Early in the Covid-19 pandemic three years ago I wrote about it here  and here; also subsequently here and here.


In these articles I said that a) Covid-19 was indeed a serious health threat; b) vaccines may be a useful treatment but they were a gamble (because of a lack of long term--many years duration--testing and the fact that sometimes vaccines do more harm than good); c) I personally chose to get vaxed and boosted, knowing it was a gamble; d) vaccines were at best not the only proper response to the pandemic but the ruling class was proceeding as if they were. 

I also wrote that the ruling class always needed to be perceived as acting to protect the welfare of the general public or else it risked revolution. For this reason, when there was a pandemic, the ruling class would be motivated to do things to seem, if not actually, to be protecting the public, and if dramatic things were required for this purpose (such as shut-downs) then it would enact them. The point is that, contrary to what the people who called the pandemic a "shamdemic" said, the shut-down and later vaccination policies of the ruling class--which did indeed increase ruling class social control for a time--were not necessarily only intended to increase the power of the ruling class over ordinary people, nor were these policies proof that the pandemic was a fake 'shamdemic' that was no more serious than the flu and deliberately created as a pretext for increased social control.


To avoid revolution the ruling class is sometimes forced to do the right thing; for example Hitler was forced to cancel his evil euthanasia (killing useless eaters) program to avoid revolution when the formerly secret program was discovered by a furious public.


At the time of my earlier writing I had no evidence that the published results of the Pfizer and Moderna RNA vaccines were fraudulent, although I knew (and had written about the fact) that Big Pharma did sometimes 'cook the data' when it was profitable to do so, as described in the book The Illusion of Evidence-Based Medicine.

Before discussing new updates, I want to point out, for the record, that the clinical trials of the Covid-19 vaccinations never concluded that the vaccination prevented getting infected with the Covid-19 virus, nor did they show that a vaccinated infected person was a lot less contagious than a non-vaccinated infected person (a little bit less contagious due to fewer days of shedding virus, but not a lot less contagious); these clinical trials only showed that vaccinated infected people had less severe disease than unvaccinated infected people.


Recently, however, I encountered this article that suggests that Moderna 'cooked the data' about its RNA vaccine.

I also encountered this video that suggests that some deaths attributed primarily to Covid-19 were not actually so.

On October 9, 2023 I watched this video interview of Professor Dalgleish, a very top notch vaccine authority, about the harm of Covid-19 vaccines and boosters. Maybe he is right; I don't pretend to know for sure. It would be instructive to see a good back-and-forth written debate between Prof. Dalgleish and scientists who disagree with him. Alas, our medical/academic establishment often does not permit such.

There are some reports that the frequency of adverse events is way too high not to be alarming. 

Articles by skeptics re Covid-19 and vaccinations:

1. "10 Years After HHS Asked CDC to Study Safety of Childhood Vaccine Schedule, CDC Hasn’t Produced It"

2. "Analysis of health outcomes in vaccinated and unvaccinated children: Developmental delays, asthma, ear infections and gastrointestinal disorders"

3. "Health effects in vaccinated versus unvaccinated children, with covariates for breastfeeding status and type of birth"

If I encounter more such articles or videos I will link to them here.

An interesting website is Covid-19 Data Science. It has, for example, an article titled,"What does USA Group Term Life Insurance Report say about Young Adult Excess Deaths in Fall 2021?"

An article titled, "The dead don't lie: 2 million dead from mRNA jabs!" presents data that seem to show that the CDC and FDA ignored an alarming number of deaths closely following (and hence likely caused by) administration of the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA Covid-19 vaccines, but in contrast acted quickly to halt the use of a J&J DNA Covid-19 vaccine when there were far fewer such reported deaths.

There are two questions this article raises: #1. Do the data provide persuasive evidence that the mRNA vaccine causes death? and #2. What is the explanation for the FDA's behavior?

Regarding the first question (do the vaccines cause death?), there are four reasons to doubt the authors' affirmative inference (mRNA vaccines cause death):


a) The fact that most VAERS deaths occur within three days of vaccination might be due not to the vaccine being the cause of death (as the authors assume) but rather due to the fact that deaths that occur shortly after vaccination are more likely to be reported to the VAERS data base than deaths that occur long after vaccination. (If you're a physician and your patient dies two days after getting vaccinated you're a lot more likely to report this to VAERS than if your patient dies six months after being vaccinated, right?) The study discussed here next addressed this possible source of bias by looking at all reported deaths and serious events following Covid-19 vaccination in a data set that captured all of them (unlike VAERS data) to see if these events were more likely to be soon after vaccination than otherwise, and found they were not more likely to be sooner after vaccination.

b) The fact that there are many more deaths reported in VAERS following the Covid-19 vaccinations than following some earlier vaccinations might be in part due to there having been many more people vaccinated with the Covid-19 vaccination than with the earlier vaccinations in the comparison. The vaccinations that lots of Americans got were for childhood diseases and they received these vaccinations as young children. Young children who get vaccinated are typically perfectly healthy and from families that are making sure they get good health care, hence are very unlikely to die soon. The next most widely received vaccine before the Covid-19 pandemic was the flu vaccine, which only 59.3% of Americans received, compared to 81% of Americans who got at least one Covid-19 vaccination. Furthermore, Covid-19 vaccinations, in contrast to childhood vaccinations, were given especially to people who were at high risk of dying: the elderly and people with chronic or acute disease. So when the Covid-19 vaccine was given, there was a sharp increase in the number of people getting vaccinated and also in the mortality risk of those getting vaccinated, which would cause an increase in the number of deaths after vaccination compared to prior to the Covid-19 vaccinations, even if the vaccination did not cause death. 

c) The fact that there are many more deaths reported in VAERS following Covid-19 vaccinations than following some earlier vaccinations might be in part due to the fact that there were many more deaths due to Covid-19 than prior to the pandemic and even some people vaccinated for the disease still died from it because the vaccine was not by any means perfect: "By April 2022, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data show that about 6 in 10 adults dying of COVID-19 were vaccinated or boosted, and that’s remained true through at least August 2022 (the most recent month of data)." Thus the mortality due to the Covid-19 pandemic itself could explain the sharp rise in reported deaths in the VAERS data without any need to assume the deaths were caused by the vaccine.

d) The authors' extrapolation from the 20,000 VAERS reported deaths to two million actual vaccine-caused deaths is based on the assumption that deaths are as un-reported as less serious events are. This is probably not a true assumption, because deaths elicit far more attention than less serious events.

Regarding the second question (why the FDA and CDC behaved as they did), there are two possible explanations: #1. they had non-evil reasons for what they did (see above); #2 they had evil reasons for what they did. 


If they had evil reasons then a possible explanation for their behavior would be that the people in control of the CDC and FDA had some reason for wanting to protect Pfizer and Moderna but not J&J. What might that reason be? One possibility is having a financial stake in Pfizer and/or Moderna but not in J&J. Another possibility--which the authors, Peter and Ginger Breggin, advocate--is that the powers that be intended all along to use Pfizer and Moderna (but not J&J) to reduce the world's population with a lethal vaccination. It is one thing to assert the latter explanation; it is another thing to provide persuasive evidence for it, which the authors do not do.

An article titled, "Surveillance for Adverse Events After COVID-19 mRNA Vaccination" in reporting a study based on data through May 29, 2021 on 10,162 ,227 vaccine-eligible members of 8 participating US health plans, all of whose deaths and other adverse evengs were recorded, found  the incidence of selected serious outcomes was not significantly higher 1 to 21 days postvaccination compared with 22 to 42 days postvaccination for similar individuals after vaccine dose 1 or 2.


The root problem, of course, is that we live in a dictatorship of a billionaire plutocracy that does not actually care about our welfare and will lie when it enables it to increase its power and control over us. The solution is this.
