NEW YORK — “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Those powerful words were first written in the 1905 George Santayana book “Reason in Common Sense.” Winston Churchill changed it a bit in a 1948 House of Commons speech: “those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Unfortunately neither version resonated with most Americans and others around the globe.
Once upon a time in the United States of America, a noble profession called “journalism” existed. Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite inspired a generation of young, ambitious journalists in the 1970s. Mike Wallace was one of their contemporaries. He was a 21-time Emmy Award winner for his work on the long-running CBS new magazine show 60 Minutes.
Millions of Americans watched the 60 Minutes broadcast on Sunday, November 4, 1979. Only about 20% of U.S. households had cable television at the time. Thus most only had five or six channels to choose from. Despite the large audience and powerful reporting, this episode was forgotten and buried. That is until now.
COVID-19 déjà vu
Wallace opened the 1979 broadcast with the following:
The flu season is upon us. Which type will we worry about this year, and what kind of shots will we be told to take? Remember the swine flu scare of 1976? That was the year the U.S. government told us all that swine flu could turn out to be a killer that could spread across the nation, and Washington decided that every man, woman and child in the nation should get a shot to prevent a nation-wide outbreak, a pandemic.
Well 46 million of us obediently took the shot, and now 4,000 Americans are claiming damages from Uncle Sam amounting to three and a half billion dollars because of what happened when they took that shot. By far the greatest number of the claims – two thirds of them are for neurological damage, or even death, allegedly triggered by the flu shot.
Keep in mind, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) was signed into law in 1986. It is the first of two laws (PREP Act of 2005 is the other) that provide a double layer of tort immunity for vaccine manufacturers. Thus you could actually sue the manufacturers for damages back then.
There’s absolutely no way any 2021 journalist with access would/will ever grill a Fauci, Walensky or other government tool peddling these injections. Guys like Murrow, Wallace and Cronkite (the namesake of my journalism alma mater) are the reasons this blogger became a journalist.
Here is the story from 1979.
Here is a German version.
Judi Roberts update
Mrs. Roberts, who as featured in the story, did ultimately get all of her medical bills paid by the government, according to a 2009 interview. But there is virtually no recourse for anyone injured by these shots today. Only 5,351 people were compensated by the government due to vaccine injuries from 2006 to 2018. Most of those were from flu shots.
There have already been 16,000 adverse effects, including 929 deaths, reported as a result of mRNA shots in just two months. The best way to protect yourself is to avoid mRNA and all other experimental shots altogether.
