Covid Update 8/27/21

It's been a bit of a rough day, but I'm finally catching up with things--well, with some things. The big Covid news today was a new Israeli study. Israeli, perhaps the most vaxxed country on earth, has developed into a sort of canary in the coal mine. Also, along with the UK, they've been pushing out some good quality data and analysis.

This is the study that has created a real buzz:

Comparing SARS-CoV-2 natural immunity to vaccine-induced immunity: reinfections versus breakthrough infections

Here's a summary--but the long and short is simply that natural immunity is significantly superior to vaccine immunity (if that's the correct terminology):

Results SARS-CoV-2-naïve vaccinees had a 13.06-fold (95% CI, 8.08 to 21.11) increased risk for breakthrough infection with the Delta variant compared to those previously infected, when the first event (infection or vaccination) occurred during January and February of 2021. The increased risk was significant (P<0.001) for symptomatic disease as well. When allowing the infection to occur at any time before vaccination (from March 2020 to February 2021), evidence of waning natural immunity was demonstrated, though SARS-CoV-2 naïve vaccinees had a 5.96-fold (95% CI, 4.85 to 7.33) increased risk for breakthrough infection and a 7.13-fold (95% CI, 5.51 to 9.21) increased risk for symptomatic disease. SARS-CoV-2-naïve vaccinees were also at a greater risk for COVID-19-related-hospitalizations compared to those that were previously infected.

In a comment early today I compiled some of Dr. Robert Malone's tweets with reference to this study. Malone sees this as a real breakthrough that may spell the end of the solid front narrative of the Covid Regime. In fact, however, we noted the other day that the rise of "breakthroughs" has led to increasingly open questioning of the official narrative--even in such MSM outlets as the BBC and Bloomberg. Clearly there's movement in the public forum. In any event, here are excerpts from Malone's tweeting:

Best comment of the day - "How about a vaccine IV drip?"

It seems like the wheels are coming off the universal vaccine policy bus. Which leaves me wondering who is going to get thrown under it.

Primary source. Here you go folks. Mike drop moment. In the land of the blind, Data is king.

When all is said and done, reality gets the last word. I think that's what Malone means when he says, Data is king.

Karl Denninger did a post on the Israeli study, as well. He draws out some further implications. The points he makes that really jump out are twofold, and I'll place them ahead of the excerpt:

1. These gene therapies operate, essentially, like monoclonal antibody therapy by a different mechanism--IOW, they cause a big spike in antibodies, but the the spike is shortlived. That's fine for a therapy for disease treatment (monoclonal) but not for a vaccine that's supposed to confer long term immunity--thus Malone's sarcasm re an "IV vaccine." So Alex Berenson tweets:

Here’s another, from Israel Sunday. Antibody titers in vaxxed people started high but fell 40% a month (!). Natural titers fell 5% a month. More side effects up front PLUS plunging efficacy. Win win!

2. The evidence is that most of the "adverse events" with Pfizer happen after the 2nd injection--which is a warning sign that repeated injections could lead to even higher risks of injury.

Now here's an excerpt from KD's post--Israel Cracks The Code--in which he spells out his reasoning on this. 

In other words the dosing they used, and the original titers, concealed the decay below effective levels which was not being tested for but would have shown up in infections among vaccinated people had the original level been lower.

That's bad; the question now becomes did Pfizer know this and do it deliberately, and if not, what is the logical explanation for the dosing used?  Why not set dosing roughly identical to natural infection?  Simple: If they did that before the four months of the study ran a crap-ton of people would have gotten infected since the antibody titer would have worn off.

It gets worse:

In our study, we show that following vaccination, the levels of anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies decrease rapidly, indicating that BMPCs may not be created adequately and therefore anti-SARS-CoV-2 humoral immunity might be transient (Ibarrondo et al., 2020; Seow et al., 2020). 

If there is little or no B-cell recall then the vaccine is a failure as it cannot stimulate durable immunity at all.  That is, the jabs are basically the same (via a different mechanism) to receiving monoclonal antibodies if you get infected; yes, you have an antibody titer but the jabs fail to train your immune system to recognize the infection in the future.  As that titer wanes the protection becomes increasingly worthless and, since we know mutational binding changes are occurring the potential for vaccine-caused harm potentiating infections remains a distinct possibility as that occurs.

In addition, and perhaps most-damning of all, we also know that the vaccines have a very high significant adverse event rate -- much, much higher than any other commonly-used vaccine (such as MMR, varicella or the flu shot.)  The really awful part of this is that most of the serious adverse events happened after the second jab, not the first one, implying that there is an accelerating risk with each successive injection.  Whether that accelerating risk "bleeds off" over the next six months or so is a complete unknown since it was never tested for, but if it does not then attempting to buy successive six month periods of protection will, inevitably in everyone, cross over into being more likely to harm you than the virus itself and might even cross over to the point of inevitable harm or death if repeated enough times.

Any of this, standing alone, if identified before release would have almost-certainly caused these jabs to be scrapped.  But that's not what happened and now we have the FDA that has actually passed on "licensing" the very same one that is the subject of this study.

Last, but certainly not least, is a post from a UK blogger that Mike Sylwester drew to my attention. As it happens, before I was able to read this closely I was discussing these topics over dinner with my wife--namely, what' up with this off season (summer) surge of a respiratory virus? I'll insert two graphs that should tell the story:

That's a "graphic" illustration of what has led increasing numbers of MSMers to raise questions about the official narrative. As Malone said the other day, there's a lot that just doesn't add up in that narrative. Or as The Blogmire puts it:

Whereas Sunshine and Vitamin D were able to deal with Covid-19 in 2020, in 2021 — after most people have taken the experimental product that was sold as the answer — they have apparently been powerless. ... For here’s the Very Important Point:

Everyone was “unvaccinated” in the summer of 2020. And the hospitalisations and deaths came down.
Most people are “vaccinated” in the summer of 2021. And the hospitalisations and deaths have been going up.

So it can’t be “unvaccination” that’s driving them up now, can it?
Because it wasn’t “vaccination” that brought deaths down in 2020 then, was it?
So it must be something else, mustn’t it?


ADDENDUM: After I published I saw a new series of excellent Malone tweets:

Remember the legacy media hype because the pediatric wards were filling up.  Lots of COVID hype. And then it started leaking out about how these cases were presenting like they were RSV. Then we learned that they were RSV. But you did not hear the media cover that.

When we finally get past all of this, the legitimacy of both the federal public health infrastructure and the legacy media will have been destroyed. And what happens then? Force your mind to think 9-12 months ahead. What do things look like then, based on current trends?

Then start preparing for that future.

Remember~ there will be a midterm election at that point.


  1. Those two graphs are remarkable.

    The most likely cause of the 2021 rises is the vaccines.

    What other explanation is there?

    1. I agree with both you and Mark, but if I were to argue the other side, I could hear them saying something to the effect that this is the new Delta and we had it covered on Alpha, but now we need to tweak the recipe and top you up so you will be safe. Mark my words, but I can already hear Toady's gravelly NY accent saying so along with his speculative BS that they might need to do it again if Gamma or Lambda make to our shores.

      The challenge now is to figure out how do we protect folks that may be at higher risk from getting sick and having as they say a "bad outcome" until we can find out if surviving a breakthrough infection will reset your adaptive immune system so you can be protected going forward and get off the endless booster train. I have 6 family members including my 81y mom that I'd really rather them not suffer the consequences of being hoodwinked into doing what they thought was the right thing. Did you see that Japan is going IVM?

      (It looks like this is suppressed news story since there were only a few sites mentioning it and looks like goulgul has only IVM history or disparaging links on the first page)

  2. Data may be king and reality may be sinking in FINALLY but it has always been intuitively obvious that the pandemic is manufactured. The scandal in the culpability of the medical profession as a whole is going to have tremendously bad ramifications. It's one thing for some high or low level tyrant in the public health bureaucracy to mislead you, but when your doctor does... Physician, heal thyself.

  3. COVID origins:
    Zelenko's testimony on vaccinations:

  4. Let's play Follow the Numbers! Every number that I am about to provide is taken from the OFFICIAL San Diego County COVID-19 dashboard. The county has just over 2,000,000 residents.
    There was a small surge in cases during July and August of 2020, and it was waning by mid-August. For the week ending 08/25/2020, there were 1,832 new cases of COVID-19. At that time, the percentage of the population that had been vaccinated was 0.0%

    For the week ending 08/25/2021, there were 9,014 new cases, or roughly 5X the number for the same period in 2020. The percentage of the population that has been vaccinated (reading closely, it appears that this means those who have received TWO jabs) is 76.1%. There is NO indication that new cases are declining. Instead, the daily numbers indicate that SD is continuing to see an increase in the rate of new cases on a daily or weekly basis.
    Let's take a look at the data for one zip code, 92173. For the week ending 08/25/2021, there were 725 new cases among residents in this zip code. The reported vaccination rate is 99.9%. I will leave it to the curious reader to decide if there is anything interesting about the geography and demographics of this zip code. The case rate for this zip code is 25,183.6 / 100,000 residents. In other words, one-fourth of the residents have had a "confirmed"" case of COVID-19. Does this number tell us anything about the development of herd immunity for COVID-19?
    The rate of hospitalizations and of deaths are starting to increase as well, but these numbers are always lagging indicators of the severity of COVID-19 infections. We won't know for a few more weeks.
    OT: This remains the best blog on the net. I am saddened and disgusted at what is being done to Dr. McCullough and at the efforts to censor what on read here. Stay strong Mark!

  5. Biden, Fauci discuss requiring COVID booster
    shots every 5 months

    Big Guy to get 10% cut?

  6. 2 min video from someone who heads the largest independent testing laboratory in Idaho.

    his lab testing is showing:

    it looks like the vax is modifying the immune system, changing it into a weakened state - there's a drop in killer T-cells - there's an uptick in other viruses - there's an uptick of 20 times increase in endometrial cancers...

  7. Is monoclonal antibody therapy having an impact, or is it a Florida thing only?

    How does it compare to Ivermectin?

    1. It's totally different than Ivermectin but it is well recommended. Actually I believe Dr. McC was recommending it, as well. Again, it's a technique that should be used at the first stage--from what I've heard. BTW, Fauci is now recommending it.

    2. I heard that the monoclonal antibodies are produced using aborted embryonic or fetal cell lines. If true, that would put them beyond the pale for me personally. Not much of a conundrum, in any case, as IVM, HCQ, and other meds are in fact proving to be very effective.

    3. First off, IANAD, but read this study which does talk about monoclonal antibodies and damages to tissue from spike proteins. It certainly looks like MCA's were harmful to gestating mice in the tests they performed and I for one would be very cautious of taking a treatment that has almost no testing with regards to pregnancy which include the vaccine and also mca's.

      "7). In addition, REGN10987 also bound to the tissues of parathyroid gland, pericardial mesothelium, and adjacent normal sclera of eye (data not shown). The data indicate that certain anti-COVID-19 S1 antibodies, such as REGN10987, are highly pathogenic because it has the high potential to bind to healthy human tissues,
      activating self-attacking immune responses and
      inducing serious adverse reactions in vivo. Based on the results, clinical detection of pathogenic antibodies during the COVID-19 infection may be helpful in predicting the consequences of a patient with a serious infection.

      Thus, pathogenic antibodies may be the cause of
      abortions, postpartum labors, still births and neonatal deaths of pregnant females (Figure 1B and 1C)."

      If Toady says it's ok, I would run away!

    4. $2100 per dose.

      USA fact check, for what it’s worth, seems to claim fetal cells were just used to test, but are not used in production.

      Another media hit job against Ivermectin:

      And yet Japan just recommended use.

      But, in Arkansa a Dr is being investigated fir prescribing. And aclu is for the investigation! Experimental treatment - Unbelievable.

  8. Increased testing capacity might be the explanation for the Summer waves this year in places that didn't have them last year. Testing was still ramping up everywhere this time last year. This could be the entirety of the effect in the UK, for example.

    However, testing isn't going away, and Fall and Winter are coming. Last year, cases took off everywhere in the northern hemisphere starting in early to mid September- a slow ramp until late October, then the first derivative just explodes upward. From the levels of right now going into September, and the testing capacity being able to test 3-4 million samples/day, it is entirely possible the we reach 300-500K new "cases"/day sometime in November and December. If that happens, the vaccines will have been proven failures- failures that cannot be denied any longer, but it is possible they will double down with new and improved vaccines covering Delta.

    I like the IV drip joke- I make a comment, I think, on an Alex Berenson tweet a few days ago that they would soon come out with the implantable COVID vaccine pump. I was joking, of course, at least I think I was joking.

  9. one of our leading advocates Dr. McC is interviewed this week by Kennedy, here - you need to scroll down below the text to hear it -

    many notable comments - incl'g he believes it's clear the vax is killing more than the virus, believe he cites data from Australia

    keep it up Mark - late in commenting but am happy to pony up $ to assist you as you search for new options
