Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night, with that exciting feeling of having stumbled upon a little nugget of genius thought?
I did last night. I hastily scribbled down the phrase “eradicating the control group”, and went back to sleep.
Many middle-of-the-night flashes of inspiration don’t seem quite so bright in the cold light of morning.
However, I believe my midnight musings bear further examination.
Presenting the data
For the past day or so I have been working on the best way to present what I wanted to explore in the latest Technical Briefing from Public Health England.
I finally settled on creating a video, and you can find that in my previous post, "Vaccine failure?".
The data presented in the Technical Briefing breaks down numbers of “cases”, hospitalizations and deaths between unvaccinated, partially vaccinated and fully vaccinated.
If you watch the video, you’ll see that it isn’t hard to come to the conclusion that the vaccines are achieving very little, if anything at all. But this conclusion is only possible because there is still a significant portion of the population that is unvaccinated.
The “gold standard” of scientific testing of efficacy of a potential treatment is the “randomized double blind placebo control studies”. The NIH tells us this, and explains these studies here:
However, because of rushed Emergency Use Authorization for covid-19 vaccinations, Phase 4 studies of these experimental treatments, which have never been used on humans before, are yet to be completed.
Most covid vaccine Phase 4 studies won’t finish until 2023, or later.
(Although it looks like the FDA is already being pressured to consider the idea of full approval much earlier... what could possibly go wrong? According to this article in the New York Times: “The F.D.A. could grant full approval to Pfizer’s vaccine by early September.” And according to Time Magazine: “Joe Biden said last week he expects a fully approved vaccine by the early fall”)
So, with emergency roll-outs, we are all now part of the on-going Phase 4 trial.
And for any meaningful trial to produce valuable data, there needs to be a large control group.
At the moment, many nations are approaching fully vaccinated rates of 60% of the population and more, and are pushing ever-harder to round up the stragglers as quickly as possible.
An Orwellian threat
In fact the rush to do this, via both carrot and stick approaches, is taking on quite a disturbing air of what almost feels like governmental panic.
In France in July President Macron stated quite clearly his goal of 100% voluntary vaccination uptake, and if that didn’t happen, mandates for all might have to be considered. That’s a very alarming Orwellian threat... you must all volunteer, otherwise we will have to force you.
He openly admitted the restrictions imposed by the “pass sanitaire”, and the removal of free covid tests are designed to “encourage” more vaccine uptake. No bars, restaurants, cafes, cinemas, theatres, etc. for you if you don’t comply.
In the UK, on so-called “Freedom Day”, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that vaccine passports would be required for many events, a sharp U-turn from a government which, a few short months earlier promised vaccine passports had no place in the UK.
Around the world restrictions on freedom, such as masks, lockdowns, travel restrictions, testing and self-isolation rules seem designed to make life as miserable as possible for all, but are now mainly targeted at the unvaccinated.
The carrot approach appears to be equally desperate in many countries around the world. Incentives to roll up sleeves have included, but are not limited to:
- Free donuts
- Burger and fries
- Lap dances
- Joints for jabs
- Free kababs
- Free taxi rides
- Million dollar lotteries
It makes you wonder who they imagine their target audience is.
Nothing like this has ever happened before. One has to wonder why there is such a desperate headlong rush to vaccinate just about everyone.
My midnight theory
OK, so here is my midnight theory...
Many doctors have talked about the potential for “pathogenic priming”, also known by several other names, including “enhanced immune response” or “antibody-dependent enhancement” (ADE).
Here is the NIH discussion of the topic.
For something a little more accessible, here’s Robert Kennedy Jr. explaining what happened in previous coronavirus vaccine studies:
Oh dear, so we skipped animal trials and rushed these current vaccines straight to humans? What could possibly go wrong?
Here’s a link to an NIH study on “antibody-dependent enhancement”, which states: “Data suggest that anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies could exacerbate COVID-19 through antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE). Previous respiratory syncytial virus and dengue virus vaccine studies revealed human clinical safety risks related to ADE, resulting in failed vaccine trials.”
So for 30 years or so nobody has been able to produce a successful coronavirus vaccine. And yet within weeks of each other, in their haste to get their new products to market, several companies announced that they’d solved the 30-year-old puzzle. No need for animal trials, let’s just push ahead and inject everyone in the whole world with this new technology.
Well, let’s hope they got it right this time.
Winter is coming
So, with autumn in the Northern Hemisphere on the horizon, which will obviously usher in the return of all sorts of seasonal colds and flus, and possibly another wave of covid, there has to be some concern that if the vaccines do cause any level of ADE, the results could be catastrophic.
Perhaps those at the head of the charge to roll out these experimental jabs see a way the potential disaster can be “hidden”?
If there wasn’t a "control group" of unvaccinated people, it would be much easier to re-brand any ADE complications or deaths in vaccinated people as a new wave of some new deadly variant.
If only they could get the stragglers rounded up and vaccinated before September ends, and eradicate that troublesome control group...?
