The Alan Sanders Show

In this exerpt, which originally aired on Saturday, August 21, I breakdown my thoughts on Biden's Afghanistan debacle. This disaster sits squarely on the President's shoulders. He was not following the plan negotiated by former President Donald J. Trump. He was not listening to his military commanders nor the memos sent to his own Secretary of State. He wanted to appease the woke factions of the Democrat party and hold a campaign promise, without regard on how to make it a success. In his mind, simply cutting off military support and pulling the plug was a cool idea. Now, the leaders of the...

For a fitness first Saturday, it was my pleasure to welcome personal trainer, Susan Delmonico of SJD Health and Fitness, to the show. Susan brought up the topics of overall fitness and how important it is, especially as we age. We also discuss going through your cupboards and taking stock of the food choices that have been made in the past. From there, it's time to put a new shopping/meal plan in place. Yes, buying fresh fruits and vegetables can be more costly, but there are way to mitigate your bill. Pay attention to sales, loyalty discount cards and coupons. Learn to plan your meals for the...

The Alan Sanders Show

In this episode, I get the chance to chat with Dr. Tim Ryan about variants, vaccines and natural immunity. We also touch on the dangers of the government trying to censor free speech by pressuring social media outlets to lock down information they don't like. Both Dr. Ryan and I are all in favor of those who are at-risk getting their vaccinations. What we have a real hard time understanding is why natural recovery and immunity is constantly ignored. Studies and data consistently show natual recovery is the strongest protection against reinfection, including against variants. A vaccine is the...

In this episode, I get the chance to spend time with who is running for Congress in New York's 14th district. She will be challenging incumbent, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. Tina came to fame at the height of the Covid-19 shutdown. She was always vocal on her social media, but something about Covid and the disastrous policies of Governor Cuomo catapulted her daily videos onto the national stage. We start off with her explaining how she came down with Covid-19 and her doctor immediately prescribed hydroxychloroquine. However, when she went to have it filled, her pharmacist said she could not...

This episode orginally aired on July 17, 2021. This portion of the show contains all of the topics discussed in the second full hour of the on-air radio broadcast, featuring an interview with Dr. Tim Ryan of the Physician's Practice. To open, I remind the audience about the wording of the First Amendment. The White House is playing cute with backdoor censorship of free speech and if allowed, it won't just be Covid-19 information they will want to control. This leads to the recent presentation of the election audit taking place in Maricopa County, AZ. There are several significant questions and...

In this episode, joined me to discuss election integrity and the administration's desire to get Facebook to censor posts it does not like. This interview took place on the syndicated Erick Erickson Show, which originally aired during the third hour on July 15, 2021. There is a move to try to nationalize elections under the guise of state's making it harder to vote. In reality, each legislature saw just how easily a mass mail-in balloting campaign could be fraught with abuse. In addition, many Secretaries of State, board of election supervisors, governors and others changed voting laws on...

This episode is from the second hour of The Erick Erickson Show, heard nationally on Thursday, July 15, where I discuss the ironies of having an open door policy at our southern border, but escaping Cubans are not wanted. Why is that? Could it be this regime understands those who escape communist dictatorships tend to vote Republican? We saw images of Cubans in the streets, waving American flags and demanding freedom. DHS Secretary Mayorkas does not want any refugees from Cuba coming to the United States of America. As to the US/Mexico border, it's open season! Illegal border crossers do not...

In this episode, I spend some time mocking my favorite target for derision and buffoonery, Dr. Fauci. Just as we are celebrating the 245th birthday of the United States of America, Dr. Fauci decries two Americas in his Sunday talk-show tour.  This is taken from the first hour from July 5, 2021 when I was on WSB Radio in Atlanta, Georgia. Before I can get to topic, breaking local news of a triple homicide investigation is ongoing, so I get a chance to speak with reporter, Robyn Walensky. (As of the time of this piece being published, the suspect has been found and apprehended.)  To...

It this epsiode, I discuss the recent phenomenon sweeping the country called vaccine fanaticism. The politization of Covid-19 variants, masks and vaccines has led to a disgusting fracture in our nation. Rather than keeping the discussion based on those with immunity versus those without it, we have gone all-in on pitting the vaccinated against the unvaccinated. 

VACCINE FANATICISM

Using a recent paper by Dr. Marty Makary of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine editor in chief of MedPage Today, I point out the utter fallacy of requiring all Americans to be vaccinated. First, let me say, I am pro-vaccine for those who need it or want it. The whole purpose of the vaccine is to prevent a serious illness leading to hospitalization or death. It does not mean you will never get sick again! 

However, the vaccine is a method of tricking your body to force a response from your immune system. By creating a similar spike protein found on SARS-Cov-2, the goal is for the immune system to learn how to fight it so when you do get infected, you will be able to fight it off more successfully.

We are well over 18 months observing patients who were infected and recovered naturally, gaining an immunity that is effective and long-lasting. That's because natural recovery means we develop antibodies to the entire surface of the virus, not just a spike protein faked by the vaccine.

The power of natural immunity was recently affirmed in an Israeli study, which found a 6.7 times greater level of protection among those with natural immunity vs. those with vaccinated immunity. In other words, though vaccines are a great way to provide protection, natural recovery is almost 7x times more powerful in protecting you from future infection. 

Dr. Makary states: 

Requiring the vaccine in people who are already immune with natural immunity has no scientific support. While vaccinating those people may be beneficial – and it's a reasonable hypothesis that vaccination may bolster the longevity of their immunity – to argue dogmatically that they must get vaccinated has zero clinical outcome data to back it. As a matter of fact, we have data to the contrary: A Cleveland Clinic study found that vaccinating people with natural immunity did not add to their level of protection.

So instead of talking about the vaccinated and the unvaccinated, we should be talking about the immune and the non-immune. Immunity is something people can test for with a simple antibody test. I would never recommend that anyone intentionally acquire the infection in order to get natural immunity, but vaccine passports and proof-of-vaccine documents should recognize it.

VACCINATING CHILDREN

As I wrap up my discussion of vaccine fanaticism, I wanted to draw attention to the eggregious notion that children should be vaccinated. We know they are the least suseptible and will have mild to no symptoms. Conversely, we are seeing alarming instances of children having serious complications from the vaccine. Dr. Makary states:

When it comes to vaccinating healthy kids – and you could argue young people up to 25 – there is a case for vaccination but it's not strong. The COVID-19 death risk is clustered among kids with a comorbid condition, like obesity. Of the more than 330 COVID-19 deaths in kids under age 25, there's good preliminary data suggesting that most or nearly all appear to be in kids with a pre-existing condition. For kids with concurrent medical conditions, the case for vaccination is compelling. But for healthy kids?

It may be that the standard two-dose regimen is a dose too high and is inducing a strong inflammatory response causing these complications. A single dose of the vaccine may be highly effective in kids, as reported by Tel Aviv University. Researchers there found that one dose was 100% effective in kids ages 12 to 15. For now, until we get better data, I recommend one dose for healthy kids who have not already had COVID-19 in the past.

We must demand our public health officials update their talking points to make it about immunity vs. non-immunity. This is a much better way to convince those who have not yet achieved immunity to take appropriate steps, rather than creating an antagonistic atmosphere arrising from vaccine fanaticism.
