Five years ago, in a riff on the theme of rape, Dos Centavos tackled drug induced harms and the inability of doctors to see, hear or believe the people they put on a poison who end up poisoned.
Dos Centavos was not the only post on this unfolding disaster. Many other posts, like A Call to H*Arms, cover this central element of modern politics, science, and religion. The Harmed are the Stone the Builders rejected. They are the man injured on the roadside whom Popes and Presidents walk past with faces averted and only a Samaritan stops to help.
Dos Centavos is perhaps the most obscure of my many obscure posts. It is reprised below with some alterations and an extension that make it less ambiguous. It is also Part 2 of Here We Stand We Can Do No Other. And finally it links to DD and AA groups on RxISK.
Do I trust you, can I trust the system, to believe me when I say I have been harmed? I have not mentioned the harm before now. There has been no option but to put up with being harmed, to avert my eyes from you when passing, to clean up any mess quietly.
My speaking up now surprises you.
I seemed “reasonable” when others ranted about their harms, were “hysterical” or took drastic action. The consequences to them have made many of us “reasonable”.
(See The Treatment was Great, The Patient Died, Dear Luise, and all other posts on RxISK linked to the Medical Kidnap tag).
I am also wary about fracturing relationships. I have depended on older white men to look after me in the past. I admire a great deal of what they have done not just for me but for others. Much of the world they have created has brought me great joy.
I have no wish to create a divide with people I know, admire, and am inclined to trust, even though others tell me I simply don’t register the “micro-aggressions” coming from across a divide already there.
I hear ever more mention of “trauma”. I am told that an accumulation of setbacks can shorten my life. But neither going into therapy, nor paying someone to help me turn in on myself, nor collectively turning in on ourselves, nor taking pills look like answers to me. Therapy looks like an opium for the masses.
I and others like me need to organize but even though I am black, and female, I am poorly placed to organize, and the Left – the Joe Bidens, Keir Starmers and Emmanuel Macrons – are even less likely to see me than the Right. More likely to squash me underfoot.
The divides between women and men, blacks and whites, working-class and wealthy, some nations and others, are deep-seated. But I am on the wrong side of an even deeper divide. You are fortunate, I am unfortunate. I am stigmatized because the medical sacraments of our day don’t work for me.
And whatever your willingness to reach out to women, blacks, and workers, you flinch from misfortune and from me. You are the cream of society – rich and thick – one of the elect for whom the sacraments work.
It wasn’t always like this. You accepted that all can vote. You abolished slavery. And when you overcame tuberculosis, cholera, and leprosy you seemed to have tamed misfortune.
The Romans said that money doesn’t smell. They took it and you take it whether it comes from women, blacks or campesinos but the Romans wouldn’t take it from lepers, who had to mint their own Dos Centavos as now do I.
You celebrate AIDs now, as though like tuberculosis you overcame it, but this embrace was forced on you by people like me. By the time people like me overcame AIDs, though, history was no longer on our side.
You are now spooked by any questioning of the weapons you once successfully used against misfortune, as though opening the lid of this earthenware vase will loose demons.
In this most delicate of areas, I could trust You once. Now I can’t because whether you are white or black, male or female, from privilege or poverty, you have lost the courage to trust me. This completes my misfortune.
I know that not everyone is believable. I know some of us make things up, and in desperate situations do desperate things. I know that misfortune and adversity don’t make us better or nicer people. But a world in which most of us are not believed can no longer work.
Not being believed diminishes me. Not being able to believe diminishes you. You now contaminate everything you touch, including me.
You trust in the Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine, when it is clear that all the articles about medical sacraments in these journals are Fake News and have been for more than thirty years.
Why do you still trust them rather than yourself or me? Why do you turn to guidelines framed from forgeries?
Hanging together you could, on our behalf, demand the data from the trials of drugs you give me – force on me either literally with mandates or detention orders or much more commonly and dangerously with soft power. When you use force, I can see who the enemy are. When you use propaganda, I have more problems because my friends, and family, become my enemy.
Whatever about helping me, why hang separately, when this can only lead to you being replaced by cheaper prescribers and ChatBots? Why commit suicide?
The greatest source of premature death and significant medical injuries now is not infection, or cardiac events or cancers, or any other illness but you and your colleagues and what you do to me and to us. Now that you have most of us on 3 or more drugs, now that you have children on an increasing number of drugs of all sorts, now that life expectancy is falling, now that reproductive rates have fallen below replacement rates, now that rates of behavioral problems in infants seem to be increasing dramatically, where are you?
Are you waiting for a Leader? Let me tell you what has happened to the Leaders.
Dos Centavos was 5 years ago.
Five Years ago, Jorge Mario Bergoglio went to Chile where there were serious concerns about the sexual abuse of Chilean children by the clergy – All the Better for the Fishes. Up till this visit, and most of the way through it, he appears to have believed that the clergy who protested their innocence needed to be believed rather than the children, now adults, who claimed to have been abused.
At least in some legal systems, this is right. A person is innocent until proven guilty. But in failing to engage with people, with his flock, he was telling those who were abused that they were guilty, criminal, complaining without a warrant.
A cartoon caught the moment perfectly:
If you have faith you will believe in us but for us to believe you we must have proof.
Jorge seems to have recanted and realized his position was not just unsustainable but wrong.
But he has not recanted on the harms he has done and is continuing to heap on people harmed by medicines. He appears if anything to have doubled down on ignoring harms that he personally has made more likely.
The Catholic Church and others have been stridently opposed to abortion, concerned about miscarriages, supposed guardians of the idea that the Kingdom of Heaven has a special place for children.
The following observations are not anti-abortion or anti-anything else, they are a comment on a failure of leadership, a comment on hypocrisy, and a profound betrayal of mission.
Both before and after Jorge ascended to the Papacy, I submitted evidence to Cardinals, Bishops and Jorge himself, pointing to the evidence that SSRIs and other drugs can cause increased rates of birth defects leading to increased rates of terminations of pregnancy, in addition to increased rates of voluntary terminations, likely because of disinhibition, and increased rates of involuntary terminations (miscarriages).
The Church hierarchy has been made aware of the excess of suicides and harms that these drugs cause. Of course Jorge and his cardinals and bishops are not in a good place to evaluate these issues themselves and so they will likely turn to advisors like Ian Hudson and others who embrace a new Religion – See The History of a Medical Psychosis – whose central tenet is to disbelieve anything anyone harmed by a drug says.
Jorge, by inclination or training, seems susceptible to a religion like this. Religion is not just about holiness. It also has a societal function – keeping the herd together is one of the functions of established religions.
Jorge and other cardinals and bishops have been told that:
Against this background, even before we got to see the inner workings of the Pfizer vaccine trial, which support all these points in spades, Jorge’s intolerance of people, who he may hear saying something like ‘My Body My Choice’, is misguided.
The issues here are not a matter of individual liberty but the safety of communities and peoples. Jorge’s tolerance of what currently passes for clinical science is leading to death and disability from polypharmacy on a quite unbelievable scale, with falling life expectancies and reproductive replacement rates.
Jorge and other members of the hierarchy have been told that I have taken these issues to the kind of people – regulators, ministers of health, journal editors, supreme court judges and others – who might advise them on matters like this and none of those approached have so far disagreed with the points above.
Yet when asked by Jorge, either these advisors must speak with forked tongues, or he must have his ears blocked.
Many years ago, the papacy checked out antidepressants and other psychotropic drugs with a bunch of advisers who were mostly likely to have told it that mental illness doesn’t exist – not a message the papacy was ever likely to endorse. One of the advisers asked why the Church didn’t check with Healy on Ghostwriting and Data Access etc. They were told the Church wanted nothing to do with Healy who is clearly hostile as outrageous comments like The Cardinals of Psychiatry show – see Here and Silent Night in the Vatican.
Jorge likely gets better advice about global politics than technologies like drugs and vaccines. Just before he died, David Noble, a Canadian firebrand fingered a bias Western religions have toward technology – an Achilles Heel. Something a Satan can exploit.
Jorge became the first Head of State to mandate the new Gene technologies – forcing his flock to have them.
The evidence the Pfizer vaccine works was based on 0.47% of the people in the trial. If we let the full human body stand for the roughly 40,000 folk in this trial, the approval was based on a Big Toe. This was known before Jorge mandated people to take it.
The statutes require evidence of effectiveness and safety before a treatment can be approved. Effectiveness means works, which ordinarily means saves lives and/or reduces disability. These ‘vaccines’ do neither. Nor do they reduce transmission.
In terms of safety, in the trials more people died or were hospitalized on ‘vaccine’ than on placebo and reporting systems point to hundreds of thousands of people seriously harmed or killed by the vaccine.
In addition, Augusto Roux, whom Jorge knows had been injured on these vaccines before Jorge put a mandate in place, as had some of the papal staff.
Quite aside from the injuries, the trials on which the mandate depends were ghostwritten with no access to the data, and conducted under the auspices of companies with a track record of fraud in conducting and reporting clinical trials.
What does Jorge do? He issues a Silver Euro coin to celebrate the vaccines
Something to collect and store with your indulgences.
Some may think my use of Jorge’s first name rather than referring to him as the Holy Father, or His Holiness, or the Pope, is too familiar, and irreverent.
It is not meant to be irreverent. I am channeling Chekov. In his story, The Bishop, Bishop Pyotr becomes ill. His Bishopness isolates him from everyone, including his mother. Things only change when finally she gets round to calling him Pyotr again.
Jorge, like Pyotr, is a man – he’s just a man. His Office is not going to save us or him. Is not going to intervene even though we have now been wandering in this desert for over thirty years. Is not going to intervene when the people and their leaders start worshipping a Golden Artefact.
It’s the man who can make a difference. And this man has a recent record of recognizing he has been badly wrong before.
This man has also been a champion for the environment. But like pretty well everyone in Green parties and the environmental movement, he fails to see that the younger generation, led by Greta Thunberg and others, who are doing remarkable things to raise our awareness of environmental issues, are polluting themselves with prescribed chemicals to a greater extent that any comparable prior generation in human history.
At present he and others who are so concerned about the environment have a blind spot for the factors shared in common by the environmental and polypharmacy crises we face. Until these are recognized, only a disaster is likely to produce change.
To be continued in even more irreverent mode next week.Share this:

: The Manufacturer’s Insert Is the One Place Where Vaccine Companies Tell the Truth The pharmaceutical industry likes to say that they throw the kitchen sink onto the insert to protect themselves from liability — but a Federal law states “only those adverse events for which there is some basis to believe there is a causal relationship between the drug and the occurrence of the adverse event” are allowed to be listed.
“There’s a lot of science that supports the supposition [that] most of these vaccines, not all of them, but most of them, are causing more injuries and deaths than they are averting,” stated RFK Jr.
Covid’s cockups and conspiracies
Australia wasn’t immune
Those debating whether the deadly schemozzle of pandemic mismanagement that has cast a pall over the last three years was due to a cockup or a conspiracy should abandon binary thinking. All the evidence, from both sides of the Atlantic, indicates that there were both cockups and conspiracies and they came not as single spies but in battalions.
In the UK, the ‘Lockdown files’, a trove of 100,000 WhatsApp messages released by the Telegraph over the last week, provide a portrait of former health minister Matt Hancock as a cruel careerist and a clown better suited to appearing on ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here’, which he did for a fee of hundreds of thousands of pound, rather than running Britain’s pandemic policy.
The liberty of millions of Britons was curtailed based on the whims of decision-makers who, because they were not subject to parliamentary scrutiny, simply claimed they were following the best scientific advice.
Guilt and fear were shamelessly used to enforce the draconian dictates with Hancock writing that he would ‘frighten the pants off everyone’ with a new strain to get compliance.
A fan of Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum (WEF), Hancock wrote that he hoped Covid would propel his career into the next league. He discussed with his advisers how ‘pushing on vaccines’ would be ‘the most politically beneficial thing’ to do. When Dame Kate Bingham who led the UK vaccine taskforce suggested in October 2020 that only people who were ‘at risk’ should be vaccinated, Hancock branded her as ‘wacky’ and ‘totally unreliable’.

This is how they falsified the medical records of the participants in the Pfizer clinical trial covid19, Fernando Polack diagnosed his patients who made complaints about adverse effects with mental health diseases of a constitutive nature. He is not a psychiatrist. This happened
What Really Happened Inside the COVID-19 Vaccine Trials?
At this point, the best metaphor I have come up with to describe what I’ve observed regarding enrolling in the pharmaceutical clinical trial process is that it is akin to entering an abusive relationship. The abuser will initially flatter you and promise you one thing after another in return for your consent to enter their web of deception.
Then, once they have you on board, they will break each promise they made, gradually treating you worse and worse, and gaslighting you into believing that those issues are not really happening.
Finally, once they no longer need you, they will discard you and leave you to pick up the pieces (which is often almost impossible if you have a life-changing medical injury). Keep this in mind as we review what happened in the COVID-19 trials.
As I considered all of this, I could not help but wonder “if this was the best they could do using every possible trick at their disposal to rearrange their data to paint a positive picture of the vaccines, just how bad was the actual trial data?”

A special place in hell for those who did/do believe what people tell them but keep quiet .
My hope is that one day these drugs will be banned altogether .The risk of harm is too great and unpredictable and yet more are in the pipeline – It’s a pipe dream yet there are novel research projects going deeper into understanding the science using plants (as well as sacrificial animals) They are discovering previously unknown similarities between humans and plants. This isn’t to be confused with theories of consciousness . Plants survive by exploring and reacting to the environment but there are pathways in common. Everything has after all has evolved from the same single cell. The findings go way past just recognising that plants take up and are harmed by drugs or can be used for medicines. If knowledge of the mechanism by which plants are harmed is more and more understood by experimentation – could that not be transferred to understanding human bodies and how drugs act and how people are being harmed? The detail in these articles are beyond my understanding but if anyone is interested they are free to read in the journals.

Patients launch legal action against AstraZeneca over its covid-19 vaccine
BMJ 2023; 380 doi: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.p725 (Published 28 March 2023)
Cite this as: BMJ 2023;380:p725
Dozens of patients and families are launching legal action against AstraZeneca over a rare side effect of its covid-19 vaccine.
Lawyers have sent the company pre-action protocol letters, the first step in a legal claim on behalf of around 75 claimants. Some have lost relatives and some have survived with catastrophic injuries following blood clots.
Many millions have had the vaccine without suffering complications but in 2021 the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency confirmed a possible link between the vaccine, known as Vaxzevria, and a rare condition involving blood clots along with abnormally low platelet levels. Those taking legal action have been diagnosed with vaccine induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia.
The claimants are pursuing a two pronged strategy: taking legal action under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 as well as claiming payment under the government run Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme. The scheme has paid out in several cases, but is limited to £120 000 per claim and applicants must prove severe disablement.1 Payment under the scheme does not preclude a claim for personal injury through the courts. Those taking action under the Consumer Protection Act must show that the vaccine was not as safe as the public were entitled to expect.
Peter Todd, a consultant solicitor with Scott-Moncrieff & Associates, one of two lawyers handling claims, told The BMJ that the complications included stroke, heart failure, and leg amputations. He said the technology involved in the AstraZeneca vaccine was “risky.”
Even though the legal claim is against AstraZeneca, the UK taxpayer will have to pay any compensation awarded, under a legal indemnity that the government gave the company early in the pandemic.
In response to a freedom of information request, NHS Business Services, which operates the vaccine damage scheme, revealed that by 6 March 2023 the scheme had received 4017 claims relating to a covid-19 vaccine. Of those which had been dealt with, 622 concerned the AstraZeneca vaccine, 348 the Pfizer, and 43 the Moderna vaccine. Of the 4017 claims, 334 were for a death.
Sarah Moore, a partner in the Hausfeld law firm, whose clients are also taking legal action, said the maximum £120 000 payment from the scheme was “nothing” in cases where the person who was injured or died was a breadwinner. “Many were parents and many were caregivers,” she said.
MPs, campaigners, and families also argue that the scheme takes too long to decide on payments. The number of administrative staff processing claims has recently been increased from four to 80.
Damages for individuals in the court action could be in the millions. Moore added, “We’ve been trying to get the government to reform their statutory scheme. We didn’t want to litigate but the government has forced us into a corner. The only way these families can get compensation is to fight the battle they didn’t want to fight.”
An AstraZeneca spokesperson said the company could not comment on ongoing legal matters, but added, “Patient safety is our highest priority and regulatory authorities have clear and stringent standards to ensure the safe use of all medicines, including vaccines. Our sympathy goes to anyone who has reported health problems.
“AstraZeneca and regulatory authorities carefully record and assess all reports of potential adverse events associated with use of Vaxzevria. From the body of evidence in clinical trials and real world data, Vaxzevria has continuously been shown to have an acceptable safety profile and regulators around the world state that the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks of extremely rare potential side effects.”
