Kool-Aid

By Jack Reed

I remember the first time that I was asked to drink the Kool-Aid. It was November 1963 when I, along with my fellow Americans were asked to believe that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in assassinating JFK. It took me about four years to realize that scam. Now, although fully 61% of us have come to doubt that official story, the truth has still been sealed from us. Right after high school I was iin officer training at the Air Force Academy when we were told in August that the North Vietnamese had attacked a U.S. warship in the Gulf of Tonkin. That was the second time I’d been asked to swallow the Kool-Aid, but, somehow, intuitively, I knew right when we got the announcement that there was something wrong with that story. Several years later, after millions of deaths and agent orange continuing to cause a high percentage of birth defects, it came to light that the Gulf of Tonkin had been a false flag event to fool the public and lawmakers into involving us into that ill-fated war.
Then in 1968 in quick succession we were asked to drink Kool-Aid again with the assassinations of MLK by James Earl Ray and RFK by Sirhan Sirhan. By that time I’d seen the Kool-Aid offered so many times that I was hesitant to drink. Years later the King family proved that Ray was not the killer and that the killing had been arranged by J. Edgar Hoover, who was also involved with the JFK assassination. Still, to this day, and thanks to the collusion of the media, most people have not undrunk the Kool-Aid and remain ignorant. The same is true of RFK where the fatal bullet came from inches bind RFK with Sirhan standing several feet in from of him. Ray died in prison and Sirhan is still behind bars.
While the Kool-Aid was offered several times over the following twenty plus years, the next time I remember the Kool-Aid was the official story of why we were invading Panama in late 1989. After the U.S. forces couldn’t find Noriega for a week, we were shown on TV and in all the papers a picture of Noriega’s supposed apartment where on display were drugs, child pornography, witchcraft and one other evil. I was aghast at that Kool-Aid, muttering to myself, “After a week, you can’t find Noriega, and now you want me to believe that this apartment picture with the four ‘evils’ is real?” A few years later I saw The Panama Deception, which won an Oscar for best documentary. There it was revealed that the photo of Noriega’s apartment that was used to demonize him, was the very same picture the CIA had provided to demonize Chile’s President, Salvador Allende just before the CIA was involved in his assassination. George H.W. Bush dubbed the Panama invasion “Operation Just Cause.” Just Cause, Really? H.W. was also there in Dallas when JFK was shot.
Then in 1995 when the Oklahoma City bombing killed so many, we were told that the bomb in the van parked on the street did all the damage. We were only briefly told about the bombs found inside the building before that news was pulled. The Kool-Aid offered was that Timmothy McVeigh’s van did all the damage when forensics showed that the bombs inside did the major damage.
By this time the architects of the Kool-Aid must have thought that they could get away with anything as long as the press could be controlled. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, we needed a new enemy to justify why we spend more money on the military than all the other nations combined. As Eisenhower warned in his farewell address, “Beware of the military industrial complex.” And so it was on September 11, 2001 that we were repeatedly shown images of the Trade Towers. Unlike a couple of my friends who intuitively knew that we were being hood-winked, I initially drank of some of that Kool-Aid that day and for several months thereafter — until I realized that the official story defied the laws of physics. Yet with now only 21 percent of those polled agreeing with the official story that the building collapsed due to fires alone, still all the main-stream media and the politicians keep going along with this impossible story.
And that brings me to the Kool-Aid we are now being asked to drink. Again it took me a couple of months and a lot of research to realize that the powers-that-be have the media control and clout to serve us the drink AGAIN! Watch as this plays out in the long run. Vaccinate, vaccinate, vaccinate — the drink is being fed to us all the time now. Well, sorry, but ever since that first drink in November, 1963, Ive consumed too much Kool-Aid already, and I’m on to you now. Still though, as much as we know and as much as we suspect that’s a part of some diabolical agenda(s), if we were to learn everything that’s really going on, it would blow even our minds. So, until the truth is fully known, think before you drink

Is Dehumanization The New Normal?

Let me begin by encouraging pattern recognition, a cognitive skill provided us by nature with obvious survival value. But cognition is easily trumped by emotion, and fear is the most compelling emotion in nature’s survival toolkit. Consequently, nothing so empowers rulers over their subjects than its artificial production, amplification and broad transmission into contagion. When one herd member starts running, all others quickly follow. As Germany’s WWII military chief, Field Marshall Hermann Goering observed,

“Why, of course, the people don’t want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood.

But… it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship… Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”

In this way have citizens inhabiting “the land of the free and home of the brave” long been kept in fear for which most have willingly conceded freedom – along with civil rights, conscience, empathy, the rule of law, and independent judgment – for appearances of protection by the state. Our most important psychological functions and interactive instincts provided us by nature for survival have been disabled.

It’s been a long historic trajectory, sufficiently incremental to remain barely visible.

Following our gratuitous, demonstration use of atomic bombs, WWII immediately morphed into the Cold War nuclear arms “race” with the ever-present image of “a mushroom cloud” looming over us as we sheltered under school desks and in homemade back yard bunkers upon emergency test alarms.

Dread of “international communism” justified McCarthy-era civil rights violations of suspected communists and suppression of the civil rights movement including key leadership assassinations. Its imagined political contagion through a “domino effect” was used to justify mass-murdering three million Vietnamese, Operation Condor atrocities throughout South America, Iran-Contra atrocities in Central America, economic strangulation of Cuba, and overthrow of numerous elected governments worldwide that were moving toward socialism. All of these aggressions – invariably euphemized as “foreign policy” rescues of benighted peoples – have been flagrant violations of international law disregarding the 1945 UN Charter and 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

No sooner had the Soviet Union collapsed than we were promptly faced with the declared existential threat of “Islamic terrorism” personified in Saddam Hussein and his presumed terror weapons for which we terrorized the people of Iraq in the Gulf War and lionized the heroic command of General Norman Schwarzkopf while concealing our war crimes from public view. To presumably contain Saddam’s monstrous impulses, a monstrous decade of crippling sanctions followed that killed at least a half-million Iraqi children.

Lest we be allowed to relax our guard, 9/11 and the ominous figure of Osama bin Laden soon emerged to remind us to keep our weapons industry well-fed with taxpayer dollars and to remain ever-alert to terrorists among us, watching for unattended briefcases and submitting to X-rays and other intimate intrusions by government authorities as conditions of air travel. The mushroom cloud image was even resurrected to resume overt annihilation of Iraq.

Bin Laden could be officially eliminated when Isis became the proximal threat, but with control of Syria returned to its legally constituted government and Isis largely out of business, can we finally relax? Afraid not. We now have a dread virus loose in the land that can strike any of us down at any time, transmitted to us by our fellow citizens of whom we must again remain diligently watchful.

Do citizens notice a pattern here?

And this may be the worst state-imposed phobia yet. Women used to smile at me passing on the street – a pleasant, anonymous exchange. Now I see only nervous eyes peering over a mask, taking care to pass quickly with a wide berth. Encountering friends, the natural impulse to reach for a hand, an arm, a shoulder, a hug is prohibited by “social distancing” and state-imposed touch phobia.

As psychopathology, touch phobia has a name – haphephobia. It reaches deeply. We begin managing our emotional homeostasis pre-verbally during the second six months of life in response to emotional signals from our primary caretaker(s) through facial expression, voice intonations, and physical touch. These forms of contact remain fundamental to anxiety management throughout life. With lockdown directives, simultaneous with relentless inflammation of public anxiety by the media, facial expression is hidden and vocal expression muffled by masks, and touching is reduced to primary relationships where this may or may not be warm, safe or dependable. Moreover, masks have been proven ineffective to prevent viral transmission.

The importance of touch cannot be overemphasized.

Most profoundly, perhaps, satisfying touch is uniquely predictive of non-violence. Following WWII, nuclear physicists were alarmed at how their discoveries had been abused, and one of the most important studies in the history of psychology was published in The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists in 1975, entitled “Body Pleasure and the Origins of Violence” by developmental neuropsychologist James Prescott. This study compared societal violence across 400 pre-industrial societies using cultural anthropology data. Only two cultural variables differentiated the least from the most violent cultures: generous touch in infancy and permissive practices around adolescent sexuality.

In moments of despair and helplessness we might remember the profound emotional impact of relaxing into a long, lingering hug, feeling physically supported and protected. How often has this prevented suicidal or homicidal violence?

In the journal Biological Psychology, University of North Carolina researchers reported that long hugs release the oxytocin hormone decreasing anxiety, producing restful calm, and inducing lowered blood pressure and heart rate. A study reported in the journal Behavioral Medicine found warm partner contact related to lower cardiovascular reactivity. A 2011 study published in the Journal of Ethology found that length of hugs expressed intensity of shared experience. Research by Dutch psychoanalyst Judith Kestenberg identifies distinctive nonverbal messages such as stroking another’s back in a nurturing rhythm to sooth, bond, and communicate connectedness. The journal Human Communication reported a relationship between touch deprivation and depression.

But the government and its compliant media have inflamed public anxiety about touching. The most natural anxiety-reducer has become instead an anxiety-producer. For the 37 million Americans who live alone, these natural anxiety-reduction mechanisms are especially attenuated. Express Scripts reported 15-20% increases in prescriptions to relieve anxiety, depression and insomnia between mid-March and mid-April, and almost 80% of these were new prescriptions. Cannabis sales are up 52% to 130% compared with January at over 1,300 stores nationwide. Nearly 70% of workers claim the coronavirus pandemic is the most stressful event of their careers – more than 9/11 and the 2008 economic crash.

Something profound is involved. Transactional Analysis, established by psychiatrist Eric Berne in the 1960s to understand interacting states of mind in human relationships, identified social recognition – colloquially designated “strokes” – as a basic human need. Home confinement, social distancing, and fear of others as potential virus-bearers starves this basic hunger and predictably generates anxiety and depression. Introversion-extroversion is a reliably measured personality dimension, and of course extroverts, who rely primarily on external sources of identity-validation, are more seriously affected than introverts, who self-define more from their own thinking and activities. Psychiatrists working for Ginger – a company that provides employers with video- and chat-based mental-health services for employees (professional strokes) – wrote 86% more scripts for psychotropic drugs (strokes-to-go), primarily antidepressants, in March and April 2020 than during the two previous months.

Successful adaptation also requires reality-exploration, but fear blocks clear thinking . The need for perceived safety from an invisible menace trumps every other state of mind, disables non-emergency mental functions and narrows the range of perception. Psychotropic agents maintain preoccupation with reducing anxiety rather than examining its sources.

This raises questions that beg investigation.

What’s behind the breathless, relentless media promotion of this virus? A large majority of those infected remain asymptomatic or only mildly symptomatic, develop immunity through contracting and eliminating the virus, and never become identified “cases.” Including these – estimated from random antibody testing – with recorded cases, the case fatality rate is about one per 400 (.26%, concentrated among immunity-weakened older patients) and by further extension, vastly less than the population fatality rate. German scientists including a medical panel assembled by an interior ministry official report that nearly every death has involved serious co-morbidities in people already near the end of life with significantly attenuated immune systems. US doctors have been pressured and given financial incentives to diagnose, hospitalize, ventilate and list covid-19 as cause-of-death irrespective of these co-morbidities.

Lockdowns endanger public health. Diagnostic and preventive procedures are postponed and treatment programs interrupted, health insurance is lost with unemployment, poverty increases among the most vulnerable, depression and anxiety escalate. Unicef estimates that fatalities in developing countries due to social isolation and economic damage will vastly exceed those from the virus.

Clinically practicing physicians, microbiologists, virologists, public health physicians, epidemiologists, and other relevant scientific specialists are widely questioning the scientific integrity of Dr. Fauci, the CDC, the WHO, and leading medical journals (Lancet, NEJM, JAMA) that have recently, shockingly, published grossly misleading research papers – based on data from no documented sources and potentially lethal overdoses of hydroxychloroquine administered at the wrong stage of treatment – in obviously deliberate attempts to discredit the early-stage treatment efficacy of this inexpensive, safe, and already available drug. Two of these papers were quickly withdrawn and the third appears based on malpractice causing iatrogenic deaths that required early termination of the study.

Dr. Fauci knew by February that the covid-19 CFR would be very low, less than 1%, and published this in the NEJM on Feb 28, 11 days before the economically disastrous lockdown that he allowed while promoting public panic.Dr. Fauci, Bill Gates & Dr. Francis Collins (NIH Director)

A homicide detective first asks, cui bono? In French murder mysteries, the first hypothesis is cherche la femme. My first hypothesis here is cherchez l’argent. I would connect the following: TV news has been deluged with covid-19 stories, and Big Pharma is often the #1 TV advertising revenue source. In 1980 Congress granted government scientists patent rights for their taxpayer-supported research products, a right Dr. Fauci has exercised. In 1986 Congress granted vaccine manufacturers immunity from liability, which has made long-term safety testing unnecessary since vaccine damage lawsuits are now defended by the federal government – but under our declared “public health emergency” even the federal government is now immunized. The CDC receives indispensable funding from the Gates-founded Gavi Alliance and Gates-supported Emory University CHAMPS Network ($9 million in 2019). The Gates Foundation and Gavi Alliance together contribute more to the WHO budget than any nation other than the US and about equal to the UK. Bill Gates envisions “almost everybody vaccinated globally” before the world economies can be safely unlocked.

But if inexpensive, effective and already available prevention and treatment options have been widely used and proven effective by medical practitioners worldwide, there is no need for a vaccine or other new Big Pharma profit centers. That simple truth is being desperately concealed.

There’s much more to investigate, including the source, peculiar characteristics and early distribution of this virus, early understanding of it that was withheld from the public, inexcusable misallocation of medical resources, and why the vastly greater public costs and deaths resulting from economic constriction were ignored. If the full truth is ever unearthed, I suspect the event will be comparable to 9/11 – creating population-wide fear to justify increased government intrusion upon civil rights while quickly transferring massive wealth from the agora to the castle and enriching a major industry with massive lobby power.

If covid-19 isn’t a dehumanization experiment with several dark objectives, why does it look that way, evoking the dystopian visions of both George Orwell (1984) and Aldous Huxley (Brave New World)? We seem thrust ever more deeply into an age of both Newspeak and Soma that we must reject as a “new normal.” Our societies must instead return along the opposite path toward re-humanization.

The moderators of a local Facebook group quickly took down a friend’s posted link to the 4-part, 2-hour Corbett Report on Bill Gates on the grounds of alleged “covid denial.” This is apparently a new thought crime, or what George Orwell called “crimestop,” the foundation stone of “Newspeak” prohibiting venture beyond the threshold of any dangerous thought. And what are today’s forbidden thoughts? Any rational examination of covid-19, the inflated and ever-morphing assessments of its dangers, ominously intrusive contact tracing that will remain recorded by the state well beyond the declared pandemic, the terrible social and economic sacrifices imposed on societies worldwide, the looming specter of mandatory vaccinations with experimental and insufficiently safety tested genetic fragments, and above all any skeptical views of the scriptwriters and directors of this dark drama. The entire script has now become Sacred Myth descended from on high, protected by threat of excommunication from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube for any who dare to question – much less deflate or defile – its absolute status. Censorship has become suffocating and bizarre.

To remain included within acceptable society, we must now heed Zarathustra’s precaution. Nietzsche writes, “Why stealest thou along so furtively in the twilight, Zarathustra? And what hidest thou so carefully under thy mantle? Verily, my brother, said Zarathustra, it is a treasure that hath been given me: it is a little truth which I carry. But it is naughty, like a young child; and if I hold not its mouth, it screameth too loudly.”

To revisit yet another prescient mind, we find ourselves increasingly trapped aboard a planetary Pequod in obsessive pursuit of a single avoidable threat while ignoring and inviting all others. Bill Gates appears cast as Captain Ahab in this production with Anthony Fauci cast as press secretary issuing continuous, ever-shifting, evasive and ambiguous statements, obviously stalling for time until emergence of the magic vaccine, untested on animal models, untested with randomized, placebo-controlled efficacy trials, and untested with long-term safety studies. All with quiet complicity of Drs. Burke and Redfield for motives that remain hidden, with no sensible first mate Starbuck on board.https://lockerdome.com/lad/12925101372814438?pubid=ld-137-4870&pubo=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.opednews.com&rid=www.opednews.com&width=308

The Pequod was sunk and all but one of its crew lost who lived to tell the tale. Moby Dick is ranked a literary classic for good reason. It is urgently important to identify psychological characteristics of those holding power that put us all at risk. The just-released book by Mary Trump, the President’s niece, describes him as learning disabled (with thought complexity confined to tweets) and the emotionally undeveloped product of a seriously dysfunctional childhood, still “a terrified little boy” (which would account for his compensatory bravado). The 2005 book “Bush on the Couch” by Washington psychoanalyst Justin Frank described Bush 43’s definitive markers of psychopathic personality, but too late to prevent “Shock and Awe” followed by the horrific Fallujah massacres inflicted by General “Mad Dog” Mattis and Abu Ghraib, survivors of which formed ISIS. The consequences of non-recognition precluding possibilities of timely intervention can be monumental.

Rational citizens must recognize the vital importance of psychological conditions among power-wielders that involve disabled or undeveloped functions including judgment, conscience, empathy, impulse regulation, and what is known in my trade as “ego boundaries.” But these go largely unnoticed since they correspond with the same deficiencies in our national psyche.

What’s my trade? Following three years as an army psychologist fresh out of grad school during the VN War, I spent five years at a major child study center. Autism was rare at that time, recognized as a severely disabling condition affecting both verbal and non-verbal communication, including touch aversion. It has subsequently become recognized as one end of a continuum designated “autism spectrum disorder” manifesting a range of disability severity along the same dimensions. The variations of ASD have proliferated in recent decades for unknown reasons, but substantial evidence suggests frequent and often simultaneous introduction of multiple attenuated viral genetic materials and adjuvants from vaccines as a causal factor. This trajectory has risen sharply since the 1986 National Child Vaccine Injury Act immunizing vaccine manufacturers from liability, thereby removing business risk considerations compelling appropriate long-term safety testing that has predictably eroded.

Why do I mention autism? The public has become much more aware in recent years of autistic manifestations, and numerous observers of Bill Gates’ idiosyncratic behaviors over the years have made speculations suggesting the possibility of Asperger Syndrome. Corbett describes Gates as “awkward” and “tone deaf,” which are characteristic features of a well-compensated ASD adult who has learned the rules of social interaction and communication, practiced for social adaptation on a rather mechanical level. Corbett also described him as a “savant” – a term applied to ASD individuals who are very gifted, often obsessively, in one area while remaining significantly disabled in other functions. Gates’ very narrow, obsessive foci – first on building his software empire (more copy-and-paste than creative) and then a vaccine empire imagining this as the lodestar to public health and population growth abatement to save humanity – further suggests a picture of high-functioning but blindly unrealistic ASD.

Armchair judgments of an elusive psychological syndrome are necessarily speculative, but examining the characteristics that have led to these perceptions are potentially consequential for the future of us all. However gifted in his original line of work, Gates’ inflated self-importance beyond this seems to respect no boundaries. Clinical recognition of “autistic thinking” preceded identification of formally defined autism and ASD, and such thinking seems clearly in evidence, both grandiose and delusional. Gates envisions vaccinating the entire world, holding return to normalcy hostage until then, implying with bizarre ego-inflation that the decision affecting millions of unemployed people with families to feed and hundreds of thousands of floundering small businesses is up to him. With his financial power over the WHO,* CDC ** and public health bureaucracy (broad influence within NIH, especially Dr. Fauci’s NIAID), this grandiosity may not be unrealistic. He provides these agencies with now-indispensable funding and support for mutually favored agendas such as vaccines for which government scientists can claim patent rights for products of their

Bill Gates with NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins and NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci

Gates’ disarmingly sanguine manner projects earnestness and innocence in the current midst of social and economic chaos. He seems honestly oblivious to realities beyond and created by his own obsession. In my trade we call this “inappropriate affect” seriously out-of-touch with the experienced realities of others. Such emotionally flattened, compartmentalized, unrealistic thinking detached from real-life incongruities and complexities has long been identified in psychology and psychiatry as “autistic” well before a syndrome was identified. Alongside the slickly sociopathic personalities that largely dominate our ruling class, this is a dangerous psycho-political fusion reminiscent of mad medieval kings with their scheming courts and bizarre world domination dreamers with their corruptible executioners not that long ago who have hideously disfigured past societies.

Our captive media collude in concealment of essential corrective knowledge. No effective coronavirus vaccine has ever been developed since their continuous mutations present an ever-moving target. Vaccinations are no trustworthy panacea and have been empirically implicated in widespread irreversible damage, which impelled the industry to secure immunity from liability in order to stay in business. The ongoing lockdown is inflicting enormous economic, health and psychological damage worldwide already far surpassing damage attributable – even accepting shamelessly inflated figures – to SARS-2.

Are onlookers not deeply troubled by Gates’ alarmist declarations about the ONE thing he envisions, a dread virus with an infection fatality rate of .26% that must be vaccinated out of existence before normal human life can resume? And should we not all be deeply troubled by the state-imposed masking that limits identity recognition, obscures facial expression and muffles speech, and the state-prescribed fear of proximity and touching, all of which impose collective ASD-like communication disabilities? Relentless blanket propaganda has widely disabled population-level perceptual and cognitive functioning already, but we must ask what increased population control model is now being field-tested.

Meanwhile, we watch the current race to market of novel technology covid-19 vaccines going straight to blindly trusting human subjects lining up as eager guinea pigs driven by virus phobia and desperation to regain their livelihoods. This Frankenstein technology predicts transforming human cells into self-generating vaccine factories, which unlike a passing virus will be irreversible and intergenerational.

A spirited non-partisan resistance is arising, especially in Europe, but will it be enough, in time, and sufficiently comprehensive in its vision? Beyond a limited, immediate resistance to an unacceptable transient reality, today’s grotesque distortion of human normalcy begs a profound, existential, collective question: will we submit to a degraded humanity that has long been developing and now reaching its apex, which feels like an experimental collective ASD with us all out of touch with each other?

Or will we radically transform the system that allows vast power in the hands of tiny, untrustworthy, behaviorally masked minorities out of touch with us? The former would be the lazier choice, retaining faith in political and institutional parent figures and vulnerability to their delusions, deceptions and corruption. I recommend we instead choose the latter, more challenging, courageous, emancipating course.

Overview of The COVID Event

By: Jack Dresser, P.hD.

Considering the severe impacts of government actions upon employment, small businesses, public mental health, opportunities for vulture capitalism transferring massive assets from everyday citizens to multinational banks, massive corporations and the wealthiest citizens through the deceptive CARES Act, the American people are owed a thorough and fully independent investigation of this economically catastrophic management of a perceived public health threat amplified by alarmist reporting before necessary facts were available.

Specifically, we must demand investigation of the following documented events and questionable policies brought to public attention during this crisis:

·         Failure of the federal government to obtain prevalence data to provide a valid denominator in morbidity and mortality rate assessments, data provided by Stanford University and USC studies in late April, some six weeks after a “pandemic” was declared without these necessary data.

·         These California studies based on indices of ongoing or recent infection in subject samples from Santa Clara and Los Angeles counties estimated prevalence rates of 3-4%, with case morbidity risk of about 1.5% and case fatality risk of .15%. Since business closures are the prevention modality causing the most economic hardship and exacerbation of other health problems, I did a further analysis in late May comparing covid-19 fatalities (from NYT reports over 90 days between January 21 and April 21) of the 13 states that did not close “non-essential” businesses with 13 neighboring states that did (identified by USA Today), which show an indistinguishable difference slightly favoring the open states, with both reporting about three deaths per 100,000 population (see attachment 1).  As of December 30, 2020, the worldwide infection fatality rate is less than 2.2% – with population-level deaths of 1.84 million in a population of over 7 billion, concentrated heavily among the elderly with significant co-morbidities (see attachment 2). Do epidemiologists define these infection rates and fatality risks as a “pandemic” or “public health emergency”?

·         NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci had information from China in January that reflected these modest predicted rates, but failed to notify the public, publishing this only in a Feb. 28 paper in the New England Journal of Medicine.  In this paper he anticipated a death rate of less than 1%, comparable to a “severe seasonal influenza,” including China’s report of “higher morbidity and mortality among the elderly and among those with coexisting conditions.” This would have suggested simply protecting the vulnerable elderly.

·         Nevertheless, a society-wide lockdown has continued through December, inflicting severe economic, social, psychological and non-covid medical hardships on millions that have caused far more deaths than covid-19.  Following over nine months of this lockdown, the worldwide CFR is consistent with (and at the low end of) Dr. Fauci’s early expectations.

·         Many leading molecular biologists, virologists, epidemiologists, ER and urgent care physicians, and infectious disease specialists have explained that masking, social distancing, business restrictions and closures, and touch avoidance prolongs rather than prevents spread of a viral infection since these measures delay “herd immunity” among the large low-risk majority whose immunity will subsequently protect the high-risk minority. Sweden followed this model with no lockdown or draconian social interaction modifications to permit development of herd immunity, had a somewhat higher CFR than neighboring Norway due largely to failure to protect nursing home residents, but had a lower rate than any major European country other than Germany, and has now returned to normal with none of the  collateral damage widespread elsewhere. 

·         Denmark also followed a permissive model, with masking optional and infrequent.  This facilitated a nationwide randomized controlled study of masking effectiveness with experimental and control subjects instructed to wear or not wear masks in public.  With its large sample size (c. 6,000), stratified random sampling design controlling for regional variations, 30-day exposure window during the height of the pandemic, use of 3-layer surgical masks, satisfactory (80%) subject completion rate, and multiple outcome criteria, the study findings are definitive to the naked eye irrespective of the statistical analysis necessary for scientific publication. The most valid comparison with unmasked controls were about half the treatment subjects who masked consistently as directed, where the infection rates were 2.0% (masked) and 2.1% (controls), with inconsistent maskers leading the others at 1.7%.

·         Doctors report being incentivized to hospitalize ($13,000) and to ventilate ($39,000) covid-19 patients although ventilation may often be the wrong treatment, even causing iatrogenic death. Inappropriate use of ventilators despite early warnings by conscientious physicians competent in emergency and infectious disease medicine appear to have killed thousands of patients.

·         In a shameless effort to inflate the covid death count, doctors have been instructed by the CDC to list covid-19 as primary cause-of-death whenever present or presumed irrespective of chronic co-morbidities that have heretofore been reported as primary with acute infectious diseases listed as secondary contributors.

·         Two exercises precisely anticipating this pandemic were held in 2019. Event 201 sponsored by Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was held in NYC in October, and Crimson Contagion, a series of simulations by DHHS envisioning a pandemic outbreak beginning in China, had previously been held in Washington between January and August.  These are not only de facto suspicious, but why was our public health system so unprepared?

·         Reuters and Politico reported White House meetings in January including Pentagon and CIA officials that excluded public health officials.  The pandemic media preoccupation has been used as cover to further impose illegal sanctions on Iran and Venezuelatransfer Venezuelan state funds into a NY Federal Reserve account of Juan Guaido, quickly sponsor an aborted invasion of Venezuela by private mercenaries under a $150 million contract with Guaido, and distract attention from the November 2019 “lithium coup” against the elected president of Bolivia.

·         The presumed pandemic has been used in the US and worldwide to justify state infringements on freedom and privacy and in some places police abuse, and there is now a movement within government health agencies to condition certain civil rights on mandatory vaccinations. These unconstitutional intrusions are now being challenged in US and international lawsuits.

·         There is credible evidence that this virus has been lab-modified from SARS covid 1. If so, this likely originated from collaborations including US and Chinese bioweapons laboratories at the University of North Carolina BSL3 lab, the Wuhan Virology Institute BSL4 lab, and the ex-chair of the Harvard Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, a nanotechnology expert, who was arrested and indicted in 2020 for lying to federal investigators about unreported $50,000 monthly income from China. These collaborations are reflected in joint authorship of scientific articles by University of North Carolina, Harvard and Wuhan scientists and by two $3.7 million grants to Wuhan from the NIAID in 2014 and 2019 through EcoHealth Alliance – a NIAID pass-through organization – for gain-of-function coronavirus research. Their collaboration apparently moved from UNC to Wuhan in 2014 followed a 2013 SCOTUS judgment confirming its previous decision that genetic material cannot be patented.

·         The 1980 Bayh-Dole Act federal legislation should be repealed that allows government scientists to patent products of their taxpayer-funded research, opening the door to dangerous and unethical conflicts-of-interest and potential corruption.

·         Irrespective of the origin of covid-19, all US BSL3 and BSL4 labs in the US and overseas should be closed as morally indefensible existential threats to humanity.

·         The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine InjuryAct  should be repealed, which immunized vaccine manufacturers from liability, thereby removing the necessity of thorough safety testing in their business model and leading to a proliferation of highly profitable vaccines without adequate risk/benefit evaluation.

·         Following this legislation, vaccine injury claims were defended by the US Department of Justice in a Vaccine Court with some $4.4 billion in judgments paid plus court costs at taxpayer expense, despite denying most claims by parents.

·         The 2020 PREP Act should be repealed, which extended immunity from vaccine liability to the US government as well as manufacturers, leaving vaccine-injured citizens with no legal protection or recourse.

·         There are unacceptable institutional conflicts-of-interest as well. Bill Gates has stated his ambition to establish a global system and production capacity to vaccinate the entire world for this and future enemy viruses.  This fits seamlessly into the very disturbing Agenda 20-30 and World Economic Forum visions of centralized, borderless world control, which would increase the power and wealth of the .001% rather than democratically redistribute these, and would eliminate situational, local, regional and national approaches to this and all other challenges to humanity while smothering individual, organizational and cultural identities – an agenda of which the covid-19 measures imposed upon us across the globe are a troubling harbinger.

·         In addition, Gates has undisclosed conflicts-of-interest with the massive looming vaccine profit center, and the Gates Foundation, Gates-established/controlled GAVI Alliance, and Gates-funded CHAMPS program through Emory University provide indispensable funding to the CDC and WHO. Following US withdrawal of WHO support by President Trump, the Gates Foundation and GAVI now provide more funding to the WHO than any of the 192 nations it serves.  To propagandize for public acceptance through news reporting, the pharmaceutical industry provides enormous TV advertising revenues, about equivalent to the fast food industry and exceeded only by the automotive industry. The funding bases of organizations, institutions and industries affecting public policy must be effectively regulated to eliminate taints of corruption.

·         A long-established, safe, inexpensive drug – hydroxychloroquine – when combined with zinc and prescribed at the early outpatient level has been demonstrated highly effective in multiple studies worldwide, but has been prohibited for use by American physicians and fraudulently demonized by studies that administered it at inappropriate, hospitalized stages of treatment in potentially lethal dosages, apparently to discredit a fear-reducing remedy that obviates the need for $3100 remdesivir and desperately rushed development of new and dangerous vaccines (see attachment 3).

·         Vitamins C and D are effective for both prevention and treatment, and well-established anti-inflammatory drugs such as budesonide and ivermectin have proven highly effective in preventing and reducing the immune system overreactions that account for respiratory distress and collateral organ damage. Simple antibiotics such as azithromycin prevent opportunistic bacterial pneumonia. These effective, inexpensive, familiar preventive and treatment protocols have been ignored by our public health establishment and its captive press, with newly minted experimental vaccines promising massive Big Pharma profits promoted relentlessly as the only answer from the beginning.  As long-time Director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, why did Dr. Fauci neglect to advise use of ordinary anti-inflammatory medications fundamental for treatment of an infectious disorder that is his specialty?

·         The declared “pandemic” has been prolonged by a frantic interweaving of contact tracing and PCR testing – a method its inventor, Nobel Prize laureate Kary Mullis, has explained only identifies viral molecules that are often inconsequential, not intended to diagnose disease. The public has been terrorized into readiness to seek safety in a vaccine, an agenda of the CDC and WHO as well as the NIAID. There is widespread concern that covid-19 vaccinations could be mandated or made a condition of certain civil rights (e.g., assembly, access to public spaces) despite use of experimental technologies, very inadequate safety testing, irreversible effects, and a long record of vaccine injuries documented by court records.

·         Requiring covid-19 vaccination as a condition of school attendance would be not only unjustified but arguably criminal.  Oregon pediatrician Paul Thomas, who has scrupulously provided parents with informed choice whether or not to vaccinate their children, performed a review of his clinical records over 10 years comparing ongoing health status of vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Collaborating with research methodologist Dr. James Lyon-Weiler , Dr. Thomas found striking differences in health outcomes, with the unvaccinated children far healthier across all measures.

·         These facts are now being introduced into evidence in lawsuits across the world where most jurisdictions do not provide liability immunity to pharmaceutical manufacturers.

·         Reports and attempts to investigate these very troubling questions, although scrupulously fact-based, have been ignored or casually dismissed as “conspiracy theories” by the mainstream press and met with smothering censorship in alternative web-based and social media efforts by hundreds of physicians, medical research scientists, independent and citizen journalists, civil rights attorneys and alarmed everyday citizens challenging the official narrative.

The methods, motives, and orchestrating powers of this dark global theatric that we are not allowed to dig into and examine lead us back toward the sponsors of Crimson Contagion – the vaccine-obsessed Gates Foundation, the Great Reset dreams of World Economic Forum Davos Denizens, and Big Pharma as their instrument and beneficiary.  Or would that just be another silly conspiracy theory?

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
