HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Hawaii Nurses Association sounded the alarm about low staffing levels at skilled nursing homes. The president of the union said members are overworked, while at least one facility battled a COVID outbreak.

At least 54 residents and 25 staff members at the Care Center of Honolulu tested positive for COVID-19.

“We don’t have the specifics about the origins of this particular outbreak, but it has been a significant outbreak,” Healthcare Association of Hawaii President and CEO Hilton Raethel said. “And certainly one of the most significant outbreaks that we have experienced in any of our facilities for quite some time.”

A spokesperson working with Care Center of Honolulu confirmed the source of coronavirus infection was traced to a patient who was transferred into the facility.

The Care Center of Honolulu shared a statement with KHON2 News.

Like a number of nursing homes around the state, the delta variant resulted in a COVID outbreak in September at our facility.  While 91% of our staff are vaccinated, 54 patients tested positive, the majority of whom were vaccinated. On average, over 80% of our patients are vaccinated. 

Upon learning of our first infected resident, we immediately tested residents and staff in the facility and took steps to isolate infected residents and institute protocols to protect staff and residents. We are testing residents and staff more frequently than required, and are grateful to have been commended by the state Department of Health for our handling of this outbreak.

Every member of the Care Center of Honolulu’s staff has been making an extraordinary effort to provide the highest levels of care for our patients. We have nothing but praise for our nurses, who like their counterparts everywhere, are meeting the challenges imposed by the pandemic in a heroic fashion.

We regret that our high regard for our nurses has been brought into question by false statements made by the Hawaii Nurses’ Association. No nurse has been suspended, and we continue to work collaboratively with our nurses to manage our patient care and their schedules.

We do agree with Hawaii Nurses’ Association that there is a shortage of nurses in long-term nursing facilities that has become even more acute during the pandemic. We have also asked for help from Healthcare Association of Hawaii. Our elected officials in Washington, and others in the state’s Department of Health are trying to find solutions to this problem facing all long-term nursing facilities and the healthcare system overall.


More than two-thirds of fully vaccinated prisoners contracted COVID-19 during an outbreak inside a Texas prison, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in a study.

The vaccine, the CDC said, protected the prisoners against severe COVID-19 symptoms. COVID-19 is the illness caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.

The agency said that 129 out of 185 fully vaccinated prisoners caught the CCP virus, according to data compiled by the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the CDC in the agency’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report published Tuesday. Separately, of 42 unvaccinated prisoners, 93 percent caught the virus during the outbreak in the undisclosed prison.

  • Pfizer admits it’s treating Israel as a unique “laboratory” to assess COVID jab effects. Whatever happens in Israel can reliably be expected to happen elsewhere, months later
  • Pfizer entered into an exclusivity agreement with the Israeli Ministry of Health, so the only COVID shot available is Pfizer’s. The Pfizer shot has a higher risk for heart inflammation among young men than some of the other COVID shots, but Israeli youth have no option but to get the most dangerous one
  • Pfizer’s shot went from a 95% effectiveness in December 2020 to 39% by late July when the Delta strain became predominant in Israel. In response to obvious vaccine failure, Israel started giving out third boosters at the end of July 2021
  • Vaccine failure is also evident in Israeli data showing fully vaccinated are at higher risk of severe illness when infected with SARS-CoV-2 or any of its variants than unvaccinated, and now make up the bulk of COVID-related hospitalizations and deaths
  • Natural immunity is far superior to the protection you get from the COVID shot, because when you recover from the infection, your body makes antibodies against all five proteins of the virus, plus memory T cells that remain even once antibody levels diminish


….a fake 9th grader formula to scare weak minds, still being used almost 2 years later.

Scott Gottlieb, the former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), admitted during an interview on Face the Nation that the six foot social distancing rule recommended by public health officials for months on end was actually “arbitrary in and of itself,” and he noted that “nobody knows where it came from.”

The CDC guide for coronavirus prevention in schools, last updated August 5, 2021, now says schools should “maintain at least 3 feet of physical distance between students within classrooms to reduce transmission risk.”

Trump said, “Some of the intelligence is classified and I can’t talk about it, but it most likely, and when I say most likely, like 95%, came from the Wuhan lab. I don’t know if they had bad thoughts or whether it was gross incompetence, but one way or the other it came out of Wuhan, it came from the Wuhan lab. I started hearing stories … that there were lots of body bags outside of the lab. I heard that a long time ago. And if they did in fact have body bags, that was one little indication wasn’t it?”

Where is the chinavirus money going in CA?

California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s state housing department received $316 million from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) through the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program, but “as of early August 2021, the federal government reported that the State had spent only $2 million of the $316 million it was allocated — less than 1 percent,” according to the California state auditor’s report. 

(hopefully) The COVID narrative is beginning to fall apart

Ultimately, enforced vaccination against COVID may have been the greatest mistake of this generation, an instance of what is called “imperfect vaccine hypothesis.” Molecular biologist James Bull of the University of Texas is unsure of the efficacy of the COVID vaccines, wondering if they merely reduce symptoms, protect patients from infection, or result in transmitting the virus. The issue is crucial. For the COVID injections are not “perfect vaccines.” They have been shown to be “leaky,” creating a breeding ground for escaped variants and enabling the disease to replicate and “shed” to other individuals. “Breakthrough cases” and associated viral transmission are a reality and have been well-documented. Most alarmingly, the New Zealand tracking system reports more deaths from the vaccines than from COVID since 2020. As J.D. Rucker writes, “Covid-19 deaths are invariably inflated in most countries while vaccine death numbers are always underreported…it’s certain the vaccine death numbers are much, much higher.”


An FDA advisory panel has “soundly rejected a plan” to offer Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine booster shots to most Americans in what represents a major blow to the multinational pharmaceutical company that saw profits soar through the COVID-19 pandemic.

The vote, held earlier today, was 16-2 against advising COVID-19 booster shots for Americans. Per the Associated Press, this also represents “a blow to the Biden administration’s” mass vaccination efforts.

“Members of the Food and Drug Administration panel of outside efforts voiced frustration that Pfizer had provided little data on safety of extra doses,” the report explained. They also “complained that data provided by the Israeli researchers about their booster campaign might not be suitable for predicting the U.S. experience.”


Here is a chart showing the date the mandate was enacted. At that time the state said it would take two weeks to work, but later amended that to four weeks. So we labeled four weeks later, see the big drop? Me either. See the huge spike while mask wearing was 90% plus. And then there is the date the mandate finally expired. Kind of ironic how the mask mandate didn’t work to reduce cases until the mandate was ended, or is that paradoxical? You will note that at no time during the mandate were cases ever lower than before the mandate. And as I constantly said, what really matters is mask wearing. Throughout this period Minnesota had one of the highest mask-wearing rates in the nation, most of the time over 90%. Yeah those masks worked great, as virus collection devices.


According to one report, 22 U.S. F-22 military pilots and 16 crew members for B-52s have walked off the job due to Covid-19 vaccine mandates.

That after a military-wide email was reportedly issued instructing all troops to get vaccinated immediately.

In recent weeks, a dozen military troops and officers from the Air Force, Army and Navy spoke to Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky), me, and other reporters to say they will retire or risk court martial before agreeing to be vaccinated for Covid-19. They claim there is a significant number of their peers who feel the same way. They say the mandates will impact national security and military readiness and, in some cases already have.

Their objections range from the fact that some already have natural immunity from previous infection, to moral and ethical objections.


The study found that from March 2020 through early January 2021—before vaccination was widespread, and before the Delta variant had arrived—the proportion of patients with mild or asymptomatic disease was 36 percent. From mid-January through the end of June 2021, however, that number rose to 48 percent. In other words, the study suggests that roughly half of all the hospitalized patients showing up on COVID-data dashboards in 2021 may have been admitted for another reason entirely, or had only a mild presentation of disease.

This increase was even bigger for vaccinated hospital patients, of whom 57 percent had mild or asymptomatic disease. But unvaccinated patients have also been showing up with less severe symptoms, on average, than earlier in the pandemic: The study found that 45 percent of their cases were mild or asymptomatic since January 21.

A leaked Zoom call between doctors and marketing staff at Novant Health New Hanover Regional Medical Center in North Carolina has gone viral. It shows staff plotting to “scare” the public with inflated COVID numbers. “I guess my feeling at this point and time is maybe we need to be completely a little bit more scary [sic] to the public,” says Dr. Mary Rudyk, who served as the former chief of medical staff. “There are many people still hospitalized that we are considering post-covid but we’re not counting in those numbers, so how do we include those post-covid people in the numbers of the patients we have in the hospital?”

Us government concealing negative reactions to the ‘vaccines”

Joe Biden told OSHA to start hiding information from the public to promote the COVID vaccine. Until this summer, OSHA required employers to retain records of any worker who suffered a serious side effect from the vaccine. Then in June, OSHA’s guidance suddenly changed to this: ‘OSHA will not enforce federal record recording requirements that require any employers to record worker side effects from COVID-19 vaccination.’

“That was a major change, especially since we’re still learning so much about these vaccines and their possible side effects. Just hours ago, for example, the Telegraph in Britain reported that ‘teenage boys are six times more likely to suffer from heart problems from the vaccine than be hospitalized from COVID-19.’

***Support The Liberty Daily and Mike Lindell — use code TLD at and get up to 66% off!***
“And in Israel, where more than 80% of adults are vaccinated, COVID cases are spiking. Israel now has one of the world’s highest daily infection rates. So what explains that? In his remarks to the nation, Joe Biden didn’t answer that. Instead, he put OSHA, the same agency that’s been hiding evidence of vaccine side effects, in charge of forcing millions of Americans to take the COVID vaccine.

“Joe Biden didn’t even bother to ask Congress. He said the new mandate is justified because COVID is a quote, emergency. Then he walked away without taking questions once again. But let’s look at the facts. On average, more than 98% of COVID-19 patients in the United States survive. That number is well over 99% for every age group, except for the very elderly, whether they’re vaccinated or not.”


100% unconstitutional


REPORTER: Governor, the president had a lot to say yesterday, and he didn’t say your name, but obviously was referring to you, what you have to say to him that when it came to about the mask mandates?

RON DESANTIS, GOVERNOR OF FLORIDA: Well I would just say generally when you’re taking action that’s unconstitutional, that threatens the jobs of the people in my state, many, many thousands of jobs, I’m standing for them. We’re going to protect their jobs against federal overreach. This is a guy who criticizes the state of Florida for protecting parents’ rights. He says school boards should be able to eliminate parents’ rights and force five-year-old kids to wear masks all day. That’s what he thinks is appropriate government. Yet, here he comes from Washington, D.C. instituting an unprecedented mandate, which even his own people have acknowledged in the past is not constitutional. That’s not leadership.

And I think the problem I have with Joe Biden, more than anything, this guy doesn’t take responsibility for anything. He’s always trying to blame other people, blame other states. This is a guy that promised when he ran for president, that he would shut down the virus. If you look now there’s 300% more cases in this country today than a year ago when we had no vaccines at all. So his policies are not working.

He’s doubling down on things that are going to be very destructive for the livelihoods of many, many Americans, and obviously going to be destructive to our constitutional system and the rule of law. And so these are times when you believe in that constitution, you got to stand up. And obviously the substantive issues’ important because there are places that are going to toss aside people who’ve worked, they’ve worked this whole time throughout COVID, now all of a sudden they should be tossed aside? They were working when nobody had vaccine, you don’t know their history, you don’t know why they’re making decisions that they’re making. Many of these people have already recovered and they have immunity. The idea that somehow you have somebody that gets a Johnson and Johnson, they can work, but someone that’s got natural immunity somehow can’t?

That natural immunity is strong. So it’s not based on science. And you can say, he’s saying, he’s losing patience with people. You know, at the end of the day, we don’t live with a one person rule in this country. We live in a constitutional system, which people’s rights are respected, but particularly in this juncture, their livelihoods and their jobs have to be protected. I mean, just think about, you know, what this mandate would do. It’s going to drive people out of work, out of hospitals, out of all this stuff where you have a need for people. So it’s totally counterproductive, and I think it will ultimately lose in court. But before that there needs to be action taken to protect the people of our state and hopefully the entire United States. Nobody should lose their job based on this decision.

Who Will Pay for ( unconstitutional ) Mandatory ( illegal ) Weekly COVID Tests for Businesses?

Psaki: ‘Vaccines Are Free’

PSAKI: Well, the vaccines are free and available to everyone in the country, so that shouldn’t be costly or available or—

ALEXANDER: What if they’re given an opt-out? They want to do the weekly tests. You couldn’t say earlier who would pay for that test. Businesses are saying, how do we get these tests to our employees? What if our employees don’t want to pay for it themselves? Do we have to pay for it? What does that cost us at the end of the day given that they have the right to opt out? 

PSAKI: They have to make that decision themselves. It’s certainly more cost effective to require vaccines. They may not decide to do that. That’s up to them to decide to do.

ALEXANDER: So ultimately, the burden’s on that business to make that decision or just swallow the cost?

PSAKI: Correct. Most of these businesses can absolutely afford it, and what we’re talking about here is saving people’s lives and protecting them. I’d also say there are a number of companies that have already applied this, have already put requirements in place. It makes for safer workplaces. It makes people want to come back to the workplace, makes for healthier and happier employees who know they’re safe when they go to work, and that’s a cost as well.

ALEXANDER: Obviously testing is cheaper for a place like United. They can afford it more easily than a place that’s only 100 people big. That’s why I asked.

PSAKI: I understand, but again, vaccines, free, available everywhere in the country. Requiring that is free and shouldn’t cost businesses any money.

ALEXANDER: Understood. Religious exemptions right now. Can you give us a better understanding? How would that work? I know how you just said there would be religious exemptions that would exist for federal workers and the like. How about for megachurches and other religious organizations in this country with more than 100 employees? What right do they have under these yet-to-be created rules?

PSAKI: Again, the rules are still being created, but we have obviously had religious exemptions even for federal employees. I’;m sure that will be a factor taken into consideration, but I can’t make a prediction for what the final rules will look like.

ALEXANDER: The intention is I presume that if you’re a religious organization. You say, hey, we don’t want to have to do this in our organization. 

PSAKI: Again, this is going to be for OSHA to determine as they’re doing the rulemaking and the Department of Labor, so I will not get ahead of that process.

The US recorded almost four times as many new COVID-19 cases in the run up to Labor Day weekend this year than in the same period in 2020.

On September 5, 2020, the weekly average number of new daily COVID-19 cases was 41,488, according to Oxford University’s Our World in Data. Exactly a year later, on Sunday, the number was 163,728, which is 294% higher.

  • The US recorded four times as many COVID-19 cases in the run up to Labor Day than in the same period last year.
  • On Sunday, average new daily cases were at 163,728, compared to 41,488 on the same day in 2020.
  • The highly infectious Delta variant continues to spread around the country.

Rivera said, “Ladies and gentlemen, there is long-settled law in the United States of America that your freedoms cannot infringe on my family’s health. You don’t have the right to spread smallpox or Measles or Polio or whatever it is to my family. I have a right to protect my family. My government has the obligation to protect me and my family.”

He continued, “Get the damn vaccine. I have grandchildren. You have to get vaccinated.”

Newly released U.S. government documents show that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) provided funding for the gain-of-function research conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) that created novel coronaviruses with the ability to infect humans, and one previously undisclosed SARS-related coronavirus engineered at the Wuhan lab was reportedly demonstrated to be more pathogenic to humans than the virus from which it was originally constructed.

Ebright concluded his thread by stating: “The documents make it clear that assertions by the NIH Director, Francis Collins, and the NIAID Director, Anthony Fauci, that the NIH did not support gain-of-function research or potential pandemic pathogen enhancement at WIV are untruthful.”


On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” White House COVID Response Coordinator Jeff Zients legally justified President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate by stating that part of the Department of Labor’s authority is their responsibility to ensure workers are “not at risk. And they are with unvaccinated workers in the workplace.”

Zients stated, “The Department of Labor has a responsibility, through OSHA, to protect workers, to make sure they’re not in grave danger, or, in simple terms, they’re not at risk. And they are with unvaccinated workers in the workplace. So, this is part of their responsibility, part of their legal authority to put in place this requirement that workers are either vaccinated or tested at least once per week, and that applies to all employers greater than 100 employees.”


Gov. Kevin Stitt (R-OK):

It is not the government’s role to dictate to private businesses what to do. Once again President Biden is demonstrating his complete disregard for individual freedoms and states’ rights. As long as I am governor, there will be no government vaccine mandates in Oklahoma.

My administration will continue to defend Oklahoma values and fight back against the Biden administration’s federal overreach.

Zients stated, “The Department of Labor has a responsibility, through OSHA, to protect workers, to make sure they’re not in grave danger, or, in simple terms, they’re not at risk.


“It’s about the collective good,” board President Kelly Gonez said before the vote, reported the New York Post. “It’s about what’s best for the community as a whole and sometimes that necessitates challenging decisions.”

All other children 12 and over are mandated to obtain the first jab by November 21, and the second by December 19.

Children not yet 12 years of age will be required, according to the board, to get their first shot no later than 30 days after their 12th birthdays, and the second one no later than eight weeks after their 12th birthday.

All district students and charter school students are required to obtain the shots


Here’s the “Definition of Terms” for Immunization as captured on August 26, 2021. I’ve highlighted the key points.

Immunity: Protection from an infectious disease. If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected.

Vaccine: A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but can also be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.

Immunization: A process by which a person becomes protected against a disease through vaccination. This term is often used interchangeably with vaccination or inoculation.

These definitions have been in place since at least May 16, 2018.

Here’s the “Definition of Terms” for immunizations now, which was updated on September 1, 2021, with changes highlighted.

Immunity: Protection from an infectious disease. If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected.

Vaccine: A preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but some can be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.

Immunization: A process by which a person becomes protected against a disease through vaccination. This term is often used interchangeably with vaccination or inoculation.



A doctor in south Florida says she is not seeing people for in-person visits if they are not vaccinated for COVID-19. Dr. Linda Marraccini says patients are still eligible for telemedicine, but she will not patients if they have not gotten their COVID-19 shots.

“I understand that people are free to choose, but to me, it’s a problem when it affects other people,” Dr. Linda Marraccini said in remarks published on “This is a problem that really everyone needs to help out with and it’s affecting our collective communal health.”


From AP, “Montana only state to ban vaccine requirements for employees”:

While many large companies across the U.S. have announced that COVID-19 vaccines will be required for their employees to return to work in-person, there is one state where such requirements are banned: Montana.

Under a new law passed by the state’s Republican-controlled Legislature earlier this year, requiring vaccines as a condition for employment is deemed “discrimination” and a violation of the state’s human rights laws.


A recent New York magazine article states that the science on masks “remains uncertain,” but noted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in May published a large-scale study of COVID transmission in US schools.

The study, which analyzed some 90,000 elementary students in 169 Georgia schools from November 16 to December 11, found that there was no statistically significant difference in schools that required students to wear masks compared to schools where masks were optional.



The Truth about School Mask Mandates


Few people have neutral feelings when it comes to mask mandates. As the coronavirus disrupts a third consecutive school year, emotions on the topic are running high for school leaders, teachers, parents, and even students. Those in favor of mask mandates and those opposed seem to agree on one thing — they are going to dig in their heels, fighting for their position.

As emotions run high, consideration of the facts about masks is sometimes secondary. The typical cloth facial covering is designed to prevent spit and blood from being transformed in non-surgical medical settings. And it’s not uncommon for a package of masks to list an explicit warning that they do not prevent the spread of infectious diseases or viruses. This is because cloth masks have holes, visual to the naked eye, that measure between five and 200 micrometers in diameter. However, coronavirus particles are a mere 0.1 micrometers in diameter.

Some have joked that wearing a cloth mask to protect against the coronavirus is similar to using a chain link fence to prevent mosquitoes. N95 masks, on the other hand, when properly fitting and providing a tight seal around the face, can filter approximately 99.8 percent of 0.1 micrometer particles. So if businesses, schools, and a host of public places are going to require masks, why not go with masks that actually have a significant capability of blocking the virus?

Government control stepped in when Covid made its debut in the first few months of 2020. As more information about the virus became available, and as the months of trying a variety of measures aimed at preventing the spread of the disease played out — hand washing, surface cleaning, mask-wearing, and social distancing — the edicts became more restrictive.

Even today, nearly twenty months later, healthy, young Americans will stand on assigned dots on the floor, placed a magical six feet apart, not because it’s scientifically valid but simply because they have been conditioned to comply with micromanaging mandates.

Past generations of healthy, young Americans willingly risked their lives for our freedom. Sadly, it is all too common today to see many willingly succumbing to government dictates that control their basic everyday decisions through stay-at-home orders, mask mandates, limited religious gatherings, and most recently through forced vaccinations. It’s not uncommon these days to see a young person riding a skateboard outdoors alone while wearing a mask.

If we don’t courageously speak up and fight back, gone will be the days where America could rightfully be called the land of the free and the brave.


It seems that our government is no longer operated by the people, for the people, as Abraham Lincoln famously charged in the Gettysburg Address. Rather, those in political power are mandating what should be worn and what one is permitted to say. If we don’t courageously speak up and fight back, gone will be the days where America could rightfully be called the land of the free and the brave. God bless those who are taking a stand. And right now, some of the bravest voices are parents who are pushing back against school boards that are forcing far-left agendas on children, at the expense of their education. The latest control tactic is the masking of children in schools.

Data compiled as of August 13 reveal statewide mask mandates for all schools in California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Virginia, Washington, and Washington D.C., regardless of a person’s vaccination status. New Mexico is mandating masks in schools for anyone not vaccinated, which is 100 percent of students under the age of 12. Conversely, only nine states prohibit schools from mandating masks — Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah. The remainder of states allow schools at the local level to mandate masks if desired, which is frequently occurring regardless of coronavirus case numbers in the community.

Let’s join those courageous parents and demand that our government-run public schools, funded with taxpayer dollars, return authority to where it belongs — parents. Families should decide whether it is in the best interest of their children to wear a mask over their face for a six-and-a-half-hour school day.

“shots ” for life ?

The prime minister of one of the world’s most vaccinated nations, Israel, told citizens the Pfizer vaccine won’t protect them from the COVID-19 variant that is dominating their nation and the United States.

“People who received two vaccine shots walk around feeling like they are protected … they don’t understand that the second vaccine has faded against the delta — they must quickly get vaccinated with the third dose,” said Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

His conclusion comports with a study of U.S. long-term care facilities that found vaccine effectiveness against any COVID-19 infection dropped to 53% in late June to early August.


1) New York University, May 3, 2021

The authors studied the contrast between vaccine immunity and immunity from prior infection as it relates to stimulating the innate T-cell immunity, which is more durable than adaptive immunity through antibodies alone. They concluded, “In COVID-19 patients, immune responses were characterized by a highly augmented interferon response which was largely absent in vaccine recipients. Increased interferon signaling likely contributed to the observed dramatic upregulation of cytotoxic genes in the peripheral T cells and innate-like lymphocytes in patients but not in immunized subjects.”

The study further notes: “Analysis of B and T cell receptor repertoires revealed that while the majority of clonal B and T cells in COVID-19 patients were effector cells, in vaccine recipients clonally expanded cells were primarily circulating memory cells.” What this means in plain English is that effector cells trigger an innate response that is quicker and more durable, whereas memory response requires an adaptive mode that is slower to respond. Natural immunity conveys much more innate immunity, while the vaccine mainly stimulates adaptive immunity.

2) Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri, May 24, 2021, published in Nature

The media scared people last year into thinking that if antibody levels wane, it means their immunity is weakening, as we are indeed seeing with the vaccines today. But as Nature wrote, “People who recover [even] from mild COVID-19 have bone-marrow cells that can churn out antibodies for decades.” Thus, aside from the robust T-cell memory that is likely lacking from most or all vaccinated individuals, prior infection creates memory B cells that “patrol the blood for reinfection, while bone marrow plasma cells (BMPCs) hide away in bones, trickling out antibodies for decades” as needed.

It’s therefore not surprising that early on in the pandemic, an in-vitro study in Singapore found the immunity against SARS-CoV-2 to last even 17 years later from SARS-1-infected patients who never even had COVID-19.

3) Cleveland Clinic, June 19, 2021

In a study of 1,359 previously infected health care workers in the Cleveland Clinic system, not a single one of them was reinfected 10 months into the pandemic, despite some of these individuals being around COVID-positive patients more than the regular population.

4) Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle/Emory University, Washington, July 14, 2021, published in Cell Medicine

The study found that most recovered patients produced durable antibodies, memory B cells, and durable polyfunctional CD4 and CD8 T cells, which target multiple parts of the virus. “Taken together, these results suggest that broad and effective immunity may persist long-term in recovered COVID-19 patients,” concluded the authors. In other words, unlike with the vaccines, no boosters are required to assist natural immunity.

The authors conclude: “Natural infection induced expansion of larger CD8 T cell clones occupied distinct clusters, likely due to the recognition of a broader set of viral epitopes presented by the virus not seen in the mRNA vaccine” (emphasis added).

6) University of California, San Francisco, May 12, 2021

Conclusion: “In infection-naïve individuals, the second dose boosted the quantity but not quality of the T cell response, while in convalescents the second dose helped neither. Spike-specific T cells from convalescent vaccinees differed strikingly from those of infection-naïve vaccinees, with phenotypic features suggesting superior long-term persistence and ability to home to the respiratory tract including the nasopharynx.”

Given that we know the virus spreads through the nasopharynx, the fact that natural infection conveys much stronger mucosal immunity makes it clear that the previously infected are much safer to be around than infection-naive people with the vaccine. The fact that this study artfully couched the choices between vaccinated naive people and vaccinated recovered rather than just plain recovered doesn’t change the fact that it’s the prior infection, not the vaccine, conveying mucosal immunity. In fact, studies now show that infected vaccinated people contain just as much viral load in their nasopharynx as those unvaccinated, a clearly unmistakable conclusion from the virus spreading wildly in many areas with nearly every adult vaccinated.

Aside from more robust T cell and memory B cell immunity, which is more important than antibody levels, Israeli researchers found that antibodies wane slower among those with prior infection. “In vaccinated subjects, antibody titers decreased by up to 40% each subsequent month while in convalescents they decreased by less than 5% per month.”

8) Irish researchers, published in Wiley Review, May 18, 2021

Researchers conducted a review of 11 cohort studies with over 600,000 total recovered COVID patients who were followed up with over 10 months. The key finding? Unlike the vaccine, after about four to six months, they found “no study reporting an increase in the risk of reinfection over time.”

This is one of the only studies that analyzed the population‐level risk of reinfection based on whole genome sequencing in a subset of patients with supporting evidence of reinfection. Researchers estimate the risk at 0.66 per 10,000 person-weeks. Most importantly, the study found no evidence of waning of immunity for over seven months of the follow-up period. The few reinfections that did occur “were less severe than primary infections,” and “only one reinfection was severe, two were moderate, and none were critical or fatal.” Also, unlike many vaccinated breakthrough infections in recent weeks that have been very symptomatic, “most reinfections were diagnosed incidentally through random or routine testing, or through contact tracing.”

10) Israeli researchers, April 24, 2021

Several months ago, Israeli researchers studied 6.3 million Israelis and their COVID status and were able to confirm only one death in the entire country of someone who supposedly already had the virus, and he was over 80 years old. Contrast that to the torrent of hospitalizations and deaths we are seeing in those vaccinated more than five months ago in Israel.

11) French researchers, May 11, 2021

Researchers tested blood samples from health care workers who never had the virus but got both Pfizer shots against blood samples from those health care workers who had a previous mild infection and a third group of patients who had a serious case of COVID. They found, “No neutralization escape could be feared concerning the two variants of concern [Alpha and Beta] in both populations” of those previously infected.

Many people are wondering: If they got only an asymptomatic infection, are they less protected against future infection than those who suffered infection with more evident symptoms? These researchers believe the opposite is true. “Asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2–infected individuals are not characterized by weak antiviral immunity; on the contrary, they mount a highly functional virus-specific cellular immune response,” wrote the authors after studying T cell responses from both symptomatic and asymptomatic convalescent patients. If anything, they found that those with asymptomatic infection only had signs of non-inflammatory cytokines, which means that the body is primed to deal with the virus without producing that dangerous inflammatory response that is killing so many hospitalized with the virus.

13) Korean researchers, published in Nature Communications on June 30, 2021

The authors found that the T cells created from convalescent patients had “stem-cell like” qualities. After studying SARS-CoV-2-specific memory T cells in recovered patients who had the virus in varying degrees of severity, the authors concluded that long-term “SARS-CoV-2-specific T cell memory is successfully maintained regardless of the severity of COVID-19.”

14) Rockefeller University, July 29, 2021

The researchers note that far from suffering waning immunity, memory B cells in those with prior infection “express increasingly broad and potent antibodies that are resistant to mutations found in variants of concern.” They conclude that “memory antibodies selected over time by natural infection have greater potency and breadth than antibodies elicited by vaccination.” And again, this is even before getting into the innate cellular immunity which is exponentially greater in those with natural immunity.

15) Researchers from Madrid and Mount Sinai, New York, March 22, 2021

Until now, we have established that natural immunity provides better adaptive B cell and innate T cell responses that last longer and work for the variants as compared to the vaccines. Moreover, those with prior infection are at greater risk for bad side effects from the vaccines, rendering the campaign to vaccinate the previously infected both unnecessary and dangerous. But the final question is: Do the vaccines possibly harm the superior T cell immunity built up from prior infection?

Immunologists from Mount Sinai in New York and Hospital La Paz in Madrid have raised serious concerns. In a shocking discovery after monitoring a group of vaccinated people both with and without prior infection, they found “in individuals with a pre-existing immunity against SARS-CoV-2, the second vaccine dose not only fail to boost humoral immunity but determines a contraction of the spike-specific T cell response.” They also note that other research has shown “the second vaccination dose appears to exert a detrimental effect in the overall magnitude of the spike-specific humoral response in COVID-19 recovered individuals.”

Common-Good Horseshit communism lies as vaxxing has nothing to do with anyone but yourself


Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones declared Tuesday that taking the coronavirus vaccine is for the “common good,” according to a report.

Speaking to Dallas radio station 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday, Jones tried to have the topic of taking the vaccine both ways, saying, “Everyone has a right to make their own decisions regarding their health and their body. I believe in that completely — until your decision as to yourself impacts negatively many others. Then the common good takes over,” Fox 4 reported

“We have 93 million Americans today that are not vaccinated, and we need to do everything that we possibly can,” he said. “And I tell my private businesses all the time, I hope you mandate vaccines for people coming in. Until we make it hard for people to get on planes or go to movie theaters, people just aren’t going to do it.”

“We” could start to really get some good control over this as we get into 2022,” Fauci said on Monday in an interview on All Things Considered.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top disease expert in the U.S., said in an interview Monday that he misspoke when he said the country may get the virus under control by fall 2022—another full year.

Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CNN the error occurred during an earlier interview with NPR.

Fauci apologized and said he listened to the interview. He tried to clarify and said if more Americans sign up to take the vaccines – as well as those who have already recovered from the virus–the country could get “some good control in the spring.”

SD Noem’s logic is inconsistent.

Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD) is not backing Republican legislation seeking to ban so-called vaccine mandates within the state.

Republican state Reps. Jon Hansen and Scott Odenbach are trying to null businesses mandating their employees to get vaccinated against Covid-19 through the “COVID-19 Vaccine Freedom of Conscience Act.”

Noem claims such legislation is a slippery slope that could lead to other dictates toward businesses Republicans might not like. “If we mandate one thing, are we setting a precedent for what we are telling businesses they have to do far into the future?” Noem posed.

The Republican governor has, though, banned vaccine mandates for employees in state and local government in SD.

She has also argued that employees of private businesses opposed to a vaccine mandate can go work elsewhere.


Fauci then dismissed freedom as an after thought, noting “I know I respect people’s freedom, but when you’re talking about a public health crisis that we’ve been going through for well over a year and a half, the time has come. Enough is enough. We’ve just got to get people vaccinated.”

High unemployment? There’s a reason for that.

According to new data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the highest unemployment rates in July were in blue states.

Despite the flow of federal COVID-19 bailouts for the last year and a half, these states saw significantly higher rates of unemployment than the national rate of 5.4 percent in July.

Nevada topped out the list with a 7.7 rate of unemployment for July and was closely followed by California (7.6 percent), New Mexico (7.6 percent), New York (7.6 percent), Connecticut (7.3 percent), Hawaii (7.3 percent), New Jersey (7.3 percent), Illinois (7.1 percent), and the District of Columbia (6.7 percent). All are Democrat-run. As tyrannical lockdowns are being lifted and businesses start to reopen, Democrat states are seeing some job growth but still have a long road to recovery.

ALBANY — Incoming Gov. Kathy Hochul promised that her administration will be “very transparent” when it comes to releasing documents pertaining to pandemic-related nursing home deaths — after outgoing Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been accused of covering up the true number of COVID-19 deaths in New York’s long term care facilities. 


According to data gathered from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System, as of Aug. 23, 2021, there have been 13,068 deaths, 154,142 hospitalizations, 5,617 cases of anaphylaxis, 4,681 cases of Bell’s Palsy, 1,607 miscarriages, 4,861 cases of myocarditis/pericarditis, 13,812 life-threatening reactions and 17,228 permanently disabled, among other issues. On one hand, it is arguable that this is a pittance given that 360,634,287 doses of Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson/Janssen (J&J) vaccines have been given. On the other hand, a 2011 Harvard study concluded that only 1% of adverse events are reported to the government system.

FACE DIAPERS PROVEN WORTHLESS – AGAIN: The study showed that most common masks, primarily due to problems with fit, filter about 10 per cent of exhaled aerosol droplets.

The remaining aerosols are redirected, mostly out the top of the mask where it fits over the nose, and escape into the ambient air unfiltered.

Study supports widespread use of better masks to curb COVID-19 indoors

A new study is highlighting a need for widespread use of better face masks and the importance of good ventilation to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 indoors.

Engineering researchers at the University of Waterloo performed experiments using a mannequin to simulate a seated person breathing in a large room. The studies showed a significant buildup over time of aerosol droplets – exhaled droplets so tiny they remain suspended and travel through the air – despite the use of common cloth and blue surgical masks.

“There is no question it is beneficial to wear any face covering, both for protection in close proximity and at a distance in a room,” said Serhiy Yarusevych, a professor of mechanical and mechatronics engineering and the leader of the study. “However, there is a very serious difference in the effectiveness of different masks when it comes to controlling aerosols.”

Previous research has found that aerosols dispersed by infected people are a source of transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19, even outside the two-metre social distancing zone widely recommended by public health officials.

The study showed that most common masks, primarily due to problems with fit, filter about 10 per cent of exhaled aerosol droplets. The remaining aerosols are redirected, mostly out the top of the mask where it fits over the nose, and escape into the ambient air unfiltered.

By contrast, higher-quality, more expensive N95 and KN95 masks filtered more than 50 per cent of the exhaled aerosols that can accumulate indoors and spread the COVID-19 virus when inhaled by other people.

Yarusevych, principal investigator in the Fluid Mechanics Research Lab, said the much greater effectiveness of N95 and KN95 masks versus cloth and surgical masks makes a compelling case they should be worn in indoor settings, such as schools and workplaces, as much as possible.

“A lot of this may seem like common sense,” he said. “There is a reason, for instance, that medical practitioners wear N95 masks – they work much better. The novelty here is that we have provided solid numbers and rigorous analysis to support that assumption.”

Experiments also quantified the impact of ventilation systems, which circulate and replace air in rooms, on the accumulation of aerosols. Even modest ventilation rates were found to be as effective as the best masks in reducing the risk of transmission.

Ideally, Yarusevych said, the evidence shows that high-quality masks and proper ventilation should be used in combination to mitigate the threat posed by indoor aerosol accumulation as much as possible.

The study, Experimental investigation of indoor aerosol dispersion and accumulation in the context of COVID-19: Effects of masks and ventilation, appears in the journal Physics of Fluids.

Yarusevych collaborated with Sean Peterson, also a Waterloo professor of mechanical and mechatronics engineering, and engineering PhD students Yash Shah and John Kurelek.



The U.S. drug regulator granted full approval Monday to the Pfizer Inc/BioNTech SE COVID-19 vaccine that earned emergency-use authorization in December, making it the first to secure such Food and Drug Administration validation as health authorities struggle to win over vaccine skeptics.

The FDA approved the two-dose vaccine for use in people over the age of 16. More than 204 million people in the United States have received the vaccine since it was given emergency authorization, based on data from Sunday.

Fraud! Just like her political views.

– charge her with false report!

A pro-vaccination Democrat official who said that teenagers could receive COVID vaccines without parental consent apparently faked a threat she claimed was designed to silence her. It may be yet another example of conservatives being so “violent” that deception has to be used to make them appear so.

Michelle Fiscus, then-medical director of Tennessee’s immunization program, “met with state investigators in July to report … [a] suspicious package mailed to her office containing a silicone dog muzzle,” writes The Washington Post.

Mask hoax proven Again and again

New research reveals that cloth masks filter just 10% of exhaled aerosols, with many people not wearing coverings that fit their face properly.
WATERLOO, Ontario — N95 or KN95 face masks may be the best way to avoid COVID-19 during crowded indoor events. That’s the recommendation from a new study reporting most cloth masks just don’t do the job when it comes to stopping the spread of coronavirus within enclosed spaces.

Researchers from the University of Waterloo simulated a person breathing in a large room with a cloth face mask on. Despite wearing a mask, the study finds a large buildup of aerosol droplets suspended in the air. Besides raising awareness on the vulnerability of certain face masks, these findings also emphasize the need for proper ventilation indoors. More ventilation means less of a chance for potentially viral aerosols to linger around.

“There is no question it is beneficial to wear any face covering, both for protection in close proximity and at a distance in a room,” says study leader Serhiy Yarusevych, a professor of mechanical and mechatronics engineering, in a university release. “However, there is a very serious difference in the effectiveness of different masks when it comes to controlling aerosols.”

Studies continue to show that aerosols exhaled by infected individuals can indeed infect others with COVID-19, even if someone is standing more than six feet away.

Why do most face masks fail to offer adequate protection?
Researchers theorize many people wear masks that don’t fit their face properly. As a result, many cloth and surgical masks only filter about 10 percent of exhaled aerosols. The rest make their way past the mask, most through the top, and spread into the surrounding environment. Conversely, higher-quality, more expensive N95 and KN95 masks filter over 50 percent of all aerosol droplets.

In light of these findings study authors recommend that everyone wear a N95 or KN95 mask if possible whenever indoors in the company of others.

“A lot of this may seem like common sense,” Prof. Yarusevych comments. “There is a reason, for instance, that medical practitioners wear N95 masks – they work much better. The novelty here is that we have provided solid numbers and rigorous analysis to support that assumption.”

It’s also worth mentioning that ventilation tests show even modest ventilation rates provide about the same level of protection as the highest quality masks.

The findings appear in the journal Physics of Fluids.

Mask-wearing mandates for young children in schools offer many positive benefits according to a recent New York Times op-ed claiming masks provide “distinctive opportunities for learning and growth,” improve social and cognitive skills, strengthen self-control and attention, help conquer habits such as nose-picking and nail-biting, and empower children to “practice caring.”


A proof of vaccination mandate in New York City requires certain establishments to make people furnish proof that they have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose in order to enter. This applies to indoor dining at restaurants, indoor movie theaters, indoor gyms, and more.

But in addition to the proof of vaccination requirement, people must also provide a form of identification.


“I got COVID. I am vaccinated, and I got COVID, and it’s bad. It’s weighing on my chest, it’s hard to breathe, one of my kids has it so far, I’m praying that the other ones are OK,” she explained.

“I’m mad. I’m really mad,” Hart said.

“Because we tried, and we took precautions and we cut our exposure by a lot,” she continued, “but we got lazy and I think as a country we got lazy. And I’m really mad that my kids didn’t wear masks at schools. I’m pretty sure that’s where this came from.”

Hart, who is the mother of three boys ages 8, 13, and15, went on to say that her youngest son bragged about wearing his mask every day when he got home from school.

“Scared and sad and disappointed in myself, and some of our leaders, and a lot of people, including myself,” Hart continued.

“I just wish I had done better, so I’m asking you guys, do better,” she concluded. “Protect your families, protect your kids. It’s not over yet.”

WASHington examiner “healthcare-reporter” promotes false statement on vaccines ability to prevent-infection.


“Yet vaccinations among nursing home staff still lag behind the industry target of getting 75% of their healthcare staff the shots, according to tracking from the AARP. Roughly 60% of nursing home staffers are fully vaccinated, leaving residents — even vaccinated ones — vulnerable to infection due to the delta variant of COVID-19.”

A study published in June and led by researchers from Johns Hopkins, for example, showed that desk screens in classrooms were associated with an increased risk of coronavirus infection. In a Massachusetts school district, researchers found that plexiglass dividers with side walls in the main office were impeding air flow. A study looking at schools in Georgia found that desk barriers had little effect on the spread of the coronavirus compared with ventilation improvements and masking.

Before the pandemic, a study published in 2014 found that office cubicle dividers were among the factors that may have contributed to disease transmission during a tuberculosis outbreak in Australia.

British researchers have conducted modeling studies simulating what happens when a person on one side of a barrier — like a customer in a store — exhales particles while speaking or coughing under various ventilation conditions. The screen is more effective when the person coughs, because the larger particles have greater momentum and hit the barrier. But when a person speaks, the screen doesn’t trap the exhaled particles — which just float around it. While the store clerk may avoid an immediate and direct hit, the particles are still in the room, posing a risk to the clerk and others who may inhale the contaminated air.


Democratic Congressman Ritchie Torres unveiled a legislative effort to ban Americans opting to not get vaccinated against COVID-19 from taking domestic and international flights. 

The New York Congressman sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) lobbying the agencies to only allow Americans vaccinated against COVID-19 on domestic and international flights.

He introduced a complementary bill in the House necessitating that “any individual traveling on a flight that departs from or arrives to an airport inside the United States or a territory of the United States is fully vaccinated against COVID–19.” It has since been referred to the Committee on Homeland Security, where he serves as the Vice-Chair.

“The TSA never allows people to enter planes or airports with a weapon, and the delta variant is a weapon,” Torres remarked. “It is a threat to everyone in an airport and everyone on a plane,” he added in defense of the bill.
