According to the editorial, by Sept. 2 more than 30,000 cases of menstrual disorders and unexpected vaginal bleeding after vaccination had been reported in the UK to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency’s (MHRA) yellow card surveillance scheme for adverse drug reactions.
On Aug. 16, the MHRA published an update saying “the rigorous evaluation completed to date” did not support a link between changes to menstrual periods and related symptoms and CCP virus vaccines.
The document says the number of reports of menstrual disorders and vaginal bleeding were low in relation to both the number of people who have received CCP virus vaccines to date and how common menstrual disorders are generally.
It also said the reported disorders were mostly transient in nature and that there had been no evidence to suggest that the vaccines would affect fertility and the ability to have children.
Male corroborated MHRA’s statement, saying most reported post-vaccine menstrual disorders only occurred for a single cycle before they returned to normal.
She also added that both unintended pregnancy rates and pregnancy rates in assisted reproduction clinics have been similar in vaccinated and unvaccinated patients in clinical trials.
However, Male argues that further investigation will be needed to eliminate uncertainties.
The yellow card scheme relies on voluntary reporting of suspected side effects or medical device incidents to be reported by health professionals and the public, including patients, carers, and parents.
Male said the nature of the system’s information collection method makes it difficult to draw firm conclusions.
The reproductive immunology lecturer suggested that she doesn’t believe the vaccines affect women’s fertility based on the evidence available.
Three CCP virus vaccines are currently available in the UK. Two of them—Pfizer-BioNTech and Spikevax (developed by Moderna)—are mRNA vaccines, while the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab is an adenovirus vectored vaccine.
The menstrual changing events occurred across all three vaccines. Male said it suggests that if there is a connection between the vaccines and menstrual disorders, it’s likely to be a result of the immune response to vaccination rather than a specific vaccine component.
According to Male, menstrual cycles can be affected by immune activation in response to various stimuli, such as other vaccines and viral infections, including CCP virus infection.
In one study of menstruating women, around a quarter of those infected with the CCP virus experienced menstrual disruption, the editorial said.
Male believes an investigation may also help understand the mechanism behind the menstrual changes following vaccinations, and it will also help clear any unnecessary fears and mistrust towards the vaccines.
“Although reported changes to the menstrual cycle after vaccination are short-lived, robust research into this possible adverse reaction remains critical to the overall success of the vaccination programme,” she wrote.
Male called on the UK’s health authorities to follow the example of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, which made available $1.67 million (£1.2 million) to “encourage this important research” on Aug. 30.
Dr. Jo Mountfield, vice president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said the college wants to “reassure women that any changes generally revert back to normal after one or two cycles,” but it also supports calls for more research into the possible association.
The MHRA said period problems can be caused by stressful life events and added that changes to the menstrual cycle have also been reported after people have had the virus or are suffering from so-called long-COVID.
Dr. Alison Cave, chief safety officer at the MHRA, said they are “closely monitoring reports of suspected menstrual disorders” through the “robust” yellow card scheme.
“As outlined in our vaccine safety surveillance strategy, the yellow card scheme is one of several sources of evidence we use when evaluating the safety of vaccines,” she said.
“Based on our current rigorous safety monitoring, women can be reassured that the current evidence does not show a link with any changes in women’s periods or symptoms, nor is there any evidence to suggest that COVID-19 vaccines will affect fertility. This is also the conclusion of our expert scientific advisory committee, the Commission on Human Medicines,” Cave said in a statement.
“Whilst uncomfortable or distressing, period problems are extremely common and stressful life events can disrupt women’s periods. Changes to the menstrual cycle have also been reported following infection with COVID-19 and in women affected by long-COVID,” she added.
“Our advice remains that the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks for most people.”
MANHATTAN, New York—Thousands gathered near Central Park in Manhattan on Saturday to express their discontent with the vaccine mandates and passport requirements implemented on the city by Mayor Bill de Blasio this month.
New York City started enforcing a COVID-19 vaccine mandate Monday, with de Blasio warning that “there’ll be consequences” for those who do not follow the rules.
The mandate requires establishments to put up certain signage and verify customers’ COVID-19 vaccine proof, such as vaccination cards issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), New York City vaccination records, other official immunization records, the NYC COVID Safe App, or the Excelsior Pass.
Participants first gathered at Columbus Circle and then marched to Times Square, led by one of the speakers, Jo Rose.
“If you took the vaccine, I love you. This not against you, we are pro-freedom,” she announced to passersby.
Participants chanted “my body, my choice,” “no vaccine passports,” and “freedom over fear!”
At the rally in Times Square, people spoke about standing up for their rights and against tyranny.
Among the diverse group of speakers, the themes of unity and freedom were often brought up.
One speaker said, “The only thing that gathers us all together, different groups, different types, is our stance against tyranny. When they try to take away our freedoms, we stand.”
Another said, “Don’t use this as a political front. I don’t care about Biden. I don’t care about Trump. I don’t care if you’re a Republican. I don’t care if you’re a Democrat. I don’t care if you’re black, yellow, white, purple. I don’t care if you’re Christian, Muslim, gay, straight. I don’t care. This is a human issue and it should be bringing us all together.”
The crowd cheered in response.
Artist Tessa Lena also spoke at the rally: “It’s not about even those injections, it’s about establishing a system for artificial immunity.” She spoke about how “we are people of love, we are going to win with love.”
Mayoral candidate Bill Pepitone also spoke at the rally: “We have a president and a so-called mayor who are telling us we can’t go to work, we can’t feed our family. Our police officers can’t protect us, unless they comply. Our firefighters can’t protect us, unless they comply … our health care workers, they can’t save lives unless they comply.” He then led the crowd to chant, “We will not comply.”
Speaker Kevin Jenkins said, “This is about the very essence of what God gave us, and that is the power to be free. … It’s about the power of love that will allow us to win this battle.”
Jenkins compared the vaccine segregation to racial segregation in the 1960s. “Sixty years ago, I couldn’t walk in a restaurant because they said I was unclean … Now they’re telling us we are unclean again, not just black people, not Latino people, but all of us. We have to unify beyond race and love each other as humans.”
He urged people to only patronize restaurants that support freedom.
“When they tell you no to your humanity, you tell them no to their business.”
Mary Josephine Generoso, manager of the Pasticceria Rocco bakery in Brooklyn, said she would not be discriminating against customers by requiring proof of vaccination, defying the mandate implemented by the mayor. The business has placed signs announcing its policy to customers.
“I heard de Blasio speak, and immediately we created that sign that said ‘we do not discriminate.’ There is not a bone in my body that will allow me to discriminate against anybody for any reason any day of the year.”
She called de Blasio “the greatest unifier of New York City, because he’s brought us all together for one cause.”
“I’m taking this stance against the vaccine mandate because obviously, it’s completely discriminatory. It’s forcing me to segregate customers based on a vaccine,” she told The Epoch Times.
She also said she is being forced by the mayor to get vaccinated, even though she has natural immunity. “I am not employed by the city of New York, I don’t get a paycheck from the city of New York, I don’t get a pension from the city of New York, so I don’t understand how Mayor de Blasio is able to tell me that I have to be vaccinated in order to work in my own establishment.”

The enemy made a huge miscalculation 21 months ago when it attacked We The People with a bioweapon.
The enemy made an even bigger mistake 10 months ago when it attacked the Constitution of We The People with a cyberattack on our election process.
The enemy badly underestimated the power of We The People.
The enemy thought We The People would quit.
We will never quit.
The enemy thought We The People would grow weaker.
We are growing stronger.
The enemy thought We The People had been brainwashed to give up on our trust in God.
We will never give up on God and our faith is growing stronger each day.
A fiery revival is underway in America.
There may be a Communist behind every tree but there is a God-fearing Patriot behind every blade of grass.
The enemy picked a fight with the wrong people on the wrong soil.
This is AMERICA.
We The People will shed our blood, our sweat, our tears, and pay any price to remain FREE.
We will fight until we take OUR COUNTRY back.
The enemy will NEVER win a war on our land.
Almighty God is on our side so we know that we are on the victory side.
As White House officials responded to Nicki Minaj’s claims on Twitter that the COVID-19 vaccine led to an adverse health problem, the rap star later said she is being targeted for asking questions about the shot and compared the phenomenon to the Chinese regime’s censorship.
Minaj, who has 22 million followers on Twitter alone, wrote on Monday that her “cousin in Trinidad” wouldn’t take the vaccine because “his friend got it [and] became impotent.” She also shared a claim from a man who said he developed a blood clot in his eye after getting vaccinated.
On Wednesday, Biden administration COVID-19 adviser Anthony Fauci responded to her assertion and told CNN that “there’s no evidence that it happens, nor is there any mechanistic reason to imagine that it would happen.” He added that Minaj “should be thinking twice” about making such claims online.
For her claims, Minaj, who added that she isn’t vaccinated, said she received significant criticism and suggested she’s now the target of a “cancel culture” mob for her tweets, asserting in an Instagram video that the phenomenon is similar to the Chinese Communist Party’s restrictions on visitors and citizens.
“I remember going to China and they were telling us you know, you cannot speak out against, you know, the people in power, there, etc,” Minaj said in an Instagram Live video. “Don’t y’all see that we are living now in that time where people will turn their back on you … but people will isolate you if you simply speak and ask a question,” she continued.
Before that, the rap star said the White House invited her to speak with Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy and Fauci about the vaccine.
“The White House has invited me & I think it’s a step in the right direction. Yes, I’m going. I’ll be dressed in all pink like Legally Blonde so they know I mean business. I’ll ask questions on behalf of the ppl who have been made fun of for simply being human,” Minaj wrote in a Twitter post.
But later, in the Instagram video, Minaj said that when she made the post about the White House invitation, an unnamed official called her back and appeared angry when she spoke about it publicly.
Minaj also said she was barred from using her Twitter account on Wednesday, although the social media platform said her tweets didn’t violate its terms and conditions.
A spokesperson for Twitter told BuzzFeed that “Twitter did not take any enforcement action in the account.”
The Epoch Times has contacted the White House for comment.

The establishment is now panicking, they need a way to figure out how to stop people from moving from one system to another. They will try everything and anything, watch for [FF] with cryptos. The people are now shifting, slowly but surely, what we are witnessing is the destruction of the old economic system and the birth of a new one. Trump gave a speech at CPAC. The clock has been activated, it’s time to restart everything. Trump dropped messages during the speech, letting the people know that they are in control. Specific targets are locked on and the people will begin to find out the truth. This is just the beginning. Trump is showing the people the truth, they are now understanding that the [DS] policies do not benefit the people. Trump is now placing everything into position.
The [CB] is now panicking over other currencies. They are now in the process of trying to control the entire situation, this will fail. The WEF put up a video and the backlash was so fierce they had to delete. The patriots are now pushing the [CB] into the corner and the people see it all. The [DS]/MSM think they are in control the situation, Trump has now put the spotlight on the [DS] players, he can see the board clearly. Trump is in the process of rearranging the board. Trump and the patriots are in control, people are now seeing the truth and they are watching the [DS] push their agenda. MP & DS send out comms to let all patriots know they are in control.
First the [CB]/Ds destroyed businesses across the country, now after destroying the businesses they are going to tax those individuals to build those same businesses back up. The pandemic plan was to hurt the little guy and prepare them for the great reset, but something happened along the way, crypto. The [DS]/MSM are fell right into the trap the patriots set. Everything they wanted them to do has almost been accomplished. It is now time to look at the real crimes, it’s time to unleash the Durham on these individuals. Most likely when they try to get rid of Durham, Durham will unleash it all.
The push is on to put pressure on the [CB]. People will now start to wake up to the fact that the fiat currency is worthless. The people are now being exposed to a new currency. The [CB]s are in trouble, the Great Reset is in trouble. The [CB] in Myanmar has been taken over, this is just the beginning. The patriots are now pushing the plan forward, the [DS]/MSM have lost, the people see it all and many more are waking up. The global power structure is being dismantled. The day of reckoning is upon us. Trump let everyone know that in the months ahead he has something to share. The DOD put a pic of GW crossing the Delaware, message received. Dan Scavino sends another message.
This story was published in partnership with The 19th, a nonprofit, nonpartisan newsroom reporting on gender, politics and policy.
The Lincoln Project’s launch in late 2019 was designed to make a splash.
“We are Republicans, and we want Trump defeated,” four of its co-founders wrote in The New York Times. The organization would go on to raise nearly $90 million for its stated mission of defeating Donald Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box in 2020.
They created attention-grabbing ads that provoked responses from the former president. High-profile liberals such as DreamWorks co-founder David Geffen wrote them six-figure checks. Hundreds of small-dollar donations poured in. Leaders and staff decamped to a preelection headquarters in the ski haven of Park City, Utah, where their effort was chronicled by Hollywood filmmakers. Their plans after the election included leveraging the massive following they gained to build a media empire. They recently launched the platform LPTV.
The organization faces a rapidlyescalatingcontroversy over allegations that another of its co-founders, John Weaver, sexually harassed more than a dozen young men, including some working for the project, and over what other members of senior management knew about the claims and when they knew it.
The accusations have roiled the organization, and as its current and former employees and contractors began coming forward to discuss them, they described a workplace where women in key positions were sidelined and where sexist and homophobic language was used by those in leadership posts.
In reporting a story over the past several weeks about the Lincoln Project’s management, culture, finances and handling of the Weaver allegations, The 19th interviewed nearly two dozen people currently or formerly associated with the group or familiar with its operations.
Nearly all of them said they feared speaking publicly about their experiences with the Lincoln Project and its remaining co-founders. Many cited leaders’ tendency to “go nuclear,” as several put it, when faced with internal dynamics that could undermine the public image they cultivated with their liberal fans.
The interviews depict an organization that grew quickly, with little planning at its inception, then began to spiral out of control as its founders quarreled over the organization’s direction, finances, tactics and even who would own the donor data that the project eventually would amass. Some of the co-founders had an informal management agreement that excluded the others, without their knowledge. Several had private firms to which the Lincoln Project channeled tens of millions of dollars that were then not subject to disclosure, while others were paid relatively modest amounts directly or nothing at all. There were clashes over ego and resentments over podcasts and television contracts.
The Lincoln Project’s founders were some of the highest-profile players in Republican politics before they rejected Trump and became apostates within their own party. There was George Conway, a high-profile conservative lawyer who is married to Kellyanne Conway, who was a top adviser to Trump. Weaver worked on Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaigns, as did Galen and Schmidt. Mike Madrid is a strategist specializing in Latino voting trends. Jennifer Horn is a former GOP chair in New Hampshire. Wilson worked on Rudy Giuliani’s mayoral and Senate campaigns. Ron Steslow started his own consulting firm after working at the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Conway was the first to leave in August, citing family obligations. Weaver took medical leave around the same time.
A three-person board – Galen, Madrid and Steslow – was created without input from some of the other co-founders. Eventually, disputes over that board, and its scope, led to bitter infighting that involved individual co-founders lawyering up and threatening one another with “oppo” research, Washington-speak for the type of negative information amassed by a political campaign or organization to use against a rival.
In late 2020, Conway stepped in to help mediate what was quickly becoming a civil war within the organization. Madrid and Steslow departed in December after signing nondisclosure agreements and receiving separation packages that those familiar with the negotiations describe as lucrative.
Group’s super PAC status makes tracking spending difficult
On Dec. 21, the Lincoln Project paid Madrid’s firm, Grassroots Lab, two round-sum payments of $1.1 million and $300,000. On the same date, it paid Steslow’s firm, TUSK Digital, $900,000. All of the payments were described as for “political strategy consulting” on campaign finance filings.
The Lincoln Project was organized as a super PAC, meaning it could raise and spend unlimited sums of money but had to disclose only basic details about where the money was going. The firms that some of the co-founders brought with them to the Lincoln Project’s work became a source of internal frustration as more than half of the nearly $90 million raised by the project flowed to firms controlled by its various founders. Once it was there, there was usually no way to track how they spent or kept it.
As of late January, Galen’s firm, Summit Strategic Communications, had received roughly $27.5 million from the Lincoln Project, with the bulk of that going to “independent expenditures” such as television or internet advertisements and nearly $7 million to consulting. Steslow’s firm, TUSK, received $22.4 million, with $7.1 million for consulting.
Schmidt’s firm, SES Strategies, received $1.5 million for consulting, but he told the Chicago Tribune he returned it. Madrid’s Grassroots Lab received nearly $2.2 million for consulting services. The Lincoln Project paid Horn directly in amounts of $5,000 or $10,000 a month, campaign finance filings show. In the fall, she began receiving additional payments from LPTV, but in all, her annual compensation was about $150,000, sources familiar with the situation said.
There is no way to determine what portion of the consulting fees went directly to the co-founders as their compensation for Lincoln Project work or whether they paid one another, according to campaign finance experts. Super PACs are structured that way by design.
Super PACs are widely used by both political parties, but the percentage of the Lincoln Project’s money that went to vendors and firms connected to its co-founders raised eyebrows given the group’s criticism of Trump-affiliated political groups that similarly directed money to the organizations of allies as a “criminal enterprise.”
Another point of internal financial contention was the donor information that Lincoln Project amassed with ads that spread across social media. The specifics over who or which entity would own the data was not negotiated in advance, sources said, and the data’s market value grew as more people gave.
A frequent quip from Schmidt overheard by multiple people was that the Lincoln Project was his vehicle to achieve “generational wealth.”
Sexist, homophobic language cited in a toxic workplace
As senior management squabbled over how to divide the pieces of the project’s financial pie, dissatisfaction was growing within the organization’s more junior ranks, which were made up of largely young and liberal staffers who said they had different standards from some of the group’s leaders, citing Schmidt and Wilson specifically. There was language used in both the Lincoln Project’s ads and within its workplace about gender and sexuality that made many of them uncomfortable, the dozens of interviews revealed.
Young men were “wizards” while young women were “girls.” Political rivals were referred to using crude sexual and homophobic slurs. By the time the staff convened in Park City, the situation had become so “toxic,” according to more than a dozen accounts, that at least two co-founders, neither of whom remain at the project, had tried to intervene to improve working conditions.
Staff had also complained that some of the project’s ads, specifically some related to Ivanka Trump, were sexist.
There was dissatisfaction among the ranks when Ben Howe, billed as the wunderkind behind some of the Lincoln Project’s earliest ads, was brought back by Wilson. Howe had been fired after The 19th reported that in a series of tweets, he had used offensive slang for female anatomy to insult political rivals.
Lincoln Project women were treated differently from men
There were few women in Lincoln Project’s leadership, and those who were there were treated differently from the men, multiple people said. Horn was left out of meetings and not consulted about key decisions or public statements. At points, others within the organization had to persuade her not to quit.
On Thursday night, the Lincoln Project tweeted out private direct messages on the social media platform between Horn, who left the organization the previous week, and this reporter.
Horn had just provided a lengthy statement to The New York Times on the specifics of her departure, citing the remaining co-founders’ handling of the allegations against Weaver and saying that when she raised her concerns, she was “yelled at, demeaned and lied to.”
The Lincoln Project had the week before released a statement about Horn’s departure – it had not done so for Madrid or Steslow – that said the organization had parted ways with Horn over a compensation dispute after she asked for a “signing bonus” of $250,000 to remain with the group for its post-election work, along with a $40,000-a-month consulting contract.
Horn, who was in the middle of negotiating a post-election employment contract, has not denied the specifics. She said her departure was not about compensation but a request to address sexual harassment that was “rejected outright.”
Some of Horn’s allies with ties to the Lincoln Project reached out to The 19th at that time, wanting to discuss the group’s treatment of her specifically and women generally.
The screenshots shared Thursday night by the Lincoln Project, one of which was reshared by Wilson from his personal account, were of Horn’s inbox on the social media platform. She said she had neither provided the images to the Lincoln Project nor had she given anyone permission to access her account. The tweets were deleted after Conway said publicly that the move “looks on its face to be a violation of federal law” and urged their removal.
The Lincoln Project’s sharing of Horn’s private messages came shortly after The 19th had reached out to the group’s spokesperson, Kurt Bardella, as well as Wilson, Schmidt and Galen, with a list of more than 20 specifics about the group’s management, finances and handling of the Weaver allegations, drawn from publicly available government records and the interviews it intended to publish in a forthcoming story.
Bardella said Friday that he was no longer with the Lincoln Project, effective immediately. Wilson, Schmidt and Galen did not directly respond to any of the points laid out by The 19th.
Spotlight shines on allegations of Weaver harassing young men
New attention has been drawn to the Lincoln Project in the wake of allegations about Weaver.
Sources familiar with internal communications said that in June, multiple members of the Lincoln Project’s senior leadership team were told in conversations and in writing about allegations that Weaver had sexually harassed young men, including some who were working for the organization.
By August, nearly all of the co-founders still with the project were aware and a media plan was being crafted after the group’s employees and contractors were contacted by a news outlet working on a story about the allegations. By the time staff gathered in Park City for the buildup to the election, the accusations were an open secret even among junior staff, sources said.
The first allegations were published in January, first in the American Conservative and later in other publications, including The New York Times. Schmidt told The Times that senior management was not aware until that month. Schmidt’s timeline conflicts with that offered by more than a dozen sources who worked within and as contractors for the group at various times.
In the past few days, multiple news outlets have published articles laying out more extensive accusations against Weaver, as well as allegations that they were known earlier than previously reported. Schmidt has run point on responding to the reporting.
He told The Associated Press on Wednesday that no Lincoln Project employee, intern or contractor ever made an allegation so serious it would have triggered an investigation by an independent investigator. He provided the same statement to New York Magazine on Thursday. By Thursday night, the Lincoln Project announced it would hire a “best-in-class outside professional” to investigate the matter.
Calls to release staffers from nondisclosure agreements
Who knew how much and when, and who can say what, is now dominating the back-and-forth between those who remain at the Lincoln Project and those who have left.
When Ryan Girdusky first wrote about the allegations for the American Conservative magazine, he told The 19th it was a “constant problem of finding someone willing to come out and make allegations, go on the record, and within 48 hours, out of fear for their future, would drop out of the story. It happened for months on end.”
Conway and Horn, who said she was not aware of severity of the allegations against Weaver until The New York Times published its story in January, have called for the Lincoln Project’s current and former staff to be released from their nondisclosure agreements.
The group’s remaining leaders said Thursday night that anyone who wants to be released from their nondisclosure agreements to discuss allegations against Weaver should reach out to them directly. Six individuals told The New York Times that they did not feel comfortable doing so, citing Horn’s treatment and Schmidt’s statements about when he first learned of the allegations.
Steslow’s lawyer sent the Lincoln Project a letter late Thursday asking that he be released from the nondisclosure agreement he signed at the time of his departure, a spokesperson said.
“Any time there is an imbalance of power in a relationship, the weaker person becomes vulnerable to abuse. The stronger, more influential person has an obligation to conduct themselves with honor and integrity in order to preserve the dignity and autonomy of all involved,” Horn said in the statement Thursday night.
“Victims deserve to be – and must be – heard,” she added.
At least 181 people have died in the US according to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), after taking experimental vaccines meant to combat a 99.4% to 99.8% survival rate virus, the death toll for which a team of researchers in one state found may be inflated by as much as 40%.
In Miami, a healthy 56-year-old doctor died after a strange reaction to the Pfizer COVID vaccine, involving blood blisters. Although Pfizer has made only politic statements, the doctor’s wife is certain his death was caused by the vaccine.
In Portugal a 41-year-old health worker died after taking the Pfizer vaccine. The father of Sonia Acevedo told a Portuguese daily last week:
“She was okay. She hadn’t had any health problems…I just want answers. I want to know what led to my daughter’s death.”
A former Chief Science Officer and VP for Pfizer has called the widespread rollout of experimental vaccines for COVID “nonsense.”
“There is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the pandemic. I’ve never heard such nonsense talked about vaccines. You do not vaccinate people who aren’t at risk from a disease. You also don’t set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with a vaccine that hasn’t been extensively tested on human subjects.”
SAGE is the UK Scientific Advisor Group for Emergencies, the UK agency steering the coronavirus response.
Dr. Yeadon says that some level of herd immunity to the virus is much closer than health authorities are saying, due to T-cell immunity and antibody responses to at least four prior coronaviruses in circulation. Like flu, people will always catch,and a very small percentage will die, of COVID. But the pandemic stage is over, says Dr. Yeadon and his colleagues, but for the continuous announcement of “new cases” mostly based on false-positive test results.
As will be discussed later, official COVID death reporting policies make it difficult to determine what the US COVID death toll actually is. The problem also arises in other countries.
“SAGE says everyone was susceptible and only 7% have been infected. I think this is literally unbelievable. They have ignored all precedent in the field of immunological memory against respiratory viruses. They have either not seen or disregarded excellent quality work from numerous, world-leading clinical immunologists which show that around 30% of the population had prior immunity.”
COVID Deaths Openly Inflated Internationally.
Underscoring the difficulty of tracking how many deaths are actually due to COVID is the disingenuous, but openly admitted, policy of the CDC of counting any death which takes place “with COVID” as being “of COVID.” Dr. Deborah Birx of the White House Coronavirus Task Force said in April:
“to mark it as COVID-19 infection the intent is right now that those if someone dies with COVID-19 we are counting that as a COVID-19.”
In Minnesota a team of researchers, led by two state legislators one of whom is a medical doctor, found that, in a study of nearly 3,000 death certificates, up to 40% of the deaths were primarily caused by factors other than COVID, including vehicle accidents, fatal falls, drownings, and gunshot wounds, but were marked down as COVID anyway. By December, the CDC had listed hundreds of thousands of deaths counting as “COVID” which were also confirmed heart attacks, flu, terminal cancer, and poisoning.
Last March it was reported that Italy was using the same language, indicating an open deception international in scope. The UK Telegram reported “that Italy’s death rate may also appear high because of how doctors record fatalities.” Prof. Walter Ricciardi, scientific adviser to Italy’s minister of health, told the Telegraph:
“The way in which we code deaths in our country is very generous in the sense that all the people who die in hospitals with the coronavirus are deemed to be dying of the coronavirus.”
In Louisiana, a woman had a severe reaction to a Pfizer vaccine which caused her to go into uncontrollable convulsions. RT reports the reaction is being investigated (video below.)
In Norway, Bloomberg News reports that health authorities expressed concern after 29 elderly people died after receiving the Pfizer vaccine. Bloomberg reported on January 16:
“Until Friday, the vaccine produced by Pfizer and BioNTech SE was the only one available in Norway, and “all deaths are thus linked to this vaccine,” the Norwegian Medicines Agency said in a written response to Bloomberg on Saturday.”
Dublin University Immunologist Says Large Number of Vaccinated Will Die from Mutant Strains in Months, Will Be Blamed on COVID
Prof. Dolores Cahill received her PhD in Immunology from Dublin City University, and was leader of the Protein Technology Group in the Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Genetics, Berlin. She is Professor of Translational Science at the UCD School of Medicine and Medical Sciences.
Prof. Cahill’s contention that those who have received COVID vaccines will begin dying in great numbers after 3 to 6 months is echoed by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny D.O., an American physician. A D.O. is a physician who completes medical school the same as an MD, who may perform surgery and prescribe medications the same as an MD.
Both Prof. Cahill and Dr. Tenpenny say that previous attempts to formulate coronavirus vaccines have, after some apparent short-term success, run into the problem of hyper-immune response when exposed to the wild, mutated virus.
“Scientists first attempted to develop coronavirus vaccines after China’s 2002 SARS-CoV outbreak. Teams of US & foreign scientists vaccinated animals with the four most promising vaccines. At first, the experiment seemed successful as all the animals developed a robust antibody response to coronavirus. However, when the scientists exposed the vaccinated animals to the wild virus, the results were horrifying. Vaccinated animals suffered hyper-immune responses including inflammation throughout their bodies, especially in their lungs. Researchers had seen this same “enhanced immune response” during human testing of the failed RSV vaccine tests in the 1960s. Two children died.”
Comparisons to Spanish Flu Neglect Population Difference
COVID is now being compared to the Spanish Flu, because the US reported death toll is allegedly 400,000, but this neglects that the Spanish Flu was nearly a magnitude worse in per capita terms, as the population of the US was about 100,000 million at the time, less than one-third of today, and the death toll was nearly 700,000.
Better comparisons are the 1957 Asian Flu and the 1968 Hong Kong Flu, the latter of which, in that same summer, the country had the largest mass gathering in US history, Woodstock.
Nurses Refuse to Administer Vaccine, FDNY Firefighters Say They’ll Refuse COVID-19 Vaccine
In Coffey County, Kansas, county health department nurses have declined to perform injections of the coronavirus vaccines, citing ethical concerns. On January13 health department administrator Lindsay Payer told WIBW News:
“I will tell you we will have to contract staff outside of our staff to give that vaccine because my staff is not comfortable with that…It’s a new technology. We’ve never seen it before….all liability is gone from them. So, if there’s anything bad about the vaccine it doesn’t go back to them. That’s widely known, and it’s somewhat discomforting to a nurse who has to put that in people’s bodies. So, we will find nurses that are willing to do that. I am not. My staff is not at this time.”
In New York City, more than half of FDNY firefighters have said in an internal poll that they will not take a COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to first responders.
The poll was of the oldest and most prestigious first responders union in the country, the Uniformed Firefighters Association.
2020 Comes in at 12% Excess Deaths, How Many Due to Lockdowns?
In a first good end-of-year measure of how 2020 fared in terms of overall deaths, the CDC reports that excess deaths, which is the number over the average of the previous five years, is 12%, or about 330,000 deaths. Thus even with the shell game of counting any death possible as COVID, something killed more people than usual last year. The question is was it COVID, COVID policies, something else, or a combination of all three?
Each year about 40,000 more people are expected to die than the previous year due to the aging Baby Boomer demographic. In addition, a study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association estimated that 20% of excess deaths over and above previous years were due not to COVID, but to the effects of the lockdowns.
“Some people who never had the virus may have died because of disruptions caused by the pandemic,” says Dr. Steven H. Woolf, the director emeritus of the Virginia university’s Center on Society and Health and first author of the study. “These include people with acute emergencies, chronic diseases like diabetes that were not properly cared for, or emotional crises that led to overdoses or suicides.”
If the 20% of excess deaths figure is extrapolated, then nearly 70,000 deaths could be due to the effects of lockdowns such as deferred critical care for other conditions. Supporting that the number may be high, in December the New York Times reported “40,000 extra deaths from diabetes, Alzheimer’s, high blood pressure and pneumonia”alone.
Sustained Pandemic in the US Took Off with Governors’ Orders of COVID Patients into Nursing Homes in Populous States
One characteristic which is said to distinguish the coronavirus from other viruses is transmissibility. But if this is the case, then the effect of the orders of governors from NY, NJ, MI, PA, and CA cannot be discounted, which sent recovering COVD patients into nursing homes.
Most especially in New York, on March 25, Governor Andrew Cuomo resisted the loud objections of nursing home executives, and sent hundreds of COVID patients into the nursing homes where the frailest of the frail were housed. Just days later, the exponential phase of the pandemic in New York hit, at the same time as New Jersey’s.
Would the pandemic in the US, and the excess deaths, have turned out as it did had these orders not been given? Which Cuomo himself likened to touching fire to “dry grass?”
In any accounting for last year’s excess deaths, these orders must bear their share of accountability, regardless of where the political chips may fall.
Yale Epidemiologist Says Hundreds of Thousands of Lives Could Have Been, and Could be Saved with Remedies
Last April the FDA issued a warning that the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) in the treatment of COVID could cause heart arrhythmia. The warning neglected to mention, as Dr. Lisa Koche, a family medicine doctor in Florida pointed out, that the study the warning was based on gave the study subjects up to 12 times the recommended dose for Plaquenil, a brand name for HCQ. This would almost pre-ordain a negative heart reaction. The dosage instructions for Plaquenil for malaria read:
“Adults: 800 mg followed by 400 mg at 6 hours, 24 hours and 48 hours after the initial dose.”
The study administered as much as 1200 mg a day for 10 days. What would be the purpose of publishing a study designed to fail?
This is one of the intriguing questions surrounding last year’s drama over HCQ, in which the medical establishment seemed determined to prove that something didn’t work that did, according to reams of evidence.
One doctor singing the praises of HCQ is Dr. Harvey Risch, at the Yale School of Public Medicine, who believes judicious use of HCQ could save “75,000 to 100,000 Lives.”
Another remedy which has shown enormous promise, but again is suppressed for mysterious reasons, is Ivermectin, an anti-parasite drug with, like HCQ, a long safety record. One might almost conclude that the interest of the highest health authorities is in people dying, not living, and shepherding the population toward inadequately tested vaccines.
Also recently breaking from Newsweek is a peer-reviewed, Stanford-based international study which shows “no clear” benefit, in slowing COVID, from business closures and lockdowns.
And unreported in the US, in Belgium, a lawsuit is underway, including a criminal complaint, against Bill Gates, a funder and investor in almost every aspect of the pandemic response, and Prof. Neil Ferguson, the Imperial College epidemiologist known as “Professor Lockdown.” The Brussels Times reported last July:
“The group are attacking Gates in court because of his status as a top contributor to the World Health Organisation (WHO) and over his various funding projects into coronavirus treatments and vaccines, while they are going after Ferguson — a top advisor to the WHO and, until recently, to the UK government — for producing mortality and infection rates estimates which they say are “completely wrong.””
Ferguson co-founded the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis, based at Imperial, which, according to Business Insider, gets “tens of millions of dollars in annual funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.”
Crimes against humanity refer to specific crimes committed in the context of a large-scale attack targeting civilians, regardless of their nationality. These crimes include murder, torture, sexual violence, enslavement, persecution, enforced disappearance, etc.
Crimes against humanity have often been committed as part of State policies, but they can also be perpetrated by non-State armed groups or paramilitary forces. Unlike war crimes, crime against humanity can also be committed in peacetime, and contrary to genocide, they are not necessarily committed against a specific national, ethnical, racial or religious group.
CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW
Crimes against humanity appeared for the first time in a treaty in the 1945 Nuremberg Charter at the end of the Second World War, albeit with a different definition than today.
Unlike other human rights violations, war crimes do not engage State responsibility but individual criminal responsibility. This means that individuals can be tried and found personally responsible for these crimes.
Prohibited acts include:
Deportation or forcible transfer of population
Persecution against an identifiable group
Enforced disappearance of persons
The crime of apartheid
Other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health
