One of the most vital issues of all is the matter of “trusting the science”. It is inevitable that we all rely on what we are told has been “scientifically proven”. But, mountains of evidence proves that the world of science has been deeply corrupted, yet the majority of the public do NOT realize this critically important fact. It is a tragic mistake to believe what we are told regarding the most important aspects of our lives. Please do NOT blindly trust the “settled science”, the corrupted medical establishment, or heavily controlled corporate media.. Honest scientists and doctors have bravely warned of this systemic corruption, but most people have never heard anything other than what the corrupt establishment wants them to hear.

1. Dr. Marcia Angell, Editor in Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ),

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine”

2. Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world.

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”.. ..“Journals have devolved into information laundering operations for the pharmaceutical industry”

3. Dr. Herbert L. Ley Jr, former Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration

“The FDA protects the big drug companies, and is subsequently rewarded, and using the government’s police powers, they attack those who threaten the big drug companies.  People think that the FDA is protecting them.  It isn’t.  What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it is doing are as different as day and night.”

4. Dr. Raeford Brown, chair of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Committee on Analgesics and Anesthetics

“Congress is owned by pharma.”

5. A group calling itself CDC Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence and Ethics in Research, or (CDC SPIDER), put a list of complaints in writing in a letter to CDC Chief of Staff. The members of the group have elected to file the complaint anonymously for fear of retribution.

“It appears that our mission is being influenced and shaped by outside parties and rogue interests… and Congressional intent for our agency is being circumvented by some of our leaders. What concerns us most, is that it is becoming the norm and not the rare exception,” the letter states. “These questionable and unethical practices threaten to undermine our credibility and reputation as a trusted leader in public health.”

6. Dr. John P. A. Ioannidis, Editor-in-chief, European Journal of Clinical Investigation (2010 - Present)

“most current published research findings are false.”

7.  Dr William Thompson Senior Scientist at the CDC (Center for Disease Control),

“I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.”

8. Assistant Professor Ray Moynihan , one of the leaders of The BMJ's campaign:

“When we want to decide on a medicine or a surgery, a lot of the evidence we used to inform that decision is biased," "It cannot be trusted. Because so much of that has been produced and funded by the manufacturers of those healthcare products.”

9. Dr. Fiona Godlee, editor of the BMJ,  

"I think we have to call it what it is. It is the corruption of the scientific process.”

10. Susanna Rees, an editorial assistant with a medical writing agency until 2002

'Medical writing agencies go to great lengths to disguise the fact that the papers they ghostwrite and submit to journals and conferences are ghostwritten on behalf of pharmaceutical companies and not by the named authors,' she wrote. 'There is a relatively high success rate for ghostwritten submissions - not outstanding, but consistent.'

11. Sydney Brenner, winner Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2002.

“And of course all the academics say we’ve got to have peer review. But I don’t believe in peer review because I think it’s very distorted and as I’ve said, it’s simply a regression to the mean…..I think peer review is hindering science. In fact, I think it has become a completely corrupt system.”

12. Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, professor at Stanford University Medical School, a physician and epidemiologist

“when people say follow the science, what I’ve seen is they often mean censor scientists who don’t agree with some scientists…the people who are sort of controlling policy.” 

13. Kamran Abbasi, executive editor British Medical Journal

“Science is being suppressed for political and financial gain. Covid-19 has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale, and it is harmful to public health.”

Science is for sale. I perused and obtained a degree in chemistry and physics because I was in search of the truth. I finally found truth in the Bible.

As an aside, while driving my kid to school this morning... I got behind a car with a Pfizer bumper sticker. Didn't even know they made those things. Yikes. The cult is stronger than I realized. I thought the bumper stickers of "In Fauci, We Trust" were over the top. I was wrong :)

How perverted is our culture. How sad is their desire to run after false gods when the Lord Almighty is calling them to come home.

“Because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.”

This is it in a nut shell, just as you say. And as an addition ... there can can be no law without truth. That why we put the hand on the Bible, and say, "so help me God".

Perjury is violation of the Ninth Commandment, the bearing false witness. Lying is a violation of the first four Commandments as lying does not glorify God.

Don't miss this 30 minute HIGHWIRE segment - Del Bigtree and Jeffery Jaxen present excellent highlights of the DeSantis Grand Jury press release and comments by Public Health Integrity Committee. - At the end, Bigtree brilliantly calls out Steven Templeton, Jay Bhattachary, Martin Kulldorff, Joseph Fraiman, who's stated goal is to get people who have lost faith in the "system" to "BELIEVE" in getting vaccinated again - a position that implies every other vaccine is perfectly safe and effective.

gbdeclaration.org - signed 10/4/20.

In it they state they are concerned about lowered childhood vaccinations rates. Therefore they still believe these vaccines are necessary and safe. They also, state the non-vulnerable should live their life as normal, “building immunity in the population until reaching herd immunity-i.e. the point at which the rate of new infections is stable-and that this can be assisted by (but is not dependent upon) a vaccine.”

They also, recommend frequent testing of staff and visitors in nursing homes(which we all know are not accurate).

Battachary & Kuldorff are signers. So, these people on DeSantis team are still for vaccines… and using the inaccurate PCR testing.

That is the one truth spoken here, we can no longer rely on institutionalized medical judgement. They have been so corrupted and politicized. Too few physicians stood their grounds to uphold their oath. Profit over lives! Fear over righteousness. Sad, sad state of affairs, global pain and suffering caused by governments and Pharma!!

About 35-40 years ago, there was a big issue in the science community because some of them were using an early form of computer modeling and presenting the results as facts, never having done any real-world tests. I only know about it because my parents were in the medical field and it was reported at a continuing education seminar. it was considered a huge breach of integrity to the older medical community and repudiated by the same. How can you state a scientific theory as fact when you have no real-world proof. Things have certainly gone down hill from there.

Expand full comment

Pre-COVID there was an individual scientist who started re-creating scientific trials that had been published in all kinds of scientific journals (medical and other fields also), to see if he could replicate the results.

Now I know you're gonna be shocked about this, but hold on: almost none of the peer-reviewed study results were able to be replicated.

Shocked! I'm SHOCKED, I say!

Funny story - a couple of years ago we hosted one of my son's fellow Marines for the holidays. At the dinner table I revealed my skeptical position about man-made Climate Change.

He insisted that he knew I was wrong because in high school he'd done a paper about it, and he'd gotten his facts from Google.

So I mentioned the scientist who had been unable to replicate the results for 100's of peer reviewed papers.

The look on his face was priceless as he exclaimed "So you mean you don't TRUST GOOGLE???"

No son, I don't.

I refused to stand on their “x” and purposely went the wrong way down the stupid aisle. I also hugged as many people as I could find that I knew while in those grocery stores much to the horror of the onlookers. I just smiled and shopped, maskless of course. 😉

Yeah....I get to the masked cashier stifled behind 12 inches of plexiglass and a guy lines up about 8 feet away from me. I said, "Dude, I ain't scared. You can move up." He did. Also, I kept telling people who were masked that I couldn't understand a word they were saying. Invariably, they'd pull it down. That was fun.

I think I’m going to start saying to masked people that I’m hearing impaired and can’t understand what they are saying.

Yeah, AS one of those cashiers working with a life-saving Plexi shield in front of me, I ALWAYS tried, and still do try, to get them to take off the filthy face diaper. I would straight up tell them "I can't understand a word you're saying, you need to take off that mask". I posted SIGNS telling them to remove it even. Nawww, I mean Baaa, they were MARRIED to those things!

And if you can believe it, yesterday December 15 2022 I STILL had this filthy man come up wearing TWO filthy masks and big floppy plastic gloves. So sanitary! I told my co-worker as we were counting his filthy money that I was going to give it a little lick before putting it in the drawer, to improve my immune system.

In recent months, whenever I encounter a plexiglas shield at a business, I tell them that they should remove them, or ask them when are they going to take those things down, and remind them we spent all our lives without them before this...I’m just getting blank stares, though. One employee at the credit union told me the employees ‘like’ having them up. More successful ‘divide and conquer’, I guess.

We ate INSIDE a restaurant (in TX) in May of 2020. I have to admit it felt funny, but obviously I am still alive. I can't remember whether or not we wore masks. We live in NC, where dining rooms were closed for a very long time. I actually know of local one restaurant that still will not allow people to eat in their dining room.

CMCM. I actually became a “personal shopper” for a lot of my neighbors who were frantically terrified not wanting to go into any stores and shop.

I essentially became an essential entrepreneur.

Just me and the workers sauntering around the empty store.

It had that library kind of quiet.

I got to know the clerks and chatted with them.

Got into the store with my gator covering my mouth but lost that after one minute in.

Arriving back to the neighbors with goods in hand they seemed flabbergasted that I had survived.

Many had their sprays and disinfectants ready on the table to spray down each can of beans and carton of milk 😂

Remember the disinfecting of each grocery item while wearing your latex gloves

I got thrown out of an estate sale by the 2 organizers for not having a mask. They were very rude so I went on line and gave their company a very bad review. Glad to hear they are not all like that. I toyed around with doing that business but realized it’s really hard work and I have enough junk of my own without getting more ideas.

I dunno - although the one-way aisle thing was indeed pretty stupid, the emergency taping off of non-essential item aisles in the EXACT SAME STORE, might just top it. (Apparently based on the $cience that COVID was only present on non-essential items' aisles.)

Also, let us not forget the COVID-theatre of wearing masks while walking thru the restaurants only to plop down at your tables and take them off again when seated - as if COVID could not drop below 5 feet of altitude somehow.

Trump's a fool and I voted for him. The bigger problem is that regardless of how they try to spin the midterm results the GOP is a train wreck. I'd love for DeSantis to run for president but the best place for him is as governor of Florida where he remains a bulwark against federal encroachment on state and individual rights. President DeSantis becomes another swamp creature by default.

The problem then becomes the lack of viable Trump alternatives in 2024. There are none. Meanwhile, the DNC will continue to mock and to laugh at us by teasing Joe Redux as their candidate.

Desantis is term limited, he'd only be in office two years past 2024. He needs to be developing a successor to keep the ball rolling in FL, even if he doesn't run.

That's the crux of the problem. Trump IS the default candidate because there are no viable alternatives beyond Ron DeSantis. It concerns me because I know a few people who consider themselves to be "former democrats" but who will never vote for Trump.

One person in my former home state of Michigan actually voted for Whitmer because she viewed Tudor Dixon as a Trump acolyte despite my numerous reminders of Whitmer's disastrous authoritarianism. Among other things, she doesn't understand (refuses, to be more accurate) what Dobbs actually means and still believes the "1/6 Insurrection" nonsense. It's deeply troubling and probably describes a lot of people.

The Trump moment as a whole reminds me of what Lysander Spooner said about the Constitution:

"But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain - that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist."

Trump was either entirely clueless as to what his own DoD was up to or he knew it and facilitated it.

However you slice it, both explain his actions and inactions in 2020 and both disqualify.

Well, I wouldn’t call him a “fool” - frankly, I refrain from calling anyone a fool. Trump is a showman and always has been. In fact, some of us liked that he was different from all the other zeroes on the stage in 2015. They were dull and boring; watching them speak was like watching grass grow. I always thought his approach was genius - he put them off guard for a ready retort. Little Marco, Sleepy Joe, Low energy Jeb. They gasped and stuttered and couldn’t gather their thoughts. It was amusing to watch. AND, He loves poking the fake news bear. The announcement about censorship was old news to those of us who’ve been part of the great awakening. His ultimate purpose is to reach the normies who have been propagandized by networks that editorialize everything including the real news. It’s a hard and arduous task. Some were rescued and it showed in the midterms. The people ARE waking up and beginning to realize that it’s the results that are most important.

I agree. I think Trump is smarter than most people realize. He's the master of misdirection and isn't afraid to look stupid to be effective at it. Remember, it has been pointed out he does seemingly random and stupid things to expose who his enemies are. I think he is going to have the last word. He is playing 3-D chess and the rest are playing, at best, regular chess and at worst, most people, checkers.

I for one DO NOT want to lose DeSantis here in Florida, he’s really on a roll and we need to “ cement” all of his good works before he has to move on. We need to be sure that our next Governor is cut from the same cloth as DeSantis is. We can’t lose focus here. We are very Blessed.😇

I'm actually starting to be concerned about this as well: Ron DeSantis is the best we have, but he's just one man and the Swamp is very persuasive.

I've personally known many very good men who went to DC only to be totally corrupted. (Sen. James Inhofe, I'm thinking of you and half a dozen more "conservatives.")

DeSantis running against Trump in 2024 will anger the MAGA army, maybe not so the wavering Conservative movement, but he won’t get the MAGA vote and that’s huge. DeSantis is a remarkable governor but he’s not ready for prime time. He’s not well-known in all of America YET but give him time. He will be brought into the main stream with a Republican House. He won’t be like Trump having billions of his own at his disposal. He will be taking donations and growing a payback list. Isn’t that what we liked about Trump’s not being beholden to donors? Take a breath and stick with the winner we have in Trump. We’ve all benefitted from Trump’s presidential actions in more ways than we know and he’s the ONLY one that can clean up the swamp. Stop whining about his theatrical antics (if that’s what you want to call them) and let him do his job. Jerez, it reminds me of how ppl hated his “mean tweets”.

Yesterday someone suggested he was deliberately drawing fire away from DeSantis.

That is the only reasonable explanation I can think of for his "announcement."

Whether or not that is his intent, it sure is working. 🤷

That would be some 3D chess if Ron and Don are working together. Finally something strategic from our side.

It's hard to believe, but not impossible. It would enable Trump to get revenge without the hassle of being president again. He could continue to do what he does best from outside the white house, while DeSantis could benefit from what Trump discovered while he was inside the white house.

The 1st half of the announcement was so bad its hard to believe it was used at all. The 2nd half, as many pointed out yesterday, & Jeff this morning, is not any better albeit for different reasons.

Exactly! But one of my biggest criticisms/complaints about the Republican Party is that they just can't seem to join together and be cohesive when it counts. The Democrats band together like superglue and after some initial scuffling around, they eventually all get on the same page and operate as a singular unit. The Republicans just never manage to do this, the party always seems somewhat fragmented. Which is why they can't win more reliably.

The bottom line is we just don't know what he's thinking. But the announcements are just too out of touch to be real. I can't believe he's that inept. Time will tell, I guess. 🤷

Interesting parallel with the Japan/ivermectin angle.

YES!

"That is: peer review is not in fact a quality control; it is just a way for establishment scientists to police and enforce orthodox narratives."

I learned this back in the Obama years when I went down the rabbit hole after reading about a handful of scientists whose careers were ruined when they pushed back against the climate change narrative. Recall 'science deniers' was tossed about frequently by the Obama administration at anyone who was not buying what they were selling about 'global warming'.

And The Lancet, if I recall correctly, was one of the journals who had to issue a retraction in 2020.

I actually considered a career in science when I was in HS. Glad I went another way, I would have been fired a lot.

I also wonder what would my stance on all this be if I had kept to that path. I once was a mathematics major, pre-med interested in epidemiology. I switched paths my senior year in college. In part due to the sense that I was not sure I wanted to surround myself with the other persons I saw as pre-med (no offense in general but there is a certain type of personality among this group). I have always been a skeptic. I think I would not have worked well with this group.

On the other hand, I still retain my curiousity about both medical and statistical matters. I have been both fascinated and horrified by the past few years.

You were wise to steer clear! I read this yesterday. Apparently they are having troubles getting new doctors into the field of epidemiology. Perhaps because the last three years have shown it's worthless and full of crap?

My guess that would be that they are not 'people' people. Have read a number of articles over the years about whether or not you can teach 'bedside manners', as some med schools were trying. Many people with high intelligence, which you need to get through med school, are 'book smart' but lack common sense and don't relate well to those not in their circle, My nephew is a brilliant computer scientist, genius level IQ but he has little common sense and is socially awkward. I used to work with some docs who invested in start ups and they were terrible investors. Assumed that because they were smart, they could tell the founders what to do and they knew nothing about the business world. Constantly demanding information and then not processing it. And from my experiences with my parents in and out of hospitals in the last decade, they are terrible listeners. There are exceptions, of course. I loved my primary care doc until he bought the shot BS. He was a people person and (was) a good listener. but evidently he prizes his corporate HC job over his integrity.

I have a good friend who decided to get a PhD in statistics his field precisely because he realized none...not a single one of his advisors and other professors knew anything at all about statistics. He had smooth sailing with his studies and dissertation because no one appeared to have enough knowledge to evaluate or criticize what he said. It was amusing to watch.

I am not smart enough for that, lol. I loved science in HS, especially biology, as I had really good teachers and they fostered a love of asking questions, and digging deeper. But the college profs were more focused on rote memorization, and did not encourage discussion or like too many questions. Ended up with a business degree, as I had no idea what I wanted to do, but knew I hated being poor. Spent 8 years in retail management and hated it so went back for my MBA in finance. But I love research, and discovered I was good at asking questions, and finding answers.
