PolitiFact Malarky on Coronavirus Shots Adam Dick http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/peace-and-prosperity/2022/august/04/politifact-malarky-on-coronavirus-shots/

PolitiFact claims to be a fact-checking organization that exposes false information. But, in practice, PolitiFact can turn out to instead be the promoter of false information.

For example, consider this paragraph from a PolitiFact article from last week by Madison Czopek:
Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine, marketed as Comirnaty, in August 2021 became the first COVID-19 vaccine to achieve full approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Millions of people have received the two-dose Pfizer vaccine, which is a safe and effective way to prevent COVID-19.
This short, two-sentence paragraph from the self-proclaimed fact-checking organization is filled with falsehoods.

First, the coronavirus shots from Pfizer-BioNtech are not a “vaccine” under the normal meaning of the term. As Dr. Joseph Mercola explained early in 2021, soon after the rollout of the shots, the shots from both Pfizer-BioNtech and Moderna are better understood as “gene therapy.” Further, Mercola addressed in an article on the matter that even at that early stage supposed fact checkers were trying to suppress the different nature of these new shots.

Maybe it is OK to let this first problem slide. Even many people who challenge the shots’ worthiness often just call them “vaccines.” You might expect more from someplace saying it is doing fact checking, but it is within the normal range of how people talk about the coronavirus shots.

The next two problems, though, are inexcusable.

Second, contrary to what the PolitiFact article suggests, there has been no widespread use of Pfizer’s Comirnaty shot. What millions of people have received is a different shot — Pfizer-BioNtech’s emergency use authorization coronavirus shot. Megan Redshaw explains the situation regarding Comirnaty in a July 11 article at the Children’s Health Defense website:
According to Pfizer’s press release, Comirnaty was previously made available to the 12 to 15 age group in the U.S. under EUA [(Emergency Use Authorization)] and 9 million U.S. adolescents in this age group have completed a primary series.

'The vaccine, sold under the brand name Comirnaty for adults, has been available under an emergency use authorization since May 2021 for the 12-15 age group,” Reuters reported. “It will now be sold under the same brand name for adolescents as well.'

Yet, Pfizer’s information hotline says it has no specific information on when Comirnaty will be available.

The FDA said Friday the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine 'has been, and will continue to be, authorized for emergency use in this age group since May 2021.'

The CDC’s website states that Comirnaty is 'not orderable.'

A branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services overseeing the Strategic National Stockpile indicated Comirnaty was not available because Pfizer did not have time to change the labels.

According to FDA documents, Comirnaty is not available in the U.S. and nobody has received a fully approved and licensed COVID-19 vaccine.
Third, the paragraph from the Politifact article repeats the favorite mantra of politician and big money media pushing the coronavirus shots: The shots are “safe and effective.” Regarding the shots supposed safety, I dealt with that matter in a previous article challenging PolitiFact’s pharmaceutical propaganda. You can read here my February 13 article “PolitiFact’s Crummy Fact-checking on Coronavirus Shots Safety.” As far as effectiveness, is PolitiFact joking? Even Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle P. Walensky finally admitted back in August of 2021 what had become common knowledge among observers of the coronavirus shots’ effects: The shots do not prevent transmission of coronavirus. Wake up, PolitiFact. It is a year later and you are still touting the shots as an “effective way to prevent COVID-19.” Oh boy. And across America and the world we have seen the continued failure of the shots to prevent coronavirus-related sickness and death for shot recipients as well. For a sample of the evidence indicating the shots’ are ineffective and even counterproductive in preventing sickness and death read here Daniel Horowitz’s analysis of data from Great Britain in a March 22 The Blaze article.

The coronavirus shots have proven to be a big failure in regard to their hyped health promotion purposes. Nonetheless — facts, schmacts — PolitiFact continues on in its role as the shots’ dogged promoter.]]>

New Poll Seeks Answers about Health Problem Diagnoses after ‘Safe’ Coronavirus Shots Adam Dick http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/peace-and-prosperity/2022/july/31/new-poll-seeks-answers-about-health-problem-diagnoses-after-safe-coronavirus-shots/

Are many people who took experimental coronavirus “vaccine” shots being diagnosed with serious medical conditions? It is an important question to ask when evaluating the much repeated by politicians and the big money media claim that the shots are safe.

Children’s Health Defense sought answers directly from the shot takers by commissioning a poll from John Zogby Strategies that was conducted from July 22 through July 24.

Children’s Health Defense lays out some of the results in a Thursday article at its website. The article starts with the following:
More than two years after Operation Warp Speed began,  Children’s Health Defense (CHD) commissioned John Zogby Strategies to conduct two surveys about attitudes and the overall health of American adults.

The first survey of 1,038 adults found that 67% of respondents received one or more COVID-19 vaccines, while 33% are unvaccinated. Furthermore, among those vaccinated, 6% received one dose, 28% received two doses, 21% received three doses, and 12% took four or more.

Of those receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, 15% say they’ve been diagnosed by a medical practitioner with a new condition within a matter of weeks to several months after taking the vaccine.

A follow-up question provided a list of medical conditions and asked diagnosed respondents to “select all that apply.” Among those who were medically diagnosed with a new condition within a matter of weeks to several months after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, the top five cited conditions were:
Notably, the polled individuals do not include people under the age of 18. Children, now down to the age of six months old, are the latest target for the campaign to pressure everyone to receive the shots. Also, of course, people who have died after receiving the shots cannot take part in polls.]]>

No Mask Mandate Return in Los Angeles County, for Now Adam Dick http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/peace-and-prosperity/2022/july/29/no-mask-mandate-return-in-los-angeles-county-for-now/

On July 9, I wrote about how it looked likely that a broad mask mandate would be automatically reimposed by the Los Angeles County government in California based on “cases” of coronavirus rising above and then staying at a level tagged by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Here is an update with some good and bad news.

Frist, the good news: On Thursday, Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer declared the mask mandate is not being reimposed.

Now for the bad news: the mask mandate was not rejected by the county government because the county government finally admitted masks provide no net protection against coronavirus and cause health problems or decided to finally stand up for liberty and in opposition to authoritarian mandates. Instead, as explained by Ferrer, the mask mandate did not come back because, just before it was about to return, case numbers dropped back down below the threshold.

So, while the mask mandate remains absent for now, it can come back via the county’s autopilot mask policy.]]>

The Biden Administration’s Recession Deception Adam Dick http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/peace-and-prosperity/2022/july/28/the-biden-administration-s-recession-deception/
One of the US government’s latest major propagandistic language contortions is the Joe Biden administration’s attempt to deny America is in a recession by saying a recession is something more than the two consecutive quarters of decline in gross domestic product (GDP) that has been routinely used to define a recession. Seeing that America is just about certain to be already in a recession under the long-used definition, Biden administration officials have been out in front of every camera they can find declaring, “no, it takes much more to have a recession.”

A short interview of economist and investor Peter Schiff by host Laura Ingraham at Fox News this week refutes the Biden administration’s recession deception. As Ingraham points out early in the interview, the last ten times GDP was negative for two successive quarters it was a recession. Then, Schiff notes that throughout his decades-long career in investing “recession has been described by two quarters of negative GDP growth.” Continuing, Schiff states, “we’ve got that, in fact the third quarter looks like it’s going to be an even bigger contraction than the first two.” Further, even by the Biden administration’s asserted new definition, Schiff argues a recession has arrived in America:
[United States Treasury Secretary Janet] Yellen said that a recession is not two consecutive drops in GDP, it’s a broad-based economic slowdown. Well, that’s exactly what we’ve got. The auto industry is in recession. The housing industry is in recession. Retail is in recession. Advertising is in recession. So many unrelated segments of the economy are in recession. How you can’t say this is a broad-based slowdown, doesn’t make any sense.
Not only that, Schiff further predicts in the interview that the economic situation will become “a lot worse in the third quarter and then probably the fourth quarter as well.”

PolitiFact Malarky on Coronavirus Shots Adam Dick http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/neocon-watch/2022/august/04/politifact-malarky-on-coronavirus-shots/

PolitiFact claims to be a fact-checking organization that exposes false information. But, in practice, PolitiFact can turn out to instead be the promoter of false information.

For example, consider this paragraph from a PolitiFact article from last week by Madison Czopek:
Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine, marketed as Comirnaty, in August 2021 became the first COVID-19 vaccine to achieve full approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Millions of people have received the two-dose Pfizer vaccine, which is a safe and effective way to prevent COVID-19.
This short, two-sentence paragraph from the self-proclaimed fact-checking organization is filled with falsehoods.

First, the coronavirus shots from Pfizer-BioNtech are not a “vaccine” under the normal meaning of the term. As Dr. Joseph Mercola explained early in 2021, soon after the rollout of the shots, the shots from both Pfizer-BioNtech and Moderna are better understood as “gene therapy.” Further, Mercola addressed in an article on the matter that even at that early stage supposed fact checkers were trying to suppress the different nature of these new shots.

Maybe it is OK to let this first problem slide. Even many people who challenge the shots’ worthiness often just call them “vaccines.” You might expect more from someplace saying it is doing fact checking, but it is within the normal range of how people talk about the coronavirus shots.

The next two problems, though, are inexcusable.

Second, contrary to what the PolitiFact article suggests, there has been no widespread use of Pfizer’s Comirnaty shot. What millions of people have received is a different shot — Pfizer-BioNtech’s emergency use authorization coronavirus shot. Megan Redshaw explains the situation regarding Comirnaty in a July 11 article at the Children’s Health Defense website:
According to Pfizer’s press release, Comirnaty was previously made available to the 12 to 15 age group in the U.S. under EUA [(Emergency Use Authorization)] and 9 million U.S. adolescents in this age group have completed a primary series.

'The vaccine, sold under the brand name Comirnaty for adults, has been available under an emergency use authorization since May 2021 for the 12-15 age group,” Reuters reported. “It will now be sold under the same brand name for adolescents as well.'

Yet, Pfizer’s information hotline says it has no specific information on when Comirnaty will be available.

The FDA said Friday the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine 'has been, and will continue to be, authorized for emergency use in this age group since May 2021.'

The CDC’s website states that Comirnaty is 'not orderable.'

A branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services overseeing the Strategic National Stockpile indicated Comirnaty was not available because Pfizer did not have time to change the labels.

According to FDA documents, Comirnaty is not available in the U.S. and nobody has received a fully approved and licensed COVID-19 vaccine.
Third, the paragraph from the Politifact article repeats the favorite mantra of politician and big money media pushing the coronavirus shots: The shots are “safe and effective.” Regarding the shots supposed safety, I dealt with that matter in a previous article challenging PolitiFact’s pharmaceutical propaganda. You can read here my February 13 article “PolitiFact’s Crummy Fact-checking on Coronavirus Shots Safety.” As far as effectiveness, is PolitiFact joking? Even Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle P. Walensky finally admitted back in August of 2021 what had become common knowledge among observers of the coronavirus shots’ effects: The shots do not prevent transmission of coronavirus. Wake up, PolitiFact. It is a year later and you are still touting the shots as an “effective way to prevent COVID-19.” Oh boy. And across America and the world we have seen the continued failure of the shots to prevent coronavirus-related sickness and death for shot recipients as well. For a sample of the evidence indicating the shots’ are ineffective and even counterproductive in preventing sickness and death read here Daniel Horowitz’s analysis of data from Great Britain in a March 22 The Blaze article.

The coronavirus shots have proven to be a big failure in regard to their hyped health promotion purposes. Nonetheless — facts, schmacts — PolitiFact continues on in its role as the shots’ dogged promoter.]]>

New Poll Seeks Answers about Health Problem Diagnoses after ‘Safe’ Coronavirus Shots Adam Dick http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/neocon-watch/2022/july/31/new-poll-seeks-answers-about-health-problem-diagnoses-after-safe-coronavirus-shots/

Are many people who took experimental coronavirus “vaccine” shots being diagnosed with serious medical conditions? It is an important question to ask when evaluating the much repeated by politicians and the big money media claim that the shots are safe.

Children’s Health Defense sought answers directly from the shot takers by commissioning a poll from John Zogby Strategies that was conducted from July 22 through July 24.

Children’s Health Defense lays out some of the results in a Thursday article at its website. The article starts with the following:
More than two years after Operation Warp Speed began,  Children’s Health Defense (CHD) commissioned John Zogby Strategies to conduct two surveys about attitudes and the overall health of American adults.

The first survey of 1,038 adults found that 67% of respondents received one or more COVID-19 vaccines, while 33% are unvaccinated. Furthermore, among those vaccinated, 6% received one dose, 28% received two doses, 21% received three doses, and 12% took four or more.

Of those receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, 15% say they’ve been diagnosed by a medical practitioner with a new condition within a matter of weeks to several months after taking the vaccine.

A follow-up question provided a list of medical conditions and asked diagnosed respondents to “select all that apply.” Among those who were medically diagnosed with a new condition within a matter of weeks to several months after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, the top five cited conditions were:
Notably, the polled individuals do not include people under the age of 18. Children, now down to the age of six months old, are the latest target for the campaign to pressure everyone to receive the shots. Also, of course, people who have died after receiving the shots cannot take part in polls.]]>

No Mask Mandate Return in Los Angeles County, for Now Adam Dick http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/neocon-watch/2022/july/29/no-mask-mandate-return-in-los-angeles-county-for-now/

On July 9, I wrote about how it looked likely that a broad mask mandate would be automatically reimposed by the Los Angeles County government in California based on “cases” of coronavirus rising above and then staying at a level tagged by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Here is an update with some good and bad news.

Frist, the good news: On Thursday, Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer declared the mask mandate is not being reimposed.

Now for the bad news: the mask mandate was not rejected by the county government because the county government finally admitted masks provide no net protection against coronavirus and cause health problems or decided to finally stand up for liberty and in opposition to authoritarian mandates. Instead, as explained by Ferrer, the mask mandate did not come back because, just before it was about to return, case numbers dropped back down below the threshold.

So, while the mask mandate remains absent for now, it can come back via the county’s autopilot mask policy.]]>

The Biden Administration’s Recession Deception Adam Dick http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/neocon-watch/2022/july/28/the-biden-administration-s-recession-deception/
One of the US government’s latest major propagandistic language contortions is the Joe Biden administration’s attempt to deny America is in a recession by saying a recession is something more than the two consecutive quarters of decline in gross domestic product (GDP) that has been routinely used to define a recession. Seeing that America is just about certain to be already in a recession under the long-used definition, Biden administration officials have been out in front of every camera they can find declaring, “no, it takes much more to have a recession.”

A short interview of economist and investor Peter Schiff by host Laura Ingraham at Fox News this week refutes the Biden administration’s recession deception. As Ingraham points out early in the interview, the last ten times GDP was negative for two successive quarters it was a recession. Then, Schiff notes that throughout his decades-long career in investing “recession has been described by two quarters of negative GDP growth.” Continuing, Schiff states, “we’ve got that, in fact the third quarter looks like it’s going to be an even bigger contraction than the first two.” Further, even by the Biden administration’s asserted new definition, Schiff argues a recession has arrived in America:
[United States Treasury Secretary Janet] Yellen said that a recession is not two consecutive drops in GDP, it’s a broad-based economic slowdown. Well, that’s exactly what we’ve got. The auto industry is in recession. The housing industry is in recession. Retail is in recession. Advertising is in recession. So many unrelated segments of the economy are in recession. How you can’t say this is a broad-based slowdown, doesn’t make any sense.
Not only that, Schiff further predicts in the interview that the economic situation will become “a lot worse in the third quarter and then probably the fourth quarter as well.”
