There was plenty of sexual violence in the New Orleans Superdome after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Many people were mugged, robbed, and raped as thousands of people were sleeping nearby (or pretending to sleep).

This is just anti-Islamic. Come on Europeans, grow a pair, and just say it: You don't want to see visible signs of Islam in your hitherto non-Islamic countries. Just have the guts to say it straight, instead of this mealy-mouthed farce.

Japan has never had a "free market" in any meaningful sense of the term. It has always been part socialist, corporatist, mercantilist, and autarchy. People claiming this is the result of "muh late stage capitalism!" are wholly ignorant.

When China and Russia provide vaccines to countries in need, it's done for selfish, nefarious reasons, but when the US bombs and destroys a country, it's done out of the goodness of their heart.

Of course, how dare country X move its borers so close to our military bases!

And the Western MSM will spin like crazy - just check the recent reporting by the BBC about the Biden bombing of Syria.

Be prepared for more of this over the next few months. Many planes were/are mothballed during the collapse of passenger demand in the Covid crisis, with varying levels of maintenance. There are many parts on a modern jet liner that can go wrong, so you'd better hope that the next plane you get on has been maintained well with no cutting of corners...

Russia has already graciously exported Sputnik V to 26 countries.

The Russian vaccine has been proven over 90% effective by a study in the UK Lancet journal, it's half the price of the Pfizer vaccine, can be stored at 2 to 8 degrees Celsius and has no reported serious side effects after millions of doses delivered.

Just as with the original Sputnik satellite in 1957, the Russians have once again beaten the Anglo-Americans to the punch and there is much wailing and gnashing of teeth in London and D.C.!

Posted in: Japan to start COVID vaccinations next week despite syringe shortage See in context

By referring to COVID-19 vaccines as “vaccines” rather than gene therapies, the U.S. government is violating its 15 U.S. Code Section 41, which regulates deceptive practices in medical claims

The mRNA injections are gene therapies that do not fulfill a single criteria or definition of a vaccine

COVID-19 “vaccines” do not impart immunity or inhibit transmissibility of the disease. They only are designed to lessen your infection symptoms if or when you get infected. As such, these products do not meet the legal or medical definition of a vaccine

Since a vast majority of people who test positive for SARS-CoV-2 have no symptoms at all, they’ve not even been able to establish a causal link between the virus and the clinical disease

By calling this experimental gene therapy technology a “vaccine,” they are circumventing liability for damages that would otherwise apply

All of these disorders being caused by the vaccines are autoimmune disorders. That many vaccines, in general, cause autoimmunity is well-known in the vaccine "skeptic" community. In fact, its the reason why vaccine "skeptics" exist in the first place. That this new mRNA vaccine is also causing these reactions is disturbing. Its disturbing because many of us thought that all of the problems with adult vaccines, mostly autoimmunity, were due to either Thimerosal or the adjuvants, and that the development of vaccines without these would be "safe". The mRNA vaccine has neither of these ingredients and, yet, we are seeing many problems of autoimmunity from it. This means that either there are other compounds in the vaccine that are causing the problems or that the very process of vaccination itself causes autoimmunity in some individuals.

Posted in: Japan to start COVID vaccinations next week despite syringe shortage See in context

Two Italian nurses, a doctor and a pharmacist, all previously healthy and only in their 40s, have died of heart attacks after getting the at least one dose of the Pfizer Covid "vaccine".

Like the lockdowns, these "vaccines" which are not actually vaccines in the technical sense, are almost certainly going to turn out to be worse than the disease for everyone under the age of 70 even in the short term. And it will not be even remotely surprising if the long-term consequences turn out to be catastrophic. 

Meanwhile, the more conventional vaccines don't appear to work as well as acquiring natural immunity.

Vaccine manufacturer Merck has abandoned development of two coronavirus vaccines, saying that after extensive research it was concluded that the shots offered less protection than just contracting the virus itself and developing antibodies. The company announced that the shots V590 and V591 were ‘well tolerated’ by test patients, however they generated an ‘inferior’ immune system response in comparison with natural infection. 

And the vaccine news just keeps getting better:

At least 36 people may have developed a rare blood disorder, known as immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), after taking either Pfizer and BioNTech or Moderna's COVID-19 vaccines, according to a report. 

At this point, you'd have to be crazy to roll the dice with these vaccines rather than the virus if you're not an obese 68-year old man with asthma. If you're old and in a high-risk group with comorbidities, sure, take your chances with the shots. Otherwise, it makes no sense. The complete inability of people to grasp the probabilities involved would be depressing if one wasn't already aware how uneducated and easily manipulated they are on average.
