LUMPENPROLETARIAT—[Thursday, 4 MAR 2021] According to Wiktionary, we have the following definition for the word, vaccinate: “Treat with a vaccine to produce immunity against a disease.” So, by definition: no immunity means it’s not a vaccine.
The key concept for us, with regard to the notion of vaccines and COVID-19 is immunity. A vaccine, as we have known them, is expected to provide immunity, if it is said to vaccinate. That is to say: To vaccinate is to immunize, not simply to mitigate.
When we were all given vaccines against polio and other formerly problematic diseases as children, we were vaccinated against horrible diseases, which we hadn’t been able to control, such as smallpox or polio. But we’ve virtually eradicated those diseases because of the medical accomplishments of vaccines, real vaccines. As far as we know, the flu shot was never called a flu vaccine anywhere. We remember seeing drug dealers selling flu shots everywhere.
One time, I stopped and actually debated a flu shot drug pusher. It was at a Kaiser hospital, as I was leaving the hospital after accompanying a family member. I asked the drug seller, if it was free. She said it would depend on my health insurance. I couldn’t help laughing because the notion of injecting myself with bits of flu virus as some sort of inoculation against the potential strands, or variants, of flu virus, which are anticipated to be floating around seemed absurd. Why would I want to inject myself with viruses? To ward off a potential flu? I have never been scared of the flu before. Why start now?
So, my spouse and I never bought into the seasonal flu shot sales pitch. Yes, we have vaccinated our kids. But we never saw the flu shot as a “vaccine”, like the polio vaccine.
But, it seems the preceding years, in which America and other nations have acclimated themselves to thinking of flu shots as “vaccines”, in scare quotes, that it has set us up for thinking of anti-COVID-19 drugs as vaccines. But they are not. As noted above, vaccines produce immunity. With the anti-COVID-19 drugs being pushed by Mr. Fauci, there will be no guarantee of immunity. There will also be ongoing variants, which will need further “vaccinations”, i.e., seasonal covid shots. It seems like a losing strategy for health outcomes, but a jackpot for drug dealers.
And, then, we have all the risks associated with the mRNA drugs, which are designed to alter your DNA. Talk about risky, and unnecessary, especially, if we consider the fact that comorbidities are crucial in all of this, but are being ignored. Meanwhile, other drugs, like Russia’s Sputnik drug does not alter DNA, but appears equally effective. We keep hearing Dr. Gary Null on Pacifica Radio present reports of harmful side-effects and even deaths due to the anti-COVID-19 drugs. Perhaps, some of his reports are anecdotal; but we must be able to see debate and to see public concerns exposed, amplified, and then refuted or corroborated, not just swept under the rug. The same thing goes for all of the doctors, who dissented early on, including Dr. Bukacek, who questioned the COVID-19 statistics. We also have other complaints by doctors. As we journalled yesterday, Dr. Gary Null interviewed a doctor and expert with a background in law, who reported that doctors are accusing Dr. Fauci and his associates of fraud, for using the PCR test, which, the doctors explained, was never meant to be a diagnostic test, much less to test for COVID-19.
When we are dealing with the category of coronaviruses, we are dealing with respiratory diseases. People, who are most susceptible tend to have compromised immune systems and/or compromised respiratory systems. This is what has prevented the discovery of a flu vaccine. And this is also what is likely to prevent the discovery a COVID-19 “vaccine”.
The diseases, for which we have discovered vaccines, it seems, were less transmissable as they were less airborne. Smallpox was mainly transmissable via direct bodily fluids. But prolonged face to face exposure within six feet was also seen as a possibility for infection, although rare. The main problem was the fluid from open sores, much like the herpes virus causes cold sores around the mouth, which is virally contagious or transmissable when sores are open. So, in the cases of such diseases, societies have been able to create immunity against those diseases. We really don’t see them anymore because we have true vaccines for them.
On the other hand, the seasonal flu has never been something, which has been fully eliminated because we have never developed a vaccine to provide immunity against the flu. This is mainly because of how quickly the flu viruses mutate. Coronaviruses are a group of related RNA viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. Coronaviruses can cause health problems ranging from a common cold to a flu or worse, even SARS, MERS, or SARS-2, which causes COVID-19. It’s important to remember COVID-19 is also a category, not a single disease. The HIV virus leads to AIDS, a category of diseases caused by immune system problems. Similarly, COVID-19 is a category of diseases caused by a compromised immune system’s inability to deal with coronaviruses. Most people, we understand, perhaps over 95%, who come into contact with coronaviruses do not become ill because their immune systems are not compromised.
It is very concerning that none of this seems to be considered by our general public response to COVID-19. Admittedly, even I haven’t read, or studied all of the resources, which Dr. Gary Null has presented on The Gary Null Show. Perhaps, the smear campaigns against his credibility affect us all, after all. The critics of “vaccines” have made compelling arguments, but they seem to have been character assassinated by the general public. Part of the issue seems to be different definitions of vaccine. For example, so-called anti-vaxxers, as far as we understand, are not opposed to early childhood immunizations. (However, Adam Curtis repored anti-vaxxers have been opposed to the MMR drug in a new video, 6 MAR 2021.)
Those vaccines are tried and true. The major contention is when novel drugs, which are experimental with unknown long-term effects, are pushed as safe and, even, pushed as mandatory. What of informed consent?
But we do know that the anti-COVID-19 drugs being pushed onto America right now have not been properly tested, which can take years. All Americans, and others, who take these novel drugs via injection are being used as live guinea pigs. This is a very serious concern, which we are not hearing adequate new reporting, nor analyses, nor opinions, nor context, nothing, just state-corporate gaslighting.
We know that when we face a serious challenge, we must address it from all possible angles. This means we must consider the value of nutrition and fitness. In this case of the COVID-19 pandemic, the unbalanced and single-minded focus on “vaccination” (sans immunity) by our nation’s medical leaders benefits for-profit drug companies and requires repeated doses, whilst completely ignoring the importance of the human immune system.
We’re not saying don’t vaccinate—although your author has never had a flu shot. But we emphasize: flu shots were never called flu vaccines. We’re just saying, people, don’t forget about your immune system, which is the human body’s first defense against everything.
If the immune system works for others, why not help it work for you, too? Why not strengthen it? Inject yourself, if you must. But please don’t ignore your immune system. Please learn about it, how it works, and how to maintain it. (cf. Dr. Bikman, Why We Get Sick)
And, of course, the human body requires regular movement. If we have desk jobs, we must be sure to get cardio exercise at least three or four times a week, depending on the person, for at least 30 minutes of sustained elevated heart rate. We must, somehow, simulate our ancestral lifestyles, which were hunter-gatherer lifestyles for, probably, millions of years.
Over time, this habit of cardio training will help accelerate your metabolism, which will allow your body to more effectively burn more calories, which will be used to build muscle, if you stimulate the muscles with weight training or resistance training, or similarly stimulating physical activity. The more muscle your body builds and maintains, the more fat it burns and the healthier the body composition becomes, with less body fat, more muscle, and greater bone density. I believe this is similarly true for women. We are seeing this evidenced increasingly. Dr. Stephanie Buttermore is a scientist and a natural bodybuilder, who has recently experimented with going all in, that is eating big to get big, the way that men do, who bodybuild. And it seems to be working for her.
The flawed thinking in the weight loss community has been caloric restriction. But we know that protein restriction limits muscle mass, which in turn has a cascade of negative effects in terms of body composition and general health. So, women and others would eat salads, restricting calories and whatnot, trying to lose weight. But the reality is—when we stop and think about it—we don’t want to lose weight. We want to lose excess fat. If we simply lose weight, we may be losing valuable muscle, which will decrease bone density, and have a cascade of other undesirable effects.
Your author, fortunately, hasn’t had a cold or flu, which caused a sick day in years, perhaps since starting to ‘eat clean‘ and adhering to a natural bodybuilding lifestyle a few years ago. Eating clean, for us, also means avoiding alcohol, as alcohol disrupts our hormone function and lowers men’s testosterone levels.
Then, there is the gut and its microbiome. For health and fitness, we need nutrition, which also requires effective nutrient absorption. This is where the gut’s microflaura and microfauna must be plentiful. (Cf. Dr. Bikman, Why We Get Sick)
For brown and black people, being critical and asking questions, not accepting corporate medical recommendations blindly, isn’t about vaccine hesitancy. After all, flu shots and covid shots are not vaccines, as they don’t create immunity.
When we get vaccinated as kids, we only get vaccinated once. We don’t need to continually get polio vaccines or smallpox vaccines every year or every season because those are real vaccines, unlike flu shots, which are like designer drugs for people, who can afford, ostensibly, supplemental protection against the flu.
But many of us have never bought into the notion of flu shots. And, despite not buying into the flu shot fad, we basically never get the flu or colds. It’s one thing, if we’re elderly, but why should young people write off their immune system function?
What do we make of this profit-making scheme of selling flu shots, which are unnecessary for healthy people, but pushed upon people, who perhaps overlook their own fitness, health, and immune system? Are we being trained to ignore our own immune systems and how to strengthen them naturally via nutrition and fitness? Are we heading toward a Wall-E future, as a society? Only if we don’t wake the folk up.
Where there are people, there is human power.
A few salient observations:
- Pacifica Radio’s Davey D (Hard Knock Radio) has reported today that celebrated and beloved political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal has contracted COVID-19! Further medical tests concluded Mumia has “congestive heart disease.” ‘Dr. Ricardo Alvarez said the only acceptable treatment is freedom.’ WE ASK THAT ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS BE RELEASED BECAUSE PRISON IS FOR LAWBREAKERS, NOT POLITICAL DISSENTERS.
- Dr. Gary Null featured audio from Ireland of dissent against the state narratives around COVID-19. cf. ACU2020.org says, ‘If we use real science, there is no need for lockdowns. We support academic freedom.’
- Sue Goodwin, et al at Pacifica Radio have reported Capitol Hill Police in DC increased security today (4 MAR 2021), anticipating an attack from Trump loyalists, who claim March 4th is the true inauguration day.
- Leonard Lopate at Large (WBAI) interviewed a co-director of, and activist featured in, the new documentary film, The People vs. Agent Orange. The film discusses local farmers, who learned of the toxic effects and environmental destruction of the chemical known as Agent Orange and other pesticides, who decided to take action for justice, and became activists. They described horrors, such as babies being born without brains and other birth defects. This reminds us of the Gulf War Syndrome. They also described legal wins after much activist struggle, direct action, and civil disobedience. Activists even put their bodies where the Forest Service was going to spray, under contract from timber companies. One activist got sprayed and now has Parkinson’s disease in her young age of forty-something. This reminds us of Kingian struggle.

Lord Sumption corroborates our view on the police state lockdowns from day one. From day one when we were laid off in March 2020. It was clear to your author that that day would be a historic day, but for sinister reasons.
(c. 17:16) LORD SUMPTION: “I’m not beholden to anybody. I am retired. I am not bound by the conventions, that would bind a serving judge. And I’m also wholly politically neutral. I have absolutely no political allegiance.
“I think it’s very unfortunate that this has, to some extent, become a political issue.”
UNHERD: ‘How has it fared to be, suddenly, in this controversial minority?” (17:42)
LORD SUMPTION: “Well, I regret that it’s a minority. But I think that somebody has got to speak up for the many victims, some of whom don’t realize they’re victims—but shortly will—of the current measures.
“Somebody has to speak up, particularly, for the young. I mean there are many categories of victims. But the most striking thing is that we are destroying the career opportunities of a generation of people. […]
