Children and suicide
Heartbreaking is what is now being referred to as an epidemic of child suicide, as self-inflicted deaths of children are now on the rise.
In Ireland, the UK Daily Mail wrote that making children wear masks is “child abuse” and can worsen existing health issues, stunt language skills, and cause psychological harm.
Researchers, in a pre-print study out of Brown University, Aug.11, 2021, provide “suggestive” — and alarming — evidence that NPIs (another euphemism for lockdowns, non-pharmaceutical interventions) have “fundamentally altered the child health landscape” and are “ significantly and negatively affecting infant and child development.”
Reported was that "children born during the pandemic are displaying significantly lower cognitive performance (verbal, motor and overall) compared to children born pre-pandemic, and that early stage IQ testing of pandemic babies produced an average score of around 78, versus a mean IQ score that, over the past decade, hovered around 100."
What about teens?
Newly released data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal a surge in self harm and hospitalizations from poor mental health among teens in 2020.
"Overall, the number of psychiatric-related hospital visits among young people increased 31 percent last year. For young women this number was far more grievous. Suspected suicide attempts in girls increased 50.6 percent, compared to a 3.7 percent increase in young men."
As the report concludes, "The implications of lockdowns, such as “physical distancing, barriers to mental health treatment, increases in substance use, and anxiety about family health and economic problems, all particularly affected children, contributing to a widespread increase in suicidal thoughts."
A recent Wall Street Journal article completes the picture painted by the CDC by revealing that in California teenage suicide increased 24 percent, leading to 134 deaths in 2020. In contrast, only 23 California minors died of Covid-19.
Specifically, in Oakland, California hospitals saw a 66 percent increase in teenagers screening positive for suicidal ideation between March and October of 2020.
In the UK, Dr. David Greenhorn of England’s Bradford Royal Infirmary, wrote an article entitled Child Suicide is Becoming an ‘International Epidemic’ Amid Restricted Pandemic Life. Check here. Christian Post has an article here on the same subject.
Is it any wonder that Harvard Researchers recently reported, Nearly Half of Young Adults Showing Signs of Depression Amid Pandemic. See here the 50 state survey PDF by Harvard, Rutgers, Northwestern and Northeastern Universities.
Children and domestic violence/child abuse
During the pandemic, school-age children kept home by lock downs experienced significantly higher rates of family violence, this according to the abstracts of two studies to be presented at the American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference & Exhibition.
Tragically, trapping people at home and cutting them off from outside support is a recipe for domestic violence. This has played out on a global level, with reports of skyrocketing domestic violence amid tension and home confinement in India, Mexico City, the United Kingdom, and other nations around the world. There’s reason to believe the US has experienced a similar trend.
One study published in the journal Radiology found greatly increased levels of injuries consistent with domestic violence wounds at a Massachusetts hospital during the state’s stay-at-home emergency order. "This data confirms what we suspected," the study’s co-author told US News and World Report. "Being confined to home for a period of time would increase the possibility for violence between intimate partners."
A separate study analyzing data from police precincts in several major US cities also showed increases in domestic violence during the lockdown period, with the increases ranging from 10 percent to 27 percent.
Then there are adults – who, ipso facto, impact the kids they care for as well. Tara N. Richards and Justin Nix wrote in Natural Blaze that “Domestic violence rose globally in 2020—so much so that doctors have called it “a pandemic within a pandemic.”
The National Commission on COVID-19 and Criminal Justice, a team of national experts tasked with assessing the impact of COVID-19 on the justice system, recently estimated that in the United States domestic violence incidents increased 8.1% on average following stay-at-home orders.
Worldwide, the United Nations estimates there was a 20% increase in domestic violence incidents across its 193 member states during the 2020 COVID-19 lock downs.
Women who may already be struggling to pay bills, may now be forced to stay with abusers in situations, where in lower paying jobs they can’t afford to move out.
What about the jab?
Pfizer has asked the FDA for an Emergency Use Authorization allowing its COVID vaccine to be used on children between the ages of five and eleven.
Former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb appeared on Face the Nation and predicted “a vaccine by Halloween.”
According to CNN, the Association of Immunization Managers is very excited about the prospect of helping to “get those first doses into young arms."
White House COVID Response Coordinator Jeff Zients says that “we will be ready as soon as the FDA and CDC give the go-ahead.”
Despite misinformation published in outlets like the New York Times, however, COVID does not significantly threaten children.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, though “nearly 5.9 million children have tested positive for COVID-19 since the onset of the pandemic,” only about 520 of those cases have died, a number that amounts to 0.01% of all child cases and 0.08% of all COVID-related deaths in the United States.
Similar data is available via the CDC’s Data Catalog
“According to the CDC, about 500 children under the age of 18 have died of COVID-related causes since Jan. 1, 2020, representing 0.01% of all deaths and 0.85% of all child deaths over the same period of time.”
The clarity provided by the data, however, has not prevented a misinformation campaign seemingly designed to mandate unnecessary vaccinations for children.
New York Times reporter Apoorva Mandavilli made the fearmongering claims in an Oct. 6 article that “nearly 900,000 children have been hospitalized with Covid-19 since the pandemic began.”
The next day the following correction appeared
Former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson points out that Pfizer’s clinical trial “showed precisely no evidence of actual health benefit for the children who received it.”
It neither “reduced hospitalizations (which are basically non-existent in healthy children) or even mild cases.”
“Yet, according to the Washington Post, “the federal government, which has already purchased 65 million doses “will begin pushing out as many as 20 million doses of the Pfizer–BioNTech pediatric vaccine to immunize school-age kids across the United States.”
In an article by Jack Phillips dated October 11, 2021, reported was that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) responded to Nordic countries limiting the use of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine last week, saying the shot’s benefits outweigh the risks.
“Health officials in Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland suspended the use of the Moderna vaccine for younger people due to a risk of side effects including myocarditis.
Dr. Peter McCullough addresses Covid shots
McCullough addresses the issue here on the Laura Ingraham Fox cable show.
Since kids have a chance of dying from Covid approaching zero (and this actual figure of 0.003 does not address kids with co-morbidities, very low vitamin D, etc.), should we not also be creating a vaccine to protect kids from potential meteor strikes?
The answer seems to be, per a Canadian doctor, when you question the narrative – kind of like Ignaz Semmelweis did when he told his doctors to all wash their hands before operations in the 1800s and was promptly drummed out of the medical world – you end up fired.
Dr. Francis Christian, Clinical Professor of General Surgery at the University of Saskatchewan and a practicing surgeon in Saskatoon, per this story, was called into a meeting, suspended from all teaching responsibilities effective immediately, and fired from his position with the University of Saskatchewan as of September 2021. Rational, logical discussions about the scientific merits of the shot were not wanted. Sound familiar?
Here is a recording of Dr. Christian’s meeting between Dr. Christian and Dr. Preston Smith; the Dean of Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan, College of Medicine; Dr. Susan Shaw, the Chief Medical Officer of the Saskatchewan Health Authority; and Dr. Brian Ulmer, Head of the Department of Surgery at the Saskatchewan College of Medicine. Listen yourself and judge the intellectual honesty – or not – of the participants.
Vaccines have us in ‘a major biological catastrophe’
On Sept. 24 in a keynote address at the annual fundraiser of the non-profit Michigan for Vaccine Choice, Dr. Peter McCullough charged that health officials are pushing experimental “gene-transfer” COVID-19 vaccines that produce the “loaded weapon” of a toxic spike protein.
For speaking out Dr. McCullough has been stripped of the editorship of a Swiss-based journal Cardiorenal Medicine and Texas A&M College of Medicine, Texas Christian University and University of North Texas Health Science Center School of Medicine have cut ties with McCullough, accusing him of spreading misinformation because of his “lawful” participation “in a topic of public importance.”
McCullough noted he’s not new to the national scene, having, for example, served on President Bill Clinton’s health care advisory panel.
Emphasizing the importance of safety in medicine, McCullough said it’s “beyond astonishing” that “there has been an injection of a substance into half of Americans’ bodies and there’s yet to be a report to America on safety.”
“That was not the case in 1976 when the government shut down the Swine Flu vaccination campaign after the emergence of 25 deaths and 550 cases of Guillain- Barre Syndrome. The debate over whether or not they were caused by the vaccine, didn’t matter, he noted. What mattered was that unexplained deaths occurred after vaccination.”
Today, the government and Big Tech are taking an extraordinary gamble, “testing out new technology on, not just the nation, but the world” [and now soon on children].
MCullough told the Michigan audience he’s particularly concerned about the genetic gene-transfer, messenger RNA technology incorporated in the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
He explained that “normally a messenger RNA is used once and disposed of.” But the mRNA injections by Pfizer and Moderna, messenger RNA are “used over and over … again and stays in the cells for a [very] long time.”
“We are working with scientists all over the world, and there is a belief now that the messenger RNA can survive cell division, [and] so a parent cell can give it to daughter cells,” he said.
“For the first time in human history, we have a biologic product that’s telling our body to produce an abnormal protein.”
“The mRNA enters cells and causes them to create spike proteins, “kind of a ‘loaded weapon,’ if you will.”
“It’s now known that the spike protein itself is independently pathogenic: it causes damage itself” to the cells in which it is produced and then circulates in the body for about two weeks,” McCullough said.
“As this protein circulates, it damages organs, it damages endothelial cells, blood cells, causes blood clotting,” he emphasized.
“There is nothing about the spike protein that’s good. They’re lethal.
Are Lockdowns designed to last forever?
Even though this article authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.us is over a year old, it also rings true today: Covid Lockdowns Are Desiged to Last Forever.
Following are excerpts from his article:
The virus has produced a 0.26% IFR (Infection Fatality Ratio) among anyone not in a nursing home with preexisting conditions. Over 40% of Covid deaths are attributed to elderly people that were already suffering from numerous ailments. Only around 10% of people that end up hospitalized for covid suffer from long term health concerns (more than three months). And, only around 15% of ICU beds are in use across the US, meaning that the claims of over-capacity and full hospitals were nothing more than fear mongering all along.
Consider the fact that hundreds of thousands of people already die each year from infectious diseases like the flu and pneumonia and Covid starts to seem far less threatening. It is certainly not an excuse for medical lockdowns and Orwellian contact tracing measures.
On top of that, numerous studies are revealing that the lockdowns and the masks are completely ineffective in stopping the spread of the virus. The states and countries with some of the most strictly enforced mandates also tend to be the places with the highest infection spikes.
Question Brandon Smith asks mainstream media
Why is 99% of the population being told they must sacrifice their jobs, their businesses and their liberties in the name of making less than 1% of the population feel safer? Why not ask the 0.26% of the people under threat from the virus to volunteer to stay home so that the rest of us can get on with normal life? Why are we doing the opposite of what makes the most sense.
Wrote Mr. Smith:
By rushing out the vaccines as well as the mutation stories, the elites have sabotaged themselves. They wanted to blitzkrieg the public with the lockdowns and they met heavier resistance than they expected. So, they put the vaccination program on a bullet train and now the public is wary of being injected with a vaccine model that is barely tested. Now, they are promoting the mutation bogeyman and this only makes people question why they should take any vaccine at all? If the virus is going to continually mutate then why take a questionable vaccine that could be useless in a matter of months?
All the mutation narrative does is further expose what the true agenda is – What the elites want is never-ending lockdowns. There is no program to save lives or flatten the curve. The entire health argument is utter nonsense. Nothing that has been done so far supports the notion that public health is the priority. Instead, what we are seeing is a mad dash towards totalitarianism using Covid as the excuse, and the effort is failing.
People are starting to recognize this, and they are about to revolt.
We can look forward to a “robust messaging/outreach campaign to encourage vaccination for children” from Health and Human Services and the Education departments.
The Talking Points propaganda memo of “How To Talk To Your KIds About Getting The COVID-19 Vaccine” has already gone out from on high. This big message is one they need everyone to right away buy into.
You know it’s urgent when they enlist the big orgs like the UNICEF to push an agenda.
Regular flu vs Covid for kids under 21
Jay Bhattacharya, PhD, MD, Stanford Medical School says regular, season flu is 2 – 3 time more lethal than Covid for kids under 21. Dr. Martin Makary, Johns Hopkins Univ. says, after examining 48,000 insurance record of kids, found that ZERO – as in z-e-r-o – kids in a recent study died, unless they had serious co-morbidities such as cancer
Dr. Ioannidis out of Stanford decided to look at age-related survival rates, and he came up with survival numbers (source (paywall)) that, if more widely known, would bring this mad panic to an end. He is using the latest statistical data, which by this replaces the conclusions based on older data.
“Young people up to the age of 19, have 0.0027% chance to die from COVID-19. For people between the age of 20-29, they have 0.0140% change to die, etc. The highest risk group on earth are those between 60-69 with a risk of 0.5900% to die. These are statistical numbers per age group, and they don’t differentiate between healthy or not healthy people. It’s a simple counting the numbers from available statistics.”
“If you compare the side effects from vaccinates, the CDC states that 0.6% of all cases resulted in death. That’s about the same as those people in the age group 60-69! So why should you take a risk to accept a vaccine, which does not do anything about the mortality rate!”
