UPDATE NOTE: Yup, had to correct some spelling errors (regieme?) what a pain! Had to photo shop the “eme” out of the original file, retype the “me”, save, upload and replace. While checking for other errors and making minor corrections (while still in the post editor after inserting the new photo) before I knew it I was adding to the post! lol

Sorry, I don’t normally like to do this – (stressful) so this is just a head’s up on some additional blah blah blah being added to the existing traditional worn out repetitious blah blah blah.


The LDPCSD (Lake Don Pedro Community Services District) is an excellent example as to how government, ostensibly created “by the people for the people”, can be incrementally hi-jacked (aka insidiously stolen) from the intended control by the “tax paying, benefit-entitled legal citizens”.

So what happens when “the people” just sleep, or incorrectly trust, or are distracted, infected, misdirected, de-platformed, internet throttled, effectively silenced, etc,., and essentially continue to allow dishonest individuals to pursue their own personal political and societal goals while “serving the public”?

OUR GOVERNMENT is surreptitiously re-configured into a Frankenstein-like system which promotes, protects and hosts a network of various parasitic criminal players (and their organizations) all operating within the presumed legitimate government structure.

Nestled in the complex processes and procedures of traditional government these “traitors” comfortably and successfully camouflaged themselves within an expanding environment of special interest contradictory decisions, policies, and operations. The best part for these local low level “bad actors” is the complete lack of responsibility and accountability for their intentional violation of law, unethical activity and complete betrayal of MR WECs (Merced River Water Entitled Customers) of the Lake Don Pedro residential subdivision. (Such a government at the next level (when complaints are received) will deny any responsibility for the corruption and laughingly respond with the typical solution of “then just vote them out of office it’s YOUR DISTRICT” neglecting the fact the entire voting process had been setup to discourage and prevent the “people’s voice” from realistically being heard or acted upon. Just look at the revelations only now coming out regarding the 2020 presidential election fraud and FAKE IMPEACHMENTS of a FORMER PRESIDENT for doing what was best for AMERICA FIRST. Think about that next time grocery shopping or fueling your vehicle or maybe purchasing new batteries for your electric ride.)

Personally, I prefer the descriptive amalgamated form of the words “California” (the once beautiful and proud state) and “confusion” as the best nickname for this choreographed state betrayal:


How can that be? One might reasonably ask.

Because the LDPCSD BOARD OF DEFECTORS serve the same government corruption that created their “elected/appointed” positions in the first place with the formation of a COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT that by design and function actively violates every defining and desirable characteristic of a California Special District (CSD)!


Institutionalized FRAUD!

What are the characteristics of a California Special District anyway?  A limited public service; a defined geographical service area; a specific class of designated customers, and the service is provided for only the cost necessary in delivering that service to the customer, yet all four characteristics in our CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICT have been ignored in favor of beneficial exploitation for LAFCO ANNEXATION DEVELOPMENT PROMOTERS  and all to the detriment of the MANDATORY LDPCSD CUSTOMERS WITHIN THE RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISION.   Imagine, all the decades of expensive turmoil only continued by the same organizations that formed the LDPCSD in the first place back  in 1980.   Apparently this was all an intentionally designed trap for the “deep pocket” designated LDP property owner.  Creating a community services district with a deep pocket MANDATORY CUSTOMER BASE OF INNOCENT LAKE DON PEDRO PROPERTY OWNERS WHO ARE FORCED TO SUBSIDIZE AN EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM TO CIRCUMVENT MERCED RIVER WATER PLACE OF USE RESTRICTIONS IN 11395 FOR LAFCO ANNEXATIONS INTO THE LDPCSD THAT NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN APPROVED 20 YEARS AGO ACCORDING TO LAFCO’s OWN REGULATIONS?   LAFCO RESOLUTION 76-4….

LAFCO Resolution 76-4? (Can’t read it now? BS!)

Fortunately, prior to Mariposa County making such information “unavailable” on their public website (and physical office) I had already obtained and scanned many of the documents for posting on this website. However, when attempting to obtain some other critical “pieces of the ANNEXATION PUZZLE” the information was denied and the website access cut off.

Anyway, if LAFCO had followed their own established guidelines approved four years prior to the formation of the LDPCSD, well, this DECADES LONG NIGHTMARE OF DECEPTION AND BETRAYAL WOULD NEVER HAVE OCCURRED! Imagine, if those public employees had simply followed their own fucking rules like they FORCE citizens to follow regulations…….


IS some of my OLD Blah blah blah on the same subject matter –

you know, that’s another great aspect of telling the truth – older information will always remain relevant and I don’t have to go back and change ANYTHING to conceal deception!


Individuals, (and the entities within which they “work and exploit”), who misrepresent truth and fact (commonly recognized as lying their asses off and being deceitful) cannot simply re-post or use as a reference their past material without meticulously going over it and checking for


They must first locate, review, and then remove any uncomplimentary or contradictory information to prevent the public at large from recognizing the obvious deceit and trickery used to achieve whatever the goal was at the time.

They can not allow “evidence” of their past lack of integrity and duplicity to be publicly acknowledged because of the irrevocable harm it might do to their public reputation and community trust which would negatively affect other future endeavors – perhaps even legitimate ones.

The fact that decades of public records (documenting Mariposa County LAFCO PROPERTY ANNEXATIONS into the LDPCSD) have been prohibited from public inspection, review or acquisition is called a BIG CLUE.

As I recall other LAFCO resolutions were still available regarding other districts, but now all are unavailable between 1966-1995. (Problems with all annexations at the time, or that it looks better if all are unavailable rather than just the LDPCSD? Who knows but those involved?) 2005-2019 resolutions all appear to be accessible, but WHERE ARE 1995-2005 resolutions? Unless of course there were absolutely no resolutions at all during that nine (9) year period. I do recall there was a moratorium by the State on annexations for a while but didn’t know what that timeline was – perhaps this is it? If so, seems to me a note on the Mariposa website might be in order to explain the situation, yeah? Perhaps, “no LAFCO annexations were approved during this period due to ,……”. Definite lack of TRANSPARENCY the public is told all government entities practice.

If those properties were legally annexed into the LDPCSD why prohibit an investigation into what was actually done back then that has unequivocally resulted in 40+ years of major community turmoil and wasted resources here in Lake Don Pedro?

Also, to my knowledge (as of 2-27-2022 @ 0943hrs), the Merced Irrigation District 1993 “shape file”map (from a proposed major subdivision project in the mid 1990s which was abandoned when Pete Kampa was employed here the first time), the one Pete Kampa utilized on his “SECOND TOUR OF EMPLOYMENT CORRUPTION WITH THE LDPCSD” to produce his FAKE DIGITAL POU MAP EXPANDING DISTRICT SERVICE BOUNDARIES – and that was staged to surreptitiously replace the legitimate POU MAP on file with the State Water Board (thanks to KAMPA OPERATIVES WORKING WITHIN THE WATER RIGHTS DIVISION), has never been seen by ANYONE other than KAMPA and those involved with such an outrageous conspiratorial scam to defraud already victimized LDPCSD customers even further! Anyway, here’s some of that older material. phew!

Don’t forget to exit the following long string of older posts (if you select the “Part II Mar 18th 2019 LDPCSD BODM” post LINK) to return to the current ranting blah blah blah! lol (LINK didn’t turn out as anticipated.)



These directors only follow instructions from the special interests that control them and this fraud of a CSD since formation over 40 years ago.


So with LAFCO (who through the decades approved many nonsensical annexations into their CSD district that could not legally provide the water for proposed developments) and assistance from the CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS ASSOCIATION (where former GM “Sneaky Pete” KAMPA has been a 20 year Board Director), the LDPCSD is now doing exactly what it previously said it would never do: provide new service connections outside the POU using extremely expensive groundwater wells WE WERE TOLD WERE ONLY FOR EMERGENCY DROUGHT USE (that’s what the government grant was intended to provide and such new water connections were SPECIFICALLY PROHIBITED from being made with that grant money for developing new groundwater sources. Lies and cheating through the entire process.

So many “tricks” and “deceptions” used by these crooks. POU in water law terminology stands for PLACE OF USE, always has but guess who changed the traditional MIDPOU (Merced Irrigation District Place of Use) name to further confuse the issue? (Heck, the name change suggestion came from the Merced Irrigation District itself holder of Water License 11395 no less!) Here’s the link for some POU information on the website titled: OPU Restrictions

Call it POU or OPU – the policy was/is the same.


Yet in a recent board meeting ( – on page 28) the General Manager apparently recommended in writing that the board violate existing LDPCSD policy and serve EVEN MORE of our emergency drought groundwater outside the Merced Irrigation District Place of Use for Merced River Water! This is the real reason our rates will continue to go up – subdivision property owners are subsidizing a groundwater substitution service to circumvent the water license and furnish water to MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO annexations into the LDPCSD that NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN APPROVED IN THE FIRST PLACE! (Consider this, one proposed 900 acre residential subdivision was concealed from the public view for over 20 years until shortly before PETE KAMPA was unethically returned to finish his annexation scam by securing government grants for development of groundwater sources. And MR WECs continues to pay more for their water than is necessary.)

Only MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO working with “UNETHICAL AGENTS” within the LDPCSD (and likely TUOLUMNE COUNTY LAFCO also officials – however, Mariposa County was the lead agency in the formation of the LDPCSD) could have possibly pulled off a scam like that!

Imagine, concealing an entire proposed residential subdivision for over twenty years until PETER KAMPA was brought back to finish the secret deal by obtaining government grant money for drought emergencies by misrepresenting the actual service boundaries of the LDPCSD to qualify!

And that was only one of about seven proposed subdivisions that all required the LDPCSD to provide our ENTITLED SUBDIVISION WATER to properties outside the legal service area of the Merced Irrigation District Place of Use for Merced River Water.

PETER KAMPA actually stated that continued development outside the POU should proceed and the district would simply develop more 1/2 million – 3/4 million dollar groundwater wells when water consumption began to exceed production. FUCKING UNBELIEVABLE STATEMENT MADE IN A DROUGHT PRONE REGION!

These leftists will sell water outside the POU until we need more 1/2 million – 3/4 million dollar ground water wells. It’s all about making money for the “right people” while degrading MR WEC’s water quality and service and passing all additional costs to the “DEEP POCKET” OF ALL SUBDIVISION PROPERTY OWNERS. This is INSANE! (Unless intentionally trying to destroy yet another COMMON SENSE POLICY!) Open borders? Selling emergency drought water? Demented Joe would likely be very pleased.

Yeah I know, I wasn’t going to bother with these low-life lying deceiving cheats anymore but this is simply wrong and the fact our current GM is now following in the same disingenuous CSDA steps as SNEAKY PETE KAMPA, (even creating a new district for the area) well, I can’t remain silent and watch this scam continue. More later as I’ve got some other stuff that must be done.

WANT TO HELP SAVE AMERICA FROM OUR NATION’S CURRENT LEFTIST DEATH SPIN? Start at home – learn the facts and what such special interest cheats have been doing for 45+ years here in your own backyard. Won’t get better until we make it better with the truth!

Here’s an interesting and informative re-post regarding the “climate change movement” and what it might actually be doing:

Consider this one quote from the above post (there are many excellent points):

“If a community takes the grant, they accept the restrictions. In short, they must implement the guidelines of Agenda 21. In the back rooms of city hall and the state legislature, your government officials work hand-in-hand to write policy with the very NGOs which created Agenda 21.”

Receiving grants might be good in some respects (although we were told the groundwater source was specifically for EMERGENCY DROUGHT USE ONLY AND NOT CREATING NEW SERVICE CONNECTIONS and selling that emergency water outside the entitled subdivision), but when Pete Kampa intentionally lied and submitted false information about our actual service area and dismissed the POU restrictions contained in WL11395 in order to obtain that grant money, the LDPCSD was set on a deceitful journey that will not end until the truth is finally revealed and appropriate corrections made.

My best to you and yours, Lew


Why do you think the official LDPCSD water service boundary area map (approved by the California Public Utilities Commission during LDPCSD formation approval) has been missing for over 40 years?

Why was the LDPCSD formed by Mariposa County LAFCO shortly (one month) AFTER the State of California declared Merced River water fully appropriated?

Why do you think the original map filed with the state was a fraud with expanded service areas (which was later corrected with the legitimate map by the State Water Board)?

Why are all public records of LDPCSD annexations prohibited from public viewing and/or acquisition?

Why did the State Water Rights Division repeatedly attempt to close an investigation based solely on erroneous information provided by the actual responsible violator Pete Kampa?

Why were no criminal charges brought against those who attempted to substitute Pete Kampa’s fabricated digital map with the legitimate POU MAP on file with the State Water Board?

Why are laws no longer enforced against intentional criminal acts and conspiracies to violate established law?

Why have I not stopped writing and started that other work?

Maine Doctor Ordered to Undergo Psych Evaluation for Prescribing Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine

Dr. Meryl Nass was hailed a hero by veterans for helping them expose the connection between the military’s mandatory anthrax vaccine and the serious illnesses they were experiencing.

The 70-year old Maine internist has given Congressional testimonies in four states on vaccine efficacies, deciphered scientific studies for courts, and served as an international national consultant on biological warfare and pandemics for more than three decades.

Last month, the Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine suspended Nass’s license and set a string of conditions for her to meet in order for her to get her license back, including undergoing a psychiatric evaluation, releasing a list of every patient she has seen in the past 6 months, and answering more than 25 questions about her medical beliefs, even asking her how she advertises her practices.

Nass, who has been in practice for 41 years, called her suspension “a tyrannical witch hunt.”

“The whole purpose of suspending my license was to scare doctors around the country not to go against the government’s narrative that the COVID vaccine and mask mandates are good,” Nass told The Epoch Times.

Members of the state license board did not return numerous phone calls from The Epoch Times for comment about Nass’s case.

Nass joins doctors and physician assistants in at least 10 states including Kansas, Florida, Hawaii, Washington, Texas, and Arkansas who have had their license suspended or found themselves under investigation by their state’s medical license board.

According to the state’s complaint, the Maine board’s harsh scrutiny of Nass stems specifically from three legal prescriptions she wrote for ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

The patients didn’t complain about the prescription. All recovered from the virus. One complaint came from a Twitter user, another from a hospital doctor, and a third from a midwife associated with the same hospital. The midwife complained about Nass’s prescription of hydroxychloroquine to a pregnant woman.

The board also accused Nass of spreading “misinformation” about the pandemic by way of her personal blog, writing that she posed a “danger to the public.”

Nass certainly does not hold back on her blog. In announcing she would livestream the CDC’s Feb. 4 ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices) hearing, she wrote “the same cast of characters who lie, cheat and befuddle us with the poorest quality federal science ever invented, will be back tomorrow. Don’t miss their weasel words. Watch how they try to turn myocarditis into the mildest malady known to man.”

She added, “Watch how the CDC turns those who have taken the Oath of Hippocrates into robotic Hypocrites who merely want to transform your children into SpikeVax factories.”

According to documents obtained by The Epoch Times, the Maine board originally gave Nass until Feb. 1 to undergo its directive that she undergo a neuropsychological evaluation, which was to be conducted by a psychologist of the board’s choice and paid for by Nass.

“Failure of Dr. Nass to undergo the evaluation as directed constitutes an admission of the allegations against her,” the board wrote in its order.

Nass told The Epoch Times that she has yet to undergo the ordered evaluation or complete any of the other conditions set by the Maine board.

She emphasized that prescribing Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine is not against the law, but the state said it is unethical.

In a joint statement issued last April, The Maine licensing board along with the state Board of Osteopathic Licensure warned that prescribing alternative drugs to prevent or treat COVID-19 “may lead to stockpiling of medication, inappropriate use, and potential drug shortages for patients with a legitimate need” for the medication. They drew the conclusion that “absent acute or emergency circumstances,” prescribing the drugs “is considered unethical and unprofessional conduct” and that “it may also violate applicable Board rules.”

“These are made up policies from nowhere,” Nass told The Epoch Times, “they should be [a] wake up calls to Americans—from local towns to state boards—the government is using them to replace the law and the Constitution.”

Nass said she fears her days as a doctor in Maine are numbered and that she suspects the board’s intentions may be to make sure she can’t get a job as a doctor anywhere else.

Nass told the Epoch Times on Tuesday that she just learned the Maine licensing board has already submitted her name to National Practitioner Database, the Laurie-list version for discredited doctors.

Nass, however, is still a hero at least to some in the northern reaches of Maine where she ran her private practice.

Daniel Lorey, a recently retired hospital clinical social worker who worked closely for many years with Nass at MDI Hospital, recently wrote a letter to the editor published by the Bangor Daily News in which he called Nass an “impeccable MD” with clinical skills “second to none.”

Lorey said Nass prescribed him “life-saving medication” to help him combat COVID-19 last October.

“I am quite convinced that her early interventions and timely prescriptions saved my life and limited my hospitalization to a brief two-hour emergency room visit,” Lorey wrote.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Feb. 7 declared a heightened terrorism threat due to “false and misleading narratives,” misinformation, and “conspiracy theories.”

“The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors,” the DHS bulletin said.

The agency did not say what foreign or domestic actors are responsible for the alleged proliferation of misinformation or disinformation.

“Mass casualty attacks and other acts of targeted violence conducted by lone offenders and small groups acting in furtherance of ideological beliefs and/or personal grievances pose an ongoing threat to the nation,” the DHS continued, adding that some individuals are seeking to “sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions.”

Some individuals, the bulletin alleged, are calling for violence against critical infrastructure, faith-based institutions like churches or synagogues, colleges, government personnel or facilities, and other targets.

As an example of key factors that allegedly contribute to the heightened threat environment, the DHS said there are misleading narratives surrounding COVID-19 and claimed that some individuals have used COVID-19 mandates or vaccines to carry out attacks since 2020. The agency did not elaborate or provide additional evidence for its allegations. The DHS also listed online claims of election fraud as a contributor, and it also did not provide additional details or evidence.

The agency said that “foreign terrorist organizations and domestic threat actors continue to amplify pre-existing false or misleading narratives online to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions. It said violent extremists, including the individual who recently launched an attack against the synagogue in Texas, highlight “the continuing threat of violence based upon racial or religious motivations, as well as threats against faith-based organizations.”

The ISIS terrorist group and its affiliates “may issue public calls for retaliation due to the strike that recently killed ISIS leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi,” the bulletin said. The Biden administration announced last week that al-Qurayshi was killed during a raid in northern Syria.

The bulletin also made note of alleged recent threats to black colleges and universities across the United States.

“Domestic violent extremists have also viewed attacks against U.S. critical infrastructure as a means to create chaos and advance ideological goals, and have recently aspired to disrupt U.S. electric and communications critical infrastructure, including by spreading false or misleading narratives about 5G cellular technology,” the bulletin continued.

The DHS said the heightened threat alert will expire on June 7, 2022.

‘There’s No Law’: Physician Experienced in Investigating Biological Warfare Challenges Medical Board’s Misinformation Allegation

Though Dr. Meryl Nass, a board-certified internal medicine physician, has been untangling narratives of dis- and misinformation long before COVID-19, it wasn’t until recently that her license was temporarily suspended under the allegation that she is now spreading it.

Her research has brought her before Congress and state legislatures to give testimonies on bioterrorism, Gulf War syndrome, and vaccine safety.

Throughout her career, she’s consulted for international health and intelligence agencies regarding prevention, investigation, and mitigation of chemical and biological warfare and pandemics.

She spent three years investigating what had been deemed a naturally occurring anthrax outbreak during Rhodesia’s civil war.

Nass was able to prove that it was due to biological warfare, with her findings published in a 1992 paper that marked a new achievement in scientific research.

“This was important because it was the first time in history potential perpetrators learned they could be identified,” Nass told The Epoch Times. “You couldn’t just start an epidemic somewhere and assume that no one was ever going to prove it because there wasn’t any scientific way to prove that it was done. I established that way.”

She was the main author, along with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (author of “The Real Anthony Fauci”) and Children’s Health Defense, of a citizen’s petition to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and its vaccine advisory committee regarding the authorization of COVID vaccines and why she said they’re not suitable for children.

As censorship and disinformation have thickened around the COVID narrative, Nass has followed and written about the suppression of early-treatment medication such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin.

Given this background, the Maine Medical Board of Licensure nevertheless saw it appropriate to charge Nass—a physician for 41 years—with misinformation, an allegation that came with no explanation as to what misinformation she was spreading.

“Never before has any censorship been imposed by a collection of organizations who are attempting to make law by whining in unison about misinformation with threats to licenses and board certifications—while there is no legal mechanism by which they can strip certification,” Nass said.  “There are no rules, regulations, or laws underpinning the threats of punishment for ‘spreading misinformation.’”

The Maine Medical Board of Licensure didn’t respond to The Epoch Times’ request for comment.


Five matters were reviewed by the board regarding Nass’s suspension.

There are two allegations that she was spreading misinformation.

In addition, a doctor reported that she had treated a patient with ivermectin, while someone else reported that she had prescribed hydroxychloroquine.

In one matter, when asked by the pharmacist why she was prescribing hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, she told the pharmacist that it was to treat Lyme disease.

“By fall, more and more pharmacies were refusing to dispense these medications if you were giving them for COVID, so every time I wrote a prescription for these drugs, the pharmacist would ask why I’m giving it, which they normally didn’t do,” she said. “If I said COVID, they wouldn’t dispense it.”

It was during this time that she was trying to obtain hydroxychloroquine for a high-risk patient.

“So, when the pharmacist called and asked why I was ordering the medication, I told them for Lyme disease, and therefore the patient was able to get the drug,” Nass said. “Five minutes later, I wrote the Maine Medical Board of Licensure and told them that my patients can’t get a potentially life-saving drug unless I tell a white lie, which is unacceptable.”

The board then used this to accuse her of committing “a serious crime.”

“Not a single one of these matters alleges that a patient was harmed or that I did anything illegal, apart from telling a white lie to a pharmacist,” she said.

However, there is another charge to be considered that should be applied to the medical boards, she said, which is inducement.

Inducement is a legal concept alluding to the creation of circumstances that cause someone to have to go against the law to prevent a worse problem.

“And I self-reported it to the board immediately after I did it, asking them to please change their policies so no one would have to be placed in this position again and we could go back to focusing on the care of patients primarily,” Nass said.

Psychological Evaluation

In addition to having her license suspended, Nass must undergo a psychological evaluation to get her license back.

“I guess they claim I’m crazy for prescribing ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine or for writing articles about problems with the vaccine,” Nass said.

By ordering a neuropsychological evaluation, Nass’s name gets sent to a national physician’s database, which she said is the “blackest mark” a doctor can get and makes it impossible for her to get a job or license in another state.

“The other thing it does is it allows all the records that I have sent to the board to enter the public domain, resulting in some of the medical records of my patients being repeated in media reporting on the case,” Nass said.

Nass hadn’t been seeking publicity, however, those records accessed through public domain were now cast into the limelight.

Nass suggested that the evaluation could also be an attempt by the board to punish her for challenging what she called the board’s self-appointed authority to create a new crime—the spreading of misinformation without defining what misinformation is—and charging her with it.

Fraudulent Studies and Media

The vagueness of the allegation shifts with time, as public officials like Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases were at one time stating that one couldn’t contract COVID-19 after being vaccinated, a claim that could currently be classified as misinformation.

Nass cited several instances in which fraudulent studies picked up by media resulted in the manufacturing of misinformation, such when The Lancet medical journal published a May 2020 observational study claiming that hydroxychloroquine significantly increased mortality.

The Lancet report contributed to a widespread stigma surrounding hydroxychloroquine, however, The Lancet later retracted the study.

Nass details how the suppression of hydroxychloroquine was accomplished in her article “How a false hydroxychloroquine narrative was created, and more,” which can be found on her website “Truth in the Age of COVID.”

On ivermectin, she pointed to misinformation generated by Rolling Stone last year.

The magazine sourced a local media outlet that cited Oklahoma physician Jason McElyea who claimed that people overdosing on farm-grade ivermectin were causing emergency rooms to fill up, leaving no room for gunshot victims.

Rolling Stone updated its article after a spokesperson at Northeastern Health System Sequoyah—where McElyea said the overcrowding was taking place—said McElyea hadn’t worked at that location in over two months, and that the hospital hadn’t treated any patients experiencing complications from ivermectin.

‘There’s No Law’

“There’s no law about misinformation,” Nass said. “The First Amendment gives you freedom of speech, and the Fourteenth Amendment specifically prohibits states from abridging those rights that the U.S. Constitution has given.”

Because of this, Nass said, the Maine medical board can’t suddenly enforce a law prohibiting misinformation.

“Also, laws are made in the legislature,” she said. “That’s the purpose of legislatures. And then agencies issue rules and regulations to carry out those laws; however, there is no law or rule on the books at a federal or state level about misinformation in the medical sphere.”

However, a group of non-profit medical organizations began issuing warnings in the fall of 2021, threatening physicians with license suspensions if they spread misinformation about COVID-19.

‘Bloated Nonprofits’

The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), a non-profit organization that Nass said has no regulatory authority, is an organization to which state medical boards pay dues and depend upon for policies and training, Nass said.

In July 2021, FSMB issued this statement warning that physicians “who generate and spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation or disinformation are risking disciplinary action by state medical boards, including the suspension or revocation of their medical license.”

Medical boards such as the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Pharmacists Association followed suit.

“All of these organizations have presidents who earn about a million dollars, so they are what I call bloated nonprofits,” Nass said. “None of them had authority to threaten doctors’ licenses or their specialty certifications.”

After the non-profit organizations applied pressure, 15 of the 70 U.S. state medical boards began investigating their local doctors, Nass said.

The Misinformation Inquisition

In September 2021, the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners adopted FSMB’s statement.

After one board member asked who will determine what constitutes misinformation, a staff member referred to an investigative process that would require the doctor to show proof from “recognized” academic and medical journals that support the doctor’s opinion.

Later, Tennessee state Rep. John Ragan said the board didn’t have the authority to create a new disciplinary offense without lawmakers’ approval.

The board pulled the statement from their website, but the question remained as to whether the board would continue to investigate and charge physicians because some have argued that there isn’t a precedent for the board upholding a policy that was not published on its website.

Ragan, a Republican who is chairman of the Government Operations Committee, the oversight committee for the board, told The Epoch Times that the adopted policy moved out of “the guardrails of the law” and gives the board arbitrary judgment on what misinformation is.

“I explained that if they are going to have a policy on this sometime in the future, they need to define what misinformation and disinformation are because otherwise what you have is the Inquisition,” Ragan said.  “It then becomes a situation of, ‘Heresy is what I say it is, and I’ll know it when I see it kind of thing.’”

In October, the Tennessee legislature passed a bill that emphasized the legislature’s role in drafting laws that establish disciplinary offenses regarding dispensing and prescribing medication for COVID-19.

‘They Have Invented a Law That They Refuse to Define’

While some lawmakers argued that legislators aren’t elected to oversee medically educated boards, Nass argued that the board members and staff are working for the state to assure the safe practice of medicine.

“Their role is to carry out the law, not invent new laws, which is the role of the legislature,” Nass said. “Not only that, they have invented a law that they refuse to define. None of the organizations, like the FSMB or AMA, or state agencies that have threatened or suspended doctors’ licenses, has had the courage to put into writing how they define misinformation and disinformation.”

Nass asked, “Do you want to live in a state that says the law is what we think it is, but we’re not putting it in black and white?”Matt McGregorReporter Follow Matt McGregor covers news from North and South Carolina for The Epoch Times. Send him your story ideas:

Destruction of Traditional Culture Key to Successful Marxist Revolution: James Lindsay

Culture prevented communist revolutions in advanced capitalist societies By Ella Kietlinska and Joshua Philipp February 7, 2022 Updated: February 7, 2022 biggersmallerPrint

Marxist revolutions failed in advanced capitalist countries because people valued their traditional culture, institutions, and values, according to James Lindsay, bestselling author and founder of New Discourses.

Critical race theory is used like “acid” to dissolve American society and break down its critical institutions, Lindsay told EpochTV’s “Crossroads” program.

Marx expected that the communist revolution would begin in advanced capitalist countries, asserting that these societies’ “contradictions would build up so dramatically that the proletariat would awaken and form workers parties that would become a ‘dictatorship of the proletariat’ and lead us into an idealized socialism,” Lindsay explained.

Marx published his “Communist Manifesto” around the mid-19th century but the first communist revolution succeeded only about 70 years later in 1917 in Russia.

“Nowhere in the developed capitalist societies was this happening, but you have peasant Russia which is an aristocratic mode still that’s able to be flipped over by the Bolsheviks,” Lindsay said.

“Same thing happened later in China. China was not an industrial center, it was not an advanced capitalist society, it was a peasant society.”

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) founded in 1920 by Chinese Marxists under the influence of the Soviet Union gained control of China in 1949 and established the most brutal totalitarian communist regime on earth.

The Marxists of the time in the 1910s, 20s, and 30s were examining the situation trying to figure out why Marx’s doctrine failed, Lindsay continued.

They realized that it was the culture that was preventing Marx’s theory from being accepted and successfully implemented in these advanced capitalist societies, Lindsay explained.

Mao Zedong, a CCP leader who ruled communist China from its inception until his death in 1976, was able to undermine the existing proud culture of the Chinese, the author said.

Marxist thinkers came to understand that people considered their Western culture or their Chinese culture with their values sets as being fairly good, and despite being aware of some of its imperfections, did not want to overthrow it, he continued.

“[Marxists] realize that if you can undermine the existing culture and create a break from the existing culture and demonize the existing culture, then you can especially get the younger generations to want to pick up with a whole new program. And that’s the way that you can affect what they call a cultural revolution.”

“Mao called it destroying the four olds,” Lindsay said.

In the 1960s, Mao launched the Cultural Revolution, carried out by fanatical youth encouraged to smash, beat, torture, and murder for the sake of destroying the so-called “four olds”—old customs, old culture, old habits, and old ideas—of China.

The death toll of the Cultural Revolution in China was estimated by many researchers at a minimum of two million, while an American professor R.J. Rummel who researched the mass killing, wrote in his book that the Cultural Revolution claimed the lives of 7.73 million people.

“So you have to poison the institutions.” For example, in America, “you have to make people think all the founding of America was rooted in racism … and that racism is still the organizing principle of the society today,” Lindsay said. This is why the 1619 Project was launched, he added.

The 1619 Project is a series created by New York Times reporter Nikole Sheri Hannah-Jones based on the claim that America was founded in 1619 when a group of 20 Africans, who were considered to be the first enslaved Africans in British America, arrived in the colony of Virginia.

After destroying the old culture, Marxists have to get “the young generation to want to grow up to be a new man in a new society that understands that we aren’t individuals at all,” Lindsay said.

The goal is to have people perceive their “true nature as a social collective, or as a communist kind of person,” he pointed out.

Critical race theory (CRT) takes this whole set of great values that have successfully shaped the West such as punctuality, hard work, Judeo-Christian values of right and wrong transmitted from one generation to the next, and characterize them as toxic whiteness, the author said.

“They put it into a scapegoat bucket and they just relentlessly criticize it until people are ashamed to be associated with it.”

Lindsay, who wrote the book “Race Marxism: The Truth About Political Race Theory and Praxis,” said that critical race theory “is rooted in negative thinking … [and] its goal is a ruthless criticism of all that exists.” It is present across virtually every workplace, he added.

It is based on the Marxist concept of class struggle, which pits two social classes—the bourgeoisie and the proletariat—against each other to divide and conquer. CRT applies this same principle to race, dividing people into oppressors and the oppressed based on their skin color.

It is an offshoot of a Marxist branch of thought known as critical theory developed in the 1930s by a group of Marxist scholars, the founders of the Frankfurt School, first associated with the University of Frankfurt in Germany and later with Columbia University in New York.

Lindsay cited two of the prominent critical theorists of the Frankfurt School, Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno, who said they could not describe a good or positive society but could criticize an existing society.

Once the culture is made “sufficiently toxic, America [becomes] a bad word, we can’t talk about Christopher Columbus … we have to feel a little bit ashamed if we bring up Thomas Jefferson because we know he held slaves,” Marxists try to make people break off from the old culture, Lindsay said.

Then campaigns such as the “Year Zero” carried out by Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge communist regime in the 1970s or Mao’s campaign to eradicate “four olds” can commence.

“Year Zero” was an idea declared by Cambodia’s communist dictator Pol Pot in 1975 to completely destroy the country’s culture including the institution of family and religion and replace it from scratch with a purportedly utopian peasant lifestyle. City dwellers, especially intellectuals, were targeted for persecution and elimination.

As a result of this policy, the Pol Pot regime murdered between 1.4 million and 2.2 million people during four years of its rule—up to one-third of Cambodia’s population at the time.

Lindsay said that the idea of a “Great Reset,” which involves “a whole new culture with a whole new model … [such as] a new economic model like stakeholder capitalism,” also requires breaking off from the old culture.

The “Great Reset” of capitalism is promoted by the World Economic Forum (WEF) and its founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab.

“The changes we have already seen in response to COVID-19 prove that a reset of our economic and social foundations is possible,” Schwab said in June 2020. “The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.”

The Great Reset will harness the innovations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to address health and social challenges among other things, the WEF Chairman explained. “The revolutions occurring in biotechnology and Artificial Intelligence (AI), which are redefining what it means to be human … will compel us to redefine our moral and ethical boundaries.”

Subjective Reality

Reality can be perceived from an objective standpoint or a subjective standpoint, Lindsay said. For people who believe in God, the source of objectivity and the objective truth is God, while others believe the “brute fact of the world” is objectively true, he explained.

“The world is out there and then we are receiving information about the world via our senses, and that we understand the world and make our models of the world as best we can and try to work out the details and get things right. But the world itself is something that we must be humbled before. That’s the objective standpoint.

“The subjective standpoint sees it the other way around, that the world is actually that which we create in our consciousness.”

Some schools of thought assert that a person’s true being is suppressed if their sex assigned at birth doesn’t actually accord with what that person believes their true identity is, the founder of New Discourses continued.

“The fact that that assignment then brings with it all of these restrictions upon how you’re supposed to present, how you’re supposed to act, who you’re supposed to hook up with, or have sex with, or marry, or whatever—all of that is enormous oppression upon you,” Lindsay described how these schools view gender identity.

“[Queer theory] explicitly says that the goal is not to create stable LGBT identities. It is, in fact, to create destabilized identities that are under absolutely no restrictions or no moral shackles of any kind.”

According to these theories, the ideas of a stable, monogamous relationship to raise the children, that children are supposed to be regarded as innocent and therefore non-sexualized, are just fictions that oppress people and have been created by people to maintain this system, so people need to liberate themselves from these artificial social relations and self-imposed limits, the author said.

“What that amounts to is the absolute destruction of morality,” Lindsay concluded.Ella KietlinskaReporter Follow Ella Kietlinska is a reporter for The Epoch Times focusing on U.S. and world politics.

CDC Signals Changes to COVID-19 Vaccine Schedule, in Part to Address Heart Inflammation

By Zachary Stieber February 6, 2022 Updated: February 6, 2022 biggersmallerPrint

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Feb. 4 outlined an expected change to the COVID-19 vaccine schedule for people with weak immune systems and signaled that a different alteration is coming for the general population to try to cut the number of post-vaccination heart inflammation cases.

The CDC told its vaccine advisory panel that it’s planning to adjust guidance for people with compromised immune systems, a group that doesn’t respond as well to vaccines as the general population and is the only population that is advised to get four doses of the Moderna or Pfizer messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines.

Current CDC guidance for the immunocompromised says they should receive three doses of an mRNA vaccine within two months, and a fourth dose at least five months after the third dose.

The revised schedule would recommend the population get that fourth shot as soon as three months after their third one.

For recipients in the population who received the single-shot Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, the updated guidance says they should get a second dose at least 28 days after their vaccination, and a third dose as soon as two months later.

The guidance update applies to people 18 and older who received the Johnson & Johnson or Moderna vaccines, and people 12 and up who received the Pfizer jab.

The rationale for the adjustment includes small studies that indicate the immunocompromised are better protected if they get the fourth shot sooner, Elisha Hall, a health education specialist at the CDC, told the panel, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

The goal is “to help this population that may not be as well protected get their booster dose sooner, particularly with concerns about initial immune response, loss of protection over time, and high community transmission due to the Omicron variant,” she said.

Omicron is the dominant variant of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus in the United States. The CCP virus causes COVID-19.

The vaccines already were waning in protection over time against infection while the Delta variant was dominant in the country, and have performed even worse against the Omicron strain.

Dr. Camille Kotton, an infectious disease expert at Massachusetts General Hospital and a panel member, said she had seen many immunocompromised patients in the past two months who “followed all the rules,” including the recommended vaccination schedule, but still became infected with the virus.

The updated guidance “will help dramatically,” she said.

The other likely change would apply to the general public and deals with the length of time that elapses between the first and second shot of the mRNA vaccines. Both have a two-dose primary schedule.

At present, the second Pfizer dose is recommended around 21 days after the first, and the second Moderna dose is recommended around 28 days after the initial shot. However, surveillance data show that among many age groups, particularly young males, who have received the vaccines, there has been a higher than expected rate of heart inflammation.

Data from Canada and England, which have both extended the interval, suggest an extended time period between the first and second doses increased vaccine effectiveness and lowered rates of myocarditis and pericarditis, two forms of heart inflammation that have cropped up following mRNA vaccination.

“The longer interval resulted in lower myocarditis rates, whereas the shorter interval had higher myocarditis and pericarditis rates,” said Dr. Bryna Warshawsky of the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Dr. Grace Lee, a medical officer at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and the advisory panel’s chair, said the data presented “are fairly convincing that an extended interval is not only potentially safer from a myocarditis standpoint, but also potentially more effective.”

The data pertain to when Delta was the dominant variant in much of the world. Omicron displaced Delta in December 2021 in the United States.

Some countries have halted or curtailed the use of the mRNA vaccines, particularly Moderna’s, among youths due to the heart inflammation issues, but U.S. health authorities have so far continued to recommend the shots for all Americans 5 and older, asserting the vaccines prevent more hospitalizations than the heart inflammation cases they cause.

The panel’s COVID-19 vaccines working group, after analyzing altered vaccine schedules from various countries, endorsed an interval of eight weeks between the first and second dose of an mRNA vaccine primary series. The CDC hasn’t yet decided whether to follow the advice.

If changed, the revised schedule could affect millions of people. Some 33 million Americans aged 12 to 39 remain unvaccinated, as well as tens of millions of Americans in older age groups. It would also push back booster shots, which are currently recommended five months after the Moderna or Pfizer primary series, and two months after the initial Johnson & Johnson shot.

Dr. Walid Gellad, a professor of medicine at the University of Pittsburgh, called the expected change “a big deal.”

At the same time, it is “troubling” that it “took so long for US policymaking to catch up to other countries,” Gellad, who is not on the panel, wrote on Twitter.

Panel members said they hoped the change would help convince unvaccinated people to get a jab.

“I think that it affords a level of safety and also demonstrates to the public that we are very focused on doing this in the right way,” said Dr. Oliver Brooks, chief medical officer of Watts HealthCare Corp.

‘Tainted’ Blood: Covid Skeptics Request Blood Transfusions From Unvaccinated Donors


By JoNel Aleccia August 17, 2021

The nation’s roiling tensions over vaccination against covid-19 have spilled into an unexpected arena: lifesaving blood transfusions.

This story also ran on The Daily Beast. It can be republished for free.

With nearly 60% of the eligible U.S. population fully vaccinated, most of the nation’s blood supply is now coming from donors who have been inoculated, experts said. That’s led some patients who are skeptical of the shots to demand transfusions only from the unvaccinated, an option blood centers insist is neither medically sound nor operationally feasible.

“We are definitely aware of patients who have refused blood products from vaccinated donors,” said Dr. Julie Katz Karp, who directs the blood bank and transfusion medicine program at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals in Philadelphia.

Emily Osment, an American Red Cross spokesperson, said her organization has fielded questions from clients worried that vaccinated blood would be “tainted,” capable of transmitting components from the covid vaccines. Red Cross officials said they’ve had to reassure clients that a covid vaccine, which is injected into muscle or the layer of skin below, doesn’t circulate in the blood.

“While the antibodies that are produced by the stimulated immune system in response to vaccination are found throughout the bloodstream, the actual vaccine components are not,” Jessa Merrill, the Red Cross director of biomedical communications, said in an email.

So far, such demands have been rare, industry officials said. Dr. Louis Katz, chief medical officer for ImpactLife, an Iowa-based blood center, said he’s heard from “a small handful” of patients asking for blood from unvaccinated donors. And the resounding answer from centers and hospitals, he added, has been “no.”

“I know of no one who has acceded to such a request, which would be an operational can of worms for a medically unjustifiable request,” Katz wrote in an email.

In practical terms, blood centers have only limited access to donated blood that has not in some way been affected by covid. Based on samples, Katz estimated that as much as 60% to 70% of the blood currently being donated is coming from vaccinated donors. Overall, more than 90% of current donors have either been infected with covid or vaccinated against it, said Dr. Michael Busch, director of the Vitalant Research Institute, who is monitoring antibody levels in samples from the U.S. blood supply.

“Less than 10% of the blood we collect does not have antibodies,” Busch noted.

In addition, outside of research studies, blood centers in the U.S. don’t retain data noting whether donors have been infected with or vaccinated against covid, and there’s no federal requirement that collected blood products be identified in that manner.

“The Food and Drug Administration has determined there’s no safety risk, so there’s no reason to label the units,” said Dr. Claudia Cohn, chief medical officer for AABB, a nonprofit focused on transfusion medicine and cellular therapies.

Indeed, the FDA does not recommend routine screening of blood donors for covid. Respiratory viruses, in general, aren’t known to spread by blood transfusion and, worldwide, there have been no reported cases of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the disease, being transmitted via blood. One study identified the risk as “negligible.”

All donors are supposed to be healthy when they give blood and answer basic questions about potential risks. Collected units of blood are tested for transmissible infectious diseases before they’re distributed to hospitals.

But that hasn’t quelled concerns for some people skeptical of covid vaccines.

In Bedford, Texas, the father of a boy scheduled for surgery recently asked that his son get blood exclusively from unvaccinated donors, said Dr. Geeta Paranjape, medical director at Carter BloodCare. Separately, a young mother fretted about transfusions from vaccinated donors to her newborn.

Many patients expressing concerns have been influenced by rampant misinformation about vaccines and the blood supply, said Paranjape. “A lot of people think there’s some kind of microchip or they’re going to be cloned,” she said.

Other patients have balked at getting blood from people previously infected with covid, even though federal guidance greenlights donations two weeks after a positive test or the last symptom fades.

Last month, a woman facing a cesarean section for a high-risk pregnancy said she didn’t want blood from a donor who had had covid, recalled Cohn with AABB. “I said, ‘Listen, the alternative is you don’t get the blood and that’s what will affect you,’” Cohn said.

Some industry experts were hesitant to discuss the vaccine-free blood requests, for fear it would fuel more such demands. But Cohn and others said correcting widely spread misinformation outweighed the risk.

Patients are free to refuse transfusions for any reason, industry officials said. But in dire situations — trauma, emergency surgery — saving lives often requires using the available blood. For patients with chronic conditions requiring transfusion, alternative treatments such as medication or certain equipment may not be as efficient or effective.

People who require transfusions also may donate their own blood in advance or request donations from designated friends and family members. But there’s no evidence that the blood is safer when patients select donors than that provided by the volunteer blood system, according to the Red Cross.

Earlier in the pandemic, many blood donations were tested to see whether they contained antibodies to the covid virus. The hope was that blood from previously infected people who had recovered from covid could be used to treat those who were very sick with the disease. Tens of thousands of patients were treated with so-called convalescent plasma under a Mayo Clinic-led program and through authorization from the FDA.

But the much-hyped use of convalescent plasma largely fell flat after studies showed no clear-cut benefits for the broad swath of covid patients. (Research continues into the potential benefits of treating narrowly targeted patient groups with high-potency plasma.) Most hospitals stopped testing blood and labeling units with high levels of antibodies this spring, said Busch. “It’s really no longer a germane issue because we’re not testing anymore,” he said. “There’s no way we can inform recipients.”

Busch stressed that the studies also have shown no harm associated with infusing antibody-containing blood plasma into covid patients.

Past health crises have raised similar concerns about sources of donor blood. In the mid-1980s, recipients scared by the AIDS epidemic didn’t want blood donated from cities such as San Francisco with large gay populations, Busch recalled. Even now, some recipients demand not to receive blood from people of certain races or ethnicities.

Such requests, like those for vaccine-free blood, have no medical or scientific basis and are soundly refused, blood center officials said.

The most pressing issue for blood centers remains the ongoing shortage of willing donors. As of the second week of August, the national blood supply was down to two days’ worth or less at a third of sites affiliated with America’s Blood Centers. That can limit the blood available for trauma victims, surgery patients and others who rely on transfusions to survive.

“If for some reason we didn’t want vaccinated people to donate blood, we’d be in a real problem, wouldn’t we?” Karp said. “Please believe us when we tell you it’s fine.”

Joseph Mercola February 7, 2022 Updated: February 7, 2022 biggersmallerPrint


In a non-peer-reviewed research paper just this week published, Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., describes a mechanism of the COVID shots that results in the suppression of your innate immune system. It does this by inhibiting the type-1 interferon pathway.

In this interview, return guest Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., a senior research scientist at MIT who has been at MIT for over five decades, discusses her latest paper, “Innate Immune Suppression by SARS-CoV-2 mRNA Vaccinations. The Role of G-quadruplexes, Exosomes and MicroRNAs,” co-written with Dr. Peter McCullough, along with two other authors, Dr. Greg Nigh and Dr. Anthony Kyriakopoulos.

Previously, Nigh and Seneff co-wrote an entire paper detailing the differences between the spike protein and the COVID jab spike protein. In a non-peer-reviewed research paper just this week published on the pre-print service authorea, they and their other co-authors delve deeply into the mechanisms of the COVID shots, showing how they absolutely, in no way, shape or form, are safe or effective. The shots actually suppress your innate immune system.

“I think McCullough is fantastic and I’m so happy to have him collaborate with me,” Seneff says. “I really hope we will be able to find a journal that is willing to publish it. We may have to seek some kind of alternative media to get it published.

It’s really incredible the amount of censorship that’s going on right now. I’m in a state of shock all the time. I just keep thinking it’s not going to get any worse, and it’s truly going to get better, and it just seems to keep on getting worse and worse.

I don’t know where the end is. It’s very discouraging … Pharma has so much money behind [them] and they’ve got it all set up to make sure that nothing gets past them …

We’re hoping to put it up as a preprint, but … remarkably, they can reject it at the level of preprint as well. We’re working on that angle, but it’s not easy. When you’re writing something this radical, they really fight hard to keep it off the web.”

On Jan. 16, 2022, the pre-print service Authorea published this paper on its web site, assigning it a DOI, thus making it official.

Exceptionally Strong Safety Signals

As noted by Seneff, when you look at the various databases for adverse effects, you can see an exceptionally strong safety signal—and the COVID shot developers know that. “The numbers are out of sight,” Seneff says, and this goes for all levels of side effects, from mild to catastrophic.

Seneff has been looking at the cancer data, for example, and on average, there are twice as many reports of cancer following the COVID shots compared to all other vaccines combined over the last 31 years.

“It’s just amazing, because it’s overall two times [higher]. Breast cancer, for example, is three times [higher] for these vaccines in one year, as they are for all the other vaccines for 31 years. It’s a hugely strong signal,” Seneff says.

“Lymphoma is also showing up much more frequently with these [COVID shots]. There’s just an amazing signal there in VAERS [the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System].”

The fact that the signal is that strong is even more remarkable when you consider that most people don’t think the COVID shot could be a variable in their cancer emergence, so they never report it. “It puzzles me that they’re willing to do such damage to the health of the whole population of the world. I don’t understand that degree of evilness,” Seneff says.

Type-1 Interferon Disruption

The shots suppress your innate immune system by inhibiting type-1 interferon. One of the first studies to tip off Seneff and McCullough to this was an Indian study, in which human cells grown in a culture were exposed to the DNA nanoparticles that instruct them to make SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, much like the COVID shots do.

The cell strain is called HEK-293. These are cells that were taken from the kidneys of an aborted fetus in the 1980s and are frequently used in research. While taken from the kidneys, these cells have neuron-like properties. When programmed to make spike protein, these cells release that spike protein inside exosomes — lipid nanoparticles inside which the spike protein is packaged.

Exosomes act as a communication network for cells. When a cell is under stress, it releases exosomes containing some of the molecules that are stressing it. So, in the case of the COVID shots, the exosomes contain spike protein and microRNA. MicroRNAs are signaling molecules that are able to influence cell function. They cause the cell to change its behavior or metabolism. Typically, they do this by suppressing certain enzymes.

The Indian study found two specific microRNAs inside the exosomes released by these neuron-like cells: miR-148a and miR-590. The researchers then exposed microglia (immune cells in your brain) to these exosomes. So, as explained by Seneff, you’ve got neurons in your brain producing spike protein, or taking up spike protein that is in circulation, and reacting to it by releasing exosomes.

The exosomes are then picked up by microglia, the immune cells in your brain. When the immune cells receive those exosomes, they turn on an inflammatory response. This is primarily a response to those microRNAs, the miR-148a and miR-590. Of course, you also have the toxic spike protein there.

Combined, they cause inflammation in the brain, which damages neurons. This inflammation, in turn, can contribute to a number of degenerative brain disorders. The lipid particles in the COVID shot, which contain the mRNA, are similar to exosomes, but not identical. They’re also very similar to low-density lipid (LDL) particles.

“I think the exosomes are probably quite a bit smaller. The vaccine particles are bigger. They’re more like an LDL particle. The vaccine particles have cholesterol in their membrane, and they have lipoprotein. So, they’re made to look like an LDL particle.

But then they throw in this cationic lipid, which is really, really toxic — a synthetic cationic lipid that makes it positively charged. Experimentally, they’ve found that this lipid, when the particle is taken up by the cell, is released into the cytoplasm, [where] that mRNA then makes spike protein.

[The COVID shots] are very cleverly designed, both in terms of protecting the RNA from getting broken down, and in terms of making the RNA be very efficient at making spike protein. It’s very different from the mRNA that the virus makes, even though it codes for the same protein.”

Seneff wrote an entire paper detailing the differences between the viral spike protein and the COVID jab spike protein, together with Greg Nigh, which was published in the International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice and Research in May 2021. It basically serves as a primer for understanding what we discuss here. Two microRNAs, miR-148a and miR-590—excreted in the exosomes along with the spike protein—significantly disrupt the type-1 interferon response in any cell, including immune cells.

Getting back to the Indian paper cited above, they found that the microglia ended up producing inflammation in the brain, and the two microRNAs were central in this process. The miR-148a and miR-590 were put into those exosomes with the spike protein, and these two microRNAs are able to significantly disrupt the type-1 interferon response in any cell, including immune cells.

Type-1 interferon also keeps latent viruses like herpes and varicella (which causes shingles) viruses in check, so if your interferon pathway is suppressed, these latent viruses can also start to emerge. The VAERS database reveals many who have been jabbed do report these kinds of infections. Suppressed interferon also raises your risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Type-1 Interferon Response Is Crucial in Viral Infections

As explained by Seneff, the type-1 interferon response is absolutely crucial as the first-stage response to a viral infection. When a cell is invaded by a virus, it releases type-1 interferon alpha and type-1 interferon beta. They act as signaling molecules that tell the cell that it’s been infected.

That, in turn, launches the immune response and gets it going early in the viral infection. It’s been shown that people who end up with severe SARS-CoV-2 infection have a compromised type-1 interferon response. As noted by Seneff:

“It’s ironic that the vaccines are being given to protect you from COVID, yet, they produce a situation where your immune cells are ill-equipped to fight SARS-CoV-2 if it gets into the cell. The trick is, the vaccine produces a tremendous antibody response, and that’s typical of severe disease.

So, the [COVID shot] fools your immune system into thinking that you’ve had a severe case of COVID. It’s really interesting that way, because it’s gotten past the mucosal barrier of the lungs, it’s gotten past the vascular barrier of the blood, into the muscle. Also, it’s been disguised.

The RNA doesn’t look like a virus RNA, it looks like a human RNA molecule. Part of the modifications [made to the mRNA in the jab] was to make it very sturdy, so it can’t be broken down. It’s also very good at making [spike] protein fast, which also has a problem because it leads to a lot of errors, which is another issue …

The immune cells take up the nanoparticles and carry them through the lymph system into the spleen. Multiple studies have shown that it ends up in the spleen … the ovaries, the liver, the bone marrow … The spleen, of course, is very important for producing antibodies.”

Importantly, the antibody response you get from the COVID shot is exponentially higher than what you get from natural infection, and research has shown that the level of antibody response rises with disease severity. So, the shot basically mimics severe infection. In mild infection, you may not produce any antibodies at all, because the innate immune cells are strong enough to fight off the infection without them.

It’s when your innate immune system is weak that you get into trouble, and part of that weakness is a suppressed type-1 interferon response. If your type-1 interferon response is deficient, your immune cells are not very capable of stopping the spread of the virus in your body.

According to Seneff, the reason type-1 interferon supplementation has not been recommended thus far is because you have to time it perfectly in order for the immune cascade to function properly. Type-1 interferon plays a definitive role only at the very earliest stage of the infection. Once you’ve entered a moderate or severe infection stage, it’s too late to use it.

COVID Shots Confuse Your Immune System

As noted by Seneff, the COVID shots are so unnatural that your immune system doesn’t quite know what to do anymore.

“My impression is that the immune cells don’t know what the hell’s going on. There’s this toxic protein being produced in massive amounts by the immune cells. That’s extremely unusual. There’s no sign of any kind of viral infection because these RNAs look like human RNAs.

It’s as if the human immune cells suddenly decided to make a really toxic protein, and make lots of it — which is exactly what they’re doing — and the immune system is completely baffled by this. The immune cells have no clue what to do with it.

Of course, these immune cells that are overloaded with all this spike protein, they say, ‘I’ve got to get rid of this stuff,’ so they ship it out as these exosomes. The microRNAs [in the exosomes] think that the recipient cells are going to need those particular signaling molecules to help it do whatever it needs to do to cope with this toxic load.

So, you’re spreading the spike protein around to the rest of the body, just to dissipate the toxicity you’re coping with in the spleen, I think. Those exosomes are also very good for training antibodies. There was a nice paper that showed the exosomes being released [have] spike protein in their membrane, the exterior of the exosome.

It’s quite cool that the spike protein is displayed there, because this allows the immune cells — the B-cells and the T-cells that need to get up close and personal to it — to figure out how to shape their antibodies. The antibodies get shaped to match the toxic protein that’s exposed on the surface of the exosomes.

After something like 14 days of the second [jab], the exosomes induced an antibody response. [The researchers] felt the exosomes played a critical role in this extreme antibody response that was produced by the B-cells and the T-cells, the adaptive immune system.

But I think the way the vaccine works is that there’s no game that you can choose other than to make antibodies. It’s the only way you can fight this. It’s a toxic protein that’s being produced and released by these immune cells, and the only thing you can do to stop it is to make antibodies.

They try to make lots and lots of antibodies that will glue onto those toxic spike proteins and block them from being able to get in through the ACE2 receptor. That’s the job of the antibodies. They do a good job of it, initially … It’s true that they do protect you from disease. Unfortunately, the antibody levels drop pretty dramatically, pretty quickly.”

There are also antibodies that enhance disease rather than fight it, and the level of these antibodies declines at a slower pace than the protective antibodies. So, after a number of months you end up with a NEGATIVE immune response. In other words, you’re now more prone to infection than ever before. As explained by Seneff:

“There’s a crossover point at which the enhancing antibodies can be stronger than the protective antibodies, and that’s when you can get this antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) that people have seen in the past with [other] coronavirus vaccines. We’re still trying to see if that’s the case with [the COVID jabs]. There is some evidence here and there, but it’s not [conclusive yet].”

The Importance of Cytotoxic T-Cells

After the India study tipped off Seneff and McCullough to the interferon problem, they came across a Chinese study that tracked the effect of the COVID jab on the immune system over time. Here, they discovered that the infection caused an increase in CD8+ T-cells, important cytotoxic T-cells that actually remove infected cells.

As noted by Seneff, the CD8+ cells are an important part of the defense against SARS-CoV-2. Importantly, CD8+ T-cells were enhanced in response to natural infection, but not in response to the COVID shot. They too found type-1 interferon suppression post-jab. So, in the aftermath of the jab, not only is your first-line response depressed—the type-1 interferon response—but you’re also missing the part of the immune response that cleans away infected cells.

The microRNA That Influences Myocarditis Risk

A third microRNA (mRNA) created by natural SARS-CoV-2 infection is miR-155, and it plays an important role in heart health. Early on in the pandemic, there were reports of COVID-19 causing heart problems.

Seneff suspects the miR-155-containing exosomes may also be present post-jab, and may play a role in the heart damage that’s being reported. Specifically, miR-155 is associated with myocarditis. As mentioned earlier, microRNA suppresses certain proteins that then cause a complicated cascade response. When a particular protein that is a critical player gets suppressed by a microRNA, then a whole different cascade takes place.

Why Autoimmune Problems May Arise Post-Jab

The antibodies produced by the jab also have several short peptide sequences in them that have previously been found in several human cells that are related to autoimmune disease. Seneff explains:

“Kanduc has written a lot about this. She’s an expert on these antibodies … The [SARS-CoV-2] spike protein is very overlapped with human protein. That means when you build a really strong antibody response to the spike protein, those antibodies can get confused and they can attack a human protein that has a similar sequence.

That’s a classic form of autoimmune disease. It’s called molecular mimicry. There were many different proteins that matched. It was quite surprising … It seems to be very well designed to induce autoimmune disease, if you produce antibodies to those sequences in the spike protein.”

Neurological Problems in Women

The shots are also tightly associated with neurological problems such as uncontrollable tremors and shaking. Curiously, this side effect disproportionally affects women. The mechanism here again involves the exosomes. Seneff explains:

“I feel there’s a very strong signal for the idea, which I’m pushing, that you have those immune cells in the spleen making spike protein and releasing it in exosomes. It’s been shown in studies on Parkinson’s disease that those exosomes travel along nerve fibers.

They’ll go along the splanchnic nerve, they’ll hook up with the vagus nerve, they’ll go up to the brain and get into all these different nerves in the brain. When you look at the VAERS database, you see tremendous signals for all kinds of things that suggest different nerves are being inflamed.

For example, there are 12,000 cases of tinnitus associated with the COVID-19 vaccine, and that’s only what’s reported. Tinnitus is a strong signal. Tinnitus is going to be inflammation of the auditory nerve. This means you have to go all the way from the spleen, up the vagus nerve, and then connect to the auditory nerve to cause tinnitus.

Then you have Bell’s palsy, which is inflammation of the facial nerve. You have migraine headache. There are over 8,000 cases of migraine headache, which is linked to an inflammation of the trigeminal nerve.

It probably also goes, I suspect, along the nerve fibers of the spinal column, which may be causing some of these cases where they’re finding paralysis. People have a lot of mobility issues connected with these vaccines.

I see the possibility of causing a lot of disturbances to the myelin sheath, and we talk about that in the paper. It involves, again, complex signaling. You can get to the myelin sheath problem through the type-1 interferon disruption.

That, again, involves something called interferon response factor 9 IRF9. This protein triggers the production of sulfatide in the liver, and this protein gets suppressed by these microRNAs that I mentioned earlier.”

Sulfatide, an important lipid carrier, is the only sulfonated lipid in the human body. Your liver makes most of the sulfatide, which is then carried by your platelets (blood cells) to other areas in your body. The myelin sheath contains high amounts of sulfatide. It’s part of what protects the myelin sheath. In demyelinating diseases, that sulfatide erodes, ultimately allowing the myelin to be attacked.

Seneff believes the COVID jab results in significant myelin damage, thanks to these inflammatory exosomes. This damage does not necessarily show up right away, although some jab recipients experience acutely devastating effects. It could take 10 years or more before a demyelinating disease sets in.

“I think we’re going to see people getting these neurodegenerative diseases earlier and earlier in life than they used to,” Seneff says, “and I think anybody who already has any of these diseases is going to have accelerated progression.”

We May Soon See an Explosion of Parkinson’s Cases

Disturbingly, loss of smell and dysphagia, the inability to swallow, are both signs of Parkinson’s disease, and both of these conditions are being reported post-jab by the thousands. So, in years to come, we could be looking at an explosion of Parkinson’s.

“Parkinson’s studies have shown that you can get pathogens in the gut that produce a prion-like protein, which is what the spike protein is. The immune cells then take it up and take it to the spleen. This, of course, causes stress.

A stressed immune cell in the spleen upregulates and produces more alpha-synuclein. Alpha-synuclein is a molecule that fights infection, and that’s the molecule that misfolds in association with Parkinson’s disease.

I’m fascinated with all of these molecules that are prion-like. There’s the prion protein itself, which is associated with CJD, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, but then there’s the alpha-synuclein and amyloid beta, there’s TDP-43, which is associated with ALS.

All of those diseases are overrepresented in the VAERS database for the COVID shots, compared to all the other vaccines combined over 31 years. It’s just completely out of line.

There are 58 cases of Alzheimer’s in association with the COVID vaccines, and 13 in association with all the other vaccines over 31 years. That’s several times more — 58 versus 13.

CJD is also much more common. It’s almost seven times as common in the COVID vaccine cases. CJD is a terrible disease. You get very crippled and die after a few years. That’s the classic prion protein [disease]. It’s extremely rare. Only 1 in 1 million gets CJD.

There was a person who contacted me from France whose wife got CJD just a few weeks after the second vaccine. He was absolutely convinced the vaccine caused it. There are actually 27 cases [of CJD] reported in VAERS for the COVID-19 vaccines, against only four cases over the entire history of all other vaccines combined.”

Health Problems We Can Expect to See More Of

In time, Seneff predicts we’ll see a dramatic increase in infections and cancers of all types, autoimmune diseases, neurodegenerative diseases and reproductive issues. As mentioned, research has demonstrated that the spike protein accumulates in the spleen and women’s ovaries.

Without doubt, inflammation in the ovaries is not a good thing. Men also report swollen testes, and that could be indicative of inflammation as well. Preliminary data show women who get the jab within the first 20 weeks of pregnancy have a miscarriage rate of 82% to 91%. There are also VAERS reports describing fetal damage. Of course, it could also impair future fertility.

As described earlier, some antibodies produced by the jab can react to human proteins. One protein that is similar to the spike protein that the antibodies attack is syncytin, which is essential for the fertilization of the egg. The concern is that the antibodies might attack and destroy syncytin, thereby disrupting and preventing implantation in the placenta.

Omicron—A Blessing in Disguise?

The jabs also perpetuate COVID, with ever-new variants of the virus.

“In the first paper that Greg and I wrote, we predicted the vaccines would cause an increased emergence of variants of spike protein, altered versions of the virus, under the pressure of the vaccine,” Seneff says.

“Indeed, it looks to me like that’s what’s happening. But I’m really hopeful with Omicron, because Omicron looks like it’s a milder virus, but incredibly infectious. It’ll flash through the population and give everybody, essentially, a vaccine. It’s kind of like a natural vaccine, I think.

[Research] showed that … having had Omicron, you were protected, to some extent, from Delta. Delta’s disappearing anyway, because Omicron is chasing it out. It’s really great. I think Omicron is God’s gift from heaven.”

That blessing may be canceled out in those who have received multiple COVID jabs, however. Each dose erodes your immune response, such that it becomes increasingly compromised with each jab. Again, this has to do with the suppression of type-1 interferon, discussed earlier.

What Catalyzes Damage in Athletes?

More than 400 cases of serious heart problems and death have also been reported among professional athletes, who are some of the healthiest people on the planet. What mechanism can account for this phenomenon? How is it that the COVID jabs can cause enough damage to take out young people with optimized biology?

Seneff suspects that being fit might cause you to have more ACE2 receptors in the heart, and the S1 portion of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein binds to the ACE2 receptor. She believes the spike protein is being delivered to the heart via exosomes, by way of the vagus nerve, and, again, the miR-155 exosome is associated with heart problems.

Additionally, when the S1 spike protein binds to the ACE2 receptor, it disables the receptor. When you disable ACE2, you get an increase in ACE, which causes high blood pressure and elevates angiotensin 2. When angiotensin 2 is overexpressed, you can get intense inflammation in the heart. If you’re engaging in intense exertion and your heart is inflamed, you can trigger cardiac arrest, which is what we see in many of these athlete cases. They’re collapsing on the field.


Another focus of Seneff’s and McCullough’s paper is something called G4 or G-quadruplexes.

“G-quadruplexes are really fascinating, and I don’t have a handle on them at all,” Seneff says. “It’s hard biology, even harder than a lot of the other stuff that I’ve been reading …

G4s are basically an arrangement of [guanines]. Guanines are one of the four nucleotides that make up DNA or RNA. Guanine is the G in the G4. What happens is that a sequence of nucleotides on a DNA or an RNA string can fold in on itself and form G-quadruplexes. It’s four guanines, at different places on the protein, winding back around and sticking together.

There’s a metal in the middle — often potassium or calcium — that helps to stabilize these G4s. The interesting thing about them is that they make the water around them structured. They make gelled water [aka exclusion zone (EZ) water] …

Those G4s can form in the DNA, and that actually keeps it from becoming active. [The DNA] doesn’t get converted into RNA, and it doesn’t make protein if it has those G4s. Probably, the EZ water doesn’t allow anything to get close. Think of it as being stuck in a gel.

There are a lot of G4s in the promoter regions of these DNA sequences, and there are lots of proteins that have these G4s in their promoter region. Interestingly, there are certain proteins that can unravel them. There are proteins that can bind to them and cause the G4 to undo, and that activates or allows the protein to be expressed.

It’s a regulatory element that controls which proteins get to be expressed from the DNA. Many of the proteins that have these G4s in their promoter are cancer oncogenes. As long as they stay gelled, they’re inactive, but if they become ungelled, they become active.

It turns out that prion proteins … [are] made from RNA, and the RNA has these G4s. The protein can bind to the G4s in the RNA and both of them react. The theory is that the protein becomes prion-like. These prion proteins have two ways to be, one is safe and one is not safe, and the G4s increase the risk for prion protein misfolding.

The presence of those G4s, and the meeting with those G4s, increases the risk of misfolding in the prion-like configuration.9 The interesting thing about that is that spike protein is a prion-like protein. The RNA they built for the [COVID jab], they did something called codon optimization, which involved putting a lot more guanines into the RNA than [found] in the original [virus]. They enhanced the guanine.

Enhancing the guanine means increasing the number of G4s, which means increasing the risk of the spike protein misfolding into a prion like protein. I think that the G4s increase the risk, the danger of spike protein [acting] as a prion-like protein.

But we don’t really know what the consequence of having all these G4 RNAs in the cytoplasm will be. We have massive numbers of these RNAs sitting there with their G4s. What is that going to do to the rest of the G4 regulatory process? We do not know. Nobody knows. Nobody has a clue.”


To summarize the central point of Seneff’s latest paper, the COVID jab causes alpha interferon suppression, which weakens your immune system. Indeed, regulators in the European Union are now warning that repeat COVID shots can weaken overall immunity.

The primary mechanism is the impairment of alpha interferon response, which is essential for the proper activation of your innate immune system, your cellular immunity, mostly your T-cells and killer cells. When functioning properly, the cell launches the type-1 interferon response as soon as it’s infected with a virus.

It triggers the immune cells to come in, kill the virus and remove the debris. This activates the humoral component of your immune system, the antibody production, which takes longer. (That’s why they say you are not protected until 14 days after the injection.)

How is type-1 interferon suppressed by the jab? It’s suppressed because type-1 interferon responds to viral RNA, and viral RNA is not present in the COVID shot. The RNA is modified to look like human RNA molecule, so the interferon pathway is not triggered. Worse, the interferon pathway is actively suppressed by the large number of spike proteins produced from the mRNA in the shot, and by the microRNAs in the exosomes released by the stressed immune cells.

EXCLUSIVE: Pentagon Responds to DoD Whistleblowers’ Claim of Spiking Disease Rates in the Military After COVID Vaccine Mandate

By Enrico Trigoso February 4, 2022 Updated: February 5, 2022 biggersmallerPrint

Three United States military doctors have blown the whistle on documents allegedly from The United States Department of Defense (DoD) that they had access to, which show “skyrocketing rates of disease” since the introduction and mandating of the CCP virus vaccines in armed forces, human rights attorney Leigh Dundas told The Epoch Times.

Dundas was recently approached by Dr. Samuel Sigoloff, Special Forces flight surgeon Lt. Col. Peter Chambers, and Aerospace occupational medicine specialist Lt. Col. Theresa Long.

They handed documents to Dundas, who appeared recently with attorney Tom Renz in a five-hour hearing organized by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) titled “COVID-19: Second Opinion.”

Renz shared some of the numbers related to medical disorders in the U.S. military data with The Epoch Times.

The whistleblowers, who are represented by Renz, gave him the data “under penalty of perjury,” he said during the hearing.

Renz intends to submit the information to the courts, he told Johnson.

The DoD responded that the DMED (Defense Medical Epidemiology Database) data from 2016 to 2020 that the whistleblowers brought up was erroneous and incomplete, and is currently under review.

“DHA’s Armed Forces Surveillance Division (AFSD) conducted a complete review of the data contained in the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) and found that the data was incorrect for the years 2016-2020,” Maj. Charlie Dietz, a spokesperson for the DoD, told The Epoch Times.

“DMED is a web-based tool to query de-identified active component personnel and medical event data contained within the Defense Medical Surveillance System (DMSS).

“Comparing the DMED database to the source data contained in DMSS, AFHSD discovered that the total number of medical diagnoses from 2016-2020 that were accessible in DMED represented only a small fraction of actual medical diagnoses for those years. In contrast, the 2021 total number of medical diagnoses were up to date in DMED.  Comparison of 2021 to 2016-2020 resulted in the appearance of significant increased occurrence of all medical diagnoses in 2021 because of the under-reported data for 2016-2020. AFHSD has taken DMED offline to identify and correct the root-cause of the data corruption,” Dietz said.

Renz responded: “The DoD has claimed that the DMED data from the years 2016-2020 was incorrect. This is absurd. We spend millions of dollars per year on DMED and people monitoring DMED which is one of the premier epidemiological databases in the world. Accuracy in this database is critical as it is used to monitor for health issues in our troops.

“The DoD would have us believe that the DMED database was wrong from 2016-2020 but then magically was corrected in 2021 despite the fact that they had not noticed it was wrong until we pointed it out in our testimony before Senator Johnson. Further, we are asked to believe that in 2020, the year of what they claim to be the greatest pandemic since 1918, and despite the fact that it is documented that the CDC was also watching this database, no one noticed an error of 20 million-plus injury/disease codes per year,” Renz told The Epoch Times.

“The Department of Defense, the Biden administration is on notice they must preserve these records and this must be investigated,” Johnson said in the five-hour hearing in Washington.

“Renz also informed me that some DMED data showing registered diagnoses of myocarditis had been removed from the database. Following the allegation that DMED data had been doctored, I immediately wrote to you on January 24 requesting that you preserve all records referring, relating, or reported to DMED. I have yet to hear whether you have complied with this request.” Johnson wrote in a letter (pdf) to Lloyd Austin, the U.S. defense secretary.

Medical Data

Dundas told The Epoch Times that “in January of 2021. They introduced the vaccine, they mandated the vaccine for the U.S. military members. And in just the first 10 months of that vaccination year, anxiety jumped from 37,000 typically prior to that to 931,791 cases. It was a 2,400 plus percent increase.”

She went on to say that breast cancer was “pretty formulaic,” ranging from 500 to 900 cases for the five years prior to the introduction of the mandatory vaccination.

“First 10 months or 2021. They were at 4,068 cases. Again, it was about 450 some odd percent increase.

“Female infertility 2,200 cases a year a bad year would be 2,300 cases a year, first 10 months of 2021 after the vaccine 10,713 cases. ”

Even diseases that have not been connected so far with the vaccines saw a dramatic spike.

“Esophageal cancer in the U.S. military. Very, very minimal. Twenty-five, 26 cases, maybe a bad year is 39 cases. Jumps to 200 plus cases,” Dundas said.

“January acute myocarditis was in 176 cases, but now it’s practically down to 70 … bad that stuff going on,” she continued.

“Bell’s palsy 400 cases a year on average in the first 10 months of 2021 over 1,300 cases. Cognitive issues way up altered mental status way up. Congenital male malformations doubled.

“HIV 400 cases on average [per year] and now over 2,400 cases in the first 10 months.”


According to the whistleblower documents, miscarriages in the military were at 1,400 to 1,500 a year in the first three quarters of 2020, and it increased to over 4,000 during the first 10 months of 2021.

The Epoch Times reached out to Dr. Christiane Northrup, a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist with more than 30 years of experience and the former president of the American Holistic Medical Association.

Particularly alarming is the increase in miscarriages, she said.

“Here’s what we were finding—starting in April of 2021. All of us in the five Doc’s group, Dr. Lee Merritt, Dr. Carrie Madej, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, and Dr. Larry Palevsky, and me. We were hearing stories from all over the country about women who were having abnormal bleeding, miscarriages, and stillbirths, just from being around the people who had recently had the shot,” Northrup told The Epoch Times.

“We all got together and we said, Wait a minute. We’ve got to study this,” Northrup went on.

“People that I knew in the fertility business, we’re finding that all these women were having problems. I was getting a lot of personal calls. ‘What do I do?’ … we were very concerned.”

Michael Yeadon, the former Pfizer vice president and chief scientist for allergy and respiratory research, and Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg issued a petition (pdf) for administrative action regarding confirmation of efficacy on several of their findings regarding the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccines.

“We detailed a series of mechanistic toxicology concerns which we believed were reasonable to hold, unless & until proven not to occur,” Yeadon told The Epoch Times.

“Among those was that adverse impacts on conception & ability to sustain a pregnancy were foreseeable,” he added.

“It’s important to note that none of these gene-based agents had completed what’s called ‘reproductive toxicology.’ Over a year later, this battery of tests in animals still has not been done. So there was & still is no data package supporting safety in pregnancy or prior to conception.”

One of the whistleblowers, Dr. Pete Constantine Chambers, has been practicing medicine for 25 years, 16 of which he served as a flight surgeon attached to Special Operations.

“Here is a question that troubles me,” Chambers told The Epoch Times via email.

“After having my orders cut short leaving me no medical insurance coverage, losing my pay and leave that I had accumulated without any forewarning for exhibiting the Army Value of Personal Courage, and practicing the safe standard of care medicine by an entity I have served for so long; 1) What will happen to my enlisted troops? 2) How many? How many soldiers and airmen will experience adverse reactions, some of which result in disabilities or God forbid, death.

“One might call a provider such as myself an ‘anti-vaxxer.’ Nothing is further from the truth,” he further noted.

“I took the full course starting in January. I trusted my government and medical leaders. I have taken every vaccine the Army has given me since my first day as a private, in 1983. However, I too have experienced adverse reactions and am currently in the care of medical specialists exploring the signs and symptoms post second vaccine as well as the ominous finding on my brain MRI.

“I love my country, my state, and the heroes I work with and for. I believe all Americans are worth the sacrifices we make to keep us safe. I also believe as a provider in the first stanza of the Hippocratic Oath; ‘First of all, do no harm.’”

HELLO! Lew here. Amazing how you start out looking for one thing but end up reading other stuff that was also enlightening so….. side tracked again which brought up a reoccurring annoyance.

Not really sure of the correct procedure for such “cut and paste” insertion of articles from others. Generally I’ve just posted them without any comment by me. Sometimes just a quick suggestion to check out the posted material – so as to also not confuse it as anything of my creation or involvement. I am just a consumer of the material just as, I hope, you will be as well because it is indeed quite interesting – although certainly in opposition to what is currently being pushed in America.

Enough about that for now. Anyway, the reason for this quick introduction note is the fact it has always bothered me that every post has my name at the top left (duh! my website) when in actuality sometimes I’m just “passing along information” and therefore uninvolved as author/contributor. Yes, you folks already know that and all I have likely done is waste your time in reading this unnecessary disclaimer. Oh well, makes me feel better anyway. Shouldn’t have to do it again. Have a good one, or two.

My best to you and yours, Lew

Now here’s the link to that interesting article:
