Bad to the Bone
No Cup of Kindness From Some NYT Commenters

A Glimpse of America

American_flagLast, week, the Wall Street Journal ran an opinion piece by Joseph A. Ladapo and Harvey A. Risch. It was a breath of fresh air in this stale, overtly political summer.  I spent some time on Twitter yesterday, and I seriously needed a shower afterward. The anger. The vitriole. The pitchforks and torches raised high to bludgeon and burn the unvaccinated was astounding. Even from people who should know better from bitter experience with their own children (read into that what you will.) Choice? Never! Rational thought! No way! Risk analysis? You are a traitor to America! You are a moron. You are a DANGER. Patriotism as a concept has been rode hard and put away wet. From Bluegressives I see this anger. From Redservatives I see less name calling and outrage, but pure dismissiveness of those who genuinely are concerned for their health.  I no longer say Republican or Democrat, because I think both parties have been eviscerated, splintered, co-opted and shattered by extremes.  Folks are digging in their heels against one another. Watch the Olympics - I noticed that many of the stories of the athletes mentioned their mental health difficulties. One athlete has  had such bad OCD since age 12  that she had to take one hour showers.  An ad mentioned "respecting athlete's mental health," which is a fine thing and yes we should. But that's an ad benefit for a product?  What about respecting the huge anxiety many of of us who have lived vaccine injury suffer every day? Lordy, no, we do not count. The Covid vaccines carry risk.  Covid carries risk. Are we so stupid now that we can not make decisions for ourselves?  A whole lot of this nation thinks the answer is "YES!" Freedom means not having to make personal decisions, just do what you're forced or told. I don't get it.

So I really was surprised that the authors asked a simple question. 
Are Covid Vaccines Riskier Than Advertised? There are concerning trends on blood clots and low platelets, not that the authorities will tell you.

One remarkable aspect of the Covid-19 pandemic has been how often unpopular scientific ideas, from the lab-leak theory to the efficacy of masks, were initially dismissed, even ridiculed, only to resurface later in mainstream thinking. Differences of opinion have sometimes been rooted in disagreement over the underlying science. But the more common motivation has been political.

Another reversal in thinking may be imminent. Some scientists have raised concerns that the safety risks of Covid-19 vaccines have been underestimated. But the politics of vaccination has relegated their concerns to the outskirts of scientific thinking—for now.

Historically, the safety of medications—including vaccines—is often not fully understood until they are deployed in large populations. Examples include rofecoxib (Vioxx), a pain reliever that increased the risk of heart attack and stroke; antidepressants that appeared to increase suicide attempts among young adults; and an influenza vaccine used in the 2009-10 swine flu epidemic that was suspected of causing febrile convulsions and narcolepsy in children. Evidence from the real world is valuable, as clinical trials often enroll patients who aren’t representative of the general population. We learn more about drug safety from real-world evidence and can adjust clinical recommendations to balance risk and benefits.

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, or Vaers, which is administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration, is a database that allows Americans to document adverse events that happen after receiving a vaccine. The FDA and CDC state that the database isn’t designed to determine whether the events were caused by a vaccine. This is true. But the data can nonetheless be evaluated, accounting for its strengths and weaknesses, and that is what the CDC and FDA say they do.

The Vaers data for Covid-19 vaccines show an interesting pattern. Among the 310 million Covid-19 vaccines given, several adverse events are reported at high rates in the days immediately after vaccination, and then fall precipitously afterward. Some of these adverse events might have occurred anyway. The pattern may be partly attributable to the tendency to report more events that happen soon after vaccination.

The database can’t say what would have happened in the absence of vaccination. Nonetheless, the large clustering of certain adverse events immediately after vaccination is concerning, and the silence around these potential signals of harm reflects the politics surrounding Covid-19 vaccines. Stigmatizing such concerns is bad for scientific integrity and could harm patients.

Four serious adverse events follow this arc, according to data taken directly from Vaers: low platelets (thrombocytopenia); noninfectious myocarditis, or heart inflammation, especially for those under 30; deep-vein thrombosis; and death. Vaers records 321 cases of myocarditis within five days of receiving a vaccination, falling to almost zero by 10 days. Prior research has shown that only a fraction of adverse events are reported, so the true number of cases is almost certainly higher. This tendency of underreporting is consistent with our clinical experience.

Analyses to confirm or dismiss these findings should be performed using large data sets of health-insurance companies and healthcare organizations. The CDC and FDA are surely aware of these data patterns, yet neither agency has acknowledged the trend.

The implication is that the risks of a Covid-19 vaccine may outweigh the benefits for certain low-risk populations, such as children, young adults and people who have recovered from Covid-19. This is especially true in regions with low levels of community spread, since the likelihood of illness depends on exposure risk.

And while you would never know it from listening to public-health officials, not a single published study has demonstrated that patients with a prior infection benefit from Covid-19 vaccination. That this isn’t readily acknowledged by the CDC or Anthony Fauci is an indication of how deeply entangled pandemic politics is in science.

There are, however, signs of life for scientific honesty. In May, the Norwegian Medicines Agency reviewed case files for the first 100 reported deaths of nursing-home residents who received the Pfizer vaccine. The agency concluded that the vaccine “likely” contributed to the deaths of 10 of these residents through side effects such as fever and diarrhea, and “possibly” contributed to the deaths of an additional 26. But this type of honesty is rare. And it is rare for any vaccine to be linked to deaths, so this unusual development for mRNA vaccines merits further investigation.

The battle to recover scientific honesty will be an uphill one in the U.S. Anti-Trump politics in the spring of 2020 mushroomed into social-media censorship. News reporting often lacked intellectual curiosity about the appropriateness of public-health guidelines—or why a vocal minority of scientists strongly disagreed with prevailing opinions. Scientists have advocated for or against Covid-19 therapies while having financial relationships with product manufacturers and their foundation benefactors.

Public-health authorities are making a mistake and risking the public’s trust by not being forthcoming about the possibility of harm from certain vaccine side effects. There will be lasting consequences from mingling political partisanship and science during the management of a public-health crisis.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT....

‘Stop the Shot… The Rest of the Story’ Conference

"LifeSite hosted a townhall conference with The Truth For Health Foundation, “Stop the Shot… The Rest of the Story.” This online meeting will feature Dr. Peter McCullough, Attorney Thomas Renz, Dr. Michael Yeadon, Sister Deidre Byrne, Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet, Dr. Jose Trasancos, and other prominent physicians, scientists, attorneys, and religious leaders who will be discussing vital information related to the COVID jab, clinical trials, and more.

"Breaking information will be shared by the lead attorney in U.S. suit against the Biden regime’s HHS regarding VAERS, adverse events, under-reporting deaths, and injuries. This presentation will also include an update on the CDC Whistleblower affidavit, which indicates more than 45,000 actual deaths have taken place following the COVID shot, versus the VAERS reports of only 11,000.
Previously undisclosed data from both Pharma-clinical trials and subsequent additional studies on the COVID jab related to specific, serious, immediate, and long-term impacts on fertility in both men and women.
Updates on international medical studies regarding actual vaccine immunity versus what has been reported to the public by the media.
Breaking information regarding international lawsuits and theological implications related to the latest COVID news around the world."

Thank you excellent article ,the Health and Safety Risk Assessment standards are imploding the shoogly scaffolding around the Pharmaceutical Ponzi selling scheme and similar Pyrimid selling is crumbling in reality! Vioxx A template for forensic flunkies!

NICE - National Institute for Health and Care Excellence UK
Covid -19 Rapid Guideline .
Vaccine -induced immune thrombocytopenia and thrombosis [VITT]
NICE Guideline [ NG 200]
Published 29 July 2021

From https//www.pulsetoday.co.uk
Pulse Today ;GPNews ,articles,views and learning
The guideline states -- VITT is a disorder that only occurs in the context of vaccination ,which people have to protect and that of the population .
People with VITT may therfore have have lost confidence in vaccination which is a notable psychological challenge to be addressed .
This guideline has not looked at the safety of covid-19 vaccines that is not NICE'S remit and the data from the MHRA shows the benefits of Covid vaccines far outweigh the risks .
Signs and Symptoms of VITT
Severe unusual headache ,worse lying down /bending over,blurred vision,nausea vomiting ,difficulty with speech,weakness, drowsieness or seizures .
Oh What! sounds like cardiovascular/cerebro vascular side effect adverse reaction vaccine injury/
ie Heart attacks and strokes and what type of stroke exactly clots or haemorhage? as different strokes = different treatment plans for shure!
The Global Public health experts Policy and Procedure Manual is heading straight for the garbage bin . "Their Goose is cooked ,and not fit for the public health and safety risk assessment menu"

Tim Lundeen By now we know it it is all criminal

But don't most criminals that are caught fain some kind of ignorance in the whole matter of being caught. Liars too, and pretty sick and tired of liars.

Oh Officer Harris Dunn of the Capitol Police this morning as he began his testimony of political heapareepoliticallies; ask us all to take a few minutes of silence to remember his good friend; Brian Sicknick, who succumb to his injuries he received on Jan the sixth. ""

If he was such a good friend then he should know that his good friend died of multiple strokes that came out of the blue -- unless it was from a covid dance .

"Do you kinda get the sense that the PRR function [a vaccine-safety indicator] is designed to hide signals of unsafe vaccines, not to identify them?
"Maybe this is a matter of incompetence?
"Hanlon's razor: never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
"There is no doubt that governments are jam packed with incompetent people in important roles (often scattered around a handful of brilliant ones who unfortunately lend their credibility). Perhaps that is why somebody like Richard Feynman was called in to help figure out what went wrong with the Challenger shuttle disaster. So, I'll take this time to note that the person who called me last night has also been emailing the CDC for weeks, either with no response or an obtuse brush off. Maybe I'll have the time to write about that in another article.

"However, Hanlon's razor is one of the most oversubscribed principles of human interaction. A firm belief in its truth is an invitation for con artistry. Wherever there are concentrations of money or power, we should expect to find the fully manifest game theory of hawks and doves.

"At some point, when the potential for conflicts of interest are high and the point of failure is fundamental to the task of those doing the job, incompetence should no longer be differentiated from criminal intent. Mathematicians and statisticians worthy of the title do not miss the kind of scale invariance or mean-reversion we see embedded in the PRR---particularly not when working in a dedicated group on a serious problem. There is a pride among geeks in identifying subtle mathematical or logical flaws in a system, and this is not subtle at all. Given that even psychologists have a need to pay attention to scale invariance, this is not an easily excused mistake. In fact, a computational check of the PRR function against past data likely would have clued in a middling programmer without the fundamental mathematical training."

Gosh, all these Olympic athletes have mental health problems? OCD, like our autism kids? Gee, I wonder why.

"People who should know better...." What I'm finding out is how little people know who sit in judgement of people who are far better informed, who take the obligation of "informed consent" at its minimum--to be informed, seriously. When you ask people, "what do you know," and they know less, but they are so willing, self-righteous to condemn, to punish those that know so much more?????

Yes it is disturbing. And I have no idea how this will all shake out in the end. Who is the screen writer for all this shit? You have some esplaining to do.

'There will be lasting consequences from mingling political partisanship and science during the management of a public-health crisis."

If history is our guide .. there will be no lasting consequences during the mis-management of a public health crisis .. consider .. AUTISM'S ever increasing numbers diagnosed .. from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 34 in New Jersey … STILL NO CAUSE FOR ALARM AS GENERATION AFTER GENERATION SUFFER LASTING CONSEQUENCES AS A RESULT.
