The Destruction of Trust In The CDC and Public Health Establishment Is Now Complete

The new mask recommendations are a disgraceful debacle, doomed to fail...again

As soon as politicians, media members and incompetent and terrified “experts” became ideologically committed to ineffective interventions, they could never end.

The CDC has been the most reliable and consistent contributor to destructive and functionally useless mask recommendations. They’ve used unconscionably bad, dangerously incompetent and misleading “studies,” along with hilariously useless “hairdresser” examples to “prove” mask efficacy. Finally though, after throwing out their own pre-pandemic planning documents to promote a policy with no demonstrable benefits, the CDC displayed confidence in the “safe and effective” vaccines and removed their useless mask guidelines just two and a half months ago.

And yet. It’s all happening. The CDC flip flopped again. Masks are back.

Many of us arguing against lockdowns and masks and other related and equally ineffective “mitigations” have been pointing out for months now that the CDC has been unbelievably bad at their literal one job. We’ve been pointing out that the CDC’s credibility has been irreparably damaged based on their demonstrable incompetence and ever changing messaging with unchanging certainty. But no one, and I mean no one, could have foreseen that the death blow to the CDC’s credibility would come from the CDC itself.

I guess it shouldn’t be as surprising as it is that they put the final nail in their own coffin, but somehow their devotion to pseudoscience never ceases to amaze.

Bringing back masks is the end. It has to be. They were unequivocal in their assertions that the available vaccines were remarkably effective at preventing infections and transmission, symptomatic illness, severe cases and ultimately deaths.

Yesterday’s announcement is completely incompatible with their previous statements and should be an inescapable disaster for the country’s trust in “public health” and what the CDC, Fauci and others laughably refer to as “science.”

So let’s go over this unfolding debacle!

April 1
INTELLIGENCER HEADLINE: “CDC Data Suggests Vaccinated Don’t Carry, Can’t Spread Virus”
Got that? No hemming and hawing, no uncertainty, no “don’t spread the virus as much,” it literally says that the vaccinated CAN NOT SPREAD THE VIRUS. CAN NOT. It’s not possible for them to spread it, that’s what the “data” says.

Here’s a direct quote from the CDC director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky:

“Vaccinated people do not carry the virus — they don’t get sick,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC, told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Tuesday. That’s “not just in the clinical trials, but it’s also in real-world data.”

They do not carry the virus and do not get sick. Focus on the “they do not carry the virus” part for a second. If vaccinated people can’t carry it, how can they spread it?

They can’t! That’s what the CDC says:

Walensky was referring to a new CDC study that suggests those fully inoculated with the vaccines produced by Moderna and Pfizer don’t transmit the virus.

So naturally,

“The authorized vaccines are the key tool that will help bring an end to this devastating pandemic.”

They are the key tool. Masks used to be, of course, but now vaccines will end the pandemic. Let’s keep that in mind. ...

July 27
CNBC Headline: “CDC reverses indoor mask policy, saying fully vaccinated people and kids should wear them indoors”
There it is. The destruction of any remaining shreds of credibility the CDC and Fauci had left.

So what was the justification for this dramatic shift? The delta variant! The same variant that Fauci said the vaccines did “very well” against. ...

CDC Director Walensky Says The CDC Is Changing From "Fully Vaxxed" To "Up To Date," Meaning You'll Have To Get Boosted To Remain "Fully Vaxxed"
95   Patrick   2022 Jan 30, 8:33pm  


Politics have sucked all the air out of the Reason Room. When Biden announced his unconstitutional OSHA “vaxx” mandate, my employer reflexively required me to submit to the vaxx. Though I love my work and the people with whom I work, I told my supervisor that I would never inject this talismanic, experimental, harmful dreck.

None of the dozens who come on-site to work their gardens, nor the homeless men who sleep there, are required to jab. Some of the gardeners are Mexican immigrants who speak no English. They tell me that they won’t take la vacuna; they know people who have been hospitalized or died after the shot. No matter the language, word gets around. Though somehow, the word on the street doesn’t seem to reach the nightly news. The street isn’t sponsored by Big Pharma. Yet.

Knowing I was threatened with dismissal for declining the vaxx, these normally institution-averse people reached out to administrators to oppose my firing. It was kind of touching.

Applying logic to facts, the gardeners criticized the mandatory vaxx policy, especially as applied to my situation. Erstwhile campesinos with almost no schooling are out-thinking university and municipal leaders with advanced degrees, as well as governors, public health “experts,” the American President and seemingly all elected members of his Party.


While I spent six weeks under under the vaxx mandate Sword of Damocles, I sincerely sought, and eventually received, a religious vaxx exemption.

But the exemption was conditioned upon me submitting to a weekly test. Sample collection requires me to generate greenhouse gases by driving to the Student Health Center, where I stand outside and spit into a plastic funnel and tube. Together, this kit probably contains as much plastic as twenty Burger King straws, and millions of the kits are likely disposed each day disposed as medical waste. As are mask mandates, the testing process is environmentally unfriendly. ...

Spitting into a tube is revelatory. But it tells you far more about your government’s and media’s abiding untrustworthiness than it tells you about your health. Reliance on testing is yet another obvious sign that the entire “crush the virus” crusade has been a sham. Governments—Democrat politicians, in particular—that have persistently required lockdowns, masks, shots and testing—none of which work—have destroyed their credibility among thinking people. This mistrust should logically and chronologically extend far beyond the Covid overreaction. Nominal Experts, Pharma, news sources and political parties who have lied this often, this obviously and for this long, may—appropriately—never be trusted again.

How the CDC Abandoned Science...

Throughout this pandemic, the CDC has been a poor steward of that balance, pushing a series of scientific results that are severely deficient. This research is plagued with classic errors and biases, and does not support the press-released conclusions that often follow. In all cases, the papers are uniquely timed to further political goals and objectives; as such, these papers appear more as propaganda than as science. The CDC’s use of this technique has severely damaged their reputation and helped lead to a growing divide in trust in science by political party. Science now risks entering a death spiral in which it will increasingly fragment into subsidiary verticals of political parties. As a society, we cannot afford to allow this to occur. Impartial, honest appraisal is needed now more than ever, but it is unclear how we can achieve it. ...

Once that trust is broken, it’s not easily regained. One way out would be to reduce the CDC’s role in deciding policy, even during a pandemic. Expecting the executive agency tasked with conducting the science itself to also help formulate national policy—which must balance both scientific and political concerns and preferences—has proven a failure, because the temptation to produce flawed or misleading analysis is simply too great. In order to firewall policymaking from science, perhaps scientific agency directors shouldn’t be political appointees at all.

'Flawed science': Johns Hopkins professor crushes 'political propaganda' out of CDC

Dr. Marty Makary: 'The absolute worst studies' came from federal agency

Johns Hopkins University professor Dr. Marty Makary says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been "using science as political propaganda."

"The absolute worst studies that were done during the pandemic came out of the CDC," he said in an interview Tuesday with the Fox Business Network spotlighted by Breitbart News.

"It really is offensive. It should be offensive to anybody who believes in science, including our nation’s physicians. This is using science as political propaganda. The absolute worst studies that were done during the pandemic came out of the CDC."

Makary, a professor of public health, pointed to a CDC study in Arizona's Maricopa and Pima counties he said was "deeply flawed."

The agency used the study to recommend "universal indoor masking by students, staff members, faculty, and visitors in kindergarten through grade 12 (K–12) schools, regardless of vaccination status."

But Makary argued the "number of schools in the study didn’t even match the number of schools in the geographic area they said they were studying."

The CDC also has largely ignored the power of natural immunity, based on two "highly flawed studies," he said.

"And yet they parrot these studies again and again, and much of the media just reports it out," Makary told FBN.

"If you look at most of the misguidance that we’ve gotten, it has been based on flawed science, with a lot of the community complicit in what they’re putting out."

The Johns Hopkins professor said "basically, what they've been doing is saying, we've made our decision, now let's go find some data to support it."

This week, WND published an interview with a data analyst with a PhD in computational biology who has taken a deep dive into the CDC's Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System database, known as VAERS. She finds that the data signal a human catastrophe.

Meanwhile, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, while continuing to undermine VAERS, still hasn't fulfilled her promise to a senator to provide "the data" indicating how many Americans have died from the COVID shots.

CDC Casually Admits Covid Nose Swabs Ended Up in a Lab for Genomic Sequencing Analysis

The Hubris of Modern Medicine Caused Billions to Be Injected With "Hidden Genes" in the mRNA Sequences in COVID-19 Vaccines. It's Time We Tell Them We Know.
Parts of cryptic genetic code lead to proteins that are almost certainly expressed by cells in the vaccinated along with Spike - with unknown effects. No one has any idea what to do about it now.

The past two years have led to a disastrous plummet in the public’s trust of “public health”. According to Dr. Vinay Prasad, the causes include

Flip-flopping on masks within six weeks - and Fauci admitted to lying, for evidently no reason (cloth masks are not used by medical professionals);

Masking two year olds, evicting families from airplanes over a two-year old not handling masking;

Hypocrisy caught in photos on videos on the importance of masking;

Blood clots due to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, downplayed at first, and then merely demoted;

Booster mandates, objected to by Gruber & Kraus who resigned over the fact that booster mandates were needed in site of the science showing no long-term benefits;

Terrible studies on masks and on health outcomes in kids with COVID-19 compared to vaccination;

Financial conflicts of interests throughout public health implicating epidemiologists doing studies to support specific policies. The US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy’s history of receiving $400,000 from Carnival Cruise before his appointment.

To these recently pointed to by Dr. Vinay Prasad, I will add:

Allowing incorrect and inaccurate calculations of mRNA vaccine efficacy;

Implementation of a woefully flawed application of RT-PCR for COVID-19 testing, while reporting zero false positives;

Implementing unrealistic and futile control policies re: outdoor events and outdoor dining;

Denying instead of addressing the PCR false positive problem;

Unwarranted claims on the tissue fates of the spike protein;

Silence on the findings of insertion of mRNA spike-encoded reverse transcribed DNA in human cells;

Locking down the US and the resulting data showing lockdowns had no effect on the virus;

Promotion of studies that claim to show that vaccine-induced immunity is superior to natural immunity;

Reliance on non-peer-review “preprints”

Reliance on flawed and fraudulent studies allegedly showing no efficacy of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine

Reliance on late-COVID-19 studies of treatment options that are not highly profitable;

Denial of the science on early treatment with options that are not highly profitable;

Implementation of the remdesivir treatment protocol based on an interim analysis published as a press release;

The implementation of perverse incentives for COVID-19 cases and COVID-19 deaths after starving hospitals of cash via the 3-month lockdown;

Whistleblowers that stepped forward (to Del Bigtree and the Highwire team) reporting willful miscoding of deceased patients with COVID-19;

Interference with public discourse via pressure on social media outlets to allow only discussions that match the official narrative;

Acting as though the deaths and adverse events reported to VAERS and other systems are not caused by the vaccines.

As if those are not reason enough…

Now we have yet another reason to no trust public health. The public health agenda caused billions of people around the planet to be injected with the spike-protein encoding RNAs without first determining whether other parts of the RNA might be read as other proteins.

the CDC analysis on pediatric vaccines is pure garbage
this is not public health, it's public harm

el gato malo
2 min ago

one fact in medical care is unarguable:

medical interventions are everywhere and always a risk/benefit calculation.

this is just bedrock reality. nothing is free. you must always compare that which a treatment will gain you to that which it will cost you. you must weigh risk as well as reward.

anyone pushing just reward is lying to you.

i could douse you in gasoline and light you on fire. it would reduce your chance of being stung by a bee.

seem like a good trade?

and the CDC is, yet again, failing to do this or even acknowledge the concept.

and as a result, they are selling poison as preventative. again.

In 2009, the largest health care fraud settlement in Department of Justice history was settled. This was the largest criminal fine of any kind imposed in the U.S and the largest ever civil fraud settlement against a pharmaceutical company. At the time. Who is this pharmaceutical company that so egregiously disregarded the laws of this country, regarding bribery and fraud? This campaign endangered patients. They advertised dosages of a drug that the FDA considered dangerous. That company that did all this is Pfizer.

So why is it, that when Pfizer executives tell our government now that another booster is needed, when they present an incomplete data set supporting the use of the mRNA vaccines in children - they are not questioned by the main stream media. Maybe because we now know that this media is essentially state sponsored media? The Blaze obtained documents by FOIA documents shows that main stream media has essentially been paid off, when it comes to COVID-19.

The CDC, FDA, and Pfizer/Moderna can produce all the ill-designed studies they want in order to present a case to the public that their vaccines are safe and effective, and if they truly were, there would be no evidence to be found that suggests the contrary.

However, evidence to the contrary DOES exist, even if some of it is still circumstantial. It exists in droves, and it’s growing. The “authorities and experts” are desperately trying to close their eyes, stick their fingers in their ears, and hope that if they don’t see it, we won’t either, and it doesn’t exist. Now we find ourselves at this incredibly strange point in time when using our own eyes and ears to make assessments on reality is considered taboo, and in order to break through the censorship wall of acceptance, we must agree with those at the top who have their eyes and ears willfully closed. ...

Millions of parents were coerced into vaccinating their children for a disease based on the warnings of severity by the CDC. Now, after countless children have been vaccinated, and within those, countless have been needlessly injured, the CDC drastically changed some of their key metrics used for measuring the severity and hoped no one would notice.

As for Pfizer, they hold the title for the largest corporate criminal in history, so we’re all very clear where their priorities lie.

If there were any justice in the world—or at least the executive branch—then the headquarters of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would be evacuated in an orderly fashion, then razed to the ground with dynamite, then paved over with 9-inch thick cement.

But we don't live in that world. We live in a world where the CDC gets to drop a bunch of taxpayer change hiring outside consultants to try and restore its own shameful visage...

Ever wonder why of all the federal health agencies, the CDC is based in Atlanta? Fun fact: the original mission of the CDC was to spray the South with DDT, including millions of homes!

From their own “museum” page!


On July 1, 1946, the Communicable Disease Center (CDC) was founded by a visionary leader in public health, Dr. Joseph Mountin.

[ … ]

At first, CDC was located on the sixth floor of the Volunteer Building on Peachtree Street, in Atlanta, Georgia, hundreds of miles from Washington, DC and other federal agencies, and deep in the South, once the heart of the malaria zone.

[ … ]

The agency initially focused on fighting malaria by killing mosquitoes. In fact, the pursuit of malaria was the main focus of CDC. [ … ] DDT, available since 1943, was CDC’s primary weapon against malaria, and the agency’s early challenges included obtaining enough trucks, sprayers, and shovels necessary to wage the war on mosquitoes. Over six and a half million homes were sprayed.

Oh wait Reuters says:


According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), the regulation of DDT began in the 1950s and 1960s because of “mounting evidence of the pesticide’s declining benefits and environmental and toxicological effects”, here. Reuters was unable to corroborate any role the CDC might have played in DDT’s initial use or its later regulation by the federal government. It is likely that the CDC’s policies would be in line with the EPA’s stance since the 1950s, as a fellow government agency.

Wow, thanks for the clarification, Reuters! I guess they never would have done a thing like promoting the poisoning millions of people in the 1940s with a substance that was clearly regulated in the 1950s and more importantly, they certainly wouldn’t go about promoting poisoning people now! Someone ought to let the CDC know someone probably hacked their history museum page. I mean if it were true Reuters would have found out and let us know, right?

We really need to bring back DDT.

COVID Affects Your Memory

Masks have never worked. Testing has always been problematic. Kids were never high-risk. The past has never been altered. Welcome to the COVID consensus, circa midterms 2022.

When anti-lockdown protests began in the spring of 2020, national media outlets were quick to label the protesters far-right white supremacists whose concerns were the product of “ignorance, privilege, and anti-Black racism.” During this time, playgrounds and beaches were closed, park benches were taped off, and thousands of small businesses permanently shut down. As lockdowns dragged on, drug overdoses rose sharply, schoolchildren were cut off from basic services, and 1 in 4 young people reported suicidal thoughts. Hospital patients died alone, police broke up religious services, and funerals were restricted. Those who believed the costs of lockdowns outweighed any benefits were called “covidiots” and the civil liberties they appealed to were labeled “freedumbs.”

The American Civil Liberties Union, which had previously argued against coercive public health measures, was nowhere to be found. The American left, with which I’d always identified because of its claims to uphold workers’ rights and principles of bodily autonomy, now explicitly advocated for forced quarantines of healthy people and for policies that dramatically increased the wealth of the world’s richest at the expense of the working class.

CDC and FDA 'altered' Covid guidance and even 'suppressed' findings while under political pressure, bombshell report suggests: Whistle-blower employees say they feared 'retaliation' if they spoke up
Federal investigators interviewed top-level directors and managers at agencies
They also opened a hotline for employees to report 'political interference'
Government Accountability Office uncovered widespread allegations of this
They raised fears that Covid guidance may have been 'altered or suppressed'
GAO warned none of the agencies had systems in place for reporting allegations
Said they had failed to train staff in how to report and spot political interference
Follows allegations White House waged a war on science early in the pandemic

what people forget is there was this big early hope that the masters of woo-woo were going to come and silence these upstarts. some saffron monk from the secret valley whose name may not be spoken would float in and clean house. instead, anyone who tried got eviscerated. and very, very quickly, these disciples found reasons to stay on mountaintops.

the mismatch was far too obvious and nothing dissolves the mystique of the lifetime woo-woo practitioner like getting knocked out in 30 seconds by some 3rd year fighter from a good school.

the true power of woo-woo is making you too afraid to challenge it.

and a lot more of the world works like this than you think.

because woo-woo is absolutely fricking everywhere.

how do you miss the most blatant safety signal in vaccine history?
the trick, it would appear, is to ignore your own guidelines and never even look for it ...

the CDC has become a helmet made of cheap, walmart easter bunny grade chocolate.

and it’s getting us all hurt.


131   Patrick   2022 Jun 22, 10:08pm  


The only thing that would appear shocking at this point would be for the FDA and CDC to stop all “vaccines” immediately, open inquiries into all deaths that occurred in healthy people within 60-days of receiving the clot shots, and call on the justice department to investigate these agencies for corruption and malfeasance. This would be the fox telling the farmer that something terrible has happened in the hen house while the farmer asked the fox to guard it.
