According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
data, COVID-19 "cases" have trended downward since
peaking during the first and second week of January
2021. At first glance, this decline appears to be
occurring in tandem with the rollout of COVID shots.
However, "cases" were on the decline before a meaningful
number of people had been vaccinated
COVID-19 "cases" peaked January 8, 2021, when more than
300,000 new positive test results were recorded on a
daily basis. By February 21, that had declined to a
daily new case count of 55,000
COVID-19 gene modification injections were granted
emergency use authorization at the end of December 2020,
and by February 21, only 5.9% of American adults had
been fully injected with two doses. Despite such a low
injection rate, new "cases" had declined by 82%

"Following patterns from previous pandemics, the precipitous
decline in new cases of Covid-19 started well before a meaningful
number of people had been vaccinated," Robert M. Kaplan, Professor
Emeritus at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, writes.
"Nearly 50 years ago, medical sociologists
John and Sonja McKinlay
examined 5 death rates from 10 serious diseases:
scarlet fever, influenza, pneumonia, diphtheria, whooping cough,
measles, smallpox, typhoid, and polio.
In each case, the new therapy
or vaccine credited with overcoming it was introduced well after the
disease was in decline.
More recently, historian Thomas McKeown
noted 6 that deaths from bronchitis, pneumonia, and
influenza had begun rapidly falling 35 years before the
introduction of new medicines that were credited with their
analyses are relevant to the current pandemic."
'Case' Decline Preceded Widespread Implementation of Jab
As noted by Kaplan, COVID-19 "cases" peaked in early January 2021.
January 8, more than 300,000 new positive test results were recorded
on a daily basis. By February 21, that had declined to a daily new
case count of 55,000.
COVID-19 gene modification injections were
granted emergency use authorization at the end of December 2020, but

Despite such a low vaccination rate, new
"cases" had declined by

nothing to do with the decline in positive test results.
To be clear, reported cases mean positive test results, and we now
know the vast majority of positive
PCR tests have been, and still
are, false positives.
They're not sick.
They simply had a false
Right now, we're also faced with yet another situation
that complicates attempts at data analysis, and Kaplan
understandably did not address any of these confounding factors.
But just so you're aware, if you have been fully "vaccinated," then
the CDC recommends running the PCR test at a cycle threshold (CT) of
28 or lower, which dramatically lowers your chance of a false
positive result, but if you are unvaccinated, the PCR test is
recommended to be run at a CT of 40 or higher, virtually
guaranteeing a false positive...
This is just one way by which the CDC is manipulating data to make
the COVID shots appear more effective than they are. This also
allows them to falsely claim that the vast majority of new cases are
among the unvaccinated.
Naturally, if unvaccinated are tested in such a way as to maximize
false positives, then they're going to make up the bulk of the
In reality, though, the vast majority of them
Meanwhile, those who have received the jabs only count as a COVID
case if they're hospitalized and/or die with a positive test result.
These widely differing testing strategies skew the data and allow
for false interpretations to be made.
Immunity Explains Decline in Cases
As noted by Robert M. Kaplan, the most reasonable explanation
for declining rates of SARS-CoV-2 appears to be natural immunity
from previous infections, which vary considerably from state to
He goes on
to cite a study 8 by the National Institutes of Health, which
suggests SARS-CoV-2 prevalence was 4.8 times higher than previously
thought, thanks to undiagnosed infection.
In other words, they claim that for every reported positive test
result, there were likely nearly five additional people who had the
infection but didn't get a diagnosis.
To analyze this data further,
Kaplan calculated the natural immunity rate by dividing the new
estimated number of people naturally infected by the population of
any given state.
He writes: 9
"By mid-February 2021, an estimated 150 million people in the U.S.
(30 million times five) may have had been infected with SARS-CoV-2.
By April, I estimated the natural immunity rate to be above 55% in
Arizona, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode
Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Wisconsin.
At the other end of the continuum, I estimated the natural immunity
rate to be below 35% in the District of,
Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, Oregon, Puerto Rico,
Vermont, Virginia, and Washington...
By the end of 2020, new infections were already rapidly declining in
nearly all of the 10 states where the majority may have had natural
immunity, well before more than a minuscule percentage of Americans
were fully vaccinated.
In 80% of these states, the day when new
cases were at their peak occurred before vaccines were available.
In contrast, the 10 states with lower rates of previous
infections were much more likely to experience new upticks in
Covid-19 cases in March and April...
By the end of May,
states with fewer new infections had significantly lower
vaccination rates than states with more new infections."
Cannot Eliminate COVID-19
So, SARS-CoV-2 cases were actually higher in states where natural
immunity was low but vaccination rates were high.
states where natural immunity due to undiagnosed exposure was high,
but vaccination rates were low, the daily new caseload was also
This makes sense if natural immunity is highly effective (which,
historically it has always been and there's no reason to suspect
SARS-CoV-2 is any different in that regard).
It also makes sense if
the COVID shots aren't really offering any significant protection
against infection, which we also know is the case.

The idea behind these gene modification injections is that
if/when you do get infected, you'll hopefully experience milder
symptoms, even though you're still infectious and can spread the
virus to others.
Kaplan ends his analysis by saying that COVID shots are a safer way
to achieve herd immunity, and that they are,

immunity, 13 yet that's what the CDC recommends. 14
Why Push COVID
Jab on Those with Natural Immunity?
In January 2021, Dr. Hooman Noorchashm, a cardiac surgeon and
patient advocate, sent a public letter 15 to the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration commissioner detailing the risks of vaccinating
individuals who have previously been infected with SARS-CoV-2, or
who have an active SARS-CoV-2 infection.
He urged the FDA to require prescreening for SARS-CoV-2 viral
proteins to reduce the risk of injuries and deaths following
vaccination, as the vaccine may trigger an adverse immune response
in those who have already been infected with the virus.
2021, Fox TV host Tucker Carlson interviewed him about these risks.
In that interview, Noorchashm
"I think it's a dramatic error on part of public health officials to
try to put this vaccine into a one-size-fits-all paradigm...
We're going to take
this problem we have with the COVID-19 pandemic, where a
half-percent of the population is susceptible to dying, and
compound it by causing totally avoidable harm by vaccinating
people who are already infected...
The signal is deafening, the people who are having complications or
adverse events are the people who have recently or are currently or
previously infected [with COVID].
I don't think we can
In an email to The Defender, Noorchashm
fleshed out his concerns, saying: 17
persist in the tissues of the naturally infected for months.
When the vaccine is
used too early after a natural infection, or worse during an
active infection, the vaccine force activates a powerful immune
response that attacks the tissues where the natural viral
antigens are persisting.
This, I suggest, is
the cause of the high level of adverse events and, likely
deaths, we are seeing in the recently infected following
Despite being widely ignored, Noorchashm continues to push for the
implementation of prevaccine screening using PCR or rapid antigen
testing to determine whether the individual has an active infection,
and an IgG antibody test to determine past infection.
If either test is positive, he recommends delaying vaccination for a
minimum of three to six months to allow your IgG levels to wane.
that point, he recommends testing your blood IgG level and use that
as a guide to decide the timing of your vaccination.
Natural Immunity Have Higher Risk of Side Effects
Mere weeks after Noorchashm's letter to the FDA, an international
survey 18 confirmed his concerns.
After surveying 2,002 people who
had received a first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, they found that those
who had previously had COVID-19 experienced "significantly increased
incidence and severity" of side effects, compared to those who did
not have natural immunity.
The mRNA COVID-19 vaccines were linked to a higher incidence of side
effects compared to the viral vector-based COVID-19 vaccines, but
tended to be milder, local reactions.
Systemic reactions, such as
anaphylaxis, flu-like illness and breathlessness, were more likely
to occur with the viral vector COVID-19 vaccines.
Like Noorchashm before them, the researchers called on health
officials to reevaluate their vaccination recommendations for people
who've had COVID-19: 19
"People with prior COVID-19 exposure were largely excluded from the
vaccine trials and, as a result, the safety and reactogenicity of
the vaccines in this population have not been previously fully
For the first time, this study demonstrates a significant
association between prior COVID19 infection and a significantly
higher incidence and severity of self-reported side effects after
vaccination for COVID-19.
Consistently, compared to the first dose of the vaccine, we found an
increased incidence and severity of self-reported side effects after
the second dose, when recipients had been previously exposed to
In view of the rapidly accumulating data
demonstrating that COVID-19 survivors generally have adequate
natural immunity for at least 6 months, it may be appropriate to
re-evaluate the recommendation for immediate vaccination of this
Misrepresents Data to Push Jab on Those with Immunity
the CDC has refused to change its stance on the matter.
Instead, officials at the agency seem to have doubled down and
actually go out of their way to misrepresent data in an effort to
harass those with natural immunity to inappropriately take the jab,
which is clearly clinically unnecessary.
In a report issued by the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization
Practices (ACIP) December 18, 2020, the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19
vaccine was said to have "consistent high efficacy" of 92% or more
among people with evidence of previous SARS-CoV-2 infection. 20
After looking at the Pfizer trial data, Rep. Thomas Massie - a
Republican Congressman for Kentucky and an award-winning scientist
in his own right - discovered that's completely wrong.
In a January
30, 2021, Full Measure report, investigative journalist Sharyl
Attkisson described how Massie tried, in vain, to get the CDC to
correct its error.
According to Massie:
"There is no efficacy demonstrated in the Pfizer trial among
participants with evidence of previous SARS-CoV-2 infections and
actually there's no proof in the Moderna trial either...
It [the CDC report] says the exact opposite of what the data says.
They're giving people the impression that this vaccine will save
your life, or save you from suffering, even if you've already had
the virus and recovered, which has not been demonstrated in either
the Pfizer or the Moderna trial."
After multiple phone calls, CDC deputy director Dr.
finally acknowledged the error and told Massie it would be fixed.
"As you note
correctly, there is not sufficient analysis to show that in the
subset of only the people with prior infection, there's
So, you're correct
that that sentence is wrong and that we need to make a
correction of it," Schuchat said in the recorded
January 29, 2021, the CDC issued its supposed correction, but rather
than fix the error, they simply rephrased the mistake in a different
This was the "correction" they issued:
efficacy (≥92%) was observed across age, sex, race, and
ethnicity categories and among persons with underlying medical
similarly high in a secondary analysis including participants
both with or without evidence of previous SARS-CoV-2 infection."
As you can see, the "correction",
still misleadingly suggests that
vaccination is 'effective' for those previously infected, even though
the data showed no such thing.
Children of ever-younger ages are
also being pushed to get the COVID jab, even though they have the
absolute lowest risk of dying from COVID-19 of any group.
Data 23 from the first 12 months of the pandemic in the U.K. show
just 25 people under the age of 18 died from or with COVID-19. 24
all, 251 children under 18 were admitted to intensive care between
March 2020 and February 2021.
The absolute risk of death from
COVID-19 in children is 2 in 1 million.
Provides Far Less Protection Than Natural Immunity
While some claim vaccine-induced immunity offers greater protection
against SARS-CoV-2 infection than natural immunity, historical and
current real-world data simply fail to support this non-common sense
As recently reported by Attkisson 25,26 and David Rosenberg 7 Israeli
National News, 27 recent Israeli data show those who have received
the COVID jab are 6.72 times more likely to get infected than people
who have recovered from natural infection.
Among the 7,700 new COVID cases diagnosed so far during the current
wave of infections that began in May 2021, 39% were vaccinated
(about 3,000 cases), 1% (72 patients) had recovered from a previous
SARS-CoV-2 infection and 60% were neither vaccinated nor previously
Israeli National News
"With a total of 835,792 Israelis known to have recovered from the
virus, the 72 instances of reinfection amount to 0.0086% of people
who were already infected with COVID.
By contrast, Israelis
who were vaccinated were 6.72 times more likely to get infected
after the shot than after natural infection, with over 3,000 of
the 5,193,499, or 0.0578%, of Israelis who were vaccinated
getting infected in the latest wave."
Infections Are on the Rise
Other Israeli data also suggest the limited protection offered by
the COVID shot is rapidly eroding.
August 1, 2021, director of
Israel's Public Health Services, Dr. Sharon Alroy-Preis, announced
half of all COVID-19 infections were among the fully vaccinated.
Signs of more serious disease among fully vaccinated are also
emerging, she said, particularly in those over the age of 60.
Even worse, August 5, Dr. Kobi Haviv, director of the Herzog
Hospital in Jerusalem, appeared on Channel 13 News, reporting that
95% of severely ill COVID-19 patients are fully vaccinated, and that
they make up 85% to 90% of COVID-related hospitalizations overall.
Other areas where a clear majority of residents have been vaccinated
are also seeing spikes in breakthrough cases.
In Gibraltar, which
has a 99% COVID jab compliance rate, COVID cases have risen by
2,500% since June 1, 2021. 31
Shatters 'Pandemic of Unvaccinated' Narrative
An investigation by the CDC 32,33 also dispels the narrative that
we're in a "pandemic of the unvaccinated."
An outbreak in Barnstable
County, Massachusetts, resulted in 469 new COVID cases among
residents who had traveled into town between July 3 and July 17,
Of these cases, 74% were fully vaccinated, as were 80% of those
Most, but not all, had the Delta variant
of the virus...
The CDC also found that fully vaccinated individuals
who contract the infection had as high a viral load in their nasal
passages as unvaccinated individuals who got infected. 34
This means the
vaccinated are just as infectious as the unvaccinated...
According to Attkisson:
"CDC's newest findings on so-called
'breakthrough' infections in
vaccinated people are mirrored by other data releases.
health officials recently announced 36 more than 160
fully-vaccinated people have died of Covid-19, and at least 644
been hospitalized; 10 deaths and 51 hospitalizations counted in
the prior week...
In July, New Jersey reported 49 fully vaccinated residents had died
of Covid; 27 in Louisiana; 80 in Massachusetts...
Nationally, as of
July 12, CDC said it was aware of more than 4,400 people who got
Covid-19 after being fully vaccinated and had to be hospitalized;
and 1,063 fully vaccinated people who died of Covid."
It is important to note,
this data is over 1 month old now and it is
likely that many thousands of fully "vaccinated" have now died from
Immunity Appears Robust and Long-Lasting
An argument we're starting to hear more of now is that even though
natural immunity after recovery from infection appears to be quite
good, "we don't know how long it'll last."
This is rather
disingenuous, seeing how natural immunity is typically lifelong, and
studies have shown
natural immunity against SARS-CoV-2 is at bare
minimum longer lasting than vaccine-induced immunity.
Here's a sampling of scholarly publications that have investigated
natural immunity as it pertains to SARS-CoV-2 infection.
There are several more in
addition to these: 37

38 found that,
antibodies are excellent markers of previous and recent infection,
that differential isotype measurements can help distinguish between
recent and older infections, and that IgG responses persist over the
first few months after infection and are highly correlated
with neutralizing antibodies."
The BMJ January 2021
39 concluded that,
"Of 11, 000 health care
workers who had proved evidence of infection during the first wave
of the pandemic in the U.K. between March and April 2020, none had
symptomatic reinfection in the second wave of the virus between
October and November 2020."
Science February 2021
40 reported that,
"Substantial immune memory is
generated after COVID-19, involving all four major types of immune
memory [antibodies, memory B cells, memory CD8+ T cells, and memory
CD4+ T cells].
About 95% of subjects retained immune memory at ~6
months after infection. Circulating antibody titers were not
predictive of T cell memory.
Thus, simple serological tests for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies do not
reflect the richness and durability of immune memory to SARS-CoV-2."
A 2,800-person study found no symptomatic reinfections over a
~118-day window, and a 1,246-person study observed no symptomatic
reinfections over 6 months.

immunity confers much wider protection as your body recognizes all
five proteins of the virus and not just one. With the COVID shot,
your body only recognizes one of these proteins, the spike protein.
A June 2021 Nature article
48 points out that,
"Wang et al. show that,
between 6 and 12 months after infection, the concentration of
neutralizing antibodies remains unchanged.
That the acute immune
reaction extends even beyond six months is suggested by the authors'
analysis of SARS-CoV-2-specific memory B cells in the blood of the
convalescent individuals over the course of the year.
These memory B cells continuously enhance the reactivity of their
SARS-CoV-2-specific antibodies through a process known as somatic
The good news is that
the evidence thus far predicts that infection with SARS-CoV-2
induces long-term immunity in most individuals."
Another June Nature paper concluded that,
"In the absence of
vaccination antibody reactivity [to the receptor binding domain (RBD)
of SARS-CoV-2], neutralizing activity and the number of RBD-specific
memory B cells remain relatively stable from 6 to 12 months."
According to the authors, the data suggest,
convalescent individuals will be very long lasting."
Natural Immunity Superior?
The reason natural immunity is superior to vaccine-induced immunity
is because viruses contain five different proteins.
The COVID shot
induces antibodies against just one of those proteins, the spike
protein, and no T cell immunity.
When you're infected with the whole
virus, you develop antibodies against all parts of the virus, plus
memory T cells.
This also means natural immunity offers better protection against
variants, as it recognizes several parts of the virus.
If there are
significant alternations to the spike protein, as with the Delta
variant, vaccine-induced immunity can be evaded.
Not so with natural
immunity, as the other proteins are still recognized and attacked.
Not only that but the COVID jabs actually actively promote the
production of variants for which they provide virtually no
protection at all, while those with natural immunity do not cause
variants and are nearly universally protected against them.
If we are to depend on vaccine-induced immunity, as public health
officials are urging us to do, we'll end up on a never-ending
