THREAD – Nuremberg 2: What a Real Inquiry into the Response to COVID Would Look Like

Given the magnitude of the harm that’s been done, the public deserves to know exactly who knew and did what, when, and why in the days leading up to the lockdowns of spring 2020 and beyond. 1/ Image
Though it may not be politically feasible, ideally an inquiry into the response to COVID would take the form of an international tribunal. Below are just some of the many disturbing questions to which any leader who claims to represent the public ought to demand answers. 2/
1. Why did the CDC suddenly adopt “measures to increase social distance” as official policy in 2004, contrary to all the epidemiological guidance it had developed throughout the 20th century? 3/
2. Who was behind the campaign to export the concept of “lockdown” to Liberia and Sierra Leone in 2014? 4/
3. Some intelligence reports have indicated that members of the western national security community were aware a new virus had emerged in China by fall 2019. What was being said about the virus at that time? 5/
4. If some national security officials had been worrying about a new virus in China since fall 2019, how could they have possibly believed China’s two-month lockdown of Wuhan eliminated the virus several months later? 6/
5. By January 2020, tips began to emerge that the World Health Organization was planning to recreate China’s lockdowns across the world, starting in Italy. When and on what basis did the World Health Organization make this decision? 7/
michaelpsenger.substack.com/p/the-dragnet-… Image
6. Lockdowns had been ruled out by the pandemic plans of the WHO and every developed nation. Why weren’t these pandemic plans followed? 8/
7. Why were health security officials talking about “curfews of indefinite duration” by February 24, 2020? 9/
8. Why does the WHO’s February 2020 report rely on flagrant logical fallacies in its promulgation of China’s lockdown measures as global policy? 10/
9. Why was the current Director of National Intelligence sitting next to China’s CDC director at the Event 201 simulation of a coronavirus pandemic in October 2019, just weeks before a real coronavirus pandemic emerged? 11/
michaelpsenger.substack.com/p/the-propheti… Image
10. Former White House COVID Coordinator Deborah Birx has made conflicting statements about how she got her job. The former Deputy National Security Advisor offered her a job in the White House as far back as Nov 2019. How was Birx chosen for this? 12/
11. Who was behind the terror campaign of fake videos showing Wuhan residents spontaneously dying and convulsing in the streets in January and February 2020? 13/
12. Why is there no record of the hero doctor Li Wenliang before he appeared in Chinese state media at the end of January 2020? On what basis did western media outlets adopt this story as true? 14/
redstate.com/michael_thau/2… Image
13. High-level national security officials have stated that Covid came from a lab in Wuhan. At the same time, high-level scientific officials have stated it is “molecularly impossible” for Covid to have come from there. Why the disconnect? 15/
14. Why has overwhelming peer-reviewed evidence that COVID was already spreading globally by fall 2019 been so widely downplayed by federal officials and major media outlets? 16/
15. Reports have revealed that military leaders saw COVID as a unique opportunity to test propaganda techniques on the public. Who advised western leaders to use military-grade propaganda on their own people? 17/
16. Some officials in the UK later expressed contrition about the fear campaigns that the UK Government used on its own people to convince them to support Covid mandates. How was the decision to use these fear campaigns made? 18/
17. Who was behind the massive bot and astroturf campaigns to popularize lockdowns among western citizens and officials in March 2020? 19/
18. How many deaths were caused by the WHO’s initial guidance on mechanical ventilators, which cited Chinese journal articles advising ventilators as the “first choice” for those hospitalized with Covid? 20/
19. The initial guidance from the WHO advised using mechanical ventilators not necessarily for the patient’s benefit, but to control the spread of the virus. Why was the WHO advising doctors to violate the Hippocratic Oath? 21/
20. Why were numerous, credible predictions of famine, human rights disasters, and economic collapse as a result of lockdowns ignored at the time they were implemented? 22/
21. Why was natural immunity to COVID so long downplayed? 23/
22. Why were initial seroprevalence studies demonstrating COVID’s ubiquity downplayed? 24/
23. Why were beaches and other outdoor spaces closed? 25/
24. Why was the public kept in the dark about low early estimates of COVID’s infection fatality rate? 26/
25. What was the source of the guidance to move patients who were still sick into nursing homes? 27/
26. Remdesivir and midazolam were initially widely used, but didn’t lead to positive health outcomes. How was the decision made to use these over other treatment protocols? 28/
27. Leading officials have made conflicting statements as to whether the goal of lockdowns was to eliminate the virus, slow the spread, or buy time for vaccines. What was the actual goal they had in mind at the time they implemented these policies? 29/
28. Why did key public health officials make statements about using the response to COVID to advance non-health-related policy goals? 30/
29. How was the decision made to suppress and censor scientific opinions that dissented from lockdowns? 31/
30. Why were so many federal officials so intimately involved in the censorship of dissenting COVID opinions on social media? 32/
31. Why were social media executives given Top Secret US Security Clearances for purposes of censoring content, and what was the vetting process, if any, for these clearances? 33/
32. Why were federal officials working so closely with Twitter to censor legal speech by American citizens while an AI expert with deep ties to the military of America’s chief adversary was on Twitter’s Board of Directors? 34/
33. Why did elite western newspapers, media networks, and public health leaders so diligently repeat the absurd line that China had eliminated Covid by shutting down one city for two months? 35/
34. Why did elite western publications begin explicitly urging the public to adopt a response to COVID that was more like China’s? 36/
michaelpsenger.substack.com/p/the-gall-of-… Image
35. Why were mechanical drones initially deployed by various states and countries to monitor lockdown compliance? 37/
36. Why did masks shift from being not advised to being mandatory? 38/
37. The New York Times confirmed that at the standard cycle threshold level used for PCR testing, 85 to 90% of Covid cases were false positives. How did this practice become standard? 39/
38. Why were widely-known and publicized problems with PCR testing and comorbidities ignored for purposes of counting COVID deaths? 40/
39. Why did key public health officials so quickly shift from saying vaccines would prevent Covid to saying proof of vaccination should be mandatory to partake in everyday activities? 41/
40. Why has there been so little public discussion of China’s influence on the global response to COVID, despite the FBI Director’s disclosure that Chinese officials were “aggressively urging support for China’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis?” 42/
41. Why were governments across the western world so deferential to Neil Ferguson and Imperial College during the response to COVID, despite Imperial having the closest relationship with China of any western university? 43/
42. Why has the editor-in-chief of the Lancet been so publicly deferential to China? 44/
43/ Why did Bill Gates express such admiration for China’s response to Covid? 45/
44/ How did a 40-year member of the British Communist Party with no background in epidemiology become a leading advisor to the UK Government on COVID, and why was she recently promoted to lead the WHO’s nudge unit? 46/
45. Why did economists at leading universities assume that a short, sharp lockdown would “eliminate the resurgence risk” when the policy had no precedent? 47/
46. Why did politicians and public health officials demonstrate so little concern for following their own COVID rules? 48/
47. If COVID was actually deadly enough to kill millions and justify an indefinite state of emergency, why has so little effort been expended to hold China accountable for its initial coverup of that virus? 49/
Though many in positions of power would prefer we forgot, the strict lockdowns that consumed the world in 2020 are extremely well documented. Until we have real answers as to how exactly they happened, and why, we won’t be living in a real democracy. /end

Thread – How Donald Trump shut down America: Reexamining Trump’s role in the response to COVID

Trump knew lockdown was a lie. He did it anyway. 1/ Image

THREAD – The Great COVID Ventilator Death Cover-up

Tens of thousands of Americans died after being placed on mechanical ventilators in spring 2020. It’s long past time we got real answers as to how many were killed this way. 1/ Image
Early COVID data from China had suggested that ventilators would need to be used widely in the treatment of COVID patients, and this led to a major rush by politicians and hospitals to procure tens of thousands of ventilators. A small sample of the headlines from that period. 2/ ImageImageImage
However, it soon became clear that ventilators were being vastly overused. Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell acted as an early whistleblower, sounding the alarm in a widely-shared video. 3/

THREAD – The Ultimate COVID Video Library

A semi-chronological, open-access library of the most important and viral video clips from throughout the response to COVID. This thread has no end, so videos after the first hundred or so may be added ad hoc. Be sure to bookmark! 1/ Image
Jan 2020 – Shortly after Xi Jinping announces the strictest lockdown in history in Wuhan, China, videos begin going viral all over the world supposedly showing Wuhan residents spontaneously collapsing and falling to their deaths from the new virus. 2/
Feb 2020 – In some of the most powerful propaganda of the entire COVID saga, viral videos purport to show CCP officials welding Wuhan residents into their homes to prevent them from going outside during lockdown. 3/

Zeynep Tufekci and Jeremy Howard played a decisive role shifting CDC guidance and ushering in mask mandates across America. Zeynep’s role in the COVID story goes far deeper than most realize. 1/
After three years of speculation, an authoritative gold-standard Cochrane review including results from 78 peer-reviewed RCTs confirmed that across populations, masks, regardless of type, made “little to no difference” in preventing COVID or flu. 2/
The Cochrane review seemed to settle the matter. Mask opponents had their trump card. But alas, the pro-mask establishment responded with a trump card of their own: an NYT op-ed by Zeynep Tufekci: “Here’s Why the Science Is Clear That Masks Work” 3/

BREAKING: Wet market theorists find another poor animal in Wuhan to scapegoat.

The problem with every one of these zoonotic origin studies—like the lab leak studies—they’re too wedded to the idea COVID began in Wuhan simply because of Xi’s lockdown. 1/
Once you see it, it’s incredibly obvious. They ignore countless peer-reviewed studies showing vast, global early spread many months before the initial COVID theatrics in Wuhan.

Here’s just one of those peer-reviewed studies showing global early spread. 2/
Another peer-reviewed study demonstrating vast, global early spread many months before Wuhan, which the authors of these wet-market studies have brazenly and repeatedly ignored. 3/

THREAD: Balaji Srinivasan: The Man Who Couldn’t Wait for COVID to Ring In the ‘New Normal’

Balaji’s ‘prophecies’ may be the best evidence yet that there was a plan to recreate China’s COVID response globally, down to the particular details of how the world would transform. 1/ Image
Going back to the initial weeks of 2020, prior to the western world’s first lockdown in Lombardy, Italy, on February 21, it’s remarkable how normal things were. The Atlantic, for example, published a great piece titled You’re Likely to theatlantic.com/health/archive…twitter.com/i/web/status/1… Image
There was Xi’s lockdown in Wuhan, but most commentators opined on how brutal and illiberal it was. One thing virtually no one in the world was doing prior to the lockdown of Lombardy was hoping the rest of the world would adopt China’s lockdown policy. 3/
