US COVID Deaths In 2021 Have Surpassed 2020’s Total… Despite Vaccines, Treatments | Tyler Durden | ZeroHedge.com

COVID-19 has killed more people in 2021 than 2020.

The virus was reported as the underlying cause of death (or a contributing cause of death) for an estimated 377,883 people in 2020, accounting for 11.3% of deaths, according to the CDC. As of Monday, more than 770,000 people have died from the coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University data. That means over 15,000 more people have died in 2021 than last year from COVID-19 – and there’s still more than a month left.

This has happened despite the fact that last year no Americans were vaccinated (now 59% of all eligible Americans have had the “life-saving” jab) and some 17% have received booster shots…

The 2021 U.S. death toll caught some doctors by surprise. They had expected vaccinations and precautionary measures like social distancing and scaled-down public events to curb the spread of infections and minimize severe cases. But, The Wall Street Journal has its own explanation, suggesting lower-than-expected immunization rates as well as fatigue with precautionary measures like masks allowed the highly contagious Delta variant to spread, largely among the unvaccinated, epidemiologists say.

Among missteps, Dr. Abraar Karan, an infectious-diseases doctor at Stanford University, said, public-health officials failed to effectively communicate that the purpose of vaccines is to protect against severe cases of Covid-19 rather than to prevent the spread of infection entirely, which may have led some to doubt the effectiveness of the shots.

Jury Holds Walmart, CVS, Walgreens Responsible for Role in Opioid Crisis | by Associated Press | ArkansasBusiness.com

The retail pharmacy chains were found to have recklessly distributed massive amounts of pain pills.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Three retail pharmacy chains recklessly distributed massive amounts of pain pills in two Ohio counties, a federal jury said Tuesday in a verdict that could set the tone for U.S. city and county governments that want to hold pharmacies accountable for their roles in the opioid crisis.

The counties blamed pharmacies operated by CVS, Walgreens and Walmart for not stopping the flood of pills that caused hundreds of overdose deaths and cost each of the two counties about $1 billion, their attorney said.

This was the first time pharmacy companies had completed a trial to defend themselves in a drug crisis that has killed a half-million Americans over the past two decades. How much the pharmacies must pay in damages will be decided in the spring by federal judge.

Lake and Trumbull counties were able to convince the jury that the pharmacies played an outsized role in creating a public nuisance in the way they dispensed pain medication into their communities.

Attorneys for the three pharmacy chains maintained they had policies to stem the flow of pills when their pharmacists had any concerns and would notify authorities about suspicious orders from doctors.

They also said it was the doctors who controlled how many pills were being prescribed for legitimate medical needs.

Walmart said in a statement that it will appeal the verdict, which it called a “reflection of a trial that was engineered to favor the plaintiffs’ attorneys and was riddled with remarkable legal and factual mistakes.” The company said the verdict is “out of step” with courts in at least a half dozen other states that have rejected the “public nuisance” liability argument brought by the plaintiffs.

“Plaintiffs’ attorneys sued Walmart in search of deep pockets while ignoring the real causes of the opioid crisis—such as pill mill doctors, illegal drugs, and regulators asleep at the switch—and they wrongly claimed pharmacists must second-guess doctors in a way the law never intended and many federal and state health regulators say interferes with the doctor-patient relationship,” the statement says.

Walmart also accused a juror of violating court rules by conducting her own research and sharing it with other jurors.

Two other chains — Rite Aid and Giant Eagle — already have settled lawsuits with the two Ohio counties.

Attorney Mark Lanier, who represented the counties in the lawsuit, said during the trial that the pharmacies were attempting to blame everyone but themselves.

The opioid crisis has overwhelmed courts, social services agencies and law enforcement in Ohio’s blue-collar corner east of Cleveland, leaving behind heartbroken families and babies born to addicted mothers, Lanier told jurors.

Roughly 80 million prescription painkillers were dispensed in Trumbull County alone between 2012 and 2016 — equivalent to 400 for every resident.

In Lake County, some 61 million pills were distributed during that period.

The rise in physicians prescribing pain medications such as oxycodone and hydrocodone came at a time when medical groups began recognizing that patients have the right to be treated for pain, Kaspar Stoffelmayr, an attorney for Walgreens, said at the opening of the trial.

The problem, he said, was that “pharmaceutical manufacturers tricked doctors into writing way too many pills.”

The counties said pharmacies should be the last line of defense to prevent the pills from getting into the wrong hands.

They didn’t hire enough pharmacists and technicians or train them to stop that from happening and failed to implement systems that could flag suspicious orders, Lanier said.

The trial before U.S. District Judge Dan Polster in Cleveland was part of a broader constellation of federal opioid lawsuits — about 3,000 in all — that have been consolidated under the judge’s supervision. Other cases are moving ahead in state courts.

It was one of five trials so far this year in the U.S. to test claims brought by governments against parts of the drug industry over the toll of prescription painkillers.

A Judge Stands up to a Hospital: “Step Aside” and Give a Dying Man Ivermectin | RESCUE with Michael Capuzzo | Rescue.Substack.com

A Chicago-area judge saved a grandfather’s life with the single question that exposes hospitals blocking doctors from using a safe, FDA-approved drug: Why?

Sun Ng at Edward Hospital in Napierville, Illinois, where officials refused, until ordered by a court, to administer life-saving ivermectin for covid. (Photo by daughter Man Kwan Ng as submitted to the court.)

Sun Ng, a retired contractor from Hong Kong, traveled to Illinois to celebrate his only granddaughter’s first birthday. He got covid and was near death in a Chicago-area hospital. All other options were exhausted, but the hospital refused to give Mr. Ng a generic, FDA-approved drug with an extraordinary safety record that a doctor believed could safe his life.

Finally, a judge asked the right question about ivermectin.

“What’s the downside?”

Put another way: If a man is dying of covid in an ICU and all else has been tried, why not order a hospital to give a safe, last-ditch drug?

Edward Hospital, located near Chicago, offered three arguments as to why Sun Ng, seventy-one, should not be given ivermectin:

  • There could be side effects.
  • Ordering ivermectin would violate its policies.
  • Forcing the issue would be “extraordinary” judicial overreach.

On each argument, DuPage County Circuit Court Judge Paul Fullerton firmly disagreed.

“I can’t think of a more extraordinary situation than when we are talking about a man’s life,” he said in a November 5 decision that is a model of rational decision-making in an irrational era.

“I am not forcing this hospital to do anything other than to step aside,” he continued in a Zoom hearing. “I am just asking—or not asking—I am ordering through the Court’s power to allow Dr. Bain to have the emergency privileges and administer this medicine.”

The hospital ultimately stepped aside. Dr. Alan Bain, an internist, administered a five-day course of 24 milligrams of ivermectin, from November 8 through November 12.

Myocarditis and Pericarditis After mRNA COVID-19 Vaccination | by CDC @ CDC.gov

CDC and its partners are actively monitoring reports of myocarditis and pericarditis after COVID-19 vaccination. Active monitoring includes reviewing data and medical records and evaluating the relationship to COVID-19 vaccination.

Myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle, and pericarditis is inflammation of the outer lining of the heart. In both cases, the body’s immune system causes inflammation in response to an infection or some other trigger. Learn more about myocarditis and pericarditis.external icon Seek medical care if you or your child have symptoms of these conditions after COVID-19 vaccination. Myocarditis and pericarditis have rarely been reported, especially in adolescents and young adult males within several days after COVID-19 vaccination.

What You Need to Know

  • Cases of myocarditis reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)external icon have occurred:
    • After mRNA COVID-19 vaccination (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), especially in male adolescents and young adults
    • More often after the second dose
    • Usually within a week of vaccination
  • Most patients with myocarditis or pericarditis who received care responded well to medicine and rest and felt better quickly.
  • Patients can usually return to their normal daily activities after their symptoms improve. Those who have been diagnosed with myocarditis should consult with their cardiologist (heart doctor) about return to exercise or sports. More information will be shared as it becomes available.

Ethical Doctor Practicing Ethical Medicine Reports 0/2000 Hospitalization Rate in Patients Treated for COVID-19 | Dr. Mary Talley Bowden | PopularRationalismSubstack.com

Houston Methodist Tried to Defame Ethical Physician on Twitter and Revoked Her Patient Privileges Claiming She Spread “Misinformation”. She Hired a Lawyer and Methodist’s Plan Blew Up in Their Face.

Alert: Note Below How You Can Help

Dr. Mary Talley Bowden, an Ethical Physician (ENT) who owns a private practice in Houston, Texas, was informed in mid-November by the press that her privileges to treat patients at Methodist Hospital had been revoked.

That same Ethical Physician a press conference on Nov 17th at which she revealed, using real world data:

  • Due to early and aggressive treatment, 0/2000 of her patients she treated for COVID-19 had to be hospitalized.
  • 30% of her patients use Ivermectin.
  • Ivermectin is a safe, FDA-approved medicine.
  • None of her patients taking Ivermectin reported any side effects.

Methodist hospital was the first hospital in the country to mandate vaccines, and she reported to the press that, according to the reports she has read, they are using her as an “example”. She reported that an online group was participating in her defamation, with false online reviews of her practice, as well as calls to report her to the medical board.

As far as being an example, I say, yes, Dr. Mary Talley Bowden is an example of the new Ethical Physician that we need to spread throughout allopathic medicine in a new culture of Ethical Medicine.

Fauci Now Claims The Vax Doesn’t Protect Against Serious Covid! | Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams | ronpaulinstitute.org

In an interview with the New York Times earlier this month, Fauci made a startling revelation: the vaccine wanes so seriously that it doesn’t even protect against hospitalization and death! His solution? MORE shots. Will America keep listening to him? Also today: South Korea got fully vaxxed…then they all got covid! What’s going on here?

An Impolite Message to Those Who Got the Covid “Vaccine” | by Walter Gelles – LewRockwell.com

Wake up, you idiots!  If you willingly got the genetic-modification treatment known as the COVID-19 “vaccine” (Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, etc.), you were tricked into injecting a harmful, dangerous, unapproved, and often lethal product into your body.  A wholly unnecessary product that does not protect you, does not provide immunity or prevent transmission of the virus—but does wreck your immune system, damages your organs, causes blood clots and internal inflammation, and renders you more susceptible to many diseases, including cancer.

Because you took the “vaccine”,  your body is manufacturing millions or billions of spike proteins. The spike protein is toxic, pathogenic (disease-causing), and coagulatory (it causes blood clots).  These synthetic spike proteins made by your cells are supposedly identical to the spike protein in the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as determined by computer modeling of genetic fragments supplied to the U.S. from Chinese laboratories controlled by the Chinese Communist Party.

That’s what your body is producing by the millions or billions, confusing the hell out of your immune system, weakening its ability to make essential helper T cells and CD8 cells which ward off other viruses and diseases.

The lipid hydrogel that coats the fragile mRNA strands in the Pfizer and Moderna shots contains nanoparticles that cross the blood-brain barrier, causing paralysis, uncontrollable convulsions, neurodegenerative diseases, permanent vision loss, spinal damage, and more.  Hundreds of thousands of people have suffered these “side effects”—or dropped dead—within hours or days after getting the jab.

The vaccine manufacturers knew full well about all of the potential adverse reactions.   Therefore, the so-called “vaccine” is a bioweapon.  Its only conceivable purpose is depopulation.  The “vaccine” has nothing to do with improving your health.  It’s an instrument of social control, part of the Great Reset aiming for an authoritarian technofascist society where “you will own nothing, and you’ll be happy,” as per the World Economic Forum.

You should know:

* The lockdowns you observe as a key ritual in your new State Religion—the Covidian Cult—are absurd and have no scientific basis.

* Your face-diapers (“masks”) are useless.  There is no scientific basis to warrant their use, but they do increase bacterial diseases in the mask-wearer and are especially dangerous for children, blocking the flow of oxygen and potentially injuring their brains.

* The fraudulent PCR test is a scam.  It’s incapable of diagnosing any illness or infection, as pointed out by Dr. Kary Mullis, Nobel Prize-winning inventor of the PCR technique.  The CDC, FDA, and WHO have all officially admitted that the PCR test is worthless and can’t differentiate between COVID-19 and the seasonal flu or common cold!  The diagnostic tests being introduced in December to replace the phony PCR test are all “Emergency Use Authorization” gimmicks, as meaningless as the PCR test.

* The PCR test yields false-positives up to 97% of the time.  Yet this junk data was (and is) used as the basis to declare a pandemic and enforce lockdowns, masks, social distancing, and mandated vaccines.

The Powers That Be tested your willingness to comply.  To be misled.  To do irrational, self-destructive things.  And you obeyed, you fell for it.  You fell for the scamdemic, predicated on a respiratory virus that is less dangerous than the seasonal flu according to the governments’ own statistics.

The people whom you label “anti-vaxxers” or “conspiracy theorists” are no such thing.  They’re ordinary people, just like you.  But unlike you, they used common sense.  They were not cowed by the Mainstream Media’s 24/7 fear-mongering campaign of lies and disinformation.  They did their homework and quickly discovered that the so-called Covid “vaccines” are a great hazard thousands of times more dangerous than any alleged “novel coronavirus”.

Guess who’s exempt from all requirements and mandates to get the COVID-19 “vaccine”?  The following people are totally exempt:  all US Senators and House Representatives plus all Congressional staff;  6,000 White House employees;  all employees of Pfizer (2,500), Moderna (1,500), and Johnson & Johnson (120,000); 15,000 CDC workers; and 14,000 FDA employees.

Now do you see the elephant in the room?  The Pharma-controlled politicians, the vaccine companies, the corrupt CDC and FDA health agencies owned by Big Pharma, the government officials who are forcing the death-shots on the rest of us…They are all EXEMPT from getting the jab.  They know what’s in the poisonous serum and what harm it can do.  But you must take it or lose your job.  You must get jabbed with the genetic cocktail if you want to go shopping or eat at a restaurant.

Do you see how insane and criminal this is?  Do you still think it’s a “crazy conspiracy theory”?  You’re close.  It’s an insane conspiracy indeed, hatched by eugenicists, depopulation advocates, super-wealthy oligarchs, and One World Government proponents over twenty years ago.

Oh, I almost forgot… Two million illegal aliens are also exempted from the vaccines by the unelected President Biden, so that they can flood the country, get bussed or jet-planed to Republican states, and spread sickness and death while they receive endless government hand-outs and vote Democrat.  And the Republicans are letting it happen.
