Lawmakers: CDC May Be Manipulating Data, Underreporting Side Effects by Factor of 5

Western Journal

It has long been obvious that the so-called health “experts” have a political agenda when it comes to the coronavirus.

Two Republican state senators are now alleging statistical manipulation by two government health agencies.

According to The Epoch Times, Oregon state Sens. Kim Thatcher and Dennis Linthicum sent a letter to acting U.S. Attorney Scott E. Asphaug on Aug. 16 asking him to open a grand jury investigation into the reporting of coronavirus statistics by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the FDA.

While the letter is over a month old, the organization behind the petition, Stand for Health Freedom, said it was purposely not released until Sept. 16.

“I’m not sure there has ever been an allegation of government wrongdoing on this scale,” SHF’s Bailey Kuykendoll told Just the News. She said the group wanted to ensure “accuracy and safety” before making the letter public.

In the letter, the lawmakers said a whistleblower alleged in sworn testimony that deaths and injuries recorded in the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System “may be underreported by a factor of five.”

Additionally, the senators said the COVID-19 tests used by the CDC and the FDA could be producing an outsized number of false positives. In particular, they said one of the parameters in the test known as the cycle threshold may be contributing to “inflated numbers of COVID cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.”

“Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Michael Mina told The New York Times in August 2020 that tests with too high of a threshold may detect not just live viruses but also genetic fragments,” The Epoch Times reported.

Mina said the threshold should be 30 cycles at most. In the letter, the senators said the cycle threshold for vaccinated people is currently set at 28 by the CDC.

However, they said the threshold for unvaccinated people is set at 40 by the FDA. The different standards lead to more false positives among the unvaccinated and fewer reported “breakthrough” cases among the vaccinated.

“These facts make it virtually impossible for the public to trust the data they are being presented and the public health policies based upon this data,” the senators said.

On the subject of COVID-19 treatments, the senators said they are “profoundly concerned that the scientific literature continues to provide empirical evidence that safe and effective treatments and management strategies for COVID infections exist but are not being made available to Americans most in need.”

The senators said that while the vaccines are generally “helpful,” the rising number of breakthrough cases shows that they are not a cure-all for every American. For this reason, they said the CDC and FDA should provide other treatment options instead of or in addition to the vaccine.

According to Just the News, the lawmakers named vitamin D and ivermectin as treatments being withheld by the agencies. They said that although these treatments have been proved safe, doctors who prescribe them may be fined or have their license revoked.

Another issue raised by the senators is the propensity of the tests to identify people as COVID-positive even if they have already recovered from the virus.

“The ability to definitively diagnose who is infectious and distinguish them from who is not is paramount in assessing the situation and ensuring the people in immediate need receive the skilled care they deserve,” the letter said.

“This essential aspect of infective spread management is plunged into chaos. Our brave frontline healthcare workers are effectively handcuffed when the PCR tests we are providing them are both inaccurate and unable to distinguish who is infectious from who may have been previously infected but recovered.”

In conclusion, the senators reiterated the importance of our country’s founding documents in the most trying times.

“A crisis does not pre-empt the Constitutions of our country or state,” they said. “A crisis makes the Constitutions more applicable and, when followed in good faith, engenders public trust.”

The Epoch Times said 1,718 Oregonians and 53,032 Americans signed the letter. A grand jury investigation has not yet been opened in response to the petition.

The Western Journal has published this article in the interest of shedding light on stories about the COVID-19 vaccine that go largely unreported by the establishment media. In the same spirit, according to the most recent statistics from the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Effect Reporting System, 7,439 deaths have been reported among those who received a vaccine, or 20 out of every 1,000,000. By contrast, 652,480 deaths from COVID-19 have been reported by the CDC, or 16,101 out of every 1,000,000. In addition, it must be noted that VAERS reports can be filed by anyone and are unverified by the CDC. Thus, as the agency notes, “reports of adverse events to VAERS following vaccination, including deaths, do not necessarily mean that a vaccine caused a health problem.” The decision to receive a COVID-19 vaccine is a personal one, and it is important to consider context when making that decision. — Ed. note

Stranger Saves Teen Hit by Car, Then Disappears After Rescue

Western Journal

Published

on

Lily Irigoyen, 14, from Escondido, California, was headed to Westfield North County Mall with a friend to do some shopping on May 23 when Irigoyen’s life was turned upside down.

As she was crossing a street — using a crosswalk — a driver failed to stop at a stop sign and hit the teenager. She immediately blacked out.

Two other drivers saw what had happened and raced to help. Police later said that a female good Samaritan called 911 and contacted Irigoyen’s family using her cell phone, and a man performed CPR on the teen’s lifeless body — an act that would later turn out to have made all the difference.

The girl’s mother, Isabel Torres, remembers getting the call that broke her heart.

“Her dad called me that she was in an accident and she was airlifted to the hospital,” she told KNSD.

Irigoyen had suffered a long list of serious injuries, including a damaged kidney, a broken arm, a broken leg, a broken hip and a punctured lung. Worst of all, she had also suffered a brain injury.

For three weeks, the teen was in a coma. Even after coming out of it, she had to stay at the hospital for six months, recovering. She finally made it home in August, and her mom has hope that she will recover.

“We’re getting there,” Torres told KNSD. “With time, I think she’s going to get better and better.”

Police later said that, while the driver who hit the teen was determined to be at fault, no criminal charges were made.

After a recent checkup, Irigoyen has a new goal: To find and thank the good Samaritan who saved her life.

“The doctor told her that everything that happened and she mentioned that, thanks to the person that assisted at the accident with the CPR, she always had air to her brain and for that main reason, they saved her life,” Torres explained.

“I just like felt, like happy, just the fact that someone had that kindness in their heart to help me was nice,” Irigoyen added. “I just want to say how grateful I am … that they helped me and that I’m alive now because of them.”



The man is believed to be a dental surgeon, according to KGTV, though he has not yet been identified or stepped forward.

“I think they’re angels,” a teary Torres told KGTV. “God put them there for a reason … I think it’s a great time to find them, and tell them what a great thing they did … What they did was just amazing.”

“They saved me!” said Irigoyen. “They’re the reason I’m here right now … I would just hug them. No words to express how thankful I am.”

Brian Laundrie’s Parents Flee Florida Home as ‘For Sale’ Sign Appears Outside

Western Journal

Published

on

Brian Laundrie’s parents may be looking for a new place to live after weeks of scrutiny on the couple.

Their North Port, Florida, home now has a “For Sale by Owner” sign in the front yard, according to the New York Post.

The house became the site of a media circus, with outlets looking for answers in the death of Laundrie’s fiancee Gabby Petito and the whereabouts of Laundrie himself.

Petito’s remains were found at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. Laundrie was found dead at the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County, Florida in October.

Laundrie’s lawyer announced that he had died by suicide, with a gunshot wound to the head.

As for Chris and Roberta Laundrie, rumors ran rampant that they knew the whereabouts of their son, who was the sole murder suspect in Petito’s death.

The Post reported that neighbors took advantage of the Laundrie couple having the spotlight, with some even renting their front yards to media outlets for up to $3,500 a week in order to pester the pair around the clock.

No charges have been filed against the parents, but their “lack of cooperation” at times during the investigation may have created unnecessary obstacles, according to a North Port police spokesman last month.

According to WNBC-TV, authorities mistook Roberta Laundrie for her son as she drove his Mustang home at the beginning of the manhunt, a move viewed as part of the parents’ resistance to complying fully with investigators early on.

“Other than confusion, it likely changed nothing. We just wanted people to better understand why we thought we knew Brian was in his home,” North Port Police spokesman Josh Taylor said Oct. 29, the outlet reported.

The family’s attorney, Steve Bertolino, has remained firm that his clients fully complied with the investigation, but was talking with law enforcement in November, WFLA-TV reported.

Still, there is no indication as of now that the parents will have charges against them.

If the couple decides to leave their home, they might want to consider changing their names and buying fake mustaches to protect their identity.

Based on the attitude of their current neighbors, it would not be surprising if they were met with hostility wherever they choose to move.

For now, the toughest task will be finding a new owner for the property, which has now become a symbol for one of the most highly followed crime stories of the century.
