Fact Check: Zelenko Interview Does NOT Show World Is Living Through Global Biological Weapons Attack -- It's Laundry List Of Disproven COVID Vaccine Claims Disinfomercial

Does a 54-minute video interview featuring elaborate conspiracy theories show we are living through a global bioweapons attack? No, that's not true: The video includes a lengthy list of claims and charges that have already been debunked. No evidence is provided to support the notion of a worldwide bioweapons attack by a cabal bent on global dominion.

The interview was published by Rumble on October 30, 2021, as a video (archived here) titled "Dr. Zelenko - We Are Living Through A Global Bio Weapon Attack, People Have The Cure To Fight It." It opened:

Dr. Zelenko Board Certified Family Physician with over 20 years experience. Dr. Zelenko was nominated for the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Nobel Prize , Dr. Zelenko's team was one of the first in the country to successfully treat thousands of Covid-19 patients in the prehospital setting. Dr. Zelenko developed his now famous 'Zelenko Protocol,' which has saved countless lives worldwide. Dr. Zelenko recommended that President Trump take hydroxychloroquine. Dr. Zelenko begins the conversation explaining we are living through a global bio weapon attack, the people have the cure to fight it. But this attack was well coordinated and the world elite were in on it. There main goal is depopulation and control.

This is what the post looked like on Rumble on November 5, 2021:

The nearly hourlong video features Vladimir Zelenko, M.D., who sells a dietary supplement called Z-Stack. While launching into vaccine conspiracy theories and defending unproven medical treatments, he pushes his answer to the pandemic -- a system of exercising, eating right and taking supplements to boost your immune system. An April 2, 2020, article in the New York Times described how the small-town doctor's COVID-19 treatment protocol, which included the drug hydroxychloroquine, caught the attention of then-President Donald Trump and was promoted by the president's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

The video opens with Zelenko claiming a system of eugenics and genocide, making reference to the Holocaust, is behind the pandemic and the COVID vaccines being used to fight the virus. Eugenics refers to efforts aimed at increasing desirable traits while decreasing undesirable traits in living things, in this case, people. At 2:45 in the video he says:

"In retrospect, we've ... reverse-engineered the worst crime in human history.

Zelenko continues at the 4:10 mark with his eugenics theories and debunked claims about injectable tracking systems in COVID vaccines:

If you look at it as if our government is our worst enemy and is actually part of a -- I'll say it outright -- a eugenics program that is designed to murder a percentage of us immediately and then chronic illnesses make infertile the rest and, according to recent patents that were filed and approved -- United States patents -- that prove that there are tracking technology in these vaccines.

A few minutes later Zelenko pushes the debunked claim that Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier said all vaccinated people will die within two years. He did not. He expressed concerns aboutconcerns about vaccines causing antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) but did not make the doomsday prediction. Zelenko's misquote of Montagnier comes at 8:10:

I'm relying on the word of world experts. Dr. Luc Montagnier, a very important person, won a Nobel Prize in 2008 for discovering HIV, said that this is the biggest risk of genocide to the human race in history.

About 20 minutes later, he adds:

We are living through a global bioweapon attack. No one is denying that.

At 30:30 into the video, Zelenko adds the debunked claim that COVID vaccines cause infertility. He then pivots to the recent approval of the Pfizer vaccine for children as young as 5, saying kids are now in the crosshairs of global biological warfare:

What is the endgame with children? I think that they're trying to ... It's a tool of eugenics, you know. What is eugenics? Eugenics is the belief that there's a hierarchy in humanity based on survivability ...

And then Zelenko returns to the Holocaust, claiming that the Nazis killed 200 million people. The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum estimates that 18 million people were murdered by the Nazi regime and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945.

He says the global response to the pandemic is an echo of World War II and is a global bioweapons attack. At 31:50 Zelenko says:

The Holocaust was a dry run for what's going on now. They're targeting ... all of humanity to reduce the world population. And the reason why is very simple: That the technology has evolved to such a degree that the majority of manual labor will be replaced through AI [artificial intelligence] and humanoid robots.

Zelenko concludes 21:45 that nearly everything surrounding the pandemic is a conspiracy, from the coronavirus itself to the lockdowns, testing, vaccines and boosters.

The whole point of this global trauma is to motivate 7 billion people to choose to take the poison death shot.

There is no publicly available evidence the COVID vaccines are lethal or poisonous.

Throughout the video, he refers to COVID vaccines and boosters as "poison death shots" that produce "lethal antibodies." To back his vaccine disinformation, he often cites the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, co-sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration.

Lead Stories has debunked numerous claims about vaccine deaths that misuse VAERS.

Anyone with internet access can add a report to the VAERS list of reports. The public access link to it expressly warns against unwarranted conclusions based on VAERS material because the list only provides a tally of unverified notes about any health event people experience after they are vaccinated.

The list itself cannot be used to prove or quantify, since all it shows is a chronological correlation, not the causal link that would be more difficult to establish. It's the equivalent of a police precinct's running "blotter" reports that may serve as a starting point for police work, not an endpoint.

VAERS website warnings include:

When evaluating data from VAERS, it is important to note that for any reported event, no cause-and-effect relationship has been established. Reports of all possible associations between vaccines and adverse events (possible side effects) are filed in VAERS. Therefore, VAERS collects data on any adverse event following vaccination, be it coincidental or truly caused by a vaccine. The report of an adverse event to VAERS is not documentation that a vaccine caused the event.

Similar in its scope and long list of claims, Lead Stories previously debunked a 52-page pdf by Zelenko entitled, "The Vaccine Death Report," that contains an international cast of claims. This collection carries with it a secondary level of baseless conspiratorial beliefs underpinning most of the talking points that are summarized at the end -- that there is a secret criminal network that has been buying the entire health industry, directs the World Health Organization, owns all mass media, runs most governments and operates in the shadows with a global plot to suppress COVID treatments, hide vaccine deaths and intentionally kill people, mislabeling their deaths as COVID.
