FDA Should Suspend COVID-19 “Vaccine” EUA Licensing & Approval

Japan has wisely pulled distribution of 1.6 million vials of the Moderna COVID injection after a visible “contaminant” was observed in numerous vials at several distribution sites.  The “contaminant” was then determined to have magnetic properties. (See https://www.theepochtimes.com/moderna-vaccine-production-continues-in-spain-amid-contamination-probe-ema_3968626.html) Why would they assume the substance is a contaminant?  It could be an INGREDIENT that has precipitated […]

The Choice Is Ours

Twenty months into the Covid-19 “pandemic” we are still having heated debates within the medical community, on the streets of American towns and cities, and in legislative halls about Covid mitigation strategies. The disease like HIV-Aids has become politicized and the agenda and narrative are overshadowing evidence and logic. Conclusions regarding mitigation strategy, masks, vaccines, […]

Truth and Facts Will Win The Day—Eventually

There is a common thread that runs through the thinking of liberals when it comes to issues as disparate as sexual harassment and Covid vaccinations. Neither deductive nor inductive constructs in logic underpin their arguments. The ideas of “due process” and the “scientific method” require a discipline in thinking and subsequent actions based on those principles […]

People and Power/Sameness or Liberty

When I ask liberal progressives to point to one single policy or law that they have advocated for in the past 10 years that has made the United States stronger , better, and made life more fulfilling—they prefer the word “easier” but there is a big difference, for our citizens they immediately point to the […]

Workers Are People, Not Mice

The world is a bit hysterical these days, there is a palatable fear about the virus and public health. But we must be careful to prevent fear from destroying freedom. People should not be forced into medical decisions they are not comfortable with—especially in an experimental setting. The Declaration of Independence states “…all Men are […]

What is Real?

I’d like to take a deep breath today and move away from discussions of masks, and vaccines, and CRT, and capital markets and reflect for a moment about how we asses data. When I was on the USS Virginia in 1976 we were the platform for the development of the Navy Tactical Data System and […]

And the Beat Goes On

Several weeks ago, I wrote a series of 4 articles trying to explain why good people in the scientific community looked at the same data and came to very different conclusions. We discussed “risk tolerance transference”, “herd dynamics”, and finally several forms of bias including outcome and hindsight bias. Within the past 2 days, two […]

Tell the Truth — Please

Inevitably, when talking to a progressive the term “science” comes up. The word is used in such a way as to end a discussion. The implied argument is this: We all believe in science, and if science is on my side of the argument, my argument should win the day—-end of discussion. Anyone making such […]

IN GOD WE TRUST

This will be my third and hopefully final article that explores the variation of opinion in the scientific community regarding the risk and mitigation strategy that has surrounded the politicized Covid-19 pandemic. In my 1st article I discussed “group think” and showed how the media and “experts” created a herd mentality that marginalized credible scientific […]

Risk

Last week I received an e-mail from a childhood friend that reminded me of a book I had read in College for my economics professor Bulweir Singh. It was written in 1841 by Charles MacKay and is entitled EXTRAORDINARY POPULAR DELUSIONS AND THE MADNESS OF CROWDS. In 1998—long after I had graduated from College Peter […]

Double Think = Group Think

During the past 14 months, two vastly different opinions have emerged within the scientific community about the severity, and mitigation strategy surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. Both sides recognize that the Covid-19 virus can be a deadly and clinically devastating disease. One in three Americans know somebody who has died from the disease yet 91% have […]
