For a while, I used to like listening to Ben Shapiro. I do not want to sound too political, but I thought his ideology was more toward libertarianism, but his stand on vaccination makes is clear that he is not really for the rights of the individual.
You can watch his comments here:
The woman who called was very courageous. I applaud her 😊
Unfortunately, he parrots the same old crappy science.
It is obvious that he does not know what he is talking about.
First, about half of the vaccines are derived from or contains human embryonic cells.
Those cells are harvested from aborted fetuses.
Some others claim that because those human embryonic cell lines were generated in the 60s, it is acceptable to use them to make vaccines for the greater good.
In other words, it’s been 60 years, so who cares babies were killed back then?
This is called justification and is the primary enemy of our mind.
I wrote a blog post on this topic:
As I said, human aborted fetuses are still being used today in the production and research on new vaccines.
Below are some of the latest examples, from 2018, not from the 60s like some pro-vaccines would like us to believe.
Numerous current studies describe how humanized mice injected with fetal tissue are used to study vaccine immunological reactions to HIV virus, Ebola, influenza virus, West Nile virus, dengue virus, and more.
In their 2018 paper, the University of Colorado scientists describe Hu-BLT mice as a “human surrogate model for future testing of the vaccine and antiviral therapeutic candidates” for the Zika virus.
In another paper, A collaborative team from Princeton University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard Medical School, and the University of Pennsylvania describe “human-like vaccine responses” to yellow-fever virus vaccine in humanized mice in their study published in the journal Nature earlier this year. The research was funded with a taxpayer grant from the National Institutes of Health and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, among other funders.
The title is
“Selective expansion of myeloid and NK cells in humanized mice yields human-like vaccine responses.”
Here’s what the authors say:
Human fetal livers (16–22 weeks of gestational age) were procured from Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), Inc. (Alameda, CA). The fetal liver was homogenized and incubated in digestion medium (HBSS) with 0.1% collagenase IV (Sigma-Aldrich, Darmstadt, Germany), 40 mM HEPES, 2 M CaCl2, and 2 U/ml DNAse I (Roche, Basel, Switzerland) for 30 min at 37 °C. Human CD34+ HSC was isolated using a CD34+ HSC isolation kit (Stem Cell Technologies, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) according to the manufacturer’s protocol.
1–5 days old xenorecipient mice were irradiated with 300 cGy, and 1.5–2 × 105 human CD34+ HSC were injected intrahepatically 4–6 h after irradiation. Male and female mice transplanted with CD34+ HSC derived from various human donors were used in this study.
In order words, they harvested human fetal cells from 16-22 weeks old fetuses are injected into mice to create “humanized mice.”
This a methodology that has been used several times across the world, and it is the new way to study vaccines.
You see, human aborted fetuses are still being used today as you read these words for the research of new vaccines.
This is very upsetting! As Christians, we should be very concerned with the killing of babies for the sake of vaccine research.
Clearly, Ben is not aware that human fetuses are still being used for vaccine production and development as of 2020. It does not make sense if he is really against abortion…
This makes his arguments illogical…
Second, he parrots the same old herd immunity argument, that we know is nonsense.
After all, it is not really his fault, his wife is a medical doctor, and they are brainwashed to believe vaccines work and are necessary.
I have blogged several times about this concept:
So far, I have identified more than 95 instances where herd immunity completely failed in fully populations. 95!!
In science, you just need one observation to refute a hypothesis, but the vaccine pushers do not understand this simple scientific concept, which I explained in detail before.
Even with 95 examples of failed immunity, they still believe in this concept! And they say that we are the ones who do not understand science! lol
The herd immunity theory was originally coined in 1933 by a researcher called Hedrich. He had been studying measles patterns in the US between 1900-1931 (years before any vaccine was ever invented for measles), and he observed that epidemics of the illness only occurred when less than 68% of children had developed a natural immunity to it.
This was based upon the principle that children build their own immunity after suffering from or being exposed to the disease.
So, the herd immunity theory was, in fact, about natural
disease processes and nothing to do with vaccination. If 68% of the population
were allowed to build their own natural defenses, there would be no raging
Later on, vaccinologists adopted the phrase and increased the figure from 68% to 95% with NO scientific justification as to why, and then stated that there had to be 95% vaccine coverage to achieve immunity. Essentially, they took Hedrich’s study and manipulated it to promote their vaccination programs.
But this theory relies on actual immunity. And people forget vaccination, as a flawed practice, cannot create actual immunity in everyone.
After the measles vaccine was licensed in 1963, the medical community declared a goal of eradicating measles by 1967.
But 1967 came and went, and it still wasn’t gone, 1977, 1987, 2000….the dates kept getting pushed, and the result was always the same.
Meanwhile, they continued to increase the hypothesized “herd
immunity threshold,” eventually winding up at the extremely high 95% you hear
But NO study has ever proven this concept. There is no reason as to why they chose 95%, none.
Actually, the only reason is they realized that 80% was not enough, then 90% was not enough, and now they believe 95% is necessary.
Today, they are pushing 100% of the population to be vaccinated.
The reality is vaccine-induced immunity cannot create the same results that NATURAL immunity, the real basis for the theory of the herd. Therefore, herd immunity doesn’t actually apply to vaccines. 100% compliance with vaccines will never eliminate outbreaks of diseases like measles, mumps, influenza, or pertussis.
“Herd immunity” is not achievable by vaccines because.:
A) vaccine-induced antibodies wane.
B) Some people are low responders (antibodies made are low).
C) vaccine failure, the vaccine is not as effective as claimed.
D) Some vaccines give you the virus, and you shed that virus after you get vaccinated. An individual vaccinated against a disease can spread the disease when the virus or other microbes in the vaccine sheds.
E) There are outbreaks among highly vaccinated populations, and the vaccinated get the disease.
Vaccine failures caused by vaccine-induced evolution are under the same natural selection. These drops in vaccine effectiveness are incited by changes in pathogen populations that the vaccines themselves directly cause. “I think the scientific community is becoming increasingly aware that vaccine resistance is a real risk,” said Dr. David Kennedy, a scientist from Penn State.
Even if 100% of our population is vaccinated for measles, it will never leave completely because of 3 reasons: primary vaccine failure, secondary vaccine failure, and risk groups that cannot be vaccinated.
- Primary vaccine failure is the
percentage of vaccinated individuals that never produce sufficient antibodies
to protect them from the disease, even with boosters (extra doses). According
to Dr. Gregory Poland, this is thought to be a genetic circumstance. And this
number varies depending on the vaccine: for measles, it’s as high as 10%, for
mumps more than 15%, for pertussis near 20%. For influenza, because of mismatched
strains, up to 75% of vaccinated people are unprotected! This means if you are
a primary non-responders, you are walking around every day with a false sense
of security, clinically unvaccinated for that particular disease.
- Secondary vaccine failure describes
a concept known as waning immunity. ALL vaccines wane over time. There is not a
single vaccine that creates lifelong immunity. This timeframe also varies
depending on the vaccine: for pertussis (whooping cough), it is 2-3 years, for
measles around 15, and everything else is somewhere in between. So, this means
many of you are reading this, well, probably all of you have lost your
vaccine-induced immunity for common communicable diseases.
- Risks groups for the vaccine, groups who cannot receive the live virus vaccine because of potential harm, include immunocompromised individuals, those allergic to particular components, pregnant women, and children under 1. According to Dr. Poland, “this leaves a large enough segment of the population susceptible and unprotected, and such cases of measles in the vaccinated will continue to occur.”
The vaccine failure for measles is 10%. In other words, even if 100% of the population is vaccinated against measles, 90% would have immunity. Not enough to obtain 95%, which they keep saying is necessary for herd immunity.
The vaccine failure for mumps is 12%, and DTap is 20%.
You see, even in fully vaccinated populations, the herd immunity would never ever obtainable!
But for some reason, the vaccine pushers can’t do maths. Not sure why they do not get this very elementary concept. Even my daughter, who is 10, understand this simple mathematical equation 😊
As I was reading the comment section of Ben’s video, I came across this comment from this ICU nurse:
“Where there is any
risk, there must be a choice. It’s called informed consent.
If there is a risk at all to any procedure, the patient has to be able to decide whether or not they’re going to get it (in a free society). If people who are for vaccines 100% of the time are upset that someone else would decline, why are they upset? If vax’s work, the vast majority of the time, you have absolutely nothing to worry about.
Probably 90% of people reading this aren’t up to date according to the current childhood schedule so unless you’re up to date you’re essentially an anti-vaxxer 🤷♀️ You can’t mandate something on other people’s kids when you yourself had like five shots as a kid (I was born in 1984 and had six shots)
The ONLY somewhat, maybe, sorta kinda reasonable thing I’ve heard about all this is about the immunocompromised, but having worked with the MOST immunocompromised people (transplant and chemo patients), I know for a fact they’re not worried about whether or not other people vaccinate. They’re wearing masks in public, washing hands a bazillion times a day, and not even eating raw produce for fear of germs. They are not scared of only the 16 illnesses we vaccinate for considering there are thousands of other illnesses out there (many of which have a higher death rate than the illnesses we vaccinate for today had BEFORE the vaccine even existed)…..so I don’t really buy this argument for them being mandatory.”
I really hope Ben will either stop talking about something he has no idea about or that he educates himself and becomes a real libertarian and defends the rights of the individual. Otherwise, his whole ideology falls about because of his stand on vaccination.
God bless y’all 🙂
