Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz stated that there was “a conscious decision” made with the distribution of coronavirus relief funds to undertake the unacceptable model that “we’re going to get the money out, and if there’s fraud, you’ll chase it later.”

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The government uses this stupid song and dance all the time. While they are distributing these funds, they are hiring additional US attorneys to prosecute. They typically charge a bunch of low level folks with felonies and let the big fish go. It is a pattern after every major disaster.

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

Growing Number of COVID-19 Deaths Among Vaccinated People: Reports

https://www.theepochtimes.com/...reports_4464399.html

An increasing number of COVID-19 deaths are occurring among individuals in the United States who have been vaccinated, according to federal data.

In August of 2021, roughly 18.9 percent of COVID-19 deaths happened among individuals who were vaccinated, an ABC News analysis of the data shows. Six months later in February 2022, that figure had risen to over 40 percent as the highly-transmissible Omicron variant made its way across the globe.

Similarly, in September 2021, just 1.1 percent of COVID-19 deaths occurred among Americans who had been fully vaccinated and boosted once. Five months later in February, that percentage had jumped to about 25 percent, according to ABC News.

A separate analysis of federal data by CNN shows that in the second half of September 2021—when the Delta variant was at its peak—less than a quarter of all COVID-19 deaths were among individuals who were vaccinated with at least two doses of the Moderna or Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA vaccines or a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. However, just months later in January and February as Omicron surged, that figure had jumped to 40 percent.

Some experts believe the increase in deaths among fully vaccinated people or “breakthrough infections” in those who have received all their shots is not overly concerning, saying it is because while more and more people become fully vaccinated, new variants emerge and vaccine protection begins to wane as fewer people continue to get booster shots.

“These data should not be interpreted as vaccines not working. In fact, these real-world analyses continue to reaffirm the incredible protection these vaccines afford especially when up to date with boosters,” said John Brownstein, an epidemiologist at Boston Children’s Hospital and an ABC News contributor.

Despite an increasing number of deaths among the vaccinated, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that vaccines are safe and effective. Data from the government agency says that overall, the risk of death from COVID-19 is roughly five times higher in unvaccinated individuals than in those who have had at least their initial dose of a vaccine.

However, in some cases, serious adverse events such as thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (blood clots), myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle), and pericarditis (inflammation of the outer lining of the heart) have been documented.

As of May 4, around 257.9 million people in the United States, or 77.7 percent of the total population in the nation have received at least one dose of vaccine, while roughly 219.9 million people, or 66.2 percent of the total U.S. population, have been fully vaccinated.

Around 100.9 million of those who are fully vaccinated have received a booster shot, while 49.4 percent of those eligible for booster shots have not yet had one.

As the Omicron variant swept through the nation, an increasing number of vulnerable, older populations were being hospitalized, and 73 percent of deaths have been among those 65 and older, despite the fact that 90 percent of seniors have had all of their vaccine shots.

However, a large percentage—a third of them—have not yet had their booster jab.

“This trend in increased risk among the elderly further supports the need for community-wide immunization,” Brownstein said. “Older populations, especially those with underlying conditions, continue to be at great risk of severe complications, especially as immunity wanes. The best way to protect them is to make sure everyone around them is fully immunized.”

The data comes a month after pharmaceutical and biotechnology company Moderna said that preliminary results from its study on a COVID-19 vaccine intended to protect against variants showed that it outperformed the company’s currently authorized booster shot, mRNA-1273.

Moderna said on April 19 that its mRNA-1273.211 shot, its first bivalent booster vaccine candidate, showed “superiority” against the Beta, Delta, and Omicron variants of the virus one month after being administered, compared to the booster shot of its original vaccine currently in use.

“How the COVID Tyrants Created a Cycle of Chronic Disease”.

If you’ve never read (or heard of) the book Oryx and Crake” by Margaret Atwood, the basic premise of the book was the world being essentially being taken over by business entities, replacing elected governments. The businesses essentially bleed everyone’s money dry until you die by making the population sick while selling treatments that don’t cure anyone, only treating symptoms and even creating illness with hidden pathogens in their “treatments”. The parallels to what is going on with the pharmaceutical industry is a bit unnerving. Especially with this bullshit “vaccine” business.

Thanks, gearhounds, that book is now on hold at the local library for me. A related non-fiction book that describes how vaccines are developed, tested, and approved is Plague of Corruption by Dr. Judy Mikovits. It's good for putting together how the entire system works and why.

He seems to do that every now and then.

He does appear to be the best of the bunch there at CNN, which is really just damning with faint praise I suppose.

Follow the science...

Nonprofit watchdog group Open the Books released a blockbuster report last week about undisclosed royalty payments paid to NIH scientists during the pandemic. National Review discussed the report in an article headlined, “Did Anthony Fauci & Francis Collins Receive Royalty Payments From Drug Companies?”

This is going to shock you. You better set the phone down. Apparently, and I am not making this up, NIH scientists — including ones that don’t actually do any research like Francis Collins and beagle-beater Tony Fauci — have figured out how to exploit a loophole in the law to accept bribes, sorry, I mean kickbacks, whoops, I mean totally legitimate above-board royalty payments, in the rare cases where they are “co-inventors” of a profitable product. Or just a product. Or just a study.

So it turns out the NIH scientists — including their bosses and administrators that don’t research or actually DO science — are all freaking brilliant, every one of them. It’s not just rare cases, not at all. They invent (co-invent) amazing new products ALL THE TIME! And without hardly any effort, apparently. These NIH brainiacs are inventing wizards. So it’s only fair that they earn hundreds of millions of dollars.

But the best part is where the royalty money comes from. You! Haha, you suckers. You fell for it again. Here’s what Open the Books says about the cash revolver they have over at the NIH:

Last year, the National Institutes of Health – Anthony Fauci’s employer – doled out $30 billion in government grants to roughly 56,000 recipients. … However, … we [also] found hundreds of millions of dollars in payments also flow the other way. These are royalty payments from third-party payers (think pharmaceutical companies) back to the NIH and individual NIH scientists … between fiscal years 2010 and 2020, more than $350 million in royalties were paid by third-parties to the agency and NIH scientists – who are credited as co-inventors.

See how it works? Imagine you’re a scientist. NIH gives you a giant grant. Then you take part of that grant money and you wash it off and then pay it back to NIH as a royalty. It’s so simple. And, how dare you suspect that anyone’s motives might not be pure as the liquid in that vaccine vial that I set down behind you while you weren’t looking.

Open the Books says during the pandemic, Fauci got TWENTY-THREE separate “royalty payments” and his boss, Collins, got fourteen. But guess what? The NIH refuses to disclose the AMOUNT of the royalties or WHO PAID THEM, citing “personal privacy” or something. Could the payors have included Pfizer or Moderna, for example? Could NIH scientists, including Fauci, be receiving co-inventor royalty payments for the COVID DRUGS?

The most transparent administration in history.

Chicago Approves Guaranteed Basic Income Pilot Project paid for with covid relief funds

https://iecam.illinois.edu/new...income-pilot-project

April 2022 update: Applications open on Monday, April 25 for the Chicago Resilient Communities Pilot, a guaranteed basic income program.

February 2022 update: The City of Chicago Department of Familiy and Support Services has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking proposals from agencies who can act as a lead agency to fulfill the outreach and recruitment function for the Chicago Resilient Communities Monthly Cash Assistance Pilot. The applications are due on February 18.

The Chicago City Council has passed a 2022 budget that includes a guaranteed basic income pilot program. This program will provide 5,000 Chicago households with $500 a month for a year. The program’s funding comes from $2 billion in COVID-19 relief money allocated to Chicago via the American Rescue Plan. This program, one of the nation’s largest, aims to relieve financial burdens on families hard-hit by COVID-19.

Read more about the pilot program in these articles from Business Insider, the Black Wall Street Times, and NPR/Illinois Public Media.

Learn more about research on guaranteed income from the Center for Guaranteed Income Research at the University of Pennsylvania.
