Fact Check - Politifact (FALSE)
I wanted to publicly respond to the DoD’s characterization of the DMED recently released by a group of hero military whistleblowers as a “glitch”. Rather than coming to the attorney speaking for the whistleblowers (me) or to Senator Ron Johnson (who provided the forum for the whistleblowing and officially requested a response), the DoD went to Politifact. Politifact is one of the self-proclaimed fact checkers in the world and is owned by the Poynter Institute.
Before I go into the DoD let me address Politifact. The Poynter institute is a self proclaimed independent journalism school and tries to claim not to be left wing. This may seem unlikely since nearly every journalism school on the planet is left wing or worse. In regards to Poynter specifically, an examination of the IRS 990 form for for the organization submitted for the year 2020 shows several interesting things.
Top donor - Facebook $2,785,5000
Number two donor - Google $1,570,000
Other donors - Open Society (George Soros), Environmental Defense Fund, Bloomberg, and many others.
Past donors included the Gates Foundation and other people with substantial interests in ensuring the news is reported in specific ways.
I have looked at some of the “fact checking” and it is incredibly misleading and lacking any semblance to investigatory reporting. With regards to COVID and the jabs, the some total of any real investigation by Politifact is to ask the CDC and then blindly follow them or other interested parties. Nothing is ever done to corroborate or report the other side of the story no matter how supported it is.
With regards to the DoD, the absurd response to Politifact demonstrates the organization’s bias better than I ever could. The DoD claimed that the data we reported for 2021 was correct but that the data from 2016-2020 was wrong and under reported. That seems quite convenient because that means that any data going forward, post jab mandate, would remain consistent with what we saw in 2021. In other words, if there were additional diseases/injuries from the jab in 2021, those increased numbers would remain consistent in future years assuming the mandate remained in place.
While clearly Politifact is interested in truth, it seems they forgot to ask the DoD how the DMED database managed to fix itself between 2020 and 2021 if they did not know there was an error until after my whistleblower testimony in 2022. If there was a consistent error in the database that existed for five years and no one noticed, how did the database magically become correct in 2021? Hold your breath folks, I am certain Politifact will check back with the DoD about this when they realize they overlooked that question.
There is another very important question that should also be asked. Before I ask it, let me set up the premise. The DMED database is considered the premier epidemiological database in the world. The US spends many millions of dollars per year for this database to ensure the health and readiness of our troops. This database is then monitored by an entire division of the military, the DHHS which means the data was available to science himself - Anthony Fauci, and is consulted by public health experts everywhere. With so much money and monitoring, how could errors in excess of 1000% be missed for a period of 5 years? This question becomes even more important when you consider that 2020 was the year of COVID and the year Anthony Fauci was monitoring every available piece of data to keep us safe from COVID. How could the human embodiment of science miss such huge errors?
Ultimately, the idea that a glitch occurred for five years and went unnoticed by thousands of government employees only to magically repair itself prior to 2021 is absolutely absurd. This cover-up is so profound that the fact that Politifact did not ask these simple questions actually acts as strong evidence of their bias. It is time for criminal investigations and jail time for many people.
