Just imagine where we’d be without constant government threats and faux-guidance regarding what can only be described at this point as a political pandemic. And each time an expert pops his head up to try to inject a little common sense and real medical/scientific expertise, it’s like Biden administration whack-a-mole.
For a year or so, government hacks dressed as experts have been shooting down any attempts to promote herd immunity and belittle anyone who insists that natural immunity is at least equal, if not more effective than a vaccine.
But bravely they continue to try to get the word out. Dr. Marty Makary, of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, is one of the brave souls. And braver still, he urges Americans to disregard the vaunted CDC guidelines on vaccinations.

Johns Hopkins professor says ‘ignore the CDC’ — ‘natural immunity works’
A professor at the renowned Johns Hopkins School of Medicine advised Americans recently to “ignore” guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention due to the public health agency’s puzzling refusal to recognize natural immunity from previous infection.
What are the details?
Dr. Marty Makary, who also serves as a professor at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, suggested during a Tuesday appearance on “The Vince Coglianese Show” that 150 million Americans, or “half the country,” likely already have natural immunity to COVID-19 due to having been infected with the virus and then recovering.
Yet despite that staggering figure, Makary lamented the fact that the CDC, in concert with Biden administration officials, have neglected to recognize the reality of the situation. Instead, previously infected individuals who decline being vaccinated are routinely “demonized” by health officials who insist that virtually all Americans must be vaccinated before normal life can resume.
But “herd immunity” has already been reached, argued Makary, citing up-to-date vaccination and infection data to suggest that 80% to 85% of Americans are currently protected from the virus.
