Editor’s Commentary: As much as I love our premium news partners at The Epoch Times giving us the ability to report on world events without having to send reporters across the globe, there are times when I believe they bury the lede. This story is a perfect example. Yes, it’s absolutely shocking that over 1% of students developed heart conditions after receiving the Pfizer jabs, but I think it’s even more shocking that 17% of them reported cardiac symptoms shortly after getting jabbed.
On today’s episode of The JD Rucker Show, I discussed the shifting views that seem to be happening as more Americans wake up to the risks of the experimental injections. The video above is the short segment from the show in which I discuss the shocking Taiwan study itself.
Hundreds of young people who received Pfizer’s vaccine at their school reported cardiac symptoms and a significant percent had abnormal electrocardiogram results, researchers in Taiwan reported in a new study.
A second dose of Pfizer’s shot was administered to students aged 12 to 18 across four schools in Taipei in late 2021 and researchers ran electrocardiograms, or ECGs, before and after the second vaccination on the students—all of whom had already received a single dose.
Of the 4,928 students included in the study, 17 percent reported at least one cardiac symptom, such as chest pain, after vaccination.
Most of the ECGs conducted after vaccination returned normal but 51, or 1 percent, showed enough change from the pre-vaccine ECGs for pediatric cardiologists to designate the results as abnormal.
That included four students who had significant arrhythmia, or abnormal heartbeat, and one student who experienced myocarditis, or heart inflammation—a condition that can be caused by the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.
“After the second dose of BNT162b2 vaccine in a young population, cardiac-related symptoms were common. The incidences of subclinical myocarditis and significant arrhythmia were 0.1%,” the researchers, with the National Taiwan University Hospital and Medical College and other institutions, wrote.
Researchers also discovered that the heart rate in the students increased after vaccination and a decrease in other parameters, including the QT interval, or a measure of the heart’s electrical activity.
The study was published in the European Journal of Pediatrics. It was funded by the Cardiac Children Foundation.
Of the 51 students with abnormal findings, 33 sought medical help, including the boy diagnosed with myocarditis. Laboratory data for the boy was normal 10 days after vaccination. The others who had issued saw their conditions improve over time.
The 18 students who did not receive medical care showed no symptoms in a one-month follow-up visit, according to the researchers.
Pfizer did not respond to a request for comment.
“The fact that there’s potential arrhythmias and you got a bona fide case of myocarditis out of this, and four serious arrhythmias, that’s a pretty heavy price to pay for a vaccine that 99 percent-plus of these kids don’t even need,” Dr. Andrew Bostom, an American heart expert, told The Epoch Times.
The ECG screening was able to detect cardiac adverse events but limitations of the research included uncertainty as to whether ECG screening can identify all myocarditis cases.
Bostom in 2021 called for studies to examine the incidence of myocarditis and a related condition, pericarditis, after COVID-19 vaccination and a moratorium on the shots until such studies were completed.
He and Dr. Clare Path of the United Kingdom pointed to a prospective study done by U.S. government researchers after heart issues were detected following a smallpox vaccine. The government has not conducted similar research for heart issues following COVID-19 vaccination, though studies using health records have shown post-vaccination heart issues lingering for at least months.
Other studies have found that many post-vaccination cases of myocarditis were not resolved months later, and that myocarditis was the only possible cause of death for some people who died unexpectedly at home.
In a study conducted by U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) researchers, 54 percent of the 151 patients who had follow-up cardiac MRIs had abnormal results, including evidence of heart scarring.
In another paper, German researchers reported ruling out all possible causes of death but myocarditis for multiple people who died suddenly at home after vaccination.
A third paper from researchers studying Thailand students who received a Pfizer dose found that nearly 3 in 10 experienced heart effects, including palpitations and shortness of breath.
Researchers, who examined vital signs, echocardiography, and cardiac enzymes in addition to ECG results, recommended monitoring all adolescents who receive a Pfizer or Moderna shot for side effects.
Myocarditis is one of hundreds of safety signals the CDC discovered through crunching data from post-vaccination adverse event reports, according to results obtained by The Epoch Times. Most people who experience myocarditis after COVID-19 vaccination are hospitalized, according to CDC data.
Another Recent Study
The exact cause of myocarditis and other cardiac adverse events has not been pinpointed, but researchers in another recent paper said it likely stems from the spike protein in the vaccines.
Massachusetts researchers collected blood from 16 patients hospitalized with myocarditis after vaccination and detected elevated levels of spike protein in the patients, compared to no spike protein in asymptomatic, vaccinated control subjects.
While high levels of spike protein could be a consequence of myocarditis, it could also be the cause, researchers said.
The spike protein “may contribute to myocarditis,” they wrote.
Some studies have suggested that COVID-19 can also cause myocarditis, but many studies have estimated the incidence is higher after vaccination for key groups, particularly young males. A group of researchers, in a recent paper, estimated that a Pfizer or Moderna booster dose would lead to more cases of myocarditis than COVID-19 hospitalizations prevented.
The CDC and some other experts, including the Massachusetts researchers, say the benefits of the vaccines outweigh the risks; but other experts, including Florida’s surgeon general Dr. Joseph Ladapo and Dr. Peter McCullough, argue the risks outweigh the benefits, at least for young, healthy people.

Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of six sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:

- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
