Covid Vaccine Quacks and Charlatans Promoting "Ba.5 Booster"
Everything fits the definition of "Quackery" and "Charlatans"
I was reading a Wikipedia article on “Quackery”, and uncomfortably realized that it describes sellers and promoters of “Covid vaccines”.
Quackery is an old term, involving dishonest or confused persons selling treatments that are untested and are not working: The old term “snake oil” describes such quack treatments.
Common elements of general quackery include questionable diagnoses using questionable diagnostic tests, as well as untested or refuted treatments.
Everything checks out, right? Questionable tests, untested and known-not-to-work treatments, describe Covid response and Covid vaccines perfectly.
Here’s the definition of quackery from the FDA, per Quackwatch (archive):
The FDA defines health fraud as “the promotion, for profit, of a medical remedy known to be false or unproven.”
I have no interest in reciting thousands of articles about how Covid vaccines do not work, could never work, are unproven, and so on, as I have no interest in wasting my readers’ time — we all know that by now.
Here’s a new and interesting example, though.
COVID charlatans are now promoting an untested “Bivalent Booster”, which will make them a lot of money, but is completely unproven and will NOT work.
Ba.5 Booster as Medical Quackery
White House “Covid response coordinator” and the second most important Covid charlatan Dr. Ashish Jha is promising us that an “updated” Ba.5 booster will be available in several weeks.
You would think that before being given to tens of millions of people, this novel booster would undergo extensive testing, right?
Guess what: the “Ba.5 variant vaccine” did not even exist as of the end of June 2022! The idea of it was voted on at the FDA meeting on June 29, 2022, when “updated boosters”, based on a long-extinct Ba.1 variant were presented by Pfizer and Moderna. The presentation left much to be desired:
However, the updated shots did not perform as well against BA.4 and BA.5, though the immune response was still strong.
(As an aside, this sounds nonsensical. How can “updated shots” not perform against Ba.5 if “the immune response was still strong”? Well, the term immune response refers to counting antibodies, known as immunobridging. The antibodies were there! However, just like electrolytes in Idiocracy, those antibodies do not actually prevent Covid and are only good for counting).
So, the FDA experts decided to dispense with the Ba.1-based booster, since it does not work anyway, and do a Hail Mary pass and instead develop a booster based on Ba.5. This decision was based on a hunch, involved exactly zero scientific data, and was adopted despite two FDA advisers voting NO.
This spur-of-the-moment decision-making, in the utter absence of any data, is all it takes the FDA charlatans to decide that instead of a non-working Ba.1 fall booster, they would instead develop a totally untested Ba.5-based booster, to be given to tens of millions of Americans.
If this kind of decision-making is not medical quackery, then what is?
The decision was made and the Ba.5-based booster will soon be produced in September or October. Last July, the federal government already ordered and committed to pay for
Please appreciate the insanity of how disproportionate is the size of these orders. In the USA, only 107 million people received boosters. Now the federal government orders 171 million doses of “updated boosters”. That is two-thirds MORE than the number of people who agreed to take boosters up to date (107 million). Isn’t it obvious that they will never find 171 million people to take what they purchased?
Our federal Covid charlatans, obviously, do not care that the Ba.5 booster has not seen any testing, or that the Federal government is overpaying for the doses it will never dispense. They are happy to split the money and that’s what matters.
But wait, it gets worse!
UK Orders Ba.1-based “Updated Boosters”
Covid charlatans in the UK managed to outdo even their US counterparts.
The US FDA experts, at least, refused to accept the Ba.1-based booster as they saw it did not actually work. So, what did COVID vaccine makers do with the Ba.1 booster that they planned on selling? That’s right, they found another buyer: the UK.
The UK agreed to buy the Ba.1 booster based on the reasoning OPPOSITE to what the US FDA employed. Remember, the FDA said that since Ba.1 booster does not work against Ba.5, let’s discard it and use a Ba.5 booster. UK’s MHRA did not even bother asking whether Ba.1 booster will work against Ba.5 and adopted the Ba.1 booster anyway. This infographic might help:
So, Covid charlatans in these two countries used flawed reasoning that led them to seemingly opposite decisions: one country decided to adopt Ba.5 shots based on zero evidence, whereas another country decided to adopt Ba.1 shots despite evidence of them NOT working.
Neither Booster will Work
The irony of the situation is that neither of the boosters will work. Why? The reason is that Ba.1 is long extinct, and Ba.5 will likely also fade away before the “boosters” are deployed this fall.
The plan to use either booster is to inject people with boosters against variants that most vaccinated people already were sick with. What exactly would such injections accomplish?
There will be another variant to circulate in the fall. What that variant will be, is not yet known. But this will be precisely the variant to avoid any remaining “Ba.5 immunity” or “Ba.1 immunity”, and the additional booster shots will not help with that.
Ba.5 Boosters may be Uniquely Dangerous
Our insightful reader Doorless Carp pointed out an article about a very important aspect of Ba.5 variant’s spike protein: it has 63 times greater affinity for ACE2 receptor than the original spike protein. Therefore, Ba.5 spike protein, codon optimized for endless mRNA transcription, may bind to so many ACE2 receptors as to “trigger inflammation, thrombosis and vasoconstriction”.

Update — Pfizer “Emergency Application” — ZERO Testing was Done
Next day update. Pfizer submitted an “Emergency Application” to the FDA. The application clearly states that exactly ZERO testing was done with the “Ba.5 variant booster”.
Is this really “science” or “evidence-based medicine”? Or is this, instead, quackery promoted by charlatans?
Where is the “evidence”, as in “evidence-based medicine”?
Please tell us what you think!
These fucking criminals need to tried by a jury of their informed victims (not their corrupt peers as and subsequently given every single mRNA vax left unused in the world divided amongst them especially Ralph and Tony and to live stream it .
At the very least they’d do it 1 by 1 so they can measure the average amount each could tolerate before arriving in hell and make some science of it . Fauci’s pension at least 15 years also needs to go to research and payouts.
Although perhaps Tony should be left in live-streamed solitary to legally get his pension or somesuch.
My best friend maimed by stroke at 23 . She’s being gaslit by doctor’s to this day .
Being unvaccinated in Canada has been so profoundly psychologically tortuous . The gaslighting, the stress and outage the coercion, the illegal violation of my constitutional rights. The poisoning of everyone I love (thankfully no deaths).
The human toll in just my very very small network has been has been immeasurable and had it been lost me believing my “lying eyes “ that reviewed the literature I don’t know I’d still be here without Substacks like yours and Malones to confirm I am not in fact insane. Because no one I know , even family, bothered to read or evaluate anything... despite me imploring them and directly appealing to the fact without someone else’s considered opinion to read literature so I could get some sort of feedback I felt like I was going insane.
I have an aggressive autoimmune disorder disorder kept on check via carnivore diet because I refused biologics and prior to the “pandemic” I was happy and pain free for a few years after half a decade of intense unmanaged pain.
The psychological duress has made it less effective unfortunately but given I fell for propaganda early on and got a flu shot and was crippled with pain for 2 weeks and how much inflammation food can cause for me I figured inducing systemic spike protein synthesis was a death sentence or injury on topic of already precarious health and all my doctors were too chicken shit to give me an exemption.
So work like yours has helped my sanity a lot and also thankfully spared my family then 4th shot .
A Message to the UNVACCINATED
"Even if I were pollinated and fully vaccinated, I would admire the unvaccinated for withstanding the greatest pressure I have ever seen, even from partners, parents, children, friends, colleagues and doctors.
People who were capable of such personality, courage and critical ability are undoubtedly the best of humanity. They are everywhere, in all ages, levels of education, states and ideas. They are of a special kind; they are the soldiers that every army of light wants to have in its ranks. They are the parents that every child wants to have and the children that every parent dreams of having. They are beings above the average of their societies, they are the essence of the people who have built all cultures and conquered horizons. They are there, next to you, they look normal, but they are superheroes.
They did what others could not, they were the tree that withstood the hurricane of insults, discrimination and social exclusion. And they did it because they thought they were alone, and believed they were the only ones.
Banned from their families' tables at Christmas, they never saw anything so cruel. They lost their jobs, let their careers sink, had no more money ... but they didn't care. They suffered immeasurable discrimination, denunciation, betrayal and humiliation ... but they kept going.
Never before in humanity has there been such a "casting", now we know who are the best on planet Earth. Women, men, old, young, rich, poor, of all races or religions, the unvaccinated, the chosen of the invisible ark, the only ones who managed to resist when everything collapsed.
That's you, you passed an unimaginable test that many of the toughest Marines, Commandos, Green Berets, astronauts and geniuses could not withstand.
You are made of the stuff of the greatest who ever lived, those heroes born among ordinary men who glow in the dark."
