FDA May Grant Full Approval For Pfizer Jab As Early As September


The FDA is taking an "all-hands-on-deck" approach to review Pfizer's applicaiton for full approval "as rapidly as possible in keeping with the high-quality complete assessment that the public expects from the FDA."

As the Journal notes, full approval will ease restrictions on distribution and advertising, and will allow more states, schools and employers to force people to take the jab, according to attorneys and current/former FDA officials. Once full approval is granted, the vaccine would be eligible for prescriptions as booster doses by physicians.

According to a June Kaiser Family Foundation survey, over 30% of unvaccinated Americans would be more likely to get it if the FDA grants full approval.

"The vast difference in vaccination rates across the country tell a story about what the perceptions are about risk across the country," said Harvard University associate professor Joseph Allen, head of the university's Healthy Buildings program. "If you’re a company operating in all 50 states and even internationally, it’s hard for them to move on the vaccine mandate and having a full FDA approval and authorization would make that easier."

Pfizer says it initiated a rolling submission process in May, while Moderna did the same in June - allowing them to submit finished sections of their applications without having to wait for full completion.

"It’s like if you said not all the Christmas presents are under the tree, but you can start unwrapping them," said former FDA chief scientist, Dr. Jesse Goodman. Read More

A Trump Supporter Was Arrested After A Church Prayer Group Member Sent Texts To The FBI That Showed Him Inside The Capitol On January 6


The FBI arrested a California man after receiving a tip of his involvement in the January 6 Capitol riot from a member of a church prayer group. 

Glenn Allen Brooks "boasted of his active participation" in the riot and "sent photos of his attendance" to a text chat group full of church prayer members, a criminal complaint said. 

A member of the group — who was not identified in the complaint — provided that information to the FBI, leading to Brooks' arrest on Thursday. 

On the day of the riot, Brooks texted the group "a selfie photo of himself inside the Capitol," the complaint, dated July 27, said. Weeks later, the unnamed group member passed it along to officials investigating the insurrection. Read More

WHO Expert: Delta Variant Poses Stark Choice Between Behavior Change Or 'More Lockdowns'

The growing spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant is creating an increasingly stark choice that could make the difference between more reopenings — or a return to restrictions that decimated the world's economy, a World Health Organization expert suggested on Friday.

Amid the leak of internal documents from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), comparing the transmissibility of Delta variant to that of chickenpox, new discoveries are sparking furious debate about how vulnerable the vaccinated could be to transmitting COVID-19, should they get it. 

It also highlighted the struggles of public health officials to boost the mass vaccination effort, and encourage the voluntary use of masks in public.

Dr Bruce Aylward, senior adviser to the World Health Organization's Director General, suggested that Delta's spread is posing a challenge to relaxing restrictions that are feeding a rise in infections.

"More transmissible means more cases, more sick people, more hospitalizations, more ICU's filling up," he said. Aylward was responding to a question from Yahoo Finance about how to best communicate the seriousness of the virus to the public.  Read More

Local Government In Philippines Declares That Unvaccinated People Are Barred From Purchasing FOOD


Human rights abuses are accelerating worldwide, as governments claim dominion over people’s bodies and minds. In the Philippine city of Lapu-Lapu, Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan signed a terror-inspired executive order that bans the “unvaccinated” from department stores, convenience stores, supermarkets and grocery stores. Individuals who do not submit their body to the experimental covid-19 protocol will be excommunicated from society, starved out, segregated into perpetuity. This divide-and-conquer strategy uses terror and humiliation to achieve absolute compliance. Food and basic resources are now being used as weapons against humanity.

A new wave of Nuremberg trials are warranted, as governments repeatedly violate and mock informed consent and basic medical ethics. 

Mayor Chan’s executive order (No. 2021-040) lists numerous restrictions on the population until August 25. After that date, the general restrictions end for those who submitted to the initial vaccine requirements. The abuse will continue against the unvaccinated and will increase against the vaccinated, who will soon be required to obey again by getting booster shots. Anyone who doesn’t comply with the government’s vaccine threats will be segregated, socially ostracized, starved, restricted from living their lives. This abuse could go on into the foreseeable future because too many people are complying and too few are standing up to these tyrants.

Section 4 of Mayor Chan’s executive order states: “Effective August 25, 2021, only vaccinated persons, upon presentation of their vaccination cards, shall be allowed to enter public and private markets including department stores, supermarkets, grocery stores and convenience stores.” Read More
