Good morning, C&C, it’s Monday! It’s a brand new week and a packed roundup including: the jabby “drip, drip, drip” continues, with two new studies linking more “rare” serious vaccine injuries to the jabs; correlations between high jab rates and national excess deaths; thoughts about death reports; a record batch of FIVE coaching SADS cases; the heartbreaking confession of former 16-year old MTV trans star; and a feisty Florida Man clip to start your week off right.
🗞💬 *WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 💬🗞
💉 An eye-popping new study published in May in the Journal Nature titled, “Risk Assessment Of Retinal Vascular Occlusion After COVID-19 Vaccination.”
Retinal vascular occlusion occurs when a blood vessel in the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye, becomes blocked. It’s a sort of tiny blood clot. In serious cases, it leads to vision loss or blindness. In mild cases patients have floaters, burred vision, light flashes, and/or eye pain.
The researchers found a stark link between retinal occlusion and the safe and effective vaccines:
Individuals with COVID-19 vaccination had a higher risk of all forms of retinal vascular occlusion… The cumulative incidence of retinal vascular occlusion was significantly higher in the vaccinated compared to the unvaccinated, 2 years and 12 weeks after vaccination. The risk of retinal vascular occlusion significantly increased during the first 2 weeks after vaccination and persisted for [at least] 12 weeks. Additionally, individuals with first and second dose of BNT162b2 and mRNA-1273 had significantly increased risk of retinal vascular occlusion [for] 2 years following vaccination[.]
The researchers noted that, although vaccination greatly increased the risk of RVO, the absolute risk was still very small, between 7-10 per million shots. But as I see it, the bigger problem is: how many of these “rare” but disabling side effects does it take before a serious adverse event of SOME KIND is not rare?
Ironically, the study explains a lot about why scientists might be so blind to vaccine injuries. Their retinas might be occluded. And, for no particular reason, I’ll note the New Testament often links blindness to demonic possession. So.
You’ll recall that just last week I learned opposing counsel in one of my cases suddenly went blind — while driving. And, totally coincidentally, how about this article from Canadian TV News, dated July 2nd:
Science! I’m sure CTV’s “temperature blindness” news comes as a terrific surprise to everyone who lives in hot climates but can see just fine.
💉 On June 15th, a new paper was published in BURNS, the Journal of the International Society for Burn Injuries, and it described a medical who-dun-it, a baffling mystery. The paper was titled “The Seven-Fold Rise In Incidence Of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome & Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis: Associations With Covid-19 And The Vaccine.”
Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) is a rare, serious skin condition that causes the top layer of skin to die and slough off (shed), and often also affects mucous membranes, like the lining of the mouth, eyes, and the genitals. Ouch. Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN) is a very similar, related term describing more severe cases where over 30% of the skin is detached.
SJS/TEN looks a lot like third-degree burns, such as caused by boiling water, often over a person’s entire body. It is considered life-threatening, and requires immediate, emergency treatment.
Curiously, SJS/TEN is usually a type of drug reaction, normally caused by an allergic reaction to a medication, but in some cases it can also be caused by infections like mycoplasma pneumonia and hepatitis A. Because of the widespread skin shedding, which presents like a bad burn, patients are usually treated in burn units.
There is no cure for SJS/TEN, but some treatments can help improve outcomes.
Pre-pandemic, the burn unit at Concord General Hospital in Australia only saw 2 to 4 cases of SJS/TEN per year. But just in the first half of 2022, Concord saw fourteen cases of the dreadful syndrome — seven times the pre-pandemic annual average in just six months — prompting the study.
The researchers immediately noticed that none — not one — of the fourteen cases was in an unvaccinated person. Three of the fourteen had been recently jabbed, within the prior 30 days. Five patients — even though jabbed — had covid within the prior 30 days.
They offered three theories to explain what could be going on. First, it could’ve been covid. On the pro- side, in the literature they found five other cases of covid right before SJS/TEN. But … 100% of their patients were jabbed.
So second, maybe the vaccines could have caused it, which would explain their fully-jabbed patient group. They found eight other cases of SJS/TEN following covid vaccination in published studies. (Concord’s cluster of 14 blew out everything previously published.)
But third, and this is the theory that makes the most sense to me, they suggested the vaccine somehow makes it more likely a person’s body reacts badly to some other medication, leading to SJS/TEN. Here’s how they described the third theory:
The SARS-COV-2 virus or vaccine may lower the threshold for a drug to trigger SJS/TEN. We hypothesise that the virus or vaccine “primes” the immune system for a drug to cause SJS/TEN, which may not have done so without this “priming.” [For example,] Infectious mononucleosis … has this “priming” effect to induce a drug induced hypersensitivity (DiHS) reaction when an individual is exposed to penicillin.
The third theory would be consistent with the damage we are seeing caused to people’s immune systems after the shots. After all, SJS/TEN is a hypersensitivity condition, a type of allergic reaction, which is an auto-immune response.
On the bright side, nowhere in the study did the words “safe” or “effective” appear, nor any other glowing praise of the shots, which is progress.
📈 In the Sunday subscriber edition I published a detailed roundup of the most recent excess morbidity and mortality data, which — against what I’d hoped — shows no sign whatsoever of slowing down, even though most people stopped taking the jabs over six months ago. In fact, it’s just the opposite. I’ll summarize it this morning with a single chart and some anecdotal comments.
A correlation is shaping up between excess deaths and jab rates. Here’s what the last half of 2022 looks like, comparing national jab rates (doses per capita) with total national excess deaths (as a percentage over normal):
“But Jeff! Correlation does not equal causation! And you’re just a lawyer!” Yes, yes, I know all that. Correlation does not EQUAL causation, but it is EVIDENCE of causation. Can we agree on that much?
Today I’m going to show you FIVE recent sudden adult deaths — just in COACHES.
I often wonder whether including all these SADS cases is consistent with C&C’s optimistic theme and if I should maybe just give it up to other bloggers. But ultimately I always conclude it’s just too important. We need to SEE their faces. We need to REMEMBER these folks. None of them deserved this; even the most ardent pro-jab activists were deluded by the most sophisticated government-funded psychological operation in world history since the Tower of Babel project.
They are all victims.
As you know, I focus mainly on high-visibility folks like celebrities, doctors, and sports figures, for four reasons. For better or worse, their deaths are more interesting and still catch people’s eyes in a sea of similar stories. Second, by virtue of their demanding jobs, they are some of the healthiest folks around. Third, as a well-defined, relatively small group of people, they represent the tip of a massive iceberg of the rest of us. Fourth, regular folks’ deaths rarely make the news, but high profile deaths almost always do.
I only label these cases “sudden” and “unexpected” if one of those words is included in the news or the obituary, or if friends and family were reported to be “shocked” or “surprised.” I’m now calling them “mysterious” whenever no cause of death is released.
Anyway, the pace has definitely picked up. At first, I thought maybe it was just because I was getting better at rooting them out, and because my usual sources were getting better at reporting them. But that’s not enough to explain it anymore. Even among the high-visibility group, I’ve had to start leaving some stories out; I simply can’t keep up with them all.
So as I said, today I offer you a batch of five coaches, all sudden deaths, all within the last month or so, all active and healthy. Not from any morbid curiosity, but from what it allows us to easily extrapolate about what must be happening everywhere to too many people who don’t make the news.
The safest and most effective vaccine in history!
💉 COACH SADS NUMBER #1. Montana State Bobcats defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator Jonathan “Bo” Beck, 51, died suddenly, mysteriously, and unexpectedly in his sleep on June 22nd AT HOME. Never made it to the hospital. Never even woke up.
Bo coached football since 1994 in NCAA Division I, Division II and high school, and was an American Football Coaches Association Assistant Coach of the Year Finalist in 2015.
The coach’s obituary did not mention his cause of death. It’s a mystery. At least he never saw it coming.
💉 COACH SADS NUMBER #2. Frankfurt, Germany soccer coach and trainer Christian Reibold, 38, died suddenly, mysteriously, and unexpectedly this week. His team, SV Hellas Darmstadt, is in mourning and is as baffled as anyone as to what might have slain the healthy young father.
💉 COACH SADS NUMBER #3. Beloved Italian basketball coach Titto Porcelli, 56, died suddenly and unexpectedly in his sleep in the early morning of July 3rd, while on vacation for two days with his family in Puglia, Italy. An article in Traniviva reported it was “probably from a heart attack.”
💉 COACH SADS NUMBER #4. Olympic gold medalist, WNBA star and Rutgers basketball coach Nikki McCray-Penson, 51, died mysteriously, suddenly, and unexpectedly on July 7th, 2023.
Yahoo Sports said Nikki was “reportedly battling cancer and a bout of pneumonia.” They didn’t cite the source of that information. But the New York Times, which also covered her death, said she’d had breast cancer years ago in 2013, and reported Rutgers “did not say where she died or cite a cause.”
Nikki is survived by her husband, Thomas Penson, and her son, Thomas Jr. Rest in peace, coach.
💉 COACH SADS NUMBER #5. Beloved StonyBrook football defensive coordinator Bryan Collins, 58, died suddenly and unexpectedly of a mysterious “cardiac event” over the weekend. Uh huh.
“Our StonyBrook Athletics family is devastated by the sudden passing of our dear friend and colleague Bryan Collins,” the University’s statement said. Newsday reported Bryan’s family said he’d died after a “cardiac event.”
Before taking his current job, Bryan was LIU Post’s winningest head coach, snagging 162 victories and leading the program to six NCAA Tournament appearances and eight Northeast 10 Conference championships, in a storied career spanning from 2001 through 2018.
Based on the number of heartfelt comments on various twitter posts about coach Byran’s death, he touched a whole lot of lives. Several times I noticed someone’s remark that, “he saved my life.” God bless you, Coach Collins, and may your reward in Heaven be great.
Bryan saved others but couldn’t save himself. He never had a chance.
🔥 This next video clip is a heart wrenching personal statement from Milo, one of six “real-life” youth featured in a 2016 MTV documentary about trans youth called Transformation.
2016! We should have caught this trans nonsense back when it was first starting up. I blame MTV. Nobody watches that channel, not since the 80’s when it actually offered something worth watching.
Anyway, now, seven years later, one of the six celebrated kids from the 2016 MTV special has regrets:
Milo, now 23, regrets all the permanent surgeries, the irreversible hormone treatments, the side effects and the complications. Plus, Milo suspects the truth is she’s really autistic and was just frightened by male attention, and not actually “a man.”
Her video was brutally honest:
“So now I’m stuck. I’m stuck looking like a man and sounding like a man. I think I completely regret everything I’ve done. I’m heartbroken. Um. I don’t want to be made into a horror story. I don’t want my story to be politicized… For me, it wasn’t the solution, because I still have all these problems that I thought would disappear. I don’t know how I’m going to move forward. I don’t know how I’m going to accept myself, what was done to me. I know I can’t blame myself, because I was a teenager.”
Lest you too quickly condemn Milo’s mother, who giddily appears all over the 2016 MTV documentary, Milo said the only reason she’s still here on Earth is the support she’s getting from her parents. One can only imagine Milo’s parents’ irresolvable regret and bottomless self-recrimination.
Milo was incredibly brave to come out like this. Local communities need to come around these kids and try to help them find meaning and purpose in life, because the trans activists discard them faster than a junkie throws away a broken needle.
As a reminder, gender dysphoria is the ONLY psychological condition treated with irreversible surgical and hormonal interventions, and what does that tell you?
🔥 On the brighter side, the pandemic didn’t kill Florida Man! Florida Man was just on holiday. Here’s what he was up to over the 4th of July weekend:
Well, what ELSE are you going to do when you have a gator on your fishing boat? Think, people.
Florida Man power.
