On his May 5, 2021 show, Tucker Carlson said, “Between late December of 2020 and last month, a total of 3,362 people apparently died after getting the COVID vaccine in the United States … The actual number is almost certainly higher.”
According to Politifact.com, a liberal propaganda arm of The Poynter Institute, please see my prior blog dealing with them,
…and according to Bill McCarthy, of Politifact, “Tucker Carlson’s claims about deaths after COVID-19 vaccinations are misleading.”
You mean like the number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 in the first place?
“Misleading” like that, Mr. McCarthy?
“Tucker Carlson was citing data from the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System database, or VAERS. The VAERS system is open to anyone, and reports to it are not verified, making it a breeding ground for misinformation about vaccine safety.”
VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, is a United States program for vaccine safety, co-managed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration.
Soooo, VAERS is “co-managed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (the FDA), otherwise known as the Fraudulent Drug Administration, but VAERS is “a breeding ground for misinformation about vaccine safety.”
Hmmm, how does that work exactly?
McCarthy continues by saying, “The entries in the VAERS database are not enough to determine whether a vaccine causes death or any other adverse event, experts said. People can die after getting vaccinated for any number of reasons unrelated to the vaccine.”
Just like “People can die after getting [the virus] for any number of reasons unrelated to the [virus].”
Is it just like that, McCarthy?
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] analyzed the death reports submitted to VAERS through May 3 and concluded that there’s no ‘causal link to COVID-19 vaccines.’”
I’m confused here.
But, isn’t VAERS “co-managed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC)?
So, the CDC is saying their own numbers are misleading themselves?
This may be the first instance I’ve seen of people throwing themselves under the bus!
This is what happens when lies catch up to you. You’re not only found out to be lying, but you look stupid as well.
“The comments were the latest in a series of controversial remarks by Carlson raising doubts about the vaccines, which clinical trials and real-world studies have shown both safe and effective.”
Safer than taking Hydroxychloroquine?
‘“Between late December of 2020 and last month, a total of 3,362 people apparently died after getting the COVID vaccine in the United States — 3,362,’ Carlson told millions of viewers during his primetime TV show May 5. ‘That’s an average of roughly 30 people every day.’”
‘“The actual number is almost certainly higher than that, perhaps vastly higher than that,’ he added. ‘It’s clear that what is happening now, for whatever reason, is not even close to normal.’”
‘“It is exceptionally irresponsible for this man to claim that all these are causal associations. It’s wrong,’ said Dr. Paul Offit, the chair of vaccinology at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine.”
Yes!!! How dare he?!!!
Only government authorized “swamp monsters” are allowed to make “exceptionally irresponsible” claims! Doesn’t he know that?!
“Unlike other official government sources, which flow through consistent reporting channels and get screened by statisticians and analysts before they are made available to the public, VAERS is an open-access system. The reports submitted are not verified before they become public.”
He means unlike other sources which are properly processed through the Democrats’ Gestapo propaganda ministry!
‘“Anybody can report to it,’ Offit said. ‘If I get a vaccine, or I give my child a vaccine, and I believe that they have turned into the “Incredible Hulk,” then I can write up a one-page report online and submit it, and that then is included. And that’s been done.’”
A disclaimer on the VAERS website says the ‘reports alone cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness,’ in part because they ‘may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information.’ People accessing the database must click an option that says that they’ve read and understand the disclaimer.”
“Offit said VAERS works best as ‘a hypothesis-generating mechanism’ that can tip scientists off to issues for further study, such as the rare cases of blood clots that prompted the agency to recommend a temporary pause on use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.”
“In this case, the CDC has analyzed all the reports of death among COVID-19 vaccine recipients that were submitted to VAERS between Dec. 14, 2020, and May 3.”
‘“A review of available clinical information, including death certificates, autopsy, and medical records has not established a causal link to COVID-19 vaccines,’ the agency concluded.”
“To establish causation, scientists need to find proof that an adverse event is significantly more common among vaccinated people than unvaccinated people. VAERS doesn’t provide enough data to do that.”
“As of May 5, nearly 150 million Americans have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and many of the early shots went to older and more vulnerable people.”
“When you’re giving a COVID-19 vaccine to elderly adults, there are going to be people who die shortly after vaccination because they would have died anyway,” Dr. William Moss, executive director of Johns Hopkins’s International Vaccine Access Center, previously told PolitiFact.
“An estimated 8,000 Americans die every day of all causes, according to the CDC.”
‘“You can get the vaccine and still die from other reasons,’ Offit said.”
One of my questions is, where’s the side block on the news screens showing the running number of vaccination deaths in the U.S. and worldwide?
Another question would be, how come we don’t hear ONE thing being reported about vaccination deaths?!
Isn’t it odd as well that the usual annual flu has basically disappeared?
Those of us with basic common sense just have to question this.
Regarding the yearly flu vaccines, on average, 140 million people get the shot and on average 183 people die.
Even if the COVID vaccination deaths are less than Tucker Carlson claims, but still three, four, five, or more times higher than the annual flu vaccination deaths, isn’t that news?
It’s only not news if you don’t want it to be.
