There is a new book out called Anansi’s Gold by Yepoka Yeebo which tells the story of how a convicted small-time confidence trickster John Ackah Blay-Miezah originally from Ghana reinvented himself and fooled the world’s elite. His outrageous claims to be the guardian of a pile of gold, diamonds and cash worth $27bn proved alluring to punters as Blay-Miezah travelled the world parroting the lifestyle of the rich.

Curiously, those fooled by the con were not put off when the promised rewards failed to materialise at a string of supposed payouts organised at luxury hotels and resorts. Blay-Miezah was so convincing and adept at playing the role of a fabulously rich man with access to a secret hoard that his excuses only added to the mysterious chic of the scheme, leaving those who had been fooled even more convinced. You can read a summary here.
The story resonates with the great con foisted on the world’s population during the pandemic. A confidence trick that is still in progress, but beginning to fall apart at the seams. Watch Stephane Bancel, CEO of Moderna, being interviewed by Senator Rand Paul about a payment of $400 million Moderna recently made to the US National Institute of Health (NIH). NIH is the organisation that sets the vaccine policy in the USA which incredibly still recommends repeated Covid vaccines for every age group.
Bancel squirms under cross examination, looks up at the sky, and takes his time to work out how many times or if at all his children were vaccinated. Eventually he lumps for a vague 3 to 4 jabs each, while avoiding eye contact. Incredibly, faced with published studies documenting myocarditis harms to young persons, he pretends that Covid infection is much worse for younger age groups, against all evidence.
Bancel is at the first stage of the classic reaction of a criminal perpetrator when found out. This is known as DARVO which stands for deny, attack, and reverse the position of victim and offender (victim blaming). Bancel was caught by the cameras in denial.
Similar accusations of misleading pandemic advice are flying around at the moment. Vinay Prasad a renowned and highly published expert on drug testing for safety has published a blank sheet on his X feed saying “I found all the reliable evidence that [Pfizer’s] Paxlovid prevents or reduces long covid and compiled them in this figure”. In other words, there is no evidence.
A couple of days ago I summarised data published by Stats NZ recording an unprecedented increase in annual deaths for the year to July 2023 (up 14%), a decrease in the natural birth increase (down 28%) compared to pre-pandemic. Figures published by the Household Labour Force Survey show that disability (incapacity to work) is up 37.5% over the same period. Despite being a simple regurgitation of official data, this was met with denial in some quarters, one hapless doctor replied “it is all lies” without bothering to check the facts.
Nor are we strangers to attacks. I feel deeply sorry for all those hundreds of thousands of individuals around the world severely injured by Covid vaccines whose symptoms have been dismissed as imaginary, minor, or even the result of their own actions. Many have been denied appropriate treatment or attacked and gaslighted online for speaking up.
Attempts to reverse truth and present the infliction of injury as a virtue are incomprehensible and repugnant (a process known as whitewashing). NZ has reported its lowest natural increase in births and lowest fertility rate since 1943 during the second world war. Similar figures are being recorded in other countries including the UK. Professor Sarah Harper CBE, founder and director of the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing and a former government adviser, said yesterday:
“I think it’s a good thing that the high-income, high-consuming countries of the world are reducing the number of children that they’re having. I’m quite positive about that.”
The latest figures involve a sudden acceleration of a gradual long term trend of reducing fertility and increasing deaths that is not predicted from the prior data and therefore highly unlikely to be the result of an ageing population or changing values as some suggest. Fertility is closely connected with individual health. Professor Harper’s comment attempts to portray failing health in developed countries as a benefit, rather than the outcome of increasingly poor diet and the adverse effects of modern medicine.
All the above have the classic hallmarks of a con. Repeatedly, advocates of biotechnology are announcing imminent cures for diseases while presiding over increases in rates of chronic illness and iatrogenic disease (illness caused by treatments). A string of announcements of imminent improvements in Covid vaccines and treatments similar to this one from Oxford University fall into this category. Like the promises of Blay-Miezah, they never seem to materialise. Instead being substituted over time by new even more alluring promises (you can find out more about the biotech fraud here).
Blay-Miezah was eventually caught out when, like Stephane Bancel in front of Rand Paul, he failed miserably during a probing interview with 60 minutes. In Blay-Miezah’s case, we are talking about a time when mainstream media was still exposing fraud. It isn’t now and apparently doesn’t intend to do so in future.
We are entering a new age where medical authorities can dictate media content with impunity.
In an alarming development, YouTube has introduced a new “medical misinformation policy” that will now censor not just Covid information but any medical or health-related content that doesn’t align with claims made by the World Health Organisation (WHO) or Local Health Authorities (LHAs). In other words, we are likely to be censored if we question the safety of certain modern medical approaches or we discuss complementary approaches to maintain health. This extends the freedom of WHO and LHAs to gaslight those affected by adverse effects whilst keeping the lid on criticism and natural approaches to health even if verified by the results of studies.
Large payouts to government bodies like the $400 million ‘gift’ of Moderna to NIH are indicative of institutionalised corruption on a grand scale. Sir Jonathan Van-Tam (known as JVT), the UK’s former Chief Medical Officer and an acknowledged expert in something called ‘medical strategy’, has just been appointed a senior medical consultant to biotech giant Moderna in the latest round of revolving door appointments.
During his time as UK Chief Medical Officer Van-Tam made decisions on supply contracts for Covid jabs including with Moderna and appeared regularly on TV to offer simplified explanations of Covid policy intended to reassure the public. Something that according to UK Health Minister Sajid Javid made him a ‘national treasure’. The UK government also cemented a long term research and development contract with Moderna worth £150 million during JVT’s tenure.
I can’t help wondering if JVT’s first task at Moderna will be to coach Stephane Bancel on the right strategy to avoid answering difficult questions on excess deaths and adverse effects of vaccines. It might come in very handy. This would be laughable if it didn’t involve human life on a scale that is beginning to rival that of wartime.
Our politicians, the media and our doctors are letting us down. The latest data shows Covid jabs have not prevented infection, transmission, serious illness, or death, they have facilitated it. Don’t let go of common sense.
