“Among other common lies, we have the silent lie—the deception which one conveys by simply keeping still and concealing the truth. Many obstinate truth-mongers indulge in this dissipation, imagining that if they speak no lie, they lie not at all.”
Introducing Profiles in Courage
With Julian Assange now facing extradition to the United States, valiant whistleblowers routinely being fed to the BigPharma/Big Media/Big Tech wood chipper, and ignoble liars deploying every weapon of mass deception in their forbidding arsenal, unmasking corruption is one of the most perilous adventures you can embark on in these totalitarian times.
As the quote misattributed to Orwell goes:
“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
Mercifully, there are a few valorous lions roaring out, but they’re being drowned out by the masses of baaing sheep, mooing cows, and clucking chickens. We need a groundswell of truth-tellers to sound our barbaric yawps together if we wish to be heard above the telescreen’s “enormous, unbearable, ubiquitous commercial break.”
“I can name almost a million, including Dr. Reiner Fuellmich and everyone he and his Berlin Corona Investigative Committee have interviewed; all those I cited as examples in Letter to a Colluder; and RFK and everyone he listed in the Acknowledgments of The Real Anthony Fauci.…
“Plus every ordinary human being who chooses not to comply in the face of astronomical pressure and especially those who are brave enough to speak out against tyranny.”
I then cited nearly a hundred people off the top of my head, and that list scarcely grazes the iceberg. Contrary to the commenter’s statement, I have witnessed more gallant heroes rising up over the past two years than over the preceding half-century. But if people on the side of the resistance don’t even realize how many noble truth warriors we have fighting beside us, how can we expect normies to?
Thus was born Profiles in Courage, a new series celebrating whistleblowers; truth-tellers; and all who choose facts, scientific evidence, reality, human beings, and love over propaganda, disinformation, illusion, GloboCap, and fearful loathing. (Only later did I realize this series is not unlike Tessa Fights Robots’s Honest People Series, whom and which I also recommend
I am going to try and keep these profiles brief because there are so many people to cover and I am already plate-spinning dozens of other articles in progress, including entries in other series (e.g., my popular Letters series, Recommendations Roundups, a new interview series, and the Behind-the-Scenes exchanges I teased a while back) as well as podcasts and videos of my articles.
Profiles in Courage is intended to introduce you to people you may not know about, honor individuals who are audaciously challenging authoritarianism, and share examples of superstars we can be proud to call allies as we try to awaken the sleeping.
Dr. Tess Lawrie
Meet the embodiment of integrity, Dr. Tess Lawrie, MBBCh, DFSRH, PhD:
If you are one of the few people on the planet who hasn’t yet read Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s The Real Anthony Fauci (hardcover, Kindle, audiobook) then start doing so now and get it for everyone on your Christmas list along with my fairy tale.
In that book, you will discover one of the boldest examples of courage I have encountered in the scientific community: Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy director, physician, Cochrane Library contributor, and WHO consultant Dr. Tess Lawrie.
Her 120 peer-reviewed publications have garnered 5,091 citations and 177,634 reads as of this writing, putting her in the top 5 percent of ResearchGate members. Dr. Lawrie’s credentials, reputation, and passionate advocacy for patients are unassailable, but that doesn’t stop the BigPharma propaganda machine from trying.
Over the past two years, the formidable Lawrie has worked to save lives from every possible angle, whether by exhaustively researching and recommending life-saving ivermectin or taking on the UK’s near-worthless Yellow Card Scheme adverse events reporting system.
In a Zoom meeting with BigPharma lackey Dr. Andrew Hill (whose employer, University of Liverpool, had recently been awarded a $40 million grant by Gates Foundation vehicle Unitaid), Dr. Lawrie fearlessly confronts Hill about his fraudulent meta-analysis on ivermectin, which she warns him will be responsible for “many, many deaths.”
