Vax Attack Strategies

I’ve been asked to gather info on ways to mitigate the negative health consequences of succumbing to the “vax”. This post will likely be a mix of links to resources, info, & commentary on the same. Hope this will be helpful in your search for medical freedom from tyranny, coercion, disability, & death!

I’m having computer challenges so am temporarily using a tablet to add some important links…

You want real science that will save your son?

The censored hypothesis of Antonio Chaves that you referenced below is an example of REAL SCIENCE that is being much more effectively squelched. WHY? Because it gives CREDIT to our side – not discreditation like much of the “bad attempts at science out of their fields” that is typified by the “microscope studies”.

Chaves has a brilliant explanation of censored science – why the vaccine damage seems to localize in the heart. Trust me – FAUCI KNEW THIS.

And that is NOT the only place that the vaccine localizes to do damage.

Remember the Swedish study by de Marinis that showed genetic incorporation of the Pfizer vaccine into LIVER CELLS? Yes. This vaccine is an extreme risk for your son.

Don’t wait for “proof” on that to be published and acknowledged. It may be YEARS for the truth to come out, unless there is a “putting down” of the Bidenistas and their depop scheme very soon. Fauci is bailing to PROTECT THE DEATH SCAM.

Your son has DUTIES he must obey here.

  • being alive to care for his future wife in 10 years, 20 years, 30 years
  • not throwing away his liver
  • waiting for the TRUTH to come out
  • honoring his mother by LISTENING TO HER

How long would he WAIT for his future wife? THAT IS KEY.

Is he listening to LUSTS to be with her now? I know where that’s coming from….

Here is the SCIENCE.

Your son needs to do what my great aunt did, when her fiance fled Germany for England – WAIT.

He needs to not do what the fiance did – become impatient and GIVE UP HOPE. He married another woman in England, and regretted it. He wanted to get back together with my great aunt, but she didn’t answer his letters, because she would not break up his marriage.

The spike protein does not belong in the bloodstream. Even Novavax damages the heart.

If your son gets COVID, he will get immunity. If he treats with ivermectin, it will prevent genomic incorporation, thwarting their plot.

There are other ways. Don’t give up hope in TRUTH and LOVE!!!

IN GOD WE TRUST.

Regretting taking the jab

This website has numerous testimonials by people who were vax injured:

https://www.realnotrare.com/

from one testimonial found here: https://www.realnotrare.com/post/sarah-cox

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I wish others knew these vaccine injuries are real, people are really suffering. Doctors don’t know how to fix us, we continue to be sick, and we are suffering while also being silenced. We matter too. We want help. We want answers. We want to feel better again.

& from another testimonial found here: https://www.realnotrare.com/post/amy-fosser

Q: What do you wish others knew?

That this is so unsafe. Your better off without it. It has killed so many people. It has injured an obscene amount of people and counting. Lose the job, refuse the jab. It isn’t worth it. I am a case among thousands that have been silenced and ignored by government and fake media. There is no reason to ban the injured. We are forgotten, abandoned and shamed. This is the emotional anguish that is hardest to deal with, not to be heard, told to shut up, forced to be hidden. This is unacceptable and inhumane…We are being told that we injured are spreading misinformation. HOW? To all those whom are accomplises in this forced ultimatum, shame on them. They are not protecting anyone, and they do more harm. They are liars and thieves. Stealing innocent people’s livelihood, leaving families in financial and emotional ruin. Trust the science they say. My injury is part of the science. Thousands of my vaccine injured warriors are part of the science.

From another testimonial, found here: https://www.realnotrare.com/post/john-parker

Q: What do you wish others knew?

Please listen to our stories and take good care of your health! Yes, the COVID-19 virus can be deadly, but the COVID-19 vaccines can kill or injure you as well. Get informed and weigh the risks and benefits before undergoing any medical treatment.

Why did our government officials, the CDC, and the media insist that these vaccines were “safe and effective” without warning us about the numerous adverse side effects? Are these vaccines truly helping people avoid getting sick and transmitting the virus? Why are they ignoring natural immunity and therapeutics while mercilessly threatening everyone to get vaccinated—when we don’t even know the long-term effects? Why are we being forced to take these shots and yet the manufacturers are not liable for hurting or killing us?

Finally, I would like to share this advice……“You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.” Take care and be-aware!

Depopulation is what it’s all really about!

Here is a post containing multiple links and an informed discussion about the depopulation aspects of the “vax”

American Association of Physicians and Surgeons have multiple resources listed on a Covid-19 page here: https://c19protocols.com/

Here is where they recommend strategies post-“vax”:

Here is an item found at the above site:

Here is a site with multiple documents to use to advocate for your own & a loved one’s freedoms! https://americasfrontlinedoctors.org/legal/vaccines-and-the-law

Here are a couple jumping off places if one desires to declare a religious exemption for any form of medical tyranny:

https://americasfrontlinedoctors.org/legal/religious-exemptions

https://www.tc.columbia.edu/articles/2021/june/religious–medical-exemptions-from-covid-19-vaccine-mandate/

Here is an example of help in formulating a statement about one’s religious convictions about the “vax” from the above site:

Every time I try to write my personal statement I freeze up. Can you help me?

Sure, start by feeling the truth of your conviction. This is not a writing contest. Let go of your fear and see it as an opportunity to share your voice. You are being wronged and you have the right to state your noble position.

Here’s a starter to help you get going:

Everything about this vaccine goes against my sense (the sense God has given me) of what is the right thing to do.

Write a sentence for each of these (or come up with some more of your own) and connect them to your faith:

  1. Speed of the trials
  2. No long-term studies
  3. Shown to have harmful side effects
  4. No liability for pharmaceutical companies

If any of these resonate with you, connect them with your faith to have your voice heard.

American Abortion Abomination…

I ran across this very moving comment on another blog:

Friday February 23rd – Open Thread

and wanted to save it & my reply to my own blog for future reference.  If the stats quoted by NorthWoodsWatcher are accurate if one even attempts to contemplate the worldwide annihilation of un/pre-born humans the overarching evil & indifference is staggering.

See the source image

from a Bing.com image search for “children are a heritage from the Lord”

What blessings, challenges, sorrows, & joys are we as a people denying ourselves, our nation, our world by rejecting & destroying God’s most precious gift–The Gift of Life?

 

 

northwoodswatcher says:

Yes, the figure quoted of babies killed since 1973 legalization of abortion is more than 60 million.

Of course, that figure only reflects surgical or medical abortions.

The figure quoted does not accurately represent the number of human beings killed by all forms of abortion. By this I mean we need to include chemical abortions.

Chemical abortion is far and away the chief mode of baby/embroyo killing in the U.S. over the past half century. As you read down this page you will see that the actual baby/embryo-killing figure is colossal.

The statistics below are from the American Life League (ALL): http://www.all.org

ALL is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life education organization in the U.S.

Here is their abortion statistics page:http://www.all.org/learn/abortion/abortion-statistics/

FACT. Since the first states decriminalized abortion in 1967, it is estimated that more than 60,000,000 reported surgical abortions were performed in the U.S.

FACT: An estimated 1,878,990 were committed before Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that lifted all restrictions.

FACT: ALL estimates that the total number of surgical abortion performed in the U.S. from 1973 to 2013 is 56.5 million.

FACT: An average of 1,300,000 babies are killed annually in the U.S. through surgical abortion.

FACT: Because many contraceptive measures are abortifacients (drugs that induce or cause abortions), it is important not to overlook the number of children killed by chemical abortions. Since 1965, an average of 11 million women have used abortifacient methods of birth control in the U.S. at any given time.

FACT: Using formulas based on the way the birth control pill works, pharmacy experts project that about 14,000,000 chemical abortions occur in the U.S. each year.

FACT: ALL estimates that a total well in excess of 560,000,000 chemical abortions were performed in the U.S. between 1965 and 2005.

FACT: Using formulas based on the way the birth control pill works, pharmacy experts project that well in excess of 610,000,000 chemical abortions were performed in the U.S. between 1965 and 2009.

FACT: Since that 610,000,000 figure only takes you to 2009, you have to add in the years 2010 to 2017 — eight additional years of chemical abortions. Eight times 14,000,000 equals 112,000,000. Now add in the estimated 61,000,000 surgical and medical abortions since 1965. The total is 797,000,000.

So this is what I wanted to point out — the American abortion number is not 60,000,000-plus.

No, it is 13 times that amount.

Let’s put this mass murdering into context:
• 20,946,000 = murdered by the Nazis
• 61,911,000 = murdered by the Soviet Union (1917-1987).
• 76,692,000 = murdered by Red China (this is a moving number, since the communist Chinese still have prison camps).

IMHO, you can thank the 19th Amendment for the sorry fact that American women are far and away the top mass murderers of all time.

FACTOID: A majority of American women have consistently voted for DemonRAT in EVERY SINGLE Presidential election since Reagan vs. Carter, i.e., for the past 36 years.

Draw your own conclusions.

  • Before I got married I went on “The Pill” so my body would have time to adjust to the changes by the wedding. I specifically grilled the doctor about the Pill being a possible abortifacient & she absolutely lied to my face that it wasn’t. Although I was only on that chemical for about a half a year after marriage I’m still haunted by the possibility that multiple children were conceived but chemically sloughed off. I did get pregnant the first month I was off the Pill after having been told it can take “many” months before one conceives.

    I warn child-bearing aged Christians I know about The Pill being an abortifacient, but am not sure that any of them are overly concerned. The blood of all these children sacrificed to “Molech” surely cries out to the Lord! May God convict, forgive, & heal us all…

Commenting on Mental Illness

Stella has written a thoughtful & insightful post about a pervasive crisis within society here:

This is not progress – mental illness today in the USA

 

I wanted to share my comment on her post on my blog with my readers, so here it is:

First of all, sorry for the long post, I guess I got on a bit of a roll. So I’m leaving the below “as is” & hope that I haven’t crossed any lines or offended anyone. Most of this comment is based on first or second hand experience, for what it’s worth…

Years ago a psychologist did an assessment on me & said I was “severely depressed”. Some time later, at a doctor’s visit, I mentioned to the physician that I May be “severely depressed”, assuming the assessment was accurate. He offered immediately to prescribe anti-depressants for me. I declined & he actually said “good”. I told him my “depression” (assuming it’s “real”) was likely due in large part to having a severely disabled son, being overwhelmed with the care of four young children, financial stressors, & a lack of relational support systems. I said that I needed to learn how to live within the confines of the life God has given me & didn’t want some type of drug to mask the pain (treat just the symptom). Learning to live with grace in a less-than-perfect-reality (the only kind there is) is basically the essence of the human condition.

By the way, we’ve used psych meds on almost all of my ADHD family members at one time or another. There have been some benefits from the Ritalin style meds several of them used to take. However, 3 of the 4 family members with ADHD prefer Not to use meds to mediate their symptoms. All are gainfully employed & were reasonably successful students (though each hated school to some degree historically), though this condition still impacts their communication & relationships to varying degrees.

My much more complex son was/is a more difficult case. We were pressured to put him on “Ritalin” by the school system (ilegally)–while he was still in Special Ed Pre-School. I was extremely reluctant “to drug my kid up to get some peace of mind”. Several years after the initial pressure based on psych testing & input from a physician familiar with complex special needs kids, we put him on a trial of ADHD medicine–Welbutrin. That worked for him for about a year but he began to develop strange facial tics so we switched him to Strattera. He was on that for several years & it helped his attention, but after Welbutrin was removed (an anti-depressant) his behavioral/emotional control was markedly diminished (probably more of what he was like w/out psych meds but a Huge contrast to the relative “calm” on Welbutrin). Anyway that lead to the doc prescribing Paxil for his Autism cocktail of “depression, anxiety, & obsessive compulsive disorder”.

He functioned relatively well on Strattera & Paxil for years. However Neuropsychological Testing revealed significant attentional/processing issues that might be better addressed with an additional med, Metadate (a form of Ritalin). When the combo of S, P, & M was used for him he had some significant academic gains. He worked more slowly (took his time & thought things through a bit?) but his accuracy improved practically exponentially.

This was my son who needed a Liver Transplant, and as that surgery approached, we began to discuss his entire medication regimen from the standpoint of what would be best from his liver needs as well as what could appropriately address his other medical conditions with needed meds. Ultimately it was decided that Strattera would have to go as it was notoriously hard on the liver. Ironically once that med was removed he began having some of those facial tics again, though not as severely nor as noticeably as when he was younger.

I’d been “short dosing” his Paxil for years. He’d been prescribed 5mls & we’d usually use about 3mls. When he got used to the 3mls (& the doc adjusted her script to how much we were actually using, which was much less than the “therapeutic dose”) we continued to lower his typical dose to about 1.2mls. Even with that very small dose our whole family Really Noticed his behavioral issues when he’d forgotten to take Paxil.

Eventually after the Liver Transplant my son basically self-weaned off of Paxil all together. He still struggles with his emotional control & his anxiety & OCD issues have come a bit more to the forefront without Paxil. However, even when he’s in a place of diminished emotional control he still typically chooses not to “use” Paxil as an emotional crutch. We have supported him in his choices (he’s 22 & “his own guardian” who still needs much guidance & support) but remind him that that medication is available as a tool to assist him in managing his emotional needs, if he so chooses.

Also, since taking him off Strattera his communication has gone Way Up…Since the Liver Transplant it’s almost like he’s become a different person, much more interactive, more hyper verbally, sharing thoughts & feelings more freely, etc. This is likely due to more than just the med change but does make me wonder if the Strattera was rather slowing him down, not the way Metadate did to help him do more accurate work, but like putting him more in a stupor or a fog, for years. Given the complexities of his birth liver function & the buildup of toxins system-wide prior to transplant there’s really no way to know. I just wanted to mention it because the changes we observe(d) were likely due to multiple factors….

We are a Christian family, & this son, even more than all the rest of us “normal” family members, has an extremely vibrant relationship with the Lord. When he is facing intense emotional turmoil we encourage him to spend focused time with the Lord, reading Scripture, praying, & worshiping. This he does quite frequently. I remind him that one of the Fruits of the Spirit (according to Scripture) is Self-Control. Even though he is “wired” in his natural state to have less self-control, given the nature of most of his medical conditions, the Power of God is greater than his diagnoses & the Lord can help him come to a place of managing his emotional/behavioral challenges.

When he’s in an overblown state he’s often irrational in the heat of the moment, perhaps for a couple of minutes. However, we encourage him to step back (take a time out), use breathing techniques (& other skills gained via years of therapy, trial & error, or “professional input” from me–I’m a non-practicing Licensed Professional Counselor), engage the Lord directly, let us pray for/with him, etc. Anyway, usually these things work pretty quickly for him though due to “perseveration” (where he gets stuck in a mental or emotional groove) he may need A Lot of Processing Time, retreading the same ground over memories, hurts, confusion, & communication techniques & challenges…

This is all a Very Long Haul Process…

Years back I wondered if he would grab a weapon & do me bodily harm. As a grade schooler up through the junior high years he used to ball his fist & raise it over his head & his whole body/soul would shake as he wrestled with his extreme desire to punch me in the face. He never did such a punch. However he used to shove, hit, & claw at all family members but his dad (unless he was in an Extreme out of control rage) & appeared to deliberately enjoy inflicting physical &/or emotional harm when he was past the point of caring. He has come An Extremely Long Way since those more difficult days. He still seems to enjoy pushing other people’s buttons, just a little bit, & also throwing others under the bus…but then again, who doesn’t???! He still has his struggles & sometimes still “acts out” verbally or physically, but he de-escalates quickly & is usually truly sorry & repentant pretty quickly. I’d love to see the seas calmed before the storm hits, when the clouds are dark & heavy the the swells on the increase but apparently Jesus still sleeps in the boat well of my son’s soul until the storm has hit & his overwhelmed follower rouses Him so that even “the wind & the waves obey Him”…

Anyway, the bottom line is that I believe that mental/emotional illness is real & it is not automatically evidence of “demonic” oppression as many Believers have suggested over the generations. As a Christian I believe that God is the Creator of All Things, including mankind. As such it’s important to read the manual (Bible) in order to find out the best way for the human creation to function. Our personal experiences of living with complex mental/emotional “illnesses” have shown that the Power of God is able heal our wounded hearts & minds. He can enable us to “rise above” our “nature” & submit ourselves to His Lordship. Medication, Therapy, Supportive Relationships, Practice, & Consistent Reinforcement can all play a BIG ROLE in how well one might “overcome” or learn reasonably successful coping strategies to wrestle our own personal “demons”.

However, society at large, especially one steeped in secularism, political correctness, & lefty thinking is wholly inadequate to address the real and abiding needs of the mentally ill, chemically dependent, & certain types of severe disabilities. As such a modern rendition of some type of institutional system (NOT Prison) should be investigated, implemented, & evaluated and this is a need of crisis proportions. As this is a social problem it needs attention from society. Balancing the needs of the client/patient with those of society at large will possibly take a degree of wisdom not seen since Solomon. Having Federal Support/Oversight with Local Control seems like the most reasonable approach. Using faith-based systems in place might be a good starting place.

There probably will never be any type of complete solution to this problem. It seems akin to what Jesus said “the poor you will have with you always”…but it must also be tempered with another of the Lord’s sayings: “whatever you have done to the least of these, you have done unto Me!”. The final guidance should be “do unto others as you would have others do unto you” (or your parent/spouse/child/friend/co-worker)…

Just my 2 cents…for free!

May God Guide & Direct Us as we seek to address these glaring needs…
