Do Vaccines Facilitate the Emergence of COVID-19 Variants?

Luc Montagnier is a French virologist and a joint recipient of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus. In the following video Dr. Montagnier explains how the mRNA “vaccines” against the Wuhan Coronavirus can trigger the selection process for new variants of the virus.

From a doctor’s office: The human being grows desperate from scare tactics, fear and constant uncertainty

Hello, I just want to vent my outrage, anger, and despair for a moment.

I am still working in a practice with a focus on neurology / psychiatry, and what is going on now is incomprehensible to me. Since the beginning of the “pandemic” we have had about 20 patients with headaches and dizziness after a corona infection.

That’s it so far.

But now, since the beginning of the vaccinations, daily (sometimes desperate) calls about vaccination side effects, starting with permanent headache, insomnia, cases of trigeminal neuralgia, tremor, syncope and, and, and… The hardest (but fortunately very few) cases were hemiparesis and thrombosis … how can that be, I ask myself?

A small practice in a small town, and yet such a concentrated load of vaccination side effects?

Why is it not reported?

And the bad thing is that despite all the incidents in practice, we as a team are asked DAILY by the boss when we will finally get vaccinated (the rest of the team). Half of the team has had the vaccination; the other half is (still) steadfast. It shocks me and I just don’t understand how you can be so blind and just accept everything, including the side effects. This is mass hypnosis.

And I can give you a good example of this: When, as he gives the vaccination information, the doctor says. “We don’t know anything about the long-term consequences of this vaccination,” the patient eagerly nods his head and rolls up his sleeve. The main thing is getting vaccinated. And then they’re overjoyed about it.

I just don’t understand it anymore.

A few in my personal circle of acquaintances have already been vaccinated once and have not had any serious side effects, but as a specialist practice for neurology you can now see how many are NOT lucky and get serious vaccine side effects.

My view of the pandemic: humanity, empathy is gone. You are only subject to the rules. The best example: an elderly gentleman is sitting a few meters away in the waiting area and pulls his mask off; you can see that he is having a hard time breathing. Immediately afterwards, another patient says “Mask up.” Why? Why can’t you let the poor man take a breath, and even if you are terrified of being “infected” then you can communicate this with courtesy, respect and decency. But that’s almost impossible now…

The number of mentally ailing, mentally ill people has increased dramatically in the last six months. Social phobias, anxiety disorders, psychological decompensations and unfortunately an immense number of long-term patients who are stuck in severe depressive episodes again. Where is it all going to lead?

Why Does Thailand Have Such a Low Incidence of COVID-19 Deaths?

In the following video a doctor who specializes in infectious diseases for a major group of hospitals in Thailand explains why the country has so few deaths from the Wuhan Coronavirus compared with most other countries.

Corona Rules

The extent to which the Wuhan Coronavirus has degraded and deformed civil society is hard to comprehend because we’re still in the middle of it. The magnitude of the damage may not become evident for a generation or two, when our descendants look back in horror on what we have inflicted on ourselves (and them).

The three videos below deal with various aspects of the response to the COVID-19 crisis. The first is a report on a young student in Italy who was effectively carted off to the loony bin for refusing to wear a mask in school.

The second video shows the devastation of the living circumstances of an elderly woman (either 87 or 97 years old; it’s not clear) in a nursing home in Switzerland, all in the name of keeping her “safe”.

The final video reports on a new wave of coronavirus infections in France among those who have been vaccinated against the disease.

I’ve read theoretical explanations by immunologists about why this occurs. The prevailing “vaccines” use messenger RNA to cause the body’s cells to generate the “spike protein” contained in the Wuhan Coronavirus. This prompts the immune system to develop antibodies that react to the spike protein, so when the virus enters the body the antibodies attack it.

The vaccine contains no nucleotides, so it does not induce the body to produce T-cells, which supply long-term immunity to the disease. People who contract COVID-19 under natural circumstances develop T-cells in response, which give them long-lasting resistance to the disease. In contrast, antibodies produced as a result of the mRNA “vaccine” are only present in the bloodstream for a limited time, leaving the vaccinated vulnerable to the disease later on.

At least that’s my understanding of the process. Readers who are more knowledgeable about immunology may want to correct my summary.

Getting the Eyeball Jab

I went to the retinal specialist’s office today to get the latest in a series of periodic injections in my left eye to treat my wet macular degeneration. Rather than recapitulate everything, I’ll refer new readers to last month’s post for details.

As usual, the ordeal has reduced my productivity in front of this screen. There will be at least one more post tonight before the news feed, but that may be all — I’ll see how it goes.

My productivity has been further reduced by power outages. After that big thunderstorm yesterday afternoon the electricity was out for about seven hours. It went off again today for no discernible reason, and stayed out for more than two hours this time. However, about half the outage occurred while I was away at the retinologist’s, so it didn’t have as much impact.

Corona News From Brazil

The two videos below report on different aspects of the Corona crisis in Brazil. Many thanks to José Atento for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling.

The first video shows an empty Intensive Care Unit in a Brazilian hospital. The narrative about the Wuhan Coronavirus requires that ICUs be “overflowing”, that hospitals be “overwhelmed”, and that medical staff must be “stretched to the limit.” The reality, however, is often somewhat different:

The second video contains advice from Dr. Raissa Soares, who advocates early treatment and the use of various medications to mitigate the worst symptoms of COVID-19:

ICU Beds!

I don’t have any context for the brief video below. It is obviously referring to a putative shortage of intensive care beds in Berlin hospitals. However, I don’t know where the “graveyard of the beds” shown in this footage is found. Perhaps our German readers can fill in some of the background.

I Got the Hesitation Blues

Tell me how long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, or must I hesitate?

— From “Hesitation Blues” (traditional)

I can’t help but admire the term “vaccine hesitancy”. The propagandist who thought that one up should get an award — assuming there is a professional association in his field that hands out such awards.

People who don’t want to get the “vaccine” against the Wuhan Coronavirus are simply “hesitant” about it, implying that if the government or the health insurance company or local family practice doctors are patient and persuasive, those who balk at the idea of the jab will eventually come around.

We can’t call them “refuseniks”, because that term bears a positive connotation from Soviet days as a label for heroic freedom-minded people who resist the pressures of a totalitarian state.

For myself, I prefer to be called a “vaccine dissident”, but that one is obviously also verboten for the same reasons.


The Farmville Herald is a local paper in Southside Virginia not too far from where I live. When I saw the headline for the following article, I thought, Oh no, here’s another dreary pro-vax propaganda piece. But it turned out that the only propaganda was in the headline — my guess is that the paper’s editor, presumably a Gutmensch, took the reporter’s copy and wrote his own headline for it, one that carries the CDC/Fauci seal of approval.

It’s very encouraging to note that the reasons cited by the refuseniks are tropes they could not possibly have picked up from the MSM, or the CDC website, or official government spokesmen. They can only have acquired them from deplorable websites like this one. And these dissidents make up a quarter of the population!

In other words, 25% of American citizens have done their own research, using websites that the Democrat Party, the mainstream media, social media, academia, and the permanent governing class would shut down if they possibly could. And, against all the pressure that has been exerted to make them compliant, they have reached conclusions that contradict the Narrative.

That’s VERY encouraging.

I don’t think the Powers That Be can force 25% of the population to take a “vaccine” that they don’t want. They can bring to bear a lot more pressure, however, by establishing a “health passport” scheme that denies the dissidents certain privileges. Whether those will include eating in restaurants or visiting grocery stores remains to be seen.

Below are excerpts from the Herald article:

Locals discuss vaccine hesitancy

With Prince Edward County now celebrating its 10,000th COVID-19 vaccine shot being administered this week and the commonwealth only days away from opening vaccine registration to everyone age 16 or older, the community is making major headway on the immunization front.

But with most community members anxiously rolling up their sleeves to get vaccinated, there are still those who say they will never get the vaccine.

Taking to Facebook to express their opinions, locals cited everything from potential side effects to theories of population control as to why they will be declining the shot when their turn comes.

“I have kidney disease, GI (gastro-intestinal) issues, chronic pain and will not ever get the vaccine,” Facebook commenter Robin Reece Jennings wrote. “Too many side effects and no (proof) that it will not make it worse, nor is it effective.”

A recent poll from Monmouth University said 25% of Americans will decline to receive the vaccine.

Side effects are a common concern listed among those who plan on foregoing the COVID-19 vaccine, a flame stoked this week after federal health officials recommended states pause the use of the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine following six cases of a rare blood clotting disorder.


“I am just saying that I know medicine has to go through a rigorous amount of testing that takes years before being approved, and even then it can still cause problems,” Jennings continued.

Local Breanne Hicks had similar concerns. Hicks said she has an autoimmune disease and worries the side effects of the vaccine may trigger her disease to move out of remission.

“Having a vaccine doesn’t make you immune to the virus,” she said. “I’d rather see a treatment developed.”

Resident Holly Chappell Aitken said she believes the public needs to build up a natural immunity to the virus, adding she has never had a flu shot and has no plans to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Choroidal Neovascularization: A Clinical Account

Most readers will be aware that I suffer from choroidal neovascularization — wet macular degeneration — in my left eye. Like the current U.S. government, the disease is progressive. Which mean that it gets worse over time — also like the U.S. government.

I was first diagnosed with the condition a little more than eight years ago. Last year it flared up again just after the “pandemic” began. The retinal specialist’s office closed down for a couple of weeks. Since we were asked not to visit healthcare facilities unless absolutely necessary, I put off going in for treatment until a month after the new symptoms appeared. That was a mistake, of course: it allowed the new growth of blood vessels to do more damage than it might have if I had had the injection promptly. If I had it to do over again, I’d say, “Screw the CDC — I’m going in.”

I’ve written the following account for my own benefit. When I describe something as distressing as this in a detailed, detached, clinical fashion, I find it helps me cope with the awfulness of it. Putting it into words seems to allow my psyche to contain it better.

This essay has nothing to do with the mission of this blog, and may be safely skipped. However, anyone who is curious about macular degeneration, or who suffers from it himself, may be interested in my descriptions.

The image at the top of this post is a simulation of what I might see in the visual field of my left eye as I begin to ascend the stairs to the Eyrie here at Schloss Bodissey. I’ve exaggerated the effect a little so that you can see it clearly, but this is basically what it looks like at night after my eye has had a bad day. The blob in the center is the scar left by the growth of a “frond” of new blood vessels in the choroid behind the retina. When that happens, fluid leaks from the blood vessels into the macula, damaging it. It can also push the dark pigment from the choroid into the retina, which darkens the field of vision at that location. That happened to me in March of 2013, and it took more than five years for the pigment to migrate to the periphery of my vision and be consumed by macrophages.

The smaller, lighter spot in the center of the oblong blob is the location where the original eruption of blood vessels first appeared, causing a bump that severely distorted my vision just to the right and below the fovea (from my perspective — since the brain inverts the retinal image, the bump was actually above and to the left). Fortunately, the Avastin injections that dried up those new vessels also made the bump shrink, so that I no longer see any topological distortion to speak of.

Because the damage to the macula did not quite overlap the fovea, I didn’t experience severe problems with focusing in that eye. However, last year’s flare-up expanded the trouble zone upwards and to the left. The top left edge of the blob in my simulation is right on the fovea, which means that my left eye now has a great deal of trouble resolving the focus in the central area of the macula.

The past year has also brought new symptoms, ones that I hadn’t seen before. The pattern of larger blood vessels in the eye gradually became visible under certain circumstances. To get a snapshot like the one at the top of this post, I would have to close my eyes for a half-second or so and then open them again. The layout of the vascular network in my left eye then appears briefly before fading out again. The central blob is initially quite bright, then fades after a moment, but never disappears entirely.

That’s on a bad day. On a good day I hardly notice any of that at all.

I also tend to see a wavy, irregular reticulated pattern throughout the visual field in that eye. It may be the interweaving of the smallest blood vessels in the retina, but it’s hard to tell.

The upshot of all this is that the visual acuity in my left eye has been significantly reduced. On a bad day, I can’t really resolve a clear, focused image at the fovea, and the area surrounding it is now also compromised.

Eight years ago, when the bump was causing such agonizing distortion, I contrived a patch for my left eye that could be fitted over the outside of my glasses. I made it from thick brown paper cut from the bottom of a Whole Foods grocery bag. Wearing it while at the screen allowed me to continue working. Late that summer, when the bump had mostly subsided, I was able to take it off.

A few months ago, when my new symptoms were at their worst, I got out that old patch and reattached it to my glasses. It was already in fairly bad shape from having been used for several months in 2013, and it didn’t hold up very well. Last week I used the same pattern to make a new patch from thicker, more rigid dark grey paper cut from a document folder:

The Vaccination Blues

Below are three articles from Europe about “vaccines” for the Wuhan Coronavirus. The first two concern deaths from blood clots related to the experimental AstraZeneca treatment, while the third is even more ominous.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating these reports from PolitikStube.

Article #1:

EMA representative confirms link between AstraZeneca vaccine and thrombosis cases

After weeks of uncertainty, a high-ranking representative of the EU Medicines Agency (EMA) drew a connection between the corona vaccination with the AstraZeneca vaccine and the occurrence of blood clots (thromboses).

It is “clear” that there is a “connection”, said the head of the EMA vaccination department, Marco Cavaleri, in a newspaper interview published on Tuesday: “In my opinion, we can now say that it is clear that there is a connection with the vaccine,” said Cavaleri, referring to the thromboses after AstraZeneca vaccinations, in an interview with the Italian newspaper Il Messaggero. In the interview he let it be known that the EMA would officially establish the connection “in the next few hours”.

However, according to Cavaleri, it is not yet clear how the AstraZeneca vaccine triggers blood clots in vaccinated people. The EMA had scheduled a trial of the AstraZeneca vaccine for Tuesday through Friday this week.

Source: Epoch Times

Tweet from Karl Lauterbach, a politician for the Social Democratic Party in Germany:

The result is important because many elderly people have had problems with venous thrombosis. Based on all available data, the AstraZeneca vaccine is safe for them and can be recommended to them.

Article #2:

AstraZeneca: 63-year-old dies after vaccination — family files a complaint

After a 63-year-old died of multiple thromboses in eastern France after being vaccinated with the AstraZeneca corona vaccine, relatives filed charges of negligent homicide. As the public prosecutor of the city of Annecy announced on Tuesday, the complaint is directed against unknown persons. According to a report in the local newspaper Le Dauphiné Libéré, the man died around three weeks ago.

“Within a day and a half, problem after problem accumulated, thrombosis in vital organs, the liver, kidneys, brain,” said the deceased’s brother in a video published by the newspaper. The 63-year-old was brought to the intensive care unit. “It happened very quickly,” his brother recalled.

The family, who were “95 percent” convinced that there was a connection between the death of the man and the recent vaccination, tried to have the incident recognized as a result of the vaccination, according to the information. It also reported the case to the ANSM Medicines Agency, which requested more information to clarify the cause of death.

Political room: Can’t be anything. As we know from Panik-Karl and the rest of the political actors from Germany, AstraZeneca is safe for people over 60 and will be therefore used.

Eye Time Again

This afternoon I went to the retinal specialist’s office for a periodic injection in my left eye to treat an ongoing affliction known as wet macular degeneration (choroidal neovascularization or CNV). As a result, I’m running on only three cylinders this evening.

It’s a good thing I put up several posts before I left, because I may not be able to do anything else tonight except post the news feed.

Whenever I start feeling sorry for myself under these circumstances, I remember that just fifteen years ago there was no treatment for my condition, which means that by now I basically would have been blind in one eye.

So I’m grateful. Thank you, Lord, for Avastin — and for retinologists like mine.

Inertia-Selling the Vax

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been using the above graphic to illustrate my posts about the COVID “vaccine”. It’s a panel from a 1969 strip by R. Crumb from Zap Comix #3. An ancient memory of it from my hippie days popped into my head, so I tracked it down and scanned it. The strip it was taken from is called “Street Corner Daze”, a warning about the dangers of speed.

It will probably come in handy over the next few months as the push for “vaccine passports” gathers momentum.

Yesterday I received a phone call from the family practice group that serves as my primary health care provider. The young lady on the other end of the line said: “I wanted to let you know that the Moderna vaccine in. Your first dose has been scheduled for such-and-such a date; will that work for you, or do you need to reschedule?”

I wasn’t really surprised by the call, because I had read reports that this is the tack that health care providers are taking to push the experimental mRNA medical treatment they misidentify as a “vaccine”. They use a form of inertia selling to induce their patients to take the jab: We’ve set up an appointment for you; let us know if you need to change the date. That is, they don’t offer the option of not getting the shot.

I’m a geezer, but my mental faculties are fortunately still sharp enough that I can recognize when I’m being manipulated. I told her that I would not be getting the “vaccine”. She cheerfully thanked me, and said she would make a note of that fact in my chart.

I don’t know what happens under the same circumstances to people who are hard of hearing, or more confused, or entering the early stages of dementia — maybe not as bad as Joe Biden, but not always able to take in the full significance of what’s going on. I assume they just dutifully show up for their appointment and roll up their sleeve when prompted.

It made me think about who designed this vax-to-the-max sales approach and ordered their subordinates to implement it. “Follow the money” is always the best bet. The little clinic where my doctor works is owned by a larger regional outfit, but I don’t know whether that company is in turn subordinate to an even larger entity. Ultimately the Commonwealth of Virginia, the federal government, and the pharmaceutical companies are back there calling the shots, as it were, but the exact chain of command is unclear.

Well, anyway… The note’s in my chart. Now they know I’m a dissident.

My stance is very unusual among people in my social milieu, i.e. college-educated geezers, most of them retired government employees. Only one of my old friends has refused the vax (she also refuses to wear a mask — good for her).

I also don’t have a cell phone. Which makes me a complete oddball — no baby monitor, no social media, no jab. I’m just totally out of touch with the 21st century.

More Deaths in Germany Attributed to the Experimental AstraZeneca Treatment

Several more deaths attributed to the AstraZeneca “vaccine” have caused at least the partial suspension of the jab in two different localities in Germany.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating these two pieces. The translator includes this sardonic note:

Be afraid. Stay afraid, and we revel in your PANIC. Comply and follow the Judas goat. Don’t think for yourself. DIE.

First, an article from RT:

After death: Euskirchen district suspends AstraZeneca vaccinations for women under 55 years of age

The district of Euskirchen announced on Monday that vaccinations with the AstraZeneca vaccine for women under 55 years of age will be suspended with immediate effect. Two women in the district had previously developed sinus vein thrombosis after the vaccinations, and one of the women died.

After sinus vein thromboses were found in two women in the Euskirchen district in North Rhine-Westphalia after vaccinations with the AstraZeneca preparation, the district decided on Monday to stop all vaccinations for women under 55 years of age with immediate effect.

A 47-year-old patient died as a result of the thrombosis, and a 28-year-old developed complications in connection with the vaccination. The woman is being cared for in a special clinic and is in stable condition, according to a statement from the district. The Euskirchen district health department initiated investigations in both cases and informed the responsible state and federal authorities. District Administrator Markus Ramers (SPD) is in contact with the relatives. In a message from the circle:

“Since it cannot currently be ruled out that there are facts that speak against cross-age and gender-neutral vaccination of ‘COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca’, the crisis team of the Euskirchen district has decided to suspend vaccination with this vaccine in women under 55.”

The decision was made after professional advice was received from the head of the health department and the chief vaccinator. However, District Administrator Markus Ramers stated that this was a purely precautionary measure:

“No vaccine is destroyed; all women who cannot be offered a vaccination today or tomorrow will be re-vaccinated in a timely manner.”

It is a precautionary measure until the responsible specialist departments have come to a final assessment. The vaccinations for men as well as vaccinations with the vaccines of other pharmaceutical companies are also expected to continue.

Sacrificing Liberty for Fear

Once again our Israeli correspondent MC does battle with the Narrative of the Great Pandemic of 2020.

Sacrificing Liberty for Fear

by MC

Bolshevik Communism was supposed to take over the world. The Third Reich was also to be a worldwide movement. So what is ‘Globalism’ but a reincarnation of both at the expense of our liberty?

Men rise to power, and then the ‘power’ takes over. They see themselves as gods, having a vision of world betterment, creating ‘new men’ to follow their doctrines and their beliefs, or to die in their dissidence.

There has been much talk of the mRNA vaccines being a mass elimination event. Although they are probably not, it has demonstrated how easy it is now to use fear to get people to voluntarily submit to be injected with strange experimental substances, to willingly sacrifice their hard won freedom of choice for an insubstantial but highly propagandized fear.

First a word on Spanish Flu. SF is the benchmark for ‘pandemics’, but like the plagues and black deaths before it, we know very little about it except that the described symptoms match those of Reye’s Syndrome (not influenza).

The existence of the first viruses was confirmed in the 1930s with the advent of the electron microscope, but there has been a tendency to equate all undefined illness with ‘viruses’ ever since. One can read about this in the Japanese ‘enteroviroform’ (SMON) issue of the 1960’s. Here is a 1974 paper where scientists are still looking for a ‘virus’ causing SMON.

It is assumed that the Spanish Flu came back with the soldiers from the WW1 trenches, but there is an alternative explanation as well (note: aspirin is acetyl salicylic acid):

The high case-fatality rate — especially among young adults — during the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic is incompletely understood. Although late deaths showed bacterial pneumonia, early deaths exhibited extremely “wet,” sometimes hemorrhagic lungs. The hypothesis presented herein is that aspirin contributed to the incidence and severity of viral pathology, bacterial infection, and death, because physicians of the day were unaware that the regimens (8.0-31.2 g per day) produce levels associated with hyperventilation and pulmonary edema in 33% and 3% of recipients, respectively. Recently, pulmonary edema was found at autopsy in 46% of 26 salicylate-intoxicated adults. Experimentally, salicylates increase lung fluid and protein levels and impair mucociliary clearance. In 1918, the US Surgeon General, the US Navy, and the Journal of the American Medical Association recommended use of aspirin just before the October death spike. If these recommendations were followed, and if pulmonary edema occurred in 3% of persons, a significant proportion of the deaths may be attributable to aspirin.

Given that our obsession with viral pandemics is centred upon the assumption that Spanish Flu and its extraordinary death rate amongst young people was actually a viral pandemic rather than an iatrogenic accident, it is incumbent upon us to understand what is known of the event, and understand as well the many unanswered questions that still exist a hundred or so years later. I suggest reading the whole article as it throws some light on modern pandemic planning, and the assumed narrative of the ‘killer virus’ that is behind the great 2020 plandemic.

Covid-19 may well be new, and may well be the result of careless handling of bio-warfare pathogens, but its effects were minimal except amongst those compromised by age and chronic disease. It was no worse than the ‘Asian flu’ of 1957 that I can just about remember (extra school holidays).

What is new about Corona was the fanning of the flames of fear by highly paid and connected public servants and the ultra-rich, probably for their own benefit but basted with a liberal virtue-signal of supposed philanthropy. Is Fauci a hero or a cheat?
