Otherwise entitled: 'Warp Speed' Only Exists In A Fictional TV Series and Movies, You Murderous Pricks

Thank both Trump and Biden for this, along with a ravenous, I don't give a flying **** medical and pharmaceutical industry that has only one thing in mind -- profits.

Remove the only check and balance against that -- if you really screw the pooch you'll get sued and might lose -- and you're going to kill a lot of people.

Science requires time.  Time to form hypothesis, time to do the studies, time to record the results, time to think about what you observed, time to write it up, time to publish it, time for others to read and think about it ("peer review"), and time for others to iterate over that process, attempting to replicate or refute what you claim you found.  Science is not a set of bald claims, it is a process, and wearing a white coat in no way makes the claims more or less valid.

All of the "warp speed" EUA'd vaccines were constructed from a piece of the spike protein not determined independently but "given" by China.  It was simply assumed that without the "N" part of the viral protein it could not cause disease independently.

There was no evidence for or against this belief; it was simply assumed without a single shred of experimental evidence at the time and the entire premise of developing alleged "vaccines" that are designed around having the body deliberately produce said protein was, on that basis, put into production and used.  Our government bought into this blind faith and even went so far as to issue blanket legal immunity to everyone involved if it turned out to be wrong.

That was wildly stupid and I said so at the time.  There is in fact never a presumption that introducing a foreign thing that is not usually present into the body will not cause disease; indeed even introducing an excessive amount of something already present frequently causes disease.

Then there's the legal definition of a "vaccine", found in some state legal codes and all over the scientific literature which is: "A whole or fraction of a virus, inactivated or attenuated, that is introduced into the body to provoke an immune response for the purpose of providing durable immunity against infection by the original pathogen."

Note that nowhere does the definition provide for causing the body to produce said fraction itself.  That's because it was never done before as a means of "vaccination" and thus every one of these injections currently available under EUA does not meet the legal definition of a vaccine; they are, legally, a therapeutic which, again by definition, is a substance that is introduced to alter, cause, enhance or suppress a biological process with the intent to treat or prevent a disease.

All of this stupidity is on top of the other elements of stupidity and known risk which we also ignored and I have previously written about; specifically viral evasion from non-sterilizing vaccines and the actual promotion through evolutionary pressure of more-virulent strains along with the very real possibility that the Chinese, or some other adversary, could target said "given" protein via a bioweapon and use it to kill huge percentages of the Western World wholesale..

Moderna, I remind you, has been trying to produce therapies using messenger RNA for about a decade.  Very lavishly funded, this little biotech is not new to the market but had never managed to get past safety problems in the past.  This is not uncommon; most biotech approaches fail.  As an investor and trader who has followed this segment of the market closely for a long time and occasionally placed bets on some of them I'm well-aware of many of the blow-ups and occasional outright collapses; Theranos anyone?  Or how about Dendreon, which allegedly had the answer to metastatic prostate cancer? They went bankrupt; seems the truth is that they didn't.

What is Moderna's history in this regard?  Just like many others they have repeatedly tried and failed.  But their story is especially troubling in that it did not just include just non-working therapies; several of theirs appeared they might indeed work but they kept hitting safety problems:

In order to protect mRNA molecules from the body’s natural defenses, drug developers must wrap them in a protective casing. For Moderna, that meant putting its Crigler-Najjar therapy in nanoparticles made of lipids. And for its chemists, those nanoparticles created a daunting challenge: Dose too little, and you don’t get enough enzyme to affect the disease; dose too much, and the drug is too toxic for patients.

Uh huh.

Too toxic eh?  What happens when the thing you produce itself is toxic -- and you didn't know this was what you were going to wind up with because you didn't bother looking in the interest of speed?

Would anyone who isn't a Mengele-level monster have gone down the road of attempting to concoct something to make the body produce the "S" (spike) protein if they knew in advance that the spike protein itself, standing alone, was pathogenic -- that is, specifically, it caused abnormal blood clotting in the body?

You see, it appears that is in fact the case.

Here we study the effect of isolated SARS-CoV-2 spike protein S1 subunit as potential pro-inflammatory inflammagen sui generis. We investigate the potential of this inflammagen to directly interact with platelets and fibrin(ogen) to cause fibrin(ogen) protein changes and blood hypercoagulation. We also determine if the spike protein may interfere with blood flow, by comparing naïve healthy PPP samples, with and without added spike protein, to PPP samples from COVID-19 positive patients (before treatment). We conclude that the spike protein may have pathological effects directly, without being taken up by cells



Even now, a year and change into Covid-19, this is not well-understood; that's not surprising since it takes time to perform the process of science.  That paper is in pre-print; only time (peer review) and then verification (repetition) by others will tell us whether the conclusion is correct or not.

That conclusion is, if true, horrifying.  In short the entire approach to alleged "vaccines" was wrong; while generating antibodies against that protein would be expected to be protective deliberately hijacking the body's cells to produce it is also directly pathogenic -- that is, it can make you sick by causing clotting that could bite you either immediately or down the road.

Every one of the current EUA'd vaccines does this.

All of them.

If this gets into your coronary arteries it could quite-easily provide the basis for an immediate or future heart attack.  It could also occlude circulation in the brain and produce an occlusive stroke that is non-responsive to clot-busting drugs.  Both events have a very high probability of killing you.

That we are recording CVT incidents now, and yes, they are showing up in all of the current vectored vaccines whether using mRNA or viral vectors is, given this paper, a big fat flashing red light and 5-alarm warning siren that IMHO should prompt immediate revocation of the EUAs for everyone except those at very high risk of mortality from Covid-19 itself.

While this study also raises the alarm for the potential consequence of natural infection that too is an indictment of what we've done up until now, as I've repeatedly pointed out for over a year.  Sending people home without treatment of any sort, such as Budesonide, Ivermectin, even HCQ and aspirin is flat-out gross malpractice bordering on depraved manslaughter.  An infection with Covid-19 may produce this very same pathogenicity and we knew that back in April of 2020 when people started showing up in ERs with elevated d-dimer numbers (which are evidence of clotting abnormalities somewhere in the body) yet those patients had no evidence of prior cardiac or other thrombotic disease.  We've known how to treat that for more than five decades and yet we continued for a full year doing nothing for those with early indicators of severe disease either because we didn't look or didn't treat, allowing the virus to rage through them until they were choking to death, all in the interest of promoting EUAs for an alleged "vaccine" pathway that now appears, on the evidence, to be manifestly dangerous.  We intentionally sacrificed a half-million Americans by, in the main, refusing to treat them immediately on presentation of symptoms even though we have multiple drugs and therapies we had and continue to have reason to believe may work.

It's quite possible this same problem presents with inactivated whole or parts of the virus too; there's no way to know at present because, once again, we did not test it.  In short it may be the case that there is no safe vaccine possible against spike-protein containing viral strains of this type; we must instead treat early as doing our level best to keep that part of the virus out of your circulatory system is the best we can do and all other approaches are systemically hazardous.

Let me be clear on the risk this paper presents and its implications with the medical facts on these disorders: Heart attacks and strokes kill close to three-quarters of a million people a year in the United States and for those who do not die, roughly another million a year, both events usually produce permanent disability to at least some degree.  Even a small elevation of the lifetime risk will wildly overrun the death count from the virus within a few years and that elevation will be permanent and continue every year until those persons at said intentionally-elevated risk expire whether by this cause or some other.  By the time this shows up in the numbers compiled by the CDC as regards causes of death it will be ridiculously beyond too late to do anything about it.

A 10% elevation in the base risk, for example, means over 75,000 more dead Americans every year and over 100,000 permanently disabled forevermore as long as we keep using these vaccines, and for decades after we stop until they are cleared from the population.  If it doubles the base risk (and it might) then we're talking close to a million excess fatalities and well north of a million permanent serious disabilities each and every year, most of which will not be blamed on the vaccines, at least not initially since there is likely to be a material lag in time between the injection and the heart attack or stroke.  This risk is wildly more than the risk that natural infection presents even without attempted mitigation of the infection since even if you believe all the "case" rates reported via PCR (which we know are BS as many alleged "positives" are false) only about 10% of the population got Covid across an entire year's time and that incidence will fall due to natural immunity with each passing year.  By contrast the risk presented from the jab is not 0.1 over the last 12 months and falling every year as it is for natural infection it is 1.0 since you took the jab and if you start taking booster shots every year you will make another roll of that die.

The goons in government and pharma may well have caused the most-serious public health disaster ever in the history of the United States and across the western world.  We must stop it right now for all except those at seriously-elevated risk from the virus itself for whom it is probably a good gamble on balance, especially when it comes to children and healthy young adults, even though a huge percentage of the harm is now assured until these risks are fully understood and quantified.

To Fauci, the FDA, the CDC, Pharma, virtually every hospital, Trump, Biden and the rest: You are all evil, money-grubbing cock-gobbling monsters and Hell awaits for what it appears you have done, along with your refusal to immediately halt the expansion and promotion of this bull**** among healthy Americans until it is fully understood and quantified.
