“We have a bill that says children must be vaccinated in order to go to school. And if their parents don’t want them to get vaccinated, then they’ll just use a bill that says that [children] as young as 12 years old, they can consent to get the vaccine themselves.”
Laura Sextro is the CEO and co-founder of the Unity Project, an umbrella group that brings together organizations across America that are fighting against the vaccine mandates for children and fighting for medical freedom and parental rights.
“One of the bills in California, which is AB 2098—and I think that this is probably the most egregious bill that we’re seeing —states that any doctor that goes against the COVID narrative will lose their medical license,” Sextro says.
Controversial Drug Remdesivir Plays Key Role in COVID-Related Hospital Deaths: Dr. Ardis
The antiviral medication remdesivir has played a controversial role in the COVID-19 treatment protocols used by hospitals that many families allege resulted in the death of their loved ones.
Among the drug’s potential side effects is acute kidney failure, which many physicians argue is the source of the same symptom reported by the medical establishment to have been caused by COVID-19.
Dr. Bryan Ardis, CEO of Ardis Labs and host of The Dr. Ardis Show, said he watched his own father-in-law die in a hospital in February 2020 after being taken through the same hard-wired, standard-of-care protocols he would eventually witness playing out in the lives of others.
“It was the most traumatic thing I’d ever experienced in my whole life,” Ardis told The Epoch Times.
Among the multiple problems with his treatment, Ardis said, his father-in-law had been erroneously diagnosed with having the flu and given an antibiotic called vancomycin, which, like remdesivir, is known to cause acute kidney failure.
“Not only did he not have the flu, but the doctor also treated him with a horrifically toxic, last-resort antibiotic that doesn’t treat the flu,” he said.
When he asked the doctor why he had his father-in-law on the antibiotic that was causing his kidneys to fail, Ardis said the doctor told him that it was hospital protocol.
‘It Wasn’t From the Virus’
For Ardis, it became a foreshadowing of what was to come with the listed COVID symptoms in fact being caused by the drugs used to treat COVID, he alleged.
“In March 2020, every medical doctor started saying they had never seen a respiratory virus move from the lungs to attack the kidneys, which then causes acute kidney failure,” Ardis said.
But the kidney failure wasn’t from the virus, Ardis said.
Initially, Ardis said he thought they were using vancomycin because the stories in the news matched his own experience. However, he later found that the antiviral drug remdesivir, which itself is reported to cause acute kidney failure, was being used through emergency-use authorization to treat COVID before it was later approved by the Food and Drug Administration in October 2020.
Least Effective and Deadly: Study
Ardis’s research brought him to COVID protocols set by Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), who had deemed remdesivir as “safe and effective” based on an experimental trial in Africa during an Ebola outbreak.
In the study found in the New England Journal of Medicine, a safety board found remdesivir to be “the least effective and the deadliest drug in this trial,” before it was suspended, Ardis explained.
“Fifty-three percent of people they gave that drug to died,” Ardis said.
Ardis said he considered whether Fauci had been given bad advice.
“I go to the end of the study and … imagine my shock when I saw that it was actually funded by Fauci’s department at NIAID,” Ardis said. “He would have been given a monthly review of everything coming out of that Ebola trial. The safety board would have let him know it was the least effective and deadliest drug in the trial.”
For Ardis, the study, which predated Fauci’s “safe and effective” estimate, showed that Fauci was not being truthful, Ardis alleged.
Fauci then asked the federal government to buy all the experimental reserves of remdesivir from the California-based pharmaceutical company called Gilead, Ardis said.
Further research didn’t improve his medical opinion of remdesivir, Ardis said, leaving him to conclude that the kidney failure doctors were reporting to be caused by the virus was in fact caused by remdesivir.
“Doctors had no idea they were being set up to use a drug that had such toxic effects and was proven to be ineffective and very dangerous,” Ardis said.
Though NIAID didn’t respond to The Epoch Times’ request for comment, Fauci told reporters in 2020 during a White House press briefing that the data “shows that remdesivir has a clear cut significant, positive effect in diminishing the time to recovery. This is really quite important.”
A final 2020 report from the National Institute of Health said that remdesivir was “effective against viruses in the coronavirus family.”
The NIH said in its report that remdesivir accelerated recovery for hospitalized patients with severe COVID-19.
“Our findings show that remdesivir is a beneficial treatment for patients with COVID-19,” says study author Dr. John Beigel of NIAID in the report. “It may also help to conserve scarce health care resources, such as ventilators, during this pandemic.”
Physicians such as Dr. Arnold Weg reported to NBC News in 2020 that remdesivir helped him recover from COVID, and that from this personal experience, “I feel very strongly that it should be used.”
Dr. Aneesh Mehta at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta told NBC News in the 2020 report on remdesivir that “remdesivir will get many of our patients home to their families more rapidly and with less side effects.”
As public support for remdesivir grew, Ardis continued to give his second opinion, sharing what he believed to be the truth about remdesivir, COVID protocols, alternative treatments, and the then-imminent vaccines.
It was Ardis’s information that helped people who reported equally traumatic experiences with hospital protocols, such as Kristi Schmadl and Greta Crawford.
‘Enough Sedatives to Put Down a Horse’
Schmadl told The Epoch Times that she believes it was remdesivir that caused her mother’s death in a hospital, based on medical records that show a worsening of kidney levels with each dose.
In addition to not feeding her mother and giving her “enough sedatives to put down a horse,” Schmadl said hospital staff attempted to label her mother as Do Not Resuscitate (DNR).
“We had one doctor tell us that if we didn’t put a DNR on her, he would,” she said.
Schmadl’s mother, who had only one kidney, was allegedly given vancomycin, fentanyl, precedex, and other drugs to which Schmadl said she and her family never consented.
“They called us on Aug. 15 to tell us our mother had ‘expired,’” Schmadl said. “That’s the word they used.”
Schmadl connected with Crawford, who herself was being treated with remdesivir in a hospital when she demanded that hospital staff cease treatment, remove her IV, and let her leave.
“My husband wheeled me out,” Crawford told The Epoch Times. “I was still on oxygen and weak.”
Crawford said she’s the only person she knows of who was still allowed a family member to be inside with her for 12 hours a day, as hospital COVID protocols usually require that the patient be isolated from their families.
While in the hospital, Crawford said a nurse “pressured her” and her family to get vaccinated while being treated with remdesivir.
“After my first dose, I noticed my hands and feet swell,” Crawford said. “At the time, I didn’t know that it was my kidneys shutting down.”
When she asked her doctor what was going on, Crawford said he stared at the floor and mumbled, “COVID’s strange” before walking out.
“I’ve never seen a doctor act like that,” Crawford said.
Crawford had COVID for two weeks before she entered the hospital, and for that time she had not experienced the symptoms she experienced when given remdesivir, she said.
“My white blood cell count shot up, I got a blood clot in my leg, I would have vomiting—all of these symptoms I had not experienced at home,” she said.
After her husband took her home, Crawford said she spent two months on the couch healing.
“I had so much fluid in my lungs, and then I went through a detox process with different supplements and vitamins to try to get all of this stuff out of me,” Crawford said.
It was during this time that she began doing what many vaccine promoters were warning against at the time: She did her own research.
She followed Ardis’s podcasts, met Schmadl, and launched the website protocolkills.com to inform people “of the dangers of remdesivir, hospital protocols, and the true intended purpose of their use.”
Through her website, Crawford has gathered 170 stories of people whose loved ones died in hospitals throughout the United States, and offers alternatives to hospitals.
“It’s been a labor of love, because I don’t want people to suffer like I suffered,” she said.
Crawford works with families to get people out of hospitals with a hospital hostage hotline and provides education for those who want to know what red flags to look for when dealing with hospitals.
“It’s obvious what they’re doing now,” she said. “They need to be held accountable.”
For Crawford, hospitals have become “the new concentration camps.”
“But instead of dragging people in on trains, people are walking in willingly because they think they are going to get help, but they’re being murdered,” Crawford said.
Alina Chan and Matt Ridley, Viral: The Search for the Origin of Covid-19 (Harper: New York, 2021). 416 pp. ISBN: 978-0063139121. $19.99.
Something happened in 2019, probably towards the middle of the year. It might’ve been a single event, or perhaps a series of them. If it was an accident, it’s very possible that the people most directly implicated weren’t aware at first; some of them might still be uncertain about their responsibility. If it was deliberate, it’s unlikely anybody intended – let alone envisioned – what actually came to pass. Most people with subject expertise know or suspect that scientists are directly implicated in this event, but few will discuss it openly. I am talking, of course, about the release of SARS-CoV-2 into the human population.
Alina Chan and Matt Ridley’s Viral is, as far as I know, the only book from a major trade publisher to consider the problem of virus origins in anything approaching an objective light. Of necessity, its treatment is heavily compromised. Viral appeared in November 2021, as the mass vaccination campaign lent new political utility to virus terror and encouraged a sudden openness to lab-leak theories. Throughout Viral, from their dedication to “the people who have suffered and lost during the Covid-19 pandemic” to the final page, Chan and Ridley accordingly maximise the risk of Corona infection. More seriously, they undermine their own analysis by striving everywhere for an exaggerated moderation, often failing to draw the conclusions demanded by their own evidence and burying the lede. Probably Harper editors are as much to blame for this as the authors; the effect is to create a false equivalency between the natural and artificial origins theories, and to present a far weaker case for laboratory origins than is possible.
Among the weakest moments of the entire book are chapters 12 and 13, Chan and Ridley assume the guise of attorney making final statements to a jury, in favour of “Spillover” and “Accident” respectively. This isn’t a trial; these scenarios aren’t even mutually exclusive; and “Accident” is far from the only alternative to a zoonotic event. If anything, the lab-leak theory is the centrist view, between the benign and sinister extremes of zoonosis and bioattack. Thus do Chan and Ridley impose an intellectual frame upon the problem that simultaneously blinds readers to the full spectrum of possibility and enfeebles their own position.
But, for all of that, Viral is also a serious and useful book that provides valuable perspective on the recent history of laboratory leaks, which are far more common than almost anyone realises (Chapter 7); the recent history of gain-of-function research (Chapters 8 and 9); the deliberate obfuscations of the World Health Organisation (Chapter 10); and much else besides.
At its core, Viral is an extremely useful compendium of the evidence that the loose Twitter collective known (not altogether fortunately ) as the Decentralised Radical Autonomous Search Team Investigation COVID-19, or DRASTIC, has assembled on the origins of SARS-2. The evidence is rooted above all in the research and strange behaviour of a small group of scientists associated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, including the so-called bat-woman Shi Zhengli and her close collaborators, Ralph Baric at Chapel Hill and Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance.

“My heart was breaking to watch so many people suffering just to get information and help and I could not stand by and continue watching them go through this,” said Catherine “Cat” Parker, who in April 2021, was injured by Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) COVID-19 vaccine.
Within two weeks, the group attracted 200 members from all over the world “with stories that are heartbreaking, but also [inspire] resiliency to keep going through this,” Parker said.
The Defender interviewed three members of the group. Here are their stories.
Donna Zuk Adley: ‘I feel like a voodoo doll where someone keeps taking turns stabbing me in my different body systems’
Donna Zuk Adley, 64, a nurse from Connecticut, is co-administrator of the Vaccine Injury/Side Effects Support Group.
Adley holds degrees in criminal justice and legal studies and has a 33-year career in nursing.
She said she was reluctant to get the COVID-19 vaccine from the get-go — in part because she had “two previous reactions to vaccines, one of which [tetanus] left me with a permanent partial disability.” She was diagnosed with fibromyalgia after the tetanus shot.
“I dragged my heels for nine months because I did not want to get the vaccine,” Adley told The Defender.
“I had restricted my lifestyle, and did all the protocols to avoid COVID,” she said. “I had been working on a COVID floor with up to 32 COVID patients, and never got COVID.”
But after Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont in August 2021 mandated all workers in a broadly defined list of medical and long-term care facilities get vaccinated, Adley gave in and got her first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, on Aug. 11, 2021, and her second dose on Sept. 17, 2021.
She developed reactions soon after receiving both doses of the vaccine:
“After the first Moderna [dose], I had severe lower back pain that felt like shattered glass. I did not realize at the time that many have this symptom after the vaccines.
“[On] September 17, eight hours after my second Moderna [dose], I began to get the initial symptoms that I had expected (fever, muscle aches), [but] I felt very strange and weak, as if I had a mono relapse, which I hadn’t had in over a decade.”
Her symptoms worsened. According to Adley:
“Suddenly I began to have lapses in memory, first slightly, then it got worse. I realized that I couldn’t see small print. I have many reading glasses, and I tried five or six pairs before I realized I had blurred vision. This blurred vision was constant for four months, both near and far vision, and far vision [is] blurry intermittently now, nine months later.
“I began to feel confused, and texted to my granddaughter that I feel like I have a ‘brain disconnect.’ I lost my ability to think right, comprehend and follow directions.
“When work was explaining how to have my doctor fill out my FMLA [Family Medical Leave] paperwork, I was having a hard time following directions.”
The injuries that Adley sustained and the conditions she continues to experience include damage to her brain, heart, gastrointestinal tract and her vision.
Adley described the symptoms as “progressive and interchangeable,” coming and going for a few hours at a time, before reappearing again or new symptoms appearing.
She likened the experience to feeling like “a voodoo doll where someone keeps taking turns stabbing me in my different body systems,” and a “pinball machine in slow motion.”
Adley kept a notebook of her symptoms and injuries, and categorized them broadly as follows:
Brain and cognitive: “The most terrifying” injuries she experienced were “a loss of executive function and cognitive function” and a diagnosis of “autoimmune response from COVID-19 vaccine” from her doctor who said her symptoms matched those of autoimmune encephalitis.
She also described blurred vision and confusion, forgetfulness, some loss of short- and long-term memory, confusion, disorientation, an inability to follow instructions or find solutions, some loss of reasoning and judgment skills, slurred speech and difficulties with spoken and written language, sudden anger issues and paranoia, a skewed sense of taste or loss of taste, partial loss of hearing and difficulty performing normal activities such as walking up and down stairs.
Adley recalled telling a nurse’s aide she felt her “brain got dumbed down … like I dropped 50 IQ points,” and added, “I finally coined the term: I have a loss of thought process algorithms,” as a catch-all for the collection of brain function and cognitive symptoms she was experiencing.
Many of these symptoms, such as taste or hearing loss, still come and go, she said, adding she has “a two-second memory … if I don’t write it down, I will forget.”
Heart: Adley described severe edema in her feet and ankles, saying that as a nurse, she is “aware this could be a sign of congestive heart failure.” She also described symptoms of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, or POTS, which only recently subsided, including feeling like her “heart was being pumped up like a balloon.”
Adley also described alternating low and high blood pressure, fainting episodes and heart palpitations.
Gastrointestinal: Adley described “diarrhea, vomiting and dry heaves for months,” and quick alternations between feeling hungry and not hungry and an overall loss of “desire to eat anything that I used to have cravings for.” She said it was “like my food was staying in my stomach and not going anywhere.”
Lungs: Adley said she experienced “episodes of coughing for hours with clear phlegm” and then the coughing would “suddenly disappear.”
Muscles: Adley described “burning, boiling pain, terrible muscle spasms” that would travel through her body “in a quick wave.” Her muscle spasms, while now less severe, still continue when she lies down.
Skin: Adley described peeling skin at the tip of her fingertips and spontaneous bruising all over her body.
Adley also experienced intermittent sudden weakness in her ankles and knees, intermittently swollen lymph nodes and tinnitus that also was initially intermittent but “appears to be permanent in both ears.”
Together, these symptoms “affected everything,” Adley said. She was terminated from her job of 10 years because she “took too long” to return from family leave due to her vaccine injuries.
She also experienced an Epstein-Barr relapse and continues to experience fainting episodes.
Finding new employment has been challenging. Adley described going through “an entire month’s process to obtain a job, and they told me … my medical [vaccine] exemption was denied by corporate.”
This was despite the fact that her doctor wrote, in reference to Adley, an “autoimmune reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine” and that “this individual had significant side effects from prior COVID-19 vaccinations … The COVID vaccine is precluded because the risks of vaccination outweigh the benefits.”
The loss of her employment also meant the loss of her health insurance, according to Adley, who also said that “walk-ins were not accepting me.”
She said her neurologist told her that “the CDC [U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] is being very strict, and only allowing exemptions if you have paralysis, such as from Guillain Barre, or death.”
Kate: ‘I don’t think I’d be here’ if I took the second dose
Kate, a Minnesota teacher who asked that her full name be withheld, received her first and only COVID-19 vaccine, a dose of Moderna, on Feb. 16, 2021.
Kate told The Defender that she feels “lucky” she did not get another dose, despite almost doing so.
Kate said she heard of many people who had a reaction to the first dose, but a much worse reaction following the second dose. “I don’t think I’d be here,” she said, if she had received the second dose.
Kate got “super sick” after getting the Moderna vaccine, sustaining vaccine injuries including “tinnitus, head pressure, dizziness, bone pain, difficulty walking, heart enlargement and atrial fibrillation” — and “the most severe insomnia of my life.”
She feels better now than in the last 16 months and has done “a lot of natural healing,” she said, but added, “I don’t know if my heart will ever be the same.”
While she was previously very active physically, since the vaccine, she’s had to limit activities she used to enjoy, like hiking and biking.
Kate contracted COVID-19 in December 2021, but “it was nothing compared to the vaccine injury,” she said. “Absolutely nothing for me.”
Her injuries have affected her ability to work. Kate said:
“There were days I would literally drive into a parking lot at school and realize I had to go home … at least ten times, maybe more.
“I would drive into the parking lot and think, man, my legs are killing me. There’s no way I can get out of this car and go to work.”
Kate said she feels fortunate she could afford a private doctor, and one who has not been dismissive about her vaccine injuries.
“We’ve probably spent … a little over $10,000 out of pocket because of the private doctor co-pays, meeting the deductible, which is great compared to lots of other people. So I feel like I’ve had a lot more resources than some people … so I feel lucky.
“I was already seeing a … doctor before this happened to me, and she was more open. She recognized right away that something was wrong. She didn’t quite believe me right away, she was a little skeptical, but when she found out that my heart was not reacting the way it was … she said, ‘Oh my God, you’ve never had a heart issue before?’”
Her doctor recommended Kate visit a cardiologist, who initially was dismissive:
“Basically told me that I probably just got stressed out and that’s how I suddenly got atrial fibrillation, which I thought was hilarious.
“I went home and I was like, he’s doing the ‘anxiety’ card on me. He’s treating me like I’m a woman and oh, I just got so anxious over my shot.”
After leaving the cardiologist a poor review online and stating she was “really upset,” he retracted his original diagnosis and “agreed it was from the vaccine.”
For Kate, her most difficult experiences with vaccine injuries haven’t been with doctors, but stem from “the psychological pressure you get from other people.”
“The way that other people treat you has been terrible and I had probably five straight months I didn’t want to get out of bed.
“Mostly people think, ‘I don’t know, I’ve never seen it.’ If somebody got in a car accident, someone wouldn’t say, ‘well, I’ve never gotten in a car accident.’ Nobody would say that to you. So that emotional side is difficult.”
Ayman: ‘There is no human left in me’
Ayman, a graphic designer in Melbourne, Australia, who also requested his full name be withheld, received his first and only dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in late 2021.
“After 48 hours, I had this range of heartbeats, from resting to 160, all of a sudden, and I freaked out,” Ayman told The Defender. “I jumped, my head reached the ceiling, and I had to call the ambulance.”
Ayman’s experience with doctors and other healthcare practitioners mimicked those of many injured by the vaccines.
“I told them that I took the first dose of Pfizer … and then they said, ‘this is anxiety.’”
Ayman described what happened soon after he was vaccinated:
“The next day, my body went into, I don’t know, how can I explain it? If I open my eyes, I just shout and cry and go into hallucinations, a panic attack, anxiety, suicidal thoughts.
“But all of a sudden, these thoughts, with the nerve pain like electrical shock [along my] entire body, spinal cord to the brain … going into shakes and tremors, and I couldn’t even walk.
“Half of my brain was extremely not able to connect with the other side of the brain. So it was like, imbalanced.
“It’s like something not normal … I don’t know what happened to my brain, like something really not normal … I used to walk and I didn’t know how to come back home, barely use my phone on GPS and then come back home on my GPS even though I would walk just a few blocks over.”
His injuries are impacting every aspect of his life, Ayman said.
“I have extreme memory loss, and this is not normal. I’m a graphic designer, I work in creative work, and all of a sudden I don’t know who I am. I couldn’t drive. I couldn’t walk. I had to learn how to eat. I didn’t know how to hold a spoon, so I didn’t know how to eat.”
Ayman described experiencing “dementia, demoralization, depersonalization, dissociation, all of a sudden, at once.”
He also developed heart palpitations, “like my heart was either overbeating, or sometimes it’s not. Sometimes [being] a bit disoriented, vertigo, fatigue, all that kind of stuff.”
“And the top of my symptoms is, I don’t feel my body. I don’t feel the upper body, so there is no sensation there. I don’t have feeling in my face, in my ear … so I can’t find work. I can’t work. I can’t do anything. I’m basically disabled. I just walk a few steps out of my house just to go to the park a little bit and then come back home. But otherwise there is no mind.”
Ayman reported all these symptoms to his general practitioner and to the immunization center he had visited. However, “they didn’t offer any treatment, anything,” he said, other than a diagnosis of “anxiety,” a diagnosis of long COVID “without being tested positive for it,” and a referral to a psychologist.
Reflecting on his current condition, Ayman said, “I don’t have a past or a future, just barely the present. I don’t know what I’ve done yesterday or this morning. It’s nonexistent.”
“I’m just talking to you right now … and then that’s it,” he added. “I don’t have anything in my head.”
Support group members: ‘I feel I’m not alone’
Parker told The Defender that she decided to start her online support group for vaccine-injured individuals because she “felt so alone” — a sentiment that was shared by the other members of her group who spoke with The Defender.
“A lot of us have anxiety and depression from this now,” said Parker. “And I hear people who just want to give up or they feel like they’re dying or that [they] wanted not to wake up.”
Experiences like these prompted Parker to establish her group. She said:
“My anxiety and depression were getting worse, and my daughter said to me, ‘Mom, you have always been the person to help others, maybe you need to focus on that for now.’
“So I created my support group to focus more on offering support to those that have immediate needs, whether it is emotional support, resources for food, housing, rent, financial assistance, and educational/medical information related to helping them get treatment, medication, and other [needs].”
Parker described “a two-and-a-half hour phone call with somebody the other day who just needed to talk. That’s all they wanted.”
“Sometimes, when you’re in your own head and you’ve got your own thing going on, it’s hard to help yourself,” added Parker. “So I wanted to be a platform for people to be able to help those other people find resources, find others they can connect with.”
Kate told The Defender she initially started a tinnitus group, before joining Parker’s group. For Kate, her membership in such groups is “so very valuable.”
“Any group that I’ve been in has been fantastic,” she said. “A lot of it is just emotional support, suggestions for treatment … and then sometimes, when I’m just super stressed or up at night … I know there’s always somebody online that I can message.”
“It just makes you feel not alone,” she said.
Ayman also finds the group helpful, in a context where family members and other individuals in his life tell him to “just get over yourself” — a reaction he described as “like a knife in my heart.”
“The emotional part of it is really, really helpful,” Ayman said. “you go in a group, they understand these symptoms, but in real life, nobody gets you … to them, it’s just anxiety.”
Adley told The Defender she found the group when she “began looking for help and support” because she “felt so alone in this.”
Parker’s group also played an important role in helping members go public with stories that often are not only emotionally difficult to recount, but also frequently censored by social media platforms.
“It has been difficult to get out our stories to the world,” Parker said. “Everywhere we turn, we are blocked and banned on social media. Our videos are removed for ‘community standards violations,’ which makes no sense when they are videos of our pain and suffering or us going through tremors and brain fog.
“We are ridiculed and made fun of as crazy, lying pigs, ‘anti-vax’ and people with agendas to stop others from getting the vaccine. It breaks my heart, how far humanity has fallen that it is okay to make fun of others’ suffering and downplay what others are going through.”

We discuss how such coincidence could arise, what the patented gene is involved in, and why the sequence in question has already been surrounded in controversy and attracted countless conspiracy theories.
