Destroying the Narrative: 40 Reasons Why a COVID-19 Pandemic Never Existed




“It’s completely understandable that people want to get on with their lives, but we will not be going back to the old normal.” – WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus


“Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal…The short response is: never. Nothing will ever return to the ‘broken’ sense of normalcy that prevailed prior to the crisis because the coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental inflection point in our global trajectory.” Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum


The whole world is under the power of an evil spell. The specters of the past like Naziism, Fascism, Communism, and Technocracy are rapidly converging across the globe and hurling us towards a true prison planet where authoritarian rule is commonplace.


None of this would have been possible without State of Emergency declarations being implemented in countries worldwide to stop the so-called coronavirus “pandemic.” Authoritarian governments love emergency powers and executive orders because they provide cover to implement all manner of draconian dictates essentially destroying free speech, freedom of assembly, and freedom of the press all in the name of keeping people safe.


What if the pretext for declaring a pandemic and locking down billions of people was all just a ruse? What if all that’s happened over the past 18 months had nothing to do with a global health crisis? What if many of the deaths attributed to COVID-19 could have stemmed from other causes? What if the reason for declaring a pandemic was destroy the current world system and institute a “new normal” New World Order?


There is an abundance of evidence suggesting that the coronavirus “pandemic” is nothing but a global social engineering project meant to get people used to obeying mandates and dictates from local, state, federal, and even international powers. The following statement from World Economic Forum leader Klaus Schwab seems to indicate there is indeed another purpose for the crisis:



If it can be proven that there was never a real pandemic, then all instituted measures including lockdowns, masking, social distancing, contact tracing, vaccination, and vaccine passports are totally unnecessary, unethical, unlawful, and must be stopped immediately!


There have been thousands of articles written about the devastating repercussions each one of these “safety” measures has wrought against humanity. This two-part article will tie together many facts that when considered together, will destroy the illusion that humanity ever faced a dire “pandemic.” The list is in no particular order and links to source material are included for reference and further investigation.


Much of this research could not have been achieved without the work of so many independent journalists and alternative media outlets. Now, let’s begin the journey and delve into the 40 Reasons Why a COVID-19 Pandemic Never Existed.


#1 – COVID-19 symptoms are largely indistinguishable from symptoms of other common illnesses.


The CDC’s official list of COVID-19 symptoms do nothing to differentiate COVID-19 from illnesses such as influenza, the common cold, allergies, and pneumonia. Potentially, millions of people diagnosed with COVID-19 likely had one of these other illnesses.


#2 – Early test kits developed by the CDC were severely flawed.


A March 2020 article in Business Insider revealed CDC test kits could not distinguish between the coronavirus and water. The CDC had to recall over 32,000 test kits that had been shipped to state public health labs. In April 2020, CDC officials confirmed that COVID-19 test kits sent out to states in February were tainted with the coronavirus. It was determined that sloppy laboratory practices at two of three CDC labs involved in the tests’ creation led to contamination and uninterpretable results. Though it’s said that the tests did not spread coronavirus to people, how do we know this for sure given the multitude of other lies that were told? If you think this was just an issue in the U.S., please see also here, here, and here.


#3 – The RT-PCR test used to diagnose COVID-19 is fraudulent.


The late Nobel Prize winning inventor Kary Mullis said that PCRs should never be used for medical diagnosis. The PCR test was never intended to diagnose illness from viruses and current versions cannot distinguish between different coronaviruses or other virus types. The test can only detect the presence of genetic material having a variety of origins. Positivity levels for COVID-19 depend largely on what cycle threshold tests are set for. Anything above 30-35 cycles is likely to produce false positive results. Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted this in an interview from July 2020. According to the New York Times, most U.S. labs set the cycle threshold at 40, meaning test results are highly likely to indicate false positive results.


The CDC is abandoning the current PCR test as of Dec. 31, 2021 citing that a new test will “facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses.” This admission implies that the current PCR test cannot make these distinctions! The CDC even admitted that a positive PCR test result does not necessarily indicate that COVID-19 is the definitive cause of disease and may be other bacterial infections or co-infection with other viruses. See also here, here, and here.

#4 – Results from widespread PCR testing led to an increase in false positive “cases” giving the illusion of a pandemic.


death rates were proven to be minimal, the fearmongering campaign focused on the rise of positive “cases”resulting from fraudulent PCR tests. Thousands and potentially millions of people tested positive for COVID-19 though they had no symptoms. Officials and the media were complicit in creating a “casedemic” where healthy people were told they were sick because of a positive test! See also here, here, here, here, here, and here.


#5 – The Delta and all other COVID-19 variants are a sham.


The current PCR test can’t differentiate between SARS-CoV-2 and the “Delta” variant (or any variant for that matter). According to the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, “Detecting the Delta variant, or other variants, requires a special type of testing called genomic sequencing. Due to the volume of COVID-19 cases, sequencing is not performed on all viral samples. However, because the Delta variant now accounts for the majority of COVID-19 cases in the United States, there is a strong likelihood that a positive test result indicates infection with the Delta variant.” (Emphasis added).


According to Business Insider, you aren’t legally allowed to know which variant gave you COVID-19 in the U.S., even if it’s Delta. Armed with these facts, how can there be an epidemic of “Delta” variant infections when the PCR test can’t detect it and the required genomic sequencing tests aren’t being performed and haven’t yet been federally approved?

Finally, the supposed Delta variant is no deadlier than the original “SARS-Cov-2” strain. According to a Public Health England report (page 8) from June 18, 2021, the case fatality rate for the Delta variant was 0.1%, about the same rate as the flu.


#6 – Asymptomatic transmission is a myth.


Before the current state of scientific lunacy, you had to actually have symptoms to be diagnosed as being sick from a disease or virus. The COVID-19 “pandemic” turned things around 180 degrees where you could test positive for the virus, but never show any symptoms. A December 2020 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) revealed:

  • Symptomatic people infect someone else in the house 18% of the time.

  • Asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic people only infected someone else 0.7% of the time.

The study concluded that “these findings are consistent with other household studies reporting asymptomatic index cases as having limited role in household transmission.” If it’s virtually impossible to contract COVID-19 from someone without symptoms you live with, how is it possible to contract it from interacting with asymptomatic people in public places?

A study by Chinese researchers published by the NIHs National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) revealed that none of the 455 individuals exposed to asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 carriers for 4-5 days later tested positive for the disease. The study’s conclusion states:


“In summary, all the 455 contacts were excluded from SARS-CoV-2 infection and we conclude that the infectivity of some asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 carriers might be weak.”

In June 2020, Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, head of the WHO’s Emerging Diseases and Zoonosis unit publicly stated that asymptomatic carriers very rarely transmit the coronavirus. As this admission began to make major news, Dr. Van Kerkhove and the WHO quickly backtracked, “reassuring” everyone that asymptomatic people can spread the virus. So, which is true? Perhaps the words of Dr. Anthony Fauci (in one of the rare times he’s told the truth) will help clear the confusion, see here. Case closed!

#7 – Over 80% of people who were diagnosed with COVID-19 and placed on ventilators died.


Last year Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell sparked controversy with a viral video stating that patients being put on ventilators were dying at an alarming rate. Data from China and NYC indicated that over 80% of people placed on ventilators died. USA Today ran a story stating that most COVID-19 patients put on ventilators die. A Journal of the American Medical Association study from April, 2020 revealed that 88% of New Yorkers placed on a ventilator did not survive. These examples prove that it was medical malpractice that killed thousands of people, not COVID-19.


#8 – Nursing homes and long-term care facilities comprised a large portion of COVID-19 deaths worldwide.


Many of the deaths that created the initial “pandemic” panic were elderly patients in nursing homes and long-term care facilities. In June 2020, USA Today documented 40,600 deaths among nursing home residents and believed this number to be an undercount. The Atlantic corroborated this total and also pointed out that “state and federal officials seem to be doing little to protect the elderly from further devastation.” Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo should have been held personally responsible for many of these deaths after issuing an executive order allowing COVID-19 positive and infectious patients to be moved to nursing homes for treatment. A May 2020 Guardian article revealed that “90% of the 3,700 people who have died from coronavirus in Sweden were over 70, and half were living in care homes.” In Belgium, more than half of coronavirus deaths were those in care homes. Spain and Italy also had similar numbers.


How many elderly patients truly died from COVID and not some other underlying cause like cancer? Even worse, how many may have been deliberately killed? A damning NHS document revealed that many nursing and care facility patients were potentially given a fatal dose of Midazolam, a drug used for sedation therapy in critically ill patients. See also here.

Were the elderly sacrificed to spark fear and create the illusion that death was imminent if one contracted COVID-19?


#9 – Some COVID-19 patients were denied life-saving medical treatments.


NYC hospitals (at one time the epicenter of the “pandemic” in the U.S.) issued “Do Not Resuscitate (DNR)” orders for dying coronavirus patients. Just as insidious, these DNR orders were also being recommended for those with disabilities. Being denied life-saving treatment goes against the Hippocratic Oath! See also here, here, here, and here.


#10 – Doctors and hospitals were paid more to diagnose patients with COVID-19.


The corruption in our health care system cannot be overstated. According to S. Senator Dr. Scott Jensen, hospitals were given $13,000 for every COVID-19 diagnosis (up from $5,000 for a typical lump sum payment) and $39,000 for every COVID-19 patient using a ventilator by the NIH. Even a USA Today fact check article verified that this was true. This is easily verifiable because the CARES Act authorized increased Medicare payments to hospitals treating COVID-19 victims. Dr. Jensen, who would not go along with the scam was threatened with having his medical license revoked for exposing this truth. In August 2020, former CDC Director Robert Redfield also admitted that hospitals have a monetary incentive to overcount coronavirus deaths.


#11 – The CDC dishonestly mixed in mortality data from pneumonia, influenza or COVID-19 (PIC) to tally death rates.


This overt data manipulation does not present an accurate picture of the death rate for COVID-19 alone. Further evidence can be found in the fact that the flu virtually disappeared. How is this possible? According to a Healthlinereport, “the flu has resulted in 3 million to 49 million illnesses each year in the United States since 2010. Each year, on average, five to 20 percent of the United States population gets the flu.” Creating the PIC category allowed the CDC to hide the flu and relabel it as COVID-19! See also here and here.


#12 – COVID-19 death numbers were inflated.


A CDC memo dated March 24, 2020 from Steven Schwartz, PhD and Director – Division of Vital Statistics advised coroners and medical examiners to report COVID-19 fatalities for those who did not receive a positive test result as long as it was assumed it caused or contributed to the death.


Montana physician Dr. Annie Bukacek, said “The CDC counts both true COVID-19 cases and speculative guesses of COVID-19 the same. They call it death by COVID-19. They automatically overestimate the real death numbers, by their own admission.”


Dr. Deborah Birx stated that if someone died after testing positive for COVID-19, the death will be counted as COVID-19 even if they died from other causes.


A report showed up to 88% of Italy’s alleged COVID-19 deaths could have been misattributed.


In April 2020, CDC began counting coronavirus cases and deaths not confirmed by lab testing, allowing numbers to be falsely inflated. A U.S. News & World Report article stated that as a result in the change in guidance from the CDC, “There was already a big rise in New York City, where officials this week started counting people who had never tested positive for the coronavirus. That caused the city’s death count to jump by more than 3,700 on Tuesday.”


COVID-19 deaths have been greatly exaggerated from the outset. The CDC has admitted that people who have died from “COVID-19” have had an average of 4 comorbidities, including conditions such as heart failure, diabetes, and cancer. Doesn’t it make sense that one or a combination of these other health conditions led to their death?

The CDC data also reveals that only over 5% of deaths recorded on official death certificates were attributed solely to COVID-19 as of Sept. 5, 2021. This means that around 95% of recorded deaths were not from COVID-19! See also here, here, here, here, here, here,here, here, here, and here.


Project Veritas exposed the accounts of several directors and workers at New York funeral homes, who admitted that COVID-19 was being written on the death certificate (when it was not the true cause of death) for political and monetary reasons.


The real death rate published by the CDC back in May 2020 is .004% for all ages. This indicates that the survival rate is 99.96% according to their current best estimate at the time. The breakdown is as follows:

  • 0-49: 0.0005

  • 50-64: 0.002

  • 65+: 0.013

  • Overall: 0.04

The overall survival rate jumped to 99.98% as indicated in the September 10 version of this data. As of this date, the current best estimate for death rates in all age groups was further defined as:

  • 0-19 years: 0.00003

  • 20-49 years: 0.0002

  • 50-69 years: 0.005

  • 70+ years: 0.054

  • Overall: 0.02

#13 – Excess deaths in 2020 were beyond those explainable by COVID-19.


In a March 2021 study, JAMA concluded that “the provisional leading cause-of-death rankings for 2020 indicate that COVID-19 was the third leading cause of death in the U.S. behind heart disease and cancer.” So, with all of the hype and hoopla about a pandemic, more people died from heart disease and cancer as is typical of any other year.


In an article from the BMJ, Dr. John Ioannidis indicated there were several other causes for excess deaths stating, “Under lockdown conditions many patients with acute, treatable conditions (such as coronary syndromes) avoid seeking care. This disruption may be seen in the excess deaths accruing so far in the COVID-19 lockdown. Patients with cancer whose treatment is delayed have worse outcomes. And when patients avoid hospitals many health systems suffer financially, furlough personnel, and cut services. COVID-19 overwhelmed a few dozen hospitals, but COVID-19 Countermeasures have already jeopardized thousands of them.”


The Center for Evidence Based Medicine came to the conclusion that “the total amount of excess mortality [attributed to COVID-19] will also depend on the age structure of a population. Countries with age structures weighted towards an older population will experience higher mortality than a country with an age structure weighted towards a younger population.”


In June 2020, a study revealed that nearly one-third of excess deaths in the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States were linked to causes other than COVID-19. Study author Dr. Steven Woolf stated, “People who never had the virus may have died from other causes because of the spillover effects of the pandemic, such as delayed medical care, economic hardship or emotional distress.”


Official figures showed there were 2,703 excess deaths across England and Wales as of September 2020, but coronavirus was not even in the top 10 leading causes of fatality. The leading cause of death in September for both countries was dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.


And finally, an article published on Nov. 22 in The Johns Hopkins Newsletter (but deleted a few days later) revealed some startling information about COVID-19 death rates including:

  • There is no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers

  • The total decrease in deaths by other causes almost exactly equals the increase in deaths by COVID-19

  • Deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia may instead be recategorized as being due to COVID-19

  • The CDC classified all deaths that are related to COVID-19 simply as COVID-19 deaths. Even patients dying from other underlying diseases but are infected with COVID-19 count as COVID-19 deaths.

The original article was retracted with an editor’s note on Nov. 27 and made available by PDF.


#14 – In 2009, the corrupt World Health Organization (WHO) changed the definition of a pandemic.


The WHO altered the pandemic definition by deleting “severity of illness” and focusing on the number of cases rather than the number of deaths. Some WHO scientists responsible for creating pandemic policies were being paid by the very pharmaceutical companies creating the vaccines and antivirals that would be used if a pandemic was declared.

The 2009 pandemic definition.

An influenza pandemic occurs when a new influenza virus appears against which the human population has no immunity, resulting in several, simultaneous epidemics worldwide with enormous numbers of deaths and illness.

See also here, here, here, here, here, and here.



#15 – WHO deleted the references to naturally acquired immunity from its website.


Once known as a basic staple in virology, the definition of herd immunity, also called naturally acquired immunity, was completely redefined by the WHO in a matter of months. No longer did natural immunity mean that a person could be protected from a viral infection because of previous exposure or vaccination; the new definition only emphasized protection from vaccination! The new definition serves to benefit vaccine makers and pigeonholes humanity into seeking protection from vaccines only. See here, here, and here.






#16 – WHO Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the person who declared a worldwide pandemic on March 11, 2020, is not even a medical doctor!


Ghebreyesus is the first WHO Director not to have this distinction. He is a Marxist Communist who had a key role in leading the murderous communist organization known as the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).


In addition, Ghebreyesus was accused of carrying out genocide through forced vaccination, chemical sterilization and abortion, when holding the post of Ethiopian Minister of Health between 2005 and 2012 by the Amhara Professional Union (APU), an Ethiopian civic organization. See also here and here.


To reiterate, the person responsible for declaring a global pandemic and creating mass hysteria and fear to stop an “invisible enemy” is not a medical doctor and is accused of genocide! Where’s the science in that?


#17 – WHO, CDC, and many public health officials confirmed COVID-19 is no more dangerous than the flu.


During a special session of the WHO’s 34-member executive board on October 5, 2020, WHO officials (inadvertently) revealed that 10% of the world population had been infected with coronavirus. This totaled to about 780 million cases. At the time, the global death toll attributed to COVID-19 was 1,061,539. This would equate to a fatality rate of 0.14%, about the same rate as seasonal flu deaths.


On January 31, 2020, Time published an article entitled “Want to Protect Yourself from Coronavirus? Do the Same Things You Do Every Winter” in which the author wrote, “While 2019-nCoV has never been seen before, it’s part of a family of viruses that are well-known both to doctors and the public; the common cold, for example, can be caused by certain coronaviruses. And while influenza is not a coronavirus, it isn’t so different from 2019-nCoV, either… The things we take for granted actually do work. It doesn’t matter what the virus is. The routine things work.”


On February 1, 2020, USA Today published an article entitled “Coronavirus is scary, but the flu is deadlier, more widespread” in which the author stated, “So far, there have been an estimated 19 million cases of flu, 180,000 hospitalizations and 10,000 deaths in the U.S. this influenza season – including 68 children.”


Dr. Anthony Fauci and former CDC Director Robert Redfield stated, “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%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively” in a published statement by the New England Journal of Medicine on February 28, 2020.


As early as March 19, 2020, Public Health England (PHE) downgraded COVID-19 from the status of a High Consequence Infectious Disease (HCID). This is significant because according to the definition of a HCID, COVID-19 was not acutely infectious, did not typically have a high case fatality rate, or require an enhanced individual, population and system response to ensure it was managed effectively, efficiently and safely.


During a press conference on April 30, 2020, British Chief Medical Officer Chris Witty, stated, “the great majority of people will not die from this… Of those who get symptoms, the great majority, probably 80%, will have a mild or moderate disease. Might be bad enough for them to have to go to bed for a few days, not bad enough for them to have to go to the doctor.”

One could argue that these statements were made early on before the COVID fatality rate was properly understood. However, the death rate has remained consistent throughout the entire “pandemic” and proves that it has always been more flu like than anything else.


#18 – Predictions based on false pandemic models led to lockdowns and harsh measures to “stop the spread” of the “virus.”


On March 16, 2020 the Bill Gates’ funded Imperial College of London model predicted 2 million U.S. deaths and 510,000 in the U.K. In May 2020, this prediction went up in smoke as the mathematical code was deemed sh*tcode. Neil Ferguson, the author of the code/report resigned his position as it was revealed he violated the lockdown by having his married lover visit his home. Governments around the world including the U.S. used this fake computer model to justify strict lockdowns that caused extreme economic hardship, depression, unemployment, and “unintended” negative medical consequences.


#19 – Deborah Birx, former White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, backed another fraudulent coronavirus model.


The IHME (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation) coronavirus model (also funded by Bill Gates) used data from New York and New Jersey (where some of the heaviest concentration of COVID-19 cases were occurring at the time) and applied it to the rest of the U.S., creating a completely false and unrealistic outcome. This prediction was used to further instill fear that death tolls and hospitalizations would drastically rise, further justifying the continuation of lockdowns.


The same IHME predicted that up to 2,800 daily deaths within 11 days and a final death total as high as 75,000 would occur if Sweden didn’t enact strict social distancing measures. For Sweden, the daily death peak was actually 75% lower than the baseline prediction and 96% lower than the worst-case prediction.


#20 – The SARS-CoV-2 virus has never been isolated, only sequenced by a computer.


No government or health agency has proof SARS-CoV-2 exists. FOIA requests from CDC reveal this to be true (FOIA request #21-01075-FOIA). Dr. Andrew Kaufman, Dr. Thomas Cowan, and Sally Fallon Morell have gone on record stating “the SARS-CoV-2 virus has never been isolated or purified. As a result, no confirmation of the virus’ existence can be found.” See also here, here and here, and here.


https://www.thehardtruth.co.uk/post/covid-19-does-not-exist



It’s a global scheme, we’ve been had!


There is no doubt that there was sickness and death occurring throughout the past 18 months that seemed to defy the norm. But can all it be attributed to a virus that in the eyes of many scientists and medical professionals cannot even be proven to exist?


#21 – Hydroxychloroquine was sidelined to make sure vaccines were the only available treatment for COVID-19.


On March 30, 2020 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the emergency use of Hydroxychloroquine and Chloroquine to treat COVID-19. On June 15, 2020 the EUA was revoked and the FDA “determined that Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine are unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19 for the authorized uses in the EUA.” This revocation took place despite the fact that the NIH knew Hydroxychloroquine was effective in treating coronaviruses as early as 2005.


Big Pharma stands to gain between $6-$19 billion in revenue from a coronavirus vaccine. Meanwhile Hydroxychloroquine—a proven coronavirus treatment—only costs on average about $20 per bottle.


On May 22, 2020 The Lancet, one of the most reputable medical journals in the world, published a study concluding that Hydroxychloroquine kills more patients and is a dangerous drug.


On June 5, 2020, The Lancet retracted this study after investigations into the company (Surgisphere) providing the data revealed severe inconsistencies and faulty methodology. See more about this unprecedented scandal here and here.


Dr. Anthony Fauci continued to insist that Hydroxychloroquine (an FDA approved drug in use for over 60 years) is not an effective treatment for COVID-19, despite numerous worldwide studies that concluded that it is. Yale epidemiologist Dr. Harvey Risch accused Dr. Fauci of running a ‘misinformation campaign’ against Hydroxychloroquine.


The National Pulse reported that a document no longer available from the FDA regarding “emergency use authorization” of potential COVID-19 treatments appeared to suggest that Hydroxychloroquine satisfied the criteria for the classification, but would have stood in the way of other lucrative drugs and a vaccine.


The American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) even sued the FDA for withholding from the public some 60 million doses of Hydroxychloroquine that were donated by drug manufacturers to treat coronavirus patients.


Please see the following list of studies proving that Hydroxychloroquine is an effective treatment for COVID-19 here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

#22 – Props were used to make the “pandemic” look worse than it actually was.


In March 2020, U.S. states and countries around the world began constructing makeshift hospital facilities to accommodate the expected surge of COVID-19 patients. New York anticipated needing an extra 87,000 beds as the Javits Center was converted into a hospital by the Army Corp of Engineers. The U.S.S. Comfort was also deployed to New York City while the U.S.S. Mercy was deployed to Los Angeles. This was all a sham, meant to trick the public into thinking the situation was much more dire than reality. An article in the Navy Times revealed the truth about these makeshift facilities, stating:

By the time of Comfort’s departure, the approximately 1,200-person crew and 1,000-bed hospital had treated just 182 patients, of which approximately 70 percent had COVID-19, according to Capt. Patrick Amersbach, commanding officer of the Comfort’s Medical Treatment Facility. Underutilization of added medical resources in New York City is not unique to the Comfort. Thousands of hospital beds made available in a converted convention center have gone largely unused after quick assembly by the Army Corps of Engineers. The Javits Center, which was initially envisioned as a 2,500-bed field hospital for non-COVID-19 patients, converted to coronavirus-only hospital shortly after going operational. Still, the highest number of patients treated at the convention center at one time topped out at close to 500.

Similarly, the U.S.S. Mercy had only treated 77 non-infected patients by the time it departed the port of Los Angeles.


News media were also caught faking stories to stir up fear. CBS This Morning used fake footage to push a story about overcrowded NYC hospitals. The footage was actually from a hospital in Italy. CBS also faked coverage of a testing site in Michigan, with doctors posing as patients lining up in cars to get a COVID-19 test. These are just a couple of examples, but there are dozens more.


Same in the UK Nightingale hospitals where constructed but never used.


UK 500-bed Nightingale Hospital to close without treating a single Covid-19 patient

And all of these hospitals, many of which cost millions of pounds to set up, are either closed or in the process of closing after receiving next to no patients. Meanwhile the government is still threatening the public that the NHS could be overwhelmed at any moment.

London's 4,000-bed Nightingale hospital to be SHUT after treating just 51 Covid-19 patients

https://www.sott.net/article/433821-Londons-4000-bed-Nightingale-hospital-to-be-SHUT-after-treating-just-51-Covid-19-patients



#23 – Big Tech, the White House, the media, and governments worldwide joined to censor information.


Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Reddit, and YouTube issued a joint statement about combating fraud and misinformation about the virus, basically admitting collusion to censor views that dissent from the official narrative. In an interview on CNN, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki justified censorship of opinions not supported by “authoritative sources,” stating “anything that would go against World Health Organization recommendations would be a violation of our policy. And so, removing information is another really important part of our policy.” Countless individuals, organizations, medical professionals, and political figures were censored, suspended, or completely de-platformed for expressing opinions or citing factual information that poked holes in the story spun by entities like the WHO, CDC, FDA, the White House, and United Nations.


Solving a “pandemic” is not like a mathematical equation where there can only be one right answer. Censorship of differing views and factual information is not a scientific principle, but a totalitarian one that actually violates the scientific method.

#24 – Surprise! COVID-19 doesn’t just infect humans.

Animals including tigers, dogs, cats, gorillas, goats, and even fruit and Coca-Cola all tested positive for COVID-19. Since coronaviruses are very common and were “discovered” in the 1960s, doesn’t this reinforce that these tests are pointless for diagnosing illness, but perfect for creating hysteria and the justification for draconian measures?


#25 – According to real science, face masks do not stop viral transmission.

The wearing of face masks was widely panned in the early months of the “pandemic” by nearly everyone including Dr. Anthony Fauci, former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, former CDC Director Robert Redfield, the New England Journal of Medicine, OSHA, and the WHO. A USA Today article from February 2020 documented Fauci’s original stance on masks:

The only people who need masks are those who are already infected to keep from exposing others. The masks sold at drugstores aren’t even good enough to truly protect anyone, Fauci said. “If you look at the masks that you buy in a drugstore, the leakage around that doesn’t really do much to protect you,” he said. “People start saying, ‘Should I start wearing a mask?’ Now, in the United States, there is absolutely no reason whatsoever to wear a mask.”

In a Dave Rubenstein Show interview in May 2019, Fauci called mask wearing “paranoid” and advised against it as protection against infectious diseases.

An article by Bill Hennessy documented the New England Journal of Medicine’s stance on masks, citing:

For those of you who shout “science” like it’s a Tourette tick, this is from the New England Journal of Medicine on May 21, 2020: 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 are we ordered to wear masks? Symbolism. From the same article in NEJM: It is also clear that masks serve symbolic roles. Masks are not only tools, they are also talismans that may help increase health care workers’ perceived sense of safety, well-being, and trust in their hospitals.

On April 3, 2020 the initial sentiment around universal masking was reversed when President Trump announced that the CDC recommended that citizens wear cloth face masks in public to stop the spread of the virus. States then began issuing mask mandates even for children, and the controversy about their usage has never gone away.


There have been hundreds of face mask studies. One of the best compilations can be found on Life Site News, where they cite 47 studies that confirm masks are ineffective for COVID-19 and 32 additional studies that confirm they have negative health effects. So, the overwhelming scientific consensus confirms what we were told from the very beginning: masks do not work! Wearing a face mask is nothing more than virtue signaling and blind obedience to today’s scientific cult leaders.

#26 – There are several other reasons that could explain the sickness and death supposedly caused by COVID-19.

  • Exposure to 5G radiation. The National Institutes of Health published a study called “5G Technology and Induction of Coronavirus in Skin Cells.” The study stated, “In this research, we show that 5G millimeter waves could be absorbed by dermatologic cells acting like antennas, transferred to other cells and play the main role in producing Coronaviruses in biological cells.” Though the document is still available, it was withdrawn from NIH’s PubMed site. Interestingly, Wuhan, the city that birthed the “pandemic,” was the first Chinese city to install and utilize 5G just before the appearance of this “virus.” Perhaps this is also connected to Elon Musk’s and Jeff Bezos’ efforts to put thousands of satellites into space? Many symptoms attributed to COVID-19 are also symptoms of 5G exposure.

  • Nitrogen Dioxide exposure. A research article in Science Direct, originally published in April 2020, concluded that chronic exposure to Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) could have contributed to COVID-19 fatalities in places like Italy, Spain, France, Germany, and “maybe across the whole world.”

  • Air Pollution. Harvard scientists discovered that a small increase in long-term exposure to air pollution (fine particulate matter – PM5) led to a large increase in the COVID-19 death rate. Wuhan (China), New York City, Lombardy (Italy), and many of the initial coronavirus hotspots also have extremely high levels of air pollution. Could people who were poisoned by air pollution have been misdiagnosed with COVID-19? See also here.

  • Vitamin B1 deficiency (beriberi) and tuberculosis. A fascinating series of articles by health journalist Bill Sardi document how COVID-19 symptoms such as “racing heart, chronic headache, crushing fatigue and even shortness of breath can only be explained by a deficiency of vitamin B1. No coronavirus, flu bug, or any other infection produces the symptoms observed with COVID-19.” See here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. Sardi also posited that COVID-19 diagnoses could also be cases of tuberculosis since many of the symptoms are the same.

  • The COVID-19 “pandemic” could be attributed to SARS-CoV-2 being transmitted through MMR, polio, and flu vaccines. Also see here.


#27 – Social distancing is a sham.


An article in the UK paper, The Telegraph, stated there is no scientific proof social distancing works and that it is based on very fragile evidence. Even the world-renowned British Medical Journal said social distancing was based on outdated science. Could it really be that social distancing was actually borne from a teenage girl’s science project and adopted as a worldwide policy to keep people apart and afraid of each other?


#28 – Lockdowns do not stop viral transmission, but do destroy people’s lives and the economy.

  • Stanford Professor Jay Bhattacharya stated, “Itʼs not possible to eradicate (the coronavirus) with a lockdown. We have to come to terms with that… (the lockdown strategy is) doomed to fail and itʼs also going to be counterproductive.”

  • Prominent medical researcher Knutt M. Wittkowski criticized the lockdown approach saying, “With all respiratory diseases, the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity. About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected, or they had very, very mild symptoms, especially if they are children. So, it’s very important to keep the schools open and kids mingling to spread the virus to get herd immunity as fast as possible…”

  • Lockdowns and staying inside for weeks and months serve to weaken the immune system, say Drs. Dan Erickson and Artin Masseh in Bakersfield, California. The video of the doctors making these statements was censored on YouTube for violating its terms of service.

  • Studies showed that unemployment caused by lockdowns leads to adverse health effects including stroke, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, emotional and psychiatric problems, and suicide.

  • Researchers at Well Being Trust and the Robert Graham Center for Policy Studies in Family Medicine and Primary Care estimated that 75,000 people could die from alcohol, drug abuse and suicide, calling them “deaths of despair.”

  • The application of lockdowns was arbitrary and inconsistent. Why were liquor and cannabis stores allowed to stay open when churches were forced to close? Why were some businesses (mostly big box stores and major corporations) deemed essential while others were shuttered and forced to apply for government handouts just to survive?

If lockdowns worked, the “pandemic” should have ended as early as summer 2020! Much more could be said on this topic, but I think you get the point.

#29 – Quarantining healthy people is tyrannical and goes against all conventional wisdom.


The Great Barrington Declaration, signed by close to 60,000 scientists and medical professionals and over 800,000 lay people, advised that only the sick should be quarantined. The declaration states, “The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection.”


Focused Protection has been standard practice for every previous epidemic or pandemic situation. Healthy people should be free to resume normal life and risk exposure. National and regional lockdowns which quarantine the healthy with the sick are nonsensical and have only served to prolong the “pandemic” situation.


#30 – Risk to children is extremely minimal.

  • A study by Iceland company deCode Genetics revealed that “children under 10 are less likely to get infected than adults and if they get infected, they are less likely to get seriously ill…even if children do get infected, they are less likely to transmit the disease to others than adults. We have not found a single instance of a child infecting parents.”

  • Data from WorldOMeter showed that children aged 0-17 years have a 0.02-0.06% share of world COVID-19 deaths, which is essentially zero.

  • A New England Journal of Medicine article advocated for schools to reopen for in person learning, stating “From a clinical standpoint, most children 1 to 18 years old experience mild or no illness from COVID-19 and are much less likely than adults to face severe consequences from the infection.”

  • Scott Atlas, former member of Trump’s coronavirus task force, stated “We know who is at risk. Only 0.2 percent of U.S. deaths have been people younger than 25, and 80 percent have been in people over 65; the average fatality age is 78.

  • A JAMA Pediatrics study of North American pediatric hospitals flatly stated that “our data indicate that children are at far greater risk of critical illness from influenza than from COVID-19.”

#31 – Though often vilified, marginalized, and censored, other treatments for COVID-19 exist and are proven to be effective, including:

  • Vitamin D

  • Vitamin C

  • Ivermectin (the human formula, not the horse version)

  • Budesonide

  • Nutritional and Oxidative Therapies


#32 – Hospitals being full to capacity with COVID-19 patients is greatly exaggerated.


See here, here, here, here, here. As seen from these stories, when hospitals are full, there are many reasons besides COVID-19. The current shortage of nurses due to vaccine mandates is also causing hospital closures, service restrictions and bed shortages.


#33 – George Floyd protests proved “COVID-19 prevention measures” had nothing to do with public health.


The protests that erupted over the death of George Floyd violated social distancing and, in many instances, mask wearing rules. The protests were encouraged by leftist politicians and mainstream media. Other events where crowds gathered such as the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota or organized lockdown protests were deemed “super spreader” events and widely condemned by these same leftists. This blatant hypocrisy shows that this is a political pandemic more than anything else.


#34 – Public officials’ hypocrisy in violating their own rules also prove “COVID-19 prevention measures” had nothing to do with public health.


I’ll just list some of their names; you probably know the instance(s).

  • Gavin Newsom

  • Nancy Pelosi

  • Lori Lightfoot

  • Gretchen Whitmer

  • Justin Trudeau

  • Barack Obama

  • Boris Johnson

  • Bill de Blasio

  • and the list goes on and on!

Bureaucrats have created “rules for thee, but not for me” and love to openly flaunt their self-perceived superiority every chance they get!


#35 – There is strong evidence that the coronavirus “pandemic” was pre-planned.


Besides the widely known Event 201 pandemic exercise, governments have been conducting exercises to prepare for a global pandemic for a long time. I have already documented the many exercises, documents, legal proceedings, and conferences that have taken place (please see The Back Story and The Ramp Up from my COVID Chronicles series). Since all this planning has been taking place for at least 20 years, why did everything go so poorly?

#36 – Governments have tried to inflate illnesses into pandemics when not justified before.


See Swine Flu 1976, Zika, SARS 2002-2004, H1N1 2009, and MERS.


#37 – The WHO reacted slowly and allowed China to keep air travel going, which allowed the “virus” to spread internationally.


You would think that with the foreknowledge gathered during the various pandemic exercises conducted over the last two decades, something simple like shutting down air travel in the place where the outbreak first occurred would have been one of the first priorities. However, that did not happen. Why is that?


#38 – Constant confusion and misinformation from public health and government officials keep people fearful and bewildered.


Remember the mantra “order out of chaos” because this is the modus operandi of the “global elite.” They have purposefully sowed confusion and chaos regarding the nature of the “virus,” where it originated, how it is transmitted, its lethality, how variants emerge, how the tests work, whether one can develop natural immunity, if masks work and if so, how many need to be worn, and on and on. They continually contradict previous statements that seemed definitive at the time, keeping the naïve public constantly off balance and in a perpetual state of cognitive dissonance. Why anyone still trusts anything coming out of their constantly lying orifices is completely baffling! Nevertheless, many still do trust, and their ignorance and obedience serve to perpetuate the “pandemic” and the slippery slope to complete tyranny!


#39 – The “pandemic” ushered in the rise of authoritarian leadership just as predicted in the
