THINK for Yourselves and Ask Questions!

I was sent this article by the author, who wrote it for her (probably closing) Pennsylvania Community Newspaper, where she is/was had regular column called “Lisa’s Rants and Raves” since 2006.. As she pointed out to me, for any readers there, it may be the only exposure they have to the non-government narrative about the current scam (which was the reason she wrote it). She was unsure whether it would be accepted for publication – but it was. (And Lisa was as fed up of hearing about it as the rest of us).


THINK for Yourselves and Ask Questions!

By Lisa Houserman (

This week I’m going to take the opportunity to remind people that the corporate media, which has now filtered down into the alternative media, is an arm of huge pharmaceutical companies and other major corporate outlets. The last time I checked, all “news” received 90% of their funding from such entities. 

Do not take my word for this, simply do something that I never recommend. Shuffle over to that box that generally dominates all homes, and switch it on.  Bring a piece of paper and a writing implement along in order to keep track of how many commercials pertain to sinus medication, pain relief, prescription drugs, “bedroom situations,” ADHD drugs, vaccines, etc., etc., blah, blah, wash, rinse and repeat.

 If you are able to keep a full head of hair and have refrained from slashing your wrists with the nearest butter knife after the hour is up, tally up the ads.  (I gave up TV for Lent years ago but unfortunately am still exposed to its evil plot since Perpetual is hooked on it.  Hey, they don’t call it TELL “LIE” VISION PROGRAMMING for nothing—look, I know it’s not spelled that way. Allow me some humor during our time of distress.)

Also, when viewing what passes as “news” these days, see if they offer a platform to scientists or “experts” with different findings that go against the mainstream talking points.  See how many times a “journalist” asks combative questions of “scientific experts” like Bill Nye.  (This actor is a total encyclopedia of knowledge on everything under the sun!)  A scientist of any kind says something and it’s taken as gospel.  I used to become LIVID when someone would claim that science had morphed into a religion but now, I tend to agree.  (I’m willing to reexamine most anything I’ve ever been told by an authority, which helps a lot.)

Getting back to the PIC (Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex) for a moment or 87, do not clutch pearls and assume that I think every doctor or pharmacist is out to get us.  These everyday casual people making a living are going by what they were taught.  They are not hideous creatures who plot with others in order to murder us or anything of the sort.  I speak not of Uncle Bob the country doc or of Phil the Pharmacist so stop taking things so personally right now please!  This is no time for “snowflakeism.”

I’m talking about those at the very top of this cartel and yes, it is a cartel.  There is a revolving door between the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and PIC (see above) with the WHO—not the rock band from England but World Health Organization—thrown in for good measure, and a pinch of the good old FDA for added flavor.  That, my darling friends, is a recipe alright, but for disaster if you ask me—and you didn’t. 

You can find this information yourselves by carrying out research whilst the police state and “government experts” force us into “lock-down” because they care so deeply for us! They care about people losing their homes due to medical bills.  They are very concerned over the homeless population.  They are super upset about the poisoned water in Flint Michigan and around 3,000 other cities and towns. THEY LOVE YOU! (I hope by now you get the sarcasm. Oh, also as of 2016 ‘medical errors’ was listed as the third leading cause of death here in the US of A.)

Whilst doing said research, keep in mind that you will have to step outside of your comfort zones.  You will more than likely have to ascertain from whom the funding of your sources comes. You will have to recognize that this same PIC funds university studies.  This is not easy and it is time consuming. (Another reason why people don’t look into things is because time does not permit them to do so.  They work 17 jobs in order to have any sense of a life and are bombarded with mainstream talking points even whilst trying desperately to avoid them.)

Your world might just be rocked when you are finished.  You have to really dig further than a “Google” search might allow and avoid the now infamous “Wikipedia.”  Google is also “in bed” with the others as it is a YUGE conglomerate that can list mainstream searches at the very top, for instance.  We live in a corporation, ladies and gentlemen, and it’s time we awakened to it.

With all of that being said, do you honestly think that differing views about the insanity going on around us would be permitted to air on any TV outlet?  Also, the AP is responsible for what a lot of people see in print.  It takes very few to “rule the world” as the saying goes.  Not everyone is “in on it,” either.  Sometimes when people speak like I am currently, the person listening or reading automatically assumes that the speaker is saying that it’s a BIG conspiracy.  That is simply not true.

I want people to stop being terrified because panic clouds the judgment of human beings and causes illness. It also prevents people from asking questions that should be posed during any alleged crisis. Fear is the virus that can damage us.  I will spur you along those lines of questioning here in a minute and will then offer you some dissenting views as put forth by scientists who are NOT pushing the fear and isolation narrative.  

When we hear of “cases” what does that mean?  12 more “cases” of The Plague were reported in City Z.  So that means that a person has this “thing” in them, but does it necessarily mean he/she is going to keel over dead? 

Are the tests accurate?  Can they test for viral load?  Who is the manufacturer of the test? How many false positives?  Did they do the blind study?  Is this plague able to be pinpointed or are they testing for just any “version” of it?  Who profits from this test? What were other factors environmentally speaking that were in play in China and in Italy at the time that this came to light?  Is it possible that we all have “doodads” in our bodies so all who are tested might come up positive?  Why are we being told to trust our leaders?  How does The Plague recognize the distance of six feet?  How does it tell if 2 or more are gathered? Are state lines taken into consideration by said plague?  What do doctors and others see when they look under a microscope at a virus?  Why are people who question vaccines called “anti-vaxxers” in a

derogatory manner? Is there a high risk of death from this? If we never heard of it, would it be a huge deal or pretty standard operating procedure? Could the medicines that are given during treatment lead to death?

Here is a big question pertaining to those who question vaccines and don’t want to be forced into being jabbed.  Is it possible that people who call others “anti-vaxxers,” have received their worldview from an agency, “news” outlet or university study that traces its funding back to PIC? Just food for thought is all.  Remember the old adage, “follow the money,” is more germane today than ever before.  (I’ve always wanted to use “germane” and find it to be appropriate to do so at this time.  It’s due to the “germ” part of the word. Get it?)

Now before I go further, I want to remind you of something that unfolded in 2009 when the Swine Flu was the virus du jour.  A reporter named Sharyl Attkisson from CBS uncovered the fact that the CDC, which is a for profit corporation by the way, stopped counting cases.  Here is a snippet from her report which I trust you can find: “In late July, the CDC abruptly advised states to stop testing for H1N1 flu and stopped counting individual cases. The rationale given for the CDC guidance to forego testing and tracking individual cases was: ‘why waste resources testing for H1N1 flu when the government has already confirmed there’s an epidemic?’”

Back to present day happenings now:  Do you not find it a bit suspicious that this is dominating the “news” 48 hours a day?  I am highly suspicious of such shenanigans but then again, I kinda got a bit upset when I found out that there were no weapons of mass destruction or that “we” entered the Vietnam “conflict” for bogus reasons, to name two.  The whole “Russia hacked the election” was another load of male bovine excrement which I mentioned in real time, if you recall.  Mainstream is still using this talking point.  How many times have false talking points made it into our official history? 

I am now going to provide you with a few medical experts whose opinions on this “thang” are different than the official  pharmaceutical backed talking points, charts, graphs, press releases, etc., that most have seen over the past few weeks. 

I’m going to give portions of the statements here due to space limitations. I will also switch the “Across-The-Pond” spellings of certain words like “realise” to realize. I will also provide you with a link to the full articles at the end of this.  Remember, these gents are risking careers by stepping outside of the talking points to bring some sanity to the conversation. You will NOT see them on CNN, FAUX, MSDNC, or any other outlet booming from the box in your home, for reasons which should be obvious to people by now.  

I’m not super tremendous at technical writing or copy and pasting methods involving quotes within quotes, etc., so please just keep that in mind.  Also, some of the quotes are from a few weeks ago; they aren’t up to date in terms of the numbers being told to us by elite news anchors and members of society, like Bill Gates. Give me a break on him please, but I digress.  (Keep in mind that Bill Gates was super friendly with Jeffery Epstein which is easy to research. 

Thinking that any of these elitists are worried for our wellbeing is plain silly. This goes for Holly WEIRD actors and such as well. Also, check out the “drill” that Gates and others ran about six weeks before this came to light. It’s called Event 201. I’m sick of “coincidence theorists.”) 

Dr Wolfgang Wodarg is a German physician specializing in Pulmonology, politician and former chairman of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. In 2009 he called for an inquiry into alleged conflicts of interest surrounding the EU response to the Swine Flu pandemic.  “Politicians are being courted by scientists…scientists who want to be important to get money for their institutions. Scientists who just swim along in the mainstream and want their part of it […] And what is missing right now is a rational way of looking at things. We should be asking questions like ‘How did you find out this virus was dangerous?’  ‘How was it before?’  ‘Didn’t we have the same thing last year?’  ‘Is it even something new?’”

Dr Sucharit Bhakdi is a specialist in microbiology. He was a professor at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz and head of the Institute for Medical Microbiology and Hygiene and one of the most cited research scientists in German history.  “We are afraid that 1 million infections with the new virus will lead to 30 deaths per day over the next 100 days. But we do not realize that 20, 30, 40 or 100 patients positive for normal Coronaviruses are already dying every day. [The government’s anti-COVID19 measures] are grotesque, absurd and very dangerous […] The life expectancy of millions is being shortened. The horrifying impact on the world economy threatens the existence of countless people. The consequences on medical care are profound. Already services to patients in need are reduced, operations canceled, practices empty, hospital personnel dwindling. All this will impact profoundly on our whole society. All these measures are leading to self-destruction and collective suicide based on nothing but a spook.”

Dr Peter Goetzsche is Professor of Clinical Research Design and Analysis at the University of Copenhagen and founder of the Cochrane Medical Collaboration. He has written several books on corruption in the field of medicine and the power of big pharmaceutical companies. “Our main problem is that no one will ever get in trouble for measures that are too draconian. They will only get in trouble if they do too little. So, our politicians and those working with public health do much more than they should do. No such draconian measures were applied during the 2009 influenza pandemic, and they obviously cannot be applied every winter, which is all year round, as it is always winter somewhere. We cannot close down the whole world permanently. Should it turn out that the epidemic wanes before long, there will be a queue of people wanting to take credit for this. And we can be damned sure draconian measures will be applied again next time. But remember the joke about tigers. “Why do you blow the horn?” “To keep the tigers away.” “But there are no tigers here.” “There you see!” Corona: an epidemic of mass panic”, blog post on Deadly Medicines 21st March 2020

Here is one more.  I wanted to at least get this much out there as I know some people who read this are not computer savvy at all.

Dr. David Katz is an American physician and founding director of the Yale University Prevention Research Center: “I am deeply concerned that the social, economic and public health consequences of this near-total meltdown of normal life — schools and businesses closed, gatherings banned — will be long-lasting and calamitous, possibly graver than the direct toll of the virus itself. The stock market will bounce back in time, but many businesses never will. The unemployment, impoverishment and despair likely to result will be public health scourges of the first order.” Is Our Fight Against Coronavirus Worse Than the Disease?”, New York Times 20th March 2020

I can’t resist another.  This guy’s credentials take up so much space that I am only going to put a snippet in for his quote. Like I said earlier, I shall provide a link that now has 22 (was originally 12) being brave enough to lose their jobs over offering another scientific view.

Dr John Ioannidis Professor of Medicine, of Health Research and Policy and of Biomedical Data Science, at Stanford University School of Medicine and a Professor of Statistics at Stanford

University School of Humanities and Sciences. He is director of the Stanford Prevention Research Center, and co-director of the Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS). He is also the editor-in-chief of the European Journal of Clinical Investigation. He was chairman at the Department of Hygiene and Epidemiology, University of Ioannina School of Medicine as well as adjunct professor at Tufts University School of Medicine. As a physician, scientist and author he has made contributions to evidence-based medicine, epidemiology, data science and clinical research. In addition, he pioneered the field of meta-research. He has shown that much of the published research does not meet good scientific standards of evidence. “If we had not known about a new virus out there, and had not checked individuals with PCR tests, the number of total deaths due to ‘influenza-like illness’ would not seem unusual this year. At most, we might have casually noted that flu this season seems to be a bit worse than average. A fiasco in the making? As the Coronavirus pandemic takes hold, we are making decisions without reliable data,’  Stat News, 17th March 2020

I was going to provide information from the actual agencies that shows how the tests are flawed.   However, I feel if you are so inclined to learn about this, it’s time I stop spoon feeding you. The article to which I will link you provides the footnote links to said agencies.  The reporter has been investigating this kind of thing since 1987.  For the test portion go to the first place noted in my parenthesis.  The other info about the scientists will be listed next to that.  (This is the most time-consuming column I’ve ever written.  I’ve had an easier time with college papers.) 

Keep in mind, I don’t know if info is from the fake left, fake right, fake center, borrowed, blue, old, new, etc. I do not care about the person allowing these scientists to speak out, in other words. I don’t care if the outlet is perceived to be “conspiratorial” or not.  (I honestly have no clue about the reputation of this particular one, by the by.  Many outlets have carried it.  I just picked this one out of the clear blue sky.) 

It’s the words of the scientists that count and NOT the person allowing the message!  After all, David is putting this column in here for me. He’s allowing me to plunk down this documented information so we can all be officially filled with anger now more than ever! Isn’t it great?  I do not give a fig if some alternative researcher thinks that he was born on the moon, if he has been totally correct about most everything else he has said in terms of the geopolitical scene. 

We all have different beliefs but if we are getting accurate info out there, that should be the part that counts.  This is another way that the mainstream poo poos anything from an alternative source: “Oh isn’t HE the guy who claims he was a time traveler or was abducted by aliens?” (Laughter fills the room.)  Did it ever occur to some that the “time traveler” maybe says this “weird stuff” to save his/her life? (I made up the time traveler stuff for effect or to illustrate a point.)  Most people in this reading region are Christians and I am not one.  Does that mean that I should disregard everything that a Christian might say to me pertaining to this or other “news” of the day?  NO, it does NOT!  Just because I might not follow the same religion, for this one example, doesn’t mean that I cannot garner information from him/her.  I hope this makes sense. I guess what I mean is we should stop shooting messengers in general.

We are all used to receiving info that has filtered down from this or that agency, politician, study, expert, think tank, etc.  The time is NOW to drop any notion of a good politician or talking head who truly cares for you.  I mentioned the reasons why they do not, somewhere else in this term paper—I mean column.  I used to absolutely believe everything I heard from an “official authority” or “source” so I’m not blaming anyone.  I simply accepted what I had been taught.  As I said WAY earlier, I am willing to reexamine everything I’ve ever been told.  I hope you are too.


P.S.  I said this earlier but will add to it at this time.  If you want to determine what is unfolding in the world at any given time, follow the money.  It works on a very consistent basis. Just one more thing that I’ve been saying for years…TURN OFF THE TV! Social media can take a hike as well! DROP your love for ANY politician and all politicians.  Good gravy!
