( – More than 61,000 Millennials and record numbers of Gen-Xers died in 2021 alone, after the Covid vaccines hailed as miracles were rolled out, leaving an unprecedented wake of mortality in the last quarter of the year.  

The Millennial generation, aged about 25 to 40, experienced a staggering 84% increase in excess mortality in the fall of 2021, former Blackrock portfolio manager Edward Dowd told Breitbart’s Steve Bannon in an episode of his War Room in March. Dowd described it as the “worst-ever excess mortality, I think, in history.” 

These deaths, which amounted to more than the number of deaths from the entire Vietnam War compressed into a single year, occurred in tandem with spikes in vaccine and booster shots that were mandated in August 2021. 


Dowd said the numbers, drawn from data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for analysis, also showed that Gen-Xers, (those aged about 40-55) fared no better, leading to what he called a “democide,” or government-sponsored murder of huge swathes of the population. 

Most ‘pandemic’ deaths in 2021 

The peak of deaths during the past two years of emergency pandemic health policies occurred in January 2021, and nearly doubled the scale of the supposedly serious “first wave” peak of deaths during April 2020, confirms a recently released working paper from a Johns Hopkins University professor of Applied Economics. Professor Genevieve Briand’s study looks at U.S. monthly data on deaths from 1999 to 2021. 

A second unexpected wave of deaths occurred primarily in younger adults in September 2021 in tandem with the imposition of forced vaccination via mandates by employers and institutions across the United States. 

“The fact that the April 2020 peak is lower than the January 2021 one, by a larger magnitude than the January 2018 peak is compared to it, and the fact that the September 2021 peak is nearly as high as the April 2020 peak, give further ground that the so feared April 2020 peak was not as alarming as led to believe,” states Briand. 

Her paper points to deaths from respiratory diseases not including COVID-19 which plummeted in the pandemic for those 85 and up to a low unmatched at any time since 2009. In fact, respiratory deaths from influenza and pneumonia in the most vulnerable elderly groups were thousands lower at the peak of the April 2020 “first wave” than at the peak of influenza deaths in years past, including  2018, 2015, and 2013. 

As a percentage of deaths, respiratory diseases which have hovered between 8.8% and 9.3% of all deaths since 1999, fell to just 7.4% of deaths in 2020 and 6.6% in 2021.  

Briand noted that “COVID-19 deaths numbers were overstated” and “all these deaths would have found a home in other cause of death categories” if a special new diagnostic COVID-19 category had not been created.  Nowhere is the “re-categorization” of deaths more obvious than with the disappearing respiratory diseases death numbers. 

Deaths from other causes fell 

Deaths from three other leading causes of death – heart disease, cancer, and cerebrovascular disorders vanished as well, with each group experiencing unprecedented lows during the pandemic, suggesting that, again, labelling of cause of death is what changed, rather than that thousands of circulatory disease and cancer victims simply did not die.  


For heart disease, the data picture for the frail elderly looked as though the usual peaks of mortality were lopped off in 2020 and 2021; it was “as if the mountains’ tips were cut off” writes Briand. Again, this unparalleled statistical oddity suggests that people didn’t stop dying of heart disease in record numbers, but that their deaths were designated under the new diagnostic label of COVID-19. 

While adults died in unprecedented numbers in January 2021, these deaths dominated in the elderly, and in tandem with, or soon after, the rollout of vaccines, primarily to the elderly and healthcare workers, began in December 2020. 

Meanwhile, younger adults died in record numbers, which peaked in September 2021 for those 45-54, 35-44, and 25-34 years old. September 2021 deaths for those 65-74 and 55-64 years old were also higher than in April 2020, when before COVID, September spikes in deaths in the young were “unheard of,” according to Briand.   

Excess deaths from vaccines 

Those death spikes correspond with vaccine mandates pushed by Joe Biden’s administration and enforced by employers, hospitals, and other institutions. In September as well, deaths data from the CDC shows that those in the 65-74 years old range died in greater numbers than those 75 years and older, and those in the 45-54 age range died from COVID-19 at rates as high as those 85 and older.  

“This has never happened before for deaths due to respiratory diseases, from 1999 to 2019,” Briand said and is “consistent with the vaccine deaths hypothesis.” 

More data, especially from groups such as members of the Armed Forces who were forced to vaccinate, would confirm the evidence. Hospital data would tell a big part of the story, too, Briand believes. “If these vaccines can lead to death, then they can certainly lead to conditions requiring hospitalization,” she said.  

“This hypothesis could thus also be further tested by looking at hospitalization data related to such documented conditions.”
