FORT MYERS, Florida, October 21, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. government will partner with CVS and Walgreens to “deliver” a free COVID-19 vaccine to the elderly in nursing homes, despite no coronavirus vaccine having yet been approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

This partnership is part of the U.S. government’s “Operation Warp Speed.” President Trump has repeatedly said the military will distribute the vaccine. 

According to the U. S. Department of Defense’s news release, the partnership between the government and the pharmacies is aimed at quickly and efficiently providing vaccinations for residents of long-term care homes. 

“Today I’m thrilled to announce we have just finalized a partnership with CVS and Walgreens…to immediately deliver the vaccine directly to nursing homes at no cost to our seniors,” the president said. “Once you have those vaccines, these are very effective, once you have those vaccines, you can open the doors and say ‘Here I am!’” he continued

 

The goal of Operation Warp Speed is to begin delivery of a vaccine by January 2021. The government’s program has been criticized by John Paul II Medical Research Institute founder, Dr. Alan Moy, as being too rushed to offer a safe, reliable, and ethical vaccine. In an August 26 article for LifeSiteNews, he wrote that the initiative “is placing all of its financial resources towards vaccine approaches that lack a track record of success.” He also expressed concern that animal trials are not required for vaccines developed under the program, noting that in previous preclinical studies, “some animals developed a more serious pneumonia with SARS vaccines when subsequently challenged with a live SARS virus than in non-vaccinated animals.” 

Further, the four vaccines funded through Operation Warp Speed that are currently furthest along in clinical trials make use of cell lines derived from aborted babies at some stage of their development and testing. AstraZeneca and Janssen Research, a division of Johnson & Johnson, both used aborted fetal cells in all stages of their vaccine’s development. Moderna and Pfizer’s vaccine has used them in confirmatory lab tests. Together, these four companies have received about $7 billion from Operation Warp Speed funding.

PETITION UPDATE (8/27/2020)

Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE this petition, which asks policymakers at all levels of government to reverse mandatory mask orders within their borders.

Facebook has restored the share link for this petition, saying that the decision to block it was a 'mistake...'

Please share with your Facebook friends, but we should all take heed of this warning: when an organization or individuals have to beg, plead and cajole just to express objective truths, it may be time to start looking for other social networking platforms.

Facebook needs to treat its users with respect, no matter their political persuasion. Moreover, Facebook needs to treat objective reality and facts with more respect.

One-size-fits-all oppressive government mask mandates must stop!

Healthy adults and children should not be forced - by the state - to wear masks when the risk of infection is low and the benefit of wearing a mask is highly questionable.

PETITION UPDATE (8/25/2020)

Facebook is actively censoring this petition, saying that some people find it 'abusive.'

How anyone could find alternate facts about oppressive mask mandates 'abusive' is incredible...that is, impossible to believe.

This is exactly the kind of censorship which Big Tech is getting a bad reputation for.

The fact that Facebook calls differing opinion and objective reality "abusive" says a lot about Facebook and their agenda to silence reason and logic, not just conservatives and Christians.

But, people are more intelligent than Facebook give them credit for.

And, the more this continues, the more reasonable people will look alternate platforms to share their thoughts and connect with their friends and family. The more that happens, the less revenue Facebook will generate.

All of us have a decision to make, and the time is coming where we might have to tell our Facebook friends that we are moving to another platform.

We are encouraging people to continue SIGNING this petition and SHARING it via other platforms such as Parler and Gab, and to share the link below with your family and friends on Whatsapp, Telegram, Threema and Signal.

Thank you!

One-size-fits-all oppressive government mask mandates must stop!

Healthy adults and children should not be forced - by the state - to wear masks when the risk of infection is low and the benefit of wearing a mask is highly questionable.

Please SIGN this petition which asks policymakers at all levels of government to reverse mandatory mask mandates within their borders

Public health policies should be based on science and logic, not on the type of political posturing and virtue-signaling which led Joe Biden to recently call for a national mask mandate.

And, public health policies certainly shouldn't lead to a situation where more people could become sick.

But, that is exactly what these mandatory mask mandates are doing.

Here are four inconvenient facts about masks:

1) Masks** are largely ineffective at stopping the transmission of viruses.

The vast majority of masks worn by the public are made from material which cannot filter-out viruses because virus particles are too small to catch or obstruct.  Wearing cloth masks to stop a virus is like putting a bee in a bird cage to keep it from flying away.

Wearing a mask for long periods of time ensures that the wearer has a warm and moist receptacle around his or her mouth, on which viruses and bacteria can land and accumulate.

Thus, masks are actually likely to have little effect in stopping the spread of COVID-19 acting as a barrier, but could actually make things worse acting as a receptacle.

2) Mandates which call for masks to be worn outdoors are both absurd and oppressive.

3) There are clearly documented hazards of wearing masks for long periods of time.

4) And, since school is on everyone's mind...

Notwithstanding the above information on the ineffectiveness of most masks against viruses, we don't know if asymptomatic children can even transmit the virus.

But, it was a reported in an article in the July 21, 2020 Uk Times that: "There has been no recorded case of a teacher catching the coronavirus from a pupil anywhere in the world, according to one of the UK government's leading scientific advisers."

And, we also know that children are extremely unlikely to get seriously ill or die from COVID infections. In any case, children cannot possibly be expected to wear a mask properly in a way that would cut transmission.

There are still a lot of unknowns about COVID-19, but we have grown in our understanding of this disease since the beginning of the crisis.

The knowledge we have gained should allow government and health authorities to make more nuanced policies than the current one-size-fits-all mask mandates.

Where are the legislative hearings in county commissions, and state, provincial or federal legislatures before these drastic actions are mandated? Where are the open and transparent debates among experts that provide our representatives with the necessary information to make good policy decisions?

The real pandemic is the panic and the resulting tyranny that is being caused by dictatorial governors, corporate media and the monopolistic Big Tech.

The truth is that COVID-19 is like a bad cold for most people; this is not ebola or the plague.

Of course, the very elderly and those with serious health conditions should take precautions or be quarantined, but the rest of society should begin the long process of returning to normality.

The frenzy to force everyone to wear a mask, at all times, has gone beyond all comprehension, and goes against science and logic.

Please SIGN this petition which asks policymakers at all levels of government to reverse any mandatory mask order within the borders of their county, state, province, or country.

Thank you!

Recently, Janssen research suspended its phase 3 trials due to “a serious medical complication in one of its participants, while AstraZeneca has resumed trials after pausing its trials when a participant fell ill.  

In addition to the noting the unethical use of aborted fetal tissue of the front-running vaccines, Moy expressed scepticism about their potential efficacy, especially for the old and immunocompromised. He emphasized that they are they are not designed to provide long-term immunity, and that patients will likely have to receive boosters. “If boosters are required, adenovirus-based vaccines, like those sponsored by Janssen and AstraZeneca, cannot be re-administered because prior exposure to the adenovirus vaccine will elicit an immune rejection against the vaccine, thereby deeming it ineffective,” he wrote.
