The FDA Botched Covid Testing in 2020. Nothing Has Changed Since Then.

01/25/2021Dave Albin

Ah, the covid-19 test results—much maligned by some and worshipped by others! As part of the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, the results of covid-19 tests are repeatedly blasted at us from many places, often with analysis. It is easy to understand why this is the case. News media and information outlets of all types can present the absolute numbers of positive tests and data trends, which are easy to find, and many viewers can seemingly grasp what’s happening and where. And people are concerned about the spread of a novel virus and what it might do to them, their families, and their communities. In short, this is information that people demand. As such, they will get it.

It’s important to understand the basics of the two main types of tests being used to detect the virus. First, a PCR test is used to amplify and detect the presence of a DNA segment that is highly specific to covid-19. Second, an antibody test is used to detect the presence of an antigen (often a specific protein) that is present on the outside of a pathogen like covid-19. Both of these tests take biological processes and manipulate them to detect the presence of something specific—in these cases, markers of covid-19. There’s nothing magical or sacred about what’s happening. Anyone with the supplies and proper training can run these tests and report findings. And, like with any analytical procedure, there are restrictions on what can be detected. False positives and false negatives are possible, detection levels have limits, and sampling technique affects the results. All of these can be examined to better define the accuracy of the results.

And, yet, as concerns about covid-19 were rapidly increasing, many people were without this vital information that they wanted. Why was this? In the US, the Food and Drug Administration has authority over all medical testing, and in times of emergency, what is known as emergency authorized use, or EUA, can be granted so that labs around the country can begin testing. However, due to bureaucracy and red tape, the FDA took weeks, rather than days, to grant EUAs (another way of saying that it was slow to give up a little authority) so that testing could begin. It was even reported that the FDA and state authorities instructed one lab to halt their plans of repurposing existing tests for covid-19 testing. (By the way, history is already being rewritten, so it seems.) Some labs reported being ready to give results, with validated testing protocols in hand, but being forced to wait due to the FDA’s slow response time. Thus, critical time was lost; people were flying blind for weeks as fear increased.

The purpose of the EUA process, and FDA oversight, is clear enough—to weed out poorly performing test providers. But there are big problems here: First, this assumes that FDA employees are experts at everything they are regulating, which cannot be the case. Second, if the oversight is faulty or results in unnecessary delays (as was the case with covid-19 testing), nothing happens. The FDA still has the same authority now that it had in 2019. Third, oversight with lab testing is largely meaningless without having regulators (assuming they understand the scientific basis for what’s being done) observing what’s happening in the lab. Reviewing documents or protocols is largely ceremonial if the “experts” don’t have a clear understanding of the procedures and, more importantly, if they are not in the labs with the technicians performing the tests. Who knows if the tests are being administered properly, or if, following employee turnover, a new staff member is poorly trained and improperly gives the tests? This last scenario cannot ever be tracked and controlled by regulators.

These regulatory challenges would have been much better addressed with private sector testing facilities competing for customers. In order for a testing lab to be chosen by eager customers, its results have to be meaningful—those that do not provide this will not be in business for long. 

In addition, a private testing system would have allowed quicker data sharing sooner (and the use of various platforms) and for testing to be conducted in a way that pleases customers. In some areas, the reporting would have been different, but ultimately it would have had to satisfy customers. And with something like a global pandemic, broader sharing of information would likely have been welcomed at first and might have changed later—the market could have decided over time. Competing evidence would even have served as an important quality control.

It’s a good bet that an approach like the one outlined here would have mediated the effects of the covid-19 pandemic. There’s no question (with the benefit of hindsight) that covid-19, and the response to it, was going to cause difficulty and suffering for many people. Lives have been lost, businesses and services derailed, and trust eroded. But, with the right information in hand, decision-making would have been improved. Trouble areas and practices could have been avoided. Personal risk could have been assessed more accurately. We could have understood what was happening sooner and worked to get through the covid-19 pandemic more quickly. Instead, we’re left with the same stagnant, bloated system that’s slow to respond—troubling because other pathogens are sure to arise in the future. We can’t afford to stumble in the darkness again.Author:

The PCR is a major problem but there are other problems that add to the total fiasco. I have read so many articles on virology that I feel I should get a degree in virology (But I digress)

The first thing one should look at, what is the gold standard for determining you have a virus and the one that is causing the disease. This has not been done. The virus has not been properly isolated and purified so we don’t even know what it is. It could be something other than a virus. And the FDA admits that:
“positive results do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease.

The authors of four of the principal, early 2020 papers claiming discovery of a new coronavirus concede they had no proof that the origin of the virus genome was viral-like particles or cellular debris, pure or impure, or particles of any kind. In other words, the existence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA is based on faith, not fact.

In the product descriptions of the RT-qPCR tests for SARS-COV-2 it says they are “qualitative” tests, contrary to the fact that the “q” in “qPCR” stands for “quantitative.” And if these tests are not “quantitative” tests, they don’t show how many viral particles are in the body. (Viral Load)

The CDC, the WHO, the FDA or the RKI may assert that the tests can measure the so-called “viral load,” i.e. how many viral particles are in the body. “But this has never been proven. That is an enormous scandal,”
Another critical problem is that many PCR tests have a “cycle quantification” (Cq) value of over 35, and some, including the FDA protocol has a CQ of 45.
The Cq value specifies how many cycles of DNA replication are required to detect a real signal from biological samples.
“Cq values higher than 40 are suspect because of the implied low efficiency and generally should not be reported,” as it says in the MIQE guidelines.
MIQE stands for “Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments”, a set of guidelines that describe the minimum information necessary for evaluating publications on Real-Time PCR, also called quantitative PCR, or qPCR.

The inventor himself, Kary Mullis, agreed, when he stated:

If you have to go more than 40 cycles to amplify a single-copy gene “there is something seriously wrong with your PCR.”

Last but certainly not least.
The numbers generated by these RT-PCR tests do not in the least justify frightening people who have been tested “positive” and imposing lockdown measures that plunge countless people into poverty and despair or even drive them to suicide.

And a “positive” result may have serious consequences for the patients as well, because then all non-viral factors are excluded from the diagnosis and the patients are treated with highly toxic drugs and invasive intubations. Especially for elderly people and patients with pre-existing conditions such a treatment can be fatal.
This information was taken from:… There is much more information on this farce.

TexasHeavenTexas • 2 days ago • editedThe PCR inventor, Kerry Mullis, died just before all this covid hysteria started and was unable to fulfill his dream: To debate Anthony Fauci because he thought Fauci was an a$$ h0l3. I can’t help but wonder what sort of censoring Mullis would have received in this milieu.So, here’s a rare opportunity that I will use the ‘someone I know personally told me so’ refrain. I could very well be lying as it’s just hearsay, but I will share it nonetheless.My cousin is indeed a microbiologist. I had a discussion with her back when all the ‘cases’ were skyrocketing in March/April. In that conversation she stated to me that any result from a PCR cycle threshold above 30 should be thrown out. When I learned more about the sensitivity/specificity of these tests, I contacted her again and told her that cycle thresholds were going up to 45. She could not fathom that and vehemently insisted that it could not be true because, and I quote, “Only an idiot would do that.”The CDC, WHO, FDA, NAIAD,ABC,XYZ, blah blah blah allowed/authorized/encouraged/condoned any cycle threshold, even up to 45. And labs took off testing like crazy ( some labs had nearly 100% positives) everywhere. ‘Cases’ skyrocketed. Cases were now redefined.So, would this have happened with ‘good test producers’? Yes, it would have. We could have had the BEST PCR test ever devised, but with bad specificity and sensitivity parameters, the test produced by the ‘good producers’ would have done the same $h!t. The goal was to ramp up cases. End of story.I don’t even know how we can compare any aspect of this to the free market. If there were a free market, none of this would be occurring. You have a higher risk of dying of ANYTHING in 12 months, than you have of dying of covid-19. Who is going to invest in that?


Really?? • a day ago

I recently took a class from a PhD microbiologist who currently works at the NSF dealing with COVID-19 issues. In her class, she explained that there are four different types of molecular tests for the RNA associated with COVID. They generally involve “reverse transcription” of a sample that converts RNA to DNA and then a process to make copies of the DNA for testing. The tests differ in the time it takes to process the sample and the temperature for the testing. The test acronyms are RT-PCR (the most common using a nasal swab), RPA, LAMP and CRISPR.

The presence of these tests don’t tell individuals what can be done if they test positive. For example, if a test shows that you are positive, the recommendation is to isolate oneself, just like many of us are already doing without any testing. Maybe, if one tests positive, a regimine of infusing monoclonal antibodies or Remdesivir COULD be administered. But, in the world we live in where vaccine distribution is utterly opaque and essentially random (try getting a vaccine if you don’t believe me) and hospital space is non existent, I suspect that getting pro-active treatment in the form of infusions will be limited to giverment big wigs and not available to the general public.

No testing method for Covid has never undergone long term trials to even see if it is adequate and can provide meaningful results. These tests were allowed on an emergency basis only and are highly suspect concerning their ability to provide a true result. Furthermore, both injectable gene therapy solutions were created using algorithms designed to replicate what a possible Covid particle or germ might be like. No actual virus protein has been discovered or was used to create these gene therapy protocols. Pfizer and Moderna have admitted to such.

The gene therapies are all guesswork. Thus, how can we have testing for a virus/protein that has yet to be isolated and identified and then purified to give exact results? It’s a total sham all the way around. The fake pandemic was created and suddenly we had any number of solutions and forthcoming vaccines (all fake, mind you) before this thing was isolated and really understood by the medical community. We still have, after a year of Covid, flip-flopping by Fauci, the CDC, FDA and WHO on all aspects of this fake pandemic and fake virus.

It wasn’t true initially. Many PCR tests for Covid-19 were being developed and refined, but when they were ready, the bureaucrats moved too slowly. Dave’s link to The Atlantic in the article is a good reminder of March frustration for who haven’t already read it. Another good review is here.

These regulatory challenges would have been much better addressed with private sector testing facilities competing for customers. In order for a testing lab to be chosen by eager customers, its results have to be meaningful—those that do not provide this will not be in business for long.

Like Theranos? But we didn’t have a decade to sort it out. Like the $20M of commercial test kits purchased by Britain that didn’t work? Even in the United States, a lot of early commercial antibody testing (not PCR) was worthless.

The important thing to remember is that when we did have the tools to fight on the defensive, we laid them down and surrendered.

PCR tests amplify DNA. It’s true that some PCR testing protocols begin with RNA, but it is converted to DNA before the PCR step. This is RT-PCR. There’s also real-time PCR which amplifies a DNA segment in real-time. It gets confusing because this can also be called RT-PCR.
It’s also true that there was a time lag as PCR testing became developed. However, it’s likely that a “good enough” PCR protocol was developed early on when people were screaming for some information. You could quickly develop a PCR test that will pick up a few coronoviruses, including COVID-19, and use this approach to determine hot spots. This is really what people wanted – just some idea of where things were bad. Not perfection. But, as I wrote in the article, with this and more advanced testing, the FDA stood in the way at one of the worst possible times.

Yes. Reverse transcriptase first. You wrote:

First, a PCR test is used to amplify and detect the presence of a DNA segment that is highly specific to covid-19.

There are people in the comments section laboring under the misapprehension that human DNA could create a false positive Covid-19 RT-PCR test. (Hi Eiji.)

It’s also true that there was a time lag as PCR testing became developed. However, it’s likely that a “good enough” PCR protocol was developed early on when people were screaming for some information.

Agreed. The German protocol published in January, for example.

You could quickly develop a PCR test that will pick up a few coronoviruses, including COVID-19, and use this approach to determine hot spots.

Not a good strategy. We already had RT-PCR for “a few coronaviruses”. Coronavirus 229E, Coronavirus HKU1, Coronavirus NL63 and Coronavirus OC43 were on viral respiratory panels. They were worthless and caused the kind of confusion in January and February expected in people that don’t understand how RT-PCR testing works.

This is really what people wanted – just some idea of where things were bad. Not perfection. But, as I wrote in the article, with this and more advanced testing, the FDA stood in the way at one of the worst possible times.

The FDA, CDC and federal government did not act with the speed required by the situation. The Red Dawn email chain documents the disbelief of physicians and scientists who realized what was happening. The article linked in my first post notes that problems continued as late as March.

It is not true that “nothing has changed” since this scandal. It was, however, a terrible start.

​Hello friends,

Welcome to Earth Shift Webinar 16: The Karma & Future of Europe. This is the second webinar in the last and final series 4: Lada Ray Future Prophecies & Predictions!

In ESW16 we discuss how the current rebalancing and Inverted Collapse touches Europe, how the karmic debt of Europe, the loss of freedoms, as well as the neo-liberal globalism and plain confusion will influence the future of Western, Northern, Southern and Central Europe. I will perform a number of NEW live quantum calibrations and I’ll share my top NEW prophecies and predictions for, EU, UK and Europe. 

I’ll also answer 11 questions asked by the participants – this is a special perk for Lada Ray Patreon members. Instead of a separate Q&A section, in this series, the Q&A is worked into the main narrative. 

Webinar 16 consists of several parts and a number of valuable written bonuses! The bonuses include my articles written exclusively for this webinar, where I share the in-depth insight and prophecies! 

In this webinar we focus on the EU as a whole, UK, western, southern, northern and central Europe. Eastern Europe, ex-Soviet space and Russia proper will be addressed in Webinar 18! In this webinar I’ll also address the future of EU and Europe’s relations with Russia, ex-Soviet space, China, UK and USA.  

This webinar is a little different from ESW15: The Future of the US, after elections…
First, its scope is not one, but about 30 countries, comprising Europe, the richest continent on our planet! We touch upon Europe, EU and all its regions, plus a large number of countries individually, including Germany, UK, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, France, Switzerland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia, the Balkans in general, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova, Pridnestrovie, as well as the countries outside of the European space! This includes case studies and calibrations!

This made the webinar in question substantially longer and the narrative ended up being about 4.5 hours. I am still keeping the price at the same affordable level, but I’ve decided to make some of the parts written. I also decided that it would be more logical and beneficial if, while listening, you see the European and regional maps and other relevant images, instead of me. I though that would be more appropriate due to how many various countries and regions we are touching upon, so that you could easily find these countries and their position in the world. Therefore, this webinar is not ft. Lada Ray: it is my audio narration, with maps and images onscreen. 

In this webinar I have also endeavored a number of pure experiments, including a large number of live quantum calibrations of the future freedoms and present karmic weight of Europe, EU and its parts. The calibrations serve as an anchor for my predictions and your more precise understanding of the ideas and prophecies expressed in this one-of-a-kind webinar!

To understand the future, we must first understand the past. In ESW16 we are comparing the Inverted collapse of the USSR and what happened to the Soviet Bloc/E. Europe in 1980s-1990s to what is happening today to the US and EU. The comps I give you in this webinar will substantially deepen and broaden your understanding. 

I am also making certain predictions and look into both history and what I foresee, as answers to some questions by participants. All this is done live; I deliberately didn’t focus on some of these things ahead of time, so my futurist Akashic Records visit is as pure and as authentic as possible! 

PROPHECY: Each webinar of Series 4 of Earth Shift Webinars includes special LADA RAY FUTURE PROPHECIES!
WHEN WILL THE EU FALL APART! As part of the my Main Video-Written Prophecy, I also give you some very valuable future dates and timeframes for this event, as well as many others! 

Without further ado, let’s dive in!​

SARS-CoV-2 has not been proven to exist. The shocking research of Christine Massey

by Jon Rappoport

You can view the work of Christine Massey at her site, fluoridefreepeel[dot]ca. She deserves the thanks of every thinking person.
Quoting Massey: “I (CM), along with some anonymous helpers, have submitted Freedom of Information requests to various Canadian institutions seeking records that describe the isolation of ‘SARS-COV-2’ (the alleged ‘COVID-19 virus’) from an unadulterated sample taken from a diseased patient.
“My requests were intentionally worded to weed out the fraudulent, illogical and unscientific claims of having ‘isolated SARS-COV-2’, of which there are many…”
“My requests were not limited to records of isolation performed by the respective institution, and not limited to records authored by the respective institution, rather they were open to records of isolation performed by anyone, anywhere on the planet.”
“Colleagues in numerous other countries have obtained responses to the same and similar information requests from dozens of additional institutions.”
“As of January 22, 2021 46 institutions and offices have responded to said requests. Every institution has failed to provide, or cite, even 1 record describing the actual isolation of any ‘SARS-COV-2’ from a patient sample by anyone, anywhere on the planet, ever.”
Here is a typical response to a Massey request, from the Ontario Ministry of Health. The response arrived after four months: “This is to inform you that no responsive records were located. A reasonable search of the ministry was conducted, and no responsive records were found. Dr. David C. Williams, Chief Medical Officer of Health, is responsible for this decision.”
NO records indicating SARS-CoV-2 has been isolated. “Isolated” means “separated from other material.” It means “we actually found the virus and could identify it.”
When, as Massey indicates, 46 separate agencies say the same thing—“no records of isolation available”—we are past wondering what is going on. We’re firmly in the territory of FRAUD.
As I’ve stated many times, virologists are twisting and torturing the meaning of the word “isolated.” They claim they have the virus in a soup in a dish in the lab. “In a soup” is the very opposite of “isolated.”
The soup contains animal and human cells, toxic chemicals and toxic drugs, and other genetic material. Some of the cells are dying. The researchers preposterously state the dying must be the result of the virus attacking these cells.
However, the chemicals and drugs could be doing the killing. And the human and animal cells are being starved of nutrients—which fact alone is enough to cause them to die.
Therefore, there is no evidence that the purported (and un-isolated) virus is in the soup in the dish in the lab.
This “proof of isolation” is on the level of claiming the sun is the moon, Alaska is a small town on Saturn, and a rabbit is a spaceship.
It’s no accident that Christine Massey’s relentless investigation has turned up zero records of actual isolation.

America in the Post-Freedom Era

by Jeff Thomas

In June of 2015, Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president of the US.

At that time, his candidacy was looked upon as a joke, and indeed, well into the campaign in 2016, both Democrat and Republican politicians treated a win by Mister Trump as a ridiculous impossibility.

Yet, at that time, I predicted that he’d win, as I believed that he would become an ideal tool for the Ruling Elite in their pursuit of far greater objectives than a mere presidency.

It was clear at the time that Mister Trump was a textbook narcissist who would seek maximum attention for himself whilst in office and would want all events to centre on himself on a daily basis. Conservatives would be encouraged by his bluster, whilst liberals would burst a blood vessel over his incessant posturing.

The reason for my belief was history. In 1928, Herbert Hoover, a millionaire businessman who had never previously held elected office was elected as the US president. He was set up by the ruling elite as a patsy – the guy who would take the fall for causing the crash that would occur in 1929.

It worked. Those who were responsible for creating the unmanageable debt prior to the 1929 crash could not only pass the blame to their sucker-president; they would also be left with an electorate that was so angry over the crash and resultant economic crisis that, in 1932, the elite were able to usher in an all-encompassing Democratic win.

The Democrats took both houses of Congress and the presidency in that election. Franklin Roosevelt, a banker and Wall Street insider, was presented as the friend of the little man. He promised to turn his back on his wealth, his business partners and family and institute a host of policies that would assist those in need… collectivist policies that would, in fact, help to enslave those whom he claimed to be assisting.

The electorate loved Mister Roosevelt, as they saw him as their personal saviour. The Ruling Elite understood that Mister Roosevelt was creating a regime of increased government control through which they, the Elite, would more greatly dominate the populace.

The anger over Mister Hoover and his capitalist principles was so great amongst the electorate that Mister Roosevelt effectively became president for life. And Democrats held both houses of government for twenty years. Only the post-war prosperity broke their hold in 1952.

In 2016, my belief was that we would see a repeat of this history. Mister Trump would be the buffoon who, by virtue of his own ego, would be in place when the crisis began in 2020. At that time, COVID was nowhere on the horizon, but it has since then served as a perfect cover for the economic crisis that is presently under way.

When I first wrote on this prediction, just after the 2016 election, there could be no way to know for certain to what degree the Great Depression playbook would be repeated, but we now know that opposition to the Trump presidency, whether justified or not, has succeeded in polarising Americans to a greater degree than any election since 1860.

America is now at war with itself and the stage has been set for a lurch into collectivism, courtesy of the latest version of a Roosevelt presidency.

So, what does that mean?

Well, if the prognostication is correct – if those who rule the US from behind the scenes do intend to pick up where the Roosevelt presidency left off, and usher in collectivism – we shall soon get a look at how the ruling elite intend to roll out the plan.

President Joe Biden has already made several references to his role as being temporary, stating that if he disagrees with his vice president, he actually plans to step aside and even that he may “develop some disease and have to resign.”

It would not be surprising if the intent from the beginning was that Mister Biden was a shill who would pass the ball to a hard-hitting replacement – one who could not otherwise have been sold to the American people.

Kamala Harris dropped out of the presidential race in December of 2019, as she was only able to attract 2.8% of the Democratic vote. And as Democrats represent about half the electorate, that translates into about 1.4% of support from the American people.

Yet, supported or not, we may very well soon see a Harris regency presidency. As her reputation has been that of an aggressive far-leftist, her leadership promises to take the US far more quickly in a collectivist direction than Mister Biden might have.

But isn’t there a flaw in this presumption?

If the ruling elite, who run the show behind the scenes, are made up of bankers, Big Pharma, the military-industrial complex and Wall Street, aren’t they the country’s foremost capitalists? Wouldn’t they be opposed to a collectivist regime?

The answer is no. And to understand this, we can again look at history. In 1917, Wall Street funded Leon Trotsky in his move to defeat the Mensheviks in Russia and install Bolshevik rule. That funding made possible the Lenin/Trotsky regime.

In the 1930s Wall Street funded another form of collectivism – fascism – in Germany. The near-penniless Nazis received all the capital they needed to create a military intended to take over all of Europe.

What we can take away from history is that for those who are at the top level of rule – above the more visual but ultimately disposable politicians – the central objective is control. Create a powerful government from which all things flow. Debase the populace so that they have neither the economic power nor the ambition to think for themselves and take control of their own lives.

Subjugate the masses as completely as possible. Thereafter, the acquisition of wealth is a no-brainer. Those who possess totalitarian rule control the economy and all wealth that may be derived from it.

Regardless of whether collectivism is called socialism, communism, fascism or any other new “ism” that may in future be concocted, it’s the key to domination. Once a people depend entirely upon their government for all that they receive, they quickly learn to submit to whatever is demanded of them, no matter how extreme.

And so, in 2021, the groundwork has been laid for a major transformation of the US and, indeed, quite a few other countries that have followed a similar path.

We shall see a number of measures passed under the new rule that provide the populace with such “benefits” as debt forgiveness, universal basic income, greater privileges for minorities, etc.

However, these benefits will carry a price tag. There will be Immunity Passports, direct debit taxation, criminalised self-expression, a militarised police state and a host of other losses to freedom.

The greatest of these may well be heralded in through a constitutional review, which will be touted as seeking to answer the “inequities and shortcomings” of the 1787 Constitution but may end in a wholesale loss of “inalienable” rights.

However this plays out, it’s likely that 2021 will later be looked back upon by historians as the beginning of the Post-Freedom Era.

Editor’s Note: There’s no question the elite are eager to promote policies like negative interest rates, the abolition of cash and more.

Five ways to loosen Big Tech’s grip on your life

January 25, 2021
Bahia Beach, Puerto RicoI imagine there are countless people right now who feel a wide range of emotions when it comes to Big Tech companies. Anger. Disgust. Confusion. Fear.We’ve watched with exasperation as Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. have systematically squashed intellectual dissent; their actions have been so commonplace that there’s even a name for it: “De-platforming”.
We all know there’s a ton of garbage on the Internet, including from mainstream sources.
But de-platforming has proven to be wholeheartedly biased, totally arbitrary, and often comically ridiculous.
This isn’t just about the election or the Capitol. For example, if you dare utter a word on social media that goes against the infinite and infallible wisdom of the Chinese-controlled World Health Organization, then you might find yourself banned.
YouTube even suspended a renowned epidemiologist– a bona fide pandemic expert– because he opposed lockdowns and was hence ‘dangerous’.
Facebook censored more than 22 million posts in Q2 of 2020 for ‘hate speech’. Naturally, its entirely up to Facebook to define hate speech and judge whether or not you’re using it.
#killallmen, for example, is NOT considered hate speech. And even by the company’s own admission, hate speech against men, or white people, is a low priority.
It’s clear these companies have an enormous amount of unchecked power. They have the ability to erase you from the Internet, destroy your reputation, and, if you’re someone who makes money online, terminate your livelihood.
But the only reason they have this power is because we’ve given it to them. Hundreds of millions of people have intertwined their entire lives into the Big Tech ecosystem, to the point that they know absolutely everything about us.
People post practically every detail of their lives on Instagram. They tell Zuckerberg what they like and dislike on their Facebook profiles. They tell Jack Dorsey what they believe in on their Twitter feeds.
They give Google free license to spy on every single email that’s sent or received; Google even keeps track of the things that you buy, archiving receipts from online purchases in your inbox and aggregating all of it into your advertising profile.
Through its Maps, Drive, and Calendar applications, Google has access to our schedule, our location, and our confidential files.
They know what we’re searching for. They know what we’re saying. They know what we’re doing.
And at a certain point, a rational human being might be compelled to say “enough is enough”. How can anyone possibly trust these people with their data anymore?
The good news is that there are tons of solutions.
In fact, distancing yourself from the Big Tech companies is one of the easiest ways you can declare your own independence and regain a bit of freedom and security. Below I outline a few options to consider:
1. Absolutely use a VPN
Your device, whether your mobile phone, laptop, or even smart TV, has an IP address, and it’s something that the tech companies use to track you.
Whenever you go to Google’s homepage to search for something, for example, Google already knows it’s you.
And many websites around the Internet will track you by IP address, often sharing this information with Google, Facebook, etc.
Using a VPN helps create anonymity online because you’re no longer accessing those websites from your own IP address.
Right now, for example, even though I’m sitting at home in Puerto Rico, I’m using a VPN service and accessing the Internet through a server in Panama. So any website I visit thinks that I’m in Panama.
There are several VPN providers which, as a policy, do NOT keep logs of their customers’ activities, including VyprVPN and NordVPN.
2) Change your search engine
There’s more to the world than Google search, and plenty of other search engines exist which won’t spy on you. Among them– DuckDuckGo, which is based in the United States, and SwissCows, which is based in Switzerland.
3) Change your web browser
If you use Google Chrome, chances are pretty good that your browser is constantly feeding data back to the mother ship. Everywhere you go on the Internet, Chrome is telling Google about it.
But there are plenty of other browsers out there which are far more privacy oriented. “Brave” is one such browser; it’s open-source, which means that its source code is freely available. And it is automatically set up to block trackers and ads to help protect your privacy.If you do those three things: VPN, change your search engine, and change your browser, you will take a giant leap forward in distancing yourself from Big Tech.
Those three steps will make it much more difficult for Facebook and Google to track you. But here are a few more to consider:
4) Consider more privacy-oriented chat applications
In a couple of weeks, WhatsApp (which is owned by Facebook) will force all users to accept its new privacy policy. Among other things, this means that ALL of your contacts will be shared with Zuckerberg.
There are better options– like Signal. Signal is ultra-secure, built for privacy, and its source code is open source. There are versions for iOS, Android, PC, Mac, and Linux.
5) Ditch Gmail
You might think that Gmail is free, but you’re paying for it with your personal data.
Google’s algorithms automatically scan every incoming email and mine data about you, all of which ends up in your advertising profile.
There are plenty of other services to use, free and paid. If you’re interested in encryption and security, you might consider Switzerland-based ProtonMail, or Iceland-based CTemplar.
There are endless possibilities to reduce Big Tech influence in your life, and these suggestions barely scratch the surface.
More advanced readers might ditch their operating system altogether for an open-source Linux distribution, or even load a custom ROM on their phone to replace Google’s Android.
For now, start small. These suggestions above are easy steps to get started, and they’ll make a huge difference.
To your freedom……….

Biden’s ‘Unity’… By War?

By Finian Cunningham

January 22, 2021 “Information Clearing House” – President Joe Biden beseeched his nation this week for unity. In his inaugural address Wednesday the word “unity” was repeated over and over.

And, understandably, well he may make such an urgent appeal. Because the United States is a bitterly divided house between seemingly irreconcilable factions. Former Republican president Donald Trump didn’t even show up for his successor’s inauguration – the first time that such a snub has happened in nearly 150 years.

Many of Trump’s supporters among the 74 million who voted for him are convinced that the election was stolen by the Democrats. Biden’s  call for unity is scoffed at by these people who denounce him as a “Marxist”. (That’s a ludicrous description of Biden, an arch capitalist and imperialist, but that’s what they believe.)

For Democrats, many of those on the other side of the house are crazy white supremacists, fascists and “domestic terrorists” who need “reprogramming”. That’s a broad brush too, although the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, QAnon cult, and so on, might certainly qualify for such designation.

Anyway, Biden’s going to need a mountain-load of luck to unify such internecine perceptions and passions. And it should be said too that the Democrats bear a big responsibility for the dire state of affairs. It can’t be all blamed on “Trump the demagogue”. For nearly four years, the Democrats and their media networks relentlessly undermined the Trump presidency and his 2016 mandate by peddling absurd claims about “Russia collusion”. So it’s a bit rich for President Biden to now appeal to the nation for “unity” and “healing”.

The United States is facing an existential crisis over bitter internal divisions. If unity of the nation cannot be restored then the legitimacy of governance is at stake.

Biden alluded to this precarious predicament in his inaugural speech with repeated and somewhat desperate calls for unity.No Advertising – No Government Grants – This Is Independent MediaGet Our Free NewsletterDon’t let an Algorithm choose what you read!

He said: “We can join forces, stop the shouting and lower the temperature, for without unity there is no peace, only bitterness and fury. No progress, only exhausting outrage. No nation, only a state of chaos… This is our historic moment of crisis and challenge, and unity is the path forward.”

So if unity is absent, he warns, there is “no nation, only a state of chaos”. That thought is the stuff of nightmares for the political class in America and the oligarchy of super wealthy.

How is this precious “unity” to be found by the political class?

This is where the danger of intensified American imperialism and foreign wars rears its ugly head again.

By starting a war with some designated “foreign enemy”, the US ruling class will gamble that such a move can “unify” the country in “patriotic duty” and rallying around the flag. A war would defuse the explosive internal problems of excruciating economic inequality, partisan divisions and alienation from the governing institutions.

The historical record does not bode well. Out of its nearly 245 years of existence as a state, it is estimated that the US has been at war for over 90 per cent of the time. Virtually every one of the past 45 presidents have launched or continued an existing war. This gives a risible context for Trump attempting to congratulate himself as “a president who did not start any new wars”. Yeah, it’s that rare, it’s almost a virtue, although it wasn’t for the lack of trying by Trump with regard to Iran and China.

As the 46th president, Biden has the odds stacked in favor of war, if historical pattern is anything to go by.

Also, there is Biden’s own personal record as a Senator and Vice President who enthusiastically supported wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria, among others. Can he really change his warmongering habit this late in life?

Furthermore, his new cabinet taking shape is full of holdovers from the Obama administrations who were big proponents of regime-change wars as well as aggressive policy towards Russia and China.

People like Antony Blinken who is nominated to be Secretary of State; Victoria Nuland who fomented the 2014 coup d’état in Ukraine; and Avril Haines who was former deputy director at the CIA associated with advocating drone assassinations.

Biden’s team may have politically correct “diversity” in appearance and be fluent in liberal-sounding lexicon. But it is shaping up to be hawkish on war and American imperialism – all in the cynical cause of “noble principles” and “world leadership”, of course.

During confirmatory hearings this week in the Senate, Blinken and Haines both spoke about confronting China and Russia, expressing approval of aggressive policy. This was while Biden was pleading with the nation for “unity”.

The more desperate the need for unity to salvage the United States, the more likely is the danger of war serving for that very purpose.

If the American people and the rest of the world think that getting rid of Trump means a return to normal, they better think again. Because “normal” for the US ruling class is war. And especially so at a time of internal crisis.

Situation Update, Jan 21, 2021 – The astonishing case for optimism and faith

Health Ranger Report with Mike Adams

(Natural News) After the staged, theatrical Biden inauguration yesterday that carries no legitimate legal standing whatsoever, people lost their minds as they fell for the spell of the fake news media that broadcast the Big Lie, in Hunger Games style.

Many patriots lashed out against podcasters and independent media outlets who have been operating in good faith to cover pathways of overturning the fraud. Sadly, attacks were aimed at SGT Report, X22 Report, RedPill78, Lin Wood, Scott McKay, Scott Kesterson and others.

None of those people deserve such attacks. They all operated with good faith and repeatedly explained that events may not occur on our desired timeline.

The solution for moving forward is to pull together as patriots and pursue actions that lead to victory, not turn on each other and start casting blame in all directions.

Kesterson has the right answer in all this, which is to have faith in God and the Constitution. Prepare for all worst case scenarios (as I’ve repeatedly said), but also be ready for miracles and unexpected victories that may have been planned long ago by Trump and his team.

My message today is: This is not over. Biden is an illegitimate, fake president. He wasn’t even flown in yesterday on a government plane and had to charter his own. The Pentagon is reportedly refusing to cooperate with him, and that may be a strong sign of things yet to come.

Trump and his family members promised, “The best is yet to come!” and appear to have knowledge of chess moves yet to be seen.

The US Constitution provides the military a mechanism to halt an illegal overthrow attempt by enemy forces controlling domestic puppets, and all military personnel swear an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.

Do not lose faith in God, country and Trump so easily.

You have not been abandoned. Rather, you are being brought to bear witness to the unfolding of historic events.

Freedom cannot be cherished until you believe you have lost it.

Faith cannot be proven authentic until it is expressed during the most hopeless and dire circumstances.

Rebirth is not a comfortable experience. It’s scary. Yet the way we choose to handle these events tells a lot about our inner character and our real courage and determination.

Stay determined. Demand action from your states to halt the Biden regime’s reign of terror over America. Organize at the local level to defend your communities and your freedoms.

Understand there are numerous solutions still available, including legal options to expose the fraud. Election ballots must be saved for 22 months, which means the absolute proof of the Biden election fraud exists right now, stored in physical boxes in rooms across America. In those rooms are found the keys to overturning the fraud, and the way to get to those boxes is through the application of law.

This is why the censorship is ramping up even now, after Biden was shown to be inaugurated in a fake ceremony: Dems need to cover up their crime for the next 22 months to completely get away with it.

Our job is to make sure they don’t get away with it, and we all need to run delay and defense tactics at the state level to block their malicious agendas from doing much damage.

This is not the time to surrender in despair, it is the time to double down on faith and fortitude. The future belongs to those with courage and determination, not those who throw in the towel when a certain event doesn’t go their way.

Even if Joe Biden is the “president,” he’s only the president of a failed, bankrupt, collapsing entity that has already lost the consent of the governed and the consent of most of the military. The Biden regime can only stay in power under the brute force threat of a police state combined with brutal online censorship to enforce the lies of the Left.

Those totalitarian measures will sooner or later fail. We may suffer for a while, but we will defeat tyranny in due course.

Share your spirit of resistance against tyranny and join the effort to take our Constitutional republic back from those who are seeking to destroy it.

Situation Update, Jan. 18, 2021 – Game-changing intel grants Trump new pathways to VICTORY

Monday, January 18, 2021 by: Mike Adams
Tags: deep stateinaugurationJoe Bidennational securityPatriot missilesPresident TrumprevolutionriotsuprisingWashington DCWhite House

(Natural News) Because of the increasing popularity of the Situation Update podcast, information came my way that lays out a path for justified optimism on what’s coming in the days ahead.

As I say in the podcast, “I now know what Lin Wood knows.” This statement does not in any way imply that Lin Wood is the source of this information, because he isn’t. It’s just that Lin Wood’s unfettered optimism now makes total sense to me.

As Scott Kesterson recently said in his Bards FM podcast, the DC military encampment is actually a holding facility for enemies of America, and it will soon host military tribunals.

Once that happens, the radical Left will engage in Chinese weapons-augmented kinetic attacks on the US Capitol. These are not attacks by Chinese troops, but rather by radicalized Leftists — long since radicalized by the left-wing media — wielding weapons which have been smuggled into the United States by the CCP. Those weapons include:

  • Full-auto drop-in trigger upgrades for AR-15 and AK-47 rifles. (Some of these shipments have already been interdicted by Customs and Border Protection, as we have previously covered. See one press release from the CBP here.)
  • RPGs (Rocket-Propelled Grenades, used by enemy forces to attack fortified positions or armored vehicles.)
  • 60mm mortars, allowing attacking enemy forces to theoretically strike the Capitol Building or White House through indirect fire from range. These are known in the modern military as M224 mortars, which reportedly have a range of several thousand meters.
  • Rifle suppressors, which allow more covert operations by enemy forces.
  • Club-K concealed rockets and missile systems, hidden on standard shipping containers and boasting ranges of a few miles to 100+ miles, depending on the weapon.

In today’s Situation Update, I warn that if these missile systems are deployed, their most likely targets will be US power grid infrastructure and military installations. China may even attempt to detonate an EMP weapon over North America to take down the national power grid. Just in case this happens, be prepared to survive in a grid-down scenario (and pray it doesn’t happen).

As early as 2016, China was showing off its “Club-K” shipping container missile and rocket systems, which conceal remotely fired weapons in standard 40 ft. shipping containers:

These systems, which receive targeting and activation commands via satellite, may also be deployed from the surface containers of large shipping vessels, launching from several hundred miles offshore:

According to scattered sources who are emailing eyewitness reports from across America, many shipping containers are mysteriously appearing in locations across America where they previously were never seen. Note that these missile systems can be fired from containers sitting in parking lots, or still attached to transport trucks or rail systems.

This may explain why Patriot missile batteries are reportedly being spotted in Georgia and Tennessee, and Patriot missiles are now widely known to be deployed in the DC area.

Patriot missiles are ground-to-air defensive missile systems. They are deployed when the military anticipates incoming missiles or aircraft-based attacks.

Notably, patriot protesters do not possess jet fighters or cruise missiles. This indicates that Chris Miller at the DoD is anticipating a sophisticated attack on DC, including air-to-ground weapons of some sort, possibly including missiles or rockets as shown above.

And why would such an attack be unleashed against DC? Because DC is being turned into a detainment / holding encampment to hold all the thousands of traitors who committed treason against the United States. Thus, the now 40,000+ troops, F-16 fighter jets, Stryker vehicles, Patriot missiles and everything else is actually in place to defend DC against a kinetic overthrow attempt by the shock troops of the radical Left, who are augmented by CCP weapons.

Here’s what a patriot missile battery looks like:

We are also getting reports that US Marines (full-time soldiers) are being deployed to the DC area, which means this has moved way beyond National Guard troops (“weekend warriors”).

Trump declassifies all FBI documents in Russia probe

By John Solomon

January 16, 2021 “Information Clearing House” –   WASHINGTON, D.C. According to Fox Business News Lou Dobbs who today interviewed John Solomon, who was formerly an executive and editor-in-chief at The Washington Times, the remaining FBI documents on Russian collusion have been declassified and could be released as soon as Monday.

Solomon, an award-winning investigative journalist, said that the entire narrative of Trump Collusion was created and leaked to the news media to neutralize Hillary Clinton’s concern that her email scandal had not gone away. 

Solomon also said while confirming to Dobbs, that indeed “he can confirm” that the President has delivered, “in a big way” on one of his last remaining promises; to authorize the release of what he said is more than a “foot high stack of documents” – those which are the ones he said the FBI has tried to keep from the public for four years.

Delivering in his final days on one of his last unfulfilled promises, President Trump is declassifying a massive trove of FBI documents showing the Russia collusion story was leaked in the final weeks of the 2016 election in an effort to counteract Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.

The memos to be released as early as Friday include FBI interviews and human source evaluation reports for two of the main informants in the Russia case, former MI6 agent Christopher Steele and academic Stefan Halper.

The president authorized the release of a foot-high stack of internal FBI and DOJ documents that detail significant flaws in the investigation and provide a detailed timeline of when the FBI first realized the Steele dossier was problematic, multiple government officials told Just the News.No Advertising – No Government Grants – This Is Independent MediaGet Our Free NewsletterDon’t let an Algorithm choose what you read!

Among the bombshell revelations is an admission by Steele that he violated his confidential human source agreement with the FBI and leaked information from his dossier to the news media in the final weeks of the election because he wanted to counteract new revelations in the Hillary Clinton email scandal that were hurting her election efforts. The former foreign intelligence officer made the confession in a fall 2017 interview with agents.

Steele, who was hired by Clinton’s campaign law firm to compile anti-Trump dossiers attempting to link Trump to Russian influence, told agents he had two clients at the time — Clinton and the FBI — and chose the interests of the Democratic candidate over the bureau in leaking.

Steele told the bureau that then-FBI Director James Comey’s decision to reopen the Clinton email probe in fall 2016 triggered him to leak his dossier details in what he described as a taking-the-gloves-off moment.

The FBI interview summary makes clear that Steele, a British citizen, was allegiant to Clinton, did not like Trump and believed a Trump presidency would be negative for his homeland and thus made a decision to meddle in the U.S. election by leaking information to the news media.

The leaks, which led to Steele’s termination as an FBI informant, have been known for more than a year, but his motivation for leaking was hidden in the classified documents.

His admission that the Russia collusion narrative, later debunked by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, was injected into the public as a means of counteracting Clinton’s email scandal corroborates other information obtained by the CIA.

Late last year, the Trump administration declassified evidence showing the CIA warned President Obama and the FBI that it had intercepted intelligence indicating Hillary Clinton had personally ordered up an operation to “vilify” Trump with a false story of collusion as a means of distracting from the negative publicity of her email scandal.

Multiple investigations have concluded that much of Steele’s dossier was debunked or never corroborated by the FBI and likely contained Russian disinformation planted with his sources.

The probes found the FBI wrongly continued to rely on the allegations of Russia collusion to target Trump campaign figures for investigation and failed to disclose major flaws in their investigations to the courts that had authorized surveillance warrants.

The investigation also found that Steele’s primary source of Russian intel later disowned or distanced himself from the claims attributed to him in the Steele dossier and that U.S. intelligence had concerns the source was tied to Russian intelligence.

The soon-to-be-released records also expose a tantalizing connection between Steele, his primary source and one of the Democrats’ key impeachment witnesses in the Ukraine scandal, former Trump National Security Council Russia expert Fiona Hill.

Steele divulged to the FBI that he was introduced by Hill to his primary sub-source of information for his anti-Trump dossier and that he later told Hill that the source had provided information for his now infamous memos.

The documents also will settle a long-debated question in Washington about whether the FBI’s tactics amounted to spying on the Trump campaign.

Tasking instructions the FBI gave to Halper, an academic who long worked as an FBI informant, make clear he was instructed to infiltrate the Trump campaign by posing as someone who wanted to work for the GOP nominee and then targeting campaign advisers to find out what they knew about Trump or his campaign’s ties to Russia.

Halper was specifically instructed by the FBI to focus on campaign advisers Sam Clovis, George Papadopoulos and Carter Page, in some cases recording some of their conversations, the records are expected to show.

In her impeachment testimony in 2019, Hill acknowledged she knew Steele since 2006 when he worked for MI6 and she worked for the Bush administration.

She, however, did not make any mention of introducing Steele’s primary subsource and in fact expressed her own doubts about the Steele dossier, suggesting it could very well have been Russian disinformation. 

She said she held “misgivings and concern that he could have been played” by the Russians because they “would have an ax to grind against him given the job that he had previously.”

“I don’t believe it’s appropriate for him to have been hired to do this,” she testified about Steele. “I almost fell over when I discovered that he was doing this report.”

The latest COVID absurdity: walking with hot beverages

January 15, 2021
Cancun, MexicoAre you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.Women Surrounded by British Police for Taking a WalkYou’re allowed to exercise outside of your home under the UK’s current COVID lockdown.But the rule states vaguely that you must stay in your “local area.”So when two women drove five miles from their homes to take a secluded walk in nature, they were immediately surrounded by police and issued £200 fines each.The officers used their own discretion to decide that driving to a nearby park for a walk was not in the spirit of the lockdown. The officers also decided that, since the women both had beverages, their ‘walk’ was really just a picnic in disguise… which is strictly verboten.It’s just scary to think the damage to society that could have occured if these horrible criminals were allowed to sip tea while strolling in a remote park.Click here to read the full story.UK Law Enforcement Demands Power to Raid Homes Over COVIDA regional police commissioner in the UK is upset that police don’t have the power to enter your home to enforce COVID rules.The commissioner has raised the issue with the national government, because he believes “For the small minority of people who refuse entry to police officers and obstruct their work, the power of entry would seem to be a useful tool.”Big Brother might not be watching yet… but he wants to be able to come into your home just in case.Click here to read the full story.Antifa Violence Forces Portland Bookstore to Cancel Book on… Antifa ViolenceA book by Andy Ngo called Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy, is about the violent tactics that Antifa uses to coerce and intimidate its ideological opponents.And after a Portland bookstore began carrying the book, Antifa threatened to destroy the store and organized a seething protest outside one of the locations.The “Anti-Fascist” activists surrounded the bookseller, plastered banners on its windows, and forced it to close early “to keep employees and customers safe.”Antifa’s intimidation worked. The store responded that they will not carry the physical books, but that they would still keep the book in their online catalogue in order to “[shed] light on the dark corners of public discourse.”Additionally, though, the bookstore groveled in a public statement to indicate ideological alignment with Antifa, saying “It feels ugly and sickening to give any air to writing that could cause such deep pain to members of our community.”Sometimes it just takes the threat of violence to turn someone into a goose-stepping collaborator.Click here to read the full statement.New York wants to make body armor illegalNew York legislators introduced a bill that would make it a crime for all of us peasants to purchase or possess body armor, or bulletproof vests.Law enforcement would still be allowed to buy and own body armor however.And no one would be grandfathered in either; the commoners would have 15 days to turn in their protective gear, or face the consequences.The first offense is a misdemeanor, which means you could face a year in prison for owning a bulletproof vest.The second offense is a class E felony– punishable by between one and four years in prison.Clearly only criminals would want to shield themselves from bullets.Click here to read the bill.Hypocrite Watch: “Don’t Travel” says Canadian Senator Who Traveled to MexicoLast year, Canadian Senator Don Plett co-signed a directive barring all Senators and Members of Parliament from traveling outside of Canada on government business, due to safety concerns from COVID.But apparently the Senator thought traveling to Mexico on vacation was perfectly safe.The directive he co-signed is still in effect, but that didn’t stop Plett from flying to Mexico for a short vacation at the end of December.The Canadian government also still advises citizens to avoid non-essential travel– but I guess that just applies to the little people.Click here to read the full story.To your freedom………………….
