Italy prosecutors seize batch of AstraZeneca vaccine after man dies hours after getting jab | 15 March 2021 | Prosecutors in the northern Italian region of Piedmont said on Monday they had seized a batch of 393,600 shots of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine following the death of a man hours after he had received a jab. The move represents another blow to the image of the AstraZeneca vaccine in Italy and will further hinder the government's anti-coronavirus inoculation campaign. On Sunday Piedmont's regional government suspended use of the batch, ABV5811, after Sandro Tognatti, a 57-year-old music teacher, fell ill and died in circumstances that have not yet been clarified.

NJ Gov. Murphy office warned 'patients will die' before ordering COVID patients into nursing homes - report

NJ Gov. Murphy office warned 'patients will die' before ordering COVID patients into nursing homes - report --'Patients will die,' an administrator reportedly told Murphy's office. | 15 March 2021 | Democratic New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy's office was warned that ordering nursing homes to readmit residents recovering from COVID-19 would lead to unnecessary deaths, a new report reveals. But Murphy went ahead with implementing the order anyway. New Jersey Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli informed hundreds long term care providers on a March 31 conference call that they would soon be expected to readmit COVID-positive nursing home residents, according to the report by New Jersey Advance Media. ...Perichilli was warned by an unnamed administrator that people would "die" should the infected residents be readmitted, according to the report. "Patients will die," the administrator said. "You understand that by asking us to take COVID patients, by demanding we take COVID patients, that patients will die in nursing homes that wouldn't have otherwise died had we screened them out."

I saw this one marching down Broadway from a mile away: Regular booster vaccines are the future in battle with COVID-19 virus, top genome expert says | 15 March 2021 | Regular booster vaccines against the novel coronavirus will be needed because of mutations that make it more transmissible and better able to evade human immunity, the head of Britain's effort to sequence the virus's genomes told Reuters. Sharon Peacock heads COVID-19 Genomics UK (COG-UK) which has sequenced nearly half of all the novel coronavirus genomes so far mapped globally... "We have to appreciate that we were always going to have to have booster doses; immunity to coronavirus doesn't last forever," Peacock told Reuters at the non-profit Wellcome Sanger Institute's 55-acre campus outside Cambridge.

FDA Warns Dr. Mercola to Stop Writing About Vitamin D

FDA Warns Dr. Mercola to Stop Writing About Vitamin D | 15 March 2021 | In the summer of 2020, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) -- a consumer advocacy group partnered with Bill Gates's agrichemical PR group, the Cornell Alliance for Science, and bankrolled by billionaires with ties to Monsanto, the Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Rockefeller Family Fund and Bloomberg Philanthropies -- launched a social media campaign to put an end to Mercola.com... According to the FDA, vitamin C, vitamin D3 and quercetin products are "unapproved new drugs sold in violation of section 505(a) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act." The agency is also listing Mercola.com on its Fraudulent COVID-19 Products page. CSPI president Dr. Peter Lurie, a former FDA associate commissioner, seems to be hinting that he also wants federal authorities to remove my StopCOVIDCold site, where you can download a free scientific report detailing the benefits of maintaining appropriate vitamin D levels to protect against viral infections.

Before COVID, Gates planned social media censorship of vaccine safety advocates with Pharma, CDC, Media, China and CIA

Before COVID, Gates planned social media censorship of vaccine safety advocates with Pharma, CDC, Media, China and CIA --In October 2019, shortly before the COVID outbreak, Gates and other powerful individuals began planning how to censor vaccine safety advocates from social media during a table-top simulation of a worldwide pandemic, known as Event 201. By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. | 12 March 2021 | (Opinion) Over the last two weeks, Facebook and other social media sites have deplatformed me and many other critics of regulatory corruption and authoritarian public health policies. So, here is some fodder for those of you who have the eerie sense that the government/industry pandemic response feels like it was planned -- even before there was a pandemic. The attached document shows that a cabal of powerful individuals did indeed begin planning the mass eviction of vaccine skeptics from social media in October 2019, a week or two before COVID began circulating. That month, Microsoft founder Bill Gates organized an exercise of four "table-top" simulations of a worldwide coronavirus pandemic with other high-ranking "Deep State" panjandrums. The exercise was referred to as Event 201.

Sen. Cruz: US Military 'Launching Political Attacks' Against Tucker Carlson, Requests Meeting | 14 March 2021 | Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said he requested a meeting with the head of the U.S. Marine Corps after one of its units tweeted statements insulting Tucker Carlson, along with unusually bellicose comments about the Fox News host.

The Biggest COVID-19 Vaccine Skeptics? Frontline Health Care Workers By Lawrence Solomon | 11 March 2021 | (Opinion) What do frontline health care workers and first responders know about COVID-19 vaccines that politicians and their public health advisers don't? According to a January analysis by Gallup, 51 percent of health care workers and first responders polled in December were unconvinced of the merits of getting vaccinated, even if the vaccine "was free, available, FDA approved and 90% effective." ...The frontline workers proved to be as defiant as Gallup's survey of their intentions anticipated. In California, over half of Tehama County's hospital workers at St. Elizabeth Community Hospital, an estimated 50 percent of frontline workers in Riverside County, and 20 percent to 40 percent in L.A.

Cuomo administration is ordering homes for disabled to accept COVID patients

Cuomo administration is ordering homes for disabled to accept COVID patients | 11 March 2021 | It wasn't just nursing homes. The Cuomo administration has spent the last year quietly allowing COVID-19 patients to return to homes for the disabled -- much like it did with nursing homes -- and the policy remains in effect. The state's Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) issued a directive on April 10 barring the group homes from denying admission or re-admission to someone "based solely on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19." The order also prohibits the facilities from requiring that a hospitalized individual be tested for COVID-19 before being admitted or re-admitted. At least 552 residents of such homes have died of the virus as of Wednesday. More than 6,900 out of the more than 34,552 who live in the facilities have been infected, the agency said.

DeSantis to Biden: Thought of reinstating COVID-19 restrictions 'insane'

DeSantis to Biden: Thought of reinstating COVID-19 restrictions 'insane' | 12 March 2021 | Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Friday blasted President Biden's warning that the U.S. could need to reinstate certain coronavirus restrictions if the public does not stay "vigilant" about defeating COVID-19. "To even contemplate doing any type of lockdown, honestly it's insane," DeSantis said during a press conference in Florida, touting the state's efforts to administer vaccines to the elderly and other populations. "That's not gonna happen in the state of Florida," the governor continued, referring to reinstating restrictions. "We're gonna continue doing what works, but under no circumstances would we entertain anything of the sort." Biden warned in a prime-time address Thursday night that some restrictions may have to be revisited if current downward trends change and the virus resurges.

Team Cuomo gave group homes a deadly COVID mandate too -- and it's still in effect

Team Cuomo gave group homes a deadly COVID mandate too -- and it's still in effect By Post Editorial Board | 12 March 2021 | (Opinion) It's truly obscene: Gov. Cuomo not only forced group homes for the intellectually and developmentally disabled to take in the COVID-infected, as he did with nursing homes, he has left the group-home mandate in effect even now, months after publicity shamed him into reversing the nursing-home order. The gov and his minions are also still stonewalling on the resulting group-home death toll, too, even after they were forced to admit the truth about homes for the elderly. This makes it obvious that only the Post-led public outcry got Cuomo to drop the nursing-home mandate... The state's Office for People With Developmental Disabilities' directive issued April 10 is strikingly similar to the nursing-home order.

LeDuff told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that his request is "nonpartisan" and should be a simple process of checking a tabulation. "You can't get them. I've been asking for months," he said. "What we want to know [is] what we know from the virus, [that] it kills the institutionalized elderly. That's who it took out. I want to know exactly what has happened." ...LeDuff claims Michigan didn't keep track of COVID counts in state-regulated nursing homes until June, and didn't formally begin tabulating deaths until July.

Gretchen Whitmer could possibly face charges for her early handling of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities during the coronavirus pandemic.

Lucido, a former Republican state senator, appealed to those in the state who may have lost loved ones to the virus who were in nursing homes to seek out information about the deaths... Dana Nessel, the state’s attorney general, is reportedly looking into the state's "nursing home policies," according to ClickonDetroit.com.

3 More EU Countries Hit Pause on AstraZeneca After Reports of Illness and Deaths

3 More EU Countries Hit Pause on AstraZeneca After Reports of Illness and Deaths | 11 March 2021 | Denmark, Norway and Iceland today announced they are joining other European countries in temporarily suspending use of the AstraZeneca-Oxford COVID vaccine following reports of blood clots in people who got the vaccine. Denmark suspended the shots until further notice after a 60-year-old woman died from a blood clot which formed after she was vaccinated, reported Reuters. The Danish decision came days after Austrian authorities announced they were suspending a batch of AstraZeneca's COVID vaccine while investigating the death of one person and the illness of another after receiving the shots. The same batch used in Austria was used in Denmark, according to Reuters. In Austria, a  49-year-old woman died of severe coagulation disorders, and a 35-year-old woman developed a pulmonary embolism -- an acute lung disease caused by a dislodged blood clot -- and is recovering, said the Federal Office for Safety in Health Care (BASG) in Austria.

Their response was also prompted by reports "of possible serious side effects" from other European countries.
