If humans never existed CO2 concentration would be the same as it is today

If humans never existed then the global average atmospheric CO2 concentration would be the same as it is today. The total amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is independent of source of the CO2 and primarily dependent on ocean surface temperature. The amounts of CO2 in both air and ocean are determined by a ratio in Henry’s Gas Law, which is dependent on water temperature as well as underlying ocean chemistry and physics. 

This does not imply that the atmosphere is free of anthropogenic CO2. CO2 from all sources is heavily mixed in air and ocean. Two giant fluxes of CO2 over 90 gigatonnes each (see graphic), absorption of CO2 into ocean water surface and emission of CO2 from ocean surface water, each flux 10 times larger than human CO2 emission, are mixed with human fossil fuel emission. Estimates of human CO2 emission are from about 5 to about 8 gigatonnes per year.

All CO2 emissions are continuously and chaotically mixed in air and ocean. Ocean is about 98% of the hydrosphere, which includes all of the water on earth.  Ocean is about 70% of the surface of the earth. The graphic below which is supported by the UN IPCC estimates that 1020 gigatonnes of CO2 are in the surface of the ocean. Each year about 90 gigatonnes of atmospheric CO2 from all sources is mixed with 1020 gigatonnes of CO2 in the surface of the ocean. The surface of the ocean at a temperature controls atmospheric CO2 concentration. Cold water absorbs CO2. Warm water exits CO2.

The addition to the atmosphere of CO2 from burning fossil fuels does not change the total amounts of CO2 in the atmosphere or in the ocean. Excess CO2 precipitates as a solid carbonate and becomes stone, for example limestone.

Human-produced CO2 is not responsible for global warming or cooling, or global greening, or glaciers melting, or polar bears, or social justice or any of the other claims either against it or favoring it.

“There is no climate emergency.” (William Happer and Richard Lindzen, National Review, 16 April 2021.)  “Stop treating it [i.e. AGW…human-caused global warming/climate change] as a worthy opponent.  Do not ascribe reasonableness to the other side.  It is not reasonable, not true, not even plausible.” (Richard Lindzen, 31 March 2021.

A straight line relationship exists between ocean surface temperature and net CO2 concentration in air

A straight line relationship exists between ocean surface temperature and net CO2 concentration. 

“An experience curve relating actual atmospheric CO2 levels with actual global average sea surface temperature. It is not a time scale, just the simple relation between two physical parameters independent of time. The line shown is the sequence of actual plotted points for each end month of the two moving averages. The range of temperature is quite small and it is reasonable to use a linear trend line. The correlation is remarkable and would be considered a perfect correlation in laboratory tests. It is emphasized that the chart presents recent data and is just a plot of actual experience.”

NOVAVAX launches non-genetic Covid-19 vaccine showing high efficacy and safety

“Regarding the NOVAVAX INC COVID-19 vaccine which is in the news today, if you have questions about the nature of the product, please see the corporate webpage for a summary of the technology, product, and clinical data. This link should help you to get the answers you are looking for. Credit where credit is due, Stan, Glen, team Novavax (and BMGF). I believe that NOVAVAX INC is partnered via the Covax Vaccine initiative, so this one should be more readily available in the emerging economic regions of the world. Basically, this vaccine is manufactured using caterpiller cell culture, and uses an adjuvant manufactured from the bark of a small shrub/tree as I recall. So a case can be made that it is a more natural product than some others. 90+% efficacy for a more traditional vaccine (not a genetic vaccine) is exceptional. The safety data should be carefully compared to the genetic vaccines to see if we can disentangle adverse effects which may be attributed to free spike protein or the novel mRNA molecule and lipids being used in the mRNA vaccines (Moderna, Pfizer/Biontec, Curevac?). Also, in theory, we should not be seeing the coagulation issues clearly associated with the rAdV vaccines (J&J, Sanofi). This will be a fascinating opportunity to tease out these different aspects of post-COVID genetic vaccine syndrome safety signals. Data. Transparency. Honesty. Independent oversight. This is what the public deserves at this point and must insist on, in my opinion.” review by Robert Malone, MD, MS

  • 93% efficacy against predominantly circulating Variants of Concern and Variants of Interest
  • 91% efficacy in high-risk populations
  • 100% efficacy against variants “not considered Variants of Concern/Interest”
  • All COVID-19 hospitalizations/death occurred in the placebo group
  • Company to host investor conference call today at 8:30 am ET

GAITHERSBURG, Md., June 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Novavax, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVAX), today announced that NVX-CoV2373, its recombinant nanoparticle protein-based COVID-19 vaccine, demonstrated 100% protection against moderate and severe disease, 90.4% efficacy overall, and met the primary endpoint in its PREVENT-19 pivotal Phase 3 trial. The study enrolled 29,960 participants across 119 sites in the U.S. and Mexico to evaluate efficacy, safety and immunogenicity, with an emphasis on recruiting a representative population of communities and demographic groups most impacted by the disease.

“Today, Novavax is one step closer to addressing the critical and persistent global public health need for additional COVID-19 vaccines. These clinical results reinforce that NVX-CoV2373 is extremely effective and offers complete protection against both moderate and severe COVID-19 infection,” said Stanley C. Erck, President and Chief Executive Officer, Novavax. “Novavax continues to work with a sense of urgency to complete our regulatory submissions and deliver this vaccine, built on a well understood and proven platform, to a world that is still in great need of vaccines.”

The company intends to file for regulatory authorizations in the third quarter, upon completion of the final phases of process qualification and assay validation needed to meet chemistry, manufacturing and controls (CMC) requirements. Upon regulatory approvals, Novavax remains on track to reach manufacturing capacity of 100 million doses per month by the end of the third quarter and 150 million doses per month by the end of the fourth quarter of 2021.

“PREVENT-19 confirms that NVX-CoV2373 offers a reassuring tolerability and safety profile,” said Gregory M. Glenn, M.D., President of Research and Development, Novavax. “These data show consistent, high levels of efficacy and reaffirm the ability of the vaccine to prevent COVID-19 amid ongoing genetic evolution of the virus. Our vaccine will be a critical part of the solution to COVID-19 and we are grateful to the study participants and trial staff who made this study possible, as well as our supporters, including the U.S. Government.”

Results: Consistent, high efficacy among circulating variants

In the placebo-controlled, observer-blinded study randomized 2:1, NVX-CoV2373 demonstrated overall efficacy of 90.4% (95% CI: 82.9, 94.6), achieving its primary endpoint. Seventy-seven cases were observed: 63 in the placebo group and 14 in the vaccine group. All cases observed in the vaccine group were mild as defined by the trial protocol. Ten moderate cases and four severe cases were observed, all in the placebo group, yielding a vaccine efficacy of 100% (95% CI: 87.0, 100) against moderate or severe disease.

Efficacy endpoints were accrued from January 25 through April 30, 2021 — a time when the Alpha (B.1.1.7) variant, first identified in the U.K., became the predominant strain in the U.S. Other strains, including Variants of Interest (VoI) and Variants of Concern (VoC), were also on the rise during the PREVENT-19 endpoint accrual window. Click here for CDC definitions of variants.

Sequence data are available for 54 of the 77 cases. PREVENT-19 met its key secondary endpoint, demonstrating 100% efficacy (95% CI: 80.8, 100) against variants not considered VoC/VoI. Of the sequenced cases, 35 (65%) were VoC, 9 (17%) were VoI, and 10 (19%) were other variants. Against VoC/VoI, which represented 82% of the cases, vaccine efficacy was 93.2% (95% CI: 83.9, 97.1), achieving a key exploratory endpoint of the study. Thirty-eight of the VoC/VoI cases were in the placebo group and 6 were in the vaccine group.

NVX-CoV2373 also showed success among “high-risk” populations (defined as over age 65, under age 65 with certain comorbidities or having life circumstances with frequent COVID-19 exposure): vaccine efficacy was 91.0% (95% CI: 83.6, 95.0), with 62 COVID-19 cases in the placebo group and 13 COVID-19 cases in the vaccine group.

Results: Reasserting a favorable safety profile

Preliminary safety data from PREVENT-19 showed the vaccine to be generally well-tolerated. Serious and severe adverse events were low in number and balanced between vaccine and placebo groups. No single adverse event term was reported by more than 1% of participants. In assessing reactogenicity 7 days after Dose 1 and Dose 2, injection site pain and tenderness, generally mild to moderate in severity, were the most common local symptoms, lasting less than 3 days. Fatigue, headache and muscle pain were the most common systemic symptoms, lasting less than 2 days.

Study Endpoints

The primary endpoint for PREVENT-19 was the first occurrence of PCR-confirmed symptomatic (mild, moderate or severe) COVID-19 with onset at least 7 days after the second dose in serologically negative (to SARS-CoV-2) adult participants at baseline. The statistical success criterion included a lower bound of 95% CI >30%.

Novavax expects to share further details of the PREVENT-19 trial results as additional data become available. Further analyses of the trial are ongoing and will be shared via preprint servers as well as submitted to peer-review journals for publication.

The placebo-controlled portion of PREVENT-19 continues in adolescents from 12 to less than 18 years of age, which recently completed enrollment with 2,248 participants.

Variant Virus Strains

The CDC has defined Variant of Interest (VoI) as a variant with genetic markers that have been associated with changes to receptor binding, reduced neutralization by antibodies generated against previous infection or vaccination, or predicted increase in transmissibility or disease severity. A Variant of Concern (VoC) is defined as a variant for which there is evidence of an increase in transmissibility, more severe disease, significant reduction in neutralization by antibodies generated during previous infection or vaccination, reduced effectiveness of treatments or vaccines, or diagnostic detection failures.

About PREVENT-19

PREVENT-19 (the PRE-fusion protein subunit Vaccine Efficacy Novavax Trial | COVID-19) is a 2:1 randomized, placebo-controlled, observer-blinded study to evaluate the efficacy, safety and immunogenicity of NVX-CoV2373 with Matrix-M™ adjuvant in 29,960 participants 18 years of age and older in 119 locations in the United States and Mexico, compared with placebo.

PREVENT-19 is being conducted with support from the U.S. government, including the Department of Defense, the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), part of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) at HHS. BARDA is providing up to $1.75 billion under a Department of Defense agreement.

About NVX-CoV2373

NVX-CoV2373 is a protein-based vaccine candidate engineered from the genetic sequence of the first strain of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 disease. NVX-CoV2373 was created using Novavax’ recombinant nanoparticle technology to generate antigen derived from the coronavirus spike (S) protein and is formulated with Novavax’ patented saponin-based Matrix-M™ adjuvant to enhance the immune response and stimulate high levels of neutralizing antibodies. NVX-CoV2373 contains purified protein antigen and can neither replicate, nor can it cause COVID-19. In preclinical studies, NVX-CoV2373 induced antibodies that blocked the binding of spike protein to cellular receptors and provided protection from infection and disease. It was generally well-tolerated and elicited robust antibody response in Phase 1/2 clinical testing.

NVX-CoV2373 is being evaluated in two pivotal Phase 3 trials: a trial in the U.K. that demonstrated efficacy of 96.4% against the original virus strain, 86.3% against the B.1.1.7 (Alpha) variant and 89.7% overall; and the PREVENT-19 trial in the U.S. and Mexico that began in December 2020. It is also being tested in two ongoing Phase 2 studies that began in August 2020: A Phase 2b trial in South Africa that demonstrated 55% efficacy overall in HIV-negative participants and 48.6% efficacy against the B.1.351 (Beta) variant, and a Phase 1/2 study in the U.S. and Australia.

NVX-CoV2373 is stored and stable at 2°- 8°C, allowing the use of existing vaccine supply chain channels for its distribution. It is packaged in a ready-to-use liquid formulation in 10-dose vials.

About Matrix-M™ Adjuvant

Novavax’ patented saponin-based Matrix-M™ adjuvant has demonstrated a potent and well-tolerated effect by stimulating the entry of antigen-presenting cells into the injection site and enhancing antigen presentation in local lymph nodes, boosting immune response.

“There is no climate emergency.” April 16, 2021

“We are both scientists who can attest that the research literature does not support the claim of a climate emergency. Nor will there be one. None of the lurid predictions —dangerously accelerating sea-level rise, increasingly extreme weather, more deadly forest fires, unprecedented warming, etc. —are any more accurate than the fire-and-brimstone sermons used to stoke fanaticism in medieval crusaders.”

“True believers assert that this emergency can be averted only by eliminating greenhouse-gas emissions. Greenhouse gases include ubiquitous water vapor, methane, nitrous oxide, and above all, carbon dioxide, a gas released when fossil fuels are burned to power transportation, generate electricity, and are used to manufacture amenities of modern life.“

“Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere let sunlight warm the earth’s surface. But they absorb some of the heat radiation from the surface and atmosphere that would otherwise cool more efficiently by escaping directly to space. Greenhouse gases —and clouds —keep the earth’s surface temperature several tens of degrees Celsius warmer than it would be without them.“

So far, climate crusaders have refrained from vilifying water vapor and clouds, which make the largest c”ontribution to greenhouse warming of the earth. Carbon dioxide, demonized as “carbon pollution,” is an improbable villain. Green plants use the energy of sunlight to manufacture sugar and other organic molecules of life from carbon dioxide and water molecules. A byproduct of photosynthesis is the oxygen of our atmosphere. Each human exhales about two pounds of the ‘pollutant’ carbon dioxide every day.”

“No scientist familiar with radiation transfer denies that more carbon dioxide is likely to cause some surface warming. But the warming would be small and benign. In fact, history shows that warmings of a few degrees Celsius —which extended growing seasons—have been good for humanity. The golden age of classical Roman civilization occurred during a warm period. Cooling periods, which were accompanied by barbarian invasions, famines, and plagues, have been bad. Barbara Tuchman characterizes such periods as‘the calamitous 14th century in her book, A Distant Mirror.“

“More carbon dioxide will certainly increase the productivity of agriculture and forestry. Over the past century, the earth has already become noticeably greener as a result of the modest increase of CO2, from about 0.03 percent to 0.04 percent of atmospheric molecules. More CO2 has made a significant contribution to the increased crop yields of the past 50 years, as well. The benefits to plants of more CO2 are documented in hundreds of scientific studies.”

“There is no climate emergency. Americans should not be stampeded into a disastrous climate crusade. The medieval crusades did far more harm than good, destroying the lives of many decent people of all faiths, and leaving a bitter legacy that complicates international relations and social harmony to this day. A climate crusade that destroys economies and ultimately lives will be as bad, or worse.”

Reblog: Mom who survived Mao’s China calls critical race theory America’s Cultural Revolution

By Lee Brown

June 10, 2021 | 12:34pm

A Virginia mom who grew up under Chairman Mao’s brutal Communist regime has angrily ripped critical race theory as “the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution.”

“Critical race theory has its roots in cultural Marxism — it should have no place in our schools,” Xi Van Fleet said to cheers and applause at a Tuesday meeting of the progressive Loudoun County School Board.

“You are now teaching, training our children, to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history,” she told the meeting of the district already bitterly divided for pushing the policy that critics accuse of itself being racist.

“Growing up in Mao’s China, all of this seems very familiar,” insisted the mom, who finally fled China when she was 26.

“The Communist regime used the same critical theory to divide people. The only difference is they used class instead of race,” she

The mom — whose son graduated from Loudoun High School in 2015 — compared the current division in the US to her experience growing up under Mao Zedong, one of the most brutal rulers in history until his death in 1979.

She recalled seeing “students and teachers turn against each other,” and school names being changed “to be politically correct” as they were “taught to denounce our heritage.”

“The Red Guards destroyed anything that is not Communist — statues, books and anything else,” she said.

“We were also encouraged to report on each other, just like the Student Equity Ambassador program and the bias reporting system,” she said of systems that other parents have sued over.

Van Fleet told Fox News on Wednesday that she initially planned to say more but was forced to cut her speech to a minute.

“To me, and to a lot of Chinese, it is heartbreaking that we escaped communism and now we experience communism here,” she told Fox of her strong feelings against the progressive agenda.

Ian Prior, the father of two students attending Loudoun schools, said Van Fleet’s remarks “should serve as a stark warning.”

“I think for a while now, school systems have really put this stuff in the schools right under our very noses, and we just weren’t aware,” he told Fox, saying parents were “trusting the school system to do the job.”

“It took a pandemic and all the information that parents could see with this distance learning to understand exactly what was going on.”

The school board in a wealthy district has become a hotbed of controversy for numerous progressive teaching policies.

This week, a judge ordered the reinstatement of a Christian teacher who had been suspended for refusing to recognize “a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa” and use transgender students’ preferred pronouns.

Biden/Harris are the ‘Most Lethal Threat to the Homeland.’

Biden/Harris are the ‘Most Lethal Threat to the Homeland.’ They are far beyond dereliction of sworn duty. They left the Constitution, which presumably they swore to protect and defend, in the dust on first day in office. Yet here is mentally incapacitated Biden, a fake, a racist character disorder, projecting his white supremacy on Americans. Even worse, GOP does not get their act together and remove these criminals.

In his thin but very heavy booklet, The True Believer, San Francisco longshoreman dockworker/philosopher Eric Hoffer warned us in 1951 of the man-of-action who follows the true believer. The world is now knee deep in their fundamental transformation into chaos and revolution. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_True_Believer

Biden: ‘White Supremacy’ the ‘Most Lethal Threat to the Homeland’

During a speech Tuesday in Oklahoma marking the 100th anniversary of the 1921 Tulsa race massacre, decrepit placeholder President Joe Biden claimed ludicrously that terrorism from white supremacy was “the most lethal threat” facing the United States.

“According to the intelligence community, terrorism from white supremacy is the most lethal threat to the homeland today,” Biden stated. “Not ISIS. Not Al Qaeda. White supremacists.”

First, as for ISIS and al Qaeda: Democrats have never been willing to acknowledge the actual terror threat to the United States of Islamic extremists, with whom they are locked in an unholy alliance. Second: real white supremacists in the U.S. are the tiniest, most marginalized, politically impotent, and culturally despised demographic on the planet.

In fact, the most lethal threat to the homeland today is the race-mongering, globalist Democrat Party, whose shock troops in Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa wreaked havoc across the nation over the last couple of years. BLM is supported at the highest levels of government and corporate leadership, and the domestic terror movement Antifa has been ignored by even Biden himself as a mere “idea.” The left’s support for police defunding and its indifference to the tsunami of illegal aliens sweeping over the southern border also constitute terror threats.

But the Democrats and their media enablers have been hard at work demonizing former President Trump and his 84 million supporters as white supremacists and domestic terrorists, particularly since the January 6 Capitol breach by a small number of pro-Trump demonstrators instigated by Antifa activists. The truth is that Trump supporters are not a threat to the country; they are a threat to the Democrat Party.

FBI Director: “No Question” Cartel Activity from Mexico “Spilling Over” Into U.S. During Border Crisis

Posted: 11 Jun 2021 11:10 AM PDT

Crisis at the southern border Mexican cartel activity is “spilling over” into the U.S.

DEL RIO, TX – According to reports, there is “no question” that amid the crisis at the southern border Mexican cartel activity is “spilling over” into the U.S., FBI Director Christopher Wray said during a House Judiciary Committee hearing held on Thursday.

This comes as reports indicate the situation at the U.S.-Mexican border is growing worse, with Border Patrol agents encountering over 180,000 migrants attempting to cross into the country in May, cementing a steady increase over the previous months, with 178,000 encountered in April and 173,000 in March.

Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) had asked Wray at Thursday’s hearing if the FBI knew if any of the migrants crossing the U.S. border could be in cahoots with – or in servitude to – Mexican cartels and smugglers, to which Wray replied in the positive.

“Certainly, we have seen quite a number of such instances, absolutely,” he said. “We are pursuing a number of human trafficking task forces, as well as working on certain taskforces with DHS [Department of Homeland Security] to try to address that issue. But there’s no question that the cartel activity on the other side of the border is spilling over in all sorts of ways and you just put your finger on one that is extremely concerning.”

Reports indicate that cartels have been charging massive fees to sneak foreign nationals into the U.S., and that smugglers have been regularly dumping unaccompanied children at the border – some as young as 3 years-old – to be picked up by the Border Patrol, presumably to be reunited with patents who have already snuck in.

the agenda

The radicalized children of Portland, Oregon have heard it their entire lives. So have my kids.  I am 70+ and I began hearing it in college during the Vietnam war.  The only time it has stopped during my life was partially during the Reagan years (depending on whom you were listening to), and partially during the Trump years (depending on whom you were listening to.)  We have been and are still hearing and watching subversion.  Non-stop.  And it is accelerating.  It is pervasive.

Reblog: The Great Reject by David Solway

The Great Reject

By David Solway May 13, 2021 3:01 PM ET

(Cyril Zingaro/Keystone via AP)

We know from Klaus Schwab, Chair of the World Economic Forum that meets annually in Davos, Switzerland, and architect of the Great Reset which envisions the entire re-making of Western society into a globalist oligopoly, that the pandemic is largely a manufactured crisis. COVID-19 is not “an existential threat,” he writes in COVID-19: The Great Reset; in fact, it is “one of the least deadly pandemics the world has experienced in the last 2000 years.” Strategic chicanery has become the order of the day. According to Schwab, the COVID crisis must be weaponized to deceive and suppress a credulous population and to stifle dissent in order to bring about the total restructuring of Western societies. COVID is the stalking horse behind which the true purpose of the revolutionary scheme and prospectus advances.

World governments and public health organizations have complied with the Davos agenda, mobilizing a veritable arsenal of tactical ordnance in the service of the larger plan. The disease constitutes “our defining moment,” Schwab exults, as the world’s political and medical peerage prepared to launch a four-pronged attack on the free-market West: mask mandates, perpetual lockdowns, defective PCR testing protocols and controversial if not toxic vaccines. Almost everything government officials and public health authorities have stipulated and enforced has been engineered to create an unprecedented catastrophe.

Entire populations will be demoralized and deprived of agency, the entrepreneurial and self-employed middle class will be effectively phased out, and the ethos of individuality and self-reliance will succumb to a global collectivity. “You will own nothing and be happy” is the operative watchword. Only the political, technocratic and plutocratic elite will be spared, as Patrick Wood explains in Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation. This in a nutshell is the Great Reset. It sounds like a conspiracy theory aching to be debunked—the BBC’s considers the Reset as a laudable plan to restore the world’s economy rather than a “baseless conspiracy…which claims a group of world leaders orchestrated the pandemic to take control of the global economy.” The BBC perspective, among similar take-down efforts by many other Leftist venues, is wholly predictable. But a reading of Schwab’s various books detailing the project, in particular COVID-19: The Great Reset and Shaping the Future of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and the complicity of major international players like Bill Gates, Joe Biden, Justin Trudeau, Boris Johnson, Al Gore, Prince Charles, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, and a host of others, as well as the backing of Time Magazine, Greenpeace International, BP, etc., make it abundantly clear that an insurrectionary program is afoot.

“Do we aim to get back to where we were before, or should we take the opportunity to make society fairer, smarter and greener, and get humanity off the road to climate catastrophe – a ‘great reset’?”, the WEF has rhetorically stated. As Bitcoin.com puts it, “the coronavirus measures coupled with purported climate change and statist propaganda are considered the primers of this great reset concept. The global elite want to drag mankind towards the biggest economic crisis ever seen in history…This crisis will be accurately engineered in order to create a disorder which would take mankind to the New World Order.” 

In short, COVID is a customized emergency meant to close down society as we once knew it, devastate the economy, and reduce people to a state of fearful and abject compliance. Stephen Green writes, “Wuhan Flu is a killer almost exclusively of the aged, the infirm, the obese, and the malnourished—typically a combination of at least two of the four. Who would look at that situation and decide that the best course was to shut in the young, the healthy, the trim, and the well-nourished?” Why, the Great Resetters, of course, and their progressivist collaborators. People are easily manipulated. Lock them down and soften them up for the “Build Back Better” calamity to come. For that is what is manifestly happening. That’s the plan. As Schwab wrote in COVID-19: The Great Reset, we will never return to normal. Indeed, “The left has already proven throughout the COVID-19 pandemic that it can radically transform political realities in the midst of a crisis,” The Hill points out, “so it’s not hard to see how the Great Reset could eventually come to fruition.”  

Thankfully, skepticism of public authority appears to be growing. Some countries have remained open. States across the U.S. are opening up or have already done so; additionally, South Dakota, Arizona, South Carolina, Wyoming, Florida, and Texas, are also banning the mandating of vaccines and the implementation of vaxxports. There are robust anti-lockdown demonstrations in many parts of the world. In Canada, there have been several manifestations assembling in Queen’s Park in Toronto. The city of Peterborough has hosted a vigorous protest in defiance of its Whitmeresque mayor. A mammoth demonstration in Montreal suggests that Quebeckers are fed up with demagogic warrant. Conservative MP Derek Sloan recently led a Freedom Convoy which was “so long, there were still 40 cars that hadn’t started the journey 37 km away” (circular email). Elsewhere around the world, Belgrade has seen thousands march against the lockdowns. In the U.K. a massive protest in London took it to the authorities. Clearly seeking to diminish the significance of the London event, media estimated the crowd at 10,000 participants; reports I have received from trusted observers on the ground put the numbers at closer to many hundreds of thousands, as the video images confirm. 

Voice of America reports that protests have multiplied in Germany, Austria, Finland, Romania, Switzerland, Poland, France, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, and Romania. These are only a few illustrations of a surging movement around the globe. VOA continues: “Protesters fear governments may be less willing to relinquish powers they have accrued to themselves during the pandemic,” worrying that intrusive state surveillance may become a permanent feature in many states once the crisis has diminished. “They fear the balance of power between the state and individuals has been upended and bewail governments navigating the pandemic with what they argue has been heavy-handed state coercion.” 

Canadian parliamentarian Randy Hillier is pleased to note that his movement No More Lockdowns Canada continues to grow as “events become more numerous.” Jeffrey Tucker, Editorial Director for the American Institute for Economic Policy, writes that “lockdowns were largely political theater distracting from what should have been good public health practice.” But the blowback is intensifying, as people come increasingly to realize that “what happened over these 14 months was a catastrophic disaster of public health without precedent. The collateral damage is unfathomable.” Hillier and Tucker believe we may be witnessing a rising populist revolt determined to resist the globalist threat associated with Schwab’s World Economic Forum, the U.N.’s Agenda 2030, and complicit governments as they ride the COVID pseudo-wave for all it is worth. 

No one denies that the COVID event is serious, but it is far less deleterious than the orthodox reaction to it. Tom Woods, among others, has shown the plainly inverse relation between stringent anti-COVID measures and recovery; the contrast between a reasonably open Sweden, for example, and a tightly closed Hungary is startling and vivid. Sweden has one of the better health outcomes in the world and Hungary one of the worst. The measures and remedies that have been introduced to combat the disease patently do not work to “flatten the curve”—which was never the core intent of the Great Reset. “Never let a good crisis go to waste” is the underlying principle. Hopefully, a Great Reject may be in process, recognizing the fraudulence of the political response to the COVID virus, the public hysteria the political class and its media myrmidons have fomented, and the checkpoint society looming menacingly on the horizon. 

There is, of course, a varied set of beliefs among the Rejectors. Some acknowledge that COVID was a serious event that needed to be fought, but that the prophylactic strategies adopted by governments around the world caused far more harm in needless deaths, “excess deaths,” pandemic bankruptcies, and the actual suppression of common humanity than did the disease. Others argue that COVID was essentially a political virus disseminated to promote the hegemony of the elite. Still others, referring to Chinese biowarfare research, believe that the virus was released by the CCP to get rid of Donald Trump and install a China-friendly, America-bashing Biden in his place. Some adopt all three positions. But all are united in the conviction that better methods exist to repel the disease, that, as Dr. Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist at Guelph University said, natural immunity is the preferable antidote, and that the lockdowns must end.

Naturally, there will be resistance against the Great Reject by those who have been co-opted by the new Trilateral Commission comprising the medical bureaucracy, the digital commissariat, and the machinations of the political nomenklatura. It remains only to be seen whether the Reject will be sufficiently potent and widespread to counter the Reset, the inertia and compliance of the masses, and the false and repressive COVID narrative that has destroyed our economies and blighted our lives. https://buy.tinypass.com/checkout/template/cacheableShow?aid=XGSTHNtMcq&templateId=OT3GQC99IG75&offerId=fakeOfferId&experienceId=EXJTBR54JDDM&iframeId=offer_8a9abe77af153db877ca-0&displayMode=inline&pianoIdUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fid.tinypass.com%2Fid%2F&widget=template
