Virus surge hits New England despite high
vaccination rates

Original Article

Posted By: NorthernDog, 10/3/2021 9:35:27 AM

Despite having the highest vaccination rates in the country, there are constant reminders for most New England states of just how vicious the delta variant of COVID-19 is. Hospitals across the region are seeing full intensive care units and staff shortages are starting to affect care. Public officials are pleading with the unvaccinated to get the shots. Health care workers are coping with pent-up demand for other kinds of care that had been delayed by the pandemic. “I think it’s clearly frustrating for all of us,” said Michael Pieciak, the commissioner of the Vermont Department of Financial Regulation who monitor


Now they say 90% vaccination rates are needed.

The booster is the virus. That's why the higher the vaccination rate, the more people who get covid.

Why don't you New englanders look at Desantis in Florida?? Set up Antibody centers throughout the region. Or look at India - pass out Ivermectin (No more Covid)!! It's that simple, but on no we have a working vaccine that is killing people, permanently damaging them, and doesn't even work!! Alll the while Big Pharma, and ,members of congress are making millions and billions on the vaccination scam!

The "experts"(?) are grasping at straws. They have no clue how to combat the Covid. The shots work for a short latency. But you can still get the Covid. Ask the NIH who commissioned the Chicoms for the gain of function research. They should know how to combat it, they paid for it. But no, the Covid is the gift that keeps on giving for the Deep State. Covid is control. Covid is control.

I live in Assachusetts. This is s blatant lie. The state gets big big BIG $$$$ for every "covid" death. Hence EVERY death from cancer, to heart attack, to stroke, to suicide - yes, you read that correctly, is now labeled a "covid" death. Once the revolution is complete a lot of mucky mucks in Assachusetts need to be thoroughly investigated. Follow the money and take it out of their hides.

It is not a vaccine. It is an inoculation much like the annual flu shot. Every year the flu shot is reworked hoping to protect the populace against the winter flu season. It works up to a point. While some never get the flu others who have taken the shot may have an easier go if they contract it. And many die no matter the shot or not. Sound familiar? The inoculation that is currently being used is for the 2019 covid virus. It is nearing the end of 2021 and the virus has mutated many times, it has changed from the original covid 19 virus. Most of the people who took the inoculation are probably protected from the original virus. Not so much the variants. The variants have changed, they are different. This is why people are getting so called "break through" illnesses. They are being infected with a new covid virus. And like the flu shot they hopefully will have an easier time if they are infected with a variant. A booster shot is to shore up your immune system to help you fight against a new variant illness. It is not going to immunize you against covid. The covid porn needs to stop, the fear mongering is evil and people who have had covid need to be recognized as not needing a shot. I see no problem with taking a booster to help fight a new variant virus if you want to. Wear extra protection if you want or don't. The choice is yours. Covid is not going away and we had better learn how to live with it without attacking each other.

Assachusetts also gets BIG $$$ for every test and more for every positive test. Colleges are requiring weekly tests for ALL students, faculty and staff. Even though they are vaccinated. Think about how much that adds up to. The tax payers nation wide are pouring money into this state to line the pockets of beaurocrats, the medical establishment, big pharma and vlsome very crooked doctors. It's a disgrace.

What happened to the medications that are effective against the virus. All these blue states talk about is the vaccine. You never hear about the therapeutics used in other states. In Florida their hospital rates dropped over 50% because of the use of medications. And, vaccinated people are getting sick because the vaccine they received was developed to stop covid-19 and not all of these variants that are mutating out of the original virus. Again, we're all idiots. The same people who created the staff shortages are creating the panic. Do you get it yet. This is all about fear and control.

These “health officials” are practicing job security, and in doing so are sending out confusing stories about vaccines and the Wuhan flu. In doing so, people are scared of both. Who can blame someone for hesitating about getting a shot. These bureaucrats and the media should just shut up and let things run their course. We should be talking about Afghanistan and the Porkulus bills in Congress instead.

Maybe this isn't such a bad thing. Vaxxed people get the disease, they aren't just real sick, they don't clog the hospitals, they live and develop natural immunity. After two immunizations, I got covid. It was like a cold for about a week. The most bothersome symptom was that I lost my sense of smell and taste for about 10 days.

So all across the nation Covid continues to 'surge'. Now, even in the most vaccinated area of the country, its surging. And the Mantra continues to blame the 'unvaccinated' instead of realizing the vaccine isn't that great. Now most people can see that with their own eyes but the goobernment wants them to believe the goobernment 'science'.

The mRNA shots are many things, but an inoculation is not one of them. We’ve had over 18 months to actually study these “vaccines,” and an increasing number of honest, diligent, independent researchers have come to the conclusion that the “vaccine” IS the Delta variant. Believe me, I wish this were not true, for any of us.

For the moment, let's lay aside of the obvious health risks associated with the 'vaccination'. The biggest stinker is that it is not very effective. Even if it was perfectly safe, it's a crummy "vaccination". A normal vaccine consists of de-activated whole viruses which cannot reproduce. This gives your immune system a look at the whole virus, and your immune system builds many kinds of antibodies to the WHOLE virus, all parts, all aspects. Many different kinds of antibodies, each kind reacting to a unique spot on the virus. This mRNA shot has your body make spike proteins. Spike proteins are just one feature of the exterior of the virus. So, your immune system has NO exposure to any other aspect of the virus. Any variation in that spike protein on the virus, and a vaccinated person's immune system cannot recognize the mutant virus at all. This "vaccine" gives very narrow protection, easily mutated around. With a real vaccine, a small mutation might mean that 1 or 5 of perhaps 50 different kinds of antibodies will not detect the virus, but all the remaining antibodies will still see their unchanged part of the virus. This is why natural immunity is superior to The Shot. And a normal vaccination is very close in effectiveness to natural immunity. So far, there are NO actual whole virus vaccinations for this virus, although India is reported to be working on one with a deactivated virus.

So, we have a "vaccine" which doesn't prevent you from getting the disease, and doesn't prevent you from passing on the disease. And I should take it exactly "WHY?" And that is ignoring the large numbers of deaths right after having this Shot.

Biden tells GOP to 'get out of the way'

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden on Monday urged Republican senators to “get out of the way” and let Democrats suspend the nation’s debt limit, hoping to keep the U.S. government from bumping dangerously close to a credit default as Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell refuses to lend his party’s help. Biden’s criticism came with Congress facing an Oct 18 deadline to allow for more borrowing to keep the government operating after having accrued a total public debt of $28.4 trillion. The House has passed a measure to suspend the debt limit, but McConnell is forcing Senate Democrats into a cumbersome

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — New Zealand's government acknowledged Monday what most other countries did long ago: It can no longer completely get rid of the coronavirus. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced a cautious plan to ease lockdown restrictions in Auckland, despite an outbreak there that continues to simmer. Since early in the pandemic, New Zealand had pursued an unusual zero-tolerance approach to the virus through strict lockdowns and aggressive contact tracing. Until recently, that elimination strategy had worked remarkably well for the country of 5 million, which has reported just 27 virus deaths. While other nations faced rising death tolls and

It's too soon to say whether the pandemic has eased enough for families to gather for Christmas this year, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday. Fauci, making the Sunday talk show rounds, said on CBS News' "Face the Nation" that Americans first need to focus on lowering the number of new infections and hospitalizations. The best way to do that: Vaccination and booster shots, he said. "We've just got to concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we're going to do at a particular time," Fauci said.
