This morning, I received the following email from a kind reader in Slovenia (I've partially edited it for brevity):
first of all thanks once again for writing such amazing articles on the Covid issue.
Here in Slovenia there was recently a show on our national TV network called “Experts answer public concerns about covid-19 vaccine safety.” The first question asked if the vaccines have been tested enough and if they went through all three clinical phases of testing (here they mostly use the AstraZeneca vaccine because it is the cheapest, but also Pfizer and Moderna).
The experts' answers were:
Expert 1: Yes, in our country we use only vaccines that were approved by EMA and for approval all three phases of testing are necessary.
Expert 2: Vaccines went through all three clinical phases, they met all standards, necessary for testing safety and efficiency, and went also through clinical studies done on animals.
Expert 3: However, the third, longest phase, is still ongoing and the manufacturers are obliged to follow the vaccinated for the next two years.
These answers seem a bit contradictory - the first two say they went through all phases, while the third one says phase 3 is still ongoing. And if I remember correctly, phase 2 was even skipped in some cases. So if you find some spare time, I would be glad to hear your thoughts on how their answers match reality.
J's email demonstrates just how pervasive the COVID-19 vaccine propaganda campaign really is. Slovenia, a proud and small country of only 2 million people, is being subject to the same egregious lies as the residents of far larger and hence more lucrative markets. This indicates there are other agendas aside from financial gain at play, but let's leave that discussion for another day. My goal in this article is to give J and anyone else more than enough ammunition to rebut the incessant claims that COVID-19 vaccines have been Thoroughly Tested!™ and proven Safe and Effective!™
So here is my response:
first of all, thanks for the kind words, I'm glad you're finding my COVID articles helpful.
Regarding the 'experts' that appeared on Slovenian TV, we have similar propaganda efforts running in Australia. The Commonwealth Serum Laboratories (CSL) here signed a $1.7 billion contract to manufacture 50 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine. This has been a point of pride for our abhorrent government, which is presiding over a struggling economy relying almost entirely on the mining industry and a continued housing bubble. Therefore, the sleazy degenerates that run Australia are going to defend these vaccines come hell or high water, even after the AstraZeneca vaccine sent our Federal Health Minister off to the emergency ward (interestingly, he's been uncharacteristically camera shy since his reported release from hospital almost 2 weeks ago).
So determined are Australian authorities to brainwash people into taking these dangerous vaccines, that doctors, nurses and pharmacists "who spread COVID anti-vaccination claims" will now face harsh penalties, including being stripped of their ability to practise!
Confirming that freedom of speech and inconvenient facts are not welcome in Australia (They Should Go Back to Where They Came From!™), spokesman for the medical boards and Pharmacy Board chairman Brett Simmonds said “There is no place for anti-vaccination messages in professional health practice, and any promotion of anti-vaccination claims including on social media."
That's right, there is no place in Australia for health professionals who place the interests of their patients above those of the corrupt government and its criminal buddies at AstraZeneca and Pfizer!
Everything George Orwell predicted in 1984 is now coming true...
By the way, AstraZeneca Australia's Government Affairs Director is Kieran Schneemann who, during the period from 1996 to 2006, held a number of Chief of Staff roles to cabinet ministers in the Australian Federal Government.
I imagine he made some immensely useful contacts in that time...
Of course, it's not just Slovenia and Australia where this kind of behaviour is taking place.
All around the world, dishonest politicians, Pharma-friendly health regulators, irresponsible scientists, and of course the treasonous mainstream media are running a relentless and sustained campaign to convince us the new and poorly tested vaccines have been Thoroughly Tested!™ and proven Safe and Effective!™
In response to alarming rates of adverse event reports for these Brave New World drugs, they've been forced to add an extra PR bromide:
The Vaccines' Benefits Outweigh the Risks!™
So let's have a look at the claims made by these Slovenian 'experts', which are being parroted by countless other charlatans around the world. I'll provide plenty of links to the original ClinicalTrials.gov trial descriptions and other resources to prove they are lying through their teeth.
Let's start with "Expert 1" who claimed:
"Yes, in our country we use only vaccines that were approved by EMA ..." (the Australian Government says the same thing about the "independent" Therapeutic Goods Administration, which is in fact an intensely pro-pharma Government agency that receives 96% of its funding from industry).
Like the US CDC (100% industry funding), the UK MHRA (100%), and the Australian TGA (96%), the EMA (European Medicines Agency) is funded by drug companies. The EMA relies on the drug industry for 86% of its funding. Like other regulatory agencies, not only does it charge hefty approval fees for a new drug, but it also charges annual licensing fees once a drug is approved. It therefore has a strong incentive to approve drugs and then allow them to remain on the market even when troubling side effect data emerges.
Like other regulatory agencies, the EMA is marred by the infamous "revolving door" phenomenon in which employees come from or leave to work in the pharmaceutical industry. To quote Vinay Prasad, who co-authored a BMJ review on this phenomenon among FDA employees:
"When your No. 1, major employer after you leave your job is sitting across the table from you, you're not going to be a hard-ass when you regulate. That's just human nature."
The EMA also recently blatantly lied about the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine when it claimed it had "proven efficacy" in reducing deaths and hospitalization. The vaccine has not been shown to do this - in fact, the only double-blind clinical trial data released so far for the drug shows it wasn't even effective in preventing mild-moderate COVID infection!
The EMA, therefore, is simply not a trustworthy entity.
"Expert 1" goes on to state: "...and for approval all three phases of testing are necessary."
Yes, under normal circumstances, all three phases are necessary. But they have not been completed for any of the three COVID drugs in question: Oxford-AstraZeneca, Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna.
All the aforementioned were given "emergency use authorization" based on only the first two months of data from clinical trials that are scheduled to run for at least 14 months, and in some cases for over three years!
This is unprecedented - and incredibly stupid.
The scheduled completion dates for these trials are listed below. You'll note that some have differing Primary Outcome and Study Completion dates - it is the latter that matters most in terms of safety analysis.
The trial that was used to give the Pfizer-BioNTEch mRNA 'vaccine' emergency approval kicked off on April 29, 2020. It has an Estimated Primary Completion Date of August 3, 2021. The Estimated Study Completion Date is January 31, 2023. See: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04368728
The trial that was used to gain approval for the Moderna mRNA 'vaccine' began on July 27, 2020. The Estimated Primary and Study Completion Date is October 27, 2022. See: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04470427
The Oxford-AstraZeneca trials are a real jumbled mess. This vaccine was approved based on an "interim analysis" of only three of its many ongoing trial arms: Two in the UK and one in Brazil. That interim analysis was published in the Lancet on December 8, 2020.
The three aforementioned trial arms are single-blinded, not double-blind, meaning the AstraZeneca/Oxford University/Vaccitech researchers know who is getting the drug and who is getting the control treatment.
These three trial arms are:
COV001: A single-blind phase 1/2 clinical trial in five sites in the UK, which began on April 23, 2020. Estimated Primary and Study Completion Date is October 2021. See:
COV002: A single-blind phase 2/3 study in the UK that began on May 28, 2020. Estimated Primary Completion and Study Completion Date is September 2021.
COV003: A single-blind phase 3 study in Brazil that began on June 2, 2020. Estimated Primary Completion and Study Completion Date is September 2021.
There are also double-blind trials for the AstraZeneca drug being conducted at 122 centres in the US, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru and France. These began on August 28, 2020, have an Estimated Primary Completion Date of March 16, 2021 and Estimated Study Completion Date of February 14, 2023. See:
In Japan, there is a Phase 1/2 double-blind multicentre trial of the drug that started August 23, 2020. It has an Estimated Primary Completion and Study Completion Date of November 15, 2021. See:
But while AstraZeneca rushed to release an "interim analysis" of its non-blinded UK and Brazil trials, we haven't yet heard boo in the published literature about these numerous double-blind trials.
The results from its South African arm, the first double-blind results to be made public, might provide a clue. That Phase 1/2, double-blinded, saline placebo-controlled trial kicked off on June 24, 2020. It had an Estimated Primary Completion Date of December 2020 and an Estimated Study Completion Date of December 2021. See: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04444674?term=ChAdOx1&draw=2&rank=2
Despite an earlier Primary Completion date than the UK and Brazil arms, the results for the South African arm were not published until March 16, 2021. In that analysis, the median duration of follow-up from enrollment and from 14 days after the second dose of vaccine/placebo was 156 and 121 days, respectively.
Those results showed that when researchers remained unaware of who was getting the drug and who was getting the placebo, the vaccine was not effective in preventing COVID-19 infection.
More Blatant Bollocks
Now let's move on to Slovenian "Expert 2," who claimed "Vaccines went through all three clinical phases, they met all standards, necessary for testing safety and efficiency, and went also through clinical studies done on animals."
Well, as we have just seen, that is a blatant lie. They have not been through all three clinical phases, in fact the AstraZeneca drug is still going through Phase 1/2 trials!
Again, this is unprecedented - allowing a drug to market before its Phase 1 and 2 trials have even been completed!
To claim these drugs have "met all standards, necessary for testing safety and efficiency" when that testing is nowhere near complete is to evince either outrageous dishonesty or monumental stupidity.
Regarding animal testing, even mainstream propaganda outfit Associated Press acknowledges "Pfizer and Moderna were given approval to simultaneously test their vaccines on animals while they were conducting Phase 1 trials on humans. The vaccines were tested on mice and macaques ... 'They overlapped preclinical studies with the early phases of the trials.'" (Bold emphasis added)
In other words, the drug manufacturers began human trials while still testing the drugs on animals!
And they began Phase 3 trials despite not yet having finished Phase 1 and 2 trials!
In fact, AstraZeneca is still conducting Phase 1/2 trials alongside its non-blinded Phase 3 trials!
Moderna, meanwhile, never even bothered with Phase 2 trials, it went straight from Phase 1 to 3!
The whole thing is an utter farce, a monumental rush job that absolutely screams recklessness and negligence. Modesty forbids me from stating what I truly think should be done to all the repugnant characters who claim with a straight face these new junk 'vaccines' have been Thoroughly Tested!™ and proven Safe and Effective!™
"Expert 3" says "However, the third, longest phase, is still ongoing and the manufacturers are obliged to follow the vaccinated for the next two years."
So while "Expert 2" claims the drugs have "met all standards, necessary for testing safety and efficiency," we have "Expert 3" admitting Phase 3 studies - the successful completion of which is normally essential before a drug is approved - are "still ongoing." He/she is also admitting this is an experiment in progress when he/she states "the manufacturers are obliged to follow the vaccinated for the next two years."
And how many millions of people will have been injured by then, and how many tens (if not hundreds) of thousands will be dead as a result of these dangerous and poorly tested drugs? Given the large number of adverse event reports that have already accumulated for these drugs on the MeDRA, VAERS and EudraVigilance databases, the likely answer is looking pretty grim.
From December 14, 2020 through March 22, 2021, the US VAERS database has received 2,216 reports of death among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine. This was from 126 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines administered in that time.
During the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 US flu seasons, an estimated 165 million people in the US received the influenza vaccines during each of those seasons. Yet the total number of deaths reported for the multitude of influenza vaccines during each of those seasons was only 22 and 17, respectively.
So despite a lower number of recipients and a far shorter reporting time frame, the Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccines have already triggered up to a 101-fold greater volume of death reports than regular influenza vaccines!
Remember, these are the same COVID-19 drugs that authorities keep emphatically insisting are Safe and Effective!™
On the UK MeDRA database, 78,223 adverse event reports have been logged for the AstraZeneca vaccine between January 4, 2021 and March 14, 2021. This figure is comprised of 294,820 adverse reactions and 326 deaths.
For the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, 38,084 events comprised of 108,649 reactions and 259 deaths have been received.
This gives a UK total of 116,307 adverse event reports and 585 deaths reported for the two COVID-19 vaccines being used there.
And continental Europe? As the graph below shows, the most widely used COVID vaccine in Europe is by far the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, followed by the AstraZeneca drug in distant second, and the Moderna product in remote third spot.
As of March 20, 2021, EudraVigilance* has recorded 111,508 adverse event cases and a staggering 2,906 fatality reports for the Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA drug. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was approved for use in the EU on December 21, 2020.
EudraVigilance has recorded 80,642 adverse event cases and 592 fatality reports for the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. The AstraZeneca vaccine was approved for use in the EU on January 29, 2021.
The Moderna mRNA drug was the second COVID vaccine to be approved in the EU, on January 6, 2020. For a drug that has only triggered 7,030 EudraVigilance adverse event cases, it sure punches above its weight in racking up the fatality reports; as of March 20, the drug has accumulated 1,076 fatality reports.
If you get the Moderna vaccine and start feeling sick, be worried. Very worried.
So just between the Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna COVID-19 drugs, the EudraVigilance database has recorded 4,574 fatality reports. This is quite sobering when you consider how recently these drugs came into use.
It must also be emphasized that only a small portion of adverse vaccine events are ever reported to official databases. Therefore, the true incidence of adverse events is likely to be much greater than the official figures.
It is also quite sobering to remember that, as of this writing, there exists no quality evidence whatsoever (i.e. the kind derived from double-blind, placebo-controlled trials conducted by non-criminal entities) to show that any of these so-called vaccines can save even a single life.
I respectfully submit that anyone who still claims these drugs have been Thoroughly Tested!™ and proven Safe and Effective!™ is completely, utterly and hopelessly full of shit.
