"No Medical Justification For Emergency Measures" - Open Letter From 100s Of Doctors, Health Pros Urges End To Lockdowns
September 23, 2020
Open letter from medical doctors and health professionals to all belgian authorities and all belgian media.
We, Belgian doctors and health professionals, wish to express our serious concern about the evolution of the situation in the recent months surrounding the outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We call on politicians to be independently and critically informed in the decision-making process and in the compulsory implementation of corona-measures. We ask for an open debate, where all experts are represented without any form of censorship. After the initial panic surrounding covid-19, the objective facts now show a completely different picture – there is no medical justification for any emergency policy anymore.
The current crisis management has become totally disproportionate and causes more damage than it does any good.
We call for an end to all measures and ask for an immediate restoration of our normal democratic governance and legal structures and of all our civil liberties.
‘A cure must not be worse than the problem’ is a thesis that is more relevant than ever in the current situation. We note, however, that the collateral damage now being caused to the population will have a greater impact in the short and long term on all sections of the population than the number of people now being safeguarded from corona.
In our opinion, the current corona measures and the strict penalties for non-compliance with them are contrary to the values formulated by the Belgian Supreme Health Council, which, until recently, as the health authority, has always ensured quality medicine in our country: “Science – Expertise – Quality – Impartiality – Independence – Transparency”.
We believe that the policy has introduced mandatory measures that are not sufficiently scientifically based, unilaterally directed, and that there is not enough space in the media for an open debate in which different views and opinions are heard. In addition, each municipality and province now has the authorisation to add its own measures, whether well-founded or not.
Moreover, the strict repressive policy on corona strongly contrasts with the government’s minimal policy when it comes to disease prevention, strengthening our own immune system through a healthy lifestyle, optimal care with attention for the individual and investment in care personnel.
The concept of health
In 1948, the WHO defined health as follows: ‘Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or other physical impairment’.
Health, therefore, is a broad concept that goes beyond the physical and also relates to the emotional and social well-being of the individual. Belgium also has a duty, from the point of view of subscribing to fundamental human rights, to include these human rights in its decision-making when it comes to measures taken in the context of public health.
The current global measures taken to combat SARS-CoV-2 violate to a large extent this view of health and human rights. Measures include compulsory wearing of a mask (also in open air and during sporting activities, and in some municipalities even when there are no other people in the vicinity), physical distancing, social isolation, compulsory quarantine for some groups and hygiene measures.
The predicted pandemic with millions of deaths
At the beginning of the pandemic, the measures were understandable and widely supported, even if there were differences in implementation in the countries around us. The WHO originally predicted a pandemic that would claim 3.4% victims, in other words millions of deaths, and a highly contagious virus for which no treatment or vaccine was available. This would put unprecedented pressure on the intensive care units (ICUs) of our hospitals.
This led to a global alarm situation, never seen in the history of mankind: “flatten the curve” was represented by a lockdown that shut down the entire society and economy and quarantined healthy people. Social distancing became the new normal in anticipation of a rescue vaccine.
The facts about covid-19
Gradually, the alarm bell was sounded from many sources: the objective facts showed a completely different reality.
The course of covid-19 followed the course of a normal wave of infection similar to a flu season. As every year, we see a mix of flu viruses following the curve: first the rhinoviruses, then the influenza A and B viruses, followed by the coronaviruses. There is nothing different from what we normally see.
The use of the non-specific PCR test, which produces many false positives, showed an exponential picture. This test was rushed through with an emergency procedure and was never seriously self-tested. The creator expressly warned that this test was intended for research and not for diagnostics.
The PCR test works with cycles of amplification of genetic material – a piece of genome is amplified each time. Any contamination (e.g. other viruses, debris from old virus genomes) can possibly result in false positives.
The test does not measure how many viruses are present in the sample. A real viral infection means a massive presence of viruses, the so-called virus load. If someone tests positive, this does not mean that that person is actually clinically infected, is ill or is going to become ill. Koch’s postulate was not fulfilled (“The pure agent found in a patient with complaints can provoke the same complaints in a healthy person”).
Since a positive PCR test does not automatically indicate active infection or infectivity, this does not justify the social measures taken, which are based solely on these tests.
If we compare the waves of infection in countries with strict lockdown policies to countries that did not impose lockdowns (Sweden, Iceland …), we see similar curves. So there is no link between the imposed lockdown and the course of the infection. Lockdown has not led to a lower mortality rate.
If we look at the date of application of the imposed lockdowns we see that the lockdowns were set after the peak was already over and the number of cases decreasing. The drop was therefore not the result of the taken measures.
As every year, it seems that climatic conditions (weather, temperature and humidity) and growing immunity are more likely to reduce the wave of infection.
Our immune system
For thousands of years, the human body has been exposed daily to moisture and droplets containing infectious microorganisms (viruses, bacteria and fungi).
The penetration of these microorganisms is prevented by an advanced defence mechanism – the immune system. A strong immune system relies on normal daily exposure to these microbial influences. Overly hygienic measures have a detrimental effect on our immunity. Only people with a weak or faulty immune system should be protected by extensive hygiene or social distancing.
Influenza will re-emerge in the autumn (in combination with covid-19) and a possible decrease in natural resilience may lead to further casualties.

No Vaccine, No Job: Eugenicist Bill Gates Demands “Digital Certificates” To Prove Coronavirus Vaccination Status
September 22, 2020
On March 18, outspoken eugenicist Bill Gates participated in an “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) event on Reddit entitled, “I’m Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. AMA about COVID-19.” And during this event, Gates openly admitted to the world that the agenda moving forward is to vaccinate every person on the planet with coronavirus […]

Appearing during a recent episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News, Chinese scientist Dr. Li-Meng Yan made the claim that the communist Chinese regime is directly responsible for unleashing and spreading the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). Reiterating what she has been saying in other forums, Dr. Li-Meng explained how the “Frankenstein” virus was “intentionally” developed through genetic engineering to “make […]

It takes years to develop a safe and effective vaccine, but COVID-19 vaccines are being rushed through clinical trials
In the U.S., vaccine-makers are protected from civil liability for vaccine injuries and deaths and U.K.-based AstraZeneca has also procured extra liability protection
Experts and pharma CEOs admit that a "fast-tracked" vaccine presents safety concerns
COVID-19 vaccines may have a paradoxical effect — instead of fighting the infection, they could make people more susceptible to it
Some COVID-19 vaccines use mRNA technology, which has never been licensed for use in humans and actually alters genes
The Health and Human Services' Operation Warp Speed pledges to deliver 300 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine by 2021.1 However, developing a safe and effective vaccine normally takes years and begins with animal studies. Given the urgency of the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccine makers are rushing into human clinical tests and circumventing lengthy animal trials.
Such fast-tracked vaccines pose unknown risks to humans, which are magnified because governments are granting COVID-19 vaccine makers immunity from liability for all vaccine injuries and deaths that occur after the vaccines are recommended (or mandated) by public health officials.2
In August, AstraZeneca announced that most countries it expects to supply with COVID-19 vaccine will grant the pharmaceutical company liability protection when people are harmed by the new vaccine.
In the U.S., vaccine makers already have something of a "free pass" when it comes to vaccine injury liability and lawsuits through the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 19863 and the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act, passed in 2005 (more on those later.)4
The main concern is that the combination of COVID-19 vaccines being fast-tracked to market at "warp speed" with minimal testing, together with blanket liability protection for Pharma for injuries their products cause, is a public health nightmare waiting to happen.

Dr. David Martin Exposes Three Unspeakable Facts about COVID-19
September 21, 2020
Don’t let the light-hearted humor at the start of this video deceive you. This message from Doctor David Martin and his wife, Kim, quickly becomes as serious as it gets, because it reveals three unspeakable facts about the alleged Coronavirus pandemic: (1) The official story is a lie, (2) the percentage of normal false-positive errors in the tests is higher than the percentage of confirmed positive tests from humans – which means most if not all of the reported human positive tests could be false), and (3) early results from covid-19 vaccine trials show 60% of those injected have adverse reactions – compared to less than 8% with adverse reactions from the infection the vaccines are supposed to protect against. In other words, the treatment is far worse than the disease. The unspeakable conclusion is this: A few people are set to become obscenely wealthy by causing tens of millions to become ill, to be neurologically injured, and to die prematurely. [Dr. Martin will be presenting in-person at the Red Pill Expo at Jekyll Island, Georgia on October 10-11. Live stream is available for those who cannot attend.

Nobody, and I mean nobody should ever take a public opinion poll or any publication related to COVID-19 seriously. The fraud has been off the charts. However, the public opinion polls and the fake medical research is designed to produce one condition, group think. For those that are not aware about the history of public opinion polls, or fake reported findings, they are not designed to be an accurate forecasting of some defined public opinion or research finding. They are soley designed to enforce compliance by using a condition called group think.
The late author of The Committee of 300, John Coleman, actually educated me on the history of public opinion polls and published suspect research studies and their actual intended use.
Coleman was one of the first authors to expose the true intent of the Tavistock Institute, which was created in 1913. This organization is the mother of all propaganda efforts. Manipulation of public opinion, on behalf of the achievement of achieving globalist goals is the sole purpose. Even today, more than a 100 years after the creation of this propaganda factory, Tavistock provides training to mainstream media (MSM) outlets on how to bend the will of the people to the globalist agenda.
If there is a central theme to their propaganda, it lies in the value of using public opinion polls, or reporting fake medical data, in order to create a group think mentality. Group think is a shared sociological and psychological term which works on the premise that if everyone else believes something to be true, what is wrong with YOU for not believing the same thing? The globalists that run Tavistock have been highly successful in shaping the social, cultural, educational and economic opinions of the general public. If you do not think so, just look at the mantra that permeates our airwaves where nearly every commercial and MSM talk show reminds us to (1) social distance; (2) wear a mask; and, (3) stay home as much as possible.
There is an experiment that was conducted in the 1950’s which demonstrates why present day America is totally acquiesced to unconstitutional authority.
One of the premier and classic studies on how to develop group think among the population is best exemplified in a landmark study known as the Solomon-Asch experiment. The masses at the old Roman Coliseum and the concentration camps of Nazi Germany are shining examples of how a populace can be manipulated into not only accepting state-sponsored mass murder, but in our time to wear health-damaging face masks even when contraindicated for health reasons (eg running on a treadmill inside of a Planet Fitness gym). Establishing group think is key to controlling the public, by controlling their beliefs.
It took 60 days to destroy the American economy and undo all the financial gains that Trump had accomplished. Why did we go along with this madness when we knew what we were being told was bravo sierra?
Before we actually look at a landmark study that answers this question, it is important to ask yourself a question. Do you think of yourself as a conformist or a non-conformist? If you ask most people the same question, you would find that most people consider themselves to be a non-conformist and would be able to stand up to a group when they know they are right. However, that is not the case.
Can nonconformists actually resist the peer pressure and NOT conform to beliefs and actions that are clearly wrong? This article will answer this question.
In the 1950’s, Polish born psychologist, Solomon Asch, conducted a conformity study. The participants signed up to participate in a psychology experiment in which they are asked to complete a vision test. This was a deception. The real experiment attempted to answer the question, can people resist peer pressure in order to not conform to a false belief? Seated in a room with the other participants, the research participants are shown a line segment and then asked to choose the matching line from a group with three segments of different lengths.
The experimenter subsequently asked each participant individually to select the matching line segment. Early on in the experiment, everyone in the group chooses the correct line in order to establish a group think mentality. Yet, as the experiment continued, the other participants, falsely and purposely and unanimously declare that a different line is actually the correct match when it is obvious that the wrong answer was selectively been chosen by the experiment's confederates. The objective is change the opinion of the subject always seated in seat six.

The Pathway to the End Days Has Been Established: The 5 Globalist Goals Related to the Introduction of COVID-19
September 19, 2020
Nobody has published a list, until now, which states, “These are the goals of the contrived, so-called pandemic.” However, the goals can be ascertained through observation and the sequencing of data and that is what this article will address.
Have you wondered out loud how we can call this a pandemic? Where are the bodies in the street? What does it say about the general health of America, except for the people with serious underlying health conditions, about the veracity of the claim that we must lockdown in the face of the alleged pandemic, yet, it takes a test to determine If one has even contracted or been exposed to this “pandemic”. If only all of our pandemics were so obscure.
As covered on the CSS, the Commissioner of the FDA stated on April 18, 2020, that test manufacturers were not going to be required to validate the accuracy of their tests. This is why there are endless allegations of fabricated numbers and that nobody really knows what the numbers entail. The goal was clearly to provide a pretext to shut down by perpetuating an environment to exist in which fraudulent numbers could be used to shut America down. And this is not only happening in the United States, but it is occurring throughout the entire western civilization. As a result, the global economy has collapsed. However, in this process involving fraud and deceit, on an unparalleled scale, the multiple agendas are transparent for all who have eyes to see.
The Manipulative Goals of the “Plandemic” Lockdown
In ascending order, ranging from least important to most important, the following represent the goals of the lockdown:
Goal #1: The Compromised Democratic Party Are Leading a Bolshevik Revolution Against the Constitution and Populism
SIMULTANEOUS GOVERNMENTAL AND REGIME CHANGE of the United States and the rising tide of populism is the first level target of the lockdowns resulting from the plandemic. It is quite clear that destruction of the middle class and the upper middle class of the United States is the primary objective of the so-called pandemic and subsequent lockdowns. The two primary goals of the lockdowns consist of the destruction of all civil liberties and to crush the economic strength of the group most inclined to stand up to this tyranny, the small business owners of the middle and upper middle class. The economic goals will be handled separate and apart from the political goals of this attack upon the Constitution.
It is at this level that America is presently preoccupied in the moment in a never-ending struggle between civil liberty and imposed communist lockdowns. The real battle has to do with imposing a communist/Marxist government on the people of the United States.
This is where the Pelosi’s, Biden’s, Harris’ et al come into play. They are the modern-day Brownshirts. As the public representatives of the Deep State, these Brownshirt Democrats primary task to destroy the rule of law. Their secondary goal is to demoralize any potential resistance through a constant discrimination against the people and their rights. This is why casinos are open and churches are discriminated against. Public employees in California can work out in government gyms, but public gyms are closed. There is no hiding the duplicity and it is deliberate and is designed to remove any thoughts of successful resistance. From published CDC documents and even Fauci’s March of 2020 statements, we know the masks do not work. However, these ineffective masks are the modern symbols of enslavement.
The dehumanizing effects cannot be overlooked as well. The economic goal will be handled separately from the political destruction of the United States. In order to transfer the governmental power structure TOTALLY away from the people, the Constitution must be totally destroyed and it is. Local Democrats have eviscerated the Bill of Rights especially for Christians. Social media is allowed to censor in violation of Open Forum Law, Section 230, and they do so with impunity. As is happening in Australia and New Zealand it will soon be a crime in America to speak out against tyranny of autocratic rule. And let’s not forget that the mainstream media is a partner to these modern day Brownshirts with the constant reference to “social-distancing, wear your mask and “we are all in this together”. This is the dominant PSYOP of the day. This MSM mantra is demoralizing and conditions the public to obey.
Goal #2 of the Lockdowns: The Economic Destruction of the United States
The second and simultaneous goal of the lockdowns is the economic destruction of the United States. This runs hand in hand with destruction of representative government and the Constitution.
America is the world’s home to entrepreneurship and economic mobility. Further, in order for the Democrats to establish a Marxist government, ruled by the business elite, all competition to the global corporate oligarchy must be eliminated. That means the destruction of the corporate elite as a corporate oligarchy takeover is being executed and will supersede previous political rights and economic independence of the American people. Any economic independence which fosters self-determination must be eliminated.
In the so-called pandemic, the large corporations were declared “essential” and enjoyed record profits while their small business competitors were closed and largely eliminated.
There can be no New World Order if there is a country such as America, that has a robust economy that allows for social-economic mobility. There can be no New World Order if there are citizens in one of the planet’s most populous countries, armed with advanced weaponry and who have never experienced defeat. This is why America must become New Babylon. In 2012, I had a long-term personal friend, who worked for FEMA, bug out, with like-minded colleague. He told me that the hammer was coming down because of the rising tide of populism and this was in 2012, long before Donald Trump’s candidacy.
Many, most Americans believe that if we can just get Donald Trump elected, the pandemic-related lockdowns will be eliminated and a return to normalcy is possible. That is not the case as that ship has sailed. Trump may not send you to a FEMA camp, however, that is about all he can offer because the globalists have already destroyed America, it is just that the illusion of normalcy exists and cognitive dissonance rules the day. And even if Trump is re-elected, there is not guarantee that he will survive assassination especially not that Ginsburg dead and a deciding-Supreme Court seat lies in the balance. Because of these factors and more, a civil war lies in our immediate future. It will not end for the globalists and their Democratic minions and their subversive groups, until this country is in ruins.
One might wonder what will replace the Republic? Wrong question as there more goals to ponder

Brainwashing experiment: Clinical trials designed to discover the “right message” to convince people to get vaccinated for COVID-19
September 18, 2020
(NaturalHealth365) There’s a growing seed of doubt over the COVID vaccine, and officials seem eager to snuff it out. One way to do this? They’ve decided to fund clinical trials to figure out how to market the “right message” that will get people to agree to vaccination.
This is exactly what we’re seeing out of recent research from institutions including Yale University. Brazen researchers are looking for ways to “sell” the idea of a rapidly produced coronavirus vaccine – and they’re pulling on all sorts of psychological strings to get people to acquiesce to the yet-to-be-born pharmaceutical golden child.
Twisted clinical trials: Scientists-turned-marketers are now spending money on finding the best way to manipulate the general public
We can think of a lot better ways to spend research dollars than this: testing “different messages about vaccinating against COVID-19.”
Yet this is exactly what researchers out of Yale University are doing. They’ve randomized 4,000 people into one of 12 groups, with all but two control groups receiving one of 10 carefully crafted messages about the COVID vaccine.
The goals of the messaging is to convince people to actually get the vaccine once it becomes available.
These messages range from ones based on personal freedom (“a message about how COVID-19 is limiting people’s personal freedom and by working together to get enough people vaccinated society can preserve its personal freedom”) to guilt (a message that “asks the participant to imagine the guilt they will feel if they don’t get vaccinated and spread the disease”).
Do NOT ignore the health dangers linked to toxic indoor air. These chemicals - the 'off-gassing' of paints, mattresses, carpets and other home/office building materials - increase your risk of headaches, dementia, heart disease and cancer.

The researchers are even investigating the effects of a message that shames people and calls them out for being cowardly (a “message which describes how firefighters, doctors, and front line medical workers are brave. Those who choose not to get vaccinated against COVID-19 are not brave”).
Of course, the idea that advertisers and marketing experts try to manipulate and persuade the public is nothing new. But it’s concerning to hear that these same psychological tactics are being used when it comes to influencing a person’s decisions about their medical autonomy and bodily freedom.
In the future, the Yale researchers plan to “compare the reported willingness to get a COVID-19 vaccine at 3 and 6 months of it becoming available” between the 10 experimental groups and 2 control groups.
Citizens group demands investigation into Fauci, NIAID for conspiring with communist China over development of coronavirus bioweapon
September 18, 2020
(Natural News) Retired U.S. Army Reserve Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) has penned an article calling for a full investigation into the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), its leader Anthony Fauci, and the communist Chinese regime, as it appears the three conspired to unleash the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) into the world.
Writing for the Citizens Commission on National Security (CCNS), Sellin presents a compilation of evidence to suggest that Fauci played a key role in not only exposing the world to the plandemic, but also in getting it funded through large, taxpayer-funded grants given by his department to the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).
Describing his findings as a “preponderance of evidence,” Sellin says that there “is now little question” that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) came from a Chinese laboratory, likely the WIV. The only question that remains, he says, is whether the virus was leaked accidentally or intentionally by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Sellin questions why the World Health Organization (WHO), which also conspired with the CCP, poised itself to downplay the threat of the virus early on, only to heavily ramp up “social distancing,” lockdowns, and masks several months later. It is also strange, Sellin notes, that China early on cut off all domestic flights between Wuhan and both Beijing and Shanghai, but continued to allow travel to Europe and the United States.
“There are also questions about the role of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases’ (NIAID), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci, in directing U.S. grant funds to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the nature of the experiments that funding supported,” Sellin further notes.
“I am calling for an investigation of NIAID’s controversial research collaboration with China regarding the origin of the COVID-19 virus,” he continues. “A Senate committee or Justice Department investigation would be a good start.”

Public health expert reveals the FDA and Fauci’s shocking plot to bury hydroxychloroquine as potential COVID-19 cure
September 7, 2020
(Natural News) On the show “Life, Liberty & Levin,” host Mark Levin talked to Dr. Harvey A. Risch, a professor of Epidemiology in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the Yale School of Public Health and Yale School of Medicine, about hydroxychloroquine, a drug that can be used to prevent and treat coronavirus (COVID-19).
The pair also discussed why the government and mainstream media are trying to hinder developments concerning the use of the drug to fight the pandemic.
What is hydroxychloroquine?
Several months ago, people have never heard of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ). Now, HCQ is the most controversial drug on the planet. Mainstream media claims it’s worse than heroin, opioids, or other drugs.
On August 4, Steve Hatfill, a veteran neurologist said that there are “53 studies that show positive results of hydroxychloroquine in COVID infections. There are 14 global studies that show neutral or negative results— and 10 of them were of patients in very late stages of COVID-19, where no antiviral drug can be expected to have much effect. Of the remaining four studies, two came from the same University of Minnesota author. The other two are from the faulty Brazil paper, which should be retracted and the fake Lancet paper, which was.”
Levin exclaimed that the report was unusual, and he discussed another article from Risch, the author of more than 300 peer-reviewed publications. In the article, which was published on July 23, Risch revealed that he is “usually accustomed to advocating for positions within the mainstream of medicine.”
The professor was shocked that, during the coronavirus pandemic, he is “fighting for a treatment that the data fully supports but which, for reasons having nothing to do with a correct understanding of the science, has been pushed to the sidelines. As a result, tens of thousands of patients with COVID-19 are dying unnecessarily. Fortunately, the situation can be reversed easily and quickly.”
When asked about his stance on the studies he reviewed and the use of HCQ for COVID-19, Risch reiterated that “the evidence is overwhelming.”
However, Risch mentioned a “massive disinformation campaign” about HCQ from the government to mainstream media that either suppresses the truth or covers it up with a false message.

HERE IT COMES!? MANDATORY VACCINATION “MUST BE ENFORCED ON ALL, BOTH SMALL AND GREAT, NO RELIGIOUS OR PERSONAL OBJECTIONS, PRISON FOR THOSE WHO TRY TO REFUSE,” SAYS DOCTOR GROUP–AND BIDEN HAS ALREADY AGREED TO MANDATE “WHATEVER THE SCIENTIST SAY!!!”
September 6, 2020
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that the commonly used steroid drugs dexamethasone, hydrocortisone and methylprednisolone can help to reduce the mortality rate from the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) by up to 33 percent.
This meta-analysis of numerous studies, collectively involving 1,700 patients, demonstrated that these cheap corticosteroid drugs, which suppress an overactive immune system by quelling inflammation, definitely help to reduce one’s risk of dying from the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).
The data is an “unambiguous win,” according to researchers, who say that such drugs should become “standard treatment” for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) based on their effectiveness.
“This to me feels like one of the first unambiguous wins in trying to combat COVID-19,” stated Derek C. Angus, a distinguished professor of critical care medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. Angus also helped lead the meta-analysis.
The results are particularly encouraging, according to Angus, because they show an unusual consistency across various types of steroid drugs within the same class. In other words, one of them seems to work just as well as another, suggesting they could be interchangeable for this specific use.
