The Word Has Gone Out, and No Takers! Why Not?

About a month after posting my $30,000 offer, I hit upon the idea of contacting, or maybe I should say confronting, certain established people who had voiced their support of the Covid-19 injection – voiced it on the scale from docile airhead to screeching baboon.  There’s a huge number of such people to choose from, so I decided to make my sampling random and small.  My purpose was twofold.  Primarily, I wanted to show that these people, who have a following ranging from a few thousand (I assume) to several million, have no idea what they’re talking about.  Another reason was to get some publicity for my site, figuring that some of those I targeted, even though they were sure to bristle at my message, might tell others about it, and the word would spread from there.  (I’m old school, I believe in word of mouth, not social media, which I’ve never done – though if others use it to publicize my book and website, that’s fine with me).  Lastly, being human, I just wanted to let off some steam.  Some readers may be put off by the way I lash out at certain people.  All I can say is, it’s my nature to be intense over important matters, and there are so many prominent know-it-alls out there who deserve to be taken to the woodshed – journalists, celebrities, athletes, commentators, the famous and not so famous.  After writing to sixteen of them, I felt I’d made my point.  I then moved on to the real heavyweights, the top public health officials in all fifty states.  For now, that’s the last letter that appears on this page, but directly above it, out of chronological order, are two final letters that I wrote as an afterthought.  Below it are some sharp comments I made regarding two laughable responses that I received from public health bureaucrats. 

So far, I’ve received only one reply addressing my offer, which I’ve copied below.  I’ll publish any more that come my way.  The letters, four of which were emails, pretty much tell the story, though I’ve added background details on some of them.  I think it’s significant that, with one exception, these people had nothing to say.  You might object that they couldn’t be bothered replying to something so outlandish.  Well, if someone gave me the opportunity to make thirty grand so quickly and easily, I’d certainly give it a shot, or tell other people about it.

The first recipient, Philip Caputo, is also the only one who has accepted my challenge so far.  He was with the first combat unit that landed in Vietnam in March 1965, and saw heavy fighting in that and the following year.  He wrote a wonderful book about his experiences, A Rumor of War, published in 1977, which has sold millions of copies and received worldwide acclaim, and deservedly so.  I always highly recommend it when the subject of the Vietnam War comes up in conversation.

He has his own blog,, which I check out now and then.  Although I’ve enjoyed reading about his experiences as a war correspondent in Afghanistan and Lebanon, I don’t care for most of his opinions, and the potshots he took at anti-vaxxers in several of his “dispatches” really irritated me.  On January 30th, he wrote: “Thought for the day as we embark on Year Three of the pandemic: Even if the Bee could explain to the Fly why pollen is better than shit, the Fly would not understand. (His boldface.)The people to whom it applies should be obvious.” 

On February 11th, I sent him a dispatch of my own:


This is not going to be a pleasant letter, but I’ll begin it on a cordial note by saying that I read A Rumor of War a long time ago.  I’m 68, and have been a voracious book reader my entire life, and nothing else I’ve ever read reached my emotions as deeply as this book, while also enlightening me for the first time about “the facts on the ground” about the Vietnam War.  I also felt I had a great deal in common with you temperamentally.  A few years ago I googled your name out of curiosity and that’s how I found your website.  I’ve read all your “dispatches” of the last three years or so.  Since I felt that we were so much alike in many ways, I was astonished to discover that most of your attitudes and opinions clash with mine, and none more than your position on vaccines.

Back in the 1980s I traveled extensively and mostly alone around Africa, Asia and South America.  As a schoolboy I was taught that vaccines had greatly benefited humanity and I believed it.  Consequently, I got at least fifteen shots scattered over six years as protection against various tropical diseases.  In 1987 I learned for the first time that there was a dark side to the vaccine story.  A few years later I learned that I had a freakish autoimmune condition, almost certainly from one or more of those shots, that would have a profound impact on my life.  I made a personal investigation into the subject, studying it with an open mind from both sides, and became a total anti-vaxxer.

I stopped taking the mainstream news media seriously forty years ago.  I get almost all my news and commentary from the internet these days.  You went the opposite way, enjoying a successful career in journalism.  While I certainly admire your courage as a platoon leader in Vietnam, and later as a war correspondent, it seems you adapted your opinions, perhaps subconsciously, to the alternate reality of the mainstream media.  I would’ve thought that with your life experiences and your own extensive travels, and the sensitivity with which you wrote about the Vietnam War, you’d have a good idea how the world works, but that’s clearly not the case.  You’ve swallowed the mainstream media Covid lockdown and vaccination narrative in its entirety, without showing any critical thinking, or awareness of events here and abroad that have been completely censored.  Calling people like me part of the Great American Moron tribe, or idiots, or comparing us to flies who prefer shit over pollen, proves nothing.  I find you hard to take.

Tell you what, Phil.  Over the course of ten years I wrote, revised, and updated a book entitled Will Vaccines Be the End of Us?  I recently had 1000 copies printed.  The entire book can also be read for free on my website, on which you will also find my offer of $30,000 to anyone who can name me one vaccine developer who wasn’t a failure, swindler or psychopath.  I’ll be happy to publish your reply.  What a great opportunity for you to show the whole world what a bunch of nuts we anti-vaxxers are!  And you’re welcome to put this message on your own site, so that your regular commenters, who routinely agree with you, can apply for my offer as well.  Show me that you have a broader knowledge and deeper understanding of vaccines than I do, and not only will I send you or anyone else a check for thirty grand, but I’ll take all the unopened cartons of my books to the landfill with the rest of my household trash, and on top of that I’ll take my website down after apologizing to the world for being such a horse’s ass and spreading so much misinformation.  Deal?

On March 6th, Caputo responded:

Well, it’s here on the site.  I make no apologies, having had at least as many vaccines as you have, while I was in the service overseas, as a foreign correspondent, and as as a traveler, and never experienced a single side-effect beyond a sore arm.  They protected me from any number of diseases, from Yellow Fever to Bubonic Plague, not to mention the Salk vaccine, received when I was a kid in grammar school.  I don’t have time to look into the backgrounds of every vaccine creator in history, but I’m quite sure that Jonas Salk was not a swindler or psychopath, nor was Edward Jenner, who discovered the Smallpox vaccine in 1749.  In 1979, Smallpox was declared eradicated world-wide.  You find me hard to take, ditto for how I find you.  Perhaps you’d think differently if, like my wife and me, you’d lost people close to you in the current pandemic. though I doubt it.​​

Two days later I wrote back: 

I was genuinely surprised and also pleased that you replied to my comment of February 11th.  So far I’ve contacted fifteen other people, mostly journalists, who share your mindset about vaccines, sending them the same message.  I’ve yet to hear from any of them and don’t expect to.  I don’t diminish the deaths of people whom you and your wife knew.  It’s always painful to lose a close friend or relative.  Nevertheless, I’ve seen no evidence with my own eyes of any pandemic, nor, to my knowledge, has anyone in the world isolated and identified any virus that supposedly causes Covid-19.  I believe this whole thing to be a monstrous hoax driven by evil people with their own hidden agenda, including the top decision makers in the mainstream media.  I’ve maintained all along that, had the media never reported anything about Covid, no one would have noticed anything unusual, because nothing unusual in the way of death and disease happened in 2020.  The CDC, an agency long mired in extreme corruption, was and still is a huge part of it with all their usual tricks.  There’s so much fraud involved, and so much commentary about it on the internet, that I can’t possibly go into it here.  

Your rebuttal is weak.  You simply repeat a few stale myths of the vaccine dogma.  Also, some of your assertions are incorrect.  Edward Jenner was born in 1749 – it was in 1796 that he came up with his smallpox vaccine – and he didn’t discover anything, he conducted crude experiments with cow pus and declared them to be successful.  Then, as now, he had his supporters while many vehemently disagreed with his theories.  I’m one of the disagreers.  You should at least read the first seventy pages of my book, where I tell my own story in detail, and deconstruct Jenner and Salk and their respective vaccines.  You might also be interested to know that I’ve written a long chapter, beginning on page 107, entitled “For Our Soldiers Who Fought In Vietnam,” in which I quote from A Rumor of War.  In that chapter I tie in the treachery of the federal government’s war policies with their vaccination policies.

In commenting, I’m not trying to convince you of anything because no friendly dialogue seems possible.  My intention was to expose the ignorance of people like you who castigate anti-vaxxers like me.  To my mind, the lack of a response is proof of that ignorance.  But in responding, you tacitly admitted that you haven’t studied the vaccine controversy and have no intention of doing so.  In other words, you prefer to remain ignorant because arrogant certainty feels much better than uncertainty.  That’s how I see it.  So, in the near future, I’m going to post this give and take on my website, and let readers decide for themselves who has the truth on his side.  Incongruously, I’m also happy to give your book a plug.  I think all Americans born after the Vietnam War era, who know so little about their own history, should read it.

It’s regrettable that all this lockdown and vaccination business has caused so many social divisions, and so much acrimony, but I’m afraid that’s the way the world works.  And I’m afraid it’s only going to get worse as the enormous toll of casualties from the Covid jab continues to mount, and word of its terrible side effects, especially related to the heart and circulatory system, continues to spread, despite the media’s best efforts to censor and obfuscate what is happening.  Notwithstanding my disenchantment with you, I hope you’re spared any suffering in your old age from the possible long-term effects of this shot.

Take care, Phil.

(Note: Two months now and nothing but silence.  I knew that Caputo splits each year living in Connecticut and Arizona, and since I travel to northern Connecticut at least once a month to visit my children, I thought about sending him an email asking if he’d like to meet up and have a few drinks.  I would’ve liked to hear his reflections about war, about Vietnam (which he has revisited and which I visited in 2013), and I would’ve liked to share travel stories, and talk fishing and hunting, both of us being avid sportsmen.  But I scratched that idea after reading his contemptuous remarks about anti-vaxxers.  Nevertheless, I have no animus towards him, so I’ll leave the door open if he should read this.)

* * *

That same day I emailed Brian May through his website  Who’s he, you ask?  I didn’t know myself until I read his insipid opinion about anti-vaxxers.  He’s best known as the lead guitarist for the rock group Queen, whose lead vocalist, Freddie Mercury, died of AIDS in 1991.  Mercury was a homosexual, but May isn’t.  When I sent this, I was unaware that he had become quite ill two months earlier – from Covid-19, he believes, despite being-triple vaxxed – but I’m pretty sure he’s doing okay now.  I hope so, because he doesn’t seem like a bad guy, though I question his values for being closely associated with a flaming queer like Mercury.  In any event, he never replied.  This is what I wrote:


I never heard of you until recently, when I read an article on the Billboard website.  I see you’re an old-timer in the world of rock’n’roll, with an impressive resume.  In the aforementioned article you made some critical remarks about fellow musician Eric Clapton, who suffered severe pain for weeks and was unable to play his guitar – though he seems to have recovered – after getting the Astra-Zeneca Covid-19 shot last year.  Clapton has taken what I consider an admirable stand in refusing to play any concerts where attendees are required to show proof of vaccination.

Actually, you made it clear that you like and respect the man, and your criticisms of him were relatively mild – but, if you were quoted correctly, you said, “Anti-vax people, I’m sorry, I think they’re fruitcakes.”  I’m 100% anti-vax and I don’t consider myself a fruitcake.  In fact, I spent many years researching vaccines, wrote a book on the subject, and have an anti-vax website,, on which I offer a $30,000 reward to anyone who can show me one vaccine developer, since 1796, who wasn’t or isn’t a failure, swindler or psychopath.  If you wish to apply for it, I will post your reply, up to 1000 words, on my site.  Want to give it a try?

John Massaro

May is one of many musicians, born in the 1940s, who made it big performing in the late 1960s and 1970s, and who has sounded off about the Covid-19 injection.  Their names may be unknown to some of you younger readers, but their music was a part of my life in my late teens and twenties, so I’m going to reminisce and go off in a bunch of different directions, acknowledging that this is all highly subjective.  I’ll try to make it entertaining too.

Until three months ago, I’d never heard of Joe Rogan and Spotify, but I now know that Spotify is an international streaming service and the Joe Rogan Experience is the world’s most listened to podcast with an audience of 11 million, and a huge money maker for Spotify (not that I understand how all this works).  I was certainly familiar with Neil Young, who played solo and also joined Crosby, Stills and Nash, an iconic group of the Woodstock era.  Young kicked up a fuss about Spotify in December 2021 after Rogan did an interview with Robert Malone, accusing him, Rogan, of spreading misinformation and proclaiming “They can have Rogan or Young.  Not both.”  Spotify stuck with Rogan and dumped Young at his request.  Young is an incurable mental midget.  He really ought to keep his silly mouth shut – and that goes for his singing too.  I never liked his whiney voice.  Even back in 1970, when he released his solo album After the Gold Rush, he was under the illusion that he had important things to say, as in “Southern Man,” a cheap shot at White southerners and their supposed bigotry.  Two years later, Young recorded another shitty song bashing the South, “Alabama.”  This from a Canadian, no less.  (Note: Shortly after writing this, I came across a tidbit about how Ronnie Van Zant, lead vocalist of the southern rock group Lynyrd Skynyrd, co-wrote the song “Sweet Home Alabama” to get even with Young.  That song became a huge hit, and strangely enough, Van Zant became friends with Young, who at least was honest enough to credit him with straightening him out about the Deep South.  Van Zant and other band and crew members were killed when their chartered plane crashed in rural Mississippi in 1977, though most survived.)

It wasn’t long before Young’s old bandmates, David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash followed in his self-righteous footsteps, and pulled their music from Spotify.  To get into the mood before writing this, I listened to their old album Deja Vu, on my CD player.  It was never a favorite of mine, and I now wish I had saved my money.  There are a few nice tunes, but most aren’t, the worst being “Almost Cut My Hair,” one of the dumbest songs ever recorded.  Only David Crosby could write and sing a song this awful, and even he later admitted the lyrics were juvenile.  Crosby was one of the all-time biggest jerks in the music industry.  His personal life reads like the rap sheet of a drunk driver who plows into one parked car after another.  It’s a miracle he made it to age 80, and is still alive.  Stills and Nash led more exemplary though hardly heroic lives.  Graham Nash is by far the most talented of the four.  I still like some of his stuff, especially his album Songs for Beginners.  But all four are liberal nitwits with a long history of supporting nitwit causes and Democratic politicians.  No surprise that they would take the moral high ground over the Covid shot.

Also marching with CSNY against Spotify and vaccine misinformation is Joni Mitchell, who in the late sixties was Graham Nash’s live-in girlfiriend.  I never knew what to make of Joni.  She always seemed “out there,” a shy, cigarette-smoking flower girl who never said much, and wrote some good tunes, but I never really got into her scene.  Now she has re-emerged as the soft-spoken ditz she undoubtedly always was.  She’s opposed to spreading vaccine misinformation because it’s costing people their lives, you see.  That’s the new trendy word: misinformation.  These people never explain anything, they never specify what they mean by misinformation.  All they’re doing is going with the flow of the media narrative, showing the whole world that they’re “with it,” just like they did as pseudo nonconformists fifty years ago.

Lastly, I’ll mention Paul McCartney, who always impressed me as the most likable of the Beatles, though somewhat deficient in the IQ department.  He dutifully got his Covid jab on camera, if he didn’t fake it that is, and urged young people to do likewise.  “Be cool, get vax’d,” he tweeted on August 2, 2021.  Is it not remarkable how totally lacking in substance and critical thinking all these celebrities are?  Be cool.  Sure, Paul.  Take a big risk for no reason at all, have a needle filled with weird junk, possibly microscopic metal shards or parasitic organisms, plunged into your arm, pay no attention to the millions of people who have had serious adverse reactions to the shot, just be cool.

Getting back to Joe Rogan, I spent an hour looking into his background and watching a few clips from his program, the format of which reminded me of the old Dick Cavett Show on television.  But Rogan is nowhere near as refined and witty as Cavett was.  He has had a varied career in the entertainment world, mostly as a comedian.  His popularity seems to be that he comes across as a regular guy with a working class background who can be funny as well as relaxed and open-minded, has a black belt in jiu-jitsu, and frequently drops four-letter words and shows off his tattoo-covered arms.  Anyone that heavily inked is not my kind of person, but that’s the least of it.  By far the largest segment of his listeners is young white males.  Rogan seems to have the perfect combination of traits to fill a vacuum for this lost generation living in a degenerate age without a single hero to look up to.  And with a net worth of $100 million, with a huge contract just signed with Spotify reported to be twice that amount, he’s well compensated for it. 

I came upon a list of nearly 700 guests who have been on Rogan’s program since its inception in 2009, many of them several times.  I recognized only fourteen or fifteen, including some people I really despise, like Ben Shapiro and Peter Hotez.   There was only one, Edward Snowden, whom I would’ve listened to.  I randomly typed in nine or ten of these people on Wikipedia to learn something about them, and found them to be of little interest or significance.  Half of them are tough guy wannabes.  That’s obviously the key to Rogan’s success in the mainstream sector of cyberspace.  Discuss topics that the dull talking heads on television avoid, but stay within prescribed limits.  Chat with people who have big backdrops and little substance, and pretend to be controversial or something.

But it goes further than that.  Joe Rogan is a blatant liar, coward and sell-out.  The thought police combed through his past and discovered that he uttered the word “nigger” around twenty times on his show over the years, but never in a robust way, as in “I’m sick of these niggers complaining about racism,” but rather in discussing its emotional impact when people hear it, the fact that Blacks use it among themselves, that sort of thing.  But never mind the context, his unpardonable sin was that the forbidden word had passed his lips.  Now as we all know, nigger is not a nice word, but it has its place, and it has become much more taboo than when I was young because of media inculcation.  When Rogan was “exposed,” he could’ve showed some backbone and said, “Okay, I said the word nigger once in a while.  So what?  I’ll say it again.  Nigger.”  That would’ve won him a lot more White support, and even many Blacks would’ve admired him for it.  But of course it would’ve had major career repercussions.  Instead, he went through the routine we’re all familiar with, groveling and apologizing.  I watched a video of him flagellating himself nonstop for nearly six minutes: “regretful,” “shameful,” “I haven’t said it in years,” “not my word to use,” “I clearly fucked up,” “nothing I can do to take it back,” “a teachable moment,” “my sincere and humble apologies.”  What a disgusting performance.  He has also said that he’s looking forward to the day when Whites are a minority in America and claimed that he watched about 100 clips of the 2020 riots and saw only four blacks looting, it was “fucking young White kids” running in to grab free Nikes.  That statement is beyond comment and Rogan has a serious mental disorder for making it.  But his podcast goes on, and podcasts like those of Kyle Hunt – on whose hard-hitting website you can quickly find the above-referenced clips by typing Rogan’s name in the search bar – remain comparatively unknown.  Joe Rogan is a lowlife who is incapable of speaking or airing the truth about any hot subject, including vaccines.  So his falling out with a fellow lowlife, Neil Young, who instigated it, is just another third-rate media distraction, much ado about nothing.

Let me return to Eric Clapton, whose judgment is quite poor, and I’m sorry to say that because I like him; he’s an introspective man with a kind heart.  He wrote and performed some deeply sensitive songs many years ago, though most are only familiar with his more recent “Tears in Heaven,” dedicated to his four-year-old son Conor who died in a tragic accident in 1991.  That song brought misty eyes to people around the world, including me.  Clapton has had other struggles in life, including alcoholism and a heroin addiction.  (He just turned 77, another miracle, though in personality he’s nothing like David Crosby.)  But what I really can’t understand is how he had an adverse reaction to his first Covid shot, then went back for the second one weeks later.  The second shot was much worse, causing him agonizing pain to the point where he couldn’t use his hands, though the worst of it eventually subsided.  I’ve read many such accounts.  What is wrong with people?  Where did their common sense go, that they would return for a second shot after getting beaten up by the first?  The experience turned Clapton around, and as mentioned he took a stand against vaccine-pushing concert planners.  He also teamed up on this issue with Van Morrison.  I was a huge Van fan back in the 1970s, buying all his albums.  He too is a sensitive soul, and many of his songs express it.  Many others are just easy listening.  Last year, these two teamed up and recorded a song, “This Has Gotta Stop,” which took direct aim at the harm caused by the Covid shot.  Unfortunately, they are outnumbered by their fashion-conscious brethren, like ageing dirtbag Mick Jagger, who wrote and performed a different kind of song about coming out of the lockdown, “Easy Sleazy,” some verses of which mock anti-vaxxers.

* * *

On the following day, the 12th, I emailed a comment to, which is run by Gordon Duff, who claims to be a disabled Vietnam War vet and in close touch with intelligence services around the world, though some have questioned his bona fides.  Duff describes VT as “an independent alternative journal for the clandestine services focused on U.S. Foreign Policy and Military Issues.”  I would never detract from a man’s experience in combat without having dug up more facts, so I’ll take him at his word on Vietnam.  Nevertheless, despite his fearless articles on the world’s hotspots, he seems to make things up now and then, and some of his viewpoints are extremely irrational and incoherent.  I reached the point where I just got sick of his garbage, and cut way down on my visits to his site.  He’s good about posting comments that sharply disagree with those of him and his crew, but he never posted mine:


I used to log on to your website every few days, but in the past year it’s been more like once a month.  You publish some solid stuff about the Mideast, but also too much nonsense, and that’s why I’ve given up on VT.  As an anti-vaxxer, one thing that always annoyed me was your extremely obnoxious attitude towards people like me, shared by your writer Ian Greenhalgh.  Your wife’s pro-vaccine pieces also turned me off, though she’s not nearly as abrasive as you.

Today was one of those days that I went to your site, and I found your February 2nd Covid vaccine debate with Kevin Barrett on his radio show quite interesting.  It also reinforced my conviction that it’s a waste of time for two people, with such strongly opposing views, to debate the subject, which invariably turns into a mudslinging contest, as in this case with you ending the debate by calling Barrett a “time-wasting bullshitter” and hanging up the phone.

I came up with a different approach.  As a longtime independent researcher and author, I’m offering a $30,000 reward on my website to people like you – who like to tell people like me that we’re assholes, we’re full of shit, and so forth – to fill me in on one vaccine developer, since 1796, who has done anything good for humanity.  You’ll find details on my site.  Here’s a great chance to show the world how enlightened you are, and how ignorant we anti-vaxxers are.  Please share this offer with Ian, Carol, and everyone else you know.  Thanks.

I worked on the next five letters during the third week of February, and dated them the 22nd, which is when I dropped them in the mail.  February 22nd, not “President’s Day,” is George Washington’s birthday, and the day when it was celebrated as such when I was young.  Washington was an extraordinary man whom I greatly admire, so I thought this might bring me luck in some unforeseen, telepathic way.  Now, I don’t really believe what I just wrote, but I do believe in amusing myself and others, and I do have my quirks.

The letters speak for themselves, so I’ll make just a few brief comments.  I wish I had ended my letter to Howard Stern with a request that he read it on his program to his hopefully dwindling fan club.  Not that he would have, and not that I even know if he personally read it, though I hope he did.  Jim Cramer is a Jewish investment guru who hosts a cable TV show called “Mad Money.”  Individual letters were mailed to each of the six people named at the Salt Lake Tribune and each of the six at WCBS News Radio.  I still tune in to WCBS for ten minutes most mornings, which barely comes in 130 miles north of New York City.  The whole gang sounds like their usual breezy selves, so I’m sure my cutting remarks bounced off their heads like soggy peas.

Jim Cramer:

I never heard of you until recently, when I read about you on the internet.  It seems you went bananas a few months ago, demanding that everyone get a Covid-19 shot by January 1st, and employing the military to forcibly inject those who resist.

I learned more about you on Wikipedia.  Seems you’re a television big shot in the financial world.  Not owning a TV, and having no interest in investments, I wouldn’t know about that.  I also noticed your other credentials, among them National Merit Scholar, magna cum laude Harvard graduate, hedge fund manager.  I can’t say I’m impressed.

While it’s clear to me that you’re a pro-vaccine zealot, despite your denials, I should tell you that I’m an anti-vaccine zealot.  I have an anti-vax website,, on which I offer a $30,000 reward to people like you who think people like me are looney tunes.  Check it out.  Just think, if you’re right and I’m wrong – about the polio vaccine, for example, which you enjoy squawking about – you can drag my name through the mud on national television while holding a check for $30,000 in front of the camera.

I’ll bet you got a lot of hate mail over your recent tirade, but please don’t think of this as hate mail.  Think of it as love mail.  I’d love to hear from you, and if I do, I’d love to post your reply on my website.

Sirius XM, Howard Stern Show
1221 Ave of the Americas, 36th Floor
New York, NY 10020

Howard Stern:

I don’t like you.  I never did.  The fact that you’ve had a large following for many years, and have raked in well over half a billion dollars from your radio and television shows, and books, speaks volumes about the depths to which this country has sunk, though I’m sure that the number of Americans who find you as repulsive as I do far outnumbers your fans.

By way of background I’m 68, the same age as you, and grew up on Long Island, in Williston Park, not ten miles from where you grew up.  That’s about all we have in common.

I have listened, on internet links, to some classy comments you made on September 7th, 2021 and on January 3rd and 19th, 2022, about those of us who have refused to get a Covid-19 shot.  Back in September, you gloated on the air over the death of radio host Marc Bernier and others who had taken a stand against Covid vaccines, then supposedly died of Covid.  I say “supposedly” because I can think of four reasons to dispute that, but I won’t go into that here.

You really blew it this time, making light of their deaths, with a “Fuck them” as a eulogy, and expressing your neurotic fears about a nothing virus, and calling for the shot to be mandatory, and slamming sports figures like Novak Djokovic and Aaron Rodgers who see things differently.  You’ve dug a hole for yourself that you won’t be able to climb out of, even in the eyes of many of your vaccinated fans.  It’s fun to see you self-destruct.

Anyway, here’s the deal: I say vaccines are the biggest fraud in medical history.  I’ve written a book about it, and have a website about it,  I’ll take the words out of your mouth before you come up with them: I’m a fucking asshole.  You – or anyone else reading this letter – are hereby invited to demonstrate this to the whole world, while putting a serious dent in my bank account.  Please name and discuss one vaccine developer, beginning with Edward Jenner in 1796, who accomplished anything that benefited humanity.  See “My $30,000 Offer” on my site for details.

I don’t know where you’re broadcasting from these days, but I’m mailing this to your NYC studio address, and I really hope you personally read it.

Rep. Deborah Conroy
275-S Stratton Office Building
Springfield, IL 62706

Deborah Conroy:

Until recently, I never heard of you.  It seems you made a name for yourself by introducing a bill, HB4640, in the Illinois state senate that would have increased the already invasive powers that bureaucrats have regarding personal health information.  I read your bill.  It contains vague language, the usual politicalese, which some astute people in your state took to mean the forcible quarantine of those who refuse to be injected with the Covid-19 shot.  You maintain that your words were taken out of context.  Yeah, sure.  We’ve all seen how, step by step by step these past two years, what started out as “a few weeks to flatten the curve,” a phrase parroted by elected officials everywhere, has reached what amounts to a global civil war between two different mentalities, which could well erupt into a shooting war in any number of countries.  After checking out your profile on the internet, please excuse my impertinence in considering you just another garden variety lowlife politician, of which we have all too many here in New York.

Your name made a splash in the alternative news media, which I diligently follow, as well as in your local mainstream news.  I’m looking at the February 8th headline from KHQA-TV on the computer screen right now: “Illinois lawmaker says she received death threats for proposed public health data bill.”  It seems you and your staff were so concerned for your safety that you closed your district office in suburban Villa Park.  Apparently, some of your Democratic colleagues also had a good scare over this backlash.  I don’t feel any sympathy for you.

Since these Covid vaccinations, as they are called, are obviously one of your top priorities, I’m wondering if you know a single fact among countless dark facts that stain the 225-year history of vaccination – many of which I discovered in extensive research going back to 1989.  Maybe you know something I don’t know.  I really doubt that, but to be fair, I want to give you the opportunity to show everyone how intelligent you are and how ignorant I am.  I recently self-published a book I wrote entitled Will Vaccines Be the End of Us? and have a website,, on which you’ll see an offer of $30,000 to anyone who can name one vaccine developer, going all the way back to Edward Jenner in 1796, who wasn’t a failure, swindler or psychopath.  This offer is open to everyone everywhere, so I encourage you to make as many copies of this letter as you wish and distribute them to everyone you know.

Salt Lake Tribune Editorial Board:

I read the editorial you published in the January 15, 2022 edition of your newspaper.  You lamented the fact that your governor hadn’t mandated a mass vaccination campaign in Utah, and you supported calling out the National Guard to ensure that unvaccinated citizens could not go anywhere, meaning that they would be confined to their homes.  Since it was published as a statement of the editorial board, I take it that all six of you endorse this position.

It would seem that you’re woefully out of touch with the feelings and opinions of many readers living in a staunchly “red” state.  I’ll bet you were flooded with angry responses to your editorial from these people, and probably many more from out-of-staters, since your editorial was given a good deal of publicity on the internet, which is where I learned about it.
Since you obviously believe that vaccines are an important public health tool, I thought you might be interested in an offer of $30,000 I’ve made on my anti-vax website to anyone who can prove just that.  See my site for details.  My purpose in making this offer is to show the world that, aside from being a bunch of petty tyrants, you have no idea what you’re talking about.  I have a hunch that you know as much about the history of vaccination as my cat knows about Uzbekistan.  But who knows, maybe it’s anti-vaxxers like me who are totally ignorant, and deserve to be exposed as idiots on the worldwide web for claiming that vaccines are the biggest fraud in medical history.  Would you care to straighten me out, and pocket a nice wad of cash in the process?  I’ll publish any reply you care to make.

345 Hudson Street, 11th Floor
New York, NY 10014

Wayne Cabot, Steve Scott, Paul Murnane, Sean Adams, Marla Diamond, Sophia Hall

This letter should go out to all your co-workers, and in fact to every mainstream journalist in America, but since it’s an impossible task for one person to compile such a list I’m sending it only to some of you reporters and announcers at WCBS news radio, who are the only mainstream journalists I’ve been regularly exposed to for many years.  I stopped taking the news seriously forty years ago, but for a long time I turned on the radio for ten minutes, usually at 7AM, just to keep up with the party line.  Ten minutes was all I could take of your nonsense.  That was when I lived on Long Island.  I recently moved upstate, and WCBS comes in staticky, so I don’t listen to it every morning like I used to.

From March 2020 to November 2021 I listened to you people debase yourselves in an intensive fear, censorship and false propaganda campaign, in what I consider the biggest hoax and criminal conspiracy of all time – the Covid plandemic, and the subsequent injection campaign.  God, what a drag it must be to go to work every day and lie the way you do.  Then again, you may live in such a bizarre alternate reality that you actually believe the things you report, which means that you wouldn’t be liars but simply android wind-up dolls.

During the most intensive period, in April and May 2020, I turned the radio on for a full hour in the morning, and sometimes later in the afternoon, just to absorb the nonstop hysteria.  I’ll bet your bosses instructed you in enunciation techniques to generate maximum fear in your listeners – what others have called “fear porn.”  Whatever the case, you journalists really are a special breed.  Of course, all this Covid baloney comes on the heels of all your other pro-vaccine baloney you’ve been slicing for years, and always doing phone interviews with the same vaccine-pushing “experts” for years on end – never anyone with an opposing viewpoint.  And censoring the huge number of Covid-19 vax casualties which continue to pile up – but I guess that’s not really happening, because there’s nothing about it on the scripts you’re paid to read.

For your edification, I’ve enclosed one page of detailed info about the 16,471 deaths and 1,546,829 injuries, through January 1, 2022, connected with just one of the four vaccines used in Europe, as recorded in the EudraVigilance system, and that’s only part of it because several European countries do not participate in the system.  This is just a drop in the bucket of facts that you never report.  I have no reason to doubt these figures, but even if they’re overstated (and they may well be understated) there are mountains of evidence that these shots are causing a vast amount of harm wherever they’re given, including, of course, in the U.S.  If you had any brains and integrity, you would’ve looked into this a long time ago and quit on the spot.  I honestly don’t know how you people can’t be aware of what’s going on, and if you ARE aware of it how you sleep at night.

I take no pleasure in writing letters like this, so being a nice guy with a sense of fair play, I want to give each of you the opportunity to put me in my place.  I have a website,, on which I offer $30,000 to anyone who can name a single vaccine developer, over the last 225 years, who has done anything good for humanity.  If you log on, you can instantly find that page.  I maintain that many of these people were and are not only failures, but outright psychopaths, and we’re dealing with the very worst of them right now.

Am I wrong?  If so, I beg of you, please enlighten me.  Please prove to me that the EudraVigilance page I enclosed is a bunch of lying anti-vax propaganda.  And if you won’t look into the matter, please share this offer with as many of your colleagues as you can, here and abroad, hundreds, thousands of them.  I’d just love to be proven wrong about all this, so that I can go out and get my safe and effective Covid shots and boosters and enjoy life again, knowing I’m fully protected against this killer virus that’s been sweeping the planet.

Up next is a letter I wrote to Terry Bradshaw, the Pittsburgh Steelers star quarterback of the 1970s and early 80s, and longtime pro football analyst who, with other former standouts of the game, appears regularly on the pre-game show Fox NFL Sunday.  I figured he’d be worth writing to because he has instant name recognition to nearly all sports fans.  Bradshaw was an immensely popular player and is still very popular as a broadcaster.  He is a charismatic, larger than life, fun-loving kind of guy with many interests besides football: he’s a country western singer, he raises horses, he markets his own bourbon and frozen hamburger patties, and he’s an actor, author and motivational speaker.  On the downside, he appears to be excessively materialistic, he’s a shallow rah-rah patriot who preferred playing football in college to facing combat in Vietnam, and he has a reputation for sticking his foot in his mouth.  Still, I can’t help liking the guy, at least on some levels.

Although I have no TV set and hardly any interest in professional sports, I used to plop down on the couch and watch a little football at my brother’s house some Sunday nights.  Bradshaw was a fixture on the screen, and he made quite a fuss over Aaron Rodgers not admitting that he didn’t get vaccinated.  In this he was joined by fellow commentators Howie Long, Jimmy Johnson and Michael Strahan, but Bradshaw was by far the harshest.  I checked out more of his diatribes against Rodgers on YouTube.  Some people just don’t know when to shut up.  Surprisingly, Bradshaw’s home address was easy to find on the internet.

Dear Terry:

On the whole you seem to be a good ole boy with many accomplishments to your credit, but in my estimation you have a few major faults as well.  I’m writing to you about one of these, what I perceive as your unfair and outspoken criticism of Aaron Rodgers, for whom I have a lukewarm admiration.  You made it clear on national television that you don’t like the man, in part for reasons that have nothing to do with the Covid-19 situation.  Perhaps there’s some merit to your disdain of him as a “weak” competitor, I don’t know.  What I do know is that you were totally out of bounds this past November for ripping him over his choice not to submit to the experimental Covid injection.  You claimed he “lied to everyone” when he said he was immunized against Covid, supposedly caused by SARS-CoV-2, a virus which has never been proven to exist.  I don’t see it that way at all.  It’s true that he made liberal use of the word “immunized,” rather than outright admitting, as he later did, that he was unvaccinated.  But aside from safeguarding his health, he was being prudent in his choice of words, realizing that he was in a tank full of sharks in a feeding frenzy mood, you being one of them.  I don’t blame him one bit for being coy in discussing his vaccination status while in the witch-hunting spotlight of the mainstream media.

I should tell you that, at age 68, I have researched every aspect of vaccines in my free time for nearly half my life.  Therefore, I think I’m qualified to tell you that when you, your colleagues, and other authority figures in pro sports air your opinions on the subject, you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.  I have one simple question for you, and in all my research I’ve never seen it satisfactorily answered.  If vaccines work, if they really protect people from specified diseases, how is Rodgers endangering his teammates, coaches and other personnel, all or nearly all of whom got the shot?  How is he being “selfish” by not being vaccinated?  And I’m using the word “vaccinated” loosely because this injection is not a vaccine at all, but I’m not going to go into all the details about that here.

Do you know the name Ken Ruettgers?  He was a tackle for the Green Bay Packers who began his 12-year career shortly after yours ended.  His wife was seriously injured, perhaps permanently, by the Moderna shot she received in January 2021.  He subsequently created a website,, which documents several hundred such injuries suffered by ordinary Americans who trusted their government and their TV talking heads and lined up for their shots.  It would take you days to read all their testimonies and watch all their videos.  And that’s just a tiny fraction of all the casualties this injection has caused in the U.S. alone.  It puts Aaron Rodgers’s actions in a whole different light.

Unlike Ruettgers, who still claims to be pro-vaccine, I am totally anti-vaccine, and I put forth my views in a book I wrote and recently self-published entitled Will Vaccines Be the End of Us?, which can be read on my website  On my site I also offer a $30,000 reward to anyone who can show me one vaccine developer since 1796 who was not an utterly contemptible person, or at best a failure.  Please share this with your buddies at Fox who also unloaded on Rodgers, and any other sanctimonious people you know who think it’s everyone’s duty to get injected against Covid or any other disease, real or imagined.  I’ll be happy to take down my website and write a check to anyone who can prove me wrong.
In closing, Terry, I must confess that, even though you said some very stupid things late last year, I like your style, and so do fifty or a hundred million other people.  You shoot from the hip in a most colorful way.  The problem is, sometimes your aim is very bad.  Since we’re six months away from the start of the 2022 NFL season, you might have plenty of time on your hands to explore the suppressed side of this story.  I’m enclosing a few pages from a European governmental agency that categorizes the nearly 4 million injuries and 42,000 deaths reported after receipt of the Covid injections on only part of that continent.  If this doesn’t open your eyes and shock you, nothing will.  As a prominent figure in sports, it should especially concern you that in 2021 an unprecedented number of amateur and professional athletes around the world have suffered heart attacks and strokes, many of them fatal, after being inoculated against Covid-19.  It would be nice to see you “man up,” admit your ignorance, and sound the alarm about what’s going on, even though you’d be jeopardizing your career at Fox Sports and turned into an outcast by the media establishment.

Sincerely, John Massaro

I admit to being obsessive sometimes.  Weeks after writing the few paragraphs above about Joe Rogan, I dug up more dirt on him.  There are certain people in this world who really get my goat, and he’s one of them.  When I discovered that he’s easy to contact directly, through his email address, I did just that on March 30th:

Joe Rogan:

I’m not a fan of yours.  You might be surprised how many detractors there are who see through your act unless you read the comment boards on lesser known websites run by thinking people, which I doubt.  Like me, they know you don’t become a rich celebrity in this world if you’re an honorable person.  Like me, they see you as a dim-witted, high-priced call boy who can hold a conversation.  You’re Establishment all the way, Joe, part of the Deep State.  Didn’t you recently make the typically idiotic remark that “we’re fucked without the Deep State?”

I can’t possibly go through all the frivolous guests you’ve interviewed on your sham of a show, so, as an anti-vaxxer focused on vaccines, I’ll mention two.  Just yesterday I watched a five-minute clip of you chatting with Michael Osterholm, who began his career as an epidemiologist with the Minnesota Department of Health and since then has held so many federal government posts, written so many papers, and received so many honors and awards, that every good citizen is supposed to be awestruck.  I’m not.  I think the guy is a gasbag.  Naturally, he’s also a big vaccine pusher, and in those few minutes I heard you sermonizing on the wonder of vaccines, the smallpox vaccine in particular, even holding up show and tell photographs, and twice referring to people like me as “wackos,” with Osterholm agreeing with every word you said.  I’ve heard it all before – a thousand times.  Question: Have you ever read one book that tells the other side of the story about the smallpox vaccine?  I also spent five minutes reading part of the transcript of your interview with Peter Hotez.  What a friendly, mellow exchange in which Hotez comes off as a rational, caring medical professional, and like Osterholm, a Deep State “expert” with a ton of credentials and a bank account to match.  I’ll bet you’re unaware of his hysterical verbal attacks aimed at vaccine skeptics, which resulted in former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson threatening to sue him for defamation unless he retracted a glaring lie he wrote about her, which I believe he did.

I’ll give you a little credit for having Robert Malone and Peter McCullough on your program in December.  But even though these guys have done some good raising concerns about the Covid jab and vaccine mandates, they tell only half the truth because they’re pro-vax all the way.  Let’s see you interview some real truth tellers like Jane Ruby, Michael Yeadon, Thomas Renz, Shari Tenpenny, and Suzanne Humphries, among others.  I don’t see that happening because I don’t see your paymasters allowing it.

You’re a dope.  Do you disagree?  I have a website,, on which – and let me write this in caps so you don’t miss it – I OFFER $30,000 TO ANYONE WHO CAN SHOW ME ONE VACCINE DEVELOPER, IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THIS FIELD, WHO WASN’T A FAILURE, SWINDLER OR PSYCHOPATH.  I realize that thirty thousand bucks is chump change to you, so perhaps with all your connections you can spread the word about this offer to millions of people all over the country and around the world who can use the money.  Come to think of it, you want to be a real man?  Then read this whole letter on an upcoming show.  If you think you’re right and I’m wrong, you shouldn’t have a problem with that.  And if you do, since I don’t listen to your podcast, shoot me an email and let me know about it.

It has long been my conviction that the first step in improving the health of the American people would be to abolish public health agencies at all levels – county, state and federal.  That isn’t going to happen short of war or revolution, because if there’s one thing well-paid bureaucrats are good at, it’s surviving and thriving.  Look at Anthony Fauci.  I surmise that the top public health bureaucrats in each state, who go by the title of commissioner, secretary or director, are Fauci clones of one kind or another, that is, useless at best, and in many instances career criminals.  These people are largely unknown, even within their own states.  I thought it would be fitting to wind up this little project by putting them on the spot and seeing what they have to say.  I doubt any will reply, but we’ll see.

I addressed fifty envelopes by hand to each state’s Department of Health (DOH), to the attention of the persons named below (adding, in parentheses, “or any associate”).  Below the letter is the text of five pages I printed from the website, which went inside every envelope.  I put them all in the mail on March 11th.

Incidentally, I broke up the tedium of going through all these DOH websites by sidetracking to the reviews posted by ordinary citizens who had contacted their health bureaucrats for assistance, sometimes regarding an urgent medical issue.  (What doesn’t get reviewed on the internet these days?)  This was entertaining.  It validated what I and countless others already knew about most people on the government payroll.  With few exceptions, review after review expressed total disgust with their interaction, citing rudeness, incompetence, an uncaring attitude, or being put on hold forever – sometimes all four.  Your tax dollars at work.  Among the worst are Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

March 9, 2022

Dear Sir/Madam:

The letter you are holding has been mailed to the top public health officials in all fifty states.  After spending many hours on the computer examining each state’s Department of Health website, I determined that you hold that number one position, or possibly are second in command.

Although I have no formal education in medicine or health policy, I’ve read a great deal on these and other related subjects.  I’ve also traveled widely, mostly in the 1980s, a period when I got many vaccinations as a precaution against various tropical diseases.  I’m certain that it was one or more of these vaccines that caused an autoimmune condition which was to profoundly affect my life, and motivated me to research this subject for many years, and write a book about it, Will Vaccines Be the End of Us?, which I self-published a few months ago. It can also be read on my website  Not to sound presumptuous, but I’ve probably studied all aspects of this topic much more thoroughly than any of you reading this.  Since vaccines are the life blood of public health bureaucracies, I’m sure you regard me and people like me with some degree of hostility.

In perusing all fifty websites, I discovered, unsurprisingly, that you all speak with one voice regarding the supposed Covid-19 pandemic and the promotion of mass vaccination to prevent it.  You all march in lockstep with capricious, ever-changing guidelines laid down by the CDC, an agency corrupt beyond description.  Unless I missed something, not one website strays an inch from the mass media narrative about what I and many others regard as a colossal hoax, not one even hints at the grave risks associated with certain batches of these shots that have killed and maimed at least hundreds of thousands in the U.S. alone.  Despite near total media censorship, word has spread through much of the population, particularly in regard to potentially fatal heart conditions, and as a result, it appears that the injection campaign has run out of steam.

Unless you live a sheltered life, you are aware that this huge number of deaths and injuries has been intensively discussed on the internet, and that it’s easy to find hundreds of written testimonies and video interviews of people who have suffered crippling and often life-threatening reactions to this jab, people who will never recover the good health they once enjoyed.  Just one site where more than five hundred can be found is, run by former NFL veteran Ken Ruettgers, whose wife was seriously harmed over a year ago right after getting the shot, and to my knowledge has never recovered.  I mention this particular site only because Ruettgers cannot be accused of being an anti-vaxxer.  He is a kindhearted man, but like most people he parrots empty phrases, emphasizing that, in spite of his wife’s condition, he’s pro-vaccine and pro-science.

I have enclosed a report detailing 40,788 deaths and 3,771,826 injuries, through February 26, 2022, which were tabulated from the pro-vaccine website  This is a system called EudraVigilance, which is identical to our own VAERS, online at, sponsored by the CDC and FDA.  As you can see, it is very detailed, specifying injuries to 27 body systems.  Several European countries do not participate in EudraVigilance, so many more deaths and injuries have occurred, and it’s likely that, as with VAERS, only a fraction of serious injuries and deaths are reported.  Speaking of VAERS, more than fifteen times as many vaccine events were recorded in 2021 as in 2020, the previous record high year in the 32-year history  of this program.  On, I’ve read that, as of January 14, 2022, VAERS has registered 22,193 deaths and 1,053,828 adverse reactions.  Late last year I scanned about a thousand reports on their site, and estimate that the Pfizer and Moderna Covid shots accounted for about 95% of these reports.  On the website, you can find a list, with names, ages and countries, of 318 amateur and professional athletes who received the Covid jab, and suffered severe reactions.  Of these, 178 died, many from heart attacks.  Nothing like this has ever happened in the sports world.  I could go on and on, but this small sample of evidence screams in the face of anyone with common sense that we are in the midst of the greatest medical crime in history.  It’s a crime that may send hundreds of millions of people to an early grave, because no one yet knows the long term consequences of these concoctions, or certain batches of them that may have been deliberately made more toxic as a diabolical experiment.  It wouldn’t be the first time.

The entire Western world was thrown into turmoil, first, by the lockdowns of 2020, then over the way this dangerous jab was being forced on so many people.  Many who lost their jobs rather than submit to it, or were otherwise shut out of society, are still reeling from it.  But you seem oblivious to all this, and you’re shielded by the mainstream media, which for two years has been engaging in the kind of fake news and censorship practiced by the most repressive communist dictatorships of years past.  In fact, you strike me as the kind of apparatchik that flourished during the rule of Joseph Stalin, enjoying a privileged position and drawing a handsome salary while tens of millions of Russians were being worked to death in the gulag system, and the media here totally ignored what was taking place.  Your loyalty to the conglomerate known as the “health care system” seems to be as unswerving as their loyalty to the Communist Party.  It seems to me that either you’re in denial about all the lives that have been destroyed by this shot, and will continue to be destroyed, or you simply don’t care.

If you wish to comment on anything I’ve written here, I invite you to do so on my website.  If you think any of my comments are untrue, or that the enclosed EudraVigilance data has been falsified, I want to hear from you.  I’m not afraid of the truth, and will print any reply I receive.  Incidentally, I have a question: Have you ever read a single book, of the many that have been published, that disputes the consensus that vaccines have greatly benefited humanity?  If so, please let me know, and tell me why you felt the author was wrong.  Note too that I offer $30,000 to anyone who can point to one vaccine developer since 1796 who was not a failure, swindler or psychopath.

Finally, I noticed that, depending on state population, your Department of Health employs anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand people, so I encourage you to make copies of this letter and distribute them to all your workers, or otherwise let them know about my $30,000 offer.  I enjoy having my beliefs challenged, and I would never want to spread erroneous and potentially harmful information, so again, if you or anyone else thinks that this letter is filled with nonsense, I would greatly appreciate being enlightened.

Sincerely, John Massaro

The following paragraphs (before the next section divider) were enclosed with those letters:

In the United States, the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) is now reporting 24,827 deaths following COVID-19 vaccines. (Source.)

That is 2.74 times more deaths than total deaths (9,051) recorded following all vaccines for the previous 30+ years. (Source.)

The European (EEA and non-EEA countries) database of suspected drug reaction reports is EudraVigilance, verified by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and they are now reporting 40,788 fatalities, and 3,771,826 injuries following injections of four experimental COVID-19 shots:

From the total of injuries recorded, almost half of them (1,769,255) are serious injuries.

Seriousness provides information on the suspected undesirable effect; it can be classified as ‘serious’ if it corresponds to a medical occurrence that results in death, is life-threatening, requires inpatient hospitalisation, results in another medically important condition, or prolongation of existing hospitalisation, results in persistent or significant disability or incapacity, or is a congenital anomaly/birth defect.”

Health Impact News subscriber in Europe ran the reports for each of the four COVID-19 shots we are including here. It is a lot of work to tabulate each reaction with injuries and fatalities, since there is no place on the EudraVigilance system we have found that tabulates all the results.

Here’s the latest as of April 7, 2022.  On March 31st, the email I sent to Joe Rogan came back as “undeliverable.”  I’m sure this happens to lots of people occasionally.  It’s happened to me five or six times, either because I made a typing error or the email address no longer existed.  Each time the notification came back in a matter of seconds.  This time it took 24 hours, and was accompanied by an unusual message: “Despite repeated attempts to deliver your message, the recipient’s email system refused to accept a connection from your email system.”  It made me wonder, does Rogan have an in-house censor who filters out hostile emails?  That’s my suspicion, but I really have no idea.  Well, I’ll stop picking on Joe and leave him to his $100 million, with $200 million in the pipeline.  I’ve often asked myself, what does anyone do with that kind of money?  Pile it up on a table in $100 bills and look at it?

That same day I checked my post office box, which I normally do twice a week.  The letter I’d sent to the Alaska public health director had been returned as “unable to forward;” I assume the other 49 made it to their destinations.  There also was a large manila envelope with the DOH return address of a state which I won’t name.  I thought, “Hmm, this is interesting, maybe they’ve actually enclosed some documentary evidence about a vaccine developer I don’t know about.”  I was very curious and opened it as soon as I got home.  There were nine sheets of paper, seven of which were copies of what I had mailed them.  The top two were copies of an email exchange between a little bureaucrat (LB) with a lowly title and a big bureaucrat (BB) with an uppity title.  LB had sent BB a copy of my letter, and in a grammatically challenged memo asked her how to handle it.  In essence, BB replied: “This person is from out of state so there’s no need for a lengthy response.  Send him a note thanking him for sharing his opinions, file his letter, and forget about it.  There’s no need for staff to get involved with this.”  LB failed to thank me for my opinions (I was heartbroken), and neither woman had one word to say about the content of my letter or the millions of casualties listed on the five-page printout.  I did a search on both and found an informative page, including a photo, on LB, who was surprisingly attractive, and although her salary was modest, it still wasn’t bad for a nonentity.  But here’s the kicker: on the second page was the official state DOH emblem and letterhead, along with the name and phone number of the top dog commissioner (who apparently never read my letter), and below that, these words:

The information contained in this electronic message is privileged, confidential, proprietary and intended only for the use of the owner of the email address listed as the recipient of this message.  If you are not the intended recipient, or the employee or agent responsible for delivering this message to the intended recipient, you are hereby notified that any disclosure, dissemination, distribution, copying of this communication, or unauthorized use is strictly prohibited and subject to prosecution to the fullest extent of the law!  If you are not the intended recipient, please delete this electronic message and DO NOT ACT UPON, FORWARD, COPY OR OTHERWISE DISSEMINATE IT OR ITS CONTENTS.

(emphasis in original)

So what does this ding-a-ling do?  SHE COPIES AND FORWARDS IT – TO AN OPEN ADVERSARY LIKE ME, NO LESS!  Who says bureaucrats can’t be funny?

I really doubt they have any legal jurisdiction beyond state lines, so I was tempted to reproduce these two pages in full right here, but on second thought I decided not to, because I didn’t want to have any lingering concerns about possible vindictive action.  Besides, if it ever got back to them, and it probably would eventually, I’m sure LB would’ve been reamed out, possibly fired, and who knows, maybe she’s a struggling single mother, so that’s why I’m leaving all names out.  But I’m keeping this as a souvenir.  What I should stress again, however, is that the astronomical figure of the dead and injured from this Covid-19 injection did not faze either of these bureaucrats in the least.

A few days letter, another gem, this one from Maryland, arrived in my box, and this one I will reproduce.  In regard to my offer, it’s about as relevant as an article about the price of onions in Khartoum.  Do these people have any brains at all?

I think I’ve made my point, and at present, don’t plan to send out any more letters, but I will update this page with any additional replies I receive.
