Medical Racism: The New Apartheid

March 26, 2021 | Medical Racism: The New Apartheid is a project of CHD Films, a division of Children’s Health Defense® |  Source

“Dear Friend:

We are writing to you about a grave concern that ultimately impacts everybody. In short, our new documentary – Medical Racism, The New Apartheid – has been systematically, efficiently, and unfairly CENSORED AND BANNED throughout the Internet and media.

Since you’ve taken an interest in our movie, we’re reaching out to solicit your support.

We need your help in circumventing this terrible breach of our right to free speech. If you’ve seen the film, you know that it’s balanced and truthful. Medical Racism presents compelling evidence of medical persecution in America and elsewhere which has been systemic and recent. Reviews from those who’ve seen the film have been universally spectacular. Every word, every moment has been tirelessly reviewed by lawyers, and we were thoughtful in including alternative narratives. And yet…

  • Facebook is massively limiting people from sharing the film. We see this through analysis demonstrating in some cases 99+% of posts failing to reach their intended recipient.
  • Facebook is sending threatening deplatforming notices to doctors for sharing the film on their platform.
  • Practically no media publication will cover the film; one major media publication  that did critique the film doesn’t even include the film’s name.
  • One major media outlet asking for an interview claimed “experts we spoke to have criticized the film as misinformation,” 6 DAYS BEFORE THE FILM WAS RELEASED.
  • Instagram’s sophisticated technology appears to “listen” verbally for the phrase “Medical Racism,” and prevents people from receiving shared posts

 

Why are they so against people seeing this film? There are likely many reasons. There’s massive Big Pharma vaccine/drug revenue and advertising dollars to media, Big Tech leadership’s political agendas, CDC and WHO “combating vaccine misinformation” campaigns, etc.

These are the censorship tactics for which we are aware. Big Tech’s efforts are incredibly sophisticated and effective, with hundreds if not thousands of the brightest minds working tirelessly on algorithms and operational procedures that have the effect of dangerously swaying popular opinion. We have lost our ability to present alternative perspectives. THIS SHOULD BE OF CONCERN TO US ALL, INCLUDING OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS.

Here is a link straight to our film. We ask that you watch the film. If it resonates with you, like the earliest days of the Internet PLEASE SHARE THIS EMAIL with 5 (or more) of your friends.

We also hope that you will join us for a panel discussion with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Rev. Tony Muhammad, Kevin Jenkins of the Urban Global Alliance, author/historian Curtis Cost and activist Sheila Ealey, on Monday, March 29 at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET. Sign up now to attend.

Email cannot be censored, yet!

We believe our film is important, people need to see it, ask the right questions, and make their own determinations. We kindly ask for your support with this special campaign.”

Sincerely,
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Legal team wants ‘second Nuremberg tribunal’ to try global lockdown promoters for crimes against humanity

 

March 2, 2021 | Legal team wants ‘second Nuremberg tribunal’ to try global lockdown promoters for crimes against humanity  | By James Rathey | Before It’s News | Truth11 |

“Should the technocrats who pushed governments to lockdown their citizens be tried for crimes against humanity?

One prominent German lawyer, who is also licensed to practice law in America, thinks they should. And he is organizing a team of thousands of participating lawyers who want to prosecute a “second Nuremberg tribunal” against a cadre of international elites responsible for what he calls the “corona fraud scandal.”

Targeting the Davos, Switzerland-based World Economic Forum and its devotees among global political leaders, attorney Reiner Fuellmich says they are guilty of crimes against humanity for their perpetration of COVID-response policies that led to forced shutdowns, destroyed businesses, impoverished families, broken lives and a spike in suicide rates

He has formed the German Corona Investigative Committee to pursue civil charges against the main perpetrators, among them being the head of the United Nations World Health Organization Dr. Tedros Adhanom. He hopes a successful class-action lawsuit will also lead to criminal charges.

LFuellmich was on the legal team that won a major lawsuit against German automaker Volkswagen in a 2015 case involving tampered catalytic converters in the U.S. He also was involved in a lawsuit that exposed one of Germany’s largest banks, Deutsche Bank, as a criminal enterprise. The bank was recently ordered by the U.S. Justice Department to pay $130 million to resolve corrupt practices that included money laundering, bribery and fraud between the years 2009 and 2016.

Fuellmich is licensed to practice law in Germany and the state of California.

He believes the frauds committed by Volkswagen and Deutsche Bank pale in comparison to the damage wrought by those who sold the Covid-19 crisis as the worst viral outbreak to hit the world in more than a century and used it to cause media-driven panic, government overreach and human suffering on a scale still not fully quantified.

The truth is revealed in the numbers, Fuellmich said, citing figures that show COVID-19 has not caused any statistically significant increase in the 2020 death counts over previous years.

The scam perpetrated on humanity hinged on one dirty little secret, he said – the PCR Test.

Not only are these tests not approved for diagnostic purposes but the inventor of the PCR Test, the late Kary Mullis, explicitly stated in an interview that this was never the purpose of his test.

Fuellmich explains in the video below how the coronavirus response of governments worldwide working in cahoots with the Bill Gates-funded U.N. World Health Organization “are probably the biggest crimes against humanity ever committed.”

[If YouTube removes the above video you can watch the full version here.]

“A number of highly respected scientists [he names several in the video including a Nobel Laurette from Stanford University] have concluded there has never been a coronavirus pandemic but only a PCR test pandemic,” he says.This is the Organic Biotin That Gives Beautiful Hair, Strong Nails and an Amazing Complexion!

“If someone tests positive it does not mean they are infected with anything, let alone with the contagious SARS-COV-2 virus,” Fuellmich says in the video.

“Based on the rules of criminal law, asserting false facts concerning the PCR tests, or intentional misrepresentation, that can only be assessed as fraud. Based on the rules of civil tort law, this translates into intentional infliction of damage.”

He said persons harmed by the PCR-induced lockdowns are entitled to full compensation for their losses.

“The crimes committed by Mr. Christian Drosten [an epidemiologist and Germany’s version of Dr. Anthony Fauci] and Mr. Lothar Wieler, a veterinarian and head of the German equivalent of the CDC, and Tedros Adhanom, head of the WHO, must be legally qualified as actual crimes against humanity as defined in Section 7 of the International Criminal Code.”

He said the class-action lawsuit is the best avenue to try the case.

In a Feb. 24 article about Fuellmich’s effort, the journal Principia Scientific International quoted him saying “this COVID-19 crisis should be renamed the ‘Covid-19 Scandal,’ and all those responsible should be prosecuted for civil damages due to manipulations and falsified test protocols. Therefore, an international network of business lawyers will plead the biggest tort case of all time, the COVID-19 fraud scandal, which has meanwhile turned into the biggest crime against humanity ever committed.”

Why COVID Policies Are A War Against Humanity

 

March 24, 2021 | Why COVID Policies Are A War Against Humanity | By Neenah Payne | Activist Post | Source

“Time is running out for humanity quickly now unless we can find effective ways to defend ourselves. An effective strategy depends on a correct understanding of the situation — including the tremendous power shift away from the people, constitutional governments, and nation states to big banks, Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Agra, global corporations, and unelected global bureaucrats like Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab of the The World Economic Forum.

Gates said the world cannot go fully back to normal until almost all 7+ billion people get his poorly-tested, gene-altering injection which does not meet the five criteria to qualify as a vaccine. It was illegally approved under Emergency Use Authorizations which do not apply to injections and cannot be used when there is an effective treatment. There were five proven treatments and cures for COVID in 2020 — at least one as early as March last year. More than a dozen nations have stopped using the vaccine because it is causing serious injuries and deaths — even in young people.

Klaus Schwab, author of the 2020 book COVID-19: The Great Reset and the 2017 book The Fourth Industrial Revolution, is proposing a “Great Reset” and “new normal” by 2030 in which we will all be happy owning NOTHING and will rent everything (from whom?)! Presumably, the 1% will own everything — and will be even happier! Throughout history, people who owned NOTHING were called “slaves” or “serfs”. Will we be “happy” just to be alive because many people are not expected to survive the increasingly harsh COVID policies? Why is this destruction of our rights and economy happening?

This power shift from people/nations to corporations/bureaucrats began in the 20th century and has accelerated in the 21st century — moving at WARP SPEED now under the COVID “health” policies. It’s important to take a close look now at their stated plans for humanity and the likely results.”

Wisconsin Lawmakers Pass Legislation Forbidding Mandatory CV-19 Injections

Wisconsin Lawmakers Pass Legislation Forbidding Mandatory CV-19 Injections

March 23, 2021 | Wisconsin GOP lawmakers pass bills banning COVID-19 vaccine mandates | By Molly Beck  Patrick Marley | Milwaukee Journal Sentinel | Source 

“MADISON – State lawmakers on Tuesday passed a series of Republican-authored bills that would require COVID-19 vaccines to be optional and sent to Democratic Gov. Tony Evers a bill that gives GOP lawmakers control over how federal relief funds are spent in Wisconsin.

Evers said he would veto legislation that gives Republican lawmakers authority over COVID-19 relief funds before the bill was introduced. But he hasn’t yet said whether he will sign legislation that bars employers and government officials from requiring vaccinations.”

Ron Paul on the passage of legislation banning mandatory COVID vaccines in Wisconsin

“Campaign for Liberty Chairman Dr. Ron Paul issued the following statement regarding the Wisconsin General Assembly’s passage of legislation forbidding Wisconsin government officials from mandating individuals receive a COVID-19 vaccine:

 “If governments can force individuals to receive vaccines and other medical treatments against their will, there is no area of life safe from government mandates. All who value liberty should celebrate the Wisconsin Assembly’s passage of legislation forbidding government officials from mandating any individual receive the COVID vaccine.

 

“I want to thank the Campaign for Liberty supporters in Wisconsin who contacted their state legislators in support of this bill. The efforts of these grassroots liberty activists were vital to passing this legislation.

 

“Hopefully, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers will sign this legislation and more state legislators will protect their citizens right to decide for themselves whether to get a COVID vaccine. Campaign for Liberty ’s dedicated activists are ready to mobilize in support of any state legislation opposing mandatory vaccines.”

Sign the petition to stop the Biden gun grab agenda.

March 25, 2021 | Ron Paul | Campaign For Liberty | Sign the petition

“Joe Biden is stepping up plans to dismantle your gun rights in the aftermath of two horrible tragedies involving criminal use of firearms.

It seems like every single time there is a highly publicized shooting by a criminal, the authoritarians immediately move to restrict the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners.

It happens over and over again and is supported in all corners of this country by the corporate press.

Biden is looking to bypass Congress, to dictate gun laws through executive orders.

Sign the petition to stop the Biden gun grab agenda.

The proposed executive orders are solutions in search of problems, but the most insidious being a “strengthened background check,” which is code for the creation of a centralized gun owner database, controlled by Joe Biden!

Worse than that, Biden is now calling on Congress to pass an “assault weapons” ban and a ban on “high-capacity magazines,” which is so restrictive that it would make nearly every handgun on the market today obsolete.

Biden and the gun grabbers in Congress say they want to ban “assault weapons” but can offer no definition of what that means.

It doesn’t matter much what they think it means, because the 2nd Amendment, clearly states “shall not be infringed!”

Sign the petition to stop the Biden gun grab agenda.

Virginia: Victory for Small Business! Judge Denies State’s Injunction Request

 

March 24, 2021 | Virginia: Victory for Small Business! Judge Denies State’s Injunction Request  | Fighting Harder Than Most Christians: Small Business Fights Restrictions | by Jacob M. Thompson | The Wine Press_Source

“A small business owner defied the Covid restrictions. After a legal battle the judge ruled in his favor.

The following report is from WND:

A restaurant in Fredericksburg, Virginia, will not be forced to close after it broke state coronavirus guidelines, which is a major victory for the small business.

A judge denied the state’s request that an injunction be issued against Gourmeltz 90’s Music Bar & Draft House, after the restaurant went against the state’s restrictions on dining, WUSA-TV reported.

Despite his food and liquor licenses being revoked by the state for not complying with Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s COVID-19 orders for dining (like wearing masks), restaurant owner Matt Strickland and his team are still serving customers.

I’m not afraid of the state, I’m not afraid of the federal government.

I spent most of my adult life fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. I have no problem coming home and fighting here in Virginia.

Matt Strickland

His lawyer argued that the restaurant has yet to have a case of coronavirus traced back to it, and Gourmeltz has raised over $13,000 in funds to assist with legal efforts.

The state, the government, the president … They will never scare me into backing down. I will never kneel down and kiss that ring. I will fight as long as I’ve got to fight. I will fight as hard as I have to fight.”

The Science is Settled. Lockdowns are More Deadly Than the Virus and Masks Don’t Work.

January 31, 2021 |  source

“A deadly combination of exponentially increased suicides, drug overdose, homicide, alcohol consumption, calorie consumption, delayed cancer screenings, spousal abuse, tuberculosis, and more is occurring. Researchers conclude this combination will outweigh deaths from COVID by multiples.

Data show very clearly that lockdowns have not only been completely ineffective, but they have been potentially as much as ten times more deadly than the coronavirus itself.

According to the UN there are 10,000 additional children dying a month during the lockdowns, and 550,000 additional children suffering malnutrition. There will also be 1.4 million additional people to die from untreated TB.

Almost 7,000 scientists, virologists, and infectious disease experts recently signed a declaration against lockdown measures, urging that citizens across the west should be able to get on with their lives as normal, and that lockdown rules in both the United States and the UK are causing “irreparable damage.”

Oxford University professor Dr. Sunetra Gupta was one of the authors of the open letter that was sent with the petition, along with Harvard University’s Dr. Martin Kulldorff and Stanford’s Dr. Jay Bhattacharya.

The declaration corresponds with other research that concludes lockdowns will “destroy at least seven times more years of human life” than they save.

Other studies find that debilitating stress and anxiety caused by the lockdown, including despair caused by job loss, could lead to a myriad of negative health issues that will take a far greater overall toll on human life than the number of lives saved by the shutdown.

How Deadly is the Virus?

Researchers have established that the effects of the worldwide lockdown will be far more deadly than the virus itself, but how deadly is the virus really?

According to all available data, the virus itself has an infection fatality rate that is either equivalent to, or far less than the influenza for most age groups.

The Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) is the total number of deaths divided by the total number of people that carry the infection, regardless of them having clinical symptoms or not. The IFR is the chance of death once you have the virus.

Table 3 of the CDC’s data on deaths between February 2 and August 22, shows that only 6 percent of the 161,392 reported COVID deaths were listed as COVID-19 alone. All other U.S. deaths had on average, 2.6 additional medical conditions including influenza and cardiac arrest. Other conditions included sepsis, diabetes, renal failure, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Are they including all of the normal yearly influenza deaths in the COVID-19 death totals?

Misclassification of COVID Fatalities?

A peer-reviewed study contends the Centers for Disease Control violated federal law by inflating Coronavirus fatality numbers exponentially.

The fatality figures were inflated by at least 1,600%, according to the study, titled “COVID-19 Data Collection, Comorbidity & Federal Law: A Historical Retrospective.”

The study noted that on March 24, the CDC published an alert instructing medical examiners, coroners and physicians to deemphasize underlying causes of death, also known as pre-existing conditions or comorbidities.

Many coroners have come forward to express their concern on how official are recording their covid deaths.

The Grand County, Colorado coroner is recently called attention to the way the state health department is classifying some deaths.

The coroner, Brenda Bock, says two of their five deaths related to COVID-19 were people who died of gunshot wounds.

“these two people had tested positive for COVID but that’s not what killed them,” she said. “The gunshot wound killed them.”

Bock said it’s simple in this case – the gunshot wound was the cause of death.

“I realize yes, you’re trying to keep count of the numbers, but you need to do it right, and these people did not die of COVID, they died of gunshot wounds and that’s how it needs to be listed,” she said.

 

The study also concludes that the CDC “illegally enacted new rules that violated federal law, which resulted in a 1,600% inflation of current COVID-19 fatality totals.”

Under the new rules, COVID-19 was to be listed in Part I of death certificates as a definitive cause of death, regardless of confirmatory evidence, rather than in Part II as a contributor to death in the presence of pre-existing conditions.

On its website, the CDC says, just 6% of the people counted as COVID-19 deaths died of COVID-19 alone.

The following are the top underlying medical conditions linked with COVID-19 deaths:

  • Influenza and pneumonia
  • Respiratory failure
  • Hypertensive disease
  • Diabetes
  • Vascular and unspecified dementia
  • Cardiac Arrest
  • Heart failure
  • Renal failure
  • Intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning and other adverse events
  • Other medical conditions

The researchers estimated the COVID-19 recorded fatalities “are inflated nationwide by as much as 1600% above what they would be had the CDC used the 2003 handbooks,” said All Concerned Citizens in a statement on the study.

 

The ‘Worst Flu Season in Decades’

During the beginning of the year, nearly all major media outlets reported that the world was in store for possibly the worst flu season on record. On January 3, CNN reported on Dr Fauci’s warning that the United States was “on track for the worst flu season in decades.”

While Fauci was warning about one of the deadliest flu seasons in decades, the rest of the media were telling Americans not to worry about Coronavirus, and that the flu would be far more deadly this year. The Los Angeles Times advised not to fear the Coronavirus, because ”for Americans the flu is a much bigger threat and more widespread.” In early February, USA Today wrote that “the coronavirus is scary, but the flu is deadlier and more widespread.” During the same time, the Washington Post declared “Get a Grippe America, the Flu is a Much Bigger Threat Than Coronavirus.”

But how did the United States go from the start of the “worst flu season in decades,” to influenza cases and deaths nosediving by 98 percent across the globe?

The explanation that cases of influenza nosedived simply because much of the world’s population are now donning masks, while at the same time cases of the coronavirus surge, is completely inconsistent and a nonsensical conclusion, to say the least.

The 2017-2018 flu season was so bad, hospitals were treating patients in tents. No lockdown was ever considered at all, despite tens of thousands of deaths.

The 2017-2018 epidemic was sending people to hospitals and urgent-care centers in every state, and medical centers were responding with extraordinary measures: asking staff to work overtime, set up triage tents, restricting friends and family visits, and canceling elective surgeries.

“We are pretty much at capacity, and the volume is certainly different from previous flu seasons,” said Dr. Alfred Tallia, professor and chair of family medicine in New Brunswick, New Jersey at the time.

Why Are Lockdowns Still Ongoing?

They told us that lockdowns would only last two weeks, just to give hospitals time to manage capacity. It has now been almost a year.

Looking at what the science actually says, the only conclusion that makes sense is because mega corporations, monopolies, and Wall Street billionaires financially benefit to the tune of trillions of dollars. And it it those groups who have always funded the media, and decided which experts get to speak, what they can say, and which people set the standards.

The greatest wealth transfer in the history of America has occurred because of this.

Billionaires make appearances on corporate media telling people to be extremely afraid, and that we must shut down, because they benefit from the lockdown which cuts out their competition and helps them further monopolize.

The same people then make appearances on the same corporate media outlets they used to push for lockdowns, to short brick and mortar stores even further into the ground; by telling people those stocks are going to tank.

Hundreds of virologists, infectious disease experts, scientists, economists, and doctors  who have talked about this—pushing back against the mainstream narrative— have been shut out of the conversation by big tech, big media, and mega corporations.

This is simply because their narrative—which is the scientifically correct one—interferes with the historic financial gain of Wall Street and mega corporations we’ve observed.

Many people acknowledge our healthcare system is corrupt—only out to make money at our expense—yet those same people continue to buy into all of what our healthcare and corporate system tells them about COVID.  

If you say that you value science, and are against the corporate elite, but yet still disregard the scientific consensus, listening to what the TV people tell you; you are the foolish one, and are helping to spread the wealth gap between the top 1% and the rest of America.

 

Do Masks Work?

The science is also settled on this, and has been for a very long time.  The vast majority of scientific studies done on the efficacy of masks in preventing the spread of respiratory viruses, show they do absolutely nothing to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.

Covid-19 infections commonly occur via aerosolized particles not just droplets. Masks and air filters can remove very small particles, such as bacteria and viruses but a single coronavirus particle size ranges from 70–90 nm. This is one hundred times smaller than a tenth of a micron.

The renowned UK science journal, The Lancet published paper concluding that “Small aerosol particles smaller than 5 μm in aerodynamic size are most likely to remain” following filtering of the air.

The randomized clinical trial (RCT) is recognized as the most credible research design for clinical investigation. The goal of the RCT is to achieve valid comparison of the effects of an investigational treatment or treatments with the control treatment (standard of care) in the target patient population. Bias can be reduced by concealing the randomization sequence from the investigators at the time of obtaining consent from potential trial participants. Allocation concealment is a very simple maneuver that can be incorporated in the design of any trial and that can always be implemented.

This means that the only way to remove bias from scientific research in the medical field is with randomized clinical trials. Contrary to popular belief, every single RCT ever performed on mask usage and prevention of infection for laboratory-confirmed influenza, the common cold, or other respiratory viruses shows that masks are ineffective.

There is a sum total of zero randomized clinical trials showing that masks prevent any of the aforementioned illnesses. As you read through the following trial summaries and their conclusions, recall the damage we have already knowingly inflicted upon the population, and the health risks of the shutdowns that we have already consciously accepted in our quest to “trust the science.””

Jacobs, J. L. et al. (2009) “Use of surgical face masks to reduce the incidence of the common cold among health care workers in Japan: A randomized controlled trial,” American Journal of Infection Control, Volume 37, Issue 5, 417–419.

N95-masked health-care workers (HCW) were significantly more likely to experience headaches. Face mask use in HCW was not demonstrated to provide benefit in terms of cold symptoms or getting colds.

“Among 2862 randomized participants, 2371 completed the study and accounted for 5180 HCW-seasons. … Among outpatient health care personnel, N95 respirators vs medical masks as worn by participants in this trial resulted in no significant difference in the incidence of laboratory-confirmed influenza.

Long, Y. et al. (2020) “Effectiveness of N95 respirators versus surgical masks against influenza: A systematic review and meta-analysis,” J Evid Based Med. 2020; 1–9.

“A total of six RCTs involving 9,171 participants were included. There were no statistically significant differences in preventing laboratory-confirmed influenza, laboratory-confirmed respiratory viral infections, laboratory-confirmed respiratory infection, and influenza-like illness using N95 respirators and surgical masks. Meta-analysis indicated a protective effect of N95 respirators against laboratory-confirmed bacterial colonization (RR = 0.58, 95% CI 0.43-0.78). The use of N95 respirators compared with surgical masks is not associated with a lower risk of laboratory-confirmed influenza.”

Cowling, B. et al. (2010) “Face masks to prevent transmission of influenza virus: A systematic review,” Epidemiology and Infection, 138(4), 449-456.

In the meta-analysis of the clinical studies, we found no significant difference between N95 respirators and surgical masks in associated risk of (a) laboratory-confirmed respiratory infection, (b) influenza-like illness, or (c) reported work-place absenteeism.”
