I’m not anti-vax. I am pro-science, which is why I have a serious concern with the FDA’s approval of the Pfizer-BioNtech mRNA vaccine. Based on precedent (most vaccines take years to get approval) the agency’s decision to approve Pfizer (but not Moderna, which is essentially the same mRNA vaccine) seems politically driven, which is not how it is supposed to be when medicines get approved by the FDA.
The approval also just kicked due process out the door for millions of Americans who will be forced to inject, or face loss of income and loss of access to normal social entitlements like freedom of movement and freedom of self determination.
The world looks to the U.S. because we have such high standards and stringent protocols when approving any drug that is intended to be injected into every American. Most will believe whatever they are told, fine. But I talk to so many people who are extremely suspicious of the vaccines for plausible reasons, among them:
1) It was bio warfare that brought this virus into existence, but we were told it came from a natural process; we were lied to from the beginning.
2) Fauci was involved in the funding of it’s research, and this was hidden.
3) We were told lies to keep us frightened (like the efficacy of masks, that getting a shot meant you were free from worry), all of which turned out to be false or only partially true.
3) Side effects are being hidden or obfuscated. Almost 600,000 patients and healthcare workers have complained about serious side effects, including death. Mainstream media has, to date, not reported a single death from any person taking the vaccines. Isn’t that strange?
4) We really do not know the long term side effects so we could actually be committing genocide, and the government, the same government that has left 10,000 Americans in Afghanistan to die, the same government who allowed millions to become addicted to opioids, now has the power to mandate a new vaccine to fight a virus that kills the same number of people each year as influenza.
Even today, the hullabaloo over FDA approval has been given scant notice by the media. It’s done. It is now a matter of law. Any employer can force you to get a vaccine or be fired. The government moved the experimental Pfizer vaccine to “government approved status,” which means any federal, State or local agency can madate you taking it for health reasons. Your employer cannot get sued if they fire you for non-compliance (except for religious exemptions would are evaluated on a case by case basis). FDA approval made the vaccines legitimate based on limited information none of us can answer, specifically, regarding long term side effects such as:
- Early onset of alzheimer’s or dementia
- birth defects in the unborn whose mother gets vaccinated
- Increase possibility of heart failure or brain clots (strokes)
- Bell’s Palsy or similar neurological disorders
As of this week the CDC’s VAERS tracking system has recorded the following data. Mind you this isn’t being reported anywhere in mainstream media and you would actually have a hard time getting the information owing to the CDC’s complicated labyrinth in data access.
As government agencies are prone to do, they make it difficult and cumbersome to access simple data.
As of August 13, 2021 the following reactions were recorded by vaccine patients after getting a shot:
As stated in the beginning. I am not against vaccinations. Each person needs to weigh the risks, but how can you do that when information is withheld?
The answer is you cannot, and thus when you are mandated by federal law to take a medicine that remains to be riddled with possible contingencies, one is only left with this postulate: Why the urgency? and even more so, how will this affect people who simply want the right to choose? Do we now have two distinct classes, the unvaxxed and the vaxxed?
And perhaps the biggest question of all that no one is asking: what happens if you decide not to take boosters or future vaccines, is the body now unable to fight covid at all? Do the vaccines make us immune compromised for life?
The FDA decision was more about the approval of a vaccine, it was about making it force of law. If the decision to authorize general use of this or any other vaccine was due to political pressure, then science can never be fully trusted again.
With this significant approval, tens of millions of Americans just lost a precious civil right, the worst kind. The government can now mandate what to put into your body regardless of what you think or how you feel.
Or, in the words of Dr. Anthony Fauci, “Freedom no longer matters, only safety.” This from the highest paid government employee in America, and the same individual who made it possible for the Wuhan virus to exist.
You couldn’t think of a better script for science fiction movie, only this is as real as it gets.
