SARS: A Great Global Scam

The personal and public health model we have been conditioned to accept as most beneficial to ourselves and the world is called “allopathic.” The allopathic model requires that we believe germs are outside invaders that must be killed to prevent disease. We can also call this the military model of personal and public health: Armies of allopaths have been deployed all over the world delivering vaccines, antibiotics and a huge array of pharmaceutical drugs to combat diseases; allopathic allies in the chemical industry are called in to conduct pesticide airstrikes against disease-carrying insects.

SARS is a coronavirus and is closely related to the common cold. That it has suddenly appeared on the world theater of disease operations as deadly is an indication the allopathic army has either lost the war on disease or the allopathic army's information ministry is perpetrating a fraud; people have either become so immunologically damaged from allopathy they cannot even defend themselves from the common cold or we are frightened into believing we must trust the allopathic army to defend us from yet another disease enemy.

The evidence indicates that the current SARS hysteria is both: The allopathic army has lost the war on disease and is perpetrating a fraud on the world's people. Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, internationally-renowned author, lecturer and public health authority, has applied his tremendous research skills to the creation of a website dedicated to the SARS scam. The website is

You are about to read much neglected truths pertaining to this bizarre new pneumonia-like illness called SARS. Authorities explain this acronym for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome as simply the latest threat in an ongoing series of attacks on humanity by mysteriously mutating “supergerms.” Yet a careful study of this multi-disciplinary subject reveals something amiss that is far more insidious and deadly than SARS. This spreading scourge of SARS stretching from Asia to North America has all the earmarks of a novel social experiment in population manipulation aimed to culture the mass mind for the arrival of the “Big One” -- a biological agent that will facilitate decimation of approximately a third to half of the world's population, in keeping with current official population reduction objectives.

Naturally you would be disinclined to believe the above sentence. But if you choose to have your worldview shattered by considering the little known truths surrounding SARS, then continue reading.


As a Harvard graduate in public health, and expert in the fields of medical sociology, behavioral science, and emerging diseases, I am best known for my work exposing the man-made origin of HIV/AIDS in the national best-selling book, Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola -- Nature, Accident or Intentional? This was my tenth book that American grassroots activists, medical physicians and scientists included, made a national bestseller. U.S. government documents that I reprinted for the first time for the world to see were strong endorsements for this work. Included here are stunning and tragic contracts under which numerous AIDS-like and Ebola-like viruses were bio-engineered by the U.S. Army's 6th leading biological weapons contractor Litton Bionetics, a medical subsidiary of the mega-military weapons contractor called Litton Industries. You can get free information on this man-made, vaccine-transmitted theory of AIDS at Here I focus your attention on SARS, and what mainstream sources of information are withholding about this new pandemic.

This narrative was written immediately following my return from Total Health 2003, an alternative medical conference in Toronto, Canada, held March 27-30, 2003. I landed in Toronto the day that SARS began dominating front page headlines in every major newspaper in the country. Five consecutive days of unprecedented media blitz in Canada's largest city over the new killer syndrome left the entire population frightened and bewildered.

Having been well-trained in media health promotion and persuasion methods from my behavioral science studies at Harvard, I concluded that something akin to a social experiment was underway. I realized with SARS, people were being frightened beyond reason. The classic definition of phobia was being manifested on a social, if not global, scale.

Surely the SARS death rate, approximately 3 percent, was insufficient cause for such widespread panic. The media successfully whipped the Canadian population into a trembling mass of masked and quarantined “sheeple.” Officials were forced to direct the closing of hospitals, restaurants, schools, and workplaces with only two deaths reported at the onset of the media onslaught. Within a few days, more than a thousand healthcare workers volunteered for home quarantine because of SARS. Otherwise, they faced legal arrest and incarceration as advised by the World Health Organization. You will find many of these reports from Canada's daily newspapers, documenting these facts as well as incoming American press reports, in the archive files of this website.


The website at will examine the social and political implications, as well as the correlates (i.e., things related to) and antecedents (i.e., factors or events that predated or precipitated) this new SARS pandemic. By examining this illness's etiology, which lies more in the realm of global politics, corporate profits, and population control than elsewhere, this information offers people an alternative to the fright and irrational behaviors promulgated by “mainstream” propagandists including news sources and health officials functioning as “spin [rather than medical] doctors.”

Who is behind this SARS madness? I accept the risk of triggering your “conspiracy theory” buttons by identifying the widely recognized “global military-medical-petrochemical-pharmaceutical cartel” as the only suspect that can wield the powers necessary to conduct a social experiment on an international scale.

Clearly, what you are witnessing is a well-organized terror campaign carried out by mostly well-meaning, yet grossly ignorant, “authorities” who are medically indoctrinated and virtually hypnotized “Manchurian candidates.”

Indeed, people are dying from SARS. Yet this illness, by medical-sociological parameters, is a grotesque scam perpetrated for a greater purpose than simply fueling a multi-billion dollar “cottage health industry,” as some analysts have written.

Alternatively, I propose that SARS may be best diagnosed by its telltale dependence on the propaganda used to herald its presence, prompt hysteria, and broadly engage social and economic resources. In military intelligence circles this is called standard “psychological operations” (PSYOPs).

I further suggest this fright's likeliest purpose is in facilitating evolving economic and political agendas that ultimately include targeting approximately half the world's current population for elimination. Much of this will be accomplished, not with SARS, but quite effectively and efficiently by the widely anticipated “Big One” as discussed by Associated Press writer Emma Ross.

Disease scare politics, economics

“[T]here's fame, fortune, and big budgets in sounding the emerging infection alarm and warning of our terrible folly in being unprepared.” ~Michael Fumento, National Post, March 28, 2003

This concept of a microbiological Armageddon is not new to most readers. “Experts” have been predicting the arrival of a super-plague for decades. What is HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS about the mysterious and terrifying arrival of SARS is its timing. It arrived virtually synchronous with the global war on terrorism, and the Anglo-American war with Iraq.

This is pathognomonic (i.e., symptomatic and characteristic) of what is predicted and explained in the book, Death in the Air: Globalism, Terrorism and Toxic Warfare (Tetrahedron Publishing Group, 2001; a prophetically-titled text that predated the 9-11 attacks on America by several months, and provides a contextual analysis of this current condition and spreading plague of phobic deception.

In essence, this work and SARS website offers insight into the broad application of a new form of institutionalized “bioterrorism” consistent with state sponsored biological warfare. Saddam Hussein is said to have exposed populations in his and adjacent lands to biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction. These advancing infectious disease attacks in North America are sanctioned by medical-pharmaceutical and allied military industrialists. They complement the global “War on Terrorism”, and bioterror-influenced culture, as additionally profitable, population-controlling, threats.

War for the new millenium

What lay persons view as ever increasing madness in the world around them is eerily consistent with earlier globalist think tank recommendations for the development and deployment of conflicts short of war, and economic substitutes for standard militarization in the new millennium.

These developments were adequately detailed and referenced in Death in the Air: Globalism, Terrorism, and Toxic Warfare. As compared with the first and second world wars, these smaller, more manageable, and better controlled conflicts, orchestrated events, and state sponsored threats, were consistently selected options among foreign policy makers and government officials beginning in the late 1960s.

Henry Kissinger, for instance, as National Security Advisor (NSA) under Richard Nixon, oversaw foreign policy while considering Third World population reduction “necessities” for the U.S., Great Britain, Germany, and other allies. This reputed war criminal and Bush nominee to direct the 9-11 conspiracy investigation, advised the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to develop biological weapons, according to the U.S. Congressional Record of 1975.

Among these biologicals were germs far deadlier than the SARS agent. Under Kissinger's watch as NSA, influenza and parainfluenza viruses were, for example, recombined with quick acting leukemia viruses (acute lymphocytic leukemia) to deliver a weapon that could potentially spread cancer like the flu. These incredible realities have been generally neglected, if not officially secreted.

Weapons selections like these continue to the present day, not simply by radical terrorist groups, but also among a handful of military cartel industrialists that continue to sell weapons of mass destruction to those who can afford them.

These conflicts, short of major wars like WWI and WWII, and war economy substitutes (such as the “War on AIDS,” “War on Crime,” “War on Drugs,” “War on Terrorism,” “War on Cancer,” the environmental protection movement, and the Star Wars Strategic Defense Initiative, all require sophisticated propaganda programs employing fear campaigns for social acceptance and popular support. These PSYOPS for command and control warfare (CCW), military and behavior experts correctly advise, best support a well-defined rapidly evolving “Revolution in Military Affairs” (RMA) which is synonymous to an evolution into a form of human slavery in which the captives are the world's population, including you and your loved ones who would not perceive this as enslavement.

The RMA incorporates the use of debilitating biological weapons and incapacitating chemicals, similar to the toxic carcinogenic organophosphate pesticides deployed against mosquitoes in the “War against the West Nile Virus.” These are often called “non-lethal warfare” agents, yet are indeed deadly. Death results slowly along with advancing mortality from such toxic exposures. Larger profits are made by allied pharmaceutical and medical industrialists as victims of the “non-lethal” exposures die slowly from chronic debilitating diseases, commonly in expensive hospitals and long-term care facilities. Most of these ailments, including the plethora of autoimmune diseases and newer cancers, were virtually non-existent 50 years ago. This fact alone strongly suggests a modern socio-economic and political conspiracy, unless you simply wish to believe it is God's will or man's greed that has brought these conditions to bear upon humanity.

People are all too willing to relinquish their civil rights and personal freedoms in the wake of such engineered frights.

In recent decades, military think tanks prescribed options for “conflicts short of war” that included novel population control policies and methodologies. These provided for:

1) The establishment of new profit centers as traditional large-scale wars were phased out by the new millennium. Examples here include the many multi-billion dollar “homeland security” programs that emerged from post-9/11 legislation, such as those securing air travel and mail delivery. These are just two examples of the myriad of evolving profit centers fueled by frights and institutionalized terror campaigns;

2) The development of advanced persuasion and population control programs, with high tech methods of support, to facilitate a “form of slavery” in which humanity would not realize it had become conditioned into relinquishing personal and social freedoms for the mirage of health, safety, and security. These provided other profit centers and population control options. Once habituated to modern lifestyle restrictions, such as enforced health and travel restrictions, the general population might become virtually “enslaved” with little effective resistance, especially through widespread pharmaceutical dependence (particularly the use of anti-depressant drugs), and through the use of PSYOPs. Media distractions and manipulations were considered essential in achieving this objective; and

3) Lucrative depopulation methods to be employed, including the conditions and resources necessary for culling “excess populations.”

SARS, when considered in light of these social and political impositions, can be clearly understood.

SARS for Profit

By March 28, 2003, senior fellow at the Hudson Institute in Washington, Michael Fumento, published a thesis in Toronto similar to the one I advance here. This well regarded author of The Myth of Heterosexual AIDS: How a Tragedy Has Been Distorted by the Media and Partisan Politics (Regnery Gateway, 1990) provided an editorial titled “Super-bug or Super Scare” -- published in the National Post (p. A16). His editorial included the following:

It's an incident of “unprecedented scope and magnitude,” according to Toronto health officials, who warn Canadians to quarantine themselves, wear masks, and in some cases stay home. Ontario Health Minister Tony Clement has declared a “health emergency.” The media have dubbed it the “mysterious killer pneumonia” or “super-pneumonia.”

But a bit of knowledge and perspective will kill this panic.

Start with those scary tags. “Mysterious” in modern medicine usually means we haven't yet quite identified the cause, although we have now done so here. What's been officially named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) is one or more strains of coronavirus, commonly associated with colds. Killer pneumonia is practically a redundancy, since so many types of pneumonia (there are more than 50) can kill [if not properly treated].

The real questions are: How lethal, how transmissible, and how treatable is this strain? And the answers leave no grounds for excitement, much less panic.


At this writing, SARS appears to have killed 54 people out of almost 1,400 afflicted according to the World Health Organization, a death rate of less than 4 percent. But since this only takes into account those ill enough to seek medical help, the actual ratio of deaths to infections is certainly far less. [This is a tremendous understatement.]

In contrast, the 1918-1919 flu pandemic killed approximately a third of the 60 million afflicted.

Further, virtually all of the deaths have been in countries with horrendous medical care, primarily mainland China. In this country, three people have died out of 28 afflicted according to Health Canada, but that may say more about Canada's vaunted national health-care system than about SARS. In the United States, 40 people have been hospitalized with SARS with zero deaths.

Conversely, other forms of pneumonia kill more than 40,000 North Americans yearly.


Each year millions of North Americans alone contract the flu. Compare that with those 64 SARS cases diagnosed thus far and, well, you can't compare them. Further evidence that SARS is hard to catch is that health care workers and family members of victims are by far the most likely to become afflicted.


“There are few drugs and no vaccines to fight this pathogen,” one wire service panted breathlessly. But there are also few drugs to fight any type of viral pneumonia, because we have very few antiviral medicines. . . .” [end quote]

Consider also approximately 97 percent of cases naturally defended themselves successfully against this plague. What did they, or their immune systems do right? Why is this rarely, if ever, mentioned or investigated by any mainstream source? Alternatively, Mr. Fumento mentions “Ribovirin,” which he states, “appears to be effective against SARS.”

Is this another form of medically-sanctioned institutionalized bias that even the well-intentioned Fumento expresses? Consider the fact that SARS only existed a few weeks prior to Fumento's editorial. In fact, the coronavirus had been questionably cultured from SARS patients only days before Fumento wrote the above. Surely no clinical trials matching Ribovirin with SARS had ever been conducted. At best, then, this statement reflects either drug company propaganda and/or health official speculations.

Fumento continued:

So why all the fuss over this one strain of pneumonia?

First, never ignore the obvious: It does sell papers.

But an added feature to this scare is the cottage industry that's grown up around so-called emerging infectious diseases. Some diseases truly fit the bill, with AIDS the classic example. Others, like West Nile Virus in North America, are new to a given area.

But there's fame, fortune, and big budgets in sounding the emerging infection alarm and warning of our terrible folly in being unprepared. The classic example is Ebola virus, . . . [Mr. Fumento downplays the Ebola threat here].

Yet, you'd almost swear that every outbreak of Ebola is actually taking place in Toronto or New York. . . .

. . . The U.S. government and various North American universities have also seen these faux plagues as budget boosters. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention publishes a journal called Emerging Infectious Diseases, though in any given issue it's hard to find an illness that actually fits the definition.

The U.S. Institute of Medicine just issued a report warning that the United States is grossly unprepared to deal with emerging pathogens. Soothingly, however, it adds that it's nothing that an injection of tax dollars can't cure.

Meanwhile, a disease that emerged eons ago called malaria kills up to 2.7 million people yearly. Another, tuberculosis, kills perhaps three million more. Both afflict North Americans, albeit at very low rates.

The big money and headlines may be in the so-called emerging diseases, but the cataclysmic illnesses come from the same old boring killers. In fact, there may be no fatal illness that will cause fewer deaths in North America this year than SARS.

Fumento concluded by asking, and challenging you to consider:

How do our priorities get so twisted? There's your mystery.

Favored Economic Victims of SARS and Other SCAMS in the RMA

Contrary to Fumento's well considered conclusion that SARS boosts budgets of those who sound alarms loudest, the mainstream media has consistently attempted to have you think otherwise. One article in the Financial Post section of the Canadian newspaper, the National Post, on March 31, 2003 heralds, “SARS virus begins to take toll on global economy.”

With no mention of the far larger number of people and industries that profit from such plagues, and the fears surrounding them, reporter Jacqueline Thorpe's editor assigned her to focus on the airline and tourism industries that are “particularly hard hit.” She wrote:

Businesses in Singapore have shut down, planes over Hong Kong are empty and thousands of people in Toronto have been forced into quarantine as a deadly pneumonia virus adds yet another strain to the beleaguered global economy.

While severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) may not be as debilitating as war in Iraq, slumping stock markets or a weak U.S. labor market, it is already starting to take its toll on some Asian economies and the long-suffering tourism industry. . . .

In Hong Kong, where the number of infections leapt by 60 to 530 over the weekend and 13 people have died, economists at JP Morgan Chase estimate the economy could lose 0.2% to 0.5% of gross domestic product every month from the drop in tourism and private consumption. . . .

Businesses in many Chinese shopping districts [in Toronto] have reported a sharp drop in business.

Dennis Yuent, a merchant in Pacific Mall in Toronto -- North America's largest shopping mall -- said his sales have dropped by about 70% since the SARS scare began. [end quote]

Notice that the expert bankers at JP Morgan-Chase and Thorpe failed to mention the stunning growth in the medical, pharmaceutical, security and law enforcement sectors, and the increase in the “gross domestic product” due to SARS and similar scams.

In the weeks and months following the 9-11 attacks on America, I traced the widely publicized anthrax mailings mystery to U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)- commissioned biological weapons contractors with ties to Britain's M16, Porton Down, the Anglo-American pharmaceutical cartel, including the Bayer, Hoecsht, Baxter and Merck Corporations, and ultimately to George Soros, a global banking and investment industrialist and chief money manager for Europe's wealthiest oligarchy owners of the Genomic Institute that performed the DNA sequencing on behalf of the anthrax vaccine maker and British Porton Down subsidiary, Bioport.

A complete exposé on this topic is provided at

China's Threat and the Anglo-American RMA

It seems suspiciously convenient that the travel industry, Asian travel in particular, would be the greatest victims at a time when globalists (i.e., global industrialists including members of the ultra-rich) have directed military and political policies consistent with the RMA and conflicts short of war agenda. Reducing travel helps to secure wide-ranging RMA objectives.

Less mobile populations, and fewer people in general, are easier to control, especially with increased exposure to television while having to waste their time at home. This is entirely consistent with the “Changing Images of Mankind” advanced by Willis Harmon for Anglo-American military and business interests. The effect of this is similar to forced “quarantine.” Isn't this consistent with a “form of slavery in which humanity would not know it had become enslaved?”

People are all too willing to relinquish their civil rights and personal freedoms in the wake of such engineered frights. The passage of the infamous “Homeland Security Act” in America, and its counterpart in Canada, are classic examples of this societal direction, forced legislation, and egregious manipulation.

How convenient that Asia, and China in particular, is said to be the origin of this North American scourge at a time when Chinese Anglo-American relations are strained, to say the least.

In the days preceding the emergence of the first SARS cases, the U.S. raced to the Pacific Rim to impact escalating aggressions on the Korean peninsula. Communist China, a “most favored” trading partner with America, is politically allied with several American enemies, including those said to possess weapons of mass destruction, including Iraq. Coincidental? Not likely when viewing the larger political picture involving the Anglo-American oligarchy's RMA and instigated “conflicts short of war.”

Ultimately, “We the People” have become the greatest victims of this latest fright, and the larger political agenda it serves.

The Media's Role in SARS: Setting a Precedent

Consider the fact that the mainstream media has been heavily influenced, if not entirely controlled, by multi-national corporate sponsors protecting and advancing the interests of a relatively small number of global industrialists. Also recall that the focus of news providers, on any given hour of the day, results from intelligence agency directives, according to reputable authorities including a myriad of retired news industry executives and intelligence officers. So we must ask, and attempt to answer, the following questions:

* Why have American military officials, beginning with Secretary of Defense William Cohen during the Clinton years, publicized that America's greatest vulnerability lies in the realm of biological weapons wielded by terrorists? Is this not a form of treason against the United States to relay such sensitive intelligence to potential enemies through the mainstream press? During the McCarthy era, Hollywood producers were persecuted for having the slightest liberal or Communist sympathies. What has changed to allow the Hollywood production of “Black Hawk Down” to be used by Saddam Hussein and his military and intelligence commanders to educate and inspire his troops?

* Why does the mainstream media continue to foretell of the expected arrival of the “Big One” -- an influenza virus that will produce a super-flu that will kill millions of people, like the Spanish flu did between 1918-19, while totally disregarding the individuals, organizations, and laboratories that have labored to produce these weapons of mass destruction? Even the devastating Spanish Flu virus has been, literally, unearthed for further study and, do you suppose, possible deployment?

* Why was the “Spanish flu” influenza virus called the “Spanish flu” when it originated, by historic accounts, in Tibet in 1917? It is said that Spanish newspapers were the only ones reporting on the great plague due to their neutrality over World War I politics. However, Spain was as dear to America then as Communist China is to the United States today. The “Spanish flu” was named such following two decades of disputes between America and Spain over colonization of the Caribbean Islands, Hawaii and the Philippines beginning with the Spanish American war that ended in the Philippines in 1902. Does this history appear to be repeating with the advent of SARS, allegedly from China?

* If the legions of recognized authorities herald the coming of the “Big One,” why do the same persons disregard this author's publication of U.S. Government, National Institutes of Health, and National Cancer Institute documents showing that the U.S. Army's 6th top biological weapons contractor in 1969-1970 prepared mutants of influenza and para-influenza viruses recombined with acute lymphocytic leukemia viruses? In other words, how would you like to have a strain of the flu that spreads cancer by sneezing? Can you even rationalize the development of such a lymphocytic leukemia virus that kills most victims in just a few weeks following airborne transmission?

These have been shown clearly on page 452 of the national bestselling book, Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola Nature, Accident or Intentional? and in circulation since 1996. A copy of this menu of infectious agents and potential biological weapons, including several mutant recombinants involving flu viruses, is published on page 14 for your inspection.

* Why haven't you previously heard about these developments? Especially since these documents have been extensively circulated throughout newsrooms and government offices, particularly those engaged in public health, since 1996?

* Finally, since publishing this definitive documentation, and sending this critical intelligence along with urgent pleas to approximately 8,500 members of the mainstream media (as I have done this week and on dozens of previous occasions for the past seven years), how can you turn on your television sets and gain nothing but the same old song?

If you have considered and answered the above questions, doesn't it make sense that America is being manipulated, if not targeted, for the purpose of advancing a global population reduction agenda, if not World War III?

The vast majority of Dr. Horowitz's interpretation of public health issues and how they relate to current events is derived from published medical literature, published science and declassified government documents.

Challenge: If you find it hard to believe that SARS and other disease scares are more closely related to affecting military objectives than improving public health, just type “smallpox” or “AIDS” or “Ebola” into a search engine and start following links. You will then discover the people of the world are at the mercy of government-supported mad scientists working for military-industrialists.

You will also discover that “oil” is just a cover story for the war on terrorism -- which is just a cover story for the real war being waged inside the bodies of the planet's 6 billion common people. (DWH)
