“Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration took action approving and authorizing for emergency use updated COVID-19 vaccines formulated to more closely target currently circulating variants and to provide better protection against serious consequences of COVID-19, including hospitalization and death.
Today’s actions relate to updated mRNA vaccines for 2023-2024 manufactured by ModernaTX Inc. and Pfizer Inc. Consistent with the totality of the evidence and input from the FDA’s expert advisors, these vaccines have been updated to include a monovalent (single) component that corresponds to the Omicron variant XBB.1.5.
What You Need to Know
Individuals 5 years of age and older regardless of previous vaccination are eligible to receive a single dose of an updated mRNA COVID-19 vaccine at least 2 months since the last dose of any COVID-19 vaccine.
Individuals 6 months through 4 years of age who have previously been vaccinated against COVID-19 are eligible to receive one or two doses of an updated mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (timing and number of doses to administer depends on the previous COVID-19 vaccine received).
Unvaccinated individuals 6 months through 4 years of age are eligible to receive three doses of the updated authorized Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine or two doses of the updated authorized Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.
The FDA is confident in the safety and effectiveness of these updated vaccines and the agency’s benefit-risk assessment demonstrates that the benefits of these vaccines for individuals 6 months of age and older outweigh their risks.
Individuals who receive an updated mRNA COVID-19 vaccine may experience similar side effects as those reported by individuals who previously received mRNA COVID-19 vaccines as described in the respective prescribing information or fact sheets.
THINGS TO PONDER:
These clowns waste no time in screwing things up worse than they did before…
Just when you thought that you’d seen it all, the same “government officials” who lied to you about “safe & effective” and “if you get it, you won’t get COVID” are now telling you that their answer to a variant is there “updated vaccine.”
Here’s the issue:
Notice that it’s emergency use.
That means they can just throw stuff together, bypass any meaningful testing, and try to get you to take it.
It also means that if something bad happens to you because you take their poison, you’re screwed.
If there was ever a time to Know Your Foe… It’s right here and right now.

“Google has exploited its dominance of the internet search market to lock out competitors and smother innovation, the Department of Justice charged Tuesday at the opening of the biggest U.S. antitrust trial in a quarter century.
‘This case is about the future of the internet and whether Google’s search engine will ever face meaningful competition,’ said Kenneth Dintzer, the Justice Department’s lead litigator.
Over the next 10 weeks, federal lawyers and state attorneys general will try to prove Google rigged the market in its favor by locking its search engine in as the default choice in a plethora of places and devices. U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta likely won’t issue a ruling until early next year. If he decides Google broke the law, another trial will decide what steps should be taken to rein in the Mountain View, California-based company.
Regulators also charge that Google has illegally rigged the market in its favor by requiring its search engine to be bundled with its Android software for smartphones if the device manufacturers want full access to the Android app store.
‘Google’s contracts ensure that rivals cannot match the search quality ad monetization, especially on phones,’’ Dintzer said. ‘Through this feedback loop, this wheel has been turning for more than 12 years. It always turns to Google’s advantage.’
THINGS TO PONDER:
What are the odds that this trial ends with Google paying a settlement… And continuing to do what they’ve always done?
Given the government’s track record of prosecuting innocent people, doing a really bad job of actually bringing guilty parties to justice, and a cozy relationship with big tech, we’re thinking settlement!
Know Your Foe.
“At midyear, Zions Bancorp reported holding $8.5 billion in brokered deposits, an obscure but costly banking industry product that is drawing attention from regulators. At this time last year, the Salt Lake City-based bank had practically none.
Many industry players view brokered deposits as a double-edged sword. They can be a quick and easy way for a bank to shore up its balance sheet. The deposits are typically much more expensive because banks have to pay higher interest rates to lure in those customers, along with other fees. Regulators and bankers say they are also a type of “hot” money that is prone to disappear when a bank hits a rough patch, since these yield-seeking customers don’t tend to be loyal.
U.S. banks collectively held more than $1.2 trillion in brokered deposits in the second quarter, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. The total marked an 86% increase from a year earlier.
Brokered deposits are what they sound like: A bank can go to a third-party broker such as Morgan Stanley or Fidelity to find customers to invest in the bank’s high-yielding certificates of deposit. That allows the bank to get big influxes of money at once, rather than customer by customer.
Lots of banks are loading up on them—a sign of the distress that continues to afflict many lenders who now must compete for customer funds they long took for granted.
Brokered deposits remained a relatively small percentage of total deposits at these banks. But at some smaller regional banks, such as Associated Banc-Corp and Valley National Bancorp, brokered deposits accounted for more than 10% of domestic deposits, a level that can make regulators wary.
The FDIC can charge higher insurance fees to banks that have high concentrations of brokered deposits.
