Why can't everyone condemn Hamas?

Following Hamas' atrocities in Israel, the media are awash with commentary, so I will keep my comments short. I am shocked by the willin...

Palestinians speak out against Hamas!

Following Hamas's Oct 7 massacre of Israeli's civilians, and the consequent war between Hamas and Israel, much of the Western world has seen noisy, intrusive & disruptive, 'mostly peaceful', anti-Israel and antisemitic demonstrations. Large crowds have expressed their support for the civilian victims of the war as well as support for Hamas' genocidal call "from the River to the Sea ". 

In a crowd of thousands. no doubt some were only there to support civilian victims, but, given the genocidal chants, many were there to support Hamas. These 'useful idiots' justify their support for the murderous terrorists by blaming Israel, Zionists or just Jews for the supposed "occupation" of Gaza, forgetting that Gaza had not been occupied since 2005. Or worse still accepting Hamas' call to remove all Israelis, and Jews from "the river to the sea". This widespread antisemitic tidal wave to what was a blatant unprovoked attack by Hamas is a shameful betrayal of the "never again' mantra following the defeat of Nazi Germany 80 years ago. 

So much for the Western democratic world. But how do the citizens of Gaza feel? How does the Middle Eastern Arab world feel about the war? It is difficult to know as Hamas still controls much of what comes out of Gaza. If you were to publish something they don't like, the punishment would be painful and permanent. Nevertheless, word is slowly coming out. It is just a trickle but it has started.

Here are a couple of Youtube videos recording the views of the Arab world. It seems many of Gaza's civilians are not happy with Hamas 

As Israel disarms Hamas I expect more voices will be heard. 

The elimination of Hamas as the governing force in Gaza is the best chance for Gaza's civilians to have a peaceful & prosperous life.

Why is the CSIRO lying to us?

Our ever-zealous Minister for Climate Change, Mr Chris Bowen, is incessantly reminding us that Nuclear is the most expensive source of energy. Is this possibly true? Well, it seems not. A recent short YouTube video titled More misinformation from CSIRO on Nuclear calls out the lie, or should I just call it 'disinformation'. 

Chris Bowen's justification relies on the CSIRO's Annual Gencost report that does indeed claim Nuclear is the most expensive form of energy. The problem is that the CSIRO did NOT investigate the nuclear option with the same objective analysis it provided for Wind and Solar. It based its costings on a single SMR (Small Modular Reactor) with a large development cost. However, it did not consider full-scale Nuclear or indeed small-scale Nuclear, which has many implementations around the world. Tried and true technology, available and with predictable costing. In fact, CSIRO did not even explore the nuclear option with experts in the field. They relied on input from renewable energy providers and even government bureaucrats. 

If that weren't enough, the CSIRO has also been caught 'misinforming' us about the costs of the pumped hydro technology. This time understating the cost of such technologies.

Again a short video of the senate hearing provides the background. The video is titled CSIRO’s GenCost is Just a Wind and Solar Fairy-tale! and covers the incisive questions by Senator Roberts. Thank you senator for speaking up.

So there you are. It seems our CSIRO is no longer a respectable objective presenter of scientific research, but an advocate of a preferred technology and willing to tilt the objective truth to push an agenda. Shame! Shame!

Will Thorium be the magic bullet?

In my post of almost a decade ago, "What the heck is Thorium? I covered the key reasons Thorium is a potential magic bullet to enable low-cost, safe abundant clean energy to power the world.

The summary from that post was as follows;-

Summary from "What the heck is Thorium"
Nuclear power can generate base-load power without CO2 emissions at low cost.

However Nuclear power suffers from; -
    • safety risks
    • proliferation of materials which can be used in WMDs
    • generation of high volumes of long lived highly radioactive waste
    • supply is limited   
Thorium nuclear power can also generate base-load power without CO2 emissions at even lower cost than Uranium based nuclear power.

Moreover the Thorium LFTR design addresses all the downsides of Uranium reactors.
Thorium LFTR ;-
  • is relatively safe
  • generates much lower volumes of waste, with lower radiation and shorter life
  • safe from proliferation as waste is limited and NO Plutonium is produced
  • the supply is abundant and projected to last >1000 years.
For all these reasons Thorium seems to measure up to the hype. It holds the promise of clean low cost energy for an energy hungry world."

In a range of subsequent posts I covered various aspects of the development of Thorium rectors. See Thorium nuclear updateThorium nuclear experiments in Europe, and Safe nuclear passes first hurdle! 

So what is new? A new nuclear reactor design that can use Thorium fuel as well as existing nuclear waste. The new reactor design called the Dual Fluid reactor was invented by six collaborators working in the Institute for Solid-State Nuclear Physics in Berlin. In February 2021, the six inventors, along with the existing team, formed Canadian company Dual Fluid Energy Inc. which is to commercialize the design. The reactor has not been built yet, so much can go wrong. After all the Thorium magic bullet has been imminent for decades. 

Here is an infomercial on the technology; -

Given the recent energy stresses in much of the world, the rush to renewables is being downgraded in favour of baseload technologies, coal, gas and most importantly nuclear. Nuclear holds the most promise as it is the only scalable low emission energy technology. So it is not surprising that Thorium and the new Dual Fluid Reactor will generate great interest.

Exposing media lies about Israel's humanitarian support of Gaza's civilians

If you listen to mainstream media you will hear many claims about how Israel is conducting its war against Hamas and its neglect of Gaza's civilian population. Claims that Israel is preventing access to drinking water, preventing access to hospitals and preventing aid from reaching civilians. That is ignoring the wild claims by Hamas apologists that Israel is perpetrating "genocide" against Gaza's civilian population, that Israel is intentionally targeting civilians.

Yet Israel has gone out of its way to provide access to media with the facts on the ground. While during the "fog of war" listening to just one side is always fraught, after many wars and reviews by international organisations, including the UN, Israel has proven itself a credible and responsible country. 

In a recent YouTube video, Eylon Levy describes the support Israel is providing to Gaza's civilians. Titled Israel-Hamas war: 67 killed in Rafah raid, Eylon Levy gives Israeli govt. update | LiveNOW from FOX

WHY IS IT SO?........2024

I don't usually forward the sea of emails I receive daily from friends. Most are cartoons, or jokes, and occasionally articles that happen to agree with their opinion, and, of course, happen to disagree with mine. But I am making an exception in this case, as these few questions seem to skewer the zeitgeist. I often lament that our world is upside down, that what was normal and reasonable just a few years ago has become unacceptable, wrong or even offensive.

So here are the questions. (I would have provided a source, but in this case, it was just from a friend. If you know the source and wish to share it with me I will add it to this post.)

Why is it so?

Are we living in a time where intelligent people are silenced so that stupid people won't be offended?

Why is it that when archaeologists find human remains, they can determine whether they're male or female but none of the other dozen genders?

How is it that the government can't control petrol prices…but the weather is something they can fix?

We're churning out a generation of poorly educated people with no skills, no ambition, no guidance, and no realistic expectations of what it means to go to work.

Why are we told to lower Air Conditioner usage on hot days to prevent overwhelming the electric grid while simultaneously being told to trade in petrol cars for electric vehicles?

Why is cancelling student debt a good idea? Does it make sense to reward people who do not honour their financial commitment by taxing people who do?

Why is talking sexually in the workplace considered sexual harassment to adults…but talking about sexuality to children Grade 3 at school considered education?

If your electric car runs out of power on the motorway, do you walk to a charging station to get a bucket of electricity?

Why are we running out of money for Medicare and not for welfare?

Mice die in mouse traps because they do not understand why the cheese is free. Just like socialism.

The most powerful governments on earth can't stop a virus from spreading…but say they can change the earth's temperature if you pay more tax.

10 Questions to be answered before a Palestinian state is proposed!

With the war between Israel and Hamas still raging, the Western world has dusted off the Two-State solution. There have been extensive noisy marches in Western cities in support of the Palestinian victims of this war. Too often the chants at these rallies are antisemitic and even genocidal. Any reasoned analysis cannot place blame on Israel for this war. Nevertheless, governments do need to show some sort of action to their voting public, especially their Muslim base, so they triangulate the issue by calling for a Two-State solution, with two countries, Palestine and Israel, living side by side in peaceful harmony. Never mind the refusal by Palestinian leaders to accept a state some 7 times in the last 7 decades. Never mind the example of what happened when Israel unilaterally left Gaza in 2005 thereby establishing a de-facto Palestinian state. There was no peaceful co-existence. The dream turned into a nightmare for Israel with 20 years of terrorist attacks, rockets raining down on its cities and the most recent massacre of its citizens in an unprovoked attack. So one must ask "What do these Western leaders really think?" Are they deluding themselves, or are they just playing petty politics trying to keep faith with their Muslim voters? Certainly, the Israelis now have no illusions, with the virtually unanimous rejection of a two-state solution.

In response to the revival of the push for the 2-stte solution Steven Zipperstein in his blog raised the question "What would the Palestinian state of a two-state solution look like?

In response he has posed 10 questions, the answers to which would define this new state. 
I will let you read the full article, which I recommend. But here are the questions

  1. Will the State of Palestine sign a peace treaty with Israel on Day One? Or will it view Israel as an enemy?
  2. Will the State of Palestine be a democracy or an autocracy? Will it be secular or theocratic? Will Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and other terrorist organizations be banned, or will they be allowed to play a role in governing the State of Palestine?
  3. Will the State of Palestine have an army, or will it agree to be demilitarized?
  4. Will the State of Palestine abide by the broken commitments the PLO undertook in the Oslo Accords to renounce terrorism? Will the State of Palestine continue the Palestinian Authority’s pay-for-slay policy for terrorists and their families?
  5. Will the State of Palestine maintain trade and other economic relations with Israel? Will it renounce the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel?
  6. Will the State of Palestine stop teaching its schoolchildren to hate Jews? 
  7. Will the State of Palestine aspire to borders stretching “from the River to the Sea”? Or will it be content with statehood encompassing only the West Bank and the Gaza Strip?
  8. Will the State of Palestine drop the various cases it is pursuing against Israel in the international courts?
  9. Will the State of Palestine establish alliances with Iran, North Korea, Hezbollah, and the Houthis?
  10. Will the State of Palestine agree to regular and robust international inspections to ensure it is not digging attack tunnels, acquiring or building rockets and other weapons of war, or undertaking any form of potential military or terrorist action against Israel?
These are excellent questions. No one should be proposing a state for the Palestinians without being very clear about the type of state they are proposing. Israel deserves peace for its citizens. It cannot be guaranteed without restrictions on the type of Palestinian state that is established.

Noisy minority abuse their National Day

Australia Day has come and gone, and it has been sobering. It was far from us "singing with one Voice that we are Australian" and celebrating the wonderful country that we have collectively created and inherited, Instead, it has been the most divisive spectacle that I have seen over my many decades of Australian life. Councils cancelling citizenship ceremonies, loud mobs rallying in our cities screaming anti-Australian and anti-Semitic slogans, corporations refusing to stock Australia Day merchandise and vandals painting anti-Australian slogans on monuments and even sawing off a Captain Cool statue. 

This is not the Australia I know and love. This is NOT the mainstream average fair dinkum, larrikin, good bloke, tolerant and freedom-loving, and respectful Aussie. Where has he gone?  Are these anti- Australian protesters representative of the rest of us? I believe not. I think the quiet good old Aussie is 
still here. And he is still the same. He does not accept what the noisy loudmouths scream at him. He just says let them scream, who cares. Confident in himself he does not speak up easily, perhaps avoiding confrontation. As a result, the majority view is being drowned out by a noisy minority. Really a very noisy minority. 

So how do we fight back? How do we get back to the old Australia's peaceful tolerant acceptance of each other? How do we quell these noisy haters?

I am not sure. But I am guessing the type of decisive feedback that the Voice referendum gave to those who wanted to divide us by race gives a clue. Our politicians must give us a choice and must have the courage to put forward the old-fashioned, conservative, views that the majority of us would support. We need the LNP to be willing to take part in the 'culture wars' to allow the silent majority to have their voices heard. There is evidence that Dutton and Littleproud have read the room. Their successful rejection of the Voice has boosted their confidence. With Albo and his team trying to impose further left-wing policies, there are plenty of opportunities to take a stand. 

About Australia Day, certainly Jacinta Price's suggestion that the LNP proposes to legislate the date of Australia Day is worth considering. It would receive majority support and may wedge Labor. A similar stand can be made with regard to the councils that refused citizenship ceremonies on Australia Day. Perhaps those that refuse to hold them on Australia day, they should lose all rights to hold citizenship ceremonies.
Of course, I am not the only one disappointed in our Australia Day this year. Manu commentators have voiced similar concerns
. Here is just one of them. This article by James McPherson's Notes on a Depressing Australia Day gives one more view.

Safe and secure, NOT!

In a recent post I asked the question "Will 2024 US election be safest and most secure?"

Most opportune I came across a tweet, really a series of tweets,  by KanekoaTheGreat (@KanekoaTheGreat) providing extensive "Summary of Election Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election in the Swing States", released by President Trump

Please follow the link and judge for yourselves. 

There does seem to be a lot of smoke! 

If that were not enough, again just recently, in a court case against Dominion voting machine company a witness for the Plaintiff hacked the Dominion tabulators in the courtroom in a matter of minutes. Proving the machines are far from secure.  See https://x.com/JohnBasham/status/1749013140472271269?s=20
As noted in the above tweet; -

"UPDATE: The Federal Judge In Atlanta, Judge Amy Totenberg, Is A
Appointee. This Lawsuit; On The Asserted Easy Hackability Of Dominion Voting Systems Used In Georgia, Was Originally Filed By A Coalition Of Plaintiffs That Judge Totenberg Describes As NOT “Conspiracy Theorists Of Any Variety” Who Are Largely POLITICALLY LEFT-LEANING PLAINTIFFS Whose Suit Was Filed In Georgia LONG BEFORE THE 2020 ELECTION. They Argue That The Dominion Voting Systems Used In Georgia Present Security Risks That State Officials Are Constitutionally Obligated To Address & They Have The Support. In An Order Setting This Lawsuit For Trial Judge Totenberg wrote, The Machines Vulnerability To Simple Hacks Has Been Identified By “Some Of The Nation’s Leading Cybersecurity Experts & Computer Scientists.”

Incidentally, the plaintiffs are NOT Republicans, they are "politically left leaning" group use of protesting the Dominion Voting machines becasue of their vulnerability. Follow the link for more details.

What does this all mean? Certainly, there is plenty of evidence to show the elections of 2018, 2020 and 2022 were not "safe and secure". The inevitable conclusion is that there is no way the 2024 elections will be safe and secure either.

The US must address election practices, lest the erosion of trust by voters will destroy their democracy.

Will 2024 US election be safest and most secure?

A recent article in the Epoch Times titled Voter Fraud Convictions Challenge Narrative of Secure Elections provides an overview of the many electoral , lets call them 'shenanigans', that have become inconvenient truths to the 'safe and secure' declarations by those liking the results. For decades American machine-based complex electoral system has been suspect. After every election usually just the losing side has declared they have been robbed due to fraud, miscount, Russia interference, machine malfunction, foreign hacking and the like. 

There have also been many cases of proven fraud in various forms and even proven machine malfunction. 

The most recent presidential election of 2020 was perhaps the most debated and even today according to a Rasmussen poll some 30% of voters believe that the election was 'rigged'. Of course 'rigged' is a broad term and it includes electoral interference in a multitude of ways; fraudulent votes, misinformation or disinformation, by media withholding information on Hunter Biden's laptop, the ex CIA authorities claiming the laptop was a Russian plot, the modification of absentee vote procedures contrary to state legislation with COVID as the excuse. Indeed an article in Time magazinedetailed the extent to which the Democratic party 'fortified' their votes by let's face it 'shenanigans'. 

The Epoch Times article lists several recent electoral fraud cases when laws were broken courts found and sentenced guilty parties, and even nullified elections.  After the 2020 election, there were thousands of affidavits by observers and election workers of what appeared to be fraud. Many led to court cases, some 60 in total. Most however did not go to face judgement as the claims were dismissed due to technicalities. The few that did go to court mostly resulted in wins for the claimants.

So why am I revisiting this issue today some 3 years after the last election? We are now 11 months from the next significant election and nothing seems to have changed to tighten up the electoral system. Indeed it is in many cases far worse. The media, big tech, Biden's institutions (DOJ and FBI) are even more polarised than they were in 2020. So no matter who wins the election there will be extensive claims of electoral fraud. 

If Republicans win it will be against the tide of anti-Republican leanings by most of the power centres of the US political scene. The Democrats will no doubt generate a crescendo of calls to nullify the results, as they did in 2016. 

If the Democrats win the Republicans will no doubt also claim they have been cheated, as Trump has claimed now for 3 years, and no doubt with some justification.

So what can be done about this? I would suggest the electoral system must be simplified. Machines invite abuse, absentee voting invites abuse, and lack of identification opens abuse. A majority of the World's democracies have elections with paper ballots, manually counted, with in-person voting on election day.   Absentee ballots are allowed but they are highly restricted and with mandatory identification. Results are out within the day or in unusual cases a week. It is not that hard.

The key elements; -
  • paper ballots
  • in person voting on election day 
  • voters marked off against a roll after providing ID
  • all ballots are manually counted in locations close to where voting takes place
Australia has mandatory voting which also eliminates all the effort by parties to get people out to vote. You do not actually have to vote, but you do have to go and have your name maarked off on the electoral roll, again on the day of the election. Elections are on Saturdays , again allowing people to vote without affecting most people's work. It is your duty as a citizen. This also ensures the electoral roles are up to date, to some extent.

Unless there is substantial reform of the system the US will repeat the farcical situation where a substantial proportion of the population believes the election was rigged. No democracy can survive if elections are not trusted by the voters.

Humorous Short Videos poking fun at the Woke

This afternoon my grandson showed me some humorous videos on TikTok that I thought was worth sharing. The videos are quite short and point fun at the Woke Left in a direct humorous way. 

Here are a couple. 

The first is on 'masks are symbolic' ;-

and another 'Liberals confuse me'

Yeh, they are simple, and humorous and poke fun at the strange ideas that the Woke seem to accept without question.

I was curious about the background and found these videos are really part of the marketing materials for a dating app for conservatives. I did not realize this was a demographic in demand, but on reflection can see the logic of it. After all, being young, single, conservative and seeking a date with someone with similar views would not be easy. 

The presenter of the shorts is one of the founders of The Right Stuff,  John McEntee. You can check the background on Wikipedia at "The Right Stuff".  (Of course, treat all Wikipedia entries with some caution especially when they cover topics that have a current political aspect, like this one.) 

On YouTube you can see the full range of shorts, quite a lot of them. Of course you can also check out some of the dating options.

In praise of meritocracy

Meritocracy is the system that rewards individuals based on their abilities and achievements, regardless of their social, cultural, or economic background. "The concept originates, at least by the sixth century BC, when it was advocated by the Chinese philosopher Confucius, who "invented the notion that those who govern should do so because of merit, not of inherited status."  Since that time it has evolved into an absolute ideal to promote a successful society that does not discriminate against individuals based on their race, sexual orientation or any other group identity, while encouraging personal development and effort. So why would any post suggest that meritocracy needs to be praised?
Of course, anyone reading this is well aware that meritocracy, the long-sought ideal has been all but subsumed by DEI, Diversity Equity and Inclusion. DEI upends meritocracy and prioritizes identity groups over merit. No longer do we choose the best person for the job based on their abilities, we now select based on a whole range of factors that define the so-called 'identity group' to which the individual belongs.

The idea is that by doing so we will have redressed the inequities that hold back some identity groups in our societies. Historical inequities due to race, gender, sexual orientation, or any one of a whole range of other factors. So instead of appointing an individual on their merit we should evaluate all the candidates and select the one most qualified by their identity group. When appointing someone not best suited for the job, we should assume he will either grow into the job, by magically developing the skills required. Or even if he doesn't, we accept the poorer performance on the basis that society has benefited by our having given this person an opportunity he would otherwise have not had. This trades off excellence for some theoretical societal benefit.

However, this is sophistry. Most of us know it, but like the crowd watching the naked emperor, we are all too weak to call it out. So let me do it. Society is NOT better off when we choose mediocrity over excellence. By failing to appoint the best person for the job, we destroy the driving force of social progress; incentive. People will not make the effort to improve themselves if there is no incentive to do so. Moreover, if less capable people are appointed to an organisation, the organisation too will suffer.

DEI has other issues too. Selecting one race in preference to any other is simply racist. Selecting one gender over any other is just sexist. Selecting one sexual orientation over any other is clearly discriminatory. So any analysis of DEI fails to justify its use. Yet over the past decade, it has infiltrated every aspect of many Western Societies. It has spread like a virus from academia, through education, media, politics, and business. Most organisations now have DEI officers and work to subjugate candidate merit in favour of identity groups. 

Despite its wide influence, DEI has had its problems of late. People are waking up, and fighting back. I expect this to continue. Several US states have legislated to prevent the use of DEI by corporations. Some large investment funds, perhaps as a consequence of the government edicts, have removed their DEI edicts. And most recently following a SCOTUS ruling Ivy League universities have come under fire for their discriminatory enrolment policies. 

Nevertheless, DEI remains a cancer that is eating away at the very fabric of our societies. The appointment of any person not best qualified to perform a job is the road to mediocrity. Yet I am sure we can all think of many senior and public appointments that can only be explained by some sort of  DEI selection. Sometimes the incompetence is blatant. 

Just look at the short list of senior appointments by the Biden administration and consider whether these people should have been appointed to their positions if it wasn't for DEI. Would they be the best suited for their jobs?

Of course one can never deny these people as having any merit, however, when the announcement of their jobs includes their identity group, it implies that the identity group played a significant role in their appointment.

Merit, the best person for the job, the one who will deliver results. It is not difficult. If you subjugate merit to ANYTHING else, you will get inferior results. Sometimes disastrous results. 

There is no greater poison in society than the abandonment of meritocracy.

What is life like for citizens of Gaza?

The war between Hamas and Israel has been going for 3 months. It has wrought devastation for Gaza and its citizens. It has also spawned many vocal, often antisemitic rallies, marches, and convoys in support of "Palestine"/Hamas in most Western Cities. 

Given Hamas started this war, many, most probably a large majority, believe Israel had no choice but to fight back and that if Israel were successful in eliminating Hamas, it would liberate Gazans from their oppression by Hamas. Most Western media have given some twisted legitimacy to Hamas's atrocities in an inverted morality, blaming the victims for the crimes of Hamas. No doubt it is partly support for the weaker party, support for the innocent victims, and partly anti-Israel and antisemitic bias. 

While this is widely debated in the Western media there is very little coming out of Gaza. Perhaps this is not surprising given Hamas' absolute control of Gaza's citizenry. Nevertheless, we have had some snippets of dissent mainly on the Middle East-based media, Egypt, Al Jazeera etc.
In November a longer piece titled "What Is Life Like for Palestinians in Gaza? was posted on YouTube. Using video snippets and commentary by Gaza's citizens together with historical footage from a wide range of media, it paints a different picture than we are traditionally shown in our Western media. Life in Gaza is terrible and it seems Gazans, at least some would love to get rid of Hamas and be allowed to live their lives without Hamas' oppression.

So well worth view!

Pfizer malfeasance?

A recent edition of Trialsite News highlighted what appears to be a smoking gun indicating Pfizer 'shenanigans' relating to the data they published on the efficacy of their COVID vaccine.  In their article titled Intensive Interrogation of Pfizer BNT162b2 Trial Data—Appears to be Research Malfeasance, Cover-Up?

I hve incldued the references so you can get into the details, if you are so inclined. It becomes very technical quite quickly. And I try to avoid the technicalities whenever possible. 

In summary they reviewed the data Pfizer published of their own testing of their COVID vaccine. They found inconsitencies in the reported success rate. Given the extent and significance of the missing data they imply this was due to intentional 'manipulation' of the data.

I reproduce the abstract here and highlight the section implying issues with the data.

"Abstract and Figures

The analysis reported here is unique in that it is the first study of the original data from the Pfizer/BioNTech BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine clinical trial (CA4591001) to be carried out by a group unaffiliated with the trial sponsor. Our study is a forensic analysis of the 38 trial subjects who died between July 27, 2020, the start of Phase 2/3 of the clinical trial, and March 13, 2021, the data end date of their 6-Month Interim Report. Phase 2/3 of the trial involved 44,060 subjects who were equally distributed into two groups and received Dose 1 of either the BNT162b2 mRNA vaccinated or the Placebo control (0.9% normal saline). At Week 20, when the BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine received Emergency Use Authorization from the U.S. FDA, subjects in the placebo arm were given the option to be BNT162b2 vaccinated. All but a few accepted. Surprisingly, a comparison of the number of subject deaths per week during the 33 Weeks of this study found no significant difference between the number of deaths in the vaccinated versus placebo arms for the first 20 weeks of the trial, the placebo-controlled portion of the trial. After Week 20, as subjects in the Placebo were unblinded and vaccinated, deaths among this still unvaccinated cohort of this group slowed and eventually plateaued. Deaths in the BNT162b2 vaccinated subjects continued at the same rate. Our analysis revealed inconsistencies between the subject data listed in the 6-Month Interim Report and publications authored by Pfizer/BioNTech trial site administrators. Most importantly, we found evidence of an over 3.7-fold increase in number of deaths due to cardiovascular events in BNT162b2 vaccinated subjects compared to Placebo controls. This significant adverse event signal was not reported by Pfizer/BioNTech. Potential sources of these data inconsistencies are identified."

This paper was published in October. Have you read about it at all?  Our mainstream media, our medical fraternity and our politicians continue to have their heads in the sand. One day, I expect this dam of silence will break and all hell will break lose. Let's hope it is before we continue to vaccinate people with a vaccine that seems to do more harm than the disease it is trying to prevent.
