The Dangers of Masks

– April 9, 2021

“We are in uncharted territory and especially so with the possible implications for our children. Their immune systems are still being developed and we are forcing lockdowns, school closures, and masking on a developing child and we have no prior experience on the subsequent outcomes pertaining to children’s development, health, and well-being. These are matters too important to nonchalantly disregard. The consequences could be catastrophic and lifelong, especially for our children.” ~ AIER Contributing Authors

The Brooklyn Variant of the Coronavirus: Fuggedaboutit

– April 7, 2021

“It is important to note that the infectious disease experts are benefitting from a prolonged pandemic, in terms of grants, power, and media attention. Thus, asking them for permission to return to normal is like keeping the porch light out for Jimmy Hoffa. It is time for everyone to voluntarily catch the Brooklyn variant of the coronavirus, say fuggedaboutit, and stop acting like a plucked chicken.” ~ Donald Siegel & Robert Sauer

If You Had Covid, Do You Need the Vaccine?

– April 6, 2021

“We implore health care providers to explain the benefits and risks to their patients, in full, so that they can be fully informed in their decision-making. This can only happen if there is: 1) immediate suspension of coercive tactics, 2) physician supervision and orders for vaccination, 3) public information presented with fair balance as it would with any pharmaceutical or device product.” ~ AIER Contributing Authors

California’s Failed Response To COVID

“The lockdowns of varying stringency in place since March 2020 have evidently failed to protect Californians—especially poor Californians—from COVID and have inflicted enormous harm. It is far past time to try a better strategy.” ~ Dr. Jayanta Bhattacharya & Dr. Martin Kulldorf

The Doom Is Impending, From Lockdowns but Not the Virus

– April 1, 2021

“Medical science and targeted help versus a blunderbuss non-science-based political power grab is what the so-called Covid crisis has been about since the very beginning. Yet the apparatchiks who falsely seized power are not about to give it up—vaccinations, herd immunity and plunging cases notwithstanding. That’s the real impending doom.” ~ David Stockman

Just Because There’s No Price Doesn’t Mean There’s No Cost: Covid-19 Vaccine Edition

– April 1, 2021

“The policy response to the Covid pandemic has been a master class in government failure: governments around the world have messed up their responses time and time again. It isn’t because they are bad people, necessarily, nor is it because they are incompetent. It is because ‘The Problem’ is a set of innumerable smaller problems for which, as Friedrich Hayek pointed out, the relevant knowledge of ‘the particular circumstances of time and place’ cannot confront political decision-makers as data. It emerges from action, exchange, and the prices they produce.” ~ Art Carden

We Must Not Be Forced Into Vaccinating Our Children From COVID

– March 31, 2021

“We make this plea and urge those in the medical field to reiterate the need for a thorough examination of the science of efficacy, the potential risks to the children and the evidence that supports the need for such a medical intervention foisted on our children. Failing which, it would seem a violation of the Hippocratic Oath, ‘Above all do no harm.’ We will address the insanity of vaccine passports in a subsequent op-ed.” ~ AIER Contributing Authors

New York Rolls Out Vaccine Passport Program

– March 31, 2021

“New York is just one of several states that is introducing an independent vaccine passport program (Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, to his great credit has ruled it out as a misguided, authoritarian idea). These states are not alone in embracing the social credit score model. Several European Union members (The EU is introducing a ‘Digital Green Certificate’), South American countries, China, and other nations are moving forward on their own vaccine passport systems.” ~ Jordan Schachtel

Lockdowns Worsen the Health Crisis

– March 27, 2021

“We suspect that one day, the quarantining of entire societies that was carried out in response to the coronavirus pandemic, leading to vast swaths of the population becoming unhealthier overall and ironically more susceptible to severe outcomes from the virus, will be seen as the 21st century version of bloodletting. As the epidemiologist Martin Kulldorff has observed, public health is not just about one disease, but all health outcomes. Apparently, in 2020, the authorities forgot this obvious truth.” ~ Jenin Younes & Kiley Holliday

The Many Variants of Fauci’s Mutating Covid Advice

– March 23, 2021

“Although reinfection from new strains continues to be an avenue of research and investigation, the evidence we currently have suggests it remains uncommon. That hasn’t stopped America’s ‘leading infectious disease authority’ from indulging in wildly irresponsible speculation from a national stage though, invariably appealing to alarmism as a pretext for continuing the same failed lockdown policies he has been peddling for over a year now.” ~ Phillip W. Magness

Why are We Vaccinating Children against Covid-19?

– March 20, 2021

“Vaccinating our children with a possibly harmful (untested) vaccine to them and with no basis given their risk profile, must be pushed back upon hard by parents. Parents are the voices of their children now on vaccinating their children and on the other looming disaster, Covid-19 ‘vaccine passports,’ that are as illogical and dangerous as vaccines for children under 12! Americans must stand up now to this! ” ~ AIER Contributing Authors

School Closure Advocates and Their Own Actions

– March 18, 2021

“It is impossible to look past the blatant hypocrisy and disregard for society Fiegl-Ding’s advocacy for school closure now represents in light of these findings. We have gotten to know this sort of hypocrisy all too well throughout this pandemic which illustrates the principle that we all share the burden of lockdowns equally, but some more equal than others” ~ Ethan Yang
