For alert minds: the art of the covert narrative

by Jon Rappoport

September 30, 2014

“Build it and they will come. Build a false narrative and people will come in droves.” —The Underground, Jon Rappoport

When a researcher or an investigator suspects he is looking at an artificial narrative, a storyline that is floated to achieve a hidden agenda, he has to deal with one overriding question:

How deep does he want to go, in order to root out the potential lies and false material?

Into how basic a level of the narrative does he want to cut, to see what leaks out?

Case in point: the current Ebola storyline.

Many lies can be found there. I have written about them (archived here). But one statement in the Ebola narrative is almost universally accepted.

It is accepted in the case of Ebola, Swine Flu, Bird Flu, SARS, and West Nile.

Most recently, the story began this way: “In three West African countries, there has been an outbreak of Ebola.”

This is the crux: “the Ebola virus is killing people.”

The audience automatically accepts that premise.

Whatever else they may or may not accept, they buy that premise.

So many consequences, official and unofficial, can flow from the basic premise, you would think alert people would probe it—but they don’t.

They go for it hook, line, and sinker.

They don’t know whether it’s true, they don’t have any idea about the reality of the assumption, but they grab it and cling to it.

Then they say, “Since we know the Ebola virus is killing lots and lots of people, what else can we infer?”

Effective narratives work that way: slip in a basic idea, watch people buy it and build on it.

What about the kids in Denver now being reported with “muscle weakness?” Must be a virus, the experts say; just not sure which one. Really? Then how do they know it’s a virus at all? Or any germ?

Why is “the mystery illness that’s sweeping the US” caused by a germ? How do we know it’s one illness? The general symptoms that are always reported in these “outbreaks” could be caused by 6 different germs—or none at all.

I remember when Jim West, a fine independent researcher, correlated a so-called outbreak of West Nile with centers of spewing industrial pollution in the US.

Back in 2003, I discovered that at least a quarter of the cases of SARS in Hong Kong, one of the “epicenter” cities, were coming from the Amoy Gardens apartment complex, where feces were leaking into the internal water supply—a plumbing problem.

And “Swine Flu” was an environmental/corporate problem in La Gloria, Mexico, on a large commercial pig farm, where lagoons of pig feces were baking and festering in the sun—and then, on top of that, outside contractors were called in to spray the area with toxic chemicals, which made the local workers even sicker.

In three or four articles about Ebola, I’ve listed all the endemic, chronic, and long-term horrific conditions in West Africa which have been killing people—and none of those conditions is related to Ebola.

I’ve demonstrated, on many occasions, how the most frequently used tests for diagnosing viral diseases—the antibody and PCR tests—are totally unreliable, deceptive, and useless.

I’ve explained that when it comes to germs, the factor that determines health or illness in a human being is the strength of his immune system—not the germ itself.

Ever since 1988, I’ve been writing about the toxic effects of vaccines, which of course involve direct injection of germs, toxic metals, and chemicals into the body, bypassing channels of immune defense—and causing illness.

In West Africa, as elsewhere, vaccination campaigns have been standard operating procedure for decades.

But no. It has to be Ebola, Ebola, Ebola. That’s the narrative and people buy it.

Just as it has to be HIV, HIV, HIV in Africa. In that case, not only are the widely used diagnostic tests useless, but there are quite serious questions about whether HIV exists at all.

That’s right. At, you can read a long interview, by journalist Christine Johnson, with biophysicist Eleni Papadopulos Eleopulos of The Perth Group: “Does HIV exist?”

It tackles somewhat complex technical questions and makes them understandable for the lay reader. It is one of the best interviews on virus hunting I have ever read—a remarkable achievement.

power outside the matrix

Selling the “the germ and only the germ causes disease” narrative is one of the great propaganda triumphs of modern medicine. Well, if you had a few billion dollars, an army of compliant media journalists, tens of thousands of doctors, and the federal government at your beck and call, you could sell the idea that tomatoes are the preferred fuel for space travel.

In these narratives, always go back to the beginning. Root out the most basic assumptions, and investigate them.

You’ll be surprised.

And when it comes to medical narratives, remember that horror stories about germs are absolutely necessary in order to sell drugs and vaccines.

Some of the major propagandists on the planet ply their trade in that arena.

They succeed because they maintain that the “tiny terrorists” are invisible—except to the experts.

It would be comparable to asserting that data interception and spying are such technical matters that only the NSA and other official professionals are able to understand it—and therefore the public should never question the particulars.

There are untold thousands of capable people taking apart the NSA narrative these days—but how many are taking apart the statement, “The germ XYZ caused the outbreak?”

    We should not lie,
    ’cause when we lie, we strip ourselves out of reality,
    we should not steal,
    ’cause when we steal, we strip ourselves out of creativity,

    We, the individual, as you brillantly advocate for, Jon, must give the example, on a small scale maybe but with a profound meaning, for us and others together. This is our strength and it is more efficient than what we may think about it. This is the first step toward the comeback to a world of sanity, of meaning, of beauty … of life, as opposed to the abyss of death & darkness we’re unfortunately used to thanks to the up side down evil that the Powers That Be are infusing into every aspect of what we believe is reality.

    • Avi says:

      The main war between us and ‘them’ is a war of meaning, of what direction we give to our lives. It is a war of minds and if we want to, we just can’t lose it because we’re on the bright side, on the future side, on the life side, and we will prevail, no matter what they try … The sooner the better !!

      • Miggy says:

        Yes, you hit it. The other thing is fear. Evil prays on fear and can be abolished completely without fear.

        John 3:16

  2. The govt and everyone else is using fear to sell their agenda and that is what makes me weak and tired, put it on my tombstone ‘mental terrorism did her in”

    • Miggy says:

      I posted my comment before reading this and you are correct. Do not let fear consume you. There is a God and He sees everything. Life is a vapor, even for evil.

      John 3:16

    • BJ says: might be a help to you Barbara. Truth and identification can do wonders for the weariness of deflecting the constant lies. That and of course faith. There is a proverb which says “whoever causes the righteous to go astray in an evil way, shall fall himself into his own pit”.
      Whose doing who in? Lol
      Peace –

    In sickness & in health

    In sickness and in health

    Please keep off my grass:
    My schoolboy understanding of a Virus is a small unseen tadpole-like thingy with a long tail, wriggling around inside of me when I am sick, proliferating uncontrollably.

    Today, of course, this is false but it is that, among many other falsities, which I was taught at school.

    Louis Pasteur gave us the ‘theory’ of the Virus; it has never been updated or questioned since his time.
    So here’s an update and a questioning.

    A Virus has never been observed to move as it has no motor function and therefore doesn’t have the tools to move independently around my fluid system.
    It has no respiratory apparatus.
    It has no brain.
    It therefore has no metabolism and following along logically, if this is the case, it cannot reproduce or multiply.

    So there!

    I will swear to whoever I need to swear to that I am getting this information from well recognized medical texts and I am not sucking it out of my thumb.
    Guyton’s Medical Textbook acknowledges that Viruses have no reproductive system, no locomotion, no metabolism and cannot be reproduced as live entities in vitro*1.
    A Virus does not possess any of the characteristics of a biological, living thing and further it has never, and I repeat never, been observed ‘alive’.
    The notion that a Virus lies in wait or has an incubation period is therefore patently ridiculous, absurd and corrupt science.

    It does not invade the body, as it already exists within the body and can’t jump from one species to another, as we are informed that Avian flu has.

    Live Virus
    The term ‘live Virus’ means only those created from living tissue cultures in vitro.
    ‘Live Virus’ in medical terminology does not mean that the Virus is actually alive, as I believe we have been led-up-the-garden-path to accept.

    They are not in themselves ‘alive’, except being molecules of DNA and protein.
    If they have no life then the words ‘dead’ Virus’ cannot be an applicable phrase but it is used fluidly by the medical profession.
    Even though some laboratory tissue cultures are kept alive, there is a massive cell turnover in the process and it is from these dying cells that ‘Viruses’ are obtained.

    Videos or photo’s showing a Virus multiplying are fraudulent.
    That which is most often shown is actually an ordinary physiological process of phagocytosis*2, which occurs countless times, daily within the body.

    If they have these accepted un-characteristic characteristics, how do they cause so much grief and discomfort that we spend lots of money at the Doctor and Chemists trying to kill them?

    “Doctors are ‘men’ who pour drugs of which they know little, to cure diseases of which they know less, into human beings of whom they know nothing.”

    Well, the first part of the answer is that we have been carefully and I add, calculatedly educated (conditioned) to believe that an anti-viral pill or inoculation (jab) is the way to kill the Virus and restore health, in order for some cartel to make obscene sums of money.
    The second part of the answer is that they are perhaps not the cause of sickness but they are present in abundance when we are sick and that they are a necessary and valid production by our body as scavengers of the actual toxins that are making us sick?
    In other words Viruses are friendly agents, mopping up toxins and returning the body back to health, at which point they are metabolised back into the body and rendered inert.

    If I understand the ‘Medical texts’ then I propose that the idea of a Virus ‘lying in wait’ is absurd. An ‘Incubation period’, is an outright lie and ‘Mutation’ is just not possible.
    It is the abundance of the Viruses that, when we are sick, that motivated ‘Science’, at face value, to accept that Viruses are the cause of sickness without any further investigation whatsoever. In more succinct terms, it is pure unadulterated dogma, a religion and is taught in Universities around the Western world as being the truth, but it isn’t the truth. It would seem!


    Prior to the invention of the Electron microscope the only means that Medical Science had of detecting a Virus was by ‘tests’ which detect only anti-bodies not the Virus itself, but anti-bodies being present would suggest that the metabolism has successfully overcome the Virus and therefore the dis-ease is in the process of healing, at least in my world this is so.

    The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the disease. ~Voltaire

    It should therefore be of interest that all of the current over- the-counter tests available do not detect a Virus, actually, but only test for the Virus after the Virus has successfully been, or is being overcome by the metabolism, and has produced detectable anti-bodies.

    Damn strange I say! I think that they, whoever ‘they’ are, their logic is convoluted and quite frankly corrupt, for a malevolent purpose.
    I don’t know, just asking.

    Now you see me, now you don’t
    It has just occurred to me that as a Virus can only been seen through an electron microscope. I would like to ask the burning question, burning questions got me a good ‘switching’ many times at school:
    For how many years has the commercial ‘Electron Microscope’ been available, compared to the Virus theory?
    Before the advent of the commercial ‘Electron Microscope’, Viruses must have been but a notion and not a well developed theory and could not have been a scientifically established fact.
    We have not lost faith, but we have transferred it from God to the medical profession.”
    ― George Bernard Shaw
    If Viruses were confirmed as a ‘fact’ only after the ‘Electron Microscope’ was invented and in general use about the mid 1940’s. it stands to logical reason, at least my reason, that post the invention, if we can’t see a Virus then we had better, jolly well, invent them, otherwise we are going to look quite stupid after having told the world that it is Virus’s that make us sick and we have the pill to kill them.

    If I can take a plant tincture and a naturally occurring earth element in combination and within 24 hours the tickle in the throat, representing the onset of a Cold then it can’t be a Virus.
    Can it?

    Ditto with a Cold Sore on my lip and within 24 hours it has radically receded, then it also can’t be a Virus. Can it?

    “It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the authorities are wrong”

    If you were a medical scientist doing some research on Viruses, would you go to the top dogs in the medical authorities and tell them that you have discovered a massive fraud that makes disgustingly absurd amounts of boodle?
    No chance.
    You would be laughed at, castigated, derided and then find yourself out of work
    No, you would not ‘fess up’ but I know I would, but then I am the silly sod that would loose his job, his fab’ salary, his pension and be struck off their prissy list and find myself unemployable, but then that is me.

    Why would the establishment want to press-gang me into believing this most elegant Virus theory?
    My answer to this question moves me to ask questions of other well-established and accepted ‘theories’ of Science.
    I believe that the medical establishment, along with the pharmaceutical companies and medical aid society’ are one huge machine which has battled for our minds and money. They won the war and we are enslaved.

    [Medicine is] “a collection of uncertain prescriptions the results of which, taken collectively, are more fatal than useful to mankind.”
    ~Napoleon Bonaparte

    Which pill must I take the Red or the Blue?
    I take neither, preferring my own council but also I don’t get sick, well not yet.

    I believe in the innate intelligence and power of Nature and I grow my own plant based medicines from whence all allopathic medications are crudely extracted in the first place.
    As an example of this, Aspirin is nothing more that Weeping Willow tree bark.*3, people world wide pay many millions per annum for a slither of tree bark. I have tears in my eyes of regret that I didn’t come up with this and made myself some exciting billions.

    “I believe in God only I spell it Nature”
    ~Frank Lloyd Wright.

    I say it is dangerous to extract only the active ingredient as Allopathic medication does disregarding other possible synergistic components of which may well be necessary for the magic of plants to work.
    The reason that this is done? To enable patent protection of the pill (read, Money) because plants cannot be patented, well at least not until very recently, G.M.O.!

    “A man is eminent as long as he is orthodox. When he begins to think for himself he become a crank”
    ~ Dr. Walter Hadwen, M.D. (1925)

    May be all that I have written here is not reality and I am deluded, as we are all open to self delusion, at times, but those that promote something to kill a Virus which costs you money are not deluded, they know the truth.

    I have nothing to gain from you by my innocent questioning of their truth, therefore my intentions are not based upon greed and they are, above all, honourable.

    A decoction is made by soaking 3 teaspoons (15ml) of the bark in a cup of cold water for 2 – 5 hours. Then bring to the boil. Strain and let it cool. Take a mouth full 3 times per day or 4 if you have a small mouth unlike me I have a big mouth (sorry I have a lithp). The bark can be dried, powdered and stored in an airtight container.


    Can anyone explain to me the precise mechanics of a spore transitioning ( catalyze) to a bacterium? No, I didn’t think so.

    Hi Jon, another impressive article. Just wondered about the quote at the top of the article where you cite yourself from ‘The underground’. you’ve quoted from this before, just curious about what it is.

  6. mary says:

    Barbara I understand ..its difficult to stay informed, as it causes despair. when I get “despaired” I remind myself that this is a matrix and concentrate on the walls coming down and a better timeline for us.. that’s all we can do…

  7. mary says:

    also thank you Jon, we have to stay informed and I appreciate your articles..

  8. Jon, would you consider adding A ‘Google’ icon to share your posts?

  9. FP says:

    “Funny” how TPTB will play UP their FALSE narratives (such as Ebola) via their Alphabet Agencies & Presstitutes; yet they play DOWN (deny) their REAL killing machinations (such as GMO, & Pulsing Microwave Radiation via BPL — Broadband Over Power Lines — which not only creates massive radiation leakage from power lines, but also turns your naked, unshielded wall-wiring into a giant enclosing receiving antenna, destroying the CNS & immune systems of occupants, humans & animals alike! < The real, silent killing fields of today, right in our own homes & offices!)

    It's like the site has said for decades: "Truth is in the Opposite Direction of the Public Rhetoric."

    • Rastafari says:

      FP, Do you have any links to share with more info about pulsing microwave radiation destroying the CNS?

      Thank you.

      Great article, jon.

  10. Jon, been reading your blog for a while. I enjoy all the stuff about creativity and imagination. I just started my own blog. I want to do more articles than blogs and hopefully I get to the point where I bang out as much good ones as you do, but I’d love if you’d take a look at it.

    I’m from the US and have been in Scotland since the beginning of September, so naturally I wrote my take on the recent Scottish Referendum…hope you find the time to take a look…
