that makes literally no sense and is 100% wrong. A bulk of the people dying now have been vaccinated as everybody dying is 65+ and 95% of them have been vaccanated.
Right...I have lost complete faith in Govt, law enforcement, media and medicine. I trust no one at any time. I am making decisions based on my own research and, often, anecdotal evidence. Sadly, this has been beneficial so far while I recognize the potential downside.

The USA, so very sad to say, is no better than dozens of nations around the Globe. Thank goodness most of those brave vets that saved democracy during WW2 and blunted the march of socialism in Korea are not here to see this. Sad Vietnam-era vets are having to live through it.

So anybody here about Covid Anxiety Syndrome (CAS). Definition below. So it appears to be a real thing and explains a lot of what this thread has discussed with people still wearing masks and the constant barrage of articles that continue to fear monger. Interestingly enough, my brother-in-law, who is a successful dermatologist, basically admits he has this. He is coming up for Thanksgiving which will be the first family outing he has attended since Covid.

CAS is characterized by severe post-lockdown anxiety and fear of reintegrating back into “normal” life surrounded by people in public spaces. For example, the idea of riding public transportation may cause enough of a concern that the activity is avoided altogether.

Other signs of Covid Anxiety Syndrome include:


  • Inability to leave home due to fear of contracting COVID-19
  • Obsessive cleaning
  • Repeated hand washing
  • Continuously checking for coronavirus symptoms
  • Avoiding places with people or social gatherings

I am doing the same. As it turned out, many of the amateur epidemiologists who post on this board presented more accurate information than the so-called "experts" because they didn't have an agenda and weren't corrupt.

It's take a lot of hutzpah for these governmental creeps to keep pushing falsehoods down our throats when the gig was up a long time ago. They truly are shameless.

Dr Campbell; COVID was present in Italy, September 2019.

I had it in December 2019 (my opinion) and I wound up in the ER on Dec. 31st. My cardiologist here in State College also had it (also, his opinion) in December 2019.

September seems really early. From what I have heard, they think that is basically when it most likely was leaked from the Wuhan lab and started to circulate from patient zero in Wuhan. So if in Italy in September, then you would have needed basically somebody in Wuhan who was one of the first people to contract it traveling to Italy.
No doubt though that by December Covid was in circulation pretty much around the world as we know how contagious it is/was.

I find Dr Campbell to be an honest broker when it comes to COVID. Not too high, not too low and absolutely no agenda. If his reporting is correct, the virus appeared in more than 100 blood samples from September.

From what I’ve read, this virus almost certainly was around in the fall of 2019 and infecting people in this country.

Just Google “Was COVID in US in fall 2019” and you will see several articles that state this; most of them say that it most likely was here by December 2019, but there’s one that says that it could have been here as early as September 2019.

apparently, the claim is "if you get your vaccine, you won't die"

"Prevent every COVID death"....yet somehow, there have been more deaths since the vaccine was released than before.

At this point It's something like 97% of seniors are vaxxed and it's pretty much only seniors that are succumbing to COVID. That means that pretty much everyone dying is vaccinated. Lord knows what the "covid czar" is talking about.

Biden’s COVID ‘czar’ declared Tuesday during a White House press briefing that “God gave you two arms” so we can all be injected with different vaccines.

Dr. Ashish Jha made the statement while simultaneously pushing COVID booster shots and flu shots as if they are the same thing.

Would you expect anything else from a member of this current administration, which is made up of the most incompetent people from top to bottom? Even if you were trying to parody an administration, you couldn't exceed what is reality.

I have watched many of his videos and agree he is excellent. Just thinking September in Italy is really early. You basically would have required an infected person from Wuhan to goto Italy in mid September. As for 100 samples to be positive, that probably takes a week of spread from ground zero to get there. Just timing seems really fast. If he said October, would make more sense to me.

I've shared posts from a pediatrician friend of mine on here a few times. Here is his latest. Doctors need to be held accountable. To have your head in the sand this much is downright scary.

Here's his post.


I have a true story which highlights this very thing, relayed to me just yesterday, by a 75 year old gentleman who accompanied his grandchildren to their appointments. He is a very fit, energetic elderly man, with a history of well-controlled diabetes. Appropriately, his physician recommended the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine of Pfizer, for he was considered at risk. He received the initial two dose series in early 2021. When the first boosters came out, his physician advised that he receive that also, and he complied, getting it in September of 2021. Between one to two weeks after the booster, he developed atrial fibrillation, which resolved after one round. He has no prior history of heart problems.

Then, our gentleman contracted Covid-19 disease in November of 2021, within 8 weeks of his first booster (third shot). That would have been the delta variant. He did well clinically; just one to two days of fatigue and achiness. He now had hybrid immunity, and continued to do well clinically.

When the recommendation for a second booster came out, this time with the recently approved bivalent mRNA vaccine, his physician again strongly recommended it. This 75 year old man, who already had three mRNA vaccines, who developed a known serious complication from the third dose, who had already done well clinically with the disease that he is to be protected from, without cardiac complications, was being told by his trusted (formerly) physician of many years to get a new mRNA vaccine that had NEVER been trialed in humans! Our friend was wary, but he is a good patient; always compliant. He got the booster in October of this year...and within 24 hours was back in Afib, and has had recurring bouts, often associated with chest pain, at least twice a week, ever since.

Wow! I wish I could say that I was as calm inside hearing his story as this kind man was in telling it, but that would be a lie. How is this thought process rational? How is it not malpractice? Where is Occam's Razor? If we follow the guideline of basing decisions on evidence and known fact, we would have stated that 1) the mRNA vaccines did not prevent infection with Covid-19 in this patient; 2) the first booster very likely caused a serious cardiac side effect in this patient, which had, thankfully, resolved; 3) the disease itself had already been contracted and resolved...without complications; and 4) this patient now had hybrid immunity going forward, and that element of natural immunity will ensure long-term protection from severe disease and death. All of these statements are supportable.

But no...this JERK of a physician (and I'm not apologizing; I take this stuff personally), knowingly rejected all of these true assumptions to adhere to the ONLY assumption he'll ever have regarding all things Covid: The FDA and CDC authorizations and guidance are all that matter. No need to think independently. The mRNA boosters are essential in the vulnerable; there are no exceptions.

And that mindset is an anathema to everything my profession should be about. This kind, sincere man was hurt by his doctor. And it gets even worse. The man went to the pharmacy where he got his booster shots, and told them what happened, and simply asked that they report these side effects to the CDC's reporting system, VAERS. They refused, saying that it was the physician's responsibility. So, he asked his physician, who said that there was no proof that the vaccines were involved at all; the patient is elderly, he has diabetes, and he had Covid-19 infection. Atrial fibrillation is common in patients like him. He did not report it, which makes one wonder just how very underreported the VAERS system is.
This closely mirrors my life situation, being a Health professional ( Dentist ), neither of my two cardiologists local and at major teaching Hospital would comment on this possibility.

I happened to be in Northern Italy for about 10 days in September 2019 with my wife. We spent the last couple of days of our trip in Venice, and I remember a large cruise ship there with a lot of Chinese tourists on it. Venice was full of Asian folks during that timeframe. My wife and I never got sick during or immediately after that trip, but it always made me wonder if one of the sources of the initial COVID outbreak in Italy came from that ship.

italy got hit hard because A) many of the top designers in Milan are owned by Chinese companies B) Chinese love designer stuff. So tons of Chinese got to Italy, load up on stuff, and take it home. Italy was hit with COVID before they even knew what happened and this is what led to the Admin baring direct flights from China in Feb of 2019

That thinking is pretty easy to prove wrong.

Looking at equal lengths of time, from the end of March 2020 to the end of March 2021, and from the end of March 2021 to the end of March 2022 you had ~575k deaths and ~31 million cases compared to ~425k deaths and ~50 million cases or less than HALF the death rate at 1.85% compared to 0.85%.

March 2021 is a reasonable point to end/start, it allows for a two-dose vaccine to get into a reasonable number of the population, 15% were fully vaccinated by the end of March.

The initial breakout was on the Northwest coast so it's unlikely to be that ship.

I had a coworker that travelled out west for Christmas/New Year's 2019/2020 that flew in and out of Seattle on his way to Vancouver Canada and he came back with that Covid wheezing cough in early January 2020 and missed a week of work from it. It makes sense to me that he could have contacted Covid then with the number of Chinese living in those cities along with the airport having a lot of Chinese passengers transiting it. I got sick in Mid-March 2020 with a similar cough and while not confirmed I believe it could have been an early case of Covid before it became all the rage.

Yep, crazy times. My wife was in Prague the last weekend of February and scheduled to fly to Turin in Northwest Italy on Sunday March 1st. My son and I were in Clearwater Fl attending Phillies pre-season games. One of my daughters was in Disney World for that week and the other daughter was in Cancun the same week (it was Penn State's spring break so my two girls were off having fun). None of us came back with any symptoms.

My wife had previously changed her schedule to spend an extra day in Prague else she would have been at ground zero in Italy when they shut down everything.

This is also how Italy obtained spaghetti from Chinese.

How does a study show that 50% of big 10 athletes have myocarditis AND the MSM doesn't report on that? If this guy is correct and 50% of D1 college level athletes in the prime of their lives and elite conditioning have myocarditis then that is explosive news and we all should have heard about it.
Its been said here many times that myocarditis is a major issue with exposure to Covid 19. A lot of people make fun of covid as no worse than the common cold but dismiss this finding or blame the vaccine. Its not a surprising finding but the incidence is much higher than reported as it does not always manifest into clinical symptoms.

This RSNA Press Release is as mainstream as it gets, and altho I'd like to say that I have no idea why this is ignored, I suspect independent thinkers have a strong hunch; money talks. The question is are our kids at a medical risk? Even if it's a small chance, this has to investigated.

FFS people.....you really need to read slower and understand what you're reading, 50% of B1G athletes DON'T have myocarditis, the study says that 20 of 1579 or 54% of those with myocarditis (37) were without symptoms.

From the release..... "Thirty-seven of the athletes, or 2.3%, were diagnosed with COVID-19 myocarditis, a percentage on par with the incidence of myocarditis in the general population"

edit: You guys post this nonsense to suggest that vaccines are causing this, you apparently missed that the entire study group had covid.

Stop embarrassing yourselves.

When will the madness stop?


Pfizer is asking U.S. regulators to authorize its updated COVID-19 vaccine for children under age 5 — not as a booster but part of their initial shots.

Children ages 6 months through 4 years already are supposed to get three extra-small doses of the original Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine — each a tenth of the amount adults receive — as their primary series. If the Food and Drug Administration agrees, a dose of Pfizer’s bivalent omicron-targeting vaccine would be substituted for their third shot.

Pfizer and its partner BioNTech said Monday that may help prevent severe illness and hospitalization from COVID-19 in little kids, at a time when children’s hospitals already are packed with youngsters hit by other respiratory illnesses.

So i heard Marty McCary John's Hopkins say today we still can't get a good number of how many of these young kids have dies from Covid. he said when the Germans did an analysis the number was ZERO. He also said the hospitals are full of people with viruses but far and away the most are flu and RSV. In fact to quote him he said the hospitals are very crowded right now but NOT with Covid and I don't know why they keep including Covid in the data.

yeah, Robert Kennedy is a bit of a nutcase.
Hey Cletus,
I don't come to this thread nearly as often as my daily "must read" from a year ago. What's the latest on what variant we are dealing with? Still the same one from 6-9 months ago. If there is a new one do we have data on more or less serious than the last one?
