One of the oddest turnarounds that we witnessed in President Donald Trump over the past four years was his skepticism toward Big Pharma and the vaccine industry. Candidate Donald Trump didn’t trust vaccines – at all – when he ran for president in 2016. Here we are in 2020, and President Donald Trump was touting Operation Warp Speed. Now that the coronavirus vaccine rollout is underway, it is… yeah… that’s really going great.
Back in 2012, Donald Trump told the world that he personally knew many families that had been harmed by vaccines:
“It happened to somebody that worked for me recently. I mean, they had this beautiful child, not a problem in the world. And all of a sudden, they go in, they get this monster shot. You ever see the size of it? It’s like they’re pumping in — you know, it’s terrible, the amount. And they pump this in to this little body. And then all of the sudden, the child is different a month later. And I strongly believe that’s it.”
Of course, if you express any skepticism toward the safety of vaccines, you are immediately labeled with the pejorative “anti-vaxxer.” If you use this term to describe people who are opposed to vaccine use, by the way – you are a monster. The vast majority of people who are suspicious or opposed to vaccines have suffered great personal harm within their families as a result of vaccines – harm that usually occurred to an infant or child. Why don’t you just call them the N-word while you’re at it?
Anyway, here we are a few years later and Donald Trump has gone from being a full-fledged vaccine skeptic to becoming one of Big Pharma’s biggest cheerleaders. What’s happening with the vaccine rollout?
For starters, as many as 40% of frontline healthcare workers in some hospitals are refusing to take the vaccine. Expect that number to increase after the healthcare industry’s spectacular PR failures this past week.
In Alaska, two nurses were hospitalized after receiving the vaccine. One of them went into anaphylactic shock and had to spend two days in the Intensive Care Unit. She could have died from the vaccine without immediate medical intervention. It’s also interesting to note that she had no history of allergic reactions to medications in the past.
In Nashville, Tennessee, a nurse got the shot on a live, televised event to try to drum up excitement for a vaccine that was developed in record time. Just moments after she received the shot, she was answering questions from reporters. She suddenly put her hand on her forehead like something was wrong and collapsed to the floor.
Treating us all like children, the nurse’s supervisor basically said, “What? Her? Oh, she faints all the time! Has NOTHING to do with the vaccine we just injected into her arm, which is perfectly safe and normal!”
It’s also important to note that the healthcare workers collapsing and ending up in the hospital from this vaccine are generally young, healthy, and at no risk whatsoever of dying from COVID. If you’re under the age of 80 and in relatively good health, your risk of dying from the coronavirus is statistically near zero. What are the odds of getting catastrophically sick from this brand-new vaccine, for which we have no data on its long-term effects?
Here’s a curious fact buried in the Pfizer vaccine trials that took place earlier this year as a part of Operation Warp Speed. Pfizer’s vaccine is a two-dose deal. You take the first dose, followed by a booster shot about three weeks later. Pfizer’s data on its own trials shows that about 1.5% of people who received the first shot did not receive the second booster shot.
Why not? Did something happen to them? Did they just forget and not show up for the booster? Or did they collapse on the floor after receiving the first shot? Pfizer isn’t answering any of those questions, making it impossible for Americans to make a truly informed choice before they decide to get this vaccine. Warp Speed, baby!
