The controversies surrounding vaccines and viruses, in particular the new coronavirus, just keep on coming. However, without whistleblowers, we may be at risk of the rich and powerful doing more harm than is otherwise possible. One whistle-blower is Dr. Judy A. Mikovits, a researcher who has previously been painted as a fraud for her research on chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
More recently, she has published a second book, Plague of Corruption, and begun to speak up about the coronavirus pandemic. Her most widely-circulated interview is currently the first segment of the upcoming documentary, PlanDemic. This video is repeatedly being taken down by social media giants under the pretext of spreading “misinformation.” But people are eager to hear what Dr. Mikovits has to say. Instead of being baseless, she does have compromising evidence to back up her claims.
Judy Mikovits And The Origins Of Chronic Fatigue
In 2006, Mikovits joined efforts to find the cause of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). It became an epidemic in the 1980s, but the mostly-female sufferers were written off as fragile “yuppies” who couldn’t handle their corporate careers. She found that two-thirds of women with CFS carried Xenotropic Murine Leukemia Virus (XMLV), compared to four percent of healthy women.
This virus was revealed to be infectious and able to be passed onto immune cells. However, this 2009 study was retracted because some blood samples were allegedly contaminated with XMLV plasmids. Poor quality control, missing information on blood sample processing, and failure of other laboratories to find XMLV were cited as other reasons for retraction. Some theorize that XMRV was generated by prostate cancer cell lines from two pro-viruses found in mice, and has contaminated other samples.
Other research not involving Mikovits found that XMLV can infect human cells, and did not uncover other mice-derived sequences. The most likely mode of transmission that the authors describe is vaccines cultured in mice tissue. Until recent years, these included certain rabies, yellow fever, and Japanese encephalitis vaccines. Endogenous retroviruses cannot be removed from vaccines, and viral contamination is known to be a problem in their manufacturing.
As Dr. Mikovits explains in her 2009 study, they can impair our immune systems, with XMLV affecting the response against viruses. Some of them may be linked to other serious illnesses such as cancer.
Who Are The Real Criminals?
In November 2011, Judy Mikovits was jailed for her research on CFS, accused of stealing notebooks and files from her employer. However, the charges were dropped in 2012 after one of her employers was indicted for illegal campaign contributions and lying to FBI agents.
As she explains in her PlanDemic interview, there was no warrant for her arrest. Her husband was threatened by the authorities and pressured to find the notebooks that they alleged were hidden at the couple’s residence. Dr. Judy’s case was placed under seal so she could not get a lawyer. Mikovits was also placed under a gag order for four years. According to her, any attempts to speak up on social media would have likely resulted in fines or jail time.
While Judy Mikovits was punished for her findings, others profited. Soon after the publication of her now-retracted paper, she was approached by the Cerus Corporation. They had developed a system of removing viruses from donated blood. The system was called the Cerus INTERCEPT System. This attaches a molecule to the DNA or RNA of pathogens, which prevents them from reproducing once they are exposed to ultraviolet light.
Two studies that Mikovits worked on with Cerus involved the detection and removal of XMLV. Not only was the Oakland blood supply contaminated, but she spiked blood with the virus to show that the INTERCEPT System could remove it. Dr. Mikovits was vilified. Cerus, on the other hand, enjoyed multi-million dollar profits from sales of their system.
The Coronavirus May Not Be Acting Alone
Judy Mikovits’ whistleblowing doesn’t stop at CFS. Recently, she has begun to speak up about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. As she explains in a video taken down multiple times but reviewed here, COVID-19 appears to affect red and white blood cells.This is uncharacteristic of its viral family. One theory suggests that COVID-19 attacks hemoglobin, with higher hemoglobin levels linked to more inflammation.
A large proportion of COVID-19 infections are asymptomatic, so it’s worth looking at other contributing causes of complications. The XLMV retrovirus may be just the partner in crime needed to turn mild infections into deadly ones.
In a study comparing the blood of XMLV-affected CFS patients and healthy controls, Dr. Mikovits found a distinct inflammatory signature of XMLV, including suppression of interferon-alpha. Those who are most vulnerable to complications, according to Mikovits, are more prone to inflammation and immune dysregulation as they have less efficient type I interferon pathways. Interferon-alpha is within the type I category. People who produce lower levels of type I interferon are more vulnerable to SARS infections too.
This may explain the unusual symptoms of COVID-19. As Mikovits explains, other coronaviruses don’t cause clotting disorders, but retroviruses such as HIV do. Serious infections are presenting with blood clots throughout the body, including the kidneys, liver, lungs, and brain. Fortunately, treatment with blood thinners is improving survival rates of patients on ventilators, from 37 percent to 71 percent in one study. As some research finds a 90 percent mortality rate among those on ventilators, we desperately need better treatment options.
Other Causes Of Serious Covid-19 Infections
In PlanDemic, Mikovits adds that exposure to 5G may damage red blood cells, lowering oxygen levels and “throwing gasoline on the fire” of inflammation. While it doesn’t describe the degradation of hemoglobin, a translated Russian paper mentions lowered counts of red and white blood cells, as well as hemoglobin, after EMF exposure.
This contributes to the runaway inflammatory process known as a cytokine storm that is behind deaths linked to COVID-19. Dr. Mikovits lists glutathione deficiency caused by factors such as glyphosate as another potential contributor to severe cases, but this is only one of its many inflammatory effects.
As for a connection between COVID-19 and vaccines, Mikovits adds that it is most likely the same problem as in CFS. Culturing animal tissue that may contain other viruses and introducing them into the human body can “cause the epidemics … they accelerate the evolution of new viruses,” as Mikovits puts it.
During the 2019/2020 flu season, countries including Italy and the USA received a four-strain new form of influenza vaccine. The vaccine was grown in dog kidney cell lines, and dogs can carry coronaviruses. “If you’ve had a flu vaccine, you were injected with coronaviruses,” states Mikovits.
Is The Coronavirus Outbreak Exaggerated?
Judy Mikovits does not claim that the COVID-19 pandemic is no big deal. Her theory on where it came from is: “This family of viruses was manipulated and studied in a laboratory … If it was a natural occurrence, it would take up to 800 years to occur.” She adds that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) gave over $3 million to the Wuhan lab linked to this pandemic. It is, in fact, publicly recorded that the U.S. and China have been collaborating on coronavirus research, in an effort to understand SARS and MERS.
However, she does not agree that lockdowns are the best solution, saying “Why would you close the beach? You’ve got healing microbes in the ocean, in the saltwater … that’s insanity.” Studies do show that exposure to seawater helps modulate the immune system, and a bacterial species in soil produces anti-inflammatory fatty acids. She is also against the push to receive a flu shot, which increases the risk of coronavirus infections by 36 percent.
Additionally, COVID-19 mortality rates may be overstated by including people who died with, not from, the virus. The PlanDemic interview cuts to Deborah Birx saying on television that “We’ve taken a very liberal approach to mortality … If someone dies with COVID-19 we’re counting it.”
In fact, the CDC’s guidelines on death certificates state that “In cases where a definite diagnosis of Covid–19 cannot be made, but it is suspected or likely (e.g., the circumstances are compelling within a reasonable degree of certainty), it is acceptable to report Covid–19 on a death certificate as ‘probable’ or ‘presumed.'” This could mean doctors are incentivized to list deaths as coronavirus-related. Mainstream fact-checkers also confirm extra payments for coronavirus cases, especially if they are placed on ventilators.
Is Hydroxychloroquine Effective?
Judy Mikovits states her support for hydroxychloroquine in the PlanDemic interview, a widely used treatment among doctors answering an international survey. It has been on the WHO’s essential medicine list for 70 years and costs 50 cents per dose. At that price, a $600 vial can protect 1000 people for a week.
Mikovits suggests that the goal of suppressing natural therapies and old drugs may be to increase the demand for vaccines and new, expensive drugs. However, the largest trial on hydroxychloroquine to date shows no benefit over placebo. Smaller studies and lab research do show benefits of hydroxychloroquine. However, these studies needs to be administered as soon after symptom onset as possible to build up in tissues. The larger trial gave hydroxychloroquine to most patients within 48 hours of their admission to the hospital, which may indicate a delay.
Judy Mikovits has certainly made waves from her return as a whistle-blower. While the mainstream media paints her entirely as a fraud, some digging through academic research and news reports does support many of her statements in the PlanDemic interview. As with everything else, it’s important to do your own research, and not blindly trust authorities who may censor information.
