The NY Times recalls an outbreak of PCR lies

This article is part of a current series of pieces [1] I’m posting—with the purpose of exposing the PCR fraud.

The war against humanity relies on this test. If the test falls, the whole official COVID narrative dissolves in front of our eyes.

You can perform a valuable service by spreading this information far and wide.

NY Times, January 22, 2007, “Faith in Quick [PCR] Tests Leads to Epidemic That Wasn’t.” [2] [3]

“Dr. Brooke Herndon, an internist at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, could not stop coughing…By late April, other health care workers at the hospital were coughing…”

“For months, nearly everyone involved thought the medical center had had a huge whooping cough outbreak, with extensive ramifications. Nearly 1,000 health care workers at the hospital in Lebanon, N.H., were given a preliminary test and furloughed from work until their results were in; 142 people, including Dr. Herndon, were told they appeared to have the disease; and thousands were given antibiotics and a vaccine for protection. Hospital beds were taken out of commission, including some in intensive care.”

“Then, about eight months later, health care workers were dumbfounded to receive an e-mail message from the hospital administration informing them that the whole thing was a false alarm.”

“Now, as they look back on the episode, epidemiologists and infectious disease specialists say the problem was that they placed too much faith in a quick and highly sensitive molecular test [PCR] that led them astray.”

“There are no national data on pseudo-epidemics caused by an overreliance on such molecular tests, said Dr. Trish M. Perl, an epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins and past president of the Society of Health Care Epidemiologists of America. But, she said, pseudo-epidemics happen all the time. The Dartmouth case may have been one the largest, but it was by no means an exception, she said.”

“Many of the new molecular [PCR] tests are quick but technically demanding, and each laboratory may do them in its own way. These tests, called ‘home brews,’ are not commercially available, and there are no good estimates of their error rates. But their very sensitivity makes false positives likely, and when hundreds or thousands of people are tested, as occurred at Dartmouth, false positives can make it seem like there is an epidemic.”

“’You’re in a little bit of no man’s land,’ with the new molecular [PCR] tests, said Dr. Mark Perkins, an infectious disease specialist and chief scientific officer at the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics, a nonprofit foundation supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. ‘All bets are off on exact performance’.”

“With pertussis, she [Dr. Kretsinger, CDC] said, ‘there are probably 100 different P.C.R. protocols and methods being used throughout the country,’ and it is unclear how often any of them are accurate. ‘We have had a number of outbreaks where we believe that despite the presence of P.C.R.-positive results, the disease was not pertussis,’ Dr. Kretsinger added.”

“Dr. Cathy A. Petti, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Utah, said the story had one clear lesson.”

“’The big message is that every lab is vulnerable to having false positives,’ Dr. Petti said. ‘No single test result is absolute and that is even more important with a test result based on P.C.R’.”

TAKEAWAY FROM THE TIMES: No large study validating the uniformity of PCR results, from lab to lab, has ever been done. At least a dozen very large studies should have checked for uniform results, before unleashing the PCR on the public; but no, this was not the case. It is still not the case. Also, the extreme sensitivity of the test causes MANY false-positives.

Now imagine the scandalous information in this NY Times article appearing everywhere—on social media, blogs, websites, etc. It would be terrible for Bill Gates, Fauci, and other great leaders in the Holy Church of Biological Mysticism.

Political leaders and public health experts would have, on their hands, a major refutation of their whole narrative about the “deadly pandemic.”

Do something. Spread this information.

    Covid-19 and the PCR Test walk into a bar. Start throwing them back.

    “You know,” declares the PCR, “many people say you don’t exist.”

    “Many people,” replies Covid-19, “say, while you exist, you are totally false.”

    “At least I exist.”

    “How can I not exist? I just bought you a round.”

    “Anyone could have put a bill down and bought a beer.”

    “Well, God too has many doubters. He has priests and I have you, my pal the PCR test.”

    “Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”

    “Funny you should say that. Bogie, I’m told, died of Covid-19.”

    “How is that possible? Bogart died in 1957.”

    “You’re saying I didn’t exist then either? Then nor did you my Kary Mullis invented wanna-be.”

    “You’re really obfuscating the issue.”

    “What do you think I was designed to do?”

    “You’re really confusing me. Or is it the cheap beer?”

    “Voila. Confusion. You’ve finally discovered your true calling.”

    “Which is?”

    “You search for the unfindable and present it as obviously there.”

    “So I’m talking to myself right now?”

    “No. Neither of us is talking. Fear itself is talking through us, using our voices.”

    “Fear is doing a monologue in two voices.”

    “You’ve got the whole game.”

    “Right there.”

    “Right there.”

    “Bartender–another round.”

    The bar is closed.

    “and thousands were given antibiotics and a vaccine for protection.” Since when are vaccines given after the fact? It seems in years past (even though I don’t take vaccines myself) the idea was to give them to prevent disease. It was also considered bad form to give them while someone is sick, and certainly not after the fact. The idea was for “prevention.” But then… ho hum.

    Time to actually be a “Super Spreader” ????

    KP: JOHN, Pls join us tomorrow, 2/20 8am- 12pm @ KP San Marcos for KP Fall In Love with your Health Outdoor Kids Vaccine Event! Reply STOP to opt out.
    This is what we just got via text from Kaiser in California. They want the kids to get vaccinated in a great “Fall in Love with your Health” event. This is crazy marketing trying to make it seem fun to get the vaccine??? Are there going to be balloons, treats, and adults dressed up as cartoon characters too? How about some fun games and activities?? Maybe they can give gift bags filled with stickers and toys??? Hmmm…. what are they willing to do to get our kids there??? Remember… Fauci said the key to herd immunity would be immunizing our children.

  6. David Bennett says:

    Are you familiar with Paul Craig Roberts? I would think so. Check this article and others he does.

  7. BDBinc says:

    Yes nail on head Jon, covID19 totally relying on( fear)and a reference less PCR test that can’t be used to create “cases” . Pseudo pandemic.
    Unfortunately the understanding that the 1861 Germ theory is wrong and still being rigidly held in peoples conditioned minds. But luckily the fraudulent use of a PCR to diagnose disease( create cases)in sample of dna contaminated rna is a gem.

  8. R.Millis says:

    In the States of Arkansas, Oklahoma, N/S Dakotas, Florida, and about 3 other States, there are few, if any Covid restrictions.
    Many, if not most of those States are run by Republican Governors.
    If the news reports are accurate, when Governor De Santis of Florida had to make decisions about Covid, he called in 4-5 specialized physicians to help him decide. ALL of those doctors told him the truth. NO LOCKDOWNS/RESTRICTIONS. De Santis agreed. As a result, Florida is one of the few most open States.
    This goes to show you, how “bought off” all the other governors are.

  9. Hyden says:

    nice work john, i always send your info out to politicians, radio stations, family and friends etc fuck em lol people need to know the truth.

  10. Tom Jackson says:

    Thousands of medical professionals around the world are organizing and declaring that the draconian CoVid-19 restrictions are causing more harm than good, that vaccines are not necessary, that CoVid-19 PCR tests are faulty and mask wearing for protection isn’t supported by decades of studies and may be harmful. Organizations include:,,,, and

    • Darrell says:

      See also and

      “Imagine a virus so deadly, you need a test to see if you have it. Imagine a vaccine so safe and effective, you have to threaten and force people to take it.”

  11. JennyM says:

    I’d send this to my so called friend who’s a medical resident, but she’s basically ignoring all my emails now. Apparently THE TRUTH HURTS!

    • Larry C says:

      Jenny, your friend MUST ignore your emails.

      She is preparing for a future based in large part on mis/disinformation via the Medical Indu$try….her very $urvival depends on her skills in holding *cognitive dissonance* at arm’s length.

  12. Benjamin Martin says:

    Seriously Jon, anybody, what can you do with someone who says this? I tried…

    ‘I do work in the sciences but I am also on the board of our health minister and just this week spoke to several of Australias most senior health policy makers… and regularly engage with the Americans too.
    If you think that a single action regarding Covid policy is being done to usurp power, seize control, eat into our liberties then I’m afraid you’ve been reading the wrong things, watching too many movies.
    It just isn’t true. Sure they make mistakes and they do have personal ambition but they are also public servants and are working their nuts off to save lives… and they are doing so pretty successfully against the odds. Over 1 in 600 people in the Uk have died of Covid. It would have been 3-4x that if we hadn’t put in these policies.
    There have been over 2.5m deaths in the world that we know of. Probably double that if you count the unregistered. I expect we will lose another 2m before this is over. Lock down and control are the only measures until we are all vaccinated… which will clearly become an annual thing. Sure there is now more than enough evidence to see that this is not a power play by governments.‘

    • Walking Dead says:

      And Benjamin Martin says, “Sure there is now more than enough evidence to see that this is not a power play by governments.”

      Dude, when the corporations(like twitter, facebook, and google) can block the president of the USA”, it is a power play by the corporations, which rule the government.

      • Benjamin Martin says:

        Respectfully, you misinterpreted my post…the lengthy quote with all that nonsense about governments not having any sinister intentions was a RESPONSE by a health official to something I wrote beforehand, which I did not include as it is implied. Apologies for the confusion.

        • Neil Larkins says:

          I certainly understood what you meant. The statement was made by a “health official” who couched it in absolute terms, thereby making it impossible to refute. You’ve tried to refute but unable to and are asking us if it is possible. No, it is not. Like Jon, we can only appeal to reasonable minds ready to absorb truth when it is presented to them. Being a government official requires a closed mind and blind obedience.

        • Jim S Smith says:

          Mr. Martin,

          I’m sorry, but you are just flat out wrong!

          Whether this be from a mindset of clinging onto a favored illusion, or just out of rife dishonesty – it matters not!

          There is so much obvious evidence, right in front of our faces – not to mention all the boasting by those exerting the power. HOW can any seeing eye fail to see the facts before them? ? ?

          And NO – this NOT “misinterpreting your post(s)” – as you so disarmingly like to repeat. – This is observable, repeated, evidentiary FACT!

          I do believe many of the professional healthcare workers believe they are working for the good of humanity, but are ignorant of the reality: “This entire ‘pandemic’ was a massively orchestrated HOAX upon the global humanity”. – This fact has been OVERWHELMINGLY-PROVEN, by actual health/medical professionals – time and time again. The concentrated control on the flow of information is what has kept their studies, investigations, results, and their very message to the public – out of the public spotlight (and disregarded as “disinformation”).


          Stop being a RUBE, and start seriously examining what the “media” and the rest in the establishment DON’T want out in the public information sphere! ! ! You’re being fed a line of BULL-xxxx!

          • oranje says:

            Jim S Smith;

            What are you on about?
            You can’t have read correctly the first line of Benjamin Martin’s post.

          • Martyg says:

            It seems that you’re misunderstanding Benjamin Martin’s post. He’s asking for Jon’s assistance in dealing with a medical industry person he personally knows and whose comment he posts. This person he quotes is evidently a devout believer in the false Covid 19 narrative and expresses incredulity that anyone would question the integrity of the Bill Gates’ puppets promoting the narrative. So, as Benjamin is clearly on our team, please refrain from denouncing him.

        • Walking Dead says:

          ahh!!! Sorry about that.

    • Post Hoc says:

      These people exist in an isolated bubble where all their ideas float round and round and feed each other with a fanciful lie which they all believe, getting nourished with their own propaganda so that everything else outside the bubble is too shocking for their undeveloped brains.

    • Sean says:

      Hi, Im not so sure that you will be able to sway Jon to your data. But Ive been doing a little research of my own. I have been traveling the US and some parts of the world, during the deadly spread of this and that. Seeing the fear in all of the mask wearing folks and many of the negative outcomes as a result of the very governments that are imposing lockdowns that you admittingly agree with. And the corporations imposing their will on all of these free countries, with real free people, almost relentlessly. Can you see any of the harms that are occurring as a direct result of your unconvincing view?

      I dont wear a mask and have not been and dont plan to unless there is a real reason to. Perhaps a pandemic or something like that. Nor do I obey the 6 foot distancing RULE. Nor when I walk into stores unmasked do I follow their arrows on the floor directing me which way to follow. Hate to say it, but Ive been learning to be one of those self-directed individuals that trys to think for himself, because authority has failed me over and over from the get go, maybe it’s for you though, that’s acceptable. And yet Im still alive. Im pretty sure sir, there is some big time BS being spread. Based continually on my own experiences and self-evidences all around the planet

      But Im thinking that maybe with your 2 million more so called covid death prediction, that is, if we dont continue lockdown, that maybe I will become one those victims. But we will just have to wait and see. Odds may be your side with the ways that doctors, the medical industry, are allowed to operate even more heavily this last year. Unethically, criminally? Totally untrustworthy until you guys come clean. Will they? You’re just following orders. Yeah, yeah. And making bank. They are just doing whatever they are guided to do. Thinking they are not doing, dare I say “causing” any harm whatsoever. Much like your stance.

      Im not a super healthy person. Im healthy. Im not even all that strong, in any way. Im probably 30lbs overweight. And yet the deadly virus hasnt gotten to me. Get this Benjamin, I wont ever take that shot, as much as you are totally convinced into promoting, and you will probably persuade others to your convictions to do so, even though sadly too many PEOPLE may die from it directly from your persuasions and all the others like you, but I wont. I have been researching the medical field for years and it aint a very good picture at all. It doesn’t do informed consent worth a crap. It does however love giving vaccinations loaded with toxicities. Defended always as necessary, by pretty much all doctors but not all. Its nearly the first thing out of your mouths when I ever find my way into so called doctors offices. If I say no and refuse a toxic potentially deadly shot, because I most likely am more informed about them than probably even you, and you are the one in the sciences, and on the board, you still will defend your toxic shots. Incomprehensible and unconscionable to me. And you cant even figure out what even a non scientist, unprofessional, self educated, guy on a blog site (The Best Blog Site) can figure out. That they are toxic and billions of dollars have been paid out in damages because of them, and much worse, endlessly worse, that they are somehow, in someway, have some kind of value to offer humankind. Your crowned jewel? Safe and effective? At least, start to consider honoring conformed consent vs what looks like a huge vote for mandatory anything, like what I understand doctors are supposed to do in the first place, you know, that Do No Harm pretense thing.. And maybe keep looking at other data that isnt necessarily what you tend to look at. Even I look at your data and take into consideration, of coarse. Always looking at data, putting it on the back burner so to speak and not only from my own point of views. Isnt that the way of a scientist? I know ya didnt ask me but it does indeed look like a power play by governments and its enforcers, you. And eventually many of you players will be exposed and hopefully convicted for going along with bogus data.

      Best of luck Benjamin.

    “UK Will Infect Healthy Young People With COVID in World’s First Human Challenge Trial”

    What the “f” will they be infected with? Insanity!

    • oranje says:

      Yes Wanda;

      I wonder what they will be trying to infect the
      volunteers with.

      Will it be a repeat of the 1918 experiment, in which
      the volunteers did not get sick?

      Maybe they have something else in mind.

      It can’t be to infect anyone with the ‘virus’
      because no pathogenic virus has ever been found.
      So called viruses being exosomes created by the body
      and not coming from outside

  14. Jim says:

    Interesting video on Gab TV. The title is the 1918 pandemic killed millions. Or did it?. The channel is Walk in verse. Basically,in a paper co-authored by fauci himself, they concluded that the deaths were almost entirely bacillus pneumonia. They had taken all the measures that we are taking now, and they concluded that the constant, mandatory mask wearing caused the pneumonia deaths. A damning scenario if true. I haven’t fact checked it, but it seemed likely to be true to me.

    • Walking Dead says:

      Ya, I don’t get people. Perhaps they should put a plastic bag over their head and then they can feel what breathing in all that carbon dioxide you exhale does.
      Our bodies were designed to take in oxygen, get what it needs out of it, and to exhale the byproducts the body doesn’t want. Just like we take in food, our body takes what it needs, and you shit out the byproduct of what the body doesn’t want. We take in a liquid and our body takes what it needs and we piss out the byproduct of what the body does not want. I wonder if the idiots out there would eat their own shit and drink their own piss if the science says it is good for them. They probably would, since they are already doing it with their oxygen. Ya know what they say, “Ya can’t fix stupid”.

    Kary Mullis – The full interview by Gary Null

    In May of 1996, Gary Null interviewed Nobel Prize Winning Chemist Kary Mullis on his views about the scientific establishment, HIV, AIDS and many other issues. Here is the full interview. Excerpts from the interview appeared in several of Gary Null’s AIDS documentaries including AIDS: A Second Opinion and Deconstructing the Myth of AIDS.

  19. OzzieThinker says:


    Agreed, but aside from the test, there’s something else (which allows for “rebranding”). Here’s a poignant paragraph from my most recent article to explain{

    “So, my first article about Coronavirus discussed (1892 invented) viruses specifically. When Louis Pasteur and Antoine Bechamp walked the Earth side by side viruses didn’t exist. In fact, prior to 2019 Coronavirus (as per its current version) didn’t exist either. This is important to know, because my last article observed that post 2019 diagnosis of “allegedly” associated illness changed with the occurrence of the new complaint. Back in 2017 and 2018 pulmonary disease sponsored heart attack fatalities were as described. But now there is extreme ambiguity over the nature of all causes. Though symptoms leading to death may have been recorded as something else prior, it did not stop positive test results’ automatically reclassifying contemporary causes as Coronavirus. The funny thing is (something mainstream Medias try not to dwell on), numbers of Coronavirus false positives are too numerous to warrant statistics. An American nurse I interviewed some months ago needed to undertake a test to return to work. She wasn’t sick when she learned of her positive result and hasn’t been sick since.”


  20. Paul R. says:


    You were right… Here we go… All complete BS…

    “Expert claims Britain could ALREADY have herd immunity amid huge 82% reduction in Covid infections in just six weeks with 17 million vaccinated”

    “Dr Marty Makary, from the prestigious Johns Hopkins University, said he believes the US could be just months away from herd immunity”

    “At the current trajectory, I expect Covid will be mostly gone by April, allowing Americans to resume normal life,’ he wrote in Wall Street Journal last week.”

  21. Paul R. says:


    Please write a couple of articles about COVID Variants.. here is the only article written about the subject so far on the internet.. This needs to made clear to the Masses quick…

    The Shaky Science Behind the “Deadly New Strains” of SARS-CoV-2
    More of Ferguson’s speculative “model” nonsense at work

    Neil Ferguson.. he’s back.. co-author of first paper about the criminal fraud and crimes against humanity COVID Variants…

    ‘Neil Ferguson was a co-author of the first and third papers.”

    What a surprise!!! “There, they cite modeling papers which haven’t yet been published – which means that until they’re published there’s no way to check their work.)”


    That the pronouncements about the dire danger posed by the new variants aren’t based on solid science.

    They appear to be aimed more at scaring the public into submitting to harsher and longer restrictions than helping to create truly evidence-based policies.

    So follow the golden rules. Read the primary scientific-paper sources. Analyze them and think for yourself. Don’t let your reasoning be swept away by the 24-7, fear-filled news cycle.

    What will the path out of the pandemic look like? Experts say COVID-19 will one day resemble the common cold

    Lavine says it’s unlikely vaccines will provide “sterilizing immunity” — the kind needed to fully prevent infection — but they’ll reduce the severity of the disease, to the extent that once COVID-19 becomes endemic, getting it could actually be a good thing.

    Please write an article about this… Atomic Bombshell Breaking News.. Overlords are Admitting that COVID was the common cold all along… Lol
