Beware: Progressive Candidates Don't Use a “P” Behind Their Names

Prior to this upcoming midterm election, and every election after, it is imperative for each of us, as voters with our respective political ideologies, to confirm that the candidates we intend to vote for actually support the same things we do.

FDA Sign

In the month of June alone, the FDA demonstrated its most extreme regulatory capture to date with its Vaccine and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee's (VRBPAC) approval for (1) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to vaccinate the final age cohort of six-month-old babies to five-year-old toddlers (6/14-15/22); and (2) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to reformulate Pfizer and Moderna original vaccines to accommodate current and future variants without clinical trials (6/28/22).

COVID-19 Testing Site in Downtown Davenport - February 1, 2022

History will eventually reveal all the malfeasance that allowed COVID-19 to be promulgated as a global lethal pandemic when the narratives in support of this over-exaggeration can no longer overcome the evidence against it.

Iowa Executive Department Emergency Declaration 2021

Canada's Prime minister Justin Trudeau, with the enthusiastic support of his assistant Deputy Minister/Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland, unlawfully invoked Canada's Emergency Powers after two weeks of uncontestedly peaceful protest by mostly Canadian truckers using their rigs to occupy the streets surrounding Ottawa’s parliament buildings.  Before Prime minister Trudeau's emergency declaration, local law enforcement and the protestors enjoyed a certain obvious camaraderie because truckers are as beloved as police officers and it was a chance to demonstrate their mutual loyalty, trust, and respect.

We Need You to Care Local QC Hospital Health Official Vaccination Appeal Dec 2021

Critical thinking and journalistic curiosity were woefully missing in the most recent COVID-19 press briefing hosted by county health workers and local hospital medical directors. In the six weeks since the last presser, a lot of information has come out in the independent media on how unvaccinated are documented in health systems. The devil's in the details, and how our local hospitals and county health officials conduct themselves relative to our local media inquiries has a major impact on how the Quad Cities populace perceives our collective and individual health status.

Where There's Risk, There Must be Choice

Most of us have stopped really civically engaging, convincing ourselves that voting for representatives is doing our part in the bottom-up governance that makes America so unique. We further justify our civic sloth by picking a political side and assuring ourselves that we were choosing representation that reflects our values and ideologies for governance. What a load of hooey!

Natural Immunity Best Hope for Ending COVID Pandemic

The CDC was sued under FOIA for all its documentation regarding people who have been infected with COVID-19 and recovered who are unvaxxed, all documentation relative to natural immunity in the COVID-19 recovered, all documentation relative to COVID-19 recovered people becoming reinfected and then transmitting to others. (https://www.icandecide.org/cdc-concedes-never-conducted-vaccinated-v-unvaccinated-study/)

The CDC responded that it had no such documentation and that it was not collecting data relative to any of the requested parameters. This means that the CDC's Director Rochelle Walensky committed perjury in her November 4 testimony before Congress that the CDC had reviewed 96 papers as part of their review submission to Congress, and determined that all COVID-19-recovered people should be vaccinated.
