SB NEWS-PRESS: THE INVESTIGATOR: LEGAL EAGLES SWOOPED ON PPP BENEFITS

  




https://newspress.com/legal-eagles-swooped-on-ppp-benefits/






As usual, it is the lawyers that make out like bandits and rake in the big bucks.             

This time for doing nothing.

Because when it came to extracting money from the U.S. Government for Paycheck Protection Program “loans” (free money) during COVID lockdowns, it is the lawyers that had the expertise and wherewithal to cash in more efficiently than most others. 


And they certainly did. 


Because while numerous small business owners without access to expert advice were provided with little or nothing to replace their losses—and in many cases lost their businesses as a result of oppressive COVID-19 lockdowns—a total of 14,363 law firms nationwide reaped over $4 billion in aid from the federal government.


$1.5 billion of this was in California alone, including 5 Santa Barbara law firms:

 

Mullen & Henzell LLP:  $1,170,882 (40 employees).


Price, Postel & Parma LLP:  $653,395.55 (26 employees).


Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld LLP: $388,451 (20 employees).


Rogers, Sheffield & Campbell LLP:  $367,400 (14 employees).


Nie, Sterling, Hale & Miller LLP:  $199,017 (0 employees). 

 

Does anyone audit these law firms to determine precisely in whose bank accounts these funds ultimately land? 


The Small Business Administration (SBA) was supposed to audit all “loans” in excess of $2 million and “spot check” those that received lesser amounts. 


But guess what? Last July the SBA announced it will no longer conduct such loan reviews due to “money and time” concerns.


Which means these law firms are free and clear from scrutiny.


We reached out to the law partners at Santa Barbara law firms listed above with one simple question: “How were these funds allocated?”


Not one of them answered.


A local attorney who did not partake in The Big Grab told The Investigator, “Such BS. Who’s going to pay for all these free loans? Our kids.” 


Another member of Santa Barbara’s legal community told The Investigator, “The legal system did not slow down here during COVID, only the judicial side of things had to be adjusted. Taking free loans may have been highly inappropriate and should be accounted for. The American Bar Association code includes ‘moral turpitude’—and this may run contrary to that principle. The California Bar Association should provide oversight and take a good look at this with a view to disbarring those unwilling to account for why, precisely, the funds were needed and who actually received them.”


 

            BEANIE BABY BLUES (CONTINUED) 


 

In her Second Amended Complaint filed with Superior Court in Santa Barbara, Kathryn Zimmie accuses her former many-decade partner Ty Warner (along with his financial advisors) of fraud, and she seeks, as part of her Prayer for Relief, “to send this matter to the appropriate authorities for a criminal investigation.”


Ms. Zimmie alleges that Mr. Warner and his team misappropriated her identity to create a fictitious entity that she apparently knew nothing about, the purpose of which was to funnel funds “to deceive Zimmie and others.”


These entity documents, Ms. Zimmie claims, contain her “inauthentic signature”—a euphemism, we gather, for forgery.


“The purposes of The Enterprise”—Cleveland Design Consultants, a Delaware registered LLC—“were to provide tax benefits to Defendant Warner” in addition to deceiving Ms. Zimmie into believing that she was being properly compensated for her design work on Ty’s behalf, the lawsuit alleges.


 

            PUTIN, POISED…


 

…to invade the Ukraine. 



The only hold-up, after diplomatic talks “non-started” (in fact, bombed), is the weather, which has been unseasonably warm, meaning a muddy battlefield for intruders. 


Although Russian tanks are lighter than those used by the U.S. Army (45-50 tons compared to 65-75 tons), tank commanders would still risk getting bogged down unless and until a deep-freeze hardens the ground.  


This will all change early this week, with sub-freezing temperatures forecast and 127,000 Russian troops, according to Ukrainian intelligence, now amassed at the border.


Consequently, the U.S. Intelligence community now anticipates an invasion at any moment—and British defense chiefs believe it will be full-blown with a Putin objective of taking the whole country, not just a slice (the Donbas region) as they did, in 2014, with Crimea.


To that end, Russia is believed to be contriving a fake news social media campaign along with a “false flag” attack on its own proxy troops (within Ukraine) for fabricating the “provocation” they desire to “justify” invasion, in addition to recently situating two short-range ballistic missile delivery systems at the border and directing armored divisions to Belarus (within striking distance of the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv) while ordering families of diplomats stationed in Ukraine home to Russia. 


This conflict isn’t about reunification, former UK MI6 official Ian McCredie told The Investigator, but about Putin trying to save “his own skin and personal fortune,” now estimated at $200 billion, due to internal Russian “failures that have led to into economic and national decline. 


"Russia’s GDP is about $1.7 trillion,” adds Mr. McCredie, “lower than Italy’s and minuscule compared to the US at over $20 trillion. There is not one single Russian company that has any sort of global presence to rival the likes of Coca-Cola, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Volkswagen, Samsung or Rolls Royce. Putin is an opportunist, a kleptomaniac, a thug and a mafia boss… preferring killing, poisoning and imprisoning anyone who dares to stand against him. Vladimir Putin is motivated only by survival.”


Which is why Putin adversary Alexei Navalny, currently jailed (as a political prisoner) by the Putin regime (after they tried to assassinate him), urged Joe Biden, in a letter to TIME magazine, to go after Putin’s personal wealth. “It’s really simple. You want to influence Putin, then influence his personal wealth. It’s right under your backside.”


Instead, Biden, at his self-delusional press conference 4 days ago in which he claimed to have “out-performed” every U.S. president, recklessly provided Putin a green-light for a minor incursion, infuriating the Ukrainians and necessitating an egg-faced correction from White House functionaries.


Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy summed it up this way: "Long before this... and his humiliating Afghan surrender, and his (refusal to impede) Putin's Nordstream gas pipeline, the Russian dictator knew what Americans are still learning to their horror: This President is no match for ruthless tyrants... and not just the Ukraine, but the world, is likely soon to suffer greatly as a result." 


 

            POOR PRINCESS CHARLENE OF MONACO…


            

…remains captive in a Swiss asylum, committed to The Kusnacht Practice in Zurich two months ago by her husband, Prince Albert, to deal with “physical and psychological issues” stemming from Albert’s infidelities and illegitimate children (and an ongoing lawsuit in Italy pertaining to the latest such claim, over which the prince has chosen to hide behind “Sovereign Immunity” instead of manning up, taking a paternity test and contesting the merits of the case). 


Charlene is still “months away” from recovery, Monaco’s Palace announced recently. (Donald Trump’s mantra “lock her up” appears to have made an impression on Albert...)


It should come as no surprise that Albert’s only friend and contact-point within the British Royal Family is the now-disgraced Prince Andrew, whose interests, pursuits and prevarications are similar to Albert’s own. Or, as “Randy Andy” himself whined in August 2019, “Albert gets to do whatever he wants but I get in trouble…”.


A reader wrote asking our opinion on “the level of intelligence that has been used by the folks on Prince Andrew’s team.”


Having operated intimately for five-and-a-half years within a royal court (Albert’s), I could answer without hesitation: The more lies he gets away with, the easier it becomes for him to lie about everything, large and small. Who among the sycophants that enrich themselves around Andrew and Albert have the courage to catch either prince in a lie and confront him with it? Not a one, not even lawyers. And without truth, intelligence is out the window.


 

            AND SPEAKING OF ROYALTY STRIPPED OF THEIR TITLES…


 

It has been reported in recent days that a) Prince Harry and Meghan desire to sell their $14.7 million Montecito estate (now priced at $27 million) and b) Harry misses his old lifestyle back in Blighty.


We gather that the bureaucrats at Buck House have not yet explained to the petulant pair that exile is a one-way street, as it was a century ago with the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. 


Though, who knows, maybe the Palace will relent—and permit Harry to come home and share new digs (perhaps a large doghouse) with his Uncle Andrew.


But not for the moment, it seems. Because Harry is reportedly boycotting Britain due to the UK government’s stance over not providing him—ever since he bailed in 2020—with Royalty and Special Protection officers when visiting his homeland (even though he has offered to pay the cost himself). 


“Harry cannot pick and choose,” says former royal protection chief, Dai Davies. “It was his prerogative to go to America.”


Buteven after disavowing royal obligations, Harry apparently believes he has a legal right to insist on royal trappings—and to that end has initiated legal action against the UK government to change their bodyguard policy in his favor, bringing new embarrassment to his grandmother, the long-suffering Queen, said to be “despair” over Andrew’s legal predicament and Harry’s ongoing recalcitrance.


This, of course, has caused a media uproar inside the UK, with Harry’s fiercest critic, Piers Morgan, labeling him a “shameless, deluded, woefully entitled hypocrite.”


 

            THE RAFTER OF TURKEYS…


 

…at the White Wattle aren’t the only crooks with family members enjoying leadership positions inside The Swamp. 


Enter Paul Pelosi Jr. onto the Rolls of Dishonor for his widespread business connections to “a slew of fraudsters and convicted criminals,” according to an in-depth (UK) Daily Mail investigation into Mr. Pelosi’s get-rich-off-his-family-name shenanigans. It details at least five companies with which Mr. Pelosi is associated that were or are currently under investigation by federal or state agencies. One of them, Info USA, is a data merchant that packaged a contact list specifically tailored to target “the gullible elderly” and marketed to scam artists who duly parted such folks from their money. 


Another entity, Natural Blue Resources, Inc., co-founded by Paul Jr, was run by James. E. Cohen and Joseph Corazzi, two convicted fraudsters.


The Mail’s findings are substantial—and include the huge financial fortune ($100 million) amassed by the Pelosi family while House Speaker Nancy sits on committees to regulate the corporate world, from which she made millions from high-tech stocks during COVID.  


On another side of The Swamp, there is news of an upcoming memoir by Hunter Biden’s ex-wife, due to appear in June at a bookstore near you.


If We Break: A Memoir of Marriage, Addiction, and Healing by Katherine Buhle is being touted by Crown Publishing Group as “a page-turning and heartbreaking account” of her ex-husband’s booze, drug and prostitute addictions. “I was the sicko,” Hunter wrote in a text to his deceased brother’s widow, discovered by Katherine on an iPad, “sleeping with my brother’s wife.” 

 

            

          EMBATTLED BORIS


 

As foretold to us by Britain’s longest-serving Lobby Correspondent and our old friend Nigel Nelson (and reported in our November column from London), British PM Boris Johnson is fending off a vicious mutiny and possible replacement by his own Tory ministers and “Red Wall” MPs.


An authoritative source in London updated us with this: “You and Nigel were spot on. The current chaos has obviously been long-planned, and Jeremy Hunt” (a British MP and Chair of the Select Committee on Health & Social Care) “is slowly, amidst sharp elbows, beginning to surface” (as a successor to Boris), which Mr. Nelson also predicted.



And now, exclusively, from Mr. Nelson himself: “Boris is still on his way out. But the attempts to oust him went a bit wobbly Wednesday when Tory MP Christian Wakeford defected to Labour. Treachery has a way of uniting the betrayed and several letters of no confidence in the PM were withdrawn as a result. The so-called pork pie plot by over-excitable newbie Tory MPs also backfired, as there's no point getting the required 54 letters if you still do not have the numbers to oust the PM out in a confidence vote. Most Tory MPs who want rid of Boris are now holding their fire until the Sue Gray report (on whether misled Parliament about parties at Number 10 Downing Street when everyone was supposed to be under lockdown) is released. If that is devastating then they will move against him. If not, they will hold-off on the basis that Boris gaffes are like buses - there will always be another along in a minute.”


 

            COVID CHICANERY (UPDATE)


 

What killed Bob Saget at age 65?


Orange County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office: “No signs of foul play or drug use in this case. His death is a mystery.”


Bob Saget’s 13 December clip on YouTube: “I got my booster shot… and I was hurting.”


And what happens next? 




After determining Mr. Saget died of a heart attack (he was discovered with his left arm over his chest) or stroke—classic consequences of myocarditis, a CDC-declared potential side effect of the vaccine—official-dumb speculates that poor Bob…fell victim to Covid! (Which in a sense is true, if with an Orwellian newspeak spin…)


The question that begs to be asked is this: What kind of country are we living in? 

            

 

            SURVEYS FROM HELL


 

Poll question in Calgary, Canada: “Should Alberta implement a tax on adults who are unvaccinated from COVID-19?”


And speaking of surveys: We confirmed (as reported in our COVID column two Sundays ago) that Rasmussen, indeed, ran a survey with a slew of incendiary questions, including…


Would you favor having state or federal governments confine citizens to their homes at all times, except for emergencies, if they refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine? (A third of respondents—mostly Democrats, “strongly” or “somewhat” favored this.)


Other questions dealt with confining the non-vaccinated to “designated facilities” and to imposing financial penalties or imprisoning people who merely question the vaccine’s veracity! (In other words, if ever implemented, this columnist could be jailed.)       


And this one: Should we remove parents’ custody of their children if parents refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine?


Dare we say, this survey stuff is sicker than COVID itself.

 

 

            STATE OF THE DIS-UNION


 

It is speculated that Joe Biden, in his State of the Union address (delayed until March 1st), will do with COVID as he did with Afghanistan: Declare it over and move on as if victorious. This would be political, of course (it always is with Brandon, who blows with the wind), but the pandemic has indeed mutated into something with which humanity can coexist without oppressive lockdowns (which were not necessary) and social distancing—and the fools among us need to hear that from an authoritative proponent of the illogical mainstream narrative (assuming “authoritative” even applies to the cognitively-confused Biden).


Because the truth about the Omicron variant is seeping out, even among those charged with keeping the false narrative alive: Almost all hospitalizations and deaths supposedly caused by Omicron were in reality for other health reasons and pinned on COVID as part of the so-called “pandemic of the unvaccinated” scare story that itself does not hold water because the vaccinated and boostered suffered most from Omicron.


An e-mail from Hesu: “Your reporting is a breath of unmasked fresh air.”


An e-mail from Erin: “Thank you!! Thank you!! I got the vaccine and almost died within hours of it... insane heart palpitations, couldn’t breathe, shingles, severe gut pain, weird bleeding, migraines, blue feet and hands, 105 fever unreal trauma to my body. When I got the vaccine, I felt acid running from my left arm where I was shot to my chest over and over. It was like fire was burning in my arm to my chest for three days. This is why I am 100 percent sure this is from the vaccine. I am a very healthy 41-year-old who played division 1 basketball in college and I am still struggling from this vaccine. I got my shot in May. I am healing very slowly... and the worst part is I had Covid before this and lost my sense of smell for a day. I was forced to get this vaccine by my employer. This article from a regular media outlet is a huge step in healing for me… thank you soooo much!!!” 


This leaves us in no doubt our column has found the right home—kudos to this newspaper’s publishers and editor for possessing the cojones to stand up to the powers that (shouldn’t) be.


The ranks of those unafraid to speak and write the truth are growing as the falsehoods and propaganda implode on those who demand total submission to their blathering nonsense, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, a civil servant who—according to his own financial disclosure forms—has amassed a fortune of over $10 million, including investments in China.


 

            NATIONAL SANCTITY OF LIFE DAY…



 

…was yesterday. 


It is a little known spiritual day if one with momentous meaning.


In March 2012, my 18-year-old daughter found herself 4-months pregnant.


Her obstetrician scribbled the name and number of a late-term abortion clinic onto a notepad and handed the notation to my daughter with encouragement to go there.


We did not go there.


Five months later my daughter gave birth to a beautiful boy.


I cannot imagine how life would be without “The Dude” because I love him so much.


I cannot imagine how I would feel today if I’d paid, to scratch from my daughter, from this world, my own flesh and blood.


This happy boy.


This affectionate soul adored by dogs.


My very precious grandson.






Please think twice, maybe three times, before scratching out a real living, breathing human soul.

SB NEWS-PRESS: THE INVESTIGATOR: TARZAN V. THE DEPUTY OF DEATH

 




https://newspress.com/trial-date-approaches-for-suit-over-cameron-elys-death/




On the evening of Oct. 15, 2019, Santa Barbara County sheriff’s deputies answered a call and rolled up to “Tarzan” star Ron Ely’s home on Mariposa Drive in Hope Ranch after being summoned and dispatched to keep the peace.

According to Mr. Ely’s lawsuit filed in July 2020 against Santa Barbara County and four sheriff’s deputies — Desiree Thome, Jeremy Rogers, Phillip Farley and John Gruttaduario — the deputies “deliberately, purposely, and without warning opened fire on Cameron Ely … then actively denied him any medical assistance for at least 13 minutes.”

Cameron, 30, who was fatally shot by the deputies, was Ron’s son, and prior to shooting Cameron, deputies found Valerie Ely, 62, Ron’s wife, stabbed to death. Cameron, it later transpired, had himself been stabbed — and deputies presumably believed the blood from his wounds belonged to Valerie. Deputies also claimed that Cameron announced that he had a gun and that he lunged forward. 

Deputies, who later discovered Cameron was unarmed, believed he was the prime suspect in Valerie’s death

The complaint continues: “Without cause or legal justification, Deputies for the Santa Barbara (County) Sheriff’s Department killed Mr. Ely in contravention of his Fourth Amendment Right to be free from illegal searches and seizures, including having his life forcibly taken from him.”

The plaintiffs, Ron Ely and his two daughters, “seek compensatory and punitive damages from Defendants … in connection with the unjustified use of deadly force and denial of medical care. And for ignoring a pattern and practice of civil rights violations that happened as a result of poorly trained deputies.” 


DEPUTY JEREMY ROGERS


One of the more troubling aspects of this case is the involvement of Deputy Jeremy Rogers, one of the defendants.

During his 16-year career with the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Rogers has been involved in two other fatal shootings.

The first killing was in 2008. Confused circumstances. No police audio-video recorders. A settlement of $650,000 (your money).

The second killing, in 2012. Deputy Rogers tracked down a burglar. Confused circumstances. A video-recorder contradicted the deputy’s story about the suspect aiming his car at him. Eight slugs through the windshield. No medical assistance. A very dead suspect.

Deputy Rogers, during the course of his law enforcement duties, also allegedly caused a fatal car crash. This happened in 2009 when he allegedly took it upon himself to respond to a situation on Highway 101 over which the California Highway Patrol has jurisdiction.

The problem: A wrong-way driver.

Deputy Rogers’ solution: He allegedly ramped slowly onto the 101 without switching on his cruiser’s flashing lights or siren.

Trying to accommodate Deputy Rogers’ cruiser, which was allegedly going too slow, a driver, who had three passengers in his own vehicle, swerved — and drove head-on into the wrong-way driver coming the other way. Two of the passengers died. Two others suffered spinal and head injuries, and one remains confined to a wheelchair.

The ensuing lawsuit for “breach of protocol” and “reckless behavior” was settled for $4.8 million (your money).

 

WHO KILLED VALERIE ELY?


The Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office has allegedly made no effort to track down other unnamed individuals who were believed to be in the house that evening, in favor of promoting its view that Cameron Ely stabbed his mother (which, to their mind, apparently renders their killing of Cameron at least somewhat justifiable).

“They are taking that stance to cover their butts,” DeWitt Lacy, attorney for Ron Ely and his daughters, Kirsten and Kaitland, told The Investigator. “There is a ton of evidence that Cameron did not do it. We believe there are others involved, others in the house that evening. The D,A,’s office should have tested all of the DNA collected at the scene. 

“As it is, their collection was limited and flawed,” Mr. Lacy said. “They don’t want to investigate because it was easier to blame it on Cameron.”

Ron Ely himself may know the answer, but after suffering a stroke several months prior to the incident, he is uncommunicative (he cannot speak), and he suffers from cognitive issues.

“More than anything,” said Mr. Lacy, “the family wants the D.A. to stop telling everyone that Cameron killed his mother.” 


UPCOMING TRIAL


A mediation in the Ely case last month failed to produce a settlement, and, consequently, a trial is scheduled to begin on Feb. 22 in the federal District Court in Los Angeles.

“We intend to get justice,” Mr. Lacy told The Investigator. “We are not looking for a settlement. We are full speed ahead to trial.”

The lawsuit does not specify the amount in compensatory and punitive damages sought.

“We want a jury to see and hear the evidence and let them decide the proper amount,” said Mr. Lacy.

Public funds (your money) pay the cost of defending Santa Barbara County and the actions of sheriff’s deputies — and it will also be your money that covers whatever settlement is reached or judgment awarded down the road.

 

THE OFFICIAL STANCE


The Investigator emailed Raquel Zick, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office public information officer, and cc’d Sheriff Bill Brown, requesting their side of the story.  

The sheriff’s office replied: “We cannot comment on pending litigation” and referred us to Sheriff Brown’s statement from October 2020, which merely pre-echoed the same: “We will respond to these allegations later, and at the appropriate place, District Court.”

In addition, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office sent us a link, ostensibly to the District Attorney’s’ “findings.”

In actuality, the link was just a news release the D.A.’s Office issued one day following the incident: “During the search, deputies located the suspect on the property of the homicide. Deputies attempted to gain verbal control of the suspect; however, he presented a threat to them. In defense of the threat posed by the suspect, several deputies fired their service weapons at the suspect, fatally wounding him.”  

In other words, a “finding” devoid of investigation.

We also reached out — three times —  to Mary Pat Barry, the counsel who represents Santa Barbara County. Ms. Barry provided no response.

Meaning derived from the above: Only if this case goes to trial can we hope for any kind of public accountability.

And since Santa Barbara County will doubtless seek to quietly settle the matter (with your money) on the eve of trial to ensure that the killing of Mr. Cameron is never spoken of again, zippo may be all we’ll ever know.

Unless, that is, Ron Ely and his daughters resist settlement and go to trial.

Only then might they find the justice they seek.

And only then will we, as a community, be better served by what a jury, through their verdict, determines the truth to be.

Heart attack and stroke are classic potential results of myocarditis, a CDC-declared possible side effect of the vaccine.

But they're trying to pin it on Covid instead.

In what kind of country are we living?

MONTECITO STRONG (4 YEARS)

 





SB NEWS-PRESS: THE INVESTIGATOR: COVID CHICANERY (PART II)




https://newspress.com/covid-chicanery-part-2-more-on-the-serious-side-effects-of-the-vaccines/





Carlos Tejada, the 49-year-old Deputy Asia Editor at The New York Times—guardian of the mainstream narrative on COVID-19 and much else—suffered a heart attack and died a day after boostering up with a Moderna vaccination. This follows a series of athletes (including four soccer players) around the globe falling dead from heart attacks soon after a booster. Sadly, Mr. Tejada leaves behind a wife and two children.


As we pointed out in November, myocarditis—inflammation of the heart muscle leading to chest pain, abnormal heartbeat and shortness of breath—is officially recognized by the CDC as a vaccine side effect.

  

The US National Center for Biotechnology Information (a branch of the National Institutes for Health) defines myocarditis as “an inflammatory process of the heart muscle. It weakens your heart so your body doesn’t get enough blood. Clots can form in your heart, leading to a stroke or heart attack.”


But only in Japan (just recently) have labels been placed on vaccine serums warning about myocarditis.


This follows Japanese deployment of ivermectin to treat COVID. Their results are astonishing; a zero-death rate.

 

Yet the USA continues to drag its feet on ivermectin and other therapeutics due to its vaccine propaganda push. (The USA doesn’t just restrict and hinder, it also seeks to identify and punish doctors who prescribe ivermectin. Go figure.)


And speaking of The New York Times: They reported that Vladimir Putin has no plans to introduce vaccine mandates to his country.

 

Uh—does this mean Russia is now freer than the USA?

 

It certainly makes you wonder, especially when the ex-chief scientist for Pfizer, Dr. Michael Yeadon, says: “This system [the Covid vaccine] is being put in place using lies, and it is being put in place using lies for some purpose, and I believe that purpose is complete totalitarian control.” (More on this later in the column.)


The New York Times also reported “Covid rarely leads to problems in younger children, according to two CDC reports.”


Bollocks, says Steve Kirsch, who writes extensively on COVID and believes the Times purposely misinterpreted these CDC studies. Because what they actually show is this: “Myocarditis rates in boys [who take the vaccine] are at least six times normal.”


And the unborn may be the most at risk, according to Canadian figures on stillbirths among fully vaccinated women. Scary enough. But it gets worse. After Dr. Mel Bruchet of Vancouver B.C. called attention to the inordinate number of stillbirths by filing a complaint against Canadian government officials, a situation was contrived to commit him to a psych ward and force-fed anti-psychotic meds—a technique used by the former Soviet Union to discredit dissidents.


Add to that a study just published by The Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology confirming that the COVID vaccine alters menstrual cycles.


             VAERS


A new game devised by those monitoring COVID vaccine manufacturers is called How Bad is My Batch?


Because 1 in every 200 batches of vaccine serum is tainted with harmful ingredients, according to the CDC’s own Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

 

“Some batches,” says Craig Paardecooper of Kingston University London, “are 50 times worse than others.”


New independent studies continue to confirm that 150,000 Americans have already died from vaccine side effects.

 

“Pfizer vaccine will cause more deaths than COVID itself,” predicts Dr. Peter McCullough.

 

Thus far, VAERS conservatively reports 21,002 deaths nationwide from the vaccine. (Compare that to 9,248 from ALL OTHER vaccines over the last 31 years and even this false figure is still mind boggling.)


Furthermore, VAERS, by 24 December 2021, received over one million “reports” on the vaccine, broken down as follows:

Deaths: 21,002 (as above).

Hospitalizations: 110,609.

Urgent Care: 109,245.

Doctor Office Visits: 156,456.

Anasphylaxis (life threatening allergic reaction): 8,673.

 Bell’s Palsy: 12,532.

Thus, when any healthy 50-something dies suddenly from a heart attack, like fitness- fanatic Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallee, who dropped dead over Christmas, you have to ask yourself: When did HE get jabbed?


Steve Kirsch, again, on how to tell if someone famous died from the vaccine:


·      Person was recently vaccinated.

·      Company person worked for enforces vaccinations with threat of job loss.

·      Person is young with no health conditions.

·      The cause of death is not revealed or unknown.

·      The mainstream media narrative uses words like “unexpected” or “sudden” or “abrupt.”


When did Peter Bogdanovich, who died 3 days ago (he was 82), get jabbed?


Little wonder that vaccine-maker Pfizer wants to withhold (meaning, hide) their documents from the American public for 75 years.


And the courts are siding with them!


Writes Aaron Siri, a lawyer working on the case to compel public access to Pfizer studies: “The federal government gives Pfizer billions in taxpayer money + makes Americans take its product + won’t let Americans sue for harm + shields disclosure of its licensure documents = 1984.”


Good news: District Court Judge Mark Pittman, a federal judge in Texas, just ruled that 75 years doesn’t cut it; he wants the FDA to release 400,000 pages of data in 8 months at the rate of 55,000 pages per month. 


New studies show that you’re more likely to catch the Omicron variant if you are vaccinated with a booster than if you’re not; that 95% of those who have fallen ill with Omicron are vaccinated. (Question: Was the vaccine’s true purpose to ensure that everyone catch Omicron for the antibodies that might result from herd immunity? You have to ask, because you sure can’t trust government or Big Pharma anymore.)

       

Dr. Joseph Mercola offers some reasoning behind this: "The COVID jab reprograms your innate and adaptive immune systems, causing immune depletion."


Moreover, it has been estimated that a full third of hospitalized persons with Omicron were admitted for other reasons, such as broken legs or appendicitis. Hence, don't be frightened or intimidated by (purposely) misleading statistics.


Meanwhile, the Conejo Guardian has reported additional nurses from Ventura hospitals speaking out.

 

Here’s Sam, an ICU nurse at Ventura County Hospital: “I’m tired of all the B.S. that’s going on. It’s crazy how nobody questions things anymore.” When a 38-year-old female arrived with a blood flow problem to her brain, “they were searching for everything under the sun and documenting this in the chart, but nowhere do you see if she was vaccinated or not. One thing the vaccine causes is thrombosis, clotting. Here you have a 38-year-old who was double-vaccinated and she’s having strokes they can’t explain. None of the doctors relate it to the vaccine. It’s garbage. It’s absolute garbage.”


Let’s shift from the ICU to insurance companies, whose actuaries base life insurance premiums on death statistics.

 

Scott Davison, CEO of a century-old Indianapolis insurance company says, “We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business.”  Deaths are up 40% among people aged 18-64, he says, “and most of the claims of death are NOT classified as COVID-19 deaths.”


Yet the World Health Organization in November posted on their Facebook page: “Most people have mild or no side effects following COVID-19 vaccination.”


It attracted a whopping 45,000 negative comments that begged to differ, including these:


Gerald Rogers: “This is what propaganda looks like.”


Nicole De Graff: “Long term heart damage, paralysis, blood clots and death are not mild?”

            

             RASMUSSEN REPORTS OVERSTEPPING? 

 

A reader wrote The Investigator after receiving a call from survey company Rasmussen (Caller ID: 732.776.9777, Rasmussen LLC headquarters in Asbury Park, New Jersey) and taking part in a survey she found quite disturbing.


What did the respondent think of forcing the unvaccinated to wear tracking devices?


What did the respondent think of quarantining the unvaccinated to special facilities?


What did the respondent think of removing children of the unvaccinated?


“Just being asked these questions was chilling,” wrote our shocked reader. “They didn’t materialize out of thin air.”


The Investigator phoned Rasmussen headquarters to confirm that they are conducting such a survey with these questions. No response.

 

            ILLNESS ANXIETY DISORDER

 

As COVID continues to mutate and weaken (as viruses naturally do) and spread with cold-to-flu-like symptoms, little more, a new pandemic has taken the country by storm. It is called Illness Anxiety Disorder (IAD).

 

No joke.


IAD really exists.


The Mayo Clinic defines this mental malady as “worrying excessively that you are or may become seriously ill. You may experience extreme anxiety that body sensations, such as muscle twitching or fatigue, are associated with a specific, serious illness. This excessive anxiety—rather than the physical symptoms itself—results in severe distress that can disrupt your life.”


Big Pharma will thrive—yet again—in a new tidal wave of prescriptions for Xanax and/or SSRI anti-depressants during the weeks and months ahead.  (As if our populace doesn’t already quaff enough of these: 39.3 million Americans are on tranquilizers; 37 million on SSRIs.)


Even worse, we (read: schools) have been instilling our children with fear—and, according to some reports, lowering their IQs (certainly, their social skills) through schooling at home through Zoom.

  

Our saddest IAD sufferer is the wretched soul you see behind the wheel of a car, no other passengers, windows wound up tight… wearing a mask.

 

Shrink time!


Our own theory is that COVID is attracted to fear, which translates to this: those who suffer from IAD are more likely to cultivate COVID than those who don’t, on the basis—as believed in some quarters—that fear depletes the immune system.

 

Or, as Florence Scovel Shinn put it almost 100 years ago in her book The Game of Life and How to Play It: “One can only contract germs while vibrating at the same rate as the germs, and fear drags men down to the level of the germ.”


So there.


Even more interesting than IAD—certainly, more ominous—is a societal psychological condition called “mass formation,” otherwise known as mass hypnosis, which is when a population willingly sacrifices their freedom.

 

First step is isolation of the masses and a lack of social bonding (think lockdowns).

 

Second step is a feeling of meaningless of life. That job you were doing that seemed so important you had to turn up for work every day? And now seems purposeless? (Again, think lockdowns.)


Third step is, well, IAD, as above.


Fourth step is frustration and aggression deriving from Steps 1-3… (Look around you…)


All four steps together equal an invitation to join Mass Formation Hypnosis—and totalitarianism—based on buying into, accepting and then participating in an illogical narrative, “even if it’s utterly absurd,” says Mattias Desmet, a clinical society professor at Ghent University. “The reason they buy into the narrative is because it leads to this new social bond.             


“Through the process of mass formation,” continues Prof. Desmet, “they switch from the very painful condition of social isolation to the opposite state of maximal connectedness that exists in a crowd. That leads up to a mental intoxication, which is the real reason people stick to the narrative, why people are willing to go along with the narrative, even though it is utterly wrong and even if they lose everything that is important to them, personally.”


Or, put another way, by 19th century French psychologist and crowd specialist Gustave Le Bron: “The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from the evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim.” (Think Hitler and what became Nazi Germany in the 1930s.)


That would, of course, lead to the division that now exists between the believers of the narrative and the non-believers, the fearful versus the fearless.


The question isn’t whether or not this is truly going on. Because unless you are blind and deaf (or stupid), there should be no doubt.


The real question is this: Was it willfully premeditated—or has mass formation hypnosis formed through happenstance?


Whichever the case, society’s addiction to the current illogical mainstream narrative does not bode well for the future of our democracy.
