Quick Hits On A Mental Health Morning

Finland has joined Sweden and Denmark in suspending the use of Moderna’s injection on men under 30 years of age. That’s to prevent “rare but harmful side effects.” Such as permanent heart damage. Zerohedge has the story—this is three countries now.

I can accept that permament heart damage as a side effect is “harmful”. Next question: Just how “rare” is this? Does permanent heart damage as a side effect occurring in 1/100 injected people meet a legitimate medical definition of “rare”?

Karl Denninger addresses this issue based on a new paper co-authored by the redoubtable Peter McCullough—Stop This NOW. This is one of KD’s better written posts—focused. To entice you to read the whole post, consider this:

While this paper [McCullough’s] describes a specific risk with regard to myocarditis in young people the larger issue of cardiac events must not be ignored.  While it is certainly true that it in healthy young people the risk from Covid-19 infection itself is minuscule and thus appears on the data to be outweighed by the risks of the jab even without accounting for incomplete reporting in my opinion the 900lb Gorilla in the china shop does not simply lie there.

Here’s what he’s leading up to:

PS: Want to talk about how the government can materially cut Medicare (and Medicaid, for people in nursing homes with no money) expenses?  Give the above some thought.... you have to make it to 65 to collect anything, you know...

Finally, do yourself a favor if you haven’t already. Tucker Carlson ran yet another blockbuster monologue last night. This time it dealt with the War on Parents, but it’s a wide ranging social commentary, as well:
