Dear KMAG: 20200724 Open Topic / Vaccine News / Vaccine Horse Race / Vaccine Evolution / Vaccine Conservatism

This [(Q+7)=24]TH of JULY FRIDAY open thread is OPENVERY OPEN – a place for everybody to post whatever they feel they would like to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA / KAG! / KMAG world (KMAG being a bit of both MAGA and KAG!).


Start HERE.


You can say what you want, comment on what other people said, and so on.

Free Speech is practiced here. ENJOY IT. Use it or lose it.

Keep it SOMEWHAT civil. They tried to FORCE fake Orwellian civility on us. In response, we CHOOSE true civility to defend our precious FREEDOM from THEM.

Our rules began with the civility of the Old Treehouse, later to become the Wolverinian Empire, and one might say that we have RESTORED THE OLD REPUBLIC – the early high-interaction model of the Treehouse – except of course that Q discussion is not only allowed but encouraged, and speech is considerably freer in other ways. Please feel free to argue and disagree with the board owner, as nicely as possible.

Please also consider the Important Guidelines, outlined here in the OLD January 1st , 2019 open thread. Let’s not give the odious Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven.


SPEAK THE FIVE WORDS BOLDLY TO OUR PRESIDENT!

I AM PRAYING FOR YOU!


AND WHAT TIME IS IT?

TIME TO….

DRAIN THE SWAMP

Our movement

Is about replacing

A failed

And CORRUPT

Political establishment

With a new government controlled

By you, the American People.

Candidate Donald J. Trump

Also remember Wheatie’s Rules:

Vaccine News

I started off above with THIS NEWS…..

For many of you, I can safely predict that this does NOT feel like “good news” to you. For others, it does feel like good news, but perhaps YOU are dreading being positive about vaccines in a movement which is largely skeptical of them.

MY MISSION is to make you ALL welcome this news, because you will FEAR NO TRUTHS.

To do this, I’m going to take you on a LONG JOURNEY to answer one question – Is Wolf going to take THIS VACCINE if it makes it to production?

Are you ready to go? Here is your first BRAVERY KICK. Repeat after me…..

“I shall FEAR NO TRUTHS!”

Are you ready to go? GOOD!


The first thing I noticed is that Seb Gorka – Q DENIER – is using the same GENERIC COVID-19 VACCINE IMAGE that measly Q blogger Wolf Moon uses all the time.

I downloaded this sucker back in APRIL, and used the original web URL in a lot of comments.

JUST SAYIN’. Gorka ain’t GOD. He’s just a small human in MAGA, just like the rest of us. He has to scrape images just like the rest of us.

Feel that FEAR slipping away?

GOOD.

Now – remember – POTUS is ALL-IN on developing a vaccine – and QUICKLY.

JUST SAYIN’.

Don’t fear it. UNDERSTAND IT.

By the time we are done here, you will be able to OPINE SMARTLY about what POTUS is doing here, no matter what your personal view of vaccines – either for yourself or for others.

Let’s look more deeply at Seb Gorka’s article:

BREAKING NEWS: U.S. Secures 100 Million Doses of Coronavirus Vaccine from Pfizer

LINK: https://www.sebgorka.com/breaking-news-u-s-secures-100-million-doses-of-coronavirus-vaccine-from-pfizer/

The United States government has secured a $2 billion deal for 100 million doses of a promising experimental Coronavirus vaccine being developed by the U.S.-based pharmaceutical company Pfizer and the German company BioNTech.

The two companies, which are producing the vaccine together, said that the doses will be provided to America if they prove “safe and effective in humans.” The Department of Health and Human Services confirmed that as a result of the government’s purchase, the vaccines would come at “no cost” to Americans seeking the vaccine once it’s available.

This is the latest vaccine candidate to be secured for the United States as a result of President Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed,” aimed at expediting the possible cure and eventual eradication of the Chinese virus. Other companies developing possible vaccines that have been enlisted by the government include Novavax, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Emergent Biosolutions.

Sebastian Gorka, https://www.sebgorka.com/breaking-news-u-s-secures-100-million-doses-of-coronavirus-vaccine-from-pfizer/

Here are the KEY POINTS you want to remember as we DIG DEEPER…..

  • deal is for enough doses to use (at least in the short-term) on PART of American populace – NOT ALL – although eventually there will be more than enough (see below)
  • it’s considered promising according to the TRUMP administration
  • vaccine is by US and German companies – NOT a Chinese vaccine
  • the US company is Pfizer – a key identifier along with BioNTech
  • conditioned on the vaccine being safe and effective IN HUMANS
  • part of Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed”
  • goal is CURE and EVENTUAL ERADICATION
  • staying on message – it’s the CHINESE virus
  • OTHER vaccines and makers have been enlisted by the government
    • Novavax
    • Johnson & Johnson
    • Moderna
    • AstraZeneca
    • Emergent Biosolutions

You will note that there is a LINK – and basically what we have here is RE-REPORTING of CNBC.

LINK: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/07/22/us-government-taps-pfizer-to-produce-millions-of-doses-of-coronavirus-vaccine.html

So let’s GO THERE! Here is CNBC:

U.S. agrees to pay Pfizer and BioNTech $2 billion for 100 million doses of coronavirus vaccine

PUBLISHED WED, JUL 22 2020
7:16 AM EDT
UPDATED 24 MIN AGO
Will Feuer @WILLFOIA

According to the author, there are 3 key points:

  • Under the agreement, the U.S. will get 100 million doses of the vaccine, if it works, and can acquire 500 million additional doses if needed.
  • German biotech firm BioNTech and U.S.-based Pfizer are jointly developing the vaccine.
  • HHS said Americans won’t have to pay for it. 

Now – here are MY additional key points:

  • Pfizer and BioNTech are actually running FOUR different vaccines – any of them that wins may be the one that “succeeds” in this deal
  • A 30K participant trial of the/a Pfizer vaccine is expected to begin later this month (July 2020)
  • The most advanced candidate is called BNT162b1
  • Candidate BNT162b1 has been demonstrated to produce neutralizing antibodies in clinical trials
  • The article EXPLAINS the logic behind the Trump-Pence (Pence is my addition here) “Operation Warp Speed
    • multiple companies pushed to increase the odds of a WINNER, SOONER
    • goal is ENOUGH VACCINE FOR ALL AMERICANS [not saying mandatory – just saying]
    • logistics assumes success and builds supply chains and SCALE while researching
    • note that this is kinda how the Manhattan Project worked
    • this is just the latest vaccine effort to get a federal green light
      • Novavax vaccine was similarly green-lighted at 1.6 billion dollars
      • Johnson & Johnson green-lighted at 0.456 billon
      • Moderna green-lighted at 0.486 billion
      • Astra-Zeneca / Oxford green-lighted at 1.2 billion
      • Emergent Biosolutions green-lighted at 0.628 billion

The explanation of “Operation Warp Speed” is useful, so you don’t have to be AFRAID of talking about it and being mocked by Democrats, should you use the somewhat corny name. It’s like many of Trump’s simple but extremely sound ideas. The names are almost like gatekeepers that turn away mockers, reflexive haters, and other people of “bad faith”, but those of good faith are invited in to get in early on the winning team.

Yeah, I smell PENCE all over that. A genius hire, to do exactly this strategy.

Here is Azar talking:

“This is what’s really unprecedented with President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed. We are literally making the commercial scale vaccine now as we’re going through the clinical trial,” Azar told CNBC. “We’re doing that at risk, using the full power of the U.S. government and our financial resources to do that. No one’s ever done this before.”

Vaccine manufacturers like Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and others have been ramping up manufacturing capacity before their vaccine’s have been proven to be safe and effective and before receiving regulatory approval. That will help shave months off the time it takes to ultimately distribute a vaccine across the globe.

“We’ve been committed to making the impossible possible by working tirelessly to develop and produce in record time a safe and effective vaccine to help bring an end to this global health crisis,” Dr. Albert Bourla, chairman and CEO of Pfizer, said in a statement. “We made the early decision to begin clinical work and large-scale manufacturing at our own risk to ensure that product would be available immediately if our clinical trials prove successful and an Emergency Use Authorization is granted.”

Developing a safe and effective vaccine is seen as crucial to curbing the spread of the coronavirus, which has infected more than 14.9 million people around the world and killed at least 617,200 people, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

While the companies and government race to deliver a successful vaccine, regulators and company officials have assured the public and members of Congress that they will not sacrifice on safety. All that’s at risk, they say, is money. 

A very interesting concept – risk the money on any failed vaccines as far as premature commercialization, but END the “threat” sooner and win big on rebounding the ECONOMY.

THAT RIGHT THERE sounds like classic Trumpian “manage the downside to win” thinking.

NOW – let’s dig DEEPER STILL.

Why is Trump throwing the BIGGEST CHUNK OF CASH YET at this particular vaccine?

In my opinion, it is because this vaccine is showing itself to be SAFE AND EFFECTIVE already, despite being one of the “newer” technologies.

To see this, we need to go to a couple of LINKS in the last article.

First, some prior recent reporting by CNBC – clearly enough time (3 weeks) for the $2B to show up.

LINK: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/07/01/pfizer-stock-jumps-after-it-reports-positive-data-in-early-stage-coronavirus-vaccine-trial.html

Pfizer stock jumps after it reports positive data in early stage coronavirus vaccine trial

@BERKELEYJR

Here are the key points, per CNBC:

  • Pfizer shares jumped after it released positive results from its closely watched early stage human trial on a coronavirus vaccine. 
  • The trial evaluated 45 people. Each participant received 10, 30 or 100 microgram doses of the vaccine or a placebo. 
  • Pfizer said the vaccine was generally well tolerated, though the experimental vaccine also caused fever in some patients, especially for those who were in the 100 microgram group.

Here are my added key points:

  • ONE of the four candidates produced neutralizing antibodies. YES. Just one of them.
  • levels of neutralizing antibodies were 1.8 to 2.8 times higher than in recovered COVID-19 patients
  • after 28 days, all participants at the lower (and safer) 10 and 30 microgram dosages had significant levels of binding antibodies
  • all four candidates are based on mRNA technology
  • reactions to the vaccine were milder than, e.g., the Moderna vaccine (*my* reading)
  • reactions were primarily FEVER and injection site pain, with fever being more common in the 100 microgram group
  • MOST patients reported injection site pain, mild to moderate, but it was SEVERE in one case at 100 micrograms
  • looks to me that they will shoot for 10 or 30 micrograms, depending upon durability of immunity granted by those doses
  • 100 million doses could be ready by the end of 2020
  • 1.2 BILLION doses could be ready by the end of 2021

Next, we follow two PRESS RELEASES from Pfizer and BioNTech:

LINK 1: https://investors.pfizer.com/investor-news/press-release-details/2020/Pfizer-and-BioNTech-Announce-an-Agreement-with-U.S.-Government-for-up-to-600-Million-Doses-of-mRNA-based-Vaccine-Candidate-Against-SARS-CoV-2/default.aspx

LINK 2: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20200722005438/en/

Here is the MONEY QUOTE on RESULTS:

The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine development program is evaluating at least four experimental vaccines, each of which represents a unique combination of messenger RNA (mRNA) format and target antigen. On July 1st, Pfizer and BioNTech announced preliminary data from BNT162b1, the most advanced of the four mRNA formulations. The early data demonstrates that BNT162b1 is able to produce neutralizing antibodies in humans at or above the levels observed in the plasma from patients who have recovered from COVID-19, and this was shown at relatively low dose levels. Local reactions and systemic events were dose-dependent, generally mild to moderate, and transient. No serious adverse events were reported. On July 20th, the companies announced early positive update from German Phase 1/2 COVID-19 vaccine study, including first T Cell response data.

SO – we have an mRNA vaccine which appears to be – compared to other vaccines we’ve been hearing about – relatively safe and effective. NO SERIOUS ADVERSE EVENTS.

But YES – this vaccine is the NEW and somewhat unproven DNA/RNA vaccine tech.

So how do we JUDGE IT?

In my opinion, we first need to take a look at ALL the leading COVID-19 vaccines.


Vaccine Horse Race

The horrible China-Puppet WHO does have one redeeming feature – BUREAUCRATS KEEPING TRACK OF THINGS.

This URL is always a good place to go, to see where vaccines stand. Yeah, China and Bill Gates probably get to track the downloads, and maybe even infect the PDF file, but whatever.

That’s what I’m here for – to turn that nasty PDF into nice, safe, images.

LINK: https://www.who.int/publications/m/item/draft-landscape-of-covid-19-candidate-vaccines

Let’s look at the FIRST TWO PAGES of the document they produce, keeping track of COVID-19 vaccine candidates.

What can we GLEAN from this stuff?

We can’t FULLY understand this yet, but we WILL in a few minutes. For now, we can mostly understand the THIRD COLUMN – who is behind which particular vaccine.

The vaccines are ORDERED in terms of how advanced the RESEARCH is – in particular, how far along the CLINICAL TRIALS are. The TOP TWO DOZEN entries (#1 to #24) are all the vaccines in CLINICAL TRIALS. #1 is the most advanced – which right now means PHASE 3 trials. The least advanced (#24) will only be in initial PHASE 1 trials.

So GUESS WHO IS AT THE TOP? (Look in the 3rd column for the developer…)

CHYYYNNAA!

Yeah, boy howdy, that sure is a surprise! The top three entries are all CHINA!

*eyeroll*

Then, number FOUR is the Astra-Zeneca / Oxford vaccine.

Then, numbers FIVE and SIX are CHYYYNNAA again!!! Think of that – the top 6 vaccines in terms of advancement, and CHYYYNNAA has FIVE of them. I guess that’s what happens when YOU RELEASE THE VIRUS.

SICK.

The next two are Western – Moderna and Inovio. Both of these have gotten a lot of press, not all of it good.

Moderna (#7) made the news b/c it came out with glowing statements about trials, but the fine print uncovered in the next few days was lots of serious side effects. What followed was a journalist pile-on, with lots of talk that Moderna has no experience, is stiff-arming the feds on safety, and is hyping more than fixing stuff. Very “Obama”.

Inovio (#8) is a DNA vaccine, similar to the mRNA vaccines. Look in the FIRST COLUMN under “Platform” to see the type. You don’t have to understand the platform quite yet. The Inovio vaccine was one of the first COVID-19 vaccines to get a lot of public attention, and is backed by Bill Gates and CEPI, as are MANY of the others. Gates is behind most of the horses in the race, so that he CANNOT LOSE.

Ask WHY.

Numbers 9, 10 and 11 are also DNA vaccines, with #9 being a Japanese effort.

Then come two more standard vaccines, Indian (#12) and Chinese (#13), leading off on the SECOND image / second page above.

Finally, at #14, we get to Novavax, which is the vaccine I like for myself, provided that it’s ever proven safe and effective (and useful) in people who’ve already had the disease. WHY I like it for ME, however, requires some explanation, but not yet – let’s keep looking at the list.

Skip over #15, the Turtlehead vaccine (made you curious, didn’t I?), which is also a vaccine that I am PERSONALLY potentially favorable toward. Seriously, it’s just a KY company (Kentucky Bioprocessing), and KY is in USA. But it is also a technology I favor as likely to be SAFE.

FINALLY, at #16, we get to the Pfizer vaccine. This is the one in question. Am I going to take it?

Not going to answer that yet!

Of the remaining entries, I’m liking FOR MYSELF numbers 18, 19, and 20, which include the GSK effort (#18) and the University of Queensland vaccine (#20), both in the news occasionally.

Of the last 4 entries, 21-24, thereby rounding out the TWO DOZEN vaccines in CLINICAL TRIALS, #21 is the Imperial College vaccine often in the news, and #23 is the CHINESE ARMY (PLA) entry – an mRNA vaccine, which IMO is likely to be STOLEN TECH.

So – HOW DO WE JUDGE?

WELL – before we can really judge, it helps if we understand certain basics of vaccines.

Let me provide you with something VERY AWESOME that I found online.


Vaccine Evolution

Vaccines, like everything else in Creation, are EVOLVING INTELLIGENTLY.

We just have to make sure that they’re EVOLVING HONESTLY.

That’s where it gets tricky. But first, we have to understand the basics of how vaccines WORK – hopefully WITH the immune system, INTELLIGENTLY AND HONESTLY.

Vaccines as we now know them are designed to trigger the immune system into THINKING we have a disease, when we don’t really have it, so that when we would otherwise get the disease, we are already prepared for it, and fight it off. This is a very smart idea which has TRACKED human civilization.

Smallpox is the disease which taught us about vaccination. Before the term “vaccination” was generalized to its current state of “inducing immunity to a disease by prior and safer activation the immune system”, “vaccination” meant inoculation (intentional INFECTION) with cowpox or a relative, as a DEFENSE against smallpox. Vaccination was EXCLUSIVELY a smallpox therapy. Very interestingly, the OLDER, more dangerous practice of infection with heat-and-time-weakened smallpox virus was KNOWN by empirical observation, and dated back to at least the Middle Ages in China. That practice was called “variolation”.

Thus, cowpox cross-immunity to protect against smallpox was a LUCKY BREAK. Most diseases don’t HAVE a nearly harmless cowpox version of “whatever” to protect you from real “whatever”.

Thus, what “vaccines” are doing NOW is much more akin to the OLDER and MORE DANGEROUS practice of variolation – a form of inoculation – intentional infection with the very “something” you are afraid of – preferably something which has been tinkered with in some way so that it no longer kills you.

Inoculation is POWERFUL because it’s more generalizable, but it’s RISKY because it makes US responsible for SAFETY.

You know – if we were more honest, we’d call vaccines something else, like “variolines”, or maybe “inoculums”, or – OH YEAH – inoculations.

I know this is actually very simple, but I want to CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE on “vaccines”.

I want you to be not just INFORMED, which can be DISINFORMED, but to have real and deep UNDERSTANDING, which CANNOT be disinformed as easily.

Read the last three sentences of the above Wikipedia entry for “Variolation” to understand “what cannot be said in science” right now.

The method is no longer used today. It was replaced by smallpox vaccine, a safer alternative. This in turn led to the development of the many vaccines now available against other diseases.

See the trick? It’s a kind of “circle of changed meanings”, so beloved by lying Democrats. The potentially dangerous and generally iffy WOLF/SHEEPDOG of “inoculation” borrowed the sheepskin of the “safer alternative” vaccination to claim false but reassuring safety for what is really the tricky business that could be called “generalized variolation”.

We got LUCKY on smallpox, and now pretend that the same luck-magic can be extended to all diseases. HA! GET REAL, SCIENCE.

The reality is that the term “vaccines” is historical euphemism.

Read the history of smallpox to GROUND YOURSELF in REALITY.

SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_smallpox

AND: https://www.cdc.gov/smallpox/history/history.html

AND: https://arstechnica.com/science/2020/07/scientists-traced-origin-of-smallpox-vaccine-strains-used-during-civil-war/

Well, vaccines are now a much BROADER science. They are, basically, “tinkering with the immune system to do stuff” – and that includes STERILIZING PEOPLE by induction of auto-immune attack on their reproductive platform. One person’s nasty side effect is another person’s depopulationist panacea.

Have you ever considered WHY we’re not supposed to think about vaccine side-effects? It’s because “SIDE” depends upon your perspective.

“WHAT WE DO NOT EVEN THINK POSSIBLE, WE CANNOT SUSPECT.”

Yes, THAT is how big vaccines are, now. We can actually immunize people against PARENTHOOD.

SO – if you don’t understand vaccines, you are at the mercy of those who do. Be GLAD that the Hitler regime didn’t have sterilization vaccines.

Be CONCERNED that the CHINAZIS have them RIGHT NOW. They could sterilize ALL of the Uighurs and just move the HAN SUPREMACISTS right in.

Y’all see what I’m sayin’?

Why, with all the Uighur men gone, they could be sterilizing all the women – or all the men – right now – with just a SHOT OR TWO. Wait a minute. Somebody reported “medical experimentation” in those Uighur reeducation camps. Hmmmmmmm.

But let’s leave THAT for another time. My point is this – vaccines are a very BROAD topic. For now, let’s stick to “current ways to potentially fight coronaviruses by prior immunization”.


In that regard, I recently found a wonderful blog post which explains the different TYPES of vaccines being considered for COVID-19. This is an excellent article.

Classic and new technologies vying to be the first COVID-19 vaccine

Jeffrey Smoot
Information Scientist, CAS
Posted June 11, 2020

I could not have put together such a GREAT and SHORT summary of the different vaccine techs if I had spent years doing it.

PLEASE READ THE ARTICLE LINKED ABOVE! It’s actually a VERY fast read!

Now let’s look at the critical TABLE 1, which I’m quoting “vertically” and editorializing somewhat, based on a “monster” metaphor.

The table entries are unmolested. The entry titles reflect – somewhat humorously – my relative levels of trust/distrust of the technologies involved, and their state of readiness for “prime time” – expressed as effectiveness against “theoretical” pathogens.

Table 1. Vaccine Classification


Header Definitions (How to Read Table)

Type — What basic kind of vaccine

Active Component — may be abbreviation or acronym – GOOGLE IT!!!

Advantage — why you might trust this platform

Disadvantage — why you might NOT trust this platform

Vaccine Example — actual uses in existing vaccines you may or may not like


Bitten By Chocula

Type — Live, attenuated

Active Component — Pathogen capable of replication

Advantage — Strong and long-lasting immune response, usually lifetime protection

Disadvantage — Risk of disease

Vaccine Example — Tuberculosis, MMR, smallpox, chickenpox, yellow fever


Carry A Wooden Stake

Type — Inactivated (or killed)

Active Component — Pathogen chemical or heat treated to prevent replication

Advantage — No risk of disease

Disadvantage — Lesser immune response;  booster shots may be needed

Vaccine Example — Flu, hepatitis A, polio, rabies


Silver Bullets

Type — Subunit (protein, polysaccharide, conjugate, toxoid)

Active Component — Portions of a pathogen

Advantage — No risk of disease

Disadvantage — Booster shot often needed

Vaccine Example — Hepatitis B, HPV, whooping cough, shingles, meningococcal disease, pneumococcal disease, diphtheria, tetanus


Shiny Silver Bullets

Type — VLP

Active Component — Outer coat of virus

Advantage — No risk of disease

Disadvantage — [none mentioned – surely there are some – W]

Vaccine Example — Hepatitis B, cervical cancer, malaria


Bitten By Frankenberry

Type — Recombinant vector vaccine

Active Component — Non-pathogenic virus or bacteria as carrier of immunogen of interest

Advantage — Reusable for diverse antigens; no risk of disease

Disadvantage — Pre-existing or development of immunity to vector

Vaccine Example — No approved vaccine available


Chocula Goes Back In Time And Marries Your Mom

Type — DNA vaccine

Active Component — Plasmid or other expression vector

Advantage — Fast to produce; no risk of disease; reusable technology

Disadvantage — Lack of data

Vaccine Example — Veterinary medicine (canine melanoma, infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus of fish, equine West Nile virus)


Chocula Commits Identity Theft On Your Mom

Type — mRNA vaccine

Active Component — RNA that encodes a disease-specific pathogen protein

Advantage — Fast to produce; no risk of disease; reusable technology

Disadvantage — Effectiveness and side effects are unknown

Vaccine Example — No approved vaccine available


This is a great chart because it orders things from “oldest” to newest in terms of general technology.

First live virus (weakened smallpox, cowpox, vaccinia), then dead virus, then specific fragments, then fake Frankenstein live virus, and finally the new fake “like a virus” DNA and RNA mucking around science.

READ THE LINK – each type is explained.

Let me review the different PLATFORMS (column 1) in the pages of the WHO document. These correspond to most of the types in the linked blog post.

  • Inactivated
  • Non-Replicating Viral Vector
  • Protein Subunit
  • RNA
  • DNA
  • VLP

These methods can basically be broken into two different sets of two categories each:

  • OLD-SCHOOL versus NEW-SCHOOL
  • IMMUNOGEN versus INSTRUCTIONS

Old-school methods are “old biology” – no recombinants, no gene sequencing, no plasmids, no fancy tricks.

New-school methods use our advanced knowledge of biochemistry to MAKE STUFF at the molecular and biochemical level, either before injection or after injection.

Immunogen methods inject the stuff that triggers the immune reaction.

Instruction methods inject DNA or RNA – pretty much like a VIRUS does – maybe even USING a virus, or an artificial virus-like construct – to get those instructions into your cells.

So now let me apply those labels to the platforms, including one that’s missing (live /attenuated).

  • Live / Attenuated – OLD-SCHOOL INSTRUCTIONS
  • Inactivated – OLD-SCHOOL IMMUNOGEN
  • Non-Replicating Viral Vector – NEW SCHOOL INSTRUCTIONS
  • Protein Subunit – NEW-SCHOOL IMMUNOGEN
  • RNA – NEW-SCHOOL INSTRUCTIONS
  • DNA – NEW-SCHOOL INSTRUCTIONS
  • VLP – NEW-SCHOOL IMMUNOGEN

You see? There’s actually a lot of choice.

So – what should you trust?

THAT is for you to decide. I can only tell you what *I* trust. And WHY.


Vaccine Conservatism

I am generally – PERSONALLY – favorable toward vaccines, despite being 100% opposed to mandatory vaccinations. Vaccines ave always been good for me. Even the occasional minor aggravation of very mild arthritis in my injection shoulder is not really enough of a negative for me to skip the flu shot.

Nevertheless, I am careful to note that vaccines give me just as many and just as strong minor, negative side effects as any drug – and MOST drugs have minor side-effects that I can observe and report.

The new shingles vaccine, in my case, had stronger side effects than almost ANY drug I had ever taken. Nevertheless, a BARGAIN next to the HORROR OF SHINGLES.

Wolf’s Hot Date With Retrosynthetic Dinopox

Wolf’s Chill Second Date With Retrosynthetic Dinopox

So I’m no fool – vaccines are REAL medicine – with real side effects. AND – if you’ve gotten the new shingles vaccine, then you know that vaccines are getting STRONGER so they can work STRONGER and LONGER.

HOWEVER…..

The entire CHINA VIRUS psy-op and election interference program has done nothing to make me any less suspicious of vaccines. Indeed, it has made me MORE suspicious, if not an actual skeptic. Too many agendas. Too many lies. Too many “whoops”. Too many cute abuses of science. Too many media hit jobs. Too much Bill Gates near any and all of the above.

And CHYYYNNAA through and through the whole nasty affair. China, the home of CCP ChiNazis who love to BLAME THE VICTIM.

And which CHINAZIS could easily be STERILIZING UIGHURS with STOLEN GSK vaccine technology RIGHT NOW.

Suspicious? HELL YES!

On the bright side, I would not have been made aware of mankind’s current capabilities for eugenocide, had I not been “awakened” on vaccines, so I consider my new suspicions a stroke of good luck for any and all groups which HAVE BEEN, ARE BEING, or WILL EVER BE slated for GENOCIDE.

Uighurs! WATCH YOUR SIX!!!

One of the reasons Epstein was schmoozing all the big brains in science was – I am convinced – keeping track of the infinite bad possibilities that led to “Never Again”. SO *** DING DING DING *** I sure hope THAT particular baby didn’t get thrown out with the dirty pedophile’s bathwater. How the “this time we won’t fail” time-bomb of sterilization vaccines could have proceeded to where it is without being disarmed tells me somebody was fooling somebody. TSK-TSK. Shame on EVERYBODY.

ANYWAY – back to topic.

I think you could call me a VACCINE CONSERVATIVE.

I am not necessarily averse to any class of vaccine as I categorize them, or as others categorize them. I could take a new-school vaccine. I could take an old-school vaccine. I might take ANY of them, including the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, provided the following:

  • vaccine has been found safe and effective to TRUMP’S satisfaction
  • vaccine has been TESTED and found safe and effective for people who have already had either COVID-19 or any other weak coronavirus
  • vanishingly small number of cases of super-serious side effects
  • basic technology has no critical theoretical weaknesses
  • proven to NOT result in immune enhancement phenomenon
  • basic technology must show LIFETIME SAFETY in individuals and their children, or be able to rule out dangers – INCLUDING STERILITY in both generations – to my satisfaction

The LAST requirement is the one which, right now, makes several of the “new-school” technologies very likely NO-GO ZONES for THE WOLF. Much SHADE is thus cast on DNA, RNA, and viral vector types.

And as for the Pfizer vaccine (mRNA), I am much likelier to pick a DIFFERENT vaccine, particularly a NEW-SCHOOL recombinant protein subunit, neo-classical vaccine – much like the shingles vaccine I just took. Novavax is one of those vaccines. If it can be proven NOT to produce immune enhancement, AND it can be proven to be safe for symptomatic COVID-19 recoverees with lung damage, then I’m very likely to take it.

DNA vaccines, mRNA vaccines, and adenovirus vectors are ALL too new and unproven for me to trust. Some of these – maybe all of them – are relying on retreaded edge tech from earlier gene therapy failures.

These platforms MIGHT NOT cause cancer 50 years down the road, or cause sterility, or cause disease in CHILDREN of recipients. But the fact is simple – WE DON’T KNOW YET.

Remember DES?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diethylstilbestrol

Now – if I was 70 years old, I would probably take the very first safe and effective DNA or mRNA vaccine to come to market, not expecting to live to 120, or to have any more kids. But that’s not the case. I’d love a few more decades. If I had a choice – AND I DO HAVE ONE – I’d prefer a more time-trusted technology like protein subunits. Most of all, I would trust a vaccine that got green-lighted by Dr. Peter Hotez of Baylor University, an expert on immune enhancement in coronaviruses.

Adenovirus vectors? They already have “issues” of several kinds, including recipients either having or developing immunity to the platform itself. Perhaps not insurmountable, but there are other problems. For instance, we know that viruses have LIFELONG SIDE-EFFECTS. We’ve had decades to discover most of the important natural ones. AND – very disturbingly – we have a government health bureaucracy prominently led for years by a guy (Fauci) who not only forgot about HCQ and chloroquine – very economically conveniently for his vaccine and new therapeutic interests – he figured that the best way to deal with the inconvenient class of “slow, obscure, cancer-causing viruses” was to KICK THE PRIMARY RESEARCHER OF THEM OUT OF NIH.

Sorry – I would like to try these fascinating but risky modern vaccine platforms AFTER they have been checked and re-checked by a POST-FAUCI NIH/CDC/ETC.

And that doesn’t even begin to address this very important question. WHO IS MONITORING VACCINES to make sure that nobody is sneaking in sterility vaccine components? Components that were likely ALREADY TESTED IN AFRICA?

Is the Catholic Church even AWARE of the danger? WHERE is Pope Epstein-Guevara on this one? WITH the depopulationists? Happy to see humanity sterilized by the United Nations, as long as the “grave danger” of climate change is badly addressed?

Sorry. I’m not ready for any “mandatory” vaccine. Just on principle.

SO – you have a lot of choices in future COVID-19 vaccines, ranging from “none” to “any”.

I’m not going to tell you what to think or do.

But I hope that by addressing this issue for myself, I’ve given you some things to think about – so that your chosen position on vaccines will not merely be INFORMED, but FILLED WITH UNDERSTANDING.

And with that, I bid you GOOD HEALTH!

Remember when we could trust vaccines? We’re ONE election from heading back there.

      Actually, when a state entity prohibits or allows speech based on content, its a 1st Amendment violation. By definition, that is a ‘federal issue’.

      NYC can choose to allow no one paints murals or anyone can paint a mural. That is state’s rights. But they must be content neutral.

  5. TECHNICALLY, I shared this earlier, but it was inside a long post and may have been missed.

    This video talks about why tests that are OVERSENSITIVE are not giving us actionable information, and that 50% sensitive tests are better for determining risk (like the Abbott test).

    This is important insight into those “test” numbers…

    Coronavirus Pandemic Update 98: At Home COVID-19 Testing – A Possible Breakthrough

    People are thinking a lot about whether it is safe for kids to get back to school. One way we can get a better picture of whether it is safe is through accurate testing that indicates whether a person has COVID-19 at levels that are transmissible.

    MedCram does good job explaining how test sensitivity is measured – and how some tests are over-sensitive (high Ct values), returning positives for COVID-19 patients that are past their infectivity. This results in some confusion about sensitivity: Having a sensitivity of 50% doesn’t mean that it is a random 50%; it is a smaller area under the curve meaning that it just needs a higher viral load to detect the virus. Since the virus replicates at a tremendous rate, if you actually have the virus and test negative it will only be a matter of hours before the paper test will be able to detect the virus.

    Good insight to have before rushing to draw conclusions about the findings of COVID-19 test results: The real question is not viral positivity, but whether you are infective. This may be a way potentially to get out and get kids back to school, which is obviously the ideal situation.

    I would like to see the schools open — open 100 percent. And we’ll do it safely; we’ll do it carefully.

    President Donald J. Trump

    ENCOURAGING SCHOOLS TO REOPEN SAFELY: President Donald J. Trump is taking action to ensure schools safely reopen in the fall and empower parents to make decisions about their children’s education.

    President Trump is calling for legislation to ensure that schools have the funding and incentives they need to safely reopen this fall and to empower families with school choice.

    To encourage schools to make in-person classes available this fall, the President is requesting $105 billion in education funding as part of the next coronavirus relief bill—$70 billion of which will directly support K-12 education.

    Approximately $35 billion of the $70 billion will be reserved for schools that reopen.*

  16. Sterilization of the women.

    THE WORLD’S MOST TECHNOLOGICALLY SOPHISTICATED GENOCIDE IS HAPPENING IN XINJIANG
    Post 10067238 3 hours ago • View on 8kun

    Two recent disturbing events may finally awaken the world to the scale and horror of the atrocities being committed against the Uighurs, a mostly secular Muslim ethnic minority, in Xinjiang, China. One is an authoritative report documenting the systematic sterilization of Uighur women. The other was the seizure by U.S. Customs and Border Protection of 13 tons of products made from human hair suspected of being forcibly removed from Uighurs imprisoned in concentration camps. Both events evoke chilling parallels to past atrocities elsewhere, forced sterilization of minorities, disabled, and Indigenous people, and the image of the glass display of mountains of hair preserved at Auschwitz.

    The Genocide Convention, to which China is a signatory, defines genocide as specific acts against members of a group with the intent to destroy that group in whole or in part. These acts include (a) killing; (b) causing serious bodily or mental harm; (c) deliberately inflicting conditions of life to bring about the group’s physical destruction; (d) imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; and (e) forcibly transferring children of the group to another group. Any one of these categories constitutes genocide. The overwhelming evidence of the Chinese government’s deliberate and systematic campaign to destroy the Uighur people clearly meets each of these categories.

    Over a million Turkic Uighurs are detained in concentration camps, prisons, and forced labor factories in China. Detainees are subject to military-style discipline, thought transformation, and forced confessions. They are abused, tortured, raped, and even killed. Survivors report being subjected to electrocution, waterboarding, repeated beatings, stress positions, and injections of unknown substances. These mass detention camps are designed to cause serious physical, psychological harm and mentally break the Uighur people. The repeated government orders to “break their lineage, break their roots, break their connections, and break their origins”; “round up everyone who should be rounded up”; and systematically prevent Uighur births demonstrate a clear intent to eradicate the Uighur people as a whole.

    Judge rules Seattle media companies must hand over unpublished protest images to police

    Five news outlets, including The Seattle Times, will have to comply with a subpoena and give the Seattle Police Department unpublished video and photos from a May 30 racial justice protest that turned violent, a judge ruled Thursday.

    King County Superior Court Judge Nelson Lee sided with the Police Department in a morning hearing, ruling that its subpoena was enforceable. He found that the photos and video were critical for an investigation into the alleged arson of SPD vehicles and theft of police guns.

    Lee said the news organizations were not protected by a Washington state shield law that under many circumstances prevents authorities from obtaining reporters’ unpublished materials.

    The judge placed some limits on the subpoena. He said police could use the images to identify suspects only in the arson and gun theft investigations. Detectives could not use the photos or video to pursue suspects in vandalism or other lesser crimes — even if police found such evidence.

    The subpoena would also be limited to professional camera equipment and would exclude reporters’ cell phone photos and videos.

    The Seattle Times and TV stations KIRO 7, KING 5, KOMO 4 and KCPQ 13 were all subpoenaed.

    Lee ruled that the SPD had met its burden to overcome the shield law: that the images were “highly material and relevant” and “critical or necessary” to prove an issue that has a compelling public interest for its disclosure. Getting the stolen weapons off the street was one compelling public interest, Lee found.

    The law also required the police to demonstrate that all “reasonable and available means” to obtain the information has been exhausted.

    Seattle Times Executive Editor Michele Matassa Flores said the paper strongly opposes the subpoena and “believes it puts our independence, and even our staff’s physical safety, at risk.”

    “The media exist in large part to hold governments, including law enforcement agencies, accountable to the public,” said Matassa Flores. “We don’t work in concert with government, and it’s important to our credibility and effectiveness to retain our independence from those we cover.”

    The lawyer representing the media companies, Eric Stahl, argued Thursday that the police were casting too wide a net and couldn’t show that the images would identify the suspects.

    “You have to have a strong reason to believe there is actually going to be critical evidence” in the images, Stahl said after the hearing. “We think there was too much speculation going on.”

    The media companies have not yet decided if they will appeal the case, Stahl said.

    In a statement, the ACLU of Washington said the ruling “threatens the independence of the media. A free and independent media is a cornerstone of our democracy, and at a time when our basic freedoms are under attack, the City of Seattle should be doing everything possible to protect those foundational freedoms.”

    Brian Esler, a Seattle attorney hired to represent the Seattle police, did not respond to an interview request.

    SPD detective Michael Magan testified at the telephonic hearing Thursday morning that the department was at a dead end in its investigations. Police have arrested two suspects stemming from the thefts and arson, and have partially identified others based on other images.

    The May 30 protests included a large-scale nonviolent demonstration sparked by the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police earlier that week.

    During the protests, vandals heavily damaged six police vehicles. They smashed windows, removed ballistic helmets, uniforms, emergency medical equipment and fire extinguishers, and used an accelerant to start fires in five vehicles, according to a police affidavit and other documents.

    A loaded Glock 43 semi-automatic pistol and a loaded Colt M4 carbine rifle with a suppressor remain missing, according to the SPD affidavit.

    The SPD subpoena seeks media images taken during a 90-minute span in a four-block area between Fourth and Sixth Avenue and Olive Way to Pike Street that day.

    Lee set a hearing for July 30 at 9 a.m. to enter a final order. In the meantime, the parties are discussing how long it would take to produce the unpublished materials.

    Daughn I got the following back from an expert in hydrology with the understanding that it be shared only without attribution.

    The current flooding in China is behind a veil. I have had trouble finding data. Some of the dams rumored to be in trouble borrow design elements from dams in my region. Sometime in 1970s, the state department had a monograph published for the Chinese on inland navigation based on the MKARNS (McClellan Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System). A team mate turned up some articles. Some links broke very quickly. Here are a couple that are still up.

    “Vinayak told Taiwan News that based on his estimation, all the flood gates were at least partially open with at least five large gates fully open. He said that given that the dam had the structural integrity to withstand much higher water levels in the past, there was no need to open the floodgates as soon as June 24.

    “He then alleged that the purpose of opening the floodgates so early was ‘so that all evidence is washed away before the WHO representatives visit the Wuhan hospitals and lab.’ Two World Health Organization (WHO) experts went to Beijing over the weekend to discuss their plans to visit Wuhan to investigate the origins of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

    “The latest satellite images come from open-source imagery provider Sentinel, while the older maps are sourced from Google Earth, according to Vinayak.”

    The source of the theory is Indian intelligence, which has reason to see China in a bad light. However, photos from Wuhan are interesting.

  19. If no citizens will stand up, the business community will not, then all Portland cops can sit and collect a paycheck but do nothing.
    This has been the line of thinking from the geginning of blm.
    You either show support forvrule of law and get community business folk and regular folk to stand up or the cops will leave.

    1. One thing is clear. The game is “peaceful protesters” want that interaction with LE so that the propaganda ministry and the MarxistDems can -play victims. It would soon become CHAZ with murders and infighting.
      Why have they set their sights on the Federal Courthouse? They want the interaction.Honestly they’re probably hoping for one of them to be killed and another martyr will be created.

      Three thread culled to show a cohesive story line.

      …..But it’s also clear the lion’s share of his response is going to be CLANDESTINE.
      Antifa Leaders are being arrested at their HOMES.

      The US Marshals have been “pushing” Antifa for a week now as UNSEEN eyes watch & study everything to identify actionable crimes & leaders.
      .
      .
      .

      Neither side knows what the hell they’re looking at.
      This is NOT an illegal arrest/detainment.
      This is NOT an Antifa High Value Target being grabbed.
      This is an ASSET EXTRACTION.
      Watch the clip again.
      Marshal 1 HAND SIGNALS THE ARRESTEE….
      .
      .
      Who knows what triggered that extraction.
      Who knows what that Agent/Informant was doing.
      I’d love to have sat in on that debrief!
      Oh the things he must have WITNESSED!
      I wonder what EVIDENCE he might have gathered.

      The following thread seems to indicate that the asset have VALUABLE information on WHO and WHERE ANTIFA kept information

      ….Tonight about 40 US Marshals in 2 groups moved on foot & in vehicles to push & roust Antifa from their usual nightly antics.
      Their street barricades set up from anything they can grab were cleared & the Material comprising it thrown off an embankment…

      Group #2 did this as Group #1 confronted the Mob.
      The Marshals calmly take incredible levels of hate & venom from the Antifa punks who are, after YEARS of Antifa activity & never being held accountable, utterly fearless….

      Around 3:30 AM the Marshals suddenly returned.
      Again, 2 Groups.
      This time they don’t bother with barricades.
      They confront & PUSH Antifa away from the Park & Justice Complex.
      They use Tear Gas & Pepper Balls to force Antifa over a full Block.
      Antifa SCREAMS enraged…..

      I saw no arrests but this was only one group.
      The Marshals then retired to the Courthouse….

      After the Doors shut I heard several Antifa (including the Cameraman) laugh & say “well, that was pointless!”
      They’re IDIOTS…..
      .
      .
      .
      Antifa is playing STUPID GAMES with US Federal Marshals.

      Who are preparing for the day they get to hand these spoiled, violent Punks their STUPID PRIZES.
      While the Idiot Antifa were confronting 1 team, the other went to SPECIFIC Tents in the Park to collect EVIDENCE.

      You can sort of see the 2nd team of Feds in the picture among the tents.

      Thread: ANTIFA’S GREATEST WEAKNESS is what it THINKS is it’s greatest strength
      ANONYMITY.

      For weeks I’ve watched these Live streamers…

      Federal Teams have been arresting Agitators & Repeat Offenders for MONTHS already
      Now Trump’s going to STEP IT UP
      Violent repeat offenders are going away
      56 Joint Terrorism Task Force Offices?
      Hardcore Antifa’s going away too, when Trump no longer NEEDS them to distract the MSM….

    1. Probably will be appealed . . . and the appeal will lose. So, hopefully the decision will spread across the states . . . maybe taking more lawsuits and rulings.

      1. Not the normal win. They asked for an injunction. In the response to the motion, Inslee’s AG argued that there was no jurisdiction over Inslee because his office cannot enforce the proclamations. The judge agreed and set a hearing why the case should not be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.

        The state officially admitted that the proclamations and orders cannot be enforced. That’s a great victory, even if it’s hidden inside a legal document.

          1. Newsome is a criminal – I don’t put anything past him. However, he’s very sophisticated, so anything stupid gets side-eye from me, too.

            Gold and weapons? It sounds stupid at first, until you look back in history, when Mao and the Soviets backed leftist revolutions in South America. Gold figures into modern Venezuelan stuff as well.

            Seriously, I have no problems believing either gold or weapons, because at some point he’ll need them. The behavior of these West-coast tyrants is almost identical to Allende in Chile – who stockpiled valuables and weapons, while his economy tanked. Allende was cut off right before his planned auto-coup.

            Look at Venezuela. Weapons taken from the citizens and given to supporters.

            What I think is coming is that the leftists will try to create ASYLUM for “the coup” and other indicted folks (like Cankles) in their states. This is why you’re seeing the harsh reaction to federal law enforcement picking up wanted ANTIFA. That breaks their future asylum model.

            Any resemblance to things during the Civil War is purely YEAH, that too. 😀

              1. We can only hope! 😀

                But more realistically, I expect that these states are going to push for as much autonomy as they can get. Cankles will want to keep her comfortable digs in New York. Nursing Home Killer is pretty much committed to the Cankles path, as far as I can tell.

                It will fail, but they are depending on a series of future crises to protect them, IMO.

                A very smart hotep thinks that the Dems don’t WANT to try to win – that running BIDEN is a sign they PLAN to lose. To me that tells me they’re spider-holing for 2020, and maybe even 2024, all the while “building socialism” in the deep blue states.

  21. OMG! A MUST READ, excellent article. Brookings is the nexus, Fiona Hill, Strobe Talbot, Cody Shearer, Steele, drunken sub source Panchenko, w/a criminal record previously prosecuted by Rosenstein!!! They’ve also found a lower level FIB analyst Brian Auten to blame for not flagging all the dossier inconsistencies.

    1. I’ve been thinking they’ve been told “Do this, or you don’t get paid.”

      Our players, well, a lot of them, are the hunting and fishing sorts. They’re good, American boys. This is not their idea, and I would imagine is coming from New York. MLB keeps this up, and we’re gonna do 1994-95 all over again. It took the year with a perfect game, Cal Ripkin breaking the Iron Man record, and the McGwire-Sosa homerun competition to bring it back.

      This will end up being the same.

    1. The system is rigged. Medical research, like CIA programs, has to be SELF-SUPPORTING or so obviously needed BY THE DECISION-MAKERS that funding it with external money makes sense.

      This addiction to new drugs and new vaccines is a price of the patent system, frankly. The patent system is designed to make NEW THINGS profitable so that “advancement” is encouraged.

      1. I’ve heard some very negative things about our patent system. Another example of an excellent concept by our founding fathers co-opted by the body snatchers.

        1. The Founders may not have seen the long-range implications of the system. IIRC, such patents could be granted by royalty, so what the Founders did was to make such a system automatic and egalitarian.

          The main problem they did not foresee was that patenting a substance per se provides much stronger protection than patenting a use or some elaboration of the substance.

          NEW MOLECULES MAKE MONEY. OLD MOLECULES DON’T. The money chases new substances, forcing a CHOICE, and that choice is abandonment of working technology. It leads us into technological progressivism, and SOCIAL progressivism follows.

  23. How TN is managing their data.
    Good news – each case is not a positive test but a confirmed person. Testing rates reflect all tests, including multiple tests for the same person. However, confirmed cases are of individuals, period, not dependent on how many positives that indivdual has received.

    My question: hospitalizations are those only hospitalized *because* of wuflu or include those hospitalized *with* wuflu? ie – are heart attack or car accident patients admitted and found to also test positive for Covid 19, even if symptomless, counted as Covid 19 hospitalizations?
