‘Journalists’ and medical ‘experts’ can cry ‘disinformation’ all they want, but to know why the public is so skeptical, they should look in a mirror.
You have probably heard, by now, about that groundbreaking bit of news that panic-porn pushers so desperately hope for. A tragic bad news anecdote they can use as a dire warning.
With early indicators suggesting Omicron may be far less dangerous than its predecessors, while it is also displacing the preceding variants, the public was beginning to breathe a sigh of relief.
But such ‘sighs of relief’ are bad for business, especially if you are the corporate media, or biomedical companies, or jackbooted politicians leveraging fear for some kind of advantage, whether financial or political. No, no we mustn’t have optimism. That won’t do at all.
Imagine how pleased they were to learn the panic porn could continue apace when they heard that there IS an Omicron case that fits the narrative. A guy in Texas died. And *gasp* he’s unvaccinated!
We don’t know for a fact that they cheered at this news, but it would be very on-brand. But for anyone doing the digging, there’s a problem with this very highly-touted claim. It’s the very same question we’ve been asking our statistics-keepers about from the very beginning of the pandemic. Sure he was infected… but what did he DIE of?
It’s a simple question, really. And when the health officials who had knowledge of the case were asked, they gave an answer you won’t hear on the evening news.
The phone call was posted on journalist Dan Cohen’s Twitter account. Sometimes, social media in our articles has not been displaying correctly across all devices, so we will include a link HERE, and a transcript below for anyone having those issues in this story.

Public officials and media reported that a man in Texas became the first American to die from the Omicron variant. I checked with the Harris County Public Health Department. Turns out that's not true.

Dan Cohen did what journalists USED to do, and he followed up with Martha Marquez, who happens to be from Harris County Public Health. Here’s what that conversation looked like.
(The video opens with two brief CNN accounts of the death of a Texas man in his 50s they have attributed to the new COVID variant. The second one emphasizes his status as NOT vaccinated.)
Martha M: “We can’t confirm that the patient died from COVID, but we can say that he was Omicron positive at the time of his death.
Dan C: So he died WITH COVID but you can’t say that he died FROM COVID.
Martha M: Correct. This information comes from our epidemiologists who are the ones who give the reports. They have to do a very meticulous investigation because you know they do take this very much at heart. They are telling me that they cannot say that COVID was the absolute cause of death.
This dovetails neatly with that hidden video showing us an employee admitting that CNN was manipulating the public with their COVID coverage. This same employee (either on that same video, or one of the others in that series) even used the word ‘propaganda’ to describe CNN’s manipulation techniques… and explained why the COVID recovery rates never get published.
Why don’t we believe ‘the science’? Because the information we’re being fed by the supposedly impartial dispensers of information has been discredited. You’ve been caught too many times either protecting or pushing a lie.
Informed consent requires we have the full scope of known risks and benefits.
If you can’t even tell the truth about something as basic and falsifiable as THIS..? How can the public possibly trust you concerning something far more nuanced and complex like our personal health decisions?
Good on Martha for speaking the truth without taking the claims further than what the data supported. We could use more women who can shoot straight like that.
Inspiring content like this will encourage more such boldness, and more than that, will inspirie living a life worth remembering:
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
