Americans Are Over Biden’s Pandemic Incompetence

Just eight months into Joe Biden’s presidency, it looks like most people have realized they’ve been had. His promise that he was the one they could trust to bring a swift end to the pandemic was a con.

An Axios-Ipsos poll released Tuesday showed that for the first time, a majority of U.S. adults, 53 percent, have little to no trust in Biden to relay accurate information related to COVID-19. Compare that to when nearly 60 percent of the public said they did trust him immediately at the time of his inauguration.

But trust in Biden since then has melted away at a steady pace. Why wouldn’t it? When he vowed to “shut down” the virus, voters presumably thought he was sitting on a plan that would carry us safely from the tail-end of the most depressing winter months, when we saw the daily death average climb last year in mid-October from 673 to a peak in mid-January of 4,030.

There were already three different and highly effective vaccines available, and Biden had signed yet another multitrillion-dollar welfare package (sometimes referred to as “COVID relief”) that was sold as a desperately needed remedy to the pandemic.

But thanks to Democrats — including Biden and his vice president, having spent 2020 casting doubt on any vaccine developed under the previous administration (after all, they had an election to win, even if it meant people would die) — a sizable chunk of the population vulnerable to the virus has resisted getting shots.

And the bloated spending bill wasn’t so much intended to beat back the virus as it was to keep people out of work by giving them obscene amounts of cash to stay home, the result of which has been a frustrating, persistent labor shortage and skyrocketing gas and food prices to boot.

So after months of a declining rate of infections, and even with a majority of the country having been vaccinated, beginning in early July, Biden oversaw only then the second-worst wave of new infection rates since the start of the pandemic. On July 5, we were averaging 10,608 new cases each day. By the middle of this month, that number had soared to 175,822.

In that same period, we were averaging 206 COVID-related deaths each day. By mid-September, the number was 1,618.

STUDY: Aspirin Use Significantly Raises Risk of Heart Failure

Aspirin increases the risk of heart failure by over 25%

STUDY: Aspirin Use Significantly Raises Risk of Heart Failure

Aspirin is one of the most common pain relievers in the world, but a new study finds it may be contributing to heart failure. Researchers with the European Society of Cardiology find taking aspirin raises the risk of heart failure among people with at least one pre-existing health risk. These include smoking, being obese, having high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease.

Aspirin has a complicated medical history. While some studies find regularly taking aspirin can help protect against illnesses like COVID-19 and cancer, others show it actually does more harm than good.

“This is the first study to report that among individuals with a least one risk factor for heart failure, those taking aspirin were more likely to subsequently develop the condition than those not using the medication,” says study author Dr. Blerim Mujaj of the University of Freiburg in a media release. “While the findings require confirmation, they do indicate that the potential link between aspirin and heart failure needs to be clarified.”

Older adults at high risk from aspirin use

In a study of nearly 31,000 people at risk of developing heart failure, the team found that aspirin users saw their chances of a heart failure diagnosis go up by 26 percent. Researchers defined “at risk” as anyone with a pre-existing health condition.

All of the participants were over the age of 40 and free of heart failure at the start of the experiment. The team recorded each person’s use of aspirin, separating them into two groups — users and non-users. Researchers followed up with the participants (who had an average age of 67) over a five-year period and after a person’s first fatal or non-fatal heart failure incident requiring hospitalization.

After accounting for influential factors like gender, weight, age, alcohol use, the use of medications, and various measures of health, the team concluded that aspirin independently contributes to increasing heart failure risk by more than a quarter among people with pre-existing health issues. Overall, 7,698 participants were taking aspirin and 1,330 developed heart failure over the next 5.3 years.

Even healthy people face dangers

To confirm their results, study authors compared the readings among aspirin users and non-users. They also examined the 74 percent of the study group that was free of cardiovascular disease (22,690 people) and found that using aspirin increased their risk of heart failure by 27 percent as well.

“This was the first large study to investigate the relationship between aspirin use and incident heart failure in individuals with and without heart disease and at least one risk factor. Aspirin is commonly used – in our study one in four participants were taking the medication. In this population, aspirin use was associated with incident heart failure, independent of other risk factors,” Dr. Mujaj concludes.

“Large multinational randomized trials in adults at risk for heart failure are needed to verify these results. Until then, our observations suggest that aspirin should be prescribed with caution in those with heart failure or with risk factors for the condition.”

The findings appear in the journal ESC Heart Failure.

Ivermectin Ends Covid in Japan

Ivermectin Ends Covid in Japan

Ivermectin was allowed as a treatment in Japan on August 13, 2021 when Dr. Hauro Ozaki, Chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association, spoke on national TV about Ivermectin use in Africa and saying citizens should make their own decision to try it or not.

12 days later on August 25 the spike up in Covid cases reversed and plummeted to almost zero where it has remained.

Ivermectin was never “officially approved” as a Covid treatment.

In Japan, several websites are selling boxes of 50 12mg pills for ~6500 yen. Some of them went out of stock and restricted buying several boxes at a time. You get your Ivermectin in ~10 days.
