The BMJ Editor in Chief Knew Exactly What Would Happen with the Vaccines 4 Months Before Authorization

ER Editor: As a sidenote, Godlee stepped down at BMJ editor-in-chief at the end of last year.


The BMJ Editor-in-Chief, Fiona Godlee, knew exactly what was going to happen with the vaccines 4 months before a single one was authorized. How did she know?/BMJ


This is amazing. BMJ Editor Godlee knew in August 2020, when the phase 3 vaccine trials were just getting started, that the vaccines:

a) would not be very effective

b) would likely just decrease severity of illness and not prevent infection

c) might become a suboptimal, chronic treatment, and

d) might change the definition of what we consider a vaccine to be.

How did she know this?  I imagine she knew it from a whistleblower or two or ten.  The public certainly didn’t know it. If she knew it, Fauci knew it, along with his Corona Task Force of useful idiots.

“Few can doubt that we need a vaccine for covid-19 as soon as possible, and great strides are being made, including in our understanding of the immunology of SARS-CoV-2.1 But what damage may result from the race to create one? The World Health Organization has produced guidance on minimum characteristics for a vaccine, including 50% efficacy, temperature stability, potential for rapid scale-up, and proper evaluation against comparators. But, writes Els Torreele, these basic requirements are being rapidly eroded by the prevailing view that anything is better than nothing.2 So instead we are heading for vaccines that reduce severity of illness rather than protect against infection, provide only short lived immunity, and will at best have been trialled by the manufacturer against placebo. As well as damaging public confidence and wasting global resources by distributing a poorly effective vaccine, this could change what we understand a vaccine to be. Instead of long term, effective disease prevention it could become a suboptimal chronic treatment. This would be good for business but bad for global public health.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
