Pfizer COVID Vaccine Has 1,291 Side Effects Reveals Released Documents

In light of the potential adverse side effects of the Pfizer COVID shot, I am praying for divine protection from Yah over those who took the “vaccine” unwittingly. I know that everyone who took it did so with good intentions believing that government and pharmaceutical officials were being honest, but now that the courts have ordered Pfizer to release their research data, we see otherwise.


The linked article below provides the actual “top secret” documents from Pfizer that lists these potential adverse side effects to their shot. What more proof does anyone need regarding concerns over this “vaccine”?


Please forward this info to anyone that you love and are concerned about. The truth must get out.


At this point, for those who have taken the shot, the only options are to keep your body strong (take lots of supplements) and pray for YHVH’s mercy, grace and divine protection.

Again, everyone that I know who took the shot did so out of good intent and the best info possible at the time, and trusted the sources they were relying on to make their decision to do so. Now, however, the data from Pfizer indicates that great chicanery was going on—all, likely, in the name of monetary profits. They along with the US government that approved this shot knew these things and refused to tell us about it. This is shameful and wicked!!! At the same time, I believe that our Father in heaven, who is gracious and merciful, will protect those who call out to him in trusting faith from any adverse side effects of this drug.


I am reminded of the following Bible verses, which are the primary reason I chose not to take the shot:

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. (1 Cor 3:16–17)
For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM. I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. Therefore “COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE SEPARATE, SAYS THE LORD. DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN, AND I WILL RECEIVE YOU. I WILL BE A FATHER TO YOU, AND YOU SHALL BE MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS, SAYS THE LORD ALMIGHTY.” (2 Cor 6:16–18)


Now to the article dated March 5, 2022

From https://greatgameindia.com/pfizer-covid-vaccine-side-effects-documents/.

When Pfizer applied for FDA approval, they were aware of almost 158,000 adverse events. This really does not paint them in a favorable light. And now, it’s been officially reported that Pfizer’s COVID vaccine has 1,291 side effects according to released documents.

In January, a judge ordered the FDA to provide clinical data on the COVID vaccinations, which resulted in the disclosure of 55,000 pages of documentation.

The FDA had planned to keep the data hidden for 75 years until releasing it in 2096 because, well, the FDA is essentially a criminal conspiracy. The COVID vaccinations never should have been licensed in the first place. 

This was clear from the start, when the Trump administration’s ill-fated “Operation War Speed” bypassed animal tests. It’s now definitely true. We’ve got the clinical evidence, and it’s horrifying.

The clinical data for Pfizer’s vaccine is hidden in one appendix (read below), which contains 1,291 unfavorable side effects in alphabetical order. Let’s have a look at some of the negative consequences of taking the Pfizer vaccine that begin with the letter “a”:

1p36 deletion syndrome; 2-Hydroxyglutaric aciduria; 5’nucleotidase increased; Acoustic neuritis;Acquired C1 inhibitor deficiency;Acquired epidermolysis bullosa;Acquired epileptic aphasia;Acute cutaneous lupus erythematosus;Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis;Acute encephalitis with refractory, repetitive partial seizures;Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis;Acute flaccid myelitis;Acute haemorrhagic leukoencephalitis;Acute haemorrhagic oedema of infancy;Acute kidney injury;Acute macular outer retinopathy;Acute motor axonal neuropathy;Acute motor-sensory axonal neuropathy;Acute myocardial infarction;Acute respiratory distress syndrome;Acute respiratory failure;Addison’s disease;Administration site thrombosis;Administration site vasculitis;Adrenal thrombosis;Adverse event following immunisation;Ageusia;Agranulocytosis;Air embolism;Alanine aminotransferase abnormal;Alanine aminotransferase increased;Alcoholic seizure;Allergic bronchopulmonary mycosis;Allergic oedema;Alloimmune hepatitis;Alopecia areata;Alpers disease;Alveolar proteinosis;Ammonia abnormal;Ammonia increased;Amniotic cavity infection;

You get my drift. There really are 9 pages of small print adverse effects.

You already recognize that vaccines can cause myocarditis in children, particularly young boys, but you must also consider the serious risks of a brain stem embolism, acute kidney injury, cardiac failure, frontal lobe epilepsy, Hashimoto’s encephalopathy, herpes, interstitial lung disease, or Type 1 diabetes mellitus — just to name a few of the many serious side effects.

And therefore don’t tell me you have a low probability of getting hurt. The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), a government database, includes over 1 million complaints of “adverse events” to the new vaccinations, with 24,000 of them labelled as “death.” 

When Pfizer applied for FDA approval, they were aware of almost 158,000 “adverse events.” People suffered major problems after receiving the Pfizer vaccine, and Pfizer was aware of this before seeking FDA approval. Take a look at this graph created by Pfizer.

Why would the FDA authorize a new vaccination if 15,000 people developed major nervous system illnesses after using it?

There’s simply no incentive to do so.

Alert your friends and relatives that children’s vaccinations must be stopped promptly. Governments have purchased million dosages of this toxin for kids under the age of five without obtaining approval, and it should never be permitted to administer them.

Americans: Know Your Rights Concerning “Mandatory” [0v!D Injections

Many Americans are currently facing firings from their jobs because they are refusing to take the C0v!d-i9 shot. What are the issue here, and what are YOUR legal rights in this regard?

Refusal to take injections because of one’s sincerely held religious beliefs (this is a key phrase to remember) has been viewed by US law as a fundamental, God-given right since time in memorial. After all, who has the right to tell you what you can or cannot put into your body? Your body belongs to you, not to someone else or to some government entity. The basic issue is this: If someone can force you to put something into your body against your consent, then you no longer have God-given right of ownership over your own body. That is, you no longer own yourself, someone else does. When this occurs, you are now, by definition, a slave, who is under the control of a tyrant.

What are sincerely held religious beliefs? It is whatever YOU determine them to be at any moment in time. No other human except you has the right to question or to determine what your sincerely held religious beliefs are. YOUR religious beliefs are personal and are no one else’s business. This is because the US Constitution and other US laws guarantee the right to practice one’s religion freely as a God-given right, which cannot be infringed upon by government or anyone else (unless doing so violates certain other fundamental or basic human rights [such as taking the life of someone, or stealing from someone]).

Furthermore, no one has the right to ask you why you believe what you do, how long you have believed it, or to seek information regarding the tenets of your religious faith. Moreover, you do not need the stamp of approval from any religious “official” or organization confirming your sincerely held religious beliefs. Your faith is yours and yours alone. It is personal and belongs to you and is nobody else’s business. Do not tell those seeking this information anything about what your believe. Make no mistake, any information you give them in this regard can and will be used against you in order to bully you into going against your sincerely held religious beliefs.

Here are some informational resources to help you maintain your personal, Elohim (God)-given rights if you choose not to take any shot or injection:

  • Know your HIPAA (i.e., Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) rights. The HIPAA Act “The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that required the creation of national standards to protect sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge. The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued the HIPAA Privacy Rule to implement the requirements of HIPAA. The HIPAA Security Rule protects a subset of information covered by the Privacy Rule,” (from https://www.cdc.gov/phlp/publications/topic/hipaa.html). For more information on the HIPAA Act rules and regulations including “Covered Entities,” and “Permitted Uses and Disclosures” go to https://www.cdc.gov/phlp/publications/topic/hipaa.html.
  • If your employer is demanding that you get a C0v!d-i9 shot, then your next step will be to file a complaint with the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equal_Employment_Opportunity_Commission,

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is a federal agency that was established via the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to administer and enforce civil rights laws against workplace discrimination.[3]: 12, 21  The EEOC investigates discrimination complaints based on an individual’s race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, and retaliation for reporting, participating in, and/or opposing a discriminatory practice.[4]

The Commission also mediates and settles thousands of discrimination complaints each year prior to their investigation. The EEOC is also empowered to file civil discrimination suits against employers on behalf of alleged victims and to adjudicate claims of discrimination brought against federal agencies.

When confronted with an EEOC complaint and the threat of a lawsuit over YOUR religious rights, no right-minded employer is going to want take this on. Be aware of one thing, however. An employer can fire you for many other reasons that are not religious in nature. He may not like the way you comb your hair or the color of your pants. That is to say, an employer can fire you ostensibly for one reason, while, in reality, he is secretly firing you for another reason. That is why, as a child of Elohim, it behooves you to be the best employee possible, so that your employer will NOT want to fire you, for your loss to him will not be worth his enforcing the shot mandate on you. If your employer is recalcitrant with regard to the shot mandate for their employees, then civil litigation may to an option. At the same time, consider the idea that YHVH Elohim, the one who directs the footsteps of the righteous when they trust in him (see Ps. 37; 1, 3–7, 23–24), may be closing a door behind you, so that he can open the door to a better situation in front of you. Remember, the just shall walk by faith.

To learn more about your religious rights as protected by the EEOC and other government laws and how to claim and ensure these rights are not violated, go to https://www.eeoc.gov. To file a complaint, go to https://www.eeoc.gov/how-file-charge-employment-discrimination.

COVID Mandates—Where do we go and what do we do?

It seems that almost everyday, I’m either receiving emails, watching videos, reading news reports, listening to news podcasts or hearing directly from folks about people’s fears concerning government imposed mandates with regard to COVID restrictions being placed on them. These restrictions are often questionable legally if not outright illegal and go against our, often our constitutionally guaranteed, civil rights. What ware we do do about this when it affects our ability to work and provide for our families as well as move about in order to buy food and so on? The following short essay are my thoughts on this.


With regard to State imposed COVID mandates, many of us are watching our governments go rogue and illegal in their march toward tyrannical control over their constituents for the purpose of power and money and to advance various satanic agendas. This has great implications as to how it affects our lives, so what are we to do?

In more and more instances, it seems that the ruling authorities no longer care  about the rule of law, and will do whatever necessary, legal or illegal, to advance their genocidal and demonic schemes. For them, the ends justify the means, and this has always been the main rule from their playbook.

The fact is that we are marching irrevocably toward the Babylon the Great new world order just as the book of Revelation predicts would happen in the end times.

As the need for and survival tactic of civil disobedience becomes more and more apparent, we will need to pray for YHVH’s strategic gameplan on how to fight those edicts that are against his word and limit or prevent us from accomplishing his will for each of us. May he give us the wisdom and discernment on how to act, what to say and to know when and how to do it such that we are in his perfect will, so that he will fight our battles for us and glorify his name through us in the process.

Our greatest hour when we can shine the brightest in the darkness of this world is just around the corner. We must hang on to this hope and truth as we go forward.

Yes, to be sure, our lifestyles will change and our civil rights and freedoms abridged, but in the process, our YHVH Elohim will open doors and avenues for us to go through and in which to operate heretofore unknown and invisible to us that will allow us to survive and flourish despite it all. This is our only hope, and we must cling to it for life, or else our faith is mere talk and is in vain. And if that be the case, then as Solomon the wise Preacher declared, as did Paul the apostle, we may as well eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die, for that is all there is.

But no, this is not our fate. On the contrary, it is now time to start thinking outside of the box of the limitations of our own thinking and self-imposed paradigms as we move forward into this uncharted territory that none of us have been in before. After all, YHVH lives outside of our boxes and thus has ways, means and resources at his disposal of which we know nothing about; therefore, we must boldly step forward in faith, trusting in him and praying for wisdom from above, while taking each step carefully under his watchful guidance. He will show each of us the way, and when one door shuts behind us, he will open another in front of us, and we will find the blessing from heaven above in it all if we look for it. Amein.

 

Dr. Peter McCullough: ‘whistleblowers’ inside CDC claim injections have already killed 50,000 Americans

From: https://hoshanarabbah.org/blog/wp-admin/post.php?post=19180&action=edit

‘Good doctors are doing unthinkable things’ …They ‘appear to be under a spell’

Dr. Peter McCullough

The most highly cited physician on the early treatment of COVID-19 has come out with an explosive new video that blows the lid off the medical establishment’s complicity in the unnecessary deaths of tens of thousands of Americans.

Dr. Peter McCullough said these deaths have been facilitated by a false narrative bent on pushing an all-new, unproven vaccine for a disease that was highly treatable.

He said COVID was a bioweapon and the vaccines represent “phase two” of that bioweapon.

“As this, in a sense, bioterrorism phase one was rolled out, it was really all about keeping the population in fear and in isolation and preparing them to accept the vaccine, which appears to be phase two of a bioterrorism operation,” McCullough said in a June 11 webinar with German attorney Reiner Fuellmich and several other doctors.

He noted:

“Both the respiratory virus and the vaccine delivered to the human body the spike protein, the gain of function target of this bioterrorism research.”

Most of McCullough’s comments come in the first 10 minutes of the below video.

[To watch the video, go here: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Dr.+Peter+McCullough%3A+‘whistleblowers’]

He did not hold back in his criticism of his colleagues in the medical community.

“And doctors, good doctors, are doing unthinkable things, like injecting biologically active messenger RNA that produces this pathological spike protein into pregnant women. I think when the doctors wake up from their trance they’re going to be shocked to think what they’ve done to people.”

McCullough is professor of medicine and vice chief of internal medicine at Baylor University and also teaches at Texas A&M University. He is an epidemiologist, cardiologist and internist and has testified before the Texas State Senate related to COVID-19 treatments. He holds the distinction of being the most widely cited physician in the treatment of COVID-19 with more than 600 citations in the National Library of Medicine.

In the video, recorded by Oval Media, McCullough said:

“The first wave of the bioterrorism is a respiratory virus that spread across the world, and affected relatively few people—about one percent of many populations—but generated great fear.”

He said the virus targeted primarily people over 50 with multiple medical conditions. It poses almost no risk to children.

He said 85 percent of the more than 600,000 U.S. deaths could have been prevented with a multi-drug treatment given in the early to mid-point of the disease.

Instead, people were told to stay home and not return to the hospital unless their symptoms got worse, such as severe breathing problems. By then it was too late for many. They were placed on ventilators and died.

The vast majority of doctors jumped in lockstep to follow these erroneous “guidelines” handed down by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. Those guidelines neglected to place any focus on the treatment of sick patients and, from the beginning, as early as April 2020, started emphasizing the need for a vaccine as the only real hope of beating back the virus.

The federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System [VAERS] logged 5,993 reports of deaths of people injected with the COVID vaccine between Dec. 14, 2020, and June 11, 2021. That’s more than all the deaths reported to VAERS from all other vaccines combined over the last 22 years.

But these numbers, as shocking as they are, don’t scratch the surface of the actual number of dead Americans, said McCullough.

“We have now a whistleblower inside the CMS, and we have two whistleblowers in the CDC. We think we have 50,000 dead Americans. Fifty thousand deaths. So we actually have more deaths due to the vaccine per day than certainly the viral illness by far. It’s basically propagandized bioterrorism by injection.”

McCullough added that “every single thing that was done in public health in response to the pandemic made it worse.”

He said the suppression of early COVID treatments, such as hydroxychloroquine and especially Ivermectin, “was tightly linked to the development of a vaccine.”

Without the suppression of the already-available treatments, the government would not have been able to legally grant Emergency Use Authorization to the three vaccines rushed to market by Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson and Johnson.

In the case of Moderna, the U.S. government is co-patent holder through the National Institutes of Health, a clear conflict of interest.

“I published basically the only two papers that teach doctors how to treat COVID-19 at home to prevent hospitalization and death…If treated early, it results in an 85 percent reduction in hospitalizations and death,” McCullough said.

So not only were the vaccines rolled out unnecessarily by suppressing already available, effective treatments, but the FDA and CDC are now covering up tragic numbers of deaths caused by their experimental mRNA injections.

McCullough said he has organized groups around the world that emphasize early treatment.

“Governments have actually tried to block early treatment of COVID patients, so we created a home patient guide,” he said.

“We broke through to the people, and the people who got sick with COVID called in to get medications from mail-order distribution pharmacies. So without the government even knowing what went on, we crushed the epidemic here in the United States towards the end of December and January. We basically took care of the pandemic with about 500 doctors and telemedicine services. And to this day we treat about 25 percent of the US COVID-19 population that actually are at high risk, over age 50 with medical problems or present with severe symptoms. And we basically handled the pandemic, and at the same time we’ve tried to keep ourselves above the political fray.”

McCullough said his focus has recently turned to the unnecessary and dangerous injections.

“We are working to change the public view of the vaccine. The public initially accepted the vaccine and we had to kind of slowly turn the ship. Now, in the U.S. the rates of vaccination have been dropping since April 8. Most of the vaccination centers are empty.”

“We have a lot going on in the United States. We are engaging more and more attorneys.”

 

Covid-19: Pandemic or Plandemic?

This video, sent to me by one of this blog’s readers, articulates many of the thoughts and concerns that I have had for many months regarding the current Covid-19/Coronavirus pandemic along with the accompanying global consequences thereof.

Continue to watch and pray, as Yeshua admonished his disciples to do.

 

COVID-19—The Similarities Between Sin and Germs

In this time of viral epidemics whether they be as serious as we are being told they are or not, the fact remains that plagues and pestilences do occur and affect people’s lives in dramatic ways. This should be a time of reflection for all of YHVH’s people, a time to search our own lives, to evaluate our own spiritual walk before YHVH Elohim and our relationship with Yeshua our Messiah. Life is a divine gift, and good health, next to salvation, is one of the greatest gifts of all. The following piece that I wrote many years ago when considered against the backdrop of the current Coronavirus/COVID-19 virus will hopefully give us some food for thought as we compare the spiritual virus of sin with the physical virus that is raging all around us. Please take a moment to pause and reflect on this…selah! — Natan

How Leviticus chapters 12, 13 and 14 relate to you

These several chapters are some of the most difficult ones in the Torah for us to wrap our brains around spiritually. What is the relevance of these arcane laws of ritual impurity and “leprosy” to modern people? With a little thought, we can see that there are some deep and relevant spiritual truths contained in these biblical passages!

As Matthew Henry points out in his classic gospel-oriented commentary on the Bible, after the laws concerning clean and unclean foods in Leviticus 11 come the laws concerning clean and unclean persons. As germs are contagions causing physical disease, so man is infected with the spiritual contagion of a sin nature that brings about spiritual disease ultimately leading to death. Henry explains that man imparts his depraved sin nature to his offspring at conception, which is why the woman needed to go through ritual cleansing after childbirth. Similarly, the Bible teaches us that the plague of leprosy (Heb. tsaraasreferring to a generic skin disease) was a judgment by Elohim against the sins of rebellion, greed and misuse of the tongue (e.g. Miriam, Gehazi and King Uzziah).

The spread of and cure for spiritual diseases is similar to those of physical diseases, as we’ll discuss below. First, however, let’s compare and contrast how physical germs are similar to spiritual sin “germs.”

What are germs?

With the help of several modern health care professionals, we first need to learn about germs. 

“Our bodies are pretty amazing. Day after day, they work hard—digesting food, pumping blood and oxygen, sending signals from our brains and much more.

“But there is a group of tiny invaders that can make our bodies sick—they’re called germs.

“Some kids may think that germs are bugs or cooties or other gross stuff. Actually, germsare tiny organisms, or living things, that can cause disease. Germs are so small and sneaky that they creep into our bodies without being noticed. In fact, germs are so tiny that you need to use a microscope to see them. When they get in our bodies, we don’t know what hit us until we have symptoms that say we’ve been attacked!” (from: kidshealth.org/en/kids/germs.html).

Where do germs live?

“Germs have favorite places to live, preferred ways to travel, and if they are harmful, have their own unique ways of causing disease. Germs can live in or on dirt, water, countertops, our skin, our intestines, and in many other places around us. Some germs can survive on their own while others prefer living in people or animals. Some germs live only in hot areas of the world while others live only in cold areas. When germs find a place that is good for them, they multiply and set up a home for themselves” (from: www.sfcdcp.org/germs.html).

How do germs spread diseases?

“Germs spread in different ways. To catch an infectious disease, you first need to be exposed to a harmful germ. Then it needs to get on or into your body and act in its unique ways to cause disease. Our bodies are good at fighting infections; not everybody who is exposed to germs will get sick, but some will. Here are the most common ways to be exposed:

Touching. Some germs live in body fluids like mucus, pus, and stool. Even the invisible drops released when people talk, cough, or sneeze can carry germs. Touching a contaminated surface or object, then touching your eyes, nose, mouth, a cut, or other opening in the body, can lead to an infectious disease.

Eating or drinking. Some germs exist in food and untreated water. Unwashed fruits and vegetables, and foods not properly cooked or kept at the right temperature, may carry harmful germs.

Breathing. Some germs spread through the air. When someone coughs, sneezes, or talks they can release germs. When harmful germs are inhaled, they can cause illness.

Getting bitten. Animals can carry and spread infectious diseases to people. Bites from wild animals, pets, or even a small animal like a bat or insect can cause illness. Even if the animal doesn’t look sick, it may carry harmful germs” (from: www.sfcdcp.org/germs.html).

With very little imagination, we can see how sin, like germs, are always trying to attack us spiritually and infect us with sinful thoughts, words and deeds. This is one reason that the Bible likens sin to yeast. As one rotten apple can cause a whole box of apples to rot, so it only takes miniscule amount yeast to “infect” a lump of bread dough thus causing it to rise.

How can we prevent the spread of unhealthy germs and thus diseases?
