VAERS COVID Vaccine Injury Reports ‘Unprecedented’ in Quantity and ‘Alarm,’

 

By Marina Zhang

After analyzing the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System reports of injuries following COVID-19 vaccines, Jessica Rose, Ph.D., concluded “human physiology is seemingly at the mercy of whatever’s in these shots, particularly the mRNA shots, but not exclusively.”

Jessica Rose is a Canadian molecular biologist. She was also trained in biostatistics during her Ph.D. and hated it.

But since the vaccine rollouts over two years ago, she has been analyzing statistics every day.

“I really still loathe statistics,” Rose said, yet that hasn’t stopped her from analyzing the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) data, nor the South African VAERS equivalent.

What she has found are unprecedented reports in its quantity and the alarm.

To give an example, childhood dementia is a rare vaccine adverse event. Yet COVID-19 vaccines contributed to 11.2% of all dementia and related adverse events in children aged 6 to 17 on the VAERS database.

In young adults aged 18 to 29, COVID-19 vaccines were related to 50.9% of all dementia and related adverse events.

Unprecedented reports in quantity and alarm

“There are so many things in there [VAERS] that are rare, that are new: cancers that shouldn’t be happening in certain subsets of the population like ALL [acute lymphoblastic leukemia] in adults, male breast cancers, dementia in children … you name it,” Rose told The Epoch Times by phone.

ALL is a cancer condition that can affect all age groups but is the most common in children aged 0 to 14. There have also been reports of neuromyelitis in women in older age groups even though the condition mostly affects younger women.

Looking at VAERS as safety signals for the COVID-19 vaccines alone, Rose said that “human physiology is seemingly at the mercy of whatever’s in these shots, particularly the mRNA shots, but not exclusively.”

Assuming that the vaccine was associated with the onset of these adverse events, Rose said she is completely baffled by what exactly is put into these vaccine vials to contribute to these events.

She gave the example of sudden adult death syndrome, or SADS, which has been emerging and reported in several young athletes.

“I’m trying to wrap my brain around this, what … could you be injecting into people that would cause them to die quickly? It’s very weird to me, very weird. I have no answer to that question. I always think [that it could be] electricity.

“You’re seeing a lot of footage of athletes and healthy young people, just dropping, they don’t even have time to cover their face [often a sign of neural impairment]. Something really switches off, and I can’t figure out what that is.”

Strong evidence of causation

Rose said that there is strong evidence of causation by simply looking at the VAERS data, alone.

But she conceded that “causation is a judgement call.”

“It’s important for everyone to understand that we can provide strong evidence of causal effects, but it’s always a judgement call on our part.”

The common criteria used to evaluate causation is the Bradford Hill criteria: it is a list with 9 to 10 criteria that need to be satisfied, though causations can usually be called when five or six points are fulfilled.

The World Health Organization only lists seven of the Bradford Hill criteria for causality.

The authors of the report stated that the seven criteria are all relevant to assessing causality, though temporality is the most essential.

“One of the most important ones is temporality,” Rose said, this means that the adverse event has to follow the vaccination or whatever is administered, and the shorter the time frame, the stronger the association.

“Think of an acute reaction to a trigger like anaphylaxis,” Rose said, “if somebody gets injected with something, and within 15 minutes, they can’t breathe, or they’re having severe chest pain, or have some kind of cardiac event, there isn’t a human being on the planet who’s not going to say, oh, it’s because of the shot, or at least say it’s probably because of the shot.”

As of Sept. 29, the U.S. VAERS data shows that around 53.6% of all reported adverse events since the COVID-19 vaccine rollouts occurred between day 0 and day 1.

The other nine criteria include strength (association), specificity, consistency, dose-response, plausibility, coherence, experiment, analogy and reversibility.

At a video conference on the World Council for Health, Rose presented her findings of causal evidence for all 10 criteria.

Apart from temporality, another common criteria is strength. This tests the strength of the association between vaccination and adverse events. If a positive association exists, as vaccination increases, adverse events should also increase.

Rose tested this by comparing the number of severe adverse events between the vaccinated and the placebo group in the Moderna trials.

Both groups had around 15,000 people.

In the supplementary appendix, the data showed that 83 people in the vaccinated group had severe adverse events as compared to 31 in the placebo group.

By putting these numbers in a Chi-square test, Rose found that there was a significance in the difference between the two groups.

“When you compare the number of severe adverse events in the drug arm — the mRNA 1273 arm — versus the placebo, you find a statistically significant difference between the two groups.

You can see that the number of severe adverse event reports were actually higher in the drug arm,” Rose said on the video conference.

The P-value measured in a Chi-square test generally needs a number less than 0.05 to consider the association to be significant; the lower the number the greater the significance.

For the Moderna data, the P-value was less than 0.00001, showing a significant result with a strong association.

Reporters Panic at the Thought of Twitter Restoring Free Speech Protections

Twitter Logo

Professor Jonathan Turley

BrianPeckford

“Be afraid, be actually afraid.” Those words from former Politico Magazine editor Garrett M. Graff captures the hyperventilation in the media this week. No it is not Vladimir Putin’s threat of unleashing a nuclear war or the word that our national debt has reached a staggering $31 trillion. No, it is the news that Elon Musk may go forward with the purchase of Twitter and . . . [trigger warning] . . . free speech protections might be restored on the platform. The pearl-clutching of various media and academic figures shows how engrained the censorship culture has become in the United States.

After Musk indicated that he was going forward, the Twitter stock quickly soared. The news that Musk might bring an end to Twitter’s extensive censorship system had previously drawn people back to the platform. However, the media is in full panic mode that the control over speech could be loosened with Musk. Twitter employees also previously panicked at the thought that they might lose some of their control over the speech of others.

NBC News reporter Ben Collins quickly raised the most immediate concern that the sudden ability to speak freely on Twitter could impact the midterm elections: “For those of you asking: Yes, I do think this site can and will change pretty dramatically if Musk gets full control over it. No, there is no immediate replacement. If it gets done early enough, based on the people he’s aligned with, yes, it could actually affect midterms.”

Consider that for a second: the loss of control over political speech could mean a loss of control over the midterm elections.  There is, of course, no concern by Collins that Twitter (and other social media companies) have long been “aligned” with Democrats and the Biden Administration.

NPR editor Neela Banerjee retweeted and echoed his concern about “the broader implications for the rest of us of a Musk takeover of Twitter.” Others joined in on the collective panic that there could be a loss of control over what people say on social media.

BBC journalist Dickens Olewe warned that “Guardrails will be dropped, misinfo & conspiracy theories will thrive. No functional alternatives available, this is it: a complete destruction of the global public square. Been nice y’all.”  In other words, free speech protections will lead to the destruction of “the global public square” by losing control of who can speak or what people can say.

PoliticusUSA head Sarah Reese Jones seemed to move from the desperate to the outright delusional: “Before 2020, Facebook deplatformed progressives, then it came for mainstream media and elevated only radicalized conservatives. Cut to 2022, we know Elon Musk plans to do same with Twitter. We know how damaging it will be.Tech giants pose ongoing threat to western democracy.”

That’s right, social media companies have been favoring conservatives and targeting progressives. That is why a wide array of conservative groups and figures have been banned or suspended. That is why the Hunter Biden laptop story was buried before the election. That is why there are now numerous reports of backchannels with the government in censoring opposing views.

Euronews correspondent Shona Murray tweeted, “The end of Twitter as we know it is nigh.” I certainly hope so.  However, it may be a case of “your Twitter is dead, long live Twitter.” As discussed earlier, the Internet was once the greatest single advance in free speech since the printing press.

The one thing that we agree on is that this could be a historic moment and free speech could be returning to a major platform of social media. The company seemingly wrote off free speech years ago. Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal was asked how Twitter would balance its efforts to combat misinformation with wanting to “protect free speech as a core value” and to respect the First Amendment. He responded dismissively that the company is “not to be bound by the First Amendment” and will regulate content as “reflective of things that we believe lead to a healthier public conversation.” Agrawal said the company would “focus less on thinking about free speech” because “speech is easy on the internet. Most people can speak. Where our role is particularly emphasized is who can be heard.”

I have written about five steps that Musk can take to restore free speech. However, the key is to break a culture of censorship at the company. If Musk moves Twitter out of San Francisco, it may help in that restructuring in replacing staff with those committed to free speech values. However, the key to restoring these values is to adopt what I have called the “first amendment model” for the company.

The question is whether Musk will continue to hold the courage to follow his stated convictions on free speech.  I hope so. If so, the many censorship advocates in the media certainly do have reason to fear that free speech could be return to a major social media company.

Norway to deploy military to protect its oil and gas installations

Norway beefs up security across oil and gas sector

Norway beefs up security across oil and gas sector   –   Copyright  Thomson Reuters 2022
By Reuters

By Nora Buli

OSLO – Norway will deploy its military to protect its oil and gas installations against possible sabotage after several countries said two Russian pipelines to Europe spewing gas into the Baltic had been attacked, the prime minister said on Wednesday.

Gas leaks as a result of suspected sabotage discovered on the Nord Stream pipelines on Tuesday have roiled energy markets and heightened security concerns.

Norway is now Europe’s largest gas supplier and a leading global oil supplier. It has over 90 offshore oil and gas fields, most of which are connected to a network of gas pipelines stretching some 9,000 km (5,590 miles).

“The military will be more visible at Norwegian oil and gas installations,” Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere told a news conference.

Attack would be “handled jointly with our allies,” he said. Norway is a NATO member.

At sea, the Navy would be deployed to protect offshore installations, while on land, police could increase presence at facilities, he said.

NATO and the European Union have stressed the need to protect critical infrastructure and warned of a “robust and united response” should there be more attacks.

On Monday, Norway’s Petroleum Safety Authority had urged greater vigilance over unidentified drones seen flying near Norwegian offshore oil and gas platforms, warning they could pose a risk of accidents or deliberate attacks.

Stoere said on Wednesday the drone sightings took place “mainly in September”, involved drones of “various sizes” and that the activity was “abnormal”.

Still, he reiterated he saw no specific threat against Norway’s offshore oil and gas sector and had not asked for military assistance from its allies.

The United States Declares War on Russia, Germany, the Netherlands and France

Thierry Meyssan

Internationalist 360°

While the international press treats the sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines as a news item, we analyze it as an act of war against Germany and the European Union. Indeed, the three gas supply routes to Western Europe have been cut off simultaneously, while at the same time a new gas pipeline has been opened to Poland. Just as Mikhail Gorbachev saw in the Chernobyl disaster the inevitable break-up of the USSR, so we believe that the sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines marks the beginning of the economic collapse of the Union.

The United States’ fight to maintain its global hegemony has reached its third stage. After the expansion of NATO to the East in violation of Western commitments not to station US weapons in Central Europe, Russia, which cannot defend its huge borders, is under direct threat.

In violation of its World War II commitments, Washington has put “hardcore nationalists” (“Nazis” in Kremlin terminology) in power in Kiev. They banned their Russian-speaking compatriots from speaking their native language, deprived them of public services, and ultimately bombed those in the Donbass. Russia had no choice but to intervene militarily to put an end to their ordeal.

The third round is the authoritarian change of energy supply to Western and Central Europe. On the same day, the Baltic Pipeline came into operation, the two Nord Stream pipelines were shut down, while the maintenance of Turkish Stream was interrupted.

This is the most destructive sabotage in history. An act of war against both Russia (51%) and Germany (30%), co-owners of these huge investments, but also against their partners, the Netherlands (9%) and France (9%). For the moment, none of the victims has reacted puclicly.

[…]

Since the disappearance of the Soviet Union, the United States has developed a map of the world that disrupts international relations, leading it to overthrow governments and wage wars in order to build transportation routes for energy sources. This was the main activity of Vice President Al Gore for eight years, today it is the activity of Special Advisor Amos Hochstein. We remember the war in Transnistria to get hold of a pipeline hub [2], then the war in Kosovo to build a communication route through the Balkans, the « 8th corridor ». Now all the other pieces of the puzzle are coming to light.

It is particularly difficult to understand the evil that has just hit the European Union and will, in all likelihood, cause its economic collapse, because the Union itself has made some of the decisions necessary for its bankruptcy.

Until September 26, 2022, the Union was mainly supplied with gas by Russia. This was delivered either through the Brotherhood pipeline through Ukraine, the Nord Stream pipeline or the Turkisch Stream. The United States, which guarantees the security of the Union, has just cut off these three routes in succession. Of course the Brotherhood pipeline is still functioning, but it can be interrupted at any time by Kiev’s will, Nord Stream has been sabotaged and Turkisch Stream can no longer be maintained because of the sanctions that the Union has taken at the request of the USA.

Until September 26, the economy of the Union was mainly based on the production of German industry. By cutting off Nord Stream, the United States destroyed German industry. In the famous words of Lord Ismay, the first Secretary General of NATO, the aim of the Anglo-Saxons was “to keep the Americans in, the Russians out and the Germans under control”.

[…]

It is true that in July 2021, an agreement was reached whereby Nord Stream 2 would have been replaced by hydrogen produced in Ukraine and transported, from 2024 (the date of the end of the Russian-Ukrainian contract), through the converted Brotherhood pipeline.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz, who was elected in December 2021, has made two serious mistakes in a few months. On December 7, he went to the White House where he tried to resist the United States’ demand that he stop accepting Russian gas. Back home, he chose to maintain Nord Stream and block Nord Stream 2, while seeking renewable sources. He thought, wrongly, that he was balancing the warmongering of US strategic thinking, the needs of his industry and the doctrine of the Greens, members of his government coalition.

The Chancellor had had a close call: during his press conference with the US President, Joe Biden said that his country could destroy Nord Stream 2 and that if Russia invaded the Ukraine, he would do so.

[…]

Six days later, Navy Seals blew up the two gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea, setting Germany back eleven years.

At the same time, the Baltic Pipe pipeline was inaugurated with great fanfare, a few hours after the sabotage, by the Polish president, the Danish prime minister and the Norwegian energy minister. It does not have at all the same capacities as Nord Stream, but it will be enough to change the times. Once the European Union was dominated by German industry using Russian gas, now it will be dominated by Poland using Norwegian gas. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki triumphantly declared at the inauguration ceremony: “The era of Russian gas domination is coming to an end; an era that was marked by blackmail, threats and extortion. »

The act of war committed against Russia, Germany, the Netherlands and France forces us to rethink the events in Ukraine. It is much more important than what has gone before insofar as the United States has attacked its allies. I have explained at length in previous articles what the Straussians were looking for with their provocations in Ukraine. What has just happened shows us why Washington, as a state, supports the Straussian project, and that its “grand strategy” has not changed since the 1950s.

In practice, the European Union will collapse economically, with the exception of Poland and its eleven Central European allies, members of the Three Seas Initiative (Intermarium) [4]. The tide is turning. From now on, Warsaw is running ahead.

The big losers will be Western Europe and Russia, but also Ukraine, which will have been destroyed only to allow this game of massacre.

CDC V-safe Data: Hundreds of Thousands of Americans Sought Medical Care After COVID Vaccination

By Zachalry Stieber

The Epoch Times

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Monday released new data showing some 782,900 people reported seeking medical attention, emergency room care and/or hospitalization following COVID-19 vaccination and another 2.5 million people reported needing to miss school, work or other normal activities.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans sought medical care after getting a COVID-19 vaccine, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data released on Oct. 3.

Some 782,900 people reported seeking medical attention, emergency room care and/or hospitalization following COVID-19 vaccination.

Another 2.5 million people reported needing to miss school, work or other normal activities as a result of a health event after getting a COVID-19 vaccine.

The reports were made to the CDC’s V-safe program, a new vaccine safety monitoring system to which users can report issues through smartphones.

The CDC released the data to the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) after being sued over not producing the data when asked by the nonprofit.

ICAN posted a dashboard summarizing the data.

“It took numerous legal demands, appeals and two lawsuits, and over a year, but the CDC finally capitulated and agreed to a court order requiring them to do what they should have done from day one, release the V-safe data to the public,” Aaron Siri, a lawyer representing ICAN in the case, told The Epoch Times in an email.

About 10 million people utilized V-safe during the period of time the data covers: Dec. 14, 2020, to July 31, 2022. About 231 million Americans received at least one vaccine doses during that time.

The V-safe users reported about 71 million symptoms.

The most commonly reported symptoms were chills (3.5 million), swelling (3.6 million), joint pain (4 million), muscle or body aches (7.8 million), headache (9.7 million), fatigue (12.7 million) and general pain (19.5 million).

About 4.2 million of the symptoms were of severe severity.

Users of V-safe filled in data for about 13,000 infants younger than two, reporting over 33,000 symptoms, including pain, loss of appetite and irritability.

The data produced so far by the CDC does not include free-text responses, according to ICAN. The data covered fields where users checked boxes.

ICAN, founded by film producer Del Bigtree, said that the newly revealed data “reveals shocking information that should have caused the CDC to immediately shut down its COVID-19 vaccine program,” citing the percentage of people who reported needing to get care or missing school, work, or other normal activities, as well as the reported adverse events.

The CDC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

CDC researchers had presented summaries of the V-safe data during meetings with the agency’s vaccine advisory panel but had not released the data for outside researchers to analyze.

CDC researchers have said that V-safe raised no new safety concerns.

ICAN is going to keep pressing to obtain more of the V-safe data.

U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman, an Obama appointee overseeing the litigation, ordered the parties to meet and confer regarding what other data the group will seek following the CDC production.

The parties will then file a joint status report “that proposes any additional deadlines that the parties determine are necessary for the resolution of this matter,” Pitman said.

Doctors Call for Investigation Into FSMB Attacks on Physicians, Ties to Big Pharma

By  Suzanne Burdick, Ph.D.

Two doctors interviewed by The Defender called for an investigation into the Federation of State Medical Boards’ funding and whether ties to Big Pharma are behind the organization’s attacks on practitioners of complementary and alternative medicine and physicians who question the government’s COVID-19 narrative.

“We desperately need a real and deep investigation into this private entity that is pulling strings worldwide,” Garcia told The Defender.

Garcia — a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist who received his M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1986 — is board-certified in psychiatry and neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. He has lived in New Zealand since 2006.

Garcia was a public health consultant psychiatrist until the end of October 2021, when he resigned from his position at the Hutt Valley District Health Board rather than get a COVID-19 vaccine, he said.

His medical license came up for renewal with the Medical Council of New Zealand at that same time.

Garcia reapplied for his license to keep it — but instead of receiving a successful renewal notice from the country’s medical council, Oct. 29, 2021, he received a letter stating that the council had “resolved” to suspend him from practicing because, “Dr. Garcia’s conduct raises one or more questions about the appropriateness of his conduct or the safety of his practice.”

In an interview with The Defender, Garcia said:

“Apparently, the chief psychiatrist of my hospital reported me to the medical council because I made these videos wherein I spoke about natural immunity, the early treatment, how ridiculous it was to try to eliminate a respiratory environment.”

The council found fault with Garcia’s lack of “adherence” to the council’s May 6, 2021, guidance statement, “COVID-19 Vaccine and Your Professional Responsibility,” and his lack of “adherence” to other statements made by the council.

Council Chair Dr. Curtis Walker said there was no place for “anti-vaccine messages” in a medical professional’s practice — or on their social media.

In its letter, the council listed complaints about Garcia’s behavior, including that he wrote an open letter to the prime minister titled, “Another Disastrous National Lockdown,” posted videos about COVID-19 on Voices For Freedom, YouTube and Odysee, and voiced opinions about the handling of COVID-19 on social media that did not align with the council’s statements.

Garcia called the letter “a farce.” He said none of the things he did were “great” or “revolutionary” — in his mind, he was pointing out “basic things” to the public as he witnessed the unfolding of the COVID-19 pandemic and the New Zealand government’s response to it.

Garcia didn’t fight the suspension because he was “sick of their duplicity” and “wanted out.”

“My lawyers were advising me to fight and to sign a so-called ‘voluntary undertaking’ which would have muzzled me,” he said.

If he had signed the voluntary undertaking, Garcia would have agreed to not say anything that ran counter to the council’s statements on COVID-19. The idea was, he said, that doctors who signed a voluntary undertaking were signaling to the council that they were willing to “play by their rules” and that the council, therefore, would “be more lenient with the punishment they dole out” — such as fines or suspension of the doctors’ license.

“I refused,” Garcia said. “I gave a lot of talks at parliament during the protests here in New Zealand, and I spoke freely — unfettered.”

Garcia said he chose to retain his freedom of speech and, working with his lawyers, was able to “fully disengage” from the council through the use of common law, or equity law, to legally sever his professional ties to the council.

“According to the rules and principles of equity, I exercised my equitable right to annul, abrogate and cancel my registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand,” Garcia said.

Soon afterward, Garcia learned about the council’s connection with the International Association of Medical Regulatory Authorities (IAMRA), which is the international arm of the FSMB.

“The Chair-Elect of the IAMRA, Joan Simeon, just happens to be the CEO of the Medical Council of New Zealand, and the Secretary of the IAMRA, Dr. Humayun Chaudhry, just happens to be the President and CEO of the FSMB,” Garcia said.

Doctors worldwide who have “questioned things” have come under attack by their medical boards — and these medical boards “all come under the aegis of the FSMB,” Garcia said.

[…]

FSMB report targets practitioners of alternative medicine

Most doctors have not heard of the FSMB and are unaware of its influence, according to Garcia. He, himself, was unaware until his colleague, Dr. Bruce Dooley, a U.S.-trained medical practitioner who also lives in New Zealand, told him about it.

Dooley recently spoke out publicly about his knowledge of the FSMB.

In an “explosive” Sept. 24 interview with FreeNZ’s Liz Gunn, Dooley explained that the FSMB and IAMRA are private “registered charities with ‘hidden and anonymous’ donors who oversee disciplinary action of licensed medical doctors.”

Dooley — who trained at Jefferson Medical College (now called Sidney Kimmel Medical College) in Philadelphia, has a master’s in immunology and virus research from Villanova University and is a medical practitioner licensed in Hawaii, Florida and New Zealand — said the FSMB and IAMRA particularly target clinicians working beyond the Big Pharma paradigm, whom they label as “fringe” or “quack.”

“Big money must not be allowed to beat integrity and experience,” said a New Zealand Doctors Speaking Out With Science spokesperson in a Sept. 28 press release about Dooley’s interview with Liz Gunn.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, while he was the president of the Florida chapter of the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM), Dooley witnessed first-hand the FSMB’s attack on doctors who practice complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).

ACAM is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating physicians and other healthcare professionals on the safe and effective application of integrative medicine.

At the rate ACAM was growing during the late 1990s, the “world’s medical scene” would have become a “totally different thing” if the FSMB had not attacked integrative doctors 25 years ago, Dooley told The Defender.

During this time, Dooley also investigated the FSMB by attending its annual meetings as a paying conference participant. He noted how during conference sessions, FSMB leaders encouraged doctors to harass their fellow doctors who were offering natural health treatments.

Moreover, Dooley obtained a report produced by the Special Committee on Health Care Fraud (later renamed the Special Committee on Questionable and Deceptive Health Care Practices) showing that the FSMB perceived CAM and doctors who practiced it to be a “risk to public health.”

The FSMB’s governing body in April 1997 accepted the committee’s report as policy.

The report — which is no longer available on the FSMB website but which Dooley shared with The Defender — negatively labeled CAM as “questionable” practices that could constitute “health care fraud.”

The report said:

“In April 1995, Federation President Robert E. Porter, MD, established a special committee on health care fraud. The need for such a committee arose from the proliferation of unconventional and unproven medical practices and promotions in the United States, some of which may be questionable and thereby pose a risk to public health, safety and welfare.”

But according to Dooley, the committee’s motivation was not to ensure public well-being but to ensure that Big Pharma continued to get money. Natural and integrative medicine treatments, such as CAM, were getting in the way of profits for pharmaceutical companies.

Next on Europe’s Doomsday List: Collapse of Cell Phone Networks

The World We Live In

It’s not just heating that could be missing across Europe this winter: cell phones may be the next to go. That’s because if power cuts or energy rationing knocks out parts of the mobile networks across the region, mobile phones could go dark around Europe this winter according to the latest doomsday reporting from Reuters.

While everyone knows by now that Europe’s chances of rationing and power shortages have exploded ever since Moscow suspended gas supplies, in France, the situation is even worse as several nuclear power plants are shutting down for maintenance. And the cherry on top: telecom industry officials told Reuters they fear a severe winter will put Europe’s telecoms infrastructure to the test, forcing companies and governments to try to mitigate the impact (i.e., more bailout demands).

The problem, as four telecoms executives put it, is that currently there are not enough back-up systems in many European countries to handle widespread power cuts, raising the prospect of mobile phone outages. Realizing that in just weeks Europe could be cell phone free, countries including France, Sweden and Germany, are scrambling to ensure communications can continue even if power cuts end up exhausting back-up batteries installed on the thousands of cellular antennas spread across their territory.

Alas, like with everything else in Europe, it’s too little, too late and Europe is facing a truly historic cell phone black out because while Europe has nearly half a million telecom towers, most of them have battery backups that last around 30 minutes to run the mobile antennas. After that they go dark.

One of the alternatives being discussed is pushing Europe back to communist era blackout regimes: In France, a plan put forward by electricity distributor Enedis, includes potential power cuts of up to two hours in a worst case scenario, two sources familiar with the matter said.

The general black-outs would affect only parts of the country on a rotating basis. Essential services such as hospitals, police and government will not be impacted, the sources said. And now, it appears that cell phones are considered essential too: the French Federation of Telecoms (FFT), a lobby group representing Orange, Bouygues Telecomand Altice’s SFR, put the spotlight on Enedis for being unable to exempt antennas from the power cuts.

Enedis said it was able to isolate sections of the network to supply priority customers, such as hospitals, key industrial installations and the military and that it was up to local authorities to add telecoms operators infrastructure to the list of priority customers.

“Maybe we’ll improve our knowledge on the matter by this winter, but it’s not easy to isolate a mobile antenna (from the rest of the network),” said a French finance ministry official with knowledge of the talks.

Telcos in Sweden and Germany have also raised concerns over potential electricity shortages with their governments, several sources familiar with the matter said. Swedish telecom regulator PTS is working with telecom operators and other government agencies to find solutions, it said. That includes talks about what will happen if electricity is rationed. PTS is financing the purchase of transportable fuel stations and mobile base stations that connect to mobile phones to handle longer power outages, a PTS spokesperson said.

The Italian telecoms lobby was even more forceful, and told Reuters it wants the mobile network to be excluded from any power cut or energy saving stoppage and will raise this with Italy’s new government. The power outages increase the probability of electronic components failing if subjected to abrupt interruptions, telecoms lobby chief Massimo Sarmi said in an interview.

Until a solution is reached, to save power, telecom companies are using software to optimise traffic flow, make towers “sleep” when not in use and switch off different spectrum bands, Reuters sources said. The telecom operators are also working with national governments to check if plans are in place to maintain critical services. In Germany, Deutsche Telekom has 33,000 mobile radio towers and its mobile emergency power systems can only support a small number of them at the same time, a company spokesperson said.

The government then canceled any further research into adverse effects

The COVID jabs are an absolute disaster, with injuries and deaths piling up by the day. Yet so-called health authorities, doctors, media, drug makers and many of the jabbed themselves claim there’s nothing to see here. Ever since their release, brave medical professionals have spoken out against them, calling for a more cautious approach.

Now, a peer-reviewed scientific review,1 2 3 published in two parts4 5 in the Journal of Insulin Resistance calls for the immediate suspension of all COVID shots as real-world data show they cause more harm than good.

According to this paper, “Curing the Pandemic of Misinformation on COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines Through Real Evidence-Based Medicine,” authored by cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra:

“In the non-elderly population the ‘number needed to treat’ to prevent a single death runs into the thousands. Re-analysis of randomized controlled trials using the messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) technology suggests a greater risk of serious adverse events from the vaccines than being hospitalized from COVID-19.

COVID Jab Boomerang

In recent months, disability, excess mortality and live birth statistics all point in the same direction. Something horrific started happening around April 2021, and continues to get worse. Something is killing an extraordinary number of people in the prime of their life, who should have decades left to live. Something is causing people to file for permanent disability in numbers we’ve not seen before.

[…]

This year, we’ve also come to realize that Pfizer, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have all repeatedly lied about the safety and effectiveness of the shots, as Pfizer’s own trial data show they’re about as dangerous as they come.

The only reason we now know this is because the FDA was sued and forced by a judge to release the trial data they initially wanted to keep hidden for 75 years. Pfizer data is now being released at a pace of 55,000 pages per month,7 and these batches have proven to be a treasure trove of bad and worse news.

[…]

Data Points to Consider

Malhotra reviews a number of data points in the paper, including:14

  • Pfizer data showing there were four cardiac arrests in the injection group and only one in the placebo group.
  • The misleading use of relative risk reduction (95%) when speaking of effectiveness, rather than absolute risk reduction, which was only 0.84%.
  • 119 people would have to be injected to prevent one positive test, which may or may not be indicative of infection.
  • Pfizer’s trial found no statistically significant reduction in serious illness or COVID mortality from the injection over the course of six months (the length of the trial). Moreover, the risk of serious COVID-19 infection in the placebo group was only 0.04%, showing just how low the risk of serious illness was in the first place, and this despite the fact that the regions chosen for the trial were chosen for their perceived high prevalence of infection.
  • While there were two deaths from COVID in the placebo group and only one COVID death in the injection group, all-cause mortality over a longer period revealed 19 deaths in the injection group and 17 deaths in the placebo group.
  • The pediatric trial used a surrogate measure of antibody levels rather than reduction in symptomatic infection, even though there was no known correlation between antibody levels and protection from infection. The FDA even warns that: “[R]esults from currently authorized SARS-COV-2 antibody tests should not be used to evaluate a person’s level of immunity or protection from COVID-19 at any time, and especially after the person received a COVID-19 vaccination.”

Extrapolating Data to Determine Protection Against Death

Malhotra goes on to describe how he extrapolated data to determine the level of protection these mRNA shots provide against COVID-related death:15

[…]

Depending on your age, several hundreds or thousands of people like you would need to be injected in order to prevent one person from dying from the Delta variant of COVID-19 over a period of around three months.

For the over 80s, this figure is at least 230, but it rises the younger you are, reaching at least 2,600 for people in their 50s, 10,000 for those in their 40s, and 93,000 for those between 18 and 29 years. For omicron, which has been shown to be 30% – 50% less lethal, meaning significantly more people would need to be vaccinated to prevent one death.”

 

What Are the Harms?

Next, Malhotra reviews the hams, noting that one of the most common side effects reported is myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart, especially among young men. He rejects health authorities’ claim that myocarditis is far more prevalent in those who suffer serious COVID infection, stating:16

“Incidence of myocarditis rocketed from spring 2021 when vaccines were rolled out to the younger cohorts having remained within normal levels for the full year prior, despite COVID-19.

[…]

Data from Israel shows myocarditis post-jab is occurring at a rate of 1 in 6,000. Hong Kong data from male children and teens found a rate of 1 in 2,700. Data from the British Yellow Card system shows 1 in 120 people who have received at least one mRNA injection suffer an adverse event “that is beyond mild.”

In Norway, Malhotra notes, the rate of serious adverse events post-jab is 1 in 1,000 after two doses of Pfizer. These are injuries that are life changing for the worse.

In all, nearly 500,000 adverse events had been reported to the Yellow Card system when Malhotra wrote this paper, which he points out is “unprecedented in the modern medical era and equals the total number of reports received in the first 40 years of the Yellow Card reporting system (for all medicines — not just vaccines) up to 2020.”

What VAERS Data Tell Us

The same trend is seen in the U.S., where the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has received more adverse event reports for the COVID jabs than all other vaccines over the last 30 years combined. Malhotra writes:

Safe and Effective: The Covid19 Plandemic 18 Months On

Safe And Effective: A Second Opinion (2022 Oracle Films COVID-19 ...

Safe and Effective: A Second Opnion

Oracle Films (2022

Film Review

This is the best Covid19 documentary I have seen so far. Made in the UK, it focuses on the three main vaccines Britain offers (Pfizer, Moderna and Astra Zeneca). All three have produced historically high rates of death and serious injury. At the time of filming, 2,000 vaccine-related deaths had been reported via the Britain’s Yellow Card system and 13,000 to the US VAERS system.

About a third of the film consists of testimonials from vax injured patients. In addition having their careers and lives destroyed, they also face having the National Health Service dismiss their disabling symptoms (usually related to blood clots, chest pain or severe neurological impairment) as “psychological.” Fortunately many of them have found relief through a variety of alternative medical treatments (eg therapeutic phlebotomy,* oxygen therapy and detoxification with gold particles).

British MP Sir Christopher Chope, who accuses the government of covering up vaccine injuries, has introduced a private member’s bill to increase government compensation for vaccine injury from the current one-time payment of £120,000.

The victims featured in the film have formed support groups to help them cope with their vaccine-related disabilities. Many also find the Covid Adverse Reaction Handbook by vaccine-injured author Caroline Plover extremely helpful.

Safe and Effective also features testimonials from doctors and researchers who call for Covid vaccination to be suspended until the drug companies release the raw data from their clinical trials. One points out Pfizer’s unethical claim of 95% effectiveness (its relative effectiveness) for its. Given its absolute effectiveness of only 0.84%, its human trials showed no reduction in Covid deaths and an increase in deaths from other causes.

Another scientist calls Pfizer out for lying about the spike protein remaining in the injection site, when their own research showed that it circulates throughout the blood stream and organs. Moreover both the FDA and Pfizer knew all along that the mRNA vaccines don’t prevent infection or transmission – as well as causing extremely toxic side effects in cancer treatment studies.

The film ends with an examination of the culture of fear used to convince entire populations to accept three experimental vaccines with unproven safety and effectiveness. The principal driver of this psyops, according to filmmakers, was the Nudge Unit of the UK’s Scientific Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE). According to leaked Nudge Unit documents, the harsh lockdowns forbidding people to leave their homes or see friends and family were essential to ramping up this fear.

Safe and Effective is also extremely critical of the BBC and other media outlets for maligning the unvaccinated as “dangerous antivaxers), as well as blacking out anti-mandate protests involving tens of thousands of Brits.


*Therapeutic phlebotomy or blood-letting is a common treatment for diseases associated with iron build up or improperly formed blood cells (eg hemochromatosis, polycythemia vera, and porphyria)

President Joe Biden personally thanked a Coast Guardsman for saving a 94-year-old woman in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, but the hero expects to be fired within days for rejecting the COVID vaccine.

Aviation Survival Technician Second Class Zach Loesch earned praise in a Friday phone call from the commander in chief for kicking in a wall to save a trapped, wheelchair-bound woman and her husband. The guardsman hoisted the woman in her wheelchair to a waiting helicopter, according to Breitbart, which interviewed him.

“I told him how proud of him I was and thanked him for all the work he and his Coasties are doing to save lives,” Biden said in a press release from the White House that thanked Loesch and Lieutenant Commander Christopher Hooper “for the heroic work that they and their Coast Guard colleagues have performed during search and rescue operations in response to Hurricane Ian.”

Biden said Hooper’s team also saved a one-month-old baby. It was not clear where the rescues occurred.

But the next time Loesch hears from a federal official, it could be to learn his career is over. Loesch told the news outlet he had applied for a religious exemption to avoid taking the COVID vaccine but does not expect it to be honored.0

“If I had asked any of the people I saved yesterday if they wanted to come with me even though I am unvaccinated, every single one of them would have said ‘yes,’” he said.

Loesch, who also saved several pets, said he did not mention his vaccination status or anticipated dismissal in the call with Biden, saying it would not have been appropriate.

“It just sucks that he thanked me yet the vaccine mandate is what’s kicking me out,” he said. “I just love my job and I’m really good at it. It sucks. I feel like this is the job that I was born to do.”

As of Saturday afternoon, the Coast Guard had rescued or aided 442 people and 89 pets in Florida and South Carolina.

More than 2,600 members of the U.S. Coast Guard and thousands more from other military branches remain unvaccinated. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin last year made the COVID vaccine mandatory for all service members, including those at the military academies. Most of the servicemembers who have refused the jab have been given general discharges, meaning they can receive benefits and rejoin the military if they get the vaccine, according to the Military Times.

There are multiple lawsuits challenging the mandate, including two in South Carolina and Texas involving Coast Guard Academy cadets who were kicked out for refusing the vaccine.
