The ascendancy of more transmissible (and possibly also more pathogenic) Delta strains is a consequence of the worldwide vaccination campaign. This is now the most salient and the most important side-effect of our vaccines. They elicit antibodies that select for more aggressive SARS-2 lineages, which escape vaccine-induced immunity by replicating in the lungs of infected people faster and earlier.
Terrific writing here with a great mix of technical information supporting the author's rational analysis. This article definitely highlights that the "smart" people making the decisions are totally evil or totally incompetent. Initially, I gave them a pass for being uninformed and in a data collection mode. That all changed when Fauci openly admitted that he misled ( you can't handle the truth strategy) people on the % that needed to be vaccinated for herd immunity and masks don't work but now they do, etc my evil doer detection senses starting kicking in. I am in my early 60s and recovered from covid and am having my antibody levels tested every three to four months despite my Dr trying to give me the hard sell using the CDC talking points at my last appointment. The harder this vaccine strategy gets pushed by governments without, the higher my evil doer detection meter moves. PS - Almost everyone can handle the truth, they just need to be presented with it.
Been reading / watching videos around the problem with seed oils in our diets it's toxic effect on humans and other monogastric animals (chickens, pigs, house pets). Lots of evidence that the toxic consequences of too much linoleic acid is directly linked to the rise in chronic illnesses, including those that are comorbidities for Corona mortalities.
Okay, so here's an interesting fact, Israel has the highest per capita ingestion of seed oils. Wouldn't be surprised where Corona is raging there would be a graph that would match perfectly with that populations ingestion of seed oils versus saturated fats (suet, tallow, lard). (Nursing homes, hospitals and schools in US dietary guidelines mandate use of excess vegetable oils - which is so evident by just looking at both the residents and staff and their levels of ill health.)
Some very smart people are not explicitly connecting these dots (for obvious reasons) but for those interested, there a numerous videos on the topic with Tucker Goodrich, Brad Marshall, Paul Mason MD, Chris Knobbe MD, Peter Dobromylskyj DVM.
Something to consider as ad adjunct to minimizing Corona infection or injection adverse effects.
Once again, thank you for the nice work. It is extremely difficult to find such unbiased analysis on CV19 and the vaccines. Please keep it coming!
Thanks to writers such as Eugyppus and Berenson and Geraghty, and a few others who have sidestepped legacy media's roadblocks, the average person is fast becoming much more educated about the science of Covid; in a sense, the great divide is now between the informed and the willfully ignorant.
Once you begin to learn, the gap opens with others who simply will not do their homework and think. It's not a matter of agreeing with certain views; it's a matter of not allowing CNN to do your thinking for you. What one quickly learns is that the power structures do NOT appreciate independent research, discussion, thinking. Thus the vaccine mandates (outsourced to "private" company cut-outs), doctors being de-licensed (one today here in OR), social media blackouts, military pressure, etc.
But there are, thanks to technology, workarounds. They will endure long after the legacy media finds a different dog to chase. That's possibly the greatest positive in this whole sorry episode.
I don't know where there is any real evidence that delta is more pathogenic, which I think is part of the fearmongering. Death rates are lower, including unvaccinated. Personally (50+) I had it in late July in the US (close 100% delta at that point) and it was like a normal cold. I have actually had worse colds. Same for my wife. Both unvaccinated. My young kids did not have symptoms. A further anecdote is that some acquaintances who traveled to Europe (we traveled to the US) at the same time were both freshly AZ vaccinated (over 14+ days) and the couple, who are younger, both got worse cases where they were out of commission for a month and were taking various drugs like antibiotics to treat it. Their kids, same age, did not have symptoms either.
Authorities have to know this. When can a reasonable human assume this is no longer about profit but war?
Great mix of technically specific information with well reasoned presentation. Excellent writing. Very refreshing to see there are still a few literate souls out there.
There is no reason to think that covid 19 vaccines will go out of style any time soon; media/social/government pressure is immence and the convenience afforded by conformity and obedience is irresistable.
Thank you for your insights, as well as your willingness to answer questions here. I’m one of those who found you after Alex Berenson quoted you.
It is astonishing to me that these ‘vaccines’ have been handed out as if they are candy despite known concerns such as what you describe.
I do have a question. My understanding is that the Delta variant you discuss was originally called the Indian variant from its country of origin. However despite (because?) very few people there have been vaccinated even as of now, the cases and mortality began declining in mid May in perfectly symmetrical pattern. Deaths have gone from a seven day average of 4642 to 323 per day.
Assuming this data to be reasonably accurate, does this support or undermine your hypothesis?
A doctor name Sebastian Rushworth has made a similar point:
After reading both that and this post, I am still not understanding how vaccines that are non-sterilizing create evolutionary pressure for ever more virulent strains to emerge.
I can understand how they can make vaccinated people ’superspreaders’ because they may become infected and carry a high viral load yet have their symptoms suppressed thanks to the vaccine. This would result in increased transmission and hasten eventual herd immunity, but not reduce the virus itself.
Rushworth makes the comparison to bacteria, I could add ’superweeds’ that are resistant to Roundup, but in each case there is something that kills most but not all of the bacteria or weeds, allowing the resistant survivors to thrive.
But that isn’t how these vaccines work. I would appreciate any comments you might have.
Recent publicly available data is showing an overall significantly higher ratio of vaccinated deaths to vaccinated cases than unvaccinated deaths to unvaccinated cases. This would contradict the belief that the vaccine protects against severe outcome.
Lucid and informative. Thank you for the post.
Are the flu vaccines leaky? If that's the case, does it not suggest from our long experience with those that the impact of the covid vaccines is likely to be modest? And a second thought - if the paper you cite is correct and the vaccines have put pressure on the virus and lead to Delta's dominance and far less variability, would things improve once a vaccine specifically formulated to Delta arrives?
Excellent. What do you think the future holds for that VERY immunologically naive country in the South Pacific where almost none of the population has had any exposure? How could they safely open up? What should individual citizens do to protect themselves before/ when their immune systems finally get exposed likely early to mid next year?
Excellent post! I am a new subscriber and throughly enjoy your rational and logical approach to vaccines and covid, refreshing and to the point! I am wondering if you have come across any data regarding those of us who were not included in any of the early clinical trials...having a autoimmune disease (R.A.)that is in remission due to Enbrel. There is some reporting that biologics such as; Enbrel may actually help suppress the cytokine storm. I’ve not taken the jab, there’s just no information available. I’m 62 in good health otherwise, antibody test was negative and this strikes me as a double edged sword no matter what I choose to do.
You say Delta is more transmissible. Yet the UK stats show the Secondary Attack Rate among household members is not higher for Delta. Can this data be reconciled?
