The Assumption of a Pandemic

The most dangerous ideas in a society are not the ones being argued, but the ones that are assumed. ~C.S. Lewis
In regards to our first worldwide “pandemic”, many are ASSUMING several very big things in their reasoning when they support the official authoritative narrative:
  1. the threat is real, and is caused by what they say it is caused by.
  2. if real and properly identified as the real cause, the threat is as contagious as they say it is, and is spread in the manner they say it is.
  3. if real and properly identified as the real cause, the threat is as deadly as they say it is.
  4. that testing is pointing at the actual cause, and is highly accurate.
  5. the uniform countermeasures and treatments enacted by governments and centralized medical monopolies are scientifically proven as effective against the real cause.
  6. the countermeasures enacted by government are proportionate to the actual threat.
  7. that monopolies such as the government, the CDC, the WHO, the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, etc, are unbiased with nothing to gain financially and/or politically from a pandemic.
  8. actual medicine, such as has been proven to be 90% effective by a French study with hydroxychloroquine, is not being suppressed for financial and/or political reasons.
  9. that the statistics aren’t being manipulated or overstated for financial and/or political gain, and are accurate.
  10. that hospitals treating said patients don’t receive financial incentives for total covid-19 case load, following standardized treatments, and for labeling deaths as a specific cause of death.
As a critical thinking instructor, these are just a few questions that immediately pop into my mind to ask about our core assumptions, but few people are actually asking them. Why are they not being asked?

THE UNITY PROCESS: We’ve created an integrative methodology called the Unity Process, which combines the philosophy of Natural Law, the Trivium Method, Socratic Questioning, Jungian shadow work, and Meridian Tapping—into an easy to use system that allows people to process their emotional upsets, work through trauma, correct poor thinking, discover meaning, set healthy boundaries, refine their viewpoints, and to achieve a positive focus. We practice it together in our groups, and in our individual sessions.

Making Sense of the Madness – Globalist Revelations


I joined John Chambers at Making Sense of the Madness last night to take a look at the Global Criminal Swamp, starting with a TV clip from SkyNews Australia, where Brad Hazzard, the Health Minister of Australia’s most populous state, notorious for its draconian, police-state enforcement of COVID restrictions, claimed that the new place of danger from COVID is now our own homes – and then he had a Freudian slip, when he referred to the “New World Order”, when he meant to say the “New World of COVID”. But the two terms are largely interchangeable.

I’ve been trying to wrap my head around how the Globalists have managed to pull off this massive hoax. During the past 8 months, the people of the world have been broadsided by a highly-coordinated perpetration of fraud and global violations of the law by the very institutions charged with making these laws. The scale and scope of the scamdemic are staggering!

What better place to find clues than on the World Health Organization website, where we see an important term they use: “Stakeholders”, which sheds light on their recruiting methods, in their own words:

“Who are our stakeholders?

“Diverse global health stakeholders engage with WHO.

“We work closely with decision-makers: Ministries of Health, government agencies, other government departments at the national level.

“We also work with influencers: health partnerships, foundations, intragovernmental and nongovernmental organizations,  civil society, media, professional associations, and WHO collaborating centres.

“Our engagement with the United Nations at the global, regional, and country level is also a major asset.”

I think this indicates the recruitment avenues for people like this Brad Buzzard in Australia and a lot of local politicians and local health officials, like Bill DeBlasio in New York City and Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, to name just a few who are propagating this Flu d’État, which is based on a virus that has never been isolated – as admitted by the CDC, itself on page 39 of their “Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel” document, published last July.

As reported yesterday by Jon Rappaport, who has been studying fake pandemics and the manipulation of pandemics for over three decades, he writes, “Buried deep in the document, on page 39, in a section titled, ‘Performance Characteristics,’ it says: ‘Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available, assays designed for detection of the 2019-nCoV RNA were tested with characterized stocks of in vitro transcribed full length RNA…’

“The key phrase there is: ‘Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available…’

“Every object that exists can be quantified, which is to say, measured. The use of the term ‘quantified’ in that phrase means: the CDC has no measurable amount of the virus, because it is unavailable. THE CDC HAS NO VIRUS.

“A further tip-off is the use of the word ‘isolates.’ This means NO ISOLATED VIRUS IS AVAILABLE.




“…And using this test, the CDC and every other public health agency in the world are counting COVID cases and deaths…and governments have instituted lockdowns and economic devastation using those case and death numbers as justification.”

AND THIS brings me to a video that I ran this week that went viral of German lawyer, Reiner Fuellmich who’s been a member of the bar in both Germany and California for 26 years and who discusses the findings of the International Corona Investigative Committee that was formed on July 10, 2020 by lawyers, doctors, and scientists and who jointly reached the conclusion that COVID-19 may be the greatest crime against humanity in history.

Dr Fuellmich, who has successfully litigated against Deutsche Bank and Volkswagen lays out a legal case of Crimes Against Humanity for enforcing lockdowns based on the fraudulent use of PCR test results – which, as we just noted, do not prove the existence of the COVID-19 virus.

He says, “As more and more independent studies and expert statements show, under the rules of Civil Tort law, all those who have been harmed by these PCR test-induced lockdowns are entitled to receive full compensation for their losses.”

Due to the preponderance of evidence, the government will be held responsible for the damages it inflicted upon the population and the crimes committed by various health authorities and the WHO must be legally qualified as actual crimes against humanity, as defined in Section 7 of the International Criminal Code and he suggests that the path forward to compensatory damages and to political consequences is through the Class Action lawsuit.

Which brings me to the many, many US Federal and state laws that are being violated by these COVID actions on the part of local governments, such as Title 18 US Code §1038 about false information and hoaxes, where you go to prison if you provide false information or misleading information relating to biological hazards, with a maximum penalty of life in prison if these frauds result in death – which they have!

Peggy Hall of has been doing amazing work, here, 1) identifying the MANY, MANY Federal and State laws being violated and 2) naming all of the officials who are violating these laws and 3) starting class action lawsuits against them.

The amount of laws being broken right now by the governments that made these laws, in order to perpetrate this false emergency is beyond head-spinning.

She cites two Federal Laws, Title 18 US Code §1038 and  Title 18 US Code §1040, which is Fraud in Connection with Major Disaster or Benefits – which is what’s what’s happening: They’re declaring an emergency, in order to get money, so that’s fraudulent. The penalty for that is 30 years in prison.

Then, she cites several California State Laws, which I’ve been told would be virtually identical to Michigan Laws, since the blueprint of the California legal code was lifted from that of the State of Michigan. However, every state should have their own laws on their books, that are basically the same, so my naming the California ones here can give you clues where to look in the legal code of your own state.

There’s California Penal Code §504, for fraud, when a public officer appropriates and uses any public property or funds fraudulently. So, even if they are using these funds to put up billboards to “stay 6 feet apart” – that is a crime of embezzlement.

California Penal Code §148.3 – is the California statute that makes it a crime for a person to report a false emergency…which is 100% the case, with COVID-19, where they’ve never even isolated the virus and whatever it is has an extremely low death rate of .02%

She also notes that the California Emergency Services Act Article §8630 says, ‘The governing body shall determine the termination of the local health emergency at the earliest possible date that conditions warrant.’

The problem is – there is no emergency, there never has been an emergency, yet they persist in breaking the law, with Bill DeBlasio ordering another lockdown yesterday in several zip codes of Brooklyn and Queens and officials everywhere from the UK to Australia threatening to impose new lockdowns.

Clearly, these lockdown-happy local government officials are working for the UN and not for their constituents.

Some of you may have seen the interview with Chicago Mayor, Lori Lightfoot, talking about how she only works with those who are with the “New World Order.”

Then Susan Bradford comes on with some head-exploding facts, going all the way back to the history of how the Deep State infiltrated the US Government via the Federally-recognized Native American tribes, the intelligence agencies and the insurance companies and how AIG (American International Group, Inc.) is a great example of this.

AIG Founder, Cornelius Vander Starr ingratiated himself to the Rothschilds, who formed and used the MI6 and the OSS, together with insurance agencies – to create not just secret agents but secret insurance agents – to leverage their positions and to always keep them on the best side of every trade, disaster, war – you name it.

Many other mind-blowing details, here – don’t miss it!

The Average American Is Recorded 238 Times A Week

The Average American Is Recorded 238 Times A Week Tyler Durden Thu, 10/08/2020 - 22:50

Authored by Robert Wheeler via The Organic Prepper blog,

Cameras are everywhere...

Do you have a cell phone? Unless it’s an old antiquated flip phone, there’s a camera. Public parks, roadways, the parking garage at your favorite shopping center, police officers wearing body cameras, school…they are everywhere.

There was a time when Americans viewed the presence of security cameras in a private business as a creepy Orwellian intrusion into their private lives. They didn’t want to be recorded and watched as they did their shopping or when they went into the bank to cash their paychecks. Those days came and went and Americans accepted and adapted those cameras.

Then along came public surveillance cameras and traffic light cameras. And, once again people felt their lives were being infringed upon. Not only were private businesses still conducting the surveillance, but the government was now watching too. This left many people feeling as though their privacy rights had been taken away from them.

All that changed when 9/11 happened. Suddenly Americans couldn’t be stopped from stuffing their concerns over privacy as far down the toilet bowl as they could.

Two decades later the “Privacy Train” has left the station.

Everywhere we go, there are cameras. Whether it be a camera in a retail store, at a stoplight, inside a hospital, inside an Uber car, inside a restaurant, possibly even inside your own home. Oh, and let’s not forget the doorbell cameras. like the ones surveilling the entire neighborhood without their consent. If you have a smartphone, it’s tracking everywhere you go and that data is being used to compile incredibly detailed information about you.

Cameras are everywhere…including in our own hands. While the images being posted on social media may just be static images, they are still pictures of someone who may not even know that image was posted.

According to Social Media Statistics 2020: Top Networks by the Number Facebook alone has over 300 million photos uploaded DAILY.

People are not only being recorded, they are recording themselves and one another.

And this may sound like some crazy high-tech thing that doesn’t really affect us personally, but consider the ramifications on OPSEC if your every move is tracked and your every purchase is documented.

You won’t believe how often the typical American is recorded every day.

An article published by the Daily Mail reports that the typical American is recorded by security cameras 238 times a week. The information was obtained from whose security team conducted a study on surveillance technology. That figure includes:

  • Video taken at work: average employee spotted on cameras 40 times per week

  • Video taken on the road: Americans are filmed 160 times while driving

  • Video taken in stores

  • Video taken in homes and neighborhoods: 14 times per week

For Americans who travel a lot or who work in “highly patrolled areas,” the number of times they are recorded on film could reach over 1000 times per week. According to the research, it can be difficult to know how many traffic cameras are passively filming or permanently storing footage. Another result of the study was that people underestimate how often they are recorded.

A survey from IPVM  in 2016 found that most people assumed they were being recorded less than five times a day. The example of a typical day was taken from that report:

This example is a running total, including the number of cameras likely present at each stop:

  • 8:00AM: 4 Cameras – Get a cup of coffee –  4 cameras in Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts

  • 8:30AM: 24 Cameras – School or office – cameras in parking lot and interior, you will be picked up at various angles by 20 cameras at least.

  • 12:15PM: 30 Cameras – Stop at ATM before lunch for cash.  Bank will have exterior cameras, ATM will have close-up camera

  • 12:30PM: 38 Cameras – Go get lunch – 4 cameras at lunch spot, plus 4 more easily ay surrounding businesses

  • 5:00PM: 45 Cameras – Leave work, go to gym to work out. Camera at check-in desk, plus in 6-8 in workout area

  • 5:45PM: 46 Cameras – Stop to pick up dry cleaning.  Camera at front register

  • 6:00PM: 52 Cameras – Stop for gas.  Cameras at pumps and in store

  • 6:15PM: 54 Cameras – Quick car wash.  Cameras at entry and in-bay

  • 7:00PM: 58 Cameras – Pick up kids from practice/game.  Cameras in school parking lot or on building exterior

Lawmakers and civil rights advocates are concerned about the growing state of surveillance.

But, of course, civil rights advocates do not have a real voice in American society. And, lawmakers are the ones who have facilitated the surveillance state, to begin with. So, unfortunately, if you are someone who was hoping to get back some of your rights, don’t hold your breath.

Dan Avery, author of the article on the Daily Mail writes reports that by next year, there will be approximately one billion security cameras operating around the globe. And 10 to 18 percent of them will be in the United States. In 2019, with 70 million cameras in the US, there was at least one security camera for every 4.6 Americans, putting the US as the second-highest ratio. China, being the first, has 4.1 cameras per person. (China, of course, is the country most infamous for social credit scores but many believe that the US is not far behind.)

Some people advocate these surveillance cameras as a vital tool for safety and security, and an important law enforcement device. However, in an article on All Together concerns about inequality, false results, and unethical use of this technology:

“There’s strong evidence that many of the systems in deployment are reflecting and amplifying existing forms of inequality,” said Sarah Myers West, a postdoctoral researcher at AI Now Institute, an interdisciplinary research center at New York University dedicated to understanding the social implications of artificial intelligence. “For this reason, it’s critical that we have a public conversation about the social impact of AI systems, and AI Now’s work aims to engage in research to inform that conversation.”

Joy Buolamwini, an MIT graduate, AI researcher, and computer scientist, provided firsthand research to inform the conversation. Buolamwini, a Ghanaian American, wrote a thesis, “Gender Shades,” in 2017, after she was misidentified while working with facial analysis software. The software didn’t detect her face until she put on a white mask, she said, “because the people who coded the algorithm hadn’t taught it to identify a broad range of skin tones and facial structures.” The software returned worse results for women and darker-skinned persons.

“We often assume machines are neutral, but they aren’t,” she said in a Time magazine essay about her discoveries. Her thesis methodology uncovered large racial and gender bias in AI services from such companies as Microsoft, IBM, and Amazon. In response, Buolamwini founded the Algorithmic Justice League to “create a world with more ethical and inclusive technology.”

Owners of smart home security cameras may be in jeopardy.

Those smart home security cameras may not make you as safe as you thought they would.

“Some popular home security cameras could allow would-be burglars to work out when you’ve left the building, according to a study published Monday.” CNN Business

An International study carried out by Queen Mary University of London and the Chinese Academy of Science discovered they could tell if someone was home, and even what they were doing in the home, just by looking at data uploaded by their home security camera, without monitoring the video footage itself. And of course as we just published, the microphones embedded in your smart devices can record you and are being used more and more often by police.

An article written by Brandon Turbeville in 2011,“New Report: ‘Recording Everything’ Details How Governments Can Shape The Dynamics Of Dissent,” details how this data is being stored, at a surprisingly low cost to do so.

According to Turbeville, given the prices (in 2011) and the projected decrease in cost in the future, the United States would be able to store the location data of everyone in the country for a whole year for approximately $18,000, the cost of a low-wage job.

The average American is now videotaped and recorded more times in a day than a Hollywood star fifty years ago.

Clearly, we are no longer entering a “growing” surveillance state, we are already in one.


Doomsday Camps Set To "Activate" Due To Risk Of Election Violence 

Doomsday Camps Set To "Activate" Due To Risk Of Election Violence  Tyler Durden Thu, 10/08/2020 - 23:10

As the country inches closer to the Nov. 03 presidential election, federal agencies, city governments, and local police forces are preparing for political and social instabilities, no matter the election outcome. 

Concerns are mounting that mass protests, violent confrontations between extremist groups, and widespread property damage could be seen on election day and days after. If the outcome of the election is undecided, chaos could linger for weeks, if not months. 

The prospects of civil unrest around election day have prompted a chain of US survival communities to "activate" - opening their doors for members to hunker down in bomb shelters, with an abundance of weapons and ammo, and years worth of food.

Reuters reports Fortitude Ranch doomsday camps in West Virginia and Colorado will open both facilities to members on election day because of the threat of social unrest. 

Fortitude Ranch's October newsletter suggested "looting and violence" across major US metro areas, similar to what was seen over the summer following the police killing of George Floyd, could follow the elections next month. The newsletter warned social instabilities could transform into long-term issues. 

Reuters quotes the survival camp's CEO Drew Miller as pointing out that chatter on social media suggest election results could tilt the country into civil war. Miller did not rule out that possibility... 

"This will be the first time we have opened for a collapse disaster, though it may end up not being so," said Miller in an emailed statement. "We consider the risk of violence that could escalate in irrational, unpredictable ways into widespread loss of law and order is real."

Readers may recall, in April, we highlighted soaring demand for Fortitude Ranch's doomsday bunkers came as the virus pandemic resulted in nationwide lockdowns. We then suggested, given the socio-economic implosion, that a "social bomb" was getting ready to explode across Western cities. And it wasn't until late May, after Floyd was killed by police, that unrest broke out in Minneapolis and quickly spread across the country.

Fortitude Ranch describes itself as "a survival community equipped to survive any disaster and long-term loss of law and order," and its actual location(s) are unknown to non-members.

"Fortitude Ranch is a survival community equipped to survive any type of disaster and long-term loss of law and order, managed by full-time staff. Fortitude Ranch is affordable (about $1,000/person annually) because of large numbers of members and economies of scale. Fortitude Ranch is especially attractive to join because it doubles as a recreation and vacation facility as well as a survival retreat. Members can vacation, hunt, fish and recreate at our forest and mountain locations in good times, and shelter at Fortitude Ranch to survive a collapse," the company's website said.

At the moment, Fortitude Ranch has two locations in West Virginia and Colorado, with ten more locations expected in the coming years. The goal is to create a nationwide network of doomsday bunkers. 

The countdown has started. All levels of government to doomsday bunker facilities are now preparing for what could be a violent November. 




Masking, Propaganda, & The Outrage Mob's Murder Of Academic Freedom

Masking, Propaganda, & The Outrage Mob's Murder Of Academic Freedom Tyler Durden Thu, 10/08/2020 - 23:30


If you believe in academic freedom, as well as free speech overall, please consider signing this petition, and sharing it with others who believe that higher education must be free from censorship of any kind, whether by the state, corporations, foreign interests, pressure groups, or by the university itself.

A full professor in NYU’s Department of Media, Culture and Communication (since 1997), and a recipient of fellowships from the Rockefeller, Guggenheim and Ingram Merrill Foundations, Prof. Miller teaches a course on propaganda, focusing not only on the history of modern propaganda, but - necessarily - on propaganda drives ongoing at the time.

The aim is to teach students to identify such drives for what they are, think carefully about their claims, seek out whatever data and/or arguments have been blacked out or misreported to protect those claims from contradiction, and look into the interests financing and managing the propaganda, so as to figure out its purpose.

On Sept. 20, after a class discussion of the case for universal masking as defense against transmission of SARS-COV-2 (in which discussion she did not participate), a student took to Twitter to express her fury that Prof. Miller had brought up the randomized, controlled tests - all of those so far conducted on the subject - finding that masks and ventilators are ineffective at preventing such transmission, because the COVID-19 virions are too small for such expedients to block them.

Prof. Miller urged the students to read those studies, as well as others that purport to show the opposite, with due attention to the scientific reviews thereof, and possible financial links between the researchers conducting them, and such interests as Big Pharma and the Gates Foundation. Prof. Miller followed up by providing the links to the former studies (not easily found on Google, though they have all appeared in reputable medical journals), and other materials, including a video of a debate on the subject.

The student was so outraged by Prof. Miller even mentioning those studies that she called on NYU to fire him:

I hope @nyuniversity, @nyusteinhardt, and @mccNYU agree that this professor should not be trusted with educating and advising students, and I hope they take immediate steps to relieve him of these duties. 8/

— Julia Jackson (@julia_jacks) September 21, 2020

Having contacted NYU’s bias response line to report him, and getting no satisfaction there, the student kept on tweeting her demand for Prof. Miller’s termination, due to his “unhealthy amount of skepticism around health professionals,” and a range of other posts that she had seen on News from Underground, Prof. Miller’s website, and found no less insidious, misreporting that their sources were “many far right and conspiracy websites,” and therefore, evidently, not worth reading.

The student’s call provoked a storm of tweets, many attacking her, and others thanking her - one of which was posted by Prof. Miller’s department chair, promising to act on her demand:

"Julia, thank you for reporting this issue. We as a department have made this a priority and are discussing next steps.”

Soon after this pledge of institutional support, the dean of NYU’s Steinhardt School (in which Prof. Miller teaches), together with a doctor who advises them on COVID-19 policy, emailed each of Prof. Miller’s students (without putting him on copy), starting with a ritual nod to “academic freedom,” then hinting that the studies noted in that class were dangerous misinformation. To set them straight, the two advised the students to consult the “authoritative” CDC—specifically, its list of several recent studies finding that masks are effective against COVID-19.

(That the CDC itself, as well as Dr. Fauci, had, until April, publicly adhered to the consensus of those “dangerous” studies went unmentioned.) The two concluded with a stern reminder that the students are obliged to mask on campus (although Prof. Miller had made quite clear that he was not suggesting that they break NYU’s rule, which he observes himself.)

Thus that student’s tweets immediately prompted NYU to take her side, and several media outlets to attack Prof. Miller for his dissidence, without interviewing him. The following week, NYU followed up by urging him to cancel his propaganda course next term, and, instead, teach two sections of his course on cinema. Their rationale was that it would be “better for the department,” because enrollment in the latter course is always high; but then so are the enrollments for Prof. Miller’s propaganda course, which has earned the highest praises from its students.

For testimonials from Prof. Miller’s students click here.

Below is the text petition, you can sign it here.

We the undersigned support the academic freedom of Prof. Mark Crispin Miller, now under siege at New York University for urging students in his propaganda course to read scientific literature on the effectiveness of masks against transmission of COVID-19.

We see his situation as but one example of a growing global trend toward rigid censorship of expert views on urgent subjects of all kinds; so this petition is not just in his defense, but a protest on behalf of all professors, doctors, scientists and journalists who have been gagged, or punished for their rights to freely research, study, and interpret data on a variety of matters regardless of their controversial nature.

Censorship is nothing new. We have been edging toward it ever more for decades, as both academia and the media have long discouraged free investigation and discussion of urgent public questions of all kinds, as those who would attempt to tackle them empirically have been slandered as “conspiracy theorists” or “truthers” and other slurs deployed to shut them up, or purge them as purveyors of “misinformation,” “fake science” or “hate speech.”

Such censorship has blocked the sort of open, civil, reasoned give-and-take without which higher education—indeed, any education—is impossible, as is scientific progress overall.

We see Prof. Miller’s situation as a flashpoint in the struggle not just to reclaim but to protect free speech and free inquiry. NYU officials have no right to intervene in Prof. Miller’s courses or message his students surreptitiously undermining his integrity as an instructor.

They have no right to deprive him of the courses he was hired to teach and they should not join in a public smear campaign against the very rights they should uphold at a university.

That so stated, we urge that NYU respect his academic freedom, and thereby set a good example for all other schools with faculty who dare contest official narratives. Otherwise, “education” there will be mere training for compliance, stunting students’ minds instead of opening them - a practice fatal to democracy, and, finally, to humanity itself.


The Great Barrington Declaration And Its Critics

The Great Barrington Declaration And Its Critics Tyler Durden Fri, 10/09/2020 - 03:30

Authored by Jenin Younes via The American Institute for Economic Research,

Early this week, three of the world’s top epidemiologists published the Great Barrington Declaration, a short treatise that advocates a controversial approach to managing the coronavirus pandemic. Professors Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford University, Sunetra Gupta of Oxford University, and Martin Kulldorff of Harvard University argue that societies across the globe should reopen immediately and completely. 

Instead of observing measures designed to slow the spread of the virus, the young and healthy should resume normal activity in order to incur herd immunity and thereby protect those vulnerable to severe illness. The authors urge the adoption of this strategy, which they call “Focused Protection,” in light of increasing evidence that “current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. . . Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.” 

As of this writing, the Declaration has been signed by 3,089 other medical and public health scientists, 4,532 medical practitioners, and around 70,000 members of the general public.

While these scientists are not the first to express such views, given the degree to which their stance conflicts with the prevailing wisdom that everyone has a moral obligation to participate in efforts to “stop the spread,” it is not surprising that they have already encountered significant opposition.

Among their primary detractors is Yale epidemiologist Gregg Gonsalves, who considers their proposal akin to a suggestion that society “cull[] the herd of the sick and disabled. It’s grotesque.”

 It is hard to see where Gonsalves reads into the Declaration, which seeks to balance the interests of all demographics, a call to “cull[] . . . the sick and disabled.” This accusation is merely part of the drama in what has become coronavirus theater.

Gonsalves’s more measured, and conceivably legitimate, argument is that, since around fifty percent of the United States population is vulnerable, those most likely to experience severe illness cannot simply be separated out from the rest of society. Some version of this notion – that the strategy is logistically unfeasible and therefore must be discarded– is the most prevalent critique of the document. Gonsalves and others, for instance Dr. Michael Head at University of Southampton, also contend that the declaration’s premise is false, because no one in the scientific community is calling for either extended or extensive lockdowns.

But this latter claim is simply untrue. Many prominent scientists have called for extreme lockdowns in the United States, as recently as last month. While they claim this would eradicate the virus entirely, it is becoming increasingly evident that such suppressive measures last only as long as they are in place. 

Once lifted, the virus simply resurges, as has been demonstrated by countries such as Peru, which initially implemented one of the world’s most extreme lockdowns and now has one of the worst outbreaks. Melbourne, Australia, has been under a severe lockdown for over a month, despite having declared early victory against the virus. The United Kingdom has been enacting various forms of shutdown for several weeks after having been more or less open for the summer, and the mayor of New York City and governor of New York State have been threatening to impose localized lockdowns in Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods in which cases are rising. Thus, whether endorsed by the scientific community or politicians, forced closures of schools and businesses are the default mechanism for managing rising cases in many parts of the world. 

Lockdowns are no strawman, contrary to the claims of Gonsalves et al.

As for Gonsalves’s more compelling concern, it is true that protecting vulnerable members of society who do not reside in nursing homes, while allowing the rest to go about their lives, is not a simple feat. But the many scientists who conclude that, therefore, Focused Protection is not viable are woefully misguided. Initially, some portion of the vast resources that societies are expending to lock down could be diverted to this project. But more importantly, the critics’ position drastically underestimates the harm lockdowns inflict on a society. 

Oxfam recently published a report concluding that 130 million more people will probably die of starvation due to supply chain disruptions resulting from lockdowns around the world. As Time magazine explains, that is exponentially more people than will succumb to the virus itself. The CDC has estimated the probable occurrence of more than 93,000 “non-Covid ‘excess deaths’ this year, including 42,427 from cardiovascular conditions, 10,686 from diabetes and 3,646 from cancer. Many are due to government shutdowns of non-essential medical care.” That is in this country alone. 

Likewise, mental health is deteriorating; substance, child and domestic abuse are increasing; and children, especially those who come from families without means, are falling behind in school. Countless businesses have closed, many for good, spelling financial disaster for their owners and hardship for employees. All of this is due to lockdowns, despite the common misattributions in headlines to the “coronavirus” itself. 

While Gonsalves and the other critics are quick to argue that Focused Protection is “grotesque,” at no point do they address the crux of the matter, which is that the harms of locking down and social distancing, especially to the young, outweigh the benefits. Their opposition stems from the myopic worldview that led to lockdown and social distancing strategies in the first place: that the pandemic is a uniquely horrible problem that justifies sidelining all others in the quest to solve it.

Instead, as we have seen over the past seven or eight months, the coronavirus is just one among countless difficulties that the world faces; when contemplated dispassionately, it does not stand out the way that, for instance, nuclear war or a truly apocalyptic pandemic would. At 1.05 million deaths over the past nine or ten months, the coronavirus appears to be a problem along the lines of, for example, traffic accidents, which cause 1.35 million deaths per year, or tuberculosis, which results in 1.5 million deaths annually. 

Most of us understand and accept that preventing these deaths must be balanced against other interests. If, for instance, we banned vehicular travel in order to avoid deaths resulting from traffic accidents, but doing so caused 130 million deaths from supply chain disruptions, we would immediately recognize this as a failing proposition. Clearly, the same logic ought to apply here.

Critics of the Great Barrington Declaration correctly observe that we will not be able to prevent every death from coronavirus among the vulnerable. But their argument rests on the false assumption that preventing coronavirus deaths is more important than anything else, and while efforts can be made to mitigate collateral damage, in the end all must give way to this overarching goal. 

Rather, like all else in life, mitigation efforts must be balanced against the injury those measures cause. Since lockdowns will probably cause more deaths by starvation alone than the coronavirus, never mind the myriad other harms, the critics’ position simply does not withstand any scrutiny. By contrast, the writers of the Great Barrington Declaration expressly recognize both sides of the equation and seek to minimize coronavirus deaths among the vulnerable and suffering inflicted upon the nonvulnerable. It should be obvious which is the better approach.


18 Reasons To Forgo Flu Vaccinations This Year



In response to the inevitable ad campaigns recommending that “everyone over age 6 months” needs to go to their local hospital, clinic or pharmacy to get their “routine” annual flu shots, I submit below 17 published medical journal articles that have been so ignored and/or censored-out of the mainstream media that most physicians, PAs, nurses, appointment secretaries and, especially, clinic and hospital management are unaware of their existence.

The issue of “flu shot or not” is particularly important this year because there was no influenza epidemic in the Southern Hemisphere’s this year, which means that there could not have been any influenza virus collected that are always chosen 6 months earlier Down Under for the Northern Hemisphere’s next vaccines.

Thus the 3 or 4 strains of influenza viruses chosen, cultured, mass-produced and marketed by Big Pharma corporations this “flu season” for the Northern Hemisphere nations are a total crapshoot and highly likely to have no benefit for potential recipients.

Hence the flu shots offered by GlaxoSmithKline, Sequirus, Sanofi Pasteur, Protein Sciences. (or Merck, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, etc) are likely to be useless at best, dangerous and over-priced at least and any ethical medical entity offering their flu shot this fall must fully inform ALL potential vaccine recipients.

The ethical approach for entities that annually recommend and profit from administering the almost universally ineffective flu shots would be to NOT even offer them this year – with explanations as to why not.

I hope that hospitals, clinics, public health agencies and even pharmacies will do the ethical thing and fully inform their potential clients about the truth about the total absence  of accurate scientific information concerning what viruses are included in the flu shot this year. (Please be aware that the big vaccine/pharmaceutical industries quietly made their obviously blind choices for the now already manufactured and already distributed – and CDC-recommended [!!] – flu shots.)

Even though Big Pharma, physicians, hospitals, clinics and public health agencies – and now even pharmacies – commonly cause inadvertent harm to pediatric patients because of their blind adherence to the CDC-approved childhood over-vaccination schedule, they cannot be legally sued for damages to their vaccine-damaged patients due to the Reagan era liability protection legislation.

Of course, for ethical healthcare entities such as clinics and hospitals, the absence of the fear of  legal liability should not be a factor in making health care decisions, although that is typically of major importance for for-profit pharmaceutical corporations and pharmacies.

The fact that there has been no logic in Big Pharma’s choice of influenza viral strains that have been chosen to be included in this year’s flu vaccine is only the first of the 18 reasons to forgo flu shots this year. The other 17 are below.

17 Published Flu Vaccine Studies that Should Contribute to Vaccine Hesitancy

1] Flu Vaccine Recipients Had a 36% Increased Risk of Being Susceptible to the Corona Virus

“Vaccine-Derived Virus Interference was Significantly Associated with Coronavirus and Human Metapneumovirus Infections”

4]  Flu Vaccines Found to Increase Heart Attack Risk (Several Studies)

“Inflammation-Related Effects of Adjuvant Influenza A Vaccination on Platelet Activation and Cardiac Autonomic Function”

“A concerning study published in 2011 in the International Journal of Medicine revealed a fact rarely addressed by conventional health authorities, or the mostly uncritical mainstream media, namely: flu vaccines result in inflammatory cardiovascular changes indicative of increased risk for serious heart-related events such as heart attack.” The study concluded: Together with an inflammatory reaction, influenza A vaccine induced platelet activation and sympatho-vagal imbalance towards adrenergic predominance. Significant correlations were found between C-reactive protein (CRP) levels and HRV [heart rate variability] parameters, suggesting a pathophysiological link between inflammation and cardiac autonomic regulation. The vaccine-related platelet activation and cardiac autonomic dysfunction may transiently increase the risk of cardiovascular events.

“Influenza: Marketing Vaccine by Marketing Disease”

Peter Doshi, Ph.D., charges that although the vaccines are being pushed on the public in unprecedented numbers, they are less effective and cause more side effects than alleged by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

11] The Flu Vaccine Has Been and Continues to be the Most Compensated Vaccine Injury in the Nation

As of October 3, 2016, there had been 2,954 claims filed in the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) for injuries and deaths following Influenza vaccination, including 109 deaths and 2,845 serious injuries.

Using the MedAlerts search engine, as of June 30, 2016, there have been more than 128,194 reports of reactions, hospitalizations, injuries and deaths following influenza vaccinations made to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), including 1,270 related deaths, 10,780 hospitalizations, and 2,377 related disabilities.

(Please note that it is a well-known and accepted statistic that only 1% to 10 % of vaccine injuries are ever reported to the VAERS and far fewer even know there is a special court in the United States to file for compensation for injury or death.

(Note: The VAERS system is laborious, slow, isn’t funded at all by the vaccine corporations and most victims don’t find out about it until after the statute of limitations has run out! In addition, the system is funded by surcharges on every vaccine that is given in the US – paid for by the vaccine recipients!)

NOTE: Current Vaccine Court cases involving Vaccine Injury Compensation can be found in the official Department of Justice (DOJ) office of the US Government. Details of monetary compensation of each US case are included:

NOTE: The association between the influenza vaccine and Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) was first identified during the 1976-1977 “swine flu” pandemic, and the alarming rate of reported GBS cases following vaccination led to the halting of the flu vaccine campaign.

The One Lockdown That’s Killing Us All


In the 1930s, first Hoover then Roosevelt tried to fix the economy that would have fixed itself if it had been left alone, which was the lesson decidedly not learned from the depression of 1920-21 and the Panics of the 19th century.  If it had been left to recover on its own from federal reserve meddling, there might have been a chance the meddler would have been shut down.

But really, there was no chance.  Anyone who understands the FED’s purpose — keeping the biggest banks solvent through counterfeiting — knows repealing the law that established it was not a thinkable option, given the corrupt powers that supported it.

So the FED, supercharged after FDR made owning gold coins a felony, remained on the scene and advanced its career as an untouchable counterfeiter, creating a legacy of inflation, a policy indispensable to a welfare/warfare/surveillance state.  Big, suffocating government doesn’t thrive on direct theft (legislated taxation) alone.

State growth also creates connections with individuals and organizations not formally a part of the State apparatus.  It has a name: Crony capitalism. Since the State deals with others by force and thrives within its sphere of influence by bestowing favors, there are always people seeking privileges, such as protection from competition, tax breaks, or monetary outlays (bailouts).  In return, the State receives support in the form of political endorsements, election donations, votes, and marginalizing the views of those opposed to State policies or the State itself.

Any crisis arriving on the scene, whether State-caused or natural, is subject to State handling.  People expect the State to “Do something,” and it does.  Today, the State is doing plenty about the coronavirus, and no surprise, it is creating a social catastrophe.

What hath the State wrought?

It’s a challenge to document 2020’s outburst of tyranny when so many levels of government are contributing to the mayhem, but here are a few:

(1)  States ordering “non-essential” businesses to close, while letting “essential” businesses remain open.  If a business weren’t essential it wouldn’t be doing business.  Fortunately, some business owners are at least defying the orders.

(2) With so many small businesses shut down and employees furloughed or fired, the federal government turned to its counterfeiter to ease their pain — short term relief only, of course.  Most Americans aren’t complaining, but they will when they’re greeted with “monumental tax increases” that could eventually wipe out the middle class.  But the CARES act is rarely presented in such truthful terms.  Instead, the government with its astronomical debt somehow found $2.2 trillion in its back pocket it had apparently forgotten about, so the Treasury (not the FED) passed it out to the people, including thousands of foreign workers living overseas.  Money is truly no object when it’s controlled by the government and its printing press sidekick.

(3)  Stay-at-home orders for everyone, even after the virus has shown an affinity for the elderly with existing medical problems and almost no concern for healthy people under 30.  Lockdowns prevent herd immunity and delay recovery.  People jailed in their homes get depressed, divorced, commit suicide, abuse spouses and children, drink too much, and fail to care for other health issues.  They also tend to stay unemployed if they can’t work from home.  The State knows all this.

(4) Mask confusion.  State health authorities saying early on that masks aren’t needed for everyday activities then reversing themselves. Studies and demonstrations showing the futility of masks, along with their numerous downsides, have yet to remove the mandates.

(5)  Making people afraid to get too close to one another.  We must keep at least six feet apart (unless you’re rioting for a leftist cause).  States have tried hard to outlaw hugs.  We can find ludicrous though often creative ways some people circumvent normal hugging.

(6)  Outlawing or restricting outdoor recreational activities.  Remember the video of the cop chasing a lone jogger off the beach?  Or the young mother who was tasered and arrested for not wearing a mask while watching her middle school son play football?

(7)  Hobbling professional sports.  Fake fans in the seats, along with crowd noises lifted from a video game.  No tailgating.  Announcers and commentators broadcasting remotely or spread far apart.  NFL commissioner Roger Goodell fining two head coaches $100,000 apiece for not wearing masks properly on the sidelines.  And also fining their teams $250,000 apiece.

(8)  Canceling the NCAA basketball tournaments for both men and women.  At first canceling, then allowing under restrictions, the college football season.  Two major conferences have yet to begin play.  TV viewers are seeing cheerleaders with masks strapped to their faces cheering from the stands or from the sidelines, with gaping holes in the bleachers where fans normally sit.  Meanwhile, amid all the PC caution, the players engage in a rough contact sport on the field. But even under duress the free market comes through:

At LSU last week, fans were able to purchase a cut out of themselves to be placed in the stands where 82,000 empty seats looked on. The cost? $50.

Depressing, but it’s a choice and a way for the school to recover a bit of lost revenue.

(9)  Criminally, the suppression and in some cases outlawing of a demonstrably effective treatment for SARS-CoV-2, hydroxychloroquine.  The government has never before “restricted physicians from prescribing an FDA approved medication,” according to America’s Frontline Doctors.

Santa Monica cardiologist Dr. Dan Wohlgelernter said during a June 18 interview:

This is an FDA approved drug for 65 years; it’s generic, cheap, widely available. We give it to pregnant women, to breastfeeding women, to elderly patients, to patients who are immune-compromised…

Initially, the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for HCQ, and CQ but then later revoked it.  During the brief period under the EUA the “strategic national stockpile” amassed 63 million doses of HCQ.  Mylan and Novartis donated millions of doses to the stockpile, with Bayer kicking in another two million doses of CQ.  Trump called it a game-changer on March 21 and that changed the game.  On June 15 the FDA revoked EUA, saying:

Specifically, FDA has determined that CQ and HCQ are unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19 for the authorized uses in the EUA.  Additionally, in light of ongoing serious cardiac adverse events and other serious side effects, the known and potential benefits of CQ and HCQ no longer outweigh the known and potential risks for the authorized use.  This warrants revocation of the EUA for HCQ and CQ for the treatment of COVID-19.

Most states had already placed restrictions for its use as a prophylactic and by limiting prescriptions to two weeks with no refills.

Twenty-year emergency room physician Dr. Simone Gold was fired for appearing in a video in which she advocated HCQ for use against COVID-19.  The video, which went viral, was removed from social media.  Her employer threatened to fire her colleagues if she didn’t go quietly.

An ongoing evaluation of HCQ called HCQTrial, done anonymously by PhD researchers and scientists under the name @CovidAnalysis (to avoid another “Simone Gold” incident), presents findings for countries that do or do not use HCQ.  As the chart shows, early treatment makes a big difference, and countries using HCQ show far lower mortality rates.

I’ll let the reader decide whether the war on HCQ is at all related to the Left’s war on Trump and the lucrative revenue stream from government sponsorship of a rushed-to-market vaccine.

(10)  If the State is concerned with our health, why aren’t their spokespeople urging us to boost our immune systems?  That’s our first line of defense against any infectious disease, along with common sense.  Why aren’t they now, in October, urging us to load up on vitamins D3, K2, and C especially, along with zinc?  Why aren’t they classifying HCQ as an OTC drug as it is in many countries, to be used as a prophylactic?


In most circles the fact of government’s necessity is never mentioned but always assumed.  Thus, the push for reforms, to get better people in positions of authority, to pass needed legislation on top of the mountains that already exist.  Always — work within the system.  Don’t rock the boat.  Our foundations are still solid.  Rarely does anyone call into question the need for government-as-we-know-it — the State.

Does the State’s virus management give you confidence it’s acting in your best interest?  For me, it’s like something out of Orwell or Nazi Germany.

Without the State there would be chaos, we’re told.  What do we have today, if not chaos?  I haven’t even mentioned the riots going on, where people defending themselves are charged with serious crimes. The rioters hate the police, and seeing the police stand down, peaceful people now fear for their lives and load up on guns.

And now we’re being hit with black lives matter and only black lives matter.  It is no longer a fringe movement.  It exists virtually unchallenged.  No one, no matter their race, can live long under that slogan.

We already have a government we can live with.  It’s called the free market but it’s been sabotaged by the State.  It’s locked down, meaning not allowed to operate.  We need to set it free.

I’ve written a short book about it and produced a 10-minute video explaining it.

If you, thoughtful reader, want a stateless free market you must tell the world you want it.  At the end of the video I ask you to vote by giving the video a thumbs up or down.  I urge you to give it a thumbs up.  Without your affirmation the stateless free market will forever remain a fantasy and today’s nightmare will only get worse.

The Smoking Gun: Where is the coronavirus? The CDC says it isn’t available.


by Jon Rappoport

October 8, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

The CDC document is titled, “CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel.” It is dated July 13, 2020.

Buried deep in the document, on page 39, in a section titled, “Performance Characteristics,” we have this: “Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available, assays [diagnostic tests] designed for detection of the 2019-nCoV RNA were tested with characterized stocks of in vitro transcribed full length RNA…”

The key phrase there is: “Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available…”

Every object that exists can be quantified, which is to say, measured. The use of the term “quantified” in that phrase means: the CDC has no measurable amount of the virus, because it is unavailable. THE CDC HAS NO VIRUS.

A further tip-off is the use of the word ‘isolates.” This means NO ISOLATED VIRUS IS AVAILABLE.




As if this were not enough of a revelation to shock the world, the CDC goes on to say they are presenting a diagnostic PCR test to detect the virus-that-hasn’t-been-isolated…and the test is looking for RNA which is PRESUMED to come from the virus that hasn’t been proved to exist.

And using this test, the CDC and every other public health agency in the world are counting COVID cases and deaths…and governments have instituted lockdowns and economic devastation using those case and death numbers as justification.

If people believe “you have the virus but it is not available,” and you have the virus except it is buried within other material and hasn’t been extracted and purified and isolated, these people believe the moon is made of green cheese.

This is like saying. “We have the 20 trillion dollars, they are contained somewhere in our myriad accounts, we just don’t know where.” If you don’t know where, you don’t know you have the money.

“The car keys are somewhere in the house. We just don’t where.” Really? If you don’t know where, you don’t know the keys are in the house.

“The missing cruise missile is somewhere in the arsenal, we just don’t where.” No. If you don’t know where, you don’t know the missile is in the arsenal.

“The COVID-19 virus is somewhere in the material we have—we just haven’t removed it from that material. But we know what it is and we’ve identified it and we know its structure.” NO YOU DON’T. YOU ASSUME THAT.

Science is not assumptions.

“But…but…there is a study which says a few researchers in a lab isolated the virus…”

They say they did. But in July, the CDC is saying no virus is available. I guess that means trucks were not available to bring the virus from that lab to the CDC. The trucks were out of gas. It was raining. The bridge was washed out. The trucks were in the shop. Joe, the driver, couldn’t find his mask, and he didn’t want to leave home without it…

Science is not assumptions.

The pandemic is a fraud, down to the root of the poisonous tree.

COVID-19 Is 'Unrestricted Bioweapon': Whistleblower Releases Second Paper Alleging 'Large-Scale, Organized Scientific Fraud'

COVID-19 Is 'Unrestricted Bioweapon': Whistleblower Releases Second Paper Alleging 'Large-Scale, Organized Scientific Fraud' Tyler Durden Thu, 10/08/2020 - 11:25

Li-Meng Yan, A Chinese virologist (MD, PhD) who worked in a WHO reference lab and fled her position at the University of Hong Kong, has published a second co-authored report, alleging that SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19, was not only created in a Wuhan lab, it's an "unrestricted bioweapon" which was intentionally released.

"We used biological evidence and in-depth analyses to show that SARS-CoV-2 must be a laboratory product, which was created by using a template virus (ZC45/ZXC21) owned by military research laboratories under the control of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) government," reads the paper.

SARS-CoV2 is a product of laboratory modification, which can be created in approximately six months using a template virus owned by a laboratory of the People's Liberation Army (PLA). The fact that data fabrications were used to cover up the true origin of SARS-CoV 2 further implicates that the laboratory modification here is beyond simple gain-of-function research.

The scale and the coordinated nature of this scientific fraud signifies the degree of corruption in the fields of academic research and public health. As a result of such corruption, damages have been made both tot he reputation of the scientific community and to the well-being of the global community.

The report also claims that the RaTG13 virus which Wuhan "Batwoman" Dr. Zhengli Shi and colleagues say they obtained in bat feces in 2013 (and which is 96% identical to SARS-CoV-2), is fraudulent and also man made.

Since its publication, the RaTG13 virus has served as the founding evidence for the theory that SARS-CoV-2 must have a natural origin. However, no live virus or an intact genome of RaTG13 have ever been isolated or recovered. Therefore, the only proof for the “existence” of RaTG13 in nature is its genomic sequence published on GenBank.

The report goes on to say that the RaTG13 genome could easily be fabricated, and that "an entry on GenBank, which in this case is equivalent to the existence of an assembled viral genomic sequence and its associated sequencing reads, is not a definitive proof that this viral genome is correct or real," and that the process for sequencing DNA itself "leaves room for potential fraud."

If one intends to fabricate an RNA viral genome on GenBank, he or she could do so by following these steps: create its genomic sequence on a computer, have segments of the genome synthesized based on the sequence, amplify each DNA segment through PCR, and then send the PCR products (may also be mixed with genetic material derived from the alleged host of the virus to mimic an authentic sequencing sample) for sequencing.The resulted raw sequencing reads would be used, together with the created genomic sequence, for establishing an entry on GenBank. Once accomplished, this entry would be accepted as the evidence for the natural existence of the corresponding virus. Clearly, a viral genomic sequence and its GenBank entry can be fabricated if well-planned.

RaTG13 has 'multiple abnormal features,' according to the report. For starters, it's claimed that it was a fecal sample - yet just 1.7% of the raw sequencing reads are bacterial, when fecal swab samples are typically 70-90% bacterial. Second, the genomic sequence for RaTG13 contains segments of non-bat origin, including fox, flying fox, squirrels and other animals.

What's more, China destroyed all evidence of RaTG13. "No independent verification of the RaTG13 sequence seems possible because, according to Dr. Zhengli Shi,the raw sample has been exhausted and no live virus was ever isolated or recovered. Notably, this information was known to a core circle of virologists early on and apparently accepted by them."

Meanwhile, another coronavirus which shares a '100% nucleotide sequence identity with RaTG13' - RaBtCoV/4991 - on a 'short, 440-bp RNA-dependent RNA polymerase gene segment.'

RaBtCoV/4991 was allegedly discovered by Shi and colleagues in 2012 and published in 2016, and colleagues have been asking if it's the same virus as RaTG13.

Given the  100%  identity  on  this  short  gene  segment between  RaBtCoV/4991  and  RaTG13,the  field  has demanded clarification of whether or not these two names refer to the same virus. However,Dr. Shi did not respond to the requestor address this question for months. The answer finally came from Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and long-term collaborator of Shi, who claimed that RaBtCoV/4991 was RaTG1327.

Three suspicious facts

First, it makes no sense that 'Batwoman' Shi and her team wouldn't have conducted whole genome sequencing of RaBtCoV/4991 before 2020, as it was suspected in the deaths of miners who suffered from severe pneumonia after clearing out bat droppings in a Chinese mineshaft.

Given the Shi group’s consistent interests in studying SARS-like bat coronaviruses and the fact that RaBtCoV/4991 is a SARS-like coronavirus with a possible connection to the deaths of the miners, it is highly unlikely that the Shi group would be content with sequencing only a 440-bp segment of RdRpand not pursue the sequencing of the receptor-binding motif (RBM)-encoding region of the spike gene. In fact, sequencing of the spike gene is routinely attempted by the Shi group once the presence of a SARS-like bat coronavirus is confirmed by the sequencing of the 440-bp RdRpsegment25,32, although the success of such efforts is often hindered by the poor quality of the sample.

"Clearly, the perceivable motivation of the Shi group to study this RaBtCoV/4991 virus and the fact that no genome sequencing of it was done for a period of seven years (2013-2020) are hard to reconcile and explain."

Meanwhile, genomic sequencing of RaTG13 was conducted in 2018.

Second, why did Shi delay publication on RaTG13 until 2020 when it's got a Spike protein that can bind with human ACE2 receptors?

...if the genomic sequence of RaTG13 had been available since 2018, it is unlikely that this virus, which has a possible connection to miners’ deaths in 2012 and has an alarming SARS-like RBM, would be shelfed for two years without publication. Consistent with this analysis, a recent study indeed proved that the RBD of RaTG13(produced via gene synthesis based on its published sequence) was capable of binding hACE2

Third, there has been no follow-up work on RaTG13 by Shi's group.

Upon obtaining the genomic sequence of a SARS-like bat coronavirus, the Shi group routinely investigate whether or not the virus is capable of infecting human cells. This pattern of research activities has been shown repeatedly. However, such a pattern is not seen here despite that RaTG13 has an interesting RBM and is allegedly the closest match evolutionarily to SARS-CoV-2

Direct genetic evidence proving RaTG13 is fraudulent

Yan's group closely examined the sequences of specific spike proteins for relevant viruses - specifically comparing mutations, and found that the spike genes of SARS-CoV-2 and RaTG13 do not contain evidence of natural evolution when compared to other coronaviruses which naturally evolved.

A logical interpretation of this observation is that SARS-CoV-2 and RaTG13 could not relate to each other through natural evolution and at least one must be artificial.If one is a product of natural evolution, then the other one must be not. It is also possible that neither of them exists naturally. If RaTG13 is a real virus that truly exists in nature, then SARS-CoV-2 must be artificial.


It is highly likely that the sequence of the RaTG13 genome was fabricated by lightly modifying the SARS-CoV-2 sequence to achieve an overall 96.2% sequence identity. During this process, much editing must have been done for the RBM region of the S1/spike because the encoded RBM determines the interaction with ACE2 and therefore would be heavily scrutinized by others.

The paper concludes: All fabricated coronaviruses share a 100% amino acid sequence identity on the E protein with ZC45 and ZXC21

Evidence herein clearly indicates that the novel coronaviruses recently published by the CCP-controlled laboratories are all fraudulent and do not exist in nature. One final proof of this conclusion is the fact that all of these viruses share a 100% amino acid sequence identity on the E protein with bat coronaviruses ZC45 and ZXC21, which, as revealed in our earlier  report1, should be the template/backbone used for the creation of SARS-CoV-2. Despite its conserved function in the viral replication cycle, the E protein is tolerant and permissive of amino acid mutations. It is therefore impossible for the amino acid sequence of the E protein to remain unchanged when the virus has allegedly crossed species barrier multiple times (between different bat species, from bats to pangolins, and from pangolins to humans). The 100% identity observed here, therefore, further proves that the sequences of these recently published novel coronaviruses have been fabricated.

Unrestricted bioweapon?

Yan notes that while it's not easy for the public to accept that SARS-CoV-2 is a bioweapon due to its relatively low lethality, it indeed meets the criteria of a bioweapon.

In 2005, Dr. Yang specified the criteria for a pathogen to qualify as a bioweapon:

  1. It is significantly virulent and can cause large scale casualty.
  2. It is highly contagious and transmits easily, often through respiratory routes in the form of aerosols. The most dangerous scenario would be that it allows human-to-human transmission.
  3. It is relatively resistant to environmental changes, can sustain transportation, and is capable of supporting targeted release.

All of the above have been met bySARS-CoV-2: it has taken hundreds of thousands lives, led to numerous hospitalizations, and left many with sequela and various complications; it spreads easily by contact, droplets, and aerosols via respiratory routes and is capable of transmitting from human to human, the latter of which was initially covered up by the CCP government and the WHO and was first revealed by Dr. Li-Meng Yan on January 19th, 2020 on Lude Press; it is temperature-insensitive (unlike seasonal flu) and remains viable for a long period of time on many surfaces and at 4°C (e.g. the ice/water mixture).

What's more, COVID-19 spreads asymptomatically, which "renders the control of SARS-CoV-2 extremely challenging."

"In addition, the transmissibility, morbidity, and mortality of SARS-CoV-2 also resulted in panic in the global community, disruption of social orders, and decimation of the world’s economy. The range and destructive power of SARS-CoV-2 are both unprecedented."

"Clearly,SARS-CoV-2 not only meets but also surpasses the standards of a traditional bioweapon. Therefore, it should be defined as an Unrestricted Bioweapon."
