Is The Jig Up For The C19 Hoax? Could Be...
A suppressed research report from a Johns-Hopkins analyst
reveals the truth.
LAST NIGHT I BECAME AWARE of a report posted on November 22
in the Johns Hopkins newsletter, and then removed four days later. The
report concerns research by Genevieve Briand, assistant program director
of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Hopkins, who
critically analyzed the effect of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths using data
from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in her webinar
titled “COVID-19 Deaths: A Look at U.S. Data.”
Briand discovered that despite what is now claimed to be
266,000+ deaths from a new cause this year (COVID-19), total US deaths
have not gone up at all. As put in the report:
Continuing, we learn of Briand's discovery that purported
COVID-19 (C19) deaths matched at a nearly one-to-one ratio with
decreases in reported deaths from other causes:
Briand soon gets to the "money line", and a debunk of the
JH newsletter's effort to spin her research to suggest that even in the
face of no increase in mortality over previous years, C19 is STILL
somehow the dire killer serving the "New Normal" narrative (as though
someone's "statistically-scheduled" certain death of heart disease is
somehow exacerbated by the fact that he showed indications of a
concurrent C19 infection when expiring at the long-since appointed
Open-eyed consideration of the available evidence has
always put the lie to the C19-is-the-new-plague narrative.
Open-eyed consideration of the available evidence has always
revealed that only wild mischaracterizations of deaths as being from the
virus has led to the hugely-destructive misunderstanding to the
contrary. The only open question is whether the mischaracterization and
the resulting nurturing of panic in many Americans has been deliberate.
(See some discussion of
this question here.)
THANKS ONLY TO THE WONDERFUL WAY-BACK MACHINE, the original
article from which the quotes above are taken can still be accessed
despite an attempt by the JH Newsletter to "disappear" the article four
days after it was first published. The newsletter explains its
suppression as based on alleged fears that the article was being
"misused" to suggest to people exactly what it says, which is apparently
a message not harmonious with the Johns Hopkins C19 agenda.
You can see the whole article as originally-posted
here, and the "retraction" post
here (note: while the retraction page offers a .pdf version of the
pulled post, it is a defective file, featuring illegible charts and
graphs and other flaws). See Briand's webinar presentation

should be believed."

P.S. THE FOREGOING "BREAKING NEWS", if widely enough
disseminated and properly made the focus of attention by enough people,
could make two of the three new articles below somewhat irrelevant, at
least over the long haul. But they had already been written, and even
under the best circumstances the power of Briand's research will take
some time to have its positive effect, and in any event it will be
powerfully resisted by those benefitting from the C19 panic for as long
Thus, I will leave the rest of this newsletter as is, and
still urge everyone to read it all through. But when you're done, spend
some time sending the article above to EVERYONE.
The Purported Rush On Hospitals, and Preparing
For Vaccine Pressure
Debunking some current and upcoming propaganda.
I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL LAST WEEK for some minor surgery
(which nonetheless involved cutting a big chunk off of me, and which
still hurts like hell now three days later...). Doreen and I were
interested to note the emptiness of the parking lot upon our arrival, in
light of the recently-ubiquitous trumpeting about "case" spikes and
overtaxed hospital capacities which are being used to justify renewed
mitigation-measure edicts here in Michigan.
Upon being taken back into the prep area and meeting my
surgical team, my interest was piqued yet again when the nurse
practitioner supervising the prep remarked that she was delighted to
have me in for the procedure, since lately the hospital has been so
empty and the time there so boring. I had to ask: "What? Isn't this
place stuffed to the gills with COVID-19 victims?!"
The nurse rolled her eyes and quietly said words to the
effect of, "Yeah, sure. Like THAT'S really happening...!"
With that, I knew I was in good and honest hands for the
afternoon. I also had a nice confirmation of what all of us preserving
our consciousness during this C19 hobgoblin hoax already knew to be true
about the current hype further bankrupting Amazon competitors and
serving as justification for ongoing conditioning of the American people
to subordination to any lawless diktat issuing forth from "official"
...And About Vaccines:
Clear and widespread understanding is needed to prevent
SO, A NUMBER OF SUCCESSFUL VACCINES are supposedly coming
on line for C19. That's great!
But it's very important that everyone be clear in advance
of the implications of this change in the situation on the ground.
Here is what access to a vaccine will be spun to mean:
Everyone must get vaccinated.
is what access to a vaccine really means: Those afraid of catching C19 can now
make themselves invulnerable to the disease. Consequently, there is then no reasonable pretext for arguing against the rest of us--
even those unvaccinated-- getting back to our normal lives.
Vaccination need never be universal.
The only people that
can be "harmed" by unvaccinated folks are those who
haven't gotten vaccinated themselves. And as a simple matter of
justice and respect for individual rights, no one can properly be made
to be vaccinated in order to spare anyone else from the inconvenience of
That is, once the means exists for the fearful to protect
themselves from the disease, any alleged duty of anyone else to take
protective measures on behalf of others ends, full stop.
To put it in terms of a current obnoxious propaganda meme:
As soon as you can vaccinate yourself, we're no longer "all in this
So, bring on those vaccines! (But place the financial
burden squarely on those wanting them-- it is also not my responsibility
to pay for anyone else's security blanket.)
BTW: The great Van Morrison has produced several new songs in
protest and denunciation of the "lockdowns" and other tyrannical and
inappropriate governmental responses to the C19 story. Enjoy.
...on behalf of a false narrative serving a corrupt real
THE ISRAELIS APPEAR to have again assassinated an
Iranian scientist, this time Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, in purported defense
against the development of an Iranian nuclear weapon which the Israelis
falsely assert is being sought and would be used against them. A couple
1. The endless Israeli calumnies thrown at Iran about its
supposed lust for nuclear weapon are belied not only by Iran
(unlike Israel) being a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty with
its faithful adherence verified steadily over decades by the IAEA, but
also and more dispositively by the simple fact that wealthy Iran (well,
it was stinking rich not long ago...) could easily have bought nukes
from perpetually-impoverished Islamic neighbor Pakistan, with whom Iran
shares a long border across which could go unhindered anything the two
countries might care to exchange. For that matter, Iran could doubtless
have bought nukes from others during the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The charge that Iran lusts for
nuclear weapons fails in the face of the evidence. Notable, too,
is the fact that the charge is leveled by no one except Israel and its
Which of the two countries, Iran or Israel, qualify as
"rogue" would appear to be no contest.
3. As shown, the nonsense about Iranian ambitions for the
possession of nukes is just that: nonsense. It is used just as a pretext
for invoking US support for Israeli aggressions (and to justify US
aggressions on Israel's behalf) against the Islamic republic for the
real reason of hindering Iran's support for Hezbollah, which stands
between Israel and southern Lebanon's water and oil resources, which
Israelis-- and those planning for the creation of Israel before 1948--
have coveted for more than a century.
See the story here.
This real purpose behind the pretense about Iranian nuclear
ambitions is corrupt in the extreme. Americans should recoil from it and
from all who have let themselves be cat's-paws on its behalf.

Not Letting This "Crisis" Go To Waste...
...an important action item opportunity.
FRIENDS, THE SPORADIC BITS OF EASING of the despotic measures to
which most of the country has been subjected this year should not be
allowed to bleed off the head of steam you probably had been developing.
The offenses happened, and they're far from over. Stay hot.
And while you are all warmed up, and while others, if
they're smart, are just as hot, I'd like you to send an email (and
Facebook post, or whatever) with the following content to everyone you
can (with a request that they pass it along, in turn):
[Name], over the last several months you've
watched as over-fed state power has been used to literally destroy
classical Western civilization and impose a new despotic paradigm. No
dissent or debate permitted-- no permission or agreement sought.
YOU KNOW where this will end up if the arrogant
state power being used to make this happen isn't radically diminished in
size, influence, resources and popular support, and exposed as an
opportunistic exploiter of legal ignorance (an ignorance which it has
been nurturing in the average mind for decades).
Those things having not yet happened, you
should be quaking in your boots-- and you probably are.
Isn't it time-- and past time-- for you to
begin helping to make those desperately-needed defensive changes take
place? There is only one way these things can happen short of a
who-knows-what we'll-end-up-with explosion of violence. I'm going to
show it to you.
When you're done with that reading, you'll know
what to do next.
BTW, REMEMBER, ALSO, THAT EVERY AMERICAN has lately been given a stark lesson in the fact
that government officials at all levels will lie to you and violate the
law without batting an eye. They will do so any time it serves their agenda, and
you don't call them out for it.
If you know anyone who has been persisting in denial on the
truth about the income tax, you know such nonsense is usually be
grounded in some version or another of, "That can't be true..." or "They
would never do something like that...". Now's the time to put a pin in
that delusional bubble.
As the C19 hoax has starkly shown, "that" certainly CAN be true, and they
certainly WOULD do something

(Deceitful efforts to discourage Americans from
learning the truth about the "income tax")
FOR ALL THE YEARS SINCE 2003 when
CtC was first published, the government has engaged in a
concerted effort to frighten people away from its truths. This
effort involves official government websites and press releases
touting an occasional court ruling that appears to be at odds
CtC-revelation (but without details sufficient to expose the
real substance of the ruling)--
and sometimes even more mendacious behavior.

EXPECTED when you're trying to explain to someone that
everything they've been encouraged their whole lives to
believe about something as entrenched and significant as the
income tax is basically nonsense. So here's a way to help
cut through the resistance:
Ask your listener how he or she would react if
you were to show an announcement from the Commissioner of
Internal Revenue admitting that the tax doesn't apply to the
earnings of most Americans and is misapplied most of the
time because people don't understand how it works? Or how
about if you showed a ruling from the Supreme Court saying
Now you just have to explain that
you're going to show exactly those things-- but because
the state really doesn't want people to know this, these
things haven't been said quite as forthrightly as we would
all wish. It's going to take a bit more work to take these
admissions in than is sufficient for just reading a press
release. But it'll be worth the effort...

Break out the Wagner, folks…the Germans are back! No,
not the warm, fuzzy, pussified, peace-loving, post-war Germans … the Germans!
You know the ones I mean. The “I didn’t know where the trains were going”
Germans. The “I was just following orders” Germans. The other Germans.
In case you missed it, on November 18, the
German parliament passed a law, the so-called “Infection Protection Act”
(“Das Infektionsschutzgesetz” in German) formally granting the
government the authority to issue whatever edicts it wants under the
guise of protecting the public health. The government has been
doing this anyway — ordering lockdowns, curfews, travel bans, banning
demonstrations, raiding homes and businesses, ordering everyone to wear
medical masks, harassing and arresting dissidents, etc. — but now it has
been “legitimized” by the Bundestag, enshrined into law, and presumably
stamped with one of those intricate official stamps that German
bureaucrats like to stamp things with.
Now, this “Infection Protection Act,” which was
rushed through the parliament, is not in any way comparable to the “Enabling
Act of 1933,” which formally granted the government the
authority to issue whatever edicts it wanted under the guise of
remedying the distress of the people. Yes, I realize that sounds
quite similar, but, according to the government and the German media,
there is absolutely no equivalence whatsoever, and anyone who suggests
there is is “a far-right AfD extremist,” “a neo-Nazi conspiracy
theorist,” or “an anti-vax esotericist,” or whatever.
As the Protection Act was being legitimized
(i.e., the current one, not the one in 1933), tens of thousands of
anti-totalitarian protesters gathered in the streets, many of them
carrying copies of the Grundgesetz (i.e., the constitution of the
Federal Republic of Germany), which the parliament had just abrogated.
They were met by thousands of riot police, who declared the
demonstration “illegal” (because many of the protesters were not wearing
up and arrested hundreds of them, and then
down the rest with water cannons.
The German media — which are totally objective,
and not at all like Goebbels’ Ministry of Propaganda in the Nazi era —
dutifully reminded the German public that these protesters were all
“Corona Deniers,” “far-right extremists,” “conspiracy theorists,” “anti-vaxxers,”
“neo-Nazis,” and so on, so they probably got what they deserved. Also, a
spokesperson for the Berlin police (who bear absolutely no resemblance
to the Gestapo, or the Stasi, or any other notorious
official-ideology-enforcing goons) pointed out that their water cannons
were only being used to “irrigate” the protesters (i.e., not being aimed
directly at them) because there were so many “Corona Denier” children in
According to the government, the German media,
the intelligentsia, and, basically, anyone in public life who wants to
remain there, these “Corona Deniers” are becoming a problem. They are
spreading baseless “conspiracy theories” that are threatening the public
health and causing distress to the German people (e.g., that
the vast majority of those infected suffer only mild to moderate flu
symptoms or, more commonly, no symptoms at all, and that over 99.7%
survive). They are walking around without medical-looking masks,
which is making a mockery of the government and media’s efforts to
convince the public that they are under attack by an apocalyptic plague.
They are posting scientific facts on
the Internet. They are staging these protests and otherwise challenging
the government’s right to declare a “health emergency,” suspend the
German constitution indefinitely, and rule society by decree and force.
Despite the German government and media’s
efforts to demonize anyone not obediently parroting the official “New
Normal” narrative as a “dangerous neo-Nazi Corona Denier,” the “Corona
Denialism” movement is growing, not just in Germany, but
all throughout Europe. Clearly, the time is coming for Germany to
take stronger measures against this threat. The health of the Vater …
uh, the nation, is at stake! Fortunately, this “Infection Protection
Act” will provide the government with the authority it needs to conceive
and carry out some kind of … well, you know, solution. Allowing these
degenerate anti-social deviants to run around challenging the German
government’s absolute power is not an option, not in a time of national
health emergency! These “Nazi-sympathizing
Corona Deniers” must be rooted out and dealt with, mercilessly!
YOU'D THINK HOPKINS IS JOKING, wouldn't you? But he's not. On
November 18 the German Bundestag DID pass
the law he describes.
Apologists shame themselves trying to pretend the new law
isn't anything like the 1933 Enabling Act. They point out that the
dictatorial powers under the new legislation only become available when
"the science" says it's time to panic and the Bundestag declares an
"epidemic situation of national significance". They point out that the
diktats authorized by the act are only temporary, expiring after four
But once the "on"-switch is thrown, the empowered executive
has complete latitude, even unto prohibiting the kind of assemblies of
people that would be necessary in order to organize and bring to bear
opposition to any dictated measure. And though nominally only of
four-week durations, any diktat can be extended under the act as long as
the dictator wishes.
The act requires that "reasonable explanations" be given
for every imposition, but with no mechanism provided for thwarting the
imposition if anyone deems the "explanation" insufficiently reasonable.
To sum it all up, Hopkins hits this nail on the head, hard.
He recognizes that the C19
Kool-Aid disease tracks every past pretense deployed for the
conditioning of societies into tolerant subordination to totalitarian
ambitions of those in power. He recognizes that the measures plumped-for under the
mantle of defending against its supposedly dire threat to us all are, in
fact, totalitarian in character and effect.
And I suspect that Hopkins recognizes the larger threat of
this German legislative fancy...
THE GREATER DANGER OF THE "INFECTION PROTECTION ACT"
(IPA)-- that is, the danger beyond just the destruction of German
prosperity and civil society-- is that Germany is leading the way for
other Western societies once again, just as it led the
way into fascism in the 1930s, and just as its
Prussian ancestors led the way in the late-middle 19th century toward mandatory, tax-financed government
schooling meant to produce citizens satisfactory to
the state's ambitions.
Those examples aren't meant to bad-mouth the Germans, from
whose culture and people much that is sublime has come (i.e., Beethoven,
Black Forest cake, and BMW). It is, rather, to observe that for some
reason Germany's bad public policy ideas-- to which every organized
society is prone at least now and then-- seem to end up embraced by
statists in America (and then elsewhere in the Western World, over
Indeed, since the early years of the last century, and
especially since the madness
of the Truman administration, such violations have become almost
ubiquitous at the federal level. The purported legality of a vast
amount of federal foreign policy and "national security" activity
over the last 75 years has
rested directly on such unconstitutional "emergency power"
The only crack of light in this dark picture is that the
abusive behavior of edict-issuing state governors in response to the C19
hobgoblin has led to a few court rulings recognizing the illegality
of "emergency power" delegations of authority by legislatures (see
here, for instance).
Were the German IPA enacted in America and then tested under the same
judicial standards, it would also be found unconstitutional.
That said, it must be fearfully acknowledged that the many
federal "emergency powers" delegations with which America is already
afflicted-- all of which, as noted above, are of the same flawed legal
character as the IPA-- HAVE survived challenges in what can only be
called corrupt or deeply incompetent federal courts.
Perhaps the recent change in the composition of the Supreme
Court, with a decided tilt toward adherents to "original intent"
construction, will be the cure for that disease. But even the most
well-intentioned courts need help and guidance from the People, so I
hope this forewarning will gear everyone up to pre-emptive opposition to
the adoption of this dangerous and illegal German model.
Let me point out that the general structure of the German
IPA will be very attractive to Joe Biden, especially, and his supporters
and fellow-travelers in the C19 Kool-Aid drinking community. Biden has
been talking steadily of a national mask-mandate, an imposition without
any basis whatever, Constitutional or unconstitutional, unless something
like this IPA is put in place here, so again, we can expect a drive for
just such a measure.
Start denouncing the German version
now, and build the foundations for
broad opposition to any American version.
AT THE SAME TIME, I will continue to remind everyone
that a key defense for the people against despotism is the power
individual Americans have over the purse from which all bad state
behavior is financed.
That defense was put in place by the Founders in
anticipation of just the sort of corruption that reigns today.
