The herd immunity through vaccination experiment has failed
The single most important objective of mass vaccination with Covid-19 vaccines was to achieve herd immunity. This is no longer within reach. Now "experts" not only blame disappointing vaccine coverage rates but also the unvaccinated.

Herd immunity is achieved when an infection no longer encounters enough hosts to allow it to spread further. Herd immunity is also generally achieved through post-infection immunization and vaccination. With some diseases, such as smallpox or measles, the vaccination works perfectly, with others, such as respiratory diseases, only to a limited extent or not at all. This is particularly the case with SARS-CoV-2.
The new UK technical briefing, which reports deaths and hospitalizations by vaccination status, paints a terrible picture. Over the last month, fully vaccinated people made up over half of new deaths for the first time – 106 out of 203.
For every infectious disease there is a threshold above which herd immunity is achieved. How much this is depends on how infectious the virus is and how a society is organized. As a rule of thumb, the formula 1-1/R0 applies, where R0 is the reproduction factor. With an R0 of 2,5 to 3, as can be assumed for SARS-CoV-2, the threshold for herd immunity would be reached at a degree of mechanization of 60 to 67 percent.
The threshold is always below the result of this formula, because it only applies to homogeneous societies where everyone has the same number of contacts with others. But that does not exist in practice. An immunized person with a large number of contacts contributes significantly more to herd immunity than a hermit.
Those who understand how current vaccines work have been explaining this for almost a year. Antibodies are produced, but these circulate in the blood, as do the even more important specific T-cells.
The crucial antibodies and T-cells to prevent infection, namely those in the mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract – nose, mouth and throat – cannot be produced by this type of Covid-19 vaccination since it requires an infection through these upper respiratory tracts.
And it has been confirmed by practical experience. In the countries with high percentages of vaccinated people, it is clear that the distribution of infections between vaccinated and unvaccinated people corresponds to the ratio of vaccinations. In fact, in countries where there are few people who have been vaccinated, the number of infections is low.
Vaccination does not even protect against hospitalization and serious illness as claimed by the approval studies of vaccine manufacturers and politicians as data from Israel shows. Politicians are nevertheless calling for more vaccinations, compulsory vaccination or at least disadvantages for unvaccinated people. Only – the data show that vaccinated people are infected about as often as unvaccinated people.
This is the view of Geert van den Bossche. “It is, indeed, quite unbelievable that some advising experts pretend that although we won’t achieve herd immunity, we will still be able to exchange the pandemic for an endemic situation. When does that happen? The answer is: never.”
In refusing to recommend and use cheap, available effective treatments, the WHO, EMA, CDC and other national and international health authorities have caused millions of deaths, some of them directly from the vaccinations themselves. Notably the public health institution NHS England has put out a £3,2 billion tender for blood clot treatment, one of the side-effects of the vaccines.

The ethicist Ruth Baumann-Hölzle warned in an interview in the Neue Zuercher Zeitung that the most basic conflicts around vaccination were not being openly discussed. When it comes to vaccination, the state is pretending that it offers protection which it does not, she pointed out.
The effectiveness of Pfizer’s vaccine against Covid-19 infection has fallen to 39 percent in Israel, the national health ministry said on Thursday. This rate is significantly lower than 64 percent measured between June 6 and July 3 and 94,3 percent measured between May 2 and June 5.
Israel and the UK have had one of the most effective vaccination campaigns in the world, with nearly 57 percent of Israelis fully vaccinated.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."
What is happening in the Netherlands? It is often difficult to follow events in other countries, especially when distorted by system media. We give Forum for Democracy (FvD) the opportunity to speak out on the political situation in the Netherlands and the staunch resistance they face in trying to save the country.
After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter. The document primarily expresses care and advice and was read aloud in Catholic churches in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland. Cardinal Anders Arborelius, Bishop of Stockholm, is one of the signatories of the document.
