Any of this sound familiar…..
3.6 million people received their first dose between 5 and 6 weeks ago. Only 2.2 million became fully vaccinated in the past week. Perhaps 200-300 K received the one dose J&J and became fully vaccinated a while back (but of course this week’s # includes some who got J&J 2-3 weeks ago – probably a smaller number since vaccination rates have been declining).
Let’s be generous and assume that 2.4 million of those 3.6 million became fully vaccinated. That’s only 2/3 completing their 2nd dose 2-3 weeks ago and, therefore, becoming fully vaccinated this past week.
Yes, Dr. Frances Kelsey refused to back down on additional testing for this drug. She protected American children, now she would be black listed, target by Big Tech, and Big Pharma. I hope people can see the parallels and protect the innocent children in our country.
Ivory Hecker was the first in the media to defect and blow the whistle. I believe – there will be more. Lots more.
I mean, that’s just my sense.
Me too 🤞🙏🏻 More journalists are in fact letting their integrity shine, even if, for now, anonymously:
Working for what is essentially the propaganda unit of our government is something I am deeply ashamed of.
I have been a journalist at newspapers across the UK for 25 years and feel the industry I work in has grossly let down the public during this alleged pandemic.
To protect my position as a legacy media journalist, I am unwilling to say where I work, whom I work for, or who I am, but I am sharing these thoughts with UK Column readers to hopefully give them an insight into how and why my industry has got things so badly wrong.
For the last year I have been deeply troubled by what has been happening and would gladly quit my industry if it wasn’t for having to support my family on a good wage—but I feel like my soul is dying as a result….
…Through ignorance and a desire to make things seem as terrible as possible—in the misguided belief this would save lives—it has meant we have fanned the flames of fear and helped create the society that the government psychologists wanted, with non-compliance being the subject of social disapproval. In fact it has gone much further than that, with non-compliance avidly hated by many who do conform.
The vitriol and scorn from many of our reader comments to stories is extreme—to the extent they wish anyone breaking regulations “catch the virus and die”. These comments are sickening to read and show that much of the public has been deeply programmed by the fear propaganda and psychological manipulation that we, the press, perpetuate on behalf of our government.
There are only a very few journalists who think as I do: certainly none of the managers I work with are willing to speak up or are able to grasp that the government is not working in our best interests. Or perhaps they are motivated by their pay cheques to keep the official narrative going?
From being relatively proud of being a journalist, I have become truly disgusted with my profession and the cowardice and ignorance of several of my colleagues, and the downright propaganda appearing in the titles I work for.
There are many more good people than bad within my industry, I would like to stress, but they are clueless as to narratives outside the legacy media bubble and this is a dereliction of duty on their behalf. …
I can see some people getting a first dose and then saying, “no more.”
I can also see some people getting a first dose in order to satisfy employers. They show the vaccination card for the first shot to their boss and go back to work. But the boss never follows up after the first dose. And the employee just puts the second shot off since the employee didn’t want any shots in the first place. Eventually, the second dose just slides.
I can really see that happening.
Your reasoning is slightly off, 3.9% are within their window still so we have yet to see what comes of that. But if the 3.5% holds true, that, like you and DF have mentioned before, is probably the true adverse event rate. Which for 300 million+ doses puts the AE at about 10.5 million people. How loudly can you say “Fuck That!”
I don’t think I’m off. 55.4% with at least on dose today – 51.5 with at least one dose 5 weeks ago = 3.9% got their first dose within the past 5 weeks and therefore have not had time to receive their second dose (3 weeks) and become fully vaccinated (another 2 weeks). This 3.9% could still get their second dose on time. Although my post #11 suggests that only 2/3 of people who got their first dose 5 to 6 weeks ago followed up with their second dose 3 weeks later.
This number is very clear. The rate of second doses is currently about 2/3 the rate of lagged first doses. Maybe they’re all just on vacation and will follow up soon, maybe not.
To me, Israel is the touchstone. One of the most heavily vaccinated countries. Passports, etc. Let’s see now…
There’s been an uptick in first shots recently. It does look like the “Delta Will Kill Us All” terror campaign has pushed some new people onto the vax treadmill. But…few of the “second shot hesitant” have rushed to get jabbed a second time.
I wonder why that could be?
The Canadian “vax survey” has a 5% rate of “new health events” within 7 days post shot … lets see, how did they phrase it:
5% of people developed a new health event within 7 days of receiving their second dose that prevented daily activities/work/required a medical visit
Same number for the first shot.
Woohoo! A brand-new health event! For free, even!
And – notice it is limited to within just 7 days. After 7 days, any brand-new health event won’t count.
And – one wonders – how exactly are deaths reported in this voluntary reporting system? “Dead Men Complete No Surveys!”
Friend of mine, in Asia, reports on “health event” frequency among Sinovac-jabbed HCW friends. 100 injections, 20% breakthrough cases, 5% missed work, and 2% got a “reversible stroke.” Was this an alarming health event? Oh yeah. Turns out, the mostly-under-40 doctor-nurse group isn’t so fond of “reversible strokes.” My sense: they focus more on the word “stroke”, and less on the word “reversible.”
“That (reversible!) stroke is just a sign that the vaccine is working!”
I fully agree, and so does the German Professor Sucharit Bhakdi (Link). What I am afraid of is the politicized response and the mass psychosis.
In the Netherlands we had the same with Softenon and DES. When I referred to this during a discussion, my opponent’s reaction was one of anger; how dare I to compare this vaccine with DES and Softenon! I stopped the discussion. I was hitting a belief-system.
