Remember when “they” were all telling “us” that the only way out of the COVID-19 pandemic was for everybody to get vaccinated? We were exhorted to accept a jab because it would protect the vulnerable, because it would help us achieve herd immunity, because it was our “civic duty” to take it, because it was the only way we could return to normalcy, because it would help healthcare workers to keep their patients safe, because, because, because:
Here in Australia, which managed to largely evade the virus by turning our country into a giant prison island, we were promised that these experimental injections would help us reach herd immunity without suffering the toll of the disease itself.
We were told – by people like Senator Kimberley Kitching, who is eminently qualified to make such proclamations by virtue of having arts and law degrees – that “being vaccinated is the only way out of this nightmare” and that “we need everyone to be vaccinated”.
Here’s how that’s turning out for Auscatraz. The number of cases has skyrocketed:
And although testing has increased, the spike in cases cannot solely be attributed to increased testing (a “casedemic”) because the number of tests conducted per confirmed case of COVID-19 is at its lowest level since the pandemic was declared:
Most tellingly, with 76% of the population having received at least one dose of a COVID-19 injection and 70% “fully vaccinated”…
… the number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 in November 2021 – late spring, mind you, when respiratory viral illness rates are typically extremely low – is sitting at over 350 times higher than in the corresponding period in 2020 when no vaccines were available:
Just in case you need a little extra help in discerning the connection between vaccine doses administered and sickness and death from COVID-19, here it is:
And we’re not alone. Here’s Germany, which commenced its roll out of experimental COVID-19 injections in the midst of the northern hemisphere winter, and has now jabbed 70% of its population (67% “fully”), with roughly 85% of those in the most vulnerable 60+ age bracket “fully vaccinated”:
Note that Germany also has mask mandates in place and does not permit anyone to participate in any form of public life unless they are either “fully vaccinated”, can present proof that they are COVID-recovered, or have tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 infection.
And yet somehow, neither vaccination nor containment theatre is restoring normal life. In fact, 7-day case counts are higher than ever before in the pandemic. How strange.
But maybe Germany hasn’t reached high enough vaccination rates to “achieve herd immunity” and “end the pandemic”. Let’s check out Singapore, which has injected 93% of its citizens (92% “fully”):
Nope, that’s not going so well either.
So what in hell (and I’m not at all sure that I’m using that word rhetorically) is happening here?
As usual, the scientific literature provides clues, if you’re prepared to read between the lines. And those clues all point in one direction: COVID-19 injections are interfering with the human immune response to SARS-CoV-2 in profoundly dangerous ways.
Exhibit A: Injecting people who are newly recovered from SARS-CoV-2 infection increases their risk of reinfectionA study of over 1.5 million Qataris who received either the Pfizer/BNT 162B2 or Moderna/mRNA-1273 jabs (roughly one-third of whom had previously tested positive to SARS-CoV-2 on PCR) found – unsurprisingly, given previous research from Israel – that those who already had natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2 before getting jabbed had a greatly reduced risk of getting reinfected than people who were jabbed without prior natural infection.
Furthermore, as time went on, those with jab-only immunity became more and more likely to suffer breakthrough infection compared to the jab-plus-natural immunity group, indicating increasingly-rapidly waning immunity:
But even more importantly, those who had received a Pfizer COVID-19 shot more than 6 months after recovering from SARS-CoV-2 infection were nearly 40% more likely to suffer a breakthrough infection than those who were jabbed less than 6 months after being infected, while those who received a Moderna shot were 60% likely to have a breakthrough infection if they were infected more than 6 months vs less than 6 months before getting their jab.
So what, you may be asking? Well, previous research has shown that natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2 continues to evolve for at least 6 months after recovering from infection, resulting in “greater somatic hypermutation, increased potency and resistance to RBD [receptor binding domain] mutations, indicative of continued evolution of the humoral response” – in other words, natural immunity becomes more broad and complete over time.
However, if a person receives a COVID-19 jab too soon after recovering from natural infection, the jab-induced antibodies may prevent the development of this broad, complete immunity. That’s certainly the direction that the Qatari study is pointing in.
Which leads us to…
Exhibit B: COVID-19 injections impede the development of full immunity to SARS-CoV-2According to the UK Health Security Agency’s COVID-19 vaccine surveillance report for week 42 of 2021,
“N antibody levels appear to be lower in individuals who acquire infection following 2 doses of vaccination.”
Let’s break this down. The “N” in “N antibody levels” refers to the nucleocapsid protein, the “shell” of the virus. “S antibodies” form against the spike protein of the virus.
While people who have been jabbed but never infected will only develop S antibodies, people who have recovered from infection with SARS-CoV-2 will develop both N and S antibodies, giving them broad and durable protection to not just the currently-circulating strain/s of SARS-CoV-2, but future variants that develop as the virus does what viruses do – continuously mutates.
Or at least, COVID-recovered people should develop both N and S antibodies. But as the UKHSA report indicates, people who get infected after being “fully vaccinated” (so-called breakthrough infections, which are now occurring at higher rates than infections in unvaccinated people, in all age groups over 30 – see the two right-most columns in Table 2 from the report, below) fail to develop the normal complement of N antibodies.
The figure below shows the sharp divergence between levels of N and S antibodies detected in blood donors:
What does this mean? Quite simply, without N antibodies, “fully vaccinated” individuals will be more susceptible to getting reinfected by strains of SARS-CoV-2 that have undergone mutation in the spike protein, which just happens to be the part of the virus that is mutating most rapidly due to vaccine-induced selection pressure.
Which brings us to…
Exhibit C: SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins induced by COVID-19 injections may cripple the development of immunological memoryA study published in the journal Viruses examined the effect of SARS-CoV-2 spike protein on DNA repair mechanisms within cells. These repair mechanisms are crucial to the development of adaptive immunity – the arm of our immune system which is able to “remember” pathogens that it has previously fought off, so that we don’t become sick if we encounter them again.
The authors of the study posit that infection with SARS-CoV-2 is particularly dangerous to elderly people because they already have impaired DNA repair systems, and the spike proteins released by the virus further impedes this sub-par damage-repair mechanism, crippling their adaptive immune response:
“Consistent with our results, clinical observations also show that the risk of severe illness or death with COVID–19 increases with age, especially older adults who are at the highest risk . This may be because SARS–CoV–2 spike proteins can weaken the DNA repair system of older people and consequently impede V(D)J recombination and adaptive immunity.”
However, where things really get concerning is the implication of their finding for the immune function of people who have received COVID-19 injections that are based on the full-length spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, which includes mRNA vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna) and adenovirus-vectored vaccines (AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson).
“Full–length spike–based vaccines may inhibit the recombination of V(D)J in B cells, which is also consistent with a recent study that a full–length spike–based vaccine induced lower antibody titers compared to the RBD–based vaccine … Taken together, we identified one of the potentially important mechanisms of SARS–CoV–2 suppression of the host adaptive immune machinery. Furthermore, our findings also imply a potential side effect of the full–length spike–based vaccine.”
Or in plain English, people who have received mRNA and adenovirus-vectored injections may not be able to develop immunological “memory” due to damage to their DNA repair mechanisms, induced by the spike protein that the injections forced their own cells to produce.
Is this why heavily-vaccinated nations are now – contrary to all those promises that lining up for experimental injections was our golden ticket out of the pandemic – entangled in an endless war with SARS-CoV-2, and their ICUs are “completely filled with vaccinated people“? If you have a better explanation, let me know.
