Decision Gone Bad by the Defender
Making medical decisions is a job most people leave to their doctors, but is that really the best you can do? When doctors are threatened by a climate of one message reporting and the fear of losing licenses, it might be time to think for yourself. Read a story by experts who think that time is now.
This story is a partial reprint from The Defender which is the newsletter of Robert Kennedy Jr.'s organization, Children's Health Defense. The newsletter is free and available to you, but any mention of it on Facebook will find it deleted and you in Facebook Jail. One can only guess why.
I have reprinted a portion of the article on Joseph Keating, a 26 year old healthy male who died from his vaccine booster. The article, published 1/11/22 is written by Megan Redshaw and is available in full from the Defender.
I reprint this information because I believe in truth and medical freedom. Everyone should make their medical decisions based on their beliefs and needs and adding all the facts to that decision is only fair.
Reprinted from The Defender, by Megan Redshaw:
A 26-year-old South Dakota man who died Nov. 12, 2021, of myocarditis — four days after his booster dose of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine — had no idea he was experiencing a rare and supposedly “mild” heart problem after the shot.
Joseph Keating’s only warning signs were fatigue, muscle soreness and an increased heart rate, family members said.
In an exclusive interview with The Defender, Joseph’s father, mother and sister said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has not investigated Joseph’s death.
The CDC also did not contact the pathologist who performed the autopsy or request the documents which confirmed Joseph’s death was caused by the Pfizer vaccine.
According to the autopsy report and certificate of death, Joseph died from severe heart damage from “myocarditis in the left ventricle due to the recent Pfizer COVID-19 booster vaccine.”
Joseph’s mother, Cayleen, said her son was pro-vaccine and worked in an environment where he needed to be vaccinated. According to Joseph’s vaccination cards, he received his first Pfizer shot on March 26, 2021, and the second dose on April 16.
Cayleen said her son, who didn’t experience any negative adverse events after the first two doses, received a third booster dose on Nov. 8, 2021.
This was on a Monday,” Cayleen said. “Tuesday and Wednesday he was fine, but Thursday morning — 72 hours after the booster — he called and said he had a sore throat.”
Cayleen made her son some hot apple cider and he took throat lozenges and went to work, but within two hours he called her to pick him up because he was so fatigued he couldn’t work.
When Cayleen asked him what was wrong, Joseph told her he had some muscle soreness, exhaustion and a sore throat.
“When we googled, ‘what are your reactions to having the Pfizer vaccine,’ a lot of the results say people deal with fatigue, muscle soreness and everything, so we both just brushed it off as reactions to the vaccine and it was no big deal,” Cayleen said.
Joseph slept through Thursday. On Friday morning, he told his mother he would have to call into work again because he was too exhausted to go in. Cayleen visited Joseph and said he appeared to be normal, other than fatigue and muscle soreness.
“He wasn’t really acting sick, just exhausted,” she said.
Cayleen, a critical care nurse of 35 years, took her son’s vitals and noted his temperature was up to 100.2 and his heart rate was elevated to 112. She thought it was related to the fever, so she gave him Tylenol.
Later that day, Joseph texted his mother that his fever was down. By 4:30 p.m., his oxygen was at 100%, but his heart rate was still elevated.
Joseph’s father, William, visited his son around 5 p.m. and they had dinner. William left at 6 p.m. Two hours later their son was dead.
The family knows when Joseph died because of the Apple Watch data they retrieved from his phone. Joseph had an app enabled that measured his heart rate up to the time of his death.
“He went to sit down in his recliner and when we [the family] came the next day we were able to pull up the data from his Apple Watch showing the exact time of his death and exactly what his heart rate was doing the past two hours.
“It showed he was beating at 100s all during the day and after 6 p.m., when he sat in the recliner, his heart rate dropped into the 60s, which was low for Joseph, who always had a resting heart rate in the 80s and 90s — and then it just stopped.”
Cayleen said when they found Joseph the next morning, there were no signs he knew he was going to die.
“He was even having a two-way conversation with several of his friends before his death. The phone and remote control were on his lap,” his mother said.
The family called 911 and detectives came to make sure it wasn’t a crime scene because “26-year-olds don’t just die,” Cayleen said.
When detectives separated Cayleen and her husband for questioning, she told the detectives the only thing she knew was that four days prior her son had received Pfizer’s vaccine and he was having adverse reactions. Four days later he was dead.
Autopsy confirms Joseph died of myocarditis
After Joseph died, an autopsy had to be performed to confirm the cause of death.
“When they first did the preliminaries they couldn’t find anything — his heart looked normal,” Cayleen said. But “the pathologist said he was going to do 22 different slides to see what he could find.”
Meanwhile, Cayleen said she started hearing stories about young males getting myocarditis from COVID vaccines.
“I knew COVID could cause MIS-C [multisystem inflammatory syndrome], but nobody told me the vaccine was giving people myocarditis,” Cayleen said. “There’s a big difference between COVID giving you myocarditis and a vaccine giving you myocarditis and actually killing you.”
“When the pathologist looked at the 22 segments of Joseph’s heart, it showed the vaccine inflamed and attacked his entire heart. There was so much damage … to the heart. It was full multi-focal myocarditis, and it wasn’t just affecting one part of his heart, it was attacking his whole septum and ventricles.”
Cayleen thinks her son developed so much inflammation from the booster that his heart developed a fatal arrhythmia that killed him instantly.
She spoke with several cardiologists who were surprised her son never experienced any type of chest pain.
“The hallmark signs as a parent that would prompt you to seek medical help were not given to me,” Cayleen said. “He didn’t know his heart was racing, or fluttering or becoming A-fib. All he complained about was the muscle soreness and fatigue.”
Joseph’s private physician called the family after his autopsy results were back and told Cayleen if she would have called him and informed him of Joseph’s symptoms, he would have said it was just a side effect of the vaccine.
“If we would have brought him in Thursday or Friday, nobody would have discovered it,” Cayleen said.
Joseph’s sister, Kaylee, said, “My brother felt he wasn’t bad enough to seek medical attention because he wasn’t having any symptoms, it just came out of nowhere.”
“That’s what is so amazing that he didn’t have any chest pain, he didn’t feel his heart flutter, he didn’t have any shortness of breath,” Cayleen said. “I mean two hours before he died he has 100 percent oxygen concentration. It just didn’t show anything outside of an elevated heart rate.”
Cayleen said she took a full set of vitals and her son just didn’t feel sick. “When you’re sick, you’re in bed, but he just never felt that way. He just got into a rate the heart couldn’t keep up with and he died.”
Cayleen said she is thankful an autopsy was performed because it revealed her son died directly from the vaccine and the myocarditis he suffered was from the vaccine.
“It’s documented proof,” Cayleen said. “He died directly from the Pfizer booster.”
CDC ignores reports of death caused by myocarditis
Both Joseph’s family and the pathologist submitted a report to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), but to this day, neither have been contacted by the CDC about Joseph’s death.
“You would think the death of a child from a reaction to a COVID vaccine that’s documented on the death certificate and autopsy, the CDC would have reached out to us immediately,” Cayleen said. “You would think the CDC would have called the pathologist.”
According to the CDC website, the agency contacts people who meet the case definition for myocarditis following mRNA COVID vaccine and have submitted a report to VAERS.
To meet the case definition, people must have had “symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath and feelings of having a fast-beating, fluttering or pounding heart, and medical tests to support the diagnosis of myocarditis and rule out other causes.”
This rules out deaths like Joseph’s, who wasn’t diagnosed with myocarditis prior to death and did not experience the symptoms that would normally fall under the CDC’s case definition.
The CDC website does not state what happens to these cases, but there is no indication they are tracked or included in the CDC’s myocarditis numbers.
Cayleen said the state’s health department also has not investigated her son’s death, as they said they first needed to be contacted by the CDC.
“Nobody wants to touch it,” William said. “I’ve been calling the state health department the last few days and they keep saying they have to wait for the CDC and the facts. I told them the facts are in the autopsy, but they said they had to wait longer.“
As The Defender reported Jan. 6, emails obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Request show the CDC is leaving it up to state health departments to investigate deaths following COVID vaccines, including the death of a 13-year-old boy who died from myocarditis three days after his second Pfizer shot.

When UN-Invited Do Something About It
Apparently it 'Tis the Season
to UN-Invite guests who have made medical decisions
that do not match yours.
It's hurtful and damaging to us as a society.
The UN-invite is now a serious situation that is hurting many. It's happening everywhere. Starting new groups of like-minded people is at least a start in healing the situation. Everyone needs community and a new group of like-minded people seems like the comfort that is needed.
Creating an open and understanding community for a group being shunned is not a bad idea. What we might find is that there are more alike than not alike. We can take pride in our decisions and know that there is still an option for friendship and socialization while thinking freely.
Most every area now has a neighborhood page where one could announce a new group for those who are interested in Un-masked socializing. It's easy to start and anyone can offer an event for the group as it grows.
My personal group invite went on a neighborhood page. It is for anyone who feels comfortable being mask-free. There will be no discussion of medical choices or decisions made. Anyone who joins can host events and so there is no pressure to be the ongonig leader.
These are strange times and we need to react in positive light that will get us to where we intend to go.
Let others help you, while you help others navigate new territory.
The pressure to vaccinate is real,
so why not make sure your
employer shares in the risks.
Employers should be sued if you become
damaged by a vaccine they demand.
If the pressure is on to vaccinate or lose your job, let’s consider being fair. No one knows the ramifications of these vaccines. Adverse effects could take years or decades to manifest. Why not ask for consideration if you agree to the mandate?
Should you be forced to use earned sick leave for medical visits or recovery from a mandated Covid vaccine? Should you lose income if the vaccine threatens your life, sends you to the emergency room or causes you to be hospitalized? Who should cover the cost of co-pays and in the event of death, will benefits be paid to your family?
The pressure is mounting and employers can easily say, “These are our demands,” but they should be willing to back up their confidence in your health with good, old-fashioned money. Let's see how sure they are about their mandate.
According to VAERS, Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System, which is a federal agency of the United States, there are risks. Keep in mind that these figures are voluntary entries and do not reflect the absolute numbers of those actually harmed. Most US citizens don’t even know the system exists and reporting is not mandatory. The figures you see represent about 11 months of vaccines and the numbers are too high for many to risk their health.
THE REAL ANTHONY FAUCI BOOK REVIEW
I am still reading the introduction of
“The Real Anthony Fauci” and I’m already put at peace.
We are not experiencing the end of the world.
We are experiencing the outing of greed.
It’s horrific, but not hopeless.
In just a few pages of very small print, Bobby Kennedy, Jr. reveals the facts in plain English.
The part that gives me hope is that the makings of the current crisis began in 1980. That lets me believe that we can find ourselves again and that this is not a predestine end of life event.
He explains that the CDC owns 57 patents on vaccines and spent 4.9 billion of its 12 billion budget in 2019 buying and distributing vaccines. The NIH owns hundreds of vaccine patents and can profit from the sale of vaccines that it regulates. Meanwhile the FDA receives 45% of it’s budget from Big Pharma in what are called “user fees."
So how does that create pandemic censorship? During the lockdowns the middle class was severely damaged while the most wealthy were able to capitalize. Internet platforms became very powerful entities and began to protect their interests by censoring. “The biggest winners were the robber barons--the very companies that were cheerleading Fauci’s lockdown and censoring his critics,” says Kennedy.
The story begins with Fauci taking over the National Institute and Infectious Diseases, NIAID. This is where the influx of chronic conditions became fertilized to the point they are now common and in critical numbers. Kennedy says it was Fauci’s “subservience to Big Ag, Big Food and pharmaceutical companies left our children drowning in a toxic soup of pesticide residue, corn syrup and processed foods while serving as a pincushion for 69 mandated vaccines.”
There is more to read and more to know, but so far I’m overwhelmed with information. Even the worst of it is somehow comforting. You can see how this mess developed and how the US became the sickest country in the world.

OCLA researcher Dr. Denis Rancourt and several fellow Canadian academics penned an open letter to support those who have decided not to accept the COVID-19 vaccine.
The group emphasizes the voluntary nature of this medical treatment as well as the need for informed consent and individual risk-benefit assessment. They reject the pressure exerted by public health officials, the news and social media, and fellow citizens.
Control over our bodily integrity may well be the ultimate frontier of the fight to protect civil liberties. Read the letter below or as a PDF here.
Open Letter to the Unvaccinated
You are not alone! As of 28 July 2021, 29% of Canadians have not received a COVID-19 vaccine, and an additional 14% have received one shot. In the US and in the European Union, less than half the population is fully vaccinated, and even in Israel, the worlds lab according to Pfizer, one third of people remain completely unvaccinated. Politicians and the media have taken a uniform view, scapegoating the unvaccinated for the troubles that have ensued after eighteen months of fearmongering and lockdowns. Its time to set the record straight.
It is entirely reasonable and legitimate to say no to insufficiently tested vaccines for which there is no reliable science. You have a right to assert guardianship of your body and to refuse medical treatments if you see fit. You are right to say no to a violation of your dignity, your integrity and your bodily autonomy. It is your body, and you have the right to choose. You are right to fight for your children against their mass vaccination in school.
You are right to question whether free and informed consent is at all possible under present circumstances. Long-term effects are unknown. Transgenerational effects are unknown. Vaccine-induced deregulation of natural immunity is unknown. Potential harm is unknown as the adverse event reporting is delayed, incomplete and inconsistent between jurisdictions.
You are being targeted by mainstream media, government social engineering campaigns, unjust rules and policies, collaborating employers, and the social-media mob. You are being told that you are now the problem and that the world cannot get back to normal unless you get vaccinated. You are being viciously scapegoated by propaganda and pressured by others around you. Remember; there is nothing wrong with you.
You are inaccurately accused of being a factory for new SARS-CoV-2 variants, when in fact, according to leading scientists, your natural immune system generates immunity to multiple components of the virus. This will promote your protection against a vast range of viral variants and abrogates further spread to anyone else.
You are justified in demanding independent peer-reviewed studies, not funded by multinational pharmaceutical companies. All the peer-reviewed studies of short-term safety and short-term efficacy have been funded, organized, coordinated, and supported by these for-profit corporations; and none of the study data have been made public or available to researchers who dont work for these companies.
You are right to question the preliminary vaccine trial results. The claimed high values of relative efficacy rely on small numbers of tenuously determined infections. The studies were also not blind, where people giving the injections admittedly knew or could deduce whether they were injecting the experimental vaccine or the placebo. This is not acceptable scientific methodology for vaccine trials.
You are correct in your calls for a diversity of scientific opinions. Like in nature, we need a polyculture of information and its interpretations. And we dont have that right now. Choosing not to take the vaccine is holding space for reason, transparency and accountability to emerge. You are right to ask, What comes next when we give away authority over our own bodies?
Do not be intimidated. You are showing resilience, integrity and grit. You are coming together in your communities, making plans to help one another and standing for scientific accountability and free speech, which are required for society to thrive. We are among many who stand with you.

Much is being said about Covid Long Haulers. They are experiencing painful after effects that seem to cycle in and out of their daily lives. Many are debilitated by the symptoms, but to those who have lived with a multitude of chronic conditions with Epstein Barr Virus as the culprit, it is nothing new. Could there be a connection between what we are calling Long Haulers and Epstein Barr Virus?
The Epstein Barr virus is inside most human bodies. With it, you can often find Lyme's Disease as they are what you might call co-viruses or cousins. These viruses are deadly and can manifest in a number of ways which makes them hard to track without intense testing. What they have in common with all chronic conditions is that they tend to track the weak body, a sick body and a body that is experiencing trauma or stress. I'm at the point that I believe all chronic conditions should begin their Search for the Cause, Not Just the Cure with an investigation of these very common viruses.
Make decisions from your own research.
Be proud of whatever you decide.
It's your right.
It's your responsibility.
