    NORC at the University of Chicago

    On March 1st, 2021 I received an official letter from the Department of Health and Human Services stating that, "You have been selected to participate in a fifteen minute interview regarding your experiences receiving health care services during the COVID-19 pandemic."

    This interview was to be conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago. After researching this organization, I decided not to cooperate with them because I got the distinct impression they are actively supporting the globalist agenda.

    Then, on March 31, 2021, I received another letter from the Director of the DHHS insisting that I participate in this survey in such a way as not to appear to be threatening, but in such a way that I might reconsider my decision due to apprehension. Nevertheless, in spite of their subtle scare tactic, I still have no intention to cooperate with them.

    Although they now claim NORC is not an acronym, but a name, the following article reveals it stands for National Opinion Research Center:

    Their official site:

    NORC is a contemporary continuation of social science being used to collect and collate various kinds of information to further the globalist agenda.

    "Data from surveys are also often analyzed in a wide range of social sciences, especially sociology. NORC is best known for its large, national surveys, but has also conducted qualitative and quantitative analyses, longitudinal analyses, methodological studies, and international projects."

    Don’t want a vaccine? Tough luck, says the European Court of Human Rights



    For the first time ever, the ECHR has weighed in on the issue of compulsory vaccinations. And the ruling has major implications for those hoping to avoid their Covid jab.


    In a decision bound to generate controversy, the European Court of Human Rights on Thursday ruled against several Czech families who had refused to give their children compulsory vaccinations. The parents had appealed against fines they had received, as well as the children’s exclusion from preschool. The ruling was not on Covid vaccines, but rather on vaccines for nine diseases compulsory for children under Czech law including measles, diphtheria and hepatitis B. The judges voted by a majority of 16 to one that there had been ‘’no violation’’ of Article 8, the right to respect for private life.


    The court stated that because ‘’in the Czech Republic the vaccination duty was strongly supported by the relevant medical authorities’’, and in order to ‘’guard against any downward trend in the rate of vaccination among children’’, excluding the children from preschool had in this case been “necessary in a democratic society”. This was in spite of what the court called ‘’the loss of an important opportunity to develop their personalities’’. The court also remarked that the children were later allowed to enter primary school despite being unvaccinated.



    A wicked problem

    Mandatory vaccination is one of the thorniest issues in all of medical ethics, and there is certainly no obvious solution. The dilemma comes from the fact that some vaccines do not only (or sometimes even primarily) protect oneself, but contribute to herd immunity, and thereby protect the entire population. The ECHR cited the protection of others as the main justification for the exclusion of the Czech children from preschool.


    It is true that there is a sense in which an unvaccinated person, when it comes to diseases like measles or polio, is ‘’piggy-backing’’ on the herd immunity generated by the majority. Some say this is not fair to the majority who fall into line, and bear the (usually small) risk of side effects on behalf of the unvaccinated. But others would argue that the unvaccinated in a vaccinated population do no harm, and also, do not pressurise others into any medical decisions.


    There is also the issue of the inalienable right of every person to refuse medical treatment. It is considered one of the most fundamental rights, concerning bodily autonomy and, in the case of developing genetic therapies, our essential nature itself. Moreover, it is easy to point to examples,
    historical, dystopian and ongoing, of why the right to refuse medicine is so important.



    An example of vaccines that do not protect the receiver at all is the recent push in Ireland to give schoolboys a preventative jab for cervical cancer, called the HPV vaccine. Males obviously cannot get cervical cancer, but they can sexually transmit the human papillomavirus to females who could then, if left untreated, contract it. Is it fair to expect girls to shoulder the vaccination burden alone? Perhaps not… but every mass vaccination programme bears a risk of severe side effects, and all public health decisions have costs and benefits.


    Forced Covid jabs?

    The timing being what it is, it is difficult not to draw conclusions on what this precedent means for Covid vaccines. Until now there has been little suggestion in most countries that Covid jabs will be mandatory. The ECHR’s ruling does in theory mean, though, that European countries could force their citizens to take Covid vaccines on the basis of achieving herd immunity. As long as the punitive measures taken against refuseniks are ‘’proportionate’’.


    This judgment could fuel the flames of the controversy in Europe on Covid jabs, which so far has centred mainly on so-called vaccine passports. Their rollout has been all but confirmed for all kinds of public places and events, as well as for international travel. While technically there would be no ‘’punishment’’ for not taking the jab, vaccine passports essentially discriminate against the unvaccinated by excluding them from things to which they could freely go before Covid. It is easy to see how with moral grey areas like this, separating ‘’punishment’’ from ‘’privilege’’ quickly becomes a game of semantics.



    New abnormal

    The ruling of the ECHR against the Czech families may once have been shocking, but in the current climate, it is hardly surprising. The assurances and guarantees to choose their own medical treatments many people had assumed would protect them under law turned out not to have been as rock steady as they thought.


    I have made no case for or against Covid vaccines here, but I will say that it was not so long ago when politicians assured us that there would never be any undue pressure put on people to take them. Fast forward a few months and vaccine passports look like a nailed-on feature of the new normal, there never having been a proper debate on the matter.



    True, there are always some lonely voices who raise concerns, but in the face of the vast silence of the political and media classes on the matter, it is just howling into the void. Everything is beginning to take on an air of inevitability, and the course of the next few months looks, at least in some aspects, increasingly predictable. Somehow, that is more frightening to me than an unknown future.



    This is against UN - Unesco resolution, article 6. It is free to download from their website. Document entitled: Universal declaration on bioethics and human rights. All state members signed this resolution. Article 6 says: "Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information. The consent should, where appropriate, be express and may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason without disadvantage or prejudice. "


    The (((corporations))) running governments could not care less about regulations. (((They))) make the regulations. Only when people start po**ing BBanksters and CEOs things will improve.


    There is no proof whatsoever that the vaccines are effective, other than the claims of the governments and big pharma. What they are doing is, using the world as an open air laboratory to test their hastily concocted doses of chemicals on unsuspecting non-thinking people to get rid of "useless eaters", and to make unending quantities of money supported by complicit governments, to then use the outcome to fabricate new and better vaccines that then may or may not work, but in any case always forking huge amounts of profits guaranteed by governments creating a preconceived narrative for the masses of unthinking citizens.


    You are overlooking the possibility that the Covid virus was manufactured and released as a biological weapon against poor people, by the rich people. Rockefeller & Gates have been talking for years about population control through vaccines.

    Fake COVID vaccination cards are spreading like a virus online



    A black market in fake vaccination record cards is reaching epidemic proportions online.

    Fraudsters have been hawking knock-offs of the three-by-four-inch cards on retail sites including eBay, Etsy and Shopify, as well as on the social media sites Facebook and TikTok, the New York Times reported this week.

    The Post, meanwhile, has found dozens of online DIY guides for printing fake vaccination cards at home.

    The counterfeiting has ballooned in recent weeks following news that an official vaccination card could soon become a central requirement to travel on airplanes and attend events.

    And sellers and buyer are breaking federal law by falsifying vaccine documents and fraudulently reproducing the Center Centers for Disease Control and Prevention logo, which is featured on every card’s upper right hand corner.

    In warning that counterfeiters risk prosecution, the Federal Bureau of Investigation advises, “if you did not receive the vaccine, do not buy fake vaccine cards, do not make your own vaccine cards, and do not fill-in blank vaccination record cards with false information.”

    “We recommend you do not post photos of your vaccine card to social media websites,” the site warns.

    According to Saoud Khalifah, the founder of Fakespot, which offers data analysis to help detect counterfeit items online, scammers have also been selling fraudulent vaccine stamps.

    “People post, ‘Do you want the Moderna or do you want the Pfizer stamp?'” he told The Post.

    “The card dictates where you can go and what you can do,” he said.

    “Some people might not want the vaccine, but they want to go somewhere. So they’ll buy this fake vaccine card with a fake stamp and trick their way through the system. It’s a shame.”

    Meanwhile, 46 attorneys general have demanded that Twitter, eBay, and Shopify take “immediate” action to monitor their platforms and “promptly” take down posts selling fake cards.

    In a statement to The Post, global marketplace Etsy said they “were removing posts that advertised the items.”

    And eBay told The Post the company is “taking significant measures to block or quickly remove items” that make false health claims or can be used to “falsely represent a person has received the vaccine.”

    As of December, eBay has removed or blocked approximately 50 million listings that have violated their policies related to COVID-19, ranging from price-gouging toilet paper and disinfectant wipes to items that made false medical claims.

    40K US children have lost a parent to COVID-19, study finds



    As many as 43,000 US children 17 or younger have already lost at least one of their parents to the deadly COVID-19 pandemic, according to a newly released study.

    As of February, the report in the Journal of the American Medical Association said the toll on kids from the virus has been significant — and has “disproportionally affected” black children.

    “The number of children experiencing a parent dying of COVID-19 is staggering, with an estimated 37,300 to 43,000 already affected,” the study, published in JAMA last week, said.

    “For comparison, the attacks on September 11, 2001, left 30,000 children without a parent,” it said. “The burden will grow heavier as the death toll continues to mount.”

    The study, led by Stony Brook University researcher Rachel Kidman, found that black children, who make up 14 percent of the US population, account for 20 percent of children who have lost a parent.

    “Sweeping national reforms are needed to address health, educational, and economic fallout affecting children,” the report argued. “Parentally bereaved children will also need targeted support to help with grief, particularly during this period of heightened social isolation.”

    There have been more than 31 million confirmed cases of the virus the US — and nearly 562,000 dead from the virus, according to Johns Hopkins University.

    Fauci ‘not sure’ why Texas doesn’t have COVID uptick after nixing masks



    It’s been some five weeks since Texas lifted its mask mandate, and there has yet to be an explosion of COVID-19 cases.

    It’s something Dr. Anthony Fauci can’t quite explain.

    “I’m not really quite sure,” he told MSNBC this week. “It could be they’re doing things outdoors.”

    Daily cases in Texas hovered above 7,000 in early March, when Gov. Greg Abbott lifted the state’s mask rules, leaving it up to individuals and organizations to make their own decisions.

    Now, according to the Centers for Disease Control, new cases of COVID-19 are under 4,000.

    Fauci noted there can be a delay in how and when cases manifest.

    “Often you have to wait a few weeks before you see the effect of what you’re doing right now,” he said.

    “I hope they continue to tick down. If they do, that would be great but there’s always the concern when you pull back on methods — particularly on things like indoor dining and bars that are crowded — you could see a delay and then all of a sudden tick right back up,” he said.

    “We’ve been fooled before by situations where people begin to open back up. Nothing happens and then all of a sudden several weeks later things explode on you, so we’ve got to be careful we don’t prematurely judge that,” he added.

    President Biden had slammed the decision to ease the state’s mask mandate as “neanderthal thinking.”

    More Gaslighting.... Impossible to assess real cause of death, but call it COVID, which CAN NOT be proven in the first place.

    Just shut-up and wear a mask! Stay away from other people! You are non-essential! Take the vaccine! Or else we will make life as you once knew it a living Hell!

    The lofty elite, their "experts", and their political lackeys, clearly don't respect our individual rights to self-determination, freedom of choice, and freedom of association. They are making mandates based on ultimatums that clearly infringe on individual liberty. Coercion is the new game in town. And average citizens are rapidly losing their right to say NO to these evil tyrants.




    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    Couch potatoes are more than twice as likely to die from COVID-19: study



    Couch potatoes beware! Being sedentary more than doubles the risk of dying from COVID-19, according to new research.

    A study on the effect of exercise on 48,440 patients diagnosed from Jan. 1 to Oct. 21, 2020, concluded that inactivity was the third-biggest risk factor for severe illness — worse than heart disease, diabetes or smoking, eurekalert.org reports.

    The results, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, found that coronavirus patients who were consistently inactive had 1.73 times greater odds of ICU admission than those who were consistently active.

    The odds for death were even higher — with consistently inactive patients 2.49 times more likely to die from COVID-19 compared with patients who were consistently active.

    “This is a wake-up call for the importance of healthy lifestyles and especially physical activity,” said Dr. Robert Sallis, a physician at the Kaiser Permanente Fontana Medical Center.

    “Kaiser Permanente’s motivation is to keep people healthy, and this study truly shows how important that is during this pandemic and beyond. People who regularly exercise had the best chance of beating COVID-19, while people who were inactive did much worse,” he added.

    The study, led by researchers at Kaiser Permanente Southern California, also found that even patients who were inconsistently active had lower odds of becoming severely ill — suggesting that any amount of activity is beneficial.

    To reach their conclusions, researchers gathered data on how many days those studied engaged in moderate to strenuous exercise each week and, on average, how many minutes they engage in exercise at that level.

    The subjects — 62 percent of whom were female and whose median age was 47 — reflected the diverse racial makeup of the Southern California population.

    Of the total, 6.4 percent were consistently active and 14.4 percent were consistently inactive, with the rest falling in the category of inconsistently active.

    Among all of the patients, 8.6 percent were hospitalized, 2.4 percent were admitted to the ICU and 1.6 percent died.

    “What surprised me the most from this study was the strength of the association between inactivity and poor outcomes from COVID-19,” said co-author Deborah Rohm Young, PhD, of the Kaiser Permanente Southern California Department of Research & Evaluation.

    “Even after we included variables such as obesity and smoking in the analysis, we still saw inactivity was strongly associated with much higher odds of hospitalization, ICU admission, and death compared with moderate physical activity or any activity at all,” she added.

    Sallis offered a simple prescription.

    “Walk 30 minutes a day, five days a week at a moderate pace and that will give you a tremendous protective effect against COVID-19,” he said.

    “I continue to believe that exercise is medicine that everyone should take — especially in this era of COVID-19.”

    ......
    That should not come as a surprise (regardless of what you think about "the Virus" or "the pandemic").
    What was one of the major "measures" supposedly against "the pandemic" and to "flatten the curve"?
    Right, lockdowns, forcing people to stay at home and subsequently becoming less active, being less outside at the fresh air and probably also doing less beneficial and more harmful stuff during that period. Now why would one make people do things that are detrimental to their health, if the stated goal is to "flatten" the curve?

    ‘Close to catastrophe’: How Covid-19 is affecting other healthcare in Sweden



    Several regions in Sweden have been forced to postpone planned healthcare while one in three currently have a "crisis deal" in place meaning up to 12-hour shifts for ICU staff as the pandemic once again puts severe pressure on hospitals and their workers.

    At Thursday’s press conference, the National Board of Health and Welfare said that nationwide there were 386 Covid-19 patients being treated in intensive care wards, the same level as the peak of the second wave. At the same time, higher pressure on intensive care wards from people with other illnesses means that the total number of patients in ICUs is close to the level during spring 2020.

    As of Friday, one of three regions had a so-called “crisis deal” activated, which means some staff may need to work shifts of up to 12 hours and makes it more possible for patients to be transferred to other regions due to full capacity. This is currently in place in Stockholm, Jönköping, Västerbotten, Uppsala, Gävleborg, and Dalarna, according to SKR, the umbrella organisation for Sweden’s regions and municipalities.

    “Now patients are coming directly to the intensive care unit from home. Young people who are otherwise completely healthy now become seriously ill very quickly,” said Norrbotten healthcare chief Per Berglund when the region’s crisis deal was activated.

    Both Stockholm and Örebro have over 170 percent occupancy in ICUs compared to normal levels, with ten of Sweden’s 21 regions at more than 125 percent of normal capacity.

    In Uppsala, where all residents have been urged to go into a “personal lockdown” to curb the spread of the third wave, healthcare chiefs have warned of the severity of the situation at a press briefing.

    “There is more pressure on the healthcare sector now than there has been at any point [of the pandemic],” said Fredrik Sund, head of the infection clinic at Uppsala University Hospital.

    “If this continues, there are not many more resources left,” he told Sweden’s public radio broadcaster. “We are beginning to come close to catastrophe.”

    Among other measures, healthcare staff have been “loaned” from public and private doctor’s offices to help with Covid-19 care at Uppsala’s main hospital, for the third time during the pandemic.

    It comes a week after the region announced it was postponing “more or less all planned care than is not vital”.

    Planned healthcare has been postponed in several other regions in recent weeks, while regions are already dealing with a “healthcare debt” due to planned care that was postponed during previous waves of the pandemic. In the southern region of Blekinge, certain planned operations were postponed for at least two weeks on Thursday, to free up resources for intensive care wards.
