The Jab Jinx



The Jab Jinx


As Big Brother, Big Pharma, and Big Tech scheme to put a needle in every arm, Americans realize this syringe is mightier than a sword.


By Rebecca Terrell


What happened to Covid-19? Only weeks ago the U.S. Supreme Court sold out healthcare workers nationwide with a federal vaccine mandate in defiance of sacred medical autonomy. Now, SARS-CoV-2 and its endless variants barely make headlines. Google Trends data reveals search interest for the keyword “covid” nosedived since January, just as “Ukraine” went viral.


The pandemic still stings those injured by Covid vaccines. The family of a young man in Louisiana is mourning his untimely death, which doctors attribute to the jab. Brandon Pollet, age 33, developed a fatal autoimmune disease shortly after receiving his second Pfizer dose last August and passed away on January 28. He leaves behind his wife, Jessica, and their one-year-old daughter.


When his young widow recounted their tragedy on Facebook, the social-media giant deleted her message, claiming it violated their standards on misinformation. “I see why people don’t hear others stories,” Jessica wrote. “Facebook makes it incredibly hard to share.” The platform now attaches a “Get Vaccine Info” link to each of her posts, with the heartless claim that Covid jabs are safe and effective.


A doctor told her that Brandon, who enjoyed perfect health prior to the jab, was the fourth Covid-vaccine induced case of a rare autoimmune disorder known as HLH that he has personally witnessed in the past year. Jessica shared her experience with an HLH support group, and others relayed similar stories about their loved one’s post-vaccine injuries.


She also reported Brandon’s death to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), a program jointly managed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The agencies use it to identify early warning signals regarding vaccine safety.


Body Count


Brandon’s is one of more than 25,000 Covid vaccine-related deaths tallied by mid-March. That’s nearly three times the number of deaths than those attributed to all other vaccines combined since VAERS began recording in 1990. Based on FDA’s track record of post-market vaccine surveillance, this red flag should have stripped Covid jabs of emergency use authorization (EUA). Moreover, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) admits, “fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported” to the voluntary VAERS system, according to the agency’s Lazarus Report. That means Covid vaccines may have claimed more than 2.4 million lives in 15 months; other reported adverse effects totaling nearly 1.2 million would equate to around 120 million.


Nothing to see here, say pundits. “Reactions to both [Pfizer and Moderna] mRNA vaccines are generally mild and subside after one or two days,” CDC official Tom Shimabukuro told USA Today. He helped author a March 2022 study published in The Lancet analyzing the first six months’ worth of VAERS data that suggest “92.1% of negative side effects were not serious.”


“A severe event ratio (including death) of 7.9% … is high — very high!” writes mRNA vaccine pioneer Dr. Robert Malone on his blog. However, that estimate is dramatically low, as an analysis at reveals. CDC counted each jab dose separately “so that if 100 people received 3 doses … and all 100 died, the death rate would be 33% (100 deaths out of 300 doses)!”


Malone also points out that the FDA imposes an extremely narrow window for VAERS reporting; adverse events occurring more than one month post-jab usually don’t count. Yet the journal Cell reported in January that synthetic mRNA continues producing spike protein and antigens in the body for at least 60 days.


And why the six-month cut-off in The Lancet paper? Was it to exclude children and teens, who did not begin getting the jab until May? Problems have since plagued that age group. For instance, the December British Medical Journal reported that “risk of myocarditis [heart inflammation] following vaccination is consistently higher in younger males.” A study in November’s issue of Clinical Infectious Diseases found “significant increase in the risk of acute myocarditis/pericarditis [heart lining inflammation]” among vaccinated male adolescents.


Perhaps that is why former English football player Matt Le Tissier told Oracle Films in February, “I’ve never seen anything like it…. It’s unbelievable how many sports players are keeling over.” Le Tissier is calling on health leaders in the U.K. to investigate a five-fold increase in cardiac events and deaths among athletes in 2021 compared to the previous 12-year average, noting an additional uptick in medical emergencies occurring among fans since lockdowns were lifted.


U.S. health officials also have no answer for recent skyrocketing mortality unrelated to Covid. During a December news conference hosted by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, Scott Davison, president of the insurance company OneAmerica, reported an unprecedented 40-percent increase in all-cause mortality among working age adults in 2021, most of which was not related to Covid. He said that “a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be 10 percent increase over pre-pandemic. So 40 percent is just unheard of.”



But can we trust bureaucrats to investigate honestly? Even The New York Times admitted in February that the “CDC isn’t publishing large portions of the Covid data it collects,” withholding crucial information on boosters, hospitalizations, and even wastewater analysis. CDC spokesman Kristen Norlund explained the deception, claiming the data was “not yet ready for prime time” and could easily be misinterpreted. (Read: the agency had not scrubbed it yet.)


It could have also stymied the Biden administration’s massive pro-vaccine media campaign. In March, The Blaze obtained documents through a Freedom of Information Act request revealing that the “federal government paid hundreds of media companies to advertise” the jab while their reporting and editorial departments gilded the lily with positive news coverage. The total tab: $1 billion in taxpayer money Congress appropriated in 2021 for HHS to “strengthen vaccine confidence in the United States.” In a press release, Liberty Counsel chair Mat Staver opined, “People have been injured and died as a result of the most extensive propaganda campaign in U.S. history, and it was paid for with our taxpayer dollars.”


But isn’t the disease worse than the reputed cure? Through mid-March, the World Health Organization (WHO) records more than six million Covid deaths, while nearly 11 billion jab doses have been administered. Missing from WHO’s online “Coronavirus Dashboard” is data from its VigiAccess database: 3.4 million adverse reactions to Covid vaccines reported worldwide. WHO admits that, like VAERS, VigiAccess numbers are under-estimates? Alarmingly, 70 percent of WHO’s adverse cases involve the 18- to 64-year age group, while “more than 80% of COVID-19 deaths occur in individuals aged 65 years or older,” according to an analysis of CDC data by the nonprofit Physicians for Informed Consent. The Mayo Clinic’s website says individuals age 85 and older are at highest risk of serious Covid complications.


Why should low-risk groups gamble on the vaccine? “I could do damage to somebody else, even if I have no symptoms at all,” prated Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), on NBC’s Today Show. “And that’s the reason why you’ve gotta be careful and get vaccinated.”


That’s never been true, and he knows it. WHO exposed asymptomatic transmission as a myth in June 2020 at a briefing in Geneva. The agency’s technical lead of Covid-19 response, Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, stated, “We have a number of reports from countries who are doing very detailed contract tracing … and they are not finding secondary transmission.” She noted, “It’s very rare, and much of that is not published in the literature.”


Kerkhove backpedaled the next day during a follow-up session, saying that “around 40 percent of transmission may be due to asymptomatic.” As justification for her outrageous flip, she cited bureaucratic forecast modeling instead of clinical research. It took a full year for WHO to admit its model estimates were bogus, stating in June 25 testing strategy recommendations that “widespread asymptomatic population screening” is a waste of time and money and in fact negatively impacts outbreak management due to high incidence of false positives.


Covid Politics


“I’m going to call it out…. This is corruption, plain and simple,” said Dr. Pierre Kory, pulmonary and critical-care specialist and founder of the Front Line COIVD-19 Critical Care Alliance, during a January panel discussion on Capitol Hill hosted by U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). Condemning the U.S. health system for putting “profits ahead of patients,” Dr. Kory alleged that bureaucrats are intentionally suppressing off-label use of safe treatments because they do not “provide profit to the system.” He declared that in the U.S. pandemic response, “Almost every single policy serves the interest of a pharmaceutical company.”


Others backed up his charge. “NIAID … co-owns the patent on the Moderna vaccine. [Four] members of the NIAID get royalties from the profits,” stated Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, former director of the medical ethics program at University of California-Irvine Health, who lost his job of 15 years for refusing the Covid jab. Senator Johnson cited further conflicts of interest among bureaucrats authorized to approve the vaccines as well as toxic but highly profitable Covid medications such as remdesivir.


And what better way to ensure steady profits than a mandate for annual boosters? “If they can get every person required [to take] an annual vaccine, that is a recurring return of money going into their company,” FDA executive Christopher Cole told an undercover Project Veritas reporter in footage released in February. Cole is part of the agency’s countermeasures initiative, which oversees vaccine approval. He admitted that Big Pharma firms “pay us hundreds of millions of dollars a year to hire and keep the reviewers to approve their products.” He bragged, “There’s almost a billion dollars a year going into FDA’s budget from the people we regulate.”


Such corruption is nothing new in the vaccine world. A decade ago, the journal Accountability in Research complained of “Conflicts of Interest in Vaccine Safety Research.” Among other damning evidence, it reported rampant collusion between federal agencies and Big Pharma, which sponsors a majority of vaccine-safety research and medical journals and funds a large part of the FDA’s budget.


Additionally, since 1986 Congress has exempted Big Pharma from product liability for vaccines that CDC places on its childhood immunization schedule. In similar fashion, the federal government protects Covid vaccine manufacturers. In 2020, HHS preemptively declared pharmaceutical companies immune from liability related to “COVID-19 countermeasures,” citing the 2005 Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act.


To continue bolstering the crisis narrative, Biden has extended indefinitely his Federal National Emergency Declaration, which was due to expire March 1. He is also planning to mandate annual Covid jabs, even for children as young as six months, as Project Veritas revealed. Cole acknowledged the plan’s absurdity due to a dearth of safety and efficacy tests, especially in children and pregnant women. The agenda explains why the U.S. government purchased 50 million doses of Pfizer’s pediatric Covid vaccine last October, before it granted EUA for kids as young as five.


Big Brother and Big Pharma have indeed reached a new level of corruption. Cardiologist and internist Dr. Peter McCullough, a leader in successful Covid ambulatory treatment, testified in Senator Johnson’s panel discussion about the unprecedented absence of an independent review board to monitor Covid vaccine safety in the general public. “I am testifying today that the program would have been shut down in February [2021] because of excess mortality.” He warned, “If America can learn anything we should never have the FDA and CDC be a sponsor of a public program.”


McCullough explained another first for Covid vaccines. Clinical trials excluded large groups of individuals — pregnant women and Covid-recovered among them — because of the high likelihood of problems that could result. But since EUA approval, these same groups have been encouraged and even coerced to get the jab, in stark contrast to regulatory precedent. McCullough said that helps explain skyrocketing VAERS statistics. “It’s wrongdoing by those in positions of regulatory authority,” he avowed.



Malfeasance has reached such a pitch that health officials are now dictating how doctors practice medicine. Kheriaty related his experience with the California medical board, which last year threatened all physicians in the state with investigation and disciplinary action should they write “inappropriate” exemptions for “COVID-related measures.” As a result, it is virtually impossible to get any medical exemption, even for conditions CDC lists as contraindications to Covid vaccines. He has a patient whose rheumatologist advised her not to be inoculated because it could worsen her underlying autoimmune disease. Since her employer mandates the jab, she asked the specialist to write an exemption. He refused for fear he might lose his license.


The situation is not confined to California. Kyle Warner, a 29-year-old professional mountain-bike racer from Boise, Idaho, whose career was cut short by the Pfizer jab, told Senator Johnson’s panel that even he cannot get an exemption for boosters because his doctor is afraid she will lose her medical license for writing it.


DOD Data


Others are willing to put their professional careers on the line to expose government fraud. Attorney Tom Renz, representing three U.S. military whistleblowers, testified before Senator Johnson’s panel regarding data the three medical doctors uncovered from the comprehensive Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED). In the first 10 months of 2021, neurological issues shot up more than 1,000 percent over the previous five-year average. Cancers and miscarriages rose by almost 300 percent. Further DMED data posted on the Renz Law website include an alarming 2,181-percent spike in hypertension, a 468-percent increase in pulmonary embolism, and a heartbreaking 155-percent increase in birth defects.


The statistics prompted one of the whistleblowers, aerospace medicine specialist Lieutenant Colonel Dr. Theresa Long, to recommend grounding Army pilots who already received the jab. She testified in a previous hearing on Capitol Hill in December, calling the vaccine a greater threat to military readiness than the virus, and revealing a criminal disregard among military leaders for the health and safety of U.S. servicemen.


“So we skipped two years of Phase II trials, and three years of Phase III trials. We only lost 12 active-duty soldiers to Covid. Yet we’re going to risk the health of the entire fighting force on a vaccine we only had two months of safety data on?” she recalled asking a senior Army medical official last May. His response: “You’re damned right, Colonel, and you’re going to get every soldier you can to take the vaccine so I can get enough data points to determine if the vaccine is safe.”


It isn’t safe or effective, as further Department of Defense (DOD) research shows. Last September, DOD covertly reported to CDC that 71 percent of its new Covid cases and 68 percent of Covid hospitalizations were among the fully vaccinated. Renz said it was about this time that Washington coined the phrase “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” and he condemned that blatant deception as “corruption at the highest level.”


Within a week of Renz’s testimony, DOD blamed an alleged computer glitch for underreporting the previous five years’ data, and the agency released doctored figures. “To believe these brand-new DOD numbers you have to believe that the DOD under-reported all cases on this military database by around 20 million per year for 5 years,” said Renz. “Yes, my friends, this is what a cover-up looks like.”

Renz’s extensive documentation is the basis of a lawsuit he filed in U.S. District Court in February on behalf of America’s Frontline Doctors. The plaintiffs accuse the federal government of intentionally deceiving the public about Covid vaccines, calling it “the greatest fraud in the history of the world.”


We should have seen it coming. The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security plainly spelled out insiders’ pandemic plans in 2017 with publication of “SPARS Pandemic, 2025-2028: A Futuristic Scenario for Public Health Risk Communicators.” In the sidebar on page 17, Alex Newman reveals the fiendish details of this and similar pre-Covid exercises funded by groups such as the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The parallels between the pandemic and its prequel are striking, including a massive push for expedited experimental vaccines, liability protection for their manufacturers, plans to stifle dissenters, and an ensuing flood of adverse reactions to the shots. Of interest is the fact that long-term neurological symptoms began to emerge one year after inoculation.


Is it just coincidence that FDA asked a U.S. District Court in January for 75 years to fully release the data it used to authorize the Pfizer vaccine? The judge denied the request, and in March the agency relinquished 55,000 pages of data. They list a shocking 1,291 different adverse events — including cardiac and neurological damage and pregnancy complications — with more to come considering the 380,000-plus pages remaining to fulfill the Freedom of Information Act request that prompted the lawsuit.


The Solution


“This is what happens when medicine merges with the state. We get the worst of both,” wrote former U.S. Representative Ron Paul from his Institute for Peace and Prosperity. He called for “separation of medicine and the state,” without which we can expect further violations of our God-given right to bodily autonomy, to the point of life-threatening mandates.


Unbridled bureaucratic vice is only a symptom of an out-of-control, tyrannical government. We need a cure for modern slavery more than for Covid, and that cure is the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits federal encroachment in almost every area of life, including healthcare.


Fortunately, the growing resistance to mandates and other Covid restrictions shows that people are waking up to the shackles that government overreach has long placed on them. Americans are realizing that the cure for Covid isn’t found in a syringe. The healthy solution will protect both our lives and liberty, restoring constitutional shackles on government so doctors can practice medicine, patients can call their own shots, and everyone can enjoy the new normal of freedom.
