Proposed U.S. government censorship of vaccine misinformation, in partnership with Facebook, was announced during a recent White House press conference. White House wants Facebook to censor posts containing ‘COVID-19 misinformation’ | LiveNOW from FOX – YouTube. As people point fingers and accuse each other of censorship and misinformation, I hope to avoid further spreading vaccine misinformation about the White House spreading vaccine misinformation about the public spreading vaccine misinformation. So let’s straighten out this mess by first defining vaccine misinformation. The word truth comes to mind. As long as vaccine information is truthful, it is not misinformation. Furthermore, the whole truth must not leave out information in a way that misleads one to draw untruthful conclusions. 

For example, COVID-19 mRNA vaccines have a vaccine efficacy, or relative risk reduction, of approximately 95%. But the whole truth is that the mRNA vaccines also have a much lower absolute risk reduction of approximately 1%, which is more meaningful for clinical and public health purposes. Medicina | Free Full-Text | Outcome Reporting Bias in COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine Clinical Trials (mdpi.com).

Most COVID-19 cases also occur in unvaccinated people. But the whole truth is that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention no longer counts cases in vaccinated people unless they are hospitalized or die,  potentially undercounting millions of breakthrough infections in people receiving mRNA vaccines with practically no clinical efficacy. CDC’s biased undercount of COVID-19 breakthrough infections (trialsitenews.com). The whole truth also includes the fact that lower socioeconomic groups, having higher susceptibility to COVID-19 before vaccine availability, also have more vaccine hesitancy. AP analysis doesn’t prove COVID-19 vaccines prevent deaths (trialsitenews.com).

Let’s apply the whole truth about COVID-19 mRNA vaccines to the recent White House press conference, in which the spokesperson claimed that the vaccines save lives. Where is the clinical evidence proving this claim? The only causative proof we have of vaccine efficacy are the clinical trials, which demonstrated that vaccine groups had fewer infections with mild symptoms than unvaccinated groups. Death is hardly a mild symptom, and no conclusive estimates of death risk can be drawn from these trials. 

Nevertheless, White House misinformation that the COVID-19 vaccines save lives threatens to trample the public’s First Amendment rights of freedom of speech by censoring social media. After all, what good are First Amendment rights if you die from COVID-19 because you were convinced by someone’s Facebook blog to forego vaccination? In a statement that carefully avoided mention of misinformation censorship, Facebook boasted that it also saved lives by posting “authoritative information about COVID-19 and vaccines,” Facebook pushes back against White House criticism, says it’s ‘looking for scapegoats’ | TheHill

The problem, of course, is that arguments to save lives by censoring misinformation are awash with their own misinformation. Where is the proof that people are dying because they declined vaccination after reading Aunt Millie’s rant against vaccines, posted along with her favorite meatloaf recipes on her homepage? No matter, according to proposed government policy, Aunt Millie must be censored from social media!

Responses

  1. Horrifying and disastrous.

    One of the myriad metastasizing manifestations of the newly installed Marxist totalitarian tyrannical government.

  2. Dr. Brown, this is a very well written article and great links to outside references. I appreciate your work in no small way.

    My understanding is that when Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna submitted their relative risk data they submitted it as the relative risk that disease would occur after infection for those who had been properly vaccinated. That is to say that Pfizer / BioNTech submitted that there was a 5% relative risk of infected subjects exhibiting severe disease of their experimental group had been vaccinated, and Moderna data showed a 5.9% relative risk of infected subjects exhibiting severe disease of their experimental group had been vaccinated. That is the information that the FDA required to determine whether there is value to these vaccines in dealing with disease.

    These companies did not offer their relative risk data as inverse figures – 95% efficacy and 94.1% efficacy respectively. The idea of “efficacy” was generated by the media that wanted to present the best possible light on these vaccines, really great looking numbers…, without offering baseline information to compare against. Typical media misdirection – report figures that appear to make your case and simply ignore comparative figures that would only confuse people.

    They question I had all along but couldn’t get a straight answer: 95% efficacy compared to what?

    Before vaccinations were available, were:

    100% of the people who got infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus getting severely ill? No.
    50% got severely ill? No.
    10% got severely ill? No.

    Because we never have had regular reliable periodic universal testing for SARS-CoV-2 infections we have to rely on best guess estimations as to how many people who get infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus became severely ill.

    The best guess that I could find came from the CDC ratio of 1: 11 of reported : unreported infections. The reported infections included severely ill folks, of course, but also included many others who were tested for other reasons – travel, pending medical procedures, etc. and were found positive. Adding them into the first factor of known infections skews that ratio considerably lower to be able to estimate the percentage of people who got severely ill after infection.

    Before vaccines, there were reasonably reliable estimates that across the whole spectrum of our population that 1% – 5% of the people who were infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus became severely ill. Hmmm. 1% – 5% of unvaccinated people becoming severely ill as compared to Pfizer’s reported figure of 5% and Moderna’s reported figure of 5.9%. Hmmm. That would translate to unvaccinated natural immune responses across a whole population is between 95% – 99% efficacy.

    But we wouldn’t want people to get conflicting messaging, would we?

    Instead the media reports one figure only, one that on the surface sounds great but that they made up from the submitted data, one without a baseline to compare against, and of course our media simply walks past the absolute risk factors which were submitted as well, the truly salient factors that would have been useful to determine our public policies in dealing with this pandemic.

    It is frightening to be in the middle of this massive storm of propaganda, aware that everybody is being lied to, and then be unable to present information that will not be received on the other end because fear and paranoia are driving the discussion, not sound scientifically validated data.

    Again, I very much appreciate the work that you and many others are doing to shed light in this dark void.

    1. Thanks for your comments. I realize that the public is not familiar with the concepts of relative and absolute risk reduction measures used by researchers to report clinical trial findings. To help people understand these concepts better, a detailed explanation is provided in my Trial Site News interview on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jkwn5I8tLmE
      Almost a quarter of a million people have viewed this interview. I hope you find it enlightening.

      1. Dr. Brown,

        Thank you for this link. I have it posted on my home page, will come back to it later. I’m supposed be productive today… [What am I going to do about myself?]

        I’ve been telling folks about absolute risk / relative risk for some time. Also I am asking them to consider baseline vs experimental data. I would say that my meaningful contact rate on these concepts is hovering around 5% [90% CI 3% – 7%, p= 0.05…. I’m laughing at myself here].

        But seriously it is very difficult to reach people who are fully embedded in the media narrative. At a minimum most are dismissive of information I bring to them and many are outright hostile. The few that I do reach are confused and puzzled, and then sorely disappointed with themselves for not looking into this issue more carefully themselves. In this case I am talking about people who spent their careers in medical research but somehow failed to apply their critical thinking skills when it comes to Covid.

        The power of propaganda is not to be underestimated in the short run. The power of truth, however, should never be underestimated in the long run.

        1. Thank you for your posts. I’m very grateful to those of you who have shared truthful information in these days of unprecedented censorship. I pray you do not get discouraged and give up the fight. Thank you.

  3. Dr Charles Hoffe Talks About Microscopic Blood Clots in the Brain, Heart and Lungs
    July 15, 2021
    Editor’s note: We did an article on Dr Charles Hoffe on July 12, 2021. He was the doctor from Lytton, British Columbia. Posted below is Dr Charles Hoffe MD’s latest update (July 6, 2021) reporting his disturbing findings in his patients to Laura Lynn. It is only 8 MINUTES long. He says the mRNA vaccines are plugging up thousands of tiny capillaries in the blood of those who took the ‘vaccine.’ Most will die in a few short years from heart failure. (Thanks to Gil for sending the translation)
    Are the spike proteins injected, which are designed to be mass-produced in the bodies of the vaccinated, cause of the clotting? Is this having adverse effects on no fewer than 60 percent of people injected?
    Dr Hoffe, who practices medicine at Lytton BC Canada explains:
    Transcription from the video by John O’Sullivan, PSI
    “We now know that only 25 percent of the ‘vaccine’ injected into a person’s arm actually stays in your arm. The other 75 percent is collected by your lymphatic system and literally fed into your circulation so these little packages of messenger RNA, and by the way in a single dose of Moderna ‘vaccine’ there are literally 40 trillion mRNA molecules.  These packages are designed to be absorbed into your cells. But the only place they can be absorbed is around your blood vessels and the place where they are absorbed is the capillary networks – the tiniest blood vessels where the blood flow slows right down and where the genes are released. Your body then gets to work reading and then manufacturing trillions and trillions of these spike proteins. Each gene can produce many, many spike proteins. The body then recognizes these are foreign bodies so it makes antibodies against it so your are then protected against COVID. That’s the idea.
    “But here’s where the problem comes. In a coronavirus that spike protein becomes part of the viral capsule. In other words it becomes part of the cell wall around the virus. But it is not in a virus. It is in your cells. So it becomes part of the cell wall of your vascular endothelium. This means that these cells which line your blood vessels, which are supposed to be smooth so that your blood flows smoothly now have these little spikey bits sticking out.”
    Dr Hoffe continues:
    “So it is absolutely inevitable that blood clots will form because your blood platelets circulate round your blood vessels, and the purpose of blood platelets is to identify damaged vessels and stop bleeding.  So, when the platelet comes through the capillary it suddenly hits all these COVID spikes and it becomes absolutely inevitable that blood clots will form to block that vessel.
    “Therefore, these spike proteins can predictably cause blood clots. They are in your blood vessels (if mRNA ‘vaccinated’) so it is guaranteed. Dr Bahrdi then said to me that the way to prove this is to do a blood test called a D-dimer blood test.
    “The blood clots we hear about which the media claim are very rare are the big blood clots which are the ones that cause strokes and show up on CT scans, MRI, etc. The clots I’m talking about are microscopic and too small to find on any scan. They can thus only be detected using the D-dimer test.”
    Dr Hoffe explains he has been performing D-dimer tests on his mRNA ‘vaccinated’ patients and he has worryingly identified that 62 percent of them had these microscopic blood clots.
    “These people have no idea they are even having these microscopic blood clots. The most alarming part of this is that there are some parts of the body like the brain, spinal cord, heart and lungs which cannot re-generate. When those tissues are damaged by blood clots they are permanently damaged.”
    The result, says Dr Hoffe, is that these patients have what is termed Reduced Effort Tolerance (RET) which means they get out of breath much easily than they used to. It is because the blood vessels in their lungs are now blocked up. In turn, this causes the heart to need to work harder to try to keep up against a much greater resistance trying to get the blood through your lungs.
    This is called pulmonary artery hypertension – high blood pressure in the lungs because the blood simply cannot get through effectively.  People with this condition usually die of heart failure within a few short years.
    In conclusion, Dr Hoffe lamented:
    “These shots are causing huge damage and the worst is yet to come.”
    Me: (possibly 2-3 years lifespan, if you have microscopic blood clots – Get D-Dimer test done soonest 60% now – 40% later on to spread it out maybe = 100% efficiency) Read an article where a boss referred to the mRNA vaccinated who were kept separate from the unvaccinated and he commented that none of them would be here in 3 years time – then he hastily said they would have left…..
    Verification: Google Dr Charles Hoffe or Dr Bahrdi and follow the links you find there.
    Dr Charles Hoffe was fired from the hospital where he worked for providing the above to the News and that validates the above, to my way of thinking.
    But let’s put that on another level: If you have had mRNA vaccines, then it is important that you get D.dimer tested on your blood to see if it contains microscopic blood clots and if so, then the reasons for Biden’s “everyone must get mRNA vaccinated” takes on a different picture doesn’t it?
    I have another similar public warning from another doctor who was concerned about mRNA vaccines in kids and he got fired too, from his top job
    Which might tie in with this: Legal Group Launches Effort to Learn About Biden Administration’s Coordination With Big Tech
    By Zachary Stieber…look for it on Google
    July 17, 2021 Updated: July 17, 2021
    A legal group is seeking information on the extent of the Biden administration’s coordination with Big Tech after White House officials this week said they were in regular communication with the companies.
    Me: And who tells what to whom, to get it done?

    1. Richard,

      Thank you for this very detailed report. I had not come across this information before in such detail, will share with the friends that I know can still receive such information. Blood clots…, that makes a ghoulish sort of sense.

      What I have glommed onto is the idea of these mRNA vaccines becoming a source for long range auto immune diseases. What’s to turn off the our cells spike protein production when it is no longer needed to produce antibodies to help identify cells infected by SARS-CoV-2 and so that they can be destroyed. How is an antibody supposed to differentiate between cells that have been infected by SARS-C-V-2 virus and cells infected by mRNA vaccines?

      If you have insights on that I would appreciate hearing from you.

      I will look into the D.dimer test, not familiar with that.

      If / when micro blood clots are happening do you see a way to deal with this problem? Is there any treatment available?

      Frightening! I’m glad I listened to my inner voice of reason that told me that something was wrong with the story that we were all being told.

    1. Thanks for posting the Bill.
      I have two major peer-reviewed articles on COVID-19 published in medical journals, with two more on the way, and I can’t even get an interview in my local newspaper because of censorship of “misinformation.” One of the new articles coming out soon explains exactly how we were misled into adopting a totalitarian lockdown imported from communist China, complete with all the violation of rights and freedoms that they don’t have in China.

      1. I have a report of an “accident” at a military bio-weapons lab in America which caused an infection very similar to the Wuhan Bat theory, which involved some of the residents of that town and the bio-lab was hastily shut down and quickly removed, prior to the Wuhan Bio-Lab leak, so we are told
        I should be able to dig it up if anyone is interested?

  4. The misinformation of the toxic vaccine will lead to thousands of healthy people to get very sick … the tsunami is coming and governments are lying to their population…

    1. No kidding.

      In my neighborhood the first cases of shingles following within 2 – 3 weeks of these “vaccines” are starting to show up. Myocarditis and pericarditis are showing up in young, and otherwise perfectly healthy young people. And there’s more to come.

      The chances for long range massive increases in various auto immune disease is very real.

      Let me pose something.

      If the cells that have received these mRNA packets are producing spike proteins that our immune systems identify as foreign proteins and therefore stimulate a response by creating antibodies in order for other factors in our immune system to easily identify and destroy the source of these foreign proteins, how do we turn off that response when it is no longer needed? If cells are infected by the SARS-Cov-2 virus and are creating spike proteins the antibodies there were previous created via the mRNA vaccines will likely enhance the speed of our immune response to those destroy those SARS-CoV-2 infected cells. Great! But how do our antibodies know to differentiate between those cells that have been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus and those cells that have received (been infected with) the mRNA packets? Ahhh. Hmmm.

      I can only imagine what else will be showing up soon. Guillain-Barre syndrome is starting to surface and Bells’ Palsy as well. Other neurological disorders are most likely going to be surfacing in greater numbers. And our already extant problems with rheumatoid arthritis are most likely to get much worse.

      Of course the media will try keep a lid on this story. They will dismiss any connection between these mRNA vaccines and subsequent long range deterioration of health. They will keep promoting the company line that they started with since they are already too far committed to their narrative to be able to back out and admit that they made a mistake. Loss of faith in our media? Unthinkable!
