“Johnny Got His Gun”


by Dolton Trumbo


A 1971 American drama anti-war film written and directed by Dalton Trumbo based on his 1939 novel of the same name, with an uncredited writing collaboration by Luis Buñuel. The film stars Timothy Bottoms, Kathy

Fields, Marsha Hunt, Jason Robards, Donald Sutherland and Diane Varsi.


Joe Bonham (Bottoms), a young American soldier hit by an artillery shell during World War I, lies in a hospital bed. He is a quadruple amputee who has also lost his eyes, ears, mouth and nose. He remains conscious and able to reason, but his wounds render him a prisoner in his own body. As he drifts between reality and fantasy, he remembers his old life with his family and girlfriend (Kathy Fields). He also forms a bond of sorts with a young nurse (Diane Varsi) who senses his plight.

Eventually, Joe tries to communicate with his doctors via Morse code by tapping his head, saying "help". He wishes for the Army to put him in a glass coffin in a freak show as a demonstration of the horrors of war. When told that his wish may be impossible to grant, he responds begging to be euthanized, repeatedly saying "kill me".

He ultimately realizes that the Army cannot grant either wish, and will leave him in a state of living death. His sympathetic nurse attempts to euthanize him by clamping his breathing tube, but her supervisor stops her before Joe can succumb. Joe realizes that he will never be released from his state of entrapment and he is left alone, weakly chanting, "S.O.S. Help me."

Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,


We are faced with a conundrum when considering the meaning of the word freedom. For some it means knowing how to follow “the laws of nature” and “the rules and regulations of institutions.” While others interpret freedom to mean the will to follow the dictates of our conscience, to the point of transcending secular codes of conduct and even, if necessary, the laws of physics. Like Truth, the ideal of Freedom is relative; both ideas can easily mutate into their opposites causing much unintended damage.


Indeed, we are living in interesting times, as the Chinese proverb warns; and may the gods protect us….


We take this opportunity to begin presenting excerpts from the ground –breaking book by Joseph Mercola and Ronnie Cummins on the Covid-19 “Scamdemic.”  The text of this well-documented 2021 book is unfortunately not yet available free of charge on the internet, but readers of CEIMSA can read the excerpts provided here and listen to audio excerpts to get an idea of the depth of this critique of the contemporary military-medical-industrial complex for further study.  




The Truth about Covid-19: Exposing The Great Reset, Lockdowns, Vaccine Passports, and the New Normal

(with audio excerpt)

 by Joseph Mercola and Ronnie Cummins




Foreword (by Robert F. Kennedy)……ix


  “A consummate insider, the former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel is known for his admonition that vested power structures should ‘never let a serious crisis to go to waste.’ But this tread-worn strategy – to use crisis to inflame the public terror that paves the road to dictatorial power – has served as the central strategy of totalitarian systems for the millennia.


     “The methodology is, in fact, formulaic, as Hitler’s Luftwaffe commander Hermann Göring, explained during the Nazi war crimes trials at Nuremberg: ‘It is always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it is a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger. It works the same in any country.’


     “The Nazis pointed to the threats from Jews and Gypsies to justify the homicidal authoritarianism in the Third Reich. The dictatorial demagogue, Senator Joseph McCarthy, and the HUAC committee warned against communist infiltration of the State Department and film industry to rationalize loyalty oaths and the blacklist. Dick Cheney used the 911 attack to launch his ‘long war’ against amorphous terrorism and the Patriot Act abridgments that laid the groundwork for the modern surveillance state. Now the medical cartel and its billionaire Big Tech accomplices have invoked the most potent, frightening, and enduring enemy of all – the microbe.


     “And who can blame them? Increasingly the wealth and power of the oligarchy is seldom a potent vessel for populism. Citizens accustomed to voting for their governments are unlikely to support policies that make the rich richer, increase political and social control by corporations, diminish democracy, and reduce their civil rights. So demagogues must weaponize fear to justify their demands for blind obedience and to win public acquiescence for the demolition of civil and economic rights.


     “Of course, the first casualty must always be freedom of speech. After stoking sufficient panic against the hobgoblin du jour, robber barons need to silent protest against their wealth and power grabs.


     “In including free speech in the First Amendment of the Constitution, James Madison argued that all our other liberties depend on this right. Any government that can hide its mischief has license to commit atrocities.”


. . .

     “The free flow of information and self-expression are oxygen and sunlight for representative democracy, which functions best with policies annealed in the boiling cauldron of public debate. It is axiomatic that without free speech, democracy withers.”


     “The most iconic and revered monuments of democracy therefore include the Athenian Agora and Speakers’ Corner at Hyde Park. We can’t hope feeling exhilaration about out noble experiment in self-government when we witness the boisterous, irreverent debates in the House of Commons, or watch Jimmy Stewart’s filibuster scene in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington – an enduring homage to the inseparable bond between debate and democracy.”


     “To consolidate and fortify their power, dictatorships aim to replace those vital ingredients of self-rule – debate, self-expression, dissent, and skepticism – with rigid authoritarian orthodoxies that function as secular surrogates of religion. These orthodoxies perform to abolish critical thinking and regiment populations in blind, unquestioning obedience to undeserving authorities.”(pp.ix-x)



 “Like a prophet in the wilderness, Dr. Mercola has argued for years that good health does not come in a syringe or a pill but from building strong immune systems. He preaches that nutrition and exercise are the most effective medicines, and that public health officials ought to be pushing policies that discourage reliance on pharmaceutical products and that safeguard our food supplies from Big Food, Big Chemical, and Big Ag. These predatory industries naturally consider Dr. Mercola to be Public Enemy #1.


     “Big Pharma’s $9.6 billion annual advertising budget gives these unscrupulous companies control over our news and television outlets. Strong economic drives (pharmaceutical companies are the biggest network advertisers) have long discouraged mainstream media outlets from criticizing vaccine manufacturers. In 2014, a network president, Roger Ailes, told me he would fire any of his news show hosts who allowed me to talk about vaccine safety on the air. ‘Our news division,’ he explained, ‘get up to 70% of ad revenues from pharma in non-election years.’


. . .

     “It’s a bad omen for democracy when citizens can no longer conduct civil, informed debates about critical policies that impact the vitality of our economy, public health, personal freedoms; and constitutional rights. Censorship is violence, and this systematic muzzling of debate – which proponents justify as a measure to curtail dangerous polarization – is actually fueling the polarization and extremism that the autocrats use to clamp down with evermore draconian controls.”(p.xiv)




Chapter 1: “How the Pandemic Plans Unfolded” (by Ronnie Cummins)……1 


“COVID-19 and the profoundly misguided and self-destructive responses to the pandemic have dragged us, kicking and screaming, or cowering in fear, into the most serious world crisis since World War II. The pandemic has shone a harsh spotlight on the fundamental dis-ease and ill health of nations. The ongoing crisis has exposed our vulnerabilities to a variety of life-threatening comorbidities, medical errors, and the corruption of the entire pharmaceutical industry.


     “Beyond its effects on heath and the health care industry, COVID-19 has empowered the global elite more than ever before to manufacture lies and half-truths. Uber-powerful Silicon Valley Big Tech corporations (Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Amazon), Big Pharma, the World Health Organization (WHO), and philanthropic giant Bill Gates have indentured politicians and scientists from across the political spectrum. The result is fearmongering, political polarization;, and social engineering – all wrapped in a disguise of protection.


     A shadowy network of military contractors and bioweapons specialists are hiding behind the façade of biomedical and vaccine research while Big Tech silences their critics. As Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., of Children’s Health Defense points out, the ‘Machiavellian manipulation of this pandemic amounts to nothing less than an attempted coup d’état by big data, by big telecom, by big tech, by big oil and chemical companies and by the global public health cartel led by Bill Gates and the WHO that . . . wants to magnify and amplify its wealth and its power over our lives, over our liberties, that wants to subvert our democracies and to destroy our sovereignty and our control over our lives and our children’s health.’


     “To understand and resolve this unprecedented crisis, we have no choice but to investigate, with a critical eye, the origins, nature, virulence, impacts, prevention;, and treatment of COVID-19. We must examine both the ‘official story’ of the pandemic – force-fed 24/7 to the public by the mass media, Big Tech, and the global public health establishment – and the genuine health threats posed by COVID-19, as a highly transmissible biological trigger that magnifies and intensifies preexisting chronic diseases and comorbidities. The elderly, as well as those with serious preexisting medical conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease, dementia, and hypertension, are underscoring the significant health changes that make us most vulnerable to COVID-19, as well as future pandemics.


     “Besides investigating the nature and the virulence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus itself, we must also examine the effectiveness and collateral damage of various government responses to the pandemic. This collateral damage includes the pandemic’s impact on overall public health (mental and physical), increasing the number of deaths from chronic diseases going untreated as well as engendering a state of chronic stress among hundreds of millions of people.


     “We must also weigh the pandemic’s impact on the economy, poverty, hunger, homelessness, and unemployment, as well as its role in increasing polarization and conflict in the body politic. And finally we must look at the alarming upsurge in authoritarian and totalitarian trends, including censorship, threats to privacy, restrictions on freedom of movement and assembly, health and consumer choice, local and regional sovereignty, and other basic human rights.”(pp.1-2)


. . .


Junk Food, Environmental Pollution, and Chronic Disease.

     “The shocking truth is starting to come out about the real origins of COVID-19. But perhaps more shocking still is the way that this disease has shone a light on the fragility of our food system, the lack of transparency in our regulatory and scientific communities, and the terrifying vulnerabilities of the human body, worn down by a lifetime of junk food and exposure to toxic chemicals.


     “The public health bottom line is that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is not so much a deadly plague in itself, but rather a viral trigger that aggravates and magnifies preexisting chronic medical conditions, what pathologists call comorbidities. And, of course the majority of these comorbidities are diet- and food-related. Others are caused by our expose to toxic chemicals, electromagnetic radiation, * and other environmental contaminants.


     “According to the CDC, 94 percent of death certificates for COVID-19 victims in the US list a number of comorbidities or underlying health co-factors in their deaths, including  diabetes, obesity, heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease, dementia, and hypertension.”(p.10)


NOTE (p.166):

*(Visit the audio essay, “The Real Danger of Electronic Devices and EMFs,” with Joseph Mercola, September 24, 2017: https://play.acast.com/s/bulletproofradio/the-real-dangers-of-electronic-devices-and-emfs-dr-joseph-mercola-424.) (audio, 1:13:46)


. . .

      “The reason so many people are dying from or with COVID-19 and other preventable chronic diseases listed on their death certificates is that the US has one of the unhealthiest populations in the industrialized world.


     “The ‘cure’ for chronic disease and premature death, the most important preventive step to fight off invading viruses, is organic and regenerative food, complemented by appropriate nutritional supplements, herbs, and natural health remedies.


. . .

     “We need to avoid subsidizing junk food and direct those funds to healthy organic food for everyone, young and old, rich and poor. And we need a fundamental change in medical priorities, from just treating chronic disease with pharmaceutical drugs to preventing chronic disease with healthy ‘food as medicine’ as well as other natural health promoters such as medicinal herbs, vitamins, and nutritional supplements. This is how we can defeat COVID-19 and the epidemic of obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and other chronic diseases.


     “We also need to identify and bring to justice the criminal perpetrators of COVID-19 and ban biological warfare experiments, such as those weaponizing viruses, forever.


     “But at the same time, we must educate the public that ‘preexisting’ business-as-usual practices and policies (bad food, air and environmental pollution, pesticides, and contaminated vaccines) are the real deadly drivers of this pandemic and, along with it, the lockdowns and meltdown of the global economy.”


. . .

     “Together we can move beyond fear and doom and gloom. As renowned Indian activist Vandana Shiva explained in a recent interview, ‘We have to resist fear and we have to resist hate . . . we have to absolutely not become victims of fearmongering . . . we don’t have the luxury to be hopeless. . . . To be alive today means hope is something you must cultivate on a daily basis. Cultivating hope is cultivating resistance.’


     “Together as a local-to-global community, we can share and implement the positive solutions to our deteriorating public health and the disease of nations. These positive solutions already exist – healthy, organic, and regenerative food, farming, and land use; renewable energy and a clean environment; natural and integrative health practices; peace, justice, and participatory democracy. 


     “But to step through the portal of pandemic and fear, w must stop obsessing and arguing over our secondary differences, and focus instead on what we all support: healing and regenerating the body politic and planetary health.


     “As fellow human beings on a planet in crisis, we must avoid the trap of magnifying our differences, of treating one another as enemies. As Robert Kennedy, Jr., reminds us: ‘The enemy is Big Tech, Big Data, Big Oil, Big Parma, the medical cartel, the government totalitarian elements that are trying to oppress us, that are trying to rob us of our liberties, of our democracy, of our freedom of thought, of our freedom of expression, of our freedom of assembly and all of the freedoms that give dignity to humanity.


     “Let’s now look together at what really happened and what’s continuing to really happen with COVID-19: its origins, nature, virulence, threats, prevention, and treatment. And let’s try to strategize how we can defeat the current attempt at a coup d’état by the global elite and the digital dictators and build a new future that is healthy, regenerative, just, participatory, and democratic.(pp.12-13)




Chapter 2: Lab Leak or Natural Origin? (by Ronnie Cummins)...... 14


David A. Relman, a Stanford University microbiologist, writes in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, “the ‘origin story’ is missing many key details,” including a recent detailed evolutionary history of the virus, identity of its moist recent ancestors and surprisingly, the place, time, and mechanism of transmission of the first human infection.”

-Editorial Board of the Washington Post, November 14, 2020



     “For almost 30 years a growing number of scientists and activists, including the author of his book, have tried to warn the world about the inherent dangers of ‘playing God,’ meaning genetically engineering  DNA, the building blocks of life, and now messenger RNA (in the new experimental COVID vaccines, for example).


     “A big part of the reason why playing God is so dangerous is that these aims are pursued with little or no government regulation or consideration for the potential dangers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to human health and the environment.


     “As a result of our educational efforts, many, if not most, consumers around n the world have become wary of genetically engineered foods and crops, as well as the toxic chemicals such as Bayer/Monsanto’s glyphosate/Roundup pesticide that always accompany these GMOs. Unfortunately, most people have not heard much about the other branch of genetic engineering and gene editing – the secretive and shadowy world of bioweapons, biosafety, and biomedical research.


     “In this high-tech world of biotechnocracy, thousands of global scientists and researches, funded by Big Parma and the military-industrial complex, are genetically engineering viruses, bacteria, and microorganisms to make them more infective, virulent, and dangerous.


     “The biotechnocracy hides behind the excuse that these are not bioweapons; which are supposed to be banned by an international Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention, but rather are biomedical or biosafety experiments designed to help humankind develop new drugs or vaccines to fight off epidemics and disease.


     “Unfortunately, after 30 years of this so-called biosafety research, there have been hundreds of documented leaks, thefts, accidents, and even deliberate releases (such as the 2001 anthrax attacks in the US) every year. This doesn’t even include unreported incidents involving weaponized viruses and bacteria. But absolutory no new effective vaccines or drugs have come out of this dangerous gain-of-function research.


     “While gain of function may sound like a positive thing, it actually refers to the act of weaponizing viruses, often through genetic manipulation. Corona-viruses like SARS typically have a narrow host range, infecting one or just a few species, such as bats. However, using targeted RNA recombination, gene engineers can manipulate viruses such as COVIC-19 for ‘gain of function’ to enable them to infect outer species (human cells), interfere with immune system response, and readily spread though the air.


The Official Story is Crumbling.

     “The official story, which claims that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is natural as opposed to lab-engineered, is slowly but surely crumbling. A growing number of independent scientists and investigators are exposing the factual errors and outright lies of the establishment narrative by analyzing a growing body of evidence and publishing their findings, in spite of widespread censorship by scientific journals, the mass media, and the internet giants.


     “Among the international critics publically deconstructing the official story are hundreds of respected scientists and researches ….


     “Upholding the official story and opposing these critics, often denouncing them s ‘conspiracy theorists,’ the Chinese government, the US government, Big Pharma, Silicon Valley, and the global biomedical/biodefense elite argue that the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, a distant relative of the virulent but far less infectious SARS-CoV virus that infected 8,000 people in 2002-2004 and then disappeared, arose naturally from a wild bat.


     “The wild bat virus then somehow evolved, recombining its genes with another wild animal (a type of anteater called a pangolin), making it more infectious and virulent. Following this miraculous recombination event, SARS-CoV-2 then mutated again, gaining the ability to infect humans, causing a global pandemic, while leaving no biological, genomic, or epidemiological traces of its evolutionary history in its wake.


     “If there is indeed a natural explanation for the origins of COVID-19, all that the Chinese (and the US) government and the research scientists involved have to do is to come forward and provide us with the evidence.


     “This evidence, as Dr. David Relman points out in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, would need to provide laboratory samples an d scientific data showing the identity of SARS-CoV-2’s most recent ancestors, as well as ‘the place, time, and mechanism of transmission of the first human infection.’


     “But don’t hold your breath waiting for this to happen, since no one wants to take the blame, and pay the liability, for the most destructive lab accident or lab release in human history.


     “The ‘natural origins’ story has been regurgitated so many times by the mass media, the internet giants, the science and medical establishment, and government authorities that it’s no wonder the majority of ordinary people remain confused, misinformed, and fearful.


     “Anyone daring to challenge the official narrative, pointing to the preponderance of evidence that SARS-CoiV-2 appears to be a synthetic construct that was genetically engineered in a biomedical/bioweapons laboratory in Wuhan, China, and released, either accidentally (most probably) or deliberately, is berated and dismissed as a ‘conspiracy theorist’ and then typically summarily censored and/or banned on their social media platforms.


     “As the official narrative goes, SARS-CoV-2 arose suddenly, without warning, like a plague, almost like an act of God, allegedly originating and spreading from Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, a ‘wet market’ in Wuhan where exotic live animals such as bats and pangolins were supposedly sold, killed, and eaten.


     “Needles to say, the lurid image of a Chinese market vendor and their customers at the Wuhan Seafood Market killing a bat, eating it, and then contracting a dreadful disease was scary and repulsive, like something out of a horror movie. It also smacks of racism, as it plays on stereotypes of Asian people eating foods that are foreign – and therefore repellent – to Western palates.


     “Most of the world media, as well as a group of elite scientists who experiment on bats and viruses, repeated the Chinese government’s ‘bat-in-the-wet-market story’ ad nauseam. Unsurprisingly, a global cry rose up to ban wet markets and bush meat.


The Great Cover-Up.

In order to conceal their scientific malpractice and criminal negligence and protect their ‘right’ to carry out dangerous, unregulated research in violation of a global treaty banning bioweapons research, and to safeguard billions of dollars in annual Big Parma and GMO industry profits, Chinese and US officials, Big Parma, Facebook, Google, and an arrogant and unscrupulous network of global scientists have been frantically trying to cover up the lab origins of the COVFID-19 pandemic.


     “From the beginning, Chinese government officials have lied and tried to conceal the facts surrounding COVID-19, aided and abetted in many cases by the World Health Organization (of which China and Bill Gates are major funders – something we’ll cover more in chapter 3), and an indentured network of gene engineers and virologists from the US and other countries who study and weaponize viruses and bacteria under the guise of biomedicine or vaccine research.


     “The first stage of the cover-p involved trying to conceal or delay admitting that a new SARS-like epidemic had emerged in Wuhan, and that, unlike the first SARS outbreak of 2002-2004 in China, this one was highly transmissible. Although the world media dutifully repeated the later-discredited explanation that COVID-19 came from a wet market in Wuhan, a number of news  organizations did begin to investigate and expose some of the early duplicity, stalling, and lies of the Chinese government.(pp.14-17)


. . .


Covid-19: Planned or Simply Predicted and Exploited?

     “Dr. Anthony Fauci himself said: ‘And if there’s one message that I want to leave without today based on my experience . . . [it] is that there is no question that there will be a challenge to the coming [Trump] administration in the arena of infectious diseases . . . but also there will be a surprise outbreak. . . .  The thing we’re extraordinarily confident about is that we’re going to see this in the next few years.


     “We are looking at what is possibly the greatest crime or act of criminal negligence and cover-up in modern times. In a criminal trial, if a suspect (the Chinese government), or a group of suspects (the Chinese and the American governments and their scientists), act like they are guilty, concealing or destroying evidence, intimidating witnesses, attacking their critics a ‘conspiracy theorists,’ and constantly changing their story or their alibi, then they probably are guilty, or else they are trying to cover up for someone else.


     “If someone, possibly an accomplice or a collaborator of these perpetrators , benefits economically or politically or in terms of increased power and control from a crime or a disaster or from covering up the real origins of this crime or disazster, we need to look at them and their statements or testimony very carefully.


     “If someone, or in this case a group of very wealthy and powerful people (including Bill Gates, the World Health Organization, and the World Economic Forum), uncannily predicts in great detail that a pandemic like COVIS-19 is about to emerge (which they did in a  high-level exercise known as Event 201), and then it happens;, we need to sit up and take notice. Especially when this same global elite then proceeds to manipulate the disaster to their advantage, carefully controlling and manipulating the narrative and rolling out ambitious plans for what amounts to a New World Order with technocratic and totalitarian control, known as The Great Reset. (We will look at Event 201 and the Great Reset in detail in thye next chapter.)


The Verdict.

     “There is a growing body of evidence, forensic and circumstantial, telling us we should be skeptical of the official story of the origins of COVID-19, put out and defended by the Chinese and US governments, Big Pharma, the scientific establishment, Bit Tech, the World Economic Forum, the World Health Organization, Bill Gates, and the military-industrial complex, among others.


     “Weighing the scientific data and the growing preponderance of circumstantial evidence (suspects, behavior, money, motives, rewards, beneficiaries, social control, history of accidents and releases, anticipation or prediction), we inevitably reach the conclusion that SARS-CoV-2emerged from a lab, rather than naturally, either because of an accident (which seems more likely) or because it was deliberately released. But we need to know what lab, what scientists, what virus, and what viral constructs leaked out.


     “We need a global public inquiry led by independent scientists, lawyers, and investigators to gather the evidence on what really happened with COVIS-19. This should be followed by an international biowarfare crimes tribunal along the lines of the post-World War II Nuremberg trials, so that we can being the perpetrators of this pandemic to justice and prevent this type of disaster from ever happening again.


     “Once we have identified the COVID-19 perpetrators and their accomplices, and exposed them, along with those who have funded, aided, and abetted them, the global grassroots must revisit the Biological Weapons Convention. We must move to strengthen the prohibitions and close all the loopholes in the global treaty banning chemical and biological weapons, including all weaponization of viruses, bacteria, and microorganisms.


     “Part of this amended treaty must include putting an end to all bioweapons research, denying militarists and genetic engineers the loophole of calling bioweazpons research ‘biomedical’ or ‘biosafety’ research, and calling for mandatory inspections (just as are now required for nuclear weapons) whenever and wherever violations of the international treaty are suspected.


     “As bioweapons expert Lynn Klotz has pointed out:


‘After its enactment in 1975, one criticism of the major international treaty banning biological weapons, the Biological Weapons Convention, was that it had no provisions to monitor whether countries were complying with it. Being, as it was, the middle of the Cold War, it was unlikely that the Soviet Union would allow international inspectors to visit its biodefense facilities. . . .

     ‘After the Soviet Union collapsed, countries sought to address this perceived weakness . . . by [providing] procedures for randomly selected site visits and a rapid means to investigate weapons developed, stockpiling, and use. But supporters of this proposal had their hopes dashed in 2001 when the United States pulled out of a UN ad hoc group tasked with drafting the protocol, meaning the proposed provisions never were enacted into international law.


     “It’s time to shut down every dual-use biowar/biosafety lab in the world and implement a true global ban on weapons of mass destruction, including all chemical and biological weapons and experimentation.(pp.30-32)

The 21 + items below provide critical views of American-initiated corporate policies - both foreign and domestic – discussed in the Anglophone social media, views that will offer alternative explanations for the groundswell of discontent now felt across the world, challenging the legitimacy of corporate capitalist control over the social system of inequality and injustice that now prevails and represents an increasing threat to our very existence.


This, we must conclude, is what the advanced stage of capitalism sauvage looks like, and it’s not pretty!

ARPA-H, Intelligence Community within NIH:

IC infiltration into the health research bureaucracy continues


by Robert W Malone MD, MS

I really did not begin to understand the Washington DC/Bethesda- based National Institutes of Health (NIH) healthcare bureaucracy until my research laboratory was recruited and relocated from the University of California, Davis to the University of Maryland, Baltimore School of Medicine in 1997. Before then, I had a vague notion that the NIH intramural (Bethesda/Rockville- based research campus) and extramural (mostly Rockville administrative campus) infrastructure was a sort of research paradise, where all the really important government funded biomedical research work was done. For the lucky few who were good enough, the elite of the elite, they were able to work unencumbered by the daily grind of the endless begging-for-dollars grant and contract writing (and associated funding politics) which has come to dominate the lives of most academic biomedical researchers.

We will turn to the wider picture in a moment. But before that, let us consider developments in Israel, as its “historic,” year-old government – which included for the very first time a party representing a section of Israel’s minority of Palestinian citizens – teeters on the brink of collapse.

Crisis struck, as everyone knew it would sooner or later, because the Israeli parliament had to vote on a major issue relating to the occupation: renewing a temporary law that for decades has regularly extended Israel’s legal system outside its territory, applying it to Jewish settlers living on stolen Palestinian land in the West Bank.

That law lies at the heart of an Israeli political system that the world’s leading human rights groups, both in Israel and abroad, now belatedly admit has always constituted apartheid. The law ensures that Jewish settlers living in the West Bank in violation of international law receive rights different from, and far superior to, those of the Palestinians that are ruled over by Israel’s occupying military authorities.

Chris Hedges January 6 hearings


by Chris Hedges

The Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol, whose first of six televised hearings began last Thursday, is spectacle replacing politics. There is nothing substantially new in the accusations. The committee lacks prosecutorial power. No charges have been filed by Attorney General Merrick Garland against former President Donald Trump and none are expected. The choreographed hearings, like the two impeachment trials of Trump, will have no effect on Trump voters, other than to make them feel persecuted, especially with more than 860 people already charged (including 306 guilty pleas) for their role in storming the Capitol. The committee echoes back to Trump opponents what they already believe. It is designed to present inaction as action and substitute role-playing for politics. It perpetuates, as Guy Debord writes, our “empire of modern passivity.”

Fraud Committed by Pfizer and the FDA in the Continued Distribution of COVID-19 Vaccine. Letter Putting Colleges on Notice


by No College Mandates

No College Mandates has launched a major letter campaign to put colleges on notice that continued Covid-19 vaccination mandates put their students, their reputations, and potentially their endowments at risk. The purpose of the letter is to make these policy makers aware of new information they likely did not know existed and to prompt them to further investigate.

To date, more than 60 college presidents have received this letter via certified mail. Across those 60 colleges, approximately 1400 individuals were copied. Many more college letters are in process. By the time we are finished, thousands of college administrators and trustees will be notified.

No College Mandates is so proud to have the following organizations as signatories on our letter: Health Freedom Defense Fund, The Mendenhall Law Group, Health Freedom Counsel, and The Unity Project.

The letter is below. . . . .


If you are interested in working on this effort, email us at info@nocollegemandates.com. We’ll set you up to fight this fight with us and make change.

Origins and Trajectories of the COVID Phenomenon


by Robert Malone


The philosophical foundation of the PANDA group, one of the leading international teams.

A group of multi-disciplinary professionals established a leading international consortium named PANDA during April of 2020. This group was formed in response to the global political and public health reaction to COVID—and lockdowns in particular—which they saw as overwrought and damaging to the point of causing a great tear in the fabric of society. As a politically and economically independent organization, PANDA continues to seek to develop science-based explanations relating to the COVID crisis, and to test these hypotheses against international data. The goal of the organization is to use these analyses to guide and inform policy recommendations for governments and other institutions. Since formation, PANDA has stood for open science and rational debate, for replacing flawed science with good science and for retrieving liberty and prosperity from the clutches of a dystopian “new normal”.  The group is structured into three different operational teams.

Pouring Poison and Planting Seeds of Dependency



by Colin Todhunter

(audio version, 16:57)

Do you remember the iconic Union Carbide image from the 1950s or early 1960s? The one with the giant hand coming from the sky, pouring pesticides onto Indian soil.

The blurb below the image includes the following:

Science helps build a new India – India has developed bold new plans to build its economy and bring the promise of a bright future to its more than 400 million people. But India needs the technical knowledge of the western world. For example working with Indian engineers and technicians, Union Carbide recently made available its fast scientific resource to help build a chemicals and plastics plant near Bombay. Throughout the free world, Union Carbide has been actively engaged in building plants for the manufacture of chemicals, plastics, carbons, gases and metals.”

In the bottom corner is the Union Carbide logo and the statement ‘A HAND IN THINGS TO COME’.

This ‘hand of god’ image has become infamous. Union Carbide’s ‘hand in things to come’ includes the gas leak at its pesticides plant in Bhopal in 1984. It resulted in around 560,000 injured (respiratory problems, eye irritation, etc), 4,000 severely disabled and 20,000 dead.

As for the chemical-intensive agriculture it promoted, we can now see the impacts: degraded soils, polluted water, illness, farmer debt and suicides (by drinking pesticides!), nutrient-dense crops/varieties being side-lined, a narrower range of crops, no increase in food production per capita (in India at least), the corporate commodification of knowledge and seeds, the erosion of farmers’ environmental learning, the undermining of traditional knowledge systems and farmers’ dependency on corporations.

Whether it involves the type of ecological devastation activist-farmer Bhaskar Save

 outlined for policy makers in his 2006 open letter or the social upheaval documented by Vandana Shiva
 in the book The Violence of the Green Revolution, the consequences have been far-reaching.

And yet – whether it involves new genetic engineering techniques or more pesticides –  there is a relentless drive by the agritech conglomerates to further entrench their model of agriculture by destroying traditional farming practices with the aim of placing more farmers on corporate seed and chemical treadmills.

These corporations have been pushing for the European Commission to remove any labelling and safety checks for new genomic techniques. The European Court of Justice ruled in 2018 that organisms obtained with new genetic modification techniques must be regulated under the EU’s existing GMO laws. However, there has been intense lobbying from the agriculture biotech industry to weaken the legislation, aided financially by the Gates Foundation.

Since 2018, top agribusiness and biotech corporations have spent almost €37 million lobbying the European Union. They have had 182 meetings with European Commissioners, their cabinets and director generals. More than one meeting a week.

In recent weeks, Syngenta (a subsidiary of ChemChina) CEO Erik Fyrwald has come to the fore to cynically lobby for these techniques.

I’m the first to report this breaking national news:
This morning I listened to the meeting of the National Vaccine Advisory Committee. Melinda Wharton gave her update from CDC... and they have scheduled a special two day meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for TOMORROW (Friday, June 17) and Saturday (June 18). The agenda is here:
Friday they will discuss safety, immunogenicity, and efficacy of Moderna in kids 6 months through 5 years of age AND Pfizer in kids 6 months through 4 years of age. Saturday they will vote. The entire process is set up to rubber stamp the VRBPAC meetings from yesterday.
When White House “Covid-19 Czar” Ashish Jha went on TV earlier in the week and said that these shots would be available by June 19, he surely knew that these meetings were in the works. But they kept them secret from the public until Melinda Wharton let the cat out of the bag this morning.
Apparently, the CDC is going to hold off on debating Moderna in kids 6 to 17 years old until next week (they have another meeting scheduled for June 22 and 23). The CDC has decided to target the littlest kids first.
What is to be done.
Let’s light ‘em up right now. Below are talking points and contact info for the people who will be involved with the ACIP meeting tomorrow and Saturday.
Talking Points
Feel free to compose your own message or share your story with the federal officials listed below. Alternatively you can copy and paste these talking points into your message. Phone calls and faxes are good too.
Subject line: please REJECT the Moderna and Pfizer EUA applications to inject mRNA into little kids
1. There is no Covid emergency for children under five years old.
Children have a 99.997% recovery rate and a body of medical literature indicates that almost zero healthy children under five years old have died from Covid.
• A large study conducted in Germany showed zero deaths for children under 5 and a case fatality rate of three out of a million in children without comorbidities.
•A Johns Hopkins study monitoring 48,000 children diagnosed with Covid showed a zero mortality rate in children under 18 without comorbidities.
•A study in Nature demonstrated that children under 18 with no comorbidities have virtually no risk of death.
2. The data in connection with the Moderna and Pfizer EUA applications in kids is abysmal
• The Pfizer clinical trial in kids 6 months to four years old failed in December 2021 and failed again in February 2022. Adding a third dose did not solve the underlying problems with this shot in this age group.
• Against the Omicron variant, after one month, the Pfizer shot was only 12% effective in kids 5 to 11, after 6 weeks vaccine effectiveness was a shocking MINUS 41% (vaccinated kids were significantly more likely to catch Covid than the unvaccinated). Recommending a vaccine with negative efficacy is insanity.
• Finland, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway have all suspended the use of the Moderna shot in young people because it leads to myocarditis. The FDA risk benefit assessment cited 26 studies showing that mRNA shots in general, and Moderna in particular, increase the risk of myocarditis.
3. The harms from mRNA shots in children are catastrophic.
There are now 49,283 VAERS reports of adverse events in children following Covid shots including 114 reports of death, 457 reports of permanent disability, and 1,326 reports of myocarditis. These reports likely understate harms by a factor of 41 to 100.
You have a professional and moral obligation to reject the Moderna and Pfizer EUA applications to inject mRNA into little kids.

Please reach out and find a way to awaken the moral core of these 26 people:

(I’m not even sure what to say about this one. She lost a daughter to whooping cough at 12 weeks. I take her claim at face value and I grieve for her loss. But ACIP has no voting members who are parents of vaccine injured kids and that’s a double standard that is not fair. Perhaps just pray for this person.)

For most of the past year, Simone Gold, a prominent Covid misinformation spreader who is both an emergency room doctor and Stanford-educated lawyer, has insisted that she is the victim of a political prosecution after she was arrested and indicted for helping storm the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. Her organization, America’s Frontline Doctors, has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from her supporters who believe her claims that the government is just trying to silence her views on mask mandates, vaccines, and other pandemic responses. 

3."Our free press" wants us NOT to think that "SADS" has anything to do with "vaccination" by Mark Crispin Miller (17 Jun 2022 13:22 EDT)

​Here's the local CBS affiliate in Columbus, Ohio, straining to "persuade" its viewers (if any) not to think that "SADS" is just another word for "vaccine death."

No, Sudden Adult Death Syndrome is not linked to vaccinesSudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) is a term used to describe unexpected cardiac death in young adults. It’s not linked to vaccines, like some on social media claim.https://www.10tv.com/article/news/verify/health-verify/sudden-adult-death-syndrome-not-linked-to-vaccines/536-7f91945f-a22a-4991-a291-ae7ed32e42c4

4.If doctors were as good at healing as they are at gaslighting, the world would be a vastly better place by Mark Crispin Miller (17 Jun 2022 14:10 EDT)

A Midwestern Doctor
May 2


Years ago, I saw a comment on a forum that stated “Allopathic medicine gaslights you to death.”  Since then, one of my missions has been to bring that meme to the public consciousness.

Gaslighting refers to the phenomena first described in a 1944 movie, of having an abusive partner who continually alters things in your environment, but then tells you (or says other people are saying) what you are observing is not happening, so you begin to doubt your whole reality.  This is an effective method for making people go insane and I’ve seen multiple cases of essentially sociopathic romantic partners gaslight a friend or patient. 
The term has become well known in a relationship context that over the last few years and is now used frequently enough that I often see it flung around where I don’t really feel it is merited (as certain people always like to pick the most offensive label and slap it onto everyone they don’t like).  However, medical gaslighting is still a relatively unknown, and in my opinion, just as important phenomenon.

Typically, when people have a disabling reaction to a pharmaceutical or a medical procedure (formally known as iatrogenesis), they are either told the reaction is not occurring (ie. they don’t have fatigue and they are just being lazy or trying to get disability), or that the injury was not due to the medication and rather due to psychiatric problems the person has. 

Unless you or someone you are very close to has gone through this, it’s nearly impossible to even begin to describe how miserable of an experience this is for the person who experiences it.  Every single authority figure tells you to doubt your own reality and submit to other toxic pharmaceuticals, and most of your family members and friends side with the authority figure’s interpretation of reality.  At the same time, you are falling apart and are in the most vulnerable and confused state possible which makes it very difficult to maintain your own reality. 
When I review these cases, I find one of the greatest issues is neurologic damage that subsequently creates psychiatric symptoms is a very common side effect from the more toxic pharmaceuticals.  This creates a cycle of circular logic where the neurologic damage is not recognized, and your psychiatric symptoms are cited as the cause of your entire illness (which is further worsened by the fact being gaslighted is a traumatic experience which will often make one appear “overly emotional”).  The fact that neurologic damage can frequently cause psychiatric symptoms is fundamental to my medical practice but is not recognized by much of the medical fields, which views these two classifications as entirely separate entities.
Medical gaslighting is not new either; people pushing poisons will always want to blame the victims so they can stay in business.  The earliest example I have come across was in the Age of Autism.  Mercury was one of the most commonly used, and most toxic medications from the early centuries of allopathic medicine.  A common side effect was severe neuropsychiatric disturbances, which disproportionately affected women. 
Because the medical profession did not want to give up mercury, they made excuse after excuse to keep it in use.  Freud arrived on the scene and (poorly) argued the debilitating illnesses being observed were due to unresolved sexual issues the patients had (ie. a daughter’s towards her father she was caring for).  As this gave the mercury pushers a get out of jail card, the medical field ate Freud’s argument up and it became medical dogma.

Since this strategy is effective, there are many other historical examples.  The movie Radium Girls focuses on women working at a factory who painted radioactive paint onto watches and were instructed to repeatedly lick the brushes.  This created numerous issues in the mouth, cancers and ultimately the deaths of many worker.  The company responded by insisting the paint was safe and having a company doctor diagnose each injured worker with syphilis.  This effectively silenced these women since promiscuity was viewed in a very negative light by the culture of the time, leading the workers to hesitate to discuss their new illness.

Similarly, after hundreds of thousands of servicemen became severely injured by the anthrax vaccine, the military took the strategy of blaming all illness on “stress” from the Gulf War.  The military funded large number of studies to provide this correlation, pressured the VA to only focus on PTSD as a potential cause and relentlessly pushed this message to the media.  This explanation was recognized by many to be absurd since many of the Gulf War Syndrome veterans had previously been in much worse wars with no issues (the Gulf War was a quick massacre of the Iraqis primarily done from afar), and many individuals with Gulf War Syndrome never even deployed to the Middle East.
This form of gaslighting has proven itself in the public relations field and is hence pushed by the manufacturers of many of the more toxic pharmaceutical drugs on the market.  Pharmaceutical victims in turn periodically forward me literature they uncover of (industry funded) medical journals discussing psychiatric explanations for iatrogenic injuries. 

Prior to the COVID-19 vaccines, while this issue was common enough that I frequently found myself shouting into the wind about it, it was rare enough that it could be easily swept under the rug and ignored.  Since the COVID-19 vaccines have entered the market, it has become so common that on a daily basis I now hear stories (including from my readers) of significant iatrogenic complication from this vaccination followed by widespread gaslighting by friends, family and health care workers.

These stories are typically greeted with the shock and awe that something like this could possibly be happening in America.  This I argue, is because until recently, the experiences of patients with iatrogenic injuries were relatively unknown and has only entered popular knowledge because it’s become so common media censorship can’t hide it anymore (normally pharmaceutical companies never allow stories critical of their products to make it to air). 
My sincere hope is that this newfound public awareness of medical gaslighting will also bring awareness to the dozens of other medications that frequently injure patients who made the mistake of trusting the doctors who prescribed it to them (due to reduced time constraints for doctors, many medical visits just result in the prescribing of a medication to a patient).

5.Airstrip One will extradite Assange (for what?) by Mark Crispin Miller (17 Jun 2022 14:14 EDT)

The UK's Decision to Extradite Assange Shows Why The US/UK's Freedom Lectures Are a FarceThe Assange persecution is the greatest threat to Western press freedoms in years. It is also a shining monument to the fraud of American and British self-depictions.Jun 17

The eleven-year persecution of Julian Assange was extended and escalated on Friday morning. The British Home Secretary, Priti Patel, approved the U.S.'s extradition request to send Julian Assange to Virginia to stand trial on eighteen felony charges under the 1917 Espionage Act and other statutes in connection with the 2010 publication by WikiLeaks of thousands of documents showing widespread corruption, deceit, and war crimes by American and British authorities along with their close dictatorial allies in the Middle East.
This decision is unsurprising — it has been obvious for years that the U.S. and UK are determined to destroy Assange as punishment for his journalism exposing their crimes — yet it nonetheless further highlights the utter sham of American and British sermons about freedom, democracy and a free press. Those performative self-glorifying spectacles are constantly deployed to justify these two countries’ interference in and attacks on other nations, and to allow their citizens to feel a sense of superiority about the nature of their governments. After all, if the U.S. and UK stand for freedom and against tyranny, who could possibly oppose their wars and interventions in the name of advancing such lofty goals and noble values?
Having reported on the Assange case for years, on countless occasions I've laid out the detailed background that led Assange and the U.S. to this point. There is thus no need to recount all of that again; those interested can read the granular trajectory of this persecution here or here. Suffice to say, Assange — without having been convicted of any crime other than bail jumping, for which he long ago served out his fifty-week sentence — has been in effective imprisonment for more than a decade.
In 2012, Ecuador granted Assange legal asylum from political persecution. It did so after the Swedish government refused to pledge that it would not exploit the WikiLeaks founder's travel to Sweden to answer sex assault accusations as a pretext to turn him over to the U.S. Fearing what of course ended up happening — that the U.S. was determined to do everything possible to drag Assange back to U.S. soil despite his not being a U.S. citizen and never having spent more than a few days on U.S. soil, and intending to pressure their long-time-submissive Swedish allies to turn him over once he was on Swedish soil — the government of Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa concluded Assange's core civic rights were being denied and thus gave him refuge in the tiny Ecuadorian Embassy in London: the classic reason political asylum exists.
When Trump officials led by CIA Director Mike Pompeo bullied Correa's meek successor, ex-President Lenin Moreno, to withdraw that asylum in 2019, the London Police entered the embassy, arrested Assange, and put him in the high-security Belmarsh prison (which the BBC in 2004 dubbed “the British Guantanamo”), where he has remained ever since.
After the lowest-level British court in early 2021 rejected the U.S. extradition request on the ground that Assange's physical and mental health could not endure the U.S. prison system, Assange has lost every subsequent appeal. Last year, he was permitted to marry his long-time girlfriend, the British human rights lawyer Stella Morris Assange, who is also the mother of their two young children. An extremely unusual unanimity among press freedom and civil liberties groups was formed in early 2021 to urge the Biden administration to cease its prosecution of Assange, but Biden officials — despite spending the Trump years masquerading as press freedom advocates — ignored them (an interview conducted last week with Stella Assange by my husband, the Brazilian Congressman David Miranda, on Brazil's Press Freedom Day, regarding the latest developments and toll this has taken on the Assange family, can be seen here).
The Home Secretary's decision this morning — characteristically subservient and obedient of the British when it comes to the demands of the U.S. — does not mean that Assange's presence on U.S. soil is imminent. Under British law, Assange has the right to pursue a series of appeals contesting the Home Secretary's decision, and will likely do so. Given that the British judiciary has more or less announced in advance their determination to follow the orders of their American masters, it is difficult to see how these further proceedings will have any effect other than to delay the inevitable.
But putting oneself in Assange's position, it is easy to see why he is so eager to avoid extradition to the U.S. for as long as possible. The Espionage Act of 1917 is a nasty and repressive piece of legislation. It was designed by Woodrow Wilson and his band of authoritarian progressives to criminalize dissent against Wilson's decision to involve the U.S. in World War I. It was used primarily to imprison anti-war leftists such as Eugene Debs, as well as anti-war religious leaders such as Joseph Franklin Rutherford for the crime of publishing a book condemning Wilson's foreign policy.
One of the most insidious despotic innovations of the Obama administration was to repurpose and revitalize the Wilson-era Espionage Act as an all-purpose weapon to punish whistleblowers who denounced Obama's policies. The Obama Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder prosecuted more whistleblowers under the Espionage Act of 1917 than all previous administrations combined — in fact, three times as many as all prior presidents combined. One whistleblower charged by Obama officials under that law is NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, who in 2013 revealed mass domestic spying of precisely the kind that Obama's Director of National Intelligence James Clapper (now of CNN) falsely denied conducting when testifying to the Senate, which led to legislative curbs enacted by the U.S. Congress, and which courts have ruled unconstitutional and illegal.
What makes this law so insidious is that, by design, it is almost impossible for the government to lose. As I detailed in a Washington Post op-ed when the indictment was first revealed — arguing why it poses the greatest threat to press freedoms in the West in years — this 1917 law is written as a “strict liability” statute, meaning that the defendant is not only guilty as soon as there is proof that they disclosed classified information without authorization, but they are also barred from raising a "justification” defense — meaning they cannot argue to the jury of their peers that it was not only permissible but morally necessary to disclose that information because of the serious wrongdoing and criminality it revealed on the part of the nation's most powerful political officials. That 1917 law, in other words, is written to offer only show trials but not fair trials. No person in their right mind would willingly submit to prosecution and life imprisonment in the harshest American penitentiaries under an indictment brought under this fundamentally corrupted law.
Whatever else one might think of Assange, there is simply no question that he is one of the most consequential, pioneering, and accomplished journalists of his time. One could easily make the case that he occupies the top spot by himself. And that, of course, is precisely why he is in prison: because, just like free speech, “free press” guarantees in the U.S. and UK exist only on a piece of parchment and in theory. Citizens are free to do “journalism" as long as it does not disturb or anger or impede real power centers. Employees of The Washington Post and CNN are “free” to say what they want as long as what they are saying is approved and directed by the CIA or the content of their “reporting” advances the interests of the Pentagon's sprawling war machine.
Real journalists often face threats of prosecution, imprisonment or even murder, and sometimes even mean tweets. Much of the American corporate media class has ignored Assange’s persecution or even cheered it precisely because he shames them, serving as a vivid mirror to show them what real journalism is and how they are completely bereft of it. And the American and British governments have successfully exploited the petty jealousies and insecurities of their failed, vapid and pointless media servants to get away with imposing the single greatest threat to press freedom in the West without much protest at all.
Free speech and press freedoms do not exist in reality in the U.S. or the UK. They are merely rhetorical instruments to propagandize their domestic population and justify and ennoble the various wars and other forms of subversion they constantly wage in other countries in the name of upholding values they themselves do not support. The Julian Assange persecution is a great personal tragedy, a political travesty and a grave danger to basic civic freedoms. But it is also a bright and enduring monument to the fraud and deceit that lies at the heart of these two governments' depictions of who and what they are.
