The Trump COVID Vaccines: Safe and Effective? “Over a 60X increase in pro sports adverse events since the vaccines rolled out”

re: ethics in medicine

Real science is never settled, and anyone who has certainty on such things is not qualified to discuss it.

This doesn’t surprise me in the least: Over a 60X increase in pro sports adverse events since the vaccines rolled out. How about the authorities and the skeptics actually get together and start being honest with us? Because if you’re forcibly vaccinating young healthy people for nil benefit and there is even a 6X increase, then you’re a public health menace.

....

The Trump COVID vacines are seemingly incompetent at generating anything but marginal protection beyond about 3 months. If you call that “effective”, your perspective is very different from mine. I happen to think my wife’s case (3.5 months out from 2nd dose, highly symptomatic infection) is not at all unusual, and that the “COVID parties” in my town of hundreds of maskless people in close proximity are a form of psychosis (delusional assumption of safety from COVID vaccination).

If you’re in a high-risk category, it is probably the smart move to get vaccinated (Pfizer) plus a booster. I say that because all “expert” claims and data seem to show that. So I’m not going to question (yet) the high-risk scenario. But count me out on the idiocy of vaccinating young healthy people for at most 4 months protection. And don’t get me started on the evil child abuse policies (mandatory vaccinations of 5-17 year children). That is medical malpractice promulgated by expert idiots. And count me out on saying that someone with with 4 or 5 serious comorbidities as having died “from COVID”. And count me out on the crap-grade science of PCR tests and the statistical cherry picking from the CDC.

Don’t take my advice ("I am not a doctor"!), and certainly don’t decide based on the brainwashing industry ("news"). Talk to your doctor, who will gladly quote you CDC/FDA guidelines and is scared shitless about offering any actual reasoned opinion on your own personal situation. Because it might get him/her/ze/zem/fart/bart/wtf fired. Pregnant people (formerly known as "women") should take special care because you’re risking two. That’s not medical advice, just my POV.

Psychology of being vaccinated — cognitive commitments die hard

Even in my own family and in spite of my early assertions stating that it was almost certainly COVID, my wife and my daughter refused to believe it for the duration, until the positive test 10 days later. After all, she was double-vaxxed 3.5 months earlier. Protected by vaccination, so how could it be COVID? This is people living with *me*, and I do not mince words with anyone. And yet, I was disbelieved, until the positive test. Now imagine the general public, totally brainwashed by the “news” totally insulated from any other viewpoint.

Neither me nor my unvaccinated 19-year-old daughter caught COVID from my wife, even though my daughter in particular spent hours in close proximity. My daughter makes her own decisions, but I’ll be damned if I can see why anyone like her in their right mind would get vaxxed—risk with no benefit.

IMO, there is a pandemic of the vaccinated because of a cognitive commitment that infections just cannot be COVID, they must be something else. So no testing, the usual social interactions, etc. And so COVID keeps on spreading and the punitive COVID terrorism continues. Unvaxxed people like me (with natural immunity) are declared sociopath assholes by the government and the “news” because we refuse to get the vaccine that is worse than worthless to us because of our personal situations. It’s COVID terrorism at wor. Half the country loves it, and would love to punish or even imprison people with my viewpoint. Just watch the real psychotic sociopaths on CNN and similar.

No one knows what the right choice really is

If you want one predictor that will almost never fail you in life: follow the money. Whether or not behaviors are conscious or not, that maxim rarely if ever fails. Only fools and children think otherwise. Yeah, there might be rare exceptions, as with everything in life.

Did my wife make the right choice in getting vaxxed (and then getting infected)? I don’t know (and she makes her own decisions), but I also don’t know what the vaccine might have done to her, things that might show up for 2/3/4/5 years, and kill her prematurely. No one on the earth can say it won’t happen. And we have eliminated the control groups, so Big Pharma can deny harm till the end of time.

Only an idiot or a partisan can accept a risk assessment that fails to consider properly the risks (known and unknown) coupled with effectiveness of unprecedented short duration benefit for a vaccine. When that calculus is done objectively in taking the short-term protection into account vs all known and unknown risk, the risk assessment becomes sketchy, at least for the healthy and young. Butcount on the CDC/FDA to not do the risk assessment objectively. Which is not a statement against vaccination for many high-risk individuals, as noted above.

Gaming the system —  gravy train for Big Pharma, forever

The emerging scientific truth is that the COVID vaccines have very short efficacy, that Big Pharma gamed the system by quoting efficacy based on a proxy endpoint (antibodies, unproven in effectiveness), and after only 2 months, which is the peak that things fall-off from. It’s like buying a used car that runs OK for 2 months (a rare few of them explode and kill you), then within a few months it doesn’t even start anymore. That’s what all the science is showing, and why the “boosters forever” messaging is starting.

But there is a catch, and it stems from the  “follow the money” principle in light of emerging highly effective medications to treat COVID. Expect to see the messaging change from “get your ass vaccinated, you sociopath asshole!” to “vaccination is still best, but COVID is treatable with our expensive new drugs. Because “follow the money” means it MUST change that way. We might even see vaccines just fade away because expensive drugs are much more profitable. Check back in a year on that point.

PS: Did you know that the “news” gets the bulk of its profits from Big Pharma? Imagine what that does to honest reporting. Add in the revolving door from Big Pharma to CDC/FDA, and the results are predictable.

Vaccines are harmless?

Thanks to reader Staale S for this compilation.

Everyone knows that young exceptionally fit athletes in the 18-25 range are ripe for death and disease out of the blue.

It is fair to show this listing, given the “news” coming up with daily propaganda of “if only I had gotten vaccinated” just about every day. Science and data are like water off a duck’s back for the public, but anecodotes are highly persuasive.

But are all these anecdotal cases truly just coincidence having nothing to do with being vaxxed? I’d bet on tip of the iceberg.
