What Do Jupiter the Tiger and Nick Nemeroff Have in Common?
They both died this week, but that's not all
Comedian Nick Nemeroff has died suddenly. According to CBC News in Canada, his manager said that he didn’t know the exact cause of his death, but that Nemeroff “died in his sleep.” He was 32 years old.
His family wrote a heartbreaking post on Instagram:
It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved brother Nick Nemeroff. Nick’s dedication to standup comedy was formidable, and produced amazing results. He drew acclaim in Canada and the US, becoming both a ‘comic’s comic’ and a hit with crowds who were enamoured by his unique cadence, labyrinthine deadpan, and fresh take on misdirection-driven comedy. If Nick was on a comedy show, he was guaranteed to leave with new fans. And he deserved to, because comedy was, in many ways, his life. Endlessly sweet, supportive of others, humble about his many skills and achievements, Nick lived his life doing what he loved, and that is how he will be remembered. RIP Nick. We love you.
Jupiter Also Died
Jupiter, a Siberian tiger at the Columbus Zoo in Ohio also died this week, as reported by CBS News. He was 14 years old.
Jupiter’s death, too, was shocking and untimely. Siberian, or Amur, tigers are expected to live 20 to 25 years in captivity. Though they are believed to live only 14 or 15 years in the wild, the oldest Amur tigers have lived to be 35 years old in zoos, according to the Wildlife Conservation Society.
According to the zoo, Jupiter died of pneumonia, a complication of COVID-19. He had chronic and underlying conditions that made him more susceptible to severe illness.
OK, So I Got The Vaccine
As Nemeroff playfully tweeted back in February, 2021:
“Ok so I got the vaccine and it did have a side effect...the area the needle went into (if I had to describe it I’d say like, on the top part of my upper arm. If that makes sense?) hurt a bit after. Seems ok now but honestly do NOT recommend getting it & wish I could take it back.”
Though he joked after getting the first Pfizer vaccine, it seems that the second shot didn’t go so well for him. Six months after getting them, on August 22, 2021, Nemeroff made a 23-second video in which he’s lying down, looking unhappy and unwell.
For once the comedian is dead serious. Above the video he posted: “POV I am an anti vaxxer but only for the booster shot.”
“I will not get the third shot,” Nemeroff said in the video, which has had 110,900 views so far. “I will not. Pfizer me once, no shame,” he continued. “Pfizer me twice, shame on COVID. Pfizer me three times, shame on you.”
The anger in his voice is palpable as he asks rhetorically: “You want me to get a third shot, what’s next? A fifth shot? No thank you.”
(If someone knows how to download this video in case Twitter censors it, can you please do so and also let us know how in the comment section below?)
Now Nemeroff is dead. At the height of a successful career. Age 32.
Wait, What? Am I suggesting, as so many others already have, that the two vaccines this young man got over a year ago might be responsible for his sudden death? How could that be?
I’ve been co-authoring health articles with Dr. Joe Wang, Ph.D., a molecular geneticist and former vaccine developer. Wang was part of a team of brilliant scientists who tried to develop a vaccine against SARS back in 2003. In fact, he was a lead scientist working with Sanofi Pasteur.
As Wang can attest to firsthand, despite tireless and careful vaccine development research that lasted decades, the best and brightest international scientists were unable to create a safe, effective vaccine against SARS. Once the virus became endemic, the scientists stopped trying.
mRNA Technology Teaches Our Cells to Make a Dangerous Protein
Of course, two of the three Operation Warp Speed vaccines used in the United States are based on new and what at first seemed to be very exciting and innovative technology. Messenger RNA vaccines (mRNA) work by “teaching” our cells to make a protein that then triggers an immune response. So the vaccines alter the machinery inside our cells to produce the spike protein. Then your immune system recognizes that the spike proteins are foreign and must be cleared, just as it does when you’re infected with a wild COVID virus.
Unfortunately, this mRNA technology, while hailed as miraculous, has proved to be anything but. As we are finding out in real time, while the CDC claims the self-produced spike protein is “harmless,” encouraging the body to produce its own spike protein can literally be a death sentence.
A team of research scientists, including MIT senior scientist Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., and one of the most experienced and well-published cardiologists in the world, Dr. Peter McCullough, M.D., believe they know why.
In a paper published this month, June 2022, in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, they explain that vaccination interferes with interferon signaling.
Interferon is a natural substance that helps the body's immune system fight infection and other diseases, such as cancer. Interferons block viral replication on many levels, according to a 2002 article published in Nature Reviews Immunology.
Disrupting the body’s immune response via mRNA vaccines, these scientists found, is highly problematic.
“[T]he immune response to the vaccine is very different from that to a SARS-CoV-2 infection,” they write. “In this paper, we present evidence that vaccination induces a profound impairment in type I interferon signaling, which has diverse adverse consequences to human health. Immune cells that have taken up the vaccine nanoparticles release into circulation large numbers of exosomes containing spike protein along with critical microRNAs that induce a signaling response in recipient cells at distant sites. We also identify potential profound disturbances in regulatory control of protein synthesis and cancer surveillance. These disturbances potentially have a causal link to neurodegenerative disease, myocarditis, immune thrombocytopenia, Bell's palsy, liver disease, impaired adaptive immunity, impaired DNA damage response and tumorigenesis.”
As they explain further in the paper: “… these unprecedented vaccines exhibit unusual mechanisms of toxicity that go well beyond what is seen with more traditional vaccines.”
The spike protein, whether from a wild COVID-19 infection itself or from an mRNA vaccination, induces an inflammatory response in the heart.
Myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart muscle, as you probably know by now, can be lethal.
Myocarditis-Induced Sudden Death: Could This Have Happened to Nemeroff?
Myocarditis-induced sudden deaths from the vaccines have been reported in the peer-reviewed literature, including in the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of Korean Medical Science, and Nature, as Wang and I wrote about recently for The Epoch Times.
(Our article is behind a paywall. But if you email me, I can send you a copy from the website so you can read it for free without subscribing.)
“[S]everal comprehensive studies demonstrate that myocarditis is a major cause of sudden, unexpected deaths in adults less than 40 years of age, and assess that it is responsible for 12–20% of these deaths,” explain an international team of scientists in the Nature article, citing no fewer than four other peer-reviewed sources.
Dr. Kirk Milhoan, M.D., is a pediatric cardiologist with a Ph.D. in cardiovascular physiology. He wrote his dissertation on cardiovascular inflammation. When I spoke to him earlier this month, he sounded frustrated and concerned. He told me he and his colleagues are seeing post-vaccination pediatric myocarditis at unprecedented rates and that the scars on these young people’s hearts, as seen on cardiac MRIs, are extremely worrisome.
However, if you don’t present with chest pains or irregular heartbeat in the hours or days after you’ve had a COVID-19 vaccine, you won’t know that your heart has been damaged or scarred.
But these scars, Milhoan said, may well be responsible for sudden deaths in months or even years after the initial cardiac injury.
“They could die suddenly from them,” he told me.
Though Milhoan himself has always been a proponent of vaccines (and has himself had vaccines against anthrax and smallpox), he believes the COVID-19 vaccines have no benefit for young people.
“I am a scientist and a physician,” Milhoan told me. “I have seen the benefit that vaccines have had for children. This one has no benefit and all risk. It’s basic medicine. Basic do no harm.”
Dr. Sarah Long, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics at Drexel University College of Medicine and Chief of the Section of Infectious Diseases at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, who serves on the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, has also publicly voiced concerns with vaccine efficacy.
“With the vaccines currently available, we should not chase the rainbows of hoping that those vaccines could prevent infection, transmission and even mild disease because we’ve learned that is just not possible,” Long said in April. “We just need to give that up with these vaccines and focus on preventing severe disease and preventing death.”
More recently, as quoted by the Epoch Times, Long said: “I just think we should assume we don’t have efficacy data” because of the small number of cases, in reference to how effective the vaccine is for young children.
Despite her criticism of the current vaccines, however, Long voted in favor of approving them even for six month old babies. Whatever their private misgivings, the entire ACIP committee voted unanimously to recommend the vaccines for babies and toddlers.
Milhoan finds this unconscionable. He said that he has medical colleagues calling him every month to ask him to help them with their vaccine-injured pediatric patients. But when he, in turn, asks his colleagues to speak up about what they are seeing, they refuse.
“Five physicians have said, ‘I agree with you, but I’m not going to say a word,’” he told me. Then he paused for a long moment. “The cowardice I’m seeing here, it’s unbelievable.”
Columbus Zoo Proudly Vaccinates Their Tigers
In early November of 2021, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium announced that it had already vaccinated more than 100 animals against COVID-19, including tigers, lions, gorillas, and giraffes.
A photo of one of the Amur tigers getting vaccinated accompanied a November 8th news story on Axios about the zoo’s “successful” vaccination campaign.
Jupiter the tiger was battling several chronic conditions. Leaving aside the question of how a Siberian tiger gets chronically ill in the first place, the mainstream media is reporting that this is why he succumbed to COVID-19. The mainstream media, of course, is not saying anything about the potential causal link between the vaccine and Jupiter’s death.
My dear friend and neighbor was also living with several chronic diseases, including diabetes, as she’d been for the 15 plus years that I knew her.
After the first Pfizer vaccine her health started declining with breathtaking rapidity. Her heart was bothering her, her kidneys began failing, and when she looked in the mirror she felt she aged so much that she saw her mother’s eyes staring back at her, not her own.
The doctors didn’t really know why. What they knew without a shadow of a doubt, however, was that it had nothing to do with the Pfizer vaccine she’d just had. She was scheduled to get the second shot three weeks later. Her ex-husband planned to drive her to the appointment. She never did get it, though. She died.
RIP Jupiter, Nick, and Tangren. I hope we end this madness soon.

You’re Not Imagining Things: There HAS Been a Spate of Sudden Deaths Among Healthy Adults
When I saw the animals at the zoos getting whacked, I knew it was a colossal joke. This poor, beautiful animal.
I want to cry. The timespan to death is deeply troubling. Is every vaccinated person at risk no matter how long it’s been?
