Good morning, C&C, it’s Thursday! Welcome to your roundup: Supermodel dies from what looks like turbo-cancer; Project Veritas chases jumpy Pfizer exec; damning Facebook email emerges from Missouri v. Biden; Joe Biden’s classified document problem just got a lot worse; and fake scientist Neil De Grasse Tyson is still pushing for jab mandates.
🗞*WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
💉 1990’s supermodel Tatjana Patitz, 57, kicked the bucket with high heels yesterday, from sudden-onset metastatic breast cancer. Tatjana was one of the ‘original’ supermodels, and often posed with Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford.
According to online comments, Tatjana’s Instagram never mentioned anything about cancer, suggesting it came on suddenly. None of the media reports provide any details about her diagnosis or death.
Just shut up. You can’t prove the jabs killed her. You can’t prove the jabs killed her because you don’t have any evidence. You don’t have any evidence because they won’t give any to you. And, how dare you ask about her private medical information. What do you think this is? A restaurant hostess stand?
Tatjana is now walking the runways of the Great Beyond. Safe travels.
🔥 This week, Project Veritas briefly caught up with Vanessa Gelman, Pfizer’s Senior Director of Worldwide Research, who is alleged to have ordered the firm to conceal information about fetal tissue in the covid shots. That information could have been useful to a lot of people who were seeking religious exemptions, but got pushback from their bosses who cited fake CDC propaganda saying no aborted cell lines were used in the vaccines.
Anyway, when questioned by a PV reporter, Ms. Gelman bravely fled. Or maybe she was just getting some exercise. I’ll let you decide.
Senior Director of Worldwide Research @pfizer Vanessa Gelman was responsible for the order to suppress this information… Safe to say she wanted to avoid any questions from Project Veritas… #PfizerFiles
Someone should let Ms. Gelman know that, these days, jogging is a risk indicator for SADS. Slow down, Gelman. Take it easy.
💉 I checked in on Justin Bieber to see how he’s managing with his sudden and unexpected Ramsay Hunt diagnosis. He’s made some public appearances and he’s been busy on social media. Here’s a recent celebrity snap of Bieber on a date with his wife / stroke survivor Hailey Bieber.
Nice hat. I never considered the right-off-the-couch crocheted-blanket look, but maybe I ought to give it a try. I also found that Bieber has quietly been removed from the 2023 Coachella concert lineup for April 14th and 21st:
A report on iHeart.com claimed that Bieber never actually agreed to perform at the desert concert, and he turned the job down to focus on his new album. So. Opinions vary.
Anyway, it’s nice to see he’s making the best of it. Too bad there’s nobody he can sue.
💉 On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal ran a quiet little story headlined, “Moderna Considers Price of $110-$130 for Covid-19 Vaccine.” The sub-headline explained, “Commercial price is similar to Pfizer’s plans for after government contracting ends.”
Both drugmakers have now announced plans to increase the jab price from the government’s wholesale rate of about $30 per shot to around $130 at retail. That’s created nifty opportunities for political grandstanding about greed and selfishness et cetera, but the real news is the price increases signal the end of free government jabs.
In other words, it’s not about the price increasing by $100. The real story is the soon, the jabs aren’t going to be free. In other words, the market is going to start voting on the jabs. I wonder how the market will vote?
The Journal reported sales of Moderna’s vaccine are expected to decline. Monday, the company projected vaccine sales of about $5 billion for 2023, compared to about $18.4 billion in sales in 2022. That’s a 70% reduction in income, even at the higher jab price.
Um. So the $5 billion projection is based on a sale price four times higher than in 2022. Which means they’re projecting even fewer shot sales than it looks. FOR SOME REASON Moderna thinks it’s going to sell less than one-eighth the number of jabs in 2023 as it did last year. Even with the covid-Kraken rampaging across the country.
Since they’ll have to start paying, we’ll soon find out who the really committed jabbers are. Sure, insurance will probably cover most of the shot cost, but these days everybody has a significant co-payment, so some out-of-pocket expense seems likely. Who among us will keep paying?
Not me. I haven’t bought any. Even the free shots. I didn’t even go for the free donut offer.
🔥 Bless that Missouri attorney general. The disclosures from the Missouri v. Biden case are confirming what we all knew was going on, but couldn’t prove. The latest tidbit to be flipped out of the chum bucket is a pivotal March 21st, 2021 email from a Facebook staffer to Andy Slavitt, the White House Covid Coordinator. Heeeeeere’s Andy:
And here is the damning email that proves Missouri’s entire case:
Here’s the crucial bit that I highlighted above:
[W]e have been focused on reducing the virality of content discouraging vaccines that does not contain actionable misinformation. This is often-true content, which we allow at the post level because experts have advised us that it is important for people to be able to discuss both their personal experiences and concerns about the vaccine, but it can be framed as sensation, alarmist, or shocking. We’ll remove these Groups, Pages, and Accounts when they are disproportionately promoting this sensationalized content. More on this front as we proceed to implement.
Often true! This email is a key bit of evidence proving several key facts, if not the entire case against the federal government. You could even call it a “smoking gun.” Why?
First, the email proves that Facebook’s motive was not really to stop “misinformation” from hurting people, but rather it was always intended to help promote the government’s hyper-aggressive vaccine program.
In his email, the staffer expressly admitted that Facebook was not just censoring “misinformation” to keep people safe, but was also censoring TRUE factual information that Facebook couldn’t find any way to label as mis-information. Like when somebody posted, “Seven hours after taking the second jab, my aunt died of a massive stroke.” That’s a fact.
That fact about the poster’s aunt falls into the “often true” category. It’s not misinformation. But it’s “shocking” and more importantly, it might cause some “vaccine hesitancy,” which is what the title of that paragraph called the whole project. They were “tackling vaccine hesitancy.”
Tackling vaccine hesitancy is not part of Facebook’s social media mission. That was the government’s depopulation mission. Sorry, sorry, I meant, “public health mission.”
Next, the staffer specifically proved at least one of the technical mechanisms of censorship, and helpfully admitted that people’s free speech rights were harmed — even putting a number on it. That admission proves DAMAGES. He said:
Additional limitations we placed in April 2020 on forwarding of messages that have been forwarded many times reduced these kinds of messages by over 70%.
It’s worded a little obtusely, but what he’s saying is that they put the digital brakes on any message that got forwarded a lot and was critical of the vaccines. And it worked! In coordination with the White House, Facebook frustrated most (“over 70%”) of the forwarders. I remember all this very well. During this timeframe, when Facebook was C&C’s primary platform, commenters often complained that (a) they didn’t get the daily posts in their feed, and (b) they were blocked from forwarding or re-posting the daily roundups.
Next, the email proves COORDINATION between the government and the private actor, Facebook. In the email’s second-to-last sentence, the Facebook staffer called the previous list “these commitments.” If, as corporate media apologists suggest, Facebook was just detailing some of its totally private preferences, why call them “commitments?” Commitment to whom? Why commitments?
A commitment is something you make to someone that you are working with as part of an agreement, contract, or collusion.
Next, the very last sentence, promising “More on this front as we proceed to implement,” proves the White House was coordinating censorship with Facebook. In other words, if Facebook were just letting the White House know what its own preferences were, as a completely private actor, there would be no need to keep the government posted on the how the implementation was proceeding.
Finally, look at this delicious sentence that also proves coordination, the sentence with which the whole email begins:
Thanks for taking the time to connect on Friday. Per our discussion, I wanted to follow up with next steps:
“Next STEPS!” Steps are what you take when you are walking out a PLAN. A plan to move toward a goal. A plan is an agreement between two or more parties to take some particular action. This email alone proves the White House was involved in massive civil rights violations.
Facebook’s stealth censorship ultimately escalated to 3-day and 7-day virtual jail terms, which prompted C&C’s packing up and moving to Medium.com, where we got summarily canceled, and finally restarted on Substack. And so here we are.
Andy Slavitt was probably smart enough to know not to put any of his own preferences and directives in writing. But the Facebook staff aren’t familiar with public records laws and how to evade them like politicians. So the Facebook team sometimes forgot, and wrote what they really meant, instead of using plausibly-deniable political doublespeak.
This is why politicians disdain tech people and scientific experts, who consider themselves to be smarter than politicians. Politicians see these kinds of emails and think the tech/science experts are blockheaded morons who are slow-walking to their own destruction.
It’s hard to argue with that.
There’s a word for this kind of government control of big private companies. I can’t remember the exact word, it starts with an ‘f’, and Mussolini really loved it. Fash-something.
At some point, I’m planning a long-form essay about what all this coordinated censorship means, from a legal standpoint. Would that be helpful?
🔥 Yesterday, government-apologist CNN ran a helpful infographic explaining the difference between Trump and Biden’s classified documents problems:
Alert commenters instantly pointed out another critical difference that CNN somehow neglected to include, the fact that Trump held the power to declassify — and Biden didn’t. So. I also think it’s hilarious that CNN believes the NUMBER of classified documents is important somehow, rather than how sensitive they are.
Like, if Biden stole a classified document with the nuclear codes and left it lying around his abandoned office, wouldn’t that be worse than ten documents detailing how many Krugerrands we shipped to Iran? Or twenty documents counting how many unidentified flying saucers were reported over Newport, Rhode Island in 1975?
But even before I could mock them properly, right after CNN’s goofy attempt to defend the former vice-president, Reuters ran an electrifying story yesterday headlined, “Biden Aides Find Second Batch of Classified Documents at New Location, Reports Say.”
Oof! Say it isn’t so! How many offices did Biden leave classified document lying around in?
NBC News broke the story, reporting that some unnamed “Biden aides” just found an undisclosed number of MORE classified documents at a DIFFERENT unidentified think tank office in Washington DC. And that’s not all we don’t know:
The NBC News report said the classification level, number and precise location of the additional documents was not immediately clear. It also said it was not clear when the additional documents were discovered and whether the search for any other classified materials Biden may have from his time as vice president is complete.
There’s a lot going on these days that is not immediately clear.
Also yesterday, the Senate Intelligence Committee requested a damage assessment from the intelligence community, and a briefing on the retention of classified documents by both Biden and President Trump. On Tuesday the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence delivered a similar request to the agencies.
Gosh. It’s getting harder and harder to complain about President Trump, which is the greatest tragedy, of course.
When will we see the media-staged invasion of the White House by a team of 30+ FBI agents? Or Biden’s Delaware house? Or his beach place? Or his other murky offices? Inquiring minds are curious. We can’t have that kind of sensitive stuff lying around. The bad guys are also looking for it now.
It’s a national security issue.
🔥 This week, Patrick Bet-David interviewed liberal darling and ‘mainstream’ science expert Neil De Grasse Tyson, if that’s his real name, who took over from bowtie Bill Nye after Nye’s utter lack of credentials became well known. Credentials apart from looking nerdy, that is. Anyway, the alleged-genius Neil is still crying about jab mandates. He wants them to protect “others,” because of some kind of marxist “social contract.” I especially enjoyed the clip’s last moment, where Neil tried to wave off the failure of the jabs to stop transmission.
(For another laugh, google “fake tv scientist,” and then search for the same phrase using DuckDuckGo. Then tell me in the comments how honest Google is.)
Have a terrific Thursday everybody! I’ll be back here tomorrow as usual with a brand new roundup.
C&C is moving the needle and changing minds. If you can, I could use your help getting the truth out and spreading optimism and hope: https://www.coffeeandcovid.com/p/-learn-how-to-get-involved-
