☕️ Coffee & Covid ☙ Monday, April 18, 2022 ☙ FACT CHECKING 🦠
Good news from the airlines, and I fact-check all the original claims about the jabs. You’ll never guess how it turned out.
Happy Monday, C&Cers; I hope everyone enjoyed a joyful and rewarding Easter weekend. It’s Tax Day, again, time to fund some more illicit gain-of-function research and stuff. Apart from an encounter with a snapping turtle with Hillary Clinton’s personality, our holiday was restful and recharging. Starting Thursday, I’ll be traveling, on the road for a four-day medical freedom speaking tour in North and Central Florida.
Today’s roundup includes some good news from the airlines, and I fact-check all the original claims about the jabs. You’ll never guess how it turned out.
🗞*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
✈️ First, good news for Delta employees. Last week, Delta announced it was ending its hated monthly $200 “health” surcharge levied against unvaccinated employees. According to CNBC, Delta president Ed Bastian announced in a call that “any employees that haven’t been vaccinated will not be paying extra insurance costs going forward.”
He also said Delta wants the airline mask mandate to be lifted and that once the mandate officially ends, Delta does not plan to impose its own mandate.
CNBC also noted in the article that United Airlines announced last month it would allow unvaccinated workers who’d received an exemption to return to their regular jobs from unpaid leave, citing dropping Covid cases.
🔥 The censorship dam preventing discussion about negative vaccine effects is beginning to break, and we are learning a LOT more information about the precise mechanisms of injury, when they occur. I decided to organize the most current information for you in a “fact check,” comparing what was originally claimed about the jabs to what we know now.
This is not a jeremiad against the jabs. I’m not suggesting that folks who’ve been jabbed are done for. My only goal is to help inform your decision about taking the next booster, and expose the big fat liars who convinced a lot of people to take these medicines without informed consent. I’m making a wild guess that some people might have chosen differently had they known how LITTLE the public health experts truly understood the risks — however rare — of these novel treatments.
1. We were assured the jabs would shut down infections and achieve herd immunity. “You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations,” Joe Biden famously promised the nation.
Fact check: False. The jabs never provided sterilizing immunity, and now the best data shows negative efficacy, meaning that triple-vaccinated folks appear MORE likely to be infected. You don’t need a link for this one, but if you want a reference, just look to the UK’s March report, which includes a nice table summarizing the current state of affairs.
2. They promised us that the safe and effective mRNA would stay put, captured in the shoulder muscle where it was injected. “It’s safe because it doesn’t travel around the body. All the stimulus your body needs to make antibodies happens right in the shoulder.”
Fact check: False. Studies in animals and more recently in human autopsies have shown mRNA can migrate all over the body. What’s the long-term effect of this? Who knows. It wasn’t studied, Pfizer told everyone the novel therapeutic could not escape the injection site. Worse, FOIA documents obtained in Japan showed that Pfizer DID do preliminary biodistribution studies; at the time they were telling us it didn’t, they knew perfectly well that mRNA did travel.
Even worse, it has now become clear that LOTS of jabs are being administered by incompetent staff who fail to “aspirate” the needle before injecting to make sure they aren’t accidentally shooting mRNA directly into a vein. Mainlined mRNA travels throughout the body even faster, maybe in minutes or hours, and could be the reason why some folks experience sudden and serious adverse events after getting the shots.
3. We were ASSURED that mRNA decayed quickly, within hours. “It’s safe because it is an unstable molecule, and disappears quickly after it’s done its job.”
Fact check: Super false. Studies are finding mRNA in the body up to TWO MONTHS post-injection. While it’s true that mRNA is usually unstable, Pfizer and Moderna “stabilized” their versions using a variety of techniques so that the delicate molecules could survive shipping and storage. They overshot the mark, and the mRNA is NOT disappearing quickly. Remember, mRNA is the thing that teaches cells to make spike protein. It literally infects cells, like a virus, and reprograms them to become spike factories.
Significantly, this is VERY different from a normal Covid-19 infection, where natural spike usually clears after a few DAYS. In the words of one study: “The observed extended presence of vaccine mRNA and spike protein in vaccinee [lymph node germinal centers] for up to 2 months after vaccination was in contrast to rare foci of viral spike protein in COVID-19 patient [lymph nodes]”.

4. They promised us that mRNA was safe because it only targeted the shoulder muscle cells and couldn’t possibly infect organ cells or lymph nodes or other tissues.
Fact check: Totally false, not even close. To trick cells into accepting the mRNA payloads, Pfizer and Moderna encased the molecules in a tiny dab of fat, called a “lipid nanoparticle” (LNP). The LNPs make the tiny mRNAs “promiscuous,” meaning they can infect virtually ANY type of cell, such as the inner lining of veins, called the endothelium.
The big problem with this is that a cell infected by mRNA and shooting out spike proteins will be targeted by the body for destruction, just like any other kind of viral infection. The body doesn’t like cells that aren’t acting right and it targets them for destruction with extreme prejudice. Worse, in order to protect the mRNA from immediate termination by the immune system, the mRNA particles were combined with immuno-suppressant drugs called adjuvants. So for about the first week, while the adjuvants are suppressing your immune response, the mRNA has free rein to infect your cells, whichever ones it can get to.
So the end result is that jabbed people have lots of cells “infected” with mRNA and the body tries to destroy all those cells, which the CDC euphemistically calls “clearing them from the body.” Unlike natural Covid spike that only targets a few types of cells (those with ACE-2 receptors), mRNA payloads can infect ANY type of cell. At that point, the body has a HUGE job to “clear” itself of all these mRNA-infected cells, which may explain increased levels of autoimmune problems we’re seeing in some vaccine recipients.
5. Fauci et al promised us that it was CONCLUSIVELY DETERMINED that the mRNA would NOT infect reproductive organs. They said it was COMPLETELY SAFE for expectant mothers and couples who wanted kids. No possible way it could affect reproduction, they said.
Fact check: 100% false. There is now evidence finding LNPs, mRNA and vaccine-induced spike in ovaries, testes, and most other organs and systems involved in reproduction. Recently-disclosed Pfizer documents (the Japan FOIA) provide evidence that the company knew this during its preliminary animal studies: “Also, mainly the liver, spleen, adrenal glands and distribution to the ovaries was observed, and the highest radioactivity concentration in these tissues was 8 to 48 after administration.”
Late last year, after repeated denials, the NIH was forced to admit that many women were experiencing changes in their menstrual cycles post-vaccination, and has issued millions in grants to study the problem.
What’s the short or long-term effect of this on human fertility? Unknown. But according to some commenters, any other drug showing these effects on reproductive tissues would have been pulled by now.
6. They promised us that IN NO EVENT could the mRNA enter the cell’s nucleus or modify DNA. It’s not a gene therapy!, they insisted. The CDC still insists, “mRNA never enters the nucleus of the cell where our DNA is located, so it cannot change or influence our genes.”
Fact check: Probably FALSE. At least one in vitro study has found the spike protein instructions being incorporated into cells’ own DNA in a process called “reverse transcription.” The authors reported “BNT162b2 mRNA is reverse transcribed intracellularly into DNA in as fast as 6 h[ours] upon BNT162b2 exposure.”
The possibilities are staggering. A re-wired cell could produce spike protein forever, which could explain “long Covid,” where people appear to permanently test positive for Covid. Or, if the body treats these rewired cells as cancerous, it could trigger autoimmune diseases. Finally, modified sperm or egg cells could pass the mutated DNA into ALL children’s cells.

7. Okay, so maybe it travels around a little, but they promised, FOR SURE, the mRNA cannot pass the blood brain barrier and infect brain cells, which would be VERY bad. It can’t happen, don’t worry, they said. There’s no reason to think that.
Fact check: Again, false. The same Pfizer biodistribution animal study obtained from the Japanese FOIA shows mRNA LNPs were found in rodent brains. This isn’t new; it’s been known since at least 2018 when LNPs were touted as a way to deliver drugs directly to the brain (Shankar, et al, 2018).
Furthermore, multiple studies have now confirmed that spike protein itself can cross the blood-brain barrier. While this is a problem both for natural spike as well as vaccine-induced spike, it is a more serious problem for vaccine-induced spike, because natural spike clears from the body in days in most cases, whereas mRNA-infected cells can continue to produce spike for months, or even longer with repeated booster shots.

8. We were told the spike proteins induced by the vaccine mRNA were modified from the natural spike to be “safe” and they couldn’t possibly hurt us. It would be madness to give people a “vaccine” that created a toxic spike, so OF COURSE the artificial spike was tailored to be harmless.
Fact check: False. Studies, more and more of them, are suggesting that the vaccine-induced spike itself is dangerous to human tissue. A December 2021 study concluded, “The potential implications of S-protein amyloidogenesis in COVID-19 disease associated pathogenesis and consequences following S-protein based vaccines should be addressed in understanding … vaccine side effects.”
A more recent study (April 15th) asserts the mRNA-induced spikes are themselves toxic.
The authors wrote:
In this paper, we present evidence that vaccination induces a profound impairment in type I interferon signaling, which has diverse adverse consequences to human health. Immune cells that have taken up the vaccine nanoparticles release into circulation large numbers of exosomes containing spike protein along with critical microRNAs that induce a signaling response in recipient cells at distant sites. We also identify potential profound disturbances in regulatory control of protein synthesis and cancer surveillance. These disturbances potentially have a causal link to neurodegenerative disease, myocarditis, immune thrombocytopenia, Bell’s palsy, liver disease, impaired adaptive immunity, impaired DNA damage response and tumorigenesis.

9. We were told that kids experiencing myocarditis would be fine, it was ‘mild’ and they’d recover quickly.
Fact check: False. A new study concluded that 3-8 months after an initial diagnosis of post-jab myocarditis in teenagers, a large majority persistently show abnormal markers associated with a worse prognosis of present and future heart function, despite improvement in other cardiac markers. The authors noted, “In a cohort of adolescents with COVID-19 mRNA vaccine-related myopericarditis, a large portion have persistent LGE abnormalities, raising concerns for potential longer-term effects … LGE is a predictor of all cause death, cardiovascular death, cardiac transplant, rehospitalization, recurrent acute myocarditis and requirement for mechanical circulatory support.”
So, the bottom line is that there is very little that we were originally told about the shots that was true. Charitably, maybe public health officials were just being optimistic when they touted the universal safety of the shots, and didn’t MEAN to mislead anyone. It doesn’t matter. Their most important job was to be precise and thorough. They weren’t.
The silver lining is that apparently the embargo on information critical of the shots has been lifted. We’re not where we need to be yet, but the momentum is building. We need to keep up the pressure and continue the search for truth. It’s working!
Have a magnificent Monday and I’ll be back tomorrow with a more light-hearted roundup for you.
