It Wisnae’ Me!

“Beware the double-minded man, he is unstable in all his ways.”  (James 1:8)

The title for today’s reading comes from one of our esteemed Scottish commentators, Brendan.  I couldn’t help myself, but I had to use it.  It’s quite humorous all things considered.  

So why am I using it?

Only for this reason:  in our previous post (the one that’s presently inflaming the entire Orthosphere), we raised several points, besides the main one.  Specifically, whether the Church of Greece was aware that one of their churches was used to conduct the “First Ever Gay Greek Orthodox Baptism.”  https://www.helleniscope.com/2022/07/12/metropolitan-of-glyfada-antonios-elpidophoros-misled-me/

Clearly, this entire event was planned from soup to nuts.  All baptisms usually are.  When things get trans-Atlantic, you can be doubly sure of that.

And when a primate of the largest eparchy of the Ecumenical Patriarchate is the officiant, then we can be certain that the Patriarch of Constantinople has bestowed his blessing.  After all, for one hierarch to merely travel to another hierarch’s diocese requires extensive paperwork –let alone celebrate a mystery of the Church.

All that being said, we now know that the local bishop did not know that the “family in question” is a homosexual couple.  To say that he was bamboozled is the least of it.  This scandal has all of Greece in an uproar.  

<–Anyway, here’s Metropolitan Anthony’s of letter (so you can judge for yourself):

His Eminence has had his say:  he was deceived.  We still await Patriarch Bartholomew’s statement.  For some reason, he is laying really low right now.

And for good reason.

  1. Maybe this will finally be the downfall of Bartholomew and Elpidohphoros. This seems to have angered and riled people up unlike other of their shenanigans in the past couple of years. Maybe the Church of Greece has finally realized they need to stop being subordinate to the EP.

    However, for us in America, it seems like Nikitas might not be the best option based off of the below wording. I also fully believe that Belya was meant to be bishop of the OCU parishes in America:

    The Phanar will organise parishes for members of the OCU as part of its structure.

    Archbishop Nikitas (Lulias) of Thyateira and Great Britain announced that the Church of Constantinople is in the process of creating Ukrainian Orthodox parishes in the UK, reports the press service of the Phanar Archdiocese of Thyateira.

    The report notes that the Phanar will organise parishes for the OCU believers within its structure. In particular, there is a parish in London run by Myroslav Pushkaruk.

    ” each Ukrainian Orthodox parish will preserve its identity, customs, language, calendar, and traditions, while simultaneously being part of the culturally diverse family of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, and in particular, of its local Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain,” the Phanar representation in the UK said.

    Obviously Nikitas is fully on board.

  2. I’ll add, IMHO this has made way too much of a pan-Orthodox uproar for the Assembly to not take action. A friend of mine at one of the GOA monasteries said this was a huge topic of conversation.

  3. After reading all of the comments from the Hellenicscope insert above I’m sure the so called Orthodox of Fordham University are quite proud of themselves and their poster boy Elpi.

  4. Seems like Met. Seraphim of Piraeus has issued a strong rebuke (gotta run through Google translate):

  5. The full quotation is: It wisnae me.
    A big boy done it an’ ran away…

    …which does seem peculiarly apposite in the context of:
    “For some reason, [PatBart] is laying really low right now.”

  6. Lie down with dogs, get up with fleas.

    Whatever the Phanar does rubs off on any jurisdiction with which they are in communion.

    Archbishop “Many Spoons” Elpidophoros has morphed into

    The Google translate machine of the 13 July 2022 Romfea posting states, in part, …

    Therefore, the specific priestly practice of the Most Reverend Archbishop of America Mr. Elpidophoros and the substantial rewarding of unrepentant sodomites and the promotion of them in the middle of the Church, as supposedly “God-fearing persons”, who orthodoxly baptize their children, and the consequent amnesty of the deadly crime of sodomism and the subversion of human ontology and physiology, directly offends the anthropology and soteriology of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church and leads the specific Hierarch to trial before the Holy Canons and the Lord of the Church, because through his practical “teaching” he annulled the relevant saving mandate of the Holy Bible (Leviticus 18,22, Genesis 19,24, Rom. 1,27-28).

    Consequently, the specific Hierarch, for obvious reasons of publicity or others that we do not know, preferred the “modern gospel” of the serpent to the teaching of the Church and is now under the auspices of the Holy and God-bearing Fathers and the Canonical provision of the Canonical Judicial bodies of the Seventh Ecumenical Patriarchate.

    Personally, and because I am connected to him by friendship, I publicly call on him to restore the spiritual damage caused, seeking the forgiveness of the Holy Lord of the Church and the Ecclesiastical Body.

  9. The Holy Synod is a her?

    • Yes, so is the Church. The word σύνοδος is feminine as well.

    • better to think of it as a noun class in Indo-European family of languages (to which both Greek and English belong) than literal biological insinuation

      but to demonstrate Mädchen is the German word for girl, but it is a neuter noun, so “it” is used. “Did you see that girl? yes I saw it.”

      English used to have same system, in fact I think wife was “it” in Old English. however this grammar system was lost over time, only leaving man/woman as the last masculine(he)/feminine(she) class nouns, everything else becoming neuter(it). consequence of this he/she has in modern english conception become almost entirely associated with biological sex. Iranian and Armenian I think, could be wrong, have lost it entirely – everything is “it”.

      if wondering why we call “noun gender” and not “noun class”, it is because that is the terminology ancient Roman and Greek grammarians decided to use.

          Since we’re on this subject, Alistair is Alexander in Scots-Gaelic (correct me if I’m wrong Brendan) and Iskander in Arabic. (In The Man Who Would Be King, he was called Sakander.)

          • Alistair is an Anglicised form.
            Alasdair is the Gaelic form;

  10. Antiochene Son says

    In addition, the Assembly of Bishops has again warned Elpi in a 4 page letter not to consecrate Alexander Belya. They doubled down on the threat to break up the Assembly if he goes through with it, and I don’t think they’re bluffing.

    https://orthochristian.com/147200.html

    We reiterate our position, which cannot be compromised, that we cannot and will not concelebrate with Alexander Belya or his vicariate, and we cannot continue to participate in the Assembly if this man is elevated to the episcopacy

    “A man that is a heretic, after the first and second admonition, avoid.”

    • Maybe I don’t understand how the Assembly works but why can’t they just kick him out rather than dissolve it?

      • There is no mention that I have seen of dissolving it as such. But as a practical matter the AOB would have to be reconfigured. The Archbishop can have Belya or the rest of the non-CP bishops, but not both. Thus his “chairmanship” would be meaningless – just another CP extension, as Bartholomew intended all along. I do not believe the rest would cease to meet. It just may take them some time to adjust to the new reality.

        Personally, I am heartened by this. Assuming they do, in fact, continue meeting, Bartholomew will accuse them of breaking “the rules,” and with each meeting his vaunted authority that rests upon nothing but compliance with his will is diminished.

        • Kick out GOA -> Bring back ROCOR

          That’s my vote and im thinking Met. Joseph’s pilgrimage to venerate St. John at the ROCOR cathedral in SF was a subliminal message to this.

    • It baffles me that anyone thinks that this gay charlatan “bearer of misery” (I refuse to use the name “Elpidophoros” which means “bearer of hope” – which he certainly is not!) cares one whit about any damage he may be doing to North American or world Orthodoxy, or to anyone else for that matter.

      He. Does. Not. Care. There is absolutely zero data suggesting that he does care or ever has cared, or that he is even remotely able to empathize with another person. He and his clique are all fake, there is absolutely nothing there under the surface. Nothing.

      Those of us who’ve dealt with malignant narcissists know the type. Often these are our own family members whose psychopathology needs to have others to use and abuse. Indeed, the more codependent gravitate toward the narcissists because they psychologically “need to be abused.” It’s terribly pathological, on both ends. It’s even worse when this pathological dynamic gets labeled as “Christian.”

      This “bearer of misery” as some call “Elpidophoros” is a diabolical malignant narcissist. End of story. The ONLY way to deal with these people is to go no-contact, and pray that somehow, in some capacity, that this person might find healing eventually and allow God to touch their heart.

      But above all, we must avoid him and anyone he associates with like the plague. To people like this, other people are either tools to be used for personal gain or they are disposable like yesterday’s trash.

      These are quaint letters from the other North American hierarchs, and it’s very cute that they actually think that this “bearer of misery” cares anything about them. He doesn’t.

      This is probably too rough for some to hear, but it’s the truth, and I think most know this truth in their hearts.

      • Antiochene Son says

        I don’t think they really believe he’ll change his mind. I think they are just creating the paper trail to prove they tried to appeal to him, so that when the inevitable occurs it will be on record why.

    Met. Seraphim of Piraeus Denounces Heretical Conduct of Elpidophoros on Baptism for Gay Couple
    https://www.orthodoxytoday.org/blog/2022/07/met-seraphim-of-piraeus-denounces-heretical-conduct-of-elpidophoros-on-baptism-for-gay-couple/

  12. It is appearing more and more likely that Elpidophoros will be thrown under the bus for the consequences of doing precisely those things that he was ordered and blessed by the EP to do. I am not at all sure that his removal, by itself, would be a good thing, as it allows the EP to continue on its merry way free of perceived responsibility.

    Don’t be fooled if this occurs. Epidophoros did/does nothing apart from the EP’s direct orders or permission. Nor will his successor. A new mask may appear, but nothing will change unless the EP itself repents.

    We are, after all, still waiting to hear reports of a single EP heirarch to object publicly to any of his recent actions while at least one heirarch of the Church of Greece, shielded as he is from the direct wrath of Bartholomew, has not hesitated to do so…and, I would add, he did do in a way that reveals the utter nonsense of Elpidophoros’s “baptismal apologists.”

  13. Petros,

    There is no mention that I have seen of dissolving it as such. But as a practical matter the AOB would have to be reconfigured.

      They will stay together and as a group and remove themselves [again, as a group] from the Assembly.

  14. Germany: Birth Rates Drop Dramatically in 2022 –
    Is it Caused by Covid Injections?

    https://expose-news.com/2022/07/18/germany-birth-rates-drop-dramatically-in-2022/

    ‘ The reduced birth rate during January to March 2022 in Germany compared to the previous seven years is 6.6 sigma – a 1 in 12.5 billion chance. Something dramatic had to have happened to stop conception from occurring during March to June 2021.

    It’s not only Germany that’s seeing a reduction in birth rates: Taiwan, the UK, Hungary, Sweden and US are also recording reduced birth rates – and British corporate media is “celebrating.” … ‘

    Dr Ah Kahn Syed | German Birth Data

    ‘ …The German birth data has just been released and updated to April 2022 and continues to show an 11% drop from the average for the last 7 years and a 13% drop from 2021.

    The drop from the previous 7 years is 6.6 sigma. It’s a never event.

    A bunch of authors including Jikkyleaks, Igor Chudov and Josh Guetzgow raised the flags on the sudden drop in birth rates only to be censored or “fact-checked.”

    Well, fact-check this. A 6.6 sigma event is a 1 in 12.5 billion chance.

    But sure, there’s nothing to see here. Move along. … ‘

    Well, it is not, and the data for June was just released in Taiwan. I am very upset. June Birth Rate Cratered by 27.66%!

    Compared to June 2021, the birth rate in Jun 2022 is down by -27.66%. This is far worse than the previous month’s (May) drop of -23.34% and indicates a worsening birth rate trend. … ‘

    COVID Jabs Impact Both Male and Female Fertility
    Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola | July 25, 2022

    ‘ The first COVID shots rolled out in December 2020, and it didn’t take long before doctors and scientists started warning of possible reproductive effects, as the jab may cross-react with syncytin and reproductive genes in sperm, ova and placenta in ways that might impair reproduction
    According to one recent investigation, 42% of women with regular menstrual cycles said they bled more heavily than usual after vaccination; 39% of those on gender-affirming hormone treatments reported breakthrough bleeding, as did 71% of women on long-acting contraceptives and 66% of postmenopausal women
    Other recent research has found the Pfizer COVID jab impairs semen concentration and motile count in men for about three months
    Miscarriages, fetal deaths and stillbirths have also risen after the rollout of the COVID shots. In November 2021, Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, British Columbia (BC), delivered 13 stillborn babies in a 24-hour period, and all of the mothers had received the COVID jab
    Many countries are now reporting sudden declines in live birth rates, including Germany, the U.K., Taiwan, Hungary and Sweden. In the five countries with the highest COVID jab uptake, fertility has dropped by an average of 15.2%, whereas the five countries with the lowest COVID jab uptake have seen an average decline of just 4.66%

    The first COVID shots rolled out in December 2020, and it didn’t take long before doctors and scientists started warning of possible reproductive effects.

    Among them were Janci Chunn Lindsay, Ph.D., director of toxicology and molecular biology for Toxicology Support Services LLC, who in April 2021 submitted a public comment1 to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), highlighting the high potential for adverse effects on fertility.

    I previously interviewed Lindsay in 2021. That article is not updated with the new information, but the interview (above) is a good primer for the information she shares below. In many ways, she predicted what we are now observing.

    She stressed there’s credible evidence that the COVID shots may cross-react with syncytin and reproductive genes in sperm, ova and placenta in ways that might impair reproductive outcomes. “We could potentially be sterilizing an entire generation,” she warned.

    Lindsay also pointed out that reports of significant menstrual irregularities and vaginal hemorrhaging in women who received the injections by then already numbered in the thousands, and that this too was a safety signal that should not be ignored.

    4 in 10 COVID-Jabbed Women Report Menstrual Irregularities

    As it turns out, early reports of menstrual irregularities were not a fluke. More recent investigations have confirmed that, indeed, many women experience menstrual irregularities after the shots. As reported by NBC News in mid-July 2022:2

    “An analysis3 published Friday in the journal Science Advances found that 42% of people with regular menstrual cycles said they bled more heavily than usual after vaccination. Meanwhile, 44% reported no change and around 14% reported a lighter period.

    Among nonmenstruating people — those post-menopause or who use certain long-term contraceptives, for example — the study suggests many experienced breakthrough or unexpected bleeding after their COVID shots.”

    Other categories of people reporting abnormal breakthrough bleeding included 39% of those on gender-affirming hormone treatments, 71% of women on long-acting contraceptives and 66% of postmenopausal women.4

    Older women, those who used hormonal contraception, had been pregnant previously, or had diagnoses of endometriosis, fibroids or polycystic ovarian syndrome were more likely to experience heavier bleeding than normal after their shots.

    Are Menstrual Irregularities Inconsequential?

    It’s worth noting that the COVID trials did not ask female participants about their menses, and didn’t collect any data on reproductive impacts. Yet, despite this clear lack of data collection, the official narrative is that everything is fine — the shots are safe and won’t impact fertility.

    Just how do they know? They don’t, and that’s what makes such claims so egregious. Making matters worse, media reporting these findings continue to insist that post-jab menstrual irregularities are “normal” and not a sign that reproductive capacity is being impacted. For example, Science writes:5

    “Clarifying the issue is vital. ‘It’s important to know about,’ says Victoria Male, a reproductive immunologist at Imperial College London. ‘Let’s say you got the vaccine and the next day you felt really dreadful the way some people do.’

    If you hadn’t been informed of the chance of fever, muscle aches, and other effects that quickly dissipate, ‘you would be really worried,’ she said. Illuminating the chance of menstrual irregularities and confirming they aren’t a health risk also helps combat widespread misinformation that COVID-19 vaccines impair fertility, Male and others say.”

    Again, no one knows whether the shots affect fertility or not for the simple fact that it hasn’t been studied. No study means no data, which means no knowledge. It’s that simple. Any claims to the contrary are based on pure guesswork, and guessing is not science.

    And, while a woman’s menstrual cycle can fluctuate, abrupt changes have historically not been brushed off as inconsequential. On the contrary, suddenly abnormal menses has been listed as a potential sign of things like:6,7,8

    Uterine and/or cervical cancer
    Bleeding disorders
    Thyroid dysfunction and/or pituitary disorders affecting your hormonal balance
    Infection and/or disease
    Perimenopause

    Menstrual Cycle Length Is Also Affected

    Research9 published April 1, 2022, in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology, also found an association between the COVID jab and changes in menstrual cycle length. The change was small — about one day shorter than pre-injection after the second dose — and was not deemed to be of any great concern. Still, in my mind, the change indicates that something is happening. The question is what?

    Infection Can Suppress Ovarian Function

    Some investigators have suggested the menstrual irregularities seen in female COVID patients and the COVID-jabbed alike may be attributed to an immune response to the spike protein.

    Back in January 2021, a Chinese study10 published in Reproductive BioMedicine Online found that 28% of unvaccinated women of reproductive age diagnosed with COVID-19 had a change in the length of their cycle, 19% had prolonged cycles and 25% had a change in menstrual blood volume.

    The researchers hypothesized that “the menstruation changes of these patients might be the consequence of transient sex hormone changes” caused by a temporary suppression of ovarian function during infection.

    Dr. Natalie Crawford, a fertility specialist, has suggested that the menstrual irregularities seen in female COVID-19 patients may be linked to a cellular immunity response, and since the COVID shot instructs your body to make the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, which your immune system then responds to, the effects of the jab may be similar to the natural infection.11 In a 2021 BMJ editorial, Male, quoted by Science above, presented a similar view:12

    “Menstrual changes have been reported after both mRNA and adenovirus vectored COVID-19 vaccines, suggesting that, if there is a connection, it is likely to be a result of the immune response to vaccination rather than a specific vaccine component. Vaccination against human papillomavirus (HPV) has also been associated with menstrual changes.

    … Biologically plausible mechanisms linking immune stimulation with menstrual changes include immunological influences on the hormones driving the menstrual cycle or effects mediated by immune cells in the lining of the uterus, which are involved in the cyclical build-up and breakdown of this tissue. Research exploring a possible association between COVID-19 vaccines and menstrual changes may also help understand the mechanism.”

    That doesn’t mean menstrual irregularities are of no consequence, though. After all, it appears we’re dealing with a manmade virus, and the mRNA in the shot that programs for spike protein production is genetically engineered on top of that.

    Perhaps this is why a greater percentage of women report menstrual irregularities following the COVID jab, compared to the percentage of women who experience irregularities following natural infection?

    It may also be worth looking into the parallels between the blood clotting disorders reported — both in some COVID-19 cases and post-COVID-19 jab — and Von Willebrand disease,13 a chronic condition that prevents normal blood clotting, thus resulting in excessively heavy periods.

    Miscarriages, Fetal Deaths and Stillbirths Have Skyrocketed

    Menstrual irregularities aren’t the only safety signal. Miscarriages, fetal deaths and stillbirths have also risen after the rollout of the COVID shots. In November 2021, Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, British Columbia (BC), delivered an astonishing 13 stillborn babies in a 24-hour period, and all of the mothers had received the COVID jab.14

    In a typical month, there may be one stillborn baby at the hospital, making 13 stillbirths in 24 hours highly unusual. Scotland has also experienced an unusual rise in infant death rates. During September 2021, at least 21 babies under 4 weeks old died — a rate of 4.9 per 1,000 births. Historically, the average death rate among newborns in Scotland is about 2 per 1,000 births.15

    Yet, despite stillbirths going up after the introduction of the COVID jabs — as opposed to rising beforehand — studies linking stillbirths to SARS-CoV-2 infection have been used to encourage pregnant women to get the shot.16

    So, basically, it’s been discovered that the infection itself can cause stillbirth (and we know the spike protein of the virus is the part that causes most of the problems), yet they want you to believe that the spike protein produced by the shot will somehow have a protective impact on pregnancy.

    This line of reasoning falls apart even further when you consider that scientists are now saying post-jab menstrual irregularities are likely due to immune responses that arise in response to both the virus and the jab. If that’s true, then why would the COVID shot not also be able to cause stillbirths to the same or greater degree than the virus?

    There Are No Data to Support COVID Jab for Pregnant Women

    Health officials are adamant that pregnant women get a COVID-19 injection, but the data don’t support its safety. The CDC-sponsored study17 published in The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) that was widely used to support the U.S. recommendation for pregnant women to get injected was corrected in October 2021, with the correction stating:18

    “In the table footnotes, the following content should have been appended to the double dagger footnote:

    ‘No denominator was available to calculate a risk estimate for spontaneous abortions, because at the time of this report, follow-up through 20 weeks was not yet available for 905 of the 1224 participants vaccinated within 30 days before the first day of the last menstrual period or in the first trimester. Furthermore, any risk estimate would need to account for gestational week-specific risk of spontaneous abortion.'”

    COVID Jab Affects Male Fertility Too

    Other recent research19,20 has found the Pfizer COVID jab also “temporarily impairs semen concentration and motile count” in men. As noted by the authors:21

    “The development of COVID-19 vaccinations represents a notable scientific achievement. Nevertheless, concerns have been raised regarding their possible detrimental impact on male fertility …

    Thirty-seven SD [semen donors] from three sperm banks that provided 216 samples were included in that retrospective longitudinal multicenter cohort study. BNT162b2 vaccination included two doses, and vaccination completion was scheduled 7 days after the second dose.

    The study included four phases: T0 — pre-vaccination baseline control, which encompassed 1–2 initial samples per SD; T1, T2 and T3 — short, intermediate, and long terms evaluations, respectively. Each included 1-3 semen samples per donor provided 15-45, 75-125 and over 145 days after vaccination completion, respectively …

    Repetitive measurements revealed −15.4% sperm concentration decrease on T2 (CI −25.5%-3.9%, p = 0.01) leading to total motile count 22.1% reduction (CI −35% – −6.6%, p = 0.007) compared to T0.

    Similarly, analysis of first semen sample only and samples’ mean per donor resulted in concentration and total motile count (TMC) reductions on T2 compared to T0 — median decline of 12 million/ml and 31.2 million motile spermatozoa, respectively … on first sample evaluation and median decline of 9.5 × 106 and 27.3 million motile spermatozoa … on samples’ mean examination. T3 evaluation demonstrated overall recovery without …

    This longitudinal study focused on SD demonstrates selective temporary sperm concentration and TMC deterioration 3 months after vaccination followed by later recovery verified by diverse statistical analyses.”

    As with women’s menstrual problems, the authors blame these adverse effects in men on a “systemic immune response” to the COVID shot. However, while they claim men’s’ reproductive capacity will recover in about three months, this could still be a tremendous problem.

    Remember, the mRNA shots are recommended at three-month intervals for the original series, and boosters are now being recommended at varying intervals thereafter. If you destroy a man’s sperm for three months every time he gets a COVID shot, you’re significantly reducing the probability of him fathering a child for a good part of any given year.

    Massive Depopulation Underway

    Whether accidental or intentional, the fact of the matter is that we’re now seeing an abrupt drop in live births along with an equally sudden rise in excess deaths among adults. The end result will be a reduction in the global population.

    That seems inevitable at this point, and the timing of these trends correspond with the release of these experimental COVID gene transfer injections. For example, Germany recently released data showing a 10% decline in birth rate during the first quarter of 2022.22

    The live birth rate graph for Sweden looks much the same:23,24

    Other countries are also seeing unexpected birth rate reductions, nine months after the start of the mass vaccination campaign against COVID. Between January and April 2022, Switzerland’s birth rate was 15% lower than expected, the U.K.’s was down by 10% and Taiwan’s was down 23%.25,26,27

    In the five countries with the highest COVID jab uptake, fertility has dropped by an average of 15.2%, whereas the five countries with the lowest COVID jab uptake have seen an average reduction of just 4.66%.

    In a July 5, 2022, Counter Signal article, Mike Campbell reported concerns expressed by Hungarian MP Dúró Dóra during a Parliamentary speech:28

    “In January this year, something happened that has not happened for decades. The birth rate fell by 20% compared to the same period last year. And what is even more worrying is that the fertility has also fallen — something not seen since 2011 …

    [A] researcher at the KRTK Institute of Economics points out that this drastic decline came just nine months after the COVID mass vaccinations began in Hungary.”

    After looking into further, Campbell discovered that in the five countries with the highest COVID jab uptake, fertility has dropped by an average of 15.2%, whereas the five countries with the lowest COVID jab uptake have seen an average reduction of just 4.66%.

    The U.S. is also showing signs of a drop in live births. Provisional data from North Dakota shows a 10% decline in February 2022, 13% reduction in March and an 11% reduction in April, compared to the corresponding months in 2021.29

    Take Responsibility for Your Health

    At this time, women are not being warned about the risks for miscarriage, menstrual irregularities and the potential for fertility problems and stillbirths, even though all of these safety signals are glaringly obvious. As obstetrician-gynecologist specialist, Dr. James Thorp, told The Epoch Times in April 2022:31

    “I’ve seen many, many, many complications in pregnant women, in moms and in fetuses, in children, offspring, fetal death, miscarriage, death of the fetus inside the mom… What I’ve seen in the last two years is unprecedented.”

    Tragically, doctors are under a worldwide gag order. They steer patients away from the COVID shot at the risk of losing their medical license. This puts patients in an incredibly risky situation, as most rely on their doctors to tell them the truth. Few expect doctors to lie or hide life saving information from them simply to protect their own career. So, we’re in unprecedented times in more ways than one.

    What this means is that you have no choice, really, but to do your own research and gauge the risks as best you can. There are tons of data out there — data that the mainstream media won’t touch, and if they do, they still insist adverse events aren’t a sign of danger. In such situations, you simply have to put on your thinking cap and think it through for yourself.

    As of July 15, 2022, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) had logged 1,350,947 adverse event reports following the COVID jab, including 29,635 deaths,32 and there’s evidence that reports are being deleted from the system by the thousands. You can learn more about that in “Thousands of Deaths and Adverse Reactions Deleted From VAERS.”

    The safety signals coming from the COVID jabs exceed anything else in medical history. No drug or vaccine has ever been associated with as many injuries and deaths, including harm to the unborn.

    At this point, it appears we’re looking at a certain depopulation event. The question then is, are you willing to accept the risks? Are you willing to risk your fertility, even if only temporarily? Are you willing to risk the life of your baby? Are you willing to risk your own? If not, the answer is simple. Don’t take the jab, and if you’ve already taken one or two (or three), never take another. ‘
