The Roundup: Week Ending September 17
ACC Special on Blacksburg, VAERS data, Martha's Vineyard memes, and School closure blame game
The RoundUp collects the most recent news, listens and observations that caught my attention. Here’s a few things that happened. I’ll comment on some of them below.
Governor Ron Desantis of Florida vividly calls out the hypocrisy of the left by transporting migrants to Martha’s Vineyard
Ongoing revelations of adverse events from the COVID-19 vaccines
Blacksburg is featured in the ACC’s Three-Day Weekend
Everyone knows that school closures were a bad idea now, but the blame game has shifted into high gear.
Martha’s Vineyard and so many memes
The internet almost broke last week with memes as Governor Ron Desantis of Florida demonstrated vividly to liberals the challenge of attempting to serve illegal aliens in border states… by busing and flying them to the ultra elite’s playground/vacation paradise of Martha’s Vineyard.Residents protested hotly, and within 48 hours, the first group of people were relocated.
Unfortunately, NBC News tweeted out:
“Florida Gov. DeSantis sending asylum-seekers to Martha’s Vineyard is like ‘me taking my trash out and just driving to different areas where I live and just throwing my trash there,’ a founding member of a foundation which helps refugees says. - @NBCLatino."
It brought the ire of people on all sides for comparing people to trash.
FDA refuses to provide key information about vaccine adverse events
U.S. drug regulators are refusing to provide key analyses of a COVID-19 vaccine safety database, claiming that the factual findings cannot be separated by internal discussions protected by law… “The secrecy is unacceptable for an agency that said it is transparent with the public about vaccine safety,” Witczak, who sits on one of the FDA’s outside advisory panels.
“What’s the point of having VAERS if you’re not releasing it to the public?” she added.
You may not have heard of VAERS if you’re regular consumer of MSM. VAERS is the governments Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. It’s a voluntary system which depends on the medical community reporting what they observe about the impacts of vaccines. The OpenVAERS Project attempts to track VAERS data and make it available to the public in a more easily understood way.
These numbers are disturbing and do not match VAERS - which is why people are wanting open, unfettered access to the data about adverse events. It does not make sense to many why the FDA refuses to give the data. When compared to all other vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccines adverse events do not fare well:
The new FOIA request was due to “a recent paper from Dr. Joseph Fraiman and others that found a higher incidence of serious adverse events in vaccinated participants in the original Pfizer and Moderna vaccine trials than in placebo recipients.”
Earlier this month, we learned that “Landmark First Peer-Reviewed Study on Pfizer and Moderna Covid Vaccines Confirms 'Excess Risk' of Adverse Side Effects.”It means that vaccine manufacturers knew that there were statistically significant adverse side effects during the trials, yet the American public was told that the vaccines were 100% effective, that vaccinated persons could not catch COVID-19 or spread it, that masks work to reduce transmission, that 14 days were needed to stop the spread, etc.
ACC Three Day Weekend: Blacksburg
Ok, I know that this wasn’t from this week, but this ACC Three Day Weekend episode features Blacksburg, and it’s just… a wonderful synopsis to living in a beautiful, mountain-bound, college town.
The Blame Game extends to the school closing issue
It’s an election year, and the more numbers come out about the dismal performance, developmental impact and emotional/psychological impact on school-age children as a result of school closures, lockdowns and a failed attempt at online schooling, the more folks are running for cover.
No one wants to be blamed for saying schools should be closed. Then there’s this guy who was paraded before the public on CNN during the pandemic, advocating school closures and inducing literal fear-mongering in parents. He has a brilliant case of selective amnesia, but unfortunately there’s receipts everywhere.

A Generation of Children Impacted by Covid-19 School Closures by Elin Martínez, Human Rights Watch, March 9, 2022
“We’re now beginning to see the cumulative effects. They are particularly devastating for those who faced barriers to education before schools closed, including children with disabilities, children from low-income families, and girls in many contexts.”
