Dr. Byram Bridle, a vaccinologist at Guelph University in Ontario, has featured in a number of posts here. Lately he's best known for drawing attention to the Japanese regulatory study that exposed Pfizer's knowledge of the serious nature of possible side effects to its gene therapy injection. Just the other day Laura Ingraham brought Bridle on to respond to the "echo chamber" narrative that "we're experiencing a pandemic of the unvaxxed." Bridle's response was refreshingly forthright. Is bottom line was that this narrative is:
That's a remarkable statement given that virtually the entire scientific establishment has coalesced around this latest pro-vax narrative. Well, so have they coalesced around every other narrative that has come from on high, meaning, from Tony Fauci--Mr. Science himself.
The Ingraham interview with Bridle is only 5 minutes long and well worth your time:
Speaking about science, Israel is offering up some interesting data for anyone interested in actual, you know, science. I'm not gonna vouch for all the statements in this article, but it is Science Mag, which is very main stream science. And they're not trying to gloss over anything. First and last paragraphs:
“Now is a critical time,” Israeli Minister of Health Nitzan Horowitz said as the 56-year-old got a COVID-19 booster shot on 13 August, the day his country became the first nation to offer a third dose of vaccine to people as young as age 50. “We’re in a race against the pandemic.”
His message was meant for his fellow Israelis, but it is a warning to the world. Israel has among the world’s highest levels of vaccination for COVID-19, with 78% of those 12 and older fully vaccinated, the vast majority with the Pfizer vaccine. Yet the country is now logging one of the world’s highest infection rates, with nearly 650 new cases daily per million people. More than half are in fully vaccinated people, ...
Yet boosters are unlikely to tame a Delta surge on their own, says Dvir Aran, a biomedical data scientist at Technion. In Israel, the current surge is so steep that “even if you get two-thirds of those 60-plus [boosted], it’s just gonna give us another week, maybe 2 weeks until our hospitals are flooded.” He says it’s also critical to vaccinate those who still haven’t received their first or second doses, and to return to the masking and social distancing Israel thought it had left behind—but has begun to reinstate.
Aran’s message for the United States and other wealthier nations considering boosters is stark: “Do not think that the boosters are the solution.”
Wait a minute--this guy is seriously recommending what didn't work the first time, and what likely put Israel behind the 8-ball to begin with, as the solution? And why is Science talking to a biomedical data guy instead of, say, an immunologist?
Obviously, the Israeli data is powerful confirmation of what Bridle and others are saying. But just as obviously, what Bridle and others (Bhakdi, Yeadon, Vanden Bossche, etc.) are saying now is exactly what they've been saying for months. It's all basic scientific principles that every scientist in the field was familiar with. What's going on?
Dr. Robert Malone is recommending an article that presents the answer to that question in the starkest of terms. Not to put to fine a point on it, and this is me:
"Follow the science" turns out to mean: Follow the money.
Here's the link to the article:
Or, how Dr. Fauci & leading journals learned to stop worrying and embrace censorship
Don't be put off when you start reading and find out that the article is about old news: Covid origins and the coverup of the China Connection that Fauci orchestrated and that was pushed by the media and the science establishment for over a year. Yes, we covered that here very early on, but here's the point:
... every scientist whose emails have been released has been shown to have concerns about COVID-19 coming from a lab, even though they were writing peer-reviewed articles that claimed the opposite.
They all knew--and they lied. What Malone calls the "noble lie" was done for the money. Not really so noble. And scientists who weren't receiving grant money from Fauci--rock star Nobel winning virologists like David Baltimore--stated the truth publicly. But it turns out that the mainstream media isn't interested in the real news, after all. They're just pushing a political narrative.
Which leads to the point of this post: If they all knowingly lied about Covid origins, why be surprised that they're lying about "every scientific principle" in immunology? Follow the money--there's nothing noble about these lies.
I’m thinking of offering a bounty to any natural-origin proponent who can provide evidence of NOT holding a different position in private. If you’re keeping score, that’s 100% of natural-origin proponents [in emails released thus far] who’ve lied repeatedly to the world about what they believe is the provenance of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Here in the US, that includes Dr. Fauci - the public face of vaccines, masks, lock-downs and mandates - which doesn’t bode well for the future of “Trust the Science” once everyone understands that he was the conductor of the scientific censorship train. Fauci even literally stated that attacks on him were attacks on science; if that’s the case, it looks like the forecast for science has taken a turn for the worst.
By now, an intrepid reader might be asking themselves why a significant percentage of the world’s leading virologists & microbiologists would have been so flippant in rejecting an obvious possibility so early on in the pandemic [in fact, they began crafting the narrative six weeks before the WHO officially declared that COVID-19 had become a pandemic]. Or, perhaps others would ask the question the way I did: “Why did so few scientists speak out about the obvious possibility,” one that even my most junior Marines would’ve considered first?
The piece de resistance isn’t going to surprise anyone, because it’s money.
How much money? The answer may not sound that imposing: $3.1 billion a year in grants. However, in 2013/14 [the most recent year with solid global numbers-& only because someone published a paper about it] $3.1 billion represented 7.15% of All biomedical grants awarded by 41 of the largest public or non-profit organizations in the world. Fauci’s slice just at NIAID was just slightly below the entire European Union [27 countries at that time], good enough for a clear third place. 1st place belongs to the NIH as a whole, although the remaining $23 billion was split between 40 other Institutes:
After being in his position for 37 years, Fauci can advocate beyond his fiefdom, and that doesn’t take into account that the NIAID’s budget has been much closer to $4 billion in the last b3 years.
It’s amazing that we've even made it this far - but don’t worry, we have still have some time before the ivory tower falls. Just 3 weeks ago, Dr. Peter Hotez’s Mounting Anti-Science Aggression in the United States openly called for hate crime legislation from Congress to combat those who question scientists. He even ended with a comparison to 1930’s Nazi Germany, which seems odd for someone whose favored political party is in control and already suppressing free speech. What a perfect microcosm of pandemic-era science -- a scientist who already has Big Tech smothering the truth on his behalf, writing in a peer-reviewed journal, arguing that questioning the merits of vaccines or masks or natural origins should be punished with a felony. If Dr. Hotez can’t see which side is currently ‘burning books,’ then he’ll be really surprised when his fellow scientists are testifying under oath before Congress about their cover-up activities.
