(LifeSiteNews) — Most of us know by now — despite the efforts of the legacy media and the Biden administration to hide the fact — that the China virus poses virtually zero risk to kids. The vast majority of children who contract it will come down with no more than the sniffles, if they show any symptoms at all.
Even better, once they are exposed to it, their immune systems will ever after be alert not only for the original invader, but for nearly all of the variants that it spins off over time. This robust immunity will probably last their entire lives. After all, the survivors of the much more deadly Spanish Flu of 1918–19 came away with life-long immunity.
But the wonderful process by which the human body produces natural immunity to a novel virus it has never encountered before will be short-circuited if they get an mRNA jab.
It will be committing what is called the “original antigenic sin.”
The Original Antigenic Sin
It turns out that the human immune system is not capable of an infinite number of responses to an infinite number of viruses. Rather, the strongest response to influenza viruses is produced by the body’s first exposure to the disease, which usually occurs in childhood.
But it is not only that subsequent immune responses to the influenza are weaker, which they are. That would be concerning enough. The problem is that the first childhood infection primes the immune system to respond to subsequent infections with antibodies to the original strain. The “original antigenic sin,” in other words, causes the immune response to miss the target.
The authors of a 2005 Nature Medicine article define the “original antigenic sin” as follows: “After exposure to a new but cross-reacting antigenic variant, such individuals may respond by producing antibodies that are primarily directed at antigens characterizing influenza viruses encountered during earlier epidemics.”
In other words, their bodies are producing antibodies to the variant they were first exposed to in childhood, rather than to the variant that is currently circulating in the population and to which they have now been exposed.
Think about that in the context of the China Virus. This is a novel coronavirus that no one on the planet has ever before encountered. Nor are they fully exposed to it when they are vaccinated with the mRNA vaccine, only to its spike protein.
Once that spike protein mutates, as it already has in the Delta variant, the body has no other epitopes — parts of the virus — that it immediately recognizes and can use produce appropriate antibodies. So what does it do? It produces antibodies for the original China Virus’ spike protein, because that’s what it has been programmed to do.
This misallocation of the body’s immune resources, as we might call it, seems to mute the development of the kind of robust, long-lasting immunity that results from a natural infection. This is why, in the U.K., the “fully vaccinated are suffering far higher rates of infection than the unvaccinated, and it is getting worse by the day.”
Since the vaccines may attenuate the body’s immune response to other variants, the mass vaccination campaign of countries around the world may lead to repeated waves of infection — each of which will be met by a frantic and ultimately futile attempt to give everyone booster shots — which at best will offer only temporary and limited protection until the next variant comes along.
Many, perhaps most, of those resisting the jab have already recovered from bouts of the China Virus, enjoy herd immunity, and realize that the mRNA vaccine has nothing whatsoever to offer them but an endless series of booster shots.
The best real-life illustration of Original Antigenic Sin comes from the effort to develop a vaccine for dengue fever, which people get from the bite of an infected mosquito. There are four main variants of the dengue virus, and the original vaccine only covered one of them. Subsequent boosters for the other variants proved ineffective because it only triggered “the immunological footprint of the first vaccination.”
But it’s even worse than that, as the authors conclude:
Original antigenic sin has the advantage that a response can be rapidly mobilized from memory. However, the downside is that in some cases, such as dengue, the response is dominated by inferior-quality antibody. ….
Once a response has been established, it is unlikely that repeat boosting will be able to change its scope, meaning that balanced responses against the four virus serotypes will need to be established with the first vaccine dose.
The danger that may arise from the mRNA vaccines is not only that they confer narrow immunity to a specific variant, but that they may undermine our immune system’s response to future variants, leading to longer and more severe infections.
The risk/reward ratio is upside down
Any drug or vaccine that is swallowed or injected into the body is going to produce side effects. If one is suffering from a disease, especially one with serious symptoms, side effects don’t matter so much. I’m willing to take acetaminophen to relieve a headache even though I know that continually taking the drug over long periods of time may cause liver damage. The immediate benefit outweighs the possible short- or long-term cost.
But the calculations are very different with a vaccine. In this case you are giving a healthy person — you can’t vaccinate those who are already ill — something that produces no immediate benefit. Should they one day be exposed to the disease being targeted by the vaccine, the hope is that the vaccine will either reduce their risk of catching it, or reduce the severity of their symptoms if they do. Then again, they may never encounter the disease, in which case the lifetime benefit is effectively zero.
It's official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.
We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden's tyrannical public coercion efforts.
Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.
On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine -- many against their will.
While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.
This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new "six-point plan" that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.
Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:
- A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
- A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
- A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
- A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
- A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
- A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
- A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)
All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers -- 2/3rds of the entire workforce!
And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.
While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half's worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.
And now, it would seem that time has officially come.
"This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration's blatant dismissal of all Americans' right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.
This is a stunning reversal from Biden's declaration last December that "I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory."
In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states' rights in the process, warning that "If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way."
These are not the words of an "empathetic" leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden's tyranny is through mass noncompliance.
As we've said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.
But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people's jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.
This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.
Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

Since the benefits that people derive from a vaccine is much smaller than that which people derive from a drug for an existing condition, the risk of side effects from the vaccine has to be much, much smaller as well.
In the case of the highly infectious China Virus, the odds are that everyone — including the vaccinated, as the CDC now admits — is eventually going to contract the disease. Since the kids will survive it just fine, the “reward” part of the risk/reward ratio is effectively nil. As in zero, zilch, nada.
Not so the “risk” part, given that there is a small, but quantifiable, danger that children will develop myocarditis and other health problems in consequence.
So why in the world is the FDA saying that it is a good idea to vaccinate all children in the U.S. from 5 to 11 years of age?
There is another, potentially more serious problem with giving kids an mRNA jab that at best offers a few months of protection against a variant that is already dying out. Namely, it may cripple their body’s immune response to future coronaviruses that it would otherwise handily vanquish.
Finally, there is a benefit to society as a whole from letting the highly adaptable immune systems of children take on and defeat the virus.
The brilliant Alex Berenson sums it up best: “The most dangerous things to do, at this point, would be [to] vaccinate children. The virus is not a threat to them, and if they are infected by the new forms of SARS-2 that are sure to emerge every winter, we will begin to establish — through them and the as yet unvaccinated — the layered immunity that is the only way of coming to terms with SARS-2 in the longer term.”
So take your kids out of public school, if you have to. Move to a state that has banned vaccination mandates, as Florida has, if you have to. Home school, if you have to.
Do whatever it takes, but protect your children from these vax mongers who are putting power and profits ahead of the best interests of children. And the rest of us.
