CDC Changes Definition of “Vaccine”, Vindicates Alex Berenson

If you think that our establishment medical community is honest, think again. They are not. The litany of lies and deception grows with each passing day. The latest victim of the new Orwellian world of redefining truth comes courtesy of the CDC. They have changed the definition of “vaccine” and “vaccination” because so many vaccinated people are still being infected with a variant of Covid. This is good news for Alex Berenson, who is suing Twitter for defamation.

Here is the tweet about the Covid vaccine that got Alex banned:

 “It doesn’t stop infection. Or transmission. Don’t think of it as a vaccine.

So look at what the CDC did? Here’s the definition the CDC used on 26 August 2021:

  • Vaccine– “a product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease.”
  • Vaccination– “the act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.”

Got it? A vaccine is supposed to produce immunity to a specific disease.

The problem is that Covid 19 is not a disease. It causes a variety of diseases. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky recently admitted that the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines are “waning.”

Rather than admit the Covid vaccine is not working as advertised, CDC took a page out of Orwell’s 1984 and opted for new spin language.

Here is the new definition:

  • Vaccine– “a preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases.”

Note the subtle but important change. Instead of “PRODUCING IMMUNITY” the new definition moves the goal posts and states that their pseudo vaccine “STIMULATES THE BODY’S IMMUNE RESPONSE.”

The problem for people keen on protecting their health is that the Immune Response produced by the Covid vaccines appears to actually spark more Covid infection in some patients.

Note the subtle but important change. Instead of “PRODUCING IMMUNITY” the new definition moves the goal posts and states that their pseudo vaccine “STIMULATES THE BODY’S IMMUNE RESPONSE.”

The problem for people keen on protecting their health is that the Immune Response produced by the Covid vaccines appears to actually spark more Covid infection in some patients.

In light of Fauci’s demonstrable lying before Congress, it is time to stop trusting anything the CDC says.

Alex Berenson is taking a victory lap. He was banned from Twitter for claiming, CORRECTLY, that the Covid vaccine DID NOT PRODUCE IMMUNITY. Looks like the CDC now agrees with Alex.

    There is widespread lying, cheating, and stealing going on at medical schools. I have it from an honored professor who has taught at the medical schools in Virginia- MCV, UVa, EVMS ( Northam’s medical alma mater – explains much). This is an extension of the lack of personal honor and dishonesty so prevalent in the medical profession that has been corrupted by the pharma $$$$$ billions. Shame on the medical
    profession an fellow travelers.

    The new CDC definition is more accurate, especially when you consider the scrutiny it gets from conspiracy theorists.

    national file is not a credible source.

    Yes, 251 more viral load – that’s the delta strain for you. from the paper:

    “ Background: Data on breakthrough SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant infections are limited.

    Methods: We studied breakthrough infections among healthcare workers of a major infectious diseases hospital in Vietnam. We collected demographics, vaccination history and results of PCR diagnosis alongside clinical data. We measured SARS-CoV-2 (neutralizing) antibodies at diagnosis, and at week 1, 2 and 3 after diagnosis. We sequenced the viruses using ARTIC protocol.

    Findings: Between 11th–25th June 2021 (week 7–8 after dose 2), 69 healthcare workers were tested positive for SARS-CoV-2. 62 participated in the clinical study. 49 were (pre)symptomatic with one requiring oxygen supplementation. All recovered uneventfully. 23 complete-genome sequences were obtained. They all belonged to the Delta variant, and were phylogenetically distinct from the contemporary Delta variant sequences obtained from community transmission cases, suggestive of ongoing transmission between the workers. Viral loads of breakthrough Delta variant infection cases were 251 times higher than those of cases infected with old strains detected between March-April 2020. Time from diagnosis to PCR negative was 8–33 days (median: 21). Neutralizing antibody levels after vaccination and at diagnosis of the cases were lower than those in the matched uninfected controls. There was no correlation between vaccine-induced neutralizing antibody levels and viral loads or the development of symptoms.

    Interpretation: Breakthrough Delta variant infections are associated with high viral loads, prolonged PCR positivity, and low levels of vaccine-induced neutralizing antibodies, explaining the transmission between the vaccinated people. Physical distancing measures remain critical to reduce SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant transmission.”

    As for waning effectiveness, so what? Vaccination still beats getting Covid unvaccinated!

    As for cause of death – bullshit.. Read the LATimes op ed.

    Covid rots your lungs. Without lungs you are dead. Of course it is a race to see what particular organ fails after your lungs are &*&&ed. This argument is exactlylike the old car racing joke: “what happened to your car? Electrical failure!. How did that happen? A rod came through the crankcase and knocked the alternator off!” The primary cause of death from Covid is a lack of oxygen.

    Please get vaccinated.

      Your comment takes stupidity to a new level. I reported what the CDC did. Are you a moron? Claiming that the “national file is not a credible source” shows that you are a total dumbass.
      A vaccine is supposed to produce immunity. PERIOD. The Covid vaccine does not. No fixing stupid.

      • DJK says:

        Really? This is how you respond to a polite suggestion to get the vaccine?

        We can split hairs over the definition of what constitutes a vaccine, but the evidence is pretty clear that if you are exposed to Covid-19 there is an uncomfortably large chance that you will be hospitalized, emerge with organ damage, or die a nasty death. The danger is small if you are young; rather less small if over 50.

        With two shots of Pfizer/Moderna/AstraZeneca, etc. you may still catch the virus, but the chances of serious illness or death are greatly reduced. Most people would regard that as a no-brainer.

          a. Kindly produce that evidence.
          b. Based on both my own observation (listening to at least 100 “medical experts” on C Span who argued against HCQ and repeated that fear-inducing statements regarding “catching Covid”) as well as the commentary of Dr. Peter McCullough,
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fsg6ev4OFJg&t=894s
          who said that guidelines issued to physicians offered NO therapies for the disease other than “wait until the symptoms are so bad that hospitalization and ventilation are required.” Not only that, McCullough said — and numerous “experts” on C Span have reiterated: Hydroxychloroquine + zinc; Ivermectin, and a prophylactic vitamin regimen can help one survive having contracted Covid (in the relatively few cases where that occurs), and/or strengthen the immune system to ward off the disease entirely.

          I do not recall the numbers/percentages, but both Dr. McCullough and Dr. Vladimir Zelenko have stated that (about) 85% of those who are said to have died of Covid could have survived if appropriate therapy had been administered in a timely fashion. Dr. Zelenko said that he has treated, outside of hospitals, several thousands of persons, as well as then-president of US, Donald Trump, with the above mentioned therapies and they have all survived and regained health — and are immune to the virus — today.

          Walrus’ polite entreaties are not the problem, walrus at least believes there should be a choice (I think). One of his countrymen, the Premier of Victoria was recently rather less polite: “we’re going to lock out [of society] people who are not vaccinated”. Hobson’s choice I think they call this.

          Would you please post what this “uncomfortably large chance” is by age group? There may be some cognitive dissonance when you actually see what that chance is.

        • Deap says:

          DJK: Is the 0.01% chance you will die a long slow miserable death if you are exposed to “covid”, what you call an “uncomfortably large chance”?

          Keep in mind, those early reports of “miserable deaths” were due to over-use of ventilators and over-treatment of oxygen saturation numbers – chasing metrics and not responding to the patients actual symptoms.

          Sorry those early and highly politicized days left such a vivid impression on your future understanding of this flu season case. I highly recommend you read the 10 year Johns Hopkins CDC morbidity data analysis so you can start sleeping better.

          • DJK says:

            What constitutes uncomfortable is subjective, of course. I just looked up the figures: 654,000 people have died of Covid-19 in the USA, which is about 0.2% of the total population. So I think your figure of 0.01% chance of dying if you catch it is rather wide of the mark.
            Still, regardless of that, taking the vaccine will greatly improve your chance of avoiding death or life-changing illness. Really, why wouldn’t any mature adult want to do that.

          • Larry Johnson says:

            If you are vaccinated than why does it matter if I am vaccinated? You insist that the “vaccine improves your chance of avoiding death.” Fine. If you are vaccinated then how do I make you sick? The vaccine works, right? Blind me with your brilliance and answer my question.

        • Deap says:

          Enough of this “645K have died of covid” nonsense.

          The FDA now admits they have no accurate test and stopped using the one that set the benchmark for all prior data gathering. . They mixed up dying FROM covid, and dying WITH covid – two hugely material differences. And even worse they started listing any assumed respiratory infection case as “PIC” – which is an intentional mash up of either pneumonia, influenza or “covid” to confuse the data even further. Yes, your government will lie to you.

          This means there is net zero authority for any “covid death” statistic claim, or even an reliability about case numbers. Zero. Which was the point raised in the comprehensive Johns Hopkins CDC morbidity data analysis. This fact should shock your conscience, and hopefully you would never pass off this patent misinformation about “covid death” numbers ever again.

          • Eric Newhill says:

            Deap,
            Yes, please. Enough with the 645K figure.

            I can confirm. There is nothing like 645K US died *of* covid.

            But even if that was the true figure, the risk is not spread evenly across the population. This is even clearly spelled out in the CDC’s own data on their own site. For most of us, the risk is something like 0.01% or less *if* we contract the virus. Higher risk doesn’t really come into play until one is over 70 (really more like 75) and with serious underlying conditions.

            I don’t understand people that keep insisting we are all at the same risk. They’re either incredibly stupid products of a failed public education system, liars trying to spread false fears, or both.

      Walrus,

      ” CDC definition is more accurate, especially when you consider the scrutiny it gets from conspiracy theorists.”

      Do you mean the CDC has been lying to us for years, or that only conspiracy theorists and not medical professionals ever gave the CDC scrutiny?

      “Yes, 251 more viral load – that’s the delta strain for you”

      So the shots cause you to become COVID carriers and thus infect other people? That the vaccinated become dangerous to everyone else? My, my, why doesn’t the CDC warn us all that this is what will happen to us.

      “As for waning effectiveness, so what?”
      So get it NOW before it is completely useless? That doesn’t make a lot of sense comrade. Especially since it makes you a carrier who is going to be infecting people with Covid.

      “Covid rots your lungs. ”

      Thanks Dr. Walrus. I was thinking it was a secondary pneumonia infection that damaged the lungs, but what do I, or all those other doctors who said so, know. Antibiotics to treat that secondary infection? How dare I think that is effective.

      • Barbara Ann says:

        Fred

        The (very low) risk of lung rot is one I’m happy to take. The extremely high risk that my personal liberties will be permanently rotted by power crazed public health agencies, in the name of keeping me ‘safe’, is not.

      • Deap says:

        I think it was the over use of ventilators that “rotted the lungs” of the early “covid” patients. They backed way off once the doctors realized too many patients were iatrogenically drying after their inappropriate use.

        The very early demands to ramp up wartime levels of ventilator production, which Trump put into action, stopped because they stopped using them as first line treatment. Far less invasive means of oxygen supplementation stopped those early “rotten lung”deaths.

        • Eric Newhill says:

          Yes. That is the truth. I have seen the authorization protocols change after the initial failures and iatrogenic deaths, especially in NYC.

    • JK/AR says:

      All those references to the vaunted ‘PCR testing’ that our CDC (about) a month ago gave up its EUA for explaining “PCR testing is unreliable” – those references?

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6v5VrpgXPm4

      (Yes of course she’s a newsreader but her sourcing is solid.) So “Please get vaccinated” ought be previously qualified with a “Get tested for antibodies first but then, in the absence of antibodies one might consider *vaccination. Please.”)

      • Deap says:

        The fact we have no triage mechanism up front as this point before Biden’s new emergency 100% vaccine mandate is downright criminal. What have our massive public health bureaucracies been doing with all these daily incident reports?

        Has not enough data been gathered to learn who potentially will be harmed by this alleged injection, and just as importantly who may not need it at all, due to prior infection immunity or even an enhanced state of natural immunity.

        Biden is offing crazy if he thinks a 100% vaccine one size fits all mandate makes sense, let alone passes legal muster. He has to prove a 99% recovery upper respiratory infection is a “national emergency” worthy of granting him plenipotentiary powers.

        When has this been granted in the past – when we incarcerated all the Japanese Americans? I can remember no other one-size fits all mandate issuing from the President of the United States during my own four score years in this country.

        That Biden is “tried of covid” is his problem; not ours. He fostered the covid porn for his own political gain. He over-promised he would cure this, just to get elected. Now he is casting about to blame anyone and anything, other than his own culpability in his own “pandemic”.

  3. TTG says:

    I’ve never heard of any vaccine claiming 100% effectiveness. The annual flu vaccines are usually 50 to 60% as long as the right strains are picked. The mRNA vaccines were touted as 94 or 95% effective in the original trials. The J&J was 72%. Sputnik was 92% and AstraZeneca was listed as 70% effective. Any claim that a vaccine must be 100% effective to be called a vaccine is just plain bullshit.

    • Fred says:

      TTG,
      The flu vaccine, based on the CDC’s own new definitions, aren’t vaccines they are immune system stimulants. I stopped getting them a decade ago after repeatedly coming down with the flu after getting the shots, the last time I was almost hospitalized.

      “were touted as 94 or 95% effective ”

      “Touted as” are the key words. Turns out they aren’t that effective. There are also reports out the J&J’s control group all wound up getting vaccinated, which pretty much eliminated the ‘trial’ entirely.

      “Any claim that a vaccine must be 100% effective….”

      Larry didn’t make that claim. Neither did the article he linked too. Why are you bringing it up?

    • Eric Newhill says:

      TTG,
      Desperate flailing that misses Larry’s point.

      Anyhow, how many cases of small pox, measles, mumps, rubella,Diphtheria, Tetanus, Acellular Pertussis, polio among US born citizens (not third world recent arrivals)? Pretty much 0 because US born citizens receive real effective vaccinations – the original sense of the word – against these diseases.

      Get it? A true vaccine means you don’t get sick from the bug and the bug disappears from being a threat to the population. Your idiotic covid vaccines don’t do that and, recognizing that they don’t, the CDC merely changed the definition of a vaccine as opposed to admitting that the vaccines are failing.

      The flue shots are scam that continues because it’s largely harmless and cheap. Personally, I never get one. I suggest you stop using them as an example because it only makes your flailing more obvious to those who know.

      Anyhow, with the changed CDC definition, that you missed, I think I can now safely say that sunshine is a “vaccine”. There is evidence that it boosts my body’s ability to fight off a covid infection; more evidence than the efficacy of the stupid flu shot full of last year’s flu virus and not this one’s.

    • stueeeeeeeee says:

      Don’t be disingenuous. No one classifies flu shots as vaccines. Yes, the term vaccine implies near 100% effective. For most people who have taken the traditional vaccines (measles, chickenpox…etc), it has been. Doesn’t it make you pause when the definition of vaccine has be to be changed in order to downplay the COVID shot’s ineffectiveness. If we accept this absurd new definition, then chicken soup would be classified as a vaccine.

    • KK says:

      It is a weak argument to claim that CDC is correct since “no vaccine is 100% effective”. Covid vaccines were sold as real true vaccines (that provide immunity) – all the politicians and experts (“experts”) were touting – “get vaccinated, be protected”. mRNA vaccines were 94/95% effective against the original Wuhan strain, which went extinct many months ago. But there is dishonesty involved with the whole process of the covid vaccine approval. 1) it was obvious from the beginning that 94/95% effectiveness will not hold in real life, since already at the time, variants were dominant, 2) 3 months into the RCT (randomized clinical trial), the control group was wiped out (people in the control group were called and told they got placebo, and called back and given the vaccine), which is a kind of nice, if you want to make it impossible to evaluate vaccine, since there is no control group any more, 3) when Pfizer (actually BioNTech) got full FDA approval 2 weeks ago, the data used to justify was from spring; there is more data available since spring, why was the more recent data not used? 4) mRNA (Pfizer, Moderna) dosage is calibrated so that it gives something like 10 times the antibody volume compared to antibody volume in infected people – given that antibody counts in vaccinated people drop 40% per month (see below), had they calibrated the vaccine dosage so that the antibody count equals antibody count in infected people, the vaccine induced antibody count would have been reduced close to 0 in 3 months, and the RCT would have been a failure; basically they had to hike the dosage, to cover up the rapidly declining effectiveness.

      We know
      https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.08.19.21262111v1
      that antibody counts in vaccinated people drop 40% per month. In people who recovered from infection, the drop is only 5% per month.

      More worryingly, we know (from Israel, which got (almost) fully vaccinated early on, and it is ahead of the curve compared to e.g. US) that by now, the majority of hospitalized people (with covid) are vaccinated. This seems to indicate that there is no B-cell recall. But the point of vaccination is to train B (and T) cells to recognize the pathogen, so that they can quickly crank out antibodies (this is what produces immunity). mRNA vaccines don’t seem to do that.

      Basically what the mRNA vaccines do is produce a (very) temporary protection against serious symptoms, and this protection is mostly gone in 6 months.

      • Eric Newhill says:

        KK,
        Not disagreeing with you, but you are overlooking something important about the vaccines original claimed 95% (or whatever) efficacy. 95% of the people who tested positive a little or no symptoms anyhow.

        You see the problem, right? You could get vaxxed with a placebo and the results would be the same (assuming for the moment no bad reactions/side effects with the real vax). If you end up being one of the rare .01% (for younger people) or 2% (of older/sicker people) that get covid and become seriously ill and, well, we told you the vax isn’t perfect. By establishing (somehow, magically?) a 95% efficacy out of the gate, there was never a solid way to call that rate into question. Or, in other words, the claimed efficacy was always the same, more or less, as the unvaxxed control group. Very clever.

        Of course now we know about dangerous side effects of the vax, though that data is still very much concealed. And it seems that hospitalizations of the vaxxed and the calls for additional boosters are calling into question even the 95% efficacy figures.

        The pro-vac crowd is now falling back on weak BS about how the vaxxed may be getting sick, BUT NOT AS SICK as the unvaxxed when they contract the bug. This too will soon be revealed as a lie; just as they lie about Israel’s and other countries’ failing experiences with mass vaccinations. Before long, it will be all transparent lies – I predict that that at that point the pro-vaxxers will just start pointing loaded guns at people.

    • Mark Logan says:

      I believe the confusion is due to a mistaken view that having immunity means there will be no infection whatsoever. That’s not what they mean to impart with the term “immunity”, what they mean is one will not get sick, or have only very mild symptoms.

      “100% effective” in the pandemic context means nobody gets ill, no dis-ease, to break that word into it’s etymological roots.

      “100% effective” in the microbiological context means there is no virus present at all, as in no test can detect any.

      “Infection” does not equal “disease”. The parts of our immune system which fight this and other respiratory system bugs are nearly all reactive, staging up in the lymphatic and circulatory systems. The cell walls exposed to air do not receive armor plating which prevents the virus from entering some cells.

      Nobody has bothered to broadly test the population for the common flues which pass through us every year, but it’s a pretty good bet that if there were such testing it would be found those viruses create minor infections within people who are unaware of it, and that the healthy spread it for some period of time, in exactly the same way as COVID is now. It’s unfortunately information which takes longer than twitter allows to explain fully. Perhaps beyond the bandwidth of many of our pundits anyway… in any event, outrage always pays more.

      • Sam says:

        It would be great if an intrepid reporter asks CDC to clarify their definition of the perfectly ambiguous word “protection”. Do they have a quantitative measure? And why the change from pre-2015 which appears to be non-ambiguous?

      • Eric Newhill says:

        Mark Logan,
        More pedantic obfuscation on your part.

        This may end up being even more long winded than usual, but here goes….

        Say you’re an infantry battalion commander and you have three rifle companies consisting of 200 men each. You’re at war and on the front line. Say this is also a most wonderful military in which you receive combat effective replacements every day. So you’re always at full strength.

        Unfortunately for you and your men, your mission is to deny the enemy access to a ridge line that sits above open ground a few hundred meters in depth. Within the ridge, is a cave system. The enemy is firmly dug in on that ridge. They are impervious to your artillery and close air support because they remain deep in the caves until those fires have lifted. Then they emerge to fire on your exposed men as they perform their daily sweep across the open ground below.

        Every day you send out two companies (400 men) – and every day your men suffer 5% casualties from enemy fire from the ridge. So that’s a loss of 20 men/day (5% of 400 is 20). This is terrible, sucks big time, but it has to be done.

        Then along comes some defense contractor. He claims he has worked with the guys at Area 51 to reverse engineer space alien cloaking tech and developed a product he has christened “Invisocam”. This is camouflaged utilities, helmet cover, packs, web gear, etc. that literally make you invisible to the enemy. It’s 95% effective he says (sometimes it doesn’t totally work due to certain atmospheric conditions, certain materials, like gun oil, adhering to it in large amounts, that sort of thing).

        Concerned for the welfare of your men and the success of the mission, you get your favorite crafty supply sergeant to requisition some these uniforms and you order all men to wear them when going outside the wire.

        Nothing has changed with the enemy in terms of strength and determination to hold the ridge line. You send your two companies the next day out and, lo and behold, to your great relief, they suffer only 1 casualty (95% of 20 = 1). Same thing the next day and the day after that. After 30 days with the same results you conclude – CORRECTLY – that Invisocam really is 95% effective – and you’ve finally taken the ridge. That’s the happy scenario.

        The unhappy scenario is that you send your companies out across the open ground the first day they are sporting Invisocam utilities and they suffer 20 casualties. The next day, the same and day after that, the same and so on. Nothing has changed. Your companies had suffered 20 casualties a day before Invisocam and they’re suffering 20 casualties day after Invisocam. You go back to the DoD contractor with wringing his neck on your mind. He holds up his hands and says, “Hey I told you it’s 95% effective and it is. 95% of your men don’t get hit when they wear my product”. You go ahead and wring his neck.

        As you can see, it is important to know how “95% effective” is defined. It’s all a matter of which denominator you use – the entire population (of both companies in this story) or the population of daily casualties.

        So if the vaccines are said to be 95% effective because they will prevent 95% of the population from getting hospitalized or dead from covid, then that is as meaningless the unhappy Invisocam scenario *because less than 5% of the population was getting hospitalized or dead from covid before the vaccine*.

        On the other hand, if the claim is that the vaccine will reduce the number of casualties by 95%, then that would represent an effective vaccine.

        So the question is, has the vaccine reduced the number of casualties by 95%?

        The answer is “no”. There has not been a 95% reduction in covid casualties since the introduction of the vaccine; not anywhere. Now the covidians want to blame that on the unvaxxed. Hence the apocryphal stories of hospitals jammed full of unvaxxed idiots with their lungs rotting away.

        Those claims don’t even pass the most cursory of sniff tests. Something like 54% of all Americans have been fully vaccinated. That alone should reduce the covid casualty rate by around 49% (making allowances for the admitted 5% unefficacy) if the vaccine works as advertised, regardless of the 46% who are unvaxxed. Of course vaccination rates differ from state to state and age group to age group, but can anyone show me where covid casualties have dropped directly proportional (less the 5%) to the percent vaccinated? Nope.

        Through this lens the lack of vaccine efficacy becomes even more clear when we look at countries where the vaccination rate is very high, but hospitalizations and deaths also remain high. 78% of Israelis are vaccinated. Yet July 2021 saw more Israelis hospitalized for covid than July 2020 (see here – https://covid19.who.int/region/euro/country/il). How can that be with a vaccine that is supposed to be 95% effective unless, like with the unhappy Invisocam scenario, the entire population is the denominator and not the casualty cohort?

        That’s a model of a sniff test I’d encourage everyone to explore. Of course there are many nuances and finer cuts of data that need to be done to fully understand how useless, at best, the vaccines are.

        • Mark Logan says:

          Eric,

          A wonderful analogy but to make it fit this situation you must create a scenario in which a significant portion of the force is rejecting the Inviso shield and going without it, and then comparing the casualties between the invisible and the visible.

          Our real world casualty figures are coming in from staff at hospitals, ERs and ICUs, and are prompting governors even in red states to beg people to be vaccinated because they say the vast majority of the seriously ill are unvaxed.

    Larry

    Great news, so those vitamin D supplements I take must now mean I’m “vaccinated”. It surely won’t be long before The Center for Domination and Control of People updates the definition of other words, like “liberty”.

    The character Syme (whose job is to edit the 11th edition of the Newspeak dictionary) explains the rationale for this process in chapter 5 of 1984. I’d strongly recommend people re-read the whole chapter, as we are clearly “there” now:

    Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.

    We can evidently add the CDC to the list of agencies totally compromised. It comes down to this: You are either happy to live in a world where a public health agency gets to define the meaning of words or you are not, there is no middle ground here. This is so much bigger than “vaccines”.

    • Deap says:

      Same way cardiovascular disease deaths are now written up simply as “asystole” (basically the heart stopped beating, but no causation stated).

      That way they can claim the numbers of heart disease deaths are going down, to justify the billions of dollars spent on cardio-vascular disease treatment and billions more on lifetime CVD medications – primarily statins and HBP meds.

  7. Fred says:

    Larry,

    CDC Director Rachel Walensky needs to be asked specificly about the potential
    Antibody Dependent Enhancement being created by the various mRNA vaccines, and if those don’t just enhance Covid-19, but will potentially enhance all similar viruses, like all the corona viruses that cause the common cold.

  8. Eric Newhill says:

    This all reminds me of the build up to the invasion of Iraq with Fauci (and some people here) in the Rumsfeld role (we know where the WMD are. They’re east, west, north and south of Baghdad…that there is a mobile bioweapons lab…Mushroom clouds over New York!….there known knowns, unknown knowns, known unknown knowns…blah blah blah).

    The power of the federal government and the amount of money involved is incredible. If the government declares a drug to be safe enough and effective then insurance must cover it. If insurance refuses because its own robust internal data is contrary to what the govt says, then that company has opened itself to massive lawsuits and loss of business. The govt can – and does – strong arm the private sector.

    This all comes down to how much one trusts that the govt is populated by the best, brightest, most incorruptible and wisest people – and they always make the right decision.

    Well, did we find WMD in Iraq? Did Afghanistan nation building workout? Were we warned by people like Col Lang that we were being served Koolaid? It would seem that sometimes conspiracies are real, especially when sacred ideology and tons of money are on the line.

    • Deap says:

      Did the NVA really attack US Navy ships in the Gulf of Tonkin? Did Bill Clinton really have sex with that woman? Was Nixon a crook? Did you really get to keep your doctor and your health care plan? Was Trump’s Inauguration crowd the largest ever?

      Lies, degrees of lies and the impacts of those official lies – are the measure of the man.

        Yes with regard to the first day. This was in response to our landing some recon teams. The second day was Navy hysteria.

    • Barbara Ann says:

      The parallels go well beyond WMD and Koolaid. The GWOT was declared, the Patriot Act was passed and civil liberties were suspended so that victory would be assured. 20 years later here we are. But we are now in a new forever war – the forever war to end all forever wars. This time the enemy is nothing as trivial as “terror”, but predictably it is another abstract noun, it is mortality itself. Welcome to the Global War on Mortality (GWOM). The insidious unseen enemy this time is a virus and guess what, civil liberties are to be suspended so that victory will be assured. Mortality must be defeated, no matter what the cost.

      Jefferson’s timid men will be our undoing. They empower the State to tyrannize us in the name of keeping us safe. A contributor above described his/her feelings of “uncomfortable risk”. Just as in the GWOT, the incentives are thus on wannabe tyrants to blow the risks out of all proportion so this bar can be lowered. Well screw your comfort levels. The fearful should have the decency to make their comfort their own business, not mine. Wear all the masks you want, take all the drugs you like and lock yourselves away if that makes you feel better, but don’t tell me how to live my life.

        Barbara Ann,

        Many interesting similarities between what happened after 9/11 & after the emergence of C19. If you agreed to turn off your critical faculties and fill your head with childish propaganda back then, you paved the way for what happened now. All part of the same historical process.

        https://twitter.com/luigi_warren/status/1436042728052178944?s=21

        Luigi Warren has been spot-on throughout this covid hysteria. The reality is that you and I are part of a “fringe minority”. The vast majority of Americans don’t really care about the unalienable right of Liberty that Jefferson penned in the Declaration of Independence. They would much prefer the fascists (Big Government + Big Business) run it all and give them bread & circuses. We crossed the Rubicon decades ago. We’re now seeing the culminating point of fascist totalitarianism where all levers of power across the 3 branches of government and the leadership of Big Business is controlled by the Party of Davos.

    https://twitter.com/bucksexton/status/1435972810023882752?s=21

    The goal posts have shifted since the original purpose of the vaccines which was to prevent infection & spread have failed. Now the rationale is that it prevents severity of the reaction to infection. Yet the government and big businesses mandate the vaccine. So as in Israel as the infection rate and hospitalization grows despite large percentage of the population vaccinated the new game is regular boosters. Of course championed by Pfizer board member & previous FDA head Scott Gottlieb with every media appearance. No personal financial conflict of interest ever disclosed by the show hosts.

    The vaccine has FAILED its original purpose which was loudly broadcast by Fauci et al not too long ago as preventing infection & spread.

    Yes indeed. Cognitive dissonance is required even for CDC as they change definition of vaccine.

  12. Deap says:

    I believe they also got Webster’s Dictionary to change their definition of “vaccine”, well before CDC officially changed theirs: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/vaccine

    Some pretty sly updating going on here, to match the narrative to the agenda. Life is imitating art: 1984.

    • Barbara Ann says:

      Deap

      I noticed that too. Back in the innocent days of 2019 Webster’s definition of “vaccine” was deemed adequate at a little over 2 lines of text. It is now a monstrous screed which specifically includes mRNA technology and includes what was previously defined as “immunotherapy”.

    Dr. Atlas addresses how “Science” has been complicit in this catastrophe in an article at The Federalist. Click on the orange jotlink for the entire article.

  14. semiconscious says:

    from the above article:

    “When Chan reached her decision, she knew that dozens of countries, including Great Britain, China and Japan, had warned against prematurely raising the warning phase to 6. Hong Kong’s health minister had said: “The system of pandemic levels needs to be revised.” Epidemiologist Mackenzie says, in retrospect: “We need to fine-tune phase 6 so that the severity of the disease is also taken into account.” In May 2009, even the WHO itself considered amending the criteria in the way Mackenzie suggested, but then it changed its mind.

    The warnings faded away. Why? Because regulations are simply regulations? Because health officials decided to err on the side of caution? One thing is clear, though. A party with strong connections in Geneva had a strong interest in phase 6 being declared as quickly as possible: the pharmaceutical industry.

    “The pharmaceutical industry did not influence any of our decisions,” says Fukuda. But in mid-May, about three weeks before the swine flu was declared a pandemic, 30 senior representatives of pharmaceutical companies met with WHO Director-General Chan and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon at WHO headquarters. The official reason for the meeting was to discuss ways to ensure that developing countries would be provided with pandemic vaccine. But at this point in time the vaccine industry was mainly interested in one question: the decision to declare phase 6.

    Everything hung on this decision. At stake was nothing less than a move to supply large segments of the world’s population with flu vaccine. Phase 6 acted as a switch that would allow bells on the industry’s cash registers to ring, risk-free. That’s because many pandemic vaccine contracts had already been signed. Germany, for example, signed an agreement with the British firm GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) in 2007 to buy its pandemic vaccine — as soon as phase 6 was declared. This agreement could explain why Professor Roy Anderson, one key scientific advisor to the British government, declared the swine flu a pandemic on May 1. What he neglected to say was that GSK was paying him an annual salary of more than €130,000 ($177,000)…”

    Larry – took this still from Dr Campbell’s site. It shows the chance of side effects from Covid versus the chance of the same side effects from the jab.

    https://youtu.be/Sk4UoAkLaDU?t=1053

    So obviously the vaccines aren’t the perfect answer but they still seem to edge out the disease itself by some margin as regards side-effects.

    Where we’re still floundering, I reckon, is that I don’t see prophylactics given the same intensive scrutiny as the vaccines. If it turns out, for example, that ivermectin really does help as a prophylactic there’s going to be one hell of a fuss later. Even if it doesn’t turn out that way, we should be looking at its efficacy now instead of continually saying “no solid evidence”.

    • Leith says:

      There are trials for Ivermectin going on now. One in the US at Duke and one in the UK at Oxford. And there are probably many more going on.

      The problem is that some panicked people are taking the Ivermectin version used for deworming cattle and horses. Needless to say a highly concentrated formula intended for a 1200 pound riding horse or a 2,000 pound Hereford bull used by a 120 to 200 pound human will lead to major hospitalization. But even the version used against human parasites could stoke adverse interaction with other meds so should be taken under prescription by an MD.

      • Eric Newhill says:

        Leith,
        If someone is stupid enough to take the entire tube, then they were bound to die from some accident sooner or later. It would be Darwinism in action; about the equivalent of people who are stupid enough to get the experimental jabs full of spike proteins and then “boosters” 3 through infinity because, obvious to anyone with half a brain, the jabs don’t work as promised. Also obviously you scale down the de-wormer dose for your body weight. I’ve taken it that way for many years – and yes, from the horse product sold at Tractor Supply (because I had horses and because I didn’t want to get worms with all the walking around on the farm I owned). If you weigh 200 pounds then divide the 1,200 pound horse dose by 6. This is math even a 3rd grader could do.

        Where do you liberals get all of these silly factoids?

        • Larry Johnson says:

          Thanks for more common sense Eric. As you can see on this discussion thread, sense is not common among some.

        • Leith says:

          Eric,

          Glad you are still upright and were smart enough to formulate your own dose. Are you on bloodthinners or statins?

          The Mississippi State Department of Health has reported that some ivermectin used for livestock ended up hospitalizing some folks. Whether that was due to failure to scale down the dose or from unregulated inactive ingredients is still unknown.

          I’ve never taken veterinary meds and intend not to do so in the future. And never used Mane&Tail shampoo although a former girlfriend swore by it.

  18. scott s. says:

    I don’t much care what the definition of vaccine is. But one objective of the vax campaign was to reach herd immunity (the other I guess reducing hospital admissions). The latter I guess is confirmed (so far) but I don’t see that herd immunity is possible, as the vaccinated seem to be perfectly capable of carrying and transmitting Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2. It remains to be seen what happens with Mu etc.

    “Still, regardless of that, taking the vaccine will greatly improve your chance of avoiding death or life-changing illness. Really, why wouldn’t any mature adult want to do that.”

    Not sure how “mature” I am, but it’s a metaphysical certainty that I’m old — 7.5 decades.

    You exhortations are giving me pause; perhaps you can help me make a life-or-death mature decision.
    — A decision by-the-numbers: 654,000 people are said to have died of Covid
    That’s .2% of the US population.
    This website https://news.google.com/covid19/map?hl=en-US&mid=%2Fm%2F09c7w0&gl=US&ceid=US%3Aen
    informs that 40,634,910 cases of Covid have been reported in US, roughly 12.7% of the population
    ASSUMING Deaths from Covid are included in the reported CASES of Covid, 39,980,910 persons reported having Covid and survived.
    12.5% of Americans reported having Covid and survived;
    00.2% of Americans (are said to) have died of Covid.

    SO FAR, the odds are in my favor: most Americans have not gotten Covid.
    Of the 12.7% of Americans who reported having had Covid, 12.5% are alive today.

    Regarding the .2% who died: Medical practitioners Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Vladimir Zelenko have stated that physicians had been instructed that no therapies were available to treat/cure Covid patients. McCullough said the directed protocol was to send a Covid-complaining patient home until he exhibited serious inability to breathe, at which point, the patient was to be hospitalized and ventilated.
    At that early time, Remdesivir was being used. It appears to be the case that Remdesivir was called for only at a point when a patient had difficulty breathing.

    Physicians were specifically instructed NOT to use hydroxychloroquinine + zinc, and NOT to use Ivermectin. Numerous medical experts are being given media platforms to warn against use of HCQ + zinc and also Ivermectin. I learn from these physicians that it is extremely difficult to obtain the medicines that in some places and in other times were readily available OTC at a minimal cost.
    Just an hour or two ago, Joe Biden called “so-called doctors” who promoted such treatments “conspiracy theorists.”

    But Dr. Zelenko has used those therapies, successfully, for thousands of sufferers from Covid.

    SO:
    — My chances of catching Covid are slim.
    — My chances of dying from Covid are even slimmer.
    — If I DO catch Covid, there are inexpensive remedies that can treat the disease, without requiring hospitalization.

    ON THE OTHER HAND, you say that a “mature adult should take the vaccine.”

    Reports that I read say that MrNA has caused blood clotting, among other harms of a greater or lesser degree.

    Similar to Col. Lang, I had a brain hemorrhage and spent a month in ICU then Rehab. Treatments included about 300 doses of medicines or injections to ensure that my blood did not clot, since a clot will kill me.

    I do not know what the chances are of a blood clot from a vaccine.

    I know that the medical experts and politicians are lying about those statistics, and also, from first-hand experience, I know that front-line physicians have been intimidated into toeing the line dictated to them by those lying politicians. I trusted a man to penetrate my brain to tie up a ruptured blood vessel, to drill a hole in my skull to drain excess fluid, to prescribe a program of intensive care, and a regimen to teach me to walk and talk again. But he has let it be known that he cannot act on his own knowledge and expertise regarding Covid vaccine; if he does not follow the guidance of his certifying or insuring agencies, he could be barred from practice.

    Each year for the last decade and more, 17 million Americans have been diagnosed with cancer, and each year, about 600,000 of them die.
    I don’t want to bore you with my medical situation, but I was one of those 17 million Americans. I’m living with the scars and with the possibility of a recurrence. Neither CDC nor FDA nor anyone that I am aware of has long-term research on the effect of MrNA on a body that has been dosed with cancer-remediating agents.

    Some months ago I heard a medical entrepreneur (that is, a medical doctor who does not practice medicine but who invests in research and development) explain that Warp Speed succeeded as it did because a. the Federal government threw billions of dollars into research and development; and b. there were R and D labs and entrepreneurs prepared to receive the funding since they had been researching cures for cancer for many years. He said that “it was becoming increasingly difficult to find investors” in cancer research, so the switch to Covid research, with the promise of very large sums of federal dollars, was a boon to the community he represents.

    It’s the Benjamins.

    Given the chances of dying from Covid; from cancer; from a stroke brought on by vaccine, I think the odds of dying from Covid are least, and the odds of dying from a clot-induced stroke are greatest.
    That’s my mature decision.

    I’ve tried to be mature to the point of pompous.

    What I really want to say is what the f&$% gives you the right to impugn anyone’s “maturity” for making a decision based on his own circumstances?

    It should be clear to many that the Fauci engineered scamdemic had a purpose. Dunno if it was planned. In any case it has been used very effectively by western “democracies” and the constitutional republic of the USA to demonstrate that liberty is not what is endowed by the Creator but given by governments to those that comply to their diktats. Of course the fascist leadership are exempt. Exhibit A: Gavin Newsom.
