VAERS is the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. It opened in 1990, but would accept reports on events from as much as 10 years prior.

This graph is featured at
  • All non-COVID vaccines for 30+ years: The gray bars on the graph represent the total numbers of VAERS reports for ALL non-COVID vaccines from 1990+ through July 23, 2021.
  • COVID vaccines for 8 months: The red bar represents all the VAERS reports for the COVID-19 vaccines that got emergency approval for use in the USA from mid-December 2021 through July 23, 2021.

I went to the VAERS website and attempted to reproduce the results on the bar graph. Despite the fact that the site says the end dates are still July 23, I got different numbers. However, the point the graph is making remains the same – i.e., the experimental COVID vaccines are far more dangerous than any FDA approved vaccine. Here are my results.

I also tried to suss out what the numbers mean, given the huge number of COVID vaccinations that have occurred in this eight month period. This was complicated by the fact that VAERS is voluntary and the level of reporting is low, so the actual numbers are certainly higher. In addition, there’s no way of telling how many total doses of any vaccine was administered. All they give is a percentage of the total 1,146,536 reports they have recorded. Still, the percentages are telling, especially when compared with other vaccines. It should be noted that all the COVID vaccines are lumped together, while vaccines for other diseases often list various versions, some of which are much safer than others.

You can look at this stuff yourself by going to the VAERS link below, click “Search CDC WONDER”, choose “AGREE.” Then you can choose the “Request Form” tab on the top left. I chose “Group results by Event Category” and by “Vaccine.

BORDER: No other nation in the world has open borders [4:45].

CHILD SACRIFICE: Video warning: content may be difficult for some viewers [2:32] – Luke Lancaster writes at, “When atheists want to discredit God and the Bible, one of their whipping boys is Jephthah in the Old Testament. They see Jephthah in Judges 11 offering his only daughter to God as a sacrifice, and they object that his action is not condemned as evil in God’s Word. …

Judges 11 is not about God signing off on child sacrifice. … [Jephthah] made a stupid vow to God that ended up contradicting God’s law delivered to Moses. He was so sure about what would come out of his house—sure in the way that only God can ever be sure—that he thought he could impose a deal on God, notwithstanding the risk of transgressing God’s own laws in doing so. And then, even worse, when Jephthah saw the folly of his bargain, not only did he not repent of making such a foolish vow and beg for God’s forgiveness, but he doubled down and did the thing God had unequivocally condemned!”

EXORCISM: The building at 72 Ransom Street NE in Grand Rapids, Michigan, was originally constructed in the 19th century as a Jewish synagogue; later, it was used as a Greek Orthodox church. Sadly, it became the largest abortion facility in western Michigan. Local pro-life activists worked and prayed for many years to shut it down.

After eight years and an estimated 20,000 abortions, pro-lifers convinced the owner of the building to sell it to them. They immediately evicted the abortion practice and turned the building into a pro-life pregnancy resource center.

According to the new owners, a day or two after taking control of the building, a small group of Christian pro-life leaders gathered in the building to pray. They chose to specifically pray by the back-alley entrance that had been used by the abortionist to enter and exit the building. They held hands in a circle and prayed that God would cleanse the space of evil.

Suddenly, at the very moment a local pastor in their group concluded their prayer with “Amen,” the back-alley door swung open on its own and a rush of air went through the room and out the door. A few seconds later, a cool breeze began blowing in from the open door.

The group quietly walked back to the front of the building. While meditating on what they had just witnessed, a neighbor stopped by and asked what they had done with the statue of a demon that had been on the roof. The pro-life group had never seen such a statue and hadn’t removed anything, yet the woman insisted she had seen it on top of the building for some time, but that it was now gone.

One of the pro-life leaders present later described the events as “a spiritual transfer of ownership.” The building is now home to LIFE International, a pro-life organization dedicated to creating pro-life materials and training pro-life leaders around the world.

KINDNESS: When a juvenile orca whale was discovered beached on Prince of Wales Island, people gathered to keep it hydrated until high tide. The young whale survived and has rejoined its pod.

LYING WITH STATISTICS: It is true that “Extreme temperatures kill 5 million people a year.” It is also true that “heat-related deaths are rising.” It is NOT TRUE that heat kills 5 million people a year.

Table 1 in the study published at the Lancet (link below) reports the annual average excess deaths due to non-optimal temperatures for 2000–2019 equaled 5,083,173. Of these, 4,594,098 were cold-related deaths vs. 489,075 that were heat-related deaths.

For those Science Science Science Democrats who can’t pay attention to little things like facts, that means that extreme cold killed ten times as many people as extreme heat did.

As for the change over the twenty years covered, the excess cold-related excess deaths declined at a faster rate than heat-related deaths rose. Planet Moron calculated that, because of the slight warming of our climate, 150,000 people did NOT die of cold.

VAX TAX: Ian Millhiser, a senior correspondent for the left-wing website Vox and senior policy analyst for Center for American Progress, tweeted: “Congress should increase the income tax rate on taxpayers who are unvaccinated, and who have no legitimate religious or medical reason to be unvaccinated, to 99 percent.

Or maybe you could herd us all into an internment camp with infected illegals. That’ll teach us!

Science, Science, Science

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) says the CDC’s recent “masks on again” guidance is based on an unpublished study that not only evaluated the efficacy of a COVID-19 vaccine that’s “not approved in America”, but also failed peer review.

Archives of the unpublished study’s page on Research Square show that from July 9 through July 26, it was marked “Reject after peer review.” On July 27, not long after the CDC issues it’s “masks on again” guidance, the July 9 note had been changed to read “Revise.”

The CDC’s July 27, 2021 “fully vaccinated guidance” web page (link below) appears to confirm that the “masks on again” guidance was based on this unpublished, rejected then not rejected study about vaccines not approved in America. In one place, it says the new guidance is based on “new evidence on the B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant currently circulating in the United States.” Later, it refers to unpublished data” from studies done in India “with vaccines not authorized for use in the United States.”

But on the CDC’s July 27, 2021 “fully vaccinated people” page (link below), the lead paragraph strongly suggests the “masks on guidance” is not justified by existing data. “Studies published since the last update that demonstrate currently authorized mRNA vaccines provide protection against variants of concern, including the Delta strain that is now predominant in the United States. Vaccine effectiveness against hospitalization and death is high for all current SARS-CoV-2 variants; emerging data suggest lower effectiveness against confirmed infection and symptomatic disease caused by the Beta, Gamma, and Delta variants compared with the ancestral strain and the Alpha variant.

Nate Silver did a deep dive into what the CDC report on the Provincetown outbreak says. Some are using it to justify the new mask mandate. Mainly, Silver notes that the sample size was both tiny (~200) and also non-diverse (mostly affluent middle-aged gay men). IOW, the data simply isn’t meaningful beyond that single event.

Meanwhile, illegals apprehended by border officers who test positive are being handed over the Catholic Charities of The Rio Grande Valley, which puts them up in hotels in La Joya and McAllen, Texas. The situation came to light after a concerned citizen reported to a police officer that she saw mask-less members of a family coughing and sneezing at a Whataburger location. Apparently, it was only after the affected communities complained that the agency hired a security agent to keep the infected illegals inside their hotel rooms.

And in the Capitol, Speaker Pelosi has directed police to arrest anyone who isn’t wearing a mask, regardless of vaccination status.

CLICK [:52] for a palate cleansing rant.

FAKEBOOK: The highly trained epidemiologists in the Facebook Fact Check Farm put a “Missing Context” warning on this cartoon. (Yes, they fact checked a cartoon.)

It linked to an article by Australian Associated Press criticizing internet memes that cast doubt on the vaccines. It said, “Claim vaccines won’t stop COVID spread ignores key facts.

Here are two key facts the Fact Checkers and Australian Associated Press ignored. One, the CDC has told everyone to go back to wearing masks. Two, Sydney, Australia, is back on TOTAL lock down for everyone, regardless of vaccine status.

Meanwhile, the EU issued a report demanding the government “build up effective partnerships with social media influencers” to stop all right-wing jokes, satire, memes, and parodies, because they’re JUST NOT FUNNY ANYMORE. They actually referred to “far-right extremists”, but you and I all know what they mean are people like us.

FAUXTUS: There’s a lot of buzz about Slow Joe claiming he once drove an 18-wheeler. I listened to the clip, but what I heard him say is that he wanted to … like when he was a boy. You can listen for yourself:

MASK MANDATES: The Republican governors of Arizona, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Texas, are all flipping the bird at the CDC’s latest mask mandate.

Surprisingly, so is Democrat Gretchen “Jackboot” Whitmer. I’m guessing her obstinance likely has less to do with respecting individual freedoms than with the giant smack down she got from the state Supreme Court and the GOP-led legislature, plus the threat of being recalled like California’s Gov. Newsom.

MICHIGAN: This guy is really doing his constituents proud, neh? [2:21] – In addition to his drunk driving etc. legal problems, he’s also got a little something to answer for in his campaign spending report.

Namely, $221 he spent at a strip club, which he labeled “office expense.” He also blew through more than $6,400 from his campaign account on meals for meetings over the first 7 months of 2021. That includes one dinner meeting that cost nearly $700.

Simon Schuster, executive director of the nonprofit Michigan Campaign Finance Network, said Michigan’s elected officials “often use campaign funds to wine, dine and entertain themselves … under the guise of conducting business.

MORONS: Remember all the times that Fancy Nancy sneered at Trump for his lack of civility? It seems like she needs to take the plank out of her own eye before pointing out the specks in anyone else’s. On Wednesday, when asked about McCarthy’s criticism of the latest mask mandate (graphic), she reportedly said, “He is such a moron.”

CLICK [:14] if you want to listen. A while later, she spent 34 seconds saying “science, science, science” before claiming what she said that McCarthy’s position “is not wise.” CLICK [:34] to hear that one.

I admit that her comment while getting into her limo is very hard to hear; however, it sounds a heckuva lot more like “He is such a moron” than like “He is not wise.” So, civil, Nancy! Also, FYI: Saying “science” over and over doesn’t mean your position is based on actual science science. Just sayin’.

NEW YORK CITY: The New York Post reports, “The de Blasio-era rise in violence did not impact all areas of Gotham equally. Not even close.” And the voting patterns in the recent Democratic mayoral primary not only shows it, but also gives the lie to the claim by white liberals like Garcia who claim to care about black lives. [N.b., “Garcia” is the last name of her ex-husband; her natal name was McIver.

Inhabitants of lower-income, high-crime, mostly minority neighborhoods turned out in huge numbers for the law-and-order candidate and former cop of color, Eric Adams. Meanwhile, the safest and whitest neighborhoods voted for lily white Kathryn Garcia and her wishy-washy “crime-fighting” strategy.

The Atlantic has a good article about it which is now called “Progressive Denial Won’t Stop Violent Crime.” But on the tab one can see that the original title was “Why the Crime Wave is a Disaster for Democrats.”

PRIDE FLAGS: There’s another new pride flag! This one seeks to be the Most Inclusive Ever (and ugliest to date) by adding the red umbrella symbol to celebrate sex workers. But it’s not cuz, you know, it doesn’t include the inter-gender circle in the white triangle, which is just so, you know, like, hurtful and demeaning. Or something.

PSA: Watch this one [5:21].

GRAPHIC: science

SCIENCE: Or as Nancy Pelosi would say, “Science. Science. Science.” Cuz that’s how you prove something is really science-y … by saying it a lot. Or something.

Due to the limitations of time, budget, and the inability to access necessary government databases, they could only analyze the first four. IOW, the total number of illegal ballots cast in Wisconsin was certainly even higher.

I saw this posted on Facebook by Byron Heath and just had to share it with all y’all.

This realization I had about Simone Biles is gonna make some people mad, but oh well.

Yesterday I was excited to show my daughters Kerri Strug’s famous one-leg vault. It was a defining Olympic moment that I watched live as a kid, and my girls watched raptly as Strug fell, and then limped back to leap again.

But for some reason I wasn’t as inspired watching it this time. In fact, I felt a little sick. Maybe being a father and teacher has made me soft, but all I could see was how Kerri Strug looked at her coach, Bela Karolyi, with pleading, terrified eyes, while he shouted back “You can do it!” over and over again.

My daughters didn’t cheer when Strug landed her second vault. Instead they frowned in concern as she collapsed in agony and frantic tears.

“Why did she jump again if she was hurt?” one of my girls asked. I made some inane reply about the heart of a champion or Olympic spirit, but in the back of my mind a thought was festering:

*She shouldn’t have jumped again*

The more the thought echoed, the stronger my realization became. Coach Karolyi should have gotten his visibly injured athlete medical help immediately! Now that I have two young daughters in gymnastics, I expect their safety to be the coach’s number one priority. Instead, Bela Karolyi told Strug to vault again. And he got what he wanted; a gold medal that was more important to him than his athlete’s health.

I’m sure people will say “Kerri Strug was a competitor–she WANTED to push through the injury.”

That’s probably true. But since the last Olympics we’ve also learned these athletes were put into positions where they could be systematically abused both emotionally and physically, all while being inundated with “win at all costs” messaging. A teenager under those conditions should have been protected, and told “No medal is worth the risk of permanent injury.” In fact, we now know that Strug’s vault wasn’t even necessary to clinch the gold; the U.S. already had an insurmountable lead. Nevertheless, Bela Karolyi told her to vault again according to his own recounting of their conversation:

“I can’t feel my leg,” Strug told Karolyi.

“We got to go one more time,” Karolyi said. “Shake it out.”

“Do I have to do this again?” Strug asked.

“Can you, can you?” Karolyi wanted to know.

“I don’t know yet,” said Strug. “I will do it. I will, I will.”

The injury forced Strug’s retirement at 18 years old. Dominique Moceanu, a generational talent, also retired from injuries shortly after. They were top gymnasts literally pushed to the breaking point, and then put out to pasture. Coach Karolyi and Larry Nassar (the serial sexual abuser) continued their long careers, while the athletes were treated as a disposable resource.

Today Simone Biles–the greatest gymnast of all time–chose to step back from the competition, citing concerns for mental and physical health. I’ve already seen comments and posts about how Biles “failed her country”, “quit on us”, or “can’t be the greatest if she can’t handle the pressure.” Those statements are no different than Coach Karolyi telling an injured teen with wide, frightened eyes: “We got to go one more time. Shake it out.”

The subtext here is: “Our gold medal is more important than your well-being.”

Our athletes shouldn’t have to destroy themselves to meet our standards. If giving empathetic, authentic support to our Olympians means we’ll earn less gold medals, I’m happy to make that trade.

Here’s the message I hope we can send to Simone Biles: You are an outstanding athlete, a true role model, and a powerful woman. Nothing will change that. Please don’t sacrifice your emotional or physical well-being for our entertainment or national pride. We are proud of you for being brave enough to compete, and proud of you for having the wisdom to know when to step back. Your choice makes you an even better example to our daughters than you were before. WE’RE STILL ROOTING FOR YOU!

Nancy Pelosi’s Big Fat Lie

Lying Nancy is claiming that the January 6th assault on the Capitol Building was the worst of its kind since the War of 1812.

In 1915, a bomb exploded in the Senate wing, causing extensive damage.

In 1954, five congressmen were wounded on the floor when 4 members of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party opened fire from the visitor area.

In 1971, a bomb exploded in the Senate wing of the Capitol, causing extensive damage but no injuries. The Weather Underground claimed responsibility. Bill Ayers, one of the groups leaders, participated in the Capitol bombing, as well as the bombings of a New York City Police Department headquarters in 1970 and the Pentagon in 1972. Ayers is now celebrated as an education expert. Barack Obama’s political career was launched in his living room.

In 1983, a bomb exploded in the Capitol’s north wing, causing extensive damage but no injuries. Three people were later convicted of this bombing, as well as bombings at Ft. McNair, and the Washington Navy Yard.

In 1998, two Capitol Police officers were killed in the line of duty by an armed assailant who stormed past a U.S. Capitol security checkpoint and made it deep into the building, where he was shot.

In 2018, more than 300 people stormed Capitol Hill to protest the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

In 2020, in late May, tens of thousands of Black Lives Matter supporters laid siege to the White House following the death of career criminal George Floyd. More than 60 Secret Service officers and special agents sustained multiple injuries in three days worth of violent clashes in Lafayette Park and near the White House.

Some demonstrators repeatedly attempted to knock over security barriers and vandalized six Secret Service vehicles. Protesters threw bricks, rocks, bottles, fireworks and other items at officers and some Secret Service personnel were also kicked, punched and exposed to bodily fluids. Sixty Secret Service agents were wounded; 11 needed hospital care. This was the worst attack on the White House since 1812 and it was perpetrated by people the Democrats support and continually apologize for.
