Televangelist to Pay $156,000 to Settle Case Over Fake Covid Cure

Introduction:
GALENA, Mo. (Courthouse News) — Televangelist Jim Bakker and his Morningside Church will pay $156,000 in restitution to Missouri customers who bought the preacher’s Silver Solution product after he claimed it was a cure for Covid-19 on his national TV show.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced the settlement Wednesday morning, which prevents Bakker from selling or advertising Silver Solution as a way to diagnose, prevent, mitigate, treat or cure any disease or illness.

“Today I’m pleased to announce that the Missouri Attorney General’s Office has obtained a consent judgment against Jim Bakker and Morningside Church Productions that results in $156,000 in restitution and strong safeguards to prevent the marketing of ‘Silver Solution’ as a cure or treatment for Covid and other medical issues,” Schmitt said in a statement. “My office will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of Missouri consumers, and will not hesitate to take action when those consumers are being defrauded.”

Stone County Circuit Court Judge Alan Blankenship officially signed off on the consent judgment Tuesday afternoon.

Bakker’s attorney, Derek Ankrom of Spencer Fane in Springfield, Missouri, said in a statement Wednesday that the pastor and his church “are pleased to have concluded this matter amicably so that they can continue the important work of Morningside Church.”

Clearly the reason is because the microchips in the vaccines deactivate the virus's programming

Nearly all COVID deaths in US are now among unvaccinated
Nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now are in people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been and an indication that deaths per day — now down to under 300 — could be practically zero if everyone eligible got the vaccine.

An Associated Press analysis of available government data from May shows that “breakthrough” infections in fully vaccinated people accounted for fewer than 1,200 of more than 853,000 COVID-19 hospitalizations. That’s about 0.1%.

And only about 150 of the more than 18,000 COVID-19 deaths in May were in fully vaccinated people. That translates to about 0.8%, or five deaths per day on average.

The AP analyzed figures provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC itself has not estimated what percentage of hospitalizations and deaths are in fully vaccinated people, citing limitations in the data.

Among them: Only about 45 states report breakthrough infections, and some are more aggressive than others in looking for such cases. So the data probably understates such infections, CDC officials said.

^^^Which immediately raises the question in my mind of how do you reconcile this graph with the graph W. J. Fox posted on June 23, 2021?

I suppose one angle would be to look at what measures are being taken holistically, versus more focused measures. Just from my own very limited sampling of friends as reinforced by Facebook connection, those who seem to hesitate the most in getting vaccines also tend to live in more rural areas and do take other precautions. It may be that those in the United Kingdom that hesitate to take vaccines tend also to be more reckless about wearing masks, social distancing etc. It will be interesting to see if any future studies come to that sort of conclusion.

Can COVID-19 Cause Diabetes?
Going off of that information, both NIH-funded studies found and confirmed infection of pancreatic beta cells in autopsy samples from people who died from COVID-19-and one of the studies suggests that SARS-CoV-2 may "preferentially infect" those insulin-producing cells

weird how nobody could figure out how to develop mRNA treatments for decades, and suddenly several nations figure it all out all at once.
