Two New Studies that Make Me Scared of the COVID-19 Vaccine

The SARS-CoV-2 spike protein alters barrier function in 2D static and 3D microfluidic in vitro models of the human blood-brain barrier: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7547916/

Researchers used three different samples of human brain tissue to demonstrate all sorts of frightening effects of exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, including increased inflammation and permeability of the blood brain barrier.

Makes you wonder why you’d want to take a “vaccine” that instructs your cells to produce the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

SARS-CoV-2 RNA reverse-transcribed and integrated into the human genome: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.12.12.422516v1.full

The title says it all here. How bits of an RNA virus can be incorporated into human DNA. We have been assured that the mRNA vaccine, which codes for production of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, cannot be incorporated into human DNA. Here we see that RNA from the virus can…

An excellent analysis of these implications can be found here: https://sciencewithdrdoug.com/2021/02/15/breaking-study-sheds-more-light-on-whether-an-rna-vaccine-can-permanently-alter-dna/

From Dr. Doug’s analysis:

…the RNA in the vaccine is a different animal than the RNA produced by the virus. The RNA in the vaccine is artificially engineered. First, it is engineered to stay around in your cells for a much longer time than usual (RNA is naturally unstable and degrades quickly in the cell). Second, it is engineered such that it is efficient at being translated into protein (they accomplish this by codon optimization). Increasing the stability of the RNA increases the probability that it will become integrated into your DNA; and, increasing the translation efficiency increases the amount of protein translated from the RNA if it does happen to become incorporated into your DNA in a transcriptionally active region of your genome. Theoretically, this means that whatever negative effects are associated with the natural process of viral RNA/DNA integration, these negative effects could be more frequent and more pronounced with the vaccine when compared to the natural virus.

In summary, there’s a proven pathway whereby the mRNA from COVID-19 vaccines can be permanently integrated into our DNA and thereby replicated forever. The vaccine mRNA instructs cells to produce the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, which we now see can cause brain inflammation and degradation of the blood brain barrier.

Fortunately, these products have been thoroughly tested for like 6 months, so there’s nothing to worry about!!

Good Men will Continue to do Nothing

From Clint Richardson:

Meanwhile, just as the alternative media has done for decades, Fox News will continue to report on all the horrific things government does while at the same time salivating over the Untied States flag and constitution, causing the same old dissociative, patriotic Stockholm Syndrome we are continuously paralyzed by. And we will continue to worship both the source of our legal, fictional “rights” and the source of our greatest tyranny, for they are the same source. Therefore, in other words, good men will continue to do nothing because they mistake government and its legal system as that which will ultimately protect and save them. Good men will not act because they do not see what is right in front of them, that their captor is their hero, that history is a lie designed to cause that cult-like worship of a legal fiction, an artificial person (corporation) pretending to be a legitimate government, whose sole purpose is to legally protect a political and scientistic army destined to destroy every part of Nature in order to recreate it in their own image.

Here’s the garbage editorial from the NY Times that I discuss: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/18/opinion/fake-news-media-attention.html?utm_source=pocket-newtab

Is COVID fight right course of action?

By Emily Rooney-Bryan, a letter to the editor of the News and Citizen:

To the Editor:

I am a blessed to be from this place and of this place. I am grateful for the generations of Vermonters who have come before me, and those that will come after me. That being said, I came across this passage the other day and wanted to share it. I have been mulling over the use of fear as motivation for a long time now, and want to share my perspective with anyone who cares to hear it. Following is an excerpt from an old book entitled “Tao Te Ching.”

When a country is in harmony with the Tao,

the factories make trucks and tractors.

When a country goes counter to the Tao, warheads are stockpiled outside the cities.

There is no greater illusion than fear,

no greater wrong than preparing to defend yourself,

no greater misfortune than having an enemy.

Whoever can see through all fear, will always be safe.

I have thought about this concept for a long time prior to knowing it as a passage from the Tao Te Ching. Particularly I have been concerned with the concept of using fear to motivate and whether goals can ever be reached from this position.

When we orient toward fear, we move away from something rather than to it. We create separation and resistance. There are times in life when fear is necessary, but those are instances of immediate survival. Fear is a very helpful and healthy response when running away from a lion for example, but we should be wary of engaging with this form of motivation for longer than it takes to outrun the lion.

If we run on fear for too long, we begin to degrade ourselves, our environment and our community, resulting in the destruction of the very life we so fearfully cling to. This passage is particularly important to me right now while we are embroiled in the COVID crisis, with fear swirling all around us.

We have been running from the lion for over a year, some of us longer. Where are we running to? What is our goal? What are we moving toward? Is it merely about self-preservation? Not dying? How many of us are perishing as a result of not dying? Has our fear of a virus and our subsequent war on it been in harmony with life? Are we safe in our double masks, quarantine bubbles, social distancing and slathering of anti-microbials?

Simply looking at these words we can begin to see how we have moved away from life in our effort to preserve it. Quarantine, mask, mandate, distance, isolate, anti. There is no room for life in these words; they are oppressive.

Are we any safer as a result of our war on disease? Are we healthier, happier and more secure, or are we slowly perishing? What if instead we oriented toward harmony and health? What if we stopped protecting ourselves and instead operated on what is good and life promoting? What if our response to COVID was to support more farmers, build soil and get people back to the land? What if instead of the trillions of dollars spent on vaccines, we put that money into nourishing food and access to the outdoors for everyone, cleaning up our waterways and removing air pollution? What if we helped those stuck in intergenerational poverty and disease rise up and become stewards of their own bodies rather than victims?

What if rather than defending against death we created opportunity for life? Ultimately death is inevitable, but a good life must be cultivated.

Here’s the video I referenced of the alleged shooting inside the US Capitol on 1/6/21: https://gaberobertsart.com/2021/02/12/everything-wrong-with-the-capitol-shooting-in-21-minutes/

Letter to the Editor Published in The News & Citizen

Many thanks to the editor of the News & Citizen, our Morrisville, VT-based free weekly newspaper, for publishing my letter in response to an op-ed that ran in their paper. Below is my letter, and below that, the op-ed to which I responded.

The memo that inspired the op-ed, and my subsequent reply, can be found here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/presidential-actions/2021/01/20/modernizing-regulatory-review/
————-

In response to “Capitalism’s day as dominant measure of social success is over,” A View From the Hill, Feb. 4, 2021, I’m afraid I don’t share Tamara Burke’s optimism about how modernizing regulatory review will put an end to capitalism — much less prove to be a boon to the common man.

Firstly, the memo itself, as quoted in Burke’s piece, lists economic growth as one of its priorities. How does one read this and infer that the capitalist model of endless economic growth — that Burke so rightfully critiques — will be challenged?

Secondly, to expect the industries responsible for polluting our planet, poisoning our bodies and guzzling our tax dollars to suddenly change course because of a memo that sports flowery language like “the interests of future generations” strikes me as hopelessly naive.

Regulatory agencies form a series of revolving doors with the most lucrative posts in the industries they are tasked with policing. Do we believe that suddenly, thanks to this document, they shall take up the cause of the common man?

While we may indeed be witnessing the end of capitalism as we know it, what rises in its stead is a shiny new brand of fascism, wherein the final vestiges of the free market are cast aside along with our privacy and civil liberties — anachronisms no longer viable in the new age of global pandemics and racial justice.
