“On Friday night I tested positive for COVID-19, and I will now be isolating in accordance with CDC guidelines. As someone with several health risk factors this is something I have been concerned about since the start of the pandemic, but I am thankful to be vaccinated and boosted,” Payne said in a statement.

“At this time I am asymptomatic and I will continue to represent my district and perform my duties remotely. COVID-19 is still a very real threat especially to people who are immunocompromised, and I urge everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated to help protect people who are at greater risk. I know that my family, friends and constituents are praying for me during this difficult time, and I’m grateful for that support.”

Neighboring representative U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-9) tested positive for the coronavirus during an Omicron surge in December.

  1. You notice all the “vaxxed” catching the Chinese Wuhan Covid during the nice weather season and how they all claim to be “asymptomatic?”

    So why would someone who feels great be determined as ill with the virus? They all repeat the mantra the failed “vax” is responsible. The data however says different in the UK, Canada’s British Columbia and in Vermont with very high “vax” rates.

    People are increasingly falling ill and being hospitalized and dying with the common denominator they were “vaxed” with the failed mRNA. The window of protection for those not killed or harmed is followed by compromised immune systems.

    Data is now showing it’s the gene therapy “vaxed” who are growing in illness, 80% in the UK hospitalized and deaths. Now they stopped maintaining that data once it hit 80%. Similar trend in British Columbia and related also in Vermont.

    The Big Lie is coming apart and we are only in “Year 2” of the failed vax. There will be more deaths due to the “vax” and subsequent health problems than the original virus. It’s already happening but the State lies are continuing. They will not be able to suppress this forever as the mortality increases outside of the virus for people in the prime of life: 18-49 is already showing up in dramatic and astounding increases to date even with the suppression campaign as here.

    The “Winter of Death” promised by Biden did not happen for those who declined to take the experimental “vax” injection. It sadly lies ahead – for the “vaxxed.” They know it and are already lying and trying to get everyone to take the injection to remove the control group of the “unvaxxed.” Too late.

    Geert Vanden Bossche warned of this tragic and needless trend and like many other global scientists who have been correct, was ignored:

    Here, the most concerning outcome of using experimental injections and widely distributing into a pandemic against all previous scientific applications are noted here:

    Good luck

      • You mean only one person in the world would know about leading global scientists pointing out issues on COVID? That would be pretty impressive, but no.

        Don’t give any credit to Horse. There are a lot of scientists globally publishing the issues around COVID and the failed vax. They are the authors reporting on these issues.

        It’s not like he’s the one who broke the story. There are global scientists who have been journaling and documenting all aspects. Geert Vanden Bossche from Belgium deserves the credit for being correct where so many have been wrong and then lying and pumping out misinformation about the failed experimental injections. Don’t falsify this and credit the Hoboken Horse!

      • Why is this scientist a “quack” when he’s been correct and Fauci, CDC and the WHO wrong? They’ve been lying to cover up misinformation.

        Guess people already forgot about the mask theater. Fauci admitted it was useless in his own email early in 2020.

  2. Dr. Vlad Zelenko treated people early with hydroxychloroquine becoming known worldwide to stop COVID. In a released UK study, he wrote:

    “The UK government admits that vaccines have damaged the natural immune system of those who have been double-vaccinated. The UK government has admitted that once you have been double-vaccinated, you will never again be able to acquire full natural immunity to Covid variants – or possibly any other virus. So let’s watch the “real” pandemic begin now! In its Week 42 “COVID-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report”, the UK Department of Health admits on page 23 that “N antibody levels appear to be lower in people who become infected after two doses of vaccination.”

    It goes on to say that this drop in antibodies is essentially permanent. What does this mean? We know that vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission of the virus (indeed, the report elsewhere shows that vaccinated adults are now much more likely to be infected than unvaccinated ones).

    The British now find that the vaccine interferes with the body’s ability to make antibodies after infection not only against the spike protein but also against other parts of the virus. In particular, vaccinated people do not appear to form antibodies against the nucleocapsid protein, the envelope of the virus, which is a crucial part of the response in unvaccinated people.
    In the long term, the vaccinated are far more susceptible to any mutations in the spike protein, even if they have already been infected and cured once or more. The unvaccinated, on the other hand, will gain lasting, if not permanent, immunity to all strains of the alleged virus after being naturally infected with it even once.”
