COVID is a data-driven operation, but suppose the data are wrong?

by Jon Rappoport

September 23, 2020

A recent New York Times article reported on a large study that concluded up to 90 percent of all US COVID cases are false-positives. [1]

There have been numerous reports of hospitals writing “COVID” on patients’ death certificates with no justification whatsoever. The CDC itself has stated that only 6 percent of reported US COVID deaths are FROM the virus. The rest are WITH the virus. This means something is very wrong. These mostly elderly people (the 94 percent) had prior medical conditions that were potentially lethal on their own. [2] [3]

Both COVID case numbers and death numbers show evidence of fraud.

According to law, significant fraud committed during a disaster is a felony, with a penalty of up to 30 years in prison.

Wouldn’t you expect a law-enforcement agency to be conducting an investigation of potential COVID fraud? After all, the lockdowns and the economic devastation are justified on the basis of…what? Case and death numbers.

Data. If the data are wrong, someone in the Justice Department should find that out.

A simple analogy: a rich man wants to buy a choice piece of land and build shorefront condominiums. Presently, there is a building on the land. The owner runs his business out of that building. His profit margin is slender. The rich man offers to buy the building, but the stubborn owner refuses.

One day, a building inspector shows up and does a full-on inspection. His report shows 20 code violations, some of them quite serious. The building owner must make major repairs, but he can’t afford them.

So he agrees to sell the building to the rich man.

But a local prosecutor receives a tip: the code inspector falsified his report.

False data.

An investigation ensues. To no one’s surprise, it turns out that, yes, the inspector committed fraud. In fact, there are no serious code violations.

Everyone understands this case. There’s nothing mysterious about it.

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) should be very interested in the possibility of COVID case and death number fraud. Suppose the true numbers are much, much lower than official reports indicate?

The lockdowns and the economic devastation would have been unnecessary. And unjustified.

I’ll sketch out what a DOJ investigation could look like.

DOJ analysts dig in and find out that, in every state where a lockdown was ordered, the governor was receiving his data on case and death numbers from his public health department. They, in turn, were getting their numbers from state institutions who were receiving federal money.

For instance, in State X, University Y’s epidemiologists were collecting data and calculating case and death numbers, rates, percentages, and so on. University Y was then sending data reports to the governor’s public health department.

So DOJ agents visit University Y. They seize computers and reports. They take names. They interview the scientists and tell them data fraud can land them in prison for 30 years.

This is how it begins.

Word quickly spreads in the medical/scientific community. The gravy train (federal money) is stopped on the tracks. Prison terms are a strong possibility. “I didn’t know the data were wrong” and “I was just repeating what other people told me” and “I did what I was ordered to do” aren’t going to fly.

The whole house of false data begins to collapse. The criminals make deals and roll over on each other.

This would be called Justice.

Of course, a very strong US Attorney General would have to take control of his Justice Department, and refuse to back down.

Equally important, he would have to overcome a blind spot about Science. It isn’t a holy of holies immune to challenge.

On one level, we’re talking about data. That’s it. False data.

What do you think bank fraud is about, and investment fraud, and money laundering, and cooked safety studies, and massive tax evasion? The DOJ makes these cases all the time.

They look for false data.

It’s no mystery.

So look at COVID from the point of view of wrong data. There’s nothing holy or unchallengeable about it.

At different points in the communication network, people are committing data fraud.

As everyone in the public was told, when the computer age dawned, garbage in equals garbage out.

“But this is Science!”

No it isn’t. It’s data. Look at the reports. Analyze them.

De-mystify them.

On this simple direct level, the situation is no different from a broker telling clients that Company ABC stock is a great buy…and then the stock unaccountably and suddenly crashes, and it’s discovered that the broker fed the clients grossly wrong information.

SEC agents interview the broker. He says he was just acting on reports about Company ABC and its stock. Which reports? The ones compiled by a firm that makes investment recommendations. Well, how did that firm come to wrong conclusions? The firm obtained its information from yet another analytic outfit, and that outfit, lo and behold, ultimately got its data from Company ABC itself.

The SEC focuses on three executives in Company ABC. The executives built an elaborate lie. They invented data.

Company ABC was not a great stock opportunity. The Company was in deep financial trouble. When that fact emerged, the stock crashed.

This was no mysterious economic puzzle only Nobel Prize winners could understand.

In the same way, COVID case and death number fraud isn’t a complex science labyrinth only the experts can navigate.

It’s a question and answer. Yes or no.

Let’s find out.

Let’s not go to Joe Biden or Donald Trump for the answer and the facts. Let’s not go to their political parties. Or the evening network news.

DOJ agents and their educated white-collar analysts and veteran statisticians can sit down with Anthony Fauci and Robert Redfield and get their answers. Fine. But other interviews can be conducted with scientists like Scott Atlas and John Ioannidis.

There is nothing arcane here. It’s about DATA. Are the data true or false? If false, who is committing fraud? Who is skewing the numbers and inventing transparently absurd reasons for skewing the numbers?

A reader may be thinking, “I know already the answers.” Sadly, this is not my point in this article. If the Department of Justice can come to know the answers, and then prosecute the criminals, and put the fear of prison into countless other enablers, then all of us win.

If the DOJ refuses, if the Attorney General doesn’t have the stomach for the battle, then we still have the courts.

We have, for example, the recent decision in the Pennsylvania case, where a federal judge ruled that the governor’s lockdown measures were violations of Constitutional freedoms.

Most importantly, there is the Ohio case I’ve been writing about, and the small-town lawyer, Tom Renz, who is relentlessly pursuing a suit against the state governor. One part of that suit is very definitely a challenge to the official case and death numbers. [4]

Mr. Renz has a lineup of expert witnesses, who can establish fraud.

As Mr. Renz builds his organization, I soon hope to have a link to publish, so people can donate to his legal fund. He can use our help.

The information age is not new. For centuries, leaders have been using false data to sell stories that put their populations under the gun. Here and now, a leader who, instead, wants an open and free society, can make his power and influence count.

Can someone tap US Attorney General Barr on the shoulder and tell him that?

Among my readers, there are people who work in the field of information technology. They should tell their colleagues and friends COVID has a straight-out DATA problem. Spread that word. It’s easily grasped. It takes the sacred “science” generality out of the equation.

    Here’s a link for the Ohio lawsuit, the GoFundMe page for their movement which is called “Ohio Stands Up!”. I donated $50 the other day in the honor of young Jack Green, a 19 year old son of a good friend of mine who committed suicide on 9/5/20 as a result of the stress and depression he felt as his world imploded thanks to the COVID scamdemic.

    As of this post (2:30AM PDST, 9/23/20 they’re at $72,691 of a $75,000 goal. The way I see it, they’re going to need all the $$ they can get to find and win in Ohio so to send shock waves through the world of these fraudsters, and so other suits will be brought all over. Shake the damn tree.

  2. From Elsewhere says:

    Well said, Jon! Justice and truth should stand together.
    This madness needs to stop now. However, it would be the first, since nobody was convicted for the fake bird flu, the SARS, swine flu.

    And, the good news, others are on the justice track, as well:

  3. Doe Axme says:

    This Scandemic will end when “WE” take off the Masks, Refuse to wear them and shout from the rooftops that “We are mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore” ! Only “WE” have the power to take out country and our civil liberties and our lives back. The Gov’t works for you…not the other way around !

    • Jomsvikings says:

      I don’t think we can “refuse to wear them and shout from the rooftops” – it’s full Gestapo on people not wearing masks in Ohio!

      I can’t believe what I’m seeing in this video. A young girl sitting with her mom by themselves outside in football bleachers is ROUGHED UP & TASERED BY A POLICE OFFICER FOR NOT WEARING A FREAKING MASK!!!

      It’s hard to watch this video – Jon what do you think about this? This country has gone insane with Covid on the brain. Roughing up & tasing a harmless female citizen for not wearing a GD mask outdoors!

      And the Police wonder why they’re being criticized & defunded!

      We’re in trouble folks! It’s mask enforcement for now and when the vaccine comes out it’ll be forced vaccinations where you’ll be roughed up & tased!

  4. Opie Poik says:

    Everywhere people are still complying en masse, it seems. Logic does not seem to rule – fear does.

    If the percentage of we, the awake, approaches the Pareto principle’s excellent 20%, will we turn the tide, or be quashed as enemies? Will the ghosts of Edward Bernays and Ellis Medavoy triumph in convincing the huddled morons to run us out of town to Camp FEMA?

    This is (barely) funny – it kinda comports with the state’s claim of absolute control over objective reality from the Orwell passage above:

  5. Hélios says:

    I’m sure justice will be done in 2021 in every country of the world.

  8. Arthur Danu says:

    To think there will be JUSTICE regarding the COVID-FRAUD, in a country that has ROUTINELY turned a blind eye to a whole host of major crimes over the entire 48 years of my lifetime (many of them FAR WORSE THAN COVID), is to be DELUDED to the highest degree possible.

    Even most of the readers on this website are content to not change anything. We feel somewhat, “better” about ourselves because “we know the score” and occasionally forward some “awake” internet material to our friends and the sleeping masses on social media, but in truth, most of us are as dis-empowered as all the rest.

    For example, I would bet most of the visitors to this website still pay taxes to the IRS, even though they are not legally obliged to do so. Failure to stand up for your own economic freedom has empowered the government to act with impunity in all areas of our life (

    The SUN has been blocked by chemical sprays for at least the last 19 years, and there has been barely a fucking PEEP out of anyone, especially the internet “good guys”.

    We’ve VACCINATED two entire generations into medically and financially ruined lives, and raised them to be debt slaves, against the best and highest aspirations of this country.

    We’ve killed MILLIONS in GENOCIDAL wars in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, with the last significant protests occurring in the early 1970s (with a minor blip in 2002-03).

    Now, the game is getting close to crunch time, and millions of people (WHITE PEOPLE) will be leaving this planet violently, and soon.

    While I would LOVE to see humanity at least make some kind of heroic last stand, most are content to simply let THANOS win the INFINITY WAR against life in general.

    We’ve all become way to content being slaves in the matrix, Jon’s work and materials not withstanding.

    Whatever great dream or goals you have for your life, you better get them done quick. The new normal is going to be a shit-show of the highest magnitude.

    Or, metaphysically, KARMA (justice) of the most balanced and noble kind.

      “I would bet most of the visitors to this website still pay taxes to the IRS, even though they are not legally obliged to do so.”

      Hey Arthur, I happen to agree, and spent quite a bit of time searching for the way out. I seem to remember that Pete Hendrickson is in jail – not that that makes him incorrect, but it certainly puts an [intentional] damper on others making an effort to opt out. I would like to hear of your bonafide route – DSKlausler at hotmail dot com.

  9. Phil says:

    A Covid investigation should not just “follow the data,” they should also “follow the money.” The money angle with Covid is prevalent! Hospital charging more for Covid hospitalizations and three times as much for putting patients on ventilators (which killed a lot of patients, which is more than mere fraud), scientists in CDC, NIH, etc., standing to make millions in royalties from new vaccines or treatment medications, PVOs standing to make millions in grants from inflating the numbers predicting infections and deaths, etc., etc.

  10. Jon,

    I just posted the title of and link to your article as a comment to Melinda Gates’ recent LinkedIn post:

    Melinda wrote in the first line of her post: “I’m a big believer in the power of data to uncover problems and highlight solutions.”

    Perhaps you can “connect” with Melinda on LinkedIn and persuade her and Bill to cooperate with Covid Fraud investigators 🙂

  11. Pisces says:

    I completely agree that there’s nothing unchallengable about “covid” narrative. Even though the whole thing was planned by the globalists to reduce our freedoms, the outcome of this event is not set in stone! It’s not like we can’t make a difference just because ‘people with money’ decided to reduce the world population to make it easier for them to control the world. No! YOU can make a difference even by talking to people who believe in “covid-19” to make them question the narrative they believe. “Event 201 pandemic exercise” is a great topic to start to make people think about that this is a planned event, because most of them can see that it’s not a coincidence that they released a pandemic exercise video in which they actually used the word “coronavirus” weeks before the “new coronavirus” was “discovered”. Then you can bring up that so-called new virus was never discovered in the first place and “covid” is just a politically charged narrative that’s being used to reduce our freedoms and that’s when I start to share Jon’s articles to make people see that it’s nothing more than a theory or a story that’s not something to be worry about. I’m doing my part to inform as many people as possible because I know that if more and more people know about the fakery, deception and the reason behind this event, more and more people will refuse to be obedient to criminals who are controlling the “covid” narrative. Their “power” over us is only an illusion that depends on our obedience. If we refuse to do what they say, they don’t have any “power” over us. Protesters around the world showed a great example of that.
    Talk to people, share informative articles (or any useful information) to govt. officials, your friends and family, etc., to make “believers” question the “covid” narrative, because it’s up to us to spread information about what’s really going on and mainstream media will never broadcast any of that.. The outcome of this event is not set in stone.

  15. Pam says:

    We can’t count on Attorney General William Barr to uphold the law. He’s a fraud. He’s CIA and always has been. He was intimately involved in the Mena, Arkansas operation involving Clinton and Bush, cocaine and money laundering. He set up CIA proprietaries to accomplish this, such as Air America and Southern Air Transport, using his position to cover for Bush when the operation fell apart. (Source: Compromised: Clinton, Bush and The CIA – written by Terry Reed, who was recruited by Oliver North to be train pilots in Mena) When Congress was considering Barr’s appointment by Trump there were indications members of Congress are onto this man. Here’s a quote from p 540 of Compromised. “It was William P. Barr, who became President George Bush’s Attorney General in 1991, an apparatchik who always has a way of emerging from the shadows when Bush needs his trail covered. The 43 year-old lawyer and ex-CIA analyst, little known outside Beltway legal circles, had nonetheless an uncanny way of crisscrossing Bush’s path at critical times. This confluence of careers within the world of intelligence became the precursor that empowered him to become the dark overseer of the cabal that subverted the U.S. Constitution he took an oath as Attorney General to uphold.” Reed states Barr joined the CIA in 1973 where he met Bush who was director from 1976-77. In 1978 he joined a Washington law firm, “very much aligned with the CIA and with a history of providing criminal defense for intelligence agents.” He was on Reagan’s staff 1980-1983 and then went back to the law firm. Reed asserts this lower profile made it easier for Barr to work undetected on CIA/White House projects involving cocaine and arms smuggling that sidestepped Congress’s Boland Amendment. In 1990 Barr was back in the Justice Department under H.W. Bush and “drafted the legal opinion justifying the invasion of Panama and the arrest of Panamanian General Manuel Noreiga, a paid CIA asset. And it was Noriega who claimed it was the CIA, not he, that was trafficking in cocaine through his country.” Because of his knowledge about Mena, Reed wondered if the U.S. invasion of Panama “had been designed to cover the agency’s trafficking trail and to silence Noriega about the CIA involvement in Bill Clinton’s state.” Two other books were written about this time period that also reveal our government’s cocaine trafficking with sad consequences for the authors: Dark Alliance by Gary Webb and The Franklin Cover-Up by John DeCamp. William Barr associates with evil men. When he replaced Sessions as AG he was brought in for a reason.

    I think it makes you seem smarter when you write like this and therefore the info that you are giving is heard as possibly true.
    I know the info is right but most people follow the crowd without thoughts like the crowd is or could be wrong. They would find it hard to listen to anything written that makes fun of them or insults them even factual evidence depending on the way its presented. I am full of flaws so I could be wrong about all said above.
