Key Points
Question Is SARS-CoV-2 messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccination associated with risk of myocarditis?

Findings In a cohort study of 23.1 million residents across 4 Nordic countries, risk of myocarditis after the first and second doses of SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines was highest in young males aged 16 to 24 years after the second dose. For young males receiving 2 doses of the same vaccine, data were compatible with between 4 and 7 excess events in 28 days per 100 000 vaccinees after second-dose BNT162b2, and between 9 and 28 per 100 000 vaccinees after second-dose mRNA-1273.

Meaning The risk of myocarditis in this large cohort study was highest in young males after the second SARS-CoV-2 vaccine dose, and this risk should be balanced against the benefits of protecting against severe COVID-19 disease.

Abstract
Importance Reports of myocarditis after SARS-CoV-2 messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccination have emerged.

Objective To evaluate the risks of myocarditis and pericarditis following SARS-CoV-2 vaccination by vaccine product, vaccination dose number, sex, and age.

Design, Setting, and Participants Four cohort studies were conducted according to a common protocol, and the results were combined using meta-analysis. Participants were 23 122 522 residents aged 12 years or older. They were followed up from December 27, 2020, until incident myocarditis or pericarditis, censoring, or study end (October 5, 2021). Data on SARS-CoV-2 vaccinations, hospital diagnoses of myocarditis or pericarditis, and covariates for the participants were obtained from linked nationwide health registers in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.

Exposures The 28-day risk periods after administration date of the first and second doses of a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine, including BNT162b2, mRNA-1273, and AZD1222 or combinations thereof. A homologous schedule was defined as receiving the same vaccine type for doses 1 and 2.

Main Outcomes and Measures Incident outcome events were defined as the date of first inpatient hospital admission based on primary or secondary discharge diagnosis for myocarditis or pericarditis from December 27, 2020, onward. Secondary outcome was myocarditis or pericarditis combined from either inpatient or outpatient hospital care. Poisson regression yielded adjusted incidence rate ratios (IRRs) and excess rates with 95% CIs, comparing rates of myocarditis or pericarditis in the 28-day period following vaccination with rates among unvaccinated individuals.

Results Among 23 122 522 Nordic residents (81% vaccinated by study end; 50.2% female), 1077 incident myocarditis events and 1149 incident pericarditis events were identified. Within the 28-day period, for males and females 12 years or older combined who received a homologous schedule, the second dose was associated with higher risk of myocarditis, with adjusted IRRs of 1.75 (95% CI, 1.43-2.14) for BNT162b2 and 6.57 (95% CI, 4.64-9.28) for mRNA-1273. Among males 16 to 24 years of age, adjusted IRRs were 5.31 (95% CI, 3.68-7.68) for a second dose of BNT162b2 and 13.83 (95% CI, 8.08-23.68) for a second dose of mRNA-1273, and numbers of excess events were 5.55 (95% CI, 3.70-7.39) events per 100 000 vaccinees after the second dose of BNT162b2 and 18.39 (9.05-27.72) events per 100 000 vaccinees after the second dose of mRNA-1273. Estimates for pericarditis were similar.

Conclusions and Relevance Results of this large cohort study indicated that both first and second doses of mRNA vaccines were associated with increased risk of myocarditis and pericarditis. For individuals receiving 2 doses of the same vaccine, risk of myocarditis was highest among young males (aged 16-24 years) after the second dose. These findings are compatible with between 4 and 7 excess events in 28 days per 100 000 vaccinees after BNT162b2, and between 9 and 28 excess events per 100 000 vaccinees after mRNA-1273. This risk should be balanced against the benefits of protecting against severe COVID-19 disease.

Inject hundreds of millions with their 'experimental' shit first THEN do studies on the results.

That's what big medicine has KNOWINGLY and INTENTIONALLY done to us, never EVER forget it!

NIH Helped Chinese Scientist Delete Data Pointing to a Lab Leak | CLIP | Truth Over News

June 2021, an American scientist named Jesse Bloom approached the heads of the National Institutes of Health with startling information. He’d discovered a series of deleted viral sequences that appeared to prove that the COVID-19 outbreak started earlier than reported by Chinese authorities. His findings also meant that the outbreak could not have originated at the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan, which remains the favored theory of natural origin proponents. But when Bloom presented his data to NIH heads Francis Collins and Anthony Fauci, along with Fauci-funded scientists Kristian Andersen and Robert Garry, Bloom was immediately subjected to intense pressure to remove his findings from the public sphere. - - -

Are they trying to make sure the vaccinated die at home?

It keeps it out of the public eye, temporarily. Emphasis on temporary.

I recreated my analysis on the Oversight and Judiciary Committees’ memo to the US Dept of Health back in January 2022, pertaining to the highly disturbing revelations found in the released NIH emails via the FOIA. Representatives Jim Jordan and James Comer had some serious questions for Collins and Fauci at the NIH, as it pertains to the true origin of covid, and why the NIH chose to hide all of this information from us.

These emails are DAMNING, and confirm that many of the world’s top virologists and biologists believed, based on many factors, that C19 was created in a lab. As well as how Fauci and Collins covered up this reality from the public. Given what we know now via allegations from Russia and China, ie the US DoD funded biolabs in Ukraine, and the supplementary action taken by the Russian military; this piece of the puzzle makes all the more sense.

You seriously need to read this entire memo. It’s only 2.5 pages and a few emails, but I will outline the main snippets and translate the political/corporate speak.

Jordan and Comer’s thesis for the memo is as follows:

“Dr. Fauci was warned of two things: (1) the potential that COVID-19 leaked from the Wuhan Institute Virology (WIV) and (2) the possibility that the virus was intentionally genetically manipulated.”

They go on to speak on the dangerous Gain of Function (biological weapon) research, as well as the NIH attempts to circumvent oversight and failed to report what they were doing. Requesting a written interview from Fauci and Collins to explain why their emails directly contradict their public statements and why they ignored and silenced the world’s most qualified scientists. Fauci claims he is the sole representation of “science”, yet chooses to ignore the global subject matter experts. Sacrificing the safety of every single human being on Earth for his own political agenda.

See the following emails with statements from the world’s top scientists, reporting to the NIH on their analysis on the origin of covid.

-Michael Farzan, Ph.D.
Chair & Professor Of Department Of Immunology And Microbiology. University of Florida. Discoverer of the SARS Receptor.

He states that he is “bothered by furin site, and has a hard time explaining that as an event outside the lab (though there are possible ways in nature but highly unlikely)”.

-Bob Garry, Ph.D.
Professor of Microbiology and Immunology.
Tulane School of Medicine.

He states that “I really can’t think of a plausible natural scenario where you get from the bat virus or one very similar to it to nCoV where you insert exactly 4 amino acids 12 nucleotide that all have to be added at the exact same time to gain this function – that and you don’t change any other amino acid in S2? I just can’t figure out how this gets accomplished in nature.”

So two of the world’s top virologists told the US NIH, all the back in February 2020, it’s borderline molecularly impossible for C19 to occur naturally. And how did Collins at the NIH respond to the top virologists claiming C19 is man made?

Collins states ”a swift convening of experts in a confidence inspiring framework (WHO seems really the only option) is needed, or the voices of conspiracy will quickly dominate, doing great potential harm to science and international harmony...”

Yup you read that right. The former director of the NIH, said that we need to ignore the top virologists, and the incontrovertible evidence that C19 came from an NIH funded lab. Otherwise, the public might think that NIH are conducting a nefarious conspiracy and that might damage public trust in science… in short, Collins is covering his ass because his agency created C19. They followed this up with a narrative setting teleconference to the world’s top scientists, pushing medical propaganda to ignore the fact that the virus was clearly man made in a lab.

Despite the repeated attempts from the NIH to establish that the lab leak reality was a “conspiracy theory”, the top virologists still pushed back.

-Jeremy Farrar, Ph.D.
Former Professor of Tropical Medicine.
Oxford University.

-Ed Holmes, Ph.D.
Professor of Medicine.
University of California.

“(Ed Holmes) 60-40 Lab. I’m (Jeremey Farrar) 50-50.”

So despite the gaslighting seminar, top scientists worldwide are still saying the lab leak possibility is more likely than not. The NIH chose to keep all of these conversations hidden from us, declaring that the science confirmed it was naturally occurring, and anyone suggesting otherwise is spreading disinformation. They took it further and used their collusion with big tech to censor anyone on the Internet who suggested that the virus was man made. Despite the science clearly confirming the mathematical certainty it was man made.

Think about how this correlates with the battle for control of Twitter. Think about why the Biden admin is so desperate to maintain control of what is considered “disinformation”. When the public finds out that Fauci and the Dems created covid and lied about it… the jig is up.

So two months go by, and in April of 2020, Collins reaches out to the rest of the NIH leadership and asks how they can combat this “destructive conspiracy”, in reference to a Fox News article citing that there is increasingly significant evidence that C19 came from the NIH funded lab in Wuhan.

Fauci responds in a private message just to Collins: “I would not do anything about this right now. It is a shiny object that will go away in times.”

So the public are catching on to the fact that the NIH lied about the origin of C19 the entire time, and the NIH respond with doubling down and continuing to cover up their involvement in the creation of a bioweapon that they used to shut down the world and implement a medical police state. And Fauci infers that the public is stupid and we will forget about it after the next “shiny object” presents itself.

In conclusion, the US NIH created C19 in a lab, via Gain of Function research in nations abroad, intentionally to avoid congressional oversight. One of their experiments either got out or was released. The NIH knew it was man-made, but told the public it was naturally occurring, in order to cover their asses. They got caught, and began censoring scientists that dared to point this out. As well as censored any dissent on the internet, despite the fact that all of this was true. Seems they have a common MO of censoring the truths that are inconvenient for their plot to take over the world.

So when normies claim that C19 wasn’t man-made and you’re a conspiracy theorist, show them the emails and congressional memo, confirming the virus is man-made, and confirming the NIH covered it up. Keep in mind Collins “stepped down” shortly after this memo was sent out, and Fauci has largely disappeared since then as well.

Now, with all of this prerequisite knowledge, does it make more sense as to why Russia is destroying/occupying US DoD funded biolabs near their border in Ukraine? Now does it make sense why the other two world superpowers formally accused the US of creating biological weapons? Now does it make sense why the US government and big tech really want me off the internet?

The US NIH is responsible for creating the bioweapon known as C19 and this is the secret they can’t let their normies find out about. Now that they can’t control free speech on Twitter, they are going all in with the “Disinformation Governance Board” to attempt to keep this secret under wraps. Because once the greater public is exposed to this reality, the normies will be right along side us calling for military tribunals and Fauci’s head on a spike.

Interesting... Anyone know much of anything about TLR7 mutations? Perhaps they are more prevalent in Russians... perchance?

I did some googling this morning and that receptor is also responsible for Lupus. Wanna know what the signs of Lupus are?

  • Muscle and joint pain. You may experience pain and stiffness, with or without swelling. This affects most people with lupus. Common areas for muscle pain and swelling include the neck, thighs, shoulders, and upper arms.
  • Fever. A fever higher than 100 degrees Fahrenheit affects many people with lupus. The fever is often caused by inflammation or infection. Lupus medicine can help manage and prevent fever.
  • Rashes. You may get rashes on any part of your body that is exposed to the sun, such as your face, arms, and hands. One common sign of lupus is a red, butterfly-shaped rash across the nose and cheeks.
  • Chest pain. Lupus can trigger inflammation in the lining of the lungs. This causes chest pain when breathing deeply.
  • Hair loss. Patchy or bald spots are common. Hair loss could also be caused by some medicines or infection.
  • Sun or light sensitivity. Most people with lupus are sensitive to light, a condition called photosensitivity. Exposure to light can cause rashes, fever, fatigue, or joint pain in some people with lupus.
  • Kidney problems. Half of people with lupus also have kidney problems, called lupus nephritis.3 Symptoms include weight gain, swollen ankles, high blood pressure, and decreased kidney function.
  • Mouth sores. Also called ulcers, these sores usually appear on the roof of the mouth, but can also appear in the gums, inside the cheeks, and on the lips. They may be painless, or you may have soreness or dry mouth.
  • Prolonged or extreme fatigue. You may feel tired or exhausted even when you get enough sleep. Fatigue can also be a warning sign of a lupus flare.
  • Anemia. Fatigue could be a sign of anemia, a condition that happens when your body does not have red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout your body.
  • Memory problems. Some people with lupus report problems with forgetfulness or confusion.
  • Blood clotting. You may have a higher risk of blood clotting. This can cause blood clots in the legs or lungs, stroke, heart attack, or repeated miscarriages
  • Eye disease. You may get dry eyes, eye inflammation, and eyelid rashes.

We’re now going through a phase of the Great Corporatist Mind Control Experiment when masks, vaccines, tests and other illegal requirements are being lifted or pared down and people are beginning to relax and believe the worst is over. As we have said before, the worst is yet to come: more fake pandemics, more egregious bills such as SB1479, SB 866, SB 1419, AB 1797, AB 2098 in the California legislature and similar bills in other states, worldwide tracking of our medical and financial records, digital dollars controlled by the Federal Reserve, the WHO pandemic treaty that gives a handful of people power over every country in the world, and the ultimate wet dream of the globalists - transhumanism and permanent riddance of “useless eaters.” Unless health freedom fighters get on the same page and agree on who and what we are fighting, the battle for democracy will be that much more difficult.

THE PROBLEM

Many doctors, scientists, laymen, and lawyers who head up anti mandate groups still believe that the Covid virus exists and that there was and is a pandemic. For example, in their emails they mention ivermectin as something that can heal Covid. They talk about how states and countries like Florida and Sweden that locked down only briefly have less incidences of Covid. They talk about cases of Covid going up or down. They also talk about the Covid vaccines as being “experimental” as if vaccines that haven’t been tested on animals for several years isn’t as safe as those that have.

Many health freedom advocates believe that the virus “escaped” from a lab, which is a theory that Fauci and pharma love because as Dr. Tom Cowan says, “The bad guys are smarter than them (the anti-vaccine activists) and suckered them into promoting ‘Oh my god, there is a deadly engineered virus!’ It keeps the virus story going and scares people even worse. They (pharma) are masters in chess, most people are either playing checkers or don’t even know there is a game.” The bio-engineered virus that “escaped from a lab” theory is one more effective pharma propaganda tool that we all need to understand is B.S. and dismiss.

In Dr. Andrew Kaufman’s article about the invalidity of the Covid virus he and his colleagues explain the only scientific method of isolating a virus. But it hasn’t been done for decades. https://bit.ly/39jFd82 Why, you may ask? Because if you can say you’ve isolated a virus using fraudulent science, why not do it since the public so easily believes in lies? Stand back! Here comes another pandemic! However, the final part of the isolation process as described by Dr. Kaufman and others is one we take issue with, which is testing the result on animals to see if it makes them sick. Testing on animals cannot be extrapolated to humans so we will learn nothing from that. Non animal tests exist that will give scientific results relevant to humans.

In the video link below, Dr. Kaufman point by point refutes the assertions of Jeremy Hammond and the belief in the existence of the Covid virus by Dr. Joseph Mercola and others. https://bit.ly/3rV26VP After watching the video it becomes obvious that the Covid virus has never been scientifically isolated and in reality, does not exist. You have to wonder why doctors like Mercola refuse to listen to the common sense and extremely easy to understand explanations of Dr. Kaufman and others.

The truth is, many of the health freedom doctors and leaders also believe in the scientific fraud of vivisection and are constantly referring to “animal studies” to prove a point, even while pushing natural health therapies. To add insult to injury, these same doctors and leaders are terrified to say they are anti vaccine and are constantly dreaming about and espousing a nonexistent “green vaccine” and a “safe vaccine” as if there will ever be such a thing. They know that the vaccine court has paid out over $4.5 billion in damages to vaccine victims since Congress passed a bill in 1986 that absolved vaccine/drug companies from all liability for injury and death caused by their vaccines. Obviously, vaccines have been killing and harming people long before the Covid jabs came along.

IT'S COMING

After decades of inventing one phony flu/pandemic after another it stands to reason that Fauci, pharma, the CDC, FDA, and WHO will come up with more of the same. They own the media now. They can make the public believe in anything, and once again incite fear of a germ that doesn’t exist. This will engender more vaccine sales, more huge profits, more lockdowns, and more control.

WOULDN’T IT BE GREAT?

Wouldn’t it be great if doctors like Mercola, Frontline Doctors, and all the famous health freedom leaders could do some sort of self-assessment and come to the conclusion that they have been wrong all along about vaccines and the existence of Covid? These people already are being called every name in the book by pharma, google, and mainstream media – “notorious,” “liars,” “spreaders of misinformation,” “disgrace,” and more. Why not go all the way and just admit the truth so all of us can stand together against the evildoers? What would it hurt? What does hurt is health freedom leaders insisting that the Covid virus and the pandemic are real.

If we all stand together as a united front and overwhelm the public with the facts about the nonexistence of Covid and all of the other phony pandemics – bird flu, swine flu, SARS, Zika, Ebola, etc., any of the new fake pandemics they intend to throw at us would have much less impact on the public. Kind of like before when pharma didn’t own the media, and we had real journalists debunking the fakery, and the public pretty much ignored warnings that these pandemics were going to kill everyone on the entire planet. If people understand that the germs do not exist, they cannot be fear mongered, and pharma and the corporatists lose their hold on us. And we win!

So please, let’s all encourage our friends in the health freedom movement who persist in believing in Covid and vaccines to search for the truth and find it. It is readily available. Call them, email them, and tell them to get on the truth-telling bandwagon. The lies are deeply ingrained, especially if you are a doctor and have been programed to believe in drugs and vaccines by the pharmaceutical companies that sponsor medical schools. Ridding oneself of that kind of brainwashing is difficult. We suggest these doctors and scientists take long hikes in the mountains, long walks with their dogs, meditate, pray, lose their pride, shake off their arrogance, and take a trip back to their childhood where they will find their common sense that was alive and well before it was assailed on all sides by the lies of pharma.

Health freedom leaders need to do the same. They were not brainwashed in medical schools by pharma, but many of the advisors who surround them were. These esteemed leaders are just as impressed by doctor titles and white lab coats as anybody else. If their scientist, doctor, and even vivisector friends tell them vaccines can be safe and Covid exists, then that’s what they’ll believe. The great thing is, if you have a famous name and a modicum of prestige, you will have no problem reaching Dr. Andrew Kaufman and talking to him in person. That should do the trick. If he can’t convince you that Covid doesn’t exist, then no one can.

The new, terrifying, fake pandemic is around the corner. If everyone knows the truth, it can’t touch us. Let’s get on the same page everybody and we become unassailable!

For more information on the nonexistence of Covid, and enlightenment regarding the germ theory invented by Louis Pasteur, the Anthony Fauci of his time, we suggest downloading the movie Terrain which is available online. Dr. Kaufman, Dr. Cowan and others explain it all for you and our good friend Peggy Hall is in the cast as well.

To read more about the germ theory versus the terrain theory, here is a link https://bit.ly/3kgSWP5 that will connect you to a newsletter on our webpage where you can read about how the whole germ debacle began and why it is the root cause of the fake pandemics and the destruction wreaked on all of us by the pharmaceutical industry.

CONCLUSION: “THE SARS-COV2 VIRUS DOES NOT EXIST.” ~ Dr. Thomas Cowan, MD, Dr. Andrew Kaufman, MD, Sally Fallon Morell, MA

img_9752.jpg

“For, as we now know, if the virus has never been isolated, sequenced or shown to cause illness, if the virus is imaginary, then why are we wearing masks, social distancing and putting the whole world into prison? Shining the light on this truth is essential to stop this terrible fraud that humanity is confronting. Finally, if pathogenic viruses don’t exist, then what is going into those injectable devices erroneously called ‘vaccines,’ and what is their purpose? This scientific question is the most urgent and relevant one of our time. We are correct. The SARS-CoV2 virus does not exist.”

~Dr. Thomas Cowan, MD, Dr. Andrew Kaufman, MD, Sally Fallon Morell, MA​


Isolation: The action of isolating; the fact or condition of being isolated or standing alone;
separation from other things or persons; solitariness.
– Oxford English Dictionary

Statement On Virus Isolation (SOVI)​

The controversy over whether the SARS-CoV-2 virus has ever been isolated or purified continues. However, using the above definition, common sense, the laws of logic and the dictates of science, any unbiased person must come to the conclusion that the SARS-CoV-2 virus has never been isolated or purified. As a result, no confirmation of the virus’ existence can be found. The logical, common sense, and scientific consequences of this fact are:
• the structure and composition of something not shown to exist can’t be known, including the presence, structure, and function of any hypothetical spike or other proteins;
• the genetic sequence of something that has never been found can’t be known;
• “variants” of something that hasn’t been shown to exist can’t be known;
• it’s impossible to demonstrate that SARS-CoV-2 causes a disease called Covid-19.
In as concise terms as possible, here’s the proper way to isolate, characterize and demonstrate a new virus. First, one takes samples (blood, sputum, secretions) from many people (e.g. 500) with symptoms which are unique and specific enough to characterize an illness. Without mixing these samples with ANY tissue or products that also contain genetic material, the virologist macerates, filters and ultracentrifuges i.e. purifies the specimen. This common virology technique, done for decades to isolate bacteriophages1 and so-called giant viruses in every virology lab, then allows the virologist to demonstrate with electron microscopy thousands of identically sized and shaped particles. These particles are the isolated and purified virus.
These identical particles are then checked for uniformity by physical and/or microscopic techniques. Once the purity is determined, the particles may be further characterized. This would include examining the structure, morphology, and chemical composition of the particles. Next, their genetic makeup is characterized by extracting the genetic material directly from the purified particles and using genetic-sequencing techniques, such as Sanger sequencing, that have also been around for decades. Then one does an analysis to confirm that these uniform particles are exogenous (outside) in origin as a virus is conceptualized to be, and not the normal breakdown products of dead and dying tissues.2 (As of May 2020, we know that virologists have no way to determine whether the particles they’re seeing are viruses or just normal break-down products of dead and dying tissues.)3

3 “The Role of Extraellular Vesicles as Allies of HIV, HCV and SARS Viruses,” Flavia Giannessi, et al, Viruses, 2020 May
If we have come this far then we have fully isolated, characterized, and genetically sequenced an exogenous virus particle. However, we still have to show it is causally related to a disease. This is carried out by exposing a group of healthy subjects (animals are usually used) to this isolated, purified virus in the manner in which the disease is thought to be transmitted. If the animals get sick with the same disease, as confirmed by clinical and autopsy findings, one has now shown that the virus actually causes a disease. This demonstrates infectivity and transmission of an infectious agent.
None of these steps has even been attempted with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, nor have all these steps been successfully performed for any so-called pathogenic virus. Our research indicates that a single study showing these steps does not exist in the medical literature.
Instead, since 1954, virologists have taken unpurified samples from a relatively few people, often less than ten, with a similar disease. They then minimally process this sample and inoculate this unpurified sample onto tissue culture containing usually four to six other types of material — all of which contain identical genetic material as to what is called a “virus.” The tissue culture is starved and poisoned and naturally disintegrates into many types of particles, some of which contain genetic material. Against all common sense, logic, use of the English language and scientific integrity, this process is called “virus isolation.” This brew containing fragments of genetic material from many sources is then subjected to genetic analysis, which then creates in a computer-simulation process the alleged sequence of the alleged virus, a so called in silico genome. At no time is an actual virus confirmed by electron microscopy. At no time is a genome extracted and sequenced from an actual virus. This is scientific fraud.
The observation that the unpurified specimen — inoculated onto tissue culture along with toxic antibiotics, bovine fetal tissue, amniotic fluid and other tissues — destroys the kidney tissue onto which it is inoculated is given as evidence of the virus’ existence and pathogenicity. This is scientific fraud.
From now on, when anyone gives you a paper that suggests the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been isolated, please check the methods sections. If the researchers used Vero cells or any other culture method, you know that their process was not isolation. You will hear the following excuses for why actual isolation isn’t done:
1 There were not enough virus particles found in samples from patients to analyze.
2 Viruses are intracellular parasites; they can’t be found outside the cell in this manner.
If No. 1 is correct, and we can’t find the virus in the sputum of sick people, then on what evidence do we think the virus is dangerous or even lethal? If No. 2 is correct, then how is the virus spread from person to person? We are told it emerges from the cell to infect others. Then why isn’t it possible to find it?
Finally, questioning these virology techniques and conclusions is not some distraction or divisive issue. Shining the light on this truth is essential to stop this terrible fraud that humanity is confronting. For, as we now know, if the virus has never been isolated, sequenced or shown to cause illness, if the virus is imaginary, then why are we wearing masks, social distancing and putting the whole world into prison?
Finally, if pathogenic viruses don’t exist, then what is going into those injectable devices erroneously called “vaccines,” and what is their purpose? This scientific question is the most urgent and relevant one of our time.
We are correct. The SARS-CoV2 virus does not exist.

Why Nobody Can Find a Virus

end of virology

Perhaps prior to 2020 the issue of virus isolation was of minimal interest to the vast majority of earth’s inhabitants. Most people blindly accept the medical establishment’s claims that viruses exist and can cause disease. They otherwise don’t give it a second thought. Sometimes you get unwell, and a doctor informs you, “it’s probably a viral illness” – but almost every time, you get better again.
However, the increasingly negative impacts from government instigated policies in the name of the “corona” crisis has resulted in some healthy new interest in the subject. Social cohesion in households and communities is being strained, businesses are being run into the ground, and suspicions about the requirement to be injected every four months to maintain protection against an invisible enemy are on the rise. If no virus has been isolated then its very existence is pure speculation. A phantom menace that has no confirmed physical presence, merely a ruinous psychological construct manifesting as a living nightmare. And those who ignore the pivotal issue of virus isolation are blindly accepting a premise on which all manner of lies can be built.

But there are scientific papers that prove isolation?…​

The confusion surrounding virus isolation stems from the fact that many published scientific papers state in their titles or claim in their abstracts that they successfully “isolated” a virus. In 2020 and 2021, we lost track of the number of times we were sent such papers as apparent proof of the “SARS-CoV-2” virus. Similarly, industry-funded “fact-checking” sites have a propensity to link to such papers to reassure their spoon-fed readers that the “virus” has been isolated. Unfortunately, such disinformation sites fail to inform their audience that the virologists are not referring to actual physical isolation of any virus and have instead substituted the meaning of the word isolation for something that means almost the opposite.

Researchers such as Christine Massey have tirelessly collated Freedom of Information requests from governments around the world to clearly expose the fact that the alleged causal agent of COVID-19 has never once been physically isolated. While at least one government supported microbiologist has claimed this is disingenuous as the requests are worded in such a way that they are not consistent with the methodology of modern virology, this misses the whole point: the modern virologists are not isolating viruses in the way that the public and probably most of the medical profession are led to believe. Instead, they moved the goalposts.

The excuses for this sleight of hand should be rejected and the isolation of a virus should mean the same as it does with any other entity on the planet – that is, in its pure form, separated out from other material. It is done with things that are smaller than alleged viruses, such as proteins, and things that are bigger such as bacteria. It is not a technological limitation or because of some special property that precludes this process from being essential to the process of real isolation.

The most definitive evidence of a virus would be finding it directly in a host such as a human.

However, despite the fact we are told that a single sneeze could contain 200 million SARS-CoV-2 particles, when we take a mucous or blood sample from a patient not one virus particle can be found. And what about taking samples from hundreds or even thousands of people said to be infected and have a disease such as COVID-19 and then combining them altogether? We’re not sure if this has ever been tried but apparently even then if we purified such a sample, the excuse is apparently the same: we wouldn’t find any viruses in there! So, we are expected to believe that a patient is overwhelmed with trillions of viral particles but we can’t find any on or inside them.

Magic Tricks and the Electron Microscope​

The virologists of old were convinced that with the advent of the electron micrograph and more efficient purification techniques they would be able to find all sorts of viruses in sick individuals. However, it became apparent they would have to abandon this process around the middle of the 20th Century as the attempts were fruitless – no viruses were found. These days when most virologists talk about isolating viruses, one of the techniques they cite is tissue culture experiments in test tubes. It has been outlined why these are not only unsuitable proxies, but the stress of the test tube conditions alone on abnormal cells can produce the effects, no virus required. Similarly, detecting genetic sequences in these culture experiments is also unsatisfactory as there is no proof that such sequences come from inside any of the particles they are calling “SARS-CoV-2” and even if they did, that this is enough to qualify them as viruses. A virus is said to be a particle with a proteinaceous coat surrounding a genome that can infect and parasitise a host and then infect other hosts.
Therefore, anyone asserting that they have isolated a virus needs to show that what they have is actually a virus and not just test-tube observations and various biological molecules that can be detected without any viruses required.

How to Isolate a Virus​

  • STEP 1: Identify a number of individuals with specific symptoms and signs that are thought to be caused by a virus.
This can’t be done with COVID-19 as it is an ethereal clinical disease that is “diagnosed” with a PCR result. There are no specific symptoms, signs or confirmatory investigations. However, for the purposes of this essay we will assume that we are talking about a well-defined clinical disease. We know that the virologists will not be able to find any viruses directly in a patient as outlined above, which doesn’t look good, but we’ll let them have another shot.
  • STEP 2: Perform a tissue culture experiment with a patient sample.
Briefly, this involves adding a crude sample (e.g. sputum) to some cells in a test tube and seeing if it produces any viruses. In early 2020 it was declared that a “virus” called SARS-CoV-2 had been “isolated” with this method. In reality Na Zhu, et al, had both failed to physically isolate any particles or show any of these particles to be viruses.
So, what should have been done? Na Zhu, et al should have repeated their experiment multiple times and then purified the particles they called “2019-nCoV” (later “SARS-CoV-2”) by means of a technique such as density gradient ultracentrifugation. This technique was already well established in the 20th Century and as illustrated below in Figure 1 could be used satisfactorily to obtain much more purified samples that could be confirmed by electron microscopy.
EM-purified.png
Figure 1. Electron micrographs of Rauscher murine leukaemia virus purified from tissue culture fluids. Source: “Large-Volume Purification of Tumor Viruses by Use of Zonal Centrifuges”, 1972 (Note: these “viruses” should have been called viral-like particles as they were not demonstrated to fulfil the criteria of a virus)
At this point we could more confidently claim that we had physically isolated viral-like particles and could analyse their composition, including their genetic structure. All very interesting (and beyond what has been done) but the proof that these particles are viruses, that is infectious and disease-causing, still needs to be established.
  • STEP 3: Infect a live animal, eg a monkey with the purified particles.
Mind you, we are not talking about bogus experiments as described in Sam’s SARS-1 video.

Pouring large volumes of mixed tissue culture fluid directly into an animal’s lungs to see if it will cough or develop some lung tissue changes does not constitute evidence of a virus. Pouring any biological muck into an animal’s lungs will cause these reactions. That’s why control experiments are suspiciously absent in such experiments. The purified particles, said to be viruses (which we are told are airborne and highly infectious) alone could be simply sprayed into the animals’ cages and they should get sick. Following that, any monkey introduced into the cage subsequently should also get sick if there is a contagious pathogen.

The Case for Human Experiments with “Viruses”​

In fact, given that the world has been subjected to draconian restrictions, ruinous lockdowns, and population-wide experiments with “vaccines” in the name of an alleged virus, the case can be made for human experiments involving the “virus”. In the tradition of Max von Pettenkofer (who swallowed cholera bacillus in 1892 to show that it could not cause cholera by itself), we would be happy to inhale any purified particles said to be the SARS-CoV-2 “virus”, like many (we’re sure) who have investigated virology. It’s not particularly bold when one is aware that not once in history have any particles alleged to be virusesby themselves been shown to cause disease in any animal. Of course, such experiments would not be considered ethical today because the “deadly virus” was declared to exist, cause disease, and transmit via aerosol even though no such evidence was produced. However, one would suspect that these experiments are avoided due to the long history of the failure to demonstrate human to human transmission of any alleged viral illness.

Perhaps the complete lack of clinical evidence that influenza passes between humans as talked about below is the most embarrassing chapter for the “highly infectious virus” claimants.

The virus model was suspect long ago but it’s a model that will continue to be peddled as it pays dividends for industry participants – indeed, the development of their playbook over the decades is outlined in Virus Mania.

The End of Virology​

Forget hypothetical computer generated “genomes” from non-purified samples and PCR tests that are calibrated to these simulations: none of these require the existence of a virus. Forget electron micrographs of cell “culture” experiments purporting to show viruses: these are simply vesicles of unknown significance until shown otherwise. What we need to see is purification of these particles and then a demonstration that they can parasitise a host and are the causal agent of a disease. The reality is that nobody is isolating viruses because carrying out the correct experiments would reveal that the particles are not viruses at all and virology would be finished.

Bill Gates Admits COVID Is a "Disease Mainly of the Elderly, Kind of Like Flu"​

Chief Nerd Published May 5, 2022


Bill Gates says COVID is kind of like the flu, but a bit different.

LOL! Funny how now it seems okay to say that (if your name is Bill Gates) but for two years prior to now, when said by some other folks, some who are medical doctors.... those folks were ridiculed, banned, etc.

They can deny the truth for a while but they eventually have to admit it. Too bad there is no way they can bring back the dead people they are responsible for. I doubt Bill Gates even has the mental capacity to feel shame for his part in this mess.

Not exactly Covid, but it's related...

All Hell Breaks Out At Apple China Factory As Workers Clash With Guards Over Lockdowns​

BY TYLER DURDEN
FRIDAY, MAY 06, 2022 - 06:00 PM

Chaos broke out at Apple's MacBook factory in China after hundreds of employees clashed with authorities and jumped isolation barriers following weeks of intense lockdowns, reported Bloomberg, citing local media sources.

Radio Free Asia (RFA) China posted a video early Friday morning showing an uprising of hundreds of workers who were angered with the continuous "closed-loop production" (which means they were kept on-site and quarantined to keep production humming) at the MacBook factory in Shanghai, owned by Taiwan's Quanta Computer Inc. The incident reportedly occurred Thursday evening.

"[Suspected of dissatisfaction with "closed-loop production" epidemic prevention is too strict] [Quanta's Shanghai plant was shocked to hear that employees "rioted"] Shanghai Dafeng Electronics, a subsidiary of Shanghai Quanta, which has just partially resumed work, experienced an employee "riot" on the evening of Thursday (5th).
"As seen in the video, hundreds of young employees did not obey the command, jumped over the gate and ran away, and rushed out of the blockade to clash with the guards. It is reported that employees are dissatisfied with the epidemic prevention and control and want to go out to buy civilian materials," RFA China tweeted.

Taiwanese media outlet UDN said the riots occurred after Quanta "prevented employees who had returned to work from returning to the dormitory area during off-duty hours, causing employees to panic and worry about returning to a strict state of isolation and control. Therefore, the group rushed into the dormitory area to cause riots, mainly because of dissatisfaction with the strict epidemic control."




Quanta is Apple's top Macbook factory and has conducted closed-loop production at the factory for the last month to keep workers from getting infected. Bloomberg noted that the discontent was resolved Friday morning, and the factory returned to normal operations. In its latest earnings report, Apple warned that supply constraints would cost the company $4 billion to $8 billion in the current quarter.

Shanghai has enforced a zero-COVID strategy (supported by China's Politburo) across Shanghai, locking down nearly 25 million people for more than a month. Reuters reports the city's epidemic prevention and control situation is "improving." Some companies opted for closed-loop production to keep factories open. This helped restart 70% of production in the manufacturing hub, while 90% of 660 top industrial companies have resumed output.

"But it's unclear how long the closed loops can be sustained, given the resources required to feed and house thousands of workers at a time. The system also requires that workers avoid contact with anyone outside the loop, including family members," Bloomberg explained.

The situation at Quanta on Thursday night shows workers are getting frustrated with strict controls and could lead to more uprisings at other factories.
