My sister in law was involved in a head on collision by a drunk driver about 18 months ago. A truck crossed the highway at 5 PM and hit her CRV head on. She was 67 and not in good health at all. She had been a smoker for over 50 years and had chronic COPD, hypertension, obese, and various other conditions. She was rushed to the hospital, it was determined she had a stroke, a heart attack, and shattered legs to list a few. Of course, the drunk driver had a few bruises, this was her 4th DWI.

This was during Covid when the hospitals were struggling with financial impacts. It took 3 days for my brother to be notified about the accident since police don’t do that in California, they have too many other things to do. A nurse answered my sister in law’s phone. My sister in law was not expected home since she was visiting family elsewhere.

The hospital workers gave my brother hope that my sister in law had a chance of recovery continuously. She was vented since she could not breathe on her own. This small hope was reinforced after every procedure (brain, heart, kidney). The last procedure they did was to run rods down each of her legs. When there was nothing else to be done the nurse asked my brother whether he would like them to keep her comfortable and let her go peacefully or place her in a long term care facility where they could maintain her on life support. Again, they told my brother there was a small chance she could recover but it would be a long hard recovery. These messages were always delivered by the Nurses or Nurse Practioners. My brother wanted to give his wife that chance even if it was less than 10%. He decided to move her to the long term care facility.

A kind physician called my brother, he asked my brother what he had been told by the hospital staff. He explained to my brother very gently that my sister in law would never get better. She would never recognize her family; she would never communicate; she would never wake up. The state she was in would be permanent. My brother knew the decision he had to make, and he made sure her family understood the situation. This kind physician gave his number to be shared with her family if they had questions. The family members called this busy physician who tenderly told each of them there was no hope. The family was united in the decision to take her off life support. She died within a day peacefully.

The hospital knew the day she arrived she would not survive, they knew the extent of the injuries, my sister in law’s age, and health – she had no chance of survival. I felt anger with the hospital – each department got their procedure in – she was a cash cow. My brother got her hospital bill – it was over a million dollars. My brother received a $100,000 death benefit from the car insurance company – Medicare took all of it and paid the hospital bill. The institutions are about the money not humanity, but I do see the goodness in this kind physician that ended my sweet sister in law’s capture by the medical institution so the family could bury her and move on as best you can when you lose someone you love. There is always a light in the darkness.

Great article. I had a big talk with my MD about COVID jabs. She acknowledged having submitted three VAERS reports for her patients (representing about 1% of her patient load) but when I mentioned 1.3 million total VAERS reports filed, she said they were likely fake reports from “bots”, even though the 1.3 million represented a smaller percentage of vaccinated people than she personally reported in her own practice. Cognitive dissonance runs deep, largely based on the psychological traits outlined in the article.

Thank you for this. I write this with tears in my eyes. My beloved aunt was strong armed into taking the vaccine. She had a history of sarcoidosis but it had been dormant for many years previously. She suffered instant shortness of breath after having it and suffered an instant decrease in her health. She died a few months after. Sudden heart attack with massive clotting and evidence of severe sarcoidosis. She is currently not included on the yellow card (Uk) data.

Excellent examination of the issues. What is perhaps most frightening to me is that the dangerous and deadly "vaccines" are but one more manifestation of an overall "health system" that regularly poisons the American population with toxins in food, water, air, and medications. Many people I think realize that the EPA fails to appropriately regulate toxic chemicals in our environment because it is an government agency captured by corporate interests.

However, fewer people (prior to covid) suspected the same corporate capture and corruption was also true of the FDA, the CDC, the NIAID, and medical regulatory and licensing boards - though their respective "behaviors" during the last several years have clearly proven this to be the case.

Coincidentally, given the wide range of debilitating post-vaccination injuries already apparent - medical professionals of all specializations can expect a robust crop of new patients years into the future to insure their income streams and job security. The source of this vast new pool of patients somehow managing to remain a complete mystery to most physicians.

The Upton Sinclair quote comes to mind: ("It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.")

We must not forget the brave pioneer in this battle - Dr. Paul Thomas - Oregon yanked his med license in 2020

"The apparent impetus for the “emergency” meeting, however, was the publication just days prior of a study showing that compared with his vaccinated patients, those patients who received no vaccines have significantly lower incidence of diagnoses and office visits for a broad range of chronic health conditions — including asthma, allergies, eczema, dermatitis, hives, anemia, eye disorders, ear infections, respiratory infections, other infections, breathing issues, behavioral issues, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Thomas obtained institutional review board approval to use his de-identified patient data for research and publication of the study, which was co-authored by James Lyons-Weiler, Ph.D.

The study population consisted of all patients born into his practice. Titled “Relative Incidence of Office Visits and Cumulative Rates of Billed Diagnoses Along the Axis of Vaccination,” it was published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health on Nov. 22, 2020."

Again, thank you for this - once again, I realize how rare my husband was, a Cornell-trained radiologist, who refused several medicines (Vioxx was one) prescribed to him and who generally preferred older generation medicines. But he was a "failure" by his own sister's reckoning (also in healthcare as a therapist - she's very proud of her investment expertise). He also used to say the big salaries & expensive toys his colleagues liked were compensation for giving up so many normal pleasures (attending a son's scout trip or daughter's dance recital, taking an afternoon off) to serve in their profession. I am grateful to drs like John Mandrola MD, who post their concerns on statins or unlimited ablations online - I've used his points to argue w my drs in past. Lowered my cholesterol by losing 15 lb.

Thank you, Doctor. My daughter is in second year medicine and I copy her with your thoughts regularly. I believe they fortify her soul and her feed her determination to be a (future) agent for change. She faced intense pressure from the med school/ medical complex to submit to taking the C19 vaccines, from her first day of med school. Despite that she had provided them (quantified) proof of innate antibodies to C19 from a previous infection, she was told vaccination was 'mandatory'. Prior to studying medicine she was an RN, so the dismissal of her innate immunity was an abrupt and rude awakening into the world of medicine as you describe it. It cast an immediate shadow over her medical school education and she entered her studies a disillusioned but simultaneously enlightened, skeptic. Her core and long held convictions (do no harm, innate immunity is the best immunity, coercion is not consent) were turned upside down, and now not a day goes by where she says she can "unsee" what she now sees with fresh eyes. I know the entire experience will make her a truly ethical and principled physician one day, but in the meantime, your words help her feel less alone, because as you say, she is surrounded by blind followers of the stats quo who lap up every word they are taught by the medico-pharmaceutical complex as the gospel truth.

Your best work yet. Thank you as it encapsulated for me thirty years of thinking about this issue.

One aspect that you touch upon but don't elaborate upon is the strong desire of clinicians to be helpful. Acknowledging our limited ability to do so is just a bridge too far for most of us. Everything in our being and in our education has misled us as to what it means to be caring.

>>>Doctors have strong psychological motivations to dismiss the possibility of a medical injury occurring

I believe this accounts for much more than financial incentives, because it operates at a deeper emotional level.

To give doctors credit, the majority seem to have fallen under their own spell - the overwhelming majority apparently have taken the vaccines. I think it would be difficult to be a doctor forced or coerced to follow protocols of their employers on the one hand, or fearful of being sued by patients on the other. Perhaps like minded physicians who are aware of the problems can come together and form their own outpatient clinics, urgent cares, or hospitals to escape bad systems.

The Dunning-Kruger effect is interesting. I read somewhere that engineers don't tend to make good jurors for prosecutors. If true, this is presumably because their procedural minds allows them to imagine multiple stories that fit the observations, leading to a much higher standard for "beyond a reasonable doubt" than your average juror.

Thank you for your clear-thinking and compassionate article. I have read your entire series. Required reading for anyone who cares about healthcare and wants to understand the motivations and mindset of American doctors on pharmaceuticals.

Doc, this is going to come across very simplistic but most doctors are part of a top-down compliance-control-cartel. You have put yourself into this system of coercion and rewards. The only way this spell is going to be broken is for doctors to collectively form a new set of alliances that form around helping patients get healthly using multiple healing approaches. Doctors need to not become part of the medical-pharma-media-complex where there is only one approach otherwise you are deemed a heretic. Sure we would all like to be safe from quackery, doctors and clinics who are irresponsible in their use of medicinals, various techniques or various dangerous technologies, but we dont need a top down "Mt Sinai" regulatory system laying down the "5000 commandments" on docs or patients. We really need a revolution and it starts with both patients and doctors demanding this and saying no those who would control us into a tiny corral.

When my father was 75, he was very fit, walked 3-5 miles per day at a really fast pace, trim and healthy. Did not smoke (he quit when he was in his 40s), did not drink (also quit in his 40’s). His only “issues” were an elevated cholesterol, and mild depression. His MD placed him on statins, and antidepressants. Within the year he developed type 2 diabetes, and cognitive decline. Within 5 years he was moved into a nursing home, as the vascular dementia caused by his diabetes was killing tiny portions of his brain, until he could no longer function. He spent the last 5yrs of his life there. I’m convinced it was a result of his statins.

Fast forward to my health-I eat a wholly organic diet and do not consume processed foods. My cholesterol is slightly elevated. About 25years ago I was bullied by my MD and allowed myself to be talked into taking a statin. The muscle cramps I experienced were awful. If the muscles in my legs could cramp so bad, couldn’t my heart also? After all, it is a muscle that never stops working. My MD dismissed my concerns, wanted me to take another brand of statins. I became “pre diabetic”, with a rising A1C each time my blood was drawn, and my triglycerides sky high, gaining weight in spite of following my MDs advice to eat a low fat diet. I quit my MD, quit the statins, quit sugar, dropped 50lbs as a result, lowered my triglycerides, and feel better than I have in 20 years! I no longer see an allopathic MD. I go to an integrative health DO, but only to have my blood panels run. I haven’t been sick in a very long time- quite a feat since I work in a large hospital (a congregation of germs). I was fortunate to receive an exemption from the Covid vax. I have not caught Covid, despite taking care of many symptomatic patients. I sought the care of a physician with the FLCCC. He prescribed IVM (prophylactically) for both my husband and myself. That, along with other supplements, Vit D, etc has kept me healthy. I’m done with allopathic medicine. I’ve seen so many young people now coming to the hospital with “old people” diseases. I tread lightly in asking their vaccination status. One of my patients recently diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer told me she would rather have cancer than Covid, after asking me if the vaccine caused her to get cancer. I told her no one knows, as there was no follow up or testing. Crazy times! We must all advocate for our own health and seek a healer that fits. Hard to do these days. Thanks for your articles! I’ve learned so much!

This was another great read for me, thanks to your humble assessment of what has been going on in your profession. I would like to know why nutrition is overlooked. How many people have difficulties due to a lack of vitamins and minerals? How many diseases and disorders are directly related to a lack of a nutrient? Perhaps this is why people are so religious about vaccines because what is the alternative for them? It takes discipline and knowledge to eat well and most do not know or care about what they eat except for the taste and aroma of a particular fast food product, some bag of snack chips, or sugar-ladened baked goods topped off with a soda. Our food industry is just as corrupt as the rest of the corporations that run our health care system today.
