The eradication of the brutal smallpox virus is, rightfully so, regarded as one of the great achievements of modern man. But the lesser known story of the smallpox vaccine after smallpox was eradicated is an informative story with lots of lessons that pertain to vaccine safety monitoring and mass vaccination campaigns that were clearly forgotten, or ignored over the last 2 years.
As an alternative view, I propose today's post by Dr. Kevin Stillwagon:
"Following is an address by William Howard Haye, MD, that was printed in the congressional record on June 25, 1937. He was reading from the book “Food or Drugs” by Dr. Paul M Koonin:
“The true figures on vaccination for smallpox have never gone before the public, though they can be seen in the files of the various departments of the army as well as the government, if one cares to ask for them. If the record of vaccination in the Philippines alone were ever to become matter of general knowledge, it would finish vaccinations in the whole country, at least among those who are able to read and think for themselves.
After three years of the most rigid vaccination, when almost every little brown man had been vaccinated from one to six times, there occurred the severest epidemic of smallpox that the islands had ever seen, with death rate in places running to almost 60% and in all, well over 60,000 deaths."
“Manila and the surrounding province were vaccinated most thoroughly, and they showed the highest case records and death record of the whole archipelago, while some of the outlying country was not so thoroughly vaccinated and escaped with proportionately less disease.
The only epidemic of smallpox it was ever my misfortune to attend, comprised thirty-three cases, with twenty-nine of vaccination history, some recent, and the unvaccinated cases did not have the disease in any more severe form than did those with vaccination history, even those of recent history.
For vaccination does NOT protect against smallpox, though it does much harm aside from its uselessness.”
For an even better overview, I suggest A Midwestern Doctor's posts on smallpox vaccination:
Thank you for the thoughtful analysis and commentary. Valuable read indeed.
"There is little doubt that there are cases of cardiac injury being discovered now".
Please note that pediatric blood draws are associated with much higher incidence of hemolysis than adults (21% vs 5). Hemolysis is one of the causes of spurious HS-cTnT elevation (just like spurious hyperkalemia in hemolyses sample has zero clinical significance until repeated and verified). Those 4 cases had normal CRP, normal CK-MB, and normal Echo.
In clinical practice HS-cTnT has been elevated in situations where confirmation by traditional cTnT is negative (completely normal range). Subsequent cardiac testing has invariably been completely normal even with patients having symptoms suspicious for ACS. How much more relevant is this false positive for asymptomatic cases?
Also, there is a very serious ethical dilemma:
If the investigators deemed the 4 cases of elevated HS-cTnT to be "subclinical myocarditis", why was CMR not performed? The elevation is in the rage of poor specificity for myocarditis by CMR.
If asymptomatic subclinical myocarditis after COVID_19 vaccination is the issue from this Thai study, would that not also support asymptomatic surveillance PCR testing in schools and universities for SARS-CoV2 since CMR proven subclinical myocarditis has been found in PCR+ students with no symptoms of COVID-19 disease?
Study could have been stronger (more convincing) if:
1. They repeated samples with elevated HS-cTnT (if CRP, CK-MB are normal) to address potential spurious elevation due to hemolysis
2. They performed CMR in all cases of suspected subclinical myocarditis
3. They explicitly cited references to validate their methodology of HS-TnT in pediatric population for *screening* of subclinical myocarditis (explicitly discuss sensitivity and specificity for + levels in that range)
Regardless, most of us agree:
1. This type of study SHOULD have been conducted in the US and been mandated by CDC / FDA prior to granting EUA, let alone full BLA approval in adolescents and young adults
2. School and university Vx mandates should cease and desist as they may be causing more harm than good
3. The topic of VAM is of grave concern and warrants heightened suspicion and caution given the age group is at very low risk of severe COVID complications.
Appreciate your work. Thank you.
Not to be pedantic, but 9/11 wasn't an attack.
It was a psyop involving the controlled demolition of the 3 buildings, a missile strike into the pentagon and the "digital insertion" or "made for TV special effects" of "planes into towers" like a hot knife into butter, along with a few planted "shills" who claimed to see the non-existent planes hit the towers.
9/11 was a psyop, just as Event 201, aka C19 is a psyop, decades in the planning.
The virus, in the case of Event 201, IS the positive test results, no virus necessary, and "omicron" is the cover for vax damage
Thank you for your valuable substack. I would appreciate it if you have any guidance for my 52-year old healthy brother who received the booster last December.
A few days ago, he was traveling on a plane when he became hot, sweaty, and blacked out. Paramedics took him to the ER. EKG, bloodwork, chest x-ray normal, but pulse was low (49) and continues to be low.
He has not had any problems until seven months after his booster. Wondering if this was caused by the vax...or if causation doesn't make a difference for treatment purposes.
Thank you for any advice you might be willing to offer.
