March 24, 2020 [America in ‘lockdown’: Day 12.]

—The CDC (US Centers for Disease Control) admits the coronavirus test is flawed. That’s the overview and the takeaway—

As my readers know, I’ve described why the widespread diagnostic test for the coronavirus is insufficient, misleading, useless, and deceptive.

That test, used all over the world where it is available, is called the PCR.

It DIAGNOSES patients. “Yes, you have the virus.” “No you don’t.”

A very alert reader sent me a link to a US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) document about the test. The CDC establishes the guidelines for how the test should be done, and what the results mean.

Here is a CDC paragraph about results. I suggest you read it several times.

“Positive [test] results are indicative of active infection with 2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease. Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.”

I’m going to blow past the blatant contradiction in that CDC paragraph and cut to the chase.

The key line in that paragraph is:

“The agent detected [the coronavirus] may not be the definite cause of disease.”


CDC: Yeah, you see, folks, ahem, the test could say the coronavirus is there in somebody’s body, but the virus may not be causing disease…

On one level, the CDC is admitting the test could turn up false positives: the test could SAY a patient has the coronavirus, but he really doesn’t.

This isn’t a footnote stuck at the bottom of a report. It’s right there near the top of the section about the meaning of the test.


Well, yes, I’ve pointed out that the test has an inherent problem. At best, it might show that a virus is present in the patient’s body. But the test is incapable of determining HOW MUCH virus is ACTIVELY REPLICATING in the patient’s body.

And why is that important? Because, to even begin to say a virus is causing actual illness in a human, there would have to be millions and millions of a virus replicating in his body—and the PCR test has never been proven, in the real world, to be able to make such a judgment call accurately.

But, if you read that CDC quote again, you’ll see the CDC is ordering labs to report a positive test result to public health agencies—where it will be counted as a “coronavirus case” come hell or high water.

Thank you, CDC. So very, very much. The next ship for Uranus leaves tomorrow. Pile on board and make the trip. You can run tests there to your heart’s content.

    I showed people this and they REFUSED to admit they were duped. I’m convinced that most people loved the drama the fake pandemic brought to their lives. They don’t want their beloved COVID to end. My brother claims to have had it 3 damn times and he’s triple jabbed. Ugh!

      It’s called: “Stockholm Syndrome”, and it’s very prevalent – especially in a highly-propagandized society.

      Couple that with: “Munchhausen by Proxy Syndrome” – and you have the perfect recipe for containing most of the People within the psychological (“mental”) prison matrix.

      ALL “WARS” start with the “war upon the Mind” (“Psychological Operations”).

  2. A Reader emailed me the following comment:


    A strong immune system could eject any virus, possibly leaving behind a tiny fragment of it, which doesn’t mean one has had the disease. The late Dr. Kary Mullis, who died in Aug 2019, developed the PCR test said many times on video that it isn’t a diagnostic test. So whether or not Covid, the PCR isn’t a valid test for it. And as you’ve said many times, the Covid virus hasn’t ever been isolated. I suspect what doctors are finding is a Corona cold virus which has supplanted the Rhinovirus in recent years to cause most colds.

    A longtime friend who received the first two shots and a few boosters since then has just been diagnosed with Ovarian cancer that has traveled to her stomach. She has been getting sicker each time in the last two years with each booster and taking to her bed for up to a week as her body has been trying to tell her not to get anymore shots. After I suggested this to her, she just stared at me without comment. Ignorance like this is especially painful to those trying to give a teaching moment to someone who just won’t listen.

    Viruses do not exist.

    The United States has been assaulted by mad scientists with an experimental drug.

    We are a nation of medical malpractice victims.

    The masks hid the scowls but now that masks are going to the wayside the scowls remain. Did the vaccine remove our sense of humor? Smiles are rare among the vaccinated who all seem to have moved to Frownland, Nebraska.

    The majority have been terrorized by an imaginary microscopic entity and tricked into taking a poison that may results in a slow death. Genocide.

    I suspect our doom has been planned before their vaccine campaign was initiated.

    At some point the doctors got the go ahead to gather data for a post apocalyptic test tube baby world and we are the lab mice already slated for extermination anyway.

    Someone has made plans for our future and we aren’t in it.

  4. AD 1776 says:

    The CDC stated it best in their one-page “memo” in handling “COVID-deaths” diagnoses, towards the bottom (they even had the gall to emphasize the statement):

    This, when they stated that “lab tests were NOT required to diagnose COVID, if it can be determined that the patient was suspected to have COVID through symptoms” 9OR, something to that effect).


    I have a copy of that “memo” (which included the new “diagnostic code” for “COVID”).

    That one (emphasized) statement in the last paragraph gave up the whole story!!!

    The world has been HAD – on a completely contrived and deliberate HOAX!


    The still-elusive evidence that anyone truly indeed isolated this “novel corona virus” is wanting.

  5. Sam says:

    And, the criminals are still at it. I have heard of people recently being tested and found “positive for covid”. Have given up on trying to point out anything to main stream media zombies. And as Laura said above, “they REFUSED to admit they were duped”. We all have been duped for many years about many things. Better to admit to it and move on, can be healing, or a step in that direction.

  6. A Reader emailed me the following comment:


    The PCR test cannot diagnose a specific virus or bacteria — only that there is a bacteria or infection present. It could be you cut your hand, it gets infected — PCR test will be positive.

    I worked at a Senior living place until I was required to get a jab — I quit. In 2020 we had zero iutbreak of CV. Feb 2021 everyone got the vax, by April we had a large outbreak, 39 people at one time and then it was a continuous wave of people testing positive. Of course they ended getting 2nd vax and last count 4 boost, each time a wave of people tested positive after. Some experienced side effects including death. The deaths were not attributed to the vax of course.

    I had several people, 92 & 93 years young, who tested positive but never had symptoms or became ill.

    Unfortunately no one questions the CV outbreaks coming after the jab or booster. Sadly no one questions anything.

    Thank you for your reporting.
