Nearly a year ago, we posited a question. What if COVID is in 2020 What Climate Change was in 1980? Would institutions once tasked with searching for truth discover how much more convenient and lucrative it is to “find” whatever gets you funded?
Or prevents you from being defunded?
The real fear is not the virus but the political culture that surrounds it. We’ve been wrestling with the climate cult for 40-years, and they are still at it. Can we convince ourselves that this latest victory in mass delusion will not continue for at least as long no matter how many experts contradict it?
The Climate Science cartel continues to use the weather to advance progressive politics. We are confronted daily with sky-is-falling narratives from the Left. Every weather event is proof of something at whose root is the idea that capitalism has failed and that only through a planned economy can we move forward disguised as saving the world.
It has nothing to do with climate or weather, and people described as researchers and experts (at little more than getting their funding funded, or their grants granted, or their pockets lined) keep saying it does because it pays.
The same poison has been introduced into the public health well.
Yes, big pharma has always been dabbling around the edges, but the dynamic has changed. It does not have an army or the power of the police state. But these corporatists will happily jog alongside the figureheads of the people’s republic of America for the guaranteed market share. Super-smart and savvy business folk with no f**king clue that as soon as those politicians have more power than we can push back upon, they’ll all find themselves under investigation, in jail, or dead. Replaced by a prominent party apparatchik with a doctorate from Yale in Lefthanded Albino Lesbian Studies.
I’d say it serves them right, but I value life even when “it” can’t see the writing on the wall. In that world, some animals are more equal than others. Orwell wrote that way before the Climate cult decided that some climate science was more equal than others. The same thing is happening to medicine. To research (reformatted).
As he described in a webinar last week, Ian Roberts, professor of epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, began to have doubts about the honest reporting of trials after a colleague asked if he knew that his systematic review showing the mannitol halved death from head injury was based on trials that had never happened. He didn’t, but he set about investigating the trials and confirmed that they hadn’t ever happened.
They all had a lead author who purported to come from an institution that didn’t exist and who killed himself a few years later. The trials were all published in prestigious neurosurgery journals and had multiple co-authors. None of the co-authors had contributed patients to the trials, and some didn’t know that they were co-authors until after the trials were published. When Roberts contacted one of the journals the editor responded that “I wouldn’t trust the data.” Why, Roberts wondered, did he publish the trial? None of the trials have been retracted.
Medical research has been corrupted to the point that people trying to cite it on their own can no longer know if what they reference is real. Peer review, a laughingstock in climate, is increasingly unreliable in medicine. And the media and politicians have long since been more interested in what moves the ball to their end of the field than what is true. And that’s the point.
Just as Hydroxychloroquine looked like the cheap, abundant OTC solution to the Chinese Virus (which it still is), a research group appeared out of thin air. Surgisphere produced a paper that impugned the drug and implied evidence that it was dangerous. The political left and their media homunculi leaped at the story and made it global. The news cycle ground down public perception over days, and when the truth came out, the story vanished, damage done.
Surgisphere was invented as a political propaganda tool, eagerly published by pawns and water carriers to accomplish one goal. Remove an actual cure/treatment from the board because it interfered with a political goal.
What has followed in the past 18-months has been a war on medical science and the politicization of public health. The goal, as with all left-wing psy-ops, is not just to change what the truth is but to make it impossible to discern so that the only “man” standing, honest or not, is a fast-talking tyrant who is working just as diligently to ensure they have all the guns.
At which point no one will doubt them, and the truth will be dead and anyone who dares utter it along with it.
