Last night, Fairview Baptist Church in Edmond, Oklahoma was full once again with an enormous and electrifying crowd as Dr. Lee Merritt, their keynote speaker, presented the eager Oklahomans with the evidence that she has gathered pertaining to the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines.
Over the last year, Dr. Merritt has spoken across the nation on what she believes are the dangers of the vaccine – which she has previous labeled an “experimental biological agent.” This has garnered her increasing scrutiny and criticism from not only the government but her previous colleagues as well, where up until this point she was considered an esteemed and respected medical practitioner. Merritt graduated from The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in New York. During this time, she was elected to life membership in the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
After graduating med school, Merritt went on to serve her country in the United States Navy, where she conducted her Orthopedic Surgery Residency. Merritt would go on to serving 9 honorable years, during which she was appointed as a Louis A. Goldstein Fellow of Spinal Surgery. Merritt’s credentials and accolades do not just stop there. After leaving military service she served on the Board of the Arizona Medical Association, is a past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and has been Fellowship Certified by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.
Dr. Merritt presented evidence, that squalene which is present in the COVID-19 Vaccination was also present in the Anthrax Vaccine. She described how the Anthrax Vaccine Series was rushed and did not receive critical analysis from the FDA, resulting in serious health problems within the military population that received the series of 6 shots. The similarities with the COVID-19 Vaccine are hard to ignore.
The Anthrax Vaccine contained an ingredient called squalene, which is an adjuvant or something that increases your body’s immune response. Dr. Merritt states in a study that was conducted they found that in those who suffered from Gulf War Syndrome “more than 90%” of them had Anti-Squalene Antibodies, while those who did not have the syndrome had “0%” of the antibodies. Merritt described how this push for mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination is very similar to the one conducted for anthrax, stating “if the government tells you what you can put in or on your body, then you are a slave”.
The concerns laid out by Dr. Merritt echo those of award-winning investigative journalist Gary Matsumoto, who outlined the dangerous use of this adjuvant in his critically acclaimed book entitled, “Vaccine A: The Covert Government Experiment That’s Killing Our Soldiers, and Why GI’s Are Only the First Victims.” In it, Matsumoto describes the crippling effect that Squalene had on the service members who were forced to take the Anthrax vaccine prior to deployment to Desert Shield/Storm as well as Iraq and Afghanistan. The adverse reactions mentioned in his book are eerily similar to those Dr. Merritt described.
The federal government suggests that there are not dangers to taking the vaccine, however, their own system would suggest otherwise. Dr. Merritt presented a slide that showed the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) data relating to COVID-19. In this slide, she compared the number of deaths from the COVID-19 vaccine against the amount for every vaccine over the last 31 years.
As of earlier this month, the total death rate from the COVID-19 Vaccine was almost 1.5 times that of deaths reported over the last 31 years from all vaccines combined. From 1990-2021, VAERS reports 3,885 deaths for all other vaccinations. Dr. Merritt presented data from VAERS that suggests that there have been at least 5,063 deaths this year from the COVID-19 vaccines alone. Further stating that it is believed that only “1 out of 10 adverse effects are reported”. If the VAERS data is accurate and that trend continues at the rate it is now, that would mean that in the next 30-year time span we could be looking at over 260k deaths from the COVID-19 Vaccines.
Dr. Merritt then revealed that there is whistleblower inside the Health Department that testified that the number of deaths related to the COVID-19 Vaccine is even higher than VAERS. Ignite Liberty was able to obtain a copy of the whistleblower’s declaration. The “Jane Doe” is cited saying:
“It is my professional estimate that VAERS (the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) database, while extremely useful, is under-reported by a conservative factor of 5. On July 9, 2021, there were 9,048 deaths reported in VAERS. I verified these numbers by collating all of the data from VAERS myself, not relying on a third party to report them. In tandem, I queried data from CMS medical claims with regard to vaccines and patient deaths and have assessed those reported in VAERS by a factor of at least 5. This would indicate the true number of vaccine-related deaths was at least 45,000. Put in perspective, the swine flu vaccine was taken off the market which only resulted in 53 deaths.”
A full copy of the text of the Whistleblower’s Declaration can be found below.
Dr. Merritt said that the reason for the VAERS is to detect issues with vaccines before they kill to many people and allow the government and physicians to react. “They are not paying attention to their own rules.”
One of the more common adverse reactions to the vaccine is Immune Thrombocytopenia, where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys platelets. Speaking from personal testimony, Dr. Merritt stated that a friend of hers died in Florida following receiving the Pfizer vaccine. She stated that when he was admitted into the hospital that it was found that he had “0 platelets” in his blood and that it is “not normal”. Dr. Merritt described her friend as being healthy, in good physical condition and of sound mind prior to receiving the vaccine. He was admitted into the ICU and twelve days later he died. According to the Mayo Clinic, thrombocytopenia is usually seen in those with autoimmune disease such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. It is not seen in healthy adults.
One of the last data points that Dr. Merritt discussed was that of a process known as “viral shedding”. Dr. Merritt described it like this, our bodies natural response when we are sick is to “expel” the virus or bacteria naturally through the “sweat glands and exhaling”, citing that is the reason why fevers occur. When someone receives the vaccine, the “spike proteins” that the vaccine creates, then have the chance of being expelled from the body by that natural process.
Dr. Merritt stated that the COVID-19 vaccine that is meant to vaccinate you from the virus is “actually creating the S1 Type 2 proteins that cause the virus”. She continues by stating because of this, there is a chance that a vaccinated person can transmit the virus to an unvaccinated person via of “viral shedding”.
Ignite Liberty found that this is not something that is unknown, in an article written by Joni Sweet, published on Health.com, she quotes Vincent Venditto, PhD and assistant professor of pharmaceutical sciences at the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy saying “It is possible to have viral shedding after a vaccine.”
It remains unclear what the potential dangers are for it. However, in an Ignite Liberty exclusive interview with Dr. Merritt following her presentation she stated “the FDA knew it was a problem (viral shedding) in 2015. There were over 20 papers in 2007-2008 that the FDA had researched” covering viral shedding following vaccines.
The “Delta Variant”
In the last few weeks, Americans have heard of the rise in the “delta variant” strain of COVID -19 and because of this variant there is need for new mask mandates and shutdowns. According to Dr. Merritt, the “Delta Variant” is no more deadly than the first string of the virus. “Don’t let them scare you with variants”, Dr. Merritt said.
Currently, Ignite Liberty was not able to locate any death rate totals for just the “delta variant”. The CDC has published that they “predict” a spike in COVID-19 death rates because of the “delta variant” but have not cited any specific studies or evidence.
During her presentation, Dr Merritt gave the audience 3 key things to be worried about when it came to COVID-19 and if they are going to be at a higher risk. According to her colleagues and herself, the following three things have the greatest impact on your risk of COVID-19:
- If you have high levels of Vitamin D, you are at lower risk for a severe bout with COVID-19.
- If you suffer from Obesity, you are more likely to be more affected by COVID-19
- COVID-19 appears to affect those with Type A blood worse than others
Over the last year, Americans have seen rapid changes in CDC guidelines and flip flopping from the leader of the America’s COVID-19 response, Dr. Anthony Fauci. Ignite Liberty has and will always try to provide our readers with the facts. It is our stance that American citizens have the right to choose over whether the vaccine is right for them and their family.
Dr. Merritt may have said it the best, “it’s a risk assessment” on whether the vaccine is right for you. To make that assessment the facts regarding both the virus and the vaccine MUST be transparent and available to the public. That is the role of true journalists. A role that is sadly missing from the legacy media in this state.
