Wow, these stood out to me from my recent readings. In particular, the Jill Stein / Green Party lawsuit was not something I would ever hear about, but could be very helpful in exposing the computer source code problems with “whatever company they are” (Dom In Onion?) (although actually from Jill’s Tweets, the company is ES&S).
The others are self-explanatory. The questions by James Gilliland are currently being asked by more and more people, I’m sure (I’ve already asked and answered all of them to my own satisfaction).
“On October 30, 2020 2016 Green Party Candidate Jill Stein FINALLY won her groundbreaking case that gave her campaign the right to examine voting machine source code in Wisconsin.
“It took Jill Stein four years to win this court case. After witnessing the historic level of fraud in this year’s election it makes us all question the numbers in past elections.
“In 2016 Libertarian voters kept Donald Trump from adding New Hampshire, Minnesota and Maine to his electoral haul. Were those actual Libertarian votes in 2016 or were they switched from Trump to Gary Johnson to prevent him from winning those states?”
Trump Fires Kissinger: Prison Planet has change in Management (Dr. Michael Salla, 11-29-20)
“On November 25, President Donald Trump sacked 11 members of the influential Defense Policy Board. One was Dr. Henry Kissinger who has a long history of advising U.S. Presidents on national security issues. Less known is his involvement in the MJ-12 Group set up to manage the UFO issue in the 1950s, and his subsequent historic role as a liaison between global leaders with extraterrestrial entities. This exopolitics podcast analyses Kissinger’s sacking and its implications for the US, and the rest of the planet.”
General Flynn Pardoned – Warrior Joins Patriots in Coming Revolution (Dr. Michael Salla, 11-30-20)
“On November 25, President Donald Trump issued a full pardon to Lt Gen Michael Flynn that frees him from a politically driven criminal prosecution. The restoration of his security clearances, which had been withdrawn back in Feb 2017 at the start of the prosecution, will allow him to resume working with the Trump administration. Flynn’s knowledge acquired during his tenure as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency will be instrumental in major disclosure initiatives and the revolution that lies ahead.” [link to podcast]
Several Questions to Answer (James Gilliland)
“Why did the outbreak in China end without a vaccine and why is no one talking about it?
“Why does the recommended mask box say will not protect from Cov-19 and why are they saying masks will NOT protect you from smoke when a virus is 1000 times smaller?
“Why is the spike going up and the deaths going down could it be the massive testing with fraudulent test kits and why did some governors of democratic states force infected people into rest homes and hospice care facilities?
“Last question is who stands to make billions with mandatory or forced vaccinations, do they believe in eugenics, population control, what is in the vaccinations and why have so many died or had adverse effects to the vaccinations?”
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a primary liver cancer and a leading cause of death from cancer worldwide. In the U.S. in 2016, liver cancer was the ninth leading cause of cancer-related deaths.1 In 2020, it’s the fifth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men and the seventh leading cause of cancer deaths in women.2 A recent study in mice concluded that restricting calories could reduce cellular stress, improve insulin signaling and prevent steatosis-associated hepatocarcinogenesis.3
Your liver is located under your right ribs below the lung. It’s the largest internal organ and performs several vital functions. The liver metabolizes some nutrients absorbed from the intestines so they can be used by the body. It also manufactures clotting factors, delivers bile to the intestines and metabolizes alcohol, drugs and waste products.4
Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most common form of primary liver cancer. It has two main growth patterns. In some cases, it starts as a single tumor and only spreads late in the disease. The second type starts as many nodules throughout the organ and is found more often in people with cirrhosis. Without adequate liver function, you will die.
Common conventional treatment approaches include radiation, immunotherapy, chemotherapy and surgical removal of the primary tumor. Current research shows restricting calories helps reduce your risk of HCC. To fully appreciate the results of the study, it’s helpful to know how circadian rhythms affect your liver function.
Your Liver Has Its Own Circadian Rhythm
Your body runs on an internal clock system known as your circadian rhythm. Light exposure to photosensors in your eyes relays a signal to your suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) located in the part of the brain called the hypothalamus. The function of your SCN is to synchronize your internal clock, which in turn regulates sleep-wake cycles and other physiological activities.
These include your core body temperature, neuroendocrine function, memory and psychomotor activity. Essentially, the SCN functions as a small pacemaker and is made of multiple circadian oscillator neurons.5 The most important trigger to your SCN is exposure to light.6
The SCN produces an electrical output that uses a specific rhythm, which influences optimal behavioral and physiological mechanisms.7 Several factors can have a negative effect on this, including aging and sleep deprivation.
The SCN is also affected by temperature, food and socialization. Another recent discovery is that your liver has rate-limiting enzymes that are controlled by circadian rhythm.8 Researchers refer to the master clock as the function of your SCN, which regulates your sleep-wake cycles.
However, in the liver, the circadian clock is affected by feeding and fasting to the point where researchers believe it is not connected to your SCN. Animal studies have revealed the metabolic pathways swing independently of other circadian clocks in the body. It affects processes such as NAD+ salvage and glycogen turnover.9
Calorie Restriction May Reset Your Liver
The featured study, published in the journal Liver Cancer, revealed a protective effect from calorie restriction against the development of HCC in animals with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The rodents were genetically manipulated so they spontaneously developed fatty liver and tumors.10
They were broken into two groups. The control group was allowed to eat as much as they liked, and the experimental group had their diet limited to 30% fewer calories for 15 months. At the end of the intervention period, the experimental group showed less oxidative stress, downregulation of procancer mediators, improved autophagy and fewer and smaller tumors than the control group. The researchers wrote:11
“Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the common malignancies and leading causes of cancer-related death worldwide. Persistent infection of hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C virus (HCV), ethanol consumption, and genetic metabolic disorders, such as hemochromatosis, Wilson’s disease, glycogen storage disease, and citrin deficiency, are conventional risk factors for HCC.
Recently, worldwide increases in obesity and metabolic syndrome have raised the prevalence of HCC derived from nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), indicating a close relationship between overnutrition and liver tumorigenesis.
These findings support the notion that persistent 30% reduction of daily food intake is beneficial for preventing steatosis-associated hepatocarcinogenesis caused by HCV core protein.”
The results of the current studies supported past research, which also found dawn-to-dusk fasting yielded a significant improvement on serum lipid profiles, oxidative stress and body mass index.12 Researchers called the combination of metabolic syndrome, NAFLD and hepatocellular carcinoma a “rapidly emerging epidemic,” which requires a cost-effective preventive strategy.
Scientists at Baylor College of Medicine analyzed the data from an animal study finding that the body responded to dietary changes that linked to the circadian system.13 Past research showed how the circadian clock and gut microbiome had independent effects of metabolism. In this study the researchers found, “Disrupting the circadian clock in mouse liver alters the gut microbiome.”14
The change meant the subjects lost less weight. These and other studies have demonstrated the significance of circadian clock control on your liver function. Researchers have found the pathways are affected by eating habits, which can contribute to the development of NAFLD.15
NAFLD Can Progress to Cirrhosis and Cancer
NAFLD is an umbrella term for a range of conditions in the liver that are not associated with alcohol consumption. The main characteristic found with NAFLD is a high amount of fat stored in the liver cells. In some individuals, NAFLD leads to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), characterized by inflammation and progression to advanced scarring (cirrhosis) and liver failure.16
Although the condition happens in those who do not drink alcohol, the damage is similar to that seen with heavy alcohol use. NAFLD often causes no symptoms but may be associated with fatigue or discomfort in the right upper abdomen. The primary complication of both NAFLD and NASH is cirrhosis.
The scarring and fibrotic lesions happen as the liver tries to stop the inflammatory process. As this continues, the fibrosis spreads, leading to swelling of the veins in the esophagus, end-stage liver failure and liver cancer.
Although many people with HCC have cirrhosis, up to 20% develop cancer without liver cirrhosis. These cancers are generally found late, in an advanced stage, since many physicians do not use routine screening in people without cirrhosis.17
Dr. Amit Singal, liver cancer program medical director at the University of Texas, spoke at the 2020 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium calling for more routine screening in people with NAFLD or NASH, with or without cirrhosis. He called for consistent monitoring since finding people at an early stage places the median survival time over five years.18
One headline in the American Journal of Managed Care calls NASH and liver cancer “The New Cancer Headline.”19 It is one of several obesogenic cancers driven by “our fat-promoting environment, nutritional policies, and lifestyle” and “is still relatively unfamiliar outside medical literature.”
Statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that in 2014, 40% of all cancer diagnoses in the U.S. were from obesogenic cancers.20 The rising rate of weight gain appears to run parallel with the rising rate of weight-related cancer, which increased 7% from 2005 to 2014.
Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome Raise the Risk of NAFLD
Obesity and metabolic syndrome are two risk factors for NAFLD. While researchers are not sure why some with NAFLD go on to develop NASH and others don’t, they have identified risk factors for the progression. Data reveal people with Type 2 diabetes, high levels of triglycerides, metabolic syndrome or obesity have a higher likelihood of progressing from NAFLD to NASH.21
Experts estimate that 25% of adults in the U.S. have NAFLD and of those 20% go on to develop NASH.22 In the Latino community, this percentage is much higher. One study found 45% of Hispanics tested in Dallas, Texas, had hepatic steatosis,23 which is diagnosed when at least 5% of the liver weight is fat.24
More children are also being diagnosed with NAFLD, setting them up for a lifetime of health problems. Before 2006, few people knew children could develop NAFLD. That was the year Dr. Jeffrey Schwimmer, professor of pediatrics at the University of California San Diego, published his findings of 742 pediatric autopsies finding an incidence of 13% with fatty liver disease.25
He found the highest rate of fatty liver disease was in obese children and teens. A subsequent study in 2008 found a gene variant called PNPLA3 could increase the risk of fatty liver disease.26
Michael Goran, Ph.D., director of the diabetes and obesity program at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, demonstrated children as young as 8 who had two copies of PNPLA3 and were exposed to high amounts of sugar had 2.36 times more fat in their livers than children without the gene.27
In his current clinical trial, Goran’s team is measuring the impact that education of the child and family has on the development of fatty liver through MRI measurements before and after the intervention.28
Yet, it isn’t just the foods children are consuming that increase their risk of NAFLD. As Goran discovered, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) from sweetened beverages is passed through breast milk. The team discovered this was positively associated with higher body mass of the infant at 6 months and potentially can predispose the child to obesity and fatty liver disease.29
Steps to Lower Your Risk of Metabolic Syndrome
Metabolic inflexibility is one symptom of metabolic syndrome and poor metabolic health. In the current climate, metabolic inflexibility has been associated with poor outcome from COVID-19.30 Symptoms of metabolic syndrome include:
- A large waist circumference
- Prediabetes or Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure or pre-high blood pressure
- High blood triglycerides
- Low HDL cholesterol
The link between poor metabolic health and disease is not new, but it is rising to the forefront in the current pandemic. In my recent interview with Dr. Paul Saladino, he stresses the association between metabolic health and your immune function.
He believes immunometabolism — the connections between metabolism, metabolic health and the immune system — is easily one of the most important, if not the most important, field in emerging medicine. In my interview with Dr. Aseem Malhotra, British cardiologist and author of “The 21 Day Immunity Plan,” he said:
“The real pandemic is poor metabolic health, or metabolic inflexibility. I had become aware, as early on as March, when we were getting data from China and Italy, that there was a clear link between conditions related to excess body fat, in simple terms defined as poor metabolic health, [and] worse outcomes from COVID-19.
We’re talking about conditions like Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and, of course, obesity. And that data kept emerging. That link was so clear, and it wasn’t just out of the blue.”
The top recommendations Saladino uses to improve your metabolic health, and subsequently lower your risk of infectious disease, obesity and obesogenic cancers, include:
Eliminate processed carbohydrates, sugars, grains and vegetable oils — “I think that from a food perspective, those are the key evils that are really wreaking havoc on our metabolism,” Saladino said in our interview. The worst culprit of them all is probably vegetable oils. “Polyunsaturated vegetable oils are highly oxidizable and very metabolically damaging. So, start with them,” he advises.
For more information about this, see “New Study Tells Why Chicken Is Killing You and Saturated Fat Is Your Friend,” which features Saladino’s interview with science journalist and author Nina Teicholz. Saladino also reviews the mechanisms by which vegetable oils wreck health in greater detail in this interview, so be sure to listen to it in its entirety or read through the transcript.
Eat grass fed animal foods — As noted in a paper published in Nutrients, deficiencies that can compromise immune function include vitamins, A, C, D, E, B2, B6, B12, folate, iron, selenium and zinc.31 These vitamins are primarily found in animal foods, which is why shunning animal foods tends to lead to nutrient deficiencies.
If you can’t stomach the idea of organ meats, consider using a desiccated supplement, such as those Saladino sells.32
Time-restricted eating — Compressing the window of time in which you eat down to six to eight hours a day, eating your last meal at least three hours before bedtime, is another powerful strategy to improve your insulin sensitivity.
Be more physically active — This can ameliorate and reduce metabolic disease risk markers. Be mindful not to go overboard, since excessive exercise will lower your immune function and put you at increased risk of respiratory infections.
Optimize your sleep.
Reduce your stress.
According to media reports, COVID-19 “cases,” meaning positive PCR test results, are soaring across the U.S. and around the world, leading to the implementation of measures that in some cases are stricter than what we endured during the initial wave.
However, as detailed in several recent articles, including “Why COVID-19 Testing Is a Tragic Waste,” PCR tests are being used incorrectly, resulting in the false appearance of widespread transmission.
In reality, the vast majority of people who end up with a positive test will not develop symptoms and aren’t infectious. Needless to say, if you’re not infectious, you pose no health risk to anyone, and being placed under what amounts to house arrest is nothing but cruel and unusual punishment for no reason whatsoever.
Positive Test Rates Have No Bearing on Mortality Rates
In The Highwire report above, Del Bigtree breaks down how excessively high test sensitivity leads to falsely elevated “case” numbers that in reality tell us nothing about the situation at hand. As noted by Bigtree, what’s missing from the COVID-19 conversation is the actual death rate.
“If COVID is a deadly virus, what should we see when cases increase?” he asks. The answer, of course, is an increase in deaths. However, that’s not what’s happening.
Aside from a small bump at the beginning, when doctors were unsure of the appropriate treatment and some states recklessly and irresponsibly sent infected patients into ill equipped nursing homes, the death rate has remained relatively flat while positive test rates have dramatically risen and fallen in intervals.
In the video, Bigtree features a November 4, 2020, tweet1 by White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Scott Atlas showing the number of positive tests (aka “cases”) in blue and COVID-19 related deaths in red, since the start of the pandemic up until the end of October 2020. As you can see, there’s no correlation between the positive test rate and subsequent deaths.
Vast Majority of ‘COVID-19 Patients’ Are Asymptomatic
One of the explanations for why positive test rates and mortality do not go hand in hand is the simple fact that a vast majority of those testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 are asymptomatic. They simply aren’t sick. The PCR test is merely picking up inactive (noninfectious) viral particles.
In one study,2 which looked at pregnant women admitted for delivery, 87.9% of the women who tested positive for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 had no symptoms. Another study3 looked at a large homeless shelter in Boston. After a cluster of COVID-19 cases was observed there, researchers conducted symptoms assessments and testing among all guests residing at the shelter over a two-day period.
Of 408 people tested, 147, or 36%, were positive, yet symptoms were conspicuously absent. Cough occurred in only 7.5% of cases, shortness of breath in 1.4% and fever in 0.7%. All symptoms were “uncommon among COVID-positive individuals,” the researchers noted.
Asymptomatic Transmission Is Very Rare
During a June 8, 2020, press briefing, Maria Van Kerkhove, the World Health Organization’s technical lead for the COVID-19 pandemic, made it very clear that asymptomatic transmission is very rare, meaning an individual who tests positive but does not exhibit symptoms is highly unlikely to transmit live virus to others.
“We have a number of reports from countries who are doing very detailed contact tracing. They’re following asymptomatic cases, they’re following contacts, and they’re not finding secondary transmission … it’s very rare, and much of that is not published in the literature,” Van Kerkhove said.
Just one day later, Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO’s emergencies program, backpedaled Van Kerkhove’s statement, saying the remarks were “misinterpreted.”4 Needless to say, when you’re trying to justify the implementation of a vast surveillance network, it’s no good to admit a vast majority of people are having their privacy infringed upon for no good reason whatsoever.
Asymptomatic People Pose No Risk to Others
Most recently, a study5 in Nature Communications assessed the risk posed by asymptomatic people by looking at the data from a mass screening program in Wuhan, China.
The city had been under strict lockdown between January 23 and April 8, 2020. Between May 14 and June 1, 2020, 9,899,828 residents of Wuhan city over the age of 6 underwent PCR testing. In all, 92.9% of the entire city population participated in the testing. Of these, 9,865,404 had no previous diagnosis of COVID-19 and 34,424 were recovered COVID-19 patients.
In all, there were zero symptomatic cases and only 300 asymptomatic cases detected. (The overall detection rate was 0.3 per 10,000.) Importantly, not a single one of the 1,174 people who had been in close contact with an asymptomatic individual tested positive.
Additionally, of the 34,424 participants with a history of COVID-19, 107 individuals (0.310%) tested positive again, but none were symptomatic. As noted by the authors:6
“Virus cultures were negative for all asymptomatic positive and repositive cases, indicating no ‘viable virus’ in positive cases detected in this study … The 300 asymptomatic positive persons aged from 10 to 89 years …
The asymptomatic positive rate was the lowest in children or adolescents aged 17 and below (0.124/10,000), and the highest among the elderly aged 60 years and above (0.442/10,000). The asymptomatic positive rate in females (0.355/10,000) was higher than that in males (0.256/10,000).”
Asymptomatic People Have Low Viral Load
Interestingly, when they further tested asymptomatic patients for antibodies, they discovered that 190 of the 300, or 63.3%, had actually had a “hot” or productive infection resulting in the production of antibodies. Still, none of their contacts had been infected.
In other words, even though asymptomatics were (or had been) carriers of apparently live virus, they still did not transmit it to others. As noted by the authors, “there was no evidence of transmission from asymptomatic positive persons to traced close contacts.” They further added:7
“Compared with symptomatic patients, asymptomatic infected persons generally have low quantity of viral loads and a short duration of viral shedding, which decrease the transmission risk of SARS-CoV-2.
In the present study, virus culture was carried out on samples from asymptomatic positive cases, and found no viable SARS-CoV-2 virus. All close contacts of the asymptomatic positive cases tested negative, indicating that the asymptomatic positive cases detected in this study were unlikely to be infectious.”
Reinfected Individuals Are Not Infectious Either
The same held true for people who tested positive a second time after having recovered from an active infection.
“Results of virus culturing and contract [sic] tracing found no evidence that repositive cases in recovered COVID-19 patients were infectious, which is consistent with evidence from other sources,” the authors said.8
The researchers also pointed out that virus cultures and genetic studies have shown the virulence of SARS-CoV-2 appears to be weakening over time, and that newly infected individuals are more likely to be asymptomatic and have a lower viral load than the cases seen earlier in the outbreak.
What does all of this tell us? It tells us there’s no reason to panic simply because the number of positive tests are on the rise. Remember, the more people you test using a PCR test that is set to an excessive cycle threshold, the more false positives you’ll get.
As explained in “Asymptomatic ‘Casedemic’ Is a Perpetuation of Needless Fear,” by using an excessive cycle threshold that amplifies the viral RNA to the point that it detects inactive (noninfectious) particles is at the heart of this so-called pandemic. It’s what keeps the pandemic narrative going, when in fact it’s long since over.
CDC Uses Questionable Sources to Counter China Study
Interestingly, the same day the China study came out, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its guidance9,10 on mask wearing, claiming asymptomatic people account for more than half of all transmissions. Where did they get that from?
The two references listed as support for that claim include a study11 from July 2020, and CDC data that haven’t even been published yet.12 It just says it was “submitted” for publication sometime in 2020, therefore, we are unable to provide any source link. The CDC makes no mention of the China study, which included nearly 10 million individuals.
CNN, which reported the CDC’s update, parroting the idea that asymptomatic spread is why it’s so important to wear a mask, also made no mention of the landmark study from China. Curious, don’t you think? It’s almost as though the CDC doesn’t want us to know we have nothing to fear from healthy people.
German Lawyers Sue Fact Checkers Over Censorship
Many doctors, scientists and lawyers have now become wise to the fact that it is these flawed tests, and their fraudulent use, that is keeping the fear narrative alive — and they’re taking action.
In the video above, Ben Swann talks to Dr. Reiner Fuellmich,13 a consumer protection trial lawyer14 and founding member of the German Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee (Außerparlamentarischer Corona Untersuchungsausschuss15),16,17 which is seeking to expose how fraudulent testing has been and continues to be used to engineer the appearance of a dangerous pandemic when in fact there is none.
The committee is now filing the first of many lawsuits to come, this one against so-called fact checkers on social media. They opted to file a defamation lawsuit on behalf of Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, a former member of the German Congress and the Council of Europe who has been an outspoken critic of PCR testing, as it cannot be used to diagnose infection.
Social media companies have labeled Wodarg’s statements as “false,” and by filing a defamation suit, the burden of proof now falls on the fact checkers to prove that they are correct. In other words, to win, the fact checkers must prove that PCR tests diagnose active infection. The scientific evidence proves they don’t, so this case could turn out to be pivotal in the fight against the big tech censorship that keeps the fearmongering alive.
COVID-19 Pandemic — The Greatest Psyop in History?
While Fuellmich and his team make no claims about WHY the pandemic is being kept alive using fraudulent science, they are unequivocal in their assertion that it is in fact a fake pandemic and that it has had devastating health and economic consequences around the world.
For the why, we have to turn to the geopolitical scene to see what narratives have rolled out in tandem with the pandemic. What we find is that leaders across the world are now calling for a “reset” of the global economy in the wake of the destruction brought by the pandemic. In reality, of course, it is the global response to the pandemic that created the economic devastation, not the virus itself.
Either way, the call to “build back better” is being heard around the world, and such plans include the elimination of conventional capitalism, free enterprise and private ownership, replacing them with a technocratic resource-based economic system in which energy and social engineering run the economy rather than pricing mechanisms such as supply and demand.
Leaders are also calling for invasive health surveillance, and there appear to be plans in place to use biometric surveillance via vaccines, all of which feed into the technocratic system in which this kind of mass surveillance is not only paramount but also foundational.
The reason surveillance is so crucial is because the functioning of this system hinges on artificial intelligence-driven social engineering and manipulation of the masses. Unless people are locked into what could be described as a digital prison, they won’t comply with what’s coming.
Hook everyone up to a digital centralized banking system, a digital ID and a social credit score, however, and few will have the fortitude to object or speak out against the unelected rulers. Your entire life could easily be upended with the push of a button.
We’ve already seen how many people have not only been deplatformed for speaking out against one thing or another this past year, they’ve also had their digital payment accounts closed down, effectively destroying their ability to earn a living. Imagine if there were nothing but a centralized digital currency system and your accounts got shut down. How would you live?
Fear Is a Highly Effective Manipulation Tool
No person in their right mind would agree to this Great Reset plan if they were aware of all the details and its ultimate implications for humanity as a whole. So, to roll it out, they had to use psychological manipulation, and fear is the most effective tool there is.
As explained by psychiatrist Dr. Peter Breggin, there’s an entire school of public health research that focuses on identifying the most effective ways to frighten people into accepting desired public health measures.
By adding confusion and uncertainty to the mix, you can bring an individual from fear to anxiety — a state of confusion in which you can no longer think logically — and in this state, you are more easily manipulated. The following graphic illustrates the central role of fearmongering for the successful rollout of the Great Reset.
In closing, testing asymptomatic people and isolating people who test positive even when they have no symptoms is a key strategy that keeps the fear level high. There simply aren’t enough hospitalized COVID-19 patients to keep the ruse going, and far too few actually die to make the narrative work. That’s why we hear nothing about those statistics anymore.
Instead, all we hear about are the “cases” — the positive tests which have no bearing on mortality rates. Fear of asymptomatics also drive the narrative that we must all wear face masks everywhere we go, because you don’t know who might be infected and not know it. It instills fear of others, as even seemingly healthy people might make you deathly ill.
The featured study from Wuhan demonstrates the fallacy of such fears. People who test positive but have no symptoms are not infectious and pose no risk to others. They don’t need to wear masks and they don’t need to be isolated. In short, we don’t need to fear each other.

“Pets need a vaccination passport when travelling between the UK and Europe”
By Christopher Hope,
British travellers who have been inoculated against coronavirus could have their passports stamped to show they have had the vaccine in a boost for the tourism industry, The Telegraph can disclose.
The new ‘vaccine stamps’ would allow tourists to avoid being held up at borders if the international travel industry starts to pick up in the middle of next year as the pandemic subsides.
The stamps are being considered by ministers at the Department for Transport (DfT) as a significant way to boost the aviation industry by giving a degree of certainty to travellers planning overseas holidays next summer.
The news came as the Government secured an additional 2 million doses of Moderna Covid-19 vaccine, which is due to be available early next year and has been shown in trials to be 95 per cent effective.
The deal means the UK now has access to a total of 357 million doses of vaccines from seven different developers.
Airlines are likely to demand that passengers are vaccinated against coronavirus before they are allowed to board their planes.
Last week Qantas’ chief executive Alan Joyce said it would be a “necessity” for passengers to be inoculated before travelling.
The airline’s terms and conditions of travel could now be amended to say that international travelers must be vaccinated before they can board a Qantas plane.
Jill Chung, a spokesperson for Korean Air, South Korea’s largest airline, also said there was a real possibility that airlines will require that passengers be vaccinated because governments may require this as a condition for lifting quarantine for arrivals. Air New Zealand has also echoed a similar position.
Vaccine stamps as proof of being vaccinated were raised last week by Tory MP James Sunderland who asked Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, whether he had considered “the utility of having vaccination stamps in passports, or an equivalent scheme, to get our plans off the ground”.
Mr Johnson replied that his transport secretary Grant Shapps was “looking at all such schemes” and could offer an assurance that he had heard the call “loud and clear”. [What “call” LOL? The only reason there is a demand is because you’re mandating it.]
Sources confirmed that the stamps were being examined at the DfT, where Aviation minister Robert Courts is said to be “upbeat and supportive” of the plan.
Mr Sunderland told The Telegraph: “Pets need a vaccination passport when travelling between the UK and Europe and this would be a fantastic way of ensuring freedom of movement for people too. [Now you can be just like a pet! Freedom of movement!]
“We must do everything possible to boost the economy by re-opening our travel, hospitality, leisure and business sectors and how fantastic would it be to have our planes, trains and boats full again.
“A vaccination stamp is simple, would save all the hassle at either end and really boost confidence.”
The DfT was approached for comment.
The Government’s additional two million Moderna doses mean that the UK has now secured 7 million doses of Moderna vaccine, which will be available in Europe as early as the spring.
The UK now has access to enough doses of Moderna’s vaccine candidate for around 3.5 million people.
