Six Covid ‘Conspiracy Theories’ That Came True

9 March 2022

Now that war has eclipsed Covid in the news cycle, consider six Covid ‘conspiracy theories’ that have come true in recent months. Read on for a list of embarrassing failures that the ‘expert class’ hopes we forget.

The pandemic is wrapping up for now and the global news cycle is now dominated by war with Russia and associated fears of food and fuel shortages. In the inertia of it all, you may have missed some of the latest stark admissions from the ‘expert class’ about all things Covid. So here’s a quick round-up.

1. Adverse reactions are underreported

Adverse reactions to the Covid-19 vaccines have been largely downplayed by health authorities over the last year. However, this has begun to change as more data on vaccine injuries is collected.

In a survey published by the Israeli Ministry of Health last month, a staggering 66% of the 2,049 respondents reported adverse reactions to their Covid-19 booster jab. Conducted by phone within 3-4 weeks of the third dose, the survey uncovered some alarming data, including:

  • a worsening of pre-existing diseases like anxiety and autoimmune disorders among 25% of relevant respondents
  • almost 10% of women (under age 54) reporting menstrual irregularities, with a third of these seeking medical treatment for the issue
  • almost 5% of respondents reporting one or more of ten neurological adverse events, including Bell’s Palsy, blurred vision, convulsions and involuntary movements

A German health insurance company, BKK ProVita, has also recently warned of a concerning ‘alarm signal’ in their data regarding adverse reactions to Covid-19 vaccines. Of their 10.9 million clients, 217,000 have received treatment for vaccine side effects. This represents over 10 times as many adverse reactions as detected by the German federal agency tracking vaccine injury data.

2. Vaccine mandates were driven by excessive optimism

Vaccine mandates have were an ethical minefield from the outset. The Daily Declaration warned of this repeatedly during 2021, especially since research on the available vaccines was — and still is — ongoing.

Just this month, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, whose organisation strongly influenced vaccine mandate policy in the US and globally, admitted what many of us had intuited from the beginning. “So many of us wanted to be helpful,” she said of her early enthusiasm about the Pfizer vaccine. She continued:

So many of us wanted to say, “Okay, this is our ticket out, right, now we’re done.” So I think we had perhaps too little caution and too much optimism for some good things that came our way. I really do. I think all of us wanted this to be done. Nobody said waning — “Oh this vaccine is going to work, oh well, maybe it’ll wear off.” Nobody said, “Well, what if the next variant, it’s not as [effective] against the next variant.”

We now know that the vaccines don’t have a meaningful impact on either infection or transmission, and its benefits against disease and death wane after just months. All of this was predicted by dissenting experts who were systematically smeared and censored.

Meanwhile, countless millions lost their jobs, livelihoods and careers for standing up to unethical mandates that are now being abandoned — even in hold-out nations like Australia and New Zealand.

3. The Covid virus contains a lab-made DNA sequence: study

Those speculating that SARS-CoV-2 leaked from a lab rather than coming from bats sold in Wuhan’s wet markets were originally laughed off as conspiracy theorists. In time, however, the lab leak theory has gained at least as much credibility as the idea that the virus arose naturally.

A study released last month has only further fuelled the lab leak theory. Scientists publishing in Frontiers in Virology found a 19-letter sequence of genetic code in the virus that was patented by biotechnology firm Moderna three years before the pandemic began.

The researchers argue that there is a one in three trillion chance that this section of code could have arisen by chance to mimic the Moderna-owned sequence. (Note that critics of the study believe the finding to be a ‘quirky’ coincidence and not a ‘smoking gun’).

4. Vaccine mRNA enters cells and is converted to DNA: study

In the early days of the mRNA vaccines, health agencies assured the public that this newly-applied technology could not enter the nucleus of human cells. Instead, we were assured, the mRNA would be discarded by the body after it has produced an immune response. (See, for example, these factsheets from the CDC and the Australian Government’s Department of Health).

But a new study by Swedish researchers at Lund University suggests that the mRNA from Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is able to enter human liver cells and is in fact converted into DNA. According to a summary of the findings by the Epoch Times,

The researchers found that when the mRNA vaccine enters the human liver cells, it triggers the cell’s DNA, which is inside the nucleus, to increase the production of the LINE-1 gene expression to make mRNA.

The mRNA then leaves the nucleus and enters the cell’s cytoplasm, where it translates into LINE-1 protein. A segment of the protein called the open reading frame-1, or ORF-1, then goes back into the nucleus, where it attaches to the vaccine’s mRNA and reverse transcribes into spike DNA.

While the study found spike DNA in the nucleus of human cells, the research did not determine that the spike DNA integrates into the human genome. Note that independent experts have contested the study’s findings – see here.

5. mRNA vaccines are gene therapy: Bayer executive

So-called fact-checkers likewise scrambled over one another to deny that mRNA vaccines are a type of ‘gene therapy’. (See these pieces by Reuters, Lead Stories, Forbes, WebMD and Politifact). More recently, the president of Bayer’s pharmaceuticals division made a speech in which he said that “Ultimately, the mRNA vaccines are an example for that cell and gene therapy”. 

Speaking at the World Health Summit in October last year, Stefan Oelrich said that Bayer, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, is “really taking that leap… in cell and gene therapy”.

He added that “if we had surveyed two years ago in the public — ‘would you be willing to take gene or cell therapy and inject it into your body?’ — we probably would have had a 95 percent refusal rate.”

6. Natural immunity is on par with vaccine immunity

Despite being demonised and dismissed during much of the pandemic, immunity gained from Covid-19 is now widely recognised as superior to vaccine-induced immunity alone. Sadly, some governments and industries are yet to acknowledge this by revoking discriminatory policies, but the studies are clear.

According to a recent piece from leading medical news site Medscape, “Antibodies derived from natural infection with COVID-19 are more abundant and more potent – at least 10 times more potent – than immunity generated by vaccination alone”.

Titled ‘Why Are We Ignoring Infection-Acquired Immunity?’ and summarising an array of studies, the piece argued that those who have recovered from the disease should be exempt from vaccine requirements. While remaining positive about vaccines generally, Medscape urged caution about boosters and questioned the ethics of vaccine mandates.

What our betters hope you forget

So many decisions that were made throughout the pandemic were illogical on their face. Ironically, those brave enough to point out the obvious were slandered and ostracised by polite society. For a depressingly entertaining list of these outrages, see the Twitter thread below, followed by a sample of the worst examples.

Recall that:

  • Residents in NSW hotspots were granted just one hour of exercise a day.
  • Covid restrictions prompted a NSW council to shoot dead several rescue dogs.
  • Police banned aircraft from Melbourne’s skies to prevent reporting on anti-mandate protests where police shot at and assaulted unarmed protesters.
  • Military officials in Canada confessed to using propaganda on citizens to coerce compliance with Covid restrictions.
  • NSW police advised that visiting the grave of a loved one was not considered a reasonable excuse to leave home during lockdown.
  • Covid-19 vaccines created nine new Big Pharma billionaires. If you include Covid-19 testing and protective equipment, that number climbs to 40.

Forgive, but never forget. What has taken place over the last two years must never be allowed to happen again.

    It is great to read the truth regarding vaccines from a leader in our nation. It has been hard to stand up against these lies & control. We pray that our health department comes clean.

      I didn’t make the claims that are debunked by the fact check you have provided.

      Except I quoted Oelrich verbatim and that’s literally what he said. The context doesn’t refute his words.

      I disagree with you.
      Item 5 is correct. The link you supplied was one of the worst attempts of refuting a claim I have ever read.

      As for this article by Kurt, it would appear you agree that the other Conspiracy Theories were actually true.
      Good to see we have common ground

    yes forgive is the optimal word, don’t harbour resentments, that is not true forgiveness!

    Great work mate.
    Some day we pray that the whole truth will come out.

    Thx. for this article as it’s so refreshing & liberating to have realistic reporting of factual account of what has recently transpired in comparison to what the masses have been fed with by msm.. And at least this type of factual account opposes the effects of mass formation psychosis!

    Thanks Kurt. More truth needs to go out to more Australian as this important matter that affects their health. I been forwarding your article to my circle family and friends.

    Thanks Kurtt and there is more evidence forthcoming

    Thanks Kurt

    Excellent article. The truth needs to come out. Now what about the millions who have been betrayed and punished by their Govt, medical professionals and employers etc. and have suffered real losses that will last a lifetime, because they questioned the mandates? Will they ever be compensated or restored ? They should be, and these perpetrators should be punished.

    I agree with Lee Davy that we must forgive and let God recompense, which releases us from the anger, but let us not forget and let these types of things be done by these same types of evil people, lest history repeat yet again.
