(Editor's note: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that the video of the collapse of basketball player Keyontae Johnson was in the film. In fact, that scene was found in the film's trailer, not the full film. We regret the error and have corrected it here.)
The film is getting millions of views across media platforms, including Rumble, Brighteon, Bitchute and others, while the mainstream media is going all-out to try to ban the film or attack its key message. Stew Peters is to be congratulated for having the courage to document this alarming phenomenon and put money behind a film effort to sound the alarm to a wider audience.
Although the usual suspects among left-wing media are hurling bad faith attacks at Stew Peters and the filmmakers, Steve Kirsch, who is prominently featured in the film, has published a defense of the film here: Answering the critics of "Died Suddenly."
Not everyone is thrilled with the documentary, however. The Covid Blog publisher Brian Wilkins -- a meticulous analyst and researcher who has no specific political axe to grind -- has published a critical review here, in which he gives the film 10/10 in its section on the clots, but says the film falls flat in becoming far too politicized and polarizing to ever gain much traction among those who don't already know that these vaccines are killing people. He says the film fails to point out that plenty of conservatives -- including Trump, Sean Hannity, Ben Shapiro, etc. -- all pushed the vaccines, too:
Too partisan and too much Steve Kirsch. There’s good information about the monopolized mainstream media and its coordinated propaganda. I saw Joe Biden, George Soros, Rachel Maddow, Stephen Colbert (I think – I get all those guys mixed up), etc. as the villains. These people definitely push and promote the lethal injections. But so do Donald Trump, Sean Hannity, Mitch McConnell, Ben Shapiro before his mea culpa four weeks ago, etc.
This is a non-partisan, human, life-and-death issue. TPTB are right, left, up, down, turn around, touch the ground, whatever. Presenting only the left-wing/Democrat culprits and not their right-wing/GOP counterparts was a missed opportunity. It also places the film in the tribal politics category.
Giving credit to Stew Peters, the film has packaged the vaccine damage issue in a ready-to-eat format that makes it easy for individuals who are new to the topic to finally "get it." For those who haven't been paying attention, in other words, this film gives them a summary of the nearly year-long work of Dr. Jane Ruby who first "discovered" embalmer Richard Hirschman and brought this issue to light. (See more about Dr. Jane Ruby below, where I ask why she's missing from the film.)
The film has so far received millions of views, so it's a sure bet that lots of people are seeing it who weren't previously aware of the fibrous clot issue that people like Dr. Jane Ruby and myself have been reporting on for the last year. If this means that some number of lives will be saved by people learning the truth, then the film has done its job and the filmmakers are to be commended for their efforts.
Critics of the film are correctly pointing out that in the rush to release it, some footage was used that appears to depict adults or babies who are vaccine injured but, as it turns out, were injured in ways not at all related to vaccines. One scene found in the film's trailer depicts former University of Florida basketball player Keyontae Johnson collapsing during a Florida State University game. The problem is that this collapse took place on December 12, 2020, well before the vaccine was available in the United States, according to ESPN. (h/t to Wilkins for the link) (Note: This paragraph was updated to reflect the fact that the Johnson collapse scene was found in the trailer, not the full film. We have corrected it here. We regret the error.)
There are other factual errors in the film that are of course being widely circulated by the pro-vax media in an effort to discredit the film. I'm not going to list them here, because I think the pharma-funded media would use anything they could to attack the film and try to get people to ignore the more important message which is that people who get these mRNA injections begin to grow fibrous clots in their vascular systems, and this ends up killing many of them. No one in mainstream media will discuss this point, even though that's the thrust of the film.
But Stew Peters' filmmakers certainly did make it easier for the pro-vax media to discredit the film, because there are several notable errors throughout, and all it takes for a vaccine zealot to discredit the entire film is to find a single error and point to that.
Honestly, I think that if Dr. Jane Ruby had been involved with the film, she could have vetted this and likely caught these errors and saved Stew Peters and the filmmakers from the embarrassment and criticism that's now being waged by those citing the errors.
For the record, I'm not saying I'm 100% correct on everything, either. I've made errors in reporting. If the errors are factual errors, I always work to correct them once aware of them. But I've produced films like Biosludged (www.Biosludged.com), and although the guests featured in the film have their own opinions and viewpoints, we were careful to make sure that all the accompanying B-roll footage was not misleading or misappropriated. Nobody has claimed the footage we used in the film wasn't presented in an accurate context about biosludge.
Nevertheless, in Stew Peters' defense, the covid vaccines are killing people by the thousands each day, so I understand the rush to release this movie and help save lives. There is clearly an urgency to get this out and try to get people to stop committing vaccine-assisted suicide. It's just that rushing the film -- and yes, I think it was clearly rushed without adequate fact checking of the video clips used -- hands ammunition to the vaccine pushers who will use the errors to discredit the entire film, thereby causing fewer people to see it. Thus, while rushing the film may have been intended to save lives, failing to fact check all the video clips is causing the film to reach far fewer people than it should have, which means more people are ultimately dying from the vaccines. So it's a very difficult situation to navigate.
Also, in Stew Peters' defense, I want to add that it's easy for people who have never made films to criticize films they view, but it's a whole different thing to actually make films. Now, I've made films, so I know how complex this is, so I think I have the right to offer qualified criticism where called for. But for a whole lot of people who have never made films, never joined the discussion, never done a podcast, never put their face in front of a camera and called out the liars, it's a bit disingenuous to point the finger at Stew and say, "Hey YOU screwed up! Why don't you do better?"
My immediate answer to those people is along the lines of, "Why don't YOU make your own film if you think you can do better?" After all, everybody is free to post on Brighteon, Bitchute, Rumble, Gab and other platforms. So to those who are complaining about "Died Suddenly" but never made their own films, why don't you first try to make your own documentary and see what it takes. After that, you can complain, if you have any time or money left. (Because documentaries are sink holes of time and money, and they almost always lose money...)
If you are looking for a way to vaporize hundreds of thousands of dollars while making yourself a magnet for intense criticism, make a documentary!
That said, I do have one key criticism of this entire project. And it's not about what's in the film; it's about what's missing from it.
Namely, that's Dr. Jane Ruby.
Dr. Jane Ruby broke the "fibrous clots" story from the very beginning. She's the one who first "discovered" embalmer Richard Hirschman. She did the initial due diligence, conducted the phone calls, and reached out to people like myself to get lab tests done on the clots so that she could try to confirm what they were made of. (For the record, we still don't know for sure what they're made of, but we are able to eliminate some guesses on what they're not, which is helpful.)
Dr. Jane Ruby first broke this story about the fibrous clots on January 31 of 2022, in this Rumble video entitled, "Worldwide Exclusive: Embalmers Find Veins & Arteries Filled with Never Before Seen Rubbery Clots."
Here's an embed of the same video on Brighteon, from a third party channel:
From that first breaking news exclusive, Dr. Jane Ruby went on to conduct dozens of interviews and investigation pieces into the fibrous clots story. You can see many of those videos on her channel on Rumble. Or just search Brighteon.com for "Jane Ruby clots" and you'll see plenty of videos.
During the first half of 2022, Dr. Ruby was reaching out to me privately, asking if I could volunteer our laboratory expertise to examine these clots. I agreed, and she arranged for Richard Hirschman to send clot specimens to my lab. I currently have a fascinating collection of these fibrous clots in my laboratory, where we are still conducting microscopy work (many new photos coming soon) and ICP-MS mass spec analysis.
On June 13th, I invited Dr. Jane Ruby and Richard Hirschman to the Alex Jones Show, where I had been invited to host the show. We made radio history that day by conducting the very first live, on-air microscopy examination of the fibrous clots that had been provided by Hirschman. I brought a $100,000 laboratory microscope to the InfoWars studios in Austin and we did the whole thing live, with Harrison Smith sitting next to me trying not to barf up his breakfast as we manipulated grotesque clot structures with tweezers under the microscope, amplified on the large monitors in the studio.
You can watch that groundbreaking episode on Banned.video at this link. The title of that episode is, "Scientists Confirm COVID Vaccines Contain Nanostructures Colonizing In The Human Body."
In fact, most of the fibrous clot microscopy photos circulating around the 'net today are photos that I personally took and published either on NaturalNews.com or aired on the Alex Jones Show as exclusive content.
I published my breaking news photos on June 12, 2022, in an article titled, "EXCLUSIVE: Shocking microscopy photos of blood clots extracted from those who “suddenly died” – crystalline structures, nanowires, chalky particles and fibrous structures."
Here's one of the photos that you may recognize:
The point is, Dr. Jane Ruby was so instrumental in the breaking of this story that to leave her out of the documentary film is truly astonishing. It would be like doing a documentary on venom peptide theory without mentioning Dr. Bryan Ardis. This story simply wouldn't exist -- at least not in 2022 -- without Jane Ruby.
What makes this even more strange to me is the fact that Dr. Jane Ruby works for Stew Peters. She's on the Stew Peters network, after all, and so it is impossible that Stew wasn't aware of Jane's work in this area. For whatever reason, Stew Peters made a decision to make this documentary without the one woman upon whose work the entire subject matter was based. I find that incredibly odd.
I texted Stew about all this, of course, because I wanted to know why she was left out. I won't share the content of those texts because it was a private conversation, but the upshot is that Stew did reply, which I appreciate, but he didn't offer any explanation or answer about why she wasn't included in the film.
So Dr. Jane Ruby does all the research, finds Hirschman, vets him, gets the clots, gets the lab work done, publicizes the issue, does dozens of interviews and essentially breaks this whole story to the world... and then she's somehow not included in "Died Suddenly?" But the thumbnail of Died Suddenly says, "Stew Peters presents." So Stew Peters is the name associated with the film and given credit for the film, while Jane Ruby isn't even mentioned.
Instead, Steve Kirsch is prominently featured in the film. Nothing against Kirsch in this role, and it's great that he's in the film because he has done a tremendous amount of good work publicizing all this, but Steve Kirsch didn't break this story. Jane Ruby did. And she appears nowhere in the film, even though the film is produced by the same people who have Jane Ruby on their payroll.
Please chime in with comments, because I hope I'm not the only person who finds this curious.
When it comes to medicine, science, journalism and the like, it is essential we give credit to those whose work we stand upon. In my own work at Natural News, when we post an article written by someone else, we credit them twice -- once at the top and once at the bottom of each article. This is why Brian Wilkins (TheCovidBlog) describes us as an honest shop. We don't plagiarize content, and we give credit where credit is due. In my podcasts, I also credit every publisher when I'm reading their headlines, whether it's Newspunch.com, SHTFplan.com, The Epoch Times or whoever initiated the story in the first place. I'm a stickler for giving credit to others, even though my own work is constantly ripped off and plagiarized by others. (There are people on YouTube who simply 'perform" my articles audibly, and post those videos for profit while giving me zero mention or credit. Yes, that's how insane the plagiarism is in this industry...)
If anybody deserves credit on the fibrous clots story, it's Dr. Jane Ruby. Half the reason I'm writing this article is to make sure she gets proper credit across the health freedom industry, because people need to know that she's the one who deserves the most credit for this story. Without Jane, there's no story and there's no documentary. Across alt media outlets, I see all sorts of credit being given to "Stew Peters" for this film. I see his name on the film trailer, the thumbnail, the shout-outs, but I don't see Stew giving any credit to Jane Ruby.
In my experience, if you expect to work with people, you've got to give them credit where credit is due. I run a network over well over 50+ hosts on Brighteon.TV and BrighteonRadio.com. To help promote them, I invite them on as guests and interview them and promote their channels, their names, their books and their projects. I conduct 200+ interviews a year, and in every single case, I promote their websites, channels, books, etc. You can see hundreds of such interviews at my channel page on Brighteon, if you want to fact check this:
If you want to be successful in this industry, you promote the people around you, you don't ghost them. And until Dr. Jane Ruby is acknowledged for her role in all this, any documentary on this subject is incomplete.
Dr. Ruby deserves recognition. I'm going to publicly call out Stew Peters on this, in a polite way, reminding us all that the film is powerful, and he deserves a lot of credit for the project. But so does Jane Ruby, and she's getting ghosted. My question to Stew and the filmmakers is would you consider updating the film, or releasing a new chapter, that recognizes Jane Ruby's role in all this? I would be very supportive of that effort, and I think the greater community would be as well. I'll ask Steve Kirsch for his thoughts on this as well, but I imagine he would be supportive.
What do you think? Sound off in the comments, if you wish. Both Stew Peters and Jane Ruby are on Telegram, by the way, so you can ping them there if you support this idea. Please be polite in all cases. This is an honest discussion and I want the best for both Stew Peters and Jane Ruby. I want the best for all humanity, come to think of it, which is why we are all sounding the alarm on all this in the first place.
