PsyOps on Moms and Pops for Giving Covid Shots to Tots
Facts to Comfort Fear-Mongered Parents
Don’t Be a Sucker, Think for Yourself Series #2
2 minute video https://rumble.com/vz363d-parents-are-watching.html
Many parents of children from 6 months to 4 years were disappointed and fearful when the FDA postponed the February 15 meeting to rush Pfizer’s application for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for little ones.  It was delayed due to lack of safety data.
Loving, naively trusting, protective, otherwise responsible parents have been bewildered, frustrated, and angry about the perceived cruel denial of experimental genetic manipulations, deceptively called “vaccines,” to the next youngest cohort. (After considerable exploration I recommend calling them “spikeshots.”) We are told incessantly that these shots are “safe and effective,” despite early trial data plus data from older children, indicating that harms far outweigh claimed, exaggerated, and disproven benefits.
Out of fear, many families with unspiked children under 5 still voluntarily lock themselves down, even after theirspikeshots failed to prevent infection, transmission or the promised herd immunity. Some feel compelled to suffer in suspended animation until every person gets the spikeshot as the one and only way we can all be liberated, safe and end our collective nightmare.
A Done Deal
As the public is wising up, the FDA and CDC are upping their tactics, finding ways to evade new scrutiny and to continue to impose foregone approvals. Having bypassed normal procedures, the FDA, now rescheduled for tomorrow, April 6, might even authorize a 3-dose series of these mRNA shots, maybe without a vote. They are now being more secretive about their agenda.
They create an illusion of a decision-making process. Selected panelists with financial ties to Pfizer deny conflicts of interest. None has successfully treated Covid patients and pretend that those who do don’t exist. They present slides, finesse flawed, manipulated, incomplete, cherry-picked, propagandized “safety data.” They ignore credible challenging public comments. Some appear to have integrity and express grave doubts before voting to approve. Votes are always unanimous except for one abstention on October 26 by Dr. Michael Kurilla, who dared not vote NO.
* At the 10/26 FDA VRBPAC meeting, they ignored over 140,000 public comments. (many thanks to Toby Rogers’ calls to action), over 99% urging a NO vote. (Here is Dr. Meryl Nass’s live blog of the meeting – her comments expose and factcheck their deceptions and dirty tricks – she will live blog on April 6 for CHD, you can follow)
* They shortened one-hour public comment period, still ignoring challenges to their methods and conclusions. See 30- minute public comments from CDC’s ACIP November 2 meeting which voted to approve spikeshots for kids 5 – 11.
* Beginning in November, they stopped showing the faces of panelists (lest they be recognizable?) which felt very weird. We got to look at the CDC building while they spoke, except when presenting slides.
* They stopped showing the faces of those making public comments, reducing the human connection 30- minute public comments. Public comments against the vote presented substantive scientific reasons. Those urging the vote presented platitudes and propaganda.
Despite the pretense of presenting (rigged, fudged) safety data, holding a discussion and decision-making process and a vote, which they may skip this time, it is always a done deal.
The federal government has already purchased 30 million doses for little ones and, as always, the CDC’s plans for mass distribution programs and pop-up clinics will roll out in days, as they have with each older cohort.
Like the 2003 US led invasion of Iraq following global protests, it is a done deal.
Talking Points that Frighten Parents into Compliance
This shocking FB message shows how deep the PsyOps penetrates, despite reality. Even after experiencing frightening adverse reactions, some parents are still willing to subject their kids to the shots, overriding their fears and anxieties. We all know people who have had severe reactions but still encourage everyone to get spiked.
The WHO, CDC, FDA, WEF, Big Pharma spend billions on behavioral scientists designing messaging to promote “vaccine confidence” in coordination with Big Tech. Information that challenges the narrative is censored as mis, dis, and mal-information that promotes “vaccine hesitancy,” a terrible, terrible thing.
Highly scripted talking points are magically broadcast in lockstep across most media platforms and countries.They seduce parents into believing that delaying these Pfizer BioNTech mRNA spikeshots forces their children to remain vulnerable.
Below are talking points I have heard from young parents and on NPR and other media, followed by descriptions of some psychological techniques I have observed.
Decoding Talking Points for Why Children Should Receive Covid Shots
How do you seduce parents into spiking children who have virtually zero chance transmitting or of dying from Covid, with an injection that does not prevent infection or transmission, and lacks good safety data? There are no cases of healthy children under 19 dying in a Germany study among others.
The talking points below promote deeply and widely held beliefs, despite the fact that “The truth is that children aged 5-11 are at extremely low risk of hospitalization, death, MIS-C or Long COVID.” Meryl Nass
1. mRNA shots are “vaccines.”
Truth – mRNA “spikeshots” are experimental genetic manipulations that have never been used before on humans. They are entirely different from vaccines except for being injected. They do not provoke an immune response that prevents infection or transmission, but cause the body to manufacture spike proteins that cannot be controlled.
Calling them “vaccines” is a PsyOp, a hypnotic induction that provokes a lifetime of deep emotions, associations with saving humanity and identification with widely accepted actual childhood vaccines, which most are used to giving their children as a matter of routine. Equating spikeshots with vaccines has a huge, profound, seductive psychological impact. It supports mindless acceptance and lack of curiosity and questioning.
2. Children are vulnerable and unprotected without a Covid shot
Truth – Children are protected by their superior innate immune systems. Spikeshots can disrupt, dysregulate and suppress their innate immune systems and render them more vulnerable throughout life. Covid shots cannot make anyone healthy, as we are told. Protection of children can be strengthened by healthy diet, fresh air, sunlight and vitamin D, etc.

3. Even though children have a low risk of dying from Covid, spikeshots will protect them from Covid Long Haul and unnecessary suffering
Truth – Long covid is extremely rare in children. It can be prevented with early treatment or with protocols developed collaboratively by doctors who successfully treated long haul.
4. Spikeshots are “safe and effective.” No one has died from the shot. The only reactions might be a sore arm, fever, chills and fatigue.
Truth - Sudden deaths, heart attacks, strokes, paralysis, myocarditis and other cardiac, immune, hematological and neurological conditions have increased dramatically in the past year. The abundance of data on adverse reactions, injuries, disabilities and deaths has been minimized, misdiagnosed as psychological, denied, and censored.

Toby Rogers’ What is the Number Needed to Vaccinate (NNTV) to prevent a single COVID-19 fatality in kids 5 to 11 based on the Pfizer EUA application?
5. Children have a higher risk of MIS-C - Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children from getting Covid than from the shots.
Truth – MIS-C, multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children is a severe inflammatory syndrome that is rare and usually completely resolves. It can occur after Covid and also after the spikeshot. The CDC exaggerates the risk of MIS-C from Covid. "CDC cherrypicked one UK study of MIS-C symptoms that are prolonged, which is not what the majority of studies have found.” Meryl Nass, MD. There is no evidence that spikeshots prevent MIS-C.
6. Children have a higher risk of myocarditis and pericarditis from getting Covid than from the shots. Cases of myocarditis from the spikeshot are mild, brief and get better. No big deal.
Truth – Myocarditis, diagnosed in 1 in 2700 male teenagers after their second shot is not mild, brief or reversible. That is absurd and an obvious lie. There may be more as many cases are subclinical, from people who died without autopsies and are undiagnosed. We don’t know how often it occurs in younger children. Doctors, funeral directors and embalmers are seeing cases in younger people they have never seen before, also reported by the insurance companies – but not by the CDC. Heart conditions in the young are being normalized and Big pharma is conveniently coming out with new drugs for them.
This is so important that I am including some excerpts from Dr. Meryl Nass’s liveblog exposing minimization of myocarditis.
Here is the full blog for the day https://live.childrenshealthdefense.org/admin/fda-advisory-committee/fullscreen-chat She will be live blogging again at the April 6 meeting on CHD – follow in if you can. It will be enlightening.
merylnass: The reason myocarditis is the primary issue covered regarding safety is because it could not be covered up. Myocarditis almost always occurs within 4 days of a shot, and is usually associated with dramatic symptoms like chest pain, making it very hard to ignore.
merylnass: The committee is looking at recovery and lack of recovery in a group with myocarditis. Of 989 reports that met the CDC case definition, 850 were aged 12-29. However, higher rates of myocarditis were noted in males aged up to age 50.
merylnass: It was pointed out that by restricting cases to 7 days post each dose, CDC managed to discard the pericarditis cases, which occur later and tend to occur in an older age group.
merylnass: Although CDC has earlier claimed that practically all myocarditis cases fully resolve, that is not what the data show--and these cases are being evaluated on average 6 months after symptom onset.
merylnass: On average, at 190 days after diagnosis, 39% of cases STILL had their activity restricted by their doctors. 32% of cases STILL reported chest pain; 22% still had shortness of breath, 22% had palpitations and 25% still reported fatigue. Nearly half the cases still had symptoms.
merylnass: While up to 80% of doctors said they thought the patients were fully, or probably fully recovered, it was made clear they had not returned to normal--rather, they were not expected to show additional improvement.
merylnass: As usual, CDC tries to gloss over the actual facts. As usual, each speaker brags about the hard work they and their team did to gather the info in their presentation. Talbot said they had 45 meetings and everyone showed up ready to work. Well, then why did her presentation fail to include a single new fact? Or a single new analysis?
merylnass: I forgot: when the myocarditis cases were queried, about 6 months after onset, 20% were still taking a medication they had been given for their heart. Just more evidence that a large subset of myocarditis patients, perhaps about half, never return to their baseline. When you consider that these are college and high school kids, mostly, it is a terrible stain on these public health "experts" who never do their job, which is to balance risk and benefit for each demographic group to decide what should be recommended. AND these people know that most of their "recommendations" will be enforced as mandates, but they remain silent on that issue.
merylnass: Dr. Shimabukuro was asked if there were any myocarditis deaths? Ah yes, that little subject was omitted, but amazingly, he had a slide about it--he just hadn't shown it. It turns out that VAERS had received 13 reports of myocarditis deaths (can't be certain if it was in the 12-29 age group). What did CDC do with the information? I guess there were three they did not want to deal with, so they threw them out due to lack of information, such as no autopsy. But CDC has every US death certificate; did the doctor say the patient died of myocarditis? Of the 10 cases left, 8 were evaluated and 2 are pending. CDC decided that 3 did not meet their case definition. (Was their definition designed to be exclusionary? I know it changed since 2003 when CDC had to deal with the smallpox vaccine-induced myocarditis cases. That left 5 cases who all died with myocarditis. CDC claimed that yes, each died of myocarditis, and no, CDC did not deny they were vaccinated--but instead, Dr. Shimabukuro said they might have had other infectious illnesses that led to myocarditis. Might. Possibly. So CDC decided they were not due to an mRNA vaccine.

7. Children have higher risk of hospitalization from Covid. Hospitals are suddenly overflowing with “unvaccinated” children with Covid, especially under 5 (age depends on timing next rollout)
Magical new threatening risks to the population seem to be broadcast in lockstep across all media platforms before each new spikeshot vote and inevitable approval and rollout.
Vinay Prasad described “Mass youth hospitalizations, COVID-induced diabetes, and other myths from the brave new world of science as political propaganda in How the CDC Abandoned Science”
“In all cases, the papers are uniquely timed to further political goals and objectives; as such, these papers appear more as propaganda than as science. Some might view it as a mistake, but I believe it was the entire point of the study: Alarm might boost flagging vaccine uptake in kids.”
Other confounding factors regarding children who are actually hospitalized -
* Many children go to the hospital for other reasons, as even Fauci admitted, like a broken arm or asthma, and then test positive (perhaps even false positive PCR test).
* Children in the hospital have co-morbidities.
* Omicron is a more infectious and mild variant (the way viruses historically mutate as they accelerate herd immunity, which is a good thing.) Many parents rush to the hospital if the get a positive test. It need not be alarming that there are more infections.
8. “Unvaccinated,” i.e. unspiked children have a higher risk of death from Covid than from the shots
Truth – Check out this letter to FDA’s Dr. Janet Woodcock with references to data on this.
One of many tricks that promote the myth of “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” is the categorization of people as “unvaccinated” until 14 days after their second mRNA shot or first J&J shot. Many injuries and deaths occur within the first days and weeks after the shot, so someone injured 13 days after an injection is listed as ‘unvaccinated.” Most deaths are on day one and two. Every death before day 14 is counted as “unvaccinated.” No kidding.
People of “unknown” status are often lumped in with “unvaccinated.”
9. Children must get Covid shots to protect older people, family members and teachers. We don’t want them to suffer guilt if they infect someone who gets sick or dies. Children need the shots to protect others.
Truth – There is some evidence that although adults can transmit Covid to children, that children under 9 do not transmit Covid. It has been claimed the teachers spread it to each other in schools but children do not spread to teachers.
Even if children did transmit, it is completely unethical and against the flow of nature to sacrifice children for adults. Elders and anyone vulnerable should be quarantined, well cared for, and check vitamin D levels, do prophylaxis, immune boosting, try to correct co-morbidities, and prepare for early treatment. Children should never feel responsible for endangering adults’ health.
The estimated over 58% of children with natural immunity are safe to be around and can visit even immune compromised people without fear or guilt.
When children acquire natural immunity, they provide a buffer for adults. Rather than being a threat to Grandma, they actually protect her.
10. Children need shots to safely attend school. Even if masks are optional for children over 5, those under 5 must still wear masks until they are eligible for Spikeshots.
Truth – Requiring masks only for children 4 and under, now optional for older children, is a PsyOp – making parents of younger ones feel those unspiked are vulnerable and eager to give their children spikeshots so they can take off the mask.
The lockdown and school closings have caused far more harm than good – educational setbacks, disruption of social and emotional development, anxiety, depression, domestic abuse and more. No data supports effectiveness of masks in children. They are unlikely to transmit. They have little risk from Covid and potential benefit.
11. Even if my child has natural immunity, we don’t know how long it will last so they should get the shots for “hybrid immunity” which is much stronger.
Truth There is no such thing as “hybrid immunity.” It is made up to convince people to get the shots. Nothing improves upon natural immunity which has been recognized for centuries and is accepted around the world. It has never been questioned until now, mainly in the US by the CDC. People with natural immunity have 3 – 6 times higher risk of adverse reactions, injuries, disability and death from Spikeshots.
Over 58% of people have natural immunity. There are over 160 studies demonstrating that natural immunity is far superior than spikeshot immunity. Screen your family for natural immunity. Some have antibodies and some with no antibodies against Covid have positive T cell tests, more accurate. Natural immunity is enduring, for years, perhaps for life, robust and flexible.
What Parents Are Not Told
* Children have a 99.9973% Covid survival rate
* Children have effective innate immune systems, better than adults, that usually handle the virus quickly and efficiently
* Children with Covid usually have no symptoms or mild symptoms
* If children have symptoms, they can get excellent effective early treatments
* A healthy immune system is the best defense against any illness. Good nutrition, vitamin D, C, zinc, quercetin, etc. can reduce or prevent severity
* Children have a golden opportunity to acquire enduring, robust natural immunity, likely to last a lifetime and free them from a lifetime of boosters and living in fear
* Children with natural immunity contribute to herd immunity. They provide a buffer for adults and are not a threat
* People with natural immunity are at 3 – 6 times higher risk for adverse reactions to an mRNA shot they don’t need.
* The very few children who died already had life-threatening conditions. They died with Covid, not from Covid.
* Many large studies, showed zero deaths of healthy children dying from Covid
* After a FOIA request the CDC could not produce one case of a healthy child under 11 dying from Covid in the US
Informed Consent Action Network’s Attorney Aaron Siri writes that “CDC Admits Crushing Rights of Naturally Immune Without Proof They Transmit the Virus: After formal demand, the CDC concedes it does not have proof of a single instance of a naturally immune individual spreading the virus.”
The Media Fails to Mention that
* Spikeshots turn bodies into spike protein generating factories that cannot be controlled
* These experimental genetic manipulations are not approved
* They have never been used on humans
* Spikeshots contain toxic chemicals, some undisclosed
* Unlike natural immunity, Covid shots’ efficacy wanes quickly
* They will likely be required to take repeated boosters
* There is increasing emerging evidence of negative efficacy, meaning the shots actually increase the risk of getting Covid. A high percent of infections, hospitalizations and deaths are among the spiked, double-spiked and triple-spiked
* The CDC and FDA rushed through previous EUA approvals based on flawed, fraudulent clinical trials that
used very few subjects
only followed subjects for a very short time, too short to detect waning antibodies, medium and long-term adverse reactions, including infertility
excluded subjects who had reactions to the shots
concealed data from the public
played numbers games like misrepresenting effectiveness, cutting off data before it waned, creating the illusion that early relative risk, 95% was absolute risk, about 1% giving the impression of 95% protection from infection
eliminated the control group by giving them the shots so that it would be impossible to show that people in the control group are healthier
misrepresented data like by reporting children in the control group who got Covid in an alarming way, even though it was mild and they have natural immunity and ignoring that kids in the experimental group had adverse reactions to spikeshots
There is no necessity
Alarming danger signals of adverse reactions and deaths are grossly under reported and censored
The FDA and CDC have financial conflicts of interest and profit from the vaccines
The FDA, CDC and Big Pharma are extremely eager to get mRNA shots on the CDC child vaccine schedule without which they cannot to get immunity from liability
Why PsyOps Works
These parents are not crazy, stupid, reckless and delusional. They trust authorities. They are busy and tired. Many do not feel scientifically competent to do their own investigation. They may or may not lack curiosity. Responsible adults to do not feel a need to seek out alternative sources of information. They are surrounded by consensus. They have no idea of what has been censored.
What they are told seems plausible and has a “truthiness” to it. Masks, distancing, lockdowns and injections appear to work on the physical realm. It is like Newtonian physics versus quantum physics on the invisible, microscopic realm.
Most have given their children actual vaccines, following the CDC schedule, required by most schools. Vaccines are a gateway drug to spikeshots. Parents don’t need to make a cognitive, psychological, or emotional leap from actual vaccines to experimental genetic manipulations.
They receive information from familiar, highly trusted sources, especially National Public Radio (NPR), funded by the Gates Foundation and Johnson & Johnson. NPR is brilliant at messaging. They feature comments by authorities like Fauci, Walensky, Leana Wen, and others who urge pregnant women, people with natural immunity, the immune compromised and children, none of whom were included in the clinical trials, to get spikeshots despite known risks.
Some PsyOp Techniques and Processes
Mattias Desmet’s Elegant Model of Mass Formation and Mass Hypnosis
We have recently been enlightened by the work of Belgian psychologist Mattias Desmet.
He studies social conditions conducive to the emergence of totalitarianism including:
1.Social Isolation – lack of social bonds, community, loneliness
2.Experiencing life as meaningless, senseless– meaningless work, disengagement
3.Free-floating anxiety, not attached to a mental representation like fear of a lion
4.Free floating frustration and pent-up aggression
Covid policies created and magnified all of these conditions. To these 4 I add unrelenting stress, fear, grief, betrayal, unpredictability, dread, insecurity, financial devastation, shame, guilt, educational setbacks, inferiority, humiliation, envy, domestic abuse, trauma, helplessness, vulnerability, dashed hopes, and having one’s entire social fabric ripped away.
Intolerable psychic pain threatens to turn into panic, generating an overwhelming urge for relief. Desmet describes how a transformation occurs when “under these conditions, a narrative, a story is distributed through the mass media indicating an object of anxiety, and at the same time, providing a strategy to deal with this object of anxiety.”
This intoxicating narrative enables people to feel connected in a “heroic struggle with the object of anxiety,” simultaneously providing meaning, a new kind of solidarity, a channel for pent-up aggression and “a huge willingness to participate in this strategy to deal with this object of anxiety because in this way, people feel they can control their anxiety and social discontent.”
This offers tremendous relief.
Below are more mechanisms that fuel this transformation.
* The Power of Existential Fear and Regression
“Fear of the virus is more dangerous than the virus itself?” Mattias Desmet
The dominant narrative manipulates fear of everyone all the time. Death seems like a random crapshoot. Young, healthy people feel terrified of dying, infecting and killing others.
When afraid, people can be more dangerous, regress to primitive levels of functioning, lose higher level cognitive functions, capacity for logic, the ability to anticipate consequences and to understand cause and effect. Fear renders people more vulnerable to manipulation, exploitation and compliance.
Fear-reducing information is suppressed regarding immune boosting lifestyle choices, prophylaxis, early treatments, natural immunity, and knowledge that healthy children don’t die or transmit to adults.
* Terror Management Theory (TMT)
Social psychology research shows how awareness of one’s death provokes existential anxiety. People mobilize “anxiety buffering systems,” providing illusions of transcending death. Confronting people with their mortality(mortality salience) disrupts this buffer, increasing fear, hostility to outgroups, attachment to one’s ingroup, nationalism, prejudice, support for violence and attraction to charismatic leaders who appear to offer protection.
Playing on our fear of death, exaggerating its randomness and our helplessness drives the framing of the Covid narrative. To protect ourselves, we mobilize an “anxiety buffering system” providing illusions and meaning systems of transcending death.
* Alternating Relief and Increased Threat
This is a form of psychological manipulation, to alternate periods of relief, letting down restrictions as people are weary and restless and less willing to take it, which can later be reimposed with new, imaginary of exaggerated threats. Certainly the hype about Omicron, which was mild and contributing to herd immunity and potentially the end of the pandemic was used to impose new restrictions, cancel flights and visas, only to be open up later. This is a way to control the population.
RD Laing defines mystification as a “plausible misrepresentation” of reality. “By representing forms of exploitation as forms of benevolence, the exploiters bemuse the exploited into feeling at one with their exploiters, or into feeling gratitude for what (unrealized by them) is their exploitation, and, not least, into feeling bad or mad even to think of rebellion.”
Mystification maintains stereotyped roles by masking truth with false constructions of what is actually happening and what a conflict is actually about, though people may not feel confused. In fact, they may feel quite assured of their position. Laing concluded that “before enlightened action can be taken, the issues have to be demystified.”
The dominant narrative is portrayed as an absolute, undeniable truth accepted by all sane people. Those who challenge it are deemed stupid, crazy and dangerous and must be convinced or punished. The US spent $10 billion on messaging, hiring behavioral scientists to convince the “vaccine hesitant,” with rewards and punishments.
* Attributing Adverse Reactions to Spikeshots and Anything But
For awhile, subjects in early clinical trials who had adverse reactions and deaths were eliminated from trial data. Their reactions were often denied, censored, or misdiagnosed as psychological reactions. Maddie deGaray, who volunteered for a clinical trial at age 12 had severe reactions and is in a wheelchair with a feeding tube. He was listed as having abdominal pain.
As reactions increase and are harder to deny, they have become attributed to absurd causes. Anything but the spikeshots, despite all data.
* Framing Deprivation
To promote a yearning for spikeshots, the media uses highly charged language of deprivation, uttered with desperate emotional tones like “withholding” these shots from children, forcing them to be “unprotected” and ”vulnerable” because they are not “eligible.” Anecdotal horror stories illustrate the need to get spiked.
They speak with compassion and social justice about ethics of providing spikeshots to deprived countries, despite evidence that they have lower rates of infections, hospitalizations and deaths. They ask, “Dare we get boosters when country x (usually African) hasn’t gotten their first shot?
* Demonization of the Unspiked
Lockstep media messaging blames and demonized the unspiked as standing in the way of liberating all of humanity from the pandemic. They are described as terrorists and murderers, provoking existential fear and a shocking degree of hostile intolerance towards people who question the dominant US Covid narrative.
Psychologist Mattias Desmet, and all studying totalitarianism note the requirement for a scapegoat to blame for society’s ills.
People who chose not to get spiked are propagandized to be reckless, dangerous, selfish, ignorant, right wing, Trump-loving extremists. At best some are naïve, misguided, framed as “hesitant”, especially Blacks due to historical injustices like Tuskegee and more.
Lifelong friends, relatives and colleagues, people loved, respected and admired for years or decades are deemed to have suddenly gone off the deep end overnight because of one opinion. Formerly decent people assume the right to be hostile, insulting and rejecting.
* False Promises
Protection, health, access, an end to the pandemic, travel, freedom.
* Euphemisms and Slogans
Pandemic of the unvaccinated, anti-vaxxers, Build Back Better
* Groupthink, Conformity and Herd Mentality
Yale psychologist Irving Janis defined groupthink as, “A mode of thinking that people engage in when they are deeply involved in a cohesive in-group, when the members' strivings for unanimity override their motivation to realistically appraise alternative courses of action.” With groupthink, few dare to challenge the dominant mindset.
Pressures for conformity discourage independent thinking, expressions of doubts and openness to alternative views, facts and bodies of knowledge. It impairs sound decision making, leading to flawed decisions.
For example, in January1986 scientists tried to stop the launch of the Challenger space shuttle, warning that the O-rings would freeze and endanger the mission. Due to groupthink this idea was rejected and the Challenger, with the first teacher in space, exploded shortly after launch.
Without herd mentality, we might have achieved herd immunity long ago, like the Amish.
* Overconfidence and Denial
In promoting agendas, it is common in to exaggerate the potential for success and to deny and minimize negative, catastrophic consequences and blowback.
Before invading Iraq, we were told it would be a “cakewalk” (whatever that is), that we would be greeted with flowers, that it would pay for itself and we might be out in 6 weeks, or no more than 6 months (Donald Rumsfeld).
* All or Nothing, Concrete, Black-and-White Thinking
The media highlights numbers of infections with great alarm without context, stratification by age, how many mild or asymptomatic. They never mention recovery rates.
If millions of young, or older people, easily survive Covid and get natural immunity contributing to herd immunity, isn’t that a good thing?
* Framing as a Right Against Left Issue
They are pitting us against each other. Everything is all right or left. “Anti-vaxxers” are right wing extremists and pro-vaxxers who want masks, mandates and lockdowns are Dems (mostly true in congress).
"I knew I couldn’t kill them. More powerful men than me have tried. But if I could get them to kill each other …". — Colonel Helmut Zemo, Captain America: Civil War
By playing into their game, we diminish our power to change. We are dumbed down, simplistic, lack nuance, complexity, detail, and deeper understanding. We truly have strange bedfellows. We need to “shed our skins” rise above partisanship to get out of this.
* Framing Benefits as Risks
Here is a slide on Benefits and Risks from FDA’s 10/26/21 meeting of Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) to vote for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of Pfizer’s mRNA “vaccines” for 5 – 11-year-olds.
Slides and other event materials can be found here. This slide might convince a naïve person that the benefits outweigh the risks. One of the great benefits is
Hong Yang, Ph.D. Senior Advisor for Benefit-Risk Assessment Office of Biostatistics and Epidemiology Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research presented this chart on the
Benefits-Risks of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for Ages 5 to 11 Years.
Benefit 1. Preventable Covid Cases - Preventing 45,000 children from getting Covid.
That means that instead of 45,000 children easily surviving mild Covid and acquiring natural immunity and providing herd immunity with no chance of dying – which would be a wonderful thing and part of the solution – those 45,000 children will be injected with mRNA, have short-lived immunity to one specific variant, unless it is obsolete by the time they get spiked, subject to a lifetime of booster shots with unknown effects of cumulative toxins and cytotoxic spike proteins.
This “benefit” may damage their immune system, cause antibody dependent enhancement, adverse reactions, disabilities and/or deaths, and potential long term impacts like infertility, neurological problems and more.
Benefit 2. Preventable Hospitalizations –Hospitalizations are more likely from the shots than from Covid. Even with Covid, it is very treatable and hospitalizations can be easily prevented by many effective protocols (FLCCC, Zelenko, etc.)
Benefit 3. Preventable Covid Deaths. False. Covid deaths in this age group are zero. Deaths are more likely from the shots.
Risks 1- 4: All of these risks of myocarditis/pericarditis cases, hospitalizations, ICU stays and deaths are real and serious. However, there are many more risks not included like blood clots, anaphylaxis, neurological problems, paralysis seizures,
They claimed there was no anaphylaxis or Bells palsey, other adverse events were unrelated to the vaccines. Solution to the risk of myocarditis – be vigilant for signs of chest pain
* The Antibody Myth
Much of the hype about vaccines focuses only on antibodies in ways that can falsely hype the effectiveness of spikeshots that boost antibodies immediately. This seems absolutely true and compelling to the general public.
Claims that absence of antibodies or waning antibodies in Covid survivors means that they no longer have immunity and need to get the shots. They ignore other parts of the immune system and natural immunity more reliably and accurately reflected by T-Cells and memory B cells and memory T cells.
Admitting that spikeshot antibodies wane over time is used to promote beliefs in the need for booster shots which are causing immune exhaustion and increasing adverse reactions, deaths and negative efficacy. They fail to mention potential dangers of antibody dependent enhancement.
* Induced Helplessness and the Denial of Personal Agency
In Seligman’s theory of learned helplessness, dogs were given electric shocks in cages with inescapable barriers. They learned that their actions have no effect. Dogs and people learn that they can’t make a difference. They give up, helpless. Then, when the barrier is removed, even in situations that are escapable, they don’t try.
Helplessness elevates immune-suppressing cortisol levels. Knowledge of actions one can take educes fear, anxiety, helplessness and cortisol.
Public health, about contagion, emphasizes superficial behavior and avoidance. Germ theory promotes fear of the external world and ignores host resistance and terrain theory – things we can actually do something about.
We are told to passively wait for a “vaccine” savior to rescue us. Until the magical shots people could only lockdown, mask and distance. We were never told about boosting our immune systems, personal agency and mastery over our health, including prophylaxis to reduce severity of symptoms or early treatments.
* Create Suffering and then Offer a Way Out
This is obvious. After two years of deprivation, isolation, and restrictions, offer people a way to get back their essential human needs – a spikeshot, travel, gatherings, a digital passport. These can later be retracted, requiring more compliance.
Many will get spiked in order to keep their jobs, to travel to regain some semblance of freedom and our humanity.
One of my daughters who had natural immunity was pressured last summer by her entire social circle to get a shot she didn’t need. She called it a “license to hug,” especially her nieces. She got Omicron afterward and even her friends are doubting boosters, thankfully.
* The “Yes, But” Technique: Admission with Head Fake and Lying
This technique is used by powers that be to get around inconvenient truths that they can’t deny. It seems to work well.
It is a huge challenge to convince parents to spike their little ones when data shows that
1. Covid is virtually risk—free, and confers superior natural immunity, and
2. Spikeshots are full of risk, known (by those who follow independent science, doctors and VAERS data, or know victims) to cause a myriad of immune, neurological, hematological and cardiac reactions. Myocarditis, notable in younger males and athletes, is increasing as the mRNA shots are approved for younger populations who have no benefit, only risk from the shots.
If the “pushers” exaggerated the nonexistent dangers of Covid, they would lose credibility. So they say yes, the risk of death is low, but there is always long haul, MIS-C, worse myocarditis, killing grandma, hospitalizations, etc.
If they denied the alarming rates of myocarditis appearing around the world, including countries that halted these shots for people under 30, or under 18, they would lose credibility. So, they had no choice but to admit that yes, there are cases of myocarditis after the shots, but, myocarditis from Covid is worse and more frequent than myocarditis from (safe and effective) spikeshots – a lie. They claim that myocarditis in young people, is rare, mild and not so bad. Some got better. Others are “still improving.” At the CDC ACIP meeting, At the November 2, 2021 CDC ACIP meeting, they forgot to mention a death after the shot in their study until someone inconveniently asked.
Whenever an adverse reaction is admitted, whether myocarditis, MIS-C, death, or anything else, in each instance, by some strange coincidence, every injury, disability or death associated with the covid shots turns out to be far more frequent and far worse from getting Covid itself!
They fail to acknowledge all of the other adverse reactions and deaths besides myocarditis, impossible to deny because it occurs in days and is universally recognized.
* Guaranteed Conclusion
No matter what, whether one already has natural immunity, zero risk from Covid, is pregnant or nursing, or is at high risk of adverse reactions from the shots, for every actual, potential, or realistic or biologically impossible imaginary problem, in every instance, the conclusion is always that no matter what, you should always still get the Covid shot.
Infinitely more dirty tricks, numbers games, bribery, fraud, and fear tactics are too numerous for this article.
Celia Farber makes a profound point in The Final Frontier: Pfizer Takes Aim At Green Light For Babies As Young As Six Months, Despite Devastating Data
“There was one kind of death we were permitted to fear: Death from this (weaponized lava) called Covid, which killed in a way that would perhaps never be fully understood—equal parts psycho-tronic, trauma-based, iatrogenic, and synthetic (“bio-weapon.”) Its antidote came to be called “vaccines,” and so the entire culture enshrined itself in these arms of supposed “mRNA” salvation, this Venus de Milo.”
“ … before enlightened action can be taken, the issues have to be demystified.”
---- R.D. Laing
 EUA for children over 5 was successfully rushed through with inadequate and questionable data and little attention. Members of the panel, many with financial ties to Pfizer and undeclared conflicts of interest, voted for approval, completely ignoring public 140,00 comments, over 99% begging them to vote against approval. Independent scientists, health care professionals, parents and the public are catching on to their antics, which helped delay this one. We need to build momentum.

An article appeared yesterday on the Grey Zone that explained, for the first time I've seen, what happened to turn normally peace and freedom-oriented Leftists into supporters of censorship and authoritarian mandates.
I think your diagnosis of "Intolerable psychic pain" explains what people on the left suffered from exposure to Trump's breaking all norms of behavior. Add fear to that and people "regress to primitive levels of functioning, lose higher level cognitive functions, capacity for logic, the ability to anticipate consequences and to understand cause and effect." That's how a movement that almost won a Presidential nomination was neutralized and turned 180 degrees.
Thanks for yet another well researched and substantive article. I think you'll appreciate my substack from yesterday which speaks to the issues of children and their doctors, pediatricians, who are continuing to promote vaccination. SHAME ON ALL OF THEM. The question I ask in my articles is How do you sleep at night?
