Vaccine hesitancy unlikely to disappear because of FDA approval In deciding whether to get vaccinated against Covid-19 along with his wife, Matt Zeiss has been monitoring reports of adverse side effects tracked by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and waiting to see when U.S. regulators fully approve the vaccines’ use. That happened Monday, when the Food and Drug Administration formally approved Pfizer-BioNTech’s two-dose shot for people ages 16 and up, making it the first Covid vaccine to meet the rigorous requirements after months of inspections and data showing that side effects are extremely rare. “It’s only been a day, but I can say it’s provided a bit of reassurance that wasn’t there, perhaps moving the needle a bit,” said Zeiss, who lives in Missouri, where about 44 percent of residents have been fully immunized against Covid-19 and hospitals are straining under a sharp rise in cases in recent weeks. But Zeiss isn’t rolling up his sleeve just yet for a Covid shot. Despite the FDA’s approval for Pfizer’s vaccine, of which 200 million doses were administered in the U.S. under emergency provisions, he remains apprehensive, because “the process feels rushed,” he said.
Comment of The Day!
I have a friend who got covid early. He had the antibodies. He was even donating blood for therapeutics. Was tested for antibodies regularly. Then he got what Don got. Whatever they’re calling Delta. He was around vaccinated people. To clarify he was NOT vaccinated himself. He took HCQ and to quote, “In 5 days, it didn’t touch it.” Then he went in the hospital. Fortunately his doctor was against the vaccine and just went the route of steroids and oxygen. But that is troubling to say the least that people who have antibodies are getting the new variant and getting so sick. This is a common story in Central Texas lately.

Pfizer Just Got ‘Full FDA Approval’ For Its COVID Vaccine. There’s Just One Thing… The Moderna and Pfizer vaccine tests were conducted, as customary, with a control group; a group within the trial who were given a placebo and not the test vaccine. However, during the trial -and after the untested vaccines were given emergency use authorization- the vaccine companies conducting the trial decided to break protocol and notify the control group they were not vaccinated. Almost all the control group were then given the vaccine. Purposefully dissolving the placebo group violates the scientific purpose to test whether the vaccine has any efficacy; any actual benefit and/or safety issues. Without a control group there is nothing to compare the vaccinated group against. According to NPR, the doctors lost the control group in the Johnson County Clinicial Trial (Lexena, Kansas) on purpose: (Via NPR) […] “Dr. Carlos Fierro, who runs the study there, says every participant was called back after the Food and Drug Administration authorized the vaccine. “During that visit we discussed the options, which included staying in the study without the vaccine,” he says, “and amazingly there were people — a couple of people — who chose that.” He suspects those individuals got spooked by rumors about the vaccine. But everybody else who had the placebo shot went ahead and got the actual vaccine. So now Fierro has essentially no comparison group left for the ongoing study. “It’s a loss from a scientific standpoint, but given the circumstances I think it’s the right thing to do,” he says. People signing up for these studies were not promised special treatment, but once the FDA authorized the vaccines, their developers decided to offer the shots.
2 Things Mainstream Media Didn’t Tell You About FDA’s Approval of Pfizer Vaccine Monday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a biologics license application for the Pfizer Comirnaty vaccine. The press reported that vaccine mandates are now legal for military, healthcare workers, college students and employees in many industries. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has now required the vaccine for all teachers and school staff. The Pentagon is proceeding with its mandate for all military service members. But there are several bizarre aspects to the FDA approval that will prove confusing to those not familiar with the pervasiveness of the FDA’s regulatory capture, or the depths of the agency’s cynicism. First, the FDA acknowledges that while Pfizer has “insufficient stocks” of the newly licensed Comirnaty vaccine available, there is “a significant amount” of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine — produced under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) — still available for use. The FDA decrees that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine under the EUA should remain unlicensed but can be used “interchangeably” (page 2, footnote 8) with the newly licensed Comirnaty product. Second, the FDA pointed out that the licensed Pfizer Comirnaty vaccine and the existing, EUA Pfizer vaccine are “legally distinct,” but proclaims that their differences do not “impact safety or effectiveness.”
Hour 2 – Outside The Box With Ty Bollinger!
BREAKING: FDA “Approves” Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine (Behind Closed Doors) On Monday, August 23, 2021, the FDA “approved” Pfizer’s COVID-19 jab for 16 years and older – officially declaring it “safe and effective” – without even allowing public discussion or holding a formal advisory committee meeting to discuss data. Despite the fact that the vaccinated people can still contract the virus, and despite the fact that the original safety trials aren’t scheduled to be completed until 2023, according to The Washington Post, this vaccine approval was the fastest in FDA history, coming less than four months after Pfizer/BioNTech filed for licensing in May. In the words of Jon Rappoport:The fix is in. We raced from “emergency use authorization” of experimental vaccines to “full approval.” Boom. Despite the promise of “transparency” prior to giving full approval to the COVID vaccines, the FDA gave its final green light today. Slam-dunk. And there was NO public hearing. Obviously, the FDA didn’t want to allow even mainstream “experts” to speak in a public hearing before approval; the agency is running a very tight ship. No slip-ups. No defections.” Any smidgen of credibility that the FDA previously had is gone. The FDA has zero long-term data in hand, while emerging short-term data shows the COVID-19 jab is deadly, permanently harming immune systems, and by the FDA’s own flawed counting system actually increasing COVID-19 cases. Nonetheless … APPROVED!
New Zealand Locks Down Country Despite ZERO COVID-19 Deaths! This past Tuesday, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern imposed a strict “Level 4” lock-down after just a single positive test for COVID-19. REPEAT: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern just locked down New Zealand due to a single positive test for COVID-19!! Let that sink in folks!! Under the new edict by Jacinda the tyrant, for 72 hours, Kiwis were not allowed to leave their homes except for exercise, grocery shopping, and essential health care visits. Due to ONE positive COVID-19 test! Although less than 20% of the population is vaccinated, New Zealand has remained relatively unscathed since the pandemic began. In fact, the island nation has recorded less than 3,000 cases since 2019 and only 24 deaths in a population of 5 million. New Zealand hasn’t reported a fatality in 6 months, with the last COVID-19 mortality recorded in February of this year. But that hasn’t stopped them from pushing for increased vaccination and forcing citizens to stay in their homes. On the other side of the Tasman Sea, Australia has also instituted severe lockdown restrictions. Australia has recorded 975 deaths since 2019 and has a roughly 34% vaccination rate. In a population of over 25 million, this amounts to a 0.001% mortality rate. But the Australian restrictions have been severe, with some states deploying military forces to help enforce the new “rules.” Residents in cities like Sydney are under nightly curfews, required to wear masks at all times, and are limited to a 5km radius of their homes. These “rules” are being actively enforced by local police and military personnel.
Pfizer Anti-Smoking Drug Recalled as Carcinogenic: Vaccines Still “Safe and Effective” Pfizer is expanding its recall of anti-smoking drug Chantix after testing found high levels of carcinogenic material in the pill. The leading prescription for smoking cessation, Chantix is prescribed to over half a million people each year and accounts for $1.1 BILLION in revenue for Pfizer each year. While commercial cigarettes are undoubtedly unhealthy, the market for pharmaceutical cessation products is enormous. So is the money spent on advertising. Pfizer spends over $200 million a year to promote the drug (which is over 400% more expensive than it was in 2008). As it turns out, patients looking to improve their quality of life and reduce their cancer risk by quitting cigarettes may have been ingesting a potent carcinogen instead. The cancer-causing agent in question – nitrosamines – are part of a large group of genotoxic chemical carcinogens that can be found naturally in some dip and chewing tobacco products. Unfortunately, the issue of Pfizer making millions of dollars by selling unsafe drugs isn’t new. Pfizer has paid out BILLIONS in fines and settlements for promoting unsafe products, pushing off-label use on doctors, and lying about the safety or efficacy of their products. In 2009, Pfizer (and its subsidiary Pharmacia & Upjohn Company) paid $2.3 BILLION to settle criminal and civil liabilities for illegal promotion of their pharmaceutical products. The amount included payment of more than $102 million in civil settlement to six whistleblowers of the company’s fraudulent practices.
Covid: 85-90% of the U.S. must be vaccinated ‘if we’re going to get past this,’ warns Dr. Peter Hotez Dr. Peter Hotez warned that rapid spread of the delta coronavirus variant has forced the threshold for the amount of Americans requiring vaccination in order to achieve herd immunity much higher. “We’re now realizing with the variant that’s this transmissible, that we have to get to 85%, maybe, as Tony Fauci said, 90% of the country vaccinated,” said Hotez, co-director of the Center for Vaccine Development at Texas Children’s Hospital. “That’s not 85%, 90% of the adults, that’s 85-90% of the country which means all of the adults and all of the adolescents, if we’re really going to get past this, and this is why he’s giving these extended time frames before we get out of Covid-19.” White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci predicted the nation could have some control over Covid by Spring 2022 if the “overwhelming majority of people who have not been vaccinated” get vaccinated. Covid deaths in the U.S. are as high as they were in March, with more than 1,000 a day.
Antibodies Fade Faster After Vaccine vs Actual Infection Protective antibody levels decline faster in recipients of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer/BioNTech than in COVID-19 survivors, according to doctors at one of Israel’s largest HMOs. The research team tracked antibody levels in 2,653 adults who received two doses of the vaccine and in 4,361 COVID-19 survivors who were never vaccinated. Antibody levels fell by up to 40% per month in vaccinated participants, versus less than 5% per month in so-called convalescents. After six months, about 84% of vaccine recipients still had detectable antibodies, whereas roughly 90% of convalescents still had detectable antibodies after nine months. Dr. Ariel Israel of Leumit Health Services, coauthor of a reported posted on medRxiv ahead of peer review, noted that antibodies are not the immune system’s only weapon against the virus. Still, he said, the data suggests that antibody protection in Pfizer vaccine recipients wanes at a higher rate than in COVID-19 survivors.
FDA Takes Only Months to Approve Pfizer Jab Yet Cannabis Remains Schedule 1 Despite Centuries of Data Since Dec. 11, 2020, the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine has been available under the Food and Drug Administration’s Emergency Use Authorization in individuals 16 years of age and older, and the authorization was expanded to include those 12 through 15 years of age on May 10, 2021. On August 23, 2021, it was granted full approval by the FDA. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine now becomes the fastest created, deployed and subsequently approved vaccination in history. Previously, the fastest vaccine to go from development to deployment was the mumps vaccine in the 1960s, which took about four years. The swift approval of the vaccine illustrates just how fast the government can react if it wants to do so. On the contrary, however, there have been hundreds if not thousands of studies on the benefits of cannabis to safely treat multiple ailments and diseases, spanning the course of centuries, yet the FDA has failed to approve its use for anything.
