Pfizer vaccine warning, helicopters overhead and dying alone

This US Department of Energy helicopter flying between Red Mesa and Mexican Water on the Navajo Nation today was documented by Censored News using Flight Radar 24. 

Navajos and Lakotas are being infected and dying from the coronavirus at an alarming rate. Something is very wrong.

A US Department of Energy helicopter was busy flying over the Navajo Nation today. Censored News documented the US Dept of Energy helicopter over Kayenta, Red Mesa and Mexican Water. It flew out from Farmington, N.M., and landed in Page, Ariz.

Over the past week, three large planes, with their callsigns "Blocked" landed in Page, arriving from Farmington, Mesa and Salt Lake. "Blocked" callsign is most often used for the planes of the U.S. military and U.S. government.

Something is very wrong.

The pattern of coronavirus spread among Dine' and Lakota is very suspicious. Dine' and Lakota elderly are being infected and dying at an alarmingly high rate. In the past nine months, 693 Navajos have died from the virus. Now, the Dakotas have one of the highest rates of coronavirus spread in the world.

Today, Britain warned those with a history of allergic reactions not to take the Pfizer vaccines, after health workers receiving it became immediately sick.

"Britain’s medicine regulator said anyone with a history of anaphylaxis to a medicine or food should not get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, giving fuller guidance on an earlier allergy warning about the shot," Reuters reported.

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is the vaccine used in experiments on Navajos. The vaccine experiments were carried out by Johns Hopkins University researchers using Indian Health Service hospitals on the Navajo Nation and in Gallup, N.M.

The helicopter and planes over Navajoland led Censored News to ask many questions today.

Why was a non-Indian reporter for Navajo Times urging Navajos to be part of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine experiments? Vaccine experiments on high risk populations with multiple health problems are very dangerous.

The fact is that Johns Hopkins University and the drug corporations are financially benefitting and the vaccine corporations are becoming billionaires.

And why is the U.S. Pentagon funding the coronavirus plasma experiment on Navajos by Johns Hopkins? Why the U.S. Pentagon? Why not a health agency?

Why is the Navajo President giving out donated foods -- when $300 million in CARES Act relief funds were never spent? Why are charities engaging in these sideshows?

Why after so many Dine' deaths, is there no uniform delivery of food, water and health care to the homes of the sick and dying in all 110 Navajo chapters?

Why is there no home delivery of fresh groceries and life-saving water? Why are there no visiting home health nurses for the sick and dying, the type of visiting home health nurse found throughout the country?

Those who are sick and dying need fresh groceries and fresh water each week, not a random box of donated food every month or two.

People who are too sick to care for themselves need regular visiting home health care workers. Many Dine' are being sent home from hospitals too sick to care for themselves. Many elderly and struggling families are isolated without transportation.

It is unknown how many Dine' have been sent to nursing homes by hospitals, knowing they would not survive.

Dine', along with everyone else, deserve to die in dignity.

There are more than 300,000 enrolled Dine' in 110 chapters in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah on the Navajo Nation.

Dine' have suffered in New Mexico especially, where chapter houses have been closed or with limited hours during the pandemic. The suffering has been great in the remote area of Navajo Mountain, Utah, on the Navajo Nation. The largest number of virus cases, however, is in the Chinle region, in the heart of the Navajo Nation.

At least 77 Navajo chapters now have an uncontrolled spread of the coronavius.

Coronavirus spreads through WalMarts, grocery stores and schools. Virus is in Dene wastewater in the far north

WalMarts are Super Spreaders of Coronavirus -- New Mexico provides a watchlist each day of coronavirus outbreaks in schools, grocery stores and businesses. During recent weeks, WalMarts have been super-spreaders of the coronavirus in New Mexico. There are new outbreaks in schools in Native communities and grocery stores and fast food places in bordertowns.

Colorado -- More than 5,000 students in Colorado have coronavirus, and more than 500 teachers. Active spread in WalMarts, Targets, King Soopers, Costco and other grocery stores and businesses. Thousands of inmates in Colorado prisons infected with virus. Many states are hiding the facts, but Colorado and New Mexico are informing the public.

The Indian Health Service data shows that the Phoenix IHS now has the greatest spread in IHS service areas. It also shows that the Navajo IHS has fallen behind other areas in testing. Last week, the virus spread was greatest in the Great Plains and Billings areas. This week the greatest increase is in Phoenix and Navajo IHS areas. -- Censored News.

Comment from Navajo: The Navajo government has proven again its incapable handling of giving out federal money. US Treasury gave them $714 million to distribute for CARES. The Council approved measures, after Nez couldn’t even muster a spending plan, to distribute the money for government offices, individual hardship, chapters, and affected Navajo businesses and artisans. Individual hardship payments are reported to being reduced from an approved $1,500 per person, issuance is now said to be in January beyond the federal spending deadline, $62 million was taken away from chapters, and the business and artisan deadline date was moved up cutting off eligible businesses. Navajo hired professional groups to help them spend the money, yet the government still didn’t get it right. The Navajo government is great at staging and making appeals for money—professional begging. When it comes to spending what they show without fail is they don’t know how. The poverty minded officials find ways to deny money, in this case, for health and life, to its own people. Nez needs to be a grocery delivery boy with his food boxes, not a President. Give him a uniform, a name tag and a delivery truck, not an executive title. The boy needs to finish growing up. It’s the problem when you send a greenhorn to do a job above his pay grade. You expect leadership but what you get is a box of cracker jacks.
