China coronavirus hype straight out of the CDC flu playbook

by Jon Rappoport

In today’s episode of Numbskulls and Deceivers in Medical Science, I ask the question: Are Chinese researchers copying an old CDC scam, or have they independently come up with their own lies which happen to mirror CDC hype?

In my series on the China epidemic (archive here), I’ve pointed out that pneumonia—the key indicator of the “coronavirus”—can be caused by many other factors:

Other microbes, fungi, toxic pollution, etc.

And Chinese authorities no longer require direct testing for the coronavirus. Instead, CT scans of the chest are employed. If these scans show signs of pneumonia, the “coronavirus epidemic” label is absurdly applied to the patient.

I’ve also pointed out that, historically, pneumonia has been a major disease in China. Long before “the emergence of the new human coronavirus,” people in China have been dying of pneumonia at the rate of about 300,000 a year. Now those people, passing away from the disease in 2020, can be falsely called “deadly epidemic cases.” How convenient.

Well, it turns out the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been running its own pneumonia scam for a long time.

Some years ago, when I was writing about the flu, I received emails from Peter Doshi and Martin Maloney. They fed me data from the CDC’s own charts detailing flu deaths in the US. And they pointed out the lies.

Doshi went on to write an analysis for the journal BMJ Online (December 2005). Here is a key quote from his report:

“[According to CDC statistics], ‘influenza and pneumonia’ took 62,034 lives in 2001—61,777 of which were attributable to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was the flu virus positively identified.”

You might want to chew on that sentence for a while.

You see, the CDC has created one overall category that combines both flu and pneumonia deaths. THEY CALL THIS CATEGORY “FLU.” Why do they do this? Why do they deceptively assert the pneumonia deaths are complications stemming from the flu? Because they want to sell doctors and the public on the “dangers of the flu.”

Pneumonia has a number of non-flu causes.

But even worse, in all the 2001 flu and pneumonia deaths, only 18 revealed the presence of an influenza virus.

Therefore, the CDC couldn’t truthfully say that more than 18 people died of influenza in 2001. Not 36,000 deaths, the old CDC PR statistic. 18 deaths.

Doshi continued his assessment of published CDC flu-death statistics: “Between 1979 and 2001, [CDC] data show an average of 1348 [flu] deaths per year (range 257 to 3006).” These figures refer to flu separated out from pneumonia.

This low death toll would drop MUCH lower, if you added the need to confirm the presence of a flu virus in those cases.

Clearly, the CDC combines flu and pneumonia in one category, and calls it “flu,” in order to lie about the number of flu deaths in the US, and thus push the flu vaccine.

So we have two fake hustles, years apart, in the US and China, both based on the deceptive use of pneumonia.

Liars tend to tell the same kinds of lies, over and over. Medical liars often import diseases which have nothing to do with their claims, in order to build up case numbers and pump up threats and fears.

And then sell toxic drugs and vaccines, as solutions.

I’d be quite happy to offer this article and its blunt facts to the New York Times, or the Washington Post, or CBS, NBC, or ABC, providing they assure me they’ll print it and then force their hungriest hounds to track down and indict the high-level deceivers, by name, who are pushing these criminal falsehoods. Ordinarily, I would charge $10000000000000 for the article, but in this case I’ll settle for a six-hour, face to face, live streaming interview with the head of the CDC, in prime time.

Wuhan and the polluted air as a cause of epidemic illness

by Jon Rappoport

February 23, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

At the very beginning of my coverage of the “China epidemic,” I cited evidence that the air quality in Wuhan is chronically dangerous.

Among other sources, I referred to a Yale review which stated that the mixture of toxic elements in the air is unprecedented in human history. The synergistic effects of these individual toxins is unknown.

I also mentioned the large street protests against air quality in Wuhan that took place last summer. These protests were also carried out in other Chinese cities. The government was obviously alarmed at the nascent rebellion.

Those protests are now gone. Because the cities are locked down. It’s all about “the virus” as the cause of illness.

Horrific air quality brings on lung infections of all kinds, including pneumonia. Pneumonia is THE illness attributed to the coronavirus. How convenient.

The Chinese government has recently ruled that testing patients for the coronavirus isn’t necessary for a diagnosis of “epidemic illness.” A CT scan of the lungs is sufficient. If the patient thus shows signs of pneumonia, he is labeled “a coronavirus case.”

Air quality? Brushed aside.

Assessing studies of annual pneumonia deaths in China—covering years long before the supposed emergence of the new human coronavirus—I settled on the estimate of 300,000 deaths a year.

Assuming this death rate is more or less constant, hundreds of thousands of people could now be called deceased “coronavirus cases” without a flicker of interest in the actual cause of their illness. Those CT scans, picking up signs of pneumonia, and absurdly leading to the label “coronavirus,” are a perfect tool for deception.

Recently, I found an article from capitalcambodia.com, dated February 7, 2020: “‘Polluted air’ could be an important cause of Wuhan pneumonia”. It makes some interesting comments about Wuhan air quality. The article also speculates that “the virus” is carried on particulate pollutants, a claim I find completely unsupported—but the remarks about pollution are worth repeating:

“…three factors. First, the increase of static wind in the horizontal direction, which is not conducive to the diffusion and dilution of atmospheric pollutants. Second, the emergence of a temperature inversion layer in the vertical direction, which makes it difficult for pollutants to move upwards and are blocked at low altitudes and near the ground. Third, the increase of suspended particulates in the air. These three conditions are all available during the high incidence period of Wuhan pneumonia.”

“According to data released by the Wuhan Bureau of Ecology and Environment, the moment when a large number of pneumonia cases emerged in Wuhan was during the period from Jan 19, 2020, to Jan 23, 2020, and the Wuhan air during this period was at the stage of serious pollution. The indices are all higher than 100. This means that the outbreak period of Wuhan pneumonia coincides with the severe period of air pollution and this is one of the reasons. The second supporting reason is that the high incidence areas of Wuhan pneumonia coincide with the severe air pollution areas. We observed by randomly taking one day as a sample and found out that the area with the highest level of air pollution in Wuhan was Huanan Wholesale Seafood Market. This shows that even in ‘normal weather’, the air pollution in the seafood market area was the relatively worst area in Wuhan…Therefore, it is not accidental that Wuhan Huanan Wholesale Seafood Market has become a high-incidence area of Wuhan pneumonia…”

You’ll recall that, at first, reports circulated about the coronavirus emerging in that Market and “jumping species from animals to humans.” These reports didn’t mention highly dangerous air pollutants “jumping” into the lungs of humans.

How are viruses discovered and identified in the first place?

The earthshaking Etienne De Harven interview by Celia Farber

by Jon Rappoport

February 18, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

The question I’ve been asking since 1987—

If the experts are going to claim a particular virus causes a particular disease—how do they know that virus exists in the first place?

For example, the supposedly new coronavirus in China. For example, Ebola. For example, HIV. For example, the coronavirus supposedly causing SARS (2003). How do researchers know these viruses exist?

“Well, of course they know. They must.”

That is not a satisfactory answer—even though most people would offer it.

The question can become very interesting, when you stop and consider researchers working away in biowar labs fiddling with viruses. How do they know they’re tweaking viruses that actually exist?

On a more mundane frontier, when scientists tell us they’re rushing to develop a vaccine against a virus that is harming the population, how do they know that virus exists to begin with?

I came to this question when I was researching HIV in 1987. I began to think about it seriously in 1990. During all these years, I’ve reached out to independent researchers, and I’ve tried to stitch together their answers. I can’t say it’s been a smooth trip.

But I have found some answers; and I have certainly found some fake mainstream assertions, which glitter like baubles on plastic branches of 99-cent store Xmas trees.

Here are a few clues. You need to take a tissue sample from a live human being. You need to filter that sample correctly so you arrive at a much smaller sample you believe might contain a virus. You need to put a drop of that sample under an electron microscope and observe what looks like a virus.

How much virus? How many identical particles of virus? Opinions differ on this. It could be one definite virus, one particle. It could be many, many identical particles.

Sidebar: If you’re trying to prove this virus is actually causing DISEASE in a person, you have to go further. You have to show the very same virus is active and replicating at a very high rate in the person’s body, and his immune system isn’t defeating it. Beyond noticing the patient is sick, how do you test for all THAT? I’m still looking for a definitive technical answer—if there is one.

All right, let’s’ get back to the electron microscope. Let’s say you’ve observed many identical particles of what looks like a virus in the electron microscope photograph, called an EM. You can then say, “Found it.” But you need to be sure. You need to figure out that this virus isn’t just something that ordinarily lives in the human body like a couch potato and does nothing—a passive endogenous virus. No. You want to show this virus comes from the outside as an invader—an exogenous virus. And how do you perfectly make that differentiation every time? Another question that might have no precise formula as an answer.

Big question: CAN WE BE SURE ALL VIRUSES THAT ARE SAID TO EXIST AND SAID TO CAUSE EPIDEMICS ARE ACTUALLY FOUND AND OBSERVED AND IDENTIFIED ON ELECTRON MICROSCOPE PHOTOGRAPHS? CAN WE AT LEAST SAY THAT?

No.

In which case, the researchers have been, at least some of the time, up the creek without a paddle. They’ve jumped the gun. They’ve bolted out of the starting gate too soon. They’ve laid their money down on a horse that may not even be in the race. They’ve written a check no one can cash. They’re talking about lockdowns and quarantines without having proved their favorite virus of the moment exists. Sure, people on the back end will make big money from these unwarranted presumptions, but money is not science. It might control science, but it ISN’T science.

All right. I’ve now set the stage for an excerpt from an interview, a profound interview with a late mainstream master who, in the face of fake science, suddenly was characterized as a rebel, Etienne De Harven. The interview was conducted several years ago by the brilliant reporter, Celia Farber. You can find the whole interview here. I strongly suggest you read it sixteen times. Yes, it gets technical. You’ll also notice names of elite scientists you haven’t run across. Learn the meaning of the words you’ve never seen before. Dig in. This isn’t television-type brush-off conversation. This isn’t a YouTube throwaway.

I have another reason for exposing readers to this interview—it’s what a conversation about serious scientific issues looks like…this is what trying to bridge the gap between researchers, honest reporters, and the public looks like. There should be hundreds and thousands of such print-interviews taking place, laid before readers. They can handle it. Dumbing down people is partly an illusion: they can wake up. They WILL wake up if they’re sufficiently interested.

Etienne De Harven’s background: president of the Electron Microscopy Society of America; researcher, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; Cornell professor of cell biology; professor of pathology, University of Toronto; recognized pioneer in the field of electron microscopy.

The interview focuses on HIV; whether it was ever found and isolated. The implications and questions spread out to any and all viruses.

DE HARVEN: Unacceptably frustrated by the total lack of success in all attempts to demonstrate virus particles in human cancer by EM, the “impresarios” of the cancer/virus “dream” (Gallo, Fauci, and others) totally engaged in the molecular approach.

Consequently, they invented molecular markers to compensate for the missing viral particles…This would have been acceptable if the specificity of these new molecular markers would have been clearly established. Unfortunately, this was not the case. The most misleading molecular marker was probably the first one, i.e. the enzyme [called] reverse transcriptase (RT). Following Temin and Baltimore 1970 papers in “Science”, the RT enzymatic activity has been, most abusively, used as a specific retroviral marker. Both Temin and Baltimore demonstrated RT activity in samples of supposedly “purified” retrovirus.

Embarrassingly, they both omitted to verify the “purity” of their samples by EM. Some of their samples were simply purchased from a commercial company… True, the label on the vials read “pure retrovirus”… However, it was known that these commercial “pure retrovirus” were heavily contaminated by cellular debris!

And since it is also known that all cells contain RT (see Varmus), cellular debris are most likely carrying similar RT enzymes.

Temin and Baltimore did not, therefore, prove that RT is a specific molecular marker for retroviruses. It would have been so simple to check, by EM, the degree of “purity” of the samples they used. This would have, most probably, shown important cell debris contamination, and would have obliged Temin and Baltimore to be much more cautious in the interpretation of their results. In 1975, the members of the Nobel Committee, most regrettably, failed to scrutinize this “purity” problem…

In 1983, at Pasteur Institute in Paris, reliance on the RT marker was a key element in the claimed “isolation” of a new retrovirus [HIV]. Still, Montagnier himself recognized “We did not purify”… He dangerously omitted to consider the misleading interference of cell debris, just as Temin and Baltimore did in 1970.

But a paper on the discovery of a new retrovirus looks much better if it contains at least… one EM picture! So, members of Montagnier’s team spent hours at the TEM [transmission electron microscope], looking at their mixed cell cultures, and they found the virus!

See Fig. 2 in their “historic” 1983 “Science” paper! It is, by the way, a good quality EM picture. It shows unquestionable retroviral particles, budding at the surface of a cell. But the legend of this Fig. 2 states that this cell is a cord blood lymphocyte. Indeed, cord blood lymphocytes were admixed to these complex cell cultures (why?)

Montagnier and his co-workers should have known that human embryonic tissues, and the placenta in particular, are very rich in endogenous retroviruses (HERVs), and that cord blood lymphocytes should therefore be expected to carry the same endogenous retroviruses (under the TEM, endogenous and exogenous viruses, looking identical, cannot be distinguished.)

The budding of these particles has perhaps been stimulated by some of the growth factors also present in these cell cultures. An essential control would have been to repeat the experiment using lymphocytes from the peripheral blood instead of from cord blood. This control is unfortunately missing.

In short, I would frankly state that the Pasteur 1983 paper (whose 30th anniversary has just been celebrated in a “grand messe” of official HIV retro-virology!) contributed very little in AIDS research because its conclusion (i.e. “the isolation of a new retrovirus”) is based on 1) the use of a non specific RT molecular marker, and 2) is falsely supported by EM pictures of, most probably, endogenous human retroviruses.

More details and appropriate references on this analysis can be found in my 2010 paper published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons [— “Human Endogenous Retroviruses and AIDS Research: Confusion, Consensus, or Science?”] (jpands.org/vol15no3/deharven.pdf).

CELIA FARBER: When antibody and VL [viral load] tests became widespread as diagnostic tools for “HIV infection” over the ensuing decades, what happened with EM inside of HIV science and literature? It is my understanding that nobody has ever found HIV in human blood, on EM. Is this an accurate way to say it?

DE HARVEN: In my views, Western Blot [antibody] tests lost all credibility after the publication of Eleni Papadopulos’s et al. (1993) paper, and antibody tests (“Elisa”) [lost credibility] after Christine Johnson’s report (1996). The notion of a “Viral load” (VL), however, brought a new parameter in AIDS diagnosis (Ho,1996). It called attention to the actual number of HIV particles supposedly present in the blood plasma of AIDS patients, PCR technologies [tests] being presumed to offer a way to quantify that number.

If such a viremia (i.e. presence of virus particles in the blood) is indeed present in AIDS patients, it reminisces the retroviral viremia well known in leukemic mice. In such case, retroviral particles should be readily demonstrable, by TEM, of appropriately prepared patient plasma samples. Unfortunately, it has never been possible to demonstrate by TEM one single retroviral particle in the blood plasma of any AIDS patient, even if one selects patients presenting with a so-called “high viral load.”

I was apparently the first researcher to make that statement, during the opening session of President T. Mbeki’s major AIDS conference, in Pretoria, SA, in May 2000. My statement to that effect has never been refuted.

CELIA FARBER: How come?

DE HARVEN: That question must be answered because “something” is measured by PCR technologies in the blood of many AIDS patients. Actually, what is being measured is definitely not the number of retroviral particles (phantom-like, i.e. EM invisible!). In fact, what is being PCR identified, amplified, and supposedly quantified is the number of genomic nucleotide sequences that are extremely similar to sequences known to be part of the retroviral genome. Most regrettably, these sequences were misinterpreted as an indication as a certain number of … HIV particles! This did a lot to consolidate the quasi-religious dogma of HIV as the cause of AIDS, a dogma that has been sharply criticized, a few years ago, by David Rasnick who wrote, authoritatively, about “The AIDS Blunder”…

This interpretation would have been acceptable only if retroviral particles would have been readily demonstrated, by EM, in the blood plasma of these patients; but, since this is not the case, another explanation for the presence of these nucleotide sequences has to be founded.

I presented at the RA conference in Oakland, CA, in 2009, and further developed in my 2010 JAPS paper such a much needed explanation for the presence of these retroviral-like nucleotide sequences. My explanation is based on the well known, variable amounts of circulating DNA in the blood of severely ill patients, and on the fact that we all carry [irrelevant] retroviral-like sequences in our DNA, as endogenous, defective retroviruses, i.e. HERVs (HERVs, for “Human endogenous retroviruses”) (See “Virus in all of us”, R. Lower at al., 1996 PNAS paper).

No surprise, therefore, that these nucleotide sequences are recognized by PCR [tests] in the blood of many AIDS patients, who are indeed severely ill. As already demonstrated in 2008 in Robin Weiss laboratory, HERVs can interfere as confounding factors in the search for novel retrovirus in chronic human diseases…

CELIA FARBER: …Paint a picture for us. The story of the [HIV] virus, the “new deadly virus,” what happens first: What steps did they [—] Montagnier, on one hand, Gallo on the other [—] take to “find” the new entity? Then once they ‘found’ it, what shape was it in? It was not an entity, a thing, with a body, right? It was not coherent. Can we say that? So it lived where? It was seen only through the technologies developed to find it, Elisa, WB [both are antibody tests]? Later PCR/VL [tests]? But what happened back THEN when they tried to see it on EM? Why didn’t everybody look for it on EM? Too expensive?

DE HARVEN: No, EM is not cheap but not that expensive! And its cost has certainly nothing to do with the fact that it has barely been used for the past 30 years in AIDS research! It has not been used because “They” knew it was not going to show anything of retroviral significance in samples coming directly from AIDS patients. And since AIDS had become big business, the stocks of involved giant pharmaceutical companies could not be jeopardized! It had to be saved at all cost, even at the cost of trusting non specific molecular markers… Fear is good business, and viruses generate fear most efficiently… So, the HIV flag has to be maximally agitated. In worldwide medias, with thousands of computer-generated, colorful caricatures of an idealistic retrovirus… By contrast, the medias have been dominated by the most rigorous censorship when it comes to inform the public about views of rethinking dissidents. This total censorship put a safety lock on any information that could jeopardize the colossal, entirely HIV derived profits of the major pharmaceutical companies.

But I am glad we have Internet!

Daring to say that HIV does not exist amounts to some sort of a capitalistic crime…

Yes, the HIV dogma is probably the darkest page in the history of modern medicine.

CELIA FARBER: Etienne, if you could sum up: Does HIV exist? If so, where and how and as what?

If you could examine 1,000 HIV positive people’s blood under EM, what would you expect to find? If you don’t find HIV on EM in human blood, can any argument be made that the virus is “hiding” and so forth, or that the drugs suppressed the virus to undetectable levels? This is what the defenders of the orthodoxy seem to be saying about the results seen in the Nushawn Williams case.

DE HARVEN: This is the main question! Questioning the very existence of HIV is not something that should be debated only between specialized retro-virologists. It is an essential question that concerns all of us.

CELIA FARBER: Why?

DE HARVEN: Simply because 100% of AIDS research funding is based on the dogmatically postulated existence of HIV. If HIV does not exist, it would follow that AIDS research is the most appalling case of total misappropriation of public research funds! And it would also follow that the monumental amounts of money, so far exclusively devoted to HIV research, would be much better used in other directions. Could you imagine what world we would live in, today, if the total amount of money wasted over the past 30 years on HIV research had been, instead, used for feeding starving Africans, for clean water supply equipment, for public hygiene infrastructures, and for public health education? This would happen only if HIV research is totally stopped! And for this, the scientific and public health organizations have to face the fact that, indeed, HIV does not exist!

…we all have to, courageously, face the fact that the very existence of an exogenous HIV has never been scientifically verified.

—end of interview excerpt—

Again, you can read the whole interview here.

De Harven unmasks HIV research. How many other unproven viruses have likewise been prematurely massaged into existence and prominence? How many times have researchers pulled “special markers” like rabbits out of hats—spuriously claiming these markers establish the existence of otherwise never-observed viruses?

And therefore, when these researchers state they have published the genetic sequences of these viruses—what are they really sequencing? Harmless and passive endogenous viruses that wouldn’t hurt a fly and prefer to lie around in the body for the whole course of a lifetime watching television?

And when someone steps forward, and claims a new and never-before-seen virus is actually a manmade weapon, and he knows this from studying its genetic sequence—is he right, or is he looking at the sequence of an irrelevant microbe that has been rudely coaxed from its long languishing snooze in the warmth of the human body?

CDC begins testing Americans for the Coronavirus—but how?

by Jon Rappoport

February 17, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

As my readers know, I’ve been presenting evidence AGAINST the idea that the China “epidemic” is caused by a new coronavirus. (archive here)

Of course, the World Health Organization and the US Centers for Disease Control are relentlessly pushing the idea that: this is a spreading epidemic, and it is caused by COV-19, a new human coronavirus.

Now, the US Centers for Disease Control is rolling out a program to test Americans (e.g., travelers who have been to China). As time passes, the program will likely pull larger numbers of Americans into that net.

The CDC program immediately raises two problems: why bother testing for a virus if it isn’t really causing human disease; and what kind of test is being done?

In this article, I’m focusing on the type of test, and whether it’s accurate, even if you assume the coronavirus is causing disease.

Reading through CDC literature (see also here), I believe the two most prevalent US testing methods are: antibody, and PCR.

Antibody tests are notorious for cross-reactions. This means factors in no way relevant to a given virus can make the test read positive. In that case, the patient would be falsely told he “has the coronavirus.” But it gets worse. Traditionally, antibody tests reading positive were taken as a good sign for the patient: his immune system had contacted a germ and defeated it. Then, starting in 1984, the science was turned upside down: a positive test was, astoundingly, taken to mean the patient was ill or would soon become ill.

The PCR test (which requires excellent technicians who will not make any number of possible mistakes) takes a tissue sample from a patient which might contain a tiny virus particle(s) much too small to be observed—and blows it up many times, so it can be seen. However, the test says nothing reliable about HOW MUCH virus is in the patient’s body. Why is that important? Because millions and millions of replicating virus in the body are necessary to even begin talking about actual illness. A positive PCR test, nevertheless, will be taken to mean the patient “has the epidemic disease.” —An even deeper issue: where is the PRIOR PROOF that the PCR is testing for a virus that actually causes disease?

The prospect of these two tests being done on Americans is not comforting, to say the least. People will be roped into believing they are “epidemic cases,” and therefore need to be isolated, and treated with highly toxic antiviral drugs.

In the event they become ill, from the drugs, they’ll be told “the coronavirus is doing the damage.” In some cases, this will result in even further dosing with the same drugs, at higher levels—a disaster.

A very small percentage of doctors are aware of the profound shortcomings of these two diagnostic tests. Most of them will shrug off their doubts and perform the tests anyway, because refusal would endanger their careers and medical licenses.

This is the sordid drama now unfolding in the American landscape.

It’s not just America. The same tests are being done all over the world.

Coronavirus: run, here come the experimental drugs

by Jon Rappoport

February 16, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

As I’ve shown in recent articles (archive here), the virus hunters have fallen far short of proving a coronavirus is causing this “outbreak.” But here come the antiviral drugs.

They’re ordinarily used for other diseases (malaria, HIV) or, in one case, no disease yet (unapproved, unlicensed). But it’s time for “heroic measures.” A better term would be “reckless experimentation.”

Public health officials are expressing a mixture of hope and…vampire-ish worry that the epidemic may not last long enough to properly test the efficacy of the drugs.

LA Times, 2/13/2020, “Doctors fight coronavirus outbreak with drugs that target HIV, malaria and Ebola”:

—Characterizing the remarks of a Harvard professor of medicine, the Times author writes: “The lack of certainty surrounding treatment for coronaviruses is partly due to the boom-and-bust nature of outbreaks — they can spread like wildfire and then disappear… Although that is good for the public’s health, it also means scientists sometimes don’t have the time or the means to thoroughly test a treatment in humans.” Tsk, tsk, what a shame.

Here’s another telling quote from the Times article: “The ramp-up in [drug] research and investments into outbreaks can wreak havoc on private drug companies, especially if the virus disappears at some point, as SARS did, said Dr. Jesse Goodman, a professor of medicine at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. The federal government helps offset these costs through initiatives…” What do you know about that? The SARS virus “disappeared.” And pity the poor drug companies. Their research was interrupted.

Among the drugs suddenly being used on people diagnosed with the coronavirus: Kaletra (anti-HIV); chloroquine (anti-malaria); remdesivir (unapproved, anti-Ebola).

rxlist.com provides a list of adverse effects of Kaletra:

* diarrhea
* headache
* weakness
* nausea
* vomiting
* stomach upset
* drowsiness
* dizziness
* a bad taste in the mouth
* trouble sleeping
* skin rash
* changes in the shape or location of body fat (especially in your arms, legs, face, neck, breasts, and waist)

“Tell your doctor if you have serious side effects of Kaletra including”:

* unexplained weight loss

Adverse effects of remdesivir—the drug has not been approved for public use. I find at least one human clinical trial has been done on people “infected by the Ebola virus,” and another clinical trial is underway now. So far, I see no published list of adverse effects—probably because the drug is still in the test phase. Using this drug on “coronavirus patients” would certainly be experimental.

This is what I’m sitting here picturing: A person in Wuhan, who is having respiratory problems, owing to the unprecedented mixture of toxic pollutants in the air of the city, enters a clinic. He is given a chest CT Scan. He’s told he has a lung infection—pneumonia. Because a CT Scan is now absurdly sufficient for a diagnosis of “epidemic coronavirus,” he is given that label. NO test for the purported coronavirus is done. The person is shunted into a treatment room, and a doctor tells him his condition is quite serious, and he will be treated with a drug: chloroquine.

Go back and read the list of adverse effects again.

Suppose this patient tells his doctor he has a relative who lives out in the country, where the air is much better, and he wants to stay with her.

The doctor will, of course, tell the patient this is not possible. The city is locked down. If the patient left Wuhan, he could “spread the virus to others.”

He will be given the drug. What about informed consent? Will the doctor read the patient the complete list of adverse effects? Are you kidding? Wouldn’t that be “counter-productive?”

Mustn’t interrupt the “research” of pharmaceutical companies.

We can only hope and pray the “epidemic” is SAID TO LAST long enough so these benevolent corporations can complete their testing. What else is a pool of human guinea pigs for?

And worry not, the pill kings have their bases covered. When “test subjects” become sicker or die, the kings can simply say, “The coronavirus was responsible.”

It all works out for the best, doesn’t it?

We haven’t even gotten to the coronavirus vaccine yet. The professionals are working hard on cooking one up. When they do, there will be no danger of an interruption in their work, if “the virus disappears.” The vaccine will be injected into healthy people. If and when some of these people keel over, all sorts of reasons can be trotted out: underlying genetic condition; the coronavirus hidden in their cells suddenly activated; undisclosed immune-system deficiency; an unrelated disease; allergic cross-reaction; and, of course, “a rare and unavoidable adverse effect among all the life-saving injections given, at no charge, to the global population…”

I’m looking through mainstream articles. I’m trying to find one that publishes the complete lists of adverse effects of the experimental drugs now being deployed on “coronavirus” patients. Odd. I can’t find one. I wonder what that means. Maybe I should ask a doctor. He would possibly be able to set me straight. Perhaps I should query a public communications pro at a pharmaceutical company. Certainly, he could contact major press outlets and urge them to print the adverse-effect lists, in the interest of full disclosure.

Right?

Right?

Sudden spike in coronavirus cases only means new method of counting

by Jon Rappoport

February 13, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

“All right, people, we want to inflate case numbers in the epidemic. How do we do it? Forget testing for the coronavirus. How about this? We run a test for ‘the epidemic disease’, pneumonia. If any kind of pneumonia turns up positive, we’ll just SAY this is a case of coronavirus, with no proof. Any objections? Good. Get busy.”

Mainstream news outlets are reporting a spike in the number of coronavirus cases in China. The news stories also mention this sudden rise is the result of a new method of counting.

NO tests for the presence of the coronavirus are now necessary, in China. Read that sentence again.

The new method of counting? CT scans (computed tomography scans) of the chest.

The scans are used to diagnose standard traditional lung diseases.

For example, pneumonia.

And pneumonia is called THE “coronavirus illness.”

There is only one problem. Deaths from pneumonia, in China, appear to be 300,000 per year / 3 million per decade (I’m making a major downward estimate, based on correcting an error and referring to a trusted source.) These deaths certainly occurred in time periods before the purported emergence of the new coronavirus. Pneumonia has been around forever.

Get it? A test for ordinary pneumonia—CT Scan—now becomes a test that delivers a diagnosis of “new epidemic coronavirus.”

ABSURD.

Ordinary pneumonia has many causes listed in medical literature—bacteria, fungi, various viruses. You can add in massively polluted air, which hangs over major Chinese cities, such as Wuhan. No “coronavirus” needed.

In the rush to diagnose as many people as possible, we have this fake method of counting cases.

In my 1988 book, AIDS INC., I published the new 1987 CDC definition of AIDS. It took up 14 pages. Forcing yourself to plow through it, you would see the CDC was using every trick in the book to inflate case numbers. A person could even be diagnosed without a positive HIV test—a bizarre contradiction, since HIV was supposed to be the hallmark of AIDS. I counted about 25 diseases/infections that could be called indicators of AIDS.

In every so-called epidemic, there is something called a “surveillance definition” of the disease. This is used to cast a wide net of potential symptoms and markers, in order to “identify the possibly infected and therefore contain the spread.” However, quite soon, “surveillance” and “possibly infected” are forgotten, and medical officials and reporters simply take the new expanded case numbers, yielded by the new definition, and report them as real.

More grist for the propaganda mill, for inducing fear, obedience to authorities, and more profits for drug and vaccine makers.

I recall that, during my research for AIDS INC., I queried the FDA about the most widely used diagnostic test for HIV, the ELISA antibody test. A positive-reading test would, of course, imply “AIDS.” Another patient, another case number added to the total.

I received a letter in the mail from an FDA employee. The one page had no printed FDA seal or masthead. Obviously, this person did not want to connect his comment to the Agency. He informed me that the HIV ELISA test was used for checking stocks of blood supply only, and HAD NEVER BEEN APPROVED FOR MAKING AN INDIVIDUAL DIAGNOSIS. His meaning was clear. The FDA refused to certify the test as accurate for individuals. Yet, again, it was the most widely used tool for labeling people “HIV positive” and “AIDS-infected.” It was also the most widely used tool for counting (and inflating) overall AIDS case numbers.

Playing games with people’s lives.

In AIDS INC., I ran this ELISA scam to ground. I found multiple “authoritative medical sources” who offered various formulas for AIDS testing. For example, if the ELISA registers positive, take another ELISA. If that is also positive, then go to the gold standard antibody test, called the Western Blot. But in the medical literature, there are ample references which refute the Western Blot as reliable. It, too, has deep inherent flaws.

Notice that, in both 1987 AIDS, and the latest coronavirus “epidemic,” diagnostic tests which supposedly identify the presence of a virus can be bypassed. This is quite astonishing, when you think about it. After all, the presence of the virus is supposed to be THE sole evidence of an epidemic in the first place.

This is why I’ve published my analyses of SARS (2003) and Swine Flu (2009). In both cases, the virus “disappeared.” Many patients diagnosed with SARS and Swine Flu didn’t have any trace of the virus.

The rabbit hole is deep.

People dying equals coronavirus?

by Jon Rappoport

February 13, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

People sick, people dying. How many people? Unknown. Massive lockdowns of Chinese cities. Citizens trying to escape. For the global audience, this equals coronavirus, not because they know the virus is the cause—proof is beside the point. The virus is the cause because IT MUST BE. WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?

A plane full of passengers explodes right after takeoff and falls into the ocean. A faulty engine must be the cause. WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE? Missile strike? Ridiculous.

A CIA director is found face down in a marsh along a river. He died of a heart attack. WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?

When brutal air pollution in Wuhan obviously brings on lung disease; and when the primary symptom of the coronavirus is supposed to be lung disease; and when citizens of the city have been falling ill and dying from lung disease long before the virus appeared—does this matter?

OF COURSE NOT. IT MUST BE THE VIRUS.

When governments and corporations have been using THE VIRUS as a cover story to obscure and explain away their crimes against populations, for decades and decades—does this matter?

When previous so-called epidemics—for example, West Nile, SARS, Zika, and Swine Flu—turned out to be complete unproven duds—does this history matter?

OF COURSE NOT. IT HAS TO BE THE VIRUS. WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?

A face on a television screen watched by millions of people says CORONAVIRUS. Therefore, case closed.

In 2009, in La Gloria, Mexico, on a giant commercial pig farm, pig feces and urine are allowed to bake and steam and bubble in the sun. These deposits are called lagoons. They’re so large, you can see them from outer space. Toxic chemicals are routinely sprayed and laid out like whipped cream on the lagoons. Workers are falling ill. New workers are brought in to spray even more toxic chemicals. Workers die. Then the Centers for Disease Control sends in their tuned-up virus hunters to look for the germ causing the “mysterious” illness. They claim to find a Swine Flu virus. IT MUST BE THE VIRUS. WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE? THE DECAYING PIG SHIT AND URINE? The layers of poisonous chemicals? Don’t be ridiculous.

Later, in the summer of 2009, CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson discovers that the overwhelming percentage of tissue samples from US Swine Flu patients are coming back from labs with no sign of ANY KIND OF FLU. The virus isn’t there.

And yet, of course, we have this, written in the summer of 2009: From healthwyze.org:

“The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has a patent for, Genetically Engineered Swine Influenza Virus and Uses Thereof (patent #8124101). It was filed in 2005 for approval. The makers of the human variant of the swine flu virus waited until the patent was finally approved in January of 2009, before unleashing the virus into the wild. The makers of the swine flu vaccine had begun the lengthy patenting process long before the swine flu supposedly existed, which means that the outbreak was no accident, and the virus is clearly not natural. Patents only apply to man-made items, and natural things cannot be patented. The virus conveniently went public only after its vaccine patent was approved, after patiently waiting 3 years for that to happen. The pandemic was declared just five months after the patent was approved, in June of 2009. The tremendous hysteria following the outbreak was promoted by the same groups who had invented this genetically engineered virus. The word ‘invented’ was actually used to describe the virus in the patent application.”

What do you know about that? Back then, there were reports that the Swine Flu Virus—which couldn’t even be found in the overwhelmingly number of US patients—was actually a biowarfare germ. Sound familiar? And yet Swine Flu was a DUD.

Another epidemic that was going to infect the world? West Nile Virus. Another dud. But here from an old whale.to article:

“None of these theories [about West Nile] has deterred Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy from urging federal officials to determine if the introduction of WN virus is a terrorist attack. On September 12, 2002, Leahy declared: ‘I think we have to ask ourselves: Is it a coincidence that we’re seeing such an increase in WN virus – or is that something that’s being tested as a biological weapon against us’.” Sound familiar?

And here, from and old article at rediff.com, a piece about another epidemic dud, SARS 2003 (800 people died out of 7 billion):

“The virus of atypical pneumonia, better known as SARS, or Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, was created artificially, possibly as a bacteriological weapon, Sergei Kolesnikov, academician of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, told a press conference in the Siberian town of Irkutsk on Thursday, the Russian RIA Novosti news agency reported.”

“According to Kolesnikov, the virus of atypical pneumonia is a synthesis of the viruses of measles and infectious parotiditis or mumps, the natural compound of which is impossible. This can be done only in a laboratory, he said.”

“Kolesnikov added that in creating bacteriological weapons, a protective anti-viral vaccine is, as a rule, worked out at the same time, so a medicine for atypical pneumonia may soon appear.”

“He did not, however, rule out the possibility that the virus could have spread accidentally as a result of ‘an unsanctioned leakage’ from a biological weapons laboratory.”

Sound familiar? And yet the “epidemic” was a dud.

In 1987, a doctor calls me, while I’m writing my first book, AIDS INC. He tells me he’s built a small AIDS clinic where a group of poverty-stricken patients can rest in clean surroundings, eat nutritious food, and grow beans and sell them for a small amount of money. This doctor is mainstream. He’s given his patients no medical treatment. He knows that THE VIRUS, HIV, is said to be a remorseless killer. But, he tells me, all his patients have recovered; they no longer have symptoms. He’s puzzled, confused, and distraught. He asks me, “What should I do next?” He knows the AIDS drugs are highly toxic. He senses that giving them to his now-healthy patients would bring on a disaster. Oh but you see, IT MUST BE THE VIRUS. WHAT ELSE COULD BE CAUSING THESE PEOPLE TO BECOME SICK IN THE FIRST PLACE? Drinking the water in their villages—water mixed directly with sewage? Hunger? Starvation? Don’t be ridiculous.

In an interview, a famous New York doctor tells me all scientists agree that HIV is the cause of AIDS because, well, the scientists who don’t agree can’t get their findings published. He’s telling me all VISIBLE scientists agree.

Several years ago, during the Zika virus hysteria (another dud epidemic, of microcephaly, that surely would “decimate populations”), researchers in the epicenter, in Brazil, report that only between 10 and 15 percent of Zika patients have any trace of the virus—they can’t find it in the other patients. This amounts to a bald confession that Zika is eliminated as the cause of disease in pregnant women. But no one listens. IT MUST BE THE VIRUS. WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?

Well, it turns out it could be ANY INJURY OF ANY KIND TO A PREGNANT MOTHER—causing her baby to be born with a smaller head and brain damage, called microcephaly.

But here, in a 2016 article from thesleuthjournal.com, we have this:

“It’s [Zika virus] being spread by genetically engineered mosquitos. Is it the latest example of US biowarfare? America’s sordid history suggests it.” If it was being spread in that fashion, it wasn’t working to cause disease. It was a failure. BUT IT MUST BE THE VIRUS. WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?

And of course, the World Health organization hit the hysteria button at the time. From marketwatch.com, January 28, 2016:

“The World Health Organization will convene an emergency committee in Geneva on Monday to discuss the mosquito-borne Zika virus, which the organization’s head said is spreading ‘explosively’ and which many doctors and health officials believe is linked to an unprecedented outbreak of babies born with small heads in Brazil…’The level of alarm is extremely high,’ WHO Director-General Margaret Chan said in remarks to the public-health agency’s executive board…WHO’s announcement underscores the speed with which a virus that began as an obscure tropical malady afflicting Africa and then several remote Western Pacific islands has transformed into a major international health concern, particularly in the Americas.”

Dud. If WHO could squeeze out more fear, NOW, in 2020, about an ever-expanding Zika crisis, don’t you think they would? Even THEY’VE given up the ghost on that campaign.

BUT IT MUST BE THE VIRUS. WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?

It could be lie after titanic lie.

CDC announces test kits for coronavirus don’t work

by Jon Rappoport

February 12, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

NY Times, Miami Herald, NBC, and other outlets are reporting the story.

The Herald: “The CDC sent novel coronavirus testing kits to Florida. They might not work.” (Feb 12., 2020):

“The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday morning said issues [problems] with the tests the agency has developed for the respiratory illness spreading rapidly through China surfaced after they were sent out to state labs…Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said federal officials believe the issue [problem] stems from one substance used in the test that ‘wasn’t performing consistently.’ She said the federal agency was remanufacturing that agent to try to correct the problem.”

I have news. Correcting those flaws in the test won’t make any difference. The test, as I reported days ago (and, see also here), CAN’T WORK.

Why? Because, as the CDC mentions on its website, the test is a version of the PCR. Technicians take a small specimen from a patient that might contain a virus. If it does, the virus particle(s) would be much too small to observe or analyze. The test then amplifies the specimen many times—as you would blow up a photograph—until a virus, if present, can be observed and—supposedly—identified.

There is just one flaw, and it’s fatal. The test says nothing reliable about HOW MUCH virus is in the patient’s body. Why is this important? Because millions and millions of virus, actively replicating in the body, are necessary to even begin talking about the virus causing disease. A few vague viral particles floating around in the body are irrelevant.

BUT the test takers and the doctors and the researchers and the companies that sell the test avoid an open frank debate with highly qualified INDEPENDENT researchers. It’s much easier to say, “The amount of virus in the body isn’t a problem, we can measure that, case closed.”

Patients who only have a non-important tiny amount of what might be a coronavirus are going to be labeled with the “epidemic illness.” They’re going to be quarantined and hospitalized and scared and treated with toxic anti-viral medicines.

Most people wouldn’t care about “those misdiagnosed patients.” They would only care about robotically believing the CDC, who tells them the present manufacturing flaws in the test kits will be fixed, and then everything will be all right.

The doctor says, “Take two ‘I MUST BELIEVE THE AUTHORITIES’ with a glass of water before bedtime, and don’t call me in the morning.”

The Virus first, last, and always in the hearts of our Countrymen

by Jon Rappoport

February 12, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

“Cover stories are the life blood of intelligence work. Agencies mount a secret operation, float a cover for the public and the press, and stimulate debate for and against details of the cover story. Buried inside the debate is the automatic acceptance of the big-league lie embedded in the core of the cover.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

In my recent coverage of the coronavirus (archive here), I ran a bulldozer over major media presentations of the epidemic.

One of my main points was: there is no good reason to believe A VIRUS is causing illness and death.

“But it HAS TO BE a virus.”

There are certain lies people cannot reject, under any circumstances. Why?

“If I reject this one assertion and call it a lie, then other dominos start to fall. What else would be a lie? What other foundation stone of reality would turn out to be made of air? How many authorities would I end up disbelieving? All my life, I’ve relied on experts to tell me what reality is all about. I can’t make a switch. It’s too much. THEREFORE, the experts are always right. That’s my logic. Or my leap of faith. My religion.”

In this article, I’m not going to recapitulate all the evidence I’ve already presented about the coronavirus as a fake cover story. But I do want to give you some detail about how the cover story is being deployed, as we speak. Some people are consciously using it; others are following suit, for their own reasons, or out of sheer “addiction.”

Notice: people are now debating whether the virus has been weaponized. That’s a deeper level of the original cover story—which was simply: “this epidemic is being caused by a new human virus.”

People are debating whether the virus was created or altered in a lab, whether it leaked out of a lab or was intentionally released. Another deeper step.

People are debating whether the Americans or the Chinese cooked up the virus.

They’re debating whether China is doing the right thing in locking down 50 million people, and whether the Chinese are killing people who are “infected with the virus.”

Deeper and deeper the cover story goes. AND REGARDLESS OF WHICH SIDE OF A DEBATE PEOPLE TAKE, BOTH SIDES SUPPORT THE VIRUS AS THE CAUSE. That’s how good cover stories work: you get people disagreeing on details—while underneath it all, they automatically buy the central lie, the central unproven assertion. The big one.

We have two cases—in Canada and the US—where scientists are accused of secretly working for China and trying to smuggle, or actually smuggling, a coronavirus into Wuhan. Did they? Did they succeed? Did they fail? Regardless, the story bolsters the basic idea that this IS an epidemic caused by a virus.

Then we have the ever popular: “the effect proves the cause.” That is an egregious fallacy, but never mind. It goes this way: since people are dying (the effect), the announced cause (the virus) must be true. Absurd. A fake imitation of logic.

Same with the lockdown (effect). Why would China be locking down 50 million people unless the virus (cause) was killing people? Another absurd argument based on appeal to authority as the fount of wisdom.

If the people in charge of policy behave AS IF a virus were spreading and killing people, then the virus “must be the cause of the epidemic.”

We see photos and footage of people in hazmat suits. We see a few people lying in the street in Wuhan. We see workers loading a person on a stretcher into an ambulance. We see a crowded hospital. Therefore: VIRUS.

An important US public health official—Tony Fauci—tells the press he wants a fast analysis from experts about the outside possibility that the coronavirus is a bio-weapon. Either way, it’s THE VIRUS.

A Chinese scientist is blaming the US for weaponizing the coronavirus and launching it against the Chinese people? Did he actually blame the US? Yes or no, it’s THE VIRUS.

Here’s a quick stew of recent headlines in the press:

* Virus storytellers reject China’s official narrative…

* Could infect 60% of global population if unchecked…

* WHO: Vaccine 18 Months Away…

* Cruise Ship Rejected by Five Ports Runs Out of Options…

* CDC mistakenly releases San Diego’s first positive case from hospital…

* UPDATE: MILITARY HAS MASS QUARANTINE CAMPS SET UP IN USA…

* Some Experts Worry as Germ-Phobic Trump Confronts Growing Epidemic…

Now suppose, just suppose we were seeing a completely different set of headlines, plus absolute re-enforcement and confirmation from elite television news anchors, every night (based on my recent articles and the research of outliers):

* MASSIVE AIR POLLUTION OVER WUHAN CREATING ALL THE SYMPTOMS OF THE SO-CALLED EPIDEMIC; LARGE STREET PROTESTS AGAINST THE POLLUTION NOW GONE OWING TO LOCKDOWN

* YALE REVIEW: MIX OF HIGHLY TOXIC AIR POLLUTANTS IN WUHAN NEVER BEFORE OBSERVED IN WORLD HISTORY

* THE CHINESE EPIDEMIC ILLNESS—pneumonia—HAS BEEN KILLING BETWEEN 2 AND 17 MILLION CHINESE PEOPLE EACH YEAR LONG BEFORE THERE WAS A CORONAVIRUS

* DIAGNOSTIC TESTS FOR CORONOVIRUS COMPLETELY UNRELIABLE

* UNTOLD THOUSANDS OF CHINESE PEOPLE BEING LABELED WITH “CORONAVIRUS” AFTER USELESS TESTS OR NO TESTS AT ALL

In that case, some very interesting things would happen to the virus cover story.

A “readjustment” of information revolutionizes perception.

“But it HAS TO BE the virus. Otherwise, I need a new reality.”

Yes? And? So? What’s wrong with new reality?

The bio-weapon theory of the China epidemic

Staging the production

by Jon Rappoport

February 10, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

NOTE: IF THE LATEST RUMORS SUPPOSEDLY COMING OUT OF CHINA ABOUT THE FURIOUS PACE OF ESCALATING DEATHS ARE TRUE…IF THEY ARE…AND THAT’S A VERY BIG IF….THEN LOOK TO SOMETHING OTHER THAN A VIRUS AS THE CAUSE…

I’ll consider these rumors here, in this article, for the sake of covering all possible bases…I must emphasize, again, this is a very big IF…

Continuing my series on China and the supposed coronavirus epidemic… (archive here)

Many reports and rumors are circulating: huge numbers of people are trying to escape lockdown in Chinese cities; bodies in Wuhan are piling up; Chinese agents or assets stole biological materials from two labs in the US and Canada, for the purpose of smuggling them into China; a new biowar research facility has opened in Wuhan.

At the heart of these reports is: the dreaded coronavirus has been weaponized and is on the loose—either as the result of an accident or an intention.

Many people, including self-styled experts, assume that an ATTEMPT to weaponize a virus equals success. They’re watching too many sci-fi movies. Automatically jumping from attempt to success is unwarranted.

“But the proof is there. People in China are dying.”

I’ve already covered this. Millions of people, moving back into history, have died in China, as a result of the number one condition now cited as evidence of the new epidemic: pneumonia. They were dying long before anyone knew about a coronavirus or tried to weaponize it.

“But now people in China are dying at a furious pace, suddenly.”

Is this a report or a rumor? If it’s a true report, I suggest starting with the cause as something in the environment—not a virus. An escalation in the already toxic air pollution above Chinese cities. Possibly, the effects of deploying 5G technology widely in Wuhan. The intentional deployment of a highly dangerous chemical, whose effects would be far more predictable, in terms of intensity and duration, than a virus.

Below, you can read a backgrounder I wrote many years ago, on the staging of a hypothetical bioterror attack. It proposes a chemical as the hidden cause.

THE VIRUS, as I’ve explained in recent articles, is one of the most successful cover stories in modern human history. It is invoked to obscure the actions of major corporations and governments: industrial pollution, stolen farm land, hunger, starvation, intentionally sustained. Lack of basic sanitation. Grinding poverty. Wars. Toxic medical drugs and vaccines. And so on. It’s called population control. “HIV” in Africa is a perfect example of this kind of operation. The world focuses on the virus. The true crimes go on unnoticed.

Here is the backgrounder. Use your imagination and adjust the context from a small town to a major city.

How to stage a fake bioterror attack

Imagine this. A big-time doctor from the US Biological Warfare Group waddles into a meeting room, where a collection of Army, CIA, NSA, and DHS representatives sit quietly in their chairs. He says: “So I understand you boys want to put on a little domestic bioterror show, to keep the natives from becoming too restless. Well, the first thing you need to know is, germs don’t obey orders. Forget all that sci-fi nonsense. Germs work and they don’t work. It’s a crapshoot. You could have a big fat dud on your hands. I can tell you how to make it work, though, if you give up on your fancy high-tech wet dreams…”

The primary fact is: no matter what kind of germ you’re talking about or where it came from, releasing it intentionally does not guarantee predictable results. Far from it.

For instance, people whose immune systems operate at different levels of strength are going to react differently.

The perpetrators may find that far, far, far less than .001% of people exposed get sick or die.

But there is another strategy that should be understood:

The use of a germ as a cover story for a chemical.

In other words, there is no germ attack. It’s called a germ attack, but that’s a lie. The perps bring in researchers to the affected area, who go on to claim they have isolated a germ that is the cause of death and illness. It’s a sham. What really happened was:

The spread of a toxic chemical that can’t be detected, unless you’re looking for it.

The chemical has severe, deadly, and predictable effects for a short period. Then it disperses and loses potency and the “epidemic” is done.

In some town, a fairly isolated community, the word goes out that people are suddenly falling ill and dying. The CDC and the Army are called in to cordon off the area and quarantine all citizens. A peremptory announcement is made, early on, that this is a biowar attack.

Major media are allowed outside the periphery. Network news anchors set up on-location and do their wall to wall broadcasts “from the scene.”

The entire nation, the entire world, is riveted on the event, 24/7.

People inside the cordon fall ill and die. Reports emerge from the town:

The networks state that “heroic doctors are taking samples of blood and the blood is being analyzed to find the germ that is causing the epidemic.” The DOD confirms over and over that this is, indeed, a biowar attack.

Human interest stories pile up. This family lost three members, that family lost everybody. Tragedy and horror produce the desired empathic response from “the world community.”

It’s a soap opera, except real people are dying.

The medical cartel promotes fear of the germ.

All controlling entities obtain their piece of the terrorist pie.

Finally, the doctors announce they have isolated the germ causing death in the small town, and researchers are rushing to develop a vaccine (which they produce in record time).

Everyone everywhere must be vaccinated, now. No choice. Do it or be quarantined or jailed.

In this declared martial law situation, the doctors are the heroes. The doctors and the Army. And the government, and even the media.

Then, after a few weeks or months, when the potency of the secret chemical has dispersed, it’s over.

In the wake of a staged “biowar” terror attack, new laws are enacted. The State clamps down harder on basic freedoms. The right to travel is limited. Criticizing the authorities is viewed as highly suspect. Freedom of assembly is squeezed.

“Citizens must cooperate. We’re all in this together.”

New laws mandating the CDC schedule of vaccines for every child and adult—no exceptions permitted—are rushed through legislatures.

There are people who are determined to inflate the dangers of germs. They trumpet every “new” germ as the end of humankind on the planet. They especially sound the alarm when researchers claim a germ may have mutated or jumped from animals to humans.

“This is it! We’re done for!”

However, if you check into actual confirmed cases of death from recent so-called epidemics, such as West Nile, SARS, bird flu, Swine Flu, and Ebola, the numbers of deaths are incredibly low.

If political criminals, behind the scenes, wanted to stage a confined “biowar” event, they would choose a chemical, not a germ, and they would leverage such an event to curtail freedom.

Understand: researchers behind sealed doors in labs can claim, with unassailable ease, that they’ve found a germ that causes an outbreak. Almost no one challenges such an assertion.

This was the case, for example, with the vaunted SARS epidemic (a dud), in 2003, when 10 World Health Organization (WHO) labs, walled off from view, in communication with each other via closed circuit, announced they’d isolated a coronavirus as the culprit.

Later, in Canada, a WHO microbiologist, Frank Plummer, wandered off the reservation and told reporters he was puzzled by the fact that fewer and fewer SARS patients “had the coronavirus.” This was tantamount to confessing that the whole research effort had been a failure and a sham—but after a day or so of coverage, the press fell silent.

SARS was a nonsensical farce. Diagnosed patients had ordinary seasonal flu or a collection of familiar symptoms that could result from many different causes.

But the propaganda effort was a stunning success. Populations were frightened. The need for vaccines, in the public mind, was exacerbated.

Several years ago, I spoke with a biologist about the fake bioterror scenario I’ve sketched out above. His comment was: “Do you think any mainstream scientist would dare go into that cordoned-off town and actually check the area for a highly toxic chemical? He’d be blackballed, exiled, and discredited in a minute. The authorities would call him crazy. And that’s if he were lucky.”

Such is “science,” these days. A researcher can discover anything he wants to, if it’s approved. Otherwise, the door is closed to him.

Face it, there are plenty of “chemical incidents” in the world. Oil spills, an exploding oil platform at sea, fracking pollution, air pollution, Roundup drenching GMO crops, factories emitting chemicals into rivers as if they were sewers, tens of thousands of giant cargo ships belching toxic sulfur compounds into the air, and so on. THERE IS A NEED FOR DISTRACTIONS AND COVER STORIES.

Enter THE VIRUS, and “epidemics.” They receive wall to wall coverage on the news. Why? Why not, instead, something like THIS receiving endless coverage: “HOW 16 SHIPS CREATE AS MUCH POLLUTION AS ALL THE CARS IN THE WORLD”:

21 November, 2009, author Fred Pearce, consultant to the New Scientist, writing in the Daily Mail: “There are now an estimated 100,000 ships on the seas, and the fleet is growing fast as goods are ferried in vast quantities from Asian industrial powerhouses to consumers in Europe and North America.”

“The recession has barely dented the trade. This Christmas, most of our presents will have come by super-ship from the Far East; ships such as the Emma Maersk and her seven sisters Evelyn, Eugen, Estelle, Ebba, Eleonora, Elly and Edith Maersk.”

“Each is a quarter of a mile long and can carry up to 14,000 full-size containers on their regular routes from China to Europe.”

“But [each ship] burns marine heavy fuel, or ‘bunker fuel’, which leaves behind a trail of potentially lethal chemicals: sulphur and smoke that have been linked to breathing problems, inflammation, cancer and heart disease.”

“…the largest ships can each emit as much as 5,000 tons of sulphur in a year — the same as 50 million typical cars, each emitting an average of 100 grams of sulphur a year.”

“With an estimated 800 million cars driving around the planet, that means 16 super-ships can emit as much sulphur as the world fleet of cars.”

Where was the wall to wall 24/7 press coverage on THAT?

And do you recall what the world was hyper-focused on, in November of 2009, when Fred Pearce wrote this article for the Daily Mail?

It was the exhausting tail-end of press coverage of the so-called Swine Flu epidemic that was supposed to kill millions.

As I’ve written, not only was the epidemic a dud, CBS star investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, discovered the US Centers for Disease Control was hiding a mind-boggling fact from the public:

The overwhelming percentage of tests from US Swine Flu patients were coming back from labs with…no sign of Swine Flu or any other kind of flu.

A FAKE EPIDEMIC BASED ON A “VIRUS.” COVER STORY. AMONG THE MANY ISSUES IT OBSCURES, THE DEADLY CHEMICAL POLLUTION BELCHING INTO THE SKY, FROM GIANT CARGO SHIPS AT SEA…

“Look, boys,” the wise old biowar pro says, as he addresses the collection of military and intelligences honchos in a private room in an undisclosed location. “You SAY it’s a virus, but it’s not. Get it? That’s the legend. Instead, you use a reliable chemical that’ll make people sick and kill them. Trust me, that’s the ticket. These germs are unpredictable. They’re far from a slam-dunk. You use germs as the cover story. It works every time…”

Cover story. Distraction. Diversion. Sold and bought.

In the interests of giving equal time to wise old biowar pros in China…I can imagine one of them addressing a meeting of government officials:

“Gentlemen, the coronavirus cover story is a success. Where is the press coverage of the Western-sponsored Hong Kong protests? It’s gone. Hong Kong? Never heard of it. People there are now characterized as ‘potential victims of the virus.’ In China, we have trucks circulating and spraying toxic bleach and other unnamed destructive chemicals on the population. 5G technology deployment is causing serious health problems as well. But all this resultant illness and death will be laid at the door of the non-political VIRUS. In locking down our major cities, we’ve squelched the growing protests against unprecedented poisonous air pollution in Wuhan and other metropolitan areas. It’s win-win. We got lemons and made lemonade. With our ‘unlimited cooperation in this health crisis,’ we’ve scored major points with the world community. As I told you at the outset, you SAY it’s a virus, but it isn’t. As for the ongoing trade war with the US, they may think we’re going to cave in, but do they really suppose all our pollution-belching cargo ships are going to stop carrying tons and tons of products to the world? The virus cover story works there as well. It works so well on so many fronts. It’s magic…”

Cover stories sold and bought. Sold and bought.

Again, I repeat: IF THE LATEST RUMORS SUPPOSEDLY COMING OUT OF CHINA ABOUT THE FURIOUS PACE OF ESCALATING DEATHS ARE TRUE…IF THEY ARE…AND THAT’S A VERY BIG IF….THEN LOOK TO SOMETHING OTHER THAN A VIRUS AS THE CAUSE…
