Fauci's Glaring Cohort Problem
And WHY HE NEEDS YOUR KID VAXXED - Part I

In the spring of 2020, Anthony Fauci was asked what percentage of the nation would need to be immunized with a Covid-19 vaccine in order to put this pandemic behind us. He said 70 percent. In December 2020 he was asked the same question. This time he said 85 to 90 percent. Fauci admitted the disparity between his first and second answers was based on polling data, not medical science, but he was unapologetic. He claimed that until public opinion polls indicated Americans could accept a higher vaccination threshold, he simply wasn’t comfortable saying it out loud.
Then, on September 27, 2021, Joe Biden was asked the same question: What percentage of Americans would need to be fully vaxxed in order to put this pandemic behind us. Biden’s answer: 97 or 98 percent! 
Where did this figure come from, and why was it now so much higher than what Fauci had told us previously? What science was this based on?
These are valid questions for which the administration offers no valid answers. That’s because the Biden Administration’s latest position has nothing to do with either polling data or medical science. It has to do with a cover-up. Evidence is accumulating on a weekly basis of widespread damage to health from all three authorized Covid-19 vaccines. Fauci and his colleagues no doubt are desperate to bury this evidence.
The best way to bury the evidence is to eliminate what in medical research terms is called the control group.
That is where the 97 to 98 percent figure comes from. Our nation’s highest paid government official likely wants to make it extremely difficult for future researchers to find anyone who did not take a Covid-19 vaccine.
Part I - Protecting the Herd from the Truth
Pick Your Poison
All three authorized Covid-19 vaccines – Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson – are causing severe side effects, including death, in numbers unrivaled by any widely administered vaccine or drug in our nation’s history. According to the CDC’s own Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), as of October 1, 2021, 16,310 suspected deaths from Covid-19 vaccination were reported to the CDC. This number is higher than the cumulative number of deaths reported to VAERS since 1990 from all other vaccines combined.
Europe uses the same Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines, as well as an Astra-Zeneca vaccine similar to our Johnson & Johnson. Their recorded adverse events are even higher. The European Union system for reporting adverse reactions to vaccines, called EudraVigilance, has logged 24,526 suspected fatalities so far from the Covid-19 vaccines. 
Fatal events recorded in both VAERS and EudraVigilance include heart attack, stroke, blood clots, seizures, thrombocytopenia (low blood platelet count), anaphylaxis (allergic reaction), myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle), and pericarditis (inflammation of thin membrane surrounding the heart).
In addition to deaths, both VAERS and EudraVigilance have logged hundreds of thousands of serious, non-fatal injuries from the Covid-19 vaccines. Many of these injuries do not appear to be resolving on their own, and neither doctors nor vaccine makers have answers for injured patients seeking help. Therefore, these conditions could become chronic.
Clearly, something is terribly wrong.
For perspective, the U.S. government suspended a swine flu vaccination campaign in December 1976 after that vaccine was linked to 94 cases of serious illness and four deaths.
Even as I write this article, news is breaking that government officials in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland have halted the use of the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine in people under 30 due to the risk of heart damage. Iceland has suspended the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine for all age groups, also because of the heart risks.  Officials in Ontario, Canada, have not yet issued an outright ban on the Moderna vaccine but are recommending against its use in young people.
This means that one of three vaccines from which Americans currently are being forced to choose in order to keep their jobs or continue their education has just been deemed too dangerous for all or portions of the populations of numerous other western countries.
It must be noted here that, although we don’t know their exact formulas since the companies are not required to publish them, officials had assured us previously that there was little difference between the Pfizer and Moderna Covid vaccines, other than dosing. They are classic “me-too” drugs, where one company patents a profitable product, then another company makes a slight alteration to that same product so that it, too, can enter the market and cash in. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines work the same way. Both have been shown to cause heart damage. In addition, the damage is not limited to young people. It is merely more obvious in young people, for whom such heart problems are otherwise uncommon. Furthermore, the heart risks are just one of many significant risks that are showing up with these vaccines.
Thus, decisions to halt the Moderna but not the Pfizer vaccine, or to give the Moderna vaccine only to older people, seem arbitrary on their face.
However, if you’re a career politician or government bureaucrat whose agenda has nothing to do with protecting health, the best option is not to halt the program. It’s to get rid of the evidence. That evidence currently is best-preserved in those who remain unvaccinated.
If It Ain’t Broke…
Among the still-unvaxxed are many young, healthy people, including children. For them, the virus continues to pose little threat, despite the best efforts of the media and the government to convince us otherwise. In the past year, 66,000 hospitalized children and teens in the U.S. have had a positive Covid-19 test. This does not mean they were all sick with Covid, only that at some point during their hospital stay they tested positive for the virus. In a comprehensive study of hospitalized youths who had a positive Covid test, the CDC reported that the average length of stay was two to three days. Most children required no oxygen support prior to their discharge.
Sadly, child death in the U.S. is not rare. The top six causes of death for children are car crashes, suicide, homicide, cancer, drowning and birth defects. Since the start of the pandemic, more than 58,000 children from birth to age 17 have died from all causes. Of these, the CDC reports that 499 (0.86 percent) had a positive Covid-19 test at the time of death.  Again, this does not mean they all died of Covid. Dr. Marty Makary, a physician and medical school professor at Johns Hopkins University, led a team of researchers in May 2021 who looked at Covid-19 in pediatric patients and found that 100 percent of deaths occurred in children with one or more pre-existing conditions.
Makary said, based on this data, he saw no compelling case for vaccinating either healthy or Covid-recovered children under 12, who are unlikely to derive any benefit from the vaccine but will be fully exposed to the risks.
Looking beyond the U.S., Covid-19 does not qualify, by any stretch of the term, as a pandemic for children. Here are some examples: (correction: pop. of Canada is 38 million)
In fact, Covid-related child deaths are so rare throughout the western world that they make our slightly higher number here in the U.S. seem suspect. Particularly confusing are sporadic reports beginning this past summer of Covid-19 deaths in otherwise-healthy young people. Some of these cases have not followed the traditional Covid-19 trajectory; rather, death has occurred quite suddenly with little warning.   Although such deaths involving unvaccinated youths have tended to make national headlines, the fully vaccinated have been afflicted as well.  
Understandably these headlines cause alarm for parents. They also invite questions. Were these patients correctly diagnosed? Did doctors see a positive result on their PCR test, which is overly sensitive at high thresholds, and stop testing? Perhaps most importantly, are young people who are diagnosed with Covid-19 being offered any outpatient treatment for the virus? With widespread use – rather than suppression – of what are now well-established, highly effective early treatments, even many older adults with comorbidities experience this virus as nothing more than a mild flu.      
Each of these unusual fatalities merits a full investigation and autopsy. Without that, all we can say for certain is that whatever the true cause of death, serious illness and death from Covid-19 in children remains rare.
Yet, here was Biden in September, saying we now need 97 or 98 percent – almost everybody, including infants and toddlers – to be vaccinated with these dangerous products, regardless of prior infection and regardless of youth, health status, or availability of effective treatments.
Fauci’s Secret Playbook
The most likely explanation is, Biden got this new number from Fauci. It was derived from what looks like years of collusion between Fauci and his colleagues in government and the pharmaceutical industry to eliminate the control group in the childhood immunization program by maximizing vaccine uptake in children.
They accomplish this goal, first, by greatly exaggerating the dangers of viruses that normally pose little threat to otherwise healthy, well-nourished children (e.g., measles, mumps, chicken pox). Second, they deny, deny, deny all adverse reactions from the childhood vaccines and label anyone who complains about vaccine injuries as “anti-vax.” Third, they strong-arm parents to comply with the CDC’s vaccine schedule by making full vaccination a condition of public-school attendance. Finally, they lobby state legislatures to eliminate all exemptions.
Nationwide, at least 94 percent of school-age children are “fully vaccinated” against measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio and chicken pox.   Measles has been declared eliminated in the United States for almost 20 years. (Measles deaths in the U.S. had been nearly eliminated before the measles vaccine was introduced, but that’s a story for another day.) The number of polio cases has been in the single digits annually since 1982, with zero deaths. Mumps and rubella have averaged between zero and two deaths annually for decades. Chicken pox has been the primary cause of death for a total of four children in the U.S. since 2005.
The disease burden from rubella, diphtheria and tetanus for children in the U.S. likewise ranges from very low to non-existent.   Even deaths from pertussis (i.e., whooping cough) have not exceeded 20 annually since 2012.   This is particularly noteworthy since the pertussis vaccine is “leaky” like the Covid vaccines and does not prevent infection or transmission.
By contrast, more than 24,000 children and 78,000 teenagers have died in car crashes on U.S. roads since 2000.   Millions have been seriously injured. While the annual number has declined, crashes remain the leading cause of death for school-age children in the U.S., and a leading cause of long-term disability from traumatic brain injury for all age groups.  The U.S. government has sponsored no major highway safety initiatives to reduce motor vehicle deaths and injuries in the past two decades.
Meanwhile, despite America’s vaccine compliance success story, public health officials have grown increasingly hostile toward childhood vaccine holdouts. They’ve spent considerable energy in recent years working hand in glove with the vaccine makers and the medical establishment to vilify “anti-vaxxers” and eliminate the remaining vaccine exemptions for children who attend public school.
Apparently, 94 percent herd immunity is not enough. Public health officials want the number of “fully vaccinated” children to be even higher.
What they really seem to want is to thwart researchers who are interested in comparing health and developmental outcomes in vaccinated versus unvaccinated children. They do this, quite effectively, by making it extremely difficult for researchers to find unvaccinated children. With 94 percent or better vaccine compliance, locating unvaccinated children for a sizeable control group generally requires access to large databases such as those maintained by insurance companies and the government. Since every official placed in charge of those databases must first agree to support the cover-up, good luck gaining access.
Hiding the Healthy
In fact, parents of autistic children have been lobbying the federal government for decades for a large study comparing health and developmental outcomes in vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children. Thanks, no doubt, to Fauci and Friends, such a study has never been conducted, even while the CDC and FDA continue to boast that the childhood vaccines are perfectly safe and don’t cause autism or any other serious health problems.
With no access to data for conducting large-scale vaxxed vs. unvaxxed studies, a few independent researchers have managed to locate just enough unvaxxed children for small studies. The results of those studies are alarming. One such study found that children who were up to date with their vaccines were significantly more likely than their unvaccinated peers to be diagnosed with severe allergies, autism, gastrointestinal disorders, asthma, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and chronic ear infections. 
Another study found that vaccinated school-age children were less likely than their unvaccinated counterparts to contract chickenpox and whooping cough, but more likely to be diagnosed with pneumonia, ear infections, allergies and neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism and ADHD. The risk of neurodevelopmental disorders in vaccinated children who had been born prematurely was found to be especially pronounced. These children were 6.6 times more likely than their unvaccinated peers to be diagnosed with these chronic, debilitating conditions.
A third study, published this past summer, found zero cases of ADHD among unvaccinated children, compared to 5.3 percent in the vaccinated. That study was retracted. The retraction describes not a single problem with the actual methodology, nor error in the data. The editors appear essentially to admit that they were bullied by unnamed groups or individuals into retracting the study and simply didn’t want to deal with it.
The results of these small studies seem to have created a growing sense of urgency for Fauci and Friends. Public health officials increasingly appear to be colluding on a daily basis with the media and tech giants to silence parents who question the safety of the childhood vaccine program. Meanwhile, these same officials work overtime behind the scenes to prevent further publication of damaging studies and eliminate the few remaining exemptions for children.
Now the CDC appears to be following the exact same playbook with the Covid-19 vaccines, only this time the agency has ensnared adults as well as children: First, exaggerate the dangers of the virus for everyone, including healthy young adults and children. Second, deny, deny, deny the adverse effects of the vaccines and label those who question their safety as “anti-vax.” Third, strong-arm the public into taking a vaccine by making it a condition of employment and education. Finally, work to eliminate all exemptions.
In fact, as the devastation wrought by these vaccines becomes more widely recognized, we should not be surprised to hear Fauci say he’s changed his mind once again and that we now need 100 percent compliance with the Covid-19 vaccines in order to put this pandemic behind us.
Each increasingly unhinged vaccine mandate must be viewed for what it is: A desperate attempt by public health officials to eliminate the Covid-19 vaccine control group.
Whether they succeed in this diabolical scheme is going to be up to us.
