The Fairy Tale of Pandemic Risk

The Fairy Tale of Pandemic Risk

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Public health has come into its own over the past few years; a once-backwater profession now promoted to be the arbiters of liberty and human relationships. Outbreaks of diseases associated with death at an average age of about 80, or even purely hypothetical, are now sufficient reason to close workplaces, close schools, upend economies and convince people to turn on their noncompliant neighbors. The result, while impoverishing the many, has driven an unprecedented concentration of wealth.

Rational Policy Over Panic

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

In view of their influence, international health agencies have a particular responsibility to ensure their policies are well-grounded in data and objective analysis. Moreover, governments have a responsibility to take the time, and effort, to ensure that their populations are well-served. It is hoped that the evaluation in the REPPARE report Rational Policy Over Panic presented with this article will contribute to this effort.

Brownstone Institute - CDC’s Vaccine-Efficacy Epidemiologic Incompetence

CDC’s Vaccine-Efficacy Epidemiologic Incompetence

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Periodically during the Covid-19 pandemic, CDC scientific staff have employed their available studies’ data to estimate the efficacy of current or recent versions of Covid-19 vaccines to reduce risk of testing positive for Covid-19. While the fact of “testing positive” has been somewhat controversial because of the secret PCR Ct threshold numbers involved that have allowed for uninfectious people with unrecognized Covid-19 from some weeks in the past to remain test-positive, my goal here is to illustrate CDC’s problematic epidemiologic methods that have substantially inflated the vaccine efficacy percents that they have reported.

Brownstone Institute - Our 'Leaders' Learned Nothing from Their Covid Failures

Our ‘Leaders’ Learned Nothing from Their Covid Failures

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

What are you doing to prepare for Disease X? If you are like most people, probably nothing. This is likely the first you are hearing of Disease X. However, if you spent mid-January in Davos, your answer may have included improving healthcare infrastructure, investing in vaccines, and promoting a pandemic treaty that may or may not threaten state sovereignty around the globe.

Brownstone Institute - Medicine Has Been Fully Militarized

Medicine Has Been Fully Militarized

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

At this writing, virtually all the major healthcare systems, specialty regulatory boards, specialty associations, and medical schools are standing at attention, still in lockstep with the received – and by now, clearly false – narrative. Their funding, after all, be it from Pharma or the Government, depends upon their obedience. Barring dramatic change, they will respond in the same fashion when orders come down from above in the future. Medicine has been fully militarized.

Brownstone Institute - Disease-X and Davos: This is Not the Way to Evaluate and Formulate Public Health Policy

Disease X and Davos: This is Not the Way to Evaluate and Formulate Public Health Policy

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

To gain legitimacy, public health policy must be vested in institutions answerable to the public and based on reliable evidence. In the case of the recent World Economic Forum (WEF) venture in public health policy advocacy in Davos, neither of these measures of legitimacy were met. Also in question is legitimacy in the media coverage, where the basic tenets of journalism – questioning evidence, corroborating sources, providing context, and awareness of conflict of interest – seem to have gone missing.

Did Pfizer-BioNTech “Placebos” Contain Empty Lipids?

The focus of my report was the discovery by the German professors that all but one of the “yellow” batches, which are almost entirely innocuous per the Danish data, had not been subject to quality control testing by the agency responsible for batch release throughout the EU: namely, Germany’s own Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI).

History Will Remember Tegnell’s Covid Heroism

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

As is well known, Sweden handled the Covid pandemic in a different way to the rest of the world. There were no closures of economic activities or schools and national borders were kept open. Anders Tegnell worked as the state epidemiologist in the Swedish Public Health Authority (FHM) during the pandemic. He was not the top leader of FHM, but in his capacity as state epidemiologist became FHM’s external face. Together with journalist Fanny Härgestam, Tegnell has written a book about the pandemic and here is a summary of it.

Why Was the BioNTech/Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Not Recalled in February 2021?

It sure seems like the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine, for an undisclosed reason, was privileged over the J&J product by regulators, such that even more than 1,000 deaths in three months were not considered a “novel safety concern or risk requiring label changes.” Not to mention withdrawing the product from the market.

The Globalists’ New Weapon

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Almost every major news outlet in the world has run black propaganda pieces about Disease X. Why do I write black propaganda – because the “experts” aren’t actually named, the peer-reviewed papers supporting the thesis of “a deadly pathogen causing 20 times more deaths than COVID-19” or “killing 20 times more people than COVID-19” or “killing 50 million people” are non-existent. Yet these narratives are all headline news in mainstream media.

They knew of the risks, and they withheld the information from the American people. Stripped of informed consent, millions of citizens took the shots while doctors like Demetre Daskalakis denied them the right to know the risks of the product.
