Zika: biggest news service in America absolutely clueless

Zika: biggest news service in America absolutely clueless

by Jon Rappoport

February 2, 2016

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

First, many thanks to great investigative reporter and researcher, Jim West, for help on this story.

Okay, here we go.

Of course, I’m talking about the Associated Press (AP)—and its recent coverage of the Zika story: January 27, “270 of 4,180 suspected microcephaly cases confirmed.”

AP actually had its hands on the most explosive information possible, it reported that information in one stunning paragraph, and then it let that paragraph sit there like a dead corpse. It didn’t do anything with it. Just another day at the office. Connect the dots? See the implications? Never heard of it.

To set this up, earlier in the story, AP revealed that Brazilian researchers have been re-checking their own work on Zika, and lo and behold, the original 4,180 cases of babies born with small heads and brain impairment (microcephaly) have turned out to be only 270.

The Brazilians are going through more records. But so far, the “epidemic” is not even close to an epidemic. The whole story that has spread all over the world was based on 4,180 cases. Without that number, there would have been no story.

The AP piece then goes on to revelation number two. This is even more stunning:

“Brazilian officials said the babies with the defect [microcephaly/small heads, brain damage] and their mothers are being tested to see if they had been infected. Six of the 270 confirmed microcephaly cases were found to have the [Zika] virus.” (emphasis added)

Hello, AP? Anyone home? Pick up. Don’t you see what you’re reporting? Don’t you get it?

So far, there are only six confirmed cases where a baby was born with microcephaly and also had the Zika virus. Six cases. That’s six.

And on that basis, health agencies and governments and media outlets all over the world are going crazy with warnings about the Zika virus.

There is absolutely no evidence that Zika is causing anything here. Zero evidence.

To even begin to think a virus is causing a condition, you must be able to show that the virus is present in the overwhelming majority of cases.

That test has not been passed re Zika. It has utterly failed thus far.

With this information, the Associated Press did nothing. They didn’t press the experts. They didn’t go anywhere. They didn’t ask questions. They reported the bombshell…and then they walked away.

There’s more. In their story, AP reaches out to a representative of the CDC. The subject is the number of microcephaly cases in the US every year. They’re doing a comparison between the US and Brazil. AP states:

“The United States, with about 4 million births a year, has an estimated 2,500 cases of microcephaly a year, said Margaret Honein, a CDC epidemiologist.”

The reader of the article shrugs and moves on. There’s only one problem. The CDC epidemiologist is dead wrong. Or the AP misprinted the number. Incompetently. Or on purpose. Who can say? I can’t, because although I phoned the AP yesterday and left a message about the egregious error, they haven’t gotten back to me. The AP error, you see, is this:

It isn’t 2,500 cases a year. It’s 25,000. As in thousand.

Every year in the US—and the conventional medical literature is very clear on this—there are 25,000 babies born with microcephaly.

(See “Practice Parameter: Evaluation of the child with microcephaly (an evidence-based review)”; Neurology 2009 Sep 15; 73(11) 887-897; Report of the Quality Standards Subcommittee of the American Academy of Neurology and the Practice Committee of the Child Neurology Society.)

Why is this significant? Because, obviously, the Zika virus isn’t the cause. In fact, the same literature states that any insult to the fetal brain during pregnancy can cause microcephaly. The mother falls down the stairs. She is severely malnourished. She ingests a poison, a street drug, a toxic medical drug.

But if the AP, in its story, had published the actual number of microcephaly cases in the US every year (25,000 not 2,500), and compared it to the known number of microcephaly cases in Brazil at this point (270), people might wake up and say, “Why is Brazil the focus? Why is the situation in Brazil causing a worldwide crisis? Are the World Health Organization and the CDC crazy?

The answer to that last question, of course, is yes. But not just crazy. First and foremost, they’re liars.

Referring back to my original point about the Brazilian researchers finding only 270 confirmed cases of microcephaly, and then only six of those with the Zika virus, the World Health Organization has taken that information and spun it—and media outlets have followed suit. The 270 Brazilian cases of microcephaly are now coupled with the phrase: “…with evidence of an infection.”

Let me translate that clever piece of manipulation. The implication is: all 270 cases also have the Zika virus. That’s what “infected” means.

Not just six cases with the virus. No. All 270 cases.

A lie.


power outside the matrix


So, all you women who are thinking about having a baby: don’t. Don’t get pregnant. Don’t travel to 22 countries. Believe the authorities. They know what’s best for you. They always do. Surely, there’s a global epidemic underway. Out of nine billion people, 270 in Brazil have microcephaly, and six of those have the virus that could impair your baby. This makes perfect sense. Of course it does. If you have the thinking power of a rock. If you’re committed to a life of abject fear, based on nothing.

Perhaps it’s dawning on some of you that we’re in the wrong business. We should be starting our own branch of Fear, Inc. Our product would sell like crazy.

Or we could just put the World Health Organization on our personal terror watch list.

    Oh dear, an amusing thought: “put the World Health Organization on our personal terror watch list”

  3. Josh says:

    Its incredible how damn *hard* it for simple logic and sense to get any traction in peoples minds these days.

    Social engineering is a helluva drug.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guillain%E2%80%93Barr%C3%A9_syndrome *Guillain–Barré syndrome*

    This is what many of these people have…not a mosquito virus. Bill Gates is shown releasing mosquitos from a jar…part of the psy ops.

    The syndrome THEY are psy ops-ing has been around for awhile.

  5. Dan says:

    Come on, Jon. Those GM mosquitos aren’t gona sell themselves. It’s kind of a pump and dump strategy- Generate fear, sell a bunch of useless poison, maybe carry out some covert population control operations while they’re at it, and make a crapload of money.

  6. SamAdamsGhost says:

    Hmmmmm . . . recently I read an article about the lack of intellectual curiosity and reading among young military officers. I’ve observed how poorly prepared are young h.s. grads and college students for their studies, even though they may have a high g.p.a. Is this AP story another example of the lack of critical thinking skills and the general dumbing down of the population ? Are we an Idiocracy now?
    (Just look at the candidates in our ‘elections’.)

  7. Nick Tucker says:

    The next big lie in mainstream media has already started with the BS that Afrika will be seriously impacted by ZIKA. What I can say is that it will suddenly appear in those ares of the continent that have a heavy presence of Monsanto. The world is truly “Roundup Ready” for anti-science bullsh*t.

    The World Health Organization Is in Need of A World Health Distraction! And The Republican Party is Close to Cancelling Out Obamacare, Costing The World Health Organization Billions of Dollars per year, Off of the Backs of the American Public!!! Not to mention the Global Warming Initiative which is about to Bite The Dust, Costing The U.N. Billions of Dollars Annually. This is ,yet Another HUGE Financial Loss to the World FINANCIAL Market!! And Then, Lets take a Look at the Fossil Fuel Dilemma , That has been created by The Brilliant LIBERAL THINK TANK! The Price of Oil is, ALL But Bottoming Out!!! And The Financial Shock-wave from that Multi-Billion Dollar World market Loss, Is Still Yet to be Determined! WE THE PEOPLE Of The World Population, Are about to Experience UNNATURAL Catastrophes, That are Presently, Unexplainable! But Look on the Bright side, We Stand the Chance of Ending The Politically Correct Dilemma!

    Come on folks, try reading beyond the headlines for a change. Read the AP article hot linked in Rappaport’s article.
    Of the 4,180 SUSPECTED cases (reported since October), the researchers did a more intense analysis of more than 700 of those cases. Of THOSE 700, they confirmed 270 cases and ruling out 462 others. So it’s NOT 270 out of 4,180 (or 6.46%) as Rappaport claims in his article, but actually 270 cases confirmed out of those 700 that went through a more intense analysis (or 37-39%). Do the math, that’s significant!
    “In 2015 the country reported nearly 3,000 cases of the incurable condition, called microcephaly—about 20 times more than the prior year”. Something is different than last year to cause that kind of jump and needs further investigation.

    Hi Jon, Glad to see you’re still out there on the edge, investigating, debunking, and enlightening: Bravo!

  11. Sherlock says:

    To be exact: 270 confirmed cases + 462 ruled out = 732 (not 700). Anyway, those numbers have been updated.

    “The Ministry of Health confirmed there are 404 cases of microcephaly or other central nervous system disorders in Brazil, out of which 17 are related to Zika virus. A total of 709 suspected cases have been ruled out. The ministry and the state health departments are still investigating 3,670 potential cases of the condition across the country. The figure applies to cases reported by January 30.”
