WITH so many statistics being hidden and effectively censored, it is unwise for unqualified people like me to say categorically this or that is happening. However common sense still prevails, and if there is a surge in deaths or illness by a significant percentage, and if there are other indicators of disruption to ‘normality’, one has to draw the conclusion that something must be causing it, and whatever that something is, with no official explanation forthcoming, it is being withheld from the public.
That judgement was reinforced for me some weeks ago when a US Army flight surgeon testified in a federal court that she had been ordered by high-level command not to discuss the controversy over Department of Defense data indicating a massive spike in serious injuries and illnesses among military personnel when the vaccines were rolled out in 2021. Dr Theresa Long, of the US Army Flight School at Fort Rucker, Alabama, testified with two other military flight surgeons, Lt Col Peter Chambers and Col (Ret) Stewart Tankersley. She said she had been regularly contacted by military personnel who had been injured by the shots, and that most were pilots, who ‘have to meet one of the highest fitness standards’. Amid the pressure to get vaccinated, Long said, an atmosphere of low morale prevailed in which there had been at least two suicides.
More recently in interviews with the Defender, pilots injured by Covid-19 vaccines say that despite what they describe as a ‘culture of fear and intimidation’ they feel compelled to speak out against vaccine mandates that they say have robbed pilots of their careers — and in some cases their lives.
A letter, hand-delivered in December 2021 to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), US Department of Transportation, US Department of Justice (DOJ), and CEOs and legal counsel of major US air carriers (American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Delta Airlines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines) pointed out the unique risks from vaccines pilots face as well as the significant number of vaccine injuries and adverse effects involving pilots recorded, that in some instances have forced pilots to stop flying.
When adverse reactions to the injection are reported (if at all) it is usually only the first 28 days after the injection that is referred to. This data is alarming enough. In the UK alone more than 27,000 acute cardiac arrests have been reported, more than 4,000 pulmonary embolisms and deep vein thromboses, and nearly 3,500 seizures, within a sum total of some 1.5million adverse reactions. Though authoritative scientific reviews of the data show that vaccines have mid- and long-term adverse effects as well as immediate ones, there appears to be little or no monitoring of them.
That life assurance companies are already reporting far higher claims for the first nine months of 2021 compared with the whole of 2020, and have noted ‘the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business’, primarily working-age people of 18 to 64, is suggestive of a longer-term impact. Germany’s largest statutory health insurance fund has reported a frequency of vaccination complications seven times higher than had been indicated for the year as a whole, predicting continued high levels of these deaths for some time.
Why? Is there a root cause?
Last summer when a story flashed on to the internet after four or five British Airways pilots suddenly died, the obvious explanation doing the social media rounds was the Covid vaccine. The speed with which it was denied – rather than addressed or investigated – by BA, zealous ‘fact checkers‘ and even BALPA, the airline pilots’ association, should have sent out warning signals. BA, under pressure, issued a disingenuous statement not saying what the cause was, but not denying the obvious link to the vaccine and refusing to say whether the pilots had been vaccinated or not.
Predictably the mainstream media failed to follow up, perhaps so as not to upset the Government’s line that the ‘vaccine is so safe’. Not one MP raised the question about these deaths in the House of Commons. The story disappeared.
That’s until the last few weeks when a new story surfaced on the internet about a surge in pilot deaths in 2021. In that same year as the vaccine mandates were imposed and in full force, a blogger known as ‘Call me Stormy’ claimed 109 airline pilot deaths were reported by their families to the US Air Line Pilots Association’s (ALPA) In Memoriam page compared with six in 2020 and just one in 2019.
Sally Beck, an experienced journalist who writes for TCW, asked ALPA for the link to their In Memoriam page published in Oct/Nov 2021 ‘which no longer appears to be there’ and for the source of the figures. After some nudging came this response.
‘Hi there. That info re: the pilot death was not accurate and irresponsibly misleading. Here is the statement we issued in Dec when this first came up.’
Since this did not answer her question nor confirm the numbers they did report compared with previous years, Sally wrote back with the following question:
‘Could you please give me the actual numbers for those years and let me have a link to the page that was referred to, or a screenshot.’
Back came their reply: ‘It is not our practice to release the information of our In Memoriam section of our member magazine. We have nothing more to contribute beyond the statement we shared earlier.’
I leave it to readers to make of that what they will. We remain in the dark.
In the US, where the airline industry is far larger than UK, President Joe Biden mandated all pilots and aircrew must have the vaccine. The airlines, notably United, American and Delta, threatened all aircrew with their jobs if they did not get vaccinated in 2021. There is no doubt that air crew very much felt the pressure and some caved in against their better judgment, as Captain Robert Snow powerfully testified here, again just weeks ago.
Joshua Yoder, an airline pilot and co-founder of the US Freedom Flyers discussing this told the US TV host, Stew Peters, that his group has received hundreds of reports from pilots about flying planes while suffering from adverse side effects from the Covid vaccines. He also told of the huge pressure that had been put on pilots to vaccinate by their own unions, giving them nowhere to turn for support. Those who objected, he said, were sacked or put on reduced duties, thus altering their pay scales downwards which, given the reduced number of flights and aircraft being mothballed or sold, may well have suited the airlines.
Biden has since reduced the pressure on the mandates for vaccines, and airlines have backed down too. Could it be they are worrying about the rise in pilot deaths as they anticipate a flight cancellation hell which may continue for several years? Pilots are expensive to train, and usually have a long work life of 35 to 40 years.
And do we, as well as the vaccinated pilots really have something to worry about – is it dangerous if a pilot dies at the controls? When in the air, obviously yes, and this is the reason you have two pilots, the most critical time being just before landing when the airport is in sight. Both pilots are working flat out flying the airplane, monitoring the radio and instruments especially the ILS (Instrument Landing System) glide path, and if the lead pilot had a heart attack or stroke at this point it could be very dangerous indeed.
As to politicians, airlines and unions, we should give them no quarter when the day arrives that they face prosecution.
