To Trump aides: you have no idea how deep the CDC scandals go

The Trump administration’s wrestling match with the CDC — behind the smoke and lies

by Jon Rappoport

September 17, 2020

Trump aides and CDC loyalists are at war over the CDC’s handling of COVID reports. Charges; counter-charges. [1]

A core issue is the veracity of CDC weekly updates on case and death numbers.

These are included in the “Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).” [2] This is a long-standing, highly regarded, and widely referenced CDC publication.

Medical professionals (who aren’t known for their ability to think straight) rely on these CDC numbers.

Now that Trump aides are taking issue with the MMWR, defenders are circling the wagons. One such defender called the MMWR “the holy of holies.” [3]

So I had to write this article.

I had to revisit the 2009 Swine Flu case-counting fiasco.

You see, that summer, while the CDC was reporting thousands of Swine Flu cases in the US, they had secretly…

Stopped counting the numbers of cases. [4]

The person who discovered this was Sharyl Attkisson, the star investigative reporter for CBS News.

And Attkisson found out what was going on.

The overwhelming number of test samples, routinely gathered from the most likely Swine Flu patients in the US, were coming back from labs with…

No sign of Swine Flu or any other kind of flu.

My, my.

Attkisson published a piece about this massive scandal on the CBS News website. At that point, her investigation was…

Shut down.

No other major news outlet in the world picked up on her story and ran with it into the rabbit hole. The blackout was universal.

I eventually interviewed Attkisson. Here is a key excerpt:

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,” [through their MMWR reports] 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 [4]] 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 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—

The Swine Flu vaccine caused a number of severe injuries around the world.

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). [5]

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 samples from the most likely Swine Flu patients shows no sign of Swine Flu or any other kind of flu.

There is no Swine Flu epidemic. It’s a hoax.

Then, the CDC estimates there are 22 MILLION cases of Swine Flu in the US.

Since 1987, I’ve been documenting lies and scandals at the CDC. Here I’m just recounting one. But it’s sufficient to show that the “holy of holies,” the CDC MMWR, is on the level of three random rocks found in the desert, which are then called a sacred church founded by aliens from Saturn.

My advice to Trump aides is: keep digging into the CDC. Publish your findings in detail. You’re going to uncover rubble and rubbish posing as science on a scale you can’t imagine.

    What was the crap Redfield was spewing yesterday? Something about the ‘vaccine’ and its ‘effectiveness’ compared to a mask (that he held, didn’t wear).

    It’s such utter nonsense, and the media is just doubling down on the “Coronavirus Pandemic” narrative.

    I congratulate Pennsylvania, hope the best for Ohio, and pray the world wakes up to this scam before it’s too late.

  2. D. Smith says:

    Oh, believe me, Trump’s administration knows exactly how deep this goes. It’s all throughout politics, everywhere you look.

    I don’t want a Harris-Biden administration, and now I’m not in favor of Trump anymore either. Not. One. Bit.

    No one is going to be able to escape the upcoming vaccines, and I don’t think it’s going to hold off until 2021 either. These will be started within the next month, you can bet on it.

    For some VERY enlightening reading, check this out PLEASE.

    • bleak says:

      Not to mention Dr Scott Atlas’s reversal. Still many Trump supporters “in the know” think he/they are playing multidimensional chess. It’s amazing.

      I agree it’s going to happen.

    • Amanda says:

      D. Smith- Thanks for that link!! I’ve been reading over at lewrockwell at lot–they’ve been doing a great job, especially Gary Barnett. He seems to have a good handle on things, including the new financial system they are setting up.

      • D. Smith says:

        Yes, I agree, Gary’s articles over there at Lew’s are some of the best. I recently when though Gary’s archive page at Lew’s site, and caught up on all kinds of interesting articles I’d missed.

        He does seem to have a good grasp of what’s happening. I actually am not going to vote this year. I sure as the world don’t want Biden in there (you know it would be Harris in short order anyway and NO ONE should be governed by that doorknob) and now with Trump’s constantly pushing the useless untested untrialed vaccines, I’m just not going to support him if only for that one reason. It only takes one bad idea to skew the deal for me!

        And you’re welcome for the article. I hope lots of people get the opportunity to read it. Please pass it on as much as you can.

    • RegretLeft says:

      Yes, that is the very dark outlook. But how will it actually play out? – Is the Gates agenda – vaccinate the entire global population – just huge over-reach?

      I think Africa has been signaling from start that they will not be a continental vaccination laboratory this time round (search for: Africa Covid Cases Experts Baffled) – hint: they have quietly taken a pass on the plandemic.

      My Big Med news sources are talking “limited availability” into 2021 – and “priority populations”

      The CDC head guy said the same thing yesterday – Trump made him reverse today. (Ron Paul has an earlier video of him in Congress: “Should healthy people wear masks?” “No.” )

      Insiders are selling their stocks over at Moderna – the experimental RNA vaccine darling.

      Top Australian Economic Planning guy resigned yesterday and is spilling his guts.

      They are making it up as the go along.

      It is not easy to be optimistic – I am hardly that; but it’s still in play.

      • D. Smith says:

        Well, I don’t know about the “over reach” part, all I know is that Gates has more money than brains in this area and yet he’s the one dictating what’s going to happen with ALL of our future lives?? He’s over reaching but he’s also getting away with it, it seems, because now he has Trump tooting his horn for the vaccines, as well. It’s just absurd.

    “The overwhelming number of test samples, routinely gathered from the most likely Swine Flu patients in the US, were coming back from labs with…

    Undoubtedly a 2009 outbreak of CV-1984.

    I saw someone reporting on the “casedemic” yesterday.

  5. From Elsewhere says:

    This CDC shakedown will matter for the rest of the world, too. Otherwise, there will be more power for China, Russia and new dictatorships.

  6. Low Voltage says:

    What’s the scientific explanation of why mosquitoes can transmit some viruses, but not others?

  7. JoAnn Dolberg says:

    What if President Trump is only appearing as though he is playing “their” game when he is really playing his own (and America’s) game and will checkmate their move after all…think about this…

  9. Larry C says:

    “The Swine Flu vaccine caused a number of severe injuries around the world.” I wonder if Big Pharma was indemnified from damage caused by the SARS vaccine back then.

    Almost certainly the pharmaceutical industry will be held harmless from nasty “side effects” when Bill Gates & Company come knocking with their COVID-19 vaccines…

    • paranoid goy says:

      “…almost certainly…pharma….held harmless..” You mean you are not aware of the legislation being passed by most every “developed” country, using covert19 as “emergency” excuse?

  10. Mr. J says:

    Like a miracle, it will disappear. When has trump ever lied?

  11. JB says:

    I’m just not sure about this whole thing. On the one hand, there aren’t bodies stacked up everywhere, and I don’t know of anyone that’s been sick. On the other hand, I listened to a lady (on our Become Ungovernable podcast) that one of the podcasters worked with that had a bad fever for a few weeks. She was better when we talked to her, but she only felt about 70%.

    Also, Deb Della Piana of Become Ungovernable said in her You Tube video last night that Trump told Bob Woodward in February that this thing was pretty bad:

    If that’s true, the politicians are using this for their purposes. They should have done what’s right back in January, but they didn’t (which is why I think this system is a joke).

    • za ka lu says:

      ‘The U.S. government, in fact every government, is created and promoted for precisely one reason; to enable a very small group of people who control that government to exploit, through “authorized” force, the much larger group of people, who do not’.

      • JB says:

        Legalman has some great posts, but he doesn’t believe that the people can overthrow the system.

        • za ka lu says:

          I’d say legalman thinks they could, but by the evidence most certainty will not —

          —-I face it that the ‘people’ most likely won’t (overthrow gov’t). We could, but most are programmed beyond ever even considering reaching for or acting for overthrow or remedy—

    • Siouxma says:

      Trump was being told by Fauci that it was pretty bad, so he was parroting the Experts – the Coup d’Etaters.
      China has been Ground Zero for the Rockefeller NWO lab experiments on humans for decades. What other country could immediately lock down three major cities with 15-20 million people- Quarantined and Mask compliant and all worried about their social credit score tanking.
      Don’t forget the Wuhan Intl Military Games held in October 2019 as a way to contaminate and disperse to many countries. No curiosity about this & thecItalian connection? Bioweapons? Who used them? So much to know– thank God for Atkisson and Rappoport – and We the Peasants who still have eyes to see, ears to hear, and a nose to SMELL THE RATS!

    • D. Smith says:

      They certainly are using it for political purposes, that’s a fact. In February things might have SEEMED worse but as it turns out we are no worse off now than we were then except that the press is playing this for all it’s worth. They NEED a headline, doncha see?

      My state is not supposed to be locked down but each business is kinda sorta doing their own thing. People have trouble believing the truth about this because they don’t research it and thus they don’t fully understand it at all.

      No one I know has been sick or even remotely sick. Yet we cannot attend church services and a bunch of other crazy “rules” from our unknowing gubmint goons. It gets more and more disgusting and absurd everyday. This is only helping the BLM and a couple of other “movements” right now.

  12. Rachel says:

    I only recently heard about this yesterday, but the FDA just granted the use of a new test that will test for the flu and covid together, in one test, in as little as 8 hours.

    And just when I thought we might come out of the other side. Nope, not a chance.

    • Siouxma says:

      Just another way to collect your dna and deposit some nano-crap.

    • Jean Wilson says:

      as there is no covid virus but there is flu, perhaps they will label all those with flu as ‘virus victims’?

    • Piksil says:


      There is huge $$ in testing. (I would imagine the ROI on ‘covid’ testing, a bogus test, would be pretty high.–some swabs, a test tube, a Baggie, and some labels?) Money for the test maker, the labs that run them, what ever company makes the machines that run the ‘tests’, the insurance companies, the media that reports the ‘test results’, and the cartels that sponsor it all.

      Now they can bill twice as much! And with them pushing a “twindemic”, they’ll surely get more people to get tested now. And don’t forget your flu shot, it’s time…
      This is a flu-d-etat…people only get tested for the ‘flu’ if they’re symptomatic, but not now. Guess we will have asymptomatic flu carriers now as well.

      It’s H1N1 version 2.0. In ’09 the H1N1 ‘vaccine’ (emergently approved in the US by head of HHS Kathleen Sebelius) was a separate jab from the regular flu shot. (In the hospital I worked at) the people getting the H1N1 shot signed a release/waiver.
      In 2010, the ‘seasonal flu shot’ was a combination flu/H1N1 mix. I was unaware, as was the pharmacist on duty, when I got a package insert for the 2010 shot. That’s where the information was. Only there. had not updated their website from the year before (it still had the announcement that a ‘vaccine’ had been approved–from ’09). We had not been notified as infection control practitioners. Someone just st asked “are we getting one shot or two this time?”
      We did inform recipients that year that it was a combo shot. No waiver to sign in 2010. It was the new normal. Or abnormal.

    • Jock says:

      “ What’s also unclear at this point is how the influenza virus might interact with the coronavirus if a person has both viruses, a real possibility with the impending flu season. Public health experts acknowledge that the available information on COVID‐19 and influenza coinfection is limited but the two viruses, which can both cause dangerous inflammation in the lungs, could infect a patient simultaneously and potentially increase the severity of respiratory failure.”

      A flu patient testing negative for Covid19 will be coded as coronavirus to get full funding via Medicare. Very clever.

  13. Invisible Man says:

    Is there some way to get you onto the Tucker Carlson show, discussing all this? Carlson does a great job of Red pilling his audience these days. If you could get on it would blow a huge hole in the Coronahoax.

  14. Pft says:

    CDC vs Trump. More Fake Wrestling. Yawn.

    CDC has been playing this game since the 1957 Fake Pandemic, 1968 Fake Pandemic, 1976 Fake Swine Flu, 2009 Fake Pandemic. Its not new.

    Who appointed Redsfield? Trump. The dude was caught by Army investigators faking AiDS vaccine results

    Azar and Kadlec appointed by Trump involved in pushing an unsafe Anthrax vaccine and now giving the same manufacturer hundreds of millions for the COVID vaccine

    Trump appoints A Moderna shareholder/exec to head Operation Warp Speed. Pfft

    Trump says he supports HCQ but his FDA still throws up road blocks. These are all agencies under the authority of the Executive Branch headed by Trump

    • Piksil says:

      “These are all agencies under the authority of the Executive Branch headed by Trump”

        Trump has made some TERRIBLE choices in who he trusts and who he appoints. I’m losing faith in him more and more all the time.

          Agree…I am totally NOT impressed with the restriction of liberties based on “medical” pronouncements! We’re supposed to just shrug off the vast wreckage left in this country in the wake of shutdowns, distancing etc.? Shrug it off b/c some “miracle” vax is coming??!

  15. gavin says:

    I had a friend post something on FB about her displeasure that Trump took powers away from the CDC in relation to cv19 stats (or something like that) and I said the CDC is corrupt and not to be trusted, she didnt believe me. Is there anything available online which proves that the CDC this year have been messing with the numbers like they did for swine flu? Any links would be great.

  16. cris says:

    As someone above mentioned Redfield pushing masks, probably more will be pushing soon, which comparing to vaccine I think is distracting. Anyway wanted to comment by now it’s obvious masks are bad and I try not to wear one, and don’t unless inside store, so for those similar who rather not though sometimes do, this came to me because beside not wanting to wear one, have trouble breathing and think others may also, so a thing I noticed is color, because you see it on face, so what’s good is get one that’s close to skin color, or just make –

    here’s quick how-to, fabric store, cotton sheet type material close to skin color, half yard enough, matching thread, 1/4 in. iron-on stitch witch type tape so not have to sew as much. About eight bucks. Cut seven in. by five in., sort of oval so shorter at sides of face, iron tape quarter or half in. around edges, fold edges over, iron again, not too hot. Then fold two sides in, about half inch, sew short line, so channel on each to run string through each side to tie around ears instead of elastic. Can get string by the foot also, tan or skin color. Using string gathers sides of face instead of sticking out. If can’t find material close color, dye. If dye, do before glue seams. Rinse material so no coating, brown tea as dye. Hot water – tea, glass bowl, cool down, add tblsp vinegar, salt or both to set color- stir few times half hour, dry. Iron / glue, sew, put safety pin through string, to pull string through channel. Just an hour or so. Probably can find material close enough with dye, or get close and just tint more with dye.

    Close to skin color is better, no diaper face or robber face or ‘print’ whatever, less of a stop sign on face. And other people notice, saw others change after seeing mine. Best is none, though this best if wear one. I don’t wear one often, and never over nose, but when do this is near normal looking. This a little long but took the time because is difficult to buy so wanted to share quick way to make one.


  17. eceres says:

    When they were doing the swine flu push I was taken hook line and sinker, wrote to politicians, who sent back what looked like pre-made runaround, nothing about what I wrote. And about the same time in 09′ they were also still doing bailouts trillions, and wrote about that and got same type thing. That was back then so now I don’t expect anything straight from them or medias. It would be good if some around Trump could wriggle out real info though I don’t really count on it. Anyway thanks for the reminder on the hoax scare swine flu.

  18. Opie Poik says:

    Hey, kids! Now you, too, can create your own scamdemic for fun and profit! Here’s how:
    Easy-peasy, right? Hey now!

  19. Mos Craciun says:

    ” Boris Johnson shared the medical education prize with Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and a choice selection of other world leaders for demonstrating during the Covid-19 pandemic that politicians can have a more immediate effect on life and death than scientists and doctors can.”

  20. Jomsvikings says:

    All good information as usual Jon – but nobody at the top of the food chain is listening! Atlas isn’t listening, no one in Congress is paying attention, no one from the CDC will come forward as a whistleblower, no top scientists will speak out, and Trump seems now more concerned with his “Operation Warp Speed” vaccines ready for administering by the next month!!!

    It’s complete insanity…I feel like we’ve lost this war. Forced vaccination appears to be the end point with this whole ridiculous virus. A Medical Cartel takeover of all nations and mind-control of the masses!

    I’ve never seen a nation so consumed in, and controlled by fear. People masked up everywhere, everyone keeping their distance at all times, people sanitizing everything they come in contact with…basically afraid of their own shadow (whew…I could tell you things at the gym that I regulary workout where people obsessively wipe down every piece of equipment before & after use, some wearing plastic medical gloves, keeping their mask on at all times, afraid to talk to anyone, etc – paranoia like I’ve never seen before in the fitness world. At what’s sad is “thee” imperious W.H.O doesn’t recommend wearing masks while excercising at all because of breathing restrictions and build-up of microorganisms from sweat & heat within the mask. And I thought all these people were following the science…Lol.

    And the control the MSM has over the masses is mindboggling! People conditioned to go after and report others not wearing masks or social distancing, information & posts being deleted and censored on YouTube, FB, Twitter & public discussion forums. Paid pharma trolls roaming the internet and ambushing posters on discussion forums & social media personally attacking anyone who dares questioning the virus narrative, mask mandates,vaccine safety, etc. And they’re even putting people in prison now for spreading the virus when they HAVEN’T HAD A CONFIMATION ON ANY TESTS YET and were only suspicious based on symptoms! (which could be symptoms for influenza, a cold, toxic air exposure, bacterial infection and a zillion other things!!!):

    Probably most disappointing is the recent short debate between the pro-vaccine and pretentious legal expert Alan Dershowitz and anti-vax, pro-choice, producer of “Vaxxed” & CEO of “Inform Consent Action Network” Del Bigtree:

    Dershowitz walked all over Bigtree making a mockery of him. These two looked like they were best of friends or something. Lol. Dershowitz is clearly stating that the Covid vaccine can legally – and will forced on us no matter what. Where the heck is Bigtree’s rebutal!?! He brings up Nuremberg where it was decided by the Tribunal that no medical treatment or substance can be forced on people because of what the Nazi’s were doing to Jews and Dershowitz doesn’t seem to be at all concerned with that. Bigtree should have been much more aggressive and called Dershowitz out for what he is. Bigtree is supposed to be on our side and he gets pasted in this debate (not really even a debate – more like a lecture from Dershowitz…Lol).

    Again, I think we’ve lost this battle and the Medical Cartel has won for good. Short of a miracle, I don’t see anything changing the eventual FORCED VACCINATION of every American.

    Troubling times ahead…..

    • Rick Potvin in Phoenix AZ says:

      Well written overview, thanks. Trump insanely reiterated his vax program today in a press conference. I had to stop listening because his “flight forward” into this is having a visceral negative effect on me lately. As well, seeing only half-faces on everyone and losing access to many places is beginning to affect me in a way I didn’t predict: I’m losing my happy go lucky demeanor and former identity. The psychological aspect of all this is probably worse than what is generally being talked about. Nice paragraphs!

      • Theta says:

        Rick Potvin in Phoeniz AZ

        I am losing my usual bliss too. The psychological aspect of this psyop I believe IS a lot worse than what is generally acknowledged. People are hesitant to claim any emotional distress as opposed to physical. People are more than willing to share physical ailments but not emotional. Maybe emotional ailments show weakness and lack of character. Only remedies I have found is to avoid the TV and most media, get outside as much as possible and stay active.
        BTW, what is it about seeing only half-faces that is so bothersome?
