For the first time, the US government has compensated individuals who suffered adverse reactions from Covid-19 vaccines. The Department of Health and Human Services' Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) has approved nearly 1,000 compensation applications, rejecting only 10%.
Is this a tacit admission that there is such a thing as vaccine injury?
CICP has developed a fund to compensate for injuries from the Covid-19 vaccine and all vaccines developed and administered under the 2005 Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act. According to The Epoch Times, some payouts include:
“One person who suffered severe allergic shock received $2,019, according to the agency, the Health Resources and Services Administration. One person who suffered heart inflammation, or myocarditis, received $1,582. Another who suffered myocarditis received $1,032.”
These payouts include reimbursements for medical expenses and lost employment income.

Elon Musk issued a dire warning about artificial intelligence this week, saying that it is a threat to the public and is quickly leading to the singularity, a point in which technology is in control and humans are not.
Musk says that this future would be like the movie Terminator only, he says, it won’t happen exactly like that.
Musk said that Google’s founder Larry Page wants technology to act as a God and that when Musk questioned this, Page called him a “speciest.” Meaning someone who favors human survival over other species’ survival. Isn’t that human nature?
When you compare this to the letter issued last month by Bill Gates, it gives us two polar perspectives. One man (Gates) thinks that AI could eventually decide humans are a threat and work against us but that the benefits outweigh the risks, so, onward! The other man (Musk) thinks that the government must regulate AI before this happens.
What do you think? Should we think this through before we no longer have the option?
A new study finds that there is not enough evidence to suggest that bodily gender transition helps people with gender dysphoria.
Activists and politicians call this “gender-affirming care.” It means affirming that someone’s gender is different than their biology and approving biopharmaceutical drugs and surgery to alter the body to appear like the other gender. Many European countries have concluded that medical intervention is risky and that the benefits do not outweigh the risks. A new study validates that.
“The conclusions of the systematic reviews of evidence for adolescents are consistent with long-term adult studies, which failed to show credible improvements in mental health and suggested a pattern of treatment-associated harms. Three recent papers examined the studies that underpin the practice of youth gender transition and found the research to be deeply flawed. Evidence does not support the notion that “affirmative care” of today’s adolescents is net beneficial.”
The authors conclude that this is a high-stakes debate and it should not come at the expense of using experimental methods on children. Instead, “the field must stop relying on social justice arguments and return to the time-honored principles of evidence-based medicine.”
