Phoenix, America's inflation capital, seeing record lines at food banks as desperate locals struggle to eat

(Natural News) The worst place in the country to live right now in terms of inflation is Phoenix, where reports indicate a record number of struggling locals are lining up at food banks just to eat.

The latest figures show that Phoenix is still the hardest-hit city with a 12.1 percent inflation rate. As a result, St. Mary’s Food Bank, as one example, is seeing a daily lineup of hundreds of cars in three lanes around its local warehouse. In an average week, some 1,000 cars pass through the facility for food.

“Every time we thought we hit a peak, it continued to grow and here we are, in December,” said Ken Pertis, president of what is the world’s first food bank. “Across our whole network, we’ve seen a 26 percent increase in the number of people coming to us right, year over year.”

Right now, Phoenix residents are having to shell out about 21.1 percent more for food and other goods compared to what they were paying at the end of 2020. This averages out to about $912 in additional spending per month for area residents.

One local named Desirea Lopez, 36, started getting food support at St. Mary’s after her family’s home rent increased another $25 to $1,450 per month. Turning down the lights and energy usage coupled with relying on St. Mary’s for a little extra help is keeping Lopez’s family fed.

“It’s very important coming here because sometimes if I don’t get the chance to come, then we start missing out on the meal,” she said. “I won’t eat. She’ll eat first.” (Related: Everything seems to be converging towards a global calamity, the likes of which has never before occurred in human history.)


Will inflation subside or get worse in 2023?

The price of gas is also hitting families hard, though one bit of good news is that gas prices have subsided some since their all-time highs earlier this year. It remains to be seen what happens with gas and other prices in 2023.

The lines for food in the lead-up to Christmas at St. Mary’s were not quite as hectic as the week before Thanksgiving when people were coming there in search of turkeys for their families, according to Pertis.

“It was probably three, four miles each way,” he said about the Thanksgiving lines.

Many of the people who showed up for that holiday were first-time visitors who had never before used a food bank. This speaks volumes as to the dire state of the economy when people who were previously living just fine are suddenly finding themselves in poverty.

“They’re not here because they want to be here but because they have nowhere else to turn,” Pertis said. “It’s the impact of the economic insecurity caused by inflation.”

One of the reasons why Phoenix’s inflation rate is substantially higher than that of the rest of the country has to do with its real estate market, according to Pertis.

“After COVID, we had the federal government putting money into the economy with stimulus packages and we had the Federal Reserve making borrowing almost nothing,” he explained.

“That allowed a lot of investors to either move up in their homes or buy additional homes. Now that impact was more pronounced in the high growth areas that typically do well for investors.”

Pertis also blamed lots of people moving to Arizona from other states, especially during COVID. He told the media that it helped drive up demand and thus prices.

“When they come here, the prices go up for everything,” he stated.

Top Insurance Analyst: High-Vax Regions Show a 15% Higher Mortality Rate in 2022 Than in 2021

“The slope goes the wrong way.”

“I have some never-before-seen anywhere — wasn’t in D.C. [data],” announced Josh Stirling as he joined Edward Dowd and Steve Kirsch Thursday (12/22/22) during a live video stream.

Mr. Josh Stirling is a highly-recognized insurance research analyst. And his eye-opening testimony during Ron Johnson’s (R-WI) Covid-19 vaccine hearing made quite a splash on December 7.

He has an entire catalog of data that he could cite, but this particular information he presented to VSRF provides some damning evidence against the Covid-19 injections.

Here’s the Chart

It’s a scatter plot, which includes the CDC’s data on vaccination rates. On the X axis (left and right) is the number of Covid-19 injection doses per 100 population. And on the Y axis (up and down) is the all-cause mortality rate of 2022 compared to 2021 (2022 mortality divided by 2021 mortality).

And as you can see, as the number of doses per 100 population increases, so does all-cause mortality.

“The fact that it’s upwardly sloping to the right and the regression line makes this simple to understand. But [what] you could see, even without the regression line, is basically that the parts of our country which have had more doses of the vaccine are now having higher increased mortality in 2022 relative to their levels in 2021,” explained Stirling.

Josh then takes the data “one step further.”

Each dose of the Covid-19 injection, according to Josh’s chart, is associated with about a 7% increase in mortality on average. And overall, highly-vaccinated regions saw a 15% higher 2022 mortality rate than 2021.

He explains, “If we went down the slope (the red dotted line), you can see that if we were at zero doses, we would have something like 14% lower deaths [than 2021]. But if you go one step further. Thank goodness everybody didn’t take the vaccine! Because you can see that these things are anchored at around 200 doses per [100] persons. Well, we were supposed to take 400 — or 500 if you’re over 50. And so actually, if you just do the math on this, if we had followed the CDC’s advice, instead of having a 14 or 15% higher mortality, we would probably have [around] a 28 or 35% higher mortality rate, right now!”

Josh then expresses gratitude for those who woke up and stopped taking shots or took no shots at all.

“Just thank goodness we didn’t all take the shots. And those of us who took one stopped at one, and those that took two realized they didn’t need to take a booster.”

“It’s — it’s stunning,” replied Steve Kirsch. “If Chris Martenson was doing a video on this slide, I know what he would say.”

“He would say, ‘The slope goes the wrong way.’” In simple terms, the more you vaccinate, the higher your mortality.

Pfizer's covid jab could kill you, but New Zealand government wants you to not worry and get injected anyway

Image: Pfizer’s covid jab could kill you, but New Zealand government wants you to not worry and get injected anyway

(Natural News) Excess deaths continue to soar in New Zealand, where Medsafe, the nation’s official drug safety authority, now admits that covid “vaccines” are more than likely to blame. Still, the agency says, New Zealanders should continue to get jabbed and not worry about such risks – just because.

All-cause deaths in New Zealand are currently 15 percent higher than what is normally the case for the country. Evidence continues to mount showing that mRNA (messenger RNA) shots are the most likely culprit, and yet nothing is being done to protect people.

“By chance, some people will experience new illnesses or die from a pre-existing condition shortly after vaccination, especially if they are elderly,” reveals the 46th report from Medsafe on covid vaccine safety, entitled “Adverse events following immunisation with COVID-19 vaccines.”

“Therefore, part of our review process includes comparing natural death rates to observed death rates following vaccination, to determine if there are any specific trends or patterns that might indicate a vaccine safety concern.”

(Related: Remember in the summer of 2020 when Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called for all New Zealanders who tested positive for covid to be thrown into quarantine camps?)

New Zealand barely even tracks adverse events following vaccination, so how can the government make these bogus claims?

Medsafe followed up its report with a disclaimer basically suggesting that the shots are not all that dangerous, even though they clearly are. The group cited comparative data between what is reported to CARM (Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring), which is New Zealand’s version of VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System), within 21 days following vaccination and the background rate of deaths from natural causes as “evidence” that the shots are still safe enough to trust.


The problem with CARM, just like the problem with VAERS, is that reporting is voluntary, which means it is massively underreported. Even worse than VAERS, CARM is said to be underreported by an estimated factor of 20 times.

“As a result, there is nothing at all reassuring about this safety report,” says The Exposé about its findings.

Another problem with New Zealand’s government reporting is that autopsies are not routinely performed on deaths that occur in close proximity to covid vaccination, which begs the question: why?

“The Ministry of Health has consistently refused / omitted to record vaccine status on death certificates or make CARM reporting mandatory,” further adds The Exposé. “This makes it very difficult to scientifically and reliably investigate any causal relationship between mRNA vaccination and death or serious illness.”

It would appear as though almost no efforts are being made in New Zealand to track much of anything concerning the shots and potentially associated injuries and deaths. How, then, can Medsafe make the claim that there is nothing to worry about in association with getting vaccinated?

“Despite having multiple sources of data and methods of analysis available to it, Medsafe has relied for two years on a single obviously flawed method of comparing CARM data to background rates, despite admitting CARM data is underreported,” The Exposé says. “How strange is that? This deficiency is fatal to Medsafe’s claims of safety.”

“It is scientifically unjustifiable and it wouldn’t meet publication criteria. There is no possible justification for omitting to use more reliable forms of causal investigation. Medsafe has avoided public accountability by refusing to debate the issues publicly, omitting publication of key health data, massaging published data, and unforgivably accusing critics of spreading disinformation. These approaches are worthy of a dictatorship but not a modern democracy.”

Russia claims U.S. moving bioweapons research facilities out of Ukraine

Image: Russia claims U.S. moving bioweapons research facilities out of Ukraine

(Natural News) For Americans who are confused about why U.S. politicians and the West, in general, are so hell-bent on helping Ukraine beat back Russia’s invasion — and are convinced that it is something more than just to hide Biden family corruption in the country — Russian officials have just provided the explanation.

It seems as though Ukraine is home to bioweapons research facilities, which Moscow says are now being relocated to other countries in Asia and eastern Europe, Russia Today reported, quoting state officials:

Washington has been moving its bioweapons research out of Ukraine, the head of Russia’s Nuclear Biological and Chemical Defense Troops has claimed. This comes after the research laboratories’ existence was exposed under the Trump presidency. 

“The Pentagon is actively working to transfer its unfinished research projects to the countries in Central Asia and Eastern Europe,” Igor Kirillov claimed during a briefing over the Christmas weekend.

In addition, he says, the Biden regime has been increasing its cooperation with Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore, Kenya, and other countries in Africa as well as the Indo-Pacific, with “the US Department of Defense being most interested in countries that already possess laboratories with a high level of bio?ontainment,” he added.

According to Kirillov, information about illegal American-backed labs in Ukraine was given to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons conference, which met in Geneva between Nov. 28 and Dec. 16.

The information included “documentary evidence that work with components of biological weapons and studies of pathogens of especially dangerous and economically significant infections had been carried out on the territory of Ukraine with financial, scientific, technical and personnel support of the U.S.,” he said.

Brighteon.TV noted further:

Papers obtained by Russia during its military operation in Ukraine reveal that “military-biological programs” were run through the Mechnikov Anti-Plague Research Institute in Kyiv, the Institute of Veterinary Medicine in Kharkov and the Lviv-based Research Institute of Epidemiology and Hygiene, Kirillov claimed.

The files also mentioned three Pentagon contractors and seven high-ranking officials of the US Department of Defense, he added.

The full text of a report from the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) regarding the agency’s work in Ukraine, which was reportedly discovered by Russian forces, contained information “confirming the conduct of exercises and training activities with pathogens of especially dangerous infections” inside Ukraine, according to the Russian commander. The Pentagon has supposedly released a copy of the report to the public, but reported that around 80 percent of the information had been redacted. So really, the Defense Department did not release anything useful.

Kirillov went on to state that the head of the U.S. delegation to the conference would not respond to Russian accusations that Washington was in violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention.

“Such a stance by the US and its blocking of any initiatives to resume work on the verification mechanism of the CWC once again confirms that Washington has something to hide, and that ensuring transparency in terms of compliance with the convention doesn’t play into the hands of the Americans,” said the Russian commander.

But, he assured, the report from Russia was not unnoticed by other countries and, in fact, “made many member states reflect on the risks posed by cooperation with Washington in the military-biological area,” he added.

Vladimir Putin’s government has gradually begun to release materials detailing work at U.S.-supported biolabs in Ukraine. The effort began in March, shortly after Russia invaded. The Biden regime has denied Moscow’s claims that the U.S. has funded bioweapons research in Ukraine, but if true — and there is no reason yet to doubt it — Congress’ rush to continue funding Ukraine’s defense even as our own military suffers and as our own borders are being violated now makes much more sense.

Cleveland Clinic publishes study showing that mRNA jabs INCREASE covid risk with each subsequent “boost”

Image: Cleveland Clinic publishes study showing that mRNA jabs INCREASE covid risk with each subsequent “boost”

(Natural News) Every time a person gets injected with a covid “vaccine” or “booster,” his or her risk of testing “positive” for covid and later getting sick or dying increases substantially, according to a new study from the Cleveland Clinic.

The paper appeared on the pre-print server medRxiv, showing that getting “vaccinated” and “boosted” for covid with mRNA (messenger RNA) chemicals makes a person more – not less – prone to succumbing to injury or death.

The highest risk, unsurprisingly, exists in those who get three or more injections as opposed to just the first two or three.

“The association of increased risk of COVID-19 with higher numbers of prior vaccine doses in our study, was unexpected,” wrote the study’s authors, who include Nabin K. Shrestha, Patrick C. Burke, Amy S. Nowacki, James F. Simon, Amanda Hagen, and Steven M. Gordon.

For their research, the aforementioned looked at 51,011 Cleveland Clinic workers – the institution is massive – to see how well the new so-called “bivalent” mRNA injection is performing.

We are told that only 21 percent of the group’s 51,011 employee base took the bivalent shot, which was deemed to have an effectiveness rate of just 30 percent. Overall, five percent of all workers in the study contracted covid during the 13-week analysis period.

“Protection provided by vaccination (analyzed as a time-dependent covariate) was evaluated using Cox proportional hazards regression,” the study’s abstract explains. “The analysis was adjusted for the pandemic phase when the last prior COVID-19 episode occurred, and the number of prior vaccine doses received.”


Among the 51,011 employees evaluated, 41 percent had at least one previously documented case of covid while 83 percent had received at least two doses of a covid injection.

“In multivariable analysis, the bivalent vaccinated state was independently associated with lower risk of COVID-19 (HR, .70; 95% C.I., .61-.80), leading to an estimated vaccine effectiveness (VE) of 30% (95% CI, 20-39%),” the study further explains.

“Compared to last exposure to SARS-CoV-2 within 90 days, last exposure 6-9 months previously was associated with twice the risk of COVID-19, and last exposure 9-12 months previously with 3.5 times the risk.”

All in all, it was determined that the shots do not work as claimed. None of them seem to prevent infection, and many of the people who take them end up getting sick or dying. So much for “safe and effective.” (Related: Remember in 2014 when the Cleveland Clinic started using Traditional Chinese Medicine [TCM] to treat patients?)

Cleveland Clinic adds disclaimer to study about it not being “peer reviewed” – because the results defy the official narrative

The fact that medRxiv even allowed this new study to appear on its pre-print server at all is a feat in and of itself, considering the platform has a new policy against studies that contradict the official story about covid “vaccines.”

Perhaps the paper was allowed because the Cleveland Clinic included a special disclaimer that calls into question its own findings. It reads:

“This article is a preprint and has not been certified by peer review. It reports new medical research that has yet to be evaluated and so should not be used to guide clinical practice.”

The suggestion, of course, is that peer review is an essential component of “valid” science, even though it is an inherently corrupt and worthless process that is not what the scientific community has made it out to be.

“So, NOW is it fair to say these are NOT ‘vaccines’ in any sense of the word???” asked a commenter in response to these latest scientific revelations.

“How many professionals, like Dr. Malone, did Twitter and Facebook censor for saying this early on?” responded another.

Conditions were so severe that even emergency responders needed rescuing,” Zero Hedge reported, noting further that the disaster was being compounded by knuckleheads who used the occasion to increase their criminal behavior.

Atlas News, an independent media outlet, also reported that the looting was far more widespread:

At approximately 1730 EST, reports began to emerge in local media of looting incidents in Buffalo, NY, where residents are becoming desperate after three days of intense snowfall and cold temperatures. New York State Police confirmed the looting incidents.
