Capitalising on Corona – Colloidal Silver – #4

May 31, 2020 // 2 Comments

Whenever there’s a heightened sense of fear and hysteria, scammers come out of the woodwork to both amplify and capitalise on the general public’s growing unrest. In recent months I’m sure you, like me, have seen examples of price gouging, fake charities, medical scams, and unhinged conspiracy theories regarding the origin of SARS-CoV-2. Governments, journalists, scientists et al have done their best to protect the public, but found themselves playing a thankless global game of [...]

Capitalising on Corona – David Icke and 5G Conspiracies – #2

May 3, 2020 // 3 Comments

David Icke is a former footballer, sports broadcaster, and spokesman for the Green Party, who attracted media attention in the early 90s due to his unusual views. Recently there has been fresh controversy surrounding David after London Live TV published a 105-minute interview with the conspiracy theorist, in which he linked the coronavirus pandemic to 5G mobile phone networks. The full interview published to the London Real YouTube channel was over two and a half hours long, but could easily [...]

Capitalising on Corona – MMS and the Bleach Cult – #3

April 30, 2020 // 0 Comments

In this third instalment of Capitalising on Corona, I’m going to be covering old ground and once again talk about the Genesis II Church of Health & Healing cult and their bleach sacrament, which they market online as a cure-all tonic. I realise that I’ve covered this subject to death, but these quack cultists and their corrosive elixir are showing no sign of going away and, if anything, have been ramping up their activities since the beginning of the [...]

Welcome to the third instalment of Capitalising on Corona, the series in which I point a spotlight on the disinformation distributers who have been exploiting the current pandemic to push their agenda and sell their snake-oil. I can imagine a few of you reading this will be thinking to yourself, “What happened to the second instalment?” Unfortunately, a copyright claim was filed against it by London Real, a company whose slogan is ironically, “Fighting for Free Speech Since 2011”. The [...]

February 29, 2020 // 1 Comment

As I’m sure most of you are aware, there is an ongoing outbreak of a novel coronavirus causing something of a panic around the world. At the time of writing, it’s been eight weeks since Chinese health authorities first reported a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province and major transport hub of central China. As I have previously said, no event of any significance in the world takes place without generating a flutter of conspiracy speculation, and this potential [...]

As I’m sure most of you are aware, there is an ongoing outbreak of a novel coronavirus causing something of a panic around the world. At the time of writing, it’s been eight weeks since Chinese health authorities first reported a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province and major transport hub of central China. The earliest human infections are believed to have occurred by early December 2019, and a large meat market was linked to most – but not all – of the [...]
