    I'm in England. I know a family of 4 who live in a small house. They basically ignored a lot of lockdown restrictions. Anyway the mother has cardio problem. The family got tested. Only she had virus symptoms. The whole family tested negative. She tested again and got a positive result.
    The daughters boyfriends, the kids from the husband's 1st marriage, elderly grandparents.. no one got a positive result apart from the mother.

    The Covid tests don't actually test for Covid 19 as I understand it. They basically test for strain in the immune system. So if you are fairly ill...u are likely to test positive. Also, the threshold point for being classed as "positive" varies hugely. So you can make up a positive test... LITERALLY.

    And finally, u could test pos one second, then test neg on a test 60 seconds later.

    I think a viral strain HAD appeared. But the official story ie need for massive LDs and frankenvaxes is collapsing before our very eyes.

    Finally, electronic warfare causing immuno resposnes IS real. The US used it in Iraq and I believe Kiev.
    I can think of people who had "Coronavirus" who lived in city centre locations ie near 5G masts.
    Given how the Establishment lie on other big things, its not inconceivable that they lied re 5G and the immune system.

    I have not read enough on 5G yet, but recent tests on animals involving mice and rats (2016 and 2019) have shown some worrying results in my opinion. The 2019 study found that EMFs from mobile phones are linked to DNA damage in these animals. The earlier study in 2016 found that EMFs of any frequencies can harm the nervous system - let alone 5G!

    Something very important that I forgot to add is that "studies over the years have documented that there is often a link between conclusions of studies and the source of the money that paid for the research." So expect a LOT of BS around this issue as well.

    Argentina threatens to cancel deal for Sputnik vaccine as Russia fails to deliver

    Moscow owes 18.5m doses, leaving Argentina in a ‘very critical situation’ with only 12% fully vaccinated, leaked letter reveals

    Thu 22 Jul 2021 19.39 BST

    Argentina’s gamble on the Sputnik V vaccine has left it in a “very critical situation” because of Russia’s failure to fulfill delivery commitments, according to an official letter to Moscow leaked on Thursday.

    Russia owes Argentina 18.5m doses of its Sputnik V jab, over two-thirds of them vital second-component doses.

    Only 12% of Argentinians are fully vaccinated so far, partly due to failed Sputnik deliveries of its second component. Another 37% have received only a single dose.

    This compares disastrously with double-dose vaccination rates of over 60% in neighbouring Chile and Uruguay, countries that did not bet so heavily on the Russian vaccine.

    The low two-dose vaccination rate leaves Argentina particularly exposed to the arrival of the Delta variant. Neighbouring Uruguay, meanwhile, has already approved moving to a three-dose regimen.

    Argentina’s reliance on the Sputnik V vaccine was accentuated by a special vaccination law passed in October last year that effectively made it impossible for this country to import US vaccines such as Pfizer or Moderna. Argentina has relied instead on a mix of Sputnik, Sinopharm and AstraZeneca shots.

    The lack of Sputnik’s second component, which has left 6 million Argentinians with just the first Russian jab, has become a charged political issue in the run-up to midterm elections here this November.

    The political uproar left the government of the Peronist president, Alberto Fernández, little choice but to threaten to end Argentina’s contract with Russia.

    “You are leaving us very little options to continue fighting for you and this project,” says the letter from the presidential Covid adviser Ceclia Nicolini to the Russian Direct Investment Fund, which markets Sputnik V worldwide.

    The letter said Argentina “urgently” needed delivery of second doses and warned that “the entire contract is at risk of being publicly cancelled”.

    Pressure from the centre-right opposition party Juntos (Together) recently forced Fernández to change last year’s vaccine law to accommodate the donation of Moderna and Pfizer vaccines from the US, a fact that was underlined in the letter to Moscow.

    “We just issued a presidential decree that allows us to sign contracts with American companies and receive donations from the US,” says the letter which was leaked to the daily La Nación.

    Argentina is meanwhile testing mixing vaccines to replace the second dose that Sputnik has failed to deliver.

    Argentina is not alone in having problems with Russia’s vaccine. Other countries have terminated or reviewed their contracts to purchase Sputnik V amid reports of delayed shipments from Russia – and allegations that a royal middleman from the United Arab Emirates used exclusive resale rights for Sputnik V to charge large mark-ups across three continents.

    Ghana’s health minister last week announced that his country had cancelled its Sputnik V contract with the Dubai-based middleman after he said he had been told that the supplier had “run out of stock and that they are waiting on the manufacturer to supply them.”

    The middleman scheme was first revealed by the Moscow Times, which found in an investigation that Russia had awarded exclusive resale rights for Sputnik V to a minor Emirati royal.

    Earlier this year, Kenya blocked the use of 75,000 Sputnik V jabs provided via the Emirati firm because of concerns that they had not come directly from the manufacturer in Russia.

    And fellas don't try to tell me that it's fake news or whatever

    I've been keeping tabs on the Sputnik V twitter account and for the last couple of months its posts have been flooded by panicked Argentinians demanding to know when the 2nd doses will arrive

    Russia has promised more than it can deliver, and left millions of Argentinians without the full vaccine

    Basically a similar sort of story to the Sukhoi Superjet fiasco, when operators in Mexico and other countries had to keep them grounded half the time due to problems with servicing and supplies of parts from Russia

    Russia again snatched defeat from the jaws of victory

    Yet nevermind this news. Argentine at least has its own production of Sputnik V now underway

    What's really damning is the Moscow Times report on the UAE royal who's apparently been given rights over distribution of the vaccine in a range of countries

    A Royal Mark Up: How an Emirati Sheikh Resells Millions of Russian Vaccines to the Developing World

    The Moscow Times investigated a deal between Russia and a minor Dubai royal to supply poor countries with Sputnik V — at high prices.

    Russia has awarded an Emirati royal exclusive rights to sell its Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine to a host of countries in at least three continents in a deal that has seen buyers paying huge premiums for supplies, a Moscow Times investigation has found.

    Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, Russia has advertised Sputnik V as a “vaccine for all mankind” and promoted the jab across the developing world as a cheap route out of the pandemic. But documents obtained by The Moscow Times, as well as interviews with officials and vaccine buyers, show that countries from Pakistan to Guyana have been forced to deal with a royal middleman and companies based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) acting as official Sputnik V resellers asking clients to pay more than double Russia’s advertised price to get their hands on the jab.

    The deals have left a trail of controversy in their wake, threatening to undermine Russia’s already troubled vaccine diplomacy efforts.
    news

    The setup hinges on an arrangement between the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) and Aurugulf Health Investments, an Abu Dhabi-based company established late last year with close connections to Emirati royalty. RDIF granted Aurugulf exclusive rights to sell and distribute its flagship Sputnik V vaccine in countries around the world, documents reveal, with Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook al-Maktoum, a low-ranking Dubai royal, acting as the chief dealmaker.

    Connections between Russia, Maktoum and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) over sales of Sputnik V in the developing world were first outlined by Norwegian outlet VG in an investigation published last month. While neither RDIF nor the Abu Dhabi company responded to requests for comment for this story, The Moscow Times has found a complex web of connections between the two leading to deals to supply millions of vaccine doses to some of the world’s most in-need countries.

    On March 10, 2021, businessman Jacques Sarraf traveled to Abu Dhabi for a meeting about importing Sputnik V into Lebanon.

    Sarraf, head of the Lebanese Russian Business Council, honorary Russian consul in Lebanon and chairman of the Malia Group conglomerate, had first been contacted by RDIF six months earlier as part of its sales drive to potentially interested parties.

    Sputnik V had been authorized in Lebanon and Sarraf was interested in getting his hands on doses for Lebanon’s hard-hit private sector as supplies from the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Covax facility were slow to arrive.

    RDIF put him in touch with Chimera Investments, an Abu Dhabi-based private investment vehicle linked to Aurugulf, which the Russians told Sarraf was the “regional distributor” for Sputnik V. They could strike a deal directly, RDIF said, without Russia’s involvement.

    “I went there, I had a meeting in Abu Dhabi and told them I would be interested in getting Sputnik V,” Sarraf told The Moscow Times.

    “They said ‘OK, you are our distributor in Lebanon.’ It was so easy. We placed an order that day for one million doses — 500,000 of each component — and agreed on a delivery schedule up until the end of August.”

    The Lebanon deal was just one of a handful of Sputnik V supply agreements struck during the first months of 2021 between Maktoum and Aurugulf-linked investment companies on one side and governments and private healthcare companies across the world on the other.

    Despite being some of the most crucial healthcare procurements in history, the deals needed no approval from Moscow as they fell under a sweeping agreement with an RDIF subsidiary named Human Vaccine giving Aurugulf and Maktoum the exclusive right to resell Sputnik V in the developing world, according to multiple documents seen by The Moscow Times.

    Chimera Investments — the company Sarraf visited in Abu Dhabi — is a subsidiary of Royal Group, a sprawling conglomerate run by powerful royal Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed al-Nahyan, UAE’s national security advisor and brother of the current leader of Abu Dhabi. The al-Nahyan family is one of the six ruling families of the UAE.

    Corporate registry data seen by The Moscow Times also shows that Royal Group is one of two entities controlling Aurugulf, which was registered in Abu Dhabi in October 2020 — two months after Sputnik V was authorized in Russia and weeks into RDIF’s intense marketing drive. The company has little corporate presence, according to registry data shared by corporate intelligence outfit Diligencia.

    Aurugulf is named in multiple documents seen by The Moscow Times as the exclusive rights holder for the supply of Sputnik V in “many countries” around the world. In at least two instances — deals to supply millions of vaccines to private sector providers in Pakistan and Lebanon — Chimera Investments has also been involved.

    “Aurugulf has been appointed … as the exclusive seller and distributor of … ‘Sputnik V’ adenovirus vector vaccine for Covid-19 in many countries of the world,” one letter sent from Aurugulf to an African government reads.

    Minutes from a board meeting of Pakistan’s drug regulatory authority say it received a letter from RDIF confirming that “exclusive authorization has been issued by the first deputy CEO of RDIF, dated 8 November 2020, in the name of Aurugulf Health Investments … for many countries, including Pakistan.”

    The scope of Russia’s agreement with Aurugulf and in exactly which countries RDIF has granted the company exclusive rights to sell, market and distribute Sputnik V are not clear. The Moscow Times found Aurugulf involvement with at least four countries that have already signed deals for Sputnik V jabs — Ghana, Guyana, Lebanon and Pakistan — alongside documents naming Aurugulf as the exclusive supplier in South Africa and local reports the outfit also has rights to sell to Indonesia.

    The arrangement differs from Russia’s agreements to supply Sputnik V to EU members Slovakia and Hungary — both of which were direct agreements with RDIF’s Human Vaccine subsidiary to supply Sputnik V at $9.95 a dose, or $19.90 for the full two-component inoculation.

    That compares with $19 per dose charged by Aurugulf to the Ghanian government, $24 in Guyana and $22.50 per dose paid by private provider AGP in Pakistan.

    The point person striking Aurugulf’s potentially lucrative Sputnik V resale deals is Maktoum, who is loosely connected to the UAE regime through family and marriage.

    Aurugulf, having received exclusive distribution rights from Russia for Sputnik V, subsequently “agreed to appoint the private office of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook al-Maktoum” as the company’s “agent” to “develop, distribute and market our products” in a number of countries, including Pakistan and South Africa, documents obtained by The Moscow Times show.

    Industry figures told The Moscow Times that Maktoum himself has explicit approval, endorsement and support from Moscow for selling Sputnik V across parts of the developing world.

    “We were told by the Russian side that Maktoum is the exclusive seller of the vaccine to a number of countries, so we went through him,” an executive at one company importing Sputnik V told The Moscow Times, requesting anonymity.

    An invoice shared with The Moscow Times by Pakistan’s Profit magazine lists “the private office of Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook al-Maktoum (through Chimera Investment)” as the supplier for a shipment of 50,000 doses at a price of $1.125 million to AGP in Pakistan. The bank details of Maktoum’s private office are listed as the recipient for the payment.

    Middle Eastern analysts described Maktoum as a mid-ranking or lower-tier royal — somebody who can use his connections and access to score business deals around the world and act in concert with more senior royal figures to advance their business or political interests.

    “He is known to have a strong network across Africa and has done a lot of work in Angola and Ghana before, in different sectors,” said Patrick Lord, Diligencia commercial director.

    “It is not unusual for minor royals to trade off their ruling family connections, even if they are not actually very senior.”

    Maktoum’s own business is the Ameri Group, which describes itself on its website as a company involved in energy, infrastructure and agriculture projects across 19 countries, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa.

    Experts familiar with Maktoum and the world of Emirati politics and business, who declined to be quoted, doubted he would be operating without approval from above.
    Local anger

    The use of the Emirati scheme to sell Sputnik V has been met with uproar in almost every country where a supply deal is known to have taken place.

    In Pakistan and Lebanon, private companies leapt at the chance to get vaccines, circumventing sluggish national rollouts and delays to the WHO’s own vaccine sharing Covax facility. Sarraf said that in just seven days businesses requested vaccines for 830,000 people — 12% of Lebanon’s population — at $38 per jab plus hospital fees, more than half the country’s monthly minimum wage.

    Local Pakistani supplier AGP is embroiled in legal proceedings after selling its first batches to private clinics and is now battling with the government over what price the precious jabs can be sold at. It paid a wholesale price of $22.50 each for the first batch of 50,000 doses, which arrived in Karachi on March 17 having been shipped from Abu Dhabi via Bahrain, transport documents show. That’s more than twice Russia’s advertised selling price, even before private hospitals added their own mark up.

    The shipment of the vaccines cost less than $0.10 per dose, according to an air freight receipt obtained by The Moscow Times.

    The deals between Maktoum and private sector distributors in Lebanon and Pakistan also confer exclusive local distribution rights, potentially blocking the governments in Beirut and Islamabad from obtaining and distributing Sputnik V directly.

    A possible Aurugulf deal to import Sputnik V into Kenya for use in the private sector has also run into trouble. The country’s Health Ministry pulled Sputnik V’s authorization for emergency use after discovering an imported batch of 75,000 had arrived from Dubai, and not directly from the Russian government, Dmitriy Charneskiy, second secretary at the Russian Embassy in Nairobi told The Moscow Times.

    “The vaccines ended up not being used and they even tried to resell them to other countries,” he said.

    “If you are looking for a happy Sputnik V story, this isn’t it.”

    The Moscow Times was not able to verify the specific involvement of Aurugulf in the deal to sell Sputnik V vaccines in Kenya, though there are no other known partners or producers of the vaccine based in Dubai, from where the shipment arrived, or the UAE.

    The deals are not confined to the private sector.

    Russia has also directly instructed governments to deal with Aurugulf and Maktoum under the terms of the exclusive resale agreements — despite attempts from those states to deal directly with Moscow or the RDIF.

    In both Ghana and Guyana, the agreements with a Middle Eastern middleman have been met with loud criticism from opposition politicians.

    In Ghana, the government was attacked for agreeing to import 3.4 million doses of Sputnik V at $19 a dose — a deal which would see Aurugulf make $30 million after buying the jabs at Russia’s $9.95 asking price.

    The Health Ministry said it had tried and failed to secure the vaccine through contacts with the Russian government, the Russian Embassy in Ghana and RDIF directly, eventually turning to Aurugulf in early March.

    A similar story unfolded in one of South America’s poorest countries after Russian authorities instructed Guyana to deal with Maktoum and Aurugulf to get hold of Sputnik V vaccines. It struck a deal for 200,000 jabs at $24 a dose, weeks after the government had published a video showing Maktoum arriving in the country on a private jet for a string of high-profile meetings.

    As Russia has struggled to ramp up production and is nowhere near on track to deliver its promise of 1.6 billion jabs produced this year, some of the Aurugulf deals have also run into supply trouble.

    In Lebanon, Sarraf has received just 80,000 of the one million doses he was promised by August.

    “The last shipment was in April. During May and June we didn’t receive one vial,” he said, adding that when he spoke to Chimera last week they didn’t know when they would be in a position to send the next shipment.

    Analytics company Airfinity estimates Russia has exported 22 million doses since the start of the pandemic, adding that the hoped-for explosion in international production has yet to take off.
    Murky stories

    The reasons why Russia gave Maktoum and Aurugulf a free hand to sell Sputnik V to a host of countries — including strategically important players in Russia’s foreign policy such as Pakistan — are unclear.

    The terms and scope of the agreements have not been published.

    Based on public statements made by health ministries in Ghana and Guyana, it appears countries themselves have no knowledge they are covered by the Emirati agreement until they try to buy the vaccines. As part of the process for granting Sputnik V emergency use authorization, Pakistan’s medical regulator required the local Russian embassy to explicitly “verify the authenticity” of the Aurugulf setup and involvement of Maktoum.

    Even some on the Russian side say they don't understand the system.

    Ruslan Aliyev, Russia’s deputy trade representative in Karachi told The Moscow Times: “We were in touch with AGP, they invited us to welcome the first batch of vaccines. But I do not know where the vaccines come from. I do not know what Aurugulf is, I have never heard about them."

    “The Sputnik V story here is sort of murky,” said Charneskiy, the Russian diplomat in Kenya. “I don’t know who exactly brought in the vaccines, I just know they came from the UAE. We had no involvement in the distribution at all.”

    For Russia, theories ranging from a desire to limit its liability to attempts to curry favor with the Emirati elite have been put forward as possible reasons for the deal.

    “Russia could be protecting itself from the reputational risks linked to producing and selling a major vaccine across the world,” said Ilya Shumalov, head of Transparency International in Russia.

    For the countries with no option but to negotiate with an Emirati royal as their best shot of getting life-saving vaccines, the feeling is one of helplessness.

    In response to domestic criticism over his deal with Aurugulf, Guyana’s President Irfaan Ali told local journalists at a press conference: “Every single manufacturer, developer, countries — whether it was for Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson, AstraZeneca or Sputnik — we tried.”

    “We tried countries directly, we tried developers directly, we tried manufacturers directly, and we tried diplomatic channels. We tried every single thing and we continue to try every single day.”

    The problem here is not giving someone the rights to distribute the vaccine in the private healthcare system of whatever countries.
    It's rather that these countries seem to also be blocked from acquiring the vaccines directly through RDIF/Moscow. Instead they're being ripped off and there's no guarantee for them that these are the genuine article.

    At least that's what's alleged. I'm having trouble believing it because it's so baffling

    But what lends credibility is that UAE involvement. This isn't the first time I've heard of relations with poor Middle Eastern and African countries being sacrificed for the benefit of holding the UAE sheikh's balls.



    I wasn't able to confirm this story despite trying, but Rune is generally a reliable source on Yemen, or rather his sources are.

    I don't know. Are Aurus and Sukhoi LTS sales really worth sacrificing future relations with a range of developing countries for?
    I'd rather drop a FOAB on these feudal dimwits. But the Russian elite have more in common with them than differences, even to the point of sacrificing the international standing of the country for the benefit of selling some high-end toys.

    Free Yemen is backed by Iran so I do not see why Russia would be kissing UAE ass. Potential sales of the "call it whatever you want" jet
    are not enough to start loving the Saudis and their allies.

    Also, the story about expulsions is BS. Students in Russia demonstrate about all sorts of shit and nobody expects them to behave
    like senior diplomats. Expelling some students would be over the top grovelling and pandering. The UAE will not even pay attention to what
    some students are doing in some educational institution. Russia would have to throw Syria and Iran under the bus to satisfy such
    customers. So the relationship with these customers is take it or leave just like is the case with Turkey.

    Yes

    They have been developing for nearly a century and in that time they developed into nothing of value (and they fucked over Russia on several occasions)

    Meanwhile UAE is a valuable and wealthy economic partner which invests cold hard cash generously in vital sectors including aerospace industry

    Math is crystal clear

    Just because they are poor doesn't mean they deserve to die

    Ignoring them is enough

    They both run financially solvent and stable nations so they definitely have that in common to the benefit of ther respective populations

    Contrast that with USSR which was seen (and behaved) as nothing more than charity organization to be taken advantage of for free stuff and then discarded like used condom

    Again, math is crystal clear



    Bonus reminder: Argentina was one of the first countries and the first Latin American country to ban RT News from airing, keep this in mind always when contemplating their objections

    A mini pandemic with identical covid19 like illness,that began in US in summer 2019? Cool

    Interesting video for the trolls , who calls "conspiracies" , that covid19 began in America.
    Here is the bullet proof evidence , that this was not a conspiracy but a real high possibility ,of startign there, and the media call the virus ,the "vaping illness" , symptons the same , internal images of sick people lungs identical too ,to covid19, and evidence of not one but two accident leaks of viruses in Fort detrick.

    this is all over US media , but was a story that die very short that disappeared as soon it began, without no follow up , of what really happened that people was dying to an unusually deadlier flu/covid like illness. THE US military bioweapons lab at fort detrick was working with corona viruses , surprise surprise and animals. And many thousands of civilians near the facility got ill .this happened just 2-3 months before it shows in china.


    A must see video , the chronology of events of "vaping19"/covid19 , how it all began. Laughing



    -Summer 2019,. when covid19 really began , (in america)
    -sept 2019 , military soldiers from fort detrick ,travel to china olympic games and fish market.
    - december 2019 , china report of a mysterious corona illness spreading very fast in wuhan.
    - late december , Before China knows is facing a dangerous virus , CNN by "amazing coincidence" plant the official story , that the anglo powers will officially use , and "solve the crime" and blame china for "hiding an accident" in wuhan lab , that not even american scientist ,canadian ,french and british working there noticed.
    - january , china officially declares a major epidemy emergency and warns the world.
    -shortly after that trump officially blames china for reporting "late" and hiding an "accident"
    based on "anonymous sources" they had and suggest $$$ reparation damages for the world ,for the damages their virus cause.


    So every verifiable evidence , shows ,the entire pandemic was a multi purpose setup , a false flag event , by the anglowest to stop china economy ,and by weaken all America adversaries economies too. but also to control their own population ,through fear mongering to demand endless lockdowns for the middle class and forced vaccinations . the west unleashed a virus in china and the world ,to completely dominate the world. their tactics was , based on their believe ,that they will be much better prepared to handle it , (since the virus was in their lab first) and so likely they had vaccines already made , before china and Russia and iran got infested.

    Russia barely has some nominal relations with Israel. OTOH Russia's relations with Iran is extremely robust.

    'Blood on their hands': UK fury at EU leaders for slating AstraZeneca's Covid vaccine 'out of spite over Brexit' after study finds it has the same risk of blood clots as Pfizer's
    There are higher blood clots rates among people who got Pfizer, a study found
    But the risk of clots is a massive eight times higher if you get Covid
    UK officials say EU leaders who slated the Oxford jab have 'blood on their hands'
    Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine is just as likely to trigger blood clots as AstraZeneca's, according to a study that has prompted fury among UK Government officials.

    Scientists compared rates of thrombosis among more than 1.3million recipients of either jab in Spain.

    Both vaccines came with a tiny risk of causing blood clots, with scientists branding their safety profiles 'broadly similar'. Pfizer's jab may even be more likely to trigger the rare blood-clotting complication, the data suggested.

    Lovely to just sit back and watch these "Covid Wars" and things are going to get ugly the further we go along this path. My own country still fails to give the go ahead for Sputnik V - the safest vaccine so far. Every single tender in our Government is fraught with corruption. Pfizer and J&J must have paid handsomely.

    meanwhile in the USA

    WH dodges question on why vaccinated Americans must wear masks while infected migrants released into TX towns

    Border Patrol has reportedly been releasing infected migrants into rural Texas towns

    White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre declined to directly answer a question as to how the Biden administration justifies asking vaccinated Americans to wear masks while the Border Patrol releases coronavirus infected migrants into Texas border towns

    "You talked about this administration having a priority of protecting the American people," Fox News' Peter Doocy said to Jean-Pierre Wednesday at the White House. "Can you help us understand why is it that the federal government is asking vaccinated Americans to wear masks to stop the spread of COVID-19 but at the same time, federal agents are also releasing COVID-19 border crossers into small towns in Texas."

    Doocy's question comes as coronavirus cases among migrants have surged as much as 900% in some areas and Fox News reported earlier this week that illegal immigrants infected with the coronavirus were being released to local charities and housed in rural Texas hotels without the knowledge of local law enforcement.

    Additionally, it was reported this week that two DHS whistleblowers warned of dangerous conditions for migrant children at the border and said they were told to downplay the severity of a coronavirus outbreak among migrant children housed at Fort Bliss.

    Along Mexico border, covid spike and more migrant families stall plans to end Title 42 expulsions

    A spike in coronavirus infections in Mexico and along the southern U.S. border has shelved Biden administration plans to phase out the controversial public health law used to return more than 1 million migrants to Mexico, according to U.S. officials working on border policy.

    The delay points to President Biden’s deepening predicament at the border, where the migration surge he has described as seasonal is growing larger this summer while coronavirus caseloads rise. Republicans have hammered Biden’s moves to ease Trump-era restrictions as a threat to public health. But the president is also taking fire from immigrant advocates who have denounced the expulsion program known as Title 42 and challenged it in court because it prevents most asylum seekers from applying for humanitarian protection under U.S. law.

    Officials said last month that the government was preparing to end the return-to-Mexico policy, without providing a timetable, though several media outlets reported Title 42 would no longer be used on families after July 31. But the explosive spread of the delta variant in recent weeks, and a huge influx of Central American families crossing into the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas, have recalibrated the Biden administration’s thinking, according to four U.S. officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss internal deliberations.

    The administration now fears it will be blamed for a pandemic resurgence made worse by the border influx.

    “It's the hottest part of the summer and apprehensions are skyrocketing!” Brian Hastings, chief of the Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley sector, said in a Twitter post after agents there made more than 20,000 arrests in a single week.

    Biden’s shift on masking creates political risks, policy challenges

    More than 188,000 border crossers were taken into custody in June, the largest monthly total in 21 years. This month that figure is projected to be even higher, according to preliminary U.S. enforcement data. While most single adult migrants are returned to Mexico under Title 42, the majority of families are allowed to seek humanitarian protection under U.S. law. But the arrival of more parents and children — some testing positive for the coronavirus — has alarmed border authorities and angered communities hit hard by the pandemic.


    The growing volume of border apprehensions and releases has once more aggravated local officials in the Rio Grande Valley and Laredo, Tex., whose communities have been slammed by the pandemic. A rising number of pediatric coronavirus cases and hospitalizations has startled health officials.

    How about this bombshell. From the USG no less.

    The CDC just released in its Preventing Chronic Diseases Journal (July 2021 Volume 18, E66) a study with a large sample of Convid-19 hospitalizations (4.9 million admissions) from March 2020 – March 2021. The study concluded that comorbidities (two or more diseases or medical conditions) cause severe COVID-19 illness.

    ICU admissions were 46.2% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients. The volume of the patients hospitalized with comorbidities was 94.9%, with a death rate of 15.5%. So if you are healthy, there is little risk of hospitalization or even death.

    The risk of death while hospitalized was extremely low at 2.7% for patients with no comorbidities. The risk of death rises with each increment of conditions. Stratifying mortality rates for comorbidities for those with one condition, the rate is 5.2%, 2-5 conditions, the rate was 12.2%, 6-10 conditions were 18.7%, and over ten conditions were 21.6%. Below is a summary of the hospitalization data.

    The above is what I've always thought. I think I've had covid. I may have had it when I got the vaccine. I was starting to get sick, a couple of days before i got it, got it, and then got really sick! I mean really sick!

    I think if I'd gone to the hospital, I'd be dead!

    I saw a lung doc this week. I got sick, and asked my doc to do a chest xray. Something a little bigger than a quarter came up on my right lung. So then they did a catscan with contrast and sent me to a lung doc.

    Whatever this is, it's been around since I got sick with an upper respiratory infection in 2013. I've never had a biopsy, because I refused, and by the time I decided I would, another cat scan was done, and whatever it was, shrunk. Then I had a mammogram, and everything was clear, so I thought whatever this is, it isn't cancer.

    It's gotten larger, gotten smaller, disappeared, come back, gotten larger, etc. over the years.

    Finally the lung doc I was seeing stopped doing cat scans in 2018. Anyway, the lung doc I say said he'd be surprised if it was not cancer, and I said I'd be surprised if it was. He said there are other things it could be, that wax and wane, but he didn't say what, and I didn't ask him.

    Also I have a schoolteacher cousin, who said that covid vaccine can cause a mass.

    I know I was more healthy before I got the vaccine and got sick after.

    So, anyway, I'm not having a biopsy, because with my lung function, I'd end up with a chest tube, and I'm not having any chemo or radiation, because my immune system isn't great, and because I saw 5 persons I knew, some close personal friends, have lung ca and do chemo and radiation out the wazoo, and died.

    Anyway, I think I may have had covid back in April, and I may have had it again in July, the delta variant.

    But only God knows. All I know, is that doctors don't know everything!

    Anyway, supposed to have a pet scan, and will see if it lights up or not.

    I really think it won't!

    As a nurse, I never got the flu vaccine, unless my employer demanded!

    I worked in elderly care homes where I saw everyone get a flu vaccine, everyone got sick with the flu, and persons died in droves!

    After I caught the swine flu and survived it, I decided to get a flu shot, but didn't get it last year. I know one year, maybe 2019, I read that the flu vaccine didn't even work on what ever variant hit the USA!

    We may not have a literal Civil War, but this Country is going to split right in two.

    Governments can always make persons suffer for not doing what they want them to do, but persons always have a choice. If BLM, and Antifa, can riot and loot, other persons can always just engage in Civil Disobedience. Parents can always move out of State, out of a City, homeschool. Same for Faculty. Can quit job, leave, move.
    I know parents who would just take their kid out of public school.

    Here Canada we have no access to Johnson and Johnson's vaccine and the AstraZeneca vaccine is no longer available (it is only given as a
    second dose to those who chanced to get the first dose). So I missed my chance and either have to take Pfizer's or Moderna's products.
    Or I wait and hope that J & J is allowed, AZ is restored, or local Canadian products not based on the mRNA GMO concept are available.

    The J & J vaccine is a viral vector vaccine (like AZ and Sputnik V) but it is only distributed with a single dose. This is meant to save time and
    money but it also reduces its potency compared to the two dose vaccines. But research shows that the J & J vaccine is still substantially
    effective:

    https://www.jnj.com/positive-new-data-for-johnson-johnson-single-shot-covid-19-vaccine-on-activity-against-delta-variant-and-long-lasting-durability-of-response

    The AZ vaccine has been sabotaged by the Canadian regime. The stories about blood clots are pure BS. The mRNA vaccines have higher rates
    of blood clot incidents. And your chances of getting serious blood clots from Covid itself are astronomically higher. The Canadian regime is
    run by loons. These fcukers have not even approved the J & J vaccine. Only experimental and unproved mRNA GMO "vaccines" are allowed.

    Even though I'm against all of this (even the flu vax) I'm 100% pro choice because this is your health - your life. For me the biggest concern is that there is no real debate about this in MSM - they just follow the narrative which in many cases is not scientific at all. Perhaps I'm selfish, but if the majority of people in the world take the vaccine (looks like around 60% will), anti-vaxxers shouldn't present any threat to the vaccinated at all - if these vaccines are real vaccines.

    West Texas Shelter Shutters After Governor Bans Migrant Buses from Border

    EAGLE PASS, Texas — On Wednesday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued and executive order banning any non-law enforcement entity from transporting migrants on Texas highways due to COVID-19 concerns. The order, according to a source within CBP, has caused at least one nonprofit shelter in West Texas to halt taking in more migrants.

    The order is already having an impact on Mission Border Hope, which houses and coordinates transport away from the border. Shelter leaders told Border Patrol they can no longer accept migrants due to the order, according to a source within CBP.
    Executive Order No. GA-37 mandates the following;

    No person, other than a federal, state, or local law-enforcement official, shall provide ground transportation to a group of migrants who have been detained by CBP for crossing the border illegally or who would have been subject to expulsion under the Title 42 order.

    The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is directed to stop any vehicle upon reasonable suspicion of a violation of paragraph 1, and to reroute such a vehicle back to its point of origin or a port of entry if a violation is confirmed.

    DPS is authorized to impound a vehicle that is being used to transport migrants in violation of paragraph I, or that refuses to be rerouted in violation of paragraph 2.

    The source says the order will impact Border Patrol as well, warning that if shelters cannot accept migrants, direct releases onto city streets becomes the only option.

    The current border crisis has kept most Border Patrol stations and detention facilities in Texas at or over capacity due to the influx of single adult, family unit, and unaccompanied migrants. In Del Rio, hundreds of mostly Haitian, Venezuelan, and Cuban migrants enter the country daily. Border Patrol relies on Mission Border Hope to receive those migrants once processed and released.

    Texas Governor Orders State Police to Halt Migrant Buses amid COVID Outbreak
    Governor Greg Abbott (R) ordered Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) troopers to stop any ground transportation of migrants following an uptick in cases of COVID-19. The governor issued an executive order to stop the ground transportation of migrants who have been detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

    “The dramatic rise in unlawful border crossings has also led to a dramatic rise in COVID-19 cases among unlawful migrants who have made their way into our state, and we must do more to protect Texans from this virus and reduce the burden on our communities,” said Governor Abbott. “This Executive Order will reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure in our communities.”
    The move from the Texas governor comes as increasing numbers of migrants crossing the border are found to be infected with the coronavirus. It also follows an incident where a migrant family, released by U.S. Border Patrol officials in the Rio Grande Valley Sector, were found in a Whataburger restaurant exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, Breitbart Texas reported.

    Concerned customers called local police who investigated and learned the migrants had been released by Border Patrol “because they were sick with COVID-19,” the migrants told police.

    Abbott’s order directs the Texas DPS to “to stop any vehicle upon reasonable suspicion of such violation and reroute such vehicles back to its point of origin or a port of entry,” the governor’s office said in a written statement. DPS also has the authority to impound a vehicle that violates the Executive Order.”

    Governor Abbot’s executive order states:

    1. No person, other than a federal, state, or local law-enforcement official, shall provide ground transportation to a group of migrants who have been detained by CBP for crossing the border illegally or who would have been subject to expulsion under the Title 42 order.

    2. The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is directed to stop any vehicle upon reasonable suspicion of a violation of paragraph 1, and to
    reroute such a vehicle back to its point of origin or a port of entry if a violation is confirmed.

    3. DPS is authorized to impound a vehicle that is being used to transport migrants in violation of paragraph I, or that refuses to be rerouted in
    violation of paragraph 2.

    Earlier this week, Hidalgo County Judge Richard Cortez, a Democrat, criticized the Biden Administration regarding the release by CBP into his communities who are infected with COVID-19, Breitbart’s Ildefonso Ortiz and Brandon Darby reported.

    “We now face a potential crisis because of the federal policy of releasing infected migrants into our community, coupled with the state policy that prohibits us from implementing essential safety measures,” Cortez said in a written statement. “This is unacceptable.”
    Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Patrol Agent Brian Hastings also sounded the alarm last week regarding the number of migrants testing positive for COVID-19 and the subsequent infection of Border Patrol agents under his command, Breitbart reported. He said 40 agents tested positive for the virus so far this year. That number was later increased to 70 in a Fox News report.

    During the first two weeks in July, 135 migrants being detained tested positive for the coronavirus. This marks a 900 percent increase over the previous 14 months, Fox News stated. This is just in the Rio Grande Valley Sector.
