And all this stuff has been published in peer-reviewed articles, has it?

Not a direct reply to your query (or was it a rhetorical remark ???) .... but since you respect papers and articles, I suggest watching this (and maybe borrowing the book from the library):

Quote

As much of the world rushes to receive a lightly-tested pharmaceutical product, we thought it was high time to look again at the (very) big business of medicine. Leemon McHenry, PhD, guides us to the fraudulent core of ghostwritten studies, captured legislators, revolving-door regulatory agencies, pay-to-play medical journals, and the "key opinion leaders" who lend their academic credentials to giant corporations...for a price.  

With every stage in the process seemingly structured for corruption,  we can only wonder along with Professor McHenry: "Who's looking out for scientific integrity?"

By the time you finish this episode of Perspectives, you might just roll down your sleeve for a rethink.

This is neither a meaningful,  nor a productive question. Address the arguments made and if you disagree with specific points, show why you do.

I don't agree with many things Martenson says, but far from everything he says is wrong either.

Fauci was, in fact, playing politics and it appears that he privately did not believe in at least some of the politically imposed Covid-related mandates that he publically supported.  There appears to be some evidence to indicate that he may have been actively influencing the steering of the investigation of the Covid-2 origin. The Anderson email suggesting lab involvement, the undisclosed Fauci-Anderson conversation, and Anderson's subsequent 180-degree turn in Nature, and the $2 million NIH grant given to him shortly after the article are all things that should raise everyone's eyebrows. Neither The Lancet nor Nature should have published such opinion pieces, and should at least allowed rebuttals. But that pales with the unprecedented lockdowns that may have changed the course of history.

I am hoping that this will be looked at, as part of the US and EU investigation, as well as the WHO's role in adamantly supporting China's position and promoting its methods of containment. I also hope that this will not be swept under the rug, because if there are irregularities, they must be addressed at a structural level so that it doesn't happen again.

There are also real questions about the mRNA vaccines and I am glad to see that the CDC is holding an emergency meeting to address some of them. An Oxford study claimed that the mRNA vaccines have similar clotting effects to those identified in the AZ and J&J populations.

I don't subscribe to some the doom and gloom scenarios presented in some of the posts above, but the process and "the science" have been politicized enough to raise reasonable doubts and to merit an open discussion. Because the questions are real and must be addressed, not suppressed.

Allowing social media to delete such discussions, and allowing politicians and the media to cancel scientists, or bully science journals to publish, or refuse to consider, or retract politically unpopular research, is just wrong and it must be stopped.

Well stated.   Al's remark had me thinking similarly but I wasn't willing to invest much thought into countering what looked to me as thoughtless snark.  But I'm thankful you did.

If you backtrack a few posts, it seems YT has removed many of Bret Weinstein's videos for "TOS violations" .  That whole channel probably will be deleted by YT by the powers that be .... but ... for the time anyway ...an alternate video platform, Odysee, has all prev. videos ghosted from YT:

Yeah, this censorship by the private companies that today own and control the largest public forums in history is dangerous to society and democracy.

As these monopolies have become aligned with a specific political ideology, they are acting as surrogates for the state in exercising media control and political censorship. Germany's National Socialists successfully used and rewarded private businesses in a similar fashion and Russia and China employ the same scheme today, since abandoning the command economy model.

The censorship and ideological propaganda already had a profound effect in destabilizing Western societies and making acceptable public policies unimaginable a decade ago.

Abstract

Background: COVID-19 vaccines have had expedited reviews without sufficient safety data. We wanted to compare risks and benefits. Method: We calculated the number needed to vaccinate (NNTV) from a large Israeli field study to prevent one death. We accessed the Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR) database of the European Medicines Agency and of the Dutch National Register (lareb.nl) to extract the number of cases reporting severe side effects and the number of cases with fatal side effects. Result: The NNTV is between 200–700 to prevent one case of COVID-19 for the mRNA vaccine marketed by Pfizer, while the NNTV to prevent one death is between 9000 and 50,000 (95% confidence interval), with 16,000 as a point estimate. The number of cases experiencing adverse reactions has been reported to be 700 per 100,000 vaccinations. Currently, we see 16 serious side effects per 100,000 vaccinations, and the number of fatal side effects is at 4.11/100,000 vaccinations. For three deaths prevented by vaccination we have to accept two inflicted by vaccination. Conclusions: This lack of clear benefit should cause governments to rethink their vaccination policy.

Interesting thanks.

I didn't read the actual study, but wonder if the low relative benefit of the mRNA vaccines is partially due to comparing total population to vaccinated population, which the latter still comprised of predominantly older folks, with a significantly higher number of comorbidities?

I just saw a Mallen Baker video that provides a nice and accurate, to my knowledge, overview of the mRNA vaccines and their development:

How science is funded ....

Thanks for the video. The topic is even more important now that Covid has dramatically increased the politicization of science by the Left.

This first manifested in a significant way back in 2019, when James Watson was cancelled and stripped of his Nobel Prize for stating the fact that IQ varies among large groups, as it does among individuals.

It's a terrible trend and it is tremendously detrimental to scientific research and progress.

I will continue to report on this generic issue (vaccine risks) and specific issue (covid vaccine risks) because THIS group -- CRS -- who are here because they are pre-committed to their personal health via myriad practices including CR, optimal nutrition (supplements as needed), regular exercise, regular/routinized sleep (and non accumulation of sleep debt), regular blood and panel-work and physician checkups, and biometric tracking ... all that stated and ABSORBED by the reader!! ....

I was hoping that I would get a more powerful rebuttal 😉 

So let me steelman a bit .... have a look at the wiki entry for MDPI  [MDPI or Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute is a publisher of open access scientific journals, like Vaccines.]. Specifically, the Controversies section: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MDPI#Controversies

But that criticism is valuable .... and how major journal pubs (Science, Nature) dropped the ball (numerous times) should also be kept in mind. E.g, this MAJOR covid-related eff-up from The Lancet (2020):

"For three deaths prevented by vaccination we have to accept two inflicted by vaccination."

OK, this is a lame rebuttal too, but come on man, just right off the bat the above statement seems ludicrous.  In my county with population of 525,000 it has been reported that "98.1% of adults in the county have been vaccinated" and yet I have not heard of anyone dropping dead from the vaccine - is it supposed to be some big conspiracy coverup?  Pretty much every adult I interact with has been vaccinated and all of my family members, my wife, son, and myself, don't know of a single person that had any serious side effects.  They now screen out people with certain allergies and they also make you sit there for 15 minutes after getting the vaccine to verify you are fine before you can leave.

I think you have to take the data in VAERS with a grain of salt.  You give 136 million Americans a shot, even with placebo, and especially when you are initially focused on the most vulnerable, the elderly or people with comorbidities, and you should expect a certain number of them to die within a week, even more within a month, and a whole lot within 6 months to a year.

Without the vaccines, everyone is likely to get covid-19, just look at the stats in the UK right now (which by the way, just spiked to 20,000 new infections per day) largely its the unvaccinated that are getting sick and spreading it.  Deaths are still quite low in the UK at just 23 a day, but are 15 people a day dying there from vaccinations?  NO.  That flawed conclusion from the study you posted is absurd.

See: Selected Adverse Events Reported after COVID-19 Vaccination

What you need to know

  • COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
  • Millions of people in the United States have received COVID-19 vaccines under the most intense safety monitoring in U.S. history.
  • CDC recommends everyone ages 12 and older get vaccinated as soon as possible to help protect against COVID-19 and the related, potentially severe complications that can occur.
  • CDC, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and other federal agencies monitoring the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Adverse events described on this page have been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)external icon.
  • VAERS accepts reports of any adverse event following vaccination.
  • Reports of adverse events to VAERS following vaccination, including deaths, do not necessarily mean that a vaccine caused a health problem.
 

Serious adverse events after COVID-19 vaccination are rare but may occur.

 

For public awareness and in the interest of transparency, CDC is providing timely updates on the following serious adverse events of interest:

  • Anaphylaxis after COVID-19 vaccination is rare and has occurred in approximately 2 to 5 people per million vaccinated in the United States. Severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, can occur after any vaccination. If this occurs, vaccination providers can effectively and immediately treat the reaction. Learn more about COVID-19 vaccines and allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis.
  • Thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) after Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen (J&J/Janssen) COVID-19 vaccination is rare. As of June 21, 2021, more than 12 million doses of the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine have been given in the United States. CDC and FDA identified 36 confirmed reports of people who got the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine and later developed TTS. Women younger than 50 years old especially should be aware of the rare but increased risk of this adverse event. There are other COVID-19 vaccine options available for which this risk has not been seen. Learn more about J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine and TTS.
    • To date, one confirmed case of TTS following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination (Moderna) has been reported to VAERS after more than 306 million doses of mRNA COVID-19 vaccinesadministered in the United States. Based on available data, there is not an increased risk for TTS after mRNA COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Myocarditis and pericarditis after COVID-19 vaccination are rare. As of June 21, 2021, VAERS has received 616 reports of myocarditis or pericarditis among people ages 30 and younger who received COVID-19 vaccine. Most cases have been reported after mRNA COVID-19 vaccination (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), particularly in male adolescents and young adults. Through follow-up, including medical record reviews, CDC and FDA have confirmed 393 reports of myocarditis or pericarditis. CDC and its partners are investigating these reports to assess whether there is a relationship to COVID-19 vaccination. Learn more about COVID-19 vaccines and myocarditis.
  • Reports of death after COVID-19 vaccination are rare. More than 318 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through June 21, 2021. During this time, VAERS received 5,479 reports of death (0.0017%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine. FDA requires healthcare providers to report any death after COVID-19 vaccination to VAERS, even if it’s unclear whether the vaccine was the cause. Reports of adverse events to VAERS following vaccination, including deaths, do not necessarily mean that a vaccine caused a health problem. A review of available clinical information, including death certificates, autopsy, and medical records, has not established a causal link to COVID-19 vaccines. However, recent reports indicate a plausible causal relationship between the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine and TTS, a rare and serious adverse event—blood clots with low platelets—which has caused deaths.

Btw, vaccines are intended to prevent illlness and hospitalizations,  not just deaths.
