“If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” -John 8:31-32
I write this with a little bit of humor mixed with a heavy dose of sorrow. I’ve been noticing so many admissions lately that I’m sometimes baffled at how the experts were wrong on so much of what they predicted and promised. They seem to gloss over the extent of their failures and continue making predictions and promises without missing a beat though. I want to catalog these failures because I think it’s important to take note and not live in a perpetual state of forgetfulness even if that seems to be the general state of society these days.
However, being right about what we predicted and seeing the devastating results brings very little pleasure. I feel a little cynical and sarcastic about the whole thing today, so fair warning I will try to reel in the snark, but I make no promises.
I would like to begin with the conspiracy theory manifesto, otherwise known as The Great Barrington Declaration.
Among the predictions listed in this document, we have these quotes:
“As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of prevailing COVID-19 policies.”
“Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long term public health…with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice.” 
This declaration was written by 3 people (and signed by thousands): Dr Jay Battacharya, an epidemiologist, professor of medicine at Stanford University, and a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, Dr Sunetra Gupta, infectious disease epidemiologist, professor of epidemiology at Oxford University, has received a scientific medal from London, and the Rosalind Franklin Award of the Royal Society. She is a member of the scientific advisory board that examines the global impact of Covid 19 restrictions, and Martin Kulldorf, a biostatistician, a professor of medicine at Harvard University from 2003-2021, epidemiologist with expertise in detecting and monitoring infectious disease outbreaks and vaccine safety evaluations being a current member of the the FDA risk management advisory committee, and a former member of the CDC’s ACIP (Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices).
They wrote the declaration in October 2020 and we now have the leaked emails so we know the response to this from Francis Collins (the current head of the NIH) to Fauci. 
Of course we can see the name calling started early, right in the email with calling them “fringe epidemiologists.” If scientists working at Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard with that list of credentials are fringe…I don’t know where that leaves the rest of the experts we’re supposed to listen to.
Shortly after these emails exchanged hands we see the smear campaign online with name calling gems such as “antivaccine fanatics and mutating conspiracy theorists”, comparing these scientists to “Creationists and climate deniers” calling them “Covid Deniers” and “right wing”. These labels are almost compliments now in my own view, but it’s pretty obvious most of them are completely untrue when said of these scientists.
So where are we now? Can we even differentiate where the damage comes from? How can we measure any of this with the level of obfuscation we’re facing?
I always have disclaimers so here’s the first one: I don’t pretend to point to one issue as the cause to the mass destruction we’re seeing. I know this is multifaceted.
Second disclaimer: I’m not simply pointing away from Covid. I know Covid itself has been devastating in some ways. I do not deny long haul covid. My own sister has been suffering for months from the complications she has suffered as a result of catching it when she was already vulnerable and recovering from a pretty severe accident and the resultant health issues. I don’t deny that depression, brain fog, and other mental health issues can be caused and exacerbated by Covid. I even believe that for some it can be very crippling. I’ve admitted this freely before. 
However! Disclaimer to my disclaimer now: if you’ve had Covid and also been vaccinated, your symptoms mean very little to me as far as blaming them on Covid. Read the spike protein section in my blog post on the vaccines for a detailed and scientifically backed explanation of why I have come to this conclusion.
Now I shall attempt to break this down a little bit. I’m not going to be covering deaths or longterm effects from Covid. The media has been extremely effective in over blowing every single concern related to the virus. We know the exaggerated death counts, the case counts that mean very little when done via PCR testing, and long haul Covid which I believe is a mixture of actual difficulty clearing the spike protein from both Covid itself and being vaccinated and then endlessly boosted. I don’t see the necessity of covering all of this. I’ve already tried to balance out the truth with how they twist and stretch it in previous posts and if you want numbers they should be readily available here and elsewhere.
I will focus mainly on lockdowns and then there will be a section on all cause mortality and then I’ll finish up with some recent admissions about the vaccines that I never expected.
So what are we learning about lockdowns?
Let’s start with a study from February of this year published by John Hopkins (another fringe establishment *snort*) stating unequivocally that lockdowns did “more harm than good.” 
“Overall, we conclude that lockdowns are not an effective way of reducing mortality rates during a pandemic…”
“The evidence fails to confirm that lockdowns have a significant effect in reducing COVID-19 mortality. The effect is little to none.”
“They have contributed to reducing economic activity, raising unemployment, reducing schooling, causing political unrest, contributing to domestic violence, and undermining liberal democracy. These costs to society must be compared to the benefits of lockdowns, which our meta-analysis has shown are marginal at best. Such a standard benefit-cost calculation leads to a strong conclusion: lockdowns should be rejected out of hand as a pandemic policy instrument.” 
For the record, a meta analysis (the design of this study) is the highest form of scientific evidence available. 
Meanwhile, Fauci is responding to this a month later with denials that we’ll ever know if the costs outweighed the benefits. [7, 8]
I’ve never seen an expert who has a harder time staying up to date with the science. It’s beyond the point of embarrassment by now, but onward we stumble through the fog of not knowing things that are blatantly obvious.
Let’s harken back to the days when schools closed down. In May of 2020, CNN was telling us that 48 states were ordering/recommending that schools stay shut starting in the fall. 
In August of 2020, Peter Hotez was having a predictable meltdown, claiming that opening schools would be “guaranteed to fail.” 
Direct quote from the article: “But “we don’t need additional information to make decisions,” Hotez insisted. Right now, he said, there are at least 40 states in which schools simply should not open. “Remember, schools are not hermetically sealed … We need to reach containment first. It’s that simple.”
That simple indeed.
The fear mongering worked and even May of last year, teachers unions were bullying the CDC to keep schools closed and they succeeded.
“The lobbying paid off. In at least two instances, language “suggestions” offered by the union were adopted nearly verbatim into the final text of the CDC document.”
The AFT (American Federation of Teachers) loved the final draft with all of their demands met but, “Many others, however, were puzzled and angered by what they saw as the CDC willfully ignoring the science and slow-walking a return to in-person learning even as mounting evidence showed schools were not a primary source of coronavirus infections as long as they followed mitigation strategies.” 
In the UK we have similar scare tactics with an Independent Scientific Pandemic Group on Behaviors  hired by their government to advise on how best to acquire some good old fear based control of their citizens only to have this group turn whistleblower and expose the tactics as “totalitarian.” 
And now we’re seeing headlines like this tweet from the Economist stating, “New data suggest that the damage from shutting down schools has been worse than almost anyone expected.” 
“Almost anyone” ends up being quite a large group that was in fact very vocal but got ignored or labeled conspiracy theorists. I added my own voice in July 2020 if you want to sift through some of the published science supporting our stance even at that point in time. Find it here.
They’re finding that “Covid learning loss has been a global disaster,” and “millions of children are still out of school.” 
Even babies born during the pandemic are being effected by lower IQs and “significantly reduced motor, verbal and overall cognitive performance compared to children born before.” 
“…compared with the historical cohort, infants born during the pandemic had significantly lower scores on gross motor, fine motor, and personal-social subdomains in fully adjusted models.” 
And no, these are not side effects from Covid:
“Not surprising, there has been concern over how these factors, as well as missed educational opportunities and reduced interaction, stimulation, and creative play with other children might impact child neurodevelopment. Leveraging a large ongoing longitudinal study of child neurodevelopment, we examined general childhood cognitive changes in 2020 and 2021 vs the preceding decade, 2011-2019. We find that children born during the pandemic have significantly reduced verbal, motor, and overall cognitive performance compared to children born pre-pandemic.
Moreover, we find that males and children in lower socioeconomic families have been most affected. Results highlight that even in the absence of direct SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 illness, the environmental changes associated COVID-19 pandemic is significantly and negatively affecting infant and child development.” 
They’re actually saying this is due to mothers’ stress, not Covid diagnosis. “No differences were found in scores between infants exposed to the virus in the womb and those whose mothers did not contract it. But average scores in social and motor skills were lower than 62 pre-pandemic infants born at the same hospitals.” 
A psychotherapist from The Hart Group is making the statement that “the emotional health of future generations was sacrificed on the Covid alter.” 
The UK is saying “…the pandemic drove 60,000 more secondary school children into clinical depression.” 
The CDC recently issued “a cry for help” with findings of a steep decline in teen mental health with 4 in 10 saying they feel persistently sad and hopeless and 1 in 5 contemplating suicide. 
The American Academy of Pediatrics, the Children’s Hospital Association and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, which together represent more than 77,000 physicians and 200 children’s hospitals penned their own declaration recently, announcing a national emergency due to mental health crises among kids. 
NHS mental health services are so swamped they’re actually turning away children. The numbers are alarming:
- 95% of GPs say that CAMHS services are either in crisis (46%) or very inadequate (49%) – up from 90% when stem4 ran the same survey in 2018 and 85% in 2016
- Half say that at least six in 10 referrals they make for anxiety, depression, conduct disorder and self-harm are routinely rejected because the young people’s symptoms are deemed not severe enough, even though they only refer the most at-risk cases
- One in four say that 60%-100% of referrals for eating disorders and addictions are rejected. 
U.S. hospitals are currently overwhelmed by teens in mental health crises. 
Read that again. Hospitals are currently not overwhelmed by Covid patients. They’re overwhelmed by teens in mental health crises. Who is going to panic about overwhelmed hospitals now? No one? I thought not.
Apparently recovery resources for addicts and substance abusers weren’t considered essential during the lockdowns so the ABC stores stayed open but those resources were shut down which is leading to massive overdose deaths. The deaths have “nearly doubled.” 
People are actually drinking more because of pandemic stress. 
Which brings us to this study finding an increase in AUD (alcohol use disorder) deaths:
“By comparing observed and projected mortality rates, we noticed a surge in AUD mortality both overall and among all subgroups during the pandemic.
The observed AUD-related mortality rates increased by 24.79% in 2020 and 21.95% in 2021 vs the projected rates. Increased mortality rates were evident even when AUD was set as the underlying cause of death (30.74% in 2020 vs 28.77% in 2021).
In this study, the youngest age group (25-44 years) demonstrated the largest increase in AUD mortality (40.47% in 2020 vs 33.95% in 2021) across all age groups. 
“Experts say the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the problem as lockdowns and other restrictions isolated those with drug addictions and made treatment harder to get.” 
A fun exercise might be looking at states with the strictest lockdowns and seeing what the resultant death rate is from overdoses and depression related deaths. Here’s just one example I found interesting: Vermont is the very bottom of the list when we rank “fewest Covid restrictions.”  Said another way, that means they had the most Covid restrictions. Did you know they’re also leading the US in “pandemic overdose death rate?” 
The WHO is blaming the pandemic for a 25% increase in prevalence of anxiety and depression worldwide. 
This study from Israel is showing that even when lockdown measures are lifted, people are having a lot of difficulty adapting and that depression is the main drawback. 
The mental health consequences of lockdowns are obviously catastrophic. But what about the physical consequences? What about the consequences in children?
Last summer we saw something we’ve never seen before: an RSV surge in the summer. It’s readily admitted it was because of lockdowns that we saw this phenomenon.
Immunity debt is the term being used to describe what happens when children aren’t exposed to the usual amounts of bacteria and viruses. They end up getting everything at once when that debt is due. It doesn’t matter that summer should be infection free and a time to be enjoyed. Instead, many families were in and out of hospitals because their children were severely ill with (mostly) RSV. 
And then we have “mystery hepatitis” surging in children this year. This is being linked to an adenovirus that has not mutated and hasn’t previously been able to cause this level of liver damage and has actually killed at least one child. 
“Less social mixing due to two years of covid restrictions may be a factor in an “unusual” and serious outbreak of acute liver disease among young children, scientists believe.
A total of 74 children in the UK, mostly under the age of five, have contracted a version of acute hepatitis which is not linked to normal strains of the disease, while dozens of cases have now been identified in the US, Europe and Israel. Six children in the UK have required liver transplant.
Cases of adenovirus in children were far lower than normal in 2020 and remained below the average in 2021, and experts believe it is “possible” that the lack of exposure to the virus in infants due to lockdown may have lowered their immunity, meaning they are suffering worse effects now that restrictions are lifted.” 
I would like to finish this section with a statement I firmly believe is true: there is something wrong with a civilization who is willing to sacrifice its children for the benefit of everyone else. A healthy, sane group of people would focus first and foremost on protecting our children.
Skyrocketing All Cause Mortality
We’re actually gleaning the evidence of all cause mortality rising at alarming rates mostly from insurance companies. The CEO of One America is quoted here:
“We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business – not just at OneAmerica,” the company’s CEO Scott Davison said during an online news conference this week. “The data is consistent across every player in that business.”
Davison said the increase in deaths represents “huge, huge numbers,” and that’s it’s not elderly people who are dying, but “primarily working-age people 18 to 64” who are the employees of companies that have group life insurance plans through OneAmerica.
“And what we saw just in third quarter, we’re seeing it continue into fourth quarter, is that death rates are up 40% over what they were pre-pandemic,” he said.
“Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be 10% increase over pre-pandemic,” he said. “So 40% is just unheard of.” 
And once again, this cannot be blamed on Covid. 
An independent journalist did a deep dive into this data and has published an account including the fact that the fifth largest insurance company here in the US has had to pay out “163% more for deaths in 2021–total claims/benefits up 6 BILLION.”
The company is saying these are not Covid deaths: “non-pandemic-related morbidity” and “unusual claims adjustments” in explanation of losses…”
“How many deaths are represented by the 163% increase? It is not possible to determine by the dollar figures on the statements.
But the average death benefit for employer-provided group life insurance, according to the Society for Human Resource Management, is one year’s salary.
If the average annual salary of people covered by group life insurance policies in the United States is $70,000, this may represent 20,647 deaths of working adults, covered by just this one insurance company. This would represent at least 10,000 more deaths than in a normal year for just this one company.” 
Speaking of insurance companies, I just have to sneak in this report from a German health insurer published this February:
“The data available to our company gives us reason to believe that there is a very considerable under-recording of suspected cases of vaccination side-effects after they received the [COVID-19] vaccine.”
“If these figures are applied to the year as a whole and to the entire population of Germany, Schöfbeck estimated, then “probably 2.5-3 million people in Germany been under medical treatment because of vaccination side effects after [COVID-19] vaccination.” 
This headline says millenials experienced a “Vietnam war” according to CDC data in the second half of 2021. 
The article goes on to note, “The Millennials, about ages 25 to 40, experienced an 84% increase in excess mortality in the fall, he said, describing it as the “worst-ever excess mortality, I think, in history.
It was the highest increase in excess deaths of any age group last year, seven times higher than the Silent Generation, those who are older than 85.”
New Zealand is seeing a 10% increase in excess mortality. Ironically, the study was done to analyze the impact of rolling out booster doses. 
“Hundreds more people than usual are dying each week in England and Wales with Covid not to blame for the majority of deaths, new figures show.” 
We have so many young people dropping dead, the experts have coined a new term: SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome); defined as “when a person under the age of 40 years old suffers a sudden death without a known cause after an autopsy and toxicology screen (drug test).” 
Doctors are baffled (dazed and confused) by all these healthy young people suddenly dropping dead. It’s all so confusing and puzzling. We just have no idea what’s going on. 
While we’re on the subject of experts making themselves ridiculous, the rise in blood clots is causing speculation ranging from blaming it on black tea , TV watching, and hot weather, to sleeping positions. (That last one was actually fact checked so you know you can trust it.) Also physical activity and gardening are now risk factors for heart disease?
There’s been a five fold increase of sudden death among FIFA athletes in 2021. 
The numbers just keep rising as time goes on. 
No one can honestly look at the differences in all cause mortality comparing 2020 and 2021 and beyond, taking into account the variants we’ve been dealing with in that timeframe and not wonder what is going on (or if you’re brave you admit lockdowns and vaccines are killing millions of people). We know it’s not Covid. Those deaths are all very much accounted for. These are death rates that make Covid disappear in the rear view as we’re confronted by true devastation.
Let’s start this section with a recent study that takes away a symptom we widely believed to be caused by Covid but doesn’t actually stand in real life.
I’ve been told over and over that yes, the vaccines cause myocarditis and pericarditis but so does Covid. I hadn’t seen that panning out, but I never argued the point very much. Turns out there’s very little evidence for it and this study debunks that claim.
This was a very large study that compared Covid recovered individuals who were unvaccinated against a control group who tested negative and never tested positive. They followed this group from 10 days after they tested positive for 6 months.
They conclude: “In the current large population study of subjects, who were not vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2, we observed no increase in the incidence of myocarditis or pericarditis from day 10 after positive SARS-CoV-2.”
“Our data suggest that there is no increase in the incidence of myocarditis and pericarditis in COVID-19 recovered patients compared to uninfected matched controls.”
Actually, the control group ended up having higher rates of myo/pericarditis than the Covid recovered group: “Nine post-COVID-19 patients developed myocarditis (0.0046%), and eleven patients were diagnosed with pericarditis (0.0056%). In the control cohort, 27 patients had myocarditis (0.0046%) and 52 had pericarditis (0.0088%).” 
I think it’s safe to say the heart problems suddenly happening in previously perfectly healthy young individuals is not being caused by Covid.
I went over the undeniable evidence (admitted by the CDC) proving myocarditis is caused by the vaccines in a previous post if you want to go over that information.
Remember when the experts mocked anyone having concerns about how these vaccines would effect our fertility? The fact checkers came out in full force on male fertility, saying there was no evidence that it would be effected in any way. 
Now this study was published showing the Pfizer vaccine does indeed “impair semen concentration and total motile count among semen donors.”
They saw a total motile count reduction of 22% compared to before they got vaccinated.
They say this is “temporary” and the men “recover” their semen after 3 months but when you start looking at the tables, you see it only recovers by 3% by the end of the 150 days where this study ends, and is still 19.4% below the level they had pre-vaccination. 
That doesn’t sound like “temporary” or “recovered” to me, but scientists are so optimistic these days, at least when it comes to vaccine side effects.
Another thing I remember from last year is people losing their Instagram accounts for allowing women to share their stories of menstrual changes after Covid vaccination. These accounts were accused of spreading misinformation because God forbid we allow women to share their experiences. “Believe all women,” but apparently not these women.
Now they admit oops, “Menstrual changes after Covid vaccines may be far more common than previously known.” It was actually close to half the women who had gotten the vaccine having issues according to a survey.
“An analysis published Friday in the journal Science Advances found that 42% of people with regular menstrual cycles said they bled more heavily than usual after vaccination.
Among nonmenstruating people — those post-menopause or who use certain long-term contraceptives, for example — the study suggests many experienced breakthrough or unexpected bleeding after their Covid shots.” 
Bleeding after years of menopause? I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about.
“Asymptomatic spread” has all but been completely debunked when it comes to catching the virus naturally and still we want to mask and social distance from healthy people. But now this new study out of Israel is making me wonder if asymptomatic spread might be a thing after all. “31% of boosted individuals are still contagious 10 days post infection vs only 6% of the unvaccinated.”
“At five days post-infection, less than 25 percent of unvaccinated people were still contagious, whereas around 70 percent of boosted people were still carrying viable virus particles. For those partially vaccinated, around 50 percent were still contagious at this point.
“In other words, people who have received a booster shot are five times more likely still to be contagious at ten days post-infection than are unvaccinated people.” 
And last but certainly not least (this might actually be the most important part), we have this study looking at trial data from the Moderna and Pfizer trials, now that the FDA’s plea to hide the data for 75 years has been denied. 
This study actually shows that according to clinical trial data, the risk of the vaccine from serious adverse events is higher than any measured benefit. Let me explain why this is so significant. You see, a clinical trial is always the best case scenario for a drug. Much more so for a vaccine. Everything is controlled. I’ve covered the clinical trials and how sloppy and inadequate they were in previous posts so I won’t belabor this, but even just the fact that clinical trials are done on only healthy individuals to then be given to everyone once it’s been approved—that alone is only one of the factors that skews findings in favor of clinical trials for vaccines, never mind the short duration, the fraud, the missing numbers, and all the rest I’ll refrain from getting into right now. The fact that this conclusion can be drawn from looking at the clinical trial data explains why they’ve been wanting to hide this information from scientists like Peter Doshi (editor of one of the most prestigious medical journals in the world) who are capable of taking a closer look and publishing those findings.
He concludes, “Combined, the mRNA vaccines were associated with an absolute risk increase of serious adverse events of special interest of 12.5 per 10,000 (95% CI 2.1 to 22.9). The excess risk of serious adverse events of special interest surpassed the risk reduction for COVID-19 hospitalization relative to the placebo group in both Pfizer and Moderna trials (2.3 and 6.4 per 10,000 participants, respectively).” 
Contrasting that with real world data, this recent study out of the UK is saying that after the third dose (first booster), they’re seeing negative efficacy. There are multiple studies like this both after second doses (once antibodies wane) but all of them seem to see the same thing on that third dose. It does nothing to protect and actually makes you more vulnerable. “Negative efficacy” means it makes you more likely to catch Covid and it makes you more vulnerable to a severe case and death. Even from omicron which has been extremely mild for most people.
“The vaccine effectiveness (VE) for the third dose was in negative since December 20, 2021, with a significantly increased proportion of SARS-CoV2 cases hospitalizations and deaths among the vaccinated; and a decreased proportion of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths among the unvaccinated.” 
To contrast, natural immunity is miles beyond this. According to the latest studies, it is still 97% effective against severe disease after 14 months and the vaccinated had a 13 fold risk increase for catching even delta compared to those naturally immune. [57, 58] Vaccines can’t touch natural immunity. They’ve never been able to.
So here we are. I know that to many, the experts being so woefully inept and wrong on so many levels will make no difference. This interview is a perspective on why that is from a psychologist who offers an incredibly compassionate and fascinating explanation on what makes us vulnerable to mass formation. I highly recommend listening to this interview to more fully understand the dynamic of totalitarianism and how we as a population help or hinder it.
But to those of us on the fringe to whom the facts still matter and the truth is so important, it is sometimes reassuring to take stock. To remember what was said by whom and to see the results of these policies and to be thankful that we remained free from encouraging and participating in those measures.
I’m so fascinated lately by the fact that the truth sets us free and what that looks like lived out. I think that freedom gained from knowing truth is a confidence that leads out in peace and love and compassion. It starts first with me. Taking responsibility for living out what God wants me to do. It is free of control and force and manipulation. We need not coerce. We need not silence. We speak because of our moral obligation to the truth, not necessarily to convince anyone. We can say our piece and then back off and remain free of the need to control. The opposite of freedom is control. The bondage of fear. The driving need to force. When you have the truth, the freedom and peace overcome the need for control.
God bless you all as you keep searching for the truth and taking responsibility for where God wants you to stand. Much love. ♥️
