    STRANGE DAZE: On Pins and Needles

    STRANGE DAZE: On Pins and Needles

    Every October, the American Society of Anesthesiologists [the ASA] hosts the largest medical specialty meeting of its kind for thousands and thousands of anesthesiologists from around the world. This year’s meeting is being held in San Francisco from October 13th to 17th.
    To recognize the importance of anesthesia in the evolution of surgery, and to commemorate the first public demonstration of surgical anesthesia administered to a patient undergoing surgery [by William Morton on October 16th, 1846], called “World Anesthesia Day”, I present a different episode of the Strange Daze podcast each day of the meeting.
    Today’s Episode is On Pins and Needles. It’s a true story about trying to master spinal anesthesia. While spinal anesthesia can be a beautiful and elegant alternative to general anesthesia, every anesthetic technique has limitations, and dealing with the limitations of spinal anesthesia can be a terrifying experience for the anesthesia resident.

It’s a true story about administering my first anesthetic to a baby having a routine hernia repair that devolved into one of the most terrifying cases of my early career. How can a routine anesthetic go so wrong? Truth be told, in about a million and a half different ways.

    Plasmid DNA Contamination of Pfizer mRNA Vaccines Confirmed! featuring Dr. Phillip Buckhaults

    Plasmid DNA Contamination of Pfizer mRNA Vaccines Confirmed! featuring Dr. Phillip Buckhaults

    In February, Kevin McKernan, CSO of Medicinal Genomics, was deep sequencing Pfizer mRNA vaccines when he discovered that every sample he tested was contaminated with large quantities of plasmid DNA. A plasmid is a circular piece of DNA integral in the manufacturing process of mRNA vaccines, but it doesn’t belong in the final shot going into arms, nor is it a listed component of either the Moderna or Pfizer mRNA vaccines. McKernan re-tested multiple different vaccine samples from multiple different lots using multiple different methods, but consistently got the same result: substantial plasmid DNA contamination in every Pfizer vaccine sample tested. McKernan published his findings but received no coverage by the MSM, nor was he contacted by Pfizer, the CDC, or the FDA. When I interviewed Kevin in April, no other lab in the US had confirmed McKernan’s results. Now they have.

    McKernan’s findings have been repeated and confirmed by Dr. Phillip Buckhaults, a cancer genomics expert from the University of South Carolina. On September 18th, Buckhaults testified before the South Carolina Senate Medical Affairs Ad-Hoc Committee on DHEC and presented his findings. There’s no longer any doubt that substantial quantities of plasmid DNA contaminated the Pfizer mRNA vaccines injected into humans. The issue that needs to be addressed is: What are the human health effects of being injected with 200-billion plasmid DNA fragments per jab? The MSM, the FDA, the CDC, and Pfizer have been dismissive of the potential public health consequences of injecting hundreds of billions of DNA fragments contained in each jab into the arms of hundreds of millions of humans. Two potential problems identified by both McKernan and Buckhaults is the risk of cancer transformation and immune targeting of cells taking up the vaccine. Today, I cover highlights of that September 18th South Carolina Senate hearing featuring Dr. Phillip Buckhaults discussing the plasmid DNA contamination of the Pfizer vaccines, what it could mean, and what should be done about it.

Binge worthy!!

Obsessed with this podcast! This needs to be a Netflix documentary

desperately single ,

The Biden podcast episode was intolerable

But the bigger issue is your using sound bites from the disgraced, dethroned Tucker Carlson speaking to Biden’s dementia. Wow, stooping a notch too low. And to say he has an agenda against Biden is putting it mildly.
I will Never listen again but not a problem cuz you’ve disappeared… good riddance

Excellent

Highly recommend this podcast. Dr Sweeney is very articulate and demonstrates without hyper sensationalism the possible origins of Covid.
