Part 1: The ugly corrupt lie of the experimental COVID jab

Joe Biden: dictator
Joe Biden: claiming the power to tell us what medicines we must take

On September 9, 2021, President Joe Biden announced harsh mandates nationwide that forced millions to get COVID shots. You had no choice. If you refused, you would be fired from your job and made a non-person, forbidden in all ways from participating normally in society.

“We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin,” Biden said, making a direct appeal to the 80 million people who he said were still unvaccinated. “Your refusal has cost all of us.”

…”It’s simple [said an official]: If you want to work for the federal government, you must be vaccinated. If you want to do business with the government, you must vaccinate your workforce.”

Those mandates — unreasonably based on very uncertain knowledge at the time — have now been found to have killed thousands of people who did not need to die.

And worst of all, the people imposing those mandates were lying, and knew they were lying.

Killing young adults

For a large majority of the population that either voluntarily chose to get the COVID jab or were forced to submit under duress, the shots and boosters at this point appear to have been harmless. Most people have exhibited no negative symptoms once jabbed, and have so far been able to go on with their lives as if nothing had changed.

The problem is that for many, that jab was a death sentence, with the executioner often arriving unexpectedly but quickly, and completely unnecessarily.

For example, prior to the Wuhan flu and these shots, it was almost unheard of for a young professional sports player to die suddenly during play. It did happen, but such events were so rare that when it did happen it always became a major news event.

This impression is also backed up by hard research. According to one study,

A total of 1866 athletes who died suddenly (or survived cardiac arrest), 19±6 years of age, were identified throughout the United States from 1980 to 2006 in 38 diverse sports. … In this national registry, the absolute number of cardiovascular sudden deaths in young US athletes was somewhat higher than previous estimates but relatively low nevertheless, with a rate of <100 per year.

No more. In the past two years alone more than 1,300 athletes have experienced cardiac arrest or serious heart issues, with almost 1,000 dying suddenly. All occurred after their sports organizations moved in lock-step with Joe Biden’s governmental mandates and imposed similar mandates on their athletes. If you wanted to play, you had to get the jab.

These numbers only cover athletes. There is also ample evidence of similar cardiac deaths occurring among all young people who were forced to get the jab. Once again, the numbers who die or get very ill remains small, but those numbers would have been considered unacceptable for any vaccine or shot prior to 2020, causing the vaccine or shot to be instantly pulled from the market. Instead, the medical community and the government have done their utmost to hide these numbers, either by slandering those that publicize them or by then quietly admitting to their reality later but so quietly no one notices.

Nor are heart problems in young people the only negative consequence caused by the jab. Another study has found that organ recipients were rejecting their transplants after receiving COVID shot. Other research found some developed a rare blood disorder after getting jabbed.

Another study found that among those who had negative symptoms after getting the COVID shot, 94% had “metal-like objects” in their blood.

In conclusion, such abrupt changes as we have documented in the peripheral blood profile of 948 patients have never been observed after inoculation by any vaccines in the past according to our clinical experience. The sudden transition, usually at the time of a second mRNA injection, from a state of perfect normalcy to a pathological one, with accompanying hemolysis, visible packing and stacking of red blood cells in conjunction with the formation of gigantic conglomerate foreign structures, some of them appearing as graphene-family super-structures, is unprecedented. Such phenomena have never been seen before after any ‘vaccination’ of the past,” the researchers stated.

In our experience as clinicians, these mRNA injections are very unlike traditional ‘vaccines’ and their manufacturers need, in our opinions, to come clean about what is in the injections and why it is there.

Nor is this all. See the horrifying list I provided on studies finding negative consequences from the jab in this June essay. Not only do the shots appear to increase short-term health risk, there is growing evidence it causes long-term damage to the immune system, brain damage, and blood clots.

Killing little children

While the shot appears to cause only limited mortal harm among adults, with children it seemed almost routinely deadly, a fact made even more horrifying in that healthy children are practically immune from the Wuhan flu in the first place. For example, Europe experienced a shocking 755% increase in excess deaths among children after it approved they get the COVID shots. Meanwhile, in the U.S. the CDC found that more than half of babies and toddlers had a “systematic reaction” after getting jabbed, with about 10% of these children experiencing serious health impacts that could shorten their lives.

A number of sane governments worldwide quickly responded to this data and stopped giving the jab to their younger populations.

The last article also noted these facts:

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) own VAERS data, 19 serious adverse events have been identified in vaccinated babies and toddlers. Those adverse events include “death, life-threatening illness, hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization, permanent disability, congenital anomaly or birth defect.”

Not surprisingly, even though American government agencies have continued to demand that everyone get their kids jabbed, the public has not gone along.

In D.C., which has the highest percentage of young children vaccinated, less than one quarter of children 6 months to four years old have received one dose— and 7.5% have received both doses, per the Washington Post. The states with some of the lowest child vaccination rates — Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi — have vaccination rates of less than 0.2%, the Post found.

Parents have almost universally decided that the jab is a bad idea for their kids.

Killing people for a shot that doesn’t work

Nor has this decision been a mistake. Studies are now finding that the shots are largely useless in stopping COVID. For just one example, a very large study of 134,000 people found that the shots quickly became ineffective.

They found that people who were fully vaccinated (with two doses of an mRNA vaccine, from either Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech) experienced a decline in vaccine effectiveness against both Delta and Omicron infections, but the drop was greater against Omicron than against Delta. Among the vaccinated, the shots’ effectiveness declined from 36% up to two months after the second dose of the primary series, to 1% up to four months later (or six months after the second dose). [emphasis mine]

Note the numbers: The jab worked for only about one third of those who got it, and only for a few months. After that it did nothing to stop COVID, and was thus pointless. Other data from places like Australia reinforce this conclusion. Despite practically everyone being forced to get the shots, that country set new records for COVID deaths.

The shots simply didn’t stop COVID, as promised. (For more evidence, see the list of similar studies in my June post.)

Thus, it is not surprising that there are doctors demanding a pause in its use.

One of Britain’s most influential cardiologists, Dr. Aseem Malhotra—citing a duty to his patients, scientific integrity, and the truth—just published what he describes as perhaps the most critical research paper of his prestigious career. His work, fueled by the sudden death of his “very fit and well” father in July 2021, critically appraised the real-world data around the mRNA COVID jab.

After nine months of rigorous research and extensive peer review, Malhotra’s paper concludes what many heavily censored brave experts have been saying for months—the massive push to get the mRNA COVID-19 jab into the arms of humanity serves a purely sinister purpose: increased pharmaceutical shareholder profits at any cost. Indeed, with Pfizer in the lead, Malhotra is convinced the current system, which gives big pharma way too much power, is “encouraging good people to do bad things.” On that note, he is calling for all COVID-19 vaccines to be withdrawn.

Don't you dare argue with Joe, you fascist!
Don’t you dare argue with Joe, you fascist! He knows best,
even when he knows nothing!

In the beginning the jab was experimental, it wasn’t known for sure if it would work, and the preliminary tests before approval strongly suggested it might prove harmful. To impose any mandates requiring people to get it was unconscionable.

Yet, Joe Biden, many Democrat politicians, and their tools in corporate management did mandate it, without data or thought.

We have now learned what a terrible idea these mandates were. Their use should never have been forced. Instead, people should have been allowed to choose for themselves, freely, as free educated citizens are allowed to do, in a free society.

Joe Biden and the Democrats however don’t like the idea of a free society, and so they smashed their boots into our faces, and thousands of young people died unnecessarily, while thousands of others lost their jobs and had their lives crushed.

May we never again allow government to make our health decisions for us. It is not their job.

However, none of this is the worst part of this story. The worst part? We now know those unreasonable edicts were imposed by government officials who from day one of the Wuhan panic were consciously and routinely lying about everything.

More on this last subject in part 2 of this essay, tomorrow.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.


All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.


Autographed printed copies are also available at discount directly from me (hardback $24.95; paperback $14.95; Shipping cost for either: $5.00). Just email me at zimmerman @ nasw dot org.

    I’ve never had Covid.

    Never been ‘jabbed’.

    Never once wore a mask.

    Never once compromised my principles.

    The finger said it all.

  • GaryMike

    Apparently, I guessed right.

  • Tom Donohue

    I tested positive for the COVID just before Thanksgiving 2020 but had no symptoms whatsoever. This was the case for the other four in my immediate family. Someone who had visited the house had it. Then, I had to endure the Biden jab or lose my consulting work supporting a nearby Federal Agency. I will hold in contempt forever all those who forced me to receive that mystery concoction. A pox on their houses.

  • GaryMike

    Funny how a lot of people never miss an opportunity to coerce someone else as sport.

  • Cotour

    Related, it’s all related:


    If you were ever confused about whether the media was carrying water for a particular political party and their destructive agenda instead of just somewhat objectively reporting the actual news, the video clips below will without doubt disabuse you of that confusion.

    Don Lemon stares in stunned disbelief as a British woman correctly reframes the fraudulent BLM slavery / reparations controversy:

    Don Lemon, “politically correct”, “woke” Leftist political operative jackass and fear monger, once again attempts to turn a simple report on a dangerous hurricane into a political narrative that serves the Democrat party and their Globalist overlords and gets owned. Again, in stunned deer in the headlights silence:

    Don Lemon who clearly is not the sharpest pencil in the draw twice traps himself and reveals just how corrupt CNN and its brand of reporting the news actually is. CNN and a majority of the rest of the media and social media seek not to provide the news to you, so you are informed, they are involved in an unspoken conspiracy to tell you what you are to think, say and do.

    And these likeminded conspirators are working hand in glove with the now clearly radical, Leftist and anti-American Democrat party machine who are attempting to tear down America and destroy our culture, family structure and religions in order to rebuild it in their more “Equal” utopian wonderland (Read controlled and compliant socialist model).

    You are a Democrat? You are going to vote in November in the midterms? You cannot vote for any Democrat, not this time anyway because it is suicidal.

    Don Lemon *IS* the dumbest man on TV. How dumb are you?

    The worst of this may be far from over. Mr, Zimmerman have you seen the 10 minute interview with DR. Cahill? It’s chilling. I pray her conclusions about the vaccinated do not come to pass. When my family and friends got covid we saw the only doctor in the area that was prescribing HCQ with zinc etc. The Doctor also is a self-described science nerd and refused to give anyone the fake “vaxx”. He told us almost the exact same conclusions that Dr. Cahill has predicted. Sorry I don’t have the link. Will look for it though. The ones that are paying attention should now be aware the all-cause mortality has been increasing throughout 2021 then increasing further in 2022 and mostly in the younger segment of victims. They are truly victims. Here’s the link; I hope there are factors that she hasn’t accounted for in her summary of coming events. Be safe and stay vigilant in these trying times.

  • Jeremy, Alabama

    I had heard enough a year ago to forbid my wife from taking my (then) 12 year old son for the shot. It was already clear that the shot was not for his benefit, and there was already news in “alternative media” that there were bad side-effects.

    I have no doubt that this story is going to really blow up, big time. And it will be a further example of why would anyone read or trust ANYTHING that comes out of the main stream media? To me, CNN and MSNBC are COMPLICIT in the murder of children. There is no reasonable explanation for how it is that I knew, while CNN did not.

  • Skunk Bucket

    I just watched the linked video interview of Dr. Cahill and all I can say is that I hope she’s a quack, because if what she says is true, we could be in the middle of a civilization-ending event in the next couple of years. Of my immediate and extended family, only my 86yo mother and I refused the MRNA jab. Using Dr. Cahill’s predictions, all of the rest will be dead in 3-5 years. I’m about to start doing some serious research on this woman and her claims. Chilling is an understatement.

  • Cotour

    I just sent this out to just a few friends: (I cannot send it out to most of them, they have all their shots and boosters.)


    Now I have heard this before and did not transmit it because it was too over the top. But given what I am observing in people that I know and the things that they are telling me about people they know who are sick or have died, you have to see the possibilities here.

    And I and many others who are aware of agendas like the depopulation of the earth in order to “Save the earth” have spoken about it but its too big to believe.

    Its too Strategy Over Morality, remember that term? Where all and I mean ALL potentials exist.

    Too Alex Jones?

    But Alex Jones, like him or not has called a great deal of what we all see before our eyes today.

    Criminal is too small a word if this turns out to be so.

  • Cotour, the premise of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six immediately comes to mind.

    GaryMike: it may appear as mindless as sport, but those inclined to coerce are filled with a sense of duty and fundamentalist zeal, because they Know Better™. Think of it as the Smart Man’s Burden.

    C. S. Lewis described them well, decades ago.

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.

  • Cotour


    This fits right in with C.S. Lewis’s observations:

    “Echoing human security principles, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development emphasizes a “world free of poverty, hunger, disease and want … free of fear and violence … with equitable and universal access to quality education, health care and social protection … to safe drinking water and sanitation … where food is sufficient, safe, affordable and nutritious … where habits are safe, resilient and sustainable … and where there is universal access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy.”

    It calls for development strategies that result in resilient societies where people are safe from chronic threats such as abject poverty, hunger, disease, violence and repression, and protected from sudden and hurtful disruptions in their daily lives.”

    C.S. Lewis : “but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ”

    And that is exactly where the Democrat party machine and their Globalist masters are driving our country and the world. Chilling.

  • Concerned

    Jester, Cotour:
    The great Ronald Reagan had a succinct way of putting it (paraphrasing):

    The scariest thing a citizen can hear is: “I’m from the government and I’m here to help”

    My elderly father died alone in a hospital that was on full lock-down in April of 2021. Despite all the pleas to see him we were denied. My father went in with a UT infection, a week later when he was scheduled to be released they declared he needed gallbladder surgery but had to drain the organ and that could take another week. Soon after I called the hospital and found out he had a fever and the nurse told me he had pneumonia. On week 4 they declared that it might be possible for him to leave the hospital and go to hospice. One day later they said he had COVID. The next day I received a phone call asking if I wanted to come to the hospital and see my father, his will indicated he did not want to be kept alive on machines, he was dying. Now I could see him. An hour later, he was dead.
    In his last moments he must have wondered, “where is my family? Did they forget about me? Did I mean so little to them?”
    For this I will never forgive or forget. If there is justice in this universe then the sins of doctors and nurses and staff will be revisited upon them for every patient they let die alone. Like my father.

    What’s going on? The purpose of every other vaccine is to imprint your immune system with knowledge of a virus as a pathogen. Then, when they catch the virus, their immune systems quickly recognize it, mobilizes, and fights it before it can get much of a foothold. That happens to most people after their first jab of the COVID-19 vaccines. Most side effects appear to be the immune system reacting to the presence of the spike proteins from the 2nd and subsequent jabs. They aren’t increasing immune system memory of the virus – that is already well established. The only thing that these subsequent jabs do is to massively trigger an immune response to the two spike proteins generated by the mRNA in the vaccine – which means that any cells exhibiting the spike proteins is killed, based on the age old assumption that it is now a virus factory.

    Why do the subsequent jabs cause side effects for up to a month or so afterwards? Probably because the manufacturers (Pfizer, Moderna…) apparently switched out Uridine (U) in the original spike generating RNA In the virus for N1-Methylpseudouridine (m1Ψ) in the mRNA in the vaccines. Partly, I suspect that it was done in order to make the vaccines easier to manufacture, transport, and deliver. It also better hides the mRNA from the immune system (but also allows it to cross the blood/brain barrier more easily). The problem is that mRNA normally breaks down very quickly in the body – maybe in 15 minutes or so. m1Ψ Enhanced mRNA doesn’t appear to do so, having been detected as long as 2, maybe even 4 months after a jab. The vaccine safety is partially predicated on rapid breakdown of mRNA at the injection site (hence the requirement to sit down for 15 minutes after injection, and to expect the injection site to be sore). Except that the mRNA in the vaccine apparently doesn’t break down quickly, but can linger in the body for months. This means that it is naturally swept out of the injection site through the lymphatic system, and ultimately sent through the circulatory system to the rest of the body, merrily producing spike proteins the whole time, when it can accumulate in inconvenient locations, where it can cause side effects (e.g. accumulating in heart muscle causing myocarditis). Remember – most side effects appear to be the result of the immune system attacking and killing cells exhibiting the spike proteins produced by the mRNA vaccines.
