I say it's a depopulation agenda. Now 5 dead in my court. I don't plan on changing my mind.

And everyone, Rutgers too, needs to stop calling this garbage a "vaccine". It isn't, it wasn't, it "ain't never gonna be." Call it what it is: gene modification that causes more problems than in solves. Is it deliberate? I think so. They had animal trials on mRNA in which all animals died. They knew.

Remember when people called us conspiracy theorists for saying doctors were getting paid to push this garbage? Me too. Conspiracy theorists still batting 1,000.

And another problem is when this comes clear and people realise they've been poisoned- it'll scare them stupid which will also cause disease. Fear made them jump on the first poison, fear will finish them if the vax doesn't.

It doesn't have to be this way. It's so sad. So messy.

Fear alone can absolutely make a person sick. The placebo and nocebo effects are documented.

NEVER make decisions when you are fearful and feeling rushed to make a decision. Always make the decision when you feel at peace. remember jesus on the pinnacle and satan trying to entice him with everything to DO SOMETHING? what did Jesus do? he stayed calm...continued repeating Gods Word(reminding himself what is true/truth). Satan is always rushing you to DO SOMETHING ALREADY.....in the covid scam case SO WE CAN MAKE OUR EASY MONEY OFF OF YOUR WORTHLESS BODY....just hurry up and take the damn thing you imbecile, our agenda is far more important than what you are.

So true KB! Exactly what I was telling my 30 something daughters....just WAIT. One worked in the service industry, the other nursing her daughter. Both highly pressured from everyone but their mother. The nursing mother trusted me for a time but her husband's family was relentless..." Don't you want to pass those good antibodies on to your daughter?" I was physically ill. It wasn't until she asked her NATUROPATHIC doctor about the shot and he said, " It's probably safe" that she went ahead and got 2. I contacted him to say he had no right to tell her that!

Similar story here. So many well-meaning people were duped & captured by the prevailing sinister idiocy. I hope they’re ok. I applaud you for giving that naturopath a reaming. My daughter too. And I’d had hope that at least she would dissuade my daughter. Nope.

Dr. Vandebosch says they should start taking antivirals as a preventative

Here's the thing... doctors were giving out antibiotics like M&Ms in the 70s when I was a kid. The flu? Antibiotics. Bee sting? Antibiotics. Slight cold? Antibiotics. Every time I went to that evil man he pushed antibiotics for no reason. What do we have now? Antibiotic resistance. Don't we think the same would happen with anti virals?

My family doctor would NOT give/prescribe antibiotics unless absolutely necessary.

I can hear him now saying “giving antibiotics for every cold, etc. & one day when you really need an antibiotic you’ll be immune to them.” Wise general practitioner.

My mother thought it was a great idea for me to take tetracycline for acne as a teenager back in the 70's. I would say that this is a good possibility for why I pretty quickly developed inflammatory bowel disease.

Perhaps, but vaccines cause this too, as per the work of GI doc Andrew Wakefield. He’s one of the good guys who was vilified by all, of course, but he was right. I have Crohn’s and I believe it was caused by a 3-part jab for hepatitis I was asked (voluntarily) to get for work (Police station) during a winter Olympics in our city.

I heard one conspiracy that HepB given to the gays in san fran and LA in the late 80's gave them HIV....at this point who knows what was ever in any vaxx? could have been created special for desired outcome. Ppl truly were treated like lab rats! ALL OF US, not just tuskegee. Remember pfizer employees got a 'special batch' for their covid jabs. You can't even trust CVS to give you the correct vial...how many stories did you hear that they gave you covid jab when you went in for flu jab? Children were given adult doses of covid when they were there for flu jab.

This is what Geert was alluding to when recommending antivirals.

Expand full comment

That’s a good point but the antibiotics were, like you pointed out, given for everything so maybe they had no real function in the body except in severe infections, they were excess and that’s why we became resistant to them. The body doesn’t recognize them as helpful.

But with ivermectin there is a purpose so they remain effective.

We can hope.

I am spitballing here, but it may be something to consider.

Antibiotic use for nothing infuriates me. Not only are we becoming antibiotic resistant but it changes everyone's gut microbiome which is one of the reasons for more cancers.

More millenials have chronic stomach/ digestive issues than ever before.

Finally, the idiots of medical science have realized that all good

health starts in the gut.

Expand full comment

You got that right about the gut AND antibiotic use.

Well they just so happen to invent the very expensive new Biologics for the gut and it blocks the body from healing itself so THEN you get all sorts of stuff BUT FIRST you must take all your shingles and flu and other shots THEN what happens is you get cancer and all sorts of autoimmune diseases. That is what a GI doc said to me and no gut healing food change could help. I shit blood for 2 months and could not digest any food... severe ulcerative colitis caused by glyphosate... I have enough proof that convinced me but the doc denied that could have messed up my gut biome.

She is an indoctrinated FOOL.

I did it MY way and 100% healed 1 year this month with no issues.

For all my life's 60+ years, when given antibiotics by doctors, I NEVER heard once that I should be taking PRObiotics as well, to help balance gut microbiome.... not UNTIL 2 years ago when I was seeing an acupuncturist, and mentioned antibiotics to him, and he promptly said ALWAYS pair antibiotics WITH PRObiotics. Since then, my husband has had oral surgery that required antibiotics, and I made sure to purchase the best PRObiotics I know of. But even his dentist didn't mention this to him when he prescribed the other...???

Thank you mimi, I completely agree. Constant fear is debilitating and devastating to people, and it doesn't matter if the fearmongering is coming from someone we happen to agree with. GVB is a smart guy and he was right on many of the vax mechanics, but his continuously wrong doom-mongering discredits him.

Ask yourself, why are so many of these people are hell-bent on scaring everyone to death about something THEY CAN DO NOTHING ABOUT? Be it people who took the shot are doomed as ticking time bombs, those who didn't take it are doomed from vaxxed people's shedding, or everyone is doomed from the coming vax-induced superbug, it never stops.

Reject all of this stuff and live your life. There's a good reason the Bible says "trust God and fear not" hundreds of times. There's no exception that says it's okay to fear if your politics happens to align with the fear-pushers.

Indeed! Trust God and fear not!

But, I think the point is missed. He talks about Ivermectin. He raises alarms for what we’re already seeing. I find a few things I disagreed with in the first part, but, from about 22 mins on, he gets into the meat.

I think with this audience, there’s nothing new or reason to fear.

But It’s a good wake-up for my uniformed daughter (studying medicine!) & others in my family who consider ‘The Atlantic’ & the like to be the word of enlightened truth or too busy to not just absorb the brainwashing marketing & news, & the CDC,et al & WHO . They’re too arrogant to look behind, engage, know or see what’s happened & I gave up a while back for the sake of peace — It was futile. They got into their delusion via fear; fear may get them out.

It can be difficult for people to obtain (by intent!) - more so in some areas than others - but it can be obtained.

Ethics. Is the NIH ethical to have financial incentives to push mandatory injection of their patented biotechnology?

Let's consult their ethicist. The NIH's Chief Bioethicist is Christine Grady. Who is Christine Grady to decide the ethics of this difficult question? She is also the Mrs. Anthony Fauci. And Mrs. Anthony Fauci, one of the top recipients of royalties through the NIH's injected biotechnology mandates, has declared the entire arrangement ethical.

So that's that. And how dare you question their ethics!?!?

https://youtu.be/pf2cVoP5mRs?si=Dh1xNxq5yZn1qAEh

https://ijr.com/anthony-fauci-claims-no-longer-needs-church-personal-ethics-enough/

Mrs. Anthony Fauci, aka Christine Grady's ethics are the Utilitarian variety, i.e. lies in service to a greater good - as they assert is good - are ethical! What atheists believe. Atheists will often hide behind the word term "humanist" for public consumption. The Fauci's actually publicly have declared, they're "good without god." Note the article's lower case "g" as an intentional irreverence:

I'll admit that I have. I have questioned the medical community for a long time.....since the '80s. I keep allopathic doctors around so I can get medical tests I want.

I have a book titled, "How Not To Die," copywrite 2015. In it, is a chapter on Iatrogenics, death by doctor or other medical establishment person, place or thing. Studies claim it's the 3d leading cause of death. It's probably gained in status now.

I am curious why so many on here do not want to call the covid jab a vaccine. Why the differentiation? Vaccines have long posed many adverse health effects on people and we have simply turned a blind eye and accepted chronic illness to increase without making the correlation to vaccine increase. Covid jab has increased cancer incidents, but what is worse - cancer or chronic illness or autism or seizures or SIDS…? The old vaccines have merely been accepted with their ill effects on humanity and we are all the proverbial frog in the boiling pot. Covid vaccine roll out threw everyone in the pot at once. It opened a lot of eyes on different dangers of vaccines, but they are ALL dangerous. Pick your poison.

Expand full comment

Because it's not. It does not act like a classic vaccine. It neither helps stop transmission or illness, which vaccines are supposed to do. The definition of the word was changed to encourage compliance. Not just changed, but forced down our throats. I won't call it one because it is exceptionally dangerous and its dangers (heart attacks, strokes, cancers, etc.) are FAR worse than any "virus" it supposedly protects against. But, I agree with you all vaccines are very dangerous. I will never touch one. But someone would have to shoot me point blank in the face before I touched the "covid" "vaccine". I'm going to die, but I'll be dammed if it is due to big pharma.

Read through past vaccines and you’ll find your opinion of classic vaccines may be off. substack.com/@aaronsiri

Expand full comment

I think a lot of us here are of the old school thought (have been propagandized all our lives) that vaccines were mostly good with some adverse consequences, and actually vaccinated people against some diseases. Covid jabs were so prevalent to all in such a short period of time and so obviously (to critical thinkers) did not vaccinate against anything, that they deserved a special level of disdain.

Thanks in part to this substack community, I have evolved into being more discerning about all vaccines. To me now “vaccine” is kind of a dirty word. When I really look into past vaccines that were hailed as life saving like smallpox and polio, I have found that these diseases were actually on the decline when vaccines came out, and wonder if vaccines were even necessary. I have started reading Turtles, and am helping/encouraging some younger family members navigate not vaccinating their babies.

Neither here nor there but Sudden Infant Death Syndrome was euphemized in the '60s. "Crib death" as I recall was what they called it before that time. Regardless, I agree that vaccines are highly likely as a culprit. In the '80s a family member had a 5 month old die in her crib. This relative has downed the kool aid.

That was about the time I was born. It was “live better through science”. Modern mothers lovingly would bottle feed out of a can of sterile, disgusting baby formula. All 4 kids & most everyone else in the highly educated city of Palo Alto were fed this way.

Luckily, Mom’s Stanford Dr was down on drugs, but that says that others weren’t so scrupulous. I haven’t researched what all they gave mothers & babies at that time (it’d be an interesting go), but they existed & were given. Recall the synthetic hormone, DES, widely given to prevent miscarriages & premies (1940-1960), which was linked to uterine cancer, breast cancer, infertility, spontaneous abortion, neonatal death, invasive breast cancer +++, in mother AND daughter (now suspected in granddaughters as well).

Definition was changed for the majority of the vaccines on the current schedule. It just happened to occur right after covid vax roll out. Most vaxes do not provide full immunity.

"I am curious why so many on here do not want to call the covid jab a vaccine. Why the differentiation?"

I believe the answer can be found in an essay written by Ben Hunt regarding the Common Knowledge Game. He states:

“The core dynamic of the Common Knowledge Game is this: how does private knowledge become -- not public knowledge – but common knowledge? Common knowledge is something that we all believe everyone else believes.” “Behavior changes ONLY when we believe that everyone else believes the information.”

He uses Harvey Weinstein as a VERY appropriate example.

So, until everyone else believes the “vax” is NOT a “vax," but a bioweapon of sorts, their behavior (and beliefs) will not change.

The essay is amazing and, sadly, is only available now behind his paywall: https://www.epsilontheory.com/?s=common+knowledge

They had to change the "definition" of a "vaccine" specifically to encompass the COVID shot. Otherwise, the thing could not have been considered to be a "vaccine." Before the definition change, it was NOT a vaccine!

Last Friday, on Howard Kunstler’s podcast, this quote later made the rounds, which I find absolutely terrifying:

Belgian virologist Geert Vanden Bossche last Friday: “What I am predicting,” he said, “is a massive, massive tsunami” of illness and death among highly-vaccinated populations with dysregulated immune systems.

“ You will see what will happen, for example, in the next coming weeks. . . is more and more cases of more serious long Covid. . . . They will start to replace the surge of the cancers. . . now we have a more chronic phase. It will end with a hyper-acute phase, a huge, huge wave. . . I’ve been studying this now for four years. I know what I’m talking about. I’m probably the only person, in all modesty, who understands the immunology behind this. . . . (At 1:00:12) The thing I want your audience to understand, what we will be facing in the hyper-acute Covid crisis that is imminent, is that we will have to build a completely new world. . . . It is very very clear that when this starts, our hospitals will collapse. And that means the chaos in all kinds of layers of society — financial, economic, social, you name it — will be complete. And that is what I’m very clearly predicting. . . . It’s very strange for me to make such statements, but I’m not hiding it because I’m two hundred percent convinced that it will happen.”

Maybe he’s the only leader willing to admit what is to come—the black swan event everyone is talking about.

Time will tell. I hope he is wrong.

Or maybe, and more likely, he's completely full of s#!t.

And so what does he suggest we do about all this except live our lives in a constant state of fear waiting for society to collapse?

Take prudent measures to improve your health and strengthen your immune system. Go outside and enjoy the beauty of God's creation and the sheer joy of a nice day and fresh air. Give your kids and grandkids a hug and help them financially to get started in life. Read about new subjects and try new things to continuously exercise your mind. Go to church and give glory to God for the majesty of His creation and His love for us.

And don't think again about GVB's doom-mongering (which has been wrong over and over) as there is nothing you can do about it even if true (which it probably isn't based on his abysmal track record).

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Someone said "fear is the mind killer" and it may have been from some movie, I don't know, but it's true. I, too, and so sick and tired of all the doom and gloom. OK, society may collapse. And exactly how can I stop that? I can't. I can worry until my hair falls out, and it is for other reasons, but that stops the society from collapsing how?

Some of the 'right' wing is as bad as the left in terms of doom. It's just a different doom. I'm tired of all of it.

I was just thinking that this morning, that we live in a chronic apocalypse, and fear raises cortisol, and raised cortisol plummets the immune system. I like to listen to Rowan Williams, who is the Archbishop of Canterbury emeritus (not that freak trying to export pharma to Africa under the guise of "reparations"), and in his discussion of moral courage (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koLTeGg2hvM&t=25s), he talks about a South African pastor who fought against apartheid, who told him that,in the end, he knew nothing could touch him, really, as his soul was eternal. Rowan Williams tells some funny stories about spiritual vanity too.

Thank you. What isn’t taught in schools is that thoughts are creative and when coupled with strong emotion they are very creative. In my opinion the fear and upset created through media on a mass scale affects even the weather. We are, after all, part of nature. Our thoughts and feelings generate energy, positive or negative, that has an affect. We transmit, whether we are aware or not. I’m focusing on focusing on goodness, gratitude, the good stuff. I feel much better when I do that and I’m sure I’m easier to be around! No mre fear, or, at least when I experience it, I turn my thoughts to God and say, no fear thank you.

W.H.O. "Pandemic Treaty" needs to be stopped.

..."You only get to do this if you are in the WHO or the international pandemic set, and Member States pass the proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR) and the new Pandemic Agreement at the World Health Assembly this May. This is exactly what they are proposing.

It amounts to perhaps the most infallible wealth concentration scheme in history."...

[COVID Pandemic Made the Rich Even Richer — Wait Till You See What the WHO Is Planning Next

Rather than fiddling around with sanitation, nutrition and the endemic infections that kill people, the WHO is focused on hypothetical but far more profitable stuff like Disease X — the next pandemic — guided by the corporatists who will benefit.

...imagine an infallible, risk-free business scheme in which you get to create the market, decide the product, manage its regulation and then have the power to confine people to their homes or remove their income until they submit to buying it.

And no one can sue you or take you to court if it all goes wrong.

...All this is being negotiated within the World Health Organization’s (WHO) pandemic documents to be agreed by your government in two months’ time.

...So, imagine:

- Your organization will be a public-private partnership, so using taxpayer money but guided by the private sector.

- You spin a story that a series of plagues are about to engulf humanity, exponentially increasing in frequency and severity (your partners own the media, so don’t be troubled by reality).

- Then use public money to set up a surveillance network guaranteed to find virus variants (i.e. go and find nature, you can’t miss it).

- Governments have agreed ahead of time to give you the power to control healthcare policy when you decide these variants pose a threat (not harm, just a threat). They have agreed that this includes border closures, restrictions on the daily life of their citizens, and of course mandated vaccination (in return for them “getting freedom back”).

- Then transfer these virus variants to laboratories and pharmaceutical companies of your choice (your friends and supporters, who will in return give your organization some money).

- The pharmaceutical companies are ready: They have been receiving free billions from taxpayers annually under the same scheme, to keep their production lines ready to profit from the market you are about to create.

- Your Pharma-investor sponsors also sponsor disease modelers willing to produce the most fantastic death figures to shore up public compliance. They do this.

- You then use your powers to impose these lockdowns and insist that a 100-day vaccine must be rushed out to save hapless humanity and allow a return to an “inter-pandemic” period.

- Once your chosen companies rush out the vaccine, you get to control the regulatory bit (more money changes hands), bypassing pesky safety trials and those interminable ethics reviews.

- All the while, you can note any dissenting opinions that may reduce your market size; your governmental partners having already agreed to deal with them.

- Once you have the profit flowing, you get to decide when the profiteering can stop (think “respiratory virus vaccine” and more sponsored modeling — the rapid waning of efficacy so lots of boosters to keep humanity safe).

- All the while, you have ensured freedom from liability for your pharma partners and your regulatory process.

- You, of course, have no liability either — you are above any national jurisdiction. You don’t even have to pay tax to anyone!

Dream on.

You only get to do this if you are in the WHO or the international pandemic set, and Member States pass the proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR) and the new Pandemic Agreement at the World Health Assembly this May. This is exactly what they are proposing.

It amounts to perhaps the most infallible wealth concentration scheme in history. The general model proved itself during COVID-19, orchestrating the largest wealth transfer on a global scale, from poor to rich, the world has seen.]...SEE MORE:

There is truth in the Bible as there is in the other doctrines around the world. The difference between Christianity and say Sufi Islam or the Tao is that each have a path for those who are not capable of understanding metaphysics, which require an existing level of consciousness.

The Bible is a valid metaphysic or ESOteric path but it doesn't have an EXOteric doctrine in the same way Confucianism is an EXOteric path for those not ready for the ESOteric Tao proper. EXO = outward looking, ESO = inward looking.

It shouldn't be so hard to understand, and yet it clearly is.

Faith is vital, especially now, but part of ones Revelation might just be that the governments are up to all this business with vaccines, and they are ruled by the Bible/Torah/Talmud club.

Try to look surprised at least. It doesn't mean there is nothing there but we do need an upgrade in our general spiritual belief system.

I study anthroposophy by way of Rudolph Steiner and his 100 year old work is helping me make sense of todays world.

He predicted vaccines would close us off from our souls—why? Because by changing our perfect bodies, we put them out of frequency from the Christ/Sun evolutionary path.

Jesus was a man who took the sun/Christ inside of himself which opened up the pathway for us to do the same ‘No man cometh unto the father/sun, except by me’.

Anthroposophy is the esoteric half of Christianity. The inner teachings. I don’t see any atheists arguing with someone versed in this part of Christianity.

We can predict the ‘end of the world’ or our age, by the gene manipulation of the human body.

This is not allowed by higher forces, so, as in the days of Noah, our age will come to an end to save the human body, ‘less these days be shortened, no man will survive’.

The more this agenda goes forward, the faster we will come to a ‘reset’. See Atlantis for details.

I am so grateful that my grandson and granddaughter are both firmly against any and all vaccines for their new babies...both of which are supremely healthy as a result. The youngest baby (7 months) just got diagnosed with RSV and was over it in less than 2 days, no big deal other than a high fever and a bit of temporary congestion. And the other one right after his birth, his mom got covid and he did not! My grandson and his wife have friends whose baby was born just a month after theirs, and that child has a highly vaccinated mother and she has gotten all the usual vaccines for her child (both children are nearly 3 now). The vaccinated child hasn't developed verbally nearly as fast as my gt-grandson, and he is also rather sickly and temperamental. It has been interesting to watch the two of them and how different they are.

What you're describing sounds like a form of Gnosticism, where one gets "salvation" by a deeper understanding of hidden spiritual truths. That idea has long been rejected by Christian believers, ever since it was first taught not long after the time of Christ.

It's not to say that deeper spiritual knowledge is a bad thing, only that it needs to be actual TRUE knowledge, and (at least according to Christians) it can't be true knowledge if it denies Jesus is God come in the flesh, which kind of rules out Islam, Buddhism, Taoism etc. I would just say to anyone seeking "spiritual knowledge", especially "outside religion" - God wants you to find him, but it's easy to be deceived, so be humble about what you think you know.
