MODERNA’s Chief Scientific Officer’s TED Talk Is Peak Absurdity (Opinion)

In a new TED talk Moderna’s Chief Scientific Officer Melissa J. Moore reaches peak (disgusting) absurdity as she describes the supposed wonders of mRNA “vaccines”—especially those used for COVID-19—without relaying any of their pitfalls.

In a new TED talk posted to YouTube on May 18, 2022, Melissa J. Moore, Moderna’s chief scientific officer, touts mRNA “vaccines”—especially those deployed for COVID-19—as “both remarkably safe and incredibly effective.” Which must come as an incredible comfort to anybody hesitant about getting an mRNA injection or two.

The only problem, however, is Moore is either seriously misinformed, or outright lying. Because the claims she makes throughout her TED talk are easily falsifiable, and (disgustingly) absurd.

Take, for example, Moore’s opening remark:

“Many of the people watching this talk by now will have had one, two, three, or even four doses of a messenger RNA vaccine. With billions of these shots now in arms, it’s clear that this new way of making vaccines is both remarkably safe and incredibly effective.

This statement—of course—is patently absurd and hypocritical on its face. Moore says, almost within the same breath, that some people have had four doses of “vaccine” in order to protect themselves from COVID-19. But that statement evinces the fact that the “vaccines” are not effective. If they were, people wouldn’t need to get one, two, or even more “boosters.” I.e. the “four doses of messenger RNA vaccine” Moore discusses are only necessary because earlier doses fail. (This fact has been borne out again and again in the literature.)

Moore goes on to say that “mRNA [medicines] give us the ability to not only prevent disease, but also treat previously intractable disorders.” Again, the use of the word “prevent” here is beyond ludicrous. At this point—indeed, much earlier than May 2022—countless supposed public health officials and big pharma execs have come out and said, unequivocally, that the COVID-19 mRNA injections do not prevent people from contracting COVID-19. Including, for example, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, Dr. Anthony Fauci, as well as current CDC Director Rochelle Walensky .

Indeed, in the tweeted CNN video immediately above Walensky states—again, unequivocally—that “our vaccines are working exceptionally well, they continue to work well for Delta, with regard to severe illness and death, they prevent it. But what they can’t do any more is prevent transmission. So if you’re going home to somebody who has not been vaccinated, somebody who can’t get vaccinated, somebody who might be immunosuppressed or a little bit frail, somebody who has comorbidities that put them at high risk, I would suggest you wear a mask in public indoor settings.”

Further along in her talk Moore says something truly disturbing to anybody paying attention to the development of supposedly medicinal mRNA products. The science officer—who graduated with a BS in Science from William and Mary and then earned a PhD in Biological Chemistry at MIT—claims that “we can dose mRNA over and over again.” Moore adds “and that’s exactly what’s happening [now].”

If anybody should know the dangers of repeatedly dosing mRNA, however, it should be Moore; and Moderna’s employees en masse as well. That is because Moderna, a biotech company founded in 2011, has been utterly unable to bring any product—whatsoever—to market aside from the Warp Speed “vaccines.” Not only that, aside from Warp Speed, the company was never even been able to finish phase 3 clinical trials for any of its products.

Moore has been the company’s chief scientific officer since 2016 as well, so she can’t claim any ignorance of this fact. She’s also apparently partially to blame for the company’s myriad failures as she holds such a prestigious position within the corporation. And, furthermore, it’s known and has been reported widely that giving multiple doses of lipid nanoparticles (or LNPs)—the “bubbles of fat” that carry Moderna’s “vaccine” mRNA into cells—is extremely dangerous.

Lipid nanoparticles have “long bedeviled the whole [pharma] field,” Damian Garde wrote in a 2016 article for STAT. He noted at the time that “nanoparticles can lead to dangerous side effects, especially if a patient has to take repeated doses over months or years.”

Link to the FDA’s Summary Basis for Regulation for the Pfizer “vaccine”

Not only is repeated dosing of LPNs a horrible idea, the Pfizer clinical trial upon which the COVID-19 mRNA “vaccines” were approved by the FDA—literally, unequivocally—showed more deaths in the “vaccine” arm than in the placebo arm. In fact, out of 38 deaths in Pfizer’s trial, with a cutoff date of March 13, 2021, Pfizer’s own data show 21 deaths in the “vaccinated” group, and only 17 in the placebo group. (An excerpt evincing this fact is provided above, along with a link to the source Summary Basis for Regulation.)

Moore goes on to say there are “Over 175 clinical trials now opened using mRNA based medicines that are recruiting patients.” She adds that “Another 54 clinical trials are waiting in the wings, ready to be opened.”

The only problem, again, is that Moore left out the part where Moderna’s dozens of mRNA products have been unmitigated failures over the last decade, no matter how many of them were in the company’s development pipeline. And there were a great many. (Perhaps not so incidentally, no other company—in history—was ever able to make LPN/mRNA tech work either.)

Another lie, or example of utter ignorance, from Moore is her claiming the Moderna “vaccines” are now “fully approved” by the FDA. This, again, is utterly false. As Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie asks rhetorically in the tweet immediately above: “FDA approval is a legal distinction if it is nothing else, so why do some act as though legal distinctions do not matter when they conflate FDA-approved Comirnaty (not available in the US) with non-FDA-approved Pfizer BioNTech?”

Link to the FDA’s Summary Basis for Regulation for the Pfizer “vaccine”

Indeed, only Comirnatywhich is unavailable in the U.S.—has been given full FDA approval. The Pfizer-BioNTech “vaccine” that people have been injecting themselves with is still Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) only at this point. (See excerpt immediately above from Pfizer’s summary basis for regulation.)

Finally, regarding Moore’s gross negligence and abysmal ability to reconcile her TED talk with reality, the “scientific” officer touts she and others at Moderna are “working on a combination vaccine for COVID, flu, and respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV.” Moore adds that “we’re hoping that this will then be an annual booster that you will get just like a flu vaccine.” 

As with Moore’s other claims, this one is misleading. While Moore claims Moderna is working on this so-called “multiplex” annual booster, what she doesn’t mention is Moderna has been trying—for years and years—to develop an mRNA flu vaccine, but has been unable to because of safety and efficacy issues. Not to mention prior to Warp Speed, there had never been “vaccines” for coronaviruses like the one that causes COVID-19; in large part because the viruses mutate so much. Speaking of which, Moore doesn’t even mention during her opening that all of these first, second, third, and fourth doses people have been injecting into themselves have all had the mRNA for the original SARS-CoV-2 spike protein; not the one for mutated strains like Delta and Omicron.

Whether Moore knows it or not, perhaps the end goal of Moderna is not to have effective—or safe—treatments for people. Rather, maybe Moderna’s mRNA shots, along with those from Pfizer (and the adenovirus vector ones from other big pharma companies), are more about keeping the public in line more than anything else. In the video immediately above Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel says “[Moderna’s] goal is to be able to have a single annual booster so we don’t have compliance issues where people don’t want to get two to three shots per winter.”

For anybody who knows what’s going on, “compliance issues” is just where we, the public, are going to start. As for Moore, she undoubtedly deserves the same fate that CNN’s “Dr.” Sanjay Gupta does.
