Fact Checking Politifact & Intro to the Immune System
This is going to be a very short article. I am starting with some basic overview of the human immune system and then talking about a Politifact Check. This article will not go into the detail necessary to show where I’m going with all of this but will begin to lay the groundwork for the fact pattern I will eventually provide that will demonstrate indisputably that the jabs are poison and the people producing them knew it before they put them out.
Immune System Overview
In terms of the immune system, let’s start with this from the Cleveland Clinic explaining what the immune system is in very basic terms (This info and more can be found at: https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/articles/21196-immune-system):
What is the immune system?
Your immune system is a large network of organs, white blood cells, proteins (antibodies) and chemicals. This system works together to protect you from foreign invaders (bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi) that cause infection, illness and disease.
What are the parts of the immune system?
Your immune system is made of up a complex collection of cells and organs. They all work together to protect you from germs and help you get better when you’re sick. The main parts of the immune system are:
White blood cells: Serving as an army against harmful bacteria and viruses, white blood cells search for, attack and destroy germs to keep you healthy. White blood cells are a key part of your immune system. There are many white blood cell types in your immune system. Each cell type either circulates in your bloodstream and throughout your body or resides in a particular tissue, waiting to be called into action. Each cell type has a specific mission in your body’s defense system. Each has a different way of recognizing a problem, communicating with other cells on the defense team and performing their function.
Lymph nodes: These small glands filter and destroy germs so they can’t spread to other parts of your body and make you sick. They also are part of your body’s lymphatic system. Lymph nodes contain immune cells that analyze the foreign invaders brought into your body. They then activate, replicate and send the specific lymphocytes (white blood cells) to fight off that particular invader. You have hundreds of lymph nodes all over your body, including in your neck, armpits, and groin. Swollen, tender lymph nodes are a clue that your body is fighting an infection.
Spleen: Your spleen stores white blood cells that defend your body from foreign invaders. It also filters your blood, destroying old and damaged red blood cells.
Tonsils and adenoids: Because they are located in your throat and nasal passage, tonsils and adenoids can trap foreign invaders (for example, bacteria or viruses) as soon as they enter your body. They have immune cells that produce antibodies to protect you from foreign invaders that cause throat and lung infections.
Thymus: This small organ in your upper chest beneath your breast bone helps mature a certain type of white blood cell. The specific task of this cell is to learn to recognize and remember an invader so that an attack can be quickly mounted the next time this invader is encountered.
Bone marrow: Stem cells in the spongy center of your bones develop into red blood cells, plasma cells and a variety of white blood cells and other types of immune cells. Your bone marrow makes billions of new blood cells every day and releases them into your bloodstream.
Skin, mucous membranes and other first-line defenses: Your skin is the first line of defense in preventing and destroying germs before they enter your body. Skin produces oils and secretes other protective immune system cells. Mucous membranes line the respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive tracts. These membranes secrete mucus, which lubricates and moistens surfaces. Germs stick to mucus in the respiratory tract and then are moved out of the airways by hair-like structures called cilia. Tiny hairs in your nose catch germs. Enzymes found in sweat, tears, saliva and mucus membranes as well as secretions in the vagina all defend and destroy germs.
Stomach and bowel: Stomach acid kills many bacteria soon after they enter your body. You also have beneficial (good) bacteria in your intestines that kill harmful bacteria.
I’ve looked at a ton of general explanations of the immune system and felt this was the best for purposes of making my points. Within the immune system I also want to provide some information on the white blood cells. Remember, the white blood cells are generally responsible for dealing with the things from your body that make you sick. I found a good overview of the different types of white blood cells at https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/327446 and key to this conversation is the following:
Health professionals have identified three main categories of white blood cell: granulocytes, lymphocytes, and monocytes. The sections below discuss these in more detail.
Granulocytes are white blood cells that have small granules containing proteins. There are three types of granulocyte cells:
Basophils: These represent less than 1%Trusted Source of white blood cells in the body and are typically present in increased numbers after an allergic reaction.
Eosinophils: These are responsible for responding to infections that parasites cause. They also play a role in the general immune response, as well as the inflammatory response, in the body.
Neutrophils: These represent the majorityTrusted Source of white blood cells in the body. They act as scavengers, helping surround and destroy bacteria and fungi that may be present in the body.
These white blood cells include the following:
B cells: Also known as B-lymphocytes, these cells produce antibodies to help the immune system mount a response to infection.
T cells: Also known as T-lymphocytes, these white blood cells help recognize and remove infection-causing cells.
Natural killer cells: These cells are responsible for attacking and killing viral cells, as well as cancer cells.
Monocytes are white blood cells that make up around 2–8% of the total white blood cell count in the body. These are present when the body fights off chronic infections.
They target and destroy cells that cause infections.
The study of the human immune system is incredibly complex. There is a TON to know and I will continue building on these basics in future articles. That said, the vaccines have been alleged to cause problems with the natural immune system. These allegations are almost certainly true and were also almost certainly known long ago. As a teaser for some of what I will be doing with this going forward I’m going to touch on this next.
Politifact Check & the Spike
Against the backdrop of the complexity of the human immune system I want to provide an example of how “science” is being perverted by the “fact checkers” using complex fact patterns that people only get half of the truth from. Enter Politifact. Please take a look at this fact-check by Politifact - part of the Poynter Institute which is funded by TONS of big-pharma monsters like Bill Gates (https://www.gatesfoundation.org/about/committed-grants/2015/11/opp1138320). Despite the absurd conflicts of interest the Poynter Institute and Politifact are frequently pointed to by mainstream media as “credible”. The summary of the Politifact article is here:
IF YOUR TIME IS SHORT
Findings from a lab-based study claiming that the spike protein of the COVID-19 virus causes DNA damage have been used to raise concerns about COVID-19 vaccine safety.
COVID-19 vaccines use a modified version of the spike protein that functions differently from what is programmed by the COVID-19 virus's genetic material.
Results need to be replicated in live animal or human studies to confirm clinical and physiological relevance.
The Politifact article references this article: https://www.mdpi.com/1999-4915/13/10/2056, titled SARS–CoV–2 Spike Impairs DNA Damage Repair and Inhibits V(D)J Recombination In Vitro. The summary of this study is:
Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS–CoV–2) has led to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID–19) pandemic, severely affecting public health and the global economy. Adaptive immunity plays a crucial role in fighting against SARS–CoV–2 infection and directly influences the clinical outcomes of patients. Clinical studies have indicated that patients with severe COVID–19 exhibit delayed and weak adaptive immune responses; however, the mechanism by which SARS–CoV–2 impedes adaptive immunity remains unclear. Here, by using an in vitro cell line, we report that the SARS–CoV–2 spike protein significantly inhibits DNA damage repair, which is required for effective V(D)J recombination in adaptive immunity. Mechanistically, we found that the spike protein localizes in the nucleus and inhibits DNA damage repair by impeding key DNA repair protein BRCA1 and 53BP1 recruitment to the damage site. Our findings reveal a potential molecular mechanism by which the spike protein might impede adaptive immunity and underscore the potential side effects of full-length spike-based vaccines.
This article was later retracted due to what I believe amounts to political pressure. Regardless, I want to focus on the Politifact nonsense and parts of the article which were not disputed.
The Politifact ruling on this article stated:
Blog posts claim that a recent paper shows evidence that the spike protein on the COVID-19 virus can cause DNA damage, raising concerns about COVID-19 vaccine safety.
The study, however, contradicts findings from previous studies that were also conducted on isolated cells in a lab environment. Until their results are replicated in human studies, this has limited bearing on COVID-19 vaccines.
We rate the claim Half True.
This is all meant to discredit anyone talking about this but is that appropriate? Let’s look at the facts.
Politifact does not challenge the findings of the study other than to suggest it conflicts with “other studies” that were conducted in Petri dishes. Essentially Politifact said, yes this study demonstrates that the spike can mess up DNA in the study but the study was done in a Petri dish and so that does not mean it would cause damage in the human body. Further - this could NEVER translate into an issue with the jabs because they use a modified spike (see below).
This is not unusual in science. Studies frequently contradict other studies and real scientists learn from all the info available and then run a new study based on that new info to learn why conflicts exist and how they can be resolved based on data. In this case, the study in question makes a point that Politifact does not really even attempt to contradict but, despite that, this shill organization tries to protect the “safety” of the COVID jabs. This is made worse when we look at number 2 below.
The entire purpose of this article is to suggest that it is ridiculous to question the safety of the COVID vaccines because this study does not apply. For reasons that do not relate to this article, I disagree that it is unreasonable to question whether the spike from the jabs. More importantly though, this article (which was published in 2021, indicates that Politifact was part of the fraud committed against the people of the world related to the vaccines.
You see, at that time Politifact was also busy lying about the ingredients in the vaccines. In this article that was used to attack Stew Peters in 2021 (I am not taking a position on the article or Stew’s claims here because it is unrelated), Politifact was busy talking about messenger RNA as an ingredient in the vaccines. They even point to the CDC (another group participating in the fraud). At the same time they admit repeatedly in the article - and even use as a mechanism to justify their point - that the mRNA is actually modified or modRNA. This is critical because messenger RNA and modRNA can have dramatically different properties and this point likely invalidates any studies they point to related to the spike in the same way it does the study they are “fact checking.”
Here is the article I wrote a bit ago breaking the news that this mRNA/modRNA fraud was factual:
This is a critical point because the fact that the fact checkers were lying to you in their fact check seems to discredit anything else they say doesn’t it?
The final major issue with this fact check is that despite the other issues it was simply called half true and that was supposed to be enough to discredit the entire thing. It is not. If it was half true then real scientists should have dropped everything to further investigate the potential safety issues related to that half truth. They should have had numerous additional studies and Politifact should have screamed from the rooftops that further investigation was warranted and that we should be extremely cautious about these poisons.
They didn’t and never do. Instead this was just part of a long line of lies by this Gates-funded group of liars. They took some complex science, found a scientist to say it may not be true, and then said see - we fact checked this so don’t worry about it. That is what now qualifies for science and fact checking and that is why these poisons are still on the market despite the fact that we continue to find more and more half and whole truths that clearly demonstrate that these modRNA poisons are not and have never been close to safe.
Going forward I will have a lot more on these topics. That said be patient. This stuff takes a while to dig out and decipher. It also takes an immense amount of work to ensure my points are next-to-impossible to undermine. That said, we will continue chasing the truth and sharing it far and wide and I expect that the truth will set us free.
