New Study: Don't Worry About Reports of Vaccine Injuries. Vaccine Injuries Are Mostly Caused by... "Misinformation" About the Existence of Vaccine Injuries.

Say, did you know that "gaslighting" is Merriam-Webster's 2022 word of the year, based on the number of look-ups?

The word became a verb based on a play, in which a murderer attempted to make a witness doubt her sanity by changing the lighting (the gas lighting) and then insisting it hadn't been changed. (At least, that's my guess; I've never seen the movie. A friend told me this explanation, and I don't think he saw it, either.) (Correction: A commenter explains the actual meaning at end of post.)


"Gaslighting" -- mind manipulating, grossly misleading, downright deceitful -- has been named the 2022 Word of the Year by online dictionary Merriam-Webster.

"Oligarch", "Queen Consort", "Omicron" and "codify" also made the top of the list
Searches for the word on merriam-webster.com increased 1,740 per cent in 2022 over the year before. But something else happened.

There wasn't a single event that drove significant spikes in the curiosity, as was usually the case for the chosen word of the year.

The gaslighting was pervasive.

"It's a word that has risen so quickly in the English language, and especially in the last four years, that it actually came as a surprise to me and to many of us," said Peter Sokolowski, Merriam-Webster's editor-at-large, in an exclusive interview with the Associated Press prior to the word's unveiling.

"It was a word looked up frequently every single day of the year," he said.

Speaking of: A new study says that the adverse effects attributed to the vaccine aren't real, they're just caused by people believing their will be adverse effects, due to people, such as yourselves, spreading "misinformation."

A recent study suggests that it is not mRNA COVID-19 vaccines that are "most likely" responsible for adverse effects such as blood clots, strokes, and heart attacks, but concerns widely expressed about the vaccines.

In September, the Indian journal "Biomedicine" published a so-called study by self-professed "mRNA Alchemist" and biotech engineer Raymond D. Palmer, entitled "Covid 19 vaccines and the misinterpretation of perceived side effects clarity on the safety of vaccines." The study is presently being hosted on the National Library of Medicine site, which is operated by the U.S. federal government.

The gaslight is set at its normal level. I have no idea what you're talking about.


While various experts, such as internationally esteemed American cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, have issued warnings about potential downsides of the vaccines, Palmer, an astronomy hobbyist and former realtor, claimed that those wary about the COVID-19 vaccines do not just suffer "a profound lack of scientific and medical training" but are at the root of a great deal of vaccine recipients' suffering.

At last, we're finally getting some Tom Nichols-level experts to weigh in.

The gas-lamp is working as it always does. Why are you obsessing about it?


Palmer's paper claimed that various adverse effects that take place "in and around the time of receiving the [COVID-19] vaccine" may result from the "mental stress" generated by concerns about those very vaccines.

While noting that "the likelihood of mental stress causing strokes, heart attacks or blood clots may at first appear unlikely," Palmer nevertheless claimed that "anti-vaccination sentiment could be attributed to the alleged side effects that are perpetuated across social media from anti-vaccination groups."

According to Palmer, blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, dizziness, fainting, blurred vision, and loss of smell and taste are products of mental stress. The mRNA alchemist claimed also that the "science for the vaccines causing blood clots has not been found."

Contrary to Palmer's published suggestion, the University of Utah reported that the Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines have, for instance, been associated with thrombotic thrombocytopenia, where antibodies lead to "uncontrolled activation of platelets ... and blood clots to form."

In April 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced a pause in its recommendations for the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for this very reason.

Discounting previous blood clot links, Palmer said that mental stress "clearly causes vasoconstriction and arterial constriction of the blood vessels."

Persons who are "panicked, concerned, stressed or scared of the vaccination" may therefore see their arteries "constrict and become smaller in and around the time of receiving the vaccine."

I think Jimmy Dore or Kurp Metzger noted that if the "stress and fear causes thrombosis and clots" theory had any validity to it, we should see semi-annual spikes of such conditions in students, at mid-terms and finals week.

But we don't.

Apparently this Tom Nichols level Cognitive Athlete says he's a Ph.D. candidate, but can't say where he's pursuing it.

...

When asked by Rebekah Barnett of the "Dystopian Down Under" Substack about his Ph.D. candidacy, Palmer allegedly said he couldn't provide an answer on account of having signed nondisclosure agreements.

I told you, the gaslight is working normally. Is there something wrong with you?

The CDC just released a report -- forced to do so by a court; they were trying to hide it.

The report says the gaslights have been in good working order for the past two years.

Anyone shocked by the report that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) withheld data about a potentially fatal complication from COVID-19 vaccinations until it was forced under court order to release the data hasn't been paying attention to the CDC's multitude of misstatements and lies over the last two years.

As reported by Just the News, data released under court order shows 1 in 3 among the earliest populations to get vaccinated reported needing medical care, missed school or work, or was unable to "perform normal daily activities," while the CDC continued to fight to keep the data from the public.

Here's more, via Just the News:


Among the 10 million-plus users of the agency's v-safe active monitoring smartphone app through July -- 8.5 million of whom signed up between December 2020 and April 2021, before all adults were eligible for COVID vaccines -- nearly 8% said they required medical care after receiving the vaccines.

For patients ages 3 and older needing such care, nearly 3 in 4 couldn't rely on telehealth visits. They required urgent care (48%), emergency room (15%), or hospitalization (10%).

For infants who were authorized to receive the jabs this summer and are enrolled in v-safe through parents or guardians, hospitalizations were much lower (2%) but urgent care [was] much higher (66%).


Meanwhile, Dr. Science, who knows all there is to know about covid, was deposed regarding his illegal government-corporate censorship scheme and, wouldn't you know it, he was hit with Sudden Onset Specific Subject Alzheimer's.

AG Jeff Landry
@AGJeffLandry

Wow! It was amazing to spend 7 hours with Dr. Fauci. The man who single-handedly wrecked the U.S. economy based upon "the science." Only to discover that he can't recall practically anything dealing with his Covid response!

Fauci couldn't remember something else -- to wit, any actual studies establishing that masking was effective in stopping covid (or any other RSV), before announcing that The Science (TM) had changed and now demanded that we all mask up.

Dr. Anthony Fauci couldn't cite any studies that changed his mind about masking against COVID-19 during a recent deposition, according to lawyers who were in the room.

Fauci, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director, was among the U.S. officials repeatedly urging people to not wear a mask early in the COVID-19 pandemic unless they were showing symptoms. Among his many public and private statements, he wrote in a Feb. 5, 2020, email that "the typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through the material."

About two months later, Fauci and other top officials reversed course and issued widespread masking recommendations, regardless of symptoms.

Asked about the change while under oath on Nov. 23, Fauci couldn't provide any studies, according to lawyers representing plaintiffs in a case against the federal government.

"He was asked what studies or study changed his mind in that interim, which is what he claimed--he claimed that it was studied. He couldn't name any," Jenin Younes, one of the lawyers, told The Epoch Times.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, a Republican who was also present during the deposition in Maryland, said on social media that Fauci "couldn't cite a single study" to back up his claim that masks were effective against COVID-19.

Over the weekend, the non-scientist politician Fauci played to his base of Hypochondriacal Karens and Goldbricking Teachers Union Officials and left it an open question about whether the government should order schools to be closed again this coming winter:

Jay Bhattacharya
@DrJBhattacharya


Astonishingly, Fauci is still pushing school closures conditional on community disease spread. There is no public health or scientific justification for it. The kids have suffered enough.

ABC "News'" Cryptkeeper Karen Martha Raddatz moaned that people, for some reason, just weren't listening to the man she thinks about when she flicks her desiccated sex-bean until all the mummy-dust is shaken off.

"You heard Dr. Fauci, the administration is launching a new campaign urging people to get those flu shots, get those COVID boosters, but I think only about 11 percent have gotten the booster so far, maybe 42 million the flu shot; we've talked about this so many times. People aren't listening -- what do you do?," a very concerned Raddatz wondered.

She didn't wonder why people stopped trusting Fauci, or what he could do to repair trust, such as admitting his errors and playing to his base of political support, neurotic women seeking meaning through imposing order on the world by Mandated Face Burkas. No, she just wanted fresh ideas about how to compel people to comply.

The gaslight is fine.

Do you need to take a pill? What are we going to do about your gaslight fixation?

The Real Meaning of Gaslight in Gaslight. So this is why no one can really explain it.

Hate to be that guy, but in Gaslight the villain was going through all sorts of manipulations to make the heroine think she was losing her mind. What brought her out of it was noticing that the light level would change when her husband wasn't around (because he had turned on the gaslights in the attic where he was searching for something valuable). It was something that others could see and would affirm (because they weren't in on the plot and had no reason not to), so ironically the word that has come to mean jerking a person around to drive them insane was actually the sanity sparing plot devise. You're welcome / I'm sorry as you prefer.

Posted by: thecobrasnose

No, you go on being that guy, the cobra nose.

So the movie is called Gaslight, and gaslights do figure into the plot, but gaslights are not used to make her doubt her sanity; other manipulations are used for that purpose. The gaslight itself actually helps bring her back to sanity.

People just call it "gaslighting" for the movie, not for the actual gas lights.

15 About 6 or 7 months into Covid I read that some 25 papers or studies on Covid had been pulled back by their authors for errors or improper science. That still left plenty of bad studies out there that the authors didn't decide to pull which might be total nonsense.

I was very down on the anonymous "study" that validates whatever crank idea is wanted before then, now I pretty much reject any use of a study without a citation and discussion of methods and people included.

Which has no business happening. As much as FOIA is useful, it's an awful approach to the problem. *All* information created by any government or government agency should be public by default, as of the time of creation. If they want something to be non-public, they should have to classify it and announce that decision, along with the rationale. *Then* a FOIA-type system can challenge it. If the agency loses the challenge, it's executives are all fired.

Transparency by default. In a republic, that's the only way the government can possibly operate in anything approaching an above-board way.

Put the public back in republic.

Take that at face value and assume it's true (it even might be). If you're anything like me, the immediate question if you do will be, "but how effective are they at countering the transmission of COVID?

65 On the topic of masking, the local newscast ran a story this morning about it. They reported on some study or other that declared that normal surgical masks are as effective as N95s in countering the transmission of COVID.

Take that at face value and assume it's true (it even might be). If you're anything like me, the immediate question if you do will be, "but how effective are they at countering the transmission of COVID? Just because A is as effective as B, it doesn't mean that A or B are effective in the first place. After all, cheez-whiz and hand-held calculators are probably equal effective tools for firefighting."

82 VAERS was introduced because when the last bad round of vaccines were introduced the medical community was taken by surprise.

They were all tested (and really tested unlike the clot shot) but still were killing people...but without VAERS they were all "isolated cases".

As of today VAERS is reporting many orders of magnitudes more injuries due to the clot shot then any vaccine before. Which is EXACTLY what you would expect to see if a bad vaccine was released to the public. And the whole purpose this tool exists.

Because VAERS is flawed. That's the argument. VAERS uses self-reporting and thus the data is imperfect and could be poisoned if someone was really committed to poisoning the data set.

But oddly, those same people have no problem with wonky data when it comes to that "Dead of COVID" ticker they run on CNN. VAERS has some flaws, but it's the best we've got at the moment.

145 I did the first two Pfizer shots. I regret it, but there it is. A few months later I got Covid. It sucked a bit, but not the worst thing ever. The lasting effect over a year later is my sense of smell is still messed up.

My son recently tested positive for Covid. It was a mild illness and I didn't catch it.

Posted by: bonhomme at November 30, 2022 03:22 PM (eyxn4)

I didn't get the jab. I think I had early 2020 covid, but I never tested (my supposition based on symptoms). Then, later in 2021 (again, my supposition based on symptoms), and again early 2022 (no test again, but could have been flu, but lingering symptoms suggested covid). The last time about a month ago, I had lingering taste and smell issues and fatigue reduced respiratory capacity, which again suggested covid.

Any one or more of these could have been not covid, but why bother testing? It is a cold, and people will get the variants, as they become part of the background set of illnesses circulating, which is why we heretofore did not vaccinate for colds.

151 FWIW, this is a sobering analysis of the sudden death syndrome that appears to be popping up and a possible mechanism for the vaxx to cause long lasting damage to the immune system.
https://tinyurl.com/5n8jjh83

Dives into the weeds but based on my own treatment including just that IGG blood subtype test for long covid twice plus the J&J vaxx that I took, it is pretty plausible. Has direct links to the scientific papers with the evidence which include a study of IGG blood subtypes by Italian researchers.

Long story made short. Essentially the vaxx causes your body to rely on one IGG subtype but over time it changes to where your body 'learns' to tolerate the spike protein and not warn your immune system to fight it. Course, that means that spike can cause damage on a continuing basis to your organs and you can get silent repeated covid infections because your immune inflammatory response like fever, snotting up or feeling ill is short circuited. So you get a lethal concentration of the spike from these silent infections and keel over suddenly.

158 Excess deaths are still as high as +25% in some places and tracks fairly well with the jab rate. And there is evidence that within some jabbed cohorts the rate is as high as +50-150%

Our total here for people we know who died of covid remains at zero, although we know *of* large numbers who did, mostly in institutional settings early on when health authorities were still pushing retarded protocols (read: nursing homes). Our count of people we know who died post-shot of sudden aggressive cancer, stroke, or heart issues is now 15.

165 Although I guess there are few HIV positive readers at AoS, the AZT scandal of the 1990's looms large. AZT was promoted by (drumroll) Dr. Fauci as an effective anti-viral medication to HIV positive patients.
AZT itself was toxic, and likely killed more patients than HIV-AIDS did. So....we have seen Dr. Fauci and his cohorts in pharmacological science pull this act before.

For the alternative news freaks among us, Dr. Joseph Mercola predicted (in 2020), knowing something about the nature of the "Vaccines" that they would end up killing more people than COVID-19. I have a stupid tendency to trust Dr. Mercola as he resembles my late father.
And these psychic imaginations might just get out of hand. My nephew of 38 died of "coronary issues" five days after getting his first Pfizer shot, in July of 2021.
I will never forget or forgive these people for the monstrous stuff they have done to people.

198 So, a Dutch blogger whose article I read yesterday argues that all the "died suddenly" cases we're now seeing are not caused by the vaccine itself, but by (if I have this right) getting infected with Covid after getting the vaccine.

Basically, the antibodies the vaccine forces the body to produce are the wrong type. While that can (and sometimes does) lead to fatal clotting issues, this guy says what's happening more often is that because it's the wrong antibody, the Covid virus goes on its merry way, and what would otherwise be fought off with only mild cold-like symptoms eventually damages the cardiovascular system, and then you're dead.

I don't vouch for this version, but it's interesting.

Yup, and probably the real reason they're at mad at Musk. Just like one of the reasons the hate Trump, Musk is doing something about child exploitation. Easy things to do that Old Twitter couldn't be bothered to do. And a ton of Antifa types were swept up in the effort.

Which should surprise no one. Just remember the Rittenhouse affair. He shot three Antifa goons more or less at random (he happened to get into an altercation with them, he didn't seek out those three).

Yes, if positive I would go "off label" for e.g. Ivermectin and whatever the commenters here like. I've only been sick enough to suspect Covid once and the test was negative though.

We tested him because his teacher and a couple of students tested positive.

Yes. We held him out according to the school's requirements even when I would have sent him to school due to being nearly symptom free.

I (now) think it was originally designed to be an industrial rubber stamp - tool of validation - to fortify release of pharmaceutical product. When it actually ended up disqualifying a "drug", and a historically profitable and political one at that, it immediately became a threat to the industrial pipeline. IOW, it was never really a tool to do what they said it was supposed to do; it was more a tool to expedite critical acceptance of an end product.

257 The Guardian, of all places, had an interesting article explaining why the Deep State hates MBS in Saudi Arabia so much.

MBS supplanted Mohammed bin Nayef (who is still under house arrest). Bin Nayef had been next in line to the throne, and ran the intelligence services.

Bin Nayef was also the bought dog of the CIA. He was close to John Brennan, and got an award from Mike Pompeo when Pompeo was head of the CIA.

The Deep State thought that they would have a toady in control of Saudi Arabia for years to come - unofficially for now, and officially after the King died.

No wonder they were so upset when MBS took over. Heck, MBS refused to delay the oil production reductions until after the midterms when Biden requested it, likes Trump, and publicly makes fun of the Americans.

Can't have that.

MBS and Trump and Israel did the Abraham accords to allow them to sever ties with the US for most purposes because they knew the USG was not working in their interests. Since then, MBS has been working for Saudi Arabia for good or for ill - in my opinion probably mostly making good steps.

Trump is very obviously not stupid, but every leftist thinks every Republican is dumb. Their argument goes like this: "I am very smart and everyone who agrees with me is smart, therefore if someone disagrees, they are stupid" At this point they usually wave around a diploma which supposedly demonstrates their intellectual capacity.

This is, of course, an a priori argument, it assumes its conclusion. Its also the kind of thinking that hilariously was demonstrated in this video:

Just a random anecdotal sample of patients over the four-day:

61M Sudden cardiac arrest, massive coagulopathy - Vaxx x 3
15F Chest pain x 2 months - Vaxx x 2
42F New onset Bell's Palsy - Vaxx x2
24M chest pain, elevated troponin - Vaxx x 2
Total ER-wide COVID patients - 1: 94M - Vaxx x 3, slight SOB, totally stable
Total ER-wide unvaxxed COVID patients - 0

Until the China virus, lockdowns have never been a part of a response to a pandemic in western countries. It was a Chinese response.

Yet overnight the worldwide medical community at the urging of the WHO adopted lockdowns. It was political not medical.

348 Public Health Delenda Est.

The public health system was built on trust. That trust has not only eroded, it's gone. The same for a lot of doctor patient relationships.

You can play the political hide the salami game only for so long. But when that salami lodges in someone's ass and they die, the games over.

The COVID vaccine kills indiscriminately. So did public policy as pursued by public health officials. So did the advice given by a lot of doctors who are still happy to peddle the lie.

Look at what's graduating from medical school. Now ask yourself if you would trust any of that advice as given. Nope, most thinking people won't.

I suppose you can sacrifice yourself and your family for your vanity and politics. But that's not a choice a lot of people will make. And now they will fight you to keep it from hurting their families.

369 Giving him a new fam later is *not* recompense.

No, it does not make up for losing all his sons. The money being lost sucked, but he could make it up. Being sick was awful but he still had his life and belief that he could get better. But losing his children, that's just an awful, unrecoverable blow. And his wife did not exactly come across as a real prize, either.

But God has a bigger plan for all of it, including teaching us, and Job is now in his mansion in glory, far better off, with his sons.

I'm not. The disease was nowhere as deadly as stated. The risk factors were obvious early on and could have been cheaply mitigated. mRNA technology has never been approved for human use because it has always failed in safety trials
==
There is nothing in medicine that is safe for everyone. Not even water. So, them saying that this is all good for the entire population (except if you are allergic to PEG) is pretty much a white hot lie. In most cases it was experimental, and a copy of a pathologic spike that you body then starts producing. Um, wait, that's not how you vaccine. You put a tiny amount of dead or dying virus in me, and my body starts producing antibodies to the pathogen, not the pathogen itself . . . etc.

438 But at least Christ was a volunteer who went in knowing the score. Job is by far my least favorite Bible story for many reasons, one of which is the killing of the family. Giving him a new fam later is *not* recompense.

Posted by: Oldcat at November 30, 2022 03:53 PM (eoQWY)

Actually Job is one of the best pictures of God pre-NT.

When you contrast Job's virtue to the other three patriarch's "virtue" and willingness to blame and condemn (and perhaps gossip), there is no match.

I've always seen the negative side of Job, until I really read it. I agree a new family is not recompense, though.

But, on the other side the Lord is sovereign. Anybody who gets struck down by anything on this Earth could be saved if the Lord intervened. Thus he's always letting people die.

We never have a challenge of faith when somebody across the world dies--it's when we know and love that person. And then, all we are doing is expressing the dearness of that person that the Lord has cultivated in us for years. And suddenly, although so many people die everyday as a fact, which could be taken for trivia. The person we know is a grave injustice.

With the point being that the country was massively damaged by failed science and medical establishments, the failures need to be documented and memorialized, the people and processes changed, and the massive vandalism not repeated?

Of course I'm joking.

Job's faith didn't waver even when his wife told him to curse God and die. That may be one of the points of the story (which may be the oldest book of the Bible) but it a story that has been difficult for some people of faith for quite some time. Again it's the question of "Why do bad things happen to good people?" I don't find Rabbi Kushner's answer, "Because there are some things God can't control" very helpful

497 ob's faith didn't waver even when his wife told him to curse God and die.

God sees all ends, we don't. The best thing that can happen to Job, anyone, is not to prosper on earth, but to get to heaven. Same for his kids. God knows, not us, what would have happened to those Kids had Satan not gotten his way against Job. Some fates are worse than death. Job lost those things of earth he was attached to and gained in heaven. Everyone focuses on his earthly losses and then his earthly recompense - gets farm and some family back. Those things are intended to be seen as ephemeral, easy come easy go. We think our earthly relationships are the most important things. They are not. People left homes and families to be disciples. Were told not to bury dead parents. Do you see it?

back in the 80's, at the beginning of HIV, gay men wanted to give blood to cause HIV to spread wide and far in the hopes it would then spur more research into HIV and AIDS.

I'm pretty sure that their motivation had nothing to do with increased research. It was more like a drowning man pulling a swimmer down so that he doesn't die alone.

Posted by: Bitter Clinger at November 30, 2022 04:10 PM (bAlDi)

It wasn't free will that caused Job to have these things happen to him; that he refused to curse God and die was an example of his free will (even as his pride drove him to say he'd argue his case with God if he could).

503 I would agree with this take on Job. Bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. Job, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes are some of the more challenging chapters along with perhaps Jonah in the Old Testament.

Not because God *can't* control disease and decay and injury, but because if he did we would no longer be alive. He allows us to sin because the alternative is that we're automatons at best, statues at worst. There's no growth without error, no life without decay.

God wants us to live. Even if for a short time and even if often in pain because the alternative to pain is... nothing.

Sure. I'm talking to everybody who has a Job question/issue tho. Its a hard one. We have an impossibly difficult time understanding how the loss of all those things and people can be compensated. Because we overvalue them as it relates to what our relationship is supposed to be with God. You are supposed to love him more than you love your children.
Job is meant to recalibrate your sense of relationship to the world/ephemeral vs heaven/GOD/forever.

I sometimes do take it as parable.

But, before I draw too much fire, the Lord is the wisest. If it's not just a play (complete with Deus ex machina, mind you), then the Lord is just and wise.

However, it has one of the clearest expressions of faith of any Old Testament scripture: I know My Redeemer lives, and he expresses his confidence that God would gather him from the grave...even though it is likely that he *knew* nothing of the such from his religious tradition.

Yes. And also, otherwise we would have nothing to give to him. This time of year I always think of the phrase what do you give to somebody who already has everything. Everything is God's. Except he gave us something that is ours - our free will. Our choice to act in time and space, to worship, to offer sacrifice etc. You are taking something that is yours, your will and choosing to do good. You are actively cultivating a relationship. You are actualizing with what you choose to do, your will, giving something that is yours the one thing he really wants. Your freely given love. He gave us the model, explicitly to follow with Jesus. What is best, the things of life, or eternity. Safety, Security, Wealth, Position or that no man has greater love than that he lay down his life for others

There is also my theory.

We are the answer to the question can God make a *rock* so big he fails to lift it? (Thus proving to be *powerful* by failing.)

We are the species so reprehensible that God can only save a sample. That would kind of explain Lucifer's beef with God that he would waste his grace looking for approval (one of the connotations of what is usually translated "glory") from our vile race.

We are a great sign of the Lord's grace and long-suffering.

Lately, I've engaged my family in impromptu sermons about something I call "the dark side of grace". It's probably more provocative than it needs to be, but it make people pick up their ears.

I believe that if the Israelites had believed in God's strength and provision they could have taken on the "giants" during Moses' lifetime. But because they were cowed by the "giants", the Lord determined that they would wander until the Canaanites judgment "became full". And what were they doing to fill up that judgment?
