In early January 2020, the World Health Organization ("WHO") announced a mysterious coronavirus-related pneumonia coming out of Wuhan, China.
A couple weeks later, the Centers for Disease Control ("CDC") confirmed the first coronavirus case hit the United States. Global air travel was restricted in early February, and, a day later, the United States declared a public health emergency.
A month later, the WHO declared COVID-19 a pandemic, and, two days later, President Trump announced the United States was in the throes of a national emergency.
In early April, the CDC recommended Americans wear masks in public. Since then, half the country (25 states) have turned the CDC recommendation into a mandate, forcing citizens to mask up.
The recommendation-turned-mandate guidelines consist of:
In September 2020, the CDC released its own numbers showing the extremely high COVID survival rate.
Johns Hopkins University showed virtually the same numbers after conducting a study in November — the mainly Democratic and liberal institution pinned the COVID survival rate at 98%. Their research was quickly deemed fake news by mainstream media, and, fearing people would "minimize the impact of the pandemic," Johns Hopkins chose to take down the article from their website.
Along with pointing to an almost-perfect survival rate, the study proved that "the COVID-19 death toll is misleading" as other illnesses such as heart disease, respiratory disease, influenza, pneumonia and many others were being recategorized as COVID deaths.
These findings were in lockstep with the CDC, which reported in late July that just 6% of reported COVID deaths had COVID listed as the only cause of death.
Despite the ineffectiveness of masks and the COVID death toll being enormously blown out of proportion, American bishops have chosen to buy into the deception.
In May 2020, the Trump administration and AstraZeneca announced a collaboration to make a COVID vaccine. The initiative to fast-track the vaccine was known as "Operation Warp Speed."
Vaccine development, on average, takes 10–15 years. In fact, the fastest vaccine ever made was the 1960s Mumps vaccine, which took four years to develop.
Of the available shots, according to the National Catholic Bioethics Center, only one is listed as "very good" with relation to being ethically pro-life. All others either have an abortion-derived cell line used in development or testing.
Three of the experimental shots are confirmed to have an aborted cell line in both testing and development. Johnson & Johnson checks the box for both. Notably, the FDA and CDC recommended a pause (since lifted) on the Johnson & Johnson vaccine's distribution due to the shot causing blood clots, with one reported death.
The CDC, in total, has reported over 4,000 COVID vaccine deaths.
The man calling the shots for all things COVID in the United States is Anthony Fauci. Fauci is a pro-abortion fallen-away Catholic who identifies as a humanist.
Fauci has been entangled with the pro-abortion globalist regime for a long time. He can be seen (right) in a 2001 picture with Bill Gates, Sr. (who was on the board of trustees for Planned Parenthood) and George Soros (who's donated tens of billions of dollars to the abortion industry). Also in the picture is Ted Turner (the founder of CNN), Barbara Walters (Host of ABC's The View) and Tom Brokaw (a former NBC Nightly News anchor).
The Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith stated in December 2020, "When ethically irreproachable COVID-19 vaccines are not available ... it is morally acceptable to receive COVID-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research and production process" (emphasis added).
But that statement was issued in the context of there being sufficient need or threat (like a worldwide plague).
Around that same time, world-renowned exorcist and theologian Fr. Chad Ripperger added, "The real problem with COVID is there's not sufficiently grave cause to be vaccinated for it. ... People are being brainwashed by the mainstream media; they're constantly harping on this thing."
