Thomas DiLorenzo: The “Vaccine” is Environmentalism’s Magic Bullet
And J.P.E. Harper-Scott: Why I Left Academia.
Someone posted a video of Bill Maher recently telling the government, media and medical establishment to cut it out with the “bunch of crap,” the lies about Covid. For a year now, those propagandists had been talking out of both sides of their mouths, contradicting themselves, and scaring the bejesus out of people, all for a flu or cold virus that at least half of the people who have the virus have no symptoms, a virus with literally a 99.98% survival rate.
Maher brought up several polls in his talk. One poll found that the young people who have little or no risk of dying from Covid-19 are the most afraid, while the older people who have much more risk feel less fear of “re-socializing.”
Do you feel nervous about the prospect of interacting with people socially again?

Maher brought up the Gallup poll that found that Democrats were the most ignorant about the chances of someone’s having to be hospitalized with Covid. The correct answer is supposedly between 1 and 5%, according to Gallup, but 41% of Democrat respondents said the chance was 50% or higher. However, 28% of Republicans and 35% of Independents/Other also erroneously thought that people had a 50% chance of being hospitalized with Covid.
I think we can blame the fear-mongering bureaucrats and their ignorant “news” media stenographers for molding gullible people and terrorizing them to needlessly fear passersby and spray doorknobs and everything else with disinfectant spray.
And the mask wearing out there has become a cult. People are engaged in ritualistic cult-like behaviors now. It’s very unbecoming, quite frankly. Many people now, mainly those on the political left, feel comforted by their face-covering suffocation mask, as they seem to believe every word of their beloved Fauci.
But the “news” media have been real terror mongers. I think it’s mainly the people on the left and the rulers of the blue states who have been True Believers in the Covid scam. Sadly, the sheeple with their CNN and MSNBC and social media, they haven’t been able to see through the media’s 24/7 fear mongering, 24/7 hysteria, 24/7 panic. It’s like they are hypnotized. The True Believers bought the “Trump-Russia collusions story even though that was totally false, and they believe that January 6th was an actual “insurrection” that wasn’t.
And regarding the Covid vaccines that aren’t vaccines but pharmaceutical drugs that are fraudulently being promoted as “vaccines,” whose purpose is to reduce symptoms and not to prevent infection or transmission, there are many on both the left and non-left who are True Believers in such “vaccines.” But it’s the people on the left who are the ones who mainly mock “anti-vaxxers.” I heard a panelist on Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me say that “anti-vaxxers like disease.” Not a particularly good understanding of that debate there. And another person on the show had referred to the non-lockdown states as “the dumb states.” Oh, well. So much for government schools in USSA.
And now we’re getting Nazi Germany-like “vaccine passports”? Already the U.S. military is coercing unsuspecting citizens into getting these medical treatments, and they are “targeting the young,” the very group of people least in danger of Covid-19! (Hmm, do we really need the U.S. military anymore?)
And Maher made a passing reference to Republicans who should own “climate change denial,” the liberals should own the Covid crap and so on. “Climate change” is another issue in which the people on the left are True Believers.
But the climate denial is to do with alleged human-caused climate change, not that there is climate change. Yes, humans and industry have contributed to pollution, but haven’t actually changed the climate. The climate has been changing naturally, with its natural effects, since the world began, so for hundreds of millions of years there have been warming trends and ice ages, and warming trends and ice ages, and so on. One of the main reasons why the climate charlatans have fooled so many in recent times is the computer models, that have turned out to be incorrect. Just like those early Covid computer models. How’d that turn out for us? But I digress.
As I wrote recently, the Covid lies started early on when the CDC changed the guidelines as to what constitutes a “Covid death” to include non-Covid deaths as “Covid deaths.” They also allowed the states “public health” commissars to write down as a “Covid death” someone who was “likely” and “presumed” to have Covid regardless of laboratory confirmation.
And speaking of laboratory confirmation, we also know that the testing has been extremely flawed throughout this whole scamdemdic, testing at too high a cycle threshold which caused false positives. The W.H.O. then changed their guidelines to reduce the cycle number to “weed out false positives,” which they announced only hours after Biden was inaugurated. Hmmm.
Any and all “public health” bureaucrats and governors and other bureaucrats who have been knowingly disseminating false information to terrorize the masses, and any media flunkies who have been knowingly repeating the propaganda over the past year need to be criminally charged with fraud, terrorism, and crimes against humanity. And that’s what I think about all that.
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!
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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?
