Today we publish a guest article by Bert Olivier, who is Honorary Professor of Philosophy at University of the Free State, South Africa. Bert exposes the changing narrative of the virus’s origins, explains PCR testing’s ineffectiveness and cites the doctors and scientists who are calling for bravery in refusing the Covid vaccine.
Since the beginning of 2020 my partner and I have gone through several stages of revision of our understanding of the so-called ‘pandemic’. At first it seemed reasonable to accept the theory of ‘zoonotic spillover’ [accessed 10 April 2020] of the SARS-CoV-2 virus from an animal like a bat, perhaps via an intermediate animal such as a pangolin, to humans. It seems to make sense, and in itself zoonotic transfer still does. Hand in hand with this the theory that the ‘virus’ originated in a lab seemed far-fetched and downright impossible – how could something that complex be constructed by (admittedly clever) humans? It is worth noting that, by March 2020, indications were that ‘Scientists are still unsure where the virus originated, and will only be able to prove its source if they isolate a live virus in a suspected species – a hard task’ (Walsh and Cotovio 2020). In early June 2021 scientists still claimed that the precise animal genesis of the ‘novel’ coronavirus is unknown, given the complexity of the process of tracing it.
More recently, however, another account (previously called a ‘conspiracy theory’), has resurfaced – the allegation that the novel coronavirus was deliberately ‘engineered’ in a laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. Needless to say, this muddied the waters somewhat. In contrast to the natural origin hypothesis, it is claimed that the coronavirus was the result of genetic manipulation of a coronavirus in the laboratory concerned. Hence, according to Maxman and Mallapaty: ‘Scientists don’t have enough evidence about the origins of SARS-CoV-2 to rule out the lab-leak hypothesis, or to prove the alternative – that the virus has a natural origin’. To complicate matters further, a large number of e-mail messages (from the first half of 2020) to and from Dr Anthony Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the United States was recently made public, sparking worldwide controversy. According to BBC News:
A January 2020 email to Dr Fauci from the director of the country’s largest biomedical research facility suggested the ‘unusual features’ of the virus may indicate it is ‘engineered’, prompting Dr Fauci to say he will reach out via phone.
In April 2020, an email from the director of the National Institute of Health, Francis Collins, nudged Dr Fauci with the subject line ‘conspiracy gains momentum’. The doctor’s response to this is fully redacted.
This May, Dr Fauci said he is ‘not convinced’ the virus originated naturally and expressed support for an investigation.BBC News, 2 June 2021
Add to this that some commentators, such as US Senator Rand Paul, have called for an investigation of Fauci’s alleged funding of so-called ‘gain-of-function’ research involving coronaviruses at the Wuhan institute, and the plot thickens perceptibly.
In addition to the question of the virus’s origins, everything concerning the advent of lockdowns in the course of 2020, including the so-called PCR tests, added to the growing mass of information one had to cope with. For as long as one simply accepted the authority of the World Health Organisation and organisations such as the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in America, it did not appear to be a problem, but because many of us do not accept such authority unquestioningly, we soon discovered that many of the dogmatically asserted claims are dubious.
The acronym (PCR) stands for ‘polymerase chain reaction’; it was invented by Dr Kary Mullis in 1985, leading to him being awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1993. The test enables one to detect, among other things, the presence of a virus in a human body by amplifying the genetic material of a virus in the body up to a level where it can be detected or ‘seen’. It is important to note that, while the PCR-test is regarded as the ‘gold standard’ method for determining whether a person has been infected by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, health officials admit that it does have its limits: it does not confirm the full presence of the virus, nor the ‘infected’ person’s capacity to infect other people.
Dr Christian Drosten is credited with adapting the PCR test for diagnosing Covid-19, the disease allegedly caused by the ‘novel coronavirus’. While it has been widely used to ‘diagnose’ those with Covid-19, not everyone agrees that it is a reliable method for doing this. There is growing worldwide opposition to the allegedly flawed PCR-tests, which result in a high percentage of so-called ‘false positives’. Several people have highlighted the fact that, when a specimen from a person’s nasal cavity is accelerated at or above 24 cycles (to amplify the genetic material present in an effort to trace evidence of the coronavirus), it is no longer reliable, and produces ‘false positives’.
These people include Dr Reiner Fuellmich – a German and American lawyer who, together with the ‘Corona Investigative Committee’, is leading an international global investigation into the Covid-19 ‘crisis’ – and Dr Sam White, a British medical doctor who recently charged the NHS in Britain with misconduct regarding the treatment of patients with Covid-19 (as well as regarding the promotion of ‘vaccines’ that are not really vaccines, but ‘genetic manipulation’). More recently, an open letter to the UK’s governments signed by 133 medical professionals points out that ‘The PCR test, widely used to determine the existence of ‘cases’, is now indisputably acknowledged to be unable reliably to detect infectiousness’. If the PCR-tests are flawed, the number of infections worldwide are egregiously exaggerated, and it is notable that these are used as a means to instil fear in countries’ citizens, which makes them so much easier to manipulate.
Confirming the unreliability of the PCR-test for Covid-19, in November 2020, The Portugal News reported that, according to the Lisbon Court of Appeal, the PCR test ‘is unable to determine, beyond reasonable doubt, that a positive result corresponds, in fact, to the infection of a person by the SARS-CoV-2 virus’. Because of a citizens’ petition the Lisbon court was obliged to provide verified data on actual Covid-19 mortality rates in Portugal. The court’s ruling stated that verified deaths from January 2020 until April 2021 amounted to 152, and not approximately 17000, as claimed by the government department involved.
The others died for different reasons, although their PCR-tests were shown as positive.1 One can only conclude that massive deception was therefore involved, and given this testimony to the flawed nature of PCR-testing it is likely that this is the case elsewhere too. The further implication is that lockdowns were completely unjustified, and the CDC’s recent notice that it will withdraw the request for the emergency use of PCR-tests after 31 December 2021 tacitly acknowledges this.
The greatest deception, of course, concerns the so-called ‘vaccines’. The WHO website tells us:
Most vaccines have been in use for decades, with millions of people receiving them safely every year. As with all medicines, every vaccine must go through extensive and rigorous testing to ensure it is safe before it can be introduced in a country’s vaccine programme.World Health Organisation
But regardless of this solemn reassurance by WHO, the Covid-19 vaccines were not subjected to such supposedly time-consuming, rigorous testing. Unsurprisingly, therefore, medical doctors take issue with their being administered throughout the world. Warnings regarding the vaccines’ lack of safety have been issued by a group comprising 57 leading scientists and medical doctors, as well as by 160 medical doctors and a French drug assessment centre.
It is common knowledge that, despite these warnings, the vaccination drive all over the world has been intensifying, prompting one to ask the obvious question: if so many medical professionals have called for the abandonment of vaccinations, why is it still being pursued so vigorously? In other words, what is the (hidden) agenda? Fortunately not everyone is willing to be vaccinated (including myself, as I have indicated publicly), as evidenced by the courageous ‘Open Letter to the Unvaccinated’, recently published by a group of Canadian academics in which they write:
You are not alone! As of 28 July 2021, 29% of Canadians have not received a COVID-19 vaccine, and an additional 14% have received one shot. In the US and in the European Union, less than half the population is fully vaccinated, and even in Israel, the “world’s lab” according to Pfizer, one third of people remain completely unvaccinated. Politicians and the media have taken a uniform view, scapegoating the unvaccinated for the troubles that have ensued after eighteen months of fearmongering and lockdowns. It’s time to set the record straight.
It is entirely reasonable and legitimate to say ‘no’ to insufficiently tested vaccines for which there is no reliable science. You have a right to assert guardianship of your body and to refuse medical treatments if you see fit. You are right to say ‘no’ to a violation of your dignity, your integrity and your bodily autonomy. It is your body, and you have the right to choose. You are right to fight for your children against their mass vaccination in school…
Do not be intimidated. You are showing resilience, integrity and grit. You are coming together in your communities, making plans to help one another and standing for scientific accountability and free speech, which are required for society to thrive. We are among many who stand with you.Ontario Civil Liberties Association: Open Letter to the Unvaccinated
In the light of the above it seems safe to say that, despite the likelihood that those driving the vaccination campaign worldwide (as part of ‘the great deception’), hiding their true danger to human health and lives, will have to reckon with the resilience of the human spirit among those who will surely resist this illegitimate, concerted effort to trash human rights. As the movie, Gattaca, taught us: ‘There is no gene for the human spirit’.
