It’s Time We Hold These People Accountable; Let the Lawsuits Begin
By Steve Kirsch
I’m going to pay for the lawsuit to sue Springer and their corrupt editorial board at BMC Infectious Diseases for their decision to retract the Skidmore paper; the most popular paper in their history.
The Skidmore paper is about to be retracted by the journal. They’ve already decided that the paper cannot be amended and must be retracted. They wouldn’t answer any questions from me about why it couldn’t be amended when I asked nicely, so we’ll find out why the paper couldn’t be amended under deposition and penalty of purjury. That’s the way they will prefer to settle this. That’s just fine with me.
The Skidmore paper is a clear cut case.
This paper was the #1 most popular paper in the history of the journal.
But now, after publishing it, they have decided that they don’t like it because it shows that hundreds of thousands of people have been killed by the vaccine. They said that the survey wasn’t representative, but NOBODY asked to see the survey data!! So how could they know? We’ll find out in court when we depose each and every member of their editorial board.
I’m prepared to fund all the legal costs to do this.
If you agree with me that we need to sue these people, please consider subscribing to my Substack so we will have the war chest needed to go after this publisher and other publishers.
Your $5 a month (or $50/yr) will make a meaningful difference in our ability to take these journals and their corrupt editorial boards to court.
Here’s the email I just sent to the editor-in-chief
Background reading on the Skidmore paper and the retraction
- New peer-reviewed study: >217,000 Americans killed by the COVID vaccines in just the first year alone!
- Covid vaccine injury causes vaccine hesitancy – new peer reviewed paper finds the bleeding obvious by REBEKAH BARNETT.
- Covid Vaccines Killed 278,000 Americans by the end of 2021, Peer Reviewed Study Finds. This article by Igor Chudov notes that this is in line with other estimates.
- Video interview with Mark Skidmore.
Articles about the retraction
- Mark Skidmore’s paper showing the vaccines killed over 200,000 people in 2021 will be retracted by the journal
- The Retraction of the Skidmore (2023) Article on Covid Vaccine Uptake and Injuries. This was authored by Mark Skidmore himself and contains all the correspondence.
- Skidmore article on Covid vaccine uptake and injuries retracted. An excellent summary by REBEKAH BARNETT.
The tl;dr version is Skidmore has published over 70 papers without a problem and this one should have been no exception. Some powerful people didn’t like the conclusion, so they told the editorial board to make up some excuses for retracting the paper with no leave to amend.
Stephanie Lee: a corrupt journalist
There are honest journalists and then there is Stephanie Lee.
Stephanie Lee, a writer for the Chronicle of Higher Education, contacted Skidmore about the retraction and then wrote a one-sided hit piece on the Skidmore paper that you can read here.
Stephanie should have written about how the paper was improperly retracted by the journal, but chose not to.
I asked Stephanie if she would consent to a recorded video dialog with Skidmore to resolve the differences of opinion, and she declined through a third party.
After all, journalists should never be held accountable for what they write, right?
It’s time to expose these people publicly and hold them accountable for their actions in corrupting scientific integrity.
They will ignore my settlement offer which will give us an opportunity to depose all the board members involved in the retraction and make it all public. You’ll get a ringside seat to watch scientific corruption at its finest.
