PROLOGUE: The coronavirus creating worldwide havoc at present was initially called 2019-nCoV for '2019 novel coronavirus' and is identified now as SARS-CoV-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome - CoronaVirus 2), while the disease is called COVID-19 for 'Corona Virus Infectious Disease 2019'.

COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 are real - so where is the con?
By Venatrix Fulmen (*) - 20. March 2020
SARS-CoV-2 is - based on the assessments and testimonies given by many virologists - a man-made, artificially created virus deriving from the family of the coronavirus pathogens. There are a number of coronaviruses that affect humans as well as those that affect primarily animals. A coronavirus that affects specifically the intestines of dogs is known since it appeared first in the UK in 1971.
Known to science are now seven corona viruses that affect humans, of which four cause usually only a mild, flu-like sickness, but also can cause death in frail patients. All four of these endemic viruses circulate slowly and many people are already immune against them. In a normal flu season around 7 to 15 percent of all flu viruses are these classic corona viruses.
The three others are the MERS, SARS und the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 that can cause a pandemic and serious respiratory illnesses as well as death. Infections with MERS are rare and the SARS virus hasn't been found in humans since 2004. SARS-CoV-2 causes COVID-19 and is at the core of the on-going pandemic.
The investigation, which tries to establish if Patient Zero of COVID-19 can be tracked to the vicinity of the level-4 bio-weapons-lab at FT. DETRICK, USA, or if the first infection occurred in the vicinity of the level-4 bio-lab in Wuhan, China, has still not been concluded.
Fact is that the facility at Ft. Detrick was shut down on 04. August 2019 because security protocols were not followed, thus leading to potent viruses escaping through the waste disposal system during June and July 2019. In addition it is said that only the USA had all corona viruses and all so far known five strains or haplotypes of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
While the first major outbreak of COVID-19 - the disease that developed from the SARS-CoV-2 and was made known first in China - affected primarily Far-Eastern genotypes, not yet concluded research lists five different strains of SARS-CoV-2 that most likely are attacking different human genotypes.
Though proper tests (real rRT-PCR = Real-Time Reverse-Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2) for this virus were developed immediately after the sequence of this specific virus was made known by Chinese virologists and after also the test was provided as open source for every manufacturer to copy, qualified tests were not available in many countries until mid-March 2020. If laziness, stupidity, greed or a hidden agenda hampered the wide roll-out of the only UN-approved test-kits needs to be established.
All the statistics are more or less useless due to the fact that many cases listed were never tested an often tests are not specific COVID-19 tests, while even the best tests available have false positives.
The World Health Organization (WHO) of the United Nations failed utterly to address the problem decisively and with the necessary speed. It took them a month to even send a mission to China. The only outcome of that mission and a follow-up conference in Geneva was the creation o a diplomatically acceptable name for the disease and a request for more money. "For what?" many countries asked, who then allocated the resources to their national institutions and cooperated internationally without the WHO interference or involvement.
Taiwan, the country that has serious experiences of being excluded from the UN processes due to the pressure mounted by CCP China since years against this separatist island nation, had immediately activated its own and well prepared health crisis mechanisms and must today be applauded for the way it handled the COVID-19 crisis as a role model. So far Taiwan has to mourn only one death of 108 confirmed cases of which 26 already recovered.
FACT 1: SARS-CoV-2 has meanwhile infested all continents and all countries. As of 20. March 2020 there are 172 out of the 195 states which reported confirmed COVID-19 cases. In the remaining countries - mostly in Africa - no proper testing has been carried out and it has to be assumed that the novel coronavirus is present in these countries already.
But instead of following the known infectious disease protocols, the outbreak was abused for short-sighted political and economic goals and mainstream media-hypes.
This, together with the on-going, quite obvious exercises of the military-industrial complex, which tries to figure out and to establish the means how to control and reign in whole populations of people with Medical Martial Laws, confused and resulted in over-reactions and panic on the one side and on the other in downplaying the threat where appropriate medical means were known to be in short supply.
FACT 2: It is now established knowledge that the COVID-19 disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 and its strains can affect all genotypes of people in all countries and it is evident that it can be fatal to mostly elderly people who already have other ailments.
While the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic sores the globe, the "normal" influenzas of various viral genomes also infect people, but differential diagnostics can only be done where the appropriate test kits are available and in many regions they simply aren't -despite the massive funding the World Health Organization (WHO) of the United Nations received.
Since also the "normal" influenza kills people under certain conditions - actually many more than the present SARS-CoV-2 virus - the picture becomes blurred in countries where now every case is listed as COVID-19 though no proper test or post-mortem has established the real cause or, on the other hand, where in countries like India still all deaths with respiratory complications are piled onto the charge-sheet of outdoor air pollution.
Air pollution itself is and has been a major killer. Outdoor air pollution is responsible for 3.4 million early deaths each year worldwide.
In China every year around 10% of the untimely deaths are caused by outdoor air pollution - the official figure for 2017 in China was 1.03 million deaths due to outside pollution. And India has alreay a higher percentage than China.
6% of global deaths are attributed to outdoor air pollution. In some countries it’s responsible for as many as 1-in-10 deaths.
FACT 3: By far not all death cases of people with respiratory tract problems can be blamed on COVID-19. The true picture is much more complex, but the fact remains that COVID-19 is an additional factor in untimely deaths, especially in China, Italy, Iran, Spain etc.
That locally the present SARS-CoV-2 pandemic can wreak havoc is easily demonstrated in the case of the small town of Bergamo in Italy, where the army had to be called in to transport the many coffins away - with the bodies of people deceased due to the coronavirus for cremation. The local capacity for burials and cremations based on the usual requirement is certainly far overstretched by the deaths caused by COVID-19.
While in Bergamo, according to the latest information, no 5G network has been rolled out yet, the high death toll in Italy, where just today 627 people succumbed to the virus and the overall death-toll of 4,032 is now higher than in China, raises questions that were already asked in Wuhan and require further investigations into possible effects of 5G wireless on the immune system of people. In the beginning of December 2019 Telecom Italia (TIM) announced the launch of commercial 5G services in the city of Brescia (Lombardy), the sixth city to receive the technology following Genoa, Florence, Naples, Turin and Rome.
Also from Iran mass-death is reported, where now trenches for mass graves were dug - as could be observed using satellite data - and investigations into the different strains of COVID-19 haven't even started in earnest.
However, the present pandemic also shows the faults in the social and health systems of many countries and the opportunity should be used to right the wrongs. What was for too long covered up in the health-for-money scams is now painfully breaking open.
That not the real truth is revaled is the concern of many totaltarian governments. Things are escalating quickly. Despite the need to address the growing concerns of U.S. Americans, Washington D.C. and the surveillance deep state are moving to spy on them by quietly pushing a totalitarian act of legislation. The bipartisan supported bill, called the EARN IT bill, is sponsored by Senators Lindsay Graham (R-SC) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT). This incredibly Draconian bill seeks to end what little privacy we have left online. As the Electronic Frontier Foundation reports, it will strip Section 230 protections away from any website that doesn’t follow a list of “best practices,” meaning those sites can be sued into bankruptcy. The “best practices” list will be created by a government commission, headed by Attorney General Barr, who has made it very clear he would like to ban encryption, and guarantee law enforcement “legal access” to any digital message. Other countries are preparing similar legislation.
That the Powers-that-Never-Shoul-Be abuse the virus hype is obvious, even in Bolivia where the rightwing governance that had forced itself onto the ruling seat after a botched election and after having become brutal - forcing the popular former president Evo Morals to flee into exile - now announced that the planned new election will not be held and is postponed indefinitely due to the virus. How convenient for the Bolivian extreme right, which follows the whistles of Trump and Pompeo, to stay in ill-gotten power.
While the development of an effective and safe vaccine is said to be many months away from being concluded, tested and approved, preventive and curative remedies are being peddled by unscrupulous quacks. In the USA even the highest office - for lack of better knowledge - has resorted to recommending as first line of defence to combat COVID-19 a Chloroquine-based drug used, which in the old days was used against malaria and can have serious side effects in patients.
However, it should also be investigated thoroughly, if the already patented vaccine against the flu, which contains live attenuated coronavirus had been rolled out e.g. in the USA, because then many more cases will test positive who are not showing any sign of sickness.
FACT 4: There is no doubt that unscrupulous business people and companies try to take advantage of the disease outbreak. Artificially created shortages of protective gear, virus tests, ventilators, even toilet paper draw a ghastly picture.
Of course the corporate world of the elite uses the worldwide corona virus outbreak as an opportunity to get richer. Billions of dollars are pouring into Biotech and medical companies and stock.
U.S. Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California sold off stocks worth several millions of dollars before the coronavirus outbreak crashed the stock market, according to financial disclosure reports — but the emerging scandal gets even more alarming. Feinstein, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and her husband sold between $1.5 million and $6 million of stock in biotech company Allogene Therapeutics, between Jan. 31 and Feb. 18. And as detailed on the Thomas Paine Podcast early Friday morning, the Allogene’s co-founder and executive chairman has been quarantined for COVID-19.
And they are all in it. North Carolina’s Republican Sen. Richard Burr had key information about the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) three weeks ago. This information was not shared with the general public or his broader constituents, however, and was only supplied to wealthy donors at a posh “luncheon” in Washington, D.C. In a secret audio recording obtained by National Public Radio’s Washington Investigative Correspondent Tim Mak, Burr can be heard relaying information about the severity of the Coronavirus well before even the White House was coming clean about the potential pandemic and resulting panic.
Hypes that target "virus infested cash" are the next step to abolish anonymous money is here. Watch this: U.S. Gov't Admits This is a "LIVE EVENT" & Demands That You TRUST THEM!! - and please realize that also the EU is on it full force: The rise of e-commerce and the cashless society. However, Italy has now suspended all mortage payments for their population in virus-distress and gives not much on what the EU says and is prepared .to leave the union.
The top example, however, is - like always - Bill Gates who through his foundation has the biggest foot in the door to the coming worldwide drive to force a COVID-19 vaccination on the global herd of humans.
The meticulous Germans - like always under their colonial master the USA - had all prepared for this already in 2012, as only now revealed documents prove.
Homo economicus is certainly the most dangerous enemy of homo sapiens, and with all the false data circulated on purpose, the many wrong assumptions provided by celeb-"experts" and the Orwellian Games played out in full, we might have to rename the present coronavirus pandemic CONVID-19 or COVID-1984.
Unexpectedly the virus has so far only helped to achieve the demands of peace-activists and protesters in Germany, who stood up since weeks against the largest U.S. and NATO-led military exercise since WWII, dubbed "Defender Europe 2020" for which 37,000 troopers from 16 NATO-states were mobilized and for which the USA wanted to send 20,000 soldiers as well as heavy equipment from across the Atlantic. The manoeuvre that envisioned an aggressive move against Russia was stopped at least on German grounds and also the German soldiers are forced now to work from "Home Office" - whatever that means. EUOOM, the U.S. Command in Europe, however, informed that the already dispatched U.S. tank-brigade would remain in Germany and take part in the now planned manoeuvre 'Allied Spirit'. With this message the virus and the activists have a new target.
Can a virus let peace break out? It seems so, since even in Libya the fighting parties agreed to a ceasefire due to the corona-virus outbreak. However, it would be better to achieve such without the need for state-sponsored bio-terrorism in form of a virus.
All governments of countries affected by the novel corona virus gave the clear instruction to "avoid all non-essential activities" - whereby war is certainly on the top slot of activities that must be stopped.
High time to get humanity back on track - maybe this is our chance now.

Over 30 million people lost their jobs while the wealth of America’s 600-plus billionaires ballooned by $434 billion, to $3.4 trillion.
By Wolf Richter. This is the transcript of my podcast last Sunday, THE WOLF STREET REPORT. You can listen to it on YouTube, and you can find it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, iHeart Radio, and others.
The examples are all over the place. The wealth of Amazon’s Jeff Bezos soared by $74 billion so far this year, according to Bloomberg. Mark Zuckerberg’s wealth jumped by $20 billion so far this year. Elon Musk’s wealth soared by around $50 billion. The wealth of Microsoft founder Bill Gates jumped by $8 billion. Rob Walton, Jim Walton, and Alice Walton, of the Walmart family, saw their combined wealth jump by $14 billion. Chairman and CEO of mutual fund company Fidelity Investments, Abby Johnson, who owns nearly a quarter of the company, saw her wealth soar by $11 billion. The wealth of Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin soared by $7 billion a piece, and Oracle founder Larry Ellison’s by $5 billion.
These are the wealth gains just this year.
Between mid-March and mid-May, during the lockdowns, the wealth of America’s 600-plus billionaires ballooned by $434 billion, according to a report by Americans for Tax Fairness, pushing the wealth of those 600 Americans to a combined $3.4 trillion.
And there is another layer of people who are not billionaires, but have a wealth of $50 million or $200 million, or $600 million, and they saw their enormous wealth balloon too during the pandemic. And there are millions of people of lesser wealth that also rode on their coattails up the boom of the financial markets.
The richest 10% of American households own 84% of the value of stocks owned by all households, according to Federal Reserve data. The remaining 90% of the households own 16% of the value of stocks. And the bottom half own nearly none.
And that boom in the stock market, the bond market, and other financial markets since mid-March happened because the Fed threw about $3 trillion at them in a short time, with the specific purpose of raising asset prices and making those folks whole so that they don’t have any skin in this pandemic.
Fed Chair Jerome Powell was asked directly at the FOMC press conference on July 29 about the Fed’s monetary policies’ effect on wealth inequality.
The funny thing is, Powell denied that the Fed’s monetary policies were responsible for this wholesale bailout of the wealthiest Americans causing an explosion of wealth inequality, but admitted out of the other side of his mouth, that the Fed’s monetary policies have caused asset prices to surge, and that was part of the goal of those purchases.
When Powell admitted that the Fed’s nearly $3 trillion in asset purchases caused asset prices to increase, he said the goal was to “restore functioning markets,” which means markets where prices are rising, and markets where price discovery is not allowed to happen, and markets were investors are spared any losses.
What he admitted was, as he put it: “We understand, accept, and are fine with the fact that those asset purchases are also fostering a more accommodative stance of monetary policy,” in other words, that they inflate asset prices as well as “support macroeconomic outcomes.” “So it’s doing both,” he said, “and we’ve understood that for some time.”
He said that inequality is “a serious economic problem for the United States.” And I agree with him on that. Then he pointed his finger at some of the other guilty parties in that wealth and income inequality, including and specifically “globalization.” And I agree with him on that too.
He said that wealth inequality has, and I quote, “underlying causes that are not related to monetary policy and to our response to the pandemic.” That’s what he said. And with sort of a straight face too.
The federal government sent out stimulus checks to nearly everyone, and it sent out extra unemployment benefits of $600 a week, and for the first time ever, it provided unemployment insurance for gig workers. Hundreds of billions of dollars went to these people, and this money was highly welcome.
And then what did these people do with this money? Of course, they spent it. That was the purpose. And they spent it at Amazon, and they spent it at Walmart, and they bought computer equipment with it to get online from home, and they spent it on groceries. And they paid rent and made mortgage payments. And this money was recycled and ended up in the pockets of the rich, from Bezos to landlords.
Take the purchases at grocery stores. They boomed during the pandemic. Last week, Albertsons Companies, which owns Albertsons, Safeway, and a number of other supermarket chains, reported a 53% increase in revenues in the quarter ended June 30.
In prior updates, the company had pointed at the surge in grocery sales. And the enthusiasm in the stock market, driven by the Fed’s $3 trillion in asset purchases, and the surge in sales, allowed the company to pull off its IPO in June, after having had to scuttle it several times in prior years.
The big beneficiaries of this IPO were the wealthy – namely folks at the consortium of private equity firms, led by Cerberus Capital Management, that own the company, and the investors in those funds. The company now has a market value of $7 billion. The pandemic was one of the best things that ever happened to Cerberus and the members of its consortium.
And the stimulus and unemployment money spent at these stores, and at Walmart, and at Amazon, and elsewhere, just drove up the wealth of the wealthiest, after if left the hands of the little people.
In addition, there is the effect that people with high incomes were mostly able to hang on to their jobs, and were working from home, while many people in the lower-paid service jobs lost their work.
The poor lost their work and got poorer, the rich got richer and the high-income earners kept their jobs, and their wealth was bailed out by the Fed.
Inequality is a huge problem for an economy. The wealthy are already spending all the money they spend. The 600-plus American billionaires would have continued to spend roughly the same even if markets were allowed to go their way without the $3-trillion bailout from the Fed.
If the Fed had allowed asset prices to find their natural bottom, wherever that may have been, and they were already on their way in March, and say, across the board, these American billionaires would have lost half of their wealth, then wealth inequality would have been cut in half.
But what happened instead is this: the guy with a low-paying job, who lost the job, got the stimulus money and unemployment benefits, and then he handed this money over to the rich. This money didn’t stay with him. It flowed to the asset holders, to capital.
That’s how the money flows. And it helped produce the corporate results that helped drive up asset prices. Bezos was the biggest beneficiary of them all.
This inequality is a huge handicap for the economy going forward. An economy based on ballooning inequality cannot perform well. Inequality will get in the way of the recovery and has a negative impact on future economic growth.
This type of rampant wealth inequality, where the richest asset holders get bailed out the most, can and does contribute to social resentment over those systematic inequalities. But this social resentment rarely looks at the real causes of that inequality – a system that includes the Fed at its core.
The Fed is depicted as savior and hero. And most Americans know nearly nothing about the Fed, other than that it exists in some mysterious form.
This system has become socialism for the rich, socializing the losses to the rest of the people, and concentrating the gains – huge gains even during the pandemic – with a relatively small number of people. This is not the way to have a thriving economy. This is a way to run an economy into the ground.
What needs to happen is a return to an environment where the rich can lose the most because they have the most at stake – and when there is a pandemic or a financial panic that strikes the economy, the rich will lose the most. They’ll still have plenty left over afterwards. And it needs to be allowed to happen without bailouts and market support. Anything else is socialism for the rich, and it’s causing a lot of dysfunction in this economy.

THE PLAN TO SILENCE DOCTORS ONCE AND FOR ALL
First published on August 2nd, 2020. https://www.bitchute.com/video/9J6qQyvvpTFA/
Last week an organization of doctors called ‘Americas Frontline Doctors’ went to Washington DC and gave a press release in front of the Supreme Court.
What This group of doctors said, directly contradicted official positions of the World Health Organization and the Centers For Disease Control regarding the coronavirus and treatment of the infection as the new experimental vaccine could arrive before the end of the year.
Members of the doctors organization have been fired from their jobs, they have had their website removed and the viral video has been almost scrubbed from the internet.
It appears censoring doctors who speak out against the medical establishment may only be a temporary solution. Just today, right on time the World Economic Fund released a video called ‘When Your Doctor Is A Robot.’
Will doctors and nurses one day be replaced by artificial intelligence and robots? After all, robots don’t ask questions… They follow orders.

We Are Victims of the Greatest Crime in History
By Dr Vernon Coleman - 21. July 2020
Back in March, international best-selling author, Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA, was the first medical doctor to describe the coronavirus scare as a hoax. Here he analyses the coronavirus hoax from its beginning and shows how governments have lied and endangered millions of lives.
Dr Coleman proves that the response of governments has killed far more people than the coronavirus. For more unbiased information about other important issues, please visit http://www.vernoncoleman.com

Nobel Laureate Calls COVID-19 Manmade
By Dr. Mercola - 20. July 2020
The explanations of COVID-19’s origins by mainstream media simply do not add up and scientists are increasingly speaking out about this. Many experts theorize that the virus is manmade and was synthesized in a laboratory because the peculiarities of the virus’ genome that make it so transmittable could not have occurred in nature.
Experts who suspect COVID-19 has lab origins have strong evidence on their side. Research between the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to increase the infectivity and deadliness of a SARS-like coronavirus has indeed been conducted.1
The coronavirus experimental collaborations, called “gain-of-function” (GOF) research, were curtailed by the U.S. between 2014 and 2018 because of their obvious risks, but in 2017 the NIH announced the research would be resumed.2
Scientists willing to challenge the mainstream explanations of COVID-19’s origin face a backlash from their colleagues and scientific associations and have even been dismissed as “conspiracy theorists.” However, a new voice has been added to the body of scientific dissenters that will likely add to the credibility of their COVID-19 viewpoints.
French virologist Luc Antoine Montagnier, who was awarded a Nobel prize in Physiology in 2008 along with Françoise Barré-Sinoussi and Harald zur Hausen for discovering of the HIV virus,3 has now spoken out. Montagnier was a researcher at the prestigious Pasteur Institute in Paris.4
COVID-19 Was Manmade, Says Nobel Laureate
Many in the scientific community were shocked when the acclaimed Luc Antoine Montagnier appeared on the French cable TV show, CNews, on April 17, 20205 to say that the virus that causes COVID-19 is manmade and that elements of HIV and Plasmodium falciparum, a parasite that causes malaria, are found in the coronavirus’s genome.6 Montagnier said:7
“We were not the first since a group of Indian researchers tried to publish a study which showed that the complete genome of this coronavirus [has] sequences of another virus, which is HIV.”
The research that Montagnier refers to was posted on the science website Biorxiv January 31, 2020, and has since been withdrawn. The researchers wrote:8
“We found 4 insertions in the spike glycoprotein (S) which are unique to the 2019-nCoV and are not present in other coronaviruses. Importantly, amino acid residues in all the 4 inserts have identity or similarity to those in the HIV-1 gp120 or HIV-1 Gag …
The finding of 4 unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV, all of which have identity /similarity to amino acid residues in key structural proteins of HIV-1 is unlikely to be fortuitous in nature.”
COVID-19 Derives From a Failed HIV Vaccine, Says Montagnier
In a separate appearance on the French podcast Pourquoi Docteur, also April 17,9 Montagnier said the coronavirus had escaped in an “industrial accident” while Chinese scientists at the Wuhan city laboratory were trying to develop a vaccine against HIV.10 “In order to insert an HIV sequence into this genome, molecular tools are needed, and that can only be done in a laboratory,” said Montagnier.11
Montagnier also said he believes that the pandemic will naturally extinguish itself because of its synthetic origins:12
“Nature does not accept any molecular tinkering, it will eliminate these unnatural changes and even if nothing is done, things will get better, but unfortunately after many deaths.”
According to the website Corvelva, Montagnier said on the podcast that the pandemic would peter out because nature would override the synthetically inserted sequences that make COVID-19 so deadly:13
“With the help of interfering waves, we could eliminate these sequences … and consequently stop the pandemic. But it would take many means available.”
Montagnier Created His Theory With a Biomathematics Expert
Montagnier says he reached his conclusions, “With my colleague, biomathematician Jean-Claude Perez,” after they “carefully analyzed the description of the genome of this RNA virus.”14 Montagnier’s partner, Perez, is a French interdisciplinary scientist and biomathematics expert.15
According to an online bio, Perez has proved that DNA coding for genes is structured by proportions related to Fibonacci numbers,16 which are formulas in mathematics that are sometimes called “nature’s secret code.”17 In a paper Montagnier and Perez published on the Center for Open Science in April 2020, they write:18
“Using our proprietary bio-mathematic approach we are able to evaluate the level of cohesion and organization of a genome; … we then searched in this genome for possible traces of HIV or even SIV [related simian immunodeficiency virus]. A first publication reports the discovery of 6 HIV SIV RNA pieces.”
The HIV and SIV elements that Montagnier and Perez detect, called Exogenous Informative Elements, or EIEs, provide the basis of their theory that COVID-19 is not a simple derivative of SARS and bat-related viruses. They write:19
“A major part of these 16 EIE already existed in the first SARS genomes as early as 2003. However, we demonstrate how and why a new region including 4 HIV1 HIV2 Exogenous Informative Elements radically distinguishes all COVID-19 strains from all SARS and Bat strains …
… a contiguous region representing 2.49% of the whole COVID-19 genome is 40.99% made up of 12 diverse EIE originating from various strains of HIV SIV retroviruses …
a novel long region of around 225 nucleotides, appears to us to be totally new: this region is completely absent in ALL SARS genomes, whereas it is present and 100% homologous for all COVID-19 genomes listed in NCBI or GISAID COVID_19 genomic databases.”
More About Montagnier and Perez’s Theory
After in-depth sequencing of related genomes from many different countries, regions of countries and time periods using their proprietary biomathematic approach, Montagnier and Perez say their research enabled them to:20
“… demonstrate how and why a new region including 4 HIV/SIV EIE radically distinguishes all COVID- 19 strains from all SARS and Bat strains.”
They also find the presence of plasmodium yoelii in the COVID-19 genome, a parasite used in studies of “mice vaccine strategies.” This is another EIE not originally in the SARS and bat-related viruses, say Montagnier and Perez.21
“An analysis of amino acid homologies confirms the very probable insertion of this EIE [plasmodium yoelii] in COVID-19.”
As they decode the genomes of myriad COIVID-19 “relatives” in their research paper, Montagnier and Perez detect mutations in which the viruses seem to be trying to “rid” themselves of the exogenous EIEs, which the researchers believe were inserted deliberately.22
The virus mutations seem to verify Montagnier’s Pourquoi Docteur podcast predictions about how nature will eliminate “unnatural changes” — the reason he is hopeful the pandemic will come to a natural ending.23
Other Researchers Agree With Montagnier and Perez
Since Montagnier’s comments to French media, other researchers have agreed that COVID-19 appears manmade, with insertions that hint at lab construction. In June 2020, research published in the Quarterly Review of Biophysics makes similar claims.24 Norwegian scientist Birger Sørensen and British oncologist Angus Dalgleish refer to COVID-19 as a “chimeric virus” and write:25
“We show the non-receptor dependent phagocytic general method of action to be specifically related to cumulative charge from inserted sections placed on the SARS-CoV-2 Spike surface in positions to bind efficiently by salt bridge formations; and from blasting the Spike we display the non human-like epitopes from which Biovacc-19 has been down-selected.”
While conceding the Quarterly Review of Biophysics assertions were controversial, the scientific website Minerva wrote that the science should be pursued.26
“Minerva has read a draft of the article, and has after an overall assessment decided that the findings and arguments do deserve public debate, and that this discussion cannot depend entirely on the publication process of scientific journals.”
Like Montagnier, Sørensen’s background is HIV research work and he launched a new immunotherapy for HIV in 2008 that was acclaimed.27 In an interview with Minerva about his recent contentious research, he says:28
“We have examined which components of the virus are especially well suited to attach themselves to cells in humans. And we have done this by comparing the properties of the virus with human genetics. What we found was that this virus was exceptionally well adjusted to infect humans … So well that it was suspicious.”
The Sunday Times of London Weighs In
I previously interviewed virologist Jonathan Latham, and he expanded on his uncovering of this nondisclosed Wuhan virus. You can see more in the video below.

There are many unexplained circumstances surrounding the discovery and spread of COVID-19, which inspired The Times of London to launch an in-depth investigation that was recently published.29 For example, the newspaper notes that a virus similar to COVID-19 appeared on the scene much earlier than was reported.30
“The world’s closest known relative to the Covid-19 virus was found in 2013 by Chinese scientists in an abandoned mine where it was linked to deaths caused by a coronavirus-type respiratory illness.”
Among the many unanswered questions was why the deaths of six men in China in 2012, who had been exposed to a bat virus and quickly developed severe pneumonia, were covered up by Chinese authorities. According to The Times:31
“All the men were linked. They had been given the task of clearing out piles of bat feces in an abandoned copper mine in the hills south of the town of Tongguan … Some had worked for two weeks before falling ill, and others just a few days … while none had tested positive for SARS, all four had antibodies against another, unknown Sars-like coronavirus.”
A research paper titled “Coexistence of Multiple Coronaviruses in Several Bat Colonies in an Abandoned Mineshaft,” cowritten by Shi Zhengli, a researcher known in China as the “Bat Woman,” makes “no mention of why the study had been carried out: the miners, their pneumonia and the deaths,” says the Times.32
The deaths from the apparently new bat-related respiratory virus were also blacked out by Chinese media, says The Times, and could only be gleaned from a “master’s thesis by a young medic called Li Xu.”33
Adding to the many questions about the virus’ origins, wrote The Times, was the fact that “of the 41 patients who contracted Covid-19 in Wuhan only 27” had contact with the Huanan seafood market, which was officially named as the source. Moreover, a longtime bat researcher exposed to bat blood and urine who subsequently fell ill and might have been “patient zero” refused to talk to reporters.34
Thanks to the “gain-of-function” research that was conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, well-founded fears of escaped or leaked viruses preceded the acknowledgement of COVID-19 and were increased by China’s lack of transparency. For example, wrote The Times, even the fact that COVID-19 could be spread between humans was hidden:35
“China would not admit there had been human-to-human transmission until January 20, despite sitting on evidence the virus had been passed to medics.”
The True Nature of COVID-19 Remains Hidden
According to The Times, a sample of the virus that killed six in 2012 was housed at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and was described in a scientific paper cowritten by Shi that states it is a 96.2% match to the COVID-19 virus.36 The virus, called RaTG13, says The Times:
“… was the biggest lead available as to the origin of Covid-19. It was therefore surprising that the paper gave only scant detail about the history of the virus sample, stating merely that it was taken from a Rhinolophus affinis bat in Yunnan province in 2013 — hence the “Ra” and the 13.
Inquiries have established, however, that RaTG13 is almost certainly the coronavirus discovered in the abandoned mine in 2013, which had been named RaBtCoV/4991 in the institute’s earlier scientific paper. For some reason, Shi and her team appear to have renamed it.”
According to The Times, the obfuscation about how long the virus has been known to exist and its origins continues. In an interview with Scientific American, says The Times, Shi:37
“… mentions the discovery of a coronavirus that 96% matches the Covid-19 virus, and has a reference to the miners dying in a cave she investigated. However, the two things are not linked and Shi downplays the significance of the miners’ deaths by claiming they succumbed to a fungus.”
Was COVID-19 Created in a Lab?
With the many cover-ups and misleading information surrounding the coronavirus and resulting pandemic, is it possible COVID-19 came from a lab and was manmade? On this point, The Times is agnostic.38
“The final and trickiest question for the WHO inspectors [who investigated the virus in China] is whether the virus might have escaped from a laboratory in Wuhan. Is it possible, for example, that RaTG13 or a similar virus turned into Covid-19 and then leaked into the population after infecting one of the scientists at the Wuhan institute?
This seriously divides the experts. The Australian virologist Edward Holmes has estimated that RaTG13 would take up to 50 years to evolve the extra 4% that would make it a 100% match with the Covid-19 virus.”
Most of the mainstream media as well as the scientific community continue to dismiss such ideas. But the addition of the voices of a Nobel Laureate and well-known Norwegian researcher give the theory greater credibility. There are other questions unexplored by media, too.
Was COVID-19 Intended as a Bioweapon?
If COVID-19 were manmade and leaked from a laboratory, there is another pressing question. Was the synthesized virus intended as a bioweapon? In a published paper, Dr. Meryl Nass, a board-certified internist and biological warfare epidemiologist,39 wrote that such genetic engineering techniques have “resulted in biological weapons that were tested, well-described and, in some cases, used.”40
Many are unaware of just how many Biological Safety Levels (BSL) 3 and 4 labs there are in the world. They are found in the U.S., China, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, The Czech Republic, France, Gabon, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.41 People are also unaware of how often leaks occur.
For example, in 2017 at the BSL 4 lab on Galveston Island, there were serious questions about what happened to pathogens housed there after it was hit by a massive storm and severe flooding.42 Only two years later, the BSL 4 lab in Fort Detrick, Maryland, was temporarily shut down after protocol violations.43
When Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005, the greater New Orleans area housed at least five BSL 3 labs that were studying anthrax, HIV, SARS, West Nile and genetically engineered mouse pox. According to The Daily Bruin:44
“The National Primate Research Center, located at Tulane, housed nearly 5,000 monkeys in outdoor cages for ‘infectious disease, including biodefense-related work, gene therapy, reproductive biology and neuroscience,’ according to an article in Tulane University Magazine.”
The CDC Has Had Several BSL Safety Breaches and Accidents
Even the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has had leaks in its home-based Atlanta facility. In June 2012, the agency made headline news when an inspector reported that a building housing anthrax, SARS and monkeypox in one of its bioterror labs had a noticeable air leak. This was following similar reports in 2007 and 2008. Of the 2012 incident, ABC News said:45
“The documents suggest a breach in biosafety regulations, imposed nationwide by the CDC itself, that dictate labs housing the most dangerous inhalable infectious agents must be maintained under ‘negative pressure.'”
The CDC just seems to keep having accidents. For example, in June 2014, the CDC released a public statement46 stating “… approximately 75 Atlanta-based staff are being monitored after being exposed to live anthrax when … established safety practices were not followed.”
The CDC then pledged to do internal reviews of lab-safety policies and procedures. Six months later, in December 2014, Reuters47 reported that the CDC had created a new, high-level safety position to “identify problems, establish plans to solve them, and hold programs throughout CDC accountable for follow-up.”
But, in 2016, it happened again: Problems in an Atlanta BSL-4 lab working “with deadly Ebola and smallpox viruses and other pathogens that lack vaccines or reliable treatments” developed when safety seals and backup safety measures on its labs failed.48
In reporting on this incident, USA Today obtained copies of reports from a 2009 incident, and learned that certain CDC officials tried to hide the problems. USA Today asked Richard Ebright, a Rutgers University biosafety expert who has testified before Congress on these issues, to look at the reports and to give his opinion on the CDC’s actions. Ebright said:
“Overall, the incident shows that failures — even cascading, compounding, catastrophic failures of BSL-4 biocontainment labs occur … And the attempted cover-up within the CDC makes it clear that the CDC cannot be relied upon to police its own, much less other institutions.”
The CDC responded that “there was never any risk posed by the lab’s equipment failures.” What other accidents have we yet to hear about? If we are ever going to get a handle on this, we must listen to the experts on this topic, many whom I have interviewed. Although there may have been some valid research taking place at one time, most of these bioweapon labs are dangerous and should be shut down.
YALE STUDY ON HOW TO GET PEOPLE TO ACCEPT A COVID VACCINE BUSTED!!!
Latest study update: 18. July 2020
They set up 15 different control groups that were to be pressured by the following messages, to see which ones were most effective at getting people to accept the vax. THESE WILL BE THE FUTURE HEADLINES AND MANIPULATIONS, BET ON IT!!!
pressure: "message about how COVID-19 is limiting people's personal freedom and by working together to get enough people vaccinated society can preserve its personal freedom."
pressure: "message about how COVID-19 is limiting peoples's economic freedom and by working together to get enough people vaccinated society can preserve its economic freedom."
pressure: "message that COVID-19 presents a real danger to one's health, even if one is young and healthy. Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is the best way to prevent oneself from getting sick."
pressure: "message about the dangers of COVID-19 to the health of loved ones. The more people who get vaccinated against COVID-19, the lower the risk that one's loved ones will get sick. Society must work together and all get vaccinated."
pressure: "message about how COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on the economy and the only way to strengthen the economy is to work together to get enough people vaccinated."
pressure: "message is about the danger that COVID-19 presents to the health of one's family and community. The best way to protect them is by getting vaccinated and society must work together to get enough people vaccinated. Then it asks the participant to imagine the guilt they will feel if they don't get vaccinated and spread the disease."
pressure: "message is about the danger that COVID-19 presents to the health of one's family and community. The best way to protect them is by getting vaccinated and by working together to make sure that enough people get vaccinated. Then it asks the participant to imagine the embarrassment they will feel if they don't get vaccinated and spread the disease."
pressure: "message is about the danger that COVID-19 presents to the health of one's family and community. The best way to protect them is by getting vaccinated and by working together to make sure that enough people get vaccinated. Then it asks the participant to imagine the anger they will feel if they don't get vaccinated and spread the disease."
HERE IS MY FAVORITE: THE SCIENCE RIP. If you are against vaccines, you are too stupid to understand science. PROBLEM: Those who know the vaccines are destroying people are better at science than any other group. But you know, it's called displacement. HERE IT IS:
pressure: "message about how getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is the most effective way of protecting one's community. Vaccination is backed by science. If one doesn't get vaccinated that means that one doesn't understand how infections are spread or who ignores science."
I swear, if anyone in the open public, (where I can get ahold of them physically) comes at me with that science bullshit, they will eat a chair.
pressure: "message which describes how firefighters, doctors, and front line medical workers are brave. Those who choose not to get vaccinated against COVID-19 are not brave."
That's another doozie, why on earth would you need to be "brave" to take a vax unless they know damn well it will destroy people? Who are they trying to fool?

WHY IS UK HEALTH STAFF SILENCED?
NHS Consultant Says Staff Are Being Silenced Over COVID-19
Here lies an anonymous statement from an A&E consultant in a major hospital in Surrey, in relation to the criminal gagging of all levels of NHS staff, who have been threatened that they will lose their jobs if the speak out about the COVID-1984 scamdemic.
“I am a consultant at a major , regional hospital in Surrey. By major you can take that to indicate that we have an A&E department. I had agreed to give an interview to an anti lockdown activist in which I would have revealed my identity. I have since changed my mind and only feel able to give an anonymous statement. I have changed my mind simply because that all staff , no matter what grade, at all hospitals have been warned that if they give any media interviews at all or make any statements to either the Main Stream Press or smaller, independent press /social media we may, immediately be suspended without pay. I have a family, dependents and I simply cant do it to them. I therefore can not reveal my identity at this time but wish to state as follows:
In my opinion, and that of many of my colleagues, there has been no Covid Pandemic, certainly not in the Surrey region and I have heard from other colleagues this picture is the same throughout the country. Our hospital would normally expect to see around 350,000 out patients a year. Around 95,000 patients are admitted to hospital in a normal year and we would expect to see around a similar figure, perhaps 100,000 patients pass through our A&E department. In the months from March to June (inclusive) we would normally expect to see 100,000 out patients, around 30,000 patients admitted to hospital and perhaps 30,000 pass through A&E. This year (and these figures are almost impossible to get hold of) we are over 95% down on all those numbers. In effect, the hospital has been pretty much empty for that entire period.
At the start, staff that questioned this were told that we were being used as ‘redundant’ capacity, kept back for the ‘deluge’ we were told would come. It never did come, and when staff began to question this, comments like, ‘for the greater good’ and to ‘protect the NHS’ came down from above. Now its just along the lines of, ‘Shut up or you don’t get paid’. The few Covid cases that we have had , get repeatedly tested, and every single test counted as a new case. Meaning the figures reported back to ONS / PHE (Office for National Statistics & Public Health England) were almost exponentially inflated. It could be that Covid cases reported by hospitals are between 5 to 10x higher than the real number of cases. There has been no pandemic and this goes a long way to explain why figures for the UK are so much higher than anywhere else in Europe.
The trust has been running empty ambulances during lockdown and is still doing it now. By this I mean ambulances are driving around, with their emergency alert systems active (sirens & / or lights) with no job to go to. This I believe has been to give the impression to the public that there is more demand for ambulances than there actually is. Staff only wear face coverings/ masks & social distance when public facing, as soon as they are out of public view, the masks come off and social distancing is not observed. Indeed jokes are made about the measures, and I have heard staff express amazement that despite warnings on packets and at point of sales, telling people masks are totally ineffective and dangerous , the public still buy them, because a politician has told them too.
We have cancelled the vast majority of operations and of these ALL elective surgery has been cancelled. That’s surgery that has been pre planned / waiting list. Non elective Surgery, this tends to be emergency surgery or that which is deemed urgent has been severely curtailed. The outcome of this is simple. People are at best being denied basic medical care and at worst, being left to die, in some cases, in much distress and pain.
Regarding death certification. All staff that are responsible for this have been encouraged where possible to put Covid-19 complications as reason for death, even though the patient may have been asymptomatic and also not even tested for covid. I feel this simply amounts to fraudulently completed death certificates and has been responsible to grossly inflating the number of Covid deaths. The fact is that regardless of what you actually die of in hospital, it is likely that Covid-19 will feature on your death certificate. I have included with my statement the detailed published guidance from Government on Death Certification which shows how Covid-19, as a factor is encouraged to at least feature on a death certificate.
Remember Covid-19 itself can not kill. What kills is complications from the virus, typically pneumonia like symptoms. These complications are in reality incredibly rare but have featured and a large amount of death certificates issued in recent months. As long as Covid-19 appears on a death certificate, that death is counted as Covid-19 in the figures released by the ONS and PHE. I genuinely believe that many death certificates, especially amongst the older 65+ demographic have been fraudulently completed so as to be counted as Covid-19 deaths when in reality Covid-19 complications did not cause the death.
There have been Thursday nights when I stood, alone in my office and cried as I heard people cheering and clapping outside. It sickens me to see all the ‘Thank You NHS’ signs up everywhere and the stolen rainbow that for me now says one word and word only; fear.
There are many good people in the NHS and whilst I do not plead forgiveness for myself, I do plead for them. Most are on low pay, they joined for the right reasons and I did and have been bullied and threatened that if they don’t ‘stay on message’ they don’t eat. I know that if a way could be found to assure staff within the NHS of safety against reprisals, there would be a tsunami of whistleblowers which I have no doubt would help end this complete and brutal insanity. I am finding it increasingly hard to live with what I have been involved in and I am sorry this has happened. To end, I would simply say this. Politicians haven’t changed, the country has just made a fatal mistake and started trusting them without question.”
International Pharmaceuticals Expert Exposes Pandemic Fakery!
By John O'Sullivan - 09. July 2020
In a scathing assessment of governmental responses to the COVID-19 pandemic a respected former pharmaceutical assessor for Health Canada condemns systemic “lies” about antibody testing which, he says, “lacks scientific validity.”
Saeed Qureshi, Ph.D. is a top pharmaceuticals expert with over 30 years in the industry. He conducted hands-on and multi-disciplinary laboratory research for regulatory assessment purposes while working with Health Canada.
Heaping particular criticism on the FDA approved under Emergency Use Authorization or EUA, Dr Qureshi condemns the testing kits widely used as ineffective and “such tests should be avoided in making predictions or projections about the infection and its spread. It certainly is a false science.”
We cite sections of Dr Qureshi’s findings below:
“Considering the statements below, from a randomly selected fact sheet FDA approved under Emergency Use Authorization or EUA, the current antibody testing lacks scientific validity. This is really sad that such tests [kits] are being promoted or used to establish COVID-19 . As noted below the test monitors protein levels commonly known as [IgM, IgA and IgG] not specifically COVID-19. Logically data obtained from such tests should be avoided in making predictions or projections about the infection and its spread. It certainly is a false science.
- “A positive result with VITROS Immunodiagnostic Products Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Total Reagent Pack test may not mean that an individual’s current symptoms are due to COVID-19 infection.”
2. “However, a negative result does not rule out COVID-19.”
3. “The absolute sensitivity of the VITROS Immunodiagnostic Products Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Total Reagent Pack test is unknown.”
4. FDA statement  “This limits the test’s effectiveness for diagnosing COVID-19 and why it should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose COVID-19.”
In addition, if vaccines would be developed based on such antibody tests, which does not appear to be sufficiently validated as noted above, then how reliable and valid vaccines would be? Please be cautious with claims in this regard.
Do FDA and USP lie? Of course, all the time!
FDA claims that it establishes and monitors quality of pharmaceutical products such as tablet and capsule. A lie – FDA neither defines quality of the products nor its measurable parameter hence it does not, or cannot, determine quality of the products.
FDA claims that it establishes safety and efficacy (as well as quality) of pharmaceutical products using valid clinical testing (e.g. bioequivalence assessment) and in vitro (drug dissolution) testing using USP apparatuses. A lie – these tests, along with associated testers, have never been validated for the intended purpose. In fact, these tests have been shown to be scientifically invalid and irrelevant for their intended purpose.
USP claims that it provides reference standards for establishing quality of the pharmaceutical products such as tablets and capsules. A lie – USP never provides reference standards for any product. It provides powder or liquid samples of pure chemical compounds, not the products which patients use, however falsely promotes as reference standards of medicines.
USP claims that it provides a valid analytical test for the assessment drug release characteristics of the products for establishing and monitoring quality of the products. A lie – the test has never been validated for the intended purpose. The test cannot determine drug dissolution/release characteristics of any product. It has been shown experimentally that the test provides irrelevant and highly unpredictable results/data with no relevance to product quality.
For more examples please visit here. Manufacturers and patients should be cautious in accepting such claims from FDA and USP as well as other national and international authorities which often follow FDA/USP claims and guidances.
Please consider accepting the Citizen Petition (under review with FDA for more than a year and a half, link) for addressing the underlying lies concerning products development, manufacturing and their regulatory approval.
Can we say?
- Flu came and gone!
- Why it was called a pandemic – not clear
- Discredited the bench top science – as disease state monitored with charts and their shapes (humpy or dumpy) with protocol/testing developed on the fly
- Discredited the medicines approval system with the approval of medicines without requiring established protocols
- Treatments could be suggested and implemented without having knowledge or expertise in the area of medicine.
- Exposed the great weakness, perhaps more accurately ignorance, of “science” at the authorities!
- Hope we learnt something not to repeat in future
(1) Coronavirus pandemic: Public/patients deserve better!
The unfortunate situation created by this Coronavirus pandemic is providing a serious opportunity for reassessing the current regulatory approaches in pharmaceutical products development as well as their manufacturing so that in future such irrelevant discussion can be avoided and patients can have access to modern and multiple options to treat ailments. Hopefully in the future patients will be treated with well-established products rather than products developed on the fly or with the use of disposable gowns, masks, washing hands and/or staying home policy which certainly are not the treatments – patients expect and deserve something better from us as scientists, physicians and regulators. Follow the link for complete article (link)
(2) Authorities (including FDA) and pharmacopeias (including USP) never establish quality of products!
(1) They do not define quality of the products, hence it cannot be measured and/or established (link).
(2) Suggested methods and procedures lack scientifically relevancy and validity (link)
(3) GMP practices, including inspections, are about operation of manufacturing not per se reflection of products quality (link).
(3) Is Coronavirus really causing abnormally higher number of deaths?
Mortality in the United States, 2018 (as of January 2020, link).
“The age-adjusted death rate decreased by 1.1% from 731.9 deaths per 100,000 standard population in 2017 to 723.6 in 2018.” i.e. death rate is about 0.7236%
For the USA, having population of 331 million (link), normal/standard death (attrition) rate should be 199,593 deaths/month. Now compare this number with the reported number of deaths caused by Coronavirus pandemic, which are 21,435 in about a month’s time as of April 12, 2020 (link) which is far less than normal/standard death (attrition) rate.
The death rate, therefore, does not appear to support the thesis that the pandemic is killing people with abnormally high numbers.

Manufactured Pandemic: Testing People for Any Strain of a Coronavirus, Not Specifically for COVID-19
By Julian Rose - 27. March 2020
The following is from a medical forum. The writer, who is a widely respected professional scientist in the US, prefers to stay anonymous, because presenting any narrative different than the official one can cause you a lot of stress in the toxic environment caused by the scam which surrounds COVID-19 these days. – Julian Rose
I work in the healthcare field. Here’s the problem, we are testing people for any strain of a Coronavirus. Not specifically for COVID-19. There are no reliable tests for a specific COVID-19 virus. There are no reliable agencies or media outlets for reporting numbers of actual COVID-19 virus cases. This needs to be addressed first and foremost. Every action and reaction to COVID-19 is based on totally flawed data and we simply can not make accurate assessments.
This is why you’re hearing that most people with COVID-19 are showing nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. That’s because most Coronavirus strains are nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. The few actual novel Coronavirus cases do have some worse respiratory responses, but still have a very promising recovery rate, especially for those without prior issues.
The ‘gold standard’ in testing for COVID-19 is laboratory isolated/purified coronavirus particles free from any contaminants and particles that look like viruses but are not, that have been proven to be the cause of the syndrome known as COVID-19 and obtained by using proper viral isolation methods and controls (not the PCR that is currently being used or Serology /antibody tests which do not detect virus as such). PCR basically takes a sample of your cells and amplifies any DNA to look for ‘viral sequences’, i.e. bits of non-human DNA that seem to match parts of a known viral genome.
The problem is the test is known not to work.
It uses ‘amplification’ which means taking a very very tiny amount of DNA and growing it exponentially until it can be analyzed. Obviously any minute contaminations in the sample will also be amplified leading to potentially gross errors of discovery.
Additionally, it’s only looking for partial viral sequences, not whole genomes, so identifying a single pathogen is next to impossible even if you ignore the other issues.
The Mickey Mouse test kits being sent out to hospitals, at best, tell analysts you have some viral DNA in your cells. Which most of us do, most of the time. It may tell you the viral sequence is related to a specific type of virus – say the huge family of coronavirus. But that’s all. The idea these kits can isolate a specific virus like COVID-19 is nonsense.
And that’s not even getting into the other issue – viral load.
If you remember the PCR works by amplifying minute amounts of DNA. It therefore is useless at telling you how much virus you may have. And that’s the only question that really matters when it comes to diagnosing illness. Everyone will have a few virus kicking round in their system at any time, and most will not cause illness because their quantities are too small. For a virus to sicken you you need a lot of it, a massive amount of it. But PCR does not test viral load and therefore can’t determine if it is present in sufficient quantities to sicken you.
If you feel sick and get a PCR test any random virus DNA might be identified even if they aren’t at all involved in your sickness which leads to false diagnosis.
And coronavirus are incredibly common. A large percentage of the world human population will have covi DNA in them in small quantities even if they are perfectly well or sick with some other pathogen.
Do you see where this is going yet? If you want to create a totally false panic about a totally false pandemic – pick a coronavirus.
They are incredibly common and there’s tons of them. A very high percentage of people who have become sick by other means (flu, bacterial pneumonia, anything) will have a positive
PCR test for covi even if you’re doing them properly and ruling out contamination, simply because covis are so common.
There are hundreds of thousands of flu and pneumonia victims in hospitals throughout the world at any one time.
All you need to do is select the sickest of these in a single location – say Wuhan – administer PCR tests to them and claim anyone showing viral sequences similar to a coronavirus (which will inevitably be quite a few) is suffering from a ‘new’ disease.
Since you already selected the sickest flu cases a fairly high proportion of your sample will go on to die.
You can then say this ‘new’ virus has a CFR higher than the flu and use this to infuse more concern and do more tests which will of course produce more ‘cases’, which expands the testing, which produces yet more ‘cases’ and so on and so on.
Before long you have your ‘pandemic’, and all you have done is use a simple test kit trick to convert the worst flu and pneumonia cases into something new that doesn’t actually exist.
Now just run the same scam in other countries. Making sure to keep the fear message running high so that people will feel panicky and less able to think critically.
Your only problem is going to be that – due to the fact there is no actual new deadly pathogen but just regular sick people, you are mislabeling your case numbers, and especially your deaths, are going to be way too low for a real new deadly virus pandemic.
But you can stop people pointing this out in several ways.
1. You can claim this is just the beginning and more deaths are imminent. Use this as an excuse to quarantine everyone and then claim the quarantine prevented the expected millions of dead.
2. You can tell people that ‘minimizing’ the dangers is irresponsible and bully them into not talking about numbers.
3. You can talk crap about made up numbers hoping to blind people with pseudoscience.
4. You can start testing well people (who, of course, will also likely have shreds of coronavirus DNA in them) and thus inflate your ‘case figures’ with ‘asymptomatic carriers’ (you will of course have to spin that to sound deadly even though any virologist knows the more symptom-less cases you have the less deadly is your pathogen.
Take these 4 simple steps and you can have your own entirely manufactured pandemic up and running in weeks.
They can not “confirm” something for which there is no accurate test.

THE LESSON OF COVID-19
By KURT NIMMO - 20. March 2020
The COVID-19 “pandemic” is primarily designed to empower the ruling elite and further its authoritarian reach. The primary tool is the innate human fear of death and this fear has been greatly magnified by the corporate propaganda media.
For those able to sidestep the trap of fear-mongering, it is obvious this disease is less of a threat to mortality than the seasonal flu and tuberculosis. COVID-19’s death rate thus far is minuscule by way of comparison, although the state and its media promise the number will rise precipitously and the only option is to “flatten the curve” by imposing authoritarian mandates, including the imposition of martial law, as is now the case in Italy.
The state has a monopoly on coercion and violence. It has demonstrated repeatedly throughout history that its first reflex during any crisis, real or invented, is to demand the obedience of the masses or they will suffer the consequences—arrest, fines, incarceration, possibly even death. We are witnessing this now in California, the liberal haven now on lockdown, soon to be transformed into martial law as many people refuse to believe COVID-19 is the boogieman the state claims. For the state, it is impermissible to go about our lives as normal. The same is now unfolding on the opposite coast in New York, another bastion of the liberal mindset.
In addition to furthering authoritarian rule, the state and its owners, banksters and transnational corporations are determined to take down an already sick economy, made so by decades of post-Keynesian economics and the neoliberal creed. In this way, they can reconfigure economies and finally establish a globalist plan for centralized world government, long sought after and admitted to the public at large (search “global governance”). This fascistic, top-down plan is sold as an effort to realize peace, security, justice, and global mediation systems. It is nothing of the sort.
Recall Henry Kissinger’s remarks following the LA riots. This war criminal and Rockefeller operative said under the circumstances of an appropriate crisis, the people will run to the state and beg to be protected. Increasingly, the people, like helpless children, expect and demand the state to not only protect them but also gift them with all manner of free goodies at the expense of others.
Comedian and actor Chris Rock, during the reign of Barack Obama, said the president is akin to a father demanding obedience from his children. This is how millions of people look at the government—as a beneficent daddy who will take care of all their needs and protect them during crises, either real or invented.
The COVID-19 “pandemic” will undoubtedly destroy an already debilitated economy and clear the way for a centralized, fascist, and authoritarian world government and an economic reconfiguration that will further enrich the ruling elite.
The philosophy of the neocon guru, Leo Strauss, is certainly applicable. Strauss believed the world needs an enlightened class of rulers modeled after Plato’s Republic. Shadia Drury, professor of political theory at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan, wrote during the reign of the Bush neocons:
The ancient philosophers whom Strauss most cherished believed that the unwashed masses were not fit for either truth or liberty, and that giving them these sublime treasures would be like throwing pearls before swine. In contrast to modern political thinkers, the ancients denied that there is any natural right to liberty. Human beings are born neither free nor equal. The natural human condition, they held, is not one of freedom, but of subordination and in Strausss estimation they were right in thinking so.
This is the endgame of the COVID-19 “crisis”—subordination to the state and following authoritarian diktats handed down without question, complaint, or resistance.
Capitalism is one virus away from existential disaster, and only its victims' money can save it
By George Galloway - 18. March 2020

Franklin D. Roosevelt and John Maynard Keynes have been knocked into a cocked hat by Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, and Emmanuel Macron, the new holy trinity of dirigiste capitalism.
According to the laws of capitalist economics, an airline which cannot fill its seats must go to the wall. If the public's taste for ocean-going cruises dissipates either by fashion or pandemic, the cruise company goes under the relentless waves, sink or swim.
John Maynard Keynes and Franklin D. Roosevelt bucked that in the 1930s Great Depression, deciding that the fate of nations could not be left merely to the unseen hand of market forces, but that if not a heart then at least a brain must be applied. That accountancy was not economics.
The descendants of Keynes and FDR would not normally be found in either the British Conservative Party or the GOP. Reagan and Thatcher must be turning in their graves. Because this week the prevailing capitalist orthodoxy was turned on its head and eye-watering sums of public money were splashed not by Sanders or Corbyn or Melenchon, but by their polar opposites whose whole careers have been built on denouncing the slightest bit of Keynesianism as socialism or even communism.
Unless one believes all three have experienced a Damascene conversion, one can safely say the scale of the bail-out equals the scale of the threat perceived to capitalism itself by the coronavirus epidemic. Donald Trump is getting ready to sign $1,000 checks to “every American.” Macron, under siege and thinking of the Bastille every morning he wakes up, is going to spend the equivalent of 20 percent of France's 2019 GDP to beat this new unseen, elusive enemy.
When the pigs in Animal Farm metamorphosed into the opposite of their former selves, they began to chant “four legs good, two legs better.” For the Holy Trinity, equality was always good, but some would be more equal than others. “Public good, private better” was their mantra.
But the scale of the public health threat posed by the pandemic demonstrates beyond contradiction that private is not better than public, an economy which principally is private cannot meet the needs of the human race when existential dangers arrive.
This is not new, though it may have been forgotten.
The war-time alliance of the USSR, Britain, and America could not have prevailed if the example of Milo Minderbinder in Catch-22 had been followed. Milo, a capitalist to his core, rented out his own USAF bombers to the enemy to bomb his own side. Well, business is business.
Only strong centralised states with command economies can wage total war, and profiteering, hoarding and panic bulk buying are rightly considered crimes. The USSR already had one; Britain and America had to become so for the duration. Under capitalism, if people cannot go to work and earn money, or eat out, entertain themselves or shop, all the private enterprises dependent on these things must fail. That's accountancy. Economics, however, requires shock-absorbers so that economic capacity, which will be harder to bring back than to protect, is not lost forever. And politics is the art of ensuring that a crash is never so apocalyptic as to raise the possibility that the people will not rise up, especially not during the Ides of March...
Boris Johnson, who just four months ago characterised the economic policies of his Labour opponent as reckless soviet-style communism, announced EXTRA public spending greater than the entire 2019 GDP of Portugal. A £350 billion package which he and his Chancellor repeatedly said was merely the beginning. We will do “whatever it takes,” they said, seven times between them. Interest-free loans, loans at attractive rates, mortgage holidays, the protection of uninsured businesses unwise enough not to have sought indemnity for pandemics, the scrapping of business rates for pubs, restaurants, retail and service industry businesses. Implied is subsidy for private airlines, privately owned airports; under-review is the potential plight of tenants, hourly wage-workers, those in the gig economy. The heartless Tories even found millions for the destitute so they could be taken off the streets, and given a space in which they might “self-isolate.”
Of course, within this bout of socialism, there are many footprints – much bigger than a pig's – of some being more equal than others – Sir Richard Branson for example will fare much better than the Rickshaw driver in Piccadilly Circus. But it nevertheless shows that in the third decade of the 21st century, after 250 years of hegemony, capitalism has left us two pay-cheques away from penury and one virus away from existential disaster. And only the money of its victims can save it.
"We’re waking up the consequences of an exploitative, abusive, predatory way of life, model of economics, form of society, mode of culture. Of a world still built atop patriarchy, supremacy, and capitalism — all badly corrosive, self-destructive, obsolete ideologies, practices, ways."
Difficult times will extend for the next few weeks and will bring out the best and worst in people. Crisis or not, let's try to show our best. Life goes on, so expect the usual posts and maybe more humor. Let's make our quarantines bearable. We'll get through.

Did China Panic the World and Steal Our Wealth with a Common Cold?
By Anthony J. Ciani - 16. March 2020
If COVID-19 (scientifically known as SARS-CoV-2) had started in Singapore or Taiwan, it would have traveled the world, infected billions of people, killed millions, and there wouldn't have been a single peep about it. "But it kills people," you cry. That is what cold and flu do, especially to the elderly and those lacking basic medicines. The world is panicking over a virus that causes mild colds in the vast majority of cases. Amid the panic, China is profiting as it buys up stocks at bargain-basement prices. Instead of engineering a pandemic, did China engineer pandemonium?
Before pandemonium, science. Sudden Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) is characterized by the sudden (within a day or two) development of severe viral pneumonia with a thick mucus that is difficult to treat. SARS is strongly associated with two strains of coronavirus (SARS-CoV and now SARS-CoV-2). The pathogenesis of SARS is supposed to go something like this: Day 1: infection with SARS-CoV or SARS-CoV-2. Day 2: coughing and wheezing for breath. Day 3: hospitalization on a ventilator. Day 4: death. Over 99% of COVID-19 cases have experienced nothing even remotely similar to SARS. Is SARS-CoV-2 a bunch of hooey?
Medicine has a penchant for gaining fame by discovering new diseases by reclassifying old diseases. When infected with a cold-causing virus, you might get a fever, might have a runny nose, might cough, might have muscle aches, might have a sore throat, and you might get viral pneumonia. "SARS" is a name for a severe case of viral pneumonia caused by two specific cold viruses, but any cold virus could lead to a SARS-like viral pneumonia. Don't scoff at colds.
There are over 200 viruses that cause the common cold. Among those are several strains of coronavirus, with a new strain discovered every few years. Discovery occurs when a lab technician sequences a virus (a rather rare event) and submits to GenBank a previously unpublished sequence. The newly discovered virus could have been endemic for millennia. Science makes mistakes, and a lot of scientists can make a lot of mistakes, especially when rushing. Assuming that the multitude of partial genetic sequences for COVID-19 are genetic sequences for COVID-19, and assuming that the multitude of rapidly developed (and poorly validated) tests for COVID-19 are specific for COVID-19, then COVID-19 rarely leads to SARS. COVID-19 is a newly identified strain of coronavirus that causes the common cold, and although newly discovered, it could have been endemic for centuries.
We fill nursing homes with elderly on their last legs, where they are tended to by orderlies, until one of those orderlies comes to work with a little bit of a runny nose. "Would you like us to make them comfortable?" is a code phrase for "Would you like us to continue fluffing their pillows while they choke to death from pneumonia and their minds melt from fever?" Medicine is withheld as they die a natural death from pneumonia indistinguishable from SARS. Even the young and healthy can die from a cold. Absent medicines, such as aspirin, decongestants, and expectorants, death from fever, secondary infections, diarrhea, and viral pneumonia is a real possibility. The common cold would be 100 times more deadly without medicine, just as in the past.
This brings us to China, where an advanced socialized medical system is much like the nursing home: no medicine at all. People reported to hospitals because their common colds were a little more severe than usual. Perhaps their fevers were unresponsive to the medicines they obtained at the local drugstore, which may not have contained any medicine (1,2,3,4,5). With so much manufactured in China, you might have paid $300 for a bottle of cornstarch pressed into pills; [insert big-name pharma company here] thanks you. At the hospital, many patients in Wuhan were carefully evaluated for their worth to society and then led to benches in the halls upon which they could sit while their fevers and coughs got worse and they were otherwise ignored.
Meanwhile, the Chinese are profiting immensely from the fire sale, as though they were prepared for it (6,7,8,9,10). Also consider that China owns large portions of our media companies, and China virtually controls the World Health Organization (WHO). When this thing started, Trump offered aid to China in the form of virology experts and medicines, but China refused that aid, insisting that everything be done through the WHO. The WHO assisted in the hype by calling something that looked like a common cold, once it got out of China, a "pandemic."
Were the people of Wuhan suffering from a new SARS, the ravages of a common cold exacerbated by socialist medicine, or nothing at all? COVID-19 rarely causes SARS outside China, so it must be the last one.
Did the Chinese government attempt to cover up the embarrassment of its socialized medicine or fabricate a deadly outbreak to panic the world? Has our scientific arrogance erroneously blamed this on an innocuous common cold, possibly endemic in much of the world, or have we been maliciously misled by the Chinese-controlled WHO? Was it to cover the embarrassment or advance the fabrication? Did China orchestrate the media hype, or was it the normal Trump-hate of fake news? Did the Chinese start a fire sale, or were they well positioned by happenstance?
Never attribute to maliciousness that which you can to incompetence, and never attribute to incompetence that which you can to socialism.
As COVID-19 turns into an expensive exercise in tracking the progression of a common cold, the Chinese are grinning, but will they smile for long? The China Model was already collapsing, and the companies and wealth they gained through trickery and deceit have been declining from poor management. The world is waking up: China was a deal too good to be true, and we need to get out of it before the ineptness and malice of socialism take us all down
Dealing with a Society in Panic - The Coronavirus Pandemic

Due to the rapid spread of the latest Coronavirus and the illness it causes, COVID-19 there is widespread panic, fear, anxiety and depression.
It is essential that you learn how to cope with and to rise above the fear. Your life and the lives of those around you depend on it. There is no longer a ‘back to normal’. This pandemic is one of those events that causes a shift in the mindset and in the lives of most of humanity around the world. We are just witnessing the very beginning of this change. Within a few months there will be a new normal and a year from now another new normal. We are in a period of rapid change. In evolutionary biology this has been dubbed, by Professor Stephen Jay Gould, Punctuated equilibrium. Humanity is being forced to evolve extremely quickly by this pandemic. It is a situation outside of our control which can be extremely stressful and disconcerting.
Right now most people do not want things to change. They are used to the status quo and are afraid of a new normal that they do not know or understand. But in this situation we do not have the control we want to have. Those who are able to adapt and flow with change will be those who thrive in this new reality. Those who are not able to change will struggle and suffer.
My suggestion is to learn how to rise above the miasma of fear, panic, anger, depression and the other emotions that can distract us. Self-awareness is the most powerful tool you have at your disposal. Practice being mindful at all times and learn to relax even in the most stressful situations. Change and evolution are unavoidable and inevitable but there is an essence of you that never changes and is always unaffected by anything that occurs in life. Find that essence and access it as often as possible. That will get you through this evolutionary shift and help you thrive for your own benefit and for the benefit of your family and your community.
The coping mechanisms that humanity adopts to deal with this pandemic will have long lasting effects. Both the positive and negative mechanisms will be with us for a very long time. They will become the new normal.
Here are some recommendations for dealing with, functioning well and thriving during this current pandemic as well as other mass panics and shifts in the future.
- Learn as much as you can about COVID-19 and this Coronavirus but only get your information from experts in virology and epidemiology. Real scientists, not politicians or internet celebrities or propagandists. Be educated about this virus and the illness and how to protect yourself and your family.
- I work with clients on overcoming fear and anxiety and we apply these same tools to anxieties about the Coronavirus. It is essential to learn to see life objectively, especially when there are potential threats around. I have posted quite a few practices and articles about overcoming anxiety at my blog.
- If you do not already, learn and practice Mindfulness and meditation. Learn to step back from emotions and to see this moment objectively and realistically. Take time each morning and evening to do a mindfulness meditation or other form of meditation that helps you to have a clear mind. Practice short mindfulness exercises throughout the day every day as if it was the most important thing in your life. You can find many mindfulness and other meditations here and at my website.
- Always pay attention to everything going on in the world and in your own life from an objective, mindful, perspective. Ignore nothing. Be afraid of nothing. Be discerning. If you do this you will be able to rise above the miasma of panic, fear, hatred, anger, ignorance and depression.
- Learn to be self-aware. Self-Awareness is the most powerful skill you have. Know what emotions you are feeling and where they come from. Be completely aware of your own beliefs and preconceived ideas that might cloud your judgement. Learn to deal with all emotions and beliefs appropriately. A clear mind will allow you to make the best decisions possible in every situation and will prevent panic from causing you to make poor decisions.
- Do not get caught up in the foolish panic buying. Use your critical thinking skills Ask yourself questions like, do I really need 500 rolls of toilet paper or 500 bottles of water? This is not the zombie apocalypse. It is a dangerous virus but it is not the end of the world. Do not support those who gouge on prices during a situation like this. Do not buy their products and let them know you will never do business with them again. Discourage their bad behavior.
- Be very discerning about watching the news. Most news organizations feel that they must sensationalize to get more advertising revenue. So they over dramatize the news and they repeat the same stories over and over and over again all day and night. They believe that if you are frightened that you will watch their news programs even more often. It becomes addictive and increases panic. Some ‘news’ organizations use propaganda and lies to instill fear and cause this same addiction. Again, use your critical thinking skills. Watch the news once or twice a day just to get the important information you need then turn it off. Or get your news from legitimate news websites. Read what you need and then move on with your day or evening.
- Be extremely discerning on social media. There is a tremendous amount of misinformation and propaganda spread by those who wish to harm others, cause chaos or are just too willing to share false information with ‘good’ intentions because they are not using their own critical thinking skills. I suggest letting those who are sharing misinformation know that the information they are sharing is not true. If they do not delete their post then report it. Do your best to keep your social media clear of misinformation, propaganda and lies. Even viewing that material can be detrimental and can add to the fear and panic.
- Help others, especially those who might be more vulnerable to the virus. If you know someone who has a compromised immune system offer to go shopping for them. Check in on them. Let them know you are available.
- Wash your hands, use hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol, work from home if possible, be sensible and take good care of your health.
- Ignore politicians, media figures and propagandists who are using this crisis to manipulate you. Ignore politicians who are lying for their own benefit. Ignore and report internet trolls on social media. Do what you can personally to stop the spread of misinformation.
- In some countries you should not depend on your current government to help or to take care of you. They will not. Educate yourself about this outbreak and use the suggestions I have outline above.
- Recognize that there will be long term consequences and changes to our societies and cultures due to this pandemic. A shift so to speak. Some of those changes will be welcomed and many will be difficult like; widespread PTSD, general anxiety and depression. If your mind is clear you will not have to cope with these consequences and you will be able to help others who have become overwhelmed.
- Live your life fully and thrive. Do not let fear and panic distract you. Do your work to the very best of your abilities. Enjoy the pleasures of life. Continue to live, share, communicate, eat, exercise, support, be compassionate, be helpful and love.
Remember that we are all responsible to and for each other. That together we thrive and separated we subsist. Greed, ignorance and stupidity are anathema to a healthy and thriving society.
