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....

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...

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
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...

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
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
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...

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,...

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...

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
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
Fauci says the government is considering giving out COVID-19 ‘immunity cards’ in order to reopen the economy This is absurd. It is a well known established fact that not all get immunity. People cured of the virus have again become infected. This negates the usefulness of “immunity cards.” How can Fauci and Gates not know... Read More
Santa Clara County Public Health Officer Dr. Sarah Cody May Have Saved One Million American Lives by Ron Unz “Under a decaying and decadent political system, there is often a dangerous tendency to select public officials based upon ideological factionalism or the blandishments of self-interested lobbies. During normal times, this may lead to the sort... Read More

My dear fellow citizens, I am the virologist, specialist in coronaviruses and respiratory diseases, whose views differ significantly from the experts who advise the government on the management of the COVID-19 pandemic. The situation is dire and I would like to offer you a clear plan for getting out of the health, economic and social... Read More

Coronavirus and globalism will teach us vital lessons. The question is whether we can learn vital lessons that do not serve the ruling interest groups and ideologies. Coronavirus will teach us that a country without free national health care is severely handicapped. Millions of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. They cannot afford health care premiums,...

Using more recent data from China of the coronavirus’ infection and death rates than the Indian scientists had, “Moon of Alabama” concludes that the “pandemic” has reached its peak and will be over with in a month. If so, then Jon Rappoport was correct in the beginning that coronavirus was just another big scare hype.... Read More
61 years ago Walter M. Miller Jr. published A Canticle for Leibowitz. The story spans thousands of years as humans rebuild civilization after a devastating nuclear war. Among the episodes is a conflict between warring nomads and a settled people who rely on cunning instead of arms and introduce hoof and mouth disease into the... Read More
