Washington DC, USA.

Via Independent.co.uk:

White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Tuesday that a door-to-door canvassing effort begun during the White House’s “Month of Action” in June would be part of the new effort to surge vaccination rates in states where the numbers of Covid-19 vaccinations are lowest.

Ms Psaki said that the campaign would include “targeted, community-by-community, door-to-door outreach to get remaining Americans vaccinated by ensuring they have the information they need about both how safe and accessible the vaccine is”.

    Ronald Reagan: ‘If Fascism Ever Comes to America, It Will Come in the Name of Liberalism’

    1975

    1. Nigel

      “If fascism ever comes to America it’ll come on the form of people telling you free health care is fascism.”

        1. Nigel

          That IS the best medicine! Unless you’re actually sick, in which case it’s useless.

      1. K. Cavan

        Who said that, Nigel?
        The punctuation indicates a quote, if the writer is being honest.
        There’s no such thing as a Free Lunch, we all pay for our healthcare, whether it’s Privitised or Socialised & any adult recognises the exclusivity of Privitised Care AND the Totalitarianism of supply-constrained Socialised Medicine as problems.
        Additionally, Socialised Medical systems cannot & will not survive mass open border immigration & tax-free status for the wealthiest individuals & their corporations.
        Free Healthcare, Santa Claus, no such thing

          Well, in the US a trip to the emergency room can bankrupt you, but its wotrth it to avoid the totalitarianist fascism of healthcare that doesn’t bankrupt you.

    2. Junkface

      Come on, Reagan was a total hypocrite about lots of things and quite clueless on many issues. He did his best to destroy social welfare while in office, even though he admitted later that if it weren’t for social welfare during the great depression, his parents and family would not have survived.

        1. Junkface

          I wasn’t talking about Biden. He has a lot of problems too, you don’t have to pick a side when you are just stating the truth. It is what it is.

          1. General Public

            At least Reagan could string a coherent sentence together and wasn’t accused of rape.

      1. K. Cavan

        In his first term, Reagan cut taxes & spending. Reaganomics, hahaha!
        The economy, predictably, tanked.
        In his second term his people shovelled out the dollars, without reversing the tax cuts & refloated the economy but he exited office having created the single biggest increase in the National Debt of any president.
        Obviously, all that is small beer compared to the current lot, who are back to using projected power to keep their worthless currency & economy afloat.

  2. SOQ

    I think I read yesterday that US vaccination levels is around 36%- is that right?

    They have kind of hit a brick wall now but its not Republican vs Democrats as some of the areas of most resistance are ethnic POC etc.

    1. Cian

      According to OurWorldInData the US has full vaccinated 47% of the population and another 7.5% on one dose.
      This is based on total population, the percentage of adults will be higher (60% fully vaccinated).

      https://ourworldindata.org/explorers/coronavirus-data-explorer?zoomToSelection=true&pickerSort=desc&pickerMetric=total_deaths_per_million&Metric=People+vaccinated+%28by+dose%29&Interval=7-day+rolling+average&Relative+to+Population=true&Align+outbreaks=false&country=~USA

          COVID-19 Vaccines and People of Color- Sherita Hill Golden, M.D., M.H.S.

          People of color might have particular concerns about the vaccines’ safety and effectiveness. Although Black, Hispanic, Native American and other people of color are overrepresented in severe coronavirus disease, vaccine hesitancy among these groups and others can complicate the decision about whether to be vaccinated.

          Institutional racism and historical inequities in health care may also play a role in vaccine hesitancy among African Americans and other people of color. Incidents of the medical establishment endangering the health or betraying the trust of Black patients and research participants have complicated the relationship between the medical establishment and these communities. A historic lack of diversity among health care practitioners and substandard services and care afforded to patients living with poverty can create enduring negative experiences with medical care.

          Vaccine hesitancy among some groups can result from fears that a family member’s immigration status will be under scrutiny, or that the costs of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine will be too expensive. (There is no charge for receiving the COVID-19 vaccines at this time.)

          https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/covid19-vaccines-and-people-of-color

          Of course a quick search of your own would have shown that- if you have been bothered.

          1. SOQ

            Its a well known fact that US POC are generally vaccine hesitant so should be no surprise they are for CoVid-19 too.

            Although at a state level it breaks down more into red and blue but that is despite Trump, not because of him.

          2. E'Matty

            People like Cian ignore the long history in the US of the mistreatment of the black community at the hands of the Medical profession. Tuskegee, the infamous U.S. study of syphilis that left Black men in Tuskegee, to suffer from the disease. Or, the “Asexualization Acts” that led to the sterilization of more than 20,000 California men and women in the 20th Century. A reminder that such eugenics based thinking wasn’t exclusive to Nazi Germany (actually predominantly British in origin, though it was the Anglo American wing who brought it to Hitler’s Universities).

            For example, J. Marion Sims, the “father of modern gynecology,” developed his technique for repairing vaginal fistulae by experimenting on enslaved women, without anesthesia. In his autobiography he recalled operating one woman, Lucy, whose “agony was extreme”; another, named Anarcha, endured 30 such operations at Sims’ hands. (A statue of Sims remained on display in Central Park until 2018, when it was removed under public pressure.)

            The medical abuse of Black people in the name of medicine continued even after their death. Medical colleges paid enslavers and grave robbers alike for bodies of the Black dead, which were then used to teach cadres of young doctors about human anatomy. This practice continued after the end of the Civil War, and stories of “night doctors” who murdered Black Southerners ran rampant amid the larger climate of post-bellum racial terrorism.

            But, they were doctors, medical professionals and administrators and we’re never ever to dare question them. Such positions engender the person with the title “expert which brings with it a high priest-like infallibility, and certainly places such a person beyond the responsibility to ever explain themselves to mere mortals. Those black communities should stop being such conspiracy theorists and tin foil hatters, ignore history and place their health and that of their families without question in the hands of the same medical community. Anything else would be reckless, irresponsible and selfish, or so we’re told…

          3. AssPants

            POC…… really should stop abbreviating for the sake of abbreviating……

            In today’s delicate society, is it a good idea to refer to people who don’t look European as people of color; are they not just people…… I don’t think non people of color are allowed to see other skin tones and if they do, they should just say nothing.

            See this post even “triggered” a CRUDE FILTER; which I think is an internal code for “we will decide what you can and cannot say”

            To the human; which word have you identified as Crude and why, in your opinion is it crude???

          4. Cian

            @E’Matty
            People like Cian ignore the long history in the US of the mistreatment of the black community at the hands of the Medical profession.

            I referred to party preference.
            And then linked to actual data on vaccination updated in different communities.

          5. Nigel

            ‘Those black communities should stop being such conspiracy theorists and tin foil hatters, ignore history and place their health and that of their families without question in the hands of the same medical community.’

            I think your efforts to draw some sort of paralell with the particular mistreatment of black people and other minorities in the US and the weird sense of entitlement of conspiracy theorists like yourself is creepy. At best.

          6. alickdouglas

            In reference to a comment you make below, I’d say vaccine hesitancy for POC is not restricted to the US, it’s an issue in every country where people look seriously. Michael Marmot isn’t really to my taste, but he does a decent enough job of highlighting the impact of racism and structural violence on health in the UK. Epidemiologist colleagues tell me that there are also plenty of indications of similar trends in Europe, although harder to dig up in the literature. I suspect that the public health systems in (continental) Europe are however less focussed on race as a determinant of health than in US and UK, so it’s not as evident in published analysis. However, when public health makes specific efforts to encourage vaccination for POC in the UK, the results for some vaccines are pretty impressive. For the last 10 years or so, the UK govt have specifically targeted pregnant women from specific (racial) backgrounds for a birth dose of HBV, and the vast majority of women at risk (per UK guidelines) were vaccinated, a serious improvement over the previous years. That said, the idea of targeting people for vaccination based on their skin colour is icky, and results aren’t consistent for all vaccines.

          7. E'Matty

            @Alick – did you manage to get to watch the Robert Malone interview and if you did, what did you think?

          8. alickdouglas

            E’Matty, I did, I commented on it yesterday, f_lawless referred to a document that referenced it: we disagree on the conclusion in the most polite manner possible. (as briefly as possible, my main gripe is that most of the relevant numbers from the study have been in the public domain as part of Pfizer’s EPAR since at least February, and Pfizer explictly point out in the EPAR that the radio tags from the vaccine type LNPs are found in the gonads. Pfizer’s opinion is that <0.1% of the administered dose of the LNPs is found in the gonads. f_ remarked that Malone believes this is 'high'. I don't agree with that. He pointed out that one shouldn't take the opinion of an anonymous commenter on the internet (named after a British Prime Minister) very seriously. I don't know who he is referring to of course, but I certainly endorse his opinion.

    No one cares,no one it’s like bad manners discuss Covid,most people now flex,yeah,yeah I got it early in NY/LA was like the flu,partying whole time in Miami…you ?

    In general,life returns in Sept in NY,it’s unbearably humid and hot with another heat wave rolling in,west coast also heating up again,it’s having a devastating effect on farming and low income communities,who are bearing brunt climate change in states.

    I haven’t followed the whole Covid % game,anyone who wants a vaccine in NY/LA has one or has easy access one,free anytime no questions asked,can’t ask for more than that from uncle joe.

    Ps-this is what I care about,heading CT walk some greenhouses,how’s Gino’s bill looking, look another state template on how legalize weed.

      Africa to Become Testing Ground for “Trust Stamp” Vaccine Record and Biometric Digital Payment System

      By Raul Diego, July 19, 2020

      The program, which was first launched in late 2018, will see Trust Stamp’s digital identity platform integrated into the GAVI-Mastercard “Wellness Pass,” a digital vaccination record and identity system that is also linked to Mastercard’s click-to-play system that powered by its AI and machine learning technology called NuData. Mastercard, in addition to professing its commitment to promoting “centralized record keeping of childhood immunization” also describes itself as a leader toward a “World Beyond Cash,” and its partnership with GAVI marks a novel approach towards linking a biometric digital identity system, vaccination records, and a payment system into a single cohesive platform. The effort, since its launch nearly two years ago, has been funded via $3.8 million in GAVI donor funds in addition to a matched donation of the same amount by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

      CEPI’s nCoV-2019 Global Vaccine and the ID2020 Digital Identity Platform

      While CEPI announced the launching of a global vaccine at the Davos World Economic Forum, another important and related endeavor was underway. It’s called the ID2020 Agenda, which, according to Peter Koenig constitutes “an electronic ID program that uses generalized vaccination as a platform for digital identity”.

      “The program harnesses existing birth registration and vaccination operations to provide newborns with a portable and persistent biometrically-linked digital identity”. (Peter Koenig, March 2020)

      The Founding Partners of ID2020 are Microsoft, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) among others.

      It is worth noting the timeline: The ID2020 Alliance held their Summit in New York, entitled “Rising to the Good ID Challenge”, on September 19,2020, exactly one month prior to nCov-2019 simulation exercise entitled Event 201 at John Hopkins in Baltimore.

      Is it just a coincidence that ID2020 is being rolled out at the onset of what the WHO calls a Pandemic? – Or is a pandemic needed to ‘roll out’ the multiple devastating programs of ID2020? (Peter Koenig, March 2020)

      ID2020 is part of a “World Governance” project which, if applied, would roll out the contours of what some analysts have described as a Global Police State encompassing through vaccination the personal details of several billion people Worldwide.

      1. E'Matty

        Nah Cian. Klaus and the lads are more interested in in-body ID systems. By 2026, he claims, we’ll all be chipped. Fancy that. Less than 5 years! “We are talking about chips that can be implanted. When will that be?” the interviewer from the Swiss channel RTS, asked Schwab.

        “Certainly in the next 10 years,” Schwab responded. “And at first we will implant them in our clothes. And then we could imagine that we will implant them in our brains, or in our skin.”

        “And in the end, maybe, there will be a direct communication between our brains and the digital world,” Schwab said. “What we see is a kind of fusion of the physical, digital, and biological world.”

        He said that people will soon be able to say, “I want to connect with anyone now,” to directly link their minds with other people through the “cloud.”

        https://youtu.be/dg6BlXuj8cM

        Cian, what’s your own personal position on this subject?

        1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

          people connected in your head, Jesus it’s bad enough being in the same room with most of them

          1. E'Matty

            your dreams will be open to monitoring, your thoughts shared with the world at all times, privacy a thing of the past. Janet, how could you not see this as a wonderful utopia? You must have some ratlicker blood in your family with that kind of anti science thinking..! :-o

        2. Cian

          I think that people are more likely to choose to disclose their personal information using social media and mobile phone apps than there being a bogey-man that will steal it.

          If we do go end up with “in-body ID systems” people will queue up to buy the latest “iChip” rather than some global government conspiracy to inflict them on us.

          People are funny – they have no qualms with getting a Tesco card (to make savings) but don’t want to get government ID that is actually useful.

          1. K. Cavan

            It’s the strawiest of strawman arguments to compare a Tesco Store Card with the Biometric Social Credit ID system being proposed & indeed implemented.
            Stop being so silly, Cian.

          2. E'Matty

            So, people will essentially choose to go “hands free” and instead have their phones inside their brains. Sounds great, eh? I’ve no doubt many would actually queue up and pay for the privilege. The question becomes, what if you don’t want to? Would you personally opt in yourself Cian?

          3. Cian

            strawman arguments to compare a Tesco Store Card with the Biometric Social Credit ID system being proposed & indeed implemented.

            You are correct. the PSC doesn’t involved giving the government any additional information about yourself but does allow you to access government services online. The clubcard, on the other hand, is providing a smörgåsbord of information for the companies to mine.

          4. Cian

            The question becomes, what if you don’t want to? Would you personally opt in yourself Cian?
            um no. if i didn’t want to I wouldn’t opt in.

          5. E'Matty

            “um no. if i didn’t want to I wouldn’t opt in.” And what if you were told you couldn’t engage with the economy and society without it? Something similar to how different countries might treat vaccines. What’s to say those without chips wouldn’t be precluded from travel, using public transport, accessing retail, bars, restaurants, hotels, live sporting and entertainment events etc… ? Would you condider that a problem?

          6. Cian

            Would me refusing to get the chip endanger other people’s lives? or are you just playing on a slippery slope here?

          7. E'Matty

            @Cian “or are you just playing on a slippery slope here?” hmmm, irony abounds…

    This is what The Times is reporting on the situation in France: government is looking at ways to extend a mandate of the experimental vaccines to all French adults for a virus with a 99.9% survival rate for most people. Surely, unless you’re already hopelessly swept up in all the hysteria, this is a clear indication that something is very wrong with this picture.

    https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/france-enforcing-covid-vaccines-defeat-virus-z56b3kcc7

    “Vaccination against the coronavirus could soon become compulsory for all adults in France — with some suggesting children as young as 12 should be given the jab.

    Jean Castex, the prime minister, has asked MPs and state authorities to propose ways of extending mandatory vaccination to all adults after initially imposing it on healthcare workers.”

      1. Nigel

        I think, I’m not sure because it’s so cunnngly hidden, but the agenda might be to vaccinate the population against covid?

          1. Nigel

            Cleverly pretending to have an agenda to vaccinate the whole country by setting out to vaccinate the whole country. That’s Baldric levels of cunning that is.

          2. General Public

            Not knowing the difference between agenda and ruse equates to baldric levels of hilarity.

          3. Nigel

            The agenda is to vaccinate the country, the ruse is vaccinating the country. Or is it the other way around?

    1. Cian

      Fake news

      France:
      Population: 65,419,732
      Covid deaths: 111,231
      % of population that have had Covid: ?? unknown, but not everyone.
      % of population that died from Covid (so far): 0.17%
      % of population that haven’t died from Covid (so far): 99.82%

      Covid doesn’t have a 99.9% survival rate; even if everyone in France had covid (they didn’t) the survival rate has to be less than 99.9%;

      In fact, one in seven death in France over the last 15 months has been Covid.

        1. SOQ

          From of course- even after being flattened with a bus.

          Now talk about vaccines and the switch gets flipped. Heart attack two minutes after jab? Absolutely no connection.

          Although I see that Insurance companies are saying that people may not be covered. if they drive after having a jab.

        2. Cian

          If you look at excess mortality you can see unexpected/unexplained deaths.
          e.g. US in 2020: 500,000+ excess deaths; 350,000+ Covid deaths; There are 150,000 unexplained deaths – many of these were most likely Covid.

          UK had a similar 72,000 Covid deaths, and 80,000 excess deaths.

          They died due to Covid.
          .

      1. Cui Bono?

        1 year on and you still don’t understand it Cian. You are your own worst enemy.

        You are now also adding 2 separate seasons together too. Does it make it all worth while to see a bigger number of “covid deaths”?

        1. Cian

          Do you remember hearing about World War 2?

          People had a 99.2% chance of surviving that.

          1. GiggidyGoo

            Must have a large supply of straw today Cian. How many strawmen in this thead alone?

      Not yet. That’s the power of foresight.

    The strategy for a huge but gradual reduction in population, in order to meet the UN’s 2030 Carbon reduction & other demands, without panicking the herd or creating the need for mass cremation facilities spewing out more greenhouse gasses, is best achieved by a reasonable number of people dying from October onwards (in Ireland at least), from the effects of normal, seasonal infections, having had their immune systems primed by the current round of injections.

    These deaths will be blamed on variants, additional injections will be mandated & the following Winter, another wave of “variants” will sweep away a portion of the population, creating the need for another round of injections. Thus gradual but huge population reduction is achieved.

    These elites may be psychopaths but they are highly intelligent & have been at this for some time, working out how to replicate the effects of their wars, without the infrastructure damage & general messiness involved in that & finally, when the required number of deaths has been achieved, VC day will be announced.

    Softly, softly, catchee monkey…

    I get a good laugh reading the fruitless and totally ineffective posts by the incredibly gullible “Great Reset”, anti-vaxxers and anti public health and other unscientific nonsense supporters as they are roundly ignored by the good and decent 99.99% of citizens

    It is excellent to see the world wide fight against Corona Virus/Covid being supported by 99.99% of ordinary citizens of every race, hue and colour never mind their wide ranging political affiliations ranging from Chinese communism to Conservative USA.

    It must be incredibly frustrating for the effete, impotent gullible “Great Reset”, anti-vaxxers and anti public health posters on Broadsheet to post daily and witness their total defeat in the face of science and the public good.

    1. E'Matty

      I love how you put “The Great Reset” in commas as if it’s just some imaginary made up “conspiracy theory”. It’s hard to properly gauge your level of stupid but is it the case that you don’t actually believe the Great Reset to be a real thing, i.e. a real agenda being implemented?

      1. Formerly known as @ireland.com

        Please send me to “The Great Reset” homepage if it is real. I prefer to believe that there is a pandemic and governments of all different hues are doing what they can to beat it.

          “Please send me to “The Great Reset” homepage if it is real.”

          Uh, ok, here ya go. https://www.weforum.org/great-reset/

          Here’s a link to Schwabs book on Amazon too.
          https://www.amazon.co.uk/COVID-19-Great-Reset-Klaus-Schwab/dp/2940631123/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?adgrpid=112655877062&dchild=1&gclid=Cj0KCQjwxJqHBhC4ARIsAChq4asg_gqj4WUK9RYtXSbdGvLiX7nTeGtaDx9O941HKeXD5Dh6ojvWK2MaArAwEALw_wcB&hvadid=487052731806&hvdev=m&hvlocphy=1007850&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=873205718598881619&hvtargid=kwd-947851810026&hydadcr=27108_1821783&keywords=klaus+schwab+the+great+reset&qid=1625735454&sr=8-1

          “I prefer to believe that there is a pandemic and governments of all different hues are doing what they can to beat it”. Of course you do, you’re a herd animal. You’ll cling to the comforting delusion as long as you can to avoid facing the uncomfortable reality. The lack of any research or effort to inform oneself from the likes of yourself is why we are where we are. That you actually genuinely seemed to believe that the Great Reset was some made up conspiracy theory just shows how utterly clueless and ill informed your kind are.
