You Are Wrong if You Believe all Vaccines are Safe and Effective

During the past two years, a paradox we have heard repeated by the White House, and our health agencies are the warnings and fears about the threats of the SARS-2 contagion. This fear mongering has been framed as consensual scientific facts that is non-negotiable. Topping the list is the propaganda that the Cvoid-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and inexpensive repurposed drugs such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin are ineffective and dangerous. Being presented as facts, they no longer warrant debate and it is our duty as responsible citizens to simply accept our government’s 24-7 advertisements throughout the mainstream media. Those who question the narrative are labeled as enemies of science. Thousands of physicians and medical experts who disagreed with Biden, Fauci, and the CDC’s Rochelle Walensky have been excoriated as anti-vaxxers, perilous distributors of misinformation, and systematically censored from social media. Efforts to bring scientific debate into the halls of Washington by Senator Ron Johnson are denigrated. Sen. Johnson has been wrongfully ridiculed for hosting only opponents of the official narrative and patients suffering from severe vaccine reactions in his televised hearings. The media fails to report that Johnson invited over a dozen mandatory vaccine proponents, including Paul Offit, Peter Hotez and senior officials from every federal health agency who either declined to participate or ignored the invitations altogether. If you deeply believe you are in the right and you have a dominant position of strategic advantage over your opponents, there is no incentive to engage in any kind of conversation where your weaknesses may become publicly exposed. 

Questions over vaccine efficacy and safety have been with us for several decades. Yet during the past couple years we no longer hear any discussion about previous vaccine risks.  In the meantime, the nation’s autism rate has increased to 1 in 40 children compared to the previous 1 in 59 rate reported by the CDC in 2018. The autism-vaccine controversy has not disappeared; it has only gone underground, and we need to think very carefully about injecting small children starting at 2 years of age with experimental gene therapy drugs alongside the 16 other multi-dose vaccines administered to children before the age of six. In the mean time, our health officials and the overarching medical establishment has been mesmerized by collective group think to stand firm with a single script. For decades this hypnotic trance of scientific denialism has functioned as a vicious feedback loop to perpetually reinforce their biases. Our dozens of investigative reports questioning vaccine efficacy and safety and the politics that keep this mythical narrative alive shows that very legitimate questions remain unanswered for the majority of vaccines currently on the market. Unfortunately, these vaccine falsehoods have been carried into the political and economic efforts to mandate experimental gene therapies that have not been adequately tested and analyzed.

This is despite the fact that the Covid-19 vaccines have contributed to more serious injuries, permanent disabilities and deaths than all previous vaccines combined during the past thirty years. A quick search on the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) reveals that during a 14 month period, the Covid vaccines were 49 times deadlier than the influenza vaccine per the number of doses administered. Between 2008 and 2020, over 1.7 billion flu shots were administered – approximately 140 million per year. This accounted for 137,533 adverse reports and 663 deaths. Comparing that with the near 550 million Covid vaccine doses, or one third of the number of flu shots given in less than a tenth of the time frame, we find 742,179 adverse events and 10,423 vaccine-induced deaths. If this were any other vaccine or drug, it would be immediately removed from the ciruculation. Debate would be unnecessary. And these are only the adverse event figures pull from the official data found in VAERS, which we will see are grossly underreported.

The US federal health agencies and their media advocates for mandatory vaccination consistently repeat a dangerous mantra that has no warranted basis in medical science.  This monolithic industry, now a massive network of private corporations and government institutions, all supported by a compliant media, force us to believe that science has finally settled the debate over Covid-19 vaccine safety and efficacy.  All the data is in, so we are told. No further research and discussion is necessary because aside from very rare adverse effects, such as myocarditis and thrombosis, vaccines pose no worrisome neurological and immunological risk to infants, children, pregnant mothers, adults and the elderly.  This is stated as official decree. But this official storyline is founded upon flawed premises and a naive understanding about the complexities of the human body and its multifaceted immunological system.

The narrative’s fallacy is actually quite simple. Valid science is never settled.  The myth of “settled science,” which is especially endemic to the biological and medical sciences that rely heavily on private financial interests rather than intellectual curiosity, is sheer propaganda.  Valid science, on the other hand, constantly seeks new discoveries to acquire further knowledge and greater understanding. The pursuit to fully comprehend the complexity of our biological, immunological and physiological systems is in a perpetual regress. Today’s justifications for medical intervention, whether by drugs or vaccines, eventually become tomorrow’s barbarities as science further penetrates the hidden functions and operations of the human organism.  Hence valid medical research should elicit new questions and not settle upon incomplete facts that are then proselytized as universal truths. However, government and its pharmaceutical allies want to stamp out both scientifically based skepticism and public uncertainty once and for all by repeating irrational absolutist claims. As we will see, the grand mRNA gene therapy experiment to wage a war against Covid-19 has moved out of the controlled clinical trial setting and into the public domain. This medical experiment has gone global; it has become a reality-TV game show pitting the righteous and compliant vaccinated population against the unvaccinated who are to be shamed and blamed for perpetuating the pandemic. 

During the past year since the Covid-19 vaccines were launched, there is growing evidence that these experimental shots have categorically failed to curb the pandemic. Positive caseloads have been worse under Biden than under Trump, despite the over-reliance of faulty PCR testing to monitor accurate infection rates in 2020. Now that the CDC has officially phased out PCR testing for SARS-CoV-2, we know PCR also failed to distinguish between coronavirus and influenza infections, which may account for the mysterious decline in flu rates and deaths to near zero during the past two years. There is no scientific rationale for a natural biological mechanism to account for influenza’s decline other than inaccurate testing, institutional neglect to monitor the flu season or the reclassification of flu and other respiratory illnesses as Covid cases. 

New variants such as Omicron, which health officials claim will require booster shots as a sole defense, did not have to follow the present course. There was no sound scientific reason to ignore effective prophylactic and early treatments for SARS-2 infections in order to put the nation’s full attention and resources into experimental vaccines. Consequently, it comes with little surprise that the original vaccines have had minimal effect, if any, to reduce the new variants. Even the most fanatical pro-Fauci media outlets, such as CNN, PBS, NPR and the New York Times have had to call Biden’s and our health officials’ policies into question in order to maintain any journalistic credibility. There are numerous examples from other countries’ national policies to dramatically reduce serious progression of SARS-CoV-2 infections. If a treatment strategy had been followed at the start of the pandemic, Covid-related deaths would have been effectually reduced and the virus may never have reached pandemic levels. However, US health agencies were direly unprepared to confront a pandemic caused by a new viral strain.  They were also grossly negligent to follow and act upon the available medical data on inexpensive repurposed drugs. Rather, their focus was focused on developing a vaccine and as a consequence, the US, UK and Canada became exemplary models of institutional medical ineptitude. Their health policies are a lesson of what should never be done to lessen the threats of a pandemic. 

Evaluating benefit versus risk ratios to determine anti-pandemic measures is a subjective exercise fraught with inherent and confounding biases by those who conduct the analysis. There are no proven objective means to accurately determine whether benefits outweigh risks or vice versa. This is especially true for the novel experimental Covid-19 gene therapies, which have been relabeled as vaccines. Before receiving the FDA’s green light for emergency authorization use, the trials were cut short by vaccinating the studies’ control group who received the placebo.  

An unusual anomaly happened during the Moderna and Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine clinical trials in 2020 that violates conventional medical standards. The placebo control groups were not carried through to their full conclusion. Contrary to common sense and clinical protocol, placebo participants were vaccinated long before the trials’ completion. In effect the vaccine companies wiped out any potential clinical trace to properly observe and evaluate long-term adverse vaccine events. Their trials became null and void, and no post-trial data will ever be forthcoming about their long-term risks. Therefore, it is imperative that those who are unvaccinated remain so. It is not incorrect when critics argue that the premature release of these mRNA drugs is a global medical experiment.  Vaccine trials have moved out of a controlled clinical setting and have entered real life.  To conduct a robust medical trial to determine the safety and efficacy for any drug or vaccine, a control group is essential.  Now the world’s unvaccinated are the placebo control group for all future epidemiological studies that will eventually deconstruct the official Covid-19 narrative, which has destroyed the quality of life and livelihood of millions of Americans, and perhaps billions worldwide. As long as there remains a notable percent of unvaccinated persons in a population, this global experiment can continue. Sound evidence is building that the rhetoric behind mandatory mask wearing, social distancing and vaccination will implode eventually. However, if governments succeed in vaccinating every citizen, the experiment will come to an end and the truth will never be scientifically confirmed. It will be a new normal to build back better a world overseen by digital technology and surveillance. Since there is very little chance to bring a halt to these experimental mRNA therapies, it is crucial to keep this real-life trial alive by supporting the individual rights of unvaccinated populations and the opponents of vaccine mandates.  

There are no reliable algorithmic models that government funded research relies upon to keep the propaganda mills churning in order to accurately evaluate the vaccines’ risk versus benefit ratio. Biases are intrinsically built into these methodologies. Results are only as good as the data selected to serve as the base criteria. Little credence can be given to any report that the benefits of vaccination against SARS-2 outweigh the risks.  To our knowledge none of these modeling studies have included the growing number of Covid-19 vaccine injuries and deaths. Nor are they able to properly determine vaccine ineffectiveness.  For this reason we now find a wide variety of competing data behind warring narratives.  Massachusetts and Vermont have the highest vaccination rates of nearly 90 percent, yet both states are reporting their highest rates of SARS-2 cases.  Similarly professional athletic teams such as the NFL, NBA and NHL have near 100 percent vaccination compliance yet positive test results are skyrocketing. Throughout the country, and in the most vaccinated nations such as Israel and the UK, doctors and health professionals working on the ground consistently report that the majority of symptomatic cases, and even hospital and nursing home deaths, are among the fully vaccinated. 

The CDC acknowledges that the Covid vaccines are contributing to anaphylaxis, thrombosis, thrombocytopenia syndrome, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, myocarditis, pericarditis and death. Yet despite reports from around the nation and overseas, the government continues to make every effort to convince us that these adverse effects are extremely rare. Based on this false assumption, the CDC has found an excuse to ignore the inclusion of accurate vaccine adverse event data into its benefit-risk analyses.

A recent review of VAERS data conducted by Columbia University estimated that there were upwards to 187,000 vaccine-related deaths during a seven-month period between February and August 2021. This is a twenty-fold increase over the CDC’s figures.  The Columbia researchers expressed their greatest concern about vaccinating children. The report states, “the risks of Covid vaccines and boosters outweigh the benefits in children, young adults and older adults with low occupational risk or previous coronavirus exposure.”  They also concluded that VAERS is unsuited for estimating life-threatening events or vaccine-induced fatality rates.

A separate VAERS analysis by Dr Jessica Rose at the Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge in Israel estimated that the US’s actual vaccine death rate is 140,000 and vaccine injuries are 41-fold higher than that reported by the CDC.  In addition, there is an enormous backlog of vaccine injuries entered into the database from their original source that have yet to be officially recorded.

Over the years, the CDC’s VAERS has been criticized as an inaccurate system for evaluating the safety profile for any given vaccine and to monitor actual rates of vaccine-related injuries. VAERS is the public’s only access to data about vaccine safety and efficacy. On the one hand, VAERS is a passive system. Although healthcare professionals are encouraged to report adverse reactions to VAERS, there are no legal requirements to do so.  Many physicians and pediatricians are unaware the database exists. Whether or not a reaction is reported is largely left to the professional discretion of the attending physician or medical facility. If a person with a life-threatening adverse vaccine reaction is seen in an ER, it is near impossible for attending healthcare workers to enter the case into VAERS unless they administered the vaccine or know the manufacturer’s vaccine lot number. The entire reporting system is terribly subjective. In addition, the system is not user-friendly. Health professionals who make efforts to enter adverse reactions frequently complain about it being time-consuming and extremely cumbersome.

Over a decade ago, VAERS’ failure as a reliable vaccine adverse event database was reviewed and criticized by Harvard scientists. Their report predicted that only about 1-2 percent of vaccine-related injuries and deaths get recorded. Although there has been a rather weak official effort to require healthcare workers to report adverse reactions into VAERS following mass Covid-19 vaccination, it has been discovered that the database grossly underreports actual vaccine injuries.  

Recently Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla backtracked on previous statements to support the company’s Cvovid-19 vaccine efficacy. Speaking at a healthcare conference hosted by JP Morgan, Bourla admitted that “two doses of the vaccine offers very limited protection, if any. Three doses with a booster offer reasonable protection against hospitalizations and deaths.”  The comments come at a time when breakthrough cases among the fully vaccinated have escalated, particularly for the now predominant Omicron variant.  In addition, a flurry of studies during the past 6 months indicates that the vaccines do not provide any robust and long-term immunity.  Depending upon the individual’s health status and the strengths and weaknesses of his or her immune system, vaccine immunity can begin to wane rapidly after 3 months following vaccination. At best, immunity seems to last no longer than 5-6 months for the average person.

We are also discovering that there are far more problems than we were led to believe during the very limited clinical trial period in autumn of 2020. Due to vaccine failures to protect recipients, an emphasis is now being placed on booster shots. But nobody in the drug industry and federal health agencies question at what point will repeated boosters create irreparable damage to the body’s immune system. If we anticipate the emergence of new SARS-2 mutations in the future, when will frequent boosters for every new variant ever cease?  It has been 14 months since Israel launched its vaccination campaign exclusively with Pfizer’s mRNA drug and the government now demands Israelis receive a fourth shot. Medical experts advising the Israeli health ministry raised an alarm. As reported in the New York Times, the scientists noted “that too many shots might actually harm the body’s ability to fight Covid… [and] might cause a sort of immune system fatigue.” Other concerns include: 1) following a third shot, immunity wanes more rapidly, and 2) the elderly who receive repeated boosters are at high risk of a systemic immune system shutdown. This may be one reason, among others, that the vaccines are being shown to be ineffective against Omicron.  According to the Israeli scientists there is no evidence that more boosters can prevent Omicron infections. 

In fact, vaccine failure, immune escape, the growing cases of adverse effects in people receiving more than one injection, and the rapid pace of viral mutations giving rise to new variants were predicted by the Dutch vaccinologist Dr. Geert Vander Bossche back in the summer of 2020.  We might remember that the most crucial bio-mechanism in our immune system is Immunoglobulin M antibodies (IgM), our memory antibodies. This is our first line of defense against SARS-2 infections and everyone who has been exposed to any coronavirus variant in his or her lifetime has these neutralizing IgM antibodies. When we contract the virus, the B-cells activate the body’s memory cells thereby producing IgM. However, as Vander Bossche warned — and what we are now observing to explain vaccine failure — the mRNA vaccines and repetitive shots can overload and override our neutralizing immunity with non-neutralizing spike protein antibodies.  We do not wish to undermine SARS-Cov-2’s risks among the immune-compromised and elderly. The SARS-2 virus’ spike protein can indeed trigger serious autoimmune reactions and this has been reported extensively in the scientific literature. However, the mRNA gene therapies are perfectly designed whereby we would expect to see similar or identical autoimmune activity giving rise to life threatening health conditions. Consequently the rise in vaccine-related autoimmune conditions was very predictable and every immunologist is qualified to concur this fact.  Following multiple mRNA vaccinations, the body’s cells express enormous amounts of the toxic spike protein. The immune system recognizes these proteins as foreign and attacks them, but can also potentially attack the body’s own cells expressing the spike protein.  This is a basic definition of an autoimmune disease. This is the gist of Vander Bossche’s early concerns about immune escape. And now this is exactly what we observe as vaccine-related injuries and deaths continue to pile up.

In a paper published last May, the authors warned that the Pfizer vaccine “reprograms both adaptive and innate immune responses.”  This can result in gradual immune depletion. Vaccine-induced immunity is waning as clinics and hospitals fill up with vaccinated patients.  On the one hand, there may be temporary, short-term protection against the virus and its variants for high risks persons; however, overall the body’s immune system is gradually deteriorating after every shot. It is a horrible tradeoff as vaccinated persons become increasingly susceptible to other viral, bacterial and fungal infections.  Repeated and frequent cytokine stimulation following each shot also increases the prospects of triggering a life-long systemic autoimmune condition such as cancer, arthritic diseases, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, etc.  We have been reading about such cases steadily during the past year but the research is being completely ignored by the media.

Last November, a Freedom of Information request was submitted to the CDC to get documented data on 1) persons who never received a Covid vaccine, 2) who were once infected, recovered, and were later infected again, and 3) recovered persons who transmitted the virus to another person. To the surprise of the submitters, the CDC responded that “a search of our records failed to reveal any documents pertaining to your request. The CDC Emergency Operations Center conveyed that this information is not collected.” Over 130 published studies have been complied by a Dr. Paul Alexander, a former assistant professor of evidence based medicine at McMaster University in Ontario, to confirm the advantages of natural coronavirus immunity following infection compared to immunity generated by vaccination.

There is more data on the benefits of natural immunity compared to the uncertainty of how long vaccine-induce immunity lasts. A Washington University School of Medicine study indicates that for some individuals immunity may be life-long after a SARS-2 infection. For children the news is better.  Young infants according to the University of Bristol produce an extraordinarily strong immune response against SARS-2 compared to other age groups. The researchers state there is no reliable evidence or argument whatsoever to warrant vaccinating small children. 

Israel National News reported natural immunity may be six times greater than that provided by vaccines, and Bloomberg upgraded this study with another estimating thirteen times greater immunity. There is already strong evidence, such as a UCLA study, that there is little to no difference in SARS-2 infection rates between the fully vaccinated and those with natural immunity following a previous infection. But one of the strongest studies published in Science by Maccabi Health Services in Israel, which enrolls about 2.5 million Israelis, found that those who once had a SARS-CoV-2 infection were much less likely than vaccinated people to get the more dangerous Delta variant, become symptomatic, or be hospitalized. This would explain a novel analysis by epidemiologists at the World Health Organization. The study analyzed records of 160 million people worldwide who had recovered rom Covid-19. Those who have recovered had an astonishingly low frequency of repeat infection, disease, or death. This is clearly not the case for the evidence emerging among the vaccinated whose symptomatic infection rates continue to increase.

During the past month, nations, particularly in Europe, are opening up again, dropping lockdowns and vaccine mandates and allowing their societies to return to a level of normalcy. Finally almost a dozen western countries are following the prevailing science about masks, social distancing, school and business closures and the robustness of natural immunity against SARS-2. Especially important, unvaccinated persons who were previously infected with the virus will be categorized on par with the “vaccinated.”  Sweden, for example has announced that the pandemic is essentially over and the virus will no longer be classified as a danger to society.

Had the FDA and Anthony Fauci’s National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Disease (NIAID) started approving existing clinically-proven and inexpensive drugs at the start of the pandemic, many millions of people would have been saved from experiencing serious infections or even dying from the SARS -2 virus rather than waiting for a vaccine that was rushed to market with very minimal regulatory oversight. Why federal health officials never followed this strategy is a question the mainstream media has refused to ask let alone investigate. What we do know is that the entire landscape of modern medical science has entered a time warp since the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic. For those of us who have been trying to make sense of the long trail of incomprehensible medical decision-making, contradictions, scientific sleight of hand, media lies, bureaucratic posturing, and censorship of otherwise orthodox physicians and scientists who refuse to adopt the narrative decreed from the high thrones of the CDC, NIAID, the FDA and the General Surgeon’s office, we feel like we have been abducted in a time-capsule and dumped off in a pre-Galilean dark age.  Today our regressive medical regime is populated by a dictatorial clergy dressed in lab coats instead of lurking tonsured priests in scarlet robes. Rather than executioners in black hoods, the snitches and accusers are Silicon Valley and mainstream media executives who censor dissenters and heretics. Metaphorically speaking there is little difference between the pro-mandate Covid-19 vaccination establishment cult and the Inquisition, except the forms of torture are physically less painful. Unless of course you are one of the millions of Covid-19 gene therapy recipients who have suffered from trusting Anthony Fauci and the Trump and Biden administrations’ czars of Covid operations.
