Excellent review of this serious issue. During my private Ophthalmology practice years, I was around when the "shingles" vaxxx appeared (around 2006) and marketed like crazy. Following the intro of that wonderful new poison, I had at least 6 cases of Trigeminal H. Zoster (only 1 or 2 seen during the preceding 20+ years). I have come to the conclusion that there are NO safe vaxxx. TPTB know this, but have thoroughly taken over the narrative stream and created State-mandated (and, enforced!) vaxxx schemes. Talk about the best recurring revenue stream ever! ...And. no liability for the criminals involved. How can this ever be corrected???

I never heard of shingles until the shingles vax was marketed. My mother, who died at age 92 eight years ago, loved to talk about people's ailments - hers, relatives', her friends', random people's she talked to in the grocery store - and never once mentioned shingles.

It seems that many people realize we need a coordinated resistance energy directed at the power centers of this country to stop the sickness. So many people are compromised within the borg, and thus want the status quo. This good doctor is raising awareness of just how bad things are within the medical establishment. Things are not what they appear to be on the surface. We have thousands of disparate voices. How can we get together into a unified resistance movement?

It's important to be connected to some like-minds at least if not one big "movement". It will eventuate but it starts in small numbers. We don't have the power of the media but we can spread information far and wide now with the internet. We need to be talking about this to people who are blind to it, or passing this article and articles like this, to them. It's the silence that allows it to continue. And as individuals, just don't use their products - find alternatives. My health has been extraordinary because of this and understanding my own body signals. We need to get that skill back.

Thanks for weighing in on this important topic. As you mentioned, it's like a higher power is looking out for us because it's so rare, so easily related to the jabs and on such a high profile celebrity to boot. I hope this issue creates a lot of noise and isn't just swept away under the carpet.

Few grammatical mistakes throughout this article I noticed. Just either small spelling mistakes or autocorrect errors.

You'll probably find them all on a second edit and read through.

I have been waiting for fact checkers to comment on this "misinformation" and apparently this link is only been up for 48minutes.

Personally I think their argument is weak at best. They say there is no evidence of it being connected to the vaccine.

But maybe rebutting this type of claim could be useful?

They say there is no provable association between the vaccine and his condition... firstly, why are we having to prove an association, shouldn't it be assumed to be until proven otherwise? Given the whole experimental no long term safety data thing going on and a known association as per the documented side effects in the manufacturers fine print? Their logic is so backwards. It's purposely misleading.

Most fact-checkers just aren't serious people when you look them up, and that's precisely why they're typically underemployed/underpaid. Looks like Jeff Cercone--the Politifact guy from the link you shared--went from a full-time job as content editor to working for Politifact as a contractor.

He's talking about Grammarly a free to preminum app that does grammar, spelling, etc, works better than Microsoft's junk on your computer. And will let you dismiss or add a word. Because there are times Don't works better than Doesn't. Headlines are the worse for being wrong.

And it was supposed to have been proof read by a 'proffessional'. When did I have, become I got?

In the Pollitifact article it states the following which MY EXPERTS say is MISINFORMATION : “That's because of the strength of the U.S. vaccine surveillance system, which (Dr William) Schaffner called "probably the best in the world."

"There are no data from the surveillance systems that would indicate that the vaccines are out there provoking shingles," Schaffner said. “

FALSE meter on my end reads off the chart on his comment!!!!!

The surveillance system is off the charts, screaming loudly and the narrative turns a blind eye (I guess the one affected by RHS) or deaf ear (again, tinnitus anyone) to the warnings.

He's lightly talented and running on his looks, to be sure. But that's not the point here. We are all hoping that having a very high profile celebrity getting an extremely rare and hard-to-hide condition might create doubt and/or convince quite a few more people that the vaccines are not so safe.

But a large percentage of the public already knows. Recently the Daily Mail ran an article about "Sudden Adult Death Syndrome". They allowed more or less unmoderated comments, and those that were talking or hinting about it being connected to the "vaccines" were getting hundreds of upvotes and very few downvotes.

To me, it looks like they try every time to hide the truth by engineering an even bigger crisis; after the COVID, they came up with the Ukraine stuff, and when that lost traction, it was Roe v. Wade, then Hunger Games, banana pox (none of which really worked).... What else is left? WW3 with either Russia, either China... and after that, there would probably be the aliens attacking us.

Meanwhile, people in EU will die of cold this winter, likely of hunger too... if we survive until then - that is.

Doctor, regarding the medical blindness concept. Would development of celiac be linked to COVID vaccines? I have heard of a few people developing this disorder post COVID.

These vaccines are remarkably effective for creating autoimmunity (to the point I often wonder if the spike protein was designed for this purpose). I have heard of a wide range of autoimmune conditions developing from vaccination and as best as I can tell between 20-33% of patients seeing rheumatologists (this is what I observed, what one study found and what another doctor who spoke on record observed) develop new autoimmune conditions or an exacerbation of a preexisting rheumatologic condition following covid vaccination. However, that all said, I have not specifically heard of this happening with celiac disease, but this is most likely due to there being a lot of autoimmune diseases and my sample size being relatively small.

I didn't. I noticed it in the fact checker article I shared earlier then the doc mentioned it also. I wonder how significantly this has impacted him?

These illnesses are not just on or off but a whole scale of severity exists. Eg. Some can have mild, moderate or severe cases. I can tell he doesn't have severe symptoms because he is still able to get out of bed. But these types of illnesses, even mild cases are frustrating to say the least.

January 2021 my daughter was seven months pregnant and worked in the medical field in a blue state... She said all her medical friends told her it was safe and effective and she myst take the Covid vaccine for protection from COVID.

Two months later she delivered her daughter and developed severe Bell’s palsy and almost a year and a half later her one eye is still drooping but of course no connection was made between the deathVAX and Bell’s palsy....

She has since gone on to have the booster after having the second shot of course... The amount of mass psychosis is hard for this mother to take and now that she has a 15-month-old I’m so fearful that that baby will be next in line for the deathVAX

If King Faucet has his way you will mask at home, and get 5 jabs. They are looking to add it to the routine child vaccines, even if the FDA hasn't approved it. Gulliane Barre is on the rise, whether from the Jabs, or the fact they pushed Flu shots with it, as that is a Flu shot issue usually. I worry about the Autoimmune groups, there are 100 known ones, more likely higher. Then you have the previous vaccine injured, granddaughter nearly died from Generation 8 Gardasil, still suffers from RA and Fibromyalgia. Needless to say even her Liberal parents refused the jabs, as did she and her brother. They just got extra cautious.

As far as Shingles, isn’t it as simple as taking Valtrex to stop it? I had Shingles about 8 years ago. I was able to get to my Dermatologist within the few first days of the rash appearing and only suffered a day or so of nerve pain while sleeping. Valtrex was prescribed and the nerve pain was gone quickly.

Wouldn’t it be much less costly than two Shingles jabs? But of course, its all about profits.

There are a lot of ways to treat shingles (frequency specific microcurrent seems to work the best), although the conventional pharmaceutical treatments do not always work. That all said, the preference is to almost always go with an immunization campaign rather than a generic medicine because that makes a lot more money.

I've had shingles twice. Despite taking Valtrex the first time within days, it didn't stop the post herpetic neuralgia which lasted for months. The second outbreak was a lot milder.

Thank you for this thoughtful article. I too had EBV and lyme in my past. They were both reactivated by immune suppression of the vaccine. I am immune deficient and also reactivated shingles.

Cranial nerves were likely involved in severe migraines. Occipital nerve inflammation also, but no paralysis. I should add that celebrex and colchicine did the most to work on head issues so I am assuming inflammation was a major issue. Inflammation of the occipital nerve could be felt.

That was excellent and helpful. While we don't want to see anyone injured, I agree celebrities bring a level of awareness to the subject that otherwise wouldn't happen. I appreciate your weighing in. The crooked smiles and the increase in shingles; these are such important dots to connect. My position is zero vaccines now - which may be an over reaction - but I've no trust in the medical establishment (recognizing there are many good people, but they've been duped too) and lots of trust in our own bodies ability to heal.

I agree that the doctors are under pressure. More now than ever. I avoid them at this point, but even before the COVID ordeal was spoken of, I felt pressured from my ob-gyn to be sure my son's had the Gardasil shot! I'd always refuse. Every year she would ask again...same thing. Adding...at least do it for the sake of your future dtrs-in-law. She tolerated me...even my avoiding mammograms once I became more educated about them. I mentioned going for thermography and noting positive changes with tweaks I was making and feedback from thermographer. She looked perplexed, yet would say how one of her pt.s who refused mammograms had a radiologist as a husband. My MD shook her head stating "I can't imagine how he can deal with her refusing!". To add to that, my thermographer told me that she had quite a few clients who were radiology tech.s! They refused mammograms! And 1 more thing on the gardasil shot...when I took my son for his first peds. Appt when they began offering it to 12 year old males and I declined, she pressured me nonstop. She handed me "literature" to back up her stance....It didn't...it was the leaflet from the drug co.! Then when I took him for his last appt at that office at age 17(different Dr. in the practice) the pressure ensued. This MD took it so far as to tell me right in front of my son that many would say I was being a bad parent making that decision, all the while urging to have him take the shot! That was our last visit there. After that my whole family had the same wonderful internist. She abruptly retired early at the end of 2019...I just know, through my experiences with her, that she had enough. Sorry so long. I got rolling!

At my annual physical 18 months ago, my GP asked if I wanted the singles vaccine. I asked how long it had been out. IIRC, he said about 6 months.

This was such an impressive essay on vaccinations and how the pharmaceutical industry has led the charge for profits in the name of health. Infectious diseases and cancers being the unintended consequences of vaccination and yet never studied or linked. Pharmaceuticals entering the market to cater for the unusual diseases emerging after vaccination programmes. Profit after harm and over everything. Doctors see these trends and yet are part of the machinery that churns out our health. And even injured people like Bieber cover up the crime. Thankyou for speaking out.

As far as I can tell, 95 percent of U.S. doctors would never even consider ANY reason to be "hesitant" about ordering patients to get A, B, C ... Z vaccines. This is the problem. They all take their guidance from the NIH/CDC/Big Pharma and even now the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. They are all on the same team when it comes to vaccines.

Scariest thing I’ve seen today. Especially the normalization of all the crooked smiles and asymmetrical faces. 6 of my grandkids will likely get the COVID vaccine as time goes by. Sadly, my firstborn thinks I’m a crazy conspiracy theorist and pretty much discounts anything I say that deviates from their own belief system.

Wish I’d known years ago what I’ve come to learn now. I’d never have vaxxed any of my own children with the “normal” childhood ones of their youth. Praying for all the little ones laid upon the altar in sacrifice to a system that cares not for their actual well-being.
