What happens when only 16% of flu patients have the flu?

Here is how serious propaganda works: Over a a long period of time, you build up a gigantic lie. You keep reinforcing it.

You have major money behind you, as well as institutions of government, and corporations. You forge that lie, and you keep repeating it over and over.

Finally, and this is the payoff, you reach a point where a refutation of the lie would seem, to most people, like a piece of incomprehensible insanity, like gibberish.

Therefore, the refutation of the lie would tend to be invisible. It would sink like a small stone, leaving no trace.

After writing about fake vaccine science since 1988, I thought I’d seen it all:

Wild falsehoods about vaccines creating immunity; suppressed information about toxic ingredients in the shots and their devastating health effects; the absence of proper controlled studies proving vaccines are safe and effective.

But Peter Doshi, PhD, writing in the online BMJ (British Medical Journal), reveals a new monstrosity. It’s all based on the revelation that most “flu” is not the flu.

Follow this closely. If you blink, you might miss it.

You see, as Doshi states, every year, hundreds of thousands of 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 have no flu virus in their bodies.


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

The vaccine isn’t designed to prevent fake flu, unless pigs can fly.

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

…few people realize that 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…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 flus, 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 of the stick here. They’re conning your socks off.

A patient walks into a doctor’s office. He’s sick. He’s coughing. He has a fever. His muscles ache. The doctor says, “You have the flu. Did you get your flu shot this year?”

No,” the patient says.

The doctor gives him a stern look. “Well, you should have. See? You’re sick now. The vaccine would have prevented that.”


Again, even by conventional standards, the odds are very high the vaccine would have made no difference at all. Because the odds are very high this patient doesn’t have an influenza virus.

Overwhelmingly, doctors diagnose the flu with a casual eyeball glance. The patient has a familiar cluster of symptoms? It’s flu season? Okay, it’s the flu. Period.

With an ongoing blizzard of psyop-marketing, people accept “flu” and react emotionally to the propaganda about it.

In 2009, as the heralded Level 6 global pandemic, Swine Flu, was proving to be a bust and a trickle, Sharyl Attkisson (CBS News) discovered that the CDC had stopped counting the number of Swine Flu cases in America.

The CDC had stopped counting, because their tests on diagnosed flu patients showed so many who didn’t have the flu virus, who didn’t have the flu at all.

Atkisson’s reporting was explosive. It was threatening to expose the whole flu psyop. What would happen if it became common knowledge that most people diagnosed with the flu don’t have the flu? What would happened to the campaigns to get people to take flu vaccines?

Attkisson was muzzled. And the CDC doubled down and suddenly claimed there were undoubtedly TEN MILLION cases of Swine Flu in the US. This, after only several thousand cases had been reported.

This is on the order of saying a dry creek-bed in the woods is actually the Mississippi River.

Twisting words and numbers and painting false pictures is the CDC’s job.

Do you have an advanced degree, and are you a liar and a criminal? The CDC needs you.

    Jon – did you ever give thought to compiling all of your blog posts in some sort of e-book format available for purchase? I find your writings to be some of the best out there, but like most blogs, once you read the posts, to retrieve the same say weeks or months later is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

    I’d encourage you to look into this, as I think many would be interested. You can put me on the pre-order list.

    I guess that pretty much explains the “dead-mind” acceptance of other “great lies”. Darwin’s “laws’ of evolution, Einstein’s famous E=MC squared, (plagiarized), U.S. exceptionalism, (ROFL), WMD’s, Al Qaeda, not Mossad, did 9/11, Central Banks are benevolent, the “holocaust” DID happen, the Ukrainian Holodomor did NOT, and the Russian “revolution” was a Russian Revolution not a Jacob Schiff, Kuhn/Loeb central bank backed mass murder.
    My favorite is the United States is a Christian nation blessed by God. Now THAT’S “chutzpah!

    I remember this episode quite vividly when it happened. I couldn’t believe that the press was getting away with it. Then to top it off the number of miscarriages that women suffered because they were told to get this vaccine. It was horrible reading the terrible stories of the hundreds of deaths that vaccine caused. absolutely terrible!

  5. greencentre says:

    And it’s not just flu they overdiagnose. We recently had a headline grabbing MEASLES outbreak in Swansea, Wales, UK. Doctors were diagnosing many hundreds to be suffering the syndrome and a huge, nationwide MMR campaign launched on the back of it. When samples mandatorily taken were analysed in the public health labs a very low percentage turned out to be measles, certainly less than ten per cent.

    “The fact is that, though 446 measles notifications were made between 1 January and 31 March of this year, those were merely reports. The reality is that only 26 cases were actually confirmed!”

    Bottom Line: there is no money to be made by big pharma if you find cures to everything.

    Not to mention, they (TPTB) want to poison us!

    It’s like the HPV-vaccines — Gardasil and Cervarix. They do NOT prevent cancer. They might, just might prevent cancer from the strains 16 and 18, but there is NO proof. There are at least 14, from the 127 in total, other HPV-strains who are carginomic.

  9. pat says:

    I’ve been following your reports, Jon, and agree wholeheartedly about vaccines. However, I’m curious. If only 16% actually had the flu — what did the others have ?
    I read somewhere that pneumonia and flu cases were lumped together by the CDC in order to inflate the number of flu cases (to sell the vaccine). When looked at honestly, the number of deaths from pneumonia in this country each year was astounding while flu deaths were minimal. Is this more “on track” or am I dreaming ?

  10. Paul Maser says:

    What were the other 84% of the cases caused by?

    I was fortunate. And I remember. When I was 18, I had a genuine case of the flu, but the diagnosis was not so readily available. It was 1958. A doctor did diagnose me with flu, though, and it was so horrible that I easily remember it today, over fifty years later. I remember it as the worse kind of respiratory/cold-type symptoms I ever had in life. And it only happened to me once. When one has had the flu, one never forgets. It’s just that bad. That was in ’58 and I did have a lot of snot-infested chest/cold symptoms into and through the 60’s and early 70’s, until I was about 38 or so, but I knew they could not be the flu, as I ever after recalled how horrible it was. And then all my sporadic respiratory problems stopped. I know this will be hard to believe, but I have not had a cold in longer than I can recall. It seems like it may have been in the mid to late 1970’s. They simply stopped occurring after the 70’s. To be fair, and informative, I did begin taking massive doses of various vitamins during that time (such as ascorbic acid), and still do so.

    It is only surmise at this point, but I believe that what happened to me in 1958, when the genuine flu befell me, my immune system somehow went to work on the situation and phased me out of the whole class of respiratory problems that are symptomatic of such problems as colds and the occasional flu’s in the human animal. My vitamin/exercise regimen could be considered part and parcel of my immune response (of the mental variety) to the flu in 1958. Indeed, I don’t get sick at all any longer. I do have my “creakings” that occur due probably to being in my early 70’s, and I had to stop lifting objects as heavy as the rear end, one-wheel side of my Ford Ranger, off the ground, when I was 69 or so, as I began to feel vagrant, uncomfortable muscular pains here and there for a while afterward, but I remain disgustingly healthy (which means “not sick,”) while everybody close to me (which are not many any longer) are periodically sick from all the normal human ailments. It is altogether possible that my superb health since the 1970’s is due to having suffered the flu back in 1958, in which my general immune system may have been beefed up and even impelled me into the world of vitaminology. I never had the flu again, after all (I’d know if I had, right?) while I witnessed thousands of other humans suffering over the years.
