Truth : Dolly Parton Did Not Die Suddenly From Cancer!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page / video views and advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported Her Death

These YouTube and Facebook videos have been circulating for months now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported Dolly Parton’s death.

Dolly Parton is such a big celebrity and a legend in the music industry, her death would have been covered globally by the media and celebrity blogs.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet, nor celebrity blog, has reported that Dolly Parton died recently from any cause. Why should you believe no-name websites, or random YouTube / Facebook videos??

Fact #2 : Dolly Parton Is Still Alive + Well!

Dolly Parton (born Dolly Rebecca Parton on May 13, 1946) is still very much alive and well, as of Friday, April 20, 2023, when she posted on Instagram with players from the New York Yankees at the Yankee Stadium.

And just two days earlier, she posted an Instagram photo promoting the pre-order of her upcoming cookbook – Good Lookin’ Cookin’ (US | UK | AU).

All those posts came many weeks to months after those YouTube and Facebook videos claimed that she died suddenly from cancer, a stroke, or some “dangerous disease”.

Fact #3 : The Videos Provided No Evidence For Her Death

To generate ad money, the videos must engage you long enough, so they come up with some story that Dolly Parton was suffering from “cancer”, a “dangerous disease” or a “stroke”, and they drag out the video with details about Dolly Parton’s life.

In any case, after watching the videos, you will realise that none of them actually provided any evidence that Dolly Parton died from cancer, or any dangerous disease.

That may anger you, but it doesn’t matter. They got you to watch the video, generating income for them. And they know that most people will not realise that, and forward the fake news to their family and friends!

Fact #4 : They Videos Used Stock Photos

To make their videos more convincing, these fake video creators add faces of celebrities like Sylvester Stallone and Blake Shelton to the fake Dolly Parton funeral photos.

Take for example, this photo of Sylvester Stallone apparently leading the pallbearers carrying Dolly Parton’s coffin. Not only is Stallone smirking (odd for a funeral, isn’t it?), his head looks strange – it’s too large and you can see a second ear just right ear!

That’s because the fake news creator use the funeral photo from Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries that was taken on Sunday, January 21, 2018 by Getty photographer, Charles McQuillian, in her hometown of Limerick in Ireland.

The fake news creator had to make Sylvester Stallone’s head larger to cover up the face of the man in the real photo, but even so, was not able to cover up the man’s right ear completely.

The fake news creator also added a photo of Dolly Parton. In the real photo, you can see that the man was not holding anything.

Fact #5 : Dolly Parton Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Dolly Parton death hoax, ironically, also bring driven by another fake fact check article by MediaMass Project.

News of singer Dolly Parton’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the April 2024 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the singer best known for hit songs like 9 to 5, I Will Always Love You or Jolene is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Dolly Parton Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Dolly Parton’s unnamed rep confirming that she is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other celebrities MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Clint Eastwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Harrison Ford, Justine Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.

She joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. She’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.

Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.

Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.

Fact #6 : This Is Just Fake Celebrity News

This is yet another example of fake celebrity news created to generate page views and money through advertising, just like these examples:

Is Kristoffer Olsson fighting for his life from vaccine injury?!

Is Swedish footballer Kristoffer Olsson fighting for his life in the hospital after suffering a COVID-19 vaccine injury?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-03-14 : Added Kristoffer Olsson’s diagnosis, and COVID-19 vaccination.

Claim : Kristoffer Olsson Is Fighting For His Life After Vaccine Injury!

Right after news broke that Kristoffer Olsson was placed on a ventilator in hospital, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the Swedish footballer suffered a COVID-19 vaccine injury!

Sweden’s top professor [sic] soccer player Kristoffer Olsson is fighting for his life in hospital just weeks after getting a COVID vaccine.

Recommended : Did Cristiano Ronaldo Just Die In Tragic Car Crash?!

 

No Evidence Kristoffer Olsson Is Fighting For His Life From Vaccine Injury!

This is yet another example of fake news circulating on social media platforms like Facebook, and X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Kristoffer Olsson Has An Acute Brain Disease

Let me start by simply pointing out that FC Midtjylland posted a statement on Tuesday, 27 February 2024, stating that Kristoffer Olsson suffered an acute brain disease.

According to FC Midtjylland, the 28 year-old Swedish national team player lost consciousness at his home on Tuesday, 20 February – a week earlier. He was taken to the Aarhus University Hospital, where he was hospitalised and placed on a ventilator.

FC Midtjylland stated that Kristoffer Olsson has “an apparently acute disease related to the brain, which is not due to self-harm of any kind, nor is the cause due to external factors“.

That clearly rules out suicide, a drug overdose, or COVID-19 vaccine injury. It is possible that Kristoffer Olsson may have suffered a stroke, although the statement suggests that doctors have not made a diagnosis.

Announcement about Kristoffer Olsson

To be clear – there is no evidence that Kristoffer Olsson has suffered a vaccine injury of any kind. His football club made no such suggestion, and has clearly stated that his brain disease was not due to any “external factors”.

Not surprisingly, people have offered no evidence to back up their claims that Kristoffer Olsson suffered a COVID-19 vaccine injury.

If his doctors, family, and team, never said that Kristoffer Olsson was injured by the COVID-19 vaccine, why should you believe random strangers on the Internet who make such baseless claims???

Recommended : Did Andy Delort Collapse From Vaccine Death Spiral?!

Fact #2 : Kristoffer Olsson Was Diagnosed With Vasculitis

On 7 March, FC Midtjylland issued another statement, which revealed that Kristoffer Olsson had “an extremely rare inflammatory condition in the vessels of the brain“, which led to “several small blood clots on both sides of the brain“.

The status of Kristoffer Olsson, who has now been given a definitive diagnosis.

Although the statement does not reveal the “rare inflammatory condition” Kristoffer Olsson was diagnosed with, it likely refers to a type of central nervous system (CNS) vasculitis, which is an extremely rare disease that affects fewer than 3 in 1 million people.

If the blood vessel inflammation (vasculitis) is limited to the brain and spinal cord, and in the absence of bacterial or viral infection, or systemic autoimmune diseases like SLE, then it would be classified as primary angiitis of the central nervous system (PACNS).

There is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can trigger CNS vasculitis. In fact, if COVID-19 vaccines can cause CNS vasculitis, there would have been millions of cases of this extremely rare disease.

Fact #2 : Kristoffer Olsson Was Likely Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Kristoffer Olsson never revealed his COVID-19 vaccination status, but he was likely fully-vaccinated by September 2021. However, there is no evidence he just received another COVID-19 vaccine dose “weeks ago”

Kristoffer Olsson joined RSC Anderlecht on 21 July 2021, as part of Team A. On 16 September 2021, RSC Anderlecht announced that its entire Team A was vaccinated against COVID-19. So it is likely that Kristoffer Olsson was vaccinated by that date.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even though Kristoffer Olsson was likely fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his COVID-19 vaccine more than 2.5 years ago! He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not years later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination. Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Did Yutaka Yoshie Die Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did Japanese wrestler Yutaka Yoshie die suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine, right after an All Japan Pro Wrestling match?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Yutaka Yoshie Died Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Yutaka Yoshie died suddenly after a wrestling match, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the Japanese professional wrestler was somehow killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

みらいのミライ : Professional wrestler Yutaka Yoshie has died at the age of 50. The cause of death is “arteriosclerosis”, and many people develop it due to the aftereffects of the corona vaccine. The corona vaccine contains highly toxic “graphene oxide” and “mercury”.

Recommended : Does COVID Vaccinated Blood Clot In Just 3 Minutes?!

 

Truth : Yutaka Yoshie Did Not Die Suddenly From COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another example of fake news created or promoted by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Yutaka Yoshie Died After AJPW Match

Let me start by giving you a summary of what led to Yutaka Yoshie’s sudden death on Sunday, 10 March 2024.

Earlier that day, Yutaka Yoshie participated in an All Japan Pro Wrestling (AJPW) match, with Ryo Inoue against Hokuto Omori and Ryoji Sai. After the match, he went backstage for a press interview, before returning to the locker room where he suddenly collapsed.

Yutaka Yoshie was rushed to a nearby hospital in Takasaki, where he was declared dead at the age of 50. His death was announced by AJPW (translated):

Notice of the passing of Yutaka Yoshie

Fact #2 : Yutaka Yoshie Died From Arteriosclerosis

On 11 March 2024, Tokyo Sports reported that APJW Senior Managing Executive Officer Suwama revealed in an interview that Yutaka Yoshie’s cause of death was “due to arteriosclerosis“.

All the players are in shock. Professional wrestlers are in a profession where you never know what’s going to happen, but now that the timing has come…

According to Suwama, it was Yutaka Yoshie’s family who informed him that the cause of death was “due to arteriosclerosis“, and told him that “it was not caused by a professional wrestling match, so please don’t worry about it“.

Arteriosclerosis can lead to a heart attack, or a stroke – both of which can lead to Yutaka Yoshie suddenly collapsing in the locker room.

Recommended : Did British Study Confirm 1 Billion People Now Have VAIDS?!

Fact #3 : Arteriosclerosis Takes Many Years To Develop

Arteriosclerosis is a vascular disorder characterised by the abnormal thickening and hardening of the arteries, causing a loss of elasticity of arterial walls.

This is a gradual process that takes many years, and can begin as early as childhood! In fact, many people with arteriosclerosis are unaware they have it because they do not have symptoms until the hardened arteries lead to complications.

To be clear – there is no evidence any COVID-19 vaccine can cause arteriosclerosis, which takes many years to develop.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Reduce Risk In CVD Patients

People with cardiovascular disease tend to have poorer prognosis and more severe cardiovascular side effects when they contract COVID-19. COVID-19 vaccines help these patients reduce their mortality and morbidity, as shown in a May 2023 study published in the Journal of Lipid and Atherosclerosis.

As discussed above, increased risks of CVD and non-CVD complications are observed in COVID-19 patients with a history of CVD.

Ye et al. conducted a self-controlled case-series study to compare the risk of major cardiovascular events before and after BNT and CoronaVac vaccination. They found that both mRNA and inactivated viral vaccines did not increase CVD risk and actually reduced the risks in specific periods.

The findings remained consistent in different subgroups of sex, age, and underlying CVD (including coronary heart disease and cerebrovascular disease).

… this implies that for CVD patients, the benefits of vaccination outweigh its side effects.

In short – COVID-19 vaccines do not increase the risk in people with cardiovascular disease, and actually reduce their risk.

Did George Soros Just Suffer A Stroke At WEF 2024?!

Did billionaire financier George Soros just suffer a stroke while speaking at the 2024 World Economic Forum?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : George Soros Just Suffered A Stroke At WEF 2024!

People are sharing a video on X (formerly Twitter), while claiming or suggesting that billionaire financier George Soros just suffered a stroke while speaking at the 2024 World Economic Forum!

DiedSuddenly : Globalist vaxx pusher and tyranny expert George Soros appears to have experienced a stroke on live television while giving his speech at the WEF.

Recommended : Is Hungary Prosecuting George Soros For Holocaust?!

 

Truth : George Soros Did Not Suffer Any Stroke At WEF 2024!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Video Was Not Recorded At WEF 2024

First, let me start by pointing out that the video is genuine. However, it was not recorded at the 2024 World Economic Forum.

Rather, it was recorded 11 months earlier, on 16 February 2023, at the TUM (Technical University of Munich) Speaker Series, which was an official side event to the Munich Security Conference.

The video was then uploaded to YouTube in the official TUM Speaker Series channel on 22 March 2023.

Fact #2 : George Soros Did Not Attend WEF 2024

It is peculiar that people would claim that George Soros suffered a stroke at the 2024 World Economic Forum. As far as I can tell – George Soros did not attend the 2024 World Economic Forum at all!

Instead, he was replaced by his son, 38 year-old Alexander Soros, who took over as Open Society Foundations chairman from his father in 2022. Alex Soros spoke on the closing day of the 2024 WEF on Friday, 19 January 2024.

George Soros also skipped the 2023 World Economic Forum, but attended the Munich Security conference a month later, where the viral video was originally recorded.

Recommended : Did George Soros Die Suddenly From Heart Attack?!

Fact #3 : Soros Did Not Suffer A Stroke

While it is really a terrible idea to diagnose anyone by simply watching a video, George Soros does not appear to suffer from a stroke during that speech.

At about 05:10 of the full video, George Soros appears to zone out for about 23 seconds, before recovering and continuing with his speech.

Other than that momentary “freeze”, he did not appear to exhibit any symptoms of a stroke – difficulty speaking, drooping of one side of the face, weakness of one side of the body, etc.

Soros then spoke normally for another 5 minutes or so, before a video montage was shown. At 17:31, he went on to speak non-stop for another 30 minutes. In the full video, he spoke for about 40 minutes in total – pretty impressive for a 92 year old man (at that time).

Jamie Foxx Proves He’s NOT Blind Or Paralysed!

Jamie Foxx has publicly proven that he is not blind or partially paralysed as rumoured!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Jamie Foxx Blind + Paralysed By COVID Vaccine Blood Clot!

Back in May 2023, people were sharing articles about Jamie Foxx being blind and partially paralysed after suffering a blood clot in his brain (stroke) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are selected quotes and comments, which are all based on claims made by gossip columnist, A. J. Benza:

Journalist A.J Benza is now claiming that the actor’s health has worsened due to a “blood clot in his brain.” The journalist added that the clot has led to Jamie being “partially blind and paralyzed.”

The journalist has said that a well-placed source tells him that the reason behind Foxx’s mysterious illness was a COVID vaccine. He also adds that the actor was pressured into taking the vaccine. “Jamie had a blood clot in his brain after he got the shot. He did not want the shot, but the movie he was on, he was pressured to get it,” Benza claimed.

He also made a shocking revelation when he added, “The blood clot in the brain caused him at that point to be partially paralyzed and blind.”

Charlie Kirk : According to reports, Jamie Foxx is now “paralyzed and blind” from a blood clot in his brain after receiving the COVID-19 “vaccine.”

Those of us who spoke against the mRNA shot were attacked in every imaginable way. I am infuriated a decent person like Jamie Foxx fell victim to Big Pharma because a movie set is still dumb enough to mandate their cash cow clot shot.

Candace Owens : Their silence seems as though there is some veracity to this claim. We’re all holding our breath to see whether or not Jamie Foxx speaks out.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Jamie Foxx Was Not Blind Or Paralysed!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Jamie Foxx Did Not Reveal His Medical Emergency

Born Eric Marlon Bishop on December 13, 1967, Jamie Foxx was in Atlanta, Georgia filming his Netflix movie, Back in Action, when he suffered a “medical emergency” on April 11, 2023.

The medical emergency apparently occurred off the set, and he was taken to a hospital. His daughter, 29 year-old actress Corinne Foxx, was the one who announced his condition to the world, but she refused to divulge what that medical emergency was.

On Sunday, 23 July 2023, Jamie Foxx spoke publicly in an Instagram video for the first time about his medical emergency, but even then he did not reveal what he suffered from.

The truth is – we, the public, do NOT know what kind of “medical emergency” Jamie Foxx suffered from on April 11, 2023.

Until and unless Jamie Foxx or his family reveals what that “medical emergency” was, anyone who claims that it was “this” or “that” is likely lying to you.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Jamie Foxx Had Blood Clot In Brain

Initially, people speculated that Jamie Foxx suffered a ruptured aneurysm like Tom Sizemore, but there was no evidence of that at all.

A. J. Benza claimed that Jamie Foxx actually suffered from “a blood clot in his brain”, but provided no evidence beyond claiming that his source was “someone in the room”. Could that be a doctor or nurse violating the HIPAA law, or a hospital cleaner with no medical knowledge? Who knows?

Interestingly, one of Jamie Foxx’s close friends earlier told Media Take Out that Foxx suffered a brain bleed (haemorrhage) that was discovered when he sought medical attention for headaches. His friend said that he had been suffering from severe headaches frequently.

A brain haemorrhage causes a haemorrhagic stroke, while a blood clot causes an ischaemic stroke. They are both “strokes”, but with completely different treatments. So which is it?

Until and unless Jamie Foxx or his family reveals his medical condition, it is unknown if he suffered from a ruptured aneurysm, a haemorrhagic stroke, or an ischaemic stroke.

Fact #3 : No Evidence Jamie Foxx Was Blind / Paralysed

A. J. Benza claimed that Jamie Foxx is now blind and partially paralysed, but offered no evidence beyond claiming that his source was “someone in the room”. His claims run contrary to previous updates by Jamie Foxx’s daughter and friends.

Back in April 2023, one of his close friends disclosed that the doctors consider the bleed to be minor, and that Jamie Foxx is expected to make a full recovery.

On 12 May 2023, his daughter – Corinne Foxx, posted an update criticising rumours that Jamie Foxx’s condition had worsened:

Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support.

Then, on May 15, Fox announced that Jamie and Corinne Foxx will host a music game show called We Are Family on its network in 2024. Corinne Foxx confirmed it on her Instagram the same day:

WE ARE FAMILY coming 2024!🎶👨‍👧🪩 The Foxx Family is headed back to our home on @foxtv & we can’t wait for this new show! 🦊📺

All that suggest that Jamie Foxx is not blind or partially paralysed. While he can certainly play pickleball and host a show while partially paralysed, it would be impossible for him to do both while blind!

I should also point out that Corinne Foxx and Jamie Foxx’s good friend, Dave Brown, were both seen visiting a physical rehabilitation centre in Chicago, which treats patients with stroke, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. This suggests that Jamie Foxx is undergoing physical therapy for some kind of impairment.

Fact #4 : Jamie Foxx Proved He Was Not Blind Or Paralysed

While Jamie Foxx did not publicly come out and refute A. J. Benza’s claims in May 2023, his representative labelled the claims by A. J. Benza as “untrue” and “completely inaccurate“.

Then on July 21, 2023, Jamie Foxx posted a photo of himself looking dapper in a black suit on top of a golden BetMGM race car. That photo was reportedly taken during the shooting of a new BetMGM commercial on Wednesday, 19 June 2023, in Las Vegas at the Aria Resort and Casino.

This was the first time Jamie Foxx has gone back in front of the cameras since his health scare. But prior to this, Jamie Foxx was seen playing pickle ball in Chicago, and at a golf driving range near Chicago, and even taking a cruise down the Chicago River on a boat!

Then on Sunday, July 23, 2023, Jamie Foxx posted an Instagram video in which he publicly spoke about his hospitalisation for the first time.

He shared that he appreciated how his family kept his condition “airtight”, before demonstrating that his eyes were “working just fine”, and saying that he was “not paralysed”. He also said that people would now be seeing him in public more often.

I just want to say I love everybody and I love all the love that I got.

If you see me out from now on and every once in a while I just burst into tears, it’s just because it’s been tough, man. I was sick, man. But now I got my legs under me, so you’re gonna see me out.

Jamie Foxx Rep Rubbishes Vaccine Injury Claims!

A representative for Jamie Foxx has officially rubbished claims that the movie star is now blind and paralysed after suffering a COVID-19 vaccine injury!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Jamie Foxx Blind + Paralysed By Vaccine Injury!

People are sharing articles about Jamie Foxx being partially blind and paralysed after suffering a blood clot in his brain (stroke) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Those claims were based on claims made by podcaster A.J. Benza on Dr. Drew Pinsky’s online talk show. Benza claimed that:

  • Jamie Foxx was forced to get a vaccine to work on the film
  • Jamie Foxx developed a blood clot which led to a stroke
  • Jamie Foxx was left “partially paralysed and blind” after he received a COVID-19 vaccine

Those claims were promoted by American far-right conservatives and/or anti-vaccination proponents:

Charlie Kirk : According to reports, Jamie Foxx is now “paralyzed and blind” from a blood clot in his brain after receiving the COVID-19 “vaccine.”

Those of us who spoke against the mRNA shot were attacked in every imaginable way. I am infuriated a decent person like Jamie Foxx fell victim to Big Pharma because a movie set is still dumb enough to mandate their cash cow clot shot.

Kevin Sorbo : Praying for Jamie Foxx. I can’t imagine how many Americans are dealing with similar problems and the MSM hardly bats an eye.

Candace Owens : Their silence seems as though there is some veracity to this claim. We’re all holding our breath to see whether or not Jamie Foxx speaks out.

Jamie Foxx Rep Rubbishes Vaccine Injury Claims!

After the A.J. Benza claims that Jamie Foxx became partially paralysed and blind from a COVID-19 vaccine went viral, many media organisations reached out to Jamie Foxx’s representatives.

On Thursday, June 8, a representative for the movie star replied in an email to NBC News that those claims by A.J Benza were “untrue” and “completely inaccurate“.

A.J Benza, on the other hand, has not named his source, and did not respond to a request for comment. Neither did Candace Owens or Kevin Sorbo respond to request for comments.

Charlie Kirk’s representative, Andrew Kolvet, said that Kirk shared the article “so readers could check it out themselves“, and appear to push responsibility to A.J Benza:

If there were inaccuracies with Benza’s reporting, or if the family disagrees with his description of the facts, those are questions that should be directed to Mr. Benza.

Dr. Drew Pinsky also appeared to distance himself from A.J. Benza’s claims, stating in an email:

The statements from A.J. were based on his own confidential sources, so I can’t speculate further than what he said on the show. I sincerely hope that AJ’s sources are wrong and Mr. Foxx will make a full recovery.

There is no evidence and I have no reason to believe that his medical condition is directly related to vaccine therapy or a post-COVID phenomenon. Any evidence of either would have to come from his physicians.

A.J. Benza himself offered no evidence beyond claiming that his source was “someone in the room”. His claims run contrary to previous updates by Jamie Foxx’s daughter and friends.

Back in April 2023, one of his close friends disclosed that the doctors consider the bleed to be minor, and that Jamie Foxx is expected to make a full recovery.

On 12 May 2023, his daughter – Corinne Foxx, posted an update criticising rumours that Jamie Foxx’s condition had worsened:

Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support.

Then, on May 15, Fox announced that Jamie and Corinne Foxx will host a music game show called We Are Family on its network in 2024. Corinne Foxx confirmed it on her Instagram the same day:

WE ARE FAMILY coming 2024!🎶👨‍👧🪩 The Foxx Family is headed back to our home on @foxtv & we can’t wait for this new show! 🦊📺

All that suggest that Jamie Foxx is not blind or partially paralysed. While he can certainly play pickleball and host a show while partially paralysed, it would be impossible for him to do both while blind!

I should also point out that there is no evidence that Jamie Foxx was required to get a COVID-19 vaccine to work on the Netflix movie, Back in Action. A.J. Benza certainly provided no evidence to back up that claim.

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false in every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Jamie Foxx Blind + Paralysed by Vaccine Blood Clot?!

Is Jamie Foxx now blind and partially paralysed after suffering a brain blood clot caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Jamie Foxx Now Blind + Paralysed By COVID Vaccine Blood Clot!

People are sharing articles about Jamie Foxx being blind and partially paralysed after suffering a blood clot in his brain (stroke) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. Here are selected quotes from those articles:

The Django Unchained star is said to be “partially paralyzed and blind,” in addition to a series of other complications after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, Hollywood journalist A.J. Benza claimed after speaking to a source close to Foxx.

“Jamie had a blood clot in his brain after he got the shot. He did not want the shot, but the movie he was on, he was pressured to get it,” confessed the podcaster — who formally worked as a columnist for the New York Daily News and as a host of the E! series Mysteries and Scandals — during an appearance on Dr. Drew Pinsky’s online show “Ask Dr. Drew.”

“The blood clot in the brain caused him at that point to be partially paralyzed and blind,” Benza alleged, as he insisted his insider was “someone in the room” with first-hand knowledge of Foxx’s hospitalization.

“I am thinking, ‘Is that why he blew up on the set a week before this medical emergency happened?'” the veteran journalist asked Pinsky. “Is that why he fired three or four people because he had had it with these mandates?”

Journalist A.J Benza is now claiming that the actor’s health has worsened due to a “blood clot in his brain.” The journalist added that the clot has led to Jamie being “partially blind and paralyzed.”

The journalist has said that a well-placed source tells him that the reason behind Foxx’s mysterious illness was a COVID vaccine. He also adds that the actor was pressured into taking the vaccine. “Jamie had a blood clot in his brain after he got the shot. He did not want the shot, but the movie he was on, he was pressured to get it,” Benza claimed.

He also made a shocking revelation when he added, “The blood clot in the brain caused him at that point to be partially paralyzed and blind.”

No Evidence Jamie Foxx Is Blind / Paralysed From Vaccine Blood Clot!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Jamie Foxx Suffered Unspecified Medical Emergency

I should point out that, as of May 2023, no one knows what exactly happened to Jamie Foxx.

Born Eric Marlon Bishop on December 13, 1967, Jamie Foxx was in Atlanta, Georgia filming his Netflix movie, Back in Action, when he suffered a “medical emergency” on April 11, 2023.

The medical emergency apparently occurred off the set, and he was taken to a hospital. His daughter, 29 year-old actress Corinne Foxx, was the one who announced his condition to the world, but she refused to divulge what that medical emergency was.

On June 1, Nick Cannon shared how he was asked to replace Jamie Foxx on Beat Shazam, and pointed out that Foxx will tell his fans what really happened when he’s ready, but not before then.

One thing I’ve always respected about how Jamie’s moved throughout his entire career, if you’ve noticed, he’s always been somebody who is extremely professional and extremely private.

The information that is out there is the information that they want to be out there… I believe when he’s ready, he’s going to address the awaiting fans in the world the way that only he can.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Jamie Foxx Had Blood Clot In Brain

Initially, people speculated that Jamie Foxx suffered a ruptured aneurysm like Tom Sizemore, but there was no evidence of that at all.

Now, A.J. Benza claimed that Jamie Foxx actually suffered from “a blood clot in his brain”, but provided no evidence beyond claiming that his source was “someone in the room”. Could that be a doctor or nurse violating the HIPAA law, or a hospital cleaner with no medical knowledge? Who knows?

Interestingly, one of Jamie Foxx’s close friends earlier told Media Take Out that Foxx suffered a brain bleed (haemorrhage) that was discovered when he sought medical attention for headaches. His friend said that he had been suffering from severe headaches frequently.

A brain haemorrhage causes a haemorrhagic stroke, while a blood clot causes an ischaemic stroke. They are both “strokes”, but with completely different treatments. So which is it?

Until and unless Jamie Foxx or his family reveals his medical condition, it is unknown if he suffered from a ruptured aneurysm, a haemorrhagic stroke, or an ischaemic stroke.

Fact #3 : No Evidence Jamie Foxx Is Blind / Paralysed

A.J. Benza claimed that Jamie Foxx is now blind and partially paralysed, but offered no evidence beyond claiming that his source was “someone in the room”. His claims run contrary to previous updates by Jamie Foxx’s daughter and friends.

Back in April 2023, one of his close friends disclosed that the doctors consider the bleed to be minor, and that Jamie Foxx is expected to make a full recovery.

On 12 May 2023, his daughter – Corinne Foxx, posted an update criticising rumours that Jamie Foxx’s condition had worsened:

Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support.

Then, on May 15, Fox announced that Jamie and Corinne Foxx will host a music game show called We Are Family on its network in 2024. Corinne Foxx confirmed it on her Instagram the same day:

WE ARE FAMILY coming 2024!🎶👨‍👧🪩 The Foxx Family is headed back to our home on @foxtv & we can’t wait for this new show! 🦊📺

All that suggest that Jamie Foxx is not blind or partially paralysed. While he can certainly play pickleball and host a show while partially paralysed, it would be impossible for him to do both while blind!

I should also point out that Corinne Foxx and Jamie Foxx’s good friend, Dave Brown, were both seen visiting a physical rehabilitation centre in Chicago, which treats patients with stroke, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. This suggests that Jamie Foxx is undergoing physical therapy for some kind of impairment.

Fact #4 : No Evidence Booster Dose Required On Film Set

A.J. Benza suggested that the “blood clot in the brain” was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine Jamie Foxx was forced to receive to work on the movie, Back in Action.

While many movie sets require the cast and crew members to be fully-vaccinated, there does not appear to be any requirement for booster doses. A.J. Benza certainly offered no evidence Jamie Foxx was “pressured” to get a COVID-19 vaccine dose before he could work on the movie.

Fact #5 : Jamie Foxx + Corinne Foxx Never Mention COVID-19 Vaccines

More importantly, neither Jamie Foxx nor his daughter, Corinne, mentioned the COVID-19 vaccine as the cause of his “medical complication”. Corinne Foxx posted several times about her father, and Jamie Foxx himself posted a short message on Instagram on May 4:

Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed

If the COVID-19 vaccine really caused his medical condition, they would have spoken up about it. Yet, neither did so.

Read more : Did Jamie Foxx Get Aneurysm From Covid-19 Vaccine?!

Fact #6 : Jamie Foxx Was Likely Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Jamie Foxx was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he has never publicly mentioned his vaccination status.

It is possible that he may not even be vaccinated, as the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States. In addition, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

That said, Jamie Foxx was likely fully vaccinated by July 2021, when he joined action-thriller film God is a Bullet, which required its cast to be fully-vaccinated.

Fact #7 : VITT / TTS Have A Unique Presentation

As Jamie Foxx likely received his COVID-19 vaccination by July 2021, he would likely have received one of the three approved vaccines in the United States:

  • the Pfizer-BioNTech COMIRNATY vaccine,
  • the Moderna Spikevax vaccine, or
  • the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are based on mRNA technology, which introduce a small risk of developing myocarditis in children and young adults, but neither have been shown to cause blood clots.

Only virus vector vaccines, like the AstraZeneca and Janssen vaccines, can potentially cause blood clots as a side effect. Those virus vector vaccines can induce a rare and unique combination of blood clots with low platelet counts, a condition now called:

  • Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS), or
  • Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT)

If Jamie Foxx did indeed suffer a blood clot from the Janssen vaccine, it would be easy to diagnose, as he would have both blood clots as well as low platelet counts, which can cause bleeding.

Fact #8 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Jamie Foxx was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses almost two years ago.

He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #9 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false in every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

Did Dr Rashid Buttar die suddenly from vax shedding?!

Did Dr Rashid Buttar – one of the infamous Disinformation Dozen – just die suddenly from vaccine shedding?!

 

Claim : Dr Rashid Buttar Died Suddenly From Vaccine Shedding!

COVID-19 conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists are upset that Dr Rashid Buttar died suddenly, even though he was completely unvaccinated against the coronavirus!

As one of the infamous Disinformation Dozen, Rashid Buttar helped to spread a lot of misinformation about COVID-19, and the COVID-19 vaccines. The group is said to be responsible for producing “up to 65% of anti-vaccine misinformation on social media platforms“.

The news was confirmed by other members of the Disinformation Dozen, with Sayer Ji – founder of Green Med Co, being amongst the first to confirm that Rashid Buttar passed away on Thursday, May 18, 2023.

Dr Rashid Buttar’s sudden death apparently stunned many conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists, because he was definitely not vaccinated. It seemed impossible to these people that unvaccinated people would ever “die suddenly”.

So how exactly did Dr. Rashid Buttar die suddenly, despite being unvaccinated? Officially, his family has not spoken up, or revealed his cause of death. Perhaps an autopsy will be performed, and the official cause of death announced to lay all rumours to rest, as Died Suddenly activists have often demanded.

Interestingly, it appears that Dr Rashid Buttar recently suffered both a stroke and myocarditis, and had to be admitted to the ICU for 6 days!

Stroke and myocarditis – the two common causes of death and morbidity antivaxxers blame on COVID-19 vaccines… but Dr Rashid Buttar was never vaccinated against COVID-19, so how is that possible?

According to Sayer Ji, Dr Buttar blamed “vaccine shedding” for his stroke and myocarditis – vaccine spike proteins released by vaccinated individuals entering his body to poison him! Wow!

For the record, Rashid reached out to me on Feb. 18th, and explained that only a few weeks before, he was in the ICU for 6 days, with a diagnosis of both stroke and myocarditis, with symptoms and biomarkers consistent with adverse effects from the mRNA jabs (which he did not have).

As you will see in the video, he believed that he was experiencing the result of shedding (aka, “self-amplifying” properties) from the transgenic mRNA jabs.

Recommended : COVID vaccines have 1000X death rate than safe limit?!

 

Truth : Dr Rashid Buttar Did Not Die From Vaccine Shedding!

The truth is – we still don’t know exactly how and what Dr Rashid Buttar died. He was in intensive care for six days, but that was in January, after experiencing significant limb swelling and shortness of breath. Did he have heart failure too, or was he suffering from COVID-19? We don’t know.

He was admitted to the hospital on January 18, 2023, weighing 260 pounds (118 kg). By the time he was discharged, he only weighed 180 pounds (81.6 kg).

He did not reveal what caused his myocarditis or stroke, but considering the fact that he was never vaccinated, it was possible that he could have developed viral myocarditis and stroke after a COVID-19 infection. Studies have shown that the risk of developing myocarditis and stroke is much, much higher with a single COVID-19 infection than it is with any COVID-19 vaccine! But again – this is mere speculation.

What we know for sure is that his death had nothing to do with vaccine shedding (or viral shedding), as Dr. Rashid Bullar himself suggested prior to his death.

Vaccine / viral shedding is only possible with live, attenuated virus vaccines, which use a weakened form of the virus which can “multiply” and “shed” inside and outside the body.

Vaccine / viral shedding is not possible with current COVID-19 vaccines, because none of them use live, attenuated SARS-CoV-2 viruses! So it is simply impossible for any COVID-19 vaccine currently approved to shed viruses or spike proteins.

Dr Rashid Buttar : A Controversial Career

Born in London on January 20, 1966 to Pakistani parents, Rashid Ali Buttar emigrated to the US when he was 9, and eventually became a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. After that, he found himself in many controversial circumstances.

In 2007, Rashid Buttar was brought before the North Carolina Board of Medical Examiners, accused of unprofessional conduct while treating four cancer patients, three of whom died. The panel would recommend that his licence be suspended indefinitely, and that he be prohibited from treating children or patients with cancer, but ultimately stayed that decision.

In 2010, the FDA warned Rashid Buttar about illegally marketing unapproved topical creams. FDA inspections also revealed that his company, V-SAB Medical Labs, did not comply with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), and its products were adulterated.

In 2011, the Hawaii Medical Board denied Rashid Buttar a medical licence.

In 2019, the North Carolina Medical Board disciplined Rashid Buttar after receiving two complaints – his treatment of a cancer patient increased the patient’s pain and suffering, and his “personal relationship with the parent of a young patient” violated boundary.

In March 2021, the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) listed Dr. Rashid Buttar as part of the Disinformation Dozen – 12 individuals or organisations responsible for up to 65% of anti-vaccine content on major social media sites.

Dr Rashid Buttar is survived by his three children, Sara (30), Abie (24), and Rohan (18). Our deepest condolences to his family.

Did Jamie Foxx Get Aneurysm From Covid-19 Vaccine?!

Was Jamie Foxx hospitalised after suffering a ruptured brain aneurysm from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Jamie Foxx Suffered Ruptured Aneurysm From Covid-19 Vaccine!

Truth : Jamie Foxx Did Not Suffer Ruptured Aneurysm From Covid-19 Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Jamie Foxx Suffered Unspecified Medical Emergency

Jamie Foxx (born Eric Marlon Bishop on December 13, 1967) was in Atlanta, Georgia filming his Netflix movie, Back in Action, with Cameron Diaz and Glenn Close, when he suffered a “medical emergency” on April 11, 2023.

The medical emergency apparently occurred off the set, and he was taken to a hospital. It was his daughter, 29 year-old actress Corinne Foxx, who first announced his condition to the world:

From the Foxx Family:

We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday. Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery.

We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time.

Much love,
The Foxx Family

Fact #2 : No Evidence Jamie Foxx Suffered A Ruptured Aneurysm

While people are speculating that Jamie Foxx suffered a ruptured aneurysm like Tom Sizemore, there is no evidence of that at all.

A source close to the family actually told Media Take Out that Foxx suffered a brain bleed that was discovered when he sought medical attention for headaches. The source also said that doctors consider the bleed to be minor, and that Jamie Foxx is expected to make a full recovery.

In other words, Jamie Foxx went to get a check-up after suffering headaches, and his doctors discovered that he was suffering from a small intracerebral haemorrhage – a minor stroke basically.

Nowhere was it ever stated by his family, or a close family friend / source, that Jamie Foxx suffered from a ruptured brain aneurysm. In fact, a source told CNN that doctors were still trying to figure out what happened:

They are running tests and still trying to figure out what exactly happened.

Read more : Jamie Foxx blind + paralysed by Covid vaccine stroke?!

Fact #3 : Jamie Foxx Is Recuperating

Back in April 2023, one of his close friends disclosed that the doctors consider the bleed to be minor, and that Jamie Foxx is expected to make a full recovery.

On 12 May 2023, his daughter – Corinne Foxx, posted an update criticising rumours that Jamie Foxx’s condition had worsened:

Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support.

Then, on May 15, Fox announced that Jamie and Corinne Foxx will host a music game show called We Are Family on its network in 2024. Corinne Foxx confirmed it on her Instagram the same day:

WE ARE FAMILY coming 2024!🎶👨‍👧🪩 The Foxx Family is headed back to our home on @foxtv & we can’t wait for this new show! 🦊📺

Corinne Foxx and Jamie Foxx’s good friend, Dave Brown, were both seen visiting a physical rehabilitation centre in Chicago, which treats patients with stroke, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. This suggests that Jamie Foxx is undergoing physical therapy for some kind of impairment.

Fact #4 : Jamie Foxx Was Likely Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Jamie Foxx was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he has never publicly mentioned his vaccination status.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, and many people like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley and Stephan Bonnar who “died suddenly” were never vaccinated.

That said, Jamie Foxx was likely fully vaccinated by July 2021, when he joined action-thriller film God is a Bullet, which required its cast to be fully-vaccinated.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Jamie Foxx was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses almost two years ago.

He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Recommended : Did FDA Admit Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots?!

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Create A Brain Aneurysm

Just in case there is any doubt, COVID-19 vaccines cannot create a brain aneurysm.

An aneurysm is a physical weakening of an artery in the brain, that bulges into a blood-filled balloon. Small aneurysms generally do not produce any symptoms unless they rupture. Large ones, however, may exert pressure on nearby nerves and tissues causing symptoms like numbness, weakness, paralysis, etc.

When an aneurysm ruptures, the person will experience a sudden and extremely severe headache and even vomiting and seizures, before losing consciousness. The resulting haemorrhage causes brain damage, leading to coma and even death.

Getting vaccinated does not increase your risk of developing brain aneurysms, but these risk factors will:

  • genetic predisposition, like connective tissue disorders, polycystic kidney disease, history of aneurysm in close family members
  • untreated hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • cigarette smoking
  • drug abuse, especially cocaine or amphetamines (because they raise blood pressure)
  • intravenous drug abuse, which causes infectious mycotic aneurysms
  • age over 40

As you can tell, Tom Sizemore definitely has two or more of those risk factors!

Fact #7 : Aneurysm is Not A Vaccine Side Effect

The claim that aneurysm is in the list of vaccine side effects is nonsense and based on the (intentional?) misunderstanding of the Adverse Events of Special interest (AESI) list.

The AESI list is not a list of vaccine side effects. It’s a list of mostly non-specific adverse events that are monitored post-vaccination, and includes COVID-19 and other infections, as well as:

  • manufacturing and lab test issues like “Manufacturing laboratory analytical testing issue, Manufacturing materials issue, Manufacturing production issue“.
  • product supply issues like “Product availability issue, Product distribution issue, Product supply issue“.

They are obviously not vaccine side effects, nor related in any way to the performance or safety of the vaccine.

Read more : Why Adverse Events of Special Interest Are NOT Side Effects!

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Illnesses

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s pneumonia, cardiac arrest or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will suffer from other illnesses.

Even if Jamie Foxx was fully-vaccinated, it is ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame his “brain bleed” on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.

Fact #9 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

A few hours ago I was told that my best friend in the whole world since the first day of 1975 had passed away.

I didn’t even know she was ill … until late Saturday night. I wanted to be in London; I wanted to get to London — but we were told to wait.

So, since Saturday, one song has been swirling around my head, over and over and over. I thought I might possibly get to sing it to her, and so, I’m singing it to her now.

I always knew I would need these words one day. It’s all I can do now.

On 4 April 2023, Blast obtained Christine McVie’s certified death certificate, which revealed her autopsy results.

According to the medical examiner, Christine McVie died from multiple causes :

  • an ischaemic stroke with bilateral renal infarction, a large atrial thrombus, and atrial fibrillation
  • metastatic malignancy of unknown primary origin

In other words, Christine McVie had been suffering from an unknown cancer that already spread to other parts of her body.

But she ultimately died from an ischaemic stroke – a common type of stroke the occurs when a clot cuts off blood flow to the brain.

The medical examiner also found that both her kidneys had reduced blood flow likely from blood clots, as she was also found to have a large blood clot (thrombus) in one of her upper heart chambers.

Needless to say, anti-vaccination activists will claim that the blood clots must have been caused by the COVID-19 vaccines. That’s nonsense.

The death certificate also show that Christine McVie suffered from atrial fibrillation, which increases the risk of blood clots forming. These blood clots can move into the lower chambers (ventricles) and get pumped into the rest of the body.

This death certificate conclusively confirms that Christine McVie died from natural causes, and not from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect. She was cremated after her death.

Christine McVie was also in poor health before her death at the age of 79. She disclosed to Rolling Stone magazine in June 2022, that she was in “quite bad health”, with a debilitating back problem.

I don’t feel physically up for it. I’m in quite bad health. I’ve got a chronic back problem, which debilitates me. I stand up to play the piano, so I don’t know if I could actually physically do it. What’s that saying? The mind is willing, but the flesh is weak.

While she did not reveal the back problem she was suffering from, media sources said that it was scoliosis – a sideways curvature of the spine.

While scoliosis itself cannot cause someone to die, it can be debilitating if it’s associated with disc herniation and/or spinal stenosis.

That could lead to a dramatic loss of mobility, which could then lead to other more severe consequences like DVT, that may lead to life-threatening pulmonary embolism, or even stroke in some cases.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!

Christine McVie : Why Cause of Death Was Not Vaccine!

Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie died at the age of 79, and people keep claiming she died from the COVID-19 vaccine!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out why Christine McVie’s cause of death was not the COVID-19 vaccine!

Updated @ 2023-04-04 : Added Christine McVie’s actual cause of death.
Updated @ 2022-12-04 : Added details of Christine McVie’s recent health issues.

Originally posted @ 2022-12-01

 

Claim : Christine McVie Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Christine McVie died, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the 79 year-old Fleetwood Mac singer and keyboardist died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Here is a selection of social media posts accompanying links or articles on her death:

RIP Christine McVie! Another one who has passed from the Vaccine!

The Covid vaccine strikes down another sucker! ha ha ha

Everyone is dying from the vaccine when are you sellout celebs gonna make some noise about that ? Never.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : More Lies In Antivax Video Exposed!

 

Truth : Christine McVie Did Not Die Suddenly From Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why!

Fact #1 : Christine McVie Died After A Short Illness

Christine Anne McVie (born Christine Ann Perfect on July 12, 1943) passed away on Wednesday morning, November 30, 2022, after a short illness.

At that time, her family did not specify the illness, but said that she died peacefully in a hospital accompanied by her family:

On behalf of Christine McVie’s family, it is with a heavy heart we are informing you of Christine’s death. She passed away peacefully at hospital this morning, Wednesday, November 30th 2022, following a short illness. She was in the company of her family.

We kindly ask that you respect the family’s privacy at this extremely painful time, and we would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being, and revered musician who was loved universally. RIP Christine McVie.

Stevie Nicks also confirmed that Christine McVie died from an illness in her handwritten tribute to her bandmate and best friend:

A few hours ago I was told that my best friend in the whole world since the first day of 1975 had passed away.

I didn’t even know she was ill … until late Saturday night. I wanted to be in London; I wanted to get to London — but we were told to wait.

So, since Saturday, one song has been swirling around my head, over and over and over. I thought I might possibly get to sing it to her, and so, I’m singing it to her now.

I always knew I would need these words one day. It’s all I can do now.

Fact #2 : Christine McVie Died From Stroke + Cancer!

On 4 April 2023, Blast obtained Christine McVie’s certified death certificate, which revealed her autopsy results. According to the medical examiner, Christine McVie died from multiple causes :

  • an ischaemic stroke with bilateral renal infarction, a large atrial thrombus, and atrial fibrillation
  • metastatic malignancy of unknown primary origin

In other words, Christine McVie had been suffering from an unknown cancer that already spread to other parts of her body.

But she ultimately died from an ischaemic stroke – a common type of stroke the occurs when a clot cuts off blood flow to the brain.

The medical examiner also found that both her kidneys had reduced blood flow likely from blood clots, as she was also found to have a large blood clot (thrombus) in one of her upper heart chambers.

The death certificate also show that Christine McVie suffered from atrial fibrillation, which increases the risk of blood clots forming. These blood clots can move into the lower chambers (ventricles) and get pumped into the rest of the body.

This death certificate conclusively confirms that Christine McVie died from natural causes, and not from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect. She was cremated after her death.

Fact #3 : Christine McVie Was In Poor Health

Christine McVie was also in poor health before her death at the age of 79. She disclosed to Rolling Stone magazine in June 2022, that she was in “quite bad health”, with a debilitating back problem.

I don’t feel physically up for it. I’m in quite bad health. I’ve got a chronic back problem, which debilitates me. I stand up to play the piano, so I don’t know if I could actually physically do it. What’s that saying? The mind is willing, but the flesh is weak.

While she did not reveal the back problem she was suffering from, media sources said that it was scoliosis – a sideways curvature of the spine.

While scoliosis itself cannot cause someone to die, it can be debilitating if it’s associated with disc herniation and/or spinal stenosis.

That could lead to a dramatic loss of mobility, which could then lead to other more severe consequences like DVT, that may lead to life-threatening pulmonary embolism, or even stroke in some cases.

Fact #4 : Christine McVie Had Long History Of Drug Use

Christine McVie led a hard and fast life when she was younger, partying hard and partaking in hard drugs in the 1970s and 1980s.

My drug of choice was cocaine and champagne. I didn’t use any other drugs at all. It’s easy for me to say, but I think it made me perform better.

She almost suffered a heart attack after staying up for three days while taking the white powder (cocaine), “liberally washed down by Dom Pérignon”, which was when she decided to quit drugs.

However, McVie continued to drink and smoke until 2004, when she announced she quit drinking and smoking:

I don’t drink. I gave up smoking three months ago, so I chew nicotine gum. I don’t do anything now. I’m really boring.

I have flirted with not smoking for a few years now and I am going to crack it this time. It is the hardest drug of all. I did quit for five years once. Then my second marriage broke down, so I started again immediately. You can’t stop trying.

Recommended : Jake Flint Died After Wedding, But Not From Vaccine!

Fact #5 : Unknown If Christine McVie Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Christine McVie was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that she died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – she may not even be vaccinated! After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom, and many people like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley and Stephan Bonnar who “died suddenly” were never vaccinated.

Christine McVie also has a fear of flying, which was the reason why she left Fleetwood Mac in 1998. She also developed agoraphobia after that, and moved from California to Kent in southeast England.

So any claims that she would have been required to get vaccinated to tour with Fleetwood Mac are false.

Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Christine McVie was vaccinated, she would have been vaccinated almost 2 years ago.

She cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not many months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Read more : Do mRNA Vaccines Cause Invasion of Killer Lymphocytes?!

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Causes Of Death

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s a heart attack, SADS or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will die from other causes of death.

It is therefore ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame all deaths of fully-vaccinated people on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.

Fact #8 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #9 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!

Did Pavel Krotov Die Suddenly From Vaccine Stroke?!

Did world champion skier Pavel Krotov die suddenly from a brain haemorrhage caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Pavel Krotov Died Suddenly From Stroke Caused By Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Pavel Krotov died suddenly from a brain haemorrhage in his sleep, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the world champion freestyle skier was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

🚨🚨 New #repentinitis sports: world champion skier Pavel Krotov dies‼️

World skiing champion Pavel Krotov dies suddenly of a brain haemorrhage. 💉💉💉💉

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Pavel Krotov Did Not Die From Stroke Caused By Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Pavel Krotov Died From A Brain Haemorrhage

Pavel Krotov (born pavel Vadimovich Krotov / Павел Вадимович Кротов on 24 April 1992) was a Russian freestyle skier who won the 2021 FIS Freestyle Ski Aerials World Championship.

Sometime at night on Saturday, 25 March 2023, Pavel Krotov died after suffering a brain haemorrhage during his sleep.

The Russian national team head coach, Alexander Pongilsky, confirmed Pavel Krotov’s cause of death on Monday, 27 March 2023:

Doctors reported that Pavel Krotov died due to a brain hemorrhage. A vessel burst in his sleep.

Pavel Krotov was 20 years old when he died. His funeral took place on Tuesday, March 28 in Yaroslavl.

Fact #2 : Unknown If Pavel Krotov Was Vaccinated

Pavel Krotov has never publicly revealed his vaccination status, so it is unknown if he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory globally, and many people like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley and Stephan Bonnar who “died suddenly” were never vaccinated.

COVID-19 vaccination is also low in Russia, with just over 50% of the population fully-vaccinated as of 31 March 2023. So it is possible that Pavel Krotov was never vaccinated against COVID-19.

Until and unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Pavel Krotov suffered a vaccine side effect is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Did Lance Reddick die suddenly from vaccine SADS?!

Fact #4 : Brain Haemorrhage Can Happen In Young People 

While some people claim that it is impossible or rare for young people to suffer from a brain haemorrhage, that’s not true.

According to a 2018 study published in the journal Nature, the incidence of non-traumatic intracerebral haemorrhage (brain haemorrhage not caused by trauma) for young adults is about 5 cases per 100,000 individuals per year.

With a young adult population of approximately 60.33 million as of January 1, 2022, we should expect about 3,016 cases of young adults in Russia to develop brain haemorrhage in one year.

In young people, non-traumatic brain haemorrhage is often caused by these risk factors:

  • hypertension and vascular abnormalities are the predominant causes
  • other causes include drug abuse and pregnancy

While we do not yet know what caused Pavel Krotov’s brain haemorrhage, the takeaway is this – it is not rare for young adults to suffer from one.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Illnesses

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s pneumonia, cardiac arrest or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will suffer from other illnesses.

Even assuming Pavel Krotov was fully-vaccinated, it is ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame his brain haemorrhage on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen that I looked into:

Why Alissa Carlson Did Not Collapse From Vax Stroke!

Did CBS meteorologist Alissa Carlson Schwartz collapse suddenly from a vaccine-induced stroke while live on TV?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-03-26 : Added the real cause of Alissa Carlson’s sudden collapse.
Originally posted @ 2023-03-20

 

Claim : Alissa Carlson Collapsed On TV From Vaccine-Induced Stroke!

A video of Alissa Carlson Schwartz suddenly collapsing while reporting on live TV has gone viral. The video video shows her smiling before her eyes rolled to the back of head before she collapsed onto her desk, and fall backwards onto the floor.

Anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the CBS meteorologist collapsed from a stroke caused by the COVID-19 vaccine she received.

Died Suddenly : A reminder that a majority of Media and News outlets (even conservative outlets like Newsmax and Fox News) maintained a strict vaccine mandate in order for anchors and producers to keep their jobs.

Now… we’re seeing the tragic results of that mandate 2 years later. #diedsuddenly

CBS LA meteorologist Alissa Carlson Schwartz stroked out LIVE on-air on Saturday morning during her weather report.

Vaccine deaths & injuries are too big to ignore!!

Weather editor Alissa Carlson Schwartz working at CBS television station (USA) suddenly suffered a stroke while broadcasting live news.

She got the Covid vaccine.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Alissa Carlson Did Not Collapse From Vaccine-Induced Stroke!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Alissa Carlson Schwartz Did Not Collapse From A Stroke

Alissa Carlson Schwartz was live on TV with the CBS Los Angeles’ KCAL News team for their early morning 7 AM broadcast on Saturday, 18 March 2023, when she fainted before she could start her weather report.

In the viral video, she was smiling when her eyes suddenly rolled to the back of her head as she leaned forward. She then collapsed onto her desk, before falling backwards onto the floor.

The claims that she collapsed because she suffered a stroke caused by the COVID-19 vaccine is easily proven false, as Alissa Carlson was well enough just a few hours later to post a quick message on Facebook at 12:32 PM local time.

Thanks for all the texts, calls, and well wishes.
I am going to be ok!

The KCAL News team also posted an update, stating that she is recovering, and will be back with the Next Weather team as soon as she is well.

KCAL News Meteorologist Alissa Carlson was about to start her weather forecast this morning when she fainted. Our team jumped in to help and comfort her while waiting for medical help to arrive. 

Alissa is now recovering and posting on social media.

We’ve heard from many people as well worried about Alissa’s wellbeing. We also want to thank those of you who reached out for your thoughts and prayers.

Alissa will be back with our Next Weather team on KCAL News as soon as she’s well enough to return.

Fact #2 : Alissa Carlson Injured Her Head In That Fall

Alissa Carlson later posted an update noon the next day (Sunday, 19 March 2023), stating that she was already out of the hospital recovering from a head injury that she likely suffered during her fall.

Thanks for all the kind wishes as I recover from a head injury. I am out of the hospital and doing ok. Lots of sleeping and even some pizza- TY @kcalnews

Fact #3 : Alissa Carlson Collapsed From Vasovagal Syncope

Alissa Carlson Schwartz had a similar health scare in 2014, when she suddenly threw up in the middle of a live broadcast. After seeing a doctor, she found out that she had a leaky heart valve.

At that time, her doctors told her that they didn’t know when it would wear out. But fortunately, after she delivered her daughter, it appeared that stem cells from her pregnancy helped to repair her heart valve.

According to Alissa, her recent fainting, however, has nothing to do with her heart:

Thankfully, it’s not my heart this time. I had over a hundred text messages, and they keep coming so if I don’t respond, that’s why.

On March 21, Alissa Carlson shared what really caused her collapse – vasovagal syncope.

Carlson said she had started out that morning feeling fine.

“It wasn’t really until 15 minutes prior to the incident that I started to feel a little nausea,” Carlson recounted. She noted she hadn’t eaten breakfast and was drinking a lot of coffee, “and so most likely I was maybe a little dehydrated.”

Just to be clear – Alissa Carlson Schwartz collapsed from vasovagal syncope, not collapse from a heart condition, or any COVID-19 vaccine side effect.

Did Australian Surgeon Collapse From Vax Stroke?!

Was an Australian surgeon caught on CCTV collapsing after suffering a stroke from his COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Australian Surgeon Collapsed From Vaccine-Induced Stroke!

Anti-vaccination activists are sharing a short video clip that shows a surgeon apparently collapse while performing surgery, claiming that he suffered a stroke caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Stew Peters : Triple jabbed Australian surgeon stroking out mid-surgery. Again, this is apocalyptic.

Died Suddenly : HORROR Surgeon strokes out in the middle of performing surgery 💉

Remember: medical workers were forced to take the death shots in order to continue practicing their professions.

Vaccinated surgeons are putting patient‘s lives at risk every day.

He recently received his third death-shot but no one knows what made him collapse. It’s a complete ‘mystery‘!

Stay away from doctors and hospitals at all costs, unless you have a death wish.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Claim : Australian Surgeon Did Not Collapse From Vaccine-Induced Stroke!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The Surgeon Is Chinese, Not Australian

The doctor who collapsed in the viral video is not an Australian surgeon as claimed, but a 25 year-old Chinese surgeon called Hu Gang.

At that time, he was performing a urology operation together with Li Song, the deputy director of the Urology Department of Zhenxiong County People’s Hospital in Yunnan, China.

Fact #2 : The Surgeon Did Not Collapse From A Stroke

The claim that the surgeon “stroked out”, or collapsed from a vaccine-induced stroke is utter nonsense.

Dr. Hu Gang had been working from 5 PM the previous day and was so busy, he didn’t have time to rest or eat breakfast.

He subsequently collapsed at around 11 AM the next day in the operating room from fatigue and hypoglycaemia – low blood sugar. He quickly recovered after being treated, and getting some rest and food.

Fact #3 : Incident Happened In January 2020

The video isn’t new. It actually went viral more than three years ago, because the incident happened on 17 January, 2020. Here is a translation of a Chinese news report clarifying the events behind the viral video:

Beijing News (Reporter Ni Zhaozhong) Today (January 17) afternoon, a video of a doctor from Zhenxiong County People’s Hospital in Yunnan Province fainting during an operation was circulated on the Internet. A reporter from the Beijing News learned from the hospital that the main reason for the doctor’s fainting was hypoglycemia and long hours of fatigued work. After treatment, he was fine.

Recommended : Did Alissa Carlson Collapse On TV From Vax Stroke?!

Fact #4 : The Surgeon Was Not Vaccinated

While it may seem obvious, I should point out that the surgeon was not vaccinated against COVID-19, since no COVID-19 vaccine had been developed in January 2020.

Therefore, it is perplexing why Stew Peters and other “vaccine truthers” would claim that this doctor was triple-vaccinated. I would like to see them prove that.

Scientists in China only initiated the first phase of a clinical trial of a COVID-19 vaccine in March 2020, which is two months after this incident.

There was no COVID-19 vaccine, not even experimental doses, available to vaccinate any doctor in China, never mind give them a third, booster dose as well.

Fact #5 : This Is Just Anti-Vaccination Disinformation

This is just another example of anti-vaccination disinformation or propaganda, using irrelevant or misleading videos to scare people into not protecting themselves against COVID-19.

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Did Tom Sizemore Get Brain Aneurysm From Vaccine?!

Did Tom Sizemore die after suffering a ruptured brain aneurysm from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-03-05 : Added new details of Tom Sizemore’s stroke and death
Originally posted @ 2023-02-20

 

Claim : Tom Sizemore Died From Brain Aneurysm Caused By Vaccine!

After news broke that Tom Sizemore was taken off life support after suffering a ruptured brain aneurysm, people immediately claimed that the Hollywood actor died from a COVID-19 vaccine injury!

Actor Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan) has been hospitalized after suffering a brain aneurysm. He is currently in critical condition. So many actors have the #clotshot – they can’t work without them. An aneurysm is on the list of 1600 possible side effects from the #vaccine.

Prayers and best wishes to actor Tom Sizemore that is in critical condition after suffering a brain aneurysm. So many people dropping dead and facing serious health problems since the covid vaccines. Natural immunity is all we need. Our bodies are built to deal with these issues

I’m sure they all got the vax to keep their “Actors Union” cards…. But, what do I know?🫤

Tom Sizemore in critical condition after suffering brain aneurysm

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Tom Sizemore Did Not Die From Brain Aneurysm Caused By Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Tom Sizemore Suffered A Ruptured Brain Aneurysm

Tom Sizemore (born Thomas Edward Sizemore Jr. on November 29, 1961) rose to fame for his roles in Saving Private Ryan, Heat, Pearl Harbour and Black Hawk Down.

At around 2 AM on Saturday, February 18, 2023, Tom Sizemore suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm at his Los Angeles home. Fortunately, someone found him, and quickly called 911.

EMS units responded and took the 61 year-old actor to a local hospital, where he was being treated in the intensive care unit (ICU). However, he showed no signs of improvement and remained in a coma.

Doctors informed family that there is no further hope and have recommended [an] end of life decision.

The ruptured aneurysm essentially causes a hemorrhagic stroke with increased intracranial pressure, and could even cause an ischaemic stroke if nearby blood vessels undergo vasospasm and constrict, limiting blood flow to the brain.

On March 4, he passed away after his family took him off life support. Tom Sizemore’s representative issued this statement:

It is with great sadness and sorrow I have to announce that actor Thomas Edward Sizemore, aged 61, passed away peacefully in his sleep today at St Joseph’s Hospital Burbank. His Brother Paul and twin boys Jayden and Jagger were at his side.

Fact #2 : Tom Sizemore Had Long History Of Drug Abuse

It did not help that Tom Sizemore had a long history of substance abuse, battling drug addiction since he was just 15 years old. Even convictions for drug offences did little to stop his addiction. On May 8, 2007, Sizemore was arrested for possession of methamphetamine while on probation for a previous drug conviction!

In 2013, he claimed that fellow actor Robert De Niro “forced” him to kick his drug habit, personally checking him into rehab. Despite De Niro’s help, Sizemore was arrested on January 5, 2019, for possession of “various illegal narcotics in Burbank, California.

Whether his long history of drug abuse may have caused the rupture of his brain aneurysm is uncertain, but it likely affected his chance of recovering from that traumatic event.

Read more : Did Tom Sizemore Die From Vaccine-Induced Stroke?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Tom Sizemore Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Tom Sizemore was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he has never publicly mentioned his vaccination status.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Tom Sizemore received the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Create A Brain Aneurysm

Just in case there is any doubt, COVID-19 vaccines cannot create a brain aneurysm.

An aneurysm is a physical weakening of an artery in the brain, that bulges into a blood-filled balloon. Small aneurysms generally do not produce any symptoms unless they rupture. Large ones, however, may exert pressure on nearby nerves and tissues causing symptoms like numbness, weakness, paralysis, etc.

When an aneurysm ruptures, the person will experience a sudden and extremely severe headache and even vomiting and seizures, before losing consciousness. The resulting haemorrhage causes brain damage, leading to coma and even death.

Getting vaccinated does not increase your risk of developing brain aneurysms, but these risk factors will:

  • genetic predisposition, like connective tissue disorders, polycystic kidney disease, history of aneurysm in close family members
  • untreated hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • cigarette smoking
  • drug abuse, especially cocaine or amphetamines (because they raise blood pressure)
  • intravenous drug abuse, which causes infectious mycotic aneurysms
  • age over 40

As you can tell, Tom Sizemore definitely has two or more of those risk factors!

Fact #5 : Aneurysm is Not A Vaccine Side Effect

The claim that aneurysm is in the list of vaccine side effects is nonsense and based on the (intentional?) misunderstanding of the Adverse Events of Special interest (AESI) list.

The AESI list is not a list of vaccine side effects. It’s a list of mostly non-specific adverse events that are monitored post-vaccination, and includes COVID-19 and other infections, as well as:

  • manufacturing and lab test issues like “Manufacturing laboratory analytical testing issue, Manufacturing materials issue, Manufacturing production issue“.
  • product supply issues like “Product availability issue, Product distribution issue, Product supply issue“.

They are obviously not vaccine side effects, nor related in any way to the performance or safety of the vaccine.

Read more : Why Adverse Events of Special Interest Are NOT Side Effects!

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Illnesses

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s pneumonia, cardiac arrest or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will suffer from other illnesses.

Even assuming Tom Sizemore was fully-vaccinated, it is ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame his ruptured aneurysm on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.

Fact #7 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

Did Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker Get Stroke From Vaccine?!

Did former NFL defensive tackle Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker suffer from a stroke caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker Suffered Stroke From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker announced that he just suffered from a stroke, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the 25 year-old former NFL defensive tackle was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Another former NFL Football player, STROKE, at 35, why did he have a stroke, I never heard of this before.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

No Evidence Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker Suffered Stroke From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Chris Baker Announced He Suffered A Stroke

Chris Baker (born Christopher Isaiah Baker on October 8, 1987) nicknamed ‘Swaggy’ is a former American football defensive tackle who played nine seasons in the National Football League (NFL).

On Tuesday, 24 January, 2023, Baker announced on an Instagram story that he suffered a stroke, and almost died two days earlier.

Tell your loved ones you love ’em, my life almost ended 2 days ago. I can’t believe I had a stroke but God not done with me yet.

He also shared a video from a Hartford, Connecticut hospital room, showing him sitting up and stalking to a nurse, while hooked up on an IV drip.

Fact #2 : Cause Of Chris Baker’s Stroke Is Still Unknown

According to TMZ Sports, his mother said that Chris Baker suffered the “serious” stroke on Friday, January 20, 2023, and required emergency surgery.

However, his doctors have said that he was responding as if it was a “minor” stroke, and he is expected to make a full recovery.

Currently, the cause of his stroke has not been revealed, and Chris Baker himself never blamed the vaccine for it.

There is simply no evidence that Chris Baker suffered his stroke because of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Recommended : Did Damar Hamlin Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : Chris Baker Was Likely Not Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is likely that Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker was never vaccinated against COVID-19, even though he never publicly said so.

For one thing, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States or the NFL, at least for the coaches and players. In any case, it wouldn’t have mattered for Swaggy, because he last played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in February 2018.

More importantly, Chris Baker publicly came out against the COVID-19 vaccines, posting on January 3, 2022 that “vaccine don’t even work”.

I wish you would stop shaming unvaccinated people as if it’s a problem we all have choices.

That vaccine don’t even work. Vaccinated or unvaccinated you still can catch Covid and have to quarantine 5 days now 🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️

He continued on January 4, 2022, claiming that “the vaccine doesn’t work” and “the vaccine is a waste of time“.

I’m sure you heard this on the news which lies all day every day🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️ my body my choice and IMO the vaccine doesn’t work it’s just an agenda being pushed on people.

we’ll just have to agree to disagree about the vaccination the research I’ve done has shown the vaccine is a waste of time but that’s my opinion 🤷🏾‍♂️

Unless Swaggy himself confirms that he was vaccinated against COVID-19 in spite of his prior comments, it would be wrong to blame his stroke on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #4 : Strokes Can Happen In Young People 

While people claim that it is impossible or rare for young people to suffer from strokes, that’s not true.

According to a February 2020 study published in the journal Stroke, about 10% to 15% of strokes occur in adults under 50, and the rate is increasing among young and middle-aged people.

With almost 800,000 people in the United States suffering from a stroke every single year, about 80,000 to 120,000 strokes occur in adults under 50.

In young people, the risk of strokes is increased by these factors:

  • patent foramen ovale (PFO) : about 1 in 4 people have this small hole between the wall dividing the right and left atrium of the heart. This was what caused Kris Letang’s stroke.
  • arterial dissection : up to 25% of strokes in people under 45 are caused by a dissecting blood vessel in the neck that occurs spontaneously, but can also be caused by sports-related trauma, or whiplash.
  • blood clotting disorders like sickle cell disease, which affects 1 in every 365 African Americans.
  • substance abuse : drugs like cocaine can contribute to strokes by constricting blood vessels while increasing the clumping of blood cells.

While we do not yet know what caused Chris Baker’s stroke, the takeaway is this – it is not rare for young adults to suffer from a stroke.

Truth : Danielle Mei Cabana Did Not Die From Vaccine Myocarditis!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Danielle Mei Cabana Had The Flu

Danielle Mei Cabana (born October 3, 2016) was a 6 year old member of the Richmond Raven U7 girls hockey team.

Danielle and her sisters caught the flu at around Remembrance Day on November 11. While her sisters recovered, Danielle could not fight off the infection, and was admitted to the British Columbia Children’s Hospital on Wednesday, November 23, 2022.

At the hospital, Danielle Cabana’s condition worsened, and she was transferred to the ICU, where she was diagnosed with myocarditis caused by the flu.

To be clear – Danielle Mei Cabana did not get her myocarditis from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : Danielle Mei Cabana Died From A Stroke

According to her father, Denis Cabana, Danielle was given medicine to treat the myocarditis, but her heart stopped that evening.

Danielle Mei Cabana underwent two heart procedures over the next two days, and started to breathe on her own on Saturday, November 26, 2022. Unfortunately, she suffered a “massive stroke” later that day, and died from it.

Her father, Denis Cabana posted about her demise on Instagram (now private):

We went back to the room where the doctors unplugged the machine and we said our goodbyes. Dani held on for another 10 minutes or so before finally resting.

While we may not be able to see or touch her again, her spirit and memories will live forever within her parents and sisters. We will honor her life and make sure she has a fulfilling life through our eyes.

A GoFundMe was set up for her family, and her funeral service would be held tomorrow, January 20, 2023.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Danielle Mei Cabana Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Danielle Mei Cabana was vaccinated against COVID-19, because her vaccination status was never publicly revealed.

Did CDC + FDA Warn Of Stroke From Pfizer Vaccine?!

Did the CDC and FDA warn that the new Pfizer bivalent vaccine can cause a brain stroke?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : CDC + FDA Just Warned Of Stroke From Pfizer Vaccine!

People are sharing various articles about a new CDC and FDA notification on the new Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine, together with alarming comments, like:

CDC/FDA lied to the American public & Big Pharma lied , withheld information…Now because of the fear of the Republican House the Truth starts to come out … CDC, FDA see possible link between Pfizer’s bivalent shot and strokes

BREAKING: The CDC is now investigating a possible link between Pfizer Covid Vaccines and strokes

Time to sue everyone who pushed a vaccine. Your employer. The government. Retail stores. Everyone needs to be held accountable

‼️BREAKING‼️

US says Pfizer’s bivalent 💉 may be LINKED to a type of brain stroke in older adults

SCARY

You know there’s a real & dangerous problem when BOTH the CDC & FDA raise a safety issue

They’re covering themselves BUT you’ve been WARNED

 

Truth : CDC + FDA Did Not Warn Of Stroke From Pfizer Vaccine!

It is true that the CDC and FDA released a notification about the new Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine. However, it has been twisted to falsely claim that the CDC and FDA are warning people about the risk of stroke from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #1 : CDC + FDA Notification Is Available Online

On Friday, January 13, 2023, the CDC and FDA published a notification on a “preliminary safety signal” involving the new Pfizer COVID-19 bivalent vaccine, which is available online.

I strongly encourage you to read it for yourself, but for your easier understanding, here is a quick summary:

  • the CDC and FDA use multiple, complementary safety monitoring systems to look for potential “safety signals” in vaccines and other medicine.
  • the CDC Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) surveillance system detected one safety signal, which met the statistical criteria to trigger further investigation.
  • the safety signal involved only the new Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine, and people who were 65 years and older.
  • the preliminary signal “appeared” to show that people who were 65 years and older were “more likely” to have an ischaemic stroke in the 21 days after receiving the Pfizer bivalent vaccine, compared to days 22-42 after vaccination.
  • only VSD surveillance has detected this safety signal – no other safety system has shown a similar signal.
  • multiple, subsequent analyses failed to validate this safety signal
  • the CDC continues to recommend that people get the bivalent vaccine.

Fact #2 : Multiple Analyses + Studies Fail To Validate This Signal

While the CDC and FDA will continue to evaluate the data, they pointed out that multiple analyses and studies failed to validate this safety signal.

  • A large study of bivalent vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna using the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services database show no increased risk of ischemic stroke
  • A preliminary study using the Veterans Affairs database do not show an increased risk of ischemic stroke after receiving the bivalent vaccine
  • The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has not seen an increase in reporting of ischemic strokes following the use of the bivalent vaccine
  • Pfizer-BioNTech’s global safety database has not indicated a signal for ischemic stroke with the bivalent vaccine
  • Other countries have not observed an increased risk for ischemic stroke with bivalent vaccines

Again, the VSD surveillance system was the only one producing this safety signal. No other surveillance system or study has been able to confirm or validate this safety signal.

In fact, the CDC made a point in their notification to say that “it is very unlikely that the signal in VSD represents a true clinical risk“.

Recommended : Did FDA Admit Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots?!

Fact #3 : Safety Signals Are Not Evidence Of Causation

Safety signals function like tripwires, alerting health authorities into taking a close look at potential issues with vaccines or medicines.

Just because a safety signal was detected, it does not mean there is an actual problem. Like actual tripwires can be accidentally triggered by animals or falling branches, safety signals may be the result of random chance or other factors (see next fact).

The detection of any safety signal merely means that the CDC and FDA should take a closer look.

Fact #4 : Elderly Population At Higher Risk Of Stroke

I should point out that the safety signal was identified only in elderly people who were 65 years and older.

The VSD system, in this case, found that 130 people who were 65 years and older had a stroke within 21 days of receiving the new bivalent vaccine, out of about 550,000 senior citizens. It should be noted that no deaths were reported.

That may sound alarming, but this population segment is itself at significantly higher risk of developing blood clots, which can cause ischaemic stroke:

High Risk

  • hospital stay
  • major surgery – abdominal / pelvic surgery, or knee / hip replacement surgery
  • major trauma : automobile accident or fall
  • nursing home living

Moderate Risk

  • 65 years or older
  • trips over 4 years by plane, car, train or bus
  • co-morbidities like heart failure, obesity, cancer

That is why such safety signals have to be investigated, as it is still not certain if the 130 senior citizens who suffered a stroke had higher risk factors like surgery or immobility.

Fact #5 : CDC Still Recommends Getting Bivalent Vaccines

The CDC issued that notification as a matter of transparency, and not because there was a genuine reason for concern.

If the CDC and FDA had any reason to believe that the Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine can cause stroke in senior citizens who receive it, they would have at least amended their vaccine recommendations.

Yet, the CDC continues to recommend that people who are eligible to receive the updated bivalent COVID-19 vaccine should continue to get them.

The CDC also stressed that multiple studies have shown that “staying up-to-date with vaccines is the most effective tool we have for reducing death, hospitalisation, and severe disease from COVID-19“.

Did FDA Admit Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots?!

Did the US FDA finally admit that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine causes dangerous blood clots?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : FDA Finally Admits Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots!

Anti-vaccination activists have recently been claiming that the US FDA finally admitted that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine causes dangerous blood clots on social media.

FDA Finally ADMITS Pfizer Covid Vaccine Causes Blood Clots.. The Gateway Pundit REPORTED ON THIS for over a Year..

Here is the article where the FDA admits yet another reaction that we were exposing over a year ago from the initial covid injections which is – Blood clots…. When will you see? “You trusted Satan and that is the problem!”

It did not help that Elon Musk amplified one of the claims to his millions of followers:

Hodgetwins : So the FDA finally came out and said that Pfizer’s Covid shot causes blood clots? Only 2 years late!

Elon Musk : Much will come to light as (Dr. Anthony) Fauci loses power.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : FDA Did Not Admit Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Study Shows FDA Vaccine Surveillance At Work

Anti-vaccination activists have long claimed that the US FDA is colluding with Big Pharma companies like Pfizer and Moderna.

But the truth is – this study is evidence that the US FDA is doing its job by continuing to monitor the safety of the four approved COVID-19 vaccines in the United States.

FDA and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are using the Medicare health insurance database, covering more than 25 million elderly persons aged 65 years and older, to conduct near real-time safety monitoring of 14 outcomes on a weekly basis following COVID-19 vaccine (BNT162b2, mRNA-1273, or Ad26.COV2.S) administration.

Fact #2 : The FDA Study Is Available Online

The FDA study in question is available online, and I strongly encourage you to read it for yourself, but here is a quick summary:

  • The study is called “Surveillance of COVID-19 vaccine safety among elderly persons aged 65 years and older“.
  • It was published in the journal Vaccine on 1 December 2022.
  • It looked at data from the US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) covering 30,712,101 elderly persons, from December 11, 2020 until January 15, 2022.
  • Out of 30.7 million participants, about 17.4 million persons were vaccinated with a total of 34,639,937 doses.
  • It looked at 14 outcomes of interest, and initially four outcomes met the threshold of a “statistical signal”, but after further evaluation, only one outcome met the “statistical threshold for a signal”.
  • No signals were detected for the Moderna mRNA-1273, or the Janssen Ad26.COV2.S vaccines.

Recommended : Did FDA Panel Reject Pfizer Booster Dose Over Myocarditis?

Fact #3 : Study Looked At Elderly Population

I should point out that the FDA study looked at people who are 65 years and older, many of whom have pre-existing co-morbidities, or other risk factors like being in assisted living facilities.

High Risk

  • hospital stay
  • major surgery – abdominal / pelvic surgery, or knee / hip replacement surgery
  • major trauma : automobile accident or fall
  • nursing home living

Moderate Risk

  • 65 years or older
  • trips over 4 years by plane, car, train or bus
  • co-morbidities like heart failure, obesity, cancer

In other words – this population has a higher risk than normal for developing blood clots. That’s likely one of the reasons why the FDA team chose to look at the elderly population.

I should point out that the Pfizer cohort comprised of particularly old people (85 years and older) who were nursing home residents (implying that they have cognitive or mobility issues), and had a higher percentage of previous COVID-19 infections.

Fact #4 : Increased Risks Were Only Modestly Elevated

Initially, the CMS database showed four outcomes that met the threshold for a “statistical signal” of modestly elevated risks (RR of less than 2) after vaccination with the Pfizer vaccine.

But after further evaluation, only one outcome ultimately met that statistical threshold for a signal – pulmonary embolism (PE).

Outcome of Interest Overall
Rate Ratio
(RR)
Rate Ratio of
Signal Identified
Pulmonary Embolism (PE) 1.15 1.54 on 27/2/2021
Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) 0.97 1.42 on 27/2/2021
Disseminated Intravascular
Coagulation (DIC)
0.92 1.91 on 13/2/2021
Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP) 1.26 1.44 on 24/4/2021

Fact #5 : The Study Did Not Say Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots

Let me be clear – the study did not say that the Pfizer vaccine causes blood clots.

The study authors pointed out that these statistical signals do not necessarily mean that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine causes them, as the potential association was less than twice that of historical rates, and may be associated with other factors:

  • many of those who received the Pfizer vaccine were much older (85 years+) nursing home residents, and people with more co-morbidities
  • these outcomes may be explained by co-morbidities that existed before vaccination, including previous COVID-19 infections

In fact, they warned against any conclusion that the Pfizer vaccine caused those outcomes:

Our new findings of statistical signals for four important outcomes for the BNT162b2 vaccine should be interpreted cautiously because the early warning system does not prove that vaccines cause the safety outcomes.

Recommended : Did Embalmers Find Vaccine-Induced Blood Clots?!

Fact #6 : No Signals For Other Clotting Disorders

What anti-vaccination activists gloss over as well, is the fact that the FDA study showed NO SIGNALS for other clotting, or clotting-related, disorders like deep vein thrombosis (DVT), heart attacks, and non-hemorrhagic stroke.

It should be noted that pulmonary embolism often happens when a blood clot in the leg (like in a DVT!) breaks free and gets lodged in the lungs. How likely is it for a person to develop pulmonary embolism without a deep vein thrombosis?

Fact #7 : FDA Is Not Taking Any Action

The study also notes that the FDA is currently not taking any regulatory actions based on these signal detection activities, because they need further study to determine if they are causal or merely coincidence.

These signal detection studies are part of the FDA’s active surveillance systems, and serve to identify potential adverse outcomes for further study. They cannot be used to make regulatory decisions.

Just because these signals were detected, does not mean they were caused by the vaccine. Until there is proof that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine causes blood clots, there is simply no reason for the FDA to take any action.

Kris Letang : Was His Stroke Caused By Vaccine?!

Did NHL player Kris Letang suffer a stroke caused by vaccine-induced blood clots?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Kris Letang Suffered Stroke From Vaccine-Induced Blood Clots!

Right after news broke that Kris Letang suffered a stroke, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the 35 year-old NHL player was a victim of blood clots caused by COVID-19 vaccine!

Here are some examples on social media:

Jennifer Margulis : Pittsburgh Penguins Defenseman Kris Letang Out Indefinitely After suffering Stroke. He’s 35 years old. This is not normal or okay.

Rob Schneider : The silence about this and lack of even daring to question this previously rare or unheard of occurrences tells you all need to know…

They’re attempting to normalize this… Young, healthy people in their prime don’t just drop dead. #SADS #DiedSuddendly

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Kris Letang Did Not Get Stroke From Vaccine-Induced Blood Clots!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Kris Letang Had Debilitating Headaches

Kris Letang (born Kristopher Joseph Pierre Irwin Letang on April 24, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player, and an alternate captain for the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League (NHL).

On Monday, November 28, 2022, he suffered a series of debilitating headaches, and reported them to the Penguins training staff. He was immediately taken to the hospital for testing, where it was confirmed he suffered a stroke.

Fact #2 : Kris Letang Survived His Stroke

Some anti-vaccination activists falsely / wrongly claimed that Kris Letang “died suddenly” from vaccine SADS or a stroke caused by vaccine-induced blood clots. That’s false. Kris Letang survived the stroke, and is still alive today.

Kris Letang was fortunate to have reported his headaches and sought treatment quickly, and his stroke is “not believed to be career threatening“, and he is “not experiencing any lasting effects of the stroke“.

I am fortunate to know my body well enough to recognize when something isn’t right. While it is difficult to navigate this issue publicly, I am hopeful it can raise awareness. It is important for me that my teammates, family and the fans know that I am okay. I am optimistic that I will be back on the ice soon.

Ten days after suffering the stroke, Kris Letang was well enough to return to practice with his teammates. He returned to the lineup on December 10, and skated 22:14 in a 3-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres.

Recommended : Sam Westmoreland : Cause of Death NOT Vaccine!

Fact #3 : Kris Letang Had A Stroke In 2014 As Well

What anti-vaccination activists won’t tell you is that this was not the first time Kris Letang had a stroke.

He first suffered a stroke in 2014, which was more serious and took him out of action for more than two months.

Obviously, that was more than six years before the first COVID-19 vaccines were approved!

Fact #4 : Both Strokes Were Due To PFO

When Kris Letang suffered his first stroke in 2014, doctors discovered that he had a patent foramen ovale (PFO) – a hole in the central wall of his heart.

We are all born with this hole in the heart – a flap-like opening in the wall that divides the right and left atrium (upper chambers) of the heart. This foramen ovale usually closes in infancy, and prevents the blood in the right and left atriums from mixing.

The blood that enters the right side of the heart gets pumped to the lungs where it is oxygenated. At the same time, the lungs act as a kind of filter that traps small blood clots that may develop.

However, the foramen ovale does not close completely in about 25% of people. This allows blood from the right side to enter into the left side, which means blood clots may “leak” into the left side as well, instead of getting filtered by the lungs.

These blood clots may travel to the arteries in the brain, and cause an ischaemic stroke by blocking off normal blood flow.

In Kris Letang’s case, both strokes were attributed to his patent foramen ovale (PFO), and not the COVID-19 vaccines.

Recommended : Did Adrian Dingle Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #5 : Kris Letang Is Fully Vaccinated

In October 2021, the Pittsburgh Penguins confirmed that Kris Letang was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, as are all Penguins players.

At that time, multiple Penguins players tested positive for COVID-19, but they all had mild symptoms or were asymptomatic. That was testament to the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #6 : Kris Letang’s Vaccination Had Nothing To Do With His Stroke

I should point out clearly that Kris Letang’s COVID-19 vaccination has nothing to do with his stroke, which was due to a heart condition he was born with.

Claims that his condition may have worsened due to the COVID-19 vaccines are also untrue, because his 2022 stroke was milder than his 2014 stroke.

The Penguins team physician Dr. Dharmesh Vyas described the 2022 stroke as “smaller” than the one Letang endured in 2014, and noted that the symptoms resolved themselves much more quickly.

As noted in Fact #2, Kris Letang started skating on his own two days after his 2022 stroke, but was out of action for over two months after his 2014 stroke.

Fact #7 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing athlete deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Did Thai Princess Bajrakitiyabha Collapse From Vaccine?!

Did Thai Princess Bajrakitiyabha collapse from a heart attack caused by her COVID-19 vaccination?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2022-12-20 : Added new information on her possible stroke.

Truth : Thai Princess Bajrakitiyabha Did Not Collapse From Vaccine-Induced Heart Attack!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Princess Bajrakitiyabha Did Not Suffer From A Cardiac Event

Princess Bajrakitiyabha (born Princess Bajrakitiyabha Narendira Debyavati, the Princess Rajasarini Siribajra / พัชรกิติยาภา นเรนทิราเทพยวดี on December 7, 1978) was the only child born to King Maha Vajiralongkorn and his first wife, Princess Soamsawali.

At 8:20 AM on Wednesday, December 14, 2022, Princess Bajrakitiyabha (also known as Princess Patty or Princess Pa) was running with her dog during a training session for the upcoming Working Dog Championship by the Royal Thai Army when she collapsed and lost consciousness at the Khao Yai National Park.

According to the official statement, she was taken to the Pak Chong Nana Hospital for “a heart problem” where her condition “improved” and she was in a “stable condition”, before being flown to the Chulalongkorn Hospital in Bangkok for further treatment.

However, Thai royal expert Andrew MacGregor Marshall disputes that, stating that Princess Bajrakitiyabha had a stroke from a ruptured brain aneurysm that caused a massive subarachnoid haemorrhage, resulting in cardiac and respiratory arrest that was originally said to be a “heart attack”. He also claimed that she was brain dead on arrival at Pak Chong Nana Hospital, but the medical staff there took turns to keep her alive using CPR for many hours.

In the early morning of Thursday, December 15, she was airlifted by helicopter to the Chulalongkorn Hospital. There, she was kept alive using an ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation) life support machine. Andrew further claims that the doctors had already concluded that she was brain dead and will never recover.

Recommended : Is Pfizer In Trouble Over Thai Princess Vaccine Injury?!

Fact #2 : Princess Bajrakitiyabha’s Cause of Collapse Still Unknown

Whether she is brain dead or otherwise, the cause of Princess Bajrakitiyabha’s sudden collapse has not been publicly revealed.

However, the Thai palace released a statement on 19 December 2022, in which it stated that “no heart defect could be found“. This suggests that Andrew MacGregor Marshall may be correct in his claims that she suffered from a ruptured brain aneurysm.

The statement also stated that “medication and tools” were being used to support her heart, lungs and kidneys – an indirect acknowledgement that she is being kept alive by an ECMO machine.

If Andrew is correct that she suffered a massive subarachnoid haemorrhage and is now brain dead, the ECMO machine can oxygenate her blood to keep her body alive, but her damaged brain won’t be able to recover.

In any case, the latest statement appears to confirm that the earlier assessment that she suffered a cardiac event is no longer true. This would dispel claims by anti-vaccination activists that she died from a vaccine-induced heart attack or cardiac arrest!

Recommended : Did Thailand Vow To Nullify Pfizer Vaccine Contracts?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Princess Bajrakitiyabha Was Vaccinated

The Thai royal family is pro-vaccination, with Siam Bioscience (owned by King Vajiralongkorn) licensed to produce the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The vaccine was also promoted with a public vaccination by Princess Sirivannavari Nariratan at the Chulalongkorn Hospital on March 23, 2021.

That said, it is currently unknown if Princess Bajrakitiyabha was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that she died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – she may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Thailand, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Princess Bajrakitiyabha was vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received all of her doses many months ago.

She cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #5 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!

Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique : Death Not From Vaccine!

Find out why 10 year-old Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique tragically collapsed and died suddenly in school, and why she did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine!

 

Claim : Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Anti-vaccination activists are claiming that 10 year-old Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique collapsed and died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique, 10 RIP

“A fit and healthy girl aged just 10 years old suddenly died after she collapsed at school.” “believed to have sufferred brain hemorrage”

#DiedSuddenly #VaccineDeaths #NoAmnesty #CrimesAgainstHumanity #Genocide #Nuremberg2 #NeverForget

Something not adding up. The words “fit and healthy” and “dies suddenly” should not be in the same sentence.

I hope this makes more people start wondering why so many children are ‘dying suddenly’ There is something very wrong going on here 🙁

Truth : Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique Did NOT Die From Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all child deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

But before I start, I would like to point out that it is unbelievable how low they would go. They didn’t even bat an eye in lying about a young girl’s death. They have no shame at all.

Fact #1 : Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique Died From Brain Haemorrhage

10 year-old Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique collapsed in her school on Wednesday, 9 November 2022, and was taken to the Pindersfield Hospital in Wakefield.

She was later transferred to the Leeds General Infirmary where she died in the early hours of Monday morning, 14 November 2022.

As she was of the Muslim faith, her funeral took place that very day – at 1 PM, at the Jamie Masjid Swafia mosque in Wakefield, followed by a burial service at the Wakefield Cemetery.

A family spokesperson said that it was believed that Rai-Lèyah suffered a brain haemorrhage.

So let me be clear – Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique died from a brain haemorrhage, not the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique Was Healthy

Rai-Lèyah was described as a fit and healthy girl, which would rule out myocarditis – which antivaxxers often blame for any sudden death of a child.

If Rai-Lèyah had been suffering from myocarditis, she would have had noticeable symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, etc.

Recommended : Britney Spears : Nerve Damage NOT From Vaccine!

Fact #3 : Brain Haemorrhage Occurs Suddenly

A brain haemorrhage (also known as a cerebral haemorrhage) is a type of stroke that occurs when an artery in the brain ruptures and causes a loss of blood supply to the affected part of the brain.

The blood that pools in the brain not only increases pressure on the surrounding tissues, it irritates and causes them to swell as well – a condition known as cerebral oedema.

The pressure from the pooled blood (known as a haematoma) further cuts off blood supply, and kills even more brain cells. If not quickly removed or relieved, brain herniation may occur, eventually killing the person.

A brain haemorrhage is a sudden and extremely serious medical emergency that quickly results in the person losing consciousness and collapsing – precisely what happened to Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique.

Fact #4 : Childhood Brain Haemorrhage Is Quite Common

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that children do not die from brain haemorrhage.

The truth is – stroke is among the top 10 causes of death in childhood, with haemorrhagic stroke accounting for about half the deaths.

Based on a 2003 study of a California-wide hospital discharge database, the incidence of childhood stroke is about 2.3 cases per 100,000 children every year.

The United Kingdom has about 14.4 million children (under the age of 18), so roughly there should be about 33,120 cases of childhood stroke every year, of which approximately 15,840 are brain haemorrhages.

Haemorrhagic stroke in children is devastating, with approximately 25% of cases ending in death, and 42% of those who survive have to live with significant disability.

Fact #5 : Vaccines Cannot Cause A Brain Haemorrhage

Just in case there is any doubt – no, vaccines cannot cause a brain haemorrhage.

No matter how magical you believe vaccines are, they cannot go into your brain and cause an artery to burst.

Brain haemorrhages are often caused by trauma, but this is unlikely since Bill did not get hit on his head with a hockey stick.

Therefore, it is likely that he may have an aneurysm or even an arteriovenous malformation (AVM), both of which can present without symptoms for a lifetime, but can suddenly burst.

Fact #6 : Unknown If Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that she died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Casey Barr, who claims to live around the corner from Rai-Lèyah, claimed that Rai-Lèyah was unvaccinated. But frankly – there is no way to know for sure, unless her family reveals her vaccination status.

Rai-Lèyah could very well be unvaccinated, as the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Bill Wolfson Lianie : Sudden Death NOT From Vaccine!

14 year-old hockey trainee Bill Wolfson Lianie fainted and died suddenly after having a shower.

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out why he did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine!

 

Claim : Bill Wolfson Lianie Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that 14 year-old Bill Wolfson fainted and died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists immediately claim that the student and hockey trainee died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Dr. James E. Olsson : Sarawak Hockey Player Undergoing Training in Ipoh Dead at 14… Suddenly collapsed…

Had a seizure and died in the tub. Probably drowned. So sad.

Bill Wolfson Lianie : Sudden Death NOT From Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Bill Wolfson Lianie Died Of Brain Haemorrhage

Bill Wolfson Anak Lianie – a 14 year-old student from SMK Penrissen in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia – died suddenly on Sunday, 6 November 2022.

He was one of the trainees at a two-day hockey training camp in Ipoh, Perak for goalkeepers, under the Malaysia National Hockey Development Programme (NHDP).

Bill just had a morning shower with his teammates at the Raja Ashman Shah Academy, when he complained of feeling uneasy and faint. He suddenly collapsed in his room at about 7 AM.

NHDP staff members performed CPR on Bill, before an ambulance rushed him to the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital. But despite the efforts of doctors there, they could not save him and he was pronounced dead.

An autopsy was conducted, and it revealed that Bill Wolfson Lianie died of a brain haemorrhage. He did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : Bill Wolfson Lianie Was Healthy

Malaysia’s longest serving hockey goalkeeper, S Kumar, met Bill Wolfson Lianie while conducting a goalkeeping skills clinic there on Saturday – the day before Bill died.

That was when he took this photo with Bill Wolfson Lianie, who wanted to emulate the veteran goalkeeper.

By all accounts, Bill Wolfson Lianie was healthy during the hockey camp, up until he suddenly started feeling uneasy on Sunday morning.

S Kumar said that when he found out, he was left fighting back tears thinking about the single mother losing her only son. It also brought back painful memories of his 3 year-old son, Harshenn who died from a fever in 2015.

Another Sarawakian athlete, Stephanie Sim, also died from a stroke earlier this year. Like Bill, she was perfectly healthy until she suddenly collapsed and went into a coma.

Read more : Did Sukma Athlete Stephanie Sim Die From Vaccine Stroke?!

Fact #3 : Brain Haemorrhage Occurs Suddenly

A brain haemorrhage (also known as a cerebral haemorrhage) is a type of stroke that occurs when an artery in the brain ruptures and causes a loss of blood supply to the affected part of the brain.

The blood that pools in the brain not only increases pressure on the surrounding tissues, it irritates and causes them to swell as well – a condition known as cerebral oedema.

The pressure from the pooled blood (known as a haematoma) further cuts off blood supply, and kills even more brain cells. If not quickly removed or relieved, brain herniation may occur, eventually killing the person.

A brain haemorrhage is a sudden and extremely serious medical emergency that quickly results in the person losing consciousness and collapsing – precisely what happened to Bill Wolfson Lianie.

Fact #4 : Vaccines Cannot Cause A Brain Haemorrhage

Just in case there is any doubt – no, vaccines cannot cause a brain haemorrhage.

No matter how magical you believe vaccines are, they cannot go into your brain and cause an artery to burst.

Brain haemorrhages are often caused by trauma, but this is unlikely since Bill did not get hit on his head with a hockey stick.

Therefore, it is likely that he may have an aneurysm or even an arteriovenous malformation (AVM), both of which can present without symptoms for a lifetime, but can suddenly burst.

Fact #5 : Dr. James E. Olsson Died In 2006

Many of these fake news on sudden deaths being caused by COVID-19 vaccines are being propagated by a Twitter user who calls himself Dr. James E. Olsson.

That is a fake Twitter account, because the real Dr. James Eric Olsson died on July 24, 2006.

It has been pointed out by medical professionals many times that the person controlling this fake Twitter account has little to no knowledge of science or medicine, making many perplexing mistakes in his posts.

The occasionally odd grammar use also suggest that English may not be the first language of the person controlling the fake Dr. James E. Olsson account.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Athletes Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing athlete deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next athlete tragedy…

Did Sukma Athlete Stephanie Sim Die From Vaccine Stroke?!

Did 19 year-old Sukma athlete Stephanie Sim die from a stroke caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Stephanie Sim Died From Stroke Caused By COVID-19 Vaccine!

People are starting to claim that 19 year-old Sukma athlete Stephanie Sim Shu Ming died from a stroke caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Many are also sharing her news in anti-vaccination groups and websites, as “another example” of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) from the vaccines.

BAAM 💥endnu en, må af ‘ukendte årsager’ og helt ‘pludseligt’ forlade os blot 19 år gammel 😌

BAAM 💥another one, must for ‘unknown reasons’ and completely ‘suddenly’ leave us just 19 years old 😌

The Sarawak shooting community is saddened by the loss of Sukma shooter Stephanie Sim Shu Ming who passed away on Tuesday evening. Stephanie, 19, suffered #SuddenAdultDeathSyndrome #SuddenDeath

Rip… sudden deaths among young people r becoming common since mid of last year

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) ? #Vaccines

No Evidence Stephanie Sim Died From Stroke Caused By COVID Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Stephanie Sim Died From A Stroke

19 year-old Stephanie Sim Shu Ming suffered a stroke on Thursday, June 16, 2022, and went into a coma.

She was hospitalised at the Sarawak General Hospital, where she passed away on Sunday, June 19, 2022. She was buried at the Nirvana Memorial Park in Bau on Friday, June 24, 2022.

Sarawak State Youth, Sports and Entrepreneurship Minister Abdul Karim Hamzah confirmed that Stephanie’s cause of death was a stroke.

Stephanie Sim did not die from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), also known as Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

Fact #2 : There Are Thousands Of SADS Deaths Every Year

To be clear, Stephanie Sim died from a stroke, not Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).

But I would like to point out that SADS was first documented in 1977, and occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year.

In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

Fact #3 : Stephanie Was Healthy + Well Earlier

There is no evidence that Stephanie was suffering from any vaccine adverse effects like myocarditis or VITT.

There would have been very noticeable symptoms like breathing difficulties, chest pain, bleeding tendencies, etc. and she wouldn’t be able to train properly.

Yet she trained with the Sarawak Sukma shooting squad just days ago – on Saturday, June 11, 2022.

Read more : Did Hundreds Of Athletes Die Of COVID-19 Vaccine Effects?!

Fact #4 : Her Vaccination Status Is Unknown

It is unknown if Stephanie Sim was vaccinated against COVID-19. She did not publicly mention her vaccination status, and neither did her family.

Despite the high adult vaccination rate of some 84%, COVID-19 vaccination is not mandatory in Malaysia. A significant number of people in Malaysia remain unvaccinated.

While it is very likely she was vaccinated, we simply do not know if she received the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

If Stephanie Sim was vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received her vaccine doses last year – at least half a year ago.

She cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up sudden, unknown deaths to the vaccine, death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Infections Cause Myocarditis + Blood Clots Too!

What anti-vaccination activists won’t tell you is that COVID-19 infections also cause myocarditis and blood clots in the cerebral vein too.

They also won’t tell you that the risk of developing cerebral vein blood clots is 170X higher with a COVID-19 infection, than it is with the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Cerebral Vein
Thrombosis Risk
Per Million
People
Difference
Patient with COVID-19 207 +8,525%
AstraZeneca Vaccine 3.6 +50%
Normal Population 2.4 Baseline

They also won’t tell you that the risk of developing myocarditis is hundreds of times higher with a COVID-19 infection, than with three doses of any COVID-19 vaccine!

Myocarditis

3x AstraZeneca 2.1 +1.4x Baseline -0.2x
3x Sinovac 1.5 Baseline -0.3x -0.4x

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Fact #9 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity death…

Did Bruce Willis Get Aphasia From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did Bruce Willis get aphasia seven days after receiving the second dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Bruce Willis Got Aphasia From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Almost immediately after news broke that Bruce Willis was retiring after his aphasia diagnosis, people started claiming that he got his aphasia from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine!

Here are a few examples circulating on social media. Please head to the next section for the facts.

General Thomas McInerney : Actor Bruce Willis has sudden health condition issues. Vaccine strikes again?

Hmmm… Bruce Willis’ retirement…🤡🤡🙏🏻🙏🏻

Aphasia seven days after second dose of an mRNA-based SARS-CoV-2 vaccine – PMC

Aphasia which Bruce Willis is suffering can be caused by a stroke, blood clot, brain tumour all adverse reactions from the vaccines.

Bruce Willis is stepping away from acting because of Aphasia. FYI Aphasia is one of the side effect of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Read more : Did Bruce Willis Get FT Dementia From Vaccine?!

 

Truth : Bruce Willis Did NOT Get Aphasia From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame a celebrity’s death or malady on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Yet again, these antivaxxers are wrong, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Evidence Bruce Willis’ Aphasia Was Caused By Vaccine

First, let me start by simply pointing out that there is ZERO EVIDENCE that Bruce Willis’ aphasia was caused by the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, or any vaccine for the matter.

The Willis family did not make that claim, stating simply that “Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities“.

Those making the claim are simply conjuring it out of thin air, without evidence.

Fact #2 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Cause Aphasia

Aphasia is not a disease, but a symptom of damage to the part of the brain that handles speech and language.

There are many causes of aphasia, but the most common cause is a stroke (cerebrovascular accident) on the left side of the brain.

It is also commonly seen with severe head injury, a brain tumour or progressive neurological conditions like dementia.

However, COVID-19 vaccines do not cause aphasia, because they do NOT damage the brain.

Read more : Did Foo Fighters Drummer Taylor Hawkins Die From Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : No Evidence Willis Got His Second Dose Recently

The claim that he received his second dose just 7 days before his aphasia diagnosis does not appear to be backed by any evidence.

While Bruce has not revealed his vaccination status, he has been extremely prolific, participating in 15 films since 2021.

There is no vaccine mandate for actors, but producers can mandate vaccinations as a condition for participating in their movies.

As acting in at least some of these movies will require him to be fully-vaccinated, he was very likely fully-vaccinated since early 2021.

Fact #4 : Pfizer AESI List Are Not Side Effects

Many antivaxxers point out that aphasia is in the 9-page AESI list that they claim is evidence of side effects caused by the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

The truth is – the “List of Adverse Events of Special Interest” is actually just a generic list of adverse events that Pfizer look for when vaccinated people send in their reports through VAERS or the Yellow Card systems.

These adverse events are NOT vaccine side effects, because they include COVID-19, other communicable diseases, as well as manufacturing and lab testing issues.

Even though Pfizer investigated all reported adverse events in the list, they found no new safety concerns / risks.

Read more : Why Adverse Events of Special Interest Are NOT Side Effects!

Fact #5 : mRNA Vaccine Did Not Cause Aphasia After 7 Days

Anti-vaccination activists are quoting a 2021 paper (Aphasia seven days after second dose of an mRNA based SARS-CoV-2 vaccine) as evidence that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines cause aphasia after 7 days.

It looks like they either did not read the paper, or they intentionally chose to mislead you on what it said.

The paper reported on a SINGLE case of a man who developed aphasia 7 days after receiving the second dose of his mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.

The cause of his aphasia was not the vaccine, but intracerebral bleeding. The man suffered a haemorrhagic stroke – a common cause of aphasia.

Not only is it just a single case, there is no evidence the mRNA vaccine caused the stroke, thereby leading to the aphasia.

The paper also noted that the man’s aphasia “resolved almost completely within a few days“.

Fact #6 : Millions Of People Develop Aphasia Every Year

Aphasia is not a new disorder. It is as old as mankind itself, affecting people long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Globally, millions of people suffer from aphasia, with strokes alone responsible for 5 million new cases of aphasia every year.

Bruce Willis joins about a million other Americans who currently suffer from aphasia in the United States.

Fact #7 : Willis Had Cognitive Issues Long Before COVID-19 Vaccines

Directors, producers and actors who worked with him, Bruce Willis, have come out to say that they noticed his cognitive issues since at least June 2020 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were approved, or made available.

During the production of the movie, Out of Death, director Mike Burns relayed instructions to his screenwriter to cut “about 5 pages” off Willis’ script in a June 2020 email, and realised why when he met Willis for the first time.

I could see it firsthand and I realized that there was a bigger issue at stake here and why I had been asked to shorten his lines.

Then in October 2021, Burns would meet Willis again on the set of Wrong Place. Despite being told that Willis was “way better” and “a whole different person”, he noted :

I didn’t think he was better; I thought he was worse. After we finished, I said: ‘I’m done. I’m not going to do any other Bruce Willis movies.’ I am relieved that he is taking time off.

Bruce Willis had cognitive issues while filming Out of Death

Other industry insiders claimed that Willis began using an earpiece with another actor, Adam Huel Potter feeding him his lines.

Sometimes, Bruce Willis “looked so lost” and had difficulty understanding why he was on set. Once, he asked the crew on set :

I know why you’re here, and I know why you’re here, but why am I here?

Willis’ assistant Stephen J. Eads would advise filmmakers to finish shooting his scenes by lunch, and let him leave early.

All that happened in 2020 – long before the first COVID-19 vaccine was approved, and certainly long before COVID-19 vaccinations began.

Fact #8 : Willis Had Cognitive Issues Long Before COVID-19 Pandemic

Producer and writer, Joe Russo also stated that Bruce Willis had been suffering quietly (from aphasia) for years, including during the filming of his movie, Hard Kill, which was in production SIX WEEKS before the pandemic.

In fact, Bruce was already suffering from cognitive issues as far back as the movie, Glass – which was filmed from 2017-2018.

Bruce seemed a little confused at times and needed a little more help with his lines. This was the first time that I had heard anything about his health.

At that point it seemed that he was a little off. We thought it could be anything from aging to maybe even being a little drunk — common mistakes that people make when seeing the first signs of anything like dementia — to just not wanting to be there.

In reflection, Bruce may have been struggling with all of this back then.

As many Hollywood insiders have revealed, Willis had been suffering from cognitive issues which got progressively worse for at least 5 years, if not longer. It is therefore absurd to blame the COVID-19 vaccine for his aphasia, or underlying condition.

Don’t risk your life, or your family’s lives, on the bad science and misinformation promoted by these anti-vaccination activists.

Protect your family and yourself by vaccinating against COVID-19!

Did Dr. Ann Tan Get A Stroke From Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine?

Did renown fertility specialist Dr. Ann Tan get a stroke from the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine?

Find out what’s the latest viral story on the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, and what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2021-04-06 : Added clarification of Bun Ngok Fong’s relationship to the family

Originally posted @ 2021-04-03

 

Claim : Dr. Ann Tan Suffered A Stroke From Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine!

On or just after 25 March 2021, Bun Ngok Fong posted a message on Facebook about his cousin – the renown fertility specialist Dr. Ann Tan of Singapore.

He has since deleted it, but People’s Power Party founder Goh Meng Seng copied and reposted it, while others shared the post in WhatsApp where it went viral :

Dr Ann Tan now warded in ICU of Mount E for brain haemorrhage after taking the vaccine. Confirmed by her cousin’s FB post:

From the FB page of Bun Ngok Fong:

Warning against the Pfizer vaccine.

 

Truth : Dr. Ann Tan Did Not Get Stroke From Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine!

We looked into the matter, and the many claims Bun Ngok Fong made in this Facebook post, and here is what we know so far…

Claim #1 : Dr. Ann Tan Suffered A Brain Haemorrhage
Verdict : Likely True

On 25 March 2021, the Women Fertility & Fetal Centre of the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore posted this notice, with many messages of concern by her patients :

We therefore believe that something serious had indeed happened to Dr. Ann Tan.

Naturally, the hospital will not reveal any details of her condition. We will only know for sure if and when her family publicly announces what had actually happened.

Claim #2 : Dr. Ann Tan Is Bun Ngok Fong’s Cousin
Verdict : False

In his now-deleted Facebook post, Bun Ngok Fong claimed that Dr. Ann Tan is his cousin.

However, a friend of the family and Mount Elizabeth Hospital itself clarified that he is not related to their family :

The doctor’s family has also confirmed that the writer is not related to them and has written to Facebook to have the post removed.

Goh Meng Seng shared Mount Elizabeth Hospital’s clarification, but kept a screenshot of Bun Ngok Fong’s post up.

Bun Ngok Fong (left) and Goh Meng Seng (right)

Claim #3 : Her Brain Haemorrhage Was Due To The Pfizer Vaccine
Verdict : Likely False

Bun Ngok Fong claimed that she suffered a “brain haemorrhage” about “a week or so” after taking the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

The Pfizer vaccine is not known to cause an intracerebral haemorrhage. It is known to cause a rare anaphylactic reaction, probably from the PEG (Polyethylene glycol) used to create the lipid nanoparticles that protects the mRNA vaccine.

Only one 60 year-old Japanese woman was known to have died from a brain haemorrhage three days after receiving the Pfizer vaccine. Even that case has not been confirmed to be related to the vaccine.

Tomohiro Morio, a doctor advising the government, said, “The brain haemorrhage that is suspected as a cause is relatively common among people from their 40s to their 60s, and at this time, based on examples overseas, there does not seem to be a link between brain haemorrhages and the coronavirus vaccine.

The doctors treating Dr. Ann Tan will know if her intracerebral haemorrhage was due to other causes like a ruptured aneurysm or AVM (arteriovenous malformation).

This incident also happened at least “a week or so” after her vaccination, and is unlikely to be related to the vaccine. Even so, we should not jump to conclusions until we know more.

The opinion of this man (who is apparently living in Vancouver or Hong Kong) is not substantiated by any evidence whatsoever.

In addition, the Mount Elizabeth Hospital labelled his claims as untrue :

We are aware of a post circulating on Facebook, alleging that one of our doctors had a severe reaction a week after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.  We wish to clarify that the allegations in the post are untrue.

Claim #4 : The Pfizer-BioNTech Vaccine Is Problematic
Verdict : False

Every vaccine comes with a certain amount of risk. As mentioned earlier, a small number of people will get a severe allergic reaction after vaccination.

However, the claim that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is “problematic” is false.

The Pfizer clinical trial data, based on over 40,000 people, showed that it was both safe and effective. The biggest issue identified was a rare anaphylactic reaction to the vaccine – just 11.1 cases per million doses.

Not only is this extremely rare, it can be easily treated with an intramuscular injection of epinephrine. That’s why people are asked to stay 30-60 minutes after getting their Pfizer vaccines.

As of 1 April 2021, over 628 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered, and a substantial number are of the Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine, with very few cases of anaphylaxis.

Claim #5 : The Media Is Concealing The Risks
Verdict : False

Did you know you can actually download the FDA Briefing Document of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine?

It gives you uncensored details of their clinical trial data, so what is there for the media to conceal?

The media makes a good scapegoat for conspiracy theorists who dislike how the media consistently debunk their fake news and false narratives.

The media, for their part, are not perfect. They report on every post-vaccination death or hospitalisation, even if it has not been established that the vaccine is the cause.

Instead of shunning the media or putting them on a pedestal, apply critical thinking and wait for the actual research results.

Claim #6 : Pfizer CEO Declined To Take The Vaccine
Verdict : False

In 14 December 2020, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla told CNBC that “he and other executives will not cut the line“, as there were limited doses available and the CDC had recommended prioritising healthcare workers and long-term care residents.

Antivaxxers and Sinophiles leaped on his statement, calling it evidence he did not trust his own vaccine.

The truth is he said in the CNBC interview that, “As soon as I can, I will. The only sensitivity here, Meg, is that I don’t want to have an example that I’m cutting the line.”

Albert Bourla received his first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine in mid February 2021, and his second shot on 10 March 2021.

Claim #7 : Pfizer Vaccine Is Genetic Manipulation
Verdict : False

Pfizer and Modern vaccines are based on mRNA technology, which means they do NOT penetrate the cell nucleus and therefore, cannot possibly change the DNA within.

mRNA itself is also transient, and is automatically disposed by the cell after being used several times. Therefore, the spike proteins it codes for are only created during that short time, not for a lifetime.

You can read more in our article on the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA technology.

Claim #8 : EU Vaccine Passport To Exclude Russian / Chinese Vaccines
Verdict : False

You can download and read the EU proposal for a COVID-19 Digital Green Certificate. It clearly states that:

  • EU countries must accept other countries’ vaccination certificates “under the same conditions
  • This obligation only extends to EU-approved vaccines
  • However, EU countries “can decide to accept other vaccines in addition” to EU-approved vaccines.

Therefore, this COVID-19 Digital Green Certificate will allow EU countries to recognise Russian and Chinese vaccines that have not been approved by the EU.

COVID-19 vaccines from Russia, China and other countries can also seek approval from the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and be automatically qualified for this “vaccine passport”.

Therefore, the claim is categorically FALSE.

Claim #9 : EU Is Promoting Vaccine Apartheid, Forcing Travellers To Use Western Vaccines

Bun Ngok Fong claimed that the EU is promoting vaccine apartheid, and forcing travellers to use Western vaccines.

As we demonstrated above, the EU COVID-19 Digital Green Certificate does no such thing. EU countries can choose to accept Chinese and Russian vaccines.

It is also only fair that the vaccine passport acceptance be reciprocal, and not open only one way.

On the other hand, China resumed processing visas in March 2021, but only if travellers are first vaccinated with Chinese COVID-19 vaccines.

We look forward to Bun Ngok Fong criticising China for promoting vaccine apartheid, and compelling people to get vaccinated with Chinese vaccines, even if they prefer Western vaccines.

We should point out that as of 2 April 2021, the trial data for all four Chinese COVID-19 vaccines have yet to be released publicly.

As we pointed out in our article on choosing COVID-19 vaccines, all approved vaccines will protect you against death and serious COVID-19 disease. But it is really dishonest for Sinophiles to falsely criticise the West for actions perpetuated by China itself.

They should be ashamed of themselves for pushing a false narrative during a global pandemic that has killed over 2.8 million people globally.
