Damar Hamlin is alive and speaking!
I couldn't be happier to report that Damar Hamlin is now able to speak. This is a stunning recovery for an amazing athlete.
Jan 6, 2023 7pm: I heard the news from multiple sources that Damar Hamlin has made a remarkable recovery and is now speaking. This is just fantastic news and I couldn’t be happier.
Jan 5, 2023 1:43pm: We’ve heard from his doctors and from the team. He’s able to squeeze people’s hands, understand, and write. Let’s hope he makes a full recovery. And I just want to point out that the only explanation for this proposed to date (commotio cordis) doesn’t make any sense. The only real options left are that he had a pre-existing underlying condition or he was vaccine injured. Just based on mathematical probabilities, the latter is much more likely.

Jan 4, 2023 11am: I just got a call from a reliable source that Damar Hamlin is alive and moving. This means he is not brain dead as many people in the medical community I spoke to suspected. I couldn’t be happier to report that Damar has beat the incredible odds and survived. I will update this article as I hear more later today.
Expert opinion from doctors is summarized here and in the comments and everyone needs to acknowledge that some very experienced doctors have the opinion in blue:
Here is the original article which describes the long odds and speculates how this may have occurred…
There is a lot of speculation on the Internet about whether or not Damar Hamlin will fully recover from his injury.
I am very sad to report that this is unlikely.
While I very much hope that I am wrong about this, the evidence that is known is not favorable.
The medical experts I consulted believe that there is a likelihood that Damar Hamlin was brain dead within 10 minutes after he dropped to the ground.
The primary reason for this conclusion is the 9 minutes of CPR. It is simply very rare for someone not to be brain dead at that point. Nobody I talked to has ever heard of such a case. That doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened. It just means it is rare.
I pray that this is not the case, but I think we need to prepare for that possibility.
For example, there was no news from the hospital that his brain was still alive. This would have been uplifting news to the crowd of people waiting outside the hospital, but it was never delivered. There were no reports anywhere that Hamlin’s brain was still functioning. Why would they withhold this information?
There was also no news so far today. That is ominous.
Is it immoral to talk about the possibility that the COVID vaccine may be involved?
Some would argue it is immoral and that I am a bad person for wanting to have a potential killer brought to justice. I don’t understand why people are angry with me for pointing out the evidence in plain sight and what it means. If you have anger, please direct it at the culprits, and not people who are trying to expose the culprits.
Others would argue it is the right thing to do.
However, if you believe it is immoral, please stop reading this article right now.
If Hamlin is brain dead, the possibility must be considered that the COVID vaccine played a role in his death. We cannot allow a potential killer to go free.
One medical expert I spoke with said there was a 99% chance this was due to the vaccine.
The reason for this opinion is that an injury of this nature (a relatively mild blow requiring 9 minutes of CPR and a failure of the defibrillator to revive him) is unprecedented if there wasn’t some underlying condition. If Hamlin had a known pre-existing condition, it would have surfaced by now.
Multiple sources confirm that Hamlin was vaccinated. For example, the team boasted of being 100% vaccinated. I also heard from an NFL coach that he was vaccinated. I’ve heard that there were only two players on the team who were known to be unvaccinated: Josh Allen and Cole Beasley.
There are some reports on Twitter that he was vaccinated just days before the event, but none of these reports have been authenticated and they were not considered in making the assessments in this article.
Could the vaccine have played a role in his death? If it did, here are two the most likely possibilities:
Possibility #1: Aortic aneurysm caused by the vaccine
Aortic aneurysm is a well-known side-effect associated with the COVID vaccine:
According to one medical expert (who is also vaccine injured), “a ton of vaccine injured have had aortic aneurysms.” Note that vaccine injuries in VAERS are underreported, so the 250 reports in VAERS may represent 25,000 incidents.
Some people observed Hamlin looked “pale and off” at the beginning of the game which would be consistent with that possibility.
An aortic rupture could then be triggered by a sudden impact.
The aorta carries blood away from the heart. A rupture here means blood would not be able to be pumped to his brain, even with CPR.
Defibrillation wouldn’t work either to restore blood flow to his brain. While they may be able to restart his heart, all that would do is create internal bleeding.
Possibility #2: Myocarditis caused by the COVID vaccine
The vaccine could have created heart damage (myocarditis) leading to an enlarged heart event. An adrenaline surge could lead to a myocardial infarction where his heart could not be restarted.
The experts I talked to also don’t think cc is is very likely. It never happens in football because there is never enough kinetic energy that can be delivered in the exact location: there is equipment that protects players and there is no 90 mph hockey puck or baseball in play.
If it was a simple v-fib, the defibrillator should have worked and they wouldn’t have done 9 minutes of CPR. Commotio cordis is also very rare and generally happens to younger people. Finally, Hamlin would NOT have been able to get up from his fall if it was due to cc. See this comment for more details.
Why the vaccine must be investigated as a possible cause
This chart says it all:
If there is a more accurate chart, please let me know.
This database is also very compelling. Check it out. Can you explain all of these incidents… and why are they happening only after April 2021?
For more information
What will the NFL do? Will they want to identify who was responsible for this tragedy?
One commenter speculated:
On the negative front: There is ZERO chance the NFL lets the family have an autopsy performed for possible link to vaccine. If it showed a link and that information became public, the league would probably shut down the rest of the year at least since every player would be considered a ticking time bomb. Players Association will go nuts. I'd say they pay off his family to prevent posthumous analysis if that's where this ends up.
I am thrilled to confirm that Damar Hamlin is alive and speaking.
However, it also important moving forward to fully understand what caused this tragic event and take the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future.
I hope that is something we can all agree on.
