The vaccines were experimental. Millions could have been spared the risk if we had been willing to recognize the inherent superiority of innate immunity in the young, and natural immunity in the recovered. There are safe prophylactics against covid that weren't used because repurposed drugs are unprofitable and experimental treatments with EUAs are.

The people are quite clearly rejecting the shots, but that isn't going to stop Big Pharma and their lackies in government from doing everything they can to push the jabs anyway. Notice how nobody on the campaign trail is talking about the jabs and how mandates were wrong?

What does it say about our society that people will line up to receive a jab that not only has no long term safety record but does have a long list of immediate adverse events? Lemmings

Pfizer’s random controlled trial results alone should dissuade anyone from taking it: more people died in the vaccine group than in the control group. And each group had about 22,000 people.

As a doctor, what has defied all logic about the COVID mRNA vaxx is WHAT they picked the mRNA to signal for production. They chose the SPIKE protein, which is the pathogenic portion of virus...and then put it into our own cellular machinery to produce. This seems to only be due to one of two possibilities..

#1-Incredible stupidity

#2-Intention to harm

SURELY there is another portion of the virus that is unique but harmless that could have been directed by cellular machinery to produce.

INSTEAD they picked SPIKE....and our cells did a great job producing it...This spike protein also seems to have some uncanny affinity for cardiac cells WITHOUT the rest of the virus.

WHY would we play Russian Roulette like this?

Either they are colossally stupid or this was intentional....maybe not in a 'we want to kill you' way, but also maybe intentional in a 'let's see what happens' way....you know, mad scientist bullshit.

My daughter changed her major to allied health because the jab was required for clinicals - no exceptions, if you can imagine that. California, of course. She can finish nursing in saner times or at a saner place. She took a tough stand and we’re proud of her for that. With what we new then and what we clearly see now she made the absolute correct decision and she knows that.

Still fighting the last war. I'm not angry anymore, but I'm incensed at what Berenson wrote in his recent Substack: https://alexberenson.substack.com/p/on-the-coming-radicalism-of-donald

Here's his money-shot:

"As one person emailed me, if you’re a Republican, making agencies and the Justice Department creatures of the White House is a wonderful idea, as long as you plan to win every Presidential election for eternity."

I can give that statement some different interpretations- NONE of them lead to a concept of the government bureaucracy being under the control or even under the influence of the public. They do whatever the hell they want. In theory, they're constrained by what the legislature allows through its lawmaking. In reality, they often go beyond what the law allows. To reign them in requires going to court. They have unlimited legal resources, so fighting them in court requires a LOT of $. And staying power. If after years of litigation they lose, there’s no penalty for them. They merely have to stop violating the law. So what do they lose by trying?

Few will even make the effort, so there’s immutable creeping expansion of government power. Over US.

I'm constantly reminded of this from every direction. In Dr. McCullough's Substack today, about a lawsuit brought by some doctors harmed by the FDA’s pronouncements on Ivermectin, he wrote about a couple of legal arguments made by the FDA:

“The FDA says that Courts have no business in reviewing anything they say or do!.

“The FDA asserts that the only recourse that US citizens have about even egregious errors and deceptions by the FDA is through the “political process.” Astounding!”

(The FDA Can Say (and Do) Anything It Wants - https://tinyurl.com/2fy8nf2f)

But Berenson is all good with this. He WANTS the Deep State to be unconstrained. Heaven forbid a President Trump should bring it to heel.

From his Substack writings, he thinks a lot of what the FDA/CDC has done since the Covid outbreak is wrong. Yet from what he wrote, he’s opposed to the exercise of any control by elected officials that would make them stop doing wrong. Can anyone resolve this conflict for me?

I don't know what's in Berenson's heart. Me playing amateur psychologist, it seems there is a limit to how far his reasoning can carry him before his progressive side overcomes and his feelings win out. He hates Trump, and for him that overrides all else.

I’m not here as an antagonist troll. Berenson does a lot of good work. That’s why I pay my money to subscribe. But I don’t allow him to do my thinking for me. There’s a lot he’s just plain wrong about.

Thank you for this. I've been putting off going through a thousand or so covid substack emails to do just this for any remotely curious friend or family member.

Now the last task will be to attach an actual reference to each bullet point.

Thank you for this and to the woman who wrote you: "The truth has no defense against a fool determined to believe a lie" ~Mark Twain. I've had zero success with my family members, but I pass them curated new information - and tell them if I don't and something happens, I wouldn't be able to live with myself. Truth.

Great list. But please add six things.

1. The FDA tried to seal the Pfizer clinical results for 75 years. A federal judge overruled them . Their data disclosed that 1223 deaths occurred and over 1500 different adverse reactions had occurred out of a clinical test group of about 40,000 people. (Neither Safe Nor Effective-pages 39-40-Dr. Colleen Huber)

2. On August 31, 2021, the two top vaccine regulators at the FDA retired suddenly. (Reuters)

3. Pfizer materials identify the vaccine as modRNA not mRNA. (Modified mRNA-Based Vaccines Against Coronavirus Disease 2019-Aline Yen Wang-National Library of Medicine) and https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2023/08/pfizer-biontech-covid-19-vaccine-utilizes-nucleoside-modified/

4. The FDA could not authorize the vaccines for Emergency Usage unless all other treatments for Covid were declared inadequate, non approved and not available. https://www.fda.gov/vaccines-blood-biologics/vaccines/emergency-use-authorization-vaccines-explained.

5. The amount spent on healthcare in the U. S. is twice that of any other nation. The U. S. longevity is 64th in the world. (Previously supplied graph by Alex Berenson)

6 Biden declared by mandate that up to 100 million people in the U. S. (Except illegal immigrants) had to take the vaccine whether they wanted to or not. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/09/us/politics/biden-mandates-vaccines. html https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2023/08/pfizer-biontech-covid-19-vaccine-utilizes-nucleoside-modified/

Okay. Now line up and take those boosters.

You have to just be plain stupid to consider injecting this stuff into a human body. Yeah right "safe and effective"

Expand full comment

So, basically, the mRNA injections aren't fully tested, and what testing they've done has not had encouraging results. To that we can add that once you've been injected with ANY vaccine, it's too late to change your mind.

Fauci ,Walensky, Gruber- all quit-- the people RESPONSIBLE for govt administration and tracking the long term safety and efficacy are nowhere to be found. tell your daughter research sudden death in young vaccinated Young people many are dropping dead left and right from ODD health ailments ( Charlbi Dean, Gwen casten....)NOBODY IS TRACKING LONG TERM EFFECTS!

Good stuff Alex - but you need foot-notes, citations to detailed articles - for each of these things. Nobody will believe any of it without the background information... now many of them won't belive even WITH that - but I'd like to have your sources to back up those statements. I can find them myself with a lot of digging - but since you seem to already have them - help me out here :-)

I would have expected one of the 10 items, especially #5, to point to the dangerous side effects prevalent amoung younger people, like myocarditis amoung young men and the not-so-minor effects on the menstrual process in young women.

Excellent summary. Please do for 2-10 what you did for #1. As a public service and a thank you to your loyal paying subscribers.
