    This is a painful story for the families of three Navy SEALs. Two of the SEALs were lost at sea and a third was critically injured on a mission on January 11 in the Gulf of Aden between Yemen and Somalia. It was a mission that never should have been ordered, and when everything went wrong, it was covered up with a series of lies.

    Why report a story about two deaths and an injury when there is a president who has put America indirectly into wars in Ukraine, Israel, Yemen, and elsewhere in the Middle East? I have learned in six decades of chasing down hidden stories that it is delving into the little lies that reveals much about the bigger lies. So it has been in the past month with the story of the dead and injured SEALs.

    Middle East Dashing to WWIII! Kremlin Condemns Illegal US, UK Strikes on Houthis in Yemen. Germany to Join Mission

    Their target was a wooden smuggling vessel, operated by Somalis, that was suspected of delivering modern ballistic missiles or missile parts to America’s new enemy: the Houthis of Yemen. Somalis have been smuggling goods through the Red Sea and Indian Ocean in their wooden sailing vessels, known as dhows, since biblical times. Few have motors or any means of electronic communication, and the larger dhows, like the one targeted by the SEALs, often serve as living quarters for the smugglers’ families. (dhow is a a sailing boat with a long, thin hull – ed).

    The SEALs were assigned to a ship named the Lewis B. Puller, after a fabled combat general, the most decorated marine of all time, who fought in World War II against the Japanese, as well as in Haiti, in Central America, and in the Korean War. The ship, modeled on an oil tanker, is what the Navy calls an Expeditionary Mobile Base, which means that it is capable, with its landing decks, of supporting a vast number of air and sea military activities from all the services, including those of the Navy SEALs. The Puller was commissioned in 2017 in a port in Bahrain and was not much in the news until it became known that the failed SEAL mission took place.

    On January 13, the New York Times, citing two current and two former Pentagon officials, published the first account of the two deaths, which were said to have taken place while the SEALs were attempting to board a dhow at night.

    The Quoting of a Former SEAL Senior Chief

    The sea was rough, and one SEAL slipped off the boarding ladder. The initial report claimed that a second SEAL jumped into the water in an effort to save his colleague and both drowned. It was not clear whether he was also on the ladder or jumped from the inflatable speedboat known as a RHIB, for rigid hulled inflatable boat, that the SEALs used to approach the ship. A January 22 Times article about the incident, by Dave Philipps, known for his excellent sources in the special operations community, revealed that a third SEAL attempted to climb the ladder to board the dhow. He fell during the attempted boarding and struck the speedboat. He was rescued and today remains in critical condition.

    Philipps quoted a former SEAL senior chief explaining that he and his retired colleagues were convinced the story, as told by administration officials, “doesn’t make sense. Something else must have gone wrong.”

    There were questions at the time about President’s Biden decision in early January to expand the American war portfolio. He has taken on the Houthis, who had survived a seven-year war with the Saudi air force, supported by American bombs and targeting intelligence. That war ended with what amounted to a Saudi surrender. The American attacks, still being supported by British air power, are in their second month, and the world’s major shipping companies are still choosing not to chance a ten-day shortcut by sailing from Europe via the Suez Canal into the Red Sea. The Houthi threat is still there, pending an Israeli decision to cease its onslaught in the Gaza Strip. Ironically, or tragically, Biden is now said to be telling the Israelis that a ceasefire is needed. The world is coming to its own judgment about Biden, who is now seeking a second term.

    The Somali dhow offered the White House a chance to justify its new offensive. It had been tracked by American intelligence since leaving Somalia because it was believed to be carrying ballistic missile parts needed by the Houthis in their ongoing campaign against Western shipping; The basis for that intelligence, which proved to be wrong, has not been made known.

    Worse than Ukraine! In Yemen “Catastrophic” Hunger due to Saudi War: 400,000 Toddlers at “Risk of Death”

    Back to the Lewis B. Puller. The more than a dozen senior officers from all services assigned to the ship’s command center were gung-ho to send the hot-shot SEAL team to intercept the dhow, compel the boat to stand to, and board it to find ballistic missiles or parts of weapons that were coming to the Houthis from Iran, known to American intelligence as a longtime supporter and supplier of weaponry to Yemen. But there was a serious problem. The issue is what is known in the Navy as the Sea State Code, which is based on terminology used in oceanography to describe the general conditions of the ocean’s surface, as determined by three key factors: wind, waves, and swell.

    The Serious Problem of Sea State

    There are ten categories of sea state, and SEALs can operate with ease and safety up to sea state 3. One experienced retired senior American Navy officer told me that even four- and five-foot waves can sometimes create difficulties for a Navy tanker attempting to refuel an aircraft carrier, but it can be done with skilled maneuvering. No ship loaded with high-octane fighter fuel wants to crash into the side of a carrier.

    When the seas get higher, to level 4 or 5, the waves and stronger current make boarding a targeted vessel, even a wooden dhow, an extremely dangerous prospect, in part because of the difficulty in handling steel ladders, known as caving ladders, that are standard SEAL boarding gear. The steps are lightweight aluminum tubes linked by equally lightweight steel cables.

    US judge rules in favor of Navy SEALs Refusing Vaccination on Religious Grounds

    What is hard to do at sea state 3 is deadly dangerous at sea state 4 or 5, a retired Navy officer, with years of experience in special operations, told me. “The waves are going up and down eight feet and more and you do not board a ship in heavy sea,” he said. He added that Navy captains of combat ships finishing a long deployment understand that crews due for shore leave are not permitted to leave the ship in such churning waters.

    The retired officer said that when the officer on the Puller who was in charge of all special operation missions, an Army colonel, told “the SEAL team leader to ‘saddle up,’ the team leader told him to look outside the window.” His message was that “it was dark, and the sea was too rough. And it was beyond the capabilities of his team.” The retired officer added: “It was an argument between the on the scene commander and a guy in charge of the SEALs.”

    The SEAL team leader said no. But he was ordered to carry out the mission, despite the obvious weather issues, and he did so.

    The Mystery on a Ballistic Missile

    The questions that were not asked, the retired officer said, were these: “Do we know if the dhow is carrying a ballistic missile or a box full of missile parts?” No. “Can you get a key to a launch site?” No. “Or a map of all the Houthi launch sites?” No. “Do Somali smugglers know the difference between a case of Johnny Walker Red and one of Johnny Walter Black?” Yes.

    CIA-GATE – 1. Bulgarian Network to Weaponize Ukraine Intelligence and Middle-East’s Terrorists

    The decision to ignore the concerns of the SEAL commander has been seen by the angered SEAL community in America as “beyond rational planning” and “a disaster waiting to happen.” I learned that one high-ranking member of the community, now retired, wrote a private letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, asking that the officer who overruled the SEAL commander be court-martialed for dereliction of duty as the buck-stops-here boss of the operation. “It will never happen,” the former officer told me. “Dead SEALs will go down in Navy annals as heroes, not victims.” His point was that the Navy would never acknowledge that the SEAL team had no business being sent on a search-and-destroy mission in such weather.

    US launches ‘Retaliatory AirStrikes’ in the Middle East. Targeted 85 sites in Iraq and Syria. At least 18 People Died

    As many as nine SEALs may have been aboard the SEALs’ inflatable speedboat—there was a second boat with no SEALs aboard as backup—as it dashed to the dhow that, as ordered, came to a stop and acknowledged that it was to be boarded. Three SEALs began the treacherous climb aboard the vessel. It is not known just what happened—did one fall off the special ladder, made up of steel tubes and chain links? Or did the ladder, swaying to and from in the heavy sea with two SEALs making the climb and a third waiting to do so, suddenly get rocked by a huge wave that flung the men against the side of the dhow, leaving both unconscious or worse, with only to drop into the sea? The badly injured third SEAL survived only because he fell into one of the speedboats.

    Only Obsolete Rocket Motors and Pieces of Old Missiles on the Dhow

    The SEALs who made the climb into the dhow “did find the treasure,” the retired officer sardonically told me. “There were some obsolete rocket motors, all Iran-made, and some pieces of Styx missiles from the 1950s and ’60s, but no significant missile components among the cargo, other than ancient engines and some random tubes that had been used in missile attacks. There was the usual cargo of liquor, cigarettes, random knock-off clothing, porn cassettes.”

    The Somali smugglers were taken prisoner and placed on Navy vessels that came to the scene, and the dhow sent to the bottom.

    The two deaths were reported, but over the next few days, the retired officer said, all involved “were playing the game,” keeping as many details as possible under wraps. The Lewis B. Puller was locked down in extreme secrecy. The names of the dead were made public, but not that of the survivor, if he does survive. His is a story that no one in the Navy wants told. I learned that the commanding officer of the Lewis B. Puller, who graduated from the Naval Academy in 2000 and spent his career in Navy aviation—not as a pilot but as a backseat radar intercept officer—may be quietly retired, if the system works as it usually does.

    Gaza, Donbass, Syria: GENOCIDES of the Zionist, Nazi, Jihadist Regimes is US-NATO’s “New” Geopolitical WEAPON

    There is a Navy history for such arrogance and deception that dates to the end of the Second World War. The chief of Naval Operations was crusty Admiral Ernest King, a brilliant officer who played a key role in advising President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on military matters. When asked at one point by an aide what to tell the press about the progress of the war against the Japanese fleet, King famously said: “Don’t tell them anything. When it’s over, tell them who won.”

    In 2013, Hersh’s reporting alleged that Syrian rebel forces, rather than the government, had attacked civilians with sarin gas at Ghouta during the Syrian Civil War, and in 2015, he presented an alternative account of the U.S. special forces raid in Pakistan which killed Osama bin Laden. In 2023, Hersh highlighted that the U.S. and Norway had sabotaged the Nord Stream pipelines.

  • The Ultimate mRNA/Spike Detox?
    Whole Blood/Plasma Donation or Chinese Bloodletting

    Dr. Syed Haider
    Hijama Cupping Therapy Kiya hai aur is k Faiyday? Roman Urdu main Parhain
    The mRNA shots deliver toxic lipid nano particles (LNPs), whole spike mRNA, fragments of mRNA and trigger the production of spike protein and antibodies to the same, and possibly fragments of spike protein (see this substack).

    Furthermore both LNPs and spike protein trigger the creation of microclots in blood vessels.

    There are methods for detoxing from spike protein - for example you can take enzymes like bromelain to digest the spike protein, it can be bound up and more easily removed by taking ivermectin, you can induce autophagy to destroy it by fasting, cold and heat therapies and with supplements like resveratrol and spermidine.

    For microclots you can break them down with blood thinners like aspirin and enzymes like nattokinase and serrapeptase.

    But what about the mRNA and LNPs? How can those be removed?

    Thank you for reading Dr. Syed Haider. This post is public so feel free to share it.

    The mRNA shot components are taken up by cells throughout our bodies, but also found free floating in our blood, where they join other toxins, including horrific forever chemicals like dioxins, but also many other normal blood components including antibodies, proteins like albumin, red blood cells, white cells, platelets, fats, vitamins and minerals.

    Most of these blood components, except for red blood cells, can passively or actively diffuse out of the blood into our organs and tissues.

    Active diffusion means energy is involved in the process as when infection fighting white cells actively migrate out of the blood into tissues where they have been attracted by inflammatory messaging molecules.

    With active diffusion particles can be moved from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration - something that cannot happen without adding energy to the transport process.

    Passive diffusion means no energy is involved, and the substance in question simply diffuses down a concentration gradient from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration, until the concentrations equalize in all areas - think of smoke or cooking smells diffusing out of the kitchen to fill the whole house.


    So when substances like LNPs carrying mRNA enter the blood they will passively diffuse out into other tissues until the concentrations in the blood and those other tissues equalize.

    If a substance is removed from the blood, what is still in tissues will then diffuse back into the blood until the concentration in blood and tissues equalizes again - at a lower level than before, because there is less total left in the body.

    Repeatedly removing a substance from the blood would eventually deplete the whole body stores of that substance down to zero, unless it were being replaced from the outside (like the natural components of blood from diet and supplements).

    1000s of patients around the world have flocked to specialized centers that perform a procedure called H.E.L.P. apheresis in the hopes of filtering out microclots, free circulating spike protein and mRNA from their bloodstreams.

    I spoke with Dr Beate Jaeger for the free online Long COVID Reset Summit about her work with over 1500 long COVID and Vax injured patients, using both H.E.L.P. as well as prescription anticoagulants like plavix and heparin.

    She reported that with H.E.L.P. apheresis 95-99% of patients showed some degree of benefit and over 80% had very significant improvements or even complete reversal of symptoms.


    In one of the most remarkable and fast turnarounds she saw someone who had been confined to a wheelchair get up for the first time after a session.

    H.E.L.P. apheresis is a specialized version of the more general apheresis procedure which is a simple technology for separating blood components.

    Specifically H.E.L.P. stands for: “heparin-mediated extracorporeal low-density lipoprotein (LDL) fibrinogen precipitation”.

    Essentially a heparin infused filter aids in removal of LDL cholesterol, lipoprotein (a) (levels are far more predictive for heart disease than traditional cholesterol tests) and the clotting protein fibrinogen from the blood of patients.

    Historically this was used for patients with high cholesterol that couldn’t be adequately managed with statins and other traditional lipid lowering therapies.

    Now it has been repurposed to help remove microclots and spike protein, which binds to the heparin.

    Unfortunately there are only 1 or 2 centers that perform this in the US for long COVID and Vax injuries, and just a handful around the world.

    The procedure is also expensive - usually at least $1500 per treatment and often many treatments are required.

    Now, the heparin filter may be particularly helpful for binding spike protein, but there is a far more accessible technology called plasmapheresis (AKA plasma donation) which may work similarly.

    Plasmapheresis uses a centrifuge to separate our whole blood by weight from heaviest to lightest component into: red cells, white blood cells, platelets and a mix of everything else - termed plasma.

    Blood components, including plasma, white blood cells, platelets and red blood cells
    The plasma is removed while the blood cells and platelets are remixed with sterile salt water (at the same concentration as normal blood salt levels and added to the cells because the plasma component takes all the liquid and salt with it) and infused back into the person.

    Plasmapheresis (again the exact same procedure as plasma donation) is used therapeutically in a wide range of medical conditions wherein a toxic component (eg an autoimune antibody) is present in the blood.

    These conditions include Guillaine Barre Syndrome, Myesthenia Gravis, idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, hashimotos encephalopathy, multiple sclerosis, myeloma, severe systemic lupus erythematosis (SLE), ap[lastic anemia, acute liver failure, burn shock, complex regional pain syndrome, severe pemphigus vulgaris, stiff-person syndrome, thyroid storm, systemic amyloidosis and many more.

    Of most interest here is the usefulness of plasmapheresis for treating systemic amyloidosis, a disease caused by the buildup of amyloid protein throughout the body, because spike protein toxicity also includes the creation of amyloid inside microclots as well as outside the vasculature.

    There are few contraindications to plasmapheresis including allergies to the common blood thinner heparin (since the tubing is heparinized to avoid blood clotting), low blood calcium levels and ACE inhibitor use within 24 hours.

    Possible side effects are minimal and can include low electrolytes levels including low blood calcium and magnesium (which may require replacement), hypothermia since blood is hot and that heat is removed from the body, and an increased tendency to bleed due to removal of clotting proteins.

    But in general it is a very safe procedure that is conducted on both healthy and ill people daily throughout the world.

    So if everything but the blood cells and platelets are removed we would expect that any toxins would be removed from the blood whether they be circulating forever chemicals, LNPs, mRNA, unwanted antibodies (eg autoantibodies), heavy metals, etc.

    At the same time we would be removing some vitamins and minerals, so if this procedure was done frequently you would want to be sure you focused on a highly nutrient dense diet as well as appropriate supplementation.

    Plasma donation is either free or at some private centers reimbursed at $20-$50 per procedure, because it is sold and used to create medical products.

    Depending on the center donations can be given as often as twice weekly or as little as 6 times a year, and each donation can remove as much as 800ml of plasma.

    Alternatively whole blood donations are only possible every 56 days. In a whole blood donation, nothing is separated or reinfused, you just remove about 500ml of whole blood.

    Bloodletting has actually been used as a therapeutic procedure for millennia throughout the world (perhaps most notoriously it’s been suspected by medical historians that physicians may have killed George Washington by overdoing it during his final deathbed illness).

    There are many different ways it has been done including by leeches and wet cupping (tiny nicks made in the skin covered by suction cups that draw blood out).

    Dean Mouscher is an advanced clinical acupuncturist in Illinois who performs and teaches traditional techniques of blood letting for ameliorating the toughest to treat medical conditions.

    His methods are described in his popular manual, The Complete Guide to Chinese Medicine Bloodletting.

    He explained in a comment on the last post about removing forever chemicals like dioxins that the location of bloodletting may actually be more important than the amount of blood removed:

    “…as an acupuncturist I use many modalities in my practice, but none comes close to the magical efficacy of bloodletting. Chinese Medicine Bloodletting is different from the old Western bloodletting as it is based on taking small amounts of blood from exactly the right point, rather than pints from the cubital fossa. As it happens, Chinese medicine has bloodletting points specifically for detox, right on the scapula.”

    Wet (HIJAMA) Cupping - Holistic Buddha
    This is very interesting, because you would expect that in a structure as complex as the human body, toxins would concentrate in certain areas, so removing blood from those areas might be far more effective (and less draining) than removing large amounts from elsewhere.

    Unsurprisingly there have been no studies that I could find of bloodletting, plasma donation, or even H.E.L.P. apheresis for either mRNA shot detoxification or Long COVID.

    The best we have to go on for now are Dr Beate Jaegers reports and although she is very interested in conducting formal research she doesn’t have the funding to do so.

    The one study I could find that supported the use of whole blood and plasma donation for toxin removal was described in the last Substack on the Ohio train wreck toxic explosion, in this quote taken from a May 2022 Guardian article:

    “A new study published in JAMA Network Open tracked PFAS levels in 285 Australian firefighters, who are regularly exposed to PFAS in firefighting foam and accrue high levels of the chemicals in their bodies. Over a year, one group of firefighters donated plasma every six weeks, another donated blood every 12 weeks, and a third group acted as a control.

    “This randomized clinical trial showed that regular blood or plasma donations result in a significant reduction in serum PFAS levels for participants,” the study’s authors wrote. Blood donors reduced their PFAS levels by 10%, and plasma donors reduced theirs by 30%. Both groups maintained their reduction for at least three months post-trial. The study did not explore whether a reduction in PFAS in the blood necessarily leads to better health.”

    Despite the lack of published evidence some long haulers and vax injured have tried plasmapheresis on themselves and reported impressive results, which are often immediate.

  • The Truth About HPV Vaccination, Part 2: Studies Link the Vaccines to Neurological, Autoimmune Disorders
    Researchers who looked closely into the Gardasil HPV vaccine concluded the risks from the vaccine seem to significantly outweigh the as-yet-unproven long-term benefits.

    The Epoch Times

    Miss a day, miss a lot. Subscribe to The Defender's Top News of the Day. It's free.

    By Dr. Yuhong Dong

    Editor’s Note: This second installment in a multi-part series about the human papillomavirus, or HPV, vaccine examines studies that link the vaccines to increased risk of serious neurological and autoimmune disorders. Read Part 1 here.

    Summary of key facts

    A Danish review of 79,102 female and 16,568 male subjects, found human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines had significantly increased rates of serious nervous system disorders. Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and complex regional pain syndrome were judged “definitely associated” with the HPV vaccine.
    A large Danish and Swedish study including nearly 300,000 girls found a significant association between the HPV vaccine and increased rates of Bechet’s syndrome (rate ratio 3.37), Raynaud’s disease (1.67) and type 1 diabetes (1.29).
    A large study including 3 million Danish and Swedish women aged 18 to 44, identified seven adverse events with statistically significant increased risks following HPV vaccination: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, celiac disease, lupus erythematosus, pemphigus vulgaris, Addison’s disease, Raynaud’s disease and encephalitis, myelitis, or encephalomyelitis.
    A 2017 French study of over 2.2 million young girls found evidence of a 3.78-fold increased risk of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). A 2011 U.S. study found nearly a two-and-a-half to 10 times greater risk of acquiring GBS within six weeks post-Gardasil vaccination.
    While the underlying mechanisms causing these autoimmune reactions are not yet fully understood, some researchers speculate that the sizable overlap in protein sequences between the HPV and the human genome may cause the immune system to attack itself. Others are concerned that the adjuvants (such as aluminum) used to attract the attention of the immune system may be causing harm.
    Neurological and autoimmune disorders

    Danish review found increased nervous system disorder

    In 2020, a group of Danish scientists conducted a systematic review of the overall benefits and harms of HPV vaccines.

    Twenty-four eligible randomized controlled clinical studies were obtained, with a total of 95,670 participants, mostly women, and 49 months mean weighted follow-up.

    Almost all controls were given an active comparator vaccine (typically a hepatitis vaccine with a comparable aluminum-based adjuvant).

    Given that the adjuvant is highly immunogenic by design (it is meant to grab the attention of the immune system), this trial design makes it difficult to detect an excess risk with the HPV vaccines.

    Without true controls (such as a saline placebo), the real risks of HPV vaccination cannot be accurately assessed.

    In the vaccine group, 367 cancers were detected, compared to 490 in the comparator group.

    Younger participants (15 to 29) seemed to benefit more from the vaccine concerning preventing moderate HPV-related intraepithelial neoplasia compared to older participants (ages 21 to 72). Younger participants also had fewer fatal harms.

    Even though the studies were flawed in their design, at four years post-vaccination, those who had received the HPV vaccines had significantly increased rates of serious nervous system disorders: 49%, as well as general harms totaling 7%.

    The serious harms that were judged “definitely associated” with HPV vaccines were postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and complex regional pain syndrome. POTS had a nearly twofold increase in the vaccinated group.

    By July 2017, only two-thirds of the results from HPV vaccine trials had been published, and only about half the results had been posted, due to manuscript length limitations, reporting bias and confounding journal articles offering a limited view of trial outcomes.

    This Danish systematic review compiled data from all the HPV trials to offer a summary of the evidence thus far.

    Nevertheless, the investigators acknowledged that despite three years of work, the limitations of their analysis remained. These included reporting bias, incomplete reporting, data fragmentation and limited trial follow-up.

    These investigators similarly note that the trials were powered to assess the benefits of HPV vaccination, not rare harms. The degree to which benefits outweigh risks is therefore unknown.

    They concluded that future research should carefully evaluate the harms following Gardasil 9 compared to Gardasil because the former contains more than double the virus proteins and aluminum-containing adjuvant than the same dose of Gardasil.

    Large studies reveal autoimmune events

    In 2009, the HPV4 vaccine was integrated into the Danish childhood vaccination program. Since then, two large cohort studies on the HPV4 vaccine adverse events have been carried out using the hospital-based healthcare registries of Denmark and Sweden.

    The first study in Denmark and Sweden included 296,826 girls aged 10 to 17 who received a total of 696,420 HPV4 vaccine doses.

    The scientists evaluated rate ratios for autoimmune events and found no significant association for 20 out of 23 events.

    They found a significant association between the HPV4 vaccine and Bechet’s syndrome (rate ratio 3.37), Raynaud’s disease (1.67) and type 1 diabetes (1.29).

    But after further review, they concluded that there was insufficient evidence for a causal association, because of the weakness of the signal and the lack of an underlying mechanism to explain biological plausibility.

    In a second large cohort study, the same team expanded their research to more than 3 million Danish and Swedish adult women aged 18 to 44.

    The authors identified seven adverse events with statistically significant increased risks following HPV4 vaccination: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, celiac disease, lupus erythematosus, pemphigus vulgaris, Addison’s disease, Raynaud’s disease and encephalitis, myelitis or encephalomyelitis.

    After sensitivity analyses, the association between HPV4 vaccination and celiac disease was the most robust finding.

    Celiac disease is a condition where a person’s immune system attacks the body’s own gut after eating gluten.

    As the graph below shows, the scientists used two risk periods after HPV4 vaccination: the first 180 days and after.

    1 time since first dose HPV4 vaccine coeliac cases
    Time since the first dose of the HPV4 vaccine for vaccinated coeliac cases in a cohort of Danish and Swedish women. Credit: Journal of Internal Medicine
    The authors noted that the observed 56% increased risk of celiac disease “was strong, and the increase was strikingly similar in both risk periods after vaccination.”

    Celiac disease is underdiagnosed in Denmark.

    So one possible explanation is that vaccination visits allow a chance for this and other conditions to be diagnosed and explored.

    This explanation suggests that the association between the HPV vaccine and autoimmune disorders may be coincidental.

    However, given the lack of any real control groups in these studies, as well as the growing body of scientific literature from countries around the world showing problems with the HPV vaccine, dismissing these safety signals as coincidence seems short-sighted.

    Large French study and U.S. VAERS study identify risks of Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    The concern about autoimmune disease adverse events has contributed to low HPV vaccination uptake in France.

    A 2017 study of over 2.2 million young girls in France found troubling evidence of a link with Guillain-Barré syndrome. GBS is a condition that arises when our own antibodies attack the nerves.

    The incidence of GBS was found to be 1.4 per 100,000 person-years among the vaccinated girls compared to 0.4 per 100,000 among the unvaccinated, resulting in an increased risk of GBS of more than 200%.

    The association appeared to be “particularly marked in the first months following vaccination.”

    This finding is corroborated by the pattern of adverse reactions reported worldwide. Data from a large number of case reports document similar serious adverse events associated with Gardasil administration, with nervous system disorders of autoimmune origin being the most frequently reported.

    A 2011 U.S. study found that the estimated weekly reporting rate of post-Gardasil GBS within the first six weeks (6.6 per 10,000,000) was higher than in the general population, and higher than post-Menactra and post-influenza vaccinations.

    In particular, there was nearly a two-and-a-half to 10 times greater risk of acquiring GBS within six weeks after vaccination, compared to the general population.

    Additionally, the study found Gardasil vaccination was associated with approximately eight-and-a-half times more emergency department visits, 12.5 times more hospitalizations, 10 times more life-threatening events and 26.5 times more disability than the Menactra vaccination.

    Plausible mechanisms of harm

    Despite the conflicting data in the scientific literature to date, it is clear that the HPV vaccines can cause autoimmune disorders in susceptible people. But how?

    Autoimmunity has been reported as a complication of natural infection as well as virus vaccination. This phenomenon has been observed with many viruses, including the Epstein-Barr virus, COVID-19 and HPV.

    According to a 2019 study, the HPV vaccine contains epitopes — portions of the virus proteins — that overlap with the human proteins.

    This means that if we develop antibodies to those viruses, we may also generate autoantibodies to our own cells, which is the root cause of autoimmune dysfunction.

    The study showed that most of the immunoreactive HPV L1 epi­topes are overlapping peptides present in human proteins.

    The authors explained that this “unexpected enormous size of the peptide overlap between the HPV epitopes and human proteins” is relevant, and may be why a wide variety of autoimmune diseases have been reported post-HPV vaccination, including ovarian failure, systemic lupus erythematosus, breast cancer and sudden death, among others.

    Why some people develop these conditions and others do not is unclear.

    The authors suggest that vaccines should target the few peptides that do not overlap with human proteins, but which do overlap with the other HPVs.

    Despite this overlap and the potential for causing autoimmune disease, medical doctors usually ignore or dismiss the connection. We are told that these diseases are rare.

    The human body has something called immune tolerance. This protects a person’s immune system against attacking itself. Therefore, HPV infection is also “immune tolerated,” which means it lays dormant for some time until it becomes cancerous.

    HPV vaccination was actually designed with this immune tolerance in mind.

    Given the human body’s built-in defenses against autoimmune conditions, vaccinology requires an immunogenic catalyst to get the body’s attention. This is the job of an adjuvant.

    An adjuvant is an ingredient used in a vaccine that the body recognizes as foreign. It is added to vaccines so that the body will mount a stronger immune response.

    The idea is that in attacking the adjuvant, the body will also recognize other vaccine ingredients (in this case, purified HPV proteins).

    In addition, the antigen dose is much higher than in natural infections and the capsids in the vaccine are directly exposed to systemic immune responses as opposed to the virus staying relatively hidden within the natural barrier of the skin following infection.

    The vaccine was well-designed to trigger an immune response, but this advantage may come at a cost: Generating antibodies to HPV proteins through vaccination could, theoretically, set the stage for an autoimmune attack.

    Link between HPV-vaccine-associated nervous system dysfunction and autoimmunity

    A December 2022 Danish and German study was designed to elucidate a possible mechanism of harm.

    The lead author, Dr. Jesper Mehlsen, a specialist in treating autoimmune conditions, noted that the HPV major capsid L1s antigen resembles human autonomic nerve receptors, including G-protein coupled receptors (GPCR).

    According to the researchers, in the past several years, case series of suspected vaccination side effects have pointed to three disease entities: POTS, myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and complex regional pain syndrome. These syndromes may be associated with neuroendocrine GPCR antibodies.

    From 2011 to 2018, researchers saw 845 patients (839 females, six males) with suspected side effects following the HPV4 vaccine. The control group included vaccinated people without side effects.

    Moderate to severe fatigue was recorded in 83.3% of the patients but in none of the controls.

    A high prevalence of symptoms, such as dizziness (91%), heart palpitations (71%), nausea (80%) and hyperactive bladder suggested that the patients were experiencing some kind of autonomic dysfunction.

    Autonomic dysfunction occurs when the part of the nervous system that controls well-being and balance does not function properly.

    Antibodies against the adrenergic ß-2-receptor and muscarinic M-2 receptors were also found significantly higher in patients.

    Many of the symptoms, including immune activation and autonomic dysregulation, could be mediated or aggravated by dysregulated autoantibodies against adrenergic receptors and impaired peripheral adrenergic function.

    The authors suggested that girls and women with probable side effects of HPV vaccination have symptoms and biological markers compatible with an autoimmune disease closely resembling that seen in ME/CFS.

    Interestingly, people who already had HPV infections at some point appeared to be at greater risk for adverse events following vaccination.

    The authors noted that “prior disease may precondition some individuals for vaccine-related adverse events.”

    They also noted that some of the adverse events resembled long-COVID symptoms.

    Universal HPV vaccination called into question

    Academic researcher at the University of British Columbia, Lucija Tomljenovic, and neuroscientist Christopher Shaw, who have closely looked into Gardasil, have argued that the risks from the vaccine seem to significantly outweigh the as-yet-unproven long-term benefits.

    In a 2012 comment published in the American Journal of Public Health, they took issue with “incomplete and inaccurate” data and poorly designed trials.

    Vaccination is unjustified if the vaccine carries any substantial risk, as healthy teenagers face little to no risk of dying from cervical cancer.

    Risk-benefit analyses must be conducted to ascertain the overall balance of benefits and harms on both individual and societal levels.

    The Truth About HPV Vaccination, Part 2: Studies Link the Vaccines to Neurological, Autoimmune Disorders Researchers who looked closely into the Gardasil HPV vaccine concluded the risks from the vaccine seem to significantly outweigh the as-yet-unproven long-term benefits. The Epoch Times Miss a day, miss a lot. Subscribe to The Defender's Top News of the Day. It's free. By Dr. Yuhong Dong Editor’s Note: This second installment in a multi-part series about the human papillomavirus, or HPV, vaccine examines studies that link the vaccines to increased risk of serious neurological and autoimmune disorders. Read Part 1 here. Summary of key facts A Danish review of 79,102 female and 16,568 male subjects, found human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines had significantly increased rates of serious nervous system disorders. Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and complex regional pain syndrome were judged “definitely associated” with the HPV vaccine. A large Danish and Swedish study including nearly 300,000 girls found a significant association between the HPV vaccine and increased rates of Bechet’s syndrome (rate ratio 3.37), Raynaud’s disease (1.67) and type 1 diabetes (1.29). A large study including 3 million Danish and Swedish women aged 18 to 44, identified seven adverse events with statistically significant increased risks following HPV vaccination: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, celiac disease, lupus erythematosus, pemphigus vulgaris, Addison’s disease, Raynaud’s disease and encephalitis, myelitis, or encephalomyelitis. A 2017 French study of over 2.2 million young girls found evidence of a 3.78-fold increased risk of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). A 2011 U.S. study found nearly a two-and-a-half to 10 times greater risk of acquiring GBS within six weeks post-Gardasil vaccination. While the underlying mechanisms causing these autoimmune reactions are not yet fully understood, some researchers speculate that the sizable overlap in protein sequences between the HPV and the human genome may cause the immune system to attack itself. Others are concerned that the adjuvants (such as aluminum) used to attract the attention of the immune system may be causing harm. Neurological and autoimmune disorders Danish review found increased nervous system disorder In 2020, a group of Danish scientists conducted a systematic review of the overall benefits and harms of HPV vaccines. Twenty-four eligible randomized controlled clinical studies were obtained, with a total of 95,670 participants, mostly women, and 49 months mean weighted follow-up. Almost all controls were given an active comparator vaccine (typically a hepatitis vaccine with a comparable aluminum-based adjuvant). Given that the adjuvant is highly immunogenic by design (it is meant to grab the attention of the immune system), this trial design makes it difficult to detect an excess risk with the HPV vaccines. Without true controls (such as a saline placebo), the real risks of HPV vaccination cannot be accurately assessed. In the vaccine group, 367 cancers were detected, compared to 490 in the comparator group. Younger participants (15 to 29) seemed to benefit more from the vaccine concerning preventing moderate HPV-related intraepithelial neoplasia compared to older participants (ages 21 to 72). Younger participants also had fewer fatal harms. Even though the studies were flawed in their design, at four years post-vaccination, those who had received the HPV vaccines had significantly increased rates of serious nervous system disorders: 49%, as well as general harms totaling 7%. The serious harms that were judged “definitely associated” with HPV vaccines were postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and complex regional pain syndrome. POTS had a nearly twofold increase in the vaccinated group. By July 2017, only two-thirds of the results from HPV vaccine trials had been published, and only about half the results had been posted, due to manuscript length limitations, reporting bias and confounding journal articles offering a limited view of trial outcomes. This Danish systematic review compiled data from all the HPV trials to offer a summary of the evidence thus far. Nevertheless, the investigators acknowledged that despite three years of work, the limitations of their analysis remained. These included reporting bias, incomplete reporting, data fragmentation and limited trial follow-up. These investigators similarly note that the trials were powered to assess the benefits of HPV vaccination, not rare harms. The degree to which benefits outweigh risks is therefore unknown. They concluded that future research should carefully evaluate the harms following Gardasil 9 compared to Gardasil because the former contains more than double the virus proteins and aluminum-containing adjuvant than the same dose of Gardasil. RFK Jr. and Brian Hooker Vax-Unvax RFK Jr. and Brian Hooker’s New Book: “Vax-Unvax” Order Now Large studies reveal autoimmune events In 2009, the HPV4 vaccine was integrated into the Danish childhood vaccination program. Since then, two large cohort studies on the HPV4 vaccine adverse events have been carried out using the hospital-based healthcare registries of Denmark and Sweden. The first study in Denmark and Sweden included 296,826 girls aged 10 to 17 who received a total of 696,420 HPV4 vaccine doses. The scientists evaluated rate ratios for autoimmune events and found no significant association for 20 out of 23 events. They found a significant association between the HPV4 vaccine and Bechet’s syndrome (rate ratio 3.37), Raynaud’s disease (1.67) and type 1 diabetes (1.29). But after further review, they concluded that there was insufficient evidence for a causal association, because of the weakness of the signal and the lack of an underlying mechanism to explain biological plausibility. In a second large cohort study, the same team expanded their research to more than 3 million Danish and Swedish adult women aged 18 to 44. The authors identified seven adverse events with statistically significant increased risks following HPV4 vaccination: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, celiac disease, lupus erythematosus, pemphigus vulgaris, Addison’s disease, Raynaud’s disease and encephalitis, myelitis or encephalomyelitis. After sensitivity analyses, the association between HPV4 vaccination and celiac disease was the most robust finding. Celiac disease is a condition where a person’s immune system attacks the body’s own gut after eating gluten. As the graph below shows, the scientists used two risk periods after HPV4 vaccination: the first 180 days and after. 1 time since first dose HPV4 vaccine coeliac cases Time since the first dose of the HPV4 vaccine for vaccinated coeliac cases in a cohort of Danish and Swedish women. Credit: Journal of Internal Medicine The authors noted that the observed 56% increased risk of celiac disease “was strong, and the increase was strikingly similar in both risk periods after vaccination.” Celiac disease is underdiagnosed in Denmark. So one possible explanation is that vaccination visits allow a chance for this and other conditions to be diagnosed and explored. This explanation suggests that the association between the HPV vaccine and autoimmune disorders may be coincidental. However, given the lack of any real control groups in these studies, as well as the growing body of scientific literature from countries around the world showing problems with the HPV vaccine, dismissing these safety signals as coincidence seems short-sighted. Large French study and U.S. VAERS study identify risks of Guillain-Barré Syndrome The concern about autoimmune disease adverse events has contributed to low HPV vaccination uptake in France. A 2017 study of over 2.2 million young girls in France found troubling evidence of a link with Guillain-Barré syndrome. GBS is a condition that arises when our own antibodies attack the nerves. The incidence of GBS was found to be 1.4 per 100,000 person-years among the vaccinated girls compared to 0.4 per 100,000 among the unvaccinated, resulting in an increased risk of GBS of more than 200%. The association appeared to be “particularly marked in the first months following vaccination.” This finding is corroborated by the pattern of adverse reactions reported worldwide.

    The decline of public trust in COVID-19 vaccines significantly impacts vaccination rates against routine childhood diseases. This multiple-part series explores the international research done over the past two decades on the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine — believed to be one of the most effective vaccines developed to date.

    Summary of Key Facts

    This multiple-part series offers a thorough analysis of concerns raised about HPV vaccination following the global HPV campaign, which commenced in 2006.
    In the U.S., the HPV vaccine was reported to have a disproportionately higher percentage of adverse events of fainting and blood clots in the veins. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) acknowledges that fainting can happen following the HPV vaccine, and recommends sitting or lying down to get the shot, then waiting for 15 minutes afterward.
    International scientists found that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) logged a substantial increase in reports of premature ovarian failure from 1.4 per year before 2006 to 22.2 per year after the HPV vaccine approval, yielding a Proportional Reporting Ratio of 46.1.
    The HPV vaccine is widely regarded as one of the most effective vaccines developed to date. Nevertheless, safety issues have been raised following its approval, and in response, additional research has been published and litigation has been brought on behalf of those with a vaccine injury.

    In this HPV vaccine series, Parts I and II explain how the vaccine works and the evidence suggesting there may be legitimate safety concerns. The remaining parts present questions about real-world vaccine effectiveness and identify specific ingredients which may pose harm.

    The information presented here is drawn from peer-reviewed scientific literature from the U.S., Australia, Denmark, Sweden, France and Japan, as well as statistics published by public health agencies in each of these countries.

    More than 100 hours of research and internal peer review among scientists with experience in infectious diseases, virology, clinical trials and vaccine epidemiology have been invested in presenting this summary of the evidence.

    Large registry-based studies have identified plausible associations between HPV vaccination and autoimmune conditions, including premature ovarian insufficiency or premature ovarian failure, Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and chronic regional pain syndrome.

    While it is easy to be enthusiastic about recent advances in human vaccine technology, we should keep in mind that achieving real and lasting good health is much more than just the absence of a certain virus.

    What is HPV?

    According to the CDC, HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the U.S.

    HPV is a small DNA virus infecting human cutaneous epithelial cells in the mucosa and skin. More than 150 strains of the HPV virus have been identified.

    HPV infection is so common that the majority of sexually active people will get it at some point in their lives, even if they have only one or very few sexual partners. It can spread through sexual intercourse and oral sex. It can also pass between people through skin-to-skin contact, even by people who have no symptoms.

    HPV infection causes genital warts, some of which can turn into cancer. For the most part, however, HPV infection is benign. More than 90% of HPV infections cause no clinical symptoms and are self-limited, meaning the virus is cleared by the body via natural immunological defenses.

    HPV-associated cancers

    High-risk HPV types (types 16, 18 and others) can cause cervical cell abnormalities that are precursors to cancers.

    Type 16 is associated with approximately 50% of cervical cancers worldwide, and types 16 and 18 together are linked to 66% of cervical cancers.

    An additional five high-risk types, 31, 33, 45, 52 and 58, are linked with another 15% of cervical cancers and 11% of all HPV-associated cancers.

    Infection with a high-risk HPV type is associated with a higher chance of the development of cervical cancer but, by itself, HPV infection is not the sole risk factor to cause cancer. There are many other reasons, as discussed in this paper.

    Given the prevalence of infection, it is unsurprising that globally, cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women. In 2018, an estimated 570,000 women were diagnosed with cervical cancer worldwide and more than 300,000 died of the disease.

    In the U.S., nearly 50,000 new HPV-associated cancers occur annually, with women infected at a slightly higher rate than men.

    But in 9 out of 10 cases, HPV goes away within two years without causing health problems.

    Only persistent HPV infections may lead to cancer. These infections evade the immune system’s innate cell-mediated defenses.

    The incidence of cervical cancer can be controlled as a result of the implementation of routine testing and screening, including Pap and DNA tests.

    HPV vaccines

    Three HPV vaccines — bivalent HPV vaccine (Cervarix, 2vHPV), quadrivalent HPV vaccine (Gardasil, 4vHPV or HPV4) and 9-valent HPV vaccine (Gardasil 9, 9vHPV) — have been licensed by the FDA.

    The HPV vaccine uses recombinant technology to assemble the shell of the virus — L1 capsid protein. These viral-like particles do not contain the virus genome and are not infectious.

    Cervarix, developed by GlaxoSmithKline, is a bivalent vaccine against HPV types 16 and 18, that was pulled from the U.S. market in 2016 due to “very low market demand.”

    Merck’s original Gardasil vaccine was designed to prevent infections from four strains (types 6, 11, 16 and 18).

    On June 8, 2006, after the FDA’s fast-tracked review, Gardasil was approved for use in females ages 9 to 26 for the prevention of cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancers.

    According to the label accompanying the vaccine, the ingredients in Merck’s first Gardasil vaccine were proteins of HPV, amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, yeast protein, sodium chloride, L-histidine, polysorbate 80, sodium borate and water for injection.

    On Oct. 16, 2009, the FDA approved Gardasil (HPV4) for use in boys ages 9 through 26 for the prevention of genital warts caused by HPV types 6 and 11, but not for cancer.

    In 2010, it approved Gardasil for the prevention of anal cancer in males and females ages 9 to 26.

    Four years later, the FDA approved an updated vaccine, Merck’s Gardasil 9, for use in girls ages 9 to 26 and boys ages 9 to 15 for the prevention of cervical, vaginal and anal cancers.

    Gardasil 9 contains the same ingredients as Gardasil, but offers protection against nine HPV strains, adding five additional types (HPV types 31, 33, 45, 52 and 58).

    The current HPV vaccination schedule recommended by the CDC is two doses for both boys and girls aged 11 or 12. However, it is approved for children as young as 9. The second dose is given 6 to 12 months after the first.

    For those aged 15 and above, a three-dose schedule is implemented at one- to two-month and six-month intervals, although antibody-level studies suggest that two doses are sufficient.

    The vaccine prompts the body to produce neutralizing antibodies against HPV. Antibody responses appear to peak seven months after the first dose (or one month after the third dose). The vaccine-induced antibody levels appear to be 10 to 100 times higher than those after natural infection.

    The high vaccine effectiveness (90 to 98%) against the fast-growing, abnormal cells which may cause precancerous lesions in people ages 16 to 26 suggested that the best timing for vaccination was to give it to patients before they became sexually active.

    HPV VAERS reports from 2 large countries

    U.S. HPV vaccine adverse events

    On Aug. 19, 2009, the Journal of the American Medical Association published an article authored by scientists from the FDA and CDC that reviewed the safety data for Gardasil for adverse events reported to VAERS between June 2006 through December 2008.

    During that time, there were 12,424 reports of adverse events. Of these, 772 (6.2%) were serious.

    VAERS is a passive surveillance system, which is subject to multiple limitations, including underreporting, unconfirmed diagnosis, lack of denominator data and no unbiased comparison groups.

    Nevertheless, it is a useful and important tool for detecting postmarket safety issues with vaccines.

    A disproportionately high percentage of Gardasil VAERS reports were of syncope (fainting) and venous thromboembolic events (blood clots in the veins) compared with other vaccines. There were 8.2 syncope events per 100,000 HPV doses and 0.2 venous thromboembolic events per 100,000 HPV doses reported, respectively.

    The Gardasil package insert includes a warning about fainting, fever, dizziness, nausea and headaches (page 1) and notes at least the following adverse reactions reported during postmarketing surveillance (section 6.2): Guillain-Barré syndrome, transverse myelitis, motor neuron disease, venous thromboembolic events, pancreatitis and autoimmune disorders.

    Australia HPV vaccines adverse events

    In 2007, Australia reported an annual adverse drug reaction rate of 7.3/100,000, the highest since 2003, representing an 85% increase from 2006.

    Per the analysis of the Adverse Drug Reactions System database by the Australian Department of Health and Aging, this increase was “almost entirely due to” reports following the national rollout of the three-dose HPV vaccination program for young females in April 2007; 705 of the 1,538 adverse drug reactions reported that year were from the Gardasil vaccine.

    Moreover, though people may take different vaccines other than HPV, the HPV vaccine was the only suspected vaccine to cause adverse reactions in 96% of records. Twenty-nine percent had causality ratings of “certain” or “probable” and 6% were defined as “serious.”

    Japan withdraws recommendation, vaccine acceptance plunged

    In 2013, the Japanese raised concerns about a variety of widely reported post-vaccination serious adverse events. This led the government to suspend recommending the HPV vaccine for six years. Vaccine acceptance of HPV in Japan plunged significantly after 2013, from 42.9% to 14.3%, or from 65.4% to 3.9%.

    Researchers around the world also started to investigate HPV safety. A World Health Organization (WHO) position paper released on July 14, 2017, concluded that the HPV vaccines were “extremely safe.”

    The same report estimated approximately 1.7 cases of anaphylaxis per million HPV doses, that no association with GBS was found, and that syncope (fainting) was “established as a common anxiety or stress-related reaction to the injection.”

    In the spring of 2022, Japan announced it was relaunching its HPV vaccination drive. Mainstream news outlets reported that for thousands of women, the cost of caution may have led to preventable HPV-induced cancers and an estimated 5,000 to 5,700 deaths.

    However, a true risk-benefit analysis would also consider the number of serious adverse events prevented by putting the program on hold. The question remains: Was Japan’s caution warranted, or should their national vaccination program have continued?

    Ovarian insufficiency

    Concerns that the vaccine may be negatively affecting fertility have been detailed in the scientific literature.

    In 2014, a peer-reviewed case series describing premature ovarian failure among Australian women following HPV vaccination was published in the Journal of Investigative Medicine.

    This prompted other researchers to systematically examine the VAERS data to see if there was a connection between premature ovarian failure and Gardasil. Their study found a “potential safety signal” and concluded that “further investigations are warranted.”

    VAERS analysis on ovarian failure

    Two recent publications based on VAERS reports (first study, second study) found that events with a probable autoimmune background were significantly more frequent after HPV vaccination compared to other vaccinations.

    The team of international scientists that did the second study evaluated reports between 1990 and 2018. They found that among the 228,341 premature ovarian failure reports, 0.1% was considered to be associated with HPV vaccination with a median age of 15 years and the time to onset was 20.5 days following vaccination.

    The primary symptoms were amenorrhea (80.4%) and premature menopause (15.3%).

    Most strikingly, the mean number of premature ovarian failure cases increased significantly from 1.4 per year prior to 2006 to 22.2 per year after the HPV vaccine was approved, with a proportional reporting ratio of 46.

    The investigators noted that the WHO and CDC declared the HPV vaccine safe regardless of lacking adequate research into safety concerns.

    For example, the authors note that in a CDC-sponsored VAERS study, 17 cases of premature ovarian failure were identified but 15 were excluded due to insufficient information to confirm the diagnosis. A separate observational study using the Vaccine Safety Datalink found no increased risk.

    But this study was too underpowered to detect a signal. In addition, a cross-sectional survey study using National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey data relied on an inaccurate measurement of premature ovarian failure and self-reported HPV vaccination.

    In summary, the researchers detected a strong safety signal even after accounting for a potential upswing in reports due to media coverage after the product launch (they refer to this as “notoriety bias”).

    Because VAERS is a passive reporting system, the data may be incomplete and are often unconfirmed by physicians. Therefore, this study cannot provide a definitive link between HPV vaccination and premature ovarian insufficiency or premature ovarian failure but does generate a hypothetical link.

    The authors of the second study conclude by insisting that “this signal warrants well-designed and appropriate epidemiological research.” They note that “if the signal is confirmed, the risk is small compared to the lifetime risk of cervical cancer.”

    However, the benefit-risk profile on an individual level is not uniform.

    Given the health impacts of premature ovarian insufficiency and premature ovarian failure — some of which may be irreversible — and the declining mortality rate for cervical cancer even in the prevaccine era, the risk-benefit profile for HPV vaccination remains unclear.

    3 case reports on ovarian insufficiency

    In the 2014 investigation mentioned above, a general practitioner in Australia noticed that three girls developed premature ovarian insufficiency following HPV4 vaccination.

    As a result of vaccination, each of the girls (ages 16, 16 and 18) had been prescribed oral contraception to treat menstrual cycle irregularities. Typically, women present with amenorrhea (no periods) or oligomenorrhea (infrequent periods) as the initial symptom of premature ovarian insufficiency.

    One girl had irregular periods following three doses of HPV vaccination. She then became amenorrheic and was diagnosed with premature ovarian insufficiency.

    Another girl’s periods were “like clockwork” until after the third HPV dose, which she received at age 15. Her first cycle after being vaccinated for the third time started two weeks late, and her next cycle was two months late. The final cycle began nine months later. The patient had no family history of early menopause.

    She was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure at 16. Lab work found hormone levels consistent with those of postmenopausal women, but her bone mineral density was normal.

    The authors of this case series noted that in preclinical studies of HPV4, the five-week-old rats only conceived one litter and the only available toxicology studies appear to be on the male rodent reproductive system.

    However, only two of three doses were administered prior to mating, and the overall fecundity was 95%, slightly lower than the control rats (98%) that received no vaccination prior to mating.

    The dose tolerance recommendations were based on an average weight of 50 kilograms for an adolescent girl but failed to take into account that HPV4 is administered to girls ages 9 to 13 years, who range in weight from 28 to 46 kilograms.

    Danish retrospective cohort study finds no link

    A 2021 study also evaluated premature ovarian insufficiency in a nationwide cohort of nearly 1 million Danish females ages 11 to 34 years.

    The researchers used Cox proportional hazard regression to detect an increased risk of premature ovarian insufficiency diagnosis by HPV4 vaccination status during the years 2007-2016. The hazard ratio for premature ovarian insufficiency (vaccinated versus unvaccinated) was 0.96.

    One limitation was that data on age at menarche (first menstruation) and oral contraceptive use were not available. Girls who had not yet reached menarche would not be at risk for premature ovarian insufficiency, of course.

    The authors excluded girls under age 15 in a sensitivity analysis and still found no signal, concluding that no association was found between HPV4 vaccination and premature ovarian insufficiency.

    The Truth About HPV Vaccination, Part 1: How Safe Is It, Really? This first installment in a multi-part series about the human papillomavirus, or HPV, vaccine explores peer-reviewed scientific literature that reveals serious safety concerns about a vaccine widely regarded as safe. The Epoch Times Miss a day, miss a lot. Subscribe to The Defender's Top News of the Day. It's free. By Yuhong Dong The decline of public trust in COVID-19 vaccines significantly impacts vaccination rates against routine childhood diseases. This multiple-part series explores the international research done over the past two decades on the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine — believed to be one of the most effective vaccines developed to date. Summary of Key Facts This multiple-part series offers a thorough analysis of concerns raised about HPV vaccination following the global HPV campaign, which commenced in 2006. In the U.S., the HPV vaccine was reported to have a disproportionately higher percentage of adverse events of fainting and blood clots in the veins. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) acknowledges that fainting can happen following the HPV vaccine, and recommends sitting or lying down to get the shot, then waiting for 15 minutes afterward. International scientists found that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) logged a substantial increase in reports of premature ovarian failure from 1.4 per year before 2006 to 22.2 per year after the HPV vaccine approval, yielding a Proportional Reporting Ratio of 46.1. The HPV vaccine is widely regarded as one of the most effective vaccines developed to date. Nevertheless, safety issues have been raised following its approval, and in response, additional research has been published and litigation has been brought on behalf of those with a vaccine injury. In this HPV vaccine series, Parts I and II explain how the vaccine works and the evidence suggesting there may be legitimate safety concerns. The remaining parts present questions about real-world vaccine effectiveness and identify specific ingredients which may pose harm. The information presented here is drawn from peer-reviewed scientific literature from the U.S., Australia, Denmark, Sweden, France and Japan, as well as statistics published by public health agencies in each of these countries. More than 100 hours of research and internal peer review among scientists with experience in infectious diseases, virology, clinical trials and vaccine epidemiology have been invested in presenting this summary of the evidence. Large registry-based studies have identified plausible associations between HPV vaccination and autoimmune conditions, including premature ovarian insufficiency or premature ovarian failure, Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and chronic regional pain syndrome. While it is easy to be enthusiastic about recent advances in human vaccine technology, we should keep in mind that achieving real and lasting good health is much more than just the absence of a certain virus. RFK Jr. and Brian Hooker Vax-Unvax RFK Jr. and Brian Hooker’s New Book: “Vax-Unvax” Order Now What is HPV? According to the CDC, HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the U.S. HPV is a small DNA virus infecting human cutaneous epithelial cells in the mucosa and skin. More than 150 strains of the HPV virus have been identified. HPV infection is so common that the majority of sexually active people will get it at some point in their lives, even if they have only one or very few sexual partners. It can spread through sexual intercourse and oral sex. It can also pass between people through skin-to-skin contact, even by people who have no symptoms. HPV infection causes genital warts, some of which can turn into cancer. For the most part, however, HPV infection is benign. More than 90% of HPV infections cause no clinical symptoms and are self-limited, meaning the virus is cleared by the body via natural immunological defenses. HPV-associated cancers High-risk HPV types (types 16, 18 and others) can cause cervical cell abnormalities that are precursors to cancers. Type 16 is associated with approximately 50% of cervical cancers worldwide, and types 16 and 18 together are linked to 66% of cervical cancers. An additional five high-risk types, 31, 33, 45, 52 and 58, are linked with another 15% of cervical cancers and 11% of all HPV-associated cancers. Infection with a high-risk HPV type is associated with a higher chance of the development of cervical cancer but, by itself, HPV infection is not the sole risk factor to cause cancer. There are many other reasons, as discussed in this paper. Given the prevalence of infection, it is unsurprising that globally, cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women. In 2018, an estimated 570,000 women were diagnosed with cervical cancer worldwide and more than 300,000 died of the disease. In the U.S., nearly 50,000 new HPV-associated cancers occur annually, with women infected at a slightly higher rate than men. But in 9 out of 10 cases, HPV goes away within two years without causing health problems. Only persistent HPV infections may lead to cancer. These infections evade the immune system’s innate cell-mediated defenses. The incidence of cervical cancer can be controlled as a result of the implementation of routine testing and screening, including Pap and DNA tests. HPV vaccines Three HPV vaccines — bivalent HPV vaccine (Cervarix, 2vHPV), quadrivalent HPV vaccine (Gardasil, 4vHPV or HPV4) and 9-valent HPV vaccine (Gardasil 9, 9vHPV) — have been licensed by the FDA. The HPV vaccine uses recombinant technology to assemble the shell of the virus — L1 capsid protein. These viral-like particles do not contain the virus genome and are not infectious. Cervarix, developed by GlaxoSmithKline, is a bivalent vaccine against HPV types 16 and 18, that was pulled from the U.S. market in 2016 due to “very low market demand.” Merck’s original Gardasil vaccine was designed to prevent infections from four strains (types 6, 11, 16 and 18). On June 8, 2006, after the FDA’s fast-tracked review, Gardasil was approved for use in females ages 9 to 26 for the prevention of cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancers. According to the label accompanying the vaccine, the ingredients in Merck’s first Gardasil vaccine were proteins of HPV, amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, yeast protein, sodium chloride, L-histidine, polysorbate 80, sodium borate and water for injection. On Oct. 16, 2009, the FDA approved Gardasil (HPV4) for use in boys ages 9 through 26 for the prevention of genital warts caused by HPV types 6 and 11, but not for cancer. In 2010, it approved Gardasil for the prevention of anal cancer in males and females ages 9 to 26. Four years later, the FDA approved an updated vaccine, Merck’s Gardasil 9, for use in girls ages 9 to 26 and boys ages 9 to 15 for the prevention of cervical, vaginal and anal cancers. Gardasil 9 contains the same ingredients as Gardasil, but offers protection against nine HPV strains, adding five additional types (HPV types 31, 33, 45, 52 and 58). The current HPV vaccination schedule recommended by the CDC is two doses for both boys and girls aged 11 or 12. However, it is approved for children as young as 9. The second dose is given 6 to 12 months after the first. For those aged 15 and above, a three-dose schedule is implemented at one- to two-month and six-month intervals, although antibody-level studies suggest that two doses are sufficient. The vaccine prompts the body to produce neutralizing antibodies against HPV. Antibody responses appear to peak seven months after the first dose (or one month after the third dose). The vaccine-induced antibody levels appear to be 10 to 100 times higher than those after natural infection. The high vaccine effectiveness (90 to 98%) against the fast-growing, abnormal cells which may cause precancerous lesions in people ages 16 to 26 suggested that the best timing for vaccination was to give it to patients before they became sexually active. HPV VAERS reports from 2 large countries U.S. HPV vaccine adverse events On Aug. 19, 2009, the Journal of the American Medical Association published an article authored by scientists from the FDA and CDC that reviewed the safety data for Gardasil for adverse events reported to VAERS between June 2006 through December 2008. During that time, there were 12,424 reports of adverse events. Of these, 772 (6.2%) were serious. VAERS is a passive surveillance system, which is subject to multiple limitations, including underreporting, unconfirmed diagnosis, lack of denominator data and no unbiased comparison groups. Nevertheless, it is a useful and important tool for detecting postmarket safety issues with vaccines. A disproportionately high percentage of Gardasil VAERS reports were of syncope (fainting) and venous thromboembolic events (blood clots in the veins) compared with other vaccines. There were 8.2 syncope events per 100,000 HPV doses and 0.2 venous thromboembolic events per 100,000 HPV doses reported, respectively. The Gardasil package insert includes a warning about fainting, fever, dizziness, nausea and headaches (page 1) and notes at least the following adverse reactions reported during postmarketing surveillance (section 6.2): Guillain-Barré syndrome, transverse myelitis, motor neuron disease, venous thromboembolic events, pancreatitis and autoimmune disorders. Australia HPV vaccines adverse events In 2007, Australia reported an annual adverse drug reaction rate of 7.3/100,000, the highest since 2003, representing an 85% increase from 2006.

  • Elon Musk says Neuralink implanted wireless brain chip
    10 hours ago

    BBC News

    Tech billionaire Elon Musk has claimed his Neuralink company has successfully implanted one of its wireless brain chips in a human.

    In a post on X, formerly Twitter, he said "promising" brain activity had been detected after the procedure and the patient was "recovering well".

    The company's goal is to connect human brains to computers to help tackle complex neurological conditions.

    A number of rival firms have already implanted similar devices.

    "For any company producing medical devices, the first test in humans is a significant milestone," said Professor Anne Vanhoestenberghe of King's College London.

    "For the brain computer interface community, we must place this news in the context that whilst there are many companies working on exciting products, there are only a few other companies who have implanted their devices in humans, so Neuralink has joined a rather small group."

    However, she also suggested there needed to be a note of caution as "true success" could only be evaluated in the long-term.

    "We know Elon Musk is very adept at generating publicity for his company," she added.

    Among the other companies to make similar advances in the field is the École Polytechnique Fédérale in Lausanne (EPFL), in Switzerland, which has successfully enabled a paralysed man to walk just by thinking.

    That was achieved by putting electronic implants on his brain and spine which wirelessly communicate thoughts to his legs and feet.

    Details of the breakthrough were published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature in May 2023.

    There has been no independent verification of Mr Musk's claims, nor has Neuralink provided any information about the procedure he says has taken place.

    BBC News has approached both Neuralink and the US's medical regulator, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for comment.

    Neuralink testing


    Neuralink has been criticised in the past, with Reuters reporting in December 2022 that the company engaged in testing which resulted in the deaths of approximately 1,500 animals, including sheep, monkeys and pigs.

    In July 2023, the head of the US Department of Agriculture - which investigates animal welfare concerns - said it had not found any violations of animal research rules at the firm.

    However, a separate investigation by the agency is ongoing.

    Mr Musk's company was given permission to test the chip on humans by the FDA in May 2023.

    That gave the green light for the start of the six-year study during which a robot is being used to surgically place 64 flexible threads, thinner than a human hair, on to a part of the brain that controls "movement intention", according to Neuralink.

    The company says that these threads allow its experimental implant - powered by a battery that can be charged wirelessly - to record and transmit brain signals wirelessly to an app that decodes how the person intends to move.

    "[It] has great potential to help people with neurological disorders in future and is an excellent example of how fundamental neuroscience research is being harnessed for medical advances," said Professor Tara Spires-Jones, president of the British Neuroscience Association.

    "However, most of these interfaces require invasive neurosurgery and are still in experimental stages thus it will likely be many years before they are commonly available."

    Telepathy


    In another post on X, Mr Musk said Neuralink's first product would be called Telepathy.

    Telepathy, he said, would enable "control of your phone or computer, and through them almost any device, just by thinking".

    "Initial users will be those who have lost the use of their limbs," he continued.

    Referring to the late British scientist who had motor neurone disease, he added: "Imagine if Stephen Hawking could communicate faster than a speed typist or auctioneer. That is the goal."

    While Mr Musk's involvement raises the profile of Neuralink, some of his rivals have a track record dating back two decades. Utah-based Blackrock Neurotech implanted its first of many brain-computer interfaces in 2004.

    Precision Neuroscience, formed by a Neuralink co-founder, also aims to help people with paralysis. And its implant resembles a very thin piece of tape that sits on the surface of the brain and can be implanted via a "cranial micro-slit", which it says is a much simpler procedure.

    Existing devices have also generated results. In two separate recent US scientific studies, implants were used to monitor brain activity when a person tried to speak, which could then be decoded to help them communicate.

"For the brain computer interface community, we must place this news in the context that whilst there are many companies working on exciting products, there are only a few other companies who have implanted their devices in humans, so Neuralink has joined a rather small group." However, she also suggested there needed to be a note of caution as "true success" could only be evaluated in the long-term. "We know Elon Musk is very adept at generating publicity for his company," she added. Among the other companies to make similar advances in the field is the École Polytechnique Fédérale in Lausanne (EPFL), in Switzerland, which has successfully enabled a paralysed man to walk just by thinking. That was achieved by putting electronic implants on his brain and spine which wirelessly communicate thoughts to his legs and feet. Details of the breakthrough were published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature in May 2023. There has been no independent verification of Mr Musk's claims, nor has Neuralink provided any information about the procedure he says has taken place. BBC News has approached both Neuralink and the US's medical regulator, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for comment. Neuralink testing Neuralink has been criticised in the past, with Reuters reporting in December 2022 that the company engaged in testing which resulted in the deaths of approximately 1,500 animals, including sheep, monkeys and pigs. In July 2023, the head of the US Department of Agriculture - which investigates animal welfare concerns - said it had not found any violations of animal research rules at the firm. However, a separate investigation by the agency is ongoing. Mr Musk's company was given permission to test the chip on humans by the FDA in May 2023. That gave the green light for the start of the six-year study during which a robot is being used to surgically place 64 flexible threads, thinner than a human hair, on to a part of the brain that controls "movement intention", according to Neuralink. The company says that these threads allow its experimental implant - powered by a battery that can be charged wirelessly - to record and transmit brain signals wirelessly to an app that decodes how the person intends to move. "[It] has great potential to help people with neurological disorders in future and is an excellent example of how fundamental neuroscience research is being harnessed for medical advances," said Professor Tara Spires-Jones, president of the British Neuroscience Association. "However, most of these interfaces require invasive neurosurgery and are still in experimental stages thus it will likely be many years before they are commonly available." Telepathy In another post on X, Mr Musk said Neuralink's first product would be called Telepathy. Telepathy, he said, would enable "control of your phone or computer, and through them almost any device, just by thinking". "Initial users will be those who have lost the use of their limbs," he continued. Referring to the late British scientist who had motor neurone disease, he added: "Imagine if Stephen Hawking could communicate faster than a speed typist or auctioneer. That is the goal." While Mr Musk's involvement raises the profile of Neuralink, some of his rivals have a track record dating back two decades. Utah-based Blackrock Neurotech implanted its first of many brain-computer interfaces in 2004. Precision Neuroscience, formed by a Neuralink co-founder, also aims to help people with paralysis. And its implant resembles a very thin piece of tape that sits on the surface of the brain and can be implanted via a "cranial micro-slit", which it says is a much simpler procedure. Existing devices have also generated results. In two separate recent US scientific studies, implants were used to monitor brain activity when a person tried to speak, which could then be decoded to help them communicate.

    IBU BAPA RASULULLAH SAW :
    AYAH : Abdullah bin Abdul Muttalib
    IBU : Āminah bt Wahab


    SEJARAH RINGKAS :

    DILAHIRKAN DI MAKKAH DAN DIJAGA :
    Semenanjung Arab,
    Baginda adalah anak yatim piatu sejak kecil lagi dimana baginda dijaga oleh
    1. datuknya, Abdul Muttalib bin Hasyim dan 2. seterusnya bapa saudara baginda,
    Abu Talib bin Abdul Muttalib.

    Baginda juga pernah bekerja sebagai pengembala kambing dan saudagar serta perkahwinan pertamanya adalah ketika berusia 25 tahun dimana baginda telah bernikah dengan Khadijah binti Khuwailid (40 tahun).

    Keluarga baginda mengamalkan ajaran Tauhid yang dibawa oleh Nabi Isa AS daripada Allah SWT.


    WAHYU PERTAMA :
    Ketika Nabi Muhammad berumur 40 tahun, baginda telah menerima wahyu yang pertama daripada Tuhan melalui malaikat Jibril (malaikat yang sama menyampaikan wahyu Allah SWT kepada 5 orang Rasul Ulul Azmi) ketika sedang berada di Gua Hira.


    BERDAKWAH :
    Tiga tahun setelah kejadian itu,
    baginda mula berdakwah secara terbuka kepada penduduk Makkah dengan mengatakan
    "Tuhan itu Esa"
    dan hendaklah menyerahkan diri sepenuhnya kepada Allah SWT
    (secara harfiahnya membawa maksud Islam) dan ia adalah satu cara hidup (الدين ad-Din) yang diterima Allah SWT sahaja.

    Nabi Muhammad SAW menerima beberapa orang pengikut pada awalnya yang terdiri daripada pelbagai golongan.

    Ajaran yang dibawa oleh baginda mendapat tentangan yang hebat dalam kalangan penduduk Makkah malahan mereka dilayan dengan teruk dan zalim.
    Oleh itu, Nabi Muhammad SAW telah menghantar beberapa orang pengikutnya ke Habsyah pada 614 M


    HIJRAH :
    sebelum baginda dan pengikutnya lain di Makkah Hijrah ke Madinah
    (dahulu dikenali sebagai Yathrib) pada tahun 622 M.

    Peristiwa penghijrahan Baginda itu menandakan permulaan bagi kalendar Islam atau takwim Hijrah.

    Di Madinah, Baginda telah menyatukan semua suku kaum dibawah Piagam Madinah.


    KEMBALI KE MEKKAH SEMULA :
    Setelah bersengketa dengan penduduk Makkah selama 8 tahun,
    Baginda membawa 10,000 pengikutnya ke Makkah serta membukanya.
    Nabi Muhammad SAW dan para pengikutnya telah memusnahkan patung berhala yang terdapat di Makkah.

    KEWAFATAN RASULULLAH SAW :
    Pada tahun 632 M, beberapa bulan selepas Haji Wida atau Haji Perpisahan,
    Nabi Muhammad SAW telah jatuh sakit
    lalu wafat.

    Ketika kematian Baginda,
    hampir seluruh Semenanjung Arab berada di bawah naungan Islam dan bersatu dengan utuhnya
    (6 Mei 570M atau pun 20 April/26 April 571M).


    KETURUNAN IBU DAN AYAH
    RASULULLAH SAW :
    Ibu Baginda,
    iaitu Aminah binti Wahab,
    adalah anak perempuan kepada
    Wahab bin Abdul Manaf dari keluarga Zahrah.

    Ayah Baginda,
    iaitu Abdullah,
    ialah anak kepada Abdul Muthalib. Keturunannya dikatakan bersusur galur dari Nabi Ismail, anak kepada Nabi Ibrahim kira-kira dalam keturunan keempat puluh.

    Ayah Baginda telah meninggal sebelum kelahiran Baginda.
    Sementara ibu Baginda meninggal ketika Baginda berusia kira-kira enam tahun, menjadikannya seorang anak yatim piatu.


    IBU SUSUAN RASULULLAH SAW :
    Menurut tradisi keluarga atasan Mekkah, Baginda telah dipelihara oleh seorang ibu angkat

    IBU SUSU :
    wanita yang menyusukan baginda yang bernama Halimahtus Sa'adiah di kampung halamannya di pergunungan selama beberapa tahun.

    RASULULLAH SAW DI JAGA :
    Dalam tahun-tahun itu, baginda telah dibawa ke Makkah untuk mengunjungi ibu Baginda Aminah binti Wahab.

    Setelah ibu Baginda wafat,
    Baginda dijaga oleh
    datuknya, Abdul Muthalib.

    Apabila datuknya meninggal,
    Baginda dijaga oleh bapa saudara Baginda, Abu Talib.

    Ketika inilah Baginda sering kali membantu mengembala kambing-kambing bapa saudara Baginda di sekitar Mekkah dan kerap menemani bapa saudara Baginda dalam urusan perdagangan ke Syam (Syria).


    MASA REMAJA RASULULLAH SAW :
    Dalam masa remaja Baginda,
    Nabi Muhammad SAW percaya sepenuhnya dengan keesaan Allah SWT.

    Baginda hidup dengan cara amat sederhana dan membenci sifat-sifat angkuh dan bongkak.
    Baginda mengamalkan ajaran-ajaran Nabi-Nabi terdahulu terutamanya
    Nabi Isa Al-Masih.

    YANG RASULULLAH SAW SAYANG :
    Baginda menyayangi
    1. orang-orang miskin,
    2. para janda dan
    3. anak-anak yatim serta berkongsi penderitaan mereka dengan berusaha menolong mereka.

    Baginda juga menghindari semua kejahatan yang menjadi amalan biasa di kalangan para belia pada masa itu seperti berjudi, meminum minuman keras, berkelakuan kasar dan lain-lain,
    sehingga Baginda dikenali sebagai
    As Saadiq (yang benar) dan
    Al Amin (yang amanah).

    Baginda sentiasa dipercayai sebagai orang tengah kepada dua pihak yang bertelingkah di kampung halamannya di Mekkah.


    BAGINDA BERUMAHTANGGA :
    Ketika berusia kira-kira 25 tahun,
    ayah saudara Baginda menyarankan Baginda untuk bekerja dengan kafilah
    (rombongan perniagaan) yang dimiliki oleh seorang janda yang bernama Khadijah. Baginda diterima bekerja dan bertanggungjawab terhadap pelayaran ke Syam (Syria).
    Baginda mengelolakan urusniaga itu dengan penuh bijaksana dan pulang dengan keuntungan luar biasa.

    ISTERI DAN ANAK RASULULLAH SAW PERTAMA:
    Khadijah begitu tertarik dengan kejujuran dan watak peribadinya yang mendorong beliau untuk menawarkan diri untuk mengahwini Baginda.
    Baginda menerima lamarannya dan perkahwinan mereka adalah bahagia.

    Mereka dikurniakan 6 orang anak
    (2 lelaki dan 4 perempuan) tetapi kedua-dua anak lelaki mereka,
    Qasim dan Abdullah meninggal semasa kecil.
    Manakala anak perempuan baginda ialah Ruqayyah, Zainab, Ummu Kalsum dan Fatimah az-Zahra.

    Khadijah merupakan satu-satunya isterinya sehinggalah Khadijah meninggal pada
    usia 64 tahun.


    ANAK RASULULLAH SAW DENGAN
    MARIA AL-QIBTIYYAH :
    Seorang lagi anak Baginda adalah hasil perkahwinan Baginda dengan
    Maria al-Qibtiyyah.
    Putera Baginda bersama Maria bernama Ibrahim itu juga meninggal semasa kecil. Isteri-isteri baginda dikenali sebagai "Ummul Mukminin" yang bermaksud
    "ibu orang-orang beriman".

    BAPA DAN IBU SAUDARA
    NABI MUHAMMAD SAW :
    Al-Harith bin Abdul Muttalib
    Muqaddam bin Abdul Muttalib
    Zubair bin Abdul Muttalib
    Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib
    Al-Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib
    Abu Thalib bin Abdul Muttalib
    Abu Lahab bin Abdul Muttalib
    Abdul Kaabah bin Abdul Muttalib
    Hijin bin Abdul Muttalib
    Dhirar bin Abdul Muttalib
    Ghaidaq bin Abdul Muttalib
    Safiyah binti Abdul Muttalib
    'Atikah binti Abdul Muttalib
    Arwa binti Abdul Muttalib
    Umaimah binti Abdul Muttalib
    Barrah binti Abdul Muttalib
    Ummi Hakim al-Bidha binti Abdul Muttalib
    Hashim bin Abdu'Manan


    KERASULAN :
    Nabi Muhammad SAW telah dilahirkan di tengah-tengah masyarakat jahiliyah.
    Ia sungguh menyedihkan hati Baginda sehingga Baginda kerapkali ke Gua Hira, sebuah gua bukit dekat Makkah,
    yang kemudian dikenali sebagai
    Jabal al-Nour,
    untuk memikirkan cara untuk mengatasi gejala yang dihadapi masyarakatnya.

    Di sinilah Baginda sering bertapa serta berfikir dengan mendalam, memohon kepada Allah SWT supaya memusnahkan kedurjanaan yang kian berleluasa.


    WAHYU PERTAMA :
    Pada suatu malam hari Isnin 21 Ramadan (bersamaan 10 Ogos 610),
    ketika Baginda sedang bertafakur
    di Gua Hira,

    Malaikat Jibril mendatangi Baginda.
    Jibril membangkitkan Baginda dan menyampaikan wahyu Allah SWT
    di telinganya.
    Baginda diminta membaca.

    Baginda menjawab,
    "Saya tidak tahu membaca".

    Jibril mengulangi tiga kali meminta
    Nabi Muhammad SAW untuk membaca tetapi jawapan Baginda tetap sama.

    Baginda menjawab,
    "Saya tidak tahu membaca".

    Akhirnya, Jibril berkata :
    "Bacalah dengan menyebut nama Tuhanmu yang menciptakan manusia dari segumpal darah.
    Bacalah, dengan nama Tuhanmu yang Amat Pemurah
    yang mengajar manusia dengan perantaraan
    (menulis, membaca).
    Dia mengajarkan kepada manusia
    apa yang tidak diketahuinya."

    Ini merupakan wahyu pertama yang diterima oleh Nabi Muhammad SAW.
    Ketika itu baginda berusia 40 tahun setengah.


    WAHYU TURUN SELAMA 23 TAHUN :
    Wahyu itu turun kepada Baginda dari semasa ke semasa dalam jangka masa
    23 tahun.

    Siri wahyu ini telah diturunkan menurut panduan yang diberikan kepada
    Nabi Muhammad SAW dan dikumpulkan dalam buku bernama Al Mushaf yang juga dinamakan Al-Quran (bacaan).


    AL-QURAN DAN AL SUNNAH :
    Kebanyakkan ayat-ayatnya mempunyai
    erti yang jelas.
    Sebahagiannya diterjemah dan dihubungkan dengan ayat-ayat yang lain. Sebahagiannya pula diterjemah oleh
    Nabi Muhammad SAW sendiri melalui percakapan Baginda,
    tindakan dan persetujuan yang terkenal, dengan nama Sunnah.

    Al-Quran dan al Sunnah digabungkan bersama untuk menjadi panduan dan cara hidup mereka yang menyerahkan diri kepada Allah SWT.


    BERDAKWAH :
    Marhalah dakwah baginda boleh dibahagikan mengikut fasa:

    Fasa di Makkah: hampir 13 tahun
    Dakwah rahsia: 3 tahun
    Dakwah terbuka di Makkah: hampir 7 tahun
    Dakwah kepada semua: 3 tahun
    Fasa Madinah: 10 tahun

    Perjuangan dakwah Nabi Muhammad SAW juga boleh diringkaskan sebagai berikut :

    Pertama:
    Marhalah Tasqif -
    tahap pembinaan dan pengkaderan untuk melahirkan individu-individu yang menyakini pemikiran (fikrah) dan metod (thariqah) parti politik guna membentuk kerangka gerakan.

    Kedua:
    Marhalah Tafa’ul ma’al Ummah -
    tahap berinteraksi dengan umat agar umat turut sama memikul kewajiban dakwah Islam, sehingga umat akan menjadikan Islam sebagai panduan utama dalam hidupnya serta berusaha untuk menerapkannya dalam kehidupan bernegara dan bermasyarakat.

    Ketiga:
    Marhalah Istilamil Hukmi -
    tahap pengambilalihan kekuasaan, dan penerapan Islam secara utuh serta menyeluruh, lalu mengembangkannya sebagai risalah Islam ke seluruh penjuru dunia.

    didalam kitab sirah dan merupakan satu aktiviti penting dalam marhalah kedua perjuangan Nabi Muhammad SAW
    Lestari atau tidaknya dakwah ditentukan oleh Baginda kerana keberlangsungan dakwah memerlukan dua aspek penting :

    Pertama :
    untuk mendapatkan perlindungan (himayah) sehingga tetap dapat melakukan aktiviti dakwah dalam keadaan aman dan terlindung.

    Kedua :
    untuk mencapai tampuk pemerintahan dalam rangka menegakkan Daulah Islamiyah (Negara Islam) dan menerapkan hukum-hukum berdasarkan apa yang telah diturunkan Allah SWT dalam kehidupan bernegara dan bermasyarakat.

    CABARAN BERDAKWAH :
    Apabila Nabi Muhammad SAW menyeru manusia ke jalan Allah SWT,
    tidak ramai yang mendengar seruannya.

    Kebanyakkan pengikut Baginda adalah dari anggota keluarga Baginda dan dari golongan masyarakat bawahan,
    Antara mereka ialah Khadijah, Ali, Zaid dan Bilal.

    Apabila Baginda memperhebatkan kegiatan dakwah Baginda dengan mengumumkan secara terbuka
    Agama Islam yang disebarkan Baginda, dengan itu ramai yang mengikut Baginda.

    Tetapi pada masa, Baginda menghadapi berbagai cabaran dari kalangan bangsawan dan para pemimpin yang merasakan kedudukan mereka terancam.
    Mereka bangkit bersama untuk mempertahankan agama datuk nenek mereka.

    Semangat penganut Islam meningkat apabila sekumpulan kecil masyarakat yang dihormati di Makkah menganut Agama Islam.

    Antara mereka ialah Abu Bakar, Uthman bin Affan, Zubair bin Al Awwam, Abdul Rahman bin Auf, Ubaidillah bin Harith, Amr bin Nufail dan ramai lagi.

    Akibat cabaran dari masyarakat jahiliyah di Mekkah, sebahagian orang Islam disiksa, dianiaya, disingkir dan dipulaukan.

    Baginda terpaksa bersabar dan mencari perlindungan untuk pengikutnya.
    Baginda meminta Negus Raja Habsyah, untuk membenarkan orang-orang Islam berhijrah ke negaranya.
    Negus mengalu-alukan ketibaan mereka dan tidak membenarkan mereka diserah kepada penguasa di Makkah.

    HIJRAH :
    Di Makkah terdapat Kaabah yang telah dibina oleh Nabi Ibrahim a.s.
    beberapa abad lalu sebagai pusat penyatuan umat untuk beribadat kepada Allah SWT.
    Sebelumnya ia dijadikan oleh masyarakat jahiliyah sebagai tempat sembahyang selain dari Allah SWT.

    Mereka datang dari berbagai daerah Arab, mewakili berbagai suku ternama.
    Ziarah ke Kaabah dijadikan mereka sebagai sebuah pesta tahunan.
    Orang ramai bertemu dan berhibur dengan kegiatan-kegiatan tradisi mereka dalam kunjungan ini.

    Baginda mengambil peluang ini untuk menyebarkan Islam.
    Antara mereka yang tertarik dengan seruan Baginda ialah sekumpulan orang dari Yathrib (Madinah).

    Mereka menemui Baginda dan beberapa orang Islam dari Mekah di desa bernama Aqabah secara sembunyi-sembunyi.

    Setelah menganut Islam, mereka bersumpah untuk melindungi Islam,
    Nabi Muhammad SAW dan orang-orang Islam Mekkah.

    Tahun berikutnya, sekumpulan masyarakat Islam dari Yathrib datang lagi ke Makkah. Mereka menemui Nabi Muhammad di tempat yang mereka bertemu sebelumnya. Kali ini, Abbas bin Abdul Muthalib,
    pakcik Baginda yang belum menganut Islam hadir dalam pertemuan itu.
    Mereka mengundang Baginda dan orang-orang Islam Mekkah untuk berhijrah ke Yathrib.

    Mereka berjanji akan melayani mereka sebagai saudara seAgama.
    Dialog yang memakan masa agak lama diadakan antara mayarakat Islam Yathrib dengan pakcik Nabi Muhammad SAW untuk memastikan mereka sesungguhnya berhasrat mengalu-alukan masyarakat Islam Mekkah di bandar mereka.
    Nabi Muhammad SAW akhirnya bersetuju untuk berhijrah beramai-ramai ke bandar baru itu.


    HIJRAH KE MADINAH (YATHRIB) :
    Mengetahui ramai masyarakat Islam merancang meninggalkan Makkah, masyarakat jahiliyah Mekkah cuba menghalang mereka.
    Namun kumpulan pertama telahpun berjaya berhijrah ke Yathrib.
    Masyarakat jahiliyah Mekkah bimbang hijrah ke Yathrib akan memberi peluang kepada orang Islam untuk mengembangkan Agama mereka ke daerah-daerah yang lain.

    Hampir dua bulan seluruh masyarakat Islam dari Makkah kecuali
    Nabi Muhammad SAW, Abu Bakar, Ali dan beberapa orang yang daif, telah berhijrah.


    RANCANGAN MEMBUNUH
    RASULULLAH SAW :
    Masyarakat Mekkah kemudian memutuskan untuk membunuh Baginda. Mereka merancang namun tidak berjaya. Dengan berbagai taktik dan rancangan yang teratur,
    Nabi Muhammad SAW akhirnya sampai dengan selamat ke Yathrib, yang kemudian dikenali sebagai, 'Bandar Rasulullah SAW'.


    MADINAH :
    Di Madinah, kerajaan Islam diwujudkan di bawah pimpinan Baginda umat Islam bebas mengerjakan solat di Madinah.

    Musyrikin Makkah mengetahui akan perkara ini kemudiannya melancarkan beberapa serangan ke atas Madinah tetapi kesemuanya ditangkis dengan mudah oleh umat Islam.

    Satu perjanjian kemudiannya dibuat dengan memihak kepada pihak Quraish Makkah.
    Walau bagaimanapun perjanjian itu dicabuli oleh mereka dengan menyerang sekutu umat Islam.
    Orang Muslim pada ketika ini menjadi semakin kuat telah membuat keputusan untuk menyerang musyrikin Makkah memandangkan perjanjian telah dicabuli.


    PEMBUKAAN KOTA MAKKAH :
    Pada tahun kelapan selepas penghijrahan ke Madinah berlaku,
    Nabi Muhammad SAW berlepas ke Makkah.

    Tentera Islam yang seramai 10,000 orang tiba di Makkah dengan penuh bersemangat.
    Takut akan nyawa mereka terkorban, penduduk Makkah bersetuju untuk menyerahkan kota Makkah tanpa sebarang syarat.
    Nabi Muhammad SAW kemudian mengarahkan supaya kesemua berhala dan patung-patung di sekeliling Kaabah dimusnahkan.


    MENELADANI PERBUATAN
    NABI MUHAMMAD SAW :
    Perbuatan-perbuatan yang dilakukan
    Nabi Muhammad SAW dibagi menjadi dua cara.
    Ada yang termasuk perbuatan-perbuatan jibiliyah, iaitu perbuatan yang dilakukan manusia secara Fitriah, dan ada pula perbuatan-perbuatan selain jibiliyah.

    Perbuatan-perbuatan jibiliyah,
    seperti berdiri, duduk, makan, minum dan lain sebagainya, tidak ada perselisihan bahawa status perbuatan tersebut adalah mubah (harus), baik bagi
    Nabi Muhammad SAW maupun bagi umatnya.
    Oleh kerana itu, perbuatan tersebut tidak termasuk dalam kategori mandub (sunat).

    Sedangkan perbuatan-perbuatan yang bukan jibiliyah, boleh jadi termasuk dalam hal-hal yang ditetapkan khusus bagi
    Nabi Muhammad SAW, dimana tidak seorang pun diperkenankan mengikutinya (haram);
    atau boleh jadi tidak termasuk dalam perbuatan yang diperuntukkan khusus bagi Baginda.


    KHUSUS BAGI RASULULLAH SAW :
    Apabila perbuatan itu telah ditetapkan khusus bagi Nabi Muhammad SAW,
    seperti dibolehkan Baginda melanjutkan puasa pada malam hari tanpa berbuka, atau dibolehkannya menikah dengan lebih dari empat wanita, dan lain sebagainya dari kekhususan Baginda;
    maka dalam hal ini kita tidak diperkenankan mengikuti Baginda.

    Sebab,
    perbuatan-perbuatan tersebut telah terbukti diperuntukkan khusus bagi Baginda berdasarkan Ijmak Sahabat.
    Oleh kerana itu tidak dibolehkan meneladani Baginda dalam perbuatan-perbuatan semacam ini.

    Akan halnya dengan perbuatan Baginda yang kita kenal sebagai penjelas bagi kita, tidak ada perselisihan bahawa hal itu merupakan dalil.
    Dalam hal ini penjelasan tersebut boleh berupa perkataan, seperti

    RASULULLAH SAW BERSABDA :
    “ Solatlah kalian sebagaimana kalian melihat aku solat ”.

    RASULULLAH SAW BERSABDA
    " Laksanakan manasik hajimu berdasarkan manasikku (apa yang telah aku kerjakan) ".

    Hadis ini menunjukkan bahawa perbuatan Baginda merupakan penjelas,
    agar kita mengikutinya.

    Penjelasan Baginda boleh juga berupa qaraain al ahwal, yakni qarinah/perbuatan yang menerangkan bentuk perbuatan, seperti memotong pergelangan pencuri sebagai penjelas,

    ALLAH SWT BERFIRMAN :
    " Maka potonglah tangan keduanya ."
    (SURAH AL-MAIDAH : 38)

    Status penjelas yang terdapat dalam perbuatan Baginda, baik berupa ucapan maupun perbuatan yang menerangkan bentuk perbuatan, dapat mengikuti hukum apa yang telah dijelaskan, apakah itu
    wajib,
    haram,
    mandub(sunat) atau
    mubah(harus) sesuai dengan arah penunjukan dalil.

    Sedangkan perbuatan-perbuatan Baginda yang tidak terdapat di dalamnya perbuatan yang menunjukkan bahawa hal itu merupakan penjelas,
    bukan penolakan dan bukan pula ketetapan.
    Maka dalam hal ini perlu diperhatikan apakah di dalamnya terdapat maksud untuk bertaqarrub
    (mendekatkan diri kepada Allah SWT)
    atau tidak.
    Apabila di dalamnya terdapat keinginan untuk bertaqarrub kepada Allah SWT
    maka perbuatan itu termasuk mandub (sunat),
    di mana seseorang akan mendapatkan pahala atas perbuatannya itu dan tidak mendapatkan balasan jika meninggalkannya.

    Misalnya Solat Duha.
    Sedangkan jika tidak terdapat di
    dalamnya keinginan untuk bertaqarrub, maka perbuatan tersebut termasuk
    mubah (harus).

    PESANAN TERAKHIR MUHAMMAD
    (ISI KHUTBAH TERAKHIR MUHAMMAD) :
    Ketika Nabi Muhammad SAW
    mengerjakan ibadah haji yang terakhir,
    maka pada 9 Zulhijjah tahun 10 hijarah
    di Lembah Uranah, Bukit Arafah,
    Baginda menyampaikan khutbah terakhirnya di hadapan kaum Muslimin,
    di antara isi dari khutbah terakhir
    Nabi Muhammad SAW itu ialah:

    " Wahai manusia,
    dengarlah baik-baik apa yang hendak ku katakan, Aku tidak mengetahui apakah aku dapat bertemu lagi dengan kamu semua selepas tahun ini.

    Oleh itu, dengarlah dengan teliti kata-kataku ini dan sampaikanlah ia kepada orang-orang yang tidak dapat hadir disini pada hari ini.

    1. "Wahai manusia, sepertimana kamu menganggap bulan ini dan kota ini sebagai suci, anggaplah jiwa dan harta setiap orang Muslim sebagai amanah suci.

    2. Kembalikan harta yang diamanahkan kepada kamu kepada pemiliknya yang berhak.

    3. Janganlah kamu sakiti sesiapapun agar orang lain tidak menyakiti kamu lagi.

    4. Ingatlah bahawa sesungguhya kamu akan menemui Tuhan kamu dan DIA pasti membuat perhitungan di atas segala amalan kamu.

    5. Allah SWT telah mengharamkan riba, oleh itu, segala urusan yang melibatkan riba dibatalkan mulai sekarang.

    6. "Berwaspadalah terhadap syaitan demi keselamatan agama kamu.
    syaitan telah berputus asa untuk menyesatkan kamu dalam perkara-perkara besar,
    maka berjaga-jagalah supaya kamu tidak mengikutinya dalam perkara-perkara kecil.

    7. "Wahai manusia sebagaimana kamu mempunyai hak atas isteri kamu,
    mereka juga mempunyai hak ke atas kamu. Sekiranya mereka menyempurnakan hak mereka ke atas kamu,
    maka mereka juga berhak diberikan makan dan pakaian, dalam suasana kasih sayang.
    Layanilah wanita-wanita kamu dengan baik dan berlemah-lembutlah terhadap mereka kerana sesungguhnya mereka adalah teman dan pembantu kamu yang setia.
    Dan hak kamu atas mereka ialah mereka sama sekali tidak boleh memasukkan orang yang kamu tidak sukai ke dalam rumah kamu dan dilarang melakukan zina.

    8. "Wahai manusia,
    dengarlah bersungguh-sungguh kata-kataku ini,
    sembahlah Allah SWT,
    dirikanlah solat lima waktu,
    berpuasalah di bulan Ramadhan, dan tunaikanlah zakat dari harta kekayaan kamu.
    Kerjakanlah ibadah haji sekiranya kamu mampu.

    9. Ketahuilah bahawa setiap Muslim adalah saudara kepada Muslim yang lain.
    Kamu semua adalah sama;
    tidak seorang pun yang lebih mulia dari yang lainnya kecuali dalam Taqwa dan beramal soleh.

    10. "Ingatlah, bahawa kamu akan menghadap Allah SWT pada suatu hari untuk dipertanggungjawabkan diatas segala apa yang telah kamu kerjakan.
    Oleh itu, awasilah agar jangan sekali-kali kamu terkeluar dari landasan kebenaran selepas ketiadaanku.

    11. "Wahai manusia,
    tidak ada lagi Nabi atau Rasul yang akan datang selepasku dan tidak akan lahir Agama baru.

    Oleh itu wahai manusia.
    Nilailah dengan betul dan fahamilah kata-kataku yang telah aku sampaikan kepada kamu.

    Sesungguhnya aku tinggalkan kepada kamu dua perkara, yang sekiranya kamu berpegang teguh dan mengikuti kedua-duanya, nescaya kamu tidak akan tersesat selama-lamanya.
    Itulah Al-Qur'an dan Sunnahku.

    12. "Hendaklah orang-orang yang mendengar ucapanku, menyampaikan pula kepada orang lain.
    Semoga yang terakhir lebih memahami kata-kataku dari mereka yang terus mendengar dariku.

    Saksikanlah Ya Allah,
    bahawasanya telah aku sampaikan risalah-MU kepada hamba-hamba-MU."

Mariyah al-Qibthiyah (630-632). IBU BAPA RASULULLAH SAW : AYAH : Abdullah bin Abdul Muttalib IBU : Āminah bt Wahab SEJARAH RINGKAS : DILAHIRKAN DI MAKKAH DAN DIJAGA : Semenanjung Arab, Baginda adalah anak yatim piatu sejak kecil lagi dimana baginda dijaga oleh 1. datuknya, Abdul Muttalib bin Hasyim dan 2. seterusnya bapa saudara baginda, Abu Talib bin Abdul Muttalib. Baginda juga pernah bekerja sebagai pengembala kambing dan saudagar serta perkahwinan pertamanya adalah ketika berusia 25 tahun dimana baginda telah bernikah dengan Khadijah binti Khuwailid (40 tahun). Keluarga baginda mengamalkan ajaran Tauhid yang dibawa oleh Nabi Isa AS daripada Allah SWT. WAHYU PERTAMA : Ketika Nabi Muhammad berumur 40 tahun, baginda telah menerima wahyu yang pertama daripada Tuhan melalui malaikat Jibril (malaikat yang sama menyampaikan wahyu Allah SWT kepada 5 orang Rasul Ulul Azmi) ketika sedang berada di Gua Hira. BERDAKWAH : Tiga tahun setelah kejadian itu, baginda mula berdakwah secara terbuka kepada penduduk Makkah dengan mengatakan "Tuhan itu Esa" dan hendaklah menyerahkan diri sepenuhnya kepada Allah SWT (secara harfiahnya membawa maksud Islam) dan ia adalah satu cara hidup (الدين ad-Din) yang diterima Allah SWT sahaja. Nabi Muhammad SAW menerima beberapa orang pengikut pada awalnya yang terdiri daripada pelbagai golongan. Ajaran yang dibawa oleh baginda mendapat tentangan yang hebat dalam kalangan penduduk Makkah malahan mereka dilayan dengan teruk dan zalim. Oleh itu, Nabi Muhammad SAW telah menghantar beberapa orang pengikutnya ke Habsyah pada 614 M HIJRAH : sebelum baginda dan pengikutnya lain di Makkah Hijrah ke Madinah (dahulu dikenali sebagai Yathrib) pada tahun 622 M. Peristiwa penghijrahan Baginda itu menandakan permulaan bagi kalendar Islam atau takwim Hijrah. Di Madinah, Baginda telah menyatukan semua suku kaum dibawah Piagam Madinah. KEMBALI KE MEKKAH SEMULA : Setelah bersengketa dengan penduduk Makkah selama 8 tahun, Baginda membawa 10,000 pengikutnya ke Makkah serta membukanya. Nabi Muhammad SAW dan para pengikutnya telah memusnahkan patung berhala yang terdapat di Makkah. KEWAFATAN RASULULLAH SAW : Pada tahun 632 M, beberapa bulan selepas Haji Wida atau Haji Perpisahan, Nabi Muhammad SAW telah jatuh sakit lalu wafat. Ketika kematian Baginda, hampir seluruh Semenanjung Arab berada di bawah naungan Islam dan bersatu dengan utuhnya (6 Mei 570M atau pun 20 April/26 April 571M). KETURUNAN IBU DAN AYAH RASULULLAH SAW : Ibu Baginda, iaitu Aminah binti Wahab, adalah anak perempuan kepada Wahab bin Abdul Manaf dari keluarga Zahrah. Ayah Baginda, iaitu Abdullah, ialah anak kepada Abdul Muthalib. Keturunannya dikatakan bersusur galur dari Nabi Ismail, anak kepada Nabi Ibrahim kira-kira dalam keturunan keempat puluh. Ayah Baginda telah meninggal sebelum kelahiran Baginda. Sementara ibu Baginda meninggal ketika Baginda berusia kira-kira enam tahun, menjadikannya seorang anak yatim piatu. IBU SUSUAN RASULULLAH SAW : Menurut tradisi keluarga atasan Mekkah, Baginda telah dipelihara oleh seorang ibu angkat IBU SUSU : wanita yang menyusukan baginda yang bernama Halimahtus Sa'adiah di kampung halamannya di pergunungan selama beberapa tahun. RASULULLAH SAW DI JAGA : Dalam tahun-tahun itu, baginda telah dibawa ke Makkah untuk mengunjungi ibu Baginda Aminah binti Wahab. Setelah ibu Baginda wafat, Baginda dijaga oleh datuknya, Abdul Muthalib. Apabila datuknya meninggal, Baginda dijaga oleh bapa saudara Baginda, Abu Talib. Ketika inilah Baginda sering kali membantu mengembala kambing-kambing bapa saudara Baginda di sekitar Mekkah dan kerap menemani bapa saudara Baginda dalam urusan perdagangan ke Syam (Syria). MASA REMAJA RASULULLAH SAW : Dalam masa remaja Baginda, Nabi Muhammad SAW percaya sepenuhnya dengan keesaan Allah SWT. Baginda hidup dengan cara amat sederhana dan membenci sifat-sifat angkuh dan bongkak. Baginda mengamalkan ajaran-ajaran Nabi-Nabi terdahulu terutamanya Nabi Isa Al-Masih. YANG RASULULLAH SAW SAYANG : Baginda menyayangi 1. orang-orang miskin, 2. para janda dan 3. anak-anak yatim serta berkongsi penderitaan mereka dengan berusaha menolong mereka. Baginda juga menghindari semua kejahatan yang menjadi amalan biasa di kalangan para belia pada masa itu seperti berjudi, meminum minuman keras, berkelakuan kasar dan lain-lain, sehingga Baginda dikenali sebagai As Saadiq (yang benar) dan Al Amin (yang amanah). Baginda sentiasa dipercayai sebagai orang tengah kepada dua pihak yang bertelingkah di kampung halamannya di Mekkah. BAGINDA BERUMAHTANGGA : Ketika berusia kira-kira 25 tahun, ayah saudara Baginda menyarankan Baginda untuk bekerja dengan kafilah (rombongan perniagaan) yang dimiliki oleh seorang janda yang bernama Khadijah. Baginda diterima bekerja dan bertanggungjawab terhadap pelayaran ke Syam (Syria). Baginda mengelolakan urusniaga itu dengan penuh bijaksana dan pulang dengan keuntungan luar biasa. ISTERI DAN ANAK RASULULLAH SAW PERTAMA: Khadijah begitu tertarik dengan kejujuran dan watak peribadinya yang mendorong beliau untuk menawarkan diri untuk mengahwini Baginda. Baginda menerima lamarannya dan perkahwinan mereka adalah bahagia. Mereka dikurniakan 6 orang anak (2 lelaki dan 4 perempuan) tetapi kedua-dua anak lelaki mereka, Qasim dan Abdullah meninggal semasa kecil. Manakala anak perempuan baginda ialah Ruqayyah, Zainab, Ummu Kalsum dan Fatimah az-Zahra. Khadijah merupakan satu-satunya isterinya sehinggalah Khadijah meninggal pada usia 64 tahun. ANAK RASULULLAH SAW DENGAN MARIA AL-QIBTIYYAH : Seorang lagi anak Baginda adalah hasil perkahwinan Baginda dengan Maria al-Qibtiyyah. Putera Baginda bersama Maria bernama Ibrahim itu juga meninggal semasa kecil. Isteri-isteri baginda dikenali sebagai "Ummul Mukminin" yang bermaksud "ibu orang-orang beriman". BAPA DAN IBU SAUDARA NABI MUHAMMAD SAW : Al-Harith bin Abdul Muttalib Muqaddam bin Abdul Muttalib Zubair bin Abdul Muttalib Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib Al-Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib Abu Thalib bin Abdul Muttalib Abu Lahab bin Abdul Muttalib Abdul Kaabah bin Abdul Muttalib Hijin bin Abdul Muttalib Dhirar bin Abdul Muttalib Ghaidaq bin Abdul Muttalib Safiyah binti Abdul Muttalib 'Atikah binti Abdul Muttalib Arwa binti Abdul Muttalib Umaimah binti Abdul Muttalib Barrah binti Abdul Muttalib Ummi Hakim al-Bidha binti Abdul Muttalib Hashim bin Abdu'Manan KERASULAN : Nabi Muhammad SAW telah dilahirkan di tengah-tengah masyarakat jahiliyah. Ia sungguh menyedihkan hati Baginda sehingga Baginda kerapkali ke Gua Hira, sebuah gua bukit dekat Makkah, yang kemudian dikenali sebagai Jabal al-Nour, untuk memikirkan cara untuk mengatasi gejala yang dihadapi masyarakatnya. Di sinilah Baginda sering bertapa serta berfikir dengan mendalam, memohon kepada Allah SWT supaya memusnahkan kedurjanaan yang kian berleluasa. WAHYU PERTAMA : Pada suatu malam hari Isnin 21 Ramadan (bersamaan 10 Ogos 610), ketika Baginda sedang bertafakur di Gua Hira, Malaikat Jibril mendatangi Baginda. Jibril membangkitkan Baginda dan menyampaikan wahyu Allah SWT di telinganya. Baginda diminta membaca. Baginda menjawab, "Saya tidak tahu membaca". Jibril mengulangi tiga kali meminta Nabi Muhammad SAW untuk membaca tetapi jawapan Baginda tetap sama. Baginda menjawab, "Saya tidak tahu membaca". Akhirnya, Jibril berkata : "Bacalah dengan menyebut nama Tuhanmu yang menciptakan manusia dari segumpal darah. Bacalah, dengan nama Tuhanmu yang Amat Pemurah yang mengajar manusia dengan perantaraan (menulis, membaca). Dia mengajarkan kepada manusia apa yang tidak diketahuinya." Ini merupakan wahyu pertama yang diterima oleh Nabi Muhammad SAW. Ketika itu baginda berusia 40 tahun setengah. WAHYU TURUN SELAMA 23 TAHUN : Wahyu itu turun kepada Baginda dari semasa ke semasa dalam jangka masa 23 tahun. Siri wahyu ini telah diturunkan menurut panduan yang diberikan kepada Nabi Muhammad SAW dan dikumpulkan dalam buku bernama Al Mushaf yang juga dinamakan Al-Quran (bacaan). AL-QURAN DAN AL SUNNAH : Kebanyakkan ayat-ayatnya mempunyai erti yang jelas. Sebahagiannya diterjemah dan dihubungkan dengan ayat-ayat yang lain. Sebahagiannya pula diterjemah oleh Nabi Muhammad SAW sendiri melalui percakapan Baginda, tindakan dan persetujuan yang terkenal, dengan nama Sunnah. Al-Quran dan al Sunnah digabungkan bersama untuk menjadi panduan dan cara hidup mereka yang menyerahkan diri kepada Allah SWT. BERDAKWAH : Marhalah dakwah baginda boleh dibahagikan mengikut fasa: Fasa di Makkah: hampir 13 tahun Dakwah rahsia: 3 tahun Dakwah terbuka di Makkah: hampir 7 tahun Dakwah kepada semua: 3 tahun Fasa Madinah: 10 tahun Perjuangan dakwah Nabi Muhammad SAW juga boleh diringkaskan sebagai berikut : Pertama: Marhalah Tasqif - tahap pembinaan dan pengkaderan untuk melahirkan individu-individu yang menyakini pemikiran (fikrah) dan metod (thariqah) parti politik guna membentuk kerangka gerakan. Kedua: Marhalah Tafa’ul ma’al Ummah - tahap berinteraksi dengan umat agar umat turut sama memikul kewajiban dakwah Islam, sehingga umat akan menjadikan Islam sebagai panduan utama dalam hidupnya serta berusaha untuk menerapkannya dalam kehidupan bernegara dan bermasyarakat. Ketiga: Marhalah Istilamil Hukmi - tahap pengambilalihan kekuasaan, dan penerapan Islam secara utuh serta menyeluruh, lalu mengembangkannya sebagai risalah Islam ke seluruh penjuru dunia. didalam kitab sirah dan merupakan satu aktiviti penting dalam marhalah kedua perjuangan Nabi Muhammad SAW Lestari atau tidaknya dakwah ditentukan oleh Baginda kerana keberlangsungan dakwah memerlukan dua aspek penting : Pertama : untuk mendapatkan perlindungan (himayah) sehingga tetap dapat melakukan aktiviti dakwah dalam keadaan aman dan terlindung. Kedua : untuk mencapai tampuk pemerintahan dalam rangka menegakkan Daulah Islamiyah (Negara Islam) dan menerapkan hukum-hukum berdasarkan apa yang telah diturunkan Allah SWT dalam kehidupan bernegara dan bermasyarakat. CABARAN BERDAKWAH : Apabila Nabi Muhammad SAW menyeru manusia ke jalan Allah SWT, tidak ramai yang mendengar seruannya. Kebanyakkan pengikut Baginda adalah dari anggota keluarga Baginda dan dari golongan masyarakat bawahan, Antara mereka ialah Khadijah, Ali, Zaid dan Bilal. Apabila Baginda memperhebatkan kegiatan dakwah Baginda dengan mengumumkan secara terbuka Agama Islam yang disebarkan Baginda, dengan itu ramai yang mengikut Baginda. Tetapi pada masa, Baginda menghadapi berbagai cabaran dari kalangan bangsawan dan para pemimpin yang merasakan kedudukan mereka terancam. Mereka bangkit bersama untuk mempertahankan agama datuk nenek mereka. Semangat penganut Islam meningkat apabila sekumpulan kecil masyarakat yang dihormati di Makkah menganut Agama Islam. Antara mereka ialah Abu Bakar, Uthman bin Affan, Zubair bin Al Awwam, Abdul Rahman bin Auf, Ubaidillah bin Harith, Amr bin Nufail dan ramai lagi. Akibat cabaran dari masyarakat jahiliyah di Mekkah, sebahagian orang Islam disiksa, dianiaya, disingkir dan dipulaukan. Baginda terpaksa bersabar dan mencari perlindungan untuk pengikutnya. Baginda meminta Negus Raja Habsyah, untuk membenarkan orang-orang Islam berhijrah ke negaranya. Negus mengalu-alukan ketibaan mereka dan tidak membenarkan mereka diserah kepada penguasa di Makkah. HIJRAH : Di Makkah terdapat Kaabah yang telah dibina oleh Nabi Ibrahim a.s. beberapa abad lalu sebagai pusat penyatuan umat untuk beribadat kepada Allah SWT. Sebelumnya ia dijadikan oleh masyarakat jahiliyah sebagai tempat sembahyang selain dari Allah SWT. Mereka datang dari berbagai daerah Arab, mewakili berbagai suku ternama. Ziarah ke Kaabah dijadikan mereka sebagai sebuah pesta tahunan. Orang ramai bertemu dan berhibur dengan kegiatan-kegiatan tradisi mereka dalam kunjungan ini. Baginda mengambil peluang ini untuk menyebarkan Islam. Antara mereka yang tertarik dengan seruan Baginda ialah sekumpulan orang dari Yathrib (Madinah). Mereka menemui Baginda dan beberapa orang Islam dari Mekah di desa bernama Aqabah secara sembunyi-sembunyi. Setelah menganut Islam, mereka bersumpah untuk melindungi Islam, Nabi Muhammad SAW dan orang-orang Islam Mekkah. Tahun berikutnya, sekumpulan masyarakat Islam dari Yathrib datang lagi ke Makkah. Mereka menemui Nabi Muhammad di tempat yang mereka bertemu sebelumnya. Kali ini, Abbas bin Abdul Muthalib, pakcik Baginda yang belum menganut Islam hadir dalam pertemuan itu. Mereka mengundang Baginda dan orang-orang Islam Mekkah untuk berhijrah ke Yathrib. Mereka berjanji akan melayani mereka sebagai saudara seAgama. Dialog yang memakan masa agak lama diadakan antara mayarakat Islam Yathrib dengan pakcik Nabi Muhammad SAW untuk memastikan mereka sesungguhnya berhasrat mengalu-alukan masyarakat Islam Mekkah di bandar mereka. Nabi Muhammad SAW akhirnya bersetuju untuk berhijrah beramai-ramai ke bandar baru itu. HIJRAH KE MADINAH (YATHRIB) : Mengetahui ramai masyarakat Islam merancang meninggalkan Makkah, masyarakat jahiliyah Mekkah cuba menghalang mereka. Namun kumpulan pertama telahpun berjaya berhijrah ke Yathrib. Masyarakat jahiliyah Mekkah bimbang hijrah ke Yathrib akan memberi peluang kepada orang Islam untuk mengembangkan Agama mereka ke daerah-daerah yang lain. Hampir dua bulan seluruh masyarakat Islam dari Makkah kecuali Nabi Muhammad SAW, Abu Bakar, Ali dan beberapa orang yang daif, telah berhijrah. RANCANGAN MEMBUNUH RASULULLAH SAW : Masyarakat Mekkah kemudian memutuskan untuk membunuh Baginda. Mereka merancang namun tidak berjaya. Dengan berbagai taktik dan rancangan yang teratur, Nabi Muhammad SAW akhirnya sampai dengan selamat ke Yathrib, yang kemudian dikenali sebagai, 'Bandar Rasulullah SAW'. MADINAH : Di Madinah, kerajaan Islam diwujudkan di bawah pimpinan Baginda umat Islam bebas mengerjakan solat di Madinah. Musyrikin Makkah mengetahui akan perkara ini kemudiannya melancarkan beberapa serangan ke atas Madinah tetapi kesemuanya ditangkis dengan mudah oleh umat Islam. Satu perjanjian kemudiannya dibuat dengan memihak kepada pihak Quraish Makkah. Walau bagaimanapun perjanjian itu dicabuli oleh mereka dengan menyerang sekutu umat Islam. Orang Muslim pada ketika ini menjadi semakin kuat telah membuat keputusan untuk menyerang musyrikin Makkah memandangkan perjanjian telah dicabuli. PEMBUKAAN KOTA MAKKAH : Pada tahun kelapan selepas penghijrahan ke Madinah berlaku, Nabi Muhammad SAW berlepas ke Makkah. Tentera Islam yang seramai 10,000 orang tiba di Makkah dengan penuh bersemangat. Takut akan nyawa mereka terkorban, penduduk Makkah bersetuju untuk menyerahkan kota Makkah tanpa sebarang syarat. Nabi Muhammad SAW kemudian mengarahkan supaya kesemua berhala dan patung-patung di sekeliling Kaabah dimusnahkan. MENELADANI PERBUATAN NABI MUHAMMAD SAW : Perbuatan-perbuatan yang dilakukan Nabi Muhammad SAW dibagi menjadi dua cara. Ada yang termasuk perbuatan-perbuatan jibiliyah, iaitu perbuatan yang dilakukan manusia secara Fitriah, dan ada pula perbuatan-perbuatan selain jibiliyah. Perbuatan-perbuatan jibiliyah, seperti berdiri, duduk, makan, minum dan lain sebagainya, tidak ada perselisihan bahawa status perbuatan tersebut adalah mubah (harus), baik bagi Nabi Muhammad SAW maupun bagi umatnya. Oleh kerana itu, perbuatan tersebut tidak termasuk dalam kategori mandub (sunat). Sedangkan perbuatan-perbuatan yang bukan jibiliyah, boleh jadi termasuk dalam hal-hal yang ditetapkan khusus bagi Nabi Muhammad SAW, dimana tidak seorang pun diperkenankan mengikutinya (haram); atau boleh jadi tidak termasuk dalam perbuatan yang diperuntukkan khusus bagi Baginda. KHUSUS BAGI RASULULLAH SAW : Apabila perbuatan itu telah ditetapkan khusus bagi Nabi Muhammad SAW, seperti dibolehkan Baginda melanjutkan puasa pada malam hari tanpa berbuka, atau dibolehkannya menikah dengan lebih dari empat wanita, dan lain sebagainya dari kekhususan Baginda; maka dalam hal ini kita tidak diperkenankan mengikuti Baginda. Sebab, perbuatan-perbuatan tersebut telah terbukti diperuntukkan khusus bagi Baginda berdasarkan Ijmak Sahabat. Oleh kerana itu tidak dibolehkan meneladani Baginda dalam perbuatan-perbuatan semacam ini. Akan halnya dengan perbuatan Baginda yang kita kenal sebagai penjelas bagi kita, tidak ada perselisihan bahawa hal itu merupakan dalil. Dalam hal ini penjelasan tersebut boleh berupa perkataan, seperti RASULULLAH SAW BERSABDA : “ Solatlah kalian sebagaimana kalian melihat aku solat ”. RASULULLAH SAW BERSABDA " Laksanakan manasik hajimu berdasarkan manasikku (apa yang telah aku kerjakan) ". Hadis ini menunjukkan bahawa perbuatan Baginda merupakan penjelas, agar kita mengikutinya. Penjelasan Baginda boleh juga berupa qaraain al ahwal, yakni qarinah/perbuatan yang menerangkan bentuk perbuatan, seperti memotong pergelangan pencuri sebagai penjelas, ALLAH SWT BERFIRMAN : " Maka potonglah tangan keduanya ." (SURAH AL-MAIDAH : 38) Status penjelas yang terdapat dalam perbuatan Baginda, baik berupa ucapan maupun perbuatan yang menerangkan bentuk perbuatan, dapat mengikuti hukum apa yang telah dijelaskan, apakah itu wajib, haram, mandub(sunat) atau mubah(harus) sesuai dengan arah penunjukan dalil. Sedangkan perbuatan-perbuatan Baginda yang tidak terdapat di dalamnya perbuatan yang menunjukkan bahawa hal itu merupakan penjelas, bukan penolakan dan bukan pula ketetapan. Maka dalam hal ini perlu diperhatikan apakah di dalamnya terdapat maksud untuk bertaqarrub (mendekatkan diri kepada Allah SWT) atau tidak. Apabila di dalamnya terdapat keinginan untuk bertaqarrub kepada Allah SWT maka perbuatan itu termasuk mandub (sunat), di mana seseorang akan mendapatkan pahala atas perbuatannya itu dan tidak mendapatkan balasan jika meninggalkannya. Misalnya Solat Duha. Sedangkan jika tidak terdapat di dalamnya keinginan untuk bertaqarrub, maka perbuatan tersebut termasuk mubah (harus). PESANAN TERAKHIR MUHAMMAD (ISI KHUTBAH TERAKHIR MUHAMMAD) : Ketika Nabi Muhammad SAW mengerjakan ibadah haji yang terakhir, maka pada 9 Zulhijjah tahun 10 hijarah di Lembah Uranah, Bukit Arafah, Baginda menyampaikan khutbah terakhirnya di hadapan kaum Muslimin, di antara isi dari khutbah terakhir Nabi Muhammad SAW itu ialah: " Wahai manusia, dengarlah baik-baik apa yang hendak ku katakan, Aku tidak mengetahui apakah aku dapat bertemu lagi dengan kamu semua selepas tahun ini. Oleh itu, dengarlah dengan teliti kata-kataku ini dan sampaikanlah ia kepada orang-orang yang tidak dapat hadir disini pada hari ini. 1. "Wahai manusia, sepertimana kamu menganggap bulan ini dan kota ini sebagai suci, anggaplah jiwa dan harta setiap orang Muslim sebagai amanah suci. 2. Kembalikan harta yang diamanahkan kepada kamu kepada pemiliknya yang berhak. 3. Janganlah kamu sakiti sesiapapun agar orang lain tidak menyakiti kamu lagi. 4. Ingatlah bahawa sesungguhya kamu akan menemui Tuhan kamu dan DIA pasti membuat perhitungan di atas segala amalan kamu. 5. Allah SWT telah mengharamkan riba, oleh itu, segala urusan yang melibatkan riba dibatalkan mulai sekarang. 6. "Berwaspadalah terhadap syaitan demi keselamatan agama kamu. syaitan telah berputus asa untuk menyesatkan kamu dalam perkara-perkara besar, maka berjaga-jagalah supaya kamu tidak mengikutinya dalam perkara-perkara kecil. 7. "Wahai manusia sebagaimana kamu mempunyai hak atas isteri kamu, mereka juga mempunyai hak ke atas kamu. Sekiranya mereka menyempurnakan hak mereka ke atas kamu, maka mereka juga berhak diberikan makan dan pakaian, dalam suasana kasih sayang. Layanilah wanita-wanita kamu dengan baik dan berlemah-lembutlah terhadap mereka kerana sesungguhnya mereka adalah teman dan pembantu kamu yang setia. Dan hak kamu atas mereka ialah mereka sama sekali tidak boleh memasukkan orang yang kamu tidak sukai ke dalam rumah kamu dan dilarang melakukan zina. 8. "Wahai manusia, dengarlah bersungguh-sungguh kata-kataku ini, sembahlah Allah SWT, dirikanlah solat lima waktu, berpuasalah di bulan Ramadhan, dan tunaikanlah zakat dari harta kekayaan kamu. Kerjakanlah ibadah haji sekiranya kamu mampu. 9. Ketahuilah bahawa setiap Muslim adalah saudara kepada Muslim yang lain. Kamu semua adalah sama; tidak seorang pun yang lebih mulia dari yang lainnya kecuali dalam Taqwa dan beramal soleh. 10. "Ingatlah, bahawa kamu akan menghadap Allah SWT pada suatu hari untuk dipertanggungjawabkan diatas segala apa yang telah kamu kerjakan. Oleh itu, awasilah agar jangan sekali-kali kamu terkeluar dari landasan kebenaran selepas ketiadaanku. 11. "Wahai manusia, tidak ada lagi Nabi atau Rasul yang akan datang selepasku dan tidak akan lahir Agama baru. Oleh itu wahai manusia. Nilailah dengan betul dan fahamilah kata-kataku yang telah aku sampaikan kepada kamu. Sesungguhnya aku tinggalkan kepada kamu dua perkara, yang sekiranya kamu berpegang teguh dan mengikuti kedua-duanya, nescaya kamu tidak akan tersesat selama-lamanya. Itulah Al-Qur'an dan Sunnahku. 12. "Hendaklah orang-orang yang mendengar ucapanku, menyampaikan pula kepada orang lain. Semoga yang terakhir lebih memahami kata-kataku dari mereka yang terus mendengar dariku. Saksikanlah Ya Allah, bahawasanya telah aku sampaikan risalah-MU kepada hamba-hamba-MU."

  • How to Fake Pandemics in 4 Easy Steps
    A masterclass by the DOD showman, James Giordano.

    Sasha Latypova
    Who here still believes covid was a real viral pandemic? Or even an epidemic? Welcome! We don’t judge! Actually we do - you are an idiot if after 4 years of this charade you still believe that was an epidemic. The data is clear that there was none, US Government/Trump announced “public health emergency” based on about 40 cases in China without any significant evidence of real illness or economic impact. State governors announced public health emergencies based on nothing. In Ohio it was 3 cases of covid that became the basis for shutting down the entire state. This is because declarations of public health emergency, by law, require no evidence that an emergency exists. Opinion of one unelected bureaucrat is all that’s needed.

    The US Government then provided massive funding to fake-PCR label “covid” cases and murder people in hospitals with remdesivir+vent protocols while denying early effective treatment, as well as fake PCR-attributing covid causes to anything including motor vehicle deaths and gun homicides. Coquin de Chien John Beaudoin is a great resource on learning about this fraud-and-murder event labeled as “pandemic”, and if you have not yet subscribed to his stack, I recommend you do so.

    Pandemics do not exist at all. They are not possible in nature. Had they been possible, we would not be here. At this point I am asked - but the plague! The smallpox! The cholera! The answer is - these are diseases related to lack of sanitation, crowding, infestation with rats and fleas, human and animal waste polluting the drinking water. Once these problems are addressed, epidemics do not exist. And these diseases never caused global pandemics anyway. The “Spanish flu” was also a fake pandemic, a narrative manufactured probably decades after.

    Pandemics are also not possible via “science” and what is called gain-of-function research which amounts to mostly ridiculous attempts at software enabled sorcery, making soups of chemicals mixed with literally shit, as I discussed in my previous article. Yes, toxic chemicals and shit can cause poisoning, but this does not spread by itself. Of course, these labs should be shut down as a waste of money and a local health hazard (mostly to those working in the labs).

    Big thanks to Meryl Nass for pointing to this important piece of data published by the Lancet:

    I think the Lancet was trying to make the opposite point vs the one they actually made. The paper identified 51 scary pathogen “leaks” from labs worldwide (mostly in North America and China). Additionally, CDC collects reports of about 200 of these “escapes” a year in the US (so Lancet paper is a severe under-count of these potentially apocalyptic events). This many dangerous leaks of dangerous pathogens a year! We should have world ending catastrophes every week, right?

    Lancet says it did not result in anything like this… There were 8 deaths (bad and tragic, and in lab workers themselves), and many “exposures” (imaginary concept in public health to justify throwing political dissidents and other random people into quarantine camps). There was one incident in China where 10,000 people acquired bacterial infection. OK, that’s bad too, but did China lock down? Did Europe and US close all flights from China? How come with such large “outbreak” nothing travelled by air and killed half the world? I mean with the coof, the entire world locked down after 40 cases or so!

    Why, with seemingly plenty of opportunities for lab leaks, do pandemics happen only on command from the WHO? And only after all key countries practiced those exact pandemics numerous times in table top exercises?

    All pandemics to date have been faked by the military-industrial globalist cabal (with numerous witting and unwitting participants):

    Sorry, RFK Jr., despite your desire to appear middle ground by including a lie with a majority truthful statement, covid “pandemic” was also faked, using the same basic script, actors and funding.

    What is the pandemic script?

    Let’s hear it from the horse’s mouth. Here is a DOD showman James Giordano. He is not a real scientist, his business is spinning clickbait science propaganda. In this lecture he is explaining how to fake pandemics in four easy steps in a video from 2017 “Neurotechnology in National Defense”:

    Step 1: Poison a few people in a few geographic locations (“sentinel cases”) with a drug (chemical toxin or bio-toxin) that causes “highly morbid” central nervous system (CNS) effects . [I told you “covid” was a synthetic toxin, didn’t I?]

    Step 2: Pretend it was “a bug, a virus modified with CRISPR Cas9” (what James means here is - “oops, forget what I just told you 45 seconds ago about A DRUG. I really-really mean a bioengineered GOF virus!!”)

    Step 3: Use the “REAL BUG” - the Internet! Broadcast on social media that everyone is infected with a “highly lethal agent” that has “asymptomatic, prodromal effects” - anxiety, sleeplessness and worry. When you worry - those are the signs that you have a “lethal asymptomatic infection”. M-kay. That means the undergraduate students in a garage someplace released the bioweapon. Or it “leaked” from BSL4 facility in Wuhan (that sounds scarier, doesn’t it?), and it got to you all the way in Iowa. Believe!!!

    Step 4: All hypochondriacs and “worried-well” run to their doctors and flood the hospital ERs, yay! Now we can get them with the fake PCR-remdesivir-ventilator protocol! and call it “covid”!

    PS. For extra fun play a game of confusing messages and denial with CDC. Does this explain Fauci’s flip-flop on masks early on in 2020 - you bet it does!

    There is a “step 0” that’s required for this plan to really work out - that is constant brainwashing of the masses, programming their brains to respond to some key trigger words in a predictable fashion. Here is one such example (“Blacklist”, 2014):

    I think the 5th horseman is called “ScienceMAD” and he rides a Chimera, something like this:

    Now, let’s hear from the field operative, the real practitioner. Here is now famous Indiana Jones by name of Michael Callahan, the CIA agent with a cover of “infectious disease doctor” explaining his job very clearly. You see, his job is to make prophecies of what viruses with pandemic potential will “inevitably emerge” (wink wink) and then make “vaccines” for them almost immediately. I think it is clear that he is not a real scientist either, but a “prophet” of sorts.

    My own assessment of what Disease X means - the cabal has been and is planning to continue using chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons (yes, CBRN weapons, all of them) on populations in increasing scale and variety. These are internationally prohibited activities that the criminals in US Government and other governments are engaged in by renaming them into “health events” and “preparedness”. Is this dangerous? Yes, just as any act of terrorism. However, we can really get prepared for their “preparedness” by dispelling their fake fear narratives of mutating invisible self-spreading bullshit, and staying alert, utilizing common sense, not relying on their murderous “healthcare” and helping each other.

    How to Fake Pandemics in 4 Easy Steps A masterclass by the DOD showman, James Giordano. Sasha Latypova Who here still believes covid was a real viral pandemic? Or even an epidemic? Welcome! We don’t judge! Actually we do - you are an idiot if after 4 years of this charade you still believe that was an epidemic. The data is clear that there was none, US Government/Trump announced “public health emergency” based on about 40 cases in China without any significant evidence of real illness or economic impact. State governors announced public health emergencies based on nothing. In Ohio it was 3 cases of covid that became the basis for shutting down the entire state. This is because declarations of public health emergency, by law, require no evidence that an emergency exists. Opinion of one unelected bureaucrat is all that’s needed. The US Government then provided massive funding to fake-PCR label “covid” cases and murder people in hospitals with remdesivir+vent protocols while denying early effective treatment, as well as fake PCR-attributing covid causes to anything including motor vehicle deaths and gun homicides. Coquin de Chien John Beaudoin is a great resource on learning about this fraud-and-murder event labeled as “pandemic”, and if you have not yet subscribed to his stack, I recommend you do so. Pandemics do not exist at all. They are not possible in nature. Had they been possible, we would not be here. At this point I am asked - but the plague! The smallpox! The cholera! The answer is - these are diseases related to lack of sanitation, crowding, infestation with rats and fleas, human and animal waste polluting the drinking water. Once these problems are addressed, epidemics do not exist. And these diseases never caused global pandemics anyway. The “Spanish flu” was also a fake pandemic, a narrative manufactured probably decades after.

    Russian Strikes Destroyed Ukrainian Decision-Making Centers And Military Facilities
    Fire in Kharkov
    As a result of the bloody Ukrainian attack on civilians in the Russian city of Belgorod, at least 24 people were killed, including four children. 131 civilians were wounded, including 18 children. The number of casualties is growing, since dozens of people received severe wounds and stay in hospitals, where doctors are fighting for their lives.

    Ukrainian Nazis intentionally shelled crowded areas in the center of Belgorod in an attempt to provoke similar response of Russian forces. The Kiev regime urgently needs more Ukrainian blood to share footage of Russian attacks on civilians in the MSM. This would help Zelenskiy to pledge for money and weapons from his NATO patrons.

    In its turn, the Russian military launched retaliation strikes on the Ukrainian military, inflicting heavy losses to the Ukrainian command. From the very beginning of the special military operation, the Russian military has stated that they do not strike civilian targets and continue to follow this rule.

    The last night was marked by another wave of massive Russian strikes throughout Ukraine. LINK On the morning of December 31, the Russian Ministry of Defense, summed up the results of the attack, confirming that it was launched in response to the terrorist attack in Belgorod.

    Russian forces hit decision-making centers and military facilities in the city of Kharkiv, which were used by the criminal Kiev regime.

    A high-precision missile strike on the former Kharkiv Palace hotel destroyed representatives of the Main Intelligence Governorate of Ukraine (GUR) and the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), who were directly involved in the planning and execution of the terrorist attack in Belgorod.

    There were also up to two hundred foreign mercenaries who were planned to be involved in conducting terrorist raids on the border territory of the Russian Federation.

    The Kharkiv Palace was famous for meetings of various high-ranked military delegations. In early 2023, the hotel hosted US Army General Keith Kellogg and US national security and intelligence expert Robert McCreary. Later, various mercenaries from Asian and Latin American countries, officers of the GUR and the SBU settled in the hotel.

    According to unofficial reports, a new batch of some professional foreign mercenaries, who arrived to Kharkiv to take part in some military operations near Kupyansk and in the Russian border regions, stayed in this very hotel. According to local reports, fighters from the so-called Russian volunteer corps of the GUR were also invited to the hotel for some consultations. The night strike on Kharkiv Palace was likely a planned operation of the Russian military which was dedicated to the revenge for the attack in Belgorod.

    There are no civilians in hotels in the Ukrainian cities located close to the frontlines and Russian border. All expensive hotels there are used only by the Ukrainian military. Footage from the city confirmed that there were no civilians in the area, but some military men in foreign uniform were spotted near the hotel. Moreover, the local reports claimed that at least one British citizen, who allegedly was a security adviser to German journalists, was wounded.

    The Russian Ministry of Defense also reported more high-precision missile strikes on the building of the Security Service of Ukraine in the Kharkiv region and the temporary deployment point of the nationalist formation “Right Sector”. As a result of them, representatives of the staff of the SBU, foreign mercenaries and fighters of the Kraken unit, who were directly involved in the preparation of sabotage attacks on Russian territory, were eliminated.

    According to unofficial reports, the Osnova and Levada railway stations, as well as three fuel and lubricants military bases, were also hit in the Kharkiv region.

    The Russian military also officially confirmed destruction of the fuel bases in Kharkov and Zaporozhie, from which Ukrainian groups of troops in the Kharkov and Orekhov directions were supplied.

    The Russian Ministry of Defense continued the list of targets hit last night with high-precision strikes on a branch of the national space assets control center in the area of Zalessky in the Khmelnitsky region. The assets were used by the AFU for reconnaissance operations.

    In addition, missile strikes destroyed the temporary deployment points of the 59th Motorized Infantry, 79th Airborne Assault Brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and foreign mercenaries with a total number of up to 600 militants, as well as parking lots of military equipment and artillery systems in the settlements of Selidovo, Kurakhovo and on the territory of the Korotchenko mine in the Donetsk People’s Republic.

    As a result, the enemy suffered significant losses. Two launchers of HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems have been destroyed, with the help of which the Kiev regime planned to launch new attacks on Donetsk during the New Year holidays.

    We emphasize once again that the Russian Armed Forces strike only at military facilities and directly related infrastructure.

    During the night, more Russian strikes were reported in the industrial facilities and port infrastructure in the Odessa region. Presumably, the targets included the Shkolny airfield and facilities used for production of marine drones. Ukrainian sources also confirmed that a fire that broke out as a result of some strikes in the Kiev region.

  • Nasa and their CGI that has drastically improved over the years, they don't even need to waste money on building the rockets when they can create everything via computer.

    Many people believe that using rockets we are actually able to get to outer space, maybe in CGI, but in reality these rockets are not even able to leave Ionosphere using the fuel as internal combustion is simply not possible.

    The Ionosphere is literally the last barrier and its about 50 miles from Earth. This is not space, this is still in the Earths orbit, this is where the Balloon Satellites with helium are hovering, they are not in space.

    If they really want explore space, other planets/galaxies, they need to completely reinvent this technology using electro magnetic motors, even if they have this tech already, you can be sure it won't be announced. Using this firecracker technology is simply not going to cut it.

  • The Kratom (Ketum) industry in southern Thailand
    The Malaysian connection

    Over the last 12 months, stalls have been opening up across southern Thailand to sell ketum leaves, syrups, and mixed drinks. In Thailand ketum is called kratom.

    Kratom is now sold on every street corner, and in between, across all southern Thai towns. These stalls are very cheap to open, usually in front of homes, or shops to sell to passers-by.

    In 2021 Thailand updated the Narcotics Act (No.8) 201, which removed kratom from the list of prohibited substances, where all offences for cultivating, processing, and selling were eliminated. This was published in the Government Gazette, making it law in August 2022.

    Kratom, or its scientific name Mitragyna speciosa (Korth.) is a large forest tree found in northern Malaysia and southern Thailand. The tree is adaptable to cultivation, and takes around two to three years to produce marketable leaves. The leaves have been used by locals in both southern Thailand and northern Malaysia for pain relief for hundreds of years. The leaves either chewed of boiled into a tea or syrup also provides some euphoric effects. Other claim kratom makes them energetic. Ethnobotanic data records that kratom was used as a substitute for opium, supressing withdrawal symptoms. Observation and research data indicates the use of kratom is additive.

    Kratom is sort after in southern Thailand by farmers and rubber tappers, food delivery motorcyclists, lori and bus drivers, small market traders, and manual workers. Kratom syrup is usually mixed with coffee, or Coca Cola.

    Kratom retailing is now a choice start-up retailing business, due to the low set up costs, ability to sell from home, or set up a stall along the side of the road. The setting up of kratom stalls now out paces coffee stalls and kueh stalls selling breakfast items.

    Its very difficult to estimate the number of kratom stalls that now exist. More are being set up every-day. Within the Hat Yai area and access roads alone, there are probably in excess of 500 stalls. This would run into many thousands across southern Thailand. This is amazing, considering just over six months ago there was no one selling kratom leaves of syrups openly.

    There is probably an oversupply of stalls as kratom stalls are still being opened up. The ones that succeed are those which are open at night and placed in high traffic locations, with easy parking.

    Kratom, unlike marijuana is thriving ion southern Thailand. Marijuana gained much more publicity than kratom. People rushed out to buy marijuana plants, restaurants utilizing marijuana opened for business, as did coffee shops. However, this popularity only lasted a few months, and has been taken over by kratom as the drug of choice in the south.

    Marijuana not making waves in southern Thailand

    The Malaysian connection

    As from last year, kratom leaves could be imported into Thailand legally, without any license requirements from the Narcotics Control Board (NCB). Most of the kratom leaves sold and used to make syrups in Thailand come from Malaysia, cultivated in Kelantan, northern Perak, Kedah, and Perlis. Even a very well known politician in Perlis cultivates nearly 100 acres of kratom. This practice continues unabated, evenwhen Ketum is considered a narcotic in Malaysia. The alkaloid mitragynine contained in ketum leaves is categorized as a psychotropic substance under the Poisons Act 1952. Police have long being cutting down ketum trees found growing in FELDA reserves in Perlis. However, under the current laws, exporting ketum is illegal but planting ketum is perfectly fine. This makes it almost impossible for the police to stop the flow of ketum to our neighbouring countries.

    Ketum Raid
    However, due to the growing demand from Thailand, Malaysian farmers keep cultivating ketum and exporting their leaves to Thailand. Ketum is a bonanza crop for Malaysian farmers. One ketum tree can produce 10kg of leaves with revenue of RM200 every two weeks. Hence, the smuggling of ketum leaves is on an upward trend. Some estimate the value of exporting ketum leaves to be as high as RM 180m million per annum.

    Malaysian kratom leaves are considered the best quality in southern Thailand, where the alkaloid content is higher than local varieties.

    The kratom market will keep growing in Thailand, as central, northern, and eastern Thailand are yet to catch on to this opportunity.

    So far there are few signs the government will walk back on the decriminalization of kratom, as they are trying to do with marijuana. Kratom syrup is now a commodity item, particularly among those undertaking manual jobs. The attraction to this product is its addictiveness. The attraction to starting up a kratom retail stall is the extremely low capital requirements.

    In Malaysia, there has been growing support for the idea of legalising the cultivation of ketum for medical purposes. In April 2022, former Deputy Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Zahidi Zainul Abidin said that the Cabinet had given the “green light” on this matter. On 18 May 2022, Kedah’s State Economic Planning Division has officially completed its proposal to seek federal approval to legalise the export of ketum. However, the government changed in November 2022 and there has been silence on the matter.
