So why are people getting sick?
People are finally asking what's going on, if the claim of a viral cause of disease cannot be sustained. It's time to ask long-avoided questions — and to face the truth of 2020.

On a more solemn note — I am getting some queries into "what was making people sick if it wasn't a virus?" This is a question worth asking thoughtfully. It is not a simple thing.
My role as a journalist is to investigate the claims of government policymakers and corporate actors. I am not a doctor and do not diagnose individual cases of illness. Based on our 30-month investigation, neither the government nor WHO can sustain their claim of a viral cause of illness in 2020 and beyond. Their PCR test is not valid; and nobody has a sample of SARS-CoV-2 taken from a human host, with 200 countries and institutions giving official responses in the negative.
Mike Yeadon, former longtime vice president and chief scientist for Pfizer’s respiratory division, said to me in a May 29, 2022 email: “It’s definitely eyebrow-raising that nobody has a sample of this alleged virus.”
Meanwhile, how do we know there were really excess deaths in 2020? A study out of Johns Hopkins in November 2020 said there were no increases in any age category in the United States (see article, which covers two other critical developments from that era).
With a viral cause, sickness and deaths should be evenly distributed by country and state
And if there was a viral cause, that means sickness and death should be consistent nation-to-nation and state-to-state. There should be no differentials in neighboring countries or states. Upstate New York should not have fared any better than the city two hours away, with thousands of commuters coming back and forth daily all through the first four months of 2020.
Any differentials by locale indicate causes of death other than viral, such as iatrogenic or nosocomial illness — people killed and sickened by medical treatment, facilities and institutional or governmental policy. This includes overdose by HCQ, remdesivir and induced coma with forced respiration (venting), a deadly practice.
Elderly people were locked away and isolated from their loved ones, and from fresh air and sunlight, which will surely accelerate their deaths. Dementia patients do very poorly when isolated and ignored — and so does everyone else.
If there was any unusual sickness in 2020, there are many possible factors — including obsessive emphasis. I frequently link to a 2006 document from the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) indicating that thousands of people can rush to hospitals with no exposures — with symptoms — from so little as ONE news report about a toxic release that happened nowhere near them. In other words, it is known that fear alone can send people to the hospital in droves. Imagine the effects of reports broadcast around the clock for months or years.
Silencing those who asked questions
Anyone who merely proposed any alternative cause for illness in 2020 was silenced and deplatformed, partly or fully. (Many new platforms became hubs of rebellion as a result, though they are much lesser known than big sites like YouTube.) This limit on the flow of information created the illusion that there was just one side of the story. The problem reached deep into STEM professions and mainstream medicine.
You may read this peer-reviewed article from the journal Surgical Neurology International that describes the bloodbath within the medical and scientific professions of those souls who asked sincere questions.
The author writes:
“The media (TV, newspapers, magazines, etc), medical societies, state medical boards and the owners of social media have appointed themselves to be the sole source of information concerning this so-called ‘pandemic’. Websites have been removed, highly credentialed and experienced clinical doctors and scientific experts in the field of infectious diseases have been demonized, careers have been destroyed and all dissenting information has been labeled ‘misinformation’ and ‘dangerous lies’, even when sourced from top experts in the fields of virology, infectious diseases, pulmonary critical care, and epidemiology. These blackouts of truth occur even when this information is backed by extensive scientific citations from some of the most qualified medical specialists in the world.”
Vaccine injury and illness are rampant
Anyone sick starting in December has likely been stricken by the "vaccine," for which CDC has reports of 135,000 hospitalizations and 30,000 deaths. Journalists are supposed to tiptoe around this and say it’s not proof — but come on.
These figures represent a small fraction — about 1% — of the real casuality count, and this is just from the U.S. system (inaugurated 1990). By the end of 2021, the system had recorded more deaths in the prior 12 months than in the prior 30 years combined. We might ask what ‘market forces’ ensure that has never appeared in The New York Times.
Why do so few people care about Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) of 2021 and 2022? Do they know about it? Why no real discussion of children having heart attacks, or being given ECGs to play sports at age 14? Mark Crispin Miller, a professor at NYU, pays homage to “those who died suddenly” several times a week.
We live in a society that builds homes and schools on toxic waste dumps, that lives on plastic (estimated consumption of one credit card's worth per week), that drinks aspartame, and laces deadly high fructose corn syrup into many foods. We eat cereal sprayed with insecticides. Agriculture and landscaping spray glyphosate everywhere.
Immediately after the claim of a virus, cities the world over doused public facilities with disinfectants — nobody was interested in what they were. Nobody asked if these chemicals were, in fact, intended to do what the government claimed. To our knowledge, there were never any chemical tests run to chase up that angle.
A toxicological investigation is fundamental to investigating any biological cause, which to be credible must be upheld to the exclusion of all other possibilities.
Americans fill 4 billion prescriptions a year, not including vaccines. This was going on long before "covid." This does not indicate a healthy society.
I listen to EMS scanners for hours every day, in a rural community. Over many years, "difficulty breathing" is one of the most common issues people call an ambulance for — long before "covid."
Many Other Unanswered Questions
Meanwhile, what exactly was in the autumn 2019 flu shot? What happened when 5G was powered up in November 2019? Why is anyone who asks about millimeter wave technology relegated to the loony bin? Why were 94% of covid deaths in people already sick with an average of four diseases? And why the CDC and WHO rule-change in early 2020 stipulating that nearly any death could be counted as "covid” with or without a "positive" test?
See the March 24, 2020 entry in my chronology (in red) to learn more about that CDC policy — and a corresponding WHO policy issued 10 days later. Any death could and still can be counted as “covid.”
In my recollection, 2020 was the first time I heard even the meekest peep of public outcry about why people get sick, an issue I have reported my whole career — to great indignation and the claim that I am some kind of alarmist. I cover carcinogenic and endocrine-disrupting chemicals, and concern myself with students getting endometriosis from living in toxic dorms.
Why aren't we asking why more than a third of all people in Western society get cancer? Do we dare?
And we go through life thinking either that "a little poison won't kill you" or that "you gotta die of something." The parents of those students I refer to above were in all but a few cases entirely dismissive of the dangers; they were eager to accept reassurances of campus administrators. And the campus is a little tiny microcosm.
This all describes a tinderbox for long-suppressed mass-panic over health issues.
We aren’t asking a lot of questions that deserve to be asked, with impunity. But we must first start with the claim of a viral cause to a new disease; and the claim of excess death (prior to the injection). Those scenarios do not survive much scrutiny and deserve a much closer and more public reckoning. As for “the media” — what did they know and when did they know it?
Many of your questions will be illuminated by reading what actually happened, in order — that is what my chronology is for. When you take an objective look at the events, reported from all sources, many things come into focus.
