The “Deadly” Hydroxychloroquine Publishing Scandal

July 1, 2020

by Elizabeth Woodworth, OffGuardian

A publishing scandal recently erupted around the use of the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to treat Covid 19. It is also known as quinine and chloroquine, and is on the WHO list of essential medicines.

The bark of the South American quina-quina tree has been used to treat malaria for 400 years. Quinine, a generic drug costing pennies a dose, is available for purchase online. In rare cases it can cause dizziness and irregular heartbeat.

In late May, 2020, The Lancet published a four-author study claiming that HCQ used in hospitals to treat Covid-19 had been shown conclusively to be a hazard for heart death. The data allegedly covered 96,000 patients in 671 hospitals on six continents.

After the article had spent 13 days in the headlines, dogged by scientific objections, three of the authors retracted it on June 5.

Meanwhile, during an expert closed-door meeting leaked May 24 in France, The Lancet and NEJM editors explained how financially powerful pharmaceutical players were “criminally” corrupting medical science to advance their interests.

On May 22, 2020, the time-honoured Lancet – one of the world’s two top medical journals – published the stunning claim that 671 hospitals on six continents were reporting life-threatening heart rhythms in patients taking hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for Covid-19.

The headlines that followed were breath-taking.

Although wider access to the drug had recently been urged in a petition signed by nearly 500,000 French doctors and citizens, WHO and other agencies responded to the article by immediately suspending the clinical trials that may have cleared it for use.

North American headlines did not mention that HCQ has been on the WHO list of essential drugs since the list began in 1977. Nor did they mention an investigative report on the bad press that hydroxychloroquine had been getting prior to May 22, and how financial interests had been intersecting with medicine to favour Gilead’s new, more expensive drug, Remdesivir.

The statistics behind the headlines

As a Canadian health sciences librarian who delivered statistics to a large public health agency for 25 years, I sensed almost immediately that the article had to be flawed.

Why? Because health statistics are developed for different purposes and in different contexts, causing them to exist in isolated data “stovepipes.” Many health databases, even within a single region or country, are not standardized and are thus virtually useless for comparative research.

How, I wondered, could 671 hospitals worldwide, including Asia and Africa, report comparable treatment outcomes for 96,000 Covid patients? And so quickly?

The Lancet is strong in public health and surely suspected this. Its award-winning editor-in-chief, Dr. Richard Horton, has been in his job since 1995.

So how could the damning HCQ claims have been accepted? Here is what I discovered.

The honour system in medical publishing

To some extent, authors submitting articles to medical journals are on the honour system, in which cited databases are trusted by the editors, yet are available for inspection if questioned.[2]

On May 28, an open letter from 200 scientists to the authors and The Lancet requested details of the data and an independent audit. The letter was “signed by clinicians, medical researchers, statisticians, and ethicists from across the world.” (full text here.)

The authors declined to supply the data, or even the hospital names. Meanwhile, investigative analysis was showing the statistics to be deeply flawed.

If this were not enough, the lead author was found to be in a conflict of interest with HCQ’s rival drug, Remdesivir:

Dr. Mandeep Mehra, the lead co-author is a director at Brigham & Women’s Hospital, which is credited with funding the study. Dr. Mehra and The Lancet failed to disclose that Brigham Hospital has a partnership with Gilead and is currently conducting two trials testing Remdesivir, the prime competitor of hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of COVID-19, the focus of the study.”

In view of the foregoing, the article was retracted by three of its authors on June 5.

How did this fraud get past The Lancet reviewers in the first place?

The answer emerges from what has remained an obscure French interview, although it has been quoted in the alternative media.

On May 24, a closed-door Chatham House expert meeting about Covid included the editors-in-chief of The Lancet and the NEJM. Comments regarding the article were leaked to the French press by a well-known health figure, Dr. Philippe Douste-Blazy,[xvii] who felt compelled to blow the whistle.

His resulting BFM TV interview was posted to YouTube with English subtitles on May 31, but it was not picked up by the English-speaking media.

These were The Lancet editor Dr. Richard Horton’s words, as reported by Dr. Douste-Blazy:

If this continues, we are not going to be able to publish any more clinical research data because pharmaceutical companies are so financially powerful today, and are able to use such methodologies as to have us accept papers which are apparently methodologically perfect, but which, in reality, manage to conclude what they want to conclude.”

Doust-Blazy made his own comments on Horton’s words:

I never thought the boss of The Lancet could say that. And the boss of the New England Journal of Medicine too. He even said it was ‘criminal’. The word was used by them.”

The final words in Doust-Blazy’s interview were:

When there is an outbreak like Covid, in reality, there are people like us – doctors – who see mortality and suffering. And there are people who see dollars. That’s it.”

The scientific process of building a trustworthy knowledge base is one of the foundations of our civilization. Violating this process is a crime against both truth and humanity.

Evidently the North American media does not consider this extraordinary crime to be worth reporting.

Originally published at Global Research. An interesting side note, before this fake study was published, Dr Wolfgang Wodarg theorised that use of HCQ may explain the higher death rate in patients of African ancestry – ed.

The Pensions Ponzi That Is Destroying Developed Nations

June 25, 2020

Yes The entire western Pension system is a Ponzi scheme. It is not paid by investments it is paid by existing and new entrants to the job market. It’s the very definition of a Ponzi scheme.Ponzi scheme – Wikipedia

It used to be 5–6 workers to 1 pensioner, it’s now around 3. Soon it will be even lower.

The thing that gets me is polticians openly admit this. They say “we need immigrants to pay our pensions”!?!!

Like immigrants don’t get old??

Unintended consequences

This is why Germany let in 1m immigrants. It wasn’t kindness. They have a declining population and need the workers to pay their Ponzi scheme.

Germany on course to accept one million refugees in 2015

They jailed Bernie Madoff for 150yrs for the same thing. Seems it’s okay when you’re a politician!!

Bernie Madoff – Wikipedia

On a side note this is one reason the Uk and EU can’t align and one reason we left. The EU in the main has a declining population. They want immigration to pay in the short term. The UK has had massive net immigration for decades. Our policies need to be different.

White Supremacism : A subperb response

June 14, 2020

An article I came across on Medium.com recently, obviously written by a woman who has succumbed to the brainwashing though media and internet of the Black Supremacist lobby began like this:

hen NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick began kneeling in protest during the national anthem in 2016, I was slightly appalled: He lives in the greatest country in the world and enjoys the pleasures of a well-paying profession. Yet he chooses to disrespect the flag and those who fought and died for him?! The nerve.

Those feelings simmered. They stayed with me for a while.

But Kaepernick was right to bring light to the situation of police brutality directed at black Americans. No, I don’t agree with his “pig cop” socks (he reportedly stated they were only “meant to represent rogue cops”). No, I don’t personally agree with disrespecting the flag, though doing so is protected by the First Amendment. But the message of enough is enough? Using his platform for a public display?

Why shouldn’t black Americans — who feel helpless and enraged when they see the obvious disparity in treatment by law enforcement — peacefully protest by kneeling? Continue reading:

One of the first responses in the thread under this pathetic, snivelling virtue signallers spiel was absolutely superb:

Please look at the numbers. The media narrative is a lie. Police violence is in precipitous decline, and black on white violence far exceeds white on black. If we just let the narrative melt logic and statistics we’re not really saving any lives.

As for Kaepernick, you just don’t get to do whatever you want at work. No one does.

Especially when you work inside a brand ecosystem with so many people, so much investment, and so much at stake.

“Oh typical, you value business over life.”

Yawn. You don’t have an exclusive hold on valuing human life. You can value both, and Kaepernick, who has an enormous platform even in his free time, can do whatever he wants with it.

YouTube Blanks Another Video for Questioning Coronavirus Narrative

May 29, 2020

YouTube has cancelled a video called ‘The Case Against The Lockdowns’ – featuring journalist Toby Young and Nobel-Prizewinning scientist Michael Levitt – because it fails to support the correct, World-Health-Organisation-approved narrative on Chinese coronavirus.

Young is founder of the Free Speech Union, which campaigns against censorship. Levitt – who doesn’t speak but can be seen nodding in approval at Young’s remarks – is a professor of structural biology at Stanford University, who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2013. But none of this has cut any ice with YouTube which has taken down the video claiming it ‘violates’ its ‘community standards.’

This follows a directive  issued in April by YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, who has promised to ban any content that goes against WHO recommendations.

Speaking on CNN’s Reliable Sources, Wojcicki said that the Google-owned video streaming platform would be “removing information that is problematic”.

 She told host Brian Stelter that this would include “anything that is medically unsubstantiated”.

“So people saying ‘take vitamin C; take turmeric, we’ll cure you’, those are the examples of things that would be a violation of our policy,” she said.

“Anything that would go against World Health Organisation recommendations would be a violation of our policy.”

Eminence and expertise are no defence to this ruling. Earlier this month, YouTube took down an interview with leading epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski, for similar reasons.

As the NewYork Post reported:

Dr. Knut M. Wittkowski, former head of biostatistics, epidemiology and research design at Rockefeller University, says YouTube removed a video of him talking about the virus that had racked up more than 1.3 million views.

Wittkowski, 65, is a ferocious critic of the nation’s current steps to fight the coronavirus. He has derided social distancing, saying it only prolongs the virus’ existence, and has attacked the current lockdown as mostly unnecessary.

Wittkowski, who holds two doctorates in computer science and medical biometry, believes the coronavirus should be allowed to create “herd immunity,” and that short of a vaccine, the pandemic will only end after it has sufficiently spread through the population.

“With all respiratory diseases, the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity. About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected,” he says in the now-deleted video.

This is part of a troubling onslaught against free speech by Silicon Valley. It’s not just YouTube which is censoring coronavirus sceptics but also Twitter.

As western democracies descend into tyranny and dystopian despotism there are a couple of question I would like clarified. The first regards the viral infection. Can virologist genuinely distinguish between all other viral infection and the Chinese virus many call SARS-COV2 or quite loosely, Covid 19 or Corona virus? I know a lot of people have tested positive when they are only suffering from asthma and hay fever. This has caused them to be quarantined from the workplace. Secondly, can the deaths from Corona virus or Covid 19 be identified as being caused by the Chinese SARS or caused by other comorbidities and not the Chinese SARS the WHO told the world about? If it is the case that other infections caused respiratory death or heart attacks then the entire Government response is highly questionable. It is interesting that the Office of National Statistics state this paragraph: “Because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, our regular weekly deaths release now provides a separate breakdown of the numbers of deaths involving COVID-19: that is, where COVID-19 or suspected COVID-19 was mentioned anywhere on the death certificate, including in combination with other health conditions. If a death certificate mentions COVID-19 it will not always be the main cause of death but may be a contributory factor. This new bulletin summarises the latest weekly information and will be updated each week during the pandemic.”
I wonder what the real mortality rate is due to the Wuhan flu and not the suspicion of a medical practitioner. YouTube won’t let you know.

The hard left is pushing for total control. It is making the same blunder as before: forcing humanity into “egalitarian” shape, in the deluded belief that humanity will retain that shape when the oppressive means to this end fall away. Of course, they never do; they rise to genocide and sink to stagnation. And what really happens is an exercise in brutality and torture and loss, massively damaging the genuine good which arises from the spontaneous forms of life. Orwell skewered them in the figure of Winston’s tormentor-in-chief, O’Brien. How nauseatingly absurd that they are at it again!

Coronavirus Uses Same Strategy As HIV To Evade, Cripple Immune System: Chinese Study Finds

Coronavirus: Something Wrong Here

Coronavirus Uses Same Strategy As HIV To Evade, Cripple Immune System: Chinese Study Finds

Coronavirus Uses Same Strategy As HIV To Evade, Cripple Immune System: Chinese Study Finds

Back on February 1, when the coronavirus pandemic was only just starting to attract broader attention and the China-influenced mainstream media was still politically inclined to minimize the severity of the disease before pulling a sharp U-turn and now going full bore with a narrative of just how dangerous it is for the Trump administration to reopen the economy (because if the economy recovers by November, Trump just might get re-elected), we published an article referencing an Arxiv pre-print which found that the covid-19 genome contained “HIV Insertions”, stoking fears that the virus was an artificially created bioweapon. While the mere suggestion that this virus was man-made – nevermind sharing discrete segments of its genetic structure with HIV – sparked outrage among the well-paid mercenary enforcers of the First Amendment known as “fact-checkers” who are employed by such biased organizations as Twitter and Facebook to stifle any line of inquiry that runs contrary to whatever dominant narrative has been blessed by the Zuckerbergs and Dorseys of the world, it was none other than the man who discovered the HIV virus back in 1983, that confirmed our suspicions saying that “the virus was man-made.”

As we reported in April, Professor Luc Montagnier, the 2008 Nobel Prize winner for Medicine, claimed that SARS-CoV-2 is a manipulated virus that was accidentally released from a laboratory in Wuhan, China, and added that the WUhan laboratory, known for its work on coronaviruses, tried to use one of these viruses as a vector for HIV in the search for an AIDS vaccine.

Needless to say, since this narrative was destructive to China and all those self-proclaimed experts who had vowed there is no way the Wuhan virus was i) manmade, ii) released by a Chinese lab and iii) had HIV-insertions, the story was quickly buried and never received as much as a minute of airtime in conventional media sources.

That may all change now, as a result of the third, and perhaps most startling yet twist in the bizarre saga of the coronavirus, after the South China Morning Post reported that a new study by Chinese scientists has found that the novel coronavirus uses the same strategy to evade attack from the human immune system as HIV.

Specifically, both viruses remove marker molecules on the surface of an infected cell that are used by the immune system to identify invaders, the researchers said in a non-peer reviewed paper titled “The ORF8 Protein of SARS-CoV-2 Mediates Immune Evasion through Potently Downregulating MHC-I”, posted on pre-print website bioRxiv.org on Sunday (a paper which the great hordes of amateur epidemiologists will make sure is promptly taken down or else their carefully planted propaganda may be obliterated). They warned that this commonality could mean Sars-CoV-2, the clinical name for the virus, could be around for some time, like HIV.

Separately, virologist Zhang Hui and a team from Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou also said their discovery added weight to clinical observations that the coronavirus was showing “some characteristics of viruses causing chronic infection”.

Some more details on the Hui study: the researchers collected killer T cells from five patients who had recently recovered from Covid-19; those immune cells are generated by people after they are infected with Sars-CoV-2, and whose job is to find and destroy the virus. But the killer T cells used in the study were not effective at eliminating the virus in infected cells. When the scientists took a closer look they found that a molecule known as major histocompatibility complex, or MHC, was missing.

The molecule is an identification tag usually present in the membrane of a healthy cell, or in sick cells infected by other coronaviruses such as severe acute respiratory syndrome, or Sars. It changes with infections, alerting the immune system whether a cell is healthy or infected by a virus. However, there is one notable disease that makes MHC molecules disappears from the cell surface: HIV.

The coronavirus removes these markers by producing a protein known as ORF8, which binds with MHC molecules, then pulls them inside the infected cell and destroys them, the researchers said.

ORF8, which is also known to play an important role in viral replication, is the gene that is targeted by most commercial test kits to detect viral loads in nose or oral swabs.

Needless to say, the absence of MHC makes the creation of vaccines against covid problematic, although the study authors had a suggestion: while drugs used to treat Covid-19 patients mainly target enzymes or structural proteins needed for viral replication, Zhang and his team suggested compounds be developed “specifically targeting the impairment of MHC by ORF8, and therefore enhancing immune surveillance for Sars-CoV-2 infection”.

And here is where things gets very messy for the frauds known as “fact-checkers” who – without any actual facts or knowledge – threw up all over our February report that the coronavirus shared genetic material with HIV: while the mainstream media did everything in its power to censor any suggestions that Covid and HIV having genetic similarities (after all who wants to be threatened by an airborne version of AIDS) now it is none other than the South China Morning Post which writes that “earlier studies found the spike protein of the new coronavirus had a structure that allowed it to enter many types of human cells and bind with them. The same structure was also found in HIV, but not in other coronaviruses found in animals such as bats and pangolins.”

Oops, the SCMP will have a a lot of explaining for reporting on, you know, the facts.

But wait there’s more. Another study by researchers in New York and Shanghai also found that the Sars-CoV-2, sometimes called the “Wu Flu” could kill T cells, or as the SCMP puts it “the discovery came after autopsies in China found immune system destruction similar to that caused by AIDS.”

At this point, the SCMP has pointed out all the exact same facts – that the coronavirus not only shares genetic material with HIV, but also evades and cripples the immune system in a similar way to HIV – that got the “highly respected” StatNews to accuse Zero Hedge of spreading an “infodemic.” We wonder if StatNews author John Gregory will append his “analysis” now that actual “facts” have emerged showing that it’s not the infodemic we should be afraid of, but the censordemic.

* * *

Of course, if covid and HIV share a similar approach to hiding from, and crippling the host immune system, kiss any hope for a vaccine – or cure – goodbye. Four decades after HIV – a virus that attacks the immune system – emerged, it has killed about 32 million people globally and there is still no vaccine or drug that can completely cure the disease.

Which begs the question: who were the real conspiracy theorists – those who reported the facts, or all those countless “mainstream” publications who sought to stifle the facts, by accusing us – and many others – of peddling conspiracy theories. For the answer, we go back to what HIV-discovered Montagnier said in April:  “Conspirators are the opposite camp, hiding the truth,” he said without wanting to accuse anyone, but hoping that the Chinese will admit to what he believes happened in their laboratory. “In any case, the truth always comes out, it is up to the Chinese government to take responsibility.”

And while we admire Montagnier’s optimism,we are not holding our breath until the truth finally does come out. Until then, the SCMP may want to watch the bank of its social media accounts – can’t have the peasants realizing they were lied to all along. Twitter, for example, has developed a nasty habit of immediately banning anyone who dares to tell the truth about anything.

Coronavirus: Herd Susceptibility

May 10, 2020

It’s a bit disappointing read so many articles online, in publications that style themselves as “alternative news,” contrarian or against the mainstream, which are so unquestioningly supportive of the official narrative that the COVID – 19 virus is an almost unstoppable killer and the only way we can save ourselves and the civilisation that has given us our comfortable lives is by destroying the civilisation that has given us our comfortable lives. The kind of writing that supports continuation of lockdown, which as we should all know by now, was based on “scientists” running mathematical models of the virus that were so ineptly designed their output cannot even be classified as “not  fit for purpose.”

The figures for likely deaths from COVID – 19 Coronavirus were so wildly exaggerated and so completely unsupported by factual evidence, it would be wrong to describe them as pure speculation or even guesswork. But it was an opportunity for politicians: with the number of deaths, based on the history of previous Coronavius variant, almost certain to fall way below the hyperbolic estimates, it is easy to claim as they did when the “swine ‘flu pandemic,” predicted to cause 575,000 deaths worldwide was actually responsible for 18,500 according to official figures.

It was then easy for the politicians and bureaucrats to claim that the discrepancy between predicted deaths” and real deaths was down to their panicked responses, which had saved almost 500,000 lives. One would think it does not take high intelligence to recognise that comparisons between “projected deaths” and real deaths are meaningless. But lo and behold! Only last week I came across somebody in a comment thread on Medium.com claiming that the USA’s lockdown had been correct as the 2.2 million projected deaths had been reduced by isolation and other measures to a mere 68,000. We can safely assume that the “other measures” include deliberately muddling reality and fantasy.

Other areas of fantasy involve some of the conspiracy theories that pop up like garden weeds in a warm spell whenever the public are asked to believe a narrative so opaque and so at odds with what can be observed. Interestingly while suggestions such as the virus having originated in a biological research laboratory on Wuhan, China, which is now recognised as almost certainly the case, are dismissed as the ravings of “conspiracy theorists,” trying to discredit  questioning of the narrative in that way only makes other more whacky conspiracy theories more credible. Thus the claim that COVID – 19 is a biological weapon designed for use against the west or that the virus was a US creation deliberately released by CIA agents in China are not going away anytime soon.

Another theory that though ostensibly ludicrous, may have a grain of truth at its core is that the virus can be spread by the 5G wireless telephony now being rolled out by communications corporations, a notion UK Television presenter Eammon Holmes was accuse of promoting on the news magazine he fronts, although Mr. Holmes actually said nothing of the kind. It is certain a virus cannot be transmitted by Electromagnetic Radiation in any frequency range, but there are two quite important points which suggest Eammon Holmes was right to say there is no evidence that radiation from 5G masts is harmless.

Without getting technical (who’s got time to read a technical explanation,) 5G is a much higher intensity of radiation than previous cellular or radio / TV frequencies and as everybody knows radiation is harmful (anyone not heard of Chenobyl? Or Fukushima? Different circumstances but  electromagnetic radiation from those two nuclear reactor meltdowns harmed living tissue all the same. It isn’t the strength of radio activity alone that causesd problems, it’s the strength * the duration, so a low dose for a long period can be more damaging than a short sharp blast. Look up Banana Equivalent Does if you don’t believe me.

OK, eating even a hundred bananas a day is not going to give you coronavirus, but bombardment with radiation is known to harm the immune system, which would make people more vulnerable to virus infection.

Secondly, in the 1980s and 90s there were long running arguments about whether cellphones caused brain damage. The phone companies, which were making millions from sales and subscriptions denied it, governments, which were making billlions from selling operators’ licences backed them.

Years later it was admitted that yes, walking around with your mobile phone clamped to your ear all day could cause permanent harm. No problem, we could easily be safe by taking a few simple precautions, limit usage, use a hands – free set contained in an insulating case, that kind of thing.We are going down the same road now with 5G and many doctors and researchers are questioning the wisdom of this. So when Eammon Holmes rebuked his co – presenter for parroting corporate prop[aganda, in my habitually sceptical opinion Eammon was right to question her. He could have phrased his response better, but even I am not sceptical enough to think This Morning is entirely scripted and who among us has never phrased a spontaneous response poorly.

Conspiracy theories and crazy talk are bad things to be sure. But the question is how clear is the distinguishing line between genuine ‘crazy talk’ and hard but legitimate questions which authorities do not want asked, examples being: “How did the twin towers of the World Trade Centre come down in what looked like a controlled demolition after being randomly struck by passenger jets? or If the MMR vaccine is totally safe why has the US vaccine court made multi – million dollar awards to parents whose children showed evidence of developmental damage shortly after receiving it?  These are not conspiracy theories, they are legitimate questions. And if such questions are to be dubbed “conspiracy theories”, suppressed by mainstream media and censored by search engine tachnology from internet news feeds  how are we voters to tell whether journalists are doing their job of asking those questions and calling our elected representatives to account, or whether they are simply shilling for the government’s official line on any issue in order to curry favour with The Powers That Be?

To take one example: asking whether the virus originated in a Chinese lab has, curiously, been dismissed by official sources since the start of the outbreak as ‘crazy talk.’  But is it crazy to ask this question, given what we know about the proximity of the Wuhan virus lab to the ‘wet market’ which the Chinese government tells us is the source of the virus, and the known shoddy safety standards at that lab? Should we blithely trust the assurances of a totalitarian state, and dismiss those who challenge it as a nutters? The Washington Post, not generally known for its conspiracist ravings, doesn’t seem to think so:

Washington Post – Wuhan lab safety issues

Genuine conspiratorial nonsense – faked moon landings, Bilderbeg shape shifting lizards and the like – needs to be separated from hard questions which go against the official grain. Otherwise journalists, end up being nothing more than useful idiots for power. I remember the fake Iraq War dossier with its talks of Saddam Hussein’s Weapons Of Mass Destruction which all the mainstream journalists lapped up and sensationalised, whilst laughing at the ‘crazy talk’ which suggested the whole case might be fabricated to justify a regime change campaign against a mad, but popular among his people, dictator who refused to stick to th globalist script that had been prepared for him. Of course Saddam Hussein had secret weapons of mass destruction that posed an existential threat to the west, the mainstream media sneered in chorus.

I’m also old enough to remember the assassination of President Kennedy (I was mid evening when the news broke in Britain, I was at a school speech day at the time and I’m sure the news spoiled the night for my former teachers, who would have been ready to rejoice because they knew that when I shuffled off the stage with my certificates they would have seen the last of their most disruptive and under – performing pupil. It was the Kennedy assassination that led to the phrase “conspiracy theorist” being coined. We will never know the full story of what happened that day in Dallas but the questions asked by ‘conspiracy theorists’ over the following years totally debunked the official narrative.

Mainstream media’s smug dismissals of conspiracy theorists can easily make them look like a New World Order a stooges when on a longer timeline the conspiracy theories turn out to be much closer to the truth than the official narrative.

Describing people warning about the possible dangers of 5G with ‘conspiracy theorists’ who claim the world is hollow and a master race of highly intelligent, technologically advanced, non humans live beneath our feet might make them look ridiculous, but is certainly not a scientific approach. It has been well known for many years (but generally suppressed) that cellphone radiation can be harmful (sic) and that children living close to cell phone towers have higher rates of leukaemia that normal. Listen to Frank Clegg, former president of Microsoft Canada in this YouTube video or do your own research which will reveal many respected scientists and a lot of research published in peer reviewed journals warn of genetic damages, neurological disorders and changes to the reproductive system as a result of prolonged exposure to radiation from phones and wi – fi. I would suggest that you look into this for fairness’ sake.

Eammon Holmes may have avoided much the opprobrium cast his way if he had merely quoted the late Christopher Hitchens: “What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.” Unfortunately spontaneous responses do not give us a lot of time to think.

As for the COVID – 19 Coronavirus, the narrative spun by government propagandists, research grant phishing scientists, and mainstream media pundits is looking more shaky by the day as statistical frauds are revealed and genuine experts rather than con artists with mathematical models tell us most of what we have been told is wring. There is very little chance of being affected in open areas, staying in the enclosed space of our homes was the worst advice we could have been given. The disease does disproportionately affect old people but even so the kill rate of COVID – 19 is way below that of the usual strains of seasonal flu and most healthy people, with no underlying medical condistions who are infected will show only mild symptoms or none at all.

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock today confirmed the government plans to ask people aged over 70 to isolate themselves for up to four months amid a coronavirus pandemic. The goal is to protect them.
It’s quite obvious to us, experienced bloggers that we are, that the government, civil service, law encorgement and national security agencies and all the assorted experts and talking heads have forgotten the lesson our generation learned from The Hitch Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy …


Coronavirus: EU States Rebel Against Brussels As Van Leyen Demands Borders Stay Open

The cracks in European solidarity are growing deeper by the day as the coronavirus crisis threatens to split the bloc. The response of European leaders has varied from panic, as several member-states have takeen unilateral action including severe border closures, to a laissez – fair attidude, notably from France’s idiot president Emmanuel Macron who favours total inaction, having said complacently that viruses don’t recognise borders.

US John Hopkins University Prof Says Don’t Believe Corona Virus Numbers
The number of confirmed cases outside of China roughly tripled once again this week, and if this outbreak continues to escalate at this pace there will be more than a million confirmed cases in less than a month. But as bad as the official numbers are, the truth is that there are a whole lot more people walking around out there that have caught the virus but have not been tested.

Coronavirus Contains “HIV Insertions”: Claim Stokes Fears Over Genetically Modified BioweaponFor the past two weeks mainstream media reporting of the epidemic of a new strain of coronavirus in China has been getting more and more hysterical. However, reports have pushed back against one “conspiracy theory” about the origins of the virus that has now infected as many as 70,000+ people in the central China city of Wuhan alone (depending on whom you believe).

Corona Virus: Should We Worry
The official data coming out of China and from other sources including the World Health Organisation (WHO) on the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus continues to suggest an exponential growth rate. With more and more infectious disease experts are now openly calling the virus a full-blown global pandemic, many people are asking should we in the west be worried and how bad might things get?

Big Pharma billionaire charged with conspiracy and bribery of doctors
Not long ago it would have been inconceivable that one day a Big Pharma company founder and owner would be arrested for running a criminal drug cartel, but that is exactly what happened a few days ago. “Federal authorities arrested the billionaire founder and owner of Insys Therapeutics Thursday on charges of bribing doctors and pain clinics into prescribing the company’s fentanyl product to their patients …

France Moves to Make ‘Conspiracy Theories’ Illegal by Government Decree
I have little time for people who yell ‘conspiracy theory’. These emotionally crippled, intellectually retarded, conformity addicted, delusional, left leaning, low – information sucklers of Nanny State’s bitter pap might fancy themselves the voices of reason but in reality they never think anything through.The latest ‘conspiracy theory’ to exercise their vocal chords and typing fingers is the Paris shooting. Given the alacrity with which the socialist government in France has siezed the opportunity to curtail citizens liberties in order to further a global fascist agenda, I would not dismiss the idea.

Everything The Science Whores Told You About Eating Fat Was A Lie.
We have been telling you so for years, but at last the world seems to be cathing up with The Daily Stirrer. Another independent study confirms that the scientists (‘A sack of rogues bought and paid for with corporate gods’ to paraphrase Burns) have been lying about the health risks of eating saturated fat. It’s process vegetable fat, created in laboratories by scientists and other synthesized foods that damage human health.

Downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 News Developments Being Suppress By Mainstream Media.
Given the tarnished reputation of mainstream media after decades of its reporting only news favourable to establishment political and corporate interests, it ought not to surprise anybody that television and print news organisations have been suppressing news of developments in the quest to discover the truth about downed Malaysia Airlines Beoing 777, Flight MH17.

Tacit Approval From US Liberals For Islamic Indoctrination In US Schools.
Some schools in US State Of Virginia are closed today, because parents objected to Islamic indoctrination by the state education system. The US Constitution’s clauses on the separation of church and state forbid the promotion of any specific religious teaching, in fact US liberals tend to get their knickers in a twist over signs in classrooms that show the motto “In God we trust.”

The Nuttiness Of NeoCon Destabilization Campaigns.
As the instability in the middle east spreads to Europe, North Africa and into Sourthern Asia we look as the role of the so – called neocons, piratical, mostly American corporate, world domination freaks who naively see the collapse of nations and the global economic structure as somehow working to their advantage. Ironically the neocons are aided and abetted by the neo-liberals, theoretically their rivals although the groups share the same broad aims.

ER Doctor Drops Multiple COVID-19 Bombshells

April 30, 2020
  • As the video posted on YouTube by Dr. Dan Erikson (pictured below) was quickly removed for “violating community standards,” we reproduce a text summary on report on his video in the public interest. There is a link to another video platform’s copy of the video at the foot of the page byt we can’t promise it will still be online by the time yoou find this page.
    People who question the increassingly incredible narrative on COVID – 19 are being censored by Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple and Microsoft, it is our duty to ensure material posted by those who try to tell the truth about the COVID – 19 hoax be kept in the public domain – Editor.

As we reported earlier this month only nine states in America that are not under stay-at-home orders by their governors.

Utah, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Oklahoma, Arkansas,, and South Carolina are now the only states where residents are not under orders to only leave their homes for “essential” purposes.

“The contrast is the starkest in five states — Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota,, and South Dakota — where there are no such orders in place, either in major cities or statewide. Another four had partial restrictions issued locally in certain cities or counties,” the New York Times reports.

Is this the right thing to do at this moment? Well, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons thinks that this is the best thing we can do at the moment.

The only way to effectively combat the disease from a practical standpoint (other than herd immunity) is to shield those at high risk until the virus has run its course through the country. Patients with significant underlying health conditions (cancer, lung disease, immune deficiency disorders) and those over the age of 65 should isolate themselves to the best of their abilities – the Association Of America Physician and Surgeons reported.

Everything that was done so far will only damage our economy and one ER doctor confirmed that the lockdown is not needed.

Before COVID-19 was even detected in the United States, Dan Erickson, a former emergency room physician who now co-owns Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, bought as many tests for the virus as he could. He knew it would be here eventually and wanted to be ready to test those who needed and wanted it.

Now, after testing thousands of people, he and his business partner, physician Artin Massihi, say they have enough data to draw some conclusions about COVID-19.

Their message: COVID-19 is more ubiquitous and less deadly than we think. It’s similar to influenza and we should therefore reopen society and stop treating the situation like the lethal menace it was initially thought to be.

“Two months ago we didn’t know this so I’m bringing it to light now,” Erickson said Wednesday at a news conference held at his Coffee Road urgent care.

Kern County Public Health Services Spokeswoman Michelle Corson and an epidemiologist contacted by The Californian said they didn’t agree with the doctors’ recommendation to end social distancing and immediately start reopening society.

“This is a many-headed hydra. It’s really unfortunate to boil this all down to it’s just flu,” said Andrew Noymer, associate professor of public health at UC Irvine. “There’s no flu season that looks anything like New York does right now.”

‘Similar to flu’

Accelerated urgent care has done 5,213 COVID-19 tests at its five Bakersfield locations, Erickson said — which is more than half the 9,197 tests done so far in Kern County. Of those, 340 were positive, according to Erickson.

If that percentage of positive cases were assumed to represent the entire population of Kern County, which is roughly 900,000, it would mean about 58,000 people in Kern have had the virus, far more than the nearly 700 official confirmed, Erickson said.

That many cases would “indicate there is a widespread (COVID-19) infection, similar to flu,” Erickson said.

And if we don’t shut down the country for flu, should we keep doing it for coronavirus?

“It’s about looking at trends and saying we’re not seeing what they’ve been talking about for the past six to eight weeks,” said Massihi, referring to predictions that up to 100,000 Americans could die of the virus and hospitals would become swamped with patients. “We’ve crippled the economy. There’s a lot of domestic issues going on. Is social isolation warranted for the healthy?”

Using the same calculation, Erickson estimates 12 percent of the population statewide, or some 4.7 million Californians, have already had COVID-19. With about 1,400 deaths so far in California, that puts the statewide death rate at about .03 percent, he said.

“Does that (low death rate) necessitate sheltering in place? Does that necessitate shutting down medical systems? Does that necessitate being out of work?” Erickson asked.

Nationwide, about 42,000 people have died of coronavirus as of Wednesday. Between 30,000 and 60,000 die of flu annually, Erickson said, citing CDC data.

The secondary effects of the shutdown are considerable, too, he said. They include a dramatic decrease in volumes at hospitals and even Erickson’s urgent care practice, where staff are mostly testing patients for COVID-19 these days.
“If you’re going to dance on someone’s constitutional rights you better have a good reason, you better have a really good reason, not just a theory,” he said. “The data is showing us it’s time to lift (the stay-at-home orders) so if we don’t lift, what is the reason?”

Coronavirus is a dream come true for Bill Gates, who lives to vaccinate

April 17, 2020

In case you haven’t noticed, Microsoft co-founder and billionaire “philanthropist” Bill Gates is champing at the bit to implement his long-awaited mandatory vaccination agenda. And what better catalyst for making it happen than the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis?

Just months after his infamous Event 201, which was all about a hypothetical pandemic scenario, out pops the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) right on schedule to bring to life Gates’ fantasy dream of jabbing every person on the planet with one of his “philanthropic” vaccines.

And wouldn’t you know it, but Gates also recently stepped down from the board of Microsoft – just before the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) struck, it’s important to note – in order to focus more on his “philanthropic” endeavors, which we know from history actually center around his eugenics agenda.

With the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) being a ripe target for exploitation, Gates has already thrown billions of dollars into setting up multiple avenues for developing not just one, but seven, potential vaccines for it. He’s also calling for “digital certificates” to prove that a person has been vaccinated, allowing them reentry back into the world economy.

This is in addition to the $450 million that Gates contributed to the effort to “eradicate polio,” as well as numerous other endeavors he’s been a part of over the years that all have one thing in common: mandatory vaccination.

The guy lives to vaccinate, and it’s really the only thing he ever seems to talk about. Sure, he’ll occasionally mention pharmaceuticals as well – never nutrition, by the way – but vaccines are Gates’ thing, for which he almost has a bizarre type of fetish … Continue reading

Coronavirus: Something Wrong Here

April 10, 2020

THE GOVERNMENT TOLD US SURRENDER OUR LIVES TO THEM, AND WE DID JUST THAT: WHY ARE PEOPLE NOT QUESTIONING WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Let’s go back a couple of years and look at what happened in the year 2018. In 2018, there were 35,500,000 reported cases of the flu. 16,500,000 people actually received medical treatment for the flu. 490,600 people were hospitalized for the flu. A total of 34,200 people died from the flu. And this was exclusively here in America where these numbers were reported. Why did our government, and the mainstream media not tell us to stay at home? Why did our government, and the mainstream media not tell us to avoid being around other people? Why were people not waiting in lines at the grocery stores as they attempted to purchase food and other items which may or may not still be on the shelves? Why was our healthcare system not shut down and only accepting emergency patients? Why did we not move our society to a point of total chaos and confusion just because the government decided to basically shut down normal societal activities?

First of all, I do not accept the above numbers as being accurate, mainly because the source of these numbers cannot be trusted, just as is true with the numbers we are hearing today relating to the coronavirus. The government and the mainstream media has told us to basically surrender our lives, and put our freedoms on hold, and sadly, they are getting very little resistance from our collective society, nor do many even bother to ask questions relating to this very questionable societal disruption.

We are being fed these massive numbers daily, relating to coronavirus cases and coronavirus deaths, and people don’t question anything, as if either the government or the mainstream media have ever been a reliable source for the truth. We are told of long lines of people waiting to get tested or treated at hospitals for the coronavirus, yet, no one can find evidence of those long lines anywhere. People are staying at home because they have been told to do so, and unless we woke up in 1940 Germany this morning, this should be troubling to all of us. People are losing their jobs, businesses are closing down, and the stock market is being pushed to the point that we literally do not know what to expect from one day to the next, and this is all transpiring because the government is making it happen.

The world is being turned upside down because of a virus which is far less reaching into our society than the annual flu problem we have grown to anticipate every single year. It is like we are experiencing a global societal experiment to see how quickly and thoroughly our global society can actually be shut completely down. By the way, obviously the answer to that question is now “it can be shut down in just a few days.” Lives will be changed forever; some will never recover economically, and the small businesses, especially here in the states, will take a hit they may not have seen since that cold November of 1929. In the short time that our nation, and even the world has been shut down, people seem to have just accepted the fact that they are just supposed to act and behave as the governments tells them. We, as a collective society seem to be willing to forfeit our daily rights and freedoms when the government decides it is in our best interest. Like it or not; believe it or not; the government, along with the help of the mainstream media now know that they can shut us down completely whenever they wish to do so. And if you don’t believe it, maybe you should ask yourself why we are shut down as I type these words?
