What Government Is Asking Americans To Believe And What The Lockdowns Are Uncovering
By Bill Sardi
Americans are being asked to believe the implausible. Methinks the current pandemic is a test of political gullibility.
Says a recent TV news report: “Any way you cut it, doctors say there are virtually no flu cases at all this season, a phenomenon being called one of the great mysterious vanishing acts of a virus they’ve ever seen.”
We are told the reason for that is because of flu vaccination combined with face mask use and other social distancing measures. But that would mean those measures are selective for the flu and not the coronavirus. Preposterous! A face mask can detect and filter out influenza but not coronavirus? If you believe this, I’ve got a bridge in New York to sell you.
Actually, the American Lung Association reveals (now taken off their website) that as few as 257, 411, 727, and 274 deaths from the flu occurred in recent times (see graphic at end of this report). Grow All You Can Eat i… DK Best Price: $3.99 Buy New $8.30 (as of 04:20 EST – Details)
In other words, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been delivering bogus information about flu-related deaths for years in order to scare the public to get vaccinated. Very few deaths from the flu occurred in many years.
The often-quoted number is 36,000 flu-related deaths per year. The CDC was lying to the American public all this time. The annual flu epidemic was contrived. It never was. That is what the current pandemic reveals.
Here is another uncredible
So, what is the difference between a patient who has a false-positive test for COVID-19 and a patient who is infected but is asymptomatic?
As one pharmaceutical researcher writing in the British Medical Journal:
“Clinically we cannot tell the difference between a pre-symptomatic individual, an asymptomatic “carrier” and a false positive result from a healthy individual, because by definition none of these individuals have symptoms.” The fact is, “screening tens of millions of individuals means that even a low false positive rate translates to a large number of uninfected individuals being potentially told they have “asymptotic COVID-19.”
So, what is the use of getting tested?
Unreliable testing is being used by State governors to justify draconian lockdown measures. It is the lockdowns themselves that cause the excess deaths. Circuitous illogic.
The number of positive tests does not mean Americans are ill
Testing numbers are also meaningless since increased testing produces more positive tests. Unless an entire population is tested, there is no way of knowing what the incidence of disease is (how many in 100). Case numbers only tell us the intensity of testing going on, not how sick the population is. And the case numbers and death numbers are widely disparate. The news media knows this but continues to erroneously publish that infectious cases are on the rise. Better to wear two masks rather than one, right?

All tests are flawed
All COVID-19 diagnostic tests are seriously flawed. Most people suffering commonly listed symptoms of COVID-19 presume they have the virus when they may not have a coronavirus infection whatsoever. The Center for Infectious Disease Research & Policy notes that only 1 of 32 people (3%) that carry COVID-19 coronavirus have a replicating virus in their respiratory tract.
And did those who vaccinated you inform you that you may continue to test positive for 3 months after testing and not be infectious to others? And for that, you and whoever lives with you will be lockdown down in quarantine for 2 weeks. If you believe this, I’m sending that contract to buy the bridge in New York in exchange for the deed to your house.
If A then B, then A must have caused B, right?
There is no evidence that symptoms are caused by COVID-19, only that they are associated with this mutant coronavirus. The entire pandemic is a ruse. The masses are having the wool pulled over their eyes.
There are three primary ways to test for COVID-19 infection: 1) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, 2) antibody test and 3) antigen test.
- COVID-19 antibody tests are wrong half of the time. This is now widely reported but the tests continue to be used.
- Rapid antigen testing also yields false positive results.
- The widely-used PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test obtained from a nasal swab for asymptomatic patients may simply be false positives. One PCR test conducted among 20,000 subjects found 15 positives. Upon re-testing, 14 of the 15 were found to be negative.
- Another report in the British Medical Journal found only 2 positives among 7189 subjects antigen tested, which scales up to 30 per 100,000 when the quoted rate of positives is 250/100,000 in Britain. Something is amiss.

Best Price: $5.95 Buy New $11.29 (as of 05:20 EST – Details) Testing is largely being used to spread fear in the population and justify lockdowns of populations. Don’t be a guinea pig and line up for COVID-19 tests. The odds that you will be placed under needless quarantine or advised to get vaccinated are high.
News reports claim thousands are flocking to sports stadiums to be tested and inoculated are nothing more than propaganda. Here in California the police have formed road stops, like for “driving under the influence,” only they are traps for the public to get tested. Americans are being herded under the guise health authorities who “know what’s best for them.”
COVID-19: Culling nursing home patients
In reality COVID-19 is a nursing home disease. A study of COVID-19 deaths in Indiana reveals a death rate of less than 2 in 100 (1.7%) among non-institutionalized infected adults over 60 years of age and just 1 death in 10,000 (0.0001) among non-institutionalized adults under age 40.
There are ~37,564 nursing home residents in Indiana out of 6.7 million residents in Indiana, or 6-10ths of 1% (0.006) of Indiana’s total population, yet they represented 54% of Indiana’s COVID-19-related deaths in April of 2020. The average age of a COVID-19 decedents was 76.9 years. COVID-19 is an old-age infection, largely explained by weak immunity among older adults.
The idea you may give COVID-19 to your grandmother because you didn’t wear a mask is misleading. Grandparents are being exposed to pathogenic viruses and bacteria all the time. It is a weakened immune system that is the cause of infection.
And yet another absurdity – – we are now being told even “vaccinated” Americans need to wear face masks and follow lockdown measures.
All the precautions (face masks, social distancing, lockdowns) make a miniscule contribution to preventing death in the population at large regardless of how effective they are purported to be. Face masks and social distancing are not life savers, they are only intended to slow the spread of any infectious disease.

Bend over for COVID-19
Among the more bizarre practices being forced on the public are anal swab tests for COVID-19.
No entrance to U.S. from overseas flights without testing
And recognize, it’s perfectly OK to enter the U.S. with tuberculosis or Ebola, just not COVID-19! So, you can’t leave the airport without being tested first. Look up the definition of hoodwinked.
Where did all the heart attacks and cases of cancer go?
Another misrepresentation that the public is supposed to believe is that hundreds of thousands of patients are experiencing heart attacks or dying of cancer because they are fearful of going to the hospital where they may acquire a COVID-19 infection. The masses are fearful of hospitals for good reason. About a third of the cases of COVID-19 come from contacts with healthcare personnel, mostly at hospitals.
We are told that fear of catching COVID-19 at hospitals keeps patients with heart attacks at home. A 50% drop in hospital-diagnosed heart attacks is reported. Out of fear, cardiac patients are said to be suffering with their chest pain at home. But this investigator knows better.
Heart attacks that aren’t heart attacks
Two middle-aged friends of mine who were told they survived “widow-maker” heart attacks described to me symptoms that turned out to be gall bladder attacks. When a gallstone gets lodged in the neck of the gall bladder, intense chest pain may result and mislead people to thinking they are having a heart attack. Even doctors are fooled by this. The blood test used to confirm damage to heart muscle, troponin, is also elevated from an acute gall bladder attack. Lazy doctors are misled by the elevated troponin levels into thinking it is a heart attack.
Maybe these missing heart attacks and cancer were never real
Maybe all these heart attacks, cancers, and other maladies represent needless care. Unnecessary testing and surgeries amount to $200 billion year
The pandemic has drastically reduced the number of newly detected cancers. In one study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, six different types of cancer (breast, lung, esophageal, colorectal, pancreatic, produced 4310 new cases weekly. That number dropped to 2310 weekly during the pandemic.
However, this doesn’t necessarily mean all these undiagnosed cases represented bona fide cases of cancer. Oncologists say more advanced cases of cancer will be detected and there will be excess cancer deaths. But that is not altogether true. There is massive over-diagnosis of cancer.
- It is estimated 0-54% of mammogram-detected cancer are over-diagnosed, meaning they don’t need to be treated, have ranged from 0 to 54 percent. Mammograms are more likely to cause unneeded treatment than to save lives.
- A large percentage of patients undergoing surgery for lung cancer did not need the operation
- Thyroid gland removal to remove abnormal nodules is often unnecessary. Death from thyroid cancer is only 2% over a 25-year period.
- Most prostate cancer surgery is unnecessary.
- Just the mention of the word “cancer” evokes enough fear for patients to demand surgery to get rid of it. When doctors say “cancer” they often mean there is pre-cancer, called neoplasia or hyperplasia (abnormal cells).
Many other medical and surgical procedures are unnecessary.
- Cardiac stents do not save lives or reduce odds of a heart attack among stable patients.
- Spinal fusion at $40 billion annual price tag is not more effective than non-operative treatment.
- There are many other examples.
What the COVID-19 lockdown is uncovering is all the needless medical care that is delivered. Diseases and deaths aren’t vanishing, like the flu. They never were. The disease incidence and death numbers were never real.
Historically, doctor strikes result in a steep decline in deaths. This is a repeated fact. Getting rid of doctors eradicates “ghost” diseases and deaths. Doctors were locked down and look what happened, again!
