Epidemiologist Says Lockdown Is The Wrong Policy!
By Neenah Payne
When people wear COVID-19 masks, they think they are protecting themselves and others. However, the masks have multiple meanings – some of which mask wearers might not want to endorse! That is especially true since Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease at the National Institutes of Health, said COVID-19 is just a normal seasonal flu.
Do You Accept the COVID-19 Fear-Based “Religion”? shows that British author David Icke explained in his video interview on April 7 that the COVID-19 virus may not even exist. Investigative reporter Jon Rappoport explains how the world was tricked into believing COVID-19 is a killer flu when the other “pandemics” (SARS, H1N1, Bird Flu, MERS, Ebola, West Nile, etc.) failed. So, whom do masks benefit?
The masks serve the following purposes:
- Measure of Acceptance of COVID-19 Fear: The number of people wearing masks allows those in power to assess how much of the population has accepted the COVID-19 fear-driven policy. No one was wearing masks in January. Now, about 80% of the population wears masks. This allows authorities to gauge how long it takes for a concept to saturate the population. Taking photos of crowds can further establish acceptance by demographics: age, race, gender, etc. In other words – how many people believe the fear-driven policy, who, and where they are. Masks also indicate how many people rely exclusively on the corporate media for information – and thus can be controlled by that narrative. Masks identify the people who are not thinking independently.
- Virtue Signaling: David Icke has mentioned the concept of “virtue signaling”. When people wear the COVID-19 mask, they are signaling family, friends, neighbors, and everyone they meet that they are “good” people. They are “socially responsible”, doing the right thing, “caring”, looking out or the community, protecting others, etc. They do what they are told, they are compliant. People may also wear masks out of fear not just of the virus, but of being called out, criticized, or even reported for not “self-quarantining” sufficiently.
- Fun: Masks are associated with fun, with masked balls. Masks remind us of times when we played “Hide and Seek”. It’s similar to getting dressed up for Halloween. It’s part of play and a game. It also subtly suggests hiding or something illegal, naughty – being bandits.
China: Role Model For The “New Normal”
However, masks also serve the more sinister purpose of getting people to identify subconsciously with China now. Many Chinese have had to wear masks for years to protect themselves from the high levels of air pollution throughout the nation. Totalitarian China is now being promoted as the new role model.
“Beijing’s Air Pollution” shows the dramatic difference in air quality in just one day – from January 31 to February 1, 2015. It says that in 2015, the Chinese government issued two red alerts on air quality. Schools were closed and vehicles were restricted. It says that breathing the air in Beijing is equivalent to smoking 40 cigarettes a day! That can lead to severe heart and lung diseases and respiratory effects. The Chinese are used to going into lockdown. For the first time, Americans are too.
In PART I: HOW IT STARTED, Jon Rappoport says that it is only because China took the unprecedented step to lock down 50 million people in three cities overnight that the COVID-19 scare worked when all the flus had failed for years. The Secretary General of the UN praised China and said it had shown the world the model to follow to combat the “COVID virus” and avoid the death of millions of people.
The Center of Disease Control and World Health Organization also praised China’s lockdown. They had been trying to plant the idea of a false pandemic for years – and failing one after another. Now, they had the key to force the world into lockdowns! The COVID-19 fear-based “religion” was born – ignoring science and data! NY Governor Cuomo said on April 13 that the facts do not merit the level of anxiety!
- China’s technocratic top-down control is being presented as the model of the “new normal” as seen in The China Model: Political Meritocracy and the Limits of Democracy. The world copied China’s unprecedented lockdown. Now, although America does not have pollution, many Americans wear masks to protect themselves from a flu that even the NIH says is a mild flu.
- Social Credit Score: Rappoport says that as in China, everyone in the world will have a “Social Credit Score” which is an index of your behavior and is tied to the Universal Guaranteed Income. If you park in the wrong place, if you cross against a red light, if you talk back to your boss, if you miss a doctor’s appointment, or a million other things, your “Social Credit Score” will be re-evaluated. Your index may drop to a degree and that will affect your monthly check.
- Wall-to-Wall Surveillance: Surveillance will be installed everywhere. Everyone will be identified, tracked, profiled in multiple ways to control behavior – as in China now.
The masks are preparing us psychologically now to accept a totalitarian state like the one in China..
Fauci’s Folly Threatens Schools
Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease at the National Institutes of Health, is a member of the White House Corona Task Force. In the video “Fauci Says Schools May Open In Fall,” he says that whether the schools reopen in the fall depends on the “flattening of cases”. That means that millions of students have to miss graduation this year — and schools may not open even in the fall! This is in spite of the fact that Dr. Fauci published an article The New England Journal of Medicine saying that COVID-19 is just a mild seasonal flu! What on EARTH is going on?!
As figures such as Dr. Anthony Fauci recommend months of lockdowns that threaten to exterminate much of our economy, yet another expert has weighed in essentially saying that this course offers all risk and no reward. In fact, epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski stated that lifting the lockdowns would cause the Wuhan virus to be “exterminated” in weeks.
Dr. Wittkowski, the former longtime head of the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design at the Rockefeller University in New York City, made his comments in an interview with The Press & The Public Project (PPP) at the start of the month. Wittkowski maintained “that the coronavirus could be ‘exterminated’ if we permitted most people to lead normal lives and sheltered the most vulnerable parts of society until the danger had passed,” reports the College Fix.
“With all respiratory diseases, the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity,” Wittkowski told the PPP. “About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected, or they had very, very mild symptoms, especially if they are children.”
This is not conjecture. For example, consider that among 60 blood donors in one northern Italian town, 40 tested positive for Wuhan virus antibodies — meaning, they’d contracted the disease but had no symptoms and are now immune. Moreover, one study holds that half of Britain was already infected with the virus in late March already.
“So, it’s very important to keep the schools open and kids mingling to spread the virus to get herd immunity as fast as possible…It must be emphasized that our whole policy of “locking down” the nation — which threatens to collapse our economy and, ultimately perhaps, our civilization — was based on these flawed models.
Lockdown Vs. Herd Immunity
In “Perspectives on the Pandemic | Professor Knut Wittkowski | Episode 2,” epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski explains that we are experiencing horrific consequences now of bad policy decisions. Social distancing has already cost US taxpayers two trillion dollars! Lockdown has severe consequences for social life and depression will surge. New York City looks like a ghost town now. Closing the schools was one of the most destructive actions the government has done. Since people can get immunity from a flu naturally, a vaccine is not necessary. Yet, Bill Gates is saying that lockdown must continue until he can force everyone to take an untested vaccine – one from which he will profit massively and which is a violation of the Nuremberg Code.
Dr. Wittkowski received his PhD in computer science from the University of Stuttgart and his ScD in Medical Biometry from the Eberhard-Karls-University Tuüingen, both in Germany. He worked for 15 years at the university with Klaus Dietz, one of the world’s leading epidemiologists. Dr. Wittkowski was the head of the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design at the Rockefeller University in New York City for 20 years. He is now CEO of ASDERA LLC, a company discovering novel treatments for complex diseases from data of genome-wide association studies.
The best way to solve the COVID-19 crisis is with “herd immunity” – not with a lockdown or vaccines. Professor Wittkowski says it’s very important to keep the schools open so kids mingle and get herd immunity as fast as possible. Nursing homes should be closed for about four weeks. He says any respiratory disease goes for two weeks, peaks, goes for two weeks — and then is gone! “Social distancing” to “flatten the curve” prolongs the crisis.
Further, the reported “second wave” will be a direct consequence of “flattening the curve” with social distancing – and will be used to justify another lockdown. He says COVID-19 was nothing to be scared of. It was a flu like every other flu. If the schools and business had remained open, we would have herd immunity now and there could not be a second wave in the fall. However, social distancing is almost guaranteed to CREATE a second wave in the autumn. Herd immunity typically lasts for a couple of years.
Since viruses cannot easily spread outdoors in the spring, one of the best forms of containment is for people to go outdoors. “Social distancing” — staying indoors — keeps the VIRUS healthy! Wittkowski says the Chinese had an advantage because they didn’t know what they were dealing with initially. So, before they started the lockdown, there was enough time for the virus to reach herd immunity!
Wittkowski explained that since he is not paid by the government, he can do science! He says that had the government not intervened, the epidemic would have been over. He said only 2% of all symptomatic cases would have died – a high of 10,000 people – when about 35,000 people die of the flu in the US every year. He says that testing for respiratory disease is neither necessary nor effective!
Wittkowski says that Americans are more docile than they should be. If people don’t stand up for their constitutional rights now, they will lose those freedoms forever. He says that Americans should now be resisting and should hold politicians responsible for their misguided policies that have shut the schools, restaurants, other businesses, and cost Americans so much in so many ways – all for nothing.
Growing Threats to Our Rights and Freedoms Now
We each have a major choice to make now which will dramatically affect not only our own lives, but the lives of all future generations. This is a pivotal moment in history. Once our constitutional freedoms are lost, there will be no turning back.
In America Under COG: NORTHCOM X Military Rule Exposed! Continuity of Government, the Dark Journalist says that the power grab on the Constitutional level, the state level, and the local level is beyond anything we’ve ever seen.
He discusses the Northcom Continuity of Government and reports that the media has been saying that if Trump and Pence get the coronavirus, Canadian-born 4-star General Terrence O’Shaughnessy, Commander of NORAD and USNORTHCOM (shown below), will become President. That violates the Constitutional chain of command. It means COVID-19 would be used to justify a military coup.
Airing on March 22, the show emphasized that the possibility of this military take-over is now imminent. The Dark Journalist says the Deep State is attempting to use COVID-19 as a pretext to seize our rights under “Continuity of Government”. The 1964 movie Seven Days in May dealt with a similar threat of a military take-over and was a film that JFK helped get made.
What’s As Stake For Americans Now? show that US Attorney General William Barr wants to suspend certain Constitutional rights during the coronavirus emergency. The Department of Justice wants to be able to arrest people and hold them indefinitely without trial. In terms of the virus, that makes no sense since an asymptomatic person can spread the virus for only 14 days and a sick person needs to be at home or in a hospital.
It may be impossible to restore the Constitution after the virus disappears. In the audio Individual Liberty in a Post-Pandemic World, James Corbett says this is THE most significant event of our lifetimes – not because of the virus, but because of the unprecedented power grab.
See Corbett’s article THIS Is What World War III Looks Like.
Bill Gates’ Plans For You!
In October of 2012, this website ran a story about Bill Gates’ eugenicist tendencies, citing video clips of him publicly talking about the need to bring more vaccinations to the world and how this would make it possible to reduce population growth. We’ve since run many stories on Gates’ pursuits to have an impact on the world, including discussing the idea that a global pandemic would present the perfect opportunity to rollout mandatory vaccines…. If you’re at all less than interested in being required to have a vaccine in order to regain your personal freedom, now would be a good time to speak up about it.
Bill Gates is not a doctor. He is not a healthcare professional. He is not a policy advisor appointed by any government. He is not an elected official. He a high school graduate and the founder of a software company who fancies himself a philanthropist as he collaborates with drug companies to force vaccines on people in violation of the Nuremberg Code. What is the ultimate purpose?
A Killer Enterprise: How One of Big Pharma’s Most Corrupt Companies Plans to Corner the Covid-19 Cure Market shows that there is real reason to be concerned about a mandatory vaccine.
In his famous TED Talk, Gates states his goal of using vaccines to “reduce the world population”. Now, Gates wants to FORCE everyone to take the COVID-19 vaccine—from which he and the drug companies he is associated with will profit massively.
This is a good time to remember that in 2009, when the World Health Organization falsely claimed SARS a “pandemic”, President Obama bought $18 million worth of vaccines. It was later discovered that some WHO officials were on the take from the drug companies. Unfortunately, that information is not online.
Austrian medical journalist Jane Burgermeister blew the whistle when it was discovered that Baxter DELIBERATELY released a vaccine that would have killed millions, if not billions, of people – adding to the hysteria. Burgermeister is suing WHO and the UN for the attempt to commit mass murder.
Kennedy shows that Bill Gates is the manipulator behind the scenes of the Center For Disease Control, the World Health Organization, NIH, the White House COVID-19 Task Force as well as the Event 201 exercise held just weeks before the COVID-19 “pandemic” in Wuhan, China. With his enormous conflicts of interests, Bill Gates should not be the one deciding the world’s fate.
WHO Says Police Must Now Enter Homes!!
In the article Do You Trust World Health Authorities, Dr. Mark Sircus links to an April 6 video by Tucker Carlson called “Tucker: How long will the lockdowns last?” which shows that that Dr. Michael Ryan of the World Health Organization now says that because of lockdowns, the virus is in people’s homes! The solution WHO proposes is for police to enter people’s HOMES and REMOVE FAMILY MEMBERS.
Of course, in America, this is a violation of the Fourth Amendment! The US Founding Fathers added the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution because they were tired of the British troops entering their homes at will. The fought a revolution to secure that protection for us.
The video shows that the mayor of Los Angeles expects the current lockdown to last until June and for there to be two more lockdowns after that! Carlson says that the corporate media is not covering this shocking news. While China went back to work in April, the US expects to be locked down for two months and then to experience to more lockdowns. Why is that? If China is the model in the “new normal”, why isn’t the US going back to work now?
As we previously warned, this pandemic response will bankrupt and kill more people from suicide than the virus will. When you sacrifice people’s livelihoods, you create a desperate situation for many who will see no 0ther way out. We are about to have a mental health crisis during an economic depression that will be tough to live through.
The virus is no longer the problem. The government’s reaction has been the problem and even some politicians have figured it out. Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs revealed in a weekly update that our solution to this pandemic has not been a good one. “Thus far, our reaction to COVID-19 has been to sacrifice the global economy,” said Jacobs. “The truth is: a sick economy produces sick people.
Ron Paul: Resistance Is Building Now
Ron Paul is a medical doctor and a former US Congressman from Texas who served for 23 years. He is a leading Libertarian and strong defender of the US Constitution and individual freedom. Dr. Paul ran for the presidency on the Republican ticket in 2012. He now co-hosts the Ron Paul Liberty Report.
Americans have suffered under the boot of tyranny long enough. Resistance to the house arrest orders and pushback against the bans from making a living are finally surfacing in large numbers. Have people finally realized they are not slaves to be controlled by a few power-hungry politicians?
Across the country, from political leaders to small business owners, to parents who just want to take their children to the park, resistance is growing to the authoritarians who have effectively suspended the Constitution and placed most of the country under house arrest.
Lawsuits are also challenging unlawful “stay at home” orders. What if all the hysteria-driven orders have actually made the virus outbreak even worse? More scientists are coming forward to argue for the “Sweden model” of moderation rather than lockdown.
In Dr. Ron Paul’s latest Liberty Report, he says this frustration is positive. Sweden kept the society open to foster the herd immunity that Dr. Wittkowski also endorses.
The article adds:
As Americans begin to lose patience with their enslavement and the tyranny of almost every governor in this country, the government should see themselves as on borrowed time. “Fauci is losing credibility,” says Dr. Paul. Give the people back their natural right to freedom of speech, peaceful assembly, and the ability to make a living. Dr. Paul says there’s a group of people in Idaho that are on the right side of human rights and the Constitution vocally standing up to the authoritarians who attempted to enslave the entire public.
It points out:
Paul and Daniel McAdams discussed the psychological impact of fear this has had on the general public. The fear has led to people accepting their chains, yet that’s beginning to change. If governors and the federal government do not want to go down in history in the same manner as other tyrants, they would do well to give people back their rights and to never attempt this type of enslavement again.
The Lion Sleeps No More!
A RANCHER who occupied a wildlife refuge in Oregon with an armed militia group says he will be holding an Easter gathering, despite the coronavirus lockdown. Ammon Bundy told CNN his planned event would attract hundreds of worshippers….”Our goal is to get enough people together and secure our rights… we are not trying to provoke, we want people to be able to worship,” Bundy told the network. The location has yet to be announced, but will be somewhere in Idaho, where Bundy currently resides.”
As the Easter weekend approaches, pastors across the US have announced they would be continuing with in-person church services, despite coronavirus deaths continuing to rise. Kentucky church leader Jack Roberts plans to hold Easter services, in spite of attempts by health department officials to close his Maryville Baptist Church. In Louisiana, pastor of Life Tabernacle Church Tony Spell said his congregation would “rather die” than miss church, and is ploughing ahead with his planned 1,000 person strong Easter Sunday service.
Around 75 protesters gathered outside of the Ohio Statehouse on Thursday to criticize the government’s restrictions during the coronavirus outbreak. Many wore Guy Fawkes masks over their faces, and at least one held a gun. Their signs criticized the governor’s stay-at-home order, closure of schools and shutdown of the economy: “My constitutional rights are essential,” “Ohio dies when government lies,” “Quarantine the sick not the Constitution,” “A free people in a pandemic are still a free people.”
A new protest was launched just days later and the numbers of protesters are growing:
Newark officials said “stay at home.” These protesters refused to obey. “People’s lives are on the line,” Arena said. “And the only way we can change that is by exercising our First Amendment rights, which we were doing. First Amendment rights and protecting public health are not in contradiction to each other … they’re inseparable.” Other groups involved in Wednesday’s protest included Action 21, Cosecha NJ, Green Party NJ, DIRE, Close the Camps NJ, Never Again Action, New Sanctuary Coalition, NJ5 Indivisible, North Jersey Democratic Socialists of America, Pax Christi NJ and Unitarian Universalist Faith Action… Anthony Díaz, a co-founding organizer of the Newark Water Coalition, said last week. “It doesn’t seem like a health issue, it seems like a military quarantine,” Díaz alleged….According to the organizers of last week’s drive-by protest, there are times when people have to do what’s right, even if it means defying a ban on “nonessential travel.”
Louisiana Pastor Holds Easter Services
Pastor Tony Spell of The Life Tabernacle Church in Louisiana defends the freedom to worship. Echoing President Franklin Roosevelt during the Great Depression, Pastor Spell assured his parishioners “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.”
The pastor who said his congregation would rather die than not go to church plans to hold an Easter service this weekend — with 1,000 people.
Tony Spell, of the Life Tabernacle Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, has refused to stop his services amid the coronavirus pandemic, despite the state’s public health ban on gatherings of more than 10 people.
He was even arrested and charged with six misdemeanor counts of violating Gov. John Bel Edward’s orders.
But despite the law and outcry, Spell plans to host an Easter Sunday service that’s expected to draw more than 1,000 people, according to the news outlet.
On Palm Sunday, when Louisiana had at least 13,000 cases of the virus, with 477 deaths, Spell again held services.
“They would rather come to church and worship like free people than live like prisoners in their homes,” Spell told reporters.
“The virus, we believe, is politically motivated,” Spell previously told WAFB. “We hold our religious rights dear and we are going to assemble no matter what someone says.”
He added: “True Christians do not mind dying, they fear living in fear. People that can prefer tyranny over freedom do not deserve freedom.”
Spell claims if Christians who attended church during the coronavirus outbreak were to die, they would die “like free people fighting for their convictions.”
Last week, when Spell was asked by CBS why he broke the governor’s orders, he said: “Because the Lord told us to.”
A spokesperson for Spell said they’re planning to sue Edwards for a violation of the First Amendment and noted 16 states have religious exemptions to stay-at-home orders.
“We believe the governor is wrong,” Long told Reuters. “And we look forward to proving our case in court.”
Chief Roger Corcoran, of the Central Police Department…said police don’t plan to interfere with Spell’s service this Sunday, and are instead planning to document it and provide evidence of it to the district attorney’s office.
JBS: Freedom Is The Cure!
The John Birch Society site says:
Do we live in America or a Communist dictatorship? When is it ok for governments to force the closure of businesses? Or to forcibly close places of worship? When will this end and what will happen when the virus flares up again this fall? The over-the-top response from all levels of government to the COVID-19 coronavirus has betrayed the very foundations of our Republic. Rights have been trampled.
It points out:
During the lockdown of America, schools, businesses, churches, and individuals are being bullied by government based on an unwarranted emergency. Will we get those rights back? That depends on you! Your Rights Are Not Negotiable!
Americans Must Respond! Given the absolute hype by the media and government at every level, most Americans are submitting to these draconian orders. After all, Americans are ruled by laws, so we willingly want to comply. But when the government tramples our rights, their orders must be met with swift and Constitutional pushback from the proper authorities…..Terrorists couldn’t do any better to tank the U.S. economy, take away our freedoms, and cause mass hysteria among the American people. It’s time to stop the tyranny and clear the way for American healthcare to treat the virus!

Freedom Items: “End Lockdown Now!”
Every American has a life-defining choice to make on which of these two policies to support now:
- Continued Lockdown: This is the policy proposed by Bill Gates who says that the nation must be in lockdown until everyone gets vaccinated by the vaccines from which he and his drug company affiliates will make millions of dollars. This is in violation of the Nuremberg Agreement.
Lockdown will further destroy the economy and schools. It is based on the theory that quarantining the whole nation is necessary to “flatten the curve”. Fauci supports this policy despite of the fact that What’s At Stake For Americans Now? shows that Fauci said in an article that COVID-19 is no more threatening than a seasonal flu. It shows that Dr. Vladimir Zelenko has used Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate, Zinc, and Z-Pak to treat 699 coronavirus patients in New York City with a 100% success rate. No patients died. This approach costs about $20.
This model requires surrender of our constitutional freedoms including the First Amendment right of assembly, the Fourth Amendment protection against police entering our homes and seizing family members, the Fifth Amendment and Sixth Amendment protections against arrest without charges and unlimited detention without counsel or trial as recently proposed by the US Attorney General William Barr. This approach may involve the unconstitutional replacement of Trump as president by Canadian-born General Terrence O’Shaughnessy, Commander of NORAD and USNORTHCO if Trump and Pence get the virus. People who wear masks are indicating that they support this policy which is based on fear of the virus.
- Immediate Return To Normal: In Stand Up For Your Rights, epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski says locking down the nation to “flatten the curve” prolongs the virus. He says what is needed is “herd immunity”. When the population is exposed to the virus, everyone develops immunity to it. The only people who need protection are those in nursing homes. This policy allows the end of the lockdown, re-opening schools, restoration of the economy, and the protection of our constitutional rights. The threat is not the virus – but the lockdown which undermines our health, economy, schools, and freedoms.
