My bottom lines on the China epidemic

—As always, I suggest that readers go through my recent articles on the China epidemic (archive here). I can’t recapitulate all the relevant findings every time I write a new piece.

This article is a kind of summary of where I stand, at this moment. A rather crowded snapshot.

Judging from the history of epidemics that turned out to be duds—West Nile, bird flu, SARS, Swine Flu, and so on—and judging from my research on these frauds—I see no reason to jump the gun and say, “This one is different.”

Every time one of these threatening clouds passes across the sun, all sorts of people in both the mainstream and alternative press make dire predictions, ranging from “this looks like a global pandemic,” to “the virus is a bio-weapon and will kill millions,” to the ever-popular, “this is THE BIG ONE.”

And then, when the dust clears, and the dud is exposed, amnesia about having made those predictions sets in.

Now we have a variety of people claiming they know the Chinese coronavirus is a bio-weapon, for several different reasons. I have no cause to rail against these people. As far back as 1988, I documented astonishingly lax conditions in supposedly secure bio-research labs, and the distinct probability of all sorts of germs escaping. I devoted many pages in my book, AIDS INC., to a history of bio-war research, grotesque animal experiments, and incompetent safety precautions in labs. I have written about US companies and government-connected organizations sending bio-war materials to Saddam Hussein in the 1980s.

Proving that this Chinese coronavirus is a bio-weapon is a different matter. If, as proposed, there are peculiarities in the genetic sequence of the virus, and it has therefore been tinkered with by humans…well, perhaps that is correct. I don’t know. However, I have deeper and more basic suspicions about published genetic sequences of viruses, from which that assertion is derived. Meaning: I don’t automatically accept the published sequences as true or accurate or real.

For example, my most recent article included a very troubling interview that challenged the original isolation and identification of HIV—as in, did researchers ever really find that virus? If they didn’t, we would be looking at fraud on a mind-boggling level…and any so-called genetic sequencing of the virus would be impossible, except as gross error or fraud. If you can’t find the culprit and you don’t know what he looks like, how can you describe him?

To bolster this point—in past articles, I’ve detailed how, in the cases of SARS and 2009 Swine Flu, the purported viruses seemed to disappear. That is, they couldn’t be found in patients. Yet, reported case numbers of the “virus epidemics” continued to expand. One very real possibility looms: the researchers never actually found, located, isolated, and identified these viruses in the first place. Therefore, any published genetic sequences of these viruses were, to put in kindly, entirely irrelevant.

And therefore, to infer from those genetic sequences that such chimerical viruses were actually bio-weapons…well, that would be miles off the mark.

Many people would turn purple and apoplectic at the idea that published genetic sequences could be con jobs, hustles, and giant errors. But very early on, in the 1980s, I discovered how researchers will toe the official line, out of fear. Imagine a mainstream researcher contacting the World Health Organization, or a premier medical journal, and saying: “Your genetic roadmap of Virus X…I’m not getting the same result. My map is completely different from yours. I’m not even sure I’m sequencing a virus. Will you examine my finding? We need more independent work. What the hell is going on?” Here today, gone tomorrow. That researcher would suddenly find himself out in the cold in his underwear. No perks, no publisher, no job, no reputation. And he knows this UP FRONT. So he keeps his mouth shut and swallows his objections. For instance, in 1987, I had a highly respected virologist tell me he KNEW there was a serious problem in calling HIV the cause of AIDS, but he and his colleagues were going to “take a pass on this one.” He saw the political landscape. He knew there was a rig-job in progress. The human implications of naming a meaningless item as the cause of illness and death? Did he even pause and think about that? Regardless, he shrugged and turned his attention to other matters. An overarching rule: the researchers who disagree with the forced consensus don’t get published in “respected journals,” so their colleagues and the public never hear about them.

Moving on—THE VIRUS is a fake propaganda idea that has traditionally been used to cover up vast crimes and the destruction of human life in ways that have nothing to do with germs. THE VIRUS is one of the greatest cover stories ever invented. I’ve explained how propaganda about viruses is made to stand in for corporate and government crimes that make people sick and kill them: contaminated water supplies; lack of basic sanitation; giant toxic agricultural farms; industrial poison-pollution; hunger; starvation; protein-calorie malnutrition; fertile farm land stolen from native people by corporations and governments; toxic medical drugs and vaccines; and now, in Wuhan and other Chinese cities, unprecedented mixtures of toxic air pollution, causing lung damage. The basic theme is: DON’T LOOK AT ALL THOSE CRIMES, JUST FOCUS ON THE VIRUS AS THE ONLY PROBLEM. This is sheer invention.

Next: in fake epidemics, case numbers are always inflated by the devious use of categories that label and count people who aren’t sick, will not get sick, will only experience something on the order of mild flu, or who are only numbers in computer-modeled predictions.

I documented the astounding fraud perpetrated by the CDC in 2009, when the overwhelming percentage of tissue samples from so-called Swine Flu patients revealed they didn’t have ANY KIND OF FLU. And the CDC went on to estimate there were 22 MILLION cases of Swine Flu in the US in 2009.

The most widely used tests used to diagnose and label people as “case numbers of the virus” and “sick” and “infected” are inherently flawed. For different reasons, the antibody and PCR tests do NOT prove that people are ill or are going to become ill. This fact, of course, leaves a gaping hole in the assessments of “epidemics.” It also forces patients into toxic treatments they do not need. It puts a potent fearful diagnosis in their minds that is entirely wrong.

There is now a rush to develop a new vaccine against the Chinese coronavirus. I’ve warned readers that at least two of these vaccine technologies—DNA and RNA vaccines—are experimental and have never been openly licensed for use on the public. Therefore, the population of Earth—if these vaccines are deployed—will unknowingly step up to the plate in a vast guinea-pig test. DNA vaccines alter the genetic makeup of recipients PERMANENTLY, in unpredictable ways. RNA vaccines carry the admitted risk of causing auto-immune reactions. Basically, this means the body would attack itself. The vaccine is the hammer in this dangerous “epidemic” stage play. It is one of the extreme payoffs for having fomented fear and the desire to “obey authorities.”

In this “epidemic” and past similar instances, friends and colleagues have sent assessments up the flagpole which are far different from mine. They are still my friends and colleagues. I make no attempt to stir conflict among us. We agree on many vital issues. We will continue to agree.

All right—that’s my snapshot. This is where I stand, for the present, on the China coronavirus situation. Every point I’ve made, in broad strokes, in this article, is explained more fully in my recent articles.

I raise one more question for your serious consideration. If highly toxic pollution in the air, in Chinese cities, is causing deep lung damage, and if the Chinese government is covering that up with a story about a virus—what is now happening to the millions of Chinese people locked down, with nowhere to go, trapped in those cities—breathing the air?

P.S. Several readers have sent me significant emails stating that Wuhan is a global center of 5G technology and deployment. I have written about the health dangers of 5G. Is this yet another non-coronavirus vector for disease and damage? It would certainly not surprise me. I have not had the time to look into this thoroughly. For the present, at least, I leave the job to others.

Well, I thought I was through writing this piece, but I need to make another crucial point. As you can see from the list of crimes I mentioned above, where corporations and governments are making people sick and killing them—and then using the cover story of a virus to hide their crimes—illness and death can come and do come from multiple causes. However, the public finds it hard to accept and understand this. Most people would rather seek out THE ONE THING that is the explanation. There is a deep psychological need to discover THE ONE. That is a reason why THE VIRUS cover story works so well. IT is portrayed as the single cause and the single evil. It is the psychological magnet to which all sorts of particles attach. This addiction has to be conquered. And this paragraph is a short version of what would be an 800-page book on the subject.

    This seems like just more media lies from the system to me though I just came from the wimple angle of just plane ridiculous videos of dead people on streets, hallways and building hospitals in 10 days that prove the virus is “real”. I made a spoof video on my youtube channel “zoom truth” about the virus — which youtube has age restrected lol. Interesting article, I came here from a comment on “winter watch” which recommended your blog.

    If you ever want to do a live stream on my YouTube channel and chat let me know […]

    thx dave

  2. Eli Hernandez says:

    Please do videos. Jon. Team up with others like Jay Dyre, Corbett, Truthstream media. Let your voice be heard. I wish you so many more years of life on this earth. A real hero in this technotronic era.

  3. Alan Kwan says:

    Another contributing factor to the epidemic might be the Chinese’s overdosing of antibiotics. Their men and livestock (which pass the drug to the man who eats it) are overdosed, which kills the gut microbiome and impairs the immune system.

    This makes them easily suspectable to disease and infection, so the usual flu and puemonia viruses become dangerous and deadly to them. And in such environment, the viruses might have developed resistance to antibiotics, making them hard to treat by Big Pharma doctors.

    Yes, it’s probably multiple factors causing the situation in Wuhan, but among which the bat-borne coronovirus should be excluded. That tale sounds like shabby fictional work from a C-grade manga writer.

    • stephen langley says:

      Hi Jon, great work unpacking the WHOLE enchilada… studied advice, so thank you. Whatever the motivation(s) whether institutionalized avarice or the genocide ‘proposed’ on “The Georgia Guide Stones”, the weapons of catastrophe capitalism operate synergistically providing plausible deniability (and no liability) for the producer of each component. Yet the components are connected via the interlocking corporate-governmental power structure (our current fascist state). Unpacking that is, too, life threatening as demonstrated by how insider whistle blowers suffer and die for exposing the criminality.

      A very important note about the synergistic components is fear… the placebo/nocebo effect is very real and scientifically verified. Toxins withstanding, in large measure we can will ourselves into health or “worry ourselves to death”. Corporations produce the poisons and the government provides the fear component. Take away of it all: work on our health daily… small choices accrue synergistically, too, to create health that can easily resist pathogens.

      • Peter says:

        Great comment Stephen. You get my pick as the most lucid and balanced, but there are some great ones further down too. At least you put it in perspective with the advice about placebo and nocebo. They don’t need to kill us if we do the job ourselves…. no blood on their hands and no bad karma to work off…

  4. Dennis says:

    Jon, there are not many, I don’t know of any at least, that speak against the fear mongering going on with these virus stories. So thank you!

    I heard a British politician today say that we must get used to the idea of “some pandemic popping up every few years or so.” It is no different than the way they all connect extreme weather events with carbon emissions…when no one speaks about the ENMOD convention of 1976 which banned the use techniques that cause climate change and extreme weather events. But that’s another story.

  5. Jessica Taylor says:

    What a storyline! Thank you so much for keeping us informed. A rare exception these days.

    Virologist and molecular biologist Stefan Lanka suggests there ARE NO VIRUSES. He won litigation in the highest German court stating that the very existence of the measles virus has NEVER BEEN PROVEN.

    • Low Voltage says:

      I do a lot of second-hand medical writing. Nearly every condition I write about (conditions with household names), the current literature almost always states that they don’t know what causes such and such disease. It’s just a gaggle of symptoms with name attached to it.

      Virus-related diseases seem to be the only exception. Luckily they come with a vaccine!

      • Jessica Taylor says:


        And in Germany the government can easily force vaccination on children, because Hitler invented the duty to present your children in a school. Homeschooling forbidden by the constitution which Hitler invented! Parents that homeschool anyway get fined, jailed and their children will be taken away. Without measles vaccination children may not enter school. How can you escape such a system?

        • Martin1 says:

          Jessica —

          Hitler has done many bad things.
          But he did not made going to school mandatory.
          That were the Prussians.

          (I know what I am talking about, I am German!)

        • Just don’t register the birth of your kids until they are 12 years old. Then you can bypass all the laws surrounding such issues. No birth certificate means that the government cannot tell you what to do with your child or take your child off you. It’s the birth certificate that gives them the right to do that.

    • Rtp says:

      Thanks Jessica.

      Everybody needs to read the work of Lanka and of course, his mentor, Ryke Hamer.

      German New Medicine is extraordinary. Once you read about it you will wonder how the world has missed something so incredibly obvious for all this time.

    • Suzanne says:

      I remember the first time I heard about the measles thing – several kids ‘contacted’ the measles at DISNEYLAND (from another Country) – what a bunch of poppycock!

  6. Patrick says:

    Jon, ’tis an epidemic alright. An epidemic of crisis actors, where none died, many crocodile tears being cried, just another hidden hand hoax, and, of course, the masses are taken in by their never-ending ‘fear porn divide and fool’ jokes, the lying lame-stream media presstitutes coupled with the John Hoaxkins ‘scientists’ blowing endless amounts of smoke, perpetuating the ‘vaccines, vaccines, that’s all that’s needed to ward off the terrifying scenes and screams, so line up for the prick and the shtick, it’s your duty to do as the Ministry of Truth recommend, Soylent Green, AI has discovered the end’!

  7. cynthia silveri says:

    Thank you Jon. As usual you are the voice of critical thinking and reasoning.

  8. Alba says:

    Bless you for your work to bring this out in the open. Thank you.

  9. The Watchman says:

    Great analysis, Jon
    Will be linking this one today @
    along with another excellent article from Brandon Smith at the Alt-Market.

    • RTP 65 says:

      FYI, I like Brandon Smith’s work too, but he banned me from his site the other day for posting one of Jon Rappoport’s recent articles, where I suggested, like Jon, that this virus story could very well be a hoax.

      Smith offered no explanation for banning me, but I have to presume it’s because he’s invested in the mindset of “it’s real and bigger than they’re saying so prepare for the worst.” I don’t disagree about getting prepared, but of course, part of that involves understanding what the game is, and considering all angles.

      I still like Smith’s work though, because he’s one of the very few who get what’s going on geopolitically.

      • Larry C says:

        RTP 65, for some reason, your post reminds me of an observation once made by Catherine Austen Fitts: The American mind is being weaponized. (or words to that effect). I’m not quite certain what she meant by that – I’m hoping she’ll expand on that thought in the future. Her website is

      • bubbahotep says:

        I like some of Brandon’s work too but I’m not surprised by his banning you. I get that vibe from many of his responses to comments.

      • Patrick says:

        A hoax, from start to end, RTP 65, not that it will end any time soon, as the sheep must be sheared, and shekels into Swiss bank accounts steered, fear-porn from the Ministry of Truth designed to lockdown and vaccinate the masses, a predictive programming Stephen King Stand rapidly spreading in most every land, the Fourth Estate promoting the ‘scientrysts know best’ fake, but then we should expect nothing less from the hidden hand snake!

  10. Steve says:

    Great reporting! I think your insight into the HIV fraud really illustrates the need to investigate these ongoing “germ scares” as you pointed out.

    Here is a very revealing review from the horse’s mouth (or other end) by none other than our “friend” Dr. Anthony Fauci, published in JAMA, which he admits “Human coronaviruses (HCoVs) have long been considered inconsequential pathogens, causing the “common cold” in otherwise healthy people.”

    After describing the “infection” process of 2019-CoV, he talks about the need to increase the rapid deployment of Vaccines (even DNA vaccines) from 20 months to 3.25 months, and the weaponry needed (and I presume part of this germ scare drill now) to stop a world-wide epidemic.

    From JAMA: “Vaccines, which have adapted approaches used for SARS-CoV or MERS-CoV, are also being pursued. For example, scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases “Vaccine Research Center have used nucleic acid vaccine platform approaches.6 During SARS, researchers moved from obtaining the genomic sequence of SARS-CoV to a phase 1 clinical trial of a DNA vaccine in 20 months and have since compressed that timeline to 3.25 months for other viral diseases. For 2019-nCoV, they hope to move even faster, using messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine technology. Other researchers are similarly poised to construct viral vectors and subunit vaccines.
    While the trajectory of this outbreak is impossible to predict, effective response requires prompt action from the standpoint of classic public health strategies to the timely development and implementation of effective countermeasures. The emergence of yet another outbreak of human disease caused by a pathogen from a viral family formerly thought to be relatively benign underscores the perpetual challenge of emerging infectious diseases and the importance of sustained preparedness.”

    There you have it. I think this reveals what is really going on.

  11. Michele says:

    Dear Jon,
    The following is at the heart of any potential theory postulated here and again this backs up everything you are saying… I have including the link at the bottom to the entire document.


    Rudolf Virchow, father of the germ theory, stated in his later years, “If I could live my life over again, I would devote it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat–diseased tissues–rather than causing disease.” Pasteur (1822-1895) and Paul Ehrlich (1854-1915) jointly gave to the civilized world the disease theory doctrines of microbiology and immunology before vitamins, trace elements, and other nutrients had even been discovered. From their efforts and dubious discoveries, vaccines became vogue and were embraced by leading medical scientists–those longing for a sound and simple explanation for the inexplicable. Antoine Béchamp, M.D., one of the world’s foremost bacteriologists and Pasteur’s contemporary, was making great scientific discoveries and some of the greatest minds of his day accepted his theories and findings as definitely established facts. Béchamp attained so many achievements that it took eight pages of a scientific journal to list them when he died. Among many other things, he saved the French silk industry from devastation by silkworms, under the nose of Pasteur, who had been commissioned to solve it. He clearly described the process of fermentation for what it is: a process of digestion by microscopic beings. He was the first to assert that the blood is not a liquid, but a flowing tissue. He developed; a cheap process for the production of aniline which was the foundation of the dye industry.

    The germ theory, virus theory, genetic theory and autoimmune theory–contemporary disease causation theories–are all based upon and rely upon IMMUNOLOGY. Immunology is based upon and must be supported by Darwinian concepts of evolution. Pull out the evolutionary foundation and all the prevailing theories collapse; the highly publicized, but nonexistent, advances of modern medicine are exposed as scatologists!. Nonetheless, the germ theory is still believed to be the central cause of disease, because around it exists a global supportive infrastructure of commercial interests that built multi-billion-dollar industries based upon this theory.


    The inability of the Germ Theory to satisfy the POSTULATES OF KOCH…the Virus Theory can’t survive the basic requisites of scientific scrutiny to remain a theory, much less become a LAW. Dorland’s Illustrated Medical Dictionary tells us that a VIRUS is a minute, infectious agent not resolved (distinguished separately by the light microscope). It is without independent metabolism and can only replicate (reproduce itself) within a living host cell. A virion is defined as a complete viral particle found outside of host cells and can survive in crystalline form and can infect a living cell. In other words, the most intelligent virus (no brain or nervous system) outwits a cell membrane (the guardian of the cytoplasm), passes into the cells interior, sneaks by the lysosomes that normally ingest and digest intracellular decayed or foreign matter, trick the ribosomes and polysomes into believing that the virus is a friendly amino acid, enters into the amino acid polypeptide chain of amino acid residues, takes over the ribosomal control (coup d’etat), reproduces itself many times over and then kicks out a virion (crystalline) to attack the adjoining cell!

  12. Elsa says:

    Thank you so much! While sadly I couldn’t read all of your articles but managed to read many. Your blog is the first place I check if there’s a new disturbing ’emergency’ to know your point of view on the subject. I found you at the time of Ebola scandal and while I knew they were lying I couldn’t understand how they solved the symptoms part. You taught me that the first thing I should look for is what else can cause similar symptoms.
    Also thank you for your presence in Bollinger’s series.
    Wish you the best!

  13. Tim Lundeen says:

    Thanks for the analysis! You could very well be right re 5G as the primary cause.

    Have you read Firstenberg’s book, The Invisible Rainbow? He documents how the introduction of new forms of EMF are associated with flus.

    Excellent summation, thank you.

  15. john says:

    the point about people kowtowing to the “party line” is certainly true. i see people i know on wechat regurgitating the calls for staying home & helping the motherland fight this problem, blah, blah, blah…
    they are probably the blindest lemmings this side of north korea. of course, a lot of maga people & bernyites, demobrats & republicunts fit that description as well.
    welcome to idiocracy x10

  16. middleway says:

    While being distracted by the controlling mechanization’s of this materialistic world we become completely blind to the grey and shadowy manipulations of our very metaphysical souls. We have been so deeply conditioned by those controlling elements that we can no longer recognize the very source of our being. Should it therefore be any surprise that the reality of the captured ‘collective’ has taken wing for its final flight over the cuckoo’s nest?

  17. DarkStalker says:

    If wavelengths at the specific sizes of human cells and their internal cellular structures are now being radiated from the 5g towers then what could be happening is the radiation impinging on the locals is pushing them just enough Under the weather that disease takes hold…

    To try and quantify this idea it would be interesting to get a map of all the 5g radiators in Wuhan and then get another map overlay showing where the infections showed up and see if theres any correlation between the two.

    They’ve already proven they can use UV wavelengths to inactivate virii, so maybe they can use RF at 28ghz-300ghz (5g wavelengths) to just wake up the diseases everyone carries but doesn’t express while healthy…

  18. Larry C says:

    ” I have written about US companies and government-connected organizations sending bio-war materials to Saddam Hussein in the 1980s.”

    And Donald Trump makes a phone call. That sort of puts things in perspective, doesn’t it?

  19. Secrets says:

    I have seen enough written about this virus to assume it is a Bio weapon developed by DARPA and the CIA(that’s CIA and British Intelligence) and you can’t have them with out Mossad and Gladio.)

    But it’s obvious that china is lying. Which most likely means everyone is lying about something.

    A large exercise and what would happen if we had this Virus…and it’s implications on Society and the Market.

    Yes that is exactly what CIA does it experiments with Society on multiple levels. It even experiments with Remote viewing, Trying to enter the Spirit World through Magic like Magic of the Golden Dawn.

    To understand how deep this goes you need to understand just how deep the Political Game with China and The Rothschilds goes.

    everything you think you know about China is big fat Lie!

  20. Mike says:

    Why not just say “lying [and usurious] government”?
    What problems would exist after getting rid of that?

    I don’t watch videos. I read transcripts only.

  22. Tim says:

    So how many crisis actors are there in the Wuhan situation???

  23. Thank you Jon, I shared your last article in my video where I overlay the 5G map with the Corona virus map:

    I also recently shared a few articles exposing the pesticide source of polio on my channel, but REALLY what I am seriously censored for and my contribution to humanity is that i PROVED 100% NO DOUBT that weather IS weaponized using the Doppler radar and as crazy as it sounds I have proven this and show others HOW… Please take the time to learn this truth about climate changED:

    Thank you for all your hard work.

    PS: The number of 600 dead is impressive and we have people cured of corona virus in Florida with this water which is an anti radiation bullet since it rebalances the negative ions in the body, thus showing us that EMF IS related somehow. Also, beam forming can mutate the virus.
