German whistleblower finds DNA contamination up to 354 times recommended limit in BioNTech-Pfizer vaccine

Strands of DNA
Replicating the findings of American scientists Kevin McKernan and Phillip Buckhaults, the German biologist Jürgen O. Kirchner has also found massive levels of DNA contamination in vials of the BioNTech-Pfizer mRNA vaccine deployed in the home country of the vaccine, Germany. Although commonly referred to as the 'Pfizer' vaccine outside of Germany, the vaccine was in fact developed by the German company BioNTech and BioNTech is its legal manufacturer.

Whereas Pfizer manufactures the mRNA for U.S. supply of the finished drug, BioNTech itself is responsible for manufacturing the mRNA for EU supply in partnership with European subcontractors. This does not appear to have made any difference for the issue of DNA contamination, however.

Kirchner first warned about the problem of DNA contamination of the BioNTech vaccine already in 2022 in the book Die mRNA-Maschine - 'The mRNA Machine' - which he published under the pseudonym David O. Fischer. The book contains an entire chapter on 'The DNA Contamination of BioNTech's mRNA Vaccine and its Risks' and cites European Medical Agency documents which acknowledge the problem without quantifying it.

How myocarditis became the silent scandal of COVID-19 vaccination

sick health heart balance scales
It started slowly at first - a trickle of concerning reports that something wasn't right. In January 2021, just weeks after the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines, cases of myocarditis began cropping up.

Myocarditis - inflammation of the heart muscle - had never been linked to vaccines before. So when 28 cases were reported to the U.S. vaccine adverse event reporting system (VAERS) [1] that month, it raised eyebrows..

By February, the trickle had become a stream. VAERS received 64 more reports, including two deaths [2]. Then in March, Israel [3] and the military [4] started reporting cases too.

Something strange was going on. But the authorities ignored it.

Comment: Hart has provided a concise summary of the nefarious actions of the FDA, and the vaccine ghouls. Society will be suffering from this dabacle for generations.

Baby who died 34 hours after vaccines had toxic level of aluminum in his blood, report confirms

baby died vaccines
A Maine couple last week finally got the answers they'd been seeking for nearly a year, ever since their 62-day-old son, Sawyer, died Oct. 28, 2022 — 34 hours after receiving his scheduled childhood vaccines.

According to a toxicology report, Sawyer's blood contained 95 micrograms per liter of aluminum, a level that would be toxic for adults.

A toxicologist told the couple the aluminum and antigen levels in the blood were due to the vaccines. She also said a viral infection Sawyer was being treated for could have been a contributing factor.

Sawyer's parents, Melissa — a registered nurse — and her fiancé Nick shared their story last week with journalist Jennifer Margulis.


New study suggests aspartame could cause memory and learning deficits in future generations

But industry experts maintain the safety of the low-calorie sweetener, saying 'facts are important'

The non-sugar, low-calorie sweetener aspartame — which is found in many sugar-free or "diet" foods and drinks — has been linked to potential problems with memory and learning, according to a study from the Florida State University (FSU) College of Medicine.

In the study, which was published in the journal Scientific Reports, male mice that consumed aspartame — even at levels deemed safe by the FDA — had offspring that "demonstrated spatial learning and memory deficits," a press release from FSU stated.

Over a 16-week period, the researchers studied three groups of mice.


'Hot Lot Hypothesis' - Some Covid Vaccine batches are much worse than Others

Japan Covid Vaccine
My last post presented evidence for what I'll call the hot lot hypothesis (HLH): the different rates of reported deaths among Covid vaccine batches are due to differences in toxicity, with the earlier batches being especially bad.

But some commenters brought up a legitimate issue with the HLH, which I'll call the unhealthy vaccinee bias (UVB): the earliest batches were given to the eldest of the elderly and the sickest of the sickly who die at higher rates regardless of what does or doesn't get injected into them. So hot lots might just be a statistical illusion that goes away once you control for pre-existing health factors, kind of like Covid vaccine effectiveness.

But in Japan, the sick and elderly didn't get the jabs first; healthcare workers did. In fact, the high-risk elderly only started getting jabbed almost two months after low-risk healthcare workers (February 17th vs April 12th 2021). This is noteworthy not just because it reminds us that the jabs were primarily sold to the population as a way to 'stop the spread' but also because it means the earliest batches delivered to Japan went to working-age people, giving us a chance to test the hot lot hypothesis free from the unhealthy vaccinee bias.

And if we were to search for evidence of, say, higher cardiovascular deaths in working-age males, where better to look than the monthly statistics for deaths due to arrhythmia and heart failure rather than just deaths reported after the jabs? The below graphs come yet again from Nagoya University's Prof Seiji Kojima.

Covid juice 3.0 hits the shelves in Germany: Interest is at such record lows that many doctors aren't even stocking it

Health Minister Lauterbach Receives Covid Booster Vaccine

German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach receives a Covid booster vaccine on September 18, 2023 in Berlin, Germany.
The latest Covid Juice release is for sale in Germany as of Monday, and Health Minister Karl Lauterbach was first in line. There's abundant evidence that he's not a great fan of vaccination; he got his third dose in secret, well after the rest of the vaccinators, and his claims to have gotten a fourth are subject to considerable doubt. No matter: he's learned from past mistakes, and while he's denounced the "exorbitant" profits of vaccine manufacturers and called vaccine injuries "dismaying", the Vaccinator Stand is the only booth still open at the Covid Circus, so Lauterbach has made himself the face of it. He turned 60 in February, so technically he counts as old and vulnerable enough to warrant a fifth (or a fourth) vaccination.

From Die Zeit:
[Lauterbach] has ruled out state virus measures despite rising infection statistics. Germany is "much better prepared", he said, and there is additionally "broad immunity" in the population. "We don't need any contact restrictions" ...

Voluntary masking is still advisable for those who are infected and cannot avoid social contacts, said Lars Schaade, the President of the Robert Koch Institute.

Lauterbach advises caution despite the lack of Government action. Corona is "not a cold", and permanent damage - for example from Long Covid - remains a possibility. Lauterbach therefore recommends vaccination above all for people who are particularly at risk. "People over 60 years of age and risk groups should get vaccinated, preferably against influenza as well," said the Minister.
In a separate piece timed to coincide with the rollout, Die Zeit called up a Bremen epidemiologist who says he expects masks to return to clinics and care homes, and who holds out hope for expanded vaccine recommendations in the course of the winter. I'm quite sure some care homes will once again impose inhumane mask requirements, but there's no chance vaccine regulators will urge wider uptake. We're in a long, slow process of deradicalisation, and that only runs in one direction.

Comment: Breathing a cautious 'hallelujah'. Germany seems to be coming to its senses, at least for this iteration. It will be interesting to see how the next big scare is received.


California woman loses limbs after bacterial infection from undercooked fish: report

laura barajas

Laura Barajas, 40, underwent life-saving amputation surgery on Thursday after a months-long stay in hospital battling the terrible infection
There has been a warning issued about a bacteria that may have made a woman in California sick. She is reportedly still recovering in the hospital almost two months after falling ill.

Laura Barajas, 40, started a GoFundMe campaign after the illness apparently became so severe that she had to have all four of her limbs amputated because of it. At the time of this report, her fundraising campaign has managed to raise $43,143 of its goal of $150,000.

The Centers for Disease Control recently issued a statement about vibrio vulnificus, which states that "[m]any people with Vibrio vulnificus infection require intensive care or limb amputations, and about 1 in 5 people with this infection die, sometimes within a day or two of becoming ill."


UK: ONS data show that the 'pandemic of the unvaccinated' was always a myth

vaccine booster tee shirt covid protest satire
The ONS published its latest report on deaths by vaccination status on August 25th 2023. It covers the period from April 1st 2021 to May 1st 2023. I thought you might be interested in the relative all-cause death rate of the unvaccinated and the vaccinated.

The report also covers Covid deaths. However, I'm somewhat sceptical of 'Covid' deaths as many Covid deaths were deaths 'with' Covid not 'of' Covid, so for this analysis I'm only showing the all-cause deaths.

Let's start with all-cause deaths of all people in England over 18 years of age by month from April 2021 to the end of May 2023, as shown in Figure 1.


Study finds face masks decrease cognitive function and increase reaction time

Prolonged wearing of a surgical face mask, made compulsory in many settings in many countries during the Covid years, reduces cognitive function and increases reaction time in addition to increasing shortness of breath and fatigue. These are the findings of a study published in Nurse Education in Practice, an international peer reviewed journal, on September 15th 2023.

The study, carried out in Turkey and titled 'The effect of prolonged use of surgical masks during face-to-face teaching on cognitive and physiological parameters of nursing students: a cross-sectional and descriptive study' involved 61 nursing students who volunteered to participate in the study. The sample size was determined to be adequate for the study using the statistical method of power analysis. Information was collected on cognitive fatigue and dyspnoea (shortness of breath) using a self-administered questionnaire and cognitive reaction time was measured objectively using an app. Body temperature and blood oxygen saturation were also measured.

Comment: Any parent of a small child subjected to prolonged masking could have told you the study's conclusions.


Popular nasal decongestant doesn't actually relieve congestion, FDA advisers say

The leading decongestant used by millions of Americans looking for relief from a stuffy nose is no better than a dummy pill, according to government experts who reviewed the latest research on the long-questioned drug ingredient.

Advisers to the Food and Drug Administration voted unanimously on Tuesday against the effectiveness of the key drug found in popular versions of Sudafed, Dayquil and other medications stocked on store shelves.

"Modern studies, when well conducted, are not showing any improvement in congestion with phenylephrine," said Dr. Mark Dykewicz, an allergy specialist at the Saint Louis University School of Medicine.

The FDA assembled its outside advisers to take another look at phenylephrine, which became the main drug in over-the-counter decongestants when medicines with an older ingredient — pseudoephedrine — were moved behind pharmacy counters. A 2006 law had forced the move because pseudoephedrine can be illegally processed into methamphetamine.
