Los Angeles, CA — Why the push for COVID-19 vaccine mandates? It cannot be concern for public health. Although natural immunity confers more robust and lasting protection than vaccines, mandates do not waive jabs for those who have acquired it (at least 30 percent of the U.S. population by some estimates).
Why this seeming contempt by public officials for the human immune system, which has fortified us for millennia against scores of contagions much deadlier than COVID-19? One reason: no one makes money off the human immune system. In more ways than one, natural immunity prevents Big Pharma from making a killing.
But anti-mandate activists have overlooked an even more sinister motivation. The need to eradicate the control group, unvaccinated individuals. They are the only yardsticks by which the efficacy and safety of vaccines can be measured. What are the comparative mortality rates between the controls and the vaccinated (for all causes, not merely COVID)? Who is better off?
We don’t know. Any more than we know if the vaccinated become healthier or sicker than controls in follow-up studies? (By this I refer not only to the incidence of COVID illness, but to other parameters of illness. If previously healthy Mildred, a middle-aged housewife, strokes out two days after the jab so she can never again function, that development merits at least equal billing with whatever improved resistance to COVID she acquires.)
But shouldn’t these inquiries have been the first order of research business, especially for experimental inoculations in a Phase III trial? Yet not a single, well-designed such study exists. Why have universities, medical centers, and our government ignored such inquiry? Simple. They do not want to document the facts about “vaccines.” And they don’t want you to discover them.
For the past century the control group, the aggregate of subjects that have not received experimental treatment, has been the sine qua non of sound medical research. The medical community accepts only drugs and procedures that produce results surpassing those produced in untreated controls. This has been dogma. Until 2020.
Control groups function as checks against researchers’ overconfidence, wishful thinking, erroneous generalizations, delusions, and falsifications. They deter compliance with the demands of pharmaceutical profiteers to produce predetermined data.
In this manner, controls challenge authoritarian dictates. Big Brother cajoles us to love the jabs. Yet why does vaccinated Johnny lie tethered to an ICU monitor, succumbing to his myocarditis, while a control, his unvaccinated classmate Billy, shoots hoops at the gym? As nature’s truth-tellers and witnesses, control groups are the nemeses of medical tyrants. They are the Winston Smiths of COVID totalitarianism.
Accordingly, vaccine mandates strive to abolish COVID-19 control groups. Once controls receive the jabs and spike proteins surge through their organs, they are controls no more. Their survival and well-being can no longer challenge official orthodoxy. If they sicken or die after the jab, the cause of their demise can never be proven, for now, they are sick like everyone else.
Absent healthy controls, authorities will shift the blame for the resulting massive outbreaks of illness — autoimmune diseases, strokes, heart failures, deadly cytokine storms that begin as common colds — to scapegoats like super-deathstar-omega variants, climate change, and Donald Trump. Without controls, no one will ever know how toxic and ineffectual the inoculations really are. The extinction of controls eliminates all trace of what might have been. Of what really is.
However, the erasure of COVID-19 control groups did not start with the mandates. It began with Moderna’s and Pfizer’s clinical trials. For a while, the controls received a placebo and not the test vaccine. So far, so good. But after the FDA granted the vaccines emergency use authorization, the developers provided the vaccine to almost all controls, thereby eliminating any significant control group and transforming their study into an unethical shell game. Now you see the controls, now you don’t. Because of this violation of research protocol, we know nothing about long-term benefits or risks. The absence of controls means that the promotion of these vaccines is grounded in fraud.
The FDA used to function as Big Pharma’s bunco squad, rooting out false claims of efficacy and safety. That was then. Now that burden is on each of us.
