The Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus plandemic was planned to achieve a number of nefarious ends as part of the “global reset of humanity.”
First, the plandemic was used to manufacture a “health crisis” when a biological weapon leaked from BSL-4 facility in Wuhan, Red China, before it had been fully weaponized for maximum effect. conflating various existing diseases until the nebulous term “Covid-19” that defies an accurate definition. This is a point that Dr. Francis Boyle made in an interview about a year ago now that was republished in Christian Order and republished with the permission of that journal’s editor, Mr. Rod Pead, in part two of this series, and it is a conclusion that others are continuing to verify even though the Xi Jinping-controlled World Health Organization continues to cover-up the Chicom virus with coats upon coats of whitewash (see The World Health Organization's latest whitewash of the Wuhan laboratory leak):
Jamie Metzl is ageopolitics expert, World Health Organization adviser and senior fellow at the Atlantic Council. January 4, 2021, CBS News interviewed her about the “conspiracy theory” that SARS-CoV-2 was created in a biosecurity level 4 laboratory in Wuhan, China. Metzl believes the COVID-19 pandemic is the result of an accidental leak from that lab.
This, he says, is a logical conclusion based on the facts before us. First, Wuhan is far from the southern part of China where horseshoe bats (the supposed source host) exist.
Second, the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) was known to have performed controversial gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses and, according to U.S. diplomats who had visited the lab in 2018, significant safety shortcomings were apparent.6
Third, SARS-CoV-2’s closest relative (RaTG13) has been traced back to samples collected in 2012 from miners sickened after working in an abandoned mine in Mojiang. There’s no trace of the virus anywhere between 2012 and 2019, until it suddenly caused an outbreak in Wuhan.
Lastly, “We see this massive Chinese cover-up,” Metzl says, “destroying samples, shutting off access to databases, imprisoning journalists [and] silencing scientists.”
On top of that, Metzl points out that scientists working at the WIV have been unable to account for all the viruses in their database, and level 4 biosecurity laboratories around the world have experienced many safety breaches in the past. . . .
While most of the focus has been on the WIV, the U.S. and other Western nations are not without blame. In the video above, “The Next Revolution” host Steve Hilton reviews the origin of COVID-19, linking the outbreak to research around the world.
He starts reviewing research done by the Erasmus Centre in the Netherlands 10 years ago. There, they were able to get an influenza A/H5N1 virus to mutate and become airborne by injecting it into ferrets. This led to an explosion of gain-of-function virus research all around the world. Interestingly, that Dutch study was funded by none other than Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
While the original intent may have been noble — stay a step ahead of nature so we’re not surprised by natural mutations that might threaten the human population — by creating more virulent pathogens, the work itself ends up posing significant risk.
This was why, in 2014, the Obama administration put a moratorium on gain-of-function research after recent biosafety incidents had highlighted the risky nature of such study. The moratorium included pausing gain-of-function research on influenza, MERS and SARS viruses.
However, as noted by Hilton, Fauci has long been a steadfast advocate of this kind of research, and shortly before the moratorium was put into place, he had funded a project to assess the risk of bat coronavirus emergence and the “spillover potential at high-risk human-wildlife interfaces in China.” At the end of that project description, they state:
“Predictive models of host range (i.e. emergence potential) will be tested experimentally using reverse genetics, pseudovirus and receptor binding essays, and virus infection experiments across a range of cell cultures from different species and humanized mice.”
This is precisely the kind of research the Obama administration placed a moratorium on, but Fauci didn’t drop it. Instead, he contracted it out to the EcoHealth Alliance — the group run by Daszak. Daszak himself was the project leader. Over the next six years, EcoHealth Alliance received $3.75 million for projects relating to this investigation. (Serial Passage of the Coronavirus.)
Second, the “health crisis” became a “pandemic” even though what it is called the coronavirus kills only a fraction of infected persons who have no preexisting conditions (co-morbidites).
Third, the “crisis” was engineered by the oligarchs of our new censors and monitors (big tech), the Big Pharma (the pharmaceutical industry), career “health officials (Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx) and statists of the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist “left” to impose tyranny on the masses globally in order to control and manipulate us “useless eaters” by demanding us to obey their every arbitrary decree.
Fourth, this tyrannical rule has vitiated the supervisory role of legislatures and courts, making executives at all levels of government into Soviet-style commissars of oblasts or krais (units of government at the subnational level in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) who have one set of rules for he masses and none at all for themselves.
Fifth, the tyranny of the oligarchs, political and economic elites and the health “experts” has been aided and abetted by the mainslime media to instill fear into the hearts of those who do not fear offending the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Holy Trinity. This fear has been exploited mightily as our tyrants know that most people will do anything to avoid sickness, pain, and death, including giving up their legitimate liberties. People are afraid of what is said to be the “near occasion of the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus while doing nothing at all to avoid the near occasions of sin, including watching the stupid television.
Sixth, our tyrants’ use of fear has further divided those who “trust the experts” from those who use their common sense and reason to recognize a statist scam when they see one. The “experts” and those who follow their ever-changing advice dismiss all objections to the nature of the virus, the efficacy of statist lockdowns, the inflated numbers of those who are said to have died from the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus and the nonexistent “safety” and effectiveness of the various vaccines that contain genetic modifiers and other poisons as “conspiracy theorists.” Even the vaccine makers themselves are boasting about the supposed “benefits” of such genetic modifications that are meant to turn subsequent generations into genetically modifying organisms:
Moderna is pioneering mRNA drugs that are believed to be able to direct the body to produce any protein of interest, including antibodies and other proteins that can create therapeutic activity. Bancel said mRNA is an information molecule.
“It’s like software,” he said.
The company, which has secured enormous investments over the past few years, is inching closer to being a commercial company in developing personalized therapies for a wide range of diseases, including cancer. In order to create those personalized medicines, the Cambridge, Mass.-based company relies on gene sequencing and a partnership with one of the world’s largest companies – Amazon.
In an interview with CNBC’s Jim Cramer during the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference this week, Bancel said the company relies on Amazon Web Services to “compare every letter of DNA” in the sequencing process. Once that is done, the company can deduce what needs to be done to develop personalized medicine, Bancel explained.
Amazon Web Services, the fastest growing division of the company, according to CNBC, provides on-demand cloud computing platforms to companies. Moderna is currently using Amazon Web Services with more than a dozen drug candidates in its pipeline, which means the high-tech platform plays a central role in the company’s drug development program. As CNBC explains, the company is using the powerful cloud-based service to speed up the time it takes a drug candidate to move from the preclinical to the clinical phase. In addition to Moderna, Amazon Web Services is being used by several pharmaceutical companies, including San Diego-based Human Longevity Inc., Regeneron Pharmaceuticals and more.
The reliance on the high-speed program could lead to the company finally becoming a commercial entity 10 years after it was launched. Last week, just ahead of JPM, Bancel pointed to one of the company’s clinical candidates as a potential blockbuster, an experimental treatment for cytomegalovirus (CMV), the most common infectious cause of birth defects in the United States.
Moderna said the analysis following a Phase I trial, which was taken after the third and final vaccination, shows continued boosting of neutralizing antibody titers in patients. The mRNA-based vaccine, mRNA-1647, is designed to protect against CMV infection. Cytomegalovirus is a common pathogen and is the leading infectious cause of birth defects in the United States with approximately 25,000 newborns in the U.S. infected every year. CMV is passed from the mother to her unborn child. Birth defects occur in about 20% of infected babies. The defects can include neurodevelopmental disabilities such as hearing loss, vision impairment, varying degrees of learning disability and decreased muscle strength and coordination. There is no approved vaccine to prevent CMV infection.
In October, the company received Fast Track Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for mRNA-3927, its investigational mRNA therapeutic for propionic acidemia, which is caused by the inability of the body to breakdown certain proteins and fats which leads to the build-up of toxic chemicals. Moderna plans to initiate an open-label, multi-center, dose-escalation Phase I/II study of multiple ascending doses of mRNA-3927 in primarily pediatric patients. (Moderna Parterns with Amazon Web Services to Explore the “Software of Life”.)
Seventh, the fear engendered by the plandemicists is such that many people exhibit palpable signs of apprehension when out of their homes, including wearing masks while walking on sidewalks or even on country roads even though they are in no proximity to any other person. As the manager of one business in Corsicana, Texas, told me a few months ago, “I don’t want to get sick.” Such is the inability of most people in a country shaped by the welter of the ever-mutating errors of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry to accept sickness as the means to make reparation for the sins that they do not realize they have committed or think that are “forgiven” immediately by their concept of a God who has not instituted a true church nor has left us with a true priesthood for the remission of our sins.
Eighth, there is no end of the plandemic in sight as the goal is to keep the masses under a statist lock and key in perpetuity. The original virus, such as it has been, is now mutating, whether by design or not, which means that there will be no end to mask mandates, vaccination campaigns and periodic lockdowns as part of a “global reset” that considers nonconformity to the statist agenda as treasonous and thus worthy of the restriction of legitimate human liberties as a threat to the rule of our fat-cat oligarchs, up to and including the cultural “execution” of those who dissent from the prevailing “dogmatic” orthodoxy imposed by our oligarchical minders.
Ninth, the plandemicists continue to wage a massive disinformation campaign to stoke the embers of fear into the hearts of the masses, many of whom are doing all kinds of somersaults to get their genetic code modified by one or another of the vaccines that were turned out in “warp speed” and produce a wave of deaths almost immediately after their administration.
Tenth, only an infinitesimally small number of people recognize this entire turn of events as a chastisement being visited upon us by our just God, Who will not be mocked and Who has now left His children in the so-called “civilized” world to suffer the consequences of their own sins as well as the consequences of those who care nothing about pleasing Him, making reparation for their sins or about the sanctification and salvation of their immortal souls. This is why so many people are happy to receive vaccinations that they think will be provide them with “protection” from a disease whose effects are survivable in most cases and whose very existence has been mismanaged in a gargantuan way by statists in the United States of America and throughout the rest of the world.
Eleventh, as has been noted in previous commentaries in this series, both the numbers of actual cases of those infected by the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus and the deaths alleged to be caused by it have been inflated. Health officials around the nation went to extraordinary lengths to rely upon various completely unreliable (to the point of being spiked with virus itself) tests to pump up the numbers (and thus to send people into needless quarantines, sometimes repeatedly) while listing many deaths last year as caused by it even in cases of automobile accidents and falls. Now, however, the same health officials are going out of their way to deny and all linkages between the deaths of those who die within a short period of time after receiving one or another of the vaccinations that have been produced as part of what former President Donald John Trump labeled as “Operation Warp Speed.”
Thus, this commentary, rather than to repeat points in preceding nine parts of this series during the course of the last eleven months, is going to focus on the points listed above in order to demonstrate to readers that his whole plandemic is the Vietnam War of our current wave of social engineers, who promise the masses an illusory “light at the end of the tunnel” whose length keeps being extended as there is really nothing but darkness in a tunnel whose ending is actually a brick wall of totalitarianism against which our heads are to be smashed into submission.
A Vaccine That Changes Human Genetic Codes, Sickens and Kills While Offering No Protection
One of the most remarkable developments in the past eleven months since the plan hatched at Event 201 on October 18, 2019, is the extent to which hundreds of millions of people in the United States and elsewhere in the world who live according to their own darkened “lights” and who scoff at the Ten Commandments and/or any remote concept of objective moral truth even on the natural level have been assiduous in their docile obedience to each of the ever-changing “recommendations” and executive mandates that have been issued by elected officials and nonelected government minions to “protect” them. Individual citizens have learned how to become good commissars by reporting on their neighbors/friends/relatives who are not obeying one or more of our civil minders’ arbitrary decrees. This is, if you think about, a perversion of two of the Spiritual Works of Mercy that call upon us to admonish the sinner and to instruct the ignorant.
That is, the very people who chafe at any mention of how their own sins offend God and hurt their own souls, which are made in His image and likeness and have been redeemed by the shedding of every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ even though they may not know or accept this as being true, are among the first to point fingers at “malefactors” who “dare” to disobey the various edicts that have been promulgated to restrict legitimate human liberties and thus to accustom the unwashed masses into accepting a “new normal” wherein their livelihoods, ability to travel and possibly even to shop for groceries is made contingent upon accepting the plandemic narrative without question, up to and including receiving a vaccination that changes one’s genetic code and is killing an untold number of people worldwide. We are eyewitnesses to a systematic Communist takeover of supposedly “free” nations that have never been that “free” as has been thought as any nation that is “free” of Christ the King and His Holy Church is anything other than enslaved to the devil, who has used the licentious of the West as a means to make everyone a ward of the civil state.
The following report indicates the extent of some of the problems caused by the various vaccines that keep proving themselves incapable of protecting against the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus.
- The COVID-19 vaccine really isn’t a vaccine in the medical definition of a vaccine. It’s more accurately an experimental gene therapy that could prematurely kill large amounts of the population and disable exponentially more
- Since mRNA normally rapidly degrades, it must be complexed with lipids or polymers. COVID-19 vaccines use PEGylated lipid nanoparticles, and PEG is known to cause anaphylaxis
- Free mRNA can signal danger to your immune system and drive inflammatory diseases. As such, injecting synthetic thermostable mRNA (mRNA that is resistant to breaking down) is highly problematic as it can fuel chronic, long-term inflammation
- Many commonly reported side effects from the COVID-19 gene therapy “vaccines” appear to be caused by brain inflammation
- Anyone with an inflammatory disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson's disease or chronic Lyme and those with acquired immune deficiency/dysfunction from any microbial pathogen, brain trauma or environmental toxin are at high risk of dying from COVID-19 mRNA vaccines
In April 2020, I interviewed Judy Mikovits, Ph.D., about the potential role played by human gammaretroviruses in COVID-19. Mikovits is a molecular biologist1 and researcher, and was the founding research director of the Whittemore Peterson Institute in Nevada.
Her book, “Plague of Corruption,” ended up being a No. 1 best seller on the lists of The New York Times, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal in 2020. Her new book, “Ending Plague: A Scholar’s Obligation in an Age of Corruption,” will hopefully do just as well. It’s available for preorder on Amazon.
She may be one of the most censored researchers on the planet at this point, thanks in no small part to her participation in the documentary “Plandemic,” which went viral in a big way (plandemicseries.com).
Case in point: YouTube suspended our account for one week as soon as we uploaded today’s interview — even though the video was UNLISTED and not available for public viewing yet. Even worse, Mikovits’ third and most recent book, “The Case Against Masks: Ten Reasons Why Mask Use Should Be Limited,” is so heavily censored, no one can buy it.
“I don't even have a copy,” she says. “I'm sitting here with two copies of the other books but I can't even buy it. What the book sellers did, like Amazon, is they bought them all up from Skyhorse, the publisher, and now they won't ship them out of the warehouse.”
Clearly, Mikovits is considered a serious threat to the technocratic status quo, and once you hear what she has to say about COVID-19 vaccines — which as you’ll see is a complete misnomer — you may start to understand why.
COVID-19 Vaccines Aren’t Real Vaccines
The COVID-19 vaccine really isn’t a vaccine in the medical definition of a vaccine. It does not improve your immune response to the infection, nor does not limit you from getting the infection. It’s really an experimental gene therapy that could prematurely kill large amounts of the population and disable exponentially more.
“I'm just beside myself with anger over this synthetic gene therapy, this chemical poison, and what they're doing worldwide,” Mikovits says. “We're already seeing deaths from this shot. It's illegal. It shouldn't be done. It should be stopped right now. It should have never been allowed to happen, yet we see it being forced on the most vulnerable populations.”
Indeed, news and social media reports suggest recipients are starting to drop like flies. Many die of unknown causes within days, sometimes hours of getting the first or second shot.
Baseball legend Hank Aaron passed away two weeks after receiving the vaccine, yet this was not ever mentioned in his New York Times obituary. Surely, had he tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, he would have been declared a COVID-19 fatality, whether the virus actually had anything to do with it or not.
But when it comes to the vaccine, even eyebrow-raising timing is dismissed as coincidental and irrelevant. Now all of a sudden, old people dying shortly after vaccination are shrugged off with the excuse that they’re old and could have died any day anyway. Old people dying with SARS-CoV-2, however, must be stopped at any cost. Funny how that works.
Interestingly, one example is the 58-year-old Florida doctor who recently got the COVID-19 vaccine and died from sudden onset of ITP two weeks later. Dr. Jerry L. Spivak, an expert on blood disorders at Johns Hopkins University, told The New York Times “it is a medical certainty” that Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine caused the man’s death.4,5 Pfizer, of course, denies any connection.
Genetic Alterations May Last for Life
So, just how long will the synthetic RNA in COVID-19 vaccines be maintained within your body, causing your cells to produce this aberrant protein? Mikovits believes it will escape degradation for months, years, maybe even for life in some cases.
All of this is eerily reminiscent of previous attempts to create a coronavirus vaccine, all of which failed due to the vaccines causing paradoxical immune reactions, or antibody-dependent immune enhancement. While the animals appeared to have antibodies against the virus, and should theoretically have been protected, when they were exposed to wild coronavirus, they got severely ill and most died.
Such failures may be why so many vaccine makers decided to use mRNA rather than following conventional vaccine development strategies, but the end result is likely going to be the same or worse.
“I have a 41-year-old daughter-in-law with a very aggressive colon cancer. We're seeing an explosion of chronic disease and these patients are not being discouraged from getting the vaccine. In fact, they're being scared by physicians into getting it.
How do we wake people up? Is it going to take millions of Americans and people worldwide dying? Will Hank Aaron dying help the Black community? … We know the mechanisms. We know that Blacks and Hispanics can't degrade RNA viruses as rapidly as Caucasians. We know that from studies all the way back to MMR. The MMR vaccine is associated with ITP. It says it right there on the package insert.
If you have a single nucleotide polymorphism in one of those RNases called RNase-L, you are more likely to get aggressive breast cancers, prostate cancers and other cancers from an XMRV infection (So why inject mRNA of syncytin, a gamma retrovirus envelope?).”
Aside from the chronic diseases listed earlier, others who are at high risk from these COVID-19 gene therapies include those who have gotten seasonal influenza vaccines, Blacks and Hispanics. Blacks and Hispanics are particularly at risk for antibody-dependent immune enhancement, in particular, due to genetics. Tragically, these vaccines are given to the most susceptible under the guise of racial and social justice.
“Johns Hopkins laid out that plan a few months ago to vaccinate ethnic minorities and the mentally challenged first. If your brain is already on fire, if you already have a neural inflammatory disease, why in the world would you inject this neural inflammatory toxin? You're killing the people who are the most susceptible.”
Women of childbearing age may also be at risk for infertility, as syncytin (the gammaretrovirus envelope encoded in the human genome the expression of which can be dysregulated by the synthetic syncytin RNA in the vaccine) is required for proper fusion of the placenta in the uterus and implantation of the egg. Indeed, the World Health Organization is now saying pregnant women should not get the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines due to reports of late-term miscarriages.6 (Covid-19 Vaccine is Gene Therapy, Not a Vaccine.)
Line up for the vaccination, anyone?
As many readers may know by now, twenty-three people died in Norway within a very short space of time after being injected with Pfizer/BioNTech vaccination:
Twenty-three people died in Norway within days of receiving their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, with 13 of those deaths — all nursing home patients — apparently related to the side effects of the shots, health officials said.
Common reactions to the vaccine, including fever and nausea, “may have contributed to a fatal outcome in some frail patients,” Sigurd Hortemo, chief physician at the Norwegian Medicines Agency, said in a Friday statement.
All 13 were nursing home patients and at least 80 years old. While officials aren’t expressing serious concern, they are adjusting their guidance on who should receive the vaccine.
The news comes just over a week after officials reported the deaths of just two nursing home residents after they received the Pfizer jab.
More than 30,000 people in Norway have received the first shot of the Pfizer or Moderna coronavirus vaccine in the Scandinavian country since late last month, according to official figures.
“We are not alarmed by this,” Steinar Madsen, medical director with the agency, told Norwegian broadcaster NRK. “It is quite clear that these vaccines have very little risk, with a small exception for the frailest patients.”
“Doctors must now carefully consider who should be vaccinated,” he added. “Those who are very frail and at the very end of life can be vaccinated after an individual assessment.”
The agency reported Thursday that a total of 29 people had suffered side effects, including the 13 people who died.
Twenty-one women and eight men experienced side effects, officials said.
Besides those who died, nine had serious side effects — including allergic reactions, strong discomfort and severe fever — while seven had less serious ones, including severe pain at the injection site.
In total, more than 57,000 cases and 500 coronavirus-related deaths have been reported in Norway, according to Johns Hopkins University.
Health officials noted that around 400 people die each week in the nursing home population.
A Pfizer rep said the pharmaceutical giant is “aware of reported deaths” following the administration of the vaccine in Norway and is working with the Norwegian Medicines Agency “to gather all the relevant information.”
“Norwegian authorities have prioritized the immunization of residents in nursing homes, most of whom are very elderly with underlying medical conditions and some which are terminally ill,” a spokeswoman said in a statement. “[The Norwegian Medicine Agency confirms] the number of incidents so far is not alarming, and in line with expectations.”
“All reported deaths will be thoroughly evaluated by [the agency] to determine if these incidents are related to the vaccine,” she added. “The Norwegian government will also consider adjusting their vaccination instructions to take the patients’ health into more consideration.” (Twenty-three Die in Norway After Receiving Pfizer Vaccine.)
No cause for alarm?
The staff at Robert Francis Kennedy, Jr.’s Children Health Defense organization has compiled some gruesome statistics about the vaccinations and the propaganda campaigns being waged in their behalf:
As of Jan. 22, 329 deaths — a subset of 9,845 total adverse events — had been reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) following COVID-19 vaccinations. VAERS is the primary mechanism for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S. Reports submitted to VAERS require further investigation before confirmation can be made that an adverse event was linked to a vaccine.
The reports, filed on the VAERS website between Dec. 14, 2020 and Jan. 22, describe outcomes ranging from “foaming at the mouth” to “massive heart attacks” to “did not recover.”
According to the Washington Post, as of Jan. 29, 22 million people in the U.S. had received one or both doses of a COVID vaccine. So far, only the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have been granted Emergency Use Authorization in the U.S. by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). By the FDA’s own definition, the vaccines are still considered experimental until fully licensed.
Even with the updated injury numbers released today, the CDC said Thursday that safety data shows “everything is going well.” According to USA TODAY:
“Early safety data from the first month of COVID-19 vaccination finds the shots are as safe as the studies suggested they’d be.
“Everyone who experienced an allergic response has been treated successfully, and no other serious problems have turned up among the first 22 million people vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
According to the VAERS data, of the 329 reported deaths, 285 were from the U.S., and 44 were from other countries. The average age of those who died was 76.5.
States reporting the most deaths were: California (22), Florida (16), Ohio (18), New York (15) and KY (13). Most of the reports were from, or filed on behalf of people who had received only the first dose. About half of the people reporting had the Pfizer vaccine, the other half Moderna.
The Moderna vaccine lot numbers associated with the highest number of deaths were: 025L20A (13 deaths), 037K20A (11 deaths) and 011J2A (10 deaths). For Pfizer, the lot numbers were: EK5730 (10 deaths), EJ1685 (11 deaths), EL0140 (15 deaths), EK 9231 (12 deaths) and EL1284 (11 deaths).
Several deaths and multiple severe allergic reactions are under investigation in the U.S. and Europe.
Anyone suffering from a serious injury will have little legal recourse because they will be directed to the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program which has rejected 90% of vaccine-injury claims over the past decade.
On Jan. 3, Miami obstetrician Dr. Gregory Michael died after he suffered a hemorrhagic stroke. Michael died about two weeks after receiving Pfizer-BioNtech’s COVID vaccine. Although he became ill just three days after he got the shot, Pfizer said it didn’t think there was any direct connection to the vaccine. The New York Times quoted Dr. Jerry Spivak, a blood disorder expert at Johns Hopkins University, saying “I think it’s a medical certainty that the vaccine was related.”
Officials in Orange County, California, are investigating the death of a 60-year-old healthcare worker who died Jan. 9, four days after receiving his second injection of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine. Tim Zook, an x-ray technologist at South Coast Global Medical Center in Santa Ana, was hospitalized on Jan. 5, several hours after being vaccinated. Zook’s wife, Rochelle Zook, told the Orange County Register that her husband’s health rapidly deteriorated over the next few days. She said she didn’t blame any pharmaceutical company and that people should still “take the vaccine — but the officials need to do more research. We need to know the cause.”
Data about deaths following receipt of the experimental Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine are also emerging from Israel, Norway, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland. Norway launched an investigation into the vaccines after the Norwegian Medicines Agency received reports of 33 suspected adverse drug reactions with fatal outcomes following administration of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. Pharma and federal agencies attributed the majority of these cases to “coincidence.”
“Coincidence is turning out to be quite lethal to COVID vaccine recipients,” said Children’s Health Defense (CHD) Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. “If the clinical trials are good predictors, the rate of coincidence is likely to increase dramatically after the second shot.”
While the VAERS database numbers are sobering, according to a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services study, the actual number of adverse events is likely significantly higher. VAERS is a passive surveillance system that relies on the willingness of individuals and professionals to submit reports voluntarily.
In December, CHD and Kennedy wrote to former FDA director, Dr. David Kessler, co-chair of the COVID-19 Advisory Board and President Biden’s version of Operation Warp Speed. Kennedy told Kessler that VAERS has been an abject failure, with fewer than 1% of adverse events ever reported.
A critic familiar with VAERS’ shortcomings bluntly condemned VAERS in The BMJ as “nothing more than window dressing, and a part of U.S. authorities’ systematic effort to reassure/deceive us about vaccine safety.”
CHD is calling for complete transparency. The children’s health organization is asking Kessler and the federal government to release all of the data from the clinical trials and suspend COVID-19 vaccine use in any group not adequately represented in the clinical trials, including the elderly, frail and anyone with comorbidities.
CHD is also asking for full transparency in post-marketing data that reports all health outcomes, including new diagnoses of autoimmune disorders, adverse events and deaths from COVID vaccines. (329 Deaths, 9516 Other Injuries Reporteed Following Covid-19 Vaccine, Reports the United States Centers for Disease Control.)
Mind you, the report above about the reported deaths after receiving one or another of the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus was based upon statistics provided by the United States Centers for Disease Control. The actual number of these deaths are another matter, and a whistleblower who works in a nursing home revealed recently that patients are “dropping like flies” in nursing homes after receiving vaccinations that are supposed to protect them from contracting the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus.
James (he gives his last name in the video) is a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant), and he recorded this video as a whistleblower because he could not keep silent any longer.
James reports that in 2020 very few residents in the nursing home where he works got sick with COVID, and none of them died during the entire year of 2020.
However, shortly after administering the Pfizer experimental mRNA injections, 14 died within two weeks, and he reports that many others are near death.
The video is long (47 minutes), and it is clear that James is suffering from emotional stress, and he admits that he has nothing to gain from going public, and that he will probably lose his job for doing so.
But he makes it very clear that these were patients he knew and cared for (he is also a “lay pastor”), and that after being injected with the mRNA shot, residents who used to walk on their own can no longer walk. Residents who used to carry on an intelligent conversation with him could no longer talk.
And now they are dying. “They’re dropping like flies.”
His superiors are explaining the deaths as being caused by a COVID19 “super-spreader.”
However, the residents who refused to take the injections, are not sick, according to James.
James makes it very clear that as a Christian, he cannot live with his conscience anymore, and that he can no longer remain silent.
He is not anti-vaccine, but just sharing what he knows is true, regarding the people he has cared for in his profession for over 10 years now.
This is a very clear pattern now. Inject the elderly with the mRNA injections, then blame their illnesses and deaths on the COVID virus.
The only reason Big Pharma and their sponsored corporate media are getting away with this, is because more healthcare workers like James are not coming forward to speak up for the helpless.
Even many in the Alternative Media are guilty for not covering this genocide against our seniors, as James states, because people are more concerned with Donald Trump and Joe Biden political news, while people’s grandmother, grandfather, and others are being killed by these injections.
James calls upon other CNAs, nurses, and family members to go public and tell the world what is going on with these experimental mRNA COVID injections.
How many more lives need to be lost before we say something?
If you know what is happening, but are not speaking out, then you are part of the problem.
And shame on you in the Alternative Media who are more concerned about which tyrant should be president than you are about covering the greatest crime of genocide this country has ever seen. (Nursing Home Whistleblower Says Seniors are Dropping Like Flies after Covid Injections Speak Out.)
Even though the author of the article above was indeed quite correct to refer to about the sideshow of politics, the greatest ongoing genocide that the United States of America has ever seen is the daily slaughter of innocent preborn children in their mothers’ wombs by means of chemical and surgical abortion, and the second greatest—and almost entirely unnoticed—genocide that is denied by even many supposedly “pro-life” Catholics, including many Catholics who understand that the See of Peter has been vacant since the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958, is the daily slaughter of untold numbers of people by means of the medical industry’s manufactured, profit-making myth of “brain death” and its companion, the vivisection of the “brain dead” so that their vital bodily organs can be transplanted, “palliative care”/hospice, and the starvation and dehydration of disabled human beings. What is happening now is intended to reduce the world’s population as part of the “global reset of humanity,” but the numbers of those who have been killed thus far do not approach the sixty-three million babies killed surgically and the hundreds upon hundreds of babies killed chemically, and we will only know in eternity the numbers of those, including who have received so-called “comfort care” because of the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus, killed by the monsters in white coats under the guise of “medical care.”
Nonetheless, however, this is not in any way to minimize the diabolical nature of the warped “warp speed” vaccinations, only to point out that the ongoing slaughter of the innocent by the means summarized above has emboldened the plademicists to treat us all as so many guinea pigs for their schemes of biological and social engineering.
Indeed, a man in Placer County, California, died within hours of being vaccinated for “protection” against the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus:
A California resident who was vaccinated against COVID-19 died just hours later — and authorities are trying to find out why.
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office announced the death and the investigation Saturday in a Facebook post, but gave few details.
The county, which is in the greater Sacramento area, was “recently notified” of the person’s death, the police said.
The person had tested positive for coronavirus in December and had been vaccinated just hours before their Jan. 21 death.
There was no indication which vaccine the person had been given.
“There are multiple local, state, and federal agencies actively investigating this case; any reports surrounding the cause of death are premature, pending the outcome of the investigation. Our thoughts are with the family of the deceased,” the sheriff’s office wrote.
An autopsy would be done Monday, the sheriff’s office told CBS’ Sacramento affiliate. (Californian Dies Hours After Getting the Covid-19 Vaccination, Prompting Probe.)
More recently, such as today, Monday, February 8, 2021, the Feast of Saint John of Matha, a man in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, New York, died twenty-five minutes after being vaccinated for the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronaviruus twenty-five minutes after receiving it at the Jacob K. Javits Center on the west side of Manhttan. You read that right: twenty-five mintues from vaccination to death:
A man in his seventies died in Manhattan, N.Y., on Sunday shortly after he received a COVID-19 vaccine, according to the state health commissioner.
The unnamed elderly patient collapsed as he was leaving the Javits Center vaccination site, according to Dr. Howard Zucker, New York State health commissioner.
Though security and first responders were by the man's side in a matter of seconds, said Zucker, the man died soon after in the hospital.
"The incident occurred approximately 25 minutes after he was vaccinated, and following the required 15 minute observation period where he exhibited no adverse reactions or any distress," reads an emailed statement sent to Fox News. "Initial indications are that the man did not have any allergic reaction to the vaccine."
It was not immediately clear which vaccine the man received.
Zucker reiterated that the recently approved vaccines are safe, which is also the larger consensus held among public health experts. The health commissioner said vaccines, mask use and social distancing will help to ultimately conquer the pandemic.
"I encourage all eligible New Yorkers to get vaccinated," he said. (New York Man Gets Covid-19 Vaccine and Dies Soon After.)
These deaths are not “accidental.”
Twenty-five miles from vaccination to death.
Yet it is that Dr. Howard Zucker, who still has his job under Governor Andrew Mark Cuomo even after the nursing home massacre, to be discussed later in this commentary, he helped to engineer, wants us to believe that the vaccines are “safe.” Howard Zucker wants us to believe the “consensus” of the “experts” and not to believe that plain evidence that is unfolding before us. What an arrogant disregard for human life and for all notion of common sense and truth.
Although those of us who said that the vaccines would cause the deaths and injuries that have occurred have been dismissed as “conspiracy theorists,” the reports of deaths and injuries are becoming so commonplace as to make it impossible for the plandemicists and Big Pharma to hide pejoratives in a pathetic hide to hide their diabolical wrongdoing.
Dr. Meryl Nass, who practices medicine in the State of Maine, about reports she has been receiving about allergic reactions to the vaccine in her agency:
People have asked why I was not blogging about the Covid vaccines. To be honest, I felt there was not enough information for me to be decisive, and I was waiting for more information to become available.
However, someone called me this morning and told me about a lot of allergic reactions, including one anaphylactic reaction, at a local hospital after 30 doses were given. Staff were instructed to keep this quiet.
Today I watched a short Ben Swann video about the vaccines, in which he read the "Declination form" to be signed by EMTs in Maine who refuse the vaccine. It contained false and misleading statements, and I realized I should no longer delay discussing what I know about the vaccines.
1. Both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are made from messenger RNA and lipid nanoparticles containing polyethylene glycol (PEG).
a. Messenger RNA (or any RNA) can potentially be converted to DNA in the presence of reverse transcriptase. That DNA potentially, or bits of it, could become linked to your native DNA. While I have no idea how likely this is, I began to take the possibility seriously only after two members of FDA's advisory committee (the VRBPAC) asked about it during their meeting to approve the Pfizer vaccine on December 10. (I watched the entire meeting and took copious notes.) Virologists tell us that much of our DNA is, in fact, originally viral DNA that found its way into ours.
I now consider the potential for vaccine RNA to be converted to DNA and permanently inserted in my DNA a remote possibility--but one that I would like proven wrong before being vaccinated.
b. 70% of Americans have pre-existing antibodies to PEG. FDA suspects that these PEG antibodies may be the cause of anaphylaxis post vaccination. The UK recommends against people with severe allergic conditions receiving the mRNA vaccines. The CDC, however, recommends people receive it regardless of their allergy history, only asking that those with severe allergies wait an additional 15 minutes (total of 30 minutes) in the clinic in case they need to be resuscitated. Anaphylaxis is occurring at about one in 45,000 doses, or 17 times the rate CDC has determined it occurs after other vaccines (1.3 episodes per million vaccinations). Therefore, getting the shot in a drugstore or anywhere that trained physicians are not close by to perform a resuscitation seems like a bad idea. According to the American College of Allergy, "The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine should be administered in a health care setting where anaphylaxis can be treated." California has temporarily halted use of a lot of Moderna's vaccine due to a high rate of anaphylaxis.
2. No vaccines made from messenger RNA nor this type of lipid nanoparticles have ever been used in humans. We have no idea about their long-term side effects. The clinical trials followed subjects for only 2 months after 2 doses of vaccine at the time the vaccines were authorized for use.
3. Neither the Moderna nor the Pfizer trial enrolled many frail elderly subjects. Since both vaccines entered general use less than one month ago, we have heard tales of nursing home residents catching Covid or dying in higher numbers after receiving the vaccines. But we do not know if this is a random event or a reaction to vaccination, since reliable data are not yet available. The elderly often fail to mount an immune response to a vaccine; if this is the case, they should not receive the vaccine, because they will be subject to the side effects without the benefit.
UPDATE: Norway has recorded 23 deaths after the vaccinations. Thirteen have been investigated, autopsied and occurred in the frail elderly. Norway has now decided to recommend the obvious: '“If you are very frail, you should probably not be vaccinated,” Steinar Madsen at the Norwegian Medicines Agency said at a webinar on corona vaccine for journalists on Thursday."
On Jan 15 from Bloomberg, "Norway said Covid-19 vaccines may be too risky for the very old and terminally ill, the most cautious statement yet from a European health authority as countries assess the real-world side effects of the first shots to gain approval."
4. Public health officials have said over and over that they do not know if the vaccines prevent spread. Pfizer's lead representative to the VRBPAC meeting, Kathrin Jansen, PhD, said that Pfizer did not test human subjects to see if those vaccinated could get and spread the infection. But Jansen admitted that Pfizer DID test primates--and found that vaccinated monkeys did get Covid infections despite being vaccinated. Their duration of infection was shorter than in the unvaccinated monkeys. (You can watch Dr. Jansen first claim that primates did not get infection...in the lung... but then admit they did get infections, of shorter duration than unvaccinated primates-- at 7 hours 30 minutes into the meeting. By the way, hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin do exactly the same thing--reduce duration of viral carriage--as shown in a new review article by Didier Raoult.)
5. Are the data from the Pfizer and Moderna clinical trials reliable, especially the claim that both yield 95% efficacy?
a. Members of the VRBPAC advisory committee wanted more information. Two of them asked to be given the results between November 14 (the date the data collection ended) and December 10 (the date of the meeting). Separately, at two different times, both FDA and Pfizer refused to provide this to the committee.
b. There were relatively few Covid-19 cases in Pfizer's trial (under 200) despite 40,000 enrollees. Peter Doshi, blogging for the British Medical journal, noted that 20x as many subjects had Covid-like symptoms as those who were diagnosed positive using PCR tests, but the much larger group had negative PCR tests. We now know there are large numbers of false positives and negatives with PCR tests. Cycle threshold information was not supplied. No sequencing was done to assure that PCR positive individuals actually had Covid. I don't trust these data.
c. Both Moderna and Pfizer provided rudimentary information to the FDA to apply for Emergency Use Authorizations--much less than is required to issue a vaccine license, according to US law...despite what Drs. Stephen Hahn and Peter Marks at FDA may have claimed to sooth the public.
d. FDA made the incomprehensible decision to NOT perform inspections of the manufacturing facilities of the Covid vaccine manufacturers. What did FDA not want to find? FDA misled its advisory committee by claiming to have reviewed all the manufacturing paperwork supplied to it. That is a far cry from inspecting the facility.
6. No one knows how long immunity lasts, if in fact the vaccines do provide some degree of immunity. (Should it be called immunity if you can still catch and spread the virus?) For every known vaccine, the immunity it provides is LESS robust and long-lasting than the immunity obtained from having had the infection. People who have had Covid really have no business getting vaccinated--they get all the risk and none of the benefit. (It is said that Israelis who had Covid are not being vaccinated.) (Maine Emergency Medical Technicians Being False and Misleading Information.)
Furthermore, a Florida physician died sixteen days after receiving the Pfizer/BionNTech vaccine:
Dr. Gregory Michael, an obstetrician in private practice at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, received a first dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech experimental mRNA COVID-19 vaccine on December 18, 2020 and died 16 days later of a cerebral hemorrhage (stroke).
Within three days of taking the shot, he developed symptoms of a severe autoimmune bleeding disorder, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), often referred to as immune thrombocytopenia.2 According to his wife, the 56-year old OB/GYN physician was healthy when he received the COVID-19 vaccine and began exhibiting symptoms of bleeding under the skin within 72 hours.
He was hospitalized in the intensive care unit but none of the treatments were able to stop the internal bleeding.3 The case is being investigated by the Miami-Dade County medical examiner, which is working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Florida Department of Health.4
According to the Miami Herald, as of January 7, 2021, a Pfizer official said Michael died of a “highly unusual clinical case of severe thrombocytopenia, a condition that decreases the body’s ability to clot blood and stop internal bleeding.”
The Pfizer spokesman added, “We are actively investigating this case but we don’t believe at this time that there is any direct connection to the vaccine.”5 A CBS report quoted the Pfizer spokesman as saying:6
“There have been no related safety signals identified in our clinical trials, the post-marketing experience thus far or with the mRNA vaccine platform. To date millions of people have been vaccinated and we are closely monitoring all adverse events in individuals receiving our vaccine.
A CBS report quoted Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, as saying, “The known and potential benefits of the current COVID-19 vaccines outweigh the known and potential risks of getting COVID-19. That doesn’t mean, however, that we couldn’t see potential serious health events in the future.”
Reportedly, CDC officials told reporters they had not seen any serious reactions beyond 29 cases of severe allergic reactions — or about 11 cases of anaphylaxis per 1 million doses of COVID-19 vaccinations administered.8. . . . . drug-induced ITP found that around 45% of the cases were post-vaccinal.”
FDA: Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Trial Had ITP Case
Pfizer did not report a case of ITP occurring in clinical trials of its experimental COVID-19 mRNA vaccine, which was the vaccine that Michael received.35
However, in a briefing document prepared for the December 17, 2020, Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee meeting, where members of the committee voted on granting Moderna an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to distribute its mRNA COVID-19 vaccine in the U.S., the FDA did note a case of ITP in a 72-year-old clinical trial participant who was hospitalized with thrombocytopenia and obstructive kidney stone disease after receiving the experimental vaccine and died of multiorgan failure.
In discussing deaths that occurred in the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials, the FDA stated:36
“One case was a 72-year-old vaccine recipient with Crohn’s disease and short bowel syndrome who was hospitalized for thrombocytopenia and acute kidney failure due to obstructive nephrolithiasis [kidney stone] 40 days after dose 2 and developed complications resulting in multiorgan failure and death.” (Obsterician Dies After Getting Covid-10 Vaccine.)
Moreover, the vaccines that allegedly provide protection at the China/Chinese/Wuhan/Covid19/Coronavirus are not preventing people from contracting the virus or its various strains:
Molly Rose Tarpey, the communications director for Rep. Stephen Lynch, told Fox News on Saturday that the lawmaker received the second jab and tested negative for COVID-19 before attending President Biden's inauguration in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 20.
On Friday, Lynch, D-Mass., received a positive test result for coronavirus after a staff member in his Boston office also contracted the virus.
Tarpey told Fox News that Lynch is asymptomatic and "feels fine," but is self-quarantining and will vote by proxy in Congress in the upcoming week.
Lynch is the second member of the state’s congressional delegation to test positive in as many days. On Thursday, Democratic Rep. Lori Trahan announced she had tested positive after repeatedly testing negative.
Fox News reached out to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Saturday for information on how many people might have received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine and later tested positive. (Massachusetts Congressman Tests Positive for Coronavirus after Second Vaccination Dose.)
Dr. Paul A. Byrne summarized the medical and moral problems with the vaccinations for the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus as follows:
Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are not FDA approved but have been released under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). These are novel vaccines that use messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA), which is a molecular portion of the virus’ total genetic information. The clinical trials had followed recipients for 2 months after 2 doses. Long-term side effects are unknown. Neither mRNA nor the lipid nanoparticles have been tested in humans.
Vaccines commonly use a weakened or killed virus or part of the virus toxin to inject. This triggers the person’s immune system to make antibodies that would recognize and neutralize an infecting virus. A mRNA vaccine works differently because laboratory-made genetic material coding for a part of the virus (spike protein) is injected. It first relies on the recipient’s cells to read this genetic code and make more of the foreign protein molecule for the spike protein. Then it relies on the immune system to make antibodies to this part of the virus. These antibodies are presumed to inactivate the foreign virus and not attack the person’s own cells.
DNA and RNA
DNA and RNA are molecules of genetic information that make a person biochemically unique. DNA is composed of double-stranded nucleic acids; RNA is composed of only one strand of nucleic acids. The genetic information in the RNA is read by structures in the cell called ribosomes, resulting in the production of proteins needed by the cell.
A virus has genetic information as DNA or RNA but needs host cells to “read” this information to replicate (i.e., make more of itself). Sars-CoV-2 virus has mRNA that codes for its spike protein. It enables the virus to enter the human cells. The mRNA vaccines work by getting the person’s own cells to read this foreign mRNA and then to have the person’s cells make more copies of the foreign spike protein. This will allegedly trigger an immune response in the person to make antibodies and T cells (killer white blood cells) that will target spike proteins and thus prevent viral entry into the human cells.
The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines use genetically engineered foreign mRNA sequences that code for the viral spike protein. They rely on ribosomes, which (as noted) are structures in the cell that read the mRNA code and make protein molecules. In the case of these mRNA Covid vaccines, the ribosomes make the foreign spike protein which would not naturally occur.
There are ribosomes in several places inside the cell. Ribosomes are both inside and outside the cell nucleus, and produced in the mitochondria (the energy producing structures of the cell).
Many do not understand that it is incorrect to say that the human genome is made up only of DNA in the cell nucleus. The human genome includes both the DNA in the nucleus and the DNA in the mitochondria outside the nucleus. DNA are the blueprints for making protein molecules. mRNA is akin to work orders for the ribosomes. Ribosomes are akin to machines that fabricate the final protein products.
It is in mitochondrial produced ribosomes in the cytoplasm where the vaccine-delivered foreign messenger-RNA makes the foreign spike protein. According to Biochemist/Biologist Dianne Irving, Ph.D. foreign m-RNA could also be read by ribosomes located outside and inside the cell nucleus and the foreign protein could also thus enter the cell nucleus.
Dr. Irving explains that while it may be correct to say that the foreign mRNA does not change the DNA structure inside the nucleus, or the DNA structure of the mitochondrial DNA, it does change the functioning of the mitochondrial-bound ribosomes and thus the functioning of the mitochondrial DNA. Mitochondrial DNA is part of the human genome. Therefore, foreign messenger-RNA causes a change in function of mitochondrial-bound ribosomes, and thus in mitochondrial DNA function. This change in function of the mitochondrial DNA is to produce a foreign protein that it would never make naturally. This change in function of the mitochondrial ribosomes can affect all cells in the body including those that can be passed down through the egg (oocyte) and sperm to next generations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_genome (Accessed 1-28-21) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK21134/ (Accessed 1-28-21)
RISKS and BENEFITS
The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 and Moderna vaccines are made from messenger RNA, tiny lipid nanoparticles, and polyethylene glycol (PEG). PEG is a stabilizing component of the vaccine. Anaphylaxis is rare but some people are allergic to PEG and could have a life-threatening reaction needing immediate life-support treatment. Patients who are allergic to PEG should not get the vaccine. Since a life-threatening reaction, even though rare, may occur without warning, receiving the vaccine in a health care facility with life-support available is desirable, as is being observed for 15-30 minutes after the injection.
In 2016 scientists from the University of North Carolina at Chapel hill advised the potential importance of screening patients for PEG antibodies before receiving therapeutics with PEG, “The widespread prevalence of pre-existing anti-PEG Ab [antibodies], coupled with high Ab [antibody] levels in a subset of the population, underscores the potential importance of screening patients for anti-PEG Ab [antibody] levels prior to administration of therapeutics containing PEG.” https://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/acs.analchem.6b03437 (Accessed 1-23-21)
Vaccination reactions can occur without prior history. The US CDC reported that of the six persons with “severe allergic reaction” out of >250,000 vaccinations, only one had a “history of vaccination reactions.” The American College of Allergy states, “The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine should be administered in a health care setting where anaphylaxis can be treated." https://college.acaai.org/acaai-guidance-on-risk-of-allergic-reactions-to-pfizer-biontech-COVID-19-vaccine/ (Accessed 1-20-21)
Norway reported 23 deaths after vaccinations; thirteen have been investigated; these were old and frail persons. Subsequently, Norway recommends, “If you are very frail, you should probably not be vaccinated.”
The public may think that the vaccine will prevent spread of the virus, but public health experts have repeatedly said that is unknown. Therefore, the public is still expected to use masks, social distance, and limit contacts. Pfizer did tests on monkeys and found that vaccinated animals still got Covid although the duration of infection was shorter.
The clinical vaccine trials did not test for Sars-CoV-2 in all participants so it cannot answer the question of whether the vaccine actually reduces infection or transmission of the virus. The trials only tested for presence of the virus if the test subject became symptomatic. 170 of the total 41,135 (0.41%) subjects given two doses of the vaccine or placebo became symptomatic. Of these 170 subjects, 162 were in the unvaccinated group and 8 were in the vaccinated group. From these small numbers of symptomatic test subjects the 90-95% efficacy claims were calculated. https://www.pfizer.com/news/press-release/press-release-detail/pfizer-and-biontech-conclude-phase-3-study-covid-19-vaccine (Accessed 1-31-21)
The small number of test subjects in both groups who became symptomatic and then tested positive for Covid (170/41,135 x 100 = 0.4%) could also reflect decreased exposure, transmission, and/or virulence of the virus.
The CDC posts deaths and infection fatality ratios by age but has not released calculations for age-specific “survival rates” or “mortality rates.”
America’s Frontline Doctors White Paper On Experimental Vaccines For COVID-19, using CDC data on infection fatality ratios, total cases and total deaths, calculated and estimated risks of Covid deaths according to age. They state, “When talking about the risk/benefit ratio of any treatment we must consider the Infection Fatality Ratio or IFR. The IFR for COVID-19 varies dramatically by age, from a low of 0.003% for Americans under age 19 to as high as 5.4% for those 70 years of age and above.19 That is an 1800x risk difference based upon age! It is quite clear that young people are at a statistically insignificant risk of death from COVID-19. Nearly 80% of all coronavirus-related deaths in the US through November 28, 2020 have occurred in adults 65 years of age and older and only 6% of the deaths had COVID-19 as the only cause mentioned. On average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.20”
The CDC Infection Fatality Ratios by age according to CDC’s best estimate considering disease severity, virus transmissibility, and transmission are:
0-19 years: 0.00003; 20-49 years: 0.0002; 50-69 years: 0.005; 70+ years: 0.054.
The Frontline doctors calculated survival rates from this data to be:
As of Jan 23, 2021, CDC reported most of the deaths from Covid were in inpatient facilities 229,265 out of 359,265 x 100=64%. 79,134 or 22% of the 359,265 Covid deaths were in nursing homes or long term care facilities.
https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid_weekly/index.htm#PlaceDeath (Accessed 1-13-2021)
“CDC data also show that Americans, regardless of age group, are far more likely to die of something other than COVID-19. Even among those in the most heavily impacted age group (85 and older), only 10.8 percent of all deaths since February 2020 were due to COVID-19.”
FDA admits long list of possible negative side-effects. The list has 22 separate entries of “possible adverse event outcomes.” First on the list is “Guillain-Barré syndrome”, described as “a rare disorder in which your body's immune system attacks your nerves.” The syndrome has “no known cure” and it’s mortality rate is “4% to 7%.” “Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis,” a “rare inflammatory condition that affects the brain and spinal cord,” is second on the FDA’s list. Third is “Transverse myelitis,” a neurological disorder that inflames the spinal cord, causing “pain, muscle weakness, paralysis, sensory problems, or bladder and bowel dysfunction.” Also listed as a possible outcome of a potential vaccine is “Anaphylaxis,” the severe allergic reaction which can lead to anaphylactic shock. A “stroke,” and “convulsions/seizures” are further possible side-effects, along with “Acute myocardial infarction” or heart attacks, inflammation of the muscles around the heart, and even death.
The FDA also suggested that Kawasaki disease as being a possibility after the vaccine. The disease “mainly affects children under the age of 5,” and is “always treated in hospital.”
EFFICACY and EFFECTIVENESS
The public might assume that the words “efficacy” and “effectiveness” mean the same thing. In medical/scientific talk, they are different. “Efficacy” refers to the results observed in ideal or controlled conditions, like a vaccine clinical trial. “Effectiveness” is the result seen in the real world after widespread use. Hence the quote 95% “efficacy” in the controlled vaccine experimental trials may not be achieved in the real world after widespread vaccination. Recall that the clinical trials were testing for the virus only if the subjects became “symptomatic.” Asymptomatic persons in the trial were not tested so the overall effectiveness of the vaccine to prevent infection cannot be known.
https://pediaa.com/difference-between-efficacy-and-effectiveness/ (Accessed 1-20-21) https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20201118005595/en/ (Accessed 1-20-21)
VACCINE INJURY AND SIDE EFFECTS REPORTING
“Furthermore, mandating vaccines is a blatant violation of medical informed consent—a basic tenet of ethical medical practice. With numerous vaccines currently mandated for work, school, college, and daycare—and soon a coronavirus vaccine likely added to the list when marketed—the potential for harm increases.” “If an adult or child is killed or injured by a vaccine, federal law—the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986—prohibits the person from suing the drug company that made the vaccine.” https://clmagazine.org/topic/medicine-science/should-we-be-concerned-about-ethical-vaccines/
The FDA in October listed possible side effects that are to be monitored in conjunction with administering a COVID-19 vaccine. There is to be both passive and active surveillance of side effects related to the vaccine. Under the former system, the FDA is to partner with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to manage the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), whereby individuals report adverse side effects to their health care provider.”
“With the active surveillance, the FDA plans to use the “Biologics Effectiveness and Safety (BEST) System,” with numerous partners. MarketScan, the largest number of the partner companies, has over 250 million patients.
Along with the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the FDA states that its data can cover “approximately 55 million elderly US beneficiaries >65yrs of age.” It is through using the CMS data that the FDA plans to monitor side-effects from COVID vaccines, based on rapid-cycle analyses.”
PREGNANCY and mRNA COVID VACCINES
There is usually caution about giving medications to pregnant women. In spite of the many unknown and unstudied effects of these new vaccines, the CDC guidelines allow pregnant women who are part of a group (e.g. essential workers) to choose to receive them. Given that the risk of serious sequelae of COVID-19 disease is very low in young people, why would anyone who is pregnant or sexually active decide to receive the vaccine?
Use of aborted babies’ DNA? Pfizer and Moderna used cell cultures made from at least one aborted baby to test the vaccines, albeit not manufacture them. Although there are no cells from aborted babies in these mRNA vaccines, the remains of the murdered child were still illicitly used in testing to develop these vaccines. It must be mentioned that at least 7 other companies use aborted fetal cell line cultures in the manufacture and/or testing of Covid vaccines. https://soundchoice.org/vaccines/covid-19-vaccine-chart/
YOU MAY—YOU SHOULD—YOU MUST
At this time that vaccines are being made available to certain groups, thus a person “may” receive the vaccine. There are three verbs that usually follow. Now it is “you may,” “you should” often follows. Will there be a “you must”?
CONCLUSIONS & ONE PAGE SUMMARY
- The new mRNA COVID vaccines are experimental. Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) is not the same as FDA approval. There are many unknowns long-term and already more side effects short term, including life-threatening anaphylaxis, than for other vaccines. COVID-19 survival rates in the young are high and even in those >70+ years or older are 95%.
- To make an informed decision about receiving a vaccine requires full and complete information regarding safety, side effects, ingredients including preservatives, use of fetal cell lines, and vaccine companies’ lack of liability for damages. Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are not FDA approved but have been released under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). These are novel vaccines that can affect all cells in the body
- FDA lists 22 separate entries of possible adverse event outcomes, including “Guillain-Barré syndrome”, (no known cure and it’s mortality rate is 4% to 7%), Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (condition that affects the brain and spinal cord), Transverse myelitis (inflames the spinal cord, causing pain, muscle weakness, paralysis, sensory problems, or bladder and bowel dysfunction, Anaphylaxis, (severe allergic reaction which can lead to anaphylactic shock), stroke, convulsions/seizures” are further possible side-effects, along with Acute myocardial infarction, heart attacks.
- Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and 7 other companies used cell cultures made from at least one aborted, killed baby to test the vaccines, albeit not manufacture them.
- Despite unknown and unstudied effects of these new vaccines, the CDC guidelines allow pregnant women to choose to receive them. Given that the risk of serious sequelae of COVID-19 disease is very low in young people, why would anyone who is pregnant or sexually active decide to receive the vaccine?
- If an adult or child is killed or injured by a vaccine, federal law—the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986—prohibits the person from suing the drug company that made the vaccine.
- Is there a need for this vaccine? The calculated survival rates are:
- CDC data also show that Americans, regardless of age group, are far more likely to die of something other than COVID-19. Even among those in the most heavily impacted age group (85 and older), only 10.8 percent of all deaths since February 2020 were due to COVID-19.
- These new mRNA COVID vaccines are experimental. Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) is not the same as FDA approval. There are many unknowns long-term and already more side effects short term, including life-threatening anaphylaxis.
- Now, you may, or should get the vaccine. Will it be mandated?
- This information is to better inform your conscience when deciding to consent or decline the novel mRNA Covid-19 vaccines.
- I decline to get the vaccine. (Covid-19 Vaccine—to Consent or Decline. The entire article is worthy of careful study.)
As if this information is not enough for those “on the fence” about whether to get one or the other of the vaccinations for the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus, Dr. Joseph Mercola’s latest commentary explains that mad scientists are busy working on that second, more deadly strain that was referenced with such great glee by Bill and Melinda Gates in a video presentation two months ago:
If SARS-CoV-2 has frazzled your nerves, I have bad news for you. Scientists are already cooking up more virulent and lethal versions. In a January 22, 2021, Twitter post, biotech entrepreneur Yuri Deigin highlighted a study posted on the preprint server bioRxiv at the end of December 2020, saying:1
“Ok, the prize for the craziest and most dangerous gain-of-function research goes out to Italian virologists who took SARS[-CoV-]2 and passaged it in vitro in the presence of neutralizing antibodies.2 It quickly obliged and mutated to escape them. Yay for a novel, more dangerous SARS3!”
“Passaging” refers to a genetic engineering technique where a virus is grown in a series of different animal tissue cultures. With each “pass,” the virus will mutate slightly, gaining different functions.
Serial Passaging Allows Virus to Jump Species
As just one example, a potential outcome of this somewhat crude technique (considering the genetic engineering technology now available) would be that the virus could gain the ability to infect a host species it could not infect before. Some experts have speculated that this might be one way in which SARS-CoV-2 was created.
In an in-depth article3 published in New York magazine January 4, 2021, Nicholson Baker reviewed the history of viral gain-of-function research, providing the following example of serial passaging:
“Baric … described in this early paper how his lab was able to train a coronavirus, MHV, which causes hepatitis in mice, to jump species, so that it could reliably infect BHK (baby-hamster kidney) cell cultures.
They did it using serial passaging: repeatedly dosing a mixed solution of mouse cells and hamster cells with mouse-hepatitis virus, while each time decreasing the number of mouse cells and upping the concentration of hamster cells.
At first, predictably, the mouse-hepatitis virus couldn’t do much with the hamster cells, which were left almost free of infection, floating in their world of fetal-calf serum.
But by the end of the experiment, after dozens of passages through cell cultures, the virus had mutated: It had mastered the trick of parasitizing an unfamiliar rodent. A scourge of mice was transformed into a scourge of hamsters …”
Scientists Have Created Coronavirus That Escapes Antibodies
So, what exactly have they come up with now? As summarized by Deigin, researchers serial passaged live SARS-CoV-2 in plasma obtained from a recovered COVID-19 patient that had a high amount of neutralizing antibodies in it.4
For clarification, you have two types of antibodies. Neutralizing antibodies are, as the name implies, antibodies that neutralize (kill) viruses and prevent infection, whereas binding antibodies cannot prevent infection.
The neutralizing antibodies in the plasma successfully and completely neutralized the virus during the first seven passages, but then, the virus mutated to evade the antibodies. As explained by the authors:5
“The plasma fully neutralized the virus for 7 passages, but after 45 days, the deletion of F140 in the spike N-terminal domain (NTD) N3 loop led to partial breakthrough. At day 73, an E484K substitution in the receptor-binding domain (RBD) occurred, followed at day 80 by an insertion in the NTD N5 loop containing a new glycan sequon, which generated a variant completely resistant to plasma neutralization.”
In other words, they created a SARS-CoV-2 variant that bypasses acquired immunity and negates the immunity you normally would have after recovering from the infection. As such, it could be extremely lethal.
“Computational modeling predicts that the deletion and insertion in loops N3 and N5 prevent binding of neutralizing antibodies,” the authors say, adding:
“The recent emergence in the United Kingdom and South Africa of natural variants with similar changes suggests that SARS-CoV-2 has the potential to escape an effective immune response and that vaccines and antibodies able to control emerging variants should be developed.”
Now, further down in the paper, they point out that the reason they did this study was to determine “whether the authentic virus, under the selective pressure of the polyclonal immune response in convalescent or vaccinated people, can evolve to escape herd immunity and antibody treatment.”
Since the virus can mutate to evade neutralizing antibodies, then it could potentially mutate under the “selective pressure” of vaccination as well, which in turn raises the question: If we mass vaccinate, will we end up with a more lethal virus?
The solution these researchers seem to propose is to start thinking about vaccinating people for emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants, meaning we may need to develop a new vaccine — much like the seasonal flu vaccine, — to match the circulating strains of each season.
Considering the first COVID-19 mRNA vaccines (which are most accurately described as gene therapy) are wreaking absolute havoc on people’s health already, the idea of implementing a twice-a-year gene-therapy regimen against COVID-19 strikes me as assured destruction of the human race. (Serial Passage of the Coronavirus.)
The Children's Health Defense organization published additional informatoin about the dangers of the Moderna vaccination to "protect" against the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus:
Back in 1999, leading U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) official Dr. Peter Patriarca contended that modern advances in vaccine technology were rapidly “outpacing researchers’ ability to predict potential vaccine-related adverse events.” Patriarca mused that this could lead to “a situation of unforeseen and unpredictable vaccine outcomes.”
In a new research article published in Microbiology & Infectious Diseases, veteran immunologist J. Bart Classen expresses similar concerns and writes that “RNA-based COVID vaccines have the potential to cause more disease than the epidemic of COVID-19.”
Classen’s study establishes the potential for the messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines developed by Pfizer and Moderna to activate human proteins to take on “pathologic configurations” — configurations associated with chronic degenerative neurological diseases. Although his specific interest is in prion diseases (conditions associated with misfolded versions of normal proteins), Classen also outlines a handful of other mechanisms whereby RNA-based vaccines could give rise to “multiple other potential fatal adverse events.”
Ensuring that patients clearly understand risks — including known risks as well as potential unknown risks — is an important component of the informed consent process. This is all the more true when the intervention is experimental and lacks long-term safety data, as is the case with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines against COVID-19. The FDA authorized the two vaccines for widespread emergency use based on just two months of clinical trial data.
Unfortunately, it is not unusual for researchers’ communication of risks to be perfunctory. In October, researchers at New York University and Tulane reported that the information communicated to participants in the coronavirus clinical trials about a worrisome problem known as pathogenic priming was “sufficiently obscured” as to make “adequate patient comprehension” of risks “unlikely.”
It would be interesting to know what those researchers would say about Classen’s blunt conclusion that “Approving a vaccine, utilizing novel RNA technology without extensive testing is extremely dangerous.”
Those contemplating COVID injections may be ignoring potential risks at their own peril. (Immunologist: Pfizer BioNTech and Modern Vaccines Could Cause Long Term, Chronic Illness.)
One must remember that the monsters who believe in and/or practice the killing of the innocent in their mothers’ wombs and at any other time therefore according to their utilitarian “quality of life” judgments made on a variety of completely subjective precepts that presuppose the nonexistence of any objective moral truths whatsoever are easily capable of desiring to exterminate most people alive today in order to “save the planet” from that for which the planet was created by God: as a habitation for the zenith of His creative handiwork, the human being:
 And he said: Let us make man to our image and likeness: and let him have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the beasts, and the whole earth, and every creeping creature that moveth upon the earth.  And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them.  And God blessed them, saying: Increase and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all living creatures that move upon the earth.  And God said: Behold I have given you every herb bearing seed upon the earth, and all trees that have in themselves seed of their own kind, to be your meat:  And to all beasts of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to all that move upon the earth, and wherein there is life, that they may have to feed upon. And it was so done. (Genesis 1: 26-32.)
Is there any need for a further elaboration?
Alas, everything must "be up for grabs" when the souls of men are not taught, sanctified and governed by Holy Mother Church. Unrepentant sins of the most vile manner imaginable must abound, resulting ultimate in entire races of walking "blank slates," human beings who must decide "for themselves" that which has been ordained by God Himself in the Order of Nature (Creation) and the Order of Redemption (Grace.) Men come to think that they are demigods, beings who have the ability "to decide" what to think in matters to pertaining to Faith and Morals without assenting their intellects completely and without any reservation at all to what Holy Mother Church teaches infallibly.
The plandemicists love playing God as they worship the dirt out of which God created Adam and in which our bodies will be buried after we die. These monsters worship their own diabolically inspired schemes to effect the “great global reset of humanity” while despising the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity, and His rational creatures so that they can, they believe, “create” a veritable utopia free of “global climate warming and a new race of genetically modified “transhumans” who will be programmed to do as they are told as they live as serfs of their scientific, technological, political and economic masters. Everyone alive at this time is meant to serve as their thoroughly expendable guinea pigs in this demonic endeavor.
The Tyranny of Today’s Little Caesars and Caesarettes
Although I know of at least thirty people within my own personal acquaintance who are older than I am, it is nevertheless true that 1951, the year of my birth, was seventy years ago. I am sure that my late parents could never have imagined that their eldest son (the owner of a Chinese restaurant, Bo Wah’s, across Jamaica Avenue from my father’s veterinary hospital in Queens Village, New York, referred to me as “Dr. Droleskey number one son”) would have lived long enough to see spirit of Communism triumph in what they believed to be the bastion of “liberty,” the United States of America. Alas, they did not realize that this country had been set on an unstoppable course in the direction of tyranny by the very men who claimed to be revolting against an alleged tyrant, King George III, whose abuses, such as they were, pale into insignificance when compared with the tyrannical rule of elected officials and unelected minions that is now commonplace in what was considered the “free world” during the days of the Cold War. King George III had nothing on the likes of the current crop of caesars, caesarettes, commissars, and just plain thugs.
Nations that are founded on the exaltation of human liberty without a recognition of the simple fact that no one is morally free to do that which is opposed to the eternal laws of God and thus to the good of souls, including his own, must degenerate over the course of time such a state of licentiousness that is always the natural seedbed of tyranny. Men cannot live in states of social disorder permanently, making it thus inevitable that a caste of elites will arise to bring impose order on the chaos made possible by the absence of the Social Reign of Christ the King and a due submission to His Holy Church in all that pertains to the good of souls.
Sin has consequences. Men cannot expect that their nations will enjoy an unlimited access to all manner of material and worldly pleasures, including the freedom to travel at will or even to leave one’s own home without being monitored by the surveillance that comes with having a “smart” phone and by neighbors intent upon reporting “unauthorized” movement of those who refuse to “follow the science” and obey whatever arbitrary commands our civil minders, while the true God of Divine Revelation, Christ the King, is being offended daily by sins of blasphemy, sacrilege, impurity, indecency, willful murder, perversity, withholding the day laborer’s wages, and the defrauding of widows. Nations whose political, social, and economic lives are governed by relativism, materialism, secularism/naturalism, religious indifferentism, hedonism, environmentalism, feminism, egalitarianism, elitism and every other “’ism’” except Catholicism must degenerate to the point of overt tyranny eventually.
The new administration of Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and Kamala Harris are using every lever of power available to them even though most of what they are doing at this time by means of executive orders and presidential directives are plainly in violation of the Constitution of the United States of America. Then again, why should our petty caesars and caesarretes, commissars, and just plain thugs pay any attention to the words of mere men when they care not for the plain words of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as He has entrusted them exclusively to His Catholic Church for their infallible explication and eternal safekeeping?
Thus it is that, in addition to the pro-abortion, pro-perversity, climate-change and jobs killing wacko Catholic apostate named Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., there are a bevy of governors around the United States of America who have “followed the science” into locking us down and, with the assistance of the high priests and priestesses of Silicon Valley, keep attempting to shut us up about the fraud that is taking place before our very eyes. These arrogant thugs have exploited the plandemic while consigning thousands of innocent human beings to deaths in nursing homes and other facilities because of their hubristic mismanagement and their epic belief in their own infallibility and invincibility.
Chief among these thugs has been and continues to be none other than Figlio di Sfachim, Andrew Mark Cuomo, who remains arrogant even in the aftermath of a scathing report about his placing those infected with the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus into nursing homes that was issued recently by the pro-abortion, pro-perversity, pro-everything Attorney General of the State of New York, Letitia James:
Now that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo does not have former President Donald Trump to kick around anymore, it’s getting harder for him to hide the utter incompetence of his leadership during COVID-19. It turns out that the biggest stain on his record, the unnecessary deaths of thousands of nursing home residents, is even worse than initially thought.
One of the most inexplicable phenomena during the pandemic has been the efforts of the media to prop up Cuomo as some sort of Churchillian figure. In their need to create a hero character to contrast with Trump, they rallied around Cuomo and praised his daily press briefings even as his state bungled its response to COVID-19 as badly as, or perhaps worse than, any other.
The governor had the temerity to write a book on what he described as his success in fighting the virus. And he was laughably given an Emmy for crisis communication. “The governor’s 111 daily briefings worked so well because he effectively created television shows, with characters, plot lines, and stories of success and failure,” International Academy President and CEO Bruce L. Paisner said at the time in announcing the award.
Back on planet Earth, Cuomo’s leadership cost lives. He waited months before cleaning up the subways; he fumbled the reopening of schools; he incredibly forced providers to throw away COVID-19 vaccines to avoid the fines he imposed against anybody who vaccinated people outside the rigid sequence he had commanded.
But by far, the deadliest decision Cuomo made was to force nursing homes to readmit residents who had tested positive for COVID-19 and then been hospitalized. This allowed the virus to spread like wildfire among an extremely vulnerable population.
That much was known already. But this week, the state’s attorney general's office issued a report finding that prior estimates had undercounted the deaths at nursing homes by a staggering 50%.
As an example, the report says, “A facility reported five confirmed and six presumed COVID-19 deaths at the facility as of August 3 to [the Department of Health]. However, the facility reported to [the Office of the Attorney General] a total of 27 COVID-19 deaths at the facility and 13 hospital deaths — a discrepancy of 29 deaths.”
It specifically noted Cuomo’s order as one of the culprits: “Government guidance requiring the admission of COVID-19 patients into nursing homes may have put residents at increased risk of harm in some facilities and may have obscured the data available to assess that risk.”
As the Associated Press summarized, “The surprise development, after months of the state refusing to divulge its true numbers, showed that at least 12,743 long-term care residents died of the virus as of Jan. 19, far greater than the official tally of 8,505 on that day, cementing New York’s toll as one of the highest in the nation.”
“What I’ve found all through this crisis is that people value the truth,” Cuomo said with a straight face during a recent MSNBC interview. “Give me the information. Don’t give me the spin. Give me facts that don’t change. Tell me the truth.” Going on to blame the federal government for his state’s slow vaccine rollout, Cuomo said, “Incompetent government kills people.”
It may have been the least self-aware statement from a public official since Oedipus wondered who had brought a curse upon Thebes. (Cuomo’s Nursing Home Massacre Was Even Worse Than We Thought.)
State Attorney General Letitia James’ report on New York’s nursing-home horror proves Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been covering up the truth. The death toll is at least 50 percent higher than Team Cuomo admitted.
Worse is Cuomo’s years of indifference to the dangerous conditions in many of the state’s nursing homes. The value of James’ report is in calling attention to these conditions, particularly the absence of rigorous infection control, setting the stage for the COVID-19 devastation.
Unfortunately, James offered only flimsy proposals. After the state has coped with the pandemic, it has another important job to do: shuttering the worst of these nursing facilities and ensuring the elderly in our state live in decent conditions.
James’ report is making headlines because she examined a question the governor wanted to hide. On March 25, Cuomo’s Department of Health ordered nursing homes to accept COVID-positive patients being discharged from hospitals and barred the nursing facilities from requiring any tests for admission. Facilities had to fly blind.
The virus raced through these homes, killing thousands. To minimize the political fallout, Cuomo’s health commissioner, Howard Zucker, began fudging the statistics. Until April, New York had reported all nursing home residents who died from COVID-19, whether they died at the home or after being sent to the hospital. That’s standard. But as the toll soared, the state quietly shifted to reporting only deaths at the homes. That told only half the truth. Using sample data and statistical analysis, the James report suggests that the death count might be double Team Cuomo’s estimate.
James’ report puts an end to Cuomo’s months of dodging inquiries on how many nursing-home residents died in the Empire State. But the report should be just the beginning of a statewide push to shut nursing homes that offer deplorable, even deadly care. James’ report found that as the pandemic began, some nursing homes were already cauldrons of infection.
They failed to isolate patients with contagious bugs or train staff members in routine infection-control principles. Nursing homes that couldn’t stop staph and other superbugs from spreading patient to patient were helpless before the novel coronavirus.
Of the 621 nursing homes in the state, 107 earn only a one-star rating from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. That means the worst care. James’ report confirms what CMS has found nationwide, that nursing homes with lower ratings and lower staff-to-resident ratios have worse infection rates. And predictably, during the pandemic, their residents also have had the highest COVID-19 death rates.
This isn’t just a coronavirus problem. Long before COVID-19, the residents of low-rated facilities languished in dirty diapers, succumbed to bed sores, suffered dehydration because no one helped them eat and contracted staph and other infections owing to inadequate controls.
The outrage is that Cuomo and his Department of Health have tolerated doing business with these one-star nursing homes for a decade. New York pays among the highest Medicaid rates in the nation, and most nursing-home residents are on Medicaid. So New York taxpayers are shelling out top dollar for rock-bottom care.
The condition of nursing homes is a nationwide scandal, not limited to New York state.
But James’ report should be a catalyst for action in New York. Unfortunately, it offers only thin recommendations, such as increasing the number of employees in the state Department of Health. That’s laughable. The real culprit here is not too few government employees. It’s callous indifference to the vulnerable, while the state’s political class responds to hefty contributions from the health-care industry.
It’s no surprise that last spring, state pols offered limited immunity to health-care operators during the pandemic. The Greater New York Hospital Association, an industry group that donates lavishly to state pols, helped shape the legislation. James recommends getting rid of immunity. But that isn’t the answer, either. Damage awards for injury to the elderly are usually minuscule, and few families have the means to even bring a claim.
The state’s job is to ensure that nursing homes meet safe standards. James’ report shows that the Cuomo administration failed miserably. The tragic result is that too many frail elderly live out their last days in squalid, dangerous conditions. (Cuomo’s Coverup Over as New York has failed to crack down on awful nursing homes.)
Cuomo cares as little for the loss of lives caused by his gross mismanagement than he does for the daily slaughter of the innocent preborn that he suborns with the arrogance that those who of who are older recognize only too well as a trademark of Papa Cuomo, Mario Matthew Cuomo, aka Pontius Cuomo and Mario Pilate. Cuomo’s arrogance is matched by the flagrance of his comrade three thousand miles away, Gavin Christopher Newsom, the pro-abortion, pro-perversity, pro-everything bad Catholic apostate currently serving as the Governor of the People’s Republic of California.
Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom of California has been one of the strictest governors when it comes to lockdowns during the COVID-19 pandemic. California’s economy has been shackled by Newsom’s leadership for months, though on Monday, Newsom relented somewhat, suddenly lifting his state’s stay-at-home order.
“All counties will return to the colored tier system that assigns local risk levels based on case numbers and rates of positive test results for coronavirus infections,” the Los Angeles Times reported this week.
But the move comes amid questions about how transparent Newsom was being with crucial virus data.
Late last year, Newsom began only looking at data regarding ICU capacity when determining if regions of the state should be in lockdown.
“Rather than a county-by-county approach, he created five regions and established a single measurement — ICU capacity — as the determination for whether a region was placed under a stay-at-home order. In short order, four regions — about 98% of the state’s population — were under the restrictions after their capacity fell below the 15% threshold,” The Associated Press reported Jan. 22
“Four of the regions fell under the new order and three remained there until Monday, when state health officials announced that four-week projections showed them rising above the 15% threshold and Newsom said the order was lifted,” the AP added on Tuesday.
This action in lifting the lockdown seemed to contradict Newsom’s plan to look at ICU data. It didn’t help that, according to the AP’s Jan. 22 article, Newsom’s administration deliberately withheld some of that data from the public after easing restrictions in the Greater Sacramento area.
“State health officials said they rely on a very complex set of measurements that would confuse and potentially mislead the public if they were made public,” the AP reported, adding that officials used a “complex formula to project that while the Sacramento region’s intensive care capacity was below 10%, it would climb above 15% within four weeks. On Friday, it was 9%, roughly the same as when the order was lifted.”
“At the moment the projections are not being shared publicly,” Department of Public Health spokeswoman Ali Bay said.
“These fluid, on-the-ground conditions cannot be boiled down to a single data point — and to do so would mislead and create greater uncertainty for Californians,” California Health and Human Services Agency spokeswoman Kate Folmar added in a statement.
On Monday, the state finally released some of the projections to the public following backlash. Still, Newsom’s failure to do so sooner conveyed a clear message to California and the rest of the country, showing he believes that the citizens of his state are too inept to interpret data for themselves.
One opponent of Newsom’s initial decision to withhold information was Dr. Lee Riley, chairman of the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health infectious disease division.
“There is more uncertainty created by NOT releasing the data that only the state has access to,” he told the AP. “Its release would allow outside experts to assess its value for projecting trends and the resulting decisions on lifting restrictions.”
Those in the medical field like Riley are accustomed to publishing data and results from research for peer review, and this review is crucial in determining the quality and validity of the research. However, Newsom appeared to do the exact opposite by keeping the public and some of the most renowned health experts in the country in the dark.
The United States of America prides itself on transparency between government and citizens, yet Newsom’s actions — until he relented, at least — seem like those of a dictator rather than a leader in a democracy.
One explanation for Newsom’s sudden lifting of the stay-at-home order is if politics were the driving force behind his decision.
It is hard to ignore the fact that Newsom lifted the lockdown just days after President Donald Trump left office. Additionally, a growing number of Californians have expressed a desire to recall Newsom as governor due to their disgust with how he handled the pandemic.
“Frustration over California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic is fueling an effort to make him the second governor in the state’s history to be recalled from office. Proponents of the recall have raised more than $1.7 million and say they have gathered 1.2 million of the 1.5 million signatures they need by March 17 to get a recall on the ballot, which under state law would likely happen in the fall,” The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.
While Newsom’s timing seems convenient and political, he denied allegations that politics affected his decision to lift the lockdown, CNN reported.
Californians have every right to be furious with Newsom’s actions, and they deserve more from their public officials. Transparency and accountability from elected officials is not too much to ask, yet Newsom has failed Californians in both categories. (Newsom Cancels Stay-at-Home Order After California Officials Get Caught Hiding Virus Data From the Public.)
Our caesars, caesarettes, commissars, and all around thugs are true socialist elitists who believe that they, who reject the relevance of Divine Revolution in matters of public policy and/or deny its existence altogether, expect unfailing fealty from the “people,” whose “safety” is, of course, so very important to them, except that the plans to lock us all down to “follow the science,” wear masks in public, to keep a “social distance” from others, including members of one’s own household in many instances becomes laughable when our civil minders flagrantly violate their own rules.
Undaunted, however, the next “crisis” that our caesars, caesarettes, commissars and all around thugs want to exploit is that “global climate change,” which some believe may provide them with the pretext of yet another series of lockdowns:
ast week President Biden signed an executive order to rejoin the Paris Climate Accords. This was a mostly symbolic gesture, as the same alarmism being pushed prior to the agreement in 2016 is still being pushed now while nation-states like China are still ignoring it. Now Biden administration climate envoy John Kerry, under fire for boarding a private jet to Iceland to accept a climate award, is telling the United States and the world that the conditions of the Paris agreement are ‘inadequate’.
As the global climate elite push eating bugs and staying home to save the Earth on the masses, it’s worth posing the question: what will be adequate? With the Global Economic Forum in Davos approaching in April, we’re going to start hearing terms such ‘Climate Equity’ and ‘Climate Reset’ (a play on the WEF’s Great Reset) more frequently. We’ll probably also start to hear calls for climate lockdowns. I know, right now that sounds completely preposterous, but don’t these kooky ideas always find a way to bleed into the mainstream? Fifteen Days to Slow the Sun!
The possibility of climate lockdowns is already being floated by some of our greatest thinkers. They see a confluence of global crises as an opportunity. The perfect storm caused by COVID-19 and the resulting global economic meltdown offers a chance to take what they see as bold and dramatic action to save the planet. The Biden administration will certainly use the consequences of COVID to push through some green legislation, but just as before, it will not be enough in the eyes of progressives. There must always be more.
Mariana Mazzucato, an author and a professor in innovative economics at the University of London, raised the prospect of climate lockdowns in MarketWatch last September:
‘Under a “climate lockdown”, governments would limit private-vehicle use, ban consumption of red meat, and impose extreme energy-saving measures, while fossil-fuel companies would have to stop drilling. To avoid such a scenario, we must overhaul our economic structures and do capitalism differently.’
The idea of ‘doing capitalism differently’ is the driving rhetorical motivation behind the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset (another term for the implementation of global Marxism).
Karl Lauterbach, an MP for the German Social Democratic party wrote in Die Welt last December that ‘we need measures to deal with climate change that are similar to the restrictions on personal freedom [imposed] to combat the pandemic.’ How long before this theory makes its way into news outlets and politicians’ speeches here?
Of course this idea will be explained away as simply ‘following the science’. The lockdowns which began in spring 2020 contributed to what scientists are calling the largest drop in CO2 emissions in years. The largest reason for this was a decrease of approximately 40 percent in automobile and airplane transport. The World Economic Forum praised this figure in a blog post titled ‘Emissions fell during lockdown. Let’s keep it that way.’
alarmists like Greta Thunberg and John Kerry will be salivating at the prospect of using the emissions data to enact their ideas of a methane- and airplane-free future. How dare you refute it! If we can all just stay home for two weeks (which would inevitably become four weeks), it’s worth it to save the planet. Anyone who questions such proposals will be labeled a science denier and accused of wanting to kill their fellow neighbors (you know, like what you hear if you don’t wear a mask for a casual walk around the block).
How would governors and the federal government impose climate lockdowns? Simple: by declaring that climate change is an immediate public health and national security crisis, and using the same authority granted to them by public health departments to implement them under the same guidelines they did for COVID-19. Bernie Sanders and AOC announced a bill suggesting as much yesterday!
This was always the risk with the mass implementation of lockdowns. Once your leaders enforce one under the guise of public health, they will not simply set aside their power to do so again. Don’t worry though, they’re just following the science. (Get Ready for the Climate Lockdowns.)
An additional set of lockdowns is eminently plausible, especially as a president who governs by executive fiat sets out to force everyone to believe in leftist dogma while leaving no place for the role of the dogma taught by Holy Mother Church, an approach that the second “Catholic” president shares with his “pope,” Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who hates any dogma of the “past” as he cleaves to every Modernist and leftist shibboleth ever known to man. Given the fact that the current set of lockdowns and restrictions upon private businesses over the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus are going to continue periodically in states governed by the fascists of the false opposite of the naturalist “left,” we can certainly expect that the near future is going to include some kind of mandates to “save the planet,” for which Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., might receive the Nobel Prize for Peace.
The tyranny at this time extends far beyond the realm of politics and government, of course, as the private sector is busily working with government officials, including the public health fascists, to require a digital vaccination passport for travel. Although this was discussed in part nine of this series, there have been a few new developments since that commentary was published on December 28, 2020, the Feast of the Holy Innocents and the Fourth Day in the Octave of Christmas:
Digitalization Minister Anders Ygeman said three authorities in Sweden had been asked to work on producing the certificate, and the plan is to coordinate it with the World Health Organization and the European Union.
Ygeman told a news conference that vaccination certifications will likely be required for travel and "possibly taking part in other activities" when Sweden and neighboring countries start to open up again.
The announcement came after Denmark's government on Wednesday said it is joining forces with businesses to develop a digital passport that would show whether people have been vaccinated against the coronavirus, allowing them to travel and help ease restrictions on public life.
Finance Minister Morten Boedskov told a news conference that "in three, four months, a digital corona passport will be ready for use in, for example, business travel."
"It is absolutely crucial for us to be able to restart Danish society so that companies can get back on track. Many Danish companies are global companies with the whole world as a market," he added.
The Danish government said it will decide later on whether the digital passport should be used for purposes other than travel to help reopen public life.
The European Commission, meanwhile, has been weighing proposals to issue vaccination certificates to help get travelers to their vacation destinations more quickly and avoid another disastrous summer for Europe's tourism sector. But the EU's executive arm said for now such certificates would only be used for medical purposes, for instance to monitor the possible adverse effects of vaccines. (Sweden Developing Digital Coronavirus Vaccine Passport.)
ONDON — A digital Covid vaccination passport is being jointly developed by a group of health and technology companies who anticipate that governments, airlines and other firms will soon start asking people for proof that they have been inoculated.
The VCI said it wants to develop technology that enables individuals to obtain an encrypted digital copy of their immunization credentials that can be stored in a digital wallet of their choice, such as the Apple Wallet or Google Pay. It suggested that anyone without a smartphone could receive paper printed with QR codes containing verifiable credentials
The coalition said it will also try to develop new standards for confirming whether a person has or hasn’t been inoculated against the virus. Previously, citizens have used vaccination booklets to keep track of their travel vaccines but authorities rarely ask to see them.
“The goal of the Vaccination Credential Initiative is to empower individuals with digital access to their vaccination records,” said Paul Meyer, CEO of non-profit The Commons Project, which is a member of the coalition, in a statement.
He added that the technology should allow people “to safely return to travel, work, school, and life, while protecting their data privacy.”
Bill Patterson, an executive vice president and general manager at enterprise software firm Salesforce, said his company wants to help organizations “customize all aspects of the vaccination management lifecycle and integrate closely with other coalition members’ offerings, which will help us all get back to public life.”
“With a single platform to help deliver safe and continuous operations and deepen trust with customers and employees, this coalition will be crucial to support public health and wellbeing,” Patterson added.

Vaccine divides opinion
While many people can’t wait to protect themselves from the virus, some are adamant that they won’t get the jab, leaving populations divided into those that have been vaccinated and those that haven’t. In the U.K., one in five say they are unlikely to get the vaccine, according to YouGov research published in November, citing a variety of different reasons.
Millions of people around the world still don’t want to be vaccinated, according to opinion polls. Some fear needles, some believe in unsubstantiated conspiracy theories and some are worried about potential side effects. Others just don’t think getting vaccinated is necessary and would rather risk catching Covid.
As a result of the differing views, a debate could start to emerge in 2021. Should any restrictions be imposed on people who choose not to get vaccinated, given they can catch and spread the virus?
It’s a tricky subject but governments are already looking at introducing systems that would enable authorities, and possibly businesses, to tell if a person has had a Covid vaccine or not.
In December it emerged that Los Angeles County plans to let Covid vaccine recipients store proof of immunization in the Apple Wallet on their iPhone, which can also store tickets and boarding passes in digital form. Officials say it will first be used to remind people to get their second shot of the vaccine but it could, eventually, be used to gain access to concert venues or airline flights.
China has launched a health code app that shows whether a person is symptom-free in order to check into a hotel or use the subway. In Chile, citizens that have recovered from the coronavirus have been issued with “virus free” certificates.
On Dec. 28, Spain’s Health Minister Salvador Illa said the country will create a registry to show who has refused to be vaccinated and that the database could be shared across Europe.
Elsewhere, the CEO of Delta Air Lines, Ed Bastian, said in April that immunity passports could be used to help fliers feel more confident in their personal safety while traveling.
A spokesperson for Ryanair said “vaccination won’t be a requirement when flying Ryanair” when CNBC asked if it would ever prevent non-vaccinated people from flying on its aircraft. British Airways, Qantas, and easyJet did not respond to CNBC’s request for comment.
Isra Black, a lecturer in law at the University of York, and Lisa Forsberg, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Oxford who researches medical ethics, told CNBC that it “isn’t easy to say whether it would be ethically permissible for a state to impose restrictions” on people who refuse a jab.
The academics said in a joint statement via email that the answer will depend on factors like vaccine supply, the level of vaccination in the population, the nature of the restrictions on vaccine refusers, and how the restrictions are operationalized.
“We might think that there are strong, albeit not necessarily decisive, reasons in favor of some limitation on regaining pre-pandemic freedoms for individuals who refuse vaccination for Covid-19, for example, on their freedom to gather,” said Black and Forsberg. “There is the potential for unvaccinated individuals to contract a serious case of coronavirus, which we take would be bad for them, but could also negatively affect others, for example, if health resources have to be diverted away from non-Covid care.” (Microsoft Salesforce and Oracle Working on Covid-19 Vaccination Passport.)
Among governments and those in the travel industry, a new term has entered the vocabulary: vaccine passport.
One of President Biden’s executive orders aimed at curbing the pandemic asks government agencies to “assess the feasibility” of linking coronavirus vaccine certificates with other vaccination documents, and producing digital versions of them.
Denmark’s government said on Wednesday that in the next three to four months, it will roll out a digital passport that will allow citizens to show they have been vaccinated.
It isn’t just governments that are suggesting vaccine passports. In a few weeks, Etihad Airways and Emirates will start using a digital travel pass, developed by the International Air Transport Association, to help passengers manage their travel plans and provide airlines and governments documentation that they have been vaccinated or tested for Covid-19.
The challenge right now is creating a document or app that is accepted around the world, that protects privacy and is accessible to people regardless of their wealth or access to smartphones.Here’s what we know about the current status of digital vaccine passports.
What is a vaccine pass or passport?
A vaccination pass or passport is documentation proving that you have been vaccinated against Covid-19. Some versions will also allow people to show that they have tested negative for the virus, and therefore can more easily travel. The versions being worked on now by airlines, industry groups, nonprofits and technology companies will be something you can pull up on your mobile phone as an app or part of your digital wallet.
“It’s about trying to digitize a process that happens now and make it into something that allows for more harmony and ease, making it easier for people to travel between countries without having to pull out different papers for different countries and different documents at different checkpoints,” said Nick Careen, senior vice president for airport, passenger, cargo and security at I.A.T.A. Mr. Careen has been leading I.A.T.A.’s travel pass initiative.
I.A.T.A. is one of several organizations that have been working on digital solutions to streamline the travel credentialing process for years; during the pandemic, these groups have focused on including vaccination status. The idea is that if you have all the pertinent information on your phone, a significant amount of time will be saved.
In addition to I.A.T.A., IBM has been developing its own Digital Health Pass that would enable individuals to present proof of vaccination or a negative test to gain access to a public location, such as a sports stadium, airplane, university or workplace. The pass, built on IBM’s blockchain technology, can utilize multiple data types, including temperature checks, virus exposure notifications, test results and vaccine status. The World Economic Forum and the Commons Project Foundation, a Swiss nonprofit group, have been testing a digital health passport called CommonPass, which would allow travelers to access testing or vaccination information. The pass would generate a QR code that could be shown to authorities.
As more people are inoculated, there will likely be aspects of public life in which only people who have been vaccinated are allowed to participate. Take the upcoming Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Fla., where a significant portion of attendees will be vaccinated health care workers. (Mr. Careen of I.A.T.A. said that sporting organizations, concert venues and tourism agencies have all reached out for identification tech support.)
In order to travel internationally, government and health authorities will need to know if you have been vaccinated or have tested negative for the virus. Many countries are already requiring proof of a negative test for entry. Such passes could be essential to restarting the tourism industry, said Zurab Pololikashvili, secretary general of the United Nations World Tourism Organization.
“One key element vital for the restart of tourism is consistency and harmonization of rules and protocols regarding international travel,” he said in an email. “Evidence of vaccination, for example, through the coordinated introduction of what may be called ‘health passports’ can offer this. They can also eliminate the need for quarantine on arrival, a policy which is also standing in the way of the return of international tourism.”
Dakota Gruener, executive director of ID2020, a global public-private partnership, said that there are three scenarios regarding digital credentialing for the coronavirus response. The first, which is largely off the table, is the creation of immunity certificates. These are documents that would show that people have developed some kind of immunity to the virus. The second scenario is being able to prove you’ve tested negative for the virus; the third is being able to show that you have been vaccinated. The last two scenarios, experts agree, are the most important for getting the travel industry going again.
“We’re seeing a lot of interest from airlines, airline industry groups, customs and border control agencies and travelers, all saying, ‘how do I safely get on a plane or as a condition of entry into a country, get on a train, whatever the case may be, and prove that I have been tested or vaccinated?’” Ms. Gruener said. (Here Come the Vaccination Passports.)
Fascists one, fascists all.
These self-proclaimed “experts” believe in their own omniscience and they are now drunk on the omnipotence that the plandemic has made it possible for them to exercise. These minions of Antichrist love the fact that they can get to decide who will be “free” and who will be “restricted” to live lives of isolation as social lepers, veritable outcasts in a world gone mad.
Revoking the old-fashioned government-issued passport if one does not get vaccinated?
Being unable to obtain or renew a driver’s license in one’s home state or to transfer it if one moves to another state?
The cancellation of health, home and motor vehicle insurance policies?
Forcible removal from one’s own home?
Being ineligible to obtain or retain employment?
Prison time for offenders?
The statists who are part of this plandemic narrative know what they are doing. These wretched people, for whose conversion we must pray, know that fear “sells,” and the one who inspires them, namely, the adversary, knows that most people alive today fear not to fall into what are sins in the objective order of things and that even those who ought to know better fear not to actually promote the nonexistent “right” to commit various sins under the cover of law.
Most people alive today do not live in fear of offending God. Indeed, they live in dread fear of offending the sensitivities of their fellow men lest they run afoul of the thought and speech police, who are constantly seeking to find new ways to curb one’s ability to express the truth anywhere at any time without being accused of committing a “hate” crime.
This whole plandemic and how it is continuing to unfold underscores the fact that men who do not understand that sin is more deadly than any virus, including the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus, are easy marks for those who excuse themselves for not wanting to “impose” “their” morality or beliefs upon others but who have no problem imposing falsehoods in the name of public health and safety. This reminds us once again that it is essential at all times to view the world through the supernatural eyes of the Holy Faith as to fail to do is to lead one down the path of despair and/or a surrender to the enemies of Christ the King and thus to all to obey them unquestioningly or to suffer the considerable consequences for refusing to do so.
To Bear the Cross With Joy Every Day of Our Lives
The following words of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, although ever important, must be our supernatural “reality check” as we witness the transformation of nations who are untethered to the Social Reign of Christ the King into Communist prison camps where “refuseniks” can be dealt with as arbitrarily as innocent preborn babies in their mothers’ wombs or as anyone after birth is who is deemed to “brain dead” when he is alive or whose life is said to be lacking a sufficient “quality of life” to be continued:
Behold I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be ye therefore wise as serpents and simple as doves. But beware of men. For they will deliver you up in councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues. And you shall be brought before governors, and before kings for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the Gentiles: But when they shall deliver you up, take no thought how or what to speak: for it shall be given you in that hour what to speak. For it is not you that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaketh in you.
The brother also shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the son: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and shall put them to death. And you shall be hated by all men for my name's sake: but he that shall persevere unto the end, he shall be saved. And when they shall persecute you in this city, flee into another. Amen I say to you, you shall not finish all the cities of Israel, till the Son of man come. The disciple is not above the master, nor the servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the goodman of the house Beelzebub, how much more them of his household?
Therefore fear them not. For nothing is covered that shall not be revealed: nor hid, that shall not be known. That which I tell you in the dark, speak ye in the light: and that which you hear in the ear, preach ye upon the housetops. And fear ye not them that kill the body, and are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and not one of them shall fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear not therefore: better are you than many sparrows. Every one therefore that shall confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father who is in heaven. But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven. Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword. For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
And a man's enemies shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not up his cross, and followeth me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for me, shall find it. He that receiveth you, receiveth me: and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me. (Matthew 10: 16-40.)
The Cross is ever present in our lives. There is never any fleeing from the Cross. If we truly understand the Faith and reject all naturalistic influences, we will come to accept the fact that the Cross is waiting for us at every moment of our lives. No matter what decisions we might make as to which fork in the road to take at a given time, we can be sure of one thing: the Cross will be waiting for us all along either path.
The Cross is our hope.
The Cross is the means of our salvation.
The Cross of the Divine Redeemer is the glory of our Catholic Faith. Catholics glory in that Cross. They do not shrink from it, and they recognize that every difficulty, every misunderstanding, every physical or emotional or spiritual pain, every humiliation, every calumny, and every rejection is meant to give us a share in the Cross of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as we give whatever merit we earn to Him as His consecrated slaves\ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. And we must recognize the simple truth that there is more merit for us when the crosses that we are asked to bear are hidden from public view and others make judgments about us based on a complete ignorance of those hidden crosses that are meant to be revealed only on the Last Day at the General Judgment of the Living and the Dead.
It is certainly true that Catholics in previous times of persecution took prudent measures to protect themselves. Catholics during the episodic persecutions undertaken against them by Roman emperors and their minions between 67 A.D. and 313 A.D. (and for a while longer in some parts of the Roman Empire) assisted at Holy Mass in the catacombs.
Catholics during the time of the Protestant Revolt in England in the Sixteenth Century had Holy Masses offered in their homes clandestinely. Some of those Catholics had what were known as "priest holes" in their homes, hiding places to keep their priests from the minions of King Henry VIII or his immediate successor, his son, King Edward VI, or, very notoriously, his daughter by the Jezebel known as Anne Boleyn, Queen Elizabeth I, who hired the wretched Richard Topcliffe, known as the "priest-catcher," who captured and tortured numerous priests, including Blessed Robert Southwell, S.J. Among Elizabeth I's other famous Jesuit victims was, of course, Blessed Edmund Campion, S.J., who used various disguises to stave off what he knew would be his inevitable arrest and execution. Additionally, of course, Japanese Catholics maintained the Faith for a period of two hundred fifty years following the persecutions against them at the beginning of the Seventeenth Century.
Although Catholics in these and many other periods of persecutions took prudent measures to protect themselves, they were ever willing to embrace the Cross and to accept martyrdom with joy as the means by which they could glorify the Most Blessed Trinity and to save their immortal souls as they bore witness to the one and only true Faith, Catholicism. Catholics in each of these periods of persecution knew that the civil authorities and/or enemies of the Cross of the Divine Redeemer in various false religions employed sophisticated networks of spies to try to catch them in a "forbidden" act of worship or some "forbidden" speech that sought to proselytize on behalf of the true Faith. These Catholics did not leave in fear of the spies. Neither should we.
That is, there are far, far more sophisticated, and intrusive means today by which the enemies of the Faith can spy upon us. Even the very instrument on which these words are being typed, a computer, can be used against us. Although there are various "spy-busting" software programs designed to "catch" efforts to plant "bugs" in our computer that monitor our use of the internet, it is a fact of life that those intent on gaining knowledge about us and our beliefs can do so more readily than ever before.
What can we do?
Go into a cocoon?
We must recognize that the intrusiveness that exists at this time is part of the Chastisement that is being visited upon us for our own sins—and some of us deserve a Chastisement far worse that God in His infinite and ineffable Mercy permits us to suffer!—and those of the whole world. Rather than be intimidated by this intrusiveness (the monitoring of e-mails and websites and internet searches and cellular and land line telephone calls, the monitoring of our bank accounts and of the movements of our vehicles by means of various "global positioning systems" we can use the constant electronic monitoring that is now upon us to defend the Faith with a noble confidence in Our Lady's loving maternal intercession. Let us use the conversations and the correspondence that may indeed be under monitoring for the eternal good of those who might be monitoring us.
Our first Pope, Saint Peter, writing under the inspiration of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, has given us our marching orders about how to deal with the statist spies who have a variety of different—and mostly subtle, at least up until the past twelve months—ways of applying pressure upon us to conform to the "received wisdom" of their statist paymasters:
Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, to refrain yourselves from carnal desires which war against the soul, Having your conversation good among the Gentiles: that whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by the good works, which they shall behold in you, glorify God in the day of visitation. Be ye subject therefore to every human creature for God's sake: whether it be to the king as excelling; Or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of the good: For so is the will of God, that by doing well you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
As free, and not as making liberty a cloak for malice, but as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king. Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. For this is thankworthy, if for conscience towards God, a man endure sorrows, suffering wrongfully. For what glory is it, if committing sin, and being buffeted for it, you endure? But if doing well you suffer patiently; this is thankworthy before God.
For unto this are you called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving you an example that you should follow his steps. Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth. Who, when he was reviled, did not revile: when he suffered, he threatened not: but delivered himself to him that judged him unjustly. Who his own self bore our sins in his body upon the tree: that we, being dead to sins, should live to justice: by whose stripes you were healed. For you were as sheep going astray; but you are now converted to the shepherd and bishop of your souls. (1 Peter 2: 11-25.)
There are countless examples of saints who converted unbelievers or apostates to the Faith during the midst of persecutions. The confident bravery of Catholics who weathered torture with trust in Our Lord and His Most Blessed Mother, the Acts of Faith, Hope, and Charity, and Contrition uttered by Catholics facing execution for their beliefs as they refused to pay any esteem whatsoever to the very false religions that are esteemed so readily today by Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his conciliar "bishops," the quiet acceptance of the loss of friends and even family members for the love of the true God Who has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His Catholic Church, the kind words offered to their jailers by Catholics who have been imprisoned for the Faith, the performance of the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy in the midst of the most excruciating torments imaginable, yes, all of these and so many other means have been used by Catholics in the midst of being spied upon and persecuted simply because they desired to obey God rather than men and would not give up the Catholic Faith.
Holy Mother Church gives us these saints to be our intercessors, yes. She also gives them to us to be our examples as to how to accept our daily crosses, whether large or small, and to give thanks to God for each and every one of them, rejoicing that He loves us so much as to give us opportunities to manifest our love for Him as He has revealed Himself to us through His true Church as we make reparation for our sins and those of the whole world by giving all of our prayers and sufferings and humiliations and penitential acts that are seen and known only by Him to Him through His Most Blessed Mother's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.
We should every day to Our Lady to help us to cooperate with the graces that sends to us sends to us that have been won for us by the shedding of every single drop of her Divine Son’s Most Precious Blood during His Passion and Death on the Holy Cross, which must be our glory each day of our lives, just as Saint Paul taught us in his First Epistle to the Corinthians:
But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews indeed a stumblingblock, and unto the Gentiles foolishness: But unto them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. (1 Cor. 1: 23-25.)
We just have to be about the business each day of pleasing God as He has revealed Himself to us through His true Church, seeking, wherever possible, to get to true offerings of Holy Mass by true bishops and true priests who make no concessions to conciliarism, spending time in prayer, if at all possible in this time of apostasy and betrayal, before Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament, praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit, praying to our Guardian Angels, who behold the very Beatific Vision of the Most Blessed Trinity as they serve us here on earth, to help us keep aware of the Divine Presence at all times, praying to Saint Joseph, the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful, to help us see the Providence of God in all of the events of our lives, recognizing that our lives could be demanded of us this night (cf. Luke 12: 20: " But God said to him: Thou fool, this night do they require thy soul of thee: and whose shall those things be which thou hast provided?").
The plandemicists and enablers who might be spying on us are not the real enemies, my friends. Saint Paul, told us this quite explicitly:
Put you on the armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. Therefore take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of justice, And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace:
In all things taking the shield of faith, wherewith you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one. And take unto you the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God). By all prayer and supplication praying at all times in the spirit; and in the same watching with all instance and supplication for all the saints (Ephesians 6: 11-18.)
The devil and his minions are spying on us every day to find ways to trap us into losing our souls.
An unkind word to a family member.
A thoughtless act of impatience.
A refusal to forgive some injury that we believe was done to us in the past by another.
The nursing of a grudge as a result of that refusal to forgive another as we are forgiven so freely in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance.
The hardness of heart that refuses to see in others the Divine impress.
Sloth in our work and in our family duties.
Our unwillingness to bear crosses willingly.
Our failure to remember that our homes our enthroned to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary and to fulfill the obligations that comes with that home enthronement. Our resentment at being criticized or rejected.
The pride born of naturalism and semi-Pelagianism that convinces us we can "solve" our own problems and those of society absent a complete subordination to everything taught by the Catholic church.
Oh, yes, our true enemies are spying on us at all times, and these true enemies do not need electronic devices to do so. We should be concerned about these spies as we pray for the conversion of the statists and their corporate sycophants and enablers who might be monitoring our words and actions.
A former friend of mine told me in 1997 when I got EZ-Pass in New York, "Tom, they will know where you all the time." My response was a short one: "Let 'em!" God sees all of our words and actions, does He not? That's the only thing that matters. If we are called upon to suffer at the hands of the minions of the devil who serve in the institutions of civil governance, my friends, we should rejoice as the good God is giving us a means, despite our own utter unworthiness, to save our souls and to prove our friendship and our love for Him as members of the Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order.
With complete reliance upon and confidence in the maternal protection of Our Lady, she who is our Blessed Mother, Advocate, Co-Redemptrix and Mediatrix of all graces, may we pray our Rosaries with renewed fervor each day as we give thanks to God for willing us to be alive in the challenging times and remember that the graces His Divine Son won for us during His Redemptive Act on the wood of the Holy Cross are sufficient for the moment.
Sin is always more dangerous than the coronavirus, and it is only the graces Our Lady sends to us that we can any hope of saving ourselves from hell and thus being ready at all times for the moment of our Particular Judgment.

On the Feast of Saint of Matha and Monday in Sexagesima Week
Today is the Feast of Saint John of Matha, who co-founded the Order of the Most Holy Trinity for the Ransom of prisoners, known commonly as the Trinitarians, with Saint Felix of Valois, whose feast is celebrated each year on November 20, for the rescue of Christians held as captives by the Saracens.
The Saracens, both literally and figuratively, are causing us great problems now, of course, which is why the life’s work of Saint John of Matha, summarized by the hagiography contained in today’s readings in the Divine Office, should inspire us to invoke his invocation to help us ward off any possibility of enslavement to the devil and his minions in this life and thus be his eternal prisoner in the torments of hell:
John de la Mata, the founder of the Order of the Most Holy Trinity for the Ransom of Prisoners, was born at Faucon, in Provence, (upon Midsummer's Day, in the year 1169,) and was the child of parents equally distinguished for their rank and their godly life. He went for his education first to Aix and then to Paris. At the University of Paris, where he went through the course of Divinity and took the degree of Doctor, he became eminent for learning and virtue. For this reason the Bishop of Paris ordained him Priest, an honour from which his lowliness caused him to shrink, in the hope that he should induce him to remain at Paris, and be a bright example of wisdom and manners to the students who resorted thither. He offered up the Holy Sacrifice to God for the first time in the private Chapel of the Bishop, and in the presence of that Prelate and diverse other persons. In the midst of the ceremony, a vision from God appeared to John. There appeared to him an angel, clad in raiment white and glistering; having sewn on his breast a cross of red and blue. His arms were crossed before him, and his hands were upon the heads of two slaves, one a Christian and the other a Moor. And immediately the man of God was in the spirit, and knew that he was called to the work of ransoming bondsmen from the power of the unbelievers.
That he might set himself with due forethought to the carrying out of his work, he withdrew into a certain desert, and there, by the will of God, he found Felix de Valois, who had already spent many years in that place. With him he joined company, and they passed three years together in continual prayer, meditation, and all spiritual exercises. It came to pass, one day, when they were sitting on the bank of a spring, that there came to them a stag having between his horns a cross of red and blue. Felix cried out in wonder at that sight, and John then told him of the vision that had appeared to him when he was saying his first Mass. Thenceforth they gave themselves with redoubled fervour to prayer, and, being three times warned in sleep, they determined to go to Rome, and pray the Pope to institute an Order for the ransom of prisoners. They arrived at the time of the election of Innocent III., who received them courteously, and entertained in his mind their petition. While he was in consideration, he went to the Lateran Cathedral, on the second Feast of St. Agnes, and there, while Mass was being solemnly sung, at the moment of the elevation of the Sacred Host, there appeared to him an angel, clad in raiment white and glistering, having sewn on his breast a cross of red and blue, and making as though he would free prisoners. Thereupon the Pope founded the Order, commanding that it should be called the Order of the Most Holy Trinity for the Ransom of prisoners, and that they who professed in it should be clad in white raiment, having sewn on their breasts a cross of red and blue.
The Order being thus established, the holy Founders returned into France, and built their first Convent at Cerfroid, in the diocese of Meaux. Felix remained in charge of this house, and John went back to Rome with several companions. To them Innocent gave the house, Church, and hospital of St. Thomas de Formis on the Coelian Mount, with great endowments and property. Moreover he gave them a letter of introduction to Miramolin, King of Morocco, and they began with bright hopes the work of ransoming prisoners. John next betook himself to Spain, great part of which was then in the hands of the Saracens, and stirred up the hearts of the kings, princes, and all the faithful to have pity on slaves and the poor. He built Convents, founded Hospitals, and ransomed many bondsmen, to the great gain of souls. At last he returned to Rome, still busied in good works, but worn out by unceasing toil, and weakened by sickness. As he drew near the end of his earthly pilgrimage, his burning love for God and for his neighbour suffered no diminution. He called together his brethren, and earnestly exhorted them to go on with that work of ransom which had been pointed out to them from heaven, and then fell asleep in the Lord, on the 21st day of December, 1213. His body was buried with due honour in the Church of St. Thomas de Formis. (Matins, the Divine Office, Feast of Saint John of Matha.)
We must work until the end as we possess the undiminished confidence Our Lady gave to Saint John of Matha to continue his work so that we shall be delivered from enslavement to our sins, begging her to help us to remember that the price of ransom has been paid by her Divine Son during His Passion and Death on the wood of the Holy Cross.
Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., provided the following narrative of Saint John of Matha’s life and then offered a prayer in his honor:
We were celebrating, not many days ago, the memory of Peter Nolasco, who was inspired, by the Holy Mother of God, to found an Order for the ransoming of Christian captives from the infidels: today, we have to honour the generous Saint, to whom this sublime work was first revealed. He established, under the name of the Most Holy Trinity, a body of religious men, who bound themselves by vow to devote their energies, their privations, their liberty, nay, their very life, to the service of the poor slaves who were groaning under the Saracen yoke. The Order of the Trinitarians, and the Order of Mercy, though distinct, have the same end in view, and the result of their labours, during the six hundred years of their existence, has been the restoring to liberty and preserving from apostacy upwards of a million slaves. John of Matha, assisted by his faithful cooperator, Felix of Valois, (whose feast we shall keep at the close of the Year,) established the centre of his grand work at Meaux, in France. We are preparing for Lent, when one of our great duties will have to be that of charity towards our suffering brethren: what finer model could we have than John of Matha, and his whole Order, which was called into existence for no other object than that of delivering from the horrors of slavery brethren who were utter strangers to their deliverers, but were in suffering and in bondage. Can we imagine any almsgiving, let it be ever so generous, which can bear comparison with this devotedness of men, who bind themselves by their Rule, not only to traverse every Christian land begging alms for the ransom of slaves, but to change places with the poor captives, if their liberty cannot be otherwise obtained ? Is it not, as far as human weakness permits, following to the very letter, the example of the Son of God himself, who came down from heaven that he might be our ransom and Redeemer? We repeat it: with such models as these before us, we shall feel ourselves urged to follow the injunction we are shortly to receive from the Church, of exercising works of mercy towards our fellow creatures, as being one of the essential elements of our Lenten penance. . . .
And now, generous-hearted saint, enjoy the fruits of thy devoted charity. Our blessed Redeemer recognizes thee as one of His most faithful imitators, and the whole court of heaven is witness of the recompense wherewith he loves to honor thy likeness to Himself. We must imitate thee; we must walk in thy footsteps; for we too hope to reach the same eternal resting place. Fraternal charity will lead us to heaven, for the works it inspires us to do have the power of freeing the soul from sin, as our Lord assures us. Thy charity was formed on the model of that which is in the heart of God, who loves our soul yet disdains not to provide for the wants of our body. Seeing so many souls in danger of apostasy, thou didst run to their aid, and men were taught to love a religion which can produce heroes of charity like thee. Thy heart bled at hearing of the bodily sufferings of these captives, and thy hand broke the chains of their galling slavery. Teach us the secret of ardent charity. Is it possible that we can see a soul in danger of being lost and remain indifferent? Have we forgotten the divine promise told us by the apostle: “He that causeth a sinner to be converted from the error of his way, shall save his soul from death, and shall cover a multitude of his own sins”? Get us also a tender compassion for such as are in bodily suffering and poverty, that so we may be generous in comforting them under these trials, which are but too often an occasion of their blaspheming Providence. Dear friend and liberator of slaves! pray, during this holy season, for those who groan under the captivity of sin and Satan; for those, especially, who, taken with the frenzy of earthly pleasures, feel not the weight of their chains, but sleep on peacefully through their slavery. Ransom them by thy prayers, convert them to the Lord their God, lead them back to the land of freedom. Pray for France, which was thy country, and save her from infidelity. Protect the venerable remnants of thy Order, that so it may labor for the present wants of the Christian world, since the object for which thou didst institute it has ceased to require its devotedness. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year, Feast of Saint John of Matha.)
Dom Prosper Gueranger’s own native France had, of course, been thrown into the tumult caused by the French Revolution, the rise, defeat, return and then exile of Napoleon Bonaparte, the 1830 revolution, the rise and then the fall of Louis Napoleon in the aftermath of France’s defeat in the Franco-Prussian War, 1870-1871, when the revolution of 1871 ushered in the French Third Republic. Dom Prosper lived his entire life (April 4, 1805 to January 30, 1875) during the midst of social upheavals caused by the original French Revolution and all the hatred, violence, disorder and unrest that continues to flow therefrom to this very day. Indeed, the French Revolution of 1789 was notable as it was the first anti-Theistic revolution in history, paving the way for the atheistic Bolshevik Revolution in Russia one hundred eighteen years later.
Abbot Gueranger, however, did not live in fear. He gave us a legacy about the feast days of saints as they are celebrated during the liturgical year to remind us today, one hundred forty-six years after his death, that the only thing that we have to fear is the loss of Sanctifying Grace and thus the loss of the possession of the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost in Heaven for all eternity if we remain unrepentant until death.
The tyrants of this passing, mortal vale of tears are forgettable men and women. Our current tyrants think that the world belongs to them, thus succumbing to the temptation in the desert that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour resisted when he told off satan as follows:
 And said to him: If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down, for it is written: That he hath given his angels charge over thee, and in their hands shall they bear thee up, lest perhaps thou dash thy foot against a stone.  Jesus said to him: It is written again: Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.  Again the devil took him up into a very high mountain, and shewed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them,  And said to him: All these will I give thee, if falling down thou wilt adore me.  Then Jesus saith to him: Begone, Satan: for it is written, The Lord thy God shalt thou adore, and him only shalt thou serve. (Matthew 4: 6-10.)
We are weak and are thus tempted to succumb.
Our Lord, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity made Man in His Most Blessed Mother’s Virginal and Immaculate Womb, could not succumb. However, He permitted us to be tempted to teach us that it is possible for sinful men to resist temptation by cooperating with His graces, and we should never think, as do our current crop of tyrants, the world can “belong” to us and still remain in the hallowed friendship of Christ the King.
Pope Saint Leo the Great wrote of the temptations of Our Lord, which are read every year at Holy Mass on the First Sunday of Lent, as follows:
Some persons are accustomed to question what Spirit it was of which Jesus was led up into the wilderness, on account of the words a little farther on Then the devil taketh Him up into the holy city and again The devil taketh Him up into an exceeding high mountain. But in truth, and without any searching, we may very fitly take it that we are to believe it was the Holy Ghost Who led Him up into the wilderness; His own Spirit led Him where the evil spirit found Him to tempt Him. When however it is said that He, God and man, was taken up by the devil either into an exceeding high mountain or into the holy city, the mind shrinketh from believing, and the ears of man tingle to hear it. Yet these things we know not to be incredible, when we consider certain other things concerning Him. (Matins, the Divine Office, First Sunday of Lent.)
We must make reparation for our sins as we beg Our Lady for the graces we need to be fortified in the hour of temptation. Sin maketh nations miserable, and there is no electoral way out of chastisement. We must pray and fast, which is why our upcoming season of Lent, for which we are now preparing during this week of Sexagesima, comes, at always, at just the right time for us to “sober up” and start looking at the world through the supernatural eyes of the Holy Faith and nothing else.
In this regard, it is instructive to consider Dom Prosper Gueranger’s reflection on Monday in Sexagesima Week, which focuses on the wretched state into which men had fallen before God punished them by means of the Great Flood:
All flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth. The terrible lesson, then, which men had received by being driven out of paradise in the person of our first parents, had been without effect. Neither the certainty of death, when they would have to stand before the divine Judge, nor the humiliations which attend man’s first coming into this world, nor the pains and fatigues and trials which beset the whole path of life, had subdued men’s hearts or brought them into submission to that sovereign Master whose hand lay thus heavy upon them. They had the divine promise that a Savior should be given to them, and that this Redeemer (who was to be the Son of her that was to crush the serpent’s head) would not only bring them salvation, but would moreover reinstate them in all the happiness and honors they had lost. But even this was not enough to make them rise above the base passions of corrupt nature. The example of Adam’s nine hundred years’ penance, and the admonitions he could so feelingly give who had received such proofs of God’s love and anger, began to lose their influence upon his children; and when he at last descended into the grave, his posterity grew more and more heedless of what they owed to their Creator. The long life, which had been granted to man in this the first age of the world, was made but a fresh means of offending Him who gave it. When, finally, the sons of Seth took to themselves wives of the family of Cain, the human race reached the height of wickedness, rebelled against the Lord, and made their own passions their god.
Yet all this while, they had had granted to them the power of resisting the evil propensities of their hearts. God had offered them His grace, whereby they were enabled to conquer pride and concupiscence. The merits of the Redeemer to come were even then present to divine justice, and the Lamb, slain, as St. John tells us, from the beginning of the world, applied the merits of His Blood to this as to every generation which existed before the great Sacrifice was really immolated. Each individual of the human family might have been just, as Noah was, and like him, have found favor with the Most High; but the thought of their heart was bent upon evil and not upon good, and the earth became peopled with enemies of God. Then it was that it repented God that He had made man, as the sacred Scripture forcibly expresses it. He decreed that man’s life on earth should be shortened, in order that the thought of death might be ever before us. He, moreover, resolved to destroy, by a universal deluge, the whole of this perverse generation, saving only one family. The world would thus be renewed, and man would learn from this awful chastisement to serve and love this his sovereign Lord and God. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year, Monday in Sexagesima Week.)
We know that God will destroy the world with fire, not with water, in His good time, not that of the climatological ideologues.
However, God does continue to send us chastisements because He loves us and wants us to reform our lives by making a good, integral confession of our sins on a regular basis, if possible at this time, of course, and then to do penance for our sins:
And therefore we also having so great a cloud of witnesses over our head, laying aside every weight and sin which surrounds us, let us run by patience to the fight proposed to us: Looking on Jesus, the author and finisher of faith, who having joy set before him, endured the cross, despising the shame, and now sitteth on the right hand of the throne of God. For think diligently upon him that endured such opposition from sinners against himself; that you be not wearied, fainting in your minds. For you have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin: And you have forgotten the consolation, which speaketh to you, as unto children, saying: My son, neglect not the discipline of the Lord; neither be thou wearied whilst thou art rebuked by him.
For whom the Lord loveth, he chastiseth; and he scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. Persevere under discipline. God dealeth with you as with his sons; for what son is there, whom the father doth not correct? But if you be without chastisement, whereof all are made partakers, then are you bastards, and not sons. Moreover we have had fathers of our flesh, for instructors, and we reverenced them: shall we not much more obey the Father of spirits, and live? And they indeed for a few days, according to their own pleasure, instructed us: but he, for our profit, that we might receive his sanctification.
Now all chastisement for the present indeed seemeth not to bring with it joy, but sorrow: but afterwards it will yield, to them that are exercised by it, the most peaceable fruit of justice. Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, And make straight steps with your feet: that no one, halting, may go out of the way; but rather be healed. Follow peace with all men, and holiness: without which no man shall see God. Looking diligently, lest any man be wanting to the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up do hinder, and by it many be defiled. (Hebrews 12: 1-15.)
It is not only for the sins of our nation throughout its sordid history of exporting evils throughout the world that we are being chastised at this time. We are being chastised for our own sins, our lack of fidelity to the truths of the Catholic Faith by our placing trust in everything but the totality of that Faith as the foundation of personal and social order. There has been so much short-sighted emphasis on attempting to "retard evils" by means of the ballot box that we have lost sight of the fact that evil has been advancing exponentially no matter who gets elected.
Father A. J. O'Reilly's description of the historical scene in the middle of the Third Century A.D. should give us a little pause for concern in our day when so many are trying to devise the "grand strategy" to "regroup" politically for the future:
The hour of sunshine and peace is now drawing to a close, and the year 250 opened, even on its first day with one of the most terrible persecutions that the Church had suffered. The blessings and repose of peace had relaxed the morals of the Christians, and it pleased Almighty God to purify them once more by the fire of persecution. The great Bishop of Carthage, who was secreted in exile during the few months that the storm raged, describes the sad causes that drew once more the terrible sword over the Christian community. “Almighty God,” says the great doctor, “wished to prove His family; for the blessings of a long peace had corrupted the divine discipline given to us; our sleeping and prostrate faith roused, if I may so to speak, the celestial anger. And although we deserved more for our sins, yet the clement and merciful Lord so acted that what has passed has been more a probation than a persecution. The whole world was wrapt in temporal interests, and the Christians forgot the glorious things that were done in the days of the apostles; instead of rivalling their brilliant example, they burned with the desire of the empty riches of the world, and strained every nerve to increase their wealth. Piety and religion were banished from the lives of the priests, and fidelity and integrity were no longer found in the ministers of the altar; charity and discipline of morals were no longer visible in their flocks. The men combed their beards, and the women painted their faces; their very eyes were tinted, and their hair told a lie. To deceive the simple, they used fraud and subtlety, and even Christians deceived each other by knavery and underhanded dealing. They intermarried with unbelievers and prostituted the members of Jesus Christ to pagans. They scoffed at their prelates in their pride, and they tore each other to pieces with envenomed tongues, and seemed to destroy each other with a fatal hatred. They despised the simplicity and humility demanded by faith, and permitted themselves to be guided by the impulses of worthless vanity; they contemned the world only in words. Did we not deserve, then, the dreadful horrors of persecution that have burst upon us?” (Father A. J. O’Reilly, Martyrs of the Coliseum.)
Yes, the chastisement during the plandemic is a silver lining in and of itself for which we should be most grateful. The chastisement of the moment is being sent to us in large part to help us find our way out of the strait-jacket that is the Judeo-Masonic lie of naturalism. I know that I have no hope of saving my immortal soul, stained with so many sins over the course of my lifetime, absent the rod of correction which God uses to beat me down into dust and to humiliate me for my stubborn refusal to give my whole heart and soul to Him at all times. We should be grateful for being permitted to live in these challenging times so that the chastisements of the moment may help us to make reparation for our sins as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary so that we will be better able to think, to speak and to act as Catholics at all times as we seek to discharge the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy.
Our Lady's Immaculate Heart will triumph. We simply need to be faithful we accept hardship as the price of our sanctification and salvation:
For which cause I admonish thee, that thou stir up the grace of God which is in thee, by the imposition of my hands. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear: but of power, and of love, and of sobriety. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but labour with the gospel, according to the power of God. (2 Tim. 1: 6-8.)
With our Rosaries prayed well, let us take refuge in the simple fact that millions upon millions who have gone before us marked with the Sign of Faith, that is, the Sign of the Cross, have been willing to embrace that Cross with love, joy and gratitude.
Why can't we in the midst of our own difficulties?
Why can't we?
