Something strange is happening in the American military.
Three military doctors recently released documents showing staggering increases in diseases among military personnel in 2021, Enrico Trigoso reports in The Epoch Times. Compared to the previous five years, female infertility, miscarriages, breast cancer, and anxiety have skyrocketed. The attorney representing these whistleblowing doctors, Tom Renz, met with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) to discuss these anomalies.
The Department of Defense has since disputed this testimony by claiming that the figures from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) used for this comparison were faulty, that the data from 2016 to 2020 was inaccurate.
As some of those involved in this case pointed out, this explanation is absurd. Why would the data from those five years suddenly be deemed flawed when compared to the figures of the past 10 months? Such an action seems suspicious for several reasons. According to Renz:
We spend millions of dollars per year on DMED and people monitoring DMED which is one of the premier epidemiological databases in the world. Accuracy in this database is critical as it is used to monitor for health issues in our troops.
The DoD would have us believe that the DMED database was wrong from 2016-2020 but then magically was corrected in 2021 despite the fact that they had not noticed it was wrong until we pointed it out in our testimony before Senator Johnson.For the sake of argument, let’s assume that the DMED database was indeed correct before the DoD “fixed” the last five years of data and that in the first 10 months of 2021, an explosion of illnesses occurred among our military men and women. What changed? Well, nearly everyone in uniform received the COVID vaccine. As of mid-December 2021, the Department of Defense reported that 98 percent of those serving in the armed forces had been vaccinated.
If Renz and his clients are correct, then clearly that vaccine poses dangers to some people.
On the other hand, let’s assume the DMED data was incorrect for five years, but somehow the data for 2021 was on target. Let’s assume that for five years the DMED vastly under-recorded certain illnesses found among service men and women. Where’s the evidence for the claim of bad data? And what does that say about the competency of those managing the database?
This revelation should infuriate American citizens—those serving in our military as well as the rest of us average folks. We look for truth or at least for some semblance of reality from our government, but once again we are left wallowing in darkness. As has happened so often in the last two years, we no longer know who to trust or what to believe about COVID-related topics.
During this pandemic, our government and the medical establishment have told us that masks are essential for our protection while many independent scientists and medical experts have claimed that masks are mostly worthless. We were ordered to remain six feet apart in public spaces, a made-up figure with no bearing on the disease. We were commanded to lock down schools when children were among the least likely to communicate the disease or become seriously ill. We were told that anti-vaxxers were disease spreaders who could kill Grandma or some innocent shopper at Walmart. We were informed that the vaccines would stop COVID and then that the vaccinated might still fall prey to the virus but would be far less likely to die.
Whatever the truth about the data from the DMED, the reality is that our public health institutions, our government and its bureaucracies, and even many in the medical profession have lost our trust. Their failings, missteps, and, in some cases, their prevarications have left them stripped of all authority.
By their arrogance—I’m thinking of Dr. Fauci, certain governors, and the present administration—their conniving and their attempts to hoodwink the American people, they have burned the bridges of trust.
Too bad for them.
And too bad for us.
