Is it Bad to Say I Told You So? …I Guess I Just Did.

Since May of 2020 I have been writing occasionally about the things I’ve read, seen, heard, discovered, and learned about COVID, the PCR tests, the “vaccines”, and the politics that have been thoroughly mixed into every part of the pandemic.

I learned early on, by reading the CDC literature, that a virus was never isolated by any definition or scientific standard. Jon Rappoport, a veteran investigative journalist in the medical and health field, made this clear in his research. They didn’t have a virus per se, they had a soup of goop pulled out of someone’s nasal cavity which they would mix with another soup they make in their laboratories to see if any cells get “infected” by something in the combined soup bowl. Then they would amplify it millions of times using the PCR test until they saw something that indicated a person may have the virus. A case. A case didn’t have to show symptoms and suddenly, belying all previous science, asymptomatic people were a danger to others.

Throughout 2020 cases were blowing up around the world. Cases became synonymous with infection. Everything modern medicine knew about viruses miraculously changed when public health married partisan politics and “we’ve never done anything like this before” became blanket policy. Lockdowns, masks, and separation led to panic, division, anger, and tribalism. The flip flops seemed to arrive weekly. “No need for masks,” they said. “Everyone should wear a mask,” they then insisted. “Kid’s are very low risk for infection or transmission,” they assured us. “Mask your kids, separate them, no recess, no mingling, we can’t have them infecting their teachers” they demanded. Little of it made any sense and even less was corroborated by the science. The pre-2020 science that is… In 2020 common sense and science became a conspiracy stance and syunce.

They did everything in their power, using every means available, to convince America the draconian policies they were implementing were effective and necessary, but after a year and a half the data said otherwise.

The beautiful thing about truth is it does eventually find its way to the surface no matter how hard those who fear it try to bury it. The beautiful thing about the technological age we live in is it’s much harder to completely hide the truth, which means a campaign of misinformation and disinformation must also be implemented to keep the masses from paying attention to those “other information sources” where the truth tends to bubble up and that happened too.

Today Mr. Rappoport once again blew away the smoke and shattered the mirrors of big tech, big media, and big pharma with verifiable, documented proof that what he and others have been reporting, and I have been sharing, is true and the general public has been fed a very sophisticated and narrated mixed cocktail of truth and fiction this entire time. Manufactured by politicians and politically motivated public health officials, perpetuated by mainstream news media, and ultimately parroted and defended by decent people who STILL want to believe the leaders in these arenas would never lie to them.

I apologize for that long lead-in. But sometimes tooting your own horn feels too good to pass up.

Here’s the latest:

CDC/FDA confess: they had no virus when they concocted the test for the virus
by Jon Rappoport

The CDC has issued a document that bulges with interesting and devastating admissions.

The release is titled, “07/21/2021: Lab Alert: Changes to CDC RT-PCR for SARS-CoV-2 Testing.” [1] It begins explosively:

“After December 31, 2021, CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the assay first introduced in February 2020 for detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. CDC is providing this advance notice for clinical laboratories to have adequate time to select and implement one of the many FDA-authorized alternatives.”

Many people believe this means the CDC is giving up on the PCR test as a means of “detecting the virus.” I don’t think the CDC is saying that at all.

They’re saying the PCR technology will continue to be used, but they’re replacing what the test is looking FOR with a better “reference sample.” A better marker. A better target. A better piece of RNA supposedly derived from SARS-CoV-2.

CDC/FDA are confessing there has been a PROBLEM with the PCR test which has been used to detect the virus, starting in February of 2020—right up to this minute.

In other words, the millions and millions of “COVID cases” based on the PCR test in use are all suspect.

To confirm this, the CDC document links to an FDA release titled, “SARS-CoV-2 Reference Panel Comparative Data.” [2] [2a] Here is a killer quote:

“During the early months of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, clinical specimens [of the virus] were not readily available to developers of IVDs [in vitro diagnostics] to detect SARS-CoV-2. Therefore, the FDA authorized IVDs based on available data from contrived samples generated from a range of SARS-CoV-2 material sources (for example, gene specific RNA, synthetic RNA, or whole genome viral RNA) for analytical and clinical performance evaluation.[Emphasis added] While validation using these contrived specimens provided a measure of confidence in test performance at the beginning of the pandemic, it is not feasible to precisely compare the performance of various tests that used contrived specimens because each test validated performance using samples derived from different gene specific, synthetic, or genomic nucleic acid sources.”

Translation: We, at the CDC, did not have a specimen of the SARS-CoV-2 virus when we concocted the PCR test for SARS-CoV-2. Yes, it’s unbelievable, right? And that’s the test we’ve been using all along. So we CONTRIVED samples of the virus. We fabricated. We lied. We made up [invented] synthetic gene sequences and we SAID these sequences HAD TO BE close to the sequence of SARS-CoV-2, without having the faintest idea of what we were doing, because, again, we didn’t have an actual specimen of the virus. We had no proof THERE WAS something called SARS-CoV-2.

This amazing FDA document goes to say the Agency has granted emergency approval to 59 different PCR tests since the beginning of the (fake) pandemic. 59. And, “…it is not feasible to precisely compare the performance of various tests that used contrived specimens because each test validated performance using samples derived from different gene specific, synthetic, or genomic nucleic acid sources.”

Translation: Each of the 59 different PCR tests for SARS-CoV-2 told different lies and concocted different fabrications about the genetic makeup of the virus—the virus we didn’t have. Obviously, then, these tests would give unreliable results.

BUT, don’t worry, be happy, because NOW, the CDC and the FDA say, they really do have actual virus samples of SARS-CoV-2 from patients; they have better targets for the PCR test, and labs should start gearing up for the new and improved tests.

In other words, they were lying THEN, but they’re not lying NOW. They were “contriving,” but now they’re telling the truth.

If you believe that, I have Fountain of Youth water for sale, extracted from the lead-contaminated system of Flint, Michigan.

Here, once again, I report virology’s version of “we isolated the virus”: [[3] thru [3i]]

They have a soup they make in their labs.

This soup contains human and monkey cells, toxic chemicals and drugs, and all sorts of other random genetic material. Because the cells start to die, the researchers ASSUME a bit of mucus from a patient they dropped in the soup is doing the killing, and THE VIRUS must be the killer agent in the mucus.

This assumption is entirely unwarranted. The drugs and chemicals could be doing the cell-killing, and the researchers are also starving the cells of vital nutrients.

There is no proof that SARS-CoV-2 is in the soup, or that it is doing the cell-killing, or that it exists.

Yet the researchers call cell-death “isolation of the virus.”

To say this is a non-sequitur is a vast understatement. In their universe, “We have the virus buried in a soup in a dish in the lab” equals, “We’ve separated the virus from all surrounding material.”

Virology equals “how to spread bullshit for a living and scare the world.”

Other than that, it’s perfect.

Case vs Infection – The COVID Con

with one comment

Every state in the union is enforcing some sort of lockdown or restriction of its people due to “extremely high case counts” for COVID-19.

I have explained many times in social media posts and discussions with people I know how the case count alone is a meaningless metric and basing government policy decisions on this statistic alone is an example of profound ignorance at best and malicious intent at worst.

Jon Rappaport, an investigative journalist who has written articles on politics, health, media, culture and art for LA Weekly, Spin Magazine, Stern, Village Voice, Nexus, CBS Healthwatch, and reported on major television news networks over the past 30 years, has decided to take a deep dive into the COVID-19 data, the way its been reported by the media, and the confusion surrounding the pandemic since it was first announced.

Here are some of his findings as posted on his personal website, where he clearly cites credible sources including official sources such as the CDC, WHO, and NIH.

The lockdowns are based on high levels of COVID cases.

“We have so many new cases, we have to lock down.”

This claim is based on the diagnostic PCR test.

The more tests you do, the more positive results come up. A positive result is taken to mean: the person is infected with the virus.

But overwhelmingly, these so-called “infected” people have no symptoms. They are healthy. Nevertheless, each one is called a “COVID case.” This is absurd.

A case should mean the person has clinical symptoms; he is sick.

These people aren’t sick, and there is no indication they will get sick.

So…expand testing, test millions of people, obtain results claiming “infection,” call all these healthy people “cases,” and order lock downs.


You need one piece of background here.

The PCR test is run in “cycles.” Each cycle is a quantum leap in amplifying or magnifying the original tiny, tiny piece of material taken from the patient’s swab sample. It’s like blowing up a small photo to an amazing size.

The question is: how many cycles should the PCR test be run at? This is vital issue, because the number of cycles changes the result.

July 16, 2020, podcast, “This Week in Virology” [1]: Tony Fauci makes a point of saying the PCR COVID test is useless and misleading when the test is run at “35 cycles or higher.” A positive result, indicating infection, cannot be accepted or believed.

Here, in techno-speak, is an excerpt from Fauci’s key quote (starting at about the 4-minute mark [1]): “…If you get [perform the test at] a cycle threshold of 35 or more…the chances of it being replication-competent [aka accurate] are miniscule…you almost never can culture virus [detect a true positive result] from a 37 threshold cycle…even 36…”

Too many cycles, and the test will turn up all sorts of irrelevant material that will be wrongly interpreted as relevant.

That’s called a false positive.

What Fauci failed to say on the video is: the FDA, which authorizes the test for public use, recommends the test should be run up to 40 cycles. Not 35.

Therefore, all labs in the US that follow the FDA guideline are knowingly or unknowingly participating in fraud. Fraud on a monstrous level, because…

Millions of Americans are being told they are infected with the virus on the basis of a false positive result, and…

The total number of COVID cases in America—which is based on the test—is a gross falsity.

The lockdowns and other restraining measures are based on these fraudulent case numbers.

Let me back up and run that by you again. Fauci says the test is useless when it’s run at 35 cycles or higher. The FDA says run the test up to 40 cycles, in order to determine whether the virus is there. 

See the problem?

On December 3, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and the Florida state Department of Health announced that they are requiring labs to report number of PCR test cycles in all COVID tests. Rappaport continues:

COVID testing labs never tell doctors or patients how the PCR test is run.

This means the number of cycles is a secret.

A cycle is a step up in amplification of the tissue sample taken from the patient.

As even Tony Fauci has asserted, tests run at 35 cycles or above are useless. They’re also misleading. The results tend to be positive, meaning the patient is “infected with the virus.” But this is false.

However, as I’ve also reported, the CDC and the FDA recommend that the test should be run at up to 40 cycles.[2] [3] This is a direct hustle. It ensures false positives and higher COVID case numbers—used as justification for lockdowns.

Now, the state of Florida is doing something unheard of. It’s demanding that labs report the “cycle threshold” for every test they run.

Here is the relevant wording in a release from the Florida governor, Ron DeSantis, and the state Department of Health, dated December 3, 2020 [4]:

“Cycle threshold (CT) values and their reference ranges, as applicable, must be reported by laboratories to FDOH via electronic laboratory reporting or by fax immediately.”

“If your laboratory is not currently reporting CT values and their reference ranges, the lab should begin reporting this information to FDOH within seven days of the date of this memorandum.”

We can assume there is only one reason for this order. The Florida governor and the Department of Health are aware that tests run at 35 cycles or higher are useless and misleading, and they want to stop this crime.

Imagine what happens if the trend of “new COVID cases” in Florida soon takes a sudden dip and keeps on falling—because labs are finally telling the truth. Because their deceptive test results are being rejected. The con will be exposed.

And imagine other states following Florida’s example.

People can’t make good choices for themselves, their families, or their communities if they are uninformed or misinformed. The politicization of COVID, the use of it to restrict the freedoms of American citizens, and the division it has and is creating is, in my opinion, being done with malicious intent by powers within America and beyond our borders who wish for global dominance and rule and see the United States as the one obstacle in their path.

Standing for truth isn’t always easy or popular, in fact it’s more often neither, but we are beyond the time for complacence. It’s time to choose where you’ll stand, but do so on verifiable trusted sources of information.

Hint: It isn’t in the established media of old.
