Rev. Drene Keyes, of Virginia, was anxious about receiving her first dose of the still experimental Pfizer mRNA Covid-19 vaccine. So anxious that she asked a co-worker to go with her to the vaccination site.

The 58-year-old, “gifted grandmother of six” was in the high-risk category for Covid-19 with multiple preexisting conditions including diabetes, morbid obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and sleep apnea.

Keyes’ daughter, Lisa Jones, told WKTR her mom’s job “made her eligible for the vaccine.”

Keyes believed the vaccine would lessen her symptoms if she contracted the coronavirus.

Before she left home, Jones helped her put on her shoes.

“She was such a loving and generous person,” Jones said.

A co-worker accompanied Keyes to a medical facility in Warsaw, where she got the injection on Saturday. Keyes waited the mandatory 15-minute observation period before heading to her car in the parking lot.

Her co-worker said she was getting into her car when she suddenly said, “Something is not right. Something’s not right.”

Keyes had difficulty breathing and began vomiting. She was rushed to VCU Tappahannock Hospital, where doctors administered Epipen (epinephrine for anaphylaxis), CPR and oxygen.

“They tried to remove fluid from her lungs. They called it ‘flash pulmonary edema,’ and doctors told me that it can be caused by anaphylaxis,” said Jones (pictured right). “The doctor told me that often during anaphylaxis, chemicals are released inside of a person’s body and can cause this to happen.”

Anaphylaxis is a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction that can occur within seconds or minutes after exposure to a substance the person is allergic to.

People who suffer an anaphylactic reaction should receive an epinephrine injection immediately to counteract the allergen.

Signs and symptoms of an anaphylactic reaction include itchy rash, swelling of the tongue and throat, difficulty swallowing, difficulty inhaling, shortness of breath and light headedness.

The onset of symptoms can occur within seconds or minutes.

Health officials previously cautioned people not to take the mRNA vaccine if they had a severe allergic reaction in the past.

The risks — including death — were spelled out in the documents that Keyes signed before she got the vaccine.

Still, Jones is demanding answers. She believes more testing should have been done before the vaccines were rushed to market for a virus with a 99.4% survival rate.

“Why are we allowing people with underlying conditions to be guinea pigs for a vaccine that is still in clinical trials and emergency use?” Jones questioned.

Jones told WTVR she hopes her mother’s death serves as a warning to doctors and health professionals to pre-screen patients prior to administering the vaccine.

“My mom was wanting to protect herself, and it did not turn out that way,” Jones told WBRZ.

Health officials insist Keyes did not die from anaphylaxis or a reaction to the vaccine — despite ER doctors treating her for anaphylaxis.

The CDC is also investigating the deaths of a 56-year-old Florida doctor about two weeks after getting his first Pfizer vaccine, and a 60-year-old California healthcare worker who died four days after his second injection with the Pfizer vaccine.

“Drene Keyes believed mainstream media, government health officials, her doctors and Big Pharma that Pfizer’s vaccine was safe and it would protect her,” said Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

“Her faith and trust in those people and institutions may have cost her her life.”



Twitter Reacts To DaniLeigh Alleged Pregnancy





Congrats may be in order for DaniLeigh as rumors swirl on social media that she is expecting her first child.

The “Yellow Bone” star was spotted out over the weekend wearing a fitted red dress, and her little tummy appears to be protruding a bit. Fans quickly speculated that she was sporting a baby bump.

The 26-year-old singer announced that she and rapper DaBaby had parted ways last month after the drama surrounding a highly publicized love triangle that included rapper MeMe, who shares a daughter with DaBaby.

During a recent Instagram Story post, fans additionally speculated that Dani and DaBaby were in a vehicle together, which suggested that the two may have reconciled.

Neither Dani nor her “Bop” rapping former boo has confirmed the news of their rekindled romance, let alone a potential new love child on the way. Nevertheless, Twitter had a field day with the photo floating around.

If DaniLeigh is expecting a bundle of joy, let’s wish her a happy and healthy pregnancy.

MacKenzie Scott, Jeff Bezos’ Ex-Wife, Marries A Seattle School Teacher





Mackenzie Scott and Jeff Bezos made headlines in 2019 when the news of their divorce hit mainstream media. But, two years following the split, Scott happily walked down the aisle again. 

As reported by The Wall Street Journal on Sunday, Scott married Seattle teacher Dan Jewett. When the two officially wed is unknown. 

Bezos seems to be very supportive of the partnership, calling Dan a “great guy.” “I am happy and excited for the both of them,” he told The Wall Street Journal

Rumors of Scott’s remarriage more than likely began to circulate after Jewett added his name to Scott’s Giving Pledge, an initiative started by Warren Buffet and Bill and Melinda Gates. 

Grateful for the opportunity to give back, Jewett never imagined his efforts would be as great as they soon will become.  

“It is strange to be writing a letter indicating I plan to give away the majority of my wealth during my lifetime, as I have never sought to gather the kind of wealth required to feel like saying such a thing would have a particular meaning,” Jewett wrote. 

“In a stroke of happy coincidence, I am married to one of the most generous and kind people I know — and joining her in a commitment to pass on an enormous financial wealth to serve others,” Jewett continued on. 

Jewett is not wrong about his new wife’s generous nature. 

After Scott’s split with Bezos, she was left with a 4% stake in Amazon, which then was a whopping $38.3 billion, Bloomberg reported, according to People

Since then, Scott has been a dedicated philanthropist.

In just the past four months, the 50-year-old has donated about $4.2 billion to 384 organizations. 

As of now, Scott is the 22nd richest person in the world, People reported.

Dallas Cop Charged For Arranging Two Murders, Including A Woman Who He Called “Informant”





A Dallas police officer is now on the other side of the law after authorities alleged he orchestrated the murders of two people in 2017.

According to PEOPLE, Bryan Riser, 36 and a 13-year veteran with the city police, faces murder charges that include a charge for the murder of a 31-year-old woman acting as a police informant.

Edgardo Garcia, Dallas’ Police Chief, detailed the allegations against the former officer during a recent press conference, saying that he had hired someone to kidnap and kill Albert Douglas, 61, and Liza Saenz, 31.

One of the three men involved and charged in the killings told prosecutors nearly two years ago that he had information on Riser, the chief added.

The man was a longtime friend of Riser, and they use to rob houses together years before. The two caught up with one another in 2013 when Riser approached him with an offer.

Riser is accused of arranging Douglas’ murder first, paying $3,500 for the killing. The witness said Douglas was abducted in early 2017 and was fatally shot and dumped in the Trinity River. The body was never found.

Two weeks later is when Riser offered him $6,000 to kidnap and kill Saenz. Saenz was shot multiple times, and her remains were tossed in the river. Authorities recovered the remains on March 10, 2017.

In September 2017, police arrested Kevin Kidd, 28, Emmanuel Kilpatrick, 31, and Jermon Simmons, 35, charging all three in Saenz’s slaying.

Riser now faces two murder charges for his role in the killings. He is being held on a hefty $5 million bail.
