|President Biden made a curious speech at an Illinois town hall, saying that vaccinated people cannot spread COVID. While the President is known for checking out from reality on occasion, this is contrary to what the CDC has found. With the unvaccinated providing a scapegoat for everything, including the President’s low approval ratings, it’s possible this gaffe was deliberate. Using data from 68 countries, Harvard researchers recently concluded that numbers of COVID cases are unaffected by vaccination rates, Given that the facts are clear, it would seem the government would rather ask forgiveness than permission. |
The push to get children vaccinated was helped by a New York Times piece which exaggerated COVID deaths in children by almost 15 times! But it was crickets from the factcheckers.
Pfizer has asked for emergency authorization to use its vaccines on children aged 5 to 11. But Sweden and Denmark have paused the use of Moderna vax for young people. The family of Henrietta Lacks is suing a biotech firm, saying cells were taken from her in 1951 without her consent. Mrs. Lacks’ cells were the first to be cloned, into an “immortal cell line” which is still used today. In our culture of death, the weak are preyed upon and it’s a strangely telling that babies can’t give consent to use their cells either.
Speaking of the unborn.. As expected Texas’ heartbeat bill was suspended by a circuit judge, but was reinstated soon after. The law is to go back and forth, but will likely make it up to the Supreme Court in the future.
|The “no jab, no job” juggernaut continued last week, with layoffs in many businesses, as we reported. But could it all be a fiction? Joy Pullman wrote at The Federalist that President Biden’s vaccine mandate is just a press release and has no real authority. Her piece is well worth reading and considering.|
While the Biden administration is threatening “dishonorable discharge” for military personnel who won’t take a COVID vaccine, there are encouraging displays of sense emerging in the white noise. An L.A. sheriff says he won’t enforce vaccine mandates because he can’t afford to lose officers. Southwest Airlines has cancelled 1,800 flights, raising speculation that there is a “sickout” protest over mandates.
Meanwhile, a village in Guatemalan village captured and ousted medical teams sent to vaccinate them. Villagers destroyed the vaccines and blockaded the road.
|Mad Christians don’t need to find conspiracies under every rock to know that evil really exists and that evil people really do evil things. In this age where the “cult of vaccines” has the fearful and the powerful worshiping at the altar of medicine, an instructive case-in-point has surfaced from the nation of Lithuania. A few stories have emerged, though not widely covered by Big Media, of what life is like for those who remain unvaccinated there. Mad Mondays understands that around 40% of Lithuanians remain unvaccinated and are quickly finding life very difficult.|
An anonymous man has penned a piece outlining what his life is like now. (See here and here.) Unvaccinated people are not allowed to enter many shops and businesses. Medical care is only allowed in emergencies and for outpatient appointments. Some have lost their jobs. The writer points out that Lithuania was under Soviet occupation in recent decades and deep divisions remain. While people are fearful of falling under such rule again, he says they are apathetic. Our histories might have tracked a little differently, but don’t think it can’t happen where you are.
Waiting for the storm to pass may not be an option. It may be time to brace ourselves for impact. Our church leaders are just as likely to be overcome by the white noise. Watch this sermon from Concordia Fort Wayne last week (around the 7 minute mark) and understand that whether through ignorance or by choice, people are not discerning the lies and obfuscation of the spirit of the age. GK Chesterton is said to have noted that, “A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it.” Mad Christians know that we, like St. Paul, are crucified to the world. We are those who were dead and are now alive, washed in the waters of baptism and equipped to battle everything that sets itself against the knowledge of God and his truth. It is hard work to swim against the tide, but if you’ve shaken wide awake, you know what’s at stake. More than that, you know that our Redeemer lives and his victory is sure. Take courage – you are immortal now.
|National Geographic, amongst other media outlets has pointed out that the current tally of COVID deaths means 1 in 500 Americans have died from the disease. A terrible milestone, for sure. Yet The Atlantic has published an article reinforcing what studies in other countries have found. The piece reports that almost half the recorded cases of COVID requiring hospitalization were for patients with mild cases or for those admitted for reasons other than COVID. One physician quoted says, “Those patients who are there with rather than from COVID don’t belong in the metric.”|
A spokesman for a rural Texas hospital says that if vaccine mandates are enforced many smaller medical centers may be forced to close. Larry Gray, Seminole Hospital District CEO, said that he would potentially lose a third of his staff and noted that mandates are a bad look for vaccines. “If the vaccinations are working, why do you have to mandate people to get [them]? What happens to individual choice and medical decisions between the patient and their doctor, which… we’re trying to support,” he said. Meanwhile, a hospital in upstate New York said it would pause delivering babies after a spate of resignations amongst maternity staff.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis says the HHS is making it difficult to acquire monoclonal medications, which are proving useful in treating patients with COVID. The Florida Governor also warned that any government agency mandating vaccines in his state will be fined. A judge in NY has also blocked the mandate for a group of health workers. Despite all this, elites keep pushing their narratives and justifying their hypocrisy. Leana Wan (a former head of Planned Parenthood) says that interstate travel should be a privilege only for vaccinated Americans (H/T golgatha). At the same time, it would seem that thousands of people are pouring through the southern US border without being vaxxed. Such privilege!
The Guardian has reported that boys are at risk of heart inflammation due to the Pfizer vaccination.
In a small win for sanity, England has ditched plans for vaccine passports. Well, at least for now.

“They” have been using these passion-enhancing tools to amplify the basest and most vile infatuations of the human psyche, and “they” will continue to breed tensions between men until “they” are consumed in the fires of His coming.

|President Biden lurched a little more totalitarian last week, mandating that staff at companies with 100 or more employers must be vaccinated against COVID or be tested weekly. (Except for Members of Congress, who apparently have a right to privacy and can’t be forced to be vaccinated.) The announcement was made during a troubling speech in which the President showed disdain for the unvaccinated, blaming them for clogging up hospitals, prolonging the pandemic and causing business and schools closures. Having said previously that he would not mandate vaccines, the President now says that his patience with those who won’t get vaccinated is “wearing thin.”|
The President also expressed his “disappointment” with a number of governors who vowed to fight the mandate saying he would use his power to “get them out of the way.” Well, that’s not crazy talk at all… Florida Governor Ron DeSantis went to bat for workers who will face a difficult choice. He also asked a reasonable question: If cases are 300% more than they were this time last year, doesn’t that suggest that vaccines might not be helping much?
Townhall believes that such a mandate will “sink in a legal quagmire,” but the President said any detractors could “have at it” in challenging the mandate, insisting that The Science and the public is on his side. Mad Christians who are facing the prospect of a mandated vaccination may be interested in a rec sent to us by Annie. It is from LifeSite and contains many ideas for how to go about applying for an exemption.
This may be more gaslighting from our leaders, a game of chicken to see who will flinch first. So know what you believe and why it’s important. Raise your voice in prayer and ask your heavenly Father for wisdom and strength. And know you are not alone.
|Fox has reported on leaked emails, showing that pressure from teachers’ unions caused the CDC to change its guidelines on masking in schools. Follow the science, indeed. The CDC has released data on the COVID death rate for kids and it’s really low. God be praised!|
Dr. Fauci is in trouble, after a new report added weight to the accusation that under his directorship, the Wuhan Institute of Virology was given US funding for “gain of function” research. Senator Josh Hawley has called for Dr. Fauci to resign. Stranger things have happened..
A study on the COVID vaccine’s effect on women’s menstrual cycles has been ordered by the NIH. You may rightly ask why this is happening now, months into the vaccination rollout? It’s hard to say, but The New York Post provides some insight in its report. An FDA spokeswoman said “We were worried this was contributing to vaccine hesitancy.”
|Job creation numbers were much lower than expected this August with only 230,000 positions added. Quite a bit less than the predicted 720,000. Yet other news reports suggest there is a labor shortage, not a job shortage. McDonalds in Oregon is hiring 14 and 15 year olds. Amazon has said it will drop the marijuana screening requirement in order to recruit more delivery drivers. Yahoo Finance says that half of US small businesses have positions to fill. Quite a few states have ended COVID relief payments, with Axios concluding that the reason people aren’t working is that they fear getting sick. |
It will be interesting to see how vaccine mandates play into this problem. Governor De Santis pointed out (linked above) that many people have worked through the pandemic, some by choice and others because they must, when no vaccination was available. NBC reported that 40% of staff in one Miami hospital remain unvaccinated. If they haven’t taken the vaccine by now, perhaps they don’t want to. What if they all resigned?
The Federal Reserve says it will soon stop pumping stimulus funds into the economy in the light of rising inflation, which saw the largest increase in August since 2010. While Americans have noticed price increases on fuel and groceries, the National Economic Council Director says if you take out beef, pork, and poultry, prices are pretty normal. Raccoon, anyone?
Bitcoin had a bit of a crash last week on the back of El Salvador adopting the cryptocurrency as legal tender. The millennial President of El Salvador, who swept to power two years ago, is a bit of a dark horse.
|The rise in the death toll was difficult to perceive at first.|
A “1% rise in cardiac enigmatic events in genetically-modified people per year compounding” is a dull headline. It went largely unreported by the Ministry of News for the first two decades of treatments. By the time the exogenous leukemias set in, “normal” rates of heart attack were demolishing people groups, reducing family survivability by 15%. “Anticancer mRNA protocols” added to the quarterly boosters didn’t stem the bleeding. It was a long time before most people were able to notice or begin to realize that no one was having children.

Everyone’s favorite loudmouth, Joe Rogan, has contracted COVID. Having been outspoken against COVID vaccines, Rogan has been taking various medications, including Ivermectin. He said in a post that he is feeling great.And to the battle still ahead… In a weirdly political episode, conservative talk show host, Candace Owens says she was denied a COVID test by a clinic in Colorado. The clinic claimed it would be “unfair’ for them to assist Owens because she “made the pandemic worse” by discouraging masks and vaccines.
The specter of vaccine mandates is still hanging around, with Reuters claiming that 52% of companies say they will mandate vaccines in the coming months. NPR seems surprised that vaccinations rise when they are mandated. While the article claims the rise in cases has jolted people into getting jabbed, we suspect the threat to livelihoods and the desire to go about their lives has a lot to do with it.
golgatha shared a Tweet with Us the Chill. A study about the usefulness of Ivermectin in fighting COVID-19 highlights the point: “Everyone has lost their minds and medicine is now purely political.” Yeah, we hear ya…
The biggest COVID news last week was that the Pfizer vaccine was given full approval from the FDA. Mainstream media outlets and Dr. Fauci seem to think that this move settles the matter of “vaccine hesitancy” and have called for more vaccine mandates. So after all the flip-flopping, all the censoring of dissenting voices, apparently all we needed was a branch of government to give us the thumbs up and now we’re good to go? Don’t think that’s how trust works…
The Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, has been taking a lot of heat for many of his policies, with haters in the media mis-reporting COVID deaths in the state. Many headlines and tweets relayed that over 900 people had died in the state in a day. However, in reality that was the total number of deaths for a month. This is just another reminder to keep your wits about you when you read the headlines.
Governor DeSantis recently signed an executive order, banning schools from imposing masks on students. A judge, however, has kicked back against the Order, claiming that DeSantis has overstepped his authority. So, to sum up: a governor ensuring parents have control over their kids’ health is “overstepping authority” but a judge ruling that kids without masks endanger the lives of others is not? Studies have led experts to conclude that there is a “lack [of] credible evidence for the benefits of masking kids.” Something about pots and kettles comes to mind.
The Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, has banned vaccine mandates for government employees.
A study by Britain’s National Health Service found that nitric oxide nasal spray reduced viral load in patients with mild COVID symptoms. The treatment may reduce the progression of the disease. Meanwhile, India is trialing a DNA vaccine.

But even CNN recognizes that fresh air is good for kids.
And the war over vaccines is also raging. The CDC has warned of “significant decline” in vaccine effectiveness and has called for booster shots. Some scientists say the push for booster shots is premature and that the evidence for dwindling immunity is not compelling. The Delta variant of SARS-CoV2 appears to be spreading easily through vaccinated people.
The zeal of the pro-vaccine crowd is running hot, with a story out of Washington about a heart transplant patient being removed from the organ waiting list, after confirming he won’t take a COVID vaccine. (H/T to @alisha for that story.) For Mad Christians who are avoiding the vaccine, we need to be aware of the rhetoric that is building. After President Biden said recently that the unvaccinated are prolonging the pandemic, WashPo columnist (and former head of Planned Parenthood ) Leana Wen wrote that America needs to return to indoor masking, and that it is all the fault of the unvaccinated.
The University of Virginia has disenrolled 238 unvaccinated students.

Although President Biden said only months ago that he would not mandate vaccines or masks at a national level, he has now ordered that federal workers must be vaccinated or submit to frequent testing. Postal workers are exempt from the order, which may be due to union opposition to mandatory vaccination. Many smaller power brokers are doing the same, with a new edict from Governor Newsom imposing similar conditions on Californian healthcare workers and state employees. The Department of Veteran Affairs will also mandate vaccination for its medical staff, as will NYC for its workers, while Broadway will require vaccinations and masks for audiences and crew.
President Biden recently suggested that people who are unvaccinated are “not as smart as he thought they were,” but his assertion that the only “pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated” may be challenged. Although the amount of “breakthrough” cases (where a vaccinated person contracts COVID) is small, vaccinated people can still spread the virus or even die in rare circumstances. Complicating the picture further is the fact that many agencies, including the CDC stopped tracking breakthrough cases except in cases of hospitalization or death, Bloomberg reports.
Liberal publication, Slate, has printed a dispassionate review of the “noble lies” told by public health officials. It is interesting to see a Left-leaning site acknowledge that a) lies were told and b) the lying did not produce the required behavior. Whether anyone will learn a lesson though, is another thing…
In the UK, recently leaked government figures show that almost half of the patients recorded as being admitted to hospital due to COVID, only tested positive on arrival. The new data suggests that the rate of hospitalization because of COVID is overstated.

The British PM lifted most restrictions from July 19, drawing the ire of liberal media. Cases are currently dropping in Britain, and no doubt the world will be watching.

|Without over-egging the Orwellian pudding, here’s a few pieces of news that would raise eyebrows if it weren’t 2021…|
A federal judge has sided with an Indiana University, saying they can mandate that students are vaccinated. In France, the Eiffel Tower has re-opened after nearly nine months closed. Tourists will need to show proof of vaccination, a recent recovery from COVID, or have negative test result to be admitted. Also in France, protests have erupted over the Macron government’s plan to mandate vaccines for health workers and require “health passports” in public spaces. Update: protests were held across Italy and also in Australia but Israel is trying some emotional blackmail.
If I could change the world: The debate against vaccine passports gained an ally in Eric Clapton.
