Thousands of Dutch farms face forced closure to comply with new EU environmental rules

(Natural News) The globalist-controlled European Union (EU) is demanding that member nation-states, including The Netherlands, shut down farming in order to comply with environmental rules predicated upon the hoax known as “climate change.”

Some 3,000 farms located in “environmentally sensitive” areas in The Netherlands are now slated for seizure and closure, we are told – this is up from the 600 farms that were announced back in October as targets for elimination due to nitrogen “pollution.”

Following a summer of farmer protests that saw tractors barrel across the Dutch landscape as a show of opposition to the EU’s “green” agenda, the Dutch government is still moving forward with plans to cut nitrogen emissions in the country by at least 50 percent by the year 2030.

Nitrogen Minister Christianne van der Wal recently announced that the Dutch government will conduct a “compulsory purchase” of the country’s largest nitrogen-emitting farms. Farmers who own the land will reportedly be offered deals “well over” what their properties are actually worth.

Van der Wal added in a statement that “there is no better offer coming” than the ones her government plans to offer. In other words, farmers can either accept the deal and get something, or reject it and possibly receive very little or nothing while losing their livelihoods.

Dutch war on farmers is part of same ESG agenda being pushed in America, warns expert

The endgame of this takedown of Dutch agriculture is part of a globalist “net zero” carbon emissions plan, which aims to remove carbon, a natural element necessary for life, from the four corners of the planet.

With this will come mass depopulation, of course, as carbon and nitrogen are basic buildings blocks of life. Globalism, in essence, is anti-life, and it seeks to steal, kill, and destroy everything that is natural and good.

“The Netherlands’ war on farmers to pursue their ESG (environmental, social, and governance) agenda serves as a stark warning,” says Will Hild, executive director of the Consumers’ Research group.

“Americans should be vigilant against efforts by both governments and big Wall Street firms like BlackRock pushing these same dangerous ‘net zero’ carbon emissions targets here in the US. It is difficult to overstate the recklessness of undermining farmers during the greatest global food crisis in decades. This will likely exacerbate the food price inflation we are already experiencing.”

There is a very small silver lining to all this in that a political party called BoerBurgerBeweging (BBB), backed by the Farmer-Citizen movement in The Netherlands, currently ranks fourth in the polls ahead of next year’s election.

It is possible that BBB will continue rising in the ranks as Dutch citizens learn more about what the EU’s “green” policies will do. Once it becomes more widely known that mass starvation is the eventual outcome of such policies, BBB’s popularity could increase, potentially resulting in a win next year.

According to reports, BBB’s number-one goal will be to reform the country’s “nitrogen law,” which erroneously views this natural element to be a “pollutant” in need of eradication.

The world’s number-one agricultural producer right now is the United States, followed by The Netherlands in second place. Much of Western Europe relies on The Netherlands for vegetables. More than half of all Dutch land is used for agriculture, in fact, and there are 24,000 acres’ worth of crops also growing in greenhouses throughout the country.

“And so it begins,” one commenter wrote. “Look for the rest of European farms to go the same way. The US isn’t that far behind. Dutch farmers had better link arms and band together for a nasty fight. There is no other way.”

The “green” movement is a depopulation movement. To learn more, visit GreenTyranny.news.

Manufacturing EV batteries in EU “practically unviable” due to soaring energy costs, says Volkswagen

Image: Manufacturing EV batteries in EU “practically unviable” due to soaring energy costs, says Volkswagen

(Natural News) The energy crisis in Europe is making it prohibitively difficult for electric vehicle (EV) battery manufacturers to continue operating.

Thomas Schaefer, the CEO of Volkswagen AG’s name brand, recently stated that EV battery plants are “practically unviable” at this point because of energy costs that have reached the stratosphere due to globalist sanctions against Russia over its invasion of Ukraine.

Battery cell plants in Germany and elsewhere throughout the European Union (E.U.) require large amounts of energy to stay in operation. Much of that energy came in the form of oil and gas from Russia via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline, which is currently non-operational due to Western sabotage.

Just in case you missed it the first time: in order to produce “emission-free” batteries for EVs, huge amounts of oil and gas, which we are told create lots of emissions, are required. (Related: There is nothing clean or green about electric vehicles and other “renewable” energy technologies.)

“Unless we manage to reduce energy prices in Germany and Europe quickly and reliably, investments in energy-intensive production or new battery cell factories in Germany and the EU will be practically unviable,” Schaefer wrote in a November 28 LinkedIn post.

“The USA, Canada, China, Southeast Asia, and regions like North Africa are forging ahead … The value creation in this area will take place elsewhere,” he added about how the EU is being left behind due to its disastrous (green) energy policies.

Brighteon.TV

While it is somewhat encouraging that French and German economics ministers Bruno Le Maire and Robert Habeck are working together on joint cooperative industrial policy, this “falls short in crucial areas and does not address the envisaged priorities,” Schaefer says.

Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act has worsened Europe’s economic crisis

To make matters worse, the Biden regime ramrodded through the so-called Inflation Reduction Act over the summer. This new climate and tax law aims to boost EV production in the United States while reducing reliance upon foreign countries like communist China.

This could be good for the U.S. if things go as claimed, however it is not good for Europe which is already in the throes of the worst energy crisis in modern history. The bill’s subsidies and restrictions hurt European countries and violate World Trade Organization (WHO) rules by discriminating against non-American companies.

This is the position of the economic ministers of France and Germany, anyway. They say fake president Joe Biden’s economic agenda is dismantling decades of trade policies with America’s allies.

Le Maire compared the Biden regime’s industrial policies to that of communist China, which offers major subsidies to local companies in order to boost domestic production.

“China tipped into this globalization a long time ago with massive state aid exclusively reserved for Chinese products,” Le Maire is quoted as saying. “Right before our eyes, the U.S. has tipped into this new globalization to develop its industrial capacity on U.S. soil.”

Habeck added that European authorities must act quickly and decisively to combat the problem and strengthen European industry – that is, unless a compromise is achieved between both sides.

French President Emmanuel Macron is pushing for a “Buy European Act” to combat Biden’s move while Germany Chancellor Olaf Scholz says he will try to negotiate with Biden at the December 5 meeting of the E.U.-U.S. Trade and Technology Council.

German Finance Minister Christian Lindner, however, does not believe that engaging in a trade dispute with the U.S. is the right move.

“It produces no winners, only losers,” Lindner said at a recent press conference. “The approach from my point of view is to talk to the U.S. – the goal is not to hurt the Biden administration. It’s an opportunity to talk about new transatlantic free trade.”

Rent Crisis Breaks ’22 Record: 41% in U.S. Couldn’t Pay in Nov., Up 4%

By Chuck Castro,

Commercial bank holding of Agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS) has collapsed with Fed tightening and mortgage rate increases.

Ain’t that a lot of bad news for real estate and the mortgage market.

Due to high inflation, reduced consumer spending, higher rents and other economic pressures, U.S.-based small business owners’ rent problems just escalated to new heights nationally this month, based on Alignable’s November Rent Poll of 6,326 small business owners taken from 11/19/22 to 11/22/22.

Unfortunately, 41% of U.S.-based small business owners report that they could not pay their rent in full and on time in November, a new record for 2022. Making matters worse, this occurred during a quarter when more money should be coming in and rent delinquency rates should be decreasing. But so far this quarter, the opposite has been true.

Last month, rent delinquency rates increased seven percentage points from 30% in September to 37% in October. And now, in November, that rate is another four percentage points higher, reaching a new high across a variety of industries.

All told in Q4 so far, the rent delinquency rate continues to increase at a significant pace, up 11 percentage points from where it was just two months ago.

Reasons Why Paying The Rent Is Getting Tougher

According to small business owners, several economic factors are contributing to this problem simultaneously, which include:

  • Higher rents for 52% of SMBs(up 1% from last month)
  • Declining monthly revenues: in October only 34% of SMBs reported earning half or less of their pre-COVID income. But this month, that figure is 7% higher: 41% are generating half or less of what they earned monthly prior to COVID
  • Reduced consumer spending. In October, 59% of SMB owners said consumers were purchasing less than the month prior. In November, that number skyrocketed to 73%
  • 60% of SMBs say inflation’s really hurting their business right now (even though the inflation rate is a bit lower than it was)
    • One indicator of the toll inflation is taking on businesses is a steep drop in the percentage of small businesses that are fully recovered, earning as much if not more than they did monthly prior to COVID.  The percentage was 24% in October, but dropped to 14% in November — an all-time low.

All Eyes Are On Retail Now

While many industries are negatively affected by inflation, reduced consumer spending, higher rents, and other issues, retail is one of the sectors suffering the most.

For starters, 44% of retailers could not pay their Nov. rent (up 1%)Beyond that, the majority (52%) say their outlook for the rest of Q4 is not good:

  • 40% expect to make less in Q4 ‘22 than they did in Q4 ‘21
  • 10% say inflation’s so bad, they might need to close,
  • 1% have already shut down
  • 41% say Q4’s been disappointing so far, but they still hope for a surge in sales
  • And only 8% expect Q4 ‘22 will be their best quarter ever

Will Black Friday and Small Business Saturday save the day for these retailers?

It will likely take a more concerted effort than that focused specifically on Mom & Pop operations for at least the rest of the year, but strong sales among independent retailers next weekend would be a step in the right direction.

What Other Sectors Are Improving vs. Growing Weaker

There’s plenty of discouraging news looking at the rest of the poll results, but there have been a few significant improvements in rent delinquency, too. These charts show the larger landscape across a variety of industries.

Alignable November 2022 Rent Report Industry-Specific Chart
Alignable Nov. Rent Report 2022 -- Industry Delinquency Over The Past Year

Let’s start with the more positive developments:

  • Travel and Lodging businesses have experienced what can only be described as a rebound – finally. Consumers are traveling again in droves and it’s showing up in these results, too. Not only is the rent delinquency rate for travel and lodging pros very low – just 13% – it has improved by 21 percentage points since October. This lowest rate travel/lodging pros have experienced in 2.5 years. Let’s see if this sector can sustain its success in December and January.
  • Manufacturing is also progressing well in its rebound with only 20% of small businesses in this sector unable to pay their rent, down seven percentage points since October.
  • Restaurants are still having major rent troubles, but there was a seven-percentage point improvement from last month, shifting from a 49% rent delinquency rate to 42%. Yes, it’s still high, but it’s a nice jump in the right direction.
  • 37% of those in the automotive industry couldn’t pay November rent, but that’s 12 percentage points better than the 49% statistic that sector had in October.
  • 46% of educators are also still having a challenging time with rent, but that does represent a positive shift from 57% last month.
  • Transportation is down by 1% over the October rate of 46%, but it must be noted that having 45% of trucking companies, taxi services, Lyft, and Uber businesses, and the like unable to pay their full rent is still a significant indicator of the ongoing power of high inflation.

Real Estate, Construction & Beauty Sectors Are In Trouble

While there are a few silver linings in this otherwise discouraging report for small businesses, here are some of the statistics that are causing the most concern. We already discussed the troubles retailers are having, but they are not alone.

Real Estate, as a sector, saw no improvement in November and is holding steady at 37% for the second month in a row, largely due to increasing interest rates, and declining home sales. Also, there’s the ongoing issue of fewer homes to sell and the cancellation of large construction projects due to fears of a full-blown recession.

Yes, this is a challenging scenario for any real estate company.  But given that real estate agents are experts at negotiating rents and mortgages, it’s especially concerning that more than one-third, for two months in a row, couldn’t pay their rent.

Considering what’s happening to real estate agents, it’s no surprise to see that small businesses in the construction industry had a harder time paying rent in November.

In fact, 42% of construction company owners were unable to afford the rent (up 3% from October)Even worse, this 42% delinquency rate represents a record high for this category in 2022.

Musicians, Artists & Beauticians: Increasing Issues

The rent delinquency rate for musicians and artists also rose this month to 38%, up 1%.

We’re hearing that more entertainment gigs are being booked than they were a year ago. But, in general, consumers are starting to cut back on extra expenses, like hiring an entertainer for a company event or a private party.

So, while they’re currently out of the COVID woods, the lack of disposable income that comes with a year or more of inflation is sidelining a lot of entertainers once again.

And while beauty salons and barber shops were making an economic comeback in the early fall, their rent delinquency numbers are way up right now, breaking a record for 2022 at 57%.

This represents an increase of 18 percentage points over their 39% delinquency rate in October, and 29 percentage points over September’s rate of 28%.

Looking at the year overall, the beauty industry has been on a roller coaster ride in terms of its financial stability, but this has been its worst month yet.

Moving on from the key industries affected by rent delinquency, let’s see how Canada and particular states are faring in this economically challenging landscape.

Rates Rise In MI, NY, TX, IL, OH & CO

States and how they weigh in on rent delinquency in Nov. '22 report from Alignable

The Top Ten States for Rent Delinquency in November are:

  • Michigan (51% of small business owners couldn’t afford rent, up 19%)
  • New York (49% couldn’t make rent, up 4%)
  • Massachusetts (45%, down 6% from a high of 51% in Oct.)
  • Texas (43%, up 5%)
  • California (41%, down 3%)
  • Illinois (40%, up 8%) & Ohio (40%, up 18%)
  • New Jersey (38%, down 11%)
  • Georgia (36%, down 1%)
  • Arizona (32%, down 2%)

Beyond what was mentioned already, Colorado also saw an increase in rent delinquency among its small business owners, up to 30% in November from 27% in October. However, Colorado’s small businesses are faring better than many others across the country.

Of all these data insights, the one that stands out the most is that nearly half (49%) of all small business owners from New York who took this poll could not afford to pay their rent on time and in full in November.

We’ll need to keep our eyes on this statistic closely, because it shows that recoveries among small businesses in such a large, influential state appear to be backsliding.  At the same time, New York is a hotspot for high rents, so those are contributing to this finding.

How Are Recoveries In Canada Progressing?

Like New York, Canadian recoveries among small businesses are not proceeding well, generally, in November.

Canada’s national average rent delinquency for small business owners also increased in November, landing at 45%, up three percentage points from October, when it was 42%.

And the national average is up four percentage points from September’s 41% statistic.

Like the U.S., the rent delinquency rate continues to get worse in Q4, as the cumulative effects of inflation take a toll.

Let’s look at a few of the provinces, though, for a deeper analysis:

  • Ontario’s rent delinquency rate is 45%, the highest this month in Canada. That’s up five percentage points from October and six percentage points from September.
  • However, British Columbia’s rate is now 43%, down five percentage points from October.
  • And Alberta’s delinquency rate is 33%, down 2% from October.

So, some of the provinces are seeing some positive movement when it comes to rent delinquency. Let’s see if this builds in the coming months.

Meanwhile, Ontario reflects the high same high rate of rent delinquencies that small businesses are reporting nationally in Canada.

New Study on Vitamin D Combating COVID

  • Researchers from Johns Hopkins University, the University of Chicago and the Department of Veterans Health Affairs conducted a large-scale pharmacoepidemiologic study of the association between vitamin D and COVID-19 infection and mortality

  • Those who took vitamin D2 supplements had a 28% lower risk of COVID-19 infection, while those taking vitamin D3 had a 20% lower risk

  • Death from COVID-19 was also lower among those taking vitamin D — 33% lower among those taking vitamin D3 and 25% lower among those taking vitamin D2

  • If the entire U.S. population in 2020 had supplemented with vitamin D3, it would have prevented 4 million COVID-19 cases and 116,000 deaths

  • I strongly recommend getting your vitamin D from proper sun exposure if possible, as it will provide numerous other benefits, many of which are only beginning to be understood

Optimizing your vitamin D level is a foundational element to lower your risk of COVID-19. This simple step will also help you ward off many types of viral infections, because vitamin D is an immunomodulatory agent.

This point — that vitamin D helps combat COVID-19 — was widely censored and deemed “misinformation” during the pandemic. But yet another study — this one published in Scientific Reports1 — shows the association between vitamin D and COVID-19 protection cannot be ignored.

About half the U.S. population has deficient levels of vitamin D, and rates of vitamin D deficiency are even higher in people with darker skin, those living in higher latitudes in the winter, nursing home residents and people with reduced sun exposure. Among groups with low levels of vitamin D, rates of COVID-19 are higher.2

Researchers from Johns Hopkins University, the University of Chicago and the Department of Veterans Health Affairs conducted a large-scale pharmacoepidemiologic study of the association between vitamin D3 and D2 supplementation and the probability of COVID-19 infection and mortality.3

“Vitamin D deficiency has long been associated with reduced immune function that can lead to viral infection. Several studies have shown that vitamin D deficiency … increases the risk of infection with COVID-19,” they wrote.4

In the video above, John Campbell, a retired nurse and teacher based in England, detailed the findings. The study involved a large population of veterans, including 220,265 patients supplemented with vitamin D3 before and during the pandemic, 34,710 supplemented with vitamin D2 and 407,860 untreated patients.5

Those who took vitamin D2 supplements had a 28% lower risk of COVID-19 infection, while those taking vitamin D3 had a 20% lower risk. Please note that vitamin D2 is a plant-based version of vitamin D and I do not recommend it. Death from COVID-19 was also lower among those taking vitamin D — 33% lower among those taking vitamin D3 and 25% lower among those taking vitamin D2.6

“These associated reductions in risk are substantial and justify more significant exploration and confirmation using RCTs [randomized controlled trials],” the researchers explained. “This is particularly important given the high rates of vitamin D deficiency in the U.S. population and COVID-19.”7

The veterans were taking varying doses of vitamin D, ranging from 20 IU which is absolutely worthless and no different than placebo, to 50,000 IU. Usually 50 IU doses are given once a week. I am convinced this is inferior to taking 8,000 IU every day.

However, those taking higher doses received greater benefits than those taking lower dosages. Further, veterans with very low vitamin D levels (between zero and 19 ng/ml) had the largest decrease in COVID-19 infection after supplementation.8

“In response to these findings, physicians might consider regularly prescribing vitamin D3 to patients with deficient levels to protect them against COVID-19 infection and related mortality. The 50,000 IU dosage may be especially beneficial,” according to the study.9

Black veterans also had greater reductions in COVID-19 risk (29% decrease) following supplementation than white veterans (18% decrease).10 “As a safe, widely available and affordable treatment, vitamin D may help to reduce the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the researchers concluded.11

When the researchers extrapolated their vitamin D findings to the entire U.S. population in 2020, they found supplementation with vitamin D3 would have prevented 4 million COVID-19 cases and 116,000 deaths.12

Even applying the data to the Department of Veterans Administration, which had 343,094 COVID-19 cases and 14,981 deaths through October 2, 2021, vitamin D supplementation would have resulted in 69,000 fewer COVID-19 cases and 4,900 fewer deaths from March 2020 to October 2021.

Further, “These back-of-the-envelope calculations may be conservative given possible reductions in COVID-19 transmission due to the general population risk reduction from broader supplementation,” according to the researchers. “Given our findings, the absence of severe side effects, and the widespread availability of vitamin D3 at low cost, vitamin D3 presents a unique opportunity to reduce the spread and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic.”13

Being aware of your vitamin D levels, and increasing your levels if you’re deficient, is one of the simplest steps you can take to stay well. Vitamin D receptors are present in nearly all cells of the human immune system, including monocytes/macrophages, T cells, B cells, natural killer cells, dendritic cells.

Vitamin D has multiple actions on the immune system, including enhancing the production of antimicrobial peptides by immune cells, reducing damaging pro-inflammatory cytokines and promoting the expression of anti-inflammatory cytokines.14 This has multiple benefits for avoiding infections. In terms of COVID-19:

  • One study of 489 patients found those with vitamin D deficiency had a 77% increased risk of COVID-19 infection.15

  • People with low vitamin D levels had a 59% increased risk of severe COVID-19 infection.16 17

  • Those with low vitamin D had a 45% increase in COVID-19 infection and a 95% increase in hospitalizations.18 19

  • A 53% increase in COVID-19 infection rates was found among people with vitamin D deficiency (< 20 ng/mL) compared to those with levels of 55 ng/ml or higher.20 21

It’s clear that people with higher levels of vitamin D are also less likely to die from COVID-19 — and one study suggested that, theoretically, “a mortality rate close to zero” could be achieved if your vitamin D level reaches 50 ng/ml.22

The study authors believe that low vitamin D levels are not a “side effect” of COVID-19 but rather are a predictor of infection. As vitamin D plays a role in immune function, the epidemic of vitamin D deficiency is increasing the spread of many “diseases of civilization,” they note in the journal Nutrients, such as heart disease,23 along with reducing protection against infections:24

“One strong pillar in the protection against any type of virus infection is the strength of our immune system. Unfortunately, thus far, this unquestioned basic principle of nature has been more or less neglected by the responsible authorities.

It is well known that our modern lifestyle is far from optimal with respect to nutrition, physical fitness, and recreation. In particular, many people are not spending enough time outside in the sun, even in summer.

The consequence is widespread vitamin D deficiency, which limits the performance of their immune systems, resulting in the increased spread of some preventable diseases of civilization, reduced protection against infections, and reduced effectiveness of vaccination.”

Deficiency of vitamin D3 is also “one of the main reasons for severe courses of SARS-CoV-2 infections,” they explained, pointing out that fatality rates tend to be elevated in populations with very low vitamin D3 levels, including elderly people, black people and people with comorbidities.25

At the end of October 2020, I also published my own vitamin D review in the peer-reviewed journal Nutrients,26 co-written with William Grant, Ph.D., and Dr. Carol Wagner with the GrassrootsHealth expert vitamin D panel. At that time, 14 observational studies offered evidence that vitamin D levels are inversely correlated with the incidence or severity of COVID-19.

As noted in our paper, dark skin color, increased age, preexisting chronic conditions and vitamin D deficiency are all features of severe COVID disease and, of these, vitamin D deficiency is the only factor that is readily and easily modifiable.

Optimizing your vitamin D levels isn’t only about preventing COVID-19; it supports health in multiple ways. It’s been shown that people genetically predisposed to vitamin D deficiency were 25% more likely to die from any cause compared to those with different genetics conducive to healthy vitamin D levels.27

The data came from researchers with the Australian Center for Precision Health at the University of South Australia, who also revealed that vitamin D deficiency driven by genetics increases the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, respiratory diseases and cancer.28 A deficiency in vitamin D has also been implicated in such problems as multiple sclerosis29 and Parkinson’s disease.30

I’ve long recommended a vitamin D level of 40 to 60 ng/ml for optimal health and disease prevention. However, higher levels of 60 to 80 ng/ml may be even better — a level upward of 100 ng/mL also appears safe and beneficial for certain conditions, especially cancer.

I strongly recommend getting your vitamin D from proper sun exposure if at all possible. This is because not only will adequate sun exposure naturally raise your vitamin D levels to healthy levels, but it will provide numerous other benefits, many of which are only beginning to be understood.

It’s quite possible that having higher levels of vitamin D serves as a marker for healthy sun exposure, which in turn may be responsible for many of the beneficial health effects attributed to vitamin D — including increased longevity and lower cancer risk.

Many people are not aware that only 5% of your body’s melatonin — a potent anticancer agent — is produced in your pineal gland. The other 95% is produced inside your mitochondria — provided you get proper sun exposure. So vitamin D is more than likely a biomarker or surrogate for sun exposure, which is intricately involved in melatonin production.31 However, if you’re unable to get adequate sun exposure each day, supplementation may be necessary.

The only way to determine how much sun exposure is enough and/or how much vitamin D3 you need to take is to measure your vitamin D level, ideally twice a year. The D*Action Project by GrassrootsHealth is a cost-effective way to do this, while simultaneously progressing valuable research.

To participate, simply purchase a D*Action Measurement Kit and follow the registration instructions included. When supplementing, also remember to take synergistic effects with other nutrients into account. If you take high-dose vitamin D, you will also need to increase your intake of:

  • Magnesium

  • Vitamin K2

These three nutrients — vitamins D and K2, and magnesium — all work in tandem and rely on sufficient amounts of each to work optimally. Once you’ve confirmed your vitamin D levels via testing, remember to retest in three to four months to make sure you’ve reached your target level.

If you have, then you know you’re taking the correct dosage and/or getting the right amount of sun exposure. If you’re still low (or have reached a level above 80 ng/ml), you’ll need to adjust your dosage accordingly and retest again in another three to four months.

Danish PM shamed over COVID-19 vaccines that killed 83K

Image: Danish PM shamed over COVID-19 vaccines that killed 83K

(Natural News) Mette Frederiksen, who was recently reelected as Denmark’s prime minister, had been shamed over her support and promotion of Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) injections.

Frederiksen faced vitriol from Kent Nielsen of the Danish political party Frihedslisten (Freedom List) during an event in the Netherlands. Nielsen approached the prime minister from behind, introduced himself and proceeded to tell the Danish leader that 83,000 people in her home country died from the COVID-19 vaccines. Moreover, over 150,000 Danes suffered vaccine injuries.

The prime minister Frederiksen refused to answer Nielsen’s allegations, keeping silent throughout the exchange. Meanwhile, Dutch security officers, part of the prime minister’s detail, physically assaulted Nielsen and pushed him away.

Before security told Nielsen to keep his distance, he managed to throw several questions to the prime minister.

“How do you feel about the fact that you lied about immunity for a year? How can you sleep at night knowing that you are harming and killing Danes? You must feel guilty, Mette. It’s not hard to live with yourself when you are murdering and harming your own people,” Nielsen commented.

“So you’re just ice-cold? The ‘ice lady’ who doesn’t care … [about] killing and injuring other people. And then your bus sign says ‘Let’s care for the future.’ The woman who claims to be ‘the prime minister of the children’ is murdering Danish children and murdering Danish adults, and then runs from it all. It’s crazy.”

Dutch law enforcement stepped in at this point and interfered between the two. An officer asked Nielsen to give his name, social security number and identification. Nielsen then cooperated with the police and stopped filming.

But before turning off his camera, he blurted out: “And then she escapes in her bus of slaughter. Disgusting.” (Related: Danish Prime Minister FLEES like a criminal when confronted with the truth about covid-19 vaccines and mass murder.)

Frederiksen takes aim at vaccine skeptics

Frederiksen, who first assumed the premiership of the Scandinavian nation in 2019, harbored strong opinions against Danes refusing to get injected with the COVID-19 shot.

Back in November 2021, the Danish prime minister attacked the unvaccinated in her country as she reintroduced vaccine passports. “For all of you who are not vaccinated, [things] are going to become more difficult. And that’s also how I think it should be.”

“It can’t be said clearly enough,” she added. “Those of you who [have] not yet been vaccinated, do so.”

Frederiksen also blamed a “small group” of unvaccinated people disobeying pandemic mandates “to protect society” for a rise in COVID-19 cases.

“They bear the responsibility for all of the Danish society now. We are a good society, which has got back to a lot of life, which many other countries don’t have,” she remarked.

“The government stands side by side with just under 90 percent of people who are doing the right thing. The remaining group must not ruin things for the rest.”

In response to a question about a possible lockdown, the prime minister dismissed the idea – zooming in on vaccination instead.

“We are considering to a greater degree [than the lockdowns] what we can do to stop the views [the] small group of unvaccinated people have on the vaccine from ruining everything for the vast majority,” Frederiksen answered.

But Michael Bang Pedersen, a political professor at Aarhus University, said Frederiksen’s strong rhetoric against the unvaccinated did more harm than good.

“The press briefing [by Frederiksen] did more to dig a deeper divide than it did to create reconciliation,” he told news agency Ritzau. “We know from research that if you don’t have much confidence in authorities – and we know that unvaccinated people don’t – this can make you dig your heels in.”

How Vitamin C Is Effective in Treating Inflammatory Issues

  • Vitamin C is an essential water-soluble nutrient that evidence shows helps protect fat-soluble vitamin E in individuals with cystic fibrosis, an inflammatory condition that affects the lungs and gastrointestinal tract

  • Researchers believe the data can be extrapolated to other inflammatory conditions as vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, helps to protect your skin from sun-related damage and vitamin E-rich foods may help protect against some types of cancers

  • Vitamin C is a crucial component in the treatment of sepsis developed by Dr. Paul Marik that lowered the risk of mortality from 40.4% to 8.5% in one study and has demonstrated effectiveness in pediatric sepsis

  • Chronic inflammation can contribute to the development of cancer. Early studies demonstrated vitamin C could be a candidate for cancer treatment and to help ameliorate symptoms

  • National Cancer Institute believes current preclinical studies support the implementation of vitamin C in treatment as it may help lower the cost to patients and improve symptoms

Vitamin C is an essential water-soluble nutrient that’s also known as ascorbic acid. The body uses it as an antioxidant to protect against damage caused by free radicals or reactive oxygen species (ROS). A study1 published in Nutrients revealed that the administration of vitamin C could also help against oxidative stress by protecting the body’s vitamin E stores and promoting utilization.

Most mammals can synthesize their own vitamin C, but humans must get it from their diet. According to Oregon State University,2 it is an essential factor in many enzyme reactions, and several cohort studies have shown that it’s associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular conditions such as stroke, high blood pressure and coronary heart disease.

Studies have suggested that vitamin C may be used alongside other conventional medical treatments to lower the risk of heart injury after cardiac procedures and regular use of a vitamin C supplement can shorten the length of the common cold. Although taking large amounts of vitamin C has not produced any significant toxic effect, one side effect of taking large doses is diarrhea.

A severe deficiency causes a potentially fatal disease called scurvy. Vitamin C was not isolated until the 1930s, but the British Navy began carrying oranges and lemons on board ships to prevent scurvy starting in the 1700s. The current recommended dietary allowance (RDA) is based on the amount needed to maintain minimal vitamin C concentration and prevent scurvy.

Dr. Linus Pauling was the first to identify the importance of vitamin C to human health and today researchers continue to identify a variety of pathways through which vitamin C makes a significant impact on disease prevention and treatment. The 2022 study3 published in Nutrients sought to determine how vitamin C may help individuals with cystic fibrosis.

To date, there are more than 160,000 people worldwide who have cystic fibrosis (CF). This is a genetic condition that is characterized by inflammation of the lungs and airway-blocking mucus buildup. Maret Traber of OSU’s Linus Pauling Institute led the study and commented in a press release, “Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that is associated with increased inflammation, and like many inflammatory diseases, it comes with a large amount of oxidative stress.”4

The researchers started with the knowledge that CF influences vitamin E absorption, storage, metabolism and excretion. They hypothesized that it increases the body’s use of vitamin E, which may be influenced by supplementing with vitamin C.

Patients with CF have difficulty absorbing fat and fat-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin E. Traber noted that lower levels of vitamin E in addition to the high oxidative stress environment of CF can increase the inflammatory response in the body.

Patients with CF require at least 400 mg of vitamin E supplemented daily, so using vitamin C to increase utilization could help recycle the oxidized form of vitamin E, and lower oxidative stress and inflammation. The researchers gave patients 1,000 mg of vitamin C daily for three and a half weeks and then measured the blood concentration of malondialdehyde (MDA), a known biomarker of oxidative stress.

The results showed that vitamin E was not eliminated as quickly when patients were supplemented with vitamin C. The researchers concluded5 that vitamin C supplementation in individuals with advanced inflammatory disease could help increase plasma vitamin E and lower the inflammatory response.

“This study used vitamin C far in excess of what someone can easily obtain from the diet,” Traber said.6 “One thousand milligrams is the equivalent of 15 oranges or four or five medium bell peppers. But the research does suggest a high dosage may be beneficial in inflammatory conditions.”

In the press release,7 the researchers noted that the benefits from these findings are not unique to individuals with CF. Health conditions where patients typically have problems associated with high levels of oxidative stress may also benefit from the supplementation of vitamin C, and potentially from extra vitamin E.

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that acts against ROS in your body. Unfortunately, many people in the U.S. do not consume enough vitamin E-rich foods, which puts them at risk of deficiency. Vitamin E is found in nuts, seeds, spinach and broccoli.

Additionally, grass fed butter8 is a rich source of vitamin A in the most absorbable form, vitamin E, vitamin K2, antioxidants, selenium, conjugated linoleic acid, iodine in a highly absorbable form, vitamin D and more. By consuming nutritious whole foods like grass fed butter, you can lower your risk of multiple nutrient deficiencies at once.

Vitamin E plays an important role in protecting your skin from sun-related damage, especially when it’s combined with vitamin C.9 An article from Oregon State University’s Micronutrient Information Center discusses many of the functions of vitamin E in the skin and notes that “vitamin E can also absorb the energy from ultraviolet (UV) light. Thus, it plays important roles in photoprotection, preventing UV-induced free radical damage to skin.”10

Natural vitamin E includes a total of eight different compounds and having a balance of all eight helps optimize its antioxidant functions. These compounds are divided into two groups of molecules — tocopherols and tocotrienols.

Synthetic vitamin E supplements typically include only alpha-tocopherol, and research11 12 published in 2012 concluded that synthetic alpha tocopherols found in vitamin E supplements provided no discernible cancer protection while gamma and delta tocopherols found in foods do help prevent colon, lung, breast and prostate cancers. Bear in mind that a supplement will not actually tell you it’s synthetic, so you must know what to look for on the label.

Boosting your vitamin C intake also affects the inflammatory response in the body. Vitamin C is a crucial component of a treatment protocol developed by Dr. Paul Marik, a critical care doctor at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in East Virginia. The treatment protocol was developed for sepsis, which is a life-threatening condition triggered by a systemic infection that causes your body to overreact and launch an excessive and damaging immune response.

According to a 2011 paper,13 the coagulation system, which is dysfunctional in sepsis, is closely related to the inflammatory response. The communication between the two systems drives the dysregulated response that ultimately results in a very high mortality rate.

Unless sepsis is diagnosed promptly and treated appropriately, it can progress rapidly to multiple organ failure and death. This includes cases of suspected influenza14 since sepsis can mimic many of the signs and symptoms of flu. Although severe sepsis has traditionally been linked to bacterial infections, doctors are seeing more patients with severe sepsis that are caused directly by influenza viruses.

Marik’s retrospective before-after clinical study15 showed giving patients 200 mg of thiamine every 12 hours, 1,500 mg of ascorbic acid every six hours, and 50 mg of hydrocortisone every six hours for two days reduced mortality from 40.4% to 8.5%.

As importantly, the treatment has no side effects and is inexpensive, readily available and simple to administer. In other words, there’s virtually no risk involved. Research published in 202016 17 found Marik’s sepsis protocol lowered mortality in pediatric patients as well.

Utilizing vitamin C in the treatment of sepsis may help lower both mortality rate and cost. Each year an estimated 1.7 million Americans get sepsis, and nearly 270,000 of them die.18

Conventional treatment focuses on high-dose antibiotics. A U.S. government report published in 2016 noted that sepsis was the most expensive condition treated in the U.S., racking up $23.7 billion in health care costs each year.19 By 2022, that had skyrocketed to $62 billion just for treatment and care.20

Marik is also the chairman and chief scientific officer of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC). Marik, along with Dr. Pierre Kory and other international physicians, developed protocols for the prevention, early treatment, hospital treatment and long-haul symptoms of COVID-19. The team found that vitamin C plays a significant role in the prevention and treatment of active infections.21

According to the National Cancer Institute,22 chronic inflammation can increase your risk of DNA damage and lead to cancer. Evidence23 is also growing that inflammation is a critical component of the progression of cancer and the microenvironment of cancer cells is largely orchestrated by inflammation, which fosters the proliferation and migration of neoplastic cells.

The longer the chronic inflammation goes on, the higher the risk of the development of cancer cells and tumors.24 Early studies have suggested that vitamin C could be a candidate for cancer treatment, but researchers are still unsure how cancer cells can uptake or metabolize vitamin C.25

While researchers have looked at high-dose intravenously administered vitamin C for palliative care in patients with advanced cancer,26 other literature reports that cancer patients often have a vitamin C deficiency, which is affected by the tumor or by the treatment, such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Administration of IV vitamin C has ameliorated some symptoms and showed an improvement in quality of life when it’s done alone or in combination with oral vitamin C.

The treatment also appears to mitigate ROS in cancer cells without toxicity.27 One paper28 in the Canadian Medical Association Journal published in 2006 found three well-documented cases of patients who had advanced cancers and unexpected long survival times after they received high dose IV vitamin C therapy.

More recently, in a paper29 published in 2020 by the National Cancer Institute, the writers chronicled the history of vitamin C, including in cancer treatment, and noted that small clinical trials in the past did not show a clear rationale for using vitamin C, but “a growing number of preclinical studies are showing how high-dose vitamin C might benefit cancer patients.” They went on to conclude:30

“Importantly, these preclinical studies provide a clear rationale and potential biomarkers that may help personalize the therapeutic approach and identify patient populations that are likely to respond to high-dose vitamin C therapy. Since the mechanisms of action of vitamin C are becoming better defined, we can propose vitamin C combinations in a more rational, hypothesis-driven manner.

In addition, given the current high financial cost of new cancer drugs, it seems rational to improve the effectiveness of current therapies by studying their clinical interactions with vitamin C. In our view, the implementation of this treatment paradigm could provide benefits to many cancer patients.”
