CDC changes definition of vaccine

It intriguing how the CDC changed their definition of terms in the last week or so from:

“Vaccine: A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease” (per the wayback machine) to

“Vaccine: A preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases.” (per the web site earlier today).

I am really curious about the timing of why at this specific time, did the CDC decide that the definition of vaccine needed to be changed.
To me it says: they are seeing more trouble with the vaccines than they are saying publicly and don’t want to be held to the old definition of what a vaccine is vs a therapeutic. It doesn’t matter from a usage standpoint, but it does from an accountability standpoint.

Why the so-called experts should be taken with a bag of salt.

Looking to blame one person is completely irresponsible.  The experts have said multiple things at multiple times and each time do you think they were lying to everyone in the country while telling the President the opposite?

Since the end of February, despite the so-called experts advocating otherwise, we have been wearing masks and told others to do so. They only admitted in April that mask should be worn, and then in November 2020 that masks protect you, not just other people.

Remember their famous statements.

– We need to remember that the “health and medical professionals” told us for months that masks didn’t help?  Later we found out the they did it to conserve PPE for other people?  (TheHill: “[Fauci] also acknowledged that masks were initially not recommended to the general public so that first responders wouldn’t feel the strain of a shortage of PPE. [Fauci] explained that public health experts “were concerned the public health community, and many people were saying this, were concerned that it was at a time when personal protective equipment, including the N95 masks and the surgical masks, were in very short supply.”)

– We need to remember that Congressional Democrats called him xenophobic and racist for instituting a travel ban?  If anything, it should’ve been a complete travel ban at the end of January with mandatory 2 week quarantine coming from anywhere.

– We need to remember that on February 24, 2020 San Francisco Nancy Pelosi encouraged people to go out. ” this fear is – I think – unwarranted in light of the precautions that are being taken here in the United States.”

– We need to remember that in NYC on March 11, 2020, de Blasio said “If you’re not sick, you should be going about your life.”  Earlier NYC officials had also encouraged mingling.

– We need to remember that Fauci told us on January 26, 2020: to John Catsimatidis, a syndicated radio host in New York. “What can you tell the American people about what’s been going on?” Catsimatidis asked. “Should they be scared?”

“I don’t think so,” Fauci said. “The American people should not be worried or frightened by this. It’s a very, very low risk to the United States, but it’s something we, as public health officials, need to take very seriously.”

– We need to remember that Fauci told us “DR. FAUCI: Right. Well, first of all, MARGARET, that one year timeline would be the world’s indoor record of ever getting a vaccine out, at least to be able to early deploy. You can’t do any better than that. If you go any faster, you’ll be cutting dangerous corners.”


-It wasn’t until November 2020 that the CDC finally acknowledged masks protect you, not just others.

Trump, covid, Reagan and the left “hoping he dies”

At 2:27pm on Monday, March 30, 1981 President Reagan was shot. I was a child at the time and when I got out of schoolat 3:13pm, headed to swim practice. When I got there, I heard the coaches say that he’d been shot and was in surgery and no one knew how he was. Most of the people were upset and in shock.

Something that I still remember from that day was that one of the older kids said, “I hope he dies.” I couldn’t believe that the left wanted someone to die like that. What was a high school age kid doing thinking that and saying it like it wasn’t the unmitigated evil that it was? What were the parents teaching this kid?

Well, all over the left again this morning, we are seeing “I hope Trump dies.”

The “compassionate, civil, civilized and caring left” hoping someone dies.

What is wrong with these people?

CDC says it erroneously posted guidance that said coronavirus spreads through air and and travel beyond six feet

How can you possible post that in error? This isn’t some little typo, this is a full, written guidance. It is more likely the “erroneously posted the truth.”

CNBC: CDC says it erroneously posted guidance that said coronavirus spreads through air and and travel beyond six feet

Vaccine now, don’t wait.

President Trump should order the FDA, CDC etc to begin administering any vaccines in production one month after Phase 3 trials begin to anyone who wishes to receive them. It would be breaking the rules, but I hope that Trump would consider ordering the CDC/FDA etc to allow the vaccines that are currently in Phase 3 trials to be administered prior to the completion of the trial, but after the first month when (IF) the trials shows they are safe during the first month.  e.g. one month after the first phase of the 3rd trial, let people who want it, get it since they’ve already ordered tons of doses and they are manufacturing them now.  There is really no downside since it would’ve been safely administered in phase 1, 2, and 3.  I am sure there would be pushback from the bureaucracies, but it would be a smart thing to do even if it doesn’t fit the CDC/FDA etc. rules which were written for non-pandemic times.  I am sure plenty of people would use such a move to attempt to hurt him for the election, but if the science said it was safe, it would make the political objections obvious.  Most importantly it would help everyone if it was effective.

Fauci: Public health officials lied about masks

Interesting, now Fauci is admitting that that public health officials lied about the effectiveness of masks to preserve supplies for first responders. Of course anyone with any common sense knew they were lying about it earlier this year. Of course, anyone with any common sense knew they were lying about it earlier this year.

TheHill: “[Fauci] also acknowledged that masks were initially not recommended to the general public so that first responders wouldn’t feel the strain of a shortage of PPE. [Fauci] explained that public health experts “were concerned the public health
community, and many people were saying this, were concerned that it was at a time when personal protective equipment, including the N95 masks and the surgical masks, were in very short supply.”

The CDC, WHO, and “officials” have been lying from the start.  It is just nice (well, maybe not nice, but validating) to hear Fauci say what everyone with above a room temp IQ knew when the surgeon general and all the health officials were saying (among other things), “masks aren’t effective” and then 6-8 weeks later say they are.  It wasn’t a question of new data, it was a question of self-serving lying by public officials which undoubtedly cost people their lives.

So, in short, “Fauci lied, people died.”

One wonders how much they were they also lying about in the Coronavirus Task Force meetings to the VP, President etc?

Who orchestrated this lie? Will there be hearings?

Why did the CDC and others lie about it? Why politicize it by lying?

Fauci – inconvenient from a societal standpoint, from an economic standpoint

If you look at our history, we’ve been through some terrible ordeals. This is tough. People are suffering. People are dying. It’s inconvenient from a societal standpoint, from an economic standpoint to go through this, but this is going to be the answer to our problems.

April 1, 2020

So economic devastation, food insecurity and depression is merely “inconvenient”.

Got it.

Democrat party operative advocates politicizing covid

As he did with the 2008 crisis, former Democrat Congressman and Obama Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel says: “Let’s make sure this crisis doesn’t go to waste”:

“Never allow a good crisis go to waste. It’s an opportunity to do the things you once thought were impossible.”

… All of this is to say, again, that Washington needs to make sure this crisis doesn’t go to waste. 

( https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/03/25/lets-make-sure-this-crisis-doesnt-go-waste/ )

Later this year and next year, one must remember that again, Democrat Party operatives are advocating the politicization of the coronavirus “to do the things you once thought were impossible.”

Instead of advocating working together, the Democrat Party views this as a political opportunity. As a way to limit freedom and increase government control.

Later when you hear the charge that the Republican party was the one who politicized the virus and science remember that the WaPo, the oligarch who owns the Washington Post, Democrat operatives, Fauci, and the rest of the Washington insiders advocated to ignore the science and politicize the virus. No one in official Washington has condemned the politicization of science nor stated that we should work together. Instead, they too view this is an opportunity, not something to be fixed.

Beware the people trying to add more to government spending that is related to the virus, they are looters, just on a larger scale than those looting stores.

Slowing the spread, Flattening the curve, not stopping the spread of covid-19/coronavirus

Today’s announcement about the 15 days to slow the spread is important. Note that this is NOT about stopping the spread. That ship sailed at the end of December 2019 or early January 2020 once it escaped (or was allowed to escape) from China.

Everyone (or some large percentage of a population) is going to get this at some point until there is herd immunity (60-70% of the population as a start) or a vaccine. The goal is to stop a short-term spike, not stop people from getting it.

Of course the same people from the WHO back in January who were saying it wasn’t being transmitted person-to-person are now advising the US government. The same people from NIH/CDC who were saying back in February that it didn’t pose a significant risk to the US population are advising them too. Ditto the same people saying masks don’t help, UNLESS you are a first responder.

If the closures were required in March [edit: and now April], what exactly will have changed by May, June or even September – no vaccine, no herd immunity, no double blind studies showing the efficacy of a treatment etc.   Perhaps widespread fast and accurate testing will allow people out, but so far the testing accuracy has been lacking.

Continuing it longer than 15 or 30 days will make no difference long term unless it continues for 12-24 months without testing and then quarantining people who test positive . Shutting everything down for 1 or 2 years is tantamount to suicide for the country and the world.

Some huge portion of the world population will get it eventually unless there is a vaccine. It is just a question of when.
