Good morning and Happy Friday, C&C! We have a LOT of news in your roundup today: the FDA “strictly limits” the safe and effective J&J vaxx; does the timing show a link to the hepatitis outbreak?; the Altantic doubles-down on experts; a study on excess mortality on Cyprus links to the jabs; the CDC’s troubling excess mortality report in the US; Ontario’s new hospitalization report is bad for jabs; Tennessee passes a bill guaranteeing equal treatment for unvaxxed with natural immunity; news about Musk’s plans for Twitter; and President Bush says something extra bizarre about Zelensky in the Minority Report.
🗞*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
💉 Yesterday, the FDA “strictly limited” the use of Johnson & Johnson’s safe and effective adenovirus-based covid vaccine. The New York Times reported the breaking story in an article headlined “Citing Safety Concerns, F.D.A. Further Limits J.&J. Covid Vaccine.”
The new rules limit the use of J&J to adults who cannot get Pfizer’s or Moderna’s shot, or for whom those shots are not “clinically appropriate,” explained the FDA, citing safety concerns about the safe and effective drug. In a statement, Johnson & Johnson said the FDA’s action reflected the already-known risk of “rare but serious” blood-clotting side effects, not any new data on the rate at which it occurs.
According to yesterday’s FDA announcement, there are now sixty (60) reports of blood-clotting disorders, including only six (6) deaths, after taking the safe and effective drug. The FDA is on it! They’re following the science and squelching a potentially dangerous drug after alertly identifying a few safety signals out of all the noise of millions of injections! What a great agency.
I just want to remind everyone at this point that the government agencies and politicians and experts PROMISED, over and over, that the drugs were COMPLETELY safe and effective and that there was NO CHANCE of any long-term problems. It was ESTABLISHED SCIENCE. So established, in fact, that you could get banned from Twitter if you even QUESTIONED vaccine safety, because only maniacal conspiracy theorists raised questions about vaccine safety that might create vaccine hesitancy in the less-well-informed.
And of course, what the Times didn’t say was that the 60 cases and 6 deaths are all old reports, having occurred way back in 2021. That’s what J&J was alluding to when it noted the new limitations weren’t based on any “new data.” So what took so long? Is it possible that there is some DIFFERENT reason for the limitations?
💉 The timing of the FDA’s limitation of J&J’s adenovirus-based, safe and effective shot is especially interesting because it occurs during a mysterious outbreak of an adenovirus-based fulminant hepatitis in children.
According to a recent study of the hepatitis outbreak in Scotland, out of 13 pediatric cases of acute liver failure, NONE had any underlying immunodeficiency. This is a mystery, because historically, pediatric hepatitis cases have only shown up in immune-deficient patients. But unlike all the previously published reports of adenovirus hepatitis, none of the new cases had any underlying immunodeficiency. More puzzling, the majority of affected children had NO FEVER. Make a note of that.
Only 5 of the 13 cases had a recent positive covid test. At least one of the cases was in a ten-year-old, dispelling the theory that the kids are immune deficient because lockdowns prevented normal childhood exposure to the bugs, because children are expected to have full exposure to adenoviruses by age 8, and so the ten-year old breaks the theory.
In a May, 2022 CDC report about the hepatitis outbreak in Alabama, the agency noted “all patients received negative test results for [hepatitis] antibodies … suggesting that infections were likely not acute but rather potential low-level reactivation of previous infections.”
Fascinating. In other words, the kids didn’t have any antibodies for hepatitis. Their immune systems aren’t fighting whatever it is, which is also consistent with the Scottish report saying that the kids didn’t have fevers — i.e., no immune response. Sounds immunodeficient.
The CDC’s comment suggesting a “potential low-level reactivation of previous infections” means that the kids may be dealing with an adenovirus already in their bodies from an old exposure that was — somehow — reactivated, but their immune systems don’t see it now, for some reason, because it was already handled years before and they have been living with the attenuated virus just fine. So far.
Think about shingles. It’s being “reactivated” a lot, too.
Hints about links between the vaccines and hepatitis have been popping up in the journals for the last six months or so, and not just with J&J. In September, the Journal of Autoimmunology published a study titled, “Acute autoimmune-like hepatitis with atypical anti-mitochondrial antibody after mRNA COVID-19 vaccination: A novel clinical entity?”
In November, the Journal of Hepatology published a letter titled, “The mRNA COVID-19 vaccine – A rare trigger of autoimmune hepatitis?”
In that letter, researchers noted that prior vaccines have caused autoimmune diseases: “As with other autoimmune diseases associated with vaccines the causality or casualty factor will prove difficult to tease apart and should not distract from the overwhelming benefits of mass COVID-19 vaccination. But it does beg the question of whether or not these individuals should receive the second dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.”
Finally, late last month, the Journal of Hepatology published a pre-print study titled “SARS-CoV-2 Vaccination Can Elicit a CD8 T-Cell Dominant Hepatitis.”
The study’s conclusion: “COVID19 vaccination can elicit a distinct T cell-dominant immune-mediated hepatitis with a unique pathomechanism associated with vaccination induced antigen-specific tissue-resident immunity requiring systemic immunosuppression.”
Gosh. What should we do? Are we still following the science anymore? It’s so hard to keep up with the rules.
I also note without comment that, according to Moderna’s November 2021 update, the drugmaker has been working on a new mRNA drug to treat… autoimmune hepatitis.
What does this all mean?
One possibility that could explain what we’re seeing is that the attenuated vaccine virus found in the safe and effective J&J shot could possibly be recombining with a similar latent virus in the human host, and instead of staying deactivated, it is becoming active and infectious. This mechanism is not unknown, it has been seen historically with other attenuated-virus vaccines. But if this is true, it would be MUCH WORSE with this adenovirus, because the dormant virus would be combining with the genetically-modified attenuated adenovirus WITH SPIKE PROTEIN ATTACHED.
This could lead to something like what April’s study in the Journal of Hepatology clinically referred to as “a unique pathomechanism” of disease. In other words, something we’ve never seen before. Something mysterious and baffling.
If this bears out, if the vaccines ARE recombining with latent viruses to produce new kinds of novel spiked variants of existing diseases, the covid vaccine experiment would be the greatest public health disaster of all time. Creating new types of Frankenstein spiked viruses, especially in kids, could not ever be morally justified by whatever murky benefits the covid vaccines might have produced. Just saying. Don’t cancel me.
In fact, it would be a public health disaster of such wild and unprecedented proportions that it might justify a wild and unprecedented distraction like, say, publishing a draft of a controversial Supreme Court opinion. Wouldn’t it?
🔥 The Atlantic published an story this week laughably headlined, “Following Your Gut Isn’t the Right Way To Go,” with a subheadline, “The experts had a rough year. We still have to trust them.”
Hahahahaha! The experts had a rough year! You don’t say.
The post is already long, so I won’t bother mocking the article’s lame argument that we should keep blindly believing whatever the ‘experts’ tell us. Trust me, it was not convincing.
🔬 The Journal Cureus just published a new peer-reviewed study titled “Mortality in Cyprus Over the Period 2016-2021”.
The researchers looked at all-cause mortality in Cyprus from 2016 through 2021 and compared higher excess mortality to the jab rollout. Guess what they found? The researchers concluded:
The substantial increase in mortality in Cyprus in 2021 is not entirely explained by COVID-19 deaths and is parallel to the concurrent vaccination campaign. This concerning observation should be comprehensively investigated by the National and European public health authorities to identify and address the underlying causes.
The first table, Table 1 (shown above for Substack readers), shows a SUBSTANTIAL increase in mortality in Cyprus’ general population during the second, third, and fourth quarters of 2021 when compared to 2020: a 5.9% decrease in the first quarter, 7.1% increase in the second quarter, 31.6% increase in the third quarter, and 11.7% increase in the fourth quarter.
The researchers don’t think it’s covid:
Therefore, the worrying increase of 9.7% of all-cause mortality in 2021 does not appear to be explained entirely by COVID-19 deaths. … Overall, the findings of our analysis are worrying regarding the year 2021, demonstrating a substantial, statistically significant, elevation in mortality from all causes in the general population, especially during the third and the fourth quarters of 2021. At this stage, in the absence of granular data, we are not able to attribute the increase to specific causes.
Finally, they reiterated that the excess deaths appeared to be statistically correlated with the jabs:
Excluding the reported number of deaths from COVID-19, we observed an increase in the total mortality from all causes in Cyprus, especially in the third and the fourth quarters of 2021 … a phenomenon which coincides chronologically with the parallel vaccination campaign.
🔥 The CDC’s Week 16 “Underlying Cause of Death” Mortality Rate for the US shows that we are also experiencing historically high levels of excess mortality.
🔥 And, Ontario’s latest covid hospitalization report shows that the vast majority of hospitalizations and ICU admissions are in the vaccinated. The May 4th, 2022, report says of patents in ICU, 30 were unvaccinated, 5 were partially vaccinated, and 81 were fully vaccinated cases.
Of merely hospitalized covid patients, 239 were unvaccinated, 66 were partially-vaccinated, and 1,050 were fully vaccinated.
The safe and effective vaccines were supposed to prevent serious illness. That’s what they promised! At least, that’s what they promised after their promise that it would prevent infection fell through. But as the Atlantic said, we still have to trust them, right?
🔥 A Tennessee bill (HB1871) passed this week. It provides equal status for people with natural immunity to covid for all legal purposes. It provides that natural is immunity defined as prior infection, immune protection from prior infection is “at least” as protective as receiving a vaccine, and there is no rational reason to treat someone with natural immunity differently from someone with vaccine-induced immunity.
🔥 CNBC reported sources told it that Elon Musk expects to serve as temporary CEO of Twitter after the deal closes.
Musk also recently wading into the public health debate. In April, he tweeted “Next, I am buying the World Health Organization. Whoops, I forgot they already sold out to the highest bidder.” He means Bill Gates.
🚀 *THE MINORITY REPORT* 🚀
🔥 The Hill reported a story yesterday headlined “George W. Bush, Zelensky have virtual meeting.” It reports that President George W. Bush said he’d met (on Zoom) with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The former president called Zelensky, “the Winston Churchill of our time.”
Specifically, Bush said in a statement, “I was honored to spend a few minutes talking with President Zelenskyy – the Winston Churchill of our time – this morning. I thanked the President for his leadership, his example, and his commitment to liberty, and I saluted the courage of the Ukrainian people.”
I don’t think George Bush knows much about Winston Churchill. Just saying.
Have a fabulous Friday! I’ll see you guys back here tomorrow for the weekend report.
