More C0\/-Idiocy from the Clown Department ? The C0\/-idiocy Award
Let me ask you a question. Look at these three people. Tell me which one is the clown ? If you answered all three, then congratulations, you just joined Moms Across America labeled as “domestic terrorists” by the Justice Department.
Ānthony Ƒ@uci (center), our esteemed leader at the NIH has been nominated to receive the C0\/-idiocy Award because of his unwavering loyalty to Big Pharma. Drug Companies need money, too !! His award is well deserved for many accomplishments.
1) Blocked use of Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin claiming they are ineffective for C0\/lD and cause severe adverse side effects. Are you a horse?
2) Denied the existence of Natural Immunity because it might cause \/@ccine hesitancy? Already had C0\/lD and recovered? Get the vaccine anyway. It is good for you, and makes you a real American !! Never mind the15,000 dead reported in VAERS. Never mind the myocarditis. None of them were caused by the \/@ccine, right ? Just ask any Clown.
3) Funded Gain of Function Research in Wuhan lab. Hey wait, no he didn’t. Well we are not really sure. Let’s ask Joe Biden. Is he a Clown too?
The second Award for C0\/-idiocy goes to our beloved Secretary of Health and Human resources, Xavier Becerra (far right). His award is timely and well deserved for his amazing defense of all who believe the earth is round, and for calling out the “Flat Earthers” . You know, those who have natural immunity after C0\/lD and declined the jab. Well done Mr. Becerra !!! You have proved once again the earth really is flat !! Stop Clowning Around !
Above video: Rand Paul discusses with health secretary Xavier Becerra the topic of natural immunity, telling him to his face that he is a “arrogant, authoritarian, and un-American for ridiculing people who choose natural immunity over vaccinations”.
Third C0\/-idiocy Award
The Third C0\/-idiocy Award goes to our beloved president “sleepy Joe” Biden, Well wait, not to Sleepy Joe. The Clown C0\/-idiocy award goes to the anonymous handlers who write the material mindlessly spouted in front of television cameras by our beloved charismatic president, Sleep Joe. Here is a quote from the Tucker Carlson show on the inspiring Joe Biden speech:
“The unvaccinated are dangerous, he (Sleepy Joe) announced, they are diseased, dirty, unpatriotic, they are selfish, they are pathogens in human form. They have caused this deadly virus to ‘spread to our children,’ to spread throughout society. They suffered because of their absurdity, and their self-inflicted suffering burdens the rest of us. They ‘overcrowd our hospitals’ like a plague of swarming gasping insects. As they lie there ventilated, dying, reaping the rewards of their own sins, these miscreants ‘leave no room for someone with a heart attack or in need of a cancer operation’….“These people get no sympathy, because they are barely people,” Tucker added. “The unvaccinated, Biden told us, die their much-deserved deaths, but even as they die, they burden the rest of us. That’s how horrible they are, they are subhuman wreckers of a nation.” (bold text mine) end quote Tucker Carlson News

Now you can understand how we all love “Sleepy Joe” so much. Of course he won the 2020 election by a landslide. It seems unbelievable, yet we all voted for a Clown, or maybe not. Maybe the Clown was elected by thousands of “Ghost Voters”, slipped into our election servers by foreign hackers. Or maybe the bad actors were a few tech-savvy twelve year olds playing “trick or treat” with us. Apparently it is that easy. Sleepy Joe is so charismatic and beloved by the population that he was ushered into office with the highest number of votes in US history ever ? Yet, there you have it. We all love our Clowns!!! Next election, who will win the coveted office ? Perhaps Bozo the Clown? We love him too.

Fourth C0\/-idiocy Award
The fourth C0\/-idiocy Award goes to all \/@ccinated people who shun the Un\/@accinated. A recent study from UC Davis by Dr. Charlotte Acharya shows that vaccinated people with “breakthrough C0\/lD infections” have exactly the same viral load in the nose and throat as unvaccinated people (either symptomatic or asymptomatic).
This means the V@xxed person can get C0\/lD from another \/@xxed person same as from an UN-\/@xxed person. OOPS ! Wondering what this means? Why, of course, it means the vaccine is “safe and effective” ! The \/@ccine is not a failure…that is just the way it works. Just ask any Clown.
(62) See: Charlotte Acharya, et al. “Acharya Charlotte No Significant Difference in Viral Load Between Vaccinated and Unvaccinated, Asymptomatic and Symptomatic Groups Infected with SARS-CoV-2 Delta Variant.” medRxiv (2021). See Fig. 1 below:
Abstract: We found no significant difference in cycle threshold values between vaccinated and unvaccinated, asymptomatic and symptomatic groups infected with SARS-CoV-2 Delta. Given the substantial proportion of asymptomatic vaccine breakthrough cases with high viral levels, interventions, including masking and testing, should be considered for all in settings with elevated COVID-19 transmission.
The Fifth C0\/-idiocy award goes to all those people who trusted the Clowns (above header image) and trusted the Drug Companies. They would never lie to us, would they? The \/@ccine immunity wanes and we need a booster every six months? Hey, I actually want another jab every six months. I just love them !!! Oh, that only means the \/@ccine is “safe and effective”, right? If you believe that, I have a bridge to nowhere to sell you.

1) Marty Makary MD Natural Immunity is Powerful Washington Post….
COvid Recovery Confers Natural lmmunity Superior to Vaccine lmmunity….700,000-person study from Israel 9/1/21 (Gazit) : people with prior Covid infection are 27 times less likely to get a second symptomatic Covid infection than those who were Vaccinated ! and even a mild covid infection resulted in long-lasting immunity.
2) Gazit, Sivan, et al. “Comparing SARS-CoV-2 natural immunity to vaccine-induced immunity: reinfections versus breakthrough infections.” medRxiv (2021).(Israel –July-Aug 2021)
CONCLUSION: “This study demonstrated that natural immunity confers longer lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization caused by the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, compared to the BNT162b2 two-dose vaccine-induced immunity. “ (Gazit, 2021)
3) Shrestha, Nabin K., et al. “Necessity of COVID-19 vaccination in previously infected individuals.” medRxiv (2021). Cleveland Clinic Study.: A Retrospective Cohort Study. Preprint. Employees of the Cleveland Clinic Health System working in Ohio.
Results Among the 52238 included employees, 1220 (47%) of 2579 previously infected subjects received the vaccine, compared with 29461 (59%) of 49659 not previously infected. The cumulative incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection did not differ among previously infected unvaccinated subjects, previously infected subjects who were vaccinated, and previously uninfected subjects who were vaccinated, and was much lower than that of previously uninfected subjects who remained unvaccinated. Not one of the 1359 previously infected subjects who remained unvaccinated had a SARS-CoV-2 infection over the duration of the study.
The study concludes, “individuals who have had SARS-CoV-2 infection are unlikely to benefit from COVID-19 vaccination, and vaccines can be safely prioritized to those who have not been infected before.”
Study only looked at individuals over a five-month period. Importantly, not a single incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection was observed in previously infected participants with or without vaccination.
4) Sheehan, Megan et al. “Reinfection rates among patients who previously tested positive for COVID-19: a retrospective cohort study.” Clin Infect Dis. 2021 Mar 15 : ciab234.
Retrospective cohort study of one multi-hospital health system (Cleveland Clinic) included 150,325 patients tested for COVID-19 infection via PCR from March 12, 2020 to August 30, 2020.
Conclusions: Prior infection in patients with COVID-19 was highly protective against reinfection and symptomatic disease. This protection increased over time, suggesting that viral shedding or ongoing immune response may persist beyond 90 days and may not represent true reinfection.
5) Krammer, Florian. “Correlates of protection from SARS-CoV-2 infection.” The Lancet 397.10283 (2021): 1421-1423.
The findings of the authors (Hall, 2021) suggest that infection and the development of an antibody response provides protection similar to or even better than currently used SARS-CoV-2 vaccines.
6) Hall, Victoria Jane, et al. “SARS-CoV-2 infection rates of antibody-positive compared with antibody-negative health-care workers in England: a large, multicentre, prospective cohort study (SIREN).” The Lancet 397.10283 (2021): 1459-1469.
A large, multicentre, prospective cohort study was done, with 30 625 participants recruited from publicly funded hospitals in all regions of England.
A previous history of SARS-CoV-2 infection was associated with an 84% lower risk of infection, with median protective effect observed 7 months following primary infection. This time period is the minimum probable effect because seroconversions were not included. This study shows that previous infection with SARS-CoV-2 induces effective immunity to future infections in most individuals.
7) Abu-Raddad, Laith J., et al. “SARS-CoV-2 antibody-positivity protects against reinfection for at least seven months with 95% efficacy.” EClinicalMedicine 35 (2021): 100861.
Among 43,044 antibody-positive persons who were followed for a median of 16.3 weeks (range: 0–34.6), 314 individuals (0.7%) had at least one PCR positive swab ≥14 days after the first-positive antibody test. Of these individuals, 129 (41.1%) had supporting epidemiological evidence for reinfection. Reinfection was next investigated using viral genome sequencing. Applying the viral-genome-sequencing confirmation rate, the incidence rate of reinfection was estimated at 0.66 per 10,000 person-weeks (95% CI: 0.56–0.78). Incidence rate of reinfection versus month of follow-up did not show any evidence of waning of immunity for over seven months of follow-up. Meanwhile, in the complement cohort of 149,923 antibody-negative persons followed for a median of 17.0 weeks (range: 0–45.6), incidence rate of infection was estimated at 13.69 per 10,000 person-weeks (95% CI: 13.22–14.14).
Efficacy of natural infection against reinfection was estimated at 95.2% (95% CI: 94.1–96.0%). Reinfections were less severe than primary infections. Only one reinfection was severe, two were moderate, and none were critical or fatal. Most reinfections (66.7%) were diagnosed incidentally through random or routine testing, or through contact tracing.
Reinfection is rare in the young and international population of Qatar. Natural infection appears to elicit strong protection against reinfection with an efficacy ~95% for at least seven months.
8) Leidi, Antonio, et al. “Risk of Reinfection After Seroconversion to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2): A Population-based Propensity-score Matched Cohort Study.” Clinical Infectious Diseases (2021).
Among 8344 serosurvey participants, 498 seropositive individuals were selected and matched with 996 seronegative controls. After a mean follow-up of 35.6 (standard deviation [SD] 3.2) weeks, 7 out of 498 (1.4%) seropositive subjects had a positive SARS-CoV-2 test, of whom 5 (1.0%) were classified as reinfections. In contrast, the infection rate was higher in seronegative individuals (15.5%, 154/996) during a similar follow-up period (mean 34.7 [SD 3.2] weeks), corresponding to a 94% reduction in the hazard of having a positive SARS-CoV-2 test for seropositives. Seroconversion after SARS-CoV-2 infection confers protection against reinfection lasting at least 8 months.
9) Flacco, M. E., et al. “Rate of reinfections after SARS-CoV-2 primary infection in the population of an Italian province: a cohort study.” Journal of Public Health (2021).
final sample consisted of 7173 residents. Main findings of this study: During the first 15 months of SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, in the general population of an Italian Province, we observed a 0.33% reinfection rate among the subjects who recovered from a previous infection (symptomatic or asymptomatic). Most of the episodes were asymptomatic or paucisymptomatic, and only one subject deceased after the second infection (0.01%).
Finally, given the lack of data on the long-term duration of both the natural immunity and that conferred by the vaccines,13 the absence of reinfections after twelve months of follow-up is certainly reassuring and may suggest a longer protection than the nine months currently recommended for the COVID pass.10
10) Kojima, Noah, et al. “Incidence of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 infection among previously infected or vaccinated employees.” medRxiv (2021).
Conclusion Previous SARS-CoV-2 infection and vaccination for SARS-CoV-2 were associated with decreased risk for infection or re-infection with SARS-CoV-2 in a routinely screened workforce. The was no difference in the infection incidence between vaccinated individuals and individuals with previous infection.
11) Kojima, Noah, N. K. Shrestha, and Jeffrey D. Klausner. “A Systematic Review of the Protective Effect of Prior SARS-CoV-2 Infection on Repeat Infection.” medRxiv (2021).
Conclusions The protective effect of prior SARS-CoV-2 infection on re-infection is high and similar to the protective effect of vaccination.
12) O Murchu, Eamon, et al. “Quantifying the risk of SARS‐CoV‐2 reinfection over time.” Reviews in medical virology (2021): e2260.
Eleven large cohort studies were identified that estimated the risk of SARS‐CoV‐2 reinfection over time, including three that enrolled healthcare workers and two that enrolled elderly care home residents. All studies reported low relative SARS‐CoV‐2 reinfection rates in individuals with prior evidence of infection, compared with those without, for up to 10 months.
13) Petráš, Marek. “Highly effective naturally acquired protection against COVID-19 persists for at least one year: A meta-analysis.” Journal of the American Medical Directors Association (2021).
This meta-analysis confirmed a high (87%) level of protection acquired after COVID-19. When assessing the efficacy in symptomatic patients only, their 92% level of protection was close to that seen postvaccination.
As naturally acquired immunity to SARS-CoV-2 infection can dramatically reduce the risk of reinfection within at least 1 year, one may reasonably expect that vaccine-induced protection could confer a similar level of protection against COVID-19 for the first year.

S-specific BMPCs were not detected in aspirates from 11 healthy individuals with no history of SARS-CoV-2 infection. We show that S-binding BMPCs are quiescent, which suggests that they are part of a stable compartment. Consistently, circulating resting memory B cells directed against SARS-CoV-2 S were detected in the convalescent individuals.

Setting was a Houston Wedding with fewer than 100 guests. Attendance required guests be fully vaccinated and took place outdoors in a large, open-air tent. To date, 6 individuals have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, All 6 patients were symptomatic. One patient severely enough to receive monoclonal antibody infusion treatment (Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.) and one patient has died. (15% IFR). All 6 samples were identified as the SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant. Encounter timings and viral sequence similarities suggest the strain containing the Delta variant was transmitted to wedding guests from two patients travelling from India. With no history of vaccine failure in these patients, our observations suggest these are true cases of vaccine breakthrough, mediated by the Delta variant.

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) transmission among non-close contacts is not infrequent. We evaluated the proportion and circumstances of individuals to whom SARS-CoV-2 was transmitted without close contact with the index patient in a nosocomial outbreak in a tertiary care hospital in Korea.
From March 2020 to March 2021, there were 36 secondary cases from 14 SARS-CoV-2 infected individuals. Of the 36 secondary cases, 26 (72%) had been classified as close contact and the remaining 10 (28%) were classified as non-close contact. Of the 10 non-close contact, 4 had short conversations with both individuals masked, 4 shared a space without any conversation with both masked, and the remaining 2 entered the space after the index had left. At least one quarter of SARS-CoV-2 transmissions occurred among non-close contacts. The definition of close contact for SARS-CoV-2 exposure based on the mode of droplet transmission should be revised to reflect the airborne nature of SARS-CoV-2 transmission.

Vaccine Waning Efficacy/ Breakthrough Cases

We found, by using a novel spatial-dynamic model and recent aggregate data from Israel, that this new surge of cases is partiality due to a decline in the shielding of those who were vaccinated about six months ago. Also, we found a decrease in the vaccine’s efficacy against severe morbidity for the early elderly population compared to the rest of the vaccinated population.

39) Levine-Tiefenbrun, Matan, et al. “Viral loads of Delta-variant SARS-CoV2 breakthrough infections following vaccination and booster with the BNT162b2 vaccine.” medRxiv (2021).
The BNT162b2 vaccine showed high real-life effectiveness both at preventing disease and in reducing viral loads of breakthrough infections, but coincidental with the rise of the Delta-variant SARS-CoV2, these protective effects have been decreasing, prompting a third, booster, vaccine inoculation. Here, analyzing viral loads of over 11,000 infections during the current wave in Israel, we find that even though this wave is dominated by the Delta-variant, breakthrough infections in recently vaccinated patients, still within 2 months post their second vaccine inoculation, do have lower viral loads compared to unvaccinated patients, with the extent of viral load reduction similar to pre-Delta breakthrough observations. Yet, this infectiousness protection starts diminishing for patients two months post vaccination and ultimately vanishes for patients 6 months or longer post vaccination. Encouragingly, we find that this diminishing vaccine effectiveness on breakthrough infection viral loads is restored following the booster vaccine. These results suggest that the vaccine is initially effective in reducing infectiousness of breakthrough infections even with the Delta variant, and that while this protectiveness effect declines with time it can be restored, at least temporarily, with a booster vaccine.

“I’ve had COVID in the past, and so our understanding of antibodies, of natural immunity has changed a great deal from the onset of the pandemic and is still evolving. I understand that the vaccine would help if you catch COVID, you’ll be able to have less symptoms from contracting it. But with me having COVID in the past and having antibodies, with my current age group and physical-fitness level, it’s not necessarily a fear of mine. Taking the vaccine, like I said, it would decrease my chances of having a severe reaction, but it does open me up to the – albeit rare chance – but the possibility of having an adverse reaction to the vaccine itself. I don’t believe that being unvaccinated means infected or being vaccinated means uninfected. You can still catch COVID with or with not having the vaccine.”end quote

In this retrospective cohort study, we analysed electronic health records of individuals (≥12 years) who were members of the health-care organisation Kaiser Permanente Southern California (CA, USA), to assess BNT162b2 vaccine effectiveness against SARS-CoV-2 infections and COVID-19-related hospital admissions for up to 6 months. Participants were required to have 1 year or more previous membership of the organisation. Outcomes comprised SARS-CoV-2 PCR-positive tests and COVID-19-related hospital admissions. Effectiveness calculations were based on hazard ratios from adjusted Cox models. This study was registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT04848584.
Between Dec 14, 2020, and Aug 8, 2021, of 4 920 549 individuals assessed for eligibility, we included 3 436 957 (median age 45 years [IQR 29–61]; 1 799 395 [52·4%] female and 1 637 394 [47·6%] male). For fully vaccinated individuals, effectiveness against SARS-CoV-2 infections was 73% (95% CI 72–74) and against COVID-19-related hospital admissions was 90% (89–92).
Effectiveness against infections declined from 88% (95% CI 86–89) during the first month after full vaccination to 47% (43–51) after 5 months.
Among sequenced infections, vaccine effectiveness against infections of the delta variant was high during the first month after full vaccination (93% [95% CI 85–97]) but declined to 53% [39–65] after 4 months. Effectiveness against other (non-delta) variants the first month after full vaccination was also high at 97% (95% CI 95–99), but waned to 67% (45–80) at 4–5 months.
Vaccine effectiveness against hospital admissions for infections with the delta variant for all ages was high overall (93% [95% CI 84–96]) up to 6 months.
Our results provide support for high effectiveness of BNT162b2 against hospital admissions up until around 6 months after being fully vaccinated, even in the face of widespread dissemination of the delta variant. Reduction in vaccine effectiveness against SARS-CoV-2 infections over time is probably primarily due to waning immunity with time rather than the delta variant escaping vaccine protection.

Waning Vaccine Efficacy with Delta Variant Pfizer at 42% Efficacy
58) Puranik, Arjun, et al. “Comparison of two highly-effective mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 during periods of Alpha and Delta variant prevalence.” medRxiv (2021).
We defined cohorts of vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals from Minnesota (n = 25,589 each) matched on age, sex, race, history of prior SARS-CoV-2 PCR testing, and date of full vaccination. Both vaccines were highly effective during this study period against SARS-CoV-2 infection (mRNA-1273: 86%, 95%CI: 81–90.6%; BNT162b2: 76%, 95%CI: 69–81%) and COVID-19 associated hospitalization (mRNA-1273: 91.6%, 95% CI: 81–97%; BNT162b2: 85%, 95% CI: 73–93%).
In July, vaccine effectiveness against hospitalization has remained high (mRNA-1273: 81%, 95% CI: 33–96.3%; BNT162b2: 75%, 95% CI: 24–93.9%), but effectiveness against infection was lower for both vaccines (mRNA-1273: 76%, 95% CI: 58–87%; BNT162b2: 42%, 95% CI: 13–62%), with a more pronounced reduction for BNT162b2.
Notably, the Delta variant prevalence in Minnesota increased from 0.7% in May to over 70% in July whereas the Alpha variant prevalence decreased from 85% to 13% over the same time period. Comparing rates of infection between matched individuals fully vaccinated with mRNA-1273 versus BNT162b2 across Mayo Clinic Health System sites in multiple states (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Arizona, Florida, and Iowa), mRNA-1273 conferred a two-fold risk reduction against breakthrough infection compared to BNT162b2 (IRR = 0.50, 95% CI: 0.39–0.64). In Florida, which is currently experiencing its largest COVID-19 surge to date, the risk of infection in July after full vaccination with mRNA-1273 was about 60% lower than after full vaccination with BNT162b2 (IRR: 0.39, 95% CI: 0.24–0.62)
ADE seen in USA Medicare DATA Humetrix/Salus Delta Variant
59): DoD Data Analysis Reveals Accelerated ADE In Vaccinated
By Michelle Edwards – October 5, 2021 UncoverDC , link to the Humetrix/Salus slide set here: Effectiveness of mRNA COVID19 vaccines against Delta variant 5.6M Medicare Humetrix salus__2021_09_28-21
Alarmingly, the data backs up what experts have predicted for months—that mass vaccination against COVID-19 will result in the mutation and strengthening of SARS-CoV-1, a phenomenon called Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE), thus driving up the rate of infection and spread of the virus…Project Salus data suggests that the majority of COVID-19 infections in study cohorts occur among those fully vaccinated, with outcomes worsening over time. Additionally, based on this analysis, individuals who have contracted and recovered from COVID-19 boast natural immunity, which offers the strongest protection against breakthrough infection. end quote

Abstract: We found no significant difference in cycle threshold values between vaccinated and unvaccinated, asymptomatic and symptomatic groups infected with SARS-CoV-2 Delta. Given the substantial proportion of asymptomatic vaccine breakthrough cases with high viral levels, interventions, including masking and testing, should be considered for all in settings with elevated COVID-19 transmission.

No, we’re not getting vaccines. Of course not. We all got the Covid, so why would you get a vaccine? By staying open, the Amish here have one tangible 2020 accomplishment few others can claim.
Lapp: We have this joke: when everybody else started walking, we started running. We made more money in the last year than we ever did. It was our best year ever.
Did the Amish really find a magic formula? They say yes. And they don’t care who doubts it.
Lapp: Yeah, all the Amish know we got herd immunity. Of course we got herd immunity! The whole church gets coronavirus. We know we got coronavirus. We think we’re smarter than everybody.

No Discernible Relationship Between VACCINE STATUS AND Covid Cases
67) Study Published On NIH Website Finds ‘No Discernable Relationship’ Between Vaccine Status And COVID Cases, Says Infection Rate May Be Higher Among Fully Vaccinated Gabriel Keane October 18, 2021
“In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people.”
68) Subramanian, S. V., and Akhil Kumar. “Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States.” European journal of epidemiology (2021): 1-4.
At the country-level, there appears to be no discernable relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days (Fig. 1). In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people. Notably, Israel with over 60% of their population fully vaccinated had the highest COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the last 7 days.
