Editor’s Note: See our Covid section here.
The Biden Pentagon is forcing soldiers discharged for refusing the COVID vaccine to pay back their signing bonuses despite the termination of the military’s vaccine mandate by law. That doesn’t seem fair to me, but the government’s other COVID policies are just as misguided, starting with the lockdowns.
The public health experts could not have been more wrong about the lockdowns. The experts failed to account for learning losses incurred by shutting schools. Learning loss has been openly discussed for a while now, but the knock-on effects have not. The workforce of the future will be lower-skilled due to the lockdowns, leaving students with the prospect of 2 to 9 percent lower lifetime income as a result. But the economic fallout doesn’t stop there. This translates into future GDP loss of 0.6 to 2.9 percent every year for the rest of the 21st century. Betcha the public health experts didn’t think about any of that. They failed to think systemically when they were locking us up and shutting down schools.
Britain is facing years of excess deaths from the lockdown. Thousands of routine medical treatments and appointments were delayed in the lockdown, which resulted in a lot of heart disease and developing cancers not being caught early. The bill is coming due.
Fresh evidence has come in proving the experts were also wrong about masks. A new peer-reviewed, randomized controlled trial showed no significant difference between N95 masks and surgical masks for the prevention of contracting COVID. N95 masks were thought to be the gold standard offering the highest protection, and surgical masks medium protection. This study followed a previous study showing no difference between wearing a surgical mask and no mask at all. Remember, in a deposition, Anthony Fauci could not name a single study showing masks to be effective.
We also have more evidence the experts were wrong about natural immunity. They pushed COVID vaccines as affording better immunity, contrary to common sense. But a new study shows children developing natural immunity after exposure to COVID had better immunity than children who were vaccinated. It took a long time, but the experts and pontificators are finally starting to admit they were wrong about natural immunity. Two new studies show mRNA vaccines produce less effective antibodies than traditional vaccines do. A Pfizer scientist and a member of Anthony Fauci’s staff were on one of the studies. And for you Democrats out there who won’t believe anything until you read it in the Washington Post, listen up:
abundant research shows natural immunity conveys excellent protection against covid. One Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study found that vaccinated people who never had covid were at least three times as likely to be infected as unvaccinated people with prior infection. And a Lancet study found that those who were vaccinated but never had covid were four times as likely to have severe illness resulting in hospitalization or death compared to the unvaccinated who recovered from it. Protection from natural immunity also wanes at a slower rate than from vaccination.
There’s also more data now showing the vaccines were not all they were cracked up to be and cause problems themselves, starting with negative efficacy. A Cleveland Clinic study showed people who got vaccinated were at greater risk of contracting COVID than those who did not. Stunningly, people who received more than three vaccines were at the highest risk of all. Finally, just as I told you 16 months ago, COVID vaccines cause new COVID variants to appear. [Daily Skirmish – 9/17/21] This is backed up by new studies suggesting COVID vaccines are contributing to viral evolution.
There’s more. Come back tomorrow and I’ll show you more reasons why the government’s phony COVID narratives and resulting misguided policies did great harm.
