Medical fake news is the Mt. Everest of fake news

Medical fake news is the Mt. Everest of fake news

by Jon Rappoport

January 25, 2017

Deep medical fraud and the destruction of health: this was the subject that prompted me to exit the news business.

As I probed deeper into that swamp, I found editors running away from my story-pitches. They didn’t want to go there. It was too scary. Too threatening to the status of their newspapers and magazines.

Lesson learned in the late 1980s: if you want to go deep, go independent.

I never looked back.

Here are three examples of going deep:

ONE: Proponents claim a vaccine stimulates a person’s immune system to produce antibodies, which are immune-system scouts.

This is supposedly a rehearsal. The immune system gets a chance to respond to a “test run,” so that when the real disease hits, the immune-defense will be ready and will knock out the disease quickly.

Except there are many diagnostic tests for disease that look for antibodies, and if antibodies show up, the doctor tells the patient he has the disease.

It’s absurd.

Antibodies from a vaccine=immunity. Same antibodies produced by the body in response to a germ entering the body=illness.

On top of this insanity, antibodies are only one component of a very complex immune system. The production of antibodies doesn’t guarantee a person’s whole immune system is in good shape.

In 1987, when I was writing my first book, AIDS INC., I queried the FDA about the development of an HIV vaccine. Here is what I was told: if a vaccine was ever deployed, it would produce antibodies to HIV and the person would be given a letter to carry around with him in case he was ever tested for HIV.

The letter would say, this person is immune from HIV. The antibodies are an indication of immunity, not disease.

You see, the two standard diagnostic tests for HIV were the Elisa and the Western Blot. They both tested for antibodies. If a person tested positive, he was told he had AIDS.

But if the SAME antibodies were produced by the vaccine, he’d be designated immune from AIDS.

No, that couldn’t be.

Yes, it could be and was.

TWO: Obamacare is about control, so it’s an answer to the prayers of the medical cartel.

So what do we know about their mainstream medicine, the hospital-based drug-addled modern version?

On July 26, 2000, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a landmark review by Dr. Barbara Starfield (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health), “Is US health really the best in the world?” In it, Starfield revealed what many people inside the medical establishment already knew: every year, like clockwork, the medical system was killing huge numbers of people.

Each year in the US, as Dr. Starfield reported, there are:

12,000 deaths from unnecessary surgeries;

7,000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals;

20,000 deaths from other errors in hospitals;

80,000 deaths from infections acquired in hospitals;

106,000 deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines.

The total of medically-caused deaths in the US every year is 225,000. (a conservative estimate)

This makes the medical system the third leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease and cancer.

In the wake of Starfield’s devastating report, other facts came to light: 2.1 million people in America, every year, are hospitalized as a result of reactions to FDA-approved medicines. Annually, 36 million serious adverse reactions to those drugs occur.

So, inclusive health coverage for many more Americans under the Obama Plan means these horrendous figures will rise.

This is the dirty secret.

Obama and his allies are promoting a medical system that is the third leading cause of death in America. It’s that stark and it’s that simple.

THREE: The gold standard test for disease diagnosis is called the PCR.

Example: ABC New York reports (in “Mount Sinai patient likely does not have Ebola, health official says”):“Testing for Ebola is done at the CDC. According to a CDC spokesperson testing for Ebola takes 1-2 days after they receive the samples. The primary testing is PCR. This is performed on blood that has been treated to kill and live virus [sic]. So far CDC has tested samples from around 6 people who had symptoms consistent with Ebola and a travel history to the affected region.”

But the PCR test is completely unreliable for a disease diagnosis. Why? Two reasons. First, technicians start with a tiny, tiny sample of genetic material from the patient. This sample is supposed to be part of a virus. It may or may not be. Mistakes can be made. Obviously, the techs want the sample to be viral in nature; otherwise, the diagnostic test will be complete bust.

But more importantly, the whole rationale for PCR is wrongheaded. Doctors and researchers only find a miniscule bit of hopefully relevant material in the patient to begin with. The PCR amplifies that bit many times so it can be observed. That’s the whole rationale behind the PCR.

But to consider the possibility that a virus is causing a disease in a patient, there must be huge numbers of that virus working actively in his body.

The PCR never establishes that.

Finding a tiny, tiny trace of viral material in a patient says absolutely nothing about whether he is ill, has been ill, or will become ill.

The PCR test is an irrelevant bust and a lie.

—Those are just three examples, out of many, where “going deep” gets you a strange stare and glare from medical editors at newspapers and magazines.

They run away. They disappear. They huff and puff and turn red in the face. They do whatever they can to let you know you’re no longer welcome in their presence.

It’s fun. I used to enjoy pitching stories like these to the guardians on the watchtower of truth. Their various reactions were priceless. I used to call it “watching the egg crack.”

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

And it’s instructive. You find out where the boundaries are. You learn, in your gut, how shallow and fear-ridden the mainstream news business is, behind its pompous front.

You discover what “going independent” really means. That’s very important. Because if you’re going to leave the fold, your commitment to what you’re writing has to become relentless.

Fortunately, I discovered “relentless” was right up my alley.

It makes a cloudy day turn sunny.

Since those days when I made my exit, I’ve watched many reporters I know stop being reporters. Some of them went into real estate. Some started selling cars. Some became teachers at prep schools. Some landed jobs with partisan think-tanks and foundations.

And some are still around, turning out fake news like pancakes at a diner. Their faces are gray. They’re standing over their griddles like robots.

In off-the-cuff conversations, I told them they were making a mistake. They didn’t want to listen. I told them how vastly bored they would become.

They said it wasn’t a problem.

But it is a problem. Especially when the truth is the first casualty.

It always is the first casualty, in the news biz.

    Imagine if the legendary pianist Vladimir Horowitz had only been allowed to play requests from audiences not interested in pieces longer than 3 minutes. Imagine that his agent would blue-pencil his recital program. Reporters should be independent, because discovering a story, digging out the facts and presenting them intelligibly and with insight is a performance art. In any sane world, editors would only be allowed to suggest improvements and arrange the layout.

    Fake is officially out. Trump will build the wall; Mexico will pay for it.

    Now leaders of the US NAS (National Academy of Sciences), the long alphabetical list of federal agencies – CDC, DOE, EPA, NASA, NOAA, etc. – the UN (United Nations) will have to make an abrupt U-turn and serve, rather than deceive, the public.

    I suggest that they start by admitting the logical error in Dr. Carl von Weizsacker’s definition of “nuclear binding energy.” My research mentor first recognized that error on 13 June 1936, next realized the error while examining the ruins of Hiroshima in August 1945, and spent the rest of his life trying to prevent the enslavement of humanity with fake science: PAUL KAZUO KURODA (1917-2001)

    Truth will out…

  5. Hi Jon,

    With reference to the email below, I was wondering if you are aware of the German Court ruling on the Measles virus. There was a 100,000 euro prize offered for proof of the measles virus. Someone claimed this but and tried to sue for payment when not payed as the evidence for the measles virus is sifted from 6 science papers, which means there is a possibility that it doesn’t exist at all. I wonder how many other viruses are just cellular debris wrapped up in a fatty coat inside a cell ready for elimination. The impression we are given by the mainstream media is that we can photo these things through a microscope, clearly this is not true, as in the HIV photos that appeared on the front cover of magazines many years ago.

    I enjoy your work, keep it up.

    best wishes

    Robert Cartwright


    • Nobody can see a virus, so there are no photos. Whatever you can find on the Internet are artwork, not photos. For the fun, Google for images of e.g. the measles virus or the flu virus. You will see a variety of pictures, which don’t even look like each other. Nice artwork, but nothing more than that.

      • Travis says:

        There are electron micrographs in false color which are purportedly viruses. I think even one virus is allegedly big enough to be seen with a light microscope. Pictures of this virus could be in true color.

        So there are photos, but what are they really? Are they infectious? Do they multiply? Are some real and are some imaginary scapegoats?

        I don’t know.

        I think certain diseases were unfairly attributed to viruses in the past: I am absolutely certain about AIDS because I have read Duesberg’s book and much info on this website and from

        And I also read a book called Virus Mania. It makes the case for other viral frauds such as SARS an Polio.

        There are others.

        But the question of whether or not some viruses are what they say they are is an open question in my mind. Chickenpox and HPV do appear to be infectious. Perhaps there are a few that actually can do damage.

        The Measles thing with Stephen Lanka is bizarre.The whole thing could have been a PsyOp made to discredit AIDS Truthers. I don’t know. Maybe Measles really is what Lanka says it is?

        This is interesting. There are some good books out there on this topic. Maybe I will read another book on virology to get a better understanding of this.

        But certainly, HIV does not cause AIDS. Amyl Nitrate and Antibiotics cause AIDS.

        And the diagnosis if HIV+ itself can cause much psychosomatic damage.

    Unfortunately this is a basic truth of this swamp that needs to be drained! Wouldn’t it be great to see this one drained? Way too many people are under the spell of the medical establishment in our country, and only by spreading the truth wil it ever change.

  7. Tim says:

    It’s an urban myth (planted?) that challenging the immune system necessarily results in development of an adaptive immune response (antibodies).

    From the following article about a flu vaccination idea:

    “…Finally, the efficacy of HA/NA-based vaccines is limited. A recent report [5] suggests their efficacy rate is only 59% in 18–64 year olds, falling to 35% in those over 65 years of age.”

    In other words, when the immune system is not at optimal levels (elderly, in this context, but also infants), it does not respond, to produce antibodies in all subjects, the rate falling off with immune system weakening . You need a decent immune system for the vaccination concept to work. It’s pointless to vaccinate individuals with weak immune systems, because their immune system won’t respond as desired. First, bring the immune system up to optimal levels. The problems disappear.

    It’s well know in the system, that simply challenging the immune system is not enough to establish antibodies, that is why adjuvants are added, to increase the success rate. But this is still ineffective with weak immune systems. Some vaccination systems require multiple applications to get antibodies. One system in the literature requires five vaccinations over time, for antibody development even in health individuals with good immune systems.

    The reference in the quote is to a Lancet study on the efficacy of flu vaccination. Flu vaccination is pointless in my opinion for healthy people, because their immune systems are capable of handling flu. For people with weak systems, it doesn’t work well enough.

    I’m not against vaccination in all cases, all diseases. Context dependent. How common is the disease in question, really? Demographics. Are more problems being created than solved with a particular vaccination?

    Prosperity is the best birth control. those who have a good income tend to have less children for a varity of reasons.

    Is this the same issue with Hepatitis C? I know there has been a constant barrage of hysteria about this “hidden” disease, ready to “explode” among the population. However, there are no symptoms…

    • Hepatitis (any letter) is caused by a nutrient deficiency, especially selenium. Viruses have nothing to do with it. That’s the reason why you see it mainly among prostitutes and IV drug users. Both groups happen to have bad eating habits.

    • Chilepowered says:

      I overheard a doctor and wife talking about their doctor friend. The bottom line was that the friend was currently making millions per year doing Hepatitis C testing and when that dies down he’ll be on to the next cash-in. He’s in the loop for the next “phase” of medical trends. I would say he may now be cashing in on genetics testing, a futile gauge since, with the knowledge of epigenetics now, our DNA changes all the time. To a large extent it’s a moving target.

  10. S. Englert says:

    Unfortunately, Big Pharma owns Big Media with billions in ads buys, and the medical-industrial complex has bought many members of Congress with campaign contributions.

  11. John says:

    The well being of the US citizen/patient is no longer considered by the diabolical corrupt politicians in government, these low creatures keep the medical system in the triple C mode: CORRUPTION, CONFUSION, and COMPLICATED. The medical system is now set up as a pure greed driven business where only a select few reap any benefits. The system is driven by Big Pharma, out of touch government bureaucrats and greedy parasitic trial lawyers who now cause doctors to practice defensive medicine. This system has turned doctors into robots who stare at a computer screen throughout most of the patient’s visit. Technology is taking away the crucial human interaction which is vital between a doctor and a patient. The substantive questions which need to be asked and the basic human contact between doctor and patient is being severely limited. Instead the surveillance state is more concerned about building an electronic dossier on each patient. Not for the patient’s well being but more for the state’s benefit in order for the state to monitor the poor slob and control them.

    Doctors today give you medicine to treat your symptoms but will never heal you. The countless tests they give you are mainly to avoid lawsuits and just end up actually harming more people than they help. The herbal industry has gotten just as bad, with so many herbs out there and so many different types/brands, it is hard for the average person to gauge what is right for them and what is actually effective and not just a pile of worthless junk.

    The future of medicine should be a combination of both natural medicine and traditional medicine. Both have a role but the government and the trial lawyers don’t seem to want them to fuse together for the betterment of the patient. Globalism is evil, the pharmaceutical industry is greedy, the politicians who make the rules are diabolical and the trial lawyers are the despicable parasites who benefit from this rigged system and the many mistakes it is bound to make.

    How do we solve the problem? Start with more competition across state lines which Trump seems to embrace. Reign in the trial lawyers with tort reform, strengthen medicare and medicaid by examining and eliminating the massive fraud/corruption involved throughout the system. These are the answers to the problems but nobody has the guts to actually provide the catalyst to change this triple C system. Corruption, confusion and keeping it complicated benefit globalism, so the triple C system remains intact.

    We need a new system, the the triple S mode needs to take effect soon: Simplicity, Substance, and Survival. If we continue to let the system remain as status quo, it will eventually be overwhelmed and melt down.

    Illegal aliens need to stop using emergency rooms as their personal doctors, California has been destroyed by this common practice. Keep letting Utopian liberal globalists drive the policy of this nation and we will end up like Venezuela. It make take another twenty years but we will eventually get there if we continue to put our heads in the sand and not confront the major problems the medical industry has.

  12. 1. It’s questionable if viruses exist at all. Nobody can see them. All scientists can see with an electron microscope are pieces of DNA, which they then puzzle together to something they call a virus. You can hardly call that science.
    2. Let’s assume there is a virus. Is the virus the cause or the result of the disease? As nobody can see a live virus this is everyone’s guess.

    Virology is one big hoax. It’s all based on assumptions, wild fantasies and a lot of wishful thinking.

    • Chilepowered says:

      Vaccines Revealed – Episode 5 –

      “Viruses are now being recontextualized as being essential to our health.”

      Contemporary knowledge around viruses is definitely redefining them, as science progresses. If only the medical community would keep up with and apply the new real science.

  13. Good article, Jon, I’ve seen similar before.

    I think we learnt from AIDS, the “illness” can be the medication. US 1st Gulf War veterans developed AIDS like symptoms in 10,000’s (McVeigh’s violent protest)

    Was HIV caused by industrial pollution processed by chimps and green monkeys used to grow a polio vaccine?

    In USA the health industry is a profit based system, as such you can be assured of the following
    1) You will be besieged with unnecessary treatments and prescriptions.
    2) You will pay more for drugs than those in countries with a proper health care system
    3) you will deliberately be made ill to boost profits autism and other diseases will be injected into your body.
    4) your life expectancy will be lowered can’t have you collecting your Federal old age retirement money too long.

  18. arcadia11 says:
    at the link above is a list of all states with bills re vaccinations up as of 25 jan 2017. nvic is asking that action be taken in the states where the bills are marked “oppose”. note that ny has a bill up for expanding forced detainment and treatment of those suspected of vaccine-preventable diseases.
    as i read through the list, especially ny’s contributions, i briefly experienced an overwhelming, almost dizzying sense of unreality. even if none of these bills pass, finally seeing so overtly, such totalitarian desires in print from legislators was unsettling. i quickly let any fear pass away and upon that managed to laugh at the worst from ny – and it felt so much more appropriate and natural than fear or dread. i know this goes without saying, but what made the difference was noticing that the sense of unreality was due to momentarily letting the reality of the words/wishes of others overlay my own reality. and that caused distress. and that in turn reminded me of a question put forth by someone years ago when having his listeners recall times in their lives when they were happy: “what was it that made you happy?” i had to admit that i did not know. the answer was simply “you were yourself”.
