This week, Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) president, and Polly Tommey, CHD.TV programming manager, covered the latest headlines on COVID-19, Big Pharma and other issues, including news that California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill that subjects the state’s doctors to discipline, including the suspension of their medical licenses, for sharing “misinformation” or “disinformation” about COVID-19 with their patients.

Polly and Mary also discussed that newly obtained emails shed more light on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) false COVID-19 vaccine safety monitoring statements.

Plus, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it’s barred from releasing the results of autopsies conducted on people who died after getting COVID-19 vaccines, but a drug safety advocate said the agency could release the autopsies with personal information redacted.

Also on tap this week: After realizing his COVID-19 booster shot may have sent his cancer into overdrive, Michel Goldman, M.D., Ph.D., professor of immunology and pharmacotherapy at the Université libre de Bruxelles in Belgium, said going public with the information was the “right thing to do.”

More of this week’s highlights:

  • Dick Cheney, as vice president, was responsible for putting all biodefense research under the auspices of Dr. Anthony Fauci and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, making Fauci the sole decision-maker on biodefense and scientific research. “This is a fantastic article that I highly recommend,” said Mary.
  • OpenTheBooks.com has posted more of the financial disclosures that Dr. Fauci “didn’t want you to see,” including how Fauci’s net worth jumped to $12.6 million between 2019 through 2021 — an increase of $5 million. “It’s too little too late,” said Mary.
  • Earlier this month, Politico published a special report based on four dozen interviews with U.S. and European officials and global health specialists, who admit Bill Gates is running the global COVID-19 response.
  • New York-Presbyterian Hospital pulled a 30-second ad about myocarditis in children after Children’s Health Defense and numerous doctors accused the hospital of normalizing and trivializing the condition. “It’s outrageous to normalize myocarditis in 10-year-olds,” said Mary.
  • A new study by James Lyons-Weiler, Ph.D. and Dr. Russell Blaylock supports the conclusions of a study by Dr. Paul Thomas, published in November 2020 and later retracted after an anonymous reader expressed concerns. “It shows us again that unvaccinated children are healthier than vaccinated children,” said Mary.
  • The Scottish government has ordered the review of neonatal death rates after two spikes over six months. Both increases were larger than what would normally be expected.
  • The United States Army falls 25% short of its recruiting goal. “This is deeply worrying,” said Mary.
  • The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation this month announced $200 million in new funding — part of an overall $1.27 billion commitment in support of “global health and development projects” that include creating a global digital ID system.
  • Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., chairman of CHD this week filed their first wrongful death suit against Merck, alleging the drugmaker’s Gardasil HPV vaccine caused the death of 13-year-old Noah Tate Foley. “This is just tragic,” said Mary.
  • A federally funded study reported a “positive association” between “vaccine-related aluminum exposure” and “persistent asthma” in children 24-59 months old, but the study’s authors were careful to not suggest a causal relationship.
  • The National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded a malaria vaccine trial study that used genetically modified mosquitoes to vaccinate humans. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has close ties to the research. “I don’t think anything good is going to come of this,” said Polly. “Another Bill Gates moneymaking scheme,” said Mary.
  • When it comes to choosing disposable diapers, parents often consider comfort, absorbency and fit — but research suggests parents should pay more attention to the materials and ingredients, including toxic chemicals that could harm babies and toddlers.
  • Children in the U.S. are being plied with powerful drugs to treat mental health concerns, but the medications don’t get to the root of the problem and often create new problems of their own — symptoms that are then treated with more medications. “This is truly treating children like lab rats,” said Mary.
