Why Cover-Ups Matter

Whether we’re talking about toxic pesticides (such as Monsanto/Bayer’s Roundup), GMOs, highly processed foods, pharmaceutical drug side effects, environmental pollution, greenwashing, or special interest control over domestic and foreign affairs, OCA’s mission, since our founding in the early 1990s, has been to expose cover ups, corporate crime, and dangerous practices--offering up positive solutions. We have never been a single-issue organization, nor have we shied away from controversies such as 9/11, the Anthrax attacks (2001), the Iraq War (2003), stolen elections (in 2000 and 2004), the degradation of organic standards (1998-2021), and the need for a revolutionary transformation of U.S. food and farming as outlined by Bernie Sanders in his proposed Green New Deal (2019-2020).

OCA has never pretended that organic and regenerative food, farming, and public health are “issues” divorced from politics, legislative policy, and economic control. There can be no healthy, organic food and farming and vibrant public health on a burnt and poisoned planet, nor organic justice and Fair Trade for all under a dictatorship of out-of-control corporations, surveillance capitalists, mad scientists, and politicians. OCA has always been politically independent. We attack Democrats and Republicans when they are wrong, and give them credit when credit is due.

Although the majority of Americans (59% Republicans and 52% of Democrats in a recent poll) now believe what OCA,, and Children’s Health Defense have been saying all along, that the overwhelming evidence is that COVID-19 emerged from a lab release in Wuhan, China (whether deliberate or accidental) rather than a “natural” jump from animals into humans, there are still a significant number of people misinformed, confused, anxious, and even panicked by the 24/7 Establishment narrative.

Millions, at home and abroad, unfortunately still believe: (1) the coronavirus pandemic arose naturally (zoonotically) and was unavoidable; (2) there is no safe, proven, effective prevention and treatment for COVID-19 (including healthy organic food, sunshine and regular exercise, maintaining strong immune systems and microbiomes, pre-existing off-patent generic drugs such as Ivermectin, and nutritional supplements) except for Big Pharma’s “Warp Speed” experimental gene therapy drugs now being injected into hundreds of millions of people; (3) COVID-19 poses a mortal threat to everyone, young and old, healthy and unhealthy alike, even those who have already become infected, fought off the disease, and developed robust antibody defenses against COVID variants; (4) future pandemics like COVID-19 are inevitable and unavoidable, and therefore the body politic must blindly obey authority, roll up our sleeves, sacrifice freedom of speech, constitutional rights, and medical choice in exchange for what the elite claim is our personal safety and the common good.

There is no doubt that SARS-CoV-2 is a dangerous biological trigger for those advanced in age and/or afflicted by serious pre-existing medical conditions or comorbidities, such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, and heart disease. A primary reason why SARS-CoV-2 is so dangerous is because it has been genetically engineered in a laboratory, essentially weaponized to attack multiple organs, not just the lungs, in vulnerable people. One in every five hundred Americans (mostly those 75 or older) died in 2020 with COVID-19 listed as a factor on their death certificate.

Those at high risk need to be protected by protocols developed by frontline doctors and practitioners such as the group. Prevention and early treatment are absolutely necessary.

COVID must be a wakeup call to implement Food as Medicine and natural health programs in nursing homes, hospitals, and schools, as well as among Food Stamp, Medicare, and Medicaid recipients. Organic food and access to natural health information, supplements, and practices must be seen as a right, not a privilege for all Americans, especially those struggling with chronic disease and poor health, those living in low-income communities, women of childbearing age, students, and youth.

Censorship and cover ups stifling free and open discussion between doctors, health practitioners, scientists, and the general public must be eliminated immediately along with the manipulation of health statistics, data on vaccine safety and efficacy, along with all medical observation and research. Those guilty of the crime of censoring and deliberately manipulating information regarding the true origins, nature, virulence, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19 need to be exposed and brought to justice.

At the same time so-called “gain-of-function” (actually gain-of-threat) engineering of viruses, bacteria, insects, and microorganisms—making these pathogens or insects more transmissible of virulent, must be completely banned, in the US and across the world.
