Former Pfizer VP: ‘No need for vaccines,’ ‘the pandemic is effectively over’ | New s | LifeSite

Got to wonder how widespread this judgment is.

November 23, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – While Pfizer pharmaceutical made headlines announcing the imminent release of their COVID-19 vaccine, to much fanfare, a former Vice President and Chief Scientist for the company has flatly rejected the need for any vaccines to bring the COVID-19 pandemic to an end.

In a recent article, Dr. Michael Yeadon, who “spent over 30 years leading new [allergy and respiratory] medicines research in some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies,” and retired from Pfizer with “the most senior research position in this field,” wrote:

There is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the pandemic. I’ve never heard such nonsense talked about vaccines. You do not vaccinate people who aren’t at risk from a disease. You also don’t set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with a vaccine that hasn’t been extensively tested on human subjects.

Old news as it is.

Pfizer COVID jab warning: No breastfeeding, avoid pregnancy for 2 months, unknown fertility impacts | News | LifeSite

Would like to stay up to date on such accounts.

WESTMINSTER, England, December 4, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Government produced safety instructions for a new coronavirus vaccine indicate that it should not be used by pregnant or breast-feeding mothers and children. In addition, they state that it is unknown what effect the COVID-19 mRNA vaccine will have on fertility.

The ten-page “Reg 174 Information for UK Healthcare Professionals” describes the vaccine, how it is to be stored, diluted, and administered, and the trial studies carried out to test it. To be effective, the vaccine is supposed to be administered twice. In a section called “Fertility, pregnancy and lactation,” the guide says there is “no or limited data” on the vaccine. Therefore, it is not recommending its use for pregnant women.

Schools Might Not Reopen for ‘Maybe Another Year,’ Says N.J. Teachers Union – Reason.com

When kids are safest in school.

Remote learning has not been a sound “plan” for students. More like the opposite. But what about the main union contention, safety?

“The truth is, for kids K-12, one of the safest places they can be from our perspective is to remain in school,” then-director of the Centers for Disease Control Robert Redfield said in November.

COVID-19 infection rates at elementary schools in particular have been, compared to the country as a whole, microscopic—0.2 percent for teachers, 0.1 percent for students, according to economist Emily Oster’s database of 5,000-plus K-12 schools. The positive rate in New York City’s program of random school testing—currently standing at 0.52 percent from more than 360,000 tests since October—has consistently been around one-tenth of the overall community positivity rate.

And, observed Redfield, “The infections that we’ve identified in schools when they’ve been evaluated were not acquired in schools. They were actually acquired in the community and in the household….The data strongly supports that K-12 schools—as well as institutes of higher learning—really are not where we’re having our challenges.”

But unions, like murder, will out. We hope.

Meanwhile,

No wonder preference for school choice is spreading. Parents want to be able to predict when their kids will attend school. It’s amazing that teachers unions do not yet seem to understand how much public sentiment is poised to turn against them.

Power is their game.

The tech supremacy: Silicon Valley can no longer conceal its power – The Spectator

Nice guys? Either way, Republicans finish last.

From the story: … the Republicans had their chance to address the problem of over-mighty Big Tech and completely flunked it. Only too late did they realize that Section 230 was Silicon Valley’s Achilles heel.

Only too late did they begin drafting legislation to repeal or modify it. Only too late did Section 230 start to feature in Trump’s speeches.

Even now, very few Republicans really understand that, by itself, repealing 230 would not have sufficed. Without some kind of First Amendment for the internet, repeal would probably just have restricted free speech further.

Byron York’s Daily Memo: The Democrats’ weird, time capsule article of impeachment . . .

. . . fresh from the wonderland world of the Trump-deranged circle of Democrats at large.

THE DEMOCRATS’ WEIRD, TIME CAPSULE ARTICLE OF IMPEACHMENT. A lot has changed in the last two weeks. President Donald Trump has become former President Donald Trump. President-elect Joe Biden has become President Joe Biden. The former president has moved to Florida. The new president, in the White House, has begun to dismantle many of the executive actions of his predecessor.

And yet, on Monday evening, several members of the House of Representatives delivered to the Senate an article of impeachment that reads as if Trump were still president. It starts off like this:

york_resolution

That was just the beginning. The first paragraph of the article reads, “Resolved, That Donald John Trump, President of the United States…” The next paragraph says the same thing. The paragraph after that quotes the Constitution saying that the President of the United States “shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

The next few paragraphs detail conduct by Trump that occurred in early January, when he was indeed president. (The article of impeachment was passed on January 13.) And then, another step back in time when the article says, “Wherefore, Donald John Trump, by such conduct, has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security, democracy, and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office…”

If allowed to remain in office? Donald John Trump is no longer in office. You can Google it.

I went ahead and did so, and he’s right.

At the very end of the article, the House says, “Donald John Trump thus warrants impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.”

Removal from office? There they go again. [He’s
still president!!
] It is only in the final clause — the assertion that Trump should not be allowed to hold any federal office in the future — that Democrats get to the real purpose of the impeachment trial.

Ah-hah.

Conservative Journalist Andy Ngo Flees The Country Over Antifa Death Threats

Domestic terrorists.

The Portland-based journalist – a regular presence documenting violent Antifa activity in the Pacific Northwest (and having been assaulted for his coverage) – has fled to the United Kingdom.

“My hometown of Portland, Oregon is the epicenter of American Antifa,” Ngo told Sky News Australia in a Saturday interview. Ngo noted tthat US politicians who rightly condemned the January 6 riots at the Capitol were “at best silent last year when my city was literally under siege.”

“At worse they actually promoted some of the crowd funded campaigns,” he added.

Nany P. and husband investing big in a sure thing. Ain’t it grand being a political bigshot?

Trump establishes ‘Office of the Former President’… – CITIZEN FREE PRESS

Can’t keep a good man down.

President Trump established the office in Palm Beach County, Florida to “carry on the agenda of the Trump Administration through advocacy, organizing, and public activism.” The office gives the ex-president a formal vehicle to coordinate future public appearances, statements and official activities.

“President Trump will always and forever be a champion for the American People,” the press release said.

Note:

Obama had a similar ‘office of the former president’ in DC during the Trump administration.
