My thanks to Len, D, and Brian for their research, the fruits of which appear here.
Remember: “War” is for the purpose of declaring martial law. Declaring martial law is for the purpose of announcing the fall of the cabal and the return of the Republic.
No need to worry. This is what we’ve been waiting for.
Merck To Sell COVID Pill For 40 Times What It Costs To Make
Joe Martino, The Pulse, October 14, 2021
Both Merck and Pfizer have been developing an antiviral treatment aimed at combatting COVID-19. This week, Merck asked the Food And Drug Administration for emergency use authorization of their new drug intended to treat mild to moderate COVID cases.
Merck’s pill is an antiviral that can be taken at home by patients. It’s designed to interfere with viral replication, reduce symptoms, and increase recovery time – the exact features doctors, patients, and scientists around the world are claiming Ivermectin is already providing COVID patients.
Merck’s case is that at-home treatment for these mild and moderate COVID cases will reduce the chances of overfilling ICU’s, and ease up pressures on healthcare workers. Since vaccine mandates, an already stressed out healthcare force has come under even more stress as millions of healthcare workers globally have refused vaccination and are being fired or put on leave.
What’s causing debate and shock amongst people is the price Merck is intending to charge the US tax payer, through the government, $700 per treatment round even though the cost to produce it is only about $17 per treatment.
Merck’s drug, molnupiravir, is also being manufactured in India where the total cost is about $2.50 per treatment. This puts the total price per treatment at around $20. To be clear, this includes the cost of manufacturing and a profit for all involved. This is 35 times less than Merk’s tax payer asking price.
While Merck and other drug companies will make the case that their drug costs many hours of research and development to produce, it was the tax payer who paid for that to begin with as molnupiravir was discovered at Emory university in the US, which is supported by federal research dollars.
Interestingly, molnupiravir was being developed to treat Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus in horses and humans. In a sense, it’s a horse medication, much like the media claims Ivermectin is.
The reason pharmaceutical companies in the West and parts of Europe can mark up their drugs so much is due to the level of regulation that exists there vs in countries like China or India. In China and India, drug prices are set by the manufacturing price, plus a modest market profit for suppliers and pharmaceutical wholesalers and retailers.
If the government allows Merck to charge this amount, and agrees to use taxpayer dollars to support Big Pharma, treating 100 million Americans over the next two or three years with Merck’s drug will cost taxpayers $700 billion, but only $2 billion if it were $20 as in India and China.
Big Pharma lobby’s the government twice as much as any other industry, this includes Big Oil. One could argue Big Pharma has considerable pull on public policy as a result. Given that Big Pharma spends 75% (over $4.5 billion) of its ad spend on TV networks in the US, TV news is essentially receiving much funding from the pharmaceutical industry.
When considering Big Pharma has massive influence over public policy, and can virtually control most of media messaging through the funding of it, can the average citizen truly trust that government and media are doing what’s best for the people as opposed to what’s best for Big Pharma? What are the implications of this conflict of interest taking place?
New and old therapeutic treatments represent a life saving opportunity for some people. Is it right to price gouge citizens as a result?
The last thing I want to leave you to consider and critique is this. Imagine there was a drug that was very cheap to produce and readily available around the world. The scientists who discovered this drug won a Nobel Peace prize as the drug treated parasitic and viral infections in humans very well. The drug has also been administered billions of times to humans.
The drug is known to be safe, and there’s years of use to show that. During a pandemic, since this drug is an antiviral, doctors begin exploring the possibility of its use in treating COVID. They begin to report it works, perhaps not every time, but that it speeds up recovery and reduces symptoms.
As a citizen, would you want to use this drug? Know about it? Talk about it?
The reality is, the drug I mentioned above exists, it’s called Ivermectin but it is off patent meaning any drug company can make it, which drives the price down immensely.
With all that said, now pretend you are a pharmaceutical company.
Would you consider using your contacts at government and your power over media to create a massive propaganda campaign around how bad and dangerous Ivermectin is, all while creating a drug that does almost the same thing and then charge citizens $700 a treatment?
Consider this, because it’s very likely exactly what’s happening.
John Hopkins Medical Prof Explains: Natural COVID Immunity Is Very StrongArjun Walia, The Pulse, October 15, 2021(https://thepulse.one/2021/10/15/john-hopkins-medical-prof-explains-natural-covid-immunity-is-very-strong/)
Approximately twenty studies have now emerged regarding natural immunity to COVID. All of them point to the fact that natural immunity acquired through a COVID infection can be quite robust. Emphasizing this may seem like a broken record to many independent media journalists, but it’s important to continue to do so given the fact that science continues to go ignored by governments around the world. It doesn’t make sense why natural immunity is not included in health policy decisions.
This point has been emphasized by many experts in the field, including Marty Makary, a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health, editor-in-chief of Medpage Today. Last month he published an article in the Washington Post explaining the following:
More than 15 studies have demonstrated the power of immunity acquired by previously having the virus. A 700,000-person study from Israel two weeks ago found that those who had experienced prior infections were 27 times less likely to get a second symptomatic covid infection than those who were vaccinated. This affirmed a June Cleveland Clinic study of health-care workers (who are often exposed to the virus), in which none who had previously tested positive for the coronavirus got reinfected. The study authors concluded that “individuals who have had SARS-CoV-2 infection are unlikely to benefit from covid-19 vaccination.” And in May, a Washington University study found that even a mild covid infection resulted in long-lasting immunity.
There is even science that has emerged showing that people who have been infected with previous coronaviruses, many of which are the common cold and flu, may also have some sort of protection from severe disease, death and infection. A study published in March 2021 suggests that the majority of healthy adults in British Columbia, Canada, have immunity from COVID-19 despite the fact that some of them have never been infected with it.
The latest study published in Clinical Infectious Diseases found that “SARS-CoV-2-specific cellular and humoral immunities are durable at least until one year after disease onset.” In the future, more studies will emerge that may show longer lasting immunity. The study cut off in this example was one year, but what will happen when they do the same type of study two years after infection? Will we see the same thing?
People who have been infected with SARS, for example, still have a strong a level of antibodies approximately 17 years after being infected.
It’s not just antibodies that provide protection either, alongside antibodies, the immune system produces a battalion of T cells that can target viruses. Some of these, known as killer T cells (or CD8+ T cells), seek out and destroy cells that are infected with the virus. Others, called helper T cells (or CD4+ T cells) are important for various immune functions, including stimulating the production of antibodies and killer T cells.
The science behind natural immunity is quite robust, and if you’d like to see more examples you can do so from an article I previously published in August that goes even more in-depth.
Here’s another great resource from Eric T. Payne, MD, MPH, FRCP(C), Pediatric Neurocritical, Care & Epilepsy Alberta Children’s Hospital, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics & Neurology, the University of Calgary that also touches upon natural immunity, among other things.
It’s good to see this being acknowledged whenever it is. A great example comes from Michigan. Spectrum Health has announced that it will grant temporary exemptions from its employee vaccine mandate to individuals who can provide proof of naturally acquired immunity to COVID-19. Spectrum Health is a large health system with teams of nationally recognized doctors, and is a provider and network of hospitals and other healthcare facilities in Southwest and West Michigan
So, there is the above perspective that isn’t, at all, included in health policy and rarely acknowledged within the mainstream. Large mainstream media outlets share the following perspective instead, as exemplified in a Global News article published at the end of September.
Multiple anti-vaccine groups touted natural immunity as a viable alternative to getting vaccinated, but experts say the natural immunity is unreliable — especially when there’s a safe and effective vaccine out there.
It’s not uncommon for mainstream media to use labels like “anti-vaccine conspiracy theory” and ridicule people, as well as state claims in the name of science that completely contradict what’s been published in medical literature.
Many mainstream media outlets do a very poor job, and this is unfortunate given the fact that the masses rely on these outlets for information. They are literally shaping people’s perception of various topics, and they are very powerful with access to a tremendous amount of resources.
Pharmaceuticals is a very powerful industry, according to calculations by Axios, drug companies make 63 percent of total health care profits in the U.S. That’s in part because of the success of their lobbying efforts.
In 2019, the pharmaceutical industry spent $295 million on lobbying, far more than any other sector in the U.S. That’s almost twice as much as the next biggest spender — the electronics, manufacturing, and equipment sector — and more than double what oil and gas companies spent on lobbying.
Government funds mainstream media, that’s no secret. They also have paid advertisers that include many pharmaceutical companies. Furthermore, several companies, including Johnson & Johnson, DiaSorin Molecular, and QIAGEN have made it clear that they are receiving funding from the Department of Health and Human Services.
Perhaps this is why we only get a one sided story? I hope this discussion helps you understand the power of natural immunity.
I’m not aware of any vaccine out there which will ever give you more immunity than if you’re naturally recovered from the illness itself…If you’ve naturally recovered from it, my understanding as a doctor level scientist is that those antibodies will always be better then a vaccine, and if you know any differently, please let me know.
Dr. Suneel Dhand, U.S. based internal medicine physician.
CDC director Rochelle Walensky has acknowledged on numerous occasions that those vaccinated against COVID can indeed become infected and be as infectious as those unvaccinated. In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Walensky said,
“Our vaccines are working exceptionally well. They continue to work well for Delta with regard to severe illness and death – they prevent it, but what they can’t do anymore is prevent transmission,”
Unvaccinated and vaccinated infected individuals have been shown to have similar viral loads. A recent study, still in pre-print form, found that individuals in Wisconsin, USA had similar viral loads in nasal swabs, irrespective of vaccine status, during a time of high and increasing prevalence of the Delta variant.
The fact is, multiple immunological studies have documented a steady decline of antibody levels among vaccinated individuals. Long-term follow-up of vaccine trial participants has revealed a growing risk of breakthrough infection. Health-care records from countries such as Israel, the United Kingdom and elsewhere all show that COVID-19 vaccines are losing their strength, at least when it comes to keeping a lid on transmissible disease.
There are also many unanswered questions, like what happens to the power of natural immunity with regards to those who have been vaccinated? Can vaccinated individuals still benefit from an infection as much as unvaccinated individuals who acquire an infection?
The CDC is Being Called Out for Covid-19 ‘Statistical Manipulation’ as Lawmakers Press for Grand Jury Investigation
Kyle Becker, Becker News, October 11, 2021
The Centers for Disease Control, after nearly two years of panic-inducing reporting on Covid-19, is finally being called out by lawmakers who are pressing for a grand jury investigation into alleged statistical manipulation by the public health body.
Oregon state Senators Kim Thatcher and Dennis Linthicum, who preside in a state known for some of the most heavy handed Covid policies in the nation, filed a grand jury petition to look into the CDC’s unlawful ‘hyperinflation of death certificate reporting.’ Just the News’ John Solomon recently reported on the development.
The grand jury petition was launched in mid-August, but a public announcement was delayed until mid-September to “protect those involved,” the petitioners Stand for Health Freedom (SHF) said in its announcement.
“The project has been a months-in-the-making combined effort between scientific, legal and public policy experts,” SHF’s release noted. “The letter, submitted exactly one month prior to public release to protect those involved, was addressed to the Honorable Scott E. Asphaug, U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, which stated”:
“What we have learned is worthy of independent State and/or Special Federal Grand Jury Investigation from our vantage point as elected state policy makers. Pursuant to 18 U.S. Code § 3332 – Powers and Duties and the case law cited within the Formal Grand Jury Petition, we respectfully request that the petition and preliminary supportive documentation be presented to the members of the grand jury we are petitioning for immediate deliberation. Public trust in elected officials, the Oregon Health Authority, and our ability to lead the resilient people of Oregon through this crisis has been eroded to an all-time low. The peoples’ trust in their ability to participate in their own governance and be heard by their elected officials is perhaps the most essential element for a thriving free and healthy society. As elected officials it is our sworn duty to uphold the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of Oregon, the tenets of Informed Consent, and honor our legal obligation to comply with 18 U.S. Code § 4 – Misprision of felony. We are fulfilling our duty by calling for a Special Federal Grand Jury Investigation, or at the very least an independent state district-led grand jury investigation convened by a judge, into the issues and evidentiary materials presented.”
Kim Thatcher, one of the Oregon state senators behind the grand jury petition, argued the justifications for the formal investigation.
“Federal agencies like the CDC have committed atrocities in the name of ‘public health,’ resulting in extensive collateral damage that transformed society in ways that we are still grappling to understand,” Thatcher said in an official statement. “The CDC’s unlawful and questionable changes to death certificates related to COVID, the use of false-positive PCR tests and their callous indifference to individual rights—or science, for that matter—led to fraudulent data that was used to justify sweeping policy changes, not only in Oregon, but across the country.”
“I refuse to stand by and watch as our constitutional rights and liberties are endangered by oppressive agencies, which is why I have chosen to take part in this effort to bring forth a petition for a grand jury investigation. Equal protection under the Constitution is still the right of every American,’ Thatcher added.
Another Oregon state senator, Dennis Linthicum, argued that the CDC has committed “pure data manipulation.”
“Plain and simple: the CDC acted illegally in March of 2020, which has led to these current ‘medical’ mandates stemming from the original lynchpin of corrupted data for COVID death certificates,” Linthicum argued. “Our health and the health of our children is our responsibility, not the government’s, yet the CDC, through pure data manipulation, has promulgated government overreach through incredulous policies in unimaginable ways through this wrongful slight-of-hand, creating a falsified reality that has no place in a free society.”
Stand for Health Freedom included a number of supporting documents to testify to its claims, as well as a petition for signatures.
SHF raises one of the most important points about the Covid-19 pandemic: If the CDC is reporting that 94% of Covid-related deaths had serious co-morbidities, and the average age of death is 78 years old (roughly the age of life expectancy), how much of this human toll should be attributed to Covid and how much should be attributed to old age or serious underlying health risks?
It’s a question that is seemingly ignored by public health organizations and the CDC. But it is an issue that requires more attention and transparency. The state lawmakers’ grand jury petition should prompt more investigations into this deadly serious matter, and not just in the state of Oregon, but across the United States.

And: finally, a call to action we can all take: If we all sent this letter out to 10 or 20 businesses we may get them to rethink their policies. A Freedom Fighter sent this out to Fit4Less and got a great response. Hopefully they will rethink their policy.
I just want to clarify something with you. The government has been telling everyone on the news for 18 months that vaccines are not mandatory in Canada. Mandatory vaccinations are illegal in Canada. This is why they are hoping businesses will adopt a mandatory policy… when a business decides to do this they also assume liability. This is the reason the government is not mandating them. They will be sued! They are going to allow businesses to go down for this instead.
The mandate is that every business has a policy. The government did not tell businesses to make a mandatory vaccine policy for customers or employees… they are mandating a vaccine policy. This policy can include everyone without discrimination… you just need a policy. Interpretation is everything.
Multiple times Justin Trudeau stated on the news that there would be enough vaccines for those who want them. That vaccines are not mandatory and will not be forced on people.
Vaccinate or no entry policy is illegal. Vaccinate or be fired is coercion. Coercion and discrimination are illegal in Canada. Most covid vaccinated individuals will also choose not to support your business.
Lastly, If you are aware of how this vaccine works, It does not stop transmission; you can still get the disease whether you are vaccinated or not. You cannot reach herd immunity with a vaccine that does not stop transmission. So why do we believe that mandating vaccines for covid will keep people safe?
The only thing this vaccine does is potentially reduce your symptoms if you should get covid. Therefore it only helps protect the person who gets it. This can also be dangerous because you could be walking around with covid and have no idea that you have it because your symptoms have been suppressed.
Please rethink your policy. I will no longer support your business and many other people are ready to pull out.
