My old college classmate David Leonhardt becomes (as far as I know) the first Times reporter to acknowledge the two great realities of Covid in his VERY widely read morning newsletter:
ONE: The vaccines don’t work so good.
TWO: Covid is not dangerous to healthy kids.
“So low as to be difficult to quantify.”
“SO LOW AS TO BE DIFFICULT TO QUANTIFY.”
Yes, Covid’s risk to healthy children is so low as to be difficult to quantify.
Shout it from the rooftops, people.
And wish Dave luck today.
Telling the truth about Covid at the Times is a risky proposition.
"China claims that the Corona virus came from an old bat, but Pelosi denies having been involved."
I read this piece this morning & wondered are parents listening? The mass psychosis about needing the jab for children and pregnant women is truly frightening! I am so alarmed! The wall to wall media coverage of the need to “vaccinate” has many people convinced it is the only way “back to normal!” Many People are so convinced that they will do anything! But those of us who are questioning and waiting are scaring the establishment so badly, that mandates have become the way to make the rest of us fall in line! This is shocking! UNBELIEVABLE! I question how we can stop this. Almost everyone I know personally have gotten the jab! They do not want to hear anything bad about it! They become angry if you question it! Mass Media/ Mass Psychosis!🥺😫
Some recent quotes from your dear friend David:
"Immunization mandates aren't new. One helped win the American Revolution (yeah, we're still doing this."
"COVID's partisan pattern is growing more extreme," from the article, "Red COVID."
" While the Delta variant is a problem, vaccine hesitancy and skepticism and opposition is a bigger problem."
...I'd rather not "wish Dave luck today." I'd rather wish Dave kiss my white ass.
So the people who sign the people who sign his paycheck's paycheck are deciding to take another tack to calm down the apparent groundswell of ordinary people hating them, and figured, "let's start drawing down COVID so they'll listen when we start talking about climate lockdowns."
Unless someone admits their previous statements are WRONG, Alex, suddenly contradicting your consistent narrative doesn't read to me as stunning and brave, it reads as new marching orders or tacking with the wind.
Fuck "Dave." Let's go Brandon.
Unfortunately, David Leonhardt uses this SAME article to say that (notwithstanding his other comments0 workplace vaccine mandates are justified. WTF?? In an article that acknowledges the vaccines don't work (finally!), there is total logical disconnect by Leonhardt on a sane path forward. Unjabbed kids enjoy far better risk-profile status on COVID than their jabbed grandparents... and so do unjabbed 45-year-olds! How about the rest of us (not in the high-risk elderly group) that apparently (per Leonhardt) don't get to opt out of the mass self-inflicted biological experimentation gone wrong?
Unfortunately it will not stop them to mandate vaccines for kids. Common sense was the first casualty of covid.
Another ray of sunshine. That and Abbott finally stepping up to the plate. And the lovely SWA employees! LETS GO BRANDON!
Mandate nonsense is steadily crumbling. I'm holding out against my employer waiting for the foundation of this ridiculous movement to fade. Ultimately, I may get fired. We need more of this type of data published by MSM to rouse the folks still trying to ride the fence. If Biden's numbers go any lower, his handlers may back off. Probably not ...
Here are the really frightening lines in that NYT report, "All of which raises a thorny question: Should young children be vaccinated? I know some readers will recoil at the mention of that question, but I think it’s a mistake to treat it as unmentionable. There is not the scientific consensus about vaccinating children that there is about adults." So large numbers of NYT readers operate on the premise that once there is a "scientific consensus" then putatively dissident views become unmentionable? Who are these people? Have they never studied science or the history of science?
Dave missed the other elephant in the room re: kids & injections. The injections are FAR MORE DANGEROUS to children than the virus. I actually believe this is the case for most demographics, but since we're talking about kids, I'll leave it there.
Too late for us. We're picking a nice school in a nice red state for next year. Governor Newsom can eat my shorts.
Oh but he mandated a gender neutral toy section while all the CA farmland is crumbling into a dust bowl. What a douche.
Of course the sheeple who want vaccine and mask mandates, including children, get mad when challenged. It's because they think they are morally superior and when they find out that the vaccine could actually be risky for their kids (and unnecessary), their self image of being compassionate and intelligent crumbles.They are unable to face the fact they may actually have caused harm physically and emotionally. Not to mention that they were the products of bad parenting themselves and were never told they were wrong. Everybody gets a trophy society creates a bunch of self absorbed people who can't think critically of their own actions.
But he still says that he will vax his kids ANYWAY in the newsletter! Makes no sense!
This article actually angers me. Alex, did you even read it? Your buddy Dave presents compelling evidence that the vaccine isn’t protecting the sick and elderly (and maybe if that demographic was actually included in the abbreviated trials, they’d have known that, but I digress…), and unvaccinated children are at virtually little to no risk from Covid. Dave then goes on to say that “if I had young children, I would vaccinate them without hesitation.” “IF” is the operative word here. It seems Dave needs to throw that statement in as a means to appease the management, but he is not actually going to have to make that decision to put his children’s health at risk and deal with whatever consequences follow. That’s a pretty big “if.”
In my opinion, Dave only accomplishes to weaken his prior arguments; he's essentially ignoring the real data he just presented by reinforcing the NYT/MSM/governmental narrative once again: disregard the facts, and get vaccinated at any cost. No sane parent would put an experimental drug in their children when the risk of the vaccine (known & unknown) far exceeds the risk of the disease itself. Immunocompromised Granny has a lot more things to worry about than just one respiratory virus called Covid.
The sad part is that children (under 18) have already received and died from the jab. The lying scum have hidden that information, so we can be guaranteed that future deaths from the jab will be hidden. Try convincing the woke otherwise; a waste of breath.
And again why is nobody making a fuss about how Vitamin D may have a huge impact on Covid survivability.
Vitamin D Insufficiency May Account for Almost Nine of Ten COVID-19 Deaths https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33260798/
Note, that's from the NIH, people.
So where are the PSAs to take a Vitamin D supplement? It's a no-harm but apparently great benefit thing but all you hear are stuff about how it is wrong not to take the vax.
It's almost enough to make you believe in conspiracy theories.
This is certainly good news.
But I also remember an NYT article about a year ago questioning the accuracy of the PCR test, and correctly noting that they were over counting Covid cases.
Never withdrawn, but you can see how much impact that tiny sliver of accidental journalism had too.
The NYTimes is in the slow group but better late than never. Too late though for all the NPR listening legions who already jabbed their 10 year old with an adult dose.
The open minds of the leftists will not be changed. They will frog march their children into the needle anyway.
If you get a chance, tell David Leonhardt that getting it right a year and a half too late shows cowardice, not courage. And BTW, Trump Won.
I get the morning newsletter and saw the article. I am constantly challenging people against putting the "experiment" into their kids. Dr. Scott Atlas said this during his interview on the American Thought Leaders podcast: “To me, it’s unconscionable that a society uses its children as shields for adults. Children do not have a significant risk from this illness… Are we [as] a society, a civilization … going to inject our children with an experimental drug that they don’t have a significant benefit from, to shield ourselves?”
Long story short, NY Times ‘report’ is not ‘news’. It’s been discussed for months outside MSM based on ACTUAL science. Yet Berenson and others who dared to discuss it were cancelled and demeaned. And there is no attempt to ‘clear the record’ and admit they were wrong to cancel and demagogue. Those good Americans are just left to smolder in the burnt earth of MSM cronies.
meanwhile, it looks like COVID may have wiped out influenza, which apparently is not unprecedented historically (https://eugyppius.substack.com/p/the-disappearance-of-influenza). if that is in fact the case, and if it's true that COVID is less dangerous to kids under 17 than common cold and flu (it almost certainly is), then KIDS ARE SAFER FROM RESPIRATORY ILLNESS TODAY THAN THEY WERE PRE-COVID! yet we mask them at schools, force them to quarantine, cancel their social events and agitate for forced failed, experimental, myocarditis inducing vaccinations??? we're in bizarro land guys.
I think what is missing in the data is how many jabbed elderly are dying in a few months after the jab. Our local paper is FILLED with obits for the 70-90 ages, and I know a few who were doing fine until jabbed and then they just slowly slid down the cliff to death.
I'm with the guy in the comments who says Leonhardt needs to admit that he was wrong in previous articles he wrote. Otherwise I think this will just skate by the cult minds who subscribe to NYT.
Tell the truth, or at least don't lie.
The more this is done the easier time we'll have in righting the ship.
But the rest of the article is all about vaccinations that need to be done to everyone. The author say he would vaccinate his eligible children with no hesitation. He contradicts himself, states the facts about children then says he would still do it….
"That's different from what the initial vaccine data suggested."
How many times did you point out that the trials deliberately excluded old and at risk people? Of course the real world was going to be different.
October 07, 2021
"The fact is, this has been a pandemic of the unvaccinated. The unvaccinated overcrowd our hospitals, overrunning emergency rooms and intensive care units. The unvaccinated patients are — are leaving no room for someone with a heart attack or in need of a cancer operation and so much more because they can’t into the ICU. They can’t get into the operating rooms.
The unvaccinated also put our economy at risk because people are reluctant to go out. And think about this: Even in places where there is no restriction on going to restaurants and gyms and movie theaters, people are not going in anywhere near the numbers because they’re worried they’re going to get sick." ~ Joe Biden.
Let's Go Brandon.
Public sentiment is turning. I feel it. It’s taken way too long but it’s not too late to turn this mess around. Everyone needs to speak out and act out. Reclaim reality.
Also, jabbing the children to protect the elderly—with an experimental medical product still in trials—is clearly irrational.
I read the piece but at the end he stills says … “IF I had young children, I would vaccinate them without hesitation.”
I don’t know… yes I guess it is good news for a NYT article to finally admit something like this but clearly it makes no difference.
Maybe if he actually had kids he would rethink that position.
It is so very disturbing to even think about injecting this substance into the children or pregnant women. No one has a clue as to what Long Term effects these children and babies may suffer. This is SHOCKING ! It disturbs me greatly ! Why is this not allowed to be discussed ? hmmm Are people so lazy they won't even do any research at all ?
This headline from ZeroHedge pretty much sums it up.....
"From '15 Days To Slow The Spread' To Dragging Thousands From Their Jobs Over Vaccine Mandates"
We Have Lost Our Way As A Nation !
Even some on the NYT see the truth which is amazing. Good for him. Let's see the pushback from other branches of the DNC controlled media. Not to mention the Biden Administration.
It’s probably just a random coincidence but all of the last 10 or so cases of COVID I have heard about have all happened to vaccinated people.
Yes, but his article also encourages the elderly to get the boosters & he would not hesitate to vax his kids if he had any. That’s easy to say when you don’t have kids. But in either case, he is still promoting the poison….
This entire vaccine program is ridiculous and dangerous. The facts are emerging. The vaccines are far less effective than advertised, and they always were. The people at greatest risk from the virus benefit far less than advertised. The vaccines are far more dangerous than anyone let on.
I'll start with the Clausen study appearing in Trends in Internal Medicine. Dr. Clausen reexamined the three vaccine trials using a stronger endpoint "all cause severe morbidity" instead of the far weaker symptomatic case. He found all three vaccines had more severe events in the vaccinated control group than the unvaccinated. You say why "all cause severe morbidity"? Because cyanide would be the most effective cancer therapeutic known otherwise. After all, no one who takes cyanide dies of cancer.
Then there are various studies analyzing the VAERS data. All show significant vaccine risk. Correlation doesn't equal causation, but there is a curious temporal relationship in the VAERS data. 37% of all reported vaccine deaths occur within 3 days of receiving the jab. Between VAERS, UK yellow card system, and EUdraVigilance over 45,000 deaths were reported so far.
A study out of Israel examined an outbreak in a hospital with over 96% vaccinated. Among the 42 outbreak cases, 38 were fully vaccinated. One had one jab. Three weren't vaccinated. Five of the vaccinated died. None of the unvaccinated died. The population was generally older with comorbidities. If the vaccines aren't helping the elderly with comorbidities, what's the point really?
And yet Leonhardt still advocates for vaccination of the elderly based on the assertion that it improves survival rate for those who develop Covid-19 (I doubt the truth of that for *all-cause mortality* at one year post-full-vaccination, but I digress).
Why have I never seen a risk analysis for any age group, but particularly for 60+ or 65+, that *includes* risk reduction due to use of MATH+ or other Ivermectin-inclusive prophylaxes/therapies for their affects on absolute risk of long Covid or death?
It should be easy to stratify: Unvaccinated, no intervention; Unvaccinated; MATH+ (or similar); Vaccinated with mainstream treatment; and Vaccinated, MATH+ (or similar) treatment.
I know why no mainstream source would crunch the numbers, but someone from FLCCC or elsewhere among the sane really ought to graphically depict how insane it is to make vaccination the singular approach to surviving a pathogen that was never very dangerous ***and for which effective treatments exist***.
Yup. A bunch of kiddos in my area are getting Covid. All of them pass through it without much. Most wouldn’t even know they were sick if they didn’t have to get tested to go back to school. No one under 30 has died in my county of 500,000 people from the Covid.
That being said, I do know just as many older people who died from Covid who were vaxxed vs not vaxxed. I’m talking like people in their 80s/90s. The vaxx does not help a majority of them. Which is who we were most trying to protect.
Really Alex? Sorry, unimpressed by this article, as it highlights a couple of truths and then mostly returns to media/govt talking points. The writer continues to push the untruths about unvaxxed more likely to transmit than vaxxed and how mandates at the workplace are justified, along with vaxxing his own kids. None of those are logical conclusions based on the truths originally highlighted. Apparently, he writes out of both sides of his pen. That’s not courage.
In the states/areas that are reporting it, anywhere from 20% to 40% of all new severe COVID cases are in the vaccinated. In the areas where the data is showing 20% the info is older, usually from August. The worst case scenario is Vermont where 76% of all COVID deaths in September were in the fully vaccinated.
Eyes are opening.
"Covid’s risk to healthy children is so low as to be difficult to quantify" So how does he justify needing to jab these kid's with an experimental drug with that has more risk than reward and no idea of long term consequences.
It appears that the risk of the vaccine,far under reported, in children ,is far greater than the risk of this engineered virus.(see PeterDacsas video bragging about how easy it is to graft on to a “backbone” and produce a deadly virus) Myocarditis is NOT like the alleged electrical changes with HCQ,rare and NOT symptomatic,so, once again,they lie to us to continue the charade.
Please get back to me when the number of Covid deaths in children equal the number of kids shot and killed in US. https://www.foxnews.com/us/more-kids-shot-chicago-died-covid-2021
Good to see some truth in reporting. Next up the value of naturally acquired immunity.
Go Dave! We need more brave people to come forward and speak the truth on Covid. If more reporters will come forward and tell the real story behind this scamdemic, perhaps these forced vax mandates will wain away just like the efficacy of the Gene therapy treatments.
Let’s go Brandon!
Walk in through Southern Border free everything, no passports , come legally make sure you have vax
Not good enough.
Promulgates two unsound rationales for child vaccinations. The first is immoral. The second is illogical.
1. “I’m worried kids would be vectors for vulnerable grandparents” aka “Children should be human shields for old people”
2. “Longterm covid infection risks are unknown…THerEfoRe longterm vaccine risks are less scary”
Both are still simply just rationalizations that mask the real reason that people will inject their children with these potentially profoundly damaging treatments that are not adequately tested:
Cowardice. Fear of ostracism. And wanting an easy life.
I don’t buy the “stupidity” and “ignorance” excuse anymore.
I used to wonder why less than 1% of Germans resisted. Now, I understand why fewer than 1% of my friends are worth keeping.
Anthony Fauci is a Humanist. He proudly accepted the Humanist of the Year for 2021.
Humanism is the religion of the Anti-Christ in Revelation 13. What a coincidence!
