An extreme pessimist would say that the only thing one learns from history is that one learns nothing from history. In support of that argument, the extreme pessimist could point to the massive daily violations of the Nuremberg Code, which was created by the Nuremberg Military Tribunal in the case of United States v. Karl Brandt et al., one of the trials to bring National Socialists to justice after the Second World War. German doctors were found guilty of conducting horrific medical experiments on concentration camp inmates without their informed and voluntary consent. While the Nuremberg Code is not binding law in any country, it was an ethical code developed as part of the court’s verdict in the trial.
The Nuremberg Code’s first principle includes the following: “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential … without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion.”
Nicole Bogart of CTV has argued that “[t]he Nuremberg Code is specifically about experimentation, which means its principles are no longer relevant once a vaccine has been through a clinical trial and approved for use” by Health Canada.
Ms. Bogart’s thesis is pure balderdash. The inhumane and deadly experiments that concentration camp prisoners were forced into were also approved by the National Socialist government of the day. If a drug, vaccine, or other medical treatment is approved by government as safe or necessary or both, this does not remove the need for voluntary consent required by the Nuremberg Code.
Further, Ms. Bogart seems unaware of the fact that the new COVID vaccines will still be in clinical trials until 2023 . […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
