WOW!!! CDC Completely Reverses Course. IT'S OVER!

And, just like that, it was over.

This is HUGE news folks. In bureaucrat speak, this is a near-complete cave-in to the actual facts:

  • No symptoms? No problem.
  • Vaccinated or unvaccinated? Same guidance.
  • Exposed? No need to even quarantine.
  • Students exposed? They can stay in class, what the hell, right?
If you managed to maintain your integrity through this awful period of time, congratulations! You are one of the rock stars of this story. You are a solid individual who has courage and stood firm and tall when it mattered most.

As for the people who didn’t, some can be forgiven. But many cannot.

Those who could have and “should” have known better? The doctors who failed to utilize known and proven early treatments to save lives? The public health authorities that locked people down and forced masks onto children’s faces without a shred of supporting science to back those decisions? Medical hospital administrators who took the monetary bait and forced patients onto toxic and deadly regimens of Remdesivir and ventilators (again, without any supporting evidence!). The NIH treatment panel that still - to this day - does not recommend vitamin D, or any of the other actual safe and effective early treatments?

Sorry, not sorry, those people need to suffer real and lasting public consequences. Some doctors should lose their licenses. Some bureaucrats need to lose their jobs while others need to go to trial.

I feel most acutely for those who got caught up and suffered terribly as a result. I feel truly awful for all the people prevented from being at a loved one’s passing, or who ,as a condition of continued employment, were coerced into getting Covid jabs they neither wanted nor needed.

There are far too many tragic cases out there. Far too many young lives were lost and continue to be lost. I am angry that it happened and at the petty, ignorant bureaucrats who forced it to happen. “Sudden Adult Death Syndrome” is a thing now, and the attempts to normalize it by the press have left me thinking that those companies and journalists who engaged in this ought to be barred for life from ever being in the business again.

Here are a few out of many such candidates:

One prominent case of an avoidable tragedy was that of 17-year-old Sean Hartman:

Dan Hartman is sure that his hockey-loving son died from a COVID vaccination, but he’s being told very little about what happened. The Ontario dad says he wants answers about the sudden death of 17-year-old Sean.

“I cannot grieve him properly without the truth. It’s different if someone dies in a car accident or disease or suicide. This is none of them—this is unknown,” said Hartman in an interview on NTD’s “The Nation Speaks” program aired on July 30.

According to the Beeton Athletic Association Cash Draw’s tribute to Sean, he began playing hockey at age 5 and went on to play for the TNT Tornadoes in New Tecumseth, Ontario, for three years before returning to his hometown of Beeton in his major Bantam year.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ontario Minor Hockey Association implemented a policy that required players aged 12 and over to be vaccinated or risk not being able to play.

Hartman said that Sean decided to get the shot last August in order to continue playing, as hockey was his passion. In Ontario, there is no minimum age of consent under the Health Care Consent Act, which means youth of Sean’s age can get vaccinated without parental consent.

“So, on August 25, he had the Pfizer vaccine. And on August 29, he went to the emergency [room]—he had brown circles around his eyes, and a rash and he was vomiting,” Hartman said.

“They sent him home with only Advil. The doctor didn’t do two blood tests that he should have done. I’ve been told by another doctor that he should have done them. And on the morning of September 27, he was found dead on the floor beside his bed.”

There are thousands and thousands of similar and tragic cases. Too many.

All along the way, I have been saying the same thing as Drs. McCullough, Malone, Urso, Kory, Marik, Rose, and Steve Kirsch among many others; the Covid vaccines should never have been put into every possible person.

There should have been an age and risk stratification approach. Only some people should have gotten them, but never into healthy children. Never.

The demonization of even simple and entirely appropriate questioning was horrific and continues on to this day, as I outlined in a recent video on “Fact Checkers” wherein I covered a truly horrific New York Times article by Sheera Frenkel. In it, Ms. Frenkel went overboard on hyperbolic, emotionally-laden verbiage in a brazen attempt to mischaracterize any questioning by parents as being entirely due to misinformation, conspiracy theories, and a black-and-white stance as “anti-vaxers.”

Well, if hesitant parents are anti-vaxers, then we have to say that those folks are in the vast majority (and rightly so) while it is Ms. Frenkel and the New York Times who are in a tiny minority that is horribly out of alignment with the data.

Far from being fringe, the view that children do not need the Covid-19 jab, it turns out, represents either a significant minority (for older age cohorts) or indeed an overwhelming majority (for younger) of parents both within the U.S., the UK and elsewhere.

Are the 95% of U.S. parents who have declined to get their 0-5 year olds vaccinated for Covid-19 ‘anti-vax?’ What about the 89% of UK parents who as of the end of July had declined vaccination for their 5-11 year olds?

Of course they aren’t. They are simply recognising the reality that the extreme age discrimination of Covid makes vaccination unnecessary for the vast majority of otherwise healthy kids, as does infection-acquired immunity.

How it ever came to be that “the Left” became the biggest cheerleaders of court-proven corrupt pharma companies is for the psychologists and social scientists to unravel. Maybe we could include some ethicists and prosecutors as well.

Early Treatments

More importantly and tellingly in this sad saga, early treatments should have been discovered and wisely used, as they were in many other countries.

The simple fact that the pair of charts displayed below weren’t ever a healthy and vigorous topic of discussion speaks volumes about just how bad the corruption really was.

For more than a year, Uttar Pradesh has been kicking the ass of every western nation in dealing with Covid and they did it with simple, effective early treatment packages that looked like this:

The kit included:

  • Ivermectin
  • Azithromycin (Z-pac)
  • Doxycycline
  • Zinc
  • Vitamins D & C
It’s plain as day that this approach worked and worked very well, not just at keeping deaths down, but cases too. With fewer cases that were less serious, it’s a pretty safe bet that they managed to keep long Covid down as well.

Dr. Pierre Kory recently penned an exquisitely good piece on exactly how Uttar Pradesh accomplished their astonishing feat. It all began with a leader who was unafraid to begin by rooting out corruption:

The Miracle Not-Heard Around The World: The Success of Uttar Pradesh

Uttar Pradesh (UP) is a state in the north of India with a population of 231 million people. It’s the home of the Taj Mahal. If it were a country, it would be the sixth largest in the world.

In my view, the foundation of UP’s historic achievement rests on the integrity of its Chief Minister (CM) Yogi Adityanath. He is a Hindu monk and known for his policy of zero tolerance against corruption. The importance of this quality cannot be overstated, especially given the last 2 years of unceasing corruptions of medical science and public health policy that continuously emerge each day.

Since taking office as CM over three and half years ago, he took action against 775 corrupt officials in UP from the Indian Administrative Service and the Indian Police Service. His leadership during COVID should serve as a historically inspiring example to politicians. They should take note of how honest, forthright policies designed with the singular goal of serving and protecting the public good can succeed in politics.

In March of 2020, Yogi Adityanath convened (and chaired throughout) a committee of 11 senior government officials tasked with managing different aspects like surveillance and contact tracing, testing and treatment, sanitization, containment, enforcement, doorstep delivery, issues of migrants, communication strategy etc.

Note that UP started out strong right from the beginning. Early on in the pandemic, in March 2020, taking the lead from India’s national protocol, UP immediately adopted hydroxychloroquine for use in prevention of COVID for all its Health Care Workers as well as household contacts of all laboratory confirmed cases.

Recall that HCQ’s promise in treatment had been known since the original SARS pandemic, a fact long ago highlighted by Anthony Fauci. Yet in COVID, when its threat to Pharma as an effective treatment became reality, Fauci essentially led the first Disinformation campaign against a repurposed drug in the pandemic. His campaign is described in RFK Jr’s book, The Real Anthony Fauci in the deeply referenced first section of Chapter 1, called “Killing Hydroxychloroquine.”

Then, in August 2020, UP broke from the Feds and switched their protocol to ivermectin after an “experiment” in UP’s Agra, a city of 1.6 million inhabitants. The head of the state’s Rapid Response Team units, Dr. Anshul Pareek, had decided to conduct a study of ivermectin as a preventive agent based on a report from a veterinarian (to be fair, it was also based on other promising clinical reports in humans).

UP immediately started administering ivermectin to close contacts of positive cases in the district and noticed profoundly positive results. Based on these observations, the state health authorities gave the green light to use off-label ivermectin not only in prevention… but in treatment. This was their protocol for use of ivermectin:

  1. Close contacts of COVID-19 patients
  2. Health care workers
  3. General care of COVID-19 patients
Notice that UP’s government did what my colleagues and I had been imploring since the pandemic began. Employ a risk/benefit decision-making analysis in an emergency. Like you do in war. Even if the view was that the clinical trials evidence for HCQ or IVM was “insufficient,” the evidence for harm was near nil, while the evidence for harm of widespread untreated COVID was obviously catastrophic.

So, why didn’t the western countries somehow manage to notice the incredible success of Uttar Pradesh? I say it’s because they didn’t want to. It was willful and malignant and evil. Fauci (as a placeholder for every corrupt and conflicted health professional) preferred the power, the money, and the fame that came from a long crisis. These conflicted people thought nothing of killing and harming more people preferring instead to keep the crisis in play as long as possible.

We suffered as long as we did, and so many people died, because our governments don’t care about their own people. Because big media doesn’t care about their fellow citizens. Because corporations, and especially pharma companies, don’t care about people. They care more about money, control, and power than they do anything else.

That is my firm and blunt assessment. These people cannot be reformed. They are damaged goods. The institutions cannot be reformed, they must be dismantled and begun anew. The corporations cannot be salvaged, they must be disincorporated and their stock and bondholders made to suffer great losses so that next time capital asks a few more questions.

The Great Walk-Back

So why is the CDC walking back their “guidance” at this time? I don’t know, but there aren’t any new studies of which I am aware that would have decisively shifted the balance one way or the other.

Instead, I think it was the Danish government making it illegal to administer vaccines to minors (<18 years of age) after finally noticing that the risk-reward ratio was not favorable.

It’s going to become very difficult for the CDC to maintain any integrity at all if some western health agencies begin to state the obvious while the CDC continues to advise that its own citizens sacrifice their children and selves to the Covid vaccine machine.

While that remains their advice – stupidly – it won’t for long is my guess. Bureaucracies have to walk things back in stages.

And then there’s an increasing number of countries openly noticing that their all-cause mortality numbers are far too high and they are beginning to investigate:

When approximately 4,000 too many people die in a three-week span, that’s very uncomfortable and eventually, people notice. And, when they do, oh boy, look out!

Or, maybe it’s simply that the CDC has read the latest polls and realized that the Democrats are going to lose their majorities and are trying to get in front of the investigations the Republicans are sure to launch as soon as they can?

Whatever the reason, it’s too little and too late. The CDC has forever lost my trust and everybody who works there bears responsibility for what transpired, some more than others, of course.


It’s over folks. Pack it up! The great Covid pandemic is over. As I predicted in December of 2021, Omicron was the end of Covid, it just took far too long, and far too many additional lives for that reality to sink in.

I predict it will be many more months before Canada, New Zealand and Australia finally awaken from their authoritarian nightmares, but that too will happen. Hopefully with extreme consequences for Trudeau, Morrison, Arden, Andrews, Ms. Freeland, and countless other bureaucratic martinets.

To help heal from this disaster, we need to be as welcoming as possible to those who finally wake up and want to be re-included as good-standing members of The Remnant. Of course, they will be on probation forever as a result, but welcome they will be.

More immediately, I call for a global apology to the vaccine injured and their loved ones who were horribly gaslit by the medical establishment. They deserve our support, and they shall get it.

And for everyone who stood strong, you are my lifelong friends and I salute each and every one of you!

Your Faithful Information Scout,

Dr. Chris Martenson

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

Thank You For All You Do!!!

Chris… my wife and I are grateful EVERY day I came across your YT vids in late January early February 2020… If I hadn’t followed your Data and Insights we too may have fallen for this BS. Please do NOT STOP doing what you do!!


Share This Widely!

I’m sending this to a bunch of people and hope everyone else does too! Thank you so much Chris. And remember - it’s at least partly about the elections. I really hope people don’t get so overconfident that they don’t bother to vote.


Of Course, Not Politically Motivated

Seems pretty convenient this close to elections?


Great Article

This part really struck me:

"That is my firm and blunt assessment. These people cannot be reformed. They are damaged goods. The institutions cannot be reformed, they must be dismantled and begun anew. The corporations cannot be salvaged, they must be disincorporated and their stock and bondholders made to suffer great losses so that next time capital asks a few more questions."
While making coffee this morning a similar thought occurred to me. There has to be either truly radical reform or a dismantling of the system. I am realistic enough to know that the likelihood of radical reform is virtually non-existent. For me, the censorship was the last straw. It was bad enough that whomever is actually running this country has created a monstrous cluster-coitus of a mess. But now, we are not even allowed to talk about it. Enough is enough. They have to go.

Interestingly, Berenson is about to sue the Biden admin over his getting kicked off Twitter - he won the lawsuit against Twitter and got reinstated, but now found out it was at the white house’s request. Can’t wait to see what happens!


Eyes Back On Uttar Pradesh!

Excellent write up Chris, and thank you for refreshing our view of Uttar Pradesh. That single juxtaposition of charts, along with knowing that the two regions (US vs Uttar Pradesh) are actually comparable in population (335 Million US, vs 247 Million Uttar Pradesh) is the single most powerful testament to the efficacy of repurposed drug early treatment cocktails, which (predating mRNA transfections and Paxlovid) is testament to the insanity to which we have been exposed.
Compared to Uttar Pradesh, the US is a horse of a different color.


Pure Blood For Life!

So happy I stood my ground and refused the jab.


Over For Now Or Over Completely?

I do wonder if this is a temporary thing for the midterm elections or if it is something for the long game. Time will tell if there is a new Omnicron specific shot that comes out in a few months which will be pushed again, or if they are just moving on to Monkey Pox, Small Pox or some other virus next completely. I will take it as a victory, but at the same time be realistic that something else might be coming down the road to fit the gap while giving people time to think it is completely over and that they have won. This battle might be won, but the war is not yet over. Congratulations though fellow Pure-bloods!


I Dunno Guys

So part of my says “yaaaay!” and the other part is asking “are those evil clowns backing off because the damage is done, the seed of destruction has now germinated?”


Well they are still recommending you get vaccinated and boosted and Germany is rolling out a color coded vaccine passport where unvaccinated have to be masked so…


Thanks To You Chris

My husband and I had misgivings about the shot based on personal history with other shots and the speed it was developed. However, if it wasn’t for your commentary we might have been convinced by the world’s greatest psyop to get it anyway. The amount of work you put in gathering alernative scientific information saved a bunch of people’s health and lives. I owe you. Some of my friends and family do too. If you need anything just ask.


Great Article

The tide is turning… I strongly recommend watching “SHOTS: Eugenics to Pandemics” via Two and a half hours of eye opening information. Chris you should see if you can interview the guys who produced it.



Ditto, Chris! Well said, likewise, I am SO grateful to have found you and this community during this insane time! It’s unbelievable that so many people out there, especially those in positions of power and authority, could be so far out of touch and with such a loss of integrity throughout all of this. I hope that in the aftermath of it all, people like you and everyone here can have louder voices and help to spread the same attitudes and openness to ideas and information to truly “build back better” ?


A Tragedy Of The Highest Possible Level

“More immediately, I call for a global apology to the vaccine injured and their loved ones who were horribly gaslit by the medical establishment.” They deserve our support, and they shall get it.
This part of it, The Vaccine Injured part, it’s not over. It’s just beginning. I’m sorry for not shouting from the rooftops a little louder. ?


Some Concerns

Not to put a damper on it, but I’m a bit worried this is because they have now got the jabs into the standard childhood schedule and also will now auomatically combine the covid with the yearly flu jab as a single injection. In other words they now have incorporated it at both ends and no longer need to spend money or energy convincing anyone – most people will automatically get it in the usual (pre covid) ways.


Censorship At “science” Journals And Masks

This is purely infuriating…somebody does some good science on masks and CO2 levels, it’s just data, and it’s accepted by a journal (as a letter) which the journal later retracts because, well, “someone” complained.

When a retracted paper is republished in a new journal, should it note the retraction?

A few readers have asked us that question as they forwarded a paper published in May in Environmental Research, an Elsevier title. The study, “Carbon dioxide rises beyond acceptable safety levels in children under nose and mouth covering: Results of an experimental measurement study in healthy children,” bore striking similarities to a paper by the same authors that was retracted from JAMA Pediatrics in July 2021. 

That retraction was the second for the paper’s first author, Harald Walach, who also lost an affiliation with a university in Poland. Walach tells us that he let the editor know about the JAMA Pediatrics retraction before he submitted the manuscript:

I think the retraction was politically motivated and did not find any true fault in the paper. I have, of course, notified the editor, before submitting it that it had been retracted and explained in my pre-inquiry why I think that the retraction was void and flawed. Following this the editor invited me to submit the paper in the full version and then submitted it to a new review sending it out to three indepenedent experts, who, of course, knew about its history and found it valid. I changed various details and added some clarifications during the publication process, which is, why the final published paper is considerably longer and contains some more details that had neither been contained in the long version that was published as a preprint nor in the supplemental material, for instance the back to the envelope calculations that show that our measures are well in agreement with those calculated from expected versions, as is done with capnography.

This shows: our paper was valid all along, the retraction was flawed and pointless, and the publication which is available now is a valid rendering of our findings.

When we asked Jose L. Domingo, one of the editors in chief of Environmental Research, whether the authors had told the journal that the paper had been retracted, he originally said no, and that had the editors known, they probably wouldn’t have sent it out for peer review. 

But when he checked with an associate editor, he said he’d been mistaken. Domingo told us that the authors had said, in their message accompanying the submission:

The paper was originally published by JAMA Pediatrics as a Research Letter. Due to the short format and the fact that a lot of people had not accessed the supplemental methodological information critique was voiced and obviously pressure put on the journal such that the paper was withdrawn, in our view without good reason and without fair hearing. The final “scientific review” the journal said it had received was never sent to us, despite our asking twice.

The authors also wrote:

Please be aware that the current shape of the paper reflects multiple cycles of improvements already, and the core question is whether experts deem our measurements valid. Naturally we think they are. Everything else, the framing, the political consequences, is negotiable, not our data. We would prefer a swift desk-rejection, if you do not believe that the paper is publishable in your journal.

It turns out that the paper had been submitted to Toxicology Reports, another Elsevier journal, before being submitted to Environmental Research. But after what Walach called “an unfair review process, a fact that even the second reviewer commented on as inappropriate,” the paper was rejected. Walach said:

Although none of the reviews that came back said that the paper was flawed the editors rejected it nevertheless. I assume that it had to do with another paper that was obviously published in that journal and critically discussed at a time, when our paper was submitted and in review.

This poor guy simply did some measurements, thought they were important and wanted to share them. That's how science works. But Science(TM), on the other hand, is a mostly political process and this guy's findings weren't politically popular at the time. So not only was the paper rejected twice, but Harald Walach also lost an affiliation with a university in Poland. That's a "public hanging" and all other scientists take note. That's how gatekeeping functions. In other words, it's not a system with any apparent integrity and simply don't think you can teach enough values in time to make such a system salvageable at all. Yeah, I am talking about you JAMA Pediatrics.

yeah you notice they are not giving up on the jab in the new policy… they still recommend vaccination and boosters… so its not like Sweden yet… Jab still 100% good for everyone


A Great Day

I think I owe you and Dr. McCullough my life for your courage and early leadership in going against the narratives. I remember listening to you during the darkest of times these last 2 years and how you raised my spirits with your common sense and humor. I remember your early interviews with Dr. Mallik and the hope you both instilled. This is a great day and milestone in the fight. Thank you Chris.


Chain Of Fools

For the CDC to do an abrupt about-face is highly suspect. All or none absolutist thinking? 180 degrees from sick is still sick. Aside from being that mental, these individuals do not see how their warped sense of self concept does not match with what others, who are paying attention to actual facts and real first hand physical experiences, are seeing while watching liars performing their poisonous scripts to billions of people, thinking their poodle acts are so good, it constantly convinces everyone. That is delusional and yet VERY insidious and manipulative.
Every child has to decide at a very early age whether to trust what is being said, versus what is actually being done and acted out by large, powerful adults as what is “true.”
Many must choose what is being said over what is actually being done as a matter of survival. Children have to be able to trust those taking care of their needs even if they are far from trustworthy. And as a means for survival it is safer at times, and can mean the difference between life and death, for them to choose to believe what is being said - the narrative - versus trying to cope with the truth of what is being done at a time when they cannot possibly handle in any capacity, situations well beyond their physical and mental/emotional abilities at the time.
Further, children learn very quickly what is taboo, okay, not okay within their family systems. The issue of and locus of authority within every family system is well established prior to birth. And children must learn to get on with the system beginning with birth to survive. Authority is always first learned and experienced from the child’s perspective, which is nearly always from a power imbalance place. Their decisions, out of necessity, must therefore be about survival.
And this very early decision will carry throughout a person’s life. And worse, the so called professionals, like CDC know this. One of the main jobs of the psyche is protection, especially for a developing child. When pressures are extreme in a traumatic situation, this leaves a very strong impression in the mind and if the child survives a dangerous situation, that learning and experience will be understood and remain fixed within their neurology as “survival.” It will be very difficult to change later on in life even if that strategy is no longer appropriate for an adult.
I believe this phenomenon is a strong part of why so many succumbed to the lies and pressures of people like those running the CDC. Survival issues as an adult will be triggering the survival issues of the child, and what has been stored in the person for surviving from the past will come leaping forward into the present as how to survive in the present. That is how they survived before and it is how they will survive again - maybe. When life is threatened fear is usually the response. Often the rational mind loses its ability to think and the emotional response takes over. And at times of great fear, the child within will look to authority to tell it what to do. It is a primordial response in all of us.
That is why these corrupted, public individuals who have massive sway and authority are so much worse. And yet they are most likely acting from the models they had as children. There is a 50%/50% chance a child who grew up with offenders in the home, will themselves become offenders. This is the where the Stockholm Syndrome arises from, as children will either identify with the abuser or not. If they do identify with the abuser, then their literal core of identify will depend on them acting as the role of abuser to maintain their identity. It is a condemnation for them. It is also why so many cling to it so tenaciously as it is a survival issue for them. Ironic in this Chain of Fools.
