    Combination of a monkey virus with spike proteins and murdered baby cells together with a dash of graphene oxide. Odd that it would not work and instead cause health problems.

    So glad we don’t live in the medieval era where you would sip eye of newt and pickled bats wings with snake oil…. oh wait, actually I would prefer that.

    Paywalled. But as a guess, I would say: “Having it stabbed into you”?

    RT covered it with adverts but no paywall.

    If you are understandably too nervous to click, in case Putin hacks your next election, here’s the crux:

    The researchers discovered that the protein implicated in thrombosis “is capable of forming stable complexes with clinically relevant adenoviruses.” The immune system can confuse blood protein (platelet factor 4) with the virus and release antibodies to attack it. The antibodies and platelet factor 4 can then clump together, triggering blood clots.

    This is the sort of thing that would have been picked up if they did longer testing … but of course they were in a rush to get the product out the door. This kind of risk/benefit tradeoff is perfectly normal, and it happens with almost every new product, the main problem here being the politicized medicine and doctors being instructed to ignore the problems and shut people up when they tried to say something.

    “Extremely rare”
    I find that very hard to believe.
    It’s the narrative that must be adhered to.

    In a headline and six sentences the word “rare” occurs three times.

    Hmmm, sounds a lot like gaslighting to me.

    This is a very handy tool for seeing Murdoch rag articles
