    Trump: What vaccine? I'm already immune! I don't know any vaccine!

  3. Avatar

    If he tells someone they are immune, as he did in that clip, and they get sick and die, does anyone know the legal implications? Like if I tell someone its completely safe to cross a railroad crossing when the fence and lights are down and flashing, I would be arrested and without a really good lawyer, be jailed. We have a young lady in jail now because she suggested someone kill their self and they did. What if a President tells someone they are immune to a deadly virus and they die as a result?

    Calm down, have no political stance, and then think about the problem. If President Trump does not shut down flights from China, what will happen to the United States? Biden is opposed. If President Trump does not shut down flights from Europe, the United States What will it be like? Why is the Democrats’ turf plague so severe and the death toll the most? You just need to think from a fair and reasonable perspective

    Nothing peculiar since me also can be sick or release H1N1 after ingested white egg.
    The cure in my vk profile or look for Granny Method since allergic patient already proven were the source of coronavirus and flu pandemic.
    Why now? Cos American won't get the cure, if Trump not infected.
    What originated from bats?
    But this animal dont exist in desert nor dying like human and camel, during flu pandemic hitting Arab region.
    That mean between camel or human, you need to pick one, which also the culprit that Infected the other 3 livestock (pig, duck and chicken)
    This thing still need to ask or where cov19 originated, if only human were dying?
    Somemore doctors nowadays indeed behave like joker insense Ebola, they said originated from bat and SARS, those jokers also said it come from bats.
    Then what about COV19?
    Even kids aware, why joker must blame batman lol..
    (refer link in my profile/video or Google "Danny Woo Vk'' in Bing if link already broken/missing)
    And always remember,
    Coronavirus don't have cure or medicine not working, based on patients in China that dropping like flies even clinic still open.
    Trump? His pore holes sudden reopen, not due to medicine. The reason exist in my vk profile

    A fully distributed vaccine will take 6 to 12 months FROM ITS APPROVAL. Trump wants HERD IMMUNITY, which will expose seniors in massive numbers. 10% of seniors die from covid while survivors are debilitated.

  19. Avatar

    Seniors die of covid at alarming rates. Trump & Dr Scott Atlas intend to implement HERD IMMUNITY in 2021. Between approval of a vaccine & its distribution, CDC predicts 6 to 12 months.

  20. Avatar

    Seniors should be provided with vaccines now as a top priority even though these vaccines are still yet to be approved. If they are dying, why not give it a try since they are dying anyway? Trump used it for himself. What the hell do you have to lose?

    Praying for all who lost family, friends, homes, businesses, animals, etc., during these devastating end times. Praying for God's mercy on all! Revelation 1:7, "Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen. Nahum 1:3, "The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, And will not at all acquit the wicked: The LORD hath His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, And the clouds are the dust of His feet." Psalms 148:8, "Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling His word:" Revelation 14:7, " Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9, "And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power;"

    Stop lying to public, trump. There’s no evidence having it confers immunity at all. It might confer immunity temporarily but that’s not same herd immunity. It’s like yelling “Fire” in the crowded movie theater. He should be imprisoned for callous indifference and negligent homicide.

    President Trump
    is living proof that something works,
    in perfect health for a 70 year old man,
    what ever the
    Medical Doctor Experts at the
    Walter Reed National Memorial Hospital
    gave to President Trump
    was indeed effective,
    and must be considered a cure,
    the fact that these other
    Pharmaceuticals cannot duplicate
    the results of
    the Walter Reed Hospital Experts,
    simply means that not all
    Medical Doctors are created equal.
    We must remember that the skill
    levels between Medical Doctors can
    also include Quacks, who practice
    medicine in the United States without
    proper training, many of these Quacks might come from, Wuhan, China or
    even New Delhi, India that make their way into the U.S. medical practice,
    concerning the Coronavirus,
    the better question to ask, is
    How many Quacks are practicing medicine in the U.S.?

    Please read everyone….
    "Most people cannot see that it (totalitarianism) is happening, for the simple reason that it is happening to them. They are literally unable to recognize it. They cannot perceive the totalitarianism that is taking shape now, right in front of their faces (or, rather, right inside their minds). Nor can they perceive the delusional nature of the official “Covid-19” narrative.
    Such people are neither ignorant nor stupid. They have been successfully initiated into a cult, which is essentially what totalitarianism is, albeit on a societal scale.
    Their initiation into the Covidian (covid19) Cult began in January, when the medical authorities and corporate media turned on The Fear with projections of hundreds of millions of deaths and fake photos of people dropping dead in the streets. The psychological conditioning has continued for months. The global masses have been subjected to a constant stream of propaganda, manufactured hysteria, wild speculation, conflicting directives, exaggerations, lies, and tawdry theatrical effects. Lockdowns. Emergency field hospitals and morgues. The singing-dancing NHS staff. Death trucks. Overflowing ICUs. Dead Covid babies. Manipulated statistics. Goon squads. Masks. And all the rest of it.
    The “science” argument is officially over. An increasing number of doctors and medical experts are breaking ranks and explaining how the current mass hysteria over “cases” (which now includes perfectly healthy people) is essentially meaningless propaganda, for example, in this segment on ARD, one of the big mainstream German TV channels.
    And then there is the existence of Sweden, and other countries which are not playing ball with the official Covid-19 narrative, which makes a mockery of the ongoing hysteria.
    While it is crucial to continue waking up as many people as possible — which is becoming increasingly difficult due to the censorship of alternative and social media — it is important to accept what we are up against. What we are up against is not a misunderstanding or a rational argument over scientific facts. It is a fanatical ideological movement. A global totalitarian movement … the first of its kind in human history.
    And thus, the cult/culture paradigm has been inverted. Instead of the cult existing as an island within the dominant culture, the cult has become the dominant culture, and those of us (the logic-minded critical thinkers) who have not joined the cult have become the isolated islands within it."

    I would not trust a vaccine about a man-made virus they know nothing about. And I’m definitely not gonna trust Johnson and Johnson didn’t they just paid 100 and millions of dollars because of a cancer causing chemical in their product that they knew about and we’re going to trust them with a vaccine.

    There is no virus outbreak: Anyone, regardless of their age, education level, or gender, who thinks that a magical bat virus is floating around the world endangering the human species is a sad, sad fool. Anyone who propagates this blasphemy is either a paid crook, or getting other kickbacks for spitting in the face of God/shamming the Creator. What is your excuse? 2020 is more than half over; anyone reading this comment has sufficient time to become self-educated and do your own research. You cannot, in human history, catch a virus. Not now, or ever.

    Germs Do Not Cause Disease: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqWK6uaSN-0

    You Cannot Catch a 'Virus'. The myth of contagion is based on 1864 writings by Louis Pasteur. Louis Pasteur was proven wrong and exposed as a fraud multiple times, including in two documents — "Béchamp or Pasteur? A Lost Chapter in the History of Biology", by Ethel Douglas Hume (1923) and "Pasteur: Plagiarist & Impostor — The Germ Theory Exploded", by R.B. Pearson (1942). Furthermore, a "virus" does not have metabolism, a necessary component of all living matter. A "virus" is nothing more than dead, inactive, cellular debris. Because a "virus" is produced within the isopathic terrain of one's own immunology, wearing a mask is unnecessary. Not only is wearing a mask unnecessary, wearing a mask causes lung acidosis – this is wherein the waste particles are recycled into your immune system instead of being excreted into the atmosphere, which causes lung infections and throat infections. Wearing a mask is a slow way of killing yourself, in addition to terrorizing everyone around you. Since you cannot catch a virus, wearing a mask is unnecessary, excessive, and demonstrably ignorant.


    The Center for Disease Control, United Nations, and World Health Organization are criminal organizations who create diseases (out of thin air) in order to justify their continued existence. They suppress natural cures for cancer (of which there are 300+) because they will make less money when chemotherapy is abandoned, put parents into jail after newborn babies die from adverse vaccine reactions (and call it "shaken baby syndrome", "sudden infant death syndrome" etc.), and hunt down, discredit, and kill all-natural/homeopathic healers who understand how to heal the body (from any illness). Use these resources to educate yourself and those you love about the myth of contagion. That way, you can protect yourself and those closest to you from being exploited in a very duplicitous and irreversible manner.

    If you would personally like more resources, contact me at: ogbebop(at)optonline(dot)net

    Ultimately, this represents is a mere phase in the on-going battle for the soul (psyche) of Humanity: God is Perfect, and contagious diseases do not even exist! All severe life-threatening illnesses which are thought to be caused by (re: blamed on) germs/bacteria are in fact caused by imbalance, since All-Health is contingent upon the level of toxicity in the organism: this means that every individual is responsible for their own health, AND every individual has the power to lead a healthy life-style without relying on doctors, pharmacists, and psychiatrists. However, the belief that germs "cause disease" suggest the Kingdom of God is flawed, leading to two conclusions: One, God does not exist/God is Dead, or Two: If God does exist, this God is imperfect, irresponsible, and prone to error.

    Both statements are wrong.

    All things in nature are perfect as they are. It is only when deficiency, excess, or toxicity are introduced into the terrain (environment) by the organism itself does illness appear, at which point germs and bacteria can only be affects, not causes. The hoax that "viruses can be caught" is a theological prompt meant to estrange the soul (psyche) of Humanity from God, but the connection to God of every soul is eternal and unbroken, either by "Death" or Reincarnation. The hoax is demeaning because it says that "human beings are filthy", etc.

    Any religious figure who promotes this nonsense (televangelists, Jorge Mario Bergoglio) are popularizing Atheism/Neo-Fatalism/Nihilism, and they are doing it through a doctrine (indoctrination) of FEAR.

    God is Perfect. Germs Do Not Cause Disease. All Is Well.

    Interesting, as soon as Trump recovered and made the antibody drug avaialable for free, the clinical trials of antibody drug is halted due to unknown illness discovered ?! As soon as Trump promoted HCQ, “researches” started to show grave effects of the drug despite it having been around for 80+ years and having been on the safest drug list of WHO (until the pandemic) ! Fear is the best tool to control you, and they know it best !

    You know it’s bad if Phase 3 trials are paused. It’s good that safety measures are being put in place but this is bad news for COVID since it means we will be dealing with this.
    People are being too lenient with this pandemic and people aren’t taking safety procedures seriously.
    People aren’t wearing masks and some aren’t wearing it properly.
    People need to realize 1 infected person can trigger an exponential explosion of others getting infected and spreading it.
