This is Part One of a series. Read Part Two here. Read Part Three here.

“What is happening now, for whatever reason, is not even close to normal.”

That’s what Tucker Carlson claimed, at any rate, prompting outraged denials from the old-guard media and those self-appointed “fact-checkers” who sprung up out of nowhere a few years back, claiming to be the final arbiters of truth.

Carlson was referring to the unusually large number of reports of people who’ve died after getting vaccinated for COVID-19 piling up in the CDC’s official database, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

And, if nothing else, we learned that those who control which facts and figures become objects of national obsession — those who most of us will never hear a word about — are hell-bent on keeping the VAERS data firmly in the latter camp.

As of May 28, VAERS contains 4,561 reports of post-Covid jab fatalities.

That’s liable to not sound like very much if, like virtually everyone, you’ve never heard of VAERS.

After all, though most folks have been mesmerized into pretending otherwise about COVID-19 itself, we all know dying with isn’t really the same thing as dying from.

Nor is dying after.

So, given that around 8,000 Americans ordinarily perish in a single day, what’s so odd about finding 4,500 post-vaccination fatalities in five months during which time half the country got jabbed?

The attempts to portray Carlson as a malignant demagogue fomenting unjustified panic about a perfectly harmless but absolutely essential drug all leaned heavily on that point.

The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake was typical:

The fact is that lots of people have received the vaccine — so many that plenty were going to die of something in the months that followed. [Washington Post]

But the pack of media scoundrels desperately yelling, “Nothing to see here!” are the ones playing fast and loose with the facts.

Indeed, they’ve resorted to so much deception to ensure that Carlson’s report gives birth to no wider discussion that their evident zeal to hide this year’s extraordinary increase in adverse event reports — for which the Covid vaccines are entirely responsible — raises even more disturbing questions than the data itself, as troubling as it is.

Massive Undercounting of Potential Side Effects

VAERS is what’s called a passive surveillance system, meaning that instead of actively searching for potential side-effects, it relies entirely on voluntary reporting.

And, though neither Blake nor any of the others determined to stifle discussion mention it, Carlson explicitly noted that it’s been established for over a decade that VAERS’ detection rate is abysmal.

A report submitted to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in 2010 concluded that, quote, “Fewer than one percent of vaccine adverse events are reported by the VAER System.”

The report mentioned was the product of a million-dollar grant the Department of Health and Human Services gave some Harvard Medical School researchers to develop a computerized “active” system that would perform better than VAERS and then run randomized trials evaluating both.

The researchers don’t say how they arrived at that dismal 1% detection rate. But the data they do present paints an equally bleak picture.

From June 2006 through October 2009, they exhaustively searched for potential side effects among the 715,000 patients of Atrius Health, “a large multi-specialty group practice with over 35 facilities.”

Every patient receiving a vaccine was automatically identified, and for the next 30 days, their health care diagnostic codes, laboratory tests, and medication prescriptions were evaluated for values suggestive of an adverse vaccine event. [AHRQ.Gov]

Around half wound up getting some type of vaccine, and 35,570 potential adverse side effects were identified. Yet for the same period, VAERS recorded only around 73,000 within 30 days of vaccination in the entire country.

In other words, in a population 420 times as large, VAERS only managed to capture fewer than twice as many potential vaccine adverse events.

Feature or Bug?

No one should be surprised by the Harvard team’s findings. A system of voluntary reporting about which hardly anyone even knows is, after all, bound to miss virtually everything.

Nor is VAERS obscurity restricted to the general public. A 2013 study by researchers from the CDC itself found that almost 30% of health care professionals had never heard of it. Among those who’d come across a potential vaccine side effect and had, a jarring 83% still failed to file any report.

Yet, according to the CDC, VAERS is supposed to be  “the nation’s frontline system for monitoring vaccine safety,” raising the obvious question:

Why on earth is the CDC still using a passive surveillance system proven completely worthless over a decade ago that anyone could see was bound to massively undercount potential side effects, as nothing has been done to ensure public awareness of such a reporting system in the first place? 

And, unfortunately, the only answer seems to be that, for whatever dark reason, that’s exactly what the CDC wants.

And not just because they’ve made no effort to publicize VAERS and increase the dismal reporting rate among medical professionals nor replaced it with something better.

Not only was the Harvard team’s automated system never adopted. They weren’t even able to run the clinical trials comparing its effectiveness to VAERS’ because — after spending three years and a million taxpayer dollars — they found themselves ghosted by the CDC:

Unfortunately, there was never an opportunity to perform system performance assessments because the necessary CDC contacts were no longer available and the CDC consultants responsible for receiving data were no longer responsive to our multiple requests to proceed with testing and evaluation. [AHRQ.Gov]

Truncated Safety Trials Sans Legal Liability

Because only six months of safety data is required for FDA approval, a “frontline system” for detecting potential side effects after vaccines go on the market that actually works is important.

But with regard to the COVID-19 vaccines, none of which even has FDA approval, the need is orders of magnitude greater.

If you’re surprised to hear about that lack of FDA approval, don’t blame yourself. The fact that the vaccine has only received what’s called an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)  — like so much else about COVID-19 — is being systematically suppressed.

Anthony Fauci even lied on camera (yet again) when asked, “Which of the COVID-19 vaccines have been officially approved by the FDA?”

“Three of them,” replied Fauci, naming the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines that, in reality, only have EUAs. Something the odious little man was later forced to admit when the podcast host — who’d actually done his homework — called him out.

But you can understand why Fauci thought he could get away with lying given how rarely the media mentions any COVID-19 vaccine regulatory deficiencies.

Neither the flagship New York Times nor the Washington Post even bothered doing so in their stories announcing that the first Covid vaccine was going on the market. And though CNN was a rare exception, they made the difference between an EUA and FDA approval sound like some trifling bureaucratic formality:

Pfizer would have to file a separate application for its vaccine to be fully licensed by the FDA. [CNN]

What they’re not mentioning is all the neglected safety testing which that separate application would need to include.

A biologics license application required for FDA approval requires six months of data. But for COVID-19, the EUA requirement was cut down to only two months.

Another crucial piece of information being withheld raising the stakes even further. CNBC headlined one of the rare media stories mentioning that you can’t sue Pfizer or Moderna if you have severe Covid vaccine side effects. The government likely won’t compensate you for damages either.

Nor will you be able to sue Johnson & Johnson or anyone else lucky enough to wind up in the very lucrative Covid vaccine business. The manufacturers and federal government have so much confidence in that truncated two months of safety testing that the former were granted the same immunity from liability the FDA already has.

And, of course, once again, not a finger has been lifted to make sure the American people know that, should anything go wrong, they’ve no one but themselves to legally blame — making the notion of informed consent the cruelest of jokes.

Making matters worse, when a vaccine goes on the market with only an EUA, the FDA is required to ensure that anyone taking it knows it’s only been authorized for emergency use, and apprise them of any known risks, as well as to the extent to which risks are unknown.

And it’s a bit tough to see how that duty could have possibly been discharged when hardly anyone even knows that the Covid vaccines were only granted an EUA.

Or that the reason was the long-term safety testing required for FDA approval wasn’t done.

Or that the manufacturers are immune from liability should that or any other deficiency prove tragic.

Or, for that matter — as another person the media has tried to silence, Alex Berenson, noted — that in the five months since the first vaccine hit the market, there have already been almost as many reports of post-Covid vaccine deaths than for every other vaccine combined in the database’s entire 30-year history.

You see, all those big media outlets and “fact-checkers” claiming it’s irresponsible to bring a mere 4,000 deaths to the public’s attention aren’t just ignoring VAERS’ abysmal detection rate.

They’re also lying through misdirection about what those they seek to silence think it’s important that you know.

It’s the jaw-dropping increase in COVID-vaccine reports, not the absolute number, that Tucker Carlson, Alex Berenson, and others are getting hammered for trying to alert you about.

Here’s a picture that ought to be worth a thousand very disconcerting words.

That’s what the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, PolitiFact, and a host of less influential outlets are trying to tell you isn’t worth noticing.

Or rather, that’s what they’re trying to hide from you when they focus solely on the absolute number of post-Covid vaccine death reports without mentioning that there have already been more submitted in just five months than in the previous 27 years for all other vaccines combined.

And it’s not because more Covid vaccines were administered than other vaccines. More were jabbed for the flu in just the last season alone. And that’s not even considering all the other 55 available vaccines.

It’s unquestionable that Tucker Carlson was right. Something extraordinary is occurring. Anyone denying it would look like an idiot. So they lie about what the issue is instead, then lie some more to tear down the strawman they’ve built. Another tactic they use is to vilify anyone trying to make the real cause of concern public with terms like “far-right extremist.”

It’s of course possible that this extraordinary data has some harmless explanation. But it’s also possible it represents a profoundly serious problem. Especially since VAERS’ apparently intentional lousy detection rate means we’ve no clue what the real number of adverse events even is.

We won’t have answers until someone takes the time to find them.

And the fact that no one in charge seems to give a damn and, indeed, that they sit back in silence as the world’s most influential news outlets flagrantly lie in a desperate effort to stop the public from even learning there’s anything that needs explaining is, as we’ll see, merely the first of many signs that a rushed-to-market deadly vaccine, as bad as that would be, is the least of our worries.

Bye evil NaziChop, and all your fifty fake IDs! Be forewarned if some newbie happens upon this totally dead board: everyone but me is going to be the same evil man who hates Jesus and hates America. We called him NaziChop because he is totally evil and has expressed his desire to mass murder anyone who disagrees with him, yet he still has not been properly banned by Darren of Revolver News. Terrible. Don't bother posting here or he will attack you too.

Thanks for the warning. I sensed there was something really off about this board. I will refrain from posting here until Revolver does the right thing and ban this troll for good.

Perhaps most will "just" become lifetime pharma customers. They will never make the connection because their doctors will tell them their new illness has nothing to do with the shots, and they will believe it, and they will line up for every booster shot, because "it's better than dying of corona!"

Who would have thought we'd have a rogue government in the US of A. The glaring optics emanating from everything they do within and without our borders is chaos. The breadth and depth of it clearly shows international players are operating 24/7, in concert with our own anti American politicians to shake loose every mooring securing us to our Western Civ roots. There's going to be a shot heard around the world. Can't wait.

Fantastic report, Dr. McCullough has spoken out recently you can find his interview on Rumble/Bitchute. I follow Dr. Tenpenny/Dr. Lee Merritt for more in depth info on this *vaccine* and what is going on-rumble/Bitchute.
And I'm an NP that's been on the frontlines of Covid and now pushing these *vaccines*
I'm not antivax and have been in medicine for over 20 years and NEVER seen or witnessed such a suppression of information and a complete shutting down of those asking thoughtful/pertinent questions. It's as though the Majority of the entire medical community is under a spell or in a trance of complete lack of logic/common sense or reasoning.
Big Pharma owns all of medical academia including the big medical journals, obviously TV/commercials and Congress. And they own the three letter government agencies.
That's a big part of the suppression in my opinion. People need to keep their jobs so they stay quiet.
My suggestion-listen to those that have been suppressed and stuck their necks out, especially early on. At least listen to them before you make a decision on your health. Otherwise you will be setting yourself up to be a Big Pharma customer for life.

Just commented above about how my pregnant daughter's internist (not her OB/GYN) tried to talk her into the shot today. Spent 30 minutes trying to "warn her" about the "long lasting after effects of covid" even though she told him she had it early last year and… what difference, even if that were true, would the experimental shot make? Plus, she wants a healthy baby. He was horrible and it's difficult to believe he is a serious doctor. Whatever happened to "do no harm?"

The whole vaccine issue is way beyond the virus. There is clearly another reason to force this shot upon the world. The vaccine is based on a defunct virus, the variants have now changed it to a new virus. There have been more deaths on this vaccine than ALL the vaccines in history. Thats the story. Wait 6 to 9 months and start counting those deaths too…

Lol, Mountie, best. comment. ever. Seriously, though, Darren is going to have to get control of the commenting system somehow. I know he doesn't want to have to moderate, but he could get an intelligent intern to do it. Between the troll downvoting and the constant "Nazi-Chop" references, the comments section is a bit of a mess. Which is a shame, because the articles are so well written. Michael Thau is one of my favorite writers.

You should, that was a great comment. Seriously, though, the comments software or system probably has a feature where voting can be turned off. That would take care of the downvoting trolls or bots. And isn't it interesting that one can see the identities that are upvoting, but not the downvoting? And wasn't it Faceschnook that first instituted the comment voting feature? One site that I know of only permits upvotes.

The more key concern, not mentioned, is how the normal practice of pulling a new drug from distribution if 15 or more related deaths are observed, has been entirely abandoned; which in this case would be to the tune of 230x more than that small number. And doctors have mentioned that the death count for the remainder of the world is about 11,000. All coincidental?

I couldn't find anything corroborating that there was any kind of policy in place. The way it's being presented is that, in prior cases where vaccines were pulled, it's because the VAERS data was investigated and some reason to suspect a link was found, whereas, with regard to the COVID vaccines investigation revealed no such link. I'm not buying any of this, but as I say couldn't verify that there used to be some policy in place that's now being breached. If you have a link showing that to be that case, let me know. — the Author

The press must grow day in and day out – it is our Party's sharpest and most powerful weapon.
Joseph Stalin..

The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses.
Vladimir Lenin..

Many people are not aware the communists have already taken over America.
OL' Nikita (no ,not the one in Elton John's song) many decades ao, banged his Kaepernicks on the UN's table and said "We'll take you over w/o firing a shot"
Many thought at the time he was talking about war. He was talking about a takeover by his American Komrades from w/in. It took sometime, but Rome was not built in a day.
If only Nikita had lived to see this daze..
Nikita would have been Glad.. And Sad. Sad the old USSR was gone. But glad Communist China have succeeded. Xi and his comrades have their hooks set deep into American pols — Big business– Hollywood and the Higher education system. Shucks, even their own American president.
It's not only the 3 Musketeers who believed in One for All and All for One.

Easily 40,000 to 40,000 dead Already from the jabs. But VAERS also has been dragging their feet in posting the one to ten percent of actual events they know about. A new data dump or update is sure to reveal a far higher base number but even then it won’t be up to date. It never seems to amaze me how humans complicate and obfuscate simple facts. The only logical answers to the why of this situation are threefold:

1. Intentional culling of the human population in the name of the “climate change” hoax
2. Same as above in order for the top 2% to own Everthing in the wake of the mass die-off of humanity
3. So the “stakeholders” in these poison shots can get filthy filthy filthy rich at the expense of every fool stupid enough to line up for the jabs.
