  1. Remember these simple facts
    1.covid is a gain of function manufactured illness, it’s designed to damage humanity.
    2. The vaccine has never claimed to stop you contracting covid and all its potential long term problems.
    3. It only claims to make the initial illness less severe.
    4. And that it has a limited effective life.

    For me two questions
    1.Do I intervene and get vaccine, accept the risk exposure and in doing so.
    2. Wait and get illness and develop natural immunity (always considered better)

  2. Nobody knows the true adverse events because the hospitals are being coerced into suppressing the information. I know of 2 deaths caused BY the jab. And a 13 year old who collapsed right after it and they told her they don't know what dosage to give kids so they gave her an adult one, she's tired ever since. A guy in mid 20's with heart problems after j&j. Another with a headache since 2nd shot in April. And many more, and i dont work in healthcare so wtf are the hospitals seeing. And it's all early days! And the most jabbed countries have the highest covid hospitalizations! It's poison and you would have to be crazy to trust big pharma who have been poisoning people for years.

  3. Why risk the possible side effects of a vaccine when there are effective treatments available? The world was conned into going along with this experiment. Scientists have attempted to get these mRNA products approved for use on the public for years. They finally got it. There are really good, and cheap treatments available for respiratory viral illnesses. Of course, they are suppressed so that the injections can get emergency authorization for release. The information on these treatments are suppressed, and availability of the drugs are suppressed, so that money can be made on annual flu vaccines. Anything that is for profit, should not be mandated. I personally think the pharmaceutical companies are wealthy enough not to have to resort to mandating that everyone in the entire world take their products into their body.

  4. Yes the 40 year outlook, you will not know definitively for 40 years…. BUT…. You could make a much more reasonable extrapolation of risk, even after 5 or 10 years, as to what the actual 40 year risk might look like!

  5. mRNA is not vaccine tech. It's gene 'therapy', someone like Lex should be more accurate with terminology. IF it doesn't stop transmission or infection but only lessens symptoms IT's NOT A VACCINE.

  6. Interesting listening to this now that so many blood clotting issues are now occurring. He said that they tried to mitigate the spike causing fusing of the cells….but what if, just maybe..they didnt? 🤷‍♀️. There's the hesitancy for me.

    Great Great unbiased conversation 👌

    Much appreciated 🙏

  7. Well if your 75 taking the vaccine makes sense. Unfortunately they wont be around long enough to study the long term effects, its the children that they want to take it. Then they will get their long term data.

    Im 47 im not taking it but it becomes much more of an issue when parents are telling their children to take it. You are basically offering up your child to the high priests on the bloody offering table to sacrifice to the gods. The whole thing stinks of corruption, money and egotistical freaks trying to get their name in the text books.

  8. If it's only in your arm for days then how does it work long term? Clearly it has an effect on your body that lasts for months or even longer. Whatever that effect is could be harmful. Remember every medicine that ended up being harmful was thought safe at first.
