U.S. FDA & CDC Shared Database Now Shows Over 20,000 COVID ‘vaccine’ Deaths in First Year of Experimental Gene Therapy


By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, December 29, 2021


   As of December 10, 2021 the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows a total of 20,622 deaths associated with the COVID-19 gene therapy bioweapon shots which began wide-scale implementation in the general population just over a year ago.1

   To provide context, this writer researched the VAERS for flu vaccine deaths and found that same database shows all flu vaccines in existence between the years of 2015-2019 only logged a total of 121 deaths over that five year period, or an average of 24 seasonal flu vaccine deaths per year.2

Russia Forced Into War in Ukraine Amidst Civil War Started Under Obama and Exacerbated by Biden


U.S. War Propaganda Over Past Several Months Designed to Distract from COVID ‘vaccine’ Damages and Deaths, Ensure Profits for U.S.-based Military Equipment & Arms providers and Boost Biden’s Fledging Poll Numbers.

Fort Fairfield Journal, March 9, 2022

   Responding to a steadily encroaching enemy line and threats to his country’s natural resources sales, Russian President Vladimir Putin did what any responsible leader would do in his position when he took steps to defend his country and its resources with the most recent military actions in two breakaway provinces in Ukraine.

   While it is being reported that Putin has “invaded Ukraine” that is not in the spirit of what actually took place once one considers the context of an ongoing civil war in the country where Putin recognized the independence and offered military support to two breakaway provinces which were more Russian than Ukrainian and had been fighting for their independence from the Ukraine government for the past eight years.  However, there are many plateaus of play in this multi-dimensional chess game which range from territorial expansion by NATO which threatens Moscow; the threat to the profitability of Russia’s natural resources; the development of  Ukraine’s own recently discovered natural resources which would render them more aligned with the West; fresh water to supply Crimea; and Russia’s own internal demographic crisis where population and birth rates are declining, thus threatening the ability of the Russian military to stave off similar external threats in the years to come.

NMCC Student of the Year, Ryan Ashby Honored Alongside Peers


PRESQUE ISLE, Maine— On April 27th, the Maine Community College System (MCCS) recognized this year’s Student of the Year award recipients on a statewide Zoom call with an audience of educators, legislators, the MCCS Board of Trustees, and Maine business leaders. Traditionally, winners are announced at a luncheon near Augusta; however, with communities still adapting after two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s ceremony took place virtually.

   NMCC was the fourth of seven colleges to present their award winner, and Dean of Students Matt Grillo introduced business administration senior Ryan Ashby as the 2022 NMCC Student of the Year. Grillo called attention to Ashby’s excellent academic standing, abundance of motivation, and passion for supporting mental health through fitness within the community.

Pfizer’s COVID Gene Therapy “vaccine” Found to Convert into Full DNA in Human Liver Cells:  Peer-Reviewed Study Finds


The In Vitro Study Suggests Liver Cells’ Genome Could Become Infected with Spike Protein DNA in Perpetuity and the Body’s Immune System May Begin to Attack the Liver as if it were a virus.

By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, March 9, 2022


   A peer-reviewed study conducted by Lund University in Sweden, and published in the journal, Current Issues in Molecular Biology, found that Pfizer/BioNTech’s COVID-19 mRNA ‘vaccine’ can convert into actual DNA within liver cells in as little as six hours after introduction.1

   The researchers studied the effects of the alleged ‘vaccine’ on liver cells in vitro - which means the cells were in a dish in a lab.  The authors state in the discussion section of the medical paper, “In this study we present evidence that COVID mRNA vaccine BNT162b2 is able to enter the human liver cell line Huh7 in vitro.  BNT162b2 is reverse transcribed intracellularly into DNA as fast as 6 hours after BNT162b2 exposure.  A possible mechanism for reverse transcription is through endogenous reverse transcriptase LINE-1, and the nucleus protein distribution of LINE-1 is elevated by BNT162b2.”

Researchers Find Microplastic Particles in Lungs; Face Masks Might be Source


By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, May 4, 2022

      In 2021, researchers in the United Kingdom looked at lung tissue obtained from lung samples and found microplastics in all regions of the lungs, including the deeper section. According to the study, this is the first time microplastics have been found in human lung tissue samples using μFTIR spectroscopy.  The abundance of microplastics within samples, significantly above that of blanks, supports human inhalation as a route of environmental exposure. Microplastics with dimensions as small as 4 μm but also, surprisingly,  greater than 2mm were identified within all lung region samples, with the majority being fibrous and fragmented.  While the cloth/disposable surgical face masks people wore continuously for 8 hours a day or longer throughout the COVID plannedemic do contain microplastics, the researchers hesitated to indicate an actual source for the contamination of the lungs with microplastics.

WHO Now Looking Into Hearing Problems Resulting from COVID-19 “vaccines”


By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, May 5, 2022

   The World Health Organization (WHO) is now investigating hearing loss and ringing in the ears as potential side effects of the experimental COVID-19 "vaccines" which were rolled out to the public in record speeds with no reliable testing for long term safety issues late in 2020.

   The WHO Pharmaceuticals Newsletter1 recently published data looking at expected numbers compared to actual reports from people who experienced hearing-related symptoms after receiving a COVID-19 shot. Researchers compared hundreds of stories from people in 10 countries who received either the Pfizer, Moderna, or AstraZeneca vaccine.

Test Kits are not Approved by FDA for Safety or Accuracy


By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, December 29, 2021

   Some home COVID-19 do-it-yourself test kits are being sold with the lethal chemical Sodium Azide as part of the reagent process.

   It was recently revealed by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) that Abbott, one of the manufacturers of these kits, adds the lethal chemical to their test kits.1  

   The test kit results are being illegitimately required by the U.S. CDC for international air travel for people two years old and up coming into the U.S., even though the CDC has no authority to issue or enforce such orders because they are neither a legislative nor law enforcement agency.

Democrat Congressman, Jared Golden Votes Against Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” Bill; Yet, Still Supports it



By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, January 26, 2022

   Maine’s Democrat Congressman, Jared Golden was the only House Democrat to vote against Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” communist-inspired boondoggle.  The reason he voted against his party is not because he’s in opposition to the economy-crushing and society-imprisoning bill, but rather, because he doesn’t think it raises enough taxes on society and provide enough free money to pay people to stay home from work. 

   Rep. Golden said he would support the bill if it had even higher taxes on the wealthy and greater amounts of free social welfare money for the masses.

   On Sunday, May 01, 2022 at 8:16 p.m. the Maine State Police responded to I-295 southbound at mile marker 16 for a motor vehicle crash involving a motorcycle that had been reported operating north in the southbound lanes and had struck another vehicle head on. When emergency responders arrived, they identified the operator of the motorcycle as 47-year-old John Rivard of Lewiston. Rivard was operating a black 2011 Harley Davidson motorcycle and had entered onto the interstate system from the exit 15 southbound off-ramp. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The other vehicle involved was a brown 2010 Honda Accord and the operator from Brunswick was not injured. Both I-295 southbound lanes were closed to traffic by Maine DOT for approximately 2 ½ hours to allow law enforcement time to process the scene. The crash remains under active investigation.



PLEASANT POINT - On Thursday, April 21, 2022, at approximately 8:11 p.m., the Pleasant Point Police Department was requested by a relative to respond to an apartment at 27 Thunder Road in Perry to check on the well-being of 43-year-old Kimberly Neptune. Upon entry, Neptune was discovered deceased and the circumstances of her death are suspicious. Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit North was called and is now investigating the death with the assistance of Pleasant Point PD. An autopsy is being performed today at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Dana of Perry and 38-year-old Kailie A. Brackett of Perry for the murder of 43-year-old Kimberly Neptune also of Perry.  Both Dana and Brackett have been arrested on one count each of murder.  Dana and Brackett were arrested during a traffic stop on Rt. 190.  The initial appearance is not scheduled at this time. Both defendants will be held at the Washington County Jail pending their initial court appearance.



CARROLL PLT - On Wednesday, April, 20, 2022 at approximately 2:20 p.m., the Maine State Police requested assistance from the Fire Marshal’s office while responding to a disorderly complaint at a residence at 1821 Main Road in Carroll Plantation. The initial complaint involved an adult female causing damage to the residence. An additional report indicated there was a fire at the home. Upon arrival, law enforcement personnel observed that the home was burning. An investigation established that the fire was intentionally set.

SEARSMONT - On Thursday, April 14, 2022 at approximately 12:30 pm, Maine State Troopers with Troop D were assisting the Knox County Sheriff’s Office with an attempt to locate 35-year old Grace Barter of Searsmont.  Barter was believed to be in violation of her conditional release from the Knox County Jail for Domestic Violence Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and in contact with her 18-month-old daughter which was a concern to the Department of Health and Human Services. (DHHS).

   Troopers gathered information that Barter may at a residence at 23 Witcher Road in Searsmont. Troopers arrived at the Searsmont address and spoke with Barter’s boyfriend, 39-year-old Dustin Stimpson of Searsport who stated Barter was inside.  Barter refused to come outside, and other units responded.  Barter eventually came to the door and was arrested for a Class C Felony Violation of Conditional Release. 

   Troopers observed Stimpson walk a short distance into the woods and appeared to be discretely burying an item into the leaves with his foot. The item he was trying to bury contained approximately 40.5 grams of cocaine (street value of approximately $8,000).  He confessed that the drugs were cocaine and were from out of state.  Due to prior convictions for drug trafficking and the weight of the narcotics, Stimpson was arrested and charged with Aggravated Furnishing of Schedule W Drugs, Class A.  Stimpson and Barter were transported to the Waldo County Jail.  The 18-month-old child is now in the custody of DHHS.
