Lead: FDA Approves New Covid Vaccines

credit: fda

Stop me if you've heard this before!

The FDA has given emergency approval for new Covid vaccines for people 6 months old and older with NO clinical trials to show for it. Don't worry though, they say that studies “suggest" it is effective. 

Are 6-month-olds having a Covid emergency? The data does not suggest that. Even though Covid case numbers are high, death numbers are at an all time low. 

This is a new Covid vaccine, not a booster. Does it prevent transmission? The FDA doesn’t say that. Is it safe? The FDA doesn’t say that either. In fact, Pfizer and Moderna both acknowledge in the new vaccine Fact Sheets that the Covid vaccine has serious adverse events and that "the possible side effects are still being studied.”

Were there clinical trials conducted? If there were, we aren’t being told about it. The Fact Sheets say that the approval is based on the original vaccines and not this one that they’re about to shoot you with.

How long do these new vaccines provide protection against Covid? They don’t know. They both say that "the duration of protection against COVID-19 is currently unknown." 

Well, does it at least prevent more severe Covid? They don't know that either. They based their approval on studies of the previous two Covid vaccines, not this one. 

When you consider these omissions plus the fact that the CDC recently acknowledged that the Covid vaccine is a risk factor for becoming infected with Covid, why would a person take this? 

Russia Working on New Weapons

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia is developing weapons with “new physical principles” to “ensure the security of any country in the near historic perspective.” 

What could that mean? Russian news agency TASS says that “such weapons include laser, ultrasonic, radio-frequency arms and others.” 

The term “new physical principles” can encompass many things such as directed energy, electromagnetic weapons such as lasers, geophysical weapons, genetic weapons, non-lethal weapons and more. You can use your imagination here and bet that world powers are working on it. 

Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday that the U.S. may be okay with Ukraine targeting Russia with U.S. weapons. President Biden promised that they wouldn't do that but apparently that is now on the table.  

New Data Shows Inflation Just Went Up, NOT Down

ghostbed

New data out this month shows inflation is going up, not down. Despite what the Biden administration just said. Time to move out of greenbacks! 

Bank of America expects gold to hit $3,000 an ounce, and America's largest precious metals company Lear Capital is giving away one ounce of silver for every ounce of gold you buy! They're also giving you $250 in your account. That's free money.

So as the U.S. dollar continues to face massive inflationary pressure, investors have been pouring back into precious metals. If you have your retirement in a dollar format, then it will continue to lose value every day that it's there in a bank. It's time to move some of your retirement into gold and silver and away from government currencies.  

Gold and Silver have sustained for over 4,000 years while every government currency in world history has collapsed. Every one of them. Will this time be any different? Of course not.

VP Kamala Harris Goes Front and Center

President Joe Biden is the first U.S. President to be away from New York City on 9/11 for annual memorials to the September 11 attacks. In his stead was Vice President Kamala Harris, further indicating that Democrats may be warming the public to her as the 2024 nominee. 

But not everyone is in love with the Vice President. New York City Mayor Eric Adams appeared to grimace as he stood next to her for a Ground Zero ceremony. 

Could this be because New York City is buckling under a migrant crises that Democrats want to ignore? Mayor Adams, also a Democrat, has been begging the White House to do something for city mayors about the migrant crisis but they refuse. 

The Mayor said that he would like to speak with Vice President Harris about this in detail but the 9/11 Memorial was not the right opportunity. 

He may not want to take this issue up with President Biden. He is increasingly out of it. On Monday he said that he visited the Twin Towers the day after 9/11 when in fact he did not. Could we call that a lie when he clearly just doesn't know what he's talking about most days?

Warnings on the U.S. Economy

Don’t get too comfortable with the economy. This warning came from JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon at a financial conference on Monday. 

“To say the consumer is strong today, meaning you are going to have a booming environment for years, is a huge mistake,” he said. 

Consumer spending is up and inflation has cooled from where it was last year but those things should not be considered in a vacuum. The U.S. is still set to hit its debt ceiling at the end of September. Congress returns today to begin negotiations. Republicans say that they will not increase the borrowing limit without spending cuts and Democrats say no way to spending cuts. 

The White House said that the President is prepared to veto a proposed Pentagon spending measure.
