West Nile: They’re lying to you again
by Jon Rappoport

The government PR machine has swung into high gear promoting West Nile disease. It’s a “national outbreak.” 1138 cases in 38 states. 41 deaths. Planes are spraying toxic aerial pesticides.
Never mind that the US Centers for Disease Control claims 36,000 people die every year from ordinary seasonal flu—and there are no announcements of an “epidemic” or an “outbreak.”
Never mind that the World Health Organization (WHO) claims between 250,000 and 500,000 people die every year from ordinary seasonal flu—and this isn’t called an “epidemic” or an “outbreak.”
If you added up the death count from all the hyped and predicted epidemics of the last decade, including West Nile, SARS, bird flu, weaponized smallpox, and Swine Flu, the total would come to about one year of deaths in the US from ordinary flu.
But who cares about facts? What’s important is how much fear can be generated. That’s the statistic that counts, when you’re talking about the CDC or WHO.
And when it comes to the public, it seems that some people feel a morbid attraction for viruses. Every time a new one is announced, they rub their hands together and say, “This is the big one! It’s going to spread like wildfire!”
Other people, involved in natural health, who reject huge amounts conventional medical wisdom, nonetheless make the mistake of buying the virus of the moment. They automatically accept it as real and then figure out how to treat it naturally. That can be a big mistake.
Have researchers ever actually isolated (found) the West Nile virus? You should be asking that question.
You should always question what the CDC tells you.
The deepest form of medical-research chicanery comes when scientists claim they’ve found a new virus and they haven’t. They haven’t nailed it down. They say they have, but that’s not true.
People have a hard time fathoming this. They will accept the fact that a medical drug touted as miraculous really causes heart attacks, strokes, and death, but for some reason The Virus is sacred territory. “Scientists would never lie about that.” Really? Why not?
Do you think discovering a new virus is like dipping a tweezer into a dish of liquid and picking out a little critter who is shaking his legs? And therefore, nobody can lie about it, because it’s either there or not? No, that’s not the way it works.
A new virus is discovered by taking a tissue sample suspected of harboring it; then that sample must be transferred to a fine filter that will trap the virus. That’s how the initial all-important isolation process is begun.
In the case of West Nile, this was attempted in 1999. It was called a success, but there was a major problem. As I stated in a previous article:
Researchers claim the West Nile virus is 0.04 micrometers. At the same time, they admit that the original fishing expedition for the virus employed filters that were 0.22 micrometers. The obvious conclusion? The filter was too porous. It was nearly six times larger than the virus.
In fact, Robert McLean, director of the National Wildlife Center of the US Geological Survey, told ABC’s Nick Regush, “We don’t have a purified form of the [West Nile] virus.”
A stunning admission.
The late ABC reporter, Regush, followed up on McLean’s pronouncement with this: “I find no evidence anywhere in the scientific literature that the rules of virus purification and isolation were thoroughly followed [in the case of the West Nile virus].”
People respond to these assertions with an accusatory tone: “Then what’s making people sick? Why are people dying?”
People getting sick and dying doesn’t necessarily have a connection to why health authorities are telling you they’re dying.
If a newspaper reported that a hurricane in Missouri killed 12 people, and then you discovered there had been no hurricane, would you insist on pretending there was, because 12 people died? No, of course not. You would assume the people died for other reasons.
It’s the same situation with West Nile. People get sick and die all the time. If the virus that supposedly is causing an outbreak of illness has never been found, you look for other causes.
Again, from my previous article:
There are some good reasons people in the Dallas area are getting sick. These reasons have nothing to do with “West Nile.”
A decade ago, independent journalist, Jim West, launched an original investigation into the so-called “West Nile epidemic” in New York City.
West correlated clusters of human and bird “West Nile” cases with several factors; among them, nearby polluting oil refineries, other air pollution (certainly exacerbated by hot summer weather), and the presence of toxic MTBE, an additive that makes gasoline in cars burn cleaner.
There are listings for at least eight refineries in the Dallas area. There are also reports of increased air pollution coming from natural gas production in the Barnett Shale. The 2012 summer has been hot. As of of the year 2000, Texas refineries were producing 75% of all the MTBE in the United States.
And since this has been a very hot and dry summer in other areas of the US, high-air-pollution locales have intensified.
Am I saying that the never-isolated “West Nile virus” might be functioning as a cover story, to conceal what is really making people sick? Absolutely.
As an illustration, the medical history of the African continent is replete with such cover stories. Over and over, germs have been heralded as the cause of people dying in great numbers.
Centuries-old causes of ongoing death in Africa were intentionally overlooked: contaminated water supplies; horrible sanitation; overcrowding; generation-to-generation malnutrition and starvation; stolen farm land.
Most Americans automatically assume the arrival of western doctors with drugs and vaccines is a good sign for Africa. Nothing could be further from the truth. The doctors are sent there to cover up the truth.
Why? Because many interested parties, powerful players inside and outside of Africa, want the true and persisting causes of illness and death to remain, in order to keep the population weak and controllable. It’s easy to hide this agenda by advertising a fake disease-cause and a fake medical remedy. Medical intervention will never cure what’s ailing Africa. If you walked through a swamp of filthy contaminated water every day on your way to work, do you think a course of antibiotics would keep you healthy?
Here in America, when various toxic environmental causes of illness bring people down, there needs to be a cover story as well. The most believable cover is The Virus. It works. People stand up and salute it. They’re saluting it now in Dallas and other places.
I don’t care how many pictures of how many mosquitoes are adorning television screens and newspapers. “Oh, the mosquito carries the West Nile virus!” Really? Even if no one ever found such a virus?
Buy the virus story if you want to. Everyone has that freedom. But science is supposed to be about proof, and in the case of West Nile, it’s all supposition and presumption and lying.
The medical PR machine will grind on. New stories will appear. “The worst summer ever.” “New deaths from West Nile.” “More mosquitoes carrying the deadly West Nile virus found.” “The very young and elderly at greatest risk.” “Medical experts try to discover why West Nile returned with a fury.”
How many people will give in at each new barrage of propaganda and accept the virus story?
Remember Swine Flu? The whole planet was going to go down. In the end, WHO announced the total global death figure as 20,000. Then, in a mindless burst of revisionism this year, the total was changed to 580,000.
Here’s a number for you. Three maniacal spokespeople from the CDC, backed by five major television networks, can brainwash the public about a virus in seven days.
