Dr. Kary B. Mullis, the inventor of the RT-PCR for which he was bestowed the 1993 Nobel Prize for Chemistry: “I’m a scientist. I’m not a lifeguard. That’s a very important line in the sand. Somebody who goes around claiming they are ‘saving lives,’ is a very dangerous animal, and you should run in the opposite direction when you encounter them. Their weapon is ‘FEAR’, and their favorite word is ‘COULD’. They entrap you with a form of bio-debt, creating simulations of every imaginable thing that ‘could happen’, yet hasn’t.” . . . Hmmmm . . . do you see? . . Mga kapatid, these “could happen scenarios” are everywhere, its round the clock – every minute, every hour, 24/7, it’s drowning us. Its a PSYOP, its TOTAL DECEPTION!!! These ‘dangerous animals’ are all over us now!!!
COVID is the PANDEMIC of NON-SEQUITUR
2021-March-23 . . . By: ncdm
The PCR’s 1993 Nobel Prize was a great seal of legitimacy that at the onset of Covid-19, it was immediately adopted by all governments of the world as the “gold standard” to detect and diagnose Sars-Cov-2 virus and Covid-19 infection. But after a while, ‘false positives’ abounded. In 2020-August, Sweden’s Public Health Agency found thousands of false positive Covid test results from Chinese-made PCR kits. In the same month, the New York Times said the PCR tests are ‘90% false positives’, and the Swiss Policy Research said it is ‘97% unreliable’. The esteemed Nature.com said “no viable virus found in PCR positive cases.” But the most damning denial came from the eminent Dr. Michael Yeadon, former Vice President and Chief Scientist of Pfizer (now retired), said “PCR could be 100% false.” . . . How could that be? . . What happened to PCR’s Nobel Prize?
Dr. Kary B. Mullis:– “Quantitative PCR is an oxymoron. PCR is intended to identify substances qualitatively, but by its very nature is unsuited for estimating numbers. Although there is a common misimpression that the viral-load tests actually count the number of viruses in the blood, these tests cannot detect free, infectious viruses at all; they can only detect proteins that are believed, in some cases wrongly, to be unique to HIV. . . The tests can detect genetic sequences of viruses, but not viruses themselves.” – -[.the background of this statement: Dr. Anthony Fauci, the foremost scientist in the HIV-AIDS research, was prodding hard, to the point of begging, Dr. Mullis to use his PCR invention to “underpin” or legitimize his claims about HIV – for which Dr. Mullis opposed adamantly, to the point of calling Fauci an “asshole”.]:
It’s clear, from the inventor himself, PCR does not detect viruses, that by its very nature, it has no way of identifying the source of the viral material, more so, it can’t even identify whether that source is dead or alive.
And even the PCR manufacturers are explicit in indicating that their product must not be used for diagnosis -[.DIAGNOSIS – analysis of the cause or nature of a disease from its signs and symptons]:, they know its limitations that indeed PCR does not detect viruses, only the viral particles. The PCR is simply not fit for that purpose.. . . In this video (2011-September), Dr. Mullis and four other doctors explain why the PCR is not meant for diagnostics.
So what do we mean when we say somebody has ‘tested positive’ for Covid-19? . . . Who knows, how come we’ve become so ILLITERATE?. . . . The people who have taken all your freedoms away for a year now, they’re social engineers, politicians, globalist thought leaders, bankers, WHO fanatics, and the like. Their formidable army is the MAINSTREAM MEDIA, the perfect propaganda machine who keep pounding us this very toxic barrage of round the clock FEARMONGERING and DISINFORMATION that has literally poisoned us, made us paralysed and unable to think properly, left us ILLITERATE, and turned us into brain-dead ZOMBIES.
There’s no flaw in the PCR, but the manner it is being used is FLAWED, i. e. it should not be for the diagnosis of SarsCov, it’s not meant for that. Using the PCR in diagnosis is like using the hammer to drive the screw – it will surely fail.. . . The flyswatter is the gold standard to kill the fly and not the gun. The spoon is the gold standard to sip the soup and not the chopsticks. The gun will fail horribly to kill the fly, but it’s the gold standard in killing stupid people who claim to be scientists. The chopsticks will fail horribly to sip the soup, but it’s the gold standard in picking dimsum and kimchi and Teriyaki, spring rolls, pancit, Peking duck, sweet-sour Lapulapu, etc….
Similar to the Litmus Test, the PCR is just a “YES or NO” thing, and nothing more than that, PERIOD. . . Let’s say Vergeire litmus tested the sample from Pasig River and found that it’s acidic. Then she said it must be because Pedro urinated on the river, that caused the acidity. Then thousands of dead fish floated on the river, and she concluded “see, Pedro’s urine is so toxic because he eats cyanide balls like popcorn and drink chlorox like milktea.” Then later she’ll find that it’s Jose who urinated and not Pedro, and then blame the “false positive” to the humble litmus test. The litmus has nothing to do with the flawed analysis. In the same way, the PCR can’t be blamed for the “false positive cases” but its users who make interpretations after the PCR has finished its job.
MORE FACTS TO GUIDE US:
1. Influenza Like Illnesses (ILI): “Over 200 viruses cause influenza and ILI, producing the same symptoms (fever, headache, aches, pains, cough, and runny noses). Without laboratory tests, doctors cannot distinguish between them as both last for days and rarely lead to death or serious illness.” – :[.2014-March, Cochrane Library] Latest addition to the list is Sars-Cov-2. Right now everyone with ILI is considered infected with Sarscov or Covid-19 – it’s the only disease in town for a year now, no other. All these other diseases, the flu, common cold, pneumonia, tuberculosis, they all have been consigned to the museum, they all have gone the path of the dinosaur. What’s happening today, all coughing and fever are precisely “cases” of Covid, that’s automatic, . . . that’s absolutely NON SEQUITUR.
2. The “SWAB cocktail”: the swab for Covid PCR is done on the throat and on the inside of the nose, these are among the dirtiest parts of the human body. These are not the exclusive abode of Sarscov, it doesn’t exist there like Robinson Crusoe. The nose and throat are a total community of diverse organisms, it’s a whole county or a whole barangay of hundreds or thousands of different organisms. The PCR test for Covid indeed begins with a very impure material. But our health authorities cunningly are imposing to us that the “swab” contains only Sarscov and nothing else, and so all these testing are exclusively only for Sarscov, . . . that’s absolutely NON SEQUITUR.
3. We All Share COMMON Genes: reflect again, let’s revisit our high school Biology, the Charles Darwin’s ‘Theory of Evolution’ – all living things on earth evolved from a common ancestor, we’re all made of the same stuff, we all share common genes.
In a research published by the Spanish medical journal DSALUD Discovery it found:
“The genetic sequences used in PCRs to detect suspected SARS-CoV-2 and to diagnose cases of illness and death attributed to Covid-19 are present in dozens of sequences of the human genome itself and in those of about a hundred microbes. And that includes the initiators or primers, the most extensive fragments taken at random from their supposed “genome” and even the so-called “target genes” allegedly speciﬁc to the “new coronavirus”. The test is worthless and all “positive” results obtained so far should be scientiﬁcally invalidated and communicated to those aﬀected; and if they are deceased, to their relatives. Stephen Bustin, one of the world’s leading experts on PCR, in fact says that under certain conditions anyone can test positive!
xeniaWe have been warning you since March: you cannot have speciﬁc tests for a virus without knowing the components of the virus you are trying to detect. And the components cannot be known without having previously isolated/puriﬁed that virus. Since then we continue to accumulate evidence that no one has isolated SARS-CoV-2 and, more importantly, that it can never be isolated for the reasons we explained last month (read the report “Can you prove that there are pathogenic viruses?” on our website -www.dsalud.com-). And in the present report we are going to oﬀer new data that show that RT-PCR does not detect the so called SARS-CoV-2 as it is known, but fragments of human RNA and those of numerous microbes. . . . read more . .“
The PCR is “calibrated” or preset to look for a DNA fragment that they say is UNIQUE or exclusive to Sarscov. But the above study says that particular DNA fragment is present in a hundred other different microbes, including dozens in the human genes. So a positive test result may not be because of the Sarscov for there are a myriad of other suspects, including the person himself. To impulsively equate positivity to Sarscov is absolutely NON SEQUITUR.
On 2020-December-1, the (U.S.) CDC 2019-nCoV RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel stated (under subtitle “LIMITATIONS” on page 39):
*Detection of viral RNA may not indicate the presence of infectious virus or that 2019-nCoV is the causative agent for clinical symptoms; . .
*The performance of this test has not been established for monitoring treatment of 2019-nCoV infection; . .
*This test cannot rule out diseases caused by other bacterial or viral pathogens.
YES, the CDC has finally admitted that the PCR test is FLAWED as regards diagnosing SarsCov-2.
This PLANDEMIC, and SCAMDEMIC has brought us deep into this rabbit hole. Worldwide thousands upon thousands of businesses closed, tens of millions of jobs lost, many resulting to suicides, governments are deep in debts, humanity wallows in hysteria, hunger, hopelessness and despair, indeed the costs are incalculable. . . How did we get here?
HOW ARE THEY FOOLING US???
INTRODUCING: the REVOLUTIONARY DU31 Bread Toaster – the 3-in-1 bread toaster that not only toasts bread, but also makes your espresso and fries your bacon and egg. . . . BUT OF COURSE IT’S NOT TRUE, it’s a lie, it doesn’t exist. There has never been a 3-in-1 bread toaster. All toasters only toasts bread and nothing more, PERIOD. It doesn’t make coffee nor fry the bacon. This 3-in-1 toaster is but a wild imagination, a fantasy, a fairy tale.
But some fantasies do come true, so it seems. . . . WELCOME THE 2020 PCR, THE REVOLUTIONARY 3-in-1 PCR for Covid-19, not only it detects viral RNA, but also definitely identifies SarsCov as the source, and also tells you that you are sicked with Covid, regardless if you are asymptomatic or not. . . . BUT OF COURSE IT’S NOT TRUE, its a lie. There has never been a 3-in-1 PCR. The PCR only detects DNA fragments, it does nothing more than that, it completely stops there, PERIOD. It doesn’t detect or identify any virus, and doesn’t tell that you are sicked. This 3-in-1 PCR is a myth, a science fiction, a fantasy, a fairy tale. . . . . OKEY, so to unclatter us from this convolution, let’s get it straight from the horse’s mouth – Dr. Mullis:
Dr. KARY B. MULLIS on MISUSE of PCR – 2020-Sep-22, YouTube 3 mins. – he explicitly stated that the PCR can’t be misused, but it’s the the result that is misinterpreted; ..[0.35]: “it can find almost anything from anybody”; ..[0.58]: “you can’t misuse PCR, the real misuse of it is to claim that the result is meaningful”; .. [3.11]: “PCR is SEPARATE from the interpretation of the result . . . doesn’t tell you that you are sicked, doesn’t tell you that the thing you ended up with really gonna hurt you.”. . . BE ENLIGHTENED, WATCH THIS CAREFULLY.
Dr. Mullis the inventor is categorical that the PCR is not a 3-in-1 thing, but it’s definitely ONLY 1, i.e. it does only ONE thing, i.e. it only amplifies the tiny tiny tiny DNA fragments or viral particles to be large enough for study (otherwise it’s so tiny and can’t be studied), it “makes invisible things visible”. Dr. Mullis was explicit that there can be no misuse of the PCR because it does its job excellently and perfectly. What concerned, and actually appalled Mullis is the interpretation of the PCR result. He was adamant that “the PCR is SEPARATE from the interpretation of the result”. Whatever the interpretation given to the result, the PCR has nothing to do with it, it’s not its concern, for the PCR it’s a BIG NON SEQUITUR.
In the COVID narrative, the science part is only up to the point where the RNA is detected. After that, all PSEUDOs come in – the interpretations, assumptions, opinions, speculations, projections, they inject everything imaginable, hyping up the FEAR to the nth degree, it’s round the clock FEAR, FEAR, FEAR… . . . THEY ARE NAZIS!!!
They see to it that you cower in FEAR every minute, every hour, 24/7. There’s no let up in FEARMONGERING, they are relentless at tormenting you to the vaccine. . . “malaki ang TONGPAT$ nila sa bakuna,” that’s why. . . They won’t let you know but thousands have already died from that ‘EXPERIMENTAL’ Covid vaccine..
To Duterte, Duque, Vergeire, et al, stop scheming Juan Dela Cruz. You must answer this: “Does a positive PCR test exactly identify Sars-Cov-2 virus as the SOURCE of the ‘detected’ RNA?”
The Covid narrative is by far the damnest travesty of science, the greatest hoax perpetuated against the unsuspecting public, and the greatest crime against humanity. Governments of the world used the PCR, a true science-based procedure, to beautifully camouflage their PSEUDO science and their infernal scheme.. . . . THEIR CORRUPTION IS COLOSSAL.
The PCR does not interpret the result that it yields. Whether it be positive or negative, the PCR gives no meaning to it, it’s just a “YES or NO” thing, PERIOD. The PCR has no involvement in the interpretation of the result, it is the USERS who interpret the result, and in the process are prone to commit mistakes, and more often than not really do commit mistakes. Whatever mistakes that occur, the blame is not on the PCR but on those who did the interpretation. It is clear, the PCR only deals with the DNA fragment that it is tasked to detect, whether it will be succesful or not, the PCR gives no meaning to it. It doesn’t tell if there is virus in there, it’s not its concern. Even the PCR manufacturers are explicit that their product “. . MUST NOT BE USED IN DIAGNOSIS” because it doesn’t detect the virus at all, PERIOD. The link between the PCR and the virus is NON SEQUITUR.
Indeed mistakes in the interpretation of the PCR result has resulted in disasters. Here are actual stories we can draw lessons from:
2020, PORTUGAL – 2020-Nov-18, a Portuguese Appeals Court has ruled “that PCR tests are unreliable and that it is unlawful to quarantine people based solely on a PCR test.” This case concerned the fact that four people had been quarantined by the Regional Health Authority (RHA). Of these, one had tested positive for COVID using a PCR test; the other three were deemed to have undergone a high risk of exposure. Consequently, the RHA decided that all four were infectious and a health hazard, which required that they go into isolation. The Court’s Summary reads: “Given how much scientific doubt exists – as voiced by experts, i.e., those who matter – about the reliability of the PCR tests, given the lack of information concerning the tests’ analytical parameters, and in the absence of a physician’s diagnosis supporting the existence of infection or risk, there is no way this court would ever be able to determine whether C was indeed a carrier of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, or whether A, B and D had been at a high risk of exposure to it.”
2006, NEW HAMPSHIRE – In 2006-April, in a hospital in New Hampshire many were coughing badly, that it alarmed the authorities, and they feared that a “whooping cough” epidemic was in the offing. In assessing the situation, they PCR tested many and afterwards concluded that indeed there was a looming whooping cough epidemic, and proof of this were the positive PCR test results. So thousands of health care workers were given antibiotics and vaccinated, thousands were furloughed, and many hospital beds were taken out of commission, including some in the ICU. Eight months later, the CDC released their finding officially saying that the disease that scared the hospital was not the ‘bacterium Bordetella pertussis’ or “whooping cough” but just the common cold.
Let’s delve into these two cases a bit more. In the first case, the Portugal Appeals Court has considered that the PCR test as unreliable in determining whether the subject, beyond reasonable doubt, is indeed a carrier of Sarscov. The Court cannot establish the connection between the positive PCR test and being a carrier of the virus, simply the PCR and the virus are NON SEQUITUR, they are two separate things.
xenIn the second case, the NH Hospital was wrong in interpreting that the positive PCR tests equated or pointed to the pertussis infection, which was just their assumption. Never did it occur to them that the positivity of PCR test can come from a different organism. It is clear, the PCR is testing all the organisms in the swab, regardless whether it is the target or suspected organism or not. So to think that the DNA fragment that the PCR is “calibrated” to only target ONE particular organism, that’s NON SEQUITUR
To DOH Secretary Francisco Duque and Usec. Rosario Vergeire: “Does a positive PCR test exactly identify Sars-Cov-2 virus as the SOURCE of the ‘detected’ RNA?” – Mga kapatid, the moment they hear this question, we should see this monstrous COVID house of cards come crashing down right away.
xenMga kapatid, don’t expect the Philippine media to help us. They have become the mouthpiece ot this criminal enterprise, and they are primed to trash everything that counters Duterte’s narrative. Mga kabayan, if you have access to the ears of those people who matter, our Vice President Leni Robredo, our Senators, Congressmen, Governors, and Mayors, please convey this message.
xenThis massive PCR tests that they do yields this monstrous daily stats, the reason they use to justify these draconian lockdowns that destroyed millions of jobs and businesses, devastated families, many giving up to suicides that rival this spurious Covid deaths. They keep FEARMONGERING us round the clock, every minute, every hour, 24/7. They have no scruples, just destroy, destroy, destroy. It’s killing us, it must stop NOW.
So now, mga kapatid, you should start questioning why round the clock, every hour, every minute, 24/7/365, we are being bamboozled by these numbers. What motivates them to do such thing?
BUT OF COURSE IT’S MONEY. Hundreds of billions of pesos have been spent on Covid, surely a good part of it went to their bottomless pockets, . . . and who said they are angels?. . . This INFERNAL APOCALYPTIC COLLUSION between this corrupt DUTERTE government and the diabolical disinformation media GMA7 has brought us in this PLANDEMIC cataclysm.
Last month, 2021-February, the PHL Duterte government allocated an additional PHP362 million to the Philippine Genome Center (PGC) “to sustain the requirements of genome sequencing in the country for the rest of the year, that includes the purchase of reagents, testing kits, and other logistical requirements.” Then I saw the following article in the PGC’s website:
It’s visible they keep mentioning the word “isolate”, want to know why? . . Well, they have to since their business is genome sequencing – you can’t perform sequencing without the isolate, it’s like you can’t play baskeball without the ball, or you can’t make banana que without the banana. Producing the isolate is a colossal endeavour as it is “100% science”, and the scientist that will achieve this should be ‘sooooooo proud’ to publish its literature to ALL the science journals of the world so everyone can peer-review it. -[ISOLATION: the act of separating a thing from everything else.]:. Right now, the consensus among the world’s eminent doctors and scientists is that there exists no isolate of Sars-Cov-2 virus, that not even the World Health Organization (WHO) or the CDC have it because they can’t find its literature. Indeed, this isolate remains as the HOLY GRAIL of this year-long Covid cataclysm.
So on March-1 (incidentally the start of the Covid vaccine roll-out in the country) I wrote the Department of Health (DOH) and the PGC a “Freedom of Information (FOI) Request”, for the literature or science paper, at least the URL, as regards “their isolates.” Up to this writing, more than three weeks ago, they have yet to respond. I strongly believe they don’t have these literature, because indeed they don’t have the isolates. If they do have the isolate, we should see thousands of scientists from around the world to flock Manila for a glimpse, and sample, of it. . . So if they don’t have the isolates, what are they sequencing? They can’t sequence the virus unless it is an isolate, or purified. . . So if they can’t sequence, what will they do with the PHP362 million? . . Hmmmm, nangangamoy TONGPAT$ ‘to . . ..
Mga kapatid, the ‘Illumination of Conscience’, or “the WARNING” as prophesied in 1965 in Garabandal, and in Medjugorje, will happen around this year’s Pentecost, or May 24 (+- ten days). Mga kapatid, I admonish you to repent for your sins now, and make reparations for your sins. The Warning will come too late for many. In that hour, millions will die, that include many of them, they “who hoarded wealth in the last days, their gold and silver will testify against them.”– James 5:3. Also pray for your parish priest, because after the Warning, the persecution of the Church will intensify, and priests will be on the run and hiding. Later, it will be hard to find a priest. Always pray the Holy Rosary. The Blessed MOTHER assures us: “in the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
CORRUPTION PANDEMIC in the Philippines
DUTERTE is TONGPAT$-king
In his first day in office, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno was welcomed by a 5 million pesos a day offer from racketeers and organizers of city vendors occupying the streets of the Divisoria, Blumentritt, and Quiapo areas. This illustrates the culture of corruption in the country. Five million pesos a day from a few city streets. . . .what if from the whole country?
In 2020-November, the Department of Health (DOH) provided the Senate with the price of Sinovac that it prioritized to buy: PHP3,600 for two doses. On 2020-December-10, Senator Angara presented a table that compares the prices of seven COVID-19 vaccine brands, and Sinovac came as second most expensive at that price:PHP3,600. Weeks passed without a flurry, that price seemed to have been “accepted”. Then ‘patriotic’ OFWs from Thailand and Indonesia questioned why Sinovac is just $5 in those countries, while here it is $38. So on January 17 Senator Ping Lacson rose to the Senate floor citing a news article on Bangkok Post dated 2021-Jan-16 with figures from the World Health Organization (WHO) and from the manufacturers, indicated the price of Sinovac was only $5 per dose – so our OFWs were right.
In this short video, Duterte was adamant in saying the actual price can’t be revealed as it is covered by a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) and that breaking it could ruin everything. Sinovac was transparent with Thailand and Indonesia, and with the WHO, how is it they did an NDA with Duterte? . . Hmmm, mga kapatid, you don’t have to be a Sherlock Holmes to unravel this little mystery. I strongly believe it’s Duterte who imposed the NDA to Sinovac for you know what. And in this video [at 11:56], Duterte “appealed” to those with “suspicions”, obviously referring to Senator lacson, not to go directly to the media, but be quiet, that he can go all the way to personally talk to them. Up to this writing, we’re still in the dark as to what is really the price of Sinovac. -[Sinovac has a long history of bribery. It is currently embroiled in a class action bribery complaint in New York. ]
Indeed in the Philippines, corruption is as ubiquitous as the jeepney. And this one could probably be among the biggest corruptions ever, and it’s hiding in plain sight: the PCR Testing. I strongly suspect this is not just a milking cow but a total DAIRY FARM for Duterte and his infernal minions.
Have you been PCR tested?
As of 2020-June, the Philippines has already exceeded its goal of 50,000 daily testing capacity. In 2020-November, DOH Secretary Francisco Duque set the price range for RT-PCR testing for private hospitals and laboratories at between P4,500-5,000, and for public facilities, at P3,800 per test. As of today, these prices have remained the same. Mga kapatid, look closely at those numbers. For the sake of convenience, let’s say out of 50,000 tests a day, 30,000 are PCR tests. At the price of 4,000 per test, truly Juan dela Cruz must be bleeding at least P120 million a day, or a whooping P4 billion a month. . . and nobody seems to care.
So I ask myself, “is the PCR test price of P4000 reasonable?”. . . That price has two components: the price of the PCR test kit, and the price of the laboratory processing that covers labor and equipments. . . so I vetted, first for the price of the PCR kits, which should come consistently worldwide. I searched the internet for the suppliers/manufacturers of PCR test kits. To contact them, I pretended to be a company called “Saint Michael Pharma, Inc.” with address in Nagcarlan, Laguna and my own personal mobile phone. I supposed they ‘googlemap’ my address and found it is legit, and some of them called my phone. After about three days, I got an avalanche of sales pitch, so many I must have read only a quarter of them. The cheapest PCR kit was US$1.3, and the priciest at US$2.7, the average must be lower than US$2. This is in accord with the news reports in India way back 2020-October, that the price of PCR kits must have reached rock bottom, (in 2020-March, the kit was about US$16) further crashing the price of RT-PCR test. They are quite transparent in India, unlike here in the Philippines where this corrupt government in collusion with this diabolical disinformation media GMA7 will always keep you in the dark, especially about prices.
Then I searched for the prevailing price of PCR test around the world. (NOTE: In the U.S., COVID tests are available at no cost nationwide, including the uninsured, at health centers and select pharmacies. And in almost all countries, especially in Europe, PCR test is free if referred by a government health authority or a hospital. ) The prices herein are the cheapest available for those who want it in their own initiative. The figures in bold red are the prices in Philippine peso, and immediately after that is the US$ equivalent (approximate).
*INDIA, 335, US$7 – as of 2021-January :[source]
*CHINA, 580, US$12 – as of 2021-January :[source]
*RUSSIA, 820, US$17 – as of 2020-April :[source]

*AUSTRALIA, 1,880, US$38 – as of 2021-January :[source]
(NOTE: in countries where there is ‘massive testing’ like India, China, Russia, and UAE, the cost of PCR test is relatively low, that shows indeed “it’s cheaper by the dozen”. . . . What about in the Philippines???)
Duterte will always say, “that’s impossible, I can’t do that because blah, blah, blah, . . .” . Well, you know, there are a thousand ways to skin the cat.
