When Will Consumers Balk at Surging Prices?

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

That’s the big question. Looking for signs of widespread push-back but not finding much. Consumers pay whatever.

One of the bizarre factors that has driven the current surge in inflation – the worst in 30 years per CPI-U, the worst in 40 years per CPI-W – has been the sudden and radical change in the inflationary mindset among consumers and businesses.

Frustrated That Omicron Fear Is Not Permeating American Psyche, White House Planning More COVID Mandates

from The Conservative Treehouse:

There has been a lot of chatter behind a Washington Post report about the White House planning to introduce new COVID travel and quarantine restrictions tomorrow (Thursday).  However, tuning out the noise – remember which agency of the Fourth Branch uses the Washington Post and things make sense.

The problem for the White House is the public reaction to the new COVID variant Omicron did not meet their expectations.

Top Doctor Paul Marik Sues Own Hospital to Effectively Treat COVID Patients

by Alex Newman, The New American:

Dr. Paul Marik, one of the most respected critical-care doctors in the world, was forced to sue his own hospital in order to be able to treat COVID patients with effective treatments and medications, he told The New American magazine’s Alex Newman in this episode of Conversations That Matter. He was using the MATH+ treatment protocol, which has been proven in randomized controlled trials to effectively treat COVID. But Sentara issued an order banning him from using it, instead forcing him to use the toxic, expensive Fauci-backed drug known as Remdesivir. “This is a drug that is completely ineffective, in fact it’s harmful,” he said, noting that the hospital gets a bonus for using the $3,000 drug instead of the cheaper and more effective medicines. The hospital lied in court, he added. Asked about the COVID injections, he said it was “criminal” to use them on children.

The COVID Vaccine Failure

by Jamaica Plain, American Thinker:

The CDC narrative on COVID is simply put: (1) the mask is your best defense, (2) COVID is a pandemic of the unvaccinated, and (3) vaccines are our only exit strategy. However, whenever their narrative falls apart, the emphasis shifts, cover-up lies become bolder, and dissenting science is censored.

According to CDC Director Rachel Walensky in a Twitter public service announcement, masks can help prevent the spread of COVID or flu or common cold by reducing your chance of infection by 80%. Yet eleven Randomized Controlled Trials (RCT), including a Danish RCT studying COVID, failed to show that masks prevent transmission of respiratory viruses. In two lawsuits the Ontario Nurses Association (ONA) won litigation against hospitals’ “vaccinate or mask” policy when RCT showed “scant evidence” that wearing masks reduced influenza transmission. Empirical evidence, including CDC’s own study, Oster’s U.S. schools data, and comparing states with and without mask mandates failed to show a benefit to masking on COVID case rates. Though not reported in the media, the “mask is your best defense” isn’t settled science — the WHO states that: “the use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality scientific evidence.” Despite exclusive pro-mask news, parents are protesting against governors and school boards mandating masking K-12 students.

Second US Omicron Case Is Vaccinated Adult Male Whose “Mild Symptoms” Have Fully Resolved

from ZeroHedge:

Update 10:55am: Here is another reason to be optimistic – not suicidal – by the news that the Omicron variant is spreading. As we, Ackman and Kolanovic, all said, the Omicron variant could be the best thing that happened to the pandemic as it is much more “mild” than Delta, and because it is much more transmissible could soon become the dominant version.

In a clip posted to Twitter by Charlie De Mar, Smollett’s cohorts in crime, the Nigerian Osundairo brothers were filmed on their way to meet Jussie Smollett on the night of the fake hate crime.

Video: Senior Cardiologist Warns Study Linking COVID Vaccines To Massive Increase In Heart Attacks Is Being Totally Ignored

by Paul Joseph Watson, Summit News:

“They’re not going to publish their findings because they are concerned about losing research money from the drug industry.”

A leading cardiologist in the UK has warned that a colleague of his is finding it impossible to get research published because it definitively links COVID vaccines to a massive increase in heart attacks.

Appearing on GB News, Dr. Aseem Malhotra related how he was contacted by a researcher from a prestigious British Institution who said that he had found concrete links between inflammation of coronary arteries and the experimental mRNA vaccines.


from SGT Report:

This is a SGT special report. Please spread it to the four winds. The mRNA vaccines are premeditated murder. Confirmed.

The Insanely Dark Story Behind “Poltergeist” and its Young Star Heather O’Rourke

from Vigilant Citizen:

The unexpected death of the child star Heather O’Rourke at age 12 cemented an urban legend that was circulating for years: The movie “Poltergeist” was cursed. However, the real cause of her death might be infinitely more disturbing: Hollywood depravity.

The 1982 movie Poltergeist is widely considered a horror classic whose influence still reverberates today. Indeed, if nobody wants to live anywhere near an ancient burial ground to this day, it is because of that movie.

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:

If you’re a stock market watcher you might want to invest in a neck brace if today’s whipsawing action is any gauge of what’s ahead.

Just this morning we warned our readers to buckle up for the unwinding of the massive stock market bubble that Fed Chair Powell has been feeding with his keys to an unlimited, electronic-money printing press and his zero-interest-rate policy.

As if on cue, the Dow Jones Industrial Average put on a firework display today, first zooming to an intra-day high of 35,004.64, then plunging to a low of 34,006.98. By the closing bell, the Dow was down 461.68.
