How the CDC deceived the American people with exaggerated "new cases" and death tolls
How many really know much about that PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) "test" being widely used by the CDC to tally "new cases" of COVID-19? PCR is the test that takes a nose swab. It’s the test given freely across the country and the test responsible for, by far, the greatest number of “new cases” recorded in the USA.
What follows is the "rest of the story" that the CDC will not tell you.
In the early 1980s while researching the HIV virus, the late Kary Mullis, PhD Biochemist, invented the PCR process as a researcher's tool to aid the study of viral diseases, their origins, and global extent. Ten years later Mullis received a Nobel Prize (Chemistry) for his achievement.
PCR was designed as a tool for virus researchers to track the provenance of extinct viruses. PCR looks for a match to an inert RNA strand of the target virus (a virus is an RNA critter... it can neither move nor replicate without the aid of a host it has infected).
To paraphrase Mullis, PCR cannot be used to detect a case of any disease.
Think about that, because CDC is tallying every PCR "positive" as a "new case" of COVID-19!
Clearly, the CDC would never have gotten away with such massive abuse of PCR had Dr. Mullis not died in August 2019.
Polymerase is an enzyme capable of replicating swab material from a test subject, effectively doubling it with each cycle (one cycle duplicates the material; 2^1 = 2; two cycles produces 4 copies, 2^2 = 4; three cycles makes 8 copies, 2^3 = 8; and so on, each new cycle doubling the material). Mullis recommended 36 replications (2^36 copies which is greater than 68 billion copies). Higher replications will produce many false "positives" (eg, 40 = 2^40 makes more than 1 trillion copies; 45 = 2^45 makes more than 35 trillion copies). Sixty will guarantee 100% “positive,” a guaranteed “new case” (2^60 makes more than 1 quintillion copies). The more copies are made the meaningful the resultant material becomes.
Despite this, the CDC recommended 45(!) cycles, a figure so high it would guarantee many false positives. But a negative would be a sure-fire negative with so many replications failing to produce a single false positive!
The CDC should have been honest about PCR "testing" and advised those who were negative that they were COVID-19 free. For those who tested "positive," the CDC should have advised them to have the PCR result confirmed by a test that actually looked for evidence of an active virus (e.g., a blood serum test) since PCR simply look for a match to an inert viral strand.
But what did the CDC do?
What should the CDC have done? As described above, it should not have counted any PCR "positive" as a "new case" and it should have advised the subject to be retested using a test that was actually capable of detecting a live virus (PCR cannot distinguish between a live virus and an inert viral strand).
What did the CDC achieve by this deception:
COVID-19 Death Guideline
Rather than apply the standard influenza death guideline that had been used for many decades, CDC created a unique death guideline for COVID-19. What made the COVID-19 viral influenza so different from other viral influenzas that it required its own death guidelines? Answer: Nothing.
So why did CDC create a COVID-19 death guideline? Not only was this new guideline created to include non-COVID-19 deaths, the CDC offered a bonus to physicians and hospitals to classify deaths as being either directly or indirectly caused by COVID-19.
Why this deception? Clearly, it was to further ramp up public fear by dramatically overstating the actual number of deaths caused by COVID-19.
An example consistent with the CDC COVID-19 death guideline: If a motorcyclist were killed in a traffic accident, the deceased would be tested post-mortem using the PCR test. A highly likely "positive" result (thanks to over-replication) would allow the CDC to list the death as a COVID-19 death! A similar scenario was confirmed by a CDC spokeswoman during a TV press conference in mid-2020.
As expected, when the standard influenza death guideline is applied to COVID-19 "deaths," the death figure drops by 94% to a total that is typical for a seasonal viral influenza! The 94% deaths certainly occurred, but they were not caused by COVID-19! This is evident by analyzing the 2020 CDC death tables.
Because CDC miscategorized so many heart attacks, cancers, other influenzas ("A" and "B"), et al, as "COVID-19" deaths, the expected death toll for other serious health conditions were notably lower than expected during 2020! Was COVID-19 a cure for those other causes of death? Of course not. CDC’s contrived COVID-19 death guideline manipulated deaths to suit the CDC’s objective.
When standard influenza death guidelines are applied to the grossly exaggerated COVID-19 death toll and deaths are properly recategorized, the adjusted death tolls all fall within the normal expectation!
The combination of these two CDC deceits creates a false impression among most people that the COVID-19 virus is infecting vast numbers of people and unprecedented deaths are occurring. This artificial state of fear was used to justify policies that wrecked the lives of far more people than did the COVID-19 influenza itself. The fear and consequent loss of jobs and income did serious harm to local, state, and national economies. Dramatic price increases and shortages of many goods and materials are now widespread.
All to create a national state of fear. CDC's deliberate over-estimation of "new cases" plus CDC's gross exaggeration of COVID-19 death tolls created mass fear over what the true death toll reveals as a viral influenza indistinguishable from a typical seasonal influenza. The true chance of not becoming infected and dying from COVID-19 is greater than 99.98% for everyone under the age of 75! Younger ages have the highest survival rates, with rates that are indistinguishable from 100% for those under age 25.
Yet mass fear, unjustified by the facts, was used to stampeded the US (and world) population to be “saved” by experimental “vaccines” for which no animal or long term human testing was performed and that lack FDA Approval.
The “vaccine” that isn't a vaccine
The worst consequences of the CDC's deceit is that people not only willingly, but eagerly allowed themselves to be given shots of a material never before injected into humans! A material that required CDC to alter the definition of a "vaccine" in order to mischaracterize these shots as a "vaccine." This experimental "vaccine" is not FDA Approved; instead it was "Authorized for emergency use." Purely on the basis of fear (and, of course, massive profits for the pharmaceutical industry). The COVID-19 “vaccines” implant alien mRNA "spike proteins" that can never be removed, regardless of any long- or short-term consequences which, because testing was skipped, are completely unknown!
Even at this writing, the CDC's webpage (Understanding mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines) claims: "COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines Will Be Rigorously Evaluated for Safety"! The operative phrase is "Will Be"!
Excuse me for being logical, but isn’t the time for safety studies before a substance is offered to the public? After half the country has been stampeded, incentivized, brow-beaten, fear-mongered, and virtue-signaled into taking these experimental shots that implant alien spike proteins throughout their body, what if it is subsequently discovered that these spike proteins are deadly to our natural immune system! Even worse, these spike proteins are naturally replicated in response to any future viral attack (a common cold, for example). Not only can’t they be removed, they spread! At least one study has already found the spike proteins embedded in vital organs. The audacity of the CDC to claim on that same webpage:
What about the serious consequences of using an experimental treatment (mislabeled a "vaccine" to entice people to take the shots) for which:
Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), Ivermectin, Zinc, Vitamin D3, and a number of other safe, inexpensive, long-used prescription and over-the-counter treatments are available that have been found to be highly effective against the COVID-19 virus, particularly if taken early in the disease. Even beyond early-stage infections, several of these treatments are also effective for many more advanced cases. The use of HCQ by hospitals in the late stages of disease when such treatments were too little, too late, and no longer effective was used to make absurd contentions that HCQ was "ineffective."
Yet the CDC has the audacity to claim:
Just how does the CDC know the alien spike protein is "harmless"?
They don't, because they've done none of the testing normally required to make that determination!
Finally, a staggering question the CDC dares not address: Why were "oxygen intubation machines" claimed to be so urgently needed to deliver oxygen directly into the lungs of end-stage patients when oxygen is not a cure for COVID-19 and can only have the effect of extending life for a short time?
That question becomes even more horrifying considering the CDC is mum about ultraviolet (UV) light's potential to cure even advanced cases of the disease:
The widespread unjustifiable pubic fear created by CDC's deceitful overstatement of "new cases" (thanks to their deliberate inappropriate use of PCR with high replication rates) coupled with CDC's exaggerated COVID-19 death toll based on a contrived COVID-19 death guideline, is reinforced by absurd mask mandates that cannot possibly stop a virus whose size is measured in nanometers (billionths of a meter) but create a constant visible reminder to a fearful public. Trying to stop the virus with a mask is like trying to stop a fly with a chain link fence.
To compound their deceit, the CDC lies about the experimental "vaccine" being used inappropriately for all ages when the only meaningful risk to life is to those age 75 and older. In the State of Florida, there have been only seven COVID-19 deaths (based on CDC's death guidelines) of a child under the age of 16. Based on the population of Florida children under the age of 16, the chances of a child under the age of 16 dying from COVID-19 is 0.00018% (or 0.0000018 of those under 16 in Florida; less than 2 per million!). As noted earlier, those under the age of 75 have a combined 99.98% chance of surviving the COVID-19 pandemic.
Are the minuscule chances of most age groups dying from this virus really a serious basis for being subjected to an experimental "vaccine" for which critical safety and long-term effects testing have not been performed?
The CDC cannot defend any of its deceitful actions. The clear deceit motivating CDC's upper management is sufficient to have them arrested for crimes against humanity.
Given this record of deceit, how can anyone trust any statement from the CDC?
Has there ever been a more striking example of “official deceit” than CDC’s despicable performance during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Biography - Bob Webster
Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
