I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but…history matters.
When you see a new story on the horizon, and it looks a lot like an old story you know was a hoax, you have to dig up that history and report it.
Yes, many people hate history. It tends to stretch their attention spans, which are rooted in the present, where the action is: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram—little crumbs of NOW and NOW and NOW.
Oh well. Here we go, back into the Dark Age of 2009, an ancient time.
What was happening then? There was a grim pandemic spreading like an angry cloud over the world, threatening to kill millions of people. Sound familiar? Sound like China right now? It was called Swine Flu.
Just like now, the 2009 announcements were coming out of the World Health Organization and the CDC; the germ was a virus; it was spreading; travelers were carrying it; people were being tested at airports; the source of the germ seemed to be animal-to-human transmission; deaths were being reported; fear was rising. People were saying, THIS IS THE BIG ONE. Other people were saying: THIS IS A WEAPONIZED VIRUS ALTERED IN A BIOWAR LAB. Just like now.
So here is what I wrote about the 2009 Swine Flu pandemic in its aftermath—I hope you can shake off the idea that the following facts are IMPOSSIBLE, “THE AUTHORITIES WOULD NEVER HAVE DONE THAT,” IT COULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED. The following facts are possible and true, the authorities did do that, and it did happen:
In the late summer of 2009, the Swine Flu epidemic was hyped to the sky by the CDC [and the World Health Organization]. The CDC was calling for all Americans to take the Swine Flu vaccine.
The problem was, 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 its impact. 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 may not have been necessary.
—end of interview excerpt—
It was routine for doctors all over America to send blood 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. That’s why 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 .” (“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 is no Swine Flu epidemic.
Then, the CDC estimates there are 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.
—That’s what I wrote about the Swine Flu fraud years ago.
I reprint it here to give people some perspective on what health agencies like the CDC and the World Health Organization will do to pump up the idea (not the reality) of an epidemic.
Now, if you don’t mind, I’ll blow my own horn a little. After the mind-blowing revelations Sharyl Attkisson exposed in print, in 2009, about the Swine Flu hoax, how many other reporters understood the implications and followed up by writing their own stories and pressing home the astonishing hoax? How many interviewed Attkisson and hammered on her findings and spread the facts far and wide? How many went all-out to emphasize the outrageous guilt of the CDC on this scandal?
Most reporters, when an epidemic is announced, take the bait. Automatically. They fall for the con and the hustle like rookies going to Vegas for the first time, thinking they’re going to score at the betting tables. They make the crucial mistake of believing that some virus has really been discovered, and it is about to wreak havoc in the population.
A new virus story always sounds good. It will have legs. People will want to know about it. Some reporters—blithely accepting the existence and dire impact of a virus—will take that ball and run with it into new territory: “the virus was created in a lab.” They don’t stop and consider the possibility (confirmed by history) that the hoax goes all the way to the bottom—no virus was actually discovered, or if it was, there is a zero proof that it’s harmful. They miss that vital step.
There is more to discuss along this line—and I have, in print. It involves asking the questions, “How do researchers actually isolate a new virus and identify it?” and, “What are the correct standards for proving a particular germ causes a particular disease?” When you ask those questions and pursue the answers, you find yourself wading hip-deep in a swamp. The garbage floating around you is formidable. Everybody and his brother in the official medical community has answers, and most of them turn out to be self-serving propaganda, not science. It’s as if you’re hearing: THE WAY TO ISOLATE A VIRUS AND PROVE IT CAUSES A PARTICULAR DISEASE IS THE WAY WE SAID WE DID IT. NOW DON’T BOTHER US ANYMORE.
But it turns out that bothering is good. Necessary.

Jon, thanks for all your hard work. Have you seen the Joker movie? Any thoughts on it as a psyop?
Thanks for all of your hard work on exposing these fake epidemics. I’m doing my best to post your links all over the place. I’m also posting on the ebola hoax, in addition to the well-documented scientific fraud of HIV causes AIDS. I think it’s hard for people to take all of this in, though your writing is extremely clear and easy to follow. Thanks again!!
There is an immense difference between the person who dares to disbelieve the current narrative, and the person who waits until enough time has passed, to verify that yes, 65 million people did NOT collapse on the street to be whisked away by the brave hazmat teams to a brand new hospital surrounded by a plastic bubble. It has been said that hindsight is 20/20, but it is not often said what foresight is.
True science is based on successful prediction to validate its theories. This tells us two things about this story. One, the CDC and its cohorts are not true science. And two – Jon, and any other person who is willing to stick his neck out and call this for what it is, is acting in the true spirit of science.
Strange how the news is now announcing the evacuation of Americans from the “quarantined” city of Wuhan. Wouldn’t that put more people at risk if this were a true event? How does this make any sense if the narrative is true? How can it even be called a quarantine if they start pulling people out of it? Reminded me of the “brave” health worker who defied quarantine orders after coming back to the states with Ebola. The news just cheered that stupidity as heroic. News is less real than professional wrestling. At least in wrestling, there is some substance to the match. With the news, nada.

“…………….On March 23, researchers at CDC found a coronavirus in the lung fluids of a dead SARS patient from Hong Kong. Coronaviruses are so named because they have spiky surfaces that make them resemble stars with coronas when viewed with an electron microscope. Soon after, the virus was grown into workable quantities in cell cultures……………..
……………..Which are better, live or killed vaccines? someone asks.
Killed coronavirus vaccines, which are relatively safe, don’t work well, an expert answers. Vaccines made from live, weakened virus work better. But the one given to chickens to prevent bronchitis sometimes “reverts” to a dangerous form — a very undesirable outcome.
For more than a half-hour, ideas spill forth. Both the uniformed people at the table and the voices on the phone pose questions and throw out theories like eager graduate students.
Is the rare “super spreader” patient who infects a dozen or more people shedding the SARS virus in his or her digestive tract? Could the fact that some coronaviruses attack two organs explain why many SARS victims in the Amoy Gardens housing block in Hong Kong had intestinal complaints? Is there something in all of this that explains why so few children have come down with SARS?

Pirbright’s livestock coronavirus research – your questions answered
……….The Institute holds Patent no. 10130701 which covers the development of an attenuated (weakened) form of the coronavirus that could potentially be used as a vaccine to prevent respiratory diseases in birds and other animals. Many vaccines are made in this way, from flu to polio. We have not yet developed an IBV vaccine, but research is ongoing.
The Institute is strategically funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, part of UK Research and Innovation (BBSRC UKRI) and also receives funding from many other organisations including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The patented work was not funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. More information on The Livestock Antibody Hub which is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is available on our website…………
Amazing! Have they now weaponized the “Common Cold” in order to advance their nefarious plans for humanity. So far it would appear that this is all just the usual hype, with no provable evidence that there is a new strain of Coronavirus sweeping the planet.
The question is, what is the purpose of all this? Why all the lies and hype about the Swine Flu in 2009? What was the end result? What did they attain? (there were no mass deaths due to either the swine flu or the vaccine they pushed). And why are they now doing it again in 2020, this time with the Coronavirus?
one money and 2. electronic tagging of humans 3. corona virus in 5g affected chinese citizens 4. keep people in HK from protesting against China.
It’s what people AVOID talking about that speaks the loudest. It’s not rocket science to put together these flu “epidemics” are BS yet pandered by the CDC and all the mainstream talking heads and orgs. Yet virtually nobody brings it up…what Jon wrote.
Why? Where’s Deepak Chopra on all this? Tony Robbins?
Crickets. Both those guys have the smarts to put this together. They could put together the vaccine hoax. How about 911 and the “Triple Towers”? No that’s no a typo…3 Towers were demolished by 2 planes hitting…well 2/3 towers. How stupid do you have to be to believe the official story and NOT speak out about it? Yeah, so there’s money to be made here…ssh! We have businesses and careers to keep…gotta look like we care about others…sorta.
Have you heard of the psychoanalyst Erich Fromm? Probably not. He wrote in detail about human behavior in regard to the negative effects of society as a result of the disintegration of the ability to love and care for each others; having become obsessed with having stuff instead of being.
Fromm said to care for something was to keep it alive, healthy, to support its growth. Caring is one of the aspects of love.
But today, we see that care is no longer a verb but a preference–something you don’t do but an abstract thing. It’s a “like” on social media… Love? It’s another preference…same thing.
People have no clue about the operating system of the mind: your inner language forms a code that becomes beliefs…math equations. if X exists it means Y. These are beliefs and are highly contextual and are highly inaccurate. Yes there’s more to your mind than words, but you’re dealing with the world in words, shouldn’t you know about belief systems?
No…Big Education wouldn’t want you to know all about words because you’d see right through these phony stories. There are those who are quite educated in belief systems yet mum’s the word…why is that?
Some call this “Conformity Trance”. Others call this being a pussy. Either way, the “silent majority” allows the tiny percent of psychos to rule the Earth.
Nothing to worry about.
It is funny you should mention history, specifically recent history, but totally ignore more distant history. You should be faltered though, Allen quoted your first paragraph almost word for word.
You don’t lock down cities with mega million populations (especially when it will effect holiday and your ability to rule because of losing face) for a drill or a case of the sniffles. Maybe you haven’t considered that all the other false calls were to prep us for when it was real that people would be unwilling to believe it so they will be caught with their paints down so that the beastie can do its best? Pandemics are historical certainties (it is funny he should mention history, but ignore all the real pandemics we have had), and we are way over due, even more so considering all the monkey business with making germ warfare bugs and their statements about wanting to kill us all off. No one is suggesting taking a vaccine, but that doesn’t mean being stupid in other ways either. “If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.” ― Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
Unfortunately, Jon Rappoport’s account omits a number of the most important elements of the fake 2009/10 “swine flu pandemic:
1. WHO DG Margaret Chan announced in 2009 that “high mortality” would no longer be a defining characteristic of a pandemic;
2. A Czech laboratory worker tasked with multiplying flu vaccine to combat the “pandemic” discovers ‘by chance’ – he decides to test the vaccine he has been sent (if I remember rightly, from Baxter Pharmaceutical’s Austrian office) on some laboratory ferrets. They all die. He discovers that the ‘mother’ vaccine has been contaminated with live bird flu virus – which would make the ‘pandemic’ vaccine extremely lethal. This is reported in a local Czech newspaper and is coincidentally read by a friend of Irish-Austrian medical journalist Jane Burgermeister, who subsequently filed criminal charges against Baxter.
Baxter claim it was an unfortunate error … impossible given the extremely high level of security required for handling such material (Level 3+). A representative of the Austrian Health Ministry gave the following absurd explanation: “An error appeared as an effect of a few independent factors that accidentally happened together”.
3. On 26 January, 2010, German epidemiologist Wolfgang Wodarg (at the time chair of the Health Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe) made a statement to the Social, Health and Family Affairs Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly at its hearing on “The handling of the H1N1 pandemic”, in which he emphasised the significance of the WHO’s change in the definition of a pandemic and its raising of the alert level from 5 to 6, this triggering the contracts made with governments worldwide, estimated to be some $18 billion in value.
The Polish Health Minister at the time, Eva Kopacz, had refused to authorise the use of the untested pandemic vaccine, stating that the secret contract the Polish government was supposed to sign with pharmaceutical companies had more than 20 clauses which were against the law and that the prosperity of the Polish people was more important to her than the profits of Big Pharma (as reported by Global Research on 15 November, 2009). She saved her country millions.
An important resource is the 18-page Draft Resolution by Paul Flynn, rapporteur of the Social Health and Family Affairs Committee, on “The handling of the H1N1 pandemic: more transparency needed”.
It begins: “The Parliamentary Assembly is alarmed about the way in which the H1N1 influenza pandemic has been handled, not only by the World Health Organization (WHO), but also by the competent health authorities at the level of the European Union and at national level. It is particularly troubled by some of the consequences of decisions taken and advice given leading to distortion of priorities of public health services across Europe, waste of large sums of public money, and also unjustified scares and fears about health risks faced by the European public at large.”
Dr. Wodarg subsequently made it clear that he believed the whole affair was a scam. The story was picked up by the British “Daily Mail”: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1242147/The-false-pandemic-Drug-firms-cashed-scare-swine-flu-claims-Euro-health-chief.html.

Thanks for all you are doing to get the truth out and to try to get people to at least question what’s going on.
I drop your links all over the place, but people have a hard time wrapping their heads around all of this. I’m also dropping links on the HIV/AIDS fraud, but people are seriously brainwashed and can’t seem to grasp the level of evil we’re dealing with. Do you ever go on alternative radio to try to wake people up to this? I’ve heard Dr. Nancy Banks on a couple of alternative radio shows, trying to wake people up to the HIV/AIDs scam–I think that if people can wake up to that one and what that was really about, it makes it easier to see all the other virus epidemic frauds and hoaxes.
