Germany Won’t Send Warplanes to Ukraine: German Chancellor

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is indicating that he doesn’t favor supplying old MiG fighter jets to Ukraine.

Poland late Tuesday offered to give the United States 28 MiG-29 fighter planes for Ukraine’s use. U.S. officials said the proposal was “untenable,” but they would continue to consult with Poland and other NATO allies.

Scholz was asked Wednesday whether Germany would be prepared to allow such a delivery, and whether he feared being drawn into the conflict by a jet delivery via the United States’ Ramstein Air Base in Germany—which Poland had proposed.

Scholz noted that Germany has given Ukraine financial and humanitarian aid, as well as some weapons. He added: “otherwise, we must consider very carefully what we do in concrete terms, and that most certainly doesn’t include fighter planes.”

‘No Critical Impact on Safety’ at Chernobyl Nuclear Plant

The International Energy Agency (IAEA) said there has been “no critical impact” on the safety of the Chernobyl nuclear site in Ukraine after Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and other officials issued a warning about a potential radiation leak overnight.

Kyiv’s government informed the U.N. nuclear agency at the power plant, said its chief, Rafael Grossi, which he said “violates [a] key safety pillar on ensuring uninterrupted power supply,” but the “IAEA sees no critical impact on safety,” according to a Twitter post on Wednesday.

“IAEA says [the] heat load of spent fuel storage pool and volume of cooling water at [the] Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant sufficient for effective heat removal without need for electrical supply,” the IAEA’s Twitter thread continued to say.

It came hours after the State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate of Ukraine said the Chernobyl nuclear site lost power, issuing a warning about a possible radiation leak. Days after the Feb. 24 invasion, Russian forces captured the plant, located along the Ukraine–Belarus border, which is about 60 miles north of Kyiv, Ukrainian officials confirmed.

US Intelligence Officials Taking Putin’s Nuclear Threat Seriously

U.S. intelligence officials said on March 8 that they’re taking Russian President Vladimir Putin’s nuclear threats seriously.

“It was very unusual. And we obviously take it very seriously when he’s signaling in this way,” Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines told the House Intelligence Committee in Washington.

Putin placed his nuclear forces on high alert in February. The United States has not responded beyond delaying a test launch in a bid to lower tensions.

Such a public announcement hasn’t been seen since the 1960s, according to Haines, describing Putin as “posturing” with the goal of deterring further Western support for Ukraine.

While Russian troops have been met with stiffer resistance than projected, “Putin probably still remains confident that Russia can militarily defeat Ukraine and wants to prevent Western support from tipping the balance and forcing a conflict with NATO,” Haines said.

Wheat Exports Banned as Civilians Flee

Ukraine banned wheat exports as civilians sought escape routes and concerns intensified over safety at the embattled country’s nuclear plants.

As the Russian invasion rounds out its second week, feeding the desperate populace became an increasingly critical concern. Ukraine’s government banned the export of wheat crucial to global food supplies in an effort to stave off food shortages and hunger inside the country.

Life has become increasingly desperate in cities cut from electricity and facing food and medicine shortages. The port city of Mariupol is particularly devastated, lacking running water, heat, sanitary systems, and phone service.

Poland Ready to Supply MiG Jets to Ukraine but via NATO

Poland is ready to make its Russian-made fighter jets available to Ukraine, via NATO, Poland’s prime minister said Wednesday. But he added that it’s a “very serious decision” that should be taken by all NATO alliance members because it affects wider security.

Premier Mateusz Morawiecki says the decision on whether to make the MiG-29 planes available to Ukraine as it fights Russia’s invasion is now in the hands of NATO and the United States.

“Poland is not a side in this war … and NATO is not a side in this war,” Morawiecki said during a visit to Vienna. “Such a serious decision like handing over planes must be unanimous and unequivocally taken by all of the North Atlantic Alliance.”

Morawiecki said talks on the subject are continuing.

Ukraine has been calling on the United States and Western countries to provide fighter jets. Poland responded on Tuesday by offering to transfer its planes to a U.S. military base in Germany, with the expectation that the planes would then be handed over to Ukrainian pilots. The Pentagon reacted by saying it had not been aware of the plan which it finds “untenable.”

EU Agrees to New Sanctions Against Russia Over Ukraine Invasion

European Union countries have agreed to slap further sanctions on Russia, targeting oligarchs and their relatives.

In addition to measures already adopted targeting President Vladimir Putin, Russia’s financial system, and the country’s high-tech industry, the EU imposed new sanctions on 160 individuals and added new restrictions on the export of maritime navigation and radio communication technology. The extra measures are also aimed at Russia’s ally Belarus.

The French presidency of the European Council said they will exclude three Belarussian banks from SWIFT, the dominant system for global financial transactions.

Russia and Ukraine Announce a New Ceasefire to Let Civilians Flee Besieged Cities

Ukrainian authorities have announced a 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ceasefire along several evacuation routes for civilians in besieged or occupied cities.

Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk said Russian authorities on Wednesday confirmed the ceasefire along the evacuation corridors to Ukrainian counterparts and the Red Cross.

She said the routes lead out of Sumy in the northeast, Mariupol on the Azov Sea coast, Enerhodar in the south, Volnovakha in the southeast, Izyum in the east, and several towns in the Kyiv region.

All the corridors lead to sites elsewhere in Ukraine that are currently held by the Ukrainian government.

The route out of Sumy, on the Russian border, is the only one that has been used successfully so far, allowing for the evacuation of 5,000 people on Tuesday southwest to the city of Poltava.

Ukrainian officials released videos Wednesday showing trucks and buses with Red Cross symbols heading to besieged cities.

Poland Says NATO Countries Must Act Together on Jets for Ukraine

Any supply of fighter jets to Ukraine must be done through NATO, top Polish officials said on Wednesday, after Washington rejected Poland’s offer to fly all its MIG-29 jets to a U.S. airbase with a view to them being supplied to Kyiv.

Ukraine has pleaded with Western nations to provide it with fighter jets to counter a Russian invasion that has forced more than 2 million refugees to flee the country, and U.S. lawmakers have responded by pushing President Joe Biden’s administration to facilitate the transfer of aircraft.

On Tuesday, Poland said it was ready to deploy all its MIG-29 jets to Ramstein Air Base in Germany and put them at the disposal of the United States, urging other NATO members to do the same. The Pentagon later dismissed the offer as not “tenable.”

“The USA does not want these planes to come to Ukraine from American bases,” Jakub Kumoch, the Polish president’s foreign affairs adviser, told public broadcaster TVP Info. “Poland is ready to act, but only within the framework of the alliance, within the framework of NATO.”

Russia’s defense ministry has warned that countries offering air fields to Ukraine for attacks on Russia may be considered as having entered the conflict.

Poland’s Deputy Foreign Minister Pawel Jablonski told public radio station Polskie Radio 1 that Poland had to prioritize its security when considering the supply of jets to Ukraine.

“It cannot be that Poland has—as the only NATO country—to take the risk, and the other countries would not have to compensate or share it with us in any way,” he said.

Air Alert Declared in Kyiv as Fighting Continues

An air alert was declared Wednesday morning in and around Kyiv, with residents urged to get to bomb shelters as quickly as possible.

“Kyiv region—air alert. Threat of a missile attack. Everyone immediately to shelters,” regional administration head Oleksiy Kuleba said on Telegram.

Nearly two weeks into the invasion, Russian troops have advanced deep along Ukraine’s coastline. The city of Mariupol, which sits on the Azov Sea, has been surrounded by Russian soldiers for days and a humanitarian crisis is unfolding in the encircled city of 430,000.

For days, as Moscow’s forces have laid siege to Ukrainian cities, attempts to create corridors to safely evacuate civilians have stumbled amid continuing fighting.

Across the country, thousands of people are thought to have been killed, both civilians and soldiers, in nearly two weeks of fighting. Russian forces have seen their advances stopped in certain areas—including around Kyiv, the capital—by fiercer resistance than expected from the Ukrainians.

As Russia Attacks Ukraine, China Eyes the Indo–Pacific: Australia Intelligence Boss

A “troubling new strategic convergence” between Beijing and Moscow has developed and the risk of “major power conflict” has grown since Russia invaded Ukraine, Australia’s intelligence chief said on Wednesday.

Andrew Shearer, director general of the Office of National Intelligence, said China’s leader Xi Jinping appears to be planning to dominate the Indo–Pacific region and use it as a base to overtake the United States as the world’s leading power.

The comments reinforce warnings that the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which has met near-universal condemnation by the West, may spread into a regional or global conflict. This week Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison called on liberal democracies to stop an “arc of autocracy” reshaping the world.

“We’re going to have to work much harder to maintain the liberal quality of the rules-based order in Europe and here in the Indo–Pacific region,” Shearer said at a conference hosted by the Australian Financial Review.

“We see a leader who’s really battening down and hardening his country for this struggle to overtake the United States as the world’s leading power,” he added, referring to Xi.

“The base camp … is to establish primacy in the Indo–Pacific region.”

EU Rolls out Plan to Cut Russia Gas Dependency

The European Commission published plans on Tuesday to cut the EU’s dependency on Russian gas by two-thirds this year and end its reliance on Russian supplies of the fuel “well before 2030.”

The European Union executive said it will do so by switching to alternative supplies and expanding clean energy more quickly under the plans, which will largely be the responsibility of national governments for implementing.

Russia Underestimated Ukraine’s Resistance, US Officials Say

The United States believes Russia underestimated the strength of Ukraine’s resistance before launching an invasion that has likely caused thousands of Russian casualties, the Biden administration’s top intelligence official told lawmakers Tuesday.

The testimony, in a hearing before the House Intelligence Committee, amounted to the first public assessment of the two-week-old war by the nation’s senior intelligence officials, who offered their insights into the thinking and motives of Russian President Vladimir Putin as his forces continue their march through Ukraine.

The officials made clear that Russia’s assault has been slowed by unexpected resistance by Ukrainian defenders and that it was now uncertain if Putin would proceed with a “maximalist” strategy to try to capture all of Ukraine or would settle for something short of that. Either way, they said they believed he was determined to press his invasion forward despite mounting casualties, global sanctions, and efforts by Western nations to isolate the Kremlin, including a U.S. ban on Russian oil imports.

“We assess Putin feels aggrieved the West does not give him proper deference and perceives this as a war he cannot afford to lose,” Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines said. “But what he might be willing to accept as a victory may change over time given the significant costs he is incurring.”

McDonald’s, Starbucks, Coke, and Pepsi Halt Sales in Russia

McDonald’s, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, and Starbucks stopped sales of their best-known products in Russia on Tuesday.

All four companies have major operations in Russia.

McDonald’s said it would go on paying salaries to its 62,000 employees in Russia as it closed 847 restaurants.

Starbucks Corp. is temporarily closing hundreds of stores. PepsiCo Inc. will suspend all advertising in Russia and stop the sale of its drinks brands, while continuing to sell essentials such as milk and baby food. Rival Coca-Cola Co. said it will suspend its business there.

Scores of other companies also have rebuked Russia, and Amazon.com Inc. said on Tuesday it would stop accepting new customers for its cloud services in Russia and Ukraine. Universal Music suspended all operations in Russia, and online dating service Bumble Inc. will remove its apps from stores in Russia and Belarus.

Pentagon Says Poland’s Offer to Send Fighter Jets for Ukraine Is Not Tenable

The Pentagon said late on March 8 that Poland’s offer to send fighter jets is not tenable, after Poland’s Foreign Ministry announced it would deploy MiG-29 jets to the U.S. Air Force’s Ramstein Air Base in Germany “and place them at the disposal of the Government of the United States of America.”

The deployment of the 28 MiG-29s would be immediate and free of charge, the Foreign Ministry added. “At the same time, Poland requests the United States to provide us with used aircraft with corresponding operational capabilities,” it said in a statement.

The Polish government also called on other NATO member nations that own MiG-29 planes to transfer their planes to the United States.

In a statement late on March 8, Pentagon press secretary John F. Kirby said: “The prospect of fighter jets ‘at the disposal of the Government of the United States of America’ departing from a U.S./NATO base in Germany to fly into airspace that is contested with Russia over Ukraine raises serious concerns for the entire NATO alliance.

“It is simply not clear to us that there is a substantive rationale for it. We will continue to consult with Poland and our other NATO allies about this issue and the difficult logistical challenges it presents, but we do not believe Poland’s proposal is a tenable one,” he said.

US Commerce Secretary Warns Chinese Firms Not to Help Russia Skirt Sanctions

U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo on March 8 bluntly warned Chinese companies not to contravene trade sanctions against Russia by supplying the belligerent nation with chips and other supplies needed to sustain the war effort against Ukraine. Firms that do not abide by the sanctions can be “essentially shut” down, she said.

Raimondo, in an interview with The New York Times, said that Russia “is certainly going to be courting other countries to do an end run around our sanctions and export controls,” but issued a harsh ultimatum to companies not to cooperate with any such circumvention.

The commerce secretary emphasized the ease with which the Biden administration could shut down China’s largest chipmaker Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC) or any other firms that make their technology available to Russia, adding it does not make sense from the companies’ own point of view to flout U.S. sanctions.

“They have their own self-interest to not supply this stuff to Russia. So they’re not doing it out of the goodness of their heart. It would be devastating to China’s ability to produce these chips,” Raimondo said.

MOST RECENT AGENDA ADVERTISED ON LDPCSD WEBSITE?

“Regular Meeting of the Board of Directors
9751 Merced Falls Road
June 17, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.”

Only a small and relatively insignificant hint as to the misdirection and outdated/incorrect information this district has experienced, produced and disseminated to the public compliments of “LAFCO ANNEXATION SPECIAL INTERESTS” (in and out of government) since long before the LDPCSD’s formation in 1980. The name itself (Community Services District) misrepresents the actual customer base that was designed and intended to be the MERCED RIVER WATER ENTITLED CUSTOMERS (MR WECs) of the Lake Don Pedro residential subdivision. (Just as the original State Water Board documents and other associated agreements clearly reveal and uphold.)

My best to you and yours, Lew

PS: “My best” because “we” (fellow MR WECs) sure aren’t getting the best from our hi-jacked “community services district”. That is unless of course special interest corruption, management and operation were always the goals envisioned by the County LAFCOs (Local Agency Formation Commissions) which formed this district.

Well, guess that outdoor work will wait……looking at this stuff again is quite aggravating!

Unfortunately, I wholeheartedly believe this district was indeed intentionally designed and set up for what witnessed for many years: FRAUD!

(Just think….. only 88 people voted in favor of successfully enslaving over 3,000 property owners for perpetuity with a crooked CSD to expand water service while those entitled water users pay all additional costs.)

MANY STRAWS IN A DRINK HELD BY ANOTHER

The LDPCSD was formed in such a way as to permit the respective county LAFCOs to place their “straws” into the Merced River water impounded at Lake McClure. “Liberating” such water would permit massive development in these drought prone rural foothills without the respective counties having to use their funds to obtain the necessary water for development.

VIOLATED OWN RULE IN ORDER TO ASSURE CONTINUED VIOLATIONS OF MR WEC RIGHTS

This is why their own ignored LAFCO RESOLUTION 76-4 https://lakedonpedro.org/?s=lafco+76-4 is so important in understanding the coordinated depths of betrayal. MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO (as lead agency in the formation process) clearly violated their own resolution requirement regarding annexation applications into a district that were submitted for approval.

  1. Was there available water for the project in the first place? No.
  2. Then why proceed with the ANNEXATION into a district that could not legally provide the necessary water? Good question.

Also consider, 76-4 was written four years prior to the formation of the LDPCSD providing more than sufficient time to “cook the books” and conceal evidence of the scam. (Add to this another 10 years or so in background research and “deal making” makes 14 years of behind the scene planning before actually created as a “California Special District”.

SURELY THE COUNTY STUDIED THE FEASIBILITY OF SUCH EXPANDED WATER SERVICE

How could an in depth LAFCO study of potential water service to other properties in the future (referred to as SOI, or Sphere of Influence) be planned, funded, produced and made publicly available concerning possible water service in the area, WITHOUT ONE FUCKING WORD ABOUT MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT WATER LICENSE 11395 PROHIBITING WATER SERVICE OUTSIDE THE SUBDIVISION AND GOLF COURSE AREA? OR THAT MERCED RIVER WATER WAS THE ONLY SOURCE OF WATER IT EVEN HAD TO PROVIDE?

Please take a look at this document and ask yourself, IF our district only had Merced River Water to provide customers, and that water could only be served in the subdivision/golf course, why was this

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FACT NEVER MENTIONED IN THE SOI STUDY?

HAD EXISTING POLICIES BEEN FOLLOWED MR WECs WOULD HAVE BEEN PROTECTED FROM FRAUD!

SO MANY incorrect statements in this report- it assists in understanding this continuing fraud.

Like a fire safety report that ignores fact officials routinely play with matches in a petroleum refinery?

HOW WAS DISTRICT TO FURNISH WATER FOR MASSIVE DEVELOPMENT THAT IT DID NOT HAVE?

Spoiler alert: the original developers of the residential subdivision recognized this upcoming problem with WATER LICENSE RESTRICTIONS and had developed 13 groundwater wells as insurance but they were ultimately abandoned due to poor water quality or insufficient production – and although the concept of developing such groundwater wells was again considered (thus repeating the same expensive failure as original developers) they would be EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE and UNDEPENDABLE for sustaining such massive developments in a drought prone region. (That’s why subdivision lots were desirable – they had water!)

HAVE SOMETHING VALUABLE? BETTER PROTECT IT OR ELSE……

But that subdivision advantage of water availability was also the reason it was subsequently targeted as the victim of organized government water theft using a LAFCO formed FRAUD OF A COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT (a form of California Special District) as the mechanism for the theft – enter Lake Don Pedro “community services district” in 1980. This is also why “SNEAKY PETE” Kampa’s 20+ year history as a director with the CSDA (California Special District’s Association) is so crucial in understanding this massive CALIFUSION FRAUD and how it was established, maintained and can continually escape warranted intervention by authorities. Pssst! The “authorities” were always involved!

(Sorry-just had a brain hiccup….. the January 6th False Flag scam popped into the ‘ol grey matter for some reason.)

So the subdivision had high quality available water (legal only for the subdivision/golf course properties however) that might SOMEHOW be utilized to develop vast areas of foothill land that LAFCO could “ANNEX” into their created LDPCSD and then later demand that same district to furnish water for all LAFCO’s approved developments.

<Wow. Sure sounds like an organized criminal enterprise using public authority, power and financial resources to accomplish unethical goals yeah?>

Yes, history as shown that our water source was indeed hi-jacked and the subdivision dealt a simultaneous and corresponding negative development variable affecting property values for perpetuity:

why buy land in a subdivision with extra and more restrictive rules (prime reason such properties were ENTITLED TO THAT LICENSED 11395 WATER) when told by developers, real estate interests, and LAFCOs themselves (by approving annexations into the LDPCSD), you could purchase “open land without a property owners association” and ….

receive the very same water for the same price?

GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION TO CIRCUMVENT WL11395 RESTRICTIONS

OK, no Merced River water outside the POU – how ’bout we blend it with inferior groundwater and then sell it outside the POU as a blended water that doesn’t violate WL11395?

But where could such funding possibly be tapped for development of extremely expensive groundwater wells in a drought prone region to mix with state restricted river water in order to provide the water necessary for LAFCO’s proposed massive developments on land it annexed into LAFCO’s created Community Services District which also happens to defy all four characteristics of a legitimate special district? (Limited service, defined service area, particular customers and service provided for cost of production)

WHERE TO OBTAIN THE NEEDED MONEY FOR THE MISDIRECTION?

  1. The “Deep Pocket” of thousands of MRWECs (Merced River Water Entitled Customers of the LDP Subdivision (Originally Sierra Highlands Water Company) property owners, and
  2. Government GRANT MONEY!

Yup, violated their own rules to essentially steal water from the LDP subdivision for other developments LAFCO WAS APPROVING left and right (at one time 7 different proposed subdivisions were demanding OUR WATER for their adjacent proposed developments! Yes – that 900 ac proposed “20 year slumbering subdivision” on the Shores of Lake McClure that KAMPA and LAFCO concealed from the public all that time, was one of them! Some Board Directors at that time didn’t even know about that subdivision or the other quiet “under the radar” annexations “SNEAKY PETE KAMPA” was setting up behind the scene with LAFCOs! Seriously – without board permission OR AUTHORITY!

KAMPA, CSDA, STATE WATER BOARD OFFICIALS, etc, ALL WORKING TOGETHER TO DEFRAUD MRWECs

Apparently Lake Don Pedro CSD started Kampa’s 20+ year relationship with the CSDA – California Special Districts Association – which greatly assisted Kampa with his criminal misrepresentation of our district water service boundaries to local, state and federal grant providers to obtain the cash necessary to develop EMERGENCY DROUGHT GROUNDWATER, which contrary to what customers were told at the time, would indeed later be blended and sold to other LAFCO ANNEXATIONS outside the water license POU. “Emergency drought groundwater” was the intended purpose by the government, but it never was the actual motive for the grants – it was all about expanding district water service outside the Place of Use under the water license. (QUESTION: Then why would the government provide millions of dollars for a purpose SPECIFICALLY PROHIBITED IN THE GRANT? They were lied to by PETE KAMPA and THE BORED OF DEFECTORS about the district service area for one.)

CURIOUS FACT

Why was all the information regarding PETER KAMPA’s reported affiliation with DELFT UNIVERSITY in Europe removed from the internet? Was it originally posted as disinformation for his career background? Or was it factual information suggesting Kampa’s apparent hardcore socialist orientation regarding public resource allocation and thus had to be removed when folks started asking questions?

QUITE SIMPLE ACTUALLY

For all the above and much more (did it again! Should be outside working!)

They didn’t want our subdivision property with entitled water, only our subdivision entitled water on their LAFCO ANNEXED PROPERTY!

Yup! Wanted several other residential subdivisions up here in the foothills but… WITHOUT OUR ADDITIONAL LAYER OF ONION SKIN GOVERNMENT IN THE FORM OF A PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION WITH CC&Rs, VIOLATION COMMITTEES, and ANNUAL ASSESSMENTS just to name a few.

They wanted to receive one of the PRIME SELLING POINTS FOR ACQUIRING SUBDIVISION PROPERTY (available water) WITHOUT THE NORMAL COSTS IN OBTAINING SUCH…….ie, accepting another layer of development restrictions and yearly billed assessment, etc!)

LAFCO was harming the approved existing subdivision and the majority of property owners within it (who were MANDATORY CUSTOMERS OF THE LDPCSD) by demanding this “LAFCO formed CSD” provide water outside the legal service area.

If evaluated in regards to the characteristics of an unethical, illegal and mismanaged CSD, for decades now the LAKE DON PEDRO COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT has been an outstanding example as to how radical left forces can mismanage and destroy important elements of our once beautiful and proud California, and turn it into the current state of CALIFUSION it has become.

That’s it! Must get to outside work. I’ll check for spelling errors later.

My best to you and yours, Lew

Pfizer’s COVID-19 Vaccine Goes Into Liver Cells and Is Converted to DNA: Study

By Meiling Lee March 1, 2022 Updated: March 2, 2022 biggersmallerPrint

The messenger RNA (mRNA) from Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is able to enter human liver cells and is converted into DNA, according to Swedish researchers at Lund University.

The researchers found that when the mRNA vaccine enters the human liver cells, it triggers the cell’s DNA, which is inside the nucleus, to increase the production of the LINE-1 gene expression to make mRNA.

The mRNA then leaves the nucleus and enters the cell’s cytoplasm, where it translates into LINE-1 protein. A segment of the protein called the open reading frame-1, or ORF-1, then goes back into the nucleus, where it attaches to the vaccine’s mRNA and reverse transcribes into spike DNA.

Reverse transcription is when DNA is made from RNA, whereas the normal transcription process involves a portion of the DNA serving as a template to make an mRNA molecule inside the nucleus.

“In this study we present evidence that COVID-19 mRNA vaccine BNT162b2 is able to enter the human liver cell line Huh7 in vitro,” the researchers wrote in the study, published in Current Issues of Molecular Biology. “BNT162b2 mRNA is reverse transcribed intracellularly into DNA as fast as 6 [hours] after BNT162b2 exposure.”

BNT162b2 is another name for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine that is marketed under the brand name Comirnaty.

The whole process occurred rapidly within six hours. The vaccine’s mRNA converting into DNA and being found inside the cell’s nucleus is something that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said would not happen.

“The genetic material delivered by mRNA vaccines never enters the nucleus of your cells,” the CDC said on its web page titled “Myths and Facts about COVID-19 Vaccines.”

This is the first time that researchers have shown in vitro or inside a petri dish how an mRNA vaccine is converted into DNA on a human liver cell line, and is what health experts and fact-checkers said for over a year couldn’t occur.

The CDC says that the “COVID-19 vaccines do not change or interact with your DNA in any way,” claiming that all of the ingredients in both mRNA and viral vector COVID-19 vaccines (administered in the United States) are discarded from the body once antibodies are produced. These vaccines deliver genetic material that instructs cells to begin making spike proteins found on the surface of SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19 to produce an immune response.

Pfizer didn’t comment on the findings of the Swedish study and said only that its mRNA vaccine does not alter the human genome.

“Our COVID-19 vaccine does not alter the DNA sequence of a human cell,” a Pfizer spokesperson told The Epoch Times in an email. “It only presents the body with the instructions to build immunity.”

More than 215 million or 64.9 percent of Americans are fully vaccinated as of Feb. 28, with 94 million having received a booster dose.

Autoimmune Disorders

The Swedish study also found spike proteins expressed on the surface of the liver cells that researchers say may be targeted by the immune system and possibly cause autoimmune hepatitis, as “there [have] been case reports on individuals who developed autoimmune hepatitis after BNT162b2 vaccination.”

The authors of the first reported case of a healthy 35-year-old female who developed autoimmune hepatitis a week after her first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine said that there is a possibility that “spike-directed antibodies induced by vaccination may also trigger autoimmune conditions in predisposed individuals” as it has been shown that “severe cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection are characterized by an autoinflammatory dysregulation that contributes to tissue damage,” which the virus’s spike protein appears to be responsible for.

Spike proteins may circulate in the body after an infection or injection with a COVID-19 vaccine. It was assumed that the vaccine’s spike protein would remain mostly at the injection site and last up to several weeks like other proteins produced in the body. But studies are showing that is not the case.

The Japanese regulatory agency’s biodistribution study (pdf) of the Pfizer vaccine showed that some of the mRNAs moved from the injection site and through the bloodstream, and were found in various organs such as the liver, spleen, adrenal glands, and ovaries of rats 48 hours following injection.

In a different study, the spike proteins made in the body after receiving a Pfizer COVID-19 shot have been found on tiny membrane vesicles called exosomes—that mediate cell-to-cell communication by transferring genetic materials to other cells—for at least four months after the second vaccine dose.

The persistence of the spike protein in the body “raises the prospect of sustained inflammation within and damage to organs which express the spike protein,” according to experts at Doctors for COVID Ethics, an organization consisting of physicians and scientists “seeking to uphold medical ethics, patient safety, and human rights in response to COVID-19.”

“As long as the spike protein can be detected on cell-derived membrane vesicles, the immune system will be attacking the cells that release these vesicles,” they said.

Dr. Peter McCullough, an internist, cardiologist, and epidemiologist, wrote on Twitter that the Swedish study’s findings have “enormous implications of permanent chromosomal change and long-term constitutive spike synthesis driving the pathogenesis of a whole new genre of chronic disease.”

Whether the findings of the study will occur in living organisms or if the DNA converted from the vaccine’s mRNA will integrate with the cell’s genome is unknown. The authors said more investigations are needed, including in whole living organisms such as animals, to better understand the potential effects of the mRNA vaccine.

“At this stage, we do not know if DNA reverse transcribed from BNT162b2 is integrated into the cell genome. Further studies are needed to demonstrate the effect of BNT162b2 on genomic integrity, including whole genome sequencing of cells exposed to BNT162b2, as well as tissues from human subjects who received BNT162b2 vaccination,” the authors said.

3-2 VOTE TURNS UNANIMOUS FOR VIOLENT CONTENT IN LAME POSTING

SHALL WE START OFF WITH A DISCLAIMER? This is a DIM LAME aka Did It Myself Lew’s Almost Music Expression”. I’m not a musician, but a senior citizen who late in life discovered how much fun self expression can be with a guitar, keyboard and handheld digital recorder, but again, am not accomplished with any of it, but it’s still rather enjoyable. Takes a lot of time, but something about this process is rewarding for some reason and I suspicion it has a lot to due with channeling otherwise useless energy wasted on frustration and anger into something that, not only expresses those emotions, but provides a context with which to explain precisely why they exist (granted, mostly about corrupt and contradictory politics, policies and activities by “pubic service agencies and their agents” and the obvious conspiratorially focused attempt by the Radical Left (and their supporters) to destroy the America I, and most of you have always believed, and continue to believe.) I digress.

Unfortunately the entire LAME process (at least to reach the point where I am willing to share these substandard productions with the public) takes a great deal of time especially when tech challenged as I am. Often I must “short hand” a project just to remember the darn thing. I don’t read and write music so all I have in the creation process for a record are the lyrics I type and what is produced doing it. Make sense? Sure, shouldn’t be that difficult for someone who must know about 10-15 almost chords now? lol

Anyway, if I don’t abuse the guitar and keyboard enough to patch together a draft project idea on the recorder while it’s still functioning in my grey matter and bouncing around in recognizable electric charges, it will be gone. Still find numerous jotted notes of great ideas but are not much help in putting the concept together in a presentation. (Yes I know….maybe God’s will viewers are not further tortured? lol)

SEE? I can’t even make a simple disclaimer statement without venturing off into other realms….. OK,

THIS 22CALINTHEi is only one small snippet of a much larger presentation, (the entire website is obviously the actual presentation) and believe me, this storage space issue is a BIG PROBLEM. Just don’t have the space for huge audio/video files and those that do furnish the space can also control content, which defeats the entire purpose of self expression if it runs afoul of what those others believe so any conceivable ugliness gets first priority in censorship.

Shortly after my problem with YouTube and the scrolling of “FUCKING CIRCUS” in reference to Washington DC policies, my website experienced a drop from between 500-800 views a day (sometime hovering in the four hundred area, other times jumping up close to a 1,000. I know this because part of my morning ritual was to check the site, compare temperatures between here and Nevada, check the news, and start my day. Just a morning routine that left a history from which I could see the dramatic difference. Again, if someone can provide you with something, they can also take it back.

THIS IS WHERE THE LEFT MAKES A BIG MISTAKE, THEY BELIEVE GOVERNMENT PROVIDES THE FREEDOM AND THEREFORE IF THEY STOLE THE GOVERNMENT THEY COULD TAKE BACK THE FREEDOM. (Psst, because they are for the most part GODLESS!)

AH OH…..they forgot one little detail which most Americans believe:

THOSE ARE GOD GIVEN RIGHTS TO LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS not a government grant.

Sure there’s tyranny and a host of other bad things traitors and thieves can do with something rightfully belonging to another AND AMERICA BELONGS TO ALL THE PEOPLE and from what I have observed, the current commander and thief has very little support for his Anti-American policies from THE PEOPLE.

It is all a matter of time, and time is on the PATRIOT’S SIDE.

Anyway,……

THIS LAME DOES NOT PROMOTE VIOLENCE BUT DOES POINT OUT THE FACT A SMALL CALIBER BULLET IN THE RIGHT PLACE IS FAR MORE LETHAL THAN A MUCH LARGER BULLET IN THE WRONG LOCATION. IT’S AN OLD EXPRESSION.

22 CAL IN THE EYE? ACTUALLY RATHER LIKE A MIRV

No different logic than what practiced on the geopolitical front and why the former Soviet Union was permitted so many more ICBMs and SLBMs (Intercontinental and submarine launched ballistic missiles) with significantly much larger nuclear warheads (and greater blast areas) than the United States arsenal during the SALT treaties (Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty).

The MAD theory at the time (mutually assured destruction) was that since the USA MIRVs were so much more effective and accurate at hitting potential targets (multiple, independent re-entry vehicles where multiple warheads were expelled from the same missile and each with a predesignated target already loaded in the computer program. The Russians at the time were still in the MRV arena where, although they also had multiple warheads, they were not independently targetable and more like a shotgun that broadcasts lead pellets – they fall where they fall.) So in order to achieve parity, and eliminate the USA advantage, Soviets had monster missiles with much larger nuclear warheads – so essentially making up for the lack of precise targeting at that time. (Who knows where it all is now with all the espionage?)

So this is good? Both sides can destroy and blast the other one into oblivion (multiple times no less) which was somehow equated to:

NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD RISK DESTRUCTION OF THE ENTIRE PLANET IF BOTH COULD DESTROY EACH OTHER WITH ASSURANCE!

MAD was the perfect acronym. One side could more effectively destroy military installations, the other could likely destroy the installation and a whole lot of collateral civilian damage as well as an added deterrent. Yup, mad.

ALSO…. I do not condone or suggest bad people be assaulted and beaten up while on the toilet or sleeping in bed either. But it happens. That’s also a very old wartime strategy of catching your enemy “off guard”. Still, pretty ineffective as a solution for the whole problem this country is currently facing – eliminating particular individuals might assist the public in believing accountability is at hand, (or just make you warm inside) but is not a viable solution from the “SWAMP CORRUPTION” as it currently exists.

Just something to think about SO IF AFTER LISTENING to 22CALINTHEi and any viewer is overcome with the urge to begin surveillance of public restrooms for the off chance a top federal official might stop by to urinate or drop a biden, or are currently attempting to figure out a way to sneak into a leftist’s bedroom and provide a surprise WAKEUP CALL FOR THE WOK, ….. DON’T DO IT! lol

OK, that’s it – there is absolutely no encouragement to violate God’s or man’s law by committing violence and harming/dispatching other people just because they are lowlife leftist infiltrators attempting to destroy Our America. There are legal methods addressing that as I blah blah blah right now. Patience is a virtue. So, remember, just some harmless observations, put to almost music, which continues on whether viewed or not! lol

NOW BACK TO THE REGULARLY SCHEDULED MAJOR BREAKING NON NEWS HEADLINE STORY……:)

***
A contentious band member vote regarding whether to post proposed LAME “22inthei” finally met with unanimous band approval after concluding “non violent alternatives” would also be (eventually) presented in 22inthei’s short but violent response to the current criminal assault on America and her legal citizens by the Radical Left which is evidently currently in control of Washington DC.


Long time founding band member “Keep it curt Curtis” known for his often violent lyrical expressions in condemnation of what he claims to be “the current appointed leftist administration” was pleased with the final decision.


“Guess you could say I advocate and support a “reciprocity of violence” policy and believe the history of our freedom in this country reflects the reality that such a position can be extremely successful – especially when consistently followed with unwavering enforcement. “Don’t tread on me” exemplifies the same attitude.” Keep it curt, Curtis , Mar2022

Further inquiries as to whether his traditional “strike back” attitude depicted in much of his past LAME material –

  • (inside sources had earlier reported that in the LAME tune “TRANQ’d OUT- The Simple Answer” https://youtu.be/0DM0FGycBlY “, other members eventually cajoled Curtis into the accepted revision of “non lethal” control of rioters and looters utilizing Tranquilizer darts rather than jacketed 5.56 rounds spinning towards targets referenced in his initial draft recording which has never been made public at band request.)

was actually socially responsible during such turbulent times in America but was only responded to with a big smile and a laughing “you’re fucking kidding me right?” as he sped off in his internal combustion petroleum powered pickup spraying gravel as he fishtailed out of the parking lot in a cloud of dust.

According to internal band agreement documents, the below posted “22inthei draft” may be posted for now but with the understanding additional “nonviolent alternatives” will be subsequently updated to the continuing project when available and time permits.

The following lyrics were objected to by other band members who contend although the website is notorious for “attempted humor” in the form of juxtaposing various elements of the “current human condition” it is a fallacy of logic to perceive only guns are responsible for violence.

This project expression in no way was a serious attempt by Curtis to foster or encourage further violence but rather, an “in progress comedy based offering” as to the vulnerability of any human to potential injury or death by a host of causes far less effective in destroying an enemy when compared to the stolen capabilities of a world government for mass murder with more traditionally recognized dire threats such as nuclear, biological or economic warfare, to name a few, and used against a betrayed domestic citizenry.

No, we are not happy with the words Curtis chose to express his growing frustration and anger with what is happening to the United States of America and her citizens, and we share that concern and disappointment. His words may arguably be seen as inappropriate by some on the surface yet drill down just a bit and the absurdity of chasing individuals around for some type of vigilante justice in a bathroom or bedroom is revealed as nonsensical – because after all, your entire once glorious nation and everything you believed in is literally being destroyed from the inside out by a cancer of hardcore traitors with only hatred for this country. Perhaps Curtis did not go far enough?

Be that as it may, without some solid evidence to the contrary, it is just that, merely frustrated expression “to vent off some steam” without the requisite intent or desire to harm anyone, much less those lying fother mucking leftists unlawfully holding positions of public trust who were appointed by individuals and entities that successfully rigged the 2020 presidential election.

Agree or disagree, the facts coming out about that manipulated election (and the misinformation/disinformation also slowly coming out about the entire COVID-19 CCP biological attack and our failed government response – denying life saving proven medications for an EUA experimental non-vaccine?) are truly shocking revelations and represent a clear and serious threat to the continued survival of this nation…..

yet there are those who would rather focus on simple words accompanying “almost music” which might possibly represent some form of crude home grown justice for these traitors to America – or that there might be people out there so stupid or foolish to believe Curt’s lyrics were indeed in someway communicating to them personally and commanding them to track down these low-life traitors to America and sneak up on them while they’re on the toilet or sleeping in bed — and cold blooded murder them? Seriously?

Don’t suppose you have their email address or telephone numbers yeah?

“LEFTIST TURDS” & REGULAR SKUNKS

I must get outside – but first…..

ever notice how those who consistently lie and cheat usually have some common “standby” self defense technique? Like when they get caught “in the act” telling untruths but defensively and quickly charge that the entire matter was only a “conspiracy theory” and therefore meaningless and unworthy of consideration?

“Sneaky Pete” Kampa tried that crap with me after an LDPCSD board meeting years ago. Hilarious! I had been talking about this same old 40+ year Place of Use fraud issue and how the District was actively working with other individuals and agencies within the state and federal government against the very interests of the 99% of legally entitled water users of the subdivision (per water license 11395 held by the Merced Irrigation District).
Kampa made some crack about my being a “conspiracy theorist” but before the board chuckles and dismissive comments had faded I had one very important and to the point question for KAMPA.

THANKS SNEAKY PETE! WHAT AN OPENING!
I was so pleased he brought up that worn out “knee jerk” defensive accusation often used by such miserable lying little cheats when they get backed into a corner compliments of their own history of dishonesty and dirty dealing. Walking right up to the dais (behind which Kampa was seated) I stood there and while looking ‘ol “Sneaky Pete” right in the eyes I asked him:

“DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT A CONSPIRACY IS?”

HIS LOOK SAID IT ALL
Seriously, I kid you not! The look on KAMPA’s face was priceless. Who knows how many times that little POS (PIECE OF SHIT) special interest operative had accused others of such a thing just to immediately distract from the seriousness of whatever topic was being discussed at the time?
SKUNKS & LEFTIST TURDS BOTH UNDERSTAND
Consider, whether words or a shocking odor, all a perpetrator in trouble requires is a quick distraction, a small moment in time in which to escape the perceived danger…… yup, rather like when a skunk sprays his defensive odor.
EVER GET HIT?
Not just smelling that well known odor, but having the spray droplets actually touch your own body or clothing? Truly, it is a shocking experience! Almost like electricity hitting you – you’re momentarily stunned – likely in shock and by the time you realize you’re OK and just got “skunked” and will survive (that stuff can burn soft tissue also!) that little rascal is long gone and safe from whatever it sensed was a danger. Extremely effective non-lethal defense. lol
MAGIC WORDS OF ESCAPE
So too, when these leftist turds get caught up in their own dishonorable activities in a public setting and someone begins to logically analyze exactly what they have done and are continuing to do, the “turd” senses the formation of this “truth net”, (where escape will be impossible without admitting contradictory activities), so they instinctively, (due to countless past successful deployments of the maneuver), pivot, point and distract with accusations that the matter is only a “conspiracy theory” and therefore meritless for further discussion.

Generally during a public meeting such a question could never be asked and even if it were, would not be answered as the “lead turd” merely scoots off to another business item on the agenda with carefully scripted and well performed management tidbits to cajole support for further misdirection. No different than the smelly little skunk who scrambles back to their safe, comfortable burrowed home in the earth which has never, ever, not even once, hinted of any obnoxious odors. (aka, skunks don’t smell their own holes. lol)

THE QUESTION WAS ASKED AFTER THE MEETING

While the bored of defectors and their professional “CSDA SPECIAL INTEREST ECONOMIC HIT-MAN” were still dismissing my arguments with giggles and chuckles regarding legitimate questions based on a substantial documented history of unethical and dishonest activities by good ‘ol “sneaky Pete” Kampa) – “this management turd” suddenly realized he could not simply escape and move on to the next agenda item. He openly accused me of being a “conspiracy theorist” (this happened more than once but during meetings) so I asked him: “DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT A CONSPIRACY IS?”

THE LOOK ON KAMPA’S FACE…..
one of extremely subdued shock and surprise – like realizing a squeezed out fart had been accompanied with some unanticipated anal leakage!

KAMPA HAD NO IDEA WHAT
A CONSPIRACY EVEN WAS!

My best to you and yours, Lew


* Apparently our current GM doesn’t either.

“NO BORDER BIDEN” PROUD OF THE LDPCSD “BORED OF DEFECTORS”? 022720022 UP DATE

UPDATE NOTE: Yup, had to correct some spelling errors (regieme?) what a pain! Had to photo shop the “eme” out of the original file, retype the “me”, save, upload and replace. While checking for other errors and making minor corrections (while still in the post editor after inserting the new photo) before I knew it I was adding to the post! lol

Sorry, I don’t normally like to do this – (stressful) so this is just a head’s up on some additional blah blah blah being added to the existing traditional worn out repetitious blah blah blah.

LDPCSD & ENTIRE NATION

The LDPCSD (Lake Don Pedro Community Services District) http://ldpcsd.org is an excellent example as to how government, ostensibly created “by the people for the people” https://wwnorton.com/college/history/america7_brief/content/multimedia/ch11/research_01b.htm), can be incrementally hi-jacked (aka insidiously stolen) from the intended control by the “tax paying, benefit-entitled legal citizens”.

So what happens when “the people” just sleep, or incorrectly trust, or are distracted, infected, misdirected, de-platformed, internet throttled, effectively silenced, etc,., and essentially continue to allow dishonest individuals to pursue their own personal political and societal goals while “serving the public”?

OUR GOVERNMENT is surreptitiously re-configured into a Frankenstein-like system which promotes, protects and hosts a network of various parasitic criminal players (and their organizations) all operating within the presumed legitimate government structure.

Nestled in the complex processes and procedures of traditional government these “traitors” comfortably and successfully camouflaged themselves within an expanding environment of special interest contradictory decisions, policies, and operations. The best part for these local low level “bad actors” is the complete lack of responsibility and accountability for their intentional violation of law, unethical activity and complete betrayal of MR WECs (Merced River Water Entitled Customers) of the Lake Don Pedro residential subdivision. (Such a government at the next level (when complaints are received) will deny any responsibility for the corruption and laughingly respond with the typical solution of “then just vote them out of office it’s YOUR DISTRICT” neglecting the fact the entire voting process had been setup to discourage and prevent the “people’s voice” from realistically being heard or acted upon. Just look at the revelations only now coming out regarding the 2020 presidential election fraud and FAKE IMPEACHMENTS of a FORMER PRESIDENT for doing what was best for AMERICA FIRST. Think about that next time grocery shopping or fueling your vehicle or maybe purchasing new batteries for your electric ride.)

Personally, I prefer the descriptive amalgamated form of the words “California” (the once beautiful and proud state) and “confusion” as the best nickname for this choreographed state betrayal:

CALIFUSION”.

How can that be? One might reasonably ask.

Because the LDPCSD BOARD OF DEFECTORS serve the same government corruption that created their “elected/appointed” positions in the first place with the formation of a COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT that by design and function actively violates every defining and desirable characteristic of a California Special District (CSD)!

Ooops! Sorry, CALIFUSION SPECIAL DISTRICT! lol

Institutionalized FRAUD!

What are the characteristics of a California Special District anyway?  A limited public service; a defined geographical service area; a specific class of designated customers, and the service is provided for only the cost necessary in delivering that service to the customer, yet all four characteristics in our CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICT have been ignored in favor of beneficial exploitation for LAFCO ANNEXATION DEVELOPMENT PROMOTERS  and all to the detriment of the MANDATORY LDPCSD CUSTOMERS WITHIN THE RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISION.   Imagine, all the decades of expensive turmoil only continued by the same organizations that formed the LDPCSD in the first place back  in 1980.   Apparently this was all an intentionally designed trap for the “deep pocket” designated LDP property owner.  Creating a community services district with a deep pocket MANDATORY CUSTOMER BASE OF INNOCENT LAKE DON PEDRO PROPERTY OWNERS WHO ARE FORCED TO SUBSIDIZE AN EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM TO CIRCUMVENT MERCED RIVER WATER PLACE OF USE RESTRICTIONS IN 11395 FOR LAFCO ANNEXATIONS INTO THE LDPCSD THAT NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN APPROVED 20 YEARS AGO ACCORDING TO LAFCO’s OWN REGULATIONS?   LAFCO RESOLUTION 76-4….

LAFCO Resolution 76-4? (Can’t read it now? BS!)

Fortunately, prior to Mariposa County making such information “unavailable” on their public website (and physical office) I had already obtained and scanned many of the documents for posting on this website. However, when attempting to obtain some other critical “pieces of the ANNEXATION PUZZLE” the information was denied and the website access cut off.

Anyway, if LAFCO had followed their own established guidelines approved four years prior to the formation of the LDPCSD, well, this DECADES LONG NIGHTMARE OF DECEPTION AND BETRAYAL WOULD NEVER HAVE OCCURRED! Imagine, if those public employees had simply followed their own fucking rules like they FORCE citizens to follow regulations……. https://lakedonpedro.org/?s=lafco+76-4

<BELOW>

IS some of my OLD Blah blah blah on the same subject matter –

you know, that’s another great aspect of telling the truth – older information will always remain relevant and I don’t have to go back and change ANYTHING to conceal deception!

CERTAINLY NOT THE SAME SITUATION FOR THOSE WHO INTENTIONALLY LIE AND CHEAT

Individuals, (and the entities within which they “work and exploit”), who misrepresent truth and fact (commonly recognized as lying their asses off and being deceitful) cannot simply re-post or use as a reference their past material without meticulously going over it and checking for

THE LATER REVEALED FALSE STATEMENTS AND DECEPTIONS UTILIZED TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS.

They must first locate, review, and then remove any uncomplimentary or contradictory information to prevent the public at large from recognizing the obvious deceit and trickery used to achieve whatever the goal was at the time.

They can not allow “evidence” of their past lack of integrity and duplicity to be publicly acknowledged because of the irrevocable harm it might do to their public reputation and community trust which would negatively affect other future endeavors – perhaps even legitimate ones.

The fact that decades of public records (documenting Mariposa County LAFCO PROPERTY ANNEXATIONS into the LDPCSD) have been prohibited from public inspection, review or acquisition is called a BIG CLUE.

https://www.mariposacounty.org/1438/LAFCo-Resolutions

As I recall other LAFCO resolutions were still available regarding other districts, but now all are unavailable between 1966-1995. (Problems with all annexations at the time, or that it looks better if all are unavailable rather than just the LDPCSD? Who knows but those involved?) 2005-2019 resolutions all appear to be accessible, but WHERE ARE 1995-2005 resolutions? Unless of course there were absolutely no resolutions at all during that nine (9) year period. I do recall there was a moratorium by the State on annexations for a while but didn’t know what that timeline was – perhaps this is it? If so, seems to me a note on the Mariposa website might be in order to explain the situation, yeah? Perhaps, “no LAFCO annexations were approved during this period due to ,……”. Definite lack of TRANSPARENCY the public is told all government entities practice.

If those properties were legally annexed into the LDPCSD why prohibit an investigation into what was actually done back then that has unequivocally resulted in 40+ years of major community turmoil and wasted resources here in Lake Don Pedro?

Also, to my knowledge (as of 2-27-2022 @ 0943hrs), the Merced Irrigation District 1993 “shape file”map (from a proposed major subdivision project in the mid 1990s which was abandoned when Pete Kampa was employed here the first time), the one Pete Kampa utilized on his “SECOND TOUR OF EMPLOYMENT CORRUPTION WITH THE LDPCSD” to produce his FAKE DIGITAL POU MAP EXPANDING DISTRICT SERVICE BOUNDARIES – and that was staged to surreptitiously replace the legitimate POU MAP on file with the State Water Board (thanks to KAMPA OPERATIVES WORKING WITHIN THE WATER RIGHTS DIVISION), has never been seen by ANYONE other than KAMPA and those involved with such an outrageous conspiratorial scam to defraud already victimized LDPCSD customers even further! Anyway, here’s some of that older material. phew!

Don’t forget to exit the following long string of older posts (if you select the “Part II Mar 18th 2019 LDPCSD BODM” post LINK) to return to the current ranting blah blah blah! lol (LINK didn’t turn out as anticipated.)

Honestly though, this is EXACTLY WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR ENTIRE COUNTRY RIGHT NOW! LACK OF RESPONSIBILITY BY THOSE IN TRUSTED POSITIONS AND NO ACCOUNTABILITY WHEN THEY ARE FINALLY CAUGHT CHEATING THE PUBLIC.

TAKES TIME TO GET INFORMATION CHEATERS DON’T WANT CITIZENS TO SEE!

These directors only follow instructions from the special interests that control them and this fraud of a CSD since formation over 40 years ago.

THEY DIDN’T WANT OUR SUBDIVISION LAND WITH ENTITLED WATER
ONLY OUR SUBDIVISION ENTITLED WATER ON THEIR LAFCO ANNEXED LAND!

So with LAFCO (who through the decades approved many nonsensical annexations into their CSD district that could not legally provide the water for proposed developments) and assistance from the CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS ASSOCIATION (where former GM “Sneaky Pete” KAMPA has been a 20 year Board Director), the LDPCSD is now doing exactly what it previously said it would never do: provide new service connections outside the POU using extremely expensive groundwater wells WE WERE TOLD WERE ONLY FOR EMERGENCY DROUGHT USE (that’s what the government grant was intended to provide and such new water connections were SPECIFICALLY PROHIBITED from being made with that grant money for developing new groundwater sources. Lies and cheating through the entire process.

So many “tricks” and “deceptions” used by these crooks. POU in water law terminology stands for PLACE OF USE, always has but guess who changed the traditional MIDPOU (Merced Irrigation District Place of Use) name to further confuse the issue? (Heck, the name change suggestion came from the Merced Irrigation District itself holder of Water License 11395 no less!) Here’s the link for some POU information on the ldpcsd.org website titled: OPU Restrictions

Call it POU or OPU – the policy was/is the same.

HOW QUICKLY THEY CHANGE POSITIONS IN THE DARK

Yet in a recent board meeting ( https://www.ldpcsd.org/files/0bf56c9d8/2022-2-22++Spec+Meeting+Agenda+Packet.pdf – on page 28) the General Manager apparently recommended in writing that the board violate existing LDPCSD policy and serve EVEN MORE of our emergency drought groundwater outside the Merced Irrigation District Place of Use for Merced River Water! This is the real reason our rates will continue to go up – subdivision property owners are subsidizing a groundwater substitution service to circumvent the water license and furnish water to MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO annexations into the LDPCSD that NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN APPROVED IN THE FIRST PLACE! https://lakedonpedro.org/?s=lafco+76-4 (Consider this, one proposed 900 acre residential subdivision was concealed from the public view for over 20 years until shortly before PETE KAMPA was unethically returned to finish his annexation scam by securing government grants for development of groundwater sources. And MR WECs continues to pay more for their water than is necessary.)

Only MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO working with “UNETHICAL AGENTS” within the LDPCSD (and likely TUOLUMNE COUNTY LAFCO also officials – however, Mariposa County was the lead agency in the formation of the LDPCSD) could have possibly pulled off a scam like that!

Imagine, concealing an entire proposed residential subdivision for over twenty years until PETER KAMPA was brought back to finish the secret deal by obtaining government grant money for drought emergencies by misrepresenting the actual service boundaries of the LDPCSD to qualify!

And that was only one of about seven proposed subdivisions that all required the LDPCSD to provide our ENTITLED SUBDIVISION WATER to properties outside the legal service area of the Merced Irrigation District Place of Use for Merced River Water.

PETER KAMPA actually stated that continued development outside the POU should proceed and the district would simply develop more 1/2 million – 3/4 million dollar groundwater wells when water consumption began to exceed production. FUCKING UNBELIEVABLE STATEMENT MADE IN A DROUGHT PRONE REGION!

These leftists will sell water outside the POU until we need more 1/2 million – 3/4 million dollar ground water wells. It’s all about making money for the “right people” while degrading MR WEC’s water quality and service and passing all additional costs to the “DEEP POCKET” OF ALL SUBDIVISION PROPERTY OWNERS. This is INSANE! (Unless intentionally trying to destroy yet another COMMON SENSE POLICY!) Open borders? Selling emergency drought water? Demented Joe would likely be very pleased.

Yeah I know, I wasn’t going to bother with these low-life lying deceiving cheats anymore but this is simply wrong and the fact our current GM is now following in the same disingenuous CSDA steps as SNEAKY PETE KAMPA, (even creating a new district for the area) well, I can’t remain silent and watch this scam continue. More later as I’ve got some other stuff that must be done.

WANT TO HELP SAVE AMERICA FROM OUR NATION’S CURRENT LEFTIST DEATH SPIN? Start at home – learn the facts and what such special interest cheats have been doing for 45+ years here in your own backyard. Won’t get better until we make it better with the truth!

Here’s an interesting and informative re-post regarding the “climate change movement” and what it might actually be doing: https://climateguilt.wordpress.com/2021/02/05/the-fraud-of-climate-change-and-the-drive-for-control/

Consider this one quote from the above post (there are many excellent points):

“If a community takes the grant, they accept the restrictions. In short, they must implement the guidelines of Agenda 21. In the back rooms of city hall and the state legislature, your government officials work hand-in-hand to write policy with the very NGOs which created Agenda 21.”

Receiving grants might be good in some respects (although we were told the groundwater source was specifically for EMERGENCY DROUGHT USE ONLY AND NOT CREATING NEW SERVICE CONNECTIONS and selling that emergency water outside the entitled subdivision), but when Pete Kampa intentionally lied and submitted false information about our actual service area and dismissed the POU restrictions contained in WL11395 in order to obtain that grant money, the LDPCSD was set on a deceitful journey that will not end until the truth is finally revealed and appropriate corrections made.

My best to you and yours, Lew

PS:

Why do you think the official LDPCSD water service boundary area map (approved by the California Public Utilities Commission during LDPCSD formation approval) has been missing for over 40 years?

Why was the LDPCSD formed by Mariposa County LAFCO shortly (one month) AFTER the State of California declared Merced River water fully appropriated?

Why do you think the original map filed with the state was a fraud with expanded service areas (which was later corrected with the legitimate map by the State Water Board)?

Why are all public records of LDPCSD annexations prohibited from public viewing and/or acquisition?

Why did the State Water Rights Division repeatedly attempt to close an investigation based solely on erroneous information provided by the actual responsible violator Pete Kampa?

Why were no criminal charges brought against those who attempted to substitute Pete Kampa’s fabricated digital map with the legitimate POU MAP on file with the State Water Board?

Why are laws no longer enforced against intentional criminal acts and conspiracies to violate established law?

Why have I not stopped writing and started that other work?

Maine Doctor Ordered to Undergo Psych Evaluation for Prescribing Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine

Dr. Meryl Nass was hailed a hero by veterans for helping them expose the connection between the military’s mandatory anthrax vaccine and the serious illnesses they were experiencing.

The 70-year old Maine internist has given Congressional testimonies in four states on vaccine efficacies, deciphered scientific studies for courts, and served as an international national consultant on biological warfare and pandemics for more than three decades.

Last month, the Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine suspended Nass’s license and set a string of conditions for her to meet in order for her to get her license back, including undergoing a psychiatric evaluation, releasing a list of every patient she has seen in the past 6 months, and answering more than 25 questions about her medical beliefs, even asking her how she advertises her practices.

Nass, who has been in practice for 41 years, called her suspension “a tyrannical witch hunt.”

“The whole purpose of suspending my license was to scare doctors around the country not to go against the government’s narrative that the COVID vaccine and mask mandates are good,” Nass told The Epoch Times.

Dr. Meryl Nass (Courtest Meryl Nass)

Members of the state license board did not return numerous phone calls from The Epoch Times for comment about Nass’s case.

Nass joins doctors and physician assistants in at least 10 states including Kansas, Florida, Hawaii, Washington, Texas, and Arkansas who have had their license suspended or found themselves under investigation by their state’s medical license board.

According to the state’s complaint, the Maine board’s harsh scrutiny of Nass stems specifically from three legal prescriptions she wrote for ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

The patients didn’t complain about the prescription. All recovered from the virus. One complaint came from a Twitter user, another from a hospital doctor, and a third from a midwife associated with the same hospital. The midwife complained about Nass’s prescription of hydroxychloroquine to a pregnant woman.

The board also accused Nass of spreading “misinformation” about the pandemic by way of her personal blog, writing that she posed a “danger to the public.”

Nass certainly does not hold back on her blog. In announcing she would livestream the CDC’s Feb. 4 ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices) hearing, she wrote “the same cast of characters who lie, cheat and befuddle us with the poorest quality federal science ever invented, will be back tomorrow. Don’t miss their weasel words. Watch how they try to turn myocarditis into the mildest malady known to man.”

She added, “Watch how the CDC turns those who have taken the Oath of Hippocrates into robotic Hypocrites who merely want to transform your children into SpikeVax factories.”

According to documents obtained by The Epoch Times, the Maine board originally gave Nass until Feb. 1 to undergo its directive that she undergo a neuropsychological evaluation, which was to be conducted by a psychologist of the board’s choice and paid for by Nass.

“Failure of Dr. Nass to undergo the evaluation as directed constitutes an admission of the allegations against her,” the board wrote in its order.

Nass told The Epoch Times that she has yet to undergo the ordered evaluation or complete any of the other conditions set by the Maine board.

She emphasized that prescribing Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine is not against the law, but the state said it is unethical.

In a joint statement issued last April, The Maine licensing board along with the state Board of Osteopathic Licensure warned that prescribing alternative drugs to prevent or treat COVID-19 “may lead to stockpiling of medication, inappropriate use, and potential drug shortages for patients with a legitimate need” for the medication. They drew the conclusion that “absent acute or emergency circumstances,” prescribing the drugs “is considered unethical and unprofessional conduct” and that “it may also violate applicable Board rules.”

“These are made up policies from nowhere,” Nass told The Epoch Times, “they should be [a] wake up calls to Americans—from local towns to state boards—the government is using them to replace the law and the Constitution.”

Nass said she fears her days as a doctor in Maine are numbered and that she suspects the board’s intentions may be to make sure she can’t get a job as a doctor anywhere else.

Nass told the Epoch Times on Tuesday that she just learned the Maine licensing board has already submitted her name to National Practitioner Database, the Laurie-list version for discredited doctors.

Nass, however, is still a hero at least to some in the northern reaches of Maine where she ran her private practice.

Daniel Lorey, a recently retired hospital clinical social worker who worked closely for many years with Nass at MDI Hospital, recently wrote a letter to the editor published by the Bangor Daily News in which he called Nass an “impeccable MD” with clinical skills “second to none.”

Lorey said Nass prescribed him “life-saving medication” to help him combat COVID-19 last October.

“I am quite convinced that her early interventions and timely prescriptions saved my life and limited my hospitalization to a brief two-hour emergency room visit,” Lorey wrote.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Feb. 7 declared a heightened terrorism threat due to “false and misleading narratives,” misinformation, and “conspiracy theories.”

“The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors,” the DHS bulletin said.

The agency did not say what foreign or domestic actors are responsible for the alleged proliferation of misinformation or disinformation.

“Mass casualty attacks and other acts of targeted violence conducted by lone offenders and small groups acting in furtherance of ideological beliefs and/or personal grievances pose an ongoing threat to the nation,” the DHS continued, adding that some individuals are seeking to “sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions.”

Some individuals, the bulletin alleged, are calling for violence against critical infrastructure, faith-based institutions like churches or synagogues, colleges, government personnel or facilities, and other targets.

As an example of key factors that allegedly contribute to the heightened threat environment, the DHS said there are misleading narratives surrounding COVID-19 and claimed that some individuals have used COVID-19 mandates or vaccines to carry out attacks since 2020. The agency did not elaborate or provide additional evidence for its allegations. The DHS also listed online claims of election fraud as a contributor, and it also did not provide additional details or evidence.

The agency said that “foreign terrorist organizations and domestic threat actors continue to amplify pre-existing false or misleading narratives online to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions. It said violent extremists, including the individual who recently launched an attack against the synagogue in Texas, highlight “the continuing threat of violence based upon racial or religious motivations, as well as threats against faith-based organizations.”

The ISIS terrorist group and its affiliates “may issue public calls for retaliation due to the strike that recently killed ISIS leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi,” the bulletin said. The Biden administration announced last week that al-Qurayshi was killed during a raid in northern Syria.

The bulletin also made note of alleged recent threats to black colleges and universities across the United States.

“Domestic violent extremists have also viewed attacks against U.S. critical infrastructure as a means to create chaos and advance ideological goals, and have recently aspired to disrupt U.S. electric and communications critical infrastructure, including by spreading false or misleading narratives about 5G cellular technology,” the bulletin continued.

The DHS said the heightened threat alert will expire on June 7, 2022.

‘There’s No Law’: Physician Experienced in Investigating Biological Warfare Challenges Medical Board’s Misinformation Allegation

Though Dr. Meryl Nass, a board-certified internal medicine physician, has been untangling narratives of dis- and misinformation long before COVID-19, it wasn’t until recently that her license was temporarily suspended under the allegation that she is now spreading it.

Her research has brought her before Congress and state legislatures to give testimonies on bioterrorism, Gulf War syndrome, and vaccine safety.

Throughout her career, she’s consulted for international health and intelligence agencies regarding prevention, investigation, and mitigation of chemical and biological warfare and pandemics.

She spent three years investigating what had been deemed a naturally occurring anthrax outbreak during Rhodesia’s civil war.

Nass was able to prove that it was due to biological warfare, with her findings published in a 1992 paper that marked a new achievement in scientific research.

“This was important because it was the first time in history potential perpetrators learned they could be identified,” Nass told The Epoch Times. “You couldn’t just start an epidemic somewhere and assume that no one was ever going to prove it because there wasn’t any scientific way to prove that it was done. I established that way.”

She was the main author, along with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (author of “The Real Anthony Fauci”) and Children’s Health Defense, of a citizen’s petition to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and its vaccine advisory committee regarding the authorization of COVID vaccines and why she said they’re not suitable for children.

As censorship and disinformation have thickened around the COVID narrative, Nass has followed and written about the suppression of early-treatment medication such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin.

Given this background, the Maine Medical Board of Licensure nevertheless saw it appropriate to charge Nass—a physician for 41 years—with misinformation, an allegation that came with no explanation as to what misinformation she was spreading.

“Never before has any censorship been imposed by a collection of organizations who are attempting to make law by whining in unison about misinformation with threats to licenses and board certifications—while there is no legal mechanism by which they can strip certification,” Nass said.  “There are no rules, regulations, or laws underpinning the threats of punishment for ‘spreading misinformation.’”

The Maine Medical Board of Licensure didn’t respond to The Epoch Times’ request for comment.

Inducement

Five matters were reviewed by the board regarding Nass’s suspension.

There are two allegations that she was spreading misinformation.

In addition, a doctor reported that she had treated a patient with ivermectin, while someone else reported that she had prescribed hydroxychloroquine.

In one matter, when asked by the pharmacist why she was prescribing hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, she told the pharmacist that it was to treat Lyme disease.

“By fall, more and more pharmacies were refusing to dispense these medications if you were giving them for COVID, so every time I wrote a prescription for these drugs, the pharmacist would ask why I’m giving it, which they normally didn’t do,” she said. “If I said COVID, they wouldn’t dispense it.”

It was during this time that she was trying to obtain hydroxychloroquine for a high-risk patient.

“So, when the pharmacist called and asked why I was ordering the medication, I told them for Lyme disease, and therefore the patient was able to get the drug,” Nass said. “Five minutes later, I wrote the Maine Medical Board of Licensure and told them that my patients can’t get a potentially life-saving drug unless I tell a white lie, which is unacceptable.”

The board then used this to accuse her of committing “a serious crime.”

“Not a single one of these matters alleges that a patient was harmed or that I did anything illegal, apart from telling a white lie to a pharmacist,” she said.

However, there is another charge to be considered that should be applied to the medical boards, she said, which is inducement.

Inducement is a legal concept alluding to the creation of circumstances that cause someone to have to go against the law to prevent a worse problem.

“And I self-reported it to the board immediately after I did it, asking them to please change their policies so no one would have to be placed in this position again and we could go back to focusing on the care of patients primarily,” Nass said.

Psychological Evaluation

In addition to having her license suspended, Nass must undergo a psychological evaluation to get her license back.

“I guess they claim I’m crazy for prescribing ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine or for writing articles about problems with the vaccine,” Nass said.

By ordering a neuropsychological evaluation, Nass’s name gets sent to a national physician’s database, which she said is the “blackest mark” a doctor can get and makes it impossible for her to get a job or license in another state.

“The other thing it does is it allows all the records that I have sent to the board to enter the public domain, resulting in some of the medical records of my patients being repeated in media reporting on the case,” Nass said.

Nass hadn’t been seeking publicity, however, those records accessed through public domain were now cast into the limelight.

Nass suggested that the evaluation could also be an attempt by the board to punish her for challenging what she called the board’s self-appointed authority to create a new crime—the spreading of misinformation without defining what misinformation is—and charging her with it.

Fraudulent Studies and Media

The vagueness of the allegation shifts with time, as public officials like Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases were at one time stating that one couldn’t contract COVID-19 after being vaccinated, a claim that could currently be classified as misinformation.

Nass cited several instances in which fraudulent studies picked up by media resulted in the manufacturing of misinformation, such when The Lancet medical journal published a May 2020 observational study claiming that hydroxychloroquine significantly increased mortality.

The Lancet report contributed to a widespread stigma surrounding hydroxychloroquine, however, The Lancet later retracted the study.

Nass details how the suppression of hydroxychloroquine was accomplished in her article “How a false hydroxychloroquine narrative was created, and more,” which can be found on her website “Truth in the Age of COVID.”

On ivermectin, she pointed to misinformation generated by Rolling Stone last year.

The magazine sourced a local media outlet that cited Oklahoma physician Jason McElyea who claimed that people overdosing on farm-grade ivermectin were causing emergency rooms to fill up, leaving no room for gunshot victims.

Rolling Stone updated its article after a spokesperson at Northeastern Health System Sequoyah—where McElyea said the overcrowding was taking place—said McElyea hadn’t worked at that location in over two months, and that the hospital hadn’t treated any patients experiencing complications from ivermectin.

‘There’s No Law’

“There’s no law about misinformation,” Nass said. “The First Amendment gives you freedom of speech, and the Fourteenth Amendment specifically prohibits states from abridging those rights that the U.S. Constitution has given.”

Because of this, Nass said, the Maine medical board can’t suddenly enforce a law prohibiting misinformation.

“Also, laws are made in the legislature,” she said. “That’s the purpose of legislatures. And then agencies issue rules and regulations to carry out those laws; however, there is no law or rule on the books at a federal or state level about misinformation in the medical sphere.”

However, a group of non-profit medical organizations began issuing warnings in the fall of 2021, threatening physicians with license suspensions if they spread misinformation about COVID-19.

‘Bloated Nonprofits’

The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), a non-profit organization that Nass said has no regulatory authority, is an organization to which state medical boards pay dues and depend upon for policies and training, Nass said.

In July 2021, FSMB issued this statement warning that physicians “who generate and spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation or disinformation are risking disciplinary action by state medical boards, including the suspension or revocation of their medical license.”

Medical boards such as the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Pharmacists Association followed suit.

“All of these organizations have presidents who earn about a million dollars, so they are what I call bloated nonprofits,” Nass said. “None of them had authority to threaten doctors’ licenses or their specialty certifications.”

After the non-profit organizations applied pressure, 15 of the 70 U.S. state medical boards began investigating their local doctors, Nass said.

The Misinformation Inquisition

In September 2021, the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners adopted FSMB’s statement.

After one board member asked who will determine what constitutes misinformation, a staff member referred to an investigative process that would require the doctor to show proof from “recognized” academic and medical journals that support the doctor’s opinion.

Later, Tennessee state Rep. John Ragan said the board didn’t have the authority to create a new disciplinary offense without lawmakers’ approval.

The board pulled the statement from their website, but the question remained as to whether the board would continue to investigate and charge physicians because some have argued that there isn’t a precedent for the board upholding a policy that was not published on its website.

Ragan, a Republican who is chairman of the Government Operations Committee, the oversight committee for the board, told The Epoch Times that the adopted policy moved out of “the guardrails of the law” and gives the board arbitrary judgment on what misinformation is.

“I explained that if they are going to have a policy on this sometime in the future, they need to define what misinformation and disinformation are because otherwise what you have is the Inquisition,” Ragan said.  “It then becomes a situation of, ‘Heresy is what I say it is, and I’ll know it when I see it kind of thing.’”

In October, the Tennessee legislature passed a bill that emphasized the legislature’s role in drafting laws that establish disciplinary offenses regarding dispensing and prescribing medication for COVID-19.

‘They Have Invented a Law That They Refuse to Define’

While some lawmakers argued that legislators aren’t elected to oversee medically educated boards, Nass argued that the board members and staff are working for the state to assure the safe practice of medicine.

“Their role is to carry out the law, not invent new laws, which is the role of the legislature,” Nass said. “Not only that, they have invented a law that they refuse to define. None of the organizations, like the FSMB or AMA, or state agencies that have threatened or suspended doctors’ licenses, has had the courage to put into writing how they define misinformation and disinformation.”

Nass asked, “Do you want to live in a state that says the law is what we think it is, but we’re not putting it in black and white?”Matt McGregorReporter Follow Matt McGregor covers news from North and South Carolina for The Epoch Times. Send him your story ideas: matt.mcgregor@epochtimes.us
