Selling Fear—the “Epidemic Experts” weigh in

“But…but…this time it’s different. This one is different…”

“Yes, well…West Nile, SARS, Swine Flu, Ebola, Zika, MERS…every time one of these phonies reared its head, it was going to be different. Quantitatively and qualitatively different. And it wasn’t.”

March 9, 2020

Let’s go to NBC News for the word on what’s happening in Italy. March 8, 2020, “Coronavirus updates live: Million quarantined in Italy, as D.C. reports first case”. (see also this from Wall Street Journal)

Let’s all try fear as a lifestyle. How about an unproven virus blowing around the world? It could be a kick. Just turn on your TV.

The news is a huge deli.

Authoritative and supreme baloney sellers are cutting extra-thick slices for the public.

Zero Hedge: 3/8, “An infectious diseases expert at the forefront of the search for a coronavirus vaccine said on Friday that it was the most ‘frightening disease’ he’s ever encountered, and that ‘war is an appropriate analogy’ for what the country is facing, as ‘50 – 70 percent of the global population’ may become infected.”

“Dr. Richard Hatchett, who sat on the White House Homeland Security Council in 2005 – 2006 and was a principal author of the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza Implementation Plan, and currently heads the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, told the UK’s Channel-4:”

“This is the most frightening disease I’ve ever encountered in my career, and that includes Ebola, it includes MERS, it includes SARS. And it’s frightening because of the combination of infectiousness and a lethality that appears to be manyfold higher than flu’.”

Let’s look at these “frightening diseases” Dr. Hatchett has encountered. Out of a population of seven BILLION people…

Ebola (2014-16): 11,325 deaths.

SARS (2003): 800 deaths.

MERS (2012-2020): 866 deaths.

These are official figures. In my articles on past “epidemics,” I’ve presented evidence that factors having nothing to do with viruses caused illness and death; and the tests for diagnosing cases are wholly inadequate and unreliable. (archive here)

Dr. Hatchett also did work on the Swine Flu “pandemic” (2009). I’ve covered that fraud extensively. In the summer of 2009, while the CDC was claiming there were thousands of cases in America, star investigative CBS reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, discovered the CDC had secretly stopped counting cases. Why? Because the overwhelming percentage of samples taken from the most likely Swine Flu patients, sent to labs, were coming back with: no sign of Swine Flu or any other kind of flu. About a month after Attkisson’s investigation was shut down at CBS, the CDC estimated there were, yes, 22 MILLION CASES of Swine Flu in America.

Another expert is currently weighing in on the coronavirus: Harvard epidemiologist, Marc Lipsitch. He told CBS reporter Jim Axelrod that he predicts 40 to 70 percent of the world’s population may become “infected” with the virus, and millions of people will die.

This prediction, of course, is based on a computer model. What could possibly go awry? We should all step up to the counter and buy more baloney. The same brand the CDC was selling when they proclaimed there were 22 million cases of Swine Flu in America. Funny thing—every computer model I’ve ever bumped into always seemed to predict MORE. More of whatever it was calculating. I’ve never met a computer model that stated: “there will only be three of these, instead of 40 million.” “The projections of five years of drought have been downgraded to six days.”

There was an oddity in this CBS interview with the Harvard epidemiologist, Marc Lipsitch. It’s what both the reporter, Jim Axelrod, and Lipsitch didn’t ask or say. After all, when an expert tells you millions are going to die, you want to know more, right? Here is my proposed continuation of the conversation. It might go this way:

Axelrod: When you make a computer model, I assume it yields specifics, correct?

Lipsitch: Well, yes. That’s why we do models.

Axelrod: In this case, how many deaths—how many millions of deaths— from the coronavirus did your model predict?

Lipsitch: There is a range of numbers.

Axelrod: I understand. But you should understand that when you sit here and tell our audience that millions are going to die, there are further questions.

Lipsitch: The model adjusts the range, as we gather more information.

Axelrod: How many people will die? Our viewers, I believe, know there would be a difference between, say, two million, ten million, and a hundred million. When you just say millions, it leaves a hole…

And then, Axelrod would keep on going and find out how many millions of people Lipsitch thinks are going to die, based on the computer model.

In other words, let’s get the number or the range of numbers on the record. Let’s have the Harvard expert go all the way.

But for some reason, Axelrod and Lipsitch were satisfied to avoid doing it. Perhaps it was a case of “don’t frighten the children.” Unfortunately, too late for that. I prefer to think CBS and Lipsitch didn’t want to lift some very visible and specific roll of baloney and slice it thickly in front of the viewing audience. A year from now—speaking of millions—a whole lot of people might repost that interview and say: CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS? AND YOU TRUST CBS AND HARVARD? LOOK AT THE BALONEY.

The current soft meme, a white-collar corporate and government virus, spreading rapidly, is: “social distancing.” Also known, in a slightly harder version, as “self-isolation.” If you think you might sneeze in the next four months, work from home. Stay at home.

I thought we were already in the middle of a social distancing pandemic, judging from how many people walk down streets and sit in restaurants, heads bowed, looking at their cell phones and exercising their thumbs.

But if people listen to the experts, they’ll undoubtedly shrink and contract even further. They’ll live in kitchens and bathrooms, shut down the rest of their homes, and only venture out to buy food and toilet paper.

The intrepid hero of our time will be the pizza delivery Magellan, circumnavigating empty neighborhoods, braving the night air.

“Do you guys make baloney deep dish? I’ll take six.”

    Love these ‘ computer models’.. In the UK they were totally wrong.. Fergusons imagination..not that any one believed them.. selling the fear was the main point.. and it worked with some people.. Even now I see people with masks.. I want to ask them.. ‘ ”Are you contagious in some form”

    “Selling Fear—the “Epidemic Experts” weigh in”

    The World today has far too many ‘Experts’. Or better said, ‘Experts’ who are ANYTHING BUT Experts.

    When someone is called an ‘Expert’ this is already conditioning your mind to think, ‘Oh my, he or she is intelligent! They are smart! They know more than I do! That means, I have to TRUST them! I have to FOLLOW THEM!’

    And every one of those thoughts is bogus.

    Yes, there actually are such people as Experts in their field. But they are few and fair between these days. What we really have mostly are con artists and money whores. People selling their ‘degrees’ and their integrity (if they had any) for money and power.

    Money whores and sell-outs. And perhaps, THAT is actually what they are actually ‘expert’ at.

    This World today needs far fewer ‘Experts’. What we need are people using their God-given brains to decide for themselves who is making sense and who is telling the truth and who should be believed. Learning things for themselves and becoming their own authority.

    And that sure as hell is not today’s ‘Experts’.

    I admire Jon Rappoport in the endless reporting of the world hoax.

    My situation is of an older observer, qualified in medicine and surgery in 1949.

    I have seen many changes in the profession, now aghast at how it has been referred to as the Medical Mafia.

    From what I know of the hidden Truths, this humanity and its sacred planet has been the subject of galactic interest, and Jesus who delivered testimony in 1958 recorded by The Aetherius Society.

    We are assured of the development of a Golden Age after the turmoil of such phases ongoing, as we endure the spasmodic efforts by the controlled governments to persist in our enslavement.

    A very interesting show for the thinkers who know a bit about Truth.

      “peter daley: My situation is of an older observer, qualified in medicine and surgery in 1949. I have seen many changes in the profession, now aghast at how it has been referred to as the Medical Mafia.”

      The utter degradation of the Medical ‘Industry’ is but one manifestation of the ruination of just about every vital profession in the World today.

      Organized Religion has suffered from the same dramatic decline. A once-respected profession of dedicated caretakers of sacred spiritual lessons has descended into a collection of weak drones with a watered-down and emptied faith as stewards of ‘not rocking the boat or offending anyone’.

      Journalism? Long gone.

      The State Education System? A massive abuse of propaganda and the promotion of social decay.

      Even the once-highly-respected Airline Industry has devolved into the chaos of too-few competent pilots, badly degraded safety standards, scheduling nightmares, and a passenger experience more akin to serving time at the Big House.

      And other professions too numerous to name here.

      It has been a stunning, lightning-fast collapse from the historically fairly recent days of the Greatest Generation and the idealism of the 1960s into the current unwoke Wokeism and ‘Social Justice’ INJUSTICE hell-hole we are all experiencing. Not to mention the Global deviants promoting the One World Order crap.

      As you point out… this very wrong Planetary turn is not the last chapter of our story. A State of Decay does not endure because it can’t. Decay leads to Collapse. And Collapse leads to something else emerging out of it.

      One Wild Ride we’ve hitched on to here. And we haven’t yet bottomed out.

    Hi Jon, this fellow needs some help. He has broken a huge story on the mafia which has organized the Fentanyl epidemic and his life is apparently in danger. They tried to bribe this man with $50 million to just disappear and he told them to stuff it.

    Here is a recent video interview.

  6. tomaso says:

    I remember talking to a friend (sheeple) on March 15, 2020. He was very upset that this virus (Scamdemic) was causing the NCAA basketball tournament to be canceled. I said this was way too coordinated and that they were peddling fear. I never bought into any of the constant 24/7/365 fear porn. I have lived my life fully since, unmasked, unjabbed and unafraid. He is , maybe, beginning to question the narrative. Don’t get me started on Elections, Ukraine, BLM, East Palestine or Climate hoaxes.

  7. daniel miller says:

    I gave them 14 days to ‘flatten the curve’. After that I hoisted my middle finger to these control freaks. Although I checked 4 of the high risk factors (high bp, diabetes, obesity, and white male) I did not (and will not) get the experimental ‘not a vaccine’. I think I had IT…twice. It was like bad flu. I still can’t smell real good, but I know my body has built up natural immunities. I still see people driving (by themselves) wearing masks. They can’t understand that the virus is way smaller then the holes in their masks. Poor dumb sheeple. Fear works on some (mostly liberals).
