When Sharyl Attkisson exposed a phony epidemic; media blackout; CDC and Fauci told a lie the size of an aircraft carrier parked in Times Square

My interview with Attkisson about the scandal

I wrote this article several years ago. I repost it now, because it goes to the credibility of the CDC, Fauci, and the monstrous stance of the medical establishment on epidemics.

Over the last 30 years, I’ve documented many crimes of the CDC; this one is epic:

I take you back to the summer of 2009, when the CDC and the World Health Organization were hyping the “deadly H1N1 Swine Flu pandemic.”

They were, of course, also urging people to take the new Swine Flu vaccine. On that subject, here is an excerpt from Robert Kennedy Jr.’s article at Children’s Health Defense (3/27/20):

“For example, Fauci once shilled for the fast-tracked H1N1 influenza (‘swine flu’) vaccine on YouTube, reassuring viewers in 2009 that serious adverse events were ‘very, very, very rare.’ Shortly thereafter, the vaccine went on to wreak havoc in multiple countries, increasing miscarriage risks in pregnant women in the U.S., provoking a spike in adolescent narcolepsy in Scandinavia and causing febrile convulsions in one in every 110 vaccinated children in Australia—prompting the latter to suspend its influenza vaccination program in under-fives.”

However, that is only half the Swine Flu story. The other half—which involves an astounding CDC hoax—was surely something Fauci was aware of at the time.

Fauci was, in fact, recommending a highly dangerous vaccine for protection against AN EPIDEMIC THAT DIDN’T EXIST AT ALL.

His friends and professional colleagues at the CDC were creating the hoax.

In the summer of 2009, the CDC was claiming there were thousands of Swine Flu cases in the US. But behind these statistics lay an unnerving secret. A major crime, considering the CDC’s mandate to report the truth to the American people:

Secretly, the CDC had stopped counting cases of Swine Flu.

What? Why?

CBS investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, discovered the CDC secret; and she found out why.

The routine lab testing of tissue samples from the most likely Swine Flu patients was coming back, in the overwhelming percentage of cases, with: NO SIGN OF SWINE FLU OR ANY OTHER KIND OF FLU.

Attkisson wrote an article about this scandal, and it was published on the CBS News website. However, the next, bigger step—putting out the story on CBS television news—was waylaid. No deal. And CBS shut down any future investigation on the subject. Attkisson’s article died on the vine. No other major news outlet in the world picked up her article and ran with it deeper into the rabbit hole.

Here is what Attkisson told me when I interviewed her:

Rappoport: In 2009, you spearheaded coverage of the so-called Swine Flu pandemic. You discovered that, in the summer of 2009, the Centers for Disease Control, ignoring their federal mandate, [secretly] stopped counting Swine Flu cases in America. Yet they continued to stir up fear about the “pandemic,” without having any real measure of its impact. Wasn’t that another investigation of yours that was shut down? Wasn’t there more to find out?

Attkisson: The implications of the story were even worse than that. We discovered through our FOI efforts that before the CDC mysteriously stopped counting Swine Flu cases, they had learned that almost none of the cases they had counted as Swine Flu was, in fact, Swine Flu or any sort of flu at all! The interest in the story from one [CBS] executive was very enthusiastic. He said it was “the most original story” he’d seen on the whole Swine Flu epidemic. But others pushed to stop it [after it was published on the CBS News website] and, in the end, no [CBS television news] broadcast wanted to touch it. We aired numerous stories pumping up the idea of an epidemic, but not the one that would shed original, new light on all the hype. It was fair, accurate, legally approved and a heck of a story. With the CDC keeping the true Swine Flu stats secret, it meant that many in the public took and gave their children an experimental vaccine that may not have been necessary.

—end of interview excerpt—

So…fake pandemic, CDC crimes, and a damaging vaccine.

But that wasn’t end of it. The CDC wanted to commit another crime. About three weeks after Attkisson’s findings were published on the CBS News website, the CDC, obviously in a panic, decided to double down. If one lie is exposed, tell an even bigger one. A much bigger one.

Here, from a November 12, 2009, WebMD article is the CDC’s response: “Shockingly, 14 million to 34 million U.S. residents — the CDC’s best guess is 22 million — came down with H1N1 swine flu by Oct. 17 [2009].” (“22 million cases of Swine Flu in US,” by Daniel J. DeNoon).

Are your eyeballs popping? They should be.

Fast forward to 2021. Who in his right mind, armed with a little history, would believe anything the CDC is saying about COVID-19? The discovery of a new coronavirus? The case and death numbers, the accuracy of the diagnostic tests, the need for lockdowns and economic devastation, the safety and importance of a vaccine, the fear porn? Who would believe any of it?

And who would believe anything coming out of the mouth of Dr. Anthony Fauci?

Only a fool.

    It was also in 2009 that the World Health Organization changed its definition of pandemic to discount mortality rate. Look up Spanish Nun/Doctor Teresa Forcades:


  2. AJ says:

    This shows that all these health agencies cannot be trusted and relied for any truth.

  3. Opie Poik says:

    The C.oronahoax D.isinfo C.ommission is doing what it’s done forever. The 1976 Swine Flu hoax hype and its associated injurious vax and mealy mouthed directors, agents and spokesmen are all the same as now:

    Back when there were still some mainstream media real journalists, as in Mike Wallace herein.

  4. Anne Beckett says:

    I got caught up in that ’76 swine-flu hoax, so by the time the second one sprouted from the mind of Fauci and CDC (yes, I said, mind; singular), I was immune.

  5. Toni says:

    Thank you, Jon, for this “walk down [dystopic?] memory lane”! I do appreciate these reminders of the many, many past “coup d’etats” perpetrated on the public by these Medical Teams and their many Agencies (by appointment only).

    I think we have been conditioned to believe them and to quickly forget the terrible flotsam/jetsam they leave behind, then we are blind-sided by the next tsuanmi they try to deluge us with! As you say how can we keep falling for this?! At a couple months short of 74 yrs old I have seen many of these Activities come our way, and most with a good amount of success;it was started long before me (Germ Theory,The AMA for instance) and has been like the proverbial snowball down the mountain.

    This has drawn my mind to this verse from 1 Corinthians 13: “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child,I thought as a child. But, when I became a man, I put away the things of a child (“childish” is used in some translations). This entire chapter, and book, is well-worth a read and meditation.

    Nice. as you may know? WSJ Wed.23 March 2005(five)! top of-fold Marketplace, B1 piece on CDC (B.McKay) re “Experimental Pandemic bird-flu Virus”, was then solid portent vis bioweapons game plan. P.B2 has neat cdc renderings of heinous flu hybrid in context of its “race against nature to make its own mutations”.

    story elements incl.: experiments “will be tested on animals”, research/labs at Erasmus U. and in Rotterdam…”few certainties”, and to boot, tests cud “produce a highly lethal pathogen capable of killing millions of people..”; although “‘will help us assess the pandemic risk.'”, acc. to one Ms. Cox.

  7. Haniel Adhar says:

    What if I told you…

    That these are not the only “fake epidemics/pandemics”?

    What if I told you that the Black Plague was not a plague at all? Spanish Flu was not the “flu”? Polio was not really “polio”?

    What if I told you that all of this, all of it, every bit of it, has been a giant lie piled upon another giant lie?

    • NaturalGal says:

      Haniel, you’d be speaking truth!

    • Jimmy says:

      “What if I told you that the Black Plague was not a plague at all? Spanish Flu was not the “flu”? Polio was not really “polio”?”

      I would say without backing up these claims with credible evidence, you’re full of […].

      • Frank GL says:

        Massive amounts of toxicity, deficiency, povery, horrible medications, standards of living, water, food, etc? Those are all known implicated factors in disease.

        Vs…how about someone try back up claims of viruses…

  8. Roundball Shaman says:

    “…who would believe anything coming out of the mouth of Dr. Anthony Fauci? Only a fool.”

    Did you know the Doobie Brothers recorded a song about those today who believe what Doctor Weasel says? They did. It’s called…

    ‘What a Fool Believes’

  9. Arby says:

    And what does Sharyl say about the covid 19 pandemic hoax? As far as I can tell, she’s got a head full of Rockefeller ‘science’ (dogma actually) and doesn’t challenge the mainstream narrative about covid, at least in important respects. (I’m guessing that she complains about the police State lockdown policies, but that’s easy.) I visited the site a while back thinking that I’d find a fiery rebel and great diatribes against the hoax. I was very disappointed. I didn’t return. She’s not one of the many, many sources of information I tap for my blog.

  10. NaturalGal says:

    Haniel, you are speaking truth.

  11. Richard Deininger says:

    I look forward to your guidance of truth and understanding.
