Guilty Conscience? CDC’s Walensky Lets the COVID Cat Out of the Bag

Was it a guilty conscience that prompted Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky to tell the world on “Good Morning America” on Jan. 7 that 75 percent of COVID-19 deaths occurred among those with four or more comorbidities?

If it wasn’t, it should have been.

Four or more? What would the percentage have been for those with a mere two or more comorbidities? Eighty-five? Ninety-five? Ninety-eight?

It couldn’t be more obvious that COVID-19 was a serious danger most of all to those who were very sick in the first place. The obese also had concerns, although that is rarely mentioned because not politically correct. And, alas, sometimes the recently vaccinated.

For that, we all had to be injected, masked up, locked down, and isolated for two years. And they say Jan. 6 is a scandal?

Global corporations have participated in this madness for their own power-hungry reasons, firing their unvaccinated employees. Our large medical institutions have behaved abominably, often motivated by greed or fear of losing government subsidies.

But worst of all by far is what has been done to America’s children as a result. The past two years—and continuing now in many venues—have been the worst case of child abuse in human history.

Unfortunately, that’s not as hyperbolic as it sounds. Think about the numbers and the size of the populations involved.

The pervasive retardation and attendant neurosis of America’s young, indeed millions throughout the world, because they have spent their early developmental years wearing masks and separated from each other, trapped in their homes, staring at computer screens, will be felt for decades to come.

Suicides and suicidal ideation have escalated among the young. What does that say about their futures, not to mention ours? A generation of substance abusers looms.

That many were vaccinated without reason is yet more scandalous. Fortunately, parents are beginning to resist this mass inoculation as warnings of the consequences of mRNA vaccines are being made public by, among others, the estimable Dr. Robert Malone, the actual inventor of the technology.

Who’s responsible for all this? Many sources—Big Pharma, the CDC, World Health Organization, and other governmental and quasi-governmental agencies and the Democratic Party among them, not to mention their unquestioning mouthpiece: the mainstream media—but we all know who is No. 1.

Malone, in a recent email from his substack, alerts us to the latest information about this person or, as he puts it, “more damming evidence on [Dr. Anthony] Fauci’s role in all of this mess.”

“[Washington, D.C., Jan. 10, 2022] Project Veritas has obtained startling never-before-seen documents regarding the origins of COVID-19, gain of function research, vaccines, potential treatments which have been suppressed, and the government’s effort to conceal all of this.

“The documents in question stem from a report at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, better known as DARPA, which were hidden in a top-secret shared drive.

“DARPA is an agency under the U.S. Department of Defense in charge of facilitating research in technology with potential military applications.

“Project Veritas has obtained a separate report to the Inspector General of the Department of Defense written by U.S. Marine Corp Major, Joseph Murphy, a former DARPA Fellow.

“The report states that EcoHealth Alliance approached DARPA in March 2018, seeking funding to conduct gain-of-function research of bat-borne coronaviruses. The proposal, named Project Defuse, was rejected by DARPA over safety concerns and the notion that it violates the basis gain of function research moratorium.

“According to the documents, NIAID [National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases], under the direction of Dr. Fauci, went ahead with the research in Wuhan, China, and at several sites across the U.S.”

Read the rest at the Project Veritas website. It’s worth noting that PV—unlike The New York Times and The Washington Post for years on such things as Trump–Russia collusion—has rarely been proven wrong. In this case, they’ve produced the documents.

It’s likely that, when, as they say, “this bloody war is over,” Fauci’s name will be infamous in history, if it isn’t already because of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s book.

Meanwhile, Alex Berenson, in the invaluable emails from his substack, reports under the following “Internal hospital data confirm a huge increase in patients with vaccine side effects in 2021:”

“Several people with access to different databases provided the figures, on the condition that they remain anonymous, as the databases are proprietary and confidential. All the databases showed a similar increase, ranging from four-fold to more than 10-fold.

“The rise parallels the massive increase in vaccine injuries and deaths reported to VAERS—the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System—in 2021. Over 740,000 VAERS reports were submitted last year, compared to 50,000 in 2020. Of the 2021 reports, 700,000 were Covid related.”

Not a great trend, it’s safe to say. I wouldn’t be in a hurry to take that booster.

For now, we can thank Walensky, guilty conscience or not, for opening the door a crack on the government side. Maybe she should push it open a little wider.
