    That piece is rather scattergun, but there are elements that ring true and are quite disturbing.

    Why is the site irrelevant? I haven’t looked at it because when I opened the link I immediately thought ‘I’m not clicking on anything on here’ and closed it down again.

    What has she got to say for herself and what are her credentials?

    Is it this woman?
    Description
    Judy Anne Mikovits is an American anti-vaccination activist, conspiracy theorist and discredited ex-medical researcher. She has made discredited claims about vaccines, coronavirus, and chronic fatigue syndrome.


    Coronavirus conspiracy theories
    See also: Misinformation related to the COVID-19 pandemic § Conspiracy theories
    Mikovits gained attention on social media for promoting her ideas about the COVID-19 pandemic. She does not believe that a vaccine is needed to prevent COVID-19, and claims that the coronavirus was "caused by a bad strain of flu vaccine that was circulating between 2013 and 2015". She also claimed masks will “activate” the virus and reinfect a mask-wearer over and over.[5] One of her videos about the coronavirus pandemic was fact-checked by the website Maldita.es, which rated the claims she made as either false or not based on evidence.[11] The Republic World website also fact-checked her claim that the global health system uses vaccines as weapons to make profits, judging that the claim was false.[12] Politifact described the video as "a deep dive into conspiracy theories about COVID-19, public health and the pharmaceutical industry."[43] The Daily Beastreported that "experts say the allegations Mikovits lays out in the interview with Willis don’t stand up to the slightest scrutiny".[44]

    One such circulating video gained notoriety in May 2020. Titled Plandemic Part 1, this film is a half-hour long documentary-styled interview of Mikovits's perspective on the accusations thrown upon her by the WPI.[6][45] YouTube removed this video from its website a number of times, citing its Community Guidelines.[46][47] It was later removed by Vimeo and Facebook for similar reasons.[48] David Gorski reviewed the video for his blog and remarked that "the amount of nonsense, misinformation, disinformation, and conspiracy mongering in Mikovits’ response to questions is truly epic."[49]

    She’s a nutter, caught out lying on medical issues numerous times.

    Right that’s it for me on this thread, cheery bye.

    She has been interviewed on various platforms, this is just one of them.

    Only heard her twice now and only this week. Never heard of her before, so I’m not vouching for her, but will listen further with balance.

    Not sure that being removed from Facebook and YouTube are much to go on.

    I'd never heard of her, but someone sent me that link. She claims not to be anti-vaccination, but is certainly anti-big Pharma. She may well be a nutter, but some of what she has to say has a ring of truth, which is why I was curious to get your thoughts. Shame.

    The only thing you need to consider about a conspiracy theory is how many people would need to be both in on it and able to keep their mouths shut permanently for it to remain a conspiracy rather than a being a fact or a proven scandal.

    We in big Pharma constantly sit around pondering how we can invent diseases, spread them, and offer spurious treatments at huge prices. It’s a great craic.

    Well if they can prove that Madeline McCann was killed by this new German suspect then that’s my theory out of the window.

    As I said on the other thread - we should beware of groups who claim to be the only possessors of the real truth - normally they mean trouble, and history has proved this over and over again !
