I wasn’t sure how to start this blog about assumptions that are being accepted as fact during the COVID-19 pandemic. Then I read an article by Denis G. Rancourt entitled, “Masks Don’t Work: A review of science relevant to COVID-19 social policy.” That article compelled me to order his book called Hierarchy and Free Expression in the Fight Against Racism.
Here is what he said about how we are “engineered” to accept and believe many basic assumptions about our health and well-being:
Broad proscriptions [condemnation] presented as deriving from what are alleged to be axiomatic truths (i.e., truths that need not be demonstrated) are a common social engineering device. Active state and corporate support for these campaigns are typically applied to the most dangerous truths about the system.”
“… the mega-lie engineered and maintained by establishment medicine… is at the heart of how a dominance hierarchy is anchored on a primal level on our intrinsic human biology. Things are not as they appear. Even the things we believe about ourselves and our bodies are mostly wrong.”
Dominance Starts in the Womb
This entrenched dominance hierarchy is imposed upon us while we are still in the womb. The programming runs deep. Pregnant women are told they must have ultrasounds because their babies might be defective. Some are told they need amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling to uncover other types of defects. If various defects are discovered, abortion is often recommended, even pushed. Pregnant women are routinely given a large glucose load that most would never normally ingest. The purpose of the dose is to see if they have gestational diabetes. The establishment assumes that a significant percentage will have faulty metabolism and that they must all be tested to unmakes it in this unnatural way. Indeed, in many women, the test can induce the problem it is supposed to detect.
But that is not enough. Expecting women are also told that they must receive influenza and Tdap vaccines or their babies might die. They are told that these vaccines can improve the health of their babies… a dangerous mega-lie if ever I heard one.
Programming and engineering with similar intentions apply to labor and delivery and the immediate neonatal period. Think about what we do to women in labor and the newly born: artificial rupture of membranes, Pitocin induction, invasive fetal monitoring, antibiotics during labor for all women who have tested positive for Group B streptococcus, vitamin K shot, antibiotic eye drops (in case mother has an undiagnosed case of gonorrhea or chlamydia, even if the relevant diagnostic tests have been negative), newborn antibacterial baths, circumcision, hepatitis B vaccine, formula supplementation of the newborn.
Mothers are programmed with the presumption that their babies enter the world with numerous things wrong with them. They are told, and often assume, the Medical System is here to protect them, indeed to save their lives, with invasive routine procedures and drugs.
Born Without a Compass
Is it any wonder that many or us have no internal compass for guidance on how to take care of ourselves. This profound. engineered lack of confidence in our own ability to be healthy is instilled deep within us. We are literally born with it. If we are born within the conventional system, we are stripped of our natural birthright of self-confidence in our intrinsic robust health and wellness.
So now, in the midst of a pandemic, it’s not a surprise that so many are jumping on the bandwagon of masking and anxiously awaiting the vaccine panacea. Many are obsessive over sanitizing, social distancing, contact tracing, antiviral drugs, and the promise of vaccines. These measures are based on the axiomatic truths to which Rancourt refers, assumptions that are “grandfathered in” without being questioned. These assumptions form the basis for how we think and react in this time of crisis (or should I say, engineered crisis?).
So what are some of the assumptions that have been accepted without questioning?
Masks prevent the spread of the virus so we must all be good citizens and wear them. If we refuse, we are being selfish and inconsiderate of others.
It is astonishing to see the number of people walking around in masks. Masks are being worn even in places where they haven’t been “mandated.” The only reason is that authority figures have told people they must wear them. I have even seen nonsensical suggestions that masks should be worn when having sex.
In his above-mentioned article, Rancourt reviewed the science on the utility of masks in stopping the spread of viral illnesses and the consensus is that they are ineffective. Masks do not work to stop viruses because viruses are smaller than the pore size of the paper or fabric from which the masks are made. Most masks also have major gaps around the edges. These gaps would render them ineffective even if the pore size could retain viruses.
Dangers of Masks
Additionally, masks can cause problems by lowering the blood’s oxygen saturation level and by elevating blood CO2 levels. Here is a quote from a 2005 article documenting this and more:
Wearing N95 masks results in hypooxygenemia [low blood oxygen] and hypercapnia [increased carbon dioxide] which reduce working efficiency and the ability to make correct decision (sic). Medical staff are at increased risk of getting ‘Severe acute respiratory syndrome’ (SARS), and wearing N95 masks is highly recommended by experts worldwide. However, dizziness, headache, and short of breath (sic) are commonly experienced by the medical staff wearing N95 masks. The ability to make correct decision may be hampered, too.”
Masks are psychologically damaging as well. When our faces are covered, a major part of our humanity is hidden, including our ability to express and receive/interpret emotions. Feelings of joy, love, anger, fear, and sadness will be dampened and possibly eventually lost altogether if widespread masking continues. Up to 93% of our communication is non-verbal. Since recommendations to mask are not based on science they can therefore only be attributed to social engineering. Maybe “they” want us to lose our humanity.
Social distancing prevents the spread of the virus and will limit mortality.
Social distancing, the order to stay 6 feet apart from other people, is another nonsensical recommendation that has no basis in science. Are we really supposed to believe that viruses can travel 5 feet-11 inches from one person to another, but not 6 feet? From now on are we supposed to live in a world with stickers on the floor telling us where to stand and arrows on store floors telling us which direction to go down the aisles? As far as I can tell, this programming is supposed to get us used to relinquishing our freedoms: Stand where you are told and follow directions simply because they come from an authority figure, not because they make sense or have any basis in science. It is sad to see so many people apparently accepting that their immune systems are so defective that standing close to another person can bring about their demise.
We will remain in lockdown until a vaccine or is widely available.
We hear this story daily from mainstream media and it is a story that is rarely questioned. The idea that the only way out of this pandemic is a vaccine is based on two assumptions: 1. Vaccines are safe. 2. Vaccines are effective. They are neither, and there is plenty of evidence to back this assertion.
Fortunately the number of vaccine skeptics has increased greatly. Even some in the mainstream are questioning the wisdom of the “warp speed” with which the coronavirus vaccines are being developed, but this does receive much airtime. Vaccines are accepted as the gold standard and best solution to stop the pandemic, and infectious ailments in general.
Antiviral drugs such as Remdesivir also come with a host of problems including a list of side effects that include alteration of the human genome, and the possibility that it can cause resistant organisms. Not to mention the financial conflicts of interest surrounding it and its hefty projected price of about $1,000 per pill.
It is frustrating that we hear no attention being paid to health-promoting measures such as eating healthy, getting adequate sleep, lowering stress, exercising, and taking commonsense supplements such as vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin A, zinc, medicinal mushrooms, and colloidal silver.
COVID-19 is caused by a virus and viruses are our enemies.
This is the most controversial assumption that we can question. The whole basis for the pandemic is that a coronavirus, whether naturally occurring or engineered, is causing us to be sick… and any acute illness is a bad thing.
Some have questioned if there is even a virus. Dr. Andrew Kaufman has proposed that the particles seen under electron microscopy that are called viruses are actually exosomes, and that the are produced by our own cells when we are exposed to various stressors including radiation, infections, toxins, emotional stress and more. Kaufman states that he has analyzed the research on COVID-19 and that a definitive pathogen has not been identified.
Similar findings have been confirmed by a high-profile European pathologist who has reported that he and his colleagues across Europe have not found any evidence of deaths from the novel coronavirus on that continent. Dr. Stoian Alexov called the World Health Organization (WHO) a “criminal medical organization” for creating worldwide fear and chaos without providing objectively verifiable proof of a pandemic.
Another doctor, Dr. Zach Bush, has stated that viruses perform a beneficial function. They assist in human evolution and help humans advance as a species. Viruses can help us detox. Viruses can help us take that next evolutionary step. Instead of supporting viral “pathology,” however, we demonize the viral “attack.” It is a battle that ultimately cannot be won because we are surrounded by millions of viral particles at all times. In order to live in harmony in the world, we need to promote health and balance both in ourselves and the world.
What Will You Accept?
What assumptions do you accept as fact? And what assumptions do you challenge? The answers to these questions will be the determinants of our future, so ponder each premise carefully. Make wise decisions based on how you want to live the next few years of your life. Do you want a life of ongoing fear, lockdown, and restrictions? Or do you want a life of freedom and an ability to live a vibrant existence? My hope is for the latter.
