The COVID PCR test is a complete fraud

NOTE: I’ve posted this article several times. I post it again because so-called “rising COVID case numbers” are being touted as justification for masking and other restrictions, as well as a reason for taking the destructive COVID vaccine.

This article is part of my series on the COVID PCR test. These articles prove that the test is fatally flawed, gives rise to hugely inflated and false case numbers, which in turn led to the unnecessary and brutal lockdowns.

I’m hoping readers will spread this information far and wide.

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 the 4m01s mark through to the 5m45s mark (Fauci begins his first answer to the first question at the 4m20s mark and begins his second answer to the second question at the 5m26s mark)):

“…If you get [perform the test at] a cycle threshold of 35 or more…the chances of it being replication-competent [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.

“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 global economy and its 8 billion 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: “CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel For Emergency Use Only.” See page 35. This document is marked, “Effective: 07/21/2021.” That means, even though the virus is being referred to by its older name, the document is still relevant as of July 2021. “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, 2020) headlined: “Your coronavirus test is positive. Maybe it shouldn’t be.” Here are money quotes:

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

Set-the-limit would 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.

    I was “debating” someone about the virus who works in a lab. The PCR cycle counts are “proprietary manufacturer information.”

    In other words: It’s a secret even to those running the machines.

    • Andrew says:

      Yes. That is my main question. I know what Jon is saying.

      But I have heard that each manufacturer sets their cycle threshold for pos or neg which is different from number of cycles run. This same person said that the fda doesn’t set the manufacturer’s threshold.

      Each one is diff given slightly diff kits. So do labs follow manufacturer level or fda CDC level????

      • Larry C says:

        Even Kary Mullis clearly stated that the PCR test could not be used to test for COVID19.

        Who is Kary Mullis?

        He’s the guy who devised the test, in the first place. His PCR test is the Gold Standard for determining whether one has contracted the (putative) COVID19 virus. (Almost every person declared to be positive for COVID19, was given hisp PCR test.)

        His discovery was hailed as one of the most important scientific achievements of the 20th century. And oh yes…Mr Mullis eventually won a Nobel Prize for his PCR Test.

        And Mullis has called BULLSHIT on the manner in which Dr. FAUCI and the CDC have twisted the test protocols, to achieve their own end$.

    • BigTim says:

      What specifically are the machines looking for and do the paople running the particular lab even know this? I assume the devices are looking for a specific genome sequence, probably a sequence obtained by computer comparing the genome published online with other known virus sequences. Like Sesame Street, which of these is not like the others. So who, or what puts the search genome into the machines? Do the labs even know what they are looking for, they just accept what the nachines spit out? Is it fraudulent ? Is the sought sequence classified to hide a fraud?

    TO FAR & WIDE & TO

    Would you be so kind,
    & I KNOW that you are,
    send this article
    to the “heads” at ICS.

    They warrant a heads up.

    After all, their motto avers hence:

    “There is a cure.”

    I’m gonna send them this fast ball too.

    International Covid Summit

    Dear Lilly,

    I hope you or your staff would print Jon Rappoport’s article, posted today, with beginning Title: Smoking gun:

    It offers researched & cited information, explanation & synthesis, on Dr. Fauci, PCR testing, & other relevant information, that I deem will prove relevant to the professionals engaged in your praiseworthy Summit.

    Please share it with them.

    As an aside, along a mountain side, since this Summit will be rendered in a European venue, I remember watching the wonderful movie “The Sound of Music.”

    I remember, all-too-well, those beautiful high skyline images of the Alps. Soft clouds, breezing on by & lifted by, wind-borne zephyrs.

    Mighty Alps, that pour, into more than a single Country.

    I also know, that solo Artists, as well as Congregating Choruses, choose to sing alone, or in Group, from on-high-summits.

    This is my hope.
    My song-ed prayer.

    I hope too,
    you might appreciate & get,
    The Painted Picture.

    All my best.

    in addition to the high cycle PCR nonsense, what about the classification of an ‘unvaccinated’ person;

    According to the CDC’s stats, ‘unvaxxed’ is 14 days post 2nd shot or post single shot (J&J). So if that’s the case, all the ‘unvaccinated’ sick/hospitalized/deaths currently occurring are possibly (more than likely) POST vaccinated people, yes?

    Also, I’ve read that the PCR is used to determine certain types of lung cancer. If so, how is one to be certain they indeed have LC if the PCR is unreliable?

  5. Andy Fox says:

    PCR cannot detect live virus. (pg 6 of the link below)

    PCR detects fragments of RiboNuceic Acid.

    PCR is NOT a test, it is an amplification technique used as a tool to help in diagnosis.

    • Daev says:

      Do you have any info on the Rapid or antigen tests? I know about the PCR, but have not seen info on the Rapid test, which seems to be what many hospitals use. Would appreciate input if you have any. Thanks!

  6. Orpheus Owl says:

    Now we just need Saint Fauci to say in medicalese-speak that the existence of any “Covid-19 Virus” is a complete fabrication dreamed up for this entire agenda.

    It’s the one fact that exposes the whole operation. It’s why simply saying “There is No Virus” is the one thing that will get you kicked off Youtube for “medical misinformation.”

  7. Orpheus Owl says:

    Too bad Rand Paul won’t be that brave Congressman to debate Fauci about this PCR Test fact in one of their theatrical, scripted pieces of theater promoted by the mainstream media. He may have the brain cells but not the spine or cojones.

    I’m beginning to think he’s just as deceptive as the rest of them. My apologies to his father.

    • TrustNoOne says:

      They’re both part of the establishment. Same as RFK Jr. Yes, they’re doing some good but it’s 1/100 of what should really be done.

    • trishwriter says:

      The Rand Paul apple, unfortunately, has fallen far from his father’s tree of liberty. I’m pretty sure Rand has taken the experimental injection; and it seems as though someone’s using him to debate Fauci about suffocation devices, and whether the “vaccinated” should be using them. He’s certainly not doing what his father is doing–although his dad does seem to be a “virus” and “vaccine” believer overall. At least Ron Paul is questioning things. Rand seems to have all the answers, which leads me to wonder who’s paying him to have those answers.

  8. Sherman says:

    There was a sample instruction manual for running a rt-PCR posted up on the FDA’s approved manufacturer’s website pages.

    Instructions list a step-by-step protocol to set the rt-PCR at 40ct, apparently an example only and contrary to training experienced laboratory technicians get…which is to determine the delta ct between the base solution (also provided by mfgr) and again, after material (snot) has been added to vial.

    See James Lyons-Weiler for more details, he has experience teaching how to run these tests.

  9. Ann Justin says:

    The underlined “links” in the e-mail article and the links provided on this blog do not work. They have to be copied and pasted into the browser. That doesn’t seem usual…..? Some may not be able to follow to the materials or just not bother. I did and that worked but it was clumsy. Usually direct links work…
    Can it be corrected?

  10. Mike Mootart says:

    And let us never forget Kary Mullis, inventor of PCR, who explicitly stated that PCR is not designed as a diagnostic test and should never be used for it. And I think he had the quote “Fauci doesn’t know anything about what he is talking about” way before 2020.

    Kary Mullis 1944-2019 – died right before the charade began.

    No details that I know of on his death, just another convenient one for the PTB.

    Also remember Andrew Moulden and Brandy Vaughn, two more who fought the good fight and, unfortunately, no longer with us.

    Dying much too young under suspicious circumstances.

    Suspect there many others as well.

    • trishwriter says:

      I read that Kary Mullis died of pneumonia. His death does seem quite suspicious, considering what the psychopaths had in mind for the next few months. In a video I saw, he said he tried to find a citation for “HIV causes AIDS,” but could not find anything with that information. He also said that Fauci would lie to the camera and not feel bad at all about doing it (that’s my paraphrase).

      Just FYI: I remember hearing about the death of Andrew Moulden, of a “heart attack,” as I recall.

  11. Abigel says:

    There is a part related to PCR, the purpose apart from running a fake pandemic.
    The Barcode of Life.

    It’s for tagging. Recently I tried one in a couple of drops of saliva and had a look using a simple microscope. It was full with white, hard looking ‘threads’. It’s not for samples, it’s for delivering something.

    I also saw a recording on, an elderly woman after swabbing, the upper part of her nose and her forehead became magnetic.

    These days we are flooded with info, deliberately, if your brain is tired you give up.

    Good information. Natural Blaze posted, on 8/27/21, 2 great articles totally exposing the FDA vaccine approval:

    2 Things the Mainstream Media Didn’t Tell You About FDA Approval of Pfizer Vaccine

    Pfizer mRNA Shot Not Approved

    And I found that this law: Smith-Mundt Modernization Act, allows the government to prepare and disseminate misleading information.

    This is how and why all the false, fraud, misinformation is being published to the public.

    It never stops!!!

  13. Theri McEntee says:

    Not to mention, PCR’s inventor Dr.Kary B. Mullis, said quite clearly that PCR is NOT a test and canNOT detect or diagnose ANYthing, it just amplifies a whole lot of “SOMETHING”.

    PLUS, cycling over 20 times is more than enough of an exponentially amplified DNA strand for ID purposes … AND a virus by any name STILL hasn’t been isolated/purified to prove it even exists.

  14. Daev says:

    Can anyone share info as to how the Rapid Test being used at many hospitals work?

    How or does it differ from the PCR?

  15. Joey says:

    can you please prove to me that the PCR test is ran at different levels of amplification for vaccinated versus unvaccinated? I’m trying to understand why the “delta strain” is a plague of the unvaccinated. How is this happening. thank you.

  16. DAVID DONNELLY says:

    According to Dr David Martin, the patent says it should be run at 20 cycles.

  17. Tra says:

    Talked to kids pediatrician today for a normal check up. He was very much skeptical last year when we visited and this year he is 180 from that. Pushing kid masks and injections.

    I asked why the sea change. He said delta variant. I said, what makes you so sure, do your tests actually show the varietal? He said no, I guess I am making an assumption there but either way our cases have gone through the roof in our practice.

    I said, oh my, are you using the PCR test? He said yes of course. I asked him if he knew what the cycle threshold of said PCR tests were being run at. He said he was unaware of that information and said he just send it off to the lab.

    This is a medical doctor pediatrician who is supposed to be in the know. somehow the flu came up in the conversation, he said he had absolutely zero cases of flu last year when usually he has more than he can count, he has also had zero so far this year.

    I asked what he attributed that to, he said social distancing and masks of course.

      MD does not stand for most divine.

      There is a difference between intelligence, education, and wisdom, and I will add morality.

      There’s a saying about a man who could name a horse in five languages but saddled up a cow to ride.

      This doctor is either totally corrupt and immoral or simply doesn’t understand how to apply what he knows.

      It is his duty to make it his business to understand and to stay current with how the test used his profession work.


  18. Courageous Lion says:

    Interesting that they insist that the short end of the cycle is set at 35 when the inventor of the device said it should be run NO more than 25.

    Seems to me that he would know best, but hey, he died with pneumonia just before all of this S**T started going down.

    I wonder if it was induced by someone working for the medical mafia?

    Naaaa…they wouldn’t do that! Watch Kary Mullis talk about Fauci on numerous venues. Watch him talk about how he was asked to see if his device would work on the blood of an HIV “positive” person and how he said, “Get me the paper (study that shows that HIV is the probable cause of aids) so I can set the write up for myself” and found out there WAS no study!!

    This whole psychological mind screw needs to stop! IMMEDIATELY.

    One other thing…testing vaccinated at 25 and unvaccinated at 45 seems a bit odd to me. Anyone else see anything odd about that? Think that can skew the numbers?

    • Daev says:

      A: Absolutely!

  19. Daev says:

    Jon, can you please write an article on the Rapid and antigen tests being used in many hospitals to “diagnose” covid? How does it differ from the PCR, etc, etc. I can’t find info on these tests. Thanks!

    I hope some of you smart people save this

    to a different platform.

    Thank you. Thank you Jon and others for your input. I appreciate it.

    The corrupt UK government sets the PCR test at 45 cycles.

    245 years ago…MEN ran out of words and protests. A revolution bought and paid for with REAL blood and death PAID for YOUR freedom in this country.

    245 years later, the bill has come due again. There is “no escape from the matrix”. But this generation prefers to walk to their extermination camp while they chant about “social justice”. They are going to get it, as Mencken said, GOOD & HARD.

  23. anti_republocrat says:

    Actually, anything above 30 is garbage, and the CDC has acknowledged samples where a Ct greater than 28 can not be sequenced for a variant.
