(Jul. 21, 2022) — During his opening segment Thursday night, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host Tucker Carlson raised questions regarding the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines, citing several scientific studies reporting evidence of “serious side effects.”
Carlson opened the topic in light of the revelation Thursday morning that Joe Biden tested “positive” for the virus after appearing ill, at least to Carlson, while he was speaking in Israel last week.
Carlson was critical of Biden for allegedly coughing in close proximity to others during his address, although at the time Biden was not reported to have received a “positive” COVID test result nor to be suffering from any other malady.
On Tuesday, the White House said today, Biden tested “negative,” making Thursday morning’s test his reported first “positive” result.
Carlson cited a German study showing that “1 in 5,000” German citizens has suffered a “serious” adverse event after taking the shot or shots.
Biden has taken two vaccinations plus two boosters, the White House reported in Thursday’s press release.
Toward the end of the segment, Carlson hosted Dr. Harvey Risch, MD, PhD, who has been outspoken about what he believes is a lockstep approach to COVID on the part of U.S. health agencies, which have exclusively encouraged Americans to “get vaccinated” over early treatment.
Risch is one of a relatively small number of physicians and scientists who have cautioned against blanket vaccinating of the population during a pandemic as well as the composition of the COVID-19 injections, which are built on mRNA technology developed by Dr. Robert W. Malone in the late 1980s.
Malone is one of the physicians speaking out against the advisability of taking the vaccines if one is reasonably healthy and “corruption” within the FDA, NIH and CDC.
Biden, too, has ordered Americans to take the shots, and his military commanders are discharging members unwilling to do so. To date, thousands of servicemen have been dismissed or relieved of duties because of their vaccination status.
Last July, Biden said anyone receiving a vaccine would not contract COVID-19.
As of Wednesday, the CDC continues to say that “COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective” and encourages parents to vaccinate children as young as six months old under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) approved last month after very limited clinical testing.
Carlson’s position strikingly opposes the “mainstream” narrative, which has always supported the government’s position of “safe and effective” COVID-19 vaccines.
