U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., led a roundtable Wednesday in the nation’s capital featuring acclaimed health scientists and other experts whose criticism of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines has drawn wrath, scorn, censorship and punishment from the government and medical establishments.
Among the scientists testifying at “COVID-19 Vaccines: What They Are, How They Work, and Possible Causes of Injuries” were Drs. Peter McCullough, Robert Malone, Harvey Risch, Ryan Cole, Pierre Kory, Paul Alexander and Paul Marik. Others, such as former Wall Street analyst Edward Dowd, have analyzed insurance industry and government data, and concluded the vaccines are the best explanation for a massive increase in excess deaths in younger populations.
Some participants testified of suffering severe, life-changing injuries they link to the COVID vaccine.
See the entire three-hour roundtable in the video at the bottom of the page.
Johnson also asked officials such as Biden COVID adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky and Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla to testify. To no one’s surprise, none accepted the invitation.
The Food and Drug Administration’s handling of the vaccine, however, was addressed by a former senior adviser to the FDA commissioner on drug safety and science policy, David Gortler. He lamented that physicians and pharmacists are delivering the COVID vaccine with no real knowledge of it.
“There have been over 13 billion doses of this vaccine given worldwide,” he said, “and there hasn’t been a single labeling change to the vaccine, because there isn’t a vaccine label.”
In a follow-up to Gortler’s remarks, Dr. Renata Moon, a veteran pediatrician and medical professor in Spokane, Washington, pulled out the multi-folded paper inserted in the mRNA COVID vaccine packaging that is supposed to list the components and possible side effects.
Unfolding it like an old road map, she revealed it is blank – except for in the middle, where it says “intentionally blank.”
“Boom,” Gortler interjected. “That’s the data on which pharmacists and physicians are basing giving the injections.”
Moon asked, referring to the insert: “How can I give informed consent to parents when this is what I have?
Meanwhile, she said, the government is telling her she must call the vaccines safe and effective or risk losing her license.

Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., a practicing physician, showed up during the roundtable at the Russell Senate Office Building and affirmed his support for the scientists and doctors testifying.
Johnson expressed his appreciation.
“I hope that I’ve found an ally here,” he said, “because it’s been a lonely road.”
Johnson has held previous “second opinion” hearings during the pandemic, including one that focused on the testimonies of the vaccine injured.

‘Risking the future’
Dr. James Thorp, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist in St. Louis, noted that the CDC and the FDA typically regard two-fold increases in menstrual issues in relationship to vaccines as a danger signal. But he has conducted studies, based on CDC data, showing increases of as many as 1,000-fold in menstrual abnormalities linked to COVID vaccine compared to the flu shot.
In his clinic, he has seen a “substantial increase” in infertility, miscarriages, fetal death and fetal malformation. The data, for example, show a more than 30-fold increase in fetal deaths linked to the COVID shots compared to the flu shot.
“I want to ask why the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, why the American College of Ob-Gyn and why the Society of Maternal-Fetal Medicine – all of whom I’ve served in a professional capacity, in an outstanding fashion, my entire career – why they are using this lethal vaccine, risking the future of all humanity,” he said.
Thorp has published a review in the Gazette of Medical Sciences of 1,366 peer-reviewed studies “documenting death and destruction after the COVID-19 vaccine.”
There is no comparison, he said, with any other vaccine over the past century. The top three adverse events of the COVID vaccine, based on the studies, were cardiac disease, thrombocytopenia and blood clot.
‘You are on your own’
Dr. Joel Wallskog, an orthopedic surgeon in Mequon, Wisconsin, suffered a career-ending injury after receiving the Moderna COVID shot in December 2020.
“If you have an adverse even after a shot, you are on your own,” he said.
You will have no one to sue, and “you likely won’t be able to find a provider who treats COVID vaccine injuries.”
Further, he said, you’re likely to be “gaslighted” by providers, and if you persist in making your case, you may be diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder.
Dr. Kirk Milhoan, a pediatric cardiologist in Kihei, Hawaii, said the available scientific data, including a study presented at this year’s American Heart Association meetings, indicates the spike protein induced by the mRNA vaccine is “cardio-toxic and causes the heart to be inflamed.”
“I’m passionate for the health of our children,” he said as his voice broke with emotion. “I’m also passionate for young service members that I served for 13 years in the Air Force as a flight surgeon, deployed twice to Iraq.
Milhoan said that for “healthy children and the majority of our war fighters, the data show that at the risk for myocarditis is greater than the benefit of the vaccine products.”
“As a physician who has vowed to do no harm, my opinion is that we should not mandate harm,” he said.
Dr. Robert Malone, who invented the mRNA platform on which the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are based, said the COVID shots were derived from a “gene therapy research program.” The vaccine essentially is a gene therapy “applied for the purpose of an immune response,” he said.
Citing a Stanford study published in early 2022, he pointed out that – contrary to what the public was told – the synthetic mRNA and lipid nanoparticle delivery system in the COVID vaccines does not remain in the shoulder and dissolve quickly after triggering an immune response.
The material travels throughout the body and continues producing spike proteins for at least 60 days, which was the scope of the Stanford study.
The technology, he warned, “is inflammatory, which is a big word for saying it’s toxic.”
See Dr. Malone’s testimony:
Dr. Ryan Cole, a Mayo Clinic-trained pathologist, explained that the SARS-CoV-2 virus “has mutated ahead of our efforts” to bring a targeted vaccine to the market “and it always will.”
“We don’t have a vaccine for HIV 40 years later because it has a spike protein that is always mutating,” he explained.
The Wuhan strain, on which the original COVID mRNA vaccine was based, was long ago “extinct” he said, and the BA.5 and BA.4 omicron variants, on which the new bivalent booster is based, are “almost extinct.”
“We are taking an approach with an infectious agent that is always moving ahead of us,” Cole said.
Dr. Paul Alexander, a former adviser to the U.S. Health and Human Services Department, explained how the COVID vaccines push a process of natural selection that is creating more variants, which he said will keep “emerging one after the other.”
Johnson introduced internist and cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough saying, “I don’t think there is a doctor who has been more persecuted.”
The medical establishment, he said, has used him “as an example to create a level of fear.”
McCullough said there is no scientific support for the vaccines reducing transmission, explaining they provide no immunity in the nose, where the viral load begins. The only hope for any efficacy is that they would reduce severity of disease, but there is no clinical trial data to support that, he said.
“I think it has to be said, the pathway to preventing any more harm is all the vaccines need to be pulled off the market and withdrawn,” said McCullough. “That needs to happen immediately. All the vaccine mandates should be dropped immediately.”
See McCullough’s remarks:
“All the vaccine mandates should be dropped immediately. We need immediate funding for vaccine injury centers of excellence across the US for screening, detection, diagnosis, prognosis & management. …What is at stake here is death.”

Competing with Big Pharma
Dr. Paul Marik, a pulmonary and critical care specialist, recounted how he and other physicians were not allowed to use cheap and effective FDA-approved drugs off-label to treat COVID because “it would compete with Big Pharma.”
Instead they were force to use expensive drugs such as the “toxic” remdesivir. Marik noted that, according to the World Health Organization, remdesivir increases the risk of kidney failure 20-fold.
Johnson pointed out that hospitals were given a 20% bonus for prescribing remdesivir.
Doctors also weren’t allowed to use on-label drugs to treat complications from COVID such as clotting, Marik said. And his hospital – Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia – wouldn’t allow him to use a vitamin C treatment for COVID. He sued the hospital for banning the use of the FDA-approved ivermectin to treat COVID-19.
“We knew in March 2020 that we had a host of drugs that would stop this pandemic. We knew of early interventions. We would have saved hundred of thousands of lives,” he said. “It is a moral and ethical outrage that we were not allowed to save patients.”
Dr. Pierre Kory, one of the chief advocates for the use of ivermectin to treat COVID, said the government and pharmaceutical establishment manipulated trials to show their drugs to be “safe and effective” and drugs such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine to be ineffective.
That was the “proximate cause of the immense loss of life,” he said.
Watch the roundtable:
EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?
Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”
Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
