How we can allow doctors to speak freely about what is really going on


Guest Post by Steve Kirsch

Anecdotal data from a pediatric cardiologist shows an estimated 100X increase in myocarditis rates. Cardiologists can’t speak out without risking retribution. I have a way to change that… instantly.

COVID-19 Vaccine-Related Myocarditis in Youth Typically Mild - Consumer Health News | HealthDay

I just read a comment on my private “healthcare providers only” substack.

An estimated100X elevation in rate of myocarditis, but nobody will learn of it since cardiologists aren’t going to speak out for fear of retribution

His comment was a private conversation he had with a pediatric cardiologist. The cardiologist is never going to say this in public, to the press, or have his name revealed since his first duty is to his family (keeping his job). If a “fact checker” called the cardiologist, he might either refuse to comment or say “I’m seeing somewhat more cases after the vaccine rolled out.”

Here’s the exact comment that was posted to the private substack:

Recent lunch meeting with pediatric cardiologist friend of mine went like this:

Pre-jab, one or two cases per year of myocarditis. Now, half his waiting room.

Tells parents they are “studying” the causality.

Refers them to infectious disease specialist for discussions on their other children.

Admits he and about 50% of his colleagues know what’s going on but are too terrified to speak out for fear of retaliation from hospitals and state licensing boards.

Other 50% don’t want to know, don’t care and/or are reveling in the cognitive dissonance (like Dr. Harvey [Cohen] at Stanford) and/or letting loose their authoritarian demon.

Good luck with these former colleagues of mine.

The stench is overpowering.

The key sentence is the one in bold. That is gold. Pure gold. I’ll get to that in the “preventable” section below.

From 1 or 2 cases per year to “half his waiting room.” I don’t know the size of his waiting room, but it’s at least two people since he said “half.”

So the rate has increased by: 250 day per year open/1.5 avg cases per year=166X.

But not all the waiting room patients will be unique so we have to discount for that. Since the CDC says most cases are mild, a cardiologist may say “come back if there are problems” or “check back in 6 months” (especially now that they are so busy and hard to book). And his waiting room is likely larger than 2 people so that offsets it.

So estimating a “more than 100X increase” seems reasonable. Especially when you compare that number with other data which shows a much higher rate of increase. In light of that, a 100X increase is more than a reasonable estimate.

The CDC never told us that. They said it would reduce the rate.

Survey suggests 90% of healthcare providers are seeing big increases in myocarditis rates after the vaccine rollout

The anecdote aligns with a survey I did with the full group (asked 1,000 healthcare providers about the myocarditis rates after vaccination). The question was added late after the survey was launched (so only 39 responses), but the answer is extremely clear: it is the exact opposite of what “real scientists” believe based on “science.” All the data I’ve seen is vaccination rates have caused myocarditis rates to skyrocket and put kids in the hospital:

A preventable tragedy… here’s how we can change everything fast

Heart damage in the young will have many long-term consequences and overall life expectancy will drop dramatically. This will destroy millions of lives.

If the 50% of doctors who are afraid to speak out are allowed to speak out, that would change everything, wouldn’t it? Almost instantly.

So I have an idea. The medical boards are controlled by the state. Suppose a governor and a Surgeon General instructed the state medical boards that freedom of speech is essential for doctors and that no doctor can have his licensed examined on the basis of anything he says PUBLICLY that is true since that would be a violation of his first amendment rights. Of course, the first amendment says your speech can be limited if you cause harm to others, but cardiologists speaking the truth about what they observe is doing the opposite: it is preventing harm to others.

I’m thinking Florida, and I just left a voice message for my friend Joe Ladapo. He is the one guy in America who could end all this bullshit instantly by some action in his state. I’ll let you know what he says.

There is one clear benefit of vaccination

The only clear benefit to vaccination is that it will allow you to keep your job or attend school in January. This is the key reason for many people.

While there is some evidence that vaccination will temporarily (and negligibly on an absolute basis) boost your immunity against COVID (for about 30 days for Omicron), it will then leave you with a (possibly) permanently damaged immune system for Omicron and other diseases in the long run. It’s a lousy tradeoff. Read this article, if you haven’t already, on the 30-day efficacy of the vaccines.
