Virology 101: Disease has a cycle of rising till it peaks then it tapers off. COVID19 follows this pattern for 6-8 weeks so this idea to flatten the curve is actually a fallacy because what we're doing from lockdowns to wearing face masks isn't affecting it. Scientists are finding that 5-15% of the people will get COVID19, that most of the people will never know they have it, most people are exposed to it, and we shouldn't be as frightened of it as the mainstream media is pushing on us. - Leslie Manookian


Is COVID19 a plandemic when we look at the real numbers and science?

What would happen if we all stopped buying into the projections, hype, and fear the mainstream media is feeding us?

[13:00] What Is Really Going On With COVID19

  • Covid-19 — Navigating the Uncharted by Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., H. Clifford Lane, M.D., and Robert R. Redfield, M.D.
  • Where the COVID19 death rate models from 3 to 8% came from including the United Kingdom's Imperial College of London which took about $134 million from the Gates Foundation in the last few years.
  • COVID-19: Imperial researchers model likely impact of public health measures
  • COVID19 death rate numbers (1.7 million people) that came from the Institute of Health Metrics and Valuation of the University of Washington in Bill Gates' hometown of Seattle which received a grant from him of around $229 million or above in 2017.
  • The fact that The Gates Foundation has been funding the media for a very long time and Bill Gates has used past monopolistic practices to push out any competitors. (16:00)
  • Funding by The Gates Foundation to as much as $1 billion to the media and $550 million in the WHO Foundation.


[19:30]  Is COVID19 A Plandemic or Pandemic?

  • How it is said that 50% of people in the UK have already had it but those people have no idea because 80% of people in community and family settings have been exposed and developed antibodies against the virus.
  • The fact t virology 101 tells us that viruses mutate once they begin infecting people and COVID19 has dropped 81 letters in its genetic sequence just like SARS did 17 years ago so it's naturally weakening itself already.
  • Why COVID19 isn't dangerous to the vast majority of people when you look at who it's truly affecting; those already at risk to the flu: nursing home residents and those who have already received a flu vaccination.
  • The mass confusion that the media is creating by contradicting themselves and oversaturating the public with information constantly.
  • Exploring exactly when COVID19 hit the USA. Was it as early as September 2019?
  • Why it's actually good news that the coronavirus is highly contagious because then millions have people have had it and very few people have died. (23:00)
  • Unpacking flu statistics including the very low number of people who have actually died from it in recent years.
  • Comparing COVID19 deaths to the number from other causes such as accidents, heart attacks, domestic violence, and suicide.


[25:00] To Wear A Face Mask Or Not

  • Explaining the seven types of coronavirus that specifically affect humans.
  • Other types of coronaviruses we've known about for decades: the common cold, SARS, and MERS.
  • Why the numbers and stats around viruses are already always scary but a virus will always mutate and weaken just like the coronavirus is doing already.
  • Exploring the two pieces that are used most in fear propagation are face masks and asymptomatic people who might give someone COVID19 without being aware of it.
  • Why the government is pushing decisions from face masks to lockdowns as if the people are not responsible enough to make decisions. (28:00)
  • Comparing distance guidelines between CDC which recommends 6 feet and WHO which says 3 feet when COVID19 is not airborne like smallpox and tuberculosis, only the actual droplets are contagious.
  • Explaining why wearing a face mask actually isn't good for a healthy person. (24:30)
  • Can A Mask Really Keep Us Safe?
  • The psychological implications of wearing face masks and seeing others wearing them.
  • How people are symbolically being gagged, silenced, and forced into submission by wearing a mask.
  • Asking the question: Why aren't politicians or those in the media wearing face masks themselves when they are telling us that we should be doing that?
  • Reasons why she herself will not nor ever wear a mask from health concerns to being the owner of her body and life.


[34:00] Clarity On Asymptomatic & COVID19 Testing

  • The big picture of our microbiome and that as long as 80% of our bugs are good, they keep out and in check the 20% bad ones.
  • Unpacking the fact that 1/3 of us are carrying staph in the back of our noses and on our skin yet we're not in fear of it nor in lockdown because of it.
  • Why healthy people are not having a problem with COVID19 in compared to others such as the 94% in hospitals in New York City and 99% worldwide that had a comorbidity or underlying condition.
  • How coming into contact with people and things like door handles in public actually give our immunity a boost.
  • The different tests being used in respect for COVID19: PCR and antibody plus whether they are efficient or not in diagnosing people. (38:00)
  • Why the creator of the PCR test, Kary Mullis, stated that it should not be used for diagnosing people with COVID19.
  • Kary Mullis
  • The fact that there is no concrete, 'Hallmark' symptoms with COVID19 compared to something like measles where everyone gets a rash.
  • Where COVID19 testing went wrong and what they should have done and should be doing instead.
  • Why the Cleveland Clinic is not using an antibody test for COVID19 because this virus, like the common cold, is ubiquitous and therefore the COVID19 antibodies are already present in high numbers.

[45:00] Mass Media Manipulation In COVID19 Coverage


[52:30] Why Do Political and Other Authorities Suppress Free Speech?


[1:02:00] The Real Truth About Flattening The Curve

  • Other aspects of health suggestions from the government that people might not trust including nutrition, holistic health, acupuncture, and essential oils.
  • Explaining The Flexner Report which was a Carnegie and Rockefeller funded exercise to discredit natural healing modalities that existed to pave the way for the chemical-based medical paradigm that we now live with.

  • Ramifications from suicide to bankruptcy due to COVID19.
  • Mark Armstrong's economic models for everything in life from climate to disease to economies to political systems.
  • The incredible amount of people that are and will be out work due to COVID19 and why many cannot even apply for unemployment help because they are working part-time jobs to get by.
  • How it took 3 years to get to 25% unemployment in the US during the Great Depression but it only took 7 weeks now because of COVID19.
  • Why coronavirus vaccines are incredibly dangerous and what we've learned about them from SARS vaccine animal testing.
  • The frightening possible consequences of the FDA permitting fast-tracking the coronavirus vaccine without even doing animal testing first.
  • Why there is power in asking questions, digging deeper, and doing your own research rather than relying on the mass mainstream media.

Power Quotes From The Show


Dr. Fauci's COVID19 New England Journal of Medicine Statement

"..the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS.” - Dr. Fauci, The New England Journal of Medicine


Health Freedom

"We all want to be happy and feel safe but when somebody says that the institutions that we trust and rely on to keep us safe and protect us aren't doing that, that's terrifying. These things that we're talking about, shake us to our core because if we can't trust these agencies and institutions with the health and wellbeing of our babies, we have to accept on some level, that we can't trust anybody, right? That's scary that we have to do our own research and that we are responsible, but that's also super empowering because it means you're free." - Leslie Manookian

Why Is Actual COVID19 Research Being Suppressed?


"I invite people to dig deeper than the mainstream media. Ask questions, start to take a step back and see how the mainstream media platforms are contradicting themselves and what effect that has on you. How does it feel when you're confused or when someone tells you that millions of people are going to die from COVID19 and ask yourself why is the data and the science that show this is no more dangerous than the flu being taken off of YouTube, Facebook, and suppressed by Google?" - Leslie Manookian
