Volume 77, no. 12 December 2021
A state of emergency, as from a tornado, flood, wildfire, civil unrest, or even a plague, is temporary. Something that permanently cancels traditions, civil rights, existing law, family ties, friendships, and long-standing institutions is a revolution.
In 1665, the Black Plague killed up to 100,000 of London’s population of about 460,000, about 20%. The 1918 pandemic influenza killed about 675,000 of 103 million Americans, about 0.66%. To date, nearly 800,000 U.S. deaths are attributed to COVID-19, or 0.26%. It is said to have “become the deadliest pandemic in American history” (https://tinyurl.com/yu3nrk2n)—and the only one to threaten our way of life.
Alarming daily news reports about this respiratory virus continued, even when the excess all-cause mortality rate had fallen to nearly normal. The majority of adults responded by getting the COVID-19 jabs, yet the mortality rate is now rising rapidly (tinyurl.com/5bf2vb83). In 24 countries and 16 states, cases reached all-time highs after vaccine rollouts (tinyurl.com/4avtnbwf). The least vaccinated continent, Africa, with only 6% jabbed, is the least affected by COVID-19. Yet the Biden regime is blaming the unvaccinated and rushing to jab the one age group in which all-cause mortality is less than baseline (ages 0–14).
Does “the science” tell us to assume that things would have been even worse without the jabs?
The question of vaccine-caused damage and mortality is so radioactive that a press conference sponsored by U.S Senator Ron Johnson, featuring testimony by vaccine-injured people or their parents (tinyurl.com/9kx7v974) is suppressed. An edited version of a panel discussion with medical experts and patients held by Sen. Johnson is available on YouTube (tinyurl.com/26nf9m7y).
If this testimony were on network television, vaccination centers would be still emptier, even if Dr. Fauci followed with reassurances about rarity and coincidences. To the “benefits greatly outweigh the risks,” most people would reply that a one-in-a-million risk of that person’s horrible outcome is not worth it.
Civil Rights Emergency
The long tradition of liberty in Western countries is the target of extremist government measures that treat the unvaccinated as Untermenschen. Austria has become a dictatorship, stated Herbert Kickl of the “far-Right” Freedom party, which has also advocated “scientifically unproven” early treatment with drugs such as ivermectin. Austria entered its fourth national lockdown on Nov 22, which is supposed to be lifted for fully vaccinated people by Dec 12. (“Fully vaccinated” status expires in 7 months.) In February, vaccination will be mandatory for all, with certain medical exceptions. Austria, said to be the least vaccinated country in Western Europe, will be the first to implement a universal mandate. Persuasion has not worked in 34%, noted Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg, so now there will be fines, and prison for those who cannot or will not pay (https://tinyurl.com/wenyxwcr).
Throughout the world, millions were in the streets on Nov 20, protesting vaccine passports and COVID-19 vaccine mandates (tinyurl.com/949ezf89). U.S. mainstream media was only concerned about protests of the Rittenhouse not-guilty verdict.
In some places in India, persons with leprosy—formerly a lifelong, incurable disease—still cannot get a driver’s license or ride on trains. Otherwise, people have not, until now, been treated as pariahs because of health status, certainly not because they might contract a disease that would be contagious for 2 weeks. Recall the uproar about briefly quarantining people who had been exposed to Ebola. AIDS-infected victims were never subjected to government edicts barring them from private businesses or from employment or from receiving their pensions or needed goods and services. Today, there is outrage about the social discrimination that did occur (tinyurl.com/yufebenv).
Washington Post columnist and former Planned Parenthood head Leana Wen, M.D., said: “We need to start looking at the choice to remain unvaccinated the same as we look at driving while intoxicated.” Noam Chomsky said the unvaccinated should be isolated, and trouble getting food was “their problem” (ibid.).
The healthcare sector has lost nearly half a million workers since February 2020. Some 18% quit, and 12% were laid off. Vaccine mandates are likely to result in the loss of many more.
An article in The Atlantic blames poor pay and working conditions and the stress of dealing with COVID-19. “Most” patients, it claims, are unvaccinated and may be “belligerent and vocal.” Some might have “yelled for hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin, neither of which has any proven benefit for COVID-19.”
It is now much harder to get good medical care for anything, author Ed Jong notes. Workers suffer “moral distress” from being unable to do what they know is right (tinyurl.com/f8bkss78).
As stated by Jörg Hacker, former president of the Robert Koch Institut (2008–2010), “Almost all have participated or remained silent. For the violation of humanistic principles, for the breach of dignity and bodily integrity, there has never been a justification, even when the majority tolerates or actually demands it” [ed. translation] (tinyurl.com/sm6w5ude). As the current RKI head says there is an emergency, RKI might support a mandate.
During World War II, 120,000 Japanese men, women, children were hauled off without trial and imprisoned for 3 years or more in a hellish camp, on the basis of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066. This was later legalized by Congress and upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in Korematsu v. U.S. The majority of the victims were U.S. citizens, some World War I veterans. Not one was ever found guilty of spying or sabotage for Tokyo, although 10 Caucasians were. Meanwhile, 156,000 persons of Japanese descent remained free in Hawaii, where only 4,000 leaders were imprisoned. The Supreme Court precedent stands, and not one single official was ever held accountable for up-ending the lives of innocent individuals (Richard Maybury’s Early Warning Report, December 2021).
‘A War Is Not Lost Until You Consider It Lost’
The attack on Pearl Harbor was based on the concept of Kantai Kessen, or the Decisive Battle Doctrine, which holds that a nation-state may hope to prevail over a much more powerful adversary only by bringing the opponent to battle on a field of the weaker nation’s choosing. The Pearl Harbor sneak attack was a brilliant tactical success for Japan, but a strategic catastrophe in the long run. Admiral Yamamoto issued the prophetic warning: “I fear that all we have done is awaken a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve.” Americans were furious, but did not seek the decisive battle the Japanese hoped for. Instead, they waited, building up their strength. The Imperial Japanese Navy lost the war the second the Americans refused to follow the script the Japanese had laid out for them (tinyurl.com/2p8u53xr).
Over the past year or two, all elements of the “Woke” contingent—media, universities, nongovernmental organizations, tech companies, radicals, the Democrat Party, “never-Trumper” Republicans, the Deep State, upper echelons of big business—have come together like a Japanese carrier group. The shock-and-awe campaign against the Deplorables might appear to be a smashing success. But: “it is all well and good to sink all the ships in Pearl Harbor, but what do you do if the enemy then refuses to concede defeat? Well, you lose, that’s what, provided your enemy can hold onto his patience, his resolve, and his nerve long enough” (https://tinyurl.com/2p9a4yey).
In America’s current class war, the imbalance between the credentialed classes with “email jobs” and the forgotten people who keep the lights on and the garbage from piling up, or drive trucks or fly planes, is even greater than that between America and Japan in World War II. But how to direct this strength?

COVID Vaccination Red Flags
Neurologic Injury. In the 2.5 months after obtaining an EUA, Pfizer received reports of 158,893 adverse events, with 25,957 being “nervous system disorders.” Attorney Adam Siri testified that 11 physicians had serious neurologic effects dismissed by the medical system as psychogenic (https://tinyurl.com/393rb8zj).
PULS Cardiac Test. Protein biomarkers that predict the 5-year risk of acute coronary syndrome increase dramatically after mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. Researchers conclude that inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle may account for increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination (Circulation, Nov 8, 2021, https://tinyurl.com/2p8nfrby).
Deadly Lots. An investigation of VAERS reports showed that 100% of COVID-19 vaccine deaths with identified lot numbers were associated with just 5% of batches produced. These lot numbers were disproportionately sent to Republican-controlled states, researchers said (tinyurl.com/yc8aakfj).
Unpublishable Observations. An informal review of charts in a cardiology practice showed that 87 patients with previously stable conditions who received vaccine at a retail pharmacy experienced various cardiac complications including sudden death; all had elevated troponins. Of 32 more privileged patients who received vaccine at an elite academic center, none had worsening of cardiac status and no troponin elevation. Generally, vaccination site is not used as a primary variable in VAERS. Clearly, not all lots or vaccination sites are equal.
UK Death Rates. According to the Office of National Statistics (ONS), all-cause mortality in vaccinated people age 10–59 has been double that in unvaccinated people (about 2.9 vs. 1.4/100,000) since April 2021 (tinyurl.com/ytrnn5dk).
Heart Disease in Athletes. Since December 2020, 183 professional athletes, coaches, and college and youth athletes have abruptly collapsed, and 108 have died, mainly of cardiac problems. There were 21 cases of sudden unexpected death or sudden cardiac deaths in FIFA athletes, five times the pre-vaccination annual average of 4.2. Most have to have the COVID jab to be allowed to play (https://tinyurl.com/2p987fub).
Tumors. There are no studies of carcinogenicity of COVID vaccines. VigiAccess, a WHO database, reports 3,709 cases of “neoplasms”; the UK’s Yellow Card system, 731 neoplasms; and VAERS, hundreds of brain, breast, oral, skin, and colon cancers that appeared suddenly (tinyurl.com/2p9c87nx).

ACTION OF THE MONTH
If you offer early treatment for COVID-19 by protocol similar to those at c19protocols.com, please add your name to a list we are compiling to help patients at bit.ly/covidearlytx.
Can Patients Drop out of Medicare?
Only patients who pay Premium-Part A can drop Part A. To drop out of Part B, patients need to send Social Security a signed written request. Anyone who wants to get back in will have to wait until the next General Enrollment Period (Jan 1–Mar 31), and coverage won’t start until July. Also, a monthly late enrollment penalty based on the time without coverage will be charged as long as the person has Part B (tinyurl.com/2ke9t4dj).
In 2022, Part B monthly premiums will increase by 14.5%, from $148.50 to $170.10, more if one’s modified adjusted gross income was $88,000 or more (for single individual) 2 years ago.
Patients are asking about dropping out of Part B because they feel it is not worth it. Also, they cannot get non-Medicare-approved services except from an opted-out physician, though most are not yet aware of this.
OK Bill Would Allow Suits for Vaccine Damage
Oklahoma Senate Bill 1106 would allow employees to sue their employers for up to $1 million over medical issues connected to treatments required as a condition for employment. Commenters noted that this was not nearly enough to replace lifetime income and benefits but would send a message. They asked who would decide whether a COVID-19 shot was responsible. A few said that those who agreed to take the shot shared in the responsibility (https://tinyurl.com/3u6yw2n3).
OSHA Mandate Blocked in Fifth Circuit
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit has reaffirmed its stay on enforcement of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) emergency temporary standard (ETS) requiring all businesses with 100 or more employees to require COVID-19 vaccination or weekly testing. It slammed this rule as “staggeringly overbroad” and “fatally flawed,” and said it “grossly exceeds OSHA’s statutory authority” (tinyurl.com/yckwx9r4).
The vaccine mandate “threatens to substantially burden the liberty interests of reluctant individual recipients,” wrote Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt. “Likewise, the companies seeking a stay in this case will also be irreparably harmed in the absence of a stay, whether by the business and financial effects of a lost or suspended employee, compliance and monitoring,… or stiff financial penalties on companies that refuse to punish or test unwilling employees” (https://tinyurl.com/ss9jrxy9).
The mandate does not allow consideration of natural immunity. Tests must be performed by a laboratory or proctored. Extensive record-keeping is required. Since OSHA has only 1,850 inspectors, enforcement would have to rely on snitches.
“While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in the litigation,” according to its website (https://www.osha.gov/coronavirus/ets2).
Biden press secretary Jen Psaki, along with the AMA, told businesses to implement the mandate anyway. The Administration is confident that it has the authority to impose the rule and is still working under the guise that businesses will meet the Jan 4 deadline, Psaki said (https://tinyurl.com/yanu8a2u).
Tip of the Month: The DEA fully accepts a home address as the principal place of business of a physician. But guess what? That subjects his home to unexpected inspections at any time, based merely on an administrative subpoena rather than a real warrant signed by a judge. The Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures of one’s home are waived by anyone who uses a home address on his DEA registration. Also, “an individual practitioner or mid-level practitioner whose DEA-registered location is a home must comply with the established recordkeeping requirements (see 21 CFR 1304 and 1305) and security requirements,” the DEA recently announced.
CMS Mandate Challenged
The CMS mandate requiring COVID-19 vaccination of everyone who works in a healthcare facility that receives federal funding has been challenged by at least three lawsuits.
A case brought by the attorneys general of Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, and West Virginia alleges that the mandate violates the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution by seeking “to commandeer state-employee surveyors to become enforcers of CMS’s unlawful attempt to federalize national vaccine policy and override the States’ police power on matters of health and safety” (tinyurl.com/mrxbjmdx).
A case brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton states that “amid a harrowing worker shortage, the Biden Administration has prioritized this unlawful vaccine mandate over the healthcare of all Americans” (tinyurl.com/2p8dax4e).
The Missouri suit, joined by Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming, states that CMS violated the Administrative Procedure Act and ignores circumstances that “foreshadow an impending disaster in the healthcare industry” (tinyurl.com/yckv5mrm).
Natural Immunity. Aaron Kheriaty, M.D., sued the Univ. of California over COVID-19 vaccine mandates in recovered patients. The CDC, stated attorney Adam Siri, cannot cite a single instance in which a recovered patient has transmitted COVID, though vaccinated persons have (tinyurl.com/5eayuset). Dr. Keriaty was placed on investigatory leave (tinyurl.com/9jt5hsnu).
FOIA Complaint. In Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency v. FDA, PHMPT seeks to obtain data relied upon by FDA to license the Pfizer Vaccine (tinyurl.com/48jacpdd). FDA has asked the judge to give it until 2076 to release the 329,000+ pages of documents, at the rate of 500 pages/month. FDA purportedly reviewed them all in 108 days (tinyurl.com/tvb2jv54).
Hospitals’ Treatment Bans. Lawsuits demanding that hospitals allow ivermectin use in dying patients have mixed results. DuPage County Circuit Judge Paul Fullerton ordered a hospital to step aside and allow Alan Bain, D.O., to administer the drug; the patient is recovering (tinyurl.com/2p93xm2b). Chief Justice Bonnie Sudderth of the Texas Second Court of Appeals in Fort Worth reversed a trial court decision, and Texas Health Hughely is blocking administration of the drug (tinyurl.com/4yna667c). Mary Talley Bowden, M.D., who recommended it, had her privileges suspended by Houston Methodist (tinyurl.com/2p97bhnu).
Support the Jab—or Else. After a hospital complained to the licensure board about a doctor’s writing medical exemptions for its employees, the board suspended his license for 30 days, alleging deceit, fraud, or unprofessional conduct. It is open season on doctors who fail to bow down to the vaccine idol.
Doctors who reject the COVID-19 jab for themselves, for whatever reason, often have their employment terminated, and this may not be the end of the matter. The hospital or university may lure the doctor into resigning, while withholding the fact that a peer review investigation is underway. If the doctor has an automatic termination-of-medical-staff-privileges provision in his contract, the hospital can report to the National Practitioner Data Bank that he has “resigned while under or to avoid investigation,” with no right to a peer review hearing or appeal. AAPS has saved many careers by advising doctors not to resign in these situations.

Notification. I received a notice in the monthly electronic newsletter from the Maine licensure board citing the Federation of State Medical Board’s statement about “COVID-19 vaccine misinformation” (tinyurl.com/5ru7b968) and the joint supporting statement from the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics (tinyurl.com/4kj53fek). The Maine Board “also applies this standard to all misinformation regarding Covid-19, including non-verbal treatments and preventative measures. Physicians…who spread Covid-19 misinformation, or practice based on such misinformation, erode public trust in the medical profession and may endanger patients.” Treatments and recommendations that “fall below the standard of care as established by medical experts,” or issuing a vaccine exemption without an “appropriate” examination and without finding a “legitimate medical reason…within the standard of care” may place a doctor’s license at risk.

Non-vaccine Is Failing. Joe Biden’s own senior health officials such as CDC Director Walensky have been telling us since August that the COVID-19 shot does not prevent infection or transmission of the virus. That’s why the CDC changed its official definition of the term “vaccine” to exclude the term “immunity.” They say you must take the shot because it may prevent serious illness, but we know there are plenty of other things that may prevent serious illness from the virus—such as ivermectin. On Nov 4, Nature reported a study of 800,000 veterans 6 months after the shot. Between March and November, the effectiveness of the Moderna shot fell from 85% to 58%; Pfizer, from 85% to 45%; and J&J, from 86% to 15%. Factoring in natural immunity, one could argue that the vaccines are nearly worthless. Resistance to the mandate is growing, with thousands preferring to be fired rather than taking the shot. With the country on the edge of an economic abyss, Biden is doubling down. How far is he willing to go to enforce this tyranny?

A Worst Disaster than Imagined. This devastating analysis of VAERS (tinyurl.com/2drzwbr5) shows that the magnitude of adverse events to COVID-19 “vaccines” is stunning. Myocarditis is acknowledged, but more than 200 symptoms occur at an even higher rate relative to other vaccines. Female reproductive issues top the list. This experiment may have killed more than 150,000 Americans and permanently disabled many more.

Marxism Comes to America. When I was growing up under Soviet-style communism in Romania, we experienced tyranny and deprivation. Now, in the U.S., there are looming shortages, falsified data, bribes for a COVID diagnosis, indefinite detention of citizens without charges, denial of life-saving drugs not on the NIH protocol, strip-searches even without an arrest, and refusal of care to noncompliant persons. Doctors’ visits have been transformed into virtual pretend-care. American Marxists, who are both “D’s” and “R’s,” can easily cut access to necessities and your bank account. The old communists had to hire an army of informers and wiretappers to get a fraction of the information that now resides with our techie controllers. They had Pravda. America has an alphabet soup of fake media to spread propaganda. With technology, Marxism is much worse.

Medicare Ad Blitz. Celebrities such as Joe Namath and William Shatner are on TV urging seniors to get benefits like dental care, eyeglasses, and free rides to the clinic when they sign up for Medicare Advantage plans—which are restricted-access networks. Noncompliant physicians are terminated when they do not follow company rules specifying access to them and the content and value of the medical care they provide.
