Bombshell News About Covid They are Hiding From You

Bombshell News About Covid They are Hiding From You 

One of the BIGGEST news stories in the world broke last week. Did you hear it? If so, I would be shocked because it is actively being suppressed in the mainstream media. Allow me to share with you some quotes, data and video testimonials that will blow your mind. First, here is a quote from Gateway Pundit.

Dr. Mollie James, the courageous COVID whistleblower who has come forward denouncing the Biden vaccine mandates, has shockingly claimed that the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, known as VAERS, the national database that tracks complications and side effects from vaccines, is so widely underused that the real number of COVID vaccine complications is more than 100 times what is currently being reported.

If true, this means that the political decision to force vaccines on the public and on entire industries could come with major, long-term, serious health consequences that are poorly understood because the political agenda is suffocating the scientific collection of data.

“I feel pressured not to use VAERS and many of my colleagues confidently tell me the same,” Dr. James said exclusively to the Gateway Pundit. “They are scared of the politics, of being outed, shamed, and ridiculed. It’s easy for a Doctor to lose their admitting privileges somewhere, and many know if they report something as a vaccine side effect they could lose their job. I just can’t believe what I’m seeing over and over again, and I’ve decided to come forward because this is such a silent crisis of public health, people have to know how bad things are and they need to know the real risks of the COVID vaccines.”

Dr. James points to peer-reviewed studies and surveys that show the VAERS system is off by a factor of 100, and says this matches her own experiences.

Here is a recording of Dr. Jessica Rose, a viral immunologist, presenting at the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee meeting on September 17, 2021. PLEASE LISTEN to it. Its a 2-minute long clip.

And in case you decided not to watch the video, here is a chart that pretty much sums it all up. (VAERS stands for Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. If someone gets sick, has a major health issue or dies then, its reported in the VAERS system.) Below is a chart showing how many people have died from a vaccine event since 1990.

Do you notice the spike in vaccine related deaths beginning in 2020? Do you see any sign of it decreasing based on CDC’s own data? Me either. For more information on deaths related to vaccines click here and/or here. Moving on.

Project Veritas, known for its hidden camera reporting, is releasing a series of videos that will likely be censored by the mainstream media. No doubt. Tune in to hear leading health authorities discuss vaccines on hidden camera and whistle blowers who worked alongside them. Below is the first of a series on the topic.

And here is something else to consider when it comes to vaccines. The public health is more endangered than you might have imagined previously. The very security of our country is in jeopardy. Imagine if a large portion of our military was fired.

Here is a quote from the article cited in the above tweet.

The number involved in the dispute with the Pentagon amounts to as many as a quarter or more of all active duty SEALs, a loss that could impact military readiness since SEAL teams play an outsized role in modern military operations, their advocates told Just the News. Some SEALS were given a deadline this week for the vaccine and have sought a religious exemption.

Sigh. This will be a military crisis, indeed. But I digress to switch from vaccine talk to mask mandates for a moment. All mask mandates are not created equal. Case in point, when San Francisco Mayor violated her own mask mandate rule, she had a perfectly valid reason – Tony, Toni, Tone (her favorite band) was playing live for the first time in over a decade. So, what else does one do in that situation but give into the spirit and boogie – maskless.

Okay, back to the vaccine debate. Whether unintentional or deliberate, there are more and more rebellions in play against vaccines. Take for example, Supermodel Doutzen Kroes

And this instance, which is something you don’t see everyday, a group of construction workers turning on their union boss, right in front of him over being forced to take the jab or be fired. (Apologies for the language.)

This happened in Australia but, I imagine I will hear of things like this in the USA soon enough. Something weird is happening here. I do not propose to have all the answers. I don’t think anyone does. However, I am heartened to see that people are resisting and asking questions. If nothing else, we need more questions about vaccines, masks and (most importantly) how politics is affecting it all. To see a surge of people questioning things, feels good. Skepticism feels good. And in that regard, I’ll just leave this here.

This is news they don’t want you to see!

This is news they don’t want you to see! 

If I told you that vaccines were unnecessary because there was a cheap way to treat it, would you believe me? No? I don’t blame you. I would not believe me either. I am not a doctor. But, would you believe it if the Chairman of a major medical association said it? Check out this quote from Lifesite.

The chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association, Haruo Ozaki, held a press conference Feb. 9, 2021 announcing that the anti-parasite medicine Ivermectin seems to be effective at stopping COVID-19 and publicly recommending that all doctors in Japan immediately begin using Ivermectin to treat COVID.

Ivermectin has been a source of controversy amongst medical professionals regarding the possibility of therapeutic treatments for those diagnosed with COVID-19.

In an article about the suppression of Ivermectin by health authorities, Dr. Joseph Mercola wrote: “While the list of crimes committed by authorities during the COVID-19 pandemic is a long one, perhaps the biggest crime of all is the purposeful suppression of safe and effective treatments.”

Multiple reports and studies have shown evidence that Ivermectin is effective in combating illness associated with COVID-19, and in some countries, like India, it is recommended for use even though the World Health Organization does not recommend it.

Dr. Ozaki cited evidence from African nations that have utilized Ivermectin during the pandemic. He stated: “In Africa, if we compare countries distributing Ivermectin once a year with countries who do not give Ivermectin… they don’t give Ivermectin to prevent COVID but to prevent parasitic disease… if we look at COVID numbers in countries that give Ivermectin, the number of cases is 134.4/100,000 and the number of deaths is 2.2/100,000.”

Here is a video of Dr. Ozaki discussing these stats.

Further down in the article it says this.

Another prominent Japanese physician, Dr. Kazuhiro Nagao, appeared on Japanese television proposing that COVID-19 should be treated as a Class 5 illness as opposed to its current classification as a Class 2. In Japan, illnesses are categorized by a classification system; approaching COVID as a Class 5 illness would mean that it could be treated like a seasonal flu.

Dr. Nagao said he has used Ivermectin as an early treatment for over 500 COVID patients with practically a 100% success rate, and that it should be used nationwide.

If what these doctors are saying is true and their data is veritably true then, why are they continuing to push vaccines? And if the vaccines are necessary, why is the southern wide open and getting worse each day? ABC, CBS and NBC networks are not covering the issue. Perhaps, in a bid to make President Biden look good. Here is a quote from mrcNewsBusters

The crisis along the U.S. southern border is still terrible, and the liberal news media still don’t care. According to the latest statistics from U.S. Customs and Border Security, there were 208,887 encounters along the southern border, only a slight decrease from a revised 213,534 reported in July, a 21-year record.

Yet broadcast evening news coverage in August was virtually nil: Just 6 minutes, 28 seconds on the Big Three during the entire month, including weekends. That’s four minutes, 12 seconds on the NBC Nightly News; two minutes and 16 seconds on the CBS Evening News, and nothing — zero minutes and zero seconds — on ABC’s World News Tonight in August.

This is barely unchanged from July, when those same newscasts spent just four minutes, 20 seconds on the border crisis, despite the worsening numbers. Compared to March 2021, when even the liberal media were treating the influx of illegal immigrants as a crisis, evening news coverage has dropped 94 percent, while the actual number of border encounters has risen by more than 20 percent.

Of the major news networks, FOX News is the only one still on the story. Check out the video in this tweet and be amazed by what the mainstream media does not want you to see.

Wait a sec’, I’m reminded of a [September 15, 2021] Breitbart article – “Democrats Reject Plan to Mandate Coronavirus Vaccines For Immigrants.” Here is a quote…

Last week, Biden ordered that the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) develop a rule requiring all private companies with 100 or more employees to mandate the vaccine or be subjected to weekly coronavirus tests.

Biden also ordered the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to require vaccines for all health care workers who work at facilities receiving federal Medicare or Medicaid funding.

As Breitbart News reported, Biden has seemingly not imposed any such vaccine requirements on border crossers, illegal aliens, legal immigrants, or Afghan refugees who are arriving in the U.S.

During a hearing for the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) proposed an amendment that would require the vaccine for foreign nationals in the U.S. who are seeking to adjust their immigration status to remain in the U.S.

Every Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee opposed the vaccine mandate for immigrants while every Republican supported the measure.

If you can, take politics out of this situation for a moment. Something is very, very wrong here. Politics is trumping common sense (pun intended) and the overall safety of the country. How any sober thinking person can think otherwise is beyond me.

I am sympathetic to the downtrodden and understand the desire to seek a better life. However, there are processes in place to facilitate that. And as I write this, I am sure that there are readers too dedicated to feelings and party affiliation to consider what I am saying objectively. That’s okay, I can respect that. In that vein, I’ll just leave this here.

P.S. CDC Warns Measles is Spreading Among Afghan Refugees (Just, so you know.)

#106 – What’s wrong with giving pornography to children? Are you kidding me?!!

“What’s wrong with giving pornography to children?” is a question that many educators pondered as parents raged against them at school board meetings. While I was sleeping, sex education devolved from explaining biological differences between genders to explicit lessons from the Kama Sutra. (And I’m only slightly exaggerating.) As shocking as this is, apparently, its been going on in our school systems for some time. I’m so glad that Karen Schoen was my guest because she explained to me this trend, its origins and what’s likely to happen next.  Karen Schoen has the foresight and courage to do what so many on the right are afraid to; call the enemy out by name and boldly. Spoiler alert – its communism

Other topics we discussed

  • Federalized police forces coming to your city soon
  • The purpose of the mask
  • The only good thing about communism
  • The psychological projections of the left
  • The eerie similarities between modern America and Nazi, Germany 
  • Government mobsters (badda-boom, badda-bing) 
  • Whole word reading doesn’t work for us. So, why are we doing it? 

And more…
