The Malone controversy: Part Two
By Cherie Zaslawsky
October 6, 2023

On the home front, Robert Malone describes his wife Jill as his “fellow warrior” and business partner, so it’s worth noting that Jill Glasspool Malone, as Diana West has pointed out from perusing her LinkedIn profile, apparently admires a number of globalist powermongers as well as Big Pharma companies and governmental agencies, including the US Department of Health and Human Services and BARDA (Biomedical Advanced Research and. Development Authority), among others.

Take a look at this four minute video revealing Jill’s “influencers” on her LinkedIn page which has since been scrubbed: Bill Gates, Melinda French Gates, Richard Branson, and Justin Trudeau. The Malones seem to be very much on the same page, so her fellow warrior husband may well share her esteem for these powerful players.

Though perhaps the biggest red flag regarding Malone’s transition to critic of the mRNA shots, is that it took him a couple of years to adopt this new stance. Dr. Peter Breggin and Dr. Paul Alexander, among others, have been quick to point this out. Had Malone spoken out against the experimental gene therapy technique back in early 2021, thousands of lives could have been saved. Make that millions.

In fact, Dr. Breggin discovered a scientific paper Malone and MIT’s Darrell O. Ricke published on ResearchGate in January 2020, at the very first mention of Covid-19. They concluded that all SARS-CoV-2 vaccines were dangerous, due to the phenomenon of Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE). (emphasis mine)

Here’s an excerpt from the Breggin’s article: Could This Man Have Saved the World?

In the section on Vaccine Risks for Antibody-dependent Enhancement (ADE), Ricke and Malone write that their research “leads to the prediction that new attempts to create … SARS-CoV-2 vaccines have potentially higher risks for inducing ADE in humans…” This is a critically important dire statement about a very dangerous situation.

In addition, according to his wife Jill, Malone continued to work on cationic liposomes for mRNA vaccines during the 1990s, but discovered that: “unfortunately, the toxicity issues from the nano lipid particles that Dr. Malone observed in his research during the 1990s were never resolved.” Wouldn’t that also be something of great moment for Malone to announce to the world in 2020 and 2021?

But there’s another issue we need to address. Dr. Breggin has assembled a list of heroes in the health freedom movement that Malone has reportedly gone after in one way or another: Peter and Ginger Breggin, Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Harvey Risch, Dr. Judy Mikovits, Dr. Jane Ruby, Foster Coulson, and more.

Here's an example from Malone’s Substack:

    “I learned last night that Drs. Peter McCullough and Harvey Risch have joined a company that is promoting overpriced vitamins, nutraceuticals, and telemedicine. The Wellness Company. This firm is headed up by a physician formerly with the Global Covid Summit group, and is now quite antagonistic to us. This firm is controlled by Mr. Foster Colson, head of the Colson group….”

I wonder who the “us” is, and also why Malone would cast aspersion on courageous Dr. McCullough who has sacrificed his career to stand up for our medical/health freedom and is endeavoring to offer the public better medical care than most of us get through Big Medicine/Big Insurance.

But the centerpiece of Malone’s attack is of course the $25 million defamation lawsuit against Peter and Ginger Breggin. Obviously, a lawsuit of this magnitude is not primarily about clearing one’s name of defamation (which ostensibly never took place), but of destroying the target of the suit. The Breggins are octogenarians, and this lawsuit would surely bankrupt them.

However, Malone may have just gotten an unexpected wake-up call. As the Breggins report: Judge Moon, who’s presiding over Malone’s defamation case against the Washington Post as well as his case against themselves, ordered his clerk to “STRIKE this case [Malone v The Washington Post] from the docket.” He invoked Virginia’s Anti-SLAPP law which allows a judge to dismiss a case deemed without merit…”. And the cherry on top? The Judge warned Malone in no uncertain terms to stop filing meritless defamation suits. (Emphasis mine)


How did Malone come up with not one but two fearmongering Belgians? Is there something in the water in Belgium these days? We’ll consider psychologist Mattias Desmet below, but let’s give Geert Vanden Bossche his due now.

You may recall Vanden Bossche as the man who sounded a frantic alarm against “vaccinating during a pandemic!” which he asserted would force the virus to mutate to deadly strains, unleashing “a global catastrophe without equal.” It may also be worth noting that Bossche is affiliated with “the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis and other vaccine proponents.” And that the “cure” he touted for this emergency was…more vaccines!

Turns out it isn’t mere coincidence that Malone has discovered these men and their dismal theories—at least not in the case of Vanden Bossche. Here’s what Malone said in an interview he did on Stew Peters’ show on January 28th, 2022 regarding Bossche:

“… I’m compelled by my friend and colleague and former co-worker from Solvay Vaccines, Geert Vanden Bossche, that his reasoning about the development of escape mutants under the pressure of universal vaccination is dead on!”

Later in the same 2022 interview, apparently echoing Bossche’s theory, Malone says: “We are basically breeding superbugs.”

And just days before this interview, during Senator Johnson’s round table discussion: Covid-19: A Second Opinion, after stating we don’t need any more fearmongering, Malone reintroduced Bossche’s alarming theory, warning the panel about deadly new variants emerging as a result of universal vaccination.

However, there seem to be a couple of problems with that dire thesis.

First and foremost, the “plandemic” was hugely overblown. The millions of deaths predicted by the fake computer modeling of Professor Neil Ferguson at Imperial College in London, fortunately never materialized.

Instead, there was an orchestrated psy-op, with a few “Covid hotspots” of undetermined causation—some say through 5G, some say through flu shots, some say through aerosol dispersion of a pathogen, and some say by means of the engineered Covid bioweapon. And while the vaccines themselves may well represent a “global catastrophe without equal,” that has nothing to do with Bossche’s extinction-level killer viral mutations.

But I’m happy to announce that Bossche’s theory of catastrophic variants has been soundly debunked, although most of us had already figured out it was bogus for one simple reason: it didn’t happen.

In fact, hopefully once and for all, Dr. Mike Yeadon, a true hero of the health freedom movement, put the kibosh on that bit of doomsday drama by pointing out that viral variants of Covid—even the ones most drastically different from the “novel virus”—only vary from the original virus by .3%! Not quite enough to wipe out humanity. And not even enough to trick the immune system, which easily recognizes it as the same virus—well, 99.7% the same, scientifically speaking.


There’s a powerful open letter by Sucharit Bhakdi MD, Karina Reiss PhD and Michael Palmer MD entitled The Eternal Dangers of RNA-Vaccines.

It begins this way:

    “This open letter explains the dangers posed by mRNA vaccines, namely, that cells and tissues which take up the vaccine particles will suffer destruction at the hands of the immune system, and furthermore that cells which evade destruction may end up being genetically modified. The risk of genetic modification also pertains to egg and sperm cells and therefore to future generations. Both risks are inherent in this vaccine technology — they are not limited to the mRNA vaccines against COVID-19 alone.“

The authors go on to describe what they call the “fatal flaw” in the mRNA technology:

    “… if mRNA coding for any non-self protein is introduced into a cell, that cell will come under attack by the immune system. This is the fatal flaw that underlies the whole concept”. (Emphasis mine)

And their even more dire warning:

    “In the laboratory, it is possible to insert plasmid DNA into the book of life. If this occurs in vaccinated humans, the possible consequences are unending. Disruption of the exquisitely tuned network that controls cell division and differentiation can lead to cancer. Mutations in sperm and fertilized egg cells could render altered traits inheritable and lead to the creation of beings that have departed from the evolutionary track of the human race.” (Emphasis mine)

And Dr. Peter McCullough has this to say:

    “Synthetic mRNA is turning out to be a disastrous biotechnology for vaccine development. There is no “off switch” for production of dangerous antigens such as the Spike protein from SARS-CoV-2 or the hemagglutinin from influenza. There is no control over where in the body the lipid nanoparticles will deliver the dangerous genetic payload. Additionally, all cells that take up mRNA express foreign proteins on the cell surface inviting an immediate auto-immune attack on cells harboring the mRNA and it’s protein products as described by Dr. Panagis Polykretis.”

Perhaps the question should be raised, regardless of Malone’s presumed good intentions, whether his original genetic experiment was actually an ill-advised, even reckless venture that should have ended where it begun. As Mary Shelley pointed out in her iconic novel Frankenstein over two centuries ago, there’s a line that must not be crossed—experiments that push beyond it lead to catastrophe.


Interestingly, Malone apparently reinvented himself again, leaving behind his decades of work in the medical-biopharmaceutical-industrial-military-intelligence sector(s) where he developed relationships with CIA members among others, while ostensibly working in the Big Money realm of DARPA and BARDA contracts, etc.

Instead of continuing to focus on his area of expertise and the by now obvious dangers of the Covid shots using the mRNA technology he boasts of inventing, Malone threw a wild card into the freedom movement by importing another Belgian, the psychologist Mattais Desmet and his “mass formation” theory.

Perhaps due to Malone’s enthusiastic endorsement of Desmet’s notion of collective hypnosis, this became the talk of much of the freedom movement and many purchased Desmet’s book, The Psychology of Totalitarianism. One of those who critiqued the theory was the eminent psychiatrist Dr. Peter Breggin, a man with impeccable credentials and decades of professional expertise.

But before I turn to what followed between Malone and the Breggins, let me call your attention to another result Malone accomplished by catapulting Desmet and his theories into the freedom movement’s cyberspace:

he changed the subject.


The bad blood between Malone and the Breggins began with Dr. Peter Breggin’s insightful analysis of Mattais Desmet’s “mass formation” hypothesis. One might question why Malone saw fit to strike out at Breggin, a highly esteemed psychiatrist, for critiquing Desmet’s arguably rather slipshod psychological argument. Here’s the gist of the Breggins’ analysis of Desmet’s theory:

    “A careful reading of most of the writings of Desmet and Malone on mass formation or mass psychosis will confirm that their ideas are most consistent with preventing any recognition or effective response to the elites who are now clamping down upon the citizens of the world with totalitarianism.

Dr. Breggin entitles his article: Mass Formation and Mass Psychosis: A False and Dangerous Concept that Threatens Our Freedom.

Here’s another quote:

Their basic idea behind mass formation or mass psychosis is that totalitarianism originates or arises spontaneously out of 30% of the people who become obsessed with giving away their freedom and becoming dependent. The people literally convert themselves into a totalitarian force of psychotic proportions that will eventually violently attack those who disagree with them while creating dictators like Hitler and Stalin. In his book, Desmet states outright:

    “The crowd typically tries to impose its will on the society; it seeks control over society. This has always been the case…” (pp. 126-127)

In short, it is the people, and not the elite, the political class, or the wealthy and powerful predators, who seek to oppress us. It is the “crowd” — a mythological group that did not even exist during the height of COVID-19 oppression because crowds were illegal.

And here’s something recent I found on Desmet’s Substack substantiating Dr. Breggin’s point:

    “Conspiracy theories respond to man’s irresistible urge to reduce the complexity of human existence and human relationships to something simple and understandable. Evil is located in a single object – an evil elite, an evil dictator, a religion, or a group of people – and then free-floating anxiety, frustration and aggression is focused on this one object. A conspiracy theory thus provides a privileged albeit misplaced psychological rationale to form a blind, fanatical mass that gives free rein to all problematic, dark human sentiments.” (Emphasis mine)

In other words: Don’t look at the Davos elites, don’t look at the billionaire globalist psychopaths, look over here instead. Look anywhere else. If you see evil somewhere, that’s just your free-floating anxiety glomming onto some random illusion and turning you into part of a “blind fanatical mass”. OK, Mattais. Got it.

By the way, in one of his posts on his Substack, Malone lists the goals of Agenda 2030—the elite cabal’s dystopian plan for the next seven years—and concludes this way: “Now, many of the above are legitimate goals – BUT for a nation, not as a world governance.” While it’s reassuring to see Malone argue against “world governance,” one might wonder why these communistic, Green New Deal, Great Reset, top-down authoritarian goals would be legitimate for any nation, other than, say, China and North Korea.


Perhaps since Mattias’ theory that we’ve all been hypnotized hasn’t panned out so well, Malone has shifted gears once more, leaving the issue of vaccine dangers even further behind. His new bête noire is 5GW, “Fifth Generation Warfare.” And as with “Mass Formation,” this new subject seems to be more about obfuscating nomenclature than any substantially new information. That our government and mainstream media are conspiring to propagandize us is old news—hardly a revelation to those of us who’ve been paying attention.

At a recent talk he gave at the Liberty Forum of Silicon Valley, Malone announced that Fifth Generation Warfare is not about territory, but about control of our minds through what he calls “unrestricted information warfare.” This is also not news. Alex Jones debuted his show “InfoWars” with his well-known tagline, “There’s a war on for your mind!” more than twenty years ago. But Malone does make his case effectively.


For the third time in three years, Malone was invited to speak at the Liberty Forum of Silicon Valley. He began his talk graciously by delivering a well-deserved compliment to Emcee Jane Kearney, and acknowledging the growth he’s seen in many freedom warriors, to a round of applause. He then harkened back to his “hypnotism” theory, with the claim that 25% of people are readily hypnotized, highly suggestible, and readily go along with whatever an authority tells them to do.

He then pointed out that at the other end of the spectrum, 25% are the skeptics who question everything. And he complimented the audience not only as this 25%, but also suggested that many among us may also be in the 5% “tip of the spear” group of freedom warriors, as were the American Founders.

So now that the audience had been warmed up and nicely flattered, he proceeded with his topic, in which these same brave freedom warriors and wide awake skeptics and questioners were gradually recast as helpless victims of an all-powerful system of propaganda and control that leaves them without the ability to separate fact from fiction or right from wrong or to make rational decisions. Let’s parse this trajectory.

Here are a few quotes:

  • “In the 5GW environment, you no longer have the ability to think and process what’s right and wrong about government policy. You don’t have the material to think about whether that’s a good or bad policy.” What about our common sense? What about our moral compass? All gone?

  • “The idea of you as an independent voter and independent agent being able to have an influence on what your government is doing is completely obsolete…you don’t have the data.” Did we just lose our ability to think and reason, to seek redress of grievances, to protest injustice, and to vote?

  • “Your ability to perceive reality is completely warped.” Aren’t we perceiving it now, in spite of ongoing propaganda?

  • “You’re being highly manipulated within that (constrained) window with sophisticated understanding of how to exploit your own psychological weaknesses.” If that is so, how is it that We the Twenty-Five Percent are still seeking and finding the truth and fighting back?

  • “Everything you see, hear, feel, believe is a manipulated product of a weaponized psychological manipulation technology…and you really no longer have free agency.” Sounds like Winston in Orwell’s novel 1984. We’re clearly not there now, and let’s hope we never get there.

So how did Malone get from Point A, where the audience was informed, awake, aware and standing for freedom, to Point B, where they became hypnotized zombies with no thoughts of their own?

Perhaps for dramatic effect, he did it by blurring a key distinction.

He described what the power elite hopes to achieve as if it were a fait accompli. In doing so, he left out our ability to think, reason, figure things out on our own, our inner sense of right and wrong, and for many of us, our standing firm in the Judeo-Christian tradition. And oh yes, he left God and people’s belief in God out of the equation. No powerful Five Eyes Alliance can trump that.


During his talk, Malone spent a good deal of time explaining that while he’s had, and still has, a number of connections with CIA officers both past and present, he’s on our side and recognizes the CIA and the Five Eyes Alliance of Intel agencies as the real culprits behind 5GWarfare.

At one point, in what may have been an extemporaneous anecdote to prove his point about the difficulty of finding the truth, Malone told a story about an EcoHealth Alliance proposal revealed by Project Veritas. It was a bizarre gain-of-function study involving bat coronaviruses, sent to DARPA.

Malone’s comment is instructive: “And the lovely thing from the standpoint of DARPA is DARPA wouldn’t fund it. And Tony Fauci did at the NIAID. When this came out, I was like, this looks like a smoking gun, but I don’t know that this is possibly real. Because it is so convenient for the Intelligence community to craft a narrative like this that transfers all responsibility over to Tony Fauci in the NIAID and away from us.” (Italics mine.)

Had Malone continued his comment in the third person, that last sentence would have ended: “… for the Intelligence community to craft a narrative like this that transfers all responsibility over to Tony Fauci in the NIAID and away from itself.” In addition, when he made the remark about handing the blame over to Tony Fauci in the NIAID, he thrust his arm out, pointing away from himself, and when he said the word “us” at the end of the sentence, he gestured towards himself. You can see this in the recording of his speech beginning at about 1: 01: 17. Innocent mistake or Freudian slip?


Robert Malone is a complex character—a very intelligent man who has expertise in biodefense and medical research, and a long successful career working for the government in biosecurity projects. He’s now carved out a niche for himself in the freedom movement, where he remains somewhat controversial, in part due to that very background. Some postulate he’s controlled opposition. Some think he’s the cat’s pajamas.

Ironically, were Malone to stop labeling others in the Freedom movement as “haters,” and simply accept that people have the right to critique the work and ideas of those who are prominent in the public sphere, he might go a long way toward ending the controversies.

Along those lines, dropping his defamation lawsuit against the Breggins would have a very salutary effect on the freedom movement. We can ill afford internal squabbling as we face the mounting globalist threats to our lives and liberty.

Are we witnessing a well-meaning man with a prickly ego who’s prone to retaliate against perceived slights that are devoid of ill intent? Or are we witnessing psychologically sophisticated “controlled opposition” by a man who uses pretexts to sow discord within a previously harmonious community?

If the former, one may hope Malone reverses course and transcends this tendency. If the latter, all bets are off.

I’d go so far as to say that if Malone were to win his $25 million defamation suit against the Breggins—heaven forbid—that would signal the end the freedom movement. None of its leaders would likely feel safe from such ruinous lawsuits. The Deep State and globalist cabal would have triumphed, and one must then assume that was the plan all along, which would also seem to provide the definitive answer to the question: Who Is Robert Malone?

Conversely, if he drops his lawsuit, or if it fails, one would hope that in the future, Dr. Malone will direct his ire exclusively at the enemies of freedom, and not at its friends.
