The biggest crimes against humanity are apparently awarded with the Nobel Prize these days. The so-called ‘fact checkers‘ of the mainstream will not be able to dispute the fact check below. The true aim pursued by the Nobel Prize Announcement is revealed by one of the Committee’s speakers: the Announcement is essentially nothing more than a marketing campaign:

„…but I think giving a Nobel Prize for this Covid-19 vaccine may make hesitant people take the vaccine and be sure that it‘s very efficient and it’s safe.“

Prof Olle Kämpe, one of the speakers of the Nobel Prize Committee

Despite the German Robert-Koch-Institut (RKI) admitting that it lacks efficacy (please see email from the RKI dated 23rd March 2022), this ’vaccine‘ is once more being hyped, this time through the Nobel Prize Announcement. Although the principle ’attack is the best form of defence‘ where this so-called ’vaccine‘ is concerned has become worn, this awarding of the Nobel Prize to Karikó and Weissman „for their discoveries concerning nucleoside base modifications that enabled the development of effective mRNA vaccines against COVID-19“, is a last-ditch effort to maintain control over public perception.

All endeavours of governments to establish mRNA technology as a medical means against a respiratory virus which underlies frequent and sudden mutations, have failed. As a result, they apparently deemed it necessary to demolish the previously impeccable reputation of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, and simply abused this well-respected award as a last ditch attempt to protect and promote this technology. The awarding of this year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine ‘pays tribute‘ to a realm of scientists who have sacrificed the principles of true science in an obscene self-presentation as camouflaged do-gooders. All of this is done for the supposed good of mankind.

It was never to be expected that the so-called fact checkers, with their somewhat limited ‘truthfulness‘ focussing on the consistent negation of scientific fact, would critically evaluate the Karolinska-Institute’s Nobel Prize Committee’s decision-making. So Prof Dr Klaus Steger, molecular biologist at the University of Giessen, and Dr Christof Schalhorn, expert for medical devices, took on the task of carrying out a two page fact check based on the Nobel Prize Committee’s three statements, including the Press Announcement (interestingly only available as a YouTube video). The Committee justified its decision in the following three sources:

I. Press Release: www.nobelprize.org/prizes/medicine/2023/press-release/

II. Advanced Information: www.nobelprize.org/prizes/medicine/2023/advanced-information/

III. Press Announcement: www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JP-yDsLc3k

The answers given to the questions asked by the media revealed themselves to be a particularly scandalous example of unscrupulousness, and these were also evaluated by Prof Dr Klaus Steger and Dr Christof Schalhorn, with these two gentlemen commenting on the boldest of claims.

The conclusion of the scientists is:

„The awarding of the 2023 Nobel Prize in Medicine to Karikó and Weissman has caused a substantial and long-term damage to trust in independent science. Not only did the Nobel Prize Committee ignore scientific facts, but with its unsubstantiated claims it also demonstrated a lack of understanding of evidence-based medicine.“

Prof Dr Klaus Steger and Dr Christof Schalhorn

We would like to express our gratitude to the true fact-checkers for producing an easily understandable fact check for posterity.

In addition to the two-page fact check, we also present an annotated transcript of the press announcement.
