If only they'd been warned......
A tribute to Joel Smalley
We have written before about the laughable double page spread in the Times newspaper on 21 March 2021 (the highlighted article “Academics back ‘bizarre’ claim that jabs may kill” in the bottom right was central to the hacking of Norman’s Wikipedia page):
A pdf of the double-page spread of the article can be found here:
So, according to the Times and its ‘science editor’ Tom Whipple, the Oxford AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccine was 100% effective, and it was bizarre for academics like us to claim that the jabs may kill.
But this double-page spread was written after the AZ vaccine had already been suspended in several countries due to safety concerns. And there had already been reported deaths in the UK caused by the AZ vaccine such as that of psychologist Stephen Wright who was killed by the single dose he took on 16 Jan 2021 (he subsequently died on 25 Jan 2021).
The claim of “100% effective against severe covid” was known before then to be a complete fabrication, and it is worth mentioning that although the vaccine “trial” took place in the USA, even there the FDA never approved the AZ vaccine (although it did not stop them manufacturing this garbage in the USA and shipping millions of doses abroad).
But let’s focus again on the highlighted article by Tom Whipple:
As was explained here the article misrepresented a document from the HART Group which was a compendium of 15 papers by different named authors. The only article which described the rise in mortality following the vaccination roll-out was an article by Joel Smalley entitled “Mortality data and covid-19”. Contrary to what Tom Whipple believed then (we are still waiting for apologies from him) the article was correct and Joel deserves a lot of credit for it.
In fact, while the print version did not name any of the academics it was condemning, the online version includes the following statement naming Norman even though he was not an author of any article in the HART report:
But there is something else very curious about Whipple’s article. He says that
“the report says the introduction of the Pfizer vaccine coincided with a large number of deaths”
In fact nowhere in the report is there such a statement. There is only one mention of the Pfizer vaccine in the entire report and it is not in the Smalley article, but is in an article by Ros Jones which accurately states the following:
Pfizer-BioNtech and Moderna vaccines involve completely new mRNA vaccine
technology which has never previously been given to a large population.
AstraZeneca, while involving a standard delivery method, still involves presenting DNA fragments to the host cell which will then be taken up by the host to programme for spike protein production rather than the more traditional whole virus or viral protein technologies. The recent suspension of this vaccine in over a dozen countries over blood clot fears is cause for concern.
Note that, unlike the Times, HART were reporting the fact that AZ had been suspended in many countries. The fact that Joel’s article raised concerns about the increase in deaths shortly after the vaccine roll out in the UK was, by implication, especially pertinent to the AZ vaccine. So why did Whipple insert a specific reference to Pfizer in the context of increased deaths after vaccination and not AZ? The fact that the article appeared on the same page as the big puff piece for AZ is surely not a coincidence.
Far too few people were aware that mainstream media like The Times and all the others lied about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines and ridiculed and censored those of us warning of the dangers. If they had been honest then perhaps many of the thousands who were unaware - and ended up injured or dead after taking the vaccines after March 2021 - would have been saved.
Finally, it is an opportune time to give Joel Smalley proper credit for being one of the first to highlight data on potential vaccine deaths and being brave enough at that stage to be so direct. You can read his own account of what happened (including his own critique of Tom Whipple) here. He has been on this ever since and today he has produced some powerful data supporting the hypothesis that there never even was a deadly pandemic, but that many of the deaths were caused by changes in pharmaceutical prescription policy and administration (as we’ve documented here).
