COVID Another Example of Fake News vs. The Truth – Will This Ever End?

This year-long (so far) “COVID” scam, and the propaganda and fear-mongering, are really getting to me now. This had better end soon.

I’m sure that most people don’t want to think that their government officials are lying to them. But they are, most of the time, that’s just a fact. That includes “public health” officials and “experts,” governors, mayors.

And then there are the public and the mainstream news consumers, in which many people believe what the “authorities” and “news” media tell them, without any challenging or critical thinking.

Just look at how all things COVID have quickly changed the instant Joe Biden was sworn in as Puppet-in-Chief.

There have already been many reasons why we can believe that the COVID-19 “pandemic” has really been a scamdemic. It’s been a total scam, and I hope that the criminals who have inflicted so much damage on our society will eventually do jail time. Please, please, please. There has to be justice at some point.

For a year people have been terrified and panicking over a virus that has a survival rate of 99.9%, literally. I’ve never seen anything like all this.

The first dishonest and untruthful thing was, in March the CDC changed its guidelines as to what constitutes a “COVID” death, by including non-COVID deaths as “COVID deaths.” To up the numbers. So really they have been committing fraud here.

For example, if someone died of heart disease or kidney disease, etc., but happened to test “positive” for COVID-19 (or really for a coronavirus in general!), then that patient is classified as a “COVID death.” Dr. Birx confirmed that. We know that many of the testing is flawed so there are well over 50% false positive results, as well as false negative results.

So we can safely conclude that the 400,000 COVID deaths figure is totally bogus. In fact, the CDC has stated in its COVID “Comorbidities” section that the real figure is only 6% of that 400,000 (or whatever the actual number might be at the end of this, if it ever does end).

But do the media report any of those facts? Of course not. They are beholden to the pharmaceutical industry, who are important sponsors for many “news” media outlets.

Long gone are the days when reporters would do their own independent investigative research, and actually ask officials challenging questions.

But now we have further reason to not believe the scam.

The latest revelation came from the World Health (sic) Organization. Just hours after Joe Biden’s inauguration, the WHO admitted that higher Cycle Threshold (CT) numbers for the COVID PCR tests cause more false positives.

And if one were honest, which bureaucrats are not, that would be by analyzing test results with the CTs at the lower numbers to attempt to weed out false positives.

As Zero Hedge reports (includes a lot of useful information that we haven’t been getting from mainstream “news”),

As a reminder, “cycle thresholds” (Ct) are the level at which widely used polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test can detect a sample of the COVID-19 virus. The higher the number of cycles, the lower the amount of viral load in the sample; the lower the cycles, the more prevalent the virus was in the original sample.

Medical professionals testing for COVID in people have been measuring for viral load at too high a Cycle Threshold, and thus causing many false positives. Zero Hedge links to a NY Times article stating that the rate of false positives may have been as much as 90%. And many “public health” officials know about this, apparently, including the notorious Dr. Fauci, according to that Zero Hedge article.

Even more evidence that this whole thing is a scam is that there was not a significantly higher number of average deaths for the year 2020 in the U.S. than previous years. If COVID had killed 400,000 by the end of 2020, then wouldn’t the figure for U.S. deaths have been at least 400,000 more than the figure for 2019, 2018, etc.? That was according to an article (Wayback Machine archive) that appeared on Johns Hopkins, but was then taken down when the conclusions of the article were made known to an already skeptical crowd! The JH article noted how at the same time in the year 2020 recorded deaths for other illnesses declined significantly, such as heart disease, etc. (even though the incidences of such deaths did not decline, apparently).

And another item we never hear about (for some reason), is that asymptomatic “carriers” do not spread the COVID virus, according to the World Health (sic) Organization. The WHO epidemiologist stated that they did “very detailed contact tracing” of asymptomatic carriers in several countries and they found that incidence of COVID spreading from those asymptomatic carriers was “very rare.”

The notorious Dr. Fauci angrily responded by saying there was “no evidence” for that assertion. However, when researchers do “very detailed contact tracing” and find what they found, that’s called “evidence,” Dr. Fauci. Am I wrong about that?

And there are problems with the experimental vaccines they rushed to the guinea pig public. Again, there is no reason for most people to worry about this “virus,” with an infection fatality rate of about a tenth of one percent. The people who have actually been dying are people mainly elderly who were already very sick fighting a serious illness and who thus died of their already existing very serious illness.

And now the new vaccines are killing people. Have you heard about this in the “news”? Nope.

Recent important articles on the COVID vaccine problems: (Must Read/View) The Future of Vaccines (CorbettReport.com), and What Vaccine Trials? (Off-Guardian.org)

Other important articles on the vaccines:

Many Reports of People Becoming Seriously Ill After Vaccine (ArmstrongEconomics.com), CDC Stops Reporting on Experimental COVID mRNA Injection Side Effects and Experimental mRNA Vaccine Is Not a Vaccine, It Is a Medical Device (HealthImpactNews.com), Hank Aaron Dies 18 Days After COVID Vaccine (ChildrensHealthDefense.org), Nursing Home Had Zero Coronavirus until After COVID Vaccinations Began (RonPaulInstitute.org), California Health Care Worker Dies After Receiving COVID Vaccine and Alarming Number of US Health Care Workers Refusing COVID Vaccine (NYPost.com), and 55 Americans Have Died Following COVID Vaccine, Norway Deaths Rise (ZeroHedge.com)

So I am more worried about my 87-year-old mother getting the vaccine than I am worried about her getting “COVID.” She says she can’t wait to get the vaccine, for which she has an appointment in February. She’s in good health. But she watches too much TV all day, and gets mainly mainstream news, i.e. propaganda and fear-mongering. No matter what I’ve said about the actual facts and articles I’ve emailed to her, she prefers to believe the official narrative from “public health” and other government bureaucrats and from her vaccine-sponsored mainstream “news” media.

And the mask narrative. Even in these days after the WHO admitted that the PCR testing has been using too high a Cycle Threshold, and thus many avoidable false positives and thus the bogus COVID case totals and death totals, the mask-pushers are still pushing the damn masks!

Now “Dr.” Fauci is saying to wear two masks rather than one, because he is finally admitting after a year of this that the masks don’t prevent the transmission of viruses (that he had actually claimed previous to the escalation of the $cam). But he is either ignorant of the health problems caused by the masks, or he knows about them but is an extremely dishonest and corrupt bureaucrat criminal.

I think this mask thing is a cult now. The Mask Cult. Are you one of them? A True Believer?

There had been an uptick in “cases” in the October-November period, and I think it has to do with this masks making people sick, from bacteria accumulation, and oxygen deprivation. If so many people had been wearing the masks all year in 2020, why the alleged COVID uptick?

And the kids. Making the kids wear these damn masks is child abuse, in my opinion. Kids lungs are too under-developed to have to withstand oxygen deprivation and breathing in mask-accumulated bacteria and breathing in their own lung-expelled waste and toxins. It is also psychological abuse as well.

So, I think the masks are making people sick, in addition to the panic and fear that our government bureaucrats are eliciting in people for a year. That’s what I think.
More information on the masks: 20 reasons Mandatory Face Masks Are Unsafe, Ineffective, and Immoral (LewRockwell.com) Coronavirus mask guidance is endangering US health care workers, experts say (TheGuardian.com), COVID-19 prompts Stanford engineers to rethink the humble face mask (Stanford.edu).

And now authoritarian Biden imposes fascist mask mandates, out of ignorance and out of this power-mad compulsion to rule over a Cult, the COVID Cult, The Branch Covidians. Neighbors are hysterical and reporting on others sans masks, as the deranged rulers have sicced a Mask Stasi on innocent people.

Anyway, this week one of those Sunday news crap talk shows interviewed the new CDC director, “Dr.” Rochelle Walensky, who trained at Johns Hopkins Hospital which is heavily funded by big vaccine activist Michael Bloomberg. So like Fauci, she says that we have to “contain the virus.” What? “Contain a virus” whose infection has a 99.9% survival rate? (Does she know that?) What needs to be “contained,” when we know that this whole ordeal is a made-up fiasco?

Does Walensky really know the truth but is just playing along with the official narrative because, well just…$$$…because?

Panic and fear cause people a lot of STRESS, and stress contributes to inflammation, including in our respiratory system. So as the weather gets colder and more people are more lacking in “sunshine vitamin D,” people have symptoms of colds or flu brought on by stress, and they are TERRIFIED that it might be the “deadly COVID” (that has a survival rate of 99.9%, have I mentioned that?), so in fear and panic they rush to the hospital emergency room, and so on. They are tested with bogus testing kits and given a false diagnosis of “COVID,” when they have a cold or flu or respiratory inflammatory issues as a result of stress, panic and fear. That’s what I think.

So, these people in charge are terrible, horrible people. They are criminals. Putting everyone through such anguish and panic for a year now, and continuing, and mainly for political purposes.

A rise in depression, alcoholism, suicide, all caused by forced stay-in orders, lockdowns, business closures and higher unemployment.

Propagandists, please stop LYING to the people by saying those societal crises are “because of COVID”! They are NOT caused by COVID, they are caused by bureaucrats’ fascist lockdowns, forced business closures, and house-arrest stay-in orders, damn it!

That’s the real crisis here, fascism. Not “COVID.”

Democrats and Republicans. Don’t believe them, their fear-mongering and hysteria. And don’t believe the “news.” They are beholden to the pharmaceutical industry, the vaccine makers who have freed themselves from most legal liability from vaccine injuries and deaths via Congressional legislation in 1986-1987 and 2011.

It is very distressing when all this information I am getting on “alternative media” that is actual, real information constantly contradicts the FAKE news I am getting every time I turn on my local “all-news” radio station or look at the local newspaper. It’s like two different worlds, truth vs. fake. And worse, the Big Tech powers-that-be are censoring the truth and labeling it “misinformation,” while THEY are endorsing actual misinformation! It’s really an Alfred Hitchcock movie, and it sucks.

So, the whole system is totally corrupt now. I really hope this cultism of mask, anti-social distancing, fascists unconstitutionally ordering businesses closed without due process, and general otherwise craziness comes to a halt, ASAP.

I Don’t Believe the Official Narrative on COVID. Do You?

We are no doubt in an Alfred Hitchcock movie, or the Twilight Zone, as I have already noted. COVID and other politicized issues are a part of the zombie cult now, in my opinion.

If you get your news from mainstream media sources, such as CBS, ABC, CNN, etc., or from Big Social Media such as Facebook or Twitter, then you really ought to consider doing your own independent research. Those Blob media are all fixated on the official narrative, whether it’s Russia collusions, denial of election fraud, and especially the COVID-19 official narrative. I don’t believe the official narrative, how about you?

But the media have been driving a lot of panic and hysteria with COVID, that is for sure. We’re talking about a virus with a survival rate of 99.9% for most people who have the virus. For age 70+ it’s 94.6%.

In fact at least half of the people who have the virus don’t even have any symptoms! If people do have symptoms, for most of them they are not serious symptoms, and even for those who have to go to the hospital, MOST recover! The infection fatality rate is .1 to .2%, close to that of seasonal influenza.

And why do “public health” officials, and their media plagiarists, continue to talk about increases in “cases” when they are talking about people with positive test results for COVID, regardless of whether anyone is actually sick and has no symptoms? In the past a “case” was someone who was sick. But no longer, apparently.

Further, the test results are from unreliable PCR tests, which have been shown to have very high false positive (and false negative) rates, and are thus useless. Are government and media intentionally trying to incite panic and hysteria? Or are they just dumb, ignorant and clueless?

And why don’t the media check the “facts” that officials give out? Do the journalism schools now discourage actual investigative research?

And there are questions that are not being asked about these fascist, counter-productive lockdowns and mask mandates as well. It seems to be that we now have a mindless, zombie COVID cult now. People are acting like they are in a brainwashed cult and don’t think for themselves. I know that’s nothing new, thanks to the damage the public schools and psychiatric drugs have done to young people for decades.

And now the masks are giving the wearers who-knows-what in the lung area and cognitive area, given that the masks cause oxygen deprivation among other issues. (If you google that you better try DuckDuckGo or Start Page, because Google and the social media companies are censoring anything that doesn’t repeat the official narrative.)

And has anyone actually demanded scientific proof of the “new COVID variant” mutation that’s causing London to have Lockdown 2.0? (Perhaps Boris Johnson is the mutant?)

In London, it’s the ignoramus Boris, his fascist diktats and his idiocy, and law enforcers who are wrecking the economy and society, not some damn virus.

In fact, just today I have come across a new article that questions the official narrative of “new COVID strain that is 70% more transmissible” based on “another flawed data model from Imperial College.” But please, Boris, continue your fascist idiocy, regardless.

Actually, another issue is that news reporters and editors are constantly saying that COVID or “The Pandemic” is “wrecking the economy,” or is “putting people out of work,” when, no, the bureaucRATS and their stay-in orders, business-shutting orders and other fascist decrees are what are wrecking the economy and putting people out of work!

By the way, a great classic to read on Big Government exploitation of crises and panic is Crisis and Leviathan by Robert Higgs. I very much recommend that book. But I digress.

Here in the U.S. people are starting to fight back, however. Businesses are staying open in defiance of the fascists, not in defiance of the LAW, mind you, just the fascists and their unlawful, illegal, and unconstitutional orders! And good for the disobedient rebels! They have a right to stay open, they have a right to make a living, and they are the owners of their businesses, not the government! Your business being open is not a threat to anyone. How absurd! Why are the people in charge of the government in various states and cities so dumb? (Unless they know what they are doing, and it’s intentional. Then, sure I understand now. But I hope that’s not the case.) And you the business owner are not a threat to anyone, unless you have a restraining order against you, or if you have been selling liquor to minors, etc., according to Peggy Hall. (I saw that video on another blog, and I think she’s terrific!)

Some more questions to ask include, Why has our crazy society been wearing masks and “socially distancing” all these months since March or April, but there are people supposedly STILL getting COVID-19? Why is there allegedly a “surge” or a “2nd wave” now, if most of the population have been wearing those damn masks? The masks are supposed to PREVENT that!! (he exclaimed facetiously) Does anyone ever ask those questions? I’ve already read of studies now showing that people claiming to “always” wear the masks or face coverings are still getting COVID! The truth is, only the N95 masks prevent transmission of viruses. The other kinds of face coverings don’t.

Not to mention the horrible psychological effects all this crap is having on people, especially children. Not just the masks, but the stay-inside orders as well are not only harming the children psychologically, but harming their immune systems. People have to stop listening to idiots like Gavin Newsom, Andrew Cuomo and Charlie Baker, and the other dictocrat morons.

And are the hospitals really “overwhelmed” and “up to capacity”? Not according to this article. Are hospital officials and “doctors” liars? Are the media distorting the reality in their reports, like they are with COVID in general? Hospitals are overwhelmed every flu season!

One problem — and it’s a PROBLEM! — is that the government and media have been exaggerating this cold/flu/COVID, the CDC has been inflating the numbers, “cases” is redefined, and propaganda is driving hysteria and panic and people are scared to death that they will get the equivalent to the Plague or Ebola and will die. The STRESS of such fear and panic causes people to get SICK! Stress contributes to inflammation, so a cold or flu’s respiratory symptoms get worsened. Add COVID false positives to the mix. Good luck, everybody!

And that’s another thing, what happened to the seasonal flu now? I suspect that because of the overinflated COVID numbers and false positives throughout the system, that many people have the flu but have falsely tested “positive” for COVID, so CDC has been counting many flu (or even bad colds!) cases as “COVID.” So that is what I suspect about that.

And why is everything now all about vaccines? Government and Big Pharma are rushing vaccines without the required testing, which takes years. The FDA gave an “emergency use authorization” but not formal approval of these vaccines. And the process of that “emergency use authorization” was totally corrupt. I can’t believe the number of articles I’ve seen now that give us reasons to say NO to these vaccines! We live in a vaccine-worship cult now. The simple-minded obsession with vaccines is unbecoming of a developed society, in my opinion.

And while the main people who have been dying of COVID supposedly, are very sick elderly people, other groups of people are the obese, and those with already serious, life-debilitating illnesses or conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, etc. It’s probably insensitive of me, but perhaps people should take better care of themselves? Like, preventing oneself from being obese? And that is under the control of most people who are obese, quite frankly. You can do it.

People who are very sick elderly people, however, need better care in the nursing homes. It would help if hospital or nursing home workers were not incompetent. It would help if doctors were not making people worse off with their overuse of the ventilators as well. I had already mentioned the ventilators as one major contributor to many of the so-called “COVID” deaths now.

And why don’t our officials and the media emphasize the importance of nutrition for prevention of these illnesses, and for prevention or treatment of COVID? I’ve already posted about COVID and vitamin D deficiency, with several studies showing COVID patients to be deficient in vitamin D. Being outdoors and in the sun stimulates your vitamin D, so this time of year people are getting less of their vitamin D absorbed. Vitamin D boosts your immune system (certainly in a more healthy way than a damn vaccine!). And also vitamin D has been shown to reduce respiratory inflammation, which is a symptom of COVID-19, colds and flu.

Why don’t the “doctors” and health “experts” suggest that people take supplemental vitamin D? Not just vitamin D, but zinc, magnesium and vitamin C as well, are important for the immune system and to reduce inflammation.

But no, the world is obsessed with vaccines, regardless of how ineffective they are, or possibly harmful. The masses believe the witch doctors and Big Pharma propaganda, but not actual science and reason. And I think that what we have here with vaccine superstition is a part of the larger cult of establishment medicine.

So, I don’t believe the official narrative on these issues, and the “news” media are zombies, in my opinion.

Wake Up and Question the COVID Narrative

Well, in my previous post I tried to offer a summary of how the COVID “crisis” has been extremely overblown and how government bureaucrats have been outright lying about the coronavirus “cases” and the death numbers as a means to further terrify the population into compliance of even more draconian policies and to seize more power and control over us. And I of course included my own bit of sarcasm and cynicism in that post. However, the post doesn’t seem to have gotten very many views.

So perhaps you might enjoy this article by holistic psychiatrist Kelly Brogan, MD, that gives a lot of good information on what the government “public health” bureaucrats are doing to us as far as imposing counter-productive and in fact idiotic policies to “fight COVID.” Dr. Brogan also goes into the psychological aspects underlying the “global Stockholm Syndrome,” in which the masses do not seem very capable of dealing with their traumas and instead find comfort in compliance with authorities diktats. And Dr. Brogan also gets into the effects of propaganda.

Dr. Brogan concludes by linking to QuestioningCovid.com, which has many videos of doctors and other analysts debunking many myths about the face masks, as well as questioning germ theory, questioning government and special interest agendas, questioning what COVID represents psychospiritually, and also videos with whistleblower testimony.

So I hope you find all that informative and helpful. Sadly, you will not find any useful information from the mainstream media, not from the New York Times, Washington Post, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN and all those kinds of propagandists. I think they have outlived their usefulness, and are now just obedient government press releasers.

From the mainstream media you will get government-issued lies and psy-ops (i.e. “psychological operations,” which is a term mainly describing military psychological manipulation of the enemy in times of war). The truth and reality are important, so I hope that these alternative sources can remain online before the censors get them.

The Truth About COVID-19

As we continue to struggle our way through this months-long Alfred Hitchcock movie, I can see why some people are calling it a “scamdemic.”

There is no reason to believe a word our government “leaders” have been saying about COVID-19. They are liars, and it is best to just assume the old adage, “How do you know when a politician is lying? When his lips are moving.”

The CDC is lying about the death numbers, state “public health” officials are lying about infections and “cases,” as well as deaths. They are also hypocrites, saying that “protesters” can gather by the thousands all jam-packed and yell and scream, but church-goers can’t gather at a church and sing their songs.

Fascist business closures, lockdowns, government-imposed financial collapse and high unemployment, canceling concerts, sporting events, canceling school, and fascist mandates to wear potentially harmful face masks, turning our neighbors and coworkers into “social distance” informants and face mask stasi.

There are states that are now imposing travel restrictions, requiring travelers from other states, or returning, to quarantine themselves for 14 days, fill out a form and/or provide proof they’ve tested negative of COVID within 72 hours of their arrival.

Nazi New York is setting up COVID checkpoints at bridges and tunnels. The travel gestapo will make travelers fill out intrusive health forms or pay a $2,000 fine if they refuse. If people don’t self-quarantine they will have to pay a $10,000 fine.

In Australia police are smashing car windows of non-maskers and pulling them out at checkpoints, and assaulting people not giving their personal private details or names and addresses.

Are these fascist morons going to put up a “Berlin Wall,” too? They are freaking NUTS, these people. And there’s NO reason for any of this!

I want to say, “Something smells rotten in Denmark,” but because Denmark appears to be doing well after letting kids back in school, I can’t say that.

But, things are smelling very rotten in the “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave,” that’s for sure.

Well we know America is not as free as it was last February before all this fascism, and we certainly can’t say it is “brave,” with all the propagandized and frightened little sheep running away from others sans mask or fearing going back to work after house arrest for months.

This is like nothing I’ve seen in my nearly 60 years, and it’s a total scam. But why?

Based on what I’ve learned, here are some of the main points.

Most of the people who have died of supposedly COVID-19 have been very sick elderly people in nursing homes. Average age is about 80. Others who have died include those with preexisting conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and so on. Those are the vulnerable people who should be protected.

But most of the people who have the virus are asymptomatic, and among those who have symptoms, the symptoms are very mild, flu-like or cold-like symptoms. And even more important, at least to me, was the W.H.O. epidemiologist who said that they did detailed contact tracing of asymptomatic carriers, in several countries, and they found that spreading of infection by asymptomatic carriers of the virus was very rare.

That means there’s no reason for everyone to wear a mask, “socially distance,” cancel everything, stay indoors and be isolated. In fact, those behaviors and actions probably have been making people worse off, negatively affecting their physical and mental health, certainly worse than COVID-19 affects most people.

And again, if we’re afraid that we are a “carrier” but don’t know it because of being asymptomatic, then given that asymptomatic carriers infecting others is “very rare,” we shouldn’t worry about possibly giving something to someone else, like Grandma or teachers at school.

The “novel” coronavirus that causes COVID-19 is just one coronavirus of many coronavirus. The common cold is often caused by a coronavirus.

And the tests to determine whether someone is positive for a coronavirus are just to get laboratory confirmation of coronavirus, not specifically the COVID-19 disease or the specific coronavirus that causes COVID-19. So when we hear about all the positive confirmed tests for coronavirus, that means that those people have tested positive for ANY coronavirus! There is no test to determine a specific cornavirus, or to determine COVID-19. Therefore, just THAT in and of itself shows that the people in charge are lying to us about this. And the antibodies test determines that you have antibodies in response to any previous coronavirus infection, including the common cold! So THAT’S useless for specific COVID-19 testing.

See this article on the testing that’s for any strain of coronavirus, Dr. Joseph Mercola’s article, Common Cold May Trigger Positive COVID-19 Antibody Test, and this article by Jon Rappoport on the illusion of a pandemic through diagnostic tests, and look through Jon Rappoport’s blog from the tag “PCR” as well for various further information.

Earlier in the “pandemic” when officials referred to “cases,” they were referring to people with symptoms and who tested positive for coronavirus. But now, anyone who tests positive for coronavirus regardless of having symptoms, is a “case” and added to the case numbers.

And there are further problems with the false positives, because the testing is not reliable. Good information from Jon Rappoport here, and he also asks if wearing the face masks contributes to more COVID false positives. This article explains the false positives and false negatives with COVID.

There has also been outright fraud, such as labs throughout Florida (and probably other states!) reporting nearly 100% positive test results, because the labs were ignoring negative results and only reporting the positive results, until a TV news investigative team did some digging. And then there have been those who were told they were positive when they had never been tested.

Worth reiterating: The CDC changed its guidelines on determining what is a “COVID-19 death.” Now regardless of someone dying of heart disease, kidney disease, stroke, motorcycle accident, being shot to death, as long as the victim tested positive with coronavirus that person is listed as a “COVID-19 death.”

See how they’re cheating and artificially inflating the numbers? And hospitals also have a financial incentive to inflate the COVID death numbers.

The bureaucrats are lying about the face masks as well.

Dr. Mercola explains why the masks don’t prevent viral infection.

I have already linked to the article by Dr. Russell Blaylock, who explains how the face masks reduce your oxygen intake and cause excessive carbon dioxide intake.

Doctors at University College London Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care also discuss the health risks of the general public wearing the face masks.

Quebec’s public health director says the masks are too moist in minutes and their barrier against viruses is greatly reduced.

Jon Rappoport presented a study or conclusion of studies showing that the masks do not prevent influenza transmission.

This article on “Orthodox Reflections” gives further information on the masks.

And Robert Wenzel from Target Liberty quotes the WHO, who reveals the push for masks is for psychological and behavioral reasons, i.e. conditioning and control.

And in this article on the New England Journal of Medicine, doctors associated with Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Massachusetts General Hospital state:

“We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”

There is no “settled science” behind the masks, so they should not be mandated!

Given the .1% infection fatality rate of COVID-19, the seasonal flu is just as serious as this COVID-19 (and more so for kids!). But during flu seasons our governors haven’t been intentionally ordering nursing homes to accept influenza-infected patients as they have done with COVID now. And how many people had been unnecessarily put on the deadly ventilators?

Jon Rappoport had posted a reference to the 2018 Time magazine article about hospitals overflowing with flu patients during the 2017-18 flu season. Here is a similar article at Stat. And from the New York Times in 2000.

And, as Jeff Tucker reports, during the 1968-69 “Hong Kong Flu” pandemic that killed 100,000 people in the U.S., there were no forced school or business closures, and bars and restaurants stayed open, the stock market wasn’t crashed down and Congress didn’t pass bailouts, no forced masks or social distancing, no arrests of innocent people for going to a party. Woodstock carried on.

No craziness like now. No Twilight Zone, like now.

But for some reason, COVID-19 is different. Why are “public health” bureaucrats lying and making up numbers? Why the fear-mongering? Why such fascist policies? How un-American. And why have the “news” media been going along with it?

(Update: Since posting this, I have changed the title. No other changes.)

Herman Cain and COVID-19, Vitamin D, and the Ventilators

Herman Cain was the black entrepreneur businessman who ran for president in 2012 with the slogan, “9-9-9,” which called for keeping income taxes and business taxes and imposing an awful, regressive national sales tax. Of course I disagreed with all that, and I agreed with Ron Paul at the time, who countered with “0-0-0”!

Anyway, Cain died this past week at age 74 supposedly of COVID-19. Cain had previously had stage 4 colon cancer that spread to his liver, from which he had recovered.

Some people who are obsessed with the social control agenda that goes along with the ongoing COVID fiasco, are concluding that Cain died because he attended a Trump rally and didn’t wear a mask. This is absurd, as he had been many places during that time including Arizona and could have gotten the coronavirus anywhere.

Actually, I think Cain died more because of vitamin D deficiency and I also think that his being on the ventilator made him worse off. Here is why I think those things.

First, as I wrote in this post in June, black people have been found to be vitamin D deficient, more than people of other races. And other studies have shown that a higher proportion of people who died of COVID-19 were vitamin D deficient.

Vitamin D is important for the immune system and it also specifically has natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory properties. That means vitamin D can aid in clearing up not only nasal congestion (and that has been my personal experience, by the way) but more serious issues of fluid and inflammation in the lungs, which can occur in COVID-19 patients.

As I quoted in that earlier post from this study, “Vitamin D appears capable of inhibiting pulmonary inflammatory responses while enhancing innate defence mechanisms against respiratory pathogens.”

And I also quoted from a study on the NIH website: “Blacks and Hispanics consistently manifest lower serum concentrations of 25(OH)D than non-Hispanic whites [8–12], primarily because increased skin pigmentation inhibits cutaneous synthesis of cholecalciferol, the metabolic precursor to 25(OH)D [13]. This has led many investigators to conclude that blacks and Hispanics are at higher risk of vitamin D deficiency than whites [8–12], and as a result, may also have increased risk of developing associated chronic disease conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and cancer [14, 15].”

Now, it’s possible that Herman Cain had been taking vitamins including vitamin D, but I think that most people don’t take vitamin D, even though most people are probably vitamin D deficient, especially during the Winter months.

I say, shame-shame on the ruling medical establishment who rarely if ever emphasize the importance of nutrition in prevention or treatment of serious medical conditions or diseases, and the same goes for the mainstream news media who merely repeat what government bureaucrats and “public health” authorities tell them.

So besides the high probability of Herman Cain’s being vitamin D deficient which may have contributed to his difficult time with COVID-19, I think that his being put on a ventilator may also have contributed to his death.

According to the NY Post, “Cain spent nearly a month on a ventilator in an Atlanta hospital. In an update earlier this week, his family described a ‘long and slow process’ to recovery.”

“Long and slow,” thanks to the ventilator, that is. A previous article on NY Post pointed out a death rate of almost 90% of those COVID patients who were put on a ventilator. Which means that you are probably better off getting some alternative treatment, not a ventilator.

According to the NIH, which I quoted before,

One of the most serious and common risks of being on a ventilator is pneumonia. The breathing tube makes it hard for you to cough. Coughing helps clear your airways of germs that can cause infections. The breathing tube that is put into your airway can allow bacteria to enter your lungs. As a result, you may develop pneumonia.

Pneumonia is a major concern because people using ventilators are often already very sick. Pneumonia may make it harder to treat your other disease or condition. You may need special antibiotics, as the bacteria that caused your pneumonia could be resistant to standard antibiotics.

Another risk of being on a ventilator is a sinus infection. This type of infection is more common in people who have endotracheal tubes. Sinus infections are treated with antibiotics.

Using a ventilator can put you at risk for other problems, such as:

  • Atelectasis, a condition in which the lung does not expand fully. This causes the air sacs to collapse.
  • Blood clots. When using a ventilator, you may need to stay in bed or use a wheelchair. Staying in one position for long periods can raise your risk of blood clots and serious skin infections.
  • Fluid buildup in the air sacs inside your lungs, which are usually filled with air. This is called pulmonary edema.
  • Lung damage. Pushing too much air into the lungs or with too much pressure can harm your lungs. Too much oxygen can also damage your lungs. Babies put on a ventilator may be at a higher risk of lung infections or persistent lung problems as children and adults.
  • Muscle weakness. Using a ventilator decreases the work your diaphragm and other breathing muscles have to do, so they can become weak. This may lead to some problems and delays in being taken off the machine.
  • Pneumothorax. This is a condition in which air leaks out of the lungs and into the space between the lungs and the chest wall. This can cause pain and shortness of breath. It may cause one or both lungs to collapse.
  • Vocal cord damage. The breathing tube can damage your vocal cords. Tell your doctor if you have trouble speaking or breathing after your breathing tube is removed.

And I thank Jon Rappoport for this post he had in March, for pointing out the information on the ventilators.

Incidentally, that page on the NIH was changed a little since I quoted from it in April. In the earlier version of that page, the page referred to “ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP),” but in the current, edited version it’s just referred to as “pneumonia.”

But it sounds to me that Herman Cain had a higher risk of vitamin D deficiency because of his darker skin color, which may have contributed to his succumbing to COVID-19, and the fact that he was on the ventilator was probably not helpful.

I think a lot of illnesses and deaths can be prevented if only our supposedly modern and advanced society would emphasize the importance of nutrition.

More Information on the Unnecessary, Unconstitutional and Harmful Mask Mandates

I have said that I don’t want to write about COVID anymore, because it’s getting very tiring. But the mask stuff, the mandating of wearing a mask, is out of ignorance and hysteria. That’s getting tiring, too.

But I don’t have enough time to write about the masks, their safety or effectiveness. So, here is a very good article on Health Impact News that addressed many issues with the masks, by Jim Meehan, MD, Healthy People Should Not Wear Face Masks.

And on the LewRockwell.com blog, Becky Akers has had several blog posts over the last week or two on the masks, including some experiences and thoughts about the masks from her many correspondents. Here is the blog archive for Becky Akers. She addresses the churches as well, in their obediently complying with the government’s totalitarian edicts to stay closed, or everyone wear masks and stay 6 feet apart.

With COVID Hysteria, “Something Is Rotten in the State of Denmark.”

How long is this COVID situation going to last? And the government-ordered shutdown of businesses and job-losses?

Those “public servants,” ordering the people to close down and stay at home, are causing an economic collapse and devastation all over the country. All the increased impoverishment, despair, and now hunger with long lines at the food banks, will cause many more illnesses and deaths than whatever number of COVID-19 deaths that may have been prevented!

And the media are shameful in their fear-mongering right along with the “public servants” causing such panic and destruction. I was talking to my 86-year-old mother on the phone yesterday and she’s definitely affected by what I consider to be non-stop propaganda on the television. I think she watches too much TV but don’t tell I said that.

The undue panic that government bureaucrats and media have been causing will cause a mental health crisis as well as an economic crisis, if this goes on any longer.

I saw some good recent articles that people should read with more clear information on the COVID panic, including The 5 dubious pillars of the Covid-19 panic narrative on Medium, and Things about COVID-19 that make you go, “Hmmm” on Target Liberty.

So first I have some questions about the manufacturers such as the fashion and apparel companies now making face masks, and Ford, GM and Airbus now making ventilators, which those companies are not used to making.

Will the makers of the face masks be putting the masks through some kind of final inspections to guarantee they are free of contaminants or viruses? And as I saw mentioned on another blog, what exactly are the masks treated with, some kind of chemical decontamination process? That people might be directly breathing in?

And by the way, this article on GreenMedInfo tells us that wearing those face masks might not actually protect you from viruses, and may even be counterproductive. And that’s according to the World Health Organization! So government “public servants” really shouldn’t be making them mandatory!

And the ventilators? Will they be inspected before being sent to the hospitals? (I assume the ones in use now are already inspected!) Will these new ones be checked for possible bacteria?

According to the National Institutes for Health (that Jon Rappoport quotes from in this informative post),

One of the most serious and common risks of being on a ventilator is pneumonia. The breathing tube that’s put in your airway can allow bacteria to enter your lungs. As a result, you may develop ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP).

The breathing tube also makes it hard for you to cough. Coughing helps clear your airways of lung irritants that can cause infections.

VAP is a major concern for people using ventilators because they’re often already very sick. Pneumonia may make it harder to treat their other disease or condition.

VAP is treated with antibiotics. You may need special antibiotics if the VAP is caused by bacteria that are resistant to standard treatment.

Another risk of being on a ventilator is a sinus infection.

Using a ventilator also can put you at risk for other problems, such as:

*Pneumothorax (noo-mo-THOR-aks). This is a condition in which air leaks out of the lungs and into the space between the lungs and the chest wall. This can cause pain and shortness of breath, and it may cause one or both lungs to collapse.
*Lung damage. Pushing air into the lungs with too much pressure can harm the lungs.
*Oxygen toxicity. High levels of oxygen can damage the lungs.These problems may occur because of the forced airflow or high levels of oxygen from the ventilator.

Using a ventilator also can put you at risk for blood clots and serious skin infections. These problems tend to occur in people who have certain diseases and/or who are confined to bed or a wheelchair and must remain in one position for long periods.

Another possible problem is damage to the vocal cords from the breathing tube….

Now, all those possible risks of being on a ventilator. I wonder how many of the “COVID-19” patients, especially in New York, who have been on a ventilator and who died, really may have died of lung damage, oxygen toxicity, or pneumonia as caused by the ventilator itself, in which they wouldn’t have died just from COVID-19 alone. (One New York City ICU doctor has expressed a similar concern.)

In other words, in which the real cause of death was something other than COVID-19.

We now know that the health officials, CDC, etc. are counting as COVID deaths even those deaths that were caused by other illnesses.

Dr. Deborah Birx, one of Trump’s health advisors, has already admitted that they are falsely counting as “COVID deaths” those deaths whose actual cause was the patient’s other preexisting illness, such as heart failure or kidney disease.

Birx stated, according to the Daily Wire: “we are taking a very liberal approach to mortality…If someone dies with COVID-19, we are counting that.” In other words, the person really died of heart failure or kidney disease as the real cause of death, but she says that if the person died “with” COVID-19, they are still counting that as a COVID death. (To intentionally drive up the death count? But why, if so?)

Dr. Birx stated, “There are other countries, that if you have a pre-existing condition, and let’s say the virus called you to go to the ICU (intensive care unit) and then have a heart or kidney problem … Some countries are recording that as a kidney issue, or a heart issue, and not a COVID-19 death.”

The CDC guidelines, which that Daily Wire article also quotes from, states, “COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death …”

In other words, the CDC is promoting fraud in the official U.S. COVID-19 death count!

And that obviously includes whatever extra deaths may have been caused by possibly bacteria-laden ventilators.

This whole thing is suspicious to me. The WHOLE thing. It “doesn’t pass the smell test.”

A Study on the Possible Dangers of Mammograms

In more recent years I have become aware of “Big Cancer” and how the whole cancer industry can go overboard in its zeal to over-screen people, exposing healthy people to needless radiation and/or with harmful drugs unnecessarily and because of false positives or otherwise being unwilling to try less harmful treatments. (In other words, the Big Cancer industry makes the drug companies and hospitals a lot of moolah.)

Sayer Ji of GreenMedInfo has a new article discussing these important issues, the “hidden dangers” of mammograms that people need to know. He discusses the psychosocial consequences of false positives in screening and false diagnoses, and the risks of low-energy X-rays.

My aunt Louise (not her real name) died in 2008 of breast cancer. She had that previously maybe in the early 2000s and she had the usual conventional establishment-medicine treatments, and got rid of it. Then the cancer returned in 2008 and she died, in her late 60s. I don’t know for sure, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she had had regular mammograms leading up to getting the cancer in the early 2000s, because she didn’t drink or smoke or do drugs, and I believe she was even a healthy eater.

UPDATE: Now, this is not to say that one ought not get a screening for breast cancer, especially if one notices an abnormality. I just wanted to clarify this. Perhaps there are alternative kinds of tests to have (such as thermography or ultrasound, for instance)? But, if one has had a screening such as a mammogram screening and has been given the all clear, then it probably isn’t necessary to have a subsequent test after that, especially if you take care of yourself. The problem is the cumulative radiological effects of yearly mammograms or even every 10 years.

Researchers Plant Malware in MRI Equipment to Cause False Diagnoses

I’m going to try to write posts here more often, if I can. There have been quite a lot of interesting stories in the news recently that need to be covered. And I also want to continue to write about my personal experiences, especially in the health area.

In the personal area, I don’t want to over-emphasize the magnesium stuff, but it really has been quite a thing with me for the past maybe 4 years or so. I think I will do a point by point summary of what I’ve learned about magnesium and magnesium supplements over the past few years. And also, I have reviewed my recent major post on my experiences with bad doctors and their bad advice and the bad pharmaceutical drugs during the 2000s, and, well, it may be necessary to add a summary of the main points at the top or at the end of that post, and/or do a separate post summarizing all that. It is quite lengthy and covers a lot of events.

In the meantime, I heard this story on the radio, and it was quite shocking. When googling for it, hardly any news outlets seem to have it, although this one from the trade publication for medical device makers “Mass Device” has it. That article does link to a Washington Post article on the story.

The story is that researchers in Israel tested malware in a hospital to intentionally alter MRI images to get radiologists to misdiagnose a cancer or tumor, either with a false positive or a false negative. And it appears that in many cases, the malware actually did just that.

I have a feeling that news media outlets do not seem to be covering this story because of the questionable ethics involved in the carrying out of the study. But the conclusion that MRI testing is vulnerable to malware and that steps need to be taken to prevent false diagnoses, is an important conclusion to be discussed.
