You think social distancing, mask wearing, toxic hand sanitizers and quarantines are keeping the numbers low?
You may as well believe that snapping your fingers keep the tigers away.
Such assumptions are based on erroneous predictive models that are also based on assumptions.1/
No one could dispute the importance of hygiene and sanitation when it comes to containing the spread of communicable diseases. But let's be clear - stop using boatloads of toxic hand sanitizers when good old soap and water will do just fine.2/
As for social distancing and mask wearing - there is no scientific basis for these practices. Isolating sick people is common sense. Isolating the healthy is nonsense.
Testing is problematic, because it is a highly inaccurate tool.3/
Testing is not a reliable tool to confirm clinical diagnosis. PCR tests are non-specific and can not measure active viral load. There are two problems with that:
1. A positive test can not confirm whether the pathogen resulting in symptoms is indeed SARS-Cov-2.4/
Could be any other pathogen, including other coronaviruses or influenza virus for that matter
2. The test can not distinguish between infectious and non-infectious viral nucleic acid, which means the test can not determine a person's infectious status.5/
PCR tests are prone to shockingly high rate of false positive results. Testing asymptomatic people is useless.
Since May there have been 233,000 tests done in AB. Only 7% of 10,000 are positive. That's about 160 positive tests!

Until public health officials figure out the true parameters and definition of "case" we will have the same problem - endless casedemic, because what they think they are testing for and what they are finding are two different things.

Imposing perpetual lockdowns and restrictions due to fear of overwhelming the healthcare system is nothing short of chasing a self-fulfilling prophecy.1/
Creating artificial conditions whereby the effects of systemic fear, stress, anxiety and depression resulting from disruptions in people's way of life as well as impending threat of lost livelihoods will most certainly generate a guaranteed quota of illness-stricken people. 2/
Physical and mental deterioration due to lack of access to adequate level of service for those dependent on the allopathic system will precipitate into the very fear used to justify the unsustainable restrictive measures.3/

It has been planned. Prove me wrong.
"Besides future pandemics, the seasonal flu currently infects 1 billion people every year, including 3-5 million severe cases, and causes 290 000 to 650 000 respiratory deaths."
Where the heck did the flu go this year?1/
Clearly the vaccine that has been in use for the past 70+ yrs didn't do a thing in eliminating the flu.Based on science we can confidently propose that the shot has greatly contributed to the expansion of flu-like illnesses through increased susceptibility&vaxx enhancement.2/
The claim that mask, social distancing and lockdowns are to be given the credit for virtually 'no flu' season is tremendously idiotic. This is rather superstition and certainly not science. 3/

I find this rather perplexing.
Note that this is from FDA's July 2020 update on recommendation regarding the SARS-CoV-2 assays and PCR testing guidelines.1/
The entire world was shut down in March 2020 and remain under serious restriction up to this day on account of a virus that is allegedly spreading like wildfire and claiming hundreds of thousands of lives around the globe. 2/
We are being bombarded with a daily count of positive cases and deaths attributed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, yet the FDA is telling us that as of July 28, 2020 acquisition of the virus from natural clinical specimens may still be unavailable. 3

So few words so much to between the lines!
This is from the FDA's update on testing guidelines current as of July 28, 2020.
Let's unpack this brief statement at try understand what it says and what it means.1/
The SARS-Cov-2 assay is INTENDED for the PRESUMPTIVE QUALITATIVE detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2.
Note the careful selection of keywords:
"intended" means resulting from intention or what is planned or proposed not necessarily what is established by 2/
way of evidence-based scientific inquiry or facts.
"presumptive" or based on presumption, or belief and probability not necessarily confirmed and factual.
Basically, the assay is meant to be used on the basis of presumption to detect the presence of viral RNA.3/

You think the Government cares about you? You think they are taking away your rights and liberties for your own good, in order to protect you from a virus that is nowhere to be "seen"?
Think harder!1/
What they are interested in is mind control. They want access right into the center of your very soul and get you to submit to anything they ask of you, to follow and obey orders no questions asked.2/
The Allan Memorial Hospital in Montreal is the infamous psychiatric facility where a team of hardhearted white turn coats under the wing of the Canadian government performed some of the most monstrous atrocities in the short medical history of this country. The goal?3/

In the 50-60's,childhood diseases such as chickenpox&measles were considered trivial illnesses& rite of passage for every child.Measles mortality was virtually '0' when in '63 the MMR vaccine was introduced&shortly became 1 of the main reasons for visits to the doctor's office.1/
Vaccines have done more harm than any other medical procedure. Over 4.4 billion dollars paid in compensation to vaccine injured individuals by U.S. vaccine injury compensation program. 2/
Canada doesn't even have one (except for Quebec), which means, if you or your loved ones suffer vaccine injury - you are on your own.
Vaccines create susceptible populations and graft all sorts of chronic diseases unnecessarily. Not only that.3/
