U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin finds himself in the eye of a storm as the U.S. military confirms a significant spike in myocarditis cases among service members following the introduction of COVID-19 vaccines. This revelation raises serious questions about Austin’s decision-making and the Department of Defense’s (DOD) transparency.
Myocarditis Spike: A Cause for Alarm
In 2021, the U.S. military witnessed a 151 percent surge in myocarditis cases, a form of heart inflammation that can lead to mortality, including sudden death. This spike coincided with the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, which have been linked to myocarditis. The rate of cases was significantly higher among those with prior infection compared to vaccinated members, casting doubt on the safety and efficacy of the vaccines.
Dr. Peter McCullough, a cardiologist, and president of the McCullough Foundation, looked at the newly disclosed data.
Questionable Data and Lack of Transparency
The DOD’s handling of the data needs to be more transparent. The figures provided by the DOD have been questioned by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who has been investigating problems with the database. The DOD’s failure to respond to requests for comment and provide the requested information by the stipulated deadline further fuels suspicions of data manipulation and a lack of transparency.
Austin’s Role in the Vaccine Mandate
As U.S. Defense Secretary, Lloyd Austin mandated the vaccines in 2021, a requirement that remained in place until Congress forced its withdrawal. His decision to mandate vaccines, despite early concerns about myocarditis post-vaccination raised by military officials, is a glaring example of poor judgment and a disregard for the health and safety of service members.
Repeated Changes and Data Manipulation
The DOD’s repeated changes to the diagnosis data and the significant discrepancies between the initial and corrected data have raised concerns about data manipulation. The DOD’s failure to provide complete information and its lack of transparency has been criticized by Sen. Johnson, who has called for an investigation into whether the spike in medical conditions is associated with the vaccines.
The significant spike in myocarditis cases among U.S. service members following the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, coupled with the DOD’s questionable handling of the data and lack of transparency, puts U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin in a critical light. His decision to mandate vaccines despite known risks, and the DOD’s apparent lack of transparency, raises serious questions about his leadership and the DOD’s commitment to the health and safety of service members.
