Corona: if they lied then, why wouldn’t they lie now?

Jon Rappaport – 3/27/2020

In recent articles, I have used and quoted public health stats on ordinary flu compared to COVID-19, and showed the insane contradictions in numbers and in government containment strategies.

Now let me take another angle.  The CDC has been lying about ordinary flu for decades.  So why wouldn’t they continue their fine tradition of lying about COVID-19?  Why should we believe ANYTHING they say about COVID-19?  Why should we accept their case numbers, their ominous warnings, their insistence on lockdowns which wreck economies?

It’s simple.  If a boy shows up at a grocery store the first six days of the week and steals an apple every time, when he shows up on the seventh day, why wouldn’t we expect him to steal an apple?  And if that boy were the president of the United States imposing draconian measures on the population—shouldn’t we expect him to be lying?

SO … the first issue is: how many people in the US die every year from the flu?

The CDC reshuffles its estimates.  It usually parrots an annual figure of 36,000.  Recently, it claimed 12,000-61,000 deaths per year.

In December of 2005, the British Medical Journal (online) published a shocking report by Peter Doshi, that created tremors through the halls of the CDC.

Here is a quote from Doshi’s report, Are US flu death figures more PR than science?” (BMJ 2005; 331:1412):

“[According to CDC statistics], ‘influenza and pneumonia’ took 62,034 lives in 2001—61,777 of which were attributable to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was the flu virus positively identified.” [Let’s see … they told us that 60,000 people died from influenza, but only 18 could be confirmed! — What?]

Boom!

You see, the CDC created one overall category that combines both flu and pneumonia deaths. Why do they do this?  Because they disingenuously assume the pneumonia deaths are complications stemming from the flu.

This is an absurd assumption. Pneumonia has a number of causes.

But even worse, in all the flu and pneumonia deaths, only 18 revealed the presence of an influenza virus.

Therefore, the CDC could not say, with assurance, that more than 18 Americans died of influenza in 2001. Not 36,000 deaths. 18 deaths!

Doshi continued his assessment of published CDC flu-death statistics: “Between 1979 and 2001, [CDC] data show an average of 1348 [flu] deaths per year (range 257 to 3006).” These figures refer to flu supposedly separated out from pneumonia.

This death toll is obviously far lower than the parroted 36,000 figure.

However, when lab tests have to actually find the flu virus in patients, the numbers of flu deaths plummet even further.

In other words, the news (propaganda) is all based on promotion and hype.

“Well, uh, we’ve said that 36,000 people die from the flu every year in the US. But actually, it’s probably closer to 20.  Who knows?  However, we can’t admit that, because if we did, we’d be exposing our gigantic psyop. The whole campaign to scare people into getting a flu shot would have about the same effect as warning people to carry iron umbrellas, in case toasters fall out of upper-story windows…and, by the way, we’d be put in prison for fraud.”

[Note: Prior to Doshi publishing the above piece about flu deaths, I engaged in a series of emails with him about that issue, and independent researcher, Martin Maloney, made a major contribution to uncovering the CDC deception.]

The second big issue is: how many people diagnosed with the flu really have the flu?

Peter Doshi again, writing in the online BMJ (British Medical Journal), reveals another monstrosity.

As Doshi states, every year, respiratory samples are taken from flu patients in the US and tested in labs. Here is the kicker: only a small percentage of these samples show the presence of a flu virus.

This means: most of the people in America who are diagnosed by doctors with the flu actually have no flu virus.

So they don’t have the flu.

Therefore, even if you assume the flu vaccine is useful and safe, it couldn’t possibly prevent all those “flu cases” that aren’t really flu cases.

No vaccine could possibly work … unless pigs can fly.

Here’s the exact quote from Doshi’s BMJ review, “Influenza: marketing vaccines by marketing disease” (BMJ 2013; 346:f3037):

“…even the ideal influenza vaccine, matched perfectly to circulating strains of wild influenza and capable of stopping all influenza viruses, can only deal with a small part of the ‘flu’ problem because most ‘flu’ appears to have nothing to do with influenza. Every year, hundreds of thousands of respiratory specimens are tested across the US. Of those tested, on average 16% are found to be influenza positive.”

“…It’s no wonder so many people feel that ‘flu shots’ don’t work: for most so-called ‘flu,’ they can’t.”

Because most diagnosed cases of the flu aren’t the flu.

So even if you’re a true believer in mainstream vaccine theory, you’re on the short end here. They’re conning your socks off.

Let me give you a gigantic example of this massive flu-case-counting deception.  It involved a flu “epidemic” which you might remember called Swine Flu.

In the late summer of 2009, the Swine Flu epidemic was hyped to the sky by the CDC. The Agency was calling for all Americans to take the Swine Flu vaccine.

The CDC was concealing a scandal.

At the time, star CBS investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, was working on a Swine Flu story. She discovered that the CDC had secretly stopped counting US cases of the illness—while, of course, continuing to warn Americans about its unchecked spread.

Understand that the CDC’s main job is counting cases and reporting the numbers.

What was the Agency up to?

Here is an excerpt from my 2014 interview with Sharyl Attkisson:

Rappoport: In 2009, you spearheaded coverage of the so-called Swine Flu pandemic. You discovered that, in the summer of 2009, the Centers for Disease Control, ignoring their federal mandate, [secretly] stopped counting Swine Flu cases in America. Yet they continued to stir up fear about the “pandemic,” without having any real measure of it. Wasn’t that another investigation of yours that was shut down? Wasn’t there more to find out?

Attkisson: The implications of the story were even worse than that. We discovered through our FOI efforts that before the CDC mysteriously stopped counting Swine Flu cases, they had learned that almost none of the cases they had counted as Swine Flu was, in fact, Swine Flu or any sort of flu at all! The interest in the story from one [CBS] executive was very enthusiastic. He said it was “the most original story” he’d seen on the whole Swine Flu epidemic. But others pushed to stop it [after it was published on the CBS News website] and, in the end, no [CBS television news] broadcast wanted to touch it. We aired numerous stories pumping up the idea of an epidemic, but not the one that would shed original, new light on all the hype.

It [Attkisson’s article] was fair, accurate, legally approved and a heck of a story. With the CDC keeping the true Swine Flu stats secret, it meant that many in the public took and gave their children an experimental vaccine that as not necessary.

—end of interview excerpt—

It was routine for doctors all over America to send tissue samples from patients they’d diagnosed with Swine Flu, or the “most likely” Swine Flu patients, to labs for testing. And overwhelmingly, those samples were coming back with the result: not Swine Flu, not any kind of flu.

That was the big secret. That’s what the CDC was hiding. That’s why they stopped reporting Swine Flu case numbers. That’s what Attkisson had discovered. So she was shut down.

But it gets even worse.

Because about three weeks after Attkisson’s findings were published on the CBS News website, the CDC, obviously in a panic, decided to double down. If one lie is exposed, tell an even bigger one. A much bigger one.

Here, from a November 12, 2009, WebMD article is the CDC’s response: “Shockingly, 14 million to 34 million U.S. residents – the CDC’s best guess is 22 million – came down with H1N1 swine flu by Oct. 17 [2009].” (“22 million cases of Swine Flu in US,” by Daniel J. DeNoon).

Are your eyeballs popping? They should be.

In the summer of 2009, the CDC secretly stops counting Swine Flu cases in America, because the overwhelming percentage of lab tests from likely Swine Flu patients shows no sign of Swine Flu or any other kind of flu.

There was no Swine Flu epidemic.

Then, the CDC estimated there were 22 MILLION cases of Swine Flu in the US.

So…the premise that the CDC would never lie about important matters like, oh, a vaccine causing autism…you can lay that one to rest.

The CDC will lie about anything it wants to. It will boldly go where no person interested in real science will go.

It will completely ignore its mandate to care about human health, and it will get away with it—as long as people are willing to accept falsehoods instead of the truth, as long as people would rather cling to what government officials tell them.

And now, with the CDC spearheading the operation called COVID-19—from confirmation of the discovery of a “new virus,” to guidelines for diagnostic testing in patients, to case number counts, to containment policies, lockdowns that wreck economies and lives—do you really want to believe what they say?

UK downgrades COVID-19; no longer a high consequence infectious disease

 

The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) is also of the opinion that COVID-19 should no longer be classified as an HCID (high incidence infectious disease).”

Where is the media roar all over the world—blasting out the news that the UK government no longer considers COVID an existential threat to all life on Earth?

No giant headlines indicating that the dominoes are now starting to fall in another direction—away from sheer suicidal insanity?

Oh, that’s right, it’s the MEDIA.

The UK government, on its website, announced on March 23, under “Status of COVID-19”:

“As of 19 March 2020, COVID-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious diseases (HCID) in the UK.”

“The 4 nations public health HCID group made an interim recommendation in January 2020 to classify COVID-19 as an HCID. This was based on consideration of the UK HCID criteria about the virus and the disease with information available during the early stages of the outbreak. Now that more is known about COVID-19, the public health bodies in the UK have reviewed the most up to date information about COVID-19 against the UK HCID criteria. They have determined that several features have now changed; in particular, more information is available about mortality rates (low overall), and there is now greater clinical awareness and a specific and sensitive laboratory test, the availability of which continues to increase.

The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) is also of the opinion that COVID-19 should no longer be classified as an HCID.

“The need to have a national, coordinated response remains, but this is being met by the government’s COVID-19 response.”

“Cases of COVID-19 are no longer managed by HCID treatment centres only. All healthcare workers managing possible and confirmed cases should follow the updated national infection and prevention (IPC) guidance for COVID-19, which supersedes all previous IPC guidance for COVID-19. This guidance includes instructions about different personal protective equipment (PPE) ensembles that are appropriate for different clinical scenarios.”

Corona Cases: The Numbers Game

 
John Rappaport – 3/26/2020

In this episode of public health bureaucrats go crazy, let’s look at their numbers.  Let’s accept their reality for the moment—the reality they claim to be working from—and trace the implications.  Buckle up.


Start with Europe and just plain flu.  Not COV.  According to the World Health Organization (WHO) Europe, “During the winter months, influenza may infect up to 20% of the population…”  That’s ordinary seasonal flu.

The population of Europe is 741 million people.  This works out to 148 million cases of ordinary flu.  Not once.  Every year.  EVERY YEAR.

According to statista.com, “As of March 23, 2020, there have been 170,424 confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) across the whole of Europe since the first confirmed cases in France on January 25.”

I urge readers to roll those comparative figures around in their minds, and realize that ordinary flu has never been called a pandemic, and has certainly never resulted in locking down countries.

If we take the COV Europe numbers I just quoted, which cover a period of two months, and multiply by six, to estimate the number for a year, we arrive at 1,022,544 (appx. one million) cases.  And again, ordinary flu cases are 148 million EVERY YEAR.  Every year—and no mention of a pandemic. No lockdowns.

Let’s go to Italy.  According to statista.com, “Italy has the highest amount of confirmed [COV] cases in Europe with 59,138.”  That’s as of March 23.  If you multiply by six, to get a projected annual figure, you arrive at 360,000 cases


Now let’s look at ordinary flu cases for Italy in a given year.  According to sciencedirect.com, “In the winter seasons from 2013/14 to 2016/17, an estimated average of 5,290,000 ILI [influenza-like illness] cases occurred in Italy, corresponding to an incidence of 9%.” That’s 5 million plus each year.  Not just onceWas a seasonal flu pandemic declared in Italy?  Ever?  Was the whole country ever locked down as a result?  No!

Finally, let’s look at figures for ordinary flu, for the whole planet.  A study published in the journal, Pharmacy and Therapeutics, states, “Influenza is a highly contagious respiratory illness that is responsible for significant morbidity and mortality. Approximately 9% of the world’s population is affected annually, with up to 1 billion infections, 3 to 5 million severe cases, and 300,000 to 500,000 deaths each year.”

A BILLION cases EVERY YEAR.  Is this labeled a pandemic?  Is the whole world locked down every year?  No!

Feel free to track the purported number of COV cases as time passes.  As I write this, the number is 392,286 (250 times less than flu), and (purported) deaths are 17,147.  Let me know when the COV case number reaches A BILLION for the year and the number of deaths passes 300,000.  Then keep me posted on how the one billion COV cases are repeated EVERY YEAR with at least 300,000 deaths annually.

And that concludes this episode of public health officials go crazy and wreck economies and lives in the process.

There should be a tracking “world-o-meter” providing live updates on THOSE figures.

Here’s what the CDC says about the test for the Coronavirus

Jon Rappaport – 3/24/2020

Straight from the horse’s mouth—both sides

—The CDC (US Centers for Disease Control) admits the coronavirus test is flawed.  That’s the overview and the takeaway—

As my readers know, I’ve described why the widespread diagnostic test for the coronavirus is insufficient, misleading, useless, and deceptive.

That test, used all over the world where it is available, is called the PCR.

It DIAGNOSES patients.  “Yes, you have the virus.”  “No you don’t.”

A very alert reader sent me a link to a US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) document about the test.  The CDC establishes the guidelines for how the test should be done, and what the results mean.

Here is a CDC paragraph about results.  I suggest you read it several times.

“Positive [test] results are indicative of active infection with 2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease. Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.”

I’m going to blow past the blatant contradiction in that CDC paragraph and cut to the chase.

The key line in that paragraph is: “The agent detected [the coronavirus] may not be the definite cause of disease.”

WHAT???

CDC: Yeah, you see, folks, ahem, the test could say the coronavirus is there in somebody’s body, but the virus may not be causing disease… [The virus is common and can be in many people without causing disease! The test can’t tell if a person is sick. It only tests for the virus – and that in itself is unreliable.]
 
On one level, the CDC is admitting the test could turn up false positives: the test could SAY a patient has the coronavirus, but he really doesn’t. [Or it can say that someone has the coronavirus but is not, and will not, be sick].

This isn’t a footnote stuck at the bottom of a report.  It’s right there near the top of the section about the meaning of the test.

On a deeper level, the CDC is saying straight out, IF THE TEST SHOWS A CORONAVIRUS IS PRESENT, THAT DOESN’T MEAN IT’S CAUSING DISEASE.

Well, yes, I’ve pointed out that the test has an inherent problem.  At best, it might show that a virus is present in the patient’s body.  But the test is incapable of determining HOW MUCH virus is ACTIVELY REPLICATING in the patient’s body.

And why is that important?  Because, to even begin to say a virus is causing actual illness in a human, there would have to be millions and millions of the virus replicating in his body—and the PCR test has never been proven, in the real world, to be able to make such a judgment call accurately.

But, if you read that CDC quote again, you’ll see the CDC is ordering labs to report a positive test result to public health agencies—where it will be counted as a “coronavirus case” come hell or high water.

Thank you, CDC.  So very, very much.  The next ship for Uranus leaves tomorrow.  Pile on board and make the trip.  You can run tests there to your heart’s content.

“Travel Papers” and the Pandemic Patriot Act 2.0

Daisy Luther – 3/ 24/ 2020

Did you ever think we’d reach the point in the United States where you had to have papers to travel from one place to another? It appears we’re at the point. [The precedent was already set. We must have a Drivers License to travel by automobile, and a Social Security card to do business. The new travel restrictions are only in a few cities so far, not yet nation-wide. I expect to hear soon about police killing some mom or dad who was desperate to go out of the house to purchase food or medicine. – ed.]

The MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) issued “travel papers” to their workers.

On March 17th, a few days before New York issued a shelter in place order, the MTA issued “travel papers” to their employees to prepare for a potential coronavirus curfew. The NY Daily News reports:

If non-emergency travel is restricted, workers can show law enforcement officials the letter if they’re stopped on the way to work.

“This letter along with current New York City Transit identification identifies this individual as an essential employee who is required to travel during the curfew imposed due to the Coronavirus emergency,” states the letter, which is signed by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Police Department’s acting chief Joseph McGrann. “Please give this individual due consideration during this crisis.”

MTA spokeswoman Abbey Collins said the letter was distributed on Monday to a “limited number of NYCT bus employees living in New Jersey” because the state’s Gov. Murphy suggested imposing a statewide curfew between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. (source)

Clearly, the wheels have been in motion for several days. And it’s not just the MTA.

Your papers, please.

For everyone who thought articles about the Lockdown of America were “hysterical overstatement” and that they could still do whatever they wanted because it wasn’t really being enforced, what are you thinking now that “travel papers” are being handed out? To me, this sounds like lockdown – an incremental step toward a society that nobody hopes to see.

Here are photos of “travel papers” provided by employers so workers could get to and from work. These are employees who work in industries like healthcare, pharmacies, and foodservice, as well as those who work in the production, transport, and sales of essential supplies.

One reader wrote, “We were told to show these if we got stopped on the way to or from work and that if the authorities gave us any trouble, to not argue and just go back home.”

Here are some of the papers that people sent. Identifying information has been redacted.

These were papers sent to some people in Pennsylvania, New York, Arizona, Michigan, North Carolina, Kansas, New Jersey, West Virginia, Virginia, Oregon, Florida, Louisiana, and Ohio. Industries mentioned in the papers were trucking, grocery stores, medical clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, city transit workers, railroads, food production plants, pharmacies, gas stations, stores like Target and Walmart, and automotive repair facilities.

Most people were given their papers on Friday or Saturday and told they’d need them to get to and from work starting the week ahead.

I wonder who’s going to be checking your “travel papers.”  Will it be the local PD? The National Guard? The military? Maybe it’ll be all those TSA agents who are currently out of work but already accustomed to molesting innocent travelers.

What does this mean for those told they’d be able to go to the store?

We’ve been repeatedly told during task force press conferences that nobody needs to worry about buying extra supplies because the stores will remain open. We were chastised about stocking up and “hoarding” supplies. But if you need travel papers just to get to work, how will a person get to the store when they need to pick up some groceries? Will these papers only be required during certain hours?

It’s easy to prove you just went to the store when you have a bag of groceries in hand, but how do you prove you are going to the store? Will they just begin distributing the food to us as opposed to allowing people to shop for their own food?

A little clarity and less subterfuge would go a lot further toward preventing concern that we’re about to go full Wuhan here in America.

If I didn’t have supplies already, I would head to the store today and get enough for a couple of extra weeks at the very least. Here are some ideas for finding supplies amidst the picked-over inventory that remains.

So, what happens if you get caught without your papers? I’m glad you asked.

At this point, the “Department of Justice” sounds like one of those other phrases the government uses to mean the complete opposite. Like the “Patriot Act” which is as far from patriotic as it gets.

And speaking of the Patriot Act, the government is now introducing what I’d like to dub the Pandemic Act

The DoJ has secretly asked Congress to draft legislation allowing them to indefinitely detain people without due process during the coronavirus pandemic. Because who doesn’t want to add a little spice to our economic crisis with the added threat of indefinite detention?

Documents reviewed by POLITICO detail the department’s requests to lawmakers on a host of topics, including the statute of limitations, asylum and the way court hearings are conducted. POLITICO also reviewed and previously reported on documents seeking the authority to extend deadlines on merger reviews and prosecutions…

…In one of the documents, the department proposed that Congress grant the attorney general power to ask the chief judge of any district court to pause court proceedings “whenever the district court is fully or partially closed by virtue of any natural disaster, civil disobedience, or other emergency situation.”

The proposal would also grant those top judges broad authority to pause court proceedings during emergencies. It would apply to “any statutes or rules of procedure otherwise affecting pre-arrest, post-arrest, pre-trial, trial, and post-trial procedures in criminal and juvenile proceedings and all civil process and proceedings,” according to draft legislative language the department shared with Congress. In making the case for the change, the DOJ document wrote that individual judges can currently pause proceedings during emergencies, but that their proposal would make sure all judges in any particular district could handle emergencies “in a consistent manner.” (source)

What the heck are “pre-arrest” procedures, anyway? Is that the part where government investigators go and set someone up to commit a crime like all those “bombing plots” the FBI keeps saving us from?

I wouldn’t be surprised to see another 300-page legislation like the original Patriot Act that was rolled out just weeks after 911, giving us the TSA, indefinite detention, and all sorts of other dystopian nonsense.

Never let a serious crisis go to waste.

In the infamous words of Rahm Emmanuel, the former mayor of Chicago, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

It looks like the government is taking those words to heart with travel papers and new draconian laws.

Since I wrote the article about America locking down yesterday, more states have joined in. Now New York, California, Illinois, Connecticut, and New Jersey are all under restriction.

Is your state coming soon? Are these lockdowns being rolled out incrementally, starting out gently (sure you can walk your dog!) and then moving on to the point where you can’t leave your house without “travel papers?”

So far, 2020 has brought us an out-of-control deadly pandemic, an economic collapsestatewide lockdowns, and now travel papers and a potential new law to eradicate the Fifth Amendment.

I hesitate to ask what’s next.

[Remember, the danger is not from the corona virus – it is from government thugs and panic-crazed citizens fighting over toilet paper. -ed]

Corona Is a Very Mild Virus, No More Deadly Than Many Others We Don’t Make a Fuss About


Marko Marjanović – 3/23/2020

Let’s get one thing straight. In terms of capacity to kill you SARS-CoV-2-19 is an extraordinarily weak virus.

The fatality rates being thrown around are all over the place, 8% for Italy, 3.4% from WHO, 2% from the early days for China. But there is a good reason to believe all of these are nonsensical. They’re accurate for what they represent, which is the ratio between recorded instances of infection and fatalities where infection was present, but they are absolutely not the fatality rate of either the SARS-CoV-2-19 infection or even of the COVID-19 disease.

Data from Italy suggests the median age of fatalities is 79.5 years, where Italian life expectancy is 82.5 years. Of the 2500+ victims, only 17 were under 50. Also, 99 percent of all fatalities had pre-existing conditions. True enough, Italian health authorities were rather liberal in their inclusion of “pre-existing conditions” counting even often rather benign conditions like high blood pressure. But there is something else you have to consider:

  • 48.5 percent of those died had 3 or more illnesses and 25.6 percent had at least two
  • The thing about statistics of natural phenomena is that there’s a sea of difference between something occurring 95% of the time and 99% of the time. For example, at a normal distribution to go from covering 95% of the population to 99.7% you need to go from 2 standard deviations to 3. If 90 percent of fatalities had at least one pre-existing condition I’d think nothing of it, but tell me it’s 99 percent (!) and you’ve got my attention.

So then, how is it that a viral disease that according to empirical data collected by Italian health authorities has the capacity to kill only the most enfeebled of us is stacking up a kill rate of 2, 3.4 or 8 percent? Simple: It isn’t.

In fact, this data indicates that SARS-CoV-2-19 is very similar to other coronaviruses in that it represents next to no risk to a healthy individual, but can stack up a body count when it encounters a population that is particularly frail:

…even some so-called mild or common-cold-type coronaviruses that have been known for decades can have case fatality rates as high as 8% when they infect elderly people in nursing homes.

In fact, such “mild” coronaviruses infect tens of millions of people every year, and account for 3% to 11% of those hospitalized in the U.S. with lower respiratory infections each winter.

These “mild” coronaviruses may be implicated in several thousands of deaths every year worldwide, though the vast majority of them are not documented with precise testing. Instead, they are lost as noise among 60 million deaths from various causes every year.

In fact, the actual infection death rate is almost certainly below 1%, possibly as low as 0.05% (a death rate of 1 in 2000):

The one situation where an entire, closed population was tested was the Diamond Princess cruise ship and its quarantine passengers. The case fatality rate there was 1.0%, but this was a largely elderly population, in which the death rate from Covid-19 is much higher.

Projecting the Diamond Princess mortality rate onto the age structure of the U.S. population, the death rate among people infected with Covid-19 would be 0.125%. But since this estimate is based on extremely thin data — there were just seven deaths among the 700 infected passengers and crew — the real death rate could stretch from five times lower (0.025%) to five times higher (0.625%).

It is also possible that some of the passengers who were infected might die later, and that tourists may have different frequencies of chronic diseases — a risk factor for worse outcomes with SARS-CoV-2 infection — than the general population. Adding these extra sources of uncertainty, reasonable estimates for the case fatality ratio in the general U.S. population vary from 0.05% to 1%.

Keep in mind that a virus is driven only to multiply and to spread. To accomplish that it has to sneak past your immune system, or disable it, or fight it, but it doesn’t gain anything from killing the host. To the contrary, it needs the host to replicate itself further and, as it does not have cells of its own, to even fully exist. Evolutionary successful viruses, which the coronaviruses are, do not cause massive damage to the host — albeit the damage they do cause may be enough to push someone who is already frail over the edge.

Ah, but supposedly SARS-CoV-2 is a new specimen from the coronavirus family that has mutated in a way that for it this is no longer holds true. That is possible in principle, but as we’ve seen above that isn’t where data is pointing to.

Of course, even if it is no more lethal than some of the other coronaviruses that we make zero fuss about SARS-CoV-2 could still be a uniquely dangerous threat if it was far more contagious. I wonder if that is true either. Sure the figures on its spread that media is serving daily look impressive when they’re served in a vacuum and when that is everything anyone talks about and looks at. But what is the context? How would those numbers look like served side-by-side with numbers on your run-of-the-mill influenza pandemic that we’re hit with each winter? 

And who is to say this spread started only just now? Seeing just how mild and non-lethal the SARS-CoV-2 is, is it possible it was already present but we just didn’t notice it, and what we’re following right now isn’t so much its spread, but rather its discovery, detection, and mapping?

After all, it’s not as if coronaviruses had not been killing high numbers of frail people all along:

In the U.S., for example, so far this season 1,073,976 specimens have been tested and 222,552 (20.7%) have tested positive for influenza. In the same period, the estimated number of influenza-like illnesses is between 36,000,000 and 51,000,000, with an estimated 22,000 to 55,000 flu deaths.

Note the uncertainty about influenza-like illness deaths: a 2.5-fold range, corresponding to tens of thousands of deaths. Every year, some of these deaths are due to influenza and some to other viruses, like common-cold coronaviruses.

The Only Pandemic in America Is That of Unbridled Fear and a Total Lack of Intelligent Thought

AND PANIC

Gary D. Barnett – 3/19/ 2020

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” ~ Frank Herbert,

Can the common flu cause people in America and worldwide to lose their minds, and lose all ability to think? Apparently, that is the case, as Americans have gone insane over a new monster created out of thin air called coronavirus. I have anticipated a scenario such as this, and written about it for the past decade or more, but the response by the people of this country is more ridiculous than even I could have imagined. It is the most pathetic sight I have seen in my life.

Without any initial testing, without any proof, without any certainty as to what this new fake threat to all mankind actually is, the world is now in lockdown, and therefore very easy to control. A better plan for the globalists could not have been imagined, as the sheep get into line for sheering without any resistance or question. I have watched this take place, and it was structured incrementally, all along testing the gullibility and fear of the populace, and as it progressed, it became obvious to those perpetrating this lie that taking over the entire country was going to be a cakewalk.

What is happening now is exactly as Bill Gates previewed it in his idiocy called Event 201, which seems to have been the initial test and propaganda piece set in place to start this engine. This was no coincidence, regardless of what the mainstream media and globalists’ claim, but was an active exercise for what was to come. And yes, this is real conspiracy, not “conspiracy theory.”

I will not relent in my efforts to expose the fact that the U.S. economy has been decimated due to spending, debt, and money creation for many years. Considering the situation in 2008, when all markets should have failed, the current economic picture is not only far worse, but has reached the pinnacle of disaster. This economy cannot be saved by money printing, QE, or sending checks out to those that have been forcibly relieved of their jobs by government fiat. I firmly believe that a major factor in why this so-called pandemic was created is to shift blame for the impending economic collapse on this virus, and hide the fact that the Fed and central banks around the world completely destroyed the economy. Had the markets and economy been allowed to fail without any fake pandemic, the government and banking system would have been exposed for the criminal thieves they are. This could not be allowed to happen by the ruling elites. Hence, the flu will kill us all!

As I wrote yesterday here:

“It is my belief that the regular flu is being used as a cover for this fake virus, and will serve to hide fault of a state-created economic collapse. In the process, all will become slaves to the state, and this is not a temporary tyranny, as it will last long after this current non-risk is over. Today, Trump and his entourage of idiots stood before the cameras and said now we can do this next spring to help stop the flu! That is basically an announcement that these measures can be used for any excuse deemed “necessary” by the ruling class. They are actually preparing the sheep for ongoing martial law.”

Coronavirus, according to Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, is a part of all viruses, and 8% to 15% of viruses are coronavirus, so that will show up in testing. This is especially the case when testing the already sick and dying, the old and infirmed, and this kind of testing would be far different than random population tests. In other words, if testing is set up to test sick people, up to 15% will show coronavirus. It is a natural part of flu, and will always show up, so it would be easy to use to fool the dumbed-down and dependent herd. They are easily frightened, and expect government to take care of them from cradle to grave, so this test has been successful for those intending to take control of populations around the world.

Today, we all face horrendous consequences of this staged pandemic. The economic collapse alone will devastate much of the population. This will cause unheard of disaster, and will bankrupt many around the country. This will be life-changing for all Americans, and will change forever the landscape of what is falsely considered a “free” country. Voluntary lockdowns will quickly become mandatory lockdowns, which requires martial law and certainly medical martial law. Police will patrol not for real crime, but to force all to stay in a home prison. National guard units have been deployed in many states already, and that will continue to expand, and then the military will take to the streets to enforce government mandates once full martial law is implemented. In cities, gun sweeps will begin soon, as many areas have already banned gun and ammunition sales.

One of the saddest and most pathetic behaviors that have emerged in this chaos is that most all citizens are accepting everything they are fed, are monitoring their neighbors and anyone showing signs of dissent, and reporting them to authorities. They are helping to enslave themselves without any concept of the stupidity of their actions.

Get prepared for total chaos, economic destruction, martial law, forced vaccinations, permanent job loss, lockdowns, panic, riots, and state violence against dissenters and regular citizens that has never been seen in this country before now. Isolation will be universal, and many more will die from these tyrannical measures than any flu could ever cause.

The governing bodies are calling this a war, and they are correct, but this war is an aggressive war against Americans, not against any virus or outside foreign threat. The enemy now is us, and the aggressor forces will include full military power, with the sole objective of total control.

Coronavirus Case Reports in The U.S. Are Exploding Out of Nowhere?

 
Bill Sardi – 3/23/ 2020

Ron Klain, the ex-federal EBOLA CZAR, issued a warning that coronavirus cases are going to “explode” in the U.S.  On Thursday, March 19, 4,940 new cases were reported. Coronavirus deaths are also predicted to rise precipitously.  But here is how this ruse is accomplished.

Buried in the news report is this language: “numbers in the U.S. are rising sharply partly because testing is being more widespread.”

So indiscriminate news reports will sound alarming because news agencies want to capture readership.  This parade of irresponsible news reports is anticipated to raise levels of anxiety in the American population at large.  The “What do we do now?” panic sets in.

Because there are more cases of coronavirus infection reported with more testing, and because testing produces a high percentage of false positive tests that falsely indicate a person has the disease when they don’t, it will be easy to mislead the public and cause the public to accept draconian community lockdowns.  Just the intentional withholding of toilet paper supplies could provoke civilian unrest and cause the public to clamor for troops in the streets to halt civil unrest. 

And just because more deaths are likely to be attributed to coronavirus does not necessarily mean the virus is the cause of the pneumonia that kills.  It just could be a companion virus.  Or it could even be tuberculosis.

An overlay of US maps shows the same geographical incidence for coronavirus as for tuberculosis.  So which germ is it?

Despite the admission that coronavirus was in circulation in the U.S. prior to the initial news reports of a coronavirus outbreak in China in January 2020, this means coronavirus was either causing so few deaths it went unnoticed or simply was not causing symptomatic disease.

So, what are we worried about if we get infected, experience mild or no symptoms, and develop natural long-term antibodies against this pathogenic disease, without need for future concern?

With a lower respiratory tract infection (lungs versus throat and bronchus) lungs can fill with fluid (pneumonia) blocking oxygen transfer to the blood.  Patients drown in their own fluids.

Chronic lower respiratory diseases are already the number four cause of death in the U.S., resulting in 160,201 deaths in 2017.

More than 250,000 people are hospitalized for pneumonia annually in the US.  The mortality rate for pneumonia in the US population (all ages) is 15.1 deaths per 100,000.

An estimated 50,000 Americans die of pneumonia annually (137/DAY).

An estimated 4,749 pneumonia-associated deaths per year (13/day) are reported for the State of New York (2018 data), an epicenter for this infectious disease. Unless New York health officials report excess pneumonia-related deaths over the normal seasonal occurrence, the published number will be totally misleading.

Most deaths associated with coronavirus infection and resultant pneumonia occur among aged adults, over age 70 and predominately over age 80.

According to STATISTA, there are ~12,680,000 Americans over age 80 (2018).  Using an estimation that 80% of the 50,000 deaths due to pneumonia in the U.S. occur among 80-90-year-olds (40,000 deaths or 110 pneumonia-related deaths per day), the pneumonia mortality rate would only be ~4/10ths of one percent of that total population.

A Stanford University epidemiologist says reports of widespread death from COVID-19 coronavirus are unsubstantiated and irresponsible, but the propaganda is controlling the daily decisions by politicians how to manage this disease.

All of the health pronouncements issued from public health agencies, particularly the Centers for Disease Control, emanate from an infectious disease that is not even as deadly as the seasonal flu.  Yet it is being reported in the news, giving the false impression millions of Americans are going to die.

Bottom line, misleading news reports are likely to report thousands of new coronavirus-related deaths that are likely no more than a part of the normal annual course of events.

This Is Madness, and You Will Now Be Required to Build Your Own Prisons!

 
Gary D. Barnett – March 21, 2020

“The mediocre masses make very few demands of the mediocrities of a higher order, submitting stupidly and cheerfully to their guidance” ~ Alfred de Vigny, Stello.

The newest pandemic to strike America, and the rest of the world as well, is a disease with many strains of the gene called “stupidity.” I have not in my lifetime seen this much ignorance displayed by so many all at the same time. Something so normal as a minor flu has stilled the earth, and has caused almost all of humanity to be consumed by fear and a total lack of logical thought. It is even worse than I present here, as people are going against each other, monitoring their neighbors for the state, hiding in their homes as ordered, closing their businesses, voluntarily leaving their jobs, and cowering to the false authority of a government that is pretending to be God on high.

As of this writing, a little over 10,000 people have supposedly died from this so-called coronavirus, and that number is most likely much overstated. All this while 300,000 to 700,000 will die worldwide this year from the common flu. This is no pandemic; it is madness. Why are so many so blind?

There are so many totalitarian agendas being met, that little will be left for the ruling elite to accomplish, as the entirety of the population is making it easy for the government to turn this country into an authoritarian cesspool. This is rule by the few over a weak and mindless proletariat. If the real criminals were as easy to round up and control as the collective society of America, there would be no crime. Instead, the criminals will remain in power, while the rest of this pathetic populace will house in their own prisons.

Propaganda at this level is unheard of, and this moment in time will go down as the most absurd and fantastical idiocy of our day. All should fear for their very lives, but not due to any fake virus or pandemic, but because they have submitted to an absurdity beyond the imagination of the sane. Apparently, the world we have known is over, and the new world order that will replace it will be one of total control. This is not science fiction; it is now reality.

There is no way to know for sure if this alleged new virus is real or fake, but what is certain is that people worldwide have accepted the hype, and are panicking to an extent that is sheer lunacy. The most likely and most plausible cause of this virus is that this flu strain, regardless that it is not what is being projected, was created in a lab, and if that is accurate, then this entire takeover of the world economy was purposely planned far in advance. This is how the ruling elite and their pawns in government do things, and the only new aspect of this is the severity of the propaganda, and the ludicrous lack of response to those lies by the common collective hordes of sleeplike drones.

The economy as it has existed is finished, and a new system will be forthcoming. Cash will have to be eliminated, whether it be due to a false threat of contagion or not, but a new fully controlled system will be implemented over time, and it will be digitally controlled. This will allow for the monetary system to be used to force people into compliance with all state rules and restrictions, because all access to life-sustaining needs will be subject to behavior and credit scores. This system that is coming is one that relies on a central grid controlled by a hidden governing body beholding to the master planners. This is called technocracy, and given that this coup is successful, it will in time become the norm.

Resistance will most likely be absent, just as it has been so far, mainly because once this economy is purged, and the financial collapse is complete, the destruction of current savings will be evident. This leaves most everyone vulnerable and dependent on government, just as is planned. Without freedom of movement, productive jobs, food, staples, and without wealth, little will remain for the lowly citizen other than to comply with state mandates in order to survive.

Trump, the dictator puppet in charge, has the power to ground all flights, to halt all stock trading for markets, and also could order all to stay in their homes by force of law. This would be nothing less than planned totalitarian rule by fiat, and would cause the end of many lives, and forever alter the lives of all remaining. Any left standing would be subject to martial law. This is not only possible, but could be coming soon.

This is what the “American people” have allowed by their apathetic behavior and indifference, and by their selfish desire for undeserved and unattainable equality. What will be left after this takeover will be an empty existence, and all will be equal, as all will be slaves. This is really happening, and is not temporary, but will be the new normal if a total revolt by the masses is not forthcoming. Be prepared for the worst mankind can dish out, because what will come of this is pure hell!

Coronavirus … Panic or Pandemic?

Does anyone remember the words of FDR:  “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”?

I wonder what he’d say today in light of the current state of PANIC over the coronavirus…

The coronavirus has absolutely dominated the news for the past couple of weeks. Travel has come to a standstill, states are forcing businesses to close, and some parts of the country are already under quarantine. Millions of people are out of work and panicked shoppers have left grocery store shelves bare.

Check out the photos that I took in our local grocery store yesterday. This was the bread aisle, but most of the other aisles were also barren.

If you’ve been to the grocery store lately, you’ve probably seen something similar. The impact on our social lives and the global economy has been massive, especially in the first few weeks of March. Major events have been postponed, thousands of businesses have been forced to close, and the stock markets have taken a major blow.

Health officials have asked people to practice “social distancing,” where we avoid group events and contact with one another as best we can. Recently, state and local governments have issued emergency orders banning bars, restaurants, gyms, and other social gathering places from remaining open.

In the midst of all that’s happening in the world, there is one underlying disease: FEAR.

People are panicking … begging the government to protect and save them.

But here’s the question few people seem to be asking…

“Do we have enough data to support the panic?

In a recent article by John P.A. Ioannidis (professor of medicine, of epidemiology and population health, of biomedical data science, and of statistics at Stanford University), he made some good points…

The current coronavirus disease, Covid-19, has been called a once-in-a-century pandemic. But it may be an evidence fiasco. … The data collected so far on how many people are infected and how the epidemic is evolving are utterly unreliable. Given the limited testing to date, some deaths and probably the vast majority of infections due to SARS-CoV-2 are being missed. Three months after the outbreak emerged, most countries, including the U.S., lack the ability to test a large number of people and no countries have reliable data on the prevalence of the virus in a representative random sample of the general population.”

He continued:

In the absence of data, “prepare-for-the-worst” type reasoning leads to extreme measures of social distancing and lockdowns. … If we decide to jump off the cliff, we need some data to inform us about the rationale of such an action and the chances of landing somewhere safe.”

Regardless of whether we have enough data or not, it seems like the mention of the “V” word is getting more and more frequent. Make no mistake… a coronavirus VACCINE is coming! Will it be “mandatory”?  Will anyone who refuses the vaccine be ostracized from society or be prohibited from traveling?

In a LA Times article from March 18th, they tell the story of Edward Jenner – crediting him with “saving the most lives ever” with the smallpox vaccine. Then they claim that the anti-vaxxers have “forgotten” about how successful the smallpox vaccine was.

According to the article:

This collective amnesia has allowed for the rise of the anti-vaccine movement, whose irresponsible adherents believe vaccines exist to line the pockets of Big Pharma. They ignore the fact that the smallpox vaccine was so overwhelmingly successful at eradicating the disease that it no longer is routinely given.  Are anti-vaxxers ready to start believing in vaccines again?

Please allow me to retort to this wildly inaccurate article…

Vaccinations became mandatory in England in 1853, and by 1857, fines and imprisonment awaited people who refused to be vaccinated against smallpox. And as Dr. Humphries just mentioned, once smallpox vaccination became mandatory in England, massive epidemics began to occur.  According to official figures of the Register General of England, between 1857 and 1859, there were over 14,000 deaths from smallpox. Then, between 1863 and 1865, there were over 20,000 smallpox deaths. A few years later, there were almost 45,000 smallpox deaths between 1870 and 1872.

Let’s just say that based on those death statistics, the smallpox vaccine was far from “overwhelmingly successful” as the article claims. I’d call that an abysmal failure!

According to Dr. Suzanne Humphries (in her book “Dissolving Illusions”) an interesting phenomenon occurred in a city called Leicester in England, which saw a massive outbreak of smallpox in 1871, despite an almost 100% vaccination rate. Over the next 15 years, the smallpox vaccine was mandatory and they continued to have outbreaks. However, on March 23, 1885, what became known as the “Great Demonstration” against mandatory vaccination took place in Leicester. The residents of Leicester were fed up and held a rally with over 80,000 people participating. They protested mandatory vaccines and actually won their freedom of choice. Over the next eight years, the vaccination rate went from approximately 95% to only 5%. During that period, if someone had smallpox, everyone in the “infected” house was placed in strict quarantine and the house thoroughly disinfected. And guess what happened! The death rates drastically decreased and there were no more outbreaks!

So the lessons we can learn from Leicester and smallpox is that the vaccine did NOT work, but actually CAUSED further outbreaks. Whereas quarantine, disinfection and isolation were successful at mitigating the spread of disease.

And while quarantine and isolation are good ideas, what about FORCED “Medical Martial Law”?

The Coming Coronavirus Vaccine

There are lots of promising, natural treatments available to help combat the virus, but nearly all global effort and funding has been dedicated to the development of a vaccine. In 2015, a patent was filed by The Pirbright Institute for the live, attenuated coronavirus. The application claims that the new virus could be used to create a vaccine for treating or preventing respiratory viruses. The patent was awarded in 2018.

Now, The Pirbright Institute is funded by the UK Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs, the WHO, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. All of these entities have been loud supporters of mandatory vaccinations and more government control based on “health concerns.”

And for several years, Bill Gates has been telling us that a pandemic is coming, and in November of 2019, collaborating with the World Economic Forum, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation hosted “Event 201” where they ran a simulation of a coronavirus pandemic.

But the push for the vaccine has even the staunchest vaccine advocates and scientists worried.

Dr Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, worked on development of a vaccine for SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), the coronavirus behind a major 2003 outbreak, and found that some vaccinated animals developed more severe disease compared with unvaccinated animals when they were exposed to the virus.

But the vaccine won’t be available for at least a year, so in the meantime, we’re hearing some bizarre recommendations … like ….

“GET A FLU SHOT!”

We’re hearing the “doctors” on TV and major newspapers (like the New York Times) recommending that you should get a FLU vaccine to protect against Coronavirus.

But a 2017-2018 study published in the prestigious journal “Vaccine” (a peer-reviewed medical journal) revealed that flu vaccines may increase the risk of infection from other respiratory viruses (including coronavirus), which is a phenomenon known as “virus interference.”

According to the study:

Vaccine derived virus interference was significantly associated with coronavirus.”

When we look closer at the study, we find this quote:

Examining non-influenza viruses specifically, the odds of both coronavirus and human metapneumovirus in vaccinated individuals were significantly higher when compared to unvaccinated individuals.

In other words, the flu shot increases your risk of contracting coronavirus by 36%!

But What About Italy?

A recent article in Bloomberg (titled “99% of Those Who Died From Virus Had Other Illness”) illustrates an overlooked variable in the “corona-panic” equation. And this variable would be the status of the immune system in those patients.

The study found the following:

More than 99% of Italy’s coronavirus fatalities were people who already suffered from previous medical conditions, according to a study by the country’s national health authority.”  

Moreover:

The Rome-based institute has examined medical records of about 18% of the country’s coronavirus fatalities, finding that just three victims, or 0.8% of the total, had no previous pathology. Almost half of the victims suffered from at least three prior illnesses and about a fourth had either one or two previous conditions. More than 75% had high blood pressure, about 35% had diabetes and a third suffered from heart disease.”

The Bloomberg article also pointed out that the primary threat is to the elderly (the average age of someone who died was 79.5) and that the fatality rate may have been significantly overblown. Rather than 8%, the fatality rate (for the elderly) may, in fact, be closer to the global average of about 2%.

This new report challenges much of the global reporting on the topic which presents a unilateral narrative that simply being exposed (within six feet) to someone who may have tested positive for the virus is life-threatening, regardless of one’s health status and other precautions one might take, such as supporting one’s immune system.  Elderly people, already taking multiple prescription drugs for chronic diseases, are highly susceptible to opportunistic infections due to their chronic conditions, the adverse effects of pharmaceuticals, and subsequently weakened immune systems.

Below is a table indicating the COVID-19 fatality rate by age.

As is evident, those who are younger than 60 years old have less than 1% chance of death if infected.

What About the PCR Test?

According to David Crowe (a Canadian software and telecommunications engineer with a degree in biology who is an expert in global infections such as SARS, Ebola, and flu), the coronavirus panic is an irrational panic, based on an unproven RNA test called “polymerase chain reaction” (PCR).

In his own words:

The coronavirus test is based on PCR, a manufacturing technique. When used as a test it does not produce a positive/negative result, but simply the number of cycles required to detect genetic material. The division between positive and negative is an arbitrary number of cycles chosen by the testers.

In layman’s terms, Mr. Crowe suggests that since the PCR test looks for RNA, there is no proof that it detects a virus.  Furthermore, there is no proof that the virus causes disease. He asserts that the data is being interpreted to benefit the viral theory, and there is zero concern for false positive results. He concludes that medical papers are propaganda to increase panic.

He continues:

The world is suffering from a massive delusion based on the belief that a test for RNA is a test for a deadly new virus, a virus that has emerged from wild bats in China, supported by the western assumptions. If the virus exists, then it should be possible to purify viral particles. From these particles RNA can be extracted and should match the RNA used in this test. Until this is done it is possible that the RNA comes from another source, which could be the cells of the patient, bacteria, fungi etc. There might be an association with elevated levels of RNA and illness, but that is not proof that the RNA is from a virus. Without purification and characterization of virus particles, it cannot be accepted that an RNA test is proof that a virus is present.

Mr. Crowe mentions “false positives” and there is a shocking new Chinese scientific paper that calculated the false positive rate for asymptomatic patients as … (wait for it) … 80%!!

And here’s a scientific study published less than 2 weeks ago which shows just under 50% false positives!

So, is this really a pandemic, or are people panicking based on a test which is producing anywhere from 50% to 80% false positives?

Medical Martial Law?

In times of crisis, it’s not uncommon for citizens to willingly give up their rights in the name of “safety” and “the greater good.” The coronavirus scare is no exception. Around the world, tens of millions of people have been placed under quarantine.

Since the outbreak of the virus a few months ago, government officials have exercised unprecedented authority to monitor and detain citizens. The effort to control media coverage has reached a fevered pitch.

The efforts to quarantine those suspected of carrying the coronavirus seem to have had little effect on its global transmission. Nevertheless, millions of people in China and around the world have been put on lock-down. These people are confined to their homes, ships, or temporary “quarantine zones” with no due process.

And although you may expect this kind of authoritarian response in communist China, the west is facing similar detention efforts.

In New York City, thousands of people are currently under quarantine. Although New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio claims that most of the quarantines are “voluntary,” many of them aren’t. We saw during the measles “epidemic” last year that Mayor de Blasio has no problem with violating the freedom of American citizens when he tried to force unvaccinated families to receive their shots.

Although New York Governor tried to assure reporters that there are no plans to quarantine New York City amid the coronavirus outbreak, Mayor de Blasio said in an interview on CNN that “We’re absolutely considering that. We’re going to look at all other options, but it could get to that for sure for the whole country.”

San Francisco has already implemented such a quarantine. Officials in six San Francisco Bay Area counties issued a sweeping shelter-in-place mandate Monday affecting nearly 7 million people, ordering residents to avoid any unnecessary travel by any method and only leave their homes for food, medicine and exercise.

“BUT IT’S AN EMERGENCY!”

Today the “coronavirus-panic” gives government fuel and cover for its assaults on freedom and poses a question the government does not want to answer: If liberty can be taken away in times of crisis, then is it really liberty; or is it just a license, via a temporary government permission slip, subject to the whims of politicians in power?

We have far more to fear from “Big Government” tyranny than we do from any virus. Moreover, liberty is natural and personal. You can sacrifice yours, but you cannot sacrifice mine.

The Good News!

There are natural ways to fight off viral infections and keep your immune system healthy, one of which is vitamin C, which is currently being used in China against COVID-19 coronavirus and has been officially recommended by the Shanghai government.

The coronavirus can be dramatically slowed, or stopped, with the immediate widespread use of high doses of vitamin C. Physicians have demonstrated the powerful antiviral action of vitamin C for decades. There has been a lack of media coverage of this effective and successful approach against viruses in general, and coronavirus in particular.

Is vitamin C a “cure” for coronavirus? The reality is that there is no “cure” for coronavirus (or any virus for that matter). We are exposed to literally thousands of ‘harmful’ viruses each and every day, but with a functioning immune system and intake of natural antivirals, we shouldn’t have to worry about any of the viruses … including coronavirus!

That’s why we are taking Liposomal Vitamin C each and every day. Why liposomal? Because it is the only route of administration that’s as “bioavailable” (absorbable) as IV injections, and it’s much cheaper and less invasive.

Want proof that vitamin C may be an answer? Anyone saying that vitamin therapy can stop coronavirus is already being labeled as “promoting false information” and promulgating “fake news.” Even the sharing of verifiable news, and direct quotes from credentialed medical professionals, is being restricted or blocked on social media.

Another supplement we take every day is iodine. Iodine exhibits activity against bacteria, molds, yeasts, protozoa, and many viruses. Interestingly, of all the antiseptic preparations suitable for direct use on humans and animals and upon tissues, only iodine is capable of killing all classes of pathogens (gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi, yeasts, viruses and protozoa).

According to Dr. David Brownstein:

Iodine is essential to not only fighting off an infection it is necessary for proper immune system functioning. There is no bacteria, virus, parasite or fungus that is known to be resistant to iodine.”

One of the main problems with coronavirus is that it creates a “cytokine storm,” which is induced by the activation of NLRP3 inflammasomes.  According to a recent article from Italy, melatonin inhibits the NLRP3 inflammasome, so it may be a truly unique molecule to fight against COVID-19. Simply stated, adequate melatonin levels may reduce the infectiousness of coronavirus.

Also, silver (colloid) has been utilized as a medicine since ancient times to treat scores of ailments, including the bubonic plague. It works by interfering with the enzymes that allow a virus to utilize oxygen thus, in essence, suffocating it so it cannot do damage in the body. Silver nanoparticles have proven to exert antiviral activity against HIV-1, but the mechanism underlying their HIV-inhibitory activity has not been not fully elucidated. In this study, silver nanoparticles are evaluated to elucidate their mode of antiviral action against HIV-1 using a panel of different in vitro assays.

Interestingly, a little over 100 years ago, during the infamous Spanish flu epidemic of 1918-19, it has been estimated that 50 million people died worldwide. In the USA alone, 550,000 people died, which was approximately 10% of the people afflicted with the flu. Homeopathic physicians documented then more than 62,000 patients treated with homeopathy resulting in a mortality of 0.7%. For people who were sick enough to be hospitalized, conventional medicine had a mortality of 30% while with 27,000 documented hospitalized cases, homeopathy was reporting a mortality of 1.05% (Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy 1921; 13:1028-43).

Remember … when it comes to the coronavirus (or any other bacteria or virus for that matter) …

Don’t worry … BE HEALTHY!

Pandemic: Is It Real Science?

 
Jon Rappaport – 3/20/2020

This article is about fake science and the medical professionals who are hypnotized by it.

32 years ago, just after my first book, AIDS INC., was published, I was speaking with a doctor friend, a brilliant man.  He criticized my strategy of showing how NON-VIRUS factors had destroyed the immune systems of “people with AIDS.”

As evidence, he cited a UCLA study which had looked into the possibility that vast overuse of antibiotics was shredding the immune systems of gay men.  “You see,” he said, “the study found that many gay men who had been diagnosed with AIDS didn’t abuse antibiotics.  Therefore, those drugs couldn’t be the cause of AIDS.”

I was shocked.  I was shocked that this doctor had fallen for absolute nonsense.

First of all, I hadn’t said antibiotics were the cause of AIDS.  He was confused at the starting gate.

To boil it down, my argument, in the book, was: for various specific reasons, HIV had never been proved to be the cause of what was being called AIDS.  And—this was the key—“AIDS” was a label that had been placed, like an umbrella, over a whole host of diverse health conditions.  AIDS is not a disease – it is a syndrome (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). It comes from a number of different causes, depending on which group of people you were talking about.

And, in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, ONE OF THOSE CAUSES, IN SOME GAY MEN, was vast overuse of antibiotics.

My doctor friend hadn’t understood this.

WHY NOT?

Here is the punch line.  Through his training, he had been hypnotized into thinking that AIDS was one syndrome with one basic cause.  “It had to be.”  99 percent-plus of all doctors in the world had also been hypnotized in exactly the same way.

One label, one basic condition, one germ.

AIDS couldn’t actually be a whole variety of causes, all of which suppress the immune system.  No, no, no.  That would be heresy.

The hypnosis sets up an either-or situation.  “Show us the one cause of the one condition, or go away.”  And that is called medical science.

Imagine the following: six men in New Jersey suffer from sudden bleeding.  So do eight women in New Guinea.  So do twelve children in Uganda.  A team of virus hunters from the CDC decides that all these occurrences must be linked by a common cause.  Which, of course, will turn out to be a virus.  But they’re wrong.  Dead wrong.  It’s not a virus.

In fact, there is no unifying “it.”  The six men in New Jersey were working in a factory where leaking acid fumes were getting into their lungs and creating hemorrhages.  The eight women in New Guinea were farm workers overcome by highly dangerous pesticides, and they bled.  The children in Uganda had been drinking water directly connected to sewage outlets, and in the sewage there were industrial poisons, and they bled.

This was not one condition.  It did not have one cause.  But too late—the CDC moves in, declares it’s all a virus, and the name of the condition is X-32f54d.  Journal articles are rushed into print.  Public health officials warn that X-32f54d could spread…

You get the idea.  The hypnosis works.  It has nothing to do with science.

In the current “epidemic,” we have the same old story.  IT IS NOT ONE CONDITION.  IT DOES NOT HAVE ONE CAUSE.

What are some of the causes which can induce the general flu-like and pneumonia-like symptoms being labeled “coronavirus?”  

Ordinary flu.  Pneumonia from different bacteria, fungi, toxic air.  TB.  Common colds.  Allergies.  In some places, perhaps the rollout of 5G technology.  Toxic vaccination campaigns.  Toxic medical drugs.  Highly toxic and destructive antiviral drugs, given to people who are called “COV cases.”  Immobilization, long-term, in nursing homes for the elderly.  Pesticides causing lung problems.  Industrial poisons causing lung problems.  People who have slight or serious congestion and are afraid they might “have the virus” and show up at hospitals.  Corporate chemical dumping.  Expired and unrefrigerated medical drugs shipped to the Third World.  (The mere detection of elevated body temperature during airport screenings.  People who had contact with other people who have been called “coronavirus cases.”  Overeager and work-harried doctors diagnosing “suspected cases.”)

And so on and so forth.

NOT one condition with one cause.

NOT one condition.

NOT one cause.

Therefore, the “spread and containment of the one virus” is wrongheaded.

“But…but…suppose the patient tests positive for the coronavirus?  Isn’t that some kind of proof?  Doesn’t a positive test connect all these people with different conditions, under one banner?”

No.  I have covered this in other articles.  Even assuming that researchers actually discovered COV—the diagnostic test, at best, might indicate the patient has a tiny, tiny amount of COV in his body.  But, in order to cause illness, he would need to have millions and millions of virus actively replicating in his body.  The test has never been proved to be capable of detecting that.

And on top of all this, the overwhelming percentage of “COV cases” in the world have been diagnosed WITHOUT THE DIAGNOSTIC TEST for the virus.

Therefore, what we’re left with are many people, with all sorts of different conditions, caused by many different factors—irrationally collected together under one label.

“But…but…what about all these people all over the world suddenly getting sick and dying?”

That’s not a true picture.  In many, many cases, these are people who have been getting sick and dying in the same ways people been getting sick for a long, long time, down through history  For example, TB and pneumonia.  In other cases, the causes could/would be new.  For instance, new pollution, a recent vaccination campaign(s), the new rollout of 5G, the accelerated use of antiviral drugs.  The other new factors are the re-labeling of all these people with a novel term: “COV”;

And the press coverage, and the pronouncements of governments.

And then the lockdowns.  And the economic warfare against the people.

Is The Panic Worse Than The Virus?

 
Tyler Durden – 3/20/2020

The Great Panic of 2020 is already one for the history books.  Yet the damage has only just begun.  We suspect the stock market crash, economic destruction, and forfeiture of freedoms will persist long after the coronavirus hobgoblin has been put to bed.

With respect to the stock market, the modus operandi of the last 11 years is being stood on its head.  Here’s why…

If you recall the Wall Street crash of 1929 – 30, the U.S. stock market had commenced a multi-year swan dive in autumn of that year.  About that time, the economy also commenced a decade long Great Depression.

Now, given the rapid and relentless stock market carnage over the last month, and the prospect of a lengthy depression, a closer look is in order. What are the comparisons with today?

From September 3, 1929 to November 13, 1929, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) lost 48.9 percent.  Then, as rarely noted, it rallied through April 17, 1930.  This had the adverse effect of luring the crowd back into the stock market just in time for the next massacre.

The 1929 through 1932 bear market, as noted by Pater Tenebrarum, was like a rubber ball bouncing down stairs.  With each bounce, even the most savvy of investors were given another chance to lose their money.  Taken in sequence, the repeated bounces provided many opportunities to lose money over and over again.

In the end, the bounce up between November 13, 1929 and April 30, 1930 turned out to be the ultimate sucker’s rally.  The DJIA subsequently crashed 89.2 percent from its initial peak, along with the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of an entire generation.

(The chart below compares the great crash with today’s crash)

Such a colossal collapse could never, ever happen again, right?

Well, the economy is being fundamentally pummeled by “coronavirus containment.”  Long term damage will be sustained.  The type of damage that takes a decade – or more – to recover from.  Easy loans won’t fix it.  But, nonetheless, there’s no shortage of solutions being offered to save us from ourselves.

Bars, restaurants, gyms, schools, and many employers are shutting down.  San Francisco has ordered all residents to “shelter in place.”

The former Mayor of San Francisco, and now California Governor, Gavin Newsom, has ordered all residents to stay at home until further notice.

These solutions are disastrous for the economy.  Cash flows are running dry.  Credit markets are freezing up.  People are losing their jobs.  Full mobilization is needed, we’re told, in the war on coronavirus.

On the fiscal side, the Treasury Department’s angling with Congress to send out $1,000 checks – possibly, two of them – to struggling Americans.  Mitt Romney, a man of discretion, is onboard with $1,000 checks.  Chuck Schumer says it won’t be enough.  Cory Booker wants to send out $4,500 checks.

But why stop there?  Why not send out $45,000 checks?  If a little helicopter money’s good, isn’t more always better?

Is the Panic Worse than the Virus?

If only the world was as simple as potato-brain Booker believes.

Maybe a systematic hunkering is needed to win the war on coronavirus and save the economy.  Or is it?

For perspective, we’ll draw from words first scribbled in 1841 by Charles MacKay.  As you can see, these kind of panics are nothing new to our day. Here’s a brief excerpt from MacKay’s timeless classic, Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

“During seasons of great pestilence men have often believed the prophecies of crazed fanatics, that the end of the world was come.  Credulity is always greatest in times of calamity.  Prophecies of all sorts are rife on such occasions, and are readily believed, whether for good or evil.

“During the great plague, which ravaged all Europe, between the years 1345 and 1350, it was generally considered that the end of the world was at hand.  Pretended prophets were to be found in all the principal cities of Germany, France, and Italy, predicting that within ten years the trump of the Archangel would sound, and the Saviour appear in the clouds to call the earth to judgment.”

As far as we can tell, the coronavirus has attracted prophets of all stripes like bees to honey.  Mass coronavirus hysteria has led to public and pretend prophetic histrionics.

According to Bill Ackman, “hell is coming.”

Maybe so.  Or maybe the mass panic has been overblown.  By this, the panic is worse than the virus.

What we do know, is the spring equinox has arrived…marking the earliest coming of spring in 124 years.  After the last several weeks of winter, we’ll take it.

Iran ready to provide aid to US in fight against coronavirus

Earlier in response to Donald Trump’s offer of help in mitigating the disease, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the US can assist by withdrawing sanctions

TEHRAN – 3/19/2020 – Tehran is ready to provide assistance to the US to control the coronavirus spread, Iranian Deputy Health Minister Alireza Raisi announced Thursday.

“Iran is ready to help the US to control the coronavirus,” he said, according to the IRNA news agency. He added that if “the US wants to help Iran, then they should remove sanctions and compensate caused losses.” According to the deputy minister, “US healthcare system is not ready to curb the coronavirus [threat].”

On March 12, US President Donald Trump repeatedly offered assistance to Iran in curbing the coronavirus spread. In response, Iranian politicians, including President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, said that the US can assist by withdrawing sanctions.

Iranian authorities repeat that US restrictions against Tehran complicate the country’s fight against the disease.

On March 16, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Geng Shuang claimed that unilateral sanctions of the US against Iran amid coronavirus spread would only exacerbate the situation.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the US deliberately takes actions that thwart Iran’s fight against the infection.

The coronavirus outbreak was registered in central China in late December 2019. On March 11, the World Health Organization declared it a pandemic. COVID-19 infection cases have been recorded in more than 170 countries. According to the latest data, over 220,000 people have contracted the virus; about 8,900 of them have died – primarily elderly patients suffering from health complications and immune deficiencies predating the coronavirus.

A total of 147 coronavirus cases have been confirmed in Russia so far, one person died.

Most coronavirus-infected patients recover completely. People with chronic diseases of the lungs, asthma and others should certainly take precautions to avoid aggravations, the director of the National Medical Research Center for Preventive Medicine said.

Corona Bologna Italy: The Truth begins to leak out

ITALY LOCKED DOWN – WHY?
Jon Rappaport – 3/17/2020

The government of Italy, as everyone knows, has locked down the whole country of 60 million people.  So how many Italians have died from COV?  Even by the standards of the useless and misleading diagnostic tests?

Ready?

As far as the Italian Higher Institute of Health knows, at this point:

Maybe two.

Maybe.

Try to wrap your mind around that.

Good luck.

Seems the president of the Italian Higher Institute has some smarts.  He understands that people who have serious health conditions already, other than the COV, can and do die from those other conditions, regardless of the fact that they’ve tested positive (on useless tests) for COV.  He gets it.  But if he keeps shooting his mouth off, he might find himself working as a weed puller in a forest.  Or he might suddenly be diagnosed with the virus and find himself in isolation.

Grit your teeth and plow through the following quote from Rome, 13 March 2020, Agenzia Nova:

 

Coronavirus: ISS [Italian National Institute of Health]

In Italy there are only two deaths ascertained so far due to Covid-19

“There may be only two people who died from coronavirus in Italy, who were not presenting other serious pathologies. This is what emerges from the medical records examined so far by the Higher Institute of Health, according to what was reported by the President of the Institute [Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS), Italian National Institute of Health], Silvio Brusaferro, during the press conference held today at the Civil Protection in Rome. ‘Positive deceased patients have an average of over 80 years – 80.3 to be exact…The majority of these people are carriers of chronic diseases. Only two of them were not presently carriers of [other non-COV] diseases’, but even in these two cases, the examination of the files is not concluded and therefore, causes of death different from Covid-19 could emerge. The president of the ISS has specified that ‘little more than a hundred medical records’ have so far come from hospitals throughout Italy.”

“…At present, in fact, the authorities are unable to distinguish those who died from the virus, from those who, on the other hand, are communicated daily to the public, but who were mostly carriers of other serious diseases and who, therefore, would not have died from Covid-19 alone. In response to a question from ‘Agenzia Nova’, in fact, Brusaferro was unable to indicate the exact number of coronavirus deaths. However, the professor clarified that, according to the data analyzed, the vast majority of the victims ‘had serious [non-COV] pathologies and in some cases the onset of an infection of the respiratory tract can lead more easily to death.’ To clarify this point, and provide real data, ‘as we acquire the folders we will go further. However, the populations most at risk are fragile carriers of multiple diseases’.”

Translation into non-medical language: the people dying in Italy have other very serious traditional diseases that have nothing to do with COV, and it’s obvious they could have died, and probably did die, from those other diseases.  Nevertheless, we’re locking down the whole country.

So, for those people straining to find a reason for the “devastation” overtaking Italy—it’s karma for ancient Rome trying to conquer half the known world; it’s the ghost of Martin Luther obtaining revenge against the Vatican; it’s a bioweapon with the power to cut down millions of people overnight; it’s a virus that came in with a small meteor and crashed outside Milan; it’s Chinese revenge against Marco Polo for stealing the concept of noodles—

Take a break, relax, have a plate of pasta.

For those people who believe Brusaferro, head of the Italian Institute, is lying with his facts and figures, stop and think it through.  If it wasn’t true would he announce such devastating news that essentially contradicts everything the Italian government is doing with its lockdowns and quarantines of the whole country?  It would be like the director of the Centers for Disease Control announced, “There are a total of nine deaths in the US we think might have been caused by COV, and even there we’re not sure, because you see, these nine were elderly people who, long before the COV emerged, could barely get out of bed.  These nine had extremely serious lung disease not caused by COV … but anyway, don’t go outside, work from home, don’t touch another human being, watch our website for bargain deals on toilet paper, and oh yes, don’t forget to get your regular flu shot if you can slip into a hazmat suit and drive to your nearest pharmacy, where injection clerks are waiting…”

No. He’s telling the truth.

The Coronavirus Hoax

Ron Paul – 3/17/2020

Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security.

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power now demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans. (fewer than the regular flu deaths)

Declaring a pandemic emergency on Friday, President Trump now claims the power to quarantine individuals suspected of being infected by the virus and, as Politico writes, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease.” He can even call out the military to cordon off a US city or state.

State and local authoritarians love panic as well. The mayor of Champaign, Illinois, signed an executive order declaring the power to ban the sale of guns and alcohol and cut off gas, water, or electricity to any citizen. The governor of Ohio just essentially closed his entire state.

The chief fearmonger of the Trump Administration is without a doubt Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health. Fauci is all over the media, serving up outright falsehoods to stir up even more panic. He testified to Congress that the death rate for the coronavirus is ten times that of the seasonal flu – an outright lie. He has pushed for closing the entire country down for 14 days.

Over what? A virus that has thus far killed just over 5,000 worldwide and less than 100 in the United States? By contrast, tuberculosis, an old disease not much discussed these days, killed nearly 1.6 million people in 2017. Where’s the panic over this? Doctors kill more than that.

If anything, what Fauci and the other fearmongers are demanding will likely make the disease worse. The martial law they dream about will leave people hunkered down inside their homes instead of going outdoors or to the beach where the sunshine and fresh air would help boost immunity. The panic produced by these fearmongers is likely helping spread the disease, as massive crowds rush into Walmart and Costco for that last roll of toilet paper.

The madness over the coronavirus is not limited to politicians and the medical community. The head of the neoconservative Atlantic Council wrote an editorial this week urging NATO to pass an Article 5 declaration of war against the COVID-19 virus! Are they going to send in tanks and drones to put everyone under martial law and house arrest?

People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus “pandemic” could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic.

That is not to say the disease is harmless. No disease is. Without question people will die from coronavirus. Those in vulnerable categories should take precautions to limit their risk of exposure. In fact, they should already be doing this every year as a matter of habit. But we have seen this movie before. Government over-hypes a threat as an excuse to grab more of our freedoms. When the “threat” is over, however, they never give us our freedoms back.
