Foxes and Henhouses
When Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla says he’s worried about a holiday surge of COVID-19 among the unvaccinated, he’s not being altruistic.
“Eventually there will be sort of this digital immunity proof that, you know, will help facilitate the global reopening up.”
-Bill Gates, Ted Talk, March 24, 2020
“If everyone says, ‘Listen I gotta take the vaccine. I need it for my job…and if everybody capitulates, you know what the great fear is? ‘Okay everybody now get in line for the booster.’”
-Dr. Peter McCullough, August 5, 2021
“Notably, Israel with over 60% of their population fully vaccinated had the highest COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the last 7 days (out of 68 countries and 2,947 U.S. counties analyzed)."

“This is not about your health. This is not protecting you from a virus. This is not about any of that. This is about controlling you. Controlling society”

“Boosters are needed. Boosters are needed because without them we will never get rid of this vicious cycle of the disease.”
Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, November 5, 2021
Why do you not have the fox guard the henhouse? Because the fox will eat the hens, which is why you have a guard over the henhouse in the first place. When Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla says he’s worried about a holiday surge of COVID-19 among the unvaccinated, he’s not being altruistic. Bourla calls the medical professionals and others questioning the idea that the vaccine is the only way out of the pandemic, “criminals” who hope to benefit and profit by spreading “fear” and “misinformation.”
That’s rich coming from Big Pharma, making billions off of the experimental vaccines while being completely absolved of liability by Federal law, if the vaccines turn out to be injuring people. It reminds me of the line in the movie You’ve Got Mail, “You poor sad multimillionaire; I feel so sorry for you.” Except for in this case, it would be multi-billionaire. The Covid vaccines are big money for Big Pharma. And now it was just announced that the U.S. government will pay $5.29 billion for 10 million courses of Pfizer’s experimental COVID-19 treatment in the form of a pill. Let the good times roll (if you’re Bourla).
There are treatments for COVID-19, beyond the vaccine, that should have been implemented in the U.S. long ago as standard treatment protocols. Instead, they’ve been squelched by Big Pharma, public health and government officials, and the media. Doctors who have tried to share information about how they’ve successfully treated Covid patients with these meds have been vilified, and their licenses and credentials have been threatened. Yet put a little research into the situations in India and Mexico, and you see that their Covid cases dropped dramatically as soon as they started treating Covid with inexpensive repurposed drugs, that were already on the World Health Organization list of essential medications. These are the same meds being used to successfully treat Covid patients in the U.S. by a handful of brave doctors, but that narrative has not been allowed. We’ve been told over and over that the vaccines are our only hope.
So with Big Pharma making billions, and the reputation of numerous public health and government officials tied up in the idea that the vaccines are our only way out of the pandemic, the henhouse is wide open. In mimicking the response of Communist China from the beginning of the pandemic, western democracies are turning into totalitarian shadows of their former selves. None are spared, although some are going that direction more quickly than others.
In March 2021, Israel was the first country to institute a vaccine passport. Fully vaccinated citizens must have the so-called “Green Pass,” to enter gyms, restaurants, pubs, theaters, concerts – basically to enter the public square. The unvaccinated have been ostracized, even if they have natural immunity through having recovered from Covid. In its beneficence, the Health Ministry announced on November 1, 2021 that those who have recovered from Covid can also obtain a Green Pass IF they do blood work to show they have coronavirus antibodies, and IF they receive a single vaccine dose. Israel has its citizens in a choke hold, in which their only relief is to do what the government says. “Papers please.”
Austria, amid a rise in Covid cases, instituted the world’s first lockdown of just the unvaccinated on November 15, 2021. Previously, the unvaccinated were not allowed in places like restaurants, theaters, and hair salons, but now they are mandated to stay home. They can only leave for government approved reasons such as going to the doctor, or for essential grocery shopping. Police officers have been instructed to stop people on the street and check their digital or paper vaccine passport. Fines for violators start at $572, and are triple that amount if a citizen refuses to participate in the checks. The lockdown is expected to last 10 days but it all depends, Comrade, on what the government deems is correct. Meanwhile the clean are out shopping for Christmas, and feeling safe, because those unclean people have been removed from society.
Have you seen the old Manchurian Candidate movie starring Frank Sinatra? A battalion of nine soldiers is captured during the Korean War. Raymond Shaw, who is not liked by his fellow troops, is selected by their captors to become a political assassin when they return to the United States. They are all brainwashed to forget the whole incident, and to instead remember Raymond as a dear friend who saved them all when caught behind enemy lines. “Raymond Shaw is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I’ve even know in my life,” each will quickly reply when questioned about how they feel about him. The Sinatra character begins to question why he says that every time, yet doesn’t feel it, and gradually realizes he’s been brainwashed and that a sinister plot is unfolding.
I sometimes think about this movie when I hear official statements made over and over. It used to be the phrases that popped up worldwide, apparently organically – “Prevent the spread, wear a mask,” Stay Home to Stay Safe,” “We’re all in this together,” “Be considerate, stay 6-feet apart.” And the ubiquitous, “Follow the science.” But now we have perhaps the most dangerous Covid slogan of all: “The vaccines have been proven safe and effective.” How many times have you heard that? It’s like a cheery trademark, “Safe and Effective.” You hear it from government, media, academic, and ecclesiastical leaders. It must be true after all; right on the CDC website we read, “COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.” (They added the bolding; I didn’t.)
Most people know that vaccines have saved millions of lives. Tetanus infection had a 100% fatality rate until a vaccine was developed that is almost 100% effective against symptoms and death. Children are now protected against serious childhood diseases such as polio, measles, and scarlet fever, which previously caused thousands of injuries and deaths each time they flared up. One thing previous vaccines have in common is this: They were thoroughly tested in clinical trials before being given to the general public, in a process that takes years.
We have no long-term data for the Covid vaccines, which were developed in 2020 and began to be injected in mass numbers of people in 2021. Why? Why are we mass vaccinating the population with an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) only drug, for a disease that has 99.98% survival rate? Did you know that every single Covid vaccine or booster given for COVID-19 in 2021 was an emergency use authorization drug?
But, you say, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have approved them for use, and the FDA gave full authorization for Pfizer in September. Yes, but allow me to make two points: 1) Giving full approval to a drug for which we have no long-term data, doesn’t change the fact that there is no long-term data. 2) The full approval is for Pfizer’s Comirnaty drug, which won’t be released until January 2022. The FDA states that “The licensed vaccine has the same formulation as the EUA-authorized vaccine and the products can be used interchangeably to provide the vaccination series without presenting any safety or effectiveness concerns.” Safe and Effective.
The fact that the formula is the same is cause for concern. The Delta variant has become dominant because it can get around the vaccine formulated for the original virus, which we’re not even seeing anymore. The vaccinated are contracting and spreading COVID-19 in large numbers throughout the world, yet we hear all the time that the pandemic is being driven by the unvaccinated. Natural immunity to Covid, obtained by contracting and recovering from the disease, has been discounted and ignored. Thousands of essential and frontline workers throughout the pandemic contracted the disease and recovered. Studies show that they have better immunity to Covid than those who are vaccinated, but these people are losing their jobs and their freedoms, for refusing to be vaccinated against a disease for which they are already immune. (See the links at the end of this paper for further information on this topic.)
Although we don’t have long-term data for the vaccines, we do have the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.
This is a database where primarily doctors report adverse reactions to medications. Check out the data for the COVID vaccines, and you will find that through November 12, 2021 there were 654,412 adverse events reported in the U.S. alone. These included 8,664 deaths, 3,900 incidences of myocarditis or pericarditis (heart inflammation), and many other events including miscarriages, heart attacks, Bell’s Palsy, thrombocytopenia/low platelet, and shingles. There are around 10,000 reports of people who have been permanently disabled after getting the jab.
VAERS shows that medication-related deaths have been far below 500 each year since 1990, until 2021 when they’ve spiked to almost 9,000. Reports of death due to the Covid vaccine are greatest in the first 48 hours after receiving the shot. It is estimated by a 2010 Harvard study commissioned by the Department of Health and Human Services that reports to VAERS represent only 1% of actual injuries, as most events go unreported. But beyond VAERS and the reporting of adverse reactions to the shots, we need to remember that we know nothing of the long-term effects of the vaccines. Nothing. We are all part of a massive clinical trial.
Dr. Paul Alexander is an expert in evidence-based medicine, research methodology and clinical epidemiology, and was a Covid advisor in the Trump Administration. Dr. Alexander states, “We’ve never vaccinated people and boosted them multiple times a year. We do not know how the immune system is going to react to so much boosting because the vaccine developers did not study it.” He also says, “If you say these vaccines are safe for my children, remove the liability protection.”
The CDC response to the alarming VAERS numbers is, “These reports are rare and the known and potential benefits of COVID-19 vaccination outweigh the known and potential risks.” On November 2, 2021 CDC Director Rochelle Walensky repeated another one of the phrases we hear so much, as she endorsed Covid vaccinations for children ages 5-11. “COVID-19 vaccines have undergone –and will continue to undergo – the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history.” That’s a lie.
Epidemiologist and cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough states, “The CDC and FDA are sponsors of the vaccine program, so they in no way have any right or any role of making a comment regarding causality and death…[because] they have an inherent bias.” Dr. McCullough explains that the sponsor of a clinical trial is not the group to determine side effects from the product. There should have been an “external group of individuals called a Critical Event Committee, and then a responsible body called the Data Safety Monitoring Board to make the call.” These groups should have been in place from the beginning of the vaccine rollout by the CDC and the FDA, but they weren’t. Dr. McCullough states, “If we would have had them in place, I think the vaccine program would have been stopped in February for excess mortality. At that time we had 182 deaths.”
So ask yourself this. Is it logical to vaccinate the entire world for a disease that targets the elderly and those with comorbidities, and has an overall survivability rate of 99.98% without the vaccine? Is it appropriate to vaccinate children with an Emergency Use only drug for an illness that is not a childhood disease and for which they have almost no risk? Is it proper to separate the unvaccinated from the vaccinated? Is it ethical to coerce people into receiving a medical treatment they don’t want, by making them choose between the jab and their jobs? Has it been in our best interest to have every doctor, scholar, public health official, researcher, and scientist who has questioned the official narrative about Covid be discredited and even threatened with discipline by their medical and academic institutions?
The fox is guarding the henhouse. It is disturbing to see Big Pharma Bourla sycophantically interviewed by newscasters asking him if the vaccine is safe, and if he’s worried about holiday travel. It’s frightening to know the safety protocols surrounding the vaccines have not been met, even as the CDC and Dr. Fauci assure us that they are Safe and Effective, and are preparing everyone to receive the boosters. It’s heartbreaking to know that ill-advised parents are vaccinating their children. It’s almost unbelievable to watch the power grabs being justified in the name of Public Safety as democracies throughout the world march toward totalitarianism.
You won’t see much of this on the mainstream news, but almost daily there are thousands of people in the U.S. and around the world demonstrating against mandatory vaccinations. These are people from all different backgrounds and beliefs. Many are vaccinated. What all these demonstrators have in common is the gut conviction that mandating vaccines is wrong, and that this is a freedom issue, not a public health issue.
We need to recognize that we have been subjected to a massive propaganda campaign and an inflammation of fears over a disease that never rose to the level of mayhem that was predicted. The Spanish Flu of 1918 killed 52 million people worldwide, which would be 216 million in today’s numbers, adjusted for population. COVID-19 has killed just over 5 million, targeting the elderly. The vaccines are not preventing the spread, and are causing injuries to many who were not at risk from contracting the disease.
This idea of requiring a digital medical passport in order to participate in society has taken a huge hold on the minds and lives of many. The push hasn’t been as effective in the U.S. because of our Constitution and the separation of powers, plus the system of State and Federal governments sharing powers. But Pres. Biden on September 9, 2021 unleashed an invasive attack on the civil liberties of all Americans. That battle is currently working its way through the courts, but we all know someone who has already been negatively impacted.
Individually we need to make sure that we aren’t going along with government Covid mandates in order to make our own lives more comfortable. If we do, we will all eventually lose.
