Hysteria sells and…

It’s hysteria time again. Let me run it down for you.

This is the word: The dreaded Zika virus! Watch out! It’s carried by mosquitos! It can cause birth defects—babies are born with very small heads and impaired brains!

Here are a few scare headlines that were running on Drudge as of 1/26:

“Brazil sends 200,000 soldiers to stop spread of Zika.”

“Stay away from Rio if you’re pregnant.”

“’Losing battle’ against mosquito.”

“Virus threatening two continents.”

Want more hysteria? The Daily Mail indicates pregnant women are being warned not to travel to 22 countries in Latin America and Africa. Several Zika cases are being reported in Italy, the UK, and Spain.

Then we have this from the Washington Post (“As Zika virus spreads, El Salvador asks women not to get pregnant until 2018,” 1/22, with italics added):

“The rapid spread of the Zika virus has prompted Latin American governments to urge women not to get pregnant for up to two years, an extraordinary precaution aimed at avoiding birth defects believed to be linked to the mosquito-borne illness.

…a potentially culture-shaping phenomenon in which the populations of several nations have been asked to delay procreation. The World Health Organization says at least 20 countries or territories in the region, including Barbados and Bolivia, Guadeloupe and Guatemala, Puerto Rico and Panama, have registered transmission of the virus.”

So we now have governments warning women not to get pregnant. A new form of depopulation. Don’t get pregnant. If you do, and a mosquito bites you, you could give birth to a severely damaged child. Not only that, we have massive advisories against travel, for pregnant women. And 200,000 soldiers in Brazil, the site of the upcoming Olympics, are going door to door and distributing information about this new “plague.” Are the soldiers also telling men and women not to have sex? Who knows?

So let’s take a little side trip to Scam City and examine the science behind the Zika virus and the assertion that it is causing birth defects.

Before a virus can be said to cause disease, a few procedures need to occur. First, the virus must be proved to exist. It has to be isolated from a human carrier as diseased tissue, and then that tissue has to be put under an electron microscope, where many, many (Zika) viruses can be seen. Second, tests have to be run on many suspected human cases, and these tests have to reveal very large amounts of Zika in the body. That’s your basic starter kit for deciding that a virus might be causing actual human disease.

In examining the published literature on Zika, so far I see no reports of diseased-tissue removal from a human, followed by electron microscope photos revealing large amounts of Zika.

As far as diagnostic tests on suspected human cases are concerned, I see, as usual, two major types of testing: antibody, and PCR. I’ll briefly review the egregious flaws in these tests.

Antibodies are immune-system scouts which identify invaders in the body. The antibodies ID these villains so other elements of the immune system can repel and destroy them. When a test shows that antibodies geared to a specific virus/villain (like Zika) are present in the body, it means the body has contacted that Zika virus—if the test was done well and didn’t come up with a falsely-positive result. False positives are frequent. But more disastrously, proving the body had contact with a specific virus says absolutely nothing about whether the patient is sick or will get sick. In fact, before 1985, a positive antibody test was generally taken to be a good sign: the body’s immune system had encountered and overcome the invader. After 1985, the “science” was turned upside down: a positive test meant the person was sick or going to get sick. And that meant, of course, more (false) diagnoses of disease and more profit from treatments. In announced “epidemics,” health agencies can falsely inflate the numbers of cases to the moon.

The PCR is a very sophisticated and tricky test to run. It is prone to errors. It takes a tiny, tiny amount of material assumed to be a fragment of a virus, and it amplifies (blows up) that fragment so it can be observed. The first problem with the test is: did technicians indeed choose a tiny sample that actually is a piece of the virus in question? Or is it simply a bit of genetic debris? The second problem is: the test, despite claims to the contrary, says nothing reliable about the amount of virus (like Zika) that is in the patient’s body. Why is this important? Because you need a great deal of virus in the body to begin to say it is causing disease. A very small amount is trivial.

With these two useless tests in tow—the antibody and the PCR—researchers and doctors don’t have a meaningful clue about whether a patient is ill as a result of Zika infection. All case-number reports are suspect, to say the very least.

Therefore, attributing very serious problems to Zika on a worldwide basis is insupportable and speculative. It isn’t science.

And to make the leap to claiming the virus is causing pregnant women to give birth to babies with very small heads and impaired brains is absurd.

Who benefits from this Zika “science”? Certainly, the people who are releasing genetically engineered (GE) mosquitos as a form of disease-prevention. The big honcho is a company named Oxitec. So far, the GE mosquitos are being used to curtail dengue fever in Brazil, Malaysia, and the Cayman Islands. Florida is next up on the agenda. But with Zika coming on strong in the press as a “mosquito-carried plague,” how long will it be before special bugs are modified to save the planet from this new threat…

Just a few problems with the GE mosquitos, though.

A town in Brazil has reported continuing elevated levels of dengue fever since the GE (genetically engineered) mosquitoes have been introduced to combat that disease.

The scientific hypothesis is: the trickster GE bugs (males) will impregnate natural females, but no actual next generation will occur beyond the larval stage. However, this plummeting birth rate in mosquitoes is the only “proof” that the grand experiment is safe. No long-term health studies have been done—this is a mirror of what happened when GMO crops were introduced: no science, just bland assurances.

Needless to say, without extensive lab testing, there is no way to tell what these GE mosquitoes are actually harboring, in addition to what researchers claim. That’s a major red flag.

Wherever these GE mosquitoes have been introduced, or are about to be introduced, the human populations have not been consulted for their permission. It’s all being done by government and corporate edict. It’s human experimentation on a grand scale.

There are concerns that, if indeed the dengue-carrying mosquitos are actually wiped out, the vacuum may be filled by another dengue carrier, the Asian Tiger Mosquito—which breeds much faster.

Other than that, everything is perfect. Let’s have a big parade and welcome genetically-engineered mosquitos to planet Earth.

Back to the Zika virus: what actually is causing mothers to give birth to babies with very small heads and impaired brains? If this is indeed a fairly recent phenomenon, I would start with a deep and very specific investigation of the genetically engineered mosquitos that were recently released in Brazil to decimate the dengue-fever mosquitos.

Then I would pay attention to a report like this (Rio Times, 5/5/15, “Brazil Shown to Be Largest Global Consumer of Pesticides”):

“The use of pesticides in Brazil grew by more than 162 percent from 2000 to 2012, according to the latest report by the Brazilian Association of Collective Health (ABRASCO), making the country the number one consumer of pesticides in the world. According to the entity, the Brazilian agriculture sector purchased more than 823,000 tons of pesticides in 2012.”

“The ABRASCO report, titled ‘An Alert of the Impacts of Pesticides on Health’, was released last week in Rio de Janeiro. The report includes scientific studies including data from the National Cancer Institute that shows a direct link between the use of pesticides and health problems.”

A quote inside the report:

“Not only are we using more [pesticides] but we are using more powerful, stronger pesticides. We have been forced to import pesticides which were not even allowed in Brazil to combat pests which attacked GM soybean and cotton plants…”

“…22 of the fifty main active ingredients used in pesticides in Brazil today have been banned in most other countries. “

How about an in-depth investigation, on the ground, probing the connection between these pesticides and birth defects?

Or is it better, for the chosen few, to use a virus as a false cover story, in order to explain away horrendous damage from what amounts to chemical warfare?

****Try this study, published in Environmental Health Perspectives on July 1, 2011: “Urinary Biomarkers of Prenatal Atrazine Exposure…” Here is a quote referring to what is now being called a prime Zika effect:

“The presence versus absence of quantifiable levels of [the pesticide] atrazine or a specific atrazine metabolite was associated with fetal growth restriction… and small head circumference… Head circumference was also inversely associated with the presence of the herbicide metolachlor.”

Getting the picture?

Of course, both Atrazine and metolachlor pesticides are used in Brazil. Why is this connection to birth defects being overlooked? If this is still a serious question, in this day and age, and if the answers aren’t obvious, the questioner just arrived from Pluto.

I have walked the path of making these connections since 1987. The covert op is played exactly like the old shell game. Look here, don’t look there. This is important, that means nothing.

Tons and tons and tons of various pesticides and other poisonous chemicals…but forget that, it’s all because of a virus.

“A virus” is the best false cover story ever invented.

    “The dreaded Zika virus! Watch out! It’s carried by mosquitos! It can cause birth defects—babies are born with very small heads and impaired brains!

    So the infected unborn children are granted US Citizen status with voting rights upon birth?

  • The virus has been in the professional literature for longer than Jon Rappoport has been in any literature.

    • John Cook

      But the effect of shrunken brains has NEVER before been recorded. I think it’s probable that it’s caused by the dtap immunisation injection.

      • Anencephaly is more than common enough to have been recorded on a daily basis somewhere in the world.

        • John Cook

          So? Show me an association with this virus more than a few years old.

          • “The virus was first isolated in April 1947 from a rhesus macaque monkey that had been placed in a cage in the Zika Forest of Uganda, near Lake Victoria by the scientists of the Yellow Fever Research Institute (since 1977 called The Uganda Virus Research Institute, or UVRI), established in 1936 by the Rockefeller Foundation in Entebbe, Uganda; a second isolation from the mosquito Aedes africanus followed at the same site in January 1948[16],[17]”

            There are references back to 1907 in the deep web, but I’m not going to pay for them. You can try Mednar for yourself.

          • John Cook

            What the fuk are you going on about? I’m not saying it does not exist, just that it does not cause small brains – or at least hasn’t in the past.
            Stop waving your ‘research cred’ dick around and try to find any previous example of it doing what it’s supposed to be doing now. Or any reason for it to have changed.

          • Then why did you ask for a temporal justification instead of a epidemiological one?

          • John Cook

            Duh, because, my learned friend, that is the exact issue here. A known virus is suddenly supposed to be causing a new effect. They are acting as if small brains in babies is a known effect of the zika virus. It is Not. THAT is why I refer to the time, to show that it is a NEW effect they are claiming.

          • You didn’t ask for an epidemiological timeline.

          • John Cook

            Do you do this for a living?

          • Think?

          • John Cook

            No, I meant refuse to take my meaning, which is that attributing this epidemic of small heads/brains to zika virus is a scam.

          • I have read enough about virology and the mutation of viruses to know that it is something that can happen. As to whether that particular virus is the same one as I tracked back to 1910 or not, and has mutated to do what it is being claimed to, is a question that I doubt that anyone on this forum could academically answer. Scams are another matter.

          • John Cook

            The reason I think it is a scam is that this change is not mentioned. They act as if this is just what zika virus does normally.

          • Since any virus can mutate with any infection, it could be as new a change as any other mutation. This is the primary reason why vaccines are virtually useless against viruses, whose genomes can change with each generation, sometimes several times an hour.

          • John Cook

            Rather a big change wouldn’t you say, from harmless to deadly?
            BTW, are you aware of how this mutation happens? Apparently if a cell is infected by two viruses at the same time the genetic material mixes and you get a blended virus result. That is why they were so worried about bird flu mixing with a human flu.

          • Apparently, you are unfamiliar with how viruses reproduce, called transcription, and with how easy it is to make errors during the transcription process, which become mutations in the new viruses. Since these errors can occur with every transcription cycle, mutations can occur with every transcription cycle, which begins anew with every infected cell. Think of it as compound interest, which it is quite similar to, and project the compound interest over one hundred years since the virus was first sequenced, and you’ve got a pretty easy path from benign to deadly.

          • blindjustice

            Your right John, at least about mutating virus’s. Especially if they have been genetically modified in a lab and spread by infected mosquito. Read this. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-01-29/zika-outbreak-epicenter-same-area-genetically-modified-mosquitoes-released-2015

            It may be that BJ, but whatever causes it I think it’s Not an accident. Not a quirk of nature. Just more of the depopulation agenda.

          • Ana Prada

            Do you know anything about virus structures, John? If you do I have a few questions.

          • John Cook

            Maybe.

        • Wags71

          And Zika virus affects 1 out of 5 people, giving them mild symptoms. It never was anything like they’re portraying it on the news now where everyone who is pregnant in certain countries are going to give birth to monsters who will tear themselves out of the mother’s womb.

      • emmanuelozon

        Nah, the shrunken brains are an evolutionary step coinciding with the use of smart phones.

        • John Cook

          Lol. Yeah, probably be an advantage these days, save one from having to do all the dumbing down normally required to get along.

      • BigGaySteve

        There is a good chance they are only being born now thanks to medical advances.

  • sunshine

    Well, I can’t disagree that the people in those nations should stop having kids. Maybe we should send them birth control? Those kids would just grow up and come here illegally so why not try and prevent their birth in the first place? And the people down there live in shacks and crap in ditches, why bring kids into that?

    • Wags71

      Who is “we”? It’s implied that you’re talking about government, so right there it’s going to be done with evil intentions. Governments around the world could actually solve poverty and educate everyone, but of course that isn’t their goal. It’s the opposite of their goal.

      • Haruka Wind

        There are way too many people living on this planet to ever live an ordinary life and the economy will crash most likely from a lack of resources.

      • sunshine

        I guess “we” would be the American taxpayers that fund all of this crap. I’d rather my money go for birth control to keep more desperate people from being born into misery, than to be funding bombs and wars and other nonsense. But you are right about the goals of our government and they don’t stop anything that they don’t want happening.

  • Guillotine_ready

    Bill Gates invested heavily in modified mosquitoes that were supposed to deliver vaccines, where is the choice in that?
    Bill Gates gave a talk where he said that if the vaccine program was successful the population would be reduced WTF? You can still find the video out there.
    Like the Governor of Michigan who causes irreparable damage to children and adults in an entire city, neither are in jail.
    Anyone wearing a badge who is not hauling a psychopath to jail every day is not only not doing their job, they are a big part of the problem.

  • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

    Zika, Ebola, Legionnaire’s, Noro virus etc… Either false flags or biological warfare waged against mankind. Does it matter anymore?

    • Wags71

      I don’t think this is a false flag as much as it is a cover story for either vaccines or pesticides or GMO mosquitoes.

      • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

        Very possibly-either scenario gives one reason to distrust the government. As if we needed more reasons….

      • timwebb1000 .

        A false flag IS a cover story.
        Keep up.

        • Wags71

          You don’t think I’m keeping up? Save it for someone who gets their news from tv.

  • Wags71

    Can’t decide if I believe Jim Stone or Jon Rappoport on this one. Both could have the answer.

    This quote has me leaning towards Jon:

    “The presence versus absence of quantifiable levels of [the
    pesticide] atrazine or a specific atrazine metabolite was associated
    with fetal growth restriction… and small head circumference… Head
    circumference was also inversely associated with the presence of the
    herbicide metolachlor.”

  • ccambridge

    And the government and big pharma can’t wait to force a new vaccine down your throat. Interesting all these diseases coming from Africa where our imperial government t has their biological weapon r & d labs.

  • Haruka Wind

    Lets face it theirs way more than enough people on the planet right now and the third world should take action to stop this outrageous procreation where two parents have eight or more kids. That not only strains the planets resources but having so many children in one household really lowers the quality of those formative years. The home should never resemble the hectic stress filled environment of school.

    A vote for Trump is a vote for the Zika Virus 🙂

    Hmm maybe since Canada doesn’t seem to be affected the dollar will increase in value 😛

    One can only dream.

    What was the last thing mosquitos could carry they said would kill millions? I forget >.>

  • Pete752

    The
    possibility of a Zionist payback against Brazil could also be a factor
    since Brazilian Justice Department decided not to use an Israeli
    security firm to provide security for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. The
    Zika virus has been known of for more than 70 years and has never been
    associated with causing anything more than mild influenza type symptoms
    which usually subsided after less than a week. Because a new Tdap
    vaccine, that was launched in Brazil in May of 2015, there has been a
    13000% increase in the number of Brazilian infants born with shrunken
    brain syndrome up from 150 reported cases in 2014 to over 4000 since
    November 1/15 thru today Jan. 29/16. The vaccine theory fits the time line like a hand in glove. We live in perilous times.

  • LiberalsRLost

    Scam? could be..

    AND TO BURY THE NEXT ZIKA SCAM, WHICH IS LABELING IT A “PANDEMIC”:
    Zika is a mild virus that has NEVER caused a single death in the entire
    70 plus years it has been known about, 80 percent of the people who get
    it show no symptoms at all, and it goes away, with the remaining 20
    percent getting only a mild headache and other minor symptoms. But it
    has a spooky name, will that alone be enough to scam the public? NOT if I have the final word!

    Yes, I just say ‘bring it on’ – I love destroying them…
    I started to earned the art many (about 20) years ago on usenet (look it up). Back then one would have a ‘sig’ file that got attached to every post. If that was true today I’d have something like ‘Beware Hungry Tollovore’ lol

    Another Non-notification. You must be worth hearing Angela why else would Disqus fail reliably to pass on your messages. Don’t know why or how to fix it but I too ‘play’ on FaceBook with my real name ‘John F Cook’ so please find and ‘friend’ me. If ‘They’ don’t want us to connect what else can we do but connect! lol I’ll do the same to you.

    Infant born with microcephaly…

    http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-GrGYzb7VMoA/VlANgIarfpI/AAAAAAAATKc/Fthr07KBNxs/s1600/Microcephaly-baby.jpg

    “In 2014, only about 150 cases [of microcephaly] were reported in Brazil in a year — a surprisingly small amount for a large country with nearly 3 million births a year. The United States, with about 4 million births a year, has an estimated 2,500 cases of microcephaly a year, said Margaret Honein, a CDC epidemiologist.”

    http://www.sfgate.com/news/medical/article/Brazil-270-of-4-120-suspected-microcephaly-cases-6787928.php#photo-9310953

    The small number of microcephaly cases reported in Brazil before 2015 is due to a massive, and blatantly orchestrated, undercounting, as inadvertently confirmed by the World Health Organization’s (WHO) statistics…

    “Microcephaly is a rare condition. One baby in several thousand is born with microcephaly.”

    http://www.who.int/emergencies/zika-virus/microcephaly/en/

    Using the one baby in several thousand criteria WHO provides for the occurrence of microcephaly every year, then Brazil should have been reporting at least 1,000 cases per year (3 million/3000 = 1,000), not 150 cases. This explains why under closer examination the numbers in Brazil are declining from the truly high count of 4,180 cases of microcephaly initially reported, where of the more than 700 cases under review only 270 cases confirm microcephaly, ruling out the 462 other cases.

    If one uses the United States’ statistics of one baby in 1,600 born with microcephaly per year (4 million/2,500), Brazil should be reporting approximately 1,875 cases (3 million/1600) of microcephaly every year, a number that is showing up with the new Brazil count, where 0.3857% of the 700 cases under examination were shown to have microcephaly. So let’s do the math:

    0.3857 x 4,180 = 1,612

    1,612 is only 263 less than the 1,875 cases of microcephaly one would expect to see every year in Brazil if the American incidence of the disease (1 in 1600) were also true in Brazil. So why the scare, you ask? To create public pressure to scale back restrictive abortion laws in central and south America, and undo state restrictions on abortion in the United States, as inadvertently admitted to by two Georgetown University professors and Planned Parenthood…

    This news item examined illustrates the extent of the lies the Marxist co-opted media regurgitates each and every week, if not every day. How numerous are fraudulent news items when compared against truthful news items? This blog has proven that until one has verified the news for oneself, one must assume all news to be lies. Of course most persons have actual lives to live, where the demands of family and employment preclude close examination of the news. For those too pressed for independent research, my blog…
