Despite the fact that fracking has proven safe, PA Gov. Tom Wolf has banned new drilling on state lands, supported decisions to ban production in the Delaware River Basin, and is attempting, through executive action, to force Pennsylvania into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).

Many Canadians travel abroad to get the health care they need. Craig discusses one case of a mom who lost two children while waiting for health care.

TCI would have imposed a regionwide cap, trade, and tax system over Northeast states to force people out of their cars. It would have raised the cost of driving similar to the way the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative has raised the cost of electric power. Connecticut is stagnating and losing population and businesses due, in part, to his high regulatory and energy costs. These programs have nothing to do with protecting the environment but a lot to do with paying off key constituencies. Politicians want to appear green without actually being green.</p> 301.

Since January 1, 2020, Dr. Fauci participated in 354 television, radio, podcast, and online interviews, including lectures, panel discussions, speeches, and press conferences. This doesn’t include his book deal, forthcoming documentary, early pandemic press conferences with Donald Trump, and his current twice-per-week conferences with Joe Biden’s COVID-19 task force.</p> <p>As the director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Fauci is the highest paid person in government, yet he seems to be spending more time on P.R. than on science.

Can this be attributed to the mass vaccine campaign, or are a number of Americans naturally immune to the disease? If they are, why is it important they know?</p> <p>Joel Hirschhorn, is an investigator and author of <em>Pandemic Blunder</em>, who has researched and writes about natural immunity in Trial Site News. Hirshhorn says that the Washington establishment is standing in the way of facts. Instead of pushing vaccines, health agencies need to be checking first who has natural immunity to COVID-19. Hirschhorn explains why a vaccine on top of natural immunity can cause health complications and how individuals can find out their immunization status. Hirshhorn also gives his thoughts on the escalating scandal involving Anthony Fauci and new evidence that suggests his health orders were driven by political reasons.</p> <p>Read more:</p> <p><a href="https://trialsitenews.com/more-pandemic-corruption-refusal-to-fully-recognize-natural-immunity/">More Pandemic Corruption: Refusal to Fully Recognize Natural Immunity</a></p> <p>Trial Site News, June 13, 2021</p> <p><a href="https://heartlanddailynews.com/2021/06/t-cell-testing-could-show-more-widespread-immunity-to-covid-19/">T-Cell Testing Could Show More Widespread Immunity to COVID – 19</a></p> <p>By Ken Artz, Health Care News, June 16, 2021</p>
