Fauci Dismisses “Freedom” In Call For Vaccine Mandates: “The Time Has Come. Enough Is Enough.”
“We’ve just got to get people vaccinated.”
(Tony Fauci knows full-well that the selection pressures created by non-sterilizing vaccines, which allow vaccinated hosts to carry mutating coronavirus in their noses, is what is inducing vaccine-resistant viral mutants. It is usual and expected.)
Fauci then dismissed freedom as an after thought, noting “I know I respect people’s freedom, but when you’re talking about a public health crisis that we’ve been going through for well over a year and a half, the time has come. Enough is enough. We’ve just got to get people vaccinated.”
“If we keep lingering without getting those people vaccinated that should be vaccinated, this thing could linger on, leading to the development of another variant which could complicate things.” Fauci further proclaimed.
Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine does not have FDA approval. Pfizer vaccine has a continuation of the EUA, Emergency Use Authorization, which shields Pfizer completely from any liability for all of those deaths and side effects.
Pfizer can keep selling and using all of their vaccine stock without any liability, and while making profit. Pfizer benefits from the good-publicity and the proliferation of vaccine mandates, which arise from FDA approval of the similar, but legally distinct BionTech product.
BionTech has no real stock of vials in the US, and does carry some legal liability, which will adhere to their renamed product, when it is released here.
This is the “best of both worlds” for the fevered rush (why?) to get a needle in every single arm right away.
Pfizer’s FDA approval research will be ready for submission in 2025. Pfizer eliminated the control group by unblinding the study and telling all the saline recipients that they got saline, and could get the real thing for free. Almost all of them did.
Eliminating the control group was portrayed as noble, but it also obscures evidence of adverse reactions and deaths in the treatment arm.
Full analysis here is bullet pointed and easy to read:

Peter McCullough MD: (It’s an “Enhanced Carrier State” This hospital was like The Diamond Princess, but vaccinated.)
A groundbreaking preprint paper by the prestigious Oxford University Clinical Research Group, published Aug. 10 in The Lancet, includes alarming findings devastating to the COVID vaccine rollout.
The study found vaccinated individuals carry 251 times the load of COVID-19 viruses in their nostrils compared to the unvaccinated.
While moderating the symptoms of infection, the jab allows vaccinated individuals to carry unusually high viral loads without becoming ill at first, potentially transforming them into presymptomatic superspreaders.
This phenomenon may be the source of the shocking post-vaccination surges in heavily vaccinated populations globally...
The scientists studied healthcare workers who were unable to leave the hospital for two weeks. The data showed that fully vaccinated workers — about two months after injection with the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine (AZD1222) — acquired, carried and presumably transmitted the Delta variant to their vaccinated colleagues.
They almost certainly also passed the Delta infection to susceptible unvaccinated people, including their patients. Sequencing of strains confirmed the workers transmitted SARS-CoV-2 to one another...
The conclusions of the Chau paper support the warnings by leading medical experts that the partial, non-sterilizing immunity from the three notoriously “leaky” COVID-19 vaccines allow carriage of 251 times the viral load of SARS-CoV-2 as compared to samples from the pre-vaccination era in 2020.
Thus, we have a key piece to the puzzle explaining why the Delta outbreak is so formidable — fully vaccinated are participating as COVID-19 patients and acting as powerful Typhoid Mary-style super-spreaders of the infection.
Here is that paper: Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 Delta Variant Among Vaccinated Healthcare Workers, Vietnam
Analysis of Public Health England statistics:
Latest PHE Data Shows Vaccine Effectiveness Down to Just 15% in the Over-50s, 37% in the Under-50s. Deaths Cut by 76% in Over-50s, But Just 12% in Under-50sAugust 25, 2021 at 4:16 pm #85299

There is now a class action suit by members of the US armed services against the Pentagon vaccine mandate:
“The Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin (the “SECDEF”) has publicly notified Plaintiffs, via Memo, that he will seek authorization from the President of the United States of America (the “President”), to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine on or about September 15, 2021,” the plaintiffs note. “Upon information and belief, the DoD is already vaccinating military members in flagrant violation of its legal obligations and the rights of servicemembers under federal law and the Constitution.”
“Army Regulation 40-562 provides documented survivors of an infection, a presumptive medical exemption from vaccination because of the natural immunity acquired as a result of having survived the infection,” the legal complaint added.
“General examples of medical exemptions include the following… Evidence of immunity based on serologic tests, documented infection, or similar circumstances,” the lawsuit cites.
The best population-psychology analysis of the Afghanistan withdrawal debacle, still underway, which I have seen, by Ben Hunt; (Baked-in 20 years ago.)
How is it possible that the world’s preeminent “intelligence community” – the NSA and the DIA and the NRO and the CIA and whole alphabet soup of associated agencies – with still more trillions of dollars of resources at their disposal, would fail to identify the catalyzing impact of a State Dept. announcement that the gig was up and the US government was abandoning Kabul? I don’t think it IS possible.
You’ll notice what I’m not saying. I’m not saying that the White House or the US State Dept. are too smart to make a boneheaded announcement of an embassy withdrawal. I’m also not saying that they’re stupid. What I AM saying is that both White House staff and non-career State Dept. staff devote whatever smarts they have to the domestic political ramifications of everything they do. What I AM saying is that the White House does not give a rat’s ass about Afghanistan except as it impacts domestic politics. What I AM saying is that the White House relies on the DOD and the IC to advise them on what’s actually going to happen in a place like Afghanistan if they do this or they do that.
I think the White House got some bad advice and made a boneheaded move.
Or more probably still, I think the boneheaded moves of this White House – designed entirely with an eye towards domestic politics – were met with oh-sure-boss-whatever-you-say indifference by people in the DOD and IC who knew better but were only too happy to see a painful debacle unfold.
The dominant narratives today are all strawmen – intentionally magnified and absurd counterfactuals to which the projected narrative stands in oh-so-bold opposition. You think the Afghanistan endgame was mangled by the Biden White House? Why you must be in favor of Forever Wars! TM. You think the Biden White House has the most coherent and correct policy for Afghanistan of any Administration over the past 20 years? Why you must be in favor of Abandoning Our Allies!
But that’s exactly what I think. I think the Biden White House has the most coherent and correct policy for Afghanistan of any Administration over the past 20 years AND I think that’s faint praise AND I think they completely mangled the endgame because all they think about is domestic politics AND I think the DOD and IC knew better because they of all people understand the Common Knowledge Game.
Everyone is gaslighting everyone. Everyone thinks they are a player.
I suspect this man profoundly understands the weaknesses of the US military at ground level.
Taliban Appoints former Gitmo Detainee as Afghanistan’s Defense Minister
Afghanistan’s new Taliban government has appointed former Guantanamo detainee mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir as it’s acting defense minister, according to Qatari based Al Jazeera news channel on Tuesday, subsequently reported in Reuters.
He was among the first senior Taliban commanders to enter Kabul last week as the group overran the capital amid the U.S. troop exit, and after U.S.-trained national forces largely fled. Until being named as Defense Minister, Qayyum was deputy to the Taliban’s commander-in-chief, Mullah Yaqoob.

The study found vaccinated individuals carry 251 times the load of COVID-19 viruses in their nostrils compared to the unvaccinated.
What the paper actually says is
Viral loads of breakthrough Delta variant infection cases were 251 times higher than those of cases infected with old strains detected between March-April 2020.
The comparison is between vaccinated people with the Delta variant and unvaccinated people with the Alpha variant. The simple comparison of vaccinated and unvaccinated viral loads made by the Defender is at best conjecture and not supported by the paper they cite. One can argue that there is no Delta variant, but that is a different issue. Including false claims diminishes the impact of any true claims one makes.August 25, 2021 at 6:36 pm #85318

Yes, odd. I know that there is a lot of skepticism regarding PCR testing here…but in my personal lived experience PCR testing had no false positives…did the friend have a PCR test in the interim? It’s possible that the virus was not fully overcome. (My sister had that with chicken pox.).

Dr. Fleming has a detailed treatment for covid vaccine adverse events, see number 8 on this list:
Step #4 on his treatment flow chart is to “address potential amyloid production and neurological sequelae resulting from prion-like domains on spike protein,” and the “required medication/supplements” includes some prescription meds.
Another source of related information is this Vaccine Side Effects Protocol, but the treatments are all OTC and generally meant to be started before the vaxx shots.
