The Pandemic Route to Tranny

Ron Paul: Europeans Are Waking Up To Government COVID Tyranny. Why Are Americans Still Asleep?

Authored by Ron Paul via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity,

Tens of thousands of Germans marched through Berlin on Saturday, proclaiming a “Day of Freedom” and demanding an end to government-mandated face masks and “social distancing.” The UK and Netherlands also saw large protests against their governments’ tyrannical actions in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

According to media accounts, the Berlin protesters held signs reading “We are being forced to wear a muzzle,” “Natural defense instead of vaccination,” and “We are making noise because you are stealing our freedom!”

Good for them!

The New York Times Tweeted that the masses of Berlin demonstrators were all “Nazis” and “conspiracy theorists.” Does the “paper of record” really want us to believe there were perhaps a million Nazis active in the streets of Berlin? Wouldn’t that be alarming?

The fact is, Europeans are realizing that their government-mandated lockdowns did little or nothing to protect them from the virus, while causing economic catastrophe and untold human suffering.

They likely looked around and noticed that Sweden, which never locked down its economy, rejected face masks, and kept its restaurants and other places of business open, did not fare any worse than the countries that have been turned into open air prisons for much of the year. In fact, Sweden had a lower death rate from the virus than strict lockdown states like the UK and France. No wonder people are starting to get angry.

Hey Ron Paul , and while you’re at it, tell your son Rand to investigate the KY Medical Board case #467 1994. This whole medical /health situation is a corrupt, political cesspool. I am a retired physician  ( or was  forced into retirement because of what the KY Medical Board did to me years ago.) Now they are leaning on the doctors to NOT prescribe HCQ, Zn, Zithromax. I caught COVID even though I did all the mask and hand washing dances.  SARS 2 COVID is contagious as hell and is everywhere.  You’ll get it when you get it. Deal with it. The data is corrupt. The treatment is corrupt. The politicians and Dr Fauci are corrupt.

 

 

Avoidance Tactics and that Menu At The Cragwood

July 25, 2020

Supposed to be spending a few days at a luxury hotel in Windermere but I called it off, mainly because the great reopening is something of a letdown. Things are half open and that which we can do involves standing around in queues a lot and wearing masks. So I cried off, citing problems with leg and hip on my paralyzed side.

Then I made the mistake of looking at the gallery pix of the menu at the Cragwood Hotel where my daughter Gabby had booked us in. Pretentious does not even begin to describe the food on offer, and when I saw confit of swede as one on my five – a – day it was too much. A swede is a Mongol Wurzel, a big red turnip. I’m from Shropshire and I remember from my childhood down on the farm (ooh arr, ooh arr,) that Mangol Wurzels are mainly grown as winter feed for cattle.

confit=of-swede

I guess the orange blobs in the foreground are confit of swede. But fuck me, what are you supposed to do with that, eat it or enter it for the Turner Prize

Seriously, I wasn’t keen on going to the lakes anyway, I had hoped to go to N. Wales, dragging son Dave with Debbie along so I could take Gabby and the kids to the top of Snowdon. It was something I could join in from a wheelchair; I said Gabby Dave and the kids could walk up while me and Debbie (bad back) would take the mountain railway. Gabby was up for that but Dave was not so keen.

But it was clear stuff was not going to be open because every time the deadline for lifting restrictions gets near, the mathematical modelling wankers come up with a new scare story. So my next idea was to go to Seahouses in Northumberland and stay at the Bamburgh Castle Hotel and go over the causeway to Lindisfarne ( # me me on the corner when the lights are coming on and I’ll be there, I promise I’ll be there # …) and visit Bamburgh Castle, but no I got my arm twisted to go to the lakes (like I got my arm twisted to get a stupidphone instead of a burner)  and sure, the view of Windermere would be very nice but I saw Windermere a lot when I was schlepping up and down to Workington and Whitehaven. I haven’t spent much time in Northumberland.

It’s true about my leg and hip, they’re terrible at the moment, and then to raise my hopes only for them to be shattered again, I’ll get an odd hour when walking feels almost normal, but slower. And then everything tightens up again.  Bollocks.

Some Comments Of Latest BLM Idiocy

Bristol Mayor Branded ‘Not Really Black’, ‘Traitor to the Race’ for Removing Illegal BLM Statue

The Mayor of Bristol has revealed that he was branded “a traitor to the race” and “not really black” after an illegal Black Lives Matter statue was removed from the plinth formerly occupied by Edward Colston.

Mayor Marvin Rees, the son of a black Jamaican father and a white British mother, had said that “what is installed on [Colston’s plinth] must be decided by the people of Bristol” after London-based artist Marc Quinn illegally installed a statue of BLM activist Jen Reid performing a Black Power raised fist salute on it.

Colston, a merchant, philanthropist, and former MP for Bristol, born in the 1600s, who was once renowned for his charitable giving, had his statue torn down by a mob over his business links to the slave trade shortly after the Black Lives Matter movement spread from the United States to the United Kingdom, while police looked on.

Quinn’s statue, installed in secret at around 5 a.m. in the morning, was not left up as a fait accompli, as he and Reid may have hoped, but removed by workmen and loaded into a skip 25 hours later — prompting the abuse towards Mayor Rees. …

The “Deadly” Hydroxychloroquine Publishing Scandal

July 1, 2020

by Elizabeth Woodworth, OffGuardian

As the COVID – 19 pandemic continues to dominate the news and defy the efforts of researchers to understand its many mysteries, including its origins and why it affects people who contract the virus in wildly different ways, one thing we have learned for certain so far is the extent to which the Pharmaceuticals manufacturers cartel (colloquially Big Pharma,) exercise a pernicious influence over medical research and healthcare. Cast you minds back to early in the pandemic and one of the pronouncements of President Trump on the disease. The Donald recommended as a preventative daily doses of cofveve, a drug with the tongue torturing title Hydroxychloroquine and speculated that it might also provide a cure.

Mainstream media went into meltdown: how dare a politician with no qualifications offer his opinion on medical matters, use of the anti-malarial drug Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to treat Covid 19 would be totally irresponsible it had been shown to have very serious, possibly fatal side effects and there was no proof it worked to alleviate cases of COVID-19, to start prescribing it wholesale could kill more than  it cured. All of which, apart from the last bit about killing more than it cured is true … or at lest partly true.

The whole truth is that the drug, like many commonly used drugs, does have side effects that make it unsafe for some people but has also been around for a long time and those side effects and the previous or pre – existing conditions that make it unsafe for some people are well known.  Known commonly as quinine and chloroquine, it is on the WHO list of essential medicines. And yet the WHO was among those establishment organisations briefing against quinine as a treatment for COVID – 19organisations

Brought to Europe by Roman Catholic missionaries in the 17th century the drug, first known as The Jesuit’s Bark. is derived from bark of the South American quina-quina tree and has been used to treat malaria for 400 years. Quinine, a generic drug costing pennies a dose in rare cases it can cause dizziness and irregular heartbeat, but can be purchased online and therin lies the problem. However, had the medical professions which are in the pockets of Big Pharma which collectively saw the pandemic as an opportunity to redistribute wealth via the tax system from the peoples’ pockets into their own overflowing coffers, and the bulk of the media which simply saw an opportunity to attack Donald Trump.

Convenient Lies and Inconvenient Truths

The two leading medical journals in the economically developed world are UK publication The Lancet and USA’s New England Journal of Medicine

In May, 2020,  a report credited to four authors and claiming that HCQ used in hospitals to treat Covid-19 had been shown conclusively to be a high risk for patients with  for heart conditions and could easily cause  premature death. The data allegedly covered 96,000 patients in 671 hospitals on six continents.

At the height of the campaign of fear and panic about COVID – 19 the article remained in the headlines for two weeks, as scientific objections, contradictory evidence and accusations of bad practice emerged, then on June 5 three of the authors retracted it.

While the controversy raged, covered with the usual pro = establishment bias by the media, a clandestine meeting involving senior staff from The Lancet and NEJM held sometime in May was leaked to journalists in France. The Lancet and NEJM editors also discussed how financially powerful pharmaceutical players were “criminally” corrupting medical science to advance their interests.

At that meeting the gathered experts discussed the pandemic and the their suspicions about the reliability of the damning report on HCQ. Comments regarding the Lancet article were leaked to the French press by a well-known health figure, Dr. Philippe Douste-Blazy, who felt compelled to blow the whistle.

The Fear And Panic Effect

On May 22, 2020, the Lancet had published the stunning claim that 671 hospitals on six continents were reporting life-threatening heart rhythms in patients taking hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for Covid-19.   Although increased use of the drug as a treatment for the Wuhan Coronavirus had been requested in a petition signed by nearly 500,000 French doctors and citizens, the WHO and other health agencies responded to the article by immediately suspending the clinical trials that may have cleared it for use on Wuhan Coronavirus patients.

Headlines in the American media decided not to mention that HCQ was none other than quinine, the time honoured treatment for malaria which is not simply cleaded from general use under medical supervision but has been on the WHO list of essential drugs since that list was launched in 1977. Nor did they mention that the bad press hydroxychloroquine had been getting prior to May 22 was influenced by organisations which had financial interests in persuading governments and health agencies to favour the new, more expensive drug, Remdesivir.  as an investigative report published on May 21st revealed

More COVID Statistics And Lies

As someone who has a qualification in statistics, not a degree but earned long before degree level qualifications were about as commonplace as confetti at a wedding, I have long understood that far from being a science, the study of statistics is more akin to a branch of the dark arts, I am well placed to see how statistics are being presented in ways intended to convey a false impression of what data really means. As the saying goes, I can make statistics tell me anything except the truth.

Health statistics are no exception. Developed to serve different purposes in different contexts, causing them to exist in isolated data bubbles, for example in a previous article I described how the UK’s method for recording death statistics had been deliberately manipulated to ensure each from coronavirus, with coronavirus or simply coronavirus >realted, had been counted several times. Prior to the pandemic any death, whether it occurred in hospital, at home or in a public place or place of work had to first be certified by a doctor and then notified, along with personal details of the deceased to the nearest Registrar of Births, Marriages and Deaths office. Once the details had been verified they were forwarded to the National Statistics Office to ensure each death was only counted once.

Ostensibly to make life easier in the pandemic, certification by a medical professional was no longer required, death statistics were to be collaged by hospitals, medical practices and funeral directors as well as the National Statistics Office and numbers of reported from causes related to the pandemic were based on the numbers ‘reported’ on any given day by all sources. It has been confirmed that similar practices were in operation in Italy, resulting in inflated figures, while Germany, where the medical professions refused to deviate from their reliable and safe method to anything like the chaotic data gathering procedures used in UK, has throughout the pandemic reported much lower kill rates for the virus.

Another thing that jumped out at me as I read of the fraudulent attempt to discredit the efficacy of quinine in this crisis was how could 671 hospitals worldwide, including some of the most backward nations of Asia and Africa, report comparable treatment outcomes for 96,000 COVID patients so quickly? These things usually take years to organise

The Lancet is a leading authority on public health policy and must surely suspected have found the alacrity with which this major study was completed somewhat suspect. Its editor-in-chief, Dr. Richard Horton, has been in his job since 1995 so cannot be accused of lacking experience in the ways Big Pharma have manipulated information in trials and studies..

There were huge question marks over the ease with which claims from various sources casting doubt on the usefulness of HCQ in treating COVID – 19 were so readily accepted? There were, but they were not being asked by politicians who are tasked with defending our interests, academics whose job description includes scrutinizing new work and questioning its authors on any apparent weakness or errors.

Throughout the pandemic, since the virus reached the USA and Europe the only serious questioning of ‘the science’ has occurred in alternative media, for example in this article.

The Empirical Evidence Strikes Back

The benchmark for verification of scientific research has always been the ‘peer review’ process and though this is largely dicredited after it wass revealed that the pcrocess had been preverted by corporate money since the days colleagues in the same field operated a kind of honour system and could be relied on to provide an honest and impartial review of research projects presented to them. Now peer review is pal review in which a sympathetic colleague wil provide a favourable review in return for ‘hospitality’, the guarantee of career enhancing opportunities or a direct cash bung.

In the case of the unfavourable HCQ study an open letter from 200 scientists to the authors and The Lancet asked for the study’s data to be made available for independent audit. The letter was signed by clinicians, medical researchers, statisticians, and ethicists, (full text here.)

In a move reminiscent of Mike (Hockey Stick) Mann, the now discredited climatologist whose ‘hockey Stick Graph kicked off the climate change scare, the HCQ report authors refused to reveal their data, or even the names of hospitals they claimed had taken part in their study. 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 because of links to HCQ’s rival drug, Remdesivir:

Dr. Mandeep Mehra, the lead co-author is a director at Brigham & Women’s Hospital, co funder of the study according to its own press department.

Dr. Mehra and The Lancet failed to disclose that Brigham Hospital has a partnership with drug manufacturer Gilead and is currently conducting two trials on Remdesivir, the prime competitor of hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of COVID-19, the focus of the study.”

How did this fraud get accepted for publication by The Lancet? you might well ask.

The answer emerges from a French television interview, although it has been quoted in the alternative media.

On May 24, a closed-door Chatham House expert meeting (sic) 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 doctore and medical pundit, Dr. Philippe Douste-Blazy,[xvii] who felt compelled to blow the whistle.

His resulting BFM TV television appearance was posted to YouTube with English subtitles on May 31, but the potentially sensational story was not picked up by the mainstream media in the anglosphere.

****************************************************

Lancet editor Dr. Richard Horton, quoted by Dr. Douste-Blazy said:
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 and the editor in chief of the New England Journal of Medicine agreed. He even said it was ‘criminal’. 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 in pursuit of profit or power 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

May 27, 2020

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.
