A military whistleblower is going public to warn the American people about a huge spike in cases of heart failure among vaxxed service members.
The brave whistleblower has chosen to shun anonymity and identified himself as active-duty Navy Medical Service Corps officer Lt. Ted Macie.
Earlier this year, Macie anonymously disclosed data from a Pentagon medical database showing a spike in the rate of myocarditis in the military in 2021.
Myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle or myocardium.
This inflammation weakens your heart muscle, making it harder for your heart to pump.
Severe myocarditis weakens the heart so that the rest of the body doesn’t get enough blood, according to Mayo Clinic.
Clots can form in the heart, leading to a stroke, heart attack, or cardiac arrest, often ending in death.
Myocarditis is a known side effect of Covid mRNA shots.
According to Macie, cases of myocarditis skyrocketed after the military mandated COVID-19 vaccines for service members.
U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin mandated the vaccines in 2021, a requirement that remained in place until Congress forced its withdrawal in late 2022.
Now Macie is going public to raise the alarm among his fellow citizens.
He has also released new data showing a substantial rise in accidents, assaults, self-harm, and suicide attempts in the military in 2021.
The data shows a significant spike compared to the average from 2016 to 2021.
This includes a 147 percent increase in intentional self-harm incidents among service members.
There is also a massive 828 percent increase in injuries from assaults.
Lt. Macie revealed that he started “keeping an eye on” a defense medical database when another whistleblower alerted him to soaring health-related incidents in the winter of 2021/2022.
The Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) is a depository of all diagnoses.
The data is recorded using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes.
The database is accessed when an active service member is seen on- or off-base by a military or civilian provider.
It does not include any personally identifiable information of service members.
In January, Macie and his wife took a report of the data he collected from DMED and traveled to Washington D.C. to blow the whistle.
The report shows that diagnoses of myocarditis jumped 130.5 percent in 2021 when compared to the average from the years 2016 to 2020.
The data also showed spikes in diagnoses of pulmonary embolism (41.2 percent), blood clots in the lungs, ovarian dysfunction (38.2 percent), and “complications and ill-defined descriptions of heart disease” (37.7 percent).
Macie downloaded the data almost a year after the Pentagon said it fixed a data corruption issue with the DMED, according to the Epoch Times.
In 2022, other military whistleblowers reported shocking spikes in disease rates after the introduction of the COVID-19 vaccine.
However, the Pentagon responded by arguing that those figures were not correct because some diagnoses in the years 2016 to 2020 had not been counted.
The Defense Department claims diagnoses were not recorded due to an issue stemming from “corrupt” data.
After the Pentagon said the issue was corrected, Lt. Macie and others—including First Lt. Mark Bashaw, a preventive medicine officer in the Army, Navy Lt. Billy Mosley, Army Surgeon Lt. Col. Theresa Long, and Army doctor Maj. Samuel Sigoloff—noticed that there were still concerning signs of increases in diagnoses, such as myocarditis and pulmonary embolism.
Macie said that word had started to spread that he was the only active-duty member at his command who didn’t receive the COVID-19 vaccine and was actively suing the secretary of defense.
As word got around, Macie said people began to come to him in confidence telling him about adverse reactions, which they were convinced were “from the shot.”
“These anecdotal, but compelling personal injuries, were a motivator to get things on the right track.”
After verifying Lt. Macie’s report with the Senate Subcommittee on Investigations, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), the top Republican on that panel, sent a letter to Austin in March asking the Pentagon to confirm Macie’s data.
Macie had suspected the Pentagon would not respond, based on his experience of previous requests made within the department going unfulfilled.
“In the event our suspicions were correct, I kept additional data to reveal as soon as the data we brought [to Washington] was confirmed, or after being ignored for some time,” he said.
“Much to my surprise,” said Macie, the Pentagon, in a July reply to Sen. Johnson’s letter, confirmed that his data was accurate.
In the Pentagon’s response, Gilbert Cisneros Jr., undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, pointed to data on the rate of cases per 100,000 person-years, a way to measure risk across a certain period of time.
For almost all the conditions that showed an increase in cases in 2021, he stated, the new case rate was higher for service members with a prior COVID-19 infection than for those with a prior COVID-19 vaccination.
“This suggests that it was more likely to be [COVID-19] infection and not COVID-19 vaccination that was the cause,” Cisneros stated.
Macie said he plans to bring the additional data he kept “up my chain of command with the aim of a resolution and validation for injured service members, but I’m not holding my breath.”
He has also brought this new data to the office of Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), hoping to get the attention of the House Armed Services Committee, a panel the Republican congressman sits on.
Gaetz’s office acknowledged in June that “they will take a look,” Macie said.
According to his research, health-related incidents in 2021 rose substantially above the five-year average from 2016 to 2020.
“As some may expect, internal injuries like myocarditis (130 percent), tinnitus (42 percent), and cerebral infarction (stroke) (43.5 percent) are on the rise,” he said.
But it was Macie’s wife who became curious, asking about other types of injuries.
“What about external cause morbidities, like burns, accidents, self-inflicted harm, and injuries that are not expected to be associated with the COVID shot?” he said.
With the new data he discovered, the following incidents exhibited increases in 2021 above the five-year average: exposure to forces of nature (773 percent), water transport accidents (7,400 percent), land transport vehicle (526 percent), suicide attempts (33 percent), assault (828 percent), slipping, tripping, stumble and falls (471 percent), and intentional self-harm (147 percent).
Some of these not only increased in 2021 but continued to rise in 2022.
“Historically, if the Pentagon noticed a trend in certain areas like abuse and suicide, the department would hold a safety stand-down—a military-wide mandatory training and review where all commands require one hundred percent participation,” Macie explains
“What will higher-ranking general officers, the Surgeon General, Defense Health Agency, and Joint Chiefs do when they receive word that ICD codes/injuries for these incidents are on the rise?” said Macie.
“Soon, we’ll see if the same people who claim that the service member is their top priority actually show that through their action,” he added.
According to Macie, there are a few possibilities concerning the new data collected:
“If the data is correct, and is confirmed by [the Pentagon], more than just a stand-down needs to happen. Rising problems like self-harm, suicide attempts, accidents, and assault must be addressed immediately, not just the mess of [vaccine] injuries.”
He notes that the Pentagon may, for a second time, reply saying the data is incorrect, even though the department previously said they’ve resolved the data corruption issues in the system to prevent future errors.
But such a reply would raise even more questions going to the integrity of the database and whether there is a cover-up at play, he warns.
Lt. Macie hopes that Congress will press the Pentagon for answers concerning this new data.
But if lawmakers fail to do this, “the people need to step up to hold our government accountable.”
