Oh, I'm some sort of conspiracy theorist and the Covid jabs are safe and effective eh?

Ok, let's ignore "effective" for the purpose of this article.

How about "safe"?


This is just through the end of 2021 as that was the end of the survey so it picks up nobody who died from this crap into 2022 and forward.  It is thus nowhere near the full damage, which is still ongoing today and, in fact, this morning I was sent a message from someone who heard of a local teen athlete that had collapsed with a cardiac problem at a sporting event.  They're alive, for now, having been hit with an AED, CPR and ultimately a chopper ride.

The CI is wide because of the listed potential confounders and possible biases which are disclosed and discussed in the study itself.  That leads to a relatively-wide confidence interval but even at the lower boundary this is not only unacceptable it is damn-near proof of fraud because there is no possible way these shots could have gotten through the so-called "trials" without that level of damage being detected and in fact we now know it was detected because the original trials in the fall of 2020 had more deaths in the treatment than the placebo arm which were waved away as statistically meaningless.

Where are your pitchforks and torches America?  Why does any medical provider including any doctor, nurse, hospital, politician, social media "influencer", celebrity, sports figure or whoever who pushed, advocated or mandated this crap, never mind every single employee at the FDA which just came out advocating for annual jabs still have a job, home, a single penny in assets and be able to walk down the street without being covered in rotten tomatoes, never mind being indicted as an accessory before the fact to mass-manslaughter (sorry, the usual eggs are too expensive to waste on any of this filth.)

Note that this study did go through IRB clearance at Michigan State University so yeah, its real.

I don't think you can overstate how bad this is, so I'll just put a couple of snippets here and you can follow the link for the whole deal; Steve certainly deserves to get both the credit and reads for it:

In a study (not yet published) of 177 people in Puerto Rico (97% of whom were vaccinated), cardiac injury was objectively measured in 70% of the people measured (ages 8 to 84). 

Oh, that's not good.  Want worse?  Here's a highly medically supervised group of people, which makes this sort of news much worse:

In the US military, they did a thorough investigation of a large number of soldiers and found markers of cardiac injury in 68% of our soldiers. This was kept under wraps, but I am friends with the doctor who did the study.

That is nasty because the correlation in injury rate is very high.  If there was no common denominator or, in the alternative, one or both of the studies was trash, with two studies where each was performed by different and unrelated researchers you'd expect materially-different outcomes but that's not what you got in two distinct sets of people who had reasonably-similar jab rates.

If you recall my "base case" rate for you're fucked was (and remains) 3%.  I defined "fucked": Seriously disabled or dead.  I am not yet persuaded that this is not a reasonable expectation but it is, at this point, appearing to be a lower boundary rather than a midpoint.  That's not so good.

When the first indications of myocarditis showed up (which were in the original trials) I pointed out that the obvious study to run was to take a thousand people who were interested in getting jabbed (thus no harm potential analysis was required from an ethics board since they're self-selected as intending to take it anyway), pull troponin and d-Dimer tests (both cheap off a blood draw) before they were jabbed and then pull that again a week and two weeks post-event.  If you find statistical elevation you know damn well something very bad is going on.  This would have cost well under a million dollars to do which in the realm of the tens of billions thrown around was chump change and could have trivially been completed and published by the spring of 2021, well before most of the population was involved.  Further, if no signal was present then you'd have a very solid statistical basis in telling people to calm down about their fears, at least with respect to cardiac compromise.

Lots of people can take some objective cardiac damage and not do the Fauci Flop.  A huge percentage of people are sedentary and the majority of the remainder are only modestly or moderately active.  The percentage of 50+ year old Americans who get off their ass and put their heart rate intentionally into Zone 4 or 5 on a regular basis is almost-certainly in the single-digit percentages and it is there where you are most-likely to provoke trouble, as we know happens every year when some people who had no clue they had cardiac trouble try to shovel the driveway and thud right there.  That happens every year.

But two of those groups above are very highly medically supervised.  The military is one of them, at least at the time of induction and, if there's reason to have concern, right now.  That's obvious; you want a fighting force that can, well, actually fight; you're supposed to die by being shot or blown up in the military, not by heart attack while attempting to get into position to shoot the "bad guys."  The latter can get your entire company killed so there's a strong incentive to monitor for those sorts of problems.

The other is professional and, to a somewhat-lesser extent, college-age athletes.  The former is a simple money thing; that person is a large investment and the last thing you want is for them to fall over dead on the field of play, which incidentally happens to be where millions of people will see it.  The latter is a reputational risk if not a monetary one.

The odds of you making it onto an NFL team with any ECG abnormality approach zero.  ECGs are not particularly sensitive to minor damage but anything significant is likely to show up there, and if it does, well, no contract for you.  The same is true for any other professional sports league; individual sports (e.g. golf or tennis) not so much because there you have no league and thus no team that has the reputational hit before them as a risk.

These are objectively nasty numbers and reality is that cardiac damage does not heal; you're stuck with it.  How limiting that winds up being is an open question but what is not an open question at this point is that this is wildly beyond -- by an order of magnitude or more -- the risk of death from the disease itself even in highly-compromised individuals and is two orders of magnitude or more beyond the risk of someone healthy and under 50 dying from an actual viral infection.  I remind you that in the case of infection you take the risk once and we now know that provides quite-durable and solid, but not perfect, immunity.  We never had reason to believe it would be otherwise either because every other respiratory viral infection leads to the same quite-durable and solid, but not perfect, immunity.  Those who wished to argue otherwise had the burden of proof and didn't even bother trying to make said case; they just yelled at you.

Are these (unpublished thus far) studies conclusive?  No, they're not.

I can't vouch for the quality of this work since I can't see the actual studies and data myself.  Without that all I have is an entry on a Substack.

But in no sane world would such a finding not be immediately released and a hard stop be called on whatever might be causing it until and unless it can be conclusively ruled out.  The problem is that the studies were not done before widespread use among the world's population occurred (which was ridiculously STUPID and in violation of every drug-testing protocol) so now if you publish these immediately upon detection you're admitting you screwed twenty percent, a third or even half of the population who took them.

Think about the implications and it ought to be obvious why they're not at all interested in immediate publication of any of this study work.

"May you live in interesting times."

Oh, and...

News: Zelinskyy no longer insists on joining NATO.

The actual news: Russia won.

Now the terms of surrender are under discussion.

I'll make a prediction: They'll be exactly the same terms Russia offered before, with another few additions, and Ukraine will take them.

  • No accession to NATO, period, with sufficient protections to prevent it from being revoked or evaded.  This likely means a bar on military resupply and rebuilding in Ukraine and perhaps changes to the Ukraine legal structure to forbid it.  The West's word means nothing as we promised this 20+ years ago (no eastward expansion) and we lied, repeatedly.

  • The two eastern provinces are confirmed as independent demilitarized states and Crimea remains Russian; this is formally adopted by the Ukraine government.  Demilitarization is to be enforced, and the Nazi (literal, and yes, there are two units in Ukraine that are best-described as same) will be disbanded.  Russia provides security guarantees to the two eastern provinces with the explicit understanding that any further shelling or similar act by Ukraine against them (which has intermittently been going on for eight years) will be met with immediate Russian military retaliation.  In other words if Ukraine fucks with those provinces or Crimea the deal is off and the war is back on.

  • Permanent revocation of permission to place or operate any bioweapon or dual-use facility in the nation.  Nuland confirmed in sworn testimony yesterday we violated the UN Charter and in fact what Russia said they found there was not propaganda it was true.  Said facilities shall be razed under Russian supervision and no attempt will be made to rebuild them irrespective of who sponsors or operates same.

  • A permanent ban on enrichment or other nuclear activity beyond that required for civilian power production, with a specific ban on the presence of any nuclear fuel beyond 5% fissile in the nation and an absolute ban on any reactor operation that short-cycles fuel.  To be enforced under IAEA surveillance.

  • Each nation bears its own costs.  Nobody owes anyone anything for what's happened to this point.  And whatever Russia now has in its possession in terms of documentation and proof (e.g. the Biden 10% for the big guy, the kickbacks to Zelenskyy, the biolab data they already released, etc.) has no protection.  You can bet it will be used when it is most-appropriate in their view too.

That's it.

We'll see whether I'm right.

Don't be even slightly surprised if the "breathless analysts" at CNN and elsewhere continue to insist Russia is losing right up until pen meets paper, which will take a bit of time.

My bet is that as of right here and now it's over.

Oh darn, there goes Veritas again releasing well...... not just a smoking gun, but a rank indictment of both actors abroad (including China) and right here in the United States.


So the "work" (gain of function) was rejected by DARPA but NIH, including Fauci who personally signed off on it, did it anyway.

And he did not just do it in China the work included was in part done here.

We now have a plausible explanation, for example, why agreements related to the spike were executed by at least one US University prior to Covid-19 being "known."  What institutions were involved and how involved were they?  When was the first such agreement executed?

But... it gets better.

We knew the vaccines would not work and were harmful.  We didn't think so, we knew so, and further we knew that someone who had been infected was at least in part protected from said harm by the mechanism infection uses.


I pointed all this out without having what Veritas has now published merely by deduction.

We knew in September of 2020 there was a risk issue with the spike in the circulation that was not in most cases present from natural infection and we knew by December of 2020 it was singularly dangerous.  It is now confirmed that THE GOVERNMENT knew this and proceeded to purchase and deploy the shots anyway.

We also knew that there were other fingers in the pie including American ones before Covid-19 was announced to exist because the transfer agreement with a US University was known to exist more than a year ago and it was executed in 2019 before Covid-19 was claimed to have "emerged" in China.  How can you do something that requires a thing before the second thing happens?  You can't, ergo, the government and the private organizations knew damned well Covid existed before the agreement was signed.

So now have what I've maintained all along is in in official government-documented form:

  • The virus was man-made.  Ecohealth tried to get funding through DARPA and was told to go to Hell because it violated the constraint on gain-of-function research.  Fauci didn't give a fuck and his part of the NIH funded it. BOTH THE UNITED STATES AND CHINA created the virus; it was a joint and intentional project, not rogue actors in Wuhan or Beijing who were responsible.

  • There were people in both China and here in the US (along with presumably other nations) who were involved.  They all knew damn well what happened and all of them have lied for the last 2+ years about it.  That almost-certainly includes both Trump and Biden, incidentally.

  • The governments involved all knew before the shots were released that they were dangerous and would become worthless.  They knew that natural infection did not, in most cases, carry the same risk because the virus never gets into the bloodstream in other than severe and fatal cases but there is no way to avoid that risk with an injection.  We now know this factually from clinical experience (and in fact knew in the early part of 2020) -- viremia does not happen in other than severe and fatal cases and yet you can't give someone an injection without the injected material winding up in the blood in some amount.

  • The governments also knew that Covid-19 itself was not dangerous most of the time to healthy individuals and they knew why.  It was deliberately engineered that way in an attempt, this paper alleges, as an experiment to be inoculated intentionally into bats in an attempt to see whether doing so could cut off future zoonotic events.  Whether the experiment went wrong by accident or intent is not known, but that it was taking place and both our government and China knew about it, along with knowing that it should not be very dangerous to most people is now established as fact.

So why all the histrionics ginned up worldwide continuing to this day?

The experiment went bad and if the public knew why it went bad and who was involved in it the people might reasonably conclude there really is a valid reason to get rid of every single government agency and individual involved.  Unlike "conspiracy theories" that are flat-out crap its not crazy to contemplate doing that either, especially given the death toll.  It was evident within weeks that medically frail people were going to get buttraped by this thing and thus if the government told the truth the pitchforks might well come out since they actually created this fucking monster and it wasn't just China - it was also the United States Government that did it and several institutions within this nation were intimately involved as well.

Oh by the way the same documents also contain evidence that the Government knew both HCQ and Ivermectin were effective against the virus by April of 2020.  How many people died that were denied access to safe drugs that our government had every reason to believe worked?

Still sitting on your ass America?

May I point out that these assholes have killed roughly twice as many people in the United States over the last two years, by their claims, as did both Nazi Germany and Japan in all of WWII and that these are all people and businesses within the United States?

Gonna take another jab or allow the USSC and Biden administration to tell you that you should or indeed must, never mind private employers, when the government factually knows its dangerous and has known for well over a year both that it is the case and why?

Still want to consider Trump a "savior" eh, when he pushed and continues to push these known dangerous jabs?

How many people did they they intentionally let die again?  Twice the toll of WWII with every single death chargeable directly against not a foreign adversary but rather agencies of our own government and publicly-funded "educational" institutions?

Want to argue with all this?

Argue with the source material; its either real or it isn't, and if it is its the best argument I've seen in over 100 years for a national divorce with prejudice.


PS: There are people claiming that what Veritas released is a forgery.  If it is then O'Keefe needs to go to prison forever and break rocks until he dies.  This is the sort of information that can legitimately be the reason for a government to be discarded by its population.  To participate in a forgery is equally as bad as to undertake the actions in the first place.  If someone has evidence that this is indeed false -- let's see it.  While you're at it make sure you account for the verified by FOIA release of this email from Peter Daszak himself....
