Coronavirus Covid-19 Research History – April 11 to April 15, 2022

2022-04-12 COVID Vaccines Aren’t Working — And No Amount of Boosting Will Change That We’ve gone from “two mRNA jabs will ensure you won’t carry the virus or get sick or die of COVID” to “you need a booster every four months and you can still contract, transmit, get sick and die of COVID.” At this rate, we’re looking at three injections per year, and the fully-jabbed and boosted are still getting sick with COVID. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/covid-vaccines-arent-working-boosting-change/

2020-04-12 #StopTheTreaty: Act Today to Stop WHO’s Disastrous Power Grab We have less than 24 hours to stop the World Health Organization’s proposed “global accord on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response,” a plan that would strip nations of the right to determine their own health policies in the event of a pandemic. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/stopthetreaty-act-today-stop-who-disastrous-power-grab/

2020-04-12 ‘The System Is Rigged’: The Anatomy of Big Pharma’s Political Reach With their long, sordid history, pharmaceutical companies incentivize doctors to prescribe their products through financial rewards. Thanks to their astronomical profit margins, the pharmaceuticals and health products industry is able to spend more on lobbying than any other industry in America. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/system-rigged-big-pharma-political-reach/

2022-04-12 Axios-Ipsos Poll: Most Americans Say COVID Is No Longer a Crisis Less than one in 10 Americans now describe COVID-19 as a crisis — with about three in four calling it a manageable problem and one in six saying it’s no problem at all — according to the latest installment of the Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index. These sentiments — and the public’s growing desire to be done with mask mandates and other restrictions — raise significant challenges for public health officials in managing new surges and could create real political headwinds ahead of the midterms. https://www.axios.com/2022/04/12/axios-ipsos-poll-most-americans-say-covid-is-no-longer-a-crisis

2022-04-12 How Can Schools Combat the COVID Slide? Bullying Prevention Is the Best Place to Start Thus far, much of the discussion surrounding the pandemic‘s lingering impacts has centered on learning loss, which has resulted in testing declines of as much as six percentile points in reading and 12 percentile points in math in grades three through eight. But the more important story might not be what’s down due to the pandemic but rather what’s up. Because as test scores drop, reports of mental health problems are on the rise — and you can’t address learning loss if students are overwhelmed by challenges outside the classroom. Over the past two years, many schools have reported elevated levels of anxiety, stress and behavioral problems among students. Perhaps most troubling of all is an increase in reports of bullying as more kids take their anger and frustration out on peers and exacerbate a problem that was already reaching epidemic proportions before the pandemic. Just a few years ago, 90% of students in fourth through eighth grades had already reported being bullied or harassed. Of that overwhelming majority, 41% believed it would happen again. https://www.newsweek.com/how-can-schools-combat-covid-19-slide-bullying-prevention-best-place-start-1696985

2022-04-12 How Media Turns Bad Science Into ‘News’ Mainstream media often make the case for vaccinating kids by pointing to studies published in prestigious journals — but without doing any due diligence on the quality or validity of the study they are reporting on. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/media-turns-bad-science-news/

2022-04-12 CDC Under Fire for COVID Response, Launches Internal Review The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Monday launched a comprehensive agency-wide review and evaluation following criticism of the agency’s response to COVID-19, but political commentators Kim Iversen and Robby Soave expressed doubt the process would bring about change. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/cdc-under-fire-covid-response-internal-review/

2022-04-11 Exclusive: Son Describes Mother’s Death After Moderna Shot In an exclusive interview with The Defender, Jeffrey Beauchine said his mother, Carol, knew her Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease was related to the Moderna shot. Watching her death was like “something you see out of a movie,” he said. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/exclusive-son-describes-mothers-death-moderna-shot/

2022-04-11 With COVID Mission Over, Pentagon Plans for Next Pandemic One of the key lessons learned was the value of small military teams over mass movements of personnel and facilities in a crisis like the one wrought by COVID-19. In the early days of the pandemic, the Pentagon steamed hospital ships to New York City and Los Angeles and set up massive hospital facilities in convention centers and parking lots, in response to pleas from state government leaders. The idea was to use them to treat non-COVID-19 patients, allowing hospitals to focus on the more acute pandemic cases. But while images of the military ships were powerful, too often many beds went unused. Fewer patients needed non-coronavirus care than expected, and hospitals were still overwhelmed by the pandemic. A more agile approach emerged: having military medical personnel step in for exhausted hospital staff members or work alongside them in additional treatment areas in unused spaces. https://apnews.com/article/covid-health-army-pandemics-30ed7838294b3afcfdf3defa2f4d10c0

2020-04-11 Fauci Admits Defeat: Says COVID Here to Stay, People Need to ‘Calculate Individual Risk’ While President Joe Biden campaigned on a promise to “shut down the virus, not the economy,” Dr. Anthony Fauci — the highest-paid employee in the U.S. government — was taking a much more cautious approach — suggesting that COVID might never go away. And with Washington, DC, now a superspreader party town for the far-less deadly Omicron strain, Fauci has now explicitly thrown in the towel on trying to rid the world of COVID-19 — telling ABC’s “This Week” that the virus is here to stay, and people will just have to decide what level of risk they’re willing to take. “This is not going to be eradicated and it’s not going to be eliminated,” Fauci told host Jonathan Karl. “What’s going to happen is that we’re going to see that each individual is going to have to make their calculation of the amount of risk that they want to take in going to indoor dinners and in going to functions, even within the realm of a green zone map of the country where you see everything looks green but it’s starting to tick up.” “We’re going to have to live with some degree of virus in the community,” Fauci continued, adding that “the best way to mitigate that, Jon, is to get vaccinated.” Yes, a vaccine developed for a completely different strain that wanes in protection just six weeks after the receipt of a fourth dose, according to a recent Israeli study. https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/fauci-admits-defeat-says-covid-here-stay-people-need-calculate-individual-risk

2022-04-11 COVID: Suspended B.C. Doctor on Speaking Tour Warns Parents About Vaccinating Their Kids A doctor suspended by the College of Physicians and Surgeons for allegedly disseminating false narratives about COVID-19 is on a speaking tour of the B.C. Kootenays to warn parents about the risks of vaccinating kids. Dr. Stephen Malthouse, a family practitioner on Denman Island, has joined a pair of other dissenting doctors in recent speaking engagements in Nelson, Castlegar and Trail to present data they say indicates the risk to children from COVID-19 is “statistically zero” and that vaccines are the bigger risk for that age group. Malthouse and Drs. Sophia Bayfield and Kevin Sclater spoke over the weekend to what they said were full houses. Their “key message is that the risk to children under the age of 19 for the COVID-19 virus itself is statistically zero. Yet the dangers of the COVID-19 shot for the same age group are significant, including myocarditis, stroke, arrhythmias of the heart and even death.” https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/covid-nw-doctor-speaking-tour-warns-parents-vaccinating-kids

2022-04-11 100,000+ Documents Reveal Disturbing Details About High-Risk Gain-of-Function Experiments An investigative report by Vanity Fair contributor Katherine Eban, based on more than 100,000 EcoHealth Alliance documents, shows a disturbing reality of “murky grant agreements, flimsy NIH oversight and pursuit of government grants by pitching increasingly risky global research.” https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/documents-reveal-disturbing-details-gain-of-function-experiments

2022-04-11 Comedians Following ‘the Money Trail,’ Not ‘the Courage Trail,’ JP Sears Tells RFK, Jr. In an appearance on “RFK Jr. The Defender Podcast,” comedian JP Sears said any good joke is rooted in truth, but big-name comedians are now “narrative-based” rather than “truth-based.” https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/comedians-following-money-not-courage-jp-sears-rfk-jr/

Coronavirus Covid-19 Research History – April 6 to April 10, 2022

2022-04-10 Your Next COVID Vaccine Will Be Different After deploying four COVID-19 shots in a little more than two years, the nation is absorbing a troubling realization: That’s a pace that’s impossible to sustain. This past week, experts began charting a path to a future that is less perfect – but more practical. It means building a vaccine that targets more than one strain of the virus. It would reduce severe disease and death, but not prevent every infection. If the design is changed, all vaccines will be updated. Manufacturers will likely offer the same vaccine formulation to everyone, rather than a mélange of different products for different people on different schedules. And the goal is to have it ready by next fall when the risk of illness is likely to soar. That’s a very tight deadline. “If we settle down to one shot per year that combines COVID and flu, I think that will be sustainable,” said UC San Francisco infectious disease expert Dr. Peter Chin-Hong. “Nobody will want to get a vaccine every six months,” he said. “So we have to change the strategy.” https://www.mercurynews.com/2022/04/10/your-next-covid-19-vaccine-will-be-different/

2022-04-10 A 7-Foot-Tall Robot at Dallas Love Field Is Watching for Unmasked Travelers and Curbside Loiterers Yes, those 7-foot-tall machines at Dallas Love Field are watching you. They want to make sure you’re wearing a mask if you’re boarding a flight or not parking too long at the curb if you’re picking up a returning traveler. Love Field is testing two Security Control Observation Towers at the airport, one near baggage claim and another near security checkpoints, to figure out whether robotic assistants can both help customers get around and warn passengers who are breaking rules. The robots can also call airport security and operations in case more help is needed. Airports have been at the forefront of technology, including facial recognition and other biometrics, for years, a trend that worries privacy advocates who say there are few, if any, laws or guidelines about how emerging technology should be used. Amazon took criticism in 2019 after testing its Rekognition technology with police departments before deciding to ban law enforcement from using it two years later. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/a-7-foot-tall-robot-at-dallas-love-field-is-watching-for-unmasked-travelers-and-curbside-loiterers/ar-AAW0cdz

2022-04-08 Cardiac Disorders Account for 20% of 1.2 Million Injuries Reported After COVID Vaccines, VAERS Data Show VAERS data released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention included a total of 1,217,333 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID vaccines, including 26,699 deaths and 217,301 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020, and April 1, 2022. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/cardiac-disorders-injuries-reported-covid-vaccines-vaers-data/

2022-04-08 FDA advisors call for an end to never-ending booster shots as they try to map out a strategy for living with COVID On Wednesday, an independent advisory committee to the US Food and Drug Administration — the agency entrusted with ensuring the country’s COVID-19 vaccine supply is not only safe but also useful and well-updated — met to discuss the future of COVID-19 vaccines and boosters. Dr. Peter Marks, who directs the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (the arm of the FDA that is in charge of regulating all vaccines) acknowledged the current COVID vaccine strategy of boost-every-few-months with the original vaccine recipe — based on virus sequenced from Wuhan, China in early 2020 —  is not sustainable. Already, successful COVID-19 vaccine makers including Moderna and Pfizer are charting their next moves against the virus, without any direction from the federal government. A more cohesive national strategy for new vaccines is needed, the FDA committee members said. Tailoring vaccines too tightly to circulating variants, which change over the course of weeks and months, is a futile strategy that will lead vaccine makers to “miss the boat,” committee member Dr. Michael Nelson, chief of the asthma, allergy and immunology division at UVA Health, said. https://www.businessinsider.com/fda-us-strategy-for-covid-boosters-new-vaccines-2022-4

2022-04-08 U.S. Firm With Ties to WEF, DOD Implicated in Bioweapons Cover-Up As evidence of a potential bioweapons cover-up begins to emerge, a company called Metabiota, whose founder is a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader graduate, is gaining prominence. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/u-s-firm-with-ties-to-wef-dod-implicated-in-bioweapons-cover-up/

2022-04-08 ‘Get Used to It’: Outbreaks Give Taste of Living With Virus The U.S. is getting a first glimpse of what it’s like to experience COVID-19 outbreaks during this new phase of living with the virus, and the roster of the newly infected is studded with stars. Cabinet members, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Broadway actors and the governors of New Jersey and Connecticut have all tested positive. Outbreaks at Georgetown University and Johns Hopkins University are bringing back mask requirements to those campuses as officials seek out quarantine space. Ali Mokdad, a professor of health metrics sciences at the University of Washington in Seattle, expects the high level of U.S. immunity built up from previous infections and vaccinations will protect the nation from a large surge. “We’re going to have some infections here and there, but it’s not going to shut down the country,” Mokdad said. “Life has to go on. We have to be vaccinated and boosted. We need to protect the vulnerable, but we have to get used to it.” https://apnews.com/article/covid-living-with-virus-outbreaks-26ce89a748b27b3a47730d29a947237a

2022-04-08 COVID-cautious freak out at CNN medical analyst for urging large events to ‘still go on’ CNN Medical Analyst Dr. Leana Wen said Thursday in a Washington Post column and corresponding Twitter thread that “our new normal” regarding COVID-19 should involve allowing individuals to assess their “own risks” and no longer canceling potential “superspreader” events. Prominent Twitter users, including doctors and liberal journalists, accused Wen of “dangerous,” “repulsive” messaging that is “killing” people in response. The controversy started with her article commenting on the recent Washington, DC, Gridiron Club dinner which led to an outbreak of COVID among D.C. politicians. Rather than admonish people who would dare attend large events like these during a pandemic, Wen, formerly the head of Planned Parenthood, explained that we’ve come to a “new normal” in which people should “be thoughtful about their own risks” and be allowed to make their own decisions. She concluded her Twitter posts, stating, “accepting that #COVID19 infections will be part of our lives doesn’t mean that we are giving up. Rather, it means acknowledging that we finally have the tools to live with it, and that people will make different choices from our own.” https://www.foxnews.com/media/covid-cautious-freak-cnn-medical-analyst-urging-large-events-still-go-on

2022-04-08 Moderna Recalls Thousands of COVID Vaccine Doses in Europe Moderna Inc. (MRNA.O) said on Friday it was recalling 764,900 doses of its COVID-19 vaccine made by its contract manufacturer Rovi (ROVI.MC) after a vial was found contaminated by a foreign body. No safety issues have been identified, Moderna said about the lots that were distributed in Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Sweden in January. The drugmaker said the contamination was found in just one vial, and it was recalling the whole lot out of “an abundance of caution”. It did not disclose what was found in the vial. Japanese authorities last year suspended the use of some doses of the vaccine, which Moderna later recalled after an investigation found stainless steel contaminants in some vials. https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/moderna-recalls-thousands-covid-vaccine-doses-2022-04-08/

2022-04-07 NJ Gym Owners Who Defied COVID Lockdowns Have Their Business License Restored The owners of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, New Jersey, had their business licenses restored, nearly two years after they made nationwide headlines for defying New Jersey’s COVID lockdowns. Atilis co-owner Ian Smith and co-owner Frank Trumbetti kept Atilis open to the public for the past two years, despite the revoked license, operating off of donations and merchandise sales. Smith claimed that as a result of not complying with lockdown orders, he and Trumbetti received more than 90 citations, along with ten gym members who received citations; 9 criminal charges; that both he and Trumbetti were arrested, as well as one member; that local police changed the locks on the building, backed up their plumbing, and eventually boarded up the gym; that they were fined $15,497.76 every day they remained open, for 5 months; that $173,000 in fundraising for their legal defense was seized by the state; and that they owe more than $300,000 in legal bills. https://www.dailywire.com/news/nj-gym-owners-who-defied-covid-lockdowns-have-their-business-license-restored

2022-04-07 Washington Elite Faced With a Growing Resurgence of COVID Infections On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi became the latest high-profile Washington dignitary to test positive for COVID-19. Pelosi, 82, is currently asymptomatic, according to a spokesperson for her office. “The Speaker is fully vaccinated and boosted, and is thankful for the robust protection the vaccine has provided,” the spokesperson said Thursday. She said Pelosi received her second booster shot last month. Pelosi’s positive test comes amid a flurry of other positive cases among individuals who attended the elite Gridiron Club Dinner in Washington on Saturday. As of midday Thursday, at least 32 guests at Saturday’s dinner have tested positive for COVID-19, Tom DeFrank, the president of the Gridiron Club, told ABC News https://abcnews.go.com/US/washington-elite-faced-growing-resurgence-covid-19-infections/story

2022-04-07 Joe Rogan Blows up on People Who Call for Censorship on Social Media Joe Rogan said nothing drives him more crazy than people who are calling for censorship on social media, arguing that when people insist on removing thoughts they disagreed with that’s “not discourse, that’s propaganda.” During “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast Tuesday, the host spoke with playwright and filmmaker David Mamet, and the two talked about what can be done to stop censorship on sites like TwitterFacebook and YouTube. The two also discussed how people calling for censoring of things they disagree with are pushing toward an “authoritarian dictatorship.” It starts at the 44:24-minute mark of the show here. The host and Mamet talked about how people celebrated “certain people” getting removed from Twitter — like Alex Jones and Milo Yiannopoulos. Rogan said that even back then he had warned people where this kind of thing would lead. “Do you understand that once they start censoring for what they believe is something that’s objectionable … it’s going to keep going further and further,” Rogan shared. “And they are going to keep moving the goal post.” https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/bb-thats-propaganda-rogan-censorship-social-media/

2022-04-07 Hospital Refuses Father-to-Son Kidney Transplant Over COVID Jab A 9-year-old boy is being denied a life-saving kidney transplant because his father is not vaccinated against COVID-19. Dane Donaldson was found to be a perfect match for his son Tanner back in early 2018 by the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital before the outbreak of the pandemic. The family decided to wait a little longer before having Tanner undergo the transplant since transplanted kidneys from a live donor only lasted about 20 years. Then COVID-19 hit and put a freeze on the procedure. Now the hospital is refusing to perform the life-saving father-to-son kidney transplant it agreed to do nearly four years ago over the senior Donaldson’s unvaccinated status. In a statement released to The Epoch Times, the Cleveland Clinic cited a 2021 policy it adopted requiring all donors and candidates for organ transplants to be fully vaccinated against the virus. https://www.theepochtimes.com/hospital-refuses-father-to-son-kidney-transplant-over-covid-jab_4384193.html

2022-04-06 Numerous Health Problems More Likely Because of COVID Vaccines Than Coincidence: VAERS Data Analysis Various health problems reported by people after receiving one of the COVID-19 vaccine shots are more likely to have been caused by the vaccines than to be coincidental, according to an analysis of data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). VAERS has been flooded with more than 1 million reports of various health problems and more than 21,000 death reports since the introduction of the vaccines in late 2020. Some experts and public officials have downplayed the significance of the reports, noting that just because a health problem occurs after getting the vaccine doesn’t mean the problem was caused by it. However, a deeper analysis of the data indicates that many of the adverse effects are more than just a coincidence, according to Jessica Rose, a computational biologist who’s been studying the data for at least nine months. “The safety signals being thrown off in VAERS now are off the charts across the board,” Rose told The Epoch Times. https://www.theepochtimes.com/numerous-health-problems-more-likely-due-to-covid-19-vaccines-than-coincidence-vaers-data-analysis_4380017.html?

2022-04-05 CNN Misleads Parents, Follows Mainstream Script to Push Vaccines for Young Kids Mainstream media is following a tried-and-true script to push vaccine uptake. Now that COVID-19 vaccines are authorized for children ages 5 to 11, we can expect more disingenuous and misleading commentary designed to reinforce the “safe and effective” messaging — this time our children are the targets. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/cnn-misleads-parents-push-vaccines-kids/

2022-04-05 West Virginia Removes Dozens of Deaths From COVID Count West Virginia has removed dozens of deaths from its official COVID-19 count after a review found nearly all of them were not related to the coronavirus, health officials said Tuesday. The Department of Health and Human Resources said Bureau for Public Health epidemiologists completed what it called a reconciliation process for 2021 that looks at all COVID-19 death reports. Of the 3,948 deaths reported in 2021, 122 deaths, or 3%, were determined not to be virus-related. In addition, five duplicate deaths from last year were identified during the reconciliation process and three additional deaths from 2020 were determined not to be from COVID-19 and taken off the state’s dashboard. https://apnews.com/article/covid-health-wv-state-wire-west-virginia-public-health-bb478a54d45dcc56e2858002fe23a77e

2022-04-05 COVID Vaccines Will Soon Be Available for Kids Under 5. Experts Worry Many Parents Won’t See the Need. What’s worse for public health officials staring down a possible new wave of infections from another Omicron subvariant called BA.2 is the fear other parents won’t see a need to get their kids vaccinated when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorizes it for children under age 5, as soon as April. ​​The percentage of fully vaccinated Americans has stagnated at about two-thirds. Just under half of those eligible have gotten a booster dose. Federal regulators authorized a second booster last week for older and immunocompromised people, but it’s unclear how many people will want those either. Children remain the least protected with about 35% of parents of those aged 5 to 11 choosing to vaccinate their kids since they became eligible in November. Children have largely weathered the virus, with about 12 million reported cases and fewer than 1,000 deaths.

2022-04-05 Pfizer Hired 600+ People to Process Vaccine Injury Reports, Documents Reveal Pfizer hired about 600 additional full-time employees to process adverse event reports during the three months following authorization of its COVID-19 vaccine, with plans to hire 1,800 more by June 2021, newly released documents reveal.

Remarking upon this newly revealed information, Brian Hooker, chief scientific officer of Children’s Health Defense, told The Defender: “The rollout of the Pfizer vaccine has led to an unprecedented number of adverse events reported — 158,000 adverse events in the first two-plus months of the rollout means that the rate of reported AE [adverse events] was approximately 1:1000, with many of the AEs graded as serious. This is based on a denominator of 125,000,000 vaccines distributed. “It is no wonder that an army of 1,800 individuals was needed to process all of the information.”

Hooker noted the total number (1,205,755) of COVID vaccine adverse events reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System between Dec. 14, 2020 and March 25, 2022, now eclipses the total number (930,952) of adverse events reported in the 32-year history of the database. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/pfizer-hired-600-people-vaccine-injury-reports/

2022-04-04 COVID Vaccines Don’t Prevent Transmission, Severe Illness or Deaths, Data Show All we have to do is look at high-quality epidemiological data to get to the truth — COVID-19 vaccines aren’t preventing COVID or its transmission, and they aren’t preventing severe illness or death. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/covid-vaccines-dont-prevent-transmission-severe-illness-deaths-data/

2022-04-04 As Many as 40% of Those Who Died of COVID Had Diabetes and Experts Hope That Will Lead Policymakers to Address the Disease Somewhere between 30% to 40% of those who died from COVID-19 in the U.S. had diabetes, and health experts are hoping that could lead policymakers to pay more attention to the disease, The New York Times reported. “It’s hard to overstate just how devastating the pandemic has been for Americans with diabetes,” Dr. Giuseppina Imperatore, who oversees diabetes prevention and treatment at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told the paper in a story published on Sunday. According to data from the National Institute of Health, diabetes draws less funding than diseases like cancer and heart disease despite impacting 37 million Americans. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention found that the number of adults diagnosed with diabetes more than doubled in the past 20 years and 96 million Americans have prediabetes. https://www.businessinsider.com/as-many-40-died-of-covid-19-had-diabetes-2022-4

2022-04-04 We Need to Be Developing Vaccines for the Next Pandemic — Right Now While the COVID-19 vaccines were developed in record time — Moderna’s mRNA shot took just a weekend for its initial design — and extraordinary, innovative studies found effective treatments quickly as well, neither was fast enough to outrun the virus’s exponential growth. COVID-19 will not be the last disease with the potential to grow into a pandemic. To fight the next one, we need to have a game plan to speed up the search for and deployment of vaccines and treatments. Such a plan would launch research and development efforts targeting pathogens with pandemic potential, stand up an infrastructure to accelerate the testing of candidate vaccines and antivirals, and pump funding into both. https://www.vox.com/22937351/next-pandemic-vaccine

2022-04-04 FDA Says COVID Vaccines May Need to Be Updated to Ensure High Level of Effectiveness Against Virus The currently approved COVID-19 vaccines may need an update to ensure a high level of protection as the virus continues to evolve, according to the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA, in a briefing document published ahead of an advisory committee meeting this week, said scientists still don’t entirely understand COVID variants and the effectiveness of the vaccines. For example, mutations to the spike protein, which is used by the virus to invade human cells, have reduced the effectiveness of current vaccines. That’s because today’s COVID shots were developed to target the spike protein in the original strain of the virus that emerged in Wuhan, China in late 2019. The FDA’s advisory committee of outside vaccine experts on Wednesday will discuss how the U.S. can develop a transparent process to make recommendations about changing the composition of the current ones if needed. Pfizer and Moderna are conducting clinical trials on vaccines based on the Omicron variant, the dominant version of the virus worldwide. The effectiveness of Pfizer or Moderna’s two-dose vaccines against mild illness from Omicron dropped from 70% to just 10% 25 weeks after the second shot, according to the U.K. Health Security Agency. https://www.cnbc.com/2022/04/04/fda-says-covid-vaccines-may-need-to-be-updated-to-ensure-high-level-of-effectiveness-against-virus.html

2022-4-04 How Pandemic Caused Long Delays in Diagnosis, Treatment for Kids With Autism During the early months of the pandemic, many families canceled in-home services, fearing infection.

2022-04-01 Mega-Rich Got So Much Richer During Pandemic the English Language Didn’t Have a Word to Describe Them The word “billionaire” didn’t even exist until 1844.

2022-04-01 ‘Not Surprising to See, but Sad’: Experts Alarmed by Large Number of Teens Experiencing Emotional Abuse The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new statistics on high school students’ mental health. Among its findings was an alarmingly high number of U.S. teens reporting emotional abuse at home: more than half. Defined by the survey as being sworn at, insulted or put down by a parent or other adult in their home, 55 percent of the more than 7,700 high school students polled said they had experienced emotional abuse. The survey responses, which were collected in the first half of 2021, asked about experiences in 2020, which included the height of pandemic-related lockdowns. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/not-surprising-see-sad-experts-alarmed-large-number-teens-experiencing-rcna22377

2022-04-01 Class-Action Lawsuit Challenges Firing of 66 Unvaccinated Workers at Akron Children’s Hospital Akron Children’s Hospital is “confident” that its firing of dozens of unvaccinated employees will withstand a federal class-action lawsuit. And the attorney making a First Amendment issue of the matter is already preparing for an appeal. The lawsuit names two lead plaintiffs: certified surgical technologist Brian Tessane and help desk worker Richard Brimer. Tessane worked five years at Akron Children’s Hospital and Tessane for two years before each was let go in late January, about two weeks after missing the hospital’s deadline for all staff members to get their initial COVID-19 vaccine shot. The plaintiffs, according to the lawsuit, were denied “reasonable accommodations” due to their Christian faith. Mendenhall said his clients were ultimately forced “to choose between violating their sincerely held religious beliefs or losing their jobs.” https://www.beaconjournal.com/story/news/2022/04/01/class-action-lawsuit-filed-akron-childrens-hospital-vaccine-mandate-highland-tavern-fired-employees/7221494001/

2022-04-01 Fauci Flashback: ‘The Most Potent Vaccination Is Getting Infected Yourself’ Throughout the pandemic, a large contingency of doctors, researchers and non-mainstream media outlets have been pounding the table over natural immunity as an alternative to vaccination to protect against COVID-19, with the obvious conclusion that vaccine passports are moot if a large percentage of the population has a higher degree of protection than even the vaccinated because they’ve already had the disease. And as time has gone on, ‘the science’ has validated this theory — with even Bill Gates admitting recently that “the virus itself, particularly the variant called Omicron, is a type of vaccine.” Yet, the official U.S. government response — led by Dr. Anthony Fauci and echoed worldwide — has excluded virtually all mention of natural immunity as a relevant mitigation against COVID-19, which would of course render vaccination, booster shots and vaccine passports moot for tens of millions of Americans. And so, with Fauci pretending like he’s never heard of natural immunity for the past two years, here’s a flashback to the ‘good doctor’ explaining that “The most potent vaccination is getting infected yourself.” https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/fauci-flashback-most-potent-vaccination-getting-infected-yourself

2022-04-01 17-Year-Old Died ‘Suddenly in Sleep’ 6 Months After 2nd Pfizer Shot VAERS data released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention included a total of 1,205,755 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID vaccines, including 26,396 deaths and 214,521 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020, and March 25, 2022. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/17-year-old-died-6-months-after-2nd-pfizer-shot/

Congress is two weeks away from the month-long August recess. House appropriators this week are advancing numerous fiscal year 2023 appropriations bills. At the same time, the Select Committee to Investigate the Jan. 6th Attack on the Capitol is holding its 8th public hearing set to focus on former President Trump’s dereliction of duty that day. On the other side of the Capitol, Senators continue to move towards both a possible reconciliation bill and a bill to bolster chip manufacturing in the U.S.

Progressive Playbook

CLIMATE AND CLEAN, HEALTHY COMMUNITIES

Whether we are Black or White, Latino or Asian, newcomer or Indigenous, we all want our families to grow up healthy, happy and safe for generations to come. But for too long, fossil fuel CEOs and corrupt politicians have divided and distracted us with lies while they pollute our air and poison our water. They exploit their workers, while dumping toxins into Black, brown and low-income neighborhoods. By coming together, we can heal the damage done to all of our communities, and power our future with locally produced renewable energy that creates millions of good union jobs in the process.

FAST FACTS

House 

House Floor

The House will vote on ten suspension bills from the Committees on Natural Resources and Foreign Affairs. Suspension bills require a ⅔ majority to pass. For a list of all suspension bills being considered, click here

The House will also consider the following bills, subject to rules:

H.R. 8294 – Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, Agriculture, Rural Development, Energy and Water Development, Financial Services and General Government, Interior, Environment, Military Construction, and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act, 2023 (Rep. DeLauro – Appropriations): The bill combines six annual spending bills into one “minibus” appropriations bill, with a total topline figure of around $560 billion. The minibus would provide the large increases sought by President Joe Biden in his budget request, which proposed a 14% overall increase for nondefense programs. 

H.R. 8373 – Right to Contraception Act (Rep. Manning – Energy and Commerce): The bill would make law the right for people to obtain contraceptives and for health care providers to provide contraceptives. The bill would also protect a range of contraceptive methods, devices, and medications used to prevent pregnancy, including but not limited to oral contraceptives, emergency contraceptives, and intrauterine devices.

Issues to Watch

Reconciliation Talks

Last week, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced that he would not presently support a reconciliation bill that contains the climate, energy, or tax provisions sought by President Biden, citing the June inflation figures. Instead, he is willing to support a bill that allows Medicare to negotiate drug prices and extends Obamacare subsidies for two years. While the timeline remains unclear, the Senate might be able to move forward with a bill as early as next week once the legislative text to lower prescription drug prices is approved by the Senate Parliamentarian. If this happens, the bill would undergo a week-long “vote-a-rama,” where Senators will attempt to amend the bill before a final Senate vote. The House, which is expected to break on July 29 for the August recess, will then have to pass the same bill. The reconciliation instructions are set to expire at the end of this fiscal year, making September 30 the hard deadline for any reconciliation bill. 

January 6th Committee Public Hearings

The House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the Capitol is continuing their public hearings this week. On Thursday, the Committee is expected to focus on the timeline from when the attack on the Capitol began to when former President Donald Trump told his supporters to leave the complex. This hearing will be the eighth in the series so far, but the Committee will continue its investigation until the release of their report expected this fall. 

House Unionization 

Staffers from eight different congressional offices are expected to file petitions with the Office of Congressional Workplace Rights to form unions today. This follows the successful passage of H. Res. 1096 in May, which grants congressional staff the right to organize and bargain collectively with protections. It is important to note that only House staffers will have the ability to unionize with protections from retaliation. The Senate would have to pass their own resolution allowing Senate staff the same protection.

Meanwhile, the paper ignored news earlier this month that a documentary producer discovered the individual likely responsible for tanking a key, systematic review showing how ivermectin could have saved millions of lives. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/wsj-misleads-public-ivermectin/

2022-03-30 Chinese City Orders All Indoor Pets Belonging to COVID Patients in One Neighborhood to Be Killed A Chinese city ordered all indoor pets belonging to COVID-19 patients in one neighborhood to be killed. The Anci District of Langfang city, in northern China, on Wednesday ordered the “complete culling of indoor animals” of coronavirus patients, the state-run China News Service reported. The work had stopped by 5 p.m. local time Wednesday, the China News Service reported, citing a staff member for the Langfang Center for Disease Control and Prevention. It is not clear how many animals were killed. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that pets can get COVID-19 from humans but that the risk of pets spreading the disease to people was “low.” Hebei province, where Langfang is located, recorded hundreds of new daily COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, China’s CDC reported. https://www.businessinsider.com/china-langfang-district-says-kill-covid-patients-pets-2022-3

2022-03-29 FDA Authorizes Fourth Pfizer and Moderna COVID Vaccine Doses for 50 and Older The Food and Drug Administration has authorized fourth Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccine doses for everyone age 50 and older, amid uncertainty over whether an even more contagious version of Omicron will cause another wave of infection in the U.S. as it has in Europe and China. The FDA also said it authorized a second Pfizer booster shot for people age 12 and older who have compromised immune systems, and a second Moderna booster for adults ages 18 and older with compromised immune systems. The new boosters are administered at least fourth months after the last shot. The FDA made the decision without a meeting of its vaccine advisory committee, a rare move the agency has made more frequently over the course of the pandemic to expand the uses of already-approved COVID vaccines. Dr. Paul Offit, a committee member, criticized the drug regulator for moving forward without holding an open meeting where the American public can hear experts weigh the data and make a recommendation to the FDA about the best path forward. “It’s just sort of fait accompli,” Offit said of the FDA authorization. “So is this the way it works? We talk endlessly about how  we follow the science — it doesn’t seem to work out that way.” https://www.cnbc.com/2022/03/29/fda-authorizes-fourth-pfizer-covid-vaccine-dose-for-people-age-50-and-older-.html

2022-03-28 Biden Proposes $81.7 Billion in Spending to Prepare for Future Pandemics President Biden’s budget proposal released Monday calls for $81.7 billion over five years to prepare for future pandemics, in what would be a major investment in boosting the country’s readiness for future threats. However, the president’s budget is only a proposal, and any new funding for pandemic preparedness would require congressional approval. The president’s budget calls for $40 billion for the development and manufacturing of vaccines, treatments and tests aimed at future threats. Another $28 billion would go to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for surveillance, lab capacity and the public health workforce. The National Institutes of Health would get $12.1 billion for research on vaccines and other measures, while the Food and Drug Administration would get $1.6 billion for its labs and information technology. https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/600002-biden-budget-proposes-817b-to-prepare-for-future-pandemics/

2022-03-28 WHO Examining Potential Hearing Problems Linked to COVID Vaccines The World Health Organization is examining rare reports of hearing loss and other auditory issues following COVID-19 vaccinations. People who reported tinnitus ranged in ages from 19 to 91, and nearly three-quarters were women. The reports came from 27 countries, including Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States. More than a third were reported among those working in the healthcare industry. There is no known cause for tinnitus, and so far, there is no proof that the vaccines may cause any hearing problems, according to the WHO, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and companies that manufacture the vaccines. A spokesperson from Pfizer later told NBC News that the company found “no causal association” between its COVID vaccine and reports of tinnitus. https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/examining-potential-hearing-problems-linked-covid-vaccines-rcna21911

2022-03-25 National Geographic Asks: Why Is It So Hard to Compensate People for Serious Vaccine Injury? Vaccine injury compensation in the U.S. is broken, according to Tara Haelle, an independent science and health writer. In an article for National Geographic, Haelle outlined some of the flaws in existing programs, and what might be done to fix them. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/why-hard-compensate-people-vaccine-injury/

2022-03-25 NYC Won’t Rehire Unvaccinated Workers, Mayor Says New York City Mayor Eric Adams said Thursday that his administration would not rehire unvaccinated city workers. Around 1,400 city employees were fired earlier this year for failing to comply with the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Adams said, during a news conference at Citi Field, he did not plan to rehire them.  “Not at this time,” he said, according to The Wall Street Journal, “We are not reviewing if we are going to bring [them] back.” He also thanked the more than 340,000 city employees who have been vaccinated, recognizing them for “[standing] up and [doing] the right thing.” https://www.foxnews.com/health/new-york-city-wont-rehire-unvaccinated-workers

2022-03-25 664 Reports of Myocarditis in 5- to 17-Year-Olds After COVID Shots, VAERS Data Show VAERS data released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention included a total of 1,195,396 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID vaccines, including 26,059 deaths and 211,584 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020, and March 18, 2022. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/myocarditis-kids-after-covid-vaccine-vaers-data/

2022-03-24 Why Don’t Kids Get COVID Badly? Scientists Are Unraveling One of the Pandemic’s Biggest Mysteries Scientists are still somewhat baffled as to why children are not badly affected by COVID, although studies are slowly shedding light on how, and why, children’s responses to COVID differ from those among adults. “A number of theories have been suggested, including a more effective innate immune response, less risk of immune over-reaction as occurs in severe COVID, fewer underlying co-morbidities and possibly fewer ACE-2 receptors in the upper respiratory epithelium — the receptor to which SARS-CoV-2 [COVID] binds,” Dr. Andrew Freedman, an academic in infectious diseases at the U.K.’s Cardiff University Medical School, told CNBC in emailed comments, adding that nonetheless the phenomenon was not “fully understood.” He noted more research will be required before we have a definitive answer but a body of evidence has already emerged showing that COVID poses a much smaller risk to kids, and why that might be. https://www.cnbc.com/2022/03/24/why-dont-kids-get-covid-badly-scientists-are-starting-to-understand.html

2022-03-24 HHS Sued by Watchdog for Info on COVID Vaccine Side Effects: ‘Unlawful Stonewall’ Legal watchdog Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit Thursday against the Department of Health and Human Services after the department did not provide requested information and communications about COVID-19 vaccine side effects. The lawsuit comes after the Food and Drug Administration was unresponsive to Judicial Watch’s Aug. 30, 2021 FOIA request that asked for all emails “sent to and from members of the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee regarding adverse events, deaths and/or injuries caused by investigatory vaccines for the prevention or treatment of SARS-CoV-2 and/or COVID-19 currently produced by Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and/or Johnson & Johnson.” The FDA never got back to the group with the requested records by the Oct. 18, 2021 deadline, according to the lawsuit filed Thursday. The government accountability group said that, through their lawsuit, is aiming to “promote transparency, integrity, and accountability in government and fidelity to the rule of law” and provide more information to the American people on any other possible side effects of the vaccine. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/judicial-watch-sues-hhs-coronavirus-vaccine

2022-03-24 NYC Employee Unions Bash Mayor Adams’ Plan to Roll Back COVID Vaccine Mandates for Athletes but Not Cops, Teachers It’s a slam dunk for Kyrie Irving — and still a potential pink slip for city workers. The NYPD’s biggest union slammed Mayor Adams’ plan to lift the city’s private-sector vaccine mandate for athletes and performers, charging the city created a double-standard to clear the Brooklyn Nets unvaccinated star for action inside the Barclays Center even as nine police officers who declined to get jabbed were fired.

“If the mandate isn’t necessary for famous people, then it’s not necessary for the cops who are protecting our city in the middle of a crime crisis,” fumed Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch in a Thursday statement. “I’m not surprised,” said Lieutenants Benevolent Association head Lou Turco. “It is hypocritical to allow an athlete not to get vaccinated while forcing police officers to get vaccinated to keep their jobs. We’re told the vaccination mandate is necessary because they’re following the science. Where is the science that supports immunity if you’re able to make free throws or throw a baseball 95 miles an hour?” A United Federation of Teachers spokeswoman echoed the police unions’ opposition. “The city should not create exceptions to its vaccination requirements without compelling reason,” the spokeswoman said https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/ny-nypd-union-bashes-vaccine-mandate-plan-20220324-m3ntcpq4kjgjhh3nduukedsqeu-story.html

2022-03-24 Biden Seeks $22.5 Billion for ‘Boosters for All,’ as Some Lawmakers Push Back White House officials Monday said Congress must allocate another $22.5 billion in COVID pandemic relief to avoid imminent cuts to treatment and vaccine availability, but some key Republicans said they want a fuller accounting of the trillions of dollars the administration has already spent on the coronavirus response. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/biden-boosters-for-all-lawmakers-push-back/

2022-03-24 95% of Committee Members Advising on U.S. Dietary Guidelines Had Ties to Big Pharma, Big Food Describing their findings as “particularly worrisome,” the authors of a study published Monday in Public Health Nutrition noted that in the U.S., the Dietary Guidelines for Americans form “the foundation for all national nutrition programs,” which amount to nearly $100 billion annually. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/committee-advising-u-s-dietary-guidelines-big-pharma-food/

2022-03-23 Moderna to Seek Authorization for COVID Shots for Kids Despite No Proven Efficacy Against Omicron Moderna Wednesday announced it will soon request Emergency Use Authorization for its pediatric COVID vaccine. The company said the majority of COVID cases observed during its pediatric clinical trials were mild, making it impossible to detect the vaccine’s protective effect against the worst outcomes. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/moderna-authorization-covid-shots-kids-no-proven-efficacy/

2022-03-23 Big Tech Profit Model ‘Fundamentally at Odds’ With Kids’ Well-Being, Advocates Say Calling Big Tech’s profit-maximizing business model “fundamentally at odds with children’s well-being,” a broad coalition of 60 leading advocacy groups urged Congress on Tuesday to enact stronger online protections for young people. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/big-tech-profit-model-kids-well-being/

2022-03-23 A Judge on New York State’s Highest Court Is Unvaccinated and Could Be Removed From the Bench A judge on New York State’s highest court could face removal from the bench for failing to comply with the state’s COVID vaccination mandate, according to court guidelines and state officials. Jenny Rivera, an associate judge on the state Court of Appeals, has participated remotely in the court’s activities since the fall, when the state court system’s vaccination mandate took effect and unvaccinated employees were barred from court facilities.

She is now one of four state judges who face referral to the state’s Commission on Judicial Conduct, according to a person familiar with the process who spoke on background to discuss a personnel matter. The commission could move to admonish Judge Rivera, or remove her from the bench. On Monday, Lucian Chalfen, a spokesman for New York’s Unified Court System, said court administrators told 156 court employees — along with the four judges — that they failed to meet qualifications for employment, and if they do not comply with the vaccination requirements in the next two weeks they would be fired. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/03/23/nyregion/jenny-rivera-unvaccinated.html

2022-03-22 Get the Jab or Pay More for Health Insurance? While health insurance companies cannot deny health insurance to someone on the basis of vaccination status, those who don’t get the COVID vaccine could face increased costs — similar to smokers, who also pay a premium for health insurance coverage. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/covid-jab-pay-more-health-insurance/

2022-03-22 Pfizer COVID Vaccine for Kids 5 – 11 Fails FDA Standard for 50% Efficacy Based on a small study, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Pfizer’s COVID vaccine — after just under two months — was 31% effective at preventing “symptomatic and asymptomatic” COVID in 5- to 11-year-olds. But how effective was the vaccine at four or six months? https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/pfizer-covid-vaccine-kids-fails-fda-standard-efficacy-2/

2022-03-22 New Taxpayer-Funded Ads Push COVID Shots for Young Kids The Biden administration launched a taxpayer-funded advertising campaign featuring leading healthcare professionals urging parents to vaccinate their young children against COVID. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/taxpayer-funded-ads-push-covid-shots-kids/

2022-03-21 DC Removes Tens of Thousands of Deaths ‘Accidentally’ Attributed to COVID The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on March 14 removed tens of thousands of deaths linked to COVID-19, including nearly a quarter of deaths it had attributed to children, blaming an algorithm for “accidentally counting deaths that were not COVID-19-related.” https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/cdc-removes-tens-of-thousands-deaths-covid/

2022-03-21 ‘We Have Essentially Turned a Blind Eye to Our Own Children for Decades’ We are deep in the grip of a children’s mental health crisis. That’s one belief that everyone in our deeply divided country seems to share. The headlines have been terrible: “8-Year-Olds in Despair.” “Their Tank is Empty.” “No Way to Grow Up.” Parents are frustrated, terrified — and increasingly angry.

Those with the loudest voices and the biggest platforms all appear to agree: The children’s mental health crisis is a consequence of COVID-era political decisions — the child-sacrificing outcome of too-rigid social distancing, too-lengthy school closures and too much mask-wearing. “The pandemic’s disruptions have led to lost learning, social isolation and widespread mental health problems for children,” the New York Times’s David Leonhardt summed up back in January in a much-quoted newsletter. “Many American children are in crisis — as a result of pandemic restrictions rather than the virus itself.” There is a huge body of research that consistently and unambiguously shows that children’s mental health in the United States was already really bad before the pandemic. https://www.washingtonpost.com/magazine/2022/03/21/childrens-mental-health-crisis-politicization/

2022-03-21 Fact-Checker Claims COVID Deaths Underreported. Here’s Why They’re Wrong. Health Feedback, a “fact-checking” organization, is part of a World Health Organization project called Vaccine Safety Net. It operates under the umbrella of Science Feedback, whose partners and funders include Facebook and the Google News initiative. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/fact-checker-covid-deaths-underreported-why-theyre-wrong/

2022-03-21 Pfizer CEO Pushes Yearly COVID Shots. Not So Fast, Experts Say When Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said March 13 that all Americans would need a second booster shot, it struck many COVID experts as a self-serving remark without scientific merit. It also set off spasms of doubt over the country’s objectives in its fight against the coronavirus. The decision on how often and widely to vaccinate against COVID-19 is part science, part policy, and part politics. Ultimately it depends on the goals of vaccination at a time when it’s becoming clear that neither vaccines nor other measures can entirely stop the viral spread. The vaccines’ protection against COVID infection generally wanes within several months in all age groups. But experts disagree on whether frequent boosters, especially for younger people, can do anything about that. Two or three vaccinations protect most people from serious disease — but do relatively little to prevent infection, which is generally mild or asymptomatic, after three or four months. https://khn.org/news/article/pfizer-ceo-albert-bourla-yearly-covid-shots/

2022-03-21 Producer of ‘Kiss the Ground’ Tells RFK, Jr: Regeneration Is Our Path Forward In an interview on “RFK Jr. The Defender Podcast” with John Roulac, founder of Nutiva, a natural products company, Robert F.

2022-03-21 Judge Rules 11-Year-Olds Can’t Get Vaccines Without Parents’ Consent The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on March 18 granted a preliminary injunction prohibiting the mayor of the District of Columbia, the D.C. Department of Health and D.C. public schools from enforcing a law allowing children 11 and older to be vaccinated without parental consent. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/judge-rules-eleven-year-olds-vaccines-parents-consent/

2022-03-21 4th COVID Shot Offers Little Protection Against Infection, Israeli Study Shows Researchers at Sheba Medical Center conducted a small study that found the efficacy of a fourth dose of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 mRNA vaccines resulted in only marginal protection from SARS-CoV-2 infection. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/4th-covid-shot-little-protection-infection-israeli-study/

2022-03-21 Five important Lawsuits CHD is excited to share the news that a U.S. federal district judge has issued an order prohibiting enforcement of the District of Columbia’s Minor Consent for Vaccinations Act which allowed children as young as 11 to receive vaccines without the knowledge or consent of their parents. This returns the age of consent for vaccination back to 18. This is an important win for the children, their families, and for freedom.

In the opinion issued on Friday, March 18, the court found the parents likely to succeed on the merits in their arguments that the D.C. Act is unconstitutional for two reasons. First, the D.C. Act is preempted by federal law because it directly contradicts the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. The D.C. Act also violates the right to free exercise of religion guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution. This ruling may set a precedent for other cases and the protection of religious rights.

The Plaintiffs overcame a high legal hurdle that “threatened injury must be certainly impending” as established by the U.S. Supreme Court precedent Clapper v. Amnesty Int’l., in part by the use of a drawing entitled “Peer Pressure,” drawn by one of the plaintiff’s children. The drawing depicts the dilemma children face at school when they do not want to get the COVID vaccine or have been advised by their parents not to take the shot. 

Your support has allowed us to pursue critical legal initiatives that we believe hold the most promise to maintain our Constitutional rights as citizens of this country. While the judge’s ruling in this case is a victory, CHD has many other legal cases that need your continued support. CHD has over 40 cases in progress. Here are just a few of them:
 

  • CHD v. FDA CHD has two separate cases against the FDA: one in Tennessee for its “bait and switch” licensing of Pfizers’s Comirnaty vaccine when only Emergency Use Authorization vaccines are available, and one in Texas regarding FDA’s authorization of COVID shots for kids ages 5-11.
     
  • Merck Gardasil Injury Cases CHD is currently supporting 14 cases filed on behalf of young men and women who suffered severe adverse events following Gardasil vaccination. One young woman’s case, Robi v. Merck, is now in discovery.
     
  • CHD v. Facebook, Zuckerberg & Fact Checkers CHD alleges that Facebook, Zuckerberg and their fact checkers colluded with the government to censor CHD and engaged in financial malfeasance. The case is on appeal in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
     
  • Mercola et al  v. Warren Dr. Mercola and Mr. Cummins, authors of a book about COVID-19, with a forward by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., sue Senator Elizabeth Warren, who publicly urged Amazon to deplatform the book for alleged “misinformation” in federal district court in Washington. We expect a hearing soon. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/press-release/childrens-health-defense-wins-federal-district-court-injunction-on-district-of-columbias-minor-consent-for-vaccinations-act/?

Coronavirus Covid-19 Research History – March 16 to March 20, 2022

2022-03-19 Amici for Freedom and the Fate of Free Speech What will be the fate of free speech in the United States? The answer is coming soon from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in Netchoice v. Paxton. Last year, Texas protected free speech from Big Tech censorship by passing a statute finding that the largest social media platforms are “common carriers” and barring them from discriminating against speech on grounds of viewpoint.

Rather than comply with the Texas law, the social media platforms secured a preliminary injunction against its enforcement. A district court judge granted the injunction, saying the anti-discrimination regulation violated the social media platform’s First Amendment rights. It is no surprise that Texas is appealing the injunction, taking the question up the ladder to judges who will give it more serious attention. We depend on dissent to hold ourselves accountable. The freedom to tell the truth — even more fundamentally, the freedom to speak even if it turns out to be in error — is the foundation of modern society. It is the crucible of our science, literature and politics. It is part of the give and take of life itself. So it is worth fighting for. https://www.newsweek.com/amici-freedom-fate-free-speech-opinion-1689168

2022-03-18 Fauci Warns Americans Could Face More Lockdowns Amid Spread of New COVID Variant Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, warned Americans this week that they could soon face additional COVID-19 lockdown measures should a new strain of the virus cause case numbers to increase. Fauci, who also serves as an adviser to President Biden, said the BA.2 subvariant could soon increase the rate of infections in America. He suggested that Americans should “be able to pivot” back and forth between a more common way of life and the measures that were taken in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus at the height of the pandemic.

“We can’t just say, ‘We’re done. We’re going to move on.’ We’ve got to be able to be flexible because we’re dealing with a dynamic situation,” he added, noting the new variant to be less fatal than the Omicron variant. “The overall mortality is actually down. It’s a very interesting situation where the cases are going up, but it does not, at this point in time, appear to be any degree of severity.” During the segment on CNN, Fauci seemingly dismissed concern over the crippling economic burdens associated with lockdown measures or other precautions. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/fauci-warns-americans-could-face-more-lockdowns-amid-spread-of-new-covid-19-variant

2022-03-18 Moderna, Pfizer Push For 4th Doses Despite Only Minor Benefits in Study Both Pfizer and Moderna are asking the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to allow adults to receive a second COVID-19 booster, as a study downplaying its effectiveness is released. On Thursday, Moderna announced it has submitted a request to the FDA to allow for an amendment to the emergency use authorization, so those aged 18 and over can receive a fourth shot. The move follows on from Pfizer and BioNTech, who sought a similar emergency authorization for a second booster shot of their vaccine for adults aged 65 and older. The requests arrive as a study conducted at the Sheba Medical Centre in Tel Aviv, Israel, found that Israeli healthcare workers who received a fourth shot at the height of the spread of the Omicron variant only received marginally more protection than those who received just three. https://www.newsweek.com/booster-shot-vaccine-covid-omicron-pfizer-moderna-1689406
