Note: I wrote and published this piece of fiction a year ago. It was the story of an isolated group of people living on a small island. They were essentially a control group: free of all COVID restrictions and medical measures.

In real life, you’d think the public health experts in charge of monitoring the “pandemic” would have assembled their own control group.

After all, since these experts were willing to test, trace, treat, and lock down a significant portion of the planet, shouldn’t they have observed what would happen to a population they left completely alone?

Shouldn’t they have tested “the other side” of their hypothesis?

“We need to see what happens to, say, a thousand people who might contract COVID-19, if we don’t test or treat them, if we don’t tell them to wear masks or distance. This would be a group who live together in one location, who interact with each other…”

But no, this was never done. In fact, there were, and are, many places around the world where people are still living free of COVID measures. Public health agencies don’t report convincingly on their health status.

Why not? Obviously, because if such a group, or several groups, remained healthy, the whole mad notion of the pandemic would begin to collapse like a house of cards.

Hence, this piece:

Coronavirus and Island X-24

There was a small island.

Amazingly, it had never been claimed by any country. It just sat there. It was inconsequential. Geographers were irritated that it had no name. In 1998, they named it X-24.

123 families lived there. They had emigrated from 14 countries.

During the 2020 onset of the trouble in China, 19 citizens escaped the lockdown in Wuhan and found their way to the island in a small makeshift boat, which broke into pieces near shore. The resident families rescued them, welcomed them without fanfare, and offered them housing in huts on the north side of the island.

People on the island practiced agriculture on their tiny farms, and they raised chickens and ate eggs. There was no government. The families met once a month to discuss any issues that might have arisen since their last meeting. They did not vote. They used common sense. They were sensible people. They had no ideology. They had no phones, no computers, no electricity.

One of the newly arrived Chinese women explained, at a meeting, the coronavirus, the epidemic, the lockdown, the testing. She asked whether anyone was concerned that her people might have brought the virus with them. The people of the island looked around at each other and shrugged. They didn’t seem interested.

Three weeks later, an article appeared in the mainland Chinese press about X-24 and the 19 escaped Wuhan residents. It was picked up by a wire service and then republished by a number of outlets around the world. It did not become a big story.

However, a boat soon arrived at the island. A Chinese official and an American public health officer from the CDC stepped off. Several conversations ensued. The two bureaucrats were concerned that the virus might have come to X-24. The residents said they didn’t travel, and they didn’t even fish. Why not? No one had an answer. The bureaucrats took samples of rainwater from a backyard container. They took a look at all the X-24 residents and saw they were healthy. They took throat swabs from the new 19 Chinese residents. There was a bit of tension when the Chinese official told these Wuhan escapees they were living illegally on the island and should return home. The Chinese residents said they wouldn’t, but they had no intention of causing trouble. The visitors left.

A week later, at a meeting in government offices in Wuhan, CDC and Chinese scientists told a deputy mayor of the city that nine immigrants on X-24 had tested positive for the coronavirus. A call was immediately made to the public health and safety office of the national government, and the news was reported. Two hours later, a message came back: leave the people on X-24 alone for now.

The government in Beijing took up the X-24 issue in several committees. A decision was made. Drones would do high flyovers and surveil the island. No one would be permitted to leave it.

Three months later, with the world in lockdown, a small elite government committee met in Beijing. The news: all the residents of X-24 were going about their daily business. No sick people were observed, even among the elderly. No one had tried to leave the island. No one was practicing social distancing. People met and mingled as usual. A CDC/WHO message was read: It expressed concern about X-24. People who were positive for the virus couldn’t be allowed to live outside the limits of control. Something needed to be done.

Three weeks later, X-24 residents observed a group of armed boats approaching. Maneuvers were executed, and the craft made a ring around the island. They sat about 20 miles offshore. They stayed there.

This operation was noticed by the press. The X-24 story made a brief limited comeback. INFECTED PEOPLE LIVING ON AN ISLAND. QUARANTINE FORCED. A few reporters tried to get information on the condition of the X-24 residents. They couldn’t.

CDC meetings took place. The gist was: These people remain healthy. There is no sign of trouble. No disease. No illness. “What happens if THIS becomes a story?”

The issue was kicked up to the Chinese and American military. Very private meetings took place. “We could launch a drone missile attack and wipe them out.” “We could send in a kill-team.” “How about a massive fire? Drop a few incendiaries.” “Spray them with nasty chemicals. They’ll have a hell of time trying to breathe, they’ll foam at the mouth and die.”

But in the end, the military held back. A message from a carefully guarded private source came down the line: “Leave them alone. Remove the stupid ships. Observe from drones. Do not attack. They rate as experimental subjects. They constitute a control group. By CDC projections, at least a few of them should become ill. So far, that’s not the case.”

…A year later, on X-24, the Chinese woman, who had originally told the island residents about the coronavirus, wrote in the diary she had been keeping, “The mainland madness is just a faint memory. My mother here is 93. She is reasonably healthy. A few people get sick, as a matter of course, and then they get well. Nothing unusual. There were two deaths last year. A French woman and an American man. They were both in their 80s. I helped their families make them comfortable at the end. I saw no sudden illness of the lungs. I liked all these island people from the start. I feel close to them now.”

Old habits die hard. She looked around her small cabin, as if some government authority might be present. She walked to the pile of stones arranged in the corner, where a low fire was burning. It occurred to her there was no reason to continue her diary. She bent down and placed it in the flames and watched it for a minute. The past was past.

Nothing untoward had happened on the island.

Back at the CDC, a private analysis was carried out. Nine mitigating factors were listed to explain why no one on the island had fallen ill from the virus. The conclusion was the island was not a proper representation of the real world. The analysis was sent up the line to the guarded source who had ordered the ring of ships to back off. He read the CDC analysis.

He sent back a message. “I wasn’t asking you to cover your ass or justify your role in this fiasco. Your so-called mitigating factors are a crock. Apparently, you’re unable to be honest. So let me send you my analysis. The people on X-24 didn’t get sick because they didn’t get sick. Remove promoted fear, diagnostic tests, treatment with toxic drugs, and other damage falsely labeled as COVID, and you have nothing. I see why you were disturbed about the story of X-24. But then, accounting for healthy people who stay healthy has never been your strong suit, has it? You’ve gone too far. I should set my hounds loose on you.”

A colleague of his walked into the sauna, picked up a pitcher of cold water and poured it on the rocks. Steam rose and the rocks hissed. Wrapped in white sheets, the two men sat side by side.

“Did you tear them a new one?”

“I gave them something to think about. These people are incorrigible. They really are.”

“When our friends arrive tonight, we’ll discuss the situation.”

“Yes. Recess is over. The bureaucrats interrupted business. Products must flow. Money must flow. They don’t understand we’re the engine of the world, for better or worse.”

“We’ll school these little bureaucrats. They parade around thinking they’re princes. They’re going to pay.”

The steam spread. The men were invisible.

That was the story I wrote a year ago. Unfortunately, the “little bureaucrats” and the men behind them haven’t paid. The real-life versions of the big-time businessmen in my story (in the sauna) haven’t made a move to stop the economic ruination. Why? Because they don’t have the courage. And they prefer to gather at the government money-trough with their hands out.

But free people are out in the streets in larger numbers.

They see each other.

They know what freedom is and isn’t.

    Stand Back!
    Said Stand Back!

    What are those dogs doing
    sniffing at my feet?
    They’re on to something,
    Picking up
    Picking up, this heat
    This heat.
    Give me steam
    And how you feel can make it real
    Real as anything you’ve seen
    You know your culture from your trash
    You know your plastic from your cash
    When I lose sight of the track
    You know the way back…
    Everybody nosedive
    Hold your breath
    Count to five
    Backslap, boobytrap,
    Cover it up in bubblewrap
    Room shake, earthquake
    Find a way to stay awake…”

    BRAVO! Recently, a restaurant owner from Thailand tols me … through a full-cover light blue face mask … that America was “free.”
    I upswt him with a brief outline of the scientific fraud called COVID.
    Show me to the island. I am exhausted. Will be driving to Florida again, soon, to cavort among maskless. Unfortunately, the mask used to be an identifier for idiocy complacency the blackmailed who likely take the injection. Now I have no way of knowing who carries a revved up spike protein attached to their sloughing ACE2 enzymes.

    • Tom says:

      I wish to drive, or in my case, FLY, to Florida too. Too many stupid people where I live, in the country directly south of Thailand. Where the current head of government cheated his way to that position and was handed another big slice of luck when China introduced the concept of lockdowns last year. Now he’s using it whenever he wishes.

      • Gigolo Joe says:

        How bad is it? I’ve avoided looking closely because there’s someone I care about there and I’m powerless to do anything about it. I’ve just read about “red zones” and the PM personally profiting off of controlled food markets.
        Are people really starving? Lockdowns? How bad is PP?

    • Al says:

      Am currently in the former L.o.S. (Land of Smiles) and am absolutely gobsmacked by the numbers of clowns walking around with said nappy/diapers on their faces. And to even top that, people riding around on motorcycles with a mask on, and minus a …..helmet!
      Almost surrealistic/Daliesque……

    15. Tuvalu
    Located about halfway between Hawaii and Australia, Tuvalu is made up of three reef islands and six atolls, with a combined area of approximately 10 square miles and a population of over 10,000. The independent nation, a member of the Commonwealth, has seen success in closing its borders to travel, with a mandatory quarantine in some cases.

    Places Without Reported COVID-19 Cases
    A handful of countries and territories are the few places left with no reported cases from the coronavirus pandemic.

    Places Without Reported COVID-19 Cases

    Nukunonu Atoll, NEW ZEALAND: Undated photo shows villagers unloading goods from a barge in Nukunonu atoll, Tokelau. Tokelau has no airport or port and all passengers and goods have to be brought ashore on the three atolls by barges through a gap in the surrounding reef. The only contact with the outside world is through a fortnightly shipping service from Apia, 500 km (310 miles) to the south. AFP PHOTO (Photo credit should read STR/AFP via Getty Images)
    12. Tokelau
    Consisting of three tropical coral atolls in the South Pacific Ocean, Tokelau is a dependent territory of New Zealand, although both governments in New Zealand and Tokelau call it a nation. The three atolls have a combined land area of 4 square miles, and the capital rotates annually between the three atolls.

    With no airport, Tokelau is accessible primarily by ship. With a population of about 1,500 residents, Tokelau calls itself the first nation to be completely powered by renewable energy.

    Jon, you should revise the Island story to go a level above the billionaires in the sauna who still care that their “products” move and that business and trade happens.

    Levels above them are the Great Reset crew, Gates’ handlers and who knows who else?? They don’t care up there about trade, capitalism, stocks and bonds. They’re interested in “vaccines” and their aftermaths. There’s another game happening there. An endgame. But you know that.

    • YouBeTheJudge says:

      Correct. Products and profits are of secondary importance (maybe third) to the bigger agendas. Every peasant on board and under control, every soldier & corporation complying with order$ from above, and every top shadow leader watching the Hunger Games begin.

  6. Roger welsh says:

    I do hope Jon rappoport keeps the absence of cov 19 alive and spinning

    It blows asunder the evil being worought upon the world

    Screenplay: THE WUHAN-19!

    (Independently produced, of course.)

  8. THX1138 says:

    The “other side” in science is called the “null hypothesis”. This fundamental principal has been completely ignored in this fake “scientific” debate.

  9. NC says:

    I read some months ago about some villages in India where they were so remote that no one had ever heard of Covid. The villagers said that nothing had changed, people died like they always did, and not in any greater numbers. I hope they were left alone. But some “Medical Experts” probably went in to “save” these people from their delusions, and ended up wiping them all out…
    and the beat goes on…

  10. Fennel seed might allay spike proteins shed from the vaxxed… more available than pine needle tea.

    More people have died from vax than said to have died on 9/11

    TomatoBubble thinks Trump’s Warpspeed was a trick and vaxxes are relatively benign & normal flu shots given every year– not mRNA

  11. Siouxma says:

    What’s going on in the Amish communities? I hear the lack of tv watching can do wonders in not knowing or caring about Scamdemics. They don’t vaxx their kids either and provide them with their own schooling. Home births so no hebB jabs for newborns. Constant harassment by the local health dept. to get their kids fully jabbed but that doesn’t impress them at all. They work very hard, and I am too old & lazy now to embrace their way of life. FREEDOM from Tyranny made America a Refuge, but no more.
