What was World War One about? How did it start? Who won? And what did they win? Now, 100 years after those final shots rang out, these questions still puzzle historians and laymen alike. But as we shall see, this confusion is not a happenstance of history but the wool that has been pulled over our eyes to stop us from seeing what WWI really was.
Subject : Social Engineering: “collateral damage” and other fallacies of mistaking the map for the terrain.
April 18, 2020
Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,
Experiencing the serendipity at a library bookshelf is one of the deeper pleasures that historical research provided before the digital age. The current coronavirus “lockdown” has rekindled this pleasure of surprise, as I look for a book and discover another I had read years before, with memories of a different social context.
It has been more than a decade since I read books written by the Australian physicist Fritjof Capara, who spent a life time doing research in the field of theoretical high-energy physics and later began exploring the relationship between “modern physics” and Eastern mysticism. He recounts this intellectual journey in a very accessible book, The Tao of Physics (1975).
The spring and summer of 2011 was the period I began reading Capara’s works. (This is reflected in Ceimsa Bulletin N° 493 and 495.) Discovering a copy of his 1975 paperback on my dusty bookshelf was a surprise, like an unexpected meeting with an old friend. I immediately picked up the book and began reading it, along with the notes I’d written in the margins. It was a rediscovery, in the deepest sense of the word.
I found then, and again today, a most interesting discussion in this book’s fourth chapter, entitled “The New Physics”, which Capara introduces with a lucid comparison of the new theoretical science with ancient practices of mysticism.
According to the Eastern mystics, the directly mystical experience of reality is a momentous event which shakes the very foundations of one’s world view. D.T. Suzuki has called it ‘the most startling event that could ever happen in the realm of human consciousness … upsetting every form of standardized experience’, and he has illustrated the shocking character of this experience with the words of a Zen master who described it as ‘the bottom of a pail breaking through’.
Physicists, at the beginning of this century, felt much the same way when the foundations of their world view were shaken by the new experience of the atomic reality, and they described this experience in terms which were often very similar to those used by Suzuki’s Zen master. Thus Heisenberg wrote:
‘The violent reaction on the recent development of modern physics can only be understood when one realizes that here
the foundations of physics have started moving; and that this motion has caused the feeling that the ground would be
cut from science.’
Einstein experienced the same shock when he first came in contact with the new reality of atomic physics. He wrote in his autobiography:
‘All my attempts to adapt the theoretical foundation of physics to this (new type of) knowledge failed completely.
It was as if the ground had been pulled out from under one, with no firm foundation to be seen anywhere, upon which
one could have built.’
The discoveries of modern physics necessitated profound changes of concepts like space, time, matter, object, cause and effect, etc., and since these concepts are so basic to our way of experiencing the world it is not surprising that the physicists who were forced to change them felt something of a shock. Out of these changes emerged a new and radically different world view, still in the process of formation by current scientific research.
It seems, then, that Eastern mystics and Western physicists went through similar revolutionary experiences which led them to completely new ways of seeing the world. In the following two passages the European physicist Niels Bohr and the Indian mystic Sri Aurobindo both express the depth and the radical character of this experience.
‘The great extension of our experience in recent years has brought to light the insufficiency of our simple mechanical conceptions and, as a consequence, has shaken the foundation on which the customary interpretation of observation was based.’
-Niels Bohr, 1934
‘All things in fact begin to change their nature and appearance; one’s whole experience of the world is radically different … There is a new vast and deep way of experiencing, seeing, knowing, contacting things.’
-Sri Aurobindo, 1958
This chapter will serve to sketch a preliminary picture to this new conception of the world against the contrasting background of classical physics; showing how the classical mechanistic world view had to be abandoned at the beginning of this century when quantum theory and relativity theory – the two basic theories of modern physics - forced us to adopt a much more subtle, holistic and ‘organic’ view of nature.(pp.54-56)
With this introduction, Capara then proceeds to briefly trace the intellectual history of scientific thought and the ‘revolution’ that was experienced at the turn of the 20th century.
The World view which was changed by the discoveries of modern physics had been based on Newton’s mechanical model of the universe. This model constituted the solid framework of classical physics. It was indeed a most formidable foundation supporting, like a mighty rock, all of science and providing a firm basis for natural philosophy for almost three centuries.
The stage of the Newtonian universe, on which all physical phenomena took place, was the three-dimensional space of classical Euclidean geometry. It was an absolute space, always at rest and unchangeable. In Newton’s own words, ‘Absolute space, in its own nature, without regard to anything external, remains always similar and immovable.’ All changes in the physical world were described in terms of a separate dimension, called time, which again was absolute, having no connection with the material world and flowing smoothly from the past through the present to the future. ‘Absolute, true, and mathematical time,’ said Newton, ‘of itself and by its own nature, flows uniformly, without regard to anything external.’
The elements of the Newtonian world which moved in this absolute space and absolute time were material particles. In the mathematical equations they were treated as ‘mass points’ and Newton saw them as small, solid, and indestructible objects out of which all matter was made. This model was quite similar to that of the Greek atomists. Both were based on the distinction between the full and the void, between matter and space, and in both models the particles remained always identical in their mass and shape. Matter was therefore always conserved and essentially passive. The important difference between the Democritean and Newtonian atomism is that the latter includes a precise description of the force acting between the material particles. This force is very simple, depending only on the masses and the mutual distances of the particles. It is the force of gravity, and it was seen by Newton as rigidly connected with the bodies it acted upon, and as acting instantaneously over a distance. Although this was strange hypothesis, it was not investigated further. The particles and the forces between them were seen as created by God and thus were not subject to further analysis. In his Opticks, Newton gives us a clear picture of how he imagined God’s creation of the material world:
‘It seems probable to me that God in the beginning formed matter in solid, massy, hard, impenetrable, movable particles,
of such sizes and figures, and with such other properties, and in such proportion to space, as most conduced to the end
for which he formed them; and that these primitive particles being solids, are incomparably harder than any porous bodies
compounded of them; even so very hard, as never to wear or break in pieces; no ordinary power being able to divide
what God himself made one in the first creation.’
All physical events are reduced, in Newtonian mechanics to the motion of material points in space, caused by their mutual attraction, i.e. by the force of gravity. In order to put the effect of this force on a mass point into a precise mathematical form, Newton had to invent completely new concepts and mathematical techniques, those of differential calculus. This was a tremendous intellectual achievement and has been praised by Einstein as ‘perhaps the greatest advance in thought that a singular individual was ever privileged to make.’
Newton’s equations of motion are the basis of classical mechanics. They were considered to be fixed laws according to which material points move, and were thus thought to account for all changes observed in the physical world. In the Newtonian view, God had created, in the beginning, the material particles, the forces between them, and the fundamental laws of motion. In this way, the whole universe was set in motion and it has continued to run ever since, like a machine, governed by immutable laws.
The mechanistic view of nature is thus closely related to a rigorous determinism. The giant cosmic machine was seen as being completely causal and determinate. All that happened had a definite cause and gave rise to a definite effect, and the future of any part of the system could – in principle – be predicted with absolute certainty if its state at any time was known in all details. This belief found its clearest expression in the famous words of the French mathematician Pierre Simon Laplace:
‘An intellect which at a given instant knew all the forces acting in nature, and the position of all things of which the world
consists – supposing the said intellect were vast enough to subject these data to analysis – would embrace in the same formula
the motions of the greatest bodies in the universe and those of the slightest atoms; nothing would be uncertain for it, and the future,
like the past, would be present to its eyes.’
The philosophical basis of this rigorous determinism was the fundamental division between the ‘I’ and the ‘world’ introduced by Descartes. As a consequence of this division, it was believed that the world could be described objectively, i.e. without ever mentioning the human observer, and such an objective description of nature became the ideal of all science.
The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries witnessed a tremendous success of Newtonian mechanics. Newton himself applied his theory to the movement of the planets and was able to explain the basic features of the solar system. His planetary model was greatly simplified, however, neglecting, for example, the gravitational influences of the planets on each other, and thus he found that there were certain irregularities which he could not explain. He resolved this problem by assuming that God was also present in the universe to correct these irregularities.
Laplace, the great mathematician, set himself the ambitious task of refining and perfecting Newton’s calculations in a book which should ‘offer a complete solution of the great mechanical problem presented by the solar system, and bring theory to coincide so closely with observation that empirical evaluations would no longer find a place in astronomical tables’. The result was a large work of five volumes, called Mécanique Céleste in which Laplace succeeded in explaining the motions of the planets, moons, and comets down to the smallest details, as well as the flow of the tides and other phenomena related to gravity. He showed that the Newtonian laws of motion assured the stability of the solar system and treated the universe as a perfectly self-regulating machine. When Laplace presented the first edition of his work to Napoleon – so the story goes – Napoleon remarked, ‘Monsieur Laplace, they tell me you have written this large book on the system of the universe, and have never even mentioned its Creator.’ To this Laplace replied bluntly, ‘I had no need for that hypothesis.’
Encouraged by the brilliant success of Newtonian mechanics in astronomy, physicists extended it to the continuous motion of fluids and to the vibrations of elastic bodies, and again it worked. Finally, even the theory of heat could be reduced to mechanics when it was realized that heat was the energy crated by a complicated ‘jiggling’ motion of the molecules. When the temperature of, say, water is increased the motion of the water molecules increases until they overcome the forces holding them together and fly apart. In this way, water turns into steam. On the other hand, when the thermal motion is slowed down by cooling the water, the molecules finally lock into a new, more rigid pattern which is ice. In a similar way, many other thermal phenomena can be understood quite well from a purely mechanistic point of view.
The enormous success of the mechanistic model made physicists of the early nineteenth century believe that the universe was indeed a huge mechanical system running according to the Newtonian laws of motion. These laws were seen as the basic laws of nature and Newton’s mechanics was considered to be the ultimate theory of natural phenomena. And yet, it was less than a hundred years later that a new physical reality was discovered which made the limitations of the Newtonian model apparent and showed that none of its features had absolute validity.
This realization did not come abruptly, but was initiated by developments that had already started in the nineteenth century and prepared the way for the scientific revolutions of our time. The first of these developments was the discovery and investigation of electric and magnetic phenomena which could not be described appropriately by the mechanistic model and involved a new type of force. The important step was made by Michael Faraday and Clerk F– the first, one of the greatest experimenters in the history of science; the second , a brilliant theorist. When Faraday produced an eclectic current in a coil of copper by moving a magnet near it, and thus converted the mechanical work of moving the magnet into eclectic energy, he brought science and technology to a turning point. His fundamental experiment gave birth, on the one hand, to the vast technology of electrical engineering; on the other hand, it formed the basis of his and Maxwell’s theoretical speculations which, eventually, resulted in a complete theory of electromagnetism. Faraday and Maxwell did not only study the effects of the electronic and magnetic forces; but made the forces themselves the primary object of their investigation. They replaced the concept of a force by that of a force field, and in doing so they were the first to go beyond Newtonian physics.
Instead of interpreting the interaction between a positive and a negative charge simply by saying that the two charges attract each other like two masses in Newtonian mechanics, Faraday and Maxwell found it more appropriate to say that each charge creates a ‘disturbance’, or a ‘condition’, in the space around it so that the other charge, when it is present, feels a force. This condition in space which has the potential of producing a force is called a field. It is created by a single charge and it exists whether or not another charge is brought in to feel its effect.
This was a most profound change in man’s conception of physical reality. In the Newtonian view, the forces were rigidly connected with the bodies they act upon. Now the force concept was replaced by the much subtler concept of a field which had its own reality and could be studied without any reference to material bodies. The culmination of this theory, called electrodynamics, was the realization that light is nothing but a rapidly alternating electromagnetic field travelling through space in the form of waves. Today we know that radio waves, light waves or X-rays, are all electromagnetic waves, oscillating electric and magnetic fields differing only in the frequency of their oscillation, and that visible light is only a tiny fraction of the electromagnetic spectrum.
In spite of these far-reaching changes, Newtonian mechanics at first held its position as the basis of all physics. Maxwell himself tried to explain his results in mechanical terms, interpreting the fields as states of mechanical stress in a very light space-filling medium, called ether, and the electromagnetic waves as elastic waves of this ether. This was only natural as waves are usually experienced as vibrations of something; water waves as vibrations of water, sound waves as vibrations of air. Maxwell, however, used several mechanical interpretations of his theory at the same time and apparently took none of them really seriously. He must have realized intuitively, even if he did not say so explicitly, that the fundamental entities in his theory were the ‘fields’ and not the mechanical models. It was Einstein who clearly recognized this fact fifty years later when he declared that no ether “existed and that the electromagnetic fields were physical entities in their own right which could travel through empty space and could not be explained mechanically.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, then, physicists had two successful theories which applied to different phenomena: Newton’s mechanics and Maxwell’s electrodynamics. Thus the Newtonian model had ceased to be the basis of all physics.(pp.56-62)
Fritzjor Capara goes on to describe “modern physics” and the turmoil these new discoveries caused in our thinking of the world.
The first three decades of our [20th] century changed the whole situation in physics radically. Two separate developments – that of relativity theory and of atomic physics – shattered all the principal concepts of the Newtonian world view: the notion of absolute space and time, the elementary solid particles, the strictly causal nature of physical phenomena, and the ideal of an objective description of nature. None of these concepts could be extended to the new domains into which physics was now penetrating.
At the beginning of modern physics stands the extraordinary intellectual feat of one man: Albert Einstein. In two articles, both published in 1905, Einstein initiated two revolutionary trends of thought. One was his special theory of relativity; the other was a new way of looking at electromagnetic radiation which was to become characteristic of quantum theory, the theory of atomic phenomena. The complete quantum theory was worked out twenty years later by a whole team of physicists. Relativity theory, however, was constructed in its complete form almost entirely by Einstein himself. Einstein’s scientific papers stand at the beginning of the twentieth century as imposing intellectual monuments – the pyramids of modern civilization.
Einstein strongly believed in nature’s inherent harmony and his deepest concern throughout his scientific life was to find a unified foundation of physics. He began to move towards this goal by constructing a common framework for electrodynamics and mechanics, the two separate theories of classical physics. This framework is known as the special theory of relativity. It unified and completed the structure of classical physics, but at the same time it involved drastic changes in the traditional concepts of space and time and undermined one of the foundations of the Newtonian world view.
According to relativity theory, space is not three-dimensional and time is not a separate entity. Both are intimately connected and form a four-dimensional continuum, ‘space-time’. In relativity theory, therefore, we can never talk about space without talking about time and vice versa. Furthermore, there is no universal flow of time as in the Newtonian model. Different observers will order events differently in time if they move with different velocities relative to the observed events. In such a case, two events which are seen as occurring simultaneously by one observer may occur in different temporal sequences for another observer. All measurements involving space and time thus lose their absolute significance. In relativity theory, the Newtonian concept of an absolute space as the stage of physical phenomena is abandoned and so is the concept of absolute time. Both space and time become merely elements of the language a particular observer uses for his description of the phenomena.
The concepts of space and time are so basic for the description of natural phenomena that their modification entails a modification of the whole framework that we use to describe nature. The most important consequence of this modification is the realization that mass is nothing but a form of energy. Even an object at rest has energy stored in its mass, and the relation between the two is given by the famous equation E=mc2, c being the speed of light.
This constant c, the speed of light, is of fundamental importance for the theory of relativity. Whenever we describe physical phenomena involving velocities which approach the speed of light, our description has to take relativity theory into account. This applies in particular to electromagnetic phenomena, of which light is just one example and which led Einstein to the formulation of his theory.
In 1915, Einstein proposed his general theory of relativity in which the framework of the special theory is extended to include gravity, i.e. the mutual attraction of all massive bodies. Whereas the ‘special theory’ has been confirmed by innumerable experiments, the ‘general theory’ has not yet been confirmed conclusively; however, it is so far the most accepted, consistent and elegant theory of gravity and is widely used in astrophysics and cosmology for the description of the universe at large.
The force of gravity, according to Einstein’s theory, has the effect of ‘curving’ space and time. This means that ordinary Euclidian geometry is no longer valid in such a curved space, just as the two-dimensional geometry of a plane cannot be applied on the surface of a sphere. (pp.62-65)
Towards the end of this chapter on “modern physics,” Capara cautions against the use of these theories indiscriminately. Newtonian theory and Maxwell’s electrodynamics are not entirely obsolete, and relativity theory and quantum theory cannot explain everything.
The mechanistic world view of classical physics was based on the notion of solid bodies moving in empty space. This notion is still valid in the region that has been called the ‘zone of middle dimensions’, that is, in the realm of our daily experience where classical physics continues to be a useful theory. Both concepts – that of empty space and that of solid material bodies – are deeply ingrained in our habits of thought, so it is extremely difficult for us to imagine a physical reality where they do not apply. And yet, this is precisely what modern physics forces us to do when we go beyond the middle dimensions. ‘Empty space’ has lost its meaning in astrophysics and cosmology, the sciences of the universe at large, and the concept of solid objects was shattered by atomic physics, the science of the infinitely small.(p.67)
Nevertheless, this chapter from the intellectual history of scientific thought does provide insights into changes in perspective and how cultural hegemony can govern our views of the world. Learning to question and to think critically should free us from the dogma of dominant narrative, the ruling paradigm; and enable us to participate collectively in the construction of the “categorical imperatives” which we must face.
The 22 + items below provide information that might be useful in evaluating the conditions in which we are now living. The historic turmoil caused by the colossal breakdowns of our economic and ecological systems, not to mention the insane warmongering orchestrated by a self-appointed power elite, make it incumbent upon all of us to educate ourselves and those around us. Alternative views are expressed frequently in the social media, and we should be equipped to study these views and decide for ourselves if they are possible, plausible or true. Without this critical capacity, we are abandoned to the whims of demagogues and charlatans, which history shows us can only end in disaster.

The Genesis of the 1918 Spanish Influenza Pandemic
with Dr. Michael Worobey, Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, The University of Arizona
The Spanish influenza pandemic of 1918 was the most intense outbreak of disease in human history. It killed upwards of 50 million people (most in a six-week period) casting a long shadow of fear and mystery: nearly a century later, scientists have been unable to explain why, unlike all other influenza outbreaks, it killed young adults in huge numbers. I will describe how analyses of large numbers of influenza virus genomes are revealing the pathway traveled by the genes of this virus before it exploded in 1918. What emerges is a surprising tale with many players and plot lines, in which echoes of prior pandemics, imprinted in the immune responses of those alive in 1918, set the stage for the catastrophe. I will also discuss how resolving the mysteries of 1918 could help to prevent future pandemics and to control seasonal influenza, which quietly kills millions more every decade.

Subject: [MCM] Two takes on the current war against humanity
Why beat around the bush? What we don't know—or what we refuse to face—can kill us,
and is killing us.
1. From John Kirby:
SHORT ANALYSIS OF A FOUR-PRONGED PARADIGM ATTACK
1- The biological/psychological, beginning with whatever the virus is, which kills very selectively with the help of protocol ventilator abuse and preexisting chronic disease in an unhealthy population (and likely regardless of “distancing”). Since actual deaths are quite low and likely not beyond the statistical norm, this aspect of the attack has been largely psychological. The actual illness, however caused, could be a precursor or set-up for what is likely the real population reduction engine, the vaccine.
2- The political, massive “wartime unity” effect (“alone together”); the obvious effects of lockdown and “distancing” on dissent, which are further enabled by
3- The financial, the massive wealth transfer, the penury of the middle class and destruction of small business and small farms, the periodic need to “pop and bail” the bubble-finance economy, trillions in pyramid schemes propped up once again, debt peonage for the many. Universal Basic Income a subsidy to corporate wages and dependent on good behavior, the “dull compulsion of the economic” for the masses, enforced by
4- The biomedical/biometric, “immunity cards”, subcutaneous chips, “digital certificates”, “quantum tattoos” and possible nanotech vaccines that are either poison, reactive to a further viral/chemical attack or filled with “bots” that can be accessed by the WiFi/cellular network to achieve injury, death or compliance through one technique or another.
I think they had a number of pressing reasons to “unzip” this paradigm attack, one of the keys being the rise of automation and AI creating profit pressure to reduce the superfluous workforce, leading to the rise a technocratic-“socialist” state of entrained consumers and/or massive population reduction.
Also, as per history, people were getting restive again (Yellow Vests, et. al.) and the expanded consciousness that the Internet can provide was creating broad distrust of authorities.
They have revealed themselves as a global power structure, in my view, and as one theorist says, have “closed the door behind them”. This is it. However, though they are way ahead of us, we are still stronger if we recognize it. As Marx (I think) said, we could rise up and shake them off like a dog shakes off its fleas, if we dared... and some people are daring. See Germany, Michigan, Ohio.
As any and all political-economic models are overshadowed by ultra-high tech, it might be that the only solution is some kind of decentralized agrarian tech-selective model. Otherwise it’s Faust, Faust, Faust...
2. From Dick Atlee:
is so much information coming across my path these days that it is
hard to pick and choose what might be of interest to people on this list —
so many possible recommendations, and I just haven't been able to get
around to sharing it. So this note is just a heads-up, without the
voluminous supporting documentation that some might rightfully demand. I
hope I'll be able to send some of that out later.
I'm sending this now because there is so much talk starting about how
things will manage to return to something like they were "before."
Sometimes it feels like that, at least for those of us fairly well off in
whatever makes it possible to get through this with just inconveniences.
(And for people like me, who live on a state pension, the stock market
crash may force states to renege on pension obligations.) But, in fact,
things will not be the same, because of larger forces at work that don't
seem to rise above the shallow virus-as-health-threat-and-inconveniencer
mainstream news coverage.
There are two main interrelated themes:
(1) the virus as cover for massive changes in the financial system that, of
course, benefit the incredibly wealthy and powerful and aim in the
direction of beggaring the rest of us, and
(2) the large-scale effects that the lockdown-induced removal of workers
from their workplaces is going to have on the future of those workers and
(1) is being forwarded in part by the Fed's creation or augmentation of a
variety of financial manipulation tools. Two good sources for information
on this are James Corbett's interview with John Titus (who has been putting
out a video series called "Mafiacracy Now"), and James's recent "The
Greatest Depression" episode (with extensive documentation show notes):
Regarding (2), many businesses still operating (particularly in retail —
e.g., Walmart, Amazon, fast food) are finding the solution to their
manpower problems is robotic technology. It solves social distancing
problems and reduces the costs and vicissitudes associated with human
employees. Sales of robotics products are soaring. Before the virus struck,
it had been predicted that as many as half of all jobs existing now would
be gone by 2050, but the move to automation underlying this has been
greatly accelerated by the lockdown. When people go back to their jobs,
many will find the jobs no longer there.
The "solution" to this — now already in effect in Spain and being
considered all over Europe — is Universal Basic Income (UBI). The idea has
been around for a long time (and advocated by many of us "progressives",
but it has become the darling of the billionaire class because the social
unrest that automation will unleash might become a problem for them. The
haggling over the U.S. stimulus payment that settled on a one-time (or
maybe even periodic) $1200 payment shows how out-of-touch the ruling class
is with the financial realities of the vast majority of working people. But
it is that ruling class will be deciding what our UBI is.
THE BIG ONE: But the truly threatening reality inherent in the UBI is that
it is the government that will be dishing it out. The same government that
is possessed of an armamentarium of increasingly sophisticated tracking
technology, already in use in many places in the U.S., to see who is
getting too close to whom, or going to places or doing things they "hadn't
Some people will say, "I have nothing to hide." But China is the test bed
our government is eagerly watching, and in China what you get to do, where
you can go (even out of your house: "lockdown"), and what your income
opportunities are, are now tied to your "social credit score," which is
tied to how well you follow the government's mandates.
The social credit score is essentially a push of a button away in the U.S.
and actively being talked about by policy think tanks. If you eventually
don't have an independent job, and are reliant on whatever pittance-level
UBI the powers that be will have decided to dole out to you, you have
become what used to be called, in blunt terms, a slave. What will you do if
that UBI is cut off for bad behavior?
Think about Bill Gates, as described in my previous note. He is one of
those waiting in the wings to help define good behavior. And he wants it to

message starts at about that time, and you NEED to be aware of it as you
watch things unfold.
The final straw to this dystopic vision is provided by what appears to have
been a fundamental misconception of how the pandemic has been playing out
that has driven the policy response. If true, it will have caused us to
lose the opportunity for a reasonable level of real "herd immunity" (as
opposed to the fictitious vaccine version), and condemned us to one or more
repeated surges of disease and more lockdowns that will further enable the
processes described above.

Subject: Is Congress fighting Venezuela instead of Covid-19?
Nobody in Congress has said a word about Trump’s deployment of ships and troops just off Venezuelan waters during a pandemic that has cost the lives of tens of thousands of our fellow citizens. Trump has been threatening war with Venezuela for nearly three years, and he’s been hinting at a naval blockade of the country (which itself is an act of war) since August 2019. This deployment could be the first step in such a blockade. It also puts thousands of U.S. sailors and marines at risk for contagion of COVID-19.
The good news is that there are already two bills in Congress prohibiting the Trump administration from using military force in Venezuela without Congressional authorization. The bad news is that those two bills have stalled and nobody in Congress has stepped up to denounce this dangerous escalation in the Trump administration’s goal of regime change in Venezuela.
We might be on the brink of war with Venezuela! Let’s tell Congress to actively support S.J.Res.11 in the Senate and H.R.1004 in the House, which prohibit unauthorized military action against Venezuela!
The pretext of the U.S. Navy deployment is an alleged plot by the Venezuelan government “to flood the streets” of the U.S. with cocaine, which is absurd since 92% of the cocaine in the U.S. comes from Colombia. The actual reason is regime change, and in recent days the White House stepped up its efforts to destroy the Venezuelan economy by banning U.S. companies from selling gasoline or gasoline additives (which are necessary to produce gasoline) to the country. A senior Venezuelan official expressed concern that the naval deployment could be used to attack the Venezuelan economy if oil tankers and other trade ships are boarded and have their cargo seized by the U.S. Navy. This is a real possibility given that a Pentagon official recently claimed, without any evidence, that Venezuelan oil tankers ship drugs to Cuba.
It might seem unlikely for Congress to take action on foreign policy during these difficult times, as they are understandably focused almost exclusively on COVID-19. That is why in our emails to Congress, we will frame the debate in terms of the coronavirus. After all, the White House itself has already done this, claiming in a press conference that the deployment will somehow help fight the virus. In fact, the deployment will make the virus even worse; as we saw on the USS Theodore Roosevelt, U.S. service members are particularly at risk for contagion, given that they live in close quarters—especially on ships. The Department of Defense has already said that over 4,700 of its members (including military and civilians) have contracted COVID-19.
Despite the call for a global ceasefire, Trump is sending more troops and military assets towards Venezuela, a country he has had on his radar for years. The Venezuelan people have asked us to help stop Trump’s war. Venezuela is doing a great job so far in containing COVID-19, but the sanctions continue to kill innocent civilians and the navy deployment will make things worse. Let’s oppose U.S. intervention and take action to stop this war.
Join us in saying Hands Off Venezuela,

Vaccines and the Liberal Mind
by Robert Kennedy Jr.
Instead of demanding blue-ribbon safety science and encouraging honest, open and responsible debate on the science, too many online outlets are silencing critics and shutting down discussion on this key public health and civil rights issue.
Late last year, Slate published an investigative report detailing how pharmaceutical giant, Merck, used “flawed” and “unreliable” pre-licensing safety studies to push through approval of its multi-billion-dollar bonanza, the HPV vaccine. For veteran safe vaccine advocates, like myself, the most shocking aspect of the expose was that Slate published it at all. Slate and other liberal online publications including Salon, Huffington Post and The Daily Beast customarily block articles that critique vaccine safety in order, they argue, to encourage vaccination and protect public health. Motivated by this noble purpose, the liberal media—the supposed antidote to corporate and government power—has helped insulate from scrutiny the burgeoning vaccine industry and its two regulators, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Both agencies have pervasive and potentially corrupting financial entanglements with the vaccine manufacturers, according to extensive congressional investigations.
Ironically, liberals routinely lambaste Pharma, and its FDA enablers for putting profits over people. Recent examples include Vioxx (100,000 injured—Merck paid more than $5 billion in fines and settlements), Abilify (Bristol Meyers Squibb paid $515 million for marketing the drug to nursing homes, knowing it can be fatal to seniors), Celebrex and Bextra (Pfizer paid $894 million for bribing public officials and false advertising about safety and effectiveness) and, of course, the opioid crisis, which in 2016 killed more Americans than the 20-year Vietnam War. What then, makes liberals think that these same companies are immune from similar temptations when it comes to vaccines? There is plenty of evidence that they are not. Merck, the world’s largest vaccine maker, is currently fighting multiple lawsuits, brought by its own scientists, claiming that the company forced them to falsify efficacy data for its MMR vaccine.
The Slate article nowhere discloses that FDA licenses virtually all vaccines using the same mawing safety science deficiencies that brought us Gardasil. FDA claims that “vaccines undergo rigorous safety testing to determine their safety.” But that’s not true. FDA’s choice to classify vaccine makers as “biologics” rather than “drugs” opened a regulatory loophole that allows vaccines to evade any meaningful safety testing. Instead of the multi-year double-blind inert placebo studies—the gold standard of safety science—that the FDA requires prior to licensing other medications, most vaccines now on the CDC’s recommended childhood vaccine schedule were safety tested for only a few days or weeks. For example, the manufacturer’s package insert discloses that Merck’s Hep B vaccine (almost every American infant receives a Hep B shot on the day of birth) underwent, not five years, but a mere five days of safety testing. If the babies in these studies had a seizure—or died—on day six, Merck was under no obligation to disclose those facts.

Subject: [MCM] On the worthlessness of the "corona test"—whose OWN INVENTOR didn't think it should be used for medical diagnosis (MUST-READ)
This long piece, by my friend Celia Farber, is well worth reading to the end,
and sending far and wide.
What with a test that yields up to 80% false positives, the CDC instructing doctors
to diagnose cases as COVID-19 even if it's based entirely on "presumption," and
a media system with no interest in this crisis other than to keep us in a constant

The Corona Simulation Machine: Why the Inventor of The “Corona Test” Would Have Warned Us Not To Use It To Detect A Virus
by Celia Farber
April 7, 2020
“Scientists are doing an awful lot of damage to the world in the name of helping it. I don’t mind attacking my own fraternity because I am ashamed of it.” –Kary Mullis, Inventor of Polymerase Chain Reaction
What do we mean when we say somebody has ‘tested positive’ for the Corona Virus? The answer would astound you. But getting this “answer” is like getting to a very rare mushroom that only grows above 200 feet on a Sequoia tree in the forbidden forest.
I say that for dramatic effect, but also because I wound up, against all odds, finding it.
Every day I wake up and work at shedding one more layer of ignorance —by listening carefully. I got lucky with scientists many years ago; Epic, incredible scientists, happening to cross my path when nobody else wanted to talk to them. Now their names are emerging, their warnings and corrections crystallizing. True “science” (the nature of the natural world) is never bad news. Globalist science is nothing but bad news.
The reason Bill Gates wants you to believe a Corona Virus will exterminate over 450 million people is that he hates nature, God, and you. (A subjective interpretation.)
Why is that? You’d have to ask his psychiatrist.
But let’s talk about the latest terror bomb detonated by Global Atheist PC Creeps upon your perfectly good, free life as a US citizen in 2020, governed by a President who does not think backwards.
How many of us are “infected” with this novel Corona virus, and how scared should we be?
First, a spiritual law: Anything that tries to frighten you comes from “opposition,” in spiritual battle. It’s not the Holy Spirit, period. Ignore its threats and keep your wits about you. You don’t have to shout, “Stay safe!’ to your neighbors. We are safe. We have an immune system that is a miracle like The Sistine Chapel. It withstands toxic, microbial inundation on a grand scale at all times, while operating a super-highway of adaptive life-sustaining genetic information, on cellular bridges, emitting telegrams of vital evolutionary code, slandered as “viruses” or “retroviruses.”
People die—yes. But people don’t die the way Bill Gates would have you believe, at the mercy of malicious, predatory pathogens, “lurking” on every surface, and especially other humans. That’s not “science.” That’s social engineering. Terrorism.
What do we mean when we say a person “tests positive” for Covid-19?
We don’t actually mean they have been found to “have” it.
We’ve been hijacked by our technologies, but left illiterate about what they actually mean. In this case, I am in the rare position of having known, spent time with, and interviewed the inventor of the method used in the presently available Covid-19 tests, which is called PCR, (Polymerase Chain Reaction.)
His name was Kary B. Mullis, and he was one of the warmest, funniest, most eclectic-minded people I ever met, in addition to being a staunch critic of HIV “science,” and an unlikely Nobel Laureate, i.e. a “genius.”
One time, in 1994, when I called to talk to him about how PCR was being weaponized to “prove,” almost a decade after it was asserted, that HIV caused AIDS, he actually came to tears.
The people who have taken all your freedoms away in recent weeks, they’re social engineers, politicians, globalist thought leaders, bankers, WHO fanatics, and the like. Their army is composed of “mainstream media,” which is now literally a round-the-clock perfect propaganda machine for the Gates-led Pandemic Reich.
Kary Mullis was a scientist. He never spoke like a globalist, and said once, memorably, when accused of making statements about HIV that could endanger lives: “I’m a scientist. I’m not a lifeguard.” That’s a very important line in the sand. Somebody who goes around claiming they are “saving lives,” is a very dangerous animal, and you should run in the opposite direction when you encounter them. Their weapon is fear, and their favorite word is “could.” They entrap you with a form of bio-debt, creating simulations of every imaginable thing that “could” happen, yet hasn’t. Bill Gates has been waiting a long time for a virus with this much, as he put it, “pandemic potential.” But Gates has a problem, and it’s called PCR.
Of Mullis’ invention, Polymerase Chain Reaction, the London Observer wrote:
“Not since James Watt walked across Glasgow Green in 1765 and realized that the secondary steam condenser would transform steam power, an inspiration that set loose the industrial revolution, has a single, momentous idea been so well recorded in time and place.”
What does HIV have to do with Covid-19?
PCR played a central role in the HIV war (a war you don’t know about, that lasted 22 years, between Globalist post-modern HIV scientists and classical scientists.) The latter lost the war. Unless you count being correct as winning. The relentless violence finally silenced the opposition, and it seemed nobody would ever learn who these scientists were, or why they fought this thing so adamantly and passionately.
And PCR, though its inventor died last year, and isn’t here to address it, plays a central role in Corona terrorism.
Here is an outtake from an article I published in SPIN, in 1994, about Kary Mullis, PCR, HIV and…Tony Fauci . . . .

Coronavirus – The Aftermath. A Coming Mega-Depression...
by Peter Koenig
What will be next? Is a question on many people’s minds. Very likely the world will never be the same again. That might be good, or not so good, depending on how we look at this disastrous, “pandemic” which by all serious accounts does not deserve the term “pandemic”, that was unwittingly attributed to the SARS-2-CoV, or 2019-nCoV, renamed by WHO as COVID-19.
On March 11, Dr. Tedros, WHO’s Director General called it a pandemic. This decision was already taken by the WEF (World Economic Forum) in Davos, from 20 -24 January 2020, when the total COVID19 cases outside of China were recorded by WHO as 150. On January 30, the WHO Director General determines that the outbreak outside of Mainland China constituted a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). This was a first indication that there was something not quite right, that there is another agenda behind the “outbreak” of the COVID-19 disease.
Total system failure will give rise to new economy
by Pepe Escobar
Covid-19 driven collapse of global supply chains,
demand and mobility will painfully spawn next great tech-led economic models
Nobody, anywhere, could have predicted what we are now witnessing: in a matter of only a few weeks the accumulated collapse of global supply chains, aggregate demand, consumption, investment, exports, mobility.
Nobody is betting on an L-shaped recovery anymore – not to mention a V-shaped one. Any projection of global gross domestic product (GDP) in 2020 gets into falling-off-a-cliff territory.
In industrialized economies, where roughly 70% of the workforce is in services, countless businesses in myriad industries will fail in a rolling financial collapse that will eclipse the Great Depression.
That spans the whole spectrum of possibly 47 million US workers soon to be laid off – with the unemployment rate skyrocketing to 32% – all the way to Oxfam’s warning that by the time the pandemic is over half of the world’s population of 7.8 billion people could be living in poverty.
According to the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) most optimistic 2020 scenario – certainly to become outdated before the end of Spring – global trade would shrink by 13%. A more realistic and gloomier WTO scenario sees global trade plunging by 32%.
What we are witnessing is not only a massive globalization short circuit: it’s a cerebral shock extended to three billion hyperconnected, simultaneously confined people. Their bodies may be blocked, but they are electromagnetic beings and their brains keep working – with possible, unforeseen political and other consequences.
Soon we will be facing three major, interlocking debates: the management (in many cases appalling) of the crisis; the search for future models; and the reconfiguration of the world-system.
This is just a first approach in what should be seen as a do-or-die cognitive competition.

Hospital Staff 'Looking for Reasons to Make Trouble' Amid COVID,
by Sheila Mulrooney Eldred
Matching the surge in COVID-19 cases is a surge of healthcare workers who won't speak to journalists for fear of losing their jobs.
Why the sudden spook. The top brass at hospitals and healthcare systems across the country have become so concerned about reputation that they've been issuing gag orders to their staff, prohibiting them from speaking to the pressMatching the surge in COVID-19 cases is a surge of healthcare workers who won't speak to journalists for fear of losing their jobs.
Why the sudden spook? The top brass at hospitals and healthcare systems across the country have become so concerned about reputation that they've been issuing gag orders to their staff, prohibiting them from speaking to the press. Some physicians and other healthcare workers have been disciplined or even fired for speaking up about shortages of personal protective equipment or concern for their colleagues' safety.
The problem is much larger than hospital reputations, however, and many have spoken up in concern that the practice will negatively affect public health.
Yet the unofficial policies persist. Just last Thursday, April 9, the CEO of Woodhull Hospital, in Brooklyn, called out employees for speaking to the press. Administrators at the hospital, one of eleven in NYC Health + Hospitals' public system, host a daily conference call to keep employees up to speed on rapidly changing situations and policies. Recent calls have left staffers anxious about being reprimanded for speaking up for safety concerns for themselves and patients, employees said. In last week's meeting, a recording of which was obtained by Medscape Medical News, hospital CEO Gregory Calliste chastised employees for speaking to journalists about various concerns. The following is an excerpted transcript of that video conference:

Leaked footage shows Emmanuel Macron arguing with hospital worker
just days before extending France’s Covid-19 lockdown
A video has emerged of the French president having a blazing row with a medic just days before he admitted France had been under-prepared for the coronavirus outbreak.
Emmanuel Macron was filmed arguing with the hospital worker while he was on a visit to the Kremlin-Bicetre hospital in Paris on April 9.
Shortly after the clip, which was released by a medical workers union, the president was shown in footage released by his office leading a round of applause with staff at the facility.
In the footage of the argument, he can be seen telling hospital workers “we haven't made up for 15 years of hospital tariff cuts, you're right,” before ducking the blame for France’s current situation saying, “but I won't take responsibility for anything that's been done before [taking office].”

The Veneer of Justice in a Kingdom of Crime
with John Titus
Summary. The criminal global banking cartel has effected a coup d’etat in the U.S. This is why the same criminal financial elite that saw 1000 of its members go to prison 20 years ago (after the S&L crisis) is now above the law. To date, the question of why the U.S. Department of Justice has failed to prosecute even one too-big-to-fail bank for the pervasive criminal frauds that drove the multi-trillion-dollar economic meltdown of 2008 has been answered pretty much with shrugs. By far the most insightful answer was provided by Martin Smith’s breathtaking Untouchables episode, which PBS Frontline aired in January 2013. See http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/fil... But even Smith’s answer—that the DOJ never truly investigated Wall Street crime due largely to the so-called collateral consequences doctrine—really explains how rather than why prosecutions have been scuttled. In an effort to pick up where the Untouchables left off in early 2013, BestEvidence presents “The Veneer of Justice in a Kingdom of Crime.” In addition to analyzing events that have occurred since the Untouchables aired (including events caused by the Untouchables), and in an attempt to answer some of the deeply troubling issues raised by Martin Smith, “Veneer" examines certain implications the DOJ's pronouncements, since late 2012, that the rule of law is effectively dead (having been supplanted by the management of oversized global banks).
What follows is a brief American legal history of the executive branch's overthrow by criminal global banks, which is divided into four roughly chronological segments.
I. Background (March 2010 to December 2012) Goldman Sachs’ legal defenses to fraud—and the DOJ’s adoption of those defenses—are summarized and exposed as false. The DOJ soon admits it refrains from prosecutions not based on any law, but on unspecified collateral effects that prosecutions allegedly would have.
II. Lessons From the Untouchables (January 2013) Since it won't prosecute Wall Street, the DOJ doesn't even bother conducting investigations. The overriding factor is collateral consequences. Two potential sources for collateral consequences opinions emerge: government regulators and the very financial institutions that have been accused of crimes.
III. The DOJ’s Endless Lies to Conceal Its Master (February 2013 - April 2014) The DOJ’s claim that government regulators provided opinions on collateral consequences is exposed as a lie. There never were any such regulators. Instead, the DOJ’s sources of collateral consequences opinions are—as the DOJ itself once admitted, before falsely backtracking—the very banks accused of crimes. The collateral consequences doctrine itself is next exposed as a sham, used by global banks to declare immunity from their own crimes—the act of a king.
IV. Presenting the True Sovereign Power in the Executive Branch The one bank that’s on record as having gained access to a DOJ conference room—where, as the DOJ previously admitted, global banks asserted immunity from their own crimes—is revealed. The true chain of command in the DOJ is presented.
Weimar America, Here We Come! Virus Hysteria Adds $10 Trillion to the National Debt
by Mike Whitney
There’s no doubt that the Coronavirus is a serious infection that can lead to severe illness or death. There’s also no doubt that ‘virus hysteria’ has been used for other purposes. Wall Street, for example, has used virus-panic to advance its own agenda and get another round of trillion dollar bailouts. In fact, it took less than a week to get the pushover congress to ram through a massive $2.2 trillion boondoggle without even one lousy congressman offering a peep of protest. That’s got to be some kind of record.
In 2008, at the peak of the financial crisis, Congress voted “No” to the $700 billion TARP bill. Some readers might recall how a number of GOP congressmen bravely banded together and flipped Wall Street “the bird”. That didn’t happen this time around. Even though the bill is three times bigger than the TARP ( $2.2 trillion), no one lifted a finger to stop it. Why?
Fear, that’s why. Everyone in congress was scared to death that if they didn’t rush this debt-turd through the House pronto, the economy would collapse while tens of thousands of corpses would be stacking up in cities across the country. Of course the reason they believed this nonsense was because the goofy infectious disease experts confidently assured everyone that the body-count would be “in the hundreds of thousands if not millions.” Remember that fiction? The most recent estimate is somewhere in the neighborhood of 60,000 total. I don’t need to tell you that the difference between 60,000 and “millions” is a little more than a rounding-error.
So we’ve had the wool pulled over our eyes, right? Not as bad as congress, but, all the same, we’ve been hoodwinked and we’ve been fleeced. And the people who have axes to grind have been very successful in taking advantage of the hysteria and promoting their own agendas. Maybe you’ve noticed the reemergence of creepy Bill Gates and the Vaccine Gestapo or NWO Henry Kissinger warning us that, “the world will never be the same after the coronavirus”.
What do these people know that we don’t know? Doesn’t it all make you a bit suspicious? And when you see nonstop commercials on TV telling you to “wash your hands”or “keep your distance” or “stay inside” and, oh yeah, “We’re all in this together”, doesn’t it leave you scratching your head and wondering who the hell is orchestrating this virus-charade and what do they really have in mind for us unwashed masses??
At least in the case of Wall Street, we know what they want. They want money and lots of it.
Have you looked over the $2.2 trillion CARES bill that Trump just signed into law a couple weeks ago? It’s pretty grim reading, so I’ll save you the effort. Here’s a rough breakdown:
$250 billion will go for the $1,200 checks that most of us will receive in a couple weeks. And $250 billion will be provided for extended unemployment insurance benefits.
That’s $500 billion.
Working people will get $500 billion while Wall Street and Corporate America will get 3 times that amount. ($1.7 trillion) And even that’s a mere fraction of the total sum because– hidden in the small print– is a section that allows the Fed to lever-up the base-capital by 10-to-1 ($450 billion to $4.5 trillion) which means the Fed can buy as many “toxic” bonds and garbage assets as it chooses.
We Used To Throw Criminals Off
by John Titus
With the entire mainstream media-devouring population tirelessly fixated on Donald Trump’s latest reality TV offering with an intensity that would scare Newark’s biggest meth enthusiast into a monastery, the U.S. hurtles cluelessly towards the worst financial crisis in, oh, 500 years or so. Against this surreal backdrop, Best Evidence is pleased to present the very first episode of “Mafiacracy Now,” a modest dollop of ice-cold legal reality for the dozen or so U.S. residents capable of responding to the U.S.S. Horror Show with even a scrap of sanity, by at least pausing now and then to ask themselves things like “is this shit ACTUALLY going on right now?” Sadly, yes, it is going on right now. And it won’t end well, either. This is what happens, Larry, when you hand the keys of the kingdom over to criminal bankers. This series will seek to explain over the course of many, many depressing episodes how we got into this mess and thus how we can get out. Hint: REVOLUTION, the legal levers for reform having been stolen long ago by criminals; see the problem? This series likewise will dismantle, with no more than a glass of tap water, the absurd paper mâché Disneyworld edifice hiding the rot that is the U.S. economy. Ahh, but we’re getting ahead of ourselves. For now, in this debut episode of “Mafiacracy Now,” Best Evidence—following an unfortunately long lacuna that is explained herein—brings us back up to speed with a quick summary of how the banks, which, having been rewarded with wholesale criminal immunity for causing the last crisis, are now positioned with more legal power than is possessed by the president, congress, and the Supreme Court COMBINED as they steer us relentlessly into the next crisis. Oh, joy.

Greg Reese hits it out of the park, once again with this short video that enumerates the manifold entanglements of everyone on Trump’s COVID-19 response team with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Big Pharma.
Anthony Fauci does not like conspiracy theories. And if the President does not fire several members of his COVID-19 response team, the books written in the future will likely be about the Bill Gates-Big Pharma takeover of America.
• Dr Fauci is on the Leadership Council for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
• Deborah Birx is a board member for the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which was founded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
• Robert Redfield, current director of the CDC was a founder of the Institute of Human Virology, who has received $31.8 million from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
• Seema Verma has worked with Sue Desmond-Hellman, Chief Executive Officer of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
• Alex Azar was President of Eli Lilly’s US division. Under his leadership, prices for the company’s top-selling insulin drug tripled, which led to a class-action lawsuit.
• Jerome Adams received a medical scholarship from Eli Lilly.
• Stephen Hahn is commissioner for the FDA who partnered with Bill and Melinda Gates in 2017.
• Stephen Mnuchin was a member of Skull and Bones at Yale University and he partnered with George Soros to create SFM Capital Management.
• Bret Giroir was the Director of DARPA.
• CDC official, Dr. Nancy Messonnier is Rod Rosenstein’s sister.
Many have been concerned that President Trump has been surrounded by Deep State operatives for the past three years. Well, now he seems to be completely surrounded by Big Pharma and Bill Gates loyalists, all pushing vaccines as the solution and admitting that they might make things worse.
Los Angeles has announced that they’re going to pay people to snitch on their neighbors.
LA Mayor Eric Garcetti: “You know the old expression about snitches. Well, in this case, snitches get rewards we want to thank you for turning folks in and making sure we are all safe.”
And the public is now being prepared for mandatory certificates of immunity in order to freely leave their homes.
CNN Reporter: “Can you imagine a time where Americans carry certificates of immunity?
Dr Anthony Fauci: “You know, that’s possible. I mean, it’s one of those things that we talk about when we want to make sure that we know who the vulnerable people are and not – this is something that’s being discussed. I think it might actually be have some merit under certain circumstances.”

Lettre ouverte à une amie, à une syndicaliste, à une Gilet jaune qui « croit » à l’hydroxychloroquine

Two articles that I wrote :

April 14, 2020
Like me, you discovered with interest the work of Professor Raoult of Marseille, who spoke of hydroxychloroquine as a molecule which had proven its effectiveness against Covid-19. And I would add who decided to massively test the Marseillais, when the government said that it was useless! Of course I was surprised that instead of doing tests close to the locals, in neighborhoods, laboratories, companies, he sometimes gathered in disregard of social distances a crowd in front of his institute.
Like a symbol of the providential man, one against all!

But I knew about chloroquine, having taken it for malaria prevention some 20 years ago, when it was still effective. 100 mg daily. But there, the dose is 600 mg per day. At this dose, the risks of heart rhythm disturbances, sudden death are significant.
Even more important when hydroxychloroquine is used in combination with other medicines, which like it "increase QT". Among them is azithromycin, used in its protocol. But also the ventoline that you use against your asthma, or the anti-allergic ones against the pollens which rot your life. If we add that 20% of patients with Covid-19 in intensive care have an attack of the heart muscle, that makes three cardiovascular risk factors! The association would have to be damn effective for the benefit-risk balance to be good!
Like you, I am an opponent of the pharmaceutical trusts which have shown us a hundred times that they prefer their profits to our health. In 2001, they sued South Africa, which sold 30 dollars worth of generics against AIDS, that they sold 3,000 dollars. So I went to read not the medical press sponsored by the labs, but the journal Prescrire. An independent pharmacology journal, funded solely by its subscribers, which for example released the Mediator scandal. And there my disappointment was immense for your hero! Of the 26 patients who received hydroxychloroquine, three patients were transferred to intensive care and one patient died. But Professor Raoult decided to take them out of his results, to stop counting them! No such development was described among the 16 control patients. In the absence of a control group recruited according to a similar protocol and identical follow-up, it is not known whether the time taken to carry the virus is shorter or not in the absence of hydroxychloroquine.
"End of game for the Covid"?
Worse, at the beginning of March 2020, the Chinese professor Chen published an essay with two groups determined by drawing lots, with no major difference in characteristics. In the 30 Covid-19 patients, no demonstration of the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine. With a disappearance of the virus in the throat in four days in the chloroquine group, against two days in the group without. The state of health of certain patients having worsened, all in the chloroquine group, the hypothesis that it sometimes worsens Covid-19 is not excluded! Hydroxychloroquine is used to false good news. Already against chikungunya, it was active in vitro, in the test tube. But in the body, it is something else! It promoted the development of the virus, prolonged the fever, the carriage and the duration of the pains! And against the coronavirus of 2003, it had not shown any real effectiveness.
Many countries, far from the French controversy, have integrated hydroxychloroquine into their protocols and research. Like Sweden for example, which has just abandoned it. Too many heart problems, not enough efficiency. We are far from the thunderous declarations of Professor Raoult, who did not hesitate to say "end of game for the Covid": "The disease will soon be one of the simplest and cheapest to treat and prevent, among all infectious respiratory diseases. "More than 100,000 dead later, the demonstration is not made!
So you think it works and I don't? But no, I tell you that we need to do real studies, on hydroxychloroquine, on antivirals, on the plasma of immunized people, to really know what works or not, on whom, at what time of the disease. But Professor Raoult refused to do so, arguing that double-blind clinical studies, against placebo or a drug recognized as effective, are bureaucratic machines, imposed by the labs. So there, my blood has only been a lap, because if pharmacological studies are the norm in the drug, it is not because the pharmaceutical industry wanted it, it costs him billions and, at the on the contrary it wishes to lighten them. This is because after the health scandals of the 1970s, and in particular the scandal of infants without arms of thalidomine, an anti-nausea drug put on the market without studies, everywhere consumer associations imposed these studies, which unfortunately have have been entrusted by the governments to the labs themselves. These studies must be defended against the pharmaceutical industry, and made independent!
"Professor Raoult no longer makes me dream"
Climatic-skeptical, supporter of GMOs, battling against feminist movements, adored by conspirators and the billionaire president Donald Trump, Professor Raoult remains a great infectious disease specialist and his hydroxychloroquine must be scientifically tested. But it no longer makes me dream. If you want to oppose the pharmacy trusts, in these times of shortage, of a capitalist stranglehold on the race for drugs and vaccines, look rather on the side of the appeal of 61 European organizations, including Doctors of the World , the Observatory of transparency in drug policies, the journal Prescrire. Millions of euros in grants are awarded for medical research by the European Union and governments. But these public subsidies "do not mention any guarantee that financial accessibility clauses will be put in place to facilitate access to the product", "Community financing does not prevent the issuance of exclusive operating licenses", in other words patents that will sell to the highest bidder. "Given the public health emergency, we cannot allow a business as usual approach in which market dynamics dictate pricing at the expense of rapid access, and where financial considerations - rather than public health - guide where and when the products will be available ”. Our lives are worth more than their profits, but that does not go through Professor Raoult.
Masks and tests: shortage and state lies
April 8, 2020
The king is naked and he lied! For weeks, the messages of power on useless masks and tests to be reserved for resuscitation services have been nothing but a facade to mask the unthinkable.
To save 50 million euros, the Hollande-Marisol Touraine government has liquidated strategic mask stocks. To make it cheaper, the production of surgical masks, like that of the former Giffard company in Plaintel, however profitable, was relocated, and its machines thrown away for scrap.
Lying and cynicism
To divert the glance from this shortage, one accuses the great fair of capitalist grip on the masks, very real, the prices which explode, the USA which steals “our” masks, even on the tarmac of the Chinese airports, forgetting that France does the same with 4 million masks purchased by Sweden, as the Express revealed.
The medical authorities, including the Academy of Medicine, have covered this state lie about useless masks, this denial of democracy revealed by Mediapart. For weeks, in the nursing homes, the directions relayed this message, no need for masks for staff, for residents. We are paying the price, with at least 2,417 deaths in Ehpad announced this Monday. Lying and cynicism: while planes are nailed to the ground all over the world, the medical world lacks masks, the government is beating television sets by repeating that masks are reserved for health, it is organizing at the same time the diversion of hundreds of thousands of masks to the Airbus company, so that it can continue to produce. During the crisis, profits must continue ...
Where are the tests?
From January 12, China will distribute the complete genetic sequence of the virus to the rest of the world, thus allowing anyone who wants to start manufacturing screening tests. In South Korea, the first kits are thus available as of February 4, two weeks before the outbreak of the epidemic. In Germany, 500,000 tests are carried out each week, based on all city laboratories, carried out in a decentralized manner as close as possible to the populations, making it possible to isolate all the patients, and not only the most serious, but also the carriers healthy. When we know that models of the Chinese epidemic show that one in two contamination is linked to symptomless carriers, we see the value of this mass screening. Mortality in Korea and Germany attests to this. The French government has chosen the opposite path. Only test the most serious cases, at the entrance to the intensive care unit. Severely limit testing in nursing homes. Criminal madness, in contrast to WHO recommendations. From February 24 to March 27, only 200,000 tests were performed in France, while Germany performs 500,000 per week.
Late 180° turn
But it's not just the number of tests. Having chosen to test little, the French medical authorities have neglected to provide for a massive supply of swabs, to supply town laboratories with adequate protective equipment (glasses, overcoats, etc.), and to secure the supply of reagents which often come from China. The government has refused to requisition French companies "leaders in the diagnostic market that exist in France", as demanded on March 18 by the Observatory of transparency in drug policies. Wanting to test little, the department favored long techniques, requiring heavy specialized equipment, like the proprietary Roche system, incompatible with the systems of city laboratories! Whereas rapid, automated and decentralized techniques should have been favored, using all the existing biology centers, human, veterinary, research, to test as many people as possible… Rapid tests exist, swabs exist, laboratories exist. The government has turned its back on them. Obliged to make a 180 ° turn in the face of mounting anger and with the prospect of deconfinement, Olivier Veran hopes to be able to test 50,000 people a day ... But only at the end of April!
Physician Poll: Treating COVID-19 Patients with Antimalarial Drugs
65 Percent of Physicians in New Survey Would Give Anti-Malaria Drugs to Their Own Family to Treat COVID-19
All these doctors must know something that "our free press" doesn't want the rest of us
to know; and it's not just the corporate media. Today's "Democracy Now!" led with the
story that Brazil has halted its clinical trial of hydroxychloroquine, because 11 people died.
The trials in Wuhan and in France had no such fatal consequences, no doubt because
they were conducted properly; but that nuance is missing from the "DN!" story—which,
just like the New York Times, pounds the point that "President Trump has repeatedly
touted hydroxychloroquine," and so the drug can't work, because he said it does, or
With all those doctors prescribing it for COVID-19 patients, and its effectiveness having
been confirmed by those two trials, who, in this case, is more culpable? The president
who's "repeatedly touted" it, or the press that's keeping people in the dark about it (and
not just about that drug, but the several others that show promise against COVID-19, and
that Trump hasn't "touted")?

Subject: [MCM] Dr. Raoult's new study of 1,000+ patients (including seniors) shows 98% success rate with hydroxychloroquine/azithromycin
It is (as it were) deplorable that such important news about a valid regimen for treating COVID-19 should be so ferociously politicized, with "the left" (from Amy Goodman to the New York Timesand Rita Wilson) pooh-poohing it, and the right exploiting it to Trump's advantage (as in this Gateway Pundit headline).
I put scare quotes on "the left" because their blackout on the good news about hydroxychloroquine is perfectly in sync with Macron's smear campaign against Dr. Raoult, which tells us that Big Pharma and its towering accomplices are managing "the left" as well as France:

Social Distancing Enforcement Drones Arrive in the U.S.

In late January, a viral video from China showed people who’d wandered outside in the early days of the coronavirus outbreak getting scolded by a disembodied voice from a drone flying overhead. Last month, similar campaigns began in France, where locals flouting travel restrictions were gently reminded to “respectez les distances de sécurité s’il vous plaît.”
Now, self-righteous flying robots have made their way to the U.S., with at least two American police departments deploying drones to tell people to disperse, go home, and stay there.
Last Friday, the mayor of Elizabeth, New Jersey, where there are more than 1,400 confirmed cases of COVID-19, announced plans to deploy drones to enforce social-distancing rules.
“The most important thing you can do to fight this virus is stay at home,” Mayor Chris Bollwage said last Friday. “Some may notice drones monitoring your neighborhoods. These drones are going to alert people to move away from each other if they are congregating. This is not a joke. It is extremely serious.”

U.S. Government’s $3.7 Million Grant
to Wuhan Lab at Center of Coronavirus Outbreak
By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Chairman, Children’s Health Defense
The Daily Mail reported that it has uncovered documents showing that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) gave $3.7 million to scientists at the Wuhan Lab at the center of coronavirus leak scrutiny. According to the British paper, “the federal grant funded experiments on bats from the caves where the virus is believed to have originated.”
Background: Following the 2002-2003 SARS coronavirus outbreak, NIH funded a collaboration by Chinese scientists, US military virologists from the bioweapons lab at Fort Detrick and National Institutes of Health (NIH) scientists from NIAID to prevent future coronavirus outbreaks by studying the evolution of virulent strains from bats in human tissues. Those efforts included “gain of function” research which is “accelerated viral evolution” to create COVID Pandemic superbugs, enhanced bat borne COVID mutants more lethal and more transmissible than wild COVID.
… these researchers risk creating a monster germ that could escape the lab and seed a pandemic.
Fauci’s studies alarmed scientists around the globe who complained, according to a December 2017 NY Times article, that “these researchers risk creating a monster germ that could escape the lab and seed a pandemic.” Dr. Marc Lipsitch of the Harvard School of Public Health’s Communicable Disease Center told the Times that Dr. Fauci’s NIAID experiments “have given us some modest scientific knowledge and done almost nothing to improve our preparedness for pandemic, and yet risked creating an accidental pandemic.”
