Several years ago, in speaking with a friend who was an official of South Korea’s conservative, pro‑U.S. political party, then called the “Liberty Korea Party” and now known as the “People Power Party,” I was gently informed that as an American, I would not be able to fully comprehend the problems faced by Korean conservatives in their struggles with their leftist opponents. Seeking to satisfy my curiosity, I nevertheless pressed my friend to disclose to me the nature of these difficulties faced by his party and by Korean conservatives more broadly. It was the reply which I received that forever changed my badly mistaken impression that Korean politics was something totally alien and perhaps even incomprehensible to me and my fellow Americans.My Korean friend and conservative party official frankly explained to me that the problems plaguing him and his fellow conservatives in Korea, which resulted in very substantial electoral advantages to Korean leftists, and which I, as an American, would probably not be familiar with and therefore unable to easily comprehend and relate to, were as follows:1. The problem of left-wing bias in much of the so-called “mainstream” Korean media, which often slanted coverage against conservatives, and which was even a problem infecting some supposedly conservative- …

Are There Really So Many Millionaires Who Want to Pay More Taxes?

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.

Every year, a few vocal multimillionaires and billionaires publicly announce that there is nothing they would like more than to finally pay more taxes. Every such announcement attracts a great deal of media attention. After all, there is one rule journalists learn very early in their careers: “Dog bites postman is not a story, postman bites dog is.” This is a typical “postman bites dog” news story. Over the last few days, the media was again awash with reports that a group of more than 100 millionaires from nine countries have called on governments to make them pay more taxes. “Tax us, the rich, and tax us now,” pleaded the groups Patriotic Millionaires, Millionaires for Humanity and Tax Me Now, according to the left-wing organization Oxfam. For many years, I earned a decent amount as an entrepreneur and real estate investor in Germany, but my tax burden from my entrepreneurial activities was almost 50 percent every year. I also don’t evade taxes and don’t ‘cheat’ the system, although that is precisely what many people claim the rich are doing across the board. Yet not a single study has ever proved that tax evasion is more common among the rich than among the non-rich. What really annoys me are multimillionaires who themselves take excessive advantage of a host of tax planning arrangements and then publicly announce that they would like to pay more taxes. I know hundreds of multimil …

COVID 2: The Omicron Enigma

While that title sounds like a Robert Ludlum novel, it’s actually the confusion I encountered just before and after I recovered last week from my second round of COVID. My first fight with delta – which I wrote about here 3 months ago – was much more serious, affecting my lungs and requiring the monoclonal antibody infusion, when Regeneron still worked for COVID. Omicron, on the other hand, was a super-mild cold that lasted 3 days. But the real kicker was how little doctors, pharmacists, and other medical professionals understood about the booster, immunity, and testing when it comes to the latest, raging, contagious variant. When I first recovered from delta (with issues that I’m still dealing with everyday thanks to lung damage from Iraq from toxic exposure to burn pits), I read multiple medical journals. From what I gathered, I had natural immunity for 9 to 15 months, with conservative estimates at 6 months. I thought the same thing applied to my kids, who contracted delta from me. And while I’d been vaccinated last March with Moderna, I couldn’t get the booster until 90 days after …

Vaccines vs. Living a Healthy Life

A new Israeli study involving 270 vaccinated medical workers showed that even a fourth shot, a second booster, is not very effective in stopping covid infections. According to Dr. Gili Regev-Yochay, the director of the group leading the study, “Despite increased antibody levels, the fourth vaccine only offers a partial defense against the virus.”Similar data regarding vaccine limitations is also available in the United Kingdom. A recent report from their Health Security Agency reviewed hospitalizations from December 20, 2021through January 16, 2022. In that period, only 26% of those COVID-19 patients, 18 years of age and older, were unvaccinated. In addition, among the remaining 74% of hospitalized patients, most were “triple vaccinated.”With vaccines offering only a “partial defense” against the virus and millions of people in this country and globally are still becoming infected, what is the answer? If the virus is everywhere, swirling around in the air and inhabiting the mouths and noses of people worldwide, how can any individual be protected from its consequences?One potential answer for people is to eat right, exercise and live a healthy lifestyle. People should make healthy decisions and take care of their bodies, enjoy the great outdoors, and get plenty of sunlight. These old-fashioned health recommendations are as applicable during this pandemic as ever.Multiple studies have identified a connection between obesity and COVID-19. Overweight individuals are more susceptible to harmful effects of the virus and the lingering impact of …

More Media Gaslighting As Their Covid Narrative Falls Apart In South Africa

Last week, China Daily published an article that perfectly encapsulates the magical thinking taking place worldwide around Covid-19 vaccines. Titled “Plea for jabs even as Africa infections trend lower,” the piece described how African “health experts” are “stepping up calls for more people to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in a bid to ward off future outbreaks even as trends point to a decline in the growth rate for new infections.”That’s right, despite a clear downward trend in mostly-mild OMICRON cases, “health experts” want MORE “jabs.” And adding even more to the cognitive dissonance here are the reasons they cite for the decrease:“John Nkengasong, director of the Africa CDC, attributed South Africa’s decrease in new infection cases to increased population levels of antibodies, meaning that many people have been infected so hence developed antibodies combined with the high vaccination rate in the country.” wrote Edith Mutethya before adding the kicker: “To date, South Africa has fully vaccinated 27.3 percent of its population.”This is, of course, a perfect example of how ‘health officials’ massage and manipulate the facts to suit their narrative. In this case, in his drive to get more “jabs,” Nkengasong laughably tells us the country’s “high vaccination rate” is partially responsible for the decline in OMICRON cases. A “high v …

COVID, Fear, and Demons

Is there something to COVID-19 that is beyond physical? Is there an additional assault on the mind and emotions, producing an inordinate fear of death?There is no question that many people with COVID have struggled with fears of dying, even if their symptoms were mild. That has been documented by the medical profession as well as confirmed anecdotally.That’s why I asked on Instagram, “Did you personally get COVID? If so, was it entirely physical, or did you experience any emotional or spiritual attacks (such as, ‘You’re going to die’ or ‘You’ll never get back to normal’)?” Responses included: Physical, emotional, and spiritual. Unlike any flu I’ve ever had.Physical and spiritual. The dreams I had were evil.Suffer some physical but definitely there was a lot of emotional/spiritual attack!Very spiritual. Our family felt an assault of darkness attached to the virus.It may only be a small minority of COVID-sufferers who experienced this (as suggested by my Twitter survey) But the question remains, why?Looking at natural rather than supernatural explanations, the first and most obvious consideration is this: We hear about COVID-related deaths day and night. We read and see the constant flood of bad news and are exposed to gut-wrenching, painful stories. And many of us have lost friends or family members …

As the Russia – Ukraine Tension Rises, China Sends 39 Aircraft Over Taiwan’s Air Defense Zone

As the friction between Russia and Ukraine rises, China now has sent more planes over Taiwan’s airspace than at any time since October. 

In November China sent 27 planes over Taiwan air defense zone.  Episodes like this had been escalating this Joe Biden took over the White House.

China Does It Again – Sends 27 Aircraft Into Taiwan’s Air Defense Zone

Then in December, China threatened the US and said that if the US got into a battle between them and Taiwan, the US would be punished.  China claimed that it had no problems attacking any US troops that got in the way of any skirmish with Taiwan.

China Threatens It Will Attack Any US Troops Attempting to Protect Taiwan if a War Starts with the Tiny Island Country

Now with tensions mounting between Russia and Ukraine, China has upped its harassment of Taiwan.  Newsmax is reporting that China sent a number of planes over Taiwan’s air space again.

Taiwan on Sunday reported the largest incursion since October by China’s air force in its air defense zone, with the island’s defense ministry saying Taiwanese fighters scrambled to warn away 39 aircraft in the latest uptick in tensions.

Taiwan, which China claims as its own territory, has complained for more than a year of repeated missions by China’s air force near the democratically governed island, often in the southwestern part of its air defense identification zone, or ADIZ, close to the Taiwan-controlled Pratas Islands.

Taiwan calls China’s repeated nearby military activities “grey zone” warfare, designed to both wear out Taiwan’s forces by making them repeatedly scramble, and also to test Taiwan’s responses.

The latest Chinese mission included 34 fighters plus four electronic warfare aircraft and a single bomber, the Taiwan ministry said.

The aircraft flew in an area to the northeast of the Pratas, according to a map the ministry provided.

Taiwan sent combat aircraft to warn away the Chinese aircraft, while missile systems were deployed to monitor them, the ministry said.

CDC Is Monitoring Local Residents for Cold-like Symptoms Following Crash of Semi Carrying 100 CDC Test Monkeys

A truck and trailer carrying about 100 monkeys collided with a dump truck Friday afternoon along Route 54 just off Interstate 80 near Danville, Pennsylvania.

Three monkeys escaped the crash. The monkeys were later reportedly “humanely euthanized.”

The CDC is now monitoring local residents for cold-like symptoms.
That’s very comforting considering the lab leak from Wuhan that just destroyed the global economy.

The monkeys are originally from Mauritius off the African coast.

WNEP reported:

According to a CDC spokesperson, the monkeys were en route to a CDC-approved quarantine facility after landing Friday morning in New York. They are originally from Mauritius, a country in eastern Africa.

The crash happened around 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoon, that’s when the three monkeys got free in the Danville area.

Police say the driver who was transporting the monkeys was charged in the crash.

Originally, state police told us four monkeys were on the loose.

As of Saturday afternoon, some people were still worried.

“Little monkeys, we got bears, we have coyotes, we have deer, you know all the time. A little 3-pound monkey doesn’t scare me, but why are they so concerned about it is what concerns me,” said Howie Lerch, Valley Township.

Friday night Newswatch 16 spoke with Michelle Fallon of Danville, who saw the entire accident. She jumped into action; helping both drivers and the loads they were carrying.

“I walk up back on the hill and this guy tells me, ‘Oh, he’s hauling cats. I said, ‘oh.’ So I go over to look in the crate and there’s this green cloth over it. So I peel it back, I stick my finger in there and go ‘kitty, kitty.’ It pops its head up and it’s a monkey,” Fallon said.

Fallon was contacted Saturday by the CDC and was told to monitor herself for any cold-like symptoms.

FALLING APART: Latest Health Data From Scotland Mirrors the UK – Unvaccinated Have Lower Covid-19 Case, Hospitalization, AND DEATH RATES Than the ‘Fully Vaxxed’

The latest public health data published by the Scottish Government reveals that the COVID-19 “age-standardized case rate” is at its highest among the double-jabbed ‘fully vaccinated’ – and it isn’t particularly close.

The update also showed the sharp negative efficiency was maintained throughout double vaccinated rates for hospitalizations and deaths over the past four weeks.

And just like in the UK, the group who has fared the best when it comes to avoiding the Wu-flu over the past four weeks has been the unvaccinated.

JUST IN: Latest UK Data Shows Covid Infection RATE Among the Triple Jabbed (Boosted) Is HIGHER And RISING FASTER Than The Unvaccinated Across ALMOST EVERY Age Group

So much for the US public health regime’s bogus claim that, despite not preventing transmission,  vaccines are “incredibly safe” and “protect against severe illness and death.”

What else are they hiding?

According to Table 14 of this week’s “Public Health Scotland COVID-19 & Winter Statistical Report,” which shows the rate of infection over the past 4 weeks, the double/triple vaxxed are more likely to catch the virus, checking in at a rate of 865.79 per 100,000 and 481.49 per 100,000, respectively.

In comparison, the unjabbed case rate is just 412.77 per 100,000.

From PHS Table 14:

As illustrated above, the age-standardized case rates have been lowest in the unvaccinated group every single week for the past month – even the freshly-boosted cannot compete with their natural protection.

And when the data is presented in a linear graph using the 7-day rolling average of cases, the difference is readily apparent at first glance.

At its peak, the unvaccinated (top line – purple) barely crack a rate of 200 per 100,000, whereas the single/double/triple jabbed all clearly experience significantly higher peaks.

As for the hospitalizations and deaths among the vaccinated, the data isn’t much better.

What the PHS report makes clear is that the twice-jabbed are experiencing a higher rate of severe illness than anyone else, and, concerningly, the difference has only been getting worse as time continues.

From PHS table 15 (rate of hospitalizations):

And table 16 (rate of deaths):

As of right now, those who have taken two doses of the vaccine are dying at a rate of 11.89 per 100,000, which is over 50% higher than the unvaxxed. It should also be noted that – despite the abysmal results related to the transmission of the virus, the booster appears as-if has been doing its job and protecting against severe illness (11.68 per 100,000) and death (.46 per 100,000), but this is highly (and purposefully) misleading.

Buried within Appendix 6 of the PHS report is a section that defines how the official statistics are calculated. Per their own guidelines, all cases during the first 21 days after the first shot are recorded in the “unvaccinated” group. Additionally, those who have already received two shots, but are infected, hospitalized, or die within the first 14 days after receiving their booster would be lumped in with the two-dose cohort.

From Appendix 6:

It should also be noted that it is too early in the timeline for the majority of individuals who have taken their booster to hit peak protection (supposedly at day 45) and subsequent decline in immunity from there.

What the PHS report purports to show is that 18.5% of the hospitalizations in Scotland were unvaccinated – even less, it says, were boosted, but how many were vaccinated? Their case/hospitalization/death numbers include countless people within 21 days of the first shot and 14 days of their third.

Because of the lack of transparency surrounding the raw numbers, we cannot determine an exact number that have been switched over at this time.

This nefarious manipulation of the public health data is a tactic that’s assumed to have been employed across the world as a brazen attempt to cover up the failures of the experimental vaccine.

In fact, the Canadian province of Alberta just accidentally exposed themselves for engaging in this fraudulent practice before scrambling to delete the data from their website.

Thankfully, The Gateway Pundit has the receipts:

Alberta Canada Inadvertently Published (and Quickly Deleted) Health Data Exposing that MORE THAN HALF of VACCINATED DEATHS Have Been COUNTED AS UNVACCINATED

As Daniel Horowitz from Blaze Media puts it, this Covid data fraud is the “ultimate pandemic Ponzi scheme”:

Hence, for all these months, all the cases and deaths from those made more vulnerable from the first shot – which is caused by the mass vaccination, not the unvaccinated – are counted against the unvaccinated. Over time, as the shots waned on the back end, the truth became evident.

Now they are starting the cycle all over again by making the two-dose group look even worse than they are by dumping all of the cases caused by the initial take-up from the third dose into the cohort of double-vaccinated.

It’s the ultimate pandemic Ponzi scheme. Just wait another two months and see what the fourth-shot group looks like relative to the triple-dosers, as the immediate vaccination causes an even greater spike in cases. In other words, you have to look in totality where we are headed rather than manipulating a snapshot of time.”

If this is the case, and nothing is indicating anything otherwise, it is yet another evil human rights violation to add to the docket in the Nuremberg 2.0 trials.
