    The View mocked the Defeat the Mandates march that took place on the National Mall in Washington on Sunday, saying its speakers and premise were misinformed. People from across the country gathered at the Washington Monument and walked to the Lincoln Memorial to participate in the march, which was part of an international demonstration against COVID-19-related restrictions. Among those who spoke was Children’s Health Defense founder Robert F. Kennedy Jr. The show's co-hosts criticized Kennedy for comparing present-day mandates to the Nazi oppression of Jews and claiming that mandates are stripping people of their rights. “Even in Hitler's Germany, you could cross the Alps into Switzerland,” Kennedy said. “You could hide in an attic like Anne Frank did. I visited in 1962 — East Germany — with my father and met people who had climbed the wall and escaped. So it was possible. Many people died doing it, but it was possible. Today, the mechanisms are being put in place that will make it so none of us can run, none of us...

    The "Defeat the Mandates" rally on Sunday in Washington D.C. was not exactly the blockbuster event, size-wise, organizers had hoped to turn out. The event's planners had predicted 20,000 people, but more reasonable estimates suggested it was fewer than half that who actually showed. But despite the paltry turnout, the event was deeply troubling to experts who monitor the far-right. The tone and tenor of the occasion were so hyperbolic and self-aggrandizing, creating exactly the sort of conditions that will further radicalize ordinary Republicans and stoke more right-wing violence. Disgustingly, one of the main speakers was Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the son of the Democratic scion who was assassinated in 1968. Kennedy has spent the past few years becoming an increasingly unhinged anti-vaccine activist — but his presence on Sunday was even more alarming considering the role that the Kennedy family plays in the imaginations of the QAnon cult. Many QAnoners believe that JFK and JFK Jr. — Kennedy's deceased uncle and first cousin, respectively — are still alive and secretly supporting Donald Trump. Simply by showing up, Kennedy validated...
    An anti-vaxxer has died of Covid-19 after tearing off his oxygen mask and insisting he did not have the disease, while being treated at a hospital in Italy. The man, named as Luigi Cossellu by local media and who was admitted on January 16, reportedly denied the existence of Covid-19 and had refused to get the vaccine. Doctors immediately recognised the severity of the 28-year-old's condition upon his arrival at the Santa Maria Goretti Hospital in Latina, found south of Rome.  The man, named as Luigi Cossellu (pictured) by local media and who was admitted on January 16, reportedly denied the existence of Covid-19 and had refused to get the vaccine They diagnosed him with acute respiratory failure due to coronavirus, and transferred him to an intensive care ward on his second day at the facility.  However, Cossellu refused treatment, and tore off his oxygen mask.

    President Joe Biden failed on coronavirus preparedness, testing availability, and implementing mandates, the New York Times admitted Sunday. While the establishment media often hyped Biden’s ability to shut down the virus and return the nation to normalcy, the Times wrote Biden has failed to accomplish his 2020 promise to do so. “Since he was inaugurated on Jan. 20 last year, 438,110 people have died from the virus, a number that is still increasing by more than 10,000 people every week,” the Times revealed. On the issue of preparedness, the Times slammed Biden for not anticipating future variants and the need to have the nation ready to combat the virus. Biden “continued to focus almost single-mindedly on vaccinations even after it became clear that the shots could not always prevent the spread of disease.” “The White House bet the pandemic would follow a straight line, and was unprepared for the sharp turns it took,” the Times piece continued. “The administration did not anticipate the nature and severity of variants, even after clear warning signals from the rest of the world.” The article...
    Eric Clapton has claimed that anyone who has taken the Covid vaccine is a victim of 'mass formation hypnosis'. The singer, 76, previously claimed he suffered alarming side effects after his AstraZeneca jabs and released ant-lockdown single Stand And Deliver with Van Morrison in 2020. In a new interview for The Real Music Observer YouTube channel, Eric has claimed that that subliminal messaging hidden in advertising led people to get the jab.  Different take: Eric Clapton has claimed that anyone who has taken the Covid vaccine is a victim of 'mass formation hypnosis' He said: 'Whatever the memo was, it hadn't reached me. Then I started to realise there was really a memo, and a guy, Mattias Desmet [professor of clinical psychology at Ghent University in Belgium], talked about it. 'And it's great. The theory of mass formation hypnosis. And I could see it then. Once I kind of started to look for it, I saw it everywhere.

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr., nephew of former President John F. Kennedy and son of former Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, is facing backlash for telling a crowd of anti vaccine mandate protesters that life was like 'Hitler's Germany.'  Kennedy and Informed Consent Action Network founder Del Bigtree were among big names who addressed the rally Sunday morning. Around 20,000 people were expected to attend the demonstration, with reports of the crowd ranging from several thousand to the Daily Caller's 30,000. 'Americans want democracy back, and this rally is a demand by Americans to get their democracy back,' Kennedy said of the rally, according to WUSA9.     Kennedy compared the plight of the vaccine-adverse to that of Anne Frank on Sunday, saying that 'even in Hitler's Germany, you could hide in the attic like Anne Frank did.' RFK Jr. was shellacked on social media for his take, including one tweet from the Auschwitz Memorial. Robert F.

    Thousands of anti-vaccine mandate protesters marched in Washington D.C. on Sunday in an event dubbed "Defeat the Mandates," which featured several prominent speakers including Dr. Robert Malone. Protesters gathered at the Washington Monument and marched to the Lincoln Memorial steps at around 11:30 am. Many demonstrators held signs and banners promoting freedom of choice when it comes to the vaccines, as well as criticizing health officials and the Biden administration.

    Brian Bahr/Getty Images NBA legend John Stockton is making some utterly bizarre claims about the Covid-19 vaccines. In an interview with Spokane’s Spokesman-Review, the basketball Hall of Famer asserted without a shred of evidence that scores of athletes have died — in the middle of competition — from the vaccines. From the report: During the interview, Stockton asserted that more than 100 professional athletes have died of vaccination. He also said tens of thousands of people – perhaps millions – have died from vaccines. “I think it’s highly recorded now, there’s 150 I believe now, it’s over 100 professional athletes dead – professional athletes – the prime of their life, dropping dead that are vaccinated, right on the pitch, right on the field, right on the court,” Stockton said in the interview. Spokesman review reporter Theo Lawson beat back that extremely wild claim with a brutal fact check. “Such claims are dubious and not backed by science, nor are they deemed credible by medical professionals, according to FactCheck.org, a project of The Annenberg Public Policy Center, and research reported by...
    It’s been a week for serving up roast piglet in Belgrade, the traditional way to mark the Serbian Orthodox Church’s New Year, and the joke doing the rounds is that the locals should be tucking into kangaroo instead. They’d expected to be watching Novak Djokovic chart a course to an historic 21st Grand Slam at the Australian Open, by far his favourite tournament, but instead the local hero is back in the Balkans, hunkering down this week in his Montenegro bolt-hole.  The flat screen TVs at the Novak Tennis Centre he’s built near the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers here were showing Carlos Alcaraz v Matteo Berrettini late on Friday afternoon.

    poses a much greater risk for myocarditis.Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is criticizing the COVID-19 vaccine while failing to mention key details that change the scope of his assessment. On Friday, January 22, the Kentucky senator appeared on Fox News with Laura Ingraham where he referenced the findings of a study that suggests the vaccine increases the risk of myocarditis – heart muscle inflammation – in adolescent males. However, what the lawmaker failed to also mention is that adverse effects could be far worse if an individual contracts the virus. This part of the discussion began when Ingraham mentioned a proposal in the state of California that would grant children 12 and older the right to get vaccinated for COVID-19 without parental consent. “Senator, we know they’ve wanted to put a wedge between children and their parents for a long time on a lot of issues, but this kind of takes the cake,” Ingraham said. Paul chimed in with a response that appears to have taken Ingraham's remarks out of context. “I believe it’s medical malpractice to force vaccines on...

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher argued that getting the coronavirus vaccine “just protects you. It doesn’t protect you from me, doesn’t protect me from getting it” and that “counteracts the argument that we need the vaccine to protect other people.” Maher said, “What’s so different from where we were two months ago the last time I sat here is that we now know the vaccine does not stop you from getting it. I found that out when I got it. … It doesn’t stop you from getting it and it doesn’t stop you from transmitting it. It stops you from dying when you do get it. … I’m not saying it’s not a good reason. I’m just saying that’s a huge difference and it counteracts the argument that we need the vaccine to protect other people. It just protects you. It doesn’t protect you from me, doesn’t protect me from getting it. It protects you. So, it’s just really about you now.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    Ireland has torn up its regime of vaccine passes after six months, putting an end to discrimination against the unvaccinated within the country. After around six months of the system’s operation, Ireland will once again allow the unjabbed to access services such as indoor dining in restaurants and bars. The passes were first introduced in the country in June of last year, blocking unvaccinated individuals who had not recently recovered from the Chinese Coronavirus from the likes of restaurants and cinemas, as well as from visiting nursing homes. According to a report by the Irish Independent, the passes have now been scrapped for all domestic venues and activities, with the nation’s Taoiseach (Prime Minister), Micheál Martin, saying that the measures are no longer required. “I think we’re into a new phase of the pandemic, which is the phase that the type of restrictions that we’ve imposed in the previous phases is no longer required,” the publication reported Martin as saying. “Spring is coming and I don’t know if I’ve ever looked forward to one as much as I’m looking forward to...
              by Newt Gingrich   It is hard to know which is more frightening: the Australian radicalism about COVID-19, the Austrian effort to coerce its citizens, or the attitudes of American Democrats who regard extreme sanctions as reasonable behavior toward the supposedly bad people who don’t get vaccinated or wear masks. Let’s consider each one. In Australia, the government felt so threatened by the best tennis player in the world that it intervened decisively to block him from entering the country and competing in the Australian Open. Ben Domenech in the Transom wrote, The Australian government repeatedly lied when it set the rules for Djokovic to participate in the tournament. It lied about why it kicked him out – and then it barred him for three years. “Well, perhaps it’s because Australia — in its foolishness, because they are not just descended from penal colonialists but also inherited the mindset of their captors — has gone down the road of total authoritarianism, regardless of the cost,” Domenech wrote. The net result has been what former Prime Minister Tony Abbott has called...
    The Biden administration will not allow foreign truckers from Mexico or Canada to enter the country unless they provide proof of vaccination against the coronavirus. Beginning Saturday, all non-citizens must show proof of vaccination at all ports of entry and ferry terminals when trying to enter the country. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said: Starting on January 22, 2022, the Department of Homeland Security will require that non-U.S. individuals entering the United States via land ports of entry or ferry terminals along our Northern and Southern borders be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and be prepared to show related proof of vaccination. These updated travel requirements reflect the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to protecting public health while safely facilitating the cross-border trade and travel that is critical to our economy. Before the new mandate, nonresident essential travelers have been allowed entry into the country regardless of their vaccination status. However, United States officials announced the vaccine mandate in October, hoping to incentivize more travelers to get vaccinated. U.S. President Joe Biden delivers remarks on the Covid-19 response and the vaccination program at the...
    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared with Laura Ingraham on Fox News Friday night and correctly noted that studies indicate the Covid-19 vaccine increases the risk of myocarditis – an inflammation of the heart muscle – in adolescent males. What he did not mention is that studies also indicate that contracting Covid-19 raises that risk even more. Last week, Joe Rogan did the same thing on his podcast last week. However, in that case, his guest informed him of the data indicating that there is a higher risk of developing myocarditis from Covid than the Covid vaccine. Ingraham noted a proposal in California that would allow children 12 and older to receive the vaccine without parental consent. “Senator, we know they’ve wanted to put a wedge between children and their parents for a long time on a lot of issues, but this kind of takes the cake,” she said. “I believe it’s medical malpractice to force vaccines on children, particularly adolescent males,” said Paul, reacting to a policy Ingraham did not mention. “We now have the scientific evidence that shows the...
    People wait in line to be tested for COVID-19 at Union Station on January 7, 2022 in Los Angeles, California.Mario Tama | Getty Images A 35-year-old man returned to the U.S. from Wuhan, China on Jan. 15, 2020 and fell ill with a cough and fever. He had read an alert from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about an outbreak of a novel coronavirus in Wuhan and sought treatment at an urgent care clinic in Snohomish County, Washington four days later. On Jan. 21, the CDC publicly confirmed he had the first known case of coronavirus in the U.S., although the agency would later find the virus had arrived on the West Coast as early as December after testing blood samples for antibodies. The man said he had not spent time at the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan, where a cluster of early cases were identified in December. He was admitted to isolation unit at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, Wash. for observation. After confirming the Washington state case, the CDC told the public it believed the...
    (CNN)Three large new studies from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention highlight the importance of getting a booster shot to provide the best protection against the Omicron coronavirus variant.This is the first real-life data to examine the effect of boosters against Omicron, which now accounts for more than 99% of coronavirus cases in the United States. The studies, released Friday, raise the question of whether people with just two vaccine doses should still be considered fully vaccinated."I think we have to redefine fully vaccinated as three doses," said Dr. William Schaffner, a longtime CDC vaccine adviser who was not involved with the studies. Omicron cases dip in the US overall, but the wave is far from over in many parts of the countryThe studies have an enormous scope, involving millions of cases, hundreds of thousands of visits to emergency departments and urgent care centers, and tens of thousands of hospitalizations among adults. Getting boosted was 90% effective at preventing hospitalizations during a period in December and January when Omicron was the dominant variant, according to a CDC...
    SMALLPOX plagued humans for millenia, with even Egyptian mummies found with evidence of smallpox rashes. But the world was declared free from smallpox in 1980 - so how did it get to that milestone, and who do we have to thank? 2The smallpox vaccine in 1796 was the very first vaccination against contagious diseasesCredit: Getty Images - Getty Who discovered the smallpox vaccine? Edward Jenner was the first to create, and promote, the smallpox vaccine, pulling together ideas from medicine and farm culture. Doctors knew for a while that a little bit of smallpox made people less ill and less people died. They scratched material from smallpox sores into the skin of non-infected people, or had them sniff it up their noses, in a technique called variolation. Edward Jenner used the same idea, but with cowpox, which was not deadly to humans, instead of smallpox, in his vaccine, which was first used in 1796. Cowpox made people feel a bit unwell with a few spots or blisters on their hands - but smallpox killed three in ten people who caught...
    France will introduce new vaccine passport rules for visitors to cafes and restaurants from next week, the government announced tonight. In a live TV address on Thursday evening, Prime Minister Jean Castex said the controversial new document will become compulsory for those who want to visit cafes, restaurants and a range of other businesses from next week.  Meanwhile, Austria's lower house of parliament passed a bill on Thursday making COVID-19 vaccinations compulsory for adults as of Febuary 1. The bill's passage brings Austria closer to introducing the first such sweeping coronavirus vaccine mandate in the European Union. The moves from France and Austria come amid surging Covid-19 cases on the continent, driven by the highly infectious Omicron variant. Official data shows cases rocketing in France, and on the rise in the likes of Portugal, Germany, Austria, Sweden and the Czech Republic. Cases are also high in Italy and Spain, although they appear to have levelled-off in recent days. But as cases rise on the continent, Britain's Covid figures demonstrate that an end is in sight. Having peaked in early January, the UK...
    It didn't have to be this way. Nearly two full years after the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, Americans’ lives are still being dictated by the virus. Hundreds are still dying every day, largely the unvaccinated, whose refusal to take a life-saving medicine has turned herd immunity into a faraway fantasy. But it didn’t have to be this way. More lives could have been saved. Interruptions that have come to mark daily life in the 2020s could have been mitigated. At every turn, conservatives — from President Donald Trump down to local lawmakers — undermined the seriousness of the virus, politicized public health measures, and worked tirelessly to subvert guidelines that would have kept people out of hospitals. Below is a running tally of the myriad ways in which Republicans have prolonged this seemingly unending pandemic, now in its third year and still overwhelming hospitals.

    Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, said Wednesday that he expects the Food and Drug Administration to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children under the age of five as early as next month. Fauci told Blue Star Families, a non-profit group that supports the families of U.S. service members, that he expects authorization for the shots to be extended soon. Pfizer is currently trialing its Covid vaccine in children as young as six months old, and reportedly plans to submit its application for approval soon. The Pfizer vaccine is the only jab minors in the U.S. are eligible for, with children as young as five allowed to receive the shot.  The U.S. is already a part of a small list of countries that jabs children under the age of 12. Approving the vaccines for children as young as six months old would make U.S. kids the youngest in the world to receive the shots. Dr Anthony Fauci (pictured), said Wednesday that he expects Covid vaccines to become available for children younger than age five as soon as...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci speaks about the Omicron coronavirus variant during a press briefing at the White House in Washington, December 1, 2021.Kevin Lamarque | Reuters White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday said the Food and Drug Administration could approve Pfizer and BioNTech's vaccine for children under 5-years-old in the next month. "My hope is that it's going to be within the next month or so and not much later than that, but I can't guarantee that," Fauci said during an interview with Blue Star Families, a nonprofit group that supports military families. Fauci said younger children will likely need three doses, because two shots did not induce an adequate immune response in 2- to 4-year-olds in Pfizer's clinical trials. Pfizer plans to submit data to the Food and Drug Administration in the first half of 2022 if the three-dose study proves successful, the company announced in December. Pfizer said it did not identify any safety concerns with the 3-microgram vaccine doses in children six months to 4-years-old. Adults receive two doses of 30 micrograms apiece as...
    Cops protest vaccine mandate in Chicago. This series documents stories from the Herman Cain Awards subreddit, tracking the COVID mis- and disinformation on Facebook that is leading to so many deaths. Today’s cautionary tale is a deplorable policeman. Some background: Last year was the deadliest for active-duty law enforcement in nearly a century, with COVID-19 identified as the leading cause of death for the second year in a row. Some 458 local, state, tribal and federal officers died in the line of duty in 2021, according to a preliminary report from the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum (NLEOMF). That makes an increase of 55% from the previous year's tally of 295 and the highest total number since 1930. "This year's statistics demonstrate that America's front-line law enforcement officers continue to battle the deadly effects of the Covid-19 pandemic nationwide," the report reads. "Preliminary data shows that some 301 officer fatalities have been identified as caused by Covid this year, and this number appears to increase almost daily." 1930 was what, Prohibition? So COVID surpassed the carnage caused by Al Capone...

              by Laurel Duggan   Democrats were more than twice as likely as other voters to favor harsh government restrictions being placed on unvaccinated people’s lives, ranging from fines to loss of child custody, according to a recent poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports and the Heartland Institute. Forty-eight percent of Democratic voters said the government should be able to fine or imprison those who publicly question the COVID-19 vaccine’s efficacy, while only 27% of all voters supported the proposal, according to the poll results. Fines against those who refuse to take the vaccine were viewed favorably by 55% of Democratic voters and just 19% of Republicans, and 59% of Democrats favored a policy requiring unvaccinated people to stay inside their homes at all times, except for emergencies, the poll found. Seventy-nine percent of Republicans opposed a house arrest policy for unvaccinated people. Forty-five percent of Democratic respondents favored the government forcing people into “designated facilities” until they get the vaccine — a measure opposed by 71% of all voters.

    The Daily Show returned from a long hiatus on Tuesday and among the stories host Trevor Noah decided to catch up on was the drawn-out saga of tennis champion Novak Djokovic’s ejection from the Australian Open for his refusal to get the COVID-19 vaccine. “This was supposed to have been a big week for Djokovic,” Noah said. “But like my dream of starring in the biopic of Weird Al, it wasn’t meant to be.” In reference to a survey that found 71% of Australians favored his deportation, the host said, “Damn, it says a lot about you when that many Australians think you’re too dangerous to be in your country,” joking that their health minister is a “giant poisonous spider.” “And Australia is the last country that you want to get deported from,” he continued. “Imagine stepping off a 25-hour flight and then immediately having to get on another 25-hour flight! I don’t know what Djokovic thinks is in the vaccine, but it can’t possibly be worse than breathing in farts for 50 hours straight.” But Noah didn’t actually...
    Meanwhile all we get are Proud Boys and Q freaks. In a story that takes up a sizable portion of its front page, The Washington Post brings us the travails of one unvaccinated Italian man—a professional chamber musician who, due to his refusal to abide by Europe's ever-growing vaccination mandates, can no longer "check into a hotel, eat at a restaurant or get coffee at a bar." You are free to interpret the story as you wish. On one hand, it provides a gentle and sympathetic view of a phenomenon that many modern Americans do not fully believe in, namely the existence of Italy. On the other hand, it's hard to imagine anybody in this country or any other was piping up with won't somebody think of the over-eccentric chamber musicians? Or maybe it's a reminder that American anti-vax whiners have no freakin' idea how pampered they are. We're in the middle of a new world war, this one against an emergent virus that has killed millions and which we probably could have stood a chance against, if humanity spent...
    Novak Djokovic, who is not vaccinated against COVID-19, was scolded by panelists on ABC’s "The View" on Wednesday after the top-ranked tennis star’s appeal against an Australian deportation order was dismissed.  "Here is the bottom line, people are not putting up with it. Countries are not putting up with it, because it means that every time you sneeze or talk, you are spreading more hassle for them. They’re trying to clean their country up. They’re trying to put everybody in a mask and here you come, and you think tennis needs you that badly? No, honey, no," co-host Whoopi Goldberg said.  DJOKOVIC OUT OF AUSTRALIAN OPEN AFTER LOSING DEPORTATION APPEAL  Co-host Whoopi Goldberg doesn't think tennis "needs" Novak Djokovic. (https://twitter.com/TheView/status/1461032310715953165) The 34-year-old Serb’s fight to compete in the Australian Open came to a definitive end on Sunday after three Australian federal judges ruled in favor of Immigration Minister Alex Hawke’s decision to cancel the tennis champion's visa. The decision marked the end of a back-and-forth between Djokovic’s camp and the Australian government that began with Djokovic being detained upon arrival after being granted a medical exemption to...
    ESPN host Stephen A. Smith, after enduring hospitalization with COVID-19, said he "wouldn't be here" if he was not vaccinated. Smith returned to ESPN's First Take on Monday, explaining he was hospitalized last month with COVID-19. WATCH: DESANTIS BLASTS 'LOCKDOWN POLITICIANS' FOR VACATIONING IN FLORIDA "For me personally, it hit me differently," Smith said. "[Doctors] told me, had I not been vaccinated, I wouldn't be here. That's how bad I was ... I had pneumonia in both lungs. My liver was bad, and it ravaged me to the point where even now I have to monitor my volume, get to the gym every day ... I'm still not 100% with my lungs, but I'm COVID negative ... I'm on the road to recovery." Smith added he had a 103-degree fever and woke up in "pools of sweat" while infected. "And it got to a point that right before New Year's Eve, I was in the hospital into New Year's Day," he said. "That's how I brought in the new year." Smith said he...
    UP TO three-quarters of side effects caused by the Covid jab might be "all in the head", experts say. A landmark new study from scientists at Harvard reveals millions could be suffering with the 'Nocebo' effect. 2Up to three-quarters of side effects caused by the jab may be imagined, a landmark new study has revealedCredit: LNP 2The Harvard study found many of those studied suffered from the 'nocebo effect' - meaning they experienced a reaction because they were expecting oneCredit: Getty The phenomenon occurs when someone faces an uncomfortable reaction to a drug - simply because they expected to. Some of those who have been jabbed have reported effects ranging from headaches to fatigue. In the new study, researchers drew on reports from 44,000 people - half of whom had actually been given a placebo, or fake vaccine, such as a saline solution, the Daily Mail reports. Many of those studied said they'd suffered a side effect - but in reality, they were likely linking unrelated issues to the jab. The scientists looked at side effects reported by the 22,000...
    Up to three-quarters of reported symptoms of the COVID-19 vaccines may not be entirely real, a new study suggests. A research team from Harvard University performed a meta analysis on 12 previous studies that compared reported side effects to the Covid vaccines to those reported by people who instead received a placebo. They found that 35 percent of placebo recipients reported an adverse event - something like a headache, fatigue or other symptoms - after receiving the first dose, and 32 percent did after the second. Researchers found that 76 percent of 'systemic' adverse events after receiving the jab - symptoms that do not appear at the site of injection and instead affect other parts of the body - were likely either imagined or a result of something other than the shots. They call this the 'nocebo' effect, when a person manifests or misattributes symptoms they are feeling to medicine or treatment they recently received.  These are usually symptoms a person is actually feeling, but misattributing to the vaccine, or just a result of anxiety they have over symptoms. Researchers...
    Jimmy Kimmel slammed Donald Trump for comments he made at his first rally of the year, hitting at him for baselessly claiming that White people are being pushed to the “back of the line” for Covid-19 vaccines and therapeutics. “Donald Trump is back on the road,” Kimmel said on Monday night, adding, “He ranted for an hour and 35 minutes. Maybe it’s me, but the material doesn’t — it’s actually not working. It was kind of like watching the Sex and the City reboot — it needed more Samantha or something.” Kimmel went on to play a clip of the former president telling the Arizona crowd that in New York state, White people are being forced to the “back of the line” for Covid-19 therapeutics. “If you’re White, you don’t get the vaccine, or if you’re White, you don’t get therapeutics,” he said. “It’s unbelievable to think this. And nobody wants this, Black people don’t want it, White people don’t want it, nobody wants it.” The claim is entirely untrue and based on a deep misunderstanding of New York health advisory guidelines, which are...
    IT'S more important than ever to get a flu jab this winter for a number of reasons. Immunity is low among Brits due to winter lockdowns, getting flu and Covid at the same time is dangerous, and you can protect yourself and others from serious illness. 1It's more important than ever to get your flu jab this yearCredit: LNP People often say getting the vaccine makes them feel ill afterwards which puts them off getting it. However, if this happens it's only temporary and very mild. The fact is, the flu jab doesn't make you sick. Flu jabs are made with either inactivated (killed) viruses, or with only a single protein from the flu virus, which will not be enough to cause illness. Dr Sarah Jarvis, GP and clinical director of Patient Access, told the Sun Online: "The flu vaccine does not contain any live virus so it physically cannot multiply when inside your body. Therefore, it cannot give you flu. "There are several reasons people feel unwell after a flu jab. "The first is, when you have the...
              by Alpha News Staff   The University of Minnesota admitted in an email to its student body that the COVID-19 vaccine doesn’t prevent transmission of the virus — yet the school says it will “probably” require more boosters for its students. Public Health Officer Jakub Tolar sent an email to the student body answering some frequently asked questions about the virus earlier this month. “I’m vaccinated, does that mean I can’t get COVID-19?” one question reads. “No,” the school responds, stressing that omicron remains “easily transmissible” even among the university’s fully-vaccinated population. Despite this, the school indicates it will likely require more vaccines. “I’m vaccinated and boosted, am I done?” the next question reads. “Probably not,” the university responds. “Updated and amplified protection is key to staying healthy and bringing the pandemic under control,” it continues, apparently suggesting booster mandates are soon to come. Already, President Joan Gabel is sternly asking students to get another vaccine. The university has also denied the reality of natural immunity. “Based on current data, no,” previous infections do not protect people from reinfections, it says. “You...

    Donald Trump told the crowd at his Arizona rally that White people are being pushed to the “back of the line” for Covid-19 vaccines and therapeutics, a claim that relies on a misunderstanding of New York guidelines. “The left is now rationing life-saving therapeutics based on race, discriminating against and denigrating, just denigrating white people to determine who lives and who dies,” Trump said at the rally, adding, “You get it based on race. In fact, in New York state, if you’re White, you have to go to the back of the line to get medical help. If you’re White, you go right to the back of the line.” The former president was basing his claim on a Wall Street Journal op-ed by John B. Judis and Ruy Teixeira, which took issue with New York state’s recent guidelines regarding the distribution of monoclonal antibodies and oral antivirals such as Paxlovid. The state’s guidelines are not “race-based,” as Trump alleged during the rally, but based on risk factors, as eligibility to receive oral treatments are authorized for patients who meet certain criteria. The guidelines, based...
    From the Proud Boys to QAnon to anti-vaccine groups, far-right conspiracy theories are all blending together into one chunky soup of paranoia. Media Matters for America has been tracking the slow merge between "QAnon" conspiracy theorists and longtime anti-vaccination conspiracy theorists, and it's worth a read. The takeaway point is that anti-vax "leaders" have been quick to seize on the nation's new largest collection of gullibles, and have been increasingly given platforms by Q-centric hosts and events so as to explain to the nice weird people who believe that world elites are harvesting the blood of children that Actually, not getting polio has been a major part of this conspiracy all along. And yes, that includes disgraced researcher Andrew Wakefield, the fraud who invented much of modern anti-vax conspiracy movement in the first place. He's been looking for allies inside the "Q" movement and finding them. But a twist is that the antivax-QAnon relationship is a two way street; while QAnon audiences have been eager to hear from their anti-vax conspiracy comrades, Media Matters notes that the anti-vaccine leaders are themselves...
    During the Supreme Court’s hearing on the validity of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, Trump-appointed Justice Neil Gorsuch directed a question at the attorneys concerning why the U.S. doesn’t have similar mandates for flu vaccines. “We have flu vaccines,” said Gorsuch. “Flu kills, I believe, hundreds of thousands of people every year.” When it was pointed out that this is an order of magnitude off from the real impact of flu, the Supreme Court ushered out a face-saving revised transcript, omitting the “of” so that Gorsuch said “hundreds, thousands” rather than “hundreds of thousands.” That’s not what he said. Even in the audio of this article supposedly debunking the idea that Gorsuch made such a claim, it’s obvious that “hundreds of thousands” is exactly what he said. But apart from Gorsuch’s statement, claims about the deadliness of the flu have been raised by right-wing media and politicians throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The truth is that flu kills only a small fraction of the number of people who have died from COVID-19 in each year of the pandemic. However, flu does kill far more people...

    The French parliament this Sunday approved a bill to introduce a vaccine pass in the final vote, which the government wants to implement as soon as possible in the face of a resurgence of the Covit-19 epidemic. With 215 votes against 58, 7 abstained. Socialist representatives want to send legislation to the Constitutional Court, which will continue to examine possible violations of “fundamental freedoms”, which will delay the passage of the law for several days. This Saturday night, the Senate, the upper house of the French parliament, voted on the bill, although it had several disagreements with the National Assembly, which had the last word. Sunday’s referendum put an end to two weeks of particularly tumultuous legislative process, interrupted by episodes of political storm created by President Emmanuel Macron. The Vaccine Pass is an attempt by the French government to impose large social restrictions on people who do not want to be vaccinated against Covit-19 and to force about five million people to be vaccinated. The law replaced the previous health passport (vaccine or negative test), using one exclusively on...
    Los Angeles Times business columnist Michael Hiltzik is doubled down on the notion, people should mock the unvaccinated who have died from the coronavirus. Hiltzik explained in a Saturday appearance on CNN that even though it is culturally proper to mourn the dead and remember the good they did while living, it is not "entirely appropriate" when it comes to those who died of COVID-19. "So many of them have actually promoted reckless, dangerous policies and… they took innocent people along with them," he said. "Every one of these deaths is a teachable moment and, unfortunately, we haven’t been learning from the lesson that we should be hearing from them." SALT LAKE CITY TRIBUNE OP-ED CALLS FOR NATIONAL GUARD TO KEEP UNVACCINATED PEOPLE IN THEIR HOMES Hiltzik released a column last week titled, "Mocking anti-vaxxers’ deaths is ghoulish, yes — but necessary" where he addressed the death of Kelly Ernby, a deputy district attorney in Orange County, California, who reportedly died of complications from the coronavirus last week after opposing vaccine mandates. The columnist specifically explored how mockery "is not...
    The Marine Corps granted two religious exemption requests for the coronavirus vaccine, the service announced Thursday, marking the first time any such accommodation was affirmed despite thousands of requests. Religious exemptions are hard to come by in the military. This is the first the Marines have granted in at least a decade, according to the Military Times. The lack of such accommodations as it relates to the coronavirus has also become a source of political division, a microcosm of the perpetual debate regarding whether mandating the vaccine comports with people's First Amendment rights. Even though each service branch has reached the mid-90th percentile in vaccination rate among active-duty troops, the select few who have refused, a count that is approximately in the tens of thousands, are finding allies on the political right. MARINES GRANT TWO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS, MARKING FIRST ACROSS MILITARY BRANCHES Dozens of Republican lawmakers and the America First Policy Institute, a policy group backed by former President Donald Trump, filed an amicus brief in support of a group of roughly three dozen Navy SEALs who successfully sued the...
    A STANDBY contingent of vaccine volunteers to take pressure off the NHS is part of a ten-point plan to live with Covid, Labour said last night. A permanent ‘Jabs Army’ would  be deployed nationwide at short notice in case a new variant emerges. 2A permanent ‘Jabs Army’ would be deployed nationwide at short notice in case a new variant emergesCredit: PA 2The ten-point plan would aim to take the pressure of the NHS and better enable the population to live with CovidCredit: PA Shadow Health Secretary Wes Streeting is announcing the move following the success of The Sun’s longstanding network to deliver jabs. The party say barriers and bureaucracy meant many of the 750,000 people who signed up in just four days weren’t properly utilised.

Mr Streeting said: “The best of Britain is getting us through this pandemic. "A Jabs Army can ready the country for future...
