The Brew: Regretting the Vax, Disappearing Weapons and a Fond Farewell to Movie’s Sandy

By Al Perrotta Published on August 9, 2022

Good morning,

Today’s Brew starts with a jolt. The Biden administration is trying to criminalize its opposition, like some Third World junta. The raid on Donald Trump’s home is prelude to stopping him from running for re-election at any cost to the country. The Stream’s John Zmirak notes the parallels with … Nazi Germany.

10% Regret Vax. 15% Report New Medical Condition Since Taking the Vax

Ten percent of Americans say they regret taking the COVID vaccines. More ominously, 15% have reported a doctor-certified new medical condition within weeks or months of taking the jab. The survey was done by Zogby Analytics on behalf of Children’s Health Defense.

“The fact that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports more than 232 million Americans ages 18-65 have taken at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and 15 percent of those surveyed report a newly diagnosed condition is concerning and needs further study,” said Laura Bono, CHD’s executive director.

You’re talking some 35 million people with new conditions. Even if only 10% have anything to do with the jab, you’re talking 3.5 million people. And that’s being extremely optimistic.

As Epoch Times reports, “Of the newly diagnosed medical conditions, the most common ones were blood clots (21 percent), heart attack (19 percent), liver damage (18 percent), leg and lung clots (17 percent), and stroke (15 percent).”

26% of those surveyed said they knew someone who had a new medical condition pop up after taking a COVID vaccination or booster.

“The mRNA vaccine technology is new and clinical trials naturally have no long-term data,” said Bono, “CHD believes this survey points to the need for further study.”

One oddity. If 15% report a new medical condition and only 10% regret the vax, does that mean there are people harmed by the vaccines but don’t regret it?

70% of the Military Aid We Send to Ukraine Up and Disappears?

Joe Biden keeps shoveling our money and weapons to Ukraine. Unfortunately, only about 30% of that bounty reaches its final destination. That was the conclusion of Jonas Ohman, CEO of the Ukraine aid organization Blue-Yellow.

Osman tells CBS News in their documentary “Arming Ukraine” that his organization struggles to work around “power lords, oligarchs, and political players” to get the military aid where it’s needed.

CBS News itself expressed “concerns about weapons falling into Ukraine’s black market, which has thrived on corruption since the collapse of the Soviet Union.”

Is the U.S. government bothered? Apparently not. When both Sen. Rand Paul and Ukraine-born Rep. Victoria Sparz pushed to have some accountability, they were called stooges of Putin propaganda.

So who is Biden actually arming with our weapons … unintentionally or intentionally?

Yeah, we include intentionally. This is the same gang that helped overthrow assorted governments with assorted color revolutions during the Obama years … and of course had no problem giving Mexican drug gangs weapons via Fast and Furious. How soon are the weapons that didn’t make it going to be pointed at us?

The good news: CBS News just updated their story. Osman says the percentage of weaponry getting through has “significantly improved” since the documentary was filmed in April.

The bad news: Biden just pledged yet another billion in weapons to Ukraine. The largest military package yet.

80-Year-Old Woman Banned From Her YMCA Because She Didn’t Want Transgender Dude in Locker Room With Undressing Little Girls

On July 26, 80-year-old Julie Jaman of Port Townsend, Washington, was in the locker room of the Mount View pool, which is run by the Olympic Peninsula YMCA. “I saw a man in a woman’s bathing suit watching maybe four or five little girls pull down their suits in order to use the toilet,” Jaman told Seattle radio show host Dori Monson on Friday. “I asked if he had a penis and he said it was none of my business. I told that man to ‘get out right now!’”

Up until five minutes ago, this spry senior citizen would have been hailed as a hero. But you know how this story goes in 2022. Jaman alerted a staffer of a grown male hanging around the undressed little girls as they went to the bathroom. The staffer called her “discriminatory” and banned her from the pool. The staffer called the cops. The Olympic Peninsula YMCA soon permanently banned her from the facilities she’d been using for 35 years.

But Jaman isn’t going quietly. According to the Port Townsend Free Press, Jaman has organized protests at the pool.


Forever Sandy: Olivia Newton-John Passes Away at the Age of 73

We cannot finish the day without saying goodbye to Olivia Newton-John. The Aussie pop singer forever remembered as the good-girl Sandy in the movie version of the musical Grease passed away Monday at her Southern California ranch after a decades-long battle with breast cancer. She was 73.

Her husband John Easterling made the announcement on Facebook.

Olivia had several chart-topping hits before being convinced to take on the role of Sandy Olsson in the 1978 film, winning over international audiences with her good-girl image, winsome smile and distinct voice. “I Honestly Love You,” “If Not for You,” “Let Me Be There” and “Have You Never Been Mellow” being just a few of her classics.

After Grease, she continued recording, including the smash “Physical,” which has become a work-out staple. In recent decades, Newton-John has been very public with her battle against breast cancer. A few years back, there were even stories that she was on her deathbed. But she fought back. Said Easterling:

Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer. Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer.

We pray for her husband, daughter, family members and friends. And we remember the sweetest voice to ever set foot in Rydell High:
