While stories about the ineffective and harmful consequences of the panic over the Wuhan flu continue to pour in on an almost daily basis, it is often better to step back and see these many stories in aggregate. By looking at the forest from a distance, a clearer picture frequently reveals itself that remains hidden if you only focus on studying the individual trees.
For example, the graph to the right, first published in January 2022, suggests strongly that giving young children the COVID shots only increased their mortality. This is just one story, however. Is it typical, or an outlier? You need to look at the larger picture to know.
Below I list and categorize the many science papers and news stories I have been collecting since my previous detailed two essays in May about the epidemic and its consequences (see: “The evidence keeps pouring in showing the utter failure of all COVID mandates” and “Are the COVID vaccines killing people over time? The data suggests yes.”). The totality of this data does appear shocking, especially because it makes evident the utter failure of almost every policy set by almost every government health official and elected politician since the Wuhan flu arrived in 2020.
First we must take another look at the new research about the mask mandates, policies that decades of research repeatedly showed would do nothing to protect anyone from COVID, and might even be unhealthy.
- Study Finds ‘Positive Correlation’ Between Higher Mask Usage And COVID-19 Deaths
- Mask Mandates Caused MORE COVID Deaths, Study Alleges
- Public Schools With More Masking, Remote Classes Saw Largest Enrollment Drops, Study Reveals
- Do mask mandates work? Bay Area COVID data from June says no
- More Bad News for the Mask Cult
- Why Is Everyone in Texas Not Dying?
The research in these papers all confirm the data from previous decades: Masks don’t work. Unfortunately, the new data is also confirming that mask-wearing is actually both physically and mentally unhealthy, and should be avoided. The harm done to young children is especially infuriating. Americans should be ashamed that they subjected their kids to this torture for the past two years.
Next we have the government lockdowns. As early as the spring of 2020 it was evident that the lockdowns were a terrible idea. They crushed the economy, destroyed businesses, careers, and lives, and accomplished nothing. The following two recent research papers merely reinforce those conclusions.
- Report by German Parliament Expert Committee Finds No Evidence that Lockdowns did Anything
- New study shows Sweden’s decision to keep schools open was all gain, no pain
As I said, these conclusions were obvious from the beginning. That the few sane voices who saying so were ignored or silenced only makes this new research more galling.
It now appears however that masks and lockdowns might not be the worst consequence of the brainless and panicky reaction to the Wuhan flu by government officials. The damaging effects from the COVID shots might in the end far exceed the destruction caused by masks and lockdowns.
(A side note: I never refer to these shots as “vaccines” because they are not vaccines. Even from the start government officials knew the shots would not prevent COVID, even as they publicly claimed they would — while also shouting that if you didn’t get the jab you might die. All that was a lie. As Dr. Debra Birx, who served as White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator during the Trump administration, admitted during a House hearing last week, “I think it was hoped that the vaccine would work. [emphasis mine]” She, and everyone else in the government, did not know, even as they forced the shots on everyone.)
What we do now know, from the following research, is that the jab can cause serious specific adverse reactions in a significant number of people.
- New study links COVID vaccines to 25% increase in cardiac arrest for both males & females
- Moderna Vaccine Increases Myocarditis Risk by 44 Times in Young Adults: Peer-Reviewed Study
- More Post-Vaccination Heart Inflammation Among Young Males After COVID Booster: CDC
- Two New Studies Link Incurable Brain Disease to COVID-19 Vaccine
- COVID vaccines appear to cause abnormally long blood clots, says pathologist
- The link between COVID shots, blood clots, and graphene oxide
- Peer Reviewed Paper Shows Significant Fertility Risks For Men Who Get the Pfizer COVID Jab
- Reactivation of Chickenpox Virus Following COVID-19 Injections On The Rise
- Covid Jabs INCREASE Risk of Infection According to New England Journal of Medicine
- The most powerful evidence yet that mRNA vaccines hurt long-term immunity to Covid after infection
- New Study finds Covid Vaccination can cause Children to suffer Vaccine-Associated Enhanced Disease; & Pfizer and the FDA knew it would happen
Each of these links describes different research studies. There are no duplicates. Four report on evidence that the jab causes serious heart problems, mostly in young people who should not have such problems. Other studies find that the shots cause brain disease, blood clots, fertility issues, and chickenpox. There is also evidence the jab damages immunity and increases disease in young children.
Other research now shows the generally useless nature of the shots in preventing COVID itself.
- Fauci’s researchers find better antibody response from natural immunity than Moderna vaccine
- New paper in Science suggests the vaccines are useless if not harmful against Omicron
- Severe COVID-19 is Rarely Found in the Unvaccinated
- Overall deaths in Australia – where nearly everyone is vaccinated – are spiking.
- BREAKING: Fully Vaxxed and Boosted Dr. Fauci Catches COVID
Generally, the jab doesn’t seem to do much to prevent the Wuhan flu, and there is even some evidence that its presence in the body might weaken the body’s ability to fight off the disease.
Yet, overall, how dangerous are the shots, and how prevalent are adverse events that come from them? The following stories take a wider look at the negative effects of the COVID jab.
- A 3.7% rate of myocarditis in our latest survey of vaccinated Americans
- 1,287,595 Injuries Reported After COVID Shots, Vaccine Injury Compensation Programs ‘Overwhelmed’
While the total numbers in the second story are quite disturbing, exceeding by many times the number of adverse events of all past vaccines combined, the percentage indicated in the first story, 3.7%, is probably the more important number. It is based on a large survey of individuals who got the jab, and is also roughly confirmed by other studies listed at the link, which found myocarditis in 1% to 4% of individuals surveyed. This number likely represents a good approximation of the total chance a person will experience serious illness from getting the jab, since even if you add in all the other illnesses listed above, this percentage is likely not to increase significantly since most of these studies involve relatively small numbers.
So, yes, based on these numbers the overall the risk from the Wuhan shots seems relatively low. Only about 3% to 4% of all individuals who get the shot risk a serious adverse event, with an undetermined but likely large percentage of those surviving. But is this risk low compared to the risk of COVID itself?
No. In fact it is far higher. COVID kills only about 2% of those who get the virus, most of whom are either old, sick with several chronic diseases, or physically unhealthy. It kills practically no one in the general population. Like the regular flu, you get it, are sick for a short period, and then recover and go on with your life.
The negative consequences of the jab however are much worse. While the shots provide you little or no protection from COVID, the jab can apparently subject you to serious health risks. Worse, it attacks and even kills young and healthy people, individuals who did not need the jab at all because they were under no threat from the virus.
Overall, these numbers strongly suggest that the jab might actually be more risky to your health than COVID itself.
Even more distressing, while getting COVID is entirely out of one’s control, getting the jab should have been entirely optional, and avoidable if you didn’t want it. Governments worldwide however decided it should be required, and in that panic caused numerous private businesses and venues to require it as well. Choice was removed, and thus many people have died from the jab who might not have had they been given the freedom to decide for themselves. Furthermore, everyone who has gotten the jab — which was nothing more than an experimental drug that had not been thoroughly tested — is now faced with an unknown health future with potentially much greater risks.
How our governments determined policy against COVID during
the past two years.
Going forward, do any of these facts matter to our rulers, especially those who are leftwing or Democrats? Nah. Such governments are insane. Even as the evidence shows that past mask and “vaccine” mandates and lockdown policies accomplished nothing or even had negative consequences, these authorities continue to push them on us, over and over and over again.
- FDA Authorizes Covid ‘Booster’ Shots for Small Children, Despite ‘Very Little’ Effectiveness and Known Risks
- CDC signs off on booster shots for children ages 5 to 11
- FDA Panel Votes to Waive Clinical Trials for New COVID Boosters
- California is still in a state of emergency
- Adams says NYC’s COVID-alert status is ‘medium’ — yet threat is almost completely gone
As I said, insane. However, insanity is not the only possible explanation for these irrational government actions, as shown in the next story:
- NIH scientists received estimated $350 million in royalties since 2009: Report
- UPDATE 2-Pfizer signs new $3.2 bln COVID vaccine deal with U.S. government
- COVID-19 vaccine sales push Moderna to $12B profit in 2021
The pharmaceutical and medical industry has been making a lot of money on the Wuhan panic, much of which I guarantee they are funneling back into the pockets of the politicians who have helped feed that panic.
If greed is thus another reason for these insane policies, then these government and medical officials are not simply insane, they are downright evil.
Am I paranoid? Well consider this: Not only have government officials like Debra Birx and Anthony Fauci and Joe Biden repeatedly lied about COVID and the jab, they also lied about the virus’s origins. The federal government helped fund the Chinese research that created this virus, and officials like Fauci and others did things to hide what they had done.
Let me close with one last link, since it suggests that the blame should not entirely be put on the heads of the politicians and health officials who led the panic.
The study found that there was no evidence of long-term COVID-19 infection in patients who were six or more weeks removed from the onset of symptoms, even if those patients reported that they were experiencing “long COVID.” Further, the study found that individuals who reported having long COVID were disproportionately women and individuals with history of anxiety disorders.
Can you see yourself in this crowd?
In other words, these people have been, in their panic, imagining that they still had the Wuhan flu, long after it was gone.
This panicky fear-based mindset is exactly the kind of mindset that the power-hungry in government need to get their way. Any attempt to create fear and panic on their part cannot succeed if the general public has the coolness of mind to not panic and to think.
Sadly, coolness of mind did not exist in 2020. Instead, the power-hungry had the full and credulous cooperation of the general public. The result was a lot of abuse of power, much of which only worsened the epidemic and its later consequences.
We are now paying for that panic, in spades. And the bill unfortunately has not entirely come due.
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.
