In case you thought the PCR test detects an actual virus…wrong

by Jon Rappoport

In a CDC document titled, “Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) 2020 Interim Case Definition, Approved April 5, 2020,” [1] under the section, “Laboratory Criteria,” we have this:

“Detection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 ribonucleic acid (SARS-CoV-2 RNA) in a clinical or autopsy specimen using a molecular amplification test.”

The test referred to is the PCR. And as you can plainly see, it is detecting, not the virus itself, but a piece of RNA.

A piece of RNA ASSUMED to come from the virus, SARS-CoV-2.

I say ASSUMED because, where is the actual virus? Where is the virus isolated from all surrounding material?

If you don’t have an isolated specimen of the virus, you can’t say, with any degree of certainty at all, that you have a piece of it (the RNA).

As I’ve described many times [2], “isolated” is a term that is tortured by researchers, so that it means just the opposite of what it is supposed to mean.

Numerous studies that claim the virus has been isolated actually turn out to mean: “We have the virus in a soup in a dish in the lab. The soup contains various types of animal and humans cells, toxic chemicals and drugs, and other genetic material. The virus is completely surrounded, but it is there. We know this, because some of the cells are dying, and this dying must be the result of infection with the virus…”

This argument not only turns the definition of “isolation” on its head, it reveals, upon a moment’s consideration, that the dying of the cells could come from the action of the toxic chemicals and drugs; and on top of that, the cells are being starved of nutrients, so they could be dying as a result of that deprivation.

Therefore, to say “the virus must be in the soup in the dish in the lab” because is killing cells…well, this is completely unproven, and therefore…

There is no reason under the sun to claim that the virus is there in the soup at all.

Hence, the claim that the PCR test is detecting a piece of RNA from the virus is unwarranted. Because, again…where is the virus? Where is the truly isolated virus?


And on that basis alone, the PCR test is irrelevant, useless, and deceptive.

It is set up to look for and detect a piece of RNA material that has never been proved to come from this un-isolated phantom ASSUMPTION, called “SARS-CoV-2.”

A few more moments of clear thought, and you realize the whole string of “science” that leads to the lockdowns and the economic devastation is not science at all.

It is what is called, in the intelligence community, a cover story. A story launched to justify crimes.

In this case, capital crimes against humanity.

    Sometimes only the poetry of the moment makes sense to me:
    Oh Fiery Forge

    I am a castaway on the shores of oblivion
    Old fossil entombed by the amber eons
    Hypnotized by the selfies of modernity,
    Doomed passenger on Charon’s boat,
    Stalked by time
    Is precious beyond measure,
    Past, present and future
    Conspiring to create what?
    A wrinkle out of time?
    Touchstone of my brooding being,
    Gestating in silence,
    Womb of endless possibilities,
    Sacred emptiness,
    Eye of Kronos’ maelstrom,
    Where IT
    The OTHER that is no OTHER,
    Conscious witness
    To this absurd carbon phantasm
    Savors Eternity’s
    Capricious sculptures in time;
    The magic of a lone spider web
    Shimmering in the morning sun,
    Cascading Blue Ridge waterfalls
    Whose cooling spray soothes the brow,
    White cliffs by the ocean
    Glimmering in the offshore breeze,
    Spray of vibrant wildflower cast across
    A high mountain meadow,
    And the starry canopy
    That illuminates
    My midnight love affair with entropy,
    I AM PRESENT, suddenly
    A beautiful bloom
    Atop whorl of thorns,
    Where the great mystery beckons
    My tortured blossom
    Teasing out its erotic esters,
    This blessed moment pure
    Fiery forge of my being
    Stoked with the embers of Eternity
    Smithy of my soul
    Where I create myself
    Pounding and shaping
    My nothingness
    Against the anvil of time
    Creating what?
    Some zero point daemon?
    Seeking that elusive
    Vanishing point
    Where the ugly specter
    Of my mortal history is forgotten
    And I am no more,
    Where past and future meet
    Like particles of matter and antimatter
    Dancing across some distant galaxy
    Obliterating each other
    Disappearing forever
    Who knows where?
    I am that singularity sublime,
    Having outgrown
    This fleshy husk
    Temple of my once tormented being
    Where Earth and sky commune
    And all is ONE,
    as I ride the winds of doom
    Beyond the pillars of time,
    My heart a loom of forlorn love
    Fashioning the tendrils of strife
    Into the wings of madness,
    Helping me take joyful flight
    Above kronos tortured lair
    Where the burst of starlight
    Adorns Luna’s hair.

      Another piece of mindblowing gorgeous wordplay that description doesn’t do justice to your beautiful evocative words they go beyond this programmed robotic reality I love reading your poetry.

      Thanks for sharing

      • ReluctantWarrior says:


        Thank you for your kind words about my writing. I cringe in great humility when I refer to my writing as poetry. What you have said is the greatest ‘payment’ I could ever imagine. It makes it all worthwhile for me.

  2. Ort says:

    I’m not faulting Jon for raising this crucial, fundamental criticism of one of the “legs” of the Megadeath Virus of Doom Scamdemic. It’s one of the keystone Little Big Lies in the Big Lie mosaic.

    Alas! official and mass-media infoganda still relentlessly cites the fraudulent “test” that isn’t a test to support the falsehood that the Phantom Menace continues to flourish, mutate, and infect thousands of people every day.

    The malignant conjoined fictions of “positive test results” and “new cases” proceed apace, seemingly unchecked and unimpeded by voices of truth crying in the wilderness.

    Maybe it’s a “Hundredth Monkey” phenomenon, and eventually the bamboozled plurality of terrified scamdemic thralls will eventually hear voices like Jon’s and see through the monstrous fraud.

    • Rick in Phoenix says:

      There is another round of testing going on this morning at Fry’s in Phoenix, in the parking lot, sponsored by City of Phoenix. They’re all being paid. The people doing the testing simply perform a task for pay. The City of Phoenix itself has to pay for running this mobile lab– but I don’t understand where they get the money. They say follow the money– Maybe I’ll try to trace that through today.

  3. AJ says:

    Numerous times I have informed others exactly what Jon has stated in this article. And I did my own research too. Most are completely oblivious of all these facts. Many have been vaccinated. Seems endless waste of my efforts, but I intend to resist this science fraud. Now, evidence of election fraud in California recall. Never stops until you completely destroy treason and never let it surface again. No more apologies/excuses accepted from tyranny. And where is the GOP? OUT TO LUNCH! Enjoying another bribe! Slaves don’t need anyone to represent the rights that don’t exist. Stand up now!! Or there is no freedom in your future!

  4. Siouxma says:

    That’s why everyone in our elected Govt. including Dr. RAND PAUL, are part of the Ruse/Hoax known as the Planned Scamdemic.

    I would also remind everyone that also available at the time the State of Emergency was declared late January 2020, the PCR test was granted an EUA from the FDA. On p.40 is a section called Performance Analysis where the admussion is made in black and white: “no virus isolate is available”….

    So as Jon described, they made up a concoction of coronavirus “soup” – something easily found in all humans (and goats and pawpaw fruit). Then the FDA ordered the tests to be run at False Positive 40 cycles.

    Now, 20 months later, the CDC tells the Labs the EUA for the PCR test will end on 12/31/2021 as this test could never identify Covid from any other coronavirus. The very basis for the Lockdown admitted to be worthless even though this was knowable in January 2020. I knew it, Ron Desantis knows it, and so does Pompous Rand Paul.

    • Bob says:

      Legend has it they got the seed sequence for the Covid PCR over the phone from China.

      Totally reliable.

      Seed sequence is the regex pattern (which can include wildcards!) that the PCR machine uses to amplify matching sequences in the sample.
      I think the Covid one was about 20 characters long, with 3 or 4 wildcards. Not much, and of dubious sourcing.

    • Epicurious says:

      Can you provide a url for the document you refer to above please?

  5. Tim says:

    The PCR test can’t tell you if any of the fragments amplified were in any way related to an active virus. So it’s a dud. Even if there just happens to be a virus there, you can’t tell anything about it, or if it’s the one you want. Dud.

    • Arby says:

      We shouldn’t even be calling it a PCR test. I don’t. I did for some time, until a discussion of that was happening on The Freedom Papers and we came to the decision that we are only aiding and abetting the enemy by agreeing with them that the PCR research tool is a test. I slipped and called the PCR a test only a few times since.

  6. Rick in Phoenix says:

    A few reference points…

    1. PCR swab tests inject graphene oxide and ethylene oxide into the brain along with possible nanobots called black goo.

    2. Kerry Mullis invented the PCR test and died suddenly in 2019. He is thought to said the PCR can’t be used as a diagnostic tool. I’ve seen attempts to debunk that but can’t follow the line of thought very well. It DOES appear that false positives can be created with more cycles to “amplify” the RNA.

    3. Jon’s point is well taken too but I’d like to paraphrase his point in one sentence for delivery to others: “Covid testing uses PCR polymerase chain reaction– which finds a piece of RNA for a virus that has never been found”… something like that. It has to be pithy.

    • Tim says:

      It can’t be used as a diagnostic tool, because it can’t tell if the amplified sequences come from live virus/microbes. => Dead virus, inactive virus, fragments of stuff can create a positive test, and it can’t be discriminated from a whether a live/active virus is present. => The primers of the PCR are themselves amplified, and give a positive result!

      Also crucially, for diagnosis, some idea of the amount of active virus has to determined. Without knowing how much active virus is present it can’t be used to tell if the real culprit of disease cause has been found. PCR can’t tell you how much active virus is present. For diagnosis you need to know that lots of virus is present and it is actively disease causing. PCR tells you neither.

      • Researcher says:

        What virus? You just ignored everything Jon wrote and explained.

        There are no viruses. What’s a virus? A strand of RNA or DNA? No. A collection of surface proteins with fusogenic properties? No.

        It’s supposedly a highly contagious, replicating particle that causes a cytopathic effect. Yet this cytopathic effect is only seen when cells are poisoned and starved, therefore it’s the method of poisoning and starving cells that causes the cytopathic effect. Not a virus.

        Alleged viruses have no motile function, no Krebbs cycle and virologists can’t decide if they are actually living or dead. But these deadly “viruses” can only be assumed to exist in a toxic cell soup. And all the genomes of all the alleged viruses are constructed using de novo assembly, in silico.

        Yet other particles that are smaller or the same size such as exosomes, are routinely isolated, purified and found.

        Viruses are non existent because no virus has ever been isolated and purified or proven to cause any illness, (satisfied Koch’s or River’s postulates) therefore, no virus has ever been found. Therefore they do NOT exist. It’s all hypothetical. A fabrication.

        This is simple logic. An assumed entity has to be physically found to be claimed to exist, and that step has still not been achieved.

        Illnesses from toxaemia (mass poisoning) have been falsely claimed to be viral in origin.

        That’s the fraud of virology. To sell useless and toxic vaccines and to avoid litigation from claimants who have been poisoned by toxic drugs, chemicals, pesticides, pollutants and radiation. They are not carrying or catching a virus. It’s a scam and it’s not based in science or the scientific method.

        It’s illegitimate.

        • Tim says:

          That is the bull shit you get from ignorant idiots since small pox, polio, and other virus diseases have been suppressed.

          Jon did not say small pox never existed, or wasn’t a virus. Jon didn’t say polio isn’t a virus disease, or never existed.

          Or is that wrong? How about that? Does Jon say there are no virus diseases of any kind?

          Saying that Cov-SARS-2/covid19 isn’t a proven virus disease is not the same as saying there are no virus diseases.

          In what article has Jon written that small pox isn’t or wasn’t a virus caused disease? If Jon denies small pox and polio and other virus diseases, then I’d like to see that article.

          • Gibby says:

            Polio was caused by DDT not a virus. When DDT was banned, polio soon disappeared too. It had nothing to do with the quaxxine. I would bet my house that you could find the same cause and effect for small pox as well.

          • DL says:


            ‘Viruses’ do exist but not as outside invaders as ‘science’ and MSM would have you to believe $$$$

            At a point in toxicity, if live organisms such as bacteria cannot get the job done, our cells create viruses, viral proteins from the cytoplasm are taken into the nucleus to create and be imbedded with your RNA/DNA, then off to dissolve the toxin in whatever tissue it is found. They are not compatible with others’ RNA/DNA.

            Check out the site above, spend some time cuz there is a lot to learn and it is positive!

            Medicine/pharma would have us believe that bacteria and viruses are out to kill out…Germ Theory. We should be dead by now! We have been lied to for a very long time $$$$$$$

      • Arby says:

        It’s possible that you actually think that you’re an expert in this area. You’re not. I do understand that when you have a certain level of knowledge, you will share it. And there’s nothing wrong with showing it off a little. But that doesn’t stop you from showing humility, without which you will not learn. You will not improve. And you will find yourself becoming part of the problem rather than part of the solution. If you’re not a trouble-maker, then I suggest that you make some great effort to get up to speed here. Although how you could be so far behind isn’t easily explained – apart from the trouble-maker explanation.

    • Bob says:

      Mullis did say that, definitely. He said “if it’s done well you can find just about anything in anybody”.

      What we meant by that is that the sensitivity is so high you can find anything.

      But just because you find the sequence doesn’t mean that person is sick, infectious, or actually replicating viruses.

      As Lord Fauci said, above 27 cycles you are probably only detecting “dead nucleotides” and they have zero significance.

      Above 27 cycles, the results aren’t really “false” positives, they are meaningless positives.

      Imagine if someone said your cutlery was filthy because they managed to find a food particle with an electron microscope. It’s like that.

      • Arby says:

        ‘Anything’ doesn’t mean that ‘everything’ exists. For example, there’s no Sars CoV 2 virus. Mullis was never going to find (?) that with his PCR tool.

        Does PCR ‘find’ stuff or use heat to grow and multiply stuff already there. So much of Rockefeller jargon, I find, is meant to obfuscate. Grow, or multiply, becomes amplify. (As a non expert, I can get things wrong too. But as someone who uses language carefully – with over 175 blog posts just on covid – I come at much from the angle of ‘How is language being used?’.) Isolate becomes purify. And on and on it goes.

  7. Roundball Shaman says:

    “In case you thought the PCR test detects an actual virus…wrong”

    So what DOES the PCR test detect?

    It does detect something very important. In Jon’s own words… “In this case, capital crimes against humanity.”

    And in this regard, the PCR test is VERY ACCURATE. Perhaps the most accurate test that the Big Pharma Industrial Complex Cabal has ever come up with. It detects ONGOING CRIMES AGAINST THE HUMAN RACE. The test is a smaller part of the much bigger crime.

  8. Toni says:

    Good for reminder, Jon, and to share to others.

    Too bad we lost Kari Mullis as he was outspoken about the use of PCR and at the heels of Fauci….but many times the ones who know are “dismissed” from this life by those whose heels are being bitten. But,how much more clear can this grand misuse of a tool be! It is important to recall the steps leading up to this very day’s hoax, false-science concoctions and all!

  9. SpiritTraveller says:

    One can’t pass Microbiology unless able to ID UNKNOWN as pre-req for RN-program BUT rules doesn’t apply to these OVERLORDS?

  10. Bob says:

    You are doing good work Jon.

    I appreciate your efforts.

  11. DL says:

    …and to go along with this fraudulent PCR test, since when have we ever made HUGE decisions/mandates/lockdowns/masking/social distancing, etc. ALL ON THE BACK OF ONE TEST?!?!?!?!?! 😑

  12. Jan says:

    Can anyone tell me how the Drosten test compares to the PCR one?

    Both are part of the scam, but I thought it was Drosten in Germany who is at the core of the test fraud.

    Also, how is the test calibrated to detect the RNA fragment supposedly from the “sars 2 virus”?

  13. ray says:


    I have appreciated your work over the years.

    If what you say is true regarding isolation, how are different methods of genetic sequencing returning the same result?

    Anyone who knows the answer feel free to chime in.
