  • In my 1911 I trust

    Since most of the elderly have been vaccinated, my only question is, was this individual vaccinated? If the idea of a vaccine passport is being floated then it shouldn’t be any problem letting us know the vaccination status of these recently deceased individuals.

  • In my 1911 I trust

    Hmm seemed like a relevant question…..

    • It seems completely relevant to me. However, it also seems like THE last question they would ever answer, if the answer were “Yes.” Which shows how attached they are to their narrative, whether or not there are holes in it. Whom do we ask to provide such information? And what do we do when they say, “That information is confidential.” (As if we would be able to track the identity of the person by knowing they’d gotten the vax, like thousands of others.) Of course, even if they did say that no, the person was unvaccinated, then we’d have to trust that what they told us was true.

    • In my 1911 I trust

      This was in response to my comment not showing up till today

  • Drug pushers suck, take responsibility for tweakers and overdoses.

  • Get vaccinated, goofs.

    • Does a vaccinated person test positive for covid ?

      • According to the CDC, no. A vaccinated person may test positive for the antibodies showing that they’ve had the illness or the vaccine; but they will not show up as positive for currently harboring the virus: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/facts.html
        Although, Ranger, obviously if the person subsequently caught Covid despite the vaccination, they could test positive for it. It’s just that the vaccine itself does not cause a positive result.

        • According to the cdc, there are over 9,000 reported cases of persons contracting the big, bad after being jabbed,as of 4/26.

          So-called “breakthrough cases”.

          Emphasis on “reported”.

          But…..that has recently changed:

          “As previously announced, CDC is transitioning to reporting only patients with COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough infection that were hospitalized or died to help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance. That change in reporting will begin on May 14, 2021. In preparation for that transition, the number of reported breakthrough cases will not be updated on May 7, 2021.”

          Seems those numbers were getting a little high?

          And supposedly that is with a Ct of 28 (rtPCR), which actually might be somewhat accurate, maybe.


          • So, out of the 45% of the population who has received at least one dose of vaccine, and 32% that are fully vaccinated, from when vaccinations started until 4/26, their total number of infections for that whole period represents less than one quarter of one day’s worth of the daily cases. Seems like the vaccines are working exceptionally well.

            • What?

              Missing the point completely Bushy.

              Doesn’t fit into your imagined rainbow-jabbed world?

              (point is related to more cover-up ops)

  • Yes line up for yr experimental gene therapy with unknown long term effects to protect against a CGI virus with a 99.7 survival rate and forever wear yr Holy Vestment of the Sickness Submission Cult culture bacteria colonies on yr Face and rebreathe yr waste in So sayeth Lord Fauci So sayeth the Flock

  • What is the effectiveness of this vaccine broke down by age group? Doesn’t appear to protect the old.

    • Leaping to a conclusion that all older people have been vaccinated to this person had been vaccinated to this person had been vaccinated and died anyway is a whole lot of leaping. But indeed vaccines do have a lower protective response in older people for the same reason reason covid is so much more deadly among them; their immune systems tend to be less able to respond to new challenges.

      “The COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer Inc and German partner BioNTech SE induces weaker immune responses in elderly people compared to younger and middle-aged adults, new data suggest.
      … “But that doesn’t mean that the elderly should expect severe complications if they get infected,” said coauthor Ortwin Adams of University Hospital Dusseldorf in Germany. “Recent reports from Israel, England and Scotland show that rates of hospitalization and severe disease progression are significantly lower than in the unvaccinated, even in people over 80 and even after the first COVID-19 vaccination,”

      Then there is the long time people have spent on ventilators or in hospitals trying to recover from covid-19. Sometimes deaths occur months after infection. It would help if public health gave more details but they don’t. So the vaccination status of this most recent death nor the length of time before death is unknown.


  • All this obsession with numbers and yet we never see the only two that matter: infection rate (which is still below 4.5%) and mortality rate (which is still at .03%).

    At what point are we going to recognize the fact that this is a tempest in a teapot, and go about our business?

    • Free estimates

      Some of us have already realized that fact, Steve. It’s how to convince the hand-wringers that seems to be the issue. Panicked people make poor decisions and that’s exactly what those who are profiting right now are counting on.

      Think for yourself. Question authority. ✌️

    • So everyone should just let themselves get sick and end this inconvenient nonsense?

      • Let themselves get get sick?

        Isn’t it the premise that everyone IS sick already?

        So scary !

        Asymptomatic Covid timebombs everywhere you go. Right?

        See how dumb that sounds ?

        We can’t have it both ways.

        Either we ALL have it, which warrants the masking, distancing, and heroic risky vaccine trials (but also sends the death rate plummeting as the numbers tell a different story.)

        Or no one is carrying asymptomatically.

        And everyone needs to STFU.

        About all of it.
        The masks, the bogus 6ft drama, and certainly the nebulous and potentially dangerous experimental stab.

        They are all weak and proven to be futile attempts at controlling the uncontrollable.

        It ain’t the germ. It’s the terrain.

        • “Either we ALL have it, which warrants the masking, distancing, and heroic risky vaccine trials (but also sends the death rate plummeting as the numbers tell a different story.)

          Or no one is carrying asymptomatically”

          Wow, common sense! Is that still allowed though? Let me ask Snopes what I should think about this comment.

    • .03% / 4.5% = .7%. That’s the important number. And, that number is much lower than it could be, since lockdowns bought us time to develop treatments that cut that number to about a third of what it would be without them, and prevented overloading of hospitals, which would have vastly raised that number.

      So, the answer is never, since all evidence continues to point to having prevented the originally-predicted millions of american deaths.

  • ‘We’ll Know Our Disinformation Program Is Complete When Everything the American Public Believes Is False’. ~William Casey, CIA Director under Reagan

    • Sounds like someone Trump was reading.

      • The Real Brian

        It’s a false quote.

        It was not ever recorded and the only person to ever claim having heard it is A HUGE QUACK.

        In other words, nope.

        • A false quote? Says your “fact-checkers”? You are so trusting…..🐏

          “I am the source for this quote, which was indeed said by CIA Director William Casey at an early February 1981 meeting of the newly elected President Reagan with his new cabinet secretaries to report to him on what they had learned about their agencies in the first couple of weeks of the administration. The meeting was in the Roosevelt Room in the West Wing of the White House, not far from the Cabinet Room. I was present at the meeting as Assistant to the chief domestic policy adviser to the President. Casey first told Reagan that he had been astonished to discover that over 80 percent of the ‘intelligence’ that the analysis side of the CIA produced was based on open public sources like newspapers and magazines. As he did to all the other secretaries of their departments and agencies, Reagan asked what he saw as his goal as director for the CIA, to which he replied with this quote, which I recorded in my notes of the meeting as he said it. Shortly thereafter I told Senior White House correspondent Sarah McClendon, who was a close friend and colleague, who in turn made it public.”
          ~Barbara Honegger.”


        • It was not ever recorded and the only person to ever claim having heard it is A HUGE QUACK.



          I worked with Barbara over a decade ago.

          She is bad news.

          Watching videos of CIA Director Casey you’ll notice how careful with words and speaking he was.

          He would never say what Barbara said he did, even after a barrel of whiskey, because it was not in his vocabulary or vernacular.

          4Trinity is a waste of time.

          • Who is Adam Fitzgerald?

            When did he pop out of the woodwork?

            I remember this quote from years ago…..no “fact-checkers” then to “debunk” it.

            Why now?…….Hmmmm.

            Her OLD word verses his sudden “debunking”?

            I didn’t read it all but you are very naive, trb, if you believe everything these so-called “debunkers” say. Especially concerning covid and 911.

            I’d say WAKE the F up! But I know better.

            (Why waste your time trb. Why are you still here?)

  • That’s one way to go about it. Or perhaps as I suggested over a year ago: shelter those who are vulnerable and let the rest of us get on with life. Grandma had it right.

    Response to Auntie Ovine. Not sure why it went here.

  • How’s these odds?

    • If you applied any logic, you would realize that a vaccine that’s 90% effective would mean 10% of people who got it will still get infected. This doesn’t mean it doesn’t work – it just means it only works the vast majority of the time.

      https://www.mlb.com/yankees/roster/coaches lists 27 staff, plus news articles suggest there’s plenty of less-notable staff that aren’t on such lists. If 7 of them test positive, that’s perfectly in line with established statistics.

      • Lol .
        Makes no diff.
        What I think.
        Or kym .
        Is whitewashing.
        The comments.

        I’m out.

        • No one is whitewashing your comments…You’re on moderation because occasionally you break the rules. So you had to wait until I got home from taking a family member to the doctor for me to approve the comment. Here it is…https://kymkemp.com/2021/05/12/1-death-18-new-cases-reported-today/#comment-1335867

          Why would anyone want to delete that particular comment and let all the other anti mask/ anti vaccination comments get posted here….?

          • Well, someone needed to tell the Bushy Tail that less than 3 is actually 10% of 27.

            Not 7.

            Even if they had 50 people on staff, which there is no evidence they do, 7 is still way over 10%.

            Y’all cool with 7 out of 27?

            Infection rate, post vaccine is way too high for my taste. And will spell disaster long term.

            But yay ! Go vax!!!

            Logic and common sense have been replaced by something unrecognizable. My effectiveness at dispelling the crapola matches that of the mad jab. Not very.

            And kym , I was unaware I was even on mod, because I’ve been able engage recently, and even earlier today unimpeded .

            (While TRB drops a “derp!?” Mean!)

            Being on moderation basically precludes one from participating in a very meaningful way and I’ve read the rules and try to abide. But seriously . I don’t know how your moderation, editing, post flushing rules work half the time; is it glitches, or rules I’m too obtuse to grasp; it’s still a mystery 🤷‍♀️

            I don’t question your actions and you’ve a right to maybe be feeling a little intolerant of seeing ANY posts from “anti-mask /anti-vax” community folks like me. But, if what I’m bringing to this discussion can be diluted down to anti-mask/anti-vax, I’m pretty sure I’ve failed lol.

            Trust me. The issue is a lot more complex than “anti-mask or anti-vaxxxxx”

            In the end of this tussle, (unless a lot more people open their eyes,) AI, and big pharma win.

            It’s been fun, in a frustrating twilight zone kinda way.

            How about spending the time that is irretrievably lost moderating my questionable contributions to this discussion resting, or enjoying your life? And I shall do likewise. That would probably bring us both more joy. 💚

      • Are you not aware of what that supposed 90% represents, Bushy?

        The jab was not, originally, supposed to keep anyone from getting covid and indeed that is becoming obvious.

        The idea that it somehow “protected” people from transmission was a w.h.o and cdc marketing ploy.
