Big money always come especially in US, when it comes misinformation and lobbying against facts and science.

-8 ( +0 / -8 )

I was a big supporter of him.. and all his words and actions... same thing as before... BUT ... When he left my party ' democrat' I do not support the same thing what he was saying before and now..

This is my logic and most of my peers logic

Take away their non-profit status unless they are doing actual charity work. I guess alternatively they can be labeled religions and their status taken away if they go political.

Big money flows to U.S. charities fueling vaccine misinformation

The information that it wasn't really necessary for most right?

JT stories is like traveling into the Twilight Zone

The question is, is it misinformation? Or do we believe Big Brother?

Interesting to note that this article about supposed vaccine falsehoods is classified as an Opinion piece.

Whatever money flows to anti vaccine charities is peanuts compared to the money big pharma and its lobby has flowing to push their narrative.

If you haven't read this man's book, The Real Doctor Fauci, a book that was completely buried and ignored by every single major media outlet in spite of being an international best-seller for months running, you don't know 1/100th of the story of the elite orchestration of "heath" policy, fact-challenged promotion and protection of many dangerous treatments as "fully-tested" or "safe", or the abuse and political manipulation of unnecessary but coercive medical policies being regularly put into place in the US and around the world by an opportunistic, profit-hungry group of greedy grifters and corporations.

In a world where the slightest insult or factual inaccuracy is replied to with legal litigation, not a single entity has successfully challenged anything researched in his book as being false. The people like this propagandist writing this hit-piece above hate this man for pulling back their authoritarian-minded and reckless curtain for all to see. I won't vote for him because he has many other ideas which frankly are either dangerous to individual freedom or just plain dunb, but I respect him for his efforts to warn and inform whomever dares to move beyond the corporate and government sponsored narratives and seek a FACTUAL understanding of how awful Fauci and Co. truly were and are.

I think the biggest problem with RFK is that like most conspiracy theorists, he is very dishonest.

What 'narrative' is that?!

What is 'Big Brother'? Science?

This is my logic and most of my peers logic

Seeing how he has been severely criticized from decades ago that is clearly not the case.

The question is, is it misinformation? Or do we believe Big Brother?

Either the whole scientific community of the world is wrong or it is disinformation, no need to believe any government.

Interesting to note that this article about supposed vaccine falsehoods is classified as an Opinion piece.

The article is about funding that supports the spreading of vaccine falsehoods, the evidence that prove those falsehoods can be easily found in primary sources of scientific information, scientific reports.

Whatever money flows to anti vaccine charities is peanuts compared to the money big pharma and its lobby has flowing to push their narrative.

The huge difference is that this money is flowing to support things easily proved as false.

If you haven't read this man's book

You are lucky, the book is considered disinformation too obvious that even some antivaxxer groups consider it part of the "conspiracy", something so full of lies that is actually a weapon against antivaxxers

Pretty much.

Since 2021, there has been:

-- A rise in the underlying mortality rate in multiple countries, above the historical norms, in what is termed an "excess death rate" or "excess mortality rate".

-- An explosion in sudden deaths among young, healthy adults, including athletes.

-- An explosion in myocarditis, including among the young, something never seen before.

-- A rapid increase in aggressive turbo cancers.

Doctors and medical professionals say they can't explain it. But even though they can't explain it, they can say for sure that it isn't the COVID jab. That they know.

Really?!

Just coincidentally, the COVID jab was rolled out in mass quantities in 2021. But, of course, there is absolutely no question it wasn't the jab. And to suggest that might be the jab is considered misinformation and censored accordingly.

Big Pharma makes sure of that. By the monies they give to media in the form of advertising dollars and in the form of monies they give to doctors, hospitals and medical organizations.

Other than what is well recognized as caused by covid there is no such increase, in fact athletes have an important decrease of sudden deaths.

Doctors and medical professionals say they can't explain it. 

It is very difficult to explain something that is NOT happening, is like asking astronomers to explain how the moon can be made of cheese.

Using proved lies to pretend there is a link between vaccines and health problems when the opposite is what has been proved is deeply immoral and leads to people rejecting a safe and effective health intervention that have saved millions of lives according to world recognized experts with the data to prove it.

Absolutely nothing that proves the huge value of vaccines depends on any company, it is all proved thanks to science, pretending every single institution of medical science in the whole world is in a conspiracy to kill people is simply beyond what anybody can believe.

Actually no, the evidence is clear that the shots are very much responsible. Such as this recent peer-reviewed paper:

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

Actually no, the evidence is clear that the shots are very much responsible. Such as this recent peer-reviewed paper:

Definetely not, a report that could only be published in a journal well known to have deficient peer review, that have been demonstrated to publish false information is not anywhere near enough to disprove the dozens and dozens of reports that prove the contrary.

https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/cureus-journal-of-medical-science-bias/

The simple fact that they could only get their report accepted here (when the supposed importance would merit a much more important scientific outlet) clearly shows that there is something in their methods, data or conclusions that made it impossible to pass peer review in any journal that is at least minimally reputable.

Meanwhile articles clearly proving vaccinated patients are much more healthy and have no increase of pathologies than unvaccinated ones have been already replicated without problem.

Again, pretending doctors and scientist around the world are all hiding information that put their families and friends lives at risk just for profit is impossible to believe. Except of course for people that would do precisely that (sacrifice their loved ones for money) so they think is natural for anybody else to do the same.

Most of the more "respectable" journals would never accept a paper critical of vaccines. I suspect the authors knew this and just wanted their research to be published... to save lives.

You always say this but there is no evidence all doctors do this. Many doctors do not recommend their family and friends to get the shot. Even Dr. Paul Offit recommended his son not to get the booster. Many thousands of health workers world-wide did not want to get the shot, preferring to lose their job.

When it is based on falsehoods, faulthy methodologies or invalid conclusions not supported by the evidence no, and they should not, no matter if the report is for or against vaccines. That is the whole point of peer review (pre and post publication) Cureos has been demonstrated to publish obvious falsehoods before since it does not care about the scientific value of the manuscripts and that they are destroyed after publication by valid and correct criticisms, which is why it is the choice of authors that know they could never survive proper review.

You always say this but there is no evidence all doctors do this

No evidence except that all the respected institutions of science in the world clearly support the vaccines? that doctors and scientists openly vaccinate themselves, the family members under their care and openly recommend doing the same to everybody else (including their friends and family that obviously also listen to those recommendations).

Many doctors do not recommend their family and friends to get the shot.

Many? any actual reference to support this claim? how do these doctors magically exclude their friends and family from their public declarations? when the conspiracy makes no sense unless you bring up more and more impossible conditions it should be clear it was not a rational position to take from the very beginning, at some point the convolutions necessary for it to be even remotely possible would make a rational person realize there is no way for this to happen.

Even Dr. Paul Offit recommended his son not to get the booster. 

Under what conditions? a primary source for this would be necessary for context, recommending a person to skip one booster to get a better one a month later could for example be something perfectly supported by the scientific evidence.

Unless of course a primary source clearly debunks this claim, which is why antivaxxer groups routinely do to mislead people into making bad health care decisions for profit.

Many thousands of health workers world-wide did not want to get the shot, preferring to lose their job.

Health care professionals that pretended their personal bias were more important than the evidence should lose their jobs, they are not acting professionally by pretending the scientific evidence is less reliable than their own personal opinion.

I’m just glad I never took the juice. Always go by and follow your instincts

I followed the advice of my cancer doctor who told me to wait one year before being vaccinated.

To each his own, I think if you feel you need to take it, go for it, my problem is when people try to force me to take it.

More people in Japan have been vaccinated against COVID-19 than those who have not, but vaccination is not compulsory.
