Zika: Who launched the fake-epidemic story in Brazil?

Zika: Who launched the fake-epidemic story in Brazil?

Explosive: The invention of an epidemic

by Jon Rappoport

February 7, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

This is an article that explains a great deal—but, with apologies, it involves a line of reasoning, in order to reach a conclusion. That means some readers (not my regular readers) may find it odd. Some readers with short attention spans may suddenly want to switch to a wrestling show or a shopping network. To them I say: give this a try; it does have a payoff; it has its own kind of shock and surprise; explosions do go off in the mind; it is like a ten-car pile-up on the interstate in the fog, late at night; and there is a very nasty plot.

Out of nowhere, a month ago, we were told there was an outbreak of microcephaly in Brazil: over 4,000 cases of babies born with small heads and brain impairment.

The Brazilian researchers then went in and took a closer look at that figure. They walked it back and said there were, at best, only 404 confirmed cases of microcephaly.

Going from 4,000 cases to 404 cases was a revelation. It means there is no reason to claim, so far, that there is an epidemic of microcephaly.

Then, another stunner. Of the 404 cases, only 17 “had a relationship with the Zika virus.” Therefore, obviously, there was no Zika-causing-microcephaly story, either.

Even in those 17 cases, the mere presence of the Zika virus was no evidence the virus was causing microcephaly in 17 babies. A virus has to be more than “present.” It has to be there in huge numbers in an individual human. And the Brazilian researchers haven’t provided any evidence that Zika was present in huge numbers in any of the 17 babies.

There is more. The whole effort of the researchers was to show, if possible, that Zika was present in all the 404 microcephaly cases. You see, they were doing preliminary work. They were looking for the cause of microcephaly. And when you’re on that kind of hunt, you’re trying to find some factor that is present in most or all cases. Otherwise, it’s not the cause.

The Zika hunting expedition failed miserably. The researchers actually showed that Zika wasn’t the cause.

Let me put it to you this way. 400 tourists staying a hotel fall ill with the same symptoms. Researchers try to find the cause. They propose, as a preliminary idea, that the tourists all ate apple sauce. So they interview the sick tourists, they examine the contents of their stomachs, they talk to kitchen workers—and they discover only 17 of the 400 tourists ate apple sauce. Conclusion? Apple sauce is not the cause of the illness. There is no reason to claim it’s the cause in the 17 people who ate it, either. Apple sauce, as an explanation, is a complete dud.

All right. So we have no evidence that there is a widespread epidemic of microcephaly. And for those cases that do exist, we have no evidence, so far, that Zika virus is the cause.

Given all this, a few new questions naturally arise. How did the notion that Zika virus might be the cause suddenly appear in the first place? And who started the story that there was an epidemic of microcephaly?

Let me take up that second question. Apparently, several doctors at two or three hospitals in Brazil noticed more babies with microcephaly than usual. Their report went to someone at the Brazilian health authority. And then a call went out all over the country asking for reports of cases of microcephaly. Those reports came in. They weren’t necessarily accurate. When the numbers were added up, they came to more than 4000.

Then, researchers began to sift through 3,670 of those reports to see what was actually happening—and so far, they see only 404 cases of microcephaly.

Now let’s look at the first question: who proposed the apple sauce? Who proposed the idea that Zika, a virus known about since 1947, a virus which had never been known to cause more than mild transient illness, a virus surely present in humans all over the planet, was now suddenly wreaking great devastation in babies—deformity, brain damage? Who made that very strange leap?

Here is a clue.

This is a quote from a World Health Organization press release, dated January 28, 2016: “WHO to convene an International Health Regulations Emergency Committee on Zika virus and observed increase in neurological disorders and neonatal malformations”:

“In May 2015, Brazil reported its first case of Zika virus disease. Since then, the disease has spread within Brazil and to 24 other countries in the region.”

This is clearly a deception. The first Zika case in Brazil, for a virus that’s been known about since 1947? In India, Zika has been known about (“Zika Fever”) for a long, long time. Discovering “the first” Zika case in Brazil has some special meaning? As I stated above, it’s well known that the virus causes only mild illness and goes away in a short time. So why would anyone care about a Zika case in Brazil? As for the WHO assertion that Zika has subsequently spread (like an epidemic) throughout Brazil and 24 other countries, this is absurd. It would be like saying, “We discovered a person driving a Volkswagen in Brazil. Since then, the occurrence of people driving Volkswagens had spread across Brazil and 24 other countries.” No, the drivers and the Volkswagens were already there.

Why would researchers at WHO make this fundamental error? Why would they make this preposterous claim?

Part of the reason leads back to a preoccupation with (actually, an obsession with) hunting for viruses. Hunting for them, finding them, and then, based on no solid evidence, claiming they cause various disease-conditions.

I’ll continue with a further quote from the January 28 WHO media release:

“Arrival of the virus in some countries of the Americas, notably Brazil, has been associated with a steep increase in the birth of babies with abnormally small heads… A causal relationship between Zika virus infection and birth defects and neurological syndromes has not been established, but is strongly suspected.”

Notice the use of the phrase, “associated with.” This is not true, as we’ve seen, because the Brazilian researchers have found the Zika virus (or indirect evidence of it) in only 17 of the 404 confirmed cases of microcephaly. There is no association. There is disassociation. Remember, in order to begin to say a particular virus is causing a disease, you must find it in almost all, or all, cases of that condition. What WHO is pointing to, re Zika, doesn’t even begin to approach this standard. And as you can see from the above quote, WHO admits they have established no causal connection between Zika and microcephaly.

Yet WHO has been spearheading the drive to blame Zika and, yes, invent the idea that there is a “spreading epidemic” of Zika. Much of what you’re reading and seeing in the mainstream press about this “epidemic” comes directly out of WHO press releases and director Margaret Chan’s remarks.

WHO is determined to fabricate a viral epidemic and its causal connection to microcephaly.

Here is the final quote I want to highlight from the January 28 WHO media release:

“WHO’s Regional Office for the Americas (PAHO) has been working closely with affected countries since May 2015. PAHO has mobilized staff and members of the Global Outbreak and Response Network (GOARN) to assist ministries of health in strengthening their abilities to detect the arrival and circulation of Zika virus through laboratory testing and rapid reporting. The aim has been to ensure accurate clinical diagnosis and treatment for patients, to track the spread of the virus and the mosquito that carries it, and to promote prevention, especially through mosquito control.”

Notice the date mentioned in the quote—May 2015. That’s when “the first case of Zika” was discovered in Brazil. WHO sent people to the scene immediately. They sent their virus hunters from GOARN, which is the WHO equivalent of the CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS). The virus hunters. Show them a situation; they will find a virus and make an warranted claim about it and push the story forward.

That’s what they’ve done, against all the counter-evidence. They’ve invented a epidemic that doesn’t exist, blaming it on a virus that has never caused serious illness, and they’ve connected that virus, with no evidence, to microcephaly.

It would be like saying, “There was a 20-car crash on the interstate last night, and three miles away, on a lonely road, a boy was walking with his dog. The boy is the prime suspect. He is ‘associated’ with the car crash. And then, on top of that absurdity, we discover that, on the interstate, we can only find two cars that have collided, not 20.”

But the biggest public-health agency in the world is sticking to its story about the 20-car crash and its “association” with the boy walking his dog.

This does not indicate a mere error. This indicates a fixation. “We must find a virus and claim it is the cause.” It also indicates an intention to fabricate.

All right. We’ve now reached the end of the first part of my argument. Let’s proceed and go to motive.

For that exposition, I rely on the very well-known consequences of WHO making its entirely unwarranted and bogus case: an epidemic can be announced. They (WHO) can claim there is an epidemic caused by a spreading virus.

Follow me here. This is crucial. Merely saying there are some microcephaly cases in Brazil, and they can come from many different causes—since any insult to the developing fetal brain can bring about microcephaly—a toxic drug, a toxic pesticide, the pregnant woman falls down a flight of stairs—merely saying there are some microcephaly cases in Brazil creates no appearance of a contagious epidemic spreading around the world.

For WHO, that’s a non-starter. It goes nowhere. But linking microcephaly to a virus and then “discovering” the virus has “broken out” of its “previous containment in Brazil” and is “traveling around the world” and is “causing microcephaly”—-now WHO is in business.

Constructing these several garish lies and hooking them together achieves multiple objectives. The people at WHO may be crazy, but they aren’t stupid. They understand how much hay they can make through their invention.

With the fairy tale about a galloping virus and its potential to create, in any pregnant woman, brain damage to her developing baby, they have a scary epidemic to run and manage and control. They have work, in the same way a movie director has work with a good script that can sell vs. one that won’t. Their allies can rush to develop a (completely unnecessary) vaccine. When the vaccine is ready (ready to make large profits), WHO can run that operation, too, by issuing all sorts of alerts about the need to get vaccinated. WHO can also issue “health directives” about “prevention” to every national government on Earth, thus cementing its superior role as a leading planetary command-post.


power outside the matrix


In past articles, I’ve examined destructive agendas coalescing around multiple factors: toxic vaccines; the promotion and induction of illness; “the virus” as a cover story invoked to protect, for example, mega-corporations that poison populations with pesticides; the in-utero-to-cradle-to-grave system of toxic medical care, and so on. In this article, I just want to show how the invention of an epidemic occurs, how it’s done. How it’s put together.

This is one aspect of the medical Matrix right in front of your eyes: the twisting and curling and distorting and forcing of disparate data into one coordinated scenario that, on analysis, completely falls apart.

Let me give it to you in one boiled-down imaginary quote:

“Okay, boys, this is what we have. Some cases of microcephaly in Brazil. Not many confirmed cases. So, first thing, we have to blow that number up. Get rolling on that. Next, we have this harmless dud of a virus, Zika, which we can find in all sorts of people anywhere in the world. It means nothing, of course, but we’re going to make it mean something. We’re going to claim it causes microcephaly. Wow. Even I’m blown away by the sheer audacity of that. Once we make this spurious connection, we can say women all over the planet are at risk. We can say the virus is spreading and we can confirm that through testing— because, as we know, it’s already there. It’s been there forever. Anywhere. Everywhere. And we say, you see, this virus that causes a horrible birth defect is spreading and popping up in a dozen, 20, 40, 70 countries. Now we’re in business. We potentially have the fight-or-flight mechanism of the whole planet under our control. That’s our goal. Let’s get to work and see how far we can take this Good Battles Evil fairy tale. Remember, we’re the Good. People need to be controlled. Otherwise, who knows what they might do? We do the controlling.”

Indeed.

Magic, history, and the inventions of the individual

Magic, history, and the inventions of the individual

by Jon Rappoport

February 6, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

What follows are notes I made prior to putting together my second collection, Exit From The Matrix. The whole point of that collection was to provide numerous exercises a person could do on a daily basis—exercises which would reveal and expand his latent power to create reality.

“Reality is invented. It isn’t just ‘there.’”

“There is the study of the past; then there is the obsession with the past; and finally, the blithe acceptance of the past as that thing which molds the individual and makes him what he is. The third preoccupation is by far the most injurious. The sting of its injection is never felt. The fluid enters the bloodstream and paralyzes the mind one gradual degree at a time. The result is an addict who considers himself highly sensible and realistic and comfortable.”

“As long as the concept of The Individual lasts in society, before it disappears under a bulbous landfill of psychological spin and academic garbage, the official approach is placing him, the individual, in a context, a tradition, a historical time line, in order to make sure he believes he is reacting to the forces around him and the history prior to him. In this way, the individual is never seen to invent anything; he is at best responding to ‘the problems of his time.”

“Even when the idea of magic is somehow connected to individual freedom and power, we are referred to older studies and systems of magic, as if the past is the only place we can visit to understand what the individual is capable of. This is absolute nonsense.”

“Rejecting ‘the individual as an artifact of history and tradition’ is like stepping off a speeding train and floating upward, where one can view, below, a giant machine spooling out the insanity known as social sciences. The machine concocts reports of tribes, clans, nations, religions, customs, rules, dogmas, which supposedly describe thousands of years of human experience. Floating free, one can see these trillions of data are tinged with the attitude that the individual has never been vitally important. The machine is making that argument.”

“Here is a proposition for you: ‘If magic, in any interpretation of that word, exists, a person must find it in the past.’ This is like saying a person must move around in a wheelchair, in order to understand his power.”

“What the individual invents and creates makes history, makes new space and time. This isn’t just magic; it is THE magic.”

“When you listen to a symphony, you experience a different space and time continuum. You see it, feel it, inhabit it. It’s easy to say that continuum isn’t real, but it is. If it were somehow removed from your experience, the symphony would come across to you in an entirely different way. A shrunken dilapidated way.”

“The study of symbology conveniently forgets that all symbols are, originally, inventions. They don’t intrinsically mean anything. Every symbol and its meaning was first invented by an individual, not a group.”

“The individual isn’t the end-point of time. He creates time. But this statement is true at a level most people don’t want to explore. They prefer to believe they are fitting into a system that has already been prepared for them. This is like believing all meals just show up at the table, rather than considering the possibility of cooking meals in the kitchen one’s self.”

What has been called The Matrix is a series of layers. These layers compose what we call Reality. Reality is not merely the consensus people accept in their daily lives. It is also a personal and individual conception of limits. It is a perception that these limits are somehow built into existence. But this is not true.

What I’ve done here is remove the lid on those perceived limits. This isn’t an intellectual undertaking. It’s a way to open up space and step on to a new road.

That road travels to more and more creative power, joy, and fulfillment.

During that great adventure, the individual experiences what has been labeled “paranormal” and “synchronistic” and “magical.” These words really don’t do us justice. They only hint at what we are and what we can do.

I put this collection together because it expresses, explains, and shows, in detail, how the individual can rediscover and reclaim his/her true power.

That process, that engagement, that life is beyond solving problems. Our problems, at the core, exist only because we have “misplaced an infinity.”

Everything I’ve done and written in the past 20 years has been aimed, one way or another, at bringing back that infinity, seeing through the layers of disguise, and moving ahead on the sunlit road we all desire.

This collection is for you, for me, for all of us.

We have, each one of us, an infinite life, lived in a world that is convinced it is bounded.

It’s time we dissolved that false contradiction.

Zika freaka 2: spraying plane cabins, robot reporters

Zika freaka 2: spraying plane cabins, robot reporters

Another episode in my ongoing series, Science from Habitual Liars

by Jon Rappoport

February 5, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

Part 1: the planes

Bloomberg News, February 4, “U.K. to Spray Planes on Routes From Zika-Affected Countries”:

“The U.K. is to order airlines flying from countries affected by the Zika virus, which has been linked with birth defects, to spray insecticide inside plane cabins.”

Step up and get your insecticides right in the face. Board a plane flying out of any “Zika-infected” country heading for the UK, and you can inhale toxic fumes in the comfort of your own enclosed cabin. Watch any disoriented mosquitoes who might be accompanying your flight drop to the carpet, squirm, and die. More entertaining than a movie on that annoying tiny screen. And you can experience the thrill of skin-rash, nausea, dizziness, fainting. Hey, pay the ticket, take the ride. It’s a party.

Who knows? Flights out of Texas (where they’ve “discovered” one Zika case) might be next. Never underestimate the American penchant for toxic chemicals.

Why not conduct flights over the whole country of Brazil and expel millions of tons of killer compounds, in order to wipe out the virus that doesn’t cause anything: Zika.

Just to give you a flavor of the passenger-plane experience, here’s a quick bite from a 2001 USA Today story, “Fliers fume over planes treated with pesticides” (published on 9/10/2001 to be exact). In that case, the spraying was “generic,” done to kill any stray insects that might be in the cabin:

“As the United Airlines jet winged home from Sydney last year, Sharon Dorazio’s eyes started to burn and her stomach ached. The pain became unbearable. ‘I have never been so sick, so quick,’ she says. Her two grandsons, ages 13 and 14, complained of burning skin, itching eyes and loss of appetite. Sharon’s husband, Richard, a surgeon, was confounded.

“Then a flight attendant confided in them. Others were ill on the flight, the attendant said, and the crew believed the cause was the spraying of long-lasting pesticides in the cabin interior before passengers boarded.”

Delicious, and nutritious, too.

In this current and ever-expanding Zika hysteria, I’ve put to rest any evidence that the virus is causing microcephaly (babies born with small heads and brain damage). Researchers in Brazil have gone back in and examined the original reports. The result? They find, so far, only 404 confirmed cases of microcephaly in the whole country (not 4,180 as originally claimed), and of those 404, only 17 “have a relationship” to the Zika virus. They’ve got nothing. No epidemic, no viral cause.

But spray those plane cabins, by all means. Can’t be too cautious. Why not sell haz-mat suits to the passengers?

Again, watch for this to come to the US and other countries.

Part 2: robot reporters

Stories are beginning to appear in the semi-mainstream press about “conspiracists” who are “pushing alternative theories” to explain the “Zika epidemic.” This happens whenever a new dud epidemic arises. It’s becoming a cottage industry.

Of course, these so-called reporters wouldn’t recognize fake science if you buried them up to their necks in it. They would die for lies, if the lies came from the CDC or the World Health Organization. Some of these “journalists” live in mommy’s basement, which they consider outposts of public health and medical truth. (I omit their names for the moment—they can earn their own publicity.)

Their basic point is: mere (unwarranted) suspicion of an outbreak is sufficient to justify any action medical cops want to take. Don’t travel here. Don’t get pregnant. Don’t breastfeed. Consider an abortion. Spray yourself with a toxic chemical. Take this vaccine. Spend your vacation in a hotel room. Be afraid. Comply with any new orders coming down the pipeline. If you live in Brazil, feel free to walks the streets as agents of the State and fumigate the area with (more) toxic chemicals. Spray the inside of your house with (more) toxic chemicals 200,000 Brazilian troops are handing-out door-to-door. Whatever. The people in charge of the science and the research know what they’re doing.

Of course they do. That’s why the original 4,180 cases of microcephaly in Brazil are now 404, and that’s why the Zika virus as the cause is so far from established that it’s actually evidence that Zika doesn’t cause anything.

I’ve been working as a reporter for 30 years, and I know the robot type. Aside from their droning voices and the externally triggered controls located at the backs of their necks, they exhibit a stunning passivity when confronted with actual facts which explode propaganda ops. They just stand there staring at nothing, as if nothing has happened. They’re programmed to enter a blank moment. Then they come back and pursue their original scuzzbucket path. They pick up from where they left off. It’s remarkable.

Now, that is an epidemic. Many of these machine creatures roam the landscape. I would say they’re psychopathic, but they don’t rise to that level. Their mean streak is thin, reedy, remote. It’s difficult to believe they were born to human mothers. Rather, they just popped up in the sixth grade and started faintly smirking. But they’re humanitarians. Of course they are. Meaning they want to reduce all people to “units of concern” on the chessboard.


exit from the matrix


When you step in, reach around, and turn off those controls at the backs of their necks, they begin to fade. They dissolve and disappear. Somewhere, in a secret records office, they’re listed as missing agents of the consensus.

John Smith is gone. Another John Smith shows up the next day.

A virologist at the World Health Organization says a new germ called Doofacoccus is infecting 30 people in Kalamazoo and it’s the new epidemic and the new Smith rolls up and punches out a story for his press outlet.

It’s seamless. Until you take it apart and see that it’s made by robots for robots.

Anti-logic: the education plague

Anti-logic: the education plague

by Jon Rappoport

February 5, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

In all times and places, logic is never taught to the masses. There is no intention to do so.

Now, in our “egalitarian society,” education carries with it great PR pretension, a fakery that outflanks any other period in history.

Therefore, graduating students wrongly believe they know how to think.

In my latest collection, Power Outside The Matrix, I include a long audio tutorial, Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation, which is all about carrying out deep investigations of major official scenarios/stories, and discovering how and where these official structures can be penetrated, taken apart, and unfolded, so all their flaws and deceptions are exposed.

This training is meant to remedy the deep hole people find themselves in, when they go up against entrenched (or even alternative) “knowledge.”

For example, there is a particular logical fallacy I call: “this means that.”

It runs rampant throughout society. The fallacy bleeds into the reasoning process, into notions of self-worth, into people’s need to identify themselves with an “acceptable” position.

Take the concept of manmade global warming. For many people, affirming this as a reality means:

“I’m defending the sacred quality of life on Earth, I’m helping the planet, I’m exposing the nasty crimes of big corporations, I’m acknowledging and shining a spotlight on the selfish and petty actions of the masses, I’m in the vanguard of recognizing that this issue represents the greatest threat humankind has ever known, I’m transcending ‘profits over values’, I’m envisioning with others a better world, I’m aligning myself with the best international scientific minds, I’m experiencing the sensation of having a larger mission in life.”

This—manmade global warming—means all that.

Therefore, how do you approach rational discourse on the subject of manmade warming?

You don’t.

There is no logic to be found. There is only “this means that.”

The concept or idea or symbol of manmade warming is so fully packed with sentiment, it resists all attempts at entry.

Here is another example: “America must field a powerful military force all over the world.”

For many people this means: “US wars are good and righteous wars, support our troops, admire the representations of war in sports, praise large American corporations, vote for a ‘tough President’, winning is everything, expand the Pentagon budget, develop a kick-ass attitude, love technology in all forms and degrees, obey and agree with institutional authority, assume that bigger is always better.”

“This means that.”

Therefore, a rational discussion about the wisdom of deploying the US military all over the planet is impossible. The amount of packed sentiment is a suit of body and mind armor.

In the case of manmade warming, examining the science behind the hypothesis becomes completely irrelevant. To even begin to look at it feels like an act of betrayal to the person who has “this means that” firmly in place.

Nothing in the person’s education has ever challenged his reflexive hard-wired “this-that” formulation. A breakthrough has never been made in the area of logic.

Instead, education has, at best, skated across the surface of “this means that” and left it undisturbed.

With some degree of accuracy, one could say that all the other traditional logical fallacies—ad hominem attack, straw man, vague generality, circular reasoning, appeal to authority, etc.—spring from “this means that.”

When I attended college in the 1950s, it was my good fortune to have a logic professor who could analyze and separate a thousand angels dancing on the head of a pin—and at the same time, maintain his great and natural charm and sense of humor.

Our conversations outside of class were moments of excitement. They were also rugged mind workouts.

His parting shot to me, as I was about to graduate: “Know what you don’t know.”

Some 20 years later, when I began a career as a reporter, that piece of advice came back to me.

I was prepared to do investigations, because I could make assessments of what I didn’t know and therefore needed to find out.

I could evaluate sources, who would often try to deploy logical flaws to derail me.

One of the great delights of reporting is discovering that the story you’re working on isn’t the story. The story turns out to be something else entirely.

That was the case in 1987, when I got down to writing my first book, AIDS Inc (note: AIDS Inc is included as bonus in Power Outside The Matrix). People were coming at me from every direction, feeding me their half-baked theories about what AIDS “really was.”

They seemed to believe that, because they were departing from the conventional wisdom on the subject, they must be right.

Encountering that odd notion of self-entitlement stood me in good stead, from that time forward.

When I eventually arrived at the bottom of the AIDS story, I was shocked to see it wasn’t at all what I predicted it would be.

It’s astounding how many logical steps people are willing to skip over, when they have a “this means that” cooking in their heads.

Like a foreign traveler visiting a bizarre museum, I’ve encountered many varieties of sophistry over the past 30 years.

Logic isn’t the be-all and end-all. But it is, in the largest sense, an ever-expanding method you can use to probe deeper and deeper into an argument, a line of reasoning, and engage with the basic assumptions that underlie a position a person is occupying.

It’s as if you’re learning a story backwards, moving toward the beginning, where all the secrets are.

And chances are good that you will eventually encounter some form of the abiding “this means that,” hiding like a horned toad under a bush.

He’s there, he’s quiet, he’s waiting, and when you turn a branch away from a shadow, he stares at you and you know you’ve arrived at the nexus:

the unyielding stubborn source of confusion and illogic.

And sometimes, on good days, you can get the horned toad to tell his story. His real story. All the way through. And you can see him regain his lost sanity.

That’s an experience not to be missed. You’ll remember it for your whole life.

Zika: update from Brazil: towering non-evidence

Zika: update from Brazil: towering non-evidence

by Jon Rappoport

February 4, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

I can now provide the latest update on what researchers in Brazil are discovering, as they dig into their original findings about the Zika virus and cases of microcephaly (babies born with small heads and brain impairment).

A correspondent has offered a translation of an article that appeared in one of the major Sao Paulo newspapers, O Estado de São Paulo, on February 2nd, “País tem 404 casos confirmados de microcefalia”:

It is obvious that no significant connection between microcephaly and the Zika virus has been found. It’s not even close. So far, therefore, there is absolutely no reason to trumpet an epidemic of Zika. Doing so is quite insane, by any reasonable standard.

Here are the principal facts in the article (after which I’ll comment):

* As of January 30, 2016, 4,783 suspected cases of microcephaly were reported in Brazil.

* Of those, 3,670 suspected cases of microcephaly, covering the entire country of Brazil, are being investigated.

* Of those 3,670, 404 cases have been confirmed as microcephaly or “other alterations in the central nervous system” of babies.

* Of those 404 cases, 17 “had a relationship with zika virus.”

* 98% of the 404 microcephaly cases come from the Northeast area of Brazil, and in that area, Pernambuco has the highest number of cases: 56.


Now, let’s take each one of these reported facts and examine it.

First: 4,783 suspected cases of microcephaly in Brazil. “Suspected” is the operative word. This number means nothing, because it says nothing about confirmation. It’s just a raw figure.

3,670 of these cases are being researched.

Of these 3,670, 404 have been confirmed as microcephaly or other alterations in the central nervous system of the babies. The key word here is “or.” The researchers don’t know how many of the 404 babies have microcephaly. At the very most, it would be 404. 404 cases of microcephaly in the whole country of Brazil, so far. That is not an epidemic. For example, every year in the US, there are 25,000 cases of microcephaly. And the literature is very clear about causes: any insult to the fetal brain during pregnancy can result in microcephaly. Severe malnutrition, falling down stairs, a blow to the stomach, a toxic street drug or medical drug or vaccine or pesticide, and so on.

Of these 404 cases of (possible) microcephaly in Brazil, 17 babies have been found who “have a relationship with the Zika virus.” It’s hard to be more vague. But for the sake of argument, let’s say that in each of the 17, with a correct test done properly, the Zika virus was isolated. This finding does not even remotely approach proof that Zika is causing microcephaly. It’s miles away from proof. Any honest researcher will tell you that. If Zika were the cause, researchers should have been able to find it in the overwhelming majority of the 404 babies. 17 out of 404 is, in fact, major evidence that Zika is not the cause.

98% of the 404 (possible) microcephaly cases come from the Northeast region of Brazil. Before jumping to any conclusions, realize that standards on reporting such cases differ from region to region. Up until now, there was no national focus on microcephaly. So there may be other cases from other regions. As for the 56 cases in Pernambuco, understand that the population of this area is 9.27 million people. It is significant to note that commercial agriculture is widespread in Pernambuco, and agriculture means toxic pesticides—an important causal factor in microcephaly, as I’ve detailed in other articles.


power outside the matrix


To sum up, researchers so far have found 404 cases of microcephaly in Brazil, and who knows how many of those are actually some other kind of nervous-system impairment. And of those 404 babies, they have found, at best, 17 cases where the Zika virus was present.

And this is the epidemic that is shaking the world.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is spearheading the baseless propaganda and the hysteria. At the very least, hundreds of employees from WHO should be immediately fired from their jobs, if not jailed.

Zika: Jon Levine of mic.com interviews me

Zika: Jon Levine of mic.com interviews me

by Jon Rappoport

February 4, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

I now have a strategy when any member of the press who could be considered “mainstream” or “almost mainstream” interviews me. I’m interviewing them, too, at the same time.

Then, when they publish something, people can see the difference between their account and mine. I like it.

I’m noting what they say to me and how they’re approaching me and the issue at hand—and I’m writing about it afterwards.

So I get an email from Jon Levine at mic.com (Jon Levine’s mic.com profile here) (mic.com’s twitter feed is here). He wants to talk to me about possible alternative explanations re Zika, or some such, he leaves a number, and I call him.

He expresses some interest in one of my Zika articles he read at Activist Post, and asks me a question. Wait, I say, is this on the record? (I thought we were just chatting or this was for background only.) Yes, he says, now, it’s on the record. Are you interviewing me? I ask. Yes, he says. Not my favorite way to begin an interview.

I figure, what the hell, so I give him an earful. I cite the latest figures out of Brazil, the center of the Zika-microcephaly “crisis.” 404 confirmed cases of microcephaly (or possibly some other kind of non-microcephaly nervous-system impairment), and of those 404 cases, only 17 “with a relationship to the Zika virus,” whatever the hell that means. In other words, zero science proving there is either a microcephaly epidemic or that Zika has anything to do with it. I hammer on this for a while with him. I want him to get the point.

He asks me why I think all this press coverage of the “outbreak” is happening, or maybe he asks me what other explanation there could be for the cases of microcephaly, or something like this—can’t remember—I didn’t take notes—and I say I’m not going there. I don’t want his readers to focus on some alternative scenario, I want them to focus on the science, of which there is none.

I keep pounding on the latest figures out of Brazil, I do mention corporations that need to be protected down there as they spew toxic pesticides all over the landscape—and, for example, atrazine has been linked to microcephaly.

I hit the World Health Organization for fomenting all this hysteria based on no science, but instead relying on “suspicion” and fear of “not acting soon enough,” which was, they say, a problem in the Ebola “outbreak.” He says something like, well, doesn’t “over-caution” (my term) make sense? And I fling around a few expletives and say no, it makes no sense at all, because there is no indication of an epidemic or the involvement of Zika—and the burden of proof is on the people who launched the announcement of the “epidemic” in the first place.

I tell him I’ve been around the block on these so-called epidemics before, and he asks for an example (of a phony epidemic), and I tell him: Swine Flu.

I then recount the whole Sharyl Attkisson-CBS story about how she discovered, at the height of the Swine Flu hysteria, that the CDC had stopped counting cases in America, and that was because the overwhelming numbers of blood samples from diagnosed Swine Flu patients and the most likely Swine flu cases were coming back from the labs with no sign of Swine Flu or any flu—and that story, by Sharyl, was put up on the CBS News website, and her editor told her it was the most original story on Swine Flu he’d seen—but when they tried to get the story on the network evening news, it was suddenly shot down, and that was that. And then I added my own piece: a few weeks later, the CDC, doubling and tripling down, estimated there were 22 MILLION cases of Swine Flu in America (which even by CDC standards for telling lies wall to wall had to rank up there among their greatest bullshit hits).

I didn’t get much of a reaction from Jon Levine of mic.com. All through the interview, he suppressed, or never had, a surprised reaction to any of my comments. I suppose this is a fine example of journalistic objectivity.

I told him there was no way he could take the actual facts about Zika-microcephaly and write them straight out for his news outlet and expose the entire scam and get the story published. It wouldn’t happen. If it did, his reputation would take a serious hit. I think I mentioned that I knew that and that he knew that, too.


power outside the matrix


That was pretty much that. So let’s see what happens. Let’s see if he publishes a Zika piece at mic.com. If he does, let’s see if he mentions the interview, and how, and in what context. Let’s see what he does with it. Let’s see if he or anyone else at mic.com goes to the CDC or WHO for a comment or, God forbid, actually digs into this insane scandal. Let’s see. Keep your eyes open. If a piece does appear, let me know. My interview with Jon Levine took place on Thurs. Feb. 4.

If I were in Vegas and could lay down money on the outcome, I think you know which way I’d go. But that’s just me.

Zika: vicious fraud: abortions at sea: the war on women

Zika: vicious fraud: abortions at sea: the war on women

by Jon Rappoport

February 4, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

You’re a pregnant woman in Central America. You’ve just been told you could have the Zika virus. No tests. No confirmation. And of course, no one is telling you that Zika has not been proved to cause anything. But you’re offered an abortion at sea, because the country you live in doesn’t allow abortions, except in very restricted cases. A group will take you out on a ship, and when you come back your baby will be gone. He or she will never be born. You’re just another casualty in the campaign to provoke fear, but now it has been your very personal experience.

February 3, 2016. Vocative.com has the story, “Pregnant Zika victims will be given access to abortions at sea”:

“Now Women on Waves, an organization which uses ships to offer safe abortion services outside the territorial waters of countries where the procedure is restricted or forbidden, has announced that they will begin serving areas affected by Zika.”

“Women on Waves is aiming to give them [pregnant women] a safe, legal alternative. They will provide medical abortions to pregnant women who have Zika in Colombia, Bolivia, Chile, Guadeloupe, Paraguay, Venezuela, Argentina, Surinam, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Panama, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic. Eligible women must be less than 9 weeks pregnant and are required to fill out an online application to receive the abortifacient drugs. The group has said getting a shipment of the medicine to patients can take between one and five weeks, meaning it will require a woman who discovers she’s pregnant to act very quickly to receive help in time.”

As I’ve detailed in previous articles, the original propaganda which launched the whole Zika-birth defect hysteria, has been contradicted by Brazilian researchers who’ve gone back and rechecked the findings. They’ve found far, far fewer cases of the birth defect, microcephaly, and only a handful of cases where the Zika virus was present.

But this hasn’t stopped the fear mongers. And now we have abortions at sea, based on zero truth and zero science.

Put this together with the travel warnings governments have been issuing to women, and the advisories (“don’t get pregnant for two years”), and this is turning out to be a war against women.

Depopulation by press conference.

Who will be held responsible? No one.

Unless people begin to speak out and ignore the roar of the press and the lying public health agencies.

The abortions will continue. Pregnant women will never know the truth, that the loss of their children was created by propaganda.


power outside the matrix


Margaret Chan, the director of the World Health Organization, has admitted that the causal connection between microcephaly (the birth defect) and the Zika virus has not been demonstrated. It is “strongly suspected.” However, in order to respond quickly to the “crisis,” the world must act on a suspicion.

Someone should point out to her that abortions at sea are now a consequence of what her advisors have told her to suspect.
