May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) -- A Catholic procession held Saturday in Paris to commemorate the killing in hatred of the faith of 10 priests and seminarists during the socialist insurrection of the “Commune” in 1871 was violently attacked by a group of communist activists and “antifas.”

One hundred fifty years after the brutal killing of 50 hostages in the popular 20th arrondissement of Paris, the “Massacre of the rue Haxo,” old resentment is still alive and the anticlerical French extreme left appears to be anxious to kindle past anger.

The extremists’ attack forced the procession to disband. Two middle-aged men who had joined the procession fell when the demonstrators started throwing garbage cans, bottles and metal fences at those who were praying and singing. One received bad scalp wounds and had to be evacuated by ambulance while covered with blood.

Some 300 people had responded to announcements in the Archdiocese of Paris and five parishes in the northeastern quadrant of the French capital -- including Notre-Dame des Otages, which grew out of a chapel built in the 1930s by a Jesuit -- to commemorate the martyrdom of the 10 men of God on May 26, 1871.

The procession was to cover four kilometers, following the footsteps of the 50 hostages who were taken prisoner by the Parisian insurrection against the new Republican government of Napoleon III, nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte, that had its seat in Versailles after the fall on the battlefield of Sedan in the Franco-Prussian war in 1870.

The first National Assembly of the Third Republic was constituted by a majority of monarchists under the leadership of Adolphe Thiers. Its aims were peace and reconstruction after liberal Paris had been under siege for four months and suffered much. The working class of Paris wanted war and revenge but also more power, libertarian rules with equality between men and women, the recognition of divorce, free love and children born out of wedlock.

The “Federals,” as the insurrection’s members were known, had inflamed opinion against the Catholic Church and its representatives for many weeks, and they rejected the Concordat that Napoleon’s government had signed with Pope Pius VII in 1801 after the French Revolution. The French “Commune” wanted the separation of church and state (that would be formalized some 35 years later in 1905).

This revolutionary and deeply anticlerical force was opposed by the so-called “army of Versailles.” It was constituted by the Republican forces, who were also not particularly favorable to the Catholic Church, and civil war took over the streets of Paris during the “Semaine sanglante,” or “Bloody Week,” from May 21 to May 28, with barricades, bloodshed and severe repression that led to the defeat of the “Commune.”

The 10 religious hostages who were killed in the rue Haxo were some of the many victims of the anticlericalism of the “Commune:” the cause for their beatification is now in Rome and their martyrdom could be officially recognized by 2022.

Catholics who walked, prayed and chanted in the streets of Paris on Saturday certainly didn’t expect to be attacked by those who consider themselves as the inheritors of the insurrection of 1870. They were peacefully proceeding through the Boulevard de Ménilmontant, still in some ways a popular part of town, when they suddenly found themselves at the center of a group of about 30 activists hurling insults and heavy objects at them.

One Catholic live-tweeted during the attack: “We are also praying for those who are presently insulting the Catholic Church and who look as if they came straight out of a Gremlins movie.” That was only the beginning, and appears to have come from local bars and terraces where people were enjoying the spring weather.

Amused at first, he continued, “I’m not filming because my friends and I prefer to remain in a state of recollection, but I assure you it’s worthwhile experiencing this to understand what that left wing is capable of …  A woman is screaming insults, another individual is threatening us with gas chambers and another says he’ll burn down our churches.”

Others were shouting: “Everybody hates the people from Versailles. Death to the ‘fachos’” (the “fascists”). Versailles, in the wealthy western suburbs of Paris, is known in France for its unusually large proportion of numerous families and practicing Catholics.

Hooded youths then attacked the procession with “large projectiles,” leading most of the participants to leave for safety’s sake, and a handful of friends continued their march informally. The police were there, the same person said on Twitter, “but clearly undermanned.” A few reinforcements came and chased the agressions with teargas.

Some are now asking why a demonstration of “Commune” sympathizers was authorized by the Prefecture of Police of Paris on the itinerary of the religious procession, albeit a bit earlier in the afternoon, and why only one policeman had been assigned to the security of the Catholic event, at the head of the procession.

The “antifas” proved especially violent: they wrenched banners from the participants in the procession, trampled a flag of the “Souvenir français,” a veteran organization, and even threw heavy metal barriers at the peaceful march in which many women and children were also taking part. It was at this point that one man was wounded, and many sought refuge in the church of the Holy Cross not far away. “We stayed there and waited, praying, until the police exfiltrated us,” one witness recalled.

There will be an official complaint against the assailants. However, there was little official indignation over the event. President Emmanuel Macron, who was on an official visit to South Africa, did not mention the attack, leading many to say that this would have been different if a Muslim event had been physically and verbally assaulted in the same way.

Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin published a tweet saying that “freedom of worship” should ensure that religious events take place in peace: “Thoughts for the Catholics in France.” But besides the fact that the procession had not been properly protected despite an official counter-manifestation, these mere words neither identified the aggressors nor promised that any repression would take place.

Emmanuelle Ménard, a courageous independent deputy at the National Assembly, had asked the government on Monday:

“The violent actions of a part of the extreme left have been increasing for several years and have become almost systematic against all people who do not think like them. During this procession, several sources mention the near absence of security forces to protect the route, which would have prevented this violence. Mrs. Emmanuelle Ménard therefore asks the Minister of the Interior what measures had previously been put in place to secure the procession, what action was taken by the Paris Police Prefecture from the beginning of the attacks to protect the participants and what measures and means he intends to take to respond effectively and concretely to these repeated acts of violence by these extreme left-wing activists, which are completely intolerable in our democracy.”

Archbishop Michel Aupetit condemned the aggression in an op-ed in Le Figaro.

His auxiliary bishop, Denis Jachiet, who co-organized the procession, also complained, remarking that “the objective was purely religious. There was no political claim in our initiative.”

Bernard Antony, president of the French and Christian defense league AGRIF, published a statement condemning this blindness:

“On the purpose of the procession, Bishop Denis Jachiet, auxiliary bishop of Paris, declared to Le Figaro: ‘The objective was purely religious, there was no political claim in our initiative.’

“Bishop Jachiet obviously does not seem to understand that it is the hatred of the Catholic religion, of its spiritual and moral values, which has always been sufficient to motivate the aggressions of the atheist extreme left.

“It does not need Catholics to adopt a political positioning in order to hate them.

“The hatred of ‘religion, opium of the people’ is still in the DNA of Marxist-Leninists and revolutionaries in general, Jacobins, Young Turks, Nazis and Communists. But all of these certainly carried out their exterminations of Christians in dozens of countries under the pretext of the harmfulness of the Christian's policies.

“It is therefore useless to try to exonerate oneself from such an accusation. The mere fact of praying for the martyrs of yesterday’s or today’s revolutions constitutes for the communists and other ultra-left groups a provocation that requires a response of liberticidal violence.

“One can always understand this in the light of the fable of the Wolf and the Lamb.

“The communist and leftist aggressors of the Menilmontant procession have once again demonstrated the need for a political order that protects the public freedom of worship.”

COVID infection elicits long-lasting immunity, nullifying worldwide vaccine push: study

'We found antibody-producing cells in people 11 months after first symptoms. These cells will live and produce antibodies for the rest of people’s lives. That’s strong evidence for long-lasting immunity.'

LifeSiteNews has produced an extensive COVID-19 vaccines resources page. View it here. 

ST. LOUIS, Missouri, May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – A newly published study into the long-term effects of infection with COVID-19 has concluded that contracting the virus can give people cells that “produce antibodies for the rest of people’s lives” against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Commenting on the findings, the study’s principal author, Dr. Ali Ellebedy, Ph.D, said the presence of such antibody cells is “strong evidence for long-lasting immunity” against COVID-19, if one has been previously infected.

The study, titled “SARS-CoV-2 infection induces long-lived bone marrow plasma cells in humans” and published May 24 in the journal Nature, was conducted by a group of researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) in St. Louis. The team tracked the antibody development of 77 previously infected individuals, each of whom donated blood samples at three-month intervals from the first month after their infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The team discovered that, with mild infections, antibody levels were initially high but dropped steeply within a few months, remaining steady thereafter without disappearing entirely. In fact, according to the study, a small number of antibodies were still detectable after 11 months.

Ellebedy, associate professor of pathology and immunology at WUSM, explained that such a phenomenon is exactly what should be expected with a normal viral infection cycle and does not point to only a short-term immunity.

Blood antibody levels are principally made up of plasmablasts during a virus-induced immune response, forming a strong initial defense but lasting only a limited time. Antibody levels wane significantly after a virus has been successfully fought off, but crucially a number of the cells that create specific antibodies, known as long-lived plasma cells, are stored in the bone marrow.

After the initial infection, memory cells known as B-cells detect previously encountered viruses in the bloodstream. Most of the study participants had SARS-CoV-2 specific B-cells in the bloodstream seven months from the time of infection, according to the authors.

“It’s normal for antibody levels to go down after acute infection, but they don’t go down to zero; they plateau. Here, we found antibody-producing cells in people 11 months after first symptoms. These cells will live and produce antibodies for the rest of people’s lives. That’s strong evidence for long-lasting immunity,” Ellebedy said.

In fact, Ellebedy decried mainstream media outlets and scientific organizations for spreading an interpretation of low antibody data “to mean that immunity was not long-lived.” “But that’s a misinterpretation of the data,” the professor added.

Realizing that bone marrow plasma could demonstrate the long-term effect of COVID infection and whether immunity was gained, Ellebedy procured bone marrow samples from 18 of the 77 study participants approximately eight months after they first contracted COVID-19. Four months later, five of the 18 donors gave a second bone marrow sample. The study noted that 11 individuals who hadn’t previously contracted SARS-CoV-2 also gave bone marrow, acting as a control measure.

Fifteen of the COVID-positive donors were found to have the antibody-producing cells still present in their bone marrow, with the five who gave additional samples yet displaying the same antibody-producing cells four months later. Notably, the 11 COVID-negative donors did not display any antibody-producing cells in their bone marrow in the same period.

“People with mild cases of COVID-19 clear the virus from their bodies two to three weeks after infection, so there would be no virus driving an active immune response seven or 11 months after infection,” the researchers wrote.

“These cells are not dividing. They are quiescent, just sitting in the bone marrow and secreting antibodies. They have been doing that ever since the infection resolved, and they will continue doing that indefinitely,” the team explained.

Dr. Rafi Ahmed, an immunologist at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, whose team co-discovered bone marrow plasma cells in 1996, said the discovery “is a very important observation.”

In like manner, a 2020 study, also published in the journal Nature, found that people who contracted the SARS virus (also known as SARS-CoV-1) between 2002 and 2004 had maintained a detectable level of memory T-cells.

“(P)atients who recovered from SARS (the disease associated with SARS-CoV infection) possess long-lasting memory T cells that are reactive to the N protein of SARS-CoV 17 years after the outbreak of SARS in 2003.” Given the genetic similarity of SARS-CoV-1 and the COVID-19 virus, “these T cells displayed robust cross-reactivity to the N protein of SARS-CoV-2,” the researchers found.

By contrast, Pfizer’s own study into the long-term protection offered by its experimental mRNA COVID vaccine showed that inoculated individuals can expect a mere six months of immunity from infection with COVID-19.

A landmark study from Israel published in May confirmed that previous infection with COVID-19 provides a greater level of immunity against the virus than does Pfizer’s vaccine.

The three-month study – following four sets of groups based on a variation of being vaccinated, unvaccinated, previously infected, and not previously infected – showed that the overall efficacy of Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine against infection was 92.8 percent, ranking marginally lower than natural immunity from prior infection, which the study found to be 94.8 percent.

Additionally, previous infection with the virus was found to provide slightly more protection against severe illness upon re-infection than vaccination in those who hadn’t had the virus, with the recovered contingent returning a 96.4 percent efficacy against the 94.4 percent efficacy of the vaccination.

Vaccine efficacy against death from COVID-19 was found to be 93.7 percent in fully vaccinated individuals, “defined as 15 days or more after the second dose.” Conversely, no efficacy calculation was presented for previously infected people as only one person in that group died during the three-month study. The study awaits peer review.

American pharmaceutical firm Merck (operating as MSD outside of North America) announced as early as January that they were halting the development of a vaccine against COVID-19 after determining that the immune responses gained from their own trial vaccines were “inferior to those seen following natural infection,” as well as those seen in other COVID-19 vaccines.

With even mild bouts of the infection giving rise to long-lasting plasma cells against COVID-19, the team from WUSM speculated on the possibility of asymptomatic patients gaining a similar immunity to reinfection; however, further investigations into asymptomatic immunity are needed to confirm the hypothesis. The team has opened a study probing long-term COVID immunity from vaccines.

In spite of the above, the World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended that even individuals who have contracted COVID-19 at some recent point ought to be vaccinated against the virus for their own protection against reinfection. The WHO, an agency of the United Nations responsible for monitoring and advising on international health, has touted vaccination against COVID-19 as the only way to establish herd immunity safely.

“Herd immunity against COVID-19 should be achieved by protecting people through vaccination, not by exposing them to the pathogen that causes the disease,” a December statement read.

The WHO also stated in October 2020 that achieving herd immunity through natural infection would be “scientifically problematic and unethical,” thereby strongly encouraging the production and mass rollout of a vaccine and ignoring the July 2020 SARS study demonstrating long-lasting T-cell immunity.

However, the vaccine-only immunity drive took a hit when Seychelles, the world’s most vaccinated country, recorded the world’s highest global COVID-19 case count in the first week of May.

The archipelago nation, comprising 115 islands off the east coast of Africa, had supplied the majority of its vaccinated inhabitants (about 57 percent) with the Sinopharm-produced inoculation from China, The Wall Street Journal reported. Those who did not receive the Chinese variant were given two doses of the experimental AstraZeneca shot (around 43 percent). Despite this, the country recorded 336 positive tests per 100,000 population in the first week of May, more than double the amount of second place Maldives at 153 per 100,000.

Seychelles even topped India’s infection rate at the time, which had seen around 28 positive tests of the virus in the per 100,000 population in the same time period.

Like the WHO, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that people “should be vaccinated regardless of whether (they) already had COVID-19.” But leading experts in immunology have raised grave concerns around the possibility of antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) arising from vaccines against coronaviruses.

In December, distinguished scientist and former Pfizer vice president Dr. Mike Yeadon, along with colleague Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, filed a petition with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) calling for the immediate suspension of all COVID-19 vaccine studies due to significant safety concerns regarding ADEs.

An ADE causes viral antibodies gained from a vaccine, for instance, to overreact when the individual comes into contact with the wild strain of the virus, with the possibility of enhancing the disease instead of mitigating it. With COVID vaccines, this could mean that vaccinated individuals will suffer a more severe bout of the disease and even experience organ failure.

Children’s Health Defense warned last year that ADEs were a possibility in COVID-19 vaccines, yet trials were not designed to detect such pathogenic priming.

America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) described the debilitating effect ADE can have on a person as being “especially tricky because it is a delayed reaction.” “Initially all seems well. The person seems to have a great immune response but then (this vulnerability brought about by the vaccine) becomes deadly when the person is exposed to the virus in the wild.”

“The vaccine amplifies the infection rather than preventing damage … It may only be seen after months or years of use in populations around the world,” they warned.

An example can be found in a vaccine produced in 2015-16 to combat the Dengue fever in the Phillipines, the result of which included 600 child deaths in the Philippines arising from ADE. Criminal charges were brought against the researcher in the wake of the tragedy.

Given the global scale of the pro-COVID vaccine push and the disregard for due process, Yeadon commented that he has “absolutely no doubt that we are in the presence of evil (not a determination I’ve ever made before in a 40-year research career) and dangerous products.”

“For example, if someone wished to harm or kill a significant proportion of the world’s population over the next few years, the systems being put in place right now will enable it.” “It’s my considered view that it is entirely possible that this will be used for massive-scale depopulation,” he warned.

Vaccine researcher admits ‘big mistake,’ says spike protein is dangerous ‘toxin’

‘Terrifying’ new research finds vaccine spike protein unexpectedly in bloodstream. The protein is linked to blood clots, heart and brain damage, and potential risks to nursing babies and fertility.

Editor’s Note: This article has been amended to note that 11 of 13 vaccinated subjects in a recent Ogata study had detectable protein from SARS coronavirus in their bloodstream including three people who had measurable spike protein. Whereas the article referenced a statement from Professor Bridle's group stating that spike protein was present for 29 days in one person, the study in question states that spike protein was found in the person on Day 29,  one day after a second vaccine injection and was undetectable two days later. 

May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — New research shows that the coronavirus spike protein from COVID-19 vaccination unexpectedly enters the bloodstream, which is a plausible explanation for thousands of reported side-effects from blood clots and heart disease to brain damage and reproductive issues, a Canadian cancer vaccine researcher said last week.

“We made a big mistake. We didn’t realize it until now,” said Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist and associate professor at University of Guelph, Ontario, in an interview with Alex Pierson last Thursday, in which he warned listeners that his message was “scary.”

“We thought the spike protein was a great target antigen, we never knew the spike protein itself was a toxin and was a pathogenic protein. So by vaccinating people we are inadvertently inoculating them with a toxin,” Bridle said on the show, which is not easily found in a Google search but went viral on the internet this weekend.

Bridle, a vaccine researcher who was awarded a $230,000 government grant last year for research on COVID vaccine development, said that he and a group of international scientists filed a request for information from the Japanese regulatory agency to get access to what’s called the “biodistribution study.”

“It’s the first time ever scientists have been privy to seeing where these messenger RNA [mRNA] vaccines go after vaccination,” said Bridle. “Is it a safe assumption that it stays in the shoulder muscle? The short answer is: absolutely not. It’s very disconcerting.”

Vaccine researchers had assumed that novel mRNA COVID vaccines would behave like “traditional” vaccines and the vaccine spike protein — responsible for infection and its most severe symptoms — would remain mostly in the vaccination site at the shoulder muscle. Instead, the Japanese data showed that the infamous spike protein of the coronavirus gets into the blood where it circulates for several days post-vaccination and then accumulated in organs and tissues including the spleen, bone marrow, the liver, adrenal glands, and in “quite high concentrations” in the ovaries.

“We have known for a long time that the spike protein is a pathogenic protein. It is a toxin. It can cause damage in our body if it gets into circulation,” Bridle said.

The SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is what allows it to infect human cells. Vaccine manufacturers chose to target the unique protein, making cells in the vaccinated person manufacture the protein which would then, in theory, evoke an immune response to the protein, preventing it from infecting cells.

A large number of studies has shown that the most severe effects of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, such as blood clotting and bleeding, are due to the effects of the spike protein of the virus itself

“What has been discovered by the scientific community is the spike protein on its own is almost entirely responsible for the damage to the cardiovascular system, if it gets into circulation,” Bridle told listeners.

Lab animals injected with purified spike protein into their bloodstream developed cardiovascular problems, and the spike protein was also demonstrated to cross the blood brain barrier and cause damage to the brain.

A grave mistake, according to Bridle, was the belief that the spike protein would not escape into the blood circulation. “Now, we have clear-cut evidence that the vaccines that make the cells in our deltoid muscles manufacture this protein — that the vaccine itself, plus the protein — gets into blood circulation,” he said.

Bridle cited the recent study which detected SARS-CoV-2 protein in the blood plasma of 11 of 13 young healthcare workers that had received Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine, including three with detectable levels of spike protein. A 'subunit' protein called S1, part of the spike protein, was also detected. Spike protein was detected an average of 15 days after the first injection. One patient had spike protein detectable on day 29, one day after an injection, which disappeared two days later. 

Effects on heart and brain

Once in circulation, the spike protein can attach to specific ACE2 receptors that are on blood platelets and the cells that line blood vessels. “When that happens it can do one of two things: it can either cause platelets to clump, and that can lead to clotting. That’s exactly why we’ve been seeing clotting disorders associated with these vaccines. It can also lead to bleeding.” Bridle also said the spike protein in circulation would explain recently reported heart problems in youths who had received the shots.

“The results of this leaked Pfizer study tracing the biodistribution of the vaccine mRNA are not surprising, but the implications are terrifying,” Stephanie Seneff, a senior research scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, told LifeSiteNews. “It is now clear” that vaccine content is being delivered to the spleen and the glands, including the ovaries and the adrenal glands. “The released spike protein is being shed into the medium and then eventually reaches the bloodstream causing systemic damage. ACE2 receptors are common in the heart and brain, and this is how the spike protein causes cardiovascular and cognitive problems,” Seneff said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently announced it was studying reports of “mild” heart conditions following COVID-19 vaccination, and last week 18 teenagers in the state of Connecticut alone were hospitalized for heart problems that developed shortly after they took COVID-19 vaccines.

AstraZeneca’s vaccine was halted in a number of countries and is no longer recommended for younger people because of its link to life-threatening and fatal blood clots, but mRNA COVID vaccines have been linked to hundreds of reports of blood clotting events as well.

FDA warned of spike protein danger

Pediatric rheumatologist J. Patrick Whelan had warned a vaccine advisory committee of the Food and Drug Administration of the potential for the spike protein in COVID vaccines to cause microvascular damage causing damage to the liver, heart, and brain in “ways that were not assessed in the safety trials.”

While Whelan did not dispute the value of a coronavirus vaccine that worked to stop transmission of the disease (which no COVID vaccine in circulation has been demonstrated to do), he said, “it would be vastly worse if hundreds of millions of people were to suffer long-lasting or even permanent damage to their brain or heart microvasculature as a result of failing to appreciate in the short-term an unintended effect of full-length spike protein-based vaccines on other organs.”

Vaccine-associated spike protein in blood circulation could explain myriad reported adverse events from COVID vaccines, including the 4,000 deaths to date, and nearly 15,000 hospitalizations, reported to the U.S. government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) as of May 21, 2021. Because it is a passive reporting system, these reports are likely only the tip of an iceberg of adverse events since a Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare study found that less than one percent of side-effects that physicians should report in patients following vaccination are in fact reported to VAERS.

Bridle said the discovery of vaccine-induced spike protein in blood circulation would have implications for blood donation programs. “We don’t want transfer of these pathogenic spike proteins to fragile patients who are being transfused with that blood,” he said.

The vaccine scientist also said the findings suggested that nursing babies whose mothers had been vaccinated were at risk of getting COVID spike proteins from her breast milk.

Bridle said that “any proteins in the blood will get concentrated in breast milk,” and “we have found evidence of suckling infants experiencing bleeding disorders in the gastrointestinal tract” in VAERS.

Although Bridle did not cite it, one VAERS report describes a five-month-old breastfed infant whose mother received a second dose of Pfizer’s vaccine in March. The following day, the baby developed a rash and became “inconsolable,” refused to nurse, and developed a fever. The report says the baby was hospitalized with a diagnosis of Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, a rare blood disorder in which blood clots form in small blood vessels throughout the body. The baby died.

The new research also has “serious implications for people for whom SARS Coronavirus 2 is not a high risk pathogen, and that includes all of our children.”

Effect on fertility and pregnancy?

The high concentration of spike protein found in testes and ovaries in the secret Pfizer data released by the Japanese agency raises questions, too. “Will we be rendering young people infertile?” Bridle asked.

There have been thousands of reports of menstrual disorders by women who had taken a COVID-19 shot, and hundreds of reports of miscarriage in vaccinated pregnant women, as well as of disorders of reproductive organs in men.

Vicious smear campaign

In response to a request, Bridle emailed a statement to LifeSiteNews on Monday morning, stating that since the radio interview he had received hundreds of positive emails. He added, too, that “a vicious smear campaign has been initiated against me. This included the creation of a libelous website using my domain name.”

“Such are the times that an academic public servant can no longer answer people’s legitimate questions with honesty and based on science without fear of being harassed and intimidated,” Brindle wrote. “However, it is not in my nature to allow scientific facts to be hidden from the public.”

He attached a brief report outlining the key scientific evidence supporting what he said in the interview. It was written with his colleagues in the Canadian COVID Care Alliance (CCCA) — a group of independent Canadian doctors, scientists, and professionals whose declared aim is “to provide top quality, evidence-based information about COVID-19, intent on reducing hospitalizations and saving more lives.”

A focus of the statement was the risk to children and teens who are the target of the latest vaccine marketing strategies, including in Canada.

As of May 28, 2021, there have been 259,308 confirmed cases of SARS-CoV-2 infections in Canadians 19 years and under. Of these, 0.048% were hospitalized, but only 0.004% died, according to the CCCA statement. “Seasonal influenza is associated with more severe illness than COVID-19.”

Given the small number of young research subjects in Pfizer’s vaccine trials and the limited duration of clinical trials, the CCCA said questions about the spike protein and another vaccine protein must be answered before children and teens are vaccinated, including whether the vaccine spike protein crosses the blood-brain barrier, whether the vaccine spike protein interferes with semen production or ovulation, and whether the vaccine spike protein crosses the placenta and impacts a developing baby or is in breast milk.

LifeSiteNews sent the Public Health Agency of Canada the statement of CCCA and asked for a response to Bridle’s concerns. The agency responded that it was working on the questions but did not send answers before publication time.

Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson did not respond to questions about Bridle’s concerns. Pfizer did not respond to questions about how long the company was aware of its research data that the Japanese agency had released, showing spike protein in organs and tissue of vaccinated individuals.

China’s new three-child policy means ‘womb police’ still in business

BEIJING, China, May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – In an article entitled, “China Relaxes Family Planning Policy to Allow Couples to Have Three Children,” a Chinese Communist Party-affiliated news outlet announced curtly today:  

China officially further relaxed its family planning policy, allowing couples to give birth to three children. The move aims to improve China's population structure and actively respond to the country's aging problem. This is a developing story. We will update it later.

LifeSiteNews reported earlier that China saw the lowest number of births in 2020 since the 1960s. Only 12 million babies were born in 2020, compared to the 18 million in 2016.

Reggie Littlejohn, Founder and President of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, issued the following statement:

China’s move from a two-child policy to a three-child policy is nothing to celebrate. China should abolish all coercive population control. It is not the business of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to “allow” couples, or single women, to have children of whatever number.

A three-child policy keeps the “womb police” in business. They will still be tracking women’s fertility and birth, and punishing those who find themselves “illegally pregnant.” According to a 2020 Radio Free Asia report, “. . . an average of 8 million ‘extra’ pregnancies are aborted in China each year.” Since the new three-child policy applies to only “couples,” single women will still be forcibly aborted, as will fourth children. These gross violations of women’s rights and human rights must be stopped, effective immediately.

Will the three-child policy apply only to Han Chinese, or will it also apply to the Uyghurs and other minorities in Xinjiang / East Turkistan? According to a ground-breaking report by the Associated Press, “Having too many children is a major reason people are sent to detention camps, the AP found, with the parents of three or more ripped away from their families unless they can pay huge fines. Police raid homes, terrifying parents as they search for hidden children.” Under the new three-child policy, will the CCP immediately release any Uyghur parents detained because they have three children? 

A three-child policy will likely increase gendercide, the sex-selective abortion of baby girls. When the two-child policy was instituted, some couples who had a girl for their first child decided to have a second child – but only if that second child would be a boy. In 2017, for example, shortly after the two-child policy was instituted, one woman’s husband, who wanted their second child to be a boy, forced his wife to abort four girls in a year, and then she died. I am concerned that the gender of third children will be heavily skewed towards males, because the females will have been selectively aborted, due to deadly son preference.

Most couples in China are not willing to have a second child of either gender, largely because of the expense. For this reason, China did not experience the baby boom it had expected when it moved to the two-child policy in 2016. Indeed, its birth rate has plummeted to the lowest in decades. It is facing a demographic crisis because of its rapidly aging population. The move to a three-child policy is too little, too late to avert this impending disaster.

Why, then, is China retaining coercive population control of any kind? As I have long argued, the CCP will never end coercive population control, because coercive population control is keeping the CCP in place.  It is social control, masquerading as population control. Terror is the purpose of the policy.

The CCP is a brutal, totalitarian regime, responsible for multifarious human rights abuses. Coercive population control, however, is unique in that it touches each individual and community.  The CCP maintains its terrifying grip on power by extending its arm from Beijing and inserting its hand into every womb to declare life or death over the beating heart inside.

China says parents can now have 3 children, after birth rates plummet with one child policy

The new policy might be too little, too late for an aging nation, as the Chinese turn their backs on larger families.

BEIJING, May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — The communist rulers of China have told their population that they may now have three children, reversing its long-time one child policy, which only a few years ago became a two children policy. The Communist Party of China, which is synonymous with the Chinese government, made the announcement after census data revealed that the birth rate is still plummeting.

Concerned about the greying of its ethnic majority population, in 2016 China relaxed its infamous one child policy to allow two children. However, despite a small, immediate rise, this has not led to a lasting trend.

According to the BBC, a census published earlier this month showed that “around 12 million” babies were born in China last year, the lowest number of births recorded since the 1960s. This is down from the 18 million babies born in China in 2016.

David Mulroney, a Canadian former ambassador to China, told LifeSiteNews that there are “no winners” after China’s Malthusian attempt, beginning in 1978, to stop its population from growing.

“China’s four-decade war on the family ends without any winners,” Mulroney said. “For forty years, the state has visited violence on its people, born and unborn, in the name of population control, only to arrive now at an emerging demographic disaster.”

“As the number of seniors approaches 20% of the population, economic growth is tailing off and healthcare costs are skyrocketing. Having ruthlessly suppressed any consideration other than economics, China’s leaders are finding that it is precisely on economic grounds that many young Chinese women are declining to have any children at all.”

The BBC reported that Chinese citizens who grew up without brothers and sisters do not value the idea of having more than one or two children, thinking them too much trouble or too expensive to maintain. As Chinese people increasingly move from the countryside, where children are valued for their ability to help in farming, to the cities, they see children more as economic liabilities.

But Mulroney doesn’t blame atheistic communism for China’s loss of love for bigger families. He blames a western “anti-life” ideology that still wreaks havoc today.

“Western countries, which introduced population control theory to China in the 1960s and 70s, are now visiting this anti-life obsession on countries in Africa, in partnership with the abortion industry and funded with our tax dollars,” he said.

China’s anti-child policies have led not only to mass contraception, but to forced sterilization and forced abortion. Until recently, China’s minority populations have been exempted from the one-child, and then the two-children, policy. However, in the past decade, intensifying four years ago, the Chinese government has pursued what critics call a “genocidal” policy towards its Muslim Uighur minority population. China has been forced to admit that it has been running so-called “re-education” camps for Uighur people, and there are many reports that a million or more Uighurs have been imprisoned in them. The majority Chinese population, called the Han, make up 92% of the country’s population.

Number of COVID cases in Delhi crashes after mass distribution of ivermectin

Mass distribution of Ivermectin would appear to be behind the dramatic fall in COVID-19 cases, both in India and Mexico City.

May 31, 2021 (American Thinker) – India has been suffering horrendously from COVID of late, and the complete death toll may never be known. But in the capital city of Delhi, mass distribution of ivermectin began and the results have been stunning.

 Stephen McIntyre of Climate Audit posted a Twitter thread that includes this remarkable graph:

This result is consistent with the results of mass distribution of Ivermectin in Mexico City, as reported by James V. DeLong on these pages on May 21, 2021:

Yet, most doctors in this country refuse to prescribe Ivermectin, and most hospitals in this country refuse to administer it even to seriously ill COVID patients, citing the lack of double-blind studies – which are expensive and time consuming and which yield no big profits for anyone since ivermectin is a generic drug with no patent protection.

A Buffalo, NY woman had to sue in order to receive Ivermectin therapy while hospitalized, forced to bear considerable legal fees. After a judge ordered that she receive it, she recovered and left the hospital.

In poorer countries, where vaccines are unavailable to too expensive for mass use, they have been forced to resort to Ivermectin. This has had the effect of conducting a mass experiment (albeit not with the double-blind, randomized, controlled conditions that “gold standard” medical research requires. Maybe that will enable the ivermectin deniers to maintain their posture of self-righteousness.

Note that the emergency use authorization under which the experimental mRNA vaccines have been approved for mass use would not be given if there were an accepted effective alternative therapy. Billions of dollars flowing into the hands of vaccine makers would not have happened.

FLORIDA, May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – A major U.S. University has settled a lawsuit with one of its former Catholic students who was removed from his position as student union president because he spoke out against leftist groups such as Black Lives Matter. 

According to a Daily Caller News Foundation report, Jack Denton will receive a total of $10,000 in damages along with $1,050 in retroactive pay from Florida State University (FSU), who a week ago settled its months long lawsuit with him. 

In addition to paying out damages, FSU has been ordered to put a statement saying that the school will be committed to protecting every student “no matter their religion.” 

Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) Senior Counsel Tyson Langhofer, who represented Denton, said in the Daily Caller News Foundation report that “If you stand against cancel culture, you can win.” 

“Cancel culture is scary and it’s very active, but Jack shows that if you stand, you can win,” said Langhofer. 

Denton has since graduated from FSU, but his ordeal with the university began almost a year ago. 

Denton said that FSU’s student senate voted him out as president in June of 2020 because he spoke along the lines of his “Catholic doctrine in a private group chat,” that it was not advisable to support leftist groups such as BlackLivesMatter.com, Reclaim the Block, and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

“When one of my fellow members of the Catholic Student Union sent a message asking us to financially support causes that were contrary to our Catholic faith, I felt the need to point out the discrepancy,” Denton told LifeSiteNews last year.

“And without my permission, she took screenshots of what I said, and sent them to members of the Student Senate, who then removed me from my position as Student Senate president for simply stating well-known Catholic doctrines in a private group chat.”

In August of 2020, Denton and his legal counsel at the ADF filed a federal lawsuit against FSU school administrators Denton, so that he could get his job and reputation reinstated. 

Denton’s lawyer Langhofer argued that his First Amendment rights were violated, saying in the Daily Caller report that the lawsuit “could have been avoided if the university had the courage to stand up and say this was not right.”

In October, U.S. District judge Justice Allen Winsor ruled that should Denton be reinstated as president, it would cause “tumult and chaos,” but agreed that his constitutional right to free speech had been violated. 

As a result of Justice Winsor’s ruling, Denton’s lawyer Langhofer began to negotiate with the school to agree upon an adequate settlement.

Denton had the support of the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee and its Bishop William Wack. “Bishop Wack expressed how proud he was of Mr. Denton and told him that he was praying for him,” Sharmane Adams, the director of communications for the Florida diocese told LifeSiteNews last year. “Bishop Wack also offered any kind of assistance that Mr. Denton needed.”

Scientific censorship in Canada: Anti-lockdown doctors seen as ‘major threat’ to government, physician’s college, media

The actions taken by Dr. Phillips and his colleagues to not only speak truth to the government’s lockdown narrative under the threat of sanction, but ultimately serve the best interest of their patients are nothing short of heroic.

May 31, 2021 (American Institute of Economic Research) – The America Institute of Economic Research (AIER) Authors Corner Podcast has seen many exciting guests since its first episode back in September of 2020. Without exaggeration, some of the most profound intellectuals on the planet have spoken on the show, from the great economist Deirdre McCloskey to the legal giant Richard Epstein. The following episode is one that does not bring me feelings of excitement and honor, but tragedy and concern. 

This episode should serve as real-time news of the horrific situation unfolding in Canada. Dr. Patrick Phillips joins us as the spokesperson for the group behind the Declaration of Canadian Physicians for Science and Truth, a petition signed by thousands of practicing medical professionals and concerned citizens in Canada. The petition itself is in opposition to what is now the outright censorship of licensed physicians that speak contrary to the Canadian government’s policies and positions. The breadth of censorship is vast, covering everything from fringe conspiracy theories to genuine arguments that contradict the state’s narrative on masks, vaccines, and lockdowns. 

AIER has covered this story recently in an article here. In summary, the Declaration was drafted in response to a statement given by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario threatening punishment for any medical professional under its jurisdiction that spoke contrary to the approved viewpoints. The statement reads as follows,

The College is aware and concerned about the increase of misinformation circulating on social media and other platforms regarding physicians who are publicly contradicting public health orders and recommendations. Physicians hold a unique position of trust with the public and have a professional responsibility to not communicate anti-vaccine, anti-masking, anti-distancing and anti-lockdown statements and/or promoting unsupported, unproven treatments for COVID-19. Physicians must not make comments or provide advice that encourages the public to act contrary to public health orders and recommendations. Physicians who put the public at risk may face an investigation by the CPSO and disciplinary action, when warranted. When offering opinions, physicians must be guided by the law, regulatory standards, and the code of ethics and professional conduct. The information shared must not be misleading or deceptive and must be supported by available evidence and science.

This is nothing short of an attack on the very notion of scientific inquiry and a blatant rejection of the principles of the scientific method. It is shocking and horrifying to see such a policy of outright censorship on what are controversial and novel issues being carried out in a country like Canada. 

The actions taken by Dr. Phillips and his colleagues to not only speak truth to the government’s lockdown narrative under the threat of sanction but ultimately serve the best interest of their patients are nothing short of heroic. 

During the interview, Dr. Phillips spoke on the sequence of events unfolding on the ground in Canada and his commitment to staying true to his oath as a physician to support sound public health. That included talking about the damages and shortcomings of many of the government’s pandemic policies. He spoke out about how as a practicing physician, it was his duty to tell the truth to his patients on whether or not he thought certain government policies were good for their health.

In the unprecedented age of lockdowns, he and his colleagues understandably had to disagree with much of what the government was doing, but now they are being coerced into keeping quiet. Such a development signals an ominous shift against the very notion of a free society, modernity, truth, and transparency. 

By appearing on the Authors Corner, Dr. Phillips is potentially putting his medical career on the line by doing everything the government says he can’t so that he can get his group’s message out to the world. We should be honored that he has entrusted us with that privilege.

Perhaps one of the most striking things for me when it came to Dr. Phillips was not his bravery and his insight, to which he certainly has much of, but the reality of his situation. Dr. Phillips, at least to my knowledge, did not strike me as a loudmouth pundit craving publicity, podcast appearances or as a seasoned political agent. Unlike the great scholars that routinely appear on this show, his profession is real work, working with real people, solving real problems, not just talking about them. It seemed to me like the practice of medicine was his passion and his priority.

I’m sure that he never would have imagined that in his lifetime he would be appearing on media outlets representing an organization that is fighting back against government-enforced censorship. But that is what lockdowns have done. It is at least reassuring to know that in times of crisis, there are people like Dr. Phillips who are willing to step up when duty calls to make sure that if society is going by the wayside, it won’t happen without a fight.

Cdl. Müller blasts ‘Great Reset fantasies’ of world leaders, Big Tech

The cardinal also criticized bishops’ political calculations in not condemning the reception of Holy Communion by pro-abortion Catholic politicians.

May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Cardinal Gerhard Müller lamented that “leading world politicians, business leaders, Big Tech giants are intoxicated by the total surveillance state in China,” blasting their “Great Reset fantasies” pointing to “a world of pleasing the masses by eliminating the free thinking of individuals.”

In an interview with German-speaking Catholic news website kath.net (translated in full below), the former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said on Friday, “The local bishop, responsible for the salvation of his faithful entrusted to him by Christ, has a sacred duty to speak to the conscience of a prominent Catholic and point out to him the glaring contradiction between promoting abortion and receiving Holy Communion.”

Several high-profile politicians in the U.S. — including President Joe Biden and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi — claim to be Catholic, but support the killing of unborn children through abortion. And a number of bishops in the U.S. are currently attempting to slow down, if not stop, the process to draft a document spelling out the Catholic Church’s position on pro-abortion politicians claiming to be Catholic.

“Whoever actively participates in abortion, or, against better knowledge and in defiance of all instruction, favors it by word and deed, or, as a Catholic in a responsible position, fails to oppose it, is in contradiction to the will of God and receives the sacraments not for grace but for judgment,” Müller explained.

“Bishops who, in political calculation, place their party affiliation and media praise above their pastoral duties are guilty of profaning the Church, which they thus present to the world as an NGO and deny its true being as the Body of Christ and temple of the Holy Spirit,” he continued. “With their cunning excuses that they do not want to degrade Holy Communion to a means of politics, they deceive only themselves — but not others who see through the undignified game with which Holy Communion is made a means of politics. In an almost self-destructive way, they confirm the liberal prejudice that religion is a private matter and has no place in public.”

Full text of the kath.net interview with Cardinal Müller (translated with permission)

kath.net: Cardinal Müller, what is at stake in the conflict between the U.S. bishops over the admission to Holy Communion of Catholic pro-abortion politicians?

Müller: It is about the unity of faith and life, of profession [of faith] and morality. Only those who confess Jesus as Lord and God, but also fulfill the will of their heavenly Father, can enter the Kingdom of God. Sacramental communion in the reception of the Eucharistic Body and Blood of Christ only brings salvation to the believing recipient if he or she also behaves morally and socio-ethically in word and deed in a way that corresponds to the life in Christ established in Baptism, and to full Church membership.

Pope Francis has publicly excommunicated members of the Mafia across the board, and denounced their private acts of piety as hypocrisy.

Logically, this exclusion from Holy Communion with Christ must also be applied to all Catholics who directly and indirectly participate in “murder, genocide, abortion, euthanasia” (Vatican II, Gaudium et Spes 27).

Friedrich Nietzsche had already pointed out the untrustworthiness of politicians who publicly present themselves as Christians, but in their deeds behave in an anti-Christian manner, and thus lead Christianity ad absurdum. In his book “The Antichrist” (1889), he holds up a mirror to a church that has distanced itself from the ideal of Christ, and has made itself comfortable within the state: “Where did the last sense of decency go, of respect for oneself, when our statesmen even, an otherwise very unaffected kind of people and antichrists in deed through and through, still call themselves Christians today and go to Communion?” (The Antichrist, 38) The nihilistic prophet of the “death of God” knew even better than the nominal Christians of today that one can go to Holy Communion only if one’s life also conforms to the teachings of Christ.

kath.net: One can follow two strands of thought in dealing with this issue. First, what does Catholic teaching say about the reception of the Eucharist by politicians who are decidedly pro-abortion, and act accordingly?

Müller: Most governments of the formerly Christian West are infiltrated by the ideology of hostility to life. They deny and fight the [concept of] man being [created] in the image of God because this natural and revealed truth limits their absolute claim to power, and hinders their full access to body and life, thinking, acting, and feeling of the objects of their rule.

In contrast, the teaching of the Church clearly and unambiguously states: “Life is therefore to be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception. Abortion and the killing of the child are abominable crimes.” (Vatican II, Gaudium et Spes 51)

It is no accident that leading world politicians, business leaders, Big Tech giants are intoxicated by the total surveillance state in China. Their Great Reset fantasies point to a world of pleasing the masses by eliminating the free thinking of individuals. This includes their population policies. They believe that there are too many people on earth consuming the planet’s resources. Therefore the population must be reduced by all means, especially by contraception and million-fold infanticide. For this the ruling elite of the oligarchs and philanthropists guarantee an unconditional basic income and a supervised thinking to the rest of the people who are made happy by them. Where there is no alternative, no one needs to worry anymore; everything is already well regulated “by those up there.”

In addition, the crime of abortion is played down and disguised as reproductive health and made palatable to mothers as a woman’s right to self-determination, while legal and journalistic action is taken against the pro-lifers as violators of the so-called “human right to abortion” with threats and punishments. On top of that, abortion then enables the, highly criminal, billion dollar business with the organs of these murdered children.

That such an attitude is not compatible with the sacramental communion in Christ, the Word of God made flesh, is obvious. The Son of God revealed himself to the disciples as the living bread that came down from heaven: “The bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world ... Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him.”

An early Christian author stated: Christians participate positively in public life like all citizens, but do no evil and live according to the commandments of God: “They marry like all others and beget children, but do not abandon those who are born,” i.e., absolutely respect the right to life of every child as a creature of God (cf. Diognet Letter 5).

kath.net: And secondly, how does one deal with this question with human, pastoral and diplomatic wisdom?

Müller: Some politicians evade this problem by claiming that they’re personally against infanticide, but as bearers of responsibility in a pluralistic society they cannot impose Christian positions equally on all their fellow citizens. They say that the opinions of those who deny that children in the womb are fully human must be taken into account.

These politicians forget that it is a question of the natural law and the most fundamental of all human rights, namely life. “For man is the only creature on earth willed by God for its own sake” (Vatican II, Gaudium et Spes 24).

Pope Francis specified in the Catechism of the Catholic Church that the state has no right to punish the most serious criminals with death. How much less can the state attribute to its citizens the right to cruelly kill innocent human beings in the womb? It is a crying contradiction when the state legislature and the judiciary abdicate their own responsibility to protect the lives of young children — in the U.S., lamentably, a disproportionate number of African-American children are among them — and at the same time punish the violent death of an African-American with the maximum sentence of 40 years imprisonment.

Here, there must be no thinking and acting according to double standards based on ideological self-delusion. The local bishop, responsible for the salvation of his faithful entrusted to him by Christ, has a sacred duty to speak to the conscience of a prominent Catholic and point out to him the glaring contradiction between promoting abortion and receiving Holy Communion. This is true mercy, as opposed to people-smart diplomatic tactics.

The positive influence of the Church on politics does not consist in the cronyism of bishops and papal delegates with power, but in the willingness to be placed in the “service of humanity.” “And in a service that is determined by the need of humanity, not by our taste.” So said Father Alfred Delp S.J. (1907–1945) in his notes from Nazi prison on “The Fate of the Church” — before the justice of a thoroughly godless state sentenced him to death.

Here the testimony of faith is required, including bloody martyrdom, not papal secret diplomacy and episcopal power games.

In the face of the skeptic’s contemptuous question about the truth, Jesus said: “I was born for this purpose, and for this purpose I came into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”

Being a Christian today does not consist privately or publicly in fond childhood memories, sentimental self-pity with the pathos of self-realization, or grand window dressing about environmental protection and climate goals. “Whether the churches once again release from themselves the creative human being filled with divine powers is their fate ... Only then will they have the bright eyes that see the concerns and calls of God even in the darkest hours. And only then do the ready hearts beat in them ... which are only concerned with one thing: to help and to heal in the name of God ... The force of the Church’s immanent mission depends on the seriousness of her transcendent devotion and adoration.” (Fr. Delp, Mit gefesselten Händen, Freiburg 2007, 138–144)

kath.net: When a leading politician such as President Joe Biden, for example, presents himself to voters and citizens as a practicing Catholic by attending Masses, while at the same time reversing his predecessor’s pro-life policies, and also proving to be an explicit proponent of legalizing abortion even during the election campaign, is there a danger that the Catholic faithful will become confused about Catholic teaching on the active killing of unborn children?

Müller: It is the task of the Magisterium of the American bishops to overcome any ambiguity about the unconditional right to life of every human being.

Whoever actively participates in abortion, or, against better knowledge and in defiance of all instruction, favors it by word and deed, or, as a Catholic in a responsible position, fails to oppose it, is in contradiction to the will of God and receives the sacraments not for grace but for judgment.

Bishops who, in political calculation, place their party affiliation and media praise above their pastoral duties are guilty of profaning the Church, which they thus present to the world as an NGO and deny its true being as the Body of Christ and temple of the Holy Spirit. With their cunning excuses that they do not want to degrade Holy Communion to a means of politics, they deceive only themselves — but not others who see through the undignified game with which Holy Communion is made a means of politics. In an almost self-destructive way, they confirm the liberal prejudice that religion is a private matter and has no place in public.

kath.net: The accusation of “schism” is currently hovering over these disputes in the U.S. bishops’ conference. Who exactly is dividing the U.S. church? Those who publicly defend Catholic teaching, or those who are willing to work with pro-abortion politicians?

Müller: The truth of the Gospel is the basis of the unity of the disciples in Christ’s Church. Our cosmopolitan “pastoralists” turn this reality on its head. They want a displayed unity after the manner of men in order to evade the challenging truth of the revealed faith.

Many of his disciples found Jesus’ Eucharistic discourse in the synagogue of Capernaum too harsh. For “how can he give us his flesh to eat?” But Jesus does not walk with them a synodal path of placating permanent dialog until everyone agrees on the lowest common denominator, or the “salt of the earth” (Mt 5:13) has become so stale that people trample it carelessly in the street.

He asked the 12 apostles then, and he asks the whole Church today, “Will you also go?” And Peter confesses, to this very hour from the mouth of his successor, the Roman Pontiff, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life. We have come to believe and to know: You are the Holy One of God.”

kath.net: Do you personally hope that the Plenary Assembly of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), scheduled for June, will be able to bring itself to make a clear and public statement? Which contents would you consider helpful, and why?

Müller: If the bishops recognize the primacy of truth and resist the temptation to subordinate — as unfortunately was done so often in history — themselves to the apparent omnipotence of the state and prestige among fickle contemporaries, something good can come out of it for the Catholic Church in the U.S. and elsewhere.

Child abuse is a grave sin against the bodily integrity of adolescents, their souls, and their lives. Hopefully, lessons have been learned from the McCarrick case, and not only that it was unintentionally exposed, but that allowing evil can never be balanced with anything good.

Looking the other way and belittling, fiddling with the powerful, wanting to be smarter than the children of this world, cunningly pursuing worldly interests — all this has never served the Church and has always only obscured her mission to be the “all-embracing sacrament of salvation, which both reveals and realizes the mystery of God’s love for man” (Vatican II, Gaudium et Spes 45).

TORONTO, Canada, May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A Catholic college in Canada has become the first in the country to sign onto a statement released by a U.S.-based pro-homosexual advocacy group in partnership with pro-LGBT Catholic bishops in support of young people who identify as LGBT. The statement tells such young people that “God is on your side.”

The executive committee of the University of St. Michael’s College, which is federated with the University of Toronto, voted unanimously earlier this month to add its name to a statement released by some pro-LGBT U.S. Catholic bishops in partnership with the pro-homosexual Tyler Clementi Foundation in support of young people who identify as LGBT.

“Offering our concern and support for the wellbeing of LGBT young people, including our own students, is entirely in keeping with our core values at St. Michael’s,” said University President David Sylvester in a May 12 press release about the vote.

The Tyler Clementi Foundation, which publicly promotes the normalization of homosexuality, bears the name of an 18-year-old man who committed suicide in 2010 after his roommate at university filmed him engaging in homosexual acts with another student and then released the footage to the public. “Without Tyler’s knowledge, his roommate secretly pointed his computer’s camera at Tyler’s bed, left the room, and invited other students online to watch Tyler in a most private, intimate act with another man,” states the foundation’s website about the event. The website encourages people to “accept and embrace others, especially LGBTQ+ youth, for their unique identities that make this world a better place.”

The Tyler Clementi Foundation’s vision of the human person and sexuality is at odds with Catholic teaching. The Catholic Church teaches that homosexual acts are immoral. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that “basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that ‘homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.’ They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved” (CCC 2357). The Catholic Church furthermore teaches that same-sex attraction is also “objectively disordered” since God created sexual attraction for the purpose of drawing a man and a woman together to become husband and wife in marriage. The Catholic Church holds that God does not make anyone “gay.”

St. Michael’s College states on its website that its vision is to be a “recognized leader in promoting respectful dialogue and action on care for our common home (Laudato si’) and solidarity with the human family (Fratelli Tutti).” It states that its mission is to challenge “all its members to exercise transformative leadership in service of the common good and care of all creation.”

LifeSiteNews reached out to St. Michael’s College asking why a Catholic college is signing on to a statement by a pro-homosexual advocacy group that advocates for positions contrary to Catholic moral teaching. LifeSite also asked St. Michael’s College if it affirms with the Catholic Church that homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered” and that same-sex attraction is “objectively disordered.” No response was provided by press time.

So far, 14 U.S. bishops, including Newark Cardinal Joseph Tobin, have added their names to the Tyler Clementi statement. The bishops are joined by about 150 religious orders, schools, parishes, and organizations — all Catholic — who support the statement.

“As Catholic Bishops in the United States, we join with the Tyler Clementi Foundation in standing up for at-risk LGBT youth in our country,” reads the statement.

“The Catholic Church values the God-given dignity of all human life and we take this opportunity to say to our LGBT friends, especially young people, that we stand with you and oppose any form of violence, bullying or harassment directed at you,” the statement continues. “Most of all, know that God created you, God loves you and God is on your side.”

St. Michael’s College has a history of backing the normalization of various sexual identities.

In 2002, the College put out a “statement on inclusiveness,” approved by the governing body, that states, “St. Michael’s is committed to doing everything it can do to ensure that people of all backgrounds regardless of colour, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, social or economic class, and nationality will feel welcome in its midst.”

In 2003, the College’s then-principal Mark McGowan denounced a lecture by world renowned Catholic philosopher Peter Kreeft given at the College where the philosopher expounded on Catholic teaching regarding homosexuality.

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith recently pushed back against Catholic clergy seeking to bless homosexual couples, telling them that God “does not and cannot bless sin.”

Biden proposes federal budget forcing Americans to fund abortion

The Biden administration’s budget lacks the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits most federal abortion funding and has saved an estimated 2.5 millions babies’ lives.

WASHINGTON, May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Joe Biden released a proposed 2022 fiscal budget on Friday without the Hyde Amendment, opening the door to federal taxpayer funding of abortion.

The Hyde Amendment, first passed in 1976, is a measure attached to spending bills that prohibits federal funding for most abortions. The policy has been enacted every year for decades and is estimated to save around 60,000 babies annually.

Biden’s $6 trillion budget announced on Friday includes a $133 billion request from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) lacking Hyde protections, the Daily Wire reported. HHS is overseen by pro-abortion Biden nominee Xavier Beccera.

Joe Biden, a self-professed “Catholic,” previously supported the policy as a U.S. senator, before changing his stance in 2019 after pressure from abortion activists and Planned Parenthood.

“As recently as 2006, then-Senator Biden was on the record opposing tax funding of abortion, saying, ‘I do not vote for funding for abortion … I won’t support public funding,’” a recent letter signed by more than 60 pro-life advocates, including the Susan B. Anthony List, said. “Yet when on the presidential campaign trail in 2019, he flip-flopped to support abortion funding, directly contradicting his longstanding position.”

“For more than four decades, the Hyde family of pro-life policies has kept American taxpayers out of the abortion business, with the Hyde Amendment itself saving nearly 2.5 million lives,” Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement on Friday. “The Biden budget throws that longstanding, bipartisan consensus out the window to fulfill a campaign promise to the radical abortion lobby.” Dannenfelser noted that polling shows that the vast majority of Americans do not support taxpayer-funded abortion.

Archbishop Joseph Naumann, chairman of the pro-life committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USSCB) also reacted on Friday, saying that the proposed Biden budget would fund “despair and death.”

“Taxpayer-funded abortion represents a failure to serve women in their maternity by funding despair and death instead of hope and life,” he said. “No member of our great nation is weaker, more vulnerable, or less protected, than the child in the womb.”

The Biden administration’s anti-life budget can be rejected by Congress, where Republicans and Democrats each control 50 Senate seats. Pro-life activists have expressed hopes that swing votes in the Senate may not approve the White House’s attempt to force Americans to pay for abortion, according to Catholic News Agency.

The COVID-19 relief package authorized by the Biden administration last month already has been flagged for hundreds of billions of dollars of spending that could be used to fund abortion.

Canadian MP slams assisted suicide regime ‘forcing doctors and medical professionals to provide patients death’

May 31, 2021 (Euthanasia Prevention Coalition) – The following speech was by Kelly Block (MP) in the House of Commons on May 27, 2021. Kelly Block has sponsored conscience rights Bill C-268.

Sign the petition supporting Bill C-268.

Madam Speaker, I am proud to rise today to begin the debate on my private member's bill, Bill C-268, the Protection of Freedom of Conscience Act. I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge this bill is built on the hard work and determination of former members of Parliament. The first iteration that sought to address this issue was introduced by the late Mark Warawa in 2016, but it did not progress when the government introduced Bill C-14.

I do consider it a tremendous honor that my bill is the same number, C-268, as his was. After Bill C-14 was passed into law, my former colleague David Anderson introduced his private member's bill, Bill C-418, which died on the Order Paper when the election was called in 2019.

I would like to thank all those who have been championing this issue for many years and for their willingness to work with me.

Experts throughout Canada provided information and advice, while thousands of Canadians have voiced their support for protecting our fundamental freedoms. While there are numerous dictionaries that define conscience, they are consistent in defining it as an individual's inner sense of knowing the difference between what is right and wrong and that guides their behaviour.

An article by Cardus called “The Imperative of Conscience Rights” references the following:

“Conscience” traces to the Latin conscientia, and is related to the Greek synderesis. While conscientia refers to the application of our moral knowledge to particular situations, synderesis refers to the moral awareness built into each person and that urges us to do good and avoid evil.

Bill C-268 is straightforward as it seeks to enshrine in law a minimum national standard of conscience protections for medical professionals while respecting the jurisdiction of my provincial colleagues to expand on it. It is a response to calls from disability rights groups, first nations, the Ontario Medical Association and many hundreds of medical and mental health professionals to protect conscience rights.

It would ensure the medical professionals who choose to not take part in, or refer a patient for, assisted suicide or medical assistance in dying would never be forced by violence, threats, coercion or loss of employment to violate the freedoms protected in section 2(a) of the charter. This bill also serves to protect the rights of patients to receive a second opinion, and by doing so, would protect our health care system.

In my consultations, I spoke with disability rights advocate Heidi Janz. She told me about being born in the Soviet Union. Doctors told her parents that Heidi would never walk, talk or think and that she would be dependent on others for the rest of her short life. They told her parents to put her into an institution and forget they ever had her. Heidi Janz has severe cerebral palsy.

Her parents did not listen to the dominant narrative of their day. They loved their daughter and believed her life had value. Eventually, they found the support they needed. Today, Dr. Heidi Janz holds a Ph.D. and is an adjunct professor of ethics at the University of Alberta. In her spare time she is a playwright and author, and somehow, despite how busy her life is, she also serves as the chair of the ending of life ethics committee for the Council of Canadians with Disabilities.

Dr. Janz is a remarkable woman. While some might pity her, she will have none of it. She says that everyone talks about how bad it must be to have a disability, but that she chooses daily to live in opposition to that narrative. She also says that disabled people can be so much more than their diagnosis, and that she is proof of that fact.

If it had been up to the dominant view of her day, she would never have had the chance to disprove that narrative. If her parents did not have the option to find the help they wanted to get that crucial second opinion, none of my colleagues in this place would be hearing about this marvellous woman. This is not just a theoretical story.

In a similar vein, earlier this year the Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations, who is a doctor herself, wrote to her constituents about her experience of ageism in our health care system as it related to her 93-year-old father.

While I will not repeat the whole story, I will just quote her last two sentences:

My Dad got better without needing the ICU, but I remember thinking that as an MD I had been able to firmly take a stand. I worried that other families wouldn’t have been able to question the clear ageism in the choices being put in front of them.

The minister's father and all Canadians have the right to find a doctor who will offer them hope, offer them another choice, offer them a second opinion. All Canadians deserve that same right.

Now, this is anything but a guarantee in Canada. We have passed laws that have the unintended consequence of forcing doctors and medical professionals to provide patients death, regardless of whether they believe it is in their patient's best interest. Bill C-14 and Bill C-7 create a federal standard for medical assistance in dying and assisted suicide, but not for conscience protections. Despite the claims of some, it is patently absurd to argue that a conscience rights bill would somehow interfere with the role of the provinces while the legalization of medical assistance in dying does not.

We are speaking of the very first fundamental freedom laid out in the charter. Ensuring that conscience rights are protected is the responsibility of Parliament and of the Government of Canada, which is why I introduced this bill and why it should be passed. Above all, it is the right thing to do for patients and medical professionals.

Some have tried to frame conscience rights as the rights of the patient versus the rights of the doctor. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, conscience rights are critical to how our health care system works. Patients have the right to a second opinion, but there can be no second opinion if every medical professional is forced to provide the exact same list of options.

Health care is fundamentally about the doctor-patient relationship. Take the case of a psychiatrist who supports MAID in certain circumstances, but who has spent 15 years counseling a patient who suffers from bouts of depression and suicidality. For 15 years, they have built up an understanding and trust. What would happen if that patient, suffering from a bout of suicidality, should demand assisted suicide? Under the current law, that psychiatrist would be forced to refer the patient to someone else so that the patient could die. The psychiatrist must do this, despite knowing that the suicidal thoughts are temporary, that otherwise the patient is joyful and loves life, and that ending that life is wrong. The psychiatrist's hands are tied. Is that what passes for medical care?

Some might claim that there are safeguards in place to prevent such tragedies, but I ask, are members completely sure? With the passage of Bill C-7, many of the safeguards have been removed. We are talking about ending a human life. There is no room for “maybe” when a life hangs in the balance. Should the first line of safeguards not be the expertise of the medical professionals who know best? If they do not believe death is the answer, should we not at least consider if they are right? This is, after all, a matter of life and death.

Medical assistance in dying and assisted suicide are readily available throughout all of Canada. There are information phone lines, hospitals staffed with willing medical professionals, even email addresses to help set up appointments. In a word, MAID is becoming the status quo. To claim that protecting the conscience rights of medical professionals will somehow block access for those who truly want it is both misleading and nothing but baseless fearmongering.

The Canadian Medical Association stated clearly that conscience protections would not affect access, because there were more than enough physicians willing to offer MAID. This is further reinforced by a McGill study that showed that 71% of recent medical school graduates would be willing to offer MAID.

Every court case on the subject, as well as common sense, has stated clearly that the charter rights of medical professionals are breached when they are forced to either offer or refer assisted suicide or medical assistance in dying. Surely, we are clever enough to ensure access to MAID while still protecting the fundamental charter right to freedom of conscience.

I believe it is no accident that former prime minister, Pierre Trudeau, placed conscience rights as the first of the enumerated rights in our charter. It is an acknowledgement that the state cannot and should not attempt to force any one of us to do what we believe is immoral.

Dozens of first nations leaders wrote to every MP and senator. They said that, “Given our history with the negative consequences of colonialism and the involuntary imposition of cultural values and ideas, we believe that people should not be compelled to provide or facilitate in the provision of MAiD.”

We claim to be a pluralistic, free society. If that is true, it demands of us a tolerance of the moral views of others. Some have argued that protections already exist in Bill C-14. While I applaud the former minister of justice, the hon. member for Vancouver Granville, for ensuring that conscience rights were acknowledged in that legislation, acknowledgement is no longer enough. There are examples of medical professionals being forced or bullied into participation in assisted suicide against their conscience.

Dr. Ellen Warner, an oncologist who has served her patients for 30 years, told me about her experiences. She said:

I think it will shock Canadians to hear of healthcare providers being coerced into participating in MAID, yet such coercion has been happening frequently. A brilliant colleague of mine was bullied into becoming the physician legally responsible for MAID on his hospital ward. It was a great loss to us when he left for a different position. Two other co-workers told me that, despite strong, moral objections, they would carry out MAID if asked to do so for fear of losing their jobs. At one of our staff meetings, a psychiatrist stood up and announced that any physician who does not actively support MAID should not be working at our hospital.

Finally, some have suggested that medical professionals should leave their morality at the door. However, no one truly believes or wants that. As an example, no one would want a doctor to forget their morality if they were offered a bribe to move someone up on a waiting list. If we hold our medical professionals to a higher standard, we cannot then tell them to ignore their personal moral standards. As Dr. Ellen Warner stated, “In the absence of conscience protection, the group with the most to lose are the patients—the people we are all trying to help,”

This bill would protect the doctor-patient relationship by ensuring that doctors and other medical professionals are always able to recommend and provide the care they believe is best for their patient. Canadians need this bill to pass. Canada's medical professionals need this bill to pass. Additionally, they will need individual provincial governments to protect their rights through provincial regulations and legislation.

I encourage all members in this place to do our part and pass the Protection of Freedom of Conscience Act.

Woman regrets getting J&J vaccine after suffering blood clots, German scientists say they may know what’s causing clots

Symptoms started six to eight days after getting Johnson & Johnson’s COVID vaccine when doctors discovered blood clots in her lungs, stomach, brain and throat.

May 31, 2021 (Children’s Health Defense) – An Oregon woman developed rare blood clots after receiving Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) COVID vaccine earlier this month.

Barbara Buchanan chose J&J because it was a one-dose shot, and because experts declared the vaccine was safe after they lifted a 10-day pauseKGW8 reported. The pause in the U.S. was triggered by a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) investigation into reports of rare blood clots.

Buchanan said she now regrets her decision. The 63-year-old first noticed symptoms six to eight days after her shot.

“I had a low-grade temperature and I just felt really tired,” she said. “I thought I was suffering from seasonal allergies.”

Buchanan also felt severe cramping in her legs, which she attributed to arthritis. Then she started coughing up blood. Doctors at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center ran a CT scan and discovered blood clots in her lungs, stomach, brain and throat.

“There has been an association with a very small number of people getting this vaccine that can get this special kind of blood clot with low platelets,” said Dr. Ray Moreno, chief medical officer at St. Vincent.

Moreno said Buchanan had blood clots with low platelets, the pattern seen in cases that prompted the CDC and U.S. Food and Drug Administration last month to pause the vaccine. But Moreno said the reaction is “very rare” and people shouldn’t be afraid of getting the vaccine.

“As with any medication or medical treatment, there is always the possibility of someone having an adverse reaction. That’s why it’s important to talk to your doctor, do your research and make an informed decision,” Moreno said in a statement to ABC affiliate KAT2TV.

As for Buchanan, she said the experience was “devastating.” She was “very scared that I was never going to see my home again or my family.” She spent about a week at the hospital and was released Monday. The clots are still in her body and she will have to take blood thinners.

“I have a good support system at home, but I’m scared, I’m scared,” Buchanan said. “People don’t think when they go to bed at night that they’re not going to wake up the next day, I don’t know that anymore.”

According to the most recent data from the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), between Dec. 14, 2020 and May 21 there were 4,433 reports of clotting disorders and other related conditions. Of those, 1,842 reports were attributed to Pfizer, 1,168 reports to Moderna and 1,093 reports to J&J.

German scientists think they might know what’s causing blood clots 

German researchers on Wednesday said they believed they’ve found the cause of the rare blood clots linked to J&J and AstraZeneca COVID vaccines.

The researchers, in a study yet to be reviewed, said COVID vaccines that employ adenovirus vectors — cold viruses used to deliver vaccine material — send some of their payload into the nucleus of cells, where some of the instructions for making coronavirus proteins can be misread. This can result in proteins that can potentially trigger blood clot disorders in a small number of recipients.

Other scientists have suggested competing theories for the clotting condition.

Scientists and U.S. and EU drug regulators have been searching for the cause of rare but potentially deadly clots accompanied by low blood platelet counts. The condition has led some countries to halt or limit use of AstraZeneca and J&J vaccines.

Johnson & Johnson, in an emailed statement said: “We are supporting continued research and analysis of this rare event as we work with medical experts and global health authorities. We look forward to reviewing and sharing data as it becomes available.”

AstraZeneca declined to comment.

The New York Times’ bone-headed guidelines on COVID ‘mitigation’

The mainstream media continues to advocate for COVID prevention measures, such as mask wearing, lockdowns and PCR testing, while common sense and data prove such measures to be fruitless.

May 31, 2021 (American Thinker) – I get the New York Times' daily free newsletter in my email. You can save your rotten tomatoes. I refuse to pay for anything they print. But sometimes it's useful to stay in contact with the other side.

The NYT May 27 letter discusses the history of the COVID lab leak theory and declares that "the best mitigation strategies — travel restrictions, testing, contact tracing, social distancing, ventilation, and masking — are still the best mitigation strategies." My parsimony has once again been proven well founded. Let's break it down.

Mitigation is "the process or result of making something less severe, dangerous, painful, harsh, or damaging." That means that anything that makes getting COVID less likely is a form of mitigation. Ditto for making the bug not so nasty if you should happen to get it. All of the NYT measures fall into the first group. And, as they like to trumpet, we should "Follow the Science!"

Travel restrictions:

These have a level of plausibility, but once the bug is in-country, limiting travel between the U.S. and U.K. becomes meaningless. The old saw about closing the barn door after the horse is gone comes to mind. After the Allies created a foothold in Normandy, Germany didn't have a choice. The fight was now in the hedgerows, not on the beaches. Closing our borders made intuitive sense early on. But once it was clear that the virus was "in the wild," all travel restrictions lost their meaning.

"In the wild" is a crucial term. It means that, for practical purposes, the virus is everywhere. There will be more of it near a sick person, but not having anyone spreading it in your house doesn't mean that it isn't being spread at your workplace, grocery store, or gas station. And you will have no way to avoid it, because you have no idea who is infectious.

By March of 2020, I noted that the Wuhan Flu was already in the wild. The five million people allowed to travel worldwide from Wuhan during their outbreak made that a certainty. And pop-up hot spots closed the case. People with no apparent connection to known carriers were getting sick. This meant that any sort of mass "quarantine" was doomed to fail. It was like trying to stop mosquitoes with a chain link fence. Yet our "betters" insisted.

Testing:

Many people have written about the problems with the PCR test for COVID. In short, it was never designed to diagnose a disease and has no standards about how many multiplication cycles should be used. With enough cycles, everyone will test positive. In short, it's unreliable. But the CDC pushed it, changing its definition of a "case" to mean "a positive test, by whatever means."

Prior to the passage of the CARES Act, a case meant that someone was ill with characteristic signs and symptoms. A test might be done to confirm a diagnosis by distinguishing among multiple possible causes of those signs and symptoms. After COVID bonuses to hospitals became law, this proper definition of a case was discarded in order to get as much money from Uncle Sugar as possible.

Put bluntly, testing has been worthless, paying $13,000 extra for the appendicitis patient who happened to have been near a COVID patient somewhere in recorded history. It has inflated the power of petty tyrants, such as New York's Governor Cuomo, who was living large in the limelight of frequent "COVID Emergency" press conferences. My local county mayor demonstrated his love of power by complaining when Florida governor Ron DeSantis ended his regular TV face time by canceling the "emergency."

Testing is also largely worthless when a virus is in the wild. Positive tests all over become meaningless noise. Did I mention that COVID has been in the wild for over a year?

Contact tracing:

This is a piece of standard epidemiology. If you have a localized outbreak of a disease, you can track all the contacts of the index patient, possibly identifying the source and limiting its spread. But when the virus is in the wild, contact tracing is simply wasted effort. You aren't likely to find the source, and you won't stop the spread, because the bug is everywhere. But we've known that that is the case for over a year.

Social distancing:

The CDC recently changed its six-foot distancing rule to three feet. But it's based on — drum roll, please — zero data. That's right. If you talk, you release droplets, which are heavy enough to fall to the floor in a few feet. Six feet was related to droplets, which don't spread the virus. It's spread by aerosols, which stay suspended for hours. You breathe them in, the virus makes contact with the cells in your airways, and infection takes hold.

Aerosols are borderline impossible to stop. Just stand on one side of one of those Plexiglas dividers at the checkout line. If someone on the other side is smoking, you'll know it, because the smoke — an aerosol — goes right around it. The Guangzhou restaurant and Skagit Valley Chorale cases clearly show that social distancing has no effect. Most people who got infected were far more than six feet from the index patient.

Ventilation:

This is actually true! If you open windows or doors, allowing fresh air into a room, any aerosols will be diluted. Enough ventilation will prevent almost all infections. The same thing can be done by using a fresh air inlet for the air-conditioning system. I guess the NYT can't get everything wrong.

Masks:

I have written on this extensively and demonstrated that masks are useless. Aerosol scientists have tackled the question, showing basically that you can have a mask that's easy to breathe through but doesn't filter worth a crap, or you can have one that filters well but is difficult to breathe through. That means that you breathe around it. And if the total area of that leak around the mask adds up to the size of a quarter, you've lost two thirds of the filtration.

Of course, all the science in the world is meaningless if you don't measure the ultimate effect on disease transmission. And the verdict is in. Masks have had zero effect on the rates of COVID. It's not even certain that the vaunted N95s are much help in keeping health care workers safe. The reasons there are complex, but negative pressure rooms (ventilation) and U.V. sterilization (artificial sunlight) seem to be the most effective methods.

So what should we do with anything the NYT says about COVID? Get informed about the facts from reliable scientific sources, not echo chamber pundits. And as Jimmy Buffett sings, I'm looking for my lost shaker of salt.

The huge, destructive lie of the green agenda

The widespread green movement is not supported by logic or practicality, but only by politics and taxpayer money.

May 31, 2021 (American Thinker) – I’ve always thought the green energy movement was BS.  I read, early on, about birds dying because of solar “farms” and wind turbines. Reading about it again today as I started to write, I learned that the number of birds killed by large solar farms and wind turbines now equals an astronomical 2.9 billion. The process of procuring energy with either of these means seems recklessly cruel to wildlife.

“Green” power is also inefficient. The need for backup power to use when the sun doesn’t shine and the wind doesn’t blow means costly firing up of alternative means of power or risking brownouts. Those fossil fuel power sources, when allowed to run continually, cost far less versus intermittently powering them on.

Add in the problems with battery-operated vehicles, and the whole self-righteous green movement should simply turn brown and wither to nothing — and that’s exactly what it would do, absent giant government incentives and subsidies and municipal mandates such as Reach Codes, which require adding solar (and other things, from a laundry list of greenie ideology, depending on project cost). These codes also prohibit gas hook-ups in new construction on the grounds that gas is a pollutant.

In the last few days, I’ve read a couple of articles that restarted my thought processes about the green movement's human cost. Not that I hadn’t thought about that cost when people were freezing to death in their homes in Texas this winter, because (gasp!) turbines froze and snow and ice fell on the solar panels, making it impossible to heat air and water in an electric home.

I also thought a lot about John Kerry's quip about laid off pipe workers turning to solar panel manufacturing. I knew that it was a blatant lie because it’s a fact that most of the panels are produced by Uighur slaves in China.

As outlined in an article in American Thinker just the other day, child slaves in the Congo mine the cobalt for our “green” car batteries. As well, China, which now produces 90% of all rare earth minerals, many of them used in battery production, is buying up rights to mine them in Africa and in Greenland.

Given China’s track record in its home country, which has been to cause enormous pollution when extracting these products, there’s little hope that they will be more circumspect elsewhere than they have been at home. We have rare earths here in the USA, but we realize that extracting them pollutes the groundwater in an alarmingly bad manner, so we’ve opted not to mine them.

If you think about green energy logistics, really think about them, they are absurd. Take traveling in an E.V. The same American Thinker article calculated an extra four days needed in a trip across the USA to charge car batteries.

This article tries to spin E.V. travel positively, but it’s so contorted as to be laughable. It also notes that batteries degrade “over time” so that the “great” 100-mile charge now could be less later. I can testify to that, for I bought a hybrid in ‘09, and my mileage has diminished by a third even though I have fewer than 50,000 miles on the car. Once that battery is dead, it makes for more problems, too. First, the car’s worthless, no matter its low mileage. Second, the battery must be recycled, a near impossible feat.

The difficulty of recycling batteries, once they’re no longer useable, is a huge problem. We are creating slag heaps of toxic garbage. My chemist friend tells me they’re working hard to produce sulphur batteries, which apparently don’t need the rare earth components and are easier to dismantle and recycle. They’re not yet commercially viable.

Recycling solar panels is going to be a huge problem, too, as they have a lifespan of about 30 years. Not many have reached that point, but it’s coming, and soon. Wind turbines are a bit less dicey. They just seem to cause a huge amount of landfills, as opposed to toxics. This means some creative minds will figure out something good to do with them...maybe.

The only thing propping up the green movement that I can see is politics and “free” (taxpayer) money to subsidize it. This forced pivot to inefficient energy will have huge consumer costs, and it is destructive to human, animal, and bird life on the planet we love.

The safety of Holy Communion on the tongue vs Communion in the hand, during COVID-19

The arguments that Communion in the hand during COVID time is of less risk than Communion on the tongue, is not well grounded.

May 31, 2021 (FIUV) – Sergey Budaev, “Safety and Reverence: How Roman Catholic Liturgy Can Respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic” Journal of Religion and Health (2021), published May 24, 2021.

Among many interesting observations of this article, which cites a great many studies, is that while reception on the tongue does not appear to be more dangerous than reception in the hand, reception kneeling is clearly preferable to reception standing. We reproduce a key passage below; the whole article can be read here (or download the pdf here).

The Holy Species used in the Latin Rite is nearly dry and therefore is likely to have low adhesion of outside particles, further reducing the infectious risk. While receiving the Holy Bread, the communicant normally extends the tongue forward, requiring to hold breath for a while. This reduces possible respiratory output. The traditional manner of receiving Communion on the tongue is therefore unlikely to incur a high risk of infection transmission.

Traditional reverent practice of the Catholic Church incorporates additional elements making it even less risky in the current COVID-19 pandemic. The kneeling position of the faithful while receiving the Host would provide spatial distancing about 50 cm (Fig. 1a): the communicant’s face is located at the level of the chest of the Eucharistic Minister.

Provided the communicant stays silent, uses nasal breathing, and the duration of the interaction is short (very few seconds), this would not incur a high risk to the Eucharistic Minister (usually the priest whose safety is prioritized, see above). Furthermore, reduced verbal response of the communicant directs the droplets and aerosol towards the chest of the Minister, which is by far a lower risk than in the face.

In contrast, the typical position of the communicant for Communion in the hand is standing which is the direct, close, face-to-face interaction (Fig. 1b). Any verbal interaction between the Eucharistic Minister and the communicant would direct the droplets and aerosol directly to the Minister’s face and the Holy Bread. Inhaling such aerosol could be risky. The statistical argument points to an increasing probability that in a large group, at least one member is infected, further aggravating the risk to the Minister. If the communicant happens to cough or sneeze, Minister’s face and the Holy Bread become the direct target of both fine and larger ballistic droplets. This is very unlikely in the kneeling position.

Image

Another potentially important factor is that it would be much easier for the Minister to operate fine motorics when the communicant is kneeling than standing. This is due to a much better visual feedback and more convenient hand position when the communicant is kneeling (note that fine manual workers such as watchmakers use tables for routine work rather than stands elevated to the level of their eyes). This would make it easier for the Minister to place the Holy Host optimally and safely on the tongue, avoiding contacts with the mucous membrane and the saliva.

Even though the hands of the Communicant are often assumed to be clean, there is no guarantee. Again, the statistical argument (see above) points to an exponentially growing chance for at least one person with contaminated hands to occur as the group size increases. The typical position of the hands during the prayer—directly in front of the face—makes them susceptible to contamination by exalted and ballistic droplets and aerosol.

The assumption that Communion in the hand carries no or little risk is not well grounded and may in fact create a false sense of security potentially provoking more reckless behaviour of both the Minister and the communicant.

FBI harasses MassResistance: Agents come unannounced to our organization director’s home to interrogate him

The Biden regime has militarized the FBI and much of the federal government against conservative Americans, notably President Trump and General Flynn, but increasingly against conservative Americans generally.

May 31, 2021 (MassResistance) – The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has a sordid history of targeting those it disagrees with politically. In recent years that has been Republicans and conservatives. President Trump and General Michael Flynn are only two of its more prominent victims.

Even more frightening is the FBI’s tactic of finding or concocting some civil infraction they claim the person committed (sometimes using a previous surprise interrogation to catch the person “lying”) and then conducting a brutal early-morning, guns-drawn, swat-team raid at his residence. They terrorize the person and his family, search their belongings, and take their computers and cell phones.

This has happened to prominent Trump allies like Roger Stone and Rudy Giuliani, NSA whistleblower Bill Binney, and many others.

This totalitarian tendency has been building since the administrations of George H. W. Bush and Clinton. Americans should never forget what happened at Ruby Ridge (1992) and Waco (1993). The intent of this excessive force is to intimidate both the individual and the citizenry.

But the FBI’s aggressiveness has escalated tremendously against conservative and pro-Trump citizens since the Biden administration took control of the US government.

The pretext of having some connection to the January 6 so-called “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol has become the FBI’s justification to harass individual conservatives or members of conservative groups. Sometimes that is followed by the person being held in custody for weeks or months without bond or even actual charges, often under unusually harsh conditions.

It is not an exaggeration to say that this so-called “law enforcement” organization has become reminiscent of the East German Stasi and the Soviet Union’s KGB. A visit from the FBI can be the beginning of a nightmare for a citizen.

Over the past several months, MassResistance has had strong words to say about what really happened at the January 6 rally, the U.S. Government’s outrageous over-reaction to it, and the FBI’s reluctance to investigate the actual riots across America:

The BLM/Antifa Riots: More Questions than Answers. Why aren't the feds doing their job?

Antifa? Infiltrators? Eyewitness account of what happened at the US Capitol on Jan. 6

Is the US Capitol protest being used like the Reichstag fire in Nazi Germany?

Furthermore, MassResistance has strongly opposed other controversial Biden administration policies, such as the transgender movement’s aggressive targeting of children, as well as the radical LGBT agenda in general. So it’s not too surprising that, being a serious conservative activist group, this eventually attracted this administration’s attention.

The FBI comes to ‘question’ MassResistance

On Wednesday morning, MassResistance’s national Organization Director Arthur Schaper got a knock on his apartment door (in suburban Los Angeles). Two FBI agents flashed their IDs, identified themselves as “special agents,” and started asking him questions:

“We’re following up on leads from DC. We’re just curious if you went to DC or if you knew anybody who had gone to DC, and if you’d be willing to talk to us about any of that.”

Arthur answered,

“I did not go to DC. But honestly, I think this is a massive abuse of power which you guys are doing. It’s disgusting. I want to have a lawyer with me before I talk to you. You guys are violating the Constitution.”

Arthur asked them how they got into his apartment building, since only residents have keys to the complex. They said, “We’re not going to talk to you about that.” Arthur told them to “GET OUT!” They stared at him again, then turned around and left.

Afterwards, Arthur asked the management of his apartment building how the FBI got inside. They told them they have no idea, but the police and 911 responders have a code to get in for emergencies. Arthur asked someone who works with the local police department about that. He was told that the FBI would likely not go through the bureaucratic process of getting the code. They probably just waited for a resident to open the main door, and just followed that person in. In other words, they probably trespassed.

What happens after this? Is more to come from the FBI?

Later that day, MassResistance president Brian Camenker called the FBI offices in Los Angeles and Boston (where the MassResistance headquarters is located). He asked them for answers: What is this all about? What are they investigating? Who else are they going to be “visiting”? They wouldn’t give him any direct answers. Camenker told them that if they need to talk with us again, they should contact us and we’ll come to their office with our legal counsel. They said they’d pass the word on.

Final thoughts

It’s certainly frightening that the Biden administration has militarized the FBI and much of the federal government against conservative Americans. But as free people, we must stand up to it. We cannot back down or be intimidated.

We have actually heard conservatives say, “If I’ve done nothing wrong, I have no problem with the FBI coming to my house and asking questions.” That’s what General Flynn – and many others – have thought. But tyrants are skilled at manipulating what you might say. (Read The Gulag Archipelago for vivid descriptions of that.)

This is not the America we once knew. But we are doing our best to bring our country back.

The forced COVID-19 vaccination of children: A crime in progress

The current COVID-19 child vaccination campaign is conducted in bizarre circumstances. These vaccines are likely to cripple the immune system of a child in the long term, to gain some short-term protection, which is not needed.

May 31, 2021 (American Thinker) – Healthy children and young adults do not need to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Nevertheless, the current administration vaccinates them without informed consent and even using direct coercion (like giving the choice: vaxx or wear a muzzle). About 200,000 kids 12-15 are injected daily. This rate has been sustained since the start around May 12. Additionally, they continue vaccinating older teenagers.

Vaccine technology and data

The word vaccination is associated with kids in people’s minds, but COVID-19 vaccines were not designed for kids or adolescents. Neither were they designed to prevent a mild illness. They were created and rushed to production for emergency use only, for people whose lives are at stake. Corners were cut. Generally, vaccines elicit long-term (years or decades) immune responses, some of which might be not desirable. Vaccines can interfere with the existing immunity, affect the development of immunity to other diseases, can cause autoimmune disorders, etc. It used to take more than a decade after a vaccine’s development to start using it broadly.

No long-term studies or observations have been conducted for COVID-19 vaccines. There is not a single person in the world who received a COVID-19 vaccine more than 15 months ago. Tens of thousands of adult volunteers were vaccinated in a trial less than a year ago. They were observed for a few months. The researchers concluded that the vaccines are efficacious, and short-term side effects are mild-moderate.

The recent trial of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on kids 12-15 was a joke. It included only 1,131 children in the vaccinated group. Within seven days after the second dose, the vaccinated children developed fatigue (66%), headache (65%), chills (42%) etc. 50% of the kids had to resort to painkillers or antipyretics. This trial was incredibly small and short. For example, if the risk of immediate death from this vaccine is 1 in 2,000, this trial had only a 43% chance of discovering it. Nevertheless, the FDA expanded its emergency use authorization (EUA) to kids 12-15. Then somebody decided to inject tens of millions of kids with it. The dosage is huge for kids. It was selected to be effective in the elderly, who have immunosenescence.

This is an mRNA vaccine. This technology has never been used. No mRNA vaccine or other treatment has ever been approved. This first ever mRNA vaccine was designed against a completely novel coronavirus. The virus itself was not yet understood when the vaccine was developed.

So, this is a new vaccine, based on novel technology, against a novel coronavirus. What can go wrong?

This vaccine was not intended for children and was not tested for their safety, except for the joke trial described above. The EUA was extended for the vaccine to use on kids by the same FDA which authorized Gilead’s Remdesivir, later found ineffective and harmful. The same FDA also restricted and then withdrew the EUA for Hydroxychloroquine.

This is not a debate about vaccines or vaccination in general. It is about the health effects of a specific substance in children and young adults. There is no evidence that the COVID-19 vaccines are safe in the long term, and there is a lot of evidence for the opposite.

The science

The Pfizer vaccine and all other COVID-19 vaccines used in the U.S. and other western countries share the same defect: they are designed to elicit an immune response only to the spike protein of the coronavirus. Unfortunately, this is a relatively small part of the natural immune response. Additionally, the SARS-COV-2 spike quickly mutates. Even worse, the variants currently prevalent in the U.S. (B.1.1.7 and P.1) are especially nasty mutants (officially, variants of concern) which are partly resistant to the antibodies elicited by these vaccines.

When “vaccinated” individuals, who had no immunity to the coronavirus prior to the “vaccination,” are later exposed to the coronavirus, they will be unlikely to develop a broad immune response to the whole coronavirus. When their short-term immunity from the vaccination wanes and more resistant variants of the coronavirus appear, the young people are likely to become defenseless against them. They will be dependent on periodic booster shots, which might be harmful. The related concepts are antibody-developed enhancement and the original antigenic sin. Some research suggests that such vaccination can also interfere with immunity to common cold coronaviruses, especially in younger kids. These vaccines are likely to cripple the immune system of a child in the long term, to gain some short-term protection, which is not needed. The younger the patient, the stronger the impact of the vaccine.

Instead of mass vaccination, COVID-19 should be aggressively treated with antivirals upon onset of symptoms (IvermectinHydroxychloroquine, etc.). This will prevent the progression of the disease, limit transmission of the infection, and slow down the virus’s evolution toward more immunity resistant variants.

Herd immunity

About 25% of the 65+ population is not vaccinated. This age group is likely to benefit most from the vaccine and to have the least severe side effects. So why are kids being prioritized instead?

One argument for vaccinating children is to achieve herd immunity in the general population. This is a fallacy, even if we assume that herd immunity against COVID-19 is possible and that it requires a blanket vaccination of the population. A child can carry and shed only a small fraction of virus compared to an adult. Children quickly develop immunity on exposure and maintain it for a long time. The vaccine also has more severe side effects in younger people. Thus, a rational government would have considered vaccinating children only after almost all elderly and supermajority of adults are vaccinated. Only animal predators go after children when they cannot catch adult prey.

Illegality

Existing child vaccines (like MMR) are given for the child’s health. Achieving herd immunity is a desirable side effect. However, vaccinating children against COVID-19 solely for the sake of herd immunity is illegal and appalling.

Medical procedures involving substantial risk require informed consent. The current COVID-19 vaccination campaign is conducted in bizarre circumstances. Kids and their parents are not informed about the absence of benefits, known risks, and existing alternatives to vaccination. Probably for the first time in the history of this country, the patients are also prevented from obtaining such information on their own, as the federal government and complicit Big Tech are censoring all negative information about COVID-19 vaccines and vaccination. Withdrawn or denied information includes the following:

  • Children get no benefits from COVID-19 vaccination. There are exceptions, those who have certain health conditions. Their doctors might offer their parents to vaccinate them.
  • The risks include long term damage to their immune system, including ADE.
  • There is effective prophylaxis of COVID-19, based on Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin.
  • There are effective and safe treatments for COVID-19, based on Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin.
  • Some children might already have immunity to COVID-19.

Government-funded colleges and universities are demanding COVID-19 vaccines as well. This is coercion. Some states allow kids to be vaccinated without their parents’ consent. Unfortunately, there are organizations that solicit children for the purposes of purported COVID-19 vaccination over the internet and social media.

New from Archbishop Viganò: The Great Reset from start to finish

With the pandemic, little by little they told us that isolation, lockdowns, masks, curfews, 'live-streamed Masses,' distance-learning, 'smartworking,' recovery funds, vaccines, and 'green passes' would permit us to come out of the emergency, and, believing in this lie, we renounced the rights and lifestyles that they warned us would never return: 'Nothing will be the same again.'

May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – This first Festival of Philosophy [1] is dedicated to Msgr. Antonio Livi, of whom we all preserve a heartfelt and grateful memory, both for his witness of faith as well for his rare erudition in the theological disciplines. The learned Roman prelate is united to me in a particular way by his path of “conversion” to Tradition, which led him, a few years before me, to the assiduous celebration of the venerable Apostolic Liturgy, in perfect coherence with the doctrine in which he was extremely well-versed. Both of us found ourselves rediscovering the treasures of the Mass of our Ordination, with the consolation of also rediscovering our Priesthood in its fullness. If we wish to remember Monsignor Livi worthily today, I think that we cannot neglect the School of “Common Sense” of which he was the initiator, and that in this moment represents an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the present reality: the great upheavals of this past year, the so-called pandemic, and, more generally, the crisis in which both the world and the Church find themselves. The lack of “common sense” in individuals has in large part made possible this assault against God, against the Church, and against the human race that is represented by the Great Reset and the ideology it expresses. Irrationality, the abdication of reason, the annihilation of critical judgment and the denial of evidence are the true pandemic virus of our time, which in rebellion against God manifests a delirium of omnipotence and in collective madness reveals the just nemesis of this wicked challenge. Saint Paul exhorts us to a rational faith, rationabile obsequium (Rom 12;1), in which faith and reason, like two wings, make us ascend to the contemplation of the Truth, that is, of God Himself. Thus, the Apostle’s warning also implies a healthy distance from the thinking of the world: nolite conformari huic sæculo (Rom 12:2).

A significant precedent

When Stalin decided in 1932 to eliminate millions of Ukrainians in the genocide of Holodomor, he planned a famine as an instrument of social engineering, through which to nationalize agricultural lands and then allocate the profits to industry. Stalin wrote:

In order to eliminate the Kulaks as a class, the policy of limiting and eliminating single groups of Kulaks is not enough... it is necessary to break the resistance of this class with an open battle and to deprive it of the economic sources of its existence and development. (Josef Stalin, Questioni di leninismo, Rome, 1945).

Stalin then had wheat, beets, potatoes, vegetables, and every sort of food seized; he forbade any sort of commerce – does this sound familiar? – and confiscated the financial resources of the Ukrainians. Children fleeing the countryside were arrested and deported to collective farms called “kolkhozes” and to orphanages, where they died from malnutrition. The Central Committee prohibited movement – a sort of lockdown ante litteram – and accused those who denounced the massacre of the Ukrainians of being the enemy of the people. Holodomor deniers – using the term in its proper sense – maintain that the genocide of 1932-1933 in the Soviet Ukraine never happened or that it occurred without premeditation. The regime’s censorship contributed to hiding a tragedy that today is recognized by many countries as a crime against humanity and that, upon analysis of its method and goal, was also an example of a “Great Reset.”

If a Ukrainian had wondered how it could be that the Russian government, faced with a famine, did not help the population by sending food but rather forbade commercial activity and movement, thereby aggravating the situation, he would have committed the same error as many today who, in the presence of an alleged pandemic, ask why governments have preemptively undermined public health, weakened national pandemic plans, forbidden effective treatments, and administered harmful if not deadly treatments and are now forcing citizens – using the blackmail of perpetual lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, and unconstitutional “green passes” – to submit to vaccines that not only do not guarantee any immunity but actually carry serious short-term and long-term side effects, as well as further spreading more resistant forms of the virus.

Changing our point of view

Looking for any sort of logic in what is told us by the mainstream media, by our government leaders, by virologists and so-called “experts” is an arduous challenge that disappears as if by magic and turns into the most cynical rationality if we only have the intellectual honesty to overturn our point of view. We should therefore renounce the comforting premise which tells us that our leaders act for our good, and more generally the idea that our interlocutors are honest, sincere, and animated by good principles. 

Believe me, I understand that it would be easier to bask in the illusion that “everything will be fine” and that this pandemic really is a huge disaster that none of us were prepared for. It is much easier to think that the leaders of the world ought to be judged with grateful indulgence, forgiving them for mistakes that anyone in the same position could have made in the fight against the “invisible enemy.” It warms the heart to believe that the multinational pharmaceutical companies and international health agencies have nothing at heart but our good, and that they could never distribute, solely for economic calculation, experimental drugs that will end up making us all chronically ill or will exterminate us. And it is incredibly difficult and psychologically exhausting to face the daily domestic struggle we have to endure with relatives and friends, acquaintances and colleagues at work, simply because we consider the COVID narrative absurd. Being considered “conspiracy theorists” or “deniers” and being made the object of pity, contempt, or social condemnation is a thankless fate, especially when the people who believe in the global lie are dear to us. And it is even more thankless to feel discriminated against and ostracized even from our ecclesial community, all the more so when we see the ideological flattening in conformity with the mainstream narrative on the part of the bishops and the highest levels of the Hierarchy.

The reality is quite different, and not wanting to accept it makes us fall into that cognitive dissonance that social psychology has extensively studied. The reality is not only different but diametrically opposed to what we are being told, and it will be better for us if we want to understand it, recognize it, face it, and fight it with all our strength – also because the modus operandi with which similar cases have been carried out in the course of history is substantially the same.

Let’s put ourselves in the shoes of the proponents of the Great Reset

Let’s start from the point of view of those who organized this plot rather than of those who are suffering it unknowingly. If we put ourselves in the shoes of a Bill Gates, a George Soros, or a Klaus Schwab, it will not be difficult to understand that if we shamelessly declare that we have decided to decimate the world population by means of a gene serum, in all probability we will not obtain the consent of the masses nor the support of institutions, because making our criminal plan known would provoke a revolt and above all it would reveal our cards.

In reality, we have even declared our plans on several occasions; we have written them in the proceedings of our congresses; we have reiterated them in interviews and institutional meetings; we have even had them engraved on the Georgia Guidestones. Perhaps our admission of this criminal design sounded too brazen, and those who may have felt threatened preferred to look elsewhere, blaming instead those who raised the alarm, unheeded like Laocoon.[2]

And so we decide to tell the “beautiful fable” of global commitment, of eco-sustainability, of inclusivity, of resilience in the face of a virus that we ourselves probably created in a laboratory in Wuhan financed by us, presenting it as a deadly pandemic that requires immediate measures to be taken that are justified by the health emergency. And since there could not really be an emergency since it is simply a flu syndrome, an almost normal coronavirus just as happens in any other year, we have to ask the officials of the WHO – an entity financed almost completely by us and by our ally the Chinese communist dictatorship – to give directives prohibiting treatment, creating a high number of deaths attributable to COVID, and leading patients to death by imposing forced ventilation on them. Obviously the pharmaceutical companies, of which we are shareholders through the Black Rock investment fund, have every interest in producing vaccines without the usual experimentation period, because at the same time that treatments are prohibited, the laws protecting public health can also be waived, and the vaccines – or rather, the gene serums – can be authorized for experimental distribution. And to seal the pactum sceleris with the Chinese regime, we can snow it under with orders for masks, swabs tests, ventilators, and medical supplies, even though we know that they are useless and do not comply with health parameters. In the meantime, our “experts” – who are almost always former employees or whose institutes and consultancies we sponsor – sow panic in the media with projections and forecasts as absurd as they are terrifying, while journalists and television hosts prostitute themselves to their new boss, renouncing professional ethics and their duty to respect the truth at all costs. But we know well that money and fame can easily purchase the sycophantic collaboration and complicit silence of many, especially if they owe their positions to us, if we are shareholders of the newspapers they work for or the main buyers of their advertising space. At the same time, we ensure that public funds are allocated to fund the media, obviously with the implicit expectation that they will promote the official narrative and censor every dissenting voice. 

Healthcare is also in our hands, and for years now! We have progressively destroyed the public healthcare system, making use of our personnel in national governments, in the European Union, and in international organizations; and after destroying it we lamented its inefficiency and recommended that it be replaced with private healthcare, of which we are shareholders. What remains of public health is nevertheless set up on a business model that places profit before the provision of services, and in any case it is always the State that pays off the debts of healthcare companies. We know well that the profits to be made off the pandemic are quite tempting to many, even to the point of remaining silent in the face of hospitalizations that are useless or that will even lead to the death of the patient as a result of the treatments that we have mentioned instead of giving them home care. Three thousand euros per day for an intensive care bed for a COVID patient thus legitimizes the social alarm, because those beds are few – we have had their number reduced in recent years thanks to complacent politicians – and in order to increase them during a full pandemic emergency the State spends exorbitant amounts without going through a process of taking bids. If we then manage to use swab tests to make people believe that a very high percentage of the population is positive for the virus, we will guarantee the persistence of the state of emergency, and with it the lockdown and containment measures that destroy the economy. And this is exactly what we want: to cancel small businesses, forcing the population to purchase online everything they can no longer buy in the local family-run store, making money even off the pizza parlor or the restaurant that in order to survive is forced to use delivery companies of which we made sure we were shareholders. Finally, in order to make this assault complete, we increase illegal immigration thanks to our “humanitarian” foundations and NGOs, thereby increasing crime, diverting funds from citizens that are earmarked instead towards dealing with immigration costs, and making Europe be invaded by waves of Muslims who demand rights. Their presence allows us to inexorably break up the social and religious fabric of nations, in the name of “welcoming” and leveraging the sense of guilt, the danger of racism and the do-good rhetoric that we have even succeeded in getting the Catholic Church to accept. Obviously the social destabilization we have created allows us to promulgate laws against discrimination and racial hatred, repressing the dissent of those who feel invaded and threatened. Finally, thanks to the State debt due to the pandemic and the social emergency we have artificially created, we are able to impose the disbursement of funds from the International Monetary Fund, the Central European Bank, and the European Union, putting the population into the noose of debt and constraining it to invest those funds according to criteria and “conditionalities” that only serve to make the transformation of society, the technological community, and the “green economy” even more irreversible: this is the Great Reset. 

First we succeeded in creating fear of an “invisible enemy” and silencing the dissenting voices of scientists, intellectuals, and simple citizens; then we succeeded in making people believe that the salvation of the world depends on vaccines; now we are able to blackmail billions of human beings, who will be told that if they want to return to some form of loosening of the restrictions that have been imposed they must accept the “green pass” in order to travel abroad, go to the stadium or go shopping. The pressure we have placed on the masses is such that many will accept these forms of control. Soon they will put out their hands to have a subcutaneous chip implanted that will permit us to bring our plan to its completion.

All this is now a reality: both the vaccine passport, which will not necessarily be limited to COVID, as well as electronic payments in place of cash. “No one could buy or sell unless he had the mark” (Rev 13:17). Thus it will only take pressing a button to cancel a person from social life – and we will be the ones who press it. 

And as an insult against the civilization we hate, we force the masses to feed on beetles and larvae, extolling their nutritional properties and their low environmental impact, while we reserve choice meats for ourselves. We ask them to renounce private property in exchange for universal income, with which they can pay us the leasing for their 30-square-meter housing unit, obviously with zero emissions. We send them around on electric scooters made in China while we ride in custom-built cars that cause all sorts of pollution, cruise around on very expensive yachts and travel by helicopter. And while laid-off fifty year olds get jobs as delivery boys, we receive billions in dividends from our companies based in tax havens. We have reached such a level of enslavement of the masses that we have no reason to fear any revolt, which in any case would be quelled with truncheon blows as the media and our ally the Left remained silent. 

Even if the pandemic farce does not have the desired effects due to unforeseen events, we already have the next step ready: the climate emergency as the pretext for imposing the “ecological transition” and “sustainable development.” Or else we will start yet another conflict in the Middle East so as to provoke terrorist attacks in our cities and sow panic among the population. And if these tried and tested methods don’t succeed, we could invent – why not? – an alien attack, about which some of our friends are beginning to open the famous Overton Window: what better than extra-terrestrials can be considered an “invisible enemy” to feed collective fear, after decades of films in which we show invasions of creatures from outer space? On the other hand, the masses believe everything the mainstream media tells them – as we have seen in recent months – no matter how absurd and irrational it may be. If you see it on television, it must be true!

The modus operandi of the Great Reset

And now, taking off the shoes of Gates and Soros, we observe the entire operation from the outside, seeking to identify the recurring elements. The first, as I said earlier, is the secrecy of the criminal design of the elite and the need to cloak it in acceptable ideals. The second is the creation of an emergency situation – in the past it could have been a war fought with weapons, today a bacteriological war or a conflict fought financially – that makes recourse to the solutions that the elite has prepared and planned inevitable. The third element consists in the apparent solution that allows for the implementation of those “reforms” and limitations of personal liberties that in normal times would be unacceptable and illegitimate. This will split society internally, creating new enemies of the people and distracting them from the real architects of the conflict. 

If we think about the attack of September 11, 2001, we understand that the modus operandi is essentially the same, as also happened with the Gulf War or the Libyan Civil War. The terrorist threat was used as prophasis, an apparent cause, a false pretext for authorizing investments in the military industry, the tightening of controls on the populace, political upheavals, and to appropriate energy resources in Iraq and Libya and prevent the economic independence of the nations of the former French colonies in West and Central Africa. The destabilization thus achieved fueled the ethnic substitution plan in Europe and at the same time stripped Africa of the young generations that would have been able to make it prosperous and autonomous. It also struck the Catholic communities in the former colonies by fueling Islamic fanaticism as a prerequisite for bloody conflicts and now exports those conflicts to a de-Christianized Europe that inertly watches the daily burning of its churches, while a petulant Swedish girl is used by the system as an apocalyptic preacher of climate change and global warming. 

At the base of this modus operandi there is always a lie, that serves to hide the true intentions of the elite and makes us accept as inevitable those changes that, in conditions of relative normality, would have resulted in revolts that were difficult to stifle. The blaming of dissenters, the criminalization of those who do not accept subjecting themselves to the vaccine, the psychiatrization of “deniers” or “conspiracy theorists” are taking shape in recent months with the formation of detention camps, the prohibition of travelling without health checks and above all thanks to the pounding drum of the media. The spread of 5G technology, which in many countries has gone unnoticed due to the lockdowns, will allow population tracking by means of apps or a subcutaneous chip in constant connection with the internet.

The Great Reset has numerous precedents

The lie, therefore, is the consistent mark of the architects of the various Great Resets of the last few centuries. The Protestant Pseudo-Reformation was a Great Reset, which struck at Europe’s unity of faith, creating a laceration whose disastrous consequences are still seen today. The French Revolution was a Great Reset, as was the Italian Risorgimento, as well as the Russian Revolution. The two World Wars were Great Resets, along with the Industrial Revolution, the Revolution of 1968, and the fall of the Berlin Wall. Each time, if you notice, the apparent reason for these revolutions never corresponded to the real one. The selling of indulgences as a pretext for Luther’s revolt leveraged the desire of the German Princes to take possession of the monasteries and dioceses and had to obtain the spread of heresy in the world and the weakening of the Papacy, the first defense of Christianity. In France, the poverty of the people was a pretext for the cancellation of the monarchy and the establishment of the Masonic and anti-Christian Republic. The division of the Italian States and the aspiration to an ideal of national unity was the pretext for the destruction of kingdoms and duchies and the annexation of the Papal States to the Kingdom of Italy, whose monarchy was subservient to the Masonic lodges and in its turn was cancelled by them as soon as the task was completed. The oppression of the Russian peasants was the pretext for the elimination of the Czar and the establishment of the communist dictatorship. The claim of individual nationalities was the pretext for the First World War in order to cancel the Austro-Hungarian Empire and perpetuate ethnic conflicts. In the Second World War, Nazism – first financed and then combatted – was a pretext for colonizing Europe and subjecting it economically and culturally to American liberal capitalism and Russian communism, thereby weakening it. The condition of laborers was the pretext for exploiting them in the factories and feeding the Moloch of modern capitalism. Young people’s desire for freedom was the pretext for corrupting their intellect and will, for breaking up the traditional family with divorce, cancelling motherhood with contraceptives and abortion, and striking at the very concept of authority. The end of the Soviet Bloc and its satellite countries was the pretext for spreading liberal capitalism and consumerism and morally corrupting a people exhausted by seventy years of communist dictatorship, whose strenuous opposition to the New World Order is the reason for the recent and continuous attacks on President Putin.

The Great Reset also involves the Church

In this long series of Great Resets organized by the same elite of conspirators, not even the Catholic Church has managed to escape. She too, with Vatican II, saw a greater understanding of the liturgy by the people given as a pretext for destroying the apostolic Mass, cancelling the sacred language and profaning the rites. And the longing for unity with heretics and schismatics was the pretext by which conciliar ecumenism was inaugurated, which laid the ideological foundations for the present apostasy. The democratization of the Church, in the name of an alleged greater participation of the laity, has served only as a pretext for progressively undermining papal power and parliamentarizing the power of the bishops, who are today reduced to mere executors of the decisions of the Bishops’ Conferences. 

The lies of the various Great Resets

Like all frauds, those that are hatched by the devil and his servants are based on false promises that will never be kept, in exchange for which we give up a certain good that will never be restored to us. In Eden, the prospect of becoming like gods led to the loss of friendship with God and to exclusion from eternal salvation, which only the redemptive Sacrifice of Our Lord was able to repair. The revolution against the Catholic monarchies was obtained by the promise made to the lower classes, which was never kept, offering them prosperity and a reduction of taxes. Those who believed in the deception saw their world collapse and found themselves much more oppressed than before. The Industrial Revolution was accepted because it promised new jobs in the factories, but those who left the countryside or the family shop found themselves exploited on the assembly line, torn from the traditional rhythms of the village and crammed together in the bleak outskirts of the large metropolises.

With the pandemic, little by little they told us that isolation, lockdowns, masks, curfews, “live-streamed Masses,” distance-learning, “smartworking,” recovery funds, vaccines, and “green passes” would permit us to come out of the emergency, and, believing in this lie, we renounced the rights and lifestyles that they warned us would never return: “Nothing will be the same again.” The “new normal” will still be presented to us as a concession that will require us to accept the deprivation of freedoms that we had taken for granted, and accordingly we will compromise without understanding the absurdity of our compliance and the obscenity of the demands of those who command us, giving us orders so absurd that they truly require a total abdication of reason and dignity. At each step there is a new turn of the screw and a further step towards the abyss: if we do not stop ourselves in this race towards collective suicide we will never go back.

The lie, therefore. A lie that we also find denounced in Sacred Scripture: if the Serpent had said to Adam and Eve that by eating the fruit of the tree they would lose immortal life and all of the gifts that God had given them, we would still be in Eden. But what can we expect from the one who is “a murderer from the beginning,” “a liar and the father of lies” (Jn 8:44). Was it not thanks to lies and false testimony that Our Lord was condemned, accused by the Sanhedrin of having told people not to pay taxes to Caesar? Was it not with deception and blackmail that the High Priests pushed Pilate to have the Son of God crucified, threatening Pilate that if he found Him innocent he would set himself against the Roman Emperor?

The Great Reset is the last step before the New World Order

It is our duty to reveal the deception of this Great Reset, because it may be traced back to all the other assaults that in the course of history have tried to nullify the work of redemption and establish the tyranny of the Antichrist. Because this is in reality what the architects of the Great Reset intend. The New World Order – a name which significantly echoes the conciliar Novus Ordo – overturns the divine cosmos in order to spread infernal chaos, in which everything that civilization has painstakingly constructed over the course of millennia under the inspiration of grace is overturned and perverted, corrupted and cancelled. 

Each of us must understand that what is happening is not the fruit of an unfortunate sequence of chance occurrences, but corresponds rather to a diabolical plan – in the sense that the Evil One is behind all this – which over the centuries pursues a single goal: destroying the work of creation, nullifying the redemption, and cancelling every trace of good on the earth. And in order to obtain this, the final step is the establishment of a synarchy in which command is seized by a few faceless tyrants who thirst for power, who are given over to the worship of death and sin and to the hatred of life, virtue and beauty because in them shines forth the greatness of that God against whom they still cry out their infernal “Non serviam.” The members of this accursed sect are not only Bill Gates, George Soros, or Klaus Schwab, but also those who for centuries have been plotting in the shadows in order to overthrow the Kingdom of Christ: the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, the Warburgs, and those who today have formed an alliance with the highest levels of the Church, using the moral authority of the Pope and bishops to convince the faithful to get vaccinated. 

The corruption of authority is the necessary premise of the Great Reset

Along with an awareness of the criminal lie of the entire system, we must also take note of the corruption of authority and the failure of the social, political and religious model that is the child of the Revolution. Modern democracy has proven to be, once again, a deception with which it was desired to oust Christ the King from His lordship over individuals and over societies, under the apparent pretext of giving the people a power that has in fact been usurped by an anti-Christian and antichristic elite. When it is stated that authority does not derive from God but resides in the people; when religion is not considered as a supernatural transcendent principle but instead as an amorphous immanent sentimentalism or a variant of anthropology; when morality loses its bond with the eternal law inscribed by God in human nature and instead adapts to fashions, nothing prevents those who govern as well as the governed from being dishonest and simply pursuing their own particular interests, because there is no longer good and evil, reward and punishment, heaven and hell. Everything is then based on a perverted concept of liberty corrupted into license: one can betray, steal, kill, and lie without hesitation, without that fear of God that in other times was able to curb our inclination to evil: if not out of love for the Creator and Redeemer than at least out of fear of the punishment that our evil conduct would inexorably entail.

We find ourselves facing a political class without ideals, in whom the bonum commune was first replaced by political programs which they used to obtain consent, and today by the simple subservience of those who govern us to the interests who get them elected, pay them, and demand their absolute obedience to the demands of the New World Order. We have reached the point at which even the vote, which was once exalted as the highest expression of democracy, is considered an annoying tinsel, to be granted only if those in charge are certain that they can bend it in their favor, and where it is expressed otherwise it can be modified or ignored: the colossal electoral fraud of the American presidential elections is a striking example of this.

But if the politicians and world leaders are subservient to the globalist elite and do not pursue the good of the citizens, the social contract fails, and the authority with which they believe they are endowed is lost, since it has no ratification, either from above – since the supernatural principle and bond of authority have been cancelled – or from below. And this is nothing but infamous dictatorship and hateful tyranny – a tyranny that cannot be overthrown by appealing to the revolutionary principles that determined it, but by returning to recognize that “there is no authority except from God” (Rom 13:1), and that the “secularism” of the State is a blasphemy, since it denies the sovereign rights of the Creator and Redeemer over those whom He has created and redeemed. 

A crisis of authority that also involves the Hierarchy

That authority which, since the French Revolution, was usurped from the Lord and attributed to the popular will, had remained intact within the Church to some extent. Up until sixty years ago she proclaimed the Kingship of Christ not only over His subjects, over societies and nations, but principally over berself, recognizing Our Lord as the Head of the Mystical Body and the Pope as His Vicar on earth. Vatican II shifted the Kingship of Christ in an eschatological key, and the Church thus found herself a victim of that same democratic deception into which civil societies had fallen almost two centuries earlier. By weakening the doctrine on sin, making the morality of each situation unique, and recognizing the legitimacy of error and false religions, the Catholic Church dethroned herself with her own hands, reducing herself to having to beg for approval and legitimization from the powerful of this world, to whose orders she has submitted. It is no coincidence that Bergoglio has archived the title “Vicar of Christ” as being a thing of the past: if the Church is replaced by an NGO that preaches “green theology”, promotes the Inclusive Capitalism of the Rothschilds and organizes conferences on vaccines with Anthony Fauci, whoever presides over her does not exercise authority in the name of Christ but ends up being a puppet accomplice in the hands of the puppeteer:

He who, on earth, usurps my place, 

my place, my place, 

which in the presence of the Son of God is vacant, 

of my burial-ground hath made a sewer 

of blood and stench; whereby the Pervert, 

who fell from hence, is there below appeased.

(Paradiso XXVII, lines 22 and ff.)[3] 

In this crisis of authority – which involves both temporal and spiritual power – a great responsibility must be attributed to the so-called moderates, who appear to be the voluntary or involuntary fifth column within the social body. Among these we must include almost all of the representatives of the parliamentary oppositions in the various nations – the Italian opposition first of all – and the parties of the so-called center-right. Even those who criticize the illegitimate and unconstitutional rules enacted by the present governments under the pretext of the pandemic do not in the least question the ideological bases of free-market capitalism that today has merged with communism in an alliance that would have been inconceivable in other times. And they do not question these bases because they agree with them.

The error of the ‘moderates

The same mistake of deploring the effects without recognizing and fighting the causes is made by conservative Catholics, who while understanding the apostasy of the highest levels of the Hierarchy under the reign of Bergoglio, do not dare to admit that if it has reached the point of offering idolatrous worship to the Pachamama, this has been made possible thanks to Dignitatis Humanae, that the sabbath of Astana is the coherent application of Nostra Aetate, and that the German Synodal Path – that is, the declaration of schism without its official condemnation by the Holy See – is the logical conclusion of Gaudium et Spes. And there is no need to demonstrate that the conciliar documents are nothing more than the translation of revolutionary and Masonic principles into the ecclesial context. 

We know, however, that the lie is the emblem of the Devil, the distinctive sign of his servants, the hallmark of the enemies of God and the Church. God is truth; the Word of God is true, and He Himself is God. Speaking the truth, shouting it from the rooftops, and unveiling the deception is a sacred work, and no Catholic – nor anyone who has still preserved a shred of decency and honor – may shrink from this duty.

The response of the good

Each of us has been desired, thought of, and created in order to give glory to God and to be part of a great design of providence. From all eternity the Lord has called us to share with Him in the work of redemption, to cooperate in the salvation of souls and the triumph of the good. Each of us today has the possibility of choosing to align himself with Christ or against Christ, to fight for the cause of good or to make himself an accomplice of the workers of iniquity. The victory of God is most certain, as certain as the reward that awaits those who make the choice to enter the battlefield alongside the King of kings; and the defeat of those who serve the enemy is also certain, as is their eternal damnation.

Do you want to lose the supreme good that has been prepared for you, only for the sake of a quiet life and not to stand out from the crowd, out of cowardice and human respect, trading eternity for an apparent and ephemeral good? I exhort you to be witnesses of Christ, courageous champions of truth and goodness: on the benches of parliament, in hospital wards, from the chairs of schools and universities, from the altar and the pulpit, at work, in the office, in the shop, in the family, in your daily commitments and, yes, even in pains and trials. Be worthy heirs of the saints who have preceded you, remembering that you will have to answer for your silence, your complicity, and your cooperation with evil. If you can escape the condemnation of men, you will not be able to escape the judgment of God; just as you will be rewarded for the good you have done and witnessed to.

This rebellious and apostate generation can be fought with everyone’s contribution: from the doctor who finally denounces the harmful treatments imposed by criminal protocols, to the policeman who refuses to apply illegitimate rules; from the parliamentarian who votes against unfair laws, to the magistrate who opens a file for crimes against humanity; from the professor who teaches students to think for themselves, to the journalist who reveals the deceptions and conflicts of interest of the powerful; from the father who defends his children against vaccination, to the son who protects his elderly parent without abandoning him in a nursing home; from the citizen who claims the right to natural freedoms, to the artisan and restaurateur who do not accept the oppression of those who prevent them from opening their business; from the grandfather who warns his grandchildren about the dangers of the dictatorship, to the youth who does not allow himself to be seduced by fashions and influencers.

Let us restore the Crown to Christ the King that was torn from him by the Revolution

And when this farce has collapsed – because it will inexorably collapse, and it will collapse soon – commit yourselves everyone, with renewed zeal, so that the crown that His enemies have torn from Him may be restored to our king. Make Our Lord reign in your souls, in your families, in your communities, in the nation, in work, in education, in the laws and courts, in the arts, in information, in all areas of private and public life. May our most holy mother and queen, Mary Most Holy, who many times has admonished us about the dangers and punishments that await the world if it does not convert and do penance and may Jesus Christ reign in the holy Church, driving out the unworthy, the fornicators and the mercenaries. 

Only where Christ reigns is there true peace and concord: pax Christi in regno Christi. To Him, the beginning and end of all things, the Alpha and the Omega, may the confident and fervent prayer arise from each one of us and from the human family, asking Him to preserve us in His grace, strengthen us in virtue, and make us courageous witnesses of the Gospel so that we may thus achieve eternal beatitude in Heaven.

Good stewardship requires fidelity to the Church’s teaching on marriage

Here is one of the ways that the Church leadership should be leading the fight to protect the environment from man-made pollution that contributes directly to the worldwide plague of infertility and gender dysphoria.

May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — In recent years, Pope Francis and many other Church leaders have argued that man-made global warming has been established beyond a reasonable doubt and that Catholics have a duty to work for a reduction in carbon emissions to save the environment. I have discussed some of the weaknesses of the man-made global warming hypothesis elsewhere. In this article, I would like to point out one of the ways that the Church leadership should be leading the fight to protect the environment from man-made pollution that contributes directly to the worldwide plague of infertility and gender dysphoria.

One Man for One Woman for Life

The constant tradition of the Church has taught that God created one man for one woman for life from the beginning of creation, and that any use of the gift of sexuality, outside of the marital union with an openness to life, is a grave offense against God and the natural law. From the time of the Church Fathers, the account of Onan in Genesis 38 was understood to teach that Onan practiced birth control and that God took his life as a punishment for this capital crime. With the invention of the birth control pill in 1960, many Catholic Bishops and theologians began to call into question the Church’s traditional teaching on contraception. When the Vatican’s Birth Control Commission was convened to investigate the matter, the voting members of the commission voted 30-5 to overturn the Church’s constant teaching and to allow birth control to married couples. However, when Pope Paul VI published the encyclical Humanae vitae in 1967, he upheld the traditional teaching of the Church and predicted that the legalization and widespread use of birth control would undermine marriage and the family, while contributing to a general breakdown in sexual morality.

While the Pope’s predictions have been fulfilled in spades, and Catholic scholars like Janet Smith have documented the terrible effects of contraception on Catholic couples, the traditional teaching of the Church on holy marriage and the evils of birth control is rarely proclaimed from our pulpits or taught in Catholic universities, with the result that the overwhelming majority of baptized Catholics in the western world no longer see anything wrong with homosexuality, pre-marital sex, or contraception. As a further consequence of this failure to teach “the whole counsel of God,” millions of Catholic women all over the world now use the birth control pill to avoid getting pregnant. Like all intrinsically evil acts, this one has many unintended consequences. As reported by journalist Celeste McGovern:

About 50 million women worldwide are taking contraceptive pills, and it is the leading form of birth control in the U.S., consumed by about 10.5 million women annually, according to the Guttmacher Institute. Up to 68% of the contraceptive drugs being consumed are not absorbed, but excreted into sewage systems, according to the USGS study.

And according to one 2009 study of loss of fertility in rats due to EE2, about 3%- to 4% of women continue to take birth control inadvertently in the first trimester of pregnancy, raising concerns about their babies’ early exposure to endocrine disruptors, though it’s impossible to say how many babies and children are inadvertently exposed through drinking water and to what doses or what impact the hormones are having on adults, if any.

With unexplained soaring incidences of testicular cancer, infertility, childhood “gender dysphoria” in increasingly young children, who are confused about their sexual identity, and plummeting sperm counts, some scientists are asking if the fish in the study are like miners’ canaries: They are warning of a problem that has not yet been fully realized.

“Beyond the aquatic environment, the feminizing syndromes found in wildlife appeared to mirror reports of male infertility, genital abnormalities and testicular cancer observed in the human male population, collectively termed Testicular Dysgenesis Syndrome,” recounted Susan Jobling, director of the Institute of Environment, Health and Societies at Brunel University, London, in a 2013 paper for the European Environment Agency.

Endocrine Disruptors: A Modern Plague

God designed man’s and woman’s bodies to exist in the natural environment that He created for them, and He designed Eve and her daughters to experience the normal cycles of fertility during their child-bearing years. Contempt for the divine design of man’s and woman’s body has not only led to the widespread production of birth control pills, but also to the global use of other chemicals which affect sexual development and fertility. The pollution of the environment with endocrine or hormone disruptors has gone hand in hand with the global plague of declining fertility and gender dysphoria. According to Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet:

These endocrine or hormone disruptors have been found in the body fat and breast milk of humans throughout the world, as well as in terrestrial and aquatic animal life. They are often called gender benders, for reasons that will become apparent later.

Many of these chemicals — such as dioxin, DDT, PCBs, and others — have been linked with increasing rates of cancer and endometriosis. But there are ominous signs that they also damage ovarian function, contributing to the alarming rise in female infertility, ovarian cysts, PCOS, hormone-triggered depression and anxiety, premature ovarian decline or failure, and immune disorders.

Certain man-made chemicals can act like hormones in the body. Because they persist in the environment for decades or even centuries without being broken down, they are also called persistent organic pollutants, or POPs. POPs pack a whollop to our endocrine system and our bodies: They may accentuate or disrupt, or completely alter or even block the actions of multiple body hormones, and not just estrogen.

Since POPs can mimic or block testosterone, thyroid, insulin, or other hormones, they fit under the broader category of “endocrine disruptors” and can affect anything in our body that is governed by hormones, which means just about everything! There are already hundreds of known POPs, and potentially thousands more …

[N]one of these organic compounds existed before the 1930s. Most have been invented in the “chemical age” that started just prior to [World War II] … Simply put, they are now everywhere. Man-made endocrine disruptors, or POPs, are found in the plastic linings of canned goods, plastic food wrappers, detergents, herbicides, hair dyes, cosmetics, cigarette smoke, and auto exhaust—to name just a few sources. They may even be found in the water we drink, the food we eat, and the air we breathe.

They are also unwittingly added to the environment. Substances that are flushed down the toilet or rinsed down the sink can end up in the water supply, bubbling up in rivers and streams. A U.S. Geological Survey on 140 waterways in 30 states tracked 95 different pollutants, with some surprising results: 74% of the samples contained insect repellents; 48% contained antibiotics; 40% contained reproductive hormones (e.g., birth control pill estrogens and progestins); 32% contained other prescription drugs; and 27% had chemicals used for fragrances. So you may want to think carefully about how you dispose of your old prescriptions!

Since POPs are fat soluble, they become concentrated in the fat tissues of fish, animals, and humans. Anyone or anything at the top of the food chain accumulates the most POPs in body fat because each step in the sequence adds a little more of the pollutants to fatty tissues.

Environmental chemicals that mimic hormones may act in several different ways to disrupt normal body function. They:

  • Duplicate normal hormone responses but produce slightly different variations
  • Interact with receptors to block normal hormone function, to produce an abnormal response, or to exaggerate hormone effect
  • Interrupt normal signaling mechanisms that control our body’s ability to make proteins, enzymes, and other hormone
  • Alter genes that control critical pathways. An example is the Y chromosome, which has to be turned on at a certain time in development to determine the “maleness” of an embryo. If an endocrine disruptors block the gene that acts as a switch, a male embryo is destined to live out his life in a hormonal and physical “limbo land,” medically called interse
  • Interfere with neurotransmitters, causing a disruption in menstrual and reproductive cycles
  • Direct toxic effects on the nerve cells in the pituitary, the ovaries, and the testes
  • Bind to hormone receptors on sperm and oocytes (cells that become eggs) to cause abnormal function and impair fertility

Good stewardship requires fidelity to the Church’s teaching on holy marriage

If Catholic natural scientists believed in the true Catholic doctrine of creation, they would never support the introduction of endocrine disruptors into human bodies or into the natural environment, without exhaustive safety testing and for legitimate purposes. As documented in GMO Food: Boon or Bane?, most of the members of the Pontifical Academy of Scientists believe that the human body and Earth’s plants and animals are the result of an undirected evolutionary process, and it is this belief that makes them willing to support the genetic modification of food crops. The same evolutionary worldview helps to explain the PAS leadership’s support for birth control and the use of experimental vaccines that have the potential to “genetically modify” human beings.

As Michael Hichborn at the Lepanto Institute has documented, many charities supported by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops actively promote contraception and abortion, among other abominations. Pastors who want to sanctify the souls entrusted to their care and to teach them to be good stewards of the environment would do well to make a point of proclaiming the Church’s constant teaching on Holy Marriage and the evils of contraception—both of which find their Scriptural foundation in the sacred history of Genesis.

Joe Biden’s trifecta of medical horrors: an abortion champion in the White House

Joe Biden is ushering in radical, and heartless advances to the abortion industry, despite a staggering 47 states taking measures to protect unborn life.

May 31, 2021 (Life Issues) – As president, Joe Biden is eagerly doing the bidding of the abortion industry and funding unscrupulous research reminiscent of one of the darkest chapters in world history.

His administration wasted no time using your tax dollars to fund so-called medicine that is sinister, unethical, and deadly.

Here are three particularly disturbing actions.

  • Ushering in the era of “baby in a bottle” research, and we’re not referring to the mythological genie in the bottle.
  • Abandoning vulnerable women to a money-motivated abortion industry.
  • Dealing in body parts of aborted babies harvested from the likes of Planned Parenthood.

First, with the encouragement of the Biden administration, the International Society for Stem Cell Research has announced a new protocol that impacts the way they experiment on human embryos.

Previously they operated under a “14-day rule” which stipulated that they could conduct unethical experiments on human embryos, just as long as they killed them once he or she turned 14 days old.

As if this protocol wasn’t horrendous enough, they decided to jettison the two-week policy and replace it with no limit. The result is horrific “baby in a bottle” experiments on tiny babies with fully functioning hearts, developing brains, eyes, and ears.

As if to calm the troubled heart of research participants, these tiny human beings have been downgraded semantically to “ethically sensitive research material” in an effort to dehumanize their victims.

Second, the FDA, under the direction of the Biden Administration, is poised to abandon critically important protections for women who take the chemical abortion pill. This death drug is four-times more likely to require emergency intervention than surgical abortion. These protective measures were established to safeguard women from the profit-driven abortion industry.

Third, Joe Biden’s reversal of a Trump policy unleashed your tax dollars to empower the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to fund experimentation using the body parts of aborted babies purchased from the abortion industry.

Reports of the Nazis making lampshades from the skin of their Jewish captives rightfully alarmed and repulsed people around the world. Recently, it was revealed that scientists from the University of Pittsburgh grafted the scalps of five-month-old unborn babies onto the backs of mice. This ghoulish experiment was funded by the NIH.

How can the outrage of selling the scalps of unborn children be any less detestable than the atrocities perpetuated by the Nazis?

The NIH then rubbed salt into this wound by announcing it would no longer convene an Ethics Advisory Board to review proposals involving fetal body parts.

These heartless changes fly in the face of 47 states that have acted on the will of the people to protect their most precious renewable resource – unborn babies. Since the beginning of the year, a jaw-dropping 549 abortion protections have been introduced.

Consider this the people’s response to the extreme and twisted pro-abortion agenda of the Biden administration. It’s time Congress took our lead and grew the moral spine to bring Joe Biden’s trifecta of inhumane medical practices to an end.

Cancer death rates are up because of restrictive COVID protocols

The CDC, Fauci, and other medical influencers should be held responsible for the massive increase in cancer deaths, but I’m sure they will come through this without legal repercussions. Meanwhile, everyday Americans are losing loved ones because the medical industry decided to pick and choose who to care for in the COVID era.

May 31, 2021 (American Thinker) – The COVID-19 lockdowns have affected more than just schools, the economy, and how people socially interact outside of their homes – thousands of cancer screenings and treatments were skipped or delayed, leading to a rise in cancer deaths for the first time in decades. This is directly due to excessive COVID policies that pushed fear into the hearts and minds of people across the nation and the globe.

From 2001 to 2017 the CDC reported that overall cancer rates had been decreasing about 1.5% each year. Male cancer deaths decreased 1.8%, and female cancer deaths decreased 1.4%. This was considered a medical triumph. There was hope for many. Unfortunately, it was quickly destroyed by changes in medical protocol due to COVID rules put in place without proper research and consideration for all the consequences, short and long-term.

Last year people were constantly told to “stay home,” and be “socially distant.” The CDC, WHO, and corporate media constantly hammered fear into the hearts and minds of Americans. Many hospitals and doctors’ offices canceled routine check-ups. They even delayed necessary treatments for cancer patients.

My ex-husband’s father was directly affected by this. He had his cancer screening pushed back, only to later find that he had bladder cancer. The sooner this is treated, the better off his health would have been, but because of the constant focus on COVID-19, which isn’t harmful to 99.97% of people, his treatment options were delayed and even limited.

These limitations deterred him from making crucial medical decisions for weeks. Eventually, he decided just to let it go and enjoy whatever time he had left, but when the pain grew to be too much he sought treatment and was advised that the cancer was so advanced he had to have his bladder completely removed.

Since then he hasn’t been the same. They say “cancer changes a person” – from what I know it’s not the cancer so much as the hoops one has to jump through to receive proper medical treatment, especially during the pandemic.

This is alarming because cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, second only to heart disease. COVID-19 isn’t even in the CDC’s top 10 leading causes of death, yet medical professionals chose to focus on combating the virus over more deadly diseases, and now Americans are seeing the unfortunate outcome.

On May 15th The National Cancer Institute noted that approximately 15,000 patients got their cancer screenings from March of 2020 through June. That is a huge drop in numbers compared to the over 60,000 patients who got cancer screenings during that period the previous year. This is not the first report released on the subject. All throughout 2020, predictions of increased cancer deaths were published by the media and the medical industry.

Most recently, the Medical X Press reported that nearly 10 million Americans missed their cancer screenings throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. This data analyzed information regarding the three main types of cancer that need to be detected as soon as possible to afford patients a better survival rate: breast, colon, and prostate. This study, published in JAMA Oncology, found that breast cancer screenings alone dropped 90% in April of 2020.

An author of the study, Dr. Ronald Chen, is the associate director of health equity with the University of Kansas Cancer Center. He said, “As a physician, I wasn’t surprised to see that screenings had declined, but this study measures by how much.” He went on to emphasize, “This study makes it clear that this is a large public health issue.”

This “public health issue,” most recently claimed my aunt’s life. She was diagnosed with throat cancer too late and before we had time to fully process it, she was gone. But at least we’re now “allowed” to have funerals again, so my family got to give her a proper good-bye.

Despite this, I’m still looking at the data and the predictions, and none of it makes it any easier. I can’t stop thinking about all those videos of dancing nurses and doctors that went viral last year. To me, if a pandemic were reaching plague levels, medical professionals wouldn’t have time to choreograph dance routines and record themselves for clickbait. To me, the leading causes of death shouldn’t be ignored so our medical “experts” can panic over a virus that has proven to be a little more than a bad flu.

I am currently in the angry stage of grief. I realize this. But that doesn’t change the fact that more people are now dying of cancer. Preventable cancers. Treatable cancers.

The CDC, Fauci, and other medical influencers should be held responsible for the massive increase in cancer deaths, but I’m sure they will come through this without legal repercussions. Meanwhile, everyday Americans are losing loved ones because the medical industry decided to pick and choose who to care for in the COVID era.

Catholic school teacher: If ‘Pride’ flag flies at your Catholic school, withdraw your kids

The ‘Pride’ flag flying over Catholic schools is a sign of scandal, counter-witness, and capitulation to the spirit of the world

May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – As a Religion teacher and a parent, I urge you to take a hard stand against the ‘Pride’ flag being flown over our children’s school.

The Toronto Catholic District School Board, the Ottawa Catholic School Board, the Waterloo Catholic School Board, the Wellington Catholic School Board, the Thunder Bay Catholic School Board, the Niagara Catholic School Board, and the Durham Catholic School Board have all passed motions to fly the ‘Pride’ flag over their schools for the month of June.  If your children attend a Catholic school in any of these boards, you should withdraw your children from that school. Far better that they remote learn from home, are homeschooled or attend a secular public school which makes no pretenses to being Catholic or Christian.

The ‘Pride’ flag has been adopted by these school boards ostensibly as a sign of acceptance and inclusion.  But in fact, the ‘Pride’ flag flying over Catholic schools is a sign of scandal, counter-witness, and capitulation to the spirit of the world.

The Spirit of the World is an old-fashioned term, which has never seemed more apt. The scope and speed of social change is dizzying and frightening. At the forefront is the destabilization of the most basic truth about our being; our maleness or femaleness.  LGBTQ2S+ includes a plus symbol at the end of the acronym because of the ever-expanding list of gender identities.  These are not merely tolerated in a spirit of liberal pluralism.  They are championed.  And everything else, especially “cis-gender hetero-normativity”, is required to take a knee and repent as a systemic oppressor.

This is a scandal and a counter-witness to our children because it belies the most essential truth about our humanity. Genesis 1 reads: God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them.

Our maleness and femaleness are not “accidents”, that is, non-essential traits like hair color or complexion.  They are not variables to be swapped out like parts on a Transformer doll.  Persons are not an existential blank slate, choosing to be male or female or other.  This is obvious both through Revelation and through nature.

Genesis says, “male and female he created them.” It is important to note that quoting this very familiar scripture may well constitute hate speech in Canada. But it is absolutely essential to the Catholic understanding of human personhood. The fulfillment of sexuality through procreation is a reflection of the Holy Trinity.

The Catholic Church teaches that God is a unity of three Persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Created in God’s image, we are a reflection of the Holy Trinity.  The Church describes the Holy Spirit as the personification of the love between the Father and the Son.  Just as the Holy Spirit is the personification of the love between the Father and the Son, in a similar way, the child is the personification of the love between the father and the mother.  Human sexuality, maleness and femaleness, the fruitful love between a husband and wife is a theophany- an imitation and revelation of the nature of God.

At the natural level, every cell in our bodies is informed by our DNA, which is either XX or XY. Every cell in our bodies is either male or female. But for humans, unlike other animals, our sexuality is not merely instinctive.  As children and throughout our lives we are socialized into our understandings of maleness and femaleness.  For two generations our sexual socialization has been warped by contraception, abortion, and celebrated promiscuity.  This has progressively estranged men and women and left many of us despondent at the possibility of true love and friendship between men and women.  Especially in the past two decades, fewer and fewer people are getting married or even living common law.  In 2017, for the first time in history, “single adult living alone” became the most common household type in Canada.  When man awoke to find the woman made from his rib, he said: “this at last, is bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh.” But as a culture, we have lost our sense of being made for each other. To get a sense of the scope of the change we are witnessing, read this piece from Rod Dreher.

Catholicism is sacramental.  A sacrament is a sign which achieves what it signifies.  For example, in Baptism, water both signifies and achieves cleansing.  External signs both point to and create internal realities. As Fr. Raymond D’Sousa points out, Catholic Churches do not fly the Canadian flag from their steeples because to do so would obscure a more fundamental truth, namely, that we live under the sign of the Cross. But to fly the ‘Pride’ flag over our schools – or our churches for that matter – would not merely obscure, it would contradict both nature and our faith.

But as dark as this is, as Catholics, we know that faithfulness to Christ is the only way to truly love our children.  As Catholic trustees, administrators, teachers, and parents we must take heart and speak up for what is right.  As Cardinal Collins wrote: “Parents make a clear choice when they decide that their children will attend a Catholic school. They rightly expect that trustees, principals, teachers – all partners in education – will ensure that Catholic teaching is presented, lived and infused in all that we do.”   

If your Catholic school board decides to fly the ‘Pride’ flag over your children’s Catholic school, you should make the hard choice and remove your children from that school.

Lab leak wars: China changes its own COVID-19 origin story, blames US for outbreak

Beijing now claims that US lab leak is responsible for pandemic.

May 31, 2021 (The Dossier) – The best defense is a good offense, and that’s exactly how China is strategically reacting to continuing pressure building on Beijing officials to come clean about a possible viral lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in mid to late 2019.

The stakes are high, as acknowledging the lab leak thesis would implicate the Chinese Communisty Party (CCP) in one of the greatest scandals in modern history. So instead of discussing the lab leak thesis, China is attempting to redirect blame at the United States, claiming that America is the true culprit for the spread of COVID-19.

In recent days, Beijing has decided to amp up the aggression in their war of words against the United States. The CCP is engaged in an active information operation, using virtually all of its public diplomacy tools to claim that the origin of COVID-19 is actually the Fort Detrick U.S. military lab in the Washington, D.C. area.

China’s advancement of the idea that there is a U.S. origin for COVID-19 is not new, but it is more settled on a particular culprit. In fact, it began in early 2020, but it has made a comeback thanks to Biden Administration officials finally changing their rhetoric about the Wuhan lab leak thesis, in addition to the once-maligned idea infiltrating the American corporate press.

In recent days, I’ve collected an assortment of claims from high-ranking Chinese officials and state-media outlets. Unsurprising for a top-down authoritarian regime, the messaging campaign is consistent and relentless in attempting to advance their particular narrative.

The U.S. biodefense lab in Fort Detrick, which is located just outside of the D.C. Beltway, was temporarily shut down in August of 2019 after failed safety inspections. The laboratory was known to handle disease-causing material, such as Ebola and bacterias responsible for plague and tularemia. 

There is no public evidence of any outbreak related to the temporary closure of the U.S. facility in Frederick, Maryland. Unlike in the Wuhan lab, where there is a sustained and documented evidence trail, there is no public information regarding the U.S. lab and the handling of viruses similar to the one that causes COVID-19. While this cannot be ruled out, the lack of evidence means that China’s claims are nothing more than blind allegations. Without any particular proof, Chinese officials are attempting to link a July, 2019 respiratory outbreak at a nursing home in Virginia to the closure of Fort Detrick, which is about an hour drive away from the facility.

China’s accusations are particularly baffling because they contradict the CCP’s initial claims about the origin of COVID-19. 

In a joint paper published in early 2020 with the World Health Organization, the Chinese government pointed to a crossover event potentially arising from the Wuhan Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market. The paper ruled out the idea of a lab leak, and urged a focus on a zoonotic reservoir thesis.

However, China’s tone rapidly changed when President Trump began to hold Beijing’s feet to the fire for a potential lab leak from a high-level lab in Wuhan. When President Trump placed blame squarely at the feet of the Chinese government for the global pandemic, Beijing retaliated by reinventing their origin story.

It appears that the CCP will continue hammering the Fort Detrick theory with the hopes that it catches on with an audience outside of Beijing. For now, the information operation has failed to gain momentum, unlike China’s wildly successful disinformation campaign to shut down the entire world and convince its adversaries of the merits of lockdowns.

On Thursday, Chinese authorities on social media continued to demand an inquiry into Fort Detrick, continuing their attempts to redirect the focus from the Wuhan lab to Fort Detrick:

The rhetoric is surely heating up, but what remains to be seen is whether the Biden Administration will continue to hold China accountable in the face of major escalation from Beijing.

Wuhan lab deleted files showing Fauci authorized funding for risky coronavirus experiments

In March, the Wuhan Institute of Virology deleted mentions of its collaboration with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, directed by Dr. Anthony Fauci. It also deleted descriptions of gain-of-function research on the SARS virus.

Story at-a-glance:

·      The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) — a division of the National Institute of Health (NIH) headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci since 1984 — has, for years, provided grants to the EcoHealth Alliance and others to conduct gain-of-function (GOF) research on coronaviruses.

·      In a May 11, 2021, Senate hearing, Fauci denied ever having funded GOF research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). This despite clear documentation proving otherwise.

·      In March 2021 the WIV deleted mentions of its collaboration with the NIAID/NIH and other American research partners from its website. It also deleted descriptions of GOF on the SARS virus.

·      The NIH/NIAID has funded GOF research to the tune of at least $41.7 million. Up until 2014, this research was conducted by Ralph Baric at the University of North Carolina. After 2014, when federal funding of GOF was banned, such research was funneled to the WIV via the EcoHealth Alliance.

·      In August 2020, the NIAID announced a five-year, $82-million investment in a new global network of Centers for Research in Emerging Infectious Diseases that will conduct GOF experiments to “determine what genetic or other changes make [animal] pathogens capable of infecting humans.”

May 31, 2021 (Children’s Health Defense) – As reported in several previous articles, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) — a division of the National Institute of Health (NIH) headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci since 1984 — has, for years, provided grants to the EcoHealth Alliance and others to conduct gain-of-function research on coronaviruses.

EcoHealth Alliance, in turn, farmed out some of this research to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), from whence SARS-CoV-2 appears to have emerged. In a May 11, 2021, Senate hearing, Sen. Rand Paul questioned Fauci on the NIAID’s funding of GOF research on bat coronaviruses, some of which was conducted at the WIV.

Fauci denied the charge, saying “The NIH has not ever, and does not now, fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute.” It’s a curious denial, considering the NIH’s funding of such research has been thoroughly documented and can be easily double-checked.

When Paul asks Fauci if the NIAID funded Dr. Ralph Baric’s GOF research, Fauci claims Baric “does not do gain-of-function research, and if it is, it is according to the guidelines and is being conducted in North Carolina.” Paul shoots back, saying:

“You don’t think turning a bat virus spike protein, that he got from the Wuhan Institute into the SARS virus, is gain-of-function? You’d be in a minority, because at least 200 scientists have signed a statement from the Cambridge Working Group that it is gain-of-function.”

In the video above, Jimmy Dore reviews the apparent lies dished out by Fauci during the Senate hearing. In the Truth in Media report below, investigative journalist Ben Swann lays out some of the proof, showing Fauci’s dishonesty.

“What’s insane about this exchange is that Fauci is clearly and probably lying … to Congress, which is a crime … and he’s lying to the American public,” Swann says.

NIH/NIAID has funded gain-of-function research

As reported by Swann, the NIH/NIAID has funded GOF research to the tune of at least $41.7 million. Up until 2014, this research was conducted by Baric at the University of North Carolina (UNC). In 2014, the U.S. government issued a moratorium on federal gain-of-function research funding due to safety, ethical and moral concerns raised within the scientific community.

It was at this point, in 2014, that funding for GOF research started being funneled through the EcoHealth Alliance to the WIV. Swann reviews documents proving Fauci lied to Congress, including a paper titled “SARS-Like WIV1-CoV Poised for Human Emergence,” submitted to PNAS in 2015 and subsequently published in 2016. In this paper, the authors state that:

“Overall, the results from these studies highlight the utility of a platform that leverages metagenomics findings and reverse genetics to identify prepandemic threats.

For SARS-like WIV1-CoV, the data can inform surveillance programs, improve diagnostic reagents and facilitate effective treatments to mitigate future emergence events. However, building new and chimeric reagents must be carefully weighed against potential gain-of-function (GOF) concerns.”

At the end of that paper, the authors thank “Dr. Zhengli-Li Shi of the Wuhan Institute of Virology for access to bat CoV sequences and plasmid of WIV1-CoV spike protein.” They also specify that the research was supported by the NIAID under the grant awards U19AI109761 and U19AI107810, which together total $41.7 million.

As noted by Swann, this paper clearly spells out that the NIAID spent $41.7 million on GOF research, with the aim of determining how bat coronaviruses can be made more pathogenic to humans, and that this research continued after the 2014 moratorium on such funding was implemented.

NIAID viewed Baric’s research as GOF

What’s more, a letter from the Department of Health and Human Services to the director of proposals at UNC Chapel Hill, discussing grant U19AI107810, also spells this out in black and white. The October 21, 2014, letter states, in part:

“NIAID has determined that the above referenced grant may include Gain of Function (GOF) research that is subject to the recently-announced U.S. Government funding pause … The following specific aims appear to involve research covered under the pause: Project 1: Role of Uncharacterized Genes in High Pathogenic Human Coronavirus Infect — Ralph S. Baric, Ph.D. — Project Leader.

Specific Aim 1. Novel Functions in virus replication in vitro. Specific Aim 3. Novel functions in virus pathogenesis in vivo … As your grant is currently funded, this pause is voluntary.”

In other words, the NIAID authorized the continuation of what it admitted was gain-of-function research — simply because the grant had already been funded — and it did so after the ban on such funding was put into place.

NIAID authorized GOF research, bypassing review board

But that’s not all. After the moratorium was lifted in 2017, a special review board, the Potential Pandemic Pathogens Control and Oversight (the P3CO Review Framework), was created within the DHHS to evaluate whether grants involving dangerous pathogens are worth the risks. The review board is also responsible for ensuring proper safeguards are in place for approved research.

According to Rutgers University professor Richard Ebright, an NIH grant for research involving the modification of bat coronaviruses at the WIV was sneaked through because the NIAID didn’t flag it for review. In other words, the WIV received federal funding from the NIAID without the research first receiving a green-light from the HHS review board.

The NIAID apparently used a convenient loophole in the review framework. As it turns out, it’s the funding agency’s responsibility to flag potential gain-of-function research for review. If it doesn’t, the review board has no knowledge of it.

According to Ebright, the NIAID and NIH have “systemically thwarted — indeed systematically nullified — the HHS P3CO Framework by declining to flag and forward proposals for review.”

NIAID is also committed to continued GOF research

Lastly, Fauci is also clearly committed to continuing GOF research, seeing how the NIAID, back in August 2020, announced a five-year, $82-million investment in a new global network of Centers for Research in Emerging Infectious Diseases.

Peter Daszak‘s EcoHealth Alliance will receive $7.5 million from this grant, and planned research will include GOF-type experiments that the NIAID says will “determine what genetic or other changes make [animal] pathogens capable of infecting humans.”

Wuhan lab deleted documents showing Fauci’s NIAID funding

All of that basically serves as backstory to the latest development. It’s now been discovered that the WIV quietly deleted all mentions of its collaboration with Fauci’s NIAID, the NIH and other American research partners from its website shortly after Fauci testified in a Senate hearing in March 2021, when he went head to head with Sen. Rand Paul on mask-wearing. As reported May 15, 2021, by The National Pulse:

“March 21, 2021, the lab’s website listed six U.S.-based research partners: University of Alabama, University of North Texas, EcoHealth Alliance, Harvard University, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the United States and the National Wildlife Federation.

One day later, the page was revised to contain just two research partners — EcoHealth Alliance and the University of Alabama. By March 23, EcoHealth Alliance was the sole partner remaining.

EcoHealth Alliance is run by long-standing Chinese Communist Party-partner Dr. Peter Daszak, who National Pulse Editor-in-Chief Raheem Kassam has repeatedly claimed will be the first ‘fall guy’ of the Wuhan lab debacle …

Beyond establishing a working relationship between the NIH and the Wuhan Institute of Virology, now-deleted posts from the site also detail studies bearing the hallmarks of gain-of-function research conducted with the Wuhan-based lab.”

Altered WIV page admits GOF research with American partners

Indeed, a now-deleted WIV web page titled “Will SARS Come Back?” stated that:

“Prof. Zhengli Shi and Xingyi Ge from WIV, in cooperation with researchers from University of North Carolina, Harvard Medical School, Bellinzona Institute of Microbiology … examine the disease potential of a SARS-like virus, SHC014-CoV, which is currently circulating in Chinese horseshoe bat populations.

Using the SARS-CoV reverse genetics system, the scientists generated and characterized a chimeric virus expressing the spike of bat coronavirus SHC014 in a mouse-adapted SARS-CoV backbone.

The results indicate that group 2b viruses encoding the SHC014 spike in a wild-type backbone can efficiently use multiple orthologs of the SARS receptor human angiotensin converting enzyme II (ACE2), replicate efficiently in primary human airway cells and achieve in vitro titers equivalent to epidemic strains of SARS-CoV.

Evaluation of available SARS-based immune-therapeutic and prophylactic modalities revealed poor efficacy; both monoclonal antibody and vaccine approaches failed to neutralize and protect from infection with CoVs using the novel spike protein.

On the basis of these findings, they synthetically re-derived an infectious full-length SHC014 recombinant virus and demonstrated robust viral replication both in vitro and in vivo …”

Again, while Fauci insists Baric is “not doing any kind of GOF research,” and “if he is,” then he’s doing it at UNC and not in China, the WIV’s web page clearly refutes this. GOF research was done at the WIV, in partnership with UNC researchers, of which Baric is a leading one.

The WIV’s deletions of American research partners from its website (with the exception of EcoHealth Alliance), and its deletion of the article discussing genetic research on the SARS virus raise a host of questions and appears to be yet another attempt at a cover-up. The surprising thing is that they’re now covering up American involvement and not just their own.

Chinese-American GOF research example

The WIV and the Wuhan University School of Public Health are both listed as subcontractors for EcoHealth Alliance under a $3.7-million NIH grant titled, “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence.”

The two institutions also worked as collaborators under another $2.6-million grant to research the “Risk of Viral Emergence from Bats,” and under EcoHealth Alliance’s largest single source of funding, a $44.2 million sub-grant from the University of California at Davis for the PREDICT project (2015-2020).

Part of the PREDICT grant went to funding GOF experiments by WIV scientist Zhengli and Baric with the UNC. In this experiment, Zhengli and Baric used genetic engineering and synthetic biology to create a “new bat SARS-like virus … that can jump directly from its bat hosts to humans.” A request by Zhengli and Baric to continue their research during the moratorium on GOF was approved by the NIH. Daszak described Zhengli and Baric’s work in a 2019 interview:

“You can manipulate them [coronaviruses] in the lab pretty easily. Spike protein drives a lot of what happens with the coronavirus, zoonotic risk. So, you can get the sequence, you can build the protein, and we work with Ralph Baric at UNC to do this. Insert it into a backbone of another virus, and do some work in the lab.”

The research was published in the journal Nature in 2015. As a condition of publication, Nature, like most scientific journals, requires authors to submit novel DNA and RNA sequences to GenBank, the U.S. National Center for Biotechnology Information Database. Curiously, the new SARS-like virus Zhengli and Baric published in 2015 wasn’t deposited in GenBank until May 2020.

Fauci has accomplished great deal of harm

It remains to be seen whether Daszak is in fact being groomed as the fall guy in this saga. Clearly, he’s innocent in the lab origin cover-up. He somehow ended up on two separate commissions charged with investigating the origin of SARS-CoV-2 — one by the WHO and one by The Lancet — having already played a central role in the plot to obscure the lab origin of SARS-CoV-2 by crafting a scientific statement condemning such inquiries as “conspiracy theory.”

Letting Fauci off the hook is not an option, however. Like Daszak, Fauci has spent the last year denouncing the possibility that COVID-19 could be the result of a lab leak, all while knowing the kinds of research his agency funded there.

He’s been a longtime defender and promoter of GOF research on animal viruses in general, saying while he was working on GOF with bird-flu viruses such research is worth the risk because it allows scientists to prepare for pandemics. However, this kind of research clearly has not improved governments’ pandemic responses one whit.

Fauci has also flip-flopped endlessly when it comes to mask recommendations, and helped suppress one of the most effective, safest and least expensive COVID-19 remedies, hydroxychloroquine, despite his knowledge of a 2005 study showing it’s an effective remedy against SARS coronavirus.

The study was published in Virology Journal, which is the official publication of the NIH, so it’s hard to believe he was unaware of it. But rather than protect public health and save lives using hydroxychloroquine, Fauci promoted the ineffective, dangerous, and expensive drug Remdesivir and COVID-19 gene therapies instead.

Fauci also knew (and has admitted) that using a PCR test with a cycle threshold (CT) above 35 renders it useless because at that point, you’re just detecting dead nucleotides. No live virus can be detected at CTs that high. As early as March 2020, he knew up to 90% of positive PCR tests were false positives and that these people really weren’t sick, yet he said and did nothing.

Now, as COVID-19 vaccines are taking their toll, with vaccine injury reports that show they are possibly disabling and killing tens of thousands around the world, Fauci is defending the universal use of the shots and downplaying their lethality.

According to Fauci, deaths from the vaccines have to be “put into context with the population they occurred in.” What he’s referring to are cases where old people died shortly after receiving their COVID shots. Old people die, so therefore you shouldn’t blame it on the vaccine.

This is hypocrisy at its finest. When seniors die before vaccination, it’s due to COVID-19 and something must be done to prevent it, but when they die after vaccination, they die of natural causes and no preventive action is necessary. Fauci’s dismissal of vaccine deaths also overlooks the fact that many young, healthy people have reported serious adverse reactions or even died within hours or days of their vaccinations.

Gain-of-function research is the real threat

I believe GOF research cooperation and sharing between nations is such that blame will ultimately be shared by multiple parties. The key issue, really, if SARS-CoV-2 did in fact come from a lab, is how do we prevent another lab escape? And, if it turns out to have been a genetically manipulated virus, do we allow gain-of-function research to continue?

I believe the answer is to ban research that involves making pathogens more lethal to humans. As it stands, the same establishment that is drumming up panic by warning of the emergence of new, more infectious and dangerous variants is also busy creating them. They just never tell you about that part.

Already, scientists have figured out a way to mutate SARS-CoV-2 such that it evades human antibodies. Were this mutated virus to ever get out, we’d be in serious trouble. While mankind has created several outbreaks, nature seems to have a way of NOT mutating animal viruses into global killers. So, the hypocrisy needs to end.

World leaders need to realize that funding and defending gain-of-function research is the real threat here. I believe Fauci’s lies are a pathetic attempt to hide his agency’s involvement with GOF research that may have resulted in a global crisis.
