(Children’s Health Defense) – In a podcast episode released Tuesday, New York Times best-selling author, Alex Berenson, who was permanently suspended from Twitter, appeared on “The Joe Rogan Experience” for a wide-ranging, 3-hour discussion on COVID, vaccines and the pharmaceutical industry.
Berenson told Rogan the number of fully vaccinated people dying from COVID is rising, according to data in most countries. He pointed to what he claims is the best national data available, data from Israel and the U.K.
“The best data we have comes out of the U.K. and Israel,” Berenson said. “And in the U.K., at least 70% of the people who died from COVID in August were fully vaccinated, and that’s straight from British government documents.”
Berenson said Israel, which began vaccinating earlier than any other country, mandated a third, booster shot because data showed fully vaccinated people were losing their immunity and dying from COVID.
Berenson said the third shot “drives up protection in the short term, but we don’t know what the consequences of a third shot in the long term. At the moment when Israel deemed every citizen without three shots unvaccinated, there were only safety and efficacy data on a third shot for about 36 people.”
This lack of data is why the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) couldn’t approve COVID boosters for everyone, and instead limited its approval of the third shots for people over age 65 and those considered “high risk” because of “institutional or occupational exposure.”
Berenson also discussed the debate between vaccine immunity versus natural immunity, pointing to the Israeli paper which showed natural immunity is much longer lasting than vaccine immunity.
“It turns out that there’s always a price for messing with nature. So you get this really high surge of antibodies, that’s much higher than the level that you’d get by natural infection but it declines really fast … So there’s a really good paper that came out of Israel which showed that natural antibodies fall about 5% or 10 percent a month, while vaccine-induced immunity falls more than 40% per month.”
Research also shows natural immunity is more robust than vaccine-induced immunity, Berenson said.
“Vaccine immunity is also tailored to one single part of the spike protein, so if the virus mutates just a little bit, that vaccine immunity no longer works, while with natural immunity, it is much more robust and affords immunity to many different kinds of COVID,” Berenson said.
According to Berenson, another paper out of Japan demonstrated that only four relatively small mutations on Sars-CoV-2 can lead to a failure of vaccine-generated immunity, but people who become naturally infected remain protected from these small mutations.
Citing the science on natural infection, Rogan criticized the policy of mandates:
“Folks be really clear about this, vaccine mandates are a form of control. If you got your shots in January, your immunity, by all official science, is waning now, but you can still go wherever you want, but someone who got COVID a couple of weeks ago and has rock solid antibodies isn’t allowed to go anywhere indoors, I have a real concern about this.”
Berenson agreed the “vaccine mandates have absolutely nothing to do with medical realities.”
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.

Berenson also discussed his surprise with the political left, which is normally very critical of corporate power and the sinister nature of industry influence over public policy. He gave Merck’s Vioxx as an example of how the industry is not our friend.
“I’m so struck by the left’s willingness to buy into the narrative that the pharmaceutical industry is selling,” Berenson said. “This is an industry that knowingly killed, according to the FDA’s own estimate, 55,000 people by heart attack, profited from it and then covered it up.”
Berenson covered Vioxx lawsuits for the New York Times in the early 2000’s. “So do not tell me these companies are our friends,” he said.
The award-winning author told Rogan why he believes he’s so disliked by his colleagues in the media industrial complex:
“This is the first time in history that the most educated and wealthier type of people have said ‘I wanna be the guinea pig,’ and now some of those people are finding out that maybe it wasn’t the smartest decision, and those people were publicly desperate to get vaccinated. And those people hate me, because I went to Yale, I worked for the New York Times, these people see me as a traitor to the class.”
