The real pandemic is an outbreak of PCR testing

And you can do something about this

I keep hammering on the test because it is the main piece of public fakery that holds this whole pandemic illusion in place.

If it falls, the illusion disappears.

In numerous past articles, I’ve shown the PCR test is useless and deceptive, from several angles.

Recently, I wrote about a Florida directive, issued by the governor and his department of public health: it forces labs to reveal the number of cycles at which each PCR test is run. [1]

A cycle is a quantum leap in amplification of the original sample taken from the patient.

Anthony Fauci himself has asserted that 35 cycles or higher makes the test result useless. Yet the FDA and the CDC recommend running the test at up to 40 cycles. This has opened the door to millions of false positives. [2] [3]

The cherry on the cake? Test labs never tell doctors or their patients how many cycles are deployed in the test. [4]

My first point today is this: if other states wake up and follow Florida’s lead, the whole false edifice of the test would collapse.

My second point: at labs all over the country (and the world), thousands and thousands of PCR tech employees understand the con, the hustle, and the crime—because they are participating in it EVERY DAY.

They are all silent.

If 20 of them stepped forward and told the truth, we would see the PCR test wobble and the fakery called “case numbers” and “pandemic” and “lockdowns” start to crumble.

These PCR techs would confess that they’re running the test at 40 cycles and therefore the results are MEANINGLESS.

So we need pressure on these PCR techs. Lots and lots of pressure. From us. From court cases. From every source we can muster.

The PCR techs are good Germans. They’re complicit and silent. THIS HAS TO END.

In 1992, strategist James Carville helped Bill Clinton win the presidency by suggesting that, coming out of a recession, the campaign should use the slogan, “It’s the economy, stupid!” It worked like a charm.

Now, the slogans/memes should be: IT’S THE CYCLES, STUPID! and IT’S THE TEST, STUPID!

The test spits out false positives like a fire hose, creating the impression of escalating COVID case numbers, which are used as the rationale for the lockdowns and the economic devastation.

Without those fake numbers, the authorities have NOTHING.

So get busy. Get the message about the tests out to one and all. Be relentless. Don’t curl up into a ball when people reject what you’re communicating. Keep going. Expose the fraudulent test cycles. Point to the PCR techs at labs as complicit enablers in the ongoing crime.

Here is my article from several weeks ago about Fauci and the test:

Smoking gun: Fauci states COVID test has fatal flaw; confession from the “beloved” expert of experts [5]

The COVID delusion is finished, blown apart

by Jon Rappoport

December 17, 2020

OK, here we go. Smoking gun. Jackpot.

Right from the horse’s mouth. Right from the man we’re told is the number-one COVID expert in the nation. What Fauci says is golden truth.

Well, how about THIS?

July 16, 2020, podcast, “This Week in Virology”: Tony Fauci makes a point of saying the PCR COVID test is useless and misleading when the test is run at “35 cycles or higher.” A positive result, indicating infection, cannot be accepted or believed.

Here, in techno-speak, is an excerpt from Fauci’s key quote (starting at about the 4-minute mark [3]):

“…If you get [perform the test at] a cycle threshold of 35 or more…the chances of it being replication-confident [aka accurate] are miniscule…you almost never can culture virus [detect a true positive result] from a 37 threshold cycle…even 36…”

Each “cycle” of the test is a quantum leap in amplification and magnification of the test specimen taken from the patient.

Too many cycles, and the test will turn up all sorts of irrelevant material that will be wrongly interpreted as relevant.

That’s called a false positive.

What Fauci failed to say on the video is: the FDA, which authorizes the test for public use, recommends the test should be run up to 40 cycles. Not 35.

Therefore, all labs in the US that follow the FDA guideline are knowingly or unknowingly participating in fraud. Fraud on a monstrous level, because…

Millions of Americans are being told they are infected with the virus on the basis of a false positive result, and…

The total number of COVID cases in America—which is based on the test—is a gross falsity.

The lockdowns and other restraining measures are based on these fraudulent case numbers.

Let me back up and run that by you again. Fauci says the test is useless when it’s run at 35 cycles or higher. The FDA says run the test up to 40 cycles, in order to determine whether the virus is there. This is the crime in a nutshell.

If anyone in the White House has a few brain cells to rub together, pick up a giant bullhorn and start revealing the truth to the American people.

“Hello, America, you’ve been tricked, lied to, conned, and taken for a devastating ride. On the basis of fake science, the country was locked down.”

If anyone in the Congress has a few brain cells operating, pull Fauci into a televised hearing and, in ten minutes, make mincemeat out of the fake science that has driven this whole foul, stench-ridden assault on the US economy and its citizens.

All right, here are two chunks of evidence for what I’ve written above. First, we have a CDC quote on the FDA website, in a document titled [6] [6a] [6b]: “CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel For Emergency Use Only.” See pdf page 38 (doc page 37). This document is marked, “Effective: 12/01/2020.” That means, even though the virus is being referred to by its older name, the document is still relevant as of Dec 2020. “For Emergency Use Only” refers to the fact that the FDA has certified the PCR test under a traditional category called “Emergency Use Authorization.”

FDA: “…a specimen is considered positive for 2019-nCoV [virus] if all 2019-nCoV marker (N1, N2) cycle threshold growth curves cross the threshold line within 40.00 cycles ([less than] 40.00 Ct).”

Naturally, MANY testing labs reading this guideline would conclude, “Well, to see if the virus is there in a patient, we should run the test all the way to 40 cycles. That’s the official advice.”

Then we have a New York Times article (August 29/updated September 17) headlined: “Your coronavirus test is positive. Maybe it shouldn’t be.” [4] Here are money quotes:

“Most tests set the limit at 40 [cycles]. A few at 37.”

“Set the limit” would usually mean, “We’re going to look all the way to 40 cycles, to see if the virus is there.”

The Times: “This number of amplification cycles needed to find the virus, called the cycle threshold, is never included in the results sent to doctors and coronavirus patients…”

Boom. That’s the capper, the grand finale. Labs don’t or won’t reveal their collusion in this crime.

Get the picture?

I hope so.

If a lawyer won’t go to court with all this, or if a judge won’t pay attention and see the light, they should be stripped of their jobs and sent to the Arctic to sell snow.

    Beyond fake, unreliable, bogus test results, the purpose remains, like a trail, poisonous, deceitful, vicious record of a crime.

    The truth is as obvious as it is still hidden under all the mainstream media lies, the social media censorship and the interests of moguls, pharma and politicians. Maybe a phone line would help, where insiders would be able to denounce the culprits?

    We need enforcers! Judges, militaries, sheriffs, people to act on the reports of crimes…

  2. James R Wilson says:

    I think there is something to this. The only thing that doesn’t make sense tho, is that hospitalizations are increasing and decreasing along with positive test rates. If people are getting false positives, they wouldn’t feel ill, so why would they check into a hospital?

    • Because it’s flu season.

      • Hank says:

        Since mankind invented governments numbers/stats have always been used to sway public opinion or just outright control the masses. Just recently we saw how the numbers game allowed Biden to “win” the election- no accountability. Suspicions do occur when a hospital reportedly gets paid $50,000 for each “Covid” patient. Keeping people out of the hospital for non-Covid-related symptoms or sicknesses to me is about the same as those GOP vote monitors being kept away from the vote counting. What’s REAALY going on in all these hospitals supposedly inundated with massive cases of Covid?

    • CJ76 says:

      When a relative was feeling sick recently he was told his l personal doc wouldn’t see him until he got a covid test.

      The test facilities in the Chicago suburbs were filled to capacity and appointments were full for the next few days. The people who showed up at the test site were being told if they felt ill they should go to the ER. Voilá you have covid patients!

      Nurses I have heard interviewed say the covid patients currently in their hospitals don’t really need to be hospitalized.

      In fact two people I know who went to the er were given a bit of oxygen and were sent home with no meds and no prescriptions. Told to quarantine and drink plenty of fluids. A pandemic so deadly they aren’t even given medicine, lol.

      And along the lines of the question Jon posed, why hasn’t a lawyer filed a class action suit on behalf of employees forced to wear a mask when that violates OSHA rules?

    • Jon F E says:

      People are sick because its flu season. Just because they are shuffling around numbers doesnt mean we are in a pandemic. If we really go deeper into the heart of the lie, contagion has never been proven. Louis Pasteur, the father of germ theory, spent his entire life trying to prove bacteria and viruses are the cause of illness.. He fraudulently ran experiments and fudged data to peove this. On his death bed he is quoted saying,”germs are nothing, terrain is everything.” He even went to the extent to have all of his journals filled with his life long data never to be revealed. This however was his downfall because they were released by one of his family members and examined in by the French in the early 1900s. Bacteria and virues help clean the tpxic load of a cell they do not cause disease. The toxic overload from the terrain and environment being flooded with environmental toxins is the true cause of these symptoms and dis-ease. We must dissolve this lie in modern medicine before anything will be fixed or understood.

      • Post Hoc says:

        Jon F E,
        You are so right.
        The reason we are ill and wretched is because the body is doing a get well number by raising the temperature and flushing toxins via the lymph, the microbiome called into damage control and the exosomes clearing out the detritus…makes people quite sick but it is not Covid!

    • martin says:

      Some people think they are ill, through all the fear and propaganda they have been subjected to.

    • Marilyn Shepherd says:

      The CDC are labelling all flu, pneumonia and so called covid into one thing

    • MPK says:

      Reimbursement is higher with the Covid-19 diagnosis. This is an attempt by medical institutions to regain significant income that was lost while lockdowns prevented elective procedures and discouraged ED and clinic visits.

      Moreover, hospitals decreased the number of beds decades ago because of “insufficient” insurance reimbursement. The hospital bed shortage was created by the business people who run hospitals, not by staff who actually care for and treat patients.

    • From Elsewhere says:

      Half of people in hospitals are there because of the panic and havoc brought by alarming news. For any cough, headache, etc. people go to hospitals, where, guess what happens, they are exposed to the hospitals’ hazards, treatments with side effects, in addition to discomfort and even fear of getting worse… or dead. Total number of “cases” versus total population should give you a logical conclusion, having in mind that total “cases” are cummulated since February-March (9-10 months of counting!

      • Dar says:

        In my city, people are being given an infusion if they have covid. Some are forced. I was told it is man-made antibodies and takes 3 hours.
        A friend mentioned her granddaughter was forced to take the IV as she is overweight but otherwise in great health (22). She was also not allowed to have anyone there and not allowed to use her phone…now that is interesting.

    • Mos Craciun says:

      You should put the steps in chronological order :

      1) people feel ill ( cold, flu, fever, etc.) as they did all their life 2) because of that PLUS the panic, they check into the hospital 3) the hospital performs “the test” and of course is “positive” ( money talk) 4) diagnostic of “covid” is registered ( money talk) . After that, during hospitalisation , the banal condition is worsened by the hospital ( money talk), then ICU ( money talk) , intubation and death (money talk)

      You also neglected the fact that for certain categories ( including old age homecare) the “test” is mandatory even without any symptom…

    • Larry C says:

      One reason that hospitalizations are increasing is that more “electable” surgeries are being performed… surgeries that have been postponed for months due to the putative pandemic.

    • Lyn P says:

      Likely that is too simple of a correlation. SO many other factors and variables.

      In this last 9 months of distortion, also it’s been shown how hospitals are manipulating care, and probably admittance, decisions based on need for reimbursements lost in the wake of a forced crash in regular patient census.

      Don’t forget then layering on of LIES regarding the healthcare system by the schmedia as was used back in the early part of the scamdemic.

      It’s all such a massive shuck and jive it’s majorly disturbing.

    • adam eason says:

      because of underlining illnesses, everyone has some small amounts of covid in their system, but if you suffer from any health problem like a weak heart, or a poor immune system, it will make it worse, with the new rules in place at every hospital, it does not matter what your illness is, if you have any traces of covid, then you will be listed as a covid patient, even if your illness is due to something completely different.

  3. Lawrence Beck says:

    Thank you for this piece, Jon.
    I’m curious as to whether anyone has done any research into the possibility of foul play in the August 7, 2019 death of Kary Mullis, inventor of the RT PCR test? Had Mullis been alive in 2020 he would have been the first to speak out against using this test for diagnosing cv-19.
    It just seems too coincidental that the person who developed this test conveniently passed two months before Event 201, which forecast this plandemic and did nothing to prepare for it. Then again, given that it has the same mortality outcome as the flu there’s not much that could be planned other than what they’ve done: hyping the event like no other and locking down the entire world.

    • CJ76 says:

      Thank you for asking this!!! I totally agree the timing of the death is so suspicious and he had to be ‘gotten out of the way’ for this sham to be pulled off with any degree of success.

      He died of pneumonia allegedly which could have been introduced?

    • wanda says:

      Lawrence, we’re on the same page.
      Yesterday, I learned Brandy Vaughn, a Merck whistleblower who became an outspoken advocate for safe vaccines and founded Learn The Risk to fight the wave of mandatory vaccination laws initiated by the pharmaceutical industry, died suddenly on Dec. 7.
      I added her name to my list of 2019-2020 obituaries on which I find mysterious.
      To name a few: Kary Mullis who died in August 2019, of pneumonia. What kind of pneumonia? As the inventor of the PCR technology, I am sure he would have a few things to say about the PCR test for Covid. Among other things, he denied the evidence that HIV causes AIDS.
      Bing Liu, a computational biologist who was studying the coronavirus at the University of Pittsburg was shot in his home in May 2020 at the age of 37.
      James Taylor who died in April 2020, at the age of 40, cause of death unknown. He was also a computational biologist and professor at John Hopkins University.
      Shuping “Sunshine” Wang, a physician, researcher, and public health whistleblower during an AIDS epidemic in China, died in September 2019 while hiking. She was 59.
      Supposedly, police is investigating Brandy’s death. What happens to these investigations?

      • Mos Craciun says:

        @ Wanda It is strange, to say the least, that you didn’t mention “death” of Frank Plummer , a key player in the scamdemic …Did you skip his name on purpose ?

    • ele says:

      Thank you for your post. Interesting fellow. Also his death.

    • Mos Craciun says:

      Mental experiments :
      1) let’s presume that he was assassinated ( shot in daylight ) and the perpetrator caught and prosecuted . Do you think that will change the present situation in the world ?
      2) let’s presume that he is alive and speaks out against his method for being misused as a test for diagnosis. Do you think that will change the present deadly farce played now over the planet ?

      By the way ,he spoke out before , explained that his discovery is only a technique to be used exclusively in fundamental research and not for clinical diagnosis . He did that in relation with HIV “virus” ….So what ? Did it change anything ?

  4. wanda says:

    Some may be waking up in New Jersey. Senator Pennacchio in a letter to NJ Health Commissioner wrote “I am writing to ask you, if you have not already done so, to collate all testing results done in New Jersey and their respective cycling rates and to please share that information with our office. Is it possible to determine if those rates correlate to an active infection, asymptomatic carrier or merely an exposure to a carrier? I am also asking that the New Jersey Department of Health promulgate rules that would mandate each COVID PCR test identify and share with both the patient and New Jersey Department of Health, the number of cycles that was done for each individual PCR test.
    Finally, working with the State’s epidemiologist, I would ask, if you have not already done so, to examine the amount of PCR test cycles and determine what if any correlation exists between those cycles and:
    actual COVID infections
    infected asymptomatic carriers
    non-infected carriers
    Please share that information with my office. I await your response.”

    I am not in his district (R-26) but I sent an email including the video of Fauci from July on “This week in Virology”. If anyone here is in from NJ and in his district, contact him!!!

    • Donna says:

      It’s flu season. People who are getting sick with the flu think they have covid19 because the media proclaimed a second wave. That’s my guess, anyway.

      4Deaths with confirmed or presumed COVID-19, pneumonia, or influenza, coded to ICD–10 codes U07.1 o

      Now I am in Australia and found this that exposes the con, then the NYC dashboard changed again this week, it will blow your mind

      COVID-19 cases and deaths are categorized as probable or confirmed.

      Confirmed Case: Positive result from a molecular test, such as a PCR test. Unless specifically labeled as “probable cases,” data on cases are for confirmed cases only.

      Probable Case: Defined as any of the following:
      Positive antigen test result
      Person has symptoms and was exposed to a confirmed case
      Person died and their cause of death on the death certificate is COVID-19 or similar, but a positive molecular test is not on record

      Confirmed Death: Death within 60 days of a positive molecular test – in other words if they have a positive pointless test on 1 June and die on 30 July after being run over by a bus they are called covid or equivalent

      Probable Death: Cause of death on the death certificate is COVID-19 or similar, but a positive molecular test is not on record And this, if you have PCR test on 1 June and go into hospital with a heart attack on 13 June you are called covid admission = Hospitalizations
      People hospitalized within 14 days of diagnosis

    • ak in vt says:

      IFI (influenza like illness/flu) count was down about 62% last week. That should answer your question. If it doesn’t:

      1. there are many times hospitals are overflowing with patients.
      2. whenever a person is entered into the hospital as a “covid” patient the hospital receives a premium from Medicare or Medicaid (big incentive of $19,000 average). This means that when in most cases you’d be sent home if you had the flu (unless you were frail or elderly or had pre-existing ocnditions that could be dangerous to you if you had an influenza like illness).

      3. Look at the number of ICU patients — that shows seriousness of any disease.

      I do not wish to argue about whether flu exists or not, at this time. Let’s just call it IFI (influenza like illness) as the CDC calls “the flu.”

      Hope that helps, Joe. Your question was valid and good.

    • NC says:

      Jon has commented on that numerous times if you follow the thread. It is NOT one thing

    • Andy says:

      The Australian Aborigines have a practice called “pointing the bone”, usually carried out by their tribal witch doctors. If the witch doctor “points the bone” at you, the belief that you are going to die is so powerful that within a period of time, the believer of the practice keels over and dies. It is no different with this. You’re a believer in Covid19. You know no better. You get the PCR test. It returns a positive, regardless if it’s a “real” positive or false positive. You now believe you have the dreaded Covid19. The belief is so powerful that you develop “symptoms” and are admitted to hospital. Hence your increase in hospitalisations.

      If I were to have the PCR test and return a “positive”, regardless if it’s a false positive or a “real” positive, I would be fine. I know Covid19 is not a thing, it doesn’t exist. Hence I’ll be an “asymptomatic” case.

      The elites in charge of this fiasco are masters of psychological manipulation.

    • SP in NE says:

      “Asymptomatic cases” are meaningless. If there actually were a SARS CoV-2 virus (which Jon has proved at best has not been proven to exist and at worst, and most likely, doesn’t exist at all) asymptomatic people would have so little of the virus to not be contagious. That’s running at the bogus (admitted by Lord Fauci himself) 35+ cycles. That won’t even prove there is a minute amount of actual virus. It could be dead viral material in your body from a year ago. Namely, this is the heart of the whole scam. Your immune system has fought and killed the virus and hence you couldn’t spread it. You’re not contagious.
      As far as hospitalizations, since you can’t prove any of them are for this virus (since the whole test is bogus) then people are going to hospitals for many reasons. The rates you see now claimed (including ICU admissions) are NORMAL for this time of year. And also how much can be connected to people testing “positive” and being sick with a multitude of reasons (Americans are VERY unhealthy in general. Even at younger ages) then going into the hospital and are suddenly another “Covid hospitalization”. And also the mind is very powerful. It can help heal and also help get sick, even die. Psychosomatic is the word. How many of the “Covid deaths” fall into this category? Probably all of the ones not just falsely labeled as such. The flu suddenly is not even being counted (after we were warned about the “twindemic”). And the fear just drives it all. It’s the greatest psy-op in history. Hence the perma-smerk on King of the nerds Bill Gates face every time he’s interviewed. What’s so funny Bill?
      Anyway hope that helps. I’m sure other people here can add even more

    • Lyn P says:

      It’s flu season! Positives on this test mean nothing in the real world of health and medicine. Part of the psy-op is to get people to make inquiries such as yours and lose the point.

      Pretty much all the “data” about CV “illness” and anything related to that this year amount to further “spins of the top.”

    • george says:

      How do you explain that there are ZERO deaths from flu and other respiratory diseases this year? how do you explain a drop in death caused by cancer, heart stroke.. ?

  7. Jim says:

    People are absolutely refusing to listen to logic. They’re far too addicted to the fear porn. Emotional arguments might work, but I don’t think so. The majority simply refuse to think for themselves and will only accept information from the so-called authorative sources.

  8. Andy says:

    The sad thing is the Eugenics crowd will get us one way or another- kill off the people who treat the sick, then the sick will die on their own. Evil but brilliant.

  9. BDBinc says:

    The whole hoax is based on the Zhu and cohorts 10th Jan computer generated genome ” sars cov2″ and even that fraud used the reference-less fraudulent PCR test in order to misdiagnose someone with ” covID19″ so that they could use their dna.

    All the ” covid19 ” studies are baseless and use the PCR test .

  10. Phil Pokatello says:

    I have been saying this for a long time. The PCR test developer said it should not be used for these purposes, period. Also, we are told that the PCR test is the gold standard of tests. How can the “gold standard” test be that when it doesn’t know what to compare the results to? The SarsCoV-2 virus has never been isolated (purified).

  11. Eluard says:

    Jon’s been hammering on the PCR scam since Cleopatra tried to vaccinate Marc Anthony for that strange snake-transmitted viral disease.

    But I might add that it’s not just “the cycles of amplification.” I don’t think you can see anything–or you can see *Everything*–at any level of enlargement.

    In udder woids, the PCR has nothing at all to do, as dear Kary told us, with looking at infection or disease. Nothing, zilch, nada, nyet, rien. I’ve tried to explain this PCR sham to people, from every angle, and some sort of get it and many do not. Like just the idea of questioning the sacred methodologies of our masters is a heresy, a blasphemy. Like I should be speaking in a whisper.

    Dom’t get tested. This should be the slogan.

    • Jim says:

      This scamdemic has destroyed what little faith I had in people. Thinking is hard work, and they’ll have nothing to do with it. It’s so much easier to just sit back and let the authorities tell you what to think. These people deserve the vaccine. Decisions have consequences.

  12. Michael says:

    But, but Jon Reuters fact checked the famous Kary Mullis and they say the test is accurate.

    Any thinking person can read this and choke on the contradictions. The below is considered science!?

    Social media users have been sharing a quote attributed to the inventor of the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test, currently being used to detect COVID-19, which says “PCR tests cannot detect free infectious viruses at all”. This quote appears not to be a direct quote from the inventor, Kary Mullis, has lost some context and does not mean COVID-19 testing is fraudulent, as suggested by some social media posts.

    The posts have been shared over 1,000 times on Facebook (here , here , here).

    The post begins with the words “COVID-19 TEST a FRAUD?”, then introduces the alleged quote from Mullis, who invented the PCR method in 1985 and was recognized for this achievement by being awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1993 (here).

    However, the quote is actually from an article written by John Lauritsen in December 1996 about HIV and AIDS, not COVID-19 (here).

    The context around the quote shows Lauritsen is not saying PCR tests do not work. Instead, he is clarifying that PCR identifies substances qualitatively not quantitatively, detecting the genetic sequences of viruses, but not the viruses themselves: “PCR is intended to identify substances qualitatively, but by its very nature is unsuited for estimating numbers. Although there is a common misimpression that the viral load tests actually count the number of viruses in the blood, these tests cannot detect free, infectious viruses at all; they can only detect proteins that are believed, in some cases wrongly, to be unique to HIV. The tests can detect genetic sequences of viruses, but not viruses themselves.”

    Even if Mullis had voiced a similar statement before his death in 2019, this quote does not mean the PCR test is unable to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 – the virus that causes COVID-19 – rather that it cannot determine whether the individual tested is infectious.

    The PCR test is the preferred COVID-19 testing method in England ( It detects the presence of the virus by amplifying the virus’genetic material to a point where it can be detected by scientists (

    A spokesperson for Public Health England told Reuters why PCR tests are being used widely in England: “Molecular diagnostic tests, such as real-time PCR, are the gold standard methods for identifying individuals with an active viral infection, such as SARS-CoV-2 (the cause of COVID-19 disease), in their respiratory tract. These tests are rapid and produce results in real-time.

    “It is important to note that detecting viral material by PCR does not indicate that the virus is fully intact and infectious, i.e. able to cause infection in other people. The isolation of infectious virus from positive individuals requires virus culture methods. These methods can only be conducted in laboratories with specialist containment facilities and are time consuming and complex.”

    Misleading. The quote regarding the limitations of PCR tests appears not to be directly from Mullis, but in any case is not evidence the test is fraudulent. PCR tests are being used widely in England to show that SARS-CoV-2 viral genetic material is present in the patient.

    And here is what Kary Mullis thought about Fauci.

      Funny. I watched a video in which he contradicts the fact checker. The statement was not taken out of context. Though reuters certainly twisted his words into a pretzel.

    What chance do we have when people are lining up to take a test that will tell them if they have a flu or cold, whatever they may be, every person knows what flu/cold symptoms are, so why are these people lining up like lemmings, it makes no sense, after 11 months of this garbage I feel there are people who don’t want this to end, and I am not talking about the evil ones who are behind it, I mean ordinary people, they want to believe the utter nonsense they are told, they think they are part of something, they want to belong to something, I know it sounds crazy but I think it appeals to certain people, I still think the death of Kary Mullis was suspicious.

      Sadly I’ve learned how true this is. A good long-time friend meets the full stereotype you describe as well as “virtue signaler.” An attempted conversation on the merits or not of this testing would be totally lost.

    There is only one little problem to contend with:

    You can have all the facts, and all the incontrovertible evidence in hand – even from official sources – YET – the public will STILL be none the wiser for it. – The “media” will simply do, as they have always done – ignore it and demonize it.

    Just look at Twit’s latest admission of a change to their “community standards” and whatever other policies – “They” are no going to remove ALL comment that even so much as hints that there “may result adverse effects to vaccines” – as “disinformation” (their excuse).


    This means “taking it to the streets”, with paper in hand.

    Most folks I meet still have never even heard of the Great Barrington Declaration! There are hundreds-of-thousands of signatures to it by now. Again, nary a word about its existence.

    Time to rupture this “information vapor-lock”!

    I’ve been reading this blog since the start, and it really provided different view on current situation.

    However, even though PCR test is really fishy, you can not ignore simple fact that there is some decease going on. You never explained this in a way that seemed acceptable to me.

    You mentioned there is different cause to all these cases, but that is simply not true, there are bunch of people with weird pneumonias that didn’t happen in that way before. When you see this happening to people you know, you know that there has to be something going on.

    • Lyn P says:

      1) are total U.S. deaths up or down this year compared to average? Compared to 2019?

      Easy to find

      2) what are the precise qualitative differences in types of decease (sic) that you mention is going on?

      Pretty easy to find theories on this, you no doubt have seen such if you’ve been researching for 9 months. But do not expect the medical establishment to ever be working for actual truth in this regard. Quite the opposite.

    • Madness says:

      Radiation? DEW? Can burn holes into to your organs. There were 220% more deaths ‘to Covid’ where 5G were up and running. I found the article with maps to prove this on SOTN.

  17. Typhoid Larry says:

    These are Antibody tests.
    They don’t test for presence of viruses.

    Even the disclaimer on the tests offers insight, that most people are seemingly ignoring:

    “Antibody tests have not
    been shown to definitively diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 infection.”
    “Results from antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 infection or to
    inform infection status.”
    “Positive results could also be due to past or present infection with non-SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strains.”

    There’s an interesting study titled:
    Antibody tests for identification of current and past infection with SARS-CoV-2, DOI: 10.1002/14651858.CD013652,
    that states:
    “Antibody tests are likely to have a useful role for detecting previous SARS-CoV-2 infection
    if used 15 or more days after the onset of symptoms. However, the duration of antibody rises is currently unknown, and we found very little data beyond 35 days post-symptom onset. We are
    therefore uncertain about the utility of these tests for seroprevalence surveys for public health
    management purposes.”

    Thus no one really knows anything about the potential usefulness of these tests for anything, but they’re still being relied on by a completely failing medical industry, one that is being controlled by large investment banks, and milked for large-profit margins.

    It’s really concerning that our medical “experts” are just performing systematic tasks, without really even knowing what they’re doing, and without having any real expertise.

    I’m pro-business, and all for making profit, but when profit is the only concern, and virtual monopolies exist, disaster is sure to follow.

    Which is the current state of our failing medical industry.

    The honest truth is that Doctors and healthcare workers are well-paid simply because they divert massive capital to the Aristocrats at the top, most often without any questions as to why they’re doing what they’re doing.
    They are good, obedient little workers.

    In an age when so many economic sectors are struggling, and only 4-5 are making profit (as part of the ongoing scam of the economic “recovery” that never was), those Aristocrats at the top are trying as hard as they can to milk those few industries…..extracting every last dollar they possibly can.

  18. Lewis Papier says:

    The PCR results are used to inflate the numbers of “cases,” not deaths or hospitalizations of really sick people. The increased numbers of “cases” are used to justify the lockdowns. They cannot be used to determine “infection.” The cases in the hospitals seem like they’ve increased only because the doctors play down pre-existing conditions as the cause of death or serious illness and claim Covid is ALWAYS the prime factor in killing people or “pushing them over the edge.” They always seem to claim that ALL the cases they’re seeing now in the hospitals ALWAYS are much worse than a bad case of the flu. That’s kind of hard to believe because before March of this year, I’m sure you would have seen some really bad cases of respiratory illness in the hospitals which were similar to symptoms of really sick people currently hospitalized (the doctors of course deny that). But even if they could prove the symptoms are truly worse than before, maybe there are other reasons such as radiation poisoning from 5G or other environmental causes. A few days ago I submitted a Time Magazine article from two years ago about how the doctors were all screaming how they were overwhelmed by serious flu cases filling their wards. I bet if you compared what you were seeing back then, there wouldn’t be much difference than what you are seeing now. Finally, there is never any mention of iatrogenic disorders–illness caused by the medical treatment alleged Covid patients are now receiving in the hospitals throughout the world. Ventilators and anti-viral medication can be very strong stuff to take especially when you’ve entered the hospital with the thought that your death might be imminent.

    Thank you once again Jon Rappoport for helping people to be empowered with the ammunition of knowledge to be able to fight back vs staying helplessly paralyzed with fear and be controlled by idiots.

    “And you can DO something about this” Action will lead us out of this trap.

    Action is the only thing to do because we don’t know how much time we have left before _____?_________ is implemented next.

    Even the simple act of informing the grocery store employees -many of whom are made to take weekly PCR tests-to ask the tech what cycle he/she is running their test at. This will start stirring up more questioning and public debate.

    For those of you above that asked about the increased hospitalizations. Do not believe the information the press gives you. I work at a hospital in information technology and we are busy this time of the year with or without covid. Right now as a matter of fact we are quite busy. Yes there are some covid patients or at least people who have tested positive for covid and are hospitalized. But we have a lot more people with other conditions or ailments completely unrelated to covid Who are currently admitted in our hospital. We have currently 2 patients diagnosed with covid in the ICU but they had pre-existing Conditions and have had Pneumonia regularly for several years. So based on this information the best advice I can give you is that do not believe any of the Information or statistics that you hear from media outlets.

    What? Is the WHO making changes to the test including providing the CT value to the healthcare provider?
    A December 14 Information Notice for IVD users states:

    “Advice on action to be taken by users:

    1. Please read carefully the IFU in its entirety.
    2. Contact your local representative if there is any aspect of the IFU that is unclear to you.
    3. Check the IFU for each incoming consignment to detect any changes to the IFU.
    4. Consider any positive result (SARS-CoV-2 detected) or negative results (SARS-CoV-2 not detected) in combination with specimen type, clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.
    5. Provide the Ct value in the report to the requesting healthcare provider.

    i recently spoke on the phone to one of those lab techs running the pcr’s. with a sense of urgency he said he had impt information which could only be shared with the director or administrator of our facility. when pressed, he said it had to do with some positive lab results for a couple employees. i asked for his phone number and his response was he was “real busy” and might not be able to answer the phone because his job reequired that he “do things like take a break and take out the trash.” that did not sit well with me. in the end, it turned out he was calling the wrong state. i felt he knew what he was doing and was completely out of his element. i do not know what it would take to get these people to come forward.

    Apparently, up to 50 Percent of the people don’t want this “warp speed” untested abomination in their body, that is encouraging. It is evidence that some indeed still have a couple “brain cells left to rub together.” (LOL)

    Oh that we could fan and stoke the tiny embers of those little fledgling cells, and say to the blind-compliers “Hello?, do you see that a 99 percent recovery rate and 100 Percent missing flu stats at cdc ….can show you the big fat lie you’ve been sold on this fake ruse? Did any flu shot in history ever “cure” or “prevent” the flu…ever? No, it didn’t. So Can you see it yet, are the dots connecting?

    Are you still in there? Did you pull the plug on your TV hypnosis box yet, so that you can think by yourself again, without big pappy king butt-nuggets dictating a false reality to you? It helps those synapses fire up again, you know, to think. Oh. So you still believe the masks and shot are to protect you, and the gov is benevolent, warm, and fuzzy? I see.

    Well, it is your decision, after all. I hope you will grant me the same liberty in freedom of choice and health, yes?

    Oh, you won’t? You’re calling the stasi in, Because you say we all need to live according to your lame-azz limited knowledge and absence of independent research? Oh.

    So, if I understand it correctly,…..I should endanger my health, take a shot in the dark because it would please your need to comply and be obedient to illogical overlords who have no accountability, no skin in the game, and who violate human and constitutional rights with impunity? Hmmmm. Sorry, Dupa. No can Do! (hypothetical rant, of course) 😉

    The RT-PCR is NOT a test. So why call it one? It simply yields amplified, often contaminated, genetic fragments, which could be anything. No wonder farm animals, vegetables, fruit and even motor oil can generate a fake positive result.

    Since CV is a NON-EXISTENT genetic structure, the RT-PCR process CANNOT magically amplify CV into existence.

    The more interesting question is: Why is the RT-PCR process primed with chromosome 8, which is found in all humans? After amplification, can the existence of chromosome 8 even be verified? Or is its existence simply ( even randomly ) assumed?

  30. Justin says:

    This is how they are going to justify the efficacy of the vaccine. States will start reporting PCR tests results with 35 amplifications or below (the way it should have been done all along), and you will see fewer and fewer cases. This test adjustment coincidentally is being made as the vaccine is rolling out. Vaccine = fewer cases. Not because the vax works, but only because the test parameters have changed.

  31. Cato's Ghost says:

    I’ve got absolutely NO stake in the “covid” event.
    I’m simply a knowledge-seeker, one that likes to discover the truths, whatever those may be, and regardless how unsettling.

    I also worked for over 25 years as a PR Professional.
    For those that don’t what PR is, it’s creating Marketing, and distributing/promulgating that Marketing, often as “news”.
    For one example, it’s things like adding the word/title “Philanthropist” to the Wiki articles of billionaires, or other powerful or well-known people, to cast them in a positive light.

    And I’m not necessarily proud of that past work.

    One of my industry specialties was Medical & Healthcare.
    I used to create highly-favorable Marketing pieces for hospitals and clinics that had poor reputations, and get those pieces distributed to newspapers, radio and television stations, for them to print/broadcast as “news”.

    The more of this PR propaganda I could disseminate, and the more often I could get it printed/broadcast, the more people would believe it.
    That is one of the ways PR works.

    And Politicians and Bureaucrats are NOT above the fray.
    They are just as prone to this propaganda as is the general public.
    In fact, much PR is directed right at those policy makers, to influence them first (which is exactly what Lobbyists do).

    I would also often act as a Liaison between the “news” press and my clients.
    For example, when a medical client of mine (a hospital) had several deaths at their facility, due to their negligence, I arranged meetings between the CEO of that hospital and the GM’s of those “news” & media outlets.
    I would arrange for that hospital to agree to a high-dollar advertising campaign with those “news” media outlets, in exchange for those “news” media burying that story about that hospitals negligence.

    The hospital got good press, the newspapers, radio & tv stations got large advertising contracts.

    This is often the reality of how “news” works.
    Money talks.
    Certain wealthy & powerful people will use their money & power to influence & determine “news”.

    It’s even worse now that the largest investment banks of the largest hospitals & clinics & pharmaceutical co’s. are similarly the largest investors of the largest media companies.

    Those media companies have a vested interest in protecting that medical industry.

    This is just one of the consequences of consolidated & concentrated wealth.

    People need to wake up, and understand what’s going on, and why.

    The world needs far more people that can ignore that PR clutter, and learn to find relevant empirical data, stats & info for themselves.

    Don’t believe just because you want to believe.
    Believe because there is valid evidence for doing so.
    And even if you believe something, keep searching for relevant data, even if it contradicts your beliefs.
    That is the only way to find truths.

    PCR Cycles are thermal cycles going from warm to near boiling and back in about 1 minute. No normal DNA can tolerate that heat, so synthetic nucleic acids are used to form the DNA transcript of any RNA isolated by the chemical templates. The high heat synthetic nucleic acids are modeled after bacteria that live at the mouths of ocean floor volcanoes. Since there are no plausible evolutionary antecedents for these bacteria, some scientist think they are alien life from space.

    At about 24 thermal cycles the nucleic acids being produced in the PCR biocoper suffer thermal degradation and begin to break into shorter pieces.

    A test positive is declared when faint visible spectrum light is emitted by fluorescent dye applied as a coating on the copies made in the PCR machine. The problem is that this metric is proportional to surface are of the copies, and as they break up, more surface area emits more light, progressively overstating the number of nucleic acid chains. Kary Mullis knew this and recommended 25 cycles max. This seems to be the emerging consensus. 35 is way too many.

    There are many other problems with PCR. As used or viral infection diagnosis it is junk science converted to massive fraud.

  35. battleaxe says:

    hey jon its even worse than what you have said. I had a woman tell me at work (someone i do not know and have never seen before) that she has emails from a nurse friend of hers, whose state of residence i will not disclose for her own protection is that her nurse friend working in a hospital became suspcious because ALL of the “tests” PCR based came back positive,every time. this did not make sense. So, she created a false record and sent in a PCR swab that had not been touched AT ALL by a person. that test came back positivie for the so called virus. she privatelyy asked 5 other nurses to join in in this endeavor to send in false records with swabs that had NO TESTING collected. they all came back with POSITIVES for COVID. This group of nurses are EXTREMELY upset and they are wondering if the test swabs themselves are pre-contaminated with “the virus”.

    The Department of Justice has charged the president of Sunnyvale, California-based Arrayit Corporation with the alleged submission of $69 million in false claims for COVID-19 and allergy tests.

    In a complaint unsealed Tuesday, DOJ accused Arrayit of claiming it could detect the coronavirus in dried blood samples and telling clinics to bundle the test with its allergy diagnostic, regardless of medical need. In a statement, DOJ said in the affidavit supporting the complaint the company’s president said it could test for COVID-19….

    I have been delving into learning more about PCR tests. Thank you for this awesome blog and information. I knew, from Dr. Tim O’Shea, that the PCR detects antibodies and not specific viruses. However, I recently had a doctor’s visit – the first since 2019 – and they gave me a PCR test for Hep C which I did not authorize and did not know about until my test came back “positive.” The doctor’s set up an appointment with a hepatologist and hounded me about why I did not want to keep the appointment and so on. I knew just enough about the inaccuracy of PCR tests from the plandemic exposes. We ain’t seen nothin’ yet. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of these tests on the market which will be given to unsuspecting patients who will be diagnosed with every money making disease known to Big Pharma.
