Remember all that fuss about not having enough ventilators way back when every aspect of our lives first started revolving around COVID-19?
— One America News (@OANN) March 27, 2020
Most people probably think all the noise died down because we dropped a ton of cash buying more.
The second part about spending a fortune stocking up on ventilators sure is true—and not just in the U.S. The whole Western world went nuts for ventilators in March of 2020.
And, what do you know? China just happened to be standing by ready, willing, and able to meet our newfound demand. (Though they weren’t always upfront about the money changing hands.)
China is portraying itself as a magnanimous and trustworthy global leader in the coronavirus response.
eg: sending ventilators to Italy. Turns out they’re exports with purchase deals, not donations.

That’s not really surprising, though, since the whole idea that ventilators were the “first choice” treatment for patients suffering moderate to severe COVID symptoms came straight from the Chicoms themselves.
As cracker-jack investigative journalist, Jordan Schachtel reported way back in September (above info also from Jordan):
In early March[…] WHO released COVID-19 provider guidance documents to healthcare workers. Citing experience “based on current knowledge of the situation in China,” WHO recommended mechanical ventilators as an early intervention for treating COVID-19 patients. The guidance recommended escalating quickly, if not immediately, to mechanical ventilation. In doing so, they cited[…] Chinese medical journals[…] claiming that “Chinese expert consensus” called for “invasive mechanical ventilation” as the “first choice” for people with moderate to severe respiratory distress.

If you read my last column on how the idea of imposing catastrophic lockdowns (aka, quarantining healthy people) in response to a respiratory virus was invented whole-cloth by the Chicoms and pushed on an unsuspecting world via gullible or corrupt Western officials, this story is going to ring a few exceedingly unpleasant bells.
But you might want to brace yourself, gentle reader. By the time we’re finished today, you’re liable to find yourself gripped by even higher levels of unprecedented outrage.
For, you see, as Jordan also reported in a piece that should have netted the guy a Pulitzer if the award weren’t just another garbage globalist psyop:
Mechanical ventilators have long been considered a last resort solution for treating patients with respiratory illness. The exact percentage varies, but the studies are unanimous in concluding that the vast majority of people who are put on a mechanical ventilator never make it off of one. In treating respiratory ailments, the highly invasive, high-risk maneuver[…] is usually prefaced by less invasive measures, such as positive airway pressure machines like CPAP or BiPAP devices, or simple oxygen delivering nose prongs.
Yet for some reason, “when COVID-19 hit, the long-established scientific guidance on proper patient care was tossed out the window, along with other established norms” in favor of blindly following advice from China.
And, of course, the remarkable decision to ignore everything we knew about ventilators and consign patients diagnosed with even moderate cases of a COVID-19 to a much better than 50-50 chance of never coming out of the hospital alive was pushed by the usual COVID-19 suspects—the same reprehensible crew whose lies inflicted the toxic pseudoscientific snake oil of lockdowns on us.
Hysterical epidemiological modelers, the same ones that had just claimed millions of people were about to die from COVID-19 in the United States, took to claiming that there was a mass ventilator shortage in the United States. Governors across the country were now demanding ventilators by the boatload.
"We literally have people shopping in China for ventilators."

As Jordan goes on to report:
By May, it was common knowledge in the medical community that early ventilator use was hurting, not helping COVID-19 patients, and that less invasive measures were in fact very effective in assisting recoveries. However, by then, the damage had already been done.
The “damage” being, God-only-knows how many people with moderate COVID-19 symptoms whose chances of succumbing were virtually non-existent needlessly dying a miserable and degrading drugged-up death with a highly invasive breathing tube crammed down their throat.
There’s a lot more to this monstrous scandal and I don’t want to spoil all the hard work Jordan surely must have put in. So I’ll let you read the rest of his appalling report on your own.
But the upshot is—to add insult to the most heinous of possible injuries—since anyone dying within 60 days of being diagnosed with COVID-19 automatically gets counted among its fatalities…
Just a reminder that anyone dying 60 days after a positive COVID PCR test gets included in the death stats.
Even if they were kiled in a car crash.
Stop quoting the official death count. It's garbage.https://t.co/7HQU3FAPvU pic.twitter.com/C3CfEUdQPo

…countless folks who were killed in probably the worst case of systematic medical malpractice in all of history wound up being used to further inflate the virus’s already massively inflated death toll and justify imposing even more needlessly destructive and degrading measures on those of us fortunate enough to have avoided their sad and sorry fate.
I wish I could tell you how many. But, like the preposterously loose criteria being used to count COVID-19 deaths in general, no one in charge seems to give a damn about finding out the truth as to—in this case—how many deaths on the virus’s inflated roster were, in reality, caused by needlessly subjecting the decedent to a ventilator.
This is all bad enough by itself, of course. But it also casts quite a different light on much of the alarming news about the virus with which we’ve found ourselves bombarded these past ten months.
We’ve been treated to all kinds of frightening reports attributing to it the most gruesome, deadly, and completely unprecedented symptoms; even though it’s just one of a family of well-known respiratory viruses.
We’ve been told that SARS-CoV-2 causes “multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children.”
Heck, the New York Times wants you to believe you’re in danger of developing something called COVID Brain Fog.
U forgot COVID BRAIN FOG; the fog of COVID that covers ur brain. Guy in NYT pic is plugging ear so it won't leak out & get others
And if we're worrying about stuff from media written at an 8th-grade level that 10 min of research shows is total BS, Iraqi WMDs might get us too. pic.twitter.com/KP06p3cDma

Of course, they never report whether any of these symptoms are occurring more often than in any other year.
Nor—as with all those alleged COVID-19 fatalities—do they ever consider that the scientifically-established devastating effects prolonged fear and isolation have on our immune systems together with subjecting the entire world to exactly that 24/7 might be a factor.
But, even putting aside such all-too-ubiquitous COVID-19 sins of omission, most will undoubtedly be surprised to learn that no causal link between the virus’s genome and these or any other of the wide array of symptoms attributed to it has ever been shown.
The only concrete reason to think any of the symptoms being pinned on SARS-CoV-2 were really caused by it at all is, literally, that some folks diagnosed with it happened to develop them.
Regular readers of my column will smell an additional rat here. As I first reported way back on September 3, the standard tests used to detect the virus don’t do any such thing. In reality, a couple of tiny dead fragments alleged to be unique to SARS-CoV-2 are chosen and your saliva or mucus subjected to a process that—assuming CDC guidelines are followed—multiplies the amount over a trillion times so there’s enough to be detected.
But tiny dead fragments of SARS-CoV-2 could wind up in your mucus or saliva in countless ways that have nothing to do with you being infected—indeed, believe it or not, a positive COVID test might mean the exact opposite!
Maybe you were infected but fully recovered days, or weeks, or even months ago and, far from being sick, now have immunity to the virus.
The CDC itself has noted:
[R]ecovered patients can continue to have [the COVID-19 virus’s] RNA detected in their upper respiratory specimens for up to 12 weeks after the onset of symptoms.
The actual “live” virus, on the other hand, is no longer present by “3 weeks after symptom onset.”
It could even be that those tiny SARS-CoV-2 fragments being multiplied over a trillion times belonged to one of the hundreds of trillions of viruses that are always roaming around your system without ever rising to the level of infection.
Heck, given that the viral remains are getting multiplied over a trillion times, maybe some dead fragments were among the God-only-knows how many microscopic entities that were nestled in that sandwich you ate a few hours before getting tested or simply were suspended in the air you breathed while walking through the medical facility’s front door.
And these aren’t just idle theoretical worries, either.
Even the New York Times reported that as many as 90% of positive COVID-19 test results should have come back negative. And, as I noted in that September column, the true number turns out to be even higher. The fact is that virtually 100% of those who’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19 had either already beaten the infection or never were infected to begin with.
In other words, all the terrifying stats we’ve been fed as well as the attribution of any terrifying symptoms to SARS-CoV-2 rest on a foundation of complete garbage.
But—as always seems to be the case when the subject is COVID-19—the situation is even vastly more scandalous than that.
You see, dear reader, it turns out that none of the labs claiming to have isolated SARS-CoV-2 has actually succeeded in getting it to cause damage in human tissue. The pestilential scourge of mankind causing all those awful unheard-of gruesome and deadly symptoms somehow seems to only want to harm monkey kidney cells when anybody’s actually looking.
Maybe one of these new strains will be shown to actually damage human cells. Because oddly enough so far no one has gotten SARS-CoV-2 to harm anything except monkey kidney cells or shown how it can possibly cause any of its long list of purported symptoms. https://t.co/KkA5lZyoKc pic.twitter.com/Oy6KlDdoR8

So it isn’t just that—contrary to the impression you’ve probably formed—no research has explained how the virus could cause any of the wide array of symptoms attributed to it.
What the research has shown makes it tough to see how it could really be causing any of them.
Bad enough, to be sure.
But it also turns out that our hospitals blindly followed advice from China they knew to be deadly and thereby wound up needlessly killing countless of our fellow citizens. And, not only are they not fessing up to this most heinous of crimes… they’re actually attributing all those deaths to the virus itself.
Imagine you walk into a room and see a known murderer standing over a dead body, holding a smoking gun, and the first thing out of his mouth is, “I rushed in to help after hearing a shot and saw some other guy leave through the window and drop this gun!”
Because that’s pretty much the position you’re in when the medical establishment and media start hyping some new and unprecedented gruesome reason you need to live in abject fear of COVID-19.
