    Alarm as German anti-maskers co-opt Nazi resister Sophie Scholl



    Sophie Scholl, the German resistance figure executed by the Nazis who was born 100 years ago on Sunday, has become an emblem of courage and a national hero for many.

    But the legacy of the young woman sentenced to a brutal death for distributing anti-Nazi pamphlets has recently been co-opted by Germany’s anti-lockdown movement, to the dismay of historians and the Jewish community.

    At a demonstration in April, one woman had a placard featuring a picture of Sophie Scholl draped on string around her shoulders.

    “The real damage is done by those millions who want to ‘survive.’ The honest men who just want to be left in peace,” it read — words famously pronounced by the resistance campaigner.

    Even one of her nephews, Julian Aicher, has prominently spoken at corona skeptic demonstrations, including on a stage decorated with white roses — evoking the name of Scholl’s resistance group.

    In a country where right-wing extremism is seen as the number one threat to security, and where a record number of xenophobic and anti-Semitic crimes were recorded in 2020, historians say the misappropriation of Scholl’s memory is deeply alarming.

    Some also warn that democracy itself is being attacked at a time when living witnesses of World War II have dwindled significantly in numbers.

    “By trivialising the Holocaust and dictatorship, these activists are endangering democracy,” said Ludwig Spaenle, Bavaria’s anti-Semitism commissioner.

    Fourth favourite German

    On February 22, 1943, Scholl and her older brother Hans, both members of a small resistance group called the White Rose, were beheaded in the Stadelheim prison in Bavaria following a summary trial.

    They had been found guilty of distributing pamphlets on the grounds of Munich University, having converted to the resistance after being exposed to the horrors of the Third Reich as members of Nazi organisations in their teens.

    Sophie Scholl, born on May 9, 1921, has become the most famous face of the resistance movement, with surviving photos showing her distinctive cropped hair and determined smile.

    Hundreds of schools and streets now bear her name, and in 2003 she was named the nation’s fourth favourite German behind Konrad Adenauer, Martin Luther and Karl Marx.

    The country’s political class also like to evoke the memory of the young biology student who stood up to the Nazis.

    Annalena Baerbock, the Green party’s candidate to become Germany’s next chancellor after Angela Merkel retires in the autumn, has named Scholl as one of her “heroes”.

    Carola Rackete, the former captain of the Sea-Watch 3 migrant rescue ship, has said if Scholl were still alive, she would be part of the Antifa left-wing political movement.

    But at the other end of the political spectrum, the far-right AfD also claimed in 2017 that Scholl would have given them her vote.

    And now the resistance campaigner’s image has been hijacked by protesters against coronavirus restrictions in Germany, who have often sought to compare themselves with victims of the Nazis.

    ‘Vaccination makes you free’

    Some protesters have been seen wearing yellow stars similar to those Jews were forced to wear under the Nazis, carrying the words “not vaccinated”.

    Others have worn concentration camp uniforms and carried placards with the words “Impfen macht frei” (“Vaccination makes you free”), a reference to the “Arbeit macht frei” (“Work makes you free”) inscription at the entrance to Auschwitz.

    “I feel like Sophie Scholl, because I’ve been active in the resistance for months,” one protester told a rally against virus restrictions in Hanover in November, leading to widespread condemnation.

    “Followers of conspiracy theories like to imagine themselves as victims, while demonising and delegitimising the democratic field,” Samuel Salzborn, the city of Berlin’s point man on anti-Semitism, told AFP.

    According to Jens-Christian Wagner, a German historian who specialises in the Nazi era, the appropriation of Sophie Scholl by the anti-mask movement shows a loss of “historical awareness” among parts of the German population.

    There are “almost no remaining witnesses” to the Nazi era, Wagner told AFP.

    “They can no longer defend themselves when they are instrumentalised or when the far right rewrites history and the present by reversing guilt. It worries me,” he said.

    Germany’s domestic intelligence agency has said it will monitor the “Querdenker” (Lateral Thinkers) movement, a particularly vocal anti-lockdown group, over concerns it poses a threat to democracy and has ties to right-wing extremism.

    Swedish tourists unwelcome in Denmark and Norway: poll



    People living in Denmark and Norway are more opposed to receiving tourists from neighbouring Sweden than they are to those from any other country in Europe -- underlining the blow Covid-19 has dealt to Scandinavian solidarity.

    According to the new Coronavirus and Tourism survey from the polling company YouGov, 73 percent of Norwegians and 61 percent of Danes opposed quarantine-free entry to Swedish tourists.

    Indeed, the two countries' citizens were only slightly less suspicious of their Swedish neighbours than they were of tourists from the United States, who were opposed by 77 percent and 69 percent of respondents, respectively.

    “While Scandinavians are still reluctant to allow in British tourists, they are more preoccupied by Swedish holidaymakers,” wrote Matthew Smith, the company's lead data journalist, in a press release.

    “Sweden,” he wrote, “is unique among developed countries for having not instituted a coronavirus lockdown, and the consequently higher case rates are clearly making its neighbours nervous.”

    The public opposition may part explain why the governments of both Denmark and Norway are still refusing to allow most Swedish tourists into the country.

    Both countries have said they will allow entry to Swedish tourists from regions where the rate of coronavirus infections is sufficiently low, with Denmark allowing tourists from Västerbotten, Kronoberg and Blekinge, and Norway judging that infection rates are too high in every region of Sweden.

    While Denmark has otherwise opened up to tourists from every country in the European Union apart from Portugal, Norway only plans to open up to tourists from outside the Nordic nations from July 15th, with a list of 'safe' countries to be published on Friday July 10th.

    Even people from Britain, where the death rate from coronavirus has been higher than in Sweden, oppose Swedish tourists, with 53 percent telling the pollster that they were against allowing Swedish tourists to come to the UK without quarantine, more than opposed allowing entry to any other European country.

    It is perhaps fortunate that Swedes are anyway relatively nervous about travelling, with 44 percent saying they would not want to go on holiday to Norway because of Covid-19, and 45 percent saying they would not want to go on holiday to Denmark.

    The next least welcome tourists from the perspective of Danes and Norwegians were British ones, which were opposed by 67 percent and 55 percent.

    The poll was based on a weighted sample of citizens of ten countries, including 1,006 from Norway, 1,023 from Denmark and 1,012 from Sweden.

    Some Swedish care homes have had no cases of Covid-19 – what did they do right?



    At least 234 of Sweden's 290 municipalities have elderly care homes with confirmed or suspected coronavirus cases. But a handful seem to have been able to protect residents from Covid-19, in some cases despite staff being infected. So what did they do differently, and could their strategies be applies elsewhere?

    “I think the debate on the flaws in elderly care has been lacking nuance. I don't think there have been sufficient efforts to try to describe the underlying reasons for why the spread of infection has been great in different regions. There are almost 60 municipalities which have had better success,” Ebba Gierow, head of social affairs in the Ale municipality, told the TT newswire.

    This is one of the municipalities which by late June had not recorded any cases of coronavirus in its five municipal care homes.

    Ale is located in Västra Götaland, a region where the spread arrived later and more slowly than for example Stockholm – partly due to the timing of spring school holidays in both regions.

    Gierow said that this meant care homes in Västra Götaland had the chance to improve their hygiene routines and make sure that all employees who showed symptoms stayed at home, two of the factors that have long been identified by authorities as decisive in limiting the spread.

    Equipment

    Beyond this proactive attitude, another tangible factor which has helped certain care homes in preventing or slowing down the spread of the coronavirus in their facilities has been the access to protective clothing.

    Gierow explained that Ale decided that “they couldn't sit around and wait for national channels to provide us with equipment”.

    Instead, they immediately drove to construction warehouses and other stores to stock up on equipment, and continually kept stock to ensure their supplies would not run out and source more protective clothing.

    Accessing protective equipment when it was in such high demand not only in Sweden but internationally was one of the major challenges for the care sector.

    Greger Bengtsson, head of elderly care at the umbrella association for Sweden's municipalities and regions (SKR), told The Local that “we knew we should protect staff and residents, but we didn't have the necessary materials”, which instead went to Sweden's hospitals in the first instance.

    “Not until about a month ago did care homes start to receive adequate supplies,” Bengtsson said.

    And in Ale, the investment in protective equipment was not only a way to keep staff and residents safe, but also to boost perceived safety.

    “It was a challenge, but protective equipment gives a feeling of security. You can't expect staff to go out and do their job well if they're scared. We put a lot of money into this in Ale. We did an evaluation and decided that was the right thing to do,” she said.

    A recent report published by SKR on the situation in care facilities stated that more equipment is not always the best option. For example, certain high grade face masks have valves which mean that, while the wearer is protected, their exhaled air is released unfiltered into their surroundings. Infected but asymptomatic staff wearing this kind of mask could therefore put elderly residents at increased risk.

    Another problem was that funds varied between municipalities, so in early April SKR began acting as a purchaser on behalf of all Sweden's municipalities, as a way to ensure it could act on the world market and ensure equipment was distributed where needed.

    Early visitor bans

    According to Bengtsson, another major obstacle in protecting care home residents was legislation.

    It was only on April 1st that the government declared a visitors' ban for all municipal care homes. Some municipalities had prohibited visits days or even weeks earlier. This meant they may have broken the law on accessibility of these facilities, which are intended to be an open part of society, but in doing so they may have saved lives.

    One of the quickest to act, Luleĺ, which banned visits on March 20th, has cited this as a factor behind the municipality reporting only one care home death from Covid-19. And the Skĺne region, where 85 percent of homes reported no infection at all, introduced a visitor ban 10-12 days before the national one.

    However, this was only one of several measures in Skĺne which may have had an effect, with others including more widespread testing of staff and residents in care homes than other regions, multilingual information campaigns about the coronavirus from an early stage, and a deal which means specialised hygiene nurses hired by the region work in care homes.

    Fewer hourly staff

    Another factor which has repeatedly surfaced in the debate on how the virus spread in Sweden's care homes so quickly is the high proportion of temporary staff, who often work in multiple facilities. On hourly contracts, these workers were not protected by extended sick pay legislation, which may have given them less incentive to follow national guidelines in staying home if showing the slightest cold or flu symptoms.

    A relatively low proportion of hourly workers is a factor common to Ale and other municipalities which have not reported any cases of coronavirus, including Stenungssund and Alingsĺs. However, it's hard to assess the direct impact of this, partly because in the hard hit care homes, it's almost impossible to know how the infection entered the facility and spread.

    Speaking to reporters in early May, the Public Health Agency's Head of the Department for Antibiotics and Infection Control Malin Grape said there was no clear common factor that pointed to how the infection got into affected care homes in Stockholm and Sörmland.

    Some of the possibilities the Public Health Agency has pointed to after speaking with care homes include new arrivals to the homes or residents returning from hospital stays, family visits, or asymptomatic staff, as well as a high proportion of hourly workers.

    It is not possible to pinpoint the exact actions that determined why some municipalities avoided outbreaks in their care homes – and luck will have played some part.

    But in order to give staff the necessary support and training, provide the right equipment in sufficient quantities, and take further measures as needed to protect staff and residents, quick reaction and adaptation to a fast-moving and unprecedented situation was essential. That can only come from an engaged leadership.

    In Ale, Gierow says the strategy was hands-on from the start.

    “Managers have worked with a close leadership. They've spent a lot of time on the ground, answering questions, supporting staff and simply being around,” she said. “This provides support and security, which means a lot for staff being able to manage” with the pressure of protecting the most vulnerable group in society from the virus.

    I'm sure the Scholl-story would also turn out to be a bit different under scrutiny (Where exactly did they have that supposedly profound knowledge expressed in their pamphlets?).
    It's also clear that she is a cult figure. And an interested group wants to decide on who may use her (or rather the mythical figure) and how that may or may not be done (does that remind you of religion? Well, that's because it is in terms of social psychology and behavioural adjustment).

    Other cult words: Holocaust, democracy, dictatorship. How they get the Holo into this, is of course an interesting question, not even they would be able to answer. Well, they have an "Anti-semitism Commissioner" - Do they also have an Anti-Gentilism Commissioner?
    Because that's what's really necessary nowadays:

    While we are at it:
    The mandatory masking, hand washing, social distancing also have the character of cultic performances to via the Pandemic-Excuse ordinary folks are compelled in their daily lives.

    Deadly Prion Brain Diseases & Experimental mRNA Covid-19 Vaccines: Study Finds Plausible Link



    The study abstract, well worth reading, summarizes both the context, intention, and results of the investigation:

    “Development of new vaccine technology has been plagued with problems in the past. The current RNA based SARSCoV-2 vaccines were approved in the US using an emergency order without extensive long term safety testing. In this paper the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was evaluated for the potential to induce prion-based disease in vaccine recipients. The RNA sequence of the vaccine as well as the spike protein target interaction were analyzed for the potential to convert intracellular RNA binding proteins TAR DNA binding protein (TDP-43) and Fused in Sarcoma (FUS) into their pathologic prion conformations. The results indicate that the vaccine RNA has specific sequences that may induce TDP-43 and FUS to fold into their pathologic prion confirmations. In the current analysis a total of sixteen UG tandem repeats (ΨGΨG) were identified and additional UG (ΨG) rich sequences were identified. Two GGΨA sequences were found. Potential G Quadruplex sequences are possibly present but a more sophisticated computer program is needed to verify these. Furthermore, the spike protein, created by the translation of the vaccine RNA, binds angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), a zinc containing enzyme. This interaction has the potential to increase intracellular zinc. Zinc ions have been shown to cause the transformation of TDP-43 to its pathologic prion configuration. The folding of TDP-43 and FUS into their pathologic prion confirmations is known to cause ALS, front temporal lobar degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological degenerative diseases. The enclosed finding as well as additional potential risks leads the author to believe that regulatory approval of the RNA based vaccines for SARS-CoV-2 was premature and that the vaccine may cause much more harm than benefit.”

    As you can see above, the author is clearly concerned about the fact that the novel mRNA-based Covid-19 vaccines presently being deployed to hundreds of millions within the US, and around the world, have both been plagued by problems in the past, and are presently being allowed to bypass proper safety and efficacy testing normally required for FDA approval, through an Emergency Use Authorization enacted on Feb 4th, 2020, which indemnifed manufacturers from liability, and which was made possible through the declaration of national health emergency (now known to be based on faulty disease modeling, Covid death statistics, and faulty PCR-based Covid case numbers) and the emergency medical powers invoked, thereof.

    Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (CJD), also known as neurocognitive disorder or subacute spongiform encephalopathy is due to prion disease, a rapidly progressing and highly fatal degenerative brain disorder

    The research, therefore, sought to evaluate and identify the possibility that one of the unintended, adverse effects of the vaccines (specifically, the Pfizer vaccine) may be that either the synthetic nucleoside-mRNA sequence chosen for these vaccines or the spike protein target interaction following their administration may result in the pathological misfolding of proteins normally present in cells, transforming them into what are known as prions — which can lead to rapid and highly lethal brain degeneration related disorders. [To learn more about prion diseases, you can get a summary at the PrionAlliance.com website]

    The research uncovered that, indeed, a plausible mechanism for mRNA Covid-19-induced prion formation exists, namely, “the folding of TDP-43 and FUS into their pathologic prion confirmations is known to cause ALS, front temporal lobar degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological degenerative diseases.”

    The study points that previous research has been done that indicates there is a link between COVID-19 vaccines and prion disease:

    “Finally, others working in the field have published additional support that COVID-19 vaccines could potentially induce prion disease. Authors [18] found prion related sequences in the COVID-19 spike protein which were not found in related coronaviruses. Others [19] have reported a case of prion disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, initially occurring in a man with COVID-19.”

    The author also states in the introduction that concerns about long-term adverse health effects of vaccines are not new, even when vaccines have been approved through normal, long-term trials (~10-15 years) and have passed regulatory approval by the FDA:

    “Vaccines have been found to cause a host of chronic, late developing adverse events. Some adverse events like type 1 diabetes may not occur until 3-4 years after a vaccine is administered [1]. In the example of type 1 diabetes the frequency of cases of adverse events may surpass the frequency of cases of severe infectious disease the vaccine was designed to prevent. Given that type 1 diabetes is only one of many immune mediated diseases potentially caused by vaccines, chronic late occurring adverse events are a serious public health issue.”

    The advent of new vaccine technology creates new potential mechanisms of vaccine adverse events. For example, the first killed polio vaccine actually caused polio in recipients because the up scaled manufacturing process did not effectively kill the polio virus before it was injected into patients. RNA based vaccines offers special risks of inducing specific adverse events.

    One such potential adverse event is prion based diseases caused by activation of intrinsic proteins to form prions. A wealth of knowledge has been published on a class of RNA binding proteins shown to participating in causing a number of neurological diseases including Alzheimer’s disease and ALS. TDP-43 and FUS are among the best studied of these proteins .


    The Pfizer RNA based COVID-19 vaccine was approved by the US FDA under an emergency use authorization without long term safety data. Because of concerns about the safety of this vaccine a study was performed to determine if the vaccine could potentially induce prion based disease.” [emphasis added]

    Infants do not have a functioning immune system, instead they get their antibodies etc. from the mother through the milk. Whatever infection the mother is fighting, antibodies against it is secreted into the milk. So if a nursing mother gets a vaccine, whatever antibodies she is producing as a result go into the baby's stomach.

    Belgium: “34% of Covid patients in hospital in their 40s and 50s”



    Steven Van Gucht, head of viral diseases at the Belgian science health institute Sciensano, says that though the figures on hospitalisations linked to coronavirus continue to move in the right direction, the fall in the number of new Covid cases has weakened.

    Prof Van Gucht was speaking at the news conference of the Belgian crisis centre.

    “We’ve noticed that during the past seven days the number of recorded cases remains stable and has reached a plateau of just under 3,000 cases a days. It looks like we will stay more or less around this figure in coming days.”

    “We have noticed more cases among children, but we have also witnessed an increase in testing. Last week on average 51,000 tests were carried out each day. That’s up 8% on the week. The percentage of positive results continues to fall and has reached 6.5%. That is positive.”

    “We have seen an increasingly positive impact on hospitalisations and deaths thanks to the vaccination campaign. Among over 80s the number of hospitalisations has decreased markedly. Hospitalisations among people in their 40s and 50s are on the increase. This group represents 34% of hospitalisations.”

    The number of beds occupied by Covid patients continue to decrease: “If the downward trend continues at this pace, around 500 beds in intensive care will be occupied by Covid patients at the end f May. That’s an important figure with regard to relaxation of Covid restrictions.”

    Science Journals Support Claim that Pfizer Covid Vaccine May Cause Deadly Neurodegenerative Disease



    By Janet Phelan

    A recent article published in the scientific journal Microbiology and Infectious Diseases makes the claim that the mRNA Pfizer Covid vaccine may contain prions which cause deadly neurodegenerative disease, sometimes called “Creutzfeldt-Jakob” or “Mad Cow” disease. The article, titled “COVID-19 RNA Based Vaccines and the Risk of Prion Disease,” was published in January of 2021 and has been studiously ignored by major media, which has focused its efforts on encouraging individuals to take the jab.

    The paper was authored by J. Bart Classen, MD and analyzed the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, stating that:

    "The RNA sequence of the vaccine as well as the spike protein target interaction were analyzed for the potential to convert intracellular RNA binding proteins TAR DNA binding protein (TDP-43) and Fused in Sarcoma (FUS) into their pathologic prion conformations. The results indicate that the vaccine RNA has specific sequences that may induce TDP-43 and FUS to fold into their pathologic prion confirmations."

    The paper goes on to state that “The folding of TDP-43 and FUS into their pathologic prion confirmations is known to cause ALS, front temporal lobar degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological degenerative diseases.”

    In other words, the Pfizer mRNA vaccine may have the capability of turning brains to mush.

    Far from prompting any pause or calls for re-evaluation of the Pfizer vaccine, the media has largely ignored the paper. A few of the more notorious “fact check” websites have pronounced that the conclusions of this study are false.

    According to USA Today, which appears to be possibly the only national mainstream media to have covered this article, “Contrary to Classen’s claim, there is no evidence to suggest the COVID-19 vaccines can cause prion diseases or other neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.”

    USA Today cites as their source for this the fact that the FDA did not mention prion disease as an effect of the vaccine. USA Today also mentions that the CDC’s VAERS website does not mention prion disease as resulting from the Pfizer vaccine. However, as prion disease takes years to develop, it is hardly likely that the VAERS website would contain this information. The article goes on to trash the journal in which the article appeared, quoting a Dr. Angela Rassmussen with Georgetown University as stating that it is “not a reputable or reliable journal.”

    The article charges that “Microbiology & Infectious Diseases is an open-access journal published by SciVision Publishers, a potential predatory publisher intended for profit rather than academic peer-review.” In fact, SciVision Publishers makes its content freely available without charge, while charging the authors a publication fee.

    There are other statements intending to “slur the messenger” by the fact check sites. PolitiFact stated that Classen speculates on his website that the coronavirus pandemic “is actually a bioweapon attack and may be linked to the U.S. anthrax attack of 2001.”

    PolitiFact states that “He also included that claim — which PolitiFact has repeatedly debunked — in the body of his research article.”

    PolitiFact has gotten this wrong. Way, way wrong. There is a clear nexus with the attacks of September 11 and a bioweapons agenda. This nexus manifested itself in a number of ways. For one, the infamous Patriot Act, passed in the wake of 9/11, contains a little discussed section, enumerated as 817, The Expansion of the Biological Weapons Statute, which gives the US government immunity from violating its own bioweapons laws. This nexus between the events of September 2001 and a bioweapons agenda is discussed extensively in my upcoming book At the Breaking Point of History: How Decades of US Duplicity Enabled the Pandemic.

    Apart from the propagandistic slur above, PolitiFact also charges that Classen provides no evidence of a relationship between the Pfizer vaccine and prion disease, stating “All he includes is a three-sentence methods section summarizing an unspecified analysis of the coronavirus vaccine.”

    However, in an article in the International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice and Research, authors Dr. Stephanie Seneff (MIT) and Dr. Greg Nigh discuss a variety of problems presented by the mRNA vaccines. Their peer reviewed article, which is titled “Worse Than the Disease? Reviewing Some Possible Unintended Consequences of the mRNA Vaccines Against Covid-19” also supports Dr. Classen’s concerns, stating that “When considering that the SARS CoV2 spike protein is a transmembrane protein, and that it contains five GxxxG motifs in its sequence (see uniprot.org/uniprot/P0DTC2), it becomes extremely plausible that it could behave as a prion.”

    The authors go on to note “…that the mRNA vaccines are designed with an altered sequence that replaces two adjacent amino acids in the fusion domain with a pair of prolines. This is done intentionally in order to force the protein to remain in its open state and make it harder for it to fuse with the membrane. This seems to us like a dangerous step towards misfolding potentially leading to prion disease.”

    The article also addresses concerns about vaccine “shedding,” and provides scientific validation for concerns that vaccinated can potentially infect unvaccinated with prion disease. The article states that “There has been considerable chatter on the Internet about the possibility of vaccinated people causing disease in unvaccinated people in close proximity. While this may seem hard to believe, there is a plausible process by which it could occur through the release of exosomes from dendritic cells in the spleen containing misfolded spike proteins, in complex with other prion reconformed proteins.”

    In pursuit of obtaining informed scientific responses to Dr. Classen’s article, this reporter contacted numerous scientists working in neurology and specifically researching prions, including several cited by Classen in the footnotes to his article. No input whatsoever was received from Dr. Aaron Gitler, Dr. Oliver King, Dr. Katannya Kapeli or others contacted for their response. The FDA was also contacted for comment and did not reply.

    A recent article revealed that a neurodegenerative disease resembling “Mad Cow” disease seems to have popped up in New Brunswick, Canada, and states that “In a March 5 memo to organizations representing New Brunswick’s doctors, nurses and pharmacists, deputy chief medical officer of health Dr. Cristin Muecke said her office is investigating a cluster of cases of “a progressive neurological syndrome of unknown etiology,” or origin. The cases have “many similarities to Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease,” she said, but testing has so far ruled out known prion diseases.”

    Canada: Pop-Up Clinic Offers Kids Free Ice Cream To Get Covid Vaccine, No Parental Permission Required

    Children in Canada as young as 12 are being given free ice cream to take Pfizer’s experimental mRNA therapy “vaccine,” with no parental permission required.

    Throngs of police were filmed guarding one site from outraged parents at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto:
