COVID, Vaccines, and Fetal Cells – Do You Know the Ingredients of Your Vaccines?

Knowledge Check!By now, it should not surprise anyone that many common vaccines contain fetal cells, including those for COVID-19.  In a press release, the North Dakota Department of Health makes the following claim, “… some of the COVID-19 vaccines used cells originally isolated from fetal tissue (often referred to as fetal cells), some of which were originally derived from an aborted fetus. The use of fetal cell lines is a very sensitive and important topic within some faith communities and among individuals with concerns about the ethics of using materials derived in this way.”  It has been an open secret that fetal cells have been used to make or test vaccines for a long time now, and the cells were harvested in the 1960s.

Dr. McKenna (2018) writes on using aborted fetal tissues in vaccine and medical research and makes a strong case between the use of aborted fetal tissue in a research laboratory and the reimbursement practices of Planned Parenthood.  Legal or illegal, moral or immoral, ethical or unethical, the actions of Planned Parenthood in selling aborted fetal tissues are personally repugnant, but I do not understand the legal jargon sufficiently to offer an informed opinion.  I find the selling of aborted fetal tissues ghoulish, immoral, and disgusting.  However, the science of using fetal tissues in producing and testing vaccines is understandable, and I find this practice heinous and dangerous.Apathy

Consider with me the science and draw your own conclusions, for this is the power of science.  We can both observe what is occurring and draw independent conclusions based upon the data presented.  We can disagree, and the science can be debated, for one thing is universal, “Science is NEVER settled!”

Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca vaccines were developed with fetal cells. The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are “supposedly” not derived from fetal cells, but some reports have these companies testing the vaccine on fetal cells.  Frankly, with all the money involved, I do not trust any pharmaceutical company to report the truth.  They cannot be held liable for lying or endangering the health and welfare of those receiving their products.  Again, draw your own conclusions.  I am not here to tell you how to think; just hear me out first.The Duty of Americans

Let’s separate some fact and fiction from the marketing and hype.  Here is a website typical of most “informational,” “quasi-science,” filtered data websites on vaccines and fetal cells.  The website is more useful for what is not related than what is related, and that is the first problem.  In reporting that fetal cells are being used, what are your first three most important questions?

My first three questions are:

  1. Why are fetal cells used and not other types of cells?
  2. Why use cells from such old specimens to grow the vaccines?
  3. What about the recipient and any potential for DNA/RNA cross-over from human-to-human contamination?

If you want an excellent book on this topic, please see Meredith Wadman’s “The Vaccine Race: Science, Politics, and the Human Costs of Defeating Disease.”  I am not writing to sell a book, but I do recommend this book as a means of capturing the information I cannot cover in a simple blog post.  There is history, science, government politics, intrigue, and a whole lot of people who are needed to flush out even a tenth of this topic and the book does a good job of explaining these topics.  Imperative to note, you do not need to be a chemist, physicist, or a multi-degreed scientist or medical doctor to read the book.  If you have legitimate questions about vaccines, from the annual flu vaccine to COVID, I recommend having this book as a reference.Problems

Are there alternatives to fetal tissue available and of sufficiently low enough cost to change from 60-year old fetal tissues; yes.  However, as the book The Vaccine Race makes clear, the impetus to change is missing.  Herein lay the problem, Big Pharma is not going to change.  Unfortunately, there are no regulatory agencies with enough power to force change on a $100 Million industry; the sale of aborted fetal tissue is that big and more.  Worse, by manipulating the public through feel-good marketing websites and public disclosures that do not answer questions, Big Pharma can avoid accountability.

Using the CDC website, let’s explore some other common ingredients in today’s vaccines, and you can choose whether you want these chemicals in your body.

    • Formaldehyde – Used to kill viruses and toxins that are introduced in the vaccine manufacturing process.  Where do we find formaldehyde; the preservation of dead bodies in a mortuary.
    • Sugar and Gelatin – Yup, you read that right, you are getting a shot of Jell-O.
    • Aluminum Salts – Check out the research on what Aluminum Salts do to the neurological system.  Nothing good is a vast understatement!
    • Thimerosal – Also known as “Ethylmercury” or a form of alcohol mercury, but if you believe the CDC and Big Pharma, this type of mercury is in a smaller dose and is not as easily stacked up in the body, and is less likely to cause mercury poisoning.  Even the CDC warns that Thimerosal is only used in Flu vaccines; you know, those vaccines you’re supposed to not worry about and get every year.
    • Egg Proteins and Neomycin – Egg proteins are generally only found in Influenza (flu) vaccines and Yellow Fever vaccines.  Neomycin is an antibiotic used to prevent bacterial contamination from the manufacturing process.

VaccineAs a side note, does the process of creating and manufacturing a vaccine concern you if the manufacturers need formaldehyde and neomycin due to problems prevalent in the manufacturing process?  Now, consider two significant issues in America, the explosion of medicine-resistant bacteria and viral infections in hospitals and the explosion of obesity.  With Jell-O in the annual flu vaccines and the neomycin, aren’t the vaccines part of the growing problem of medicine-resistant bacteria and viruses and the obesity problems?

Ingredients specific to the COVID vaccines, we find a list of chemicals, metals, sugars, and alcohols that frankly astounds and mystifies.  Here is the website with the ingredients broken down that the pharmaceutical companies are willing to advertise as being inside their vaccine.

    • Sucrose is in two of the vaccines.
    • A couple of chemicals (polyethylene glycol/ethanol) I use to wash engines.
    • Salts and cholesterol are in the vaccines.

… and the list goes on and on!  Some of these ingredients are in a Twinkie.  Does this mean that I can safely eat Twinkies, Zingers, and other processed foods and not gain weight or have adverse health problems?  Why should people not be asking more questions about chemical reactions with other medications inside the body?  Why shouldn’t we be asking more questions about long-term side effects and multi-chemical toxicity?

Bobblehead DollI am not anti-science, anti-vaccine, anti-anything.  I am pro-choice and pro-question.  I want clarity, honesty, and transparency.  I desire the ability to have all the information so as to make informed decisions, whether those decisions be about health, law, science, politics, etc.  I do not feel this is too much to ask.  Do you?

Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot? – The COVID Vaccine Issue

Dont Tread On MeLet me emphasize; I am not a medical professional!  I am not providing medical advice to or not to obtain the COVID Vaccine.  I am a concerned American willing to put forward his concerns.  I am concerned about the liberties and freedoms being stolen through social fear, spun by the media hype, and pursued relentlessly by government and big Pharmaceutical companies.  Compounded by non-government organizations, businesses, and other groups, whose behavior remains inconsistent with any other viral disease in history.  Please allow me to emphasize a point that is stated in many of the peer-reviewed articles on vaccines, “Safety of these vaccines, when given in combination with other vaccines, is not proven” (section 2.1) [emphasis mine].

NO FearThis particular warning is directly copied from a published paper (2014) on HPV vaccinations in India.  Similar wording has been witnessed on every other vaccine-related research paper I have personally reviewed.  As a variable, multi-vaccines can cause additional problems that makes targeting a single vaccine provided simultaneously tricky.  This is why most vaccines in the United States are now given individually with time between injections to study the patient’s response to the vaccine.

At the start of June, the question was posed, “Was COVID-19 a dry run?”  I am still not a conspiracy theorist!  However, I have more concerns.  In conducting research last week, I found reputable sources declaring that COVID-19 was never about the viral disease itself but creating enough social turmoil to force vaccinations.  A scary and slippery slope indeed.

QuestionMany of my sources have been scrubbed from the Internet on three different search engines between Friday night and Monday morning.  Again, not a conspiracy theorist but a concerned American looking for answers.  During his 17 May 2021 address, the President informed me that since the vaccine is free (monetarily), I have no excuses left not to get the vaccine.  Except, there are still no long-term studies about this vaccine, and I have questions about the interactions between the vaccine and the prescription drugs I already take.  Worse, as a person who already suffers shortness of breath, and since the vaccine can cause shortness of breath, will the vaccine make the current problems with breathing worse?

To date, no provider or vaccine manufacturer has provided detailed data indicating one way or another on these health questions.  I want this clear; I am NOT anti-vaccine, but I need to know.  Multi-drug intoxication leads to death!  Legal drugs, illicit drugs, everyday over-the-counter drugs, and vitamins must be precisely reviewed to protect a patient’s existing health.  Except where the COVID Vaccine is concerned, none of this matters, and I want to know why.  As of 14 June 2021, The New York Times is reporting the CDC is investigating rare heart problems after COVID Vaccinations in more than 800 people.  This fact alone should cease the forced vaccinations for COVID by the FDA.  Why hasn’t the FDA acted already?

The “Reader’s Digest” version of vaccine approval.

Angry Wet ChickenI am not a legal expert or a medical professional; thus, please feel free to correct me if I get some of the details wrong here.  From 1996 to 2006, I watched the human papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine “Gardasil®” go through the FDA approval process.  I remain especially concerned about this vaccine due to the connections between the HPV human trials in India and the short- and long-term effects the Indian women have suffered since they participated in these trials.  Articles recording the HPV long-term effects are still published in peer-reviewed journals of medicine.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has statutory approval authority for all sorts of functions where foods and drugs are consumed in the United States.  Similar agencies exist in other representative governments, and the processes can be just as taxing to obtain information from.  The FDA prepared a “Vaccine Development – 101” marketing information for public release.  Which reveals nothing, hides a lot, and answers very few questions, but I included the link for your personal research.Plato 2

The FDA reports there are seven steps from the initial research and development of a vaccine in a laboratory to final approval and continuous monitoring through VAERS.  Vaccine adverse event reporting system (VAERS) is the repository for data on vaccines approved by the FDA.  It is publicly accessible, and you can fact-check how many people have suffered from the COVID vaccine or any other vaccine.  You need to understand the statistical data, so grab your data analysis skills or a friend and deep dive to your heart’s content.

What happens after Research Ethics and Morals are sundered?

Bait & Switch 2Three years before the FDA Approval of the HPV vaccine, the Indian government excoriated the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and a local Indian health partner for ethical violations in the HPV vaccine trial.  At the time, this was big news; now, the Big Tech companies are working hard to suppress the data.  These facts are laid down as a framework of before and after for the HPV vaccine trials.  The problems with HPV have not gone anywhere, but the HPV vaccine trials were a prominent and significant moral and ethical issue until COVID came along.  As a point of reference, the HPV vaccine trials in India supplanted the Tuskegee Institute’s abuse of patients as the worse case of research ethical, moral, and legal violations.

The European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) has covered the HPV vaccine Indian trials quite extensively, and complete information can be researched through their links by following this link.  The background and continuing research on HPV vaccine trials are critical to the COVID vaccine due to the mass human testing and the lack of accountability and responsibility from the parties pushing a vaccine that has left people blind, deaf, paralyzed, sterile, or dead.  The warnings for the COVID vaccine are very similar; the COVID vaccine could leave you in a number of worsened permanent injuries than suffering a couple of days with COVID; yet, COVID was indemnified, the HPV vaccine was not.  Still, those who have suffered have not even gotten a paper apology from the manufacturers, the US-Based non-profits, or the local Indian health partner.

VaccineHence, one can conclude if the population is cherry-picked, lacks sufficient resources, and is in a remote spot, medical ethics can be damned and humans tested with impunity.  The same thinking existed at Tuskegee Institute and led to the US adopting thousands of pages of ethical and legal standards for conducting human research.  Except, when fear is great enough, the media is hyping enough and peddling the Kool-Aid, and the government suspends their own rules and regulations, you can get FDA approval in record time with no long-term studies on effectiveness or even tolerances for safety.

America is in trouble when the US Constitution can be flaunted, and judges can legislate from the bench that employers can make employment contingent upon forced vaccination.  This case, and several others, will eventually end in the Supreme Court.  Will the milk toast judges, specifically appointed to protect our Constitutional Rights, waiver on the freedom and liberty clauses, or will they purchase a backbone and stand against the continued encroachment of rights and liberties in the name of kowtowing to the manipulated media and influenced government bureaucrats?  I would never have thought ObamaCare would have withstood the smell test and the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness clauses in the US Constitution, and we all know how that worked out!Why

With all the hype, media attention, and focus on the vaccine and not disease prevention, I can only ask questions.  Why is COVID being treated differently than every other viral disease in history?  Who is making money on the vaccine, and why is the vaccine being forced upon healthy populations that would do better without the vaccine?  Science abounds that claims if you are healthy, without co-morbidities, you can survive a case of COVID-19 (SARS-Cov-2), and be your immune system would be more beneficial than if you had the vaccine.  Why is everyone focused on vaccination when the mortality of this virus is significantly less than its nearest viral infection neighbor?  Why is the media focused on forced vaccinations; shouldn’t the press be pushing for revealing the truth, not drinking the Kool-Aid?

Knowledge Check!On 09 June 2021, The New York Times reported that the current COVID vaccine would “probably need booster shots.”  Why does this remind me of the continuous security updates to my computer?  Since the original COVID-19 virus is dead, what is the vaccine protecting us from?  Viruses mutate, frequently, often, and repeatedly; this is well-known to virologists who often repeat this fact in their research.  Yet, the media appear to be stuck on one variant, the original and then come up with crazy names for new variants.  Like naming weather systems and storms.  All this does is continue to spread fear and knee-jerk reactions, powered by emotional hyperbole. So why get a booster shot for a new strain?  Isn’t this a sneaky way of keeping the emergency going and emergency funding from the government flowing into Big-Pharma’s pockets?
