MP named Agent Z on Kanye's Donda Album
I need to start this note off by sharing that as a hyper-observant zoomer millennial, having the ability to write notes into the show is one of my greatest pleasures. I love trying to parse what I see, and I think on things at a very deep level. If the show ever is in need of an official zoomer, I'd like to throw my hat in the ring. Just call me Agent Z.
It needs to be shared (especially to our non-millennial producers) that Kanye West's new album, Donda (named after this late mother), represents a possible paradigm shift for people in my general age group. The album is a masterpiece with effortlessly cool sound and a very clear message. Listening to it on the first pass was the first time I've felt inspired by art in a long time, certainly in the past 2 years. I might sound like a fangirl (believe me, I'm not) or like I am over-reacting to hype, but I am being serious when I say that every single song out of the 27 tracks pack a gut-punch to sellout culture, censorship, the new wave of fascism, cancel culture, and the nihilism that has been instilled in the millennial generation and beyond. He is clear in his message that cancel culture is bullshit, and we need to treat it as such. Let me give you a few examples, though I urge everyone to open their minds, regardless of their music taste, and give it a thoughtful listen. Remember that Kanye preformed on SNL wearing a Make America Great Again hat, he's not afraid and he's not out to make friends.
The album has many religious references and undertones. I urge everyone, regardless of religious belief or lack thereof, to consider God and religious stories as METAPHORS rather than literal. Whether you believe in God or not, it is foolish to not consider that biblical stories and messages are some of the oldest stories of humankind; and are a culmination of principals and lessons to help people see and understand the fabric of reality. Good and evil exist in constant opposition. That is clear everywhere you look, across all spans of time. So I urge everyone to think of God and the devil as simply representations of good and evil for this purpose, as it will make the messages in the music much more clear.
I might start a Substack just so I can reflect on the message behind every song, but I'll keep it short and give just two highlights. Almost every lyric to the song very appropriately titled "Off the Grid," points to the fake, toxic, and censored society we're now living in. Some lyrical highlights being: "If you got a voice, then you gotta project it, If you got a wrong, then you gotta correct it, if you gotta name, you gotta protect it" and "I gotta make sure they know who they messin' with, I gotta tell 'em "sorry," they too delicate."
The song "Believe What I Say," uses a "vibe-worthy" melody, which is so genius because no one can deny the song is catchy...paired with these clear lyrics:
"You were too easily fooled, so easily deceived
By some dude who's more rather into greed
Played by your emotions, you were swamped by your needs
Told me, I didn't believe, you said I was out to deceive, ahaha
You said that I lie, how did I? I told you everything, didn't I?
But you just could not believe, man, I'm so peeved
Your friends all up in your head even when we're in bed
Your mind's elsewhere, and you say you care? Haha
I'm laughin' at you all, you think you got me? No, no
My back ain't against the wall (The wall, the wall, the wall, the wall, the wall)"
I mean...can it get any more blatant than that?! There is so much more that is notable, but I won't spoil it all. They try so hard to paint Kanye as crazy, but he knows exactly what he is doing. They're just afraid of him.
I know John says that he doesn't think millennials are waking up, but that has not been my experience. I have witnessed my friends become red-pilled over the past year at an unexpected rate. Kanye's new album is not to be ignored. Even if some sheep won't get the message, it broke Apple music records with 60 million streams in the first day. I have faith more artists will ride the wave, just like I have faith that my peers will rise above.
As always, thank you for your courage!! My spirits are high and my gratitude is abundant.
2017 Journal of Antibiotics: Ivermectin: enigmatic multifaceted ‘wonder’ drug continues to surprise and exceed expectations
NA Pharmacists BOTG
***if you use this content I need to be only referred to as the No Agenda Pharmacists***
I hope this email finds you well! It's been awhile since I've been able to contribute content for the show but I do have one thing for you today and am going to try and give it a go and write you a No Agenda White Paper on some sarscov2 stuff. It was a few weeks ago but I recall you reading a letter from either an NP or an MD talking about ivermectin and how they didn't know or understand how it could even help. I know they were being truthful and frustrated and confused, and their amygdalas are obviously normal sized if they are sending it notes and donations, and I feel an obligation to put something together. I can't promise it for the second Thursday show this week but I'm going to try.
Please see the attached image file of a screenshot of a thread on the ASHP (American Society of Health System Pharmacists) forums regarding vaccine mandates.
In it you have the President of APhA (American Pharmacist's Association) as well as the Director of ASHP speaking of how they are not interested in the topic of Informed Consent at all, and there's maybe 2 or 3 pharmacists in the whole thread who aren't all in with mandatory vaccinations.
This is a quote from one of them, named Jill:
"You have the right to refuse the vaccine. Your employer has the right to set the conditions for employment. If you don't meet those conditions you don't have a right to work for that employer."
I think it's important for the public to see how some pharmacists think about mandates and I would appreciate any amplification you could give on this issue.
WIRED: Better Data on Ivermectin Is Finally on Its Way
Studies have been small and often not great. The best info so far says don’t use it, get vaccinated, and hang in there for the more promising meds being tested.
EDWARD MILLS CAME to the meeting last month with very good data. A clinical trials expert at McMaster University, Mills was presenting new results from a trial that is looking at how well half a dozen different drugs treat Covid-19—not for the people so sick they’re in the emergency room or the hospital, but in people whose symptoms haven’t gotten that bad yet. People sick at home, in other words.
At his online talk, put on by the National Institutes of Health, Mills’ slides told the tale: A relatively safe, familiar, cheap drug reduced the relative risk of mild Covid getting worse by nearly 30 percent. The drug is fluvoxamine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor—an antidepressant. (It’s also an anti-inflammatory, and inflammation and an overreacting immune system are hallmarks of serious Covid infection, so that might be why it seems to help). Get a bunch of people with Covid and randomize them into two groups; 739 get fluvoxamine and 733 get a placebo. Only 77 of the fluvoxamine-takers end up in the hospital; 109 of the placebo group do. This is exciting.
Its time to thanks the vaccinated for their courage in this experiment and stop the vaccinations immediately

Boots on the ground in Manhattan — restaurant vaccine mandates
After NYC and mayor De Blasio made a huge deal out of requiring vaccinations to enter restaurants, I want to provide a boots on the ground report. As you'd expect, it's not exactly as revolutionary as they made it sound.
I've been to 3 restaurants and a bar in the last week. The 1st restaurant, a high-end place in Hudson Yards, didn't ask to see any vaccine verification. The bar nearby also did not; though it did have a bouncer checking IDs. At the 2nd restaurant, the hostess asked if we had vaccine proof, and said she'd check after we sat down. Unsurprisingly, she never did. At the 3rd, they were checking vaccine cards and comparing to your ID at the door. The people in front of us were actually turned away. (The irony here being that the restaurant is mostly an outdoor courtyard.)
Between my 3rd restaurant experience and what friends have told me, even the places that are strictly enforcing vaccines aren't actually requiring that you use your "Excelsior" pass. You can show a picture of a vaccine card on your phone -- which, of course, takes about 60 seconds to fake in a PDF editor.
Best of all of course is that there is still no vaccine requirement for outdoor seating sections, or for any other establishment where you'll spend time in close contact with people like a grocery store or any other retail environment. And because vaccines are now "mandatory" in restaurants, people feel safer and mask usage is even lower than before. Especially among staff.
So as usual, this was a lovely bit of PR for New York for one news cycle and it doesn't actually make any difference in the fight to "stop the spread." For all of the discussion of NYC being filled with woke drones following all of the rules, it's unsurprising that people are in general just getting on with their lives and not following the edict.

BOTG Japan Corona and Immunizations
ITM again Adam.
I wanted to give you a quick BOTG report on what’s going on here in Japan at the moment.
Japan has had several deaths due to the Moderna vaccination.
But the government is trying to keep the internet at bay.
All the while the numbers are not so bad here, right?
With the Olympics now officially over (there was something going on in Tokyo??) Lol, and the numbers spiking all during the Olympics, they were all but ignored in order to continue the games and attempt to salvage every last yen out of them.
And with the PM set to resign because he says he doesn’t have the energy to tackle the Corona Virus problem.
All the best to you guys, keep up the great work.
I’m still working on something for you for a BOTG report for all of Asia. Due out soon after John’s book is released. :)
