Jack C. Askins, M.D.: SO HOW IS YOUR CONFIRMATION BIAS? 4 (1)

by Jack C. Askins, M.D.

Confirmation bias. We all have it, you know. It is part of the human condition. You can deny it but then that would be confirming your bias. And bias isn’t always a bad thing. Absence of bias, if it were to mean absence of opinion, would reveal a colorless and uninteresting human being. Opinions, and our dedication to them, contribute to our diversity, intellect, wit, and appeal. It is when bias in the form of opinion is used by those in positions of leadership and authority to silence alternative opinion (and bias), that it becomes tyranny and fascism when administered. The Founding Fathers of this country had that figured out and it is why we have freedom of speech in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.


This is the definition of confirmation bias that applies to the world of medicine and science:

 In psychology and cognitive science, confirmation bias (or confirmatory bias) is a tendency to search for or interpret   information in a way that confirms one’s preconceptions, leading to statistical errors.

Confirmation bias is a type of cognitive bias and represents an error of inductive inference toward confirmation of the hypothesis under study.

Confirmation bias is a phenomenon wherein decision makers have been shown to actively seek out and assign more weight to evidence that confirms their hypothesis, and ignore or underweigh evidence that could disconfirm their hypothesis. As such, it can be thought of as a form of selection bias in collecting evidence.


In the course of doing literature research on the Covid virus and the pandemic, it became apparent that over the past 18 months, and particularly during 2021, confirmation bias was alive and well, stronger than ever, and being exploited by political leadership and the media to drive their agenda and change our culture. We were no longer having objective discussions on the medical science involving diagnosis and treatments of this virus. Diversity of opinion was no longer being tolerated.

When language is controlled by those with a bias to be confirmed, it can be used to silence and bully those with an opposing opinion. Words and concepts and their historical meanings can be gradually changed to represent hate, ignorance, or “misinformation”.

Dr. Mark McDonald is a prominent California psychiatrist who recently had the following quote that deals with the use of language to confirm the bias of those favoring mandated vaccines and to denigrate those who favor medical and body autonomy: “Pandemic of the unvaccinated” has emerged as an expression of propaganda meant to provoke anger toward those who exercise medical choice in deferring or refusing the experimental vaccine. It is meant to isolate, shame, and humiliate anyone who will not agree to surrender medical autonomy to the state. It intentionally divides Americans against one another while simultaneously distracting attention from the medical reality of poor vaccine efficacy and vaccine harm. The expression is devoid of scientific meaning but full of coercive psychological power. It must be challenged.

People have concerns about the mRNA shots and cite as the basis for their concerns it’s new technology never before used to create a vaccine, or the abbreviated approval process and lack of long term complications and outcome data, or the frantic coercion being used to promote and mandate its acceptance. There has been no acknowledgement of the people with natural immunity which is known to be better than vaccine immunity. Instead of a respectful dialogue that provides answers to their concerns, the mRNA hesitant are denigrated and turned into dangerous pariahs out to infect and harm the vaccinated. The word “antivaxxers” is now being used to refer to people who have these concerns.

So what is driving all of this mandate madness as it comes from hospital administrators and their physician advisors? It probably is not concern for public health as it has been shown that injecting hospital workers with these experimental drugs will not reduce Covid in the community. Nor has there been data to suggest hospital staff infecting patients. Follow the money is always a high percentage bet. Apparently the Feds pay more for a Covid diagnosis. We have all heard about the patient who was said to have died from Covid 19 when it was actually the gunshot wound to the head that caused his demise. Set those cycle thresholds high enough on the PCR machines and most anyone can be Covid positive. Follow the money.

Now, the Feds have gone full unconstitutional and tied hospital Medicare reimbursement to compliance with the “vaccine” mandates. If this stands, what will be mandated next? Abortions required to be done in all hospital facilities? How about gender re-assignment surgery on kids? Perhaps without parental consent. Medicare is due to run out of money soon. Maybe they will mandate no pacemakers or hip replacements, or dialysis after age 70. There is now a report of a woman in Colorado who has been denied consideration for a renal transplant because she is not “vaccinated” Use your imagination; there are no limits anymore. If they can require all citizens to be enrolled in an experimental drug trial without informed consent, they can do anything they want. This isn’t about public health.

But what of the physicians? Physicians do not appear to be profiting from this pandemic and the mRNA shots unless they bought stock in Pfizer or Moderna.

No, uninformed and misinformed probably explains most of the physician collaborators. There may be a few CDC zealots who believe everything that Dr. Fauci says as gospel, perhaps not realizing the CDC, the NIH, and perhaps the FDA have been compromised and politicized. Name one thing the CDC has been right about the past 21 months. As for the FDA, they abandoned all historical benchmarks and norms to “approve” this drug. Now that “leadership” physicians (local and national) have made their decisions, they seem not to be bothered by facts and new data discrediting this “vaccine” fiasco. That’s called confirmation bias.

For the hospital administrators and physicians who may read this piece, here is a short psychological test to determine how your confirmation bias is doing. If you become angry upon reading this, and ignore or discount its messages, you can be assured that deep part of your brain from which arise anger, hubris, arrogance, and confirmation bias is intact and functioning full strength. If however, you are motivated to do more reading and not just that which supports your current positions on vaccines and mandates, then you have taken a big step towards controlling and overcoming these base emotions. In either case, show some spine and do something positive for your fellow hospital workers, your colleagues, your community, the hospital, freedom and liberty and stop this evil and misguided mandate.

COVID-19 Mandates Affecting United Regional Hospital in Wichita Falls, Guest: Derek Ruvalcaba (10/14/21) 5 (1)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-p5u8h-110bb1b

Special Guest: Derek Ruvalcaba (Hospital Staff, United Regional, Wichita Falls)

Topic: COVID-19 Mandates.

In response to Gov. Gregg Abbott’s Executive Order BANNING Vaccine Mandates by any entity in the state of Texas, United Regional Hospital CEO Phyllis Cowling wrote to the staff to say that “our vaccine requirements … were designed to comply with existing state and federal laws. We will be working closely with the legal counsel, The Texas Hospital Association (THA), and others to evaluate the Executive Order (as well as any subsequent legislation) …” 

This certainly sounds as if the UR team of lawyers will be looking for loopholes in the Executive Orders and/or possible legislation in order to continue the mandates.

Addressing this issue is Derek Ruvalcaba, who is an “in studio” guest on the show. Derek has some great insights, as well as suggestions, pertaining to the mandates, the health and safety of the hospital staff, as well as the exemption requests being made by numerous individuals connected with the hospital.

Sadly, over 140 trained staff members have already LEFT United Regional over this mandate; the morale of the hospital staff is sagging, and healthcare workers themselves declare that they should have control over their own healthcare as well.

COVID Vaccine Mandates Affecting Wichita Falls, Guest: Dr. Jack Askins, Derek Ruvalcaba, & Kelly Fristoe (10/07/21) 5 (1)

 

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-a822k-110bb10

Special Edition of American Liberty with Bill Lockwood

Topic: COVID vaccine mandates affecting Wichita Falls United Regional Hospital

Guests: Dr. Jack Askins (Cardiologist)

Derek Ruvalcaba (Hospital Manager for United Regional)

Kelly Fristoe (Insurance specialist; former board member at UR)

All IN STUDIO

The issues fall into TWO CATEGORIES: (1) The Political Side–mandates; (2) The Medical Side–safety concerns.

The Discussion surrounded (1) The COVID vaccine mandates coming from United Regional Hospital in Wichita Falls, a hospital that serves 9 counties. Qualified and superior nurses and doctors are in the midst of being forced out of the hospital over the “mandates” that are coming down from the medical board. What situation will that leave for serving the community–in the midst of a supposed “pandemic”? (2) The effects on the community as a whole, doctors, nurses, first responders, fire fighters, law enforcement. (3) How is it that a government bureaucratic board will make “determination” as to which “religious exemption” from the shot they will accept and who they will reject? Something is certainly wrong with this concept.

(4) Why are no alternatives to the COVID shot allowed? Why not testing? Why is it that “natural immunity”–which doctors around the entire world declare is “the gold standard” for protection–is discounted and the shots are mandated for those who have already had COVID? (5) Are we fighting a “war” on the political front, or are we fighting a disease? (6) The ineffectiveness of the COVID shots–one who has had the shot can still get COVID, die from COVID, or spread COVID. Why is it that the CDC has “changed” its definitions of a “vaccine” only very recently?

These and other topics are discussed with these experts in their fields.

Jack C. Askins, M.D. : IMMUNITY, VACCINES, AND MANDATE CONSIDERATIONS-Part 1 4 (1)

by Jack C. Askins, M.D.

The purpose of a vaccine is to prevent an infection, or lessen the severity of an infection if a person were to become infected. From a public health standpoint, the purpose of a vaccine is to reduce and hopefully prevent the spread of a virus within a given population. It was concern for public health that resulted in a Supreme Court ruling in favor of a mandate for inoculation with the vaccine for smallpox in 1905 (Jacobson v Massachusetts). Subsequently, 100 years of Supreme Court and state case law have solidified vaccine mandates in the American public health arena.
It is worth noting smallpox was highly contagious, had a 30% mortality rate, and was disfiguring in survivors due to the skin lesions. Prior to the landmark 1905 decision, the smallpox vaccine had been found to be highly effective in preventing infection. Scientific discovery of a smallpox vaccine began in 1796 when Edward Jenner used material from a skin lesion on a cow (cowpox) to inoculate people and prevent smallpox. Cowpox was used until a more modern vaccine was created in the mid 1900’s.

The historical precedence and success of vaccines for smallpox, measles, mumps, rubella, polio, and hepatitis has been highly referenced to support mandates for the inoculation of the mRNA drugs for Covid-19. However, there are important differences in the development and effectiveness of the drugs. The MMR, hepatitis, smallpox, and polio vaccines had much longer development times and phase 3 clinical trials typically lasted years. The overall effectiveness of these vaccines approach 100%. Durability of immunity is measured in years, and often last a lifetime. By comparison to the mRNA drugs, there was minimal reporting of complications in the CDC VAERS data for the vaccines over the past 30 years Vaccine hesitancy and opposition to the mandates most often focuses on the following: liberty and freedom to choose (“my body, my choice”), the abbreviated clinical trials and FDA approval schedule which is unprecedented, the lack of long-term complications data for the injections, the average 98-99% survival rate of the virus (nearly 100% survival in children), the emerging poor efficacy and durability of the mRNA drug, and the CDC VAERS data of complications and deaths following administration of the mRNA drugs. The frantic coercion now being applied in the enforcement of the mandates is also leading to resistance.

But here is the important point in regards to the current mandates: the mRNA vaccines we currently have, unfortunately, do not meet the standards set by previous vaccines,upon which rests 100 years of Supreme Court and state case law now being referenced to support “vaccine” mandates. The effectiveness of the Pfizer shots are down to 39-41% to prevent infection and the CDC admits the mRNA shots do not prevent viral spread by infected, vaccinated people. The CDC found it necessary to redefine “vaccine” as providing “protection” but not necessarily “immunity”.
The nasal viral loads of the vaccinated with a breakthrough infection is the same, if not higher, than the unvaccinated with a Covid infection. The poor effectiveness and inability of the mRNA drugs to prevent viral spread, negates the public health reasons for the mandates. The supporters of the mandates cite less severe infection and a lower death rate in the mRNA “vaccinated” but the Israeli and UK data argue against that as their current surge and hospitalizations have become a pandemic of the vaccinated.

Throughout all of this discourse, there has been a glaring omission of a very important question and fact. To not discuss this fact must be by design as it is a core fundamental in all of virology, immunology, and is the gold standard to which successful vaccine development has been compared. The question is, “what is more important, vaccine status or immune status?” The answer, of course, is immune status. Vaccines strive to attain immunity. Vaccine status does not guarantee immunity. As stated above, historical and traditional vaccines attain immunity with a very high degree of effectiveness in order to achieve FDA approval for mass vaccination. These mRNA drugs would not have achieved FDA approval using those historical standards.

There are interesting recommendations within the CDC vaccine recommendations at CDC.gov. I have enclosed “Table 3” that deals with “acceptable presumptive evidence of immunity” regarding the viruses responsible for measles, mumps, and rubella. Referring to “medical personnel”, the recommendations state “laboratory evidence of immunity” and “laboratory evidence of disease” are both identified as alternatives to “documentation of vaccination”. I have enclosed a copy of Table 3 (see link below) at the end of this document.

Laboratory evidence of immunity to the Covid-19 virus has advanced from these older MMR recommendations and include qualitative IgG and IgM antibodies against the spike protein, a semi-quantitative antibody test against the spike protein, and antibodies against the nucleocapsid of the virus (mRNA inoculation recipients do not form antibodies against the nucleocapsid). Additionally, there is a T cell test (T-Detect) which determines the presence of T cell immunity against the Covid virus and is reported as positive or negative.

I had a Covid infection in November, 2020, and did the T cell test 2 months ago and it was positive for T cell immunity. I did the other antibody tests this week and I have IgG and IgM antibodies against Covid-19, antibodies to the nucleocapsid, and my semiquantitative antibody result is 148.0 U/ml (negative is <0.8). In context with
available data and studies referenced in my fact sheet with references enclosed with this document, immunity against

Covid-19 that is robust, broad, and durable is demonstrated. There is mounting evidence the mRNA shots are not safe for the Covid-recovered person with natural immunity. Systemic inflammatory reactions (cytokine storm) and venous and arterial thrombosis have been shown to occur following the immunization. Thus, for the natural immunity person, there is no compelling reason to take the shot for immunity and there is a small risk of a significant vaccine injury.

Hooman Noorchasm, M.D., PhD is an internationally known and respected immunologist and immunology consultant. He recently stated “any move to mandate Americans who had recovered from the virus to get vaccinated was unscientific, unethical and illegal”. He has advocated for diagnostic testing for antibodies to Covid-19 prior to vaccination to see if there is established immunity present and determine need for the shots. He also states up to 30% of those who receive the mRNA inoculations do not establish adequate immunity. He goes on to say patients who receive the shots should be tested later for antibodies to ensure adequate immunization.

The unvaccinated are being presented as a monolithic group with no mention that it is a binary group comprised of Covid-naive and Covid-recovered people. This fact is not being acknowledged by the CDC in their zeal to promote the mRNA inoculations. Consequently, the media and senior leadership at United Regional Hospital are ignoring the established science related to natural immunity that has been shown to be superior to vaccine “protection”. A high percentage of our health care workers are Covid-recovered and would have measurable immunity to the virus. These are the same health care workers that worked all last year and so far this year at URH to provide care for sick, Covid-infected people in our community. To now take a one-size-fits-all approach and mandate these poorly effective drugs of limited durability with the coercion of loss of employment (or staff privileges) is nothing less than unethical, immoral, and possibly unconstitutional.

Bill Lockwood: Tyranny is Here 4 (1)

by Bill Lockwood

The day our forebears in the Americana have warned about is here. Tyranny. There is no other way to describe President Joe Biden’s pompously mandating the COVID shots for all citizens in American businesses that employ 100 persons or more. Lacking only the enforcement mechanism, the Biden presidency is operating as a dictatorship.

As of Wednesday of this week, twenty-seven governors or attorneys general have vowed to fight President Biden’s mandate that over 80 million private employees receive COVID vaccinations and undergo weekly testing. Putting teeth into the mandate, Biden promises that employers who fail to comply will be fined.

The Biden back door method to implementing such draconian measures is through OSHA—Occupational Safety and Health Administration. So announces his Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, who promised that Biden has a slew of new and greater measures to be unveiled later this week. Vivek went so far as to say: we have to “use every level of government” to tackle this virus.

There you have it. OSHA is a part of the unconstitutional FOURTH branch of government. Truth be told, We the People have allowed unconstitutional actions to accelerate over the past 75—perhaps 100 years– to a degree that now the president feels emboldened to pull off the mask and reveal the dictatorship.

What unconstitutional actions do we have in mind? One illustration out of myriads is the following.

In 2011 Congress passed 81 bills into law. During the very same period, however, federal agencies pushed 3,807 new regulations on Americans. These rules are treated as law. In 2016, federal departments, agencies, and commission issued 3,853 rules while Congress passed only 214 bills into law—a ratio of 18 “rules” for every law.

According to Forbes magazine, the average has been 27 rules for every law over the past decade. From 1995 through December 2016, there have been a whopping 88,899 rules and regulations passed by federal agencies operating beneath the executive branch, but only 4,312 laws for the same period.

This is why federal bureaucrats act dictatorial in that they send out armies of regulatory compliance officers to monitor and enforce regulations, levy fines, make arrests and in general, demand compliance. These officers are unelected and unaccountable to the American people they supposedly serve.

The very first sentence of Article 1, Section 1 of the US Constitution reads, “ALL legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.” Pretty simple. The Constitution does not allow Congress to sublet its lawmaking authority to the president, bureaucrats, or judges. But even more than that. Congress has only those legislative powers “herein granted.” This means that it has no authority to pass any and every law that Congressional members desire, but only those dealing with specific matters delegated by the Constitution.

Patience, tolerance, and constitutional ignorance in the American people do not begin to describe what has been occurring for nearly a century. Anesthetized is more like it. In the Biden Administration we are staring at the very definition of tyranny.

Bill Lockwood: America Managed by a Deep State 4 (1)

by Bill Lockwood

America is in real trouble. It is doubtful if elections will fix it. That is because our beloved country is now ruled by a Deep State—a behemoth apparatus of unelected Marxists and/or bureaucrats that are sitting in the driver’s seat, taking us over the cliff of totalitarianism. It is “we the people” who have let this monstrosity occur by allowing all powers to gravitate to a centralized government that now knows no bounds.

The Deep State, which openly threatens to completely destroy our constitutional system, is comprised of the main-stream media, which is the tainted mouthpiece for the Democratic Party; the military-industrial complex, the highest levels of the intelligence community, including the FBI and CIA, the national security apparatus, the communistic-leaning university brainwashing centers, plus the Socialist Party (aka Democrat Party).

These conclusions have become exceedingly clear in the wake of special counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the “Russia” probe that plagued the presidency of Donald Trump.

According to the reporting by The Epoch Times, Perkins Coie attorney Michael Sussmann, a cyber-security expert, has been charged with one count of lying to the FBI. However, in the indictment by Durham are allegations that a coterie of insiders working with the Hillary Clinton campaign actually “devised” the “Russia collusion” hoax against Donald Trump, beginning in 2016. The key findings, as well as the implications, include:

There is a Marxist-oriented Deep State that has been at work against all things Donald Trump.
This Deep State was able to manipulate and manufacture public opinion against conservative candidate and later president Trump by “shaping the narrative” of a “collusion” between Donald Trump and Russia, all of which has been found to be groundless. Yet, this narrative absorbed practically every bit of oxygen left in our country.

There is a Deep-Seated Conspiracy to Overturn the Freedoms of the United States. Most of Durham’s 27-page report “details the coordinated actions” of multiple players in the higher echelons of government. Sussmann himself headed a group of key players in the government to

• “devise allegations regarding a secret communications channel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank.” These allegations were designed to
• trigger an FBI investigation into the Trump organization and “a particular Russian bank.” These insiders, led by the likes of Sussmann, worked with operatives of the Hillary Clinton campaign.
• Their goal was to damage the Trump campaign for presidency. “Durham established at the outset that the object of the conspiracy was achieved.”
• Jake Sullivan, the current national security adviser to President Biden, was himself involved in this conspiracy. Sullivan and Jennifer Palmieri, the communications director for the Clinton campaign, actually teamed up to brief the media on the Trump-Russia collusion story.
• The Main-Stream-Media gladly ran with it.
• The Democratic National Committee actually participated in the overall scheme through operative Alexandra Chalupa who, in turn, began working with willing Ukrainian officials to give the appearance of legitimacy.
• Chalupa had also worked closely with Yahoo News reporter Michael Isikoff, who would then report on one of Trump’s foreign policy team members, Carter Page. These manufactured reports were designed to obtain FISA warrants against Trump’s team. This also was successful.
• After Trump won the May 3, 2016 primary in Indiana, the colluders grappled with how to “roll-out” the entire story against Trump. All conspirators, including Hillary Clinton herself, understood that these machinations would never amount to a real indictment against Trump, but would at least hinder his candidacy, and later roadblock his presidency. This is exactly what occurred.
• British spy Christopher Steele was later brought into the conspiracy. In April 2016, Fusion GPS was hired by Perkins Coie specifically to “continue research” on Trump. Fusion would then turn around and hire Steele.

It is also more than interesting that the left becomes basically “unhinged” when the word “conspiracy” is used to refer to their plots, schemes, and machinations against Donald Trump or conservatism in general. However, after Steele was hired, with approval from Hillary Clinton, he hastily produced and undated infamous “Steele dossier” which alleged “a well-developed conspiracy of cooperation” between Donald Trump and the Kremlin.

At the same time, the Clinton campaign manager Robbie Mook was publicly suggesting on CNN with Jake Tapper that “experts are now saying the Russians are releasing these emails for the purpose of actually helping Donald Trump.”

The incriminating emails in question were those of the DNC that had been released that showed that the DNC had undermined the campaign of Bernie Sanders. Mook went on to say, “This isn’t my assertion. There are a number of experts that are asserting this….This is what experts are telling us.” The experts he had in mind were apparently those of his Marxist club.

Two days later the then-Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe released documents that alleged that Hillary Clinton allegedly approved a proposal from “one of her foreign policy advisors” to “vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security forces.”

Thus, the Russia-Trump collusion was a hoax—hatched in the brains of conspirators against our Republic. More ominous still is the fact that this Deep State continues to control the Unite States. So, whether the topic is vaccinations or unmanageable spending and debt, unconstitutional global “treaties” that strip America of its wealth, more onerous IRS armies grasping for the earned tax dollars of workers, or flagrantly abusing the law by leaving our borders wide open—little will be able to be done by constitutionalists unless strongest measures are quickly undertaken.

We need immediately to begin Nullifying lawless federal actions; establishing “sanctuary cities” and “counties” against the onslaught of this communism; empowering provisional governments at the state level to push back against the feds, or simply secede.

 

Bill Lockwood: Retired State Senator in New Battle Against Domestic Communism 4 (1)

by Bill Lockwood

Richard Hayden Black served 16 years in the Virginia House of Delegates and Virginia Senate. He withdrew from office in 2020, but beginning this year began speaking out at local school board meetings in Loudoun County, his home.

His county has become ground zero for the fight against the Critical Race Theory (CRT), a variation of Marxism that interprets society through the lens of racial class struggle and sees inherent racism in the foundations of Western societies.

Black criticized school board members for suppressing freedom of speech and for the indoctrination of students. He moved to condemn the “transgender policies” which allow boys to use girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms. As Black spoke the crowd began to cheer. They grew louder as he continued. Many stood up to express their agreement.

Immediately, the school board members voted to end the public comment period and retreated from the dais. They made Black approximately the 50th and effectively the last speaker out of the total 289 registered to speak.

Black is a Vietnam Vet, having spent 32 years as a Marine, rising to the rank of Lt. Col. and the U.S. Army JAG Corps, the legal arm of the U.S. Army. He holds three Legions of Merit, the Purpose Heart Medal with “V” for Valor, the Combat Action Ribbon, and two presidential Unit Citations. Black has lived face-to-face with communism. Here is what he warns America:

It has reached an incredibly dangerous point at this time, where we honestly risk the fragmentation and disintegration of our culture.

As I have warned my entire adult life, Christians had better get very serious about their religion.

John Kachelman, Jr.: Meet the Flimflam Man behind the COVID-19 Farce. 4 (1)

by John Kachelman, Jr.

The Madness Continues Extra…Just when you thought Big Brother could not invade and control your personal life any more comes this news from AP Press, “Bacon may disappear in California as pig rules take effect”
“At the beginning of next year, California will begin enforcing an animal welfare proposition approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2018 that requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens and veal calves…only 4% of hog operations now comply with the new rules. Unless the courts intervene or the state temporarily allows non-compliant meat to be sold in the state, California will lose almost all of its pork supply.”

Meet the Flimflam Man behind the COVID-19 Farce…

Dishonesty is a vile and reprehensible Satanic trait; the antithesis of truth; and, enslaves with tyranny.
This despicable trait is damned in Scripture:
Proverbs 20:23, “Differing weights are an abomination to the Lord, and a false scale is not good.”
Amos 8:5, condemns those who use dishonesty to “to cheat with dishonest scales.”

The Flimflam artist hones his talents to an amazing skill and persuades his victim to believe in and purchase something that is worthless—it has no real value; all is a gilded show with deceptive vocabulary. The target is studied, his weaknesses are identified, and then he is manipulated to do the Flimflam man’s objectives!

Do not think the flimflam is restricted only to cunning individuals. Nations have twisted the truth for the benefit of their reigning Powers. Such is illustrated by the World Empire Babylon in Daniel 5:27, “you have been weighed on the scales and found deficient.” Dishonesty is visible even in worldly governments!

Consider the flagrant and blatant dishonesty that is now being exposed about COVID-19. From the beginning it was announced by many that the testing data was skewed, the laboratory protocols were suspect, and trying to get any specifics about this viral pandemic is as successful as nailing Jell-O to the wall! This dishonesty is bilking millions of citizens out of personal freedoms, future health security, earned incomes, and personal rights.
But the voices of fearmongering alarms were long, loud and strong. These prevailed and forced shutdowns were recorded worldwide.

NOW data is coming forward exposing the flimflam of COVID-19 fearmongering.

Recently I sent out an article about the CDC’s confession that the swab test was unreliable (this CDC report is referenced below). The CDC’s confessions only confused the confused data that has been bombarding the public for over a year. So, this test will be discontinued 31 December 2021. A question unanswered is “WHY WAIT?”

Mike Adams published a shocking article on 30 July 2021 titled, CDC, FDA Faked ‘COVID-19’ Testing Protocol by Using Human Cells Mixed With Common Cold Virus Fragments
Here are excerpts from it and I have added emphasis to the sections I find alarming. I know it is a long read for some but the material presented is valuable as each considers how to respond to the hyped-hysteria regarding vaccinations.

“In a shocking revelation first reported by Dan Dicks of Press for Truth (Canada), an FDA document admits that the CDC and FDA conspired to fabricate a COVID-19-19 testing protocol using human cells combined with common cold virus fragments because they had no physical samples of the SARS-CoV-2 ‘COVID-19’ virus available.

“Without physical reference material to use for calibration and confirmation, the test has zero scientific basis in physical reality. And all the PCR analysis based on this protocol is utterly fraudulent, flagging people as “positive” for COVID-19 when they merely possess tiny quantities of RNA fragments from other coronavirus strains circulating in their blood.

“The FDA document, available from the FDA.gov website, is entitled, “CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel.” The document astonishingly admits:
“Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV were available for CDC use at the time the test was developed and this study conducted, assays designed for detection of the 2019-nCoV RNA were tested with characterized stocks of in vitro transcribed full length RNA (N gene; GenBank accession: MN908947.2) of known titer (RNA copies/µL) spiked into a diluent consisting of a suspension of human A549 cells and viral transport medium (VTM) to mimic clinical specimen.”

“In other words, they had no COVID-19 virus from which to develop and calibrate the test, so they mixed up a cocktail of human cells and RNA fragments from a common cold virus, then called it ‘COVID-19.’ The GenBank sequence referred to in this paragraph is simply a digital library definition that’s labeled “COVID-19” but has no supporting reference materials in physical reality either.

“That’s because no doctor or researcher has isolated ‘COVID-19’ from any infected, symptomatic patient. As a result, no laboratory instruments can be calibrated against actual COVID-19, and the tests simply rely on digital libraries pushed out by the CDC and WHO, using ‘COVID-19’ as the label.

“The PCR tests are then instructed to look for these genetic sequences obtained from the fabricated digital libraries, meaning the entire scheme is junk science circular logic with no basis in physical reality.

“I am the founder and owner of an analytical laboratory that routinely conducts quantitative analysis of food contaminants, producing high-precision analysis results for pesticides, herbicides and heavy metals. In every case where we conduct lab analysis, we calibrate the instruments against known physical samples called ‘external standards’ or ‘certified reference materials.’ (CRM). Any lab can purchase CRMs for mercury, arsenic, glyphosate and even salmonella. For example, this link at Biosisto lists CRMs for various salmonella strains. Labs can purchase those reference materials and use them to calibrate their instruments, making sure their analysis is traced back to physical, real-world samples of a purified material. These CRMs, in turn, must be NIST-traceable in order to confirm their origin and authenticity. All CRMs are therefore labeled with lot numbers and expiration dates.

“While labs can purchase reference materials for microbes, heavy metals, pesticides, etc. — all physical materials — I have searched far and wide and have not been able to locate any certified reference materials for SARS-CoV-2 or even a weakened, non-viable version of it. As far as I can tell, there appear to be no physical specimens of isolated COVID-19 viruses available for instrument calibrations and testing protocol quality control.

“To be clear, I’m not saying that viruses don’t exist, and it’s quite clear that the Wuhan Institute of Virology colluded with Fauci, Daszak, the NIH, Baric and others to develop a weaponized spike protein. But the spike protein is not a virus by itself. It’s simply a toxic nanoparticle that can be synthesized in quantity and then either dumped on cities or added to vaccines and injected into people via immunization protocols.

“If COVID-19-19” is a real virus that can be isolated, why are there apparently no physical reference materials to calibrate laboratory instruments for COVID-19 detection? And why were no such materials used in the development of the FDA-approved, CDC-endorsed PCR testing protocols?

“CDC pulls its own fraudulent COVID-19 PCR testing protocol, implying it cannot differentiate between COVID-19 and influenza

“What adds to the mystery in all this is the fact that the CDC just issued a “laboratory alert,” announcing their intention to withdraw the faulty PCR testing protocol by the end of this year. As part of their announcement, they implied that the current PCR test — the same one the FDA mentioned above, which was developed without any physical COVID-19 samples for calibration — cannot tell the difference between influenza and COVID-19.
“Influenza cases nearly disappeared in 2020 as influenza was re-labeled “COVID-19” due to the faulty testing.
“Percentage influenza positivity decreased by 64% (p = 0.001) and estimated daily number of influenza cases decreased by 76% (p = 0.002) in epidemiologic weeks 5–9 of 2020 compared with the preceding years,” reported the CDC in 2020.

“In essence, the medical establishment simply took all the people who would normally be diagnosed with colds and the flu, and shifted them into the “COVID-19” category in order to push a COVID-19 mass hysteria narrative that would drive people into vaccines. The vaccines, then, were formulated with spike protein toxic nanoparticles to cause the “delta” panic wave, which is largely occurring among vaccinated individuals.

“From here, the plandemic scam proceeds like clockwork: People get sick from the vaccines, so more vaccine boosters are demanded, which perpetuates the illness. Rinse and repeat. It never ends until the perpetrators are arrested and people wise up to the scam.

“The CDC has just published a science document that confirms the entire scam. Click here to view the PDF on our servers.
“It’s entitled, ‘Outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 Infections, Including COVID-19-19 Vaccine Breakthrough Infections, Associated with Large Public Gatherings — Barnstable County, Massachusetts, July 2021’ and it shockingly admits that 74% of infections occurred in fully vaccinated (double dose) people…vaccination coverage among eligible Massachusetts residents was 69%. Approximately three quarters (346; 74%) of cases occurred in fully vaccinated persons (those who had completed a 2-dose course of mRNA vaccine [Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna] or had received a single dose of Janssen [Johnson & Johnson] 14 days before exposure).

“See, the vaccine is the pandemic. The vaccine is spreading the spike protein, and the fake PCR tests provide the fuel to keep the mass hysteria going.”

Bill Lockwood: Creating Suffering by Means of Law 4 (2)

by Bill Lockwood

As I write, tens of thousands of Haitians are encamped under a bridge in Del Rio, TX. The numbers of these invaders increases so rapidly that I avoid putting a number on the thousands that are there, knowing that by the time this article is posted it will have swelled further. At the invitation of the Biden Administration they have trespassed into our nation, expecting more unconstitutional distribution of American taxpayer funding.

Last month more than 200,000 people crossed into the United States illegally. Taxpayers are funding the re-location of these invaders, ala the Biden Administration. Predictably, many of these are disease-carrying that threaten our citizens. “What’s coming over into the US could harm everyone,” a Texas Border Patrol agent warns. “We are starting to see scabies, chicken pox, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections, and different viruses.” There are now credible reports of leprosy among the crowds and TB is growing globally.

But it matters not. The borders are wide open to the world under Joe Biden and obviously, these immigrants are not masked and do not have the COVID shots. No, these are the draconian measures the Democrats want American citizens to observe.

This is suffering to the American citizen on a number of fronts—by means of law—or lawmakers who ignore the law.

BLM

Marxist-oriented Democratic-supported Black Lives Matter has left a number of American cities in smoldering ruins from the 600-plus violent riots last year. This was a government-sponsored “protest” that included members of Congress. Huge corporations such as Airbnb, Cisco, IBM, Microsoft, Reddit, Snap, Amazon, Gatorade, Nabisco, and many others also donated huge chunks of cash to the anti-American cause.

Political leaders such as VP Kamala Harris even assisted in bailing out the rioters and violence-mongers so that they can loot some more. Concurrently, a huge movement to Defund the Police has gripped major cities such as Minneapolis, Baltimore, and Seattle. This is sponsored, once again, by the Majority Party in Washington, D.C.

That all of this is one-sided, consider the following.

Across the aisle, there is an Iron Muzzle on the “J6” (January 6) Trump-supporting protestors from earlier this year. These were treated differently. Not only did the Capitol Police invite many people into the building and many of those people wandered through peacefully and left again, causing minimal damage, but there is reason to believe that many of the people attending the rally on January 6 were provocateurs, whether from the FBI or Antifa or BLM, “intentionally trying to destroy conservatives.” Some of these are held or have been charged on no more grounds than that of “parading” on Capitol grounds.

Psalm 94: The God of Redress

In the face of a clear multi-tiered justice system in America, tilted to favor radicals and liberals, Psalm 94 speaks of the helpless victims of such corruption. “There is a sense in which they are by definition powerless and helpless.” The psalmist complains about eminent, powerful, important people—because they are faithless (v 2-3). Their faithlessness expresses itself in the way they treat ordinary people—ignoring the real needs of its citizens, while seeking to muzzle conservative opposition. How long with the faithless exult, Yahweh, … they crush your people, Yahweh, they put down your very own (v. 4-5).

The psalmist calls these governing officials “brutes” (v. 8). The question is asked of these, “When will you show some insight?!” Though it does not look like the “brutes” that run our country will come to reality any time soon, the comforting thought is that God notices! (v. 9-15).

God is the one who “disciplines nations” (v. 10). He does “not forsake his people, He does not abandon His very own” (v. 14). Political leaders “are stupid to make [the] assumption about Yahweh’s lack of interest in what is going on in the world.” He will not ignore the situation. Sometimes, however, it may look differently “in the short term” though oppression of the godly will not last in the long run. Authority will eventually “return to its proper basis”—God-given liberties. And then people will be able to “support the government rather than protesting it.”

The highlight comes at v. 20. Can the throne that brings destruction [unjust governments] ally with You [God]? Someone who creates suffering by means of law? That is, frequently, governments themselves, instead of enforcing law to protect its citizens, actually “create suffering” by their unjust laws. This causes in us “anxiety” (v. 19)—but God is our Rock of Refuge (v. 22). God will settle it all.
