Per the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) this morning, “Supreme Court Blocks Vaccine Mandate for Large Businesses” explaining “The Supreme Court has blocked the Administration’s COVID-19 vaccine-or-test mandate for workers at large private businesses. The mandate required that workers at businesses with 100 or more employees must get vaccinated or submit a negative COVID test weekly to enter the workplace. It also required unvaccinated workers to wear masks indoors at work.” MHI are quite right on that point. But that does not address other related issues that have impacted manufactured housing professionals and the nation at large for approaching two years. It is no exaggeration to say that the declared COVID19 pandemic has been one of the most-disruptive events to business and society in the 21st century. Terms like “essential workers” emerged, as if all the employed were not in some sense important to their employers. Some professions and businesses were prioritized over others. A rather novel approach to disease prevention was employed in dozens of nations. Instead of locking down the infected, a broad social lockdown was imposed even on the healthy, with the aim of preventing the spread of infection. The coronavirus obviously spread anyway. Approaching two years since the declaration of the pandemic and the later “two weeks to flatten the curve” has demonstrated that the billions spent annually intelligence and public health procedures that were supposed to prevent just a pandemic has demonstrably failed. Even after the Supreme Court struck down the Biden Administration mandate, there are still firms that want to press their employees to get ‘the jab’ anyway. Against that backdrop, recent developments from the medical world and various research reports from the U.S. and beyond reveal that the much touted Omicron variant could lead to the end of the pandemic – by transitioning COVID19 into something more “endemic,” like the annual common flu.
What follows will include information from mainstream/official as well as alternative sources. There will be inputs from the left and right. It will paint a picture of the evolving scenario. The rising dissatisfaction with COVID19 related policies has sparked a protest planned in Washington, D.C. on 1.23.2022. NPR said on 1.18.2022 that: “Defeat the Mandates: An American Homecoming” event” is coming to Washington, D.C. “and that 40,000 people allegedly registered.” Time will tell if that protest will be small, medium, or large in size and scope. What is certain is that in Europe and Australia, among other places, protests have pressed the British government – for instance – to apparently signal an end to all mandates in March.
COVID related policies under the current and prior presidential administrations
There have been massive winners and losers. Per Inequality.org – affiliated with the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), which receives funding from the Warren Buffett affiliated NoVo Foundation nonprofit – said the following on 10.18.2021.
- S. Billionaire Wealth Surged by 70%, or $2.1 Trillion, During Pandemic; They Are Now Worth a Combined $5 Trillion
- America’s billionaires have grown $2.1 trillion richer during the pandemic, their collective fortune skyrocketing by 70 percent — from just short of $3 trillion at the start of the COVID crisis on March 18, 2020, to over $5 trillion on October 15 of this year, according to Forbes data analyzed by Americans for Tax Fairness (ATF) and the Institute for Policy Studies Program on Inequality (IPS).
- “The $5 trillion in wealth now held by 745 billionaires is two-thirds more than the $3 trillion in wealth held by the bottom 50 percent of U.S. households estimated by the Federal Reserve Board.”
- “The great good fortune of these billionaires over the past 19 months is even starker when contrasted with the devastating impact of coronavirus on working people. Almost 89 million Americans have lost jobs, over 44.9 million have been sickened by the virus, and over 724,000 have died from it.”
The Guardian reported days before (10.7.2021) that “Billionaires’ wealth rises to $10.2 trillion amid Covid crisis.” Per that source: “The findings from the UBS report showing that the super-rich are getting even richer are a sign that capitalism isn’t working as it should.” More details are found below.
MHProNews reported in 2020 that has stood the test of time. Among our reports that foreshadowed those headlines?
By following the facts, evidence, historic precedents, and applying common sense, a series of still relevant reports presaged several mainstream sources by months.
Some still insist on narrative that have since been debunked, and which demonstrated that even though some of our reports were controversial from much of the mainstream perspective, the facts have born out those reports and analysis. Why? Because MHProNews looked at sources that included medical and science and intelligence voices that dared challenge the dominant press. The Great Barrington Declaration – with thousands of healthcare and science co-signers – is as prudent today as it was in 2020.
As left-of-center and controversial Robert F. Kennedy Jr. dared proclaim, science is in part a matter of debating the evidence. Science isn’t – or shouldn’t be – imposed from the top down. Science should be based on evidence and include in the medical profession the ancient principle of “first do no harm” espoused by the Hippocratic Oath. As Harvard Health says: “first do no harm” is the translation of the ancient “primum non nocere,” the Latin translation from the original Greek.” Or as the late Dr. (Rev) Martin Luther King Jr said, the purpose of education (information) is to learn to think deeply and critically. The goal is not to be a fine follower, but to be consider the evidence and be able to apply reason that allows the individual to come to their own conclusions.
The following reports include one from Dr. Joseph Mercola, who despite being censored and pressured by some has proven to be prescient on several fronts with respect to COVID19. They will be followed by others that probe aspects of the latest facts emerging from other research. That will be followed by our Daily Business News macro- and manufactured home specific stock market updates and left-right headlines summaries.
Pandemic Narrative Undergoes Radical U-Turn
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola – Fact Checked
January 19, 2022
- In recent days, the pandemic narrative has undergone a remarkable number of U-turns
- January 9, 2022, CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky sent out a tweet saying “We must protect people with comorbidities from severe COVID-19,” in other words, focused protection, which is what tens of thousands of doctors have been calling for since the creation of The Great Barrington Declaration in early October 2020
- January 10, 2022, Walensky admitted that the COVID shots cannot prevent transmission
- The CDC is now saying you should not retest once you’ve recovered from COVID, as the PCR can provide false positives for up to 12 weeks after the infection has been resolved. They’re also cutting the isolation requirement from 10 to just five days — probably because the failing economy is hurting Biden’s approval rating so they need people to work
- The narrative is also changing on what makes for a COVID case and how deaths are counted. Walensky recently admitted about 40% of “COVID patients” tested positive but do not have symptoms and are hospitalized for something else. She has also promised to deliver data on how many people have actually died “from” COVID and how many died “with” it
As noted by Dr. Ron Paul in the January 10, 2022, Liberty Report above, U.S. authorities have suddenly started to change their tune with regard to COVID and the COVID shots.
“The opposition to our position are starting to wake up,” Paul says, as some shreds of truth are actually starting to be acknowledged. The good news, Paul says, is that “Maybe some of the things they’ve been saying are not quite accurate, and maybe what we’ve been saying is closer to the truth, and maybe they’re starting to recognize that.”
CDC Director Now Calls for Focused Protection
Indeed, in recent days, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has made a remarkable number of U-turns, completely reversing course on several narrative points.
For example, in a January 10, 2022, CNN interview, CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky actually admitted that “what [the COVID shots] can’t do anymore is prevent transmission,”1 whereas before, the narrative was that if you get the jab, you have nothing to worry about anymore. In July 2021, President Biden promised that if you get vaccinated, “you’re not going to get COVID.”2 Well, it wasn’t true. Many knew that, but were censored when pointing it out.
A day earlier, January 9, Walensky also sent out a tweet saying “We must protect people with comorbidities from severe COVID-19,” which is what tens of thousands of doctors have been calling for since the creation of The Great Barrington Declaration in early October 2020. It called for focused protection of high-risk individuals, such as the elderly, rather than blanket lockdowns.
It was recently revealed that Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and his former boss, now retired National Institutes of Health (NIH) director Francis Collins, colluded behind the scenes to quash the declaration.3 For whatever reason, Fauci and Collins were hell-bent on pushing economy-destroying lockdowns instead. In an October 8, 2020, email to Fauci, Collins wrote:4,5,6,7
“The proposal from the three fringe epidemiologists who met with the Secretary seems to be getting a lot of attention … There needs to be a quick and devastating published take down of its premises …”
“Don’t worry, I got this,” Fauci replied. Later, Fauci sent Collins links to newly published articles refuting the focused protection solution, including an op-ed in Wired magazine, and an article in The Nation, titled “Focused Protection, Herd Immunity and Other Deadly Delusions.”
CDC Follows Political Strategy, Not Science
Now, all of a sudden, Walensky is onboard with the “deadly delusion” of focused protection. Her about-face would be confusing were it not for the fact that COVID countermeasures were never about protecting the public from a virus. From the start, the pandemic had political goals, and it still does.
The pressure is now on to prove the Biden administration has made some sort of progress with the pandemic. Biden made a lot of promises, none of which have come to fruition, so now the political establishment is scrounging to come up with some plan that can make them look as though they’re getting somewhere.
The problem is that cases are now exploding, when a successful vaccine campaign should have brought the situation under control. So, they now need a way to minimize the number of cases, whereas before, they used every trick in the book to overcount them,8 in order to scare people into complying with COVID restrictions and getting the jab.
New Testing Guidance Aims to Lower Case Rates
One simple way to cut down cases is to limit testing, and that’s another U-turn we’re now seeing. The CDC is now saying you should not retest once you’ve recovered from COVID. If you test positive, just quarantine for five days and don’t retest to confirm that you’re negative, as the PCR can provide false positives for up to 12 weeks after the infection has been resolved.
Well, we’ve known this for nearly two years already. From the start, experts warned that the PCR cannot be used to diagnose an active infection, as it can pick up RNA from dead, noninfectious viral debris.
Health authorities are now spinning the tale that these revisions in guidance are because we have two years’ worth of data, and they’re just following the science. But that’s pure baloney, seeing how the data never supported their COVID restrictions in the first place.
The CDC’s decision to revise quarantine guidelines down from 10 days to just five days also appears politically motivated. Polls show the economy is a primary concern of voting Americans right now, so they need to strike a balance between the desired demolition of the economy and keeping people at work — at least until the 2022 elections are over.
There seems to be a LOT of sudden momentum surging in the direction of ending the pandemic. If I’m right, we’re going to see even more of this, and pretty quickly, since Biden has to wrap it up in time to declare victory on March 1. ~ Jeff Childers
In short, I suspect most if not all of the recent changes in COVID guidance is to build a narrative that the Biden administration has successfully brought the pandemic under control and reestablished a working economy. The change in narrative is based on political strategy, not science.
CDC Highlights Role of Comorbidities in Vaxxed COVID Deaths
Here is the unedited version of Rochelle Walensky’s comments, where it’s clear that her comments about comorbidities were referring solely to a CDC study of vaccinated people, and not to all “Covid deaths,” as ppl like Clay Travis have claimed. pic.twitter.com/Z7oJQv3gem
— James Surowiecki (@JamesSurowiecki) January 11, 2022
As noted by Paul in the Liberty Report above, Walensky recently stated that 75% of COVID deaths had four or more comorbidities, “So, really, these are people who were unwell to begin with.” The admission went viral and was cited as proof that COVID is a lethal risk for none but the sickest among us.
The CDC quickly stepped in, clarifying that she meant “75% of COVID deaths among those who have received the COVID jab,” not COVID deaths overall.9 You can see the unedited segment above, where that context is made clear. Still, we know that COVID poses very little risk for healthy unvaccinated people as well, and that comorbidities are a primary risk factor regardless of your COVID jab status.
COVID Death Risk Has Always Been Low — Vaxxed or Not
For example, a 2020 study10 found 88% of hospitalized COVID patients in New York City had two or more comorbidities, 6.3% had one underlying health condition and 6.1% had none.
In late August 2020, the CDC published data showing only 6% of the total death count had COVID-19 listed as the sole cause of death. The remaining 94% had had an average of 2.6 comorbidities or preexisting health conditions that contributed to their deaths.11 So, yes, COVID is a lethal risk only for the sickest among us, just as Walensky said, but that’s true whether you’re “vaccinated” or not.
As for the study12 Walensky discussed in that “Good Morning America” segment, it found that of the 1.2 million COVID jabbed subjects, only 0.0033% died of COVID between December 2020 and October 2021. (And of those, 77.8% had four or more comorbidities.) This study, Walensky claims as evidence that the COVID shot works wonders to reduce the risk of death.
But does it really? Recall studies13 showing the noninstitutionalized infection fatality rate is on average just 0.26% to begin with, and people under the age of 40 have only a 0.01% risk of dying from COVID.14
When we’re talking about a fraction of a percentage point risk, we’re talking about a risk that is close to statistical zero. So, does lowering your risk of death from 0.01% to 0.003% really translate into something worthwhile? And, more importantly, is that reduction worth the risks involved with taking the jab?
Clearly, it’s not a risk-free decision. OneAmerica, a national mutual life insurance company, recently warned that all-cause deaths among working age Americans (18 to 64) are up 40% over prepandemic norms,15 and they cannot be attributed to COVID.
So, what’s causing these deaths? What potentially deadly thing did tens of millions of Americans do in 2021 that they’ve never done before? I’ll let you ponder whether Walensky’s claim that the COVID jab is saving lives is an accurate one.
CDC Admits Large Portion of ‘COVID Patients’ Aren’t
In another recent media appearance, Walensky stated that:16
“In some hospitals that we’ve talked to, up to 40% of the patients who are coming in with COVID-19 are coming in not because they’re sick with COVID, but because they’re coming in with something else and have had … COVID or the Omicron variant detected.”
This, again, is something that we’ve been highlighting since the start of the pandemic. Most so-called “COVID patients” simply weren’t, and still aren’t. They’re hospitalized for something else entirely, and just happen to get a positive test result upon admission — which very possibly is a false positive. Either way, voila, they’re a COVID patient, even though they’re hospitalized for a broken leg or a heart attack.
As noted by Delta News TV, “Comments like these have cast doubt on the severity of the current COVID surge even as the Supreme Court considers legal challenges to Biden’s sweeping private sector mandates on that very issue.”17
Is the Political Pandemic in Its Final Death Throes?
In a January 10, 2022, blog post,18 Jeff Childers, an attorney, and the president and founder of Childers Law firm, presents a hypothesis for why we might be looking at the end of the pandemic, as the Biden administration has “no reasonable alternative but to wrap this whole thing up in the next 60 days or so.”
“There’s an interesting political dynamic shaping up, a kind of political vice grip that might just be driving federal COVID policy toward authenticity and an end to the pandemic … a lot of reality has been breaking through lately,” Childers writes.19
He points out how a federal judge recently ordered the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to release all the Pfizer COVID jab data that the agency wanted 75 years to release. The bulk of that data is now due March 1, 2022, the day of Biden’s State of the Union address. Childers suspects the Pfizer documents will contain plenty of counternarrative fodder and politically embarrassing details.
Why We’re Seeing a U-Turn in the Narrative Now
Biden needs some good news by his State of the Union address, as it’ll be his last chance to “help move the needle back toward blue,” and the way he can do that is by declaring the pandemic over. He can then claim to be the great liberator who ended the pandemic measures for good.
“If they handle this right, they can give their voting base and sycophantic media agents all the necessary talking points to boost Dem prospects for the midterm elections,” Childers writes.20
But to pull off that U-turn with any semblance of credibility, they have to start cutting the case rate now, and that’s precisely what we’re seeing. For example, the CDC recently changed its guidelines so you don’t need to retest after you’ve recovered from COVID, so no more false positives from recovered people.
Florida’s official policy is now to only test high-risk individuals and those who are symptomatic. Childers points out that the left-leaning Sun Sentinel even ran an article highlighting the fact that despite surging case rates, Florida has the lowest COVID death rate in the nation, second only to the sparsely populated Alaska. “What incredibly powerful force could make the Sun Sentinel downplay the pandemic like this?” he asks.
Will We Finally Get a More Accurate Death Count?
The CDC also appears poised to change the definition of COVID death to what it should have been all along. Childers notes:
“Fox News … Bret Baier … asked [Walensky] ‘how many of the 836,000 deaths in the U.S. linked to COVID are FROM COVID or how many are WITH COVID?’
Director Walensky said … ‘those data will be forthcoming.’ Until about 10 minutes ago, the CDC said it didn’t HAVE any way to track that kind of information … But now, apparently, CDC plans to release information about deaths from and with. What do you want to bet they’ll be REDUCING total COVID deaths shortly? By a lot.”
They’re also starting to accurately count only those who are actually sick with COVID rather than including people hospitalized for other reasons who just happen to test positive.
“Yesterday, New York Governor Hochul announced that almost HALF of patients are hospitalized for ‘non-COVID reasons,’ scattering the rotting corpse of the Narrative.
You might recall that just last week she ordered hospitals to start breaking down the reported figures and showing how many folks ACTUALLY are sick with COVID versus just testing positive in the hospital. We’ve been yelling about overcounting hospitalizations for two years now and they just noticed?”21
Same Narrative Switch Seen in Europe
The same sudden switch in narrative can be seen in Europe. Childers continues:22
“Yesterday, the Guardian UK ran a story headlined, ‘End mass jabs and live with COVID, says ex-head of vaccine taskforce.’ It says Dr. Clive Dix — former chairman of the UK’s vaccine taskforce — has called for a ‘major rethink’ of the UK’s COVID strategy, in effect reversing the approach of the past two years and returning to a ‘new normality.’
Shocking the cores the oft-maligned authors of the Great Barrington Declaration, Dr. Dix — without getting cancelled — said this:
‘We need to analyze whether we use the current booster campaign to ensure the vulnerable are protected, if this is seen to be necessary … Mass population-based vaccination in the UK should now end.’ Ending mass vaccinations? Suddenly that idea is okay to discuss in the corporate media? Wow.”
In a January 3, 2022, interview with the Daily Telegraph, professor Andrew Pollard, head of the U.K.’s Committee on Vaccination and Immunization who helped create the Oxford-AstraZeneca shot, also made a previously verboten statement: “We can’t vaccinate the planet every four or six months,” he said. “It’s not sustainable or affordable.”23 And, like Dix, Pollard was not canceled, censored or deplatformed.
January 11, 2022, Bloomberg also reported that “European Union regulators warned that frequent COVID-19 booster shots could adversely affect the immune response and may not be feasible. Repeat booster doses every four months could eventually weaken the immune response and tire out people, according to the European Medicines Agency.”24
Marco Cavaleri, the EMA’s head of vaccines strategy, said during a January 11, 2022, press briefing:25
“While use of additional boosters can be part of contingency plans, repeated vaccinations within short intervals would not represent a sustainable long-term strategy. [Boosters] can be done once, or maybe twice, but it’s not something that we can think should be repeated constantly. We need to think about how we can transition from the current pandemic setting to a more endemic setting.”
That same day, the World Health Organization’s Technical Advisory Group on COVID-19 Vaccine Composition (TAG-CO-VAC) also issued a statement26 saying that “a vaccination strategy based on repeated booster doses of the original vaccine composition is unlikely to be appropriate or sustainable.”
They also stated that COVID vaccines that actually prevent infection and transmission need to be developed. The timing of all these statements is nothing if not remarkable. It shows just how coordinated this plandemic narrative is, all around the world.
Justice Sotomayor Called Out
Perhaps the best example that the narrative is undergoing a radical overhaul, Childers says, is Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor being fact checked and called out as a liar by The Washington Post:
“You’ll recall that Sotomayor confidently told the lawyers during oral argument Friday that ‘100,000’ children were in critical care and on ventilators with Omicron. The lawyers didn’t challenge her even though there aren’t that many total ICU beds in the whole country.
But on Saturday — the next day! — the Washington Post ran an article headlined, ‘Sotomayor’s false claim that ‘over 100,000’ children are in ‘serious condition’ with COVID.’ FALSE CLAIM?? What?? Here’s how the fact-checking article ended:
‘It’s important for Supreme Court justices to make rulings based on correct data … But Sotomayor during an oral argument offered a figure — 100,000 children in ‘serious condition … many on ventilators’ — that is absurdly high. She earns Four Pinocchios.’ It might be unprecedented for a major liberal newspaper to call out a liberal Justice. What could be going on? …
There seems to be a LOT of sudden momentum surging in the direction of ending the pandemic. If I’m right, we’re going to see even more of this, and pretty quickly, since Biden has to wrap it up in time to declare victory on March 1. Which would explain why they pushed the SOTU back a month. They need the time to get the pandemic wrapped up.”27 ## The PDF of the report with links to references are linked here.
The following are arguably related to the above. They shed additional light via other research and reporting that signals a possible shift from the “pandemic” to an “endemic,” more like the annual flu.

Former FDA chief: Omicron likely ‘signals end of the pandemic’
Dr. Scott Gottlieb counters pessimism of Fauci, WHO chief
By Art Moore
Published January 18, 2022 at 5:58pm
Countering the pessimism of White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci and the World Health Organization chief, former U.S. Food and Drug Administration commissioner Scott Gottlieb said Tuesday there is hope the coronavirus pandemic will be over soon.
Average daily COVID-19 cases have fallen at least 10% in the last week in the United States, and Gottlieb believes that if the virus continues on its present course, it likely will become endemic soon.
“I think the base case is that this signals the end of the pandemic phase of this virus,” Gottlieb told CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
The much more contagious yet considerably milder omicron variant now comprises about 99.5% of the cases in the U.S., according to the CDC. Many U.S. epidemiologists are looking at the hopeful trends in the U.K. and South Africa, where daily cases have fallen rapidly. In South Africa, where omicron was first detected, about 5,000 new cases are being recorded daily, compared to more than 23,000 a day last month. Last Friday, Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul announced New York state had recorded about 48,000 coronavirus cases, a nearly 47% drop from the roughly 90,000 cases reported a week earlier.
Further, British government figures show deaths in England and Wales are below average for this time of year, which the Telegraph of London reported as “the latest sign that the pandemic is coming to an end.”
Prof. Andrew Hayward, a member of the government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies, known as SAGE, said he expected the virus to settle into a seasonal pattern that will cause “much less disruption.”
“We may still get quite big winters of infection but not the sort of level where we can justify wholesale societal closedown,” he told Times Radio. “So I think it is genuinely an optimistic picture.”
Britain’s health secretary, Sajid Javid, said Monday he was cautiously optimistic that COVID-19 restrictions could be “substantially reduced” next week.
Meanwhile, Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Disease, warned at the Davos Agenda virtual event Monday that a new variant could emerge that would prevent the endemic stage of COVID.
“It is an open question as to whether or not omicron is going to be the live virus vaccination that everyone is hoping for,” he said.
On Tuesday, the World Health Organization’s director-general said the world should expect more variants.
“This pandemic is nowhere near over and with the incredible growth of omicron globally, new variants are likely to emerge,” Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a news conference.
He said the virus “is circulating far too intensely with many still vulnerable.”
Gottlieb acknowledged that the “worrisome scenario is that you get something that’s divergent evolution like omicron did.”
“Most people think that’s unlikely to happen, but most people felt that was unlikely to happen before and that delta would be the dominant lineage, and then omicron came along; it had been mutating in a sequestered pocket somewhere and re-emerged into the human circulation.”
In an interview with WND last week, Dr. Peter McCullough said the fact that omicron is presenting symptoms akin to the common cold while being much more contagious than the delta variant could spell the end of the pandemic, serving as a “universal booster.”
See Gottlieb’s remarks:
“We’ve seen this virus continue to drift and undergo gradual evolution…there is a presumption at some point we are going to have a dominant lineage,” says @ScottGottliebMD. “The conventional wisdom right now is it’s likely to be omicron.” pic.twitter.com/6BEEGzDTJs

Fauci joins Xi at Davos, complains U.S. plagued by COVID ‘disinformation’
Chinese communist leader feted at globalist ‘Great Reset’ confab
By Art Moore
Published January 17, 2022 at 7:53pm
Speaking at the globalist World Economic Forum’s virtual Davos summit after it commenced with a speech by “his excellency” Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping, White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci complained the United States is plagued by “disinformation” regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We have disinformation that is entirely destructive to a comprehensive public health endeavor,” Fauci said.
Fauci, in his published writings, has called for “radical changes” in the “infrastructures of human existence,” echoing the “Great Reset” plan promoted by the World Economic Forum and its founder and executive chairman, Klaus Schwab. Early in the pandemic, Schwab wrote that “the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions” and bring out a “‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”

As WND reported, Xi also kicked off the 2021 World Economic Forum conference one year ago, which featured WEF’s Great Reset initiative.
Schwab introduced Xi at the 2021 event by commending China for its “many initiatives” undertaken “in the spirit of creating a world where all actors assume a responsible and responsive role.”
“Mr. President, I believe this is the time to reset our policies and to work jointly for a peaceful and prosperous world,” Schwab said to Xi.
Fauci’s “disinformation” charge comes as many top health officials and scientists continue to walk back their stances on masks, lockdowns, vaccines and other efforts to combat COVID-19, confirming the claims of esteemed scientists they have dismissed as “fringe” and conspiracy theorists.”
One “former conspiracy theory” is the lab-leak origin of the pandemic, which is now seen as the most plausible theory by leadings scientists. The idea that it should be dismissed as mere “conspiracy” was planted by the Fauci-funded scientist Peter Daszak in a letter published in The Lancet, which has now been rescinded by the prestigious British medical journal.
In November, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla charged people are spreading “misinformation” about the vaccines, calling them “criminals” who have cost “millions of lives.”
However, this month Bourla acknowledged that two doses of his vaccine “offer very limited protection, if any” against the dominant omicron variant.
And he said the mRNA vaccines “don’t have the safety profile that we hoped we can achieve with this technology.”
The FDA approved the Pfizer shot for kids one week after an FDA advisory panel voted to recommended it for young children, despite acknowledging the lack of safety data and the nearly 100% survival rate for children from infection.
Three Pfizer scientists were captured on hidden camera in a Project Veritas investigation admitting, contrary to the claims of Fauci and other public health officials, that natural immunity is superior to the immunity afforded from COVID vaccines.
Last week, Dr. Peter McCullough – a renowned cardiologist and highly published medical scientist whose confrontation of the government’s COVID-19 policies has drawn more than 40 million views on Joe Rogan’s podcast – told WND in a video interview the official pandemic narrative is “completely crumbling.”
That narrative, he said, included “false statements regarding asymptomatic spread, reliance on lockdown and masks – which obviously didn’t work – the suppression of early treatment, the mass promotion of vaccines that failed.”
“And now here we are, almost in complete free fall,” McCullough said, referring to the record number of COVID-19 cases as officials acknowledge the vaccines don’t prevent infection or transmission.
McCullough noted that in California, with the more contagious but much milder omicron variant now dominant, health care workers who tested positive for COVID-19 and had symptoms were told to go back to work.
“With that, I think that’s it. I think that’s the end. The narrative has crumbled. People don’t want these vaccines,” McCullough said.
“The vaccines should be pulled off the market. They clearly are not solving the problem.” ##
As was previously noted, there has clearly been a steady shift of the official narrative of 1 to 2 years ago toward the evidence that MHProNews previously reported.
See the related reports to learn more. By way of an additional analysis in brief: for now, several questions ought to logically be pressed by objective thinking elected and appointed officials.
- When U.S. national intelligence, and satellite intelligence, indicates there was foreknowledge in the fall of 2019 that a virus was spreading in Wuhan, China why wasn’t then President Trump advised then of the looming threat? How can that failure be candidly explained?
- Why has the methods used to ‘manage’ the pandemic demonstrated to have benefited the wealthy while harming smaller businesses and tens of millions of employed or retired Americans?
- The Modular Home Builders Association (MHBA) Executive Director Tom Hardiman said that the Biden Administration’s plan amounted to a political payoff to Democratic supporters. Why has the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) failed to explore that concern with respect to the manufactured housing industry?
Despite MHI demonstrating via numerous photo and video opportunities in the past and current administration, there has been no notable advancement on the key issues that have limited manufactured housing in the past 2 decades. Who says? Some of MHI’s own members, their own leaders, as well as the producer-focused trade group, the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR).
But what is the pragmatic upshot of this pandemic in the past 2 years? Big businesses and the wealthiest Americans (who are often owners/investors/leaders of those big businesses) profited wildly while smaller businesses often struggled and/or failed. Employees were exposed to whatever COVID19 risks existed, and where often encouraged to take steps that in hindsight have proven to be less than effective.
It was a Biden White House statement last summer on the importance of competition in capitalism that should be viewed critically in this respect. It makes several apt points. But why has it not been pointed at the very wealthy people and powerful corporate interests who backed Biden’s entry into the White House?
