Briefly Noted: Covid Testing, 'Trust' In Science, More

Yesterday there were reports out that the CDC is phasing out the PCR test for use in Covid testing. The PCR test is what fueled the casedemic and is known to be an inappropriate tool. Its inventor, recently deceased, publicly stated that it isn't a diagnostic tool and only increases false positives. You can read all about those problems here: Why Is The CDC Quietly Abandoning The PCR Test For COVID? Key paragraph:

So, in summary, with regard to our current "casedemic", positive tests as they are counted today do not indicate a “case” of anything. They indicate that viral RNA was found in a nasal swab. It may be enough to make you sick, but according to the New York Times and their experts, probably won’t. And certainly not sufficient replication of the virus to make anyone else sick. But you will be sent home for ten days anyway, even if you never have a sniffle. And this is the number the media breathlessly reports... and is used to fearmonger mask mandates and lockdowns nationwide...

So what gives? Well ... there's this:

The CDC's decision could potentially increase the value of the company acquired by Bill Gates and George Soros

Forbes explains that Global Access Health (GAH) is a joint initiative between “The Soros Economic Development Fund and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation” and explains that Mologic Ltd is “best known today for the deep-nostril technology used to deliver rapid COVID-19 tests.” The partnership between Gates and Soros to buy this company was announced on Monday, July 19, and the CDC’s decision to phase out PCR tests was announced Saturday, July 24.

Over the weeked the WSJ ran an interview with science writer Matthew Ridley:

From climate to Covid, politics and hubris have disconnected scientific institutions from the philosophy and method that ought to guide them.

The article, as usual, is behind a subscription wall, but Dr. Robert Malone helpfully provides the general idea. It's unexceptional, except that the growing distrust in science is increasingly spreading from a relative handfull of cognoscenti to the general public. Malone writes:

The scientific establishment has always had a tendency “to turn into a church, enforcing obedience to the latest dogma and expelling heretics and blasphemers.” This tendency was previously kept in check by the fragmented nature of the scientific enterprise.

In the age of social media, however, “the space for heterodoxy is evaporating.” So those who believe in science as philosophy are increasingly estranged from science as an institution. It’s sure to be a costly divorce.

"Increasing numbers of scientists “seem to fall prey to groupthink, and the process of peer-reviewing and publishing allows dogmatic gate-keeping to get in the way of new ideas and open-minded challenge.”

Replying to 

Saying "I believe in the science" is another way of saying "I believe in Groupthink"

Chris Roach writes on a related theme today--although I find the article to be uneven.

However, here are two related items that may set the stage for the Fall. We've seen several experts--such as Dr. Peter McCullough--warning that the problems with the "vaccines", and especially their apparent ineffectiveness against "variants" or mutations of the coronavirus, may lead to a rough Fall. The Establishment is aware of this, but they're trying to shift blame to the unvaxxed, whereas the reality is that this problem is arising because of the vax program. Thus Dr. Robert Malone cites the Israeli experience:

This explains why we're hearing about "boosters," but it also suggests something that the Establishment isn't saying--given the very short term effectiveness, are we looking at "jabs forever"? And that prospect, in turn, raises additional concerns. For example, experts such as Sucharit Bhakdi have maintained that repeated injection of these gene therapy medications is likely to increase the risk of side effects, which, according to many such as McCullough, are already at "astronomical" levels. And in that regard Dr. Marty Makary of Johns Hopkins, a highly regarded academic medical researcher, has publicly accused of CDC of hiding data on injuries and deaths from gene therapy injections: Johns Hopkins Doctor Marty Makary Accuses CDC of 'Sitting on Data' to Suit Their Narrative. Makary is certainly not the first to say this, but he has a bigger megaphone than most.

All the above needs to be considered in the light of the increasingly aggressive campaign by the Zhou regime to preemptively shift blame. As reported at Breitbart, and in the context of very limited duration of the gene therapies and very limited effectiveness against variants:

The Washington Post reported Saturday that Baidan officials are “increasingly anxious” about the pandemic in America “spiraling out of control” and threatening his agenda, which is why they are pushing their “vaccinations for all” mantra.
The spread of the delta variant and the rise of new cases are together only expected to increase in the Fall as well as deaths per day.

As a result, the regime is considering caving to the fanatics clamoring for punitive measures against much of the public, despite considerable and increasing public opposition to those measures. Trouble ahead?


  1. If Baidan officials cave into the fanatics on yet another issue, it will just hasten the end of their agenda, especially when most of the public is resigned to the virus floating around indefinitely and are sick of masks and lockdowns. Setting up a landslide for the next election cycle that even the Dem computers can't overrule!

    This is especially true with Rand Paul's confrontations with Falsie slowly gaining some publicity! (despite mass media ignoring it pretty much).

  2. Thomas Renz has filed a lawsuit claiming 45K Americans have died within 3-days after COVID JAB:

  3. Jabs forever? No way! As far as I am concerned, it is jabs NEVER!

    1. Sadly we are getting a 21st century lesson in what it must have felt like for the Pilgrims and others who fled to the New World from religious and political persecution.

      Problem...nowhere else to go.

    2. The bark is bigger than the bite. No one has come to my house yet to talk about the vax. I got $100 says they never will.
      I think they purposely try to rile up the patriots in an effort to get them to make a move they can jail them over. The key is to keep your mouth shut and your feelings bottled up. Wait for the right time.

    3. @anon2

      Smart. I wonder if it's too smart?

      Yes, no call to violence for sure. If we shut up and hide though, aren't we enabling the boiling frog effect? At what point is the proverbial line crossed? And what about peaceful civil disobedience? What is the threshold? Mandatory jabs? No travel, no public shopping without jabs? Vaxports?


  4. While Covid is occupying our so-called administration and our media, our top military are apparently leaving us exposed as they strive to get our servicepersons woke:

    From Monica Showalter:

    'Failed miserably' — Pentagon's wargame failure signals that the wokester generals are fighting the last wars

    The Pentagon's wokester generals, such as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, have touted Critical Race Theory as the military's focus and a great success story.

    The guy under him, though, didn't have such good news.

    According to DefenseOne (hat tip: Mickey Kaus):

    A brutal loss in a wargaming exercise last October convinced the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. John Hyten to scrap the joint warfighting concept that had guided U.S. military operations for decades.

    "Without overstating the issue, it failed miserably. An aggressive red team that had been studying the United States for the last 20 years just ran rings around us. They knew exactly what we're going to do before we did it," Hyten told an audience Monday at the launch of the Emerging Technologies Institute, an effort by the National Defense Industrial Association industry group to speed military modernization.

      Major fail. Wokeness will get you killed in many walks of life, but nowhere more quickly than in a war.
