Twitter Suspends Science Writer After He Posts Results Of Pfizer Clinical Test

Just yesterday, we discussed the censoring of a commentator by Twitter for merely expressing an opinion over the need for a “pause” on any federal mandates on Covid-19 as new research is studied.
 

Now, a former New York Times science reporter, Alex Berenson, has been suspended for simply quoting the results from a clinical trial by Pfizer and raising questions over any vaccine mandate. In the meantime, the White House accused both the Washington Post and New York Times of irresponsible reporting on Covid, but surprisingly Twitter has not suspended those accounts.  It is the license of the censor.  Twitter is unwilling to let people read or discuss viewpoints that it disagrees with as a corporation. Many on the left, however, have embraced the concept of corporate speech and censorship. It turns out that the problem with censorship for many was the failure to censor views that they opposed. With the “right” censors at work, the free speech concerns have been set aside.

I have little ability to judge the science on such questions. However, I welcome the debate. Yet, rather than answer such critics and refute their arguments, many people focus on silencing anyone with dissenting viewpoints like Berenson.

Berenson has been effectively confined to Substack by Big Tech due to his discussing dissenting views on the science surrounding Covid-19. His latest offense against Big Tech came when he posted the results published by Pfizer of its own clinical data. He claimed that the research showed little difference in morality between those in the trial with a vaccine and those given a placebo.

       "Now, you may be asking yourself how the CDC, an ostensibly scientific institution, had the power to literally steal the property of Americans without any restitution. The answer is that they didn’t have that power...(Kavanaugh's) reasoning was purely administrative instead of based on the law, i.e. to allow rental assistance payments to finish being doled out."

         So Kavanaugh ruled to withhold the money that landlords were rightfully entitled to, and desperately need, and to continue giving others a free ride at the expense of landlords and others...for a set period of time. The Biden administration would like to extend that period of time by fighting for an immoral position until the clock runs out in the courts.

Brett Kavanaugh's Gelatinous Spine Green-Lights More

Yesterday, the so-called eviction moratorium for renters put in place by the CDC expired, leading to much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Now, you may be asking yourself how the CDC, an ostensibly scientific institution, had the power to literally steal the property of Americans without any restitution.

The answer is that they didn’t have that power. Yet, when the issue came up before the Supreme Court, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who every Republican and conservative went to bat for when he was unfairly accused of being a gang rapist, decided to keep his seat at the cocktail parties instead of doing his job

In a tortured decision in June, Kavanaugh admitted that the CDC had overstepped its authority, but he ruled with the liberals anyway, allowing the previous eviction moratorium to run its course. His reasoning was purely administrative instead of based on the law, i.e. to allow rental assistance payments to finish being doled out.

With that moratorium ending yesterday, we are back to square one, with Democrats pushing the CDC to re-up its clearly illegal order.

In fact, the FHA has already extended its moratorium on foreclosures, which ensures the housing market will continue to be an inflated mess due to the lack of inventory. That means people who do things right get to pay exorbitant prices, while those who refuse to pay their bills get a free ride. Sound fair, right?

It’s just a matter of time before the CDC follows suit and extends their eviction moratorium as well, meaning that all the litigation to stop it will have to happen again in order to protect the rights of property owners. The government, whether it’s the CDC or Congress, does not have the constitutional authority to steal the homes of citizens under the guise of an emergency. That’s been clear from the beginning.

         "And while the world is reporting stunning benefits from ivermectin -- "Ivermectin obliterates 97% of Delhi cases" -- any mention of it in America is branded misinformation."

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2021/08/the_vaccine_experimental_times_two.html

The Vaccine: Experimental Times Two

If you don’t think vaccines are one of the great achievements of Western Civilization, just take a walk through a 19th-century cemetery and witness the reality of the human condition before them. However, the COVID vaccine is not a traditional vaccine. It is, instead, a huge experiment that can have major negative consequences and that our institutions are nevertheless trying to make mandatory.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s not that mRNA vaccines are inherently bad. They’re not. In fact, they are an extraordinary achievement in molecular biology. However, if not for mass censorship, it would be stunningly clear that the COVID vaccines have been causing an unacceptable level of adverse reactions, especially for a virus with a death rate of only 1/2 of 1%.

There’s a reason why new vaccine approval usually takes a decade or more. The immune system is complicated, highly variable between individuals, and in delicate balance. Immunocompromised individuals can succumb to any microbe...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That’s why rigorous testing is essential for any vaccine, and even then, every individual must weigh the risks versus benefits, just as they would for any approved medical treatment. But the COVID vaccines are not approved...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fauci has been busy not informing Americans of their options. Instead, he states “there should be more“ vaccine mandates and anyone objecting is “dangerous and extreme.” And while the world is reporting stunning benefits from ivermectin -- "Ivermectin obliterates 97% of Delhi cases" -- any mention of it in America is branded misinformation...They’re doing a pretty good job because Satoshi Omura, Nobel Prize winner for his work on Ivermectin, was censored from YouTube for daring to discuss his work.

What’s worse is that these vaccines are not just experimental; mRNA vaccines are a radical departure from traditional vaccines. Any vaccine rushed to market with Emergency Use Authorization would be called experimental; the COVID vaccines truly need a more alarming designation, say, “super” experimental?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Targeting mRNA-LNP to APCs is in its infancy. Most of the testing has been done in vitro, but studies have found little correlation with in vivo results. An in vivo study showed this targeting to be only 66% effective, so a full third of the mRNA-LNP is winding up in ordinary tissue. The consequences are very significant as the immune response in an ordinary cell is completely different from an APC.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Studies have shown that the spike protein itself has neurotoxic effects outside of the cell as well as causing clotting in the bloodstream. Using the spike protein for the antigen is what one researcher calls the “big mistake.” There is evidence the spike protein not only crosses the blood-brain barrier but is also preferentially absorbed by ACE2 expressive tissue including the heart, kidneys, ovaries, and arteries.

In a traditional vaccine, the dose is the dose but, here, the dose is dependent on highly variable cellular uptake of the mRNA-LNP, translation mechanisms from mRNA to protein, and the lifetime of the mRNA-LNP. Ordinary mRNA has a half-life of only a few minutes in the cell, and in that time the mRNA can make 10 to 100 spike proteins. But mRNA-1273 has been significantly modified to persist in the body 8-10 hours and have a 10-fold increase in translatability. Depending upon the individual, the dose of manufactured spike protein can be enormous.

It should be no wonder CDC’s VAERS site reports over 1000 cases of myocarditis, 600 miscarriages, 15,000 allergic reactions, and 5,000 deaths. What is a wonder is why the government is illegally colluding with Big Tech to suppress any word of this from getting out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

However, for healthy children and young adults, as well as the COVID recovered, where there is nearly no risk of death and only a minuscule chance of hospitalization, promoting these “super” experimental and potentially deadly vaccines in their current form is profoundly ill-advised.

Without Trump, Dems and Media Dehumanize the Unvaccinated to Salvage 2022 Midterms

With Donald Trump off the ballot and the 2022 midterms just over the horizon, Democrats and their corporate media allies have launched an obscene crusade to dehumanize the unvaccinated.

This anti-science campaign to demonize more than half the American people as walking biohazards (those who’ve chosen not to get vaccinated or who cannot due to their youth) is right out of the Nazi playbook and one of the most grotesque things I’ve ever witnessed.

According to the far-left CDC’s very own math, the unvaccinated are almost entirely a threat only to themselves and hardly that. Here are the numbers, and let me repeat: these numbers come straight from the far-left CDC…

The Unvaccinated:

  • If you’re unvaccinated and under the age of 70, your chances of surviving the coronavirus are over 99 percent.
  • If you’re unvaccinated and under the age of 50, your chances of surviving the coronavirus are over 99.9 percent, which puts you in flu territory.
  • If you’re unvaccinated and under the age of 20, your chances of surviving the coronavirus are 99.997 percent, which puts you in flu territory.

The Vaccinated:

Based on the numbers available right now (which could improve or worsen), of the 161 million-plus Americans who are vaccinated…

  • Only 5,914 have gotten sick enough to be hospitalized.
  • Only 1,141 have died.
  • Of those, 74 percent were over the age of 65.
  • In other words, only 0.0037 percent of the vaccinated have gotten sick enough to be hospitalized.
  • Only 0.00071 percent have died.
  • That means only 1 out of 27,223 of those vaccinated have gotten seriously ill.
  • Only 1 out of 114,000 have died.
  • Per the National Safety Council, your chances of dying in a car accident are 1 in 107.
  • Per the National Safety Council, your chances of dying in a car accident this year are 1 in 8,400.

The Dehumanization Campaign:

Based on numbers like that, numbers straight from the far-left CDC, we are witnessing a fear and scapegoating campaign unlike anything since the dark days of McCarthyism.

The question is, why?

The answer is obvious: the 2022 midterms.

For five years, former President Donald Trump was the Democrats’ Great Turnout Machine, and this is a failing party in desperate need of a bogeyman to turn out voters.

         "First, the COVID “vaccines” are not true vaccines based on the definitions of vaccines. Rather than the “vaccine” containing attenuated virus, it is a strand of messenger RNA, based on genetic code providee by China and serving as the basis for these novel “vaccines”...But it is a leap of faith assuming genetic code received from China is accurate and doesn’t contain any malicious bits."

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2021/08/do_the_covid_vaccines_work_or_not.html

Do the COVID Vaccines Work or Not?

We are a year and a half into the world’s nightmare of COVID-19, also known as the Chinese coronavirus, based on where this demon virus originated and spread from, either intentionally or inadvertently.

We have been told to not wear masks, then wear one mask, then two masks, then no masks indoors. Now we are back to indoor masking and soon outdoor masking, too.

The same “experts” told us that the vaccines were safe and effective, the pathway out of this nightmare. If we were vaccinated we no longer had to wear a mask, at least as of last May, according to the CDC. Two months later they reversed course, recommending mask-wearing indoors even if fully vaccinated.

Celebrities, from Pele to Dolly Parton, are endorsing the vaccines, showing photos of themselves getting jabbed. Yet despite half of American adults being fully vaccinated, cases are rising.

Do the vaccines work or not? Depending on the day and pronouncement, it is hard to know.

First, the COVID “vaccines” are not true vaccines based on the definitions of vaccines. Rather than the “vaccine” containing attenuated virus, it is a strand of messenger RNA, based on genetic code providee by China and serving as the basis for these novel “vaccines” which cause the body to create spike protein which in turn supposedly generates an immune response in the vaccinated to supposedly provide short or long term immunity. How long that immunity lasts is anyone's guess.

I say “supposedly” frequently as it seems no one knows anything for sure. The New York Times belatedly acknowledged, “There’s much to learn about how the virus spreads.” Tell that to the CNN and MSNBC anchors who think they have it all figured out.

Just because mRNA vaccines represent new technology doesn’t mean it won’t work or it’s bad. But it is a leap of faith assuming genetic code received from China is accurate and doesn’t contain any malicious bits. We can now 3D print organs. If an adversary country sent us computer code to 3D print a new kidney, would we rely on such code to be safe and effective?

Do vaccines prevent illness or simply mitigate things? The influenza or flu vaccine is about 50 percent effective, meaning many still get the flu. The COVID vaccine trials' primary endpoint, confirmed cases at least two weeks post-vaccination, was met, as was the secondary endpoint of reducing severe cases.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If the vaccines work, why do we see headlines like this? “Tennessee experiences 27 deaths in more than 1,000 breakthrough cases among vaccinated individuals.” Or from a solid non-MAGA blue state, “49 people who were fully vaccinated have died of COVID in NJ.”  From the Washington Post, “Three fourths of those infected in Mass. outbreak were vaccinated.” Do the vaccines work or not? Or were the vaccine expectations overly optimistic?

Chinese coronavirus cases peaked in the U.S. in early January, before anyone was fully vaccinated, and have been declining since, until a recent uptick in positive tests. Cases in India peaked in early May and then precipitously dropped despite only 7 percent of the population being fully vaccinated. In these cases, the vaccine could not have been responsible for the declines.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is the same test that was “positive” when a goat and paw paw fruit were tested in Tanzania last year.

The question is not only whether the vaccines work but also if the testing works? It seems we really don’t know.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not looking for or recording breakthrough cases is a good way to not have any, but that’s not science. It’s like the old medical school axiom, “If you don’t take a temperature  you won’t find a fever.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If the COVID test is accurate, why are previously infected and/or vaccinated testing positive, upending their lives and livelihoods? Does the test distinguish between the flu and COVID, as the CDC quietly acknowledged that current tests may not? This might explain the absence of influenza this past season as those with the flu may have been misdiagnosed as having COVID.

        "A McKinsey study released last week surveyed the damage. It concluded that school closures “left students on average five months behind in mathematics and four months behind in reading by the end of the school year.”

https://nypost.com/2021/08/01/masking-kids-and-closing-schools-is-irrational-child-abuse/

Masking kids and closing schools is irrational, unscientific child abuse

America’s public-health bureaucrats, chiefly the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are insisting on masking kids and granting baseless alibis to teachers unions that would delay or defer schools reopening for another year, if they could get away with it. 

This, even as fresh evidence mounts that kids aren’t at risk from COVID-19 and aren’t spreaders — and that school closures do them grave harm.

A study out of the UK released last week proved — once again — what we’ve known for more than a year: Kids transmit the coronavirus at a much lower rate than do adults. Epidemiologist Shamez Ladhani, who led the study, found that children “aren’t taking [the virus] home and then transferring it to the community. These kids have very little capacity to infect household members.” 

Nevertheless, we Americans ­inflicted misery upon our kids. We took away school, kept them apart from their friends, and needlessly covered their faces. It wasn’t all kids who suffered, though. Kids in private and parochial schools in urban areas went to school. Kids in public schools in GOP-governed areas also went to school (and even got to play sports, mask-free).

And everything turned out OK: States with open schools didn’t have more child COVID cases and certainly not more hospitalizations or deaths. Schools without mask mandates didn’t have significantly more COVID cases. They simply put kids first. 

But kids unlucky enough to live in blue cities and states were subjected to the anti-science mania of gentry liberals and the cravenness of political leaders beholden to teachers unions. 

A McKinsey study released last week surveyed the damage. It concluded that school closures “left students on average five months behind in mathematics and four months behind in reading by the end of the school year.” 

Although the McKinsey study researched the effects of the “unfinished” 2019-20 academic year, it doesn’t take rocket science to conclude that students who then had the benefit of full-time, ­in-person schooling in 2020-21 did far better than those whom unions and politicians subjected to nearly another full year of school closures — like kids in Gotham.

And again, for what? Study after disregarded study has shown that even unvaccinated children are safer than many vaccinated adults. Kids don’t spread COVID the same way. Schools aren’t infection hot spots. Kids rarely get sick from COVID and, when they do, it’s no worse than a cold.

We need to internalize this and stop listening to unhinged bureaucrats and journalists who frame children as little disease vectors. They aren’t. There’s a reason much of Europe didn’t mask kids under age 12 at all. It isn’t that they care about their kids less than we do, here in a country that starts masking at the insane age of 2. In fact, it shows Europeans care about their kids’ development so much they won’t force them to play bit parts in a grand psychodrama.

What about teachers? Teachers, we are told by those who have kept kids out of classrooms for more than a year, are terrified. Yet are they?  

Over the weekend, we learned that 40 percent of Big ­Apple teachers haven’t received the COVID vaccine. American Federation of Teachers boss Randi Weingarten said, “We believe strongly that everyone should get vaccinated, unless they have a medical or religious exception, and that this should be a mandatory subject of negotiation for ­employers to keep their employees safe and build trust.

        "Of the 6,275 new cases reported Monday, 44.3% were unvaccinated, compared to 54% who were fully vaccinated, and 1.7% who had received one dose of the vaccine...Among seriously ill patients, 36% are not vaccinated, compared to 61% who are fully vaccinated and 3% who received one dose of the vaccine."

6,275 new COVID cases in one day as infection rate soars 

6,275 new COVID cases in Israel in one day as infection rate soars

Number of seriously ill COVID patients rises to 394, while number of daily new confirmed cases nearly doubles.

The number of new confirmed cases of the coronavirus rose sharply Monday, along with the percentage of tests coming back positive.

According to data released by the Israeli Health Ministry Tuesday morning, a total of 6,275 new cases of the coronavirus were diagnosed across Israel on Monday, up from 3,421 a day earlier.

Of the 6,275 new cases reported Monday, 44.3% were unvaccinated, compared to 54% who were fully vaccinated, and 1.7% who had received one dose of the vaccine.

The percentage of tests coming back positive also rose, rising from 3.9% on Sunday to 4.84% Monday.

There are now 35,466 known active cases of the virus in Israel. A total of 648 patients are hospitalized with COVID.

Of those, 394 are in serious condition, up from 379 on Monday. That is the highest number since March 30th.

There are 87 patients in critical condition, including 64 on respirators.

Among seriously ill patients, 36% are not vaccinated, compared to 61% who are fully vaccinated and 3% who received one dose of the vaccine.
