Biden Brings out the Stick
The president is no longer dangling the rewarding carrot… but seizing the punishing stick…
The administration is mandating vaccination for all federal employees — and the employees of all federal contractors.
Federal employees could previously slip through a loophole. They could go unvaccinated if they endured weekly testing.
Now the string is pulled tight… and the loophole closes.
Defiance will warrant indefinite suspension from duties, such as they are.
President Joe Biden on Thursday will impose more stringent vaccine rules on federal workers by signing an executive order requiring all government employees be vaccinated against COVID-19, with no option of being regularly tested to opt out, according to a source familiar with the plans.
During a major speech meant to lay out a new approach to combating the coronavirus, the president will also sign an executive order directing the same standard be extended to employees of contractors who do business with the federal government. The Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, Indian Health Service and National Institutes of Health will also complete their previously announced vaccination requirements, which the White House estimates covers 2.5 million workers.
Just so. Yet what about those employees who were afflicted with the virus but lived?
Natural Immunity Is up to 27 Times Stronger
The previously infected possess the mighty antibodies that keep the enemy outside the gates.
Studies indicate — our men investigated — that natural immunity confers up to 27 times the defense of vaccines.
Why would the naturally immunized require vaccination if their own immunity is vastly superior?
We can conceive of no reason in law or equity why they would. Yet apparently no exceptions will be granted…
We must all be broken to the common harness, we must all yank in one direction, we must all march in step.
We must all be members of the regiment.
Young and old, robust and weak, healthy and sickly — all must fall under harsh political discipline.
How Beneficial Are the Vaccines?
We might grant the public health goons a fairer hearing if vaccines were reliable sentries.
Yet the evidence indicates — again, our men investigated — that these vaccines often allow the enemy in.
That is, the present menace is not a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.” A representative sample of the vaccinated are likewise afflicted.
Here we speak by the book. Look to the United Kingdom…
Through Aug. 15, 58% of COVID sufferers aged 50 and over admitted to hospital had received both doses.
They were “fully vaccinated.”
Perhaps that is true, allow the vaccine drummers. But hospitalization is not death.
They say vaccines will keep the patient pegging along, however diminished. And in many cases they may.
Yet consider: 70% of this over-50 cohort were dispatched to the morgue. They were partially or fully vaccinated.
They are dead nonetheless.
Now look to the nation of Israel…
The Curious Case of Israel
Israelis are among the most vaccinated peoples of Earth.
Yet through mid-August, the fully vaccinated represented 59% of worrying cases.
That is, Israeli data replicate nearly perfectly United Kingdom data.
A certain Dr. Kobi Haviv, director of Herzog Hospital in Jerusalem, claims the fully vaccinated represent 85–90% of hospitalizations at his sick house.
How many of these have succumbed we do not know. Our understrappers cannot locate perfectly reliable data.
Yet we hazard the toll exceeds the threshold of statistical significance. Israeli data further indicate that:
The fully vaccinated are 27 times more likely to acquire symptomatic COVID than those who acquired natural immunity through infection.
Dr. Martin Kulldorff professes medicine at Harvard University. From whom:
In Israel, vaccinated individuals had 27 times higher risk of symptomatic COVID infection compared to those with natural immunity from prior COVID disease. No COVID deaths in either group.
Affirms Science magazine, dated Aug. 26:
The natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers considerably more of a shield against the Delta variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, according to a large Israeli study… The newly released data show people who once had a SARS-CoV-2 infection were much less likely than vaccinated people to get Delta, develop symptoms from it or become hospitalized with serious COVID-19.
We must assume Americans share a general biology with Israelis. So we ask once again:
Why demand universal vaccination?
They do not indemnify against the virus. They do not rival natural immunity — if the studies hold.
They may limit hospitalizations and deaths — God bless them — but their healthful effects appear to erode after several months.
Hence the yelling for booster shots.
Yet each dose of vaccine presents risk. The precise numbers of severe side effects… and deaths… are not known.
But they are likely far greater than reported. Perhaps by many multiples.
Vaccine fatalities may run to the tens of thousands, dramatic side effects to the hundreds of thousands.
And the risk of severe side effects increases with each needling.
How many will suffer agonies when drilled with a fourth, a fifth, a sixth, a ninth booster?
Here is another question: Are the vaccines themselves propagating the very virus they are designed to rout?
That is, are the vaccines themselves frankensteining new variants into existence?
It is a possibility we must consider…
The “Cure” Could Be the Problem
As bacteria outstrategize and outflank antibiotic medicines, viruses can — to our understanding — outstrategize and outflank vaccines.
Vaccines force the virus to “evolve” in rapid fashion.
Here is Dr. Robert Malone, pioneer of the mRNA technology upon which these vaccines are structured:
The most important reason why a universal vaccination strategy is imprudent tracks to the collective risk associated with how the virus responds when replicating in vaccinated individuals.
Here, basic virology and evolutionary genetics tell us the goal of any virus is to infect and replicate in as many people as possible. A virus can’t efficiently spread if, like with Ebola, it quickly kills its hosts…
The more people you vaccinate, the greater the number of vaccine-resistant mutations you are likely to get, the less durable the vaccines will become, ever more powerful vaccines will have to be developed and individuals will be exposed to more and more risk.
Dr. Malone is not the lone voice crying out from his wilderness.
Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche is an authority on the science of vaccination. He has provided his expertise to Novartis Vaccines and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to name some.
According to this fellow:
There can be no doubt that continued mass vaccination campaigns will enable new, more infectious viral variants to become increasingly dominant and ultimately result in a dramatic incline in new cases despite enhanced vaccine coverage rates. There can be no doubt either that this situation will soon lead to complete resistance of circulating variants to the current vaccines.
A Saner Alternative
Here then is irony itself. The hunt for the cure could drive the cure beyond reach.
And so the dog undertakes a merry chase of his tail.
The tail, the virus, will always maintain its lead.
Does a saner alternative exist? Yes, argues the aforesaid Dr. Malone:
A far more optimal strategy is to vaccinate only the most vulnerable. This will limit the amount of vaccine-resistant mutations and thereby slow, if not halt, the current vaccine arms race…
There has been much controversy over ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Yet with the emergence of a growing body of scientific evidence, we can be assured these two medicines are safe and effective in prophylaxis and early treatment when administered under a physician’s supervision.
Numerous other useful treatments range from famotidine/celecoxib, fluvoxamine and apixaban to various anti-inflammatory steroids, vitamin D and zinc…
The American people deserve better than a universal vaccination strategy under the flag of bad science and enforced through authoritarian measures.
The American people may deserve better.
But if universal vaccination plows on… forcing ever fiercer devil variants… they may never get better.
