A feature on Israel’s fourth wave in The Week of August 21 describes how, despite 78% of adults having been double jabbed, 90% of the new infections are in largely vaccinated over 50s, and nearly 60% of gravely ill patients are fully jabbed, mainly with the Pfizer mRNA shot. The article offers no real analysis beyond a statement of waning immunity and the need for a third shot. However, the real implication is that these vaccines are designed to suppress symptoms but not to prevent transmission; and a business model based on the need for boosters is great news for Pharma investors. Moreover, there is an agreement among mainstream ‘trusted media’ sources to repeat the mantra that the vaccines are ‘safe and effective’ in the interests of combating ‘vaccine hesitancy’ and to ignore reports of deaths and adverse reactions even though these are designed as a red flag system for safety issues.

The latest EU European Medicines Agency figures to August 28 record 23,252 reports of deaths and 2,189,537 injuries (1,076,917 serious) following the Covid shots, the majority of which occur in the first three days. CDC figures to August 30 record 13,627 deaths (plus 1,429 foetal deaths in pregnant women who took a Covid shot) and 2,826,646 injuries. These figures represent double the total number of other reports of deaths, mainly in infants - 6,098 between 1 Jan 1991 and Nov 30 2020, over a period of nearly 30 years.  To put this in perspective, the swine flu shot in the US was shut down after just over 50 deaths, and 190 million annual shots resulted in only around 150 reported deaths. Now we have a situation where governments are turning up the social pressure for vaccination while these safety issues are being marginalized despite research showing that fewer than 10% of cases are actually reported, which means multiplying the above figures by at least 10. Moreover, there is no system of government compensation and the companies involved are immune from prosecution.

This new book by Joseph Mercola and Ronnie Cummins with a foreword by Robert F Kennedy Jr will come as a shocking revelation to readers who have only been exposed to the mainstream Covid narrative. They may identify Mercola as the leading member of the Disinformation Dozen called out by the Centre for Country Digital Hate and publicised worldwide, even though Facebook has now repudiated its claims. Such is the level of hit-piece pressure and personal threats that have been exerted on Mercola that he has removed his 25-year archive of 15,000 articles from his website, and takes down any new content after 48 hours. He sees this as a gesture of appeasement, but in reality his enemies would like to see him crushed – and the overall context here is a continuing paradigm war between natural and pharmaceutical approaches to agriculture, food and health in which the current battleground is the Covid narrative; this is what Manuel Castells calls communication power. The co-author Ronnie Cummins is the activist founder-director of the Organic Consumers Association, a US-based network of more than 2 million consumers dedicated to safeguarding organic standards and promoting healthy, just and regenerative systems, farming and commerce.

Within this overall context lie the realities of money, power and influence in economic, political and institutional terms. The WHO, GAVI, the FDA, the CDC and NIH are effectively beholden to and/or funded by Big Pharma, and it dominates the medical system as a whole, including universities, research institutions, medical schools, journals and education; all this gives rise to often undeclared systemic conflicts of interest – Britain’s Chief Scientist Sir Patrick Vallance formerly held the same role at GSK, while the parent company of Google has extensive pharmaceutical interests. The CDC has over 50 patents on vaccines, on which it receives royalties. Bill Gates is the major private funder of the WHO and GAVI and, along with partners such as the World Economic Forum and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, staged Event 201 as scenario planning for a pandemic in October 2019 only two months before it actually broke out. The communications plan rehearsed at this meeting has been carried out to the letter in terms of controlling the narrative and censoring anything else as misinformation, disinformation or conspiracy theory.

In 2018, the Johns Hopkins Center published a scenario document on the ‘SPARS’ pandemic 2025 to 2028 available for download on its website. The point here is not to equate foresight with deliberate planning but rather to note the role of vaccines in these scenarios and also that Bill Gates, the world’s leading investor in vaccines, said at the outset that the whole planet would need to be vaccinated before we could get back to normal. As readers may be aware, the censorship of non-mainstream opinions has been unprecedented and scientific debate stifled by the mainstream scientific consensus. Physicians who have stood against these received opinions have not only been censored worldwide but often lost their positions, while Dr Robert Malone, the inventor of the mRNA technology, was deplatformed and any reference to his role in this respect removed from Wikipedia when he expressed growing safety concerns about the vaccines.

Prof Didier Raoult, the world’s leading virologist, has been removed from his post by the French government for his views on vaccines and early treatment. The suppression of early treatment in the relentless drive for vaccinations has been one of the great scandals of the pandemic and it is well covered in this book. Tens of thousands of people could have been saved by such early interventions (see for instance the downloadable protocol on the website of the American Association for Physicians and Surgeons) – I recommend the scientifically-grounded lectures of Dr Peter McCullough in this respect – he was the leading author of peer-reviewed papers and the protocol itself while treating many patients of his own. His reward for a stand of heroic integrity has been professional vilification – but for every physician who has stood up, there are at least 30 who agree but do not dare to do so. All these themes are thoroughly covered in this highly informative book.

Among the key issues are manipulation of PCR test figures and death certificates to reinforce public panic. A September 2020 study in Clinical Infectious Diseases found that the accuracy of a PCR test at 35 cycles or higher produces a 97% false positive rate in usually asymptomatic people due to picking up residual viral sequences – yet the WHO recommended 45 cycles and the CDC 40 – a figure now lowered to 28 when testing vaccinated subjects, while this very test used as the driver of the narrative is scheduled to be removed at the end of the year. The CDC website (p. 54) states that “when Covid-19 is reported as a cause of death on the death certificate, it is coded and counted as death due to Covid-19.” In other words, such a directive conflates deaths from Covid with deaths with Covid, producing a highly inflated figure also used to drive vaccination. CDC’s own figures found that in only 6% of cases was Covid listed as the sole cause of death, and that in the other 94%, there was an average of 2.6 comorbidities. This leads the authors to observe that Covid-19 seems to act as a trigger “for pre-existing conditions of an ageing and increasingly chronically ill population” with a high prevalence of obesity, inflammation and diabetes.

There are two more significant themes worth highlighting here: the debate about lab origins, and the use of the pandemic to bring in the Great Reset. In early 2020, anyone questioning the animal origin of the virus was dismissed as a conspiracy theorist, and the chairman of the Eco-Health Alliance, Dr Peter Daszak arranged for a letter from himself and other prominent scientists to be published in The Lancet strongly condemning “conspiracy theories suggesting that Covid-19 does not have a natural origin” (The Lancet also published a widely reported flawed paper on hydroxychloroquine based in false data – it was later retracted but the damage was done). The back story here is that the US military, NIH and Dr Anthony Fauci’s NIAID have been funding Daszak, Ralph Beric at North Carolina and Fort Detrick and Dr Shi Zhengli at Wuhan in gain-of-function research at dual use biowarfare/biodefence labs as a way of getting round the Biological Weapons Treaty. Through DARPA, the military also contributed $25m to Pfizer and Moderna for initial research into mRNA technology, which until the 2020 vaccines was called in gene therapy

This research involves weaponizing viruses through genetic manipulation to optimize their infectiousness to humans by means of the spike protein binding to human ACE-2 receptors – thus becoming a transmissible bioweapon by any other name, even if one of the intentions was to develop a corresponding vaccine. Daszak himself stated in February 2016 – “We need to increase public understanding for the need for medical countermeasures such as a pan coronavirus vaccine. A key driver is the media and the economics will follow the hype. We need to use that hype to our advantage to get to the real issues. Investors will respond if they see profit at the end of the process.” You can draw your own conclusion in the light of recent events. Politically, both the US and China find themselves in a compromised and embarrassing position, although Mercola in a recent post noted that the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s recent report entitled, “The Origins of COVID-19: An Investigation of the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” presents solid evidence that many of the “conspiracy theories” about the virus were in fact true. For example, using some intelligence reports and other public documents, the committee found that:

“… we now believe it’s time to completely dismiss the wet market as the source of the outbreak. We also believe the preponderance of the evidence proves the virus did leak from the WIV and that it did so sometime before September 12, 2019.”

They also presented evidence of genetic modification:

“This report also lays out ample evidence that researchers at the WIV, in conjunction with U.S. scientists and funded by both the PRC [People’s Republic of China] government and the U.S. government, were conducting gain of-function research on coronaviruses at the WIV …In many instances, the scientists were successful in creating 'chimeric viruses' — or viruses created from the pieces of other viruses — that could infect human immune systems. With dangerous research like this conducted at safety levels similar to a dentist’s office, a natural or genetically modified virus could have easily escaped the lab and infected the community.”

The clear upshot of this is that the public should demand that such research be immediately banned under international law, and that China should suspend its plans to create a further 25 Level 4 biosafety labs. As Russell and Einstein said in relation to nuclear weapons in the 1950s, “Remember your humanity and forget the rest.”

In an article last December, Rob Verkerk of the Alliance for Natural Health International explained how the pandemic is being used to bring in Klaus Schwab’s WEF [World Economic Forum] Great Reset and a technocratic Fourth Industrial Revolution – in the meantime, his YouTube channel has been removed ‘for violating community guidelines.’ Other elements besides vaccine passports already planned by the EU in March 2019 include more extensive digital biometric ID (see ID2020 also supported by Gates and the WEF), an Internet of Things and Bodies linked to the Cloud and enabling 24/7 surveillance and social control, and digital currency linked to digital ID (see Catherine Austin Fitts). The WEF expression ‘build back better’ has been used rhetorically by leaders around the world, but behind the feelgood language of sustainability, social justice and climate smart agriculture (smart = technocratic) lies a dystopic and dehumanized vision merging health and national security (a new HARPA modelled on DARPA has just been launched, along with the Wellcome Leap headed up by former DARPA Director Regina Dugan). Now is the time to demand truth and transparency, to promote regenerative food and agriculture systems along with an integrated approach to health and a harmonious relationship with the Earth – this courageous book provides detailed and vital information for us to unite in a global movement for health and freedom that truly respects human dignity and participatory democracy rather than coercing us through fear and panic into a Chinese-style digital dictatorship.
