You guys have been such a blessing to me over these last (almost) four years. Many of you have said that I kept you sane; but you guys have done the same for me. Thank you!
Your pre-Thanksgiving roundup includes: deep dive on new covid shot contamination preprint study; deep dive on fact checkers’ attempts to bury the covid shot contamination story; the Pentagon invests in preparing for WWIII in the best possible way; Florida cracking down on human trafficking; federal judge in Georgia finds sufficient evidence of electronic voting machine problems to go to court; Elon Musk filed his thermonuclear lawsuit against Media Matters; and a TikTok clip asks the question about San Fransisco’s commie clean-up that Establishment Media is terrified to ask.
🗞💬 WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY 💬🗞
💉 The drums keep drumming as Pfizer’s stock price continues to swirl around the toilet bowl. Last month, a preprint written by five researchers (including Jessica Rose and Kevin McKernan) published with the somewhat wordy title, “DNA fragments detected in monovalent and bivalent Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna modRNA COVID-19 vaccines from Ontario, Canada: Exploratory dose response relationship with serious adverse events.
Pandemic hero Kevin McKernan first detected the “unexpected” DNA in the covid jabs early this year, and since then the momentum has only increased. Last month’s preprint measured the levels of contamination found in vials from those batches and compared them to reports of adverse events. The graph above shows that they generally found more unexpected plasmid DNA contamination (blue) in Pfizer’s shot than even expected spike mRNA (red). Moderna’s shot ran about 50% contamination.
The FDA’s current limit for allowable DNA contamination in a medical product is 10 parts per billion, written as 10 ng (nanograms). This limit is sort of like the old legend about the FDA’s limits on how much cockroach protein is allowed in fast food products. Anyway, using one method (fluorometry), the authors found orders of magnitude more contaminant than should have been allowed.
Here are the authors’ conclusions, marked for my notes, below:
These data demonstrate the presence of billions to hundreds of billions of DNA molecules per dose in the modRNA COVID-19 products tested. Using fluorometry, all products tested exceeded the guidelines for residual DNA set by the FDA and WHO of 10 ng/dose by 188 to 509-fold.(1) Our findings extend existing concerns about vaccine safety and call into question the relevance of guidelines conceived before the introduction of efficient transfection using LPs.(2) With several obvious limitations, we urge that our work is replicated under forensic conditions and that guidelines be revised to account for highly efficient DNA transfection and cumulative dosing.(3)
(1) Note that the authors used two tests. They detected fewer stray DNA using a different method from fluorometry. The alternative test showed the amounts under the 10 ng limit, and which the regulators will surely insist is the only “proper” test, even though the researchers believe fluorometry is more accurate.
(2) “Efficient transfection” refers to the technique of embedding mRNA in lipid nano-particles (LPs) to sneak the mRNA into cells, a process called “transfection” (as opposed to viral “infection,” which happens naturally). The LP technique didn’t exist back when the FDA came up with its 10 ng contamination limit in the 1980’s. The authors argued that, in light of how easily contaminant DNA in the LPs can now transfect into human cells, the 10 ng limit should be revised.
(3) The authors also pointed out, correctly, that the 10 ng limit was meant to apply to a single dose, and never contemplated multiple doses per year, an “innovation” scientists came up with after the shots started making the injected more likely to become infected. In other words, there should be a limit on how much total contaminated DNA is allowed to be injected into people without their knowledge, adding all the shots together.
With me so far? Now let’s see how badly the medical-industrial complex is handling this little problem.
💉 FactCheck.org, funded by the Annenberg Public Policy Center, returns as the top hit when googling about this controversy. Their “debunk” appeared in a recent October 26th article titled, “COVID-19 Vaccines Have Not Been Shown to Alter DNA, Cause Cancer.” It’s long, probably intended to numb readers’ brains, but it also unintentionally and hilariously confirmed every single concern, despite setting out to “fact-check” the contamination issue.
First, FactCheck.org was — somehow — able to quickly and easily get a response from the FDA about the contamination of the shots, something nobody else has been able to do so far. FactCheck did not reprint the whole FDA response, but cited a couple sentences. Let’s put on our lawyer glasses and see what the FDA told FactCheck:
A spokesperson from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration told us in an email that “no safety concerns related to residual DNA have been identified.”(1) The spokesperson added that “with regard to the mRNA vaccines, while concerns have been raised previously as theoretical issues, available scientific evidence supports the conclusion(2) that the minute amounts of residual DNA(3) do not cause cancer or changes to a person’s genetic code.”
(1) First of all, the FDA implicitly admitted there is contaminant DNA in the vaccines, which it called “residual,” referring to e-coli left over from the vaccine manufacturing process. So now everyone agrees on that point. But FDA concluded “no safety concerns … have been identified.” In other words, they’re not saying there aren’t concerns. They just haven’t identified the concerns yet.
I’m not holding my breath.
(2) The FDA also admitted there are theoretical concerns. So, there are concerns, which it agreed have been raised. Then the FDA played a version of the “no evidence” card, which as you know, involves picking and choosing which actual evidence to count as “valid.” In other words, available evidence is not the same as just evidence, as we will see.
It’s great! You can support pretty much any conclusion you want using the “available evidence” technique. Available evidence supports the conclusion that the moon landing was faked. So there. Available evidence, helpfully provided by the CIA, supports the conclusion that JFK was assassinated by a lone gunman. Et cetera.
(3) In case there was any doubt, the FDA explicitly agreed the shots are contaminated, but minimized the significance of that fact by calling the amounts “minute” and “residual,” as if “residual” contamination is better than other kinds of contamination. These are meaningless nonsense adjectives. Minute? Of course they’re minute. It’s DNA. All DNA is minute, morons.
Every so often you have to pause and marvel at how people this dumb could have pulled off the whole covid caper. It is kind of like if the short bus accidentally turned left into the nuclear power station’s parking lot, and then the specially-abled students on the bus invented fusion. And then while everybody was high-fiving and giving them awards, the core exploded.
Anyway. The FDA is just playing games with the definition of the word “minute.” The agency used the logical fallacy of equivocation, a type of rhetorical sleight-of-hand to fool us into thinking they’re saying the amount of contamination is minute relative to something else, which they never name. The implication is there isn’t enough contamination to make people sick. But they can’t say that, because they have no idea (or don’t want to say). Or they would have said it, believe me.
Next, the FactCheck.org trotted out the most-favorite logical fallacy, the appeal to authority. In other words, they cited their cherry-picked experts, who of course said everything is just fine:
Various experts also told us that it is unlikely that residual DNA in the vaccines could integrate into DNA or cause cancer, even in theory. And as we have previously written, there isn’t evidence to date that the vaccines cause cancer or have led to an increase in cancer.
Haha! Once again, they unintentionally admitted everything. First of all, only “various” experts — who are not named, so they’re probably Pfizer whitecoats — and not all experts, or even most experts — but the various experts said the contamination was unlikely to cause problems.
Unlikely does not mean, “impossible.” It doesn’t not mean, “almost impossible.” It’s more of an expression of doubt, a weasel word designed to reassure gullible people. It also does NOT mean the ‘unlikely’ thing referred to is good. It could be bad. It’s probably very bad. You don’t need an umbrella in the car, it’s unlikely to rain today. Just expense it, you’re unlikely to get audited by the IRS. Don’t worry, go ahead, your wife is unlikely to find out.
Next, FactCheck has apparently given up and is now just admitting that some of the contamination is from the SV40 monkey-virus DNA that is, in fact, in the shots. SV40 wasn’t disclosed in the Pfizer and Moderna EUA applications, and for most of this year the officials have robustly denied it, but Kevin McKernan quickly found a way to show it so plainly that that they’ve now had to retreat to arguing about whether it matters.
Anyway, here’s what FactCheck said about SV40, first calling it a “possibility” but then confirming it as a “fact” in the very next sentence:
Some of the alleged concern has focused on the possibility, raised in the original preprint, that some of the residual DNA in the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is from a monkey virus called SV40. The EMA confirmed to us that the plasmid, or DNA template, used to make the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine contains some short sections of DNA from this virus. A Pfizer spokesperson also told us via email that “specific, non-infectious parts of the SV40 sequence, which are commonly used in the pharmaceutical industry are present in starting material used by Pfizer and BioNTech.”
Maybe someday someone will ask why the SV40 monkey virus is in the shots’ DNA formula in the first place. Why is it “residual” if it is in the formula? Where did it ‘reside’ to begin with? In monkeys? How did it get from the monkeys to the shots? Monkey business? FactCheck.org didn’t say. For now, all they offer are “various experts” who think, based on “available evidence,” it is “unlikely” that the monkey virus DNA — however it got there — can hurt anybody.
Next, right after saying how there was “no available evidence” that the contaminants, including the SV40 DNA, could possibly cause cancer, the FactCheck.org article described some evidence. It was in the form of a September hearing in South Carolina, where Dr. Buckhaults testified as an expert saying it was “likely” the contaminant DNA would integrate with people’s own cells. Here’s how FactCheck.org described his testimony:
In (Dr. Buckhaults’) presentation, which was shared widely online, he said that DNA “can and likely will” integrate into the genomes of people’s cells, and he shared concerns about various potential health impacts, including cancer. As we’ve said, other experts and regulatory agencies disagree that residual DNA is likely to integrate into a person’s own DNA.
So it’s not really “no evidence.” Now — in the same article — they admitted some evidence but then said some experts disagree. First of all, that’s not very reassuring. Experts also disagreed whether smoking tobacco causes cancer — and they disagreed about that for a long time. And don’t get even me started on the FDA’s food pyramid.
But second, FactCheck.org cited one of its handpicked experts who used the worst possible explanation of how unlikely contamination-caused cancer is:
The mRNA vaccines are injected into the muscles, where the bulk of the vaccine remains. Muscle cells “do not divide rapidly and have lots of cytoplasm compared to the size of their nuclei,” Milavetz, the molecular biologist at the University of North Dakota, said. This means that it is “very unlikely” that any residual DNA from a vaccine introduced to the cytoplasm of a cell will make it into the nucleus and insert itself into the DNA there in the first place, he added.
Dr. Milavetz still thinks the shots’ mRNA stays in the injection site, and his whole theory depends on that. Need I say more?
The article continues on and on, page after page, in similar vein. For example, it quoted Dr. Paul Offit as saying that traditional vaccines also sometimes have contaminants, and nobody’s ever complained about traditional vaccine side effects. So.
In an effort to show the ‘unlikelihood’ of a DNA injury, the fact checkers spent seven more paragraphs walking through the chain of events that would have to happen for one bit of contaminant DNA to get into a single cell nucleus. But of course, there are billions and billions, or hundreds of billions, of chances for that to happen. Somebody needs to do some math.
An unlikely event multiplied by billions of chances becomes a lot less unlikely.
For example, you’re unlikely to flip a quarter and land on heads ten times in a row. We can all agree that’s pretty unlikely. But now flip the quarter three hundred billion times. How much would you be willing to bet against a ten-head-streak somewhere in all those flips?
Bottom line, the Fact Checkers made a horrible strategic blunder. Their article, intended to show how safe the shots are, is much too long and overly complicated. It could’ve been less than a page. They should have just said — truthfully — that McKernan, Buckhaults, and the other scientists working on this never claimed the contamination IS causing cancer. They’re only asking the question.
Instead, what FactCheck actually accomplished was the opposite of what it meant to do: it officially confirmed all the problems exist that are making scientists ask questions. And nobody has answers yet. Worse, after it became untenable to deny that the contamination exists, they’ve pinned their hopes on it being such a small amount that it can’t possibly cause a problem. But as the study we started with shows, other detection methods are finding a LOT more stray DNA where it shouldn’t be.
The DNA cat is out of the mRNA bag. My best guess is this is why Wall Street fled Pfizer and Moderna this year. Everyone knows the ugly end is coming. It’s just a matter of time now.
🔥 I want to assure you that, as we edge closer and closer to the kinetic phase of World War III, amidst a critical recruiting shortfall, our country’s top generals have their priorities straight. They are on it. Don’t believe me? Take a look at yesterday’s Fox article headlined, “Pentagon asks for $114M to spend on diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility in 2024.” It’s the most they’ve ever allocated for DEI! And just look at these lovely, body-positive uniformed ladies (don’t you dare call them ‘fat’):
Fox reported that the DOD’s DEI funding request “is the largest of its kind yet.”
Diversity is our secret weapon. The Russians and the Chinese don’t even use diversity, if you can believe that. They fill their armies with patriarchal, native-born, high-testosterone alpha males. They don’t even force recruits to walk a mile in high heels or memorize the pronoun chart. Ze, zhir, zim, Om, orr, ogg … wait, I need to start over.
So Russia and China don’t stand a chance against our high-estrogen army. Thanks generals!
In unrelated news, also yesterday, a $1.46 billion-dollar P-8A Navy sub-hunter overshot the runway and sank into Kaneohe Bay. Not that it matters, but unconfirmed reports claimed it was a diverse all-female crew. Hey, it’s a big, unwieldy plane! Landing it was kind of like trying to park an extended-cab F250 while checking your makeup.
Or maybe the crew thought the plane could hunt submarines even better from the water.
🔥 We’ve had a legal setback. On Monday, New York’s Olean Times Herald ran a story headlined, “NY appeals court overturns Ploetz ruling on COVID-19 rulemaking.” The short version is, a New York Judge canceled replacement Governor Kathy Hochul’s awful quarantine rule, which allowed the state to round up citizens, sick or not, and hold them indefinitely without any due process. The state appealed, and on Monday the appellate court reversed, finding the quarantine rule was just fine — on a goofy ’standing’ decision.
“We are deeply disappointed in the Appellate Division’s ruling in favor of the Hochul administration,” the plaintiff lawmakers said. “The court did not address the merits of the case which were outlined by Judge Ploetz in his original decision. Instead, they shamefully reversed and dismissed the case on a technicality, claiming that we, the petitioners, somehow lacked standing to bring the case in the first place.”
I know the terrific lawyer who’s fighting the case, and she carefully considered the standing question before she filed. That’s why the plaintiffs are lawmakers.
The plaintiffs vowed to appeal the decision to the state’s Supreme Court. Prayers are welcome.
🔥 In much better news, Florida’s News 4-Jacksonville ran a story yesterday headlined, “Florida Attorney General announces JAXPORT joining efforts to help spot, report human trafficking.”
This is part of Florida’s statewide crackdown on human trafficking, which is part of, and related to, its crackdown on illegal immigration. Progress.
🔥 And last week, Georgia’s 11-Alive News ran a story headlined, “Judge sets trial challenging Georgia's voting machines.”
Federal judge Amy Totenberg, an Obama appointee, wrote in her trial order that the “2021 Coffee County election equipment breach … presents a substantial risk that … votes will not be counted as cast,” and held that the state “defendants failed to identify a single cybersecurity expert who endorses the current configuration of Georgia’s (ballot marking device) system.”
In a remarkable footnote to the order, Judge Totenberg said the evidence in the case "does not suggest that the Plaintiffs are conspiracy theorists of any variety,” and that some of the nation's leading cybersecurity experts and computer scientists provided evidence that Georgia's voting system poses a threat to the constitutional rights of voters to cast their votes and to have those votes accurately counted.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that there was no evidence of computer fraud using electronic voting machines. That’s why this case is so inconvenient to the narrative. Even worse, the case is funded by patriotic pillow magnate Mike Lindell.
The trial is set for January 9, 2024. This trial will be what the democrats have hysterically tried to avoid since 2020.
In totally-unrelated news, Politico ran a story on Sunday headlined, “Argentines vote in election that could lead Trump-admiring populist to presidency.” Thanks to a recent decision by the Argentine Supreme Court, that country used paper ballots instead of electronic voting machines, which may help explain how Javier Milei got elected. Check this revealing sentence out:
Voting stations opened at 8 a.m. (1100 GMT) and close 10 hours later. Voting is conducted with paper ballots, making the count unpredictable, but initial results were expected around three hours after polls close.
Three hours! Argentina has 47 million citizens. Georgia has only ten million citizens. It sometimes takes weeks to find out who won in Georgia. So. I’m just saying. It might not be a conspiracy theory.
🔥 As promised, on Monday Elon Musk filed his “thermonuclear” lawsuit against leftist attack dog Media Matters. I’ll soon give you a more detailed legal analysis of the merits, which I believe are strong, but here is a key paragraph from the complaint that nutshells the case:
The truth bore no resemblance to Media Matters' narrative. In fact, IBM's, Comcast's, and Oracle's paid posts appeared alongside the fringe content cited by Media Matters for only one viewer (out of more than 500 million) on all of X: Media Matters. Not a single authentic user of the X platform saw IBM's, Comcast's, or Oracle's ads next to that content, which Media Matters achieved only through its manipulation of X's algorithms as described above. And in Apple's case, only two out of more than 500 million active users saw its ad appear alongside the fringe content cited in the article at least one of which was Media Matters.
But that’s not all! Also on Monday, Texas’s outstanding Attorney General Ken Paxton also announced his office was opening a potentially-criminal investigation into Media Matters:
Media Matters will soon have its grubby little hands full.
🔥 Finally, a TikTok user asked a question that Establishment Media has for two weeks now been unable to ask, or too scared to ask: where did all of San Fransisco’s cleaned-up homeless people go?
It’s a fair question. There hasn’t been a single corporate media interview with any ‘displaced’ homeless people. Where are they? Did China’s dictator Xi take them back to China with him? Was it UFOs? Are they in an underground bunker? Is Newsom putting them up in the Governor’s mansion? Did they spontaneously combust? Are they on a bus to Martha’s Vineyard?
It’s a mystery!
Ideas are welcome in the comments. Another fair question is, why is this only being asked on TikTok? Inquiring minds would like to know.
