The “Vaccine” and our Basic Human Rights
Note; This article originally published here on Jan. 15, 2021
This post has taken longer for me to write and publish than anything else I have ever written. I attribute this to 2 factors;
1 – The explosion of information that is now coming out is overwhelming, I have been bogged down daily with trying to sift through everything which leaves little time to organize it into a presentable format to state my point, (while working a fulltime job). Along with this is the explosion of misinformation which creates a quagmire that is very difficult to navigate. Make no mistake there is an information WAR that is being waged at the moment and the only thing that I can tell you is to be vigilante in your pursuit of the truth. There are many inconsistencies that are very troubling. I’m finding far more red herrings than anything actually worthwhile.
2 – I have found that censorship has skyrocketed recently, (or maybe I’m just starting to pay more attention). I have found many sources, testimonies, evidence that I’ve built into this article only to have them removed/deplatformed a short while later necessitating spending the time to find them elsewhere, if I am even able to do that. That, in itself, is a symptom of the battle that’s being waged. Seriously think about this; regardless of your personal feelings about Donald trump, who, in their right mind, deplatforms the President of the United States???
By the same token I’m learning that censorship can be a confirmation that there can be some value to that material. I was interested a few days ago when I came across a Simon Parkes video and admit I was somewhat captivated with what he was saying but then came across a few videos debunking him. Regardless what you think about him, or his history one glaring fact did stand out; How is he able to contradict the mainstream narrative on platforms that have been removing/censoring others for the same dialogue, and at the same time becoming viral in a matter of days on his recent videos, (we’re talking millions of views)?
I’m sure that everyone can agree that there is a lot of “acting” going on.
Having said that I will reiterate a sentiment from my first post on this topic, (I will list those in the “Sources” section), do not take my word for anything, do your own research, find your own evidence, (although feel free to use anything that I have compiled and share it far and wide). Do not be content with what we’re being force fed over the main stream media, it is not the truth.
“Anti-vaxxers and Conspiracy Theories”
Why have these become ‘dirty words/phrases” in our society? Let’s get this out of the way first.
We have the RIGHT to choose whether we want a vaccine or not, for ANY reason that we deem fit. Simple, not much to be said about that is there? The point is that we are guaranteed this basic human right locally, nationally, and internationally, (Charter of rights, Constitution, Nuremberg Code, etc.). To call someone an “Anti-vaxxer” is negating their personal rights, its prejudice and it’s ignorant, (and in this age of political correctness it could be construed as harassment). Here’s a leap, let’s apply a little logic; what is your, or one’s problem with someone that won’t take a vaccine, your safety? (I will be discussing general public safety later so let’s just leave it on the personal/individual level for this point). If you’re that worried about a pathogen, and you take the vaccine then aren’t you now immune? So if you’re now immune why should you care if someone next to you chooses not to take the vaccine? Is there any other problem that is present with this scenario? Or are some people just not brave enough to think for themselves, and doing as they are “told to do’, resentful of others who make their own choices?
When someone asks me if I’m “anti-vaxxer” I respond wit, No, I’m “Pro-Science”
(1) HOW TO REFUSE MANDATED VACCINATIONS - GETTING READY TO SAY NO
Your body is a temple and only YOU have the right to decide what goes into it. Death via cytokine storm (an exaggerated immune response) following the second shot is how most folks will die from these COVID vaccines, (just one possibility). This is GENOCIDE and the deaths will be blamed on a "mutated strain" of COVID-19 instead of the fatal injections. More vaccines will then be mandated.
Here is a great perspective from Professor Mary Holland, (Law, Columbia University and Harvard), while this video is 15 minutes long it is well worth the watch considering these are our legal aspects. She is addressing the U.N. and it is amazing that this was in 2016 but it is more poignant, applicable and accurate to our present circumstances than ever before;

Having written several articles, (this will be the 9th on this topic), in the last few months I’ve never heard the terms “Conspiracy Theory” and “Conspiracy Theorist” so much in my whole life, (much of that directed at me, LMAO!!!), I’m reminded of an old saying;
“Just because I’m paranoid does not mean that they are not out to get me”
You can pull your head out of the sand and yell “Conspiracy Theory!” all you want but it doesn’t change anything. You don’t think there’s a conspiracy going on with this entire COVID fiasco? Try doing a little research, some questioning, and some digging; prove it to yourself without taking the mainstream narrative as gospel, like I have. Use your brain, your intelligence or you can just keep your head buried in the sand oblivious to the reality but don’t come crying to me when you get that painful vaccine jab in your exposed ass that you didn’t see coming because you’re NOT paying attention.
Did you know that there is a conspiracy theory about “conspiracy theories”? The whole concept is propaganda perpetuated by the C.I.A during the Cold War as a tool to thwart people’s attention away from them. They “cultivated” it to the point that as soon as someone claimed “Conspiracy theory/theorist” everyone would automatically discount it, without even questioning. How’s that for manipulation.
Here’s two links; the first link, (3), is a thesis written by Ed Rankin, PhD. , and the second one , (4),is to Wikipedia; discussing the C.I.A.’s “Operation Mockingbird”, (Propaganda).
Here’s a short excerpt from the Abstract/Introduction of Ed Rankin’s dissertation which explains how this works;
“Those challenging the official accounts of significant events are often labeled conspiracy theorists and the alternative explanations they propose are often referred to as conspiracy theories. These labels are frequently intended to dismiss the beliefs of those questioning potential hegemonic control of what people believe. The conspiracy theory concept functions as an impediment to legitimate discursive examination of conspiracy suspicions. The effect of the label appears to constrain even the most respected thinkers. This impediment is particularly problematic in academia, where thorough, objective analysis of information is critical to uncovering truth, and where members of the academy are typically considered among the most important of epistemic authorities. This paper follows the development and use of such terms as pejoratives used to shut down critical thinking, analysis, and challenges to authority. Evidence exists suggesting government agents were instrumental in creating the pejorative meme conspiracy theorist and the use of this pejorative continues in contemporary media. How has the phrase conspiracy theorist developed as a powerful hegemonic tool against those who challenge authority and claims made by powerful people and institutions? Keywords: conspiracy theory, conspiracy theorist, hegemony, propaganda, critical discourse analysis” (follow link for complete paper)
(3) The conspiracy theory meme as a tool of cultural hegemony: A critical discourse analysis
(4) Operation Mockingbird
The mental mechanics that allow this propaganda to be successful, (years of repetition), also applies to the term “anti-vaxxer”, no thought or thinking involved, just automatic labeling and dismissal upon hearing the term. Personally, try to get your head around this, after the research I’ve done over the last few weeks I believe the anti-vaxxers to be the more intelligent among us; (again do the research and see if I’m wrong)
I grew up with vaccines, was indoctrinated with the belief that they were necessary, and I guess I’m one of the lucky ones that did not suffer any adverse effects from them, (as far as I know). I understand the concept of a vaccine, the mechanics, how they work and to me the science is sound, in certain applications and with adequate time for development, testing, etc. Remember that our standard vaccines, polio, measles, etc. took DECADES to develop and while they are generally effective there are still rampant side effects and deaths. and you cannot state that all vaccines are good, helpful or for everyone. Along with the pros are the cons, and the questions. The needless damage and deaths, long term disabilities and negative impacts that vaccines have had through their history are extensive and well documented, (regardless how the pharmaceutical companies want to present it or how much they try to bury the negative).
In 2020 the US Govt. paid out $57 million damages for injuries and deaths from vaccines, and that’s just until March of that year when the “pandemic” was declared.
(5) US Govt Paid Over $57 Million For Vaccine Injuries In 2020 As Experimental COVID Vaccine Fast Tracked
(This is a great read with a lot of information, graphics and statistics)
I think we all understand the principle on how a vaccine works, here’s Wikipedia for further explanation;
As I said I do understand the science behind them but having done this research I am questioning them more so now. This is the topic for another discussion so let’s just get to the new COVID-19 “vaccine”. This is brand new technology, (yes, technology is the right word so I want you to think about that for a minute).
A traditional vaccine will introduce either a non-viable, or a weakened/modified live sample of a particular pathogen into our bodies to try to trigger and elicit a response, (hopefully a positive one with no negative repercussions), from our immune systems. We are informing our bodies of a possibility to a pathogen so that we can build a defence before we actually encounter this pathogen. It is interesting that once we have encountered a certain pathogen, either through infection or vaccine; we are generally immune to that for a very long time, or the rest of our lives. We have a genetic memory that remembers every “bug” that we have come across and we have the defences to deal with it. (Remember this point).
There is great debate among doctors as to whether, by definition, this new “shot” can even be called a “vaccine”, (in the traditional sense of the word). It is brand new, never been used on humans, nor tested satisfactorily. It is a mRNA delivery system; here’s Wikipedia’s definition of the mRNA;
While there some rather interesting alternative names I’m going to go with Dr. Simone Gold’s definition, she calls it an “Experimental Agent”. (Much more to come from Dr. Simone Gold, and her recent video, it was very enlightening). After my research I would have to agree that this cannot be defined as a vaccine, (I will list numerous doctor’s opinions on this in the “Sources” section). As soon as you accept that this is NOT a vaccine your decision about it will be much easier. Let’s look at some aspects;
There are 7 known Coronaviruses that infect us, COVID19, SARS, MERS, and four, endemic, common-cold inducing coronaviruses, (OC43, HKU1, 229E and NL63). Dr. Mike Yeadon states, (Source 7);
“It is my belief and that of multiple, top quality research groups around the world, that many individuals who’ve been infected by one or more of these endemic, common-cold producing coronaviruses in the past, have a long-lived and robust immunity, not only to those viruses, but to closely related viruses. SARS-CoV-2 is one such closely-related virus. Note the similarity of some of these viruses: SARS-CoV-2 is 80% identical to SARS at the gene level and the fusion subunit of all these common cold coronaviruses has high identity to the equivalent sequence of SARS-CoV-2 (Zhu et al, 2020). In researching this specific information, I came across scientists on discussion boards. One of them, responding to emerging data that immunologists were discovering SAR-CoV-2 reactive T-cells in patients never exposed to the virus, speculated that varying exposure and immunity to common cold coronaviruses might play a role in defining susceptibility to the novel virus. “
Further into the article;
“…In short, multiple research groups across Europe and the US have shown that no less than 20% and no more than 80% (clustering around 30%) of the population had robust responses of T-cells in their blood to SARS-CoV-2 BEFORE the virus reached their countries. More recently still, a fantastic piece of research in one of the top two leading research journals, Science, was published that explains how so many people had prior immunity to SARS-CoV-2, even though their immune systems had never seen that particular, novel virus (Mateus et al, 2020)”
(7) Dr Mike Yeadon, former CSO and VP, Allergy and Respiratory Research Head with Pfizer Global R&D and co-Founder of Ziarco Pharma Ltd
OK so he states, conservatively, that 30% of people could well be already immune.
Here is another quote from same article Dr. Mike Yeadon
“No Need For a Vaccine
There is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the pandemic. I’ve never heard such nonsense talked about vaccines. You do not vaccinate people who aren’t at risk from a disease. You also don’t set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with a vaccine that hasn’t been extensively tested on human subjects. This much I know after 30 years in the pharmaceutical industry. Yet there are such moves afoot. One thought piece suggests that anyone who refuses vaccination should be subject to indefinite house arrest (Mello et al, 2020). In some countries, there is talk of “no jab, no job”. There have even been job adverts for openings in NHS Wales for people to “oversee the vaccination of the entire population”. Any such proposals are not only completely unnecessary but if done using any kind of coercion at all, illegal.”
Here is another source, Dr. Keith Moran in this video illustrates that 40% - 60% of us are already immune without being exposed to COVID19 because of our previous exposures to other coronaviruses
I’ve been told by numerous doctors that to give a vaccine to someone who is already immune is not just stupid, but dangerous and even life threatening from a reaction called a Cytokine storm.
This is a major issue considering that W.H.O. and our governments want to vaccinate everyone. WHY???
I referenced a video by Dr. Simone Gold – “The truth about the CV19 vaccine”
She discusses this new “experimental agent” in depth and along with allergic reactions, possible sterility, neurological damage, etc. she greatly feared, “Antibody-dependent enhancement’
This is a great insightful video well worth the watch but she cites that scientists were indeed working on an mRNA vaccine since at least 2006 to combat SARS-COV-1; (COVID19 is also known as SARS-COV-2), and they tested it on ferrets in which after 2 vaccines they were exposed to the wild virus and all died from “Antibody dependant syndrome”.
Another serious problem with these conditions/reactions is they have the same symptoms as COVID19 and the only way to distinguish the difference is to do a full autopsy. They haven’t done any real autopsies yet and are blaming all kinds of deaths, car accidents, gunshot wounds, etc. on COVID19 so do you think they will start now? (They are doing this because of the MONEY! Hospitals are getting more money for COVID cases so they’re recording everything as that).NO, they’re just going to keep blaming COVID19 and rollout more vaccines.
I’m going to list some following points which have been presented repetitively from numerous sources, the references can be found in the “Vaccine” section of the Sources, please review them but the general consensus is as follows regarding this “Experimental Agent”;
- The new coronavirus shot does not give lasting immunity, if it even gives any at all, and there are fears that it may make healthy people sick.
- It does not eliminate the virus
- It does not prevent death, (and there is mounting evidence that it achieves the opposite)
- It does not guarantee that you won’t get sick or prevent contraction of the virus
- It does not prevent you from spreading the virus to others
- It does not contribute to herd immunity
- They say that we will have to continually take the shot, possibly twice a year
- It does not eliminate the need for lockdowns, masks, social distancing, travel bans, etc. As we are being told that even after vaccination these measures will stay in place.(although a topic for another discussion there is NO scientific basis for any of those measures being forced upon us)
So the question is; what is this new “Wonder Vaccine” 90% capable of actually doing??? Do these conditions apply to any vaccine that you know, and do these conditions fit into the common definition of a vaccine?
Another red flag that is blatant, to me anyway, is the fact that the pharmaceutical companies have been totally indemnified of ALL liability and responsibility for any adverse reactions and/or death resulting from this “Experimental Agent”. My opinion is that it should not be viewed as indemnity but collusion and governments and corporations need to be held just as responsible as the drug companies.
This is the crime of the century and the biggest crime against humanity in history.
We are being manipulated by our fear, for what purpose? Well that is the topic for another discussion but everyone needs to wake up! Use your brain, your intelligence and apply some logic to the circumstances. The math does not add up…
Fear is the only weapon that they have against us, take that away and they have nothing.
SOURCES, These are just what I’ve come across the last few weeks, there is a mountain of information, documentation and evidence out there, you just have to look for it

Thank you for sharing your well-researched information, Randall.
1 year ago #1
I hope this finds you .. and finds you well Randall
Please know many times you come to my mind.
I am SHOCKED that there are no comments here
Multiplied thanks for all the research you did here
I'm going to read & respond a little at a time .. to not miss all you present here
(I am reordering personal & work priorities - the time challenge we all have dad by day)
I love the Mark Twain quote (used in your prior post - from Nov 2020)
The world is filled to over-flowing with “energetic LIARS”
An energetic liar can confuse, mislead, and deceive people. Yet, in many cases, that same liar is unable to reverse the deception. Hoodwinked people embrace their misperceptions. Here is a pertinent adage:
It’s easier to FOOL people .. than to convince them they HAVE been fooled.” – Mark Twain
Which reminds me of Soren Kierkegaard
"There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what is not true.
The other is to refuse to believe what is true."
I am convinced the worst form of DECEPTION .. is self-deception
(this is the natural condition of the human-heart - and why spiritual rebirth is so essential to supernaturally transform the condition)
.. not to get sidetracked ..
That, in itself, IS a symptom of the battle that’s being waged.
Donald trump being de-platformed
.. speaks VOLUMES about who is in power .. and what THEIR agenda is
.. BEWARE & Be Aware ..
In the event you are looking for entertainment
Oh dear .. the “cancel culture” gods are loose
And now they’re coming for dear Dr. Seuss
People need to WAKE-UP .. resist .. fight back
For without question .. we are under attack
.. the spirit it carries .. WILL have its way
.. and it seems to increase every day
The “gods that lay down rules”
.. they think that you are FOOLS
Will you appease these gods .. who dictate what you should do
.. if you do not comply .. oh, the PUNISHMENT you shall rue
I'll leave you with this excellent comment on SCIENCE (from a LI post )
Andre Van Heerden writes ..
Excellent article, Nick. This excerpt from my 2018 essay is apposite: "The benefits of science are staggering; but there is a downside.
Science faces a serious ethical crisis.
Malign and deceptive research, dishonest claims, inhumane medical experiments, the development of dangerous drugs, collusion with questionable corporate, political, and military schemes, ideological contamination, the erosion of professional collegiality, and many other reprehensible practices, undermine the image of science...
Science is not the issue here; scientists and their sponsors are.
Science doesn’t promote self-serving personal agendas, because science is not a person. Science is a method of inquiry, invented by humans to find the truth about material reality. When it departs from that ideal it inevitably becomes corrupted.
The moral collapse of the West is a devastating threat to both science and leadership, but the truth on which they both stand will ultimately prevail. What is often forgotten is that most of the ethical failures within the scientific community are exposed by scientists who have kept their moral compass, and who understand that science will only flourish when it is practiced with the virtues essential to it."
