“If science was put to the service of capital, the recalcitrant worker’s docility would be assured”

— Andrew Ure, Philosophie des Manufactures, 1835

 “It was thenceforth no longer a question whether this theorem or that was true, but whether it was useful or harmful to capital, expedient or inexpedient, politically dangerous or not. In place of disinterested enquirers, there were hired prize-fighters; in place of genuine scientific research, the bad conscience and the evil intent of apologetic”

–  Karl Marx,  Preface II of Capital

“Scientists expose themselves as ideologists until, at the end of a long chain of prize-fighting, eclecticism, syncretism, evil apologetic and so on, sham-science appears … and the scientific “ideal” is presented in the image of the stock-market, where gambling decides our fate”

Josef WeberThe Problem of Social Consciousness In Our Time
(1957)

This comprises 4 translations (one of which is a Google Translate version) from French of texts about the current vaccination programme, followed by some further quotes on capital and science, plus some links to relevant material. Most of this has been put on the Covid1984 part of this site, but has been put here in one place because people have expressed difficulties in trying to find relevant material. The ideological aspects of some of these texts are obviously not something I agree with, but my disagreements will have to be left till later.

Another reason I’ve put them here is with the aim of implicitly dismantling the knee-jerk Newspeak-type reactive insults spat out at those who have the “arrogance” to question the vaccination programme, or the ad hominem amalgam techniques which automatically associate such criticisms with the Right, both of which were the kind of vile categorisations propagated by Stalin and his “useful idiots” in the 1930s. Then there were no more Trotskyists but only “Hitlero-Trotskyists”, nowadays there are no more critics but only “conspiraloons” and “anti-vaxxers”. A  put-down endlessly repeated  becomes like a  mantra you mumble in your sleep. One can dispense with actually ‘thinking’ it – that is, with going through the complicated logical acts involved in verbal formulation of it.  The concrete melts into the abstract and no one seems able to think of turns of speech that are not clichés and unearned received ideas. Such mechanization is essential for the repression of critique and in this “reason” itself is instrumentalized, taking on a kind of blind positive obviousness, becoming a fetish, a magic entity that is accepted rather than intellectually experienced. Such language is the prison of hierarchical power, the refuge of its police violence. Any dialogue with power is violence, whether passively suffered or actively provoked. When power wants to avoid resorting to its material arms, it relies on language to guard the oppressive order. Concepts like “conspiracy theorist/conspiraloon” become ‘streamlined’, rationalized, labor-saving manipulative tools. Thinking itself is thus reduced to the level of industrial processes, subjected to a tight schedule – in short, made part and parcel of the production of ideology.

No 10 Downing St copie

Doubting the almost overwhelming propaganda, and the manner in which the vast majority of people seem to accept it, tends to induce such high levels of anxiety that people more than ever prefer to bury their heads even deeper into the sand than they’ve ever done up till now.  As if speaking, hearing and seeing no evil provides them with some sense of security.

All this is symptomatic of what a friend referred to as “The deterioration of the attitude towards life and its meanings; towards what’s essential for oneself and others around you; towards knowledge in general and especially one’s own ability to know; the relation between knowledge (or rationality in general) and feeling; the attitude towards science as method vs. “Science” as institutional representation of knowledge; towards institutions in general; and how media- and politically-manipulated fear and illusion of managing and controlling is taking over all other possibilities of feeling, knowing and acting, and how this fear compensates for dealing with other kinds of fears that are denied expression and thus remain stronger than ever…”

None of the 4 initial translated texts  comprise a radical critique in themselves, but they are a contribution to seriously questioning the race to vaccination. Some people will justify, to themselves at least, their being  vaccinated because “it’s better to be safe than sorry”. The following shows that not taking it is almost certainly the safer bet.

 Note added 17/2/21:

“According to data from Pfizer, 0.6% of vaccinated subjects presented “serious adverse events” and 0.1% “life-threatening events” (here). So far, official statistics say that  2.22% of those who have Covid die. On that basis you could say that Covid is roughly 22 times more lethal than the potential effect of the vaccine on the 109 million people (roughly 1.4% of the world’s population) who officially have had Covid. However, 2.22% of 1.4% = 0.0311%. That is,  0.0311% of the world’s population has died from Covid. On that basis Pfizer’s vaccine could potentially kill a bit over 3 times more people than Covid has killed for the moment, but Pfizer would have to vaccinate the whole world, and Covid would have to stop infecting people totally, for the comparison to be valid. Make of that what you will.

Deus ex vaccina

(pubd. 16th January 2021)

After a much-talked-about year of pandemic management, the long-awaited and announced vaccine is finally here. Note that the term “vaccine” has been used more in the singular than in the plural, which is reminiscent of the deus ex machina of Greek tragedies: a divine intervention that suddenly resolves a desperate situation. Advocates of technology (under the banner of progressivism) obviously welcome the arrival of the miracle solution that would end the epidemic shaking the planet. Any deviation from this framework of thought gives rise to the use of a vocabulary with a propagandist overtone: “conspiracy theorists”, “covidiot” or “reassurance ideologist” i (the latter being particularly violent in my opinion, because it implies that the simple act of reassuring those around you is already ethically questionable; since when has it been deplorable to simply reassure people in psychological distress?).

The pharmaceutical industry as a whole offers us four types of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines.

Two are based on “classic” technologies that have been in use for nearly a century and consist of:

1) attenuated viruses (e.g. from companies: Sinopharm, Sinovac), polyclonal vaccine (i.e. targeting several components of SARS-CoV-2).

2) virus fragments (e.g. from different companies: Novavax), monoclonal vaccine (targeting only one component of the virus).

The other two are built with new “gene” technologies and are composed of:

3) viral genetic material in the form of RNA, never before applied to humans (e.g. companies: Pfizer / BioNTech, Moderna), monoclonal vaccine.

4) a viral vector which delivers viral genetic material (RNA) of interest (in this case, that of SARS-CoV-2) (eg from companies: AstraZeneca / Oxford, Johnson & Johnson), monoclonal vaccine.

All of these vaccines should not be treated equally and rejecting them as a whole without considering them separately would be just as narrow-minded as viewing the COVID-19 vaccination as a deus ex machina to our pandemic (or rather deus ex vaccina). Although the result of different technologies, these vaccines have some things in common. Their development was extremely rapid, bearing in mind that the development of a new vaccine can take years (sometimes more than 10 years, according to the WHO) ii. In fact, when developing new vaccines, part of the time is wasted waiting for various authorizations, regulations and funding and another part is devoted to the development of vaccine technology. In the case of SARS-CoV-2, these two phases could be shortened, because on the one hand the usual administrative delays were accelerated and on the other hand studies on these new technologies had already started before the arrival of the pandemic. But making vaccines in a rush is never ideal, especially when it comes to assessing their effectiveness and the extent of side effects of new technologies. This is all the more true for this virus which has peculiarities that make the design of a vaccine complicated.

Two main fears: the effectiveness and side effects of vaccines

I. Effectiveness

Vaccine efficacy does not depend solely on biotechnology, but on the nature of the target: the virus itself. One reason for the lack of durable vaccines against the viruses that cause colds or the flu is that these viruses evolve rapidly. This is typically the case with RNA viruses (of which coronaviruses are a part). In addition to mutations (that is, the transformation of the genetic code by “mistake”), they also frequently recombine (which is the equivalent of genetic “exchanges” between viruses) iii. If coronaviruses are able to perform “ping-pong between animal species (including humans)” iv, it is thanks to this power of transformation.

A monoclonal vaccine (which therefore targets only one part of the virus) will most likely only have short-lived efficacy, limited in time by the appearance of any variant of SARS-CoV-2. On the other hand, a polyclonal vaccine offers the vaccinees the possibility of developing defenses against different parts of the virus, making it possible to reduce the risk of the virus escaping (after evolution) from herd immunity.

In the case of monoclonal vaccines against SARS-CoV-2, the target component is the “spike” protein (those famous button-shaped surface proteins that are represented on the surface of the virus when it is drawn). The strategic choice of this target is based on its nature of stimulating our immunity. However, this protein is used by the virus to recognize its host and is subject to mutations, several of which have already been documented v. Thus, the hope of eradicating this virus overlooks the following possibilities:

the virus spike protein mutates and the vaccine becomes ineffective. The new variant is as dangerous as the previous one, if not worse;

Darwinian selection pressure favors virus transmission independent of the spike protein (a less frequent mechanism, but documented vi);

the virus recombines with another virus and changes so as to escape the vaccine (a scenario which is all the more dangerous if there is another epidemic of the coronavirus virus, such as MERS-CoV vii);

the virus disappears from the human host (ideal scenario) and “takes refuge” in animal reservoirs, where they continue to evolve. The return of a variant escaping the vaccine would therefore not be excluded. It should be noted as such that it is impossible to eradicate a zoonosis (that is to say an infection shared between humans and other animals) unless all host animals are vaccinated or eliminated.

The pharmaceutical industry obviously offers a solution: that of renewing the vaccines and providing the doses according to a vaccine strategy that consists of administering a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 several times a year. For a price of 20 euros a dose, twice a year for a market targeting a large part of the planetary population, this is indeed very attractive for the industry and for stock market investment funds. This is a market strengthened by the political decision of providing 300 to 500 billion euros per year with negotiated financial guarantees (with the European Union amongst othersviii)

II. The side effects

Concerns about side effects and tolerance of modern COVID-19 (RNA) vaccines are frequently dismissed by staunch techno-progressives, who refer to clinical trials. While admitting that a clinical trial (like that of the Pfizer firm) carried out on 38,000 people is promising and that it would be difficult to demand more from a company, it is extremely unlikely that the results are likely to be so encouraging applied to larger figures of several orders of magnitude. If the figure of 38,000 people may seem high, it can never include a diversity of health profiles equivalent to the population for which the vaccine is intended. The epidemic being global and the percentage necessary for the acquisition of collective immunity being between, approximately, 60-70% according to the WHO ix, this would make a theoretical target of approximately five billion people, that is to say a population a million times larger than in the Pfizer trial (while admitting that the actual number of people vaccinated will likely be lower). According to data from Pfizer x, 0.6% of vaccinated subjects presented “serious adverse events” and 0.1% “life-threatening events”. But 0.1% of life-threatening side effects put on the scale of a billion people would put a million lives at risk! Any preventive measure must do less harm than the pathology in question. However, the lethality of SARS-CoV-2 (which fluctuates around 0.2% xi) is far from being comparable to that of plague or Ebola epidemics. So is it justifiable to risk all these serious adverse events?

Since RNA vaccine technology is new, it is imperative to validate it. Conventional vaccines can be certified very quickly, because their technologies are known and thus pose no problem (this is why two influenza vaccines can be produced and certified per year). For RNA vaccines, certifying without applying the same basic stringency would be incorrect. Note also that those who claim the precautionary principle with social distancing and masks are suddenly absent from the debate!

To the list of concerns already mentioned can also be added:

the ineffectiveness of such new viral vector vaccines in people who would have natural immunity to the vector itself (the vector is an “empty” human virus, filled with RNA encoding SARS-CoV antigens 2). This is a benign but real problem, but nobody seems to care (non-existent problem with conventional vaccines)

A possible recombination of the vector / SARS-CoV-2 construct with a natural virus/viruses. This is a much more serious problem. In the scientific community (and this is becoming a bit technical, but may interest some competent readers in the field), two arguments are opposed to this concern (i) gene exchanges only take place between viruses of the same type (between DNA viruses on the one hand and RNA viruses on the other hand, but not between these two categories) and (ii) any catastrophic event would be unlikely. The first argument is correct, but examples of exchanges between RNA and DNA viruses exist and cannot be overlooked xii. The second dialectic, which consists in sweeping aside fears on the pretext that even if risks exist, they are so improbable that they can be dismissed, demonstrates the carelessness of techno-progressives in the face of calculations of probabilities. Just imagine, for example, that only one hundredth of the world’s population would end up being vaccinated, twice a year. This would still represent hundreds of millions of doses per year, integrating into thousands / millions of our cells several virus vector particles of the vaccine, all potentially capable of transforming themselves… The nanoscopic adverse event that could give birth to a Frankenstein monster would have to be less than a chance in hundreds of billions.

Add to this probability an additional, more basic, but absolutely crucial condition: the fact that you cannot administer a vaccine when you are actively infected. For example, when injecting flu shots, the doctor should make sure that his patient is not carrying the virus. This would open the door wide to wild recombinations. Have governments considered in their vaccination strategies to screen people for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 (including asymptomatic) before giving them the vaccine?

Note also that those who claim the principle of taking precautions with social distancing and masks are suddenly absent from the debate!

It is for these reasons that in 2016 “the Brighton Collaboration” (a non-profit global network on vaccine safety and aimed at healthcare professionals) formulated guidelines following the recommendations of the United States Agency. Food and Drug Products FDA and the European Medicines Agency) for the design of vector vaccines. These recommendations include (i) the review of knowledge related to viral recombinations, (ii) the extent of the timeliness of these events, (iii) the review of the mechanisms leading to these events and (iv) the establishment of safety measures as well as methods of detecting these adverse events xiii. Have these principles been respected?

We are told that the advantage of modern vaccines, compared to conventional ones, is their ability to be modulated to adapt them to a changing situation. So, if a particularly virulent variant were to suddenly spread, modern vaccines would have an advantage. If this is indeed correct, these new vaccines which overstimulate and modulate immunity nevertheless have a major drawback compared to more traditional vaccines: that of interfering with the immune balances themselves. The principle of these gene vaccines is to force our own cells to produce viral fragments (rather than injecting them) against which the body will immunize. When it is our cells that produce foreign particles, the risk of an autoimmune reaction that escalates into anaphylactic shock [https://www.webmd.com/allergies/anaphylactic-shock-facts] or rejection from our own cells is higher. In practice, we do not know what will happen in a whole category of patients, starting with those who suffer from immune or endocrinological pathologies (we are thinking here, for example, of Alzheimer’s patients, type I diabetics, rheumatic diseases and joints, Cushing’s or Addison’s diseases, certain thyroid pathologies, etc.). This represents a significant fraction of the population and deserves to be investigated.

There remains one final concern regarding the science behind all these vaccines (all types combined): that of the vaccine strategy. Belgium has decided to give priority to vaccinating people at risk, including the elderly, and nursing staff. While the strategy makes sense for the latter category of people, it is less so for the elderly. The virus is only dangerous for certain people with weak immune systems. However, the principle of vaccination is to stimulate the immune system and therefore, the vaccine will never be more effective than the immune system on which it relies… In America, it is children who are vaccinated against seasonal flu, because even though this category of the population does not suffer from the disease caused by these viruses, they can transmit it. However, it responds well to the vaccine and through herd immunity it protects people who do not respond well. Establishing a vaccination strategy based on fragile people who are also the most exposed to autoimmune risks therefore seems ineffective and therefore seems to me to be more of a political communication decision than a scientific one.

As for other reasons that prompt me to consider these vaccines with caution, Paul Lannoye describes clearly in his article his critical review of the implementation of these vaccines and their links with the EU in “About the anti-covid vaccine. Neither conspiracy nor blind belief” xiv. I also invite readers to consult the report by Dr Vélot (molecular geneticist at the University of Paris-Saclay and Chairman of the Scientific Council of CRRIGEN) xv, a summary of which is also provided by Valérie Tilman in “Covid-19 : Expert report on vaccines using GMO technologies: summary of Dr Vélot’s note” xvi. This analysis, independent of mine, arrives at the same conclusions. It should also be noted that the first data from the vaccination campaign are starting to become available and reflect our concerns. Indeed, the latter do not confirm the effectiveness of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine three weeks after the administration of the first dose, prompting a re-examination of the schedule for the administration of the second in several countries xvii.

My training in environmental virology allowed me to study the extremely dynamic nature of viruses and their reproductive cycles. They represent the most abundant biological entity on Earth and reproduce with formidable speed and multiplicity. They are capable of both killing us and saving us. So, to protect my family and loved ones, it is obvious to me that we all need to be vaccinated with conventional vaccines. But as always, you have to know the difference between which are effective and safe and which are less so. Honest communication and a standards-abiding approach are necessary. It is curious that not only has this communication not been made, but that in forcing vaccines as the only solution – when vaccines are never curative therapies – the authorities have forgotten that medicine is there first of all to treat people… What happens with the practice of general practitioners, that is to say the first line of defense? We cannot examine patients and measure the severity of their condition just by going online and asking for COVID tests… Where are we with curative therapies?

Does the Pfizer vaccine increase the risk of contamination and death from Covid19?

Published on 01/16/2021 at 19:12 – Updated on 01/17/2021 at 08:48

Does the Pfizer vaccine increase the risk of contamination and death from Covid19? © Sameer Al-DOUMY / AFP SHARE: Author (s): Dr Gerard Delepine for FranceSoir

This can be feared by recent developments in the epidemic in the countries currently most vaccinated, according to data provided by the WHO.

Evolution in Israel since vaccination

The media crown Israel, the champion of the anticovid fight by the Pfizer vaccine [1]. Excellent operation for Pfizer who obtained a price increase of 40% for this priority given to Israel. Since December 20, in 24 days, more than 20% of Israelis (two million people) have been vaccinated.

But, since that date, according to WHO figures, the daily numbers of contaminations and deaths attributed to Covid19 have exploded. Daily contaminations thus went from 1886 cases on December 21 to 8094 on January 10.

Does the vaccination facilitate contaminations from Covid19?

“In Israel vaccination began on 20th December and was followed by an increase of 400% in contaminations

And the daily mortality went from 18 on December 20th to 53 on January 10th.

Does vaccination increase deaths from Covid19?

“In Israel vaccination began on 20th December and was followed by an increase of 300% in deaths

These data led the government to extend the third confinement of the country for an indefinite period.

Evolution in Great Britain since vaccination

Great Britain is the second country in the vaccination race which began on December 4 with the vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech. Since that date, the number of daily contaminations has exploded from 14,898 on December 4 to 68,063 on January 9, 2021.

Does the vaccination facilitate contaminations from Covid19?

“In Great Britain vaccination began on 4th December and was followed by an increase of 300% in contaminations”

Unfortunately also the Covid19 mortality, which after an increase of almost 300% (414 on December 4 to 1564 on January 14) exceeds by 27% that observed in March-April 2020 (maximum peak 1224 on April 22, 2020).

Does vaccination increase deaths from Covid19?

“In Great Britain vaccination began on 4th December and was followed by a clear increase of daily deaths which is now above those observed in March and April 2020 “

These considerable and simultaneous increases in the daily incidences of contaminations and deaths after vaccination are very worrying and confirm that the marketing authorizations for vaccines were premature. Evolution in France not vaccinated during this period In France, both the number of new cases and the number of daily deaths remained stable during this period and at a much lower level (per million) than in countries that are champions of vaccination.

In France, without the vaccine, the death rate has gone slowly down since mid-November

[SF note: this was a month ago; today, 15th February, the official statistic of Covid-related deaths is

We are therefore struck by the evolving differences of the Covid19 epidemic between the countries, which are the first in the vaccination race, and France, which is slower to vaccinate.

Since the widespread administration of the Pfizer vaccine, the number of infections and daily deaths has risen sharply in Israel and Great Britain, while among die-hard Gauls the epidemic has slowly receded.

This praise for slowness is a reminder that there are no safe drugs or vaccines and that paradoxically they can increase the severity of the disease they are meant to fight.

This has been observed with the supposedly anticancer vaccines (the anti-hepatitis B vaccines supposed to prevent liver cancer [2] and the anti-papillomavirus vaccines supposedly anti-cancer of the cervix [3] and more recently with the health scandal of the dengue vaccine in the Philippines which has resulted in several hundred deaths and a cascade of ongoing trials.

The lessons of the Dengvaxia disaster have not been learned and endanger the victims of the current frenzied propaganda, those who are vaccinated against Covid19.

Neither pro nor anti-vaccine, but firmly opposed for the moment to the generalization of an insufficiently evaluated vaccine

Contrary to what decoders linked to the pharmaceutical industry claim, I am not against vaccination. I am pro-vaccine when a vaccine is effective, safe and prevents serious illness. I am against a vaccine when it is unnecessary, as is the case for diseases transmitted only by water (polio, typhoid, cholera) in countries with public hygiene having drinking water and treatment of waste. I am against the vaccine, when it has not been properly studied and evaluated: vaccine against dengue (which has caused hundreds of deaths in the Philippines), Gardasil vaccine (which paradoxically increases the risk of cervical cancer).

The indication of any treatment or vaccine should be based on an assessment of its benefit / risk balance.

No individual benefit can be expected from vaccinating those under 65 against covid, since the disease is milder in them than the flu; this population can therefore hope for nothing from anticovid vaccines except for complications.

And the societal argument: “we vaccinate ourselves to protect others” is also irrelevant, since it is far from being demonstrated that the vaccine is able to prevent or slow down viral transmission.

In the current state of knowledge, the vaccination of older people with risk factors (population where an effective and safe vaccine could be useful) has not been properly evaluated, because the trials refuse to include this population at risk. .

The precautionary principle therefore justifies not systematically vaccinating them, as long as there is not a sufficient number of transparent data confirming the effectiveness and the absence of toxicity in a real population.

Norwegian alert

Norway has just issued an alert on January 15 after the observation of 23 deaths possibly linked to the Pfizer vaccine [4] [5], in elderly people in nursing homes. Of those deaths, 13 were autopsied, with the results suggesting that common side effects may have contributed to serious reactions in frail elderly people. According to the Norwegian Institute of Public Health: “For the most fragile people, even relatively mild side effects can have serious consequences. For those who have a very short remaining lifespan anyway, the benefits of the vaccine may be marginal or irrelevant ”and the National Institute of Public Health has amended the coronavirus vaccination guide, adding new advice from caution on the vaccination of frail elderly people.

Peter Doshi [6] had warned in November “let’s wait until we have full test data” because the industry’s victory announcements are imprecise and incomplete. He also recalled that the trials did not study the only relevant criterion, mortality [7] but only the number of cases based on often false tests: “the world has bet everything on vaccines to provide a solution to the pandemic, but the trials are not focused on demonstrating that they will be ”.

In conclusion, the government should be congratulated for its slowness in generalizing anti-covid vaccination. The current results of the Pfizer vaccine in the Israeli and British populations indeed raise fears of a vaccine health catastrophe in these countries and the Norwegian alert increases the concern.

Let us thank in advance the French volunteers to be vaccinated: they will constitute the guinea pigs of the phase 3 trial that the laboratory did not take the time to do before marketing. Thanks to them and the risks they take, in a few months we will be able to have a better idea of ​​the advantages and disadvantages in real people.

A rough précis of this video

(you can get English subtitles on this video)

Christian Vélot, molecular geneticist , University Paris-Saclay, president of Scientific Council of Criigen (COMITÉ DE RECHERCHE ET D’INFORMATION INDÉPENDANTES SUR LE GÉNIE GÉNÉTIQUE – https://criigen.org/ )

https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=2166&v=tYwCxe9gvQY

Vaccines are not the same as medicines for those who are ill (we may generally accept side effects for those who are ill).

A virus with a “spike” of covid on the surface of an envelope capsule of protein (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viral_protein). Protein allows virus to be anchored to the surface of cells which are infected with a virus and release its genetic material (g.m.) there.

DNA is genes and some hold the secret of protein manufacture. Proteins are large molecules that act as all biological processes that take place in our cells. DNA holds manufacturing secret of proteins.

From DNA (double helix) genes to protein is not direct – it passes through the DNA which must be converted into single strand molecule RNA. Intermediary between DNA and protein, is called the “messenger” (i.e. mRNA). DNA language conversion into RNA molecule is called TRANSCRIPTION. RNA is decoded to create protein “language” (“translation”).

So DNA → transcription to RNA → translation to PROTEIN

Virus injects itself into DNA and follows same DNA → transcription to RNA → translation to PROTEIN process and can then leave cells to infect other cells and individual cells to carry itself because it has no autonomy. It can’t create its own proteins.

Some viruses’ g.m. is NOT DNA but is directly RNA. That is, it is directly the intermediary to proteins (ie the messenger to proteins). Which is the case with COVID.

Normally a vaccine is used to stimulate the immune system – to prepare the antibodies to neutralise the infectious virus (or bacteria). Some vaccines involve injecting the whole virus – which are “inactive”: it looks the same to the antibodies but it’s “dead”. The problem with these is that they’re not very powerfully “immunogenic”. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immunogenicity) – “immunogenic” meaning able to stimulate the immune system. So you have to empower it with adjuvants (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adjuvant) – aluminium salts, formaldehyde, etc. and you have to repeat the injections.

Attenuated (or “inactive/dead”) vaccines are NOT in fact dead, not inactivated , but weakened.

So if we get a mutant strain of a virus which has become heat-sensitive and can’t multiply at body temperature (37º) lab procedures can make the virus heat-sensitive.

Attenuated vaccines are more immunogenic than “inactive/dead” ones. But because they’re not dead they can be more dangerous because they’re not sufficiently attenuated. Especially for those who are fragile, like pregnant women.

The new “recombinant protein” (https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prot%C3%A9ine_recombinante) vaccines:

These proteins are manufactured differently from those that naturally make it in real life – such a vaccine can inject NOT the whole virus but a surface protein of the virus, a surface protein that triggers production of the anti-bodies – ie it becomes immunogenic. So it’s less dangerous as a method of stimulating the immune system than the whole virus. This method is used in the vaccine against Hepatitis B. Also against Papillomavirus against cervical cancer.

For Hepatitis B – a DNA virus – what is searched for in order to produce the vaccine is the gene holding the manufacturing secret of the surface protein.

Recombinant” vaccines are manufactured in cells (e.g. in yeast) that are not those which synthesise it in real life. This recombinant cell is purified from the cells that produce it, then combined with adjuvants and injected into people to be vaccinated. The protein is the vaccinating agent.

There are more than 230 vaccines in the race and (at Christmas 2020) 20 were ready to be released on the market. Some are inactiviated (ie widely used already for other diseases). The China vaccine used methods previously developed. They were applied already back in July, though they’re not very immunogenic and repeated vaccines are required. They need adjutants.

Others are based on the recombinant method (eg the one proposed by Novavax).

The Canadian “Medicago” bets on capsid [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capsid ] protein (inside the envelope – not visible on the outside surface of the envelope. It’s produced in plant cells (transgenic cells), put into empty capsid called a “virus-like particle”(VLP) – it seems like a virus but isn’t.

NEW VACCINES FOR COVID

These are “genetic vaccines” .

They inject a part of the g.m. of the virus , which holds the manufacturing secret of, for example, the spike protein, the surface immunogenic protein. This protein will be synthesised directly by the cells of the person we are trying to vaccinate. These cells will manage the g.m. – decode it and synthesise the spike protein themselves. These are RNA – a bit of the viral RNA – messenger RNA. This method is the one chosen notably by PfizerBioNTech and Moderna.

The gm we want to introduce into cells – either RNA or DNA can’t enter into the cells alone – it needs a vehicle – called a “vector” – a nanoparticle of “fat” (a billionth of a meter in length) in which COVID g.m. is enclosed.

What limits our cells – the plasma membrane – “lipid bilayer” [https://www.lexico.com/definition/lipid ] – a layer of fat that fuses with the layers of fat from our cells.

Others are DNA vaccines.

They use a vector which is not a nanoparticle of fat but which is a virus (NOT Covid) to be used for its natural virus properties – an ability to inject g.m. into cells. AstraZeneca and Sputnik use a recombinant virus as a vector – called Adenovirus [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adenoviridae ] – a DNA virus notably responsible for a flu-like state (like a bad cold) – not a very aggressive virus, but the virus has been disarmed – ie made inoperative by eliminating some of its g.m. responsible for its virulence. The eliminated part is replaced by COVID g.m. Thus it delivers into our DNA hybrid g.m. which is partly its own g.m. and partly the g.m. of Covid. It’s called a recombinant virus. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recombinant_virus]. Adenovirus is a DNA virus. Covid is an RNA virus. But it’s impossible to insert RNA into DNA. Covid RNA has been converted into a Covid DNA and DNA→ RNA is possible. But not normally – normally it’s the contrary. But now, thanks to a viral enzyme, it is possible.

AIDS went from RNA to DNA. This enzyme is called “Reverse Transcriptase” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_transcriptase]

This delivers some recombinant DNA which will include a recombinant vector.

THESE VACCINES HAVE NEVER BEEN USED BEFORE – or hardly ever. There’s a risk of the vaccinating DNA getting inserted into our chromosomes. And we have no control over where – in what chromosomes they can fit in. These recombinant vectors have already been used in some clinical trials, including gene therapy – e.g introduced into the cells of a sick child, a child who has a mutated gene that makes him/her very sick. So a “repairing gene” – a normal gene – is introduced. It’s a human gene – not foreign DNA, and done consciously, wilfully. But there’s not “will” in the case of the vaccine. 2 out of 10 kids who had this method had major problems because the repairing DNA had been inserted in an “unfortunate place – oncogenes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oncogene] – genes with the capacity to produce cancer. If you leave them alone there’s no problem, but if you disturb them, modify their function, their expressions, they will lead to a cell proliferation – possibly cancer – these 2 kids developed leukaemia (2003 report). This is called “insertional mutagenesis” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insertional_mutagenesis] – mutations of the genes, where the gene structure gets modified.

Another risk related to vaccines using a virus as a vector, like the Adenovirus, which is foreign to our body, is that it can trigger unwanted immune reactions than can disturb the desired vaccine response. The body, not knowing what it is dealing with, feels overwhelmed and can attack anything and everything.

Some immunotherapy has led to immunotoxicity – ie unwanted immune responses which can range from auto-immune disease to far worse – e.g. a fatal systemic inflammatory response. In a trial of 18 people 1 died.

RNA cannot reach/integrate into the chromosomes.

So there are 2 risks: the risk of insertion for the DNA vaccine and of immunotoxicity.

With PfizerBioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Sputnik vaccines there’s a risk of viral recombination, where viruses of the same kind share/exchange g.m. (which is the reason that normally RNA cannot be inserted into DNA and vice versa). So the question is of 2 RNA viruses or 2 DNA viruses . Recombination (exchange of g.m.) is most common amongst viruses of the same type/family, though not exclusively. It’s less frequent, but such recombination (not of same type or family) can make the virus either more dangerous or less dangerous – but unpredictably. Swine flu (H1N1) was a triple recombinant. For this to happen, a cell must be infected by 2 viruses at the same time – which is very unlikely. But this – the vaccinating g.m. and the infecting gm = a recombinant virus. The frequency is extremely low. 1 in 10 million to 1 in 100 million. For an individual the risk is so low as to be negligible. But at the level of the population of the whole world it’s a significant risk when you vaccinate a billion people. So 10 people could have this recombinant virus that intrudes into the DNA from the RNA – and thence infect others with a potentially more virulent virus. The consequences could be global! Since this is new and not been tried on a general global population it only makes sense to use the tried and tested vaccine methods. The Chinese at least used technology previously tested over years and years even if they didn’t complete phase 3 of the clinical trials before putting it on the market. 3 people in the same area and the same age can have very different symptoms. So add to that a new unpredictable virus with a new unpredictable vaccine method and…???

So why not use technology that’s long been used if the cure is possibly worse than the disease. Security is not compatible with urgency (financial and political). Safety first!

Text no.4:

A propos the anti-Covid-19 vaccine.

Neither conspiracy theory nor blind belief

Paul Lannoye 17/12/2020

Google translated from here: https://www.kairospresse.be/article/a-propos-du-vaccin-anti-covid-19-ni-complotisme-ni-croyance-aveugle/

 

In Belgium, as in all European countries which have adopted containment measures that are difficult for all to live with, the end of the tunnel is announced very soon thanks to anti-Covid vaccines. Several vaccines will be available in a few weeks; their advertised effectiveness is around 95% … according to the producers. All that remains is to obtain marketing authorizations from the European Medicines Agency: a formality considering the very short deadlines provided.

The spokesperson for the Security Council, Doctor Yves Van Laethem, has repeatedly insisted that collective immunity can only be ensured by vaccines, provided that vaccination coverage of at least 70% is acquired. .

But for that, it will be necessary to reassure and convince the reluctant not only of their effectiveness but especially of their harmlessness. Anyone who takes issue with this rhetoric or cites the long-term risks or side effects of hastily made and licensed vaccines are classified at best as anti-vaccine ideologues, at worst as conspirators. Brushed aside the most founded objections and reluctance in the face of uncertainties, ignored the yet proven facts which undermine the vaccinalist doxa of Mr Van Laethem.

Yet the facts are the facts; we can ignore them but we cannot deny them: they are more valuable than beliefs.

I submit them here to a critical examination:

1.

It is generally accepted that the development of a new vaccine takes an average of 10 years, which is confirmed by both the scientific literature and data from the World Health Organization (WHO). It can be noted, moreover, by consulting these same WHO data i that no vaccine is operational to fight against the most devastating viruses that have appeared in recent decades; no vaccine is cited as available for the deadly diseases of AIDS, Ebola fever, severe dengue or Chikungunya. With the Covid-19, we will have in less than a year of vaccines presented as effective thanks to a fast-track procedure and following clinical trials carried out by the manufacturers whom we are asked to trust. It is hard to believe that the same guarantees of safety can be obtained from clinical trials conducted at a few sites for a few months as with trials conducted at many different sites for several years. We will remember the episode of the vaccine developed in emergency by GlaxoSmithKline during the H1N1 epidemic in 2009. After two years of widespread use of this vaccine in Finland, the vaccine vigilance system had highlighted a risk of narcolepsy for 6 months after injection in children and adolescents. A study published by the British Medical Journal in 2013 confirmed these results for the UK. There are a total of 1,500 cases of narcolepsy in Europe and 80% of the victims are children. ii As a reminder, narcolepsy is a chronic and incurable neurological disease which manifests itself in the form of sudden and acute drowsiness appearing n ‘ anytime during the day and anywhere. It damages mental function and memory and can only be cured with expensive drug treatments.

2.

The vaccines that will be available very soon, produced by Pfizer / BioNTech and Modern respectively, to which must be added Curevac, are of a new type. They use biotechnology by injecting the RNA encoding the viral protein to make the infectious virus antigen produced by the cells of the vaccinated person. This is a first for which risks of a specific nature are to be feared. As the molecular geneticist Christian Velot points out in a recent expert report carried out as Chairman of the Scientific Council of CRIIGEN, the risks of the appearance of recombinant viruses and insertional mutagenesis are real. But he insists that anti-viral vector immunity can also directly interfere with the desired vaccine efficacy, concluding that current vaccine candidates require in-depth health and environmental assessment incompatible with urgency. iii This evaluation did not take place and will not take place if nothing changes. In order to speed up the marketing of this type of vaccine, the Council of Ministers of the European Union and the European Parliament iv adopted on July 15, under an urgent procedure, without debate or amendments, a regulation allowing producers of vaccines against Covid-19 to escape the requirement to carry out an environmental impact and biosafety study beforehand. This derogation from GMO legislation completely violates the precautionary principle, the basic principle of the Treaty on the functioning of the European Union. * Only a small minority of MPs dared to oppose this decision. Added here is the risk of not taking into account the side effects as a consequence of the little hindsight available, the ecological risk and ultimately health related to the possible spread of recombinant viruses potentially more dangerous than the virus than the we pretend to fight. An action for annulment of this new European regulation with the General Court of the European Union has been brought by six associations (the CNMSE, Terra SOS Tenible, LNPLV, EFVV, AIMSIB and Children’s Health Defense Europe) considering that nothing justifies the abandonment of the precautionary principle under the pretext of urgency.

3.

The negotiations carried out by the European Commission with pharmaceutical companies took place in the greatest opacity, which MEP Michèle Rivasi denounced on several occasions: neither the pre-purchase agreements negotiated in secret, nor the raw data of clinical trials, nor the selected efficacy criteria, are available. What seems certain, at the very least, is the clause, according to which the responsibility for defective products will fall on the producers but not for damages resulting from undesirable side effects, which will be borne by the States! It is quite obvious that the big winners in this agreement are anyway the vaccine producers who are guaranteed a captive market without financial risks.

4.

The basic premise, when negotiations are initiated between two parties, is that of good faith that is attributed to its interlocutors. In this regard, one is entitled to question the trust that should be placed in the statements of pharmaceutical companies producing vaccines. With regard to Pfizer more specifically, it has been established that there have been multiple convictions against this company over the past 15 years v. It should be noted in particular that Pfizer pleaded guilty in a case of false advertising relating to several drugs in the USA in 2009 and paid a fine of $ 2.3 billion to avoid any judgment. It’s fair to say that Pfizer is not the black sheep of the pharmaceutical industry; most of its competitors have a record that is hardly more flattering. We’re looking for a white sheep.

5.

You have to be wary of announcement effects. This is the obvious conclusion when we look at the long list of dashed hopes after premature claims about the efficacy of vaccines on the market. Two particularly dramatic episodes have taken place recently. They are indicative of the inherently dangerous nature of a vaccine race that ends up forgetting the basic ethical principles of medical research.

The case of dengue haemorrhagic fever: botched clinical trials

In 2015, a vaccine developed by Sanofi was shaping up to be a miracle of planetary magnitude. It was a world first, after twenty years of research and 1.5 billion euros of investment. From this announcement, voices were raised in the scientific community to warn about the inconclusive results of the first clinical trials. The enthusiastic Philippine government launched a disastrous vaccination campaign: 500 children died and several thousand suffered severe hemorrhages. It was found that the risk of severe dengue was 7 times higher in vaccinated children under 5 years old than in unvaccinated ones. Clinical trials in phase 3 after reanalysis showed that the history of dengue was not taken into account. The program was eventually terminated.

A vaccine against malaria currently being tested in Africa vi

In January 2020, an article published in British Medical viiand signed by several experienced epidemiologists and experts in the African context, revealed the adverse effects of GSK’s vaccine, Mosquirix, which has been being tested in Africa for several years. After relentlessly researching the adverse effects in the reports exchanged between the manufacturer and the health authorities (WHO and the European Medicines Agency), the authors concluded as follows: “the toxicity data are catastrophic: no more meningitis, more cerebral malarias and doubling of female mortality among vaccinated persons ”. It would have made sense to stop the experiment immediately, given these disastrous results. But the decision was quite different: launch a new study to see if the vaccine really increased the risk of cerebral malaria (often fatal) and the mortality of baby girls vaccinated. Worse, this new study was scheduled without the informed consent of parents, with the spurious argument that handing over your baby to caregivers was implied consent. This manifest violation of the rules of medical ethics was denounced in a new article from the BMJ on February 24, 2020 viii.

As a conclusion

All the facts mentioned above agree to raise legitimate questions about the relevance of a vaccination campaign in a context where information relating to the effectiveness of vaccines is strictly advertising and not very explicit and where the possible risks for the vaccinated people. are ignored. Even more serious is the leap into the unknown in the large-scale use of RNA vaccines.

Strengthening everyone’s immune system is a risk-free choice: reducing the pollution that weakens immunity, ensuring everyone has access to a healthy and balanced diet, encouraging the use of useful vitamin supplements (vitamin D) and in the form of trace elements (zinc), encouraging a healthy lifestyle (regular physical exercises, and outings in the fresh air) constitute a plan for immunity where everyone wins… except the multinational drug companies and the polluters of all categories

Remember that vaccination is a medical act. In this regard, it requires rigorous and objective information about the possible risks that each patient runs in relation to the expected benefits. In addition, it is a preventive medical act. In the absence of reliable data on the effectiveness of the vaccine for each individual, at a minimum, it would be necessary to be able to justify its benefits to society as a whole, given the high cost of the operation and the lack of reliable forecasts available. We are asked to believe in the merits of a choice by remaining blind and deaf to all the signals which warn us.

Yet another prevention policy is within our reach. Strengthening everyone’s immune system is a risk-free choice: reducing the pollution that weakens immunity, ensuring everyone has access to a healthy and balanced diet, encouraging the use of useful vitamin supplements (vitamin D) and in the form of trace elements (zinc), encouraging a healthy lifestyle (regular physical exercises, and outings in the fresh air) constitute a plan for immunity where everyone wins ix… except the multinationals of drugs and polluters of all categories. Oddly enough, all of this is missing from the discourse of politicians and experts.

One final word: The seasonal influenza virus vaccine has been available and widely recommended for decades. It has never eradicated the virus or prevented the thousands of annual deaths from the flu.

Some further quotes about science from Weber’s The Problem of Social Consciousness In Our Time (1957):

(while the tendency to an excessive emphasis on the dialectical method  is criticisable, he at least applied it to many concrete aspects of the society of his epoch)

“That scientific observations and calculations have nothing to do with false consciousness is absolutely right. Scientific data are in themselves innocent and betray no sign of the “capitalist mode of production.” Correct facts are to be found in the most corrupted ideologies and will remain correct facts under any form of society. It is never this or that correct or false detail, it is always the basic attitude we take, the special form and meaning things receive at our hands, in which the influence of our social existence (again: not simply economy) and its reflection as ideology must be detected. Only if Marx’s thesis itself is taken correctly and attention is turned from innumerable details (which can be argued back and forth to no avail for eternities) to the general character of the processes of life — only then can the all-pervasive influence of our social existence be properly traced in whatever field one may choose for investigation.”

“The age of decaying bourgeois society, the age of science par excellence, is the most unscientific through which mankind has ever passed, and the law of the dwindling force of cognition is accompanied by the law of diminishing quality in all branches of material and spiritual production, characteristically enough with the exception of production for war.”

“Nowadays scientists responsible for or involved (objectively speaking) in production-crimes have rightly been accused in public for their distortion of scientific facts, for their outright lying and concealment with respect to the far-reaching consequences which modern production processes have for us, for their lack of courage to protest and to tell the truth — which they know.”

“What about scientists who have raised their voices and have protested against the insanities propelled by their colleagues, by business and government? Analysis of such protests shows that they are (valuable as they may be in other connections) nearly always characterized by inconsistency and confusion. Even in the few exceptional cases where the correct slogan is adopted and a clear, unconditional stop is demanded, consciousness about the source of the insanity and the only remedy against it is again completely lacking or at least not manifested. There is not one scientist who, after having relieved his conscience, has used his authority to call upon the people and to engage in a real fight. Inconsistency and moral cowardice dominate the field — each scientist approached with the demand to go beyond mere oral protest (which, of course, must remain ineffective if not driven farther) has answered with evasions or a clear-cut decline. One was just writing a book or an article in which he would “speak” about the subject; another had anyway “so much to do” and could not go along; a third waited for a conference and a fourth perhaps for a genuine American spring. At all events: Those who had knowledge and authority and with it the power and the responsibility for action fell back and left the disquieted people in the lurch.

Then there is the mass of those scientists, scientific workers, laboratory technicians, teachers, etc., who may or may not “know what is going on” but are, like the masses themselves, not responsible for our social existence and its course towards a catastrophe. Concerning this category it must be pointed out that the consciousness of masses, classes and social groups in bourgeois society is subject to the law of ignorance and isolation as the most general and powerful law of our social existence. The material basis for this law is furnished by the national and international division of labor and the extreme specialization both of the sciences and within the sciences in the framework of competition and the fetish-character of commodities. Modern man is an isolated atom rather than a fully developed social being; a little screw in a tremendous mechanism alien to him rather than a self-asserting individual in a community clearly recognizable in its structure. The slave in ancient society, ignorant as he may have been, had more knowledge about social relations than today’s most learned specialists; he, like the serf, knew exactly who oppressed him, what the nature and the product of his labor was, what quality it had and how it was used.”

“Up to 1848 (roughly speaking) the general trend of thought was that man had come to master his social existence with the help of reason and science. This was in line with the revolution in which man seemed to take destiny in his own hands; it was also in line with the development of the productive forces and the progress of technology, which seemed to provide him with all he would need in the future. Now, with the stabilization of bourgeois rule, it turned out that social existence had mastered man and isolated him hopelessly from all others with whom he saw himself entangled, in one way or another and even as worker against worker, in the merciless struggle of competition. Industry and science benefited the rich, not society as a whole, and both became instruments of oppression and enslavement. Simple human and social relations, simple regardless of what could otherwise be said against them, had imperceptibly changed into a most horrible plague: relations between things. Money and Capital, the abstract expression of the new relations, emerged as the sole regulating and connecting factors in a totally reified society under which the common human ground had vanished.”

“A kind of social schizophrenia overwhelms the consciousness of man, manifesting itself first of all in splitting off enthusiasm for science from its political side, namely the social obligations of science. One has to be scientific and to behave rationally in order to make a living and to survive in the competitive struggle, but for the very same reason one has to shun passionate feeling, conviction, humaneness and responsibility towards the whole. In a word: One has to behave unscientifically and irrationally as a human being and thus affirm the irrationality of the system. This social schizophrenia establishes itself as a veritable impersonal institution which enforces onesidedness, human indifference and hypocrisy in every sphere of life. On the one hand, the bourgeoisie furthers, protects and recognizes only those sciences, ideas, methods, teachings, arts and so forth which are useful or indispensable for its own existence, for industry, business and political rule. On the other hand, much apologetic, confusion, distortion and sham-opposition is needed for the deception of the people. The bourgeoisie therefore assigns thousands of specialists to a fixed task, throws thousands of petty and obedient scholars into the social-economic web, buys off thousands of “oppositional” politicians, turns thousands of “rebellious” artists and ideologists into respectable citizens, looks benevolently upon thousands of apostles, cranks, sect-founders, bohemians, scribblers, reformers and “radical” fools living like criminals at the verge of society and cementing its crevices.”

” Scientific “detachment,” further, reveals itself to be fierce political partisanship, objectivity to consist of subjective selection of facts fitting preconceived simplifications”

“The self-appointed “elite” man is the one who closes the circle in the decline of cognition, for he is the first vulgar person who turns science into ideology, who abuses science and in whose hands it becomes deadly. Leonardo da Vinci destroyed his design for a submarine out of fear that it would be misused. Einstein, in contrast, induced Roosevelt to produce A-bombs, with which he unchained the deadliest force ever put in the service of capitalist competition in war and peace. Was it fear, naïveté, hope or something else which moved Einstein? It was, in any case, his social existence, the logic of the system which pushed him in a disastrous direction. It was thus false consciousness, ignorance of political science, blindness with regard to social implications and the connection between all sciences if he could not even calculate the first consequence of his step and believed that the bomb would not be used without the “utmost necessity” in the sense in which the bourgeoisie itself understands this term. One has to grasp the dialectical nature of things, which imbued the production of the bomb with its own logic — the bomb was actually used wantonly, with political deception of the people, and the horrible new branch of production had to be pushed further and further. Let it be repeated: The bourgeois character of the “abstract” sciences (which “as such” contain no ideological material) cannot be detected in themselves but in their theoretical interpretation. Let it be repeated, too: In bourgeois society, science cannot benefit the people, it benefits the system and its parasites (general assertion of its bourgeois character) and remains a potential, not an actual friend of mankind. The alienation of man from his work is reproduced in the alienation of science from its social purpose, and both harden the antagonism between physical and intellectual labor in which reason has no place. ”

“A letter by Einstein to the editor of The Reporter sums up the point in a rather tragic manner. Having been instrumental in what was to follow from the construction of the A-bomb (secrecy; restriction of scientific communication, freedom and conscience; deception of the people and political persecution) he commented on a series of articles by Theodore H. White under the title “U.S. Science: The Troubled Quest.” In these articles it was said “that centers of intellectual life were troubled by recent Federal actions concerning scientists.” The New York Times of Nov. 10, 1954, from which the story is taken, noted: “Dr. Einstein has been an outspoken critic of these actions. When Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer was denied security clearance by the Atomic Energy Commission, Dr. Einstein said: ‘The systematic, widespread attempt to destroy mutual trust and confidence constitutes the severest possible blow against society.’ ” Then followed Einstein’s letter to the editor of The Reporter:

You have asked me what I thought about your articles concerning the situation of the scientists in America. Instead of trying to analyze the problem, I may express my feeling in a short remark: If I would be a young man again and had to decide how to make my living, I would not try to become a scientist or scholar or teacher. I would rather choose to be a plumber or a peddler in the hope to find that modest degree of independence still available under present circumstances.

After the letter, the New York Times wrote:

In Princeton, Dr. Einstein’s secretary declined to elaborate on this comment. In publishing the letter, Max Ascoli, the editor of The Reporter, said that it was an honor but “hardly a pleasure to publish this letter from Albert Einstein.” The comment will be freely used by enemies of the United States, he said. [This is divine: As if it were the fault of the “enemies” that “something” is utterly rotten in the United States!] But he added that the freedom to protest, which Dr. Einstein used in making his comment [this is divine again: Einstein was asked for it, but Ascoli surely expected him to be a “good boy” who never uses any “freedom”!], can still [!] be afforded here. Our country must maintain a good record on this score, not just a better record than do the totalitarian nations, Mr. Ascoli said in an editorial comment.

That is all that came out of a vital issue, and the story confirms what we already know. You can, especially if you are Einstein, still express your feeling and become a “protester” who audaciously uses such freedom, but you will not attempt to analyze the problem, let alone with full documentation and in its full social and scientific impact. It is an “honor” to print a statement by a great man, but hardly a “pleasure” because it reveals a little of that truth which it should be the highest honor and pleasure for any non-totalitarian or honest paper to publish.”

“Business is going on in science as in all other spheres of production! 100 different kinds of toilet-paper are produced because people must go into business, must stay in it and expand — scientists, lecturers and students produce for the same purpose en masse. Three or four kinds of toilet-paper would represent a rational production and be sufficient for any need — three or four scientific papers among each thousand would provide for all that is required in the field. The rest is useless duplication and sham-production which has nothing to do with human or scientific needs, but much with business, competition (also among the universities, which are run as business institutions) and a totally crazy system maintaining itself through tremendous waste. Wherever we look there is the dialectical unity of opposites and transformation of opposites into opposites. Material production progresses and incites scientific work as science progresses and incites material production, yet one is simultaneously as rational and irrational as the other. Material production cannot find its general purpose and science cannot define its own subject-matter — both are separated from their human end; both are driven on by blind, external laws; both are governed by false consciousness. Rationality is thus achieved through irrationality and irrationality through rationality, both turning wildly into each other and finally leaving rationality chiefly in scientific methods, laboratories, computers, generators and the means of production, while irrationality appears chiefly in production as a whole, in H-bombs, guided missiles, gases and bacteria for warfare, jet-fighters, insecticides, chemicals and so on down to 100 different kinds of toilet-paper.”

“The theoretical thinking of each epoch, thus also that of ours, is a historical product which assumes at different times a very different form and therewith a very different content. The science of thinking is thus, like any other, a historical science, the science of the historical development of human thinking. And this is also of importance for the practical application of thinking to empirical fields. For the theory of the laws of thinking is, firstly, by no means a once and for all established “eternal truth,” as the common sense of the philistine imagines with the word logic. Formal logic itself has remained, from Aristotle till today, the field of vehement debates. And dialectics even has till now been more exactly investigated only by two thinkers, by Aristotle and Hegel. But just the dialectic is for today’s natural science the most important form of thinking, because it alone offers the analogon and therewith the method of explanation for the processes of development occurring in nature, for the connections in general, for the transition from one field of investigation to another.”

Professor of immunology interview reveals scary aspects of messenger RNA

https://vimeo.com/557172132

He says that a large majority of mRNA spike proteins, which have now been shown to be toxic, get into the bloodstream and can infect various parts of the body (brain, heart, etc) but also can be passed onto others through blood transfusions, and even through breastfeeding, potentially causing bleeding in babies, and, through infection in the ovaries, possibly causing infertility.

Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is likely responsible for deaths of at least 10% of elderly patients of those who died following vaccination

https://www.bmj.com/content/373/bmj.n1372

“The expert group was established at the end of February 2021 to look into the cause of the first 100 reported deaths of nursing home residents who had received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. …Although the mortality rate in nursing homes is generally very high and the deaths of some nursing home residents after vaccination was anticipated, the Norwegian Medicines Agency wanted to determine whether the vaccine had possibly hastened any deaths and to gain a clearer understanding of the risks and benefits of its use in frail elderly people. The review reported on 19 May and concluded that a causal link between the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and death was considered “likely” in 10 of the 100 cases, “possible” in 26 cases, and “unlikely” in 59 cases. The remaining five were deemed “unclassifiable.””
In other words, probably at least 10% and possibly as many as 36% of elderly people who died after having been vaccinated were killed (or had their deaths “hastened”) by the Pfizer vaccine. This report is already almost 2 weeks old and yet has been given virtually NO publicity in the media. Imagine how this might be replicated on a global scale. And yet any critique of this by the holocaust deniers is put down as being “anti-vaxxer”.

Because of unusual death from vaccine, Belgium stops giving Johnson & Johnson vaccine to under-41s…unless they’re homeless!!!

https://www.brusselstimes.com/news/belgium-all-news/170976/belgium-stops-giving-johnson-johnson-vaccine-to-under-41s-vaccination-taskforce-famhp-death-ema-risk-benefits-analysis/

“The vaccine will continue to be used for the home vaccination of the elderly, and those in precarious situations such as the homeless, which is an important priority in the campaign. On Tuesday, Beke already stated in the Flemish parliament that the aim of giving every adult their first dose by 11 July could be in jeopardy. “If we cannot count on those vaccines, we will only achieve 85% vaccination coverage by 11 July,” he said. On 20 April, the EMA’s safety committee (PRAC) already announced that a “possible link” between rare blood clots and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was found. While it stated that the blood clots should be listed as “very rare side effects” of the vaccine, the Agency confirmed that the overall benefit-risk analysis remained positive, and did not recommend an age limit. Now, Belgium’s health ministers asked the EMA to carry out a new benefit-risk analysis for the vaccine, in function of age.”

Another report in Flemish apparently says it’ll continue to be given to undocumented people as well.

The Israeli People’s Committtee report on adverse side-effects of Covid, April-May2021
https://dialectical-delinquents.com/covid1984-latest/2021-2/may-2021-covid1984/english-report-side-effects-april-may2021/

“The silencing mechanisms of the Israeli health system regarding the adverse events related to the corona vaccine, and the denial of their severity and worrisome scope, combined with the fact that the mainstream media in Israel have ignored adverse events and avoided reporting them, have created a situation whereby the Israeli public is almost completely unaware of the existence, nature and prevalence of the post-vaccination adverse events….From our inquiry a disturbing image has emerged of the high rate of serious adverse events, observed in proximity to receiving the vaccine, even among young people. Many adverse events are life-threatening, and regretfully more than a few ended in death….here are our main findings:

We received 330 reports of deaths occurring in proximity after the vaccination (90% up to 10 days after the vaccination). 64% are men. According to the ministry of health’s statement: only 45 deaths occurred in proximity after the vaccination.

 According to data from the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), during January-March 2021, in the midst of the vaccination operation, there was a 18% increase in overall mortality in Israel compared to the tri-monthly average mortality in the previous year. In fact, the period of January-March 2021 is the deadliest one in the last decade, with the highest overall mortality rates, when compared to the corresponding months over the last 10 years.

Among the age group of 20-29, the increase in overall mortality rate is even more dramatic. In this group, during the same vaccination period, January-March 2021, there has been a 30% increase in overall mortality compared to the tri-monthly average mortality in 2020.

A statistical analysis of data from the CBS combined with information from the ministry of health leads to the conclusion that the mortality rate amongst the vaccinated is estimated at 1:3000 (1:18000 for ages 20-49, 1:5000 for ages 50-69, 1:1100 for ages 70+). According to this assessment, it is possible to estimate that the number of deaths in Israel, which have occurred in proximity after the vaccination, currently stands at about 1600-1700 people.

There is a high correlation between the number of people vaccinated per day and the number of deaths per day, in the range of up to 10 days post vaccination, in all age groups. For ages 20-49 – a range of 8 days from the date of vaccination to death; for ages 50-69 – 5 days from the date of vaccination to death; for ages 70 and up – 3 days from the date of vaccination to death.

The risk of death after the second vaccination is higher than the risk of death after the first vaccination.

Up until the publication date of this report, a total of 2646 reports of adverse events have been recorded by The Israeli People`s Committee, and the reports continue to flow in. These reports indicate damage to almost every system in the human body. They also highlight the incomprehensible gap between official Israeli media reports and what is really happening, enabling a “two worlds” situation due to journalistic failure to sense, identify and report on what is actually happening in citizens` real-life.

The accumulated post-vaccination adverse events in our database is the outcome of our work with very limited resources and despite many kinds of government’s pressures aimed at concealing this critical information from the public eye. Therefore, we believe that our database of vaccine-related adverse events reflects a very small fraction of the real picture, which is about 1% of the actual number of cases according to our assessment.

This assessment is added to the fact that around 250000 people did not show up to get the second dose of vaccine, despite all massive social and occupational pressure of the green passport. We believe that the majority of them decided so due to experiencing adverse effects following the first vaccine dose.

There are close similarities in the reports of adverse events from countries with relatively high vaccination rates, with hundreds of death reports, as well as reports of damage to many human body systems.

In our analysis, we have found a relatively high rate of cardiac-related injuries. 25% of all cardiac events occurred in young people below the age of 40, the most common diagnosis in these cases being myocarditis or pericarditis.

Additionally, a high prevalence of massive vaginal bleeding, neurological, skeletal and skin damages have been observed.

It should be noted that a significant number of adverse events reported are related, directly or indirectly, to coagulopathy (myocardial infarction, stroke, miscarriages, disruption of blood flow to the limbs, pulmonary embolism).

The reporting of adverse events from hospitals and HMO clinics has been very low, and there is a tendency for a diagnostic bias that excludes the possibility of a link between the adverse events and the vaccination. There are probably many thousands of unreported cases. We get growing numbers of reports about this phenomenon from medical staff within hospitals. The general impression is that hospitals seem to be dealing with a chaos and confusion regarding the way to handle growing numbers of vaccine injured patients while at the same time to keep them out of records. Many doctors in emergency rooms nowadays begin their anamnestic inquiry by the question: “When were you vaccinated?” yet write nothing about it in discharge letters.

The general policy regarding adverse effects seems to be “over-protective” of the idea of continuing the vaccinations at all costs. In this atmosphere, and in stark contrast to the accepted medical codes according to which mortality and morbidity caused after any medical treatment should be attributed to the treatment itself unless proven otherwise, most Israeli doctors avoid raising reasonable medical suspicions about the potential contribution of the vaccine to new adverse effects. Instead, doctors, hospitals and media all talk in one voice that says: “It has nothing to do with the vaccine, until you prove it completely”. This is, of course, just a smoke screen aimed at preventing the truth, which ruins the essential foundations of differential diagnosis and brainstorming based medicine, and whose consequence is a breakdown of normal and scientific medicine.

In light of the extent and severity of post-vaccination adverse events we are witnessing, we would like to express the committee’s definite position that vaccinating children is both dangerous and lacking any medical basis. It may lead to adverse events, similar to those observed in adults (including young adults from age of 16), which could result in the death of completely healthy children. The committee believes that the intention to vaccinate children, while putting in danger their lives, their health, and their future development, has no medical justification since the coronavirus does not endanger children at all.

According to US VAERS system 7 deaths in ages 0-17 were reported in relation to Covid 19 vaccination during 2021, 6 of them of Pfizer Biontec. We hope that the radical idea of vaccinating children against the coronavirus will soon be taken off the table; and if not, that it will be completely rejected by most of the parents around the world.

Never has a vaccine injured so many! The American VAERS system reveals 3409 reports of mortality amongst vaccinated people in the United States in the first 4 months of 2021. This datum reflects a rise of thousands of percent from the annual average, which stood at 108 reports of post-vaccination mortality per year, whilst the difference in vaccination rate (in comparison to influenza vaccination) is less than 40%. In other words, more post-vaccination deaths have been recorded in the VAERS system during a single vaccination campaign than from all other vaccines combined over the preceding three decades. See the chart below.

In light of all the above and the detailed information ahead and for the sake of the good, reliable and advanced medicine, for all people and from the pure intention, we would like to hereby declare the statement that all branches of medicine should agree about: “Once you apply new medication of all sorts to mass people and have insufficient knowledge about its true safety, all adverse effects that follow must be regarded as related to this medication until proven otherwise. This is the only way to obtain the true information, to ensure maximal safety surveillance and to make sure that non-medical motives will have no influence on the process of evaluating and learning the true nature of this medication and its influence on people.”

Belgium: appeal by doctors against use of children as guinea pigs for the pharmaceutical industry

https://www.kairospresse.be/nos-enfants-ne-peuvent-pas-etre-les-cobayes-de-lindustrie-pharmaceutique/

The campaign to promote widespread vaccination against Covid-19 is intensifying at the cost of the most basic caution about its potential consequences for public health.

There are more and more insistent messages in favour of vaccinating children. For example, the German Medical Association is recommending compulsory vaccination for children from kindergarten onwards from the start of the school year 2021-2022.

We believe that it is time to appeal to reason to the Belgian Health Authorities and the government.

First of all, it should be remembered that the vaccines currently administered to adults are experimental vaccines for which phase 3 clinical trials are underway. This explains why these vaccines currently only have a provisional marketing authorisation. In other words, all those who are vaccinated today are, for the most part, unknowingly participating in a world-class trial campaign.

The reality today is that many questions remain unanswered and unsupported by scientific evidence about the safety, efficacy and even usefulness of vaccines as they are now being widely used.

…The risks of potentially fatal coagulopathy, already listed in the United States in the VAERS adverse event reporting system and in its European equivalent, Eudravigilance, have been wrongly minimised by the health authorities.
As early as 10 March, the association “Doctors for covid ethics” called on the EMA (European Medicines Agency) to withdraw approval for the use of genetic vaccines, all of which are implicated(1).
Furthermore, there are credible reasons to believe that these same vaccines are likely to alter fertility, gestation and reproduction. A thorough investigation of this issue should at least be conducted before taking the risk of sterilising an entire generation(2).
Finally, there is another potentially devastating effect of vaccination, immune evasion, which leads to the creation of mutants that have two potential effects, that of infecting a younger population and that of causing more deaths than in the absence of vaccination(3),(4)

…It is known that, at least for the initial strain of the virus and the first variants to appear, the risk of serious covid for young people and even more so for children is very low. The essential criterion of effectiveness would therefore be that of reducing the transmission of the virus by contaminated people.

However, the trials carried out by vaccine producers were not designed to measure the reduction in transmission risk(5). It is therefore not known whether vaccines prevent or significantly reduce transmission.

Furthermore, while it is hoped that the majority of those vaccinated will recover without consequences, it is not possible to predict how many will develop delayed immune disease.

Contrary to the optimistic statements of many of the most highly publicised experts, there is no certainty that current vaccines are truly effective.

…The risk of mortality from Covid 19 for children is around 0.002%. It is therefore totally unjustified to vaccinate children and even adolescents against a disease that does not threaten them.

Unless we consider that it is morally acceptable to make children play the role of guinea pigs, without them being able to expect any benefit for their health, we declare that the vaccination of children against Covid 19 must be prohibited and that it is the duty of parents to refuse it

Israel: vaccine-resistant strains may force yet another lockdown
https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/305595

An Israeli friend writes:

“I doubt each and every new declaration concerning “new and dangerous” variants, basing myself on nothing other than the insanity of it all and the fact that the Israeli health authorities lie continuously… The fear mongering is just so over the top, especially now with the fear-mongering campaign for vaccinating children (and infants in the near future) that includes blatant lies about children-hospitalisations from Covid etc. (easily contextualized and debunked bet alternative voices from the medical and scientific profession), that you can’t
believe anything they say…

They already had to apologize and retract the existence of a new Chilean
variant, a fact which the report you sent doesn’t mention, as well as most of the Israeli media…

https://www.latercera.com/nacional/noticia/descartan-existencia-de-variante-chilena-del-covid-19-que-se-habia-reportado-en-israel/75GH45ENOFEOPIWRV2D6M636HU/

https://www.world-today-news.com/israel-discards-chilean-variable-of-the-covid-and-recognizes-a-regrettable-error-in-the-information-that-was-disseminated/”

I replied:

“But what do they get from saying this? Surely saying the vaccine is possibly useless against new variants makes a mockery of the whole vaccination programme? They’d have more to gain from covering it up, no?”

He replied:

“You’re right, I guess, although it seems to me that they want to maintain a fear from the virus even after “everyone” is vaccinated, so I’m not sure what their strategy is, if there is one. So far they have been reassuring the public that the vaccines are “probably”, or to this-or-that extent, good for the other existing variants (when in fact they don’t really know), while at the same time alarming continuously through the media about new people arriving to Israel with the Indian or Mongolian or Utopian variant…”

A brief summary of the Israeli People`s Committee Report of Adverse Events Related to the Corona Vaccine, April 2021

https://4a1b9d73-4c47-4f3b-bb08-e515be8958ca.filesusr.com/ugd/3db409_3c4b29f97a7b4e2fb1d8d178ab138b91.pdf

“Never has a vaccine injured so many….While the Prime Minister of Israel and senior officials of the Ministry of Health brag that Israel serves as a global model for nationwide vaccination, and while they boast that Pfizer has chosen us to be the experimental country thanks to the advanced technological systems of our HMOs [Health Maintenance Organizations], the state has systematically shut down all monitoring and tracking systems, which are designed to identify and alert of adverse events that occur in proximity of receiving the vaccine. This irresponsible conduct by the Ministry of Health during this mass operation providing an experimental treatment to millions of people, regardless of whether such conduct is negligent or intentional, has led to an unprecedented flood of thousands of serious adverse event reports after the vaccine on social media, which seems to be the only forum that still allows people to share their experiences. Surprisingly, such widespread phenomena have not received any media coverage or attention from public officials….

*We received 288 reports of deaths occurring in proximity to the vaccination (90% up to 10 days after the vaccination). 64% are men. According to the Ministry of Health’s figures: only 45 deaths occurred in proximity to the vaccination.

*According to data from the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), during January-February 2021, in the midst of the vaccination operation, there was a 22% increase in overall mortality in Israel compared to the bi-monthly average mortality in the previous year. In fact, the period of January-February 2021 is the deadliest one in the last decade, with the highest overall mortality rates, when compared to the corresponding months over the last 10 years.

*Among the age group of 20-29, the increase in overall mortality rate is even more dramatic. In this group, during the same vaccination period, January-February 2021, there has been a 32% increase in overall mortality compared to the bi-monthly average mortality in 2020…. “

Of course, these do not necessarily automatically indicate a link between the vaccine and the “adverse events”, but the fact that there seems to be no mechanism for reporting, when reports are easily available for the UK (for instance), is indicative of the extremely cavalier attitude of the Israeli state. This, on top of the comparison with deaths for previous years, seems, in the absence of any other explanation, like a cover-up.

2nd report from The Israeli People’s Committee on the barriers to reporting side effects of the vaccines (in Hebrew)
file:///tmp/mozilla_nick0/%D7%93%D7%95%D7%97%20%D7%AA%D7%95%D7%A4%D7%A2%D7%95%D7%AA%20%D7%9C%D7%95%D7%95%D7%90%D7%99%20%D7%90%D7%A4%D7%A8%D7%99%D7%9C%202021-1.pdf

Translation of part of it:

“From the many testimonies brought to our attention by doctors and
medical staff, we will give here as examples selected quotations from a
letter sent to the committee by a medical staff member in the internal
medicine department of one of the largest hospitals in the country,
which describes a collection of hospitalization cases in his department,
which indicate consistent problematic conduct, suffering from
carelessness and lack of professionalism, and which largely stems from the fact
that the Ministry of Health has never issued clear guidelines on what
should be reported and what should not. The descriptions include a
variety of pathologies that led to hospitalization, and which appeared
in close proximity to Pfizer vaccine, including ITP, neutropenia, chest
pain, vasculitis, fever, speech disorder, high blood pressure, acute
renal failure and bradycardia. In all cases, physicians refrained from
linking the vaccine to the phenomenon that led to hospitalization, did
not even mention the vaccine in the patient’s medical file, and did not
report the case to any external party – a fact that impairs differential
diagnoses and is an obstacle to establishing accurate information. For
example, the letter said: “It was not reported to any external party and
if the issue arose from the family, they were simply told that there was
no connection between the things because bradycardia takes a long time
to develop.” In the context of another case, the letter stated: “Even
chest pain near the vaccine with an increase in troponin in a patient
without a cardiac background was not treated as possible results of the
vaccine and of course was not reported to the Ministry and was not
discussed with the patient.” Another example: “I took the patient to the
ward and asked him about the reason for his hospitalization. He did not
address the vaccine at all and only after I asked did he mention that
the speech disorder appeared a few hours after the vaccination. Then the
doctor on duty came to question him, where the patient did not mention
the vaccine. Even after I gently hinted to the doctor that it might be
worthwhile to check if there was a connection to the vaccine he did not
address my words.An intensive care consultation was called, the on-call
doctor examined the patient and told the doctor on duty that she should
consult the senior doctor about differential diagnoses. I gently hinted
to her that it might also be worthwhile to check if there was a
connection to the vaccine, but she rejected me with the words ‘OK, okay,
there could be a thousand reasons for this’ …”. Another example:
“Although the diagnosis of vasculitis is abnormal, as well as following
it with chemotherapy, the doctors did not think that the diagnosis
should be linked to the vaccine, despite the strange coincidence of the
two patients without similar background diseases with the same
diagnosis, bed by bed, both about 10 Days after the vaccine (the patient
with myocarditis was released and then returned after a few days). I
asked a senior doctor how he knows it is not related to the vaccine and
he simply replied that ‘it is a disease that develops over a long period
of time, so it may not come from the vaccine’ …”.
According to him, what makes the situation even worse is the fact that
doctors, who are based on the principle of evidence-based medicine,
refrain from reporting a phenomenon that is not known in the medical
literature, and in his words “even if he (the doctor) thinks
independently, in the end in order to give a diagnosis in the patient’s
case it must be backed up in the professional literature. If there is no
literature that talks about it (or if the literature is not written in
the textbook accepted by the internal medicine doctor) he simply will
not write it. If it has not been investigated, then it does not exist.”
This evidence indicates a diagnostic tendency, which outright rejects
any connection between the side effect and the vaccine, and thus causes
a significant under-reporting of vaccine-related side effects from
hospitals and clinics.”

In the group you can find doctors, nurses, health workers, psychologists from all over Italy, all united in the fight, not against Covid-19, but against the vaccine.

France to use the Sorcerer’s Apprentice’s largely untried mix-dose vaccines after AstraZeneca increasingly avoided
https://www.ft.com/content/db295bb9-d1fe-47f8-bc0f-eb40dfaf545f

“France has become the second country after Germany to recommend that younger people who have had a first dose of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine be given a different jab for their follow-up shot. The mixed-dose approach has been recommended by health experts in both countries — despite there being little clinical trial data to support it …The World Health Organization reiterated its position on Friday that there was “no data on interchangeability of vaccine platforms”, noting further research was needed. The move comes as the European Medicines Agency said it is also probing a possible link between the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and four serious cases of unusual blood clots in the US, where it is currently being rolled out. It is not yet being distributed in the EU or UK…. … Élisabeth Bouvet, a vaccine expert and member of the HAS, said…“It is really a choice based on safety. …Given that the protection of the Covid-19 vaccines begins to diminish after three months, these people need an additional dose,” she added. “The idea is to give mRNA vaccine as a second dose for this population in a ‘prime-boost’ strategy.” Even in the absence of clinical data, Bouvet said that they believed the approach carried low risks of side effects and was likely to offer people additional protection given that the Covid-19 vaccines all aim at the same spike protein on the coronavirus. “We think that this approach will work,” she said. “There is no reason to expect any particular side effects with mixed dosing but it would be good to study the immune response it creates.” Peter English, a retired Public Health England consultant in communicable disease control, said it was “reasonable” to use other vaccines…”

Note: “the protection of the Covid-19 vaccines begins to diminish after three months“. Also note how they say “they believed the approach carried low risks of side effects “. Isn’t “science” wonderful! Having originally based it’s criteria of “objectivity” on clinical trials, science has now become no better than “belief” regardless of evidence. Touching wood is about as scientific.

As curfew and massively repressed social life depressingly continues in France, it may be worth being reminded of similar things amongst the slave states of the USA before the official abolition of slavery: “If the planters [slaveholders in the United States] did not always agree on practices for maintaining discipline, they all considered certain police and surveillance measures to be indispensable in the closed world of their property. Thus … the foreman was not to leave the plantation without permission, but was to keep a constant watch on the work in the fields, periodically search the cabins of the Negroes for weapons or stolen goods, and carry with him the keys to the various buildings on the farm. Curfew began around eight or nine o’clock in the evening and no slave was to leave the “quarters” where rounds were made to ensure his presence. No slave was to leave the plantation without a pass specifying the reason and probable duration of his absence, and most planters only exceptionally allowed their Blacks to visit their relatives living on other estates on Sundays. On the contrary, they were careful to limit their contact with the outside world.” (Michel Fabre, Esclaves et planteurs, Julliard, 1970, p. 201-202)

Belgium: interview (in French) with pathologist who lodged legal complaint against the medical order and the directive sent to all doctors in Belgium in January 2021 that vaccination is an obligation and that doctors must promote the vaccination programme or risk facing severe sanctions

“TOUT EST FAUX” L’ordre des médecins au service du polique

Amongst other things, he points out that there have been virtually no autopsies for those who have died (as compared with those who died from AIDS-related illnesses in the past), so it’s impossible to say whether someone died either because of Covid or died of something else whilst having Covid. See also this[https://www.researchgate.net/publication/341392038_No_Autopsies_on_COVID-19_Deaths_A_Missed_Opportunity_and_the_Lockdown_of_Science] – “Despite the increasing number of published studies on COVID-19, in all the examined studies the lack of a well-defined pathophysiology of death among patients who died following COVID-19 infection is evident. Autopsy should be considered mandatory to define the exact cause of death, thus providing useful clinical and epidemiologic information as well as pathophysiological insights to further provide therapeutic tools.” However, the doctor’s claim that this comes from an order from the WHO is not true (see this: http://www.scientifique-en-chef.gouv.qc.ca/en/impacts-of-research-cat/covid-19-who-prohibits-autopsies-false-french-version-only/).

Bits and pieces about Israel:

State limits access to tests in order to increase vaccinations
https://www.timesofisrael.com/serology-tests-scaled-down-to-encourage-vaccination-report/

“Responding to an increase in demand for serology tests, which detect antibodies in the blood of people who have recovered from the disease or been vaccinated, the Health Ministry has decided to restrict access in an effort to encourage vaccination, Channel 12 reported Tuesday. Formerly, serology tests, which are administered by health providers or in hospitals, were available to anyone.…Since the policy was announced, there has been an increase in demand for the test, especially among young people in Arab and ultra-Orthodox communities, who are reluctant to get vaccinated, the report said. Health providers have struggled to meet increased demand for the tests, and the Health Ministry also wishes to limit tests in order to encourage vaccination.”

***

The Director General of the Ministry of Health (Hezi Levi), responsible for the vaccination programme, and Israel’s “Corona Project Manager” (Nahman Ash) were almost certainly involved in a vaccination scandal in the 1990s involving illegal anthrax experiments on Israel’s young soldiers[ https://www.972mag.com/why-did-the-israeli-army-conduct-anthrax-experiments-on-its-soldiers/]. Hezi Levi was the Chief Medical Officer for the IDF at the time and Nahman Ash was his second-in-command. “The trial’s organizers exploited the high motivation and innocence of the soldiers, most of whom were attending courses or were at the start of their military service, and whom they approached to participate in secret experiments. Crucial information was hidden from the soldiers during the recruitment process; they were forbidden from informing their unit doctor about their participation, and most of them didn’t even tell their parents. All this, along with the exploitation of troops that occurs within a hierarchy, completely undermined the informed consent [http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/ethicist-asa-kasher-idf-can-conduct-medical-experiments-on-soldiers-under-certain-conditions-1.467928] given by the soldiers. The process was so tainted by defects that it’s doubtful whether the soldiers’ signatures can even be considered as agreement.”

Israel’s Ministry of Health has published totally incorrect information about the Pfizer vaccine, saying it is FDA APPROVED ( the FDA is the USA’s Food and Drug Agency). The People’s (sic*) Committee says it has filed a motion in the High Court regarding a request for the Ministry of Health for a corrective publication regarding the deception involved in FDA APPROVED, to open a criminal investigation against those responsible for the misleading publication and to take disciplinary action against those responsible. This is a very significant document.

UK: official report on adverse side effects of vaccines – 704 fatalities
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-vaccine-adverse-reactions/coronavirus-vaccine-summary-of-yellow-card-reporting#annex-1-vaccine-analysis-print

It seems to me that the massive publicity given to the couple of deaths from blood clots of the AstraZeneca vaccine is possibly a cover for something far worse.

As usual they have their get-out clause – that the vaccine did not necessarily cause the reactions

“When viewing the vaccine analysis print you should remember that:

Reporters are asked to submit Yellow Card reports even if they only have a suspicion that the medicine may have caused the adverse reaction. The existence of an adverse reaction report in the print does not necessarily mean that the vaccine has caused the suspected reaction.
It may be difficult to tell the difference between something that has occurred naturally and a suspected adverse reaction. Sometimes these events can be part of the condition being treated rather than being caused by the vaccine.
Many factors have to be considered when assessing whether the vaccine has caused a reported adverse reaction. When monitoring the safety of vaccines and medicines, MHRA staff carry out careful analysis of these factors.

For a medicine or vaccine to be considered safe, the expected benefits will be greater than the risk of having harmful reactions. It is important to note that most people take medicines and vaccines without having any serious side effects.”

Even if the qualifier “Reporters are asked to submit Yellow Card reports even if they only have a suspicion that the medicine may have caused the adverse reaction” means excessive over-reporting and that just 10% of the adverse reactions were caused by the vaccine that’s still a hell of a lot of deaths that have not had publicity, as compared with the 2 that have. Why are the deaths by blood clots considered to be definitely associated with the AZ vaccine whereas the other 702 including those from Pfizer (or 711 if you add on the 9 deaths possibly associated with unspecified brands of vaccine) are not definitely associated with the vaccines of AZ and Pfizer? Another thing that seems to indicate at least shoddiness on the part of this report is that it was published on April 1st and talks of 2 deaths from AZ, yet the next day the newspapers reported 7 deaths ( https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/apr/02/covid-further-rare-blood-clot-cases-found-in-oxford-astrazeneca-recipients ). Certainly not deliberate, but indicative of the need to be very wary of the facts and figures given about all this considering they not only seem to have got it considerably wrong but don’t even bother to mention the fact that they got it wrong.

My suspicion following the publication of the list that the focus on blood clots covers up other deaths possibly caused by the vaccine stems from my lack of comprehension of why they should only focus on blood clots as an anomaly. It doesn’t seem any more anomalous than the other deaths, and in fact is proportionally less so than many of the other deaths. Look at this (deaths from various years around 2013 because I couldn’t be bothered to dig further to get the same year for each of these deaths…some of those medical sites you have to read half the report until you get to what you’re looking for, so, Mr. Impatient that I am, I chose the ones that focused on what I wanted pretty quickly). I presumed that deaths from blood clots meant deaths from venous thromboembolism (though in the list they say the deaths were caused by Immune thrombocytopenia and Thrombocytopeni, but venous thromboembolism is not mentioned), but I may be wrong.

Number of deaths from blood clots in UK 2013 –

“Over the 3-year period of 2013–15, the average number of deaths from venous thromboembolism in England was 12640 per annum.”

64,000 is roughly 5 times the amount of 12640. But 51 is significantly over 5 times the amount of 7. So why focus on the 7? (originally 2). Why are blood clots more of an anomaly relative to normal illness-specific fatalities?

1645 is roughly an 8th the amount of 12640. But 6 (for AZ) is almost the same as 7 for blood clots. So why focus on the 7 for blood clots? Why are blood clots more of an anomaly relative to normal illness-specific fatalities?

3/4/21:
UK reports 7 blood clot deaths and 30 cases of rare blood clots among recipients of AstraZeneca jab; 9 deaths in Germany

“While many countries have resumed use of the vaccine after pausing their programmes, others have remained nervous. Among them, Canada has suspended use of the jab for people under the age of 55, while Germany has suspended routine use of the jab in the under-60s. The latter has noted 31 cases of CVST after giving 2.7m doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, 19 of which were associated with low platelets, and nine deaths. At present, most of these rare clotting events appear to be occurring in women under the age of 65 – but quite why this is remains unclear.”

This 2015 article about deaths following the flu vaccine [https://www.heraldopenaccess.us/openaccess/death-after-a-flu-shot-a-viewpoint], finishes with “At worst (unsuitable vaccine and unsuitable recipient), vaccination may result in the collapse of immunity, severe exacerbation of existing health conditions, and rapid development of fatal complications. The above considerations do not call for utopic ‘personal’ flu vaccines, but they do emphasize the critical importance of evaluating individual PEI status prior to vaccination, and using this parameter as a novel stratification/fitness index. This index should be thoroughly refined, and key parameters of pre-existing humoral and cellular immunity having the greatest impact on the immune response to vaccination should be extensively examined. Novel national infrastructures, including banks of regularly updated personal serum and medical histories should be created, and novel methodology should be developed to ensure fast computerized individual evaluations, which is critical in a pandemic period. This approach will inevitably cause criticism as complicating an already complex problem. However, it may help break the deadlock of the current policy of influenza vaccination, maintain human health and save lives. “The race is on, the stakes are high, and the world is nervously watching”. With the Covid vaccines there is NO EVALUATION OF INDIVIDUAL PEI STATUS PRIOR TO VACCINATION (I’m presuming – hopefully rightly – that PEI here stands for “Personal Experience Inventory”). Moreover, the ‘experts’ advising the continued use of the AZ vaccine are using the justification that Covid itself carries a greater risk of blood clotting than the vaccination without acknowledging that the introduction of the same disease through direct vaccination injection into previously healthy people must carry a similar risk.

Israel: 29 page document criticising the Pfizer-Natanyahu vaccination programme [file:///tmp/mozilla_nick0/The%20Israeli%20People%20Committee%20-%20Interim%20Conclusion%20Report%20-%20April%202021.pdf]

“The Israeli People’s Committee has uncovered a multitude of malfunctions and failures at the administrative, ethical and legal levels during the COVID-19 vaccination campaign at the beginning of 2021 in Israel. In this document, we aim at presenting and elaborating the main features of these malfunctions, which have led to severe damages in many Israelis in the short term, and sadly to possible future damages. It seems that the entire country got caught up in a medical-social chaos, where the leadership has enabled a situation of fear and uncertainty to run its course out of control, and even contributed to its further enhancement. But most of all, we cannot ignore severe suspicions shared by all the committee members, that the fundamental sin, which led to the chaos and its casualties, is the way in which two very powerful personages, prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Pfizer CEO Dr. Albert Bourla, agreed upon a massive vaccination campaign in Israel that is unprecedented in scale and nature. A vaccination campaign that lacks effective safeguards for public safety, that is devoid of any concern for people who may be harmed by the vaccine, and that has allegedly guaranteed to encompass populations, for which the safety of the vaccine has not been tested (pregnant women and their fetuses), and later also children, for whom the need to be vaccinated is totally unclear, while pushing aside any safety considerations. From this exact episode, where both parties came to an agreement regarding the vaccination campaign, which involved a wide variety of ethical and safety violations, an unrestrained drama was initiated that has revealed itself to be impulsive, neglectful and reckless. The agreed upon vaccination campaign concerns matters of life and death, yet is being conducted in an amateurish, irresponsible and aggressive manner, and it led to the political arena taking over the medical arena and bending it to its needs, while paralyzing all alarm systems, monitoring measures and open scientific discussion. Unfortunately, most of the medical system collaborated with this unsupervised process, starting with the higher ranks, and ending with field doctors – some actively, some by keeping quiet from fear of reprisal.”

Significant flaws in the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine trial – letter sent to The Lancet but never published

The following letter was sent to The Lancet at the end of last December, by Michal Haran, M.D., Yitshal Berner, M.D. MPH, Moshe Royburt, MD, MHA:

Michal Haran is an Israeli Hematologist (with an immune-deficiency disease – or something similar, I’m not 100% sure – due to which she’s wheel-chair ridden) who I just recently heard about, following her involvement in the Corona debate in general and the debate about the Pfizer vaccine specifically. I respect her very much, especially her delicate and emphatic way of debating and the simple and down-to-earth way in which she presents her thoughts (mostly in Hebrew-language platforms). Needless to say, she’s ostracized by many of her colleagues and presented by most of the mainstream media as a “Corona denier” and “anti-vaxxer”…

About her:
“I am a senior hematologist. My areas of interest are: Thrombosis and hemostasis; Malignant and non-malignant abnormalities of the immune system with emphasis on CLL; Mitochondrial dysfunction in hematological malignancies; Environmental exposure and nutritional interventions in both hematological and neurological disorders. I am also interested in the humanistic aspects of medicine and the way in which we can preserve them in the face of the growing complexity of medical systems.”

Significant flaws in the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine trial

Michal Haran, M.D., Yitshal Berner, M.D. MPH, Moshe Royburt, MD, MHA.

The global Covid-19 pandemic has not only led to a harsh medical reality, more so in some countries than others, but has also devastated the economies of multiple parts of the world. It is therefore not surprising that a rush to develop vaccines for the disease has engulfed the world. Pfizer was the first to complete a (shortened) phase 2/3 trial, the results of which were reported in the New England Journal of Medicine 1. Unfortunately, this article reveals significant flaws in the conduction, analysis and reporting of the data and departs significantly from the usually high standards of this prestigious journal.

In fact, to the best of my knowledge it is unprecedented that the corresponding author of this paper is an employee of the sponsoring company. This immediately casts a long shadow on the objectivity of reporting in the paper and the editorial decision to publish it 2. Indeed, a careful reading of the work reveals multiple problems.

First, the efficacy of the vaccine in preventing the spreading of the virus and reducing infectivity, which is the most important factor in its ability to ameliorate the devastating effects of the pandemic, was not tested. Quite surprisingly, the effect of vaccination on overall number of virus-shedding individuals was not assessed, even though it is established that a significant fraction of the infected population capable of transmitting the disease are asymptomatic 3. Only a very narrow endpoint, of patients who meet both being symptomatic and having a positive PCR test was chosen. This does not take into account the significant inaccuracies of the PCR test 4. In fact, even the large group of patients with symptoms compatible with Covid-19 but PCR-negative (not mentioned in the paper but reported in the Pfizer FDA briefing document (www.fda.gov/media/144245/download), with very minor differences between the vaccine and placebo groups) was ignored. Thus, we are presented in this paper with a seemingly very impressive relative efficacy of 95%, which in fact gives us no information regarding absolute risk (blogs.bmj.com/bmj/2020/11/26/peter-dosh…, nor infectivity of the patients and very limited data regarding clinically significant end-points of severe disease, ICU admission or mortality. There is also no data regarding immunological studies in the various groups of patients. This data was only provided on a very small group of young and healthy patients in the phase I paper 5. This is important not only for efficacy, but also for assessment of the risk of unintended immunological sequelae. One cannot assume, based on such a small and selected group of patients, that there will be a good titer of virus-neutralizing antibodies and a favorable Th1/Th2 response in elderly patients or those with comorbidities known to have an effect on immune function.

The adverse effect section of the paper conspicuously lacks any laboratory studies, which is surprising based on the fact that in the phase I group there were abnormalities of blood counts 5. It is also known that mRNA vaccines can be transferred to the liver 6, thus one would expect that all blood chemistries including liver and renal function tests would be evaluated to ensure that indeed there is no risk of end-organ damage.

Understandably, the brief period of this clinical trial, two months, was an outcome of the general urgency caused by the pandemic. However, to conclude that “Safety over a median of 2 months was similar to that of other viral vaccines” is highly misleading. The mRNA vaccine technology is novel and as opposed to other vaccines, involves the transfection of cells with genetic material , and only phase I studies of such vaccines have been reported prior to this work. One significant and recognized risk of the expression of a foreign protein on self-cells is the induction of severe auto-immune reactions 7. Since there is no information on the distribution of the vaccine in different cell types and organs following intramuscular injection (in contrast, for example, to another vaccine candidate, for which such detailed information has been published 6), it is very difficult to assess the relevant risk. Certainly, a very short follow-up period does not provide a long enough time window to conclude that the risk for auto-immune reactions does not exist. The paper totally ignores this aspect.

The paper only briefly mentions the highly recognized risk of vaccine-mediated disease enhancement, which the authors are fully aware. They wave this risk off as “theoretical”, and assess it to be unlikely based on data from 10 patients over a very short period of time. Clearly, this significant risk should have been much more fully addressed.

Finally, the fast pace of the publication of this work has led to multiple inaccuracies. For example, it is unclear how two patients in the vaccine group who, as reported in the FDA briefing document (www.fda.gov/media/144245/download), were hospitalized with respiratory symptoms and findings in imaging studies, are not reported in the paper as severe adverse events. Also, there is an unexplained discrepancy between the number of patients with AIDS that are reported as participating in the study and the number of such patients for whom there is available safety data (only one). This is very important, as the inclusion of a significant number of HIV-positive patients purportedly alleviates the concerns of the potential risks in this patient population. These risks stem from with the significant immune dysregulation in these patients, as well as the potential reverse transcriptase activity that could inadvertently lead to the unwanted incorporation of the genetic material of the vaccine into the genome.

In Summary, the way in which the data is presented in the paper creates a false sense of security regarding the efficacy and safety of the mRNA vaccine. This is extremely concerning, as the publication of this paper is important in promoting the rapid approval of the vaccine in numerous countries. I believe that due to the enormous effect the results of this trial have on the entire population world-wide, steps should be urgently taken to clarify all those issues. …

“The passing of a bill that would allow obligating employees to get vaccinated against the coronavirus or undergo an occasional COVID test has stalled for two weeks due to opposition from the education and finance ministries. Health Minister Yuli Edelstein announced a month ago that he plans to enshrine this into law, but after the ministries expressed their opposition and legal challenges raised by the attorney general, there were no further attempts to advance the bill. The bill would obligate employers, including the state, to condition the arrival of an employee to the workplace on receiving a vaccine or presenting a negative test for the coronavirus. The bill would also apply to the Education Ministry and therefore to teaching staff as well.

Police handed out the most coronavirus fines in Arab localities in February, even though per capita infection rates in these localities were lower than they were elsewhere, according to data from the Enforcement and Collection Authority, which enforces police fines. An analysis of the data indicates that 37 Arab localities lead the top 40 localities list, with only three Jewish localities making the cut, and that there seems to be little connection between the per capita infection rate in these localities and the number of fines distributed. For example, in Modi’in Illit, where there were 46 patients for every 1,000 people, only 1.7 reports were given for the same number of residents as they were in Tamra, where 22 reports were given to the same number of citizens even though there were 10 patients for every 1,000 people. “

Official (possibly) UK government report on side effects of Pfizer vaccine lists 227 deaths amongst other horrors –
https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/968413/COVID-19_mRNA_Pfizer-_BioNTech_Vaccine_Analysis_Print__2_.pdf?fbclid=IwAR0KmcN1rx9rCW9snE9ip2PhAp0BQPFLjoKSnqp5iy3MKRh-I326zynJ74c

Not absolutely sure that this is a genuine report from 9/3/21 (61 pages long ) or a fake one, as it’s not easy to check. But it’s the first thing that comes up if you type: <em>UK reports received between 9/12/20 and 28/02/21 for mRNA Pfizer/BioNTech</em> into Google. It’s been there for 3 days; given that Google seems to be vigilant about anything they consider is fake news, I’d have to say that this is genuine. Even more so given that this claims to be a government report, preceded by a standard government https: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/ . If it was fake, given that it pretends to be an official government report, you’d have thought that Google would have pretty quickly taken it off. But I’m obviously not 100% sure.

It claims to cover all UK reports received between 9/12/20 and 28/02/21. Here are the essential results:

Denmark suspends use of AstraZeneca vaccines after blood clots and death https://www.thelocal.dk/20210311/denmark-suspends-use-of-astrazeneca-vaccine/…followed by Norway, Italy, Austria, Estonia, Latvia, Luxembourg and Lithuania
https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/mar/11/denmark-pauses-astrazeneca-vaccines-to-investigate-blood-clot-reports

“AstraZeneca, which developed the vaccine with the University of Oxford, said the safety of its shot had been extensively studied in human trials and that peer-reviewed data had confirmed the vaccine was generally well tolerated. Its vaccines were subject to strict and rigorous quality controls and there had been “no confirmed serious adverse events associated with the vaccine”, it said. The British government defended the vaccine and said it would continue its rollout. “We’ve been clear that it’s both safe and effective … and when people are asked to come forward and take it, they should do so in confidence,” Boris Johnson’s official spokesperson told reporters.”

Lies as usual. Back in mid-September I wrote about this story (https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-oxford-vaccine-trial-put-on-hold-as-volunteer-suffers-suspected-serious-adverse-reaction-12066991 ) that hit the headlines for 5 minutes before being buried under endless pictures of people not maintaining social distancing. It reported “The Oxford coronavirus vaccine trial is facing a “challenge”, the health secretary has admitted, after it was put on hold due to a suspected serious adverse reaction in one of its volunteers…The nature of the adverse reaction and when it happened are not currently known.” However, after 4 days the trials were resumed ( https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-54132066 ) without any official indication of what had gone wrong. But the New York Times reported ( https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/08/health/coronavirus-astrazeneca-vaccine-safety.html ) that the just mentioned volunteer in the UK trial had been diagnosed with transverse myelitis ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transverse_myelitis ): “Symptoms include weakness and numbness of the limbs, deficits in sensation and motor skills, dysfunctional urethral and anal sphincter activities, and dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system that can lead to episodes of high blood pressure….sensation to pain or light touch is impaired. Motor weakness…mainly affects the muscles that flex the legs and extend the arms…Back pain can occur at the level of any inflamed segment of the spinal cord…all four limbs may be affected and there is risk of respiratory failure…Lesions of the lower cervical region (C5–T1) will cause a combination of upper and lower motor neuron signs in the upper limbs, and exclusively upper motor neuron signs in the lower limbs. Cervical lesions account for about 20% of cases…A lesion of the lumbar segment, the lower part of the spinal cord (L1–S5) often produces a combination of upper and lower motor neuron signs in the lower limbs. Lumbar lesions account for about 10% of cases.”

And a bit later a second coronavirus vaccine volunteer suffered the very same rare neurological condition ( https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/09/21/second-coronavirus-vaccine-volunteer-suffers-rare-neurological-condition/ ) – “A 37-year-old woman suffered a rare neurological condition that left her struggling to walk…” Marvelous the way they say “the two cases were unlikely to be associated with the vaccine…” A rare disease amongst 2 people volunteering for the trial of the vaccine. Pure coincidence! This article also says that only one third make a full or near full recovery from this ‘transverse myelitis’ “with most of their symptoms gone” after 2 years. And now there’s a death from blood clots. But of course, anybody saying this has anything to do with the vaccine is clearly a conspiracy theorist anti-vaxxer.

Norway doesn’t alter its policy towards Pfizer vaccine despite deaths (from end of January – https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/1/19/norway-says-policy-on-pfizer-biontech-vaccine-use-unchanged ) More here (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-01-26/norway-may-refine-vaccine-strategy-after-elderly-deaths-pm-says – Norway May Refine Vaccine Strategy After Elderly Deaths, PM Says)

“Having weathered the pandemic better than most, Norway suddenly made international headlines this month after revealing that more than 30 people — all over 70 and all already sick — died not long after being vaccinated against Covid-19. Solberg says the intense global interest in the news was “exaggerated” as she tries to ensure the development doesn’t put people off inoculation. “We don’t believe there’s any problem with the safety of the vaccines,” Solberg said in an interview with Bloomberg Live that aired on Tuesday. “But we will maybe not give them to the most vulnerable of the elderly, because that might speed up a process where they were what we would say at the end of life phase anyway,” so, “that probably is not what we will continue to do.”

Finland: regulatory authority reports 11 vaccine-related deaths due to underlying conditions ( https://www.helsinkitimes.fi/finland/news-in-brief/18639-regulatory-authority-reports-11-vaccine-related-deaths-due-to-underlying-conditions.html )

The development of “Health” passports
https://www.timesofisrael.com/cleared-for-takeoff-world-eyes-health-passports-to-facilitate-travel/

Apparent proof that you’re “Covid-free” is that you’ve had the vaccine, when there’s a great deal of evidence that the vaccine, even if it protects you against severe symptoms, doesn’t by any means automatically make you incapable of infecting others. Yet another lie that, constantly repeated, becomes a “truth”.

10/3/21:
French video of March 6th conference of dissident doctors
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hCo3vY9bNo

Amongst some of the things said, it reveals that the W.H.O. has not published any deaths from the vaccine (this seems peculiar since, for instance, deaths from vaccines against swine fever back in 2009-10 were published). It has however published the fact that 177,763 people have had seriously bad side effects from the various vaccines over the previous 2 months, and it compares it with the serious side effects from Ivermictin over 40 years – just 4,603 recorded cases of serious side effects in 480 months. The French state has banned doctors from prescribing Ivermictin. It also points out that on March 1st, Israel, following its massive vaccination campaign, has about the same proportion of fatalities from Covid as Sweden, which was never confined and has had far less of a take-up of the vaccine so far than Israel. And the same goes for South Africa.

This organisation consists of (officially, at least) 30,000 doctors, 30,000 careworkers and 100,000 “citizens”. One should, however, maybe take with a pinch of salt some of the information they’ve gleaned from an Israeli site.(http://www.nakim.org/israel-forums/viewtopic.php?t=270873 ). There will be some who’ll take this as meaning that both the conference of doctors and the Israeli site are cavalier with the truth. That should not be an automatic reaction: the site they reference, whilst having some dubious takes on things, will also have some things that are valid, and some of these should be confirmed (or not) by further research, rather than ignored.

Israel: new rules for what is called the “return to normal”
https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-reopens-all-the-new-rules-from-march-7/

“The Green Pass will be valid for participants in the trial of the vaccine being developed by Israel’s Institute for Biological Research….Higher education institutions can open, as can vocational training institutes and post-high school Torah studies, for Green Pass holders only (on the condition that such institutions will enable distanced learning for students without Green Passes) under the following conditions: Up to 300 people [in a single space] at no more than 75% capacity; at least four meters separation between the teacher/lecturer and the students; clear signage declaring the facility is operating under the Green Pass. The fine for allowing the entry of a non-Green Pass carrier is NIS 5,000 ($1,500)…Indoor seating for Green Pass holders only, with a limitation of up to 75% capacity and up to 100 people. Outdoor seating does not require a Green Pass, with a limitation of up to 100 people.”

Since part of the participants in the trial naturally received a placebo, it means that the whole “green pass” thing is meaningless even in its own terms. The absence of logic in the whole Covideological onslaught mounts up by the hour. “Ideological expressions have never been pure fictions; they represent a distorted consciousness of realities, and as such they have been real factors that have in turn produced real distorting effects….The despotism of a fragment imposing itself as pseudo-knowledge of a frozen totality, as a totalitarian worldview — has reached its culmination in the immobilized spectacle of nonhistory…presenting illusory escapes from a universal autism.” (here)

UK: Ve haf vays of making you healthy

“Ministers are reportedly considering making vaccination mandatory for health and care staff because of evidence that a minority of them, particularly among those from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, are choosing not to have a jab…Last week Care UK said it only wanted to hire new staff who had had the vaccine, while another care provider, Barchester, said it wanted all of its staff, including current workers, to have had the jab by 23 April, adding that if they did not they would not be considered for shifts…Yvonne Coghill, a British NHS manager who currently serves on the NHS Equality and Diversity Council…who sits on the advisory board of the Health Foundation’s Covid-19 impact inquiry, which explores the pandemic’s implications for health inequalities in the UK, said she could not envisage a scenario where NHS staff would quit in disproportionate numbers due to being forced to take the vaccine. “Most people are pragmatic and will weigh up the pros and cons of any decision to leave the service in terms of how it would ultimately impact them and their families. People have mortgages to pay and mouths to feed,” she said. “I believe healthcare workers are very sensible people. Of course a few people might have strong views about the vaccine being made mandatory and leave, but do I envisage a mass walkout because of it? Definitely not,” she added.”

October study states vaccines “may sensitise vaccine recipients to more severe disease than if they were not vaccinated”

“COVID‐19 vaccines designed to elicit neutralising antibodies may sensitise vaccine recipients to more severe disease than if they were not vaccinated. Vaccines for SARS, MERS and RSV have never been approved, and the data generated in the development and testing of these vaccines suggest a serious mechanistic concern: that vaccines designed empirically using the traditional approach (consisting of the unmodified or minimally modified coronavirus viral spike to elicit neutralising antibodies), be they composed of protein, viral vector, DNA or RNA and irrespective of delivery method, may worsen COVID‐19 disease via antibody‐dependent enhancement (ADE). This risk is sufficiently obscured in clinical trial protocols and consent forms for ongoing COVID‐19 vaccine trials that adequate patient comprehension of this risk is unlikely to occur, obviating truly informed consent by subjects in these trials.”
Interview in French with genetician/geneticist

She says, amongst other things, that – according to Pfizer’s scientific protocol itself – the trials of their vaccine will finish in 2022, ie at least 18 months from the beginning of the trials, making explicit the fact that the whole world has been transformed into guinea pigs and making explicit the fact that to talk of “success” now has no meaning since we have at least 9 months to wait before the words “brilliant success” or “miserable failure” could be used. So the “95%” efficaciousness broadcast everywhere by the brainwashing media has no validity, especially as amongst those who have been vaccinated there have been some of who have had severe Covid symptoms, showing that it’s not intrinsically a protection against severe infection.

Indonesia threatens 1 year in prison plus a $7,000 fine for those who don’t get vaccinated

Google translate:

“ While in most countries of the world the criterion for receiving corona vaccines is old age or background diseases, in Indonesia these days the picture is the opposite. The huge country, which has a population of 267 million people on a vast area of ​​thousands of islands, has decided that one of the first groups in line for vaccines will be … everyone over the age of 18 to 59. The rationale behind this approach is that this group is the “engine” of the corona plague – many asymptomatic patients, who have multiple social connections …36,000 residents have died so far in the epidemic in Indonesia, out of 1.3 million residents infected with Corona. As in Europe, in Indonesia the second wave recorded during December-January was much larger than that recorded at the beginning of the epidemic, but morbidity has been declining in recent weeks. Indonesia has acquired most of its vaccines from China, which was the first country to develop a vaccine for corona, although it has not yet been approved for use by medical authorities in the West. The vaccine was developed by SinoVac and is widely used in China itself. The vaccination campaign in Indonesia began on January 13, and since then aims to vaccinate about 1.3 million health care workers as well as a group of police officers, public servants, teachers, athletes, journalists and more (estimated at 17 million people). Everyone will get the vaccine for free, subsidized by the authorities. But one of the significant differences compared to other countries is that the vaccine is defined as “mandatory”, although it is not yet clear what sanctions will be imposed on those who do not get vaccinated. A government minister said the penalty to be fixed by law for those who do not get vaccinated is a year in prison and a $ 7,000 fine, but the government still needs to offer the vaccine in adequate quantities to make sure residents get the chance to get vaccinated. Amnesty International has criticized the government’s statements, saying the vaccination was “contrary to human rights”. … it is possible that in the coming weeks young people and adults without background diseases are also expected to start receiving the vaccines. This group numbers about 150 million people, and the country hopes to end their vaccinations by the end of 2021. Vaccinate first those who are important to the economy … Critics said the government decided to do so in an attempt to preserve the economy by first vaccinating the most efficient, working-age workers.”

France: the state is considering the renewal of lockdown in 20 departments on top of 6pm – 6am curfew (four hours longer than the curfew in Myanmar!)

This includes the regions known as PACA (Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur). There were 4543 deaths from Covid there from 2020 up until February 2021 (there don’t seem to be precise figures since then). In the 13 weeks of the flu epidemic (caused internationally by predicting the wrong mutation and therefore getting the vaccine wrong) of the flu season of 2017-2018 there were 13,166 deaths in PACA. This flu epidemic was never called a “pandemic” despite the fact that it was something that spread globally. I’d guess the reason why is that calling it a pandemic would devalue the term “pandemic” in people’s minds since it would be associated with a banal illness they’ve known about since an early age (subliminally the term for some evokes the notion of “panic”, though it’s linguistic base has nothing to do with it). The definition of pandemic was changed in 2009, excluding the notion of “dangerous” or “severity”, reducing it simply to its spread (redefined as a new virus, regardless of its severity, that travelled over national borders, for which there were no vaccines), the W.H.O. putting in place favorable conditions to make it possible to declare the planet in a state of perpetual pandemic. At that time swine flu was defined as a pandemic. Swine flu killed 284,000 people worldwide, over 100,000 less than the minimum amount of people killed by flu each year. Yet flu has only been called a pandemic with the Asian flu (1957-58) and the Hong Kong flu (1968-69), officially because it’s a virus that has been known about for a very long time for which there are vaccines.

The common cold can, in certain cases, lead to pneumonia: in 2017 pneumonia killed more than 808,000 children under the age of 5! I suspect this is as much news to you as it was to me when I just recently read about it. Of course, these kids were mostly from the “Third World”, so they are regarded as nothing unless they’re used as a photo opportunity for some super-rich princess or whoever. Likewise, globally 7 million people die prematurely each year from air pollution (about 10,000 of them in London, less than the 14,416 who have died from Covid there). Of course, Covid is more dangerous globally than the flu or the common cold (though less dangerous than air pollution). But I put all this here to give a sense of proportion to this so-called “health” crisis and to show that in certain parts of the world it has shown itself to be less dangerous than the flu. Many say that Covid symptoms are intrinsically more painful and more lingering that those of flu. But is this seriously the case? A bad bout of flu can lead to severe respiratory problems which, even amongst survivors, can go on for several months. Without having researched it much, which would require looking at innumerable anecdotes of accounts from flu sufferers, I suspect, though Covid has many varying symptoms, that dying of either is pretty much equally miserable in terms of a painful death.

A few words about other flues:

In 2005 in France the avian flu “pandemic” was the first item of the evening news for about 6 weeks. At the end of September 2005, David Nabarro, the newly appointed Senior United Nations System Coordinator for Avian and Human Influenza, warned that an outbreak of avian flu could kill between 5 million and 150 million people. Nobody in France died, and globally there were just 214 deaths of human beings over the 4 year period 2005-2008. This is vastly smaller than of deaths from ordinary flu annually which are estimated at, on average, between 389,000 and 850,000 people annually – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6815659/ – “a 2017 study indicated…290,000 – 650,000 influenza-associated deaths from respiratory causes alone, and a 2019 study estimated 99,000 – 200,000 deaths from lower respiratory tract infections directly caused by influenza”. Taking the lower figure of 5 million, this WHO prediction was at best 0.0043% of the actual figure. And the actual figure was at best 0.055% of the actual figures for flu. In fact, avian flu in France was used as a pretext for the development of agribusiness, shutting down small farms on the pretext that the chickens were running around freely and could contaminate not only each other but all birds and humans visiting the farms (for some basic critique of agribusiness see this).

Note the imprecision of this “between 389,000 and 850,000” figure for the annual flu deaths as compared with the apparently very precise figures for Covid. Also worth noting is the fact that never have we had daily figures broadcast repeatedly in the media for flu-related deaths. And since mid-March 2020 no figures for flu-related deaths have been published in France (I don’t know about other countries).

In France in 2009 swine flu became the pretext for an exercise in social control – with doctors forced by the state to vaccinate everybody fearing the disease who wanted to be vaccinated. Despite massive and continual state and media propaganda, less than 10% of the population took up this manipulated ‘need’ for a vaccine. The Minister of Health at the time, Rosalyne Bachelot, whose personal interests in the pharmaceutical industry were well-known, ordered 94 million vaccines (about 1½ vaccines per man woman, child & baby) from Sanofi Pasteur, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis and Baxter International at a cost of around 900 million euros to the state. Most of the vaccines were never used. As a result of the vaccine, there were 21 deaths, 4 anaphylactic shocks, 9 Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura cases, 6 multiple sclerosis cases, and 9 Guillain–Barré syndromes. The illness itself killed 613 people in France, considerably less than flu .

If it was just to make a name for himself as a martyr to social control, he succeeded but not very convincingly. It would have been more convincing if he’d seriously started to fake these passports. Some have condemned him for being corrupt. It may have been potentially corrupt if he’d tried to make a business out of it, but even then hardly something to totally condemn without nuance. Helping people avoid such social control seems admirable. Especially since it may well become mandatory for playing sport or whatever.

“Vaccine HESITANCY and SKEPTICISM have become a growing concern in recent weeks as Israel’s world-leading inoculation campaign has slowed [my emphasis – T]. Dozens attended a protest in Tel Aviv last week against “coercion,” a label widely used by anti-vaxxers. The protest featured a number of people not wearing masks, as well as comparisons between Israel’s vaccination campaign and Nazi laws, with some wearing yellow Stars of David saying “not vaccinated” meant to resemble the ones that Nazis forced Jews to wear during the Holocaust.”

Interesting story about smallpox in Moscow 1960

moscow small pox

Apparently the epidemiologists etc. are now considered heroes because they rapidly introduced anti-epidemic measures on a huge scale, isolated thousands of people who were considered to have possibly been infected, closed Moscow, and even returned trains with potential carriers of infection to Moscow. Then they quickly organized the importation of 10 million doses of the vaccine from other cities, mobilized all the resources of the country for the immediate vaccination of Muscovites. The Communist Party obeyed – for the first time in history — by doing what the epidemiologists said. They saved a huge city, only three people died. The vaccine was one that had been tried and tested for 150 years or so – not like the mRNA ones of today. And the method was targeted restrictions, not one-size-fits-all blanket lockdowns – only those who could have had contact with people who might have developed smallpox. And the quarantine followed typical methods of quarantining people that had been used for centuries – ie block a whole city but let those in the city carry on as normal (not that “as normal” in 1960 USSR was something to be recommended obviously), except those who may have got the smallpox. Now track and trace in China is obviously being used for ulterior motives and lockdowns generally are not at all targeted. But almost every class society has elements of “reason” in the way they deal with crises or potential crises even if these reasonable elements are fairly marginal (Khrushchev’s state obviously didn’t care about how many people died in the gulags), methods that a free society would probably develop fairly spontaneously and voluntarily insofar as no-one would be so narrowly egotistical as to want to either possibly die an unnecessary death or spread this possibility to other people. A critique of track and trace applies to this society but I imagine that if there were those who refused to abide by certain necessary restrictions in a free society (assuming we ever get there) that they’d be forced to abide by what the majority in that particular area demanded of them, just as in your house you and who you’re living with wouldn’t allow anybody – either amongst you or from outside – to endanger those living in it

Covid-19: Israel sees new infections plummet following vaccinations

A couple of quotes:
“In the period before the protection took effect, over 7000 infections were recorded, with just under 700 cases of moderate to critical illness and 307 deaths. No time scale or age group for these figures was given.”

“the country is not vaccinating certified recovered covid-19 patients, although the Ministry of Health website does not provide information on how someone is certified to have recovered.”

I wonder what these gaps in information mean?

Also – speaking more generally – as a friend said, there’s not much discussion about global case numbers falling very rapidly in many parts of the world this year (India being a good example), far outpacing vaccination.

Re. India – according to a French Deputy (Wonner), in India people are given immune-boosting kits that include zinc and Vitamin D, which may well be the reason for the decline in Covid infections.

Covid vaccine side effects in Israel match trials

“So far, 3.1 million people in Israel have received the first dose of the vaccine, and 1.87 million have received both doses. The side effects that have appeared are more or less as expected from the clinical trials by Pfizer, maker of the vaccine that most Israelis who have been vaccinated have received. The side effects have mostly been light and transient, but there have also been some more severe cases. 6,575 people reported some kind of side effect, including local effects at the site of the vaccination, after receiving the first dose of vaccine. 3,592 people have reported side effects following the second dose. Side effects were more common among young people than old people, and slightly more common among women than among men. One possible effect that caused concern in relation to the vaccine was an allergic reaction. 1.4 people in a million [SF: 1.4 x 3.1= 4.34. 0.34 of a person…?] suffered anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction, but not at the level of life-threatening anaphylactic shock. Another 2.9 in a million [SF: i.e. 9 ] experienced respiratory difficulties. All were treated with no long-term injury. None of these effects was reported after the second vaccine dose. Other reported allergic reactions are recognized as light reactions, such as swelling in the respiratory tracts, runny nose, redness, an accelerated pulse rate, tingling sensations, and so on. A further concern was over possible neurological effects. A total of 180 people out of all those vaccinated felt paresthesia (pins and needles) in various parts of the body after the first dose, and 69 after the second. 30 people suffered from partial or total facial nerve paralysis, but most of them have recovered. One person suffered facial nerve paralysis only after the second dose. It should be noted that facial nerve paralysis occurs among the population even without vaccination, and with similar frequency (15-30 cases per 100,000), but the phenomenon is being monitored because in both Pfizer and Moderna’s trials there were more instances in the trial group than in the control group. In addition, eleven people reported attacks of herpes (and another four after the second dose), eleven reported a metallic taste in the mouth (and another eight after the second dose), eleven reported convulsions (these people were not given the second dose), four reported a transient ischemic event (probably not caused by the vaccine, but there is no way of knowing), and two people reported having lost consciousness. Fewer side effects of all kinds were reported after the second dose. One reason could be that people who experienced the same reaction for a second time did not report it again. The main transient systemic effects were headaches, reported by 328.8 people in a million (it is likely that many more people experienced headaches but not with a severity that made them report them as a side effect), 93.2 in a million felt dizziness, 60 in a million suffered muscular aches, and 59 in a million reported a fever. Other less common effects were pains in the joints, nausea, stomachaches, tremors, sore throat, runny nose, and coughing. As mentioned, these are symptoms that appeared close in time to the vaccination, not necessarily because of the vaccination. As far as local effects are concerned, 883 people in a million reported pain at the site of the vaccination (many more people probably experienced pain but not at a level that would justify reporting it). 129.3 in a million reported swelling, and 124.6 in a million reported restricted movement in the days following vaccination. 22.8 in a million reported a change in skin color at the vaccination site, 11.5 in a million reported swollen lymph nodes. Other effects with a lower incidence were subcutaneous nodules, subcutaneous inflammation, rash, itch, and abscesses. Some of these effects were the result of the needle not being inserted properly, and were not from the vaccine itself. At any rate, they disappeared within a few days. After examining the data, the Ministry of Health has not seen fit to change its recommendations on which groups to vaccinate; the recommendation to become vaccinated applies to the vast majority of the population.”

It must be noted that this was after a relatively short period of time; longer term effects have yet to be reported. And though this was published the day after the following incident, it doesn’t mention it, presumably because there was no proof of a link between the vaccine and the illness (how many other incidents have been left out because of this lack of proof? and what would proof look like? are they, in most cases, even capable of proving direct links?):

Today (Monday) a 19-year-old boy was reported to have contracted myocarditis just five days after receiving the second dose of the vaccine for corona

The doctors who treated him noted that without treatment, his condition could have worsened and led to heart failure. Referring to the case, Dr. Abdulhadi Peruji, a pre-emergency medical director who treated the young man, noted that it could not be determined with certainty that myocarditis developed as a secondary result of the vaccine, as coronary heart disease can also cause the disease. …This case may cause panic in the public, due to the fear that the corona vaccine may lead to myocarditis in other vaccinators as well. We checked with Prof. Yehuda Adler, a cardiology expert and dean of the School of Health Professions, the Academic Center for Law and Business in Ramat Gan and a corona consultant to municipalities, whether this might indeed be a possible response to the vaccine. “I do not know the details of the case in question, but as far as I understand it is a case of myocarditis, a few days after the second vaccination. First, it is not certain that the vaccine is the cause in this case. There may be that another viral infection or corona infection, are the ones that caused the inflammation – since five days is a short period of time for the vaccine to start working. However, it is not impossible that the inflammation was caused as a result of an immunological response to the vaccine itself”

COVID-19 vaccine: 13 out of nearly 2 mil. Israelis suffer facial paralysis

“Some 13 people have experienced mild facial paralysis as an adverse after taking the COVID-19 vaccine, the Health Ministry reported, and estimates are that the number of cases could be higher. Health officials have raised questions about whether or not to administer the second dose to these individuals, but the Health Ministry is recommending that the second dose be given. “For at least 28 hours I walked around with it [facial paralysis],” one person who had the adverse effect told Ynet. “I can’t say it was completely gone afterwards, but other than that I had no other pains, except a minor pain where the injection was, but there was nothing beyond that.”As for receiving the second dose, he admits he is undecided, but says that “it is important to note that this is something rare, and I don’t want people to avoid getting vaccinated – it’s important.””I recently came across, for example, someone vaccinated who was dealing with paralysis, and decided not to give her a second dose,” Prof. Galia Rahav, director of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Sheba Medical Center told Ynet. “It is true that it can be given according to the Health Ministry, but I did not feel comfortable with it.”She added that, “No one knows if this is connected to the vaccine or not. That’s why I would refrain from giving a second dose to someone who suffered from paralysis after the first dose.”The Health Ministry stated, however, that the second dose should of course be only provided if and when the paralysis passes”

More about this

“The Israel Medical Association today (Thursday) addressed an urgent letter to the Epidemiology Division of the Ministry of Health in which it demanded that the second dose of vaccine not be given to vaccinators who experienced the side effect of paralysis in their face [SF: ie contradicting the Health Ministry’s advice that the 2nd dose should be given once the paralysis has passed] . Dr. Zion Hagai, and the director of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Shamir-Assaf Medical Center, Dr. Miriam Weinberger, demanded to receive the cumulative data on the side effect, claiming that the mechanism of development of paralysis [medical term: Patsialis] is not yet known. Another similar matter “We will have to vaccinate the children as well, otherwise we will not reach herd immunity” More than 29 million people have been vaccinated against the coronavirus worldwide – a drop in the number of vaccinated alongside a sharp increase in the number of new infections. A letter sent to the director of the Department of Epidemiology at the Ministry of Health, Dr. Emilia Anis, reads: “We are trying to understand on what basis the recommendation to continue vaccinating with a second vaccine is also based on those who suffered from an allergic reaction or facial nerve paralysis. Concern has been expressed that since the mechanism of the development of paralysis is unknown, how can we be sure that it will not return or worsen? “. Earlier it was learned that 13 Israelis, as far as is known so far, who were vaccinated with the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine against the corona virus developed shortly afterwards the “Bell’s paralysis” – paralysis of the facial nerve also known as patialis. According to a report this morning (Thursday) by Adir Janko in Yedioth Ahronoth, doctors in the health system estimate that there have been more such cases in practice. It has also been reported that as a result, there are disagreements among doctors as to whether those vaccinated should receive the second dose of vaccine or temporarily avoid it. The position of the Ministry of Health is: “A vaccinator who suffers from paralysis can receive the second dose. In general, those who suffer from a new disease should delay receiving the vaccine until after recovery. The cause of the appearance of paralysis, in most cases, is unknown. Also in a study conducted by Pfizer prior to obtaining approval for the use of its vaccine, the phenomenon was documented among several vaccinated experimenters. The report quoted Dr. Miriam Weinberger, director of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Assaf Harofeh-Shamir: “We do not know what the mechanism of this paralysis is and whether it is related to the vaccine or not. Some experts are debating whether it is really right to give a second dose after Patsialis and on what basis the recommendation is based. Routine treatment for psoriasis is by steroids, but when steroids are given, it is not possible to give the second dose of vaccine on time and it should be delayed until the end of steroid treatment. In addition, we ask ourselves whether it is right to give a second dose if the patient has developed a complication of paralysis when we do not know what is the mechanism that caused it to appear. We are asking for more information and we will contact the Ministry of Health and Pfizer in this matter. ” Prof. Galia Rahav, director of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Sheba Medical Center, added: “I believe that the conditions for recommending a second dose to those who have suffered this type of reaction have not yet matured. “According to the Ministry of Health, it can be given, but I did not feel comfortable with it. No one knows whether the complication is related to the vaccine or not. It is not yet clear whether this is really a more common complication.” In addition, last night (Wednesday) it was reported in the Channel 12 news that four people aged 80-70 and over in Israel who were vaccinated, all with complex background diseases – died after receiving the vaccine. Yesterday, according to the same report, a 75-year-old woman from Lod who suffered from many and complex background illnesses was found lifeless in her home for about two hours that she was vaccinated with the second dose. The Ministry of Health is investigating the incident as well as its three predecessors and no connection has yet been found between the death and the administration of the vaccine. About two weeks ago, a 75-year-old from Beit She’an died of a heart attack at his home, two hours after receiving the first vaccine dose for Corona at the HMO. The Ministry of Health investigated this incident and reported that it was known that the vaccinator had a history of previous heart attacks and it is estimated that there was no connection to the vaccine he received. Another case is of an 88-year-old from Jerusalem who was vaccinated and died two hours later. Hadassah Mount Scopus reports that he suffered from complex and severe long-term background illnesses.”

It should be pointed out that trials of Pfizer’s vaccine did not include the over 70s or pregnant women.

A young man who was vaccinated against corona developed a rare inflammatory syndrome

“The 23-year-old suffered from multiple systemic inflammatory syndrome in response to a corona vaccine. Khaled Abu Sabitan from the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem was vaccinated two and a half weeks ago and the next day he began to suffer from various symptoms. Within a short time, his condition deteriorated and he was taken to a clinic and then transferred
to Hadassah Ein Kerem. Prof. Dror Mevorach, director of the internal medicine department and director of the corona department at the hospital: “Khaled arrived in a very difficult situation, in real life danger. We diagnosed him with a multi-systemic inflammatory syndrome, a rare syndrome known so far only after coronary heart disease, and now for the first time it has appeared after vaccination.” “This is an immediate harm to some of the body’s systems: heart failure, kidney failure and the hemodynamic market,” said Prof. Mevorach. “The guy came to us with low blood pressure and was in mortal danger. The signs were obvious and we suspected the syndrome, which we confirmed in various tests we performed immediately.”
An interview with Abu Sabitan, a social worker at the Jerusalem municipality, revealed that less than 24 hours after the vaccination, he developed symptoms of fever, vomiting, swelling of the neck and general weakness. He was vaccinated as part of his role in a vaccination campaign for welfare workers in the city. Prof. Mevorach emphasized: “At this stage, after Khaled’s release from the hospital, we will continue to monitor his condition at Hadassah every week and ask him to wait upon receiving the second dose.”

Everything they forgot to check and tell about the vaccine for corona

דעה: כל מה ששכחו לבדוק ולספר על החיסון לקורונה

[SF: I have not included the references provided in the footnotes]

“Dr. Michal Haran, an expert in hematology and internal medicine, a senior lecturer at the Hebrew University School of Medicine, raises significant questions about the results of the Pfizer coronary research published by NEJM and points out the “holes” in the data on vaccine efficacy and safety…

The global pandemic, in all its aspects, has created an urgent need in the countries of the world for an effective and safe vaccine. Pfizer was the first to reach the finish line and summarize the results of a 2-3 phase trial within a few months. These results were presented to the FDA and received emergency approval. The decision was that despite the short time (the study was designed to last two years), there is enough information to decide with a reasonable degree of certainty that the efficacy significantly outweighs the risk. The material submitted to the FDA as well as its discussions were open to the general public. The results were also published in the prestigious medical journal New England Journal of Medicine. This combination of facts – the FDA’s stamp along with publication in such a leading newspaper – has made health authorities around the world feel confident about the vaccine. It is important to remember that this is a new technology that has not been used today in routine vaccines. …”This is the first time to the best of my knowledge where it has been openly stated that the study was planned, carried out and published by the pharmaceutical company, with the lead author being an employee of the pharmaceutical company” Reading the article published in NEJM reveals significant issues that are difficult to ignore and that can not help but raise significant question marks about the study. First, although for many years there has been an unhealthy relationship between physicians who publish results of clinical trials in leading journals and pharmaceutical companies (2), this is the first time to the best of my knowledge that the study was openly planned, conducted and published by the pharmaceutical company. … One of the topics that has received wide publicity is the effectiveness of the vaccine, of 95%. However, it is important to ask what is behind this number. Everyone agrees that the most important thing in eradicating the plague is to prevent infection. Well, it’s surprising to find that this has not been tested at all. Most surprisingly no test was done on the amount of people who have an active respiratory virus, not even a PCR test was done for the presence of the virus, although the main problem in this epidemic is infection by people who have no symptoms (3) and this is the main reason for masks, closures and frequent Tests. Instead, a very narrow end point was chosen for people who also have symptoms that are suitable for Corona and their PCR test is positive. This, without taking into account the level of accuracy of the test which can also vary from laboratory to laboratory.

The impressive figure for 95% efficiency is not an expression but a relative risk. Using the absolute risk index would reveal that this is an efficiency of 1% ” When you are not satisfied with the data in the article but go to examine the information in the report submitted to the FDA, it turns out that there was a large group of people with symptoms that fit Corona, when the difference between the groups was not very significant (about 1,800 in the placebo group compared to about 1,500 in the group This group was given the title suspected covid and even when two people who received the vaccine came to the hospital with chest X-ray findings, they were not reported to have coronary blues in a severe condition (since their PCR test was negative) nor as a grade side effect. 4 (as would be required in a person who has been hospitalized after receiving the vaccine). That is, the impressive 95% efficacy figure expresses nothing but relative risk, or in other words the ratio between the number of patients diagnosed (and we will mention again that these are people who had both symptoms and a positive PCR test) in the two groups. Using a more accurate absolute risk index would have revealed that it was an efficiency of 1% (see details in Peter Dushi’s article on BMJ’s blog). That is, the impressive 95% gives us no relevant information about the effect of the vaccine on the rate of infection (remember that this was the main goal of vaccine development in the first place, in order to achieve an effective herd vaccine in a short time) and presents very limited information on clinically significant indices such as Intensive Care – a simple calculation reveals that the vaccine should be given to 7,000 people to prevent one such event – or mortality.

Well, it can be argued that antibody formation in the general population is also important. But even with regard to this important figure, there is a worrying and conspicuous shortcoming. Surprisingly there is information about the immunological profile of only a very small number of volunteers in the first phase (5) and it should be remembered that this is a selective group of relatively healthy and young people. This information is important not only for evaluating efficacy (i.e., developing antibodies at the level required to confer protection) but no less important for possible vaccine risks. “It is known that mRNA may reach liver cells, so we would expect to have a liver function test, as well as other laboratory parameters (blood count with differentiator, kidney function, electrolytes, inflammatory indices, etc.). Neither in the article nor in the material submitted to the FDA is given Find the results of such tests ” These important indices were examined only in a selective population. Or in other words, we have no information as to whether a nursing senior living in a nursing home will have an immunological profile that ensures efficacy and safety. We also do not have such information about people with background diseases that are known to have an effect on the immune system. Vaccine safety, missing data and forgotten side effects Regarding the safety of the vaccine, one of the most notable data is the results of laboratory tests. This is particularly surprising in light of the fact that already in the selective group in the first phase, mild disturbances in the blood count were found (5). In addition, it is known that mRNA may reach liver cells, so we would expect there to be a test of liver function as well as other laboratory parameters (blood count with differentiator, kidney function, electrolytes, inflammation indices and more). Neither in the article nor in the material submitted to the FDA can such test results be found. It is also unclear how the authors of the article decide based on a follow-up period of about two months that “the safety of the vaccine is the same as the safety of other vaccines.” This is a new technology, which in contrast to existing vaccines to date involves the transfection of muscle cells by a genetic material. This technology has been tested to date in a very small number of participants and has so far not reached Phase 3. One of the dangers known and reported in the literature in such a situation is the development of severe autoimmune diseases (7) that cannot be ruled out in such a short follow-up period. Surprisingly, there is no reference at all to this problem in the article. The authors of the article recognize another significant danger which is vaccine mediated disease enhancement which is of great concern due to the fact that to date there has been no success in the development of vaccines against corona (including in pets) due to this problem. This is a very serious phenomenon because paradoxically, the person who is immunized develops a much more serious disease (with a very high risk of mortality) when he is exposed to the virus.

AIDS patients are more likely not to develop antibodies against the virus and are also at higher risk of developing autoimmune diseases or tumors of immune cells. Creating a misrepresentation of their inclusion in the study creates confidence about the effectiveness and safety of the vaccine ” This problem is particularly worrying when it comes to a population of young and healthy people whose risk of getting seriously ill if they become infected with corona is almost negligible. The authors of the article refer to this danger as a “theoretical” problem that they believe has been proven to be non-existent based on the study data, which included ten patients defined as having a serious illness, with only one reaching a respiratory condition and none dying from the disease. It is also unclear the difference between the number of AIDS patients reported in the article and the number of AIDS patients listed in the safety tables submitted to the U.S. Drug Administration (160 vs. 1). There is a great deal of significance to this issue because AIDS patients are at high risk in several respects. First, they have reverse transcriptase that can lead to the conversion of RNA into DNA and thus cause unwanted and unplanned genetic changes. It should be remembered that this is a synthetic RNA that has been engineered and it is difficult to predict what will happen if its base sequence undergoes incorporation into the DNA. In addition, these are patients who suffer from severe dysregulation of the immune system. That is, they are more likely not to develop antibodies against the virus and are also at higher risk for developing autoimmune diseases or tumors of immune cells. Creating a misrepresentation of their inclusion in the study creates confidence about the efficacy and safety of the vaccine. In conclusion, the way in which the data in the article was brought to the attention of the medical public creates a false sense of security regarding the efficacy and safety of the vaccine. This is extremely worrying because this article is not intended for experts in the field but for the general medical public, including those who are in senior positions in various health ministries around the world. In view of the importance of the matter, letters were also sent to the newspaper as well as to other parties to warn of this.”

17/2/21:

From here – https://www.kairospresse.be/article/deux-ex-vaccina/ – “According to data from Pfizer , 0.6% of vaccinated subjects presented “serious adverse events” and 0.1% “life-threatening events”. So far, official statistics say that 2.22% of those who have Covid die. On that basis you could say that Covid is roughly 22 times more lethal than the potential effect of the vaccine on the 109 million people (roughly 1.4% of the world’s population) who officially have had Covid. However, 2.22% of 1.4% = 0.0311%. That is, so far just over 0.03% of the world’s population has died from Covid. On that basis Pfizer’s vaccine could potentially kill a bit over 3 times more people than Covid has killed for the moment, but Pfizer would have to vaccinate the whole world, and Covid would have to stop infecting people totally, for the comparison to be valid.

Report on deaths related to new forms of vaccine

Translation of part of this (from 31 December 2020):

Publicity Campaign

A small clarification on the effectiveness rates of vaccines posted with
great publicity: 90, 95, 98%. I have the impression that we are abusing
public opinion, and our leaders (easy). Indeed, conventional vaccines,
which are less effective, raise the question of a second injection to
strengthen immunity, for example Astra Zeneca claims an effectiveness
rate of 70%, but which could reach 100% with two doses. However, RNA
vaccines immediately offer 2 injections. Is it to hide insufficient
efficiency? Wouldn’t they be more effective than those that show 60 to
80%? From what I’ve read on each one, it seems obvious to me, and this
display is a deception, it’s a publicity battle.

Moreover, no one knows what the terms of protection will be. We even give
the protocol to vaccinate those who have already had   Covid, which is
to say the confidence we have in this period of immunity. So multiplying
the doses by 2, renewing every 6 or 12 months, is to multiply the risks
[the possible dangers from the new vaccines] by 4.

A Bad “Good and Only” Solution

We have staked everything on a single product whose positive or negative
effects we do not know beyond 2 months, knowing that it may have some.
We have ignored, despised, hid the other possibilities of struggle, we
have been wrong about many things for months, result: the French no
longer have any trust, more than 60% do not adhere to official doctrine. This is
enough to cover the elders (with more suggested than informed consent),
which will probably decrease mortality in this population, but
insufficient for herd immunity, yet everything has been bet on the
vaccine and that immunity. It won’t work.

There is also the problem of transfers. We have already seen the great
ease of mutation of Sars-Cov-2, more than 1000 mutations described,
fortunately not in a bad sense, except for the latest which is more contagious but
not more nasty, but everything is possible and feared. Laboratories and
authorities are trying to reassure on this point, but they know it very
well, this virus, like all influenza coronaviruses, is a permanent
mutant, and all vaccines will therefore be regularly obsolete like those
for winter flu.

After these disturbing remarks on these genetic vaccines, to make the
balance, never refusing  adversarial debate, the only one which
advances towards the truth, here is a clear synthesis, of a learned
society, the Society of infectious pathology, aimed at reassuring
the population about the vaccine. Allow me also to underline what brings
us together, and what opposes us, each will form their own opinion,
everything is on the table: very reassuring, yes, but let us note
however that the mutations that can make the current vaccines
ineffective are not denied. , that the appearance of autoimmune
diseases is not denied, with a laconic “not observed” (after 2
months), while contesting those concerning those of neighboring proteins
that may be targeted (syncytin). The possibility of complications
after 6 months is ignored, ignoring that it sometimes takes years
to demonstrate them (see the thousands of narcolepsy from the H1N1
vaccine, and the hundreds of children who have died from Dengvaxia), and
finally, the existence of viral recombinations is not developed.

The bet might be a winner, but what if it isn’t? What consequences if it
loses? Especially when there are other alternatives, either immediate
medication (see what’s happening in nursing homes that treat), or
vaccines? In conclusion I will repeat the introduction of my colleague
quoted above, quoting Dr Ryan, Executive Director at WHO: “If there is
one thing more dangerous than a bad virus, it is a bad vaccine”.”

France: Five deaths after vaccine, no link proven

“In Europe, there have been 71 deaths reported following a Covid-19 vaccination – including from across the UK, Germany, Norway, and Denmark. Almost all were people aged 75 or over. The European Medicines Agency has so far said: “No death among these elderly people has been attributed to the [Pfizer/BioNTech] vaccination at this stage.” In total in France, 139 cases of severe or unexpected side-effects have been reported since the start of the vaccination campaign.”

Norway: the Pfizer vaccine is possibly responsible for the deaths of about 30 old people

“Norwegian health officials reported a small number of deaths among older people on Sunday who received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and suffered side effects. While the Norwegian Medicines Agency is now investigating the deaths — estimated to be about 30 — the regulator and Australian authorities have been quick to play down any serious safety concerns. “This group of people who had these adverse effects, and unfortunately some died, were very, very old and frail,” Professor Brendan Murphy, secretary of the Department of Health… In the US, where more than 11 million people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, health authorities are beginning to see rare instances of severe (though treatable) allergic reactions to some of the COVID-19 vaccines. They’re also investigating the case of a doctor who developed an unusual blood disorder shortly after receiving the Pfizer jab, and later died. It’s not yet known whether the COVID jab is linked to his illness.”

Note the secretary of the Department of Health’s words “This group of people who had these adverse effects, and unfortunately some died, were very, very old and frail”. They were in their 80s. The King of Norway is 83.  If he’d died after being vaccinated, would the secretary of the Department of Health have simply said “This man  who had these adverse effects, and unfortunately  died, was very, very old and frail”? Maybe Pfizer should change its name to Pfizeuthanasier or even Pfizeuthanazier and nazier.

See also thisand  this. “Norway expressed increasing concern about the safety of the Pfizer Inc. vaccine on elderly people with serious underlying health conditions after raising an estimate of the number who died after receiving inoculations to 29. The latest figure adds six to the number of known fatalities in Norway, and lowers the age group thought to be affected to 75 from 80. While it’s unclear exactly when the deaths occurred, Norway has given at least one dose to about 42,000 people and focused on those considered most at risk if they contract the virus, including the elderly. Until Friday, the vaccine produced by Pfizer and BioNTech SE was the only one available in Norway, and “all deaths are thus linked to this vaccine,” the Norwegian Medicines Agency said…“Most people have experienced the expected side effects of the vaccine, such as nausea and vomiting, fever, local reactions at the injection site, and worsening of their underlying condition.” Official reports of allergic reactions have been rare as governments rush to roll out vaccines”.

Spain, Benidorm: huge outbreak of Covid in nursing home AFTER Covid jab

“In a massive blow to Spain’s Pfizer vaccination plan, more than 65 residents and ten staff have tested positive for coronavirus at the Foietes nursing home in Benidorm just days after receiving the first Covid-19 vaccine. According to official sources, the residence previously hadn’t registered any cases for months, and most residents and staff had negative PCR tests shortly before the vaccine drive began on January 4.”

Spain: Valencia: man dies of Covid after receiving first dose of Pfizer vaccine

“The retired Spaniard had received his first dose of the vaccine on December 29, along with the rest of the privately-run home. Within days of receiving the jab, the man ‘suffered an accident’ and was transferred to a hospital where a routine COVID-19 test detected the disease.The rest of the care home was tested and an outbreak was confirmed after several more residents and employees tested positive. The home had managed to not register a single case among its staff or residents throughout the whole pandemic. It comes after another home in Vinaros, also in Castellon, reported 21 coronavirus cases on Monday after all residents had been vaccinated on New Year’s Eve. On January 4, a general screening was carried out and all residents and workers tested negative. But after a resident presented symptoms, a new screening was carried out on January 9, revealing positive cases among 14 residents, five workers and two nuns. The first dose of the vaccine does not guarantee immunization, meaning you can still become infected and infect others until after you receive the second dose. While the first dose has suggested it can decrease the severity of symptoms in some cases, it is not guaranteed.”

Not sure whether this shows that testing is crap or that there’s something dangerous in the Pfizer vaccine.

Israel, Tel Aviv: homeless shelter threatens to make vaccination condition of staying in shelter

T’s translation:

“An association that operates a homeless shelter in Tel Aviv has
threatened those staying in the shelter that if they are not vaccinated
for Corona, they will be evicted from the place. The association: ‘We
are allowed to demand from every street dweller who wants to stay under
our roof to get vaccinated’

This week, a vaccination campaign was conducted for street dweller
staying in sheltered apartments in Tel Aviv on behalf of the Lasova
Association, which operates the apartments with the assistance of the
Ministry of Welfare and the municipality. The residents of the shelters
known as “little roofs”, claim that the association’s employees
threatened them that if they did not join the organized group that went
to the vaccination center and were vaccinated, they would be evicted
from the apartment and left without a place to live.

They shouted at me, ‘Get the vaccine and if not, go back on the
street,’” says one of the tenants. “When a friend of mine found out
about it and said everyone has to get vaccinated at six P.M., there was
an outrage at the home. People flew off the handle. Everyone was in a
storm of emotions. I don’t know anyone who agrees to this thing.”

Although this is a vaccine that has passed all the required regulatory
approvals, stipulating the residence in getting the vaccine is putting
pressure on people with no choice. In a conversation we had with one of
the tenants before the vaccination, he said that some of them left the
compound in an attempt to evade receiving the vaccine. “Some of them may
have an alternative, but there are certainly some who do not. This
apartment exists for people who cannot currently find a housing
solution,” he says. “A lot of them couldn’t find a place to live,
certainly not from one day to the next. They didn’t put a gun to our
head but they told us, ‘This apartment needs to be vaccinated. Anyone
who doesn’t get vaccinated can’t be here.’”

According to another tenant, the decision to abandon the shelter could
lead to a deterioration in their condition. “‘Some of the tenants are in
the process of rehabilitation,” he says. “Leaving the shelter back to
the street because of a refusal to be vaccinated can disrupt the
process, maybe even terminate it.”

“I was scared, so I got vaccinated”

Lasova operates 11 shelters known as “little roofs” for street dwellers
in cooperation and budget support from the Tel Aviv Municipality. The
“little roofs” are divided into different groups, including dwellers
with a background of alcohol and drug addiction, women, people with
disabilities, rehabilitated residents and street dwellers with no
background of addiction. In total, more than a hundred tenants live in
them.

The reasons why the residents of the home are not interested in
receiving the vaccine are varied. “They say they want to see how it goes
first,” says one of them. “Some say they are young and healthy and do
not need it.” Another tenant says he prefers other people to get the
vaccine before him. “I don’t see any point in it,” he explains. “I am a
young person, with no underlying illnesses.”

Tenants report that about a third of those staying at the home did not
receive the vaccine. “I do not know what this means for the continuation
of their stay in the association,” says one of the tenants. He said he
was vaccinated even though he did not want to, because he feared that
the threats would materialize and not allow him to stay in the
residence. “The principle of not getting vaccinated was not critical
enough for me,” he admits. “But the vaccine was unnecessary.”

“The vaccine is not only a matter for each individual, but also for the
health and well-being of those who live with him,” says Gilad Harish,
CEO and chairman of the Lasova association. “The dormitories are
relatively densely populated with dozens of street dwellers, whose
health and well-being must be ensured.

“These shelter are the only solution for the overnight stay of street
dwellers, and these street dwellers have no ability to choose. Now that
there is finally a safe and approved vaccine, we may demand from every
street dweller who wants to stay in the shelter to get vaccinated, and
prevent risk to the other residents.” In the same way, we do not accept
people with infectious diseases, violent people, and people who can not
live together peacefully and endanger the other tenants. At this stage,
we do not intend to keep vaccinating tenants away, but I do not rule it
out. The issue is under extensive scrutiny.”

The Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality responded: “Contrary to the claim, the
Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality and the association do not require the
residents of the shelters to be vaccinated and they may continue to stay
in the shelters even if they choose not to be vaccinated. However, the
municipality encourages its residents to get vaccinated, in accordance
with the guidelines of the Ministry of Health. It should be noted that
the Ministry of Welfare proposed to the welfare system to vaccinate
their patients. “Since the residents of the shelters are patients of the
welfare system, we were given the opportunity to vaccinate them if they
wanted to.””

Video in French (English subtitles available) from mainstream molecular geneticist at the University of Paris-Saclay and President of the CRIIGEN’s Scientific Council critical of current vaccination programme

11/1/21:

Significant critique of current vaccination programme by French doctor; potentially insufficiently tested vaccines could create a super-virus worse than Covid

The following is what I have gleaned from  this French text, with some additional interpretations and information :

This blog looks at the current process  in France, but much of it applies to the rest of the world also. It looks at the process just in its own terms, i.e. from a conventional perspective that’s not at all critical of this society nor at all skeptical about other past vaccination programmes. It doesn’t question dominant ideas about what we mean by health – and so obviously ignores the fact that an essential aspect of  health, including mental health,  is to try to resist and attack this fundamentally sick society. Which, in a sense, makes his criticism of the current rush to vaccination all the more scary .

He says that with  a vaccine in general, early complications are usually the least serious, whilst  more serious, entrenched, problems can come later. The reason it usually take several years to develop what is considered a safe and efficacious vaccine is that the process of experimentation has to be long to be as safe and secure as possible, and even then problems, often serious problems, occur. Safety and the rush to get out a vaccine do not go together. The current process is a game of poker, full of risks – it’s a gamble whether it works and saves lives or it causes grave losses. And the loser is not just one or two individuals but also potentially the entire global population, with the possible emergence of a recombinant virus through the vaccination, a subject which is virtually  never discussed.

Hundreds of millions of vaccination doses have been ordered on the basis of a press release from laboratories, and organized vaccination campaigns, without knowing anything about either the benefit or the risk.

There’s been no comparative studies of the various vaccines now being used in different countries to find out first which is the safest and which is the most effective.

In France, the state and the media claim is that it has been validated by a commission of medical authorities responsible for studying whether it could be put on the market or not. This is a total lie. The product was bought and the campaign organized, before this commission even met to discuss it. The decision was not a medical one but a political one, and this commission did not issue a medical opinion, but endorsed a political decision already made.

It’s worth knowing that these medical authorities had validated remdesivir before the WHO declared it relatively dangerous on 20th November. Last year the EU gave Gilead, the pharmaceutical company that manufactures remdesivir, a billion euros to combat Covid – at a cost of 2000 euros for a 5-day treatment for one person and had to stop ordering the stuff because it was not only ineffective but also had fairly  dangerous side effects. [An aside about Gilead: despite them declaring that remdesivir, a vaccin previously used for Ebola, was “safe” and “effective”, this company has financed something close to 80% of the trials for hydroxychloroquine that “proved” that  it was “unsafe”, some of these trials including azythromicine]. Gilead didn’t suffer financially at all because either in 2018 or in 2010 (I’ve lost the date) – the EU decided that responsibility for lack of efficacy, for all side effects, or contraindications that had not been warned against, fell on the various states, with only Poland objecting. That is, compensation is paid out not by the companies but the states which are meant to verify whether a particular drug or piece of medical equipment etc., is safe or not (but in fact, they don’t do extra trials themselves, but only look at the various papers showing the companies’ research and on that basis decide whether the research meets their requirements of “scientific protocol” or not). In the US this has been the case since the 1980s. So as a result no individual is ever prosecuted – at worst the company itself has to pay compensation for deaths or whatever. Apparently Pfizer, the currently most well known of the companies producing an anti-Covid vaccine, regularly pays out billions in class action claims (which , moreover, are not easy things to pursue and can take several years even when they are pursued). In France compensation for catalepsy (a medical condition characterized by a trance or seizure with a loss of sensation and consciousness accompanied by rigidity of the body), originating from the anti-swine flu vaccine, was apparently very poorly compensated.

Re. the 2009-2010 swine flu “pandemic”.  Despite a relentless propaganda programme in the media (main news item for several weeks) pushing people to get vaccinated because of the terror of swine flu, less than 10% of the population took up this manipulated ‘need’ for a vaccine. The Minister of Health at the time, Rosalyne Bachelot, whose personal interests in the pharmaceutical industry were well-known, ordered 94 million vaccines from Sanofi Pasteur, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis and Baxter International at a cost of around 900 million euros to the state. Most of the vaccines were never used. As a result of the vaccine, there were 21 deaths, 4 anaphylactic shocks, 9 Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura cases, 6 multiple sclerosis cases, and 9 Guillain–Barré syndromes. The illness itself killed 310 people in France, considerably less than deaths from ordinary flu.

Back to the anti- covid vaccine and Dr. Gérard Maudrux’s blog:

“There used to be 3 types of vaccines. Those with an inactivated virus, low immunogenicity and low risk; those with a live attenuated virus, a little more efficient and more risky, and those comprising not a whole and manipulated virus, but a fragment, usually a protein.

The 2 Chinese vaccines on the market belong to the first category, the inactivated virus…it is a proven technique, widely used and without risk. Little effect in the worst case scenario… efficiency: 79.5%.

Now with Covid there are 2 new types of vaccines: DNA and mRNA vaccines.

RNA:

Like DNA, RNA is assembled as a chain of nucleotides, but unlike DNA, RNA is found in nature as a single strand folded onto itself, rather than a paired double strand. Cellular organisms use messenger RNA (mRNA) to convey genetic information (using the nitrogenous bases of guanine, uracil, adenine, and cytosine, denoted by the letters G, U, A, and C) that directs synthesis of specific proteins. Many viruses encode their genetic information using an RNA genome….

...These are experimental vaccines, because they are techniques never used in humans…so we know absolutely nothing about the possible long-term effects, which worries many people because they are treatments that affect the genes…so can there be a modification of our genes? This question is all the more relevant as these treatments have been developed thanks to research into gene therapy, precisely designed to modify diseased genes.

DNA vaccines …inject genetically modified viruses which don’t produce diseases but are responsible for “flu-like syndromes” into which the DNA sequences of SARS-Cov-2 are introduced. Messenger RNA vaccines directly inject a messenger RNA which will then be manufactured by our cells, against which we will then develop antibodies. …

…Can RNA fit into and modify our genes? Just to remind you, the DNA that makes up our genes is a double helix of nucleotides, RNA is a single helix of the same nucleotides (with different bonds). In theory no, the conversion is always DNA to RNA, the reverse is not normally possible with us. On the other hand, this …passage of RNA into DNA exists in nature and can integrate it into genes. This is the case with the HIV virus,. So the risk of integrating DNA vaccines is not zero. It exists in nature (and in humans), creating what are called chimeras. It was observed in a vaccine trial in children in 2002, resulting in 2 leukemias in 10 patients.

But the greatest risk seems elsewhere. You will find it very well described by Professor Velot, molecular geneticist at Paris-Saclay University and specialist in genetic engineering . Viruses often mix their genetic material together. If a viral RNA is injected into a healthy (or sick) carrier of a virus, another virus may be created by recombination (mixture of material). This recombination can give birth to something unharmful , but also to something dangerous, nastier than the SARS-Cov-2. This probability is very low statistically, but by no means zero. If it can happen in 1 in 10 million people, and you vaccinate 10,000 people, this risk is low, but if you vaccinate 500 million, 1 billion people, then the risk becomes real, and we can move from an individual risk, which happens for any vaccine, to a risk which would concern the entire planet which can then be contaminated by an incurable virus. And all this just to be ahead in the competition for the greatest boost to the pharmaceutical companies’ share values….

The French minister of health said on 7th January: We have not yet determined, in any country in the world, whether the vaccine protects against the risk of contamination”. By “the risk of contamination” he means the risk of infecting others.

I don’t know if you have noticed this paradox. One would have thought that our contemporaries were afraid of everything, that they were ready to accept  anything for their survival, that they did not want to take any risk and did not hesitate to shut themselves up and hide their children for that reason. Except that we were wrong: the same people who are terrified   of children and who wear a mask in the open air, when there is the least risk, are ready to be massively vaccinated, even  though the potential risks are much higher. Doublethink: the principle of precaution is alternately made sacred, asserted above all and yet contested, trampled on where one would have some justification. We bathe in illogicality and terror.

The only explanation for me is the reign of spectacular thought. If Covid is scary and yet a potentially  catastrophic therapy isn’t, it’s that the second has not been pointed out by the media and that the spectators, who do what they are told , are  therefore not afraid or, in any case, less than of Covid. The media,  power, by focusing attention on it, have succeeded in creating an absolute Evil, to which everything else appears to be secondary:  other diseases, freedoms, happiness, friendship, love, life … A lifeless life that looks like death.

The worst part of all this sinister farce is that  “revolutionaries” have also come to take their instructions from  power and the media and do what they are told. ” [translated from French]

Israel sets itself up as the world’s guinea pig for the vaccine

Excerpts:

The rapid rollout combined with the country’s vast medical database 
is
a gold mine that will serve doctors and scientists in the years to come

When it comes to the rate of COVID-19 vaccinations, Israel is leaving
the rest of the world in the dust, and that’s setting the country up to
become a giant laboratory for studying the vaccine’s effectiveness and
side effects.
[…]
“Israel has been producing and will continue to produce very unique
assets in the future,” said Jonathan Adiri, the CEO of Healthy.io and a
leading Israeli biomed entrepreneur. “The first is an operative asset –
we proved that we were able to inoculate a large number of people in a
short amount of time in the eye of a storm. We have a recipe for
efficient vaccination of the population and have learned a lot – that’s
data with tremendous value.”

Uri Shalit, an artificial-intelligence researcher at the Technion
technology institute, said that the information being gathered in Israel
will show how well the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine works when factors like
refrigeration and the way the vaccine is injected are less ideal than in
the controlled trials. Israel will also serve as a lab for researchers
to discover whether the vaccine just prevents disease or also prevents
contagion.

“I’m confident that the first articles coming out of Israel on the
vaccine’s effect will have tremendous value and that the entire world is
awaiting them,” Shalit said.

Another data asset is Israel’s diverse population containing a wide
range of religions and ethnicities.”

More here: “In effect, Israel will act as a large world testing laboratory, with the results from this huge research serving to set vaccination strategies in the rest of the world and also assisting the pharmaceutical companies in continuing R&D for coronavirus vaccinations and other treatments.”

On January 8th 2020, a man in a care home who’d previously been tested negative, died 11 days after receiving the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. “The retired Spaniard had received his first dose of the vaccine on December 29, along with the rest of the privately-run home…The rest of the care home was tested and an outbreak was confirmed after several more residents and employees tested positive. The home had managed to not register a single case among its staff or residents throughout the whole pandemic. It comes after another home in Vinaros, also in Castellon, reported 21 coronavirus cases on Monday after all residents had been vaccinated on New Year’s Eve. On January 4, a general screening was carried out and all residents and workers tested negative. But after a resident presented symptoms, a new screening was carried out on January 9, revealing positive cases among 14 residents, five workers and two nuns. The first dose of the vaccine does not guarantee immunization, meaning you can still become infected and infect others until after you receive the second dose.” Meanwhile in Benidorm, “more than 65 residents and ten staff have tested positive for coronavirus at the Foietes nursing home …just days after receiving the first Covid-19 vaccine. According to official sources, the residence previously hadn’t registered any cases for months, and most residents and staff had negative PCR tests shortly before the vaccine drive began on January 4…residents are now confined to their rooms, and while many are asymptomatic, around half a dozen have been admitted to the Regional Hospital. Sadly, four elderly people have also lost their lives.”

Coward19:

As for the vaccine, SARS-Cov2 is not a moving target like the flu, because it is able to repair its DNA. That’s why antivirals unfortunately have almost no effect on it (a few elements in French – http://www.université-populaire-de-marseille.net/covid-19_2020/ ). The real problem, the Pandora’s box that has been opened no matter what happens, is that people are being used extensively as guinea pigs to fight a disease that remains, as far as we know, mostly benign. It is laughable to hear the French authorities congratulate themselves that nothing serious has happened since the start of the vaccination campaign: should we be reassured that they feel happy not to have killed anyone in FIVE days, really? ? In comparison, the newly tested (old) Lyme disease vaccine is not expected to be available until… 2025. From a scientific point of view, they CANNOT know what they are doing with this virus that emerged one year ago, and it’s just bullshit to argue otherwise.

***

As for the vaccin, there are also reports of many Israelis who live abroad coming to Israel especially to get vaccinated, as well as a report from today of 7 nurses contracting Covid19 in a vaccination center in Safed (a mostly orthodox city in the north), after masses of people were called to vaccinate quickly  before a shipment of vaccin doses would go bad and unusable – a current phenomenon these days, that gives the chance for people who are not on the priority list to get the vaccin….

The mixing of vaccins from different companies for the first and  second shot is now officially done in Belgium as well as Israel. The “experts” claim it’s the same technology and there’s no reason to worry etc. [See UK opts for unknown gamble of mix-and-match vaccines]

Israeli officials concerned by low vaccination rate among Arab-Israelis

“Public health expert Dr. Bishara Basharat, who directs a national
nonprofit which promotes Arab health, agreed that some in the Arab
community were reluctant to be vaccinated, a phenomenon he called
“concerning.” … Arab Israelis constitute a disproportionately large
number of Israel’s health care workers, especially nurses and
pharmacists: a 2017 study found that around 40% of nursing students were
Arab Israelis, even though they constitute around 21% of the population.

To combat mistrust of the vaccine, Basharat recommended an aggressive
awareness campaign among Arab family doctors.”

“Arab citizens trust their family doctors, the ones in their hometowns,
whom they go to consult with on a regular basis. Once they are
vaccinated, people will start to be convinced,” Basharat said.”

“In contrast, the ministry says the response to the vaccination campaign
in Haredi communities has been high, especially after leading rabbis
voiced support and were photographed getting the vaccine.”

T writes:

About a week ago I also saw a report on TV that said that only 4% of the Arab population want to be vaccinated.

Israel becomes a world leader in vaccinating against Covid-1984

“Israel’s heavily digitized, community-based health system — all citizens, by law, must register with one of the country’s four H.M.O.s — and its centralized government have proved adept at orchestrating a national inoculation campaign, according to Israeli health experts.

With a population of nine million, Israel’s relatively small size has played a role as well, said Professor Balicer, who is also the chief innovation officer for Clalit, the largest of the country’s four H.M.O.s.

An aggressive procurement effort helped set the stage.

The health minister, Yuli Edelstein, said in an interview on Friday that Israel had entered into negotiations with drugmakers as an “early bird,” and that the companies were interested in supplying Israel because of its H.M.O.s’ reputation for efficiency and gathering reliable data.

“We are leading the world race thanks to our early preparations,” he said.”

and also becomes the first country in the world to have “vaccination passports”

“Israel will be the first country to issue a “green passport” to residents who have received the COVID-19 vaccine. The passport will lift some restrictions, including mandatory quarantine following exposure to an infected person, and offer access to cultural events and restaurants, according to Israel’s Ministry of Health. A green passport will be issued by the ministry two weeks after the second of the required two vaccine shots is received by the individual. “This passport will show that a person is vaccinated and will give a number of advantages such as not needing to quarantine, entry to all kinds of culture events, restaurants, and so on,” the Ministry of Health’s Director-General Chezy Levy told Israel’s Channel 12.”

UK opts for unknown gamble of mix-and-match vaccines

“Britain has quietly updated its vaccination playbook to allow for a mix-and-match vaccine regimen. If a second dose of the vaccine a patient originally received isn’t available, or if the manufacturer of the first shot isn’t known, another vaccine may be substituted, health officials said. The new guidance contradicts guidelines in the United States, where the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has noted that the authorized Covid-19 vaccines “are not interchangeable,” and that “the safety and efficacy of a mixed-product series have not been evaluated. Both doses of the series should be completed with the same product.” Some scientists say Britain is gambling with its new guidance. “There are no data on this idea whatsoever,” said John Moore, a vaccine expert at Cornell University. Officials in Britain “seem to have abandoned science completely now and are just trying to guess their way out of a mess.””

More on this. “Every effort should be made to give them the same vaccine, but where this is not possible it is better to give a second dose of another vaccine than not at all.” they say, but without even a pretense of following that eternal ode to objecivity “scientific protocol”, who knows if it’s better or worse?

28/12/20:

More on vaccines

“I’m not an anti-vaxxer by any stretch, but if you want to know why so many people don’t trust the government and buy into all kinds of doubt, look at the following from the article:

We all want answers, but we need to know where to look and whom to trust. Take the new Covid vaccines, for example: scientists understand very well that randomised control trials involving tens of thousands of volunteers that are run to find out whether new vaccines are safe and effective are pretty much as good as it gets. They are the gold standard of evidence-based science.

The “gold standard” in testing is double-blind with genuine placebos. Yet these studies were run where the placebo was in most cases another vaccine (MMR). In fact, vaccines are almost never tested with real placebos. The argument is that it would be unethical not to give someone a vaccine, but nonetheless, the procedure is not the “gold standard” double-blind placebo testing.

Further, regarding “gold standard,” science recognizes that tests should be reproducible and should be reproduced by independent labs. The original trials by Pfizer were not reproduced by an entirely independent research organization at any point to verify effectiveness or side affects. We only have Pfizer supervised and submitted tests–the very entity whose stocks are soaring on this product. Sure, this may be an emergency and we’re skipping that, but don’t use the words “gold standard” because that’s wrong. We are skipping steps.

And that too matters, because a large number of results submitted by companies like Pfizer to the FDA to justify production of various products over the years are NOT REPRODUCIBLE. The studies are way off base when retested by someone else. This is a ongoing problem with pharmaceuticals: the companies submit tests for approval from the FDA that turn out to be flat-out wrong or worse, never get independently verified.

Yet, articles like this just throw out words like “science” and “gold standard” like confetti. It’s like the very word “vaccine” = good science, in any context, no matter what. That in itself is not scientific.

One can believe in well established vaccine science and also believe that there are problems with the pharmaceutical industry’s products, even when they are not in a fast-track situation and not poised to have a new market that transforms their stock price. And then it gets even worse where there are articles like this that essentially pretend that it is scientific to ignore the any pharma industry factor.”

Some interesting criticisms  of Pfizer on left section of UK’s Labour Party site by ex-soldier

Much of this article is about Pfizer’s bribes to various medical authorities and doctors around the world, and about its grotesque manipulation of prices, but the following seems most pertinent  in relation to whether or not to trust its vaccine:

“Pfizer’s biggest scandal involved defective heart valves sold by its Shiley subsidiary that led to the deaths of more than 100 people. During the investigation of the matter, information came to light suggesting that the company had deliberately misled regulators about the hazards. Pfizer also inherited safety and other legal controversies through its big acquisitions, including a class action suit over Warner-Lambert’s Rezulin diabetes medication, a big settlement over PCB dumping by Pharmacia, and thousands of lawsuits brought by users of Wyeth’s diet drugs. Also on Pfizer’s list of scandals are a 2012 bribery settlement; massive tax avoidance; and lawsuits alleging that during a meningitis epidemic in Nigeria in the 1990s the company tested a risky new drug on children without consent from their parents.”

On December 27th 2020, the first woman in France was vaccinated with a vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech. She was 78. This had been preceded by repeated speeches by France’s Prime Minister, Castex, who assured everyone that only those consenting and informed would be vaccinated. Surrounded by cameras, this woman said something like “Oh – I didn’t know I had to be vaccinated”. Probably suffering from something like Alzheimers, this woman  could hardly have given her informed consent to her vaccination.

But of course, this is just anti-vaxxer propaganda.  And therefore not worth mentioning in most of the media. Nor amongst most self-described “revolutionaries”.

After all, In Science We Trust. And In Progress We Trust.

On January 1st 2021,The New York Times reported that the UK has opted for an unknown gamble of mix-and-match vaccines.

“Britain has quietly updated its vaccination playbook to allow for a mix-and-match vaccine regimen. If a second dose of the vaccine a patient originally received isn’t available, or if the manufacturer of the first shot isn’t known, another vaccine may be substituted, health officials said. The new guidance contradicts guidelines in the United States, where the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has noted that the authorized Covid-19 vaccines “are not interchangeable,” and that “the safety and efficacy of a mixed-product series have not been evaluated. Both doses of the series should be completed with the same product.” Some scientists say Britain is gambling with its new guidance. “There are no data on this idea whatsoever,” said John Moore, a vaccine expert at Cornell University. Officials in Britain “seem to have abandoned science completely now and are just trying to guess their way out of a mess.”

These are just the latest in a line of  some of the more obvious reasons for being very skeptical about the latest episodes in this madness – this whole rush-to-vaccine PRopaganda, PRogramme and PRoject the world is being overwhelmingly PRessurised with – PR being the operative suffix.

Let’s look at some more of the star players in this vaccination project.

Take Pfizer. We know that they have already started to receive $2bn a month, though how much of that is profit is anybody’s guess. The head of Pfizer is already on the rich list. This much is a banality. More interesting about them are aspects of their history, such as  this“Pfizer’s biggest scandal involved defective heart valves sold by its Shiley subsidiary that led to the deaths of more than 100 people. During the investigation of the matter, information came to light suggesting that the company had deliberately misled regulators about the hazards. Pfizer also inherited safety and other legal controversies through its big acquisitions, including a class action suit over Warner-Lambert’s Rezulin diabetes medication, a big settlement over PCB dumping by Pharmacia, and thousands of lawsuits brought by users of Wyeth’s diet drugs. Also on Pfizer’s list of scandals are a 2012 bribery settlement; massive tax avoidance; and lawsuits alleging that during a meningitis epidemic in Nigeria in the 1990s the company tested a risky new drug on children without consent from their parents.”

Much of the rest of  this article is about Pfizer’s bribes to various medical authorities and doctors around the world, and about its grotesque manipulation of prices, and the fact that even when fined millions or hundreds of millions of dollars, this is just water off a duck’s back for a massively multi-billion dollar company, ranked 57 on the 2018 Fortune 500 list of the largest United States corporations by total revenue. Moreover, since 2018 changes in European laws governing responsibility for side effects or lack of efficacy of any drug is now shouldered by the various states, not the companies themselves (which was already the case for the USA long before this).

Or take the  Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine. On 23/11/20 the Oxford vaccine trials announced 90% efficacy. as they trust repression of past evidence and the spectators’ goldfish memory will allow them to rake in billions

Back in mid-September I wrote about this story that hit the headlines for 5 minutes before being buried under endless pictures of people not maintaining social distancing. It reported “The Oxford coronavirus vaccine trial is facing a “challenge”, the health secretary has admitted, after it was put on hold due to a suspected serious adverse reaction in one of its volunteers…The nature of the adverse reaction and when it happened are not currently known.” However, after 4 days the trials were resumed without any official indication of what had gone wrong. But the New York Times reported that the just mentioned volunteer in the UK trial had been diagnosed with transverse myelitis: “Symptoms include weakness and numbness of the limbs, deficits in sensation and motor skills, dysfunctional urethral and anal sphincter activities, and dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system that can lead to episodes of high blood pressure….sensation to pain or light touch is impaired. Motor weakness…mainly affects the muscles that flex the legs and extend the arms…Back pain can occur at the level of any inflamed segment of the spinal cord…all four limbs may be affected and there is risk of respiratory failureLesions of the lower cervical region (C5–T1) will cause a combination of upper and lower motor neuron signs in the upper limbs, and exclusively upper motor neuron signs in the lower limbs. Cervical lesions account for about 20% of cases…A lesion of the lumbar segment, the lower part of the spinal cord (L1S5) often produces a combination of upper and lower motor neuron signs in the lower limbs. Lumbar lesions account for about 10% of cases.”

And a bit later a second coronavirus vaccine volunteer suffered the very same rare neurological condition“A 37-year-old woman suffered a rare neurological condition that left her struggling to walk…”
Marvelous the way they say “the two cases were unlikely to be associated with the vaccine…” A rare disease amongst 2 people volunteering for the trial of the vaccine. Pure coincidence! Like the melting of the icecaps being just something that happens naturally every few thousand years – nothing to do with commodity-induced rich-man-made climate change, nothing to do with the car economy and capitalist industry in general.
This article also says that only one third make a full or near full recovery from this ‘transverse myelitis’ “with most of their symptoms gone” after 2 years. Nothing to worry about then.

 

This, from a Green EU politician, states that the European Union, on 10th July 2020, gave the go-ahead for the production of Genetically Modified vaccines without verifying, through experiments, any environmental or health safeguard!!! This means the whole world – or at least EU countries – have been explicitly transformed into involuntary guinea pigs. Not hard to recognise what might happen if GM vaccines are permitted without even standard trials which are not even a guarantee of much safety anyway (eg the hundred thousand or so people each year who die in the US from totally “safe” – ho ho – drugs, drugs that have passed these standard tests). And these scum complain Dr.Raoult’s specific mix of hydroxychloraquine and the antibiotic azithromycine has not been subjected to any “scientific” health experiments . Certainly further proof that this crisis is an opportunity for the maniacs who rule us to do things that they think they could not do before. Whilst anti-vaxxers can often be simplistic and dogmatic and selectively ignore some of the positive effects of vaccines (just as pro-vaxxers ignore the negative effects), there’s a fundamental basis for such fears. The problem of this Covid1984 epoch is that people fall into the most horrnedous manichean splits between pro-XYZ and anti-XYZ that represses all struggle for recognising what is true and what is false in such dogmatic positions, a divid e and rule that appears to be purely upo to individual choie when it shows above all how such choices are thoroughly colonised by the various manipulations of external authorities.

And now there’s this: Scientists are working on vaccines that spread like a disease. What could possibly go wrong?

“Self-spreading vaccines could indeed entail serious risks, and the prospect of using them raises challenging questions. Who decides, for instance, where and when a vaccine should be released? Once released, scientists will no longer be in control of the virus. It could mutate, as viruses naturally do. It may jump species. It will cross borders. There will be unexpected outcomes and unintended consequences. There always are. While it may turn out to be technically feasible to fight emerging infectious diseases like COVID-19, AIDS, Ebola, and Zika with self-spreading viruses, and while the benefits may be significant, how does one weigh those benefits against what may be even greater risks?”

 

Cons like snake oil at least had the advantage of not usually having an adverse effect on those seeking a quick cure; whilst some died the majority were just swallowing a largely harmless mix of innocuous substances. As forgenuine snake oil – it can have genuinely beneficial results: “Snake oil really is a cure for what ails you, if that happens to be arthritis, heart disease or maybe even depression”

“The end of social distancing and a return to some kind of “normality” can only happen through mass vaccination. If you don’t vaccinate yourself you’re not only endangering yourself but others as well and helping to perpetuate the misery that’s destroying the economy and social life in general…” goes the line.

Vaccination tracking device under skin already starting to be developed a year ago..?

This is an article, from a year ago, from LCI, a mainstream French TV news channel and online news site. And is probably the basis for the conspiracy theories being put out. Whether or not this is something they’re planning to do, and whether or not they could pass a law to make it legal and/or compulsory is another question, and it’s certainly not the only reason to be worried about vaccinations. But if there’s any truth to this article, it potentially makes Orwell’s “1984” seem like child’s play in comparison. I emphasise “if”, because journalists, mainstream or not, often copy and paste other people’s texts, changing a word or two to make it seem it’s like theirs’. And they often don’t verify much the content of what they plagiarise, so maybe this article should be taken with a pinch of salt. However, I reproduce here the salient points, which , for the moment, I too haven’t checked:

TOMORROW’S WORLD – Researchers have developed a technology which, thanks to an invisible tattoo embedded under the skin, makes it possible to display a person’s health record via the camera of a smartphone. Enough to provide doctors, especially in developing countries, with proof that the person has been vaccinated…Subcutaneous technological implants, used all over the world for livestock and pets, are starting to spread to humans, as in Sweden where several thousand people already use them as a key, train ticket or bank card. In the field of health, this time, a team of scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) announced that they had developed a revolutionary process: instead of implanting an electronic chip between the index finger and the thumb, nanoparticles are injected under the skin via a special syringe. These nanoparticles have the particularity of emitting a fluorescent light imperceptible to the naked eye, but visible from the screen of a smartphone. Concretely, the idea is to establish the proof of the vaccine in the body itself, especially in developing countries where paper vaccination cards are often incorrect or incomplete and where electronic medical records do not exist. So far, the technology has only been tested in rats, but researchers hope to test it on humans in Africa within the next two years….Scientists have spent a lot of time finding components that are safe for the body, stable and able to last for years. The final recipe is composed of copper-based nanocrystals, called “quantum dots”, measuring 3.7 nanometers in diameter. These nanocrystals are then encapsulated in microparticles of 16 micrometers (1 micrometer equals one millionth of a meter…)…. The implantation, which is done with a special syringe with a patch of microneedles 1.5 millimeters in length, is almost painless. Once applied to the skin for two minutes, the microneedles dissolve and leave small points under the skin, distributed for example in the shape of a circle or a cross. They appear under the effect of a part of the light spectrum invisible to us, close to infrared. Through the camera of a modified smartphone, pointed at the skin, the circle or the cross appears fluorescent on the screen. This symbol fluoresces on the screen when you point the smartphone camera…Researchers want the measles vaccine to be injected at the same time as these small dots. Because of this, a doctor could check if the person has been vaccinated years later. The technique is believed to be more durable than permanent felt markers. In the report of their work, the scientists indicate that they simulated five years of exposure to the Sun during laboratory tests. Another advantage of this device is that it requires less technology than an iris scan or the maintenance of medical databases. …The limitation of the concept is that the technique will only be useful in identifying unvaccinated children if it becomes the exclusive tool used. Also, will people accept multiple markings under the skin for each vaccine? And what will happen to the dots when children’s bodies grow older? The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which funds this project, is currently conducting opinion polls in Kenya, Malawi and Bangladesh to determine whether people will be ready to embrace these microscopic quantum dots or prefer to stick to old vaccination cards.”

Note added 10/12/20:

The MIT research is confirmed by thismainstream media as well as this one and the development in Africa confirmed by Le Monde (all in French). And the information about Sweden is confirmed here and here (also in French and also mainstream). However, the chance of the state or private interests putting a tracking device or nanotechnological softeware into people’s bodies without their consent or knowledge would be a very dangerous game to play, given the chances of them being found out. And besides, the technological means of totalitarian social control do not necessitate such crudely underhand methods. Conspiracy theories at that level take a truth and develop it into an absurdity that makes the true situation also seem absurd. Like with individuals who persistently exaggerate and blow out of all proportion something true, one ends up thinking everything they say is bullshit, even if it’s not. “In a world which really is upside down, the true is a moment of the false.” said Debord in relation to dominant ideology, but it’s also true of much of supposed oppositional ideology also.

“This is the integrated spectacle, which has since tended to impose itself globally. Whereas Russia and Germany were largely responsible for the formation of the concentrated spectacle, and the United States for the diffuse form, the integrated spectacle has been pioneered by France and Italy. The emergence of this new form is attributable to a number of shared historical features, namely, the important role of the Stalinist party and unions in political and intellectual life, a weak democratic tradition, the long monopoly of power enjoyed by a single party of government, and the need to eliminate an unexpected upsurge in revolutionary activity. The integrated spectacle shows itself to be simultaneously concentrated and diffuse, and ever since the fruitful union of the two has learnt to employ both these qualities on a grander scale. Their former mode of application has changed considerably. As regards concentration, the controlling center has now become occult never to be occupied by a known leader, or clear ideology. And on the diffuse side, the spectacle has never before put its mark to such a degree on almost the full range of socially produced behavior and objects. For the final sense of the integrated spectacle is this — that it has integrated itself into reality to the same extent as it was describing it, and that it was reconstructing it as it was describing it. As a result, this reality no longer confronts the integrated spectacle as something alien. When the spectacle was concentrated, the greater part of surrounding society escaped it; when diffuse, a small part; today, no part. The spectacle has spread itself to the point where it now permeates all reality. It was easy to predict in theory what has been quickly and universally demonstrated by practical experience of economic reason’s relentless accomplishments: that the globalisation of the false was also the falsification of the globe. Beyond a legacy of old books and old buildings, still of some significance but destined to continual reduction and, moreover, increasingly highlighted and classified to suit the spectacle’s requirements, there remains nothing, in culture or in nature, which has not been transformed, and polluted, according to the means and interests of modern industry. Even genetics has become readily accessible to the dominant social forces.

Spectacular government, which now possesses all the means necessary to falsify the whole of production and perception, is the absolute master of memories just as it is the unfettered master of plans which will shape the most distant future. It reigns unchecked; it executes its summary judgments.” – Guy Debord, “Commentaries on Society of the Spectacle” (1988)

An intelligible “anti-vaxx” position (Long article from June 2019)

I am not an “anti-vaxxer”. This is *not* my pet issue. I am not against the promotion of vaccination as one element of a good overall public health policy. I am not against their sensible use, especially considering the variety of circumstances people find themselves in worldwide. I do not think that they “don’t work.” Do pesticides “work”? Sure — they do what they say they’re gonna do, more or less. Does that, in itself, justify using them?…I…noticed that recently, in short succession, all of the following prominent online entities publicly changed their policies on “anti-vaxx” content: Amazon, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest, GoFundMe. (As well as more recently the Huffington Post, and even MailChimp.) They claimed to be “cracking-down” on the spread of harmful misinformation — all within a few weeks of each other, as I recall. What they did was remove, downregulate, or demonetize content; “blacklist” search terms (i.e. block *any* results for such terms as “vaccine”); and even ban books (!). Online opinion on this — and even reporting — tended to be laudatory and untroubled, as far as I could tell, conveying a sense of “Finally…”, and downplaying accusations of censorship or bias…”

In 1976 in the USA there was a swine flu scare. There was a mass vaccination programme, encouraged by TV clips like this. Just one person died from the flu but it is possible that 3 people died from the vaccine. Certainly lots of people got Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS) from the vaccine. GBS “is a rapid-onset muscle weakness caused by the immune system damaging the peripheral nervous system. Typically both sides are involved and the initial symptoms are changes in sensation or pain often in the back along with muscle weakness, beginning in the feet and hands, often spreading to the arms and upper body. The symptoms may develop over hours to a few weeks. During the acute phase, the disorder can be life-threatening, with about 15 percent of people developing weakness of the breathing muscles and, therefore, requiring mechanical ventilation. Some are affected by changes in the function of the autonomic nervous system, which can lead to dangerous abnormalities in heart rate and blood pressure” (here)

Wikipedia writes about the 1976 swine flue scare: “The House Appropriations Committee reported out a special appropriations bill, including $135 million for the swine flu immunization program, which was approved on April 5. ..on July 1, 1976. T. Lawrence Jones, president of the American Insurance Association, informed the Office of Management and Budget that the insurance industry would not cover liability for the vaccine unless the government extended liability protection. … Assistant Secretary Theodore Cooper (HEW) informed the White House on June 2 that indemnity legislation would be needed to secure Merrell’s cooperation. In June, other vaccine manufacturers requested the same legislation. A little more than two weeks later, the Ford administration submitted a proposal to Congress that offered indemnity to vaccine manufacturers….J. Anthony Morris, a researcher in the Food and Drug Administration‘s Bureau of Biologics (BoB), was dismissed for insubordination and went public with findings that cast doubt on the safety of the vaccine. Three days later, several manufacturers announced that they had ceased production of the vaccine. …Merrill became the first company to submit samples to the FDA’s Bureau of Biologics for safety testing, which approved it on September 2. Merck made the first shipment of vaccines to state health departments by September 22. …In October, three people died of heart attacks after they had received the vaccine at the same Pittsburgh clinic, which sparked an investigation and the recall of that batch of vaccine. The investigation showed that the deaths were not related to the immunization….cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome affecting vaccinated patients were reported in several states, including Minnesota, Maryland, and Alabama. Three more cases of Guillain-Barré were reported in early December, and the investigation into cases of it spread to eleven states. …William Foege of the CDC estimated that the incidence of Guillain-Barré was four times higher in vaccinated people than in those not receiving the swine flu vaccine. …”

UK: Brutish Army to monitor anti-vaccine cyberspace impropaganda

“Leaked documents revealed soldiers are already monitoring cyberspace…The British Army’s Information Warfare Unit will tackle anti-virus propaganda…The defence cultural specialist unit was launched in Afghanistan in 2010 and is tied to the army’s 77th Brigade, which often works with psycological operations teams, reported The Sunday Times. A probe into vaccine disinformation from hostile states, including Russia, will be launched. The team will start recruiting professional and reserve soldiers to help in its mammoth task as the Government prepares the country for mass vaccinations as soon as next month. At least 155 anti-lockdown protesters were arrested in central London yesterday after hundreds of people gathered at Hyde Park before heading towards Oxford Street. “

Crazy ideas are being mixed with sane ones: Piers Corbyn, the ex-Trot who used to try to impose his authority on independently-organised squatters, going on about Satanism or conspiracy ideologists “claiming vaccines were a cover to plant trackable microchips into people “ which completely distracts from perfectly valid fears – see entry for 23/11/20 below. I guess that’s how the propaganda unit of the army, involved in cover-ups of war crimes in Afghanistan will play it – use the dumb semi-religious bullshit and the over-the-top conspiracy ideologies to parody opposition to the vaccine whilst ignoring, and possibly censoring information about, the obvious dangers. Or say the risk is necessary. Doubtless they’ll assert the “objectivity” of science despite the fact that the pharmaceutical industry kills up to 100,000 people in the USA every year and is the third cause of death there after cancer and heart disease. Sure, vaccines have been useful against tetanus and smallpox amongst other things. But even if you accept that they may in certain circumstances be vital, the rush to grab hold of those trillions of dollars means that everyone who takes up this vaccine is in fact being used as a guinea pig, starting with the old and, for capital, dispensable because they no longer help in the process of capital accumulation. According to a twitter post in the above article, “vaccine development is typically a long and complex process that can take up to 15 years “. Though more usually it takes 10 years. According to some accounts which I’ve yet verified , 4 healthy people to date have apparently had a serious adverse reaction to the UK vaccine and 1 person has died. The sample size was 24,000, including those who had a placebo. 5 out of the 24,000 equates to about 30,000 out of a population of 70 million. So people are right to be super-cautious.

In France, the state strategy seems to take on a more intelligent form of manipulation. The man appointed by the government in charge of all this admitted ignorance of the efficacy of curently available vaccines, and didn’t seem to know much about things such as how available the vaccine would be, nor which one they were choosing. This sets up the government with an appearance of transparency all the better to convince people when they later say “We’ve worked it all out after thorough research taking into account people’s anxieties” and then recommend what may well turn out, long-term, to be something as destructive of humans as pesticide is destructive of plants. For the moment in France, they’re going to target nursing homes for the first use of the vaccine. Is Dr.Mengele alive and well-financed by the democratic state? Are the spin doctors giving eugenics the appearance of helping the old to become healthy?

7 Responses to Better to be sorry than safe … vaccination and its discontents
  1. Information from a friend:
    A little précis and some links to reports and research about and from Israel here::
    https://www.bmj.com/content/372/bmj.n338

    A couple of quotes:
     “In the period before the protection took effect, over 7000 infections were recorded, with just under 700 cases of moderate to critical illness and 307 deaths. No time scale or age group for these figures was given.”

    “the country is not vaccinating certified recovered covid-19 patients, although the Ministry of Health website does not provide information on how someone is certified to have recovered.”

    I wonder what these gaps in information mean?

    Also – speaking more generally – there’s not much discussion about global case numbers falling very rapidly in many parts of the world this year (India being a good example), far outpacing vaccination.

  2. This – https://libcom.org/library/year-world-went-viral-gilles-dauve#new – despite some factual mistakes and other questionable aspects, has some interesting insights, in particular this:
    “Still, in spite of the undeniable contradictions and inconsistencies of officially approved science, dissent is treated as uncivic, and circulating “false information” is tantamount to “high treason” (French Health Minister, November 10, 2020). Now, who decides what is “science” and what is not ? As Humpty Dumpty told Alice, “When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean.”

    Let’s just point out an overlooked aspect of the dispute. What is called a “health crisis” is made up of categories used as mental boxes in which data have been computed, therefore rationalised. Figures look neutral, non-debatable. “It’s very hot” sounds like a feeling: “It’s 39° C” is taken as fact. “Figures speak for themselves…” : do they ? Quantification always presupposes definitions, i.e. qualification, choices. On what criteria ? Because social and environmental factors playing a major role in the spread of the disease are difficult to circumscribe, modelling minimises them: only the measurable is accepted as “scientific”.

    Contrary to what the words suggest, “evidence-based medicine” does not refer to treatments grounded on substantiated truth and medical experience: it means facts turned into figures.

    This reductive process is all too familiar in political campaigns – contestants never agree on unemployment or poverty figures – but it is less plain to see in medical matters, despite the fact that medicine uses metrics that depend on preconceived judgments. Declaring that respiratory diseases cause 2.6 million deaths worldwide per year implies a definition of “respiratory disease”. So what is meant by “Covid-19”? We are provided with daily perfectly accurate figures, down to the last comma: as of January 2, 2021, 14:10 GMT: 1,837,294 deaths, worldometer informs us. But how many die of Covid-19? And how many die with Covid-19, that is, of co-morbidity, Covid-19 adding its effect to other causes?

    As noted earlier, it is the profit motive and the monetising of every medical act that urge hospital managers to favour ratios over patients. Galileo’s wish is fulfilled: “Measure what is measurable, and make measurable what is not so” (my emphasis). In a world obsessed with turning facts into digits, benchmarking, and creating mathematical models supposed to give a true image representing reality, medicine “naturally” submits to prevailing norms….There existed no biostatisticians as such in Marx’s time, but there were already economists who made a rule of working with averages, and he commented: “But what do these averages prove ? Only that one abstracts more and more from mankind, that one dismisses more and more real life […] Averages are real offenses inflicted upon real, particular individuals.” (1844 Manuscripts)”

  3. How Fakebook tried to suppress “Fake news ” about the vaccination programme:
    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/feb/18/blocking-australian-news-shows-facebooks-pledge-to-fight-misinformation-is-farcical

    Fake news has existed in the mainstream press most notably since WWI when the newspapers systematically lied about German soldiers bayonetting babies and raping Belgian nuns. The move to ban anything other than the “correct line” that vaccinations are invariably good and anyone who critiques them is inciting Covid-related deaths and are therefore as bad as a German soldier bayoneting babies (like this from the lefty liberal pseudo-critic George Monbiot – https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/jan/27/covid-lies-cost-lives-right-clamp-down-misinformation) is yet one more move tightening the increasing totalitarianism and indicative of an increasing authoritarian mentality that doesn’t want to even allow contradictions to be pointed out , let alone discuss them and even less so to do something against them. And this pervades the so-called “libertarian” (of right or left) milieu as much as anywhere else.

  4. Chronology of post 16/2/21 entries:

    For technical reasons, the chronology of relevant material concerning vaccinations post 12/3/21 is now in a separate comments box below

    Official (possibly) UK government report on side effects of Pfizer vaccine lists 227 deaths amongst other horrors –
    https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/968413/COVID-19_mRNA_Pfizer-_BioNTech_Vaccine_Analysis_Print__2_.pdf?fbclid=IwAR0KmcN1rx9rCW9snE9ip2PhAp0BQPFLjoKSnqp5iy3MKRh-I326zynJ74c

    Not absolutely sure that this is a genuine report from 9/3/21 (61 pages long ) or a fake one, as it’s not easy to check. But it’s the first thing that comes up if you type: UK reports received between 9/12/20 and 28/02/21 for mRNA Pfizer/BioNTech into Google. It’s been there for 3 days; given that Google seems to be vigilant about anything they consider is fake news, I’d have to say that this is genuine. Even more so given that this claims to be a government report, preceded by a standard government https: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/ . If it was fake, given that it pretends to be an official government report, you’d have thought that Google would have pretty quickly taken it off. But I’m obviously not 100% sure.

    It claims to cover all UK reports received between 9/12/20 and 28/02/21. Here are the essential results:

    Blood disorders – 1 death, 2294 having various listed problems.

    Cardiac disorders: 26 deaths, 1153 having various listed problems.

    Denmark suspends use of AstraZeneca vaccines after blood clots and death https://www.thelocal.dk/20210311/denmark-suspends-use-of-astrazeneca-vaccine/…followed by Norway, Italy, Austria, Estonia, Latvia, Luxembourg and Lithuania
    https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/mar/11/denmark-pauses-astrazeneca-vaccines-to-investigate-blood-clot-reports

    “AstraZeneca, which developed the vaccine with the University of Oxford, said the safety of its shot had been extensively studied in human trials and that peer-reviewed data had confirmed the vaccine was generally well tolerated. Its vaccines were subject to strict and rigorous quality controls and there had been “no confirmed serious adverse events associated with the vaccine”, it said. The British government defended the vaccine and said it would continue its rollout. “We’ve been clear that it’s both safe and effective … and when people are asked to come forward and take it, they should do so in confidence,” Boris Johnson’s official spokesperson told reporters.”

    Lies as usual. Back in mid-September I wrote about this story (https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-oxford-vaccine-trial-put-on-hold-as-volunteer-suffers-suspected-serious-adverse-reaction-12066991 ) that hit the headlines for 5 minutes before being buried under endless pictures of people not maintaining social distancing. It reported “The Oxford coronavirus vaccine trial is facing a “challenge”, the health secretary has admitted, after it was put on hold due to a suspected serious adverse reaction in one of its volunteers…The nature of the adverse reaction and when it happened are not currently known.” However, after 4 days the trials were resumed ( https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-54132066 ) without any official indication of what had gone wrong. But the New York Times reported ( https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/08/health/coronavirus-astrazeneca-vaccine-safety.html ) that the just mentioned volunteer in the UK trial had been diagnosed with transverse myelitis ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transverse_myelitis ): “Symptoms include weakness and numbness of the limbs, deficits in sensation and motor skills, dysfunctional urethral and anal sphincter activities, and dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system that can lead to episodes of high blood pressure….sensation to pain or light touch is impaired. Motor weakness…mainly affects the muscles that flex the legs and extend the arms…Back pain can occur at the level of any inflamed segment of the spinal cord…all four limbs may be affected and there is risk of respiratory failure…Lesions of the lower cervical region (C5–T1) will cause a combination of upper and lower motor neuron signs in the upper limbs, and exclusively upper motor neuron signs in the lower limbs. Cervical lesions account for about 20% of cases…A lesion of the lumbar segment, the lower part of the spinal cord (L1–S5) often produces a combination of upper and lower motor neuron signs in the lower limbs. Lumbar lesions account for about 10% of cases.”

    And a bit later a second coronavirus vaccine volunteer suffered the very same rare neurological condition ( https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/09/21/second-coronavirus-vaccine-volunteer-suffers-rare-neurological-condition/ ) – “A 37-year-old woman suffered a rare neurological condition that left her struggling to walk…” Marvelous the way they say “the two cases were unlikely to be associated with the vaccine…” A rare disease amongst 2 people volunteering for the trial of the vaccine. Pure coincidence! This article also says that only one third make a full or near full recovery from this ‘transverse myelitis’ “with most of their symptoms gone” after 2 years. And now there’s a death from blood clots. But of course, anybody saying this has anything to do with the vaccine is clearly a conspiracy theorist anti-vaxxer.

    Norway doesn’t alter its policy towards Pfizer vaccine despite deaths (from end of January – https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/1/19/norway-says-policy-on-pfizer-biontech-vaccine-use-unchanged ) More here (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-01-26/norway-may-refine-vaccine-strategy-after-elderly-deaths-pm-says – Norway May Refine Vaccine Strategy After Elderly Deaths, PM Says)

    “Having weathered the pandemic better than most, Norway suddenly made international headlines this month after revealing that more than 30 people — all over 70 and all already sick — died not long after being vaccinated against Covid-19. Solberg says the intense global interest in the news was “exaggerated” as she tries to ensure the development doesn’t put people off inoculation. “We don’t believe there’s any problem with the safety of the vaccines,” Solberg said in an interview with Bloomberg Live that aired on Tuesday. “But we will maybe not give them to the most vulnerable of the elderly, because that might speed up a process where they were what we would say at the end of life phase anyway,” so, “that probably is not what we will continue to do.”

    Apparent proof that you’re “Covid-free” is that you’ve had the vaccine, when there’s a great deal of evidence that the vaccine, even if it protects you against severe symptoms, doesn’t by any means automatically make you incapable of infecting others. Yet another lie that, constantly repeated, becomes a “truth”.

    French video of March 6th conference of dissident doctors
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hCo3vY9bNo

    Amongst some of the things said, it reveals that the W.H.O. has not published any deaths from the vaccine (this seems peculiar since, for instance, deaths from vaccines against swine fever back in 2009-10 were published). It has however published the fact that 177,763 people have had seriously bad side effects from the various vaccines over the previous 2 months, and it compares it with the serious side effects from Ivermictin over 40 years – just 4,603 recorded cases of serious side effects in 480 months. The French state has banned doctors from prescribing Ivermictin. It also points out that on March 1st, Israel, following its massive vaccination campaign, has about the same proportion of fatalities from Covid as Sweden, which was never confined and has had far less of a take-up of the vaccine so far than Israel. And the same goes for South Africa.

    This organisation consists of (officially, at least) 30,000 doctors, 30,000 careworkers and 100,000 “citizens”. One should, however, maybe take with a pinch of salt some of the information they’ve gleaned from an Israeli site.(http://www.nakim.org/israel-forums/viewtopic.php?t=270873 ). There will be some who’ll take this as meaning that both the conference of doctors and the Israeli site are cavalier with the truth. That should not be an automatic reaction:  the site they reference, whilst having some dubious takes on things, will also have some things that are valid, and some of these should be confirmed (or not) by further research, rather than ignored.

    Israel: new rules for what is called the “return to normal”
    https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-reopens-all-the-new-rules-from-march-7/

    “The Green Pass will be valid for participants in the trial of the vaccine being developed by Israel’s Institute for Biological Research….Higher education institutions can open, as can vocational training institutes and post-high school Torah studies, for Green Pass holders only (on the condition that such institutions will enable distanced learning for students without Green Passes) under the following conditions: Up to 300 people [in a single space] at no more than 75% capacity; at least four meters separation between the teacher/lecturer and the students; clear signage declaring the facility is operating under the Green Pass. The fine for allowing the entry of a non-Green Pass carrier is NIS 5,000 ($1,500)…Indoor seating for Green Pass holders only, with a limitation of up to 75% capacity and up to 100 people. Outdoor seating does not require a Green Pass, with a limitation of up to 100 people.”

    Since part of the participants in the trial naturally received a placebo, it means that the whole “green pass” thing is meaningless even in its own terms. The absence of logic in the whole Covideological onslaught mounts up by the hour. “Ideological expressions have never been pure fictions; they represent a distorted consciousness of realities, and as such they have been real factors that have in turn produced real distorting effects….The despotism of a fragment imposing itself as pseudo-knowledge of a frozen totality, as a totalitarian worldview — has reached its culmination in the immobilized spectacle of nonhistory…presenting illusory escapes from a universal autism.” (here)

    UK: Ve haf vays of making you healthy

    “Ministers are reportedly considering making vaccination mandatory for health and care staff because of evidence that a minority of them, particularly among those from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, are choosing not to have a jab…Last week Care UK said it only wanted to hire new staff who had had the vaccine, while another care provider, Barchester, said it wanted all of its staff, including current workers, to have had the jab by 23 April, adding that if they did not they would not be considered for shifts…Yvonne Coghill, a British NHS manager who currently serves on the NHS Equality and Diversity Council…who sits on the advisory board of the Health Foundation’s Covid-19 impact inquiry, which explores the pandemic’s implications for health inequalities in the UK, said she could not envisage a scenario where NHS staff would quit in disproportionate numbers due to being forced to take the vaccine. “Most people are pragmatic and will weigh up the pros and cons of any decision to leave the service in terms of how it would ultimately impact them and their families. People have mortgages to pay and mouths to feed,” she said. “I believe healthcare workers are very sensible people. Of course a few people might have strong views about the vaccine being made mandatory and leave, but do I envisage a mass walkout because of it? Definitely not,” she added.”

    October study states vaccines “may sensitise vaccine recipients to more severe disease than if they were not vaccinated”

    “COVID‐19 vaccines designed to elicit neutralising antibodies may sensitise vaccine recipients to more severe disease than if they were not vaccinated. Vaccines for SARS, MERS and RSV have never been approved, and the data generated in the development and testing of these vaccines suggest a serious mechanistic concern: that vaccines designed empirically using the traditional approach (consisting of the unmodified or minimally modified coronavirus viral spike to elicit neutralising antibodies), be they composed of protein, viral vector, DNA or RNA and irrespective of delivery method, may worsen COVID‐19 disease via antibody‐dependent enhancement (ADE). This risk is sufficiently obscured in clinical trial protocols and consent forms for ongoing COVID‐19 vaccine trials that adequate patient comprehension of this risk is unlikely to occur, obviating truly informed consent by subjects in these trials.”
    Interview in French with genetician/geneticist

    She says, amongst other things, that – according to Pfizer’s scientific protocol itself – the trials of their vaccine will finish in 2022, ie at least 18 months from the beginning of the trials, making explicit the fact that the whole world has been transformed into guinea pigs and making explicit the fact that to talk of “success” now has no meaning since we have at least 9 months to wait before the words “brilliant success” or “miserable failure” could be used. So the “95%” efficaciousness broadcast everywhere by the brainwashing media has no validity, especially as amongst those who have been vaccinated there have been some of who have had severe Covid symptoms, showing that it’s not intrinsically a protection against severe infection.

    Indonesia threatens 1 year in prison plus a $7,000 fine for those who don’t get vaccinated

    Google translate:

    “ While in most countries of the world the criterion for receiving corona vaccines is old age or background diseases, in Indonesia these days the picture is the opposite. The huge country, which has a population of 267 million people on a vast area of ​​thousands of islands, has decided that one of the first groups in line for vaccines will be … everyone over the age of 18 to 59. The rationale behind this approach is that this group is the “engine” of the corona plague – many asymptomatic patients, who have multiple social connections …36,000 residents have died so far in the epidemic in Indonesia, out of 1.3 million residents infected with Corona. As in Europe, in Indonesia the second wave recorded during December-January was much larger than that recorded at the beginning of the epidemic, but morbidity has been declining in recent weeks. Indonesia has acquired most of its vaccines from China, which was the first country to develop a vaccine for corona, although it has not yet been approved for use by medical authorities in the West. The vaccine was developed by SinoVac and is widely used in China itself. The vaccination campaign in Indonesia began on January 13, and since then aims to vaccinate about 1.3 million health care workers as well as a group of police officers, public servants, teachers, athletes, journalists and more (estimated at 17 million people). Everyone will get the vaccine for free, subsidized by the authorities. But one of the significant differences compared to other countries is that the vaccine is defined as “mandatory”, although it is not yet clear what sanctions will be imposed on those who do not get vaccinated. A government minister said the penalty to be fixed by law for those who do not get vaccinated is a year in prison and a $ 7,000 fine, but the government still needs to offer the vaccine in adequate quantities to make sure residents get the chance to get vaccinated. Amnesty International has criticized the government’s statements, saying the vaccination was “contrary to human rights”. … it is possible that in the coming weeks young people and adults without background diseases are also expected to start receiving the vaccines. This group numbers about 150 million people, and the country hopes to end their vaccinations by the end of 2021. Vaccinate first those who are important to the economy … Critics said the government decided to do so in an attempt to preserve the economy by first vaccinating the most efficient, working-age workers.”

    France: the state is considering the renewal of lockdown in 20 departments on top of 6pm – 6am curfew (four hours longer than the curfew in Myanmar!)

    This includes the regions known as PACA (Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur). There were 4543 deaths from Covid there from 2020 up until February 2021 (there don’t seem to be precise figures since then). In the 13 weeks of the flu epidemic (caused internationally by predicting the wrong mutation and therefore getting the vaccine wrong) of the flu season of 2017-2018 there were 13,166 deaths in PACA. This flu epidemic was never called a “pandemic” despite the fact that it was something that spread globally. I’d guess the reason why is that calling it a pandemic would devalue the term “pandemic” in people’s minds since it would be associated with a banal illness they’ve known about since an early age (subliminally the term for some evokes the notion of “panic”, though it’s linguistic base has nothing to do with it). The definition of pandemic was changed in 2009, excluding the notion of “dangerous” or “severity”, reducing it simply to its spread (redefined as a new virus, regardless of its severity, that travelled over national borders, for which there were no vaccines), the W.H.O. putting in place favorable conditions to make it possible to declare the planet in a state of perpetual pandemic. At that time swine flu was defined as a pandemic. Swine flu killed 284,000 people worldwide, over 100,000 less than the minimum amount of people killed by flu each year. Yet flu has only been called a pandemic with the Asian flu (1957-58) and the Hong Kong flu (1968-69), officially because it’s a virus that has been known about for a very long time for which there are vaccines.

    The common cold can, in certain cases, lead to pneumonia: in 2017 pneumonia killed more than 808,000 children under the age of 5! I suspect this is as much news to you as it was to me when I just recently read about it. Of course, these kids were mostly from the “Third World”, so they are regarded as nothing unless they’re used as a photo opportunity for some super-rich princess or whoever. Likewise, globally 7 million people die prematurely each year from air pollution (about 10,000 of them in London, less than the 14,416 who have died from Covid there). Of course, Covid is more dangerous globally than the flu or the common cold (though less dangerous than air pollution). But I put all this here to give a sense of proportion to this so-called “health” crisis and to show that in certain parts of the world it has shown itself to be less dangerous than the flu. Many say that Covid symptoms are intrinsically more painful and more lingering that those of flu. But is this seriously the case? A bad bout of flu can lead to severe respiratory problems which, even amongst survivors, can go on for several months. Without having researched it much, which would require looking at innumerable anecdotes of accounts from flu sufferers, I suspect, though Covid has many varying symptoms, that dying of either is pretty much equally miserable in terms of a painful death.

    A few words about other flues:

    In 2005 in France the avian flu “pandemic” was the first item of the evening news for about 6 weeks. At the end of September 2005, David Nabarro, the newly appointed Senior United Nations System Coordinator for Avian and Human Influenza, warned that an outbreak of avian flu could kill between 5 million and 150 million people. Nobody in France died, and globally there were just 214 deaths of human beings over the 4 year period 2005-2008. This is vastly smaller than of deaths from ordinary flu annually which are estimated at, on average, between 389,000 and 850,000 people annually – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6815659/ – “a 2017 study indicated…290,000 – 650,000 influenza-associated deaths from respiratory causes alone, and a 2019 study estimated 99,000 – 200,000 deaths from lower respiratory tract infections directly caused by influenza”. Taking the lower figure of 5 million, this WHO prediction was at best 0.0043% of the actual figure. And the actual figure was at best 0.055% of the actual figures for flu. In fact, avian flu in France was used as a pretext for the development of agribusiness, shutting down small farms on the pretext that the chickens were running around freely and could contaminate not only each other but all birds and humans visiting the farms (for some basic critique of agribusiness see this).

    Note the imprecision of this “between 389,000 and 850,000” figure for the annual flu deaths as compared with the apparently very precise figures for Covid. Also worth noting is the fact that never have we had daily figures broadcast repeatedly in the media for flu-related deaths. And since mid-March 2020 no figures for flu-related deaths have been published in France (I don’t know about other countries).

    In France in 2009 swine flu became the pretext for an exercise in social control – with doctors forced by the state to vaccinate everybody fearing the disease who wanted to be vaccinated. Despite massive and continual state and media propaganda, less than 10% of the population took up this manipulated ‘need’ for a vaccine. The Minister of Health at the time, Rosalyne Bachelot, whose personal interests in the pharmaceutical industry were well-known, ordered 94 million vaccines (about 1½ vaccines per man woman, child & baby) from Sanofi Pasteur, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis and Baxter International at a cost of around 900 million euros to the state. Most of the vaccines were never used. As a result of the vaccine, there were 21 deaths, 4 anaphylactic shocks, 9 Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura cases, 6 multiple sclerosis cases, and 9 Guillain–Barré syndromes. The illness itself killed 613 people in France, considerably less than flu .

    Israel: medical license of vaccine opponent permanently revoked

    SF:

    This Israeli doctor publicly said he’d forge vaccine passports. Without doubt, this was very silly on his part: if his intention had been serious he would (and certainly should) have kept this quiet. If it was just to make a name for himself as a martyr to social control, he succeeded but not very convincingly. It would have been more convincing if he’d seriously started to fake these passports. Some have condemned him for being corrupt. It may have been potentially corrupt if he’d tried to make a business out of it, but even then hardly something to totally condemn without nuance. Helping people avoid such social control seems admirable. Especially since it may well become mandatory for playing sport or whatever.

    About the same issue, see also this report in English:

    “Vaccine HESITANCY and SKEPTICISM have become a growing concern in recent weeks as Israel’s world-leading inoculation campaign has slowed [my emphasis – T]. Dozens attended a protest in Tel Aviv last week against “coercion,” a label widely used by anti-vaxxers. The protest featured a number of people not wearing masks, as well as comparisons between Israel’s vaccination campaign and Nazi laws, with some wearing yellow Stars of David saying “not vaccinated” meant to resemble the ones that Nazis forced Jews to wear during the Holocaust.”

    Interesting story about smallpox in Moscow 1960
    https://dialectical-delinquents.com/covid1984-latest/2021-2/february-2021/moscow-small-pox/

    Apparently the epidemiologists etc. are now considered heroes because they rapidly introduced anti-epidemic measures on a huge scale, isolated thousands of people who were considered to have possibly been infected, closed Moscow, and even returned trains with potential carriers of infection to Moscow. Then they quickly organized the importation of 10 million doses of the vaccine from other cities, mobilized all the resources of the country for the immediate vaccination of Muscovites. The Communist Party obeyed – for the first time in history — by doing what the epidemiologists said. They saved a huge city, only three people died. The vaccine was one that had been tried and tested for 150 years or so – not like the mRNA ones of today. And the method was targeted restrictions, not one-size-fits-all blanket lockdowns – only those who could have had contact with people who might have developed smallpox. And the quarantine followed typical methods of quarantining people that had been used for centuries – ie block a whole city but let those in the city carry on as normal (not that “as normal” in 1960 USSR was something to be recommended obviously), except those who may have got the smallpox. Now track and trace in China is obviously being used for ulterior motives and lockdowns generally are not at all targeted. But almost every class society has elements of “reason” in the way they deal with crises or potential crises even if these reasonable elements are fairly marginal (Khrushchev’s state obviously didn’t care about how many people died in the gulags), methods that a free society would probably develop fairly spontaneously and voluntarily insofar as no-one would be so narrowly egotistical as to want to either possibly die an unnecessary death or spread this possibility to other people. A critique of track and trace applies to this society but I imagine that if there were those who refused to abide by certain necessary restrictions in a free society (assuming we ever get there) that they’d be forced to abide by what the majority in that particular area demanded of them, just as in your house you and who you’re living with wouldn’t allow anybody – either amongst you or from outside – to endanger those living in it

    Covid-19: Israel sees new infections plummet following vaccinations

    A couple of quotes:
    “In the period before the protection took effect, over 7000 infections were recorded, with just under 700 cases of moderate to critical illness and 307 deaths. No time scale or age group for these figures was given.”

    “the country is not vaccinating certified recovered covid-19 patients, although the Ministry of Health website does not provide information on how someone is certified to have recovered.”

    I wonder what these gaps in information mean?

    Also – speaking more generally – as a friend said, there’s not much discussion about global case numbers falling very rapidly in many parts of the world this year (India being a good example), far outpacing vaccination.

    Re. India – according to a French Deputy (Wonner), in India people are given immune-boosting kits that include zinc and Vitamin D, which may well be the reason for the decline in Covid infections.

    Covid vaccine side effects in Israel match trials

    “So far, 3.1 million people in Israel have received the first dose of the vaccine, and 1.87 million have received both doses. The side effects that have appeared are more or less as expected from the clinical trials by Pfizer, maker of the vaccine that most Israelis who have been vaccinated have received. The side effects have mostly been light and transient, but there have also been some more severe cases. 6,575 people reported some kind of side effect, including local effects at the site of the vaccination, after receiving the first dose of vaccine. 3,592 people have reported side effects following the second dose. Side effects were more common among young people than old people, and slightly more common among women than among men. One possible effect that caused concern in relation to the vaccine was an allergic reaction. 1.4 people in a million [SF: 1.4 x 3.1= 4.34. 0.34 of a person…?] suffered anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction, but not at the level of life-threatening anaphylactic shock. Another 2.9 in a million [SF: i.e. 9 ] experienced respiratory difficulties. All were treated with no long-term injury. None of these effects was reported after the second vaccine dose. Other reported allergic reactions are recognized as light reactions, such as swelling in the respiratory tracts, runny nose, redness, an accelerated pulse rate, tingling sensations, and so on. A further concern was over possible neurological effects. A total of 180 people out of all those vaccinated felt paresthesia (pins and needles) in various parts of the body after the first dose, and 69 after the second. 30 people suffered from partial or total facial nerve paralysis, but most of them have recovered. One person suffered facial nerve paralysis only after the second dose. It should be noted that facial nerve paralysis occurs among the population even without vaccination, and with similar frequency (15-30 cases per 100,000), but the phenomenon is being monitored because in both Pfizer and Moderna’s trials there were more instances in the trial group than in the control group. In addition, eleven people reported attacks of herpes (and another four after the second dose), eleven reported a metallic taste in the mouth (and another eight after the second dose), eleven reported convulsions (these people were not given the second dose), four reported a transient ischemic event (probably not caused by the vaccine, but there is no way of knowing), and two people reported having lost consciousness. Fewer side effects of all kinds were reported after the second dose. One reason could be that people who experienced the same reaction for a second time did not report it again. The main transient systemic effects were headaches, reported by 328.8 people in a million (it is likely that many more people experienced headaches but not with a severity that made them report them as a side effect), 93.2 in a million felt dizziness, 60 in a million suffered muscular aches, and 59 in a million reported a fever. Other less common effects were pains in the joints, nausea, stomachaches, tremors, sore throat, runny nose, and coughing. As mentioned, these are symptoms that appeared close in time to the vaccination, not necessarily because of the vaccination. As far as local effects are concerned, 883 people in a million reported pain at the site of the vaccination (many more people probably experienced pain but not at a level that would justify reporting it). 129.3 in a million reported swelling, and 124.6 in a million reported restricted movement in the days following vaccination. 22.8 in a million reported a change in skin color at the vaccination site, 11.5 in a million reported swollen lymph nodes. Other effects with a lower incidence were subcutaneous nodules, subcutaneous inflammation, rash, itch, and abscesses. Some of these effects were the result of the needle not being inserted properly, and were not from the vaccine itself. At any rate, they disappeared within a few days. After examining the data, the Ministry of Health has not seen fit to change its recommendations on which groups to vaccinate; the recommendation to become vaccinated applies to the vast majority of the population.”

    It must be noted that this was after a relatively short period of time; longer term effects have yet to be reported. And though this was published the day after the following incident, it doesn’t mention it, presumably because there was no proof of a link between the vaccine and the illness (how many other incidents have been left out because of this lack of proof? and what would proof look like? are they, in most cases, even capable of proving direct links?):

    Today (Monday) a 19-year-old boy was reported to have contracted myocarditis just five days after receiving the second dose of the vaccine for corona

    The doctors who treated him noted that without treatment, his condition could have worsened and led to heart failure. Referring to the case, Dr. Abdulhadi Peruji, a pre-emergency medical director who treated the young man, noted that it could not be determined with certainty that myocarditis developed as a secondary result of the vaccine, as coronary heart disease can also cause the disease. …This case may cause panic in the public, due to the fear that the corona vaccine may lead to myocarditis in other vaccinators as well. We checked with Prof. Yehuda Adler, a cardiology expert and dean of the School of Health Professions, the Academic Center for Law and Business in Ramat Gan and a corona consultant to municipalities, whether this might indeed be a possible response to the vaccine. “I do not know the details of the case in question, but as far as I understand it is a case of myocarditis, a few days after the second vaccination. First, it is not certain that the vaccine is the cause in this case. There may be that another viral infection or corona infection, are the ones that caused the inflammation – since five days is a short period of time for the vaccine to start working. However, it is not impossible that the inflammation was caused as a result of an immunological response to the vaccine itself”

    COVID-19 vaccine: 13 out of nearly 2 mil. Israelis suffer facial paralysis

    “Some 13 people have experienced mild facial paralysis as an adverse after taking the COVID-19 vaccine, the Health Ministry reported, and estimates are that the number of cases could be higher. Health officials have raised questions about whether or not to administer the second dose to these individuals, but the Health Ministry is recommending that the second dose be given. “For at least 28 hours I walked around with it [facial paralysis],” one person who had the adverse effect told Ynet. “I can’t say it was completely gone afterwards, but other than that I had no other pains, except a minor pain where the injection was, but there was nothing beyond that.”As for receiving the second dose, he admits he is undecided, but says that “it is important to note that this is something rare, and I don’t want people to avoid getting vaccinated – it’s important.””I recently came across, for example, someone vaccinated who was dealing with paralysis, and decided not to give her a second dose,” Prof. Galia Rahav, director of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Sheba Medical Center told Ynet. “It is true that it can be given according to the Health Ministry, but I did not feel comfortable with it.”She added that, “No one knows if this is connected to the vaccine or not. That’s why I would refrain from giving a second dose to someone who suffered from paralysis after the first dose.”The Health Ministry stated, however, that the second dose should of course be only provided if and when the paralysis passes”

    More about this

    “The Israel Medical Association today (Thursday) addressed an urgent letter to the Epidemiology Division of the Ministry of Health in which it demanded that the second dose of vaccine not be given to vaccinators who experienced the side effect of paralysis in their face [SF: ie contradicting the Health Ministry’s advice that the 2nd dose should be given once the paralysis has passed] . Dr. Zion Hagai, and the director of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Shamir-Assaf Medical Center, Dr. Miriam Weinberger, demanded to receive the cumulative data on the side effect, claiming that the mechanism of development of paralysis [medical term: Patsialis] is not yet known. Another similar matter “We will have to vaccinate the children as well, otherwise we will not reach herd immunity” More than 29 million people have been vaccinated against the coronavirus worldwide – a drop in the number of vaccinated alongside a sharp increase in the number of new infections. A letter sent to the director of the Department of Epidemiology at the Ministry of Health, Dr. Emilia Anis, reads: “We are trying to understand on what basis the recommendation to continue vaccinating with a second vaccine is also based on those who suffered from an allergic reaction or facial nerve paralysis. Concern has been expressed that since the mechanism of the development of paralysis is unknown, how can we be sure that it will not return or worsen? “. Earlier it was learned that 13 Israelis, as far as is known so far, who were vaccinated with the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine against the corona virus developed shortly afterwards the “Bell’s paralysis” – paralysis of the facial nerve also known as patialis. According to a report this morning (Thursday) by Adir Janko in Yedioth Ahronoth, doctors in the health system estimate that there have been more such cases in practice. It has also been reported that as a result, there are disagreements among doctors as to whether those vaccinated should receive the second dose of vaccine or temporarily avoid it. The position of the Ministry of Health is: “A vaccinator who suffers from paralysis can receive the second dose. In general, those who suffer from a new disease should delay receiving the vaccine until after recovery. The cause of the appearance of paralysis, in most cases, is unknown. Also in a study conducted by Pfizer prior to obtaining approval for the use of its vaccine, the phenomenon was documented among several vaccinated experimenters. The report quoted Dr. Miriam Weinberger, director of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Assaf Harofeh-Shamir: “We do not know what the mechanism of this paralysis is and whether it is related to the vaccine or not. Some experts are debating whether it is really right to give a second dose after Patsialis and on what basis the recommendation is based. Routine treatment for psoriasis is by steroids, but when steroids are given, it is not possible to give the second dose of vaccine on time and it should be delayed until the end of steroid treatment. In addition, we ask ourselves whether it is right to give a second dose if the patient has developed a complication of paralysis when we do not know what is the mechanism that caused it to appear. We are asking for more information and we will contact the Ministry of Health and Pfizer in this matter. ” Prof. Galia Rahav, director of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Sheba Medical Center, added: “I believe that the conditions for recommending a second dose to those who have suffered this type of reaction have not yet matured. “According to the Ministry of Health, it can be given, but I did not feel comfortable with it. No one knows whether the complication is related to the vaccine or not. It is not yet clear whether this is really a more common complication.” In addition, last night (Wednesday) it was reported in the Channel 12 news that four people aged 80-70 and over in Israel who were vaccinated, all with complex background diseases – died after receiving the vaccine. Yesterday, according to the same report, a 75-year-old woman from Lod who suffered from many and complex background illnesses was found lifeless in her home for about two hours that she was vaccinated with the second dose. The Ministry of Health is investigating the incident as well as its three predecessors and no connection has yet been found between the death and the administration of the vaccine. About two weeks ago, a 75-year-old from Beit She’an died of a heart attack at his home, two hours after receiving the first vaccine dose for Corona at the HMO. The Ministry of Health investigated this incident and reported that it was known that the vaccinator had a history of previous heart attacks and it is estimated that there was no connection to the vaccine he received. Another case is of an 88-year-old from Jerusalem who was vaccinated and died two hours later. Hadassah Mount Scopus reports that he suffered from complex and severe long-term background illnesses.”

    It should be pointed out that trials of Pfizer’s vaccine did not include the over 70s or pregnant women.

    A young man who was vaccinated against corona developed a rare inflammatory syndrome

    “The 23-year-old suffered from multiple systemic inflammatory syndrome in response to a corona vaccine. Khaled Abu Sabitan from the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem was vaccinated two and a half weeks ago and the next day he began to suffer from various symptoms. Within a short time, his condition deteriorated and he was taken to a clinic and then transferred
    to Hadassah Ein Kerem. Prof. Dror Mevorach, director of the internal medicine department and director of the corona department at the hospital: “Khaled arrived in a very difficult situation, in real life danger. We diagnosed him with a multi-systemic inflammatory syndrome, a rare syndrome known so far only after coronary heart disease, and now for the first time it has appeared after vaccination.” “This is an immediate harm to some of the body’s systems: heart failure, kidney failure and the hemodynamic market,” said Prof. Mevorach. “The guy came to us with low blood pressure and was in mortal danger. The signs were obvious and we suspected the syndrome, which we confirmed in various tests we performed immediately.”
    An interview with Abu Sabitan, a social worker at the Jerusalem municipality, revealed that less than 24 hours after the vaccination, he developed symptoms of fever, vomiting, swelling of the neck and general weakness. He was vaccinated as part of his role in a vaccination campaign for welfare workers in the city. Prof. Mevorach emphasized: “At this stage, after Khaled’s release from the hospital, we will continue to monitor his condition at Hadassah every week and ask him to wait upon receiving the second dose.”

    Everything they forgot to check and tell about the vaccine for corona
    https://publichealth.doctorsonly.co.il/2021/01/217315/

    [SF: I have not included the references provided in the footnotes]

    “Dr. Michal Haran, an expert in hematology and internal medicine, a senior lecturer at the Hebrew University School of Medicine, raises significant questions about the results of the Pfizer coronary research published by NEJM and points out the “holes” in the data on vaccine efficacy and safety…

    The global pandemic, in all its aspects, has created an urgent need in the countries of the world for an effective and safe vaccine. Pfizer was the first to reach the finish line and summarize the results of a 2-3 phase trial within a few months. These results were presented to the FDA and received emergency approval. The decision was that despite the short time (the study was designed to last two years), there is enough information to decide with a reasonable degree of certainty that the efficacy significantly outweighs the risk. The material submitted to the FDA as well as its discussions were open to the general public. The results were also published in the prestigious medical journal New England Journal of Medicine. This combination of facts – the FDA’s stamp along with publication in such a leading newspaper – has made health authorities around the world feel confident about the vaccine. It is important to remember that this is a new technology that has not been used today in routine vaccines. …”This is the first time to the best of my knowledge where it has been openly stated that the study was planned, carried out and published by the pharmaceutical company, with the lead author being an employee of the pharmaceutical company” Reading the article published in NEJM reveals significant issues that are difficult to ignore and that can not help but raise significant question marks about the study. First, although for many years there has been an unhealthy relationship between physicians who publish results of clinical trials in leading journals and pharmaceutical companies (2), this is the first time to the best of my knowledge that the study was openly planned, conducted and published by the pharmaceutical company. … One of the topics that has received wide publicity is the effectiveness of the vaccine, of 95%. However, it is important to ask what is behind this number. Everyone agrees that the most important thing in eradicating the plague is to prevent infection. Well, it’s surprising to find that this has not been tested at all. Most surprisingly no test was done on the amount of people who have an active respiratory virus, not even a PCR test was done for the presence of the virus, although the main problem in this epidemic is infection by people who have no symptoms (3) and this is the main reason for masks, closures and frequent Tests. Instead, a very narrow end point was chosen for people who also have symptoms that are suitable for Corona and their PCR test is positive. This, without taking into account the level of accuracy of the test which can also vary from laboratory to laboratory.

    The impressive figure for 95% efficiency is not an expression but a relative risk. Using the absolute risk index would reveal that this is an efficiency of 1% ” When you are not satisfied with the data in the article but go to examine the information in the report submitted to the FDA, it turns out that there was a large group of people with symptoms that fit Corona, when the difference between the groups was not very significant (about 1,800 in the placebo group compared to about 1,500 in the group This group was given the title suspected covid and even when two people who received the vaccine came to the hospital with chest X-ray findings, they were not reported to have coronary blues in a severe condition (since their PCR test was negative) nor as a grade side effect. 4 (as would be required in a person who has been hospitalized after receiving the vaccine). That is, the impressive 95% efficacy figure expresses nothing but relative risk, or in other words the ratio between the number of patients diagnosed (and we will mention again that these are people who had both symptoms and a positive PCR test) in the two groups. Using a more accurate absolute risk index would have revealed that it was an efficiency of 1% (see details in Peter Dushi’s article on BMJ’s blog). That is, the impressive 95% gives us no relevant information about the effect of the vaccine on the rate of infection (remember that this was the main goal of vaccine development in the first place, in order to achieve an effective herd vaccine in a short time) and presents very limited information on clinically significant indices such as Intensive Care – a simple calculation reveals that the vaccine should be given to 7,000 people to prevent one such event – or mortality.

    Well, it can be argued that antibody formation in the general population is also important. But even with regard to this important figure, there is a worrying and conspicuous shortcoming. Surprisingly there is information about the immunological profile of only a very small number of volunteers in the first phase (5) and it should be remembered that this is a selective group of relatively healthy and young people. This information is important not only for evaluating efficacy (i.e., developing antibodies at the level required to confer protection) but no less important for possible vaccine risks. “It is known that mRNA may reach liver cells, so we would expect to have a liver function test, as well as other laboratory parameters (blood count with differentiator, kidney function, electrolytes, inflammatory indices, etc.). Neither in the article nor in the material submitted to the FDA is given Find the results of such tests ” These important indices were examined only in a selective population. Or in other words, we have no information as to whether a nursing senior living in a nursing home will have an immunological profile that ensures efficacy and safety. We also do not have such information about people with background diseases that are known to have an effect on the immune system. Vaccine safety, missing data and forgotten side effects Regarding the safety of the vaccine, one of the most notable data is the results of laboratory tests. This is particularly surprising in light of the fact that already in the selective group in the first phase, mild disturbances in the blood count were found (5). In addition, it is known that mRNA may reach liver cells, so we would expect there to be a test of liver function as well as other laboratory parameters (blood count with differentiator, kidney function, electrolytes, inflammation indices and more). Neither in the article nor in the material submitted to the FDA can such test results be found. It is also unclear how the authors of the article decide based on a follow-up period of about two months that “the safety of the vaccine is the same as the safety of other vaccines.” This is a new technology, which in contrast to existing vaccines to date involves the transfection of muscle cells by a genetic material. This technology has been tested to date in a very small number of participants and has so far not reached Phase 3. One of the dangers known and reported in the literature in such a situation is the development of severe autoimmune diseases (7) that cannot be ruled out in such a short follow-up period. Surprisingly, there is no reference at all to this problem in the article. The authors of the article recognize another significant danger which is vaccine mediated disease enhancement which is of great concern due to the fact that to date there has been no success in the development of vaccines against corona (including in pets) due to this problem. This is a very serious phenomenon because paradoxically, the person who is immunized develops a much more serious disease (with a very high risk of mortality) when he is exposed to the virus.

    AIDS patients are more likely not to develop antibodies against the virus and are also at higher risk of developing autoimmune diseases or tumors of immune cells. Creating a misrepresentation of their inclusion in the study creates confidence about the effectiveness and safety of the vaccine ” This problem is particularly worrying when it comes to a population of young and healthy people whose risk of getting seriously ill if they become infected with corona is almost negligible. The authors of the article refer to this danger as a “theoretical” problem that they believe has been proven to be non-existent based on the study data, which included ten patients defined as having a serious illness, with only one reaching a respiratory condition and none dying from the disease. It is also unclear the difference between the number of AIDS patients reported in the article and the number of AIDS patients listed in the safety tables submitted to the U.S. Drug Administration (160 vs. 1). There is a great deal of significance to this issue because AIDS patients are at high risk in several respects. First, they have reverse transcriptase that can lead to the conversion of RNA into DNA and thus cause unwanted and unplanned genetic changes. It should be remembered that this is a synthetic RNA that has been engineered and it is difficult to predict what will happen if its base sequence undergoes incorporation into the DNA. In addition, these are patients who suffer from severe dysregulation of the immune system. That is, they are more likely not to develop antibodies against the virus and are also at higher risk for developing autoimmune diseases or tumors of immune cells. Creating a misrepresentation of their inclusion in the study creates confidence about the efficacy and safety of the vaccine. In conclusion, the way in which the data in the article was brought to the attention of the medical public creates a false sense of security regarding the efficacy and safety of the vaccine. This is extremely worrying because this article is not intended for experts in the field but for the general medical public, including those who are in senior positions in various health ministries around the world. In view of the importance of the matter, letters were also sent to the newspaper as well as to other parties to warn of this.”

    17/2/21:

    From here – https://www.kairospresse.be/article/deux-ex-vaccina/ – “According to data from Pfizer , 0.6% of vaccinated subjects presented “serious adverse events” and 0.1% “life-threatening events”. So far, official statistics say that 2.22% of those who have Covid die. On that basis you could say that Covid is roughly 22 times more lethal than the potential effect of the vaccine on the 109 million people (roughly 1.4% of the world’s population) who officially have had Covid. However, 2.22% of 1.4% = 0.0311%. That is, so far just over 0.03% of the world’s population has died from Covid. On that basis Pfizer’s vaccine could potentially kill a bit over 3 times more people than Covid has killed for the moment, but Pfizer would have to vaccinate the whole world, and Covid would have to stop infecting people totally, for the comparison to be valid.

      2nd report from The Israeli People’s Committee on the barriers to reporting side effects of the vaccines (in Hebrew)
      file:///tmp/mozilla_nick0/%D7%93%D7%95%D7%97%20%D7%AA%D7%95%D7%A4%D7%A2%D7%95%D7%AA%20%D7%9C%D7%95%D7%95%D7%90%D7%99%20%D7%90%D7%A4%D7%A8%D7%99%D7%9C%202021-1.pdf

      Translation of part of it:

      “From the many testimonies brought to our attention by doctors and
      medical staff, we will give here as examples selected quotations from a
      letter sent to the committee by a medical staff member in the internal
      medicine department of one of the largest hospitals in the country,
      which describes a collection of hospitalization cases in his department,
      which indicate consistent problematic conduct, suffering from
      carelessness and lack of professionalism, and which largely stems from the fact
      that the Ministry of Health has never issued clear guidelines on what
      should be reported and what should not. The descriptions include a
      variety of pathologies that led to hospitalization, and which appeared
      in close proximity to Pfizer vaccine, including ITP, neutropenia, chest
      pain, vasculitis, fever, speech disorder, high blood pressure, acute
      renal failure and bradycardia. In all cases, physicians refrained from
      linking the vaccine to the phenomenon that led to hospitalization, did
      not even mention the vaccine in the patient’s medical file, and did not
      report the case to any external party – a fact that impairs differential
      diagnoses and is an obstacle to establishing accurate information. For
      example, the letter said: “It was not reported to any external party and
      if the issue arose from the family, they were simply told that there was
      no connection between the things because bradycardia takes a long time
      to develop.” In the context of another case, the letter stated: “Even
      chest pain near the vaccine with an increase in troponin in a patient
      without a cardiac background was not treated as possible results of the
      vaccine and of course was not reported to the Ministry and was not
      discussed with the patient.” Another example: “I took the patient to the
      ward and asked him about the reason for his hospitalization. He did not
      address the vaccine at all and only after I asked did he mention that
      the speech disorder appeared a few hours after the vaccination. Then the
      doctor on duty came to question him, where the patient did not mention
      the vaccine. Even after I gently hinted to the doctor that it might be
      worthwhile to check if there was a connection to the vaccine he did not
      address my words.An intensive care consultation was called, the on-call
      doctor examined the patient and told the doctor on duty that she should
      consult the senior doctor about differential diagnoses. I gently hinted
      to her that it might also be worthwhile to check if there was a
      connection to the vaccine, but she rejected me with the words ‘OK, okay,
      there could be a thousand reasons for this’ …”. Another example:
      “Although the diagnosis of vasculitis is abnormal, as well as following
      it with chemotherapy, the doctors did not think that the diagnosis
      should be linked to the vaccine, despite the strange coincidence of the
      two patients without similar background diseases with the same
      diagnosis, bed by bed, both about 10 Days after the vaccine (the patient
      with myocarditis was released and then returned after a few days). I
      asked a senior doctor how he knows it is not related to the vaccine and
      he simply replied that ‘it is a disease that develops over a long period
      of time, so it may not come from the vaccine’ …”.
      According to him, what makes the situation even worse is the fact that
      doctors, who are based on the principle of evidence-based medicine,
      refrain from reporting a phenomenon that is not known in the medical
      literature, and in his words “even if he (the doctor) thinks
      independently, in the end in order to give a diagnosis in the patient’s
      case it must be backed up in the professional literature. If there is no
      literature that talks about it (or if the literature is not written in
      the textbook accepted by the internal medicine doctor) he simply will
      not write it. If it has not been investigated, then it does not exist.”
      This evidence indicates a diagnostic tendency, which outright rejects
      any connection between the side effect and the vaccine, and thus causes
      a significant under-reporting of vaccine-related side effects from
      hospitals and clinics.”

      https://www.ilgiornale.it/news/cronache/vaccino-gruppo-privato-su-fb-18mila-sanitari-no-vax-1937382.html

      “A private group on Facebook. There are more than 18 thousand members and they are no vax health workers… the number is rising by the minute. Half of the followers have joined in the last week.
      …The group and its followers are also organizing a demonstration in Rome for next April 21. In the group you can find doctors, nurses, health workers, psychologists from all over Italy, all united in the fight, not against Covid-19, but against the vaccine. Bound … by the desire to oppose the decree law that imposes on these categories the obligation to undergo the inoculation of the serum. … ” the group was born mainly to unite and undertake something all together, the legal ways as I see have already been undertaken by many of you so now it’s time to move in another direction. Enough talk, let’s take back our freedom by demonstrating peacefully in Rome on April 21 at 3 pm”….A few days ago another very disturbing post warned: “It’s not with lawyers that you win, but with our absence. Entire departments with a sudden shortage of staff, are worth more than 100 wasteful lawsuits!”. …As stated in paragraph 1 of Article 4 of Decree-Law No. 44 of April 1, “Vaccination is an essential requirement for the exercise of the profession and for the performance of work services rendered by those obliged.” …Those who demonstrate that making the vaccine subjects them to a health risk can refuse to do so. Without consequence to their job. The only thing needed is a simple medical certificate. …” This follows threats by the state not to pay them if they refuse the vaccination – https://www.politico.eu/article/italy-health-workers-coronavirus-vaccinations/

      France to use the Sorcerer’s Apprentice’s largely untried mix-dose vaccines after AstraZeneca increasingly avoided
      https://www.ft.com/content/db295bb9-d1fe-47f8-bc0f-eb40dfaf545f

      “France has become the second country after Germany to recommend that younger people who have had a first dose of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine be given a different jab for their follow-up shot. The mixed-dose approach has been recommended by health experts in both countries — despite there being little clinical trial data to support it …The World Health Organization reiterated its position on Friday that there was “no data on interchangeability of vaccine platforms”, noting further research was needed. The move comes as the European Medicines Agency said it is also probing a possible link between the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and four serious cases of unusual blood clots in the US, where it is currently being rolled out. It is not yet being distributed in the EU or UK…. … Élisabeth Bouvet, a vaccine expert and member of the HAS, said…“It is really a choice based on safety. …Given that the protection of the Covid-19 vaccines begins to diminish after three months, these people need an additional dose,” she added. “The idea is to give mRNA vaccine as a second dose for this population in a ‘prime-boost’ strategy.” Even in the absence of clinical data, Bouvet said that they believed the approach carried low risks of side effects and was likely to offer people additional protection given that the Covid-19 vaccines all aim at the same spike protein on the coronavirus. “We think that this approach will work,” she said. “There is no reason to expect any particular side effects with mixed dosing but it would be good to study the immune response it creates.” Peter English, a retired Public Health England consultant in communicable disease control, said it was “reasonable” to use other vaccines…”

      Note: “the protection of the Covid-19 vaccines begins to diminish after three months“. Also note how they say “they believed the approach carried low risks of side effects “. Isn’t “science” wonderful! Having originally based it’s criteria of “objectivity” on clinical trials, science has now become no better than “belief” regardless of evidence. Touching wood is about as scientific.

      Belgium: interview (in French) with pathologist who lodged legal complaint against the medical order and the directive sent to all doctors in Belgium in January 2021 that vaccination is an obligation and that doctors must promote the vaccination programme or risk facing severe sanctions

      Amongst other things, he points out that there have been virtually no autopsies for those who have died (as compared with those who died from AIDS-related illnesses in the past), so it’s impossible to say whether someone died either because of Covid or died of something else whilst having Covid. See also this [https://www.researchgate.net/publication/341392038_No_Autopsies_on_COVID-19_Deaths_A_Missed_Opportunity_and_the_Lockdown_of_Science] – “Despite the increasing number of published studies on COVID-19, in all the examined studies the lack of a well-defined pathophysiology of death among patients who died following COVID-19 infection is evident. Autopsy should be considered mandatory to define the exact cause of death, thus providing useful clinical and epidemiologic information as well as pathophysiological insights to further provide therapeutic tools.” However, the doctor’s claim that this comes from an order from the WHO is not true (see this: http://www.scientifique-en-chef.gouv.qc.ca/en/impacts-of-research-cat/covid-19-who-prohibits-autopsies-false-french-version-only/).

      State limits access to tests in order to increase vaccinations [https://www.timesofisrael.com/serology-tests-scaled-down-to-encourage-vaccination-report/] “Responding to an increase in demand for serology tests, which detect antibodies in the blood of people who have recovered from the disease or been vaccinated, the Health Ministry has decided to restrict access in an effort to encourage vaccination, Channel 12 reported Tuesday. Formerly, serology tests, which are administered by health providers or in hospitals, were available to anyone.…Since the policy was announced, there has been an increase in demand for the test, especially among young people in Arab and ultra-Orthodox communities, who are reluctant to get vaccinated, the report said. Health providers have struggled to meet increased demand for the tests, and the Health Ministry also wishes to limit tests in order to encourage vaccination.”

      The Director General of the Ministry of Health (Hezi Levi), responsible for the vaccination programme, and Israel’s “Corona Project Manager” (Nahman Ash) were almost certainly involved in a vaccination scandal in the 1990s involving illegal anthrax experiments on Israel’s young soldiers [https://www.972mag.com/why-did-the-israeli-army-conduct-anthrax-experiments-on-its-soldiers/]. Hezi Levi was the Chief Medical Officer for the IDF at the time and Nahman Ash was his second-in-command. “The trial’s organizers exploited the high motivation and innocence of the soldiers, most of whom were attending courses or were at the start of their military service, and whom they approached to participate in secret experiments. Crucial information was hidden from the soldiers during the recruitment process; they were forbidden from informing their unit doctor about their participation, and most of them didn’t even tell their parents. All this, along with the exploitation of troops that occurs within a hierarchy, completely undermined the informed consent given by the soldiers [http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/ethicist-asa-kasher-idf-can-conduct-medical-experiments-on-soldiers-under-certain-conditions-1.467928]. The process was so tainted by defects that it’s doubtful whether the soldiers’ signatures can even be considered as agreement.”

      Israel’s Ministry of Health has published totally incorrect information about the Pfizer vaccine, saying it is FDA APPROVED ( the FDA is the USA’s Food and Drug Agency). The People’s (sic*) Committee says it has filed a motion in the High Court regarding a request for the Ministry of Health for a corrective publication regarding the deception involved in FDA APPROVED, to open a criminal investigation against those responsible for the misleading publication and to take disciplinary action against those responsible. This is a very significant document.

      UK: official report on adverse side effects of vaccines – 704 fatalities

      https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-vaccine-adverse-reactions/coronavirus-vaccine-summary-of-yellow-card-reporting#annex-1-vaccine-analysis-print

      It seems to me that the massive publicity given to the couple of deaths from blood clots of the AstraZeneca vaccine is possibly a cover for something far worse.

      As usual they have their get-out clause – that the vaccine did not necessarily cause the reactions

      “When viewing the vaccine analysis print you should remember that:

      Reporters are asked to submit Yellow Card reports even if they only have a suspicion that the medicine may have caused the adverse reaction. The existence of an adverse reaction report in the print does not necessarily mean that the vaccine has caused the suspected reaction.
      It may be difficult to tell the difference between something that has occurred naturally and a suspected adverse reaction. Sometimes these events can be part of the condition being treated rather than being caused by the vaccine.
      Many factors have to be considered when assessing whether the vaccine has caused a reported adverse reaction. When monitoring the safety of vaccines and medicines, MHRA staff carry out careful analysis of these factors.

      For a medicine or vaccine to be considered safe, the expected benefits will be greater than the risk of having harmful reactions. It is important to note that most people take medicines and vaccines without having any serious side effects.”

      Even if the qualifier “Reporters are asked to submit Yellow Card reports even if they only have a suspicion that the medicine may have caused the adverse reaction” means excessive over-reporting and that just 10% of the adverse reactions were caused by the vaccine that’s still a hell of a lot of deaths that have not had publicity, as compared with the 2 that have. Why are the deaths by blood clots considered to be definitely associated with the AZ vaccine whereas the other 702 including those from Pfizer (or 711 if you add on the 9 deaths possibly associated with unspecified brands of vaccine) are not definitely associated with the vaccines of AZ and Pfizer? Another thing that seems to indicate at least shoddiness on the part of this report is that it was published on April 1st and talks of 2 deaths from AZ, yet the next day the newspapers reported 7 deaths ( https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/apr/02/covid-further-rare-blood-clot-cases-found-in-oxford-astrazeneca-recipients ). Certainly not deliberate, but indicative of the need to be very wary of the facts and figures given about all this considering they not only seem to have got it considerably wrong but don’t even bother to mention the fact that they got it wrong.

      My suspicion following the publication of the list that the focus on blood clots covers up other deaths possibly caused by the vaccine stems from my lack of comprehension of why they should only focus on blood clots as an anomaly. It doesn’t seem any more anomalous than the other deaths, and in fact is proportionally less so than many of the other deaths. Look at this (deaths from various years around 2013 because I couldn’t be bothered to dig further to get the same year for each of these deaths…some of those medical sites you have to read half the report until you get to what you’re looking for, so, Mr. Impatient that I am, I chose the ones that focused on what I wanted pretty quickly). I presumed that deaths from blood clots meant deaths from venous thromboembolism (though in the list they say the deaths were caused by Immune thrombocytopenia and Thrombocytopeni, but venous thromboembolism is not mentioned), but I may be wrong.

      Number of deaths from blood clots in UK 2013 –

      “Over the 3-year period of 2013–15, the average number of deaths from venous thromboembolism in England was 12640 per annum.”

      2 (or 7) following AZ vaccine

      Number from cardiac disorders 2013 – 64,000

      https://www.bhf.org.uk/what-we-do/news-from-the-bhf/news-archive/2014/october/heart-disease-deaths

      Deaths from Cardiac disorders:

      51 following AZ vaccine

      39 following Pfizer vaccine

      64,000 is roughly 5 times the amount of 12640. But 51 is significantly over 5 times the amount of 7. So why focus on the 7? (originally 2). Why are blood clots more of an anomaly relative to normal illness-specific fatalities?

      Gastrointestinal disorders (2012) – 1,646 deaths –

      https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/deathsinvolvingclostridiumdifficileenglandandwales/2013-08-22

      14 following Pfizer vaccine

      6 following AZ vaccine

      1645 is roughly an 8th the amount of 12640. But 6 (for AZ) is almost the same as 7 for blood clots. So why focus on the 7 for blood clots? Why are blood clots more of an anomaly relative to normal illness-specific fatalities?

      Deaths from Nervous system disorders – 31,925 in 2014 –

      19 following Pfizer

      31,925 is roughly 2.5 times the amount of 12640. But 49 (for AZ) is well over 2.5 times the amount of 7. So why focus on the 7? Why are blood clots more of an anomaly relative to normal illness-specific fatalities?

      UK reports 7 blood clot deaths and 30 cases of rare blood clots among recipients of AstraZeneca jab; 9 deaths in Germany
      https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/apr/02/covid-further-rare-blood-clot-cases-found-in-oxford-astrazeneca-recipients

      “While many countries have resumed use of the vaccine after pausing their programmes, others have remained nervous. Among them, Canada has suspended use of the jab for people under the age of 55, while Germany has suspended routine use of the jab in the under-60s. The latter has noted 31 cases of CVST after giving 2.7m doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, 19 of which were associated with low platelets, and nine deaths. At present, most of these rare clotting events appear to be occurring in women under the age of 65 – but quite why this is remains unclear.”

      This 2015 article about deaths following the flu vaccine [https://www.heraldopenaccess.us/openaccess/death-after-a-flu-shot-a-viewpoint], finishes with “At worst (unsuitable vaccine and unsuitable recipient), vaccination may result in the collapse of immunity, severe exacerbation of existing health conditions, and rapid development of fatal complications. The above considerations do not call for utopic ‘personal’ flu vaccines, but they do emphasize the critical importance of evaluating individual PEI status prior to vaccination, and using this parameter as a novel stratification/fitness index. This index should be thoroughly refined, and key parameters of pre-existing humoral and cellular immunity having the greatest impact on the immune response to vaccination should be extensively examined. Novel national infrastructures, including banks of regularly updated personal serum and medical histories should be created, and novel methodology should be developed to ensure fast computerized individual evaluations, which is critical in a pandemic period. This approach will inevitably cause criticism as complicating an already complex problem. However, it may help break the deadlock of the current policy of influenza vaccination, maintain human health and save lives. “The race is on, the stakes are high, and the world is nervously watching”. With the Covid vaccines there is NO EVALUATION OF INDIVIDUAL PEI STATUS PRIOR TO VACCINATION (I’m presuming – hopefully rightly – that PEI here stands for “Personal Experience Inventory”). Moreover, the ‘experts’ advising the continued use of the AZ vaccine are using the justification that Covid itself carries a greater risk of blood clotting than the vaccination without acknowledging that the introduction of the same disease through direct vaccination injection into previously healthy people must carry a similar risk.

      Israel: 29 page document criticising the Pfizer-Natanyahu vaccination programme file:///tmp/mozilla_nick0/The%20Israeli%20People%20Committee%20-%20Interim%20Conclusion%20Report%20-%20April%202021.pdf

      “The Israeli People’s Committee has uncovered a multitude of malfunctions and failures at the administrative, ethical and legal levels during the COVID-19 vaccination campaign at the beginning of 2021 in Israel. In this document, we aim at presenting and elaborating the main features of these malfunctions, which have led to severe damages in many Israelis in the short term, and sadly to possible future damages. It seems that the entire country got caught up in a medical-social chaos, where the leadership has enabled a situation of fear and uncertainty to run its course out of control, and even contributed to its further enhancement. But most of all, we cannot ignore severe suspicions shared by all the committee members, that the fundamental sin, which led to the chaos and its casualties, is the way in which two very powerful personages, prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Pfizer CEO Dr. Albert Bourla, agreed upon a massive vaccination campaign in Israel that is unprecedented in scale and nature. A vaccination campaign that lacks effective safeguards for public safety, that is devoid of any concern for people who may be harmed by the vaccine, and that has allegedly guaranteed to encompass populations, for which the safety of the vaccine has not been tested (pregnant women and their fetuses), and later also children, for whom the need to be vaccinated is totally unclear, while pushing aside any safety considerations. From this exact episode, where both parties came to an agreement regarding the vaccination campaign, which involved a wide variety of ethical and safety violations, an unrestrained drama was initiated that has revealed itself to be impulsive, neglectful and reckless. The agreed upon vaccination campaign concerns matters of life and death, yet is being conducted in an amateurish, irresponsible and aggressive manner, and it led to the political arena taking over the medical arena and bending it to its needs, while paralyzing all alarm systems, monitoring measures and open scientific discussion. Unfortunately, most of the medical system collaborated with this unsupervised process, starting with the higher ranks, and ending with field doctors – some actively, some by keeping quiet from fear of reprisal.”

      The following letter was sent to The Lancet at the end of last December, by Michal Haran, M.D., Yitshal Berner, M.D. MPH, Moshe Royburt, MD, MHA:

      Michal Haran is an Israeli Hematologist (with an immune-deficiency disease – or something similar, I’m not 100% sure – due to which she’s wheel-chair ridden) who I just recently heard about, following her involvement in the Corona debate in general and the debate about the Pfizer vaccine specifically. I respect her very much, especially her delicate and emphatic way of debating and the simple and down-to-earth way in which she presents her thoughts (mostly in Hebrew-language platforms). Needless to say, she’s ostracized by many of her colleagues and presented by most of the mainstream media as a “Corona denier” and “anti-vaxxer”…

      About her:
      “I am a senior hematologist. My areas of interest are: Thrombosis and hemostasis; Malignant and non-malignant abnormalities of the immune system with emphasis on CLL; Mitochondrial dysfunction in hematological malignancies; Environmental exposure and nutritional interventions in both hematological and neurological disorders. I am also interested in the humanistic aspects of medicine and the way in which we can preserve them in the face of the growing complexity of medical systems.”

      Significant flaws in the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine trial

      Michal Haran, M.D., Yitshal Berner, M.D. MPH, Moshe Royburt, MD, MHA.

      The global Covid-19 pandemic has not only led to a harsh medical reality, more so in some countries than others, but has also devastated the economies of multiple parts of the world. It is therefore not surprising that a rush to develop vaccines for the disease has engulfed the world. Pfizer was the first to complete a (shortened) phase 2/3 trial, the results of which were reported in the New England Journal of Medicine 1. Unfortunately, this article reveals significant flaws in the conduction, analysis and reporting of the data and departs significantly from the usually high standards of this prestigious journal.

      In fact, to the best of my knowledge it is unprecedented that the corresponding author of this paper is an employee of the sponsoring company. This immediately casts a long shadow on the objectivity of reporting in the paper and the editorial decision to publish it 2. Indeed, a careful reading of the work reveals multiple problems.

      First, the efficacy of the vaccine in preventing the spreading of the virus and reducing infectivity, which is the most important factor in its ability to ameliorate the devastating effects of the pandemic, was not tested. Quite surprisingly, the effect of vaccination on overall number of virus-shedding individuals was not assessed, even though it is established that a significant fraction of the infected population capable of transmitting the disease are asymptomatic 3. Only a very narrow endpoint, of patients who meet both being symptomatic and having a positive PCR test was chosen. This does not take into account the significant inaccuracies of the PCR test 4. In fact, even the large group of patients with symptoms compatible with Covid-19 but PCR-negative (not mentioned in the paper but reported in the Pfizer FDA briefing document (www.fda.gov/media/144245/download), with very minor differences between the vaccine and placebo groups) was ignored. Thus, we are presented in this paper with a seemingly very impressive relative efficacy of 95%, which in fact gives us no information regarding absolute risk (blogs.bmj.com/bmj/2020/11/26/peter-dosh…, nor infectivity of the patients and very limited data regarding clinically significant end-points of severe disease, ICU admission or mortality. There is also no data regarding immunological studies in the various groups of patients. This data was only provided on a very small group of young and healthy patients in the phase I paper 5. This is important not only for efficacy, but also for assessment of the risk of unintended immunological sequelae. One cannot assume, based on such a small and selected group of patients, that there will be a good titer of virus-neutralizing antibodies and a favorable Th1/Th2 response in elderly patients or those with comorbidities known to have an effect on immune function.

      The adverse effect section of the paper conspicuously lacks any laboratory studies, which is surprising based on the fact that in the phase I group there were abnormalities of blood counts 5. It is also known that mRNA vaccines can be transferred to the liver 6, thus one would expect that all blood chemistries including liver and renal function tests would be evaluated to ensure that indeed there is no risk of end-organ damage.

      Understandably, the brief period of this clinical trial, two months, was an outcome of the general urgency caused by the pandemic. However, to conclude that “Safety over a median of 2 months was similar to that of other viral vaccines” is highly misleading. The mRNA vaccine technology is novel and as opposed to other vaccines, involves the transfection of cells with genetic material , and only phase I studies of such vaccines have been reported prior to this work. One significant and recognized risk of the expression of a foreign protein on self-cells is the induction of severe auto-immune reactions 7. Since there is no information on the distribution of the vaccine in different cell types and organs following intramuscular injection (in contrast, for example, to another vaccine candidate, for which such detailed information has been published 6), it is very difficult to assess the relevant risk. Certainly, a very short follow-up period does not provide a long enough time window to conclude that the risk for auto-immune reactions does not exist. The paper totally ignores this aspect.

      The paper only briefly mentions the highly recognized risk of vaccine-mediated disease enhancement, which the authors are fully aware. They wave this risk off as “theoretical”, and assess it to be unlikely based on data from 10 patients over a very short period of time. Clearly, this significant risk should have been much more fully addressed.

      Finally, the fast pace of the publication of this work has led to multiple inaccuracies. For example, it is unclear how two patients in the vaccine group who, as reported in the FDA briefing document (www.fda.gov/media/144245/download), were hospitalized with respiratory symptoms and findings in imaging studies, are not reported in the paper as severe adverse events. Also, there is an unexplained discrepancy between the number of patients with AIDS that are reported as participating in the study and the number of such patients for whom there is available safety data (only one). This is very important, as the inclusion of a significant number of HIV-positive patients purportedly alleviates the concerns of the potential risks in this patient population. These risks stem from with the significant immune dysregulation in these patients, as well as the potential reverse transcriptase activity that could inadvertently lead to the unwanted incorporation of the genetic material of the vaccine into the genome.

      In Summary, the way in which the data is presented in the paper creates a false sense of security regarding the efficacy and safety of the mRNA vaccine. This is extremely concerning, as the publication of this paper is important in promoting the rapid approval of the vaccine in numerous countries. I believe that due to the enormous effect the results of this trial have on the entire population world-wide, steps should be urgently taken to clarify all those issues. …

      Israeli vaccination law stalls

      “The passing of a bill that would allow obligating employees to get vaccinated against the coronavirus or undergo an occasional COVID test has stalled for two weeks due to opposition from the education and finance ministries. Health Minister Yuli Edelstein announced a month ago that he plans to enshrine this into law, but after the ministries expressed their opposition and legal challenges raised by the attorney general, there were no further attempts to advance the bill. The bill would obligate employers, including the state, to condition the arrival of an employee to the workplace on receiving a vaccine or presenting a negative test for the coronavirus. The bill would also apply to the Education Ministry and therefore to teaching staff as well.

      Police handed out the most coronavirus fines in Arab localities in February, even though per capita infection rates in these localities were lower than they were elsewhere, according to data from the Enforcement and Collection Authority, which enforces police fines. An analysis of the data indicates that 37 Arab localities lead the top 40 localities list, with only three Jewish localities making the cut, and that there seems to be little connection between the per capita infection rate in these localities and the number of fines distributed. For example, in Modi’in Illit, where there were 46 patients for every 1,000 people, only 1.7 reports were given for the same number of residents as they were in Tamra, where 22 reports were given to the same number of citizens even though there were 10 patients for every 1,000 people. “

    Professor of immunology interview reveals scary aspects of messenger RNA

    He says that a large majority of mRNA spike proteins, which have now been shown to be toxic, get into the bloodstream and can infect various parts of the body (brain, heart, etc) but also can be passed onto others through blood transfusions, and even through breastfeeding, potentially causing bleeding in babies, and, through infection in the ovaries, possibly causing infertility.

    Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is likely responsible for deaths of at least 10% of elderly patients of those who died following vaccination

    https://www.bmj.com/content/373/bmj.n1372

    “The expert group was established at the end of February 2021 to look into the cause of the first 100 reported deaths of nursing home residents who had received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. …Although the mortality rate in nursing homes is generally very high and the deaths of some nursing home residents after vaccination was anticipated, the Norwegian Medicines Agency wanted to determine whether the vaccine had possibly hastened any deaths and to gain a clearer understanding of the risks and benefits of its use in frail elderly people. The review reported on 19 May and concluded that a causal link between the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and death was considered “likely” in 10 of the 100 cases, “possible” in 26 cases, and “unlikely” in 59 cases. The remaining five were deemed “unclassifiable.””
    In other words, probably at least 10% and possibly as many as 36% of elderly people who died after having been vaccinated were killed (or had their deaths “hastened”) by the Pfizer vaccine. This report is already almost 2 weeks old and yet has been given virtually NO publicity in the media. Imagine how this might be replicated on a global scale. And yet any critique of this by the holocaust deniers is put down as being “anti-vaxxer”.

    Because of unusual death from vaccine, Belgium stops giving Johnson & Johnson vaccine to under-41s…unless they’re homeless!!!

    “The vaccine will continue to be used for the home vaccination of the elderly, and those in precarious situations such as the homeless, which is an important priority in the campaign. On Tuesday, Beke already stated in the Flemish parliament that the aim of giving every adult their first dose by 11 July could be in jeopardy. “If we cannot count on those vaccines, we will only achieve 85% vaccination coverage by 11 July,” he said. On 20 April, the EMA’s safety committee (PRAC) already announced that a “possible link” between rare blood clots and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was found. While it stated that the blood clots should be listed as “very rare side effects” of the vaccine, the Agency confirmed that the overall benefit-risk analysis remained positive, and did not recommend an age limit. Now, Belgium’s health ministers asked the EMA to carry out a new benefit-risk analysis for the vaccine, in function of age.”

    Another report in Flemish apparently says it’ll continue to be given to undocumented people as well.

    The Israeli People’s Committtee report on adverse side-effects of Covid, April-May2021
    https://dialectical-delinquents.com/covid1984-latest/2021-2/may-2021-covid1984/english-report-side-effects-april-may2021/

    “The silencing mechanisms of the Israeli health system regarding the adverse events related to the corona vaccine, and the denial of their severity and worrisome scope, combined with the fact that the mainstream media in Israel have ignored adverse events and avoided reporting them, have created a situation whereby the Israeli public is almost completely unaware of the existence, nature and prevalence of the post-vaccination adverse events….From our inquiry a disturbing image has emerged of the high rate of serious adverse events, observed in proximity to receiving the vaccine, even among young people. Many adverse events are life-threatening, and regretfully more than a few ended in death….here are our main findings:

    We received 330 reports of deaths occurring in proximity after the vaccination (90% up to 10 days after the vaccination). 64% are men. According to the ministry of health’s statement: only 45 deaths occurred in proximity after the vaccination.

     According to data from the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), during January-March 2021, in the midst of the vaccination operation, there was a 18% increase in overall mortality in Israel compared to the tri-monthly average mortality in the previous year. In fact, the period of January-March 2021 is the deadliest one in the last decade, with the highest overall mortality rates, when compared to the corresponding months over the last 10 years.

    Among the age group of 20-29, the increase in overall mortality rate is even more dramatic. In this group, during the same vaccination period, January-March 2021, there has been a 30% increase in overall mortality compared to the tri-monthly average mortality in 2020.

    A statistical analysis of data from the CBS combined with information from the ministry of health leads to the conclusion that the mortality rate amongst the vaccinated is estimated at 1:3000 (1:18000 for ages 20-49, 1:5000 for ages 50-69, 1:1100 for ages 70+). According to this assessment, it is possible to estimate that the number of deaths in Israel, which have occurred in proximity after the vaccination, currently stands at about 1600-1700 people.

    There is a high correlation between the number of people vaccinated per day and the number of deaths per day, in the range of up to 10 days post vaccination, in all age groups. For ages 20-49 – a range of 8 days from the date of vaccination to death; for ages 50-69 – 5 days from the date of vaccination to death; for ages 70 and up – 3 days from the date of vaccination to death.

    The risk of death after the second vaccination is higher than the risk of death after the first vaccination.

    Up until the publication date of this report, a total of 2646 reports of adverse events have been recorded by The Israeli People`s Committee, and the reports continue to flow in. These reports indicate damage to almost every system in the human body. They also highlight the incomprehensible gap between official Israeli media reports and what is really happening, enabling a “two worlds” situation due to journalistic failure to sense, identify and report on what is actually happening in citizens` real-life.

    The accumulated post-vaccination adverse events in our database is the outcome of our work with very limited resources and despite many kinds of government’s pressures aimed at concealing this critical information from the public eye. Therefore, we believe that our database of vaccine-related adverse events reflects a very small fraction of the real picture, which is about 1% of the actual number of cases according to our assessment.

    This assessment is added to the fact that around 250000 people did not show up to get the second dose of vaccine, despite all massive social and occupational pressure of the green passport. We believe that the majority of them decided so due to experiencing adverse effects following the first vaccine dose.

    There are close similarities in the reports of adverse events from countries with relatively high vaccination rates, with hundreds of death reports, as well as reports of damage to many human body systems.

    In our analysis, we have found a relatively high rate of cardiac-related injuries. 25% of all cardiac events occurred in young people below the age of 40, the most common diagnosis in these cases being myocarditis or pericarditis.

    Additionally, a high prevalence of massive vaginal bleeding, neurological, skeletal and skin damages have been observed.

    It should be noted that a significant number of adverse events reported are related, directly or indirectly, to coagulopathy (myocardial infarction, stroke, miscarriages, disruption of blood flow to the limbs, pulmonary embolism).

    The reporting of adverse events from hospitals and HMO clinics has been very low, and there is a tendency for a diagnostic bias that excludes the possibility of a link between the adverse events and the vaccination. There are probably many thousands of unreported cases. We get growing numbers of reports about this phenomenon from medical staff within hospitals. The general impression is that hospitals seem to be dealing with a chaos and confusion regarding the way to handle growing numbers of vaccine injured patients while at the same time to keep them out of records. Many doctors in emergency rooms nowadays begin their anamnestic inquiry by the question: “When were you vaccinated?” yet write nothing about it in discharge letters.

    The general policy regarding adverse effects seems to be “over-protective” of the idea of continuing the vaccinations at all costs. In this atmosphere, and in stark contrast to the accepted medical codes according to which mortality and morbidity caused after any medical treatment should be attributed to the treatment itself unless proven otherwise, most Israeli doctors avoid raising reasonable medical suspicions about the potential contribution of the vaccine to new adverse effects. Instead, doctors, hospitals and media all talk in one voice that says: “It has nothing to do with the vaccine, until you prove it completely”. This is, of course, just a smoke screen aimed at preventing the truth, which ruins the essential foundations of differential diagnosis and brainstorming based medicine, and whose consequence is a breakdown of normal and scientific medicine.

    In light of the extent and severity of post-vaccination adverse events we are witnessing, we would like to express the committee’s definite position that vaccinating children is both dangerous and lacking any medical basis. It may lead to adverse events, similar to those observed in adults (including young adults from age of 16), which could result in the death of completely healthy children. The committee believes that the intention to vaccinate children, while putting in danger their lives, their health, and their future development, has no medical justification since the coronavirus does not endanger children at all.

    According to US VAERS system 7 deaths in ages 0-17 were reported in relation to Covid 19 vaccination during 2021, 6 of them of Pfizer Biontec. We hope that the radical idea of vaccinating children against the coronavirus will soon be taken off the table; and if not, that it will be completely rejected by most of the parents around the world.

    Never has a vaccine injured so many! The American VAERS system reveals 3409 reports of mortality amongst vaccinated people in the United States in the first 4 months of 2021. This datum reflects a rise of thousands of percent from the annual average, which stood at 108 reports of post-vaccination mortality per year, whilst the difference in vaccination rate (in comparison to influenza vaccination) is less than 40%. In other words, more post-vaccination deaths have been recorded in the VAERS system during a single vaccination campaign than from all other vaccines combined over the preceding three decades. See the chart below.

    In light of all the above and the detailed information ahead and for the sake of the good, reliable and advanced medicine, for all people and from the pure intention, we would like to hereby declare the statement that all branches of medicine should agree about: “Once you apply new medication of all sorts to mass people and have insufficient knowledge about its true safety, all adverse effects that follow must be regarded as related to this medication until proven otherwise. This is the only way to obtain the true information, to ensure maximal safety surveillance and to make sure that non-medical motives will have no influence on the process of evaluating and learning the true nature of this medication and its influence on people.”

    Belgium: appeal by doctors against use of children as guinea pigs for the pharmaceutical industry

    https://www.kairospresse.be/nos-enfants-ne-peuvent-pas-etre-les-cobayes-de-lindustrie-pharmaceutique/

    The campaign to promote widespread vaccination against Covid-19 is intensifying at the cost of the most basic caution about its potential consequences for public health.

    There are more and more insistent messages in favour of vaccinating children. For example, the German Medical Association is recommending compulsory vaccination for children from kindergarten onwards from the start of the school year 2021-2022.

    We believe that it is time to appeal to reason to the Belgian Health Authorities and the government.

    First of all, it should be remembered that the vaccines currently administered to adults are experimental vaccines for which phase 3 clinical trials are underway. This explains why these vaccines currently only have a provisional marketing authorisation. In other words, all those who are vaccinated today are, for the most part, unknowingly participating in a world-class trial campaign.

    The reality today is that many questions remain unanswered and unsupported by scientific evidence about the safety, efficacy and even usefulness of vaccines as they are now being widely used.

    …The risks of potentially fatal coagulopathy, already listed in the United States in the VAERS adverse event reporting system and in its European equivalent, Eudravigilance, have been wrongly minimised by the health authorities.
    As early as 10 March, the association “Doctors for covid ethics” called on the EMA (European Medicines Agency) to withdraw approval for the use of genetic vaccines, all of which are implicated(1).
    Furthermore, there are credible reasons to believe that these same vaccines are likely to alter fertility, gestation and reproduction. A thorough investigation of this issue should at least be conducted before taking the risk of sterilising an entire generation(2).
    Finally, there is another potentially devastating effect of vaccination, immune evasion, which leads to the creation of mutants that have two potential effects, that of infecting a younger population and that of causing more deaths than in the absence of vaccination(3),(4)

    …It is known that, at least for the initial strain of the virus and the first variants to appear, the risk of serious covid for young people and even more so for children is very low. The essential criterion of effectiveness would therefore be that of reducing the transmission of the virus by contaminated people.

    However, the trials carried out by vaccine producers were not designed to measure the reduction in transmission risk(5). It is therefore not known whether vaccines prevent or significantly reduce transmission.

    Furthermore, while it is hoped that the majority of those vaccinated will recover without consequences, it is not possible to predict how many will develop delayed immune disease.

    Contrary to the optimistic statements of many of the most highly publicised experts, there is no certainty that current vaccines are truly effective.

    …The risk of mortality from Covid 19 for children is around 0.002%. It is therefore totally unjustified to vaccinate children and even adolescents against a disease that does not threaten them.

    Unless we consider that it is morally acceptable to make children play the role of guinea pigs, without them being able to expect any benefit for their health, we declare that the vaccination of children against Covid 19 must be prohibited and that it is the duty of parents to refuse it

    Israel: vaccine-resistant strains may force yet another lockdown

    An Israeli friend writes:

    “I doubt each and every new declaration concerning “new and dangerous” variants, basing myself on nothing other than the insanity of it all and the fact that the Israeli health authorities lie continuously… The fear mongering is just so over the top, especially now with the fear-mongering campaign for vaccinating children (and infants in the near future) that includes blatant lies about children-hospitalisations from Covid etc. (easily contextualized and debunked bet alternative voices from the medical and scientific profession), that you can’t
    believe anything they say…

    They already had to apologize and retract the existence of a new Chilean variant, a fact which the report you sent doesn’t mention, as well as most of the Israeli media…

    https://www.latercera.com/nacional/noticia/descartan-existencia-de-variante-chilena-del-covid-19-que-se-habia-reportado-en-israel/75GH45ENOFEOPIWRV2D6M636HU/

    I replied:

    “But what do they get from saying this? Surely saying the vaccine is possibly useless against new variants makes a mockery of the whole vaccination programme? They’d have more to gain from covering it up, no?”

    He replied:

    “You’re right, I guess, although it seems to me that they want to maintain a fear from the virus even after “everyone” is vaccinated, so I’m not sure what their strategy is, if there is one. So far they have been reassuring the public that the vaccines are “probably”, or to this-or-that extent, good for the other existing variants (when in fact they don’t really know), while at the same time alarming continuously through the media about new people arriving to Israel with the Indian or Mongolian or Utopian variant…”

    A brief summary of the Israeli People`s Committee Report of Adverse Events Related to the Corona Vaccine, April 2021

    https://4a1b9d73-4c47-4f3b-bb08-e515be8958ca.filesusr.com/ugd/3db409_3c4b29f97a7b4e2fb1d8d178ab138b91.pdf

    “Never has a vaccine injured so many….While the Prime Minister of Israel and senior officials of the Ministry of Health brag that Israel serves as a global model for nationwide vaccination, and while they boast that Pfizer has chosen us to be the experimental country thanks to the advanced technological systems of our HMOs [Health Maintenance Organizations], the state has systematically shut down all monitoring and tracking systems, which are designed to identify and alert of adverse events that occur in proximity of receiving the vaccine. This irresponsible conduct by the Ministry of Health during this mass operation providing an experimental treatment to millions of people, regardless of whether such conduct is negligent or intentional, has led to an unprecedented flood of thousands of serious adverse event reports after the vaccine on social media, which seems to be the only forum that still allows people to share their experiences. Surprisingly, such widespread phenomena have not received any media coverage or attention from public officials….

    *We received 288 reports of deaths occurring in proximity to the vaccination (90% up to 10 days after the vaccination). 64% are men. According to the Ministry of Health’s figures: only 45 deaths occurred in proximity to the vaccination.

    *According to data from the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), during January-February 2021, in the midst of the vaccination operation, there was a 22% increase in overall mortality in Israel compared to the bi-monthly average mortality in the previous year. In fact, the period of January-February 2021 is the deadliest one in the last decade, with the highest overall mortality rates, when compared to the corresponding months over the last 10 years.

    *Among the age group of 20-29, the increase in overall mortality rate is even more dramatic. In this group, during the same vaccination period, January-February 2021, there has been a 32% increase in overall mortality compared to the bi-monthly average mortality in 2020…. “

    Summary of the Israeli People’s Committee’s database regarding adverse events

    Of course, these do not necessarily automatically indicate a link between the vaccine and the “adverse events”, but the fact that there seems to be no mechanism for reporting, when reports are easily available for the UK (for instance), is indicative of the extremely cavalier attitude of the Israeli state. This, on top of the comparison with deaths for previous years, seems, in the absence of any other explanation, like a cover-up.

    2nd report from The Israeli People’s Committee on the barriers to reporting side effects of the vaccines (in Hebrew)

    Translation of part of it:

    “From the many testimonies brought to our attention by doctors and
    medical staff, we will give here as examples selected quotations from a
    letter sent to the committee by a medical staff member in the internal
    medicine department of one of the largest hospitals in the country,
    which describes a collection of hospitalization cases in his department,
    which indicate consistent problematic conduct, suffering from
    carelessness and lack of professionalism, and which largely stems from the fact
    that the Ministry of Health has never issued clear guidelines on what
    should be reported and what should not. The descriptions include a
    variety of pathologies that led to hospitalization, and which appeared
    in close proximity to Pfizer vaccine, including ITP, neutropenia, chest
    pain, vasculitis, fever, speech disorder, high blood pressure, acute
    renal failure and bradycardia. In all cases, physicians refrained from
    linking the vaccine to the phenomenon that led to hospitalization, did
    not even mention the vaccine in the patient’s medical file, and did not
    report the case to any external party – a fact that impairs differential
    diagnoses and is an obstacle to establishing accurate information. For
    example, the letter said: “It was not reported to any external party and
    if the issue arose from the family, they were simply told that there was
    no connection between the things because bradycardia takes a long time
    to develop.” In the context of another case, the letter stated: “Even
    chest pain near the vaccine with an increase in troponin in a patient
    without a cardiac background was not treated as possible results of the
    vaccine and of course was not reported to the Ministry and was not
    discussed with the patient.” Another example: “I took the patient to the
    ward and asked him about the reason for his hospitalization. He did not
    address the vaccine at all and only after I asked did he mention that
    the speech disorder appeared a few hours after the vaccination. Then the
    doctor on duty came to question him, where the patient did not mention
    the vaccine. Even after I gently hinted to the doctor that it might be
    worthwhile to check if there was a connection to the vaccine he did not
    address my words.An intensive care consultation was called, the on-call
    doctor examined the patient and told the doctor on duty that she should
    consult the senior doctor about differential diagnoses. I gently hinted
    to her that it might also be worthwhile to check if there was a
    connection to the vaccine, but she rejected me with the words ‘OK, okay,
    there could be a thousand reasons for this’ …”. Another example:
    “Although the diagnosis of vasculitis is abnormal, as well as following
    it with chemotherapy, the doctors did not think that the diagnosis
    should be linked to the vaccine, despite the strange coincidence of the
    two patients without similar background diseases with the same
    diagnosis, bed by bed, both about 10 Days after the vaccine (the patient
    with myocarditis was released and then returned after a few days). I
    asked a senior doctor how he knows it is not related to the vaccine and
    he simply replied that ‘it is a disease that develops over a long period
    of time, so it may not come from the vaccine’ …”.
    According to him, what makes the situation even worse is the fact that
    doctors, who are based on the principle of evidence-based medicine,
    refrain from reporting a phenomenon that is not known in the medical
    literature, and in his words “even if he (the doctor) thinks
    independently, in the end in order to give a diagnosis in the patient’s
    case it must be backed up in the professional literature. If there is no
    literature that talks about it (or if the literature is not written in
    the textbook accepted by the internal medicine doctor) he simply will
    not write it. If it has not been investigated, then it does not exist.”
    This evidence indicates a diagnostic tendency, which outright rejects
    any connection between the side effect and the vaccine, and thus causes
    a significant under-reporting of vaccine-related side effects from
    hospitals and clinics.”

In the group you can find doctors, nurses, health workers, psychologists from all over Italy, all united in the fight, not against Covid-19, but against the vaccine. Bound … by the desire to oppose the decree law that imposes on these categories the obligation to undergo the inoculation of the serum. … ” the group was born mainly to unite and undertake something all together, the legal ways as I see have already been undertaken by many of you so now it’s time to move in another direction. Enough talk, let’s take back our freedom by demonstrating peacefully in Rome on April 21 at 3 pm”….A few days ago another very disturbing post warned: “It’s not with lawyers that you win, but with our absence. Entire departments with a sudden shortage of staff, are worth more than 100 wasteful lawsuits!”. …As stated in paragraph 1 of Article 4 of Decree-Law No. 44 of April 1, “Vaccination is an essential requirement for the exercise of the profession and for the performance of work services rendered by those obliged.” …Those who demonstrate that making the vaccine subjects them to a health risk can refuse to do so. Without consequence to their job. The only thing needed is a simple medical certificate. …” This follows threats by the state not to pay them if they refuse the vaccination.

    France to use the Sorcerer’s Apprentice’s largely untried mix-dose vaccines after AstraZeneca increasingly avoided
    https://www.ft.com/content/db295bb9-d1fe-47f8-bc0f-eb40dfaf545f

    “France has become the second country after Germany to recommend that younger people who have had a first dose of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine be given a different jab for their follow-up shot. The mixed-dose approach has been recommended by health experts in both countries — despite there being little clinical trial data to support it …The World Health Organization reiterated its position on Friday that there was “no data on interchangeability of vaccine platforms”, noting further research was needed. The move comes as the European Medicines Agency said it is also probing a possible link between the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and four serious cases of unusual blood clots in the US, where it is currently being rolled out. It is not yet being distributed in the EU or UK…. … Élisabeth Bouvet, a vaccine expert and member of the HAS, said…“It is really a choice based on safety. …Given that the protection of the Covid-19 vaccines begins to diminish after three months, these people need an additional dose,” she added. “The idea is to give mRNA vaccine as a second dose for this population in a ‘prime-boost’ strategy.” Even in the absence of clinical data, Bouvet said that they believed the approach carried low risks of side effects and was likely to offer people additional protection given that the Covid-19 vaccines all aim at the same spike protein on the coronavirus. “We think that this approach will work,” she said. “There is no reason to expect any particular side effects with mixed dosing but it would be good to study the immune response it creates.” Peter English, a retired Public Health England consultant in communicable disease control, said it was “reasonable” to use other vaccines…”

    Note: “the protection of the Covid-19 vaccines begins to diminish after three months“. Also note how they say “they believed the approach carried low risks of side effects “. Isn’t “science” wonderful! Having originally based it’s criteria of “objectivity” on clinical trials, science has now become no better than “belief” regardless of evidence. Touching wood is about as scientific.

    Translation of doctor’s article on benefits of Ivermectin as compared with the vaccine

    Belgium: interview (in French) with pathologist who lodged legal complaint against the medical order and the directive sent to all doctors in Belgium in January 2021 that vaccination is an obligation and that doctors must promote the vaccination programme or risk facing severe sanctions

    https://www.kairospresse.be/tout-est-faux-lordre-des-medecins-au-service-du-polique/

    Amongst other things, he points out that there have been virtually no autopsies for those who have died (as compared with those who died from AIDS-related illnesses in the past), so it’s impossible to say whether someone died either because of Covid or died of something else whilst having Covid. See also this – “Despite the increasing number of published studies on COVID-19, in all the examined studies the lack of a well-defined pathophysiology of death among patients who died following COVID-19 infection is evident. Autopsy should be considered mandatory to define the exact cause of death, thus providing useful clinical and epidemiologic information as well as pathophysiological insights to further provide therapeutic tools.” However, the doctor’s claim that this comes from an order from the WHO is not true (see this: http://www.scientifique-en-chef.gouv.qc.ca/en/impacts-of-research-cat/covid-19-who-prohibits-autopsies-false-french-version-only/).

    State limits access to tests in order to increase vaccinations
    https://www.timesofisrael.com/serology-tests-scaled-down-to-encourage-vaccination-report/

    “Responding to an increase in demand for serology tests, which detect antibodies in the blood of people who have recovered from the disease or been vaccinated, the Health Ministry has decided to restrict access in an effort to encourage vaccination, Channel 12 reported Tuesday. Formerly, serology tests, which are administered by health providers or in hospitals, were available to anyone.…Since the policy was announced, there has been an increase in demand for the test, especially among young people in Arab and ultra-Orthodox communities, who are reluctant to get vaccinated, the report said. Health providers have struggled to meet increased demand for the tests, and the Health Ministry also wishes to limit tests in order to encourage vaccination.”

    ***

    The Director General of the Ministry of Health (Hezi Levi), responsible for the vaccination programme, and Israel’s “Corona Project Manager” (Nahman Ash) were almost certainly involved in a vaccination scandal in the 1990s involving illegal anthrax experiments on Israel’s young soldiers (https://www.972mag.com/why-did-the-israeli-army-conduct-anthrax-experiments-on-its-soldiers/ )
    Hezi Levi was the Chief Medical Officer for the IDF at the time and Nahman Ash was his second-in-command. “The trial’s organizers exploited the high motivation and innocence of the soldiers, most of whom were attending courses or were at the start of their military service, and whom they approached to participate in secret experiments. Crucial information was hidden from the soldiers during the recruitment process; they were forbidden from informing their unit doctor about their participation, and most of them didn’t even tell their parents. All this, along with the exploitation of troops that occurs within a hierarchy, completely undermined the informed consent given by the soldiers. The process was so tainted by defects that it’s doubtful whether the soldiers’ signatures can even be considered as agreement.”

    Israel’s Ministry of Health has published totally incorrect information about the Pfizer vaccine, saying it is FDA APPROVED ( the FDA is the USA’s Food and Drug Agency). The People’s (sic*) Committee says it has filed a motion in the High Court regarding a request for the Ministry of Health for a corrective publication regarding the deception involved in FDA APPROVED, to open a criminal investigation against those responsible for the misleading publication and to take disciplinary action against those responsible. This is a very significant document.

    UK: official report on adverse side effects of vaccines – 704 fatalities
    https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-vaccine-adverse-reactions/coronavirus-vaccine-summary-of-yellow-card-reporting#annex-1-vaccine-analysis-print

    It seems to me that the massive publicity given to the couple of deaths from blood clots of the AstraZeneca vaccine is possibly a cover for something far worse.

    As usual they have their get-out clause – that the vaccine did not necessarily cause the reactions

    “When viewing the vaccine analysis print you should remember that:

    Reporters are asked to submit Yellow Card reports even if they only have a suspicion that the medicine may have caused the adverse reaction. The existence of an adverse reaction report in the print does not necessarily mean that the vaccine has caused the suspected reaction.
    It may be difficult to tell the difference between something that has occurred naturally and a suspected adverse reaction. Sometimes these events can be part of the condition being treated rather than being caused by the vaccine.
    Many factors have to be considered when assessing whether the vaccine has caused a reported adverse reaction. When monitoring the safety of vaccines and medicines, MHRA staff carry out careful analysis of these factors.

    For a medicine or vaccine to be considered safe, the expected benefits will be greater than the risk of having harmful reactions. It is important to note that most people take medicines and vaccines without having any serious side effects.”

    Even if the qualifier “Reporters are asked to submit Yellow Card reports even if they only have a suspicion that the medicine may have caused the adverse reaction” means excessive over-reporting and that just 10% of the adverse reactions were caused by the vaccine that’s still a hell of a lot of deaths that have not had publicity, as compared with the 2 that have. Why are the deaths by blood clots considered to be definitely associated with the AZ vaccine whereas the other 702 including those from Pfizer (or 711 if you add on the 9 deaths possibly associated with unspecified brands of vaccine) are not definitely associated with the vaccines of AZ and Pfizer? Another thing that seems to indicate at least shoddiness on the part of this report is that it was published on April 1st and talks of 2 deaths from AZ, yet the next day the newspapers reported 7 deaths ( https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/apr/02/covid-further-rare-blood-clot-cases-found-in-oxford-astrazeneca-recipients ). Certainly not deliberate, but indicative of the need to be very wary of the facts and figures given about all this considering they not only seem to have got it considerably wrong but don’t even bother to mention the fact that they got it wrong.

    My suspicion following the publication of the list that the focus on blood clots covers up other deaths possibly caused by the vaccine stems from my lack of comprehension of why they should only focus on blood clots as an anomaly. It doesn’t seem any more anomalous than the other deaths, and in fact is proportionally less so than many of the other deaths. Look at this (deaths from various years around 2013 because I couldn’t be bothered to dig further to get the same year for each of these deaths…some of those medical sites you have to read half the report until you get to what you’re looking for, so, Mr. Impatient that I am, I chose the ones that focused on what I wanted pretty quickly). I presumed that deaths from blood clots meant deaths from venous thromboembolism (though in the list they say the deaths were caused by Immune thrombocytopenia and Thrombocytopeni, but venous thromboembolism is not mentioned), but I may be wrong.

    Number of deaths from blood clots in UK 2013 –

    “Over the 3-year period of 2013–15, the average number of deaths from venous thromboembolism in England was 12640 per annum.”

    https://www.thelancet.com/pdfs/journals/lanres/PIIS2213-2600(19)30448-5.pdf

    2 (or 7) following AZ vaccine

    1 following Pfizer vaccine

    Number from cardiac disorders 2013 – 64,000

    https://www.bhf.org.uk/what-we-do/news-from-the-bhf/news-archive/2014/october/heart-disease-deaths

    Deaths from Cardiac disorders:

    51 following AZ vaccine

    39 following Pfizer vaccine

    64,000 is roughly 5 times the amount of 12640. But 51 is significantly over 5 times the amount of 7. So why focus on the 7? (originally 2). Why are blood clots more of an anomaly relative to normal illness-specific fatalities?

    Gastrointestinal disorders (2012) – 1,646 deaths –

    https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/deathsinvolvingclostridiumdifficileenglandandwales/2013-08-22

    14 following Pfizer vaccine

    6 following AZ vaccine

    1645 is roughly an 8th the amount of 12640. But 6 (for AZ) is almost the same as 7 for blood clots. So why focus on the 7 for blood clots? Why are blood clots more of an anomaly relative to normal illness-specific fatalities?

    Deaths from Nervous system disorders – 31,925 in 2014 –

    https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/683860/Deaths_associated_with_neurological_conditions_data_analysis_report.pdf

    49 following AZ

    19 following Pfizer

    31,925 is roughly 2.5 times the amount of 12640. But 49 (for AZ) is well over 2.5 times the amount of 7. So why focus on the 7? Why are blood clots more of an anomaly relative to normal illness-specific fatalities?

    UK reports 7 blood clot deaths and 30 cases of rare blood clots among recipients of AstraZeneca jab; 9 deaths in Germany.
    https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/apr/02/covid-further-rare-blood-clot-cases-found-in-oxford-astrazeneca-recipients

    “While many countries have resumed use of the vaccine after pausing their programmes, others have remained nervous. Among them, Canada has suspended use of the jab for people under the age of 55, while Germany has suspended routine use of the jab in the under-60s. The latter has noted 31 cases of CVST after giving 2.7m doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, 19 of which were associated with low platelets, and nine deaths. At present, most of these rare clotting events appear to be occurring in women under the age of 65 – but quite why this is remains unclear.”

    This 2015 article about deaths following the flu vaccine (https://www.heraldopenaccess.us/openaccess/death-after-a-flu-shot-a-viewpoint)
    finishes with “At worst (unsuitable vaccine and unsuitable recipient), vaccination may result in the collapse of immunity, severe exacerbation of existing health conditions, and rapid development of fatal complications. The above considerations do not call for utopic ‘personal’ flu vaccines, but they do emphasize the critical importance of evaluating individual PEI status prior to vaccination, and using this parameter as a novel stratification/fitness index. This index should be thoroughly refined, and key parameters of pre-existing humoral and cellular immunity having the greatest impact on the immune response to vaccination should be extensively examined. Novel national infrastructures, including banks of regularly updated personal serum and medical histories should be created, and novel methodology should be developed to ensure fast computerized individual evaluations, which is critical in a pandemic period. This approach will inevitably cause criticism as complicating an already complex problem. However, it may help break the deadlock of the current policy of influenza vaccination, maintain human health and save lives. “The race is on, the stakes are high, and the world is nervously watching”. With the Covid vaccines there is NO EVALUATION OF INDIVIDUAL PEI STATUS PRIOR TO VACCINATION (I’m presuming – hopefully rightly – that PEI here stands for “Personal Experience Inventory”). Moreover, the ‘experts’ advising the continued use of the AZ vaccine are using the justification that Covid itself carries a greater risk of blood clotting than the vaccination without acknowledging that the introduction of the same disease through direct vaccination injection into previously healthy people must carry a similar risk.

    Israel: 29 page document criticising the Pfizer-Natanyahu vaccination programme
    file:///tmp/mozilla_nick0/The%20Israeli%20People%20Committee%20-%20Interim%20Conclusion%20Report%20-%20April%202021.pdf

    “The Israeli People’s Committee has uncovered a multitude of malfunctions and failures at the administrative, ethical and legal levels during the COVID-19 vaccination campaign at the beginning of 2021 in Israel. In this document, we aim at presenting and elaborating the main features of these malfunctions, which have led to severe damages in many Israelis in the short term, and sadly to possible future damages. It seems that the entire country got caught up in a medical-social chaos, where the leadership has enabled a situation of fear and uncertainty to run its course out of control, and even contributed to its further enhancement. But most of all, we cannot ignore severe suspicions shared by all the committee members, that the fundamental sin, which led to the chaos and its casualties, is the way in which two very powerful personages, prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Pfizer CEO Dr. Albert Bourla, agreed upon a massive vaccination campaign in Israel that is unprecedented in scale and nature. A vaccination campaign that lacks effective safeguards for public safety, that is devoid of any concern for people who may be harmed by the vaccine, and that has allegedly guaranteed to encompass populations, for which the safety of the vaccine has not been tested (pregnant women and their fetuses), and later also children, for whom the need to be vaccinated is totally unclear, while pushing aside any safety considerations. From this exact episode, where both parties came to an agreement regarding the vaccination campaign, which involved a wide variety of ethical and safety violations, an unrestrained drama was initiated that has revealed itself to be impulsive, neglectful and reckless. The agreed upon vaccination campaign concerns matters of life and death, yet is being conducted in an amateurish, irresponsible and aggressive manner, and it led to the political arena taking over the medical arena and bending it to its needs, while paralyzing all alarm systems, monitoring measures and open scientific discussion. Unfortunately, most of the medical system collaborated with this unsupervised process, starting with the higher ranks, and ending with field doctors – some actively, some by keeping quiet from fear of reprisal.”

    Significant flaws in the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine trial – letter sent to The Lancet but never published

    T. writes:

    The following letter was sent to The Lancet at the end of last December, by Michal Haran, M.D., Yitshal Berner, M.D. MPH, Moshe Royburt, MD, MHA:

    Michal Haran is an Israeli Hematologist (with an immune-deficiency disease – or something similar, I’m not 100% sure – due to which she’s wheel-chair ridden) who I just recently heard about, following her involvement in the Corona debate in general and the debate about the Pfizer vaccine specifically. I respect her very much, especially her delicate and emphatic way of debating and the simple and down-to-earth way in which she presents her thoughts (mostly in Hebrew-language platforms). Needless to say, she’s ostracized by many of her colleagues and presented by most of the mainstream media as a “Corona denier” and “anti-vaxxer”…

    About her:
    “I am a senior hematologist. My areas of interest are: Thrombosis and hemostasis; Malignant and non-malignant abnormalities of the immune system with emphasis on CLL; Mitochondrial dysfunction in hematological malignancies; Environmental exposure and nutritional interventions in both hematological and neurological disorders. I am also interested in the humanistic aspects of medicine and the way in which we can preserve them in the face of the growing complexity of medical systems.”

    Significant flaws in the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine trial

    Michal Haran, M.D., Yitshal Berner, M.D. MPH, Moshe Royburt, MD, MHA.

    The global Covid-19 pandemic has not only led to a harsh medical reality, more so in some countries than others, but has also devastated the economies of multiple parts of the world. It is therefore not surprising that a rush to develop vaccines for the disease has engulfed the world. Pfizer was the first to complete a (shortened) phase 2/3 trial, the results of which were reported in the New England Journal of Medicine 1. Unfortunately, this article reveals significant flaws in the conduction, analysis and reporting of the data and departs significantly from the usually high standards of this prestigious journal.

    In fact, to the best of my knowledge it is unprecedented that the corresponding author of this paper is an employee of the sponsoring company. This immediately casts a long shadow on the objectivity of reporting in the paper and the editorial decision to publish it 2. Indeed, a careful reading of the work reveals multiple problems.

    First, the efficacy of the vaccine in preventing the spreading of the virus and reducing infectivity, which is the most important factor in its ability to ameliorate the devastating effects of the pandemic, was not tested. Quite surprisingly, the effect of vaccination on overall number of virus-shedding individuals was not assessed, even though it is established that a significant fraction of the infected population capable of transmitting the disease are asymptomatic 3. Only a very narrow endpoint, of patients who meet both being symptomatic and having a positive PCR test was chosen. This does not take into account the significant inaccuracies of the PCR test 4. In fact, even the large group of patients with symptoms compatible with Covid-19 but PCR-negative (not mentioned in the paper but reported in the Pfizer FDA briefing document (www.fda.gov/media/144245/download), with very minor differences between the vaccine and placebo groups) was ignored. Thus, we are presented in this paper with a seemingly very impressive relative efficacy of 95%, which in fact gives us no information regarding absolute risk (blogs.bmj.com/bmj/2020/11/26/peter-dosh…, nor infectivity of the patients and very limited data regarding clinically significant end-points of severe disease, ICU admission or mortality. There is also no data regarding immunological studies in the various groups of patients. This data was only provided on a very small group of young and healthy patients in the phase I paper 5. This is important not only for efficacy, but also for assessment of the risk of unintended immunological sequelae. One cannot assume, based on such a small and selected group of patients, that there will be a good titer of virus-neutralizing antibodies and a favorable Th1/Th2 response in elderly patients or those with comorbidities known to have an effect on immune function.

    The adverse effect section of the paper conspicuously lacks any laboratory studies, which is surprising based on the fact that in the phase I group there were abnormalities of blood counts 5. It is also known that mRNA vaccines can be transferred to the liver 6, thus one would expect that all blood chemistries including liver and renal function tests would be evaluated to ensure that indeed there is no risk of end-organ damage.

    Understandably, the brief period of this clinical trial, two months, was an outcome of the general urgency caused by the pandemic. However, to conclude that “Safety over a median of 2 months was similar to that of other viral vaccines” is highly misleading. The mRNA vaccine technology is novel and as opposed to other vaccines, involves the transfection of cells with genetic material , and only phase I studies of such vaccines have been reported prior to this work. One significant and recognized risk of the expression of a foreign protein on self-cells is the induction of severe auto-immune reactions 7. Since there is no information on the distribution of the vaccine in different cell types and organs following intramuscular injection (in contrast, for example, to another vaccine candidate, for which such detailed information has been published 6), it is very difficult to assess the relevant risk. Certainly, a very short follow-up period does not provide a long enough time window to conclude that the risk for auto-immune reactions does not exist. The paper totally ignores this aspect.

    The paper only briefly mentions the highly recognized risk of vaccine-mediated disease enhancement, which the authors are fully aware. They wave this risk off as “theoretical”, and assess it to be unlikely based on data from 10 patients over a very short period of time. Clearly, this significant risk should have been much more fully addressed.

    Finally, the fast pace of the publication of this work has led to multiple inaccuracies. For example, it is unclear how two patients in the vaccine group who, as reported in the FDA briefing document (www.fda.gov/media/144245/download), were hospitalized with respiratory symptoms and findings in imaging studies, are not reported in the paper as severe adverse events. Also, there is an unexplained discrepancy between the number of patients with AIDS that are reported as participating in the study and the number of such patients for whom there is available safety data (only one). This is very important, as the inclusion of a significant number of HIV-positive patients purportedly alleviates the concerns of the potential risks in this patient population. These risks stem from with the significant immune dysregulation in these patients, as well as the potential reverse transcriptase activity that could inadvertently lead to the unwanted incorporation of the genetic material of the vaccine into the genome.

    In Summary, the way in which the data is presented in the paper creates a false sense of security regarding the efficacy and safety of the mRNA vaccine. This is extremely concerning, as the publication of this paper is important in promoting the rapid approval of the vaccine in numerous countries. I believe that due to the enormous effect the results of this trial have on the entire population world-wide, steps should be urgently taken to clarify all those issues. …
