AAPS Supports the Right of Medical Workers and Others to Decline COVID-19 Vaccination

The various available vaccines likely have different adverse effect profiles

From the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons:

“Due to the Joint Statement by various organizations that all “health care and long-term care employers” should impose a requirement to receive “the COVID-19 vaccine” on all their workers, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) declares that all human beings have the right to liberty, which they do not forfeit when they serve the sick or the disabled. The ethical commitment to protect others does not require workers to surrender their bodily integrity and self-determination and accept “the” intervention dictated by a governmental or quasi-governmental authority.

“As around half the population has received injections permitted under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), which by federal law cannot be coerced, variant strains of SARS-CoV-2 have been proliferating, and hospitalizations and deaths are increasing, not diminishing as one would expect in an effective vaccination campaign. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated persons are succumbing. Reports of post-injection death or long-term disability to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) are reaching unprecedented levels.

“Medical interventions are rarely completely safe or effective, and risks and benefits differ in individual patients and differing circumstances. Achieving a premature stamp of approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)—premature because studies are not scheduled to be complete until the end of 2022—does not confer safety or effectiveness. FDA-approved products have frequently been withdrawn in the past.

“The Joint Statement recognizes only a medical exemption, and omits mention of a religious exemption though many workers object to receiving these products based on their religious beliefs….”

COVID-19: Pfizer Vaccine Failed to Prevent Death in Six-Month Study

Alea iacta est

I ran across a pre-print placebo-controlled scientific study looking at results of Pfizer-BionTec vaccination over the course six months. The primary take-home point for me is that the vaccine did not prevent death. Mysteriously, the study authors didn’t discuss the lack of death prevention by the vaccine; I found the data in Figure 1. The vaccine did prevent severe COVID-19 disease.

The scientific name for this particular vaccine is BNT162b2.

Remember that Big Pharma and the CDC have been telling us since November 2020 that the COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective (~90% or better) in preventing severe disease and death.

The study at hand looked at 22,000 folks who got two doses of the vaccine and another 22,000 who got a saline placebo. There were 16 deaths in the vaccine group, 15 in placebo.

Thirty-one participants met the CDC’s definition of severe COVID-19; 30 of these were in the placebo group. So the odds of developing severe COVID-19 over six months if not vaccinated were 0.136%. Or one in 735. (Tell me if my math is wrong.) I fully expect the odds are higher if elderly, lower if young.

Among the vaccinated, 77 developed COVID-19. The placebo group had 850 cases. The report doesn’t state a definition of a “COVID-19 case.” I presume a positive PCR nasal swab and one or more of the usual symptoms. Maddeningly, when the mainstream media mentions a case count, the number may include folks with a positive PCR swab but no symptoms.

Most participants were enrolled between August and October 2020. The U.S. had a major spike in cases in January 2021. The data cut-off date for this study was March 31, 2021, so many of the participants had significant exposure. Median age for both groups was 51. 76% of participants were in the U.S.

The authors note that the risk of developing COVID-19 in the vaccinated tended to rise over time. Vaccine effectiveness declined about 6% every two months. A booster vaccination might be recommended at some point. Pfizer’s CEO revealed this a couple months ago.

For all I know, the linked-to pre-print article above is a hoax. These data are not going to help Pfizer sell more vaccine! If the pre-print is legit, I assume Pfizer was somehow compelled to publish the results.

This preprint reports new research that has not been certified by peer review and should not be used to guide clinical practice.

Hoax or Not: National Guard Enforcing Vaccination?

Photo by Somchai Kongkamsri on Pexels.com

From The Organic Prepper:

By June 2021, North Carolina residents had National Guard soldiers in full uniform show up at their homes. To my knowledge, Smithfield, North Carolina, is the first region within the United States to perform such measures. You can see video proof here.

Josie Hines was one of many Americans faced with such measures. She had a health official with a clipboard show up at her front door. And guess who was standing behind that health official—three uniformed National Guard soldiers. 

It’s About Time: CDC Eviction Moratorium is Unconstitutional

The rule of law in the U.S. is moribund. From The Tennessee Star:

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that the national eviction moratorium mandated by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is unconstitutional. The court said in its ruling that the matter ultimately needed to be resolved by Congress.

The three-judge panel ruled that the CDC engaged in federal overreach by mandating that tenants who are unable to pay their rent and are in breach of their rental agreements may not be evicted. The CDC had implemented a moratorium in response to millions of people losing their jobs due to governors shutting down their state economies to slow the spread of COVID-19.

COVID-19 Vaccination Indoctrination: A Pre-Planned Psyop?

Have you taken the vaccine yet?

Baron Bodissey at Gates of Vienna argues that the overwhelming push to get us all vaccinated ASAP is a carefully planned and coordinated psychological operation. It’s a long read but worth your time. Some excerpts:


“They really, really, want us to get vaccinated.

“Whom do I mean when I use the word “they”? Well, for starters, there’s the government. All Western governments, in fact, even that of Hungary. “They” also includes the major media, Big Tech, the MSM [mainstream media], the universities and secondary schools, and all major philanthropic organizations. All of them are pushing relentlessly for all citizens to submit to the injection of an experimental medical treatment that uses messenger RNA, and whose long-term side effects are completely unknown.

“For as far back as I can remember, I have never experienced such a relentless full-court press by all social and political institutions in pursuit of a single goal. Perhaps the war effort from 1939-1945 was like this, but I wasn’t alive then, so I don’t know.

“Before I started researching the propaganda push behind the vax, I had never heard of the term “social marketing”. It is an important concept in this dystopian age, so we would all be well-advised to learn more about it. The California STD/HIV Prevention Training Center — which is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and is a joint project of the California Department of Health Services, Sexually Transmitted Disease Control Branch, the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health, and the University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine — gives the following definition of social marketing:

Social marketing is the use of commercial marketing principles and techniques to improve the welfare of people and the physical, social and economic environment in which they live. It is a carefully planned, long-term approach to changing human behavior.


“I bring all this up because of a paper that was published by The National Center for Biotechnology Information, which is part of the National Library of Medicine, which is a branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NIH, as you may recall, is where Dr. Anthony Fauci rules over a little fiefdom known as NIAID, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

“The paper is entitled “Key Guidelines in Developing a Pre-Emptive COVID-19 Vaccination Uptake Promotion Strategy” [pdf]. It was published in August of last year, but I didn’t find it until a few weeks ago.

“It is beyond my level of analytical competence to peel back all the layers of manipulative strategy found in this paper, so I’ll just highlight a few significant points. I recommend reading the whole thing carefully, if you have the time and the stomach to work your way through all the sociological jargon.


“My main conclusion from reading all this is that the “vaccine hesitants” have already lost the propaganda war. It’s done. There’s nothing left but smoking craters and shattered trees. The war is over.

“I am able to think for myself, to a certain extent, and I assume most of my readers are, too. But we are a small minority. The vast majority of the population has been conditioned to take in information from certain acceptable sources and to adopt attitudes and opinions based on what those sources tell them. All major outlets that purvey information — governments, NGOs [non-governmental organizations], the MSM, social media — are already under the control of the pro-vaxers. Collectively they command massive resources, more than enough to hire as many credentialed social marketers as they like.

“And those social marketing experts know how to manipulate the average citizen into thinking exactly what they want him to think.


COVID-19: Frontline Report From Southern California

Somewhere in SoCal?

From Aesop (an emergency department nurse) at Raconteur Report:

COVID is making a small comeback; nothing like last December/January when we WERE being crushed by it. We just got our first cases since February, starting about two weeks ago. And one jackass employee who came to work sick, and exposed an entire department to it, instead of taking sick days….

Our ICU is half-full, because half the nursing staff left or quit after COVID 1.0 due to workload burnout. So half the beds are full, with the normal ICU patients (intubated, post-surgical, heart attacks, strokes, major trauma, etc.). The other half are unstaffed, nightly, because we can’t find replacement ICU nurses at anything less than exorbitant rates, so they are unusable beds. AFAIK, we don’t have a single COVID patient in the ICU, but if we did, it wouldn’t be more than 1 or 2. The bigger problem is that this backs up ICU patients into the ER for days on end, and so new patients can’t get in for hours, even for serious problems.

Our new COVID cases are about a 50:50 split between fully vaxxed, and totally unvaxxed.


I’m not vaxxed, and don’t intend to be in any foreseeable future. I won’t be a beta-test guinea pig for an experimental not-a-vaccine, with questionable safety, and no liability to the makers. And even if they put skin in the game – which none of them have, to date – I can’t sue anyone if I’m dead. N95s and hand washing got me through the last 18 months with frothing fulminant COVID patients at halitosis range just fine; I see no need to change course at this point, come hell or high water. When someone makes an actual vaccine, with absolutely the same level of safety as a flu shot, or tetanus booster, that isn’t a frankenvirus DNA experiment, we can talk. Until then, pass the hand sanitizer, and stay your sick ass over there please.


So far at my little hospital in southern Arizona, we’re not seeing nearly as much inpatient COVID-19 as we did in January. But more than a month ago.

The hospital system I work in is requiring all front line healthcare employees to be vaccinated by November 1. Another major system here is doing the same. We have about five major hospital systems.

Aesop’s experience in SoCal is that “new COVID cases are about a 50:50 split between fully vaxxed, and totally unvaxxed.” I suspect that’s all emergency department cases, not simply those who are admitted. As of July 27, 53% of all Californians are fully vaccinated. This suggests to me that the vaccinations may not be very effective at keeping cases out of the ED. But the vaccines were sold to us from the get-go as preventing ~90% of “serious cases” and death. IIRC, serious cases were defined as those needing inpatient care.

EudraVigilance Tracks COVID-19 Vaccine Adverse Events in Europe

The various available vaccines likely have different adverse effect profiles

The European Medicines Agency publishes reports of adverse reactions to medications at EudraVigilance. This is the closest European equivalent of the U.S. VAERS (vaccine adverse events reporting system) except it covers more than just vaccines. Click here for their European experience, scroll down to letter C then find your favorite COVID-19 vaccine.

Caveats:

The information on this website relates to suspected side effects , i.e. medical events that have been observed following the use of a medicine, but which are not necessarily related to or caused by the medicine.

Information on suspected side effects should not be interpreted as meaning that the medicine or the active substance causes the observed effect or is unsafe to use. Only a detailed evaluation and scientific assessment of all available data allows for robust conclusions to be drawn on the benefits and risks of a medicine. [If this hasn’t been done yet, why not?]

The European Medicines Agency publishes these data so that its stakeholders, including the general public, can access information that European regulatory authorities use to review the safety of a medicine or active substance. Transparency is a key guiding principle of the Agency.

Visit Bayou Renaissance Man for a table of various types of adverse effects reported after the individual vaccines. (I haven’t verified the accuracy of the figures.) To put the numbers in perspective, I’d want to know the total number of Europeans vaccinated.

SWAT Team Enforces Vaccination Mandate

Photo by Somchai Kongkamsri on Pexels.com

The six-man team burst through my door on a no-knock raid at 3 AM.

I was soon blinded and deafened by the flash-bang grenade. No time to reach my gun, which probably saved my life. Fortunately my dogs weren’t with me, or they’d have been shot.

Two of the men pointed AR-15s at me while three held me down and their leader yelled, “Parker, this is your last chance to take the vaccine voluntarily. Will you submit?” My foggy mind raced through the options: take the jab, lose my medical license and livelihood, go to prison, fight and die here now….

“PARKER, THIS YOUR LAST CHANCE. WILL YOU SUBMIT TO THE VAX?”

No….never, you sons’o’bitches!”

A thug immediately stabbed my buttock with a rusty #16 needle and injected the toxic brew.

Then I woke up…in a sweat.

The 1976 Swine Flu Vaccine Debacle

elderly, face mask, surgical mask, corona, epidemic, pandemic, couple
To vaccinate or not vaccinate, that is the question…

Most of you don’t remember the 1976 flu epidemic. Early on, it appeared to be on track to equal the 1918 Spanish Flu death rates. Politicians and public health authorities felt like they better do something, anything, to avert disaster. Their response didn’t work out too well. COVID-19 isn’t the flu, but it’s a viral illness that often looks like the flu clinically.

From Discover magazine:

Vaccines were once thought of as an axiomatic good, a longed-for salvation in the form of a syringe, banishing crippling and deadly infections like polio, smallpox and tetanus. But within the past few decades we have seen the emergence of anti-vaccination movements and a rise in cases of childhood diseases that are entirely preventable with a quick jab to the arm.

Over the past five years, outbreaks of mumps, measles and whooping cough have cropped up throughout the country. And then, of course, there is widespread skepticism among the general public on influenza and the merits of a seasonal flu shot. Even as outbreaks of avian and swine flu have periodically emerged in this country, there are still people who resist vaccination against the flu. This seemingly pervasive opposition to flu vaccination is not without its historical and sociological roots.

Some of the American public’s hesitance to embrace vaccines — the flu vaccine in particular — can be attributed to the long-lasting effects of a failed 1976 political campaign to mass-vaccinate the public against a strain of the swine flu virus. This government-led campaign was widely viewed as a debacle and put an irreparable dent in future public health initiatives, as well as negatively influenced the public’s perception of both the flu and the flu shot in this country.

* * *

But while the World Health Organization adopted a cautious “wait and see” policy to monitor the virus’s pattern of disease and to track the number of emerging infections, President Gerald Ford’s administration embarked on a zealous campaign to vaccinate every American with brisk efficiency. In late March, President Ford announced in a press conference the government’s plan to vaccinate “every man, woman, and child in the United States” (1). Emergency legislation for the “National Swine Flu Immunization Program” was signed shortly thereafter on April 15th, 1976 and six months later high profile photos of celebrities and political figures receiving the flu jab appeared in the media. Even President Ford himself was photographed in his office receiving his shot from the White House doctor.

* * *

The American public can be notably skeptical of forceful government enterprises in public health, whether involving vaccine advocacy or limitations on the size of soft drinks sold in fast food chains or even information campaigns against emerging outbreaks. The events of 1976 “triggered an enduring public backlash against flu vaccination, embarrassed the federal government and cost the director of the U.S. Center for Disease Control his job.”

One aspect of the fiasco was that of the 45 million U.S. residents hastily vaccinated against Swine Flu, 450 developed a severe neurological disorder called Guillain-Barre syndrome.
