A Conversation With The CDC, by Chuck

Alice in Wonderland makes more sense than the CDC, and its certainly more enjoyable reading. From Chuck at threadreaderapp.com:

ME: CDC, should I get poke if I already had Covid?
CDC: “Yes, you should be poked regardless of whether you already had COVID-19. That’s because experts do not yet know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19.”
~more~
ME: Oh, so we don’t know how long natural immunity lasts. So, how long does poke-induced immunity last?
CDC: “There is still a lot we’re learning about pokes and CDC is constantly reviewing evidence and updating guidance. We don’t know how long protection lasts for those poked.”
ME: Okay, but wait a second. I thought you said the reason I need the poke was because we don’t know how long my natural immunity lasts, but you’re saying we ALSO don’t know how long poke immunity lasts either. So, how exactly is the poke immunity better than my natural immunity?
CDC: …
ME: Uh … alright. But, haven’t there been a bunch of studies suggesting that natural immunity could last for years or decades?
CDC: Yes.
NEWYORKTIMES: “Years, maybe decades, according to a new study.”
ME: Ah. So natural immunity might last longer than poke immunity?
CDC: Possibly.
ME: Okay. If I get the poke, does that mean I won’t get sick?
BRITAIN: Nope. We are entering a seasonal spike and half of our infections and hospital admissions are poked people.
ME: CDC, is this true? Are there people in the U.S. catching it after getting poked?
CDC: We stopped tracking breakthrough cases. We accept voluntary reports but aren’t out there looking for them.
ME: Does that mean that if someone comes in the hospital with Covid, you don’t track them because they’ve been poked? You only track the UN-poked Covid cases?
CDC: That’s right.

The Vaccine Karens, by Ann Coulter

Karens seemed like a good term when the only thing they were demanding was that everyone wear a mask. Vaccine Karens seems too gentle for people insisting that we all get shot with experimental gene therapies masquerading as vaccines that are throwing off plenty of adverse side effects, including death. The more appropriate term is Vaccine Nazis. From Ann Coulter at anncoulter.com:

If I weren’t already staunchly pro-vaccination, the vaccine zealots would turn me against the COVID shot. The proof that they’re practicing religion and not science is their refusal to acknowledge the great heaping hunks of immunity a person gets from natural infection.

Obviously, you don’t want to contract COVID just to get all that boffo immunity, but lots of people have already been infected, so why can’t we count them the same as vaccinated?

The current research — and that’s all we have for the vaccines, too — indicates that natural immunity is not as good as vaccine immunity — it’s better! Study after study keeps finding that the previously infected have stronger, broader and longer-lasting immunity than people who’ve received the vaccine.

When the vaccinated, with their pipsqueak immunity, stop browbeating the already-infected, I’ll believe this is something other than a cult.

Why is the only proof of virtue — I mean, “Trusting the Science™ — a vaccination card and not a positive COVID test? Why don’t sports teams, concert halls and foreign countries accept proof of prior infection the same way they accept proof of vaccination?

     Nope. Your prior infection is no good here! We are accepting ONLY vaccination cards.

Whatever that impulse is based on, it’s not “science.”

CDC Says Vaccinated May Be as Likely to Spread COVID as Unvaxxed, as Reports of Serious Injuries After Vaccines Surge, by Megan Redshaw

Evidently the viral load of those who contract Covid is the same for the vaccinated and unvaccinated. From Megan Redshaw at childrenshealthdefense.com:

VAERS data released today by the CDC showed a total of 518,770 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID vaccines, including 11,940 deaths and 63,102 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020 and July 23, 2021

Data released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed total reports of serious injuries following COVID vaccination, across all age groups, spiked by 14,717 — to 63,000 — compared with the previous week.

The data comes directly from reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.

Every Friday, VAERS makes public all vaccine injury reports received as of a specified date, usually about a week prior to the release date. Reports submitted to VAERS require further investigation before a causal relationship can be confirmed.

Data released today show that between Dec. 14, 2020 and July 23, 2021, a total of 518,770 total adverse events were reported to VAERS, including 11,940 deaths — an increase of 535 over the previous week. There were 63,102 serious injuries reported during the same time period — up 14,717 compared with the previous week.

The Covid Scam Is Unraveling, by Paul Craig Roberts

The only people who believe anything the government is saying about Covid and vaccines are the bought-off corrupt, don’t-bother-me-with-facts acolytes of the church of state, and morons drowning in their own drool. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:

The Covid Scam is collapsing across the entire front much like the Wehrmacht after Stalingrad. Mask mandates and lockdowns are on the comeback because health authorities now admit that the Covid vaccines do not offer effective protection, especially against what are called “new variants.”  What is the point of a Covid passport when the vaccine does not protect and the vaccinated have to wear masks?   https://www.rt.com/usa/530394-cdc-vaccinated-masks-indoors/

Presstitute scum in the US falsely report that the “new outbreak” of Covid is among the unvaccinated young, and the push is on to vaccinate all the youth.  But the facts tell a different story. In the UK, for example, new Covid cases are exploding among the fully vaccinated, rising 40 percent in one week while new covid cases among the unvaccinated are declining by 22%.

Israel is another example where the rise in Covid cases is among the vaccinated.

It is hilarious to watch vaccine defenders argue that the rise in new Covid cases among the vaccinated is proof that the vaccines work!  No, I am not making this up.  Here is Katelyn Jetelina:  “The more vaccinated a population, the more we’ll hear of the vaccinated getting infected.”

Arieh Kovler explains: “Countries with high vaccination will see mostly vaccinated people getting ill from Covid.”  https://www.deseret.com/coronavirus/2021/7/20/22584134/whats-going-on-in-israels-outbreak-among-vaccinated-people

What they mean is that as populations become vaccinated, there is no one to catch Covid but the vaccinated.

‘Mathematically Impossible’ for Vaccines to Eliminate COVID, by Joseph Mercola

Vaccinated people are now getting Covid more than unvaccinated people, which isn’t a very advertisement for vaccination. From Dr. Joseph Mercola at childrenshealthdefense.com:

The latest data suggest the wave of COVID among unvaccinated has peaked and natural herd immunity has set in, while vaccinated individuals are actually becoming more prone to infection.

Story at-a-glance:

  • In the U.K., symptomatic COVID-19 cases among “vaccinated” individuals have risen 40% in one week, reaching an average rate of 15,537 new infections a day being detected. Meanwhile, symptomatic COVID-19 cases among the unvaccinated has declined by 22% and is now at a current daily average of 17,588.
  • This suggests the wave among unvaccinated has peaked and that natural herd immunity has set in, while “vaccinated” individuals are actually becoming more prone to infection.
  • Data show countries with the highest COVID injection rates are also experiencing the greatest upsurges in cases, while countries with the lowest injection rates have the lowest caseloads.
  • 100 fully injected crew members had tested positive onboard the British Defense aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth. The Navy ship has a case rate of 1 in 16 — the highest case rate recorded. This suggests vaccine-induced herd immunity is impossible, as these injections apparently cannot prevent COVID-19 even if 100% of a given population gets them.
  • It is mathematically impossible for COVID shots to eliminate SARS-CoV-2 infection. The four available COVID shots in the U.S. provide an absolute risk reduction between just 0.7% and 1.3%. Meanwhile, the noninstitutionalized infection fatality ratio across age groups is a mere 0.26%. Since the absolute risk that needs to be overcome is lower than the absolute risk reduction these injections can provide, mass vaccination simply cannot have a favorable impact.

Makary To Fauci: “It’s Time To Stop The Fearmongering” Amid Widespread Natural Immunity, by Tyler Durden

How about that, we may survive Covid for the same reason we’ve survived every other epidemic and pandemic: the acquisition of natural immunity in a sufficient percentage of the herd. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

It is not the first time Dr. Marty Makary has dared to speak out against the establishment’s doom narrative.

In February, he slammed Fauci’s forecasts of a return to normalcy not occurring before 2022, saying that we would see herd immunity well before that, urging that:

Experts should level with the public about the good news…

In March, Makary continued to bring the public’s atention to herd immunity, saying Fauci “needs to put up or shut up” on his fearmongering.

“Anthony Fauci has been saying that the country needs to vaccinate 70% to 85% of the population to reach herd immunity from Covid-19. But he inexplicably ignores natural immunity. If you account for previous infections, herd immunity is likely close at hand.

In May, the professor disputed CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky’s contention that COVID-19 variants could set back the march to herd immunity, adding that:

Don’t buy the fearmongering: The COVID-19 threat is waning,” adding “please, ignore the CDC guidance,” he urged, suggesting “Live a normal life, unless you are unvaccinated and did not have the infection, in which case you need to be careful.”

“We’ve got to start respecting people who choose not to get the vaccine instead of demonizing them,” Makary further asserted.

As a reminder, Makary is a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Bloomberg School of Public Health and Carey Business School… so he knows “the science” which as Pelosi said, is key to everything.

Here’s the scary chart that has Fauci and The CDC and Pelosi and her cronies all demanding masks (or worse)…

Covid Jab? by Jeremy Parfitt

A lot of good reasons not to take any of the Covid vaccines, from Jeremy Parfitt at lewrockwell.com:

Dear Lew,

I wrote this at the request of a friend who is receiving enormous pressure to take the jab. She asked me to write something to help her explain why she won’t take it.

An enormous amount of pressure is being placed on people, from politicians, public health officials, the media, celebrities and friends, to get vaccinated. Many go so far as to claim that researching the issue for oneself and doing a careful cost/benefit analysis is selfish. As with all things Covid, this obsessive push is unprecedented, and is not remotely supported by evidence. It is understandable why people are afraid, and mostly misinformed, about Covid in general, and these vaccines in particular. For 18 months we have been subjected to a non stop, entirely one sided, campaign of fear, censorship and misinformation. Factual information from the most credible experts in the world has been labelled “fake” and suppressed. Meanwhile misleading, and often false, information is simply asserted as fact, and those who challenge the narrative are criticized and suppressed. Something very strange is going on here.

Until recently, suggesting that making decisions about one’s own body is selfish, would be mostly unthinkable. Now it is commonplace. Determining what one puts in his body is a basic human right, it is important that we do not sacrifice it. Everyone has a right to assess their own risk and decide for themselves.

Here are some things to consider when deciding whether to take these vaccines.

– How dangerous is Covid for you should you become sick?

It is well known that the risk of Covid varies widely due to age and health. If you are old and sick, it might make sense to take the vaccines, if you are not, it is reasonable to decide not to. Here is the IFR (infection fatality rate) breakdown by age.

Note that for those under 55, the IFR is similar to the seasonal flu. But, and this is very important, these broad demographic categories include large numbers of very unhealthy people. Within each demographic, the IFR is an average of people at higher and lower risk. According to the CDC, 94% of those reported to have died from Covid had severe comorbidities (average of 2.6). This suggests that your health is the most important factor to consider when assessing risk. If you are healthy, not obese, don’t have diabetes or a heart condition, your actual risk will be significantly lower than the average IFR in your group. Under age 65, the risk to you, if you are healthy, is likely to be similar to, or less than, the risk posed by the seasonal flu. In younger groups, if one is healthy, the risk is negligible. The bottom line is that, if you are healthy, Covid is not very dangerous.

The Pointless Drive To Make Masks Great Again, by Brian McGlinchey

Nobody has been able to document that masks stop or slow the spread of Covid-19, and why would they? The meshes on mask range from 100 to 1000 times larger than the virus, thus the well known line that they’re like a chain link fence stopping a mosquito. From Brian McGlinchey at starkrealities.substack.com:

Governments keep forcing masks despite indications they’ve done little to slow Covid’s spread

Just when the forces of rationality had seemingly established a beachhead in the public health domain, they’re back on defense again, as the CDC declares vaccinated and unvaccinated people should wear masks indoors in areas of the country experiencing high transmission, and every schoolchild should be condemned to wear a mask all day long.

The moves, which come in response to surging case counts, seem to demonstrate an impulse that animates many questionable government policies: “We have to do something,” regardless of whether that something can be reasonably expected to have a material impact on the problem at hand.

Ample Reason to Doubt Masks’ Value

Most public and media discussion of mask policy reflects a foundational assumption that may well be false—namely, that widespread, all-purpose mask-wearing has had any meaningful impact on slowing the spread.

Intuition tells us covering our faces must be worthwhile. After all, if the virus is emitted from our noses and mouths, covering those openings has to make a big difference, right?

That gut feeling misleads us, though, because we tend to only think of the virus in terms of visible, tangible droplets masks can absorb. Indeed, the initial scientific consensus held that Covid-19 was exclusively transmitted by droplets, prompting the emphasis on distancing six feet from each other—room enough for gravity to pull those droplets out of the air.

Diaper Report 7/27/21, by Eric Peters

For many people, losing weight and getting healthy would lower their chances of contracting Covid far more than masks, social distancing, lockdowns, or vaccines. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

You can run, but you can’t hide goes the saying. True enough. But you can refuse. And you can quit.

That is the advice I have given a good friend of mine upon hearing the news that the Department of Veterans Affairs will require workers to submit to medical experiments using FDA-unapproved “vaccines” as the price of their continued employment.

My friend is a nurse who works at a VA hospital. He needs a “vaccine” like a sheep needs a wool sweater. This friend is my lifting buddy and he’s as hale and hearty as an oak and neither old nor obese – though many of his co-workers are the former. And – wouldn’t you know it – it is precisely these people who are the most adamant that he be “vaccinated.” 

This is one of the many halting inversions of CoronaMonoMania. People who clearly make no effort to be healthy – who guzzle six packs of soda daily, do not exercise, eat grotesque quantities of junk food and often smoke on top of it – finger-wag at people like my buddy, who isn’t “at risk” and presents no risk to them – because he chooses to be healthy by taking care of his health.

These fatties – sorry, but honest language is often necessary language – could greatly reduce their risk of getting sick (from anything) and from getting chronically sick (as from diabetes, hypertension and heart disease- all of which magnify the risk of the ‘Rona) if they would just drop the extra 50 pounds they’re lugging around their waists.

Choice Antipathy, by Eric Peters

Hostility against free choice continues to mount as our betters decide what’s best for us. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

A long, long, time ago – none apparently remember – people could decide to buy an electric car if that’s what they wanted and weren’t punished if they didn’t want one. They were free to choose.

What a concept!

Americans have, to a sad extent, forgotten what that was like and many are actively hostile to the concept for reasons that are psychologically interesting.

A psychologically healthy person does not care what kind of car his neighbor drives, provided his neighbor pays for it. A psychologically disturbed person cares very much what kind of car his neighbor drives and wishes to make him pay for it. He seeks to punish him for driving a car he does not like, as via exorbitant taxes sicced on his neighbor’s car or the fuel it uses or perhaps restrictions on where he is allowed to drive it.

Yes, of course – there is the putative nostrum about non-electric cars “changing” the “climate”  – a transparently non-specific, non-objective assertion that is of a piece with the one made about people who aren’t sick possibly spreading a sickness they might have. It is a wonderfully elastic, open-ended and difficult to “deny” thesis – which is precisely how it serves its intended purpose.

If it is accepted that vague assertions are synonymous with facts.

The “climate” is “changing”? How, exactly? How much, exactly? It is because people are not driving electric cars? How, precisely? Prove that people who are not driving electric cars are “changing” the “climate” and then prove that this “change” is something that is causing harm.

No vague if scary assertions, please. One can assert all kinds of things. As for instance 3 million dead from the ‘Rona. As for instance “asymptomatic” spread. If assertions, however scary, are to be the justification for impositions than any imposition can be justified by painting a scary picture – as Al Gore did, literally – in his now-ancient movie that asserted we’d be under water by now or at least treading it.

A fact, on the other hand, is objective. Something is  – or it is not. It did – or did not – happen. Like the coastlines going glub-glub-glub under water, for instance. There is no need to argue about it because it just is (or isn’t) and that is the elegance – and justice of it.

If it can be shown – if it is a fact – that not driving an electric car “changes” the “climate” in a way that is harmful then it is not unreasonable to favor it. But it is the definition of unreasonable to demand it when there is nothing more behind it than assertions based on projections; on scary pictures like Al Gore’s movie and Greta Thundberg’s twisted visage.
