Omicron a wolf in sheep’s clothing, by Geert Vanden Bossche

There’s no assurances that future variants will be as mild or less mild than Omicron, especially for the vaccinated. This article is difficult to read because of the medical terminology, so you may want to skip to the “Lessons to be Learned” section. From Geert Vanden Bossche at voiceforscienceandsolidarity.org:

Dedicated to all the courageous Canadian and American truckers and to the doctors who support them in their vitally important fight against vaccine mandates and immunologic discrimination.

Will Omicron induce herd immunity or will it enable SARS-CoV-2 to transition into variants capable of potentiating ADE in vaccinees?‍

Could Omicron metamorphose into a wolf in sheep’s clothing?

Given the high and steadily increasing vaccine coverage rates in large parts of the world and the ongoing mass vaccination of children and continuation of booster campaigns, I am of the opinion that Omicron has the capacity to evolve into a much less benign variant, regardless of whether or not infection prevention measures are relaxed or lifted.

A coronavirus (CoV) can only replicate and mutate. The widely held belief that during the course of a pandemic viruses tend to become more infectious but less virulent is a myth—one kept alive by those who don’t understand the evolutionary dynamics of a pandemic. The latter are fully dependent upon the outcome of the interplay between the virus and the host immune system at a population level. Abiding by this ‘rule’ is the sole qualifier necessary to be an expert of viral pandemics. For several months I’ve been warning that continued mass vaccination and high vaccine coverage rates would prevent SARS-CoV-2 (SC-2) from generating sufficient herd immunity to control, let alone end, the current pandemic (1, 2, 3). The advent of Omicron hasn’t changed my mind, on the contrary!

Are They Finally Admitting Natural Immunity? By Jeffrey A. Tucker

Is real, as opposed to Covid commissars’ science, finally winning. From Jeffrey A. Tucker at brownstone.org:

In late January, the CDC published a report that made what might have been regarded as a shocking claim. If you have had Covid, the CDC demonstrated in a chart, you gain robust immunity that is better than that of vaccination, especially concerning duration.

That should be nothing surprising. Brownstone has chronicled 150 studies making that point. What made this new chart different was that it came from the CDC, which has buried the point so deeply for so long as to amount to a near denial.

So there: the CDC says it. So nonchalant! So uneventful!

If people had understood this two years ago, plus been made more completely aware of the dramatic risk gradient by age and health, lockdowns would have been completely untenable.

The society-wide mandates and lockdowns depended on keeping the public ignorant on settled points of cell biology and immunology, plus pressuring social media companies to censor anyone who didn’t fall in line. Here we are all this time later and the truth is coming out.

Had the knowledge of risk gradients and immunities been in the forefront of policy makers’ minds – instead of wild fear and obsequious deference to Fauci – we would have focused on protecting the vulnerable and otherwise allowed society to function normally so that the virus would become endemic. We would not only have saved thousands of lives; we could have avoided the vast economic, educational, cultural, and public-health wreckage all around us.

CDC Admits Natural Immunity Trumps Vaccine Immunity — 5 Months After Touting Vaccines as Superior, by David Charbonneau, PhD

Mothers decades ago knew the power of natural immunity. They’d hold chicken pox parties where kids who hadn’t had chicken pox would be exposed to kids who had it. The healthy kids would then get chicken pox and were inoculated for life. Who needed vaccines? Maybe today’s coronavirus commissars didn’t have the right type of mothering. It would explain a lot. From David Charbonneau, PhD, at childrenshealthdefense.com:

A Jan. 19 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed natural immunity against COVID was at least three times as effective as vaccination alone at preventing people from becoming infected with the Delta variant.

Overall, the study showed natural immunity outperformed vaccine immunity when it came to preventing infection and hospitalization from Delta.

The results contradicted a previous CDC study, published in August 2021, which concluded vaccination was better than natural immunity. The CDC issued a media statement about the August study, which was widely covered by mainstream press.

When a much larger Israeli study was published two weeks later, finding the opposite, the CDC did not offer any comment or analysis on the new data.

“The CDC is now finally revising its position five months later,” said Dr. Madhava Setty, senior science editor for The Defender. “This is a major problem with the CDC and its data. They have been opaque and late to the game from the beginning.”

Are vaccines interfering with natural immunity?

The latest CDC study examined four categories of people in California and New York between May and November 2021: unvaccinated and vaccinated who survived a previous COVID infection, and unvaccinated and vaccinated who had never been infected.

While the highest case rates were among those who had neither previous exposure nor vaccination, the outcomes with Delta for those who were unvaccinated but previously exposed were substantially better than for those whose immunity came from vaccination alone.

Do Not Take Part in the Lie, by Robert W. Malone, MD, MS

Acquiescence to a lie perpetuates it. From Robert W. Malone, MD, MS, at rwmalonemd.substack.com:

Good news from South Africa!

So, it has been a busy week. As I prepare for getting on a plane to head back to Virginia from Austin, Texas, I am taking a moment to try to breath and to write down some thoughts.

Yesterday, I had to take an antibody test in order to get into the studio in Austin.  The good news is that my natural immunity from my last round of COVID is robust – with IgA and even IgM Antibodies present.

This brings me again to one of my biggest issues with the public policy response.  Natural immunity equals or trumps immunity from the genetic vaccines, because the natural immune response is broad (against the all 29 proteins of the SAVS-CoV-2 virus) and appears to hold up better against Omicron. This sustained and robust natural immunity also applies to children.  We all know it.  Why won’t our government and the main stream media admit it?

Why is it that the CDC website that lists 146 million people having already had COVID-19 in the USA has not been updated since October 2, 2021?  A quick, back of the napkin calculation projects at least another 20-30 million have had COVID since then.  Bringing the number of people who have had COVID to around 170 million.  Well over half the people in the USA.

So, now comes a more transmissible but weaker version of the virus.  We should all be celebrating!  Over half of us have natural immunity.  Over half of us are vaccinated. Unless we are elderly or have significant other co-morbidities, we will be fine.  For many, if not most, will seem like another cold, if we notice it at all. Even the unvaccinated or COVID-19 naive person should be just find, if they don’t have significant co-morbidities.

The Psychological Cruelty of Denying Natural immunity, by Jeffrey Tucker

It’s definitely cruel to deny natural immunity, and its definitely insane, evil, or both to try to replace it with much inferior vaccine immunity. From Jeffrey Tucker at brownstone.org:

Every sick child, and probably every adult at some point, asks that existential question: why am I suffering?

No answer is satisfying. To be sick is to feel vulnerable, weak, not in control, not in the game. Life is chugging along outside of your room. You can hear laughter, cars going here and there, people out and about. But you are stuck, shivering under blankets, appetite disrupted and struggling to remember what it was like to feel healthy.

With fever, all of this is worse because the capacity for one’s brain to process information with full rationality is deprecated. High fever can induce a form of brief insanity, even involving hallucinations. You imagine things that are not true. You know that but can’t shake it off. The fever breaks and you find yourself in a pool of sweat, and your hope is that somewhere in this mess the bug has left you.

For children, it is a scary experience. For adults too, when it lasts long enough.

From the depths of the suffering, people naturally look for a source of hope. When is recovery? And what can I expect once that happens? Where is the meaning and the purpose behind the ordeal?

For a conventional respiratory virus, and for many other pathogens, generations have known that there is a silver lining to the suffering. Your immune system has undergone a training exercise. It is encoding new information. That is information your body can use to be healthier in the future. It is now prepared to fight off a similar pathogen in the future.

From the depths of suffering, this realization provides that much-needed source of hope. You can look forward to a better, healthier life on the other side. You will now confront the world with a shield. That dangerous dance with pathogens has been won for at least this particular virus. You can enjoy a stronger and healthier you in the future.

For generations, people understood this. Particularly in the 20th century, when knowledge of natural immunity became more sophisticated, along with the documentation of herd immunity, this became culturally entrenched.

Another Study Finds That Natural Immunity Protects Better Against Infection Than Pfizer Vaccine, by Noah Carl

After six months a big bowl of chicken soup gives you more protection against infection than Pfizer’s vaccine, and with chicken soup you enjoy the booster. From Noah Carl at dailyskeptic.org:

At the end of August, a study was published showing that natural immunity provides much better protection against infection than the Pfizer vaccine. It was described by UCL’s Francois Balloux as “a bit of a bombshell”.

Subsequent studies have compared natural and vaccine-induced immunity at the cellular level. One found that infection-induced antibodies “exhibited superior stability and cross-variant neutralisation breadth” than vaccine-induced antibodies, suggesting that people who’d already been infected had better immunity against the then-novel Delta variant.

However, as I noted in my write-up of the “bombshell” study, its findings still needed to be replicated. After all, certain datasets or methods of analysis can sometimes yield quirky results, which don’t survive independent empirical tests.

Encouragingly, the findings now have been replicated – by another team of Israeli researchers, using a different dataset.

In the latest study, Yair Goldberg and colleagues tracked all the individuals in their dataset (of people in Israel) who had tested positive or received two doses of the Pfizer vaccine before 1st July, 2021. They then compared the number of infections in previously infected versus vaccinated individuals from August to September of 2021.

The researchers also examined the number of infections among those with so-called ‘hybrid immunity’ – i.e., previously infected individuals who got vaccinated.

For each of the three groups, they counted the number of infections and the number of days ‘at risk’ (i.e., the total number of people multiplied by the number of days on which they were ‘at risk’ of becoming infected). Adjustments were made for age, sex, ethnicity, calendar week and a measure of risk exposure.

Stories that the mainstream media will not cover, by Steve Kirsch

Anything that suggests the vaccines might be dangerous, or anything that suggests that natural immunity is better than vaccinated immunity, is ignored by the mainstream media. From Steve Kirsch at stevekirsch.substack.com:

A collection stories that for some odd reason won’t get any press coverage. I’m not exactly sure why…

I hear so many incredible stories you’ll never see in the mainstream media, I thought I’d start an article to collect them. I plan to add more to this list over time.

Why am I doing this? Because the press isn’t reporting these stories and these stories need to be told.

Have I fully vetted and verified all these stories personally? No. But they seem very plausible based on stories I have heard from reliable sources. So with that caveat, here goes.

Nurse is COVID recovered yet shunned by her peers. That makes no sense.

Caroline Stepovich has been a nurse for the past 37 years.

She got COVID and recovered. She still suffers from long-haul symptoms.

She isn’t vaccinated, she knows the vaccine are dangerous, she knows too many vaccine injured, and there is no way she’s going to get the vaccine. No benefit, only risk to her. It would be a really dumb decision.

She is shunned by all her vaccinated friends (including other nurses) who:

  • blame her for the pandemic
  • feel it is dangerous to be around her
  • say she is selfish
  • say that she isn’t “a team player”
  • claim she is evil for not doing the right thing by getting vaccinated.

She calmly tells her friends that as someone who is COVID recovered, she is much safer to be around since even if she gets re-infected, she cannot transmit the virus. And furthermore, if she does get re-infected, she won’t get hospitalized or die.

Caroline is superior to her vaccinated friends from both a risk and burden perspective. There is no evidence that she can infect her friends and she isn’t a burden on society if she gets re-infected. Her friends don’t have a single advantage over her in any way.

Her friends tell her that what she said isn’t true and is misinformation.

Wow. What Caroline says comes right from the CDC (showing if you are COVID recovered there is no evidence that shows you can transmit a subsequent infection) and a Harvard study (showing people who have recovered immunity don’t get reinfected).

I don’t know where her friends are getting their information. Maybe they should subscribe to my substack?

Only Two Things Are Infinite…., by Karl Denninger

As long as the world stays on the vaccine/booster treadmill, new variants will pop up that the vaccines and boosters can’t address. This of course delights the vaccine and booster makers, but it puts the rest of the world on the Doom Loop, getting sicker and sicker into a mass die-off. From Karl Denninger at market-ticker.org:

….. the universe and human stupidity.

And I’m not certain about the former. — Einstein.

In response to a “new variant” of Covid-19, which has  now been named Omicron the world has suddenly gone mad — once again.  Travel lockdowns, constraints, etc.  The stock market collapsed by over 900 DOW points (which many years ago would be called a “crash”; these days its just a bad day.)

Contemplate these facts:

  • This “variant” has been found all over the world already.  Therefore its already everywhere.  Locking down travel after it is already in your nation is stupid and does nothing.  The variant is either going to become dominant or it will not. You cannot alter that course once it gets to you — and no matter where you are it already has.
  • This “variant” has no evidence of being more-deadly; it may in fact be less-so.  Indeed that is the natural mutational pattern coronaviruses follow over time.  There is no evidence in the form, for example, of higher hospital admissions, ICU utilization and death in those in which this variant has been detected.  In other words thus far all the scaremongering has been based on….. exactly nothing as there are no facts currently in evidence to support such fear.
  • The vaccines clearly do not work.  International travel has been vaccinated-only everywhere for quite some time.  So the person(s) who brought the virus into your nation with this “variant” were vaccinated.  The market, of course, responded to this news by spiking the vaccine companies, specifically Moderna.  You have to wonder what sort of stupidity would drive someone to consider a firm that has one product which clearly did not work a “buy” in a situation like this.  Mass psychosis is the only reasonable explanation.
  • Lockdowns and constraints clearly do not work either.  The virus mutated because that’s what viruses do, and specifically coronaviruses do this all the time.  It’s common.  Further, vaccinating into an outbreak promotes vaccine-resistant strains because that’s just how natural selection works.  You want the opposite but you can’t get there from here by vaccinating people while an outbreak is going on so the better option is to focus on early treatments and even prophylaxis which does not place immune pressure on the virus to evade your jabs.

  • Meanwhile we the evidence continues to mount that prior infection confers better resistance than vaccines.  Perfect immunity?  No.  But much better immunity and, to three nines, perfect protection against critical illness and death.

81 Research Studies Confirm Natural Immunity to COVID ‘Equal’ or ‘Superior’ to Vaccine Immunity, by Dr. Paul Elias Alexander

If you ever need to win the natural immunity argument, throw this article at your opponent. From Dr. Paul Elias Alexander at theburningplatform.com:

The Brownstone Institute lists 81 of the highest-quality, complete, most robust scientific studies and evidence reports/position statements on natural immunity as compared to the COVID-19 vaccine-induced immunity.

Public health officials and the medical establishment with the help of the politicized media are misleading the public with assertions that the COVID-19 shots provide greater protection than natural immunity.

We should not force COVID vaccines on anyone when the evidence shows that naturally acquired immunity is equal to or more robust and superior to existing vaccines. Instead, we should respect the right of the bodily integrity of individuals to decide for themselves.

Public health officials and the medical establishment with the help of the politicized media are misleading the public with assertions that the COVID-19 shots provide greater protection than natural immunity.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky, for example, was deceptive in her October 2020 published LANCET statement that “there is no evidence for lasting protective immunity to SARS-CoV-2 following natural infection” and that “the consequence of waning immunity would present a risk to vulnerable populations for the indefinite future.”

Immunology and virology 101 have taught us over a century that natural immunity confers protection against a respiratory virus’s outer coat proteins, and not just one, e.g., the SARS-CoV-2 spike glycoprotein.

Vaxxer Regime Has a Real Problem Denying Natural Immunity, by Joseph Mercola

Natural immunity is probably the only immunity that’s worth a damn, and the vaccination campaign may mess that up. From Joseph Mercola at lewrockwell.com:

During a September 30, 2021, U.S. Senate hearing, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., went head to head with Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra. Paul called out Becerra for ignoring the science of natural immunity.

Becerra, who is neither a medical doctor nor a scientist — Paul pointed out that Becerra doesn’t even have a degree in science — is traveling the country calling people “flat-earthers” for believing that if they’ve already had COVID they don’t need the vaccine, Paul said.

“We find that very insulting. It goes against the science,” Paul said. And, Paul added, Becerra is doing this in spite of an Israeli study1,2,3 of 2.5 million people that found the vaccinated group was actually seven times more likely to get infected with COVID than those with natural immunity from a previous infection.

When Becerra said he wasn’t familiar with that study and “would have to get back” to Paul on it, Paul chastised Becerra for his ignorance, saying he was making decisions for 100 million Americans who already had COVID when he isn’t even keeping up with the science.
