In January, popular podcaster Joe Rogan addressed the backlash he received for spreading what many called ‘misinformation’ after Rogan invited several doctors on his show to discuss the risk of the virus and vaccines.
In his response posted to his Instagram account, Rogan explained his issue with the term ‘misinformation’ itself considering so many topics that were considered misinformation last year are now widely considered to be the truth.
“The problem I have with the term misinformation, especially today, is that many of the things that we thought of as misinformation just a short while ago are now accepted as fact,” he said.
“Eight months ago, if you said if you get vaccinated you can still catch COVID and you can still spread COVID — you will be removed from social media … Now, that’s accepted as fact,” he said.
“If you said ‘I don’t think cloth masks work’ you would be banned from social media. Now that’s openly and repeatedly stated on CNN.‘
“If you said, ‘I think it’s possible that COVID-19 came from a lab,’ you’d be banned from many social media platforms. Now that’s on the cover of Newsweek,” he said.
On February 4th, During his show “Real-Time”, late-night host Bill Maher expressed some of the same sentiments as Rogan, explaining how the medical establishment has been constantly putting out false talking points about the virus, the pandemic, and how to fight it.
“A study this week from a professor at Johns Hopkins concluded that the lockdowns we all suffered through had little impact in reducing COVID deaths. Okay, that’s kind of a big one to get wrong,” Maher noted at one point.
Both Maher and Rogan seem to be correct. Not only has the medical establishment been wrong on some of the most important aspects of COVID-19, but they have also worked with media and social media companies to censor experts whose message was contrary to the mainstream narrative.
The Efficacy of the Lockdowns
The Johns Hopkins study that Maher referred to on his showed that the lockdowns the US imposed were useless, reducing mortality by only 0.2%, while also causing a net increase in all-cause mortality.
The study found that lockdowns only reduced COVID-19 death by around 1,000, which is not adjusted for the increased anxiety, obesity, depression, delayed cancer screenings, and drug overdoses among other factors the lockdowns caused.
“While this meta-analysis concludes that lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted,” the researchers wrote. “In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”
According to another study published last year, obesity in the young surged following the lockdowns, and a massive study from the University of California concluded that the lockdowns not only didn’t save any lives but resulted in more deaths than if no lockdowns happened at all.
Other data show there has been a steep rise in child suicide and suicidal ideation, and in just one Las Vegas school district, over a dozen students committed suicide, causing the district to reopen schools early.
At the height of the lockdowns, over 7,000 scientists, virologists, and infectious disease experts recently signed a declaration against lockdown measures, and that lockdown rules in both the United States and the UK would cause “irreparable damage.”
Oxford University professor Dr. Sunetra Gupta was one of the authors of the open letter that was sent with the petition, along with Harvard University’s Dr. Martin Kulldorff and Stanford’s Dr. Jay Bhattacharya.
According to a recent report from the Daily Mail, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the head of the National Institute of Health (NIH) colluded on a way to discredit the group of experts who wrote the ‘Great Barrington Declaration.’
In an October 8 email from Collins to Fauci, the head of the NIH calls the GBD the work of ‘three fringe epidemiologists’ that ‘seems to be getting a lot of attention.’
Collins adds that ‘there needs to be a quick and devastating published takedown of its premises. I don’t see anything like that online yet – is it underway?’
Later in the day, Fauci sent Collins a Wired op-ed that refutes the notion of herd immunity stopping the pandemic.
Collins then sends Fauci an op-ed in The Nation also trashing the GBD.
Turns out the ‘fringe’ scientists are in the majority according to the results of the vast majority of the best studies, and that they were right all along.
Natural and Herd Immunity
A new CDC report which analyzed COVID outcome data from New York and California found that natural immunity was at least six times stronger during the delta wave than vaccination.
This study comes as other major studies have been highlighted which all show similar or even better conclusions.
A study published on medRxiv.org during this period, for example, found that people who have taken both doses of the Pfizer vaccine were 13 times more likely to have a breakthrough infection and were at a vastly greater risk for Covid-19 hospitalization compared to those who were naturally immune.
Harvard Medical School professor Martin Kulldorff, one of the experts who helped author the Great Barrington Declaration, said at the time that lockdowns and vaccine mandates were completely unscientific because natural immunity offers exponentially more protection than vaccines.
“Prior COVID disease (many working-class) provides better immunity than vaccines (many professionals), so vaccine mandates are not only scientific nonsense, they are also discriminatory and unethical,” Kulldorff, a biostatistician, and epidemiologist, observed on Twitter.
During a CNN interview in September of last year, Dr Anthony Fauci was asked about the millions of people who have contracted the coronavirus naturally and now have natural immunity.
Fauci responded saying he had no answer.
As natural immunity was proven over and over again as superior, many Twitter users have pointed back to the time that the World Health Organization changed its definition of ‘herd immunity.’
For as long as the ‘herd immunity’ section existed on the World Health Organization’s website, the WHO defined herd immunity as through natural infection or vaccination.
After the vaccines were approved for emergency use authorization though, the WHO changed the definition on their site to show that herd immunity is achieved only through vaccination.
According to the best available data and most comprehensive estimates, herd immunity was achieved a long time ago.
According to another recent study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, JAMA, approximately 99% of all prior COVID infections resulted in natural immunity with a duration of at least ‘650 days.’
“In this cross-sectional study of unvaccinated US adults, antibodies were detected in 99% of individuals who reported a positive COVID-19 test result, in 55% who believed they had COVID-19 but were never tested, and in 11% who believed they had never had COVID-19 infection. Anti-RBD levels were observed after a positive COVID-19 test result up to 20 months, extending previous 6-month durability data.”
The case is closed it seems, even undercover videos show multiple scientists working for pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, confirming that people who are naturally infected with COVID-19 have a far superior immunity to the virus than the immunity the vaccines allegedly provide.
Hospitalization Numbers are Immensely Overcounted
According to a recent report from Politico, Biden officials trying to recalculate U.S. Covid-19 hospitalizations to ‘get a more accurate sense of Covid’s impact across the country.’
Politico reports that a group of scientists and data specialists is now asking hospitals to separate the number of patients who go to the facility because they have Covid-19 from individuals who go in for other reasons and test positive after being admitted.
According to another report from the Atlantic, 40 to 45 percent of the hospitalizations tallied as COVID hospitalizations among children, were for people who were hospitalized for a different reason entirely.
Additionally, according to an analysis in the same report that covered 50,000 COVID hospital admissions, 48 percent of the people who were hospitalized for COVID, were patients with mild or asymptomatic disease.
Another recent report from the Daily Mail found that a quarter of people in hospitals in England who are being marked as ‘COVID patients’ were also being treated for other illnesses altogether.
Now, several medical examiners, coroners, and scientists are claiming the COVID death numbers are just as, or even more inflated than the hospitalization numbers.
The administration’s goal is to get a ‘more accurate’ sense of Covid-19’s impact across the country and whether the virus is causing severe disease.
The Efficacy of the Vaccines
In September a large study published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) found no discernible relationship between levels of vaccination and COVID-19 case rates.
In that study, scientists investigated the relationship between the percentage of the population fully vaccinated compared to new COVID-19 cases across 68 countries and across 2947 counties in the US.
At the country level, they found that there appears to be no relationship whatsoever between how many people are fully vaccinated and the number of COVID-19 cases.
Following the study in the NCBI, another study covering over 140 countries was published which found a direct causal relationship between an increase in deaths in countries with higher levels of vaccinations.
In fact, the researchers and authors of all of the best studies say the trend line if anything suggests a positive association between countries with a higher percentage of the population fully vaccinated and a higher rate of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations per 1 million people.
The studies point to Israel’s record case and hospitalization rates despite the vast majority of their population being vaccinated and over a quarter of their population having had at least one booster dose.
They also note “the lack of a meaningful association between percentage population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases are further exemplified, for instance, by comparison of Iceland and Portugal.”
The UK is another example that has been used by researchers who aim to alert the public about the inefficacy of the current vaccines.
According to Israeli news reports, Professor Yaakov Jerris, director of Ichilov Hospital’s coronavirus ward, said recently that the real situation in hospitals is the opposite of what many would expect based on what they’ve heard from the media.
“Right now, most of our severe cases are fully vaccinated,” Jerris told Channel 13 News. “They had at least three injections. Between seventy and eighty percent of the serious cases are vaccinated. So, the vaccine has no significance regarding severe illness, which is why just twenty to twenty-five percent of our patients are unvaccinated.”
Speaking at a cabinet meeting on Sunday, he told ministers, “Defining a serious patient is problematic. For example, a patient with a chronic lung disease always had a low level of oxygen, but now he has a positive coronavirus test result which technically makes him a ‘serious coronavirus patient,’ but that’s not accurate. The patient is only in a difficult condition because he has a serious underlying illness.”
In January Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla announced his company began developing a vaccine specific to Omicron. Bourla says the new vaccine is expected to be ready in March when health officials predict the latest wave of the extremely mild variant will already be over.
Speaking during remarks to a J.P. Morgan healthcare conference in January, Bourla also openly conceded that the current vaccines offer “limited if any” protection against contracting current variants of the disease. He then encouraged booster shots.
A number of experts have pointed out the quick-waning efficacy of all of the current vaccines, which nearly every media outlet touted last year as being “100 percent” effective against contracting or transmitting the virus. Many of these experts have been banned by social media companies.
One of the things the mainstream media has yet to admit to is how wrong they are about the efficacy of not just cloth masks, but all masks.
The vast majority of gold-standard scientific research compiled over multiple decades, conclude masks are completely ineffective at preventing the spread of respiratory illnesses.
