Last week a college student (with a rich uncle) made $110 million by investing in struggling US retailer Bed Bath and Beyond.
BBB’s shares were at a rock bottom $5.50, but the ‘savvy’ student invested $25 million in July which sparked market interest. The share price surged to $27, and then last Tuesday the student sold his stock for $130 million. BBB shares plummeted back down.
This phenomenon, known as meme-investing, relies on small investors tracking big investors and then making identical but small scale stock purchases themselves which drives the price up even further. Their aim is to make money on the coattails of the rich by guessing when to sell out in time. Inevitably, all but a lucky few small investors lose their stake. The wealthy investor, who initiates the scheme and chooses his time to sell, makes a massive profit.
You can see that this sort of investment strategy does not rely on any real information about the underlying strength or weakness of the company being targeted. It simply relies on the initial large stock purchase, the willingness of some small investors to join in the speculation, and then the gullibility of a great many others who believe the initial large upward stock movements point to a real value for the company. They are the ones who eventually lose out.
Cut back to the pandemic
Pfizer, Moderna and others announced that their vaccines were highly effective. Figures around 95% were quoted. Consequently the general public believed that the mRNA technology really worked and saved lives. There was instant mass acceptance, governments bought the vaccines thinking they were investing in public health, and also granted indemnity to big pharma.
Just as was the case with mom and pop investors buying rising stocks, there was no indication that there were any risks for the end user.
The eventual pharmaceutical company profits were massive.
The general public thought that a 95% figure meant that 95 out of every 100 people would be protected from infection (apparently very favourable odds). What Pfizer and others didn’t say was that 95% was actually a relative reduction in risk. The absolute reduction in risk of infection measured in the vaccine trials was 0.86%, meaning that only 1 out of every 119 people would be able to avoid infection specifically as a result of the vaccine. Pfizer hid this information. View this link here to watch a UK consultant cardiologist on prime time television explaining the sleight of hand involved.
Crucially Pfizer also hid the fact that the trials did not show that the vaccine would reduce the risk of hospitalisation or death, but instead caused serious adverse effects.
The stage was set for a massive misunderstanding and a catastrophic tragedy. Something that is only coming to light as the casualties and the infection rates reach successive peaks irrespective of high vaccination rates.
There never was an underlying value to the technology, and the risks were huge. There are now record levels of all cause mortality and it is not related to Covid infection. Draw your own conclusions.
No worries for Pfizer, Moderna, and their pals though, the profit is already in the bank. It is more than enough to cover any lawsuits if they ever do get to a court.
What is the outcome?
Last week Newshub ran a piece drawing on multiple sources reporting that Kiwis are currently seven times sicker than before the pandemic. The incidence of seasonal flu, gastro bugs, respiratory illness, cough, fever, runny nose, conjunctivitis, sore throats, even foot and mouth disease are all at record levels. The piece reports that it is not due to Covid, Covid cases are currently at their lowest level since February.
Even more concerning, excess all-cause deaths are at all-time record highs and rising.
Vaccinologist and government advisor Dr. Helen Petousis-Harris said on the Newshub piece “our immunity against a whole lot of things is a little [???] bit down because we haven’t been constantly, I feel like, primed all the time. We’ve got lots and lots of different viruses coming over [from where??].” The answer according to Dr. Petousis-Harris is to “stay at home, mask-up, and keep your distance from others”. Sound familiar?
Are you, like me, a little puzzled by what Dr Petousis-Harris said? She feels like we haven’t been constantly primed?? Is that sufficient to explain a seven times increased incidence of viral illness and record levels of all cause mortality, or is it even scientific? I don’t think so.
In fact if you look at the UK ONS figures, as we have done in our last two Hatchard Report releases, it is apparent that high all cause mortality has affected the vaccinated but not the unvaccinated.
It is only a short step to realise, correctly, that the immunity of the vaccinated has declined sharply. The truth appears to be—the vaccinated have been primed to be constantly sick.
Who is to blame?
Our government is keeping quiet and its experts are offering rather vague excuses and encouraging us to continue to follow everything that Pfizer recommends.
Open any media page and the chances are the government will be offering you advice. Today, on opening the New Zealand Herald front page, the government was advertising these encouragements to have another booster.
“The second booster will:
- Make you less likely to go to hospital
- Give you greater immunity against Covid-19, including Omicron
- Boost your immune response back to previous levels”
We have the world’s highest Covid vaccination rates, our hospitals are overwhelmed, our Omicron case rates have been the highest in the world, and we are seven times more likely to fall sick. So do you believe the government? Or do you think that another booster might be a risky investment?
Clearly those who kept secret key aspects of the Covid vaccine trial data are culpable. But why, as the full data is gradually being released by court order, is our government still following Pfizer’s lead?
The wheels of justice are slow to turn. It is often remarked that not enough people speak up publicly. If you see something, say something.
What are the lessons here?
The Christchurch earthquake a few years back was a salutary reminder to take care of our foundations. If the foundations are cracked or resting on unstable ground your home is at risk. If you neglect the foundations of life, your life might get shaken.
DNA is the physical foundation of life. Altering it, or altering the way it works, as mRNA vaccines do, is so dangerous that it puts the whole structure of life at risk. It was a foolhardy enterprise from the start, one from which those who invested their faith were bound to lose out.
Biotechnology experimentation has to be controlled now if we are ever to exit the pandemic era.
There are also psychological lessons to be learned. For two years the whole world has been marooned in a state of fight or flight, unable to calm down because the fear-based information that is being made available to them is misleading and often false. Availability of truth is the psychological counterpart of physical genetic stability. Take that away and life rapidly loses its anchor.
Truth has become an unstable commodity, like the stock market, easily manipulated without reference to its real underlying value.
Every culture and religion in the world espouses a philosophy of right and wrong. Doing the right thing, being honest and truthful, are foundational principles of life.
If we allow ourselves to be governed solely by self interest irrespective of social interest and morality, we have missed the point of life. Inevitably society will begin to disintegrate. If we blindly follow others based on authority or hope, we can easily be misled and then disappointed or worse.
Covid mRNA vaccination has turned out to be a health market manipulation on a global scale. The health of millions has been affected or put at risk by a simple scam, and we still don’t know the extent of the final outcome. The real valuable currencies of life are truth and genetic stability. Both have to be recaptured and protected. That is our task.
