Big Pharma, tech giants, the mainstream media, “fact checkers,” and public health officials have told innumerable lies during the Covid pandemic.
From “masks work” to “100% safe and effective” to “15 days to slow the spread,” Americans have been bombarded with misinformation from the very beginning.
Even more nefariously, this shadow cabal has insisted that anyone who questioned its narratives were guilty of ‘wrong think’ at best; spreading ‘disinformation’ at worst.
But in the past few months, there have been a number of developments that have proved the critics right regarding many of the most widely spread myths.
Here are 15 of the worst Covid lies that have now been completely exposed for all the world to see.
1. Cloth and surgical masks don’t work, time for N95 masks
It has been the prevailing wisdom for nearly two years: Forcing people to wear face coverings for up to 8 hours a day must certainly slow the spread. Right?
The tide has begun to turn on this assessment, however. The Wall Street Journal recently published a study that shows Covid transmission is only insignificantly impaired by masks worn by the general public.
Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a Pfizer board member and former FDA Chief, finally admitted that cloth masks don’t work.
“Cloth masks aren’t going to provide a lot of protection, that’s the bottom line,” he said. “This is an airborne illness. We now understand that. And a cloth mask is not going to protect you from a virus that spreads through airborne transmission. It could protect better through droplet transmission, something like the flu, but not this coronavirus.”
When confronted with the data that the cloth masks don’t work, one expert, frequent CNN guest Dr. Leana Wen, argued that people be forced to wear surgical masks.
“Leana Wen, public health professor at George Washington University and an emergency physician, has urged the public to wear high-quality masks and described cloth masks as, ‘little more than facial decorations’,” the Hill reported. “She said cloth masks should not be considered an acceptable form of face covering and that the U.S. should require and distribute medical-grade surgical masks.”
When Dr. Wen’s sage advice was exposed as bogus, however, she moved on without missing a beat to the argument it’s now time for everyone to wear N95 masks.
So there you have it. The cloth and surgical masks are dead, long live the N95 masks!
2. Now, let’s force schoolchildren to wear N95 masks
Except N95 masks aren’t meant to be worn by the general public for hours a day. Even if we lived in an alternate reality where children were at significant risk from Covid (they’re not — especially from Omicron), the CDC Director Rochelle Walensky last January admitted as such.
Walensky explained why the general public should not wear N95 masks for extended periods of time.
“They’re very hard to breathe in when you wear them properly,” Walensky said. “They’re very hard to tolerate when you wear them for long periods of time.”
Doctors and nurses have since been turning to social media to show Americans that N95 masks are not appropriate for the general public, particularly for children.
Forcing children to wear such masks will not be tolerated by most parents. Especially when entire nations in Europe, such as Great Britain, refuse to mask healthy children because they are at miniscule risk from Covid-19.
3. Children exposed to ceaseless Covid hysteria will turn out fine
It now seems that concerned parents in many states are beginning to discover that their virtue-signaling has exacted a steep price. You can detect a sea change among parents, which is conveyed by the mainstream media.
“They will be paying for our generation’s decisions the rest of their lives,” Margaret Brennan said about 2021’s “most underreported story.” Putting aside the fact that she is a journalist on a Sunday morning show, this is what parents have been trying in vain to get across to the ‘experts’ for two years.
The Surgeon General last month even issued a warning about the Covid pandemic response exacerbating the childhood mental health crisis. The NY Times dutifully reported the news, which all normal Americans saw coming.
Masking children’s and adults’ faces during critical stages of children’s social development will have serious long-term effects.
A study with over 25,000 school-aged children showed that masks are harming schoolchildren “physically, psychologically, and behaviorally,” revealing 24 distinct health issues associated with wearing masks for hours each day.
The negative effects were found among 68% of children forced to wear a face covering for even just 4.5 hours per day. The health issues included: increased headaches (53%), difficulty concentrating (50%), drowsiness or fatigue (37%), malaise (42%), and sleep issues (33%).
Adding to their trauma, school administrators have even forced children to sit outside and eat lunch in the cold. Here is a stark example from Fairfax, Virginia of children eating outside in freezing weather.
Here’s another example from Portland, Oregon where kids were eating on buckets in chilly temperatures.
“Children in New York City public schools eat outdoors, on the ground, because eating around other people indoors can apparently be deadly,” she writes. “Their parents are free to take them to a restaurant after school, but that’s totally different because … well, no one really knows, but we have to keep the kids safe. The truly at-risk population, the elderly, can be seen around the city dining at our best restaurants, not sitting alone on the freezing ground.”
Civilized people protect the most vulnerable among us. But in the United States, with Woke liberals in charge, children’s needs come last.
4. Hospitalizations of sick children are now through the roof
Blue state governors pounced on the news of a highly contagious omicron variant spreading throughout the country to justify a continuation of their failed Covid response policies. The media dutifully reported there was a surge of child hospitalizations.
It wasn’t just ill-informed suburban mothers who fell for the alarming “news” — a sitting Supreme Court Justice even fueled the hysteria with wildly inaccurate misstatements.
“We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in serious condition, and many on ventilators,” Sotomayor claimed.
The actual figure was at least 30 times lower: HHS reported it was 3,342. However, between 40 percent and 70 percent of those were “incidental.”
“CDC is reporting increasing pediatric COVID hospitalizations, but critical to break numbers down,” Dr. Jeanne Noble pointed out. “Between our 2 pediatric hospitals in SF and Oakland, 30% of COVID+ hospitalizations are for COVID illness, and 70% are incidental. 6 kids hospitalized b/c of COVID today at UCSF.”
This squares with what even Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted on live television about the matter.
“But the other important thing is that if you look at the children who are hospitalized, many of them are hospitalized with COVID as opposed to because of COVID,” Fauci said. “And what we mean by that — if a child goes in the hospital, they automatically get tested for COVID. And they get counted as a COVID-hospitalized individual. When in fact, they may go in for a broken leg or appendicitis or something like that. So it’s over-counting the number of children who are, quote, ‘hospitalized with COVID,’ as opposed to because of COVID.”
New York’s acting health commissioner Dr. Mary Bassett revealed at a governor’s press conference that she exaggerated child hospitalizations in order to frighten parents into “seeking the protection of vaccination.”
“The numbers that we gave on pediatric admissions weren’t intended to make it seem children were having a – you know, having an epidemic of infection,” Dr. Bassett said. “These were small numbers that we reported in our health alert. That was based on 50 hospitalizations. And I’ve now given you some larger numbers, but they’re still small numbers.”
“It really is to motivate pediatricians and families to seek the protection of vaccination,” she admitted.
This is all just a cynical game to these “public health” officials with one end-goal in mind: Get jabbed. If that means lying or exaggerating or misleading people, so be it. Free citizens do not tolerate this kind of disrespect. They demand to “live in truth.”
5. Natural immunity is not as good as vaccinated immunity
It is one of the worst-kept secrets of the entire pandemic: Those individuals who are exposed to Covid-19 develop natural immunity from prior infections.
The media’s blackout of the known scientific phenomenon is designed with only one aim in mind: Pressure people who don’t need the mRNA shots to get them anyway.
Independent medical researchers have found that this type of redundancy is completely unnecessary, however. Indeed, why get exposed to potential adverse reactions from an mRNA shot when one already has natural protection?
“[S]tudy findings reveal that individuals with previous SARS-CoV-2 infection do not get additional benefits from vaccination, indicating that COVID-19 vaccines should be prioritized to individuals without prior infection,” a Cleveland Clinic study found in 2021.
But what about the Omicron variant? Even three Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech shots do not stop infection or slow transmission of the mutated virus. Prior infection from the “generally mild” variant, on the other hand, is believed to confer immunity to other variants, such as Delta.
A recent study on natural immunity published in the European Journal of Immunology showed that prior infection from Omicron was both durable and long-lasting.
“Most subjects develop antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 following infection,” the study states. “In order to estimate the duration of immunity induced by SARS-CoV-2 it is important to understand for how long antibodies persist after infection in humans... We found that NAb [natural antibodies] against the WT virus [B-lineage variants] persisted in 89% and S-IgG in 97% of subjects for at least 13 months after infection.”
The CDC reports that there have been 65.5 million infections to one Covid variant or another in the United States. In September, there were a reported 146.6 million prior infections. The CDC estimated that there were four (4.0) infections for every “case.” The number of Americans with natural immunity from prior infection following the massive Omicron wave thus may exceed 200 million.
In the Washington Post, Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health, pointed to 15 studies on natural immunity resulting from prior infections to Covid-19. A famous article from Brownstone listed 30 such scientific studies on the benefit of Covid-19 natural immunity, in addition to adding four more to its comprehensive list of 140 scientific studies on natural immunity.
Nonetheless, millions of Americans, particularly Democrats, don’t believe in “natural immunity.” A Rasmussen survey conducted a survey on the issue at the urging of Becker News and shared the results.
“Those who have previously been infected with COVID-19 acquire natural immunity, providing ‘robust protection against COVID-19 for at least six to eight months after infection,’ according to the World Health Organization,” Rasmussen states in its analysis of the results. “The same is true of vaccines. However, most Democrats (61%) believe vaccines are more effective than natural immunity in protecting against COVID-19, while just 17% think natural immunity offers more protection, and only 13% correctly believe vaccines and natural immunity are equally effective.”
But the bubble may have burst on this natural immunity denial this week, when the NCAA announced that it would recognize it for the purpose of in-game attendance.
“A person who has had a documented COVID-19 infection in the past 90 days is considered the equivalent of ‘fully vaccinated’,” the NCAA announced.
6. Masks keep travelers safe on airline flights
Some of the most powerful indicators that the Covid narratives are crumbling is when major companies or their CEOs announce that they reject their premises.
A pair of airline CEOS testified to Congress in December that they did not believe the mask mandates for passengers on flights were necessary.
Southwest CEO Gary Kelly testified to the Senate that: “I think the case is very strong that masks don’t add much, if anything, in the air cabin environment. It is very safe and very high quality compared to any other indoor setting.”
Doug Parker, the American Airlines CEO, agreed with that assessment.
“I concur,” Parker said. “An aircraft is the safest place you can be. It’s true of all of our aircraft — they all have the same HEPA filters and airflow.”
Mask wearing among the general public doesn’t add “much of anything,” regardless. Setting that aside, a recent Supreme Court’s decision may have put an end to all of the talk about vaccine mandates for travel.
7. Federal government has the right to mandate employers to force people to get vaccines
OSHA’s employer mandate would have required workers to get vaccinated for Covid-19 or to wear masks and be tested weekly. The White House pivoted to dismiss the Supreme Court ruling as the end of the vaccine mandate and continued to urge major companies to further the administration’s corporatist policies.
“The Supreme Court’s decision on the OSHA mandate essentially means that in this pandemic it is up to individual employers to determine whether their workplaces will be safe for employees,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed. “And whether their business will be safe for consumers.”
Except that major corporations are already deciding that they do not want to continue to run the best and brightest out of their industries, while continuing to wreak major unnecessary disruption in their companies.
General Electric Co on Friday said “it has suspended COVID-19 vaccine or test requirement for employees after the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling,” Reuters reported.
In December, numerous companies suspended their vaccine mandates during a lower court’s stay pending the Supreme Court’s decision.
“A growing number of health care systems and other companies, including Amtrak and General Electric, are suspending mandates that require employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19,” NBC reported.
“Most employers do not have the luxury of losing 5 percent or 10 percent or whatever percent of their workforce doesn’t want to get vaccinated,” said Barron, who works with the law firm Cozen O’Connor. “In this environment, it’s very tough, especially in jobs like health care or other industries where it’s a very tight labor market.”
The Supreme Court, meanwhile, did not strike down the Biden vaccine mandates for federally funded healthcare providers. However, the Supreme Court ruling has prompted resistance among states like Florida, and may “wither on the vine.”
8. Vaccines stop the spread of Covid-19
Another one of the glaringly false claims that Justice Sotomayor made during the Supreme Court hearing of the Biden employer mandate case is that the “vaccines” stop the spread of Covid-19 — and particularly, the Delta and Omicron variants.
“Many Supreme Court Justices have falsely stated today that the Wuhan coronavirus vaccine ‘prevents disease’ and transmission in the work place,” Katie Pavlich pointed out. “This is absolutely false and highly alarming they’re using that point as fact to make their decision.”
Many are refuting this false claim by pointing to statements by CDC Director Rochelle Walensky that the vaccines can no longer “prevent transmission” (in fact, they cannot, as Becker News reported earlier). But it it is even worse than that. Higher vaccination rates correlate with higher transmission rates, according to a Harvard-led study.
So, the vaccines are useless when it comes to stopping the spread of Delta or Omicron. That’s what the real-world data indicate.
9. One or two shots and you’re “fully vaccinated”
It’s one of the earliest myths spread about the “vaccines.” If you take one shot of Johnson & Johnson, or two shots of Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech, that would put an end to the Covid threat.
“One and done,” Newsom said in April. “I have been looking forward to this for many, many months.”
“Spectators applauded when he was done,” the Mercury News reported at the time.
Nobody is applauding now. The goalposts have been moved faster than you can say “booster shot.”
After the rollout of a third shot for Covid-19, a “booster” shot, Dr. Anthony Fauci said in December it’s a matter of “when, not if” the definition of “fully vaccinated” changes.
Obviously, the term “fully vaccinated” was misleading from the start if there is no such thing as being “fully” vaccinated.
10. Booster shots will stop another Covid wave
The U.S. media has been following the lead of Israel when it comes to the vaccines, despite that tiny nation’s track record of failure. In late November, CNN touted booster shots as purportedly stopping a “fourth wave” of Covid.
“Now, a person is not considered fully vaccinated in Israel until they have received a third dose of the vaccine, once they are eligible for it,” CNN noted.
“More than three months on, Israeli health officials say the data is clear: Booster shots helped bring down the fourth wave of the virus that swept the country in August and September,” CNN added.
However, it was soon found that the initial waves of Omicron in November and December included many patients who were both “vaccinated” and “boosted.”
The data is now in: Journalists in the media who spread this talking point either lied or don’t know what they are talking about. Again.
11. The more “boosters” the better
Big Pharma and its spokespersons in the media would have the American people believe that the more boosters the better. This claim is made without any long-term data that prove the approach is safe, effective, and reasonably acknowledges the risks.
But new data indicate it does not make sense to push a fourth booster for most people, when fully assessing the risks.
“Regulators for the European Union have issued a warning that frequent COVID-19 booster shots could have an adverse affect on the immune system, and may not be a feasible means of combating the pandemic,” the National Pulse noted about the study. “The European Medicines Agency (EMA) reported that having repeat booster shots every four months could weaken the human immune system.”
Marco Cavaleri, the EMA’s head of Biological Health Threats and Vaccine Strategy, said at a press briefing that boosters “can be done one or maybe twice, but we don’t think it should be repeated all the time.”
“We need to think about how we can move from the current pandemic environments to a more endemic one,” he continued.
This warning must have come as a shock to Big Pharma, which doesn’t care about the health of people, so much as its own skyrocketing profits.
12. Vaccine passports stop the spread
Vaccine “passports” or “green passes” are one of the most coercive instruments unveiled by health officials to pressure individuals into getting vaccinated. This is an unethical approach that violates principles of bodily autonomy and informed consent.
However, not only are vaccine passports unethical, and function in similar ways to internal passports seen in authoritarian and communist countries. their efficacy has been exposed as extremely dubious.
In the United States, two major cities have had ‘vaccine passports’ for months: New York and San Francisco. (Ignoring the health outcomes of these cities, the Minneapolis-St. Paul area has more recently adopted them.)
New York City has seen no measurable benefit from the vaccine passports. It has seen an Omicron explosion at a rate exceeding the norm, including accompanying hospitalizations and deaths. (Thus calling into further question data reporting, but that’s a separate issue.)
San Francisco is in the same camp.
If you’re going to impose a draconian law that coerces people into taking action against their will, you better be able to show measurable results. Yet, there is no place that has implemented these unethical measures that can even point to data that shows they slow the spread or even save lives.
One of the reasons for this lack of evidence supporting vaccine passports is that 95% of elderly people willfully took the vaccines to protect them from hospitalization and death. More than 62% of people who have died during the pandemic are over the age of 65. Around 82% of deaths were over age 50. It is highly debatable that universal vaccine mandates do much for the general population besides violate people’s rights and escalate social division.
13. Public health officials issue guidance based on the “science”
Yet another ‘aha’ moment since December is when public health officials indicated that they may change Omicron quarantine guidance due to political pushback.
“You’re right there has been some concern about why we don’t ask people at that five-day period to get tested,” Fauci told ABC News in January. “That is something that is now under consideration. The CDC is very well aware that there has been some pushback about that.”
He continued, “Looking at it again, there may be an option in that, that testing could be a part of that. And I think we’re going to be hearing more about that in the next day or so from the CDC.”
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky subsequently indicated that the ten-day quarantine guidance would be changed from ten days to five days.
“People would feel well enough to be at work — they would not necessarily tolerate being home — and if they may not comply with being home, this is the moment that we needed to make that decision and those changes,” Walensky said.
This underscores what people have been accusing the CDC and NIH of doing all along: Issuing public policy guidance that is not based on science, but based on their political agenda.
This was demonstrated by unions blasting the CDC for changing its quarantine guidance.
“We said we wanted to hear from medical professionals on the best guidance for quarantine, not from corporate America advocating for a shortened period due to staffing shortages,” Sara Nelson, the president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, said in a statement Monday.
“National Nurses United, the country’s largest union of registered nurses, issued similar criticism last week when the CDC shortened the isolation period for healthcare workers,” Business Insider reported.
“Weakening Covid-19 guidance now, in the face of what could be the most devastating Covid-19 surge yet, will only result in further transmission, illness, and death,” Zenei Triunfo-Cortez, president of the union, wrote in a letter to Walensky.
In fact, the CDC had reversed its school masking guidance in May after pressure from teacher’s unions. Emails between the teacher’s unions and the CDC revealed that the decision was based on politics, and not the science.
14. The vaccines are 100% safe and effective for everyone
This “100% safe and effective” mantra was sold to millions of Americans during the rollout of the mRNA shots in January 2021. Since then, however, there has been obfuscation about potential side effects, as those forces behind the relentless drive for universal vaccination don’t recognize assessment of individual risks.
One of the most stark illustrations of this is the FDA refused to immediately turn over the hundreds of thousands of pages of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine clinical trials data. Indeed, it asked for a whopping 55 years, and after “discovering” more documents, then petitioned a judge in a court case for 75 years. The judge, however, has ordered the FDA to turn over the documents at a rate that is over a hundred times what it had requested.
In the initial FDA document dumps, it became clear from even the redacted data that the vaccination risks were higher than what was being officially reported.
“It is estimated that approximately [REDACTED] doses of BNT162b2 were shipped worldwide from the receipt of the first temporary authorisation for emergency supply on 01 December 2020 through 28 February 2021,” the document states.
“Cumulatively, through 28 February 2021, there was a total of 42,086 case reports (25,379 medically confirmed and 16,707 non-medically confirmed) containing 158,893 events,” the FDA document continues. “Most cases (34,762) were received from United States (13,739), United Kingdom (13,404) Italy (2,578), Germany (1913), France (1506), Portugal (866).”
The chart lists 1223 fatal outcomes in the Relevant Cases. Interestingly, the age range with the most relevant cases was 31-50 years old, which is not the age group considered to be at high risk from Covid-19. It is unclear how this scales out to the general population, because the FDA redacted the number of doses administered.
Most controversially, there have been numerous reports about increased risks from myocarditis. While a British study claims that there is more risk of heart inflammation from Covid-19 than from the mRNA vaccines, even among younger adults, there is also very persuasive research suggesting that “adverse events” are being seriously underreported.
The spike in heart inflammation cases has been particularly prominent among young people. Dr. Jessica Rose, a prominent critic of the universal vaccination agenda, has spoken out forcefully on the issue, only to face censorship in “peer-reviewed journals.”
“Dr. Jessica Rose, who is normally positive about vaccines, says that VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System), the US database for vaccine injuries, has only managed to collect an estimated 1% of the total number of serious side effects from mRNA injections,’ NewsVoice reported. “VAERS is, unfortunately, a weak system when it comes to how side effect data is handled, says Rose.”
An analysis performed by Steve Kirsch, Jessica Rose and Mathew Crawford subsequently used the known anaphylaxis (allergic reaction) rate for Covid vaccines to show that VAERS data was underestimating these adverse events by at least 41 times.
This does not inspire confidence that we are getting the full story about how prevalent the side effects are. Dozens of professional athletes around the world dropping dead from heart attacks — many of them after vaccinations — testifies to the dubious account.
15… days to slow the spread
The “father of all Covid lies” may be “15 days to slow the spread.” The deceptive phrase was unveiled on March 16, 2020.
The MacIver institute recapped what happened in the subsequent months: A pivot away from lessening the hospitalization burden to futilely trying to stop all cases.
“‘Fifteen Days Slow the Spread’ and ‘flatten the curve’ of hospitalizations in March became a ‘Safer at Home’ lockdown in April that ended only with a Supreme Court decision in May,” the institute noted. “A spike in cases (not hospitalizations, intensive care visits or deaths) in June has prompted a return to draconian shutdowns by mid-July.”
John Nolte gave an apt recap of how the lie played out by July 2021… 493 days later.
- From “15 Days to Slow the Spread” to schoolkids sitting around in filthy masks all day.
- From “15 Days to Slow the Spread” to kids being forced to wear masks while playing outside.
- From “15 Days to Slow the Spread” to not being allowed to attend the funeral of a loved one or even visit a loved one.
- From “15 Days to Slow the Spread” to having your small business locked down for a year while Amazon, Netflix, Costco, and Walmart all thrive.
- From “15 Days to Slow the Spread” to arresting Americans who attend church.
It is now January 2022 — 671 days later — and this is where the world is now.
Australia has devolved from a happy and sunny Western liberal nation to a prison-state.
This is what it’s like inside of one of these detainment camps.
This is another report about a “Covid-19 isolation camp.”
Old ladies aren’t even safe from state harassment and arrest.
Australia has even banned “singing and dancing.”
That will stop the spread.
It looks like Australia is following the “China model” that was touted early on by Western journalists.
If you think it can’t happen here, think again. This is modern-day New York City.
Children aren’t even safe from police harassment. This was an incident at a New York Applebee’s in December.
Despite the mainstream media’s blackout, there are mass protests against Covid policies like mandates and passports all over the world.
The world has become a darker place due to the governments’ cruel and ineffective Covid policies. The “15 days to slow the spread” lie went halfway around the world before the truth had a chance to put its mask on.
Fortunately for us, the truth is out. We can now begin the hard work of telling the world what went wrong and how we can restore the rights and freedoms that are our birthright as human beings.
