John Anthony: You Trust Your Government. Don’t You? 4 (1)

by John Anthony

I told my friend of Trudeau’s remark that anyone who did not vote to extend his emergency powers was indicating they “don’t trust the government to make incredibly momentous and important decisions at a very difficult time.”

She laughed. “Maybe that’s because the government created that very difficult time!” she said.

We got a good chuckle because everyone knows here in the US, you can’t trust a word the government says…or do they?

I was stunned to find 25% of parents have already rushed their 5 to 11 year-olds to get fully vaccinated in spite of growing evidence of increased injuries and  teen deaths following the jab.

Why would anyone trust a government that is cotinually wrong?

  • “Experts” estimate without lock downs 14X as many Americans would have died from COVID-19 a completely absurd number given the PCR test the government used was incapable of identifying the SARS-2 virus.
  • By attributing a host of deaths from other causes to COVID-19 the government catastrophized what now appears to be an over-hyped bad flu season. Flu deaths miraculously dropped by 97% during the pandemic and none of the experts could explain it! Must be “social distancing”, “hand washing”, “people stayed home” they rambled on.

It’s not only that our bloated government are incompetent bunglers. Often they intentionally hide information.

  • When the public demanded the FDA release the Pfizer vaccine trial data we were told it would take 75 years. Yet the same agency assures us it took only 108 days to conduct a robust and thorough investigation of all the data before issuing Pfizer’s emergency use authorization.
  • Perhaps the FDA was reluctant to show the data because the initial release showed more than 50,000 serious adverse events and 1223 people died following the vaccine within 90 days of the rollout.
  • Recently it was discovered the CDC is hiding massive amounts of granular data that would enable doctors and patients to make better vaccine decisions. Their excuse is that people are incapable of properly interpreting the information and it might lead to “vaccine hesitancy.”

The bigger question is why anyone would accept at face value what this government says.  And yet, many do.

Is it possible the ubiquitous extent of government disinformation is too big for most Americans to get their arms around? Is it that we are desperate to believe someone to relieve our own anxiety? Or is it that we have become so fractionated we are willing to rationalize complete twaddle to remain in good standing with our socio-political tribe?

Secrecy and dishonesty permeate the government.

  • Though “everyone knows” the 2020 election was not stolen, the administration urged federal judges not to release any damning information about the controversial Dominion voting machines. They only want to hide the information, they say, to “protect election security.”
  • Despite claims videos from January 6th could resolve questions about the incident, the Speaker of the House declared sovereign immunity to prevent the public from suing for their release.
  • Instead of public hearings as in the Nixon case, The September 2019 Trump impeachment was partially conducted in private in the basement of the capital where none of the public could hear the sworn testimony.
  • Underage migrants are quietly flown to U.S. cities under cover of night.

The government is not a reliable source for information. Like an errant spouse caught cheating, they hide, dissemble, and blame.  They may not lie about every issue, but the federal government is so massively dishonest that the only reasonable response is to question all  they say and look for the source material.

Still think you can trust the government?

On July 8, 2015, the House passed HR-5 to reauthorize the states’ education money. The bill contained an astounding section enabling the federal government to gain control of local public education and of your child’s public education if the state accepted the money.

Several of us called Representative Kline’s office who denied  knowing the clause was there but agreed to remove it. Instead, they moved it ahead 25 pages. You can read the section highlighted on pages 564-565 under “Restoration of State Sovereignty Over Public Education and Parental Rights Over the Education of Their Children.”

Governments have always been about power. Over time “serving the people” becomes a means to expand that power. Lies and treachery are the tools that enable moves like “every vote counts” (especially the illegal ones), vaccines for all, and the Great Reset.

Our Founders knew that, and it is why our original documents severely limit federal authority.

They also knew politicians could be clever and persuasive. After all, Trudeau ended his plea for more power by equating totalitarianism with democracy!

Wayne Allyn Root: If the Vaccine is So Great, Why are So Many People Dropping Dead? 4 (1)

by Wayne Allyn Root

Heart Attacks Skyrocket, Children Suffer Heart Problems, Soccer Players Dropping on Fields, ICUs Overwhelmed From Coast to Coast

The Covid vaccines are clearly causing a global health disaster. There are so many warnings from all around the world. I’ll list just a few in this column. But the U.S. media remains silent. They’re as quiet as a church mouse. Why?

Japan’s Health Ministry just announced that the “the Moderna and Pfizer Covid vaccines could cause heart-related side effects in younger males.” Health experts in Japan have witnessed
skyrocketing rates of myocarditis and pericarditis in young men and teenagers. And they’ve seen the same nonstop heart issues with middle aged Japanese and seniors.

All over America, and all over the world, cardiac arrest, heart inflammation, and heart attack deaths are exploding. Young athletes are dropping right on the field; star soccer players in Europe are dropping dead in the middle of games; referees, coaches and even fans in the stands are having cardiac emergencies. It’s something no one has ever seen before. It’s an epidemic.

In America the media is filled with reports of hospital Emergency Wards and ICUs overwhelmed with seriously ill patients. From coast to coast, there are so many sick people lined up, there aren’t enough beds or nurses. Sick patients are lying on gurneys along the hallways. Doctors and medical experts call it a “mystery” why so many Americans are sick. They can’t understand what’s happening.

But I can solve the mystery. These are Covid vaccine injuries overwhelming ERs and ICUs. The very illnesses that are most prevalent in this mysterious health emergency-heart attack deaths, cardiac arrest, strokes, blood clots, multi-organ failure- are all the same Covid vaccine side effects listed in the VAERS report (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System).

What a coincidence.

But it’s not just in the USA. It’s happening everywhere. In the UK, the Evening Standard newspaper reports up to 300,000

British citizens are facing sudden heart related illness and cardiac arrest.

UK medical experts are blaming PPSD- “post-pandemic stress disorder.” 300,000 Brits aren’t dying and crippled from the vaccine. Of course not. They’re all nuts. It’s all in their heads.

These brainwashed Kool aid drinkers can’t see what’s right in front of their faces. Or perhaps doctors, scientists and researchers are too afraid of losing their medical licenses, or losing multi-million-dollar government grants, to speak up.

In the case of the media, it’s all about greed. Big Pharma buys a large proportion of the ads on every TV news network in America. Offend Big Pharma with stories of vaccine deaths and injuries and the media could lose billions of dollars in revenues. Half the newsroom could be fired.

Not to mention stock prices would collapse in these media companies. There goes the retirement accounts of Lester Holt, Don Lemon, Sean Hannity and Rachel Maddow. So the truth is hard to come by.

What’s the truth? All anyone with a shred of credibility, morality and decency has to look at is a few key factors.

First, the FDA has just announced they need 75 years to fully release the Pfizer Covid vaccine data. If I told you to “Trust me, I’m selling the world’s best health tonic, but I can’t disclose any of the test results or ingredients for 75 years, until everyone asking is dead.” Would you trust me? Would you buy what I was selling? Would you inject it into your body?

Second, a federal judge demanded some of that data be released immediately by Pfizer. Just in the first few pages, detailing results from just the first few weeks of vaccines, Pfizer admits in their own data, their vaccine killed 1,223 Americans and produced 42,086 adverse effects. Among the most prominent adverse effects were heart attacks and heart problems.

Third, the VAERS system is reporting 19,886 deaths from the vaccine, and just under one million adverse effects- including tens of thousands of hospitalizations, crippling injuries and permanent disabilities. That’s just in America. The EU numbers are even higher.

Now let me let you in on a terrible secret. My insider healthcare sources are reporting so many victims are filing reports with VAERS, the system is hopelessly overwhelmed and backed up. There may be 20,000 or 40,000 or 60,000 more deaths waiting to be processed into the VAERS system. They tell me the numbers are staggering.

Now you know why hospital ERs and ICUs are overwhelmed with people seriously ill.

So, my question is, shouldn’t someone be investigating this escalating health disaster? Shouldn’t someone in the media be reporting on this unimaginable tragedy? Should politicians be protecting us?

One thing I know- something very bad and very evil is happening.

Jack C. Askins, M.D.: Back to the Future-1905 Mandates 4 (1)

by Jack C. Askins, M.D.

History for most people starts the day they were born”. “If we do not know history, we are doomed to repeat it”. It can be amusing, but more often, frightening to observe our political, medical, and educational elites arrogantly and with unconstrained hubris making decisions for the rest of us that history predicts will not turn out well. These thoughts and quotes were coming to mind as I recently went back in time and reviewed the history of medication and vaccine development leading to FDA approvals. This review was inspired by all the chaos and rancor brought about by vaccine mandates and the pushback by all those who have so much to lose if they choose not to take the mRNA shot. It should not be overlooked that vaccine mandates in earlier times of our history have taken place with an FDA and CDC that seemed to be less political and more vigilant in regards to adverse events from administration of drugs. The threshold for stopping the production and marketing of a vaccine was very low if there was evidence for injury or death.

However, they did not always get it right and the history of safety pronouncements by health authorities, including the FDA and CDC, is not a sterling example of accuracy and truth. Thousands of lives have been lost and many more thousands adversely affected as a result of implicitly trusting the so-called health experts. Think of all the chemicals and substances that have been pronounced safe during the past 100 years: lead pipes, lead in paint, cigarettes, asbestos, glyphosates, heroin, thalidomide. The list goes on. The Yale School of Medicine did a study and found that approximately 30% of drugs approved between 2001 and 2010 were found to have major safety issues that were discovered at a median of 4.2 years after they were made widely available to patients. Problems were more common among drugs that were granted “accelerated approval”.

The CDC has published a report titled Historical Vaccine Safety Concerns and in it mentions contaminated polio vaccine led to 40,000 cases of polio caused by the vaccine. 200 children were left paralyzed and 10 died (“Cutter Incident”, 1955). In the 1970’s, swine flu vaccine had been administered to 40 million people when the mass vaccination was stopped as it became apparent 1 person for every 100,000 vaccinated developed Gillian-Barre Syndrome (GBS). They stopped the mass vaccination for swine flu due to a 0.001% increased risk for GBS. Compare that with the estimated risk of myocarditis and pericarditis in people under age 40 who received either the Moderna, Pfizer, or J&J shots.

In a recent Canadian study, the risk for myocarditis following mRNA shots was between 0.1% and 1.0%, i.e. between 100 and 1000 times higher than the swine flu GBS experience. Myocarditis in a young person is not a benign process! Why is the CDC frantically pushing for young Americans, including children, to be “vaccinated” with these mRNA shots when their risk of dying from the Covid virus is much less than the risk of the shots? Johnson and Johnson now acknowledges their “vaccine” can cause GBS but the drug has not been withdrawn and, in fact, they are promoting their booster.

How The Mandates Began

So this now brings us to the vaccine mandates and how all this got started. Early last year (2020), governor Newsom of California placed gathering restrictions on houses of worship. A lawsuit ensued (South Bay Pentecostal Church v. Newsom) and the U.S. Supreme Court declined to enjoin (prohibit) California’s restrictions on churches in a 5-4 vote. No reasoning was given in the unsigned majority opinion. However, Justice John Roberts wrote a brief opinion that counseled deference (obedience) to the government (Newsom) during this public health crisis. Roberts cited the 1905 smallpox mandate case (Jacobson v. Massachusetts) once during that opinion piece. Soon, the South Bay concurrence (opinion piece) would become a “super-precedent” and in the following 6 months was cited in 140 cases. Now, it is difficult to read or understand the legal basis for vaccine mandates without understanding Jacobson.

The 1905 Supreme Court decision mandating smallpox vaccination (Jacobson v. Massachusetts) is often cited as the precedent to justify a federal mandate requiring Covid-19 vaccination. The ruling in that case was very narrow and stated that Mr. Jacobson could either take the smallpox vaccine or pay a $5.00 fine (equivalent to approximately $140.00 today). One cannot read about vaccine mandates, including the current intrusive Covid mandates, without citation back to the 1905 Supreme Court decision. Jacobson has been referred to and cited numerous times over the past 100 years in cases as diverse as forced saluting of the American flag, limiting religious exemptions, gun control, voting rights, abortion (Roe v. Wade) and restrictions on church gatherings. Jacobson is everywhere!

Perhaps most notorious and objectionable, Jacobson’s reasoning was the basis for Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes’ 1927 decision in Buck v. Bell, which allowed compulsory sterilization of intellectually impaired individuals. The 1905 Jacobson ruling is the only case cited as precedent in that opinion. In Buck v. Bell, Justice Holmes and the Supreme Court upheld Virginia’s eugenics law which mandated involuntary sterilization of cognitive challenged people referred to as “imbeciles”. The vote was 7-2. Holmes equated government-compelled sterilization to government-compelled vaccination. Holmes wrote: “the principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes.” Thus, in this single sentence, Holmes expanded the scope of Jacobson beyond its narrow boundaries to support forcible intrusions onto body autonomy.

The current coercion for mandatory vaccination is equally as disgusting and objectionable as the Holmes ruling was for sterilization. In the current iteration of the legal interpretation of the 1905 Jacobson case, our government and corporate “leaders” have cast the unvaccinated as the “imbeciles” and rather than castration or cutting of Fallopian tubes, they have stipulated the dystopian choice of either loss of employment or involuntarily taking an “accelerated approval” novel drug. (As an aside, rather than financial devastation, some might prefer the Justice Holmes legal remedy.)

Jacobson reasoned that vaccine mandates are a part of the general power of states to protect public health, safety and morals, powers that were only limited (at that time) by a constitutional prohibition against “arbitrary” action. If a governmental enactment bore a “real and substantial” relationship, to use Jacobson’s terms, to the end it sought to achieve, the enactment (of the mandate) would survive review. This current mandate does not and will not achieve the ends sought by government. Those ends, as required by previous vaccines and mandates, are to stop infection and transmission of the virus and achieve herd immunity and ultimately eradication of the disease. That was true for smallpox, measles, mumps, and rubella as the effectiveness of those vaccines approach 100% in reaching those goals. The mRNA “vaccines” have not kept the promises of 90-95% effective made last December. Effectiveness of the Pfizer shots are down to 18-39% after 6 months in various studies. The Pfizer drug was “approved” faster than any prior vaccine and was based on 6 months of data rather than 2 years as was the trial design. There was no formal and customary FDA advisory committee meeting prior to approval and the control group was eliminated by offering the shots to the control group participants.

Furthermore, in the Jacobson court ruling, Justice Harlan recognized that a vaccine mandate could not be enacted based on pretextual motivations and the mandate could not be enforced in an arbitrary fashion against particular persons. In regards to the “pretextual motivations,” Harlan explained the courts would need to disallow the mandate if the effect of the mandate did not protect the public health. It is now widely known as a result of observational data, clinical trials, and admission by the CDC that the mRNA shots do not prevent infection or transmission of the Covid-19 virus. The pretext for the Covid mandate is not fulfilled by the means to achieve the ends. The proponents of these inoculations are only left with advocating for a reduced severity of disease and perhaps less death. But even that is debatable. Israel is 80% “vaccinated” with Pfizer and in September, 2021, they had 130% more cases and 56% more deaths than they had the previous year (2020). Reducing severity of disease without preventing infection or transmission of the virus fits the definition of a treatment and not the historical definition of a vaccine.

Regarding the “arbitrary” fashion of applying the mandate against particular persons, Justice Harlan wrote: the enforcement power of the state cannot be “exercised in particular circumstances and in reference to particular persons in such an arbitrary, unreasonable manner.” Hospital workers are “particular persons” and enforcement of the mandate against them will not protect the public health or the public safety. As the CEO of United Regional Hospital (Wichita Falls, TX) stated in her mandate announcement video, there has been no confirmed case of hospital staff infecting a patient with Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic last year. Paradoxically, the mandate may well result in worsening of public health and public safety due to the loss of well-trained and experienced ER and critical care hospital staff who may resign or be fired due to refusing the mRNA injections. The hospital has already been replacing nurses and other staff with out-of-town “travelers” – expensive replacements, often less experienced and less skilled with no connection to our community. All of this has been imposed upon nursing and other staff shortages that existed prior to the pandemic. Thus, enforcing the mandate against these employees should be considered arbitrary and unreasonable.

But mandating that a person take a vaccine is only half of the issue. The other half is what happens if a person refuses the vaccine and what alternatives are there to the vaccine? Mr. Jacobson had to pay a $5.00 fine. In the case of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination mandates, the CDC allows diagnostic testing for antibodies to the virus (IgG) or proof of prior infection as an alternative to vaccination (CDC.gov, 2013). Prior to the 2020 politicization of the CDC, natural immunity was recognized for the immunity gold standard that it represents. In the Jacobson majority opinion, Justice John Marshal Harlan wrote “so long as there was a reasonable fit” between the measure adopted, and the government’s interest to promote public health, the law was valid. A choice between a coerced unconventional and poorly effective “vaccination” or the loss of one’s life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness does not appear to be a “reasonable fit”. There is no proportionality in the legal remedy being considered. By the standard expressed in the often quoted Jacobson case, the current vaccine mandate would not be held valid.

During the past 100 years, the Jacobson ruling has been tortured and contorted and applied to many diverse legal conflicts, the net result of which is to justify an expanded view of federal and state government power. It has been described as an “escape hatch” from the Constitution. During 2020 and 2021 we have seen and experienced the effect of Jacobson’s assault (and its contemporary amplification by Justice Roberts) upon our Constitutional rights and protections in the realm of lockdowns, mandates, masks, church gatherings and other freedoms of association. With the replacement of Justice Ginsburg with Justice Barrett on the Supreme Court last year, we appear to be returning to a more Constitutional interpretation of the Free Exercise and Due Process laws (Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn v. Cuomo). Federal and state governments, local health departments, corporate and physician leadership will hopefully soon understand that the occasion of a pandemic or other health crisis does not suspend Constitutional rights, freedoms, and liberties.

Jack C. Askins, M.D.: SOMETHING ISN’T RIGHT 4.5 (2)

by Jack C. Askins, M.D.

Something isn’t right in this entire vaccinated vs unvaccinated argument and division taking place in our country. On one side, the proponents of vaccination are labeling the unvaccinated as the cause of the current surge in the Covid case numbers (“a pandemic of the unvaccinated”). Overflowing hospitals and Covid deaths are all the fault of the unvaccinated, so the story goes. President Biden says his “patience is wearing thin”. Vaccines will be mandated and private businesses and government will be the enforcers. Life will be difficult for the unvaccinated. Some have said the unvaxxed should not be treated in hospitals if they become ill.

On the other side, the unvaccinated state vaccines and mandates are about freedom to choose and liberty; “my body, my choice”. They point to an overall Covid survival rate of 99% and cite data regarding complications and side effects from the vaccines. They call attention to how the CDC recently re-defined a vaccine from providing “immunity” to providing “protection”.
They also have concerns about the unique mRNA mechanism of action and how the approval process was incomplete and abbreviated. “If the vaccines work, why aren’t they working?”

For the sake of national unity and promoting confidence in this new technology of the mRNA shots, this should have already been sorted out by the vaccine developers and researchers. Apparently, animal studies were not done and the phase 3 trials were prematurely “completed” last December and the control group offered the mRNA shot. Completion of phase 3 trials was originally scheduled for 2023. The politicians in charge, the CDC, and the NIH have hardened their recommendations into mandates, threats, and penalties which includes loss of employment and financial destruction. Federal regulatory agencies will be turned loose on the unvaxxed.

But all of this confusion and division and rancor and hate could be mostly avoided by truthfully answering one question. One question backed up by 75 years of immunology and virology science and research. The same immunology and virology we all studied in college and medical school and have called upon to diagnose and treat patients in our practices. The same immunology and virology being ignored by the politicians and the armchair doctors at the CDC.

The one important question is “What is more important, vaccine status or immune status?” It is a very simple and obvious question but the fact it is not being asked or explained goes to the issue of honesty and transparency. If a vaccine provides immunity, then the targeted virus will not infect or replicate within a person and thus not be spread to others.

The CDC has admitted the mRNA vaccines do not provide immunity but rather “protection” against serious infection and death. Dr. Fauci has recently stated that in Covid infected patients, nasal viral loads available for transmission to others are similar between the unvaccinated with no prior infection and the vaccinated. Based on this, one could argue the mRNA shots are a “therapy” and not a “vaccine”. This “therapy” may not be all that effective – Israel hospitals have been filled up with sick vaccinated patients and 2/3 of recent Covid deaths in the UK have been in the vaccinated. In both countries, most of the population have been vaccinated and that did not stop the Delta variant surge. Pfizer “effectiveness” is calculated to be down to 39% in the Israeli data and 42% in a Mayo Clinic study.

But here is the salient point about vaccine status vs. immune status: the issue of natural immunity. Natural immunity occurs following an infection with a viral pathogen. Prior to the politics of 2020 and 2021, natural immunity was widely recognized as the most robust and broad immunity one could have. Natural immunity produces mucosal IgA antibodies (stops the infection at the mucosal barrier – nose, mouth, eyes). If the pathogen makes it past the mucosal barrier, internal B cells produce humoral antibodies (IgG and IgM) and cellular immunity is initiated with CD4 and CD8 T cells. The CD4 cells coordinate an immune response and the CD8 T cells are the “killer” cells and attack and destroy cells in our body which have been infected with the virus. Your own cells are destroyed to prevent the virus from using them to make more copies of itself.

And here is the really interesting and important part: after a period of time the B and T cells can transition into a “sentry” mode lasting years to perhaps a lifetime and re-activate if challenged by the virus. Statements that natural immunity is only of a few months duration are ignorant, biased nonsense.

The mRNA shots turn a person’s cells into viral spike protein factories that provoke the immune system to produce humoral antibodies to the specific spike protein encoded by the mRNA. There are no mucosal barrier IgM antibodies produced and the data on CD4 and CD8 T cells is murky at best. One would think all this would have been studied and known in detail prior to unleashing the mRNA injections on an uninformed world. Consequently, we are now having surging Delta variant infections, the appearance of the Mu variant, recommendations for 3rd and 4th and beyond boosters, and thousands of deaths and hundreds of thousands of injuries attributed to the mRNA shots in our CDC VAERS data and the European monitoring data.

Now that we know all of this, why are we now dividing the country and creating social and financial chaos with vaccine mandates? The “unvaccinated” are not a monolithic group but rather comprised of those who were previously infected and now have natural immunity and those who are infection-naive (no prior SARS Cov 2 infection). Efforts at vaccine encouragement (not mandates) should be directed at the infection-naive who are at risk and have co-morbidities. There now is evidence the mRNA shot, when given to Covid survivors with natural immunity, places them at a several times higher risk for vaccine injury and death. Arterial and venous thrombosis and cytokine storms have been observed. To not recognize those with natural immunity and proceed with discrimination and penalties against them does not acknowledge the science and is illogical, unethical, and immoral.

Hospitals are making the argument that taking the mRNA shot is necessary to prevent over-burdening hospitals with Covid patients. The Israel and UK data mentioned above argue against that and those countries may be a prequel to what is beginning to happen in the U.S. However, educating and encouraging at-risk individuals within the community to take the Pfizer or Moderna shots may lessen the severity of illness presenting to the hospital.

In addition, perhaps hospital administrators and medical staffs could provide bold leadership rather than dutifully following the same CDC “guidance”. There are published studies and protocols from experienced academic and frontline physicians who have demonstrated 85% decrease in hospitalizations and death utilizing re-purposed medications per protocol (see Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance; America’s Frontline Doctors). What if it were only a 25-30% decrease in hospitalizations? Would that not be worthwhile (what do we have to lose)? Why not do an informal observational study with these protocols, including informed consent, on perhaps 25% of Covid patients presenting to the hospital? Expand the percentage if the results are favorable. Following CDC “guidance”, hospitals have been on defense for the past 21 months. How has that been working out? Why not go on offense and try a different therapeutic approach which appears to benefit patients? What do we have to lose?

Reasons given for not trying these protocols have included the drugs are not FDA approved for Covid purposes and there is no CDC approval. Drugs are frequently given “off label” if in the best interest of the patient. As far as CDC protocol “approval”, the CDC provides “guidance” but does not have regulatory power to deny physicians acting in the best interest of a sick patient (“right to try”). In regards to “first do no harm”, the antiviral and anti-inflammatory drugs
re-purposed in these protocols have been given millions of times around the world with virtually no significant complications (“what do we have to lose?”).

Hospitals around the country are also mandating mRNA shots for all their employees and staff.
The uninformed and misinformed might assume that is for the protection of the patients. However, there is no evidence health care workers have been a significant source for Covid spread within a hospital. The CEO at a local hospital recently stated there has been no confirmed case of staff infecting a patient during this pandemic. Temperature assessment and early self-quarantine seems to have been effective.

Also, a high percentage of health care workers are Covid-recovered and have natural immunity. A study by the Cleveland Clinic this year revealed that in approximately 1350 health care workers within the Cleveland Clinic system who had prior infection and no vaccination, there was not a single incidence of SARS-CoV-2 re-infection in a 10 month follow-up. The CDC recently analyzed blood from blood banks and calculated that 83% of the country have antibodies to the Covid virus from either the mRNA shots or from natural immunity. Those with only natural immunity comprised approximately 25% of the total in this study. What happened to the concept of herd immunity?

Mandating mRNA injections in hospital employees and staff will obviously not reduce the number of sick patients presenting to a hospital for diagnosis and treatment. Some within the hospital think it is a symbolic and manipulative gesture aimed at the community and will influence the unvaxxed to obtain the mRNA shot. However, polls have suggested this will be counter-productive as both vaxxed and unvaxxed people in communities realize this mandate will not reduce the surge of Covid patients presenting to a hospital. It will, however, reduce the availability of staff to care for them.

The past 21 months have been a difficult and destructive assault on most of our society but politicians have exploited it for their political benefit. To not recognize that is naive. Most would agree this virus and the global response to it is very fluid and dynamic. What was thought to be true 6 months ago is not true now, and 6 months (or 3 or 1) months from now, it will probably evolve into something else. In the midst of all this dynamic change, at a very fundamental level it does not seem ethical or moral to mandate this drug be injected into our bodies. That precedent and the effects of the drug will be forever; the virus probably will not.

Jack C. Askins, M.D.


Note:
1. This paper is not written as an anti-vaccine statement and should not be taken as such. High-risk people who have not been previously infected with the Covid virus should be encouraged (not mandated) to take the mRNA shot as it may reduce the severity of an infection and help avoid death, if infected. Mandates and not recognizing the immune status of those previously infected are issues contributing to the mistrust and division within our country. A very large portion of this nation feels like they have been enrolled into a vast experiment involving masks, vaccines, and mandates without their informed consent. Medical science is strongest and innovation occurs when diversity of opinion and criticism are encouraged. That is why Morbidity & Mortality conferences and peer review of journal articles are the historical norm within the practice of medicine. Critical analysis and alternative thought and opinion are now being persecuted and silenced. No matter how one feels about vaccines and mandates and alternative treatments, the silencing and persecution of critical thought and opinion will strangle medical innovation and further divide our country.

2. This was written in a simplistic and conversational style as one would have when speaking with a patient or a poorly informed physician colleague. Considerable technical detail was excluded and references were not formally listed as this obviously is not intended for submission to a journal. The Israel and UK data are easily found with an on-line search and the original papers and articles are available. The same is true of the Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic studies and statements by Dr. Fauci and Rochelle Walensky and the CDC.

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.”
