(Feb. 19, 2023) — Over three hours long, Episode 5 of the new video series, “VR (Vaccines Revealed) 23,” contains commentary from Dr. Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH; Dr. Suzanne Humphries, MD; an interview with Dr. David Chestnut, DC, about flu vaccines by the late Dr. Toni Lynn Bark, MD; and board-certified psychiatrist Dr. Andrew Kaufman.
Conducted prior to March 3, 2020 when Dr. Bark passed away, in his interview Chestnut questioned whether the medical profession had been “bought” but concluded he did not believe that to be the case. Rather, he said, they are placed in a position to be implementers of “policy” issued “from government.”
“I think the flu shot is the canary in the coalmine,” he told Bark at approximately the 14-minute mark, claiming that “no data” existed to show it to be effective. He opposed “mandatory” flu vaccinations for healthcare workers and reported that the historical record showed the incidence of death from flu has risen since the 1980s, even as the percentage of the population receiving inoculation between then and 2000 climbed from 15% to 85%.
During her lifetime, Bark, too, questioned the medical establishment after holding positions of responsibility within it.
Launched on February 14, VR 23 presents a new episode each night at 9:00 p.m. EST which is available for free viewing for 24 hours, with Episode 5 available until 9:00 p.m. Sunday along with a 54-minute “bonus video.” There are a total of nine videos as described by host Patrick Gentempo, DC.
Following Chestnut, VR 23 Gentempo presents the second part of a three-part interview with McCullough, who since early 2021 has been an outspoken advocate for health freedom, early treatment for COVID-19 and an opponent of the mass vaccination program launched in December 2020 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) due to what he has described as alarming safety signals.
At the outset, Gentempo asked McCullough about his own case of COVID-19, which McCullough said he treated with “drugs” such as hydroxychloroquine, ezithromycin and “corticosteroids” as well as “nutraceuticals.”
“I was tightly communicating at that point in time with Senator Johnson, and Senator Johnson strongly believed that this was a time for doctors’ judgment,” McCullough recalled, “that doctors’ judgment was going to be critical to the pandemic response.” “No one was telling us what to do. I mean, there was just no guidance,” he said, “people were getting test results and going home with no guidance…That was the state of affairs from March of 2020 all the way through to the historic testimony hearings.”
McCullough was apparently referencing his November 19, 2020 appearance before the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, along with two other physicians who questioned the government and medical establishment’s responses to the COVID-19 “pandemic.”
He received a “letter” instructing him to testify to Congress, McCullough said, which resembled “getting called to jury duty.” He was asked to submit a “700-word speech of what you’re going to say,” he told Gentempo.
At that point, McCullough said, he considered the invitation to be an opportunity for him to share the “data” on then-recent research and such treatment options as ivermectin, monoclonal antibodies and corticosteroids, among others.
An academic physician, McCullough posts on TruthSocial and Twitter daily as well as on Substack, referencing medical research wherein the authors have increasingly found connections to COVID-19 vaccination and serious adverse events.
