Manufactured Pandemic: Testing People for Any Strain of a Coronavirus, Not Specifically for COVID-19

The following is from a medical forum. The writer, who is a widely respected professional scientist in the US, prefers to stay anonymous, because presenting any narrative different than the official one can cause you a lot of stress in the toxic environment caused by the scam which surrounds COVID-19 these days. – Julian Rose

I work in the healthcare field. Here’s the problem, we are testing people for any strain of a Coronavirus. Not specifically for COVID-19. There are no reliable tests for a specific COVID-19 virus. There are no reliable agencies or media outlets for reporting numbers of actual COVID-19 virus cases. This needs to be addressed first and foremost. Every action and reaction to COVID-19 is based on totally flawed data and we simply can not make accurate assessments.

This is why you’re hearing that most people with COVID-19 are showing nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. That’s because most Coronavirus strains are nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. The few actual novel Coronavirus cases do have some worse respiratory responses, but still have a very promising recovery rate, especially for those without prior issues.

The ‘gold standard’ in testing for COVID-19 is laboratory isolated/purified coronavirus particles free from any contaminants and particles that look like viruses but are not, that have been proven to be the cause of the syndrome known as COVID-19 and obtained by using proper viral isolation methods and controls (not the PCR that is currently being used or Serology /antibody tests which do not detect virus as such). PCR basically takes a sample of your cells and amplifies any DNA to look for ‘viral sequences’, i.e. bits of non-human DNA that seem to match parts of a known viral genome.

The problem is the test is known not to work.

It uses ‘amplification’ which means taking a very very tiny amount of DNA and growing it exponentially until it can be analyzed. Obviously any minute contaminations in the sample will also be amplified leading to potentially gross errors of discovery.

Additionally, it’s only looking for partial viral sequences, not whole genomes, so identifying a single pathogen is next to impossible even if you ignore the other issues.

The Mickey Mouse test kits being sent out to hospitals, at best, tell analysts you have some viral DNA in your cells. Which most of us do, most of the time. It may tell you the viral sequence is related to a specific type of virus – say the huge family of coronavirus. But that’s all. The idea these kits can isolate a specific virus like COVID-19 is nonsense.

And that’s not even getting into the other issue – viral load.

If you remember the PCR works by amplifying minute amounts of DNA. It therefore is useless at telling you how much virus you may have. And that’s the only question that really matters when it comes to diagnosing illness. Everyone will have a few virus kicking round in their system at any time, and most will not cause illness because their quantities are too small. For a virus to sicken you you need a lot of it, a massive amount of it. But PCR does not test viral load and therefore can’t determine if it is present in sufficient quantities to sicken you.

If you feel sick and get a PCR test any random virus DNA might be identified even if they aren’t at all involved in your sickness which leads to false diagnosis.

And coronavirus are incredibly common. A large percentage of the world human population will have covi DNA in them in small quantities even if they are perfectly well or sick with some other pathogen.

Do you see where this is going yet? If you want to create a totally false panic about a totally false pandemic – pick a coronavirus.

They are incredibly common and there’s tons of them. A very high percentage of people who have become sick by other means (flu, bacterial pneumonia, anything) will have a positive

PCR test for covi even if you’re doing them properly and ruling out contamination, simply because covis are so common.

There are hundreds of thousands of flu and pneumonia victims in hospitals throughout the world at any one time.

All you need to do is select the sickest of these in a single location – say Wuhan – administer PCR tests to them and claim anyone showing viral sequences similar to a coronavirus (which will inevitably be quite a few) is suffering from a ‘new’ disease.

Since you already selected the sickest flu cases a fairly high proportion of your sample will go on to die.

You can then say this ‘new’ virus has a CFR higher than the flu and use this to infuse more concern and do more tests which will of course produce more ‘cases’, which expands the testing, which produces yet more ‘cases’ and so on and so on.

Before long you have your ‘pandemic’, and all you have done is use a simple test kit trick to convert the worst flu and pneumonia cases into something new that doesn’t actually exist.

Now just run the same scam in other countries. Making sure to keep the fear message running high so that people will feel panicky and less able to think critically.

Your only problem is going to be that – due to the fact there is no actual new deadly pathogen but just regular sick people, you are mislabeling your case numbers, and especially your deaths, are going to be way too low for a real new deadly virus pandemic.

But you can stop people pointing this out in several ways.

1. You can claim this is just the beginning and more deaths are imminent. Use this as an excuse to quarantine everyone and then claim the quarantine prevented the expected millions of dead.

2. You can tell people that ‘minimizing’ the dangers is irresponsible and bully them into not talking about numbers.

3. You can talk crap about made up numbers hoping to blind people with pseudoscience.

4. You can start testing well people (who, of course, will also likely have shreds of coronavirus DNA in them) and thus inflate your ‘case figures’ with ‘asymptomatic carriers’ (you will of course have to spin that to sound deadly even though any virologist knows the more symptom-less cases you have the less deadly is your pathogen.

Take these 4 simple steps and you can have your own entirely manufactured pandemic up and running in weeks.

They can not “confirm” something for which there is no accurate test.

 


The Plain Truth: Bill Gates' DTP vaccine killed 10 times more African girls than the disease itself

The inconvenient truth about a real life serial mass murderer-Bill gates

See our message board here: We been covering The Plain Truth about the crimes of Bill Gates and other so-called philantrpist 

(GREAT GAME INDIA) – According to a peer reviewed study published in a respected journal by the world’s most authoritative vaccine scientists, Bill Gates DTP vaccine killed 10 times more African girls than the disease itself. The vaccine apparently compromised their immune systems. Although, such study was never performed before 2017, Bill Gates and the Vaccine Alliance GAVI and WHO pushed the vaccines on unsuspecting African babies.

The study titled "The Introduction of Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis and Oral Polio Vaccine Among Young Infants in an Urban African Community: A Natural Experiment" was commissioned by the Danish government and Novo Nordisk Foundation and was conducted by a team of the world’s leading experts on African vaccination led by two most prominent names, Drs. Søren Wengel Mogensen and Peter Aaby.

The DTP vaccine is a class of combination vaccines against three infectious diseases in humans: diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), and tetanus.

Wars and Rumors of War: Indian and Chinese tanks 'go face-to-face within 300 feet of each

IS WAR COMING IN ASIA?

Indian and Chinese tanks 'go face-to-face within 100 yards of each other at Himalayan

The photo of the tanks was first shared on Chinese social media site Weibo by a 'military blogger' and the story has since been picked up by pro-Beijing news sites which boast of the prowess of their Type-15 tanks. It shows armored vehicles lined up against each other close to a dirt road along the 2,000-mile border where last year grisly hand-to-hand combat left at least 20 Indian soldiers dead. Since June's clash, the first deadly fighting in 45 years, India and China have heavily fortified their positions on either side of India's Ladakh region. On Monday, the Times of India reported that the Chinese had moved around 10,000 troops held in reserve up to the Line of Actual Control (LAC) - the line drawn by the foes after the 1962 Sino-Indian War.

10,000 National Guard troops close off monuments and patrol anti-climb fences as DC braces for violence

Security to prevent free speech

Inauguration Day 2021: Tough security measures at US Capitol

Tough security measures are being put in place across Washington DC ahead of Joe Biden's inauguration next Wednesday. The security measures are now being implemented earlier than scheduled in the wake of last week's attack on the US Capitol by Trump supporters. Trump has already declared a state of emergency in DC and authorities have revealed three separate plots to attack the Capitol ahead of the inauguration. Officials are promising extremely tight security around the entire capital region, including increased law enforcement, extra checkpoints, fencing and barricades. The public is now banned from entering the Capitol grounds and access to the Washington Monument is also now prohibited for the next two weeks. Public access to roads and restrooms on the National Mall, where crowds usually gather during inaugurations, may also be shut down this week.


The Plain Truth about the Officer Killed in the Capital Attack

You probably will not read this in most media outlets

source: The NY Post

On Thursday, Brian Sicknick, an officer with the US Capitol Police, died from injuries sustained during the storming of the Capitol building. Democratic leaders have presented Sicknick as a martyr of the #Resistance against President Trump and his dangerous supporters. 

Reality is more complicated.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi described Sicknick’s death as a reminder of the need to “protect our country from all threats, foreign and domestic.” President-elect Joe Biden suggested that whoever backed Trump supports “an all-out assault on our institutions of our democracy.” The day’s violence, it seems, has become an all-purpose excuse to denounce and silence anyone not sufficiently anti-Trump.

Yet neither Biden nor Pelosi reckoned with an uncomfortable fact: Sicknick was a Trump supporter himself, as his friend Caroline Behringer announced shortly after his death. Far from sharing the views of the #Resistance, he had written letters to his congressman opposing Trump’s impeachment.

Like many Trump supporters who are now being censored, he believed that the system is fundamentally rigged in favor of a narrow elite. He had used fiery rhetoric, even called for regime change in America. 

The people who claim to honor Sicknick have elided these facts. Acknowledging them would undermine their effort to label the 75 million Americans who supported Trump as a domestic threat. Already, unelected Silicon Valley billionaires are using Sicknick’s death to justify censorship of views he expressed. Liberals are cheering the limitation of free speech. Leftists are applauding the exercise of corporate power. 

What could lead a man like Sicknick to support Trump? Must it be white supremacy, conspiracy theories or one of the other reasons usually cited by the media? 

What we know of Sicknick’s views tells a different story. Six months after graduating from high school in 1997, he joined the Air National Guard. He was deployed to Saudi Arabia and Kyrgyzstan. A series of letters he later wrote to the editor of his hometown paper give a portrait of his disillusionment with the leaders of the country he served.

In 2001, he described his attempt to gain help from his representatives in a dispute with his employer: “I have written a staggering number of letters to elected officials in both the state and federal governments. Only one state senator responded. This is one of the main reasons I will not be enlisting for a second term in the National Guard. I am no longer going to risk my life in hostile environments for a government that does not care about the troops.”

In 2003, Sicknick expressed his growing doubts about the War on Terror: “Our troops are stretched very thin, and morale is dangerously low among them. I’m starting to see an increasing trend of US soldiers asking, ‘Why are we still here?’ ”

He had come to believe that the United States was engaged in an “unnecessary war.” He denounced the “arrogant oil hacks that occupy the White House” and complained that the Bush administration had “its hands grasped firmly on the puppet strings of conservative senators.” His conclusion was stark: “I believe we should have regime change right here in America.”

In 2004, he poured scorn on Team Bush’s proposal to revive space exploration. Why go to space, he wondered, when “the health-care system is in shambles, and many Americans have simply given up looking for jobs”? 

His rage deepened after the release of the 9/11 Commission Report: “Proven intelligence failures regarding the war in Iraq and Sept. 11 are troublesome. Why is it that I doubt any jobs will be lost over this? Why is it that I doubt an impeachment would happen? Why do I think the issue will soon be forgotten?”

After serving his country and observing the workings of its government, Sicknick had come to believe that America is governed by a self-interested, unresponsive and unaccountable oligarchy. There is ample evidence to support his beliefs. Biden and Sen. Chuck Schumer, both of whom voted to authorize the invasion, have suffered no consequences for their folly.  Nor have the countless other supporters of the invasion who populate Congress, K Street and the think tanks.

The same people who launched a costly and failed war in Iraq now hope to humiliate and silence Trump’s supporters. But the concerns that led to the rise of Trump won’t disappear until our failed elites pay for their mistakes. 

When they smear Trump voters, they dishonor Officer Sicknick’s memory.

Bob Barney: How to make your vote work again

This was first published 18 years ago on WND

While many Americans believe their elected representatives in Washington are nothing more than a bunch of pickpocketing shysters intoxicated by the influence of powerful lobbyists, the solution – as radical as it might sound – might just be to put more people in office.

I propose we amend the Constitution to add even more members to Congress – and I mean dramatically more.

When our founding fathers built the country on a representative form of government, they intended the masses to have a democratic voice. They sought to make one government body controlled by the majority of voters; hence, the House of Representatives, the people's voice in government.

The sole purpose for this branch of Congress was to ensure that the majority of the voting populace had a say in government actions. That's why House members have the shortest term in office, at two years.

While there's no doubt the framers of the Constitution were brilliant planners, they did not foresee the eventual size and scope of America, especially in terms of population growth. In a way, the population explosion has become the Achilles heel of our republic.

The Encyclopedia of World History states "Following the establishment of the new constitutional order, the U.S. population increased from 3.9 million in 1790 to 9.6 million in 1820. The Louisiana Purchase in 1803 added the nearly 2 million people who occupied the nine new states and three territories west of the Appalachian Mountains. The nation's urban population increased from less than 550,000 in 1820 to 1.8 million in 1840. By 1870, when the U.S. population reached nearly 40 million, about 25 percent of the total lived in cities, as the urban population grew more rapidly than the population as a whole."

When founding fathers originally assigned 435 members for the House, they were delegating one member for roughly every 8,900 people. Of this amount, only 900-1,000 could actually vote. Keep in mind, only land-owning men over 21 had that right – not women, not children, not minorities. No wonder we read about Davy Crockett walking his district to press the flesh with his electorate. He could easily meet every man that voted for him, a far cry from today where the average congressman meets only a small fraction of constituents.

Today, a House member may represent a half-million or more citizens in his district, with another 150,000 eligible to vote. With such a ratio, do you think your congressperson really cares one whit about your personal opinions? If members do their job correctly, they've already neutralized your vote through gerrymandering.

Politicians quickly learn it's not their constituents they need to worry about, but rather, money. And to get that cash, they cozy up to the people and corporations that have it. The result? Taxation without representation for the vast majority of voters! The same issue that helped spark the American Revolution.

If a constitutional amendment were passed to put the House back to the same representation level as in 1789 (one House member per 1,000 voters), we'd actually need 202,000 members. I'm not suggesting we adopt that large a figure, but if we took the population ratio of 1789 – 8,900 per district – we would still need 20,000 House members. Can you start to see how much more important a vote was to Davy Crockett than one is today?

My compromise is that we set up a new Congress based on the idea that a congressperson has districts of only 50,000 registered voters (that would get the voter registration drives up) and that the number of House members are not limited. The 2000 census indicates the U.S. has 130 million registered voters and another 73 million more adults not registered.

To make the math easier, let's assume that we would have 150 million registered voters after the new law goes into effect. That would equate to about 3,000 representatives. Now before you laugh, remember we've had at times ten times that number of people in the Pentagon alone. These 3,000 could meet in a new building, pass laws, do the business of government and then send their bills to the Senate.

It sounds simplistic, but it would put government back into the hands of the common man. Corporations cannot buy 3,000 votes. Citizens would personally know their congressman again, like in olden times. Neighborhood leaders would find themselves elected to Congress. Local issues would have weight again in Washington, and the special-interest groups would be relegated to spending their time and money on senators and the president.

The new system has an added bonus when it comes to presidential elections.

The Electoral College would increase by almost 2,600 voters where suburbs and rural areas would have a greater weight in elections than they do today. You'd find White House wannabes meeting more voters in person. Look at the map of the 2000 presidential contest. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that George W. Bush carried the majority of the land mass of America. Granted, large cities would acquire many more House members, but so would the large suburbs that surround the cities.

Finally, our forefathers never envisioned full-time lobbying, not to mention a full-time Congress.

Lobbyists have had a larger influence on our government than any of the framers ever envisioned. On both the far right and the far left, a few powerful groups have held the vast majority of Americans in bondage. It's especially true in the Senate, where large unpopulated states have far more representation than larger states, and lobbyists have an easier time getting their agendas made into laws. A stronger House would better control a much too-powerful Senate.

So, by shifting the balance of power back to the voters, we'd return our country back to what our founding fathers initially envisioned: a land of free persons who can control their destiny through the ballot box and not the rifle.

USS Stout returns home rusty after spending a record-breaking 215 consecutive days at sea

The USS Stout and its crew lived up to its name after spending a record-breaking 215 consecutive days at sea after the coronavirus pandemic made it unsafe to pull into ports around the world. The destroyer left Virginia's Naval Station Norfolk in mid-January and finally ended its grueling nine-month deployment when it returned home on October 11, the US Navy said. Along the way, the USS Stout traveled more than 60,000 nautical miles, completing multiple strait and choke point transits as it crossed the Atlantic Ocean while operating in the US 2nd, 5th and 6th fleets carrying out various missions including ensuring the free flow of commerce. Recent pictures of the USS Stout - which was commissioned in 1994 - show the wear and tear toll that being at sea for nearly a full year has taken on the vessel. The USS Stout is show in the main image with its rust stains and other seafaring damage and at inset as it normally looks.


8 Disturbing Statements on Masks You Probably Won't See on MSNBC

“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.”

That same paragraph concludes with this sentence: “In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”

Here we are, five months into the coronavirus pandemic. Five months into a raging fire that two weeks of shutdowns were supposed to save us from back in March, and the flames continue to rip through state after state, city after city.

Places that held the virus at bay early on are firmly in its grasp now. Some locales are seeing their second battle with this beast. The narrative from the experts is more fluid than that 5W-30 that keeps your car engine from locking up.

Don’t wear masks? Now everyone wear masks. Goggles … people should probably start wearing goggles. It might be necessary to wear masks in your own home. If we don’t get a vaccine soon, those experts may suggest everyone have a mask surgically attached to their face.

With each new restriction, politicians and bureaucrats tell us to trust the science, but the science keeps changing. Or does it?

On March 31, NBC News published an article titled “Do you need a mask? The science hasn’t changed, but public guidance might.”

NBC quoted the oft-stated official line “a mask does not help a healthy person avoid infection.” How many times have we heard, “My mask protects you; your mask protects me”?

But in this same article, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is quoted as saying the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may need to look at changing the guidance to recommend widespread mask use “as long as we’re absolutely certain we don’t take the masks away from who are health care providers who need them.”

Eric Eggers: Nearly 250 Counties Have More Registered Voters than Eligible Voters

Bob Barney: The following article was published by me on December 17th 2018- 2 Years ago! So was I surprised to see a stolen election?  NO!  Why should have the Trump people been surprised.  This was probably the last election in America, and it was stolen.  Every single election coming will be as real as those in Russia!   America say goodbye to your freedom. You are soon to be enslaved.

Corrupt elections, and dead people voting is WORLDWIDE! It's the dirty fact that the DEEP STATE don't want you to know. Elections in the West have been doctored for years, and that is The Plain Truth! 

image from media.breitbart.com

Nearly 250 counties across the United States have more registered voters on the voting rolls than the number of eligible, citizen voters, Government Accountability Insititute (GAI) research director Eric Eggers reveals in his new book.

Eggers told Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, as his new book, Fraud: How the Left Plans to Steal the Next Election, details, that voter fraud in the U.S. is a real issue that has yet to be dealt with.

“You have 248 counties in this country that have more registered voters than you have citizens of legal voting age … nearly three million people are registered to vote in more than one state,” Egger said. “Even Barack Obama’s … administration said that yeah, maybe 16 million election registrations are completely inaccurate. And in some states, this is as many as one-in-seven [registrations].”

Eggers said Democrats and left-wing organizations funded by globalist billionaire George Soros fight “at every turn to keep any effort to increase [voter] security,” which he said, “includes leveling the charges of racism anytime a state wants to do anything” about combatting voter fraud.

Thousands of Christians depend on DC to pray

Tens of thousands join Rev. Franklin Graham's Prayer March in Washington DC

'Father, our country is in trouble. We need your help,' prayed Graham at the march. 'We pray today specifically for the President Donald J. Trump.' Organizers say up to 50,000 people attended, making it one of the largest gatherings in the nation since the coronavirus pandemic struck and, and bans on large gatherings were implemented. The march, which stretched from the Lincoln Memorial to the U.S. Capitol on Saturday, was held just hours before Trump was set to announce he was nominating a conservative judge for the Supreme Court.

 


NEVER FORGET! Dramatic images of World Trade Centre collapse on 9/11

We have seen the Twin Towers collapse hundreds of times on TV. The steel and glass skyscrapers exploding like a bag of flour, the dust and smoke pluming out across Manhattan. But never like this, from above.

Nine years after the defining moment of the 21st century, a stunning set of photographs taken by New York Police helicopters forces us to look afresh at a catastrophe we assumed we knew so well.

You know but cannot see the 2,752 men, women and children who died at the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001. None is visible here.

Fred Weinberg: It's Time for Fox To Drop 'Fair and Balanced' and Drop Juan Williams with It

Given my view of the world, you are more likely to see Fox News on my office wall than any other news outlet.

But it’s time they, too, start paying attention to the real world.

Let’s discuss “fair and balanced.” Those two terms are these days often mutually exclusive.

Jessica Tarlov, Marie Harf, Richard Fowler and Juan Williams don’t balance anything. What they do is generally lower the intelligence quotient of otherwise good panels.

Ask any of them a question and then match their answers against the daily Democratic talking points.

It’s as if the aforementioned leftist establishment talking heads have them directly injected each morning.

Donna Brazile I have a little more respect for since she once emotionally noted that it took a conservative Republican president (George W. Bush) to appoint our first black female secretary of state. But Donna also has a tendency to slide down the Democratic slope when she’s inspired.

Amid the charred wreckage of his family’s business and dreams, a Kenosha man is calling for more protections for small businesses as riots rage out of control across the nation.

Anmol Khindri is a member of the family that owns Car Source, a used car dealership that was all but destroyed after two nights of arson and vandalism left the business suffering a loss he estimated at $2.5 million, according to the Kenosha News.

Rioting began in Wisconsin last Sunday after Jacob Blake, 29, was shot by police trying to detain him. Mobs began rampaging through downtown Kenosha, vandalizing and torching buildings.

A HYPERSONIC Air Force One???? Looks like it

Air Force awards $1.5 million contract to develop hypersonic Mach 5 plane

The contract, announced by aerospace firm Hermeus on Thursday, will fund the development of a small passenger jet that could replace the Gulfstream-based planes currently in the presidential fleet. Though the current aircraft under consideration would be too small to replace Air Force One, it could conceivably someday be used to transport Cabinet members, Congressional delegations, and other officials whose transport is overseen by the Special Air Mission. The Air Force investment, awarded through AFWERX, is worth $1.5 million and will be used to evaluate potential hypersonic military transports for an aircraft seating nine to 19 people, according to Aviation Week Defense Editor Steve Trimble .
