The Combination of Covid Infection + Covid "Vaccine" Actually Damages the Body's Immune Response, Study Claims

Hunt-and-kill anti-cancer cells deliver "spectacular" results.

Immune checkpoint inhibitors such as Keytruda and Opdivo work by unleashing the immune system's T cells to attack tumor cells. Their introduction a decade ago marked a major advance in cancer therapy, but only 10% to 30% of treated patients experience long-term improvement. In a paper published online today in The Journal of Clinical Investigation (JCI), scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine describe findings that could bolster the effectiveness of immune-checkpoint therapy.

Rather than rally T cells against cancer, the Einstein research team used different human immune cells known as natural killer (NK) cells--with dramatic results. "We believe the novel immunotherapy we've developed has great potential to move into clinical trials involving various types of cancer," said study leader Xingxing Zang, M.Med., Ph.D., the Louis Goldstein Swan Chair in Cancer Research and professor of microbiology & immunology, of oncology, of urology, and of medicine at Einstein and a member of the Cancer Therapeutics Program of the Montefiore Einstein Cancer Center.

Immune cells are coated with receptors called "checkpoint" proteins, which restrict them from attacking healthy cells while allowing them to attack and kill dangerous cells. But most cancer cells have proteins which trick immune cells into treating them as healthy, so they don't attack the cancer cells. Immune checkpoint inhibitors are antibodies which interfere with cancer cells' ability to trick immune cells into leaving them be.

The new treatment is designed to allow "natural killer (NK) cells" also see through cancer cells' disguise, bringing them into the fight against cancer cells along with T-cells.

In studies involving humanized animal models of several types of human cancers, the researchers showed that their monoclonal antibody against KIR2DL5--by blocking the KIR2DL5/PVR pathway--allowed NK cells to vigorously attack and shrink human tumors and prolong animal survival...

Now that Piers Morgan has alienated the left so much he can only get work at "right"-leaning outlets like Fox, he says he's changed his mind, and vaccine-refusers are not selfish bastards who want to murder grandma.

But he's not apologizing, because, you see, "everyone slightly lost their minds" during covid. Not just him -- everybody.

Piers Morgan said during an interview with "Triggernometry" that he was wrong about his previous rhetoric regarding COVID because the "science changed."


"I've changed my mind on a few things with COVID because the science changed," Morgan said. "I'll give you an example, and I'm quite happy to admit this and talk about it and people are like 'ah, there you go.' Like yeah, because to me, it changed. I, when they said the vaccine couldn't transmit the virus, I said right, so in that case everyone who doesn't have the vaccine right now represents a clear and present threat to spreading this virus and getting killed. You're selfish bastards, I'm gonna call you out. And by the way, if you do have the vaccine, they should have more freedoms because they're not gonna transmit it once they've had the jab. You are, you don't get."

Morgan said everything he had said about the vaccines was "completely wrong" once scientists said vaccinated people could get infected with the virus. He changed his views to believe that getting the jab is a "personal choice."

"Everyone slightly lost their minds and people were sort of banging on about freedom, where were you for the freedom of people to espouse these you didn't agree with on COVID?" Morgan said. "And it's a tricky one when a lot of people are dying but the whole point of fighting for freedom is sometimes, a lot of people die for freedom. So I totally accept that."

Right. Now that you have no one else to work for except corporations which play to freedom-championing conservatives, you "totally accept that" people have freedom over their own bodies. Wow, what an intellectual hero.

Not wearing a mask is racist, abelist, and classist, "professor" claims.


She looks fun.

And of course she claims to have "more than one disability." That's the new hotness for boosting your Oppression Quotient.

Queer professor decides she'll also identify as "disabled."

During a Mar. 6 panel discussion, professor Sami Schalk of the University of Wisconsin-Madison gave an account of an epiphany she had while researching disability studies. Before conducting this research, she did not think of herself as disabled. After, however, Schalk realized "there was a part of [her] that knew" she had a disability, similar to her self-realization that she was queer.

Schalk, besides being a professor of Gender & Women's Studies, describes herself as "polyamorous and a pleasure activist." She has also "twerked" with Lizzo.

Schalk spoke with Vilissa Thompson, a social worker, on the CUNY Graduate Center YouTube channel about Schalk's research and book titled "Black Disability Politics."

"So I took this [disability studies] class, and it blew my mind. Just fireworks going off in my brain ... I had spent so much time thinking about race and gender and class and sexuality, and I had just not been thinking about disability with the same critical lens," Schalk said of her first experiences encountering the discipline in college.

"I had to grapple with my own privilege within the disability system, because at the time I didn't understand myself as disabled," she continued. She then added, "[T]here was a part of me that knew, just like there was a part of me that knew I was queer."

The disabilities she claims include, according to her book, is "depression, disordered eating, chronic pain, and anxiety." She claims this makes her "unquestionably disabled."

A blind man just said, "You got it so bad, Honey."

I guess mental illness is a disability.

Reminder that people spend $100,000 per year to send their children to be molded by lunatics like this.

Keep this in mind for the next story: Histrionic women are making it a real habit of claiming any fashionable Disability Identity that comes along.

Surprise: "Long covid," if it's real, is associated with unhealthy life choices.

Older, heavier women who smoke and are unvaccinated are at significantly higher risk of developing so-called long COVID than people with healthier lifestyles, a study has found.

Nine public health researchers published the meta-analysis of 41 studies covering 860,783 patients Thursday in JAMA Internal Medicine. It is the first study to summarize all comorbidities identified in long COVID research published in leading medical journals as of Dec. 5.

Researchers found that while being female and over 40 were the top risk factors for contracting long COVID, also known as "Post-COVID-19 condition," others involved preventable conditions for all patients -- such as being unvaccinated, overweight and a smoker.

They noted that patients who received two doses of a SARS-CoV-2 vaccination were 43% less likely to develop the condition, which the World Health Organization defines as acute symptoms lasting at least three to five months after infection.

CNN ran this story but decided to suppress the fact that being overweight or a smoker (or female) increased the chances of "long covid." Instead, they claimed that the report's finding was:


Just absolute nonstop lies and propaganda. The notion that there are health interventions, like exercise, diet, and quitting smoking, that can protect against bad cases of covid is something the propagandists are determined to suppress and censor. The only option they will allow to be discussed is the non-vaccinating vaccine.

If anyone has had long covid, you have my sympathies. It's not so much that I doubt the syndrome entirely, it's that I think a lot of people who don't have long covid are just claiming they have long covid to stay out of work and collect disability. It's a very vague diagnosis that depends heavily on the patient's claims about what she's feeling. (And it is mostly women claiming to have long covid.) As Ryan Long points out, it just seems that people claiming to have long covid tend to be people who were previously claiming to have other problems that kept them from working or going into the office.

Meanwhile, a study says that people who had covid-19, and then got the vaccine anyway, as "Doctor" Anthony Fauci demanded, actually wound up damaging their body's natural immune response.

People who contracted COVID-19 before they got vaccinated appear to have damaged a key part of their immune-cell response, Stanford University researchers have found.

The study, published last week in the journal Immunity, reported a "major reduction" in the body's quantity and quality of CD8+ T cells -- known as "killer T cells" for their ability to kill infected cells -- in people who had survived a bout with COVID-19.

"You have damage that, even in recovery from the infection, you haven't really recovered your ability to make those CD8+ cells. So something happened in the course of infection to prevent that, to damage your response," Stanford professor Mark Davis, head of the university's Institute for Immunity, Transplantation and Infection, told CBS News.


The researchers found that vaccination of people who had never been infected with COVID-19 sparked robust CD4+ and CD8+ T-cell responses to the virus' spike protein.

But people who had survived a COVID-19 infection before vaccination produced spike-specific CD8+ T cells at considerably lower levels -- and with less functionality -- compared to vaccinated people who had never been infected.

This study must be one of those Right Wing Fake Science studies.

The study was co-funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is part of the National Institutes of Health.

That's of course "Doctor" Fauci's former agency.

And Fauci denied the power of natural immunity post-infection, and demanded that all people, even those with post-infection immunity, get vaccinated.

And it turns out that this was, as usual, the exact wrong course of action.

I wonder if long covid is caused by the combination of infection followed by vaccine -- maybe the vaccine is suppressing their "killer T cells" enough to allow covid symptoms to persist.

And wouldn't that be a fine valedictory from the most incompetent and corrupt -- and lethal -- bureaucrat who ever lived.

That's all I have.

Tell me about yo' GAINZZZ -- and PLANZZZ, and PROJEXXX.
