Young Athletes Who Catch Covid Can Develop Fatal Heart Disease, Study Shows

Myocarditis, causes a swelling of the heart muscle and has been linked to 20 per cent of sudden deaths in young athletes

[Ed. Note: Tragic, yet strange how the athletes didn’t start collapsing on the field until after the vaccines came along… There must have been a delay in how long it took covid to cause the myocarditis that the vaccine is certainly NOT causing.]

Young athletes are at risk of developing a potentially fatal heart condition after recovering from Covid, according to new research.

A small but significant number of budding sports professionals who had the virus have now developed the illness without showing any symptoms, say scientists.

The condition, known as myocarditis, causes a swelling of the heart muscle and has been linked to 20 per cent of sudden deaths in young athletes.

It affects the heart’s rhythm and ability to pump blood, often causing lasting damage in the form of scarring.

Now researchers in the United States have found college athletes could be at risk of developing the rare condition, which can only be spotted with an MRI.

Why Inflation is a Runaway Freight Train

by Charles Hugh Smith
Of Two Minds

The value of these super-abundant follies will trend rapidly to zero once margin calls and other bits of reality drastically reduce demand.

Inflation, deflation, stagflation–they’ve all got proponents. But who’s going to be right? The difficulty here is that supply and demand are dynamic and so there are always things going up in price that haven’t changed materially (and are therefore not worth the higher cost) and other things dropping in price even though they haven’t changed materially.

So proponents of inflation and deflation can always offer examples supporting their case. The stagflationist camp is delighted to offer a compromise case: yes, there are both deflationary and inflationary dynamics, and what we have is the worst of both worlds: stagnant growth and declining purchasing power.

What’s missing in most of these debates is a comparison of scale: deflationists point to things like big-screen TV prices dropping. OK, fine: we save $300 on a TV that we might buy once every two or three years. So we save $100 a year thanks to this deflation.

The U.S. Imposes Travel Restrictions in Response to New Covid-19 Variant. Again.

Plus: Los Angeles will start fining businesses that don’t enforce the city’s vaccine passport system, Disney yanks a China-critical Simpsons episode, and more…

Reason.com

The U.S. is once again imposing travel restrictions to stem the spread of yet another COVID-19 variant. Today, travel restrictions snap into place for noncitizens traveling by air from South Africa and seven other African countries in response to the spread of the newly discovered omicron variant in that region.

This new variant was discovered by South African scientists last week. The World Health Organization (WHO) classified it as a “variant of concern” on Friday.

That same day, President Joe Biden announced his latest round of travel restrictions, which he described as a “precautionary measure” that would give his administration more time to learn about the new variant.

The White House hasn’t said when these travel restrictions might be lifted. Biden, in a statement issued Friday, said only that “we will continue to be guided by what the science and my medical team advises.”

Biden’s “Big O”

by Simon Black
Sovereign Man

In 1894, a retired university professor named Paul Bachman was living out his golden years in Weimar, Germany.

Recently divorced, Bachman filled his days writing books, including what would become a five volume series… about analytical number theory.

It wasn’t exactly a James Bond novel; number theorists study things like prime numbers, infinity, and the fundamental properties of arithmetic.

Here’s a simple number theory example to give you a basic idea: prove that the sum of the first n integers (i.e. 1+2+3+4 . . . + n) is equal to (n2 + n)/2.

Number theory is full of seemingly elementary concepts which can turn out to be incredibly vexing… and much more complex than they initially appear. And the field has been applied widely in modern technology.

When All Else Fails, Bring Out the Masks

by Brian C. Joondeph
American Thinker

The world is approaching the two-year anniversary of COVID, a life-changing event for many of us. The virus caused death, disability, and permanent illness for some, closed businesses, interrupted education, and upended lives in myriad ways.

Much of what the medical establishment told us turned out to be wrong. Getting vaccinated was once the pathway to ending the coronavirus pandemic. Last April, President Joe Biden promised the country:

Getting together with friends, going to the park for a picnic without needing to mask up, we’re back to that place now as long as you get vaccinated. So go get the shot.

We did. Now America, and much of the first world is vaccinated. In the U.S., among the 12-and-up population, 80 percent have had at least one vaccine dose. And still COVID cases are rising, in the U.S. and abroad.

Wall Street Has Deployed a Dirty Tricks Playbook Against Whistleblowers for Decades – Now the Secrets Are Spilling Out

by Pam Martens
Wall Street on Parade

For more than two decades, the general counsels of Wall Street’s mega banks have been meeting together secretly once a year at ritzy hotels and resorts around the world. This would appear to be a clear violation of anti-trust law but since Wall Street’s revolving door has compromised the U.S. Department of Justice over much of that time span, there has been no pushback from the Justice Department to shut down these clandestine meetings.

Wall Street insiders say that among the top agenda items at this annual confab are strategy sessions on how to keep Congress from enacting legislation that would bring an end to Wall Street’s privatized justice system called mandatory arbitration. This system allows the most serially corrupt industry in America to effectively lock the nation’s courthouse doors to claims of fraud from its workers and customers. This private justice system also keeps the details of many of Wall Street’s systemic crimes out of the press.

Red Friday: A Little Dip and Already the Crybabies on Wall Street Are Clamoring for the Fed to Soothe Their Pain

by Wolf Richter
Wolf Street

But raging inflation is a political bitch, and the White House got the Fed to acknowledge it, and that changes the equation.

Stock markets closed at 1 p.m. today, and there wasn’t enough time to rectify this evil situation that has emerged on Black Friday, when stocks were supposed to be meandering higher on very low volume, driven by a few algos that would make sure stocks meandered higher to easily book another winning day and a new record high for the S&P 500 to keep the hype going.

But the sellers had arrived overnight while the buyers suddenly weren’t super-interested at buying at these ridiculously inflated record prices after the largest and fastest money printing scheme ever. And voilà. What everyone knew would happen someday, happened on this Red Friday, and stocks swooned.

Could the Fed Trigger the Next “Financial Crisis”

by Lance Roberts
Real Investment Advice

Could the Fed trigger the next “financial crisis” as they begin to hike interest rates? Such is certainly a question worth asking as we look back at the Fed’s history of previous monetary actions. Such was a topic I discussed in “Investors Push Risk Bets.” To wit:

“With the entirety of the financial ecosystem more heavily levered than ever, the “instability of stability” is the most significant risk.

The ‘stability/instability paradox’ assumes all players are rational and implies avoidance of destruction. In other words, all players will act rationally, and no one will push ‘the big red button.’

The Fed is highly dependent on this assumption. After more than 12-years of the most unprecedented monetary policy program in U.S. history, they are attempting to navigate the risks built up in the system.

The problem, as shown below, is that throughout history, when the Fed begins to hike interest rates someone inevitability pushes the “big red button.”

Biden’s ‘Infrastructure’ Bill Contains Backdoor ‘Kill Switch’ for Cars

by Former Rep. Bob Barr
DailyCaller.com

Buried deep within the massive infrastructure legislation recently signed by President Joe Biden is a little-noticed “safety” measure that will take effect in five years. Marketed to Congress as a benign tool to help prevent drunk driving, the measure will mandate that automobile manufacturers build into every car what amounts to a “vehicle kill switch.”

As has become standard for legislative mandates passed by Congress, this measure is disturbingly short on details. What we do know is that the “safety” device must “passively monitor the performance of a driver of a motor vehicle to accurately identify whether that driver may be impaired.”

Everything about this mandatory measure should set off red flares.

Wikipedia Community Considers Deleting Entry on Mass Killings Under Communism Over Claims of ‘Bias’

by Lucas Nolan
Breitbart.com

The Wikipedia entry for “mass killings under Communist regimes” is reportedly under threat of being removed from the platform over claims of bias.

The Telegraph reports that a Wikipedia entry which details “mass killings under Communist regimes,” is at risk of deletion over claims of bias within the entry. The Wikipedia page which outlines the details of millions of people under one-party Communist regimes such as the Soviet Union and China has been flagged for deletion.

Some Wikipedia editors reportedly disagree with blaming mass genocide on Communist ideology. The entry lists the actions of Communist figures such as Chairman Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, and Kim Jong Il. The article is accused of pushing a biased “anti-Communist” point of view and it is up to site administrators to rule on whether the article should be removed.

Reporter, Academics Claim the Word ‘Looting’ is Racist

“Looting is a term that we typically use when people of color or urban dwellers are doing something.”

by Steve Watson
Summit News

In the midst of a spate of organised looting in California and beyond, the media and academia is telling people that they shouldn’t be using the word ‘looting’ because it is associated with “people of colour”.

According to Julian Glover, ABC7 News Bay Area TV’s ‘Race and Social Justice reporter’ (yes really), the incidents should be described as “robbery” or “theft” because the word ‘looting’ is racist.

Glover cites Lorenzo Boyd, PhD, Professor of Criminal Justice & Community Policing at the University of New Haven, who claims that “Looting is a term that we typically use when people of color or urban dwellers are doing something. We tend not to use that term for other people when they do the exact same thing.”

Boyd also suggested the use of the word “looting” is part of an effort to politicize the crime wave by connecting it to Kyle Rittenhouse.

Vaccination Causes Covid Variants

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
PaulCraigRoberts.org

These “mutant strains” or variants are produced in response to the Covid vaccine. In other words, Fauci, Big Pharma, the medical establishment, and dumbshit politicians have unleashed an ever changing virus upon the world. The only hope is to immediately stop all Covid vaccination.

The Covid vaccinated are a grave threat to the unvaccinated, not only because the vaccinated “shed” the virus, thus spreading the virus to others, but also because the vaccine enables the virus to mutate in order to escape an immune response. The immunity the mutated variant of the virus achieves from the vaccine also gives the virus protection against the innate human immune system. In other words, people who have not damaged their innate immune system by taking the vaccine could now be confronted with a variant that their immune system is less able to repel.

What Fauci has done by financing the creation of the Covid-19 virus and by walking Big Pharma’s “vaccine” through the emergency use process is to create a Frankenstein virus capable of escaping immune responses.

Get Ready for President Hillary Clinton

Here’s my crystal ball. Democrats will demand Harris’ resignation, for starters

by Wayne Allyn Root
Info Wars

Muhammad Ali said, “It ain’t bragging if you can back it up.”

So, excuse me for bragging, but in my almost six years as a nationally syndicated radio and TV host, my predictions have been remarkably accurate. I’m not perfect, but I’m batting close to .990. It’s the best record of anyone in the media.

Almost everything I’ve predicted has come true, including a stolen election based on mail-in voting without voter ID; a communist takeover of the USA based on lockdowns, COVID-19 “public safety” mandates and open borders; and President Joe Biden being a brain-dead puppet with dementia.

I was already warning on my Newsmax TV show about Biden’s clearly diminished mental capacity back in 2019 and early 2020. It’s all on tape.

Fauci’s Plan to Prepare the U.S. for Omicron

by Mac Slavo
SHTF Plan

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the United State’s head medical tyrant has a plan to prepare Americans for the Omicron variant. If you think it has everything to do with panic and fear and mass vaccination, you’d be correct.

Tyrant Fauci said this new variant, is the “clarion call” to get vaccinated. They will not stop pushing the fear even though “the science” we are supposed to trust has said SARS-CoV-2 hasn’t been isolated. So where are the variants coming from? They are likely being fabricated. The ruling class likely doesn’t care that you believe the cold originated naturally in Wuhan or was released. They simply need you to believe in it.
