In The American Thinker, Thomas Lifson details the shocking revisions to COVID-19 death totals provided by a Lisbon court. Lifson quotes Mordechai Sones, writing:
Following a citizen’s petition, a Lisbon court was forced to provide verified COVID-19 mortality data, reports AndreDias.net.
According to the ruling, the number of verified COVID-19 deaths from January 2020 to April 2021 is only 152, not about 17,000 as claimed by government ministries.
All the “others” died for various reasons, although their PCR test was positive.
Let us hope a reckoning is coming for the politicians, bureaucrats, and academics who overhyped the dangers of COVID and used it to inflict useless draconian measures like lockdowns and school closings that have inflicted gigantic damage on entire nations.
I wish my hope were based on stronger foundations than I currently can see, though. Our media are entirely uninterested in this scandal.

Eric Clapton “The Propaganda Said the Vaccine Was Safe for Everyone”
Famed rock guitarist Eric Clapton has slammed the Astra Zeneca vaccine after getting two doses and having such horrible side effects he wasn’t sure he’d play again. Clapton told a friend in a letter (made public with Clapton’s permission) that after the second shot “my hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again.” The Blaze’s Dave Urbanski reports:
Legendary guitarist Eric Clapton said he suffered “disastrous” side effects from his COVID-19 vaccine treatments and blamed “propaganda” insisting that the shots are safe.
What are the details?
Rolling Stone reported that the 76-year-old musician — known the world over for his stints with the Yardbirds and Cream in the 1960s as well as his long solo career marked by classic songs such as “Layla” and “Wonderful Tonight” — in February got an initial AstraZeneca vaccine shot.
The magazine cited a letter Clapton wrote describing his ordeal to architect and anti-lockdown activist Robin Monotti Graziadei, who shared it with the guitarist’s permission. Rolling Stone said it confirmed the authenticity of the letter — but that a Clapton rep didn’t immediately respond to its request for comment.
“I took the first jab of AZ and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days,” Clapton wrote in the letter, according to the magazine. “I recovered eventually and was told it would be twelve weeks before the second one…”
He added that “about six weeks later I was offered and took the second AZ shot, but with a little more knowledge of the dangers. Needless to say the reactions were disastrous, my hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again,” Rolling Stone said.
Clapton also shared in the letter that he suffers from “peripheral neuropathy and should never have gone near the needle” and that “the propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone,” the magazine reported.
“I continue to tread the path of passive rebellion and try to tow [sic] the line in order to be able to actively love my family, but it’s hard to bite my tongue with what I now know,” the guitarist also wrote, according to Rolling Stone.
‘Stand and Deliver’
Clapton hit the headlines late last year for a related reason: an anti-lockdown song “Stand and Deliver” — penned by iconic vocalist Van Morrison and recorded and released by Clapton.
As you might imagine the guitarist took a lot of grief from the left over the tune — as did Morrison.
Eric Clapton Ostracized for Exposing the Vaccine’s Effects
In a recent interview, legendary guitarist Eric Clapton spoke about his being ostracized by his friends for having spoken up about his terrible ordeal with the COVID-19 vaccination. Dave Urbanski reports in The Blaze:
Legendary guitarist Eric Clapton said his musician friends stopped communicating with him after he recently spoke out about his “disastrous” COVID-19 side effects.
“I’ve tried to reach out to fellow musicians,” Clapton said during a video Q&A mostly about his COVID-19 vaccine experience and his reaction to the powers-that-be afterward. “I just don’t hear from them anymore. My phone doesn’t ring very often. I don’t get that many texts and emails any more. It’s quite noticeable.”
Clapton’s aforementioned statements come at the very end of the below video, just before the 24-minute mark — but the whole interview is pretty eye-opening:
According to Vulture.com, Clapton also said, “I was ostracized. And I could feel that everywhere.”
What else did Clapton say?
Clapton added that after speaking out he “did get some flack from the people I least wanted to get flack from,” but on the positive side he welcomed the prospect of “becoming a nuisance for [political leaders]. I’d love to be an annoyance to some of them that sit ’round that table; that would give me tremendous satisfaction.”
