This spring, he was auditioning to be the host of “Jeopardy!” Nearly every day, he pops up on television ads for national brands like State Farm insurance. And on Sundays this fall, he has led the Green Bay Packers to a division-best 7-2 record. [SNIP] So when news broke that he tested positive for the coronavirus last week and was unvaccinated, Rodgers justified his decision to not get vaccinated by speaking out against the highly effective vaccines and spewing a stream of misinformation and junk science

Highly effective vaccines -stopped reading right there. It's no one's business if a person is vaccinated or not. Wonder if the main stream press will ever let out that Italy redid their numbers for covid deaths - no worse than the seasonal flu. What a sham the world has been put through. Follow the money. I think it was one huge experiment by a certain mad Dr.

In yet another page from the same playbook, the democrat propaganda machine (read, NYT) blames and charges its opponents with its own crime... In this case, accusing Rogers of misinformation about Covid19 vaccines, when they are the ones guilty of the crime. Just as they did when they accused every other vax-opponent of promoting junk science, Just as they did when they accused the Jan 6 protesters of undermining democracy and promoting white nationalism, Just as they did when they accused election fraud advocates of promoting a falsehood, Just as they did when they whitewashed the Floyd riots, Just as they do every time they side with the democrat party of lies, riots, inflation, poverty, unemployment, graft, corruption, and destruction.

I also stopped reading at “highly effective “. That vaccine is truly highly effective. In spreading the covid. And that’s why the shot is being pushed. So everyone either gets the covid or immune systems are compromised so other diseases make the vaccinated sick. Illegals still don’t have to be vaccinated. Why?

I can not believe there is NYT and AP crap on this site, two of the worst DNC propaganda spreaders allowed to spread the BS here. I now know three people that have become infected with the Fauci Virus, taken ivermectin and were back at work with in 5 days, one was in the hospital and left 30 hours after taking ivermectin. I'm 72, been working 14~16 hours a day, troll Walmart once a week and have never worn a mask but I do use the India, Uttar Pradesh multi-modal treatment strategy as prophylaxis against the Fauci Virus. Isn't it amazing that Merck (Molnupiravir (approved for use in the UK)) and Pfizer (PAXLOVID) now have 'pills' for the Fauci Virus...

I found everything Rodgers said to be true. Frankly, I had been sick of the guy's salary negotiations and where he was going to play, but I support his right to consent. Sign this or lose your job is not consent. Democrats should be given the same type of choice when the GOP is back in power.

So far, the approach to thes COVID mess has been anything but scientific. The gov't and its unindicted co-conspirators used a man made version of the flu to conduct the greatest transformation of wealth and power in the history of this country. An unproved genetic modification drug was given to millions of people with who knows what bad reactions will occur years from now, calling this science. The perpetrators of this hollo cast need to be tried and excecated.

Rodgers didn't say a thing that wasn't true. The current vaccine does not protect anyone from the Delta variant of Covid, and getting the vaccine is a personal decision. The polio vaccine was a personal decision, however, the polio vaccine was an actual vaccine that worked.

When the NYT is attacking you it means you must be doing something right. How many of you think you can run through a series of tests that have a false positive rate (that means an error that says you have the virus when you really don't) of about 4% and get through about 300 tests before you get a positive? There is something really foul going on when the regime is insisting on vaccinations but denying the use of known safe and effective medications to help people recover. We need laws to prevent the public health officials from profiting from their investment in new vaccines and meds while banning the use of older inexpensive and safe medications.

I'm not taking advice for my health from the likes of articles from the NYT or white lab coat wearers like the criminal Dr. Fauci. Not today not ever.

Only misinformation out there is coming from the Feds/scientists/FDA/CDC and the media is pushing it all. Rodgers and others who speak up about reality and why they don't want the jab are the ones telling the truth here. Not the Swamp. Someday maybe the reality from the rest of the world and how they are not mandating jabs, masks and other stuff is going to break through the fog of propaganda right now.

The "vaccines" are: 1) not vaccines, they are genetic therapy 2) become ineffective for stopping the disease in a few months 3) are apparently entirely ineffective at preventing a person spreading the virus 4) cause a far higher risk of death or permanent health damage than all other vaccines combined over a quarter of a century 5) may well cause infertility, or other long term harm, even if you survive the short term risks

Seeing "scientists" in the headline made me glance at the source (nodding) and skim the lede (yup). The slimes trying to make people think that science, itself, supports their position -- as if there aren't plenty of other scientists that aren't fooled by the fraud. Kind of like their Warmism dogma, for which they have claimed a "scientific consensus" ever since they could find more than one sucker, I mean scientist, to promote their cause. The majority of misinformation I see is coming from the WuFlu hype machine and the non-vaccine "vaxx up" advertisements (which seem to be EVERYWHERE, like good propaganda).

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Friday he sought alternative treatments instead of the NFL-endorsed COVID-19 vaccinations because he is allergic to an ingredient in two of the FDA-approved shots. Speaking on SiriusXM’s “Pat McAfee Show,” Rodgers said: “I’m not an anti-vax, flat-earther. I have an allergy to an ingredient that’s in the mRNA vaccines. I found a long-term immunization protocol to protect myself and I’m very proud of the research that went into that.” Rodgers, who turns 38 on Dec. 2, did not say what ingredient he was allergic to, or how he knows he is allergic.

The “penis doctor” community is playing hardball to promote vaccine awareness.

Their potentially penis-propping PSA is currently going viral on YouTube.

NEW YORK — Health officials on Friday offered more evidence that vaccinations offer better protection against COVID-19 than immunity from a prior infection. Unvaccinated people who had been infected months earlier were 5 times more likely to get COVID-19 than fully vaccinated people who didn’t have a prior infection, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concluded in a new study. “These data show, pretty strongly, that the vaccines are more protective against symptomatic COVID,” said Dr. Mike Saag, an infectious disease expert at the University of Alabama.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Despite warnings the race would be close, California Gov. Gavin Newsom decisively defeated efforts to kick him out of office, a win the Democrat cast as an endorsement of his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and his party’s liberal values. Newsom cruised to victory in the recall election Tuesday, boosted by healthy turnout among an overwhelmingly Democratic electorate, ensuring the nation’s most populous state will remain a laboratory for progressive policies. With an estimated two-thirds of ballots counted, the “no” response to the question of whether to recall Newsom was ahead by a 30-point margin.

This Sept. 11, a diminished president will preside over a diminished nation. [Snip] Joe Biden was supposed to be the man of the hour: a calming presence exuding decency, moderation and trust. As a candidate, he sold himself as a transitional president, a fatherly figure in the mold of George H.W. Bush who would restore dignity and prudence to the Oval Office after the mendacity and chaos that came before. It’s why I voted for him, as did so many others who once tipped red. Instead, Biden has become the emblem of the hour: headstrong but shaky, ambitious but inept.

WASHINGTON — Two weeks after celebrating America’s near “independence” from the coronavirus, President Joe Biden is confronting the worrying reality of rising cases and deaths — and the limitations of his ability to combat the persistent vaccine hesitance responsible for the summer backslide. Cases of COVID-19 have tripled over the past three weeks, and hospitalizations and deaths are rising among unvaccinated people. While the rates are still sharply down from their January highs, officials are concerned by the reversing trendlines and what they consider needless illness and death. And cases are expected to continue to rise in coming weeks.

Although Adams found common ground with the activists on plans to fight poverty in the black community, the former NYPD captain said he’ll be reinstating a revamped version of the undercover anti-crime unit that was disbanded at the height of widespread police protests last year.
