Dr. Lee Merritt Debunks Covid Propaganda

Dr. Lee Merritt (Hieb) is a past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and a spinal specialist orthopedic surgeon. Here, in “SARS-CoV2 and the Rise of Medical Technocracy” she debunks and dismantles many of the government and media’s lies and propaganda regarding the ongoing Covid-19 fiasco.

This is a BitChute video. Here is that video’s page if you want to leave a comment. (The talk, at the August 2020 conference of Doctors for Disaster Preparedness, was also posted on YouTube by apparently the Doctors for Disaster Preparedness group. We’ll see how long that video lasts on YouTube. It’s still there.)

A Soviet Moment

Becky Akers has a post on her “Soviet Moment.” (I know I have had many “Soviet moments” in the Age of Covid-1984, quite frankly.)

My Soviet Moment by Becky Akers

A tailor’s shop on our block features a large, plate glass window through which we glimpse the tailor—a cheery and maskless soul who smiles at us each day from his empty store (we usually stroll past during the morning rush; I doubt many folks stop for alterations on their way to work). I haven’t spotted a mask around his neck, either, and the ubiquitous signs demanding muzzles that adorn all storefronts are absent from his. Could he be a dissident refusing to cooperate with the plandemic?

When he waved to me this morning, I turned in at his door. And to my vast disappointment, a mask instantly materialized in his hand.

“No, no!” I grinned at him. “You don’t need to put that on for me, for heaven’s sake, I was stopping in to say how much I appreciate your naked face!”

His eyes crinkled above the muzzle; I’m sure he was beaming. But his gaze never left the window behind me.

“So nice to see your smile every day,” I babbled as he stepped from behind his counter and herded me towards the door, eyes fixed on the window.

And then I understood: he very much feared someone would see a maskless woman in his shop and report him.

What have we become?

The Covid Facts and Science, Not Propaganda

This whole “pandemic” thing, this scamdemic, is going on too long now. “Public health” “experts” are warning that the next few months will be even worse. The mainstream media and it’s gullible true believers and stasi “Karens” are going to be even more hysterical, panicked, and paranoid.

Government and media fear-mongering is the real pandemic, in my view.

Anyway, I wanted to list some of the most important points here, some of which I’ve discusses here before, that we’re not hearing from mainstream “news” media.

1. “We’re ‘Carriers’.” The alleged point of the fascist lockdowns, business closures and ineffective, useless masks is that “we don’t want to give it to Grandma” because supposedly we can be “carriers” and not even know it.

Most of the people who are dying supposedly from or with Covid are mainly very elderly people in nursing homes fighting serious illnesses like heart disease or kidney disease. Average age of those dying is about 82. If someone is elderly but not battling a serious illness then chances are that he or she will recover from Covid.

From the Examiner:

Maria Van Kerkhove, head of the WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit, said during a press conference on Monday that it is “very rare” for asymptomatic people to widely spread coronavirus. Van Kerkhove said contact tracing of those who tested positive found that very few asymptomatic carriers gave the virus to others.

“From the data we have, it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual,” she said. “We have a number of reports from countries who are doing very detailed contact tracing. They’re following asymptomatic cases. They’re following contacts. And they’re not finding secondary transmission onward. It’s very rare.”

They followed “very detailed contact tracing” of asymptomatic carriers. And regarding a “surge” in “cases” (i.e. people testing positive for coronavirus) we are hearing about, many test results are false positives.The testing is not reliable.

Worse, officials have been caught omitting negative test results to report 98% positive results when it was really 9.4%, and people who had never been tested are being sent notices that they have tested positive!

Some 40% to 80% of those who did test positive for coronavirus are asymptomatic.

And this article references research that shows that many Covid-19 cases may not even be infectious.

People who are symptomatic should just STAY HOME and shouldn’t go to doctors office or somewhere to get tested. Unless the symptoms are so severe that you are choking and drowning in fluid in the lungs. Which is probably not the case for many needless hospitalizations which are occurring because the fear-mongers are terrifying the masses to run to the hospital at the first sign of a cough.

2. How many people are really dying of Covid? Supposedly the Covid death count is over 200,000 in the U.S. But, on their “provisional death counts” weekly updates page, the CDC admits: “For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.” That means that the people as mentioned above who are dying were already dying of the preexisting serious illness they already had and they died sooner than they would have because of having the virus.

And the CDC changed its guidelines to count non-Covid deaths as Covid deaths. Coronavirus Szaress Dr. Deborah Birx confirmed this when she said:

There are other countries, that if you have a pre-existing condition, and let’s say the virus called you to go to the ICU (intensive care unit) and then have a heart or kidney problem…Some countries are recording that as a kidney issue, or a heart issue, and not a COVID-19 death….we are counting that as a Covid-19 death.

So there are many people who have been dying of their preexisting heart disease or kidney disease, or obesity or diabetes, etc., but if they happened to tested positive for the coronavirus they are counted as a “Covid-19 death.”

This over-counting is going on in most of the states based on the CDC’s loose guidelines. For instance, the Freedom Foundation concluded that Washington state’s Department of Health “reported COVID-19 death total is inflated by as much as 13 percent.”

From the April 30th, 2020 Boston Globe: “Officials are now classifying as infected those who were likely stricken by the virus but did not have the diagnosis confirmed through a laboratory test.

April 21 New York Times: “New York City, already a world epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, sharply increased its death toll by more than 3,700 victims on Tuesday, after officials said they were now including people who had never tested positive for the virus but were presumed to have died of it.”

Are you getting the idea now?

May 27th, NPR reports that the coronavirus is less lethal than once thought.

For further cheating, officials have also been counting non-disease-related deaths, such as motorcycle accident deaths and gunshot deaths, as “Covid-19 deaths.”

Project Veritas uncovered how officials are writing “Covid” as cause of death on just about ALL death certificates. And there are the governors who sent Covid patients into nursing homes mixed with the general nursing home residents.

3. What about the children? As with those Covid deaths in elderly people who were already dying or suffering from preexisting serious illnesses or conditions, the same goes for younger people, including children.

A study published in late August in the British Medical Journal looked at 69,516 Covid patients in the U.K., “651 were aged under 19 and 225 were aged under 12 months.”

The Spectator goes on:

Most were successfully treated on hospital wards but 116 went on to be admitted to critical care and 58 ended up on mechanical ventilation. In 52 cases, the patients were judged to be suffering from Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome associated with Covid-19 (MIS-C), a condition similar to Kawasaki disease and Toxic Shock Syndrome, that was first identified in London hospitals in March. Six children went on to die. Three were aged under 28 days, had been born very premature and had complex congenital anomalies and bacterial sepsis. The other three who died were in the 15-18 age bracket, two of whom had profound neurodisabilities which compromised their respiratory systems. The other had a suppressed immune system as a result of cancer treatment and was also suffering from bacterial sepsis. No children without a serious comorbidity of an additional illness died, and neither did any child between the ages of 28 days and 15 years.

So of those child deaths, they were all already seriously ill.

Speaking of that “Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome associated with Covid-19, a condition similar to Kawasaki disease and Toxic Shock Syndrome,” this article on the Children’s Health Defense notes that such a condition could be caused by all the vaccines that are inflicted on small children at such a young age.

And as long as I’m mentioning vaccine adverse reactions, how much of the Covid “surge” or “second wave” now in October 2020 are illnesses being caused by reactions to the flu vaccine?

This study found that the flu vaccine led to a 36% increase in risk of contracting coronavirus. And, according to the National Vaccine Information Center,

Using the MedAlerts search engine, as of July 31, 2020, there have been more than 176,294 reports of influenza vaccine reactions, hospitalizations, injuries and deaths following influenza vaccinations made to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), including 1,748 related deaths, 14,062 hospitalizations, and 3,558 related disabilities…As of September 1, 2020, there have been 6,441 claims filed in the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) for injuries and deaths following influenza vaccination, including 188 deaths and 6,256 serious injuries…

And what makes this even worse are fascists like Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker mandating that people age 6 months (!) to 30 years must get a flu vaccine. But I digress.

Anyway, as of September 18th, the CDC says there were 121 reported “SARS-CoV-2–associated deaths” of children younger than age 21 in the U.S. Note they are Covid-“associated” deaths, not that they died only of Covid.

The CDC states:

Among these 121 decedents, 91 (75%) had an underlying medical condition,* 79 (65%) died after admission to a hospital, and 39 (32%) died at home or in the emergency department (ED). These data show that nearly three quarters of SARS-CoV-2–associated deaths among infants, children, adolescents, and young adults have occurred in persons aged 10–20 years, with a disproportionate percentage among young adults aged 18–20 years

To compare with 2019-2020 seasonal influenza, the CDC says that there were 188 “reported pediatric flu deaths,” of children ages 17 or younger.

Tens of thousands of people die in the U.S. of seasonal influenza every year. Why are we not hysterical over this? Why do we not mandate masks and lockdowns every flu season from September to April? (Those are rhetorical questions, obviously.)

But are child “carriers” of Covid spreading it to parents, Grandma and others? Nope. See Coronavirus: No Child Known to Have Passed COVID-19 to Adults, Global Study Finds, School Children Don’t Spread Coronavirus, French Study Shows, and Children Are Not Covid-19 Super-Spreaders: Time to Go Back to School. (And go back to everything else!)

4. What is the real Covid-19 death rate? Or Case Fatality Rate, or Infection Fatality Rate. A Stanford University study concluded in April that COVID-19 has “an infection fatality rate of 0.12-0.2%,” and a University of Miami study found the infection fatality rate at .17%. That’s one-tenth of one percent. Or, a tenth of one percent of the people who have the virus will actually die form it. That means literally a 99.9% survival rate! (Are we repeatedly hearing that from government officials and mainstream media propagandists? Nope.)

More specifically by age, the recent CDC estimate for Covid survival rates was: “0-19 years old, 99.997 percent; 20-49 years old, 99.98 percent; 50-69 years, 99.5 percent; and 70 years old or older, 94.6 percent.”

In late February “Doctors” Anthony Fauci, Clifford Lane and Robert Redfield wrote an article on the New England Journal of Medicine, predicting that “the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%)…”

In other words, those bureaucrats already knew before all the lockdowns that this Covid pandemic would probably be on par with the seasonal flu.

So what does that tell us about “Doctor” Anthony Fauci (the Hillary-loving Fauci, that is) and all the claptrap and fear-mongering since late February?

5. What about the face masks?

Dr. Mike Ryan of the World Health Organization stated in March, “There is no specific evidence to suggest that the wearing of masks by the mass population has any potential benefit. In fact, there’s some evidence to suggest the opposite in the misuse of wearing a mask properly or fitting it properly.

At the same press conference, WHO epidemiologist Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove said, “In the community, we do not recommend the use of wearing masks unless you yourself are sick and as a measure to prevent onward spread from you if you are ill…The masks that we recommend are for people who are at home and who are sick and for those individuals who are caring for those people who are home that are sick.”

And also, most masks that are not N95 masks do not prevent the transmission of the virus, because the virus is too small and still gets through.

The Guardian:

A properly fitted N95 respirator will block 95% of tiny air particles – down to 0.3 micron in diameter, which are the hardest to catch – from reaching the wearer’s face. But surgical masks, designed to protect patients from a surgeon’s respiratory droplets, aren’t effective at blocking particles smaller than 100 microns, according to the mask maker 3M. A Covid-19 particle is smaller than 0.1 micron, according to South Korean researchers, and can pass through a surgical mask.

Research from other nations hit hard by the virus confirms the concern. A report published earlier this month examined data from two hospitals in South Korea, and found that surgical masks “seem to be ineffective in preventing the dissemination” of coronavirus particles. A 2013 Chinese study found that twice as many health workers, 17%, contracted a respiratory illness if they wore only a surgical mask while treating sick patients, compared with 7% who continuously used an N95, per a study in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

Could these masks be harmful? Such as causing oxygen deprivation? See this study published at NIH, which states,

This study was undertaken to evaluate whether the surgeons’ oxygen saturation of hemoglobin was affected by the surgical mask or not during major operations…Our study revealed a decrease in the oxygen saturation of arterial pulsations (SpO2) and a slight increase in pulse rates compared to preoperative values in all surgeon groups. The decrease was more prominent in the surgeons aged over 35.

Stanford University:

N95 masks are estimated to reduce oxygen intake by anywhere from 5 percent to 20 percent. That’s significant, even for a healthy person. It can cause dizziness and lightheadedness. For healthy people, these side effects are temporary and usually not an issue. But if you are severely ill and are continuously wearing an N95 mask for several hours at a time, it can damage the lungs.

Oxygen deprivation or hypoxia can harm cognitive functioning. Not good.

According to Harvard Medical School doctors and nurses,

We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.

So why the mask fetish from our undeservedly respected public officials?

Target Liberty discussed the real psy-op aspect of the mask phenomenon in the WHO’s “Advice on the use of masks in the context of COVID-19.”

There, the WHO mentions “reduced stigmatization”… “Making people feel they can play a role”…”public acceptance” …”psychological acceptance,” etc. The masks are a psy-op, folks.

So really, it’s a psy-op by the bureaucrats and their obedient media stenographers, for control, for submission from us serfs.

And after 8 or 9 months of this horrifying Twilight Zone crap, officials and their brain-dead media repeaters are promoting a “second wave” and “surge” in cases, more testing and more false positives, more invasive contact tracing and mask mandates.

How much more of this tyranny can you take?
