It Was Always a Con: The COVID Debacle
Updated: Oct 4, 2021
This is the harvest of medical wisdom gained from interactions with some of the world’s leading researchers and clinicians.
We are precariously on the crossroads between recurring paralysis and breaking free of the tripe we’ve been fed, we urgently need these distinctions.
Globally, the one-two punch of “lockdowns needing vaccines as rescue” was a marketing ploy designed to remove our commonsense assessment paradigm, our psychological antivirus defenses, and become captive to a distorting set of assertions, built on a disempowering dead-end narrative.
This is likely the initial intent, and authoritarian leaning opportunists have plied these dynamics for other ends. As Julius Ruechel writes,
"This is a global, social, engineering shell game, a subscription-based business model adapted for the pharmaceutical industry."
Immunity would no longer be a biological asset or gift, but a service that had to be rendered.
We knew C-19 couldn't be eradicated unlike smallpox (a uniquely human virus with no animal reservoirs). Most respiratory viruses come through animal reservoirs, swine, birds, bats, etc. Therefore, they cannot be eradicated. They can only be tamed through individual immunity.
Currently COVID has already made it, as per antibody testimony, to wild deer, been documented in wild mink and apparently otters, leopards, gorillas and more. So, unlike “specialists” like smallpox, “generalists” like respiratory viruses never run out of hosts to keep the infection cycle going. Before COVID there were several hundred other endemic respiratory viruses that caused colds and flus and which circulate freely between human and animals, a new one joining their ranks is not such “breaking news”.
Its predecessor, SARS was never very contagious, made people extremely sick and did not have pre-symptomatic spread, and was therefore very containable. As we already knew by Jan/Feb 2020 from China, Italy and the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship -- a floating case study that we scrupulously ignored because it did not fit the narrative of the “con” -- COVID was quite contagious, giving most people mild to no symptoms (making containment impossible) and was spreading by aerosols from both pre-symptomatic and just post symptomatic people, hence contact tracing could not be a solution. And yet, our official policies were…contain and contact trace!
Viruses survive by creating copies of themselves, so variants are normal and hence long-lasting immunity to starve them completely out of existence is impossible. Hence with flu season our immune system constantly needs to be updated.
Therefore, from Day 1 we knew, COVID vaccination at best would lead to a life-long regimen of booster shots for those unwilling to risk natural infection (and those shots would be racing to keep pace with the pipeline of mutations).
Complex viruses like measles have a complicated cellular attack strategy, in terms of producing imperfect copies aiming for successful mutation. While influenza locks onto the sugars on the outside of the cell wall and piggybacks as sugar is absorbed into the cell (their energy source), measles relies on specialized surface proteins to open a doorway into the host cell.
This is rigid and complex and does not leave much room for error in the copying process. Most mutations there are unable to gain access to host cells to make more copies and so become evolutionary dead ends which allow both natural infection and vaccination re measles to create lifetime immunity.
Coronaviruses have proteins on the virus surface which latch onto a receptor on the cell surface, a kind of key for unlocking. They are much simpler and much less specialized than measles and more complicated than influenza, though not enough to inhibit a continuing flow of potential variants (500 or so by recent medical inventory) that make full throttled immunity impossible.
So, the pharmaceutical “frenzy” to deal with variants as if they are a surprise, a sneak attack in our otherwise well-ordered viral universe, is an utter charade, like being “shocked” that dusk follows the day. And in ignoring this, paraphrasing the Bard,
“thou shalt therefore be false to every man (woman, child).”
Though these vaccines do not provide sterilizing immunity and never intended to by their own self-description, if in some fanciful alternate universe, 8 billion people were somehow all vaccinated, by the time the final batches were being jabbed, mutations would have already rendered the vaccine increasingly ineffective!
The logistics alone mean that no public health authority could plausibly ever have even believed this was possible. And with self-infatuated elites hoarding the vaccines and dashing to get re-jabbed with the equivalent of last year's flu shot, WHO is forced to hyperventilate at these appalling optics which undermine even the pretense of credibility.
So, the current vaccines are a tool designed to teach the immune system to attack the S- spike protein to reduce the severity of infection. They were never capable of preventing infection or preventing spread, nor in their EUA, did they ever audition for that role.
So, our savior was to be a mechanism which at best would reduce your chance of being hospitalized or dying if you were above 65 with several chronic illnesses, even though you still had close to a 95% chance of recovery, and affordable therapeutic early treatments could improve that further. If so, that means the vaccine passport impetus to separate the vaccinated from the unvaccinated was clearly a “con” as well. If the vaccines “worked” conventionally, who cares if anyone else is vaccinated? If they don’t for that purpose (as they don’t in this regard), why foist them on everyone?
Grossly oversimplifying, there are layers of defenses based on the gravity of the challenge. We have layers of antibodies, highly specialized white blood cells like B cells and T cells. There are memory B cells which remember previous threats and create new antibodies long after the original antibodies fade away. There are also various types of T cells with varying degrees of immunological memory.
So, very simply, a mild infection doesn't trigger as many layers of response, whereas a severe one mobilizes deeper adaptive layers which are capable of retaining a memory of the threat to be able to mount a quicker attack if recognized in the future. So, if someone were still alive, originally affected by the Spanish Flu of 1918, they may well still have T-cell immunity (why would we steal such an asset from our children?) whereas a mild bout of winter flu a few years ago may have triggered nothing even though both may be caused by the same version of the H1N1 virus.
Another con here: every public health official and vaccine maker knows that vaccine immunity will often fade much faster because the vaccine is often only able to trigger a partial immune response compared to the actual infection. And so, the C-19 vaccines which recreate the S-protein spike instead of the whole virus, could never have been expected, out of the starting gate, to be an exception to the rule. Asserting or implying otherwise, was again crazy.
Every “health” spokesperson knew this and those asserting otherwise, have been outright lying. Moreover, all our experience with coronavirus immunity in both humans and animals, demonstrated only a temporary short-term protection. And there was no reason to expect, despite hollow pretense, for these rushed through “panaceas” to be any different.
WHO and public health officials could therefore only have been rolling out lockdowns with vaccines as an exit strategy, to whip the public into an irrational fear such that they would swarm for mass vaccination. On known facts, focusing these on the most vulnerable is all that could have been sanely called for.
The Virus Mutations Under Lockdown Conditions
There is a natural evolution of RNA respiratory viruses toward less dangerous variants. Allied with that is cross reactive immunity that comes from frequent re-exposure to their cousins.
For a virus, a lively host is more useful than the bedridden or besieged, because they can spread it further and still be around and catch future mutations. Plagues killed and then were starved out of existence because all survivors had herd immunity by then. Hence, the Delta variant being more contagious and yet mortality wise more mild is precisely both what we would expect and hope for.
This is why locking down the healthy is so sinister. Someone in bed with a fever cannot infect others as readily as a healthier mobile host with a variety that only gives them a sniffle. So, normally more dangerous variants become outnumbered as long as the majority of the infections are among the healthy. All our “lock and awe” tactics reduce spread among the healthy however, so that mutations among the healthy are potentially outnumbered by mutations among the bedridden instead.
So, via lockdowns we inflicted evolutionary conditions that potentially shifted the competitive evolutionary advantage to more dangerous variants. Evolution doesn't twiddle its thumbs while we race around after pseudo vaccines.
If you look at the Spanish Flu its first wave was not particularly deadly. The second wave was catastrophic particularly to young people. The second wave occurred when three quarters of the entire French military and half of British troops had been infected. So, on the one hand, this enabled variants adapted to young people.
And then, the cramped conditions of warfare and field hospitals allowed dangerous variants to spread freely with little competition. And disaster struck! When the war ended, the lockdown mimicking conditions also ended shifting the competitive advantage back to less dangerous mutations that could spread freely among mobile, healthy people. And lethality began to peter out.
So, was the lockdown strategy used intentionally so as to keep the virus from fading into endemic irrelevancy before vaccines could be produced? On the one hand we think you'd have to be utterly incompetent or outright inhuman to impose virus amplifying conditions with “malice aforethought”. That said, since lockdowns have not been used on the healthy ever in history, you have to wonder how we got here, 18 months later from the desperately asserted two weeks to flatten that damnably “elastic” curve!
Leaky Vaccines and More
When you have vaccines designed to reduce the risk of severe outcomes, the vaccinated can still catch and spread the disease. Data makes it clear this is happening around the world. Virtually every country with mass vaccination has had mass surges.
This is potentially very dangerous because without stopping infection among the vaccinated but temporarily blunting the risk of hospitalization and death, a variant that could still be dangerous to the unvaccinated can spread very easily among the vaccinated without making them very sick. So, they continue to spread it easily to the unvaccinated giving it a competitive advantage even if highly dangerous. And once the short-term protection fades, the vaccinated become equally at risk of more severe outcomes.
So, the relatively mild original virus in that situation could well become very dangerous and also contagious as soon as temporary immunity wears off. Hence, booster dependency every six months forever. In a normal situation the bulk of the unvaccinated population would keep less dangerous variants circulating as more get vaccinated (for something like C-19, even with good vaccines, about 25% of the population possibly, would have been the expectation, focusing on the elderly and vulnerable). Then the possibility of evolution pushing a virus to become extremely deadly to those whose vaccination protection has worn off gets minimized too.
There's another danger from leaky vaccines called Antibody Dependent Enhancement or ADE. This is when poorly designed vaccines train antibodies to recognize a virus as an intruder without being able to neutralize it. Instead of the virus being neutralized inside the antibody, the virus takes over the antibody cell and uses it as a host to start making copies of itself from. Therefore, the attacking antibody opens the door to the cell, accelerating rather than stopping the infection.
So, once new variants arrive, previous vaccine immune training becomes a liability, you then have to get an updated booster shot and become permanently drug dependent, and with every booster you get the giddy option to flirt with adverse effects all over again: death, autoimmune diseases, reactivation of dormant viruses, neurological damage, blood clotting and more.
The US VAERS system, which notoriously under reports, capturing usually only 1 to 20% of actual vaccine related adverse effects, as of August 20th reported 13,627 deaths, 55,821 hospitalizations, 5,721 anaphylactic, and 4,785 instances of Bell's Palsy…and counting. In the subsequent month plus, all these numbers have swelled further.
Leaky vaccines are therefore playing with fire. Again, this was well known by all authorities from the outset. Yet as part of the kabuki, if something goes wrong, they blame the variants, or somehow the “unvaccinated” (by some perversion of logic more reminiscent of Salem Witch Trials than medical diagnostics), and the media, bloated with billions of vaccine advertising dollars floating around will never challenge the narrative.
Though it is technically against the law in the US to advertise for vaccines (or any medicines) which have not gone through the full extent of their safety trials, this is also blithely ignored by our political masters, leaving us in dismayed awe at the extent of their inhumane indifference.
Cross Reactive Immunity
As we've said, each subsequent exposure teaches our immune system, serves as an antivirus security update. We have enough wherewithal to respond and react to the next iteration. This is called “cross reactive immunity”. So, a broad smorgasbord of global viruses keeps our immunity robust enough whether a new variant sashays in from Milan or flies out of a bat cave in China.
The true meaning of asymptomatic infection, before we started tormenting the healthy with largely useless PCR tests, was that we would encounter one of the more than 200 respiratory viruses without even noticing the infection. Our immune systems would be able to neutralize them without triggering any symptomatic response.
So, the mass PCR testing freak-out was really pointless, and in fact, new viruses actually strengthen our response. Seeking to smother the virus is also, for that reason, not an ideal response. Allowing it to fade naturally into the immunological background through the immune systems of the naturally recovered (including those, like virtually every healthy child, for whom it was so mild they didn’t even notice it) is the only desirable public health goal in this context, hence the appeal of focused protection.
If we had not had cross reactive immunity, C-19 could actually have been truly dangerous across the board. According to a study in the American Society for Clinical Investigation in April 2021, 90 to 91% of us had some level of COVID protection due to partial cross-reactive immunity from exposure to other Coronaviruses!
What Might Have Been, The Diamond Princess Cruise Ship Revelation
The word 'novel' insofar as it relates to viruses would literally mean no pre-existing cross reactive partial immunity. So, the diseases that accompanied Columbus to the Americas killed up to 95% of North and South America's indigenous population. That is what real 'novelty' does.
Today when “novel” was affixed to COVID, contextually scientists knew that referred to a newly emergent strain. The general public by contrast was invited to jump to the conclusion that this was an entirely new virus as when TB or influenza went to the Americas. Scientists stayed unforgivably mum and brandished novelty in a slapdash fashion.
This corrosive bit of wordsmanship, augmented by propaganda, innuendo, terrifying visual icons, produced a wave of fear so strong that people were irrationally lusting for a leaky jab to make them “safe” and were willing to coerce friends, neighbors and family members to similar extremes. Countries like Canada, to our chagrin, have actually made acting on such incoherent misunderstanding mandatory.
Back when we were being terrified by the collapsing Wuhanese on our TV screens, the Diamond Princess cruise ship sailed into view offering sanity and far greater serenity, had we only partaken of its lessons.
The virus circulated freely on board what was essentially, inadvertently, a floating petri dish, and produced age corrected lethality of merely 0.025% to 0.625% (that's a bad flu season). The Spanish Flu ranged between 2% and 10%. Only 26% of the passengers tested positive and despite being elderly 48% of those remained symptom free.
So, the Diamond Princess was not a floating morgue from bygone eras as it would've been if any of our assumptions and the Chinese graphics had been at all accurate. The only plausible explanation for that lack of deadliness is most people already having sufficient cross-reactive immunity from other coronaviruses or related pathogens.
This data was publicly available by February 2020. How, in the face of that, we launched “operation warp speed” to develop vaccines at the end of April 2020 beggars the imagination. So, our health authorities knowingly, opportunistically and cynically imposed lockdowns, lobbied to suspend life until we had a vaccines, though it was clear from this and other examples that were soon evident (seroprevalence studies from Dr. Ioannidis of Stanford for example), no apocalypse was forthcoming, and we primarily needed to avail of early treatment and to shield the vulnerable.
“So, if I lie to the government, it’s a felony. But if they lie to us, it’s politics.” - Bill Murray
Vitamin D and More
Viruses and the flow of mutations from them can infiltrate our immune systems best when they are temporarily suppressed through illness, environmental conditions and nutritional deficiencies. Moms telling kids to stay warm and not play in puddles were not about avoiding infection, but symptomatic infection. So, getting chilled increases the chance of symptomatic disease rather than a flitting asymptomatic infection, by temporarily suppressing our immune system.
Over and over those who have had COVID adverse effects seem to suffer from a vitamin D deficiency. UK data indicates those who suffered severe or critical disease were more than 14 times more likely to be Vitamin D deficient. Said “Vitamin” is actually an inflammation-regulating steroid hormone involved in many of the body‘s crucial processes. And so, getting exercise, topping up on vitamin D and C and Zinc which are wonderful shields in dealing with RNA viruses, not being unduly anxious, enjoying intimacy and celebration with loved ones, all keep our immune systems strong. Staff in nursing homes will tell you that as any of these are withdrawn, the knock of the Grim Reaper becomes ever more persistent.
Instead of promoting these tonics for your immune system, any reference or deference to these were immediately called “fake news”. While the planet was capsized, those with symptoms were to stay home with aspirin, waiting to see if their oxygen levels plummeted. This, when very evidently doctors clearly treat viruses, inflammation and thrombosis -- the three phases of C-19 -- and a cocktail of remedies have demonstrated remarkable results accordingly, particularly for early treatment, but also as prophylaxis.
Just a quick thought experiment: Cowering inside thinking death or vaccine are your only options or rejoicing in how mild a threat this is on the stats, and how you can increase your odds through living, loving, exuberantly engaging life, availing of plentiful, inexpensive early treatments… which of the two do you think will help you mount the more successful immune response?
And then remember how all of life became secondary to this, only this “harm” mattered! Why not outlaw sugar, driving, or stressful environments, all far greater sources of collective peril? As per the CDC, the two biggest comorbidities are obesity and anxiety, and we lock people in and flood them with 24/7 panic porn. The consistency of the stupidity is breathtaking.
Beyond the COVID Con
The assertion that “COVID numbers” should determine our future viability as a society is grotesque and unjustified.
As we were exploring, it is inane and insane to try and control people indefinitely for the “grand” purpose of avoiding being exposed to a respiratory virus. Especially when it’s one that tracks normal mortality, where the average age of death is greater than life expectancy globally, and which has a 99% recovery rate outside those above 65 with multiple chronic illnesses. And, as explained, locking people away in their homes, shutting down exercise, creating economic devastation, stoking depression, and amplifying fear and uncertainty which impairs our immune system, is hardly “medically recommended.” And by disrupting natural social and business contacts, we have actually stopped our immune system being “trained” as it normally is by natural exposure to other respiratory viruses. The harmless becomes potentially harmful as New Zealand has sadly seemed dedicated to demonstrating.
Hospitals there, were recently overflowing with children, but not from COVID, but from the RSV virus due to an inevitable “immunity debt” owing to nullifying normal life for so long. Other respiratory illnesses threaten us far more due to lockdowns and manic social distancing due to this very phenomenon. Handshakes and hugs, warmth and community are not just good for the soul, they are healthy and health-giving.
Nor was this again some unknown “discovery.” Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi blew the warning trumpets back in May 2020. YouTube obliged of course by censoring their video. Yet these eminent doctors were not doing anything other than reminding us of uncontested science, which should have been part of the common currency of anyone’s medical understanding, and in fact was, until the world collectively lost its mind in early 2020. YouTube as a scientific credibility sieve? And we all just look on as that travesty continues (as of this writing YouTube has declared it is removing all “anti-vaccine” videos, which is of course is not really what you do when you have the facts on your side and you are confident hearing them will only bolster your cause…)
The Immunity Service
Addled politicians easily swayed by pseudo-scientific nostrums that flatter their purposes we can understand, many are used to gargling out words flashed on teleprompters, pompous poses for feckless pieties. They are crucially dependent therefore on savvy, sane advisors. But when so ill advised, their penchant for opportunism can run riot and they can commission a crisis for ideological ends: redistribution, carbon net zero, social credit score systems, Orwellian podiums for utopian “dreams” – as long as you can keep the rioting citizens with pitchforks off the streets.
So, we might give a “conceptual pass” to the blabber we hear from politicians. But public health officials, international health organizations, we expected to be better trained and to not so glibly ignore hard-won pandemic wisdom enshrined in their own pandemic plans in place for precisely such an exigency, that were just cavalierly ignored and tossed aside.
And so, we are led to the fount of distortion, the “blessed” pharmaceutical companies, who manipulate public health policies by “generously” donating to the coffers of politicians, policy makers and public health agencies. What if the latticework of interconnections renders boundaries blurred, and each stakeholder in this alliance of vested interests acts as a reinforcement to the other? So, vaccines become the holy grail, and playing fast and loose with the truth to anoint them as such, works for all. Groupthink is born and regularly polished.
With such a revolving door between pharma, public health and international “health” organizations, the “unholy trinity” as some have dubbed it, naysayers, eminent critics and insightful contrarians are expunged from public discourse. Any potentially independent thinker of integrity within these citadels, bites their tongue, lest they find their career eclipsed, their public persona dealt a death blow…calumny and innuendo, magnified by media, will do the trick if actual facts are scarce.
Groupthink (see “Ash Conformity Experiments”) renders people blind and deaf, and hence even medieval kings kept court jesters, to jostle them out of their fixations and play devil’s advocate, to actually point out the “Emperor’s New Clothes” (for any unaware of the allusion, the Emperor was actually ‘naked’). No jesting allowed today though, they are purged or cowed.
Yesterday’s Precedent and Today’s Folly
The COVID lunacy is a bigger and bolder replay of the 2009 swine flu hysteria. When the European Parliament investigated WHO and the “scandal” then, the official statement to the committee criticized the influence of the pharma industry on scientists and WHO, stating it led to a situation where
“unnecessarily millions of healthy people are exposed to the risk of poorly tested vaccines.”
Sound at all familiar? And they said that was for a flu strain “vastly less harmful” than previous flu epidemics.
Very conveniently as well, at that time, the WHO just “changed” the definition of pandemic away from actual risk of disease as it had been to just “number of cases” (sound familiar again anyone?). By classifying the swine flu as a pandemic (when it factually and statistically was not), nations were compelled to implement pandemic plans and also purchase swine flu vaccines (some with disastrous long-term consequences, diseases like narcolepsy emerged clearly causally linked). Machiavelli would have been proud.
The media of course did its part to stoke fears. SPIEGEL devoted a cover story to the new “global virus” forecasting horrific potential of course. Richard Schabas, Chief Medical Officer of Ontario, watching the WHO influence crusade, suggested it become the World Hysteria Organization.
The German tabloid BILD carried a forecast from a “professor” Windorfer who spun tales of 35,000 dead in Germany to come. Later, he confessed to receiving payments from the industry (including from GSK and Novartis). And of course, glistening, next to the BILD headline, was an ad for the German Association of Pharmaceutical Companies!
As per the European Parliament report, WHO’s classifying swine flu as a pandemic (clearly remembered now as an overblown scandal) earned pharmaceutical companies $18 billion in additional revenues.
And so, we needn’t wonder why politicians and media are in thrall to this. Big Pharma spent an average of $4.7 billion per year between 1999 and 2018 on lobbying and campaign contributions, and $20 billion a year to ingratiate itself to doctors and an annual $6 billion on drug ads.
So, gripped by carefully stoked runaway hysteria, we abdicate rights, and as liberty seeps away, land into a police state, a medical tyranny, and we wake up as a commentator so deftly put it,
“…chained and milked, like a cow in a dairy barn, under the absolute custody of a modern-day Louis XIV and his royal court full of drug pushers, ideologues and militant devotees.”
This is not just fascistic, here we have feudalism primped and preened for the 21st century, underwritten by providing “immunity” as a subscription-based service.
So, we have to make our peace with facing facts. We’ve been played. And we know now how, and perhaps have a glimpse of why. And we can say it’s akin to the 2009 Swine Flu, except our merry band of perpetrators seem to have learned from their mistakes and we did not. Our immunity to learning, if we’re not careful, will be our downfall.
And we could do little better than to give heed to Martin Luther King’s counsel:
“Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue. It seeks so to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored.”
By the way, EU was preparing “vaccine passports” at least a year before the pandemic began (EU documents published in 2018, “2018 State of Vaccine Confidence” and a 2019 “Vaccination Roadmap”, a passport feasibility study in short). A training exercise (so called) predicted the pandemic weeks before it started (October 2019, World Economic Forum and Johns Hopkins University, Event 201). It referred to a zoonotic coronavirus inaugurating a worldwide pandemic – sponsored of course by Bill and Melinda Gates and GAVI the vaccine alliance. The above culminated in a “call to action.” One month later China officially recorded their first case of “COVID”.
And during this messy morass, 40 new billionaires were hatched “fighting the coronavirus” (fighting a virus with an IFR of 0.15% while abundant early treatments were actively smothered and suppressed), 9 of them vaccine manufacturers.
If all this duplicity, liberty leeching hogwash, and outright authoritarianism, ostensibly for a frigging virus, while the world we knew and aspired towards, comes apart at the seams, does not stir your fighting spirit, your spittle, your resolve, to call out this spewing distortion, misinformation and manipulation, nothing will. Humanity will either demand satisfaction, a return to accountability, sanity and government of the people, by the people and for the people, or we will deserve our fates.
Abraham Lincoln in addition to the government sentiments above also said,
“You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.”
So, time to say “no” to the further march of folly, peacefully, imaginatively, collectively and constructively. It is time to say a renewed “yes” to everything that makes life worth living.
We need evolution not revolution. We have to decide what we want to be free “for” not just free “from.” And then we need to move decisively in that direction, autonomously yes, in our individual roles yes, and yet still in concert, able to creatively collaborate attuned to humanity’s imperatives.
