There's been so much lying, scare-mongering and general propaganda surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic that it's very hard to get to the truth - or, rather, it's been hard until recently. Inevitably, lies are exposed and liars are found out. That's happening in an ever-growing cascade right now. In this post, I'm going to put together a few things to illustrate that point.
To begin with, let's take the massive propaganda campaign against the use of Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19. You've doubtless seen the jokes, memes and official scorn about people treating the disease with "sheep medicine" or "deworming medicine", and claims that Ivermectin can't possibly be of any use against the pandemic. (The Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, with a population of well over 200 million, would beg to differ - and that's just one of many success stories.)
To begin with, Ivermectin was developed to deal with parasite infestations, including river blindness (endemic in Africa), scabies, parasitic elephantiasis (also common in parts of Africa), and so on. It was developed for human use, and later applied to animal use as well. So successful was it that, as Wikipedia points out:
William Campbell and Satoshi Ōmura won the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for its discovery and applications. The medication is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, and is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as an antiparasitic agent.
A Nobel Prize for its discovery? Designated by the top medical and health organization in the entire world as an "essential medicine"? Doesn't that sound like just a little bit more than "sheep medicine" or "worm medicine"? It should! In Africa, where Ivermectin is available over-the-counter in most countries, it's regarded as a miracle medication. Nothing else has been so effective in reducing river blindness and other parasite-related infections. Similarly, hydroxychoroquine is a commonly used prophylactic medication against malaria, which is endemic in Africa. I used to take hydroxy on a daily basis for months at a time while I was in malaria-infested areas. Like Ivermectin, it was an over-the-counter medicine that cost pennies per tablet. It still is, in Africa.
(Ever wondered why African nations are reporting COVID-19 infections at a rate 4-5 times lower than other parts of the world? I suspect it's because so many Africans are already taking Ivermectin and/or hydroxychloroquine to treat other medical issues that COVID-19 finds the continent a hostile environment. It can't get established, because so many people are already taking medications that inhibit it. That's my theory, anyway.)
Note, too, the propaganda scare tactics about Ivermectin "poisoning" that have been appearing across US news media. The Desert Review has an excellent article on the subject. Here's an excerpt. Bold, underlined text is my emphasis.
The lesson is not about Ivermectin being poisonous because it isn't, but about the pervasiveness of a type of new internet propaganda termed "informational flooding.”
. . .
Are you kidding me? Nine telephone calls are enough to make the news? We have 2,213 deaths on August 26 from COVID-19, but these nine telephone calls are enough to make the headlines?
We have a media blackout on how India used cheap Ivermectin to obliterate the Delta variant while we struggle unsuccessfully to sell the public on problematic yet profitable vaccines.
. . .
Suddenly we see hundreds of articles on so-called "Ivermectin poisoning.” Indeed, we see more ARTICLES published than there were TELEPHONE CALLS in August on Ivermectin to poison control centers in the ENTIRE NATION.
. . .
Rolling Stone Magazine published an interview with an Oklahoma osteopathic physician, Dr. Jason McElyea, who claimed that Northeastern Hospital System’s emergency departments were overrun with so many Ivermectin overdoses that gunshot victims were having difficulty getting treatment. Dr. McElyea stated,“The ERs are so backed up that gunshots victims were having a hard time getting to facilities where they can get definitive care and be treated.”
Multiple networks repeated the story, and it went viral ... But the report turned out to be false.
Rolling Stone was forced to publish a retraction of sorts, a correction to their report, wherein they stated the truth of the matter was the opposite ... . Northeastern Hospital System Sequoyah informed them that Dr. Jason McElyea, although affiliated with them, had not worked in the Sallisaw location in the last two months.
Furthermore, in a statement issued September 5, 2021, Northeastern Hospital System Sequoyah reported that no patients had been treated for Ivermectin overdose. Indeed no patients were treated for any complications of taking Ivermectin - and no gunshot wound patients or otherwise had been turned away from seeking emergency care.
It was all untrue. We were all lied to.

Please note, I'm not denying that COVID-19 is real, or that it's a health risk. It's both. I've so far had two bouts with COVID-19, and neither was fun . . . but I had medication (including both Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine) to deal with it, and they worked as advertised, and I recovered without needing hospitalization or advanced care. (That's despite being in several high-risk brackets, including age, respiratory impairment, weight and others.) I have both medications in my medicine cabinet right now, and I'll use them again if I get another dose. I have no doubts about their effectiveness.
However, I have HUGE doubts about the efficacy and safety of the vaccines on offer. So does the FDA. In a mammoth eight-hour virtual meeting last week, the agency analyzed data about the vaccines' effect on patients, and came to some truly horrifying conclusions. Aesop has listened to the recording of the meeting (which you'll find here), and highlights these points.
This was an FDA livestream of an open virtual meeting their own officials and medical professionals, along with multiple other outside parties, from yesterday. This is a US Government-sponsored meeting:
"Herd immunity using the vaccine is impossible." 4:15:00ff
"The vaccine caused 71x more heart attacks in the vaccinated than any other vaccine." 4:20:00ff
"...vaccines, boosters, and mandates are all nonsensical." 4:21:00
"We killed two people to save one life." 4:21:30
"[The number of deaths per million doses administered - 411:1M] translates into about 150,000 people have died (from receiving the vaccine in just the U.S.)." 4:21:50ff
"The real numbers confirm that we kill more than we save." 4:22:00ff
"In the most optimistic study (for 90-year-olds) it means 50% of the vaccinated died, and 0% of the unvaccinated died." 4:22:20
Most of that was from the presentation of Steve Kirsch, Exec. Director of COVID Early Treatment Fund.
This guy is throwing hand grenades out with the pins pulled, every 5 seconds, the kind of headlines that would get a newsreader from BFEgypt a featured position at 60 Minutes.
Presenter after presenter beat the vaxx pimps over and over about the dearth of proper testing protocols, and utter lack of actual scientific data for any of the claims to date made by them and TPTB.
The entire meeting left the reservation, and stayed there.
Let's repeat Aesop's emphasis. That was an official US government meeting, of an official US government agency, considering official US government statistics about the effectiveness (or otherwise) of COVID-19 vaccines. Their conclusions were - to put it mildly - catastrophic.
In a comment to a follow-up post, Aesop notes:
At the linked section in the previous post, one of the presenters noted the ratio of deaths to vaccinations was 411:1M.
He goes on to state that would equate to 150K dead from the vaccines.
The US has done 383.5M vaccinations. X 411 = 157,618 deaths.
. . .
And yes, the VAERS reports tally 15K deaths.
And multiple statisticians have pointed out that probably only 1 adverse event in 10 is reported, even deaths.
Which gets us right back to 150K deaths.
What's breathtaking is that there is absolutely NO interest or curiosity in investigating to nail the number down: not officially, not journalistically, not medically.
No one wants to look, because they're afraid of what they might find. Or worse, they already know.
15,000, or 150,000 deaths now, and no one even wants to look.
This isn't simple bureaucratic inertia or laziness, it's studied indifference to reality.
But it explains why Israel's COVID deaths spiked concurrently with vaccinations, and why ours peaked starting last December, just as we were beginning to vaccinate people here.
You can only look the other way from Mt. Everest for so long, before it becomes too big to not notice.
Carl Bussjaeger highlights another scary figure from that FDA meeting.
1 in 1,000
Myocarditis in itself can be lethal. It can lead to cardiomyopathy which is deadly. According to a retired RN, the only “cure” is a heart transplant. According to MDs, the five-year morbidity rate for cardiomyopathy is 66% to 77%.
One in a thousand. In the United States. Globally, the annual myocarditis incidence rate is 1.5 in 100,000. The pseudo-vaxxed are 100 times more likely to experience this than the non-vaxxed.
. . .
I finally found the number of Pfizer doses administered.
218,872,070, as of September 16, 2021. The
goodslightly less worse news is that isn’t 218,872,070 individuals; mostly that appears to be people who got both jabs. But it’s a minimum of 109,436,035 individuals who got at least one (fairly close to my earlier guesstimate). We’re still looking at the potential need for 10,000 more transplant hearts.
I think we’re gonna need Nivenesque organ banks, stocked with serial speeding ticket offenders.
Again, more at the link. Since I suffer from a form of cardiomyopathy myself, and am much more intimately familiar with the disease than I'd prefer, I can confirm his comments about its dangers.
I'm sure China, which presented us - one way or another - with the COVID-19 virus in the first place, will be delighted to sell us the human hearts we need to transplant into those ten thousand-odd patients. After all, they have a long tradition of harvesting organs from executed prisoners to sell to Westerners desperate for replacements . . . and they have all those millions of Uighurs in "re-education camps", just waiting to be exploited.
Another data point: when the vaccines were tested, there was a vaccinated group of volunteers, and a "control group" who were injected with something innocuous (usually saline solution) rather than the vaccine. The idea was (as always in such medical studies) to compare one group against the other to assess the efficacy of the vaccines, not just short-term, but long-term as well. However, the control group were later offered the vaccine, thus wiping out any possibility of testing the vaccine against a known factor.
Dr. Steven Goodman, a clinical trials specialist at Stanford University, says losing those control groups makes it more difficult to answer some important questions about COVID-19 vaccines.
"We don't know how long protections lasts," he says. "We don't know efficacy against variants — for which we definitely need a good control arm — and we also don't know if there are any differences in any of these parameters by age or race or infirmity."
To sum up: I don't think we should have any faith in official propaganda pressuring us to be vaccinated against COVID-19, or accept "booster shots". I think the growing body of evidence outlined above suggests very strongly that the risk of adverse side-effects is far greater than official pronouncements will admit. Yes, the vaccines may provide benefits to a great many people . . . but how do you know that you won't be one of the many people to suffer an adverse reaction? If the odds of such a reaction were very low - as they are with most other vaccinations - then I think most of us would accept them as worthwhile. When they're as high as the FDA has just admitted . . . not so much.
I emphasize that none of the evidence provided above is "conspiracy theory" crackpot nonsense. It comes from the FDA and reputable medical and other sources.
