Context: First, the life expectancy of someone 78 is not -1. It's almost ten years (although life expectancies dropped significantly last year because of the virus).…
I don't know whether of not Tucker knows how life expectancy works, but he's playing into the trope that maybe COVID deaths don't exist at all because those who died are so old.…
COVID-19 is not unusual in this respect. For example, the median COVID death is *younger* than median heart disease death.

Why doesn't Tucker say "take that, doctors" for heart attacks? ImageImage
This makes sense if you think about it. If you don't die during childhood or in an accident, natural causes should tend to kill those *older* than life expectancy at birth.
Finally, even if only younger deaths count for some immoral reason, ~150,000 people under 67 died of COVID. That's over seven years' worth of homicides. And orders of magnitude more than illegal immigrants or Roma people kill. ImageImageImage

Context: This is an old take that’s passed it’s sell-by date. Where exactly are the “lockdowns” in America?

The theory was that since “Emergency Use Authorization” has “emergency” in the title, this requires a lockdown (because hundreds of deaths a day is NBD, apparently).
If there are no lockdowns, the bad take theorizes, no EUAs can issue, and so approval for the vaccines must be revoked!

Here’s corona-grifter Alex Berenson promoting the half-baked, legally-uninformed idea in April. Image

Context: I looked through the docket. It doesn't seem like anyone argued for or against this claim. It went from being a Facebook meme (or misremembered Fox News segment) to a federal decision with no intermediate steps.

It's false.
The CDC determined that 3 deaths are "plausibly" linked to the J&J vaccine out of millions of doses administered. Even the recent San Jose VTA shooting is more than that.…

I've been reluctant to post troll-looking accounts, because definitionally I'm not sure troll farm output counts as a “take.” But they're often funny, sometimes illuminating, so I will confine them to this thread with my old Bill Mitchell rules (no more than one post in ten). Image

Context: The tweet cuts off a the first page of results showing that nearly all of the massive overdose injection stays at the injection site or goes to the liver where it's metabolized.

h/t: @BadVaccineTakes for tracking this down.
@BadVaccineTakes Especially true in the case of the mRNA used in these studies. Less than one tenth of one percent of megadose made it to rat ovaries.

Oh, and it's not a leaked document. Antivaxxers love to get clout by rehashing old stuff as "leaked." Rarely true.…

Context: Bunch of folks are misunderstanding this comment to mean that vaccines are ~1% effective, but the absolute risk reduction is misleading too. The background rate of COVID was 0.9% in the Pfizer control group, and 0.06% for vaccinated. Huge drop.
Absolute risk reduction just isn't a measure of efficacy; it depends on the study protocols. Fewer people get infected over shorter studies. And authors of the paper admit that relative risk reductions have held up in Israel close to 95%.

Context: almost certainly they misunderstand part of the Pfizer protocol, which doesn't suggest anything is "shedding," as explained in this thread.

h/t @cwarzel.
Thread on why it would be great if it were true.
