Another long week of the data you read here NOT getting reported anywhere else, leading you to wonder whether the whole @%$ media is gaslighting you. (Pretty much yep.)
Also some of you have been watching some nutty video about snake venom. I know, because you’re telling me I gotta see it.
No. Wrongo. I don’t gotta see it. Step away from the snake venom video, sir.
As the cruise director of the happy ship Team Reality, my job is to steer you between the Scylla of “I’m so glad I got Covid after being double-boosted, my myocarditis is mild, yay!” and the Charybdis of the snake venom/5G/sticky magnetized quarter videos. (Remember the sticky magnetized quarter videos from last spring? Aren’t you glad you never told anyone you watched those?)
Who doesn’t need a pick-me-up, a little something to put a smile on his/her/they/them/its face?
Your faithful cruise director has the answer.
Take yourself over to Diana Zicklin Berrent’s Twitter feed.
Who’s Diana Zicklin Berrent? She makes a short appearance in PANDEMIA (now available at Amazon for $19.79). She's the founder of Survivor Corps, an organization dedicated to the proposition that no one who ever had Covid should ever have to work again.
Because Long Covid, see! Yes, the “Survivor” in Survivor Corps refers to people who have survived… Covid! Like, oh, about 998 out of every 1,000 people who get it.
Naturally, Berrent is a Covid panic porner of the highest order.
And she is NOT HAPPY WITH YOU PEOPLE! Any of you! She is living in April 2020 and you are living in April 2022 and she doesn’t like it one little bit. She wants masks. She wants mRNA for toddler. She wants mRNA for herself too. Lots of mRNA.
In fact she wants more mRNA so badly she lied to get some. Because “personal responsibility.”
No, I am not making this up. The leading lobbyist for “long Covid” believes that bragging publicly about lying is evidence of “personal responsibility.”
Berrent wants money, too. Your money. She’s begging for it right now, in the lamest possible way - claiming that Survivor Corps will shut down in nine days if she doesn’t raise $200,000.
If only. Take the over on the nine days.
But you don’t have to donate. You can just read the feed. Come for the pretend science:
Stay for the moral outrage.
So much moral outrage!
As the saner members of Team Apocalypse do their best to pretend that the last two years didn’t happen (No, friends, I never told you to spray your mail with disinfectant! I did leave my house in 2020, I promise!) - they are leaving a hard core of nutters who are very, very angry.
The truth is that these folks are pathetic in their neuroses and fear. I actually think laughing at them would be wrong, if they hadn’t spent the last two years trying to force masks and mRNA on the rest of us - as well as demanding an unlimited supply of taxpayer cash for the myth that is long Covid.
But they are, so they’ve earned it.
You can find the feed @dianaberrent
Thank me later.
It was hard to read through this. I got stuck laughing so hard at the snake venom video. Those folks are operating on a straight line. Everything leads to the same destination, no variables allowed.
Just like this lady. Hearing the vast majority are walking around the airports with no masks and the masked are none too happy about it. You would think being triple and quadruple vaxed with their masks would make them happy and feel "protected" but note, it doesn't.
When I walk in my neighborhood, I noticed in recent weeks there was about 5-10% of people, often young people wearing face masks outside. My friend said let them be. I disagree. I told him these are the same people who fervidly back job firings, mass failed vax for all and all kinds of penalties should their telescreen DNC Media order them to do so.
Unless their aged, when I walk past these people I look right in their eye and note they are quite uncomfortable by it. They look away but I make sure they know. You're a maskhole.
It's for their own damn good.
Cult members hate the ones who leave the most
God, I truly hate these people. I would not shed one tear if they all choked on a masked, covid dick.
One of the most interesting developments, imho, is the “turn” of Leana Wen. And now her former acolytes despise her more than Team Reality (almost).
I see her future.
It involves blood clots and auto immune disorders.
That will somehow be the fault of the purebloods in her mind.
I am reading this post between testifying at 3 SSA disability appeal hearings as a medical expert. I haven't seen it yet, but I'm waiting for the Long Covid people to hit the appeal level after that get denied initially. Like fibromyalgia, silicone implants causing lupus, and chronic fatigue syndrome, there will be no objective evidence of any impairment, just their testimony with a laundry list of symptoms all suspiciously sounding like many mental health diagnoses.
"Long covid" is another iteration of the panic porn. Common sense, and medical science tell us that sometimes it takes the body, depending on a multitude of factors, a long time to heal from a malady, perhaps it never completely does. "Long covid" is no different from, what I will call here for arguments sake: "long flu," "long auto accident injury," "long stroke" etc., etc. Why do people have so much trouble understanding this?
I am familiar with Diana Berrent and her organization. And I agree that she’s a bit over the top. And seems to be turning Covid into her career (she’s hardly the only one).
But I would suggest not ridiculing long Covid just because you don’t like this person or this organization. Because there is context here. Long Covid is a real thing, not a myth. Calling it a myth is ignorant and insulting.
How do I know? I had Covid in August of 2020. I have co-morbidities and our medical establishment left me home with Tylenol and a prayer, so I treated myself. But after the Covid symptoms had passed, I still had tremendous fatigue for more than 2 months. The kind of fatigue that doesn’t let you walk 20 feet without feeling like collapsing. Your heart pounding to 120 bpm just trying to stand up, trying to catch your breathe. Walking up in the morning exhausted (called “non-restorative sleep”. Your arms and legs feeling like they are held down with weights. It was VERY real. And the tremendous fear that this might be your future life, with no improvement. It’s terrifying.
So, if you truly think it’s a myth, educate yourself. I have seen estimates from legitimate studies that between 10-30% of Covid infections lead to long Covid. Look up “Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome” and “Viral Myalgia”. Look up Epstein-Barr and Mononucleosis for similar symptoms.
Don’t ridicule people who had Covid and were left with devastating symptoms afterwards (including circulatory and neurological diseases), by calling it a myth. Alex, if you believe the vaccine’s spike protein can cause all manner of illness and death, why do you think Covid’s spike proteins can’t?
You haven’t had Covid and you haven’t been vaxxed. So you know nothing personally about what these spike proteins can do to you. Don’t discount it. Until you walk in another man’s shoes, you can’t understand their experiences.
My doorbell rang yesterday. It was my neighbor whom I like. But she was wearing a mask on a nice spring day. I had never seen her wearing a mask before so it took me by surprise. I now realize that she too drank the kool-aid. Sad really. And she is not alone. Here in the People's Republic of Arlington, a substantial portion of the public still wear a mask outdoors and in their cars. These are people who pray at the same church as the lunatic mentioned in the article. No doubt they keep up with the vaccination program whose mantra is posted everywhere. I just noticed something about the feed for the lunatic-- with a minor letter change it becomes @dian aberrant. And if anyone is departing from a "normal" standard it is this harridan.
I am currently in Chicago and my neighborhood magazine stand/ coffee shop has a display with Pandemia, RFK Jr book, a copy of the US Constitution, and a book about conceal carry regulations in Chicago. A glimmer of hope??? I was SHOCKED to see it!
A new disorder has emerged: Stockholm Syndrome for Covidiots. 🤷🏻♀️
The world is a funny place. Some people always want to be a victim for any excuse at all.
Some people like myself just want to live life and refuse to be a victim.
According to today's standards I am a victim, I had an abusive father who put my mother in the hospital, today he would be arrested and beat me regularly because whatever happened to him, he told me I was the lightening rod hew would take his frustrations out on. i survived being fired from the family business right after buying a house at 22 taunting me I would now lose what I fought for, have survived severe burns, cancer twice, have had Chron's disease, survived Covid being hospitalized for 40 + days + rehab and always fought back from adversity.
Every time i couldn't wait for the next challenge, always looked forward to getting back at whatever it was I was doing when the setback happened.
You have a choice, live life as a coward and hope someone takes care of you or keep fighting.
I CHOSE living and fighting back. That is what so many lack today, a sense of pride and accomplishment against adversity.
This woman should move to Canada. Specifically mask obsessed Quebec. The lunatics at McGill and University of Toronto would embrace her as one of their own. This place is completely unhinged and lost all sense of context and perspective. In Canada, it's always March 2020. It's our Eastasia. Pathetic. Just plain old lame and pathetic. And embarrassing. We'd better get some good comedy out of this.
Why would I want to go read the feed of a certifiable nutcase on Twitter?
Had what the questionable test said was COVID back in Feb2022. I’m +70, have a heart condition, mild diabetes and have not been vaxxed. I survived just fine. In fact I came out of the 3 week long fatigue better than when I went in. Thank you, Jesus.
I believe this desperation to hold on to C19 is due to an individuals identity forged around C19. The identity is no longer relevant, and obviously this lady wants to remain important. What will she do now for content and what will her identity revolve around? It is kind of sad if wasn't being pushed on us. The mental pathology is akin to empty nest syndrome, with a lack of purpose. Maybe we should add long covid as an entry in the DSM manual under mental conditions?
Though I 100% appreciate Alex's stance on long covid because who knows what the Faucis of the world would have done to us if they were able to push the dangers of long covid, and people like Diana Berrent are mentally ill and need help, I do think Alex is a little too dismissive of the long term effects of covid. I had Delta in October and at this point I will probably never have the same smell and taste I had before. My lungs also hurt much more often than they used to and I had a light case. I'm not complaining, but this is a strange virus. I've never had something before where you thought you were getting better and then you regress so many times. Anyway, I'm not saying Ivermectin is necessarily the key, but Alex being so dismissive of therapeutics that could have helped with some of these lasting effects might not be the right take either. Covid is complicated and Alex has been great, but even the smartest people get some things wrong.
The snake venom videos are not necessarily snake venom videos. That's marketing. The possibility of a snake venom protein inserted into a coronavirus is the real question. Remember Peter Daszak talking about how easy it is to manipulate a coronavirus? Don't just dismiss, but discern! I don't know if that's the case, I'm just saying don't so easily dismiss something just because it sounds absurd...how many absurd things have happened these last few years that turned out to be true???
My prediction a couple of months ago I said to my daughter pay attention to the TV commercials they have now switched from getting vax amd boosted to warnings of Long Covid. Now the interesting thing will be to see will the unvaccinated (but naturally infected) complain of long Covid and how will they be able to write off the fact that only the vaccinated are getting “long covid” … we shall see.
Alex the use and stabilization of snake venom in the human body has been a study for many years and can be seen on NIH website studies around 2016. You haven’t heard of this so it sounds absurd but the truth around the snake venom peptides being similar to Covid spike proteins is happening and legitimate. If you have been following untainted scientific research there are a plethora of scientists stating that nothing about the SARS-CoV-2 virus is able to develop naturally from nature. Better not be so quick to refuse information you can’t fathom.
Lunacy and madness…Happy Earth Day to everyone… everyone, including General Motors digging up the Salton Sea for Lithium in the California desert. What green earth 🌍 eyed money 💰 Hippocrits.
She seems like either a grifter or someone who is just paralyzed by fear-or most likely a combination of the two. But is long covid really a myth? I have no personal experience with covid so I have no basis for an opinion. I have had viruses in the past which seem to linger in the form of fatigue and brain fog. Why couldn’t covid do this?
The biggest nut bag is Barack Obama. He is still telling the lie that the vaccine stops the virus. Is certain masks work. Apparently is unaware of deaths caused by vaccine. He just sneers at all those that decided against the jab. How many here voted for this pompous ass? He knows more minorities have been negatively impacted by vaccine. Does not give a crap. Is it really that the drug companies have so much vaccine inventory that now they got Obama to push more boosters on unsuspecting people that faithfully believe this troll? Is it really about money?
Do not have to believe venom hypothesis, but if nicotine gum or patch may help Covid symptoms, why not try it? Same for monoclonal antibodies that treat snake bites. Maybe infusion of C and Glutathione for long Covid to neutralize toxins produced by Covid or vax. That has been the problem with treating Covid—- why limit possible treatments and can we really trust the health establishment now that vaccines have failed?
Alex, any analysis on the data from the Walgreens showing the triple jabbed are 103% more likely to get COVID? Just heard about yesterday.
Yeah ... I'm in northern Michigan and just now heard ANOTHER TAXPAYER FUNDED AD telling me to do the research and get vaccinated / boosted because of course, it's safe and effective. Well guess WTF ? The shots are neither safe nor effective. How about a little mis / mal / dis-information pushback from us poor folks paying to be lied to by our government? Again I say WTF is wrong with people? Common sense ain't so common anymore. Pray, plan, prepare and RESIST.
I wish we could mandate a course in assessment of scientific journal articles for people like this Diana Berrent woman. "Mitochondrial dysfunction" is a feature of programmed cell death that occurs in a host of physiological situations. Many viruses trigger such pathways in immune cells and that allows them to evade the immune system. Some heart diseases are associated with mitochondrial dysfunction in cardiac cells; some liver diseases are due to mitochondrial dysfunction in liver cells-because a cell can't survive if the mitochondria aren't producing ATP. It's not unique to COVID. Influenza has been reported to disrupt mitochondrial function in T-cells. That's also how cyanide kills you-by blocking a step in oxidative phosphorylation in the mitochondria so your cells cannot produce ATP. And some people who are in high risk groups suffer long-lasting consequences after an infection. We knew this before 2020 and it remains true now. This disease hysteria is what happens when all the people (over multiple generations) who fell asleep in biology class wake up one day in 2020 and start freaking out over things that have been happening inside their bodies their entire lives.
Love your snark but have you read the patents for the so-called vaccines? Several nano technology patents are incorporated into the moderna patents which involve graphene and the self assembly of circuitry at the nano scale. Why is it in the patents if it's crazy wacko made up fantasy talk? Patents are pretty much the de facto standard for real world truth and fact.
The recent arrest and conviction of Charles Lieber for secretly working with the Chinese on injectable nano tech is evidence that these technologies not only exist but are THE forefront of what the Chinese and pharma industries are doing right now. The EUAs allow for these experiments to be done on a mass scale under the guise of vaccination campaigns.
The Rice University video called Teslaphoresis is mind blowing, where they show exactly how "nanotubes" are activated from distances using electromagnetic frequencies and how they self assemble into wires and build working circuitry at the nano level. Circuits that can turn lights on! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1d0Lg6wuvc&t=83s
Cross reference that with the past 2 years of public statements by Klaus Schwab and Yuval Harari from WEForum, talking about how "the age of privacy and autonomy is over" (Yuval Harari on 60 Minutes) and "humans beings are now hackable animals" (Yuval Harari at the World Economic Forum) and how "when you take DNA editing injections it changes you, it changes who you are, and changes your fundamental identity" (Klaus Schwab to Charlie Rose)
I recommend you look further into that and pointed you in the right direction so you don't waste any time should you perhaps be interested.
Narcissists and anti-social personalities never admit that anything they do is wrong or unjustifiable. Their perspective is the only perspective.
Most of us didn't see this in such clear focus when the 'woke' culture began. Sure, many of us were flummoxed when 6 year olds were punished harshly for planting a kiss on someone they liked because of "zero tolerance for sexual harassment" but we didn't see where all the virtuous posturing was leading.
Those who have neurological symptoms, brain fog, autoimmune flares, hair loss after a covid vaccine are ignored or dismissed as being “anxious.”
Those who have these same symptoms and claim “long covid” are given attention.
I'm in Twitter time out for pointing out that we don't have randomized controlled trials or FDA approval of "medical cannabis" yet Kentucky Governor thinks we should legalize "medical cannabis"...while sending threatening letters to physicians who prescribe the "I" word off label for covid. Tagged for "misinformation."
She is right. There is a huge problem with long covid. Long Covid Anxiety Disorder that is. She is obviously trying to make a buck, but there so many people who still think covid is the plague. Our job as sane people is to not appease our friends and relatives who are still wearing masks and getting 4th shots after having covid twice. People are so damaged. Time to heal with a big splash of cold water.
I'm betting Berrent lites a candle then genuflects before bedtime every night at picture of St. Fauci wearing two mask. :-)
I know this is a bit off topic - but is a great concern for me and this is a current AB thread so I thought I'd ask/post here:
MSM is touting a number of "polls" that supposedly say a majority of people still want AIRLINE MASK MANDATES in place. This is being used to support the CDC/DOJ appealing the FL Judge's ruling disallowing them...
I don't know ANYONE who wants the insane Airline Mask Mandate to still be in place, so I'm skeptical of these "polls".
What do you think?? Thanks!
Long Covid - AKA poisoning from the ‘drug’
I'm SO frustrated over the "snake venom" video... JUST what the other side WANTS so that they can lump EVERYTHING else we are saying in with that INSANITY - and discredit EVERYTHING opposing the STATE COVID beliefs and policies...
WHY do people DO this??? And WHY do so many of us on this side FALL for such tripe???
I feel bad for any guy who is "in a relationship" with women like that, cowering in fear of imaginary bug a boos.....Can you imagine how crazy trying to relate to raw emotion and demands all the time would be?
This woman needs serious psychiatric help. A lot of it.
some people are scarred for life. the only problem is- they want to force the rest of us to live in fear with them. misery loves company
I don’t actually think long covid is a total joke, but to the extent that some people have it, she isn’t helping them. She is so psycho.
Word of the day: nuance. May be a difficult sell in some places. Early Treatment - its a thing. A lifesaving thing. It's been a thing for quite a while. So is natural immunity. So is vaccine injury, and negative VE. So is Long COVID. (Those spike proteins stick around - in some people - for a very long time, causing trouble; turns out Early Treatment helps avoid Long COVID. Who knew)
Word of the day: Nuance.
Their fear is fine until you realize we're not free anymore, and so the fears of a few can then cause authorities to redistribute the pain and poverty broadly.
That Snake video should not be taken too seriously. When it was first released, I immediately noticed it being marketed all over Rumble with that stupid slogan "Watch the Water". I smelled something fishy. That whole video was no different than the leftist propaganda that only goes by emotion, and plays dark cinematic music. It was poorly produced, and pretty obvious it was aiming at a religious audience. I feel like that video could be used to discredit the legitimate concerns and movement against the government lies.
According to what was proposed in that video, we would all be paralyzed, or dead by now, especially our pets.
Dr. Lee Merritt and David Knight did a good job breaking down "Watch the Water".
Long viral disease is real. How many people who claim long Covid are honestly and accurately describing a material decline in their health? Who knows; certainly WHO doesn't. Probably much less than 100% and much more than 0%.
Because long viral disease happens, we should all be prepared by eating a good real food diet without added sweeteners and processed junk. We should also be getting plenty of fresh air and exercise. If we do, then our immune systems would be up to the tasks of reducing symptocatic cases, hospitalizations, long disease, and death.
Not necessarily. I and others who are very fit have had protracted symptoms. I think there are some unknown immune system variations that may predispose oneself. That said, good protocols are a must, regardless.
Why is no one reporting on the current situation in China? It's horrific. The Guardian has pretty decent coverage, but almost no one else.
She retweets Feigl-Dingleberry so you know she’s legit!
I didn't watch Snakes on a plane so I decided Watch the water an excellent substitute. Anyway, I could start my very own vaers system on just the people I know with jab side effects.
One of the most interesting things I read today on “long COVID”.
Just remember folks, everybody from the conservative/Republican/right side of society keeps telling us, “wait for the November election, things will get better!“…
It’s 28 weeks from now, they expect you to continue to suffer and basically be ignored by these sociopathic scum masquerading as leaders, people of influence, and of authority?!
We’re not gonna make it past early summer, I’ll be surprised if America makes it till the end of spring, but I guarantee you this, America burns in summer 2022 like it did in summer 2020.
And remember, these Republican fucks did nothing then, what the hell makes you think they’re going to do something now…
Democrats/ sociopathy, and Republican cowardice, what a despicable hideous marriage…
