The accumulated evidence is overwhelming that Covid is an orchestration the purpose of which is to eliminate human autonomy and make the concept of freedom a dirty word that will bring you Covid illness and death. As physical currency is one necessity for human autonomy, globalists are working on its replacement with digital money. Paper... Read More
“The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.” — Aristotle 2020 ended with freedom under attack and few rising to freedom’s defense. The United States is poised to enter 2021 with an illegitimate president, Biden, put in office by an election stolen in plain view. The... Read More
The focus of the worldwide public’s attention on masks, lockdowns, infection rates, and vaccines serves to prevent any investigation of Covid’s origin. Did a disease of bats or some other creature mutate so that humans became susceptible? If so, why was research on how to make pathogens more infectious going on at the University of... Read More
The West is living the worst of Orwell’s 1984 and Raspail’s Camp of the Saints
As the second decade of the 21st century comes to an end, democracy and free speech no longer exist in the Western World. In all its respects, Western civilization no longer exists. In the United States, which poses as the model for democracy, a presidential election has just been stolen in full view of everyone.... Read More
I have pointed out to you in a number of postings to this website that known cures for Covid are being suppressed. HCQ, for example, is being intentionally kept from people who as a result needlessly die from Covid. In other words, it is the intent of public health authorities for Covid to be deadly.... Read More
Is there no flu this year or is flu “the second wave of Covid?” Don’t expect any honest answer from health authorities. They have the fear running strong, so strong that people are submitting to needless lockdowns that are causing economic havoc to their lives and to mask mandates that do more harm than good....

Throughout the West, controlled explanations have replaced evidence.
You can tell that the US presidential election was stolen the same way that you can tell that Covid is being hyped to serve an agenda. The way you know is that no explanation is permitted other than the official explanation. Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and the presstitute print, TV, and NPR media censor all information... Read More
Covid is a real virus. It is a threat to a small minority of the population—primarily people with poor immune systems and comorbidities. There are inexpensive ways of boosting immune systems with supplements, such as zinc, vitimans C and D3, Beta Glucan, and NAC. But public health officials have not educated the public about the...

he Covid Deception ( ) was used in the US to justify fraud-ridden “vote by mail” in order to steal the election from President Trump. Covid’s next use is to assault civil liberty. If the Democrats’ theft of the election stands, we are likely to get the national lockdown that Biden’s Covid adviser favors. Little... Read More
Twitter, the Censor and Explainer Controller for the Deep State, removed a tweet from White House Covid adviser Dr. Scott Atlas who reported accurately that the masks people are wearing do not prevent the transmission of Covid-19. As I have reported to you from the beginning, the only mask available to the public that provides... Read More
The question each of us needs to ask ourselves, and one another, is why do we get so much misinformation about Covid from public health authorities, political authorities, and press prostitutes? We get a lot of misinformation from health practioners, because they get the bogus information from health authorities and from researchers associated with Big... Read More
This 39-minute interview with two experts is the best information available on the efficacy and dangers of masks. As I have reported from the beginning, unless the mask is N95 it provides zero protection against inhalation and exhalation of viruses: All masks raise C02 levels, reduce oxygen levels, and, if you are infected, increase the...

Ask yourself these questions: What powerful or influential interest groups benefit from overstating the Covid threat? What powerful or influential interest groups benefit from understating the Covid threat?

This will be taken down. Watch the video and save it before it is disappeared. An International Group of Lawyers Have Brought a Lawsuit that the Covid Pandemic Is an Orchestrated Hoax in Behalf of Pharmaceutical Profits and Police State Control My opinion is that a class action lawsuit is justified. However, the damages that... Read More
As readers know, I do not think that the Covid virus itself is a hoax. From the beginning I have taken the virus seriously. I reported the available information that the ability of the virus to spread threatened hospital capacity and could overwhelm the medical system. I supported limited closedowns in order to reduce the... Read More
It looks as if the Establishment has found a way to assassinate Trump! Why didn’t Trump call in Dr. Vladimir Zelenko from New York or Dr. Didier Raoult from France?! Why is Trump being given experimental drugs and not the known safe HCQ cure? To Scott Atlas, White House coronavirus advisor from Jon Rappoport October... Read More
On NPR yesterday afternoon (Oct. 2) a former Obama regime official argued for a 90% lockdown of the economy for 6 weeks and mandatory masks. He said this was the only way we can save ourselves from mass deaths that will wreck the economy worse than the 90% lockdown would. Keep in mind that the... Read More
Evidence indicates that it came from NIH funding of EcoHealth Alliance, an entity doing “gain-of-function” research in collaboration with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Many experts believe that the virus was created by that research and escaped from the Wuhan lab. Gain-of-function research involves enhancing the pathogenicity and transmissibility of pathogens. Many scientists are opposed... Read More
We have been deceived by public health authorities about Covid, partly from public authorities’ ignorance of the virus, its spread and treatment, but mainly on purpose. One reason we were intentionally deceived by public health authorities, and continue to be deceived by them, is to create a market for a Covid vaccination. There are billions... Read More
See: Also avaliable at It has been apparent from the beginning that Covid-19 was being used for agendas unrelated to public health. Big Pharma and its associates—WHO, CDC, NIH—used social media and the presstitutes to control the explanations given to the public and to censor dissenting medical professionals. More people died from being denied successful... Read More
The conflict of interest between clinical trials of drugs that determine their effectiveness and safety and the pharmaceutical industry that funds most of the trials is astonishing. Yet nothing is done about it. Two-thirds of the Federal Food and Drug Administration’s budget for evaluating prescription drugs comes from the industry that the FDA regulates. In... Read More
The United States and the Western World fared poorly in responding to Covid for two main reasons. One reason is Big Pharma and associated public health organizations such as NIH saw big profits in the virus. The response to the virus was not to protect public health but to create a mass market for a... Read More
Here is the presstitute CNN’s report on US Covid-19 cases— . According to the report, the US has the most cases of all countries and the highest number of deaths. If this is correct, it says something about our health care system and the quality of leadership at CDC and NIH. Normally, CNN is very... Read More

It is a proven undeniable fact that if given early, hydroxychloroqine (HCQ) given with azithromycin and zinc will cure coronavirus. It is a proven undeniable fact that hydroxychloroquine is safe. It is an approved medicine and has been in use for 65 years with an outstanding safety record. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is under attack for two... Read More
The claims made by so many that masks don’t work are misleading. Masks that are designed to prevent transmission of viruses do work. Those that are not designed for this purpose do not serve this purpose. Dust masks, bandanas, etc., might be helpful in blocking large droplets from an infected person’s cough or sneezing, but...

This is a very important article: It is written by a medical doctor and consists of a list of steps that have been taken by medical authorities in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Western Europe, and apparently also Russia to prevent doctors from using inexpensive hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) together with azithromycin and zinc to treat...

Coronavirus has made such a strong comeback that the governors of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut have imposed a 14-day quarantine on travelers who arrive from Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, Utah, and Texas. On Wednesday June 24 California, Texas, and Florida set new daily infection records. Overall on Wednesday... Read More
It was only last week that we heard endless BS about Covid being a hoax, and that masks, social distancing, and close downs were pointless. This week we learn that Covid is surging in more than half of the country. I have no doubt that the virus will be used in behalf of self-serving agendas.... Read More
From the sucess of preventative measures in reducing the infection rate and limiting the crisis to specific geographical areas such as New York City, we are in danger of concluding that the virus threat was a global false alarm. Indeed, this claim has now emerged in a German government report sponsored by a person in... Read More
Everyone knows that the official data about Covid-19 infections and deaths are not consistent among countries and are not complete because of inadequate testing and the unknown number of cases that are too mild to be detected. However, the reported deaths are real and even prior condition deaths are provoked by virus infection. Regardless whether... Read More
For years I have been watching what little intelligence the human race ever had slowly evaporate before my eyes as governments built up arsenals of thermonuclear and biowarfare weapons that they cannot use without destroying us all. So many important social needs are forsaken, such as a national health service, in order to acquire useless... Read More
We now hear that wearing masks is not a safety issue but a control issue imposed on us to take away our liberty. How likely is it that every state, local, and federal health official, every state governor, every government in the world is involved in a control conspiracy? How can countries locked in intense...

Many commentators are interpreting the reopenings as signaling the end of the pandemic. Many of these commentators are those who deny the reality or seriousness of Covid-19, or deny the need for, or effectiveness of, the closedowns and social distancing and the need for, or usefulness of, masks. The pandemic and the official responses have... Read More
A few years ago the British medical journal, The Lancet, published a paper touting the safety of HCQ. But this was before HCQ with zinc was found effective if used earlier enough against Covid-19. Covid-19 turned HCQ’s effectiveness into a big problem for Big Pharma’s big profits. The solution was another study by medical professionals... Read More
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought out many disturbing features of our society. Misinformation, or perhaps more accurately, disinformation, abounds in the service of agendas ranging from those who interpret the virus as a useful ploy for the construction of a police state, to Big Pharma and its allies who are moving us toward mass vaccinations,...

Some in Washington want to make China pay for the cost of the virus by reneging on US debt held by... Read More
America can’t do wthout an enemy. An enemy is what funds America’s largest industry—military spending—and an enemy provides a national security focus which holds our tower of babel together. During the Obama regime Russia was re-established as The Enemy. Trump’s intent to normalize relations with Russia, that is, to erase Russia’s enemy status, brought fire... Read More
In “freedom and democracy” America there is only official truth, and it is a lie. A person or website that speaks real truth is shunted aside as a “conspiracy theorist,” “Russian agent,” “racist,” “anti-semite,” or other such name with the purpose of discrediting the message and the messenger. For example, when I told the truth... Read More
Big Pharma and its minions such as Anthony Fauci and Robert Redfield are determined to use Covid-19 to vaccinate us all at the expense our lives and pocketbooks. They are using the media, grant-dependent professionals, medical journals, and the presstitute media to conduct a campaign of disinformation about an inexpensive and successful treatment in order...

There is a lot of conflicting information about Sweden. Some claim that “open” Sweden has no higher infection and death rates than its neighbors, a claim contradicted by this report: Others tauting the “open” Swedish model ignore that according to the Swedish Riksbank de facto the Swedish economy is closed. Sweden has experienced a sharper... Read More
A number of Americans are discrediting freedom by the irresponsible way they are acting in its name. I have in mind those attending in closely packed crowds “freedom rallies” in protest against social distancing, closedowns, and whatever else authorities are doing in the effort to lower the infection rate in order that steps can be...

The “reopenings” underway in 30 states in the US might be in words only just as the ballyhooed “open” Swedish economy is not open in fact and has been closed by non-participation. The Swedish Riksbank reports that attendance at cinema, events, and sports is off 90%. Business at restaurants and cafes is down 70%, and... Read More
We have been subjected to much nonsensical disinformation that Sweden has kept its economy open and is faring no worse in infections than countries with closed economies and without the economic consequences of closed-downed economies. The fact of the matter is that de facto Sweden’s economy is closed and is doing no better than anyone’s... Read More
What do we make of it all? I just read an article in the New York Times that reports that President Trump lied and hid from the public the severity of the Covid-19 pandemic . On the other side, I encounter endless Internet rage that Covid-19 is a hoax, that New York city’s hospitals are... Read More
The discussion of coronavirus has taken some sharp turns. One such turn is the claim that the mortality rate is not high enough to justify shutdowns. But the mortality rate is not the reason for the shutdowns. The purpose of the closedowns is to reduce the exponential rate of infection. Covid-19 is much more contagious... Read More

Many uninformed people are agitating for reopening the economy. That, of course, needs to be done, but not in the unprepared way that it is being done. Widespread distribution of masks of the N95 standard are a precondition for reopening, but no preparation has been made. The masks are necessary, because the dominant mode of... Read More
Many have expressed concerns that coronavirus will be used, as 9/11 and the hoax “war on terror” were, to further expand the American police state dystopia. But we were doomed by the digital revolution to a controlled existence regardless of 9/11 and Covid-19. The digital revolution provides government and corporations with unlimited and unaccountable ability... Read More
In Florida pressure to reopen beaches, vacation rentals, arcades, and restaurants is coming from the tourist industry.

Traders locked into delivery contracts... Read More
Every country with the exception of Sweden found it necessary to close down at least part of the economy in order to prevent the highly infectious virus from overwhelming their medical care systems.
