!” No, they really didn’t. Wikileaks did not “just” release a massive dump of files, so when you see a hyped up post on social media claiming “OMG! Wikileaks just released a massive data dump on Clintons and…..,” it’s untrue. The link people are sharing is Wikileaks main index file page to all links on their site, which has always been there, and there is a mountain of information to sift through. For added confirmation, simply pull up the index file page archived from 2014 (ten years ago) and a character count, excluding spaces, will show 92,797 characters. In comparison, the current index page shows 93,252 characters. The difference? Over the course of ten years, 455 characters have been added, which wouldn’t account for more than a small handful of files added since 2014. Furthermore, all of their leaks show the release date on their site. 2) “Deagel Is A Deep State Military Site Claiming The U.S. Population Will Be At 99 Million In 2025!” Totally false. Deagel is not the same as Deagle, as in Edwin Deagle. The posts, articles, and videos that have been circulating for over a decade are drawing people’s focus to a man that has absolutely nothing to do with Deagel.com. Nor is the site run by deep state. A quick glance through the website itself is a good indicator of that. Though it is currently set to private, a search through the archives shows that the website was registered on August 31, 2003 from an address in Spain by “Gas Deagel.” The website posts updates on various military related projects and equipment with links to the source sites they found the info on. They also post a chart of each country’s population. At one time the site was posting projected populations into the future, such as their 2007 forecast about 2017, or their 2019 forecast about 2025. This is why the viral posts began in the first place, because the site suggested the U.S. population would drop significantly as the years ticked by, and even had 2025 at a population of 99 million. They had a short disclaimer at the top of the page stating, “There are 179 countries listed with a forecast for 2025. Click on the icons to sort the list. This website is non-profit, built on spare time and we provide our information and services AS IS without further explanations and/or guarantees. We are not linked to any government. Take into account that the forecast is nothing more than a game of numbers whether flawed or correct based upon some speculative assumptions.” They also had a more lengthy disclaimer at the bottom in pink which comes with type errors and no affiliation to military. It’s a whole lot of nonsense, which is probably why they removed it from their site, not to mention the fact that they’ve been way off with their “forecasts.” This site is nothing but an aggregator of military news from other sites, that published an absurd “population forecast” based on a whole lot of nothing. After reviewing this and digging into it, I came across James Corbett’s report on it and gave it a quick listen. He drew the same conclusions. There are numerous articles, social media threads, videos, and even claims in books that have been telling folks for years that Edwin Deagle is behind this website, all because of the spelling of his name – which is incorrect from the domain name and registrar. There are no other data points linking him to this website. 3) “China Is Buying Up All The Farmland In The U.S.!” That’s quite an exaggeration. Though China has indeed purchased U.S. farmland, and even schemed with lawmakers to purchase acreage in Missouri (more on this below), Canada owns over 14 million acres, whereas China owns less than a half million acres of U.S. farmland. There are 880 million acres of farmland in the U.S. Investment firms and individuals of Canada own more U.S. farmland than any other foreign country.

  • Hey Steve Kirsch, Sars-Cov-2 is Still a Fraud and Your Genome Argument is a Disingenuous Sham
    The Health Freedom Movement's clown prince is at it again.

    Anthony Colpo

    Kirsch is back on the warpath. Humiliated after his admission that he relied entirely on the word of ‘experts’ as proof that Sars-Cov-2 had been isolated, he has now found salvation for himself and the rest of Team Pandemic.

    Or so he thinks.

    First, a little history.

    Kirsch insists Sars-Cov-2 is real, even though it has never been isolated by anything that even begins to resemble sound science.

    Kirsch has repeatedly refused to acknowledge the inherent absurdities in the viral ‘isolation’ charade. He has been informed repeatedly of these absurdities - but he flatly refuses to listen.

    More precisely, he doesn’t want to listen.

    Kirsch is Not a Very Clever Guy

    Kirsch likes to promote himself as a “pretty clever guy,” but he’s not.

    Kirsch advertised his scientific ineptitude back in January 2022 when he posted this terribly lame attempt at rebutting the no-virus argument.

    Kirsch’s post was titled “Has the virus been isolated? Yes.”

    Kirsch knows the virus has been isolated because … he doesn’t.

    Turns out Kirsch doesn’t have a clue about viral isolation. His knowledge of virology is as deficient as his stock-picking skills.

    Kirsch asked out aloud in his post:

    "Do these isolates have other stuff in them? How were they created?”

    The response?

    “I don’t know because I haven’t analyzed them personally. But my scientist friends seem happy with them."

    Thanks Steve. I love it when my dishonest critics reveal they have no clue what they’re talking about.

    "I rely on expert opinions of people who I trust for certain issues like whether or not the virus has been 'isolated.' It’s a reasonable approach if you are careful about which experts you trust."

    Among the ‘experts’ Kirsch ‘carefully’ trusts is the perennially angry, DARPA-funded, victim-narcissist Robert Malone, who apparently is such a genius that after observing how mRNA technology was still unfit for human use, allowed himself to be injected twice with it.

    Except that he didn’t, according to travelling partner Steven Hatfill.

    Yep, Kirsch sure knows how to pick his experts.

    Kirsch is Back on the Virus Warpath

    We all had a good laugh at Kirsch’s expense after his self-debunking “I rely on the experts” post.

    Kirsch, however, doesn’t like being laughed at. His ego demands that he be admired and revered as a really smart guy.

    So he got together with his ‘expert’ friends and plotted his rebuttal.

    Stevie Meets With His Masters

    “Steve,” said his ‘expert’ handler friend David Rockefelon III, “you’ll never win the no-virus argument by trying to claim the virus has been physically isolated - because it hasn’t.”

    “So what do I do?,” asked Kirsch.

    “In Davos, we have a saying,” chimed Rectal Swab. “If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit!”

    “I’m not sure I follow,” said a befuddled Kirsch.

    It was at this point that Gill Bates interjected. “Steve, you need to start posting articles about gene sequencing.”

    “Gene sequencing?” asked a perplexed Kirsch. “What’s that?”

    “Exactly,” replied Baron Badchild the 58th. “Most people don’t have a clue about genomics, so that’s where you need to steer the argument.”

    “You need to distract people from the fact that the virus has never been isolated. You are instead going to baffle them with the genome argument.”

    “How do I do that?” asked Kirsch.

    Badchild began his instructions. “You are going to post an article titled, 'How can millions of people, all exhibiting signs of COVID have whole genome sequences that match the SARS-CoV-2 reference genome if viruses don't exist?'"

    “I don’t even know what that means,” objected Kirsch.

    “You don’t need to know,” replied Swab. “Just post ze bloody article!”

    “But …”

    “But nothing!” roared the megalomaniac billionaires in unison.

    “Don’t forget its us who put you where you are now. And we can put you back down too," warned this Inhuman League of evil globalists.

    "But the four years we have had have been such good times, I still love you," replied a hurt Kirsch, on the verge of tears.

    “Stop being such a bloody sook!” Badchild threw a box of tissues at Kirsch. "Now get out there and do as you're told."

    And so Steve did as he was told. On June 14, 2024, he posted an article titled “How can millions of people, all exhibiting signs of COVID have whole genome sequences that match the SARS-CoV-2 reference genome if viruses don't exist?”

    The article, of course, made no mention that the alleged ‘genome’ of Sars-Cov-2 is a pseudoscientific farce.

    The article made no mention of the fact that the Sars-Cov-2 genome was not obtained by ‘deconstructing’ an actual virus, but created on a computer using the ‘sequencing’ ruse. Tiny, incomplete nucleotide sequences were fed into a computer, which was then allowed to create a 30,000-character genome. That’s like pulling off a tire, fanbelt and seat belt from a Volkswagen, feeding their details into a computer, and being told you have a Porsche.

    I’ll repeat it again, in case anyone doesn’t comprehend what I just wrote, because it is of critical importance:

    There is no such thing as a Sars-Cov-2 genome that was analyzed and documented after taking a Sars-Cov-2 virion and breaking it down into its constituent nucleotides.

    That has never been done, because Sars-Cov-2 has never been isolated. You can’t dismantle something that doesn’t exist.

    You can, however, take bits of something that does already exist, feed them into a computer, and allow it to construct an in silico ‘genome.’

    You set the parameters for both the in silico reconstruction and the accompanying PCR test to be sufficiently non-specific, so that millions of people exhibiting symptoms of cold and influenza and also millions of asymptomatic people exhibiting symptoms of nothing will miraculously have 'whole genome sequences' that match the 'Sars-CoV-2 reference genome.'

    Using ‘approved’ methods and test kits, of course.

    That’s why ‘Sars-Cov-2’ can be detected in fluid and blood samples taken from volunteers long before December 2019, which is when ‘Sars-Cov-2’ allegedly first appeared in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

    It explains why this supposedly ‘novel coronavirus’ was able to be detected in blood samples obtained in Mexico and Italy as far back as 2018, even though the official narrative has Sars-Cov-2 kicking off its World Domination Tour in early 2020.

    The non-specificity of the sequencing and testing charades also explains why it’s not just people with the sniffles and asymptomatic folks that miraculously show these 'whole genome sequences.' Papaya, quail and goat can also test positive for Sars-CoV-2!

    Heck, even sewerage floating through Catalonian caca pipes in March 2019 has tested positive for the Woohoo virus. "This striking finding," wrote the researchers who tested the Barcelona wastewater samples, "indicates circulation of the virus in Barcelona long before the report of any COVID-19 case worldwide."

    That’s because the nucleotide sequences that trigger a positive result for the presence of ‘Sars-Cov-2’ are not from a ‘novel virus’ - they are a common and preexisting phenomenon.

    Kirsch, of course, mentions none of this.

    His false bravado is in full swing when he again proposes another monetary challenge, this time a $10,000 bounty to anyone who can prove Sars-Cov-2 does not exist.


    NEWS FLASH: We don’t need to disprove the existence of a negative, Kirsch.

    If someone claims there are invisible goblins living under their kitchen table, no-one is obliged to prove them wrong. The onus is on the person issuing the unlikely claim to prove there are indeed invisible little people residing in their kitchen.

    Similarly, it’s up to those who claim the existence of a ‘novel’ and uber-deadly virus to prove its existence.

    So far, they’ve failed miserably.

    Taking gobs of phlegm from people with atypical pneumonia, mixing them with antibiotics, culture medium and bovine fetal serum is not isolation - its anti-isolation!

    Mixing this porqueria with African green monkey kidney cells - which can be relied upon to predictably deform in the presence of kidney-toxic antibiotics - is not proof that there is a pathogenic virus in the mix. It’s simply proof that virology has about as much credibility as witchcraft.

    Heck, the Doherty researchers who loudly proclaimed they isolated ‘Sars-Cov-2’ from the first Australian case admit in their paper the patient healed just fine with low-flow oxygen and antibiotics - which are for bacteria, not viruses!

    He was not suffering ‘COVID’, he was a pneumonia patient - no doubt one of many strategically flown around the world to help kick off the worldwide ‘isolation’ wank.

    I’ve already explained all this in detail here and here, so can I have my $10,000 now?

    Oh, wait, Steve Kirsch is a self-aggrandizing liar who has no intention of ever paying out on his challenges. Kirsch loves the rush of bravado and admiration he receives when he issues a bold challenge, but his “I’m a pretty clever guy” ruse makes no allowances for being wrong and publicly humiliated. That’s why he quickly goes into denial and cancel mode every time you fulfill one of his public challenges.

    The Real Challenge that Kirsch and the Scamdemic Crowd Need to Meet

    The real question is not “why millions of people, all exhibiting signs of COVID have whole genome sequences that match the SARS-CoV-2 reference genome if viruses don't exist?”

    The real questions that need asking are:

    Can anyone isolate Sars-Cov-2 in a manner that really does physically separate a pathogenic organism that can be subsequently shown to be an infectious and harmful virus?

    In other words, can this virus be shown to be transmittable between humans via coughing/sneezing/breathing/touching/’jumping”/etc etc etc and to cause the symptoms of ‘COVID’ upon infection?

    Upon having genuinely isolated this virus and proving it does cause an illness called ‘COVID’ in humans, can they then take virions from this virus and use those to catalog its entire genome?

    Can they then compare this genome to other similarly obtained ‘virus’ genomes from pre-December 2019 and point to key differences that prove the existence of a novel virus?

    No matter how Kirsch and his masters try to worm and squirm and reframe the argument, the inescapable truth is that the answer to all the above questions remains a big, fat NO.

    No-one has come close to doing this, and that includes the authors of this paper which Kirsch claims “the ‘no virus’ crowd stays clear of.”

    To cover for the inescapable fact that no-one has ever physically isolated a virus the way bacteria has been isolated, Kirsch gets his disingenuous on.

    “Fire can’t be isolated,” he says. “Gravity can’t be isolated.”

    Stupid Analogy Alert: Fire doesn’t need to be isolated the way a virus does. It can be seen with the naked eye, and there’s no mistaking it for a bunch of exosomes.

    As for gravity, of course you can’t “isolate” an invisible force. But I can sure as hell prove to you it exists, Kirsch, and in a manner in which it can’t be mistaken for anything else. Meet me at the top of a tall structure and I’ll explain.

    COVID: It’s Still Cold and Flu Renamed

    There is no Sars-Cov-2. There is no COVID.

    There is cold and flu and pneumonia, and they existed long before December 2019. In early 2020, they were renamed ‘COVID’ and the proof of its existence was testing positive on a fraudulent PCR test.

    That’s why, as the 'COVID' hysteria hit fever pitch during 2020, regular influenza magically disappeared almost entirely.

    Steve Kirsch, ladies and gentlemen, is part of the sham.

    I’ll have plenty more to say about Kirsch and the genome wank in due course, but today I’ll conclude with the following gems from our not-so-clever guy.

    “If the virus doesn’t exist, why is it we can SEE the SARS-CoV-2 under electron microscopes with its telltale ‘spikes’?” writes Kirsch.

    Excuse me Kirsch, but how do you know the alleged Sars-Cov-2 virions are not simply cellular vesicles - which is just what they look like?

    Go ahead, prove they’re actual virions from an infectious virus called Sars-Cov-2, using the methods outlined above.

    I’ll wait.

    Kirsch then proves just how utterly unsuited he is to this topic when he claims that a New York Times article from October 2020 “shows virions inside the cell as well as outside the cell.”

    “All of the images in the Times article are fully explained by virology,” claims Kirsch, “and are inexplicable if the virus doesn’t exist.”

    It’s time to have another hearty laugh at Stevie’s expense. Here are the images that the NYT reproduced, which any sober halfwit can tell are computer-generated creations:







    Pack it up and pack it in, Steve, this is getting beyond a joke.

    Hey Steve Kirsch, Sars-Cov-2 is Still a Fraud and Your Genome Argument is a Disingenuous Sham The Health Freedom Movement's clown prince is at it again. Anthony Colpo Kirsch is back on the warpath. Humiliated after his admission that he relied entirely on the word of ‘experts’ as proof that Sars-Cov-2 had been isolated, he has now found salvation for himself and the rest of Team Pandemic. Or so he thinks. First, a little history. Kirsch insists Sars-Cov-2 is real, even though it has never been isolated by anything that even begins to resemble sound science. Kirsch has repeatedly refused to acknowledge the inherent absurdities in the viral ‘isolation’ charade. He has been informed repeatedly of these absurdities - but he flatly refuses to listen. More precisely, he doesn’t want to listen. Kirsch is Not a Very Clever Guy Kirsch likes to promote himself as a “pretty clever guy,” but he’s not. Kirsch advertised his scientific ineptitude back in January 2022 when he posted this terribly lame attempt at rebutting the no-virus argument. Kirsch’s post was titled “Has the virus been isolated? Yes.” Kirsch knows the virus has been isolated because … he doesn’t. Turns out Kirsch doesn’t have a clue about viral isolation. His knowledge of virology is as deficient as his stock-picking skills. Kirsch asked out aloud in his post: "Do these isolates have other stuff in them? How were they created?” The response? “I don’t know because I haven’t analyzed them personally. But my scientist friends seem happy with them." Thanks Steve. I love it when my dishonest critics reveal they have no clue what they’re talking about. "I rely on expert opinions of people who I trust for certain issues like whether or not the virus has been 'isolated.' It’s a reasonable approach if you are careful about which experts you trust." Among the ‘experts’ Kirsch ‘carefully’ trusts is the perennially angry, DARPA-funded, victim-narcissist Robert Malone, who apparently is such a genius that after observing how mRNA technology was still unfit for human use, allowed himself to be injected twice with it. Except that he didn’t, according to travelling partner Steven Hatfill. Yep, Kirsch sure knows how to pick his experts. Kirsch is Back on the Virus Warpath We all had a good laugh at Kirsch’s expense after his self-debunking “I rely on the experts” post. Kirsch, however, doesn’t like being laughed at. His ego demands that he be admired and revered as a really smart guy. So he got together with his ‘expert’ friends and plotted his rebuttal. Stevie Meets With His Masters “Steve,” said his ‘expert’ handler friend David Rockefelon III, “you’ll never win the no-virus argument by trying to claim the virus has been physically isolated - because it hasn’t.” “So what do I do?,” asked Kirsch. “In Davos, we have a saying,” chimed Rectal Swab. “If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit!” “I’m not sure I follow,” said a befuddled Kirsch. It was at this point that Gill Bates interjected. “Steve, you need to start posting articles about gene sequencing.” “Gene sequencing?” asked a perplexed Kirsch. “What’s that?” “Exactly,” replied Baron Badchild the 58th. “Most people don’t have a clue about genomics, so that’s where you need to steer the argument.” “You need to distract people from the fact that the virus has never been isolated. You are instead going to baffle them with the genome argument.” “How do I do that?” asked Kirsch. Badchild began his instructions. “You are going to post an article titled, 'How can millions of people, all exhibiting signs of COVID have whole genome sequences that match the SARS-CoV-2 reference genome if viruses don't exist?'" “I don’t even know what that means,” objected Kirsch. “You don’t need to know,” replied Swab. “Just post ze bloody article!” “But …” “But nothing!” roared the megalomaniac billionaires in unison. “Don’t forget its us who put you where you are now. And we can put you back down too," warned this Inhuman League of evil globalists. "But the four years we have had have been such good times, I still love you," replied a hurt Kirsch, on the verge of tears. “Stop being such a bloody sook!” Badchild threw a box of tissues at Kirsch. "Now get out there and do as you're told." And so Steve did as he was told. On June 14, 2024, he posted an article titled “How can millions of people, all exhibiting signs of COVID have whole genome sequences that match the SARS-CoV-2 reference genome if viruses don't exist?” The article, of course, made no mention that the alleged ‘genome’ of Sars-Cov-2 is a pseudoscientific farce. The article made no mention of the fact that the Sars-Cov-2 genome was not obtained by ‘deconstructing’ an actual virus, but created on a computer using the ‘sequencing’ ruse. Tiny, incomplete nucleotide sequences were fed into a computer, which was then allowed to create a 30,000-character genome. That’s like pulling off a tire, fanbelt and seat belt from a Volkswagen, feeding their details into a computer, and being told you have a Porsche. I’ll repeat it again, in case anyone doesn’t comprehend what I just wrote, because it is of critical importance: There is no such thing as a Sars-Cov-2 genome that was analyzed and documented after taking a Sars-Cov-2 virion and breaking it down into its constituent nucleotides. That has never been done, because Sars-Cov-2 has never been isolated. You can’t dismantle something that doesn’t exist. You can, however, take bits of something that does already exist, feed them into a computer, and allow it to construct an in silico ‘genome.’ You set the parameters for both the in silico reconstruction and the accompanying PCR test to be sufficiently non-specific, so that millions of people exhibiting symptoms of cold and influenza and also millions of asymptomatic people exhibiting symptoms of nothing will miraculously have 'whole genome sequences' that match the 'Sars-CoV-2 reference genome.' Using ‘approved’ methods and test kits, of course. That’s why ‘Sars-Cov-2’ can be detected in fluid and blood samples taken from volunteers long before December 2019, which is when ‘Sars-Cov-2’ allegedly first appeared in the Chinese city of Wuhan. It explains why this supposedly ‘novel coronavirus’ was able to be detected in blood samples obtained in Mexico and Italy as far back as 2018, even though the official narrative has Sars-Cov-2 kicking off its World Domination Tour in early 2020. The non-specificity of the sequencing and testing charades also explains why it’s not just people with the sniffles and asymptomatic folks that miraculously show these 'whole genome sequences.' Papaya, quail and goat can also test positive for Sars-CoV-2! Heck, even sewerage floating through Catalonian caca pipes in March 2019 has tested positive for the Woohoo virus. "This striking finding," wrote the researchers who tested the Barcelona wastewater samples, "indicates circulation of the virus in Barcelona long before the report of any COVID-19 case worldwide." That’s because the nucleotide sequences that trigger a positive result for the presence of ‘Sars-Cov-2’ are not from a ‘novel virus’ - they are a common and preexisting phenomenon. Kirsch, of course, mentions none of this.

  • Why Egypt is not a friend of Palestine Part Two - Sisi deepens ties with Israel
    Sisi has placed Egypt in a position of political and military paralysis - destroying Egypt's sovereignty in the process

    vanessa beeley

    In Part One I covered Egypt’s debt quagmire that has reduced its ability to act as a sovereign nation, indebted to the Western neocolonialist cartel and their Arab State allies in the region.


    Source: Central Bank of Egypt

    In Part Two I want to delve into the Sinai Peninsula destabilisation and Egypt’s flourishing military and economic collaboration with Israel.

    The Sinai Islamist insurgency (an ISIS offshoot branded Wilayat Sinai or Sinai Province - SP) began at the same time as the Western-orchestrated “Arab Springs” were launched across the region but in particular, in Egypt and Syria.

    The campaign “Operation Eagle” began in 2011 following an increase in alleged Islamist militant activities in the Peninsula. Approximately 1000 troops and hundreds of armored personnel carriers were deployed.

    This represented the first major deployment of Egyptian troops in Sinai since the end of the 1973 Arab-Israeli War, thus marking a substantial change in the military and security situation in Sinai.

    I personally remember trying to cross the Sinai in August 2012 for my first attempt at entering Gaza. Fifteen Egyptian soldiers were killed at the Rafah border during Ramadan by unknown gunmen and the entire area was shut down while Egyptian military scoured the desert for the killers. Entry to Gaza was denied, even to Palestinians.

    The recently “elected” Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi ordered full military control of the Sinai. Gaza was put on devastating lockdown with Morsi flooding the lifeline tunnels between Gaza Rafah and Egyptian Rafah with sewage water. This was done under the pretext of preventing the “flow of weapons” from Hamas to the Islamists in the Sinai - despite the fact that Hamas and ISIS have not been considered allies although their agendas may have some cross-over, as in Syria.

    At the same time Morsi was effectively exporting terrorist (Muslim Brotherhood) forces to fight alongside Al Qaeda in the Western-sponsored regime change war in Syria. As reported by the Washington Institute:

    In May 2013, for example, Qatar-based cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi -- a major Brotherhood ideological influence -- called on Sunnis to join the fight in Syria. The next month, then-President Morsi's office announced that Egyptians returning from the fight in Syria would not be prosecuted, and Mr. Morsi later keynoted a rally at Cairo Stadium at which radical clerics endorsed the Syrian jihad.

    After Sisi took control in Egypt, deposing Morsi in a violent military coup, reportedly supported by Israel - the radicalisation of Muslim Brotherhood factions in Egypt increased as did the exodus to fight in Syria.

    In 2022 Arab Center DC reported that:

    Over the past decade, Sinai has been the epicenter of terrorist attacks in Egypt and the base from which Islamist militants wage their insurgency against the Egyptian government. Their assaults mainly target security forces, including military convoys, checkpoints, and facilities, and have mostly taken place in the cities of northern Sinai, particularly al-Arish, Sheikh Zuweid, and Rafah. However, as a result of Egyptian military operations, over the past few years SP’s activities have moved to the western part of North Sinai, notably to the city of Bir al-Abd, which in November 2017 witnessed one of the deadliest extremist attacks in Egypt’s history when SP militants stormed the al-Rawda Mosque, injuring 128 people and killing more than 300, including 27 children.

    Under Sisi the military operations have achieved very little success in quelling the SP insurgency. Sisi has also been accused of human rights abuses in his “war on terror” with indiscriminate attacks that have led to the destruction of Bedouin homes and villages and the deaths of civilians during bombing campaigns and artillery bombardment.

    From a Human Rights Watch report (Caveat - HRW is a tool of the US deep state and as such, the information must be considered in context with the direction of travel of Zionist and US agendas in the region)

    Egyptian military and police have carried out systematic and widespread arbitrary arrests—including of children—enforced disappearances, torture, and extrajudicial killings, collective punishment, and forced evictions—abuses it has attempted to conceal through an effective ban on independent reporting. The military has also possibly conducted unlawful air and ground attacks that have killed numerous civilians—including children—and used civilian properties for military purposes. In addition, it has recruited, armed, and directed local militias, which have themselves engaged in serious rights violations, such as torture and arbitrary arrests, often exploiting their position to settle personal scores.

    This failure to bring militants to justice fuels theories about the Sisi regime’s political interest in prolonging the conflict in Sinai, which may serve to secure domestic political support - war is always a way to retain power particularly when confronting turbulent domestic environments.

    It could also have a more sinister purpose. We should always bear in mind that ISIS in Syria is a US alliance proxy as are the majority of terrorist groups globally, acting in the interests of the Zionist regime and neocolonialist adventurism in the West Asia region and further afield.

    Strategic ties between Egypt and Israel have deepened under Sisi’s rule. Israel has allowed significant Egyptian military units and armaments to be deployed to the northeastern section of the Sinai Peninsula in contravention of the 1979 Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty, which restricts the number of Egyptian personnel and armaments in this zone.

    Egypt allegedly gave Israel permission to carry out drone strikes in the Sinai, officially targeting extremists which could have included Palestinian Resistance fighters. Israel carried out an estimated 100 strikes between 2015 and 2018, with the 2014 savage aggression against Gaza conducted during these operations.

    When the New York Times exposed these operations in 2018 it described Egypt and Israel as secret allies in a covert war against a common foe. The Sisi regime issued vehement denials fearing a public backlash from a majority Egyptian population that has historically opposed the Zionist theft and occupation of Palestinian territory.

    This information leak also led to a security blackout in the Sinai region which has provided cover for the Sisi regime human rights abuses including the razing of Egyptian Rafah homes and infrastructure and the displacement of thousands of Bedouin tribes.

    In 2019 Sisi admitted to CBS ‘60 Minutes’ News program that relations were the closest they had ever been with Israel. From a Reuters report:

    Asked whether the cooperation was the closest and deepest that he has had with Israel, Sisi responded: "That is correct."

    "The Air Force sometimes needs to cross to the Israeli side. And that's why we have a wide range of coordination with the Israelis,"

    The Egyptian regime also tried to kill this report, demanding that CBS not air the interview. The request was denied.

    Both Egypt and Israel have cooperated in closing down tunnels connecting the Sinai to Gaza, which have been used to smuggle people and goods in both directions. Egypt has also kept the border crossing between Gaza and the Sinai closed for the most part, generally only opening it for certain periods to allow for medical and family visits.

    Again, I have personally experienced the dehumanisation and collective humiliation of Palestinians by the Egyptian security forces at the Rafah border crossing. In August 2012 temperatures were in the mid 40s and the area outside the entrance gates to the border terminal had no shade. Buses were constantly arriving carrying more Palestinian families to the area.

    Thousands of Palestinians were waiting at the gates to be processed and to return to Gaza. The gates remained closed from morning to night for three days forcing us to sleep in Al Arish which was known as a security risk especially for foreigners.

    On the third day, with crowds of Palestinians packed into a small area outside the gates in sweltering temperatures and a cloudless sky - the Egyptians opened a tiny side gate forcing the Palestinian crowds to crush each other in an attempt to push through the gap. Egyptian guards yelled and pushed the scrambling people, treating them just as Zionists treat them in the apartheid Occupied Territories. This inhumane treatment did not improve in the passport processing terminal where Egyptian intelligence forces deliberately delayed the procedures and left Palestinians waiting for hours.

    In May 2020, the head of Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency traveled to Cairo to meet secretly with Egyptian officials, according to Israeli press reports. The meeting was supposedly geared to alerting Cairo about Netanyahu’s annexation plans for the West Bank - the plans were delayed but this serves to demonstrate the close intelligence and political ties between the two countries.

    The natural gas field alliance

    In 2021 Egypt’s Minister of Energy Tarek al-Molla traveled to Israel to meet with his Israeli counterpart, Yuval Steinitz, as well as with Prime Minister Netanyahu, to discuss a major collaborative project. From the ACDC report:

    Gas from Palestine’s large offshore Leviathan field in the eastern Mediterranean would be transported via a new pipeline on the seabed to connect with liquefication facilities in Egypt. Currently, gas from the Leviathan field is being sent to Egypt via a pipeline that runs to the Sinai Peninsula. The goal of this new project, according to an Israeli official, would be to use these facilities to export gas to Europe, where demand is rising.

    Undoubtedly, Israel sees this collaboration as a way of linking the Egyptian economy to Israel so that any future Egyptian leader would think twice about rolling back bilateral relations.

    From Egypt’s perspective, this deal fits into its plans to become a major regional hub for natural gas. In 2015, a large gas field, called Zohr, was discovered in Egyptian territorial waters in the Mediterranean, and Egypt has been the force behind the establishment of the “East Mediterranean Gas Forum” which includes Cyprus, Greece, Israel, Italy, Jordan, and the Palestinian Authority which is nothing more than a traitorous subordinate of the Zionist regime.

    The tourism incentive

    In early March 2021, Israeli Minister of Intelligence Eli Cohen met with Egypt’s Deputy Minister of Intelligence Nasser Fahmi in the coastal resort of Sharm el-Sheikh and said Egypt was doing “everything possible” to make the Sinai safe for Israeli tourists.

    Interestingly, Cohen was reportedly accompanied by 60 Israeli officials and businesspeople, indicating that both countries hope to boost tourism in the coming years. (ACDC)

    Again Egypt ensured scarce media coverage of the Cohen delegation. The risk of public backlash was still high with the Egyptian public sympathy consistently engrained in the Palestinian nationalist movement.

    Cohen was cited as saying:

    “Egypt is interested in promoting cooperation with Israel in all fields. We will continue to act to bolster economic and bilateral ties in the future.”

    Polling in 2020 conducted by the respected Zogby Research Services found some interesting data on Egyptian public attitudes toward Israel and the Palestinian issue. The question “How important is it that there be a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?” revealed that 79 percent of Egyptians thought it was “very important”; 15 percent said “somewhat important”; and only 6 percent said “somewhat unimportant or not important at all.” Concerning the question about the possibility of Israeli annexation of large parts of the West Bank, 75 percent of Egyptians believe that cooperation with Israel should come to an end if that were to occur.

    There are limits to how far Sisi can publicly go in collaborating with Israel and a more serious disconnect from the Arab Peace Initiative would incur domestic unrest. At the same time he must avoid any major confrontation with Israel to secure the strategic and economic projects that have ensured financial and political support from the Zionist lobby and supporters in the US. Sisi must also keep the US and EU on board to avoid prosecution for the human rights abuses conducted by his regime.

    It should however come as no surprise that, since October 7th, the Sisi regime has banned journalists from entering Gaza:

    Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said “any unilateral action” by Egypt as regards letting journalists into Gaza might be seen [by Israel] as “inappropriate” and might “have adverse consequences to other components” of the arrangement between Egypt and Israel, such as “the entry of assistance.”

    Cairo-based journalists confirmed that they had been told to request Israel’s agreement if they wanted to enter Gaza via the Egyptian Rafah border crossing. Those journalists who did seek Israel’s permission were refused entry.

    An audio recording of the response that an Israeli press spokesperson gave to a journalist who requested a permit to enter via Rafah. She said she could not issue permits for a crossing point that is not under Israeli control and, referring to what the Egyptians are telling journalists, she said: “I have the impression it’s just a pretext. I think they’re making you go round in circles.”

    Both regimes have an agenda of preventing international media coverage of the Zionist brutal genocide that has been ongoing for 9 months in Gaza. Israel is the driver of the blockade but Egypt is complicit in the deliberate news black-out which only serves to protect Israel from exposure as the terrorist entity it really is.

    In Part Three I will get to the non-state actors with close ties to the Sisi regime who control Sinai, mediate with Israel and secure monopoly deals to rebuild Gaza post 2021’s Zionist aggression.

    In further chapters I will also have a look at some of the organisations that publicly oppose Sisi’s normalisation-with-genocidal-Israel policy and examine who is really responsible for the humanitarian relief blockade on trucks entering Gaza through Rafah since October 7th, Israel or Egypt?

Source: Central Bank of Egypt In Part Two I want to delve into the Sinai Peninsula destabilisation and Egypt’s flourishing military and economic collaboration with Israel. The Sinai Islamist insurgency (an ISIS offshoot branded Wilayat Sinai or Sinai Province - SP) began at the same time as the Western-orchestrated “Arab Springs” were launched across the region but in particular, in Egypt and Syria. The campaign “Operation Eagle” began in 2011 following an increase in alleged Islamist militant activities in the Peninsula. Approximately 1000 troops and hundreds of armored personnel carriers were deployed. This represented the first major deployment of Egyptian troops in Sinai since the end of the 1973 Arab-Israeli War, thus marking a substantial change in the military and security situation in Sinai. I personally remember trying to cross the Sinai in August 2012 for my first attempt at entering Gaza. Fifteen Egyptian soldiers were killed at the Rafah border during Ramadan by unknown gunmen and the entire area was shut down while Egyptian military scoured the desert for the killers. Entry to Gaza was denied, even to Palestinians. The recently “elected” Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi ordered full military control of the Sinai. Gaza was put on devastating lockdown with Morsi flooding the lifeline tunnels between Gaza Rafah and Egyptian Rafah with sewage water. This was done under the pretext of preventing the “flow of weapons” from Hamas to the Islamists in the Sinai - despite the fact that Hamas and ISIS have not been considered allies although their agendas may have some cross-over, as in Syria. At the same time Morsi was effectively exporting terrorist (Muslim Brotherhood) forces to fight alongside Al Qaeda in the Western-sponsored regime change war in Syria. As reported by the Washington Institute: In May 2013, for example, Qatar-based cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi -- a major Brotherhood ideological influence -- called on Sunnis to join the fight in Syria. The next month, then-President Morsi's office announced that Egyptians returning from the fight in Syria would not be prosecuted, and Mr. Morsi later keynoted a rally at Cairo Stadium at which radical clerics endorsed the Syrian jihad. After Sisi took control in Egypt, deposing Morsi in a violent military coup, reportedly supported by Israel - the radicalisation of Muslim Brotherhood factions in Egypt increased as did the exodus to fight in Syria. In 2022 Arab Center DC reported that: Over the past decade, Sinai has been the epicenter of terrorist attacks in Egypt and the base from which Islamist militants wage their insurgency against the Egyptian government. Their assaults mainly target security forces, including military convoys, checkpoints, and facilities, and have mostly taken place in the cities of northern Sinai, particularly al-Arish, Sheikh Zuweid, and Rafah. However, as a result of Egyptian military operations, over the past few years SP’s activities have moved to the western part of North Sinai, notably to the city of Bir al-Abd, which in November 2017 witnessed one of the deadliest extremist attacks in Egypt’s history when SP militants stormed the al-Rawda Mosque, injuring 128 people and killing more than 300, including 27 children. Under Sisi the military operations have achieved very little success in quelling the SP insurgency. Sisi has also been accused of human rights abuses in his “war on terror” with indiscriminate attacks that have led to the destruction of Bedouin homes and villages and the deaths of civilians during bombing campaigns and artillery bombardment. From a Human Rights Watch report (Caveat - HRW is a tool of the US deep state and as such, the information must be considered in context with the direction of travel of Zionist and US agendas in the region) Egyptian military and police have carried out systematic and widespread arbitrary arrests—including of children—enforced disappearances, torture, and extrajudicial killings, collective punishment, and forced evictions—abuses it has attempted to conceal through an effective ban on independent reporting. The military has also possibly conducted unlawful air and ground attacks that have killed numerous civilians—including children—and used civilian properties for military purposes. In addition, it has recruited, armed, and directed local militias, which have themselves engaged in serious rights violations, such as torture and arbitrary arrests, often exploiting their position to settle personal scores. This failure to bring militants to justice fuels theories about the Sisi regime’s political interest in prolonging the conflict in Sinai, which may serve to secure domestic political support - war is always a way to retain power particularly when confronting turbulent domestic environments. It could also have a more sinister purpose. We should always bear in mind that ISIS in Syria is a US alliance proxy as are the majority of terrorist groups globally, acting in the interests of the Zionist regime and neocolonialist adventurism in the West Asia region and further afield. Strategic ties between Egypt and Israel have deepened under Sisi’s rule. Israel has allowed significant Egyptian military units and armaments to be deployed to the northeastern section of the Sinai Peninsula in contravention of the 1979 Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty, which restricts the number of Egyptian personnel and armaments in this zone. Egypt allegedly gave Israel permission to carry out drone strikes in the Sinai, officially targeting extremists which could have included Palestinian Resistance fighters. Israel carried out an estimated 100 strikes between 2015 and 2018, with the 2014 savage aggression against Gaza conducted during these operations. When the New York Times exposed these operations in 2018 it described Egypt and Israel as secret allies in a covert war against a common foe. The Sisi regime issued vehement denials fearing a public backlash from a majority Egyptian population that has historically opposed the Zionist theft and occupation of Palestinian territory. This information leak also led to a security blackout in the Sinai region which has provided cover for the Sisi regime human rights abuses including the razing of Egyptian Rafah homes and infrastructure and the displacement of thousands of Bedouin tribes. In 2019 Sisi admitted to CBS ‘60 Minutes’ News program that relations were the closest they had ever been with Israel. From a Reuters report: Asked whether the cooperation was the closest and deepest that he has had with Israel, Sisi responded: "That is correct." "The Air Force sometimes needs to cross to the Israeli side. And that's why we have a wide range of coordination with the Israelis," The Egyptian regime also tried to kill this report, demanding that CBS not air the interview. The request was denied. Both Egypt and Israel have cooperated in closing down tunnels connecting the Sinai to Gaza, which have been used to smuggle people and goods in both directions. Egypt has also kept the border crossing between Gaza and the Sinai closed for the most part, generally only opening it for certain periods to allow for medical and family visits. Again, I have personally experienced the dehumanisation and collective humiliation of Palestinians by the Egyptian security forces at the Rafah border crossing. In August 2012 temperatures were in the mid 40s and the area outside the entrance gates to the border terminal had no shade. Buses were constantly arriving carrying more Palestinian families to the area. Thousands of Palestinians were waiting at the gates to be processed and to return to Gaza. The gates remained closed from morning to night for three days forcing us to sleep in Al Arish which was known as a security risk especially for foreigners. On the third day, with crowds of Palestinians packed into a small area outside the gates in sweltering temperatures and a cloudless sky - the Egyptians opened a tiny side gate forcing the Palestinian crowds to crush each other in an attempt to push through the gap. Egyptian guards yelled and pushed the scrambling people, treating them just as Zionists treat them in the apartheid Occupied Territories. This inhumane treatment did not improve in the passport processing terminal where Egyptian intelligence forces deliberately delayed the procedures and left Palestinians waiting for hours. In May 2020, the head of Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency traveled to Cairo to meet secretly with Egyptian officials, according to Israeli press reports. The meeting was supposedly geared to alerting Cairo about Netanyahu’s annexation plans for the West Bank - the plans were delayed but this serves to demonstrate the close intelligence and political ties between the two countries. The natural gas field alliance In 2021 Egypt’s Minister of Energy Tarek al-Molla traveled to Israel to meet with his Israeli counterpart, Yuval Steinitz, as well as with Prime Minister Netanyahu, to discuss a major collaborative project. From the ACDC report: Gas from Palestine’s large offshore Leviathan field in the eastern Mediterranean would be transported via a new pipeline on the seabed to connect with liquefication facilities in Egypt. Currently, gas from the Leviathan field is being sent to Egypt via a pipeline that runs to the Sinai Peninsula. The goal of this new project, according to an Israeli official, would be to use these facilities to export gas to Europe, where demand is rising. Undoubtedly, Israel sees this collaboration as a way of linking the Egyptian economy to Israel so that any future Egyptian leader would think twice about rolling back bilateral relations. From Egypt’s perspective, this deal fits into its plans to become a major regional hub for natural gas. In 2015, a large gas field, called Zohr, was discovered in Egyptian territorial waters in the Mediterranean, and Egypt has been the force behind the establishment of the “East Mediterranean Gas Forum” which includes Cyprus, Greece, Israel, Italy, Jordan, and the Palestinian Authority which is nothing more than a traitorous subordinate of the Zionist regime. The tourism incentive In early March 2021, Israeli Minister of Intelligence Eli Cohen met with Egypt’s Deputy Minister of Intelligence Nasser Fahmi in the coastal resort of Sharm el-Sheikh and said Egypt was doing “everything possible” to make the Sinai safe for Israeli tourists. Interestingly, Cohen was reportedly accompanied by 60 Israeli officials and businesspeople, indicating that both countries hope to boost tourism in the coming years. (ACDC) Again Egypt ensured scarce media coverage of the Cohen delegation. The risk of public backlash was still high with the Egyptian public sympathy consistently engrained in the Palestinian nationalist movement. Cohen was cited as saying: “Egypt is interested in promoting cooperation with Israel in all fields. We will continue to act to bolster economic and bilateral ties in the future.” Polling in 2020 conducted by the respected Zogby Research Services found some interesting data on Egyptian public attitudes toward Israel and the Palestinian issue. The question “How important is it that there be a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?” revealed that 79 percent of Egyptians thought it was “very important”; 15 percent said “somewhat important”; and only 6 percent said “somewhat unimportant or not important at all.” Concerning the question about the possibility of Israeli annexation of large parts of the West Bank, 75 percent of Egyptians believe that cooperation with Israel should come to an end if that were to occur. There are limits to how far Sisi can publicly go in collaborating with Israel and a more serious disconnect from the Arab Peace Initiative would incur domestic unrest. At the same time he must avoid any major confrontation with Israel to secure the strategic and economic projects that have ensured financial and political support from the Zionist lobby and supporters in the US. Sisi must also keep the US and EU on board to avoid prosecution for the human rights abuses conducted by his regime. It should however come as no surprise that, since October 7th, the Sisi regime has banned journalists from entering Gaza: Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said “any unilateral action” by Egypt as regards letting journalists into Gaza might be seen [by Israel] as “inappropriate” and might “have adverse consequences to other components” of the arrangement between Egypt and Israel, such as “the entry of assistance.” Cairo-based journalists confirmed that they had been told to request Israel’s agreement if they wanted to enter Gaza via the Egyptian Rafah border crossing. Those journalists who did seek Israel’s permission were refused entry. An audio recording of the response that an Israeli press spokesperson gave to a journalist who requested a permit to enter via Rafah. She said she could not issue permits for a crossing point that is not under Israeli control and, referring to what the Egyptians are telling journalists, she said: “I have the impression it’s just a pretext. I think they’re making you go round in circles.” Both regimes have an agenda of preventing international media coverage of the Zionist brutal genocide that has been ongoing for 9 months in Gaza. Israel is the driver of the blockade but Egypt is complicit in the deliberate news black-out which only serves to protect Israel from exposure as the terrorist entity it really is. In Part Three I will get to the non-state actors with close ties to the Sisi regime who control Sinai, mediate with Israel and secure monopoly deals to rebuild Gaza post 2021’s Zionist aggression. In further chapters I will also have a look at some of the organisations that publicly oppose Sisi’s normalisation-with-genocidal-Israel policy and examine who is really responsible for the humanitarian relief blockade on trucks entering Gaza through Rafah since October 7th, Israel or Egypt? **** Thank you for reading, listening, watching.

  • A Critical Look at a COVID-19 Vaccination Study: Clarity is Key
    July 7, 2024
    Uncategorized
    By Sarena L. McLean MSc. (Epidemiology & Biostatistics), Health Sciences Researcher & Member of Doctors for Covid Ethics (2021)

    The study “A Critical Analysis of All-Cause Deaths during COVID-19 Vaccination in an Italian Province” by Alessandria et al. aimed to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 vaccination on all-cause mortality while correcting for immortal time bias (ITB). Conducted in the Piedmont region of Italy, the study utilized a retrospective cohort design using a dataset from the Italian National Healthcare System, residents aged 10 and older, from January 1, 2021, to April 30, 2022 (Alessandria et al., p. 2). The authors aligned follow-up periods to ensure comparability between vaccinated and unvaccinated groups, dividing the cohort into groups based on vaccination status: unvaccinated, one dose, two doses, and three or four doses.

    The study found an increased risk of death associated with receiving one or two doses of the vaccine, with less clear results for three or four doses. Covariates analyzed included gender, age, hypertension, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cardiovascular disease, kidney diseases, cancer, and SARS-CoV-2 infection status. The authors used Cox proportional hazards models to estimate hazard ratios for all-cause mortality and employed Restricted Mean Survival Time (RMST) and Restricted Mean Time Lost (RMTL) for additional measures of survival and life expectancy (Alessandria et al., p. 4).

    1. Strengths of the Study

    The study used an innovative ITB correction, designed for accurate vaccination impact assessment. Additionally, the use of a large dataset from the Italian National Healthcare System provided a comprehensive dataset for analysis. Importantly, the authors chose to complete an all-cause mortality analysis versus examining COVID-19 death statistics, which are rife with misclassification errors. The all-cause mortality is not only more robust but also captures the impact from other indirect effects of COVID-19 such as delayed medical treatments.

    2. Areas for Improvement

    2.1. Overall Presentation

    The article requires clarity, and a few items are missing. For example, when beginning to read the abstract, the authors lay out the analysis problem in general, which is an excellent consideration. However, the authors would best help the reader orient themselves first by providing an overview or context. We know nothing about the work, so help us follow along with you. There is no clear research question, and all reviewers want to see clear hypotheses, objectives, and purpose. I struggled at first to understand the unstratified sample size. Do not make work for the reader is always good advice.

    There are many indications the authors were innovative and thorough in their approach and diligent in their process. Unfortunately, there were details and explanations missing that created a lot of questions during the review. It is challenging to discern if there are methodological or statistical analysis issues or are simply missing pieces of information creating a conversation about items that are already addressed and valid. The comments below are intended to demonstrate what arose in this review.

    2.2. Descriptive Statistics

    More detailed descriptive statistics are needed to provide context for the study population and their baseline characteristics. These statistics are vital for both lay readers and academics to understand the foundation of the investigation and provide essential information to assess both the statistical approach and interpret the findings. As a health science researcher, I am always looking for the measures of central tendency because I am interested in the distribution of these variables. Additionally, this item relates to the above point about unclear or missing details. The scientific method is predicated on the ability to replicate a study. We are unable to do that in this instance because the information is unclear. For example, I am assuming the authors chose not to provide details about vaccine manufacturers or types of vaccines for a substantial reason. However, there is no discussion about this. We are all challenged by word counts in publishing our work; yet some background and explanatory information is crucial.

    2.3. Covariates/Confounders

    Multicollinearity

    The study includes several covariates that may have the potential to cause multicollinearity issues. Age and sex are unlikely to present problems. Cancer and infection are only moderately correlated with other conditions, while hypertension and COPD, though more correlated with other comorbidities, are still manageable within the model. However, cardiovascular disease is highly correlated with multiple conditions, notably hypertension and diabetes, which can complicate the analysis. The most significant concerns are diabetes and kidney disease, which are strongly correlated with each other and with other chronic conditions. This high correlation, known as multicollinearity, which can severely impact the stability of the regression coefficients, making it difficult to determine the individual effect of each variable. For example, the study’s regression model might show a misleadingly high effect of vaccination on mortality if the true effect is confounded by the combined impact of diabetes and kidney disease, leading to unreliable results. I would have preferred to read the authors’ comments on the associations among their covariates briefly in prose or shown in a table.

    Limited Covariates

    The covariates were limited in this study. This is generally problematic, because it limits the ability to control for factors that can significantly influence health outcomes. Specifically from a social epidemiological perspective, missing covariates highly correlated with poor health outcomes, such as socio-economic status (SES), access to healthcare, and mental health status, can lead to residual confounding where we may miss the opportunity to see what is truly driving the relationship(s) resulting in poor outcomes (Alessandria et al., p. 4). Importantly, these same factors were directly impacted by COVID-19 response measures. For instance, individuals with lower SES often face greater barriers to healthcare access and may have challenging living conditions, which can increase their vulnerability and result in an increase in both the burden of disease, and mortality. The study did include clinical covariates such as chronic diseases like hypertension, diabetes, COPD, cardiovascular disease, kidney diseases, cancer, and SARS-CoV-2 infection status, but broader social determinants of health were overlooked (Alessandria et al., p. 4).

    Statistical Methods

    An early question about the model was the exclusion of deaths in the first 2-week time period after vaccination. For example, we know that cardiac death occurs in that time frame; thus, the omission of this time period could impact the results.

    It was unclear from the paper whether the authors examined and could assure readers that the data met the assumption criteria for the Cox model statistical analysis. The assumption required for a Cox model to be robust and valid is that the hazard ratios for the covariates must be constant over time (Alessandria et al., p. 5-6). Confirming this would be helpful for readers, as it would address concerns about the robustness of the statistical analysis. There is some information in the notes for Table 3, which do demonstrate the authors were addressing this issue along with a reference to the Schoenfeld’s test (Alessandria et al., p. 4). However, in my view, it remains unclear if the assumption is sufficiently addressed, particularly with respect to the confounders. By providing more comprehensive evidence of how the proportional hazards assumption was tested and addressed for each covariate (and confounders) including detailed plots or test statistics and explaining the stratification rationale would strengthen the study’s validity and address concerns effectively.

    If the proportional hazards assumption is violated in a Cox regression model, it can cause several problems. The estimates of the hazard ratios may be biased, meaning they do not accurately show the true relationship between the covariates and the risk of the event occurring. This can lead to incorrect statistical tests and confidence intervals, causing wrong conclusions about the effects of the covariates. In the context of the study by Alessandria et al., if this assumption is violated, it could compromise the validity of their findings about the impact of COVID-19 vaccination on all-cause mortality. The observed effects might be due to changes over time rather than a true relationship, leading to erroneous results.

    While Kaplan-Meier survival curves and a simplified Cox model do not directly address immortal time bias as comprehensively as the authors’ approach, these methods can be adjusted to partially mitigate ITB. Incorporating time-dependent covariates can help align risk periods correctly. As Tabachnick and Fidell (2013) explain, using time-dependent covariates within Cox regression can effectively handle violations of the proportional hazards assumption, providing more reliable results.

    The advanced and complex nature of the original analysis, combined with missing or unclear foundational information, such as the research question and descriptive statistics, makes it difficult to determine if the authors’ findings are robust. For example, when reviewing Table 3.0, the covariate ‘Infection’ with SARS-CoV-2 shows hazard ratios of less than 1 compared to the population without infection, which is curious. Amon subjects who had received a single dose, the HR was 0.58, which suggests that the SARS-CoV-2-infected group had 42% lower hazard or risk compared to the non-infected group. I did not find any outcomes listed in the paper that suggested a lower risk made sense given the outcomes referred to are death and COVID-19-related deaths (Alessandria et al., p. 3).

    Finally, an important suggestion is to clearly state what you are not going to do. It clears up any confusion and lays a boundary for why we do not venture into areas that are beyond the scope and resources we have in our work. Overall, it takes away a critique of the reviewers.

    3. Conclusion

    There could be valuable findings in this study, but the presentation is hindered by insufficient foundational information and very complex data analysis. Simplifying the methods and ensuring clarity in objectives and descriptive statistics would enhance the study’s reliability and accessibility. It would allow the reader to move beyond the initial information without so many questions. In this study, the investigators have been bold to embrace an untraditional statistical approach thus, to truly add to the body of literature, the detail is important. By embracing a more rigorous review process, we uphold the integrity of science and contribute to more reliable and impactful research.

    For the authors, consider revising the study to address these concerns and recirculate their work. It is innovative yet complex, so clarity is key. I give credit to the authors for stepping out boldly to address gaps in the research.

    Introduction by Fabio Giuseppe Carlo Carisio

    VERSIONE IN ITALIANO

    While in Italy and the European Union the shameful strategy of continuing the propaganda of Covid vaccines without the slightest concrete investigation into their safety continues to prevail, in the rest of the world, especially in the Anglo-Saxon world which was the first to support the need for Covid genetic sera although experimental (mRNA or mDNA messenger) there is now a real battle underway for the truth also shared by the judges.

    The magistrates who in the United Kingdom have put Big Pharma on trial for dead or damaged vaccinated people and in the USA have opened very heavy investigations into the pharmaceutical companies sponsored by Bill Gates who seems untouchable only by his friend the Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and her prize-winning President of the European Commission Ursula Von Der Leyen.

    What interests do Meloni and Von Der Leyen have in not shedding light on the now clear crimes of Big Pharma’s vaccines???

    Hundreds of Doctors and Scientists Sign Accord Calling for Suspension and Investigation of mRNA Vaccines

    Hundreds of doctors and scientists from around the world have signed an accord calling for the suspension and investigation of mRNA Covid vaccines due to serious concerns about their safety and efficacy.

    The statement, called the Hope Accord, was released this week and swiftly gained nearly 3,000 signatures. These included endorsements from over 200 doctors, 300 other healthcare professionals and over 100 scientists and academics, with all signatures being verified to ensure they are from real and qualified people.

    The statement, which also calls for recognition and support for the vaccine injured, addresses five key priorities:

    Immediate suspension of COVID-19 mRNA vaccine products: It says mRNA vaccine products should be suspended immediately due to a growing body of evidence suggesting a link between the vaccine rollout and alarming trends in disability and excess deaths.
    Comprehensive re-evaluation of COVID-19 vaccine safety and efficacy: It demands independent investigations to thoroughly reassess the safety and efficacy of all COVID-19 vaccine products, ensuring transparency and full disclosure of data.
    Recognition and support for the vaccine injured: The accord stresses the need to acknowledge and support individuals who have suffered vaccine-related injuries, providing them with the necessary medical care and compensation.
    Restoration of ethical principles abandoned during the COVID-19 era: It calls for a return to core medical ethics, including informed consent, bodily autonomy and the protection of children, all of which were compromised in the last few years.
    Addressing the root causes of the current predicament: The accord advocates an honest investigation into the factors that led to the current ethical and medical issues, including institutional groupthink, conflicts of interest and the suppression of scientific debate.
    The initiative grew out of the U.K. People’s Vaccine Inquiry, beginning life as a statement by members of Doctors for Patients U.K., including GP Dr. Ayiesha Malik, Surgeon Dr. James Royle and Cardiologist Dr. Dean Patterson. Emergency physician Dr. Tim Kelly saw the need for a broader international ethical statement and drew in supportive clinicians from the U.S., Canada, South Africa and Australia.

    In a press release, the organisers said the accord “calls on the medical community and policymakers to reassess the ethical breaches of recent years and ensure future health crises are managed with greater adherence to ethical principles and scientific integrity”.

    Healthcare professionals, scientists and concerned members of the public are invited to join the movement by adding their signature and support.

    Top heart doctor Aseem Malhotra has endorsed the statement in a video on X. Jordan Peterson has also backed the initiative, saying that while he doubts ethics can really be brought back to medicine, “these people are worth supporting”.

  • All of Gaza suffering under famine – Day 276
    [email protected] July 10, 2024
    RAFAH, GAZA - MARCH 24: Fadi Zant, aged 9, experiencing malnutrition, receives treatment after evacuated from the northern Gaza Strip to the IMC field hospital in Rafah, Gaza on March 24, 2024. The Gaza Strip is on the brink of famine as Israeli attacks on the area enters its sixth month. (Photo by Ali Jadallah/Anadolu via Getty Images)
    Famine everywhere now in Gaza; Palestinian detainees continue to report horrific torture; West Bank property for sale to American Jews; Lobby Watch: Avril Haines claims Iran is funding Gaza war protests; Archbishop of Canterbury weighs in on Gaza; Israeli violence all over West Bank; Netanyahu “deliberately complicates truce talks”; Israel runs low on ammo; more.

    By IAK staff, from reports.

    UN experts declare famine has spread throughout Gaza Strip

    UN: The recent deaths of more Palestinian children due to hunger and malnutrition leaves no doubt that famine has spread across the entire Gaza strip, a group of independent experts* said today.

    “Fayez Ataya, who was barely six months old, died on 30 May 2024 and 13-year-old Abdulqader Al-Serhi died on 1 June 2024 at the Al-Aqsa Hospital in Deir Al-Balah. Nine-year-old Ahmad Abu Reida died on 3 June 2024 in the tent sheltering his displaced family in Al-Mawasi, Khan Younis. All three children died from malnutrition and lack of access to adequate healthcare,” the experts said.

    “With the death of these children from starvation despite medical treatment in central Gaza, there is no doubt that famine has spread from northern Gaza into central and southern Gaza.”

    The experts said the death of a child from malnutrition and dehydration indicates that health and social structures have been attacked and are critically weakened. “When the first child dies from malnutrition and dehydration, it becomes irrefutable that famine has taken hold,” the experts said.

    “We declare that Israel’s intentional and targeted starvation campaign against the Palestinian people is a form of genocidal violence and has resulted in famine across all of Gaza. We call upon the international community to prioritise the delivery of humanitarian aid by land by any means necessary, end Israel’s siege, and establish a ceasefire.”

    “When a 2-month-old baby and 10-year-old Yazan Al Kafarneh died of hunger on 24 February and 4 March respectively, this confirmed that famine had struck northern Gaza. The whole world should have intervened earlier to stop Israel’s genocidal starvation campaign and prevented these deaths,” the experts said. “Thirty-four Palestinians have died from malnutrition since 7 October, the majority being children. Inaction is complicity.”





    Palestinian detainees subjected to abuse, humiliation in Israeli jails, says human rights organization

    WAFA reports: New testimonies sent by Physicians for Human Rights to the occupation prison authorities, calling on them to “put an end to the use of systematic violence against Palestinian detainees, reveal a pattern of severe violations practiced by prison guards against them.”

    The organization sent to the occupation authorities 14 testimonies collected during the last two months by lawyers who, on behalf of the organization, visited prisoners in the Katziot, Nafha, and Ramon prisons.

    Testimonies show a similar pattern of violence: “Assaults occur outside cells in areas where there are no surveillance cameras, and often occur while detainees go to the clinic, to visit lawyers, or to attend court sessions.”

    According to reports, “these acts of violence include serious physical assaults, severe bruising, sexual harassment and intimidation, in addition to other humiliating acts and various threats. In many cases, these violent attacks cause health, physical and psychological problems that last for long periods.”

    Palestinian emerges in harsh and shocking health condition after months in Israeli detention

    WAFA reports: Palestinian prisoner Ma’zuz Abayat Tuesday evening emerged in harsh and shocking health condition after serving months in Israeli detention, according to the Palestine Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

    PPS said in a press statement that Israeli occupation authorities released 37-year-old Abayat, a resident of Bethlehem, from the an-Naqab desert prison in very poor and shocking health condition after serving nine months under administrative detention.

    It added that during his term of imprisonment since October 2023, Abayat was subject to severe beating, particularly to the feet, and as well as to a series of torture, starvation and medical crimes, which manifested and evidenced in his appearance upon his release. Such torture, starvation and crimes have been the central reasons for the death of Palestinian prisoners after October 7.

    The first words Abayat uttered after his release was that he was “subjected to attempted murder” more than once, the PPS added.

    The companies making it easy to buy in a West Bank settlement

    The Intercept reports: In late June, a company called My Israel Home hosted an expo at a Los Angeles synagogue catering to a specific clientele: Jewish Americans looking to buy a new home in Israel — or on illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.

    Similar real estate fairs have popped up across North America this year, in places such as Montreal, Toronto, New Jersey, Baltimore, and Brooklyn, and several have faced protests as the war on Gaza has brought the issue of Israeli settlements and Palestinian sovereignty to the fore.

    An outbreak of violence at the LA event thrust the incident into the national spotlight. Protesters at the Adas Torah synagogue, who decried the sale of what they called “stolen land,” were met by pro-Israel counterprotesters on the West LA streets. Fights broke out among demonstrators, LA police said, while protesters reported being beaten by police with batons.

    The fracas was cast in the national media as an incident of violence at a place of worship, rather than a political protest at a corporate event, prompting political leaders from both parties, including President Joe Biden, to characterize the demonstration as antisemitic. The Justice Department said it is investigating the incident.

    But homebuyers interested in purchasing a property in the occupied West Bank have a more convenient option for making an offer: a simple scroll through online listings.

    On websites largely tailored for Jewish American buyers looking to move to Israel, prospective homeowners can browse properties that include listings for homes in settlement communities, which offer the typical trappings of suburban life.

    Archbishop of Canterbury condemns closure of al-Ahli hospital in Gaza City

    Large amounts of Israeli drone fire occurred in the hospital’s immediate vicinity on Sunday evening, and a statement issued by the Diocese of Jerusalem said the Anglican-run facility had been “compelled to close by the Israeli army”.


    West Bank – Israeli forces kill 13 year old near Ramallah

    WAFA reports: A thirteen-year-old child was killed today after being shot by Israeli forces’ gunfire in the town of Deir Abu Mash’al, in the Ramallah and al-Bireh Governorate.

    According to the Ministry of Health, the child, who was identified as Ghassan Gharib Zahran, succumbed to critical wounds he sustained after being shot by Israeli soldiers.

    West Bank – School built with international aid reportedly demolished

    A school for Palestinian children demolished by Israeli authorities in the occupied West Bank’s southern Hebron Hills was funded by a consortium of donor governments from Europe, the UK and Canada, according to reports.

    Commenting on the school demolition, Martin Konecny, director of the Brussels-based EuMEP (European Middle East Project) advocacy group, said the unwillingness of governments “to hold Israel to account is emboldening it to continue and accelerate these crimes”.

    Yehuda Shaul, co-director of Ofek – The Israeli Center for Public Affairs, said “international aid was not enough to stop the Israeli authorities” from destroying the school that had catered to 60 children from kindergarten to fourth grade.

    Netanyahu deliberately complicates truce talks ‘to wink at his political base’: Lapid

    Al Jazeera reports: Opposition leader Yair Lapid has told Israel’s 103FM radio that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu published a list of non-negotiable conditions for Israel to accept any ceasefire deal for his political games.

    “Unnecessary damage … it’s a complicated negotiation even without Netanyahu deliberately complicating it to wink at his political base,” Lapid said.

    His comments came a day after he reiterated to the Israeli prime minister that he would guarantee a parliamentary safety net should Netanyahu sign an agreement and therefore lose the support of two far-right ministers.

    National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir and Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich oppose any ceasefire deal.

    Israel’s munition shortage worsens as western states impose ‘informal boycott’

    Israeli business publication Calcalist reports: Israel’s Ministry of Defense and its military are concerned about the possibility of a shortage of ammunition after several countries have informally stopped trading with Israel. Major suppliers of raw materials for making bombs have also stopped selling these to Israel.

    The defense system’s solution to this boycott is the diversification of suppliers, the purchase ahead of time of a stock of raw materials that will be used in the future to make bombs, and the creation of huge reserves of raw materials in Israel.

    Since the outbreak of the war, more and more reports have been received about countries and companies wishing to reduce or limit defense trade with Israel. Among other things, a problem was reported in the supply of F-35 spare parts with Dutch suppliers; the governments of Italy, Canada and Belgium announced the cessation of defense exports to Israel; the Spanish government even prevented a ship carrying a shipment containing 27 tons of explosive material from India to Israel from docking on the country’s shores.

    On the other hand, Calcalist has also learned that Serbia has begun selling raw materials used by the Israeli defense industry.

    All in all, Israel is in a difficult situation in terms of ammunition, and is trying to conserve its supply in case of a flare-up on the Lebanon border.

    US citizen training Israeli military to operate drones injured near Lebanon border

    Al Jazeera reports: A US citizen injured by Hezbollah rocket fire in northern Israel was reportedly teaching Israeli reservists how to use drones, according to Israel’s Ynet news site.

    The 31-year-old employee of a drone company was “seriously injured” in the attack on the Western Galilee region of Israel on Sunday, Ynet added.

    According to the US CBS news, a spokesperson from the US State Department confirmed that an American civilian had been injured, but did not provide any further details.

    Lobby Watch: Avril Haines claims Iran is influencing and funding Gaza war protests

    WASHINGTON, DC – APRIL 15: Avril Haines, director of national intelligence, speaks during a House Intelligence Committee hearing on April 15, 2021 in Washington, D.C. The hearing follows the release of an unclassified report by the intelligence community detailing the U.S. and its allies will face “a diverse array of threats” in the coming year, with aggression by Russia, China and Iran. (Photo by Al Drago-Pool/Getty Images)

    Jewish Insider reports: “Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines said on Tuesday that the Iranian government has both provoked and provided funding for protests in the U.S. over the war in Gaza.

    “The statement doesn’t specifically say which protests have been influenced by Iranian actors, how much funding has been provided and for what purpose, when the influence operations began or what the viewpoints of the protesters in question have been.”

    Israel’s Jerusalem Post newspaper lists Haines number five in its 50 Most Influential Jews of 2021. Her “father once wrote in an account about a trip with Haines to Israel that she identifies as Jewish.” (Also here and here and here.)

    Haines has been accused of being involved in a number of controversial activities, including the extrajudicial killing of civilians, covering up hacking of Congress, covering up torture, being a member of “consulting firm WestExec (“They avoid becoming registered lobbyists or foreign agents and are instead becoming strategic consultants”), and promoting the Russian threat hoax.

    Israel and its partisans have long targeted Iran.

    Palestine Chronicle: War on Intellectuals – France Arrests Renowned Political Scientist for Gaza Solidarity



    STATISTICS OCTOBER 7 – JULY 9:

    Palestinian death toll from October 7 – July 9: at least 38,764* (38,193 in Gaza* – 11,445 women (30%), 15,747 children as of June 17. [The Ministry’s figures have been contested by the Israeli authorities, although they have been accepted as accurate by Israeli intelligence services, the UN, and WHO. These data are supported by independent analyses, comparing changes in the number of deaths of UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) staff with those reported by the Ministry, which found claims of data fabrication implausible.]

    This is expected to be a significant undercount since thousands of those killed have yet to be identified – and at least 572 in the West Bank (~137 children). This does not include an estimated 10,000 more still buried under rubble (4,900 women and children). Euro-Med Monitor reports 45,223 Palestinian deaths.

    Lancet: “Applying a conservative estimate of four indirect deaths per one direct death9 to the 37 396 deaths reported, it is not implausible to estimate that up to 186 000 or even more deaths could be attributable to the current conflict in Gaza.

    Ralph Nader earlier estimated 200,000 Palestinians may have been killed in Gaza.

    At least 46 Palestinians have died in Israeli prisons (27 from Gaza, 18 from West Bank).
    At least 40 Palestinians have died due to malnutrition**.
    About 1.7 million, or 75% of Gaza’s population are currently displaced.
    2.15 million (out of total population of 2.3 million) are projected to face Crisis or worse levels of food insecurity.
    Palestinian injuries from October 7 – July 9: at least 93,323 (including at least 87,903 in Gaza and 5,420 in the West Bank, including 830 children).

    [It remains unknown how many Americans are among the casualties in Gaza.]
    Reported Israeli death toll from October 7 – July 9: ~1,478 (~1,139 on October 7, 2023, of which ~32 were Americans, and ~36 were children); 324 military forces since the ground invasion began in Gaza; 16 in the West Bank) and~8,730 injured.

    Times of Israel reports: The IDF listed 41 soldiers killed due to friendly fire in Gaza and other military-related accidents – nearly 16%.

    NOTE: It is unknown at this time how many of the deaths and injuries in Israel on October 7 were caused by Israeli soldiers.

    *Previously, IAK did not include 471 Gazans killed in the Al Ahli hospital blast since the source of the projectile was being disputed. However, given that much evidence points to Israel as the culprit, Israel had previously bombed the hospital and has attacked many others, Israel is prohibiting outside experts from investigating the scene, and since the UN and other agencies are including the deaths from the attack in their cumulative totals, if Americans knew is now also doing so.**

    Euro-Med Monitor reports that Gaza’s elderly are dying at an alarmingly high rate. The majority die at home and are buried either close to their residences or in makeshift graves dispersed across the Strip. There are currently more than 140 such cemeteries. Additionally, according to Euromed, thousands have died from starvation, malnourishment, and inadequate medical care; these are considered indirect victims as they were not registered in hospitals.

    † For most of the conflict, women and children accounted for about 70% of deaths in Gaza, with children making up a little over 40% of those killed, according to official statistics.

    All of Gaza suffering under famine – Day 276 [email protected] July 10, 2024 RAFAH, GAZA - MARCH 24: Fadi Zant, aged 9, experiencing malnutrition, receives treatment after evacuated from the northern Gaza Strip to the IMC field hospital in Rafah, Gaza on March 24, 2024. The Gaza Strip is on the brink of famine as Israeli attacks on the area enters its sixth month.

By IAK staff, from reports. UN experts declare famine has spread throughout Gaza Strip UN: The recent deaths of more Palestinian children due to hunger and malnutrition leaves no doubt that famine has spread across the entire Gaza strip, a group of independent experts* said today. “Fayez Ataya, who was barely six months old, died on 30 May 2024 and 13-year-old Abdulqader Al-Serhi died on 1 June 2024 at the Al-Aqsa Hospital in Deir Al-Balah. Nine-year-old Ahmad Abu Reida died on 3 June 2024 in the tent sheltering his displaced family in Al-Mawasi, Khan Younis. All three children died from malnutrition and lack of access to adequate healthcare,” the experts said. “With the death of these children from starvation despite medical treatment in central Gaza, there is no doubt that famine has spread from northern Gaza into central and southern Gaza.” The experts said the death of a child from malnutrition and dehydration indicates that health and social structures have been attacked and are critically weakened. “When the first child dies from malnutrition and dehydration, it becomes irrefutable that famine has taken hold,” the experts said. “We declare that Israel’s intentional and targeted starvation campaign against the Palestinian people is a form of genocidal violence and has resulted in famine across all of Gaza. We call upon the international community to prioritise the delivery of humanitarian aid by land by any means necessary, end Israel’s siege, and establish a ceasefire.” “When a 2-month-old baby and 10-year-old Yazan Al Kafarneh died of hunger on 24 February and 4 March respectively, this confirmed that famine had struck northern Gaza. The whole world should have intervened earlier to stop Israel’s genocidal starvation campaign and prevented these deaths,” the experts said. “Thirty-four Palestinians have died from malnutrition since 7 October, the majority being children. Inaction is complicity.” Palestinian detainees subjected to abuse, humiliation in Israeli jails, says human rights organization WAFA reports: New testimonies sent by Physicians for Human Rights to the occupation prison authorities, calling on them to “put an end to the use of systematic violence against Palestinian detainees, reveal a pattern of severe violations practiced by prison guards against them.” The organization sent to the occupation authorities 14 testimonies collected during the last two months by lawyers who, on behalf of the organization, visited prisoners in the Katziot, Nafha, and Ramon prisons. Testimonies show a similar pattern of violence: “Assaults occur outside cells in areas where there are no surveillance cameras, and often occur while detainees go to the clinic, to visit lawyers, or to attend court sessions.” According to reports, “these acts of violence include serious physical assaults, severe bruising, sexual harassment and intimidation, in addition to other humiliating acts and various threats. In many cases, these violent attacks cause health, physical and psychological problems that last for long periods.” Embed from Getty Images KHAN YUNIS, GAZA – JUNE 25: Palestinian prisoner Rami Abu Mustafa, arrested by Israeli forces during operation in Khan Yunis months ago, receives medical treatment at Gaza European Hospital, Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip on June 25, 2024.

PPS said in a press statement that Israeli occupation authorities released 37-year-old Abayat, a resident of Bethlehem, from the an-Naqab desert prison in very poor and shocking health condition after serving nine months under administrative detention. It added that during his term of imprisonment since October 2023, Abayat was subject to severe beating, particularly to the feet, and as well as to a series of torture, starvation and medical crimes, which manifested and evidenced in his appearance upon his release. Such torture, starvation and crimes have been the central reasons for the death of Palestinian prisoners after October 7. The first words Abayat uttered after his release was that he was “subjected to attempted murder” more than once, the PPS added.

Similar real estate fairs have popped up across North America this year, in places such as Montreal, Toronto, New Jersey, Baltimore, and Brooklyn, and several have faced protests as the war on Gaza has brought the issue of Israeli settlements and Palestinian sovereignty to the fore. An outbreak of violence at the LA event thrust the incident into the national spotlight. Protesters at the Adas Torah synagogue, who decried the sale of what they called “stolen land,” were met by pro-Israel counterprotesters on the West LA streets. Fights broke out among demonstrators, LA police said, while protesters reported being beaten by police with batons. The fracas was cast in the national media as an incident of violence at a place of worship, rather than a political protest at a corporate event, prompting political leaders from both parties, including President Joe Biden, to characterize the demonstration as antisemitic. The Justice Department said it is investigating the incident. But homebuyers interested in purchasing a property in the occupied West Bank have a more convenient option for making an offer: a simple scroll through online listings. On websites largely tailored for Jewish American buyers looking to move to Israel, prospective homeowners can browse properties that include listings for homes in settlement communities, which offer the typical trappings of suburban life.

West Bank – School built with international aid reportedly demolished A school for Palestinian children demolished by Israeli authorities in the occupied West Bank’s southern Hebron Hills was funded by a consortium of donor governments from Europe, the UK and Canada, according to reports. Commenting on the school demolition, Martin Konecny, director of the Brussels-based EuMEP (European Middle East Project) advocacy group, said the unwillingness of governments “to hold Israel to account is emboldening it to continue and accelerate these crimes”. Yehuda Shaul, co-director of Ofek – The Israeli Center for Public Affairs, said “international aid was not enough to stop the Israeli authorities” from destroying the school that had catered to 60 children from kindergarten to fourth grade.

His comments came a day after he reiterated to the Israeli prime minister that he would guarantee a parliamentary safety net should Netanyahu sign an agreement and therefore lose the support of two far-right ministers. National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir and Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich oppose any ceasefire deal. Israel’s munition shortage worsens as western states impose ‘informal boycott’ Israeli business publication Calcalist reports: Israel’s Ministry of Defense and its military are concerned about the possibility of a shortage of ammunition after several countries have informally stopped trading with Israel. Major suppliers of raw materials for making bombs have also stopped selling these to Israel. The defense system’s solution to this boycott is the diversification of suppliers, the purchase ahead of time of a stock of raw materials that will be used in the future to make bombs, and the creation of huge reserves of raw materials in Israel. Since the outbreak of the war, more and more reports have been received about countries and companies wishing to reduce or limit defense trade with Israel. Among other things, a problem was reported in the supply of F-35 spare parts with Dutch suppliers; the governments of Italy, Canada and Belgium announced the cessation of defense exports to Israel; the Spanish government even prevented a ship carrying a shipment containing 27 tons of explosive material from India to Israel from docking on the country’s shores. On the other hand, Calcalist has also learned that Serbia has begun selling raw materials used by the Israeli defense industry. All in all, Israel is in a difficult situation in terms of ammunition, and is trying to conserve its supply in case of a flare-up on the Lebanon border. US citizen training Israeli military to operate drones injured near Lebanon border Al Jazeera reports: A US citizen injured by Hezbollah rocket fire in northern Israel was reportedly teaching Israeli reservists how to use drones, according to Israel’s Ynet news site.

According to the US CBS news, a spokesperson from the US State Department confirmed that an American civilian had been injured, but did not provide any further details. Lobby Watch: Avril Haines claims Iran is influencing and funding Gaza war protests Embed from Getty Images WASHINGTON, DC – APRIL 15: Avril Haines, director of national intelligence, speaks during a House Intelligence Committee hearing on April 15, 2021 in Washington, D.C. The hearing follows the release of an unclassified report by the intelligence community detailing the U.S. and its allies will face “a diverse array of threats” in the coming year, with aggression by Russia, China and Iran. (Photo by Al Drago-Pool/Getty Images) Jewish Insider reports: “Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines said on Tuesday that the Iranian government has both provoked and provided funding for protests in the U.S. over the war in Gaza. “The statement doesn’t specifically say which protests have been influenced by Iranian actors, how much funding has been provided and for what purpose, when the influence operations began or what the viewpoints of the protesters in question have been.” Israel’s Jerusalem Post newspaper lists Haines number five in its 50 Most Influential Jews of 2021. Her “father once wrote in an account about a trip with Haines to Israel that she identifies as Jewish.” (Also here and here and here.) Haines has been accused of being involved in a number of controversial activities, including the extrajudicial killing of civilians, covering up hacking of Congress, covering up torture, being a member of “consulting firm WestExec (“They avoid becoming registered lobbyists or foreign agents and are instead becoming strategic consultants”), and promoting the Russian threat hoax.

These data are supported by independent analyses, comparing changes in the number of deaths of UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) staff with those reported by the Ministry, which found claims of data fabrication implausible.] This is expected to be a significant undercount since thousands of those killed have yet to be identified – and at least 572 in the West Bank (~137 children). This does not include an estimated 10,000 more still buried under rubble (4,900 women and children). Euro-Med Monitor reports 45,223 Palestinian deaths.

The majority die at home and are buried either close to their residences or in makeshift graves dispersed across the Strip. There are currently more than 140 such cemeteries. Additionally, according to Euromed, thousands have died from starvation, malnourishment, and inadequate medical care; these are considered indirect victims as they were not registered in hospitals. † For most of the conflict, women and children accounted for about 70% of deaths in Gaza, with children making up a little over 40% of those killed, according to official statistics.

  • A Critical Look at a COVID-19 Vaccination Study: Clarity is Key
    July 7, 2024
    Uncategorized
    By Sarena L. McLean MSc. (Epidemiology & Biostatistics), Health Sciences Researcher & Member of Doctors for Covid Ethics (2021)

    The study “A Critical Analysis of All-Cause Deaths during COVID-19 Vaccination in an Italian Province” by Alessandria et al. aimed to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 vaccination on all-cause mortality while correcting for immortal time bias (ITB). Conducted in the Piedmont region of Italy, the study utilized a retrospective cohort design using a dataset from the Italian National Healthcare System, residents aged 10 and older, from January 1, 2021, to April 30, 2022 (Alessandria et al., p. 2). The authors aligned follow-up periods to ensure comparability between vaccinated and unvaccinated groups, dividing the cohort into groups based on vaccination status: unvaccinated, one dose, two doses, and three or four doses.

    The study found an increased risk of death associated with receiving one or two doses of the vaccine, with less clear results for three or four doses. Covariates analyzed included gender, age, hypertension, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cardiovascular disease, kidney diseases, cancer, and SARS-CoV-2 infection status. The authors used Cox proportional hazards models to estimate hazard ratios for all-cause mortality and employed Restricted Mean Survival Time (RMST) and Restricted Mean Time Lost (RMTL) for additional measures of survival and life expectancy (Alessandria et al., p. 4).

    1. Strengths of the Study

    The study used an innovative ITB correction, designed for accurate vaccination impact assessment. Additionally, the use of a large dataset from the Italian National Healthcare System provided a comprehensive dataset for analysis. Importantly, the authors chose to complete an all-cause mortality analysis versus examining COVID-19 death statistics, which are rife with misclassification errors. The all-cause mortality is not only more robust but also captures the impact from other indirect effects of COVID-19 such as delayed medical treatments.

    2. Areas for Improvement

    2.1. Overall Presentation

    The article requires clarity, and a few items are missing. For example, when beginning to read the abstract, the authors lay out the analysis problem in general, which is an excellent consideration. However, the authors would best help the reader orient themselves first by providing an overview or context. We know nothing about the work, so help us follow along with you. There is no clear research question, and all reviewers want to see clear hypotheses, objectives, and purpose. I struggled at first to understand the unstratified sample size. Do not make work for the reader is always good advice.

    There are many indications the authors were innovative and thorough in their approach and diligent in their process. Unfortunately, there were details and explanations missing that created a lot of questions during the review. It is challenging to discern if there are methodological or statistical analysis issues or are simply missing pieces of information creating a conversation about items that are already addressed and valid. The comments below are intended to demonstrate what arose in this review.

    2.2. Descriptive Statistics

    More detailed descriptive statistics are needed to provide context for the study population and their baseline characteristics. These statistics are vital for both lay readers and academics to understand the foundation of the investigation and provide essential information to assess both the statistical approach and interpret the findings. As a health science researcher, I am always looking for the measures of central tendency because I am interested in the distribution of these variables. Additionally, this item relates to the above point about unclear or missing details. The scientific method is predicated on the ability to replicate a study. We are unable to do that in this instance because the information is unclear. For example, I am assuming the authors chose not to provide details about vaccine manufacturers or types of vaccines for a substantial reason. However, there is no discussion about this. We are all challenged by word counts in publishing our work; yet some background and explanatory information is crucial.

    2.3. Covariates/Confounders

    Multicollinearity

    The study includes several covariates that may have the potential to cause multicollinearity issues. Age and sex are unlikely to present problems. Cancer and infection are only moderately correlated with other conditions, while hypertension and COPD, though more correlated with other comorbidities, are still manageable within the model. However, cardiovascular disease is highly correlated with multiple conditions, notably hypertension and diabetes, which can complicate the analysis. The most significant concerns are diabetes and kidney disease, which are strongly correlated with each other and with other chronic conditions. This high correlation, known as multicollinearity, which can severely impact the stability of the regression coefficients, making it difficult to determine the individual effect of each variable. For example, the study’s regression model might show a misleadingly high effect of vaccination on mortality if the true effect is confounded by the combined impact of diabetes and kidney disease, leading to unreliable results. I would have preferred to read the authors’ comments on the associations among their covariates briefly in prose or shown in a table.

    Limited Covariates

    The covariates were limited in this study. This is generally problematic, because it limits the ability to control for factors that can significantly influence health outcomes. Specifically from a social epidemiological perspective, missing covariates highly correlated with poor health outcomes, such as socio-economic status (SES), access to healthcare, and mental health status, can lead to residual confounding where we may miss the opportunity to see what is truly driving the relationship(s) resulting in poor outcomes (Alessandria et al., p. 4). Importantly, these same factors were directly impacted by COVID-19 response measures. For instance, individuals with lower SES often face greater barriers to healthcare access and may have challenging living conditions, which can increase their vulnerability and result in an increase in both the burden of disease, and mortality. The study did include clinical covariates such as chronic diseases like hypertension, diabetes, COPD, cardiovascular disease, kidney diseases, cancer, and SARS-CoV-2 infection status, but broader social determinants of health were overlooked (Alessandria et al., p. 4).

    Statistical Methods

    An early question about the model was the exclusion of deaths in the first 2-week time period after vaccination. For example, we know that cardiac death occurs in that time frame; thus, the omission of this time period could impact the results.

    It was unclear from the paper whether the authors examined and could assure readers that the data met the assumption criteria for the Cox model statistical analysis. The assumption required for a Cox model to be robust and valid is that the hazard ratios for the covariates must be constant over time (Alessandria et al., p. 5-6). Confirming this would be helpful for readers, as it would address concerns about the robustness of the statistical analysis. There is some information in the notes for Table 3, which do demonstrate the authors were addressing this issue along with a reference to the Schoenfeld’s test (Alessandria et al., p. 4). However, in my view, it remains unclear if the assumption is sufficiently addressed, particularly with respect to the confounders. By providing more comprehensive evidence of how the proportional hazards assumption was tested and addressed for each covariate (and confounders) including detailed plots or test statistics and explaining the stratification rationale would strengthen the study’s validity and address concerns effectively.

    If the proportional hazards assumption is violated in a Cox regression model, it can cause several problems. The estimates of the hazard ratios may be biased, meaning they do not accurately show the true relationship between the covariates and the risk of the event occurring. This can lead to incorrect statistical tests and confidence intervals, causing wrong conclusions about the effects of the covariates. In the context of the study by Alessandria et al., if this assumption is violated, it could compromise the validity of their findings about the impact of COVID-19 vaccination on all-cause mortality. The observed effects might be due to changes over time rather than a true relationship, leading to erroneous results.

    While Kaplan-Meier survival curves and a simplified Cox model do not directly address immortal time bias as comprehensively as the authors’ approach, these methods can be adjusted to partially mitigate ITB. Incorporating time-dependent covariates can help align risk periods correctly. As Tabachnick and Fidell (2013) explain, using time-dependent covariates within Cox regression can effectively handle violations of the proportional hazards assumption, providing more reliable results.

    The advanced and complex nature of the original analysis, combined with missing or unclear foundational information, such as the research question and descriptive statistics, makes it difficult to determine if the authors’ findings are robust. For example, when reviewing Table 3.0, the covariate ‘Infection’ with SARS-CoV-2 shows hazard ratios of less than 1 compared to the population without infection, which is curious. Amon subjects who had received a single dose, the HR was 0.58, which suggests that the SARS-CoV-2-infected group had 42% lower hazard or risk compared to the non-infected group. I did not find any outcomes listed in the paper that suggested a lower risk made sense given the outcomes referred to are death and COVID-19-related deaths (Alessandria et al., p. 3).

    Finally, an important suggestion is to clearly state what you are not going to do. It clears up any confusion and lays a boundary for why we do not venture into areas that are beyond the scope and resources we have in our work. Overall, it takes away a critique of the reviewers.

    3. Conclusion

    There could be valuable findings in this study, but the presentation is hindered by insufficient foundational information and very complex data analysis. Simplifying the methods and ensuring clarity in objectives and descriptive statistics would enhance the study’s reliability and accessibility. It would allow the reader to move beyond the initial information without so many questions. In this study, the investigators have been bold to embrace an untraditional statistical approach thus, to truly add to the body of literature, the detail is important. By embracing a more rigorous review process, we uphold the integrity of science and contribute to more reliable and impactful research.

    For the authors, consider revising the study to address these concerns and recirculate their work. It is innovative yet complex, so clarity is key. I give credit to the authors for stepping out boldly to address gaps in the research.

However, the authors would best help the reader orient themselves first by providing an overview or context. We know nothing about the work, so help us follow along with you. There is no clear research question, and all reviewers want to see clear hypotheses, objectives, and purpose. I struggled at first to understand the unstratified sample size. Do not make work for the reader is always good advice. There are many indications the authors were innovative and thorough in their approach and diligent in their process. Unfortunately, there were details and explanations missing that created a lot of questions during the review. It is challenging to discern if there are methodological or statistical analysis issues or are simply missing pieces of information creating a conversation about items that are already addressed and valid. The comments below are intended to demonstrate what arose in this review. 2.2. Descriptive Statistics More detailed descriptive statistics are needed to provide context for the study population and their baseline characteristics. These statistics are vital for both lay readers and academics to understand the foundation of the investigation and provide essential information to assess both the statistical approach and interpret the findings. As a health science researcher, I am always looking for the measures of central tendency because I am interested in the distribution of these variables. Additionally, this item relates to the above point about unclear or missing details. The scientific method is predicated on the ability to replicate a study. We are unable to do that in this instance because the information is unclear. For example, I am assuming the authors chose not to provide details about vaccine manufacturers or types of vaccines for a substantial reason. However, there is no discussion about this. We are all challenged by word counts in publishing our work; yet some background and explanatory information is crucial. 2.3. Covariates/Confounders Multicollinearity The study includes several covariates that may have the potential to cause multicollinearity issues. Age and sex are unlikely to present problems. Cancer and infection are only moderately correlated with other conditions, while hypertension and COPD, though more correlated with other comorbidities, are still manageable within the model. However, cardiovascular disease is highly correlated with multiple conditions, notably hypertension and diabetes, which can complicate the analysis. The most significant concerns are diabetes and kidney disease, which are strongly correlated with each other and with other chronic conditions. This high correlation, known as multicollinearity, which can severely impact the stability of the regression coefficients, making it difficult to determine the individual effect of each variable. For example, the study’s regression model might show a misleadingly high effect of vaccination on mortality if the true effect is confounded by the combined impact of diabetes and kidney disease, leading to unreliable results. I would have preferred to read the authors’ comments on the associations among their covariates briefly in prose or shown in a table. Limited Covariates The covariates were limited in this study. This is generally problematic, because it limits the ability to control for factors that can significantly influence health outcomes. Specifically from a social epidemiological perspective, missing covariates highly correlated with poor health outcomes, such as socio-economic status (SES), access to healthcare, and mental health status, can lead to residual confounding where we may miss the opportunity to see what is truly driving the relationship(s) resulting in poor outcomes (Alessandria et al., p. 4). Importantly, these same factors were directly impacted by COVID-19 response measures. For instance, individuals with lower SES often face greater barriers to healthcare access and may have challenging living conditions, which can increase their vulnerability and result in an increase in both the burden of disease, and mortality. The study did include clinical covariates such as chronic diseases like hypertension, diabetes, COPD, cardiovascular disease, kidney diseases, cancer, and SARS-CoV-2 infection status, but broader social determinants of health were overlooked (Alessandria et al., p. 4). Statistical Methods An early question about the model was the exclusion of deaths in the first 2-week time period after vaccination. For example, we know that cardiac death occurs in that time frame; thus, the omission of this time period could impact the results. It was unclear from the paper whether the authors examined and could assure readers that the data met the assumption criteria for the Cox model statistical analysis. The assumption required for a Cox model to be robust and valid is that the hazard ratios for the covariates must be constant over time (Alessandria et al., p. 5-6). Confirming this would be helpful for readers, as it would address concerns about the robustness of the statistical analysis. There is some information in the notes for Table 3, which do demonstrate the authors were addressing this issue along with a reference to the Schoenfeld’s test (Alessandria et al., p. 4). However, in my view, it remains unclear if the assumption is sufficiently addressed, particularly with respect to the confounders. By providing more comprehensive evidence of how the proportional hazards assumption was tested and addressed for each covariate (and confounders) including detailed plots or test statistics and explaining the stratification rationale would strengthen the study’s validity and address concerns effectively. If the proportional hazards assumption is violated in a Cox regression model, it can cause several problems. The estimates of the hazard ratios may be biased, meaning they do not accurately show the true relationship between the covariates and the risk of the event occurring. This can lead to incorrect statistical tests and confidence intervals, causing wrong conclusions about the effects of the covariates. In the context of the study by Alessandria et al., if this assumption is violated, it could compromise the validity of their findings about the impact of COVID-19 vaccination on all-cause mortality. The observed effects might be due to changes over time rather than a true relationship, leading to erroneous results. While Kaplan-Meier survival curves and a simplified Cox model do not directly address immortal time bias as comprehensively as the authors’ approach, these methods can be adjusted to partially mitigate ITB. Incorporating time-dependent covariates can help align risk periods correctly. As Tabachnick and Fidell (2013) explain, using time-dependent covariates within Cox regression can effectively handle violations of the proportional hazards assumption, providing more reliable results. The advanced and complex nature of the original analysis, combined with missing or unclear foundational information, such as the research question and descriptive statistics, makes it difficult to determine if the authors’ findings are robust. For example, when reviewing Table 3.0, the covariate ‘Infection’ with SARS-CoV-2 shows hazard ratios of less than 1 compared to the population without infection, which is curious. Amon subjects who had received a single dose, the HR was 0.58, which suggests that the SARS-CoV-2-infected group had 42% lower hazard or risk compared to the non-infected group. I did not find any outcomes listed in the paper that suggested a lower risk made sense given the outcomes referred to are death and COVID-19-related deaths (Alessandria et al., p. 3). Finally, an important suggestion is to clearly state what you are not going to do. It clears up any confusion and lays a boundary for why we do not venture into areas that are beyond the scope and resources we have in our work. Overall, it takes away a critique of the reviewers. 3. Conclusion There could be valuable findings in this study, but the presentation is hindered by insufficient foundational information and very complex data analysis. Simplifying the methods and ensuring clarity in objectives and descriptive statistics would enhance the study’s reliability and accessibility. It would allow the reader to move beyond the initial information without so many questions. In this study, the investigators have been bold to embrace an untraditional statistical approach thus, to truly add to the body of literature, the detail is important. By embracing a more rigorous review process, we uphold the integrity of science and contribute to more reliable and impactful research. For the authors, consider revising the study to address these concerns and recirculate their work. It is innovative yet complex, so clarity is key. I give credit to the authors for stepping out boldly to address gaps in the research. 4. References Alessandria, M. et al.

  • Update – Russian MOD VIDEO on First UKRAINIAN CHEMICAL LAB for TOXIC WEAPONS found during Special Operation
    Fabio G. C. CarisioJuly 9, 2024

    VT Condemns the ETHNIC CLEANSING OF PALESTINIANS by USA/Israel

    $ 280 BILLION US TAXPAYER DOLLARS INVESTED since 1948 in US/Israeli Ethnic Cleansing and Occupation Operation; $ 150B direct "aid" and $ 130B in "Offense" contracts

    Watch Official VIDEO released by Russia Ministry of Defense

    The Russian Defense Ministry has released footage of military personnel inspecting what it says is a Ukrainian makeshift laboratory used to produce dangerous substances that can potentially be used as chemical weapons. Moscow previously insisted that it found evidence of Kiev violating the Chemical Weapons Convention.

    On Monday, Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, who leads Russia’s chemical and biological defense forces, said that the facility was discovered near the town of Avdeevka in the Donetsk People’s Republic. The town was liberated by the Russian forces in February.

    According to Kirillov, traces of sulfuric acid and sodium cyanide as well as cyanide anions – poisonous chemical compounds of the cyano group – were found at the site. Sulfuric acid and sodium cyanide can be used to produce hydrogen cyanide – a highly toxic agent that was used as a chemical weapon during World War I.

    Footage released by the military shows a serviceman wearing a hazmat suit and a gas mask collecting samples from various pieces of equipment and containers. He examines a glass jar containing what looks like a yellowish solid substance. A large piece of equipment that appears to be a chemical reactor is also seen in the video.

    The Russian serviceman in the video is using a portable chemical analyzer. The clip goes on to show the collected samples arriving at a Russian military site.According to the Defense Ministry, the laboratory was located in a partially destroyed building filled with debris, and had a large number of empty containers inside.

    In recent days the head of the Russian radiation, chemical and biological agent protection troops, Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, spoke before the 106th session of the OPCW Executive Council to report on this discovered Ukrainian army chemical weapons laboratory near Avdeyevka and numerous cases of chloropicrin use from Ukraine near Donetsk, Gorlovka and Artyomovsk.

    Gospa News Internastional has released the complete text of Kirillov’s briefing who previously denounced the discovery of the 12 laboratories created by the US Pentagon in Ukraine for the testing of very dangerous bacteriological weapons. Including Covid-19, studied 3 months before the first outbreak was discovered in Wuhan…

    ABSTRACT OF KIRILLOV BRIEFING

    «A laboratory with chemical equipment was detected in an industrial zone on the ground floor of a destroyed building in one of the settlements near Avdeyevka during engineering reconnaissance. A mobile diagnostic team of Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological Protection Troops of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation was sent to inspect the premises and conduct a rapid analysis» reported the official stament.


    Chief of Russia’s Radiation, Chemical and Biological Protection Troops Lieutenant-General Igor Kirillov
    According to Kirillov, they found a semi-industrial rotary evaporator, a filtering exhaust system, chemical reactors, carbon dioxide bottles, and shelving systems with laboratory dishes and reagents in the laboratory. Also found were personal respiratory and skin protection kits: gas masks, including US-made ones and a Polish-made protective suit.

    An analysis of the lab’s containers showed the presence of sulphuric acid and sodium cyanide, suggesting that the found equipment was used for the production of toxic substances. Afterward, wipe sampling from the laboratory equipment and exhaust system was made in accordance with the requirements of the OPCW and the samples were delivered to the chemical analysis laboratory of the Russian Defense Ministry for in-depth analysis.

    Analytical studies in the laboratory showed the presence of sodium cyanide, sulphuric acid, and trace amounts of cyanide anions in the samples. The presence of these chemicals clearly indicates that the found laboratory was producing systemic toxic agents.

    During the special military operation, there were multiples cases of use by Ukraine of improvised munitions that were loaded with said substance and dropped from UAVs. The use of toxic chemicals, including prussic acid, by the Kiev regime is confirmed by numerous accounts of witnesses: civilians and Russian servicemen.

    We have already drawn your attention to a statement by representatives of the Armed Forces of Ukraine that they have such compounds in their possession, including the analogues of the Tabun, or GA, warfare agent, which is included in Schedule 1 of the Convention and was used by fascist invaders during the Second World War.

    Ukrainian military units use toxic compounds not only in the course of combat operations, but also to carry out terrorist attacks in liberated territories against some Russian political figures.
