Morning Distort
By MARTIN A. SAMUELS A 35 year old woman complains of weakness of the right side of her face and pain behind the right ear.  She lives in an urban environment and denies any recent illnesses.  She is not vaccinated against COVID-19 but is COVID negative.  What do you think, I was asked at our Morning Report?  Well, I said, it sounds like a straightforward Bell palsy.  The pain around the ear suggests swelling of the VIIth cranial nerve in the facial canal and the stylomastoid foramen, a very common historical point, I opined; so much so that its absence would make me doubt the diagnosis and m...

Conclusion A growing number of today’s children suffer from vaccine damage. Most individuals do not make the connection between health problems and vaccines.

NYC Mayor is Calling a Meeting to Force Vaccinate Under 5′s With Two Dangerous Vaccines
Conclusion Surely, unless the mayor of New York City is a qualified doctor or scientist, he should not be recommending the force-vaccination of children as young as six months, no matter how good his intentions are, especially since the two vaccinations he is recommending are possibly completely incompatible with one another and could possibly lead to multiple child deaths in New York City and across America. This is absolutely unforgivable, and in my opinion, he should be severely reprimanded for his actions. I suggest that the public of America join forces and either attend this meeting in person to voice an opinion or s...
