Jack C. Askins, M.D.: SO HOW IS YOUR CONFIRMATION BIAS? 4 (1)

by Jack C. Askins, M.D.

Confirmation bias. We all have it, you know. It is part of the human condition. You can deny it but then that would be confirming your bias. And bias isn’t always a bad thing. Absence of bias, if it were to mean absence of opinion, would reveal a colorless and uninteresting human being. Opinions, and our dedication to them, contribute to our diversity, intellect, wit, and appeal. It is when bias in the form of opinion is used by those in positions of leadership and authority to silence alternative opinion (and bias), that it becomes tyranny and fascism when administered. The Founding Fathers of this country had that figured out and it is why we have freedom of speech in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.


This is the definition of confirmation bias that applies to the world of medicine and science:

 In psychology and cognitive science, confirmation bias (or confirmatory bias) is a tendency to search for or interpret   information in a way that confirms one’s preconceptions, leading to statistical errors.

Confirmation bias is a type of cognitive bias and represents an error of inductive inference toward confirmation of the hypothesis under study.

Confirmation bias is a phenomenon wherein decision makers have been shown to actively seek out and assign more weight to evidence that confirms their hypothesis, and ignore or underweigh evidence that could disconfirm their hypothesis. As such, it can be thought of as a form of selection bias in collecting evidence.


In the course of doing literature research on the Covid virus and the pandemic, it became apparent that over the past 18 months, and particularly during 2021, confirmation bias was alive and well, stronger than ever, and being exploited by political leadership and the media to drive their agenda and change our culture. We were no longer having objective discussions on the medical science involving diagnosis and treatments of this virus. Diversity of opinion was no longer being tolerated.

When language is controlled by those with a bias to be confirmed, it can be used to silence and bully those with an opposing opinion. Words and concepts and their historical meanings can be gradually changed to represent hate, ignorance, or “misinformation”.

Dr. Mark McDonald is a prominent California psychiatrist who recently had the following quote that deals with the use of language to confirm the bias of those favoring mandated vaccines and to denigrate those who favor medical and body autonomy: “Pandemic of the unvaccinated” has emerged as an expression of propaganda meant to provoke anger toward those who exercise medical choice in deferring or refusing the experimental vaccine. It is meant to isolate, shame, and humiliate anyone who will not agree to surrender medical autonomy to the state. It intentionally divides Americans against one another while simultaneously distracting attention from the medical reality of poor vaccine efficacy and vaccine harm. The expression is devoid of scientific meaning but full of coercive psychological power. It must be challenged.

People have concerns about the mRNA shots and cite as the basis for their concerns it’s new technology never before used to create a vaccine, or the abbreviated approval process and lack of long term complications and outcome data, or the frantic coercion being used to promote and mandate its acceptance. There has been no acknowledgement of the people with natural immunity which is known to be better than vaccine immunity. Instead of a respectful dialogue that provides answers to their concerns, the mRNA hesitant are denigrated and turned into dangerous pariahs out to infect and harm the vaccinated. The word “antivaxxers” is now being used to refer to people who have these concerns.

So what is driving all of this mandate madness as it comes from hospital administrators and their physician advisors? It probably is not concern for public health as it has been shown that injecting hospital workers with these experimental drugs will not reduce Covid in the community. Nor has there been data to suggest hospital staff infecting patients. Follow the money is always a high percentage bet. Apparently the Feds pay more for a Covid diagnosis. We have all heard about the patient who was said to have died from Covid 19 when it was actually the gunshot wound to the head that caused his demise. Set those cycle thresholds high enough on the PCR machines and most anyone can be Covid positive. Follow the money.

Now, the Feds have gone full unconstitutional and tied hospital Medicare reimbursement to compliance with the “vaccine” mandates. If this stands, what will be mandated next? Abortions required to be done in all hospital facilities? How about gender re-assignment surgery on kids? Perhaps without parental consent. Medicare is due to run out of money soon. Maybe they will mandate no pacemakers or hip replacements, or dialysis after age 70. There is now a report of a woman in Colorado who has been denied consideration for a renal transplant because she is not “vaccinated” Use your imagination; there are no limits anymore. If they can require all citizens to be enrolled in an experimental drug trial without informed consent, they can do anything they want. This isn’t about public health.

But what of the physicians? Physicians do not appear to be profiting from this pandemic and the mRNA shots unless they bought stock in Pfizer or Moderna.

No, uninformed and misinformed probably explains most of the physician collaborators. There may be a few CDC zealots who believe everything that Dr. Fauci says as gospel, perhaps not realizing the CDC, the NIH, and perhaps the FDA have been compromised and politicized. Name one thing the CDC has been right about the past 21 months. As for the FDA, they abandoned all historical benchmarks and norms to “approve” this drug. Now that “leadership” physicians (local and national) have made their decisions, they seem not to be bothered by facts and new data discrediting this “vaccine” fiasco. That’s called confirmation bias.

For the hospital administrators and physicians who may read this piece, here is a short psychological test to determine how your confirmation bias is doing. If you become angry upon reading this, and ignore or discount its messages, you can be assured that deep part of your brain from which arise anger, hubris, arrogance, and confirmation bias is intact and functioning full strength. If however, you are motivated to do more reading and not just that which supports your current positions on vaccines and mandates, then you have taken a big step towards controlling and overcoming these base emotions. In either case, show some spine and do something positive for your fellow hospital workers, your colleagues, your community, the hospital, freedom and liberty and stop this evil and misguided mandate.


“Dr. Jack Askins is a cardiologist in Wichita Falls, TX. This is the first article in a series of four he has authored that we intend to publish here. His reasoned scientific voice needs to be heard during these times as the COVID-19 Vaccines have become politicized through government mandates. We are encouraged by his boldness and expertise that he brings to the subject.” 

John Kachelman, Jr.: Meet the Flimflam Man behind the COVID-19 Farce. 4 (1)

by John Kachelman, Jr.

The Madness Continues Extra…Just when you thought Big Brother could not invade and control your personal life any more comes this news from AP Press, “Bacon may disappear in California as pig rules take effect”
“At the beginning of next year, California will begin enforcing an animal welfare proposition approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2018 that requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens and veal calves…only 4% of hog operations now comply with the new rules. Unless the courts intervene or the state temporarily allows non-compliant meat to be sold in the state, California will lose almost all of its pork supply.”

Meet the Flimflam Man behind the COVID-19 Farce…

Dishonesty is a vile and reprehensible Satanic trait; the antithesis of truth; and, enslaves with tyranny.
This despicable trait is damned in Scripture:
Proverbs 20:23, “Differing weights are an abomination to the Lord, and a false scale is not good.”
Amos 8:5, condemns those who use dishonesty to “to cheat with dishonest scales.”

The Flimflam artist hones his talents to an amazing skill and persuades his victim to believe in and purchase something that is worthless—it has no real value; all is a gilded show with deceptive vocabulary. The target is studied, his weaknesses are identified, and then he is manipulated to do the Flimflam man’s objectives!

Do not think the flimflam is restricted only to cunning individuals. Nations have twisted the truth for the benefit of their reigning Powers. Such is illustrated by the World Empire Babylon in Daniel 5:27, “you have been weighed on the scales and found deficient.” Dishonesty is visible even in worldly governments!

Consider the flagrant and blatant dishonesty that is now being exposed about COVID-19. From the beginning it was announced by many that the testing data was skewed, the laboratory protocols were suspect, and trying to get any specifics about this viral pandemic is as successful as nailing Jell-O to the wall! This dishonesty is bilking millions of citizens out of personal freedoms, future health security, earned incomes, and personal rights.
But the voices of fearmongering alarms were long, loud and strong. These prevailed and forced shutdowns were recorded worldwide.

NOW data is coming forward exposing the flimflam of COVID-19 fearmongering.

Recently I sent out an article about the CDC’s confession that the swab test was unreliable (this CDC report is referenced below). The CDC’s confessions only confused the confused data that has been bombarding the public for over a year. So, this test will be discontinued 31 December 2021. A question unanswered is “WHY WAIT?”

Mike Adams published a shocking article on 30 July 2021 titled, CDC, FDA Faked ‘COVID-19’ Testing Protocol by Using Human Cells Mixed With Common Cold Virus Fragments
Here are excerpts from it and I have added emphasis to the sections I find alarming. I know it is a long read for some but the material presented is valuable as each considers how to respond to the hyped-hysteria regarding vaccinations.

“In a shocking revelation first reported by Dan Dicks of Press for Truth (Canada), an FDA document admits that the CDC and FDA conspired to fabricate a COVID-19-19 testing protocol using human cells combined with common cold virus fragments because they had no physical samples of the SARS-CoV-2 ‘COVID-19’ virus available.

“Without physical reference material to use for calibration and confirmation, the test has zero scientific basis in physical reality. And all the PCR analysis based on this protocol is utterly fraudulent, flagging people as “positive” for COVID-19 when they merely possess tiny quantities of RNA fragments from other coronavirus strains circulating in their blood.

“The FDA document, available from the FDA.gov website, is entitled, “CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel.” The document astonishingly admits:
“Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV were available for CDC use at the time the test was developed and this study conducted, assays designed for detection of the 2019-nCoV RNA were tested with characterized stocks of in vitro transcribed full length RNA (N gene; GenBank accession: MN908947.2) of known titer (RNA copies/µL) spiked into a diluent consisting of a suspension of human A549 cells and viral transport medium (VTM) to mimic clinical specimen.”

“In other words, they had no COVID-19 virus from which to develop and calibrate the test, so they mixed up a cocktail of human cells and RNA fragments from a common cold virus, then called it ‘COVID-19.’ The GenBank sequence referred to in this paragraph is simply a digital library definition that’s labeled “COVID-19” but has no supporting reference materials in physical reality either.

“That’s because no doctor or researcher has isolated ‘COVID-19’ from any infected, symptomatic patient. As a result, no laboratory instruments can be calibrated against actual COVID-19, and the tests simply rely on digital libraries pushed out by the CDC and WHO, using ‘COVID-19’ as the label.

“The PCR tests are then instructed to look for these genetic sequences obtained from the fabricated digital libraries, meaning the entire scheme is junk science circular logic with no basis in physical reality.

“I am the founder and owner of an analytical laboratory that routinely conducts quantitative analysis of food contaminants, producing high-precision analysis results for pesticides, herbicides and heavy metals. In every case where we conduct lab analysis, we calibrate the instruments against known physical samples called ‘external standards’ or ‘certified reference materials.’ (CRM). Any lab can purchase CRMs for mercury, arsenic, glyphosate and even salmonella. For example, this link at Biosisto lists CRMs for various salmonella strains. Labs can purchase those reference materials and use them to calibrate their instruments, making sure their analysis is traced back to physical, real-world samples of a purified material. These CRMs, in turn, must be NIST-traceable in order to confirm their origin and authenticity. All CRMs are therefore labeled with lot numbers and expiration dates.

“While labs can purchase reference materials for microbes, heavy metals, pesticides, etc. — all physical materials — I have searched far and wide and have not been able to locate any certified reference materials for SARS-CoV-2 or even a weakened, non-viable version of it. As far as I can tell, there appear to be no physical specimens of isolated COVID-19 viruses available for instrument calibrations and testing protocol quality control.

“To be clear, I’m not saying that viruses don’t exist, and it’s quite clear that the Wuhan Institute of Virology colluded with Fauci, Daszak, the NIH, Baric and others to develop a weaponized spike protein. But the spike protein is not a virus by itself. It’s simply a toxic nanoparticle that can be synthesized in quantity and then either dumped on cities or added to vaccines and injected into people via immunization protocols.

“If COVID-19-19” is a real virus that can be isolated, why are there apparently no physical reference materials to calibrate laboratory instruments for COVID-19 detection? And why were no such materials used in the development of the FDA-approved, CDC-endorsed PCR testing protocols?

“CDC pulls its own fraudulent COVID-19 PCR testing protocol, implying it cannot differentiate between COVID-19 and influenza

“What adds to the mystery in all this is the fact that the CDC just issued a “laboratory alert,” announcing their intention to withdraw the faulty PCR testing protocol by the end of this year. As part of their announcement, they implied that the current PCR test — the same one the FDA mentioned above, which was developed without any physical COVID-19 samples for calibration — cannot tell the difference between influenza and COVID-19.
“Influenza cases nearly disappeared in 2020 as influenza was re-labeled “COVID-19” due to the faulty testing.
“Percentage influenza positivity decreased by 64% (p = 0.001) and estimated daily number of influenza cases decreased by 76% (p = 0.002) in epidemiologic weeks 5–9 of 2020 compared with the preceding years,” reported the CDC in 2020.

“In essence, the medical establishment simply took all the people who would normally be diagnosed with colds and the flu, and shifted them into the “COVID-19” category in order to push a COVID-19 mass hysteria narrative that would drive people into vaccines. The vaccines, then, were formulated with spike protein toxic nanoparticles to cause the “delta” panic wave, which is largely occurring among vaccinated individuals.

“From here, the plandemic scam proceeds like clockwork: People get sick from the vaccines, so more vaccine boosters are demanded, which perpetuates the illness. Rinse and repeat. It never ends until the perpetrators are arrested and people wise up to the scam.

“The CDC has just published a science document that confirms the entire scam. Click here to view the PDF on our servers.
“It’s entitled, ‘Outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 Infections, Including COVID-19-19 Vaccine Breakthrough Infections, Associated with Large Public Gatherings — Barnstable County, Massachusetts, July 2021’ and it shockingly admits that 74% of infections occurred in fully vaccinated (double dose) people…vaccination coverage among eligible Massachusetts residents was 69%. Approximately three quarters (346; 74%) of cases occurred in fully vaccinated persons (those who had completed a 2-dose course of mRNA vaccine [Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna] or had received a single dose of Janssen [Johnson & Johnson] 14 days before exposure).

“See, the vaccine is the pandemic. The vaccine is spreading the spike protein, and the fake PCR tests provide the fuel to keep the mass hysteria going.”
