DoD incompetence or hiding data?

| February 9, 2022

Poe brings our attention to something that’s been playing out over the last couple weeks. Either the government is attempting to coverup complications from the COVID vaccine or they are stunningly incompetent at keeping track of servicemember’s health data. You decide.

Whistleblowers share DOD medical data that blows vaccine safety debate wide open

Data, transparency, and surveillance. That is what has been missing from the greatest experiment on humans of all time throughout this pandemic. Now, military medical whistleblowers have come forward with what they claim is perhaps the most accurate and revealing data set on vaccine safety one could possibly find.

The pro-pharma politicians and media claim the CDC’s pharmacosurveillance tool “VAERS” is not good enough to trigger investigations into the shots because anyone can supposedly submit a vaccine adverse event entry. Thus, all the concerning safety signals from VAERS are being ignored, even though that system was put in place as a consolation to the public for absolving vaccine manufacturers of liability. Well, now some military whistleblowers are coming forward to present data that, if verified, would signal extremely disturbing safety concerns about the vaccine that make the VAERS data look like child’s play.

On Monday, during Sen. Ron Johnson’s five-hour hearing on a “COVID-19: Second Opinion,” Ohio attorney Thomas Renz, who has been representing clients suing the vaccine mandates, presented DOD medical billing data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) that paints a shockingly disturbing picture of the health of our service members in 2021.

According to the military, DMED is the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Branch’s (AFHSB) “web-based tool to remotely query de-identified active component personnel and medical event data contained within the Defense Medical Surveillance System (DMSS).” In other words, it contains every ICD medical billing code for any medical diagnosis in the military submitted for medical insurance billing during any given period of time. Three military doctors have presented queried data to Renz that shows a shocking and sudden spike in nearly every ICD code for common vaccine injuries in 2021.

In a declaration under penalty of perjury that Renz plans to use in federal court, Drs. Samuel Sigoloff, Peter Chambers, and Theresa Long — three military doctors — revealed that there has been a 300% increase in DMED codes registered for miscarriages in the military in 2021 over the five-year average. The five-year average was 1,499 codes for miscarriages per year. During the first 10 months of 2021, it was 4,182. As Renz explained to me in an interview with TheBlaze, these doctors queried the numbers for hundreds of codes from 2016 through 2020 to establish a baseline five-year average. These codes were generally for ailments and injuries that medical literature has established as being potential adverse effects of the vaccines.

The DoD shot back that the data being used was faulty. There was a “glitch” in the system that had been there for years.

Military spokesman claims 5 random years of DOD medical surveillance system were plagued by a giant glitch

The military’s vital national security shield depends on the health of its service members. According to a spokesman for the Defense Health Agency, every data point for five years in the agency’s entire epidemiological surveillance system – Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) – was one giant glitch. Oh, and that glitch magically stopped in January 2021, but it still wasn’t detected until Thomas Renz testified before Sen. Ron Johnson last Monday that this data existed!

Last Monday, attorney Thomas Renz came forward with DMED data downloaded by several named and unnamed military physicians showing unnatural increases in numerous medical diagnoses in the military in 2021, completely out of sync with the previous five-year averages. He presented hundreds of these concerning safety signal data points to Sen. Ron Johnson last week and publicized several examples at the hearing. Three military doctors signed a sworn affidavit to be used in a federal lawsuit attesting to the fact that the data correlates with their clinical experience in treating soldiers in 2021 and that in their professional opinion, the mass vaccination is the most likely culprit of these increased injuries and ailments.

Here are a few of the data points out of hundreds of ICD codes showing a massive increase in 2021 outpatient diagnoses over the preceding five-year average. They are detailed in a letter from Sen. Ron Johnson to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin:

  • Hypertension – 2,181% increase
  • Diseases of the nervous system – 1,048% increase
  • Malignant neoplasms of esophagus – 894% increase
  • Multiple sclerosis – 680% increase
  • Malignant neoplasms of digestive organs – 624% increase
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome – 551% increase
  • Breast cancer – 487% increase
  • Demyelinating – 487% increase
  • neoplasms of thyroid and other endocrine glands – 474% increase
  • Female infertility – 472% increase
  • Pulmonary embolism – 468% increase
  • Migraines – 452% increase
  • Ovarian dysfunction – 437% increase
  • Testicular cancer – 369% increase
  • Tachycardia – 302% increase

This is in addition to the original data Renz revealed to Sen. Johnson showing a tenfold increase in diagnoses for neurological issues, a 300% increase in miscarriage diagnoses, and a total cancer diagnosis increase of about 300%.

One would think this data would be the biggest national news story for the ensuing week, but the revelation was met with radio silence. Then, late Monday night, PolitiFact finally drops its obligatory “fact-check” and posts the first and only response from a defense official. Shockingly, they validate the data, but suggest without cause that somehow the 2016-2020 data in the system was all a glitch and that they will get to the bottom of it.

Officials compared numbers in the DMED with source data in the DMSS and found that the total number of medical diagnoses from those years “represented only a small fraction of actual medical diagnoses.” The 2021 numbers, however, were up-to-date, giving the “appearance of significant increased occurrence of all medical diagnoses in 2021 because of the underreported data for 2016-2020,” Graves said.

The DMED system has been taken offline to “identify and correct the root-cause of the data corruption,” Graves said.
What’s next? Are they going to tell us the VAERS data from 1990 through 2020 was just a glitch, in order to accommodate the new 2021 sky-high baseline?

This statement, taken at face value, is the equivalent of a political and national security nuclear bomb that requires immediate follow-up questions just to make sense of it, yet PolitiFact takes this absurdity at face value and goes on to rule the articles on the DMED data “false.”

My DD214 is my woobie, I shall not want.
It covereth me in green pastures………

(in other words, I’m SO glad I’m retired, lo, these 20+ years, and no longer have to suffer these DOD fools, gladly or otherwise.)

My sympathies to the current crop of active duty & recently not-active-duty. Think of all the headaches they’ll have to put up with when they’re bodies react to The Jabs, and all the denials and obfuscations they’ll have to put with from VA.

Think “Agent Orange” & Vietnam. Think Sandbox I & II in the desert. All brought up to today’s current crop of poisons.

Let’s see… who do I believe? Is it a number of military physicians who are saying there is an increase in the number of adverse reactions, mirroring reports from doctors all over the world who are being silenced by Big Pharma, or the Department of Defense who says to ignore the data presented because it is somehow misleading over the very specific 5 year period mysteriously becoming normal in January 2021? Decisions, decisions…


> Either the government is attempting to coverup complications from the COVID vaccine or they are stunningly incompetent at keeping track of servicemember’s health data.

The two are not mutually exclusive.


“We investigated ourselves and……”


So even with the ICD codes being ‘loosened’ or ‘unstuck’ from the system for a period 2016-2020, what about using the prior years’ data as a baseline?
Or, someone locally with a stable resident population, say SOCOM or Service Academies, get the fk off their lazy asses and run the tape.
This is by far the largest mismanagement of US Government employee data outside of the OPM hack or maybe the NPRC fire, but in terms of cost? This is felony-level malfeasance.

Just like a child, the DoD said the problem was with the evidence presented against it.


There are many stories concerning nurses and medical data input technicians being told not to enter data for adverse effects from the COVID vaccines. Hospitals have made it so only doctors can do it and they won’t or have been told not to do it by hospital administrators.

Healthy soccer (football) players in other countries have gotten the shot and are suddenly dying on the pitch or nearly dying.

You can’t “follow the science” when you cannot collect data or the data is being manipulated.


Has any NHL Hockey players dropped dead later ???


DoD incompetence or hiding data? Yes!

Follow the science…until we tell you NOT to follow the science.

Commie-tsar in


Embrace the power of and
Incompetent and hiding data.

I sure hope Airborne Son gets to medically retire soon. If the REMFs will ever get their adz in gear


So what changed in 2021 to make medical diagnoses suddenly start getting put in the system? Incentive pay? Hardly. DoD just steps on their crank again. Like a clown on fire, funny but sad.


Just wondering, how much did this incompetence of data management cost us taxpayers? And how much it will cost us to be bullshitted again (I mean fixed)?

Part of the 170 page package I have for tinnitus anthrax adverse reaction etc. is from VAERS, which also discussed suicide depression migraines and a host of other issues that we were all not supposed to have nor know about from the anthrax vaccines and of course they stopped for a couple years before they tweaked it and sent it back and by that time I was out but the damage is been done and I had documentation from the Internet that disappeared some years later but I still have a copy of it.
I’m calling bullshit on this meeting there’s no question that anybody is going to fuck with data to suit their purposes. There’s no way the government is going to let somebody free ball data and just leave it alone.


only someone unfamiliar with how data systems work could buy the DoD explanation here. the only way previous year data could be incomplete is if the DoD has been deleting data.

Now, that is certainly possible. But I favor a simple explanation–the DoD does indeed have the data for all years, but this data was thought to be “controlled” (i.e. locked).

In their sheer stupidity, they had a GS=9 with zero training or education do the work by watching youtube videos and learning on the job and that person opened data fields previously unavailable for retrieval.

Then a GS 15 who has as sole qualification being a retired LTC checked the work by putting on a beanie with a propeller on it and said, yup, looks good!

Then he created a ppt deck with 200 slides in it and got a pay raise.


Somebody is lying, probably everybody. Although I will point out that the Vax isn’t the only variable.

Younger military members that served in Iraq and Afghanistan with burning waste pits are aging and some of that might be catching up with them.

A positive COVID test puts women at an increased risk for miscarriage.


I haven’t the time to get into this discussion unfortunately, but for those who want a different perspective, here’s an article by an oncologist explaining why some of the increased numbers that purportedly show an effect of the scary vaccine don’t make sense:

In short, cancer numbers simply wouldn’t see an uptick that quickly, even if there were a causative effect. Cancers take time to develop.


Testicular cancer spiked among service members following Desert Storm. The official story is that the spike was caused by a lack of screening during the deployment. Sure, it could’ve happened like that. Problem is, I don’t recall ever having any screening prior to DS. In my case, it was found during a routine hernia exam. No abnormalities were noted during the re-deployment exam 9 months earlier.

Before my cancer, I didn’t really know anyone else who’d had to deal with it. Within a year, 2 friends had cancers -different kinds than mine, mind you- and both passed on not long after. I also started noticing news more about when someone famous would have it, or a flyer raising money for someone’s chemo, or something like that.

This conflict between the seemingly improbable way that everything happened at once, when viewed at that moment, and a more objective consideration of how that’s possible is something I still sometimes think about. I think that’s natural.

All of which is to say that while I want to say there’s no correlation between the COVID vaccines and these database entries (after all, we’d see it in other countries too, right?), I can understand your doubt, given your experiences.

And I’m glad you made it through that bout with cancer.


Surprise, LC, ol’ Poe actually agrees with Dr. Gorski that the data is simply not credible, even though he presents his rebuttal in a sneering, ad hominem manner not usually found in medical writing. He is particularly vitriolic towards Dr. Robert Malone, whom one would imagine knows a great deal more about vaccines than Dr. Gorski.

But, as Gorski correctly points out, any physician should have seen that cancer data as a red flag. It certainly looked improbable to me.

As I told Mason when I sent him the piece, either way, DoD is not going to come out of this looking good. Even though the actual report is the product of a civilian contractor, ultimately it is DoD’s imprimatur on the data released to the public.

While there are unusually high numbers of adverse events being reported with this vaccine, it is the longer term effects that many in the medical community are rightfully concerned with.

And for all of those issues raised, the VA will say none of them are service connected.
