I DID NOT BEGIN MY COVERAGE OF ‘COVID’ as an investigative reporter. I began as a homeopath.
This month, I arrive at day 1,000 as an investigative editor and reporter covering the grief that we are told began in early 2020. Nearly 33 months ago, on March 3, 2020, I started a daily publication devoted to tracking the crisis, called Covid19 News. The same day, I initiated a project of building a chronology backward in time, as far back as necessary to get to the origins of the situation.
And I understood that I would be investigating and unraveling the “covid” test, which is the very heart of the matter — the whole matter — of whatever was being claimed and whatever response society came up with.
But I did not start there. Because the crisis was presented as the potential for people getting sick (that’s what a pandemic is supposed to be), I responded by gathering the information and medications necessary to prevent and treat the disease that was being described.
I committed myself to helping anyone in my personal circle or community who got sick, including in my small apartment if necessary, despite my considerable public responsibilities and the claim of a deadly, contagious disease.

The Vile Conspiracy of Helping Others
As the weeks of the crisis moved on, I felt like I was one of the rare few individuals concerning myself with that seemingly odd detail — how to best take care of unwell people. Nowhere in the commercial media did I come across anyone else’s article about tending to the sick — for example, how to help your partner or children should they have taken ill.
I remain appalled by this fact. News reports should have been awash with articles about proper nutrition and hydration, getting rest, avoiding irritants, toxins and inflammatory agents, and other common sense suggestions for people who might need them.
But there was none of this. It demonstrates either that the health concern was entirely abstract, known to be false, and/or that people were committed to surrendering their power. From the standpoint of the media, it points to foreknowledge that the vaccine would be the only acceptable topic of discussion.
In social media, it was de rigueur to accuse anyone who dared to bring up helping people of conspiracy theorizing, and by extension, of harming or killing people.
Thank you to the Planet Waves subscribers who stuck with me and my team through this crisis. To those who felt my coverage was inaccurate, insincere or irresponsible, we miss you. You’re invited to come back to the fold and re-subscribe to Planet Waves.
With Viruses, They Say There’s No Cure
Under the viral paradigm, there are no cures, which is why it’s so frightening to most people. Early on, mentioning the potential positive effects of elderberry, vitamin D, zinc and melatonin were on the level of publicly accusing the government of planning the 9/11 attacks the day they happened.
Rampant censorship did not begin with claims of lab leak, of government planning, of a false flag event or the lack of a virus. Rather, they began with censorship of health-related matters — aided and abetted by an audience ready to crucify anyone who dared discuss what to actually do about the claimed problem of people getting sick.
The notion of taking care of yourself became some kind of public offense. It was common to hiss at people and insult them for not being doctors — when doctors were not being meekly helpful. And there was a massive public relations effort behind this, shoved at us 24 x 7 to no end.
In the end, I never treated anyone for “covid.” I only treated for anxiety. It is worth noting that all of the classical homeopathic remedies that address respiratory disease are also used to treat fear. So in this sense — as we saw — a claimed respiratory outbreak is also a pandemic of panic.

My Early Coverage: Take Care of Yourself
However, the personal level of the situation was my first stop: the wellness issue in the face of a claimed public health threat. I wrote an article about why hand sanitizer is useless (and backfires), how to manage your household in a crisis, and why you need to know how to take care of yourself. I was also writing about the debilitating effects of panic. I collected and published my readers’ silver lining experiences of the lockdowns.
We were one of the few publications that refused to take a fear-based approach to the situation, which was interpreted by some as reckless.
A few months into the crisis, I won the prestigious 2020 Slay Granny Award for an article on how hippies at (and promoters of) the 1969 Woodstock Festival were not worried they might catch Hong Kong Flu (said to have killed 100,000 Americans by the day the festival started). Writing this article and the overblown reader response to it were an awakening moment for me.
Before I describe my thousand days leading a “covid” investigative team, I want to say more about the medical angle, which I confronted directly. I am one of those people who prefers to manage my health independently of the seeming experts we call doctors. Only on rare occasions have I found them to be forthcoming or helpful. So where medical issues are concerned, I assume I have to figure it out myself.
Fortunately, I have developed a contact network of natural-health practitioners, homeopaths, chiropractors, herbalists, midwives and naturopathic doctors that I can call up and ask questions of. When I got my bearings on the reality of the claimed outbreak, I was shocked by the needless fuss that was being made; at the total overreaction, as if society was being prepared for the imminent onset of nuclear war.
Homeopathy and Spanish Flu
Any serious student of homeopathy knows that our predecessors handled “Spanish Flu” like any other illness. What exactly was “Spanish Flu”? Well, setting that now-open question aside, homeopaths could deal with it.
Since attending a European Commission press briefing about the “Bird Flu” scare of 2006, I have kept on hand a diversity of homeopathic remedies specifically focused around respiratory disease. However, at the time of an outbreak, the senior homeopaths in the community know their role is to come up with what is called the genus epidemicus — the one remedy that solves the problem for everyone.
To this day, this has not been accomplished. The lack of a genus epidemicus was my first indication that there was another problem — a government and scientific problem of claiming a specific disease existed that could not be identified by highly observant homeopaths.
It seemed they were reporting many different symptoms, and that is not an epidemic or pandemic (which by definition means one issue common to large population).
Nutritional and Herbal Approaches
When the fuss started, one of the first places I went was to a kimchee farm about an hour from me, and came home with a gallon or two of the stuff. Kimchee, a form of fermented cabbage, which is good food that also builds gut biome — the core of natural immunity.
I was advised by my friend Gail Murphy, a midwife and master herbalist on Vashon Island, to acquire and use a mushroom product called Agarikon from Host Defense. And I called Hahnemann Labs and made sure I had the remedies I might need on hand with sufficient supply to treat large numbers of people, should that have become necessary (and I acquired two extra basic remedy kits for good measure).
Meanwhile, I was amazed at how many practitioners of natural or holistic health had fallen for the panic (particularly in “health food stores,” where the panic seemed to be the worst). They were wearing masks, social distancing, acting smug and awaiting a vaccine. Only one — a massage therapist in my area — sent out an email to her clients saying that health practitioners work with unwell people all the time, and this situation calls for the usual basic precautions, nothing more.
So if I seemed to have a bias in my coverage — and to many, I did — it was simply that I had no reason to succumb to fear or buy into the hype. At the time, to feel confident about handling any medical challenge seemed like buying into a grand conspiracy. But that possibility had not occurred to me that one might exist.
Beginning My Investigation: The “Covid Test”
On March 3, 2020 (which I count as my personal Day 1 on the job as a reporter), I concluded the “covid” issue was not going away, and that is when I took up the matter as a journalist. From prior experience on similar stories, I knew to focus my quest for understanding on the “covid test.”
Every last claim came back to the test — from the statistical data used to justify so-called mitigation measures, to persuading an individual that they were diagnosed with an infection. I recognized that the test was the choke-point through which every other claim had to pass, and was the issue that needed to be documented the most carefully.
You may be aware that my background is covering mass poisoning incidents, and lawsuits related concealment of toxic products. I began my coverage of “covid” knowing how to locate and contact experts, how to interview them and how to understand scientific studies and documents. Here are some of the inteviews that I conducted the first year, trying to get my bearings on what was happening.
I also knew that I would need a news chronology, so I commenced that (one of many in Planet Waves history; it’s a house specialty). And I knew I would need to track backwards in time to the origins of the situation, as far back as necessary, which I assumed to be in December 2019. I learned the art and power of the chronology from lawyers who brought lawsuits aginast companies like General Electric and Monsanto.
A thousand days later, we have documented the history from March 3, 2020 back to events directly related to “covid” in 2006 and far beyond. We logged many news events per week and then many per day studying 2019 and 2020. And to learn how the PCR “test” works, I studied its history back to the 1980s, as well as genetics, metagenomics, gene alignment, genetic sequencing, lab technique, cell culturing and most of all, going deep into exactly how the polymerese chain reaction (PCR) device works and does not work.
Invented in the 1980s, this thing rose to fame as the wholly irrelevant “viral load” test for HIV during the 1990s. It was a well-developed story. It was so well-developed that by the beginning of the “pandemic” in January 2020, the CDC had already published an extensive report about how it could create 100% false positives.
What Was Known at the Start of the Crisis
The revelation that the PCR could get 100% false positives was not some kind of footnote to history.
In August 2007, the CDC devoted an entire issue of its Morbidity and Morality Weekly Report (MMWR) — its widely-read primary publication — to the problem, documenting three separate false pandemics caused by the PCR the prior year, and warning against reliance of the PCR in an outbreak.
In a comment, the editors wrote: “Presumed false-positive PCR test results in persons with nonspecific clinical features, such as rhinorrhea, sneezing, and sore throat, have raised concerns regarding the widespread application of PCR in an outbreak setting.”
They go on: “The outbreaks described in this report illustrate the limitations of relying solely on PCR assays to confirm pertussis. PCR is an important tool for diagnosing individual cases of pertussis in persons for whom a high index of suspicion exists and for whom timely treatment and PEP are essential. However, the positive predictive value can be lower if PCR is used as a screening tool without culture confirmation” during an outbreak. Note, there is no “culture confirmation” for a claimed virus.
CDC’s admission was corroborated by the Dartmouth-Hichcock medical center, where the biggest false outbreak occurred. And it was the topic of an exensive article in The New York Times, which confirmed the basic facts and attempted to explain what happened.
This is how asymptomatic people could be convinced they were sick. There was a test that got 100% false positives and nothing to support any claim to the contrary.
Viral Transmission Transmission Theory Disproved in 1919
In the course of my work accounting for what, exactly, medical authorities knew on Jan. 1, 2020 [see Open Letter to Prof. Denis Rancourt], one of the strangest things I learned related to the “Spanish Flu,” remembered in legend as the most virulent disease ever, was not contagious. That we were facing another “Spanish Flu” was invoked many times during “covid,” and many were proud they were living through the next one.
My source is the leading American public health doctor, Milton J. Rosenau, MD, then the leading public health doctor in the United States, whose experimental results were confirmed several times over before being stashed into the back of the file cabinet.
Said to be caused by the highly contagious H1N1 strain, the fact that it was not transmissible from person to person. This was demonstrated in multiple experiments on the East and West coasts; not one case of disease could be conveyed from a sick person to a well person.
Accounting for these experiments in Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Vol. 73, No. 5, Aug. 2, 1919, Dr. Roseneau wrote, "We entered the [Spanish Flu] outbreak with a notion that we knew the cause of the disease, and were quite sure we knew how it was transmitted from person to person. Perhaps, if we have learned anything, it is that we are not quite sure what we know about the disease."
In fact what they learned in multiple experiments is that whatever it was not contagious. Somehow history has omitted this fact — but it’s trackable right back to the laboratory and medical notes.
Viral Cause of Death Disproved by Fauci in 2008
This discovery was followed up 89 years later by none other than Anthony Fauci, who determined that the presumed H1N1 “Spanish Flu” virus wasn’t what killed people.
Writing in the Oct. 1, 2008 edition of The Journal of Infectious Diseases, Fauci said it was not really the “flu virus” that the cause of death was bacterial pneumonia, allegedly combined with their phantom, non-transmissible “virus.”
“The postmortem samples we examined from people who died of influenza during 1918–1919 uniformly exhibited severe changes indicative of bacterial pneumonia,” Fauci and his coauthors wrote. They said the same thing was true in later (seeming) viral outbreaks in 1957-58 and 1968-69.
He concluded, “If severe pandemic influenza is largely a problem of viral-bacterial copathogenesis, pandemic planning needs to go beyond addressing the viral cause alone.” Despite the problems with the “viral cause,” the bacterial problem was never once addressed by Fauci or anyone in the course of the “covid” discussion.
Of course, to claim that there was “copathogenesis” or a dual cause is to confuse the matter, because the theorized virus and bacteria alike were shown not to be contagious, and there is no evidence that H1N1 was in any way a cause of disease — or that it even exists at all. It is a theoretical idea.
Moral, Legal and Scientific Game Over
I have written and said much about the problems with the PCR as a valid test for viral infection. Even the CDC in its emergency use authorization says it is not. Yet to even claim that it tests for the mere presence of virus (much less for infection), there must be an original sample of virus to match against. There is not.
We know this three ways. One is there is no certified reference material for “SARS-CoV-2.” Without CRM, there is no way to calibrate the test for what it is supposedly analyzing. There is no way to have a positive control to make sure it’s finding the right substance. If thre is no CRM, then the thing does not exist in any legitmate scientific context. Yet we pretend that it does.
Second, all of the scientific papers that claim the existence of a virus use metagenomics (the construction of a hypothetical genetic code), not isolation or purification of actual virus. The thing being tested for has never been shown to come from a virus, match a virus, or cause disease. Yet a PCR-positive is considered a “confirmed case” of disease.
Third, Christine Massey in the Toronto area leads a team that has queried 211 governments and institutions whether they have a sample of SARS-CoV-2 taken from a human host. They all admit — unanimously — that they do not have such a sample.
You may say, “Oh, they must, that cannot be right.” They did not when they should have, at the start of the crisis; they do not today; they will not tomorrow.
Let the Akashic Record reflect that there is a claim that a virus killed 6.6 million people and infected 636 million people, but no government can produce a sample or any record of a sample of the alleged pathogen. The claim of a deadly virus was used as an excuse to shut most of the economy, lock 4.4 billion people into their homes, administer drugs, place people in comas, isoalte nursing home patients, ground the civilian air fleet, block access to government, shut down the court system, and push 10 billion “vaccines” into people’s bodies.
But nobody can produce any quantity of the virus. Nobody can produce a paper saying that someone has a sample of the virus — not a hypothetical virus, not a tale about a virus, not a computer model of a virus, but the actual thing itself.
This may be a scientific scandal that is for most people far too big to comprehend. But we are past the point where there is any excuse for denial, for pretending, or for trusting the experts. The experts are lying. Wherever you poke a stick into “covid,” you hit bullshit. No claim that was made by any government checks out. None of the problems I have described have been acknowledged by any government or corporate media. Yet everything is out; there are no secrets. To buy into this scam, at this stage, one must be truly committed.
This may seem like a situation where you get to choose your reality. For most, it’s being chosen for them, which is a choice even if it seems to be made passively. The virus scam is not over. There is always a new one brewing, and seemingly limited interest in getting to the bottom of the issues.
Your curiosity matters.
