I find it amazing when a well-educated, high-tech serial entrepreneur and uber-rich liberal like Steve Kirsch stands up to the establishment and challenges the politicized scientific orthodoxy of the day.
Whether what he says is correct, partially right, or just flat-out wrong doesn’t matter. He should be allowed to present his opinion and challenge the views of others.
Unfortunately, we have seen formerly credible institutions become politicized and well-educated, well-credentialed, and well-experienced individuals cowed into accepting “The Science,” or more appropriately, the orthodoxy of the day as promoted by self-serving elites who believe they have the right to dictate our future.
Can I trust the CDC or NIH? No! Can I trust Drs? Fauci and Birx? Hell no! So who can I trust?
Of course, my first thought is that I can trust my personal physician and team of specialists. But, I must ask, to what extent are their advice and treatment recommendations colored by institutional demands by their practice or hospital facility?
For most people, it is not simply a matter of trust but verify, as most cannot read or understand the medical literature.
Steve Kirsch is responding to the World Health Organization’s request for video comments...
Steve Kirsch is an entrepreneur and philanthropist who played a significant role during the pandemic in the medical research field. His views are credible, and he continues to challenge the orthodoxy of the day. Unfortunately, many of his challenges remain unanswered by those who appear to have a reputational stake in being right.

New Covid Boosters Were Released Before Human Testing—But Experts Say They're Still Safe
Experts explain the extensive safety history that supported release of new boosters.
The new round of COVID-19 booster shots, reformulated to target the BA.4 and BA.5 omicron subvariants as well as the original strain of COVID, are the first shots to be distributed prior to human trials.
The bivalent COVID-19 boosters —made by manufactures Moderna and by Pfizer, along with its partner BioNTech— were approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on an expedited basis in order to ensure that they would be released by Labor Day and allow the country to stay one step ahead of of the continually evolving virus and its variants.
Even though the updated boosters were released on an expedited schedule, experts say the shots are safe and that the process parallels a familiar one used to update the seasonal flu vaccine each year. Seasonal flu shots also don't require human clinical trials to be updated and rely upon animal and laboratory testing to develop and evaluate the shot each year.
[OCS: These are not flu shots and to equate or conflate these untested “vaccines” with the long-term data from flu shots is intellectually dishonest. And while flu shots may have life-altering side effects in some individuals, they do not appear to be as frequent or deadly as those from previous COVID-19 vaccine trials.]
And while the new boosters were approved without specific human data on the new formulation, regulators had all the accumulated human trial data from both the original vaccine development and the development of boosters for variants like BA.1 and beta that were never approved,
[OCS: Much of this data, especially from the earlier studies, has been challenged or falsified by later findings. Are the vaccine makers cherry-picking the data.? We will probably never know until it is too late as they high the data behind the “proprietary and confidential” label and censor dissent.]
Regulators also had years of real-world data at their fingertips on the millions of people who have been infected with the virus, including BA.4 and BA.5.
[OCS: Again, is the data scientifically and statistically sound?]
The information in this story is accurate as of press time. However, as the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, it's possible that some data have changed since publication. While Health is trying to keep our stories as up-to-date as possible, we also encourage readers to stay informed on news and recommendations for their own communities by using the CDC, WHO, and their local public health department as resources.
[OCS: Sadly, those are the very politicized information sources that have credibility issues and are the source of provable and contradictory disinformation.] <Source>
Can you believe anything they say?
CDC Director Admits Agency Gave False Information on COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Monitoring
The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has acknowledged publicly for the first time that the agency gave false information about its COVID-19 vaccine safety monitoring.
Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the agency’s director, said in a letter made public on Sept. 12 that the CDC did not analyze certain types of adverse event reports at all in 2021, despite the agency previously saying it started in February 2021. <Source>
Unfortunately, the former credibility of physicians has been destroyed by politics. Most have the same credibility as climate researchers who depend on the government or politicized institutions for employment and project funding.
This is troubling for me personally as I am in the high-risk category with significant co-morbidities. I have had the basic two shots plus the third “booster.” I was part of an antibody test protocol, and antibodies appear to be present. Unfortunately, the data is worthless as the test may have an error rate approaching 20% and was not approved by the FDA.
I am hesitant to take the next shot without more information.
We are so screwed.
