Vaccinate the elderly and vulnerable, everyone else will get it, including children, to whom it poses near zero risk. The risk of death to healthy non-elderly adultts remains very, very, very low. Include in all discussion the current risk stratification data and that is the mantra we should all adopt. Alex Berenson forwarded your link via his stack. That was a good thing. Thanks for writing.

My wife and I are in our late 70s and refuse to take these fake vaccines. They are NOT vaccines at all, because they do not attack the virus. They only attack one spike protein, leaving most of the virus free to mutate. We are using a home nebulizer with 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide that has been shown to be very effective in cleansing the respiratory organs. Fauci and his gang have banned the proven therapeutics like Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. Our doctor flatly refuses tp prescribe a therapeutic. America's medical industry has gone loony political.

Uneducated answers like this are the primary reason I can not be unvaccinated. "Fake vaccine", "Fauci & Gang" type of memorized labels(even tho they blame others to be brainwashed) shows that how distant these people are from interpreting numbers correctly and protecting themselves.

I hate to disagree with the "highly educated" like Tal, but I must. I won't touch anything that Fauci endorses, because he's an obscene grifter. In 2015 Fauci was ordered by Obama to cease all taxpayer-funded gain of function. In early 2017, as soon as Obama left office, Fauci ordered the resumption of gain of function funding primarily to China and some to UNC Chapel Hill, keeping that order carefully hidden from the Trump Administration. There's a 2017 recording of Fauci predicting a "pandemic during the Trump presidency." Fauci has never explained why he banned the use of Hydroxychloroquine, just as he has never explained banning safe treatments for HIV in favor of the deadly, toxic, exorbitant AZT back in 1989. So, Tal, we will do what we can to give our immune systems the opportunity for natural (herd) immunity. Meanwhile you can do all you can to yourself to please Fauci.

So a vaccine that is not sterilizing (as is polio, measles, etc.) and offers no actual immunity (as polio, measles, etc. do) is still a real vaccine? Why? Is it because they labeled it a vaccine?

UPDATE: they (government) has changed the definition of a vaccine so that now its effectively any medication of any type that does anything to combat a virus. That's certainly one way to deal with the problem of the covid vaccine not being an actual vaccine.

On the contrary, the mrdical bureaucrats have no clue about the science or choose to ignore it. Why do you think they are suppressing everything that does not promote the “vaccination “ agenda? Science does not suppress, it allows for expression of a broad spectrum of theses. Ignoring data and scientific papers is actually the definition of ignorance.

Expand full comment

Agreed. Question is this virus respiratory or vascular? Seems the “experts” cannot agree.

Expand full comment

My understanding is the virus is respiratory. However once the vaccine is pumped into your arm, about 20% remains in your arm. The remaining 80% becomes vascular and migrates throughout the body. If it's picked up by the lymphocytes, it will migrate into the capillaries. The proof is the injuries and deaths by clotting, by blood leaking into the skin, by swelling throughout the body. These vaccines should have been shut down a long time ago, especially for children.

Interesting about the 20% - I have frequent dull ache in my arm where I was vaccinated. It's not constant and I refrained from weight training for a month to see if it subsided - it did not.

Expand full comment

Maria, in my humble opinion you must not take a booster. Based on my readings you would be wise to invest in a home, plug-in nebulizer using 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide. It's very easy to use and kills viruses in the respiratory organs. Initially however I would invest in a book by Dr. Thomas E. Levy that will go over the simple instructions for using the nebulizer. Amazon sells the 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide, the nebulizer, and the book. Check with your doctor, but I would not accept the vaccine ever again.

I agree - if I get it at this point, I will get it over with. I had the first shingrix shot and had a reaction, so I did not have the second. I had a terrible reaction to the second Covid shot and now this dull ache that won't go away. I'm done.

There are 600,000 dead Americans (The Economist estimates up to 18 million dead world wide) and COVID is killing another 3,500 Americans a week (so between now and Christmas another Viet Nam war's worth of corpses). You are going to get the Delta variant (it's about 70% as efficient a spreader as chicken pox - https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2021/08/11/1026190062/covid-delta-variant-transmission-cdc-chickenpox ) but you may not notice if you've been vaccinated. In my county, there have been 3,972 cases among people in their 70s of whom 294 died. I think I read that 50% of the people on ventilators died, so that would be around 600 people in your age bracket that were intubated and probably around 1200 who were hospitalized. I would encourage you to do the math and get vaccinated before it's too late for you and your wife.

Expand full comment

First, that 600,000 number includes people that died WITH COVID not because of COVD. Big difference. So people that died of all sorts of diseases were lumped into this number because they tested pos on a PCR test. Speaking of PCR tests, the cycle times here in US were intentionally ratcheted up to catch the slightest amount of virus. We have all come in contact with the virus many times. Our amazing immune system knocks it out. It is like ALL of us have cancer cells. Most immune systems are able to kill off those cells. Mine was not able to and why I have had cancer twice in 29 years. If I get virus, or have had it and die testing pos, it was cancer that killed me. If I did not have cancer my immune system would have been able to knock virus out. BTW, over 600,000 Americans die each year of cancer, another 800,000 die of heart disease. Over 70 percent of those that are listed as having died of COVID were obese. The number 1 factor was dementia indicating it was the elderly that primarily are dying of this virus. Ever been to a nursing home? I spent much time there with my folks. Those people are gravely ill. A bad cold could kill them.

I've had cancer too. I changed my diet completely and cleared it up. No sugars, no flour, no dairy. Just clean .meat and mostly raw vegetables, and lots of bone broth. There is no magic pill, its your effort that does the most good. Remember cancer thrives on sugar, so read labels.

I'll take the natural immunity (herd) instead of mathematics, Jeff, thank you. Don't trust The Economist. Trust the stats coming out of Israel.

Expand full comment

It has become exceedingly difficult to get a rational count of the dead and the cases. Many cases were from people who had CoV and recovered but can test positive for > 3 months from vial shedding. Then cases were defined by PCR cycle counts of varied reliability. SARs-CoV-2 was detected on nearly every surface in hospitals at a PCR of 30 but NONE of the swabs could be cultured as active per an Italian study. Culture is too hard for routine use, so a lot of cases were never real.

The numbers were intended to create clicks and viewers along with a medical establishment ready to respond by creating fear. Such fear is justified in the unhealthy obese and diabetic and seniors with poor immune systems. This would have been past us all if we hadn't worked hard at mitigation and simply warned the vulnerable. Unlike 1918 when the young were quite vulnerable, this pandemic did not need to affect some many to protect the few. Flatten the curve has turned into a forever condition as the virus becomes endemic.

Expand full comment

I believe it was Italy that said they were deliberately being very liberal when counting deaths. That gave us a green light IMO. Because of my cancer journey, I am highly suspicious of the medical world that includes the science community. I did a lot of reading when I got cancer again. I have a library of cancer books. One thing that left a lasting impression on me was how scientists get awarded lab space. It is some very dark reading. I realized then that finding a cure for cancer was not the goal. It was producing new drugs that made a few very rich with just slight incremental advances. Keep in mind I worked for big pharma. Ask yourself this. If scientists found out eating bark would cure cancer, do you think they would tell us their findings knowing it would kill their jobs, and stop the expansion of a huge industry. The city I left of 65,000, had 4 hospitals. They were building like crazy the past couple years. Think of all those jobs. Revenue.

And the vast majority of those are elderly and those with 2 or more comorbidities especially if one is obesity. Its rare you see an otherwise healthy person get long covid let alone die from it unless they've ben vaxxed in which case being healthy isn't enough you gotta be luck to that you're not one of those few that have a very bad or even deadly reaction to the jabb.

As for 600K dead, that maters only because there is a multi-million dollar marketing campaign behind that. People die in large numbers annually and no one really notices because they don't have the media telling them 24/7 about the deaths. The 2018 flu season was real nasty. It killed more kids than covid has so far in the US and yet people weren't masking or distancing because they weren't been told to do that.

Expand full comment

This is a good question. It is widely accepted that, in the wild, the virus will likely enter the nose or mouth. This is a form of the virus that can tolerate the lower body temperatures of these entry points; ie in the low 90s F. From here the mathematics (not necessarily from experimental data) suggest that a quasi-species swarm develops, with those variations that can tolerate higher body temperatures moving deeper into the olfactory system and/or respiratory tract. The olfactory system is assaulted by this swarm (hence the loss of the sense of smell). From the olfactory system the pathogen could potentially behave like a neurotoxin; possibly cross the blood brain barrier; the spike protein even exhibiting (potentially) prion-like behaviour (this is speculated). From the mouth, the swam will likely move deeper into the respiratory tract; as it adapts to the higher temperature environment it could enter the lungs or the digestive system, which has a very large number of ACE2 receptors, relatively speaking. This is what makes it so unpredictable; the symptoms can manifest in many different ways. It can enter the blood stream from a number of points (olfactory or respiratory) where the spike becomes generally cytotoxic to every organ of the body. This is why it is CRITICAL to prepare your immune system (diet, exercise, BMI, nutritional supplementation) and it is CRITICAL to have immediate access to therapeutics. The matter of vaccination is an individual choice to be weighed by each individual circumstance (taking into account co-morbidities, etc). Just be aware that this is not a vaccination in the classical sense but more of a "transfection", and it does not infer immunity to infection or transmission.

Many viruses land in the cardiovascular system or the neurological system if competent immune response (or viral dormancy) does not occur in time - hence why there are no "mild" viruses, to the immunocompromised. So, for SARS-CoV-2 to have side-effects for both is merely a reflection of either immune evasion or an incompetent immune response.

However, the signal that it is actually "trying" to evade the immune system in any way doesn't appear strong (there's plausibly no reason a primarily respiratory virus would "want" to), which suggests immune incompetence and previously-primed ADE - and this is exactly what the pathology looks like as well (cytokine storms, "long Covid").

I guaratee you that any pharmaceuticcal company that cme upo with either a propylactic drug or a drug that cured a Sars-Cov-2 infection would be much costlier than the vaaccines, who go for about 20-25 USD a dose.

If Big Pharma would have liked to earn money researching propylactic or curative drugs is excatly what they would have done.

Can you name a single Brand drug, ie not a generic drug, but one that is covered by patent, that is be cheaper to use as a prophylactic for any disease with a mortality of 0,5 %, correpsonding to an IFR of 0,5 % (And that a very low estimate) than vaccination fpor 30 USD.

Nesides, wouldn't people just start comåplaining that the drugs was just a scheme to make big pharma rich, and that this drug that Astra Zeneca, letäs say, invented as aprophylactic against Sars-Cov-2 infection, was fangerous and to be avoided.

As for a solution, this negativity towards vaccines is a disease of the mind in a late liberal society where the elites have lost all trust from their populations, and deservedly so - very much since theyu have nothing but hate for the majority and want them to pay for their own colonization.

The only alternative vlearly is instituting illiberal ethno-nationalistic states in the west, expelling the jews to Israel, destroying the government and deep state of the Great Satan and making our elites once again work for the people instead.

Then these liberal values of freedom and liberty and the sentiment "I won't take the vaccine cause the elites that rule my country are unthrustworthy and don't want whatäs best for me" which is what all this boils down tom would go away and the people would take the vaccines, or enhanced versions of them and then shut up.

Based on what I've been reading, the original Covid virus has become very rare because of viral mutation. Variants are becoming common.

Those who were vaccinated have become living petri dishes, because the vaccines do not address the virus. The vaccines attack just one of the virus proteins, leaving the rest of the virus free to mutate. This tells me that no one should accept a booster. These vaccinations should be shut down immediately in favor of therapeutics.

I'm very much pro-vaccination, except not for children and absolutely under no circumstances for children uder the age fo somewhere between 12 and 15. I say, If a b the bureacrat mandates that children shoudl be vaccinated he sdoes do under threat of ppounishment of death if the data shows that more children was hurt by the vaccines than by COVID.

I have no respect for people, I guess mostly shitlibs (Although I am in no sense a conservative), wishing death on unvaccinated people.

In a sense it is understandable because US whites now consists of two enemy tribes which is a result of the media exploiting existing friction and dislike between socially conservative people and shitlibs.

The media is de facto controlled by a certain ethnic group that have very large interest in that whites should not unite and develop a racial consciousness, as all other races have, aand unit and act collectively.

In one sense´it would be better if the right, or what passes for the right, starts to wish for the death of the people who have been vaccinted, because the left will never stop until every person with a righist personality type ion the US is part of a china type social credit system that the US liberals control, or are in concentration camps (A great anglo invenition, BTW).

But seeing that the right wants to build up while the left only wants to destroy, plkaying tit for tat with the left cvomes with cost for the right that it doesnät to to the left.

Anyway, leftist persons who wish death on unvaccinated people (It's always the left that first steps over that invisible line in the sand first, and that is because they know a certain ethnic group which is extremely operrepresented among the extreme elite, the establishment and every instituion in the US has been captured by their liberal compatriots and thus has their backs) should be treated as enemies and if possibilities arise their rule should be overthrown and they should be put into camps and reeducated. There is no other way, they will destroy everything in the US, including genociding white people, rather than give up the power they now have.

I consider such people - ie people wishing death on unvaccinated people - traitors to their race and morally inferior but they are clearly tactically superior when it comes to politics, with an ability to identify who their real enemy is that what passes for the mainstream right and mainstream populists totally lack.

No long term safety studies exist unless you count the results we see currently reported, which are not encouraging. So the vaccines MAY help the elderly short term., but we still don't know all the long term effects. Then again, the really old tend not to have a long future, but those over 65 do.

The clowns in government and business want everyone vaccinated regardless of health status. The original studies for the mRNA serum excluded those who had recovered. Studies now show that full vaccination disrupts the immune systems of those who recovered. Because the testing of the mRNA serums was abbreviated, the numbers played with, these global predators may have cut their own throats. If a portion of those "fully vaccinated" were actually immune, they may be the reason for the "vaccinated" becoming infected as well as the new variants. But, we don’t know because of the lack of good data and studies. While I have not crunched numbers, it seems to me the number of the fully vaccinated getting sick is about the same as those who are estimated to be naturally immune. But for me, if they cut their own throats, hooray! This is a relatively minor virus that does not warrant the extreme actions taken around the world.

Some old, obese, bad diet people have recovered from Covid quickly while some apparently healthy have died. These attributes are indicators of immune system health, but they are not dispositive.

Adverse events reported to the government's VAERS site have been found to be only about 10 percent of total adverse events. The survival rate of the virus is over 99 percent. With early treatments available, there is no reason to take the unapproved experimental vaccine. And it is NOT approved, it remains under perpetual EUA until supplies are gone. Only the biologic, not currently available, was approved. Legally they are not the same thing. So, forcing the serum on people is currently against the EUA law, which you might read sometime in addition to actual medical studies.

Correction, deaths are more like 13+ thousand, but my statement will be correct soon enough.

You are right about the deaths from vaccines, but how many have died from COVID? Or do you deny the existence of COVID, or the commonly accepted IFR of at least 0,5 %, probably around 1 %, for COVID?

Your argument seems really lacking. Is your point htat everybbody should take Ivermectin for prophylaxis 8Why this focus on Ivermectin) when we know that inhalation steroids -ie cheap asthma medication - have an effect, if taken as soon as any symptoms appear, to decrease the chance of developing a serious COVID infection?

This I don't understand and therefore it seems to me that this i more a case of that many anti-vaccination people are not really interested in the truth, just about their lack of thrust in the eastablishment (Which the establishment really deserves - they are almost all of them traitors to their people - the white ones at least) and the excessive focus on frredom that liberalism instills in a population - both conservatives and liberals in the US are liberals, and the US Constitution with it's amendments is a document born out of liberalism).

First, could you maybe avoid the ad hominem approach? Second, "Commonly accepted" does not mean it's true, especially if the mass media has anything to do with it... (funny enough, you admit that the establishment is full of traitors and not to be trusted)

So - when it comes to the number of COVID deaths you need to research how the CDC changed the death certificate recording rules for CV-19 only in March of 2020. Deaths were inflated by at least 16-fold.

You can learn about that here: https://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/covid-19-fatalities-167-times-too-high-due-illegal-inflation1

"IPAK's report reveals a historical timeline of events showing how a number of incidents conspired to inflate COVID-19 fatality data and, in turn, justify restrictive public health policies like lockdowns, quarantines, business closures and social distancing. One key issue has to do with the way cause of death is recorded in the case of comorbidities." You'll see links to CDC's own data in footnotes showing an insane number of comorbidities and conditions, (up to 4) that people had in conjunction with CV.

This means that using the CDC standards prior to March 24 2020, when they made this illogical and questionable change to reporting, the number of deaths up to Aug 2020 would drop from 161,392 deaths to 9,684. The CDC estimates that on average 36,000 people have died of the flu per year, over the last decade.

Louder for the people in the back!!!

On the contrary, roughly the same percentage and risk profiles die or are hospitalized from breakthrough infections as before the "vaccine."

Why would anyone assume that the powers-that-be want to reduce deaths? There's utterly no evidence for that, other than their own self-serving claims. Judging from their behavior, they seem to want to maximize deaths. Judging from their words (their oft-stated desire to reduce overpopulation), they seem to want to maximize deaths. Did the leaders in WWI think that trench warfare saved lives? Or did they simply not care what price others paid for their policy ideas? To me, seems like vaccines have worked exactly as intended: maximizing government power by perpetuating and extending the "emergency." Whatever powers they don't get vaccinating us, they'll get to ensure we get boosters and so on. This is a war against all of us & the good guys are losing. (To put it another way, if vaccines work as advertised, I'd still be against them because I prefer liberty to life - that used to be a common preference in America & it must be our preference if we are to remain free.)

There is no reason to jab the vast part of the population. The idea that Pfizer and Moderna pulled their control group for some valid scientific reason is bunk. They probably closed the control because the control ( natural immunity) was doing better than the jabbed group. To allow the control group to continue would show that there was no value in the jab and now someone has made billions jabbing people and I personally wonder if Fauxi has profited off the jab..

Not so. The PCR test cannot simultaneously test for cov and flu. There had to be 2 separate tests. The government fraud would pay for a cov diagnosis but but not a flu diagnosis. There are hefty payments to health care services for cov diagnosis but not for flu. If you do not believe that distorted the diagnosis you are foolish. The PCR test is gone as of Dec 31 and will be replaced with a test that they say can separate the flu and cov. Time will tell.

The governments needed to conflate covid deaths with other causes (flu, pneumonia, gunshots, etc) to make it sound worse to people who don't realize that "worse" still isn't very bad.

I based my US projections in 2020 off of seasonality & historical flu trends - especially H1N1, the last novel virus to cause a global pandemic. In the past few days, I've paused some of my research for DRASTIC so that I could look at what the current US data might tell me about vaccine efficacy. Your conclusions look a lot like mine [not a good justification, lol, but the evidence speaks for itself]; 8 of 10 states with the highest CFR's over the last 4 months are blue states with higher vax uptake, including the top 6. Further, only 5/50 states have a higher CFR since May 1st than in the 16 months prior, and there's a similar 4:1 ratio and correlation pattern among them.

Given all of the data, what happens next is that some unnecessarily high number of people will die from COVID while the gov. doubles down on the same tactics that led to the selection of a virus that produces exponentially more virions in order to compensate for social distancing, rather than allowing the least vulnerable to act as a natural vent for less virulent variants to emerge.

But then again, I'm not a scientist, so what do I know?

You don't need to be a scientist to worry about the effect that NPIs may have had on influencing the evolution of the virus.

I doubt we've yet seen the final outcome of their influence on immune escape by the virus.

NPIs cut in many directions at once, of course. They put "pressure" on the virus (maybe, but since NPIs are porous it's a bit hazardous to make hard assumptions) but they also make the virus's job easier by inflicting stress and anxiety on the fuel (i.e., us), which makes the fuel more potent.

But you pretend to know- right? I guess because all the public health people never have seen patients and use models to predict that know the average person (sorry MBA) gets to as well?

Expand full comment

I'm not trying to pretend to know something, I'm trying to discern reality from the extant evidence. Public Health officials have never been in a situation like we are with COVID-19, in that anyone can see and study the data for themselves. The availability of data has allowed anyone to also compare projections with reality, or other projections, and the abject failure of the earliest predictions simply led the CDC and HHS in general to avoid publishing longer-term projections. They were more afraid of tarnishing their credentials than they were willing to give honest assessments of what was coming, especially last fall. I wrote about this failure in the article in which I offered my projection and 7 months later it was in the middle of the pack when compared to the CDC's ensemble forecast. The difference was that I made my projections 27 weeks before theirs, which were weekly and posted 2 weeks [referring to the cumulative death total on May 1st]. The peak and length of the wave were also accurate.

I'm not a scientist, nor do I rely on my MBA for gravitas [since it paused when COVID started and I have put off the final 2 classes so that I can focus on researching COVID with DRASTIC. My MA is in ancient history. I suppose if the relevancy of my experience is what you were criticizing, then I should also mention that my Marine Corps career was spent working in WMD & C-WMD, with a healthy amount of time modeling various aspects of potential biological leaks or attacks. If curious, you could just look at my Substack blog to see those and any other details.

Regardless, my goal is to hold officials accountable, because I do know what is supposed to happen in times like this and I've observed my political leaders make numerous decisions that led to more deaths and greater disruption for everyone else. Public health officials pretended that they were acting in YOUR best interest, and in many of those cases they lied or were incompetent. Whether or not you or anyone else appreciates my efforts is ultimately irrelevant-my actions are based on the belief that all of us deserve to know the truth.

A problem with the unvaccinated death number in hospitals is that they are counting COVID deaths from January to June, in only half of that timeframe were vaccines widely available, so they are counting as dead people who had no access to a vaccine.

I think Event 201 and the Rockefeller foundation’ Operation Lockstep predate the election cycle. Did they use the “virus” to amplify Trumps incompetence, most surely! However this project is much larger, more international than any countries electoral machinations!

from the beginning, the case fatality rate was assumed to be somewhere between 0.1 and 1.5% - it depended on the number of asymptomatic cases. The big fear was that the ICUs would run out of beds and they'd have to euthanize old people (which they did in Spain).

They also euthanized old people in the UK. They took them out of hospitals and put them in care homes.

And THAT is the untold evil part of how this was handled by our rulers. We are only now beginning to know the cost to US citizens in delayed medical testing and treatment, then add in the extra overdoses and the increase in suicides. It WILL be more than they assigned to this flu. It was also estimated than an additional 30,000,000 in Africa would be thrust into starvation because of the shutdowns and disruption of the supply chain. We may not get the car we want because they can't computer chips, but our politicians sentenced MILLIONS in Africa to death by starvation. I'm sure Bill Gates is happy though.

Perhaps the progressive politicians made decisions to produce the result they really wanted, i.e., the starvation of millions of Africans. Look at all the things the progressives do and their actual affect on people of color, rather than the lies they tell to make themselves electable. They accuse minority individuals on the right of being sell-outs to deflect attention from the real sell-outs.

Trump also got the vaccine (even though he'd had the disease) as soon as it was available him. What's your excuse?

Trump was also treated with Hydroxychloroquine, quickly banned by Fauci. It's obvious that Trump was playing the part of a lab animal to encourage people to be treated in whatever means available according to individual choice.
