“‘Oh, things seeped through somehow, always quietly, always indirectly. So people heard rumors, and the rest they could guess. Of course, most people did not believe the stories of Jews or other opponents of the regime. It was naturally thought that such persons would all exaggerate.’

“Rumors, guesses enough to make a man know if he wanted badly to know, or at least to believe, and always involving persons who would be suspected, ‘naturally,’ of exaggerating. Goebbels’ immediate subordinate in charge of radio in the Propaganda Ministry testified at Nuremberg that he had heard of the gassing of Jews, and went to Goebbels with the report. Goebbels said it was false, ‘enemy propaganda,’ and that was the end of it.”

You ignore eyewitness testimonies from victims and perpetrators alike.

You dismiss the deaths of countless victims, attributing it to other causes.

You doubt the survivors’ stories about their experiences and losses.

You think the monumental amount of bureaucratic, photographic, and film documentary evidence is faked or misinterpreted.

You believe the propagandists when they tell you the rumors are enemy propaganda.

You cherry-pick secondary sources that corroborate your convictions.

You cling to your faith in an insupportable position with the fervency of a Scientologist.

You use every opportunity to evangelize.

You attack anyone who presents evidence to the contrary.

You feel those who believe the accounts of witnesses and survivors need to be “educated” about the “truth.”

You valorize the genocidists and expectorate upon their targets.

You sanction the disciplining, ostracization, and even incarceration of the designated enemies.

You devise labyrinthine explanations to discredit the incontrovertible proof of mass murder.

You refuse to believe that degree of evil could be orchestrated on such an immense scale when it requires the participation and willing silence of so many colluders.

You mock the suffering of people who lost loved ones or endured permanent afflictions.

You build a wall to repel threatening facts and lock yourself inside a circle of fellow deniers who reinforce your beliefs.

Man Drawing Himself into a Circle

Oh wait, you thought I was talking about the World War II Holocaust?

No, no. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I’m talking about the Holocaust that’s happening at this very moment—and on a scale Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Idi Amin, Kim Il-Sung, Pinochet, and Pol Pot would never have dared conceive.

And I’m talking to you, the propaganda-suckling, pro-censorship, pro-slavery, anti-reality, anti-humanity totalitarianism apologist who is denying the validity of millions of medical reports regarding adverse reactions, including tens of thousands of deaths.

Oh, that’s right, you pooh-pooh VAERS and similar surveillance systems as a “dropbox” where anyone can submit reports—that’s the talking point your persuaders have sledgehammered into your spin-washed and fabric-softened brain, right? 

Do realize that whatever twaddle you’ve heard about VAERS from the BigPharma–Big Brother–Big Media–Big Tech propaganda complex was concocted to smear a reporting system that has been successfully used in the early detection of adverse events for three decades, is frequently referenced in peer-reviewed papers, is understood in the scientific community to be significantly underreported, and has been used to pull previous vaccines after as few as 15 reports of adverse events in the past (that is, when pharmaceutical corporations actually had to face the possibility of liability for their products and hadn’t been guaranteed impunity via Emergency Use Authorizations).

This CDC article, for example, notes:

“On July 16, 1999, CDC recommended that health-care providers suspend use of the licensed rhesus-human rotavirus reassortant-tetravalent vaccine (RRV-TV) (RotaShield®, Wyeth Laboratories, Inc., Marietta, Pennsylvania) in response to 15 cases of intussusception.… By July 6, 1999, the number of cases reported to VAERS had increased to 15, a higher number than expected, accounting for likely underreporting, available baseline estimates of intussusception, and the estimated number of doses of RRV-TV distributed.… [B]ecause VAERS is a national surveillance system with a simple reporting mechanism, it yields timely information and has high sensitivity for new vaccine safety concerns. Despite estimated underreporting of intussusception after RRV-TV of approximately 50% (7), VAERS successfully provided an alert.”

Let’s take a little tour through the peer-reviewed science on VAERS and see what we find out.

But first, let’s address the matter of correlation and causation since “correlation does not equal causation” is one of the regularly regurgitated bullet points from the VAERS disinformation campaign.

The American Council on Science & Health notes:

“It is oft-repeated that correlation does not imply causation. But it does. That’s precisely why epidemiologists and economists are so fascinated by correlations. Thus, it is far more accurate to say that correlation does not prove causation.”

That is where Hill’s Criteria of Causality comes in. It can be used to assess causation in cases of statistically anomalous correlations—like the colossal ones that started occurring in January 2021 and have been rising at historically unprecedented rates ever since.

Dr. Jessica Rose, a viral immunologist and computational virologist with a PhD in computational biology and two postdoc degrees in molecular biology, demonstrated the satisfaction of the Bradford Hill criteria in a recent presentation, but it doesn’t take a PhD and an understanding of statistics to see what is glaringly obvious to anyone who hasn’t been lobotomized by Big Pharma propaganda.

OpenVAERS: VAERS Reports through 10/22/21

You can review the latest data and read reports for yourself at OpenVAERS, including mortality data. Igor Chudov offers some tips on assessing your localized VAERS data in this article debunking the debunkers.

Recently published in Science, Public Health Policy, & the Law, this peer-reviewed paper by Dr. Rose assesses VAERS pharmacovigilance. Her August 27 presentation to the Canadian COVID Care Alliance also provides a detailed analysis of the VAERS data, including compelling proof of causation:

On September 17, 2021, COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund (CETF) Founder Steve Kirsch delivered a bombshell presentation to the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (full hearing available here, with Steve’s presentation starting @ 04:20:14; I recommend sticking around for Dr. David Wiseman’s presentation following Steve’s):

His trenchant PowerPoint is well worth downloading, reviewing, and sharing.

According to the analysis in this exhaustive document authored by Dr. Rose, Steve Kirsch, and Mathew Crawford, “The vaccines have killed over 150,000 Americans so far.” Notice that is Americans only. That doesn’t include deaths and adverse reactions tracked in other surveillance systems such as EudraVigilance (note the videos after the statistics), the UK’s Yellow Card system, and Australia’s Database of Adverse Event Notifications (see my analysis of data from the latter in the Down Under Edition of my Recommendations Roundup).

If you’re still skeptical of the validity of VAERS data, let’s rewind to pre-2021 to see how peer-reviewed papers describe it. This quote, taken from a paper titled, The Reporting Sensitivity of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) for Anaphylaxis and for Guillain-Barré Syndrome, is one of hundreds of such examples:

“Underreporting is a limitation common to passive surveillance systems, including the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) that monitors the safety of U.S.-licensed vaccines. Nonetheless, previous reports demonstrate substantial case capture for clinically severe adverse events (AEs).” —Vaccine (October 2020)

Also published in Vaccine, the paper Causality Assessment of Adverse Events Reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) concludes:

“Using VAERS reports and additional documentation, causality could be assessed by expert review in the majority of VAERS reports.” (November 2012)

The VAERS website itself explains:

“‘Underreporting’ is one of the main limitations of passive surveillance systems, including VAERS. The term, underreporting refers to the fact that VAERS receives reports for only a small fraction of actual adverse events. The degree of underreporting varies widely. As an example, a great many of the millions of vaccinations administered each year by injection cause soreness, but relatively few of these episodes lead to a VAERS report. Physicians and patients understand that minor side effects of vaccinations often include this kind of discomfort, as well as low fevers. On the other hand, more serious and unexpected medical events are probably more likely to be reported than minor ones, especially when they occur soon after vaccination, even if they may be coincidental and related to other causes.”

And if VAERS is so unreliable—as BigPharma sock puppets suddenly started claiming in 2021—why does the CDC admit to using it in its determination about whether or not to recall a vaccine?

“CDC analyzed reports to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) to search for any side effects that might have been caused by the irregularity …”

If you’re still a denier after having read this far, Swiss Policy Research provides rigorous documentation for some of the more common injuries on their Covid Vaccine Adverse Events page.

At risk to his own career and even life, Funeral Directer John O’Looney recently disclosed his harrowing firsthand experiences of mortality dating back to November 2019.

In this revelatory interview, (now-terminated) Hospitalist Physician’s Assistant Deborah Conrad explains how VAERS reporting works and describes the surge in adverse events she witnessed.

ICU physician Patricia Lee, MD, recently submitted this letter to the FDA documenting the alarming number of anomalous post-injection injuries and fatalities she has seen in her ward. That courageous act has led eleven other physicians to follow suit so far.

I understand peer-reviewed papers and abstract statistics may convince your head but not your heart. That is one reason it was necessary for Facebook to delete the 120,000-member group where people who have been injured by and lost loved ones to the injections could commiserate and share their experiences. Think about the vicious cruelty of such an act. And also consider the size of that group—120,000 members by April, just a few months after the rollout.

When ABC put out a call on Facebook for stories of unvaxxed COVID deaths, they were instead flooded with hundreds of thousands of responses (257,000 as of this writing) from those suffering heartrending losses or injuries caused by the “cure.” Something tells me ABC won’t be covering those stories.

The Testimonies Project shares stories of vaccine-injured and grieving family members from Israel, and there are innumerable accounts of those who’ve died following injection, such as this 32-year-old man named Benjamin, 16-year-old Ernesto Ramirez Jr., 19-year-old Simone Scott, 18-year-old Camilla Canepa, a 12-year-old child, 21-year-old personal trainer Shawn Kuhn, 23-year-old army conscript Khanti Anantasiri, this 22-year-old French man, 37-year-old Jessica Berg Wilson, 35-year-old Anne VanGeest, 43-year-old Brad Malagarie, 56-year-old health care worker, 60-year-old Sandra Jacobs, BBC radio presenter Lisa Shaw, Pakistani Police Superintendent Malik Mahmood, 46-year-old Indian actor Puneeth Rajkumar, Indian actor Vivek, numerous professional athletes, multiple pilots, and a bevy of other victims who “died suddenly” or whose cause of death was listed as a “short illness” to obscure the cause. Although I have been unable to confirm their vaccination status, examples of young, healthy individuals in highly-vaccinated sectors who died include 38-year-old Green Beret NCO Calvin T. Rockward, 43-year-old London celebrity chef Gurpareet Bains, and 43-year-old Brazilian conductor Leonardo David.

The number of athletes dying or injured following injection has grown so enormous that many have started compiling lists, such as this Reddit thread, Not on the Beeb, Threadreader, this D. O’Genius twitter thread, el gato malo of the must-follow bad cattitude, Plebeian Resistance, and BAM! Belgian Alternative Media, among many others.

New York University Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication Mark Crispin Miller documents more spike casualties here, here, and here.

Those who don’t suffer fatalities may wind up contracting COVID, anyway, like Minnesota Vikings member Dakota Dozier, or worse, endure debilitating, painful, and life-threatening afflictions, such as 18-year-old Emma Burkey; 17-year-old Everest Romney; a 17-year-old previously healthy male; 35-year-old mom Brittany Galvin, SPARTN Monkey Rescue Founder Michael Robison; NBA player Brandon Goodwin; soccer player Sergio Agüero; 28-year-old Emil Pálsson and baseball player Daniel Brito1; and mountain biker Kyle Warner:

When 12-year-old Maddie De Garay volunteered for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine trial for adolescents, she lost feeling from the waist down and became wheelchair-bound and dependent on a feeding tube, as her mother describes in this disquieting interview and this public hearing. Pfizer appears to have no interest in investigating the “side effects” their trial was supposedly designed to identify.

Way back in early January 2021, right after the inoculation program was launched in Ireland, award-winning investigative journalist Gemma O’Doherty gave a comprehensive summation in which she exposed some of the casualties and adverse effects that began occurring immediately after injection.

And since you’re so fond of Listening To The Experts™, here’s what a few actual experts have to say on the matter.

Yellow Star Series Meme: "It works better when we do it together!"

Still a denier? Then you’d better turn in your moral superiority card when it comes to the “good Germans,” who trusted their government, their media, their leaders, their doctors, their scientists, their educators, their corporations, and every other representative of the State tapping into people’s fears of disease and death to divide the followers from the freethinkers and dehumanize the branded enemy.

And you’d certainly better stop sneering at your Holocaust denier predecessors, much less deluding yourself into believing you’re on “the right side of history.”

Reconsidering your position? Great. Now you can be part of the solution—instead of the Final Solution.
