The COVID Information War Exposed
Wikipedia, Google, & Fact Checkers Have Made Sure Normies Can't Figure Anything Out. Here's how they're doing it.
How do you convince millions of Americans a virus less deadly than the flu is worth turning the world upside down over? How do you manage to mass vaccinate western nations with the most deadly vaccine in history, that’s really a novel genetic therapy, without most people asking too many questions? How do you go about convincing otherwise intelligent people to not only take said vaccine, but to proselytize for it?
The answer to all of these questions is the same; you control and/or manipulate the information they are able to access. Prior to the scamdemic, this sort of information control was far less efficient, and more saliently, far slower. During the notorious Event 201 exercise, information control was a key element of the rehearsed pandemic response. In my view, the powers-that-shouldn’t-be not only upped their censorship game massively during covid, in ways I’ll elaborate on, but they also engaged in proactive information warfare, seeding the web in advance of the typical normie “doing their own research.” This second and more cunning approach is why you can try to “red pill” or share information with a narrative believer, and maybe even convince them to go “look it up” - but it doesn’t matter, they do go look it up and then go on believing the narrative.
Here’s an example to start, if you have been following the story of FDA approved Comirnaty not being available, then you know it’s not, at least in the U.S. as of now. Neither is Spikevax (Moderna FDA Approved Version.) Less than a month ago, in the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine EUA Letter of Authorization, the FDA reiterated this point.
“Although SPIKEVAX (COVID-19 Vaccine, mRNA) and Comirnaty (COVID-19 Vaccine, mRNA) are approved to prevent COVID-19 in certain individuals who fall within the scope of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine authorization, there is not sufficient approved vaccine available for distribution to this population in its entirety at the time of reissuance of this EUA. Additionally, there are no COVID-19 vaccines that are approved to provide: a third primary series dose to certain immunocompromised populations described in this EUA; a first booster dose (homologous) to the authorized population described in this EUA; a first booster dose (heterologous) following completion of primary vaccination with another authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine; a second booster dose following a first booster dose with any FDA authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine to the authorized population described in this EUA; or COVID-19 vaccination in individuals younger than 16 years of age.”

Now, imagine I am sharing this information with a normie relative, “Did you know the FDA approved versions aren’t even available? You can only receive the EAU version, which provides minimal/no compensation in the event you are injured. And, technically, by taking the EUA version you are participating in a Stage 3 clinical trial.”
Let’s say my normie relative is willing to go “fact check” me, or even just Google it. Here’s what ze would find.
It’s an axiom in advertising and internet marketing (the field I work in) that almost no one ever looks “below the fold;” in other words what you see above is all my normie relative will ever see. What would be useful there, and informative, etc. would be a result with the letter from the FDA I quoted and linked to above, which does directly address the search querie I made, with accurate information… but lol.
Let’s try Spikevax.
With Moderna’s Spikevax, there was clearly less of an effort to conceal the reality (since most people had already been vaxxed by the time it was approved in January.) But there was still one effort from Politifact, and that again is the only potentially relevant result from my search that appears above the fold.
Spikevax and Comirnaty are brand names for the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines, respectively. The claim falsely implies that those vaccines, which have received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, are different from the non-branded vaccines that have been in use since December 2020 under the Emergency Use Authorization.

My point isn’t to illustrate how willing major media and fact check orgs are to openly lie, you probably already know that. Back to my hypothetical normie relative, once ze has attempted to verify the information I shared, what do you think they are is likely to conclude?
After a quick bit of doing their research, ze is likely to conclude that I’m a conspiracy nut, completely full of shit, that just wasted their time and energy. But it gets worse, I suspect ze is likely to also conclude that all these anti-vaxxers are full of shit, spouting things even a monkey could disprove in the 0.77 seconds it took Google to fetch me these results. Ze is going to take shots from now on without question, and probably feels stupid for ever listening to me. Are you starting to see the problem?
SEEDING AND SANITIZING WIKIPEDIA PROACTIVELY
I know, I know, academics in the audience, Wikipedia is not a good source of information. But people still use it, a lot of people. For me personally, if I’m researching something I will occasionally use Wikipedia to quickly find links to better reference material. Sometime mid 2020, after the vaccine clinical trials had begun, I went to Wikipedia to find some resources that would help me understand what an RNA vaccine was, and what were its risks and benefits. In order to see what a webpage looked like at some point in the past, you can visit the Way Back Machine, an invaluable tool in the information war. Here’s their capture of the Wikipedia RNA Vaccine Page on April 29, 2020.
This is roughly what it looked like the first time I saw it. You’ll notice “Antibody Dependent Enhancement” listed under “Adverse Effects and Risks” with a link. ADE was and is a well known risk, of both Coronavirus vaccines and RNA vaccines. After reading the linked reference more than two years ago, it was obvious to me that RNA vaccines carried HUGE risks. Back then, a quick Googling of “RNA Vaccine” would lead you to that information. Reviewing various captures of this same page over time reveals a continued effort to “sanitize” this page, long before the first shots ever went into arms.
By the August 1, 2020 capture, ADE has been removed from the “Adverse Effects and Risks.”
By the February 24, 2021 capture, the whole section has been renamed to “Side effects and risks” and further sanitized. (This version reads like it was written by Fauci.)
If you want to conceal a webpage’s history from the Way Back Machine, the easiest way to do it is to rename the page. Once that is done, surreptitiously, anyone searching the new URL on the Way Back Machine will usually not see previous captures of the old URL, which will have probably disappeared entirely. It’s quite clever. The Wikipedia ../RNA_vaccine page became the Wikipedia ../MRNA_vaccine page. As of today, the version of the page shown above with ADE listed as an “adverse event” is no longer accessible through the Way Back Machine. (Sure glad I saved it before it was gone.)
I have also documented a very similar sequence of changes made to the Wikipedia DNA Vaccine page. Again most of the sanitizing was done well before the vaccine roll out. Someone spent a lot of time identifying and removing this information months before our normie friends would ever sit down to “do their own research.”
SPEED IS EVERYTHING IN THE INFORMATION WAR
If you’re reading this, chances are you consume a lot of other information too. Between sites like Substack and ZeroHedge, it’s possible to pretty easily keep up with the latest developments in real time. Even if most of what you read is memory holed out of existence within hours, you may not care or even notice because you already consumed the relevant information.
Now consider the perspective of my normie relative one last time, ze doesn’t care all that much about the latest news; in their opinion, if it’s important enough it will trickle down to them. If they decide to “do their own research” it’ll be long after the truth is well below the fold. This is, I think, a real problem. It makes communicating with normal folks very difficult, especially when they go to look up the “crazy shit” you or I are attempting to share with them, and find out we’re “liars.”
