'We're not permitted to make the connection': Social worker shares aftermath of COVID vaccine injury

As a social worker known for her expertise when handling high-stress conflict management cases, Angela Loerzel Swafford figured she'd navigate her own concerns when it came to addressing her employers' vaccination mandate last fall.

And she definitely had concerns.

Like many hospitals and health systems across the nation during that time, the hospital where the 46-year-old was and is still employed required their health workers to get the jab. But Swafford suffers from a venous malformation, a condition where veins in the body develop in an unusual way. Because the abnormality can increase the risk of developing blood clots and deep vein thrombosis, she was hesitant about getting the COVID jab.

Striking correlation between autumn vaccine boosters and excess deaths in England as total non-Covid excess tops 23,000

excess mortality statistics
The excess deaths crisis continues, with 1,232 excess deaths - 12.3% above the five-year average - registered in England and Wales in the week ending October 28th, according to the ONS. Of these, 804 were attributed to an underlying cause other than COVID-19, bringing the total excess non-Covid deaths since the wave began in April to 23,287.

I have previously noted what appeared to be a correlation of excess non-Covid deaths with the rollout of the spring vaccine booster in April and May.

Sweden wins! Country that refused lockdowns and kept schools open has lowest pandemic mortality in the world

Professor Johan Giesecke, the best epidemiologist in the world

Professor Johan Giesecke, the best epidemiologist in the world
Professor Johan Giesecke, who first recruited Tegnell during his own time as state epidemiologist, used a rare interview last week to argue that the Swedish people would respond better to more sensible measures. He blasted the sort of lockdowns imposed in Britain and Australia and warned a second wave would be inevitable once the measures are eased.

"The Swedish Government decided early in January that the measures we should take against the pandemic should be evidence based. And when you start looking around at the measures being taken by different countries, you find very few of them have a shred of evidence-base," he said.

Giesecke, who has served as the first Chief Scientist of the European Centre for Disease Control and has been advising the Swedish Government during the pandemic, told the UnHerd website there was "almost no science" behind border closures and school closures and social distancing and said he looked forward to reviewing the course of the disease in a year's time.

"I think that the difference between countries will be quite small in the end," he said. "I don't think you can stop it. It's spreading. It will roll over Europe no matter what you do." — Stuff, April 22, 2020
Giesecke was almost correct. But, the difference between the countries in the end was not quite small. Sweden did much, much better - ten times better than Chile, in fact, notorious for having the strictest lockdowns 'despite' also having one of the most 'successful' vaccination campaigns.

As of reporting date June 19th 2022, of all the countries analysed by the OECD, Sweden has the lowest overall cumulative excess deaths tally.

Canadian doctors encouraged to tell patients about medically assisted death

doctor computer
Guidance documents given to Canada's providers of medically assisted death say that doctors must bring up medical assistance in dying (MAID) as an option when it's "medically relevant" and if the person is likely eligible, as part of a doctor's duty to provide informed consent.

The National Post reports that most jurisdictions in the world with legalized MAID prevent doctors from raising the practice with patients.

In Canada, there are no legal restrictions on who can bring up MAID. Some ethicists say that doctors introducing death as a treatment without having the patient having asked about it is a serious issue, especially as MAID expands in Canada to allow a wider array of people, with fears that some may be influenced into having their life ended, "Given the power dynamic of the doctor-patient relationship."

While on-the-ground resources for mental health have continued to dwindle for those in need, it was in 2015 that Canada's Supreme Court ruled that assisted suicide was constitutional. Then one year later, Parliament passed the Medical Assistance in Dying Act (MAiD) for "reasonably foreseeable death". Many other western "liberalized" countries have also followed suit with similar laws.

In the first year 2,800 people used the assisted suicide program. By 2021 the program had grown to more than 10,000. In aggregate, there have been a total of 31,664 MAiD assisted suicides since assisted suicide became legal in Canada.

What should be deeply worrying now — scary would not be too strong a word — is that under this Liberal-NDP regime, the availability of MAiD in Canada will be expanded next March to the mentally ill — including minors!

Even before expansion of the program to mentally ill and the young however, the federal government's assisted suicide program has now reached around five percent of deaths in provinces like Quebec and British Columbia. Indeed. Canada's permissive and shocking numbers are starting to generate criticism from both Forbes and Associated Press.

The assumption was that this program would be applied to those with terminal illness, mostly for elderly people in horrific pain from incurable ailments. Today, however, more and more young people are using the assisted suicide program as well.

Scrutiny has been growing since it was reported in August of this year that a federal Veterans Affairs official recommended assisted suicide to a veteran suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): "multiple sources reported that the "combat veteran never raised the issue, nor was he looking for MAID, and that he was deeply disturbed by the suggestion". The government claims this was "isolated" and the probe into this disturbing incident continues.

Dr. Thorp is a Board-Certified Obstetrician Gynecologist and Maternal Fetal Medicine Physician with over 43 years of obstetrical experience. While serving as a very busy clinician his entire career he has also been very active in clinical research with about 200 publications. Dr. Thorp is an extremely busy clinician and researcher. He has seen over 22,800 high risk pregnancies in the past three years. He has served as a reviewer for major medical journals, has served on the Board of Directors for the Society of Maternal Fetal Medicine, and also served the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology. He served in the United States Air Force as an Obstetrician Gynecologist having been awarded a Health Professions Scholarship for his medical school education. Dr. Thorp testified in the US Senate under the Bush administration in 2003 for his expertise in treating the fetus as a patient with in-utero therapies. Most recently Dr. Thorp has focused his research efforts on the COVID-19 pandemic and published several peer-reviewed scientific publications documenting the dangers of the vaccine in women of reproductive age and in pregnancy. His publications conclusively demonstrate that the COVID-19 "vaccination" experiment has been one of the greatest disasters in the history of medicine. Dr Thorp has clearly shown the mass death from COVID-19 pandemic that would have been prevented had the healthcare system and governmental agencies NOT prevented the widespread support of early and safe treatments proven successful by multiple experts around the world.

Why are people losing confidence in vaccines?

A new peer reviewed article in the journal Vaccine has been published comparing surveys data on attitudes to vaccination from before the pandemic with attitudes now.

The authors report that "paradoxically, despite the success of COVID-19 vaccination campaigns, vaccine confidence has significantly declined since the onset of the pandemic".

I am not quite sure why the authors appear so surprised at their result but a clue can be found in their use of the word "despite". In many countries the "success" of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign relied in large part in pressuring, bullying and sometimes coercing people to get vaccinated.

Comment: Only those completely entrenched in their bubble could possibly be puzzled by the idea that trust in the vaccines is decreasing. The answers are obvious to anyone with even a modicum of awareness. The overt use of force and coercion does not build trust! Duh!

Study finds 17% higher miscarriage rate in the vaccinated but pretends it doesn't

Pregnant women vaccination
A few days ago, I came across Dr. Viki Male, qualified with a science PhD in pathology rather than a medical degree, who lectures in reproductive immunology at Imperial College London. Dr. Male, cocooned in a white coat to provide the necessary medical gravitas, was the star of an NHS video promoting COVID-19 'vaccinations' (more properly experimental gene-based therapies) to pregnant mothers.

Comment: Despite all the evidence that the mRNA vaccines are much more dangerous than the SARS-CoV-2 virus itself, the psychopathic elites continue their propaganda and authoritarian rule that mRNA vaccines are safe and effective against an almost average flue like virus.

They know that we know that they are lying, but their propaganda machinery makes them look like they really care about our health. Unfortunately, many believed them and many who didn't believe them were forced to take the jabs. The results are devastating.

Now, we can clearly see the devastating results of the massive campaign with experimental mRNA vaccines. There are many sudden deaths of young healthy people, early miscarriages, and many vaccine-induced health conditions that make people suffer unnecessarily.

Will You Survive the 'Tripledemic'?

According to mainstream media, hospitalizations for respiratory infections are on the rise and "experts" warn of a potential "tripledemic" this winter, as people contract COVID,1 seasonal influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).2
"The CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] reports a 1% increase in new admissions of patients with confirmed COVID-19 in the U.S.," Yahoo! News reported at the end of October 2022.3
Far from being a pandemic of the unvaccinated, however, most COVID patients are now, in fact, fully jabbed. As noted by Yahoo! News (before urging everyone to stay up to date on their boosters):
"The state with the most COVID hospitalizations is Maine even though it has one of the country's highest full vaccination rates, which means a person has received their primary series of vaccinations (whether that's one or two doses) and two weeks have passed since their last dose."

Scottish government denies it recognizes masks are harmful

sturgeon mask
According to Section 53 of the Adult Support & Protection (Scotland) Act 2007: "Harm includes all harmful conduct and in particular, includes, conduct which causes physical harm and conduct which causes psychological harm (for example: by causing fear, alarm or distress)."

On November 2nd 2022, the Daily Sceptic published my article which set out the steps leading to the removal of routine mask-wearing in social care settings in Scotland. The Daily Sceptic titled the article, "Scottish Government finally admits that mask-wearing is harmful." The article has been shared thousands of times on social media, attracting the attention of fact-checkers who asserted that the Government did not deem masks were harmful. A Scottish Government spokesperson told fact-checkers at Reuters that the article was a "gross distortion of what the Government has said". He or she also stated that the guidance was "relaxed in line with the latest clinical advice after a sharp drop in infections and a reduction of severity of illness".

Clinical advice most likely played a part, but the guidance was updated on September 7th in direct response to the recommendations made at the round table meeting on August 16th, which I attended, where stakeholders met with key Government officials. Harms caused by mask-wearing to both users and providers of social care were clearly identified in a position statement which was shared with Government ministers in advance of the guidance being updated and published. We discussed and agreed on physical harms resulting from the detrimental impact of masks on quality of care and provision of person centred care, especially for those in the advanced stages of dementia. We also shared grave concerns in relation to psychological harms, mainly distress, caused to those with cognitive and sensory impairments.

Comment: Well as this article comment points out, the government stopped short of admitting that masks are harmful. Why would they do such a thing? Perhaps because if they were to admit conclusively that masks are harmful and that making people wear them for 2 years was not only ineffective but was actually dangerous, the public might not follow the advice so willingly next time they try to implement the same mandates.


Mercola interviews Shawn Baker about the Carnivore Diet - dangerous health fad or rescuer?

Carnivore Diet
In this interview, Dr. Shawn Baker discusses the carnivore diet, why he's on it and why he thinks it can be a beneficial choice for others. He also has a regular podcast called "Revero," where he shares his expertise on this topic. Revero is the name of the company he cofounded, which specializes in getting people off pharmaceuticals using diet and other lifestyle changes.

Baker's background is actually that of an orthopedic surgeon. He's also a competitive athlete and played professional rugby in New Zealand for a number of years. As he entered his 40s, he started experimenting with nutrition, and around 2008 got hooked on the ketogenic diet.
