The Experts Still Pushing Coerced Jabs

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

In a previous era, or in a previously credible medical journal, an argument for coercion to support a medical procedure would have required very high standards of evidence of efficacy and safety. It is arguing for the abrogation of fundamental principles such as informed consent that are at the core of modern medical ethics. Failure to address well-known contrary data should prevent an article from even reaching the peer-review stage.

The greater the distrust, the greater the fear of sanctions. But the greater the fear of sanctions, the more those objecting to vaccinate were adamant not to vaccinate.

Follow the Science, Reconsidered

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Science is like a weathervane: it gives you information, which you can use to decide on a course of action, but it doesn’t tell you what to do. The decision belongs to you, not to the swirling metal rooster. A weathervane can tell you there’s a stiff wind coming in from the northwest, but it can’t tell you how to respond to the data.

D.C.’s Dangerous and Divisive Vaccine Mandate

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Over socially distanced glasses of chardonnay, well-to-do Beltway residents cling to their COVID-19 narrative where vaccines funded by the big pharmaceutical companies offer the only hope. In their world, no one — not even children — is safe without a vaccine. Anyone who dares deviate from the company line is dismissed as a backwater Trump-supporting conspiracist, even lifelong Democrats like me.

The Mystery of Unaccounted Excess Deaths in the US

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The CDC and other officials will call these deaths “indirect pandemic deaths.” They are not.

The Straw that broke Twitter

The Straw that Broke the Blue Bird’s Back

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL
