Del Boy Scientists Discover Clotshot ‘Trigger’

Our American friends might not appreciate the subtle headline above, most likely because they are unaware of the highly successful and much loved UK comedy series ‘Only Fools and Horses’. Del Boy and Trigger are both characters in that sitcom.

I use the headline mockingly, to illustrate the absurdity of UK mainstream ‘news’. This isn’t news. it’s not ‘newly discovered’. It’s not really ground-breaking scientific research. In fact, it’s been known about for years, even before the advent of the Covid-19 ‘vaccines’. I wrote about it here.

The BBC and the rest of the MSM here in the UK are making a big deal about it. This is the BBC headline:

Covid: Trigger of rare blood clots with AstraZeneca jab found by scientists

Shouts at you. Makes you think that some new and exciting scientific discovery has happened. It hasn’t. They may have uncovered more details about the mechanism involved. That’s it basically. All that’s happened is that Del Boy has discovered that Trigger has replaced the handle on his old broom.

The BBC say:

Scientists believe they have found “the trigger” that leads to extremely rare blood clots after the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid vaccine.

The team – in Cardiff and the US – have shown in exquisite detail how a protein in the blood is attracted to a key component of the vaccine.

They think this kicks off a chain reaction, involving the immune system, that can culminate in dangerous clots.

It also started a scientific detective hunt to figure out what was going on and if it could be prevented. The Cardiff team were given emergency government funding to find the answers.

Ooh, really? A real life detective hunt!

The researchers thought the adenovirus might be linked to the rare clots occurring in some people.

They did? Why’s that I wonder? Could it have something to do with the fact that adenovirus vectors were implicated in blood clotting years ago? Surely not! I wrote about this very topic in the reference above:

The issue has been known about for at least 15 years, so there’s no excuse for the manufacturers to claim that such an adverse effect was unforeseen – it wasn’t. Here for instance:

Thrombocytopenia has been consistently reported following the administration of adenoviral gene transfer vectors. The mechanism underlying this phenomenon is currently unknown.

And here:

Thrombocytopenia is a major adverse effect of high dose systemic administration of adenoviral (Ad) gene therapy vectors. While a previous report did not find platelet activation by Ad [1], recent studies have shown that Ad may activate platelets [2] and binds in vivo to murine thrombocytes resulting in hepatic sequestration [3]. Ad-induced thrombocytopenia has been shown to be dose-dependent, saturable and reversible [4], compatible with a ligand-receptor mechanism. Recently, binding of Ad to platelet was indirectly suggested following interference of platelet adhesion to fibronectin after incubation with Ad [2]. In this study we developed a direct flow cytometry assay to quantitatively analyze Ad attachment to human platelets in vitro and to characterize their interaction.

So any claims of ‘new discovery’ by the press are total bullshit and moreover they conceal the fact that the manufacturers of the Oxford/AZ chimp virus ‘vaccine’ must have known from the word go that their product carried a significant risk of inducing blood clots.

They even knew a lot about the mechanism of the binding of the adenovirus to platelets way back in 2009 and this scientific study describes it in detail, which sounds suspiciously similar to the mechanism ‘newly discovered’ by Del Boy scientists today – though I’m not an expert judge in that respect. The point is, scientists knew that adenoviral vectors were a potential problem 10 years before the Covid ‘vaccines’ appeared on the scene. Just how gullible and stupid do the main stream press think we are?

Oxford/AstraZeneca Vaccine & Blood Clots – the Shifting Sands of Evidence

It’s strange isn’t it, that days after Mike Yeadon and other scientists wrote to the European Medicines Agency warning of the potential for serious thrombolic adverse reactions associated with the Covid ‘vaccines’, many countries in Europe put a temporary hold on vaccinations with AZ whilst the EMA and the German regulator looked into it. The British government claimed there was no evidence of any link between the AZ jab and blood clots and Pol Pot Belly went live on TV to get the AZ jab despite earlier claiming that he was ‘bursting with [natural] antibodies’.

The EMA then reversed their decision, despite there being evidence that there was a significant increased risk of this very rare form of blood clotting in women under 60 administered with the vackseen. The vaccine was ‘safe and effective’ they said and there was no evidence of a link with rare blood clotting and the benefits outweighed the risks, blah, blah, blah, despite the fact that the risk to healthy women under 60 from Covid-19 is tiny.

But now, Germany has suspended the use of AZ in the under 60s and the EMA has changed its tune. In the Mail:

One of the European drug regulator’s senior officials today claimed there is now a ‘clear’ link between AstraZeneca’s Covid vaccine and potentially deadly blood clots.

Marco Cavaleri, head of vaccines at the European Medicines Agency (EMA), said that CVST — a brain blockage that can lead to a stroke — was occurring more often than expected in younger people.

But he admitted that the body was still baffled about how the jab may trigger the rare complication.

Despite his comments, Mr Cavaleri’s agency has repeatedly insisted AstraZeneca’s jab is safe and the benefits outweigh any risks. 

Last week it slapped down Germany for suspending its use in under-60s, arguing there was ‘no evidence’ to support age-based restrictions.

But at the same time, the watchdog paved the way for a potential U-turn, warning that the rate of the complication did appear to be slightly higher than expected in vaccinated under-60s. 

Experts across the board say the evidence is now ‘shifting’ and that the jab is likely – in extremely rare cases – to cause the brain blockage.

‘Shifting’ . . . . yeah, right. It was there in the first place. First they took notice, then they dismissed it, no doubt for political reasons, then they were forced to look at it again because incidences of blood clotting in vaccinees kept happening.

The MHRA have not yet moved to restrict AZ vaccinations and Pol Pot Belly was out in Macclesfield a few days ago promoting the jab, no doubt thinking at the time that he would be announcing the introduction of vaccine passports, having not anticipated the strength of opposition to them.

Boris Johnson today called on Britons to still get the jab while on a visit to an AstraZeneca factory in Macclesfield, saying the ‘best thing’ they can do is ‘look at what the MHRA say’. He added: ‘Their advice to people is to keep going out there, get your jab, get your second jab.’

But he glossed over questions about whether the UK could impose a ban on the jab for under-30s.

Of course, the hard-nosed statisticians claim that the chance of a person dying from Covid in the younger age groups is still much higher than the chance of dying from the rare form of CVST blood clotting. The Mail reproduces this graph:

Convincing isn’t it? Except for the fact that it completely ignores:

/ Covid deaths in the 25-44 age groups are overwhelmingly those with serious underlying illness, both male and female.

/ AFAIA CVST events are mainly in younger women with no underlying health issues who are at much less risk of dying from Covid-19 than is the impression given by that chart.

/ ‘Covid deaths’ are almost certainly overestimated, therefore the risk of dying from Covid is also overestimated.

/ Other adverse reaction risks are associated with being jabbed (there are many), including unknown long term risks.

So why would any sane, healthy woman (or man even) under 60, but particularly under 45, opt to get jabbed with an experimental ‘vaccine’ with demonstrable serious side effects (including CVST) and unknown future long term health effects supposedly in order to ‘protect’ themselves against a disease which, if they were to contract, would probably present as no worse than a bad cold, if they were unlucky? Most liklely answer: because the government told them they wouldn’t be able to go on holiday if they didn’t! But it’s the vaccine refuseniks who are ‘selfish’ apparently.
