Is This The Beginning Of Telling The Truth?

On Wednesday, Zero Hedge posted the following headline:

AstraZeneca Pulls COVID Vaccine After Admitting Rare Side Effect

Note that the headline says ‘admitting’–not discovering. When did they discover the ‘rare’ side effect.

The article reports:

In yet another damning development for the ‘safe and effective’ crowd, AstraZeneca has announced the worldwide withdrawal of its Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, branded as Vaxzevria, due to a rare but serious side effect. This decision marks the end of the vaccine once hailed as a “triumph for British science” by Boris Johnson and credited with saving over six million lives, The Telegraph reports.

How does anyone know how many lives the vaccine saved? How many people would have not gotten Covid or survived Covid without the shot? There really is no way to track that because there is no way to set up a control group.

The article notes:

Legal experts and victims, however, see the withdrawal as a vindication of their long-held concerns over the vaccine’s safety. “To those who we represent, all of whom have suffered bereavement or serious injury as a result of the AstraZeneca vaccine, this decision to withdraw marketing authorisation, ending the usage of the AstraZeneca vaccine in the EU, will be welcomed,” said Sarah Moore, a partner at Leigh Day, the law firm representing many of the claimants.

“It will be seen as a decision linked with AstraZeneca’s recent admission that the vaccine can cause TTS, and the fact that regulators across the world suspended or stopped usage of the vaccine following concerns regarding TTS.”

Victims and their families have reported a range of severe reactions, from fatal thrombosis to lasting disabilities, sparking a debate over the adequacy of vaccine safety monitoring and compensation for vaccine injuries.

Kate Scott, whose husband suffered a permanent brain injury after receiving the vaccine, expressed mixed feelings: “AstraZeneca’s Covid vaccine no longer being used in the UK or Europe, and soon the rest of the world, means no one else will suffer from this awful adverse reaction,” she said. “They say it is for commercial reasons, but maybe it’s because it can no longer be seen as being within the acceptable safety parameters, with 445 confirmed cases of VITT, 81 of these fatal in the UK alone.”

I am temporarily swearing off all vaccines until I am convinced that medicine is about caring for people and not providing profits for the drug companies.

The Impact Of Political Correctness On Art

Breitbart posted an article today listing 17 classic Hollywood movies that could not be made today because of political correctness. The latest wave of political correctness says that only a person with the disability can portray a disabled person in a film or that the person playing a character in a film has to have the actual characteristics of that person. I thought it was called acting for a reason. That creates some interesting challenges that probably could not be overcome in making these classic movies.

The list:

1. Dustin Hoffman – Rain Man

2. Daniel Day-Lewis  – My Left Foot

3. Tom HanksForrest Gump

4. Matthew McConaugheyDallas Buyers Club

5. Sean Penn – I Am Sam

6. Eddie Redmayne – The Theory of Everything/The Danish Girl

7. Leonardo DiCaprioWhat’s Eating Gilbert Grape?

8. Colin Firth – The King’s Speech

9. Jamie Foxx – Ray

10. Al Pacino – Scent of a Woman

11. Patty Duke – The Miracle Worker

12. Holly Hunter – The Piano

13. Julianne MooreStill Alice

14. Hillary Swank –  Million Dollar Baby

15. Eric Stoltz – Mask

16. John Hurt – The Elephant Man

17. Nicolas Cage  – Leaving Las Vegas
