    Theirs no conspiracy. Pandemics have been in history for all of time. The Governmental lack of Leadership, and the Media Pollution of injected daily fear. Depicts a Society ,a Global Society as a stumbling people who lack vision too inact change, and rather cower too suggredation. Our times are feed by the Sensationalism of the next 15 minutes!. Free your Mind , your Ass will "Follow".

    When he mentioned that the best way to convince people to think differently is to come at them with empathy and understanding about their position and gently nudge them in the right direction, my mind went directly to Pete Buttigieg. That's what he was best at.

    Here is the thing. The term "Conspiracy Theorie" is not well suited. Since it's far away from Theorie as a scientific method or a concept that is scientifical profable, it's more a believ of people. So you can not argue with this believers on a rational way. So it is suggest to better call it "Conspiracy Mythology". Because it's not more than this.

    the overwhelming majority of trump supporters aren’t smart, critical thinking is an alien concept to them. A normal individual wouldn’t bother with internet conspiracies much less believe them to be true. The trump cult is abnormal, I pity them and their MAGA hats made in communist china.

    Most countries have just 5-10% conspiracy theorists, america is much worse off because it's less knowledgeable on average and half the country celebrates their ignorance as a kind of personal 'american exceptionalism'.
    E.g. the very famous statistic that '55% of americans do not know that the sun is a star'
    Or the fact they can name every state but not identify any other country on a map.

    Listen to experts, dont listen to random dudes on the net, yep I agree for most parts.
    But, if multiple doctors with both practical experience and theoretical knowledge explains something on YT like lets say,, HCQ+Zink works as a good anti against covid19 we should not listen to the experts any more right, we should even take away there license to practice medicine all together as a response to there insolence, right?
    Who we should trust instead is a billionaire with no education on the matter and with vested interests in vaccine manufacturing, he know for sure how to kill Covid19 and how you should conduct your life from here on going forward in to the future.
    Media is sense long a mouth-peace for big corp and "Experts in science" is just 1 click away from being equally biast and paid for. I am sorry, but being a "critical thinker" is not that easy.

    What's kinda funny about the things that John Oliver and his sources were saying about how tempting conspiracy theories are was that those things can also exactly be applied to Religion. Just think about it. There is no evidence, and yet the people have faith. Some may see that as good, or bad, or irrational, or heroic, but honestly Religion is just a means of explaining something that nobody understood at the time the religion was created. It is so much easier to believe a man in the sky created everything than to study Quantum Physics

    JFK was a conspiracy because one man couldn't physically shoot that quickly with the rifle, on top of that the "assassin" was killed live on tv by jack ruby, that itself is extremely suspicious, to say "people couldn't handle one man could do it.." is quite frankly ridiculous and I expect more from Mr. Oliver

    For what it's worth, I'm a biomedical engineer. The virus has never been isolated. If you ever take the time to read the scientific publications that claimed to isolate the virus you will find that they Did Not. That should be a bit of a red flag, because isolating a microorganism is absolutely necessary to AT LEAST prove that it exists.

    When I became suspicious, I decided to personally review the papers myself and found they're all the same. All they've really done is taken some respiratory tract samples, cultured that on some vero cells (monkey kidneys), and then did some genetic sequencing as an "isolation" technique. That is deceptive & misleading.
    For TRUE isolation to be achieved; fluid samples would need to be taken from patients and then filtered out to let viral sized particles pass thru for collection, followed by density gradient centrifugation to further separate (ISOLATE) the virus from any remaining microorganisms & substances - None of them have done that!

    Also (because I hear this a lot), “Sequencing” is NOT an isolation technique. It strictly serves to analyze & determine the unique genome structure (base blueprint) of the virus, OR rebuild the genome structure (like they claim to do in vaccine viruses for example).
    To be clear: Before ANY legitimate sequence mapping can occur, the whole virus needs to be purified (Isolated), so it can be properly Analyzed TO DETERMINE what its' physical structure and full genome sequence looks like.

    But since lab scientists haven't actually isolated it, they rely on Computer Modeling Software to piece together a long THEORETICAL genome sequence from a few small fragments of whatever they're claiming to be a virus. And yes, the "tests" being used to diagnose someone with covid-19 are based on the same faulty science. Out of curiosity I checked the product sheets from several test manufacturer's, and found they all say "for research use only. not for diagnostic use". For example (pg. 5):

    Combine that with arguably the most important fact is that there are NO experimental studies whatsoever that demonstrate this "virus" causes ANY disease. It's good to be skeptical, but we have to at least wonder how the "Health Officials" can make these claims that have us in a pandemic without any evidence to support viral causation. At best, I would call of of this Fraud.

    To say the virus must exist because people have gotten sick is circular reasoning. It's like saying presents under the tree means Santa Claus must be real. As we know, that's not really evidence in itself. Understanding & Perspective is Everything in making sense of the world and seeing through the smoke & mirrors... There are other reasons some people have gotten sick & died, but that's a topic for another day.

    Don't let them fool you.
    Question everything. Including this.

    Thank you for existing. When the whole world has gone mad, it's refreshing to hear I'm not alone and am the majority in using logic over fear. It takes real courage to see the truth. While the world focuses on conspiracy theories that barely even stand up, we're successfully distracted by the very reason we are in a pandemic, and will continue to experience loss of freedom, oppression and terror until we recognize animal exploitation and how we have forgotten our true nature. Karma is a b!*$h.Trump 's reign is nearly over. Use your heart too, people.

    Sorry to comment so late, just two things I would like explained.
    1. Why did Fauci publish an article in the New England Journal of Medicine, in which he compared CV-19 to the flu.
    2. Why did the head of the CDC admitt to falsification of the death rate for CV-19 on C-Span.
    Just wondering what you have to say about those two things.
    And I'm sorry but i believe things just because celebrities say it's true.
    If I did then I would believe that the BLM really cared about black lives, but I don't see them in marching in the black communities where little children are being killed in drive by shooting. Or the child that was shot at the riot caused by BLM, excuse me I meant peaceful protest. That was okay because if was BLM doing the shooting I suppose. And which news organizations should I believe? CNN which has a lower rating than the Cartoon network, or MSNBC which pushed the RUSSIAN COLLUSION hoax, when the only one colluding with Russia was Hillary Clinton, whose husband got $250,ooo for a speaking engagement in Russia while she was selling American uranium to them. If you don't mind I like those things clearly explained if you think you can without lying about them!

    Will some "expert" tell me how many people are dying of corona virus in the USA and how many of those are either very old, recuperating cancer patients, diabetics, HIV positive and morbidly overweight? I hear so much meaningless information that I simply don't believe much of what's being broadcast. And, by the way, I'd rather have the virus than the vaccine.

    I found this on MYSPACE
    My name is Steve Honeywell
    I used to work for a major company that makes bug sprays..
    It was there,,,I met this guy,, who had a cousin,,,who worked for the CIA ,,and got this letter from his cousin before he disappeared on a trip to a flower orchard...
    He thinks his cousin sent him this letter because he knew he was being followed and had feared for his life,,, and wanted people to know the real truth!!
    Listen up people,,you are being conditioned to live a life of servitude.The politicians on both sides are preparing you for this!!
    Look all around you,,everyday our freedoms are being restricted!!
    And why???
    It’s Because you are being trained to accept this as the new normal!!It has been obvious since day one that the russian collusion scandal,the Biden Ukraine connection and now the corona virus and the political bantering about all of them are all a HOAX MEANT TO DISTRACT US AMERICANS!!!
    Washington State is where it all started!!!
    Why Washington,,,it’s because people wouldn’t notice right away,,,and allowing them time to infiltrate our country undetected!!
    Ladies and gentlemen,,we are being conformed to live our lives under the rule of the Murder Hornets!!!
    AM I crazy,,,,,,,,I think not,,,,,,,,let me explain!!!
    Do you think it’s a coincidence that less than a few weeks after the murder hornets landed in Washington,,,,the first Covid case appeared here as well,,
    At that time the hornets were big news,,They new this,,, and had to act quickly to turn our attention somewhere else!!,So they conspired with politicians to come up with a plan..
    This disease and everything surrounding it is a hoax perpetrated by the hornets and republicans and democrats to distract us from their incoming invasion..
    Which they have been planning for years!!!
    Why do you think Nancy Pelosi keeps all that ice cream in her freezer,,it’s not because she is hungry!!!It is solely because of her knowledge of the incoming overlords and what they like to eat,,and why does Trump keep his hair bright orange,,and similar to their natural coloring and also have that sort of bee hive/birds,nest kind of look!!!It is a direct attempt to show his loyalty to them.Both Trump and Pelosi had nests by their homes when they were young and continue to this day,,,,,,,,need I say more!!!
    The obvious signs connecting them are clearly there..
    And Biden,,,his last name begins with a B... Hornets are related to Bees!!!
    Once again more proof,,,
    Justin Bieber from Canada,,close to Washington... last name sounds like bee
    More proof!!!!
    Is possibly helping coordinate an attack from the north!!!Luckily the new wall with Mexico may help us on the southern front,,but that remains to be seen!!!
    The mask wearing mandate is so others don’t hear you scream when they sting us and implant us with microchips so they can track us,,control us,,,and hopefully steal our Netfix passwords..
    Dr Fauci and all the others spouting so called facts and the people who disagree with him,,are all meant to distract you,while the hornets quietly and slowly make their way across the country...
    Wake up people,,they are here,,they are spreading!!Before you know it they will invade your town!!You can’t stop them!!!
    Your govt is lying to you!!You can’t trust the right or the left anymore!!They are both trying to distract you from the hornets!!!
    Because they both know the real truth!!
    Whether you believe what is happening now is real,,, or it’s all some Bs to get the current govt replaced!!!You have all obviously been stung and are being groomed for the upcoming new world order,,,,You are not sheep!!!You are now worker drones!!!
    And you thought it was the Illuminati who were getting ready to rule the world,,,,,you wore sorely mistaken!!!
    I beg of you,,,heed my warnings,,,don’t listen to either side,,,they are both full of shit,,make your OWN decisions!!!
    Its the only way we can save ourselves!!
    Please share this before it’s to late...

    All lies, Real science is hidden and highjacked by psychopaths, to fit their Agendas, they are hiding the criminalities of GMO in our foods/water, the air we breathe and calling it a pandemic. and most don't know viruses are not airborne, nor living organisms, they are created by cells in our body to aid toxic waste removal caused by food/water/drinks/industrial chemical air pollutants, our body absorbs daily, that's what truly makes us sick and eventually die, again all the effects we humans are stricken by is all the chemicals
    and food beverages we consume daily is the cause for our body to decay, flu and colds are the effects of these toxic chemicals, there's no virus only the ones your body generates inside the cell nucleus.

    WHO Admits: No Direct Evidence Masks Prevent Viral Infection
    Review of the Medical Literature
    Here are key anchor points to the extensive scientific literature that establishes that wearing surgical masks and respirators (e.g., “N95”) does not reduce the risk of contracting a verified illness:
    Jacobs, J. L. et al. (2009) “Use of surgical face masks to reduce the incidence of the common cold among health care workers in Japan: A randomized controlled trial,” American Journal of Infection Control, Volume 37, Issue 5, 417 - 419.
    N95-masked health-care workers (HCW) were significantly more likely to experience headaches. Face mask use in HCW was not demonstrated to provide benefit in terms of cold symptoms or getting colds.
    Cowling, B. et al. (2010) “Face masks to prevent transmission of influenza virus: A systematic review,” Epidemiology and Infection, 138(4), 449-456. review/64D368496EBDE0AFCC6639CCC9D8BC05
    None of the studies reviewed showed a benefit from wearing a mask, in either HCW or community members in households (H). See summary Tables 1 and 2 therein.
    bin-Reza et al. (2012) “The use of masks and respirators to prevent transmission of influenza: a systematic review of the scientific evidence,” Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses 6(4), 257-267.
    “There were 17 eligible studies. … None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection.”
    Smith, J.D. et al. (2016) “Effectiveness of N95 respirators versus surgical masks in protecting health care workers from acute respiratory infection: a systematic review and meta-analysis,” CMAJ Mar 2016
    “We identified six clinical studies … . In the meta-analysis of the clinical studies, we found no significant difference between N95 respirators and surgical masks in associated risk of (a) laboratory-confirmed respiratory infection, (b) influenza-like illness, or (c) reported work-place absenteeism.”
    Offeddu, V. et al. (2017) “Effectiveness of Masks and Respirators Against Respiratory Infections in Healthcare Workers: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis,” Clinical Infectious Diseases, Volume 65, Issue 11, 1 December 2017, Pages 1934-1942,
    “Self-reported assessment of clinical outcomes was prone to bias. Evidence of a protective effect of masks or respirators against verified respiratory infection (VRI) was not statistically significant”; as per Fig. 2c therein:

    I had it. I was sick for a day and then fine for a week until i got tested for the anti bodies and im immune. The shit is not a threat. Its a cold. My mother with one barely working kidney had it and never took any meds at all. Not to mention they lied about the malaria medicine, they said it didnt work and it has bad side effects when they knew that wasnt true, it did work, and there are no side effects. Im a progressive, i hate trump, hes a monster and so is all of the republican party, but so is the democratic party. They both just want to give everything to the rich and leave us with nothing. It also has to have something to do with the election. Im not denying the virus exists, it does. I had it, what i am denying is the serverity of the virus. Because its not severe, its barely a cold. The government and mainstream media lied about BECAUSE THAT'S ALL THEY DO IS LIE. You think all of the sydden they care about us? If they want us alive its to obey and consume. Not anything to do with anything altruistic.

    Covid death rates ARE exaggerated. That's not to say that someone is spouting made up numbers. It's more that the numbers which are being given are not being examined. Official covid death rates do not, for instance, take into account the large number of asymptomatic infecteds. Death rate is deaths divided by cases, so if there are actually far more cases than are being reported, then the death rate is being exaggerated and probably greatly. And this is what is happening. Bottom line, Oliver is basically saying that if a conspiracy theory sounds crazy, it probably is. But although this is surely true statistically, it doesn't mean that the current conspiracy theory isn't right. But I just mentioned a conspiracy theory that is true - that covid death rates are exaggerated. There aren't others that are true? Epstein's suicide, for instance? Trump becoming President? Just because it's a conspiracy theory doesn't mean it isn't true, although they usually aren't.

    I actually like you, because u call people out on their bullsh*t but this was was a "piece" of bullsh*t. For one Princess Diana was sacraficed on pagan ceremonial ground where a church once was. Next dirt is actually a necessity for health and vital to our immune system, along with probiotics floating in air that can and do come from the ocean. Also patients in normal circumstances are forced to wait to be checked by a doctor, but during this "plandemic" have been told to go home and wait out their symptoms until on they're on the verge of death, which adds to the body count, exaggerated by the lack of care, because covid-19 is a supposed new virus and so the symptoms are not being treated. A person can die of a fever if left alone. And finally circulating air for a sick person can cause a respiratory disease, like Covid-19 to be re-introduced and incubate in a larger quantity. So nice try picking and choosing your "relevant" information and not mentioning Jeffery Epstein, 9/11, MK Ultra or any other proof of when people have been wronged and silenced to perpetuate your idea that conspiracy theories are dangerous. I don't know God, but I do know evil and these times are perpetuated by the ones who already own everything. This episode compared to others was really half a$$ed bringing into question your real purpose.

    The 5G one was quite big in the UK (among the nutters of which there are many)... then sort of stopped weirdly.
    Did they all wise up?
    It's almost as if these people latch on to absolutely every theory that popular in the moment, then quickly move on to the next one that arises.

    My Aunt, an ICU nurse for decades (now retired), is refusing to get any corona vaccine because Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci "created this mild virus and funded the media as an excuse to microchip us". I just can't anymore man. I do the best I can; I haven't seen my friends in months, I wear a mask everywhere I go, I've convinced my immediate family that we need to limit physical contact with everyone else and each other. Yet because of people like my aunt, a woman who has saved hundreds of lives, we'll be here for the long haul.

    *The Hollywood/NWO Conspiracy*
    An aristocrat, a con artist, and a graphic designer are in a bar. There is a table of construction workers and a couple of police officers at other tables. The con man goes to the restroom and drops his watch while washing his hands. The question is how does it play out? Isn't the purpose of theater to get your teeth into a problem and work it out? How then is there a conspiracy? Because theater is like any other con-artist and they have an agenda while working their definitions. There are basically two sorts of people. There are those on the engineering line and those who must run cons and scams. So,
    The political scam of the day is to break up the stagnant middle-class and turn them into risk-taking winners (If this was 2 decades ago). I'm not the middle-class or a church-goer. Scams trying to turn the middle-class into risk-takers will be ignored here. Point your stagnation where it goes, please. The nature of profit decrees a loser every time. There is a difference between securities and investments.
    *A Middle-Class Smoker Trick*
    Men who fall behind the other men become as loose cannons and will over and undercompensate. This is the majority. In the game of con artists and flimflam its best to fit in with them and make your mark there because they will make the mistake of taking the law into their own hands, giving you the advantage and a clear legal road. Do not take the middle road and leave them to their own games. If in doubt, ask a mark what they do for a living. Every scam has a definition that makes the trick work and keeps the mind on its guard. For example, I say I can light a cigarette, take four drags, and the cigarette will stay the same length. This is easily done by lighting the cigarette in the middle. If you keep a definition in mind the trick will work better. Some definitions grow with a scam and work the whole way through. This is just a cheap example.
    *First, they lure you in with insider gambit then you agree to a small crime then you become a mark or a guard and can't tell the authorities. It's their best interest to create risk and the more marks the better. One way to avoid becoming a mark is by enthusiasm. Nothing kills a deal more than the prospect of reciprocation and your enthusiasm will allude to its opposite and cause confusion. (Tell me more. I'm interested!) If there is a media conspiracy it has to do with long-term storyboarding and hook-line-and sinker, to create more marks or insiders who can't turn by breaking up the middle-class integrity. There are two basic alternative factions concerning the Holy Roman Empire (Vampires) and Subliminal Graphic Arts rendering (economic drivers) which have different agendas. You decide.
    As anyone would see it the graphic artist is just a hired person who can be bought by any of them. The con man has his own crazy agenda as does the aristocrat who is obviously dirty already and they may be intertwined with the police in the bar and the construction workers (Freemasons) already from proximity and regularity. Anyway, the way the actual 'scenario' works out the graphic artists and the aristocrat become the guilty parties and the real artist was the graphic designer. The graphic designer had worked with all them in the bar and the con man was the small man on the ladder running a test for marks or guards. The con man was an ex-cop who knew the tricks and was dirty but was really undercover and had conned the con artists and the construction workers were just in it for the kicks and kickbacks. The aristocrat was taken in by the graphic artists and ended up funding the whole thing and the con artist/cop busts him in the end. He had lured them in one at a time and sold them dirty techniques.
