In recent months, the attention of American citizens has been scattered, largely as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine that took over the mainstream media, and also, some of the failed policies of the Biden Administration, which led the country’s economy to the highest inflation seen in more than 40 years.
While it is true that COVID and its policies have been somewhat relegated to the background in recent weeks, we cannot and should not forget what bureaucrats in the United States and the rest of the world have done in the name of “science”. People confined to their homes without any justification, the mandatory use of masks that did not really protect anyone from the virus, and the forced vaccinations to which they subjected much of the planet.
Last week, the CDC recommended vaccination to children between 5 and 11 years of age, even though, according to a study published in February, it was determined that the effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine to treat the Omicron variant was only 12%, and when different studies have proven that children are not a population at risk with COVID.
In addition, another study published this May by JAMA Network Open found that the immunity offered by the second and third doses of the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccines disappeared rapidly. Even so, despite the fact that the vaccines are still in the testing phase and their side effects and effectiveness are still a matter of debate, a good part of the population was forced to be inoculated with the antidote.
This is why it has become common to read on social networks that the FDA and the CDC have really become the best financial backers of Pfizer or Moderna, since the laboratories, far from having to convince the public of the effectiveness of their antidotes, had the support of bureaucrats to forcibly inoculate the population.
In Brooklyn, last weekend, a 32-year-old man died after running in the half marathon due to a heart problem, and the mainstream media quickly jumped to blame the temperature. The truth is, at the start of the race the weather was above 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and at the close of the race it was above 70 degrees.
Reviewing the competition guidelines, it was found that vaccination was mandatory for participants. Obviously, we are in no way trying to blame the unfortunate death on the vaccine, but it is notable that since vaccination began, we have seen more of these types of cases in young and healthy people, so all we can ask is to have an honest conversation about the issue, and demand that the authorities gather all the information corresponding to their decision making to deal with the pandemic.
